  1. A follow-on to the Minnesota story reported above: Despite mass job losses, California revenues soar by billions as rich get richer during pandemic At the end of 2020, California had lost a record 1.6 million jobs during the pandemic. Nearly a half-million people stopped even trying to look for work. Business properties saw their value plummet more than 30%. But California’s bank account is overflowing. As of January, the state’s tax collections were $10.5 billion ahead of projections. By the end of the fiscal year on July 1, Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state
  2. Litigation Tracker: Pending Criminal and Civil Cases Against Donald Trump On both the criminal and civil litigation fronts, former President Donald Trump faces a bevy of lawsuits and investigations, with more cases likely to follow. Some are civil suits stemming from his pre-presidential business dealings. Others are defamation claims from women he allegedly assaulted. More still are criminal probes and civil actions that scrutinize his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The Chart below tracks all these cases. It will be continually updated as major legal develo
  3. Mosquito swarm makes tornado-like formation in Argentina Motorists in Argentina were faced with a confronting sight as they drove towards what appeared to be a forming tornado recently – but on closer inspection, it was actually something else entirely. Footage filmed by a person driving along Route 74 between General Madariaga and Pinamar revealed the dark tornado-like formation was actually a huge swarm of mosquitoes. “It’s getting bigger and bigger, I’ve never seen anything like this in my life,” the person filming says, according to local media reports.
  4. Anti-Vaxxers Melt Down Over Vaccinated People Giving Blood Coronavirus truthers have a new boogeyman. A far-right Facebook group that spans the U.K. and the U.S. recently erupted in alarm when a user posted, “There are people donating blood after being shot up with the covid crap. This terrifies me.” A wave of comments followed, all reflecting various degrees of deluded, conspiratorial thinking about shots that we know to be safe and effective. “Isn’t there a rule not to??” one intoned. “Are people that stupid to donate blood after getting a shot?”
  5. Meet the spouses whose marriages were destroyed by QAnon A therapist who specializes in cult recovery says he's "never seen anything like this before" Adam and his wife were always pretty conservative. While she was an "ardent" supporter of Donald Trump, as he described, it wasn't until the November 2020 election — and nearly eight months into the coronavirus pandemic — that he started to get increasingly concerned about how deep her support for Trump ran. She was spending hours on her phone watching videos by pro-Trump conservatives like Dan Bongino and Ben Shapiro.
  6. Colorado poll finds large differences among political parties in who wants to get vaccinated As Colorado continues to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine and with nearly 6,000 people dead in the state because of the virus, a newly released poll found just around 1 in 3 Colorado Republicans plan to get vaccinated when doses become available to them. The survey, which was conducted by Louisville-based Magellan Strategies, involved an online survey of 769 registered voters in Colorado polled from Feb. 9-17, with a ±3.53% margin of error. But the question about whethe
  7. DOJ files appeal of Trump-appointed judge's ruling on CDC eviction moratorium The Department of Justice has filed an appeal of a federal judge's decision this week that declared the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention eviction moratorium unconstitutional. Judge John Barker, a Trump appointee in the Eastern District of Texas, stopped short of issuing a preliminary injunction but said he expected the CDC to respect his ruling and withdraw the moratorium. But Saturday night, the Justice Department filed an appeal in the case. Click on the link
  8. Biden administration preparing wider economic package for U.S. infrastructure beyond virus relief Looking beyond the $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill, President Joe Biden and lawmakers are laying the groundwork for another top legislative priority — a long-sought boost to the nation’s roads, bridges and other infrastructure that could run into Republican resistance to a hefty price tag. Biden and his team have begun discussions on the possible outlines of an infrastructure package with members of Congress, particularly mindful that Texas’ recent struggles with power outa
  9. There are approximately 700,000 police officers in the US. If 1/1000 are bad, that's still 700 bad officers. But with the rate we are seeing things reported (and not everything is), that means there are thousands of bad police officers. there are approximately 18,000 police forces in the US. You can't tell me that each one doesn't have a number of bad cops. So really we're talking tens of thousands of bad cops.
