    This time the president makes false accusations and other grievous errors in the Rose Garden. Once again, Trump has proven that common sense is not a common virtue. The terrible thing about this, in addition that it is 'bearing false witness' is that his minions will continue to believe it.

    President Trump smeared a prominent television host on Tuesday from the lectern in the Rose Garden with an unfounded allegation of murder, taking the politics of rage and conspiracy theory to a new level even as much of the political world barely took notice.

    In an attack that once would have been unthinkable for a sitting president, Mr. Trump all but accused Joe Scarborough, a former Republican congressman who now hosts the MSNBC show “Morning Joe,” of killing a staff member in 2001 even though he was 800 miles away at the time and the police ruled her death an accident.
    The president’s charge amplified a series of Twitter messages in recent days that have drawn almost no rebukes from fellow Republicans eager to look the other way but have anguished the family of Lori Klausutis, who died when she suffered a heart condition that caused her to fall and hit her head on a desk. Mr. Trump doubled down on the false accusation even after Timothy Klausutis pleaded unsuccessfully with Twitter to take down the posts about his late wife because they were causing her family such deep pain.

    Trump continues to make a jackass out of himself...

    Joe Biden called President Donald Trump "an absolute fool" on Tuesday for sharing a tweet that mocked the former vice president for wearing a mask Monday at a Memorial Day ceremony.


    In an interview with CNN's Dana Bash in Delaware -- Biden's first in-person interview since being knocked off the campaign trail by the coronavirus pandemic -- the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee said Trump is fueling a cultural opposition to wearing masks when "every leading doc in the world is saying we should wear a mask when you're in a crowd."

    "This macho stuff, for a guy -- I shouldn't get going, but it just, it costs people's lives. It's costing people's lives," Biden said. Trump's position amounts to "stoking deaths," he said.

    He added: "Presidents are supposed to lead, not engage in folly and be falsely masculine."

    'We're screwed': The only question is how quickly Louisiana wetlands will vanish, study says

    Climate change deniers have a number of defensive positions, which they fall back on depending on how indoctrinated they are:

    1. It's not happening
    2. It's not us
    3. It's not that bad
    4. It's easier to deal with the fallout than change our behavior

    So, we're at #4 in some areas. What's the plan?

    Or be over 65 years old as the official site of the TX Secretary of State says.

    The burden of proof is on your side. What we know from multiple states, including conservative ones, is that they have not produced anything to justify such fear. And by the way, all states have some form of either mail vote or absentee ballot.

    Here is one from TX

    No, there is not if it is set properly.

    My wife votes by mail and as a registered voter she receives a vote form. If for some reason a random guy steals this form, it will be useless to him. First, he will need to know personal details to fill it. Then even if he does fill the form and sends it to the state, a red alarm in the state system will be triggered when my wife will get another form and vote.

    The only reason that trump does not want mail in ballots, is that a poor turn out on election day improves his odds of winning. Period

    Democrats would have the dead voting if they could get away with it. Oh wait republicans and democrats have both already done that.

    What we can be sure of is the Democrats would be against vote by mail if it did not favored them and Republicans would be for it.

    Keeping the number of mail in votes low is just common sense unless you want to spend months in court certifying election results.

    Trump's 'disgusting' tweets:

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp
    Over the last 10 days, President Donald Trump has repeatedly insinuated that former Florida congressman (and current MSNBC anchor) Joe Scarborough may have been personally involved in the 2001 death of an aide in his district office.

    Here's Trump's latest (of many) tweets on it -- from Tuesday morning:




    "The opening of a Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough was not a Donald Trump original thought, this has been going on for years, long before I joined the chorus. In 2016 when Joe & his wacky future ex-wife, Mika, would endlessly interview me, I would always be thinking about whether or not Joe could have done such a horrible thing? Maybe or maybe not, but I find Joe to be a total Nut Job, and I knew him well, far better than most. So many unanswered & obvious questions, but I won't bring them up now! Law enforcement eventually will?"

    None of this is, of course, true. Trump is referring to the death of a woman named Lori Klausutis 19 years ago. As The Washington Post reported back in 2017 (when Trump first started making these unfounded allegations against Scarborough):

    "Authorities determined 16 years ago that she died after losing consciousness from an abnormal heart rhythm and collapsed, striking her head. She was discovered in Scarborough's office in Fort Walton Beach, lying on her back with her head near a desk, according to a 2001 police report."

    The Post story notes that the medical examiner deemed Klausutis' death an accident.

    The President is wrong. This is not a cold case. There aren't "many unanswered & obvious questions." A 28-year-old woman died because of a previously undiagnosed heart condition. It is a tragedy. It is not a murder. And what Trump is doing is using Klausutis' death to score points with his political base -- no matter who it hurts.

    Covid-19 patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine were more likely to die.
    Any idea why they are combining both drugs together? It makes no sense to combine the 2 drugs.

    Chloroquine


    Common side effects include
    Other, rare side effects include:
    Possible serious effects:
    Hydroxychloroquine


    Side effects include
    Rarely, hydroxychloroquine can affect the bone marrow leading to reduced white blood cells (leukopenia) or platelets (thrombocytopenia) and abnormal red blood cells (anemia).

    Rare but potentially serious eye toxicity can occur. This toxicity affects a part of the eye called the retina and can lead to color blindness and even loss of vision. An ophthalmologist (eye specialist) often can detect changes in the retina that suggest toxicity before serious damage occurs. Therefore, regular eye examinations, even when there are no symptoms, are mandatory.

    Patients who are genetically deficient in a certain enzyme, called G6PD, can develop a severe anemia resulting from the rupture of red blood cells. This enzyme deficiency is more common in persons of African descent and can be evaluated by blood testing. Hydroxychloroquine may worsen psoriasis.

    For the study to have any value - that would have to be the case, yes.

    That's why the method is usually published and 'peer reviewed'.

    Should be easy enough to find out

    You cannot prove a negative-that is illogical. Where is the evidence that voter fraud is both rampant and on a large scale. I've not seen any except in the minds of Trump and those morons that support him.
