Apologies. Have no idea why Typepad puts your comments into the spam folder, from where I regularly dig them out and post them. You are not on my block list, but will soon be there if continue accusing me of censoring readers' comments because of their ideological or interpretive content. That I have never done, and will never do - especially for dyed-in-wool leftists like you. You progressives and socialists are the grist for RR debates which otherwise would look like all the usual leftwing monotone echo chambers. Just keep lavishing us with your ideas and worldviews, and cut your baseless accusations.

Here is on for the trollish set -

Researchers at the Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan have found that early administration of the drug hydroxychloroquine makes hospitalized patients substantially less likely to die.

The study, published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases, determined that hydroxychloroquine provided a "66% hazard ratio reduction," and hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin a 71 percent reduction, compared to neither treatment.

In-hospital mortality was 18.1 percent with both drugs, 13.5 percent with just hydroxychloroquine, 22.4 percent with azithromycin alone, and 26.4 percent with neither drug. "Prospective trials are needed" for further review, the researchers note.

"Our results do differ from some other studies," Dr. Marcus Zervos, who heads the hospital's infectious diseases unit, said at a news conference. "What we think was important in ours ... is that patients were treated early. For hydroxychloroquine to have a benefit, it needs to begin before the patients begin to suffer some of the severe immune reactions that patients can have with COVID."

and it's yet another study that left off the zinc, which Didier Raoult in Marselles and the Hassidic MD in NYC were both keen on using.

At least they didn't give toxic doses to patients who had been suffering from the virus longer than they should have... I expect to start demanding HCQ/Az/Zn on first symptoms or test result. Just give it to me Doc or I will be shopping for another doc, starting right about now.

Delicious for them when they inflict pain.

Let’s see. 2010? Did she mean she liked Donald Trump or she liked the Apprentice or some crack she read that Donald made in the NY tabloids? What was Donald doing ten years ago? Oh, he was getting all these awards from groups of black civil rights organizations, large and small, national...the biggies. Sitting next to Ali, Jesse, Al, and Rosa Parks. All the NY local neighborhood black leaders said Donald Trump never turned them down once when asking for money to build a gym or something needed.

Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert Wilkie told "Bill Hemmer Reports" Friday that approval of his department among veterans is at an "all-time high."

"Veterans are now, under this administration, voting with their feet," Wilkie told host Jon Scott.
Wilkie explained that under his and President Trump's leadership, the VA is seeing a 90 percent "trust-and-approval" rating. He added that the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization did their own survey and essentially validated those figures after polling their members.

Getting close to home. No wonder Trump is stalling on his speech tonight. Fox is getting frustrated.

"Trump Jr’s girlfriend tests positive for COVID-19 in South Dakota ahead of the president’s event: report."

“Ms. Guilfoyle traveled to South Dakota with Mr. Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr., in anticipation of attending a huge fireworks display where the president was set to speak. They did not travel aboard Air Force One, according to the person familiar with her condition, and she was the only person in the group who tested positive,” the newspaper reported. “Still, that another person who was expected to be near Mr. Trump tested positive — and someone who most staff aides consider a member of the Trump family — is likely to renew attention around potential risks to the president.”

Looks like creepy grampa joe and the mob are on the wrong side of this -

The latest Rasmussen Reports survey finds 75 percent of likely U.S. voters oppose closing or changing Mt. Rushmore in Keystone, South Dakota. Less than 20 percent said they support the removal of Mt. Rushmore.

By a 56-percent majority, black Americans said they oppose tearing down Mt. Rushmore, while only about 35 percent said they support removing the monument. Likewise, more than six-in-ten Democrats, 76 percent of swing voters, 82 percent of white Americans, and 88 percent of Republican voters said they oppose tearing down Mt. Rushmore.

The Rasmussen Reports survey also asked likely voters if they opposed or supported removing statues in honor of Presidents George Washington and Thomas Jefferson from public places. More than 70 percent of all likely voters said they opposed tearing down statues dedicated to the two men.

Majorities in every racial, income, age, gender, political, and educational attainment group said they oppose tearing down statues and buildings honoring Washington and Jefferson — including 54 percent of black Americans, 78 percent of white Americans, 57 percent of Democrats, 83 percent of Republicans, and 75 percent of swing voters.

Trump At Mount Rushmore: ‘Left-Wing Cultural Revolution Is Designed To Overthrow The American Revolution"

https://www.dailywire.com/news/trump-at-mount-rushmore-left-wing-cultural-revolution-is-designed-to-overthrow-the-american-revolution

scenes

I admit that the speech scans nicely...

"1776 represented the culmination of thousands of years of Western civilization and the triumph of not only spirit, but of wisdom, philosophy, and reason. And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled, they bled to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children. Angry mobs are trying to tear down statues of our founders, deface our most sacred memorials, and unleash a wave of violent crime in our cities. Many of these people have no idea why they’re doing this, but some know what they are doing. They think the American people are weak and soft and submissive, but no, the American people are strong and proud and they will not allow our country and all of its values, history, and culture to be taken from them."

"One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America."

"This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty must be stopped and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children from this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life. In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us."

"Make no mistake. This left-wing cultural revolution is designed to overthrow the American Revolution. In so doing they would destroy the very civilization that rescued billions from poverty, disease, violence, and hunger, and that lifted humanity to new heights of achievement, discovery, and progress. To make this possible, they are determined to tear down every statue, symbol, and memory of our national heritage."

You know, that's just the simple truth.

We're way beyond arguing about DACA, some corner of environmental law, or national health policy. The DNC and Democratic party have made allies of something it helped let out of the bottle and thinks it can control. Our local useful idiots have shown how well crafted this thing, basically an insurgency, really is.

Walt @ 7:13 PM

Copied this from my previous comment made on RR 26 March 2020 @ 1:41PM

"Part of the reply to my email (3/25) to Michael Lockshin, MD, a rheumatologist at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NYC.

"Indeed, there are a number of people, including those at our institution and at the American College of Rheumatology, the Lupus Research Alliance, American Autoimmune and Related Diseases Association, and others who are trying to coordinate efforts to understand not only lupus and rheumatoid arthritis but also hydroxychloroquine (-C) and coronavirus. You probably have heard that New York State has just initiated controlled clinical trials for treatment of COVID-19 to see whether hydroxychloroquine does or does not work (available data are not sufficient to say that it does)."

This in response to the well-known use of -C for treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Lupus, both auto-immune diseases, with over 2M diagnosed with those diseases. Even if there is only a 1% prescription rate for them, that makes 20,000+ patients who have been taking -C for over 3 months, or years. Some RA patients have been on the chloros for over 20 years (personal info from my daughter, a PharmD). They are now potential subjects for an on-going experiment that they never even knew they were a part of just 6 months ago.

So with our all-intrusive NSA-snooping, you would think that finding out all those patients who have been taking -C for a long time, we would know if they contract the Wuhan Virus (WV) at all, or have fewer symptoms, or have no difference from someone who has never been on -C. So a simple 8th grade Hypothesis = "If -C is effective, 1- expect fewer RA/Lupus patients to get WV, or 2- the effects of WV are lessened from 10?? days to 5?? days, or 3- no effect, it was a stupid hypothesis." if anyone has reduced susceptibility to WV, it should be these RA patients.

Dr. Lockshin (on the hss.edu website) has said that the -C takes up to 3 months before the body is 'full-up' to fight Lupus.

So -C seems to have a half-life of a few weeks to a month, both going up, as well as discontinuing -C. So if any benefit is found in short-term relief (say 2 weeks of dosing in trials just started) for the WV, then this response should be blindingly evident in the fact that RA/Lupus patients don't contract the WV at all, or the same, as those not on -C. These RA patients would have their immune systems 'full-up' with -C.

It seems that this should be low-hanging fruit, even with HIPAA rules. But I haven't found anyone examining the 20,000+ already on -C and whether they are more or less susceptible to WV. All the studies seem to have been started within the last couple weeks. Where is the NIH on this?"

I sent the above note to 15-20 docs/organizations, including those mentioned by Dr Lockshin above, and there were no comments back other than from Dr Lockshin himself. Still have yet (it's been 3 months now) to see mentioned the effects of the Wuhan virus on RA/Lupus patients who should have been dying in the streets if HCQ is useless. For gosh sakes, their immune system is already compromised pretty severely - they should have been among the first to die.

George Rebane

TRUMP AT MOUNT RUSHMORE [WITH COMMENT BY JOHN]

“In the vicious culture war that is dividing our nation, President Trump has taken the side of the United States. This is what I get out of Trump’s speech at Mount Rushmore last night in South Dakota. For this — for his advocacy of the United States in the culture war — Trump will never be forgiven by the our cultural arbiters. This is what I get get out of the absurd AP story “Trump pushes racial division, flouts virus rules at Rushmore.””

“We can infer several things: 1) Trump was effective. 2) “Dark” means he spoke about things the Left would prefer that voters not focus on. 3) The Left thinks it will lose the culture war.”

Thanks Walt for the update.

Oh, the rumor mill. Warning hun, they are about raid our farm. “He’s not answering his phone!!” Pretty weird. Can’t find any good updates since yours last night. Checked Yuba.net this am, not updated there either. Guess it is wise and prudent to not telegraph the suspect any info...

Brother Walt @ 5:08 pm .

Happy 4th of July. Yep, the consensus last night was it is getting dark, some LE are getting lost already and few know that area well. I don’t. Sheriffs getting lost at night is probably not the ideal search and capture teams. :). Helicopter flew after dark. All in all, you had the most timely reports, with little to work with.

Another consensus is that if the suspect knows the back area and trails, he could make it up to La Porte and if he really knows the trails, he could damn near walk to Reno. :).

Much more than a needle in a haystack. Even if he doesn’t know the area like the back of his hand, he could turn down some old logging road and find plenty of places to hide. He is going to be looking for food soon enough.

"Media Outlets Describe Trump’s Rushmore Speech As ‘Dark’ And ‘Divisive’"

Perhaps it just means that Trump is against that bright cleansing light from burning buildings.

It seems to me that the morality of looting, statue toppling, and cancel culture is just something that the two parties will have to agree to disagree on.

The fact that the Left has gone all-in on the destruction of Western Civilization at least shows honesty on their part.

I don't think it's school shooters that's the problem, it's the students. Plenty o' stories on that subject out there.

That'll be a wonderful social experiment. Maybe removing any semblance of security will make for perfectly behaved kids plus their friends from off campus. It could happen I tell you.

It's pure street theater of course. Somebody went out and bought a bunch of tacticool gear and, owing to the rarity of a lot of the rifles, quite a few airsoft firearms, but by golly it looks cool.

If we could get them to guard stores, homes, and monuments and stand up for people who got fired for a trivial tweet, you'd really have something there.

NIGHTMARE AT OBERLIN

“Now, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit has ruled that a male student may proceed with a claim of sex discrimination against Oberlin for railroading him out of the college for alleged sexual assault. The case was filed under Title IX, which bars universities that receive federal funds from discriminating against students based on their sex.

Although the male student will now be able to present his claim against Oberlin, he still has suffered through a nightmare that even a successful lawsuit will not fully mitigate.

For purposes of determining whether the male student can proceed with his case, the facts he asserts must be taken as true. However, the basic facts here are undisputed, or were until the woman who accused the student of assault changed her story.”

‘Amid a pandemic, the woke-ist media are experiencing a psychotic break’

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/amid-a-pandemic-the-woke-ist-media-are-experiencing-a-psychotic-break

“Lastly, ABC News published a report this week titled “New government data, shared first with ABC News, shows the country's premier outdoor spaces – the 419 national parks – remain overwhelmingly white.”

The story’s headline reads, “America's national parks face existential crisis over race,” adding in the subhead, “A mostly white workforce, visitation threatens parks' survival and public health.”

“Just 23% of visitors to the parks were people of color,” the report adds, “77% were white. Minorities make up 42% of the U.S. population.”

As it turns out, white people really enjoy hiking and camping, and that is a problem for the parks, the ABC News report claims, because people of color will be a majority in America by 2044. The article then goes on to quote outdoor enthusiasts of color who say they do not feel welcome at the “overwhelmingly white” national parks. These advocates, the article reads, “say they hope the moment since George Floyd's death in police custody brings attention to systemic racism in the outdoors as well as other parts of society and translates into a long-term change in attitudes and behavior.”

Sorry, everyone. Even national parks are racist now.

This is not normal behavior from our press. This is a mental breakdown in the works. People of the future will look at all this and wonder how on earth these stories made it into print.“

BillT : "Sorry, everyone. Even national parks are racist now."

I'd been reading about that for some time, but I'm still musing on the underlying purpose.

Maybe Mary 'n Paul could break cover to explain why national parks are racist, 24/7 Trumphate has to be boring after a while.

My leading contenders for the nat'l park brouhaha are:

1. Just another thing to bitch about to the white devils, clickbait.
2. $$$$. A cover to move resources from the park system to those super duper important issues like midnight basketball. Of course, a lot of cash has to cross the palms of the appropriate 'non-profits' (btw, congrats to SBC for snagging $165k in taxpayer money for one of those ever-useful studies contracts).
3. ???

What would number 3 or beyond be? Genuinely curious.

I bet our own little Yuba River State Park with 700,000 visitors a year (snicker, snicker) is problematic as well because I don’t see 44% of the visitors being persons of color. Racist! Maybe some preferred parking spots reversed for non-whites is in order....like right quick. Nevada City Libs can drive to the river, find a spot to park up the Hwy, and gather around and bow to those in the reserved spots for POCs. Maybe slip each of them a ten and apologize for being part of systemic racists at our state parks.

The trollish set should turn their eyes away to avoid the PAIN, OH THE PAIN OF IT ALL! -

The early economic signs indicate that we may already be in a “V”-shaped recovery — or at the very least a strong checkmark-shaped recovery — as we cautiously emerge from the coronavirus shutdown.

As Federal Reserve Bank Chairman Jay Powell admitted earlier this week, we have experienced a welcome “bounce back in economic activity,” and “have done so sooner than expected.” The economic data from the past two months make the point.

The May jobs report gave us the first indication that the post-pandemic rebound would be something special, revealing that employers had created a record-shattering 2.5 million jobs in a single month, beating economists' expectations for a loss of around 9 million jobs.

Most economists anticipated that the trend would continue, but few foresaw just how stellar the June jobs report turned out to be. Last month, the country gained a mind-boggling 4.8 million new jobs, blowing past consensus expectations of around 3.7 million. As an added bonus, last month’s total was revised upward by nearly 200,000 jobs, bring the two-month gain to 7.5 million jobs.

Tammy Bruce: Trump prioritizing law and order with move to protect monuments from mob
Kay Coles James: Nation's values under attack — we must do this to stop the left's socialist agenda

Dale Wilcox: Stop abusing visa system — Corporate America must hire homegrown talent
Even though the labor force participation rate rose sharply, meaning more people began looking for work, the nationwide unemployment rate nonetheless plummeted in June by more than two full percentage points, falling from 13.3 percent to 11.1 percent, also beating economists’ expectations of a 0.8 of a percentage point decrease to 12.5 percent.

Those are some incredible numbers! But what else were we seeing in the economy?

In May, retail sales increased by a record 17.7 percent, soundly beating economists’ expectations of around 8.4 percent. This increase in retail sales — following three months of declines — bodes well for a return to positive economic growth. Consumer spending accounts for about two-thirds of our economic output, and retail sales account for about a quarter of consumer spending.

The city that never sleeps is in a coma. Is that what comrade Deblasio always wanted? -

Parts of Manhattan, famously the ‘city that never sleeps’, have begun to resemble a ghost town since 500,000 mostly wealthy and middle-class residents fled when Covid-19 struck in March.

New York state has suffered the highest death toll in America, with more than 24,000 dead, nearly 10,000 more than the second-hardest hit state, New Jersey, and eight times the number killed by terrorists on 9/11.

Streets once teeming with tourists are virtually empty. Shops and restaurants are boarded up to protect against looters. Hotels are closed. According to one resident: ‘New York has become a place where the soup kitchens are full and skyscrapers are empty.’

The Broadway theatre district sits in darkness, unlikely to open before next year. The subway, which once carried 750,000 commuters a day, is mainly deserted. In Times Square, a handful of street vendors offer hand-sanitiser and face masks in place of knock-off designer sunglasses and bags.

"Many powerful people connected to Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell — including Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew and Leslie Wexner — could be “extremely worried right now” following Maxwell’s arrest — because she wrongly believed they were protecting her.

Steven Hoffenberg, a former business associate of Epstein’s (and who temporarily managed the New York Post in 1993), said, “She’s going to be naming some big names — not only in terms of those who abused underage girls at Epstein’s parties — but also those who made financial agreements with Epstein or benefited from his generosity, including flying on his plane and staying at his homes.”
