Alabama disaster plan would deny treatment to those with "severe mental retardation"

No.574687 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Some state plans make clear that people with cognitive issues are a lower priority for lifesaving treatment. For instance, Alabama’s plan says that “persons with severe mental retardation, advanced dementia or severe traumatic brain injury may be poor candidates for ventilator support.” Another part says that “persons with severe or profound mental retardation, moderate to severe dementia, or catastrophic neurological complications such as persistent vegetative state are unlikely candidates for ventilator support.”

Donald Trump will protest the 2020 election for years; CPAC is here to help him spread his conspiracies

Donald Trump will probably spend years protesting his 2020 election loss to President Joe Biden – and, if a weekend conference of conservative activists is any indication, most of his supporters are prepared to help him spread conspiracy theories about it.

This year's Conservative Political Action Conference devoted hours to the issue of "Protecting Elections" – code for "voter fraud" – and Trump is expected to hit the theme hard when he addresses CPAC on Sunday afternoon; it's the former president's first public speech since he left office on Jan. 20.

Many CPAC delegates echoed Trump's claims of a "rigged" or "stolen" election, and said he and other potential GOP candidates should make "election integrity" an issue in the 2022 congressional and 2024 presidential contests.

The non white leader of the white supremacist terrorist group Proud Boys was an FBI Informant

n the Miami hearing, a federal prosecutor, a Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and Tarrio’s own lawyer described his undercover work and said he had helped authorities prosecute more than a dozen people in various cases involving drugs, gambling and human smuggling.

Tarrio, in an interview with Reuters Tuesday, denied working undercover or cooperating in cases against others. “I don’t know any of this,” he said, when asked about the transcript. “I don’t recall any of this.”

Law-enforcement officials and the court transcript contradict Tarrio’s denial. In a statement to Reuters, the former federal prosecutor in Tarrio’s case, Vanessa Singh Johannes, confirmed that “he cooperated with local and federal law enforcement, to aid in the prosecution of those running other, separate criminal enterprises, ranging from running marijuana grow houses in Miami to operating pharmaceutical fraud schemes.”

Tarrio, 36, is a high-profile figure who organizes and leads the right-wing Proud Boys in their confrontations with those they believe to be Antifa, short for “anti-fascism,” an amorphous and often violent leftist movement. The Proud Boys were involved in the deadly insurrection at the Capitol January 6.

The records uncovered by Reuters are startling because they show that a leader of a far-right group now under intense scrutiny by law enforcement was previously an active collaborator with criminal investigators.

Washington police arrested Tarrio in early January when he arrived in the city two days before the Capitol Hill riot. He was charged with possessing two high-capacity rifle magazines, and burning a Black Lives Matter banner during a December demonstration by supporters of former President Donald Trump. The D.C. Superior Court ordered him to leave the city pending a court date in June.

Low unemployment isn’t worth much

No.530685 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Two-thirds (64%) of low-wage workers are in their prime working years of 25 to 54.
More than half (57%) work full-time year-round, the customary schedule for employment intended to provide financial security.
About half (51%) are primary earners or contribute substantially to family living expenses.
Thirty-seven percent have children. Of this group, 23% live below the federal poverty line.
Less than half (45%) of low-wage workers ages 18 to 24 are in school or already have a college degree.

These statistics tell an important story: Millions of hardworking American adults struggle to eke out a living and support their families on very low wages.

What should be done? Some suggest that education and “upskilling” is the answer, arguing that if these workers got more education and increased their skills, they would move up to higher-paying jobs.

TOPKEK Chinks gave US diplomats anal COVID checks "in error"

Funniest shit I've read in weeks.

>China Gave US Diplomats Anal COVID Tests ‘In Error,’ American Officials Say

>The U.S. State Department says it is committed to preserving the “dignity” of American diplomats.

>The Chinese government has promised to stop using anal swabs on American diplomats to test for COVID-19 after Washington complained that the practice was undignified, the U.S. State Department said. “The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it,” a State Department spokesperson told VICE World News on Wednesday. The spokesperson said Beijing had assured Washington that the test was given “in error” and that diplomatic personnel were exempt from the test, which was mandatory for incoming travelers in some parts of China. “We have instructed staff to decline this test if it is asked of them, as was done in the past.”

Josh Hawley Flatly Rejects To Qaren MGT & Followers 'Whackos'

No.797895 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) has said the QAnon conspiracy theory has no credibility and criticized those who follow it.

Hawley, speaking to KMOV News 4, was asked if he in any way backs the ideology of QAnon followers and if this has any credibility in his opinion.

"No. Zero," he said. "I don't know, I still don't know what they are or why Marjorie Taylor Green is aligning so tightly to them. I don't care to know. It seems like a bunch of whackos, extremists to me and absolutely not."

This is Trump's heaping list of legal problems post-impeachment

No.791305 ViewReplyOriginalReport

After averting a conviction in his second impeachment trial, former President Donald Trump faces significant new legal threats as prosecutors in Georgia have joined those in New York to conduct criminal investigations into his actions.

As the nation watched harrowing videos from January 6 of Trump supporters storming the US Capitol during the Senate impeachment trial this week, Georgia officials announced they have opened investigations into Trump's efforts to overturn the state's election results, including by pressuring officials to "find" votes to swing the outcome in his favor.

The new investigations add to a heaping list of legal issues facing the former President that could threaten his finances and possibly his freedom.
Out of office and without the protections that the presidency afforded him,
Trump is now facing multiple criminal investigations, civil state inquiries and defamation lawsuits by two women accusing him of sexual assault.

The pressure comes as Trump weighs his future in politics and in business with the Trump Organization, which has already been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, also losing corporate partnerships following Trump's January 6 speech whipping up the crowd.

In the three weeks since Trump left the White House, the multiple legal threats he faces have increased and become more imminent.
