@SenatorTimScott is a liar and @LeaderMcConnell 's puppet. His proposed police "reform" was a joke

is a liar and @LeaderMcConnell
's puppet.

His proposed police "reform" was a joke.

Among other things, it allowed police to still choke people to death without any consequences.

Now he wants to blame Democrats.

Hey Tim, sell your bullshit elsewhere. Sellout.

Vast Fortunes Will Be Made in Obscure Metals Behind Clean Power


The shift from fossil fuels to clean energy will accelerate demand for metals like lithium, cobalt and rare earths, a potential bonanza for investors. The transition could require as much as $173 trillion in energy supply and infrastructure investment over the next three decades, Andrew Janes, David Stringer and Adrian Leung report.

'Vigilante treatments': Anti-vaccine groups push people to leave ICUs

Source: nbc news

As the anti-vaccine movement escalates its rhetoric, doctors warn that they're dealing with the fallout: "They’re starting to target people, the messengers — nurses and doctors."

Anti-vaccine Facebook groups have a new message for their community members: Don’t go to the emergency room, and get your loved ones out of intensive care units.

Consumed by conspiracy theories claiming that doctors are preventing unvaccinated patients from receiving miracle cures or are even killing them on purpose, some people in anti-vaccine and pro-ivermectin Facebook groups are telling those with Covid-19 to stay away from hospitals and instead try increasingly dangerous at-home treatments, according to posts seen by NBC News over the past few weeks.

The messages represent an escalation in the mistrust of medical professionals in groups that have sprung up in recent months on social media platforms, which have tried to crack down on Covid misinformation. And it’s something that some doctors say they’re seeing manifest in their hospitals as they have filled up because of the most recent delta variant wave.
Anti-vaccine groups use code words, change to 'dance parties' to hide from Facebook

“We were down to four Covid patients two months ago. In this surge, we’ve had 40 to 50 patients with Covid on four different ICU services, 97 percent of them unvaccinated,” said Wes Ely, an ICU doctor and professor of medicine at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. “We were making headway, and now we’re just losing really, really badly. There’s something that’s happening on the internet, and it’s dramatically increasing steam.”

Those concerns echo various local reports about growing threats and violence directed toward medical professionals. In Branson, Missouri, a medical center recently introduced panic buttons on employee badges because of a spike in assaults. Violence and threats against medical professionals have recently been reported in Massachusetts, Texas, Georgia and Idaho...........................................................

Difficult and sad to believe no can--? can they STOP this dangerous trend.

Here's the full story about "vigilante medicine" on ivermectin Facebook.

Antivaxxers are starting to wrap doctors and ICUs into their dark conspiracy theories, as they suffer at home with ad-hoc COVID treatments that don't work.

I hope you read it.

Ivermectin believers have become 'radicalized' and now advocate 'inhaling food-grade hydrogen peroxide': reporter


September 24, 2021

Believers in treating COVID-19 with ivermectin have reportedly branched out in terms of their recommended treatments for the virus, which now include inhaling food-grade hydrogen peroxide.

NBC News reporter Ben Collins, who follows multiple pro-ivermectin and anti-vaccine Facebook groups, writes on Twitter that many of these groups have now become "radicalized" and are pushing for even more exotic remedies for COVID-19.

The problem these groups are encountering, writes Collins, is that their followers have quickly learned that ivermectin alone won't do the trick.

"So," writes Collins. "They developed a makeshift 'protocol.'"........................



Obviously, keep taking the ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, the ivermectin groups say.

But also gargle iodine. Buy a nebulizer and inhale food-grade hydrogen peroxide.

Anything but the vaccine.


As they’re home self-medicating, antivaxxers are furious that friends and family won’t be administered ivermectin at the hospital.

So they’ve developed directions on how to get loved ones out of ICUs: put them in hospice care, then get them the miracle cures from YouTube.

They’ve developed elaborate conspiracy theories about doctors and nurses in the process.

They believe ventilators and remdesivir are secretly drowning patients’ lungs, not COVID itself.

QAnon boards have begun calling hospitals to harass workers for not prescribing ivermectin.


Ivermectin Facebook is a wildly dark scene, an inverted reality where medical consensus is an elaborate conspiracy to kill you and random people on Facebook have the secret cure.

As Dr. Aditi Nerurkar tells me, "They’re starting to target the messengers—nurses and doctors.”


'You've disgraced this country': Judge angrily shames MAGA rioter during heated court hearing

Source: raw story

September 24, 2021

A judge appointed by former President George W. Bush angrily shamed an accused MAGA rioter on Friday during a heated court hearing.

Politico reports that U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton "shouted" at defendant Anthony Mariotto shortly after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge related to his participation in the January 6th riots at the United States Capitol building.

"You've disgraced this country in the eyes of the world and my inclination would be to lock you up, but since the government isn't asking me to do that... I won't," said Walton, referring to sentencing guidelines that did not request prison time for Mariotto, who pleaded guilty to a single charge of illegally parading or protesting in the Capitol.


"I find it outrageous that American citizens would do what you did, so you better walk the straight and narrow, sir, you understand?" he asked........................

I think this is one of the better things a judge could do--publicly shame them. Some rioters may be affected hopefully.


CNN panel roars with laughter at Trump's 'Cyber Nimrods' for botching their own audit

Not even the Ninjas could save Trump from humiliation.

September 24, 2021

A CNN panel on Friday openly laughed at Cyber Ninjas, the vote "auditors" praised by former President Donald Trump who failed to prove that President Joe Biden stole the 2020 election.


Host Jake Tapper asked Republican strategist Alice Stewart to comment on the results of the "audit," which confirmed that Biden really did receive more votes in Arizona than Trump did.

"Those are the president's own Cyber Nimrods," Stewart said.

"They call themselves 'Cyber Ninjas,'" Tapper corrected.

"I know," Stewart replied as she and the other panelists burst into laughter.

"Okay, I just wanted to make sure that wasn't a mistake," said a smiling Tapper.




Greene heckles Democrats and they fire back on Capitol steps

By Scott Wong - 09/24/21 01:18 PM EDT

Conservative Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) heckled House Democrats on the steps of the Capitol on Friday, leading to several heated verbal altercations with veteran Democrats that were in full view of the assembled media.

Dozens of Democrats were assembled on the Capitol steps preparing to hold a news conference on their efforts to help women when Greene, known as MTG, began shouting at them for having just passed legislation to protect abortion rights, a response to a recent Texas law banning abortions.


"You should try the basic thing you're taught in church: Respect your neighbor!" Dingell said.

“Try being a Christian and supporting life ...” Greene retorted.

“You try being a Christian!” Dingell interjected, repeatedly jabbing the air with her finger. "And try treating your colleagues decently!"..................................
