Let’s Talk Liberal
Hmm, looks like someone took her meds today.
Well, may not the whole dose.
In a surprise twist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez liked an article on Twitter Tuesday that supported a woman who has long claimed she was sexually assaulted decades ago by former Vice President Joe Biden.
The article posted to Twitter had two independent witnesses corroborating the accusations made by Tara Reade, a former Biden aide, regarding sexual assault allegations that resurfaced in March against the Democratic 2020 presidential hopeful.
Moreover, Ocasio-Cortez’s liked Tweet from Jessica Valenti, a feminist author and GenMag columnist, read: “Believing women means doing so whether it’s politically convenient or not.”
Reade, a former Senate staffer for Biden, is alleging that the former lawmaker sexually assaulted her in 1993 when she was working in his Washington D.C. office. Her brother, Collin Moulton, also came forward telling Business Insider he remembered his sister saying Biden “had his hand under her clothes at some point.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s Twitter reaction comes after she pledged last week to vote for Biden in November and as so many of her Democratic colleagues, who were part of the outspoken “believe women” crowd during the Brett Kavanaugh supreme court confirmation hearings and the #MeToo Movement, remain silent on Reade’s accusations.
For example, The Daily Caller’s Henry Rodgers recently asked every Senate Democrat to comment on Reade’s claims, giving them 24 hours to respond, but not a single one responded.
This is what it’s all about.
A very vocal critic of President Trump gets a call from Trump because this critic has skills to help America in this time of need. Immediately all differences are thrown out the window.
This speaks to the character of both of these guys…THIS is what makes America.
It’s also important to point out that Trump DOES NOT just surround himself with “yes men” as the liberal press would have you believe.
Billionaire Mark Cuban said that he is fully committed to helping President Trump reopen the U.S. economy that was attacked by the coronavirus.
“Right now I’m supporting the president,” Cuban told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney referring to hinting at running for the presidency. “I’m here to help him on his council. Whatever I can do as an American – I’m all in.”
Trump named Cuban as one of the leaders that he would be meeting by telephone to help resurrect the ailing U.S. economy.
While the Dallas Mavericks owner would not discuss plans for a presidential run, he did float some economic ideas that he believes “conservatives would be very interested” in hearing.
First, Cuban said he isn’t sure whether the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan programs are working and there should be a “friction-free approach to keeping the economy open.”
Qualcomm Inc. shares rose in the extended session Wednesday after the chip maker topped Wall Street estimates, forecast a COVID-19-impaired outlook still was in the ballpark of analysts’ consensus, and said it still expects 5G sales to fall within its projections.
“In the June quarter, we estimate the overall handset market to be down approximately 30% driven by the impact of shutdowns in the rest of the world while benefiting from the rebound we’re seeing in China,” said Qualcomm Chief Executive Steve Mollenkopf during the analyst call. That translates into a hit of 30 cents a share for third-quarter earnings, the company said.
Qualcomm QCOM, +4.88% expects adjusted third-quarter earnings of 60 cents to 80 cents a share on revenue of $4.4 billion to $5.2 billion, while analysts expect 78 cents a share on revenue of $4.89 billion.
“Total demand will depend on the speed of the economic recovery,” Mollenkopf told analysts. “However, we see no change in our calendar year 2020 5G smartphone forecast. As we look to the second half of calendar 2020, while there are a few regions with minor delays in 5G network deployments, overall 5G is progressing as planned and we continue to be well-positioned to drive the rapid adoption of 5G globally.”
How about this?!
Can staying up late make you fat?
A growing body of research has suggested that poor sleep quality is linked to an increased risk of obesity by deregulating appetite, which in turn leads to more calorie consumption.
But a new study published this week in PLOS Biology found that the direction of this reaction might actually be flipped: It’s not the sleep loss that leads to obesity, but rather that excess weight can cause poor sleep, according to researchers from the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine and the University of Nevada, Reno, who discovered their findings in the microscopic worm Caenorhabditis elegans (C. elegans).
“We think that sleep is a function of the body trying to conserve energy in a setting where energetic levels are going down. Our findings suggest that if you were to fast for a day, we would predict you might get sleepy because your energetic stores would be depleted,” said study co-author David Raizen, MD, PhD, an associate professor of Neurology
