Alternate social media? Really?
"tranny demon hackers"? They hack the demons that cause problems in transmissions?
Odd that he recommends hanging for traitors. If they had charged him with treason, that could have been what happened to him.
Welcome back, Parler
The acquittal will serve Democrats well. It will keep their coalition united. Liberals, Conservatives, Liberatians....basically anyone that is anti-fascist will forget other issues to unit against Trump.
I've never registered as a Democrat before, but it would seem that the best way to slow the liberal agenda now would be to pick conservative Democrats in the Primary.
In 1974, when faced with an evil President, Republicans distanced themselves from it, and they regained power within 6 years. In 2020, Republicans not only don't condemn evil, they embrace it. That provides a unique opening for extreme Liberals, because no matter how extreme their agenda, many voters will tolerate it as a better alternative to the party of evil.
The impeachment trial will enrage Trump supporters, and make them continue to control the Republican Party. The longer Trump holds control, the smaller the party will get, and the bolder the Democrats can get.
In 2020, because of Trump, Democrats felt no need to run to the center, and they stayed extreme left. The last time the Democrats ran extreme left was 1972, and it was disastrous. But, Trump changed the dynamics. With Republicans controlled by Trump, moderates and libertarians will tolerate liberal extremism as preferable to Trump, so the Democrats are empowered to do whatever then want. Once Trump fades out of the picture, Republicans can hopefully regroup, and once again mount resistance to the radical left.
I would add that they are doing nearly as many flu tests this year as in other years, however they are all coming back negative, so it's not a case where they are not looking for the flu. Some companies, such as Quidel, even have combo tests where one test will test the same sample for both the flu and Covid, and tell the doctors if the patient has one, the other, or both.
The science deniers are out if full force today, though.
Why is this news? The same thing has happened in every country on earth, starting as soon as March, when Singapore reported that they had virtually no flu cases, followed by Australia during May-Jun, their peak flu season. It has long been expected that the US would see the same thing, and a look at the math shows why.
Flu has a R0 of 1.2, meaning it can spread, but not that fast, while Covid has an R0 of 3-6, making it spread rampantly. If there are 100 reproduction cycles during the year, 1.2^100 is 83 million, about the number of flu cases in the US per year. If you reduce that by 10%, 1.1^100 is 13,781. So, it doesn't take much reduction of the spread of the flu cuts the number of cases from 83 million to 14,000. With Covid, the R0 is so high that once it escaped into the wild, the chances of stopping it was gone.
