President Trump is signing an executive order Wednesday aimed at social media companies, a White House official said. Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters that the president is signing the order “pertaining to social media,” but she could not provide details. The president has criticized Twitter this week for posting, for the first time, fact-checking items to his tweets about mail-in voting. Trump lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani said Wednesday that Twitter engaged in “predatory practice” when it marked Mr. Trump’s tweets with fact-checking labels. “There’s no question that Twitter, YouTube, Facebook engage in their own censorship,” Mr. Giuliani said

The media wants you to believe that he’s making this all about him. It’s about all of us. And high time.

#2, don't forget ALPHABET, and fakebook, too. If they want to claim platform protections, they'd better toe the line and act like a platform, instead of a publisher.

I'm just a Joe sixpack kind a guy and have a non-controversial Facebook page. Suddenly they locked me out. No reason given. No way to find out why. Just censored by some faceless algorithm.

Corn farmers are throwing another government-backed Hail Mary this year, planting more of the crop than in 2019 even though prices are near the bottom of a six-year slump. “They call it plant and pray,” said Al Kluis, a commodities broker in Wayzata. “What you want is a disaster in some other part of the Corn Belt or some other country.”(Snip) Demand can’t keep up with supply. Corn futures hovered around $3.15 per bushel last week, nearly a dollar less than a year ago. Farmers came into the spring with a large inventory of corn in storage, and demand for the commodity

Cardi B says there was “no choice” but arson, looting, and violence by Minnesotans who are upset over the death of George Floyd. The rapper behind “Invasion of Privacy” made the comments as arsonists burned an AutoZone, ransacked a Target and liquor store, and resorted to violence over Monday’s viral footage of Mr. Floyd, a 46-year-old black man, with a white police officer kneeling on his neck. “They looting in Minnesota and as much as I don’t like this type of violence it is what it is,” the rapper told nearly 12 million Twitter followers. “Too much peaceful marches,

Unrest spilled into St. Paul's Midway midday Thursday as looters rushed into stores and pelted police cars with rocks, bricks and liquor bottles as the violent consequence of George Floyd's death this week to the west in Minneapolis. Officers first responded to the Target on University Avenue around 11:30 a.m. and found between 50 and 60 people grabbing merchandise off the shelves without paying, said St. Paul police spokesman Steve Linders. Many dropped the goods and ran when authorities arrived. A fight broke out in the parking lot between a pedestrian and a driver, who reportedly tried to run down the person with their car.

Arizona sued Google this week, alleging the big tech company engaged in deceptive and unfair business practices to obtain users’ location data for advertising purposes in order to gain a profit. The 50-page complaint alleges Google tracks the location of its users even if the consumer had disabled the tracker. After a roughly two-year probe, Arizona says Google also makes it confusing and increasingly difficult for a consumer to opt-out of the tracking and information collection. “While Google users are led to believe they can opt-out of location tracking, the company exploits other avenues to invade personal privacy,”

A Virginia man who fled the country in 2012 and was suspected of trying to recruit men to join the terrorist group al-Shabaab was indicted in a federal court on a charge of conspiring to provide material support to the terrorist group based in Somalia, prosecutors said. Liban Haji Mohamed of Alexandria, Virginia, is a Somali-born naturalised American citizen who drove a cab in northern Virginia. He first came to the FBI's attention in 2010 with the arrest of Zachary Adam Chesser, at the time a 20-year-old Virginian who became enthralled with extremist Islamist views as a young man

Activist Shaun King has botched his attempt to recreate abolitionist Frederick Douglass’ newspaper, The North Star, as an online venture—sparking renewed scrutiny over his financial dealings, according to a report Tuesday. King’s new media outlet—which was lauded by such celebs as Susan Sarandon and Megan Mullally—has pulled in between $60,000 and $625,000 a month, depending on various figures he’s provided, the Daily Beast said. Yet it has failed to deliver on nearly every one of his promises, which included building “multiple studios’’ and “hiring nearly 50 world class journalists,” the site said.

East Harlem, Manhattan—A 64-year old Harlem woman who's been in a medically-induced coma since she was attacked and sexually assaulted is expected to die, prosecutors said. Frankie Harris, 38, was arraigned Tuesday on charges of rape, strangulation and attempted murder, but the Manhattan District Attorney's Office expects murder charges will need to be filed against the Brooklyn man. On the night of May 18, Harris allegedly put the victim in a chokehold for several minutes before repeatedly sexually assaulting the woman, officials aid. She was left unconscious on the pavement.

The pandemic has heightened the need for interpreters as hospitals cope with a disproportionate number of COVID-19 patients who speak languages other than English. As of mid-May, 22% of the Minnesota Department of Health’s interviews with people who had laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 cases required an interpreter—more than five times the proportion of the state’s population lacking fluency in English. At least part of the trend is driven by outbreaks at meatpacking plants that employ many immigrant workers, such as the JBS pork processing plant in Worthington, where hundreds of employees contracted the virus.(Snip) In-house interpreters work in 16 languages,

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."

The COVID-19 Death Count?

As the “official” tally of COVID-19 deaths tops 100,000 in the U.S., we keep hearing how that number is likely a low-ball estimate. But there’s far more evidence that the death count has been knowingly exaggerated – possibly by a very wide margin. A recent Seattle Times article pretty much lays out the charade going on. The headline reads: “Washington state’s actual coronavirus death toll may be higher than current tallies, health officials say.” But the story itself leads one to the exact opposite conclusion. Well down in the article, the reporter reveals that: “The rapid onslaught of this coronavirus forced

There’s a great deal to be upset about regarding the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police officers under color of authority, but it’s quite another thing for protesters to turn into rioters and steal stuff under cover of righteous indignation. That’s what happened in Minneapolis Wednesday night after Police Chief Medaria Arradondo announced that four police officers involved in the stop on Sunday night were fired. Floyd died in custody Sunday night after getting stopped for forgery. Floyd was held down at his neck by an officer using his knee.

Jerry Nadler, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and 11 other New York members of the House of Representatives have sent a letter to NY Gov.

Six days later, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the city was “buckling down,” after having experienced “some recidivism” among released criminals. Unbelievably, de Blasio called the crimes committed by previously-convicted criminals “unconscionable”:

There’s a good chance the coronavirus will never go away. Even after a vaccine is discovered and deployed, the coronavirus will likely remain for decades to come, circulating among the world’s population. Experts call such diseases endemic — stubbornly resisting efforts to stamp them out. Think measles, HIV, chickenpox. It is a daunting proposition — a coronavirus-tinged world without a foreseeable end. But experts in epidemiology, disaster planning and vaccine development say embracing that reality is crucial to the next phase of America’s pandemic response. The long-term nature of covid-19, they say, should serve as a call to arms for
