FLASHBACK - Where Are They Now? These 23 Celebrities Said They'd Move If Trump Won

Back in September, my colleague Catherine Dunn published this nice compilation of 23 celebrities who said they would be leaving the country if Donald Trump were elected president. Given that Trump was indeed elected president and will be inaugurated on Friday, I thought it would be prudent to check in and see if any of these celebrities had stayed true to their word.

It's time to find out: have they decided that America is actually already pretty great?

WATCH: Province to expand digital services with new action plan

The Ontario government released an action plan today which it states is a roadmap to make public sector services more digitally accessible.

In a press release issued today, the government explained "One of the projects identified in the Action Plan is developing a digital identity, based on digital wallet technology. Starting in January 2021, the government will consult with industry on how the province could introduce a secure digital identity for Ontarians by the end of 2021, allowing citizens to safely verify their identity, online or in person. A digital identity will make life easier and more convenient, while protecting people's data and helping to combat identity fraud."

Ghislaine Maxwell loses fight to keep her Jeffrey Epstein testimony sealed

A federal appeals court dealt Ghislaine Maxwell, the alleged madam to disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein, twin blows late Monday by declining to consolidate her appeals in numerous overlapping cases and striking down her effort to thwart release of a controversial deposition she gave in a now-settled civil lawsuit.

The three-judge Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit held more than two hours of oral arguments last week, and issued a succinct Monday afternoon order holding that a lower court judge did not err in ordering the release of a 418-page deposition from April 2016 that could shed new light on the Epstein empire.

“We have reviewed all of the arguments raised by Defendant-Appellant Maxwell on appeal and find them to be without merit,” the judges wrote, also turning away a request for consolidation with Maxwell’s criminal case in the Southern District of New York. “We DENY the motion to consolidate this appeal with the pending appeal in United States v. Maxwell.”

Hell Yes, InSight’s Heat Probe Is Now Completely Buried on Mars

There’s some happy news to report from the Red Planet, as the stubborn Mars InSight heat probe, known as “the mole,” is now completely buried. It’s an encouraging development, as the surrounding dirt could coax the device into drilling deeper through the Martian crust.

The ongoing saga of the InSight lander’s Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package has taken an important turn, or at least we hope. The self-hammering drill, built by the German space agency (DLR) and operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is now completely obscured by red Martian dirt—a sign that it may soon be able to dig properly, since it needs friction to move downwards. Up until this point, it’s mostly been bouncing up and down like a useless pogo stick.

All 62 residents at Kansas nursing home have COVID, 10 have died

A coronavirus outbreak has killed 10 residents in a Kansas nursing home, and the local health department said every one of the residents had tested positive for COVID-19 as of Monday, along with an unspecified number of staff. The affected home is in northwest Kansas' Norton County, which has seen one of the largest proportional increases in confirmed coronavirus cases over two weeks in the country.

Iran To Import North Korean missiles In 25-Year Military Deal With China

NASA Curiosity rover accidentally cracks Mars rock with its feisty drill

NASA's Curiosity rover is being a bit of a homewrecker on Mars and leaving wheel tracks and drill holes in its wake. The latest sign of activity is a cracked rock from a recent drilling session.

The rover put its drill to work to gather a rock sample for analysis. "In the process of drilling, Curiosity broke the rock, which can sometimes happen when we are close to an edge, but still collected enough sample to perform detailed analyses," said NASA-JPL mission operations engineer Ashley Stroupe in a rover update on Friday.

Betelgeuse, the unusually dimming star, is smaller and closer than scientists thought

The red giant star Betelgeuse, which was thought to be on the brink of a supernova explosion, is still revealing more secrets, even after the Hubble Space Telescope helped solve the mystery of why it has looked a little dimmer than usual.

The star, which is visible in the Orion constellation, is actually smaller and closer than previously believed, researchers discovered.
The new study published Friday in The Astrophysical Journal.
Although the star has been well studied, Betelgeuse is regularly one of the brightest stars in our sky, which makes it harder to observe and study using telescopes, and more difficult to pin down its size and distance.

Asteroid Isn't Going to Hit Earth the Day Before Election, Despite Neil deGrasse Tyson's Warning of 'Buzz-Cut'

An asteroid will hurtle safely past Earth on the eve of the U.S. presidential election, although astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has said it could come close enough to "buzz-cut" the Earth.

While some news headlines have suggested that the space rock, dubbed 2018 VP1, could strike our planet on November 2, data from NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) suggests there is zero chance of that happening—although it could be a close shave.

"Asteroid 2018 VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 25,000 miles per hour," deGrasse Tyson wrote on Twitter. "It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election."

NASA is launching a 4G mobile network on the moon

Just as 5G arrives on planet Earth, its predecessor is heading to the moon.

NASA has selected Nokia to build the first-ever 4G mobile network on Earth’s natural satellite, the Finnish telecommunications firm announced Monday.

The company’s U.S. industrial research arm, Bell Labs, is offering up its equipment to NASA to help build out the lunar network, with the aim of launching it in late 2022.

“The solution has been specially designed to withstand the harsh conditions of the launch and lunar landing, and to operate in the extreme conditions of space,” Nokia said in a press release.

Lockheed picks Relativity’s 3D-printed rocket for experimental NASA mission

Relativity Space has bagged its first public government contract, and with a major defense contractor at that. The launch startup’s 3D-printed rockets are a great match for a particularly complex mission Lockheed is undertaking for NASA’s Tipping Point program.

The mission is a test of a dozen different cryogenic fluid management systems, including liquid hydrogen, which is a very difficult substance to work with indeed. The tests will take place on a single craft in orbit, which means it will be a particularly complicated one to design and accommodate.

The payload itself and its cryogenic systems will be designed and built by Lockheed and their partners at NASA, of course, but the company will need to work closely with its launch provider during development and especially in the leadup to the actual launch.

PCHR: Report on Israeli Human Rights Violations in the Occupied Palestinian Territory

Summary of Israeli Violations of Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory for October 8–14, 2020

Israeli occupation forces (IOF) continued to commit crimes and multifaceted violations against Palestinian civilians and their properties, including raids into Palestinian cities that are characterized with excessive use of force, assault, abuse and attacks on civilians. This week, IOF attacks rendered 18 Palestinian civilians wounded in excessive use of force, including 2 children, in the West Bank. Settler-attacks and confiscation of Palestinians’ properties continued, under the pretext of working without permits.

To date, Maher al-Akhras, 50-year-old administrative detainee, hunger strike enters his 81st consecutive day, in protest of his arrest with no charge or trial under administrative detention despite the deterioration of his health condition. Al-Akhras entered into a hunger strike from the first day of his detention on 27 July 2020.

Mr Netanyahu goes to Washington - with a dangerous military shopping list

The recent deals spearheaded by US President Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to normalise relations between the UAE, Bahrain and Israel offered something for everyone.

The two Gulf states formalised secret relations going back years, in their mutual fight against arch-rival Iran. After signing the Abraham Accords, Israel, one of the largest arms exporters in the world, may now sell billions in weapons and cyber-surveillance technology openly in the Gulf. No longer will Israeli firms have to create foreign shell companies to conceal their dealings with the Arab world.

The US has committed to maintaining Israel's military superiority in the region ... at the expense of the peace and security of Arab nations who lack these advanced weapons

Israeli settlers' racism is not an aberration. It's part of an apartheid system

The Israeli settlement of Yitzhar, long a byword for nationalist extremism and anti-Palestinian violence, was in the news again on Monday, after residents erected a sign outside the settlement stating: “This road leads to the community of Yitzhar - Entry for Arabs is dangerous.”

As explained by Haaretz, the background to the stunt was an incident two weeks ago, when "an Arab medical worker who was sent to conduct a Covid-19 test was refused entry to Yitzhar", reportedly on the basis that "he was an Arab".

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was no saint

The news of US Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death at the age of 87 was as much expected as dreaded by a US liberal elite sick and tired of Donald Trump’s presidency.

The deeply loved and widely admired Ginsburg had been battling cancer for years. But the inevitable news hit cyberspace like a thunderbolt last month.

In the US and for her liberal admirers, Ginsburg, the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court, has justly achieved a larger-than-life historic stature, comparable to the other legendary Supreme Court justice, Thurgood Marshall. That stature, however, was at least temporarily overshadowed by the urgent fact that her death - just a few weeks before the election - meant Trump and the Senate Republicans would want to push her replacement through as swiftly as possible.

Ransomware gang donates part of ransom demands to charity organizations

A ransomware gang has donated a part of the ransom demands it extorted from victims to charity organizations.

Current recipients include Children International, a non-profit for sponsoring children in extreme poverty, and The Water Project, a non-profit aiming to provide access to clean and reliable water across sub-Saharan Africa.

Each organization received 0.88 bitcoin (~$10,000) last week, according to transactions on the Bitcoin blockchain [1, 2].

The sender was a ransomware group going by the name of Darkside.

Active since August 2020, the Darkside group is a classic "big game hunter," meaning it specifically goes after large corporate networks, encrypts their data, and asks huge ransom demands in the realm of millions of US dollars.

Google Releases 'Black-Owned Business' Badge to Divert Money Away From Whites

Apparently lots of people have been searching for Black-owned businesses as a way to atone for the sins of systemic racism… or something. This is a way for “bleeding hearts” to give a further hand up to black businesses, as if all the affirmative action, scholarships and grants were not enough. If the federal government is not going to pay out reparations, it is up to the people to enact some financial justice.

Yelp has allowed for people to filter through business listings in order to specifically find Black-owned businesses, and now Google is getting in on the act by giving Black owners their own special badge.

How Real Men (And A Woman) Respond to Systemic Anti-Whiteness

How is it possible to debate Critical Race Theory yet fail to mention its salient characteristic—that it is exclusively and ethnocidally anti-white?

Easily, if one is a Beltway conservative. They complain a lot about Critical Race Theory, and construct elaborate theories around its crass cornerstone, yet seem constitutionally or congenitally incapable of calling it what it is: anti-white agitprop.

One Federalist piece, “Critical Race Theory Is A Classic Communist Divide-And-Conquer Tactic,” brings it back to communism. Quite how this adds up is unclear, but the author decries a way of thinking that exploits the amorphous “tragedy of racial divisions in America.” In essence, some bad people with a communistic manual and mindset aren’t interested in healing us. Boohoo.

Really? Did communism, an equal-opportunity oppressor, revolve around the exclusive blackening of whites?

Media Responds With Apathy, Disappointment as US-Backed Coup Gov’t Concedes Defeat in Bolivia

Bolivia’s Movement to Socialism (MAS) party is celebrating what appears to be a crushing, landslide victory in Sunday’s elections. Although official vote counting is far from over, exit polls show an overwhelming triumph for the socialists, and a repudiation of the right-wing military government of Jeanine Añez, who has ruled since the coup last November. At the same time, the corporate press appears less than pleased about the return to democracy for the Andean country.

In order to win outright in the first round, the top candidate needs at least 40 percent of the popular vote and a lead of 10 points over their nearest rival, and multiple polls have indicated that the MAS ticket of Luis Arce and David Choquehuanca has won more than 50 percent, and have achieved a lead of over 20 points on their nearest challenger, Carlos Mesa (president between 2003 and 2005) — quite a feat in a five-way election. The MAS is also expected to have won a large majority in the senate.

Jewish Organization Admits to Role Censoring Donald Trump and Conservatives On Facebook and Twitter; Promises More

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), America’s most prominent Zionist lobby, is the main culprit behind the social media censorship of Donald Trump and his supporters, according to its CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

In an October 14th interview with the Times of Israel, Greenblatt credited a variety of ADL led groups such as “Stop Hate For Profit” and the “Real Facebook Oversight Board” for inducing the social media crackdown on Q-Anon, bans on Holocaust revisionism, and an aggressive program dedicated to “fact checking” political ads and news stories.

A recent study found that Trump ads on Facebook have been censored 65 times under the guise of “fact checking” while no Biden promotions have been tampered with.

How Long Has The U.S. Intelligence Apparatus Been Selecting Presidential Candidates?…

One would have to be intellectually obtuse to think former President Barack Obama was unaware his Vice-President, Joe Biden, was raking in tens-of-millions from his use of Hunter Biden as family bagman while lobbying foreign governments.

With that in mind; and considering all of the downstream consequences from the original selection of Joe Biden as the VP candidate; and considering how those in power now have the tool of the NSA database to control political offices; how long has the intelligence apparatus been involved in selecting the U.S. presidential candidates?

Robert Reich vows purges and show trials of conservatives if Biden is elected

Is the average American voter really thinking about all the ways to get back at voters who voted for President Trump?

Well, it's what certain influential Democrats want, full blown show-trials and purges, same as the communists pioneered. Seems that equality and redistribution, don't really motivate them in the promises of socialism -- purges, show trials, Gulags and re-education camps are what get them going.

Biden's tax plan will lead to a combined rate of at least 62% for those making more than $400k in some states - the highest increase in three decades, tax group claims

The highest earners in the states of New York, New Jersey and California could end up facing a combined state and federal tax rate of 62% under Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's tax plan, in what would be the highest tax rate implemented in more than 30 years.

The high rate would affect those earning more than $400,000 whilst those earning below that level would likely receive tax cuts, according to the Tax Foundation, a low-tax advocacy group.

The analysis does not reflect what people pay in reality, because it does not include any tax dedications, offests or credits, which people all routinely claim and which lead to the effective tax rate.

Shoplifting, Risky Behavior Ramp Up at SF Walgreens During Pandemic: Workers

Employees and customers at a San Francisco Walgreens are calling for additional staff, security, and protective equipment during the COVID-19 pandemic, saying shoplifting and dangerous behavior inside the store have reached new heights during the city’s weeks-long stay at home order.

A series of videos taken by customers and provided to NBC Bay Area appear to show shoplifters cleaning out store shelves, undeterred by employees and customers yelling at them to stop. One video shows a customer pushing an apparent shoplifter out of the store.

“They come and then take all the merchandise, the food – especially the food” said a Walgreens employee who NBC Bay Area is not identifying. “And then they say, ‘We have the virus. We got tested positive. We have the virus.”

Senior Google Manager On Search Engine’s Power: ‘You Are Just Plain And Simple Trying To Play God’… ‘The Power’s In The Search’ … ‘Trump Says Something, Misinformation, You’re Gonna Delete’ … ‘If A Democratic Leader Says That, Then, You’re Gonna Leave It’

A senior Google manager exposed the search engine and social media giant’s suppression of speech and democracy in a Project Veritas report released today.

“I feel suffocated at Google,” said Ritesh Lakhkar, a technical program manager in Google’s Cloud division, to a Project Veritas undercover journalist. “Because on one side you have this professional or unprofessional attitude, and on the other side, you have this ultra-leftist attitude, and your entire existence is questioned.”

Lakhkar said Google exercises deity-like control over the information Americans receive.

“You’re like playing selective God,” he said.

Watch: Google Whistleblower Tells Veritas Search Engine Is "Skewing Results" To Benefit Democrats

A person who claims to be a program manager at Google Cloud has told investigative journalists with Project Veritas that the search engine is intentionally manipulating results in order to benefit the Democrats and to hinder President Trump’s campaign.

Ritesh Lakhkar, who identified himself as a technical program manager at Google’s Cloud service, made the comments in footage released Monday. The interview appears to have been filmed without Lakhkar’s knowledge.

The project manager accused Google of “playing god” with US politics, and of ‘skewing’ it’s algorithms to project negative news and talking points where Trump is concerned.

Crime Pays: Goldman Strikes $2BN Deal With DoJ To Avoid All Charges Tied To 1MDB

Goldman Sachs is reportedly on the cusp of settling one of the biggest criminal cases involving a Wall Street bank since the financial crisis: According to a Bloomberg News report published late Monday evening, the Vampire Squid has reached a tentative agreement with the DoJ to pay more than $2 billion in penalties - a figure that BBG noted is "broadly in line with analysts expectations" - and - here's the key bit - allows the bank to avoid all criminal penalties.

That last bit is especially important, because, as we've chronicled over the past few years, many of the bank's top executives appeared to have been personally involved with the deal, which was initially brought in by Tim Leissner, formerly the bank's top man in Southeast Asia, before he was suspended over the deal, before agreeing to cooperate with the Feds against his former employer (where he reportedly told authorities about the endemic "culture of corruption" at play within the bank).

Commission Changes Rules To Mute Microphones During Next Debate; Trump "Remains Committed" To Debate

Trump campaign statement on debate commission rule changes

"President Trump is committed to debating Joe Biden regardless of last minute rule changes from the biased commission in their latest attempt to provide advantage to their favored candidate.

This was supposed to be the foreign policy debate, so the President still looks forward to forcing Biden to answer the number one relevant question of whether he's been compromised by the Communist Party of China.

Why did Biden allow his son Hunter to sell access to him while he was vice president, and why were there Chinese payment arrangements for Joe himself worked out by Hunter and his sketchy partners?

If the media won't ask Joe Biden these questions, the President will, and there will be no escape for Biden."

Photo of Beheaded Paris Teacher Reportedly Distributed by Daesh as it Warns 'Swords Will Not Stop'

On 16 October, France was shaken by the gruesome beheading of 47-year-old Paris teacher Samuel Paty, who is thought to have been killed for showing a caricature of the prophet Muhammad to his students. An 18-year-old immigrant of Chechen origin who was the principal suspect in the murder was shot and killed by police during an arrest attempt.

A graphic "cutout photo" of decapitated French teacher was published in the latest issue of an online magazine allegedly run by Daesh* supporters in India, with terrorists threatening to attack everyone engaged in blasphemy against Prophet Mohammed, according to Homeland Security Today.

The outlet in question reportedly accompanied the pic of the victim's severed head, which is said to have been originally shared by the teacher’s murderer on his social media, with an image of sword and the following message:

Live Updates: Azerbaijan Claims to Have Destroyed 4 Armenian S-300s in Karabakh Flare-up

No air raid sirens and no explosions were heard in the capital of the unrecognised Republic of Artsakh (Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh) during the night or in the early hours of Tuesday, a Sputnik correspondent reports.

The foreign minister of the unrecognised Nagorno-Karabakh Republic (NKR), Masis Mayilyan, attended a meeting with diplomats of foreign states accredited in Armenia and called on them to recognise the independence of the NKR, the NKR Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

On 9 October, talks were held in Moscow between the foreign ministers of Armenia, Azerbaijan and Russia with the aim of reaching a Nagorno-Karabakh ceasefire agreement.

The Moscow meeting resulted in a humanitarian ceasefire that came into force on 10 October but failed to hold. A new truce has since been agreed upon. It came into effect at 20:00 GMT on Saturday, 17 October, but both sides have been reporting violations.

Mosque says it ‘regrets’ sharing video aimed at the beheaded teacher. French interior minister wants it to be closed

A French mosque has expressed regret for sharing a video that is believed to have provoked the gruesome murder of a history and geography teacher. The country’s interior minister has demanded that it be closed down.

The teacher, Samuel Paty, was beheaded last week after he showed his class a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed as part of a lesson on freedom of expression. Police shot and killed the suspect, an 18-year-old Chechen refugee, in a standoff following the grisly attack. The murder, which occurred in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, shook France, triggering demonstrations and a government crackdown against Islamic extremism in the country.

Paty was targeted after the father of one of his students published several videos on social media in which he denounced the instructor as a “thug” and said that he had issued a complaint against him. The videos reportedly spread among the region’s Muslim community and one of them was even shared by a local mosque, the Grand Mosque of Pantin.

‘Playing selective god’: Google ‘whistleblower’ tells Project Veritas that search engine ‘skews’ results in Democrats’ favor

An alleged program manager at Google Cloud has said the search engine monolith is “playing god” in the US political scene, skewing results to benefit Democrats, according to an undercover interview captured by Project Veritas.

In footage published on Monday, the conservative media watchdog shared around eight minutes of an interview with a man identified as Ritesh Lakhkar, said to be a technical program manager at Google’s Cloud service, who accused the company of putting its thumb on the digital scales for the Democrats.

“The wind is blowing toward Democrats, because GOP equals Trump and Trump equals GOP. Everybody hates it, even though GOP may have good traits, no one wants to acknowledge them right now,” Lakhkar said when asked whether Google favors either political party.

Biden-Harris Team Wants to Repeal Protective Laws, Destroy Gun Industry

Biden attacks the industry that produces firearms for the U.S. military, federal, state, and local police agencies. It’s the same industry that more than 15.4 million people turned to in order to obtain firearms this year to protect themselves and their families. Nearly 6.2 million have done so for the first time in 2020. Under a Biden administration, the industry that provides the means for tens of millions of law-abiding Americans to exercise their Second Amendment rights to protect themselves and their loved ones would be at risk.

Portland protesters leave ‘Kill the president’ message on police union building & set fire to pro-cop billboard (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Demonstrators in Portland vandalized the office of the local police union and torched a billboard that expressed support for law enforcement, amid ongoing unrest in the Oregon city that has stretched for months.

Protesters marched to the Portland Police Association (PPA) building on Monday night as they chanted “No justice, no peace.” The building, which had been boarded up after being repeatedly attacked by rioters during previous demonstrations, was then defaced with graffiti. Messages spray-painted on the wood panels included: “Burn this,”“Cops are murderers,” and “Kill the president.”

Dear Vice Chancellor, Don’t get bullied into adopting the IHRA definition of antisemitism

Dear Professor Andy Schofield,

Re the request by the British Secretary of State for Education that Lancaster University adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism.

I’m writing to you as a Jewish student studying at Lancaster University in the hope that you’ll resist the pressure being put on you by the government to adopt what I, and many other Jews in the UK and around the world, believe to be a flawed and deeply problematic document on antisemitism.

First of all though, may I congratulate you on your appointment as Vice Chancellor earlier this year. You’ve arrived in the post at an extraordinary time and I don’t envy you the task of navigating the many challenges of COVID-19 for both your students and staff. I was also glad to see the commitment you’ve made to widening participation and championing equality, diversity and inclusion at Lancaster.

First federal execution of woman in 70 years should kill illusion of American moral superiority, no matter how ‘heinous’ the crime

The US' growing embrace of the death penalty, now openly supported by the federal government, should end its pretense of moral superiority over the rest of the world. And can we stop calling the prison system “corrections,” too?

Despite having the largest prison population – both per capita and by sheer numbers – in the world, the US still unironically calls itself the “land of the free,” habitually lectures other nations about human rights, and holds itself up as a moral authority on the treatment of incarcerated human beings. This has held true even as the federal government has returned to executing prisoners with a vigor that suggests it’s making up for lost time.

Documents acquired by Fox News appear to show Hunter Biden's signature on $85 receipt for repair of laptops left at Delaware store at center of email scandal - while other paperwork reveals FBI's contact with owner

Documents appear to show Hunter Biden's signature on a receipt for $85 at a Delaware computer shop where he dropped off laptops that included details of his international business deals.

Last week a New York Post report claimed that Hunter Biden’s laptop was abandoned at the computer shop in April 2019 for months and was found to contain e-mails that purportedly implicate Joe Biden in his son's international business dealings during his time as Vice President.

The laptop's hard drive was later obtained by the FBI and Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who shared its contents with the Post.

Biden is copying Clinton in embracing the pro-Israel lobby

The future that the US has planned for Palestine is already determined, no matter whether President Donald Trump is re-elected or Joe Biden replaces him in the White House after next month’s election. Nevertheless, it is Biden, with a sizable lead over Trump in the national polls, who Palestinian leaders are championing in the hope that he will tone down Washington’s pro-Israel policies. The Palestinians are overly-optimistic.

This is a familiar scenario for America’s Democrats. Four years ago they saw their presidential candidate Hillary Clinton embracing the pro-Israel lobby in the election campaign. Clinton, in fact, has never hidden her support for the occupation state, and Biden is unlikely to reverse his own decades of staunch backing for Israel.

Jeffrey Toobin was masturbating in front of New Yorker bigs, report says

Now he is the talk of the town.

The New Yorker writer and CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin didn’t just expose himself during a Zoom work meeting — he was allegedly caught masturbating in the call with some of magazine’s biggest names and has now been suspended from the publication.

“I made an embarrassingly stupid mistake, believing I was off-camera,’’ the 60-year-old married Harvard Law School grad said in a stunning admission to Vice, which broke news of the cringe-worthy incident Monday.

“I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,’’ he said.

“I apologize to my wife, family, friends and co-workers.’’

Pandemic to Trigger $4 Trillion Loss in Global Real GDP in 2020

The coronavirus induced recession has plunged many countries into economic uncertainty as a result of the severe containment measures. As expected, the pandemic has triggered massive losses in different sectors of the economy which can be reflected in metrics like the real Gross Domestic Product.

Data presented by Buy Shares projects that the global real GDP will plunge by $3.94 trillion in 2020. The research also shows that the ten most impacted countries will cumulatively lose $696.56 billion in real GDP due to the pandemic.

According to the research, the United States will be the biggest loser at $174.68 billion. South Korea will be the tenth most impacted nation with a loss of $3.76 billion. Elsewhere, China is the only country to emerge with a positive growth of 1.8% or a $51.12 billion gain in real GDP.

Flu cases ‘drop’ 95% compared to last year. Are patients being misdiagnosed as having COVID-19?

COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus and the flu is caused by an influenza virus. These are two similar but distinct types of viruses that can be easily differentiated in a lab. But new data from the CDC may point to the flu being misdiagnosed as COVID-19, resulting in higher coronavirus numbers but much lower flu numbers. In fact, there has been a 95% decrease in flu cases during current weeks 40-41.

This time last year, there were 1251 flu cases reported to the CDC during weeks 40-41. This is about average. But in 2020, we’re seeing a record low number of 61 total flu cases reported in the same time period. It doesn’t take a medical degree to come to the logical conclusion that the flu didn’t suddenly disappear but that it’s simply being misdiagnosed as COVID-19.

Deep state remains fully in charge as Justice Department ignores Trump’s order to declassify all “Russian collusion” docs

It’s been blatantly obvious for years now that the deep state involving elements of the Justice Department and FBI, the ‘mainstream’ media and the intelligence community were involved in a seditious plot to overthrow President Donald Trump.

The plot, devised by none other than Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign (probably when it became obvious to her internal polling staff she wasn’t going to win the election), involved multiple players from several agencies.

Their names are familiar now: Barack Obama, Joe Biden, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Peter Strzok, Andy McCabe, Lisa Page, Bruce Ohr, Glenn Simpson.

But now that they’ve at least been outed, not indicted (yet), and President Trump has Attorney General William Barr overseeing the Justice Department, things are on the right track again, right?

Rapper 50 Cent joins Trump train after seeing Biden’s 62% NYC tax plan

RAPPER 50 CENT, a.k.a. Curtis James Jackson III, bailed on the Joe Biden campaign on Monday after seeing the reality of Biden’s 62% New York City tax plan air on a major network which apparently then forced the controversial performer to Tweet out a screenshot of the broadcast showing the combined tax rate under Biden’s rule.

“WHAT THE F*CK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” the famed entrepreneur Tweeted. “F*CK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya fucking mind.”

Treason In America: An Overview Of The FBI, CIA, And Matters Of "National Security"

As Shakespeare would state in his play Hamlet, “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark,” like a fish that rots from head to tail, so do corrupt government systems rot from top to bottom.

This is a reference to the ruling system of Denmark and not just the foul murder that King Claudius has committed against his brother, Hamlet’s father. This is showcased in the play by reference to the economy of Denmark being in a state of shambles and that the Danish people are ready to revolt since they are on the verge of starving. King Claudius has only been king for a couple of months, and thus this state of affairs, though he inflames, did not originate with him.

Thus, during our time of great upheaval we should ask ourselves; what constitutes the persisting “ruling system,” of the United States, and where do the injustices in its state of affairs truly originate from?

Sperry Exposes The Complete History Of Hunter Biden's Crony-Connected Jobs

Hunter Biden profited from his father’s political connections long before he struck questionable deals in countries where Joe Biden was undertaking diplomatic missions as vice president. In fact, virtually all the jobs listed on his resume going back to his first position out of college, which paid a six-figure salary, came courtesy of the former six-term senator’s donors, lobbyists and allies, a RealClearInvestigations examination has found.

Escobar: There Won't Be An Iranian 'October Surprise'

No Washington-designed “maximum pressure” has been able to derail a crucial milestone this Sunday: the end of the UN arms embargo on Iran, in accordance with UN Security Council 2231, which has endorsed the 2015 JCPOA deal.

The JCPOA – or Iran nuclear deal – was unilaterally ditched by the Trump administration. But that, notoriously, did not prevent it from engaging in a massive campaign since April to convince the proverbial “allies” to extend the arms embargo and simultaneously trigger a snapback mechanism, thus re-imposing all UN sanctions on Tehran.

Foad Izadi, professor of International Studies at Tehran University, summed it all up:

“The US wanted to overthrow the government in Iran but failed obviously, they wanted to get more concessions out of Iran, but they have not been successful and they actually lost concessions. So the policy of maximum pressure campaign has failed.”

Indian Army Captures Chinese Soldier Who 'Strayed' Across Ladakh Border

A Chinese PLA soldier has been apprehended by the Indian Army in the western Himalayan border region of Ladakh on Monday, where both sides have been locked in a fierce border dispute which over the summer broke into hand-to-hand clashes that left at least 20 Indian troops killed.

While the Chinese side has kept quiet about it, Indian military officials say the lone Chinese soldier appears to have strayed across the contested border line where thousands on each side have been based amid a military build-up. Indian media is so far widely reporting the soldier is expected to be returned based on official statements.

Streisand Effect: Twitter Ban On Biden Laptop Scandal Nearly Doubled Visibility According To MIT

Twitter's Orwellian decision to censor the Hunter Biden laptop scandal published by the New York Post completely backfired - 'nearly doubling' its visibility, according to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and media intelligence firm Zignal Labs.

The poorly-thought-through ban triggered the so-called Streisand Effect and helped turn a sketchy article into a must-share blockbuster. And then on Friday, the Republican National Committee filed a Federal Election Commission complaint against Twitter, claiming that the ban “amounts to an illegal corporate in-kind political contribution to the Biden campaign.”


Looking at the firehose of Twitter shares of the URL—including original tweets, retweets, and quote tweets—Zignal found a surge of shares immediately after Twitter instituted the block, jumping from about 5.5 thousand shares every 15 minutes to about 10 thousand. -MIT Technology Review

Democrat-Run Chicago Broke As Mayor Mulls Tax Hikes & Layoffs To Plug $1.2BN Budget Gap

In a sign of where the entire country could soon find itself, the Democrat-run city of Chicago isn't just facing soaring violent crime, but is staring down a whopping $1.2 billion budget deficit, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Naturally the response to what some are already excusing as the city’s "coronavirus-fueled budget deficit" is for Mayor Lori Lightfoot to immediately talk massive tax hikes to plug the hole.

"Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is considering a $94 million property tax increase, layoffs for more than 300 city workers and a gas tax hike as part of her plan to close a $1.2 billion budget deficit, sources told the Tribune," the report says.

Hunter Biden Is Not The Problem, The Problem Is His Dad

It seems in our complicated world many murky relationships develop that come across as inappropriate. Over the years, growing crony capitalism has become the bane of modern society and added greatly to inequality. This is why, when we look at Hunter Biden and how he benefited from his father's role as Vice President an investigation is in order. Even before we get to what happened in Ukraine, the ties between China and the Biden family are too many and too large to ignore. President Trump has received a lot of criticism related to how he gained his wealth, however, almost all of what Trump has done he did as an outsider and not as part of the ruling political class.

Internet Resources Become Weaponized

The current electoral campaign differs from that of 2016 in that the media, both conventional and online, has realized its power and has been openly playing a major role in what might well prove to be a victory across the board for the Democratic Party. At least that is the expectation, bolstered by a flood of possibly suspect opinion polls that appear to make the triumph of Joe Biden and company inevitable while at the same time denigrating President Donald Trump and covering up for Democratic Party missteps.

Turkey to Scrap Idlib Observation Post

The Turkish military has begun withdrawing from the Morek observation post in Idlib, Syria. They set up the post in 2018 and have reinforced it, ruling out ever abandoning it. Officials now say it has no military value and that they are dismantling the base.

This was one of 12 posts which were meant to support Syrian rebels in Idlib. Though Turkey isn’t saying so, this may reflect the rebel weakness in the area, and al-Qaeda’s dominance in Idlib.

Some Turkish officials are reporting that four observation posts and two military sites in Idlib will be going. The sites are said to be inconvenient to defend, and of little use to the rebels.

US Military Bases Are Poisoning Okinawa

Host to 31 U.S. military bases, Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost prefecture, is no stranger to the risks of bearing the burden of the U.S.-Japan alliance. In 1959, the U.S. military accidentally shot a nuclear rocket into a local harbor; six years later, it lost a hydrogen bomb in nearby seas; then in 1969, a leak of nerve agent on the island so shocked the world that President Richard Nixon was forced to renounce his nation’s first-use policy on chemical weapons.

But these incidents pale compared to what Okinawans are facing today: the U.S. military has polluted the drinking water for 450,000 people – a third of the prefecture’s population – in the worst case of environmental contamination in the island’s history.

And the true culprit behind this pervasive problem from sea to shining sea is simply… white people and white racism as a “public health crisis” ultimately compelling black people to gun one another down.

Where Are the Borders of the State of Israel? Why Do They Refuse to Demarcate Them?

When you ask any Israeli government official or diplomat about the borders and map of the State of Israel, surely you will not get a clear answer. Successive Israeli governments, backed up by the Zionist movement worldwide, have ambitions to gain control of most of the occupied Palestinian territory, far exceeding the armistice lines of 1949.

Israel is carrying out this enterprise by strategically confiscating C classified areas amounting to 60% of the West Bank, in addition to its complete control over the city of East Jerusalem, which has been occupied since 1967, and keeping the Gaza Strip separate from the distant Palestinian cities and villages in the West Bank.

The US Military/Security Complex Is Destroying Both Peace and the US Economy

Esper is out making speeches that the military/security complex needs 5% real increase annually in order to counter Russia and China (see this). It is Washington that is aggressive toward Russia and China, not the other way around. The military/security complex desperately needs foreign enemies in order to maximize its budget and power. Russiagate’s purpose was to prevent Trump from removing a valuable “enemy” by normalizing relations with Russia.

The US defense budget could be cut in half and still be larger than the combined defense budgets of Russia and China. China spends about half as much of its economy on defense as the US. If Russia and China intended aggression against the US, wouldn’t you expect to see much higher spending on military?

Dozens to be deliberately infected with coronavirus in UK ‘human challenge’ trials

Young, healthy people will be intentionally exposed to the virus responsible for COVID-19 in a first-of-its kind ‘human challenge trial’, the UK government and a company that runs such studies announced on 20 October. The experiment, set to begin in January in a London hospital if it receives final regulatory and ethical approval, aims to accelerate the development of vaccines that could end the pandemic.

Human challenge trials have a history of providing insight into diseases such as malaria and influenza. The UK trial will try to identify a suitable dose of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that could be used in future vaccine trials. But the prospect of deliberately infecting people — even those at low risk of severe disease — with SARS-CoV-2, a deadly pathogen that has few proven treatments, is uncharted medical and bioethical territory.

PIERS MORGAN: Despite the best, biased efforts of Facebook, Twitter and the overwhelmingly Trump-hating media to kill the story, Biden now has serious questions to answer about Hunter's dodgy deals and he can't duck them forever

Four days ago, the New York Post published a bombshell report raising serious new questions about presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son Hunter's relationship with Ukranian energy company Burisma.

The story, which made startling and apparently damning reading was based on a cache of emails and photos allegedly retrieved from Hunter Biden's laptop that he had left at a Delaware computer store.

I have no idea if the report is entirely true, partly true, or completely untrue.

But I’m not sure rebellious high ecclesiastics have ever gone as far as now.

New book claims Prince Andrew 'laughed as teen sex trafficking victim took part in a topless photoshoot with eight Russian models at Epstein's Virgin Islands hideaway' – but royal source denies the 'lurid' accusations

Prince Andrew has been accused of watching and laughing as an alleged teen sex trafficking victim took part in a topless photoshoot with eight Russian models, in an explosive new book.

Jeffrey Epstein's accuser Virginia Giuffre, 37, claimed that she and seven or eight Russian girls were told to pose in 'sexual positions' while the Duke of York sat watching at Epstein's Virgin Islands hideaway in 2002.

The new allegations - denied as 'unsubstantiated and lurid' by a source close to Prince Andrew - are made in The Spider, a new book by investigative journalist Barry Levine, set to be released tomorrow and seen in advance by The Sun.

The government of Japan is now setting the time-table for release of more than 1 million tons of water from containment from the wrecked Fukushima nuclear power plant. Regulatory agencies are claiming the soon-to-be released waste-water will be filtered of its radioactive cesium and strontium. Similar cynical claims have been issued during previous sea-dumps, which is why fishermen in northeast Japan are protesting for being the final blow to recovery hopes for offshore fish stocks.

University told student groups not to gather, but allowed Black Lives Matter protest

A free-speech group has repeatedly warned the University of South Florida about the unfairness and unconstitutionality of its coronavirus guidelines.

The Southeastern Legal Foundation has now sent three letters to the public university in Florida, warning it about problems with both its approaches to student gatherings and coronavirus tracking and reporting.

The university does allow sports teams to practice, but told student organizations they could not meet.

Its concerns about vagueness of the policies that were first raised in its August 26 first letter came true when the university allowed the campus chapter of Students for a Democratic Society to host an off-campus protest on August 28 against racism and in support of Jacob Blake, who was shot by a Kenosha, Wisconsin police officer on August 23. Blake’s shooting has become a focus of Black Lives Matter activism.

Biden’s Former Ukraine Adviser Now Works For Facebook, Which Censors Hunter Story

Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s former “special policy adviser for Europe and Eurasia” is now working on public policy at Facebook. She also has a title at the Atlantic Council, the George Soros-funded globalist think tank where Reddit director of policy Jessica Ashooh worked before Ashooh moved to Reddit and oversaw the purging of pro-Trump communities.

Anna Makanju’s role as a public policy and legal expert for Facebook raises serious concerns considering the fact that Facebook publicly decided to reduce the distribution of the New York Post‘s story detailing Hunter Biden’s global financial corruption in concert with his father. Makanju is not an impartial observer, as she once vouched for Joe Biden in the Burisma scandal in a pro-Biden Washington Post puff piece.

Antifa violently attacks conservatives during protest against Big Tech censorship

A rally against online censorship that took place in San Francisco over the weekend quickly went south the moment that Antifa counterprotesters showed up and started violently assaulting people.

Far-left agitators donned with anti-fascist flags and other regalia reportedly bashed in the tooth of Philip Anderson, one of the rally’s organizers, as well as toppled a man wearing a pro-Trump t-shirt who had to be taken to the hospital for his injuries – all of this to supposedly make a statement against fascism.

An Associated Press (AP) photographer also early on witnessed a San Francisco police officer sustain injuries in United Nations Plaza upon attempting to stop Antifa from committing violence against the pro-free speech crowd. This officer was quickly rushed to the hospital for treatment.

The Crazed Will Burn It All Down After A Trump Re-election: Liberals Threatening Violence If Trump Is Reelected - It Is Prudent To Take The Threats Seriously And Prepare Accordingly

While ANP has documented the violence of the group Antifa, as well as violent members of BLM, with Stefan Stanford recently detailing the real dangers of the groups and the damage they are already causing here in America, we are noting that liberals not part of those groups (while still supportive of them) are also becoming more out of control.

With some apparently suffering some type of collective meltdown, and we take a look at what these people will do should Trump be reelected.

The people I am talking about here are liberals across social media, and offline at home, not activists, they don't join protests (yet!). Generally they have been mouthing off at Republicans online, harassing and attacking Trump supporters, basically talking big.

I refer to them as liberals that talk big but rarely act, but over the past few weeks, they have seemingly become more unhinged, the level of which increasing each day as we approach the November 3, 2020 presidential election.
