Volunteer Campaigning For Mayoral Candidate In NYC Stabbed Repeatedly In The Bronx…

Via NY POst:

Disturbing new surveillance video shows the moment an Eric Adams campaign volunteer is stabbed repeatedly in the South Bronx — as the mayoral front-runner said he planned to urge the victim to cooperate with cops.

The footage, obtained by NBC New York, shows a scuffle between the 42-year-old victim and his attacker spilling out onto the sidewalk around 2:30 p.m. — with the suspect knifing the man several times.

The attacker continues stabbing the volunteer even after he falls to the ground against a vehicle parked on Morris Avenue.

The suspect, wearing a white tank top, military fatigue pants and a red bandanna, then flees south on Morris Avenue with another man.

“Delta Variant” Of COVID Detected In New Jersey…

Oh well!

Via NJ.com:

The highly contagious Delta variant of COVID-19 has been detected in New Jersey, officials said Monday, raising concerns that millions of the state’s unvaccinated adult residents could be at risk for infection.

The variant, which has run rampant in some states, is still believed to be at low levels in New Jersey.

But federal officials believe it could become the dominant COVID strain in the U.S. as early as next month, because it has spread 40% to 60% more easily than other strains in the United Kingdom, where it has infected tens of thousands.

“We cannot let that happen here,” Health Commissioner Judy Persichilli said at a briefing.

Texas Gov Leads Resistance Against Biden…

Via Politico:

In the span of a week, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has signed bills restricting the teaching of critical race theory and allowing Texans to carry handguns without a license. He’s preparing to order state lawmakers back into a special session to pass legislation restricting voting access, a GOP priority. And in the most pugilistic affront to President Joe Biden’s White House yet, he announced Texas will build its own border wall.

Less than six months into Biden’s presidency, Texas conservatives are in revolt against the new administration. And Abbott, the often overshadowed governor of the nation’s biggest red state, is emerging as an unlikely leader of the Biden resistance.

74 Million People Now On Government Medicaid Dole…

Via MSN:

The number of Americans relying on Medicaid swelled to an apparent all-time high during the coronavirus pandemic with nearly 74 million Americans covered through the safety-net health insurance, new federal figures show.

From February 2020 through January, Medicaid enrollment climbed nationwide by 9.7 million, according to a report, based on the most recent available data, released Monday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Some people signed up last year as the pandemic’s economic fallout took away their jobs, income and health benefits. But according to federal health officials and other Medicaid experts, much of the increase is because of a rule change that was part of the first coronavirus relief law adopted by Congress last year.

That law created a trade-off: It gave states extra federal money to help cover what were anticipated to be ballooning Medicaid costs. In exchange, states needed to promise they would not remove anyone from their Medicaid rolls until the federal government ended the coronavirus public health emergency.

California Will Begin Bailing Out The State’s Weed Businesses…

Via Financial Post:

Getting cannabis regulations wrong comes at a high cost, as California’s $100 million fund to help floundering marijuana businesses has made clear.

The largest U.S. state earmarked money last week to aid companies that are struggling financially in large part because of bureaucratic delays and missteps in transitioning them from temporary licenses into more stringent permanent ones. It’s a cautionary tale for other states that are figuring out how to balance social-equity provisions, tax rates and competing with an illicit market valued at $66 billion last year, according to New Frontier Data.

Honeymoon Over: Iran’s New President Refuses To Meet Biden…

Via Politico:

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Iran’s president-elect said Monday he wouldn’t meet with President Joe Biden nor negotiate over Tehran’s ballistic missile program and its support of regional militias, sticking to a hard-line position following his landslide victory in last week’s election.

Judiciary chief Ebrahim Raisi also described himself as a “defender of human rights” when asked about his involvement in the 1988 mass execution of some 5,000 people. It marked the first time he’s been put on the spot on live television over that dark moment in Iranian history at the end of the Iran-Iraq war.

Dr. Anthony Fauci doubled down Monday on his claim that people who are attacking him are “actually criticizing science” — while insisting he still doesn’t believe COVID-19 leaked from a Chinese lab.

“It is essential as a scientist that you evolve your opinion and your recommendations based on the data as it evolves,” the White House infectious disease expert told the podcast “Sway” that aired Monday.

“And that’s the reason why I say people who then criticize me about that are actually criticizing science,” he told interviewer Kara Swisher of attacks when he changed his mind on mask-wearing.

China’s Central Bank Orders Accounts Cut For Crypto Currency Merchants…

Via Block Crypto:

In its latest effort to crack down on crypto trading activities, China’s central bank has required domestic banks to cut off the funding channels of crypto over-the-counter (OTC) merchants.

The People’s Bank of China (PBoC) issued a statement on Monday, saying that it has recently summoned a meeting with several domestic banks and mobile payment service providers. They included the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), the Agricultural Bank of China (ABC), the Construction Bank of China (CBC), Postal Savings Bank of China, the Industrial Bank, as well as mobile payments app AliPay.

The PBoC said the speculative activities around crypto trading has severely disrupted the balance of China’s financial system, creating the risk of illegal capital outflow across the border and money laundering. It reiterated its 2017 stance that no financial institutions should provide banking and settlement services for crypto-related transactions.
