    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (R) stated that the Department of Homeland Security moving forward with its plans for the Disinformation Governance Board “shows how aggressive this administration is and what kind of warp speed they’ll go into to suppress people’s speech.” Schmitt said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:00] “[I]t just shows how aggressive this administration is and what kind of warp speed they’ll go into to suppress people’s speech. Because they know, the playbook’s clear, you just label stuff you don’t like as disinformation, get your partners — I mean, look what happened with the Hunter Biden laptop story. We know all that stuff is true now. We know the origins of COVID, the Wuhan lab leak…they were labeling all of that as disinformation. Fauci…the ineffectiveness of masks, if you were calling that out, they were taking you down. We can’t let this stand in this country. This is a country founded on the fundamental belief, in the First Amendment as a protection, that people can speak their...
    This is a battle Vladimir Putin cannot win, one that will eventually —inevitably — put the skids under his regime. Every Russian has a mobile phone: the Russians I know are more reliant on apps, more addicted to texting, than even we are in the West. Ukrainians are calling their friends and relatives in Russia. So too are Russians living in Europe, North America and Israel.  They are sending pictures of captured Russian soldiers in tears, photos of children killed by Russian bombs, and of the destruction of Ukraine’s cities. It means Putin will be unable to suppress the truth about the war with Ukraine, despite his attempts to impose a totalitarian state. Some three million Russians have emigrated since Putin took over, and more are flooding out now.  About 150,000 ordinary, decent Russians — including teachers, doctors and scientists — have chosen Britain. The truth is heading to Russia via their phones. In recent days, Putin has clamped down on media, fast-tracking a law that could see anybody telling the truth about the war imprisoned for up to 15...

    By Ahmad Seir, Temeem Akhgar, Kathy Gannon and Joseph Krauss | Associated Press KABUL, Afghanistan — The Taliban violently dispersed scattered protests for a second day Thursday amid warnings that Afghanistan’s already weakened economy could crumble further without the massive international aid that sustained the toppled Western-backed government. The Taliban have sought to project moderation and say they want good relations with the international community, but they will face a difficult balancing act in making concessions to the West, satisfying their own hard-line followers and suppressing dissent. A U.N. official warned of dire food shortages, and experts said the country was severely in need of cash, while noting that the Taliban are unlikely to enjoy the generous international aid that made up most of the ousted government’s budget. The Taliban have pledged to forgive those who fought them and to restore security and normal life to the country after decades of war. But many Afghans fear a return to the Taliban’s harsh rule in the late 1990s, when the group largely confined women to their homes, banned television and music,...

    The governor of Texas has been accused of attempting to make it harder for people of color to vote, after he moved to end one county's 24 hour and drive-through voting.  Greg Abbott, a Republican, appeared on Chris Wallace's Fox News show on Sunday morning. Republicans in state legislatures have filed scores of elections-related measures this year, some of which stem from baseless claims by former President Donald Trump and his allies challenging the results of the presidential election. Wallace asked Abbott about his moves to curtail Harris County's experiment with new voting procedures.  'They would ban 24-hour voting and they would ban drive-through voting,' said Wallace.  Greg Abbott, the Republican of Texas, appeared on Fox News on Sunday and was grilled about his move to end experiments expanding access to the polls YouTube Privacy Policy 'There was no allegation of any fraud in either of those. Harris county, the Houston area, employed both of those and more than half of the voters who showed up were people of color.  'You say you want to make it easier to...
    Leaders from top civil rights groups visited the White House Thursday to urge the administration to work with Congress and pass voting legislation.  National Action Network president Reverend Al Sharpton said the group of eight strategized with President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris on a plan to counter GOP efforts to tighten restrictions on voting. HARRIS ANNOUNCES $25 MILLION PLAN TO TARGET GOP VOTING LAWS "If we don’t put the street heat on it won’t happen," Sharpton told reporters following the meeting. "We informed them this is going to come not from the White House down but from our houses up." The civil rights groups said Congress needs to pass the "For the People Act" and the "John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act" to counter what they believe is a targeted attack against minority voters. The leader of the National Urban League, Marc Morial, accused Republicans of a concerted effort to "suppress" the vote for "black people, brown people, young people, people who are disabled and many other Americans who live with great disadvantage in this country." Republicans deny that they are...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Story,” New York State Assemblyman Ron Kim (D) stated that New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and his top advisers engaged in a “coordinated, criminal conspiracy to suppress data” on coronavirus in nursing homes “that we could have used to save people’s lives.” Kim said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:15] “So, the governor and the governor’s top advisers pushed the state health officials to suppress life and death information about nursing home fatalities. It was a coordinated, criminal conspiracy to suppress data that we the lawmakers desperately needed to legislate and offer better policies and solutions to help people — to help save people’s lives. The changes that Cuomo’s aides made to that report prove that they had the fuller accounting of the nursing home deaths, including the COVID-positive nursing home patients who died in hospitals, as early as last summer of 2020. So, yes, Martha, we need a thorough investigation. We need to pursue charges if this is all true, if they committed an obstruction of justice and suppression of...
    Former First Lady Michelle Obama lashed out at what she called 'partisan and unpatriotic' attempts to suppress voting nationwide as she urged the Senate to pass a a Democrat-backed bill to change voting laws. Expressing support for House Resolution 1, known as the 'For The People Act', Obama said the Senate should pass the bill with no delays after it was approved in the House on Wednesday with no Republican support. 'Our democracy remains under attack by the partisan and unpatriotic actions of those at the state level who are doing everything they can to curtail access to the voting box', wrote Obama in a statement published to Twitter. 'Make no mistake — the idea that we cannot both hold secure elections and ensure that eligible voters can make their voices heard is a false choice.' The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives passed the election reform bill on Wednesday, which they argue is essential to expanding voting access and improving accountability and transparency in Washington. The bill - also known as HR1 - is one of a handful which have been...
    CNN’s John Berman went after Fox News host Tucker Carlson for attempting to “suppress the memory” of the Jan. 6 Capitol attack, calling his primetime show “Fantasy Island.” Berman noted that the Senate will hold the first public hearing about the attack, which will include the top officials responsible for securing the Capitol on Jan. 6 — many of whom are now out of jobs. “And I don’t think this could come at a more important time because you are seeing a wave of revisionism among some Republican senators like Ron Johnson who says it wasn’t an armed insurrection, and Tucker Carlson on his show, which I called Fantasy Island last night, devoted a big chunk of it to saying it wasn’t white supremacists. There was no armed insurrection. There is an effort to really, I think, suppress the memory of what happened.” Punchbowl News founder Anna Palmer agreed with Berman, calling Johnson’s comments “outside the reality of what actually happened.” Palmer went on to note that Tuesday’s hearing could lead to some legitimate changes regarding how law enforcement officers patrol the Capitol. “And...
    Dr. Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention speaks while U.S. President Donald Trump listens during the daily briefing of the coronavirus task force at the White House on April 22, 2020 in Washington, DC.Drew Angerer | Getty Images The Trump administration sought to suppress Covid-19 testing in the United States last year by softening guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on who needed to be tested, a House panel said Monday. In August, the CDC revised its Covid-19 testing guidance to say that people who don't have symptoms "do not necessarily need a test" even if they were exposed to an infected person. The move was widely criticized by public health specialists and politicians, who said testing asymptomatic people is an important part of identifying and cutting off chains of spread. Assistant Secretary for Health Adm. Brett Giroir, who led the Trump administration's testing effort, at the time firmly denied allegations the White House was pressuring health officials to change the guidance. But the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis on Monday...
    Former President Barack Obama compared President Donald Trump to a despot who thinks he can “do anything to stay in power” during a “60 Minutes” interview broadcast Sunday. “I think that there has been this sense over the last several years that literally anything goes and is justified in order to get power. And that’s not unique to the United States,” Obama told the CBS News program. “There are strong men and dictators around the world who think that ‘I can do anything to stay in power. I can kill people. I can throw them in jail. I can run phony elections. I can suppress journalists.’”(RELATED: Tucker Carlson Reviews Latest Obama Memoir: ‘Barack Obama Is A Genius; You Are A Racist’) The Obama administration allegedly obtained reporter and editor phone conversations in 2013, according to the Associated Press. Obama also reportedly targeted Fox News correspondent James Rosen with surveillance. Obama was also critical Sunday of Trump for challenging the results of the 2020 presidential election, with accusations of voter fraud and initiating legal action, saying “the president doesn’t like to...
    Democratic Georgia State Rep. Vernon Jones challenged his state’s former Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams telling her to “bring it on” if she wants a “fair fight” in the Georgia political process. “We ain't bullshittin',” Jones, a vocal supporter of President Trump, told a crowd during a news conference contesting the vote counts in Georgia amid presidential election uncertainty. “Stacey Abrams, you want a fair fight? Bring it on. You've been like a vacuum cleaner getting all this underground money ... I know one thing you're spending it on — suppressing black people." Jones argued that Abrams and fellow Democrats have suppressed black voters by “intimidating” them for having “individual thoughts.” “Let me tell you; we’re not going to stand for that. We’re not going to back down,” Jones added. “We’re going to fight. We don’t cut and run. We’re going to fight. This is a battle cry.” [email protected]: "We ain't bullshittin'. Stacey Abrams, you want a fair fight? Bring it on. You've been like a vacuum cleaner getting all this underground money...I know one thing you're spending it...
    The recent sight of people standing in long lines to vote — some waiting as long as 11 hours in Georgia — made me so proud to be an American that I couldn’t speak. I just pointed at the TV to show my wife why I was choked up. Americans holding tight to their right to vote are to my mind the essence of taking pride in a national government that is “of the people, by the people, for the people,” as President Abraham Lincoln put in his Gettysburg Address. DEMS GRASP AT OPPORTUNITIES IN RED STATES AS ELECTION DAY LOOMS In a modern America, where overnight delivery and fast food are the norm, the sight of people giving up hours of their time to vote is pure patriotism — a defiant act to protect our form of democratic governance. Over the past four years President Trump — with the help of too many state Republican Party officials — has tried to put a friendly face on suppressing the votes of people who do not vote for him. More from Opinion...
    Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley criticized big tech CEOs as a “modern-day aristocracy” during a Wednesday night appearance on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and others appeared Tuesday before the Senate Commerce Committee to answer questions about the censorship of the New York Post’s reporting on Hunter Buden. Fireworks from the proceedings included Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz harshly criticizing Dorsey for stating that such censorship does not impact elections, a clip of which Fox News host Tucker Carlson played before introducing Hawley. “What did we learn today?” Tucker asked. WATCH: “Well, we learned that the tech companies are gonna keep doing this,” Hawley responded. “They’re gonna keep censoring conservatives. They’re gonna keep putting their thumb on the scales for the Biden campaign as long as Congress lets them.” In calling for Congress to remove the “special immunity” granted to them as publishers, the Missouri senator stressed that the big tech companies are “totally unrepentant” and will keep censoring conservatives as long as “they think they can get away with it.” “Don’t you...
    BERLIN, Sept 29 (Reuters) – Angela Merkel’s government wants to restrict the size of parties to suppress the spread of the coronavirus in Germany, a draft resolution seen by Reuters ahead of a meeting between the chancellor and state premiers on Tuesday showed. Germany has fared better than many other European countries so far during the pandemic, but Merkel told leaders of her party on Monday that the infection rate could hit 19,200 per day if the current trend continues, a party source said. Under a “hot spot strategy”, the government wants to tighten restrictions to limit parties to 25 people in private and 50 in public places in areas where the infection rate hits 35 per 100,000 over a seven day rolling period, the draft showed. Temporary bans on serving alcohol would also be enforced. If the seven-day infection rate hits 50 per 100,000, celebrations in private spaces would be restricted to 10 people and those in public spaces to 25, the draft resolution showed. Mass-selling newspaper Bild reported that the plans were running into resistance from some of...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) accused President Donald Trump of wanting to “confuse people when it comes to voting” on Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Deadline.” According to Pelosi, the hope was “they might not cast a vote.” Pelosi said, “They’re trying though, to just hooking it up with some of the other things that they’re doing to confuse the public when it comes to the elections, and we cannot let them do that. The American people, I do believe, think that they should determine who the next president of the United States is, not Vladimir Putin.” She continued, “The president wants to confuse people when it comes to voting and so that they might not cast a vote, and that is another way to interfere with the elections in our country. So that people might not have the proper information and so just decide not to vote. But we can’t let them do that because again, it’s not just about voting, as important as that is, it’s about our national security of our country, and when a foreign power tries...
    A rare group of HIV patients are able to naturally suppress the virus without taking any drugs, a new study suggests. These individuals, called 'elite controllers,' are only believed to account for 0.5 percent of people who are infected. Researchers found that, because of where these patients have the virus encoded in their DNA, the pathogen is unable to make copies of itself. This keeps the virus below detectable levels, which makes it untransmissible. The team, from the Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard, says the findings provide evidence that these people have achieved a 'functional cure' and could lead to a cure for those dependent on drugs to keep the virus from spreading. HIV patients known as 'elite controllers' have the virus integrated in parts of their DNA where there is little gene activity, which prevents the virus from being able to make copies of itself (file image) In the US, more than 1.2 million people are infected with HIV, the virus that leads to the potentially deadly disease AIDS. About 36,000 new infections were diagnosed last year. Once...
    HOUSE Speaker Nancy Pelosi told Americans to “ignore Trump” and claimed the president is attempting to “suppress the vote” in a press conference Saturday. “Don’t pay any attention to what the president is saying because it is all designed to suppress the vote,” Pelosi said in the rare news conference. ⚠️Click here for the latest news on Donald Trump 5Nancy Pelosi speaks about the United States Postal Service in a press conferenceCredit: EPA 5Pelosi called on Americans to 'ignore Trump' during a press conference SaturdayCredit: EPA The top Democrat, who called for lawmakers to return to session for a vote on a $25 billion funding bill for the U.S. Postal Service, has repeatedly said that mail-in ballots are essential during the coronavirus pandemic as millions of voters plan to send in their ballots instead of heading to the polls. Trump has routinely raged against mail-in voting, often calling it a “scam” to influence the election in favor of Democrats. “Representatives of the Post Office have repeatedly stated that they DO NOT NEED MONEY, and will not make changes.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned President Trump's efforts to "suppress" the vote and "scare" people away from the polls in November and encouraged Americans to make a plan to vote. "Don't pay any attention to what the president is saying because it is all designed to suppress the vote," Pelosi said at a rare Saturday news conference ahead of a vote on a U.S. Postal Service funding bill. HOUSE DEMOCRATS PUSH FORWARD WITH $25B POST OFFICE BILL, GOP DISMISSES RARE SATURDAY VOTE AS A 'JOKE' Pelosi and Democrats have accused Trump of trying to sabotage the November election by delaying the mail and peddling misinformation about mail-in voting. Now they say Trump is deploying more voter suppression tactics by suggesting he'll send law enforcement to polling places to monitor the election. "Why would he do that, except to scare people off?" Pelosi said. "It's in their playbook that they'll have people intimidated to vote by having ICE agents ... or other law enforcement there to instill fear in people as they show up," she said. "...It's scary but ignore that. It's a...
