    Yes, it's true. This idiot bought hydroxychloroquine for his State.

    Idk maybe this was discussed back in the day but I never heard if it.
    Hey, if it's not useful for covid there are tons of other uses, this is a great buy! You know, what with all the malaria outbreaks in Oklahoma and what not.

    Just take one to the gut, admit you bought a transparent bad-egg, and donate it to health organizations that can use it to treat malaria and lupus etc.

    I will be so happy if the longest lasting part of the Trump administration is the use of "Scaramucci" as a measure of 10 days.

    Well it's also used to treat lupus, but I learned from Dr. House that it's never lupus.

    Shouldn't it actually be in negative days? Wasn't he fired before he formally got the position?

    151,727 new cases; about 39k fewer than last Wednesday. Nebraska hasn't reported yet but shouldn't add much.

    Top 5:

    Texas: 18,561 new cases; 457 deaths
    California: 11,247 new cases; 379 deaths
    New York: 11,231 new cases; 148 deaths
    Fuck Florida.
    Georgia: 6,384 new cases; 161 deaths

    As long as things continue to look better I'm going to continue scaling these back. It's easy to report when the numbers are going down the way they've been the past couple weeks. I don't have to try to pinpoint epicenters or note too many new records and by now most of you know which governors are being complete fuckheads--like Kristi Noem. And frankly, I'm tired. I've been doing this for most of a year, after all. I don't think we're anywhere near out of the woods yet, but I'm becoming more confident that we won't see 200-250k daily totals again and as long as those cases keep dropping deaths should drop as well.

    3,912 deaths is a little under 400 fewer than last Wednesday and brings the total to 439,517. Hard to say yet if this is the begin of the dip we've been expecting since new cases started dropping or if it's just an outlier. We'll know if the drop stays consistent over the course of the next few days.

    Related news:

    CDC: 100K Projected to Die of Coronavirus in Biden’s First Month in Office--On the surface this is bad news. 100k more deaths is going to be brutal. But considering the early projections were in the range of 150k I think we can consider this a small victory. I know the timing is pretty much pure coincidence, but the fact that cases started dropping almost immediately after Biden took office has to be rankling a large portion of the GOP who backed the TRUMP SHITSHOW for the past four years.

    Stay safe, folks.

    DHS issues domestic terror alert

    The Acting Secretary of Homeland Security has issued a National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) Bulletin due to a heightened threat environment across the United States, which DHS believes will persist in the weeks following the successful Presidential Inauguration. Information suggests that some ideologically-motivated violent extremists with objections to the exercise of governmental authority and the presidential transition, as well as other perceived grievances fueled by false narratives, could continue to mobilize to incite or commit violence.

    Why would it rankle the Trump cultists? They've been claiming forever that the COVID numbers are all made up in order to try and make Trump look bad before the election and would disappear right afterward.

    This will just reinforce that belief.

    Trump plans to have his lawyers write a letter in place of testimony in the upcoming impeachement triali.

    Because he fears taking the oath more than being faithful to his wife and because the Senate will allow it.

    He has a history of spilling the beans under oath...

    If he's participating through a letter, wouldn't he have to be sworn in, and how is allowed to elude cross examination?

    He is trying to pull a Bush, from the 9/11 commission:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/9/11_C...led_to_testify
    George W. Bush – President; testimony not under oath. The session was not officially transcribed because the White House considered it a "private meeting" in which highly classified information would be discussed. Asked to limit the length of testimony to one hour (However, the meeting lasted for three hours and ten minutes). Testimony took place in the Oval Office. Initially, Bush insisted that he testify only to the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the commission, but later agreed to testify before the full panel.

    That's the point. He doesn't want to be cross-examined. He wants his lawyers to write answers that protect him, and then not answer followups.

    Because @Felya is correct.

    Little different there, in that the 9/11 commission was actually discussing highly classified intelligence (who knew what when and how?), while Trump incited insurrection.

    Bush was also still in office.

    To be fair, so was Trump when he was impeached.

    McConnell could have called the Senate for an emergency session and had him convicted/removed or acquitted by the 19th, but that would have required scruples.

    I know asking intelligence or consistency of these morons is foolish, but... why now? What "last ditch hope" could they possibly be trying to coerce out of... uh... whoever... to keep Trump president?

    I'd also think that them seeing the FBI rounding up the capitol terrorists in droves should spook them out of any further action. Especially now that Biden is actually at the helm and wont have Trump's malignant neglect protecting them.

    Yeah, I am not arguing specifics, just that this is the sort of deal he wants. Especially if you consider how Bush’s untranscribed response plays into conspiracy theories. I think it is fair to assume that Trump likely will believe the conspiracy theory of how Bush avoided the stand, over the difference in specifics.
