    On West Virginia MetroNews’ “Talkline with Hoppy Kercheval” on Monday, Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) argued that increasing domestic energy production would allow Europe to get away from Russia’s energy and that if we can’t take away Putin’s energy money, he will never back down. Manchin said, [relevant remarks begin around 5:15] “[H]ere’s the problem that we have: We have an administration that’s — they’re aspirational in basically wanting to switch to…completely going with renewables. I’m for all of the above. But I’m realistic enough to understand the world does not run on renewables. The world’s running on petroleum. The world’s running on fossil. And if you’re going to help the world and offset this, this is over in Europe, okay, and Europe is very dependent upon that because they made that decision, especially Germany tried to wean themselves off of everything. They cut everything off before they had anything to replace it. So, the bottom line is, we’re going to have to be strong in both. And here’s what I tell the environmentalists, we can do both. You don’t have...
    Convoy organizer Bob Bolus says a trucker convoy will shut down Washington, DC’s beltway later this week to protest pandemic mandates while keeping a path open for emergency vehicles, Fox 5 DC reported. Driving from Scranton, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday, Bolus intends to shut down the Capital Beltway, which encircles D.C. and connects major corridors of the greater Maryland and northern Virginia area. The road serves as a major commuting passageway and route for commercial deliveries into the district. It is unknown how long the blockade could last. “We will be along the Beltway where the Beltway will be shut down,” Bob Bolus told Fox 5 DC. “I’ll give you an analogy of that of a giant boa constrictor. That basically squeezes you, chokes you and it swallows you, and that’s what we’re going to do to D.C.” Bolus explained he intends to provide emergency vehicles an open lane to keep inhabitants safe. “There will be a lane open for emergency vehicles, they’ll be able to get in and out and all that,” Bolus said. “We will not compromise anybody’s safety or health, one...
    After multiple cancellations and several delays due to Omicron, Broadway's president has insisted that the show will go on for up to 30 popular performances.   Last week, New York City's iconic theater district was forced to shut down nine separate productions for single or multiple performances after the state logged a record 21,908 COVID-19 cases on Friday.  As of Monday evening, the state broke its own record for the fourth straight day and logged 23,391 cases in 24 hours – about 1,000 more than the 22,478 cases reported the day before.  The newest city data reported that in the last seven days the city has has a daily average of 9,471 total cases of COVID-19, with 7,475 New Yorkers testing positive and 1,997 reporting probable cases.  The city has had a daily average of 94 hospitalizations of people who tested positive and at least 11 confirmed deaths, according NYC Health data.  Broadway has been hit particularly hard by the surge, with popular plays like Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Hamilton, and MJ The Musical all cancelling upcoming shows due to the outbreak.  Dear Evan Hansen, Aladdin, Ain't...
    GARFIELD PARK — A coronavirus outbreak at a West Side school where at least one parent has died from the disease has sparked outrage from teachers and parents who say Chicago Public Schools has not done enough to keep students and staff safe during in-person learning this fall. There have been at least eight confirmed cases of coronavirus in the past two weeks at Jensen Elementary School, 3030 W. Harrison St., according to district data. Over 200 people have been exposed. Jensen has 297 students. District officials have said people who have been exposed must quarantine if they are not vaccinated. The majority of students at Jensen, which serves Pre-K through eighth grade, are not old enough to be vaccinated. Eleven classrooms at the school were quarantined until Monday, when eight of the classes were set to return, parents and teachers said. Jensen parent Shenitha “Angel” Curry, 43, died of complications of coronavirus last week, her family told the Sun-Times. Curry was not vaccinated and her family said her daughter was among the Jensen students who had to quarantine. ...
    A visual representation of digital currencies.Yuriko Nakao | Getty Images New York attorney general Letitia James sent a blistering warning to investors and industry members about the dangers of cryptocurrencies on Monday. "We're sending a clear message to the entire industry that you either play by the rules or we will shut you down," she said in a press release. The warning from James, which addressed individual investors and crypto industry members, comes amid a major start to 2021 for digital assets like bitcoin. The cryptocurrency surged to a new all-time high above $58,000 earlier this month, after garnering attention from Wall Street banks, companies like Tesla and even the U.S. government. Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards Bitcoin, which was created in 2009, has evolved from a protest against the banking system to something of a "digital gold" that is beginning to catch on with mainstream investors. Investment banks like JPMorgan and Goldman Sachs have shown interest in the asset class. Plus, companies like Mastercard have made significant moves to support cryptocurrencies. Tesla invested $1.5 billion into bitcoin in February. The price...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would lock down America again if he were to win the November election, but Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said his state will not shut down again. Speaking with reporters while visiting Central Florida, DeSantis cited his state’s steep drop in COVID-19 hospitalizations as justifying his position on lockdowns. “The number of COVID positive patients that are currently hospitalized is down nearly 60 percent statewide from our July peek,” DeSantis said. “We will never do any of these lockdowns again, and I hear people say they’ll shut down the country, and honestly I cringe.” WPTV reported that “Florida’s new coronavirus cases on Monday dropped below 2,000, the lowest number since June 14.” The governor’s declaration comes weeks after former Vice President Joe Biden said that he would institute a national shutdown if he were elected president in November. “If you’re sworn in come January and we have coronavirus and the flu combining—which many scientists have said is a real possibility—would you be prepared to shut this country down again?” ABC News host...
            by Robert Romano  “I would shut it down, I would listen to the scientists.” That was former Vice President Joe Biden telling ABC News’ David Muir that if elected President in November, he is prepared to shut down the U.S. economy again to deal with the Chinese coronavirus. “I would be prepared to do whatever it takes to save lives because we cannot get the country moving until we control the virus… In order to keep the country running and moving and the economy growing and people employed, you have to fix the virus, you have to deal with the virus,” Biden explained. Apparently, Biden’s plan is to hold the country hostage until there is a vaccine, even though there has never been an effective vaccine for coronavirus. There are several candidate vaccines in development, but there is no assurance they will work. Yet, Biden has already decided there can be no economic growth or jobs unless and until the virus goes away. The reality is that the virus may never go away, and the vaccine might not work....
    CHICAGO — Calling it “a make or break weekend” for bars and restaurants, Mayor Lori Lightfoot threatened to shut down businesses that don’t follow measures put in place to slow the spread of coronavirus. “We see what’s happening in states around the country, even all the states that are surrounding us,” the mayor said at a press conference Thursday. “And when governors get concerned, what do they do first? They shut down the bars and they shut down the restaurants. … “If we see businesses that are flouting the rules … we’re not gonna hesitate to shut you down. And if you’re shut down, you’re not coming back anytime soon.” Lightfoot noted that some bars and restaurants broke the rules right out of the gate last weekend when the city allowed bars and restaurants to have indoor seating. In Wrigleyville, for example, long lines of unmasked people waited to get inside. We simply cannot have any large gatherings like we saw last weekend in our bars and restaurants.” “This is a make or break weekend for you. Your financial fate...
