Unsurprisingly, @RealPNavarro has no idea what the Mayo Clinic actually said. And the idea that doctors in ICUs are going to make medical decisions with critically ill pts based on CNN reports is crazy. But what do studies actually say, and why is hydro use so limited? Well...
Image ..In 2020, FDA (under Trump), NIH and World Health Organization stopped studies evaluating hydroxychloroquine for the treatment of COVID-19 due to a lack of benefit. Current NIH and US guidelines recommend its use for COVID-19 treatment in hospitals only in clinical trials...

Media who interview CEO Barra of @GM need to understand: When asked about difference between how much of an increase she receives to reach her compensation ($30 mill - higher than all but Tesla) compared to workers, she says "It's performance based." What a croc. Here's why.../1 ...For most, it's hard for average person to understand because the compensation standards in GM's proxy is loaded with undefined acronyms - TSR, LTIP, NEO, etc. But when you know the meaning, you see that her compensation is rigged. A good percentage of her comp is based on...

Would reporters *please* stop saying RICO law in Georgia is intended to be applied to organized crime. That is *false.* In fact, it is wrong on so many levels that it is shocking reporters keep saying it. They are clearly referring to federal RICO - where they are also wrong.../1 ...federal RICO (not part of the Georgia case) has been and - according G. Robert Blakey, the man who wrote the statute - was intended both to apply to the activities of organized crime *and* other criminal enterprises, including white collar crime. From Blakey in 1989:.../2 Image

Florida wants to teach about "skills" slaves obtained in the antebellum south because "beneficent" slaveholders taught their slaves to read, write, blacksmithing, etc. They say this is supported by "scholars." Well, let's see what the scholars really say.../1 ...first, let's start with blacksmithing, since this is specifically what DeSantis mentioned yesterday. This, more than anything, underscores the brutal ignorance of the GOP on history, and their apparent belief that Africans arrived here as ignorant, incompetent savages.../2

Wow. This is the biggest pile of nonsense I have ever read. A few problems:
1. Viktor Shokin never conducted a criminal investigation of Burisma. There was a criminal investigation in *Britain* of Mykola Zlochevsky, founder of Burisma, for purportedly laundering money stolen.../1 ...when Zlochevsky served as Minister of Ecology and Natural Resources in Ukraine through British banks. Britain attempted to get documents for its case from Ukraine and Shokin *blocked* it.

2. Shokin also blocked all investigations of Ukranian oligarchs, which is what led.../2

I've long said, despite the criminality depicted in Bragg's statement of facts, the linkage to tax fraud was weak and the most damning part - the AIM coordination - was a federal crime, so not charged. IOW, I wouldnt be surprised if it didn't survive a motion to dismiss. But.../1 ...the classified documents case is in another stratosphere. The magnitude of the crimes depicted are deeply serious and per se illegal. There is no "linkage" required. Plus, the witnesses are all from Trump world...unlike Michael Cohen, it would nearly impossible to argue.../2

As a flood of details of the Trump MaraLago case come out, Trump, commentators etc say Smith's team is leaking. As someone who has covered these kinds of cases many times, that is almost certainly not true. And the fact that this much is coming out is a bad sign for Trump.../1 ...as investigations near their close, there are scores of people who know what is going on. Every witness has a lawyer, and all the lawyers speak to each other to make sure that their clients have not made an error in their testimony to the grand jury. Reporters always have../2

I wasnt able to get on Twitter for weeks after the CNN/Trump town hall. So this comment is delayed. The event was an abominable journalistic failure not because they hosted Trump. He is important & newsworthy. But they let him set terms that no real journalist would accept.../1 ...first, comes stacking the audience. Doing that and pretending it's "news" is bad enough. Telling the audience only to clap is worse. But not disclosing to viewers that this is what they did? That is journalistic lying. That is no different than a news fotog posing a photo.../2

I have been writing since 2014 that there has never been a worse SCOTUS Justice than Alito. Even as a lower court judge, he ignored facts he didn't like, dismissing them with a "that's ridiculous" response, has ignored law and precedent to reach the outcome he wants. He has.../1 ...to my knowledge never ruled on any issue that contradicts what is found in the GOP platform. He has attended/been keynoter *as a Justice* for fundraisers to benefit GOP causes. He is unfit. My mouth dropped when he was confirmed *because* his lower court decisions were.../2

These also constitute illegal in-kind campaign contributions (and they later became in cash.) And this relationship with AMI is bizarre.

Tucker Carlson if he had worked with a media organization throughout history, and used his cherry picking techniques:

The @nytimes has publishes an absolutely reckless and wrong @nytopinion piece by Brett Stephens about a scientific paper he clearly did not read.

In fact, the... ...paper, which does not even count as a meta-analysis based on how it was put together, but is simply an arbitrary collection of studies that may or may not have anything to do with COVID.

Desantis says AP African American Studies was banned because it contains "queer theory." Reality:
1. What he is talking about is that it includes reading Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison, one of the greatest black writers in history.
2. "Kids" aren't being denied this course.../1 ...it is being offered to seniors in high school. The majority of high school seniors at graduation are adults - 18 years. The rest of them are almost adults.

Sigh.

This is about COVID vaccines and blood clots. First, this whole issue has been known since 10/2020. All infinitesimal side effects have to be studied, as this one was.
