Netanyahu’s cruel, booby-trapped inauguration gift to Joe Biden, @GershomG writes

2/We first heard about Yan in July when she went on Fox for the 1st time. She claimed that the Chinese govt had concealed H2H transmission & her HKU profs knew. It struck us as strange- we already knew about the cover-up & she didn't offer any concrete proof for her other claims.


NEW: The making of a misinformation campaign - how Steve Bannon & Guo Wengui transformed a HK researcher into a right-wing virus media sensation. Our look at the growing convergence b/w the far-right and parts of the Chinese diaspora.

14 men charged in kidnapping plot of Michigan governor had plan to televise executions of gov’t. officials: report


This is Amy Coney Barrett’s first vote as a justice in an execution case. It appears* she voted with the majority to let the execution to take place. 6–3, liberals dissenting. *Technically justices can dissent from emergency orders without noting it, but that’s highly unlikely.

As if their farcical assault on democracy were not enough, the Trump administration is deliberately damaging US and allied interests around the world in order to harm the Biden administration


“I’m more troubled that you’re seeing a lot of Republican officials go along with it, not because they actually believe it, but because they feel intimidated by it,” former Pres. Obama says of Pres. Trump's attempts to overturn election results
