[NYPOST] Three 15-year-old boys in Florida are reportedly in jug after inadvertently trespassing on Mar-a-Lago property while carrying an AK-47 as they tried to flee the police.
The bizarre scene unfolded Friday around midnight when Palm Beach police noticed the teenagers parked in a Hyundai on a road about two miles from President Trump’s club, the Palm Beach Police Department told the local NBC affiliate.
When police approached the vehicle, the driver took off, initiating a short car chase, according to the report.
The teens eventually ditched their vehicle near Mar-a-Lago and allegedly carried a backpack containing the rifle as they fled onto the property.
Club security found the bag containing the rifle and a 14-round magazine on a seawall, police said.
The boys were later detained on the property. When a cop asked the group about the rifle, one of them allegedly told the officer he "found it."
All three face charges of armed trespassing, armed burglary, and resisting arrest without violence.
[Cleveland.com] After an earlier rapid coronavirus test returned a positive result for Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, a second coronavirus test for DeWine, Ohio First Lady Fran DeWine and members of his staff all have come back negative, the governor's office announced Thursday night.
The second round of testing was performed through a more sensitive test called a polymerase chain reaction, or PCR test, which detects genetic material from the new coronavirus, the governor's office said. The earlier test, administered as DeWine traveled to greet President Donald Trump in Cleveland, delivers fast results by testing for the presence of antigens in the body, but is a relatively unproven technology and is viewed as less accurate.
"We feel confident in the PCR results from Wexner Medical Center," DeWine's office said in a statement, referring to the Columbus hospital where the second test was performed. "This is the same PCR test that has been used over 1.6 million times in Ohio by hospitals and labs all over the state."...
Wanna bet his first positive result will still be counted in "new cases"?

the Rapid tests have about a 30% false rate (positives, 10% negatives) according to some places on the interwebz. So big grain of salt. But PCR is a fairly reliable way of doing it so I'd believe a PCR test.

In the initial article, I wondered why Meng had resigned out of the blue and effective immediately. It turns out that just three days earlier, on August 2, Yves Smith at the Naked Capitalism blog posted a stunning, well-sourced exposé detailing Meng’s false filings on required financial disclosure forms, blatant self-dealing, and close ties to the highest levels of the Chinese Communist Party government.
It seems to me that the guard should have no authority to shoo anyone away from the sidewalk. It's not private property, it's public. There may be an argument if the person taking the video were interfering with people doing their job.
[DAILYTIMES.PK] Nine people have died and dozens were maimed after 10 gas explosions destroyed homes in North Korea ...hereditary Communist monarchy distinguished by its truculence and periodic acts of violence. Distinguishing features include Songun (Army First) policy, which involves feeding the army before anyone but the Dear Leadership, and Juche, which is Kim Jong Il's personal interpretation of Marxism-Leninism, which he told everybody was brilliant. In 1950 the industrialized North invaded agrarian South Korea. Twenty-one countries of the United Nations eventually contributed to the UN force opposing the invasion, with the United States providing around 90% of the military personnel. Seventy years later the economic results are in and it doesn't look good for Juche... . A gas cylinder ignited after a leak in Hyesan on Monday evening, according to reports.
The explosion set off the gas cylinders attached to the nearby homes. It’s thought that there were 10 explosions in total.
Six people were killed instantly while around 30 people suffered from varying degrees of burns. They were taken to a local hospital, where three reportedly died this morning.
In a similar incident, the official Iraqi news agency reported about a fire in a food and electrical warehouse in Najaf Ashraf and announced that firefighters are trying to contain it.
Sources revealed that the food and electrical storages of "Al-Quds" in the south of the province caught fire. Al-Quds? WTF?

[JPost] - The majority of Americans believe that state governments are lifting coronavirus restrictions and lockdowns "too quickly," according to a PEW Research survey.
The national survey was conducted between July 27 and August 2, and included the responses of 11,001 United States residents, where 69% of the sample say that "their greater concern is that state governments have been lifting restrictions on public activity too quickly."
They found 7000 people who purposefully watch CNN.
It would be interesting what their real iewer eyeball #s are if you exclude the poor bastards trapped in airport lounes

That is bad.
Worse, trapped at home with someone who has the tele tuned to CNN and loud enough to hear across the house.
Me, had to do an intervention. I'd leave in the morning and wife would have on one of the big three. Back in the evening, one of the big three would be on. So about the second week of duck & cover, "Honey, whatever this is and may be, you must understand these shows are trying to scare you so you don't change the channel. Listen to what they are saying, they just keep saying the same thing over and over. Like the Haunted House Guy with Fake Chainsaw Gag - it gets you the first time and make the trip memorable. Think that guy puts in a 6 hour shift doing only that, it isn't as scary. Keep going through the Haunted House and that guy is in the same place, doing the same gag, every time. They get you frazzled, they get you hooked."
[IndependentSentinal] Manufacturing in the USA is measured by a key business activity gauge. And it has soared to a 15-month high in July. This exceeded all expectations.
The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) business survey, published on Monday, shows that its topline manufacturing activity indicator, called the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI), surged to a reading of 54.2 in July. Readings above 50 indicate expansion while those below mean contraction.
Economists polled by Reuters predicted the manufacturing gauge to rise to 53.6 in July, so the higher-than-expected number is encouraging, particularly in light of April’s 11-year low of 41.5.
“In July, manufacturing continued its recovery after the disruption caused by the coronavirus pandemic,” said Timothy Fiore. He is the chair of the ISM Manufacturing Business Survey Committee in a release.
There are, however, concerns about sustainability.
“Manufacturing is recovering from low levels and the outlook is uncertain, given the threat of repeated disruptions from virus outbreaks,” said Rubeela Farooqi. He is the chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics. He made the remarks to The Associated Press.
Consumer product companies are working round the clock to restock supplies of household cleaners and toilet paper, and no doubt supplies for meals and for home improvements and repairs as well — that may have something to do with it.
[Free Beacon] The National Rifle Association plans to spend tens of millions of dollars to sway close races throughout the country for the 2020 election.
Jason Ouimet, who runs the NRA's lobbying arm and political action committee, spoke exclusively with the Washington Free Beacon in his first in-depth interview on the gun-rights behemoth's 2020 electoral strategy. He said the group plans to spend heavily in battleground states to help reelect President Donald Trump over presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, whom he described as "100 percent anti-gun." The group plans to focus much of its attention on Arizona, Colorado, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Wisconsin—swing states with traditionally strong support for gun rights.
"We'll be in those places at every level," Ouimet said. And the message will be simple: A President Joe Biden and Democratic Senate are a threat to gun owners.
"You are literally going to be dealing with the potential confiscation of firearms. You're literally going to be told you can't carry in certain places. You can't own certain things for self-defense," Ouimet said. "Folks need to understand that."
The NRA spent $50 million to boost the GOP in 2016 but saw disastrous results in 2018 when it was outspent by gun-control groups. Ouimet said it plans on moving forward with the spending push despite losing between $10 and $15 million from the cancelation of the Second Amendment group's annual meeting and other fundraising events due to the coronavirus pandemic.
"We'll spend tens of millions of dollars. Will it be $50 million? I don't know," Ouimet said. "We got shut down from doing any of that level of fundraising. Yeah, that has an impact on us just the same way it has an impact on everybody else. Does it mean that we're not going to be effective? Does it mean that we're not going to play? No."
The coronavirus pandemic and social unrest may have hindered fundraising, but they have also led to historic gun sales. Ouimet said the NRA has added more than 1,000 new dues-paying members per day since June.
Per day? Wow.
The addition of some 60,000 new members and growing has helped swell NRA ranks to more than five million American adults.
[DAILYTIMES.PK] A youth was killed in the name of honor in the area of Police Station City and his dedbody was dumped near Dhok Gujjar.
The victim’s father Mohammad Tahir, son of Ghulam Jilani, while filing a report with the city police, said that his son Akash Tahir, who works as a lawyer’s clerk in the district court, was want two days ago by Musafar Khan, son of Mohammad Noor, a resident of Dhok Feroz. Who live in a rented house.
Muhammad Tahir says that the next day when Akash did not return, I asked Musafar Khan where is Akash? Musafar Khan said that he did not know. Today Akash Tahir’s dedbody was found in Dhok Gujjar.
According to the Akash’s father, Mahmood al-Hassan told him that Musafar Khan and his son had killed Akash Tahir because Musafar Khan suspected that his daughter Gul Dana had an illicit affair with Akash Tahir.
SDPO Saddar Circle Syed Azhar Hassan Shah along with police personnel rushed to the spot as soon as the incident was reported and shifted the dedbody to District Headquarters Hospital for postmortem.
Police have arrested Musafar Khan, his sons and three women involved in the murder case who were trying to flee Afghanistan. During the preliminary investigation, the arrested accused have confessed to the murder of Akash Tahir.
[IsraelTimes] University of Southern Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, student Rose Ritch says in open letter that classmates told her pro-Israel stance was ’complicit in racism’.
A Jewish student leader at the University of Southern California said she resigned due to harassment over her support for Israel.
Rose Ritch, the vice president of the Undergraduate Student Government, said in an open letter to the campus community Wednesday that she had to resign to "protect my physical safety on campus and my mental health."
The university administration had recently stopped impeachment proceedings against Ritch over allegations of complicity in racial misconduct on campus, and for not calling out alleged racial misconduct and micro-aggressive behavior by the student government president, who resigned last month, the Daily Trojan student newspaper reported.
"I have been harassed and pressured for weeks by my fellow students because they opposed one of my identities. It is not because I am a woman, nor because I identify as queer, femme, or cisgender," Ritch wrote. "All of these identities qualified me as electable when the student body voted last February. But because I also openly identify as a Zionist, a supporter of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, I have been accused by a group of students of being unsuitable as a student leader.
"I have been told that my support for Israel has made me complicit in racism, and that, by association, I am racist. Students launched an aggressive social media campaign to ’impeach [my] Zionist a**.’ This is anti-Semitism, and cannot be tolerated at a University that proclaims to ’nurture an environment of mutual respect and tolerance.’"
Ritch said that "an attack on my Zionist identity is an attack on my Jewish identity," and that the suggestion that her support for a Jewish homeland makes her unfit for office "plays into the oldest stereotypes of Jews, including accusations of dual loyalty and holding all Jews responsible for the actions of the Israeli government."
She said the USC student government "has failed to be an inclusive space for numerous communities on campus."
A USC spokesperson had no immediate comment on Ritch’s accusations, the Daily Trojan reported.
