European Socialists don't expect the same level of freedoms as many American's do yet somehow they are in the midst's of an equally severe surge in covid infections.

actually, wolfpack, adjusted for population, Europe is doing worse than the US. The current US stats, false positives and all, have plateaued and are trending down.

Just imagine if they would include the age groups of the deceased (as well as their co-morbidities) as is always done with the new "testée-positives". That would provide a bit of context, wouldn't it?

Exactly, Hervé. We all know its in the low 80's, as it is all over the world. But making that info available would cost clicks, so no news on that, unfortunately.

We live in the middle of the worst journalistic standards in the history of the profession. Its just a rung or two above thieves who steal from orphanages.

If theres one thing that just enrages a Euro, its the sight of Americans enjoying the freedoms they gave up long ago.

The pure hatred the usual suspects have for anything American is matched only by their incredible stupidity in assuming all 50 million travelers voted for Orange Man Bad.

If anyone here here under the illusion this will end with Qantas and we won't need proof of vaccination to travel, go to the theater, any sporting event, enter a restaurant etc is quite naive. And just marvel at the posters here who cheered on certain politicians who are putting this new normal into place now suddenly sit up and realize what they're in for.

Listen very carefully and you can hear the sound of brand new conservatives being born!

Who are we and you to believe? Trump who says the election was fraudulent and "stolen", or his team of lawyers who say in court;

Giuliani: "This is not a fraud case"...

His Attorney in Pennsylvania: "There is no evidence of any fraud"...

His Attorney in Arizona: "We are not alleging fraud or anyone stealing the election"...

Please tell us....

Lots of Trump supporters posting here - none will answer this question...

Hmmmmm.....

Hi Lincolnman -let me answer that question with a question of my own. Why are the lawsuits still ongoing and what do you know about the next 48 hour news cycle that the rest of us don't?

In terms of polling, more people trust Biden with the economy than Trump. Conservatives will scoff at that because of the stereotype they have hammered into their brains, but it's a verifiable statistic. Despite that, my guess is that the stereotype is just too strong for actual data to overcome the bias in your mind.

Nope. Wrong again. Lets take a look at the unemployment rate and GDP performances over the last 12 years..

https://www.thebalance.com/unemployment-rate-by-year-3305506

See those numbers that went way up between 2008-2016, then way down from 2016? Thats called the unemployment rate.

See those numbers that were near zero most years from 2008-2016 then exploded from 2016? Thats called GDP.

And no. Voters did not trust Biden over Trump on the economy.

 In the four years that trump did nothing but destroy America ~ in so many ways, as dictators did in history,

4 years of the greatest economy in modern history which, at its worst during Covid. was still stronger than anything Obama/Biden could conjure.

Unprecedented peace in the Middle East with no new wars for the first time in decades.

Prison reform which released Black men incarcerated for minor drug offenses. Biden had spent a career putting those same Black Americans IN jail. He calls them "Super Predators"

The cognitive dissonance within the left in truly stunning.

There are a lot of low-information people out there who are avoiding the truth of what's happening in the U.S. right now who may be in for quite a surprise they will not be prepared for.

per Rasmussen Reports;

"BREAKING: Look who is now in charge of PA, WI, MI, and GA

Circuit Courts have been re-assigned

Effective November 20th, 2020, ordered persuant to Title 28, United States Code, Section 42

MI - Brett M. Kavanaugh

WI - Amy Coney Barrett

PA - Samual A. Alito

GA - Clarence Thomas"

I think certain publications have an obligation to keep their readers up to speed on what's happening. Curating the news based on personal agendas goes against the most basic journalistic codes and ethics.

What nanny state? 

Japan government is actively trying to promote activities to spread the virus. 

You have countries which are actively controlling the spread, countries which are doing nothing, then you have Japan which is actively promoting spread. 

If they are doing nothing no one would be complaining. The national government is actively trying to increase the number of infections by encouraging and subsidizing mass gatherings, indoor activities, and any activities which would increase spread. Notice how the national government is still actively pushing for end of year parties.

I've been staring at this meltdown for 10 minutes.....

Posted in: London mayor targets racial discrimination in city's police See in context

Black Londoners are more than three times as likely to be stopped and searched by police, official data shows,

interesting. Why would that be?

Lets Wiki, shall we...

Figures from the Office for National Statistics showed that in 2007 an estimated 10.6 percent of London's population of 7,556,900 were black.[25] Evidence shows that the black population in London boroughs increases with the level of deprivation, and that the level of crime also increases with deprivation, such that "It is clear that ethnicity, deprivation, victimisation and offending are closely and intricately inter-related".[26]

In June 2010, through a Freedom of Information Act request, The Sunday Telegraph obtained statistics on accusations of crime broken down by race from the Metropolitan Police Service.[n 2] The figures showed that the majority of males who were accused of violent crimes in 2009–2010 were black. Of the recorded 18,091 such accusations against males, 54 percent accused of street crimes were black; for robbery, 58 percent; and for gun crimes, 67 percent.[27] Robbery, drug use, and gang violence have been associated with black people since the 1960s.[28] In the 1980s and 1990s, the police associated robbery with black people. In 1995, the Metropolitan Police commissioner Paul Condon said that the majority of robberies in London were committed by black people.[29]

Street crimes include muggings, assault with intent to rob, and snatching property. Black males accounted for 29 percent of the male victims of gun crime and 24 percent of the male victims of knife crime.[27]

Operation Trident was set up in March 1998 by the Metropolitan Police to investigate gun crime in London's black community after black-on-black shootings in Lambeth and Brent.[30]

Between April 2005 and January 2006, figures from the Metropolitan Police Service showed that black people accounted for 46 percent of car-crime arrests generated by automatic number plate recognition cameras.[3

Oh. I see. The police are stopping and searching the people most likely to be committing crime.

Thats racist.

Election officials in Georgia stated the hand recount process will be completed by next week.

In a news conference on Thursday, officials said they received numerous reports of voting irregularities that may have swayed the election. They stressed Joe Biden is currently leading President Trump by only 14,000 votes and stated that instances of fraud are possible.

Georgia officials also rejected Democrat accusations of political bias behind their decision to recount.

“Let me be perfectly clear on this,” Voting System Implementation Manager Gabriel Sterling said. “If it was 14,000 votes the other way, we would be doing the exact same thing.”

The recount in Georgia is widely expected to give President Trump 16 electoral votes as well as expose a rampant Democrat effort to manipulate the vote.

“We want to make sure this is a fair and transparent election,” Rep. Vernon Jones (D-Ga.) said. “More importantly, this is not just for Republicans but for Democrats as well.”

The Democrats have gone from "there was no illegal voting" to "Yes, there was illegal voting but its not widespread" to the present "the illegal voting is not systemic!!"

The walls are closing in....

Maybe if people had taken them seriously and actually enforced them the first time around, we wouldn’t be in this situation, would we? But I suppose it was more convenient to pretend the fairy-frog princess or whoever would just come along and magic the virus away with a wave of her wand the moment some red-state twits decided to reopen their states early. And here we are. It’s almost as if they should’ve listened to the experts the first time around.

If the US is doing so horrible, why are European nations doing even worse than the US when you adjust for population?

Hillary Clinton's former Chief of Staff gives Trump's court challenge a 20% chance of success.

My guess is its quite larger than that. All the powers that be are insisting this was the "fairest" election in history - yet they are fighting tooth and nail against any investigations.

SCOTUS will have the final say.

another frivolous article not based on any science, just personal anecdotes.

Where are the surveys asking male journalists how often they've felt "abused" online?

When a full two-thirds of internet users are male accounting for almost 80% of total time online - thats a pretty big omission.

exactly, currently at 77million with 6.6million still to be counted, over 5 million votes more than Trump and thats expected to grow, get this many of the states in the vote didnt even have 5 million votes total!

Its astonishing that at this point there are still some out there who are not aware that the US President is not elected by popular vote. The US has an electoral college where the only vote count that matters is in swing states. The difference here is razor-thin.

PS Is this a coup d'État?

Its an attempted coup d'Etat (the second attempt on President Trump)

But now its watch and wait as the evidence piles up and the SCOTUS renders its verdict.

Not saying which way they will come down, but important to note Al Gore was declared President-elect for 36 days in 2000.
