That's what I've bn wondering, Lizzie, and I was talking to a friend in the States yesterday about it - can't help thinking that most of them know stuff they can't talk about.

This is Christopher Miller, Trump appointee and 'acting' Secretary of Defence getting confused with his own evidence}

There are reports of some opening doors for people, and also helping people get to Washington.
The republicans want to take the house back so they don't want their actions to be told.

Annemarie - They know that if everything comes out taking back the  House will be the least of their problems. More than a few of them could end up in jail. I hope the Democrats can find a way to investigate that will really get to the truth and get the traitors like Marjorie Taylor Greene out of our government.

More than 50 people have died in Germany as of Thursday night after severe floods in Western Europe devastated several areas of the country.
Over the past 24 hours, officials have determined that 58 people died across the nation and 1,300 are missing, The Washington Post and New York Times reported on Thursday.
At least 11 people in Belgium have died as a result of the extreme weather, officials said, the New York Times and BBC reported. The flooding has also affected the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and warnings were issued in areas of France.
In addition to lives lost, the flooding washed some people's homes away, while some German citizens have been left awaiting rescue from their rooftops. Power and cell phone signals were cut off in dozens of communities.

Firefighters, helicopter personnel, police, emergency responders and military are working in a joint effort to save those reported missing, according to the New York Times.

Germany floods



German Chancellor Angela Merkel — who is visiting President Joe Biden at the White House — said in a press conference that she was "shocked" by the extreme flooding.
"My sympathy goes to the relatives of the dead and missing," she said. "I grieve for those who have lost their lives in this disaster."
Merkel, 66, added, "We still don't know the number. But it will be many."

Germany floods

"Heavy rain and flooding' doesn't capture what happened," she said of the natural disaster.
The downpour of rain marked levels of precipitation that have not been recorded in some areas for 100 years, German weather service spokesperson Andreas Friedrich told CNN. "In some areas we've seen more than double the amount of rainfall which has caused flooding and unfortunately some building structures to collapse," he said.
Activists, politicians and other leaders have connected the extreme weather to climate change. The catastrophe occurred just days after the European Union announced its goal to cut the use of fossil fuels and greenhouse gases by 55 percent by 2030, the New York Times reported.



Climate activist Greta Thunberg tweeted, "Deadly heatwaves, floods, storms, wildfires, droughts, crop failures... This is not 'the new normal'. We're at the very beginning of a climate and ecological emergency, and extreme weather events will only become more and more frequent."
European Union Commission President Ursula von der Leyen expressed her condolences to those affected by the severe flooding and vowed to support the nations affected.
"My thoughts are with the families of the victims of the devastating floods in Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands and those who have lost their homes," she tweeted. "The E.U. is ready to help."

BERLIN — At least 95 people are dead and about 1,300 are missing after devastating floods swept across a swath of Western Europe on Thursday, engulfing whole villages in raging muddy brown waters, overturning cars and forcing residents to evacuate.



Local media reported Friday that at least 81 people had died in Germany, by far the worst-hit country, where whole villages were cut off from rescuers and helicopters were deployed to pluck the stranded off rooftops. Some houses were simply washed away as a tributary of the Rhine burst its banks.


Divers were deployed to retrieve bodies from flooded houses. Speaking to German radio on Friday, Roger Lewentz, the interior minister for Rhineland-Palatinate, said families had gone to scoop water out of basements in initial flooding, only to be trapped by surging waters.





At least 14 people were killed in Belgium, a spokesman of the interior ministry said Friday, as the prime minister appealed for international aid. Severe flooding also impacted the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Switzerland, and warnings were issued in more than a dozen regions of France.

Fears remain that the death toll could climb significantly, with so many reported missing.

Officials stressed on Thursday that the high number of those unaccounted for could be due to the fact that mobile phone networks had been crippled. More than 1,000 rescue operations had taken place in the district since Thursday morning, they said.

Thousands had bedded down for the night in makeshift shelters at gyms or with relatives after being evacuated from their homes over concern that, with the threat of more rainfall, flooding could spread and dams could collapse.





Speaking from Washington, where she is on an official visit to meet with President Biden, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that phrases such as “heavy rain” and “flood” were insufficient to describe the level of tragedy.

“In these hours, peaceful places are experiencing a catastrophe,” she said, describing her shock at seeing reports of people stranded on rooftops in extreme need.

“I mourn those who lost their lives in this disaster,” she said. “We don’t know the number yet. But there’ll be many.”

Scenes of destruction from the deadly floods

Some people drowned in the cellars of their houses, she said, and firefighters died while trying to rescue those stranded.

The extraordinary deluge of rain — at levels not seen in the area in the summer for at least 100 years — triggered calls to speed up action against climate change and boost flood protection amid erratic weather events. It came just a day after the European Union announced ambitious plans to reduce net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent below 1990 levels within less than a decade.




(The Washington Post)


In the worst-hit parts of Germany, the rainfall in just 24 hours was double the normal long-term average for the entire month of July, according to the Deutscher Wetterdienst, Germany’s meteorological agency.





At least 28 people died in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, authorities said. In the region known for its wine growing, villages along the Ahr valley were swallowed by floodwaters. As many as 18 people died in the district of Ahrweiler, police said. Earlier in the day, local police said that as many as 50 residents were trapped on the roofs of their homes awaiting rescue.

Videos show city streets turned into swirling rivers and others engulfed by landslides. Cars were scooped up and tossed aside in crumpled wrecks. From the air, some villages appeared to have almost completely disappeared, only the tops of houses poking out from the floodwaters.

“Entire villages are flooded,” Malu Dreyer, the premier of Rhineland-Palatinate, said in a speech to the local parliament. “Houses float away just like that.”





Helicopters have been deployed for rescues, she added.

Police created a hotline for residents to report missing people, as rescue boats struggled to reach the area due to strong currents. “The consequences are devastating, and our first priority is still to save lives,” Jürgen Pföhler, the county commissioner of the Ahrweiler district, said at a news conference. “All our efforts are concentrated on that.”

The area was declared a disaster zone.

In the neighboring state of North Rhine-Westphalia, the death toll had climbed to 30, according to the state’s Interior Ministry. The army deployed tanks and trucks to the city of Hagen, where three bridges were destroyed, to clear roads of rubble and debris.

In the western state’s Euskirchen district, authorities said at least 15 people were killed. More than 4,500 people were evacuated from a string of villages after experts deemed a nearby dam unstable.





More buildings completely or partially collapsed in Erftstadt-Blessem, just outside the German city of Cologne on Friday morning, local authorities said.

“Only some people can be rescued with boats or rescuers,” the district posted on Facebook, adding that air rescues had to be stopped at around 9:45 p.m. Thursday due to the weather. Several people there remain missing.

“Many people are currently still in their homes,” it continued. “Rescue is often not possible. The infrastructure has failed, on-site hospital operations are no longer possible and several nursing homes are being cleared.”

Emergency responders in the city of Solingen rescued about 130 people. “We got people out with aerial ladders, boats, buoys. It was all improvised,” a spokesman for the fire department told German news channel WDR.





Two firefighters sent to assist those trapped by rising waters in the Sauerland region died, according to the German news agency DPA.

The country’s biggest power distribution company, Westnetz, estimated Thursday that around 200,000 homes were without electricity as a result of the widespread flooding.

On Wednesday, the German weather service issued an extreme weather alert — a warning that environmental expert Bernd Mehlig said was “completely unusual in summer.”

The deluge unfolded as a plume of deep moisture, sourced from the Mediterranean, surged into Central Europe.

A high-pressure zone over the eastern Atlantic, offshore France and the United Kingdom, acted as a pump, steering the moisture plume through France into Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany.



That was flanked by an unusually intense zone of low pressure to the east over Central Europe, which helped generate the downpours.



The low was sandwiched between another area of high pressure over Eastern Europe, creating a weather system traffic jam that has allowed heavy rain to persist.

Computer models showed moisture levels in the atmosphere were comparable to those seen along the U.S. Gulf Coast during hurricane landfalls.

The exceptional intensity of the rainfall is consistent with what scientists anticipate with rising temperatures caused by human-induced climate change. Fred Hattermann, a hydrologist at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, said such flooding incidents are happening “more often and more intensely” due to climate change.



The duration and frequency of such floods is likely to increase, he said. “What I fear most is that we will see things we never imagined.”

A warmer atmosphere can hold more moisture, which then comes down as heavy rain, Hattermann said.



Higher temperatures also speed up evaporation, placing more water in the atmosphere for the kind of downpours that have occurred. A recent study in the Journal of Climate anticipates “large magnitude increases” in extreme precipitation in much of Europe in the coming decades.

While some commentators said it was a taste of the “new normal,” climate activist Greta Thunberg said there would be worse to come.

“This is not ‘the new normal,’ ” she wrote on Twitter. “We’re at the very beginning of a climate and ecological emergency, and extreme weather events will only become more and more frequent.”

Hannah Cloke, a professor of hydrology at the University of Reading in Britain, said warning signs abounded. “Forecasters could see this heavy rain coming and issued alerts early in the week, and yet the warnings were not taken seriously enough and preparations were inadequate,” she said.

“For so many people to die in floods in Europe in 2021 represents a monumental failure of the system,” she added. “These kind of high-energy, sudden summer torrents of rain are exactly what we expect in our rapidly heating climate. The fact that other parts of the Northern Hemisphere are currently suffering record-breaking heat waves and fires should serve as a reminder of just how much more dangerous our weather could become in an ever-warmer world.”

Steffen Seibert, a spokesman for the German government, said the severe flooding was “terrible.”

“Even though not every event, not every flooding or local incident, is related to climate change, many scientists tell us that the frequency, the intensity and the regularity with which this happens is a consequence of climate change,” he said.

Armin Laschet, the leader of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia who is vying to take over from Merkel in September elections, said more preparations for such extreme weather events are needed.

“We will be faced with such events over and over, and that means we need to speed up climate protection measures, on European, federal and global levels, because climate change isn’t confined to one state,” he said.

Parts of the Netherlands were also flooded, with a red-code warning issued for Limburg province. Local media reported that many people were forced to evacuate and as many as 400 homes were without power.

Switzerland also issued travel and weather warnings this week as heavy rainfall and thunderstorms brought flooding to the city of Zurich.

The mayor of Liege in Belgium said those among its 200,000 residents who could leave the city should do so and that those who could not should move to the upper floors in their homes. One person died in the city and four others were killed in the Belgian district of Verviers.

Earlier this week in Britain, flash floods sparked widespread travel chaos, with parts of London experiencing a month’s worth of rain in just one day. Locals were evacuated and cars became trapped as floodwaters continued to rise. Late last month, a tornado swept through the Czech Republic, killing at least five people — an extremely unusual weather event for Central Europe.

Floodwaters in some areas began to recede later Thursday, but it was too early to assess the full toll of the flooding, with some areas still cut off from rescuers.

Yvonne Glasner from Dernau, in the Ahr valley, told Germany’s Die Welt newspaper that her family was forced to abandon their newly constructed home.

“We could never have imagined that the water would rise so quickly and so extremely,” she said. “Now we are worried that we won’t be able to live in our new house at all.”

She said that she had not been able to contact her in-laws for hours but had seen their car float past. She said she hoped they were awaiting rescue on a rooftop.

As summer travel gets back into full swing amid lessened COVID regulations, jet setters are warned against traveling to certain international destinations.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the State Department have issued travel advisories for Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Kyrgyzstan, as COVID cases escalate in those countries.
The CDC has raised the advisory to "Level Four: Very High," recommending that Americans avoid travel to these locations, for which they note "even fully vaccinated travelers may be at risk for getting and spreading COVID-19 variants." In addition to the CDC's "Level Four" advisory, the State Department also issued "Do Not Travel" advisories, which are the highest advisories for each department.

The new advisories came as the CDC also escalated Cuba to "Level Four," following the lead of the State Department, who already classified the island nation as "Do Not Travel."
Meanwhile, the CDC has raised Armenia and Israel, the West Bank and Gaza to "Level Three: High," noting that "unvaccinated travelers should avoid nonessential travel" to those destinations, which the State Department has also put at "Level 3: Reconsider Travel."
With the United Kingdom recently raised to "Level Four" as well, the White House said on Friday that the United States will not lift travel restrictions on incoming tourism "at this point," as the highly contagious Delta variant continues to spread across the country.

"Given where we are today with the Delta variant, the United States will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point," White House spokesperson Jen Psaki said. "Driven by the Delta variant, cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated, and [they] appear likely to continue to increase in the weeks ahead."
Air travel previously reached a pandemic-era high, with more than 7.1 million people passing through airport security over Memorial Day weekend, which was up nearly 450 percent from the same weekend in 2020.

[size=48]CDC to Recommend Indoor Mask Wearing for Some Vaccinated People Due to Breakthrough Cases[/size]
The CDC is expected to change its policy on mask wearing for vaccinated individuals, and to suggest everyone in K-12 schools wear a mask

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is expected to announce a change to its mask-wearing protocols.
On Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky is scheduled to provide updated guidance, saying that some individuals who have received the COVID-19 vaccine in certain areas of the country — determining factors have yet to be announced — should resume wearing masks in select situations to protect against the illness.
The announcement would mark a reversal of the organization's guidance from May 13 that only unvaccinated individuals needed to wear face coverings while in public.
In a tweet, CBS News' Senior National & Environmental Correspondent Ben Tracy confirmed the news. "BREAKING: @CBSNews confirms the CDC will announce this afternoon that fully vaccinated Americans should return to wearing masks in indoor public settings due to the spread of the #DeltaVariant," he wrote.

Elsewhere, citing a health official, CNN's Chief White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins said that the CDC is also expected to recommend today that school-aged children wear masks in class when they return to school this fall — regardless of their vaccination status.

Earlier this year, the CDC had stated that in most cases, Americans who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 could be indoors or outdoors without masks or social distancing.

At the time, the announcement marked a major shift in public health guidance after a year of living with the pandemic. The CDC cited strong protection from the vaccines and the steep decline in new COVID-19 cases in that announcement, which was before the delta variant of COVID had taken hold.

Now, the updated rules expected from the CDC come as the delta variant is gaining traction throughout the country.
White House chief medical advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci previously said that the CDC was determining whether or not to update its face-covering guidance for vaccinated individuals on Sunday.
Noting that it was "under active consideration," Fauci, 80, told CNN, "It's a dynamic situation. It's a work in progress, it evolves like in so many other areas of the pandemic. You've got to look at the data."
Never miss a story — sign up for PEOPLE's free daily newsletter to stay up-to-date on the best of what PEOPLE has to offer, from juicy celebrity news to compelling human interest stories.
Guidance from the CDC comes as only a recommendation, CNBC reported. States and local officials will be in charge of whether or not they choose to adopt the new mask rules.
People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna's vaccine, or two weeks after the single-dose Johnson & Johnson shot. Currently, the CDC says that more than 163 million Americans have been fully vaccinated, while more than 188 million Americans have received at least one dose of a COVID vaccine.

I wish the cdc would get their act together. How could you not know people that are vaccinated can still get and spred covid.
this whole thing is ridiculous common sense it's a shot that they say you won't get as sick if you get covid or delta. It is not a cure. I have no plans to take off my mask now or in the near future.

Annemarie - They do have their act together. This virus was new to them. How could they know that new variants could appear so quickly and spread so fast? Most vaccines are one or two shots and you're done - you're protected. This seems to be different and the CDC is informing us of what they learn as they learn it.

You're right. It's not a cure. It's a shot that will keep you from getting so sick that you end up in the hospital or die. Wearing a mask is annoying, but I'll wear one until the CDC tells me not to.
