  1. Kyle Griffin @kylegriffin1 · 1h Breaking: Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has issued an executive order requiring all Texans to wear a face covering in public in counties with 20 or more positive coronavirus cases.
  2. Seth Abramson @SethAbramson · 6h Just pointing out an obvious fact: that if Ghislaine Maxwell somehow dies in custody, there'll be the *same level* of recrimination as there was when Jeffrey Epstein died in custody —in other words, *none*. That gives no one anywhere any particular incentive to ensure her safety.
  3. Elie Honig @eliehonig SDNY just announced the Ghislaine Maxwell case - like the original Epstein case - is staffed by the Public Corruption Unit. I worked at SDNY and did sex trafficking cases. They do NOT run out of Public Corruption - unless there is some potential angle against a public official. 11:18 AM · Jul 2, 2020 =================================== BrooklynDad_Defiant! @mmpadellan · 4h SDNY is about to blow the whole lid off this thing, so long as Ghislaine Maxwell doesn't get "suicided."
  4. POLITICO @politico · Jeffrey Epstein associate Ghislaine Maxwell arrested British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell facilitated Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes by “helping Epstein to recruit, groom, and ultimately abuse ” girls as young as 14, according to an indictment made public today. It also said she participated in the sexual abuse...... "...........From the time federal prosecutors in New York charged Epstein last July with similar sex trafficking charges, they made clear they were investigating any and all accomplices who aided the late financier during what was a years-long practice of enticing teenage girls to visit his opulent homes and provide massages that involved sexual acts. The indictment of Maxwell tracks with the accounts of several victims by describing the heiress as a key player in recruiting and winning the trust of a steady stream of female teens to be abused by Epstein.......... https://www.politico.com/news/2020/07/02/ghislaine-maxwell-arrested-jeffrey-epstein-348053
  5. @SethAbramson · 5h I'm sure Donald Trump wouldn't mind Twitter users retweeting in the tens of thousands all the pictures of him with the woman who was arrested in New Hampshire today, of which massive photographic archive these are just four exemplars PS5/ This one's fun because it's like a peekaboo (see right side of photo) and you also get a royal in the bargain:
  6. Gov. Gavin Newsom @GavinNewsom · 5h #COVID19 continues to spread at an alarming rate. Effective immediately, 19 counties must close indoors operations for the following sectors: - Restaurants - Wineries - Movie theaters & family entertainment - Zoos, museums - Cardrooms Bars must close ALL operations.
  7. PBS NewsHour @NewsHour · 1h Richmond, Virginia, Mayor Stoney orders the immediate removal of all Confederate statues on city land, saying he was using his emergency powers to sipeed up the healing process for the former capital of the Confederacy. https://to.pbs.org/3gnBJQd
  8. Meet the Supporters Trump Has Lost A significant majority of people who voted for him in 2016 are planning to do so again. What is different about those who’ve had a change of heart? ".....More than 80 percent of the voters who won’t back Mr. Trump again agreed with the statement that he doesn’t behave the way a president ought to act. Their view is shared by 75 percent of registered voters across the battleground states. “He said he was going to, quote unquote, drain the swamp, and all he’s done is splashed around and rolled around in it,”....... .......a veteran in Big Rapids, Mich., said he planned to vote for Mr. Biden because “he’s got integrity, he tells the truth, he’s got compassion and empathy.” “Donald Trump represents the past,” he said, “and I believe that the Democrats and Joe Biden and the young people of the world are looking at the future. “I will never vote for another Republican in my life because of Donald Trump,” Mr. Smith added. “What changed? Well, three years.” https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/01/upshot/poll-trump-defectors-2020-election.html?smid=tw-share
  9. In a political moment shaped by the death of George Floyd, Trump has increasingly embraced the political legacy of George Wallace. @EliStokols looks at 72 hours of racist appeals. Trump, in a hole, digs deeper into racial incitement https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-07-01/trump-digs-deeper-racial-incitement
  10. President Trump breaks out 2016 playbook in 2020 campaign kickoff Fake news. Hillary. Lock her up. Build the wall. Trump played the hits. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-kick-off-election-florida-democrats-aim-win/story?id=63772223 - will the same *** work THIS time 'round??
  11. @DavidLauter In a political moment shaped by the death of George Floyd, Trump has increasingly embraced the political legacy of George Wallace. @EliStokols looks at 72 hours of racist appeals. Trump, in a hole, digs deeper into racial incitement “History will look at the Trump years as being a reactionary right-wing movement that saw America was becoming 60% nonwhite and panicked,” Brinkley said. “When the economy crashed and George Floyd was murdered, Trump had cement feet. He went back to a tired old playbook, and he lost the center in America. If you were a conservative, center-right voter, you’re now looking to get rid of him.” A raft of recent nonpartisan polls backs up that assessment....... see: https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-07-01/trump-digs-deeper-racial-incitement
  12. Trump, in a hole, digs deeper into racial incitement- "President Trump on Wednesday suggested that painting the words “Black Lives Matter” on New York City’s Fifth Avenue would amount to a “symbol of hate,” complaining that such an action would be “expensive” and “denigrating [to] this luxury Avenue.” That came shortly after a threat by the president to veto the Pentagon’s budget legislation should it include a measure to take the names of Confederate generals off military bases, which he denounced as being sponsored by “Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren (of all people!).” That came only hours after his declaration that he “may END” a federal housing regulation aimed at desegregating neighborhoods, which he claimed has had “a devastating impact” on America’s suburbs. And that came roughly a day after he re-tweeted a video of supporters in an almost entirely white Florida retirement community shouting “white power” from a golf cart......... “History will look at the Trump years as being a reactionary right-wing movement that saw America was becoming 60% nonwhite and panicked,” Brinkley said. “When the economy crashed and George Floyd was murdered, Trump had cement feet. He went back to a tired old playbook, and he lost the center in America. If you were a conservative, center-right voter, you’re now looking to get rid of him.” A raft of recent nonpartisan polls backs up that assessment......... “Things like today make me think we have an honorary member of the ‘boogaloo boys’ in the White House,” .......... “But it also forces the hand of a particular element of the Trump coalition — folks who have been concerned mainly about their stock portfolios and lower taxes and overlooked the rest,” he said. “At what point does it become reason enough to abandon him?” https://www.latimes.com/politics/story/2020-07-01/trump-digs-deeper-racial-incitement
  13. Charles Ornstein @charlesornstein · 5h At Lyndon B. Johnson Hospital in Houston, the medical staff ran out of both space for new coronavirus patients and remdesivir to treat them. A dozen COVID-19 patients who were in need of intensive care were stuck in the emergency room Internal Messages Reveal Crisis at Houston Hospitals as Coronavirus Cases Surge Texas was one of the first states in the nation to ease social distancing mandates. In Houston, the number of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 has quadrupled since Memorial Day. “It’s time to be alarmed,” one expert said. https://www.propublica.org/article/internal-messages-reveal-crisis-at-houston-hospitals-as-coronavirus-cases-surge
  14. Trump's resistance led intel agencies to brief him less and less on Russia ".........Early in his term, Trump's briefers discovered that when his oral briefing included intelligence related to Russia's malign activities against the United States, including evidence of its interference in US politics, Trump would often blow up at them, demanding to know why they kept focusing on Russia and often questioning the intelligence itself, multiple former administration officials said. "The President has created an environment that dissuades, if not prohibits, the mentioning of any intelligence that isn't favorable to Russia," a former senior member of Trump's national security staff told me......... https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/01/politics/trump-intel-briefings-russia/index.html
  15. Sam Brock @SamBrockNBC A “Face Mask Exempt Card” that doesn’t actually exempt you from anything. With a fraudulent Dept. of Justice seal- and backed by a ‘Freedom To Breathe Agency’ that doesn’t actually exis - federal agencies are warning people not to buy in to this scheme @NBCNightlyNews @NBCNews
  16. Why 'superspreaders' are so important for the spread of COVID-19 "In this video, we discuss what is a superspreader event (SSE) and why superspreader events are so important for the spread of SARS-CoV-2. Superspreading has also been called "dispersion". Several respected groups of researchers from Israel, the UK, and Hong Kong, have shown that only 10 to 20% of COVID-19 patients are responsible for 80% of secondary infections. So if we can prevent these superspreader events, we could prevent a second wave of infections. We also discuss cluster sites and their commonalities — the three Cs and superemitters and their impact on the spread..........
  17. Hundreds of Alumni of George W. Bush administration launch pro-Biden super PAC ......... "......We just feel the time now is to restore dignity to the White House, and the current gentleman is not, so that’s why we’re supporting Joe Biden,” 43 Alumni for Biden joins a slate of other GOP groups that have formed to oppose Trump, including The Lincoln Project, which has seen its profile rise over its biting attack ads against Trump. The newest super PAC intends to separate itself from other groups by solely focusing on positive messages to reinforce Biden’s campaign. “We are the only group within these other groups that were all 43 alums,” said Millikin. “And unlike ... The Lincoln Project and the other groups that we know of, they’re spending tons of money on ads and things of that nature, which is great. We’re going to raise money as well, we’re a super PAC, but our focus is not negative.” “We just want to focus on the positives, and the positive message to us is we need a gentleman who actually acts like a leader...." https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/505425-alumni-of-george-w-bush-administration-form-super-pac-to-back-biden
  18. Amy McGrath @AmyMcGrathKY · 5h American servicemembers are being targeted with Russian bounties. As a Marine, I'm disgusted that nothing's been done about it. Mitch, you get regular security briefings. What did you know and when did you know it? Man up and tell the truth. #MoscowMitch
  19. Davis in one of my fav EVIL BETTE roles (along w/"Little Foxes")......
  20. Joe Biden’s press conference and the Fox “news side” racket "........Fox executives frequently try to defray the controversies created by the bigoted right-wing propagandists on its “opinion side” by talking up the purportedly credible reporting of its “news side.” But as the McKelway case demonstrates, the network’s reportorial corps largely exists to advance the stories its demagogues are obsessed with............ ....The exchange with Biden about “cognitive decline” quickly vaulted to the top of Fox News’ website and has since been discussed on Fox programs including The Daily Briefing, Bill Hemmer Reports, Your World with Neil Cavuto, Special Report, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, Fox News @ Night, Fox & Friends First, Fox & Friends, and America's Newsroom. For his part, during a turn on Bill Hemmer’s program, McKelway claimed, “There’s speculation -- and it is widespread, there’s no hiding it anymore -- that based upon several gaffes that Biden has made in recent months and even in recent years, that he is experiencing the first effects of some sort of mild dementia or cognitive impairment.” And that’s the difference between Fox’s “news” and “opinion” side. The “opinion” side speculates; what makes it “news” is reporting that other people are speculating." https://www.mediamatters.org/sean-hannity/joe-bidens-press-conference-and-fox-news-side-racket
  21. ".....Among them: — Knock it off, Russia. — Wear a mask, Americans. — Systemic racism must end. None of the above are particularly bold or controversial messages. ..........But such words do not come easily to Trump — and his silence emboldens those who reject these messages and contributes to the cascading crises that now engulf the White House and have put his reelection in peril. “People now require a serious man with a serious message and don’t feel like they have it,”.......... .....The combination of the virus, the racial unrest and economic upheaval, Jillson says, has got Trump supporters reevaluating their past inclination to be mildly amused by the chaos he sows and left them asking: “’Am I still entertained? Am I still comfortable? Am I still willing to take the uncertainty?”
