Chuck Schumer live - Amy Covid Barrett travesty


Judge dismisses 3rd-degree murder charge against Derek Chauvin, other charges remain

MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - A Hennepin County judge has dismissed the third-degree murder charge against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, but denied the defense's motions to dismiss the other charges against him. Chauvin remains charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.

Judge Peter A. Cahill issued several critical rulings Thursday. He also denied the motions to dismiss the aiding and abetting charges against the other three officers charged in Floyd’s death: Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng and Thomas Lane.

Judge Cahill stayed the dismissal of Chauvin's third-degree murder charge for five days to allow the state to appeal the ruling.

guess this means the evidence for 2nd-degree murder is stronger?

Joe Biden leads President Trump in Pennsylvania with at least 5 points in four new polls.


The worst of five recent polls has Biden up 5 in PA.

Hillary lost PA by about 4 votes per precinct. If Biden takes PA conclusively, this election isn’t going to be a nail-biter

I Should Have Worn a Mask - Chris Christie

For seven months I was very careful about mask wearing, social distancing and hand washing. As someone with asthma, I knew I faced heightened risk. Then, at the Rose Garden nomination event for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, and during debate preparations with President Trump, I let my guard down and left my mask off. I mistook the bubble of security around the president for a viral safe zone. I was wrong. There is no safe zone from this virus.

Three days after the presidential debate, I still felt fine. Then—all within 24 hours—came the fever, chills and body aches, severe pain and utter exhaustion, and hospitalization in the intensive-care unit. A week in the ICU offers time to reflect. I was fortunate to have good insurance, a fine hospital and the latest treatments. But I was also conscious of the virus’s unpredictability. My doctors came in twice a day, told me I was doing better, and warned me that I could take a turn for the worse at any minute. Everyone in the hospital with Covid hangs on a thin thread.

When you get this disease, it hits you how easy it is to prevent. We are asked to wear cloth over our mouth and nose, wash our hands and avoid crowds. These minor inconveniences can save your life, your neighbors and the economy. Seldom has so little been asked for so much benefit. Yet the message will be broadly heeded only if it is consistently and honestly delivered by the media, religious leaders, sports figures and public servants. Those in positions of authority have a duty to get the message out.


This doesn’t settle the larger political and scientific debate on how fast to reopen businesses and institutions. I remain a supporter of both strong public-health measures and rapid reopening. If leaders level with the American people, we can trust in the outcome. When Americans are given proper and consistent information, they will overwhelmingly make good health choices, including the wearing of masks. But that doesn’t work if partisan media and public officials send mixed messages.

Looks like he hasn’t quite fully realized the error of his ways

Anyone remember the whining "Papa" John Schnatter made about Obama if he was re-elected?

An Orlando area aviation mfr company CEO (who’s donated MASSIVE amounts to trump) is doing it this year:

Orlando CEO tells employees layoffs could come if Trump loses
“Daniels [wrote] ...checks worth more than $800,000 in the past two years to GOP interests over a two-year period, including two separate $100,000 contributions to Trump-aligned groups, and another $100,000 to the conservative Club for Growth.”


“This year, because of the reduction of airline travel and civilian aircraft production caused by COVID-19, DMC is more dependent than ever before on receiving military orders. Unfortunately, Democrats historically always cut military funding, thus reducing military orders,” Daniels' letter reads.

I guess Biden being in office and working to actually curtail the harm from the virus and, hence, helping to restore that civilian aviation industry is completely lost on this #MAGAt

In 2012, another Orlando area moron did the same whining if Obama had won. Yet Obama did win as we all know and Siegel’s business boomed


OMG!! Rudy's excuse is almost as bad as the act!! Tucking in his shirt???

Giuliani Says He Was Tucking in Shirt After Removing Microphone in Controversial 'Doctored' Scene for Borat Sequel
Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that a scene in an upcoming film that appears to show him in a compromising position may have been "doctored" or "manipulated."

During his daily show on WABC-AM, Giuliani said images from the clip that began circling online before the film's Friday release on Amazon Prime Video were not as they seemed. He told listeners that he had just concluded an interview at the time the clip was filmed and was in the process of removing the electronic equipment used during the interview, which required him to re-tuck his shirt.

"I had my jacket on—I was fully clothed at all times—and I had to take off the electronic equipment," Giuliani said. "And when the electronic equipment came off, some of it was in the back and my shirt got a little out, came a little out, although my clothes were entirely on. And I leaned back and I tucked my shirt in.

Yeah. I always lay back on a bed to remove recording equipment.

From in my pants!

OMG! Rudy Giuliani was fondling himself in the presence of Sacha Baron Cohen's 'UNDERAGE' actor????

Rudy Giuliani faces questions after compromising scene in new Borat film
Trump’s personal attorney has indiscreet encounter with actor playing Borat’s daughter in hotel room during pandemic
In the film, released on Friday, the former New York mayor and current personal attorney to Donald Trump is seen reaching into his trousers and apparently touching his genitals while reclining on a bed in the presence of the actor playing Borat’s daughter, who is posing as a TV journalist.

Following an obsequious interview for a fake conservative news programme, the pair retreat at her suggestion for a drink to the bedroom of a hotel suite, which is rigged with concealed cameras.

After she removes his microphone, Giuliani, 76, can be seen lying back on the bed, fiddling with his untucked shirt and reaching into his trousers. They are then interrupted by Borat who runs in and says: “She’s 15. She’s too old for you.”


It's all over folks. They did it. They got the goods on Hunter. All they need now is Devin Nunes.

How long until Devin signs on, too?

Devin Nunes was directly involved in the push for Biden Ukraine investigations, says Lev Parnas
Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani, says he helped arrange meetings between Nunes and Ukrainians.
