    Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. and Kamala Devi Harris were sworn in to office as US President and Vice President Wednesday morning, marking then end of now-former US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence's tenure in office. While Biden's inauguration was broadcast across MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN on Wednesday, the three networks and their talking heads took different approaches in their coverage and commentary. Fox News The Fox News Channel took a very comparative and more critical approach to Biden's inauguration than its competitors, highlighting the administration transition from Republican to Democrat control. The outlet also echoed right-wing...

    The Pentagon has deployed 750 specially trained members of the US military — including bomb squads and trauma medics — to Washington, DC, amid security concerns over Wednesday’s inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. The troops also include active-duty personnel trained in “extraction and decontamination operations” following attacks with chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological and explosive weapons, the Department of Defense said Monday.

    More than 70 percent of COVID-19 vaccines are still sitting in freezers in the US — as the country’s disastrous rollout has forced desperate Florida senior citizens to camp out overnight for their shot. Hundreds braved chilly 40-degree temperatures and slept in their cars overnight in Daytona Beach in the mad rush for inoculations, NBC Miami reported.
  • Why RNA Vaccines for COVID-19 Raced to the Front of the Pack

    SciTech Daily ^ | 01/16/2021 | ANNE TRAFTON, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY
    Most vaccines for SARS-CoV-2 provoke an immune response that targets the coronavirus spike protein, which is found on the surface of the virus. Messenger RNA vaccines on the other hand, encode segments of the spike protein, and those mRNA sequences are much easier to generate in the lab than the spike protein itself. Many years of research have enabled scientists to quickly synthesize RNA vaccines and deliver them inside cells.Developing and testing a new vaccine typically takes at least 12 to 18 months. However, just over 10 months after the genetic sequence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus was published, two pharmaceutical...
  • Acting defense secretary orders NSA director to immediately install former GOP operative as the agency’s top lawyer

    01/17/2021 8:06:22 AM PST · by MNDude · 103 replies
    Acting defense secretary Christopher C. Miller ordered the director of the National Security Agency to install on Saturday a former GOP political operative as the NSA’s top lawyer, according to four individuals familiar with the matter. The move is troubling, coming as it does four days before President Trump leaves office and the Biden administration takes over, former U.S. officials said. The move makes it more difficult for the Biden administration to immediately replace him, the former officials said. “An 11th-hour move like this and a directive from the acting secretary of defense is overwhelmingly strong evidence of irregularity,” Hennessey...

    The Black Lives Matter activist who was seen storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was arrested and charged, the Department of Justice said Thursday. A newly released court filing says John Earle Sullivan, 26, told FBI agents last week that he was at the Capitol when the breach happened. He said he entered through a window that had been broken out. He also said he was present when Ashli Babbitt, an Air Force veteran, was shot dead by a U.S. Capitol Police officer as she tried to climb into the House Speaker’s Lobby through a window. Sullivan showed agents...

    Google is under fire for removing some local news content from its search results in Australia as part of an "experiment", in what critics called a "chilling illustration" of the firm's power. The incident is the latest in an ongoing spat between Google and the Australian government, which is considering forcing it and Facebook to pay local news providers for displaying their content. Shortly after the law was proposed early last year, Google added a notice to its site warning "the way Aussies search every day on Google is at risk." On Wednesday, Google said it had been "running a...

    “If we would have had the National Guard, we could have held them at bay longer, until more officers from our partner agencies could arrive,” Mr. Sund, who served in the top post for under a year, told The Washington Post. In the end, the Capitol Police, outnumbered, was unable to hold back a mob several times its size, resulting in a violent invasion of the national legislature not seen since the War of 1812.

    Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said that Twitter and Facebook made the wrong decision in blocking President Trump from their platforms. Lopez Obrador said the move provided a hindrance to freedom of speech in a press briefing on Friday. "How can you censor someone? Let’s see, I, as the judge of the Holy Inquisition, will punish you because I think what you’re saying is harmful?" he remarked. "Where is the law, where is the regulation, what are the norms? This is an issue of government. This is not an issue for private companies." In a statement later in the...

  • Twitter bans Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell in QAnon account purge

    01/08/2021 7:52:24 PM PST · by MNDude · 32 replies
    Twitter on Friday removed the accounts of Michael Flynn, Sidney Powell and other high-profile supporters of President Donald Trump who promoted the QAnon conspiracy theory. The permanent bans are among the highest profile that the company has instituted as part of its efforts to crack down on misinformation and calls for violence. Flynn and Powell both met with Trump at the White House in recent weeks as part of efforts to overturn the presidential election results. They are also high-profile figures in the QAnon community, and Flynn even took an “oath” to the conspiracy theory last year.
