Trump Rallies to Begin Subsequent Week; DC Mayor Sued for BLM Writing in Road | NTD

published on July 3, 2020



good evening and welcome to NTD news I'm

Stephanie a Cox here in today's top


president Trump's first rally is set to

happen next week but he's facing

criticism of where when and how he's

planning it the DC mayor is being sued

for allegedly picking favorites using

taxpayer money the suit comes after

black lives matter was written in big

letters on one of the city's streets the

latest development in the Michael Flynn

case three judges are divided over

whether they should order a lower judge

to drop the case after he refused

Microsoft and other companies say

they've stopped selling facial

recognition technology to police they

say they expect Congress to regulate its

use and a knife attack has been reported

in Hong Kong our on-site reporter was

involved in the altercation and one

bystander was injured


the Trump campaign is starting up

rallies next week it will be the first

in three months

some are criticizing the move because of

potential virus spread others criticize

the date and location of the planned

rally and TD's Molina weisscap has more

Trump rallies will start up again next

week the first one will be in Tulsa

Oklahoma on Friday a beautiful new venue

brand-new and they're looking forward to

it they've done a great job with kovat

as you know in the state of Oklahoma but

some now criticizing Trump for the

rallies also announced their support for

recent protests taking place across the

nation representative Val Demmings

considered Joe Biden's running mate

criticized Trump's move calling it

selfish and irresponsible

that's after she attended a healing and

hope rally earlier this week one doctor

says any kind of gathering poses a risk

for the spread and the bigger a mass

gathering becomes the more likely you're

going to have an exposure and we're

really worried about what will happen to

the contact tracers who have to then go

and try and figure out who is in contact

with you the Trump campaign is making

people RSVP which is said to help

contact tracers it's trying to keep a

log of who was there and when so they

can actually make the contact tracing

this job much easier to do but obviously

if you have a mass gathering with tens

of thousands of people that still

becomes very daunting even if you have

everybody's names anyone who wants to

attend the rally has to sign a

disclosure statement saying they won't

sue the Trump campaign if they choose to

go to the rally and then contract the

virus Trump is also facing criticism for

the date of the rally set for June 19th

which is an American holiday that

commemorates the day Texas abolished

slavery in 1865 Molina Weiss cup in TV

news Trump said in an interview with Fox

this morning that he did not choose the

June 19th date on purpose but says the

date itself being when slavery was

abolished could be seen as a celebration

and activists are suing the mayor of

Washington DC for ordering the words

black lives matter to be painted on a

city street the lawsuit alleges mayor

Bowser violated the First Amendment by

showing preference to one

leaf over another Bowser told reporters

last week that the word sent a message

to the American people that black

humanity matters a group is suing DC

Mayor Muriel Bowser for allegedly

violating the First Amendment they claim

having black lives matter painted on a

city street shows preference to one

belief over another the First Amendment

prohibits government action that favors

one religion over another the plaintiffs

argue the mayor used taxpayer money to

promote one faith or belief over another

the complaint comes about a week after

she ordered city workers to paint the

words in large yellow letters near the

White House and renamed that section of

the street black lives matter plaza the

lawsuits plaintiffs are a pastor a

former military judge in a DC lobbyist

the plaintiffs have asked the court to

order the mayor to display other banners

on the street such as blue lives matter

in all lives matter

they say that way she would not be

showing favoritism to a particular group

Bowser said that like all of the city's

public art the banner stays we think

it's going to have a central place not

in just DC history but in American

history and we should be proud of it the

lawsuit alleges the banner conveys the

message that blacks are the city's

favorite race they argue this itself is

a racist position the mayor's office did

not immediately respond to a request for

a comment a panel of three judges in the

District of Columbia appears to be at an

impasse they're split on whether or not

to intervene in the case of former Trump

adviser Lieutenant General Michael Flynn

the Justice Department alongside former

Trump advisor Michael Flynn is reaching

out to a DC appeals court it's asking

the courts judges to rule over DC

District Judge Emmett Sullivan who is

refusing to accept the do Jay's motion

to drop the Flynn case but so far they

remain divided there's nothing wrong

with him holding a hearing as far as I

know but he doesn't have the authority

to conduct that hearing your honor he

has appointed this amicus to go far

beyond the scope of his authority

Flynn formerly headed the Defense

Intelligence Agency during the Obama

administration and later served as an

security adviser to President Trump he

pleaded guilty in 2017 to one count of

lying during an FBI interview but he

abandoned the plea earlier this year the

DOJ moved to drop Flynn's case last

month saying the FBI didn't have a

reason to interview Flynn in the first


the department accused the bureau of

questioning Flynn to elicit those very

false statements and thereby criminalize

him so far judge Sullivan who presided

over Flynn's case hasn't accepted the

dismissal he's also indicated that he

wants to probe the DOJ about its motives

for dropping the case the judges didn't

set a schedule for making a decision in

response to the recent protests

microsoft says it won't sell facial

recognition technology to police at

first wants the federal government to

regulate its use they're raising

concerns over how the technology can be

used by law enforcement to racially

profile people so they're calling on the

federal government to regulate the

software and prevent profiling the

founder of Logan's security consulting

says it's possible so these technologies

like facial recognition have the ability

to differentiate between ethnicity and

race but that might be an example where

the government could tell the technology

companies and law enforcement and even

private industry who is using the

technology that they are not allowed to

filter for race IBM and Amazon have made

similar announcements following the

international Floyd protests ironically

Microsoft says it wants a strong

national law grounded in human rights

but an online security watchdog says the

company is providing web services to

blacklisted Chinese firms since time and

Megg V these two facial recognition

companies have been blacklisted by the

US for their part in the persecution of

Uighur Muslims in Shenyang the Chinese

Communist Party has installed massive

surveillance systems to track the

movement of Weger Muslims

what's happening in China is a direct

result of the government's willingness

to use this technology in impressive

ways iBM is also questioning whether law

enforcement should use facial

recognition andrew says there should be

a place for it

from the law-enforcement standpoint

generally I'm in in favor of legitimate

legal honest law enforcement the use of

any technology they use video right now

so facial recognition should have a

place there digital rights group

Electronic Frontier Foundation says the

technology is particularly bad at

recognizing african-americans correctly

Miguel Moreno NTD news state attorneys

general are suing 26 drug makers and ten

individuals for allegedly price fixing

generic drugs one of the plaintiffs

calls the companies the largest domestic

corporate cartel in the country's


forty-six state attorney generals are

filing a lawsuit against 26 drug

manufacturers and ten individuals for

price-fixing on multiple generic drugs

companies of collusion on prices from at

least 2009 through early 2016

the plaintiffs of the lawsuit are 46

manufacturers feasor Novartis and Milan

Connecticut Attorney General William

Tong accused the defendants of stealing

billions upon billions of dollars from

American families every year Tong says

the companies were in constant

divide the market between each other the

lawsuit says the collusion kept prices

high for consumers by eliminating

competition among the companies Tong

says his investigation is ongoing and

expanding in the states are currently

domestic corporate cartel in US history

dzifa's spokeswoman says the company

mentioned in the accusation British

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says it's

absurd and shameful that the statue of

former Prime Minister Winston Churchill

has had to be boxed up

there are fears the statue could be

vandalized last weekend protesters

sprayed the phrase Churchill was a

racist on the statue

Johnson says the figure is a permanent

reminder of Churchill's achievement in

saving this country and the whole of

Europe from the fascist and wrath

racists tyranny he says anyone who

attacks public property or police will

face the full force of the law more

protests are expected across the UK this

weekend demonstrators say statues of

people with links to the slave trade

should be taken down but many think it's

a step too far our UK correspondent Jane

where'll has more cool is to take down

statues with links to Britain's imperial

s pastor gaining momentum across the UK

some historians are urging caution

saying that we can learn from and

reflect on history people do get carried

away especially today by the notions of

sort of moral outrage and this is very

much whipped up on social media and on

the internet so that's perhaps why

feelings are more intense at the moment

but that does often does not help

reflection and campaigners are targeting

a statue in Oxford of colonialist and

mining entrepreneur Cecil Rhodes saying

he represents white supremacy but the

university's vice-chancellor says

removing the statue could amount to

hiding history the point of history is

to understand the past and to realize

why people acted in the way that they

did then rather than try to tell them

that they were always wrong and that

they should have lived as we live today

with our views earlier this month

activists dismantled a statue of Edward

Colston an English philanthropist and

politician who was heavily involved in

the slave industry his statue was

dragged through the streets and then

thrown into the river

it has since been pulled out and the

mayor says it will be put in the city's

Museum a far left group stop Trump

Coalition has collated a hit list of

about 78 statues to pull down in the UK

it includes this statue of Lord

baden-powell the local counselor says

baden-powell who is the founder of the

scouts did a lot to bring people with

different backgrounds and races together

we want to keep him here in the long

term and that means that we have to

protect him in the short term their

strong support from the locals in the

town saying it should stay as you wanted

to stay I will fight for him and tell me

what's the strength of feeling in the

local community everyone there's nobody

against it they want it here a structure

around it to keep it safe what's the

problem with that there's no problem

with that no problem at all

so what are they going to do take the

pyramids and gloom Patras needle down

the UK's opposition party councils have

said they will review statues that have

links to slavery the London Mayor has

ordered a commission to review the

diversity of the city's landmarks which

includes street names murals and

memorials Jane Worrell ntg News London

and a YouGov poll shows most people

didn't support the way Edward Colston

statue was thrown into the river by

activists in southwest England and in

other news insurance companies say they

won't pay policy holders business losses

from the CCP virus shutdowns insurers

argue the monthly payout could cost

hundreds of billions of dollars which

could make them go bankrupt insurance

companies don't want to pay small

businesses for the revenue losses during

the CCP virus shutdowns this includes

policyholders with business interruption

coverage but one New Jersey lawmaker

wants to force insurers to pay out even

if pandemic coverage isn't explicitly

included in the policy insurers argue

that it would be unconstitutional for a

government to force them they're also

worried about the cost and insurance

trade group warns it could cost the

industry hundreds of billions of dollars


to compensate small businesses that

could bankrupt insurers but according to

Reuters its estimates are based on an

absolute worst-case scenario for the

industry the Insurance Information

Institute says that less than half of

all small businesses have business

interruption coverage and very few of

those policies explicitly cover

pandemics in this case it would only

cause the industry millions per month

not hundreds of billions but it appears

insurers don't even want to pay out to

these people they say business

interruption insurance should only cover

closures due to physical damage not

pandemics trade groups say the industry

stance has to tear people from filing

claims but some are taking legal action

with dozens of court cases lined up up

the state backed campaign was

manipulating the platform and it had

violated its policies Twitter announced

a Thursday it removed thousands of

accounts backed by the Chinese communist

regime almost 2,400 active accounts were

suspended for artificially pushing

narratives on topics such as the CCP

virus an additional 150,000 state-backed

accounts were deleted for their role in

amplifying these posts Twitter

researchers determined that these were

fake accounts that had links to another

state backed operation that Twitter took

down last year the propaganda campaign

also targeted Taiwan and the

pro-democracy protest movement in Hong

Kong Twitter said this network was in

addition to another Beijing operated

network on Twitter identified by the US

State Department last month back in

Twitter to ban scores of accounts for

spreading propaganda by the regime such

US military was responsible for bringing
