Really? @realDonaldTrump ‘s campaign and then his administration was corruptly investigated by Comey’s henchmen at the FBI during Obama presidency .
Incoming National Security Advisor @GenFlynn was sandbagged by Comey’s henchmen and convicted in a dubious abuse of government investigative power.
Then Comey orchestrated the appointment of Special Counsel Mueller and a two year investigation of alleged collision and obstruction ensued, resulting in no charges against POTUS.
Comey FBI lawyer lies to Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to spy on an American citizen.
Then, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats impeached POTUS, forcing the second such Senate trial in American history, while #COVID 19 spread to the U.S. and the world was engulfed in a pandemic.
POTUS found “Not Guilty” of House impeachment charges
By what definition could all of this be considered an orderly transition?

While we are appropriately celebrating the life of Justice Ginsburg, we should also recall what as been called the Ginsburg Rule for judicial confirmation hearings, dating back to her own confirmation hearing in 1993, presided over by then-Chairman Joe Biden:
“A judge sworn to decide impartially can offer no forecasts, no hints, for that would show not only disregard for the specifics of a particular case, it would display disdain for the entire judicial process.”
Likewise, Model Code of Judicial Conduct, Canon 5 states: “A judge sworn to decide impartially can offer no forecasts, no hints, for that would show not only disregard for the specifics of a particular case, it would display disdain for the entire judicial process.”

Does this sound like a serious approach to passing the next #COVID19 relief bill? @playbookplus
On TUESDAY, Speaker NANCY PELOSI and Senate Minority Leader CHUCK SCHUMER said the Republicans’ $1 trillion Covid relief plan and the Democrats’ multi trillion-dollar HEROES Act are simply irreconcilable.
“IT’S LIKE A GIRAFFE AND A FLAMINGO,” PELOSI said to White House COS MARK MEADOWS and Treasury Sec. STEVEN MNUCHIN. “They’re both at a zoo. A dumb person may think they could mate for offspring. A smart person knows that’s impossible. That’s our bills. They’re unable to mate.”

@WSJ The Justice Department’s release of documents from the Obama Administration’s 2016-17 Trump-Russia investigation is beginning to paint a picture, and the more we learn the worse the FBI looks.
The latest evidence comes from Friday’s declassification via the Senate Judiciary Committee of the FBI’s interviews, over three days in January 2017, with the primary source for the infamous Steele dossier.
Former British spy Christopher Steele, whose dirt-digging was financed by the Hillary Clinton campaign, based nearly all of his dossier allegations on information from one unidentified “primary subsource.”

Without a doubt, there are more #COVID19 cases in Texas; thankfully, almost all will recover as they are between age of 20-59. No, you are not bulletproof.
Hospital bed capacity is concerning for those needing them, but sufficient for now. Staffing is a big concern because our doctors, nurses are exhausted.
Deaths are disproportionately octogenarians and those with underlying health problems as this chart from @Texas2036 shows. Image

"The virus that ravaged Northeastern U.S. cities is surging through Southern and Western states. It’s different this time. @WSJ
Younger people are getting sick with Covid-19. States that had brief coronavirus lockdowns are struggling to encourage social distancing and mask-wearing.
Many people appear to have embraced their usual summer rituals. ... [P]ublic-health experts attribute the rise in cases to people becoming more mobile, congregating in groups and dropping safety measures.

Since much of media is laser focused on new #COVID19 cases in Texas, here is the rest of the story for some context as of today:

1.6 million tests
7.2% positive rate
63% recovered
2% fatality rate, disproportionately those 80+ years old ImageImageImage
Everyone watching hospital capacity for any surge, but so far so good. However, we know the virus does't play by our rules.
Looks like a bump in cases for younger age groups, the vast majority of which will recover at home w/o hospitalization. Maybe we need a reminder: Wash hands, social distance, mask when you can't, stay home if you are ill. Otherwise live your life.
