UPDATE: New York City Mayor de Blasio announced he will be reopening the city’s elementary schools in a complete reversal from an earlier decision to close all schools in the country’s largest school district.

Leave it up to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio to make a situation go from bad to worse, particularly for parents in the city. Earlier this week, he told millions of parents that he will “keep re-opening schools” even though he shut down the largest district days before to mitigate a resurgence of COVID-19.

A reporter called out asking, “this morning you said that when we get into December, we’re going to start re-opening schools. Can you clarify what that means?”

“I spoke to this yesterday, we’re going to be in an orange zone until December, the orange zone rules for opening schools are very clear, they’re very stringent but we can meet that standard but it’s going to take a lot of work and like I said parents got to be really involved but we can do it,” de Blasio said.

“We’re going to start with the special education district 75 schools, work our way up pre-K, three K and elementary,” he added about reopening schools. “It’s going to take a lot of work that we never had to do on this level before so we’re shifting a lot of testing resources over but we will keep reopening schools and we want to fight back this second wave, and as we fight it back successfully we’ll be able to speed up that process.”

All that talk left out the most important fact that days earlier he had closed down five boroughs, sending millions of children to attend schools at home and putting New York City parents in another predicament: how do you balance work and teach kids at home.

de Blasio took a moment to remember former NYC Mayor David Dinkins, who recently passed, saying he always spoke of “the power of love” for children, especially those of color.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
