HAPPENING NOW: Violent Minneapolis Black Lives Matter Mob Loots Sneaker Shop, Target, Walgreens, CVS
“A large mob of Black Lives Matter militants looted a Target late Thursday evening in response to a fatal police shooting in the city. Winston “Boogie” Smith, 32, was reportedly wanted on a state warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm. After being stopped in his vehicle by law enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service says he “produced a handgun.”Read more
“The University of Minnesota is conducting the nation's first randomized trial of a controversial anti-parasite drug that has a fervent U.S. following and is being used on the black market against COVID-19 across the globe.”
Now, will they do a good trial or give it to the wrong patients? There are three primary outcomes. Measure blood oxygen (<93%), did you have to use the emergency room, and PASC assessment questionnaire. Secondary outcome measures seem to be measured very late and do not start until 14-days.
Also, the laboratory outcomes are only for the first 70-patients. So those statistics will be very weak and not tell you much. And further notice that these 70 patients probably have their labs complete and with Ivermectin added so late, we doubt that any ivermectin patients will have any of the labs. We think this study design is extremely poor and maybe that is the way they want it. Prove us wrong U of M.

Chauvin Judge Blasts "Abhorrent" Maxine Waters' Words; Says May "Result In This Whole Trial Being Overturned"
“It's been quite a few days for the millionaire south-central LA congresswoman. First she incites violence and questions the US judicial system, then violence takes place resulting in injuries, then she is denigrated for actions, and turns around and blames white supremacy for what she did and said. But, to be frank, all of that pales into insignificance relative to what could possibly happen next.”
“Even though the judge denied the defense's motion for mistrial, he highlighted the damage her rhetoric may have done, saying "Congresswoman Waters may have given you something on appeal that may result in this whole trial being overturned."”Read more
“A Minneapolis City Council candidate encouraged those who “feel like burning shit down” to target the city’s wealthiest residents instead of causing further damage to poor communities. “Just a personal thought — just in case y’all feel like burning shit down, the poor community is not your oppressors. FYI — lake of the isles has more then [sic] needed and won’t be missed,” Rita Ortega wrote on her personal Facebook page, which is under her full name of Margarita, according to screenshots shared widely on social media Friday.”Read more
“New documents filed in the George Floyd case give new information about the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's findings in Floyd's autopsy. Handwritten notes of a law enforcement interview with Dr. Andrew Baker, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner, say Floyd had 11 ng/mL of fentanyl in his system. "If he were found dead at home alone and no other apparent causes, this could be acceptable to call an OD. Deaths have been certified with levels of 3," Baker told investigators. In another new document, Baker said, "That is a fatal level of fentanyl under normal circumstances."”Read more
