Nancy Pelosi’s ridiculously over-the-top response to questions about the coronavirus stimulus

Asked if she had spoken to President Donald Trump about the possibility of a coronavirus stimulus deal, Pelosi said she doesn’t „speak to the President.“ Pressed on why not — given the suffering of people in desperate need of a stimulus deal to keep their business open or pay their bills — Pelosi responded this way: „What makes me amused if it weren’t so sad, is how you all think that you know more about the suffering of the American people than those of us who are elected by them to represent them at that table.“
Uh, OK.

04.10.2020 - 16:21 [ DailyMail.co.uk ]

Boris Johnson blames ‚failure in counting system‘ for daily Covid infections DOUBLING to a record 12,872 – but dodges giving fuller explanation as he hints there WERE delays tracing contacts of thousands who tested positive

But appearing on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show this morning, Mr Johnson suggested that the issue might have gone deeper and affected crucial efforts to track down contacts of those who tested positive.

‚The reason for that is there was a failure in the testing system… It was a computing issue,‘ he said.

תקיפת המפגינים הערב ובימים האחרונים בלתי מתקבלת על הדעת. ההפגנות המתקיימות לפי ההנחיות הן דבר לגיטימי וחיוני בדמוקרטיה. אני קורא למשטרה לשים את ידה על התוקפים ולמצות עימם את הדין.

In Earth’s early history, a day was 23.5 hours and a year lasted 372 days

(13.03.2020)

We’ve long known that an Earth day lasts 24 hours, and that remains constant because Earth’s trip around the sun doesn’t vary.

However, the number of days that make an Earth year have shifted and shortened because days have grown longer. That is thanks to the moon’s gravity, which draws on ocean’s tides and slows Earth’s rate of rotation.

Brexit: Blair and Major urge MPs to reject Internal Market Bill

The former leaders, both vehement opponents of Brexit, said that respecting treaty obligations was „just as important“ as domestic law, and called for MPs to reject the legislation.

„As the world looks on aghast at the UK – the word of which was once accepted as inviolable – this government’s action is shaming itself and embarrassing our nation,“ they added.

Bush endorsing Biden? Don’t hold your breath

Behind the scenes, some Biden allies have been reaching out through backchannels to friends in the Bush universe to see if an endorsement would ever happen — or if it’s just a pipe dream.

“We tried a little unofficially to see if there was a way to make it happen but we couldn’t get there,” said one Biden ally. “And I do think it would make a difference because we’ve learned every vote counts.”

3 VERY IMPORTANT THINGS about this photo of Joe Biden calling Kamala to offer her VP spot: 1. Biden has to read from a script that is clearly visible 2. Biden does not know how to hold an iPhone (it’s upside down) 3. The cartoon on Biden’s desk is a man screaming “WHY ME?!”

(22.06.2020)
