Coronavirus cases in New Jersey, which just a week ago had plunged to their lowest levels since the pandemic began, are rising again, fueled in part by outbreaks among young adults along the Jersey Shore. In the past seven days, New Jersey has recorded an average of 416 cases per day, an increase of 28 percent from the average two weeks earlier, according to a database maintained by The New York Times. The increase has worried elected leaders and public health officials who say that young people who are enjoying summer parties are not taking enough precautions. A party that

And how many of these people are actually sick? Science says the risk of grave illness to younger people is astoundingly low.

Funny how "party-goers" get the virus but "protesters" don't.

And I bet they are drinking too much, driving too fast and not wearing condoms. We're going to have to figure this all out and young people are not going to be put under house arrest.

We need a TV reality show. Virus Island. Every week somebody gets sick and has to quarantine until there's only one cute blonde left. She wins a lifetime supply of hydroxychloroquine.

Cases? What does the NYT mean? Hospitalizations? Asymptomatic exposures? Mild flu like symptoms? Deaths? “Cases” have traditionally meant hospitalizations... not these days apparently. It is purposive alarmist obfuscation.

Big news here in Michigan two plus weeks ago. After a house party in a south eastern town attended by young adults, 40 people tested positive for Covid, all attendees. Non-news here 16-18 days later. No illnesses, no hospitalizations, no deaths. The sizzle is the rise in cases. The facts are, among the young, it almost never means anything.

ORLANDO, Fla. — Isaias downgraded to tropical storm strength Saturday afternoon but it’s wind strength is expected to rise again into a hurricane as it approaches southeast Florida, according to the National Hurricane Center’s 5 p.m. ET update. New NHC models are showing a slight westerly wobble in Isaias’ path with projections indicating it making landfall along the east-central Florida coast sometime Sunday. The storm’s tropical force winds are expected to reach the southeast coast of Florida Saturday night. Isaias’ center was 115 miles away from Fort Lauderdale at the time of the 5 p.m. update.

Berlin - A Berlin protest against coronavirus restrictions drew thousands, from the hard left and right to conspiracy theorists on Saturday. Police put turnout at 15,000 -- well below the 500,000 organisers had announced as they urged a "day of freedom" from months of virus curbs. (Snip) A handful of people held a counter demonstration. Dubbing themselves "grandmothers against the extreme right", they shouted insults against "Nazi" protesters. The "Day of Freedom" slogan for the protest echoes the title of a 1935 documentary by Nazi-era film producer Leni Riefenstahl on a party conference by Hitler's National Socialist German Workers' Party.

Defenders of California Sen. Kamala Harris are rallying to her support over concerns that she is being viewed skeptically by the advisors vetting possible running mates for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. (Snip) Harris’ allies mobilized this week after Politico reported that the co-chair of Biden’s vetting committee, former Sen. Christopher J. Dodd of Connecticut, was still concerned about Harris’ tough debate performance against Biden in June 2019 and that she hasn’t expressed regret.

WASHINGTON – Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president, previously said the announcement of his running mate would be in the first week of August. But that announcement has been pushed back. A source familiar with the process said that an announcement isn't likely next week. According to the New York Times and CNN, the announcement will come the week before the Democratic National Convention, which is scheduled for Aug. 17 to 20. Three candidates, Karen Bass of California, Sen. Kamala Harris of California and former national security advisor Susan Rice, have emerged as the top contenders for Biden's running

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker says he’s pushed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden to pick Sen. Tammy Duckworth as his running mate, arguing that she would highlight President Trump’s successful attempts to avoid being drafted during the Vietnam War. Trump “ran away from service at a time when the country needed him,” Pritzker, a Democrat, said during a wide-ranging interview with Yahoo News’ “Skullduggery” podcast. Biden has said he will announce his selection next week, and Duckworth, an Illinois Democrat, is among a handful of women he is said to be most seriously considering for the job. Duckworth is a

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure on a bile duct stent she received last year, the Supreme Court said Wednesday. Ginsburg, who was admitted at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, is expected to be released from the hospital by the end of the week. Per the court, Ginsburg's doctors say stent revisions are common, and done to minimize the risk of infection in the future. Ginsburg — who, at 87, is the oldest member on the court — disclosed earlier this month that she is undergoing chemotherapy for a reoccurrence of pancreatic cancer.

One of the key figures in the impeachment of Donald Trump has described being forced into retirement by 'a campaign of bullying, intimidation and retaliation', and likened the current government of the United States to the dictatorship of the Soviet Union. Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman, 45, wrote a scathing op ed in The Washington Post on Saturday - the first day of his retirement. 'At no point in my career or life have I felt our nation's values under greater threat and in more peril than at this moment,' said the Ukrainian-born lieutenant colonel.

How many tens of thousands of Americans must die because of Dr. Fauci’s mistakes? It is becoming more and more apparent with each new day and as more information is accumulated that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, the CDC and the FDA failed in their response to the China Coronavirus. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a completely fraudulent Imperial College study to lockdown and destroy the greatest economy in US history. Dr. Anthony Fauci has made at least 15 critical mistakes and contradictions since the start of the pandemic in March. Perhaps Dr. Fauci’s most deadly mistake is his response to hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) treatments for the disease.

A “cold and ruthless” President Obama abandoned his Kenyan family in their greatest hours of need, according to a new tell-all by estranged half brother Malik Obama. “He got rich and became a snob,” Malik, 62, told The Post via Skype from his home in the Kenyan village of Nyang’oma Kogelo. “What I saw was he was the kind of person that wants people to worship him. He needs to be worshiped and I don’t do that. I am his older brother so I don’t do that.” The book, “Big Bad Brother From Kenya,” a self-published memoir which Malik Obama spent 22 years writing, hit Amazon with little fanfare on July 11.

“Every day’s a good day when you paint.” —Bob Ross (1942–1995) Staring at the empty canvas on the easel in front of me, I couldn’t understand how this—nothing—might somehow transform into even a rough approximation of the Bob Ross painting we were using as a model. That painting was classic Bob Ross: a snowy landscape bursting with color, a world of glimmering trees and vibrant shrubs around a slick, icy pond. Gazing at it evoked that feeling you get sitting by a fire on a crisp, cold night. No way I could make anything like that. I was in a room on the side of a big-box craft store

In a role reversal from their eight years together in the White House, Barack Obama has become Joe Biden’s wingman and, in his understated way, his hatchet man.The former president’s Thursday eulogy for the late Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat who was active in the civil rights movement, was a case in point. Obama criticized President Trump and reminded Democrats who they would be letting down if they didn’t elect Biden and a Democratic Senate, urging them to jettison the filibuster — a key institutional obstacle to liberal ambitions — as a “relic of Jim Crow.”

The radical left does that and much more every night in streets across America. Apparently, it’s only legal to paint “Black Lives Matter” on the streets but not “Black Preborn Lives Matter” in our nation’s capital.
