Tom Cotton's op-ed calling for troops to be sent to quell riots amid the George Floyd protests. The Daily Beast reported on Friday of an internal staff meeting that addressed what's been described as an "open revolt" where dozens of Times journalists took to social media to publicly condemned the GOP lawmaker's column, insisting it would put the lives of "black @NYTimes staff in danger." Times editorial page editor James Bennet offered an apology after he previously defended the paper's decision to run the "Send in the Troops" piece. "I just want to begin by saying I’m very sorry, I’m sorry for the pain that this particular piece has caused," Bennet said. "I do think this is a moment for me and for us to interrogate everything we do in opinion." [But see, even this act of ludicrous prostration wasn't enough for the mob. The next day - June 7 - Bennet resigned. That's why you should never kowtow to the mob. There's no amount of supplication to satisfy these terrorists, sociopaths, and whack-jobs. --LRP]

OMG. The NYT published an editorial in February 2020 by Sirajuddin Haqqani, the deputy leader of the Taliban - but publishing an opinion piece by a US Senator is apparently a no-go: New York Times editorial page editor resigns amid staff fury over Senator Tom Cotton's op-ed | 07 June 2020 | The New York Times announced Sunday that Editorial Page Editor James Bennet is resigning -- amid reports of anger inside the company over the publication of an op-ed from Sen.

Cotton, R-Ark., called for the government to deploy troops to help quell riots and looting that emerged amid the anger over Floyd's death in Minneapolis police custody last month. For his part, Cotton has criticized the Times for distancing itself from the op-ed. [Yes, but these days, even apologies aren't enough to satisfy the mob. You must kneel!]

Unindicted 9/11 co-conspirator, Iraq war criminal and Katrina bungler George W. Bush, and Mitt Romney, likely to support Biden

Coterie of deep-state dirt-bags who've destroyed the US middle class unite to defeat Trump: Unindicted 9/11 co-conspirator, Iraq war criminal and Katrina bungler George W. Bush, and Mitt Romney, likely to support Biden --Former President [sic - never elected] George W. Bush and Senator Mitt Romney won't support Mr. Trump's re-election. Colin Powell will vote for Joe Biden, and other G.O.P. officials may do the same. | 07 June 2020 | Former President [sic] George W. Bush won't support the re-election of Mr. Trump, and Jeb Bush isn't sure how he'll vote, say people familiar with their thinking. Senator Mitt Romney of Utah won't back Mr. Trump and is deliberating whether to again write in his wife, Ann, or cast another ballot this November. Cindy McCain, the widow of Senator John McCain, is almost certain to support Mr. Biden but is unsure how public to be about it because one of her sons is eying a run for office. [LOL! Cindy McCain is so pathetic, she can't take a stand - much like her traitorous husband, John.] ...Former Republican leaders like the former Speakers Paul D. Ryan [on the board of Fox Corp. since April 2019, destroying Fox News just as he tried to destroy the middle class with his policy of ensuring corporations get an endless supply of cheap, undocumented labor. Why, oh why, didn't Trump get rid of him?] and John A. Boehner [who worked tirelessly to try to convince CIA robot (and fraud) Barack Obama to slash Social Security] won't say how they will vote, and some Republicans who are already disinclined to support Mr. Trump are weighing whether to go beyond backing a third-party contender to openly endorse Mr. Biden.

Governments and WHO changed Covid-19 policy based on suspect data from tiny US company, Surgisphere

Governments and WHO changed Covid-19 policy based on suspect data from tiny US company, Surgisphere --Surgisphere, whose employees appear to include a sci-fi writer and adult content model, provided database behind Lancet and New England Journal of Medicine hydroxychloroquine studies | 03 June 2020 | The World Health Organization and a number of national governments have changed their Covid-19 policies and treatments on the basis of flawed data from a little-known US healthcare analytics company, also calling into question the integrity of key studies published in some of the world's most prestigious medical journals. A Guardian investigation can reveal the US-based company Surgisphere, whose handful of employees appear to include a science fiction writer and an adult-content model, has provided data for multiple studies on Covid-19 co-authored by its chief executive, but has so far failed to adequately explain its data or methodology. Data it claims to have legitimately obtained from more than a thousand hospitals worldwide formed the basis of scientific articles that have led to changes in Covid-19 treatment policies in Latin American countries. It was also behind a decision by the WHO and research institutes around the world to halt trials of the controversial drug hydroxychloroquine.

Authors retract influential study linking hydroxychloroquine to mortality risk for coronavirus patients

Authors retract influential study linking hydroxychloroquine to mortality risk for coronavirus patients | 04 June 2020 | Three authors have retracted an influential study on the risks of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the COVID-19 virus. The article, published in the journal Lancet, had found that hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria drug, increased mortality and heart problems in patients suffering from the coronavirus. It had been cited in criticizing President Trump's promotion of the drug as a remedy for the disease. But questions arose about how one of the authors, Dr. Sapan Desai, and the company he owns, Surgisphere, were able to compile a massive dataset with very few employees and in a short amount of time. The authors said they are retracting the article, as they "can no longer vouch for the veracity of the primary data sources" because Surgisphere would not provide the dataset for an independent review.

DOJ urges Appeals Court to force dismissal of Flynn case

DOJ urges Appeals Court to force dismissal of Flynn case --A lower-court judge has held up the dismissal, citing DOJ's 'unusual' reversal | 01 June 2020 | The Justice Department on Monday urged a federal Appeals Court to force a lower-court judge to dismiss the prosecution of President Donald Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan had declined to immediately toss the case against Flynn, despite the Justice Department's move to drop [the charge]. Flynn pleaded guilty to the offense in 2017 but reversed course and moved to withdraw his plea in recent months. Sullivan instead sought outside input about whether he should abandon the case -- and potentially charge Flynn with contempt of court for perjury during his guilty plea proceedings. On Monday, DOJ said Sullivan was wrong to take that step. "Instead of inviting further proceedings, the court should have granted the government’s motion to dismiss,” top DOJ officials, including at least two career prosecutors, wrote in a 45-page filing to a three-judge Appeals Court panel.
