"I believe... when this plays out, over the next year or two, it's not gonna be about President Trump... that's gonna get over with. It's gonna be about all the things they did. You know how sometimes the coverup is worse than the crime? In this case, the investigation was much worse than the no crime."
--Rudy Giuliani, Fox News' Hannity, 8/8/2018, (at 6:58)

If the kids don't know anything else these days, they know their Separate But Equal history month stuff.

He's apparently been trying to make himself relevant by attacking Democrats.

Seen other nicknames to add to the list: "W.E.B. DeFraud," "Crooker T. Washington."

@GOP: ""The states should know how many ventilators they have in their state…This is a time of crisis, and you're seeing certain people are better managers than others.” -Jared Kushner"

@KurtSchlichter: "Least Surprising Thing Of The Day:

Our shitty media is agreeing with the ChiComs again.

It's a challenge for all levels of government, and it becomes clear who's up to the challenge.

@verumserum: "I understand what 'the buck stops here' means, but the major media is focused on Trump as if he's the mayor of every town, the Gov. of every state and the head of every agency. The buck does have other stops before the Resolute desk."

@ScottAdamsSays: "I've studied Q, extensively, and I can tell you one thing for sure: It's a letter."

'Course, Michael Avenatti was being touted as a presidential candidate, too... so we'll see what happens.

The debate over borders is over: they are needed.

The debate over globalization is over: the era of autarky begins.

The debate over Europe is over: it is a geographic expression, not a polity.

The debate over global warming is over: it is irrelevant.

The debate over international institutions is over: only nations matter.

The debate over the People’s Republic of China is over: it is a menace to the community of nations, not a member in good standing.

Crisis is clarity.

Without controls and good experimental design, it's hard to say how many people would have gotten better on their own or with the previous therapy. But we can do those trials while treating patients based on "anecdotal evidence."

No wonder Dr. doesn't want to be turned into a soundbite. He's been quite consistent in demanding randomized controlled trials to prove what's effective.

@revrrlewis: "Dr. Anthony Fauci responds to Dr. Oz's advocacy for HCQ as a covid treatment: 'That was not a very robust study.' Fauci also says some may 'feel' HCQ is an effective treatment, and 'there is a suggestion' it could be, but we can't 'make that majestic leap' to assume it's a cure."

@rising_serpent: "If you thought Alexander Vindman was the Democrat Messiah with the exalted piety of victimhood, watch this guy be instantly anointed high priest of the leftist church of victimology."

>@AudreyJeanne: "I live in California. Density, even in our large cities, much less than New York. Lack of public transportation such as subway & more cars for individual travel. Geographic size of state allows more land per person and a lot of expansive rural areas in our state."

Looking at the Johns Hopkins data map this morning, it's shocking what a disaster this is for the state of New York, and NYC in particular. 2,935 fatalities, 41% of the deaths for the entire U.S.

@OversightGov: "Michael Horowitz, Chair of the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) and the Inspector General at the Department of Justice, issued a statement on the removal of Michael Atkinson, the Inspector General for the Intelligence Community (ICIG)."

If someone wanted to make people more skeptical of "climate change" model projections, they could hardly do better than to screw up the model for predicting the coronavirus pandemic.

That's good... but that's bad.
No wonder President Trump was distancing himself from the model yesterday. It's probably just going to get worse (though the epidemic will, too).

@RealJamesWoods: "'The real push [against] hydroxychloroquine is the fact that Donald Trump liked it. If Donald Trump said the sun came up in the morning, they'd say, 'Oh no, that's a Chinese lightbulb in the sky. It just is perverse.'" "

@adamscrabble: "Biophysicist F. Scholkmann visualized that in US its not # of infected ppl that is increasing exponentially, but of tests. The # of infected people in relation to # of tests remains basically constant (oscillating b/w 10 % 20%) which speaks against current viral epidemic"
