Report: DOJ Routinely Lets High-Ranking Officials Get Away With Crimes, Policy Violations

By  Ashe Schow A new report highlights how the Department of Justice routinely fails to prosecute high-ranking department officials despite criminal referrals from the department’s inspector general. RealClearInvestigations (my former employer) examined several instances of DOJ employees committing crimes but not getting prosecuted. For example, an FBI attorney shoplifted from the Marine Corps Base Quantico Exchange multiple times before getting caught with $257.99 worth of stolen cosmetics. She admitted to also stealing from other stores but wasn’t prosecuted. “Not that it was a surprise. The Justice Department regularly declines to prosecute high-ranking current and former department officials, even when...

Stanford Professors: Coronavirus Death Rate Estimate Likely ‘Orders Of Magnitude Too High’

By  Amanda Prestigiacomo On Tuesday, professors of medicine at Stanford University, Dr. Bendavid and Dr. Bhattacharya, released statistical data that shows the estimated death rates of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19, are likely “orders of magnitude too high.” Models that have been used by government officials project that million of Americans, 2.2-4 million, will perish from COVID-19 if no precautions are taken, peaking in June. But after looking at data samples from places like Wuhan, China, where the virus originated, hard-hit northeast Italy, Iceland, and the United States, our nation may be looking at a .01 death rate, which...

Wisconsin-Based American Flag Manufacturer Shifts to Making Medical Masks

by Kyle Olson A Wisconsin-based manufacturer is pivoting from making American flags to producing masks for medical workers. “We put a lot of work into it this weekend to make the prototypes and now it’s just training the staff,” Eder Flag CEO Jody Goglio told WISN. Eder Flag is the largest manufacturer of American flags and flagpoles in the U.S., according to its website. “They’re moving a little bit slower, but that’s because we want to make sure whatever the final product is, it’s quality product. That’s most important for us.” The employee-owned company hopes its seamstresses will be...

While Europe Locks Down, Sweden Keeps Schools, Restaurants Open

By  James Barrett With many governments across the globe opting for draconian measures, including shutting down most schools and “non-essential” businesses and issuing “shelter-in-place” orders — measures that have brought economies to a screeching halt — Sweden’s government has thus far chosen to take a far more hands-off approach. Unlike in most of Europe, Sweden’s primary schools and restaurants and bars remain open, and “take responsibility” is the phrase of the day from officials. And, so far, as reported by AFP on Tuesday, Sweden’s less stringent approach appears to be working well enough, with the country reporting fewer confirmed COVID-19 cases...

The study concludes by addressing the question of whether South Korea’s response is transferrable to other countries, including the U.S. The report, written by Max Fisher and Choe Sang-Hun, begins by highlighting just how successful in comparison to other countries South Korea’s response to coronavirus has been. “At the peak, medical workers identified 909 new cases...

The Nuclear Option: Coronavirus Press Briefings Prove, Once Again, Our Media Are Useless

by Charles Hurt Every pandemic has a silver lining. In this one, we have finally determined without any doubt that regular White House press briefings no longer serve any useful purpose and should never be resumed. The current gathered press is entirely unworthy of them. The Fourth Estate has become a useless appendage on the republic. A useless appendage filled with self-serving, cancerous pus. “Enemy of the People,” you might call them. While generously patting themselves on the back, navel-gazers in the national political media today often talk about how they are on the “front row of history” and...
