EXCLUSIVE: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, in his upcoming memoir titled "Still Standing," dispenses scathing criticism of former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby and others over their handling of the city's 2015 riots, an event that foreshadowed the widespread racial unrest seen in other American cities in recent weeks. Several chapters addressing the 2015 riots were obtained by Fox News in advance of the book's publication later this month. The Republican governor describes the rapid mobilization of the state p...
The Trump administration has agreed to rescind rules it issued last week governing whether international students can enroll at U.S. universities this fall, settling a lawsuit filed by Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston federal court. The schools had asked for a temporary restraining order pausing enforcement of the policy. At a short hearing Tuesday afternoon, U.S. District Judge Allison D. Burroughs confirmed that a settlement had been reached. She said the government would rescind the policy, withdraw an FAQ detailing the rule and return to the status quo of guidance issued in the spring. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had issued regulations earlier this month limiting foreign students’ ability to take classes online...

Lily Ebert connected with the American family of the soldier who gave her hope upon being liberated during WWII over a Zoom call. A 90-year-old Holocaust survivor was finally able to thank the family of an American soldier who gave her hope upon being liberated from a Nazi death camp in World War II, 75 years on.

NSC recommends to prime minister that synagogues, yeshivot be closed entirely to prevent spread of coronavirus. The National Security Council (NSC) recommended in a discussion with Prime Minister Netanyahu that all synagogues and yeshivot be closed in response to the rapid spread of the coronavirus. The NSC also recommended that the opening of restaurants be limited to take-out and deliveries. Several of the participants in the discussion recommended the imposition of a full lockdown. However, Defense Minister Benny Gantz stated that two weeks had not passed since the last restrictions were imposed, so it was too soon to impose new restrictions. The meeting was also attended by Finance Minister Yisrael Katz, Health Minister Yuli Edelstein, Science and Technology Minister Yizhar Sha...

NEW YORK (Newsmax) – A disturbing new study reveals that people who are infected with COVID-19 could lose their immunity to the novel coronavirus within months. Researchers at King’s College London analyzed the blood of infected patients and healthcare workers and found that the levels of protective antibodies peaked about three weeks after the first symptoms appeared. However, those antibodies were found in only 17% of the patients three months later. According to The Daily Caller, in some patients, the antibodies were virtually undetectable. “People are producing a reasonable antibody response to the virus, but it’s waning over a short period of time and depending on how high your peak is, that determines how long the antibodies are staying around,” said D...

NEW YORK (Newsmax) – A group of Catholic churches around the country that were vandalized and burned over the weekend might be linked to the same George Floyd-related protests aimed at destroying symbols and statues. Black Lives Matter leaders have demanded the toppling of statues of former U.S. presidents, abolitionists and Confederate symbols following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Activist Shaun King went one step further and called for any image depicting a “White European” JC to be ripped down because they represent “White supremacy” and “racist propaganda.” Some on social media users have brought attention to the scarcity of coverage surrounding the church burnings “Churches are being burned to the ground. What?” ri...
TEHRAN (JNS) – The Iranian judiciary announced on Tuesday that it had executed a former defense ministry staffer who sold information to the CIA, Reuters reported. According to the report, based on Iranian news sources, judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili said that Reza Asgari had worked for the defense ministry for many years, when he developed connections with the CIA that continued after his retirement. He said that Asgari sold data related to Iran’s missile program to the U.S. intelligence agency. Esmaili pointed, as well, to another case—that of Mahmoud Mousavi-Majd, an Iranian accused of spying for the CIA and Israeli Mossad—who was sentenced to death for having “collected and transmitted intelligence” on the location of Islamic Revolutiona...

TORONTO (AP) — The U.S. and Canada are poised to extend their agreement to keep their shared border closed to non-essential travel to Aug. 21, but a final confirmation has not been given, a person familiar with the matter said Tuesday. The agreement would likely extend the closure by another 30 days. The official was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of an announcement this week, and spoke on condition of anonymity. The restrictions were announced on March 18 and were extended in April, May and June. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week that a decision on the border would be announced “in the coming days.” “We’re going to continue to work hard to keep Canadians safe and to keep our economies flowing and we will have more to say later t...
Former President Barack Obama on Monday said voting by mail shouldn’t be a partisan issue and that every voter should have a chance to do it, especially given the coronavirus crisis. “Voting by mail shouldn’t be a partisan issue — especially during a pandemic,” Obama tweeted. “Everybody should be able to request an absentee ballot, and make their voice heard in every election.” Democrats, including Obama, have touted mail-in voting as a public safety measure to prevent the spread of the coronavirus at the polls and a way to encourage voting among vulnerable populations.

President Donald Trump has been granted a second 45-day extension to file his personal financial disclosure forms, which give the American public its only detailed look at the president’s private business interests, according to a letter released by the White House. The forms are supposed to detail Trump’s income, debts, stock holdings and outstanding loans for the year 2019. They were originally due May 15, but Trump got an extension until the end of June. On June 29, then, Deputy Counsel to the President Scott Gast granted Trump a second extension, until August 13, according to the letter. Federal law allows only two such extensions. Gast’s letter said that the extension was given for “good cause,” but did not specify what that cause was. A White House sp...
The Tel Aviv District Court ruled on Monday against an Amnesty International petition to cancel the export license of the Israel-based technology company NSO Group, whose spyware, Pegasus, enables the remote surveillance of smartphones. Amnesty International filed the petition in January, claiming that “NSO Group, the Israeli company marketing its technology in the fight against COVID-19, contributed to a sustained campaign by the government of Morocco to spy on Moroccan journalist Omar Radi,” a human-rights activist critical of the powers-that-be in Rabat. The court explained its ruling in favor of NSO on the grounds that the granting of export licenses in Israel “is done after the most rigorous process,” and that even after even after an export license is grante...

Yerushalayim has started construction on parts of an NIS 3 billion (approximately $870 million) major highway that will eventually serve as a ring road around Israel’s largest city, with the goal of significantly alleviating traffic throughout the capital. At the same time, planners hope that the project will provide easier access for those entering or passing through the city from all sides. Building has already commenced on the southern and central sections of the Eastern spur of the highway, which consists of a three-pronged, 10-kilometer (6.2 miles) stretch of pavement known as “The American Road.” When fully completed, the road, which will include bridges and tunnels, will stretch from the Arab neighborhood of Tzur Baher in the southeast to the Naomi Shemer Tunnel i...
