And the Emmy for Best Acting as a Sitting Governor goes to … Gov. Andrew Cuomo—who’s been blamed for letting the deadly coronavirus run rampant in New York’s nursing homes—is set to receive an International Emmy award for his daily TV briefings about the disease. But it won’t be for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Real-Life Drama. Instead, Cuomo will be recognized for his “effective use of television during the pandemic,” the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Friday. “The Governor’s 111 daily briefings worked so well because he effectively created television shows, with characters, plot lines, and stories of success and failure,”

This clown will be president one day, given that we accept rigged elections. All because Dubya let the guy off the hook for the billions of dollars missing from HUD under Cuomo's watch. There have already been stories about how women find this troll sexy, again setting the stage.

How about killing more senior citizen in nursing homes from coronavirus than any other governor? There may be an award for that.

It's what happens to awards when they're given out for participation. Everyone gets one, they lose value, luster, and even a lesser imprimatur. The loser gets to fondle them in their den fully knowing they don't mean diddly squat.

Well he did explain during one of his COVID briefings how Italian families residing in New York enjoy dinners consisting of Sunday gravy (tomato sauce), spaghetti, and meatballs, just about every Sunday afternoon. By doing that he was able to change the subject away from COVID that he really knew nothing about, to spaghetti and meatballs that he obviously knows a lot about. In the world of the nutty and partisan TV news media, that should be worth at least one Emmy these days.

Biden picks architect of DACA to lead DHS 2 replies
Posted by Ribicon 11/23/2020 2:19:20 PM Post Reply
Presumptive President-elect Joseph R. Biden said Monday he will nominate Alejandro Mayorkas, the man who oversaw the creation of DACA during the Obama years, to be his Homeland Security secretary. Mr. Mayorkas has extensive experience in the department, having served as head of the citizenship agency and then as deputy for the whole department, underneath then-Secretary Jeh Johnson.(Snip) Republicans opposed Mr. Mayorkas because of an ongoing investigation into his oversight of a key visa program for wealthy investors during his time at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, and the matter—now concluded—is certain to come up in his confirmation hearings.

A 29-year-old straphanger became the latest New Yorker shoved onto subway tracks on Sunday when he was attacked at a Brooklyn station. The victim was on a northbound 4 train shortly before 11:30 a.m. when his attacker, who had been sleeping, woke up and began screaming at him, police said. It was unclear what the suspect was screaming, the cops said. When the victim and his girlfriend got off at the Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center stop, the screaming man also got off and followed the couple, then pushed him on the southbound tracks before running off.

Governments across Europe are failing to protect their citizens from toxic air pollution, with most Europeans still breathing filthy air in their cities, according to data. Pollutants from farming, domestic heating and vehicles are beyond the levels needed to ensure breathable air within World Health Organization guidelines, despite EU legislation, government pledges and years of campaigning. Only Ireland, Iceland, Finland and Estonia showed levels of fine particulate matter–one of the most dangerous forms of air pollution–that were below the WHO guidelines in 2018, according to data released on Monday by the European Environment Agency. Exposure to such pollution caused about 417,000 premature deaths

Vegans may be significantly more likely to develop bone fractures than meat-eaters, a new study revealed. The large, longitudinal study published Sunday in the journal BMC Medicine, revealed that there were 19.4 more cases of fractures in vegans and 4.1 more cases in vegetarians for every 1,000 people over 10 years.(Snip) Researchers recruited nearly 55,000 healthy adults from the UK—meat eaters, pescatarians, vegetarians and vegans—to answer a questionnaire on diet, socio-demographic characteristics, lifestyle, and medical history between 1993 and 2001, and followed up with them in 2010. By 2016, the study authors found 3,941 total fractures among the participants.

The United States on Sunday officially pulled out of the Open Skies Treaty, a nearly 20-year-old international agreement allowing nations to conduct unarmed surveillance flights over each other’s territory to collect data on military forces. The move marked the end of a six-month notification process to Russia and other signatory nations. President Trump and other critics have said the treaty isn’t in the U.S. national interest and have accused Russia of barring U.S. reconnaissance flights over regions such as Kaliningrad, where nuclear weapons are suspected of being present.(Snip) Presumptive President-elect Joseph R.

Democrats want a $2.2 trillion bill, while Republicans prefer $500 billion with no aid to state and local government. “As long as Mitch McConnell is sitting on his hands

This is why you don’t swallow conspiracy theories whole-cloth without waiting for evidence to be presented. Amazingly, it appears that Trump’s own campaign is now disowning Sidney Powell’s fairly out there claims about German servers and millions of switched votes. And I don’t say that as someone who wouldn’t want to believe it if there was proof, but there was obviously no proof and plenty to the contrary. Here’s the Trump campaign today essentially telling Powell to go jump in a lake, which is probably the most surprising development of the last several months. Well, this is awkward.
