Oracle Is Said to Win Deal for TikTok's U.S. Operations

Source: Bloomberg

Oracle Corp. is the winning bidder for a deal with TikTok’s U.S. operations, people familiar with the talks said, after main rival Microsoft Corp. said its offer for the video app was rejected.

ByteDance Ltd., TikTok’s parent, turned down Microsoft’s previous bid to buy TikTok’s U.S. assets. A deal with Oracle is narrower, appearing more like a corporate restructuring than an outright sale, one of the people said.


One person familiar with the deliberations in the White House said it’s unclear whether a deal with Oracle will pass muster with the Trump administration, where various factions have been pushing for a complete shutdown or an outright sale of TikTok to an American company.


Oracle, a company with a closer relationship to the U.S. president, emerged as a bidder with the backing of Sequoia Capital, a key ByteDance shareholder.

Not to worry because Sarah Cooper is getting a Netflix special.

Joe Lieberman is a dick. End of story.


Tony Norman: The Protocols of the Elders of Zion 2.0: The rise of QAnon

President Trump's defenders want to save America from baby-eating Democrats

“The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” was published in English in 1919 and began making the rounds in America just as the second wave of the Spanish flu epidemic was crippling the country and extinguishing hope in the future.


European Jews faced pogroms and expulsion from many countries based on the rumor that they were kidnapping and murdering thousands of Christian children annually and ritually draining their blood to make Passover matzos.


The “Q” in QAnon is allegedly a government insider with knowledge of a vast conspiracy by “the Deep State” to thwart Donald Trump in his battle against a satanic baby-eating cabal of cannibals and pedophiles led by Hillary Clinton and the nation’s highest-ranking Democrats along with their Hollywood enablers Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Tom Hanks and the entire upper echelon of the industrial-entertainment complex. Sound familiar?


QAnon members believe they’ve received coded messages from Q and Mr. Trump at his rallies promising the imminent mass arrests of prominent Democrats involved in the disappearance of thousands of children around the world every year. They also believe that Mr. Trump has launched a “secret war” against satanic pedophiles that he’s “winning,” but the effort could lose momentum if Democrats recapture the White House in 2020.

Why do i think that Vlad Putin is helping to spread this crap to these QAnon clowns to cause problems here.


Bottom Line: Trump Has Killed America

Restaurants, football games, movies, jobs, dog shows, state and county fairs, schools, colleges,
universities, friends and family get togethers, health care workers, senior citizens, and on and on ....

Trump knew of and was told about the C-19 in Oct. & November of 2019 and this was after he had
disbanded the global pandemic task force, fired the CDC's epidmologist who was on the ground,
and got us out of PREDICT that was on the ground in Wuhan, China looking for the coronavirus
up until Sept. 2019.

Bottom Line: Trump Has Killed America

Who still believes Trump's bullshit?


Who is giving him those "high marks?"

Other countires are almost all doing a better job.

Vaccines are not coming fast either.

This is pure gas lighting.

Now this explains why Trump couldn't go to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery

He was too busy stealing knock off art from the US Embassy.



BTW The only crimes he hasn't done (that we know of) is cattle rustling and illegal gill net fishing.

Good God in Butter! Dr. Scott Atlas was a professor @ the Stanford's Med School?

I had never seen him speak before and I just saw 3 minutes on CNN and he is
either mentally ill and or just enjoys being an asshole. He was arguing that the
models on the # of projected C-19 deaths* is wrong because "they" have changed
the models and so that means that the current models are wrong. Or something
like that and when shown models that accuratly predicted the # of deaths and the
# of cases of the disease by the host he just filibusterd and talked over the host.

I was just a kid when this happened .... My friend's big brother .... Trump needs to be crushed


Poor guy was 2 weeks short of 19.

The US coronavirus death toll is projected to reach 410,000 in the next four months

Source: CNN

(CNN)A new model often cited by top health officials raised its projections Friday, predicting over 410,000 coronavirus deaths nationwide by January 1.

That would mean an additional 224,000 Americans lost in the next four months -- more than double the 186,000 deaths reported by Johns Hopkins University.

The model from the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation points to declining mask use in some regions from a peak in usage in early August. The scenarios in the model suggest 122,000 of those lives could be saved with near-universal mask use. It also warns the death toll could be much higher -- over 620,000 -- if all restrictions are eased.

"If a herd immunity strategy is pursued, meaning no further government intervention is taken from now to Jan 1st, the death toll could increase to 620,000,"

A federal agency now wants to bring back Obama's PREDICT program that Trump cut in 2019

NY Times U.S. Will Revive Global Virus-Hunting Effort Ended Last Year

A worldwide virus-hunting program allowed to expire last year by the Trump administration, just before the coronavirus pandemic broke out, will have a second life — whatever the outcome of the presidential election.


The expiration of Predict just weeks before the advent of the pandemic prompted wide criticism among scientists, who noted that the coronavirus is exactly the sort of catastrophic animal virus the program was designed to head off.


“Barack Obama and Joe Biden had a program, called Predict, that tracked emerging diseases in places like China,” she (the K-Bomb aka Senator Harris) said late in her 20-minute speech. “Trump cut it.”

The government agency that let Predict die last October has quietly created a $100 million program with a similar purpose as Predict, but it has a different name. The new program, set to begin in October, will be called Stop Spillover.

Predict, which was started in 2009 as part of the Obama administration’s Emerging Pandemic Threats program, was inspired by the 2005 H5N1 bird flu scare. Predict was run by the United States Agency for International Development, which is an independent foreign-aid agency overseen by the State Department.


Is there any doubt that Trump cut the program because it was "the black guy's idea." Predict had scientists on the ground in Wuhan, China in Oct of 2019 looking for viruses like C-19 and Trump stopped that program. We should not be going through this this viral nightmare right now.

Does anybody want to get that barn door?

But "they" changed the name from Predict to "Stop Spillover."
