Dangerous Chinese Counterfeit Goods Are Pouring Into America, Here's How We Stop It


“Over the course of 14 monthly ‘blitz operations,’ a decidedly unlucky 13% of the Made-in-China packages inspected have contained a type of counterfeit product or other contraband that can defraud, harm, or even kill Americans,” write Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan and Assistant to the President Peter Navarro in Fox Business.

“On a daily basis, nearly 90,000 Americans are being assaulted in one form or another through small parcel mail by unscrupulous Made-in-China exporters.”

The Department of Justice introduced draft legislation to Congress yesterday aimed at curtailing Big Tech’s liability shields. “Currently, online platforms have been able to weaponize government protections initially implemented to encourage stripping down obscene content to selectively censor unwelcome narratives, i.e., conservative viewpoints,” Tristan Justice reports in The Federalist.
“In an effort to prevent potential COVID-19 outbreaks in high-risk communities, the Trump administration said it has started shipping rapid coronavirus tests to more than three dozen historically Black colleges and universities . . . Each school is expected to receive between 3,000 and 10,000 tests initially, and they will be resupplied ‘as often as they need,’” Francesca Chambers and Grace Asiegbu report for McClatchyDC.

BREAKING: President Trump just unveiled his America First Healthcare Plan

BREAKING: President Trump just unveiled his America First Healthcare Plan


President Trump traveled to Charlotte, North Carolina, this afternoon where he just unveiled his America First Healthcare Plan.

“We will ensure the highest standard of care anywhere in the world: cutting-edge treatments, state-of-the-art medicine, groundbreaking cures, and true health security for you and your loved ones,” the President said.

🎬 President Trump: Better care at a lower cost with more choice!

The America First plan has three goals: more choice, lower costs, and better care. It includes protections for pre-existing conditions, measures to stop surprise medical bills, and rules to guarantee price transparency so patients aren’t left completely in the dark.

The result is that Americans will have more control over their own healthcare dollars rather than ceding power to Washington politicians or powerful corporations.

Unlike socialized medicine, President Trump’s plan puts working families first with:
  • MORE CHOICE: Patients will be in charge of their care, not bureaucrats at some faraway Federal agency. When President Trump took office, more than half of U.S. counties offered plans from only a single insurance provider on the individual market. As of next month, more than 90 percent of American counties will have multiple options to choose from.
     
  • LOWER COSTS: For years, patients have been shocked to receive unexpected bills for thousands of dollars in medical services they never even agreed to. President Trump’s plan bans this deeply unfair practice and ends surprise medical billing. “The days of ripping off American patients are over,” he said.
     
  • BETTER CARE: With new ways for Medicare to pay providers, Americans will have access to doctors they trust—whenever they are needed. President Trump is also making sure that politicians don’t get in the way of much-needed research and innovation, ensuring Americans access to the best health care in the world.

President Trump’s plan puts American patients first. Unfortunately, under pressure from the far left, Democrats have endorsed healthcare legislation that would result in rationing care, keeping patients on waitlists, and driving the best doctors away from practicing medicine.

“The Democrat Party is pushing a socialist nightmare,” President Trump said.

Americans want real choice, affordability, and quality in their medical care. They don’t want radical politicians playing games with their health and safety to get votes.

Under this President, America’s families and seniors will always be protected.

SOME PARTING WORDS
Sean Hannity, on Thursday's edition of "Hannity," reported that text messages and notes from FBI agents revealed they were openly worrying about former FBI Director James Comey’s “Operation Crossfire” investigation into the 2016 Trump campaign. After the election, Hannity continued, the FBI agents appeared so worried about the partisan, conspiratorial nature of what they had done, they “purchased professional liability insurance.”

Public support dropping for racial justice protests, poll suggests
A new poll shows support for protests like those engulfing Louisville, Ky., following a grand jury decision in the Breonna Taylor case has fallen from a peak reached soon after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody in May.
The survey by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds 44% of Americans disapprove of protests in response to police violence against Black Americans, while 39% approve. In June, 54% approved of the protests.
The survey was conducted before Wednesday’s announcement that a former Louisville police officer would be charged in the Taylor case, though not directly for her death.
Floyd's death had also sparked a renewed focus on the shooting that killed Taylor during a drug raid on the night of March 13.

The poll also found that 35% of White Americans approve of the protests now, while 50% disapprove. Just three months ago, 53% of White Americans approved of the protests while 34% disapproved.

Among Latinos, 31% approve, compared with 44% in June; 63% of Black Americans support the protests, down from 81%, with more now saying they neither approve nor disapprove. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

DOJ orders Pennsylvania county to change ballot practices after 'troubling' findings | Fox News

Justice Dept. orders Pennsylvania county to change ballot practices after 'troubling' findings
The Justice Department sent a letter to Luzerne County in Pennsylvania on Thursday, ordering it to change its practices after multiple military ballots supporting President Trump were found discarded.
The issue surfaced earlier in the day when Justice announced it had recovered a small number of discarded ballots. While the department would not say where it had found the ballots, it did say there were nine recovered -- seven of which were cast for President Trump, while the other two were sealed by Luzerne County before the FBI recovered them,
In his letter to county officials, U.S. Attorney David Freed indicated additional ballot materials were found in a dumpster. Freed said the investigation yielded "troubling" findings, including that the county allegedly improperly opened ballots.

"Even though your staff has made some attempts to reconstitute certain of the improperly opened ballots, there is no guarantee that any of these votes will be counted in the general election. In addition, our investigation has revealed that all or nearly all envelopes received in the elections office were opened as a matter of course," Freed's letter read.
"It was explained to investigators the envelopes used for official overseas, military, absentee and mail-in ballot requests are so similar, that the staff believed that adhering to the protocol of preserving envelopes unopened would cause them to miss such ballot requests. Our interviews further revealed that this issue was a problem in the primary election -- therefore a known issue -- and that the problem has not been corrected," he added.
"While the assigned investigators are continuing their work including reviewing additional discarded materials, it is imperative that the issues identified be corrected." CLICK HERE FOR MORE.

Source of Steele dossier was investigated by FBI for Russian contacts, Barr says | Fox News

Source of Steele dossier was investigated by FBI for Russian contacts, Barr says | Fox News

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here's what you need to know as you start your day ...

Barr says primary ‘source’ of anti-Trump dossier faced FBI probe for possible Russia ties

The primary "source" of the anti-Trump Steele dossier was the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 for suspected contact with Russian intelligence officers, Fox News has learned.
Attorney General Bill Barr penned a letter to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Thursday, responding to requests as part of the panel's review into the origins of the Russia probe.
"In connection with your Committee's investigation of these matters and ongoing hearings, you have been asking us to accelerate this process and to provide any additional information relating to the reliability of the work of Christopher Steele and the so-called 'Steele dossier,' as long as its release would not compromise U.S. Attorney John Durham's ongoing criminal investigation," Barr wrote.
"A footnote in the Inspector General's report contains information, which up till now has been classified and redacted, bearing on the reliability of the Steele dossier," Barr wrote. "The FBI has declassified the relevant portion of the footnote, number 334, which states that 'the Primary Sub-source was the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers.'"
Barr added that at his request, the FBI has prepared a declassified summary of certain information from the counterintelligence investigation into the source, which he has shared with the committee. CLICK HERE FOR MORE ON OUR TOP STORY.
