"On the swearing-in day of @Charnjit_channi as CM, Mr Rawats’s statement that “elections will be fought under Sidhu”, is baffling. It’s likely to undermine CM’s authority but also negate the very ‘raison d’être’ of his selection for this position": #Congress leader @sunilkjakhar

Dear Lawmakers @POTUS @RonWyden @SpeakerPelosi Hundreds of us biotech investors, innovators, patient advocates, & NIH academics representing >40k US jobs, >600 drugs in trials, & >$200B invested propose solutions to affordability that preserve R&D. 1/…
This is grassroots, not PhRMA. We offer solutions! We support real negotiation: play products off one another to get better prices. Help patients by lowering what insurance can demand OOP for medicines they need. And save by ensuring all drugs go generic w/o undue delay. 2/
But you must not redefine the word “negotiation” to mean that government can just dictate the price of a new drug & force a company to accept it under threat of a ruinous tax. That’s not negotiation, even if you like calling it that. That’s a repudiation of basic economics. 3/

According to a bombshell report from The Intercept, Dr. Anthony Fauci's agency directly funded bat coronavirus research at the #WuhanLab….

श्रीमान @rautsanjay61 विचारतायत की, नेहरूंशी वैर का? राऊतांनी विचारलेल्या प्रश्नाचे उत्तर मी या थ्रेडमध्ये देतोय,
नेहरूंनी त्यांच्या कारकीर्दीत अभिव्यक्ती स्वातंत्र्याची आणि लोकशाही मूल्यांची अनेकदा गळचेपी केली. त्याची ही काही उदाहरणे (१/n)
नेहरूंनी केंद्रीय कायदामंत्री #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांना डावलून गोपालस्वामी अय्यंगार यांच्या हातून कलम ३७०चा मसुदा तयार करून घेतला आणि लोकसभेत बळजबरीने मंजूरही करून घेतला. देशाच्या कायदामंत्र्याला डावलून घटनादुरुस्ती झाल्याची ही भारतातली एकमेव घटना आहे. (२/n)
कलम ३७० हे भारत आणि भारतीयांवर अन्याय करणारे आहे असे #बाबासाहेब #आंबेडकर यांचे ठाम मत होते. कारण, नेहरूंनी जम्मू-काश्मीर विधानसभेला अमर्याद अधिकार देऊ केले होते. (३/n)

क्या आप सभी भाईयों और बहनों को इनके बारे में कुछ पता है?

1) इमरजेंसी के समय 18 ट्रक हीरे जवारात व सोना आमेर से निकालकर किधर कर दिया इंदिरा गाँधी ने पता है क्या?

इसके बारे में पता है क्या?
3)जब राजीव और इन्दिरा प्रधानमंत्री थे, तब बक्से के बक्से भरकर रोज-ब-रोज प्रधानमंत्री निवास से सुरक्षा गार्ड चेन्नई के हवाई अड्डे पर इटली जाने वाले हवाई जहाजों में क्या ले जाते थे?
एक तो हमेशा उन बक्सों को रोम के लिये बुक किया जाता था, एयर इंडिया और
अलिटालिया एयरलाईन्स को ही जिम्मा सौंपा जाता था और दूसरी बात यह कि कस्टम्स पर उन बक्सों की कोई जाँच नहीं होती थी।

An explanation of the costly effects of increased dependence on govt instead of earning independence & depending more on family, friends, and civil society that will give you a hand up rather than a handout.… @TPPF
3/n A “Vehicle Miles Traveled” Tax is a Bad Idea

The new VMT tax is a part of the “infrastructure” bill by #Congress and is just another way to socially engineer people’s behavior while growing the federal govt.

State-level jobs report will be released today. @BLS_gov @TXWorkforce

Key to watch is how about half of states that rejected the federal unemployment bonus compare with other nearly half that hasn’t.

#Texas @GregAbbott_TX correctly rejected it starting June 26. #txlege @TPPF
States that have ended the federal unemployment bonus (rate 1.14%) had a 4.7% faster job creation rate last month than those that didn’t (1.09%).

Econ 101: Incentives matter.

#bls @BLS_gov @TXWorkforce @TPPF #txlege
Year over year: Texas’ job growth rate was 6% through July compared with California’s 5.5%, Florida’s 4.2%, and New York’s 7% (was hit harder by the pandemic shutdowns earlier than the others).

I am currently working with 28 people on the ground trying to get to #HamidKarzai airport—1/3 are kids under 12. They are US citizens, legal permanent residents or immediate family members of USCs. The situation on the ground is NOT as it’s being reported:
The Taliban is reporting that they are not stopping foreign nationals from accessing the airport: WRONG.

There are crowds of thousands and, per one of my people: [translated] “There were taliban pushing people away and not letting anyone through, even with a US passport.”
The US Military & Embassy are reporting the airport is fully secure and they’re getting 500-600 people out per hour: MISLEADING.

US Forces have control of one side of the airport, but the civilian side is completely Taliban-controlled and they’re not letting people through.

⚠️ GROSS COI REVEALED: In an extraordinary and fantastically written investigative report, @theintercept's @rose_n_adams unveils how @UHC co-opted @zackcooperYale's #surprisemedicalbill study, all while #Congress embraced it as "academic" and "unbiased" work to write #SMB law.

What can cause the market to crash 70%+? I've been thinking more and more about this question as almost nobody, except @DaveHcontrarian, thinks it's a possibility.

Important thread⬇️for anyone invested in $BTC $ETH $SPY $QQQ #FANG or any other risk asset.
Let's start off by saying that I am in no way giving advice on what to do to prepare for a potential crash in the markets.

I am only giving my thoughts on what could happen that would lead to a massive correction and how I would not be surprised if it did.
Let's take a step back and look at the current environment:
-> Retail speculation at all time highs, look at any highly leveraged stock with worthless equity and madness going on in #crypto land and #NFTs
-> #liquidity near alltime highs, consumers flush with cash from stimmys

Deposing #RajivGandhi and renaming the #KhelRatna award after #MajorDhyanChand is a) a classic dead cat, b) hypocritical, and c) a cheap shot. Yes, it honours one of India’s greats, but it is no political masterstroke.

#PVNarasimhaRao did it with far greater finesse … 1/
a) It is a classic #deadcat as described by @LyntonKCrosby – a sensational topic thrown in to divert attention away from more damaging topics (of which there are many). This is a standard tactic now, especially among neopopulists. So, no real surprise there

... 2/
@LyntonKCrosby b) Hypocritical, because, among other things, it comes less than six months after the #Motera stadium was renamed after #PMNarendraModi. Oh come on

🧵AMA to #Congress:

•Do not divert scarce health-related offsets to meet objectives unrelated to healthcare.

Physicians already face steep Medicare fiscal challenges.
2/ AMA expresses “deepening alarm concerning the growing financial instability of the Medicare physician payment system.”

“Not only does Congress seem indifferent to the confluence of fiscal uncertainties confronting physician practices at the end of this year, but…”
3/ “…lawmakers’ pursuit of policies to extend the current Medicare sequester that, in effect, will require physicians and health systems to pay for
hard infrastructure amplifies our ongoing concerns.”
