PARIS - Professor Philippe Juvin, a leading member of Paris’ Georges-Pompidou hospital, told RTL radio on Wednesday that France had to accept a new, national lockdown to tackle a resurgence of the COVID-19 virus. “We must take it up,” said Juvin. French President Emmanuel Macron will give a televised address on Wednesday evening. His government has been exploring a new, national lockdown from midnight on Thursday, BFM TV reported, albeit a slightly more flexible one than the two-month shutdown that began in mid-March. Schools could remain open even as restrictions on people’s movements become more severe, BFM TV added.

France surrenders yet again.

Lockdowns only diminish the then current spreading. Spreading begins again when the lockdowns are lifted unless the population is vaccinated or has acquired herd immunity.

Lockdowns don’t work. It’s about the economy, stupid. France can go make their own Regeneron in warp speed. It works both as a prophylactic and a cure. The US is fine. Trump has US under his protection.

Senior officials on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign are increasingly worried about insufficient Black and Latino voter turnout in key states like Florida and Pennsylvania with only four days until the election, according to people familiar with the matter. Despite record early-vote turnout around the country, there are warning signs for Biden. In Arizona, two-thirds of Latino registered voters have not yet cast a ballot. In Florida, half of Latino and Black registered voters have not yet voted but more than half of White voters have cast ballots, according to data from Catalist, a Democratic data firm. In Pennsylvania

Days after taking office, President Donald Trump cleared the way for construction of an oil pipeline in the Midwest that had been the focus of months of opposition by climate activists, celebrities and Native Americans. Now opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline are pressuring Joe Biden to take the extraordinary step of returning the favor should he win the White House. Analysts said they couldn't recall a president shutting down an operating pipeline before, which is why its being viewed as a litmus test of how far he’d go to appease environmentalists who have supported him.

Progressives are just keeping their tongue-biting promise to help Joe Biden deliver, presenting the former vice president to their supporters, once and for all, as the last chance of demolishing Donald Trump’s stronghold on Washington.

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said in an interview on Tuesday. “Most people are putting on the good face to vote Trump out.

During a Monday night appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," Maher was asked about the moment when news of Ginsburg's death broke while he was taping his show and Jimmy Kimmel expressed his amazement at how his panel was "exactly right" at predicting how events that were going to play out.

The coronavirus struck the United States earlier this year with devastating force. In April, it killed more than 10,000 people in New York City. By early May, nearly 50,000 nursing home residents and their caregivers across the country had died. But as the virus continued its rampage over the summer and fall, infecting nearly 8.5 million Americans, survival rates, even of seriously ill patients, appeared to be improving. At one New York hospital system where 30 percent of coronavirus patients died in March, the death rate had dropped to 3 percent by the end of June. Doctors in England observed

WEST SALEM, Wis. - Supporters of President Donald Trump were very visible at the La Crosse Speedway in West Salem, and at similar Trump campaign events, Joe Biden supporters have also had a sizable presence nearby. That was not the case on Tuesday. Just outside the entrance to the Speedway there was a sparse group of people holding signs that read things like, 'He Lied = 226,000 Dead' and 'Dump Trump' as well as 'Hate Has No Home Here' and 'Black Lives Matter'. One woman said she was disappointed to see such a large crowd inside the rally. "I thought it was

Hurricane Zeta gained strength and speed overnight, with forecasters saying early Wednesday that the storm is expected to make landfall in southeast Louisiana in the afternoon as a Category 2 storm with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph. New Orleans, just inland from the forecast landfall site, is currently in the center of the hurricane's forecast cone and is expected to experience wind gusts of between 90 and 100 mph this afternoon. New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell urged city residents to batten down the hatches. "We’ve had a lot of near misses this year," Cantrell tweeted Wednesday morning. "Pretty clear

INDIANAPOLIS — As cultural awareness grows, more people are choosing to celebrate our differences. But as we get closer to Halloween, you’re reminded not to reduce culture to a costume. So often around Halloween you’ll see Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Black people turned into caricatures of their culture. While it may seem a fun or a cool way to recognize another group of people, chances are it’s coming across offensive. Candy and costumes are what helps make Halloween what it is, and the fun it brings is great, but not when it delves into cultural appropriation. “People think that

BENSALEM, Pa. — Two men, one in a Ford F-150 truck bedecked with Trump decals and the other in a Chevrolet Malibu, were stopped at a traffic light, arguing about politics. The light turned green, the truck pulled into a parking lot and the Chevy followed. The man in the truck jumped out, brandishing a trailer hitch head like a war hammer. (Snip) “It feels like I’m surrounded by Trump people,” said Kendall Messick, 25, a warehouse worker for a phone company who was sitting in the passenger seat of the Chevy Malibu, which had moved to an adjacent lot

Polling indicates Joe Biden and the Democrats will win big. However, Democrats are falling short of the edge they need in early voting to offset the Republicans’ anticipated big edge in election day voting in three of four battleground states where data is available.If pollsters adjusted to fix 2016 mistakes, the RealClearPolitics average in each state shows Biden winning 341-197 and Democrats taking control of the Senate. This grid shows a middle scenario, that state polling averages are just as far off as in 2016, that would add Wisconsin, Iowa and North Carolina to the Trump column, still leaving Trump

WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then. Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who—rather than what—is growing inside my belly. Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to?

Model, actress, and radical feminist Emily Ratajkowski announced her pregnancy in this month’s Vogue Magazine, writing an essay reflecting on the sex of her child. As is the case with many far-left causes and feminists, Ratajkowski signals her most progressive beliefs, only to find herself wrestling with the pesky reality that is biology. Like Tampax claiming men can have periods, or school districts ruling it fair for boys to compete in girls’ sports, leftist causes often come down to arguments over semantics rather than science. Ratajkowski finds herself in a similar trap, claiming to not really know her child’s sex until he is 18, and assuring readers

Everyone knows the old joke that “even paranoid people have enemies.” Perhaps that needs to be expanded to say, “even conspiracy theorists sometimes stumble across real conspiracies.” During his Wednesday night show, Tucker Carlson said a source had sent documents about more Biden shenanigans to Fox News’s New York office. Carlson’s producer forwarded the documents to Los Angeles, where Carlson was interviewing Tony Bobulinsky – but the documents vanished along the way. Carlson explained that, on Monday, his producer deposited the envelope with a major American shipping company. However, by Tuesday morning, the shipping company notified Carlson’s team that the envelope was now open and empty.
