    Five studies, including two controlled clinical trials, have demonstrated significant major outpatient treatment efficacy. Hydroxychloroquine+azithromycin has been used as standard-of-care in more than 300,000 older adults with multicomorbidities, with estimated proportion diagnosed with cardiac arrhythmias attributable to the medications 47/100,000 users, of which estimated mortality is <20%, 9/100,000 users, compared to the 10,000 Americans now dying each week. These medications need to be widely available and promoted immediately for physicians to prescribe.

    A total lack of leadership. Either the very weak Radical Left Mayor, Jacob Frey, get his act together and bring the City under control, or I will send in the National Guard & get the job done right.....Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump ....These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen. Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!

    Tracy Doherty was let go from her job as a pediatric nurse at Valley View Hospital in early May. The hospital’s CEO is projecting $30-45 million in lost income this year, which led to staff cuts. ... Her line of work usually comes with some stability, so she was surprised when she was laid off earlier this month. “Being a nurse you kind of never expect to lose your job,” Doherty said. “I knew they were going to be cutting staff, but I didn't think it would be nursing staff.” Valley View let go of about 100 employees, or roughly...

    The relationship between Communist China and the free world, particularly the United States, is disintegrating so quickly that it’s hard to keep up. Yesterday, there was a big development in the ongoing dispute over Chinese technology giant Huawei. Back in 2018, the CFO of Huawei, Meng Wanzhou, was arrested in Canada at the request of the U.S. government. The U.S. is seeking to extradite her so she can face charges here for inducing a group of banks to violate sanctions the U.S. placed on Iran. Wednesday a court in Canada ruled that Wanzhou’s extradition met the standard of “double...

    Deep State operatives are leaking false stories on the Flynn-Kislyak transcripts ahead of a huge release in order to control the narrative. Former Acting DNI Ric Grenell already declassified the Flynn transcripts and John Ratcliffe, who was sworn is as the new Director of National Intelligence is set to release the transcripts soon! So now the Deep State is working with the media to spin, spin, spin. NBC News hack Geoff Bennett reported on Thursday afternoon that according to a ‘former Trump admin official,’ the Flynn-Kislyak calls that Grenell declassified are written summaries of the calls, not audiotapes. Deep State...

    On Memorial Day, in Central Park, a white woman—derisively dubbed “Karen” before she was doxed as New York City resident Amy Cooper—lost her cool after being confronted by an apparently outraged birdwatcher (a black man) named Christian Cooper (no relation). After threatening Amy Cooper’s dog (by his own admission), and telling her that he would do something “you’re not going to like,” Christian Cooper began to record the visibly distraught dogwalker, who then called the police, emphasizing the race of the man she claimed was harassing her. Christian Cooper’s video was posted online, and, within hours, a Twitter mob had...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman says his office is working on the George Floyd investigation as quickly as possible, but that it will take some time. At a press conference Thursday afternoon, Freeman called the fatal arrest of George Floyd Monday a “senseless death” and that his heart is with the family of Floyd. Freeman added that his office leads the nation in transparency in these types of cases, and was one of the few offices to successfully convict officers for unreasonable use of deadly force. Freeman said, however, it will take time to complete the case....

    In a major development, Judicial Watch forced the declassification and release of an FBI memo or “electronic communication” (EC) that officially launched the counterintelligence investigation, termed “Crossfire Hurricane,” of President Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

    On Thursday afternoon, Rev. Al Sharpton held a prayer vigil at the site where George Floyd died after he was pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police officers. Sharpton, a civil rights leader and Baptist minister, has previously spoken on the topic of police violence against African-Americans – notably about the death of Eric Garner, who was choked to death by an NYPD officer in 2014. Garner’s last words, just like Floyd’s, were “I can’t breathe.” Standing amidst a crowd on the corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue, Sharpton was joined by Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr. In 2014, Sharpton...

    NBC is prohibiting reporters from using the word “riot” in its coverage of violent outbursts in Minnesota that have occurred in response to the killing of George Floyd. “While the situation on the ground in Minneapolis is fluid, and there has been violence, it is most accurate at this time to describe what is happening there as ‘protests’–not riots,” NBC host Craig Melvin wrote on Twitter Thursday.

    The pandemic has slowed much American police work, but police are still working. “As of May 17, 375 people had been shot and killed by on-duty police officers in 2020—about the same rate as other recent years despite the coronavirus pandemic,” Wesley Lowery, who helped track killings at The Washington Post, observed on Tuesday. Just a day before, a 46-year-old black man named George Floyd was killed by a white Minneapolis police officer who pinned him to the ground, kneeling on his neck for five minutes. Floyd’s last words were captured in a video on Facebook: “Don’t kill me” and...
