Biden Camp Responds to Staffer’s Bombshell, Brutal Rape Allegation by Asking Media to Go After Accuser (VIDEO)

By WND. Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign is strongly denying allegations he sexually assaulted a former female staffer — and is asking the media to “rigorously vet” his accuser.

This week, Tara Reade, a staff assistant for Biden when he was in the Senate, accused the presumptive Democratic nominee of sexually assaulting her while the two were alone in 1993. . .

“Women have a right to tell their story, and reporters have an obligation to rigorously vet those claims,” Biden campaign manager and communications director Kate Bedingfield told Fox News.

“We encourage them to do so, because these accusations are false,” Bedingfield said.

After the allegation went public this week, Twitter users unearthed a video of Biden explaining why women have a difficult time reporting cases of rape and sexual assault.

“Joe Biden, Rapist”

By Donald Dixon. Joe Biden has been credibly accused of rape.

The allegation comes from Tara Reade, a former member of Biden’s Senate staff. Reade unveiled last year that she was a victim of Biden’s sexual harassment in the early 1990’s, however, she declined to provide further detail due to the attacks she sustained as a result of telling a part of her story. Conspiracy theorists were even conjuring up fake stories about Reade being a Russian asset.

More recently, Reade decided that it was time for her to tell the full story. She sought the assistance of Time’s Up, a #MeToo organization that provides support for sexual assault victims, however, they declined to represent her because her accusation was against a federal candidate for office, thus allegedly threatening their non-profit status. Of course, not only does this excuse hold no merit, but it seems like an obvious attempt to protect Biden. After all, Anita Dunn, one of Biden’s campaign advisers, is also involved with Time’s Up as the managing director of SKDKnickerbocker, the organization’s public relations firm.

Shortly after The Intercept unveiled these details, Reade appeared on Katie Halper’s podcast, and then, later, The Hill’s Rising with Krystal and Saagar, to describe, in scathing detail, the accusation that she was pressed against a wall and sexually penetrated by the politician. Biden went on to kiss her before asking to “go somewhere else”. After refusing his advances, Biden said, “Come on, man. I heard you liked me,” before telling her that she was “nothing” to him.

WATCH: Massive Protest Breaks out in China’s Hubei Province, Ground Zero for the Coronavirus

By Breitbart. A huge protest march swept out of China’s Hubei province on Friday, with thousands of angry residents pouring across a bridge into neighboring Jiangxi province and clashing with police. . .

The Hubei residents streaming across the bridge are clearly angry after weeks of the coronavirus lockdown, which in theory is being lifted as the Chinese government claims infections in Hubei have dropped to zero. Evidently the protesters are infuriated by how the government has treated them during the crisis – infuriated enough to flip over police cars and swarm past riot control barriers.

According to the “Things China Doesn’t Want You to Know” Twitter account quoted above, there are rumors the riot was kicked off by a fight between Hubei and Jiangxi police officers. The Hubei police were reportedly angered by Jiangxi police crossing into their jurisdiction.

China Reports 54 New Cases, Says All of Them Are ‘Imported’

By CNBC. China’s National Health Commission reported 54 new cases of infection, all of which were “imported” as residents returned from abroad. Three new deaths were announced and all of them occurred in Hubei, where the coronavirus was first reported. . .

Altogether, China says it has had 81,394 confirmed cases thus far; among them, close to 75,000 patients have recovered and 3,295 died. Data from Johns Hopkins University showed both the United States and Italy have overtaken China in terms of the number of reported cases.

This State Is Not Putting up With Gun Shops Being Closed

By The Blaze. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a letter warning city and county officials that they did not have the authority to shut down gun shops in Texas over the coronavirus pandemic. . .

Paxton outlined the Texas law that governed the power of local governments over firearms sales in his letter and came to a stern conclusion.

“Thus, although section 418.108 of the Government Code may generally allow municipal and county officials to ‘control the movement of persons and the occupancy of premises’ in a local disaster area, notwithstanding that general authority, emergency orders from local officials may not relate to the transfer, possession, ownership or sale of firearms,” he wrote.

Paxton goes on to assert that local authorities do have the right to regulate use of firearms, but that does not extend to the sale or transfer of firearms. (Read more from “This State Is Not Putting up With Gun Shops Being Closed” HERE)

Guns and Ammo Sales, Pistol Permit Applications Soar in NC Amid Coronavirus Anxiety

By The News Observer. Just after 10 a.m. Tuesday more than 100 people were either inside or lining up outside Perry’s Gun Shop in Wendell, the store’s owner said.

Nearly half were in the store, where owner Berry Perry said he was trying to enforce social distancing.

“I am trying to limit the number of people in the store to recognize the six-foot safety limit,” he said.

The gun store, which is selling hundreds of firearms a day, is one of many across the Triangle and the nation seeing business surge as new and existing gun owners clear shelves of guns and ammunition amid the uncertainty of the novel coronavirus’ impact on the community and supply chains.

WATCH: A Half-Sedated Looking Joe Biden Devolves Into Incoherence on the View; Biden’s Claim He ‘Became a Professor’ After Leaving Senate Sparks Confusion

By Red State. . .After days of people wondering exactly where the former VP has been, Biden decided to appear before some friendly faces on The View today. He was interviewed remotely from what I’m assuming is his home, as it’s the same background he’s had for the last several videos he’s made. Apparently, all the rest he’s been getting the last few weeks has done nothing to sharpen Biden’s mental faculties, as he ended up devolving into incoherence rather quickly.

Wait, what? Yeah, I’m not going to even attempt to translate that. I have no idea what Biden is attempting to say there.

It got worse, though. Biden then started incessantly touching his face, even licking his fingers, at a time when everyone is being told to not do either of those things for the safety of everyone around them.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2020 Democrat nominee. Well, for now at least. (Read more from “A Half-Sedated Looking Joe Biden Devolves Into Incoherence on the View” HERE)

Biden’s Claim He ‘Became a Professor’ After Leaving Senate Sparks Confusion

By Fox News. Former Vice President Joe Biden appeared to have made some factual errors during a virtual roundtable on Wednesday regarding this claim that he “became a professor” after leaving the Senate.

During an online campaign event, Biden took questions from young people and while discussing the student debt crisis, Biden spoke about all the time he had spent on “campus.”

“When I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania,” Biden said. “And I’ve spent a lot of time — and the University of Delaware has the Biden School as well, so I’ve spent a lot of time on campus with college students.”

Biden, quite notably, became vice president of the United States under President Obama when he left the Senate in 2009. It was, however, in 2017 when he received the title of “Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice Professor” from the University of Pennsylvania.

Man Violates Coronavirus Lockdown, Gets Eaten by Crocodile

Across the U.S., various cities and states are on lockdown orders. Local governments are taking it seriously — the mayor of Los Angeles has even said that power and water will be shut off for “nonessential” businesses that refuse to close. . .

But there’s something worse than seemingly over-eager law enforcement for at least some folks who chose to violate governmental lockdown commands: crocodiles. . .

As cases of COVID-19 in the eastern African country of Rwanda climbed, authorities there implemented a “total lockdown” Sunday, the BBC reported. So far, Rwanda has at least 40 confirmed cases.

The government has reportedly said it would help people struggling under the order, but that has apparently done little for the many poor citizens who were negatively impacted almost immediately.

On Wednesday morning, an unidentified man breached the lockdown to go fishing along the Nyabarongo River, according to the BBC. While he was out at the river, he was killed and eaten by a crocodile. (Read more from “Man Violates Coronavirus Lockdown, Gets Eaten by Crocodile” HERE)

Editor’s note: Let this be a lesson to everyone who thinks the stay-at-home orders are a joke. Actually, you probably have more risk of dying in a car accident after leaving your home than dying from the virus (whose origins shall not be named). So yes, shouldn’t we thank our governing officials for saving lives?

Costco Just Told Hoarders What They Can Do With All Their Excess Toilet Paper

For days and days it looked like Black Friday at Costco. Or, as the Instagram account “CostcoBuys” put it, “Panic at the Costco.” . . .

Customers lined up around stores to buy things they most certainly did not want to run out of in the case they’d be under quarantine for days on end.

And the rolled gold was increasing in value in the eyes of the hoarders. As a joke, this toilet paper roll was put in the fine jewelry section of Costco with a $200 price tag. . .

So it’s come to this 😂

A post shared by Costco Buys (@costcobuys) on

But now Costco has made an announcement. All of the toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer, wipes, Lysol, water bottles, and rice hoarded by people by the cart and truck full will not be taken back. Signs in the store read (in all caps), “RETURNS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED ON TOILET PAPER, PAPER TOWELS, SANITIZING WIPES, WATER, RICE, LYSOL.”

LARGEST IN HISTORY: President, Congress Agree on $2 Trillion Coronavirus Emergency Relief Bill

By Breitbart. President Donald Trump and Congress reached a deal on the terms for a $2 trillion emergency relief bill to address the economic impact of the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, early in the morning on Wednesday.

Politico reported:

Lawmakers and the Trump administration reached an agreement on a nearly $2 trillion coronavirus emergency rescue package, a move intended to assist businesses and millions of Americans amid an unprecedented halt in the economy.

The announcement caps five days of tense negotiations between senators and the White House. Both the Senate and House still need to approve the bill before sending it to President Donald Trump for his signature.

The president had sounded an optimistic tone in his briefing for reporters at the White House on Tuesday evening, though Republicans had been scathing in their criticism of Democrats for blocking Senate passage of a relief bill that had been agreed to by the two parties on Sunday.

White House and Senate Reach Deal on $2 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Package

By Axios. The White House and Republican and Democratic Senate leaders struck a bipartisan deal early Wednesday over a $2 trillion stimulus package designed to ease the economic impact of the novel coronavirus, per AP.

Details: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tweeted soon after the deal was reached, “At last, we have a deal. After days of intense discussions, the Senate has reached a bipartisan agreement on a historic relief package for this pandemic. We’re going to pass this legislation later today.”

White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland, told reporters just before 1 a.m. a deal had been reached but the bill’s text had yet to be completed, the New York Times reports.

“We have either, clear, explicit legislative text reflecting all parties or we know exactly where we’re going to land on legislative text as we continue to finish,” he added.

. . .Per Axios’ Alayna Treene, the emergency legislation will deliver desperately needed aid to American families, small businesses and corporations hit hardest by the virus. (Read more from “White House and Senate Reach Deal on $2 Trillion Coronavirus Relief Package” HERE)

What’s in the Emergency Relief Bill?

The stimulus bill — by far the largest ever proposed — comes with a price tag equivalent to 9% of the nation’s gross domestic product and is meant to provide direct financial aid to help individuals, hospitals and businesses. It includes $300 billion for small businesses, $150 billion for local and state governments and $130 billion for hospitals, according to those involved in the negotiations. . .

The amounts of the one-time payments, which officials hope could go out to Americans as soon as early April, will be based on income reported in 2018 taxes, declining gradually beginning with individuals who made $75,000 or married couples filed jointly who made $150,000. Individuals making $99,000 or above or married couples making $198,000 or more would receive no check. People would also receive an additional $500 per child.

Schumer said negotiators agreed to put “unemployment insurance on steroids” by expanding those covered to include people who are furloughed, gig workers and freelancers, and by increasing the payments by $600 dollars per week for four months on top of what states provide as a base unemployment compensation.

Doctor: I Treated 350 Coronavirus Patients With 100% Success (VIDEO); Cuba Uses ‘Wonder Drug’ to Fight Coronavirus Around World Despite U.S. Sanctions; New York Hospitals Treating Coronavirus Patients With Vitamin C

By WND. A physician in New York state claims he has used the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine and zinc to treat 350 patients for COVID-19 with 100 percent success.

In a video posted on YouTube, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko said he saw the symptom of shortness of breath resolved within four to six hours, the Gateway Pundit blog reported.

Zelenko, addressing his message to President Trump, said he’s a board-certified family practioner in the community of Kiryas Joel in Orange County, New York, in the Hudson Valley, about 50 miles north of New York City.

“I’m seeing a tremendous outbreak in this community,” he said. “My estimate is more than 60% currently have the infection.

“That’s based on the percentage of the tests that I’m getting back already,” Zelenko explained. “That’s probably around 20,000 people, probably more.” (Read more from “Doctor: I Treated 350 Coronavirus Patients With 100% Success (VIDEO)” HERE)

Cuba Uses ‘Wonder Drug’ to Fight Coronavirus Around World Despite U.S. Sanctions

By Newsweek. Cuba has mobilized its medical corps around the world to distribute a new “wonder drug” that officials there say is capable of treating the new coronavirus despite the United States’ strict sanctions that continue to pressure the communist-run island.

The drug, called Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant (IFNrec), is jointly developed by scientists from Cuba and China, where the coronavirus COVID-19 disease outbreak first emerged late last year. Already active in China since January, the Cuban Medical Brigades began deploying to dozens of nations, providing personnel and products such as its new anti-viral drug to battle the disease that has exceeded 400,000 confirmed cases across the globe. As of Tuesday, over 100,000 people have recovered from the infection and more than 18,000 have died.

Cuba first used advanced interferon techniques to treat dengue fever in the 1980s and later found success in using it to combat HIV, human papillomavirus, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and other diseases. The use of Interferon Alpha-2B Recombinant “prevents aggravation and complications in patients reaching that stage that ultimately can result in death,” Cuban biotech expert Luis Herrera Martinez said, according to a recent Yale University Press Blog feature written by the University of Glasgow’s Helen Yaffe. She called the treatment a potential “wonder drug” against the new coronavirus. (Read more from “Cuba Uses ‘Wonder Drug’ to Fight Coronavirus Around World Despite U.S. Sanctions” HERE)

New York Hospitals Treating Coronavirus Patients With Vitamin C

By New York Post. Seriously sick coronavirus patients in New York state’s largest hospital system are being given massive doses of vitamin C — based on promising reports that it’s helped people in hard-hit China, The Post has learned.

Dr. Andrew G. Weber, a pulmonologist and critical-care specialist affiliated with two Northwell Health facilities on Long Island, said his intensive-care patients with the coronavirus immediately receive 1,500 milligrams of intravenous vitamin C.

Identical amounts of the powerful antioxidant are then re-administered three or four times a day, he said.

Each dose is more than 16 times the National Institutes of Health’s daily recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C, which is just 90 milligrams for adult men and 75 milligrams for adult women.

The regimen is based on experimental treatments administered to people with the coronavirus in Shanghai, China, Weber said. (Read more from “New York Hospitals Treating Coronavirus Patients With Vitamin C” HERE)

President Trump Announces a General Timeframe for Re-Opening American Businesses; Health Officials Want Trump to ‘Double Down, Not Lighten up’ Restrictions

By Townhall. Speaking from the White House Monday evening, President Donald Trump announced America will be “open for business very soon” as the country continues to battle the Wuhan coronavirus.

“America will again and soon be open for business. Very soon, a lot sooner than three or four months as someone was suggesting. We’re not going to let the cure be worse than the problem itself. We’re not going to let the cure be worse than the problem,” Trump said. “This was a medical problem, we are not going to let it turn into a long lasting financial problem.” . . .

The tension between medical decisions and a cratering economy are increasing by the day as millions lose their jobs. President Trump urged Americans to continue the 15-day “stop the spread” plan, which includes social distancing and hygiene efforts.

“I want Americans to know that we will get through this challenge. The hardship will end, it will end soon, normal life will return and our economy will rebound very very strongly but right now in the midst of this great national trial, Americans must remain united in purpose and focused on victory,” Trump said. “To every single American please know that the sacrifice you are making at this time is saving lives.” (Read more from “President Trump Announces a General Timeframe for Re-Opening American Businesses” HERE)

Health Officials Want Trump to ‘Double Down, Not Lighten up’ Restrictions

By Politico. Rattled health officials are trying to fight off ascendant voices around Donald Trump pressing the president to restart the economy as soon as Monday to stem severe business and job losses.

The prospect of resuming typical business so soon has horrified these public health leaders, who see the debate as premature amid a crisis that the administration is just beginning to wrangle, according to eight people with knowledge of the administration’s discussions about its coronavirus guidelines.

Health experts are contending the fallout will be worse if the White House declares victory now, only to have the virus resurface weeks or months from now. The government, they argue, has yet to definitively answer key questions that would dictate how to reactivate the economy: Do those who recover from coronavirus become immune? How do underlying health conditions affect the severity of the virus? And, most important, how widely has it spread?

Others have stressed the political risks facing Trump and his reelection campaign if the outbreak worsens significantly, warning that it would be catastrophic if the virus made a comeback closer to the November election — especially after Trump declared himself a “wartime” president and assured the public that his administration was in control.

When the Hunter Gets Hunted: Video of Fight Between Mongoose and Cobra Has Netizens Hooked

While many would dither in fighting a venomous cobra, the mongoose is not one of them. In fact, mongooses are known to be fearless slayers of snakes, especially cobras and now a video has now gone viral on social media showing an encounter between them. In the video, a mongoose can be seen approaching a cobra in an attempt to devour the reptile.

The 1.02-minute clip was tweeted by Indian Forest Officer Susanta Nanda along with a caption that read, “Animals trying to kill a snake is akin to suicide, but mongoose has tricks of their own. Residing for millions of years alongside them, they have adopted to its venom. Agility, thick coats and glycoprotein production makes it immune to venom. Thick jaws bring cobra down in seconds.”
