Iran has been accused of failing to clamp down on coronavirus contamination after alarming videos of worshippers licking a shrine emerged online. Clips shared on social media show people licking the doors and burial mound inside the Fatima Masumeh shrine in Qom, defying token advice by the health ministry. Worshippers in the videos brazenly state they 'don't care what happens', even if they catch or spread the infection which has killed at least 54 in the country. Iran's hardline clerical establishment has refused to shut down Qom despite the holy city suffering the brunt of the outbreak and pilgrims spreading the virus across the Middle East.

Now that the Mullah's head butt kisser has died from the virus, it would be unfortunate if the virus spread through the palace.

As a precaution, we should quarantine Mr. Logan Act himself, Senator Chris Murphy, due to his potential exposure with their senior leadership to COVID-19. Wouldn’t it be...ironic if a microscopic organism actually led to the downfall of this evil regime? Of all things.

The virus is not likely to kill many people who aren't elderly or infirm but if it spreads enough it will disable the limited number of health care workers who are able to safely treat the infected. At that point people who have major medical needs like heart disease or cancer will suffer needlessly and risk death as an indirect effect of this idiocy. What the devout in Iran don't seem to grasp is that the source of all suffering is ignorance.

More than 2 millenia ago, the Peesian Empire was under assault by the less civilized, but technologically advanced Scythians. They were driven from their cities. The Scythians were semi-nomads and horsemen. They invented the stirrup, they invented iron-working, and discovered how to make steel. Counted among their various tribes were the storied Amazons, mentioned in the Trojan War. They knew nothing of sanitation, and soon plague struck them. Believing the gods were punishing them, they dispersed, going east and west, bringing their discoveries with them. That plague saved the Persians, for a time. Only fitting, a plague due to their arrogance and degeneracy might take them, now.

Jeffrey Epstein was in a relationship with a woman from Belarus when he died and she was the last person he phoned before he hanged himself. The pedophile rang Karyna Shuliak on August 10 last year from the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York as he awaited trial on sex trafficking charges. The next day, the 66-year-old financier was found dead in his cell. Shuliak's identity was revealed by a report in the New York Daily News which said they had been together for four or five years.(Snip) Public records indicate that Shuliak was registered as living at Epstein's Palm Beach mansion between 2015 and 2018.

Speaking at a pro-Israel 2020 policy conference Monday, former New York City mayor and current Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg declared one of his greatest moments was insisting it was just fine to build a mosque near Ground Zero after Sept. 11. His comments marked the second time in less than a month Mr. Bloomberg has sought to cloak his presidential bid in the memory of the 9/11 attacks, which occurred before he was elected. “I was never prouder than when I stood in the shadow of the Statue of Liberty and argued that Muslim New Yorkers had every right to build a mosque anywhere

An illegal immigrant was released under Chicago’s “sanctuary city” policy—only to sexually assault a 3-year-old girl and leave her sobbing for her father in a McDonald’s bathroom, according to authorities. Mexican national Christopher Puente, 34, was only in Chicago because cops refused to hold him for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials after he was arrested last year, ICE charged in a statement. He was then arrested last month for allegedly assaulting the 3-year-old after luring her to his bathroom stall while her dad helped her brother in the restaurant restroom, the Chicago Sun-Times has reported.

Former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg was snubbed Sunday by numerous congregants at a historically black church in Selma, Alabama. According to a report in the New York Daily News, several members of Brown Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church stood up and turned their back on Mr. Bloomberg as he was was speaking. The Daily News said numerous images of the protests were posted to social media.

Tulane University's "Victory Bell" has been removed from its pedestal on the school's Uptown campus after officials learned it was originally used as a plantation bell. In a letter emailed to the Tulane community, President Mike Fitts and Board Chairman Doug Hertz said they were informed last week that the bell was originally used to direct the movements of enslaved people on a plantation. "It is terribly disheartening to learn that it is, in fact, a vestige of a horrific part of our nation's past," the letter said.

On Saturday morning, Henry Allen sat at a cafeteria table at Selma High School with a breakfast of eggs, sausage and biscuit. The room was filled with friends telling stories and people singing protest songs. When he attended the school, he wouldn’t have been allowed in. In the 1960s, when Selma was becoming a symbol of the fight over voting rights, its school system was segregated. “We were under Jim Crow law but we didn’t know it at the time,” said Allen, who marched in protest half a century ago. The school system is integrated now but the high school is completely black.

Former Bill Clinton strategist Paul Begala thinks President Trump is going to swap running mates in 2020. The CNN political analyst made the prediction during a Monday panel event at the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual conference. Begala, who was a chief strategist during Clinton’s 1992 campaign, said he thinks Pence will be replaced as vice president on Trump's ticket with Nikki Haley, his former U.N. ambassador. “This is not a prediction. It’s a certainty,” Begala said. “On Thursday, July 16 — that’s the date the Democrat gives her or his acceptance address — on that day, to interrupt that narrative, Donald Trump will call a press conference at Mar-a-Lago."

That explains Donald Trump. Now, people seem to have changed. This cycle, people want stability.”

Judge Royce Lamberth issued the order in response to litigation by the group that has dragged on for more than five years and seeks the public release of information from Clinton's tenure at the State Department. 'Any further discovery should focus on whether she used a private server to evade FOIA and, as a corollary to that, what she understood about State's records management obligations,' the judge wrote about the federal open records law.
