Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco – all pit holes because of Democrats.
Via Fox News:
Thousands of lives may be at risk this summer in Los Angeles and politicians could be to blame, according to one famous TV doctor.
Radio host and addiction medicine specialist Dr. Drew Pinsky talked about the horrific conditions on the streets of America’s second-largest city Thursday before making the frightening prediction on Fox News Radio’s “The Brian Kilmeade Show,” which also airs on Fox Nation.
“I live in the great state of California, the utopia that is California, which is a nightmare,” Pinsky said.
“I want to give you a prediction here. There will be a major infectious disease epidemic this summer in Los Angeles.”
There are consequences for putting out bull.

A significant portion of CNN’s staff that covers health is being laid off, which comes just days after CNN denied rumors that mass layoffs were coming to the far-left network.
“Specific details were not yet known, but a source told Fox News that ‘basically the whole division’ will lose their jobs,” Fox New’s Brian Flood reported. “CNN did not respond to multiple requests for comment.”
Flood noted that TVNewser, a media reporting website founded by CNN propagandist Brian Stelter, magically got confirmation on Friday — right before the weekend when the news cycle usually dies — that CNN was, in fact, laying off a lot of its employees.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta and correspondent Elizabeth Cohen are reportedly not a part of the layoffs.
A CNN spokesperson told TVNewser: “As part of the normal course of business, our newsgathering team made a small restructure earlier this week that ultimately impacts 6-7 employees within CNN’s Health Unit.”
The man accused of stabbing an elderly woman to death in her Sharpstown home detailed the gruesome killing to police investigators, saying that he spent at least 40 minutes with her as she begged for her life, according to prosecutors.
Marco Cobos, 19, allegedly used multiple knives to stab Etta Nugent to death for about 40 minutes to an hour, according to the charging documents which prosecutors read aloud during his first appearance in court Wednesday morning. The medical examiner reported finding more than 13 stab wounds on the 75-year-old woman’s body.
He has been charged with capital murder in Nugent’s death. The Mexican national is being held at the Harris County Jail without bond and federal authorities have placed an immigration detainer on him.
Cobos, who also is homeless, had sought help from Nugent to fix his broken down Ford F-150, but she was unable to “because of her age,” police said.
Hilarious: Turns Out Adam Schiff Was For Declassifying Russia Investigation Info Before He Was Against It
While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice,
Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies.
The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase.
This is un-American.

Gee, I wonder what changed?
As we told you earlier today, the news that President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr plan to declassify material related to the origins of the Russia collusion probe isn’t sitting well with Rep. Adam Schiff.
It’s turning out to be a very rich “shot & chaser” environment with Congressman Schiffty.
Ocasio-Cortez Freaks Out Over DC Tornado Warning, Links It To Climate Change, Gets Called Out By Meterologist
Moonbat doesn’t get that yes, there are tornadoes in areas other than the Plains.
Via Fox News:
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., took to social media on Thursday during a tornado warning in Washington, D.C., and swiftly tried to connect it to climate change — prompting one meteorologist to call her out for not knowing “the difference between weather and climate.”
The freshman congresswoman began by sharing a video on Instagram briefly showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region and prompted a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway.
“There’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “This is crazy.”
The Green New Deal advocate then shared a story published by PBS in March questioning if climate change makes tornadoes worse and put emphasis on a quote from the piece that read, “Rather than lie squarely in the Great Plains, America’s tornadoes appear to be sliding into the Midwest and Southeast.”
The tornado warning followed a devastating tornado in Missouri’s capital of Jefferson City the night before.
“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers as she reviewed the article. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”
U.S. sanctions targeting #Iran's mullahs have forced the IRGC to significantly decrease the Hezbollah budget.
As a result, Hezbollah is launching such vehicles & other efforts, literally begging locals for donations.

Difference between pallets of cash vs. crushing sanctions.
Via Fox News:
Newly declassified intelligence shows that Palestinian terror group Hamas had to introduce “austerity plans” due to lack of funding from the Iranian regime.
State Department officials say the intelligence that was shared exclusively with Fox News reveals Tehran’s diminishing resources and influence within the region, prompting cutbacks among groups backed by the regime.
This comes amid a tough sanctions regime introduced by the U.S., which sent the country into a recession, with inflation topping 50 percent.
Due to lack of funding from Iran, Hamas had to introduce “austerity plans” while other Shia militia groups were told by Iran that they need to find other sources of revenue as Iran is no longer in a position to provide them the funds.
Via The Hill:
President Trump on Friday announced that the U.S. will send roughly 1,500 troops to the Middle East in order to counter Iran’s influence in the region.
Trump emphasized that the new deployment will provide force protection for existing troops in the area amid heightened tensions with Tehran.
The president approved the additional forces on Thursday following a meeting with acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford at the White House.
“We want to have protection,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
Director of the Joint Staff Rear Adm. Michael Gilday later told reporters at the Pentagon that fewer than 1,000 new U.S. troops will actually be deploying to the Middle East, while roughly 600 soldiers already in the region will have their deployment extended.
The new soldiers sent are part of a Patriot antimissile battalion being deployed to defend against missile threats.
The first picture has emerged of the man suspected of planting a parcel bomb which wounded more than a dozen people in Lyon this afternoon.
The photo is being circulated by French media.
At least 13 people including a girl aged eight were wounded in a suspected terrorist nail bomb attack in the French city this evening.
A massive explosion was heard soon after 5.30pm after a man on a bicycle was seen placing a bag on the ground soon after 5.30pm.
Police who have already examined the camera footage said he looked ‘very calm’ as he arrived wearing ‘dark glasses and a hooded top’.
Acting chops aside, Anne Hathaway has always looked like the type of person whose superpowers include the ability to give one heck of a condescending lecture. As it turns out, the white woman is chiding other “white women” for fighting for the lives of unborn children of any color. On social media, the Ocean’s 8actress slammed the “complicity of white women” in producing the recent pro-life Alabama legislation signed by Alabama Governor Kay Ivey.
Hathaway took to Instagram to rail against the recent Alabama law, beginning with the typical progressive inanity of describing the bill as “controlling women’s bodies.” She wrote, “Yes the anti-abortion movement is primarily about controlling women’s bodies under the premise (for many, sincere) of saving lives.” Nice that she gives some ignorant paws the benefit of the doubt, isn’t it?
Of course she bashed the abominable “white men,” whose work this is “primarily,” but she also made room to sprinkle some hatred on the ladies. Hathaway wrote, “HOWEVER a white woman sponsored the bill and a white woman sponsored it into law.”
A new poll conducted by Gallup found that the overwhelming majority of Democrats disapprove of the job that the U.S. House of Representatives is doing under the leadership of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
The poll which was released on Friday found that approval of Congress among Democrats stands at 25 percent, which is a 7-point drop from February.
Have at it.
Does anyone else see the irony of Omar chastising anybody else for “religious fundamentalism” and controlling women?
Via Free Beacon:
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.) castigated what she saw as the “hypocrisy” of “religious fundamentalists” for attempting to “control” women through pro-life laws, while “not living” up to their own values.
Omar, who has courted controversy with her anti-Israel views since joining Congress, took to the floor of the House of Representatives on Thursday to attack a slew of new pro-life laws enacted by conservative states across the country.
“Religious fundamentalists are trying to manipulate the state laws in order to impose their beliefs on an entire society all with complete disregard for voices and rights of American women,” Omar said.
Citing Georgia’s new heartbeat statute and a recent Alabama law that bans abortion except for instances of maternal health, Omar claimed such actions were a only meant to assert “control” over women.
De Blasio killed the groundhog, but did the right thing in offering Nadler water if he was dehydrated.

Scary moment at this press conference now, @RepJerryNadler appears to be dehydrated, perhaps low sugar as the conference was underway. They are clearing the room so he can get medical assistance. He’s conscious, drinking water and has just been fed an orange

We heard back from a @RepJerryNadler spokesperson who said the Congressman
is okay. “Seems to have been dehydrated and it was very warm in the room. He is now responsive and receiving a check-up.”

Team Pelosi Accuses Trump Of Posting ‘Doctored’ Video Of Her Stammering; NBC: There’s Just One Problem
Trump didn’t spread the “doctored” video, despite people like CNN’s S.E. Cupp claiming he did. Meanwhile there are dozens of videos that show that Pelosi has some kind of a problem.
Via Daily Wire:
The bitter feud between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to escalate, with new nicknames, new accusations and counter-accusations, and, now, a new video posted by the president that Pelosi’s team decried as “doctored” but that NBC News notes appears to simply be a montage of the speaker’s stammering.
Amid Pelosi’s accusations that Trump threw a “temper tantrum” in a closed-door meeting with Democrats and is engaged in a “cover-up,” Trump tweeted a video aired on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that is a 30-second montage of Pelosi stammering repeatedly over the course of a 20-minute news conference Thursday.
In response, Pelosi’s Chief of Staff Drew Hammill accused the president of posting a “doctored video.” “Hours before the posting of this doctored video, @washingtonpost reports that doctored Pelosi videos are multiplying across social media,” he wrote, referencing a Post report on a different video circulating on social media.
Pelosi’s daughter Christine Pelosi also declared the video a “fake.” “Fake video altered for speed- just like you did to Acosta,” she wrote, a reference to the infamous Acosta video, which Trump critics said was deliberately “doctored,” an accusation further analysis debunked. “Dig deeper — you can give the presidency more respect than this.”
But as NBC explains, Team Pelosi’s “doctored” and “fake” descriptions appear to be wrong. While a digitial forensics expert did determine that a different video starring Pelosi was altered to make it appear that she was slurring her words, the video posted by Trump does not appear to have been “altered for speed,” as the speaker’s daughter alleged.
Spying on Trump isn’t un-American, but apparently investigating it is. Shifty seems to be having a meltdown.
Via Daily Caller:
California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff called Attorney General William Barr’s investigation into the origins of the Russia probe “un-American” in a Thursday night tweet.
“While Trump stonewalls the public from learning the truth about his obstruction of justice, Trump and Barr conspire to weaponize law enforcement and classified information against their political enemies,” Schiff wrote. “The coverup has entered a new and dangerous phase. This is un-American.”
President Donald Trump on Thursday directed the heads of the CIA, FBI, State Department and other agencies to cooperate with Barr as he investigates the origins of former special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

What happens next with Brexit is unclear.
LONDON (Reuters) – Fighting back tears, Theresa May said on Friday she would quit, setting up a contest that will install a new British prime minister who could pursue a cleaner break with the European Union.
May’s departure deepens the Brexit crisis as a new leader, who should be in place by the end of July, is likely to want a more decisive split, raising the chances of a confrontation with the EU and potentially a snap parliamentary election.
Her voice cracking with emotion, May, who endured crises and humiliation in her failed effort to find a compromise Brexit deal that parliament could ratify, said she would resign on Friday, June 7 with a leadership contest beginning the following week.
But… but… but… Trump!
