Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions failed in his bid to reclaim his old Senate seat after losing to former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville in the Alabama GOP runoff on Tuesday.
Tuberville will go on to face Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) in November. Jones is considered the most vulnerable Democrat facing reelection in 2020 in a race The Cook Political Report rates as “Leans Republican.”
Top pediatricians tell NBC they support reopening schools:
— Ronna McDaniel (@GOPChairwoman) July 13, 2020
Send them back.
Let the word go forth: kids don’t get it and they don’t spread it. Also, don’t watch MSNBC or CNN. Actually, you should watch MSNBC which compiled multiple pediatricians who said it was time to get kids back to school. Yes, it seems the experts are actually supporting President Trump’s position that schools should re-open in the fall. MSNBC host Craig Melvin’s face at the end of all of these doctors pretty much dispelling the COVID panic porn being peddled by the national media. You’d think sending your kids back to school would be a death sentence. Granted, the experts have been wrong before, and this group of people has peddled some absolute garbage advice regarding this virus. The best being that everyone else must stay inside now, unless you’re gathering to conduct a mass Black Lives Matter protest because, you see, issues of moral urgency makes the virus non-transmittable in these settings. So, what to make of this? The best part is that liberals who shovel down the propaganda by the liberal media probably either ignored this segment or refuse to believe it was real.

Alleged Pervert Ghislaine Maxwell Breaks Down In Tears After She’s Sentenced To Remain In Custody Till July 2021 Trial…
Via Daily Mail:
Ghislaine Maxwell cried as she was denied bail on Tuesday and learned she must stay locked up until her trial next summer, as Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam pleaded not guilty to the sex trafficking charges brought against her.
The 58-year-old wiped tears away and hung her head as she learned her fate, wearing a prison-issued brown top and with her normally short hair now long and swept back into a bun, appearing via video link.
U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan denied Maxwell’s proposal of a $5 million bond co-signed by two of her sisters and backed up by more than $3.75 million in property in the UK.
Via KSL News Radio:
(CNN) — Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been taken to the hospital and treated for a possible infection, according to a court spokeswoman.
“Justice Ginsburg was admitted to The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning for treatment of a possible infection,” spokeswoman Kathleen Arberg said Tuesday.
“She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. last night after experiencing fever and chills. She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August. The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.”

But the lessons that ought to have followed the election—lessons about the importance of understanding other Americans, the necessity of resisting tribalism, and the centrality of the free exchange of ideas to a democratic society—have not been learned. Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.
Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions. I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history. Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative.
My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.
Via Daily Caller:
A Democratic strategist called a Republican female senator “inbred racist trash” for criticizing the founders of the Black Lives Matter group.
Republican Tennessee Sen. Marsha Blackburn critiqued the nonprofit Black Lives Matter national organization in a Monday tweet, saying that BLM is run by “trained Marxists.” She clarified in a later tweet her comment referred to BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who has called herself and her fellow BLM organizers “trained Marxists,” according to the New York Post.
“We cannot allow our great country to be destroyed under the pretense of social justice,” Blackburn tweeted. She did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Good. Huawei sucks anyway.
Huawei Technologies will be banned from Britain’s 5G network, the UK government announced on Tuesday in a major U-turn.
The decision follows escalating tension with Beijing and pressure from Washington and could add to the pressure on other European countries to review their approach to the Chinese telecoms giant.
By tearing up his earlier policy to allow Huawei up to a 35 per cent share in the non-sensitive parts of Britain’s 5G networks, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has ignored threats from Chinese officials that there will be “consequences” if the UK treats China as a “hostile partner”.
The decision is one of the multiple signs of growing unease in Europe about China’s actions, including the imposition of national security law in Hong Kong and its initial handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
3 Days Later, Sailors Still Trying To Put Out Fire On USS Bonhomme Richard, Temperature In Vessel Over 1,000 Degrees…
Via ABC News:
More than 400 sailors are working to put out the massive fire that continues to rage aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard in San Diego and Navy officials are unclear how long the blaze might continue to burn.
The fire has brought down the amphibious assault ship’s forward mast and caused other damage to the ship’s superstructure that rises above its flight deck.
“There is a tremendous amount of heat underneath and that’s where it’s — it’s flashing up — also forward, closer to the bow again there’s a heat source and we’re trying to get to that as well,” Rear Adm. Philip Sobeck, the commander of Expeditionary Strike Group 3 said at a news conference Monday in San Diego.

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are on vacation time.
On Saturday afternoon, the couple was spotted arriving in Greece to celebrate the Forrest Gump actor, who turned 64 on Thursday.
Hanks, who became an honorary Greek citizen in December 2019, wore a white polo, black shorts, sunglasses, white hat, and sandals while walking with his luggage beside Wilson, 63, who opted for a black shirt, blue jeans, and sunglasses. Both stars wore a mask.
On Thursday, Hanks celebrated his birthday by sharing a video on Instagram of himself diving into the pool, resulting in a huge splash. “This Greyhound is 64!! Hanx,” he captioned the epic video, referencing his new World War II movie, Greyhound, which dropped Friday on Apple TV+.

This is what they’re spending their attention on. How you know you’re in Chicago? Census Cowboy has to wear a bulletproof vest.
Via Daily Wire:
On Monday, Chicago’s mayor Lori Lightfoot held a press conference to introduce a measure aimed at promoting the United States census among Chicago residents: a “census cowboy.”
The “census cowboy” made his first appearance as Lightfoot explained that he was her “superhero” to call in when things got out of hand, the way the mayor of Gotham City frequently phoned Batman to assist in the classic television show.
“A fan of Batman, Lightfoot said she was sounding a ‘distress signal’ like the one used to summon the caped crusader by Gotham Police officials to call on the social media star, the Dreadhead Cowboy,” WTTW Chicago reported.
The scene was nothing short of bizarre, with Lightfoot donning a bright green cowboy hat to summon her mounted savior.

Hospitals Confirm Recording Mistakes In Florida’s COVID-19 Report Greatly Falsely Increasing Positive Number Of Cases
Wow. Part of this is apparently because of double counting. With the same person getting more than one test to confirm a positive as two positives, for example. So how many places is this going on?
Via Fox 35:
The Florida Department of Health released its daily coronavirus testing report showing a statewide positivity rate of 11 percent, but FOX 35 News investigated and quickly noticed some shocking positivity rates.
Countless labs have reported a 100 percent positivity rate, which means every single person tested was positive. Other labs had very high positivity rates. FOX 35 found that testing sites like Centra Care reported that 83 people were tested and all tested positive. Then, NCF Diagnostics in Alachua reported 88 percent of tests were positive.
How could that be? FOX 35 News investigated these astronomical numbers, contacting every local location mentioned in the report.
Coopted by the Chinese. Matches the Red Guard in the street.
Joe Biden cited a quote made famous by Chinese communist dictator Mao Zedong during a digital fundraising speech with former Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett.
“We’ve got to get real economic relief into women’s hands now,” Biden said on Monday evening to the 14 wealthy donors who attended the digital fundraising session.
According to the pool reporter who watched the event, Biden then cited the Chinese proverb, “Women hold up half the sky.”

This is what he’s concerned about with the spike in shootings in New York and a one year old dead?
As Twitchy reported earlier, there was a four-siren alert that someone had splashed red paint on the “V” in the Black Lives Mural that was painted in Manhattan in front of Trump Tower with help from Mayor Bill de Blasio and MSNBC’s Al Sharpton.
De Blasio has his priorities in order, and after “liberating” Fifth Avenue from the looming Trump Tower, he sent out what looks to be a really unnecessarily large Department of Transportation Crew to repaint the “damaged” portions of the mural. Your life might not be safe in New York City, but that mural damn sure is. If he weren’t for defunding the police he’d probably assign some now to guard it.
