Sinclair host spends weeks attacking Biden’s health in programming airing across the country

ERIC BOLLING (HOST): Just six week until we find out whether Donald Trump gets a second term or Joe Biden gets a first. Biden is ahead in the polls, but as you know, polls don’t mean much to me, they never have. Yet, he leads. There is something that’s happening that we need to highlight, though. Something the polls can’t show. Something that is extremely important to the country. It’s also something I highlighted here months ago. I’ve noticed a very troublesome pattern with the former VP. Joe Biden struggles with numbers, and it appears to be getting worse. Much worse. 

BOLLING: Look, I don’t find this funny, it’s not cute, and I’m not playing these clips to embarrass Mr. Biden. However, I do think it’s important to highlight a man clearly struggling with comprehension — especially when that man in question wants to be president of our country, the most powerful person on the planet, the same man who wants us to hand him the reins to lead America into battle against a very hostile world. China wants nothing more to their core than to overtake the U.S. as the world’s most powerful economy. Russia, Iran, and North Korea, among others would love to see us fail too. So highlighting Biden’s slipping capacity isn’t unfair, it’s actually a public service. 

This is simply not OK. Again, I’m not making fun of this guy. I’m not that guy. But Biden is becoming more and more incoherent as we approach the most important election of our lifetime, and still he leads in the polls.

BOLLING: Congressman, I just did a monologue about Joe Biden may be not fit for office. What do you say?

REP. DEVIN NUNES (R-CA): Well look, it kind of seems like he’s an avatar,

Pakistan’s the latest country to ban China-owned app TikTok

Pakistan officials have announced a ban on TikTok after receiving complaints of unlawful content on the popular short-form video-sharing app. It’s the latest country to block the app after India instituted a similar ban and the U.S. attempted to do the same because of a squabble over who owns TikTok’s American business, which is currently the Beijing-based Bytedance.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority said in a statement Friday that it came to the decision after TikTok failed to censor “immoral and indecent” content on its platform, the Associated Press reports. After receiving several complaints and petitions calling for the app to be banned, the authority gave TikTok a final warning in July to meet its guidelines and take down unlawful content (the Muslim-majority country has several media regulations intended to preserve conservative values), which the company purportedly failed to do.

“We have been asking them repeatedly to put in place an effective mechanism for blocking immoral and indecent content,” an official involved in the decision told Reuters.

The ban may not be permanent though; the PTA said in Friday’s statement that it’s “open for engagement” with TikTok and would review its decision should the company beef up its content moderation systems. The dating apps Tinder and Grindr also received bans last month over similar issues.

TikTok has become wildly popular all over the world since it launched outside of China in 2017, and Pakistan is no exception. The app reported 20 million monthly active users there and was the country’s third most downloaded app over the last year after WhatsApp and Facebook, a PTA spokesperson told Reuters.

But over the last year or so several countries have begun to push back against several Chinese owned

Emergency 911 dispatch outages reported at multiple police departments across the country

Agencies from Arizona to Florida reported outages that typically lasted about 30 minutes before being restored.
The 911 problems occurred the same night that widespread outages were reported for Microsoft services.
Microsoft 365 services are coming back after major outage
Redmond, Washington — home of Microsoft’s headquarters — tweeted Monday that city phones and emails were also experiencing outages.
The service health status page for Microsoft Azure — the company’s cloud computing service — posted, “A subset of customers in the Azure Public and Azure Government clouds may encounter errors performing authentication operations for a number of Microsoft or Azure services.” Microsoft said customers “should see signs of recovery.”
A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office in Hennepin County, Minnesota, told CNN they were not sure whether their 911 outage was related to the Microsoft issue.
The New York Police Department told CNN that while their 911 services had no reported outages, they did experience issues with Microsoft accounts.

According to an internal memo shared by a senior NYPD official, department employees were not able to log into Microsoft email accounts from department desktops, but could still access email accounts through iPhones and iPads.

According the memo, which was sent out to all members of the department around 8:15 p.m., “the problem is due to a worldwide Microsoft issue,” and that “Microsoft engineers are currently investigating.”

It is unclear if the 911 problems and outages were related and the source of the 911 outages has not yet been identified.
