Trump's latest possible quid pro quo involves New York, airport travel, and his tax returns

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) visited President Trump on Thursday afternoon to try and negotiate the reversal of his administration's new ban on New Yorkers participating in the Global Entry and "trusted traveler" programs, which ease border crossings and airport security lines for enrolled travelers. Cuomo had low hopes, and they were met. The governor's office and acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said talks will continue. Before the meeting, Trump floated what appeared to be an offer he hoped New York couldn't refuse. Cuomo "must understand that National Security far exceeds politics," he tweeted, an apparent reference to the administration's purported rationale for blocking New Yorkers from the programs. "New York must stop all of its unnecessary lawsuits & harrassment [sic]." New York Attorney General Letitia James — who won a $2 million settlement from Trump over his canceled family charity and is suing him and his business on multiple fronts, including for his financial records — clapped back.…

Trump has already tweeted about Barr's interview complaining about his tweets

President Trump has a message for Attorney General William Barr: I will never log off. Barr in a rare rebuke of Trump on Thursday criticized the president's tweets about Department of Justice cases in an interview with ABC News, begging him to knock them off because they're making his job difficult. "I think it's time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases," Barr said in the interview, saying tweets like these from the president "make it impossible for me to do my job." This came amid an ongoing controversy over the Department of Justice reversing its sentencing recommendation for longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone after Trump angrily tweeted about it. So what was Trump's response to Barr begging him to stop it with the DOJ-related tweets? Another DOJ-related tweet, of course. Trump on Friday quoted a different part of the interview in which Barr said Trump has "never asked me to do anything in a criminal case," with Trump claiming this is true but only because he has "chosen not to"…

Weinstein is an 'abusive rapist' who saw himself as 'master of his universe,' prosecutor says in closing argument

Harvey Weinstein, an "abusive rapist," saw his alleged victims as "ants who he could step on" but ultimately "underestimated" them, lead prosecutor Joan Illuzzi told jurors Friday as his rape trial nears its end. After the defense in Weinstein's trial rested its case earlier this week and made its closing argument Thursday, Illuzzi on Friday began to wrap the prosecution's case, saying the disgraced producer saw himself as "the master of his universe, and the witnesses here were really ants who he could step on without consequences," per The Hollywood Reporter. Weinstein is facing sexual assault and rape charges stemming from the allegations of two women, one of whom alleges he forcibly performed oral sex on her in 2006 and one of whom alleges he raped her in 2013. Four additional accusers testified in the trial. Weinstein's defense has argued the encounters were consensual and throughout the trial has pointed to witnesses maintaining contact with Weinstein. But Illuzzi in her closing argument said Weinstein…

China's Hubei province enacts 'wartime' measures as coronavirus count rises to 16,427

Coronavirus is continuing to spread throughout China and especially in the epicenter Hubei province, the World Health Organization said in a Friday update briefing on COVID-19. There are 47,505 laboratory-confirmed cases of COVID-19 throughout China with 1,381 deaths reported from the pneumonia-like illness it causes, including 121 deaths reported in the past day. Six of those who died were health care workers — "a critical piece of information" as WHO continues to investigate why even rigorous medical guidelines haven't stopped the spread, WHO reported Friday. A total of 1,716 health care workers in China have contracted COVID-19 despite WHO's guidelines, so this weekend, a team of 12 international and WHO experts will arrive in China to meet with local medical professionals for a "joint mission." The experts will particularly look at disease transmission and response measures to see how processes for health care workers, who "are working with virtually no sleep in difficult conditions," can be improved, WHO…

Coronavirus cases surge for 2nd day after China revises diagnosis criteria

China on Friday confirmed another 5,090 coronavirus infections, and 121 more deaths, bringing the death toll near 1,400, according to The Associated Press. The country has seen a surge in new cases for the last two days since health authorities in Hubei province, the epicenter of the outbreak, changed the way they identify infections, with most of the new cases based on a physician's diagnosis before lab results come back. The surge in confirmed cases has dampened hope that the spread of the flu-like virus was slowing, but health experts say the higher numbers are partly due to the new methodology. "I suspect but can't be certain that the underlying trend is still downwards," said Paul Hunter, a professor of health protection at the University of East Anglia in England. Harold Maass

Trump now says he did send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine. CNN analysts think Trump forgot his earlier lie.

President Trump told Fox News friend Geraldo Rivera on Thursday that he did send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to procure damaging information on his political rivals. "Was it strange to send Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine, your personal lawyer?" Rivera asked Trump on his podcast. "Are you sorry you did that?" "No, not at all," Trump responded. "When you tell me, why did I use Rudy, and one of the things about Rudy, No. 1, he was the best prosecutor, you know, one of the best prosecutors, and the best mayor." "That is literally the exact opposite of what he told Bill O'Reilly in an interview in November," CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale told Don Lemon on Thursday night, playing the clip where Trump said, "No, I didn't direct him," meaning Giuliani. "So what has changed now? Well, perhaps Trump just thinks impeachment's over with, I've been acquitted, I can say whatever I want. Perhaps he forgot that he ever denied this. Regardless, though, what he's saying now is the truth. He did direct Rudy to go there. We heard that not…

Mumps cases soar to highest number in a decade

There were 5,042 recorded cases of mumps in England in 2019 – four times the number in 2018 and the highest level in a decade. Many of these cases were as a result of outbreaks in universities and colleges and most were in young adults who did not have the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) jab. A large number of the 2019 cases were people born in the late 1990s and early 2000s who missed out on the MMR vaccine when they were children. In 1998, doctor Andrew Wakefield led a study that linked the MMR vaccine to autism. His work was subsequently discredited and he was struck off, but uptake of the vaccine dropped to about 80% in the late 1990s and a low of 79% in 2003.

Five months out, Japan's Olympics organisers say 'no plan B' amid coronavirus fears

Organisers for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics say they have no contingency plans for cancelling the event, despite rising fears of a coronavirus outbeak in neighbouring China. Officials said plans for the Summer Olympics to open on July 24 remained "on track", despite jolts from the virus which has infected almost 64,000 globally and killed more than 1,400, mostly in China. “The advice we’re received externally from the WHO (World Health Organisation) is that there’s no case for any contingency plans or cancelling the Games or moving the Games,” said John Coates, the head of an International Olympic Committee inspection team. Japan reported its first coronavirus death on Thursday, and is carrying out checks on passengers of a quarantined cruise ship, Diamond Princess, after the virus was found onboard earlier in February.

Angry Brexiteer destroyed on Twitter after complaining about long queue at EU airport

A Brexit Leave voter has been annihilated on Twitter after complaining about his long wait in the immigration queue at the airport. The UK officially left the EU at the end of last month which means that a British traveller will have to take the 'Other nationalities' border check queue when travelling to EU countries -- which can be a much lengthier process. And it seems some Brexit voters didn't take this consideration into account when they voted on June 23, 2016 -- including a Twitter user who had decided to take a trip to Amsterdam.

I used to work for a guy that bought me dinner all the time, he and his wife liked to watch me eat. It wasn't one of those weird things, I did it fully clothed. One of the foods he bought me was ham hocks, lima beans, and cornbread. I could slam down 3/4 of a pot of that stuff, good and hot with chili's and a few pitchers of brew. Now, of course, those pitchers would be water but then I was still drinking. I have been thinking about lima beans and ham hocks so much I could almost taste it until yesterday when I was walking through thy blessed MILPAS UNDERPANTS and saw a huge pile of Lima Beans and bits of Ham splattered on the sidewalk in front of a camp. Now I cannot get that odor out of my nose and I almost added to it. I think I will stay on this side of my MILPAS UNDERPANTS a while. I just thought I'd share…
