24 hours later, no news source has reported on it.

Indictments will happen when they happen.

Arkansas doctor under investigation for prescribing parasite pill thousands of times for Covid-19

Source: CNN

The Arkansas Medical Board is investigating after a doctor said he prescribed an anti-parasitic drug "thousands" of times for treatment of Covid-19, including to inmates in an Arkansas jail.

The FDA has been warning against the use of ivermectin for treatment of Covid-19 since March. The drug is used to treat parasitic infections, primarily in livestock, and the CDC recently cautioned about an increase in reports to poison centers of severe illness caused by the drug.

Justice of the Peace Eva Madison raised the issue during a county budget hearing in Fayetteville on Tuesday, saying a county employee had told her the jail's medical provider was prescribing ivermectin to treat and prevent Covid-19.

Tropical Storm Ida forms, could hit US Gulf Coast as major hurricane

Tropical Storm Ida formed on Thursday afternoon, and AccuWeather forecasters said it was becoming much more likely that parts of the central Gulf Coast would need to prepare for a strike from a major hurricane late Sunday or early Monday.

In anticipation of this, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) issued several watches on Thursday evening. A storm surge watch was hoisted from the Texas/Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border, with a tropical storm watch from the Mississippi/Alabama to the Alabama/Florida border. Meanwhile, a hurricane watch was in effect from Cameron, Louisiana to the Mississippi/Alabama border. This includes Lake Pontchartrain and New Orleans


Kathy Hochul sworn in as New York's first female governor

Source: Axios

New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) was sworn in as the state's 57th governor early Tuesday, following former Gov. Andrew Cuomo's resignation amid allegations of sexual misconduct.

Why it matters: Hochul is the first woman to serve as governor of New York and will serve out the remainder of Cuomo's term until 2022.

Hochul has already announced her bid for governor in 2022, the first Democrat to do so after Cuomo said he would resign.

Hochul has vowed that no one will ever call her workplace "toxic," per AP.

"Not with a bang, but a whimper"


Hochul Appoints 2 Women to Key Posts in Her Cabinet (NY)

Source: New York

A day before Kathy Hochul becomes the first female governor of New York State, she announced that her top two aides will be women, too.

Karen Persichilli Keogh, who is known in political circles by her initials “KPK,” will become secretary to the governor, the highest-ranking appointed position in the state. She will succeed Melissa DeRosa, who was the first woman to hold the position. In a tweet, Ms. DeRosa described Ms. Keogh as a “superstar.”

Ms. Keogh’s appointment, along with the selection of Elizabeth Fine as Ms. Hochul’s counsel, means that a trio of women will be at the helm of the executive branch roiled by allegations of sexual harassment by the outgoing governor.

Both Ms. Keogh and Ms. Fine are longtime political hands whose experience in New York City and Washington could help Ms. Hochul navigate the state’s opaque political waters.

You can't put one over on the QANON crowd...

Trump is not stupid. He knows we do not support the Vax. So why draw attention to it last night?
Where did he choose to hold this rally?
Cullman Alabama. CULL. MAN.
Other than his "everything woke turns to shit" statement, the only thing that will be remembered from last night is us booing the vaccine. In fact, the media will probably drone on and on about that moment for weeks to come.
He purposefully drew attention to the vaccine, in a place named CULLMAN.
Ya'll seein what I'm seein here?


Trump rallies have standards…
