Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth Try to Bring ‘Kung Flu’ Back

Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Pete Hegseth on Thursday night defended the use of racist terms to describe the novel coronavirus, all while wondering why Democrats are “sucking up” to China by decrying these phrases.Taking aim at Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) for introducing a Senate resolution condemning “anti-Asian sentiment as related to COVID-19”—which includes the use of the phrase “Wuhan virus”—Carlson claimed Harris was denouncing “basic facts.” “Why is she sucking up to the government of ...

Third Climate Win for May 2020

The coronavirus pandemic has led to a resurgence of home and urban gardening that some say harkens to the Victory gardens planted during World War II. An increase in home gardening is positive on many levels, not least because raided store shelves and the panic-buying of chickens for homegrown eggs have exposed how fragile our food systems are. To sustainably feed the estimated 10 billion people that could live in cities by 2050, however, the world must think large-scale. Decimating rainfore...

'This is insane': Democrats and national security experts sound the alarm after Trump administration declares it's abandoning a critical treaty

The White House's abandonment of the Open Skies Treaty was widely condemned by Democratic lawmakers and national security experts. Retired US Air Force general and former National Security Agency director Michael Hayden described it as "insane." Countries that sign the treaty can conduct short-notice observational flights over other signatories to verify the status of each other's military forces, but the US has accused Russia of restricting its access. Some Republicans applauded the withdrawa...

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer prevailed Thursday in a high-stakes challenge from Republican lawmakers who sued over her authority to declare emergencies and order sweeping restrictions during the coronavirus outbreak. A 1945 law cited by Whitmer, a Democrat, is not limited to regional emergencies and can have no end date, said Judge Cynthia Stephens of the Court of Claims. The lawsuit by the House and Senate grew out of frustration with Whitmer's one-size strategy to stop the spread of the corona...

Trump Argues There Isn’t Good Enough ‘Reason’ To Vote By Mail As COVID Ravages Nation

Voting by mail to avoid falling victim to a global pandemic? You gotta have a better excuse than that, says President Donald Trump. Falsely claiming that mail-in voting would lead to “total election fraud,” Trump told reporters Thursday on the White House lawn that only very special exceptions, including one that happens to apply to himself, should allow people to forgo in-person voting and mail their ballots instead. “If somebody has to mail it in because they’re sick or, by the way, because...

Why The White House Shouldn’t Cite Jimmy Carter In Voter Fraud Claims

To undergird President Donald Trump’s Wednesday tweet storm about punishing states that expand voting by mail, the White House cited a report produced in 2005 by a commission co-chaired by former President Jimmy Carter.  “There was a 2005 commission by none other than President Carter, who is not a member of the Republican Party, and also by James Baker about this, concluding that these ballots ‘remain the largest source of potential voter fraud’,” said Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany at ...

Where Things Stand: Preemptive Plans To Memorialize Our Dead

We shouldn’t have to plan how to mourn this much loss. As John Hopkins University reported this week, more than 93,000 Americans have died from COVID-19 since the outbreak first struck the U.S. mere months ago. This morning Democratic leadership sent President Trump a letter, requesting that American flags be flown at half staff once the death toll in the U.S. reaches 100,000. The request was simple enough, but our dear leader has a history of raising stink over flag lowering. He resisted the...
