    It’s conceivable that, if Edward Snowden has information relevant to the national security of the United States, it might make sense to negotiate a plea bargain.

    Personally, I’m hoping to hear he’s been found in a ditch with his body at ambient temperature.

    I think it would be interesting if Snowden decided to “transition” like “Chelsea” Manning, Trump issues a pardon to the new name, he/she/it comes back to the US, and then the original name gets arrested and put behind bars for life.

    Okay, I just heard the ultimate bad commercial placement. Shaun King was hawking his book.

    I just did a search on Bing, for Fauci’s statement about in-person voting.

    There’s very little coverage in the liberal media.

    I got the same result a few months ago, when Fauci said, if he were a clinician and a COVID-19 patient asked for hydroxychloroquine, he would prescribe it.

    But would he prescribe it FOR COVID, knowing that he might lose his license for doing so? Or would he say it’s for something else?

    I don’t think the radio host took his hypothetical scenario to that level of detail.

    My guess would be, Fauci would obey the law.

    I think Fauci’s point was, not that hydroxychloroquine is necessarily medically effective against COVID-19, but that the drug’s side effects are so well-understood, there is little downside risk to trying it.

    If nothing else, it’s likely to have a placebo effect on a patient who believes in it!

    It does seem to be effective for a lot of people, if taken with zinc, and if taken before the situation becomes too serious. Which makes it seem rather odd that the “testing” I’ve heard about always seems to be WITHOUT zinc, and on patients for whom it might be their “last chance.” It’s difficult to view that as anything but deliberate attempts to fail.
