5-term Rep. Tipton backed by Trump loses in Colorado primary, upset by businesswoman Lauren Boebert

Loren Boebert usets Trump backed candidate in ColoradoFive-term Rep. Scott Tipton was upset in Tuesday’s Republican Party primary by Lauren Boebert, a pistol-packing businesswoman, ardent defender of gun rights and border wall supporter who wants to abolish the Department of Education.

Boebert won after a campaign in which she accused Tipton of not being sufficiently pro-Donald Trump even though the president had endorsed Tipton, and even though Tipton is the Trump campaign’s co-chair for Colorado. Trump congratulated Boebert on Twitter, saying, "Congratulations on a really great win."

She will run in November’s general election against Diane Mitsch Bush, a former state lawmaker who won the Democratic nomination on Tuesday by defeating businessman James Iacino. Tipton defeated Mitsch Bush in the 2018 election to represent the 3rd Congressional District, which encompasses a swath of southern and western Colorado.

TVNL Comment:  Boebert is a QAnon extremist of the worst kind.  The November election should be interesting.


Despite warnings, the US wasn’t prepared with masks for coronavirus. Now it’s too late.

Covid masks

While treating coronavirus patients in one of the busiest emergency rooms in Manhattan, Dr. Jason Hill wore the same disposable respirator mask for up to four shifts in a row.

He’d take the mask home from Columbia University Medical Center, his coffee-flavored breath clinging to its fibers. Then he’d bake it in the oven to kill any viral hitchhikers. A half hour at 140 degrees.

For months as the virus filled hospitals in New York and across the nation, doctors, nurses and other medical workers were forced to risk their lives in similar ways – sharing protective gear, reusing masks, or going without – simply because there weren’t enough to go around.

"Wear a face covering when you go out in public. It is not an inconvenience. It is not a suppression of your freedom. It actually Is a vehicle to achieve our goals," Adams said during a briefing with members of the White House coronavirus task force.


Judge blocks release of book by Trump's niece

Mary Trump

A New York state judge has issued a temporary restraining order against a book President Donald Trump’s niece Mary intended to publish next month offering an unflattering account of her relationship with the president, his father Fred Jr. and other family members.

Poughkeepsie-based Supreme Court Justice Hal Greenwald issued the order Tuesday at the request of President Trump’s brother Robert, who claims the book violates a non-disclosure agreement that was part of the settlement of Fred Trump’s estate following his death in 1999.

The book--titled, "Too Much and Never Enough: How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man”--is not set for release until July 28, but the restraining order blocks publisher Simon & Schuster from printing or distributing it in any fashion while the judge considers issuing a longer-term injunction.
