Thought for the day

"There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away. The British people can face peril or misfortune with fortitude and buoyancy, but they bitterly resent being deceived or finding that those responsible for their affairs are themselves dwelling in a fool's paradise." -- Winston Churchill

Abstract

Despite the obvious knowledge that infectious particles can be shared through respiration, whether other constituents of the nasal/oral fluids can be passed between hosts has surprisingly never even been postulated, let alone investigated. The circumstances of the present pandemic facilitated a unique opportunity to fully examine this provocative idea. The data we show provides evidence for a new mechanism by which herd immunity may be manifested, the aerosol transfer of antibodies between immune and non-immune hosts.

Katie Hobbs, Arizona's secretary of state and governor-elect, sued Cochise County officials Monday over not certifying the results of her gubernatorial election, two weeks after she was projected to win the race. 

Cochise County officials reportedly voted against certifying the results of the gubernatorial election by the state's statutory deadline, prompting Hobbs to file the lawsuit.

The 53-page lawsuit urged Cochise County officials to confirm the results of the election, claiming that by law, the canvass would proceed with or without counting the county's votes if they did not meet the deadline.

Massive cuts are coming to the house that Turner built.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. Discovery has started to make massive layoffs at CNN; CEO Christ Licht says “It will be a difficult time for everyone,” in a memo to the company.

Read Licht’s Memo Below:

To my CNN colleagues,

Our people are the heart and soul of this organization. It is incredibly hard to say goodbye to any one member of the CNN team, much less many. I recently described this process as a gut punch, because I know that is how it feels for all of us.

Today we will notify a limited number of individuals, largely some of our paid contributors, as part of a recalibrated reporting strategy. Tomorrow, we will notify impacted employees, and tomorrow afternoon I will follow up with more details on these changes.

One of the most troubling things about the Biden regime has been the unequal application of the law we have seen. What has always made the U.S. special in the history of the world was not only its freedom but its rule of law. That’s why people came to us from troubled places all over the world, fleeing banana republics. Yet the Biden team seems to be intent on turning us into the banana republics that people have fled from.

We’ve seen the stark difference in the way that the Jan. 6 defendants have been treated versus the BLM or other leftist rioters. We’ve seen all kinds of tactics brought to bear when it comes to anything related to Jan. 6, whereas in a similar riot against the inauguration of President Donald Trump in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 20, 2017; most of those arrested had their charges dismissed.

One of the tactics raising concerns is the “geofence warrant” that I’ve previously written about.

There’s more from defense attorney Tara Fish, who takes it apart in her motion to suppress on behalf of defendant David Rhine. Fish argues first that the search was massively overbroad, first going through “millions of private accounts” to determine if any fit within the data of being in or near the Capitol. “The warrant was therefore unconstitutionally overbroad, a modern-day general warrant.” That’s a big problem because warrants have to be narrow and specific.

New York County Democratic District Attorney Alvin Bragg is in hot water following recent reports that he downgraded 52% of felony cases to misdemeanors in 2022 while New Yorkers continue to face surging crime rates, Fox News Digital reported.

According to data from the DA office website, 39% of felony charges were downgraded to misdemeanors in 2019. From 2013 to 2020, under District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., the percentage of downgraded cases never exceeded 40%.

Since taking office in January, Bragg's office has won only 51% of prosecuted felony charges, compared to Vance's 68% in 2019.

Bragg has declined to prosecute 35% more felony cases this year compared to 2019.

Volkswagen’s CEO wrote that electric vehicle battery plants in the European Union are “practically unviable” at this moment due to soaring energy costs.

Further investment in key industrial projects such as battery cell plants in Germany and the EU are becoming more unfeasible due to policymakers inability to control skyrocketing long-term energy prices, according to the Chief Executive Officer for Volkswagen AG’s name brand, Thomas Schaefer.

Europe, and especially Germany, has been devastated by the loss of Russian energy exports to the bloc since the war in Ukraine and the Western sanctions on Moscow.

The EU, the UK, and the United States have all been facing a serious energy crisis for most of 2022.

Europe’s largest economy and the most dependent on Russian gas imports, Germany has seen its industrial output tumble due to high energy prices due to shortages.

Schafer warned that “the USA, Canada, China, Southeast Asia, and regions like North Africa are forging ahead.”

Rebuilding Ukraine will cost more than $1 trillion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said during a video address to the General Assembly of the International Bureau of Expositions on Tuesday.

According to Zelensky, Ukraine is developing a system that will allow partner countries to become “patrons” of Ukrainian regions, cities, or businesses. “We’re already seeing interest [in the program] from France, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Portugal, Czechia, Slovenia, Latvia, Estonia, Switzerland, Slovakia, Austria, Greece, Canada, the U.S., Japan, and Australia. And that’s not an exhaustive list,” he said.

Are some of the cryptocurrency industry’s most important pioneers being targeted by someone?  We just learned that a 53-year-old cryptocurrency billionaire named Vyacheslav Taran has died, and he is the third big name to suddenly meet his maker in recent weeks.  So is this just one giant coincidence, or is there some common denominator that links all three of them?  There is so much that we don’t know right now, but it is interesting to note that all three of these deaths have happened at a time when the cryptocurrency community is going through an unprecedented amount of turmoil.  The collapse of FTX is threatening the legitimacy of the entire industry, and many that were once crypto millionaires on paper have had their fortunes completely wiped out.

Vyacheslav Taran died when the helicopter that he was riding in suddenly slammed into a hillside.  He was the co-founder of a trading platform known as Libertex, and his involvement in the cryptocurrency industry had made him a very wealthy man.

Unfortunately for Taran, he won’t be able to spend any more of that wealth because his life is now over

A Russian billionaire has become the third top cryptocurrency trader to die suddenly in recent weeks.

Vyacheslav Taran, 53, the co-founder of trading and investing platform Libertex, died after his helicopter mysteriously crashed in a resort town near Monaco.

The vehicle plummeted on November 25 afternoon, killing Mr Taran, who had lived in Monaco for a decade, as well as a veteran pilot.

Following days of ongoing protests in China, the "White Paper Revolution" has spread outside of the country, with protestors across the globe, many of Chinese descent, standing in solidarity with those in China protesting their country’s "Zero Covid" policy.

In the US, college students at University of California Berkeley, NYU, and Columbia University gathered on their campuses, carrying white sheets of paper as those in China have been doing. The blank, white pages are a symbol of protest against Chinese censors.

A county in Pennsylvania that didn’t have enough paper ballots on Election Day failed to certify the results of the Nov. 8 midterms by the Nov. 28 deadline.

The Luzerne County Board of Elections split 2–2 to certify the results, while one member abstained from voting. It’s unclear what the next steps are.

Republican board members Alyssa Fusaro and Jim Mangan voted no, while Democrat members Denise Williams and Audrey Serniak voted for the certification, according to the Times Leader. Daniel Schramm, also a Democrat, was the lone board member who abstained.

Fusaro and Mangan said the ballot shortage on Nov. 8 that caused voters to be turned away was the reason they wouldn’t certify the results, according to local media reports. Fusaro said on Nov. 28 that voters were turned away from the polls, privacy safeguards weren’t in place, and machines jammed and ran out of paper.

There were so many challenges, so many issues, so many problems, so many concerns, that I can’t with good conscience certify this election,” Fusaro said, stating that a new election should be held.

Schramm said at the hearing that he’s “not a rubber stamper” and wants more time to review a reconciliation report. He also wants to look into claims made by voters on Election Day, the Times Leader reported.
