    To try to break out of it, Biden’s campaign has gone on the offensive. On Sunday, he issued a statement condemning violence “of every kind by anyone, whether on the left or the right” and challenging Trump to do the same. On Monday he drove home the point: “This president long ago forfeited any moral leadership in this country. He can’t stop the violence because for years he’s fomented it.” Biden is right. However violence plays politically, the reality is that only one of the two candidates cheers it. Trump has urged his fans to thuggery since his first presidential...
  • Inside the Trump campaign's struggle to land a punch on Biden

    07/17/2020 7:48:07 AM PDT · by MarvinStinson · 39 replies
    President Donald Trump's political advisers have bluntly told him he can't win the November election if the campaign is about him, and for weeks they unsuccessfully urged him to pivot to a new strategy focused on his general election opponent, Joe Biden. Trump finally appeared to heed the advice Tuesday, although the setting and the tone of the political broadside may not have been what his advisers had envisioned. Trump's remarks, which mentioned Biden 31 times, were monotone, and the backdrop — the White House Rose Garden — was a break from longtime presidential efforts to separate official and re-election...
  • Trump flew into a rage every time US intelligence warned him about Russia, so officials gave up briefing him on it, report says [Leftwing Rag Business Insider]

    President Donald Trump was briefed less and less with warnings about Russia's behavior toward the US because he would get angry when presented with intelligence about it, CNN reported on Wednesday. Early in Trump's presidency, officials learned to limit their verbal briefings on the topic and would often see their written materials ignored, former administration officials told CNN's Jim Sciutto. "The president has created an environment that dissuades, if not prohibits, the mentioning of any intelligence that isn't favorable to Russia," a former senior national security staffer told CNN. John Ratcliffe, the director of national intelligence, who started in May,...

    President Trump’s reelection campaign has announced a staff shakeup just over four months before the general election as polls show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden. Michael Glassner, who organizes Trump’s rallies, is being reassigned to a legal role within the campaign, and Jeff DeWit, a former Arizona state treasurer and Trump's 2016 Arizona chair, will come on as chief operating officer. The shakeup, which was first reported by Axios and confirmed by a campaign official to The Hill, comes after a rally two weekends ago in Tulsa, Okla., where the president garnered embarrassing headlines after being unable to...

    **SNIP** MSNBC’s Ari Melber picked up on those comments in his interview with Schiff. “If this rolls back one of the convictions, one of the legal victories of the Mueller probe,” Melber began, “and the president gets away with this and continues and Bill Barr says out in the open, well, might makes right, the victors write history, not something we are supposed to hear from a nonpartisan Justice Department, what do you say to people who are concerned that the president is basically getting away with it all?” “First of all, I would say to Bill Barr, you can’t...

    The CCP virus was not manmade or genetically modified, U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the head of the U.S. intelligence community (IC), said the community “concurs with the wide scientific consensus that the COVID-19 virus was not manmade or genetically modified.” The office did not say how it came to the conclusion. “The IC will continue to rigorously examine emerging information and intelligence to determine whether the outbreak began through contact with infected animals or if it was the result of an accident at a laboratory in Wuhan,” the office said in...

    The thing about R0 values is that they are averages. And to explain why that makes a difference, we need to talk about Coronaviruses. Before 2019-nCoV, the most notorious Coronaviruses were MERS and SARS. MERS, or Middle East respiratory syndrome, has had several small outbreaks since it was first discovered in 2012, and while very severe in terms of mortality (the case fatality rate is around 30 to 40 percent), the virus’s R0 is very low. And then there’s SARS. Because while SARS, or Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome, caused a huge uproar in its heyday of 2002-3, good old fashioned...

    BEIJING, Jan. 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese provinces and municipalities reported Thursday that more patients infected with novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) have recovered and left hospitals. Four patients who had been infected with the virus in east China's Jiangxi Province have recovered and been discharged from hospitals on Thursday, following three other recovery cases reported before. Zhang Wei, an expert with the Jiangxi provincial emergency headquarters on epidemic prevention and control, said that based on analysis of the cured patients, early detection and timely treatment are key to their recovery. Southwest China's Sichuan Province reported its first patient recovering from the novel...
  • No, the 2019-nCoV [coronavirus] genome doesn’t really seem engineered from HIV

    They found that all four of these spike protein inserts appear as matches to at least one sequence in at least one variant of the HIV virus. The sequences come from the gp120 and Gag proteins in HIV, the former of which is also a viral envelope recognition protein. This has led many to credulously assume that this is evidence, or even a strong indication, that 2019-nCoV was engineered from its bat ancestor by humans inserting HIV sequences. But they’re wrong; it’s still not engineered. An analysis of the paper clearly reveals that: 1. There is nothing remarkable about the...
  • Poll: 31% of Republicans Support ‘Medicare for All’

    A new Morning Consult poll shows that “Medicare for All” falls just short of majority support (47%) — but that 31% of Republicans support the policy, which is being championed by socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and other 2020 Democratic candidates. The poll, which surveyed 6,600 adults and has a margin of error of 1%, showed broad majorities support some form of federal health insurance that would be available to all Americans, though support was higher for policies that would be optional. Morning Consult noted that support for “Medicare for All” had fallen since the 2018 midterm elections, thanks in...
  • Obama: We’ve Made Health Care ‘More Affordable for All Americans’

    During Saturday’s Weekly Address, President Obama touted the 21st Century Cures Act, and stated that over the last eight years we’ve made health care “more affordable for all Americans.” Transcript as Follows: “Hi, everybody. On the first day of my administration, I promised to restore science to its rightful place. I told you we would unleash American innovation and technology to tackle the health challenges of our time. Over the last eight years, we’ve delivered on that promise in many ways, both big and small — including, of course, providing health coverage to 20 million more Americans, and making health...

    I turn on the news and want to scream – another poll with Hillary Clinton in the lead! How? She's all but dropped out of the race, and a new Clinton scandal breaks every half-hour. So how is she winning? It makes my head spin. Hillary disappears – her numbers go up. She mishandles classified information and breaks the law – her numbers go up. She's nailed for her Clinton Foundation pay-to-play scheme – her numbers go up. I feel as though I've been blindfolded and spun in circles, confused, off-balance, questioning reality

    In the old movie, Gaslight, a woman is driven mad by her husband. He convinces her that she is imagining things. He keeps lighting a gas lamp in the house, causing the other lamps to become dimmer. When the wife confronts him about this, he repeatedly tells her that it’s all in her imagination and that the lamps are most assuredly not dimmer. Over time, the victim begins to doubt her own perceptions of reality, accepting that her husband must be right. His goal was to gain control over her fortune. Experts who work with emotional abuse victims recognize gaslighting—oppressors...
