How is Richard Epstein still able to publish articles that aren't laughed into oblivion?

Below is a very interesting look back at the entire saga of NYU/Hoover Institute’s Richard Epstein weighing in on COVID19.

What is worse than his original horrendous writing is the fact that he and/or others at Hoover have tried diligently to hide just how pathetically bad his own original model was.

I also include for your reading pleasure the brilliant takedown of Richard Epstein by New Yorker reporter Isaac Chotiner

As well as the now HIGHLY edited Hoover article by Epstein

Has anyone on Twitter notices the recent rise in fake news the left is amplifying?

It is unnerving for me. Dems and others opposed to Trump have been very fact-based in their opposition. But last day or so public people I follow are starting to post garbage rumors like Trump is suddenly moving USN Comfort from NYC to Louisiana.

I sure hope we aren’t going to see more of 2016 with Russian trolls trying to spew misinformation.

Anybody have any good lines on Project Rasputin and Michael Caputo?

Would be curious to know what that was all about and if it is still operational.

Caputo is long time buds with Roger Stone and Caputo has also spent years in Russia helping Kremlin.

Ow that Caputo is being installed as Comms chief for Health and Human Services, the hairs on the back of my neck are tingling

China is undercounting, Florida is undercounting, many deaths aren't being reported as COVID19

In Spain, Italy, US and one would assume other countries where the pandemic has taken hold like Iran, France, etc the spike in deaths above average/typical deaths per week but which are not classified as COVID19 are likely CoVID.

With all of the noise due to lack of testing, spikes in the very ill and lack of hospital capacity plus sheer evil of governments trying to hide the true reach of this...it could be many years before the world gets a statistically valid and scientifically grounded estimate on just how many die in the COVID19 pandemic.

Ok. I am going to be a jerk here and present you a false choice

If you had to choose from these 2 options and had guarantees these 2 options would occur depending on 2020 election:

A)Trump wins second term but serves a life sentence in prison

B)Trump loses in 2020 but serves no time in prison

Which would you prefer?

Sanders has openly endorsed Biden. The Squad (AOC et al) can sit down

National politics This year is not about individual Dems holding the Dem Party hostage in their specific pet projects—it is about joining forces and GETTING THINGS DONE!

Nothing gets accomplished until GOP is in minority in the Senate and Trump is gone.

FOCUS, people!!!

AOC and Omar should take advice from Pelosi about how to have an impact in Washington DC.

This has been a great forum!!!!!!

Congrats to Biden and the Democratic Party—

Here’s hoping very soon not only Sanders but all of the previous candidates will come together to clearly communicate to the American people and the world that we are united in our effort to elect Biden to the White House and send the #miserablefailure Trump packing (and hopefully to prison soon after.

Barack Obama's statement on Joe Biden



Yes, it is from some time back, but this is the high regard Obama holds Biden in.

I AM energized! Can't believe Biden went from never winning a primary

In multiple presidential runs to now being the presumptive nominee and he did it on a shoe string budget and after coming out of Iowa/New Hampshire/Nevada with no wins.

I donated to him early and will be donating again tonight!
