Pastor as well as Republican Political candidate arrested for ‘for suspicion of being in violation of Moscow, Idaho’s mask/social distancing order’

Gabe Rench

What happened: A “psalm sing” attended by more than 100 people Wednesday in the Moscow, Idaho City Hall parking lot led to three arrests, including that of Latah County commission candidate Gabriel Rench.

Rench, a Moscow Republican running against incumbent Moscow Democrat Tom Lamar in November’s election, was one of five people cited by Moscow police for suspicion of being in violation of Moscow’s mask/social distancing order, according to Moscow Police Chief James Fry.

(D) Mayor of Moscow, Bill Lambert: We could find no comment from the Mayor on the arrest of Pastor Rench as of yet, only a recent press release in July stating, “I am proud to serve as the Mayor of Moscow, a culturally diverse and welcoming community.”

What we know: President Trump has set a cap of admitting no more than 15,000 refugees in fiscal year 2021, marking the lowest number since the U.S. created its modern refugee system 40 years ago. President Obama: Set the refugee limit at 110,000 for fiscal year 2017 — a number Trump has continued to cut throughout his presidency. In a statement, the State Department said the government will get more than 300,000 claims of humanitarian protection over the next year, but almost all of those will be asylum cases, which are filed by non citizens already in the U.S. Just 15,000 will be refugees, who apply from outside the country, seeking admittance and resettlement.
With the first 2020 Presidential debate in the books, it was clear to see President Trump was debating media lies for the past 4+ years as Joe Biden & Chris Wallace repeated those same lies during the debate. Fox News Debate host Chris Wallace yet again brought up 'white nationalists' and the 'far-right group' Proud Boys and asked Trump if he denounces them. (Trump has denounced the KKK as well as any form of group that is racist dozens of times when asked. Oddly enough, Joe Biden was just endorsed by Richard Spencer, a self-proclaimed white nationalist weeks ago. Chris must have forgotten. Also, last week Trump authorized Antifa and White Supremacists groups as Domestic Terrorists.) Wallace and Biden both repeated the "Very fine people on both sides" lie from the Charlottesville, Va incident that happened years ago. Of course, just like the media has done for years, refuse to...
What happened: Late last evening, House Minority leader (D) Nancy Pelosi unveiled a new, slimmed-down stimulus package of $2.2T. Their previous package proposal added up to $3.4T. This new package still may be too much for Republicans: Republicans have held firm they would be willing to agree to a new stimulus package in the range of $500B to $1T. President Trump a few weeks back seemingly upped that total to $1.5T. The $2.2 trillion revised bill includes new aid money for airlines and restaurants as well as more funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, another round of direct stimulus payments, $600 weekly federal unemployment benefits, and more state and local aid. If Pelosi and Mnuchin cannot reach a separate agreement before Wednesday, the House is expected to vote on the new bill despite a lack of Republican support. Even if the bill doesn’t advance to President Trump’s desk, vulnerable...
Some history of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's handling of nursing homes in New York State: Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been widely criticized (minus in the main stream media) for his handling of the state-regulated nursing homes, where at least 6,447 New Yorkers died during the health crisis. On Saturday, beachgoers in NYC and surrounding areas were greeted with: A banner on a propeller plan reading, “THE GOV KILLED NANA,” that flew across New York City and Long Island beaches. Andrew Cuomo has rejected an independent investigation into the handling of his nursing home executive order, and seemingly is safe from any investigation in New York State.
What Nancy Pelosi said today at a press conference when asked about her illegal salon visit yesterday: "I take responsibility for trusting the word of the neighborhood salon that I've been to, over the years, many times, and that when they said what we're able to accommodate people one person at a time, and that we can set up that time, I trusted that. As it turns out, that was the setup. So, I take responsibility for falling for a setup. And that's all I'm going to say on that." Pelosi also is requesting an apology from the salon: "I think that this salon owes me an apology, for setting me up." President Trump commented on the video tape via Twitter saying: Salon owner Erica Kious said last night: "It was a slap in the face that she went in, you know, that she feels that she can just go and...
