He's not taking Hydroxychloroquine. He's a damn liar looking to profit from that drug.

This is when #BlueMAGA rigged the nomination process to endorse Biden. Something that the GOP didn't even do in 2016 against Trump.

Biden is being used for a path to a contested convention. If he's not the outright nominee for the general; as everything about him is manufactured. When he loses in the general to Trump. They'll use Bernie supporters as the fall bros we who will vilified for pointing out his weaknesses in policies and pointing out mental decline to ensure millions are disenfranchised. It'll be a win win for the establishment again without any self reflection like 2016.

2-4% mortality rate? Is that for a specific demographic: elderly, children and medical conditions?

I DON'T comment on "NOTTIN!" My wife and i, both vets, can't express how important you are to us. Climate breakdown should be top story. I personally feel Over Population of "Dumbering Down"/ Geeding Up" humans has already occurred and worsening. MY graph with C02 makes an X. Not lol...😒

I was fortunate enough to see Omar Barghouti, co-founder of BDS, speak to a Jewish population on Passover in Chicago. It was a conversation between him and the Rabbi of a Jewish synagogue. The conversation was informative and well received by the Jewish audience. Had I not been able to go and listen to this conversation, as a Jew, I would not be nearly as staunchly anti-Israeli settlements as I am now. I was lucky to see Omar Barghouti as he had to talk to the audience via Skype. Why? Despite having a valid visa, Omar was denied entry into the United States. He consequently missed being at his daughters wedding, who lives in the USA, in addition to other speaking arrangements. It's becoming more and more clear that maintaining propaganda is the initiative of main stream media and our government rather than true freedom of speech. Talk to your friends & family about what is really going on. Spark outrage. Don't be apathetic and don't normalize apartheid. Be informed and make your voice louder than the propaganda.

I don't know if you have heard about the Poor People's Campaign but if you haven't talked to them yet they are a grassroots program demanding that the US change the moral narrative. Rev Dr Barber originally worked with Martin Luther King Jr and the PPC was a program that was going to be launched later in the year that he was assassinated
