Fauci says U.S. should prepare to do anything to fight omicron variant

No.969307 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Americans need to be prepared to do “anything and everything” to fight the omicron Covid variant, U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Faucisaid Sunday.

Still, it’s “too early to say” whether lockdowns or new mandates will be appropriate, Fauci said on ABC’s “This Week.”

The World Health Organization last week classified omicron as a “variant of concern,” meaning it is more contagious, more virulent or more skilled at evading public health measures, vaccines and therapeutics.

The variant, first discovered in South Africa, has several mutations to the spike protein that allows the virus to enter the body, and some of those mutations could lead to increased antibody resistance and transmissibility.

The U.S. had already saidit would restrict travel for non-U.S. citizensfromSouth Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Mozambique and Malawi. The variant hasbeen foundin theU.K., Israel,Belgium,the Netherlands,Germany, Italy, Australia and Hong Kong, but not yet in the U.S.

“Inevitably, it will be here. The question is will we be prepared for it? If and when, and it’s going to be when, it comes here hopefully we will be ready for it,” Fauci added.

Fauci will be meeting Sunday with PresidentJoe Bidenand the Covid response team to discuss the variant and the administration’s response, a White House official said.

Biotech companies have sprung into action to fight against omicron.Moderna’s Chief Medical Officer Paul Burton said Sunday the vaccine makercould roll out a reformulated vaccineagainst the omicron coronavirus variant early next year. Although it’s not clear whether new formulations will be needed or if current vaccines will provide appropriate protection.

SUV Parade killer Brooks “Hitler was right” “negros are the true hebrews” "kill whitey"

No.970470 ViewReplyOriginalReport
In 2015, he also shared a disturbing anti-Semitic meme that appeared to align with the beliefs of the Black Hebrew Israelites, according to another screenshot shared by the Daily Mail.

Titled “Hitler knew who the real Jews were!,” it shares the widely debunked claim that the Nazi maniac had warned that his genocide was partly driven because he knew “the negros … are the true hebrews.”

It suggests World War 3 would start when people “learn Hitler was right” and “did the world a favor by killing” Jews.

In his rap songs, Brooks also bragged that he was a “terrorist” and a “killer in the city,” according to the Sun.

Democrat Government of Detroit Suburb Filthy with Corruption

No.970517 ViewReplyOriginalReport

DETROIT – The former manager of the City of Taylor’s Community Development and former Treasurer of Mayor Richard Sollars’ campaign fund, pleaded guilty today to conspiring to commit bribery with Richard Sollars, Shady Awad, real estate developer, and Hadir Altoon, real estate developer and owner of Dominick’s Market, Acting United States Attorney Saima S. Mohsin announced today.

Mohsin was joined in the announcement by Timothy Waters, Special Agent in Charge of the Michigan Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Pleading guilty was Jeffrey Baum, 46, of Allen Park.

During his guilty plea hearing, Baum admitted accepting thousands of dollars in cash bribe payments for himself and over $40,000 in cash payments to Sollars in connection with the City of Taylor’s Right of First Refusal (“ROFR”) Program. The ROFR Program is designed to allow Taylor to acquire tax-foreclosed properties from Wayne County for redevelopment. According to court records, between 2017 and 2019, Baum helped Sollars steal money from Sollars’ campaign by giving Sollars blank campaign checks, bearing his signature as the treasurer of the campaign fund, so that Altoon, with Baum’s assistance on occasions, could prepare false and inflated invoices for catering services that were never rendered, were prepared in amounts higher than the actual amount for the catering services provided, and/or were for catering services for which Altoon had already been paid by the City of Taylor.

DOJ: Bannon attempting ‘frivolous’ effort to turn court case into media spectacle

No.969717 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport

The Justice Department on Sunday night accused Steve Bannon’s defense team of lodging “frivolous” legal complaints in order to cause a public dust-up with prosecutors as he battles criminal charges for attempting to thwart the House’s Jan. 6 select committee.

In a 10-page filing, prosecutors said an attorney for Bannon, Evan Corcoran, had repeatedly rebuffed their efforts to negotiate an evidence-sharing agreement, a standard part of the process in criminal trials. Instead, the prosecution said, Bannon’s defense used a public court filing Wednesday — and a statement to the Washington Post — to complain about the case.

“The defense’s misleading claims, failure to confer, unexplained wholesale opposition, and extrajudicial statements make clear the defense’s real purpose: to abuse criminal discovery to try this case in the media rather than in court,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Vaughn wrote.

DOJ’s salvo comes as Bannon is attempting to dramatically slow the criminal proceedings against him. Bannon used a court appearance earlier this month to foreshadow efforts to delay the case for months. Judge Carl Nichols pushed back on that effort and set a Dec. 7 hearing to revisit the schedule.

Russia preparing to attack Ukraine by late January: Ukraine defense intelligence agency chief

Russia preparing to attack Ukraine by late January: Ukraine defense intelligence agency chief
By Howard Altman

Russia has more than 92,000 troops amassed around Ukraine’s borders and is preparing for an attack by the end of January or beginning of February, the head of Ukraine’s defense intelligence agency told Military Times.

Such an attack would likely involve airstrikes, artillery and armor attacks followed by airborne assaults in the east, amphibious assaults in Odessa and Mariupul and a smaller incursion through neighboring Belarus, Ukraine Brig. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov told Military Times Saturday morning in an exclusive interview.

Russia’s large-scale Zapad 21 military exercise earlier this year proved, for instance, that they can drop upwards of 3,500 airborne and special operations troops at once, he said.

The attack Russia is preparing, said Budanov, would be far more devastating than anything before seen in the conflict that began in 2014 that has seen some 14,000 Ukrainians killed.

Speaking to the Washington Post on Friday, Ukraine’s new Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov said it was unclear whether Russian President Vladimir Putin has yet decided to attack.

Three Men Found Guilty of Murdering Ahmaud Arbery

No.967771 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I'm still upset this case received less attention than the Rittenhouse one. Particularly with the left, who hold the pretense of being vigilant about racial equality, but curiously preoccupy themselves with cases that involve predominantly white people (see also the Petito case), while actual cases involving minorities go ignored by them in comparison.
>The defendants were found guilty of murder and other charges on Wednesday for the pursuit and fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery. They face up to life in prison. Follow live here.

>Three men found guilty of murder in Arbery shooting.

>BRUNSWICK, Ga. - Three white men were found guilty of murder and other charges on Wednesday for the pursuit and fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man, in a case that, together with the killing of George Floyd, helped inspire the racial justice protests of last year.

>The three defendants - Travis McMichael, 35; his father, Gregory McMichael, 65; and their neighbor William Bryan, 52 - face sentences of up to life in prison for the state crimes. The men have also been indicted on separate federal charges, including hate crimes and attempted kidnapping, and are expected to stand trial in February on those charges.

>The verdict suggested that the jury agreed with prosecutors' arguments that Mr. Arbery posed no imminent threat to the men and that the men had no reason to believe he had committed a crime, giving them no legal right to chase him through their suburban neighborhood. "You can't start it and claim self-defense," the lead prosecutor argued in her closing statements. "And they started this."

>The outcome of the trial brought considerable relief to Mr. Arbery's family, who had watched the proceedings from inside the courthouse for weeks.

>"I never thought this day would come, but God is good," said Wanda Cooper-Jones, Mr. Arbery's mother.

Senate GOP blocks defense bill, throwing it into limbo

No.970106 ViewReplyOriginalReport

Senate Republicans on Monday blocked a mammoth defense policy bill, throwing the legislation into limbo as Congress heads into a packed year-end schedule.

The Senate voted 45-51 to start winding down debate on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which sets spending levels and policy for the Pentagon. But that is short of the 60 votes needed to overcome the hurdle.

Sen. Susan Collins (Maine) was the only Republican to vote with Democrats to advance the bill, while Democratic Sens. Ed Markey (Mass.), Jeff Merkley (Ore.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Ron Wyden (Ore.) and Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) voted against moving forward along with 46 GOP senators.

The setback comes amid a stalemate on allowing votes on amendments to the bill. Leadership previously got a deal before the Thanksgiving recess to allow for 18 amendment votes, but that agreement was blocked by several Republicans who didn’t get their own proposals included.
