How U.S.’s Response to Covid-19 Could Precipitate 2nd Great Depression

Libertarian countries rely on developing “herd immunity” to the disease, in preference to imposing social distancing and…

America’s design causes it to fail the coronavirus-19 challenge.

Eric Zuesse, originally posted at Strategic Culture America isn’t the only country which is so corrupt as to stand at or near the top of the global coronavirus-infection rankings, but, as the June 2020 issue of The Atlantic headlines, “We Are Living in a Failed State: The coronavirus didn’t break America.

Tucker Carlson: ‘Amazing Act of Magic’ for Media to Transform Immigration into ‘Fake Civil...

Various news media outlets deceptively frame the issue of immigration — both legal and illegal — as a “fake civil rights issue,” said Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson, host of the eponymous TV program Tucker Carlson Tonight, in a Tuesday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.
