Interview must have went badly for him, he is already attacking the interviewer on Twitter.
It makes sense he’s hitting out on her on Twitter. I mean, per the article:
Stahl previously said that during an off-camera conversation with Trump in 2016, when he was running for President, he admitted his attacks on the press were meant to discredit negative stories that emerged about him.
”He said, 'You know why I do it? I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me, no one will believe you.' He said that," Stahl said

Originally posted by Lanny Yeah pretty much. Ive has this conversation like a dozen times now. I’m not the morality police of NiS. I don’t personally approve of the moral content of like most of the posts on this site, but if hosting it doesn’t constitute a criminal offense then I’m not going to try to play the arbiter of common decency and ban people on the grounds that I found something they posted to be distasteful.
Why do you delete finny posts?

2020-10-08 at 10:27 PM UTC in American Terrorist Plot Foiled by FBISix men were arrested and accused of plotting with a militia group to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, the authorities said.
The men had been discussing taking Gov. Whitmer, a Democrat, hostage since at least the summer, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court and unsealed on Thursday.
Several of the men had discussed creating a society in which they could be "self-sufficient" and one said he needed 200 men to storm the Statehouse in Lansing, Mich."

Originally posted by aldra I'm sure we've talked about it before, I know I've posted links and data
Basically hospitals will typically mark any death while a patient has tested positive for COVID as being caused by COVID. This is partially due to the lack of resources to perform an autopsy/verify cause of death for every casualty and partially because hospitals get paid out more (insurance) for COVID kills. This has lead to instances where people who died in car accidents, falls or violence being marked as COVID deaths because they had the virus concurrently.
In terms of testing, the initial CDC test kits had a 50% accuracy rate and it's not clear how much they've been improved since then. Current test kits carry the warning that they may register a positive for any coronavirus such as the common cold, rather than the specific COVID19 virus. Further it's recently been reported that the PCR tests used to detect the presence of the virus in the test kits has been such a high sensitivity (standard tests are run at sensitivity level 30, COVID tests are run at 40 with graduating steps) that they've been demonstrated to pick up inert and deactivated viruses and even stray genetic material that may or may not have even come from a coronavirus intially. Over 90% of tests are run at this absurdly high sensitivity, meaning that up to 90% of tests may have registered a false positive.
We have never talked about it before. Still waiting on those links and data. You didn't back up anything you said in this post. Then MMR responded with this:
Originally posted by MexicanMasterRace Flagrantly untrue. They don't get paid more for COVID deaths. Where the fuck did you hear that? Trump? Actually READ the CARES act and you'll see the only money hospitals got from the federal government was a 20% medicaid supplement. This is, the feds covering an additional 20% for all medicaid bills for all patients who test positive for COVID.
Here's the money for that. Both for the CARES act and the 2nd wave of 10 billion.
Where's the money you're talking about? Where's the legislation that says hospitals get money 'for each death'?
This is complete bullshit lol. "CDC test kits" are not any different from the tests the rest of the world is using. If America's testing numbers are off, so is everyone else's. Clearly though, you have no idea what you're talking about. What you're thinking about are the very early molecular tests. We now have far more sophisticated antigen/antibody tests which are significantly more accurate.
I don't even know what to say about the rest of your post. It's just wild ass speculation and you come to a wild ass conclusion that '90% of the tests may be false positives' based on fucking what? Your own guesswork? Because you THINK it might be? You FEEL they aren't accurate?
I mean holy shit. The level of mental gymnastics you are going through to get to the conclusions you are getting is just insane. You have no evidence of any kind for anything you're saying. Where are your scientific studies showing the tests are 'wildly accurate'? Like you realize this is just a problem in modern medicine right? People get false positives for cancer. For other coronaviruses. For genetic diseases. Donut frosting gets mistaken for methamphetamines in reagent tests. I mean it's just a problem overall. Why is anybody pretending like the coronavirus tests are any different?
Even if 50% of the tests are false positives (which would be unrealistically inaccurate) the official CDC report (as in, the actual counted COVID deaths) is at like 210,000 dead in America, with it being more like 300,000 if you count the 'unexplained' spike in pnuemonia and heart attack. But let's assume the "real" number is 100k. That is still 10% of the COVID deaths for a country with 4% of the world's population.
And you left the thread.
How do you expect me to walk your path when you won't even show me where to start?

2020-10-11 at 1:58 PM UTC in Scientists Predict There's 90% Chance Civilization Will Collapse Within 'Decades'Portland protesters report severe and lasting side effects from the chemical weapons used during Trump’s “Operation Diligent Valor.”
We have seen ongoing conflict in the USA. I remember when it started, watching on TV my colleagues could not believe the indiscriminate violence being inflicted upon citizens and press.
This article is interesting because it discusses the health and ecological impacts of using chemical weapons domestically.
Not great for people, probably worse than stated:
Mayor Ted Wheeler acknowledged that the city has used “CS” tear gas. The commonly used formulation contains 2-chlorobenzalmalononitrile, a compound that was designed to induce immediate pain but can also have long-term effects, including chronic bronchitis. In early September, Wheeler ordered the police to stop using it. Tear gas is banned in war but can be used to disperse crowds of civilians.
health effects of hexachloroethane include nausea, vomiting, central nervous system depression, and kidney and liver damage, according to the compound’s material safety data sheet. … The toxic compound also causes fever, chest pain, and liver damage and is associated with anorexia, fatigue, and weight loss.
Really bad for foliage and aquatic life:
HC smoke bomb, which was developed in the 1930s to disperse people and conceal actions on the battlefield, is particularly dangerous to health and the environment. The Military-Style Maximum Smoke HC grenade from Defense Technology is “very toxic to aquatic life with long-lasting effects” and is “suspected of causing cancer,” according to the grenade’s safety data sheet. Environmental effects of the smoke bombs include defoliation of trees and a long-term reduction in their growth.
What’s really alarming to me is the use of chemical weapons on citizens. It not only represents an unmasking of the brutality in the USA (in terms of showing it to the world), but also marks dangerous escalation and willingness to strip citizens of constitutional rights (e.g. freedom of speech). There are so many manifestations, but the police brutality, to me, is one of the most shocking.
I keep hearing the argument that police are using crowd dispersal tools incorrectly (e.g. firing rubber bullets and tear gas directly at people, rather than bouncing them and so on). While this is true to the best of my knowledge, these chemical weapons (tear gas) should not be used at all. It’s not just that they’re used improperly or expired, but that they cause long term health complications and injury that goes far beyond the purpose of crowd dispersal.
A 1994 report of the U.S. Army Biomedical Research and Development Laboratory notes, “Exposure of unprotected soldiers to high concentrations of HC smoke for even a few minutes has resulted in injuries and fatalities.”
Moreover, I find it terribly interesting to read about the health implications of these weapons. These are banned from use in war zones, but it’s a-ok to spray American citizens with this shit. We’re going to be having “gulf war syndrome” for protestors. Even worse, most of these people won’t have meaningful access to health care.
