  • Biden's plain-spoken appeal for unity might be contagious in a new Washington

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden heralded the restoration of respectful republican governance Wednesday, simultaneously paying tribute to the power of American democracy and warning that its survival is tenuous. In an inaugural address short on specifics and long on calls for solidarity, the newly sworn-in 46th commander-in-chief promised, as presidents do, to be a leader for all Americans - those who voted for him and those who did not. Two aspects of Biden's appeal made it uniquely authentic to him: context and consistency. The speech was elegantly humble in delivering a single, inoffensive thought into the collective conscience of the...

    Place your virtual, non-monetary bets! This thread has one purpose: Predict the day in Traitor Zhoas administration that the female triumvirate (Feinstein, Pelosi, Heels-up) manages to remove the Pedophile in Chief from power. Rules: 1. Winner is the one who predicts correctly the day the VP takes the oath. 2. Winner is the one who predicts correctly the first day removal is mentioned in the criminal media (FoxNBC, etc). 3. Winner is the one who predicts correctly the day the Cabinet concludes Traitor Zhoa is no longer fit to be President. So there are three winners possible. One could probably...

    Brought my mother who is 94 and has intermittent confusion and a possible fall to my house to care for her. In the past 3 weeks she has eaten and drank less and less. Refusing all sorts of food she used to eat, scrambled eggs or eggs of any kind, ensure which she used to drink and like, yogurt, chicken salad sandwich which she used to like and now refuses any food. She stopped eating altogether and drinks one cup of coffee in the morning and that's about it and that coffee is a half a cup is all. She...

    Dallas’ former chief is disappearing. Sarah Dodd knew something was wrong with her husband in November 2019. Though, if she’s being honest, she began to worry at least a year before that, probably longer. Something she couldn’t yet define, something still more feeling than fact. Just that thing, said the former television reporter, “when you’re around someone you love and you know when that person is not …” “... When that person is not himself.” Nov. 14, 2019, was one day after Dodd’s husband, former Dallas Police Chief David Kunkle, turned 69. To celebrate, the couple flew to Santa Barbara,...

    I am asking for prayers for my sweet friend Beth. She was recently diagnosed with early stages of dementia. Beth was a tremendous source of strength and courage for me when I lost my mother to cancer back in 1997. I tried to help her as she watched her own mother languish for several years as dementia took her piece by piece. Beth worked with my husband for over 20 years until recently when she had to retire due to "episodes" brought on by the same disease that took her mom. For Christmas, I made her what I hoped was...
  • Fauci again changes his perspective on herd immunity threshold: Fauci claims herd immunity numbers were 'guestimates,' settles on 75-80%

    Dr. Anthony Fauci on Sunday dismissed accusations that he deliberately moved the goalposts on when the country would vaccinate enough people against COVID-19 to reach herd immunity, saying he was previously offering "guestimates." Reported by some outlets as a "confession," Fauci told The New York Times: "When polls said only about half of all Americans would take a vaccine, I was saying herd immunity would take 70 to 75 percent …Then, when newer surveys said 60 percent or more would take it, I thought, ‘I can nudge this up a bit,’ so I went to 80,85." In subsequent interviews, Fauci...
  • Dutch doctors now permitted to sedate patients in secret before euthanising them

    12/27/2020 5:09:01 AM PST · by xomething · 29 replies
    Doctors in the Netherlands are now permitted to secretly sedate patients who have dementia before euthanising them. New regulations say that in those cases where a patient has dementia and has previously requested euthanasia, “it is not necessary for the doctor to agree with the patient the time or manner in which euthanasia will be given.” The regulations are the result of a murder trial against a Dutch doctor, Marinor Arends, who gave her dementia patient sleeping pills without the patients knowledge, to stop her resisting, before administering a lethal injection. Before her dementia deteriorated, the patient had told medics...

    President-elect Joe Biden has made no secret that tackling climate change will be one of his top priorities. But to enact his platform to reduce global warming he may find an unexpected ally: Republicans. Biden campaigned on the most ambitious climate agenda in history: one that included plans for pioneering green energy and infrastructure projects and proposals to address environmental racism. Large chunks of his "Build Back Better" economic agenda are explicitly tied to climate-related policies. Biden has said he will re-enter the U.S. in the Paris climate accord on his first day in office and will prioritize undoing dozens...

Just more knowingly bad reporting!,' the president tweeted early Sunday. Multiple reports also say the meeting saw him mull appointing controversial attorney Sidney Powell as special counsel to investigate election fraud.

    Y'know, for people who are supposedly so confident in their Big Win on Election Night, Mr. Biden and Mrs. Harris sure aren't acting like people destined for an Inauguration Ceremony! They should be rushed off their feet preparing guest lists, meeting with the Inauguration Committee, having fittings for their outfits, etc. etc. Instead they're behaving like Willy Wonka's famous spoonerism: "So much time and so little to do!" #1. Harris Fails to Resign from Senate No hurry, Kamala. Heavy sigh. We'll wait. I'll merely mention that effective November 16th, 2008, Barack Hussein Obama had lickety-split resigned his Senate seat, a...

    WILMINGTON, Del. - President-elect Joe Biden’s team will consider several options to punish Russia for its suspected role in the unprecedented hacking of U.S. government agencies and companies once he takes office, from new financial sanctions to cyberattacks on Russian infrastructure, people familiar with the matter say. The response will need to be strong enough to impose a high economic, financial or technological cost on the perpetrators, but avoid an escalating conflict between two nuclear-armed Cold War adversaries, said one of the people familiar with Biden’s deliberations, speaking on condition of anonymity. The overarching goal of any action, which could...

    President-elect Joe Biden said Republicans will have "much more room to run and cooperate" after President Donald Trump leaves the White House. In an interview with CBS 'Late Show' host Stephen Colbert, Biden said he doesn't blame Republicans who have been slow to congratulate his win and believes Trump's hold over the party will become less of a barrier to cooperation. "I think I can work with Republican leadership in the House and the Senate, I think we can get things done, and I think once this president is no longer in office, I think you're going to see his...

Biden told Tapper “I understand how campaigns can sometimes get a little out of wack a little bit” and he said he doesn’t “hold grudges.” “So I don’t have — when we disagree, it will be just like — so far it’s been just like Barack and I did.

    Rapid mental rejuvenation in old mice suggests age-related losses may be broadly reversible. Just a few doses of an experimental drug can reverse age-related declines in memory and mental flexibility in mice, according to a new study by UC San Francisco scientists. The drug, called ISRIB, has already been shown in laboratory studies to restore memory function months after traumatic brain injury (TBI), reverse cognitive impairments in Down Syndrome, prevent noise-related hearing loss, fight certain types of prostate cancer, and even enhance cognition in healthy animals. In the new study, published on December 1, 2020, in the open-access journal eLife,...
