Trump returns to Rose Garden to claim ‘China will own US’ if he’s not re-elected

Posted on

Donald Trump returned to the White House Garden following his hospitalisation with the coronavirus to declare that if he loses his re-election in 20 days, “China will own the United States.”

He delivered a virtual address on Wednesday after hosting a likely “super-spreader” ceremony at the Rose Garden to announce his Supreme Court nominee last month.

In his remarks, the president attacked his Democratic opponent Joe Biden, who the president claimed will oversee economic devastation and “punish” workers, as millions of Americans continue to file for unemployment benefits eight months into a pandemic that has killed more than 200,000 Americans and shuttered businesses in the economic fallout.

The president – speaking with a raspy voice following his illness and return to campaign rallies – told members of the Economic Clubs of New York, Florida, Washington DC, Chicago, Pittsburgh and Sheboygan that the election is a “simple” choice between “historic prosperity”

Boparan, who bought Carluccio’s in May, has bought 35 of the burger restaurant’s sites. However, under the pre-pack administration deal, 26 other sites will close, with the loss of 362 jobs.

The burger chain, which was owned by the South African company Famous Brands, which also owns Wimpy in the UK, was put on the market as it struggled amid the pandemic and high street lockdown.

But Gourmet Burger Kitchen has been in difficulties since a restructuring deal with landlords in 2018 under which it agreed to close up to 17 sites after the casual dining market became oversaturated.

Gavin Maher, a partner at Deloitte who was appointed joint administrator on Wednesday, said: “The broader

Community garden provides a model for what could be

Posted on

In the dead of winter when nothing is growing on the Northern Plains, our modern food system bring us produce from the “Smile” of southern states from California to the East Coast, as well as all the way down through Mexico and South America. I appreciate the accessibility of year-round fresh produce that my ancestors never had.

Gardening alongside farming rooted a rural way of life for generations before me. Modern-day rural life allowed me to give up gardening four or five years ago while juggling kids’ schedules and a heavier workload and rely on farmers markets and on my grocery store for fresh produce. And while I have missed the beauty of canned vegetables, fruits and sauces on my pantry shelf, I haven’t missed the work of “putting up a garden” this time of year as my ancestors did to feed their families through the winter.

Greenwood, SC man guilty of trying to molest boy in Walmart

Posted on

A man received the maximum prison sentence after trying to molest a child in a Walmart bathroom in Greenwood, South Carolina, according to a prosecutor.

Tuesday, 52-year-old Donald Allen Morrison, a registered sex offender, of Trenton in Edgefield County pleaded guilty in a Greenwood County courtroom to a crime that Eight Circuit Solicitor Donald Stumbo called “predatory.”

In June 2019, Morrison attempted to bribe a young boy in a Walmart bathroom to touch him inappropriately, Stumbo said. He also tried to touch the boy. The boy refused and tried to get away, but Morrison held the boy and wouldn’t let him go until the boy threatened to tell his mother.

Greenwood Police Department officers were called and got a description of Morrison and the vehicle he was driving. Officers found Morrison driving near a different Walmart in Greenwood and pulled him over, prosecutors said, and he admitted to grabbing the
