Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), calling on them to dispute the Pennsylvania election results until an investigation is conducted into numerous claims of fraud.

Russia is developing world's first Covid-19 antidote, preclinical studies show drug effectiveness of more than 99% | 30 Dec 2020 | Russia's Federal Medical and Biological Agency (FMBA) has announced the development of a drug to fight against Covid-19, which would become the world's first direct-acting antiviral antidote if clinical trials are successful.

In fact, this is an antidote for coronavirus infection," she informed Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin on Wednesday, noting that preclinical studies have been completed, which have shown the remedy to be "completely safe" and "highly efficient." Etiotropic means that the treatment is directed against the cause of a disease... The FMBA is also working on a separate drug for the treatment of the most complex coronavirus cases, which suppresses and prevents a physiological reaction called 'hypercytokinemia'. Also known as a 'cytokine storm', it is an immune response that leads to body tissue damage, and is thought by some to be causing Covid-19 deaths.

'I Want to Beat Them to Death'; Left-Wing Journalist Threatens Anti-Maskers and Christians During Unhinged Rant | 02 Jan 2021 | If you don't believe masks work as much as the media tells you, left-wing journalist [sic] and NY Times best-selling author Kurt Eichenwald wants to literally "beat you to death". Yes, that's what he tweeted. In a New Year's Eve twitter meltdown, Eichenwald blamed "anti-maskers" for the death of his brother in law, even though he provided no proof that a maskless person infected him. "I have so much hate in my heart tonight. My sister, widowed by COVID, has Covid because of antimaskers," he wrote on Thursday. "About 4,000 died today; GOP says nothing. [Republican Sen. Josh Hawley] & his ilk are working to harm America. I wish them & their loved ones all the pain & misery they inflicted on this country." Eichenwald argued that, since anti-maskers believe they have the "right to kill", he feels it's okay to kill them by beating them to a pulp... In the same breath that he expressed interest in "beating people to death", he somehow claimed to know what Jesus Christ would think of anti-maskers. He also said Christians will "burn in h-ll.
UK judge refuses US extradition of WikiLeaks founder Assange | 04 Jan 2021 | A British judge on Monday rejected the United States’ request to extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to face espionage charges, saying he was likely to kill himself if held under harsh U.S. prison conditions. In a mixed ruling for Assange and his supporters, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser rejected defense arguments that the 49-year-old Australian faces a politically motivated American prosecution that rides roughshod over free-speech protections. But she said Assange's precarious mental health would likely deteriorate further under the conditions of "near total isolation" he would face in a U.S. prison. "I find that the mental condition of Mr. Assange is such that it would be oppressive to extradite him to the United States of America," the judge said.

Nashville's Big Bomb Was a Very Rare Device, Experts Think --Fire, flash, and power signal a volatile fuel-air mix that even terrorists avoid. | 01 Jan 2021 | Find his test sites, top bomb experts say. Anthony Quinn Warner's [alleged] device, although probably made of common over-the-counter components, is unique in the annals of mayhem, according to seasoned FBI bomb experts consulted by SpyTalk. "We've never seen an improvised thermobaric device before in this country or any country," says Dave Williams, who conducted the FBI's on-scene investigations of the World Trade Center, Oklahoma City, Pan Am 103 and Unabomber bombings, among other notorious incidents. Thermobaric refers to a gaseous fuel-air explosion. "The reason is, it's very difficult to get the timing down to get an optimum mixture of air and a liquified carbonaceous fuel such as propane, methane, acetylene or natural gas," Williams told SpyTalk. "He couldn't have done it the first time and made it work. There had to be a test area." ...Williams's hypothesis, that Warner's RV bomb was likely thermobaric, also known as a fuel-air explosive, aerosol bomb or vacuum bomb, is based on videos of the yellow-orange fireball, the pattern of destruction and conversations with other experts in the tight network of bomb investigators aware of the ongoing investigation in Nashville.
