Donald Trump: You Would Certainly Ended Up In WORLD WAR

The USA would certainly remain in a globe battle now if Donald Trump had not been chosen the head of state.

That’s according to the head of state himself, that made the insurance claim at an anti-media at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. on Friday evening.

” Also when we do wonderful points, you take a look at North Korea, exactly how excellent are we doing?” Trump asked the group.


” It’s been happening with them for 70 years, greater than 70 years, this is currently our 4th month. As well as they constantly claim, he’s stagnating quickly sufficient. Quick sufficient?

” If I had not been right here, you would certainly have ended up in a world WAR, you enjoy, you would certainly have ended up in a world WAR.”

Trump took place to claim that also when he states he has a fantastic conference with individuals such as Russian Head Of State Vladimir Putin, “they play it up as unfavorable as they can.”

He talked on the exact same day it arose that Trump had actually welcomed Putin to Washington.

” We have all the cards,” Trump claimed. “We have all the cards since we’re the piggy financial institution that everyone wishes to assault and also rob and also take from, we have all the cards.

” Yet they made it look as unfavorable, that was a fantastic conference I had, they make it look, every one of them, as unfavorable as feasible, mostly all of them.”

Trump, later on, raised his service NATO, stating, “We’re securing them and also they’re not paying their expenses, and also we wish to shield them, however, they have actually reached pay their expenses.”

He claimed NATO companions “consented to pay $44 billion, even more, cash we do not need to pay inevitably since it’s unfair, it’s unfair.”

Trump’s insurance claims concerning NATO were formerly the topic of a “reality check” by The Associated Press.

The item slammed the head of state’s “malfunctioning insurance claim” that NATO had actually “accumulated” $44 billion in 2017– that cash, in fact, described just how much NATO participants had actually increased their armed forces costs because of year.

REPORT: Pandemic grants helped Vermont businesses bolster bottom line

REPORT: Pandemic grants helped Vermont businesses bolster bottom line

MONTPELIER, Vt. (WFFF) — A new audit from Vermont’s state auditor suggests that many Vermont businesses may have been awarded too much money from last year’s COVID Economic Recovery Grant Program.

State Auditor Doug Hoffer says the state agency in charge of the program used a funding formula that didn’t take businesses’ full financial picture into account. As a result, he says, two-thirds of the 57 Vermont businesses audited were more profitable in 2020 than the previous year, partly due to the grant funding.

Hoffer said the Agency of Commerce and Community Development should have factored in money some companies saved early in the pandemic by cutting payroll and reducing overhead costs. “Those 57 businesses reported $130 million of need,” he said. “When we did the adjusted net operating income method, it was $14 million. That’s all that’s involved here, whether these funds were really closely and carefully directed to those most in need.”

Hoffer said the companies played by the rules, but the rules may have meant companies with greater need were left out of the program. “If a lot of money went to firms that didn’t need it, or didn’t have anywhere near the need of your company that was struggling just to survive and come out of this in one piece,” he said, “then money that went to those guys wasn’t available for you.”

Commerce Secretary Lindsay Kurrle disputes Hoffer’s findings. She said there was broad support for the funding process, and the grants weren’t greenlit solely by her department. “It was done with the Administration and the Legislature’s blessing, and it was within the guidance of the U.S. Treasury,” she said. “We had to deploy money. We had businesses that had not seen any income for five months that were unable to pay their own bills, and there’s such a trickle-down effect when that happens.”

Still, Hoffer is concerned taxpayers would be on the hook for the extra money given to businesses if the U.S. Treasury ever came back for it. He believes state officials and the Vermont Legislature need to know exactly how much money Vermont could owe the federal government if it decides to reclaim it.

Kurrle believes that’s an unlikely scenario. “We have not heard anything from the federal government that would indicate that they do not support the way we deployed this money, so at this point in time I don’t have a concern that’s going to be the case,” she said.

The businesses themselves can’t be held liable. The program was established to provide emergency assistance to businesses in need. In total, the Agency disbursed $117 million to 2,278 businesses through the program in 2020. Federal guidelines said that, as long as the rules of the program were followed, businesses would be held harmless for issues that emerged later on.

New Yorkers warned about risks of using fake COVID vaccination cards

New Yorkers warned about risks of using fake COVID vaccination cards

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The New York State Division of Consumer Protection is warning New Yorkers about the risks of buying or using fake COVID-19 vaccination cards. Officials say as more places are requiring proof of vaccination, scammers are taking advantage of this by selling fake verification tools including fake cards, certificates, and test results.

Buying fake vaccine cards, making your own or filling the blanks with false information is illegal and could land you in jail. Officials say the vaccines are safe and opting for a fake vaccination card instead of getting vaccinated is a health and legal risk.

“Making or possessing fake COVID-19 vaccination cards are serious crimes. We are taking this issue very seriously due to the tremendous risk presented by these false documents,” said State Police Superintendent Kevin P. Bruen. “Anyone found to be involved with forged vaccine cards will be charged and face the legal consequences.”

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has received several complaints from people reporting cases of possible fraud related to COVID-19 vaccination. They also received complaints of websites offering, for a fee, vaccine waivers and medical exemptions without seeing a doctor. The FTC is investigating these and other cases of possible vaccine fraud.

Officials warn:

  • Presenting fraudulent COVID-19 vaccination cards or test results can land you in jail. Buying or making fake vaccine cards or filling in blank cards with false information is illegal and could lead to fines or even land you in jail.
  • The only legitimate way to get proof of vaccination or a negative test result is to get vaccinated or to test negative.
  • Protect your personal information from COVID scams. Scammers set up fraudulent websites offering fake vaccine appointments or call people claiming to be COVID surveyors to collect people’s personal information. Never give out personal information over the phone.

New Yorkers can also report vaccine-related fraud by calling 833-VAX-SCAM (833-829-7226) or emailing [email protected]

Rockies clinch another losing season, while power-hitting Giants win 100th game

Rockies clinch another losing season, while power-hitting Giants win 100th game

The Rockies were hoping to play David to the Giants’ Goliath. The Dodgers were hoping so, too.

Nothing doing.

Home-run happy San Francisco cranked out four more long balls Friday night at Coors Field en route to a 7-2 cruiser over Colorado.

The Rockies, who were officially eliminated from playoff contention on Thursday, fell to 71-82, clinching their third consecutive losing season and the 20th losing season in their 29 years of existence.

The storied Giants, now 100-54, reached the 100-win mark for the eighth time in their long history, but the first time since 2013.

More vital, they kept their slim lead over the Dodgers in the National League West. The Giants entered Friday one game ahead of their rivals with nine games remaining in the season. The Dodgers were playing at Arizona in a late game.

A bit of good news for Colorado was the performance of starter Peter Lambert. It was a milestone night for the right-hander, who underwent Tommy John surgery on July 21, 2020.

Pitching in a major league game for the first time since Sept. 20, 2019, Lambert took a positive step forward. He gave up two runs on four hits, walked one and struck out two in 3 2/3 innings. He threw 65 pitches, 38 for strikes. The game plan was for Lambert to throw about 60 pitches.

Lambert’s night, however, began with a big-league jolt of reality. On the game’s second pitch, Tommy La Stella lined Lambert’s 95 mph fastball into the right-field seats. In the second inning, Brandon Crawford launched a one-out solo blast into the second deck above right field. Crawford’s 442-foot homer had an exit velocity of 106.1 mph.

San Francisco’s other two homers came off of long reliever Ashton Goudeau. Brandon Belt led off the sixth with a 424-foot shot to right. Mike Yastrzemski put the game away with a three-run blast in the seventh.

Friday marked the 17th time this season the Giants hit at least four home runs and they are now just one blast shy of matching their all-time record for homers in a single season. That was in 2001, and yes, that was the year Barry Bonds hit 73 homers. This year’s Giants have no one with 30 or more homers. Belt leads the team with 27.

Giants starter Alex Wood stuck around for just four innings before getting lifted for a pinch-hitter. Colorado nicked the left-hander for two runs in the first. Raimel Tapia beat out an infield squibber for a leadoff single and Brendan Rodgers followed with a line-drive single to right. Charlie Blackmon’s single scored Tapia, and Elias Diaz’s pitching wedge single to shallow right scored Rodgers.

Advocates urge NY to boost $2B fund for undocumented workers

Advocates urge NY to boost $2B fund for undocumented workers

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York might be on track to exhaust its $2.1 billion pandemic relief fund for undocumented workers, just weeks after it began accepting applications. Advocacy groups for immigrant workers are calling on the state to add as much as $1.4 billion to the fund—the largest of its kind in the county—to meet unexpectedly strong demand.

Initially, the state had estimated that the fund could benefit as many as 300,000 people whose immigration status made them ineligible for federal stimulus checks, unemployment aid, or other benefits. But contrary to expectations, nearly all 92,000 people approved for aid so far have qualified for the maximum $15,600 available under the program, the state’s website showed Thursday afternoon. Roughly 223,500 claims have been submitted overall, with a rush coming in recent days.

Natividad Aguilar, a 31-year-old mother of three daughters in Manhattan, is among those waiting for her application to be processed. She works a string of jobs, including cleaning homes, and said some in her community were skeptical or worried about the fund initially. But she said such concerns are dwindling as tens of thousands have received financial assistance in recent weeks.

“I’m so excited for the help and so grateful that New York is providing this help,” she said. “So, so many people need it.”

The Department of Labor told advocates Wednesday that it will alert potential applicants as soon as Friday that assistance won’t be guaranteed even if they’re eligible. They said “applications that have been submitted can be considered safe, that there might be a waitlist and that applications would be prioritized by the date of initial submission,” according to Bianca Guerrero, campaign coordinator for the Fund Excluded Workers Coalition.

The Department of Labor didn’t answer questions Thursday about whether the fund was likely to run out of money, or whether assistance might not be guaranteed if that happened. It’s unclear when or if the Democratic-led Legislature would consider a funding boost. Minority Republicans balked at Democrats’ passage of the fund this spring. Sen. Gustavo Rivera, a Democrat from the Bronx who chairs the Senate health committee, said he supports increased funding.

To be eligible, applicants must have made less than $26,208 in 2020, prove they are New York residents and show they have suffered loss of earnings because of the pandemic. They must also have worked at least six weeks during the six months before they lost earnings because of the pandemic.

Eligibility documentation might include recent tax returns with a valid taxpayer identification number, pay stubs or employer letters. Immigrants who can only prove identity and residency can receive $3,200 in payments if they don’t have required work documents. Even as the program has begun to run out of money, worker advocates have urged the state to loosen application rules.

Carina Kaufman-Gutierrez, deputy director at the Street Vendor Project at the Urban Justice Center, said it’s tough for workers who aren’t listed on an apartment lease or utility bill to prove residency. Municipal ID programs in New York City and elsewhere allow roommates to write affidavits to help prove residency, she said. The state allows self-employed workers to write letters that attest to their income. Workers paid in cash can receive similar letters from employers.

But Kaufman-Gutierrez and other advocates interviewed by The Associated Press say the state needs to let applicants know that workers paid in cash, like babysitters or domestic workers, can also provide their own letters in scenarios where employers refuse to do so. “There are still these very significant barriers for those who are still not able to apply,” she said. “These are the most vulnerable workers who need funds the most and deserve them.”

Advocates are also urging New York to make its helpline and follow-up notifications available in other languages besides English. Department of Labor spokesperson Deanna Cohen said the state is working to expedite the application process.

Meanwhile, some lawyers and notaries are charging applicants hundreds of dollars to help workers fill out the application. Advocates are reporting incidents to the attorney general and labor department.

Rosanna Aran, co-executive director of the Manhattan-based Laundry Workers Center, which represents over 2,100 workers, urged workers to ignore such “scams.” She said, “We are hearing people are paying $300 just to fill out the application, sometimes $150, $500.”

The state has provided grants to over 75 community-based organizations to provide free application assistance.

NYSPHSAA memo clarifies state guidance: Student-athletes must wear masks

NYSPHSAA memo clarifies state guidance: Student-athletes must wear masks

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR) — Bishop Ludden’s volleyball team has been wearing masks while playing since last year.

“The kids have made a pretty good adjustment to that,” said Bishop Ludden Head Volleyball Coach John Buskey. “Nobody likes it, if we’re honest. We would love to see the masks go away.”

Masks won’t be going away anytime soon. This week, the New York State Public High School Athletic Association (NYSPHSAA) clarified guidance from the state health department in a memo.

It mandates that everyone including students and visitors wear a mask while indoors regardless of vaccination status. It also says if it’s not possible for an athlete to wear a mask and they cannot maintain six foot distancing, then they should not participate.

“I wasn’t surprised to see it come down. Some of the other sports—volleyball, we’re actually somewhat distanced most of the time anyway,” Buskey explained, “Mask-wearing doesn’t always make sense. In some other sports where you’re close, like in basketball, it may make a little more sense.”

Coach Buskey said he wishes the state guidance included considerations for students with medical conditions like asthma. “Especially if they have exercise-induced asthma where they just need to have the ability to breathe,” Buskey said. “In volleyball, it’s really home court rules as far as how much it’s enforced or not enforced. You see, some of the masks dropping down around the chins most the kids now are at least good about covering their mouths with the masks

Buskey said he will continue to advocate for students. He hopes the state will eventually adjust the guidance for medical exemptions and even tailor it to individual sports.

Pesticide protest at Delmar CVS on Sunday

DELMAR, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Bethlehem residents concerned about pesticides will be protesting the CVS store in Delmar on September 26 starting at 9 a.m. The organizer of the event, Joe Murphy, says protesters will bring signs and informational flyers to attract public notice concerning pesticide use by CVS.

Murphy said he contacted CVS and other businesses earlier this summer and offered them information about natural alternatives to pesticides. He says CVS continues to use pesticides on their lawn.

“Some of the other businesses we contacted were grateful for the prompt and decided to stop using pesticides. It’s unfortunate that CVS insists on continuing this toxic practice,” said Murphy.

The picketing is part of a new Pest Protest anti-pesticide action plan. Murphy says the protests will continue and grow until CVS agrees to stop using pesticides in the community.

“Picketing, social media, news coverage, you name it. We are confident that once the public understands what this business is doing, they will tell them to stop, ” said Murphy.
