Mediate reports:

After praising his own leadership, Trump turned toward his 2020 election rival and told his supporters “I wouldn’t say he’s at the top of his game, would you?”

Trump went on to claim that Biden’s presidency would lead to a financial crash, that the ex-veep is a conduit for “the radical left agenda,” and that Biden will “destroy your Second Amendment.”

“No religion, no anything,” Trump said. “Hurt the Bible, hurt God. He’s against God. He’s against guns. He’s against energy, our kind of energy. I don’t think he’s going to do too well in Ohio. If he did, we’d have a big story.”

The Roys Report reports:

Students attending a camp run by the Chicago-area megachurch, Harvest Bible Chapel, were subjected to hazing that included humiliating “punishments” and something called the “Icy Hot Challenge,” according to a recent statement by the church.

The hazing reportedly occurred from July 14-24 at Camp Harvest, a 650-acre, year-round camp in Newaygo, Michigan. The church said that in some cases, students were urged by a Harvest student pastor to participate in a dare called the “Icy Hot Challenge.”

The statement did not describe the challenge. However, according to the Urban Dictionary, the Icy Hot Challenge is a “very painful experience” where a group of guys apply Icy Hot, a lidocaine cream, to their genitals. Then the group sees who can stand the pain the longest.

Read the full article. The pastor has reportedly been fired. As you’ll see at the link, the church has been mired in other scandals recently.

The Wall Street Journal reports:

Initial supplies of any successful coronavirus vaccines are now expected to fall short of what is needed even for high-priority groups like health-care workers, forcing drugmakers and U.S. officials to grapple with the thorny question of who should be first in line.

Public-health officials estimate more than 100 million Americans, including doctors and nurses, other essential workers and nursing-home residents, should get vaccinated before the general public because they are at greater risk of exposure to the virus or of contracting more severe Covid-19 disease.

They were widely expected to get the first supplies after a vaccine is cleared. But there may be 10 million to 20 million doses available at first, according to a slide presentation prepared by the CDC last week.

The Texas Tribune reports:

Five of the Texas Legislature’s most conservative members are suing Gov. Greg Abbott and state health officials, claiming Texas leaders overstepped their bounds when they awarded a major contract for tracking Texas’ coronavirus outbreak to a little-known technology firm.

In a lawsuit filed Monday, Republican state Reps. Mike Lang, Kyle Biedermann, Bill Zedler, Steve Toth and state Sen. Bob Hall asked a Travis County judge to void the controversial contract, arguing that both the selection process and length of the contract were improper.

“The Texas Constitution requires a separation of powers, and that separation leaves policy-making decisions with the Texas Legislature,” the lawsuit argues. “The Governor cannot establish new state policy, issue a $295M contract to [implement] that policy, and ignore or suspend state statutes just by claiming ‘It’s a disaster.’”

President Trump on Thursday suggested the National Rifle Association (NRA) relocate to Texas following a lawsuit from the New York attorney general seeking to dissolve the gun rights group.

“I just heard about that. That’s a very terrible thing that just happened,” Trump said of the lawsuit while speaking with reporters outside the White House. “I think the NRA should move to Texas and lead a very good and beautiful life. And I’ve told them that for a long time.”

Trump added that Texas, which has a history of embracing gun rights, would be “a great place and an appropriate place for the NRA.” The organization is currently headquartered in Fairfax, Va., but is chartered as a nonprofit in New York state.

DeWine took a COVID-19 test as part of the protocol to meet Trump on the tarmac at Burke Lakefront Airport in Cleveland. Trump planned to tour the Whirlpool plant in Clyde, Ohio, before attending a private fundraiser in Bratenahl.

DeWine has no symptoms at the present time, according to a news release. He is returning to Columbus where he and First Lady Fran DeWine will both be tested. DeWine plans to quarantine at his home in Cedarville for the next 14 days.

The storms will keep rolling in. Forecasters from the federal government said Thursday that an “extremely active” hurricane season was likely for the Atlantic Basin, with as many as 25 named storms forming.

This includes the nine named storms that have already formed: Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Edouard, Fay, Gonzalo, Hanna and Isaias. “This is one of the most active seasonal forecasts that NOAA has produced in its 22-year history of hurricane outlooks,” said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross in a statement.

Overall, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said 19 to 25 named storms will develop, of which seven to 11 will be hurricanes. Storms become hurricanes when their winds reach 74 mph.

Like most of their recent changes, this is long overdue:

Twitter will start labeling the accounts of media outlets affiliated with the governments of countries on the U.N. National Security Council, it announced Thursday. The new labels won’t apply to all media outlets that receive government funding — only “outlets where the state exercises control over editorial content through financial resources, direct or indirect political pressures, and/or control over production and distribution.”

The labels will go on the accounts for China Daily, Russia Today, Sputnik and other media outlets, a Twitter spokesperson said. But not Voice of America and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, two media outlets funded by the U.S. government, or NPR and the BBC. The blog post described NPR and the BBC as “state-financed media organizations with editorial independence.”

YouTube already does this.

The Washington Post reports:

The chief executive of the National Rifle Association and several top lieutenants engaged in a decades-long pattern of fraud to raid the coffers of the powerful gun rights group for personal gain, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday by the New York attorney general, draining $64 million from the nonprofit in just three years.

In her lawsuit, Attorney General Letitia James called for the dissolution of the NRA and the removal of CEO Wayne LaPierre from the leadership post he has held for the past 39 years, saying he and others used the group’s funds to finance a luxury lifestyle.

She also asked a New York court to force LaPierre and three key deputies to repay NRA members for the ill-gotten funds and inflated salaries that her investigation found they took.

CNN reports:

Large crowds mobbed French President Emmanuel Macron in Beirut as he toured a neighborhood of the Lebanese capital devastated by Tuesday’s massive explosion.

“Revolution, revolution!” people chanted, as shock at the devastation in the city gave way to anger on Thursday. New information reveals that Beirut officials had ignored repeated warnings about a stockpile of dangerous chemicals linked to the blast that has killed 137 people and injured 5,000.

Macron told a crowd of reporters and angry people that he would propose a “new political pact” to Lebanon’s embattled political class during his visit to a predominantly Christian quarter of the city.

CBS News reports:

A series of arrests were made following Tuesday’s devastating explosions in Beirut, Lebanon. At least 137 people were killed in a flash, more than 5,000 and some 300,000 left homeless. Lebanese President Michel Aoun warned that the death toll is likely to rise.

“It is time to grieve for our martyrs, wounded and missing,” he told the country’s national news agency.

As new details emerged, the government on Wednesday ordered the house arrest of port officials who knew about the thousands of tons of ammonium nitrate explosives stored at the port for six years without safety measures. Aoun said the officials would face “the harshest punishment” if they are found responsible.

The Daily Beast reports:

As President Donald Trump hints that he plans to deliver his nomination speech from the White House on Aug. 27, the hotel bearing his name down the street is making a power play of its own: spiking its room rates by more than 60 percent for those convention dates. Listings for rooms at the Trump International Hotel in D.C., via Hotels.com, show rooms for one adult on the night of the address starting at $795 and running as high as $2,070.

That price tag represents a massive increase from the $495 starting rate currently offered for the dates one week following and one week prior. For three days before Trump’s scheduled speech—which were originally scheduled to be the dates of the GOP convention in Charlotte, North Carolina—the hotel is charging $695 a night for its cheapest room. The hotel will begin charging $795 that Thursday, and continue through the weekend, before dropping back to $495 on Monday.

Joe Biden says that he believes prosecuting a former president would be a “very unusual thing and probably not very good for democracy,” but he would not stand in the way of a future Justice Department pursuing criminal charges against President Trump after he leaves office.

“Look, the Justice Department is not the president’s private law firm. The attorney general is not the president’s private lawyer. I will not interfere with the Justice Department’s judgment of whether or not they think they should pursue the prosecution of anyone that they think has violated the law,” Biden told NPR’s Lulu Garcia-Navarro.

Biden made clear that any future prosecution against Trump would not be directed by him if he’s elected president. “In terms of saying, ‘I think the president violated the law. I think the president did this, therefore, go on and prosecute him’ — I will not do that,” he said.

President Donald Trump on Thursday suggested moving up the first presidential debate, stating that he and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden “owe it to the American People” to battle it out on stage before any states cast their votes.

Trump’s remarks came just hours after his re-election campaign sent a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates on Wednesday formally requesting a debate be held during the first week of September before early voting begins in 16 states.

The first debate is currently scheduled to take place on Sept. 29, with two other debates scheduled for Oct. 15 and Oct. 22.

Popular Information reports:

This week, the Trump campaign has been heavily promoting a contest to win a “VIP Dinner” with Trump in Southhampton, New York, on August 8th. Advertisements on Facebook touted the dinner as a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity” to share a meal with Trump. The campaign solicited donations from Facebook users for a chance to win.

According to Facebook data, The Trump campaign spent between $79,000 and $100,000 on Facebook ads promoting the contest between August 3 and August 4. (Facebook provides ad spending data in ranges). The ad was shown to Facebook users at least 4.5 million times.

According to the contest’s official rules, the winner was selected on Wednesday and will be notified on Thursday. The event is on Friday. The timeline means that it is impossible for residents of 34 states to legally attend the dinner because of COVID-19 travel restrictions.

Read the full article. As Popular Information has previously reported, the Trump campaign has run dozens of “contests” in which there were no winners. That violates rules governing such contests in multiple states.

If you’ve followed the screencaps I’ve been posting to Twitter, every day I get texted offers to win contests for trips, signed hats, or “exclusive” membership in Trump donor clubs. It’s all bullshit.

Yahoo Finance reports:

The number of new unemployment insurance claims improved last week to a pandemic-era low but held above 1 million yet again, as the coronavirus outbreak continues to weigh on the pace of recovery in the labor market.

Thursday’s report reflected the twentieth straight week that new claims topped 1 million, as the pandemic forced furloughs and layoffs across the country. Since the week ended March 20, more than 55 million individuals filed for new unemployment insurance claims.

The previous $600 per week in augmented federal unemployment insurance expired at the end of July, though many workers received their last payment from the program during the prior week.

The Cedar Rapids Gazette reports:

A new ad from President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign uses a manipulated version of a news photo taken in Coralville by a Gazette photographer to falsely say it shows presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden hiding in his Delaware basement.

The image, which was used without The Gazette’s permission, was taken by Photo Editor Liz Martin in December 2019 when Biden was visiting the home of Coralville Mayor John Lundell. About three dozen supporters and journalists were at the event, Martin said, and Biden sat on the floor to give someone else his seat.

The Gazette’s policy forbids the use of Gazette news photos for any political advertising. Neither Martin nor Diana Pesek, who handles the newspaper’s licensing requests, gave the campaign permission to republish the image.

The Houston Chronicle reports:

In an apparent warning shot at Dr. Stella Immanuel, the Texas agency that regulates the practice of medicine has advised physicians it can take action against those who promise a cure for COVID-19.

Numerous studies have found the drug touted by Immanuel does not show any benefit against COVID-19 and the Food and Drug Administration has cautioned about its use because of reports linking it with heart problems and other injuries and disorders. “

A physician must provide full disclosure of treatment options, side effects, obtain informed consent, and there cannot be false, misleading or deceptive advertising or statements made regarding any therapies, including a cure for COVID-19,” says the medical board’s statement.
