Some Ads

Make no mistake, Priorities USA is the Joe Biden Super Pac. Here’s the one that’s causing the Prior Restraint controversy. That was released 4 days ago along with these 3 others- And this a mere 4 hours ago- I don’t post them because we’re paid. We don’t do Ads nor do we solicit Donations.

Well, these ships are great but the USNS Comfort (1000 beds) won’t get to New York City for at least a couple of weeks and it’s optimized for Trauma, not Infectious Diseases so like the USNS Mercy (deployed to Los Angeles last I checked) it’s going to be a parking space for everything except Coronavirus. …

Remdesivir is NOT an Orphan Drug

For one thing, it’s a widely used and generally accepted treatment for Ebola (remember that?) as well as Junin, Lassa Fever, MERS, and SARS.

The Fundamentals haven’t changed a bit (well, except to get worse from both an Epidemiological and Economic standpoint) and Unindicted Co-conspirator Bottomless Pinocchio may have queered the incipient deal on Stimulus (which …
