Singapore To Jail People For 6 Months For Standing Too Close To Strangers – Summit News

Singapore is set to punish people who stand too close to strangers with 6 months in prison as the true scope of “social distancing” measures begins to be felt around the world.

According to a press release from the country’s Ministry of Health, Singaporeans who fail to maintain a distance of one meter from other people during “non-transient” public interactions can be fined 10,000 Singapore dollars ($6,985) or hit with 6 months in jail.

The measure is obviously designed to target groups of people who congregate or people who visit their friends and relatives.

As the resentment of being forced to live under quarantine lockdown for weeks and possibly months builds, authorities across the world are undoubtedly going to face a growing backlash from the citizenry, no matter how bad the spread of coronavirus.

In France, a 35-year-old man was sent to prison after repeatedly violating lockdown measures after being found guilty of “endangering the lives of others.”…

Record 3.3 Million Americans Filed For Unemployment Benefits This Week – Zero Hedge

The pace at which Americans are losing their jobs is absolutely breathtaking. According to the Wall Street Journal, the largest number of new claims for unemployment benefits ever recorded in a single week prior to this year was 695,000 during the week that ended October 2nd, 1982.

So that means that what we are now witnessing is completely unprecedented, as The US Department of Labor reports a stunning increase of 3.283 million people sought initial jobless claims last week amid the virus lockdowns (almost double the expectation of a 1.7million increase).

The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that nearly every single state cited Covid-19 in its reporting.

Service industries were hit hard, but the BLS says other industries were cited: health care and social assistance, arts, entertainment and recreation, transportation and warehousing, and manufacturing. Only three states had estimated claims…

Trump Administration To Designate Venezuela As State Sponsor Of Terrorism, Charge Nicolas Maduro – WREG

The Trump administration is expected to designate Venezuela as a state sponsor of terrorism as soon as Thursday and bring charges against the country’s president, Nicolás Maduro, according to five sources familiar with the situation, in a momentous move that will mark a modern low point in relations between the U.S. and the ailing socialist state.

The designation puts Venezuela in the company of only four other countries – North Korea, Iran, Sudan and Syria – that have “repeatedly provided support for acts of international terrorism,” and will enable the U.S. government to implement further crippling sanctions on the Maduro regime.

Prosecutors from the U.S. Department of Justice are also expected to unseal criminal charges against Maduro and senior leaders from his government, the sources said.

To get a sense of the differences in how the press treated these two outbreaks of brand new viruses, let’s look at how the New York Times and CNN – the bellwethers of mainstream journalism in print and on TV – covered each at similar points in the outbreak.

The day after the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus a pandemic, and President Donald Trump gave a national address, CNN’s front page was almost entirely devoted to coronavirus.

On the newsstands, two-thirds of the New York Times’ front page was devoted entirely to coronavirus stories. Obviously, a new deadly disease that is spreading across the country is a big story, as is the WHO’s declaration that it’s now a pandemic…

174 House Dems: Convicted Terrorists Must Not Be Barred From Working For TSA – Robert Spencer

As old Joe Biden would say, Look, Fat, look, here’s the deal: I’ve been warning for years that it would sooner or later become “Islamophobic” to offer even the mildest opposition to jihad violence, and that the “Islamophobia” mongers would become increasingly open about their support for jihad terrorists, and here we are.

Leftist Insanity Update: New York Allows Minors To Change Sex On Birth Certificates – Big League Politics

Last month a transgender (biologically female) child sued the state of New York. The lawsuit was filed because the transgender child wished to change the sex listed on their birth certificate.

Up until this lawsuit, changing the sex designation on a minor’s birth certificate was not allowed under New York law. It was only allowed for adults.

The legal team of the transgender child argued that not being allowed to change the sex listed on one’s birth certificate to match one’s claimed gender identity was a violation of both the 1st and 14th amendments.

The transgender child won the lawsuit. It is now legal for a minor to change the sex listed on their birth certificate if they have parental approval.

Letitia James, Attorney General of the state of New York, agreed with the decision. James referred to the former law as, “an outdated policy to stop us from providing every individual with equal dignity and respect.”…

Coronavirus By the Numbers: 83% Of Affected Countries Have Infection Mortality Rates Of Less Than 1% – Gateway Pundit

According to the most recent data at Worldometer tracking website, the coronavirus mortality rates for individuals catching the virus are declining at a rate closer to the numbers we expect to see in a typical flu virus as the denominator continues to increase on a global scale.

According to the most recent data the mortality rate for those infected with the coronavirus is getting closer to what you would expect from a normal flu virus and in many cases is less.

The elderly are hit the hardest by the coronavirus and this is similar to the flu where 90% of the deaths come from individuals age 65 and over.

According to the U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams the average age of death of the coronavirus is 80-year-olds. The death rate for the coronavirus appears similar to the flu as the death rates are highest among the elderly:

Bernie Sanders Brings On Terrorist Supporter As Senior Adviser – Daniel Greenfield

On September 1970, terrorists from the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine hijacked four passenger planes headed for New York City. The Marxist terrorists separated Jewish passengers and took them hostage.

The hijackings ushered in the age of modern airline security with x-ray machines and armed sky marshals, and the War on Terror, when President Nixon ordered an attack on the terrorists.

(President Nixon’s order to bomb the terrorist encampments was never carried out due to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Defense Secretary Melvin Laird undermining his decision. “I didn’t have a big argument about it: I just didn’t do it,” Laird recalled. He then told Admiral Thomas Hinman Moorer, the head of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to lie that there was too much cloud cover to bomb the terrorists.)

ObamaCare: 10 Years Of Distress And Disappointment – Chris Talgo

March 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

Even worse, it has compounded many of the issues it was meant to fix – the law of unintended consequences in action.

First, then-candidate Barack Obama said his namesake act would “cut the cost of a typical family’s premiums by up to $2,500 a year.”

In reality, the opposite has occurred. According to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), “premiums have doubled for individual health insurance plans since 2013, the year before many of Obamacare’s regulations and mandates took effect.”

Even more shocking, HHS reports, “Average individual market premiums more than doubled from $2,784 per year in 2013 to $5,712 on Healthcare.gov in 2017-an increase of $2,928 or 105%.”…

Pentagon Sends Troops To Border Ahead Of SCOTUS ‘Remain In Mexico’ Decision – PJ Media

Also known as the “Migrant Protection Protocols” (MPP), the policy requires migrants asking for asylum to wait in Mexico for their court appearance. It’s been a vital tool for border security and the Pentagon fears that if the Supreme Court refuses to act, suspension of the MPP, which ends March 12, would mean tens of thousands of illegals and asylum-seekers who are in Mexico rushing the border.

Elizabeth Warren is suspending her presidential campaign after failing to secure a single statewide victory on Super Tuesday – and is withholding her endorsement.

“I will not be running for president in 2020,” Warren said during a press conference outside her home in Cambridge Thursday afternoon. “But I guarantee I will stay in the fight for hardworking folks across this country who got the short end of the stick over and over.”

Warren did not endorse either U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders or former Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday.

“Let’s take a deep breath and spend a little time on that,” she said, telling her supporters to do the same. “We don’t have to decide right this minute.”

The once-ascendant Massachusetts senator whose plans dominated the early months of the 2020 race exited the race Thursday after proving unable to translate her activist support into the votes…

Phone-Obsessed Idiot Drives New Car Off Bridge Into River While Fiddling With Handset – Daily Mail

A Chinese driver has crashed his new car into a river on his way to work while he was playing on his phone behind the wheel. The motorist veered off the course when he suddenly noticed pedestrians on the road, according to police.

The man escaped from the car by kicking open a door after it plunged into the waterway. He sustained a dislocated shoulder. The accident took place on the morning of February 21 in Meitan County, south-western China’s Guizhou Province, said local police.

The driver, named by local media as Mr Zhang, had just got a number plate for his vehicle 10 minutes before the crash. He told the police that he had bought the car second-hand for around 20,000 yuan (£2,239) before the start of the year.

He said: ‘I left for work at half past eight. I was looking for my phone and looking at it [while I was driving] and then saw two people in front of my car. ‘I turned the steering wheel sharply to avoid hitting them. And then I fell off (the bridge) like this.’…

Benjamin Netanyahu Defeats Benny Gantz With Striking 60-Seat Bloc – Jerusalem Post

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu succeeded in winning 60 seats for his bloc of right-wing and religious parties in Monday’s election, one less than he needed for a majority in the Knesset, according to exit polls on the three television networks.

The polls indicated that Netanyahu’s Likud won 36-37 seats. Its allies in Shas, UTJ and Yamina won 9, 7-8 and 6-7 respectively. The polls showed Blue and White with 33 seats, its ally Labor-Gesher-Meretz 6-7, the Joint List 14015 and Yisrael Beytenu 6-8.

The numbers are expected to change overnight. The votes of soldiers, who tend to lean to the right, have not yet been counted and the Joint List tends to go down a seat when the soldiers’ votes are added. But, if the Right does not obtain its 61st seat, it could end up being because the far-right Otzma Yehudit refused Netanyahu’s repeated requests to quit the race.

German Court Rejects Attempt To Enshrine Sharia Law – Zero Hedge

Germany’s Federal Constitutional Court has ruled that the constitutionally guaranteed religious freedoms of Muslims can be curtailed if public displays of religiosity – in this case wearing Islamic headscarves in German courtrooms – endanger the ideological and religious neutrality of the state.

The case involves a 38-year-old German-Moroccan law student who was born in Frankfurt and customarily wears a headscarf in public. In January 2017, she began legal training in the German state of Hesse, where the law bans any expression of religion in its courtrooms for judges, lawyers and legal trainees.

According to the law, legal trainees (rechtsreferendar) are allowed to wear a headscarf – except when they are performing certain official tasks in which they serve as representatives of the judiciary or the state.

Trump Team Yanking Green Cards From Immigrants Who Abuse U.S. Welfare System – Washington Times

Conservatives have been trying for decades to create an immigration system that rewards immigrants who won’t be a burden on society and discourages those who will.

The Trump administration this week began enforcing the “public charge” rule, giving U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services the authority to refuse green cards – the key step on the path to citizenship – to people who have used a wide range of nonemergency welfare programs.

“The main reason this got done is because we have a president who is determined enough to make self-sufficiency matter again in a meaningful way,” said Ken Cuccinelli, who pushed through the rule as acting chief of USCIS and is now acting deputy secretary at the Department of Homeland Security. “That kind of entrepreneurial mentality is a natural for him.”

U.S., Taliban Sign Deal Aimed At Ending War In Afghanistan – Breitbart

The United States signed a peace agreement with Taliban militants on Saturday aimed at bringing an end to 18 years of bloodshed in Afghanistan and allowing U.S. troops to return home from America’s longest war.

Under the agreement, the U.S. would draw its forces down to 8,600 from 13,000 in the next 3-4 months, with the remaining U.S. forces withdrawing in 14 months. The complete pullout, however, would depend on the Taliban meeting their commitments to prevent terrorism.

President George W. Bush ordered the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in response to the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Some U.S. troops currently serving there had not yet been born when the World Trade Center collapsed on that crisp, sunny morning that changed how Americans see the world.

Recall that at the end of January, a team of Indian scientists wrote in a now-retracted, scandalous paper claiming that the coronavirus may have been genetically engineered to incorporate parts of the HIV genome, writing “This uncanny similarity of novel inserts in the 2019- nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag is unlikely to be fortuitous in nature,” meaning – it was unlikely to have occurred naturally…

President Trump Puts VP Pence In Charge Of Coronavirus Response – Washington Examiner

President Trump put Vice President Mike Pence in charge of coordinating efforts to address the new strain of coronavirus, seeking to reassure the nation as cases of the disease mounted worldwide and U.S. stock markets suffered major losses.

“He has got a certain talent for this,” Trump said of Pence during a press briefing Wednesday.

“I’m bringing together all the members of the coronavirus tasks force that you have established … My role will be to bring that team together,” Pence told the president.

Trump reportedly had been considering bringing in someone from outside the administration to serve as a “coronavirus czar.” He clarified at Wednesday’s press conference that the vice president “isn’t a czar” but that officials would be reporting to him.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar had said earlier in the day that he didn’t expect any leadership changes. Appearing alongside Trump at the event, Azar said that he remained the head of the administration’s coronavirus task force…

Appeals Court Rules Trump Administration Can Withhold DOJ Grants To Sanctuary Cities – Epoch Times

A federal appeals court ruled on Wednesday that the Trump administration can withhold funding to states who do not assist with federal immigration policies, handing the Trump administration a victory in the sanctuary cities-related case.

A three-panel judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals of the 2nd Circuit overturned a lower court decision that ordered the Justice Department (DOJ) to release the funds held under department policy. The lower court ruled the department lacked the authority to impose several immigration-related conditions on a federal grant program, known as the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (or the Byrne JAG).

The Byrne JAG grant program, administered by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), was created to provide states and local government funding to support a number of initiatives including law enforcement, prosecution, and court, prevention and education, and other related areas.

In the fiscal year of 2018, there was $269 million available under the program…

Black Racist Punches White Person At Bus Stop Because She Hates ‘White People’ – Big League Politics

A black woman punched a stranger outside of an Oregon bus last month because she hates “white people,” according to court documents.

The court documents indicate Nimo Jire Kalinle, a black 42-year-old woman, started punching Janae Jordan in the face repeatedly after leaving a bus at a stop in North Portland. Jordan was reportedly waiting with her young daughter and husband when she was targeted with the vicious, racially-motivated attack.

“It’s because you’re white and I hate white people,” Kalinle allegedly said to Jordan when the victim asked why she was being attacked without provocation, according to a probable cause affidavit.

The victim’s husband was forced to intervene and protect his wife from being targeted with this vicious act of racial hate until law enforcement officials arrived. Jordan claims she had never met Kalinle before the alleged attack took place so there can be no motive other than anti-white hatred…

Facebook Sued For $9 Billion By Internal Revenue Service After Shifting Profits For Ireland – Big League Politics
