Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday warned that “more ominous” strains of COVID-19 have emerged out of South Africa and Brazil. The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said they’re looking “very carefully” at the two new mutant variants in addition to another highly-contagious one that was first detected in the United Kingdom. “People need to realize there’s more than one mutant strain,” Fauci told NBC anchor Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” “There’s one from the UK that’s essentially dominated… There’s another more ominous one that’s in South Africa and Brazil.” Fauci said he doesn’t want “people to panic,”

A consultant anaesthetist who was struck off after he beat his ten-year-old son with an aluminium broom handle has got his NHS job back after he blamed his conduct on his 'cultural upbringing' in Nigeria. Dr Adekunle Okunuga, 59, caned his young son with the kitchen brush for misbehaving at school and made him perform squat thrusts and stand on one leg with his arms in the air while he kicked him. During the assault, he also caned the boy's open palms with a walking stick before finally stopping when he saw his son's blood spatter over the kitchen floor.

The punched Massachusetts nurse who went viral after her teenage daughter publicly shamed her for being at a violent pro-President Trump rally has now lost her job of 15 years—and fears she’ll never get another. Therese Duke told the Boston Herald she was innocently “looking for a place to eat” in Washington, DC, with “like-minded” Trump supporters when they were accosted by counter-protesters near the White House. The melee on Jan. 5—the night before rioters stormed the Capitol—saw her getting punched in the face, with her sister getting arrested for retaliating on the alleged attacker. “I did nothing wrong,” Duke insisted

Rep. Adam Schiff, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said Sunday that President Trump should not be given access to intelligence briefings. Mr. Schiff, California Democrat, told CBS’ “Face the Nation” that Mr. Trump cannot be trusted with the nation’s secrets now or in the future. He also accused allies around the world of withholding information from the U.S. out of fear that Mr. Trump would not safeguard it. “He certainly can’t be trusted.” Mr. Schiff said. “We have seen this president politicize intelligence, and that’s another risk to the country.” Former presidents are entitled to intelligence briefings, and there’s been

The top Justice Department official in early 2017 overseeing the FBI’s Russia probe testified he was briefed as many as six times on its status and was told there was no evidence of Trump campaign collusion, a newly released transcript shows. The testimony of Dana J. Boente is significant because during this time the FBI took major steps to expand the probe.(Snip) “There was no ‘there’ there,” said Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, South Carolina Republican, who released Mr. Boente’s June 22 closed testimony. “The investigation was pushed when it should have been stopped and the only logical explanation is that the investigators

For the second time in as many weeks, the Air Force has flown B-52 bombers over the Middle East in what are known as “presence patrols,” officials said Sunday. The bomber task force missions are meant to demonstrate the U.S. military’s “continuing commitment to regional security.” Air Force officials did not specify which countries the bombers flew over during their patrol, but official U.S. policy does recognize Iran as the primary adversary in the region. “Short-term deployments of strategic assets are an important part of our defensive posture in the region,” said Marine Corps Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command.

Union City’s mayor and other officials condemned a “White Lives Matter” banner found Saturday morning at a city intersection. City officials called the incident—which happened the weekend before the Martin Luther King, Jr., holiday and 10 days after the pro-Trump mob stormed the U.S. Capitol—racist. The banner was found “illegally placed” on the corner of Smith and Dyer streets and removed on Saturday morning, city officials said. A police report was filed, but Union City police could not be reached for comment on Saturday. “The city is disgusted by this despicable act of vandalism that has occurred on the heels of the insurrection

Bill Gates, the fourth richest person in the world and a self-described nerd who is known for his early programming skills rather than his love of the outdoors, has been quietly snatching up 242,000 acres of farmland across the U.S.—enough to make him the top private farmland owner in America. After years of reports that he was purchasing agricultural land in places like Florida and Washington, The Land Report revealed that Gates, who has a net worth of nearly $121 billion according to Forbes, has built up a massive farmland portfolio spanning 18 states. His largest holdings are in Louisiana (69,071 acres),

Retired Army General Stanley McChrystal has compared the MAGA riot to the evolution of Al-Qaeda saying in both instances people followed a 'powerful leader' who 'justified their violence', as he warned America is headed for a homegrown insurgency. McChrystal, the former commander of American troops in Afghanistan, said there are terrifying parallels between the birth of the terrorist group responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks and the violent siege on the US Capitol last week that left five dead and sent shockwaves around the world. Donald Trump has given his supporters 'legitimacy to become even more radical', he told Yahoo News,

An internal Capitol Police intelligence report issued three days before the January 6 riot warned that 'Congress itself' could be the target of MAGA protesters. The report noted that Trump supporters saw January 6—the day that Biden's electoral college win would be certified by Congress—'as the last opportunity to overturn the results of the presidential election.' 'This sense of desperation and disappointment may lead to more of an incentive to become violent,' the report warned. It continued that the rioters' potential targets were 'not necessarily the counter-protesters as they were previously, but rather Congress itself.' Meanwhile, Capitol Police confirmed Friday
