In its latest attempt to tar US President Donald Trump’s event at Mt. Rushmore, CNN framed the iconic monument as a homage to slavery, despite previously dubbing it a salute to “four great presidents.”
CNN correspondent Leyla Santiago took to the airwaves on Friday to report on the president’s rally to mark Independence Day at the memorial later in the evening, putting heavy emphasis on its links to slavery and abuses of Native Americans while implying the site was chosen for those reasons.
“Kicking off the Independence Day weekend, President Trump will be at Mt. Rushmore, where he’ll be standing in front of a monument of two slave holders and on land wrestled away from Native Americans,” she said, noting Trump would focus on what he called “the effort to tear down our country’s history.”

Much of the case for the Iraq War was based on the Bush administration’s claim that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. When the United States declared an end to the war late in 2011, more than 4,400 American military members had been killed and nearly 32,000 wounded. No weapons of mass destruction had been found.
It’s one of the most significant and catastrophic intelligence errors in U.S. history. A bipartisan commission found that U.S. intelligence “seriously misjudged” Iraq’s weapons program because of their “heavy reliance on a human source–codenamed ‘Curveball’–whose information later proved to be unreliable.” The commission wrote, “Even more misleading was the river of intelligence that flowed from the CIA to top policymakers over long periods of time–in the President’s Daily Brief (PDB)” and other reports that were “more alarmist” and “less nuanced.”
Kremlin, Trump, Taliban Refute NYT Report Claiming Russia Paid Islamic Group to Kill US Soldiers
Some Americans are calling for a new national anthem amid the nationwide trend of removing monuments, statues and other symbols that have ties to slavery.
Francis Scott Key wrote the poem “Defence of Fort M’Henry” on September 14, 1814 when he saw the US flag flying over the fort at dawn’s early light, according to the Smithsonian Institute,
This poem later served as the lyrics for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” which became the official national anthem of the US in 1931.
However, citizens are now asking for a new national anthem because of Key’s ties to slavery.
The Smithsonian reports that Key was a slave owner and defended slave owners’ rights to own human property.
The New York Times’ allegation that Russia has been offering reward money to Taliban-linked militants in Afghanistan to kill US and coalition troops has been attacked from all sides, with Moscow, the Trump administration and the Taliban itself saying that the claims aren’t true.
There is no general agreement among US intelligence agencies about the veracity of claims made in the New York Times about Russian military intelligence offering reward money to encourage the killing of US troops in Afghanistan, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany has announced.
“There is no consensus within the intelligence community on these allegations and, in effect, there are dissenting opinions from some in the intelligence community with regard to the veracity of what’s being reported, and the veracity of the underlying allegations continue to be evaluated,” McEnany said, speaking to reporters on Monday.

On Friday, The New York Times ran an article claiming that Trump had received an intelligence report suggesting that Russia solicited the attack on US soldiers in Afghanistan by paying a bounty to the Taliban.
US President Donald Trump has lambasted the story by the New York Times suggesting that he was informed about Russia’s purported involvement in an attack on US troops in Afghanistan. In a tweet, the president stressed that no one in his administration had ever received such reports.
Soon after Trump’s response to the claims presented in the article, US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told ABC that the president’s reaction indicates that he wants to “ignore any allegation against Russia”.
The story, released by The New York Times on Friday, claims that Russia paid armed Islamic insurgents from the Taliban to attack US soldiers in Afghanistan. The newspaper reported citing an unidentified source that the US president was aware of the development but failed to take action.
Fear of COVID-19 absolutely crippled the U.S. economy during the first half of this year, and now it appears that there are some people that are pushing for that to happen again during the second half of 2020.
Earlier this evening, I came across a headline that boldly declared that there will be “180,000 U.S. deaths of COVID-19 by October”, and right now just about every mainstream news outlet is running stories about how the number of confirmed cases in the U.S. is surging.
And it is definitely true that we are seeing an alarming rise in the number of confirmed cases.
In fact, the number of new cases in the U.S. on Wednesday set a new record…

The UK Labour Party left Twitter users baffled after it appeared to celebrate Fathers Day using an image of a black child and a transgender father, leading some to be confused and think that the image was in fact reinforcing the stereotype of absent black fathers.
“The coronavirus crisis has reminded us just how important connecting with our loved ones is. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads and carers out there. #HappyFathersDay,” tweeted Labour’s official account.
However, the image used to illustrate the message featured a cartoon “father” who looked more like a woman.
“That dad looks like he’s going for a bra fitting for himself,” remarked one respondent.
Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy urged white Christians to take the opportunity to repent for racism following weeks of Black Lives Matter protests.
Discussing race relations with Passion City Church program “The Beloved Community” on Monday, Cathy said white people are “oblivious” to the racism towards blacks.
“Most of us, white people, we’re out-of-sight-out-of-mind oblivious to it,” Cathy told the church’s founder Louie Guglio and black Christian rapper Lecrae. “We cannot let this moment pass.”
