A 59-year-old Zimmerman woman told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS she had an extreme medical emergency May 29 but was delayed getting specialized treatment during Twin Cities riots and is now paralyzed from the waist down. Retired Minnesota National Guard Master Sgt. Launette Figliucci said she had a spinal stroke and needed to be airlifted to a metro hospital that specializes in emergency stroke care, but airspace over the metropolitan area was restricted at the time and major highways were closed as well due to the rioting.

Should be national news, but it ain’t. But how about this: sue the guvnor, mayor, city council, and their dogs. Then file some kind of lawsuit against Soros and get a bit of his money. Money will not erase the pain and certainly will not restore her legs. But it will help.

Toss a rock into a pool of water and it has ripples. Whatever you and I do has a similar effect. We may me "individuals" with rights, but we are also members of a race - the human race. If we do good, it has effect. If we do wrong (even behind closed doors) it has an effect.

#7, my father-in-law had a brainstem stroke...also rare. But the devastating effects are life-long lasting. This woman was denied treatment and should sue the pants off her local and state governments--FOX NEWS, pick this one up! She should be national news. It's up to us to make it go front and center. A TV ad from the GOP, "this could happen to you (or a loved one)" if you don't defend and clean up American cities. TRUMP/PENCE 2020!

Our paramedics now give the option of having clot-busting medication administered when they arrive at wherever the stroke victim is located. They must have the patient’s approval or that of the person having their medical power of attorney, and the approval of their physician (by phone). Her clot would not have been in her spinal cord, but in a blood vessel supplying blood to the spinal cord. The problem with immediate administration of clot-busting meds is that there is a small but real chance that the stroke is hemorrhagic rather than ischemic (clot).

This is a prime example of why the BLM/Antifa/democrat governors/mayors are so full of it their eyes are blackened. This is on all those blue city mayors and their governors for allowing these riots to get so far. I am sorry this happened to her, and it is time to hold the mayors and governors personally responsible. This is on them for enabling and supporting rioters and destruction.

Wow! I would say sue the Governor and the State for not providing a safe way for travel, both on the Road and in the sky. Especially in case of emergency. That falls on Gov. Walz. This could happen anywhere that BLM and Antifa is allowed to block Roads, Hospital entrances and most other streets that stop free travel for people in that state who expect their police and people in charge to keep them safe. I think this woman is going to be a Multi-Millionaire before this one is settled!!

The owners of the Castello di Amorosa winery spent $40 million re-creating a 13th century Tuscan castle in Napa Valley, replete with stone turrets and towers, and a small drawbridge. When the Glass fire hit Amorosa and other Napa wineries Sunday and Monday, it did little damage to the front of the castle. But it badly scorched the back building and heated up a stone wall on a processing facility where thousands of wine bottles were stored, many now ruined.   Climate change, which has been linked to much of California’s current apocalyptic wildfire season...

Two decades ago, Florida's hanging chads became an unlikely symbol of a disputed presidential election. This year, the issue could be poorly marked ovals or boxes. Amid the global coronavirus pandemic, more people than ever are expected to bypass their polling place and cast absentee ballots for the first time. Voters marking ballots from home could lead to an increase in the kinds of mistakes that typically would be caught by a scanner or election worker at the polls. Experts say...

A door-to-door COVID-19 testing survey has been halted due to multiple incidents in outstate Minnesota of residents intimidating and shouting racial and ethnic slurs at state and federal public health survey teams. (snip) Frustration with the state’s pandemic response “is totally understandable,” said Dr. Ruth Lynfield, state epidemiologist, “but that is distinctly different than taking out frustration on another human being who is trying to help and is especially galling when there is a taint of racism. There is no justification for this — the enemy is the virus and not the public health workers who are trying to help.”

President Donald Trump is facing a backlash for urging voters in North Carolina to vote by mail and then try to vote again in person to test the mail-in ballot system in the Nov. 3 election. Trump was asked by a television reporter during his trip Wednesday to Wilmington, North Carolina, if he had confidence in the vote-by-mail system. “They will vote and then they are going to have to check their vote by going to the poll and voting that way because if it tabulates then they won’t be able to do that," Trump told WECT.

Chris Wallace: Trustworthy Debate Moderator? 57 replies
Posted by MissMolly 9/29/2020 4:21:19 AM Post Reply
Chris Wallace, the moderator of the first presidential debate Tuesday night, insists he will try to remain “as invisible as possible.” That would certainly be a welcome change from his performance in the final 2016 debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. A lot of Democrats no doubt assume Wallace will go too easy on the president simply because he hosts a talking-heads show for the “conservative” Fox News network. But Wallace is not an admirer of Trump. Nor is he above gotcha questions and phony “fact checks.” It was Wallace, you will probably recall, who pompously lectured Trump as follows during that last 2016 debate:

President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden went head-to-head on Tuesday night, and moderator Chris Wallace got knocked out. Wallace seemed to push left-wing talking points to help Trump and hurt Biden, but both candidates talked over him. Trump and Biden brought out the fisticuffs and both got in a few good hits. Biden stumbled but he did not come across as a bumbling fool. While Trump and Biden both went on the offensive, Trump got in more clear statements and Biden came across as shifty, especially on packing the Supreme Court.

Rice said, “I think American voters who are focussed on our international standing have to be extraordinarily dismayed. Poll after poll shows that our allies don’t trust us, that our confidence and approval of the people is in the gutter. And, yet, more importantly, we are not seeing out of the president the leadership that we need to keep us safe. National security is about keeping the American people safe,

He also said Mr. Biden’s handlers asked for “multiple breaks during the debate, which Mr. Trump doesn’t need. “We have rejected that request,” Mr. Murtaugh said.

A tidal wave from the mainstream media is speculating whether the two remaining debates between President Trump and Joe Biden should even be held after their brutal first showdown Tuesday night in Cleveland. There appears to be a wide consensus about the messy and ugly nature of the first debate -- which was filled with interruptions and insults. Two more debated are scheduled for Oct. 15 and Oct. 22, with a vice presidential debate set for Oct. 7. During MSNBC's post-debate coverage, "ReidOut" host Joy Reid questioned her colleague Nicolle Wallace, who has worked on presidential campaigns in the past, if Biden should bother showing up to the next debate.

Chris Wallace’s overt defense of Joe Biden throughout the debate on Tuesday night was so obvious, so blatant, he should be proscribed from ever “moderating” a debate again. Wallace’s performance was as Biden’s protector, his advocate, and that is undeniable. He stepped in at every moment Biden seemed lost: court-packing, lack of support of law enforcement, and Hunter’s criminality. The debate was so poorly managed. The questions were designed to aid Biden, to coddle him. No wonder Trump felt duty-bound to interrupt. Trump was debating both Wallace and Biden and only one of them is sentient.

“Two weeks to flatten curve.” Remember that? It was several months ago now. The deal elected officials struck with the American people was to trade lockdowns for hospital capacity. The fear in the early days of the COVID pandemic was that hospital capacity would be overwhelmed if we didn’t lock down, curb activity, and so forth. So we got “two weeks to flatten the curve.” New York City built a hospital into its Javits Convention Center. President Trump sent a Navy hospital ship to handle the expected caseload. None of that capacity was needed. Way back in June, CNN declared that New York had “flattened the curve.”
