    Uh Oh!
    Trump ally Tom Barrack charged with acting as an agent of a foreign government
    Tom Barrack, a former adviser to former President Donald Trump, was charged Tuesday with illegal foreign lobbying on behalf of the United Arab Emirates for what federal prosecutors in Brooklyn described as an effort to influence the foreign policy positions of both the 2016 Trump presidential campaign and the subsequent incoming administration. Barrack is charged in a seven-count indictment with acting as an agent of the UAE between April 2016 and April 2018. He is also charged with obstruction of justice and making false statements to federal law enforcement agents. According to the indictment, Barrack and two other men charged Tuesday — Matthew Grimes of Aspen, Colorado, and Rashid Sultan Rashid Al Malik Alshahhi, a UAE national — capitalized on Barrack’s status as a senior outside adviser to the Trump campaign to “advance the interests of and provide intelligence to the UAE while simultaneously failing to notify the Attorney General that their actions were taken at the direction of senior UAE officials.”

    The head of the Tokyo 2020 organising committee has not ruled out a cancellation of the Olympic Games.

    Toshiro Muto said he would keep an eye on infection numbers and hold “discussions” if necessary.

    More than 70 people associated with the Games have tested positive ahead of Friday’s opening ceremony.

    His comments came on the same day International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach said cancellation was “never an option”.

    Earlier this month, Japan announced the Games would go ahead in empty venues without spectators – despite growing concern over the Covid situation.

    Fox has undermined vaccination efforts
    in nearly 60% of all vaccination segments in a 2-week period

    “Fox News has relentlessly undermined the effort to get Americans vaccinated against the COVID-19 disease.
    “From June 28 through July 11, 57% of segments about coronavirus vaccines on the network included claims that undermined vaccination efforts.

    “Amid a push from the Biden administration and medical officials to increase vaccination rates,
    Fox News has repeatedly fearmongered about and downplayed the need for continued vaccination campaigns. Fox News’ dismissal of vaccine efforts is particularly dangerous as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations have surged in unvaccinated red states, with polling showing conservative and Republican voters — who count Fox as their most trusted news source — are less likely to get vaccinated. Further, The Salt Lake City Tribune reported that Gov. Spencer Cox (R-UT) blamed right-wing media anti-vaccination “propaganda” for the state’s low immunization rates. The paper quoted Cox as describing the “recent push by Fox News, Newsmax, and other right-wing media against the vaccine” as “reckless.”

    “Over a two-week period, from June 28 through July 11, Fox News aired 129 segments about coronavirus vaccines. Of those, 57% included claims that either undermined or downplayed immunization efforts.

    Forty-five percent of segments included claims suggesting that the vaccination drive is coercive or that it represents government overreach.

    Thirty-seven percent of segments included claims suggesting that vaccines are unnecessary or dangerous.
    Fox & Friends, including its early morning and weekend iterations, aired the most vaccine segments during this period, with more than half (52%) featuring claims undermining or downplaying immunization.

    All of Fox’s weekday evening opinion shows with vaccine segments — Fox News Primetime, Tucker Carlson

    Tonight, Hannity, and The Ingraham Angle — included claims undermining or downplaying coronavirus vaccines in those segments.

    Fox personalities and guests made a total of 216 claims undermining or downplaying vaccines in segments about coronavirus immunization.

    Pundits in vaccine segments made 151 claims undermining or downplaying vaccines, representing 70% of the total attacks on vaccination efforts. Fox hosts Brian Kilmeade and Laura Ingraham made the most such claims with 22 and 18 statements, respectively.

    Over the two-week study period, Media Matters identified 129 coronavirus vaccine segments on Fox. Out of those, 57% of segments included claims that undermined or downplayed vaccines or immunization efforts.

    In 58 segments, or 45%, Fox described immunization efforts as coercive or government overreach, or framed them with a false dichotomy of “personal choice” against “medical freedom.” Personalities and guests on the network argued against vaccination or highlighted extremely rare medical complications in 48 segments, or 37% of the total.

    The network’s opinion programming aired 80 coronavirus vaccine segments, 69% of which included claims undermining or downplaying vaccines or immunization efforts. Its “news”-side programming aired 49 segments about vaccines, with 39% of those including claims undermining or downplaying vaccines or immunization efforts.

    The show with the most vaccine misinformation was the network’s flagship morning program, Fox & Friends. Including its early morning and weekend counterparts, Fox & Friends aired 44 vaccine segments, 52% of which included claims undermining or downplaying vaccines or immunization efforts. Co-host Brian Kilmeade summed up the program’s resistance to vaccination efforts when he described the Biden administration’s campaign to get more Americans vaccinated as “mind boggling.”

    Notably, Fox’s weekday evening opinion shows — Fox News Primetime, Tucker Carlson Tonight, Hannity, and The Ingraham Angle — promoted claims undermining and downplaying immunization in all of their coronavirus vaccine segments. The Ingraham Angle in particular did so in 15 segments over the two-week period, with both the host and her guests undermining vaccination rates.

    In total, Fox personalities and guests made 216 claims undermining or downplaying vaccines or immunization drives. Out of those, 151 claims came from pundits on the network, which represented 70% of the total. Fox pundits described vaccine efforts as coercive or government overreach 103 times and described vaccines as unnecessary or dangerous 75 times.

    Fox hosts Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends and Laura Ingraham of The Ingraham Angle were the network’s worst offenders. Kilmeade made 22 claims downplaying or undermining vaccines or immunization, and Ingraham made 18 such claims. Other top offenders were hosts Tucker Carlson (11), Rachel Campos-Duffy (11), Pete Hegseth (11), Ainsley Earhardt (11), and Will Cain (10).

    Much of the network’s outrage spawned from misleading coverage of a “door-to-door” vaccination campaign from the Biden administration, which host Jeanine Pirro described as a campaign to ultimately take away Americans’ guns, and reaction to comments from Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra, which one contributor likened to medical practices of “the Taliban.”

    Fox’s attacks on the vaccination effort are just the latest example of the network undermining public health efforts. And Fox’s hard turn against vaccines is particularly dangerous as vaccination rates in the United States have stalled or slowed — at publication, fully vaccinated Americans still represent less than half of the total population.

    As with its coverage of other public health measures designed to slow the spread of coronavirus, Fox is again leading the charge to discredit accepted science with misinformation and fearmongering.”

      “We categorized claims into two broad categories:

      Vaccines are unnecessary or dangerous.
      Immunization efforts are coercive, represent government overreach, or violate personal freedom or choice.
      For the first category, we coded claims meeting any of the following criteria:

      Suggesting that vaccination is not necessary for persons with prior infections or persons who are at low risk of serious illness or complications due to COVID-19.
      Highlighting rare complications as a result of vaccination to suggest that certain cohorts should not be vaccinated.
      Suggesting that the vast majority of Americans do not need to be vaccinated.
      Suggesting that the pandemic is over, and therefore, vaccinations are unnecessary or superfluous.
      Suggesting that risk of complications from vaccination outweigh protections from vaccination.
      For the second category, we coded claims meeting any of the following criteria:

      Characterizing vaccination efforts as coercion or highlighting personal choice over public health or emphasizing “medical freedom.”
      Suggesting that parents’ rights should be prioritized over vaccination.
      Suggesting that vaccination efforts are akin to fearmongering.
      Suggesting that reimposing health measures would undermine health expert credibility — and thus, vaccination efforts — or confidence in the vaccines.
      Suggesting that health officials cannot be trusted on coronavirus and, thus, cannot be trusted when recommending vaccines.”

    • July 21, 2021 at 12:00 pm


      Fox hosts NOW claiming oh of course THEY are vaccinated — but it’s your choice no worries.
      Um one obvious example: Children don’t have a vaccine yet and “your choice” might have consequences.

      = Fox and trump the People Killers must pay.

    ‘Racism Kills’:
    Chris Hayes On Biz Markie And The Life Expectancy Gap
    “Black men get considerable less years on the planet than white men. When you are asked what structural racism means, that’s what it means.”

    • July 21, 2021 at 1:40 pm

      “Biz Markie died last Friday after a decade-long battle with type two diabetes. He was 57.
      Back in April, hip hop musicians, legends, DMX, Black Rob, and Shock G all died within the span of a few weeks, and they were 50, 52, and 57 respectively.
      Last October, one of my all-time favorite rappers MF DOOM died at the age of 49.
      Now you can say that well, musicians die too young all the time.
      And that’s true.
      Or that the rapper lifecycle burns out quick.
      But this is also about disparities that have long been documented.
      Earlier this year, the American Medical Association noted the country’s pervasive health inequities were evidenced by a tragic tally of more than 74,000 excess deaths on average among Black people,
      compared with white people each year between 2016 and 2018. It’s even more stark when you look at just Black men as all of these rappers were.

      The average life expectancy for a white male in this country is about 75 years old.
      The average life expectancy for a Black male is about 68 years old.
      That’s a seven year difference.

      When we talk about structural racism in critical race theory the big bugaboo right now, that’s what we’re talking about.
      It is worth noting that Black men get considerable less years on the planet than white men.
      When you’re asked what structural racism means,
      that’s what it means.
      It means a society that takes years off people’s lives. The only thing we have.
      Because of a million different things that have built up over hundreds of years,
      produced a system where Black people are more exposed to violence,
      and more exposed to toxins,
      and more exposed to health risks,
      and face more barriers for health treatment,
      and on and on and on.
      This is not some abstraction. It’s not some question of hurt feelings.
      It is literally life and death.
      Racism kills. It takes lives too early every damn day.

      Biz Markie like so many others of his generation died at a tragically young age.
      And like others, left behind a rich legacy that perhaps were largely under-appreciated until it was too late. But Biz and others deserve more.
      They all deserve more.
      At its core that is what the fight for equality and against racism is all about.”

    Rosa Maria Paya, founder, Cuba Decide, speaks with Joy Reid:

    “The Cuban military have been actually cracking down on protesters with brutal repression.
    But the people understand. We as a nation, we understand that to get out of the deep crisis that we are facing,
    we need to get out of the dictator.
    We need to end their dictatorship.
    And in the middle of the sanitary crisis, in the middle of the public crisis, in the middle of the health crisis, that people are just fed up and went to the streets, demanding what is the root of all the crises.
    Which is the Castro’s dictatorship.
    So the call to the international community is still the same:
    “Please listen to the people asking for freedom and support that demand.””

    “What can the Biden administration do to support the Cuban people?”
    “Well the Biden administration has today the big opportunity of accompanying the Cuban people in their quest for freedom. And actually achieving together with the Cuban people the freedom after 62 years of dictatorship.
    For instance, the U.S. should apply individual targeted sanctions against the repressors,
    against the ones that are ordering the military to shut down young people in the streets.
    And there are many companies, many enterprises still doing business with that criminal regime.
    The Biden administration should take a similar approach to the approach taken towards South Africa, to end apartheid. And put responsibility on those companies and apply… principles.
    The U.S. has the capacity to provide Cubans with Internet access, with satellite, Internet access.
    Which means it’s going to bypass the interference and the censorship of the dictatorship, that by the way cut Internet success when the protests started.”

    “So we are asking capacity to be enabled for the Cuban people.
    But also this Administration has the ability to be leaders in that regard, world leaders in the defense of democracy, the defense of human rights.
    So we hope that the Biden Administration invites the European Union to take similar steps, Invites the member states of the OAS to take similar steps.
    This is a big challenge to all the democracies of the world, but it’s also a big opportunity here to finally see a free Cuba. And with a free Cuba, more stability and peace in our hemisphere.”

    “It is remarkable to see it happening. I`m glad that you mentioned South Africa. Joe Biden was actually one of the most vocal senators at that time against the South African apartheid regime. And also has been pushing for freedom in Russia as well.”

      “this is a party that is sympathizing with the cop killers.
      They are voting against Capitol Police funding, they are voting against awarding the gold medal to the Capitol Police officers, They continue to say that the police, like the FBI, are responsible for what happened. And now today they’re walking away from the Police and this investigation. So we can’t wait for them. Our country can’t wait for them. This investigation must move on.”
