Planned Parenthood affiliates applied for and received $80 million in loans from the Paycheck Protection Program and now the Small Business Administration wants the money back because they should have been aware they are not eligible for the funds, according to a report. The SBA is reaching out to the 37 affiliates to explain they are ineligible because they are affiliates of Planned Parenthood, which has more than 500 employees, Fox News reported Tuesday. Planned Parenthood Federation of America, the nation’s largest abortion provider, has more than 600 employees.

Beside the fact that they get way too much funding to begin with...I thought that these SB loans were to allow businesses to continue to pay employees during the shutdown. PP's "essential services" were not shut down. They were given the go-ahead to keep on killing babies while vital tests, procedures and surgeries were deemed "elective." Who know what the final death toll will be from that decision? Speaking of death...Tucker had a great segment on the man (and woman) made debacle in NY, NJ, PA and MI nursing homes and the general culture of death and "expendable" human beings in the world today. He had a professor on who he has had on before, who was so wonderful and clear in his message. Maybe we can create a silver lining this dark cloud that hangs over us in this pandemic by highlighting these atrocities and demanding that it end. The very group of younger people who are so callous about the unborn, the infirm, and the elderly, will be the ones who will be "eliminated" first in their Socialist Utopia,

Just take it out of future funding.....and add penalties for the false applications. That should eliminate funding for about 10 years. Let them survive on donations rather than expecting the US Treasury to keep them afloat.

They go to work every day so they can kill as many babies as possible. You think they're gonna tremble and start crying when some pajama boy bureaucrat sends them a dunning letter? Good luck with that, SBA.

This should be considered grand larceny and possibly some securities laws violations. Throw the people in jail and make them stand trial. And then prosecute them to the fullest. May want to shut their facilities down until it's over, too.

Blue Bee Feared to Be
Extinct Is Found in Florida

As soon as the blue calamintha bee arrived on the scene, scientists worried it might be gone for good. The indigo insect was last spotted in central Florida in 2016, five years after it was first identified. But this spring, just as Americans began to hunker down because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the rare blue bees, known scientifically as Osmia calaminthae, were rediscovered in the same region foraging on Ashe's calamint, a dainty violet flower that blooms in certain scrub habitats. Chase Kimmel of the Florida Museum of Natural History confirmed the bees’ survival in March. At first, he couldn’t believe his own eyes.
Media’s Unpunished Lies Hurt The Nation
Far Worse Than Trump’s Indefensible Tweets

Donald Trump’s tweets suggesting Joe Scarborough somehow murdered a young woman who died of natural causes nearly 20 years ago are reprehensible. This is in no way because these tweets defame Scarborough. It’s pretty hard to feel bad for a guy whose media presence enabled Trump’s political rise to the point he openly flirted with running as his vice president before making a comic heel turn against Trump. (In fact, back when Scarborough was playing footsie with Trump, left-wing blogs were trafficking in this repugnant conspiracy.) Trump’s tweets are awful because of how they have thrust the deceased girl’s memory and her family into the limelight. This letter written

The staggering American death toll from the coronavirus, now approaching 100,000, has touched every part of the country, but the losses have been especially acute along its coasts, in its major cities, across the industrial Midwest, and in New York City. The devastation, in other words, has been disproportionately felt in blue America, which helps explain why people on opposing sides of a partisan divide that has intensified in the past two decades are thinking about the virus differently. It is not just that Democrats and Republicans disagree on how to reopen businesses, schools and the country as a whole. Beyond perception, beyond ideology,

One of the nation’s most prestigious national labs has developed a new fuel substitute for the same jet fuel that powers cruise missiles. Los Alamos National Labs has come up with a replacement fuel for JP-10 that uses corn bran and other feedstocks instead of petroleum products. The result is a fuel that can be sourced directly from America’s most plentiful crop, bypassing foreign sources. The Tomahawk missile is one of the most plentiful missiles in the US military arsenal. Developed in the 1970s, Tomahawk was one of the first low-altitude, radar-evading cruise missiles to enter service, and today 145 U.S. Navy warships carry the missile daily

Crisis affects people in different ways. Among the more unsettling ones, you could point to images of armed civilians storming state capitals from Lansing to Raleigh, or perhaps that video that leaked over the weekend of a poolside bacchanal in the Ozarks. Trace these reactions to the COVID-19 epidemic out to their source, and you’ll find a legion of truthers, deniers and downplayers. Among them is defrocked virologist Judy Mikovits, the voice behind Plandemic, a controversial documentary that makes unfounded claims regarding COVID-19 as well as some patently discredited ones about vaccines.

In early April, Jason Furman, a top economist in the Obama administration and now a professor at Harvard, was speaking via Zoom to a large bipartisan group of top officials from both parties. The economy had just been shut down, unemployment was spiking and some policymakers were predicting an era worse than the Great Depression. The economic carnage seemed likely to doom President Donald Trump’s chances at reelection. Furman, tapped to give the opening presentation, looked into his screen of poorly lit boxes of frightened wonks and made a startling claim. “We are about to see the best economic data we’ve seen in the history of this country,” he said.
A Unified Field Theory for Democratic
Nominees (which Biden Doesn’t Fit)

Posted by StormCnter 5/25/2020 2:36:49 PM Post Reply
Even if Biden’s age problem wasn’t so obvious, it would still count against him for a simple reason, which I call “Hayward’s Unified Field Theory of Successful Democratic Nominees.” Since World War II Democrats generally win the White House with a younger nominee, usually in his 40s, with a clear generation-changing message about the future: think John F. Kennedy (“New Frontier!”), Bill Clinton (who openly claimed to be a “New Democrat”—”End welfare as we know it!”—deliberately breaking with the party’s stodgy pro-welfare, pro-criminal past), and Barack Obama (“hope and change!”). Even Jimmy Carter, though in his 50s when elected in 1976, fits this screen in a number of ways.

Just when you’ve started wondering what topic you should write a column about—an activity that mostly leads to hours of more wondering—a lightning bolt strikes and clarifies your duty. On this occasion the lightning bolt took the friendly form of a left-wing petition urging me to save the world, more or less, by signing a petition making certain demands on . . . well . . . the world. It’s easy to mock such things, and I shall try to do once or twice here, but the idea of petitioning parliaments, congresses, and governments is an ancient, honorable, and essentially democratic one.
The Invisible Threat to China’s Navy: Corruption 16 replies
Posted by StormCnter 5/25/2020 2:29:21 PM Post Reply
In the past two decades, China has invested heavily in its naval modernization program with the objective of building a blue-water navy. Crucial to that goal was the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC), China’s leading military shipbuilding state-owned enterprise from 1999 to 2019. Yet the recent arrest of former CSIC Chairman Hu Wenming highlights the fact that serious corruption exists among China’s military shipbuilders, in spite of sustained graft fighting efforts. In the past few years, important individuals of CSIC have been nabbed under corruption charges.

Zach Hickson arrived in San Francisco to stay three years ago, at twenty-seven, because nowhere in America seemed more appealing at the time. The city was mild and fragrant. The streets on clear days had a liquid energy, and seemed to offer opportunities that he hadn’t had before. “It was a place where I could do what I wanted to do,” he told me recently. He began to call the city home. Hickson was brilliant. He was brought up in a military family, on the gritty south side of Houston, with an I.Q. higher than both of his parents’. He struggled to fit in, got in some fights.

A Bolivian pan flute orchestra has been stuck in quarantine on the grounds of a grand 15th century palace outside of Berlin for two months. Over 20 members of the Orquesta Experimental de Instrumentos Nativos have been stuck on the grounds and buildings of Rheinsberg Palace, a castle, complete with moat, which has housed generations of German royals, according to the BBC. The group arrived in Germany on March 10 expecting to perform at the MaerzMusik festival — the same day Germany announced its ban on large gatherings, swiftly followed by a full country lockdown.

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer confirmed her husband made “a failed attempt at humor” over the weekend after a comment he made to a docking company drew criticism from conservatives. In a now-deleted Facebook post, Tad Dowker, owner of NorthShore Dock LLC, said a man called the company a few days before Memorial Day weekend asking if he could put his boat in the water. According to Dowker’s post, when office staff said the company started working three weeks late so that was not going to happen, staff told him the caller said, “I am the husband to the governor, will this make a difference?”

This is not the first time the nation’s premier public health agency has had to reverse course on information related to the coronavirus pandemic, including the agency’s evolving guidance on whether a face mask should or should not be worn in public.(Snip) The CDC initially changed the information

A recent spate of mostly bad polls for President Trump has driven a narrative that he’s on his way out. Pundits have declared his reelection in “deep trouble,” and they have highlighted polls showing him “hemorrhaging older voters.” Even Republicans in swing states have raised alarms about how vulnerable Trump is to defeat. But in 2020, as the coronavirus pandemic rips through the world, the uncertainty is so great that it’s sillier than ever to read so much into polls this far out from the election. To be clear, we aren’t attempting to ignore the polls that clearly show Trump’s risk of defeat.

Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said there's no evidence that shows the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine is effective at treating COVID-19. "Clearly the scientific data is really quite evident now about the lack of efficacy for it," Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease doctor, said during a CNN interview. Fauci said evidence also shows the likelihood that the drug can cause severe irregular heart rhythms. "There was suspicion of that for a while, but as data comes in, it becomes more clear," Fauci said. The pronouncements mark Fauci's strongest warnings yet against the drug and puts him at odds with President Trump, who has embraced the drug as a "game changer" and a "miracle."
