Tuesday News Executive Summary

Jordan Candler  Above the Fold

Dr. Anthony Fauci will testify before the Senate Health Committee today. Fauci revealed to The New York Times: “The major message that I wish to convey … is the danger of trying to open the country prematurely. … This will not only result in needless suffering and death, but would actually set us back on our quest to return to normal.” Of course  economic restoration will result in some undesirable effects, as our own Mark Alexander has explained. But with all due respect, Fauci’s position is safe, easy, and ultimately shortsighted. Which is exactly the position that ivory tower bureaucrats love to take.

Yesterday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck scumbaq-Schumer bloviated: “Until now, we’ve mostly heard from the members of the coronavirus task force through the distorted lens of the White House press conference where the president often prevents them from answering fully, interrupts their response, or even contradicts their fact-based evidence. This will be one of the first opportunities for Dr. Fauci to tell the American people the unvarnished truth without the president lurking over his shoulder. Dr. Fauci, let it rip.” In other words, scumbag-Schumer wants Fauci to double down on undermining the president.

scumbag/liar-nObama lapdog scumbag/commie-Brennan spews pure hate against Trump after Flynn case is dropped

By M. Dowling{independentsentinel.com  } ~ An enraged former CIA Director, scumbag/commie-John Brennan, who is deeply tied to Spygate, slammed President Trump on Saturday… after the DOJ dropped its case against Flynn. The Flynn case was dropped because there was no crime. During an interview on Fox & Friends Friday morning, co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Trump, “Why did it take a judge to release these Flynn documents and where was the FBI Director Chris Wray? Why did he not put this out?” President Trump said, “Well, a lot of things are going to be told over the next couple of weeks, and let’s see what happens. He was appointed by Rod Rosenstein and a lot of things are coming out. You’ll see a lot of things coming out. It’s disappointing.” scumbag/commie-Brennan is lashing out and it’s probably because he knows he is in the crosshairs. “It is unsurprising President Trump enjoys wallowing in his fetid self-indulgence, but I find it surreal that so many other government officials encourage his ignorance, incompetence, & destructive behavior,” said scumbag/commie-Brennan. “BTW, history will be written by the righteous, not by his lickspittle.” he added.This is pure hatred coming from a former CIA director but he is probably still counting on the media and far-left historians to back him up. We don’t know exactly what his role was yet, but we do know he was the CIA chief and very close to all the action. There are specific incidences in which he appeared to actively promote and push out the fake dossier, scumbag/liar-Hillary Clinton’s opp research. If anyone writes lickspittle, it’s scumbag/liar-nObama’s spaniel scumbag/commie-John Brennan, a former communist or maybe not former.   https://www.independentsentinel.com/obama-lapdog-brennan-spews-pure-hate-against-trump-after-flynn-case-is-dropped/  

Pence denies he’s ‘in quarantine’ after spokeswoman tests positive for coronavirus

by Carlin Becker{washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Vice President Mike Pence has been keeping his distance but is not quarantining after his spokeswoman tested positive for the novel coronavirus… Three people familiar with the situation told  Bloomberg on Sunday that the vice president has stayed away from the White House following his spokeswoman Katie Miller’s positive COVID-19 test on Friday. He did not attend a meeting with the president or military officials on Saturday and has been staying at his home at the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C., but there is “no restriction” on his activities. An administration official told the  Associated Press that the vice president is “voluntarily limiting his exposure,” and another official told NBC News he was putting “a little distance” between himself and others over the weekend. He has repeatedly tested negative for COVID-19, is following the advice of medical professionals, and plans to return to work on Monday after laying “a little low.” “Vice President Pence will continue to follow the advice of the White House Medical Unit and is not in quarantine,” Pence spokesman Devin O’Malley responded to the reports. “Additionally, Vice President Pence has tested negative every single day and plans to be at the White House tomorrow.” The New York Times reported hours earlier that the administration had no plans to separate Pence and President Trump amid an outbreak among staff, which has also infected one of the president’s valets and at least 11 Secret Service members. After exposure to staffers infected with the virus, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony Fauci, Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield are all self-quarantining.   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/pence-denies-hes-in-quarantine-after-spokeswoman-tests-positive-for-coronavirus   

Watch Gowdy identify reporters who ‘peddled’ misleading scumbag/liar-Schiff leaks

By Chuck Ross  {wnd.com } ~Former Rep. Trey Gowdy accused reporters from CNN, Politico and The New York Times on Sunday of helping House Intelligence Committee Chairman scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff “peddle”… the now-debunked conspiracy theory of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government. Gowdy was asked in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures” to identify reporters he believed took leaks from scumbag/liar-Schiff for stories related to the Intelligence panel’s Russia investigation. “Well, I hope you have a three hour show,” Gowdy quipped. “Let’s just start with Politico,” Gowdy, a former member of the House Intelligence Committee, said in an interview on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “Kyle Cheney is just an acolyte for scumbag/liar-Adam Schiff,” said Gowdy, referring to a senior congressional reporter at the website. “Manu Raju from CNN,” the Republican continued, referring to the network’s congressional reporter. “Nothing scumbag/liar-Schiff wanted out, made public — no leak was too low for Manu Raju and CNN.” “Fill in the blank at The New York Times,” he added. Gowdy, who is now a Fox News contributor, has blasted scumbag/liar-Schiff in the past for leaking information to reporters…  https://www.wnd.com/2020/05/names-finally-named-watch-gowdy-identify-reporters-peddled-misleading-schiff-leaks/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=wnd-breaking&utm_campaign=breaking&utm_content=breaking  VIDEO:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZZCDAqqtAQ&feature=emb_title  

Sidney Powell Discusses Details Behind DOJ Dropping Flynn Case

by sundance{theconservativetreehouse.com } ~ Michael Flynn’s defense counsel Sidney Powell appears on Fox New with Maria Bartiromo to discuss events after the DOJ has decided to withdraw the prosecution and drop the case… In the background of the document releases Mrs. Powell outlines the sequence of events in early January where DNI scumbag-James Clapper briefs President scumbag/liar-nObama on the Flynn call with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak and that’s the origin of President scumbag/liar-nObama’s discussion on January 5th with Deputy AG liar-Sally Yates and FBI Director scumbag-Comey. Two years ago CTH first outlined how the classified section in the mysterious liar-Susan Rice memo-to-file was likely because Lt. Gen.

The Mystery of the Death of Natalie Wood

By Michael Curtis{americanthinker.com } ~ An old mystery has resurfaced by the presentation on May 4, 2020 of the life and death of the actress Natalie Wood in a documentary produced by her daughter…  Some of the facts of Wood’s end are known and undisputed. On the night of her death, November 28–29, 1981, her body was found floating in the shallow surf, dressed in flannel nightgown, jacket, and wool socks, with superficial bruises on her body. She was found about a mile away from where she had spent the evening in her yacht, The Splendor, off Catalina Island outside Los Angeles, together with three others. One was her husband, actor Robert Wagner, then 51 years old, to whom she was married twice, 1957–62 and 1972–81. The others were actor Christopher Walken, a younger man born in 1943, with whom she was co-starring in a film, Brainstorm, completed after her death with a stand-in playing her role, and the young captain of the yacht, a man named Dennis Davern. The ongoing mystery is whether her death was an accident or a murder. Wood had a short but vibrant life, successful professionally but personally disordered, with allegations of affairs including with Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. If that life was not as messy as that of Judy Garland, who died at roughly the same age in her 40s, it included apparent suicide attempts, heavy drinking, and her eventual relegation to B movies. Besides her glamorous lifestyle, Wood was also admired off-screen, regarded as being ahead of her time, fighting for equal pay for women and rights for the LGBT community. She supported and helped finance the play The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley, the groundbreaking portrayal of gay life, and helped Robert Redford start his film career. Wood was born in 1938 to Russian immigrant parents. She began acting when she was five and in a short time became a studio child film star. She filmed with Orson Welles at age 8 and then, with her aura of sexuality and magnetic personality, rapidly made a transition to mature roles and became an adult star. She was to be for a time the second highest paid actress, after Elizabeth Taylor. Among her best known films are Miracle on 34th Street at age eight; Rebel without a Cause with James Dean, directed by Nicholas Ray, with whom she had a sexual relationship at age 16; Splendor in the Grass with Warren Beatty, another lover; West Side Story; Love with a Proper Stranger with Steve McQueen; and Gypsy with Rosalind Russell, in which, unlike the case in WSS, she did her own singing. She was nominated several times for an Oscar but never won. She was not offended when Harvard’s Lampoon in 1966 called her the worst actress of the year. From the beginning, different versions of Wood’s death have emerged. The L.A. County medical examiner concluded she had died of a incident accident while slightly intoxicated. Her body had a blood alcohol content of 0.14% and contained medication.She had bruises on her body and arms and an abrasion on her left cheek. Later it was said she had sustained the bruising before she entered the water…  https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/05/the_mystery_of_the_death_of_natalie_wood.html   . 

Head of FDA quarantines after contact with Pence aide who tested positive for coronavirus

by Zachary Halaschak{washingtonexaminer.com } ~ Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Stephen Hahn will spend the next two weeks in a self-imposed quarantine after coming into contact with Katie Miller… a spokeswoman for Vice President Mike Pence who tested positive for COVID-19. Hahn has not shown any symptoms of the illness and initially tested negative for the virus but had been in contact with Miller after a contact-tracing analysis was done at the White House, according to Politico. “Per CDC guidelines, he is now in self-quarantine for the next two weeks,” FDA spokeswoman Stephanie Caccomo said. “He immediately took a diagnostic test and tested negative for the virus.” A valet for President Trump tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday. The next day, it was revealed that Miller also tested positive. She is married to Trump staffer Stephen Miller, who apparently spends a lot of time around the president, although the White House said Friday he hasn’t been near Trump or Pence recently. It was also reported that 11 employees of the Secret Service have active cases of COVID-19. Hahn will continue his work assisting the administration with the country’s coronavirus response. There have been almost 1.3 million people in the United States infected with the virus and more than 77,000 deaths, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.   https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/head-of-fda-quarantines-after-contact-with-pence-aide-who-tested-positive-for-coronavirus   

.Signs of Hope

 Gary Bauer 

Two studies regarding COVID-19 mutations have made headlines in recent days. One got significantly more coverage because the press release noted the researchers’ “urgent concern” that the mutating virus could be more contagious, potentially complicating the search for treatments.

This news was used to justify calls for more “social isolation” and to attack the president and Republican governors who supported efforts to reopen our economy. But the spin on this mutation report was terribly inaccurate.Dr. Scott Gottlieb, a former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, said the headlines were “very misleading,” adding that the study “doesn’t really prove anything.”He said that similar research regarding Ebola mutations did not result in that virus becoming more contagious. Moreover, when viruses become more contagious that often means they are weakening and dying off. That’s good news, not bad news.Meanwhile, researchers at Arizona State University (ASU) reported results of a study that also found a significant mutation in the coronavirus. Their study found that one particular sample of the virus was “missing a significant chunk of its genome,” indicating that it was becoming weaker.The deletion that the ASU researchers discovered in the COVID-19 sample was exactly what happened in the SARS virus when it essentially disappeared in 2003.Cuomo’s CrisisA few weeks ago, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was getting such rave reviews for his daily coronavirus briefings that many people speculated Democrats might nominate him if loose lips liar-Joe Biden faltered. Well, that was then.Tuesday, New York officials adjusted the death toll in the state’s nursing homes and added more than 1,700 deaths. That means roughly 25% of all COVID deaths in New York have occurred in the state’s nursing homes.If you are tempted to cut the governor a break given that the elderly are at the greatest risk, think again. On March 25, the state Health Department issued an order declaring that no resident could be denied “readmission or admission solely based on a confirmed or suspected diagnosis of COVID-19.”In other words, New York hospitals that had treated elderly patients with coronavirus sent those patients to the state’s nursing homes, where they predictably spread the virus to other residents. Four weeks later, Cuomo was still defending that order.Ironically, during this same period of time, nursing home residents who were dying of the virus were banned from seeing their relatives because they might bring the virus in from the outside. So family members were banned, while infected people were brought in.Cuomo’s nursing home crisis borders on criminal and should be the new textbook definition of “stupid public policy.”Virulent HypocrisyIt is infuriating to see progressive politicians, including Cuomo, arguing against opening up our economy. We are learning more about the negative health effects associated with “social isolation” and the ongoing shutdown, and it’s not good.But it is even more infuriating to hear left-wing politicians argue that such risks can’t be taken when “every life is priceless.” It seems that the progressive politicians most vehemently making that case are the same politicians who support abortion on demand!No reporter ever points out this blatant hypocrisy. It must be wonderful to be a liberal, knowing you will get a free pass from the press no matter how many times you contradict yourself.Freedom Is EssentialAs regular readers of this report know, I am not a libertarian. But what is happening to Shelley Luther, a small-business owner in Texas, really brings out my libertarian impulses.Luther owns a salon, which was declared a nonessential business and shut down as a result of the pandemic. She could have gone on unemployment, food stamps, and welfare. Like so many Americans who cherish freedom and the dignity of work, she opened up her salon last week and went back to work.Luther didn’t force anyone to come in, but come in they did. But for the crime of engaging in commerce, she is now threatened with devastating fines and jail time.Judge Eric Moye told Luther she could be spared jail if she groveled before the court by apologizing to “the elected officials who you disrespected” and confessed to being “selfish.” Luther refused. She told the judge:I have much respect for this court and laws… I’ve never been in this position before, and it’s not someplace that I want to be.But, I have to disagree with you, sir, when you say that I’m selfish because feeding my kids is not  selfish. I have hair stylists that are going hungry because they’d rather feed their kids.So, sir, if you think the law is more important than kids getting fed, then please go ahead with your decision, but I am not going to shut the salon.So while violent criminals are being released from prison, this hard-working small businesswoman is going to jail. This is beyond disgusting and yet another example of government run amok.Thankfully, Gov. Greg Abbott and Attorney General Ken Paxton are calling for Luther to be released.National Day of PrayerToday is the National Day of Prayer. This year’s theme is “Pray God’s Glory Across the Earth,” and the verse is Habakkuk 2:14, “For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.”The coronavirus pandemic has shut down much of our economic life, but it cannot shut down our prayer life! Click here to find a list of events in your area, many of which will be virtual.The national observance, featuring Rick Warren, Will Graham, Bishop Harry Jackson, and many others, will take place tonight at 8:00 PM ET. Click here to watch it live online.Fighting Anti-SemitismCoronavirus isn’t the only virulent disease we’re facing right now. Sadly, anti-Semitism continues to spread throughout the world.I was interviewed by CBN News Tuesday about this disturbing trend. You can watch the interview below. The segment with my comments begins at the 15:05 mark.  ~The Patriot Post
