Stephen Miller Latest White House Official To Test Positive For COVID-19

Stephen Miller Latest White House Official To Test Positive For COVID-19

Tyler Durden

Tue, 10/06/2020 – 19:56

Angry lefties are taking to social media to express their glee over the news that Stephen Miller, a senior aide to President Trump widely seen as the architect of his immigration policy (known to liberals as “kids in cages”), has become the latest White House staffer to test positive with COVID-19.

By our count, that makes him the 33rd person infected in the White House outbreak by our count, which includes 11 staffers who tested positive after the debate in Cleveland. According to NBC News, the number stands at 23.

The applause from the left rolled in on Twitter.

Miller has released a statement to the press: “I have been working remotely and self-isolating, testing negative every day through yesterday. Today, I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine.” His plans regarding the length of his quarantine aren’t clear. According to the New York Daily News, it was “not immediately clear” whether Miller attended the Sept. 26 ceremony announcing Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination.

Miller has been working from home since Friday.

It also appears that the military aide who tested positive – reported earlier today – is among those responsible for carrying the “football” that contains launch codes for nuclear weapons has also tested positive, a person familiar with the matter said.

Trump aide Stephen Miller tests positive for Covid-19, and Resistance rejoices

President Donald Trump’s adviser Stephen Miller has tested positive for the coronavirus – prompting celebrations from Democrats who have blamed him for the current US immigration policy.

Miller has been working remotely and tested negative for the past five days, but turned up a positive test on Tuesday and was quarantined, multiple outlets reported citing a senior White House official.

The news triggered an outpouring of vitriol on social media last seen in May, when Miller’s wife Katie – an aide to Vice President Mike Pence – tested positive for the virus.

“There is a god,” tweeted the Gravel Institute, which describes itself as the left’s answer to Prager University.

Musician Mikel Jollett tweeted sympathy for the “families of the 26,000 innocent children” that Miller “threw in a cage.”

Former DNC staffer and activist Adam Parkhomenko accused Miller – who is Jewish – of being a member of the KKK.

Resistance Twitter star Eric Garland, of “game theory” Russiagate fame, laughed that there was “some form of organic matter not completely repelled by Stephen Miller.

Less famous online liberals also chimed in, calling Miller subhuman or posting memes depicting him as a bat or a vampire.

Miller may be the one member of the Trump administration more hated by the Resistance than the president himself. In one instance, he defended immigration restrictions by telling CNN’s Jim Acosta that the poem on the Statue of Liberty isn’t the law of the land. 

Resistance Democrats similarly celebrated Trump’s positive test last week, only to fume in frustration when Trump seemed to beat the virus and was discharged from the Walter Reed National Medical Center after only three days. 

One exception was Jennifer Rubin, the Washington Post “conservative” columnist, who tweeted “There are times when it is best to saying [sic] nothing” in response to news about Miller, after having a full-on meltdown over Trump.

Biden Says "We Shouldn't Have Debate" Next Week If Trump Still Has Coronavirus

Biden Says “We Shouldn’t Have Debate” Next Week If Trump Still Has Coronavirus

Tyler Durden

Tue, 10/06/2020 – 19:54

Will there be another debate or won’t there?

While Trump is certainly eager to get back on the podium, and certainly not in some virtual setting, his challenger is not so sure.

Moments after the NYT published an Editorial Board op-ed arguing that “In-Person Debates Are Too Dangerous. Cancel Them”, Joe Biden spoke at a campaign stop in Pennsylvania, Joe Biden said Tuesday night that he and Donald Trump should scrap their next debate if the president is still infected with the coronavirus.

“I think if he still has Covid we shouldn’t have a debate,” Biden told reporters.

The next debate is scheduled for next Thursday, Oct. 15 in Miami. Which likely means that Trump will have to demonstrate beyond a reasonable doubt that neither he, nor anyone on his debate prep team is contagious in just over a week. Considering that most of those people are, in fact, infected as of this moment, that could prove a tall order, and may force the next debate to be virtual.

Which simply means just as much shouting, only by zoom… unless of course the two agree to a mute button.

WATCH: Uber Driver Bashes Trump To His Passengers, What Happens Next Is Truly Incredible (VIDEO)

Two American tourists in Switzerland stood up for themselves to an Uber driver who assumed that these two Black American women hated President Donald Trump.

The woman questioned the driver, “How can you even speak about Trump as a president, when your own country at Nigeria is wack? And what I’m not understanding is you have to migrate just to live and have some money and have a decent economy. You had to migrate all the way to America. Now you saying Switzerland, but then you want to talk about my president. Don’t talk about my president. Worry about yourself. Y’all. I hope you’re helping your people back home. I hope you don’t just leave them high and dry because Nigeria’s doing real bad. You could never speak on my President.”

She continued, “You can’t. That’s the problem with these foreigners. We’ve come here to find the guy y’all hear the fake news in, the first thing I want to do is insult Americans as if we listen. We don’t listen. We Americans love our president. Maybe y’all don’t see that. Maybe y’all don’t like him, but who gives a damn? He ain’t y’all president. He’s my president. And you said you’re an American. If you don’t like America. You’re in Switzerland, stay in Switzerland. Stay in Switzerland.”

The Uber driver asked her, “Please put back your mask on. Put back your mask on now.”

The woman continued, “You know what.”

“I said out back your mask on!!” the driver said again.

“We leaving. Now pull us over. We leaving. Where is the-? Where’s the thing at? I don’t know who he’s yelling at. This guy talking about effer of the-,” she continued.

The driver continued back, “Put your back you mask on!”

“I think your effing-, your effing. What did he say? Your effing president, disrespectful, cursing talking about how much he don’t like our president or something like that. Get out of here. This dude is so unprofessional,” the woman stated as soon getting out of the car.

The driver claimed he was from Nigeria and moved to Switzerland after getting backlash from American passengers he claimed he was a United States citizen.

As the woman leaves the car, “We getting out of his Uber. Talking about our president, look at this guy. Look at this guy. This is a straight loser right here. This guy, he says he’s an American citizen. Somebody find out who he is and where he lives at so you guys could expose the treason. High treason. Talk junk about our president, but yeah you in Switzerland. Please, we don’t want to be in your filthy cab.”

She continued, “No, no, don’t worry about us. Go back to Nigeria. Go back to Africa! Where your country is trash. Your country’s trash. Go help your people in Africa.”

The woman then discusses what happened, “We get in an Uber right? And while we’re in Uber, now mind you we in Switzerland right now. We here for a day and then we go back. We get in an Uber, right? And so the guy in the Uber’s like, oh, so what you, yo, yo, your eff’ed up president. He was talking about the no-”

The other woman cuts her off, “Sorry. Sorry. You’ve got to give that, you’ve got to get that detail.”

She then continued, “When are you gonna give me a second to get it?”

The Uber driver allegedly described how Trump ‘Fu*ked up’ America but these two American women were not having it.

Her friend continued on what happened, “We asked him where he was from originally. He said Nigeria. We said, OK. Then in the middle of nowhere, no warning, nothing. He said, your Trump, you’ve done eff’ed up your country. Out of nowhere. Nowhere. No respect. Nothing. We didn’t talk about Trump. We didn’t talk about America. We didn’t talk about anything.”

The woman continued, “Now, mind you, this dude is from Nigeria. He’s not even from-. He’s from Africa. And now he’s living in Switzerland. He’s an immigrant in Switzerland, but they will say, oh, I’m an American, too. I’m an American, too. First of all, he’s lying like hell. Second of all, if you are actually an American and you don’t like America that much, then why don’t you just go see to…simply renounce your citizenship in America, take your butt back to Switzerland and stay in Switzerland.”

Nadal passes Sinner test to storm into French Open semi-finals

October 6, 2020

PARIS (Reuters) – Claycourt master Rafa Nadal passed his first real test of this year’s French Open with a 7-6(4) 6-4 6-1 victory against Italian rising star Jannik Sinner as his quest for a record-breaking 13th title gathered momentum on Tuesday.

The Spaniard, also looking to match Roger Federer’s record of 20 Grand Slam men’s singles titles, was stretched like rarely before by the 19-year-old Sinner as he set up a clash with Argentine Diego Schwartzman, who beat him in the Italian Open quarter-finals last month.

The 34-year-old Nadal’s 97 previous victories at Roland Garros made the difference in the key moments with the Spaniard rallying from a break down in the first two sets.

Sinner, the first French Open debutant to reach the last eight since Nadal in 2005, confirmed his immense potential but lacked just a bit of composure when it mattered.

Taiwan Presents Weapons Shopping List To US At Key Defense Industry Conference

Taiwan Presents Weapons Shopping List To US At Key Defense Industry Conference

Tyler Durden

Tue, 10/06/2020 – 19:45

Taiwan is set to present a veritable weapons shopping list to American officials during the annual US-Taiwan Defense Industry Conference, which began Monday and is continuing Tuesday.

The conference is yet another event attracting the ire and watchful scrutiny of China, given it is representative of the growing military cooperation between Taipei and Washington, and goes back to 2002.

However, weapons sales will be a closed-door discussion issue. Among closed-door topics include “US defense cooperation with Taiwan, the defense procurement process and Taiwan’s defence and national security needs,” the council said according to South China Morning Post. It will also “provide opportunities to connect with others working on Taiwan defense and national security issues.”

Also sure to catch Beijing’s notice following last month’s ratcheting PLA aerial and sea drills around the island is the following statement on the conference agenda: “Taiwan’s deputy defense minister Chang Guan-chung is expected to brief the US side on the weaponry most needed and urgently sought by the island after seeing growing military intimidation from Beijing.”

Ahead of the conference Reuters pointed out last month the US is content to further build up ‘Fortress Taiwan’ while “needling China” – as it “plans to sell as many as seven major weapons systems, including mines, cruise missiles and drones to Taiwan, four people familiar with the discussions said, as the Trump administration ramps up pressure on China.”

That prior extensive report previewed Taiwan’s ‘defense needs’ – some of which are in various phases of passing US legal hurdles and discussions, according to Reuters :

  • Drones that can see over the horizon for surveillance and targeting, coupled with advanced missiles and coastal defenses that include smart mines and anti-submarine capabilities to impede a sea invasion…
  • A Lockheed Martin-made High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), essentially a truck-based rocket launcher, is among the weapons Taiwan wants, people familiar with the negotiations said.
  • at least four large sophisticated aerial drones to Taiwan for what could be about $600 million.
  • under discussion are land-based Boeing-made Harpoon anti-ship missiles to serve as a coastal defense against cruise missiles.
  • Other systems include “underwater sea mines and other capabilities to deter amphibious landing, or immediate attack,” Taiwan’s de facto ambassador here to United States said in July.

Anti-tank missile systems are also said to be under consideration, at a moment Chinese PLA naval and aerial drills near the island have been on the uptick. Beijing has repeatedly signaled that it considers reunification as a landmark mission and won’t stand idly by as external forces intervene in what it sees as inter-China affairs.

For this week’s US-Taiwan Defense Industry Conference, no US official will need to visit the island given the talks are being done entirely by remote means due to the global pandemic.
