"Senator Paul, you do not know what you are talking about, and I want to say that officially."

Dr. Anthony Fauci, July 20, 2021
Context: Paul is accusing Fauci of "lying" to Congress about research done in China on coronaviruses.

Fauci: "Those viruses are molecularly impossible to result in SARS COVID" ... "You are implying that what we did was responsible for the deaths of individuals. I totally resent
that and if anybody is lying here, it's you."
"I have never lied, certainly not before Congress, case closed," said Fauci.

A year ago, if you told me I’d be a dog mom, I’d have given some strong side eye.

Well, a year can change a lot -- and I’m in love.

My dad was a huge dog lover, actually just a huge animal lover. Our house was a part time motel for strays he’d find on the job. Once, ....
he brought home a pregnant cat. We kept the kittens, all 4 of them. You get the idea.

My sisters insist he engineered this from heaven -- because it would have taken nothing short of divine intervention.

A year ago this week, we lost dad. This week, we welcome Suki, a name ...

as more transmissible variants create new hot spots and most Americans aren’t yet vaccinated.

2. HHS is helping to fund & support 3 monoclonal antibody treatment centers at Henry Ford Health System: Community Health and Social Services (CHASS) Center (a federally qualified 2/
health center), Henry Ford Detroit Main Campus, and Henry Ford Macomb Hospital.

“Our support will increase the capacity of these centers fivefold,” the official said.

NEW to @NBCNews: Frmr. FDA officials urge Biden to nominate a permanent commissioner

👉Amid questions ab. if the void impacts approval of more tools to fight COVID, mainly RAPID ANTIGEN TESTS, which we're shipping to Europe but not using here en masse.

“The coming days and weeks will require further timely and effective actions, for example to support the development of antiviral treatments and advance the availability of reliable, easy-to-use tests,” wrote the frmr commissioners including Scott Gottlieb & Mark McClellan.
This is particularly important as the U.S. rushes to reopen schools just as the new, more contagious variant takes hold.

Dr. Ashish Jha of Brown University also pressed Congress and to prioritize this. “Many companies have developed antigen tests that cost less than five dollars

NEW: CDC, after coming under criticism on school opening blueprint, issues guidance targeting *indoor air quality,* which is a major problem in thousands of schools:

@NBCNews reported on Feb. 15 about the absence of specific air quality guidelines:


Particularly in underserved areas, and as new, more contagious variants of the virus take hold, ventilation is a critical concern in reopening schools.

A 2020 GAP report found 41% of districts need to update or replace heating, ventilation, and HVAC
systems in at least half of their schools, amounting to 36,000 schools needing HVAC updates.

"Perhaps they feel it’s hopeless because they can’t open windows or doors because of (active shooter) security protocols" & changing HVAC is expensive/time consuming, says @DrEricDing.

My turn to thank YOU, @NicolleDWallace, for giving this issue the time it needs.

Poor ventilation in U.S. schools is a *nationwide* epidemic.

Further, the studies showing school COVID spread is low were done PRIOR to the new, more contagious variants set to become dominant.
"an estimated 41 percent of districts need to update or replace heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
(HVAC) systems in at least half of their schools, representing about 36,000 schools nationwide that need HVAC updates"

Trump calling his remarks prior to a violent mob assaulting the Capitol "totally appropriate" broke a dam that's stood strong for 4 years.

@RepFredUpton of MI in announcing his support for impeachment:

"the President characterized his inflammatory rhetoric at last Wednesday’s
rally as “totally appropriate,” and he expressed no regrets for last week’s violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

This sends exactly the wrong signal to those of us who support the very core of our democratic principles and took a solemn oath to the Constitution.
I would have preferred a bipartisan, formal censure rather than a drawn-out impeachment process. I fear this will now interfere with important legislative business and a new Biden Administration. But it is time to say: Enough is enough.

The Congress must hold President Trump to
