Donald Trump Speech Transcript at Mount Rushmore 4th of July Event

One of their political weapons is cancel culture, driving people from their jobs, shaming dissenters, and demanding total submission from anyone who disagrees. This is the very definition of totalitarianism, and it is completely alien to our culture and to our values and it has absolutely no place in the United States of America.

This attack on our liberty, our magnificent liberty must be stopped and it will be stopped very quickly. We will expose this dangerous movement, protect our nation’s children from this radical assault, and preserve our beloved American way of life. In our schools, our newsrooms, even our corporate boardrooms, there is a new far-left fascism that demands absolute allegiance. If you do not speak its language, perform its rituals, recite its mantras, and follow its commandments, then you will be censored, banished, blacklisted, persecuted, and punished. It’s not going to happen to us.

Why Gilead Sciences Shares Rose 18.4% in the First Half

Early into the health crisis, Gilead began testing remdesivir as a possible treatment for the illness caused by the novel coronavirus. The antiviral initially had been studied in other coronaviruses — severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS). More recently, remdesivir entered clinical trials for COVID-19, and as promising data emerged, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration granted the drug Emergency Use Authorization.

SARS-CoV-2 detected in waste waters in Barcelona on March 12, 2019

(26.06.2020)

According to the researchers, these results show the validity of the surveillance of waste waters to anticipate cases, specially considering the significant contribution of the asymptomatic and pre-symptomatic carriers in the spreading of the virus. “Those infected with COVID-19 could have been diagnosed with flu in primary care by mistake, contributing to the community transmission before the public health took measures”, notes Albert Bosch, also president of the Spanish Society of Virology.

“In the specific case of Barcelona –the virologist continues–, having detected the SARS-CoV-2 spread a month before could have improved the response to the pandemic”.

Analysis of frozen samples from 2018 and 2019

These results encouraged the researchers to analyse some frozen samples between January 2018 and December 2019, with the shocking results of the presence of SARS-CoV-2 genome in March 2019, before any notification of COVID-19 cases in the world. “All samples were negatives regarding the SARS-CoV-2 genome presence except for March 12, 2019, in which the levels of SARS-CoV-2 were low but were positive, using two different targets”, says the researcher.

Brinkmann: Zum Herbst hin wird entscheidend sein, dass wir unsere Kontakte weiterhin reduzieren, nachvollziehen können und zum Beispiel auch Abstand halten und Masken tragen. Und politisch wird wichtig sein, nicht an allen Enden zu lockern.

Nore Ghibaudy with the Jefferson County Clerk’s Office said that they’re still finalizing how to lay out the landmark and the National Guard will be asked to help.

COVID-19 and the Constitution: How the Bill of Rights Is Being Tested by the Coronavirus

(20.06.2020)

An analysis of the coronavirus’s impact on constitutional law could fill the pages of a book. This article surveys just some of the ways in which government responses to the virus pose thorny issues under the First, Second, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, and Tenth Amendments. Many of these issues are already being litigated; others loom on the horizon. By the time the coronavirus is placed under control, which could be months or even years from now, its effect on constitutional jurisprudence—like its effect on nearly all facets of society—will likely be profound.
