Michigan-Ohio State football game called off due to COVID-19 cases with Wolverines

Source: ESPN

The annual rivalry game between Michigan and Ohio State has been canceled due to an increase in COVID-19 cases over the past week within the Wolverines' program, the school announced.

The decision was made after conversations with medical experts, health department officials and the university administration.

"The number of positive tests has continued to trend in an upward direction over the last seven days," Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel said. "We have not been cleared to participate in practice at this time. Unfortunately, we will not be able to field a team due to COVID-19 positives and the associated quarantining required of close-contact individuals.

"This decision is disappointing for our team and coaches, but their health and safety is paramount, and it will always come first in our decision-making."

I love football and OSU football but they should have never tried to have a season this year.
It was and still is madness.

BTW this is 100% on Trump too. He just had to get rid of all those people, protocols, and materials
that were in place and would have stopped the virus from becoming a global pandemic.

Biden makes picks for HHS secretary, CDC director / GROWN UPS! GROWN UPS! GROWN UPS!


Biden chose California Attorney General Xavier Becerra as his nominee for HHS secretary. The 12-term veteran of U.S. Congress had previously advocated for healthcare issues as AG in California and led a coalition that worked to uphold the Affordable Care Act passed during the Obama administration when Biden was vice president.

Additionally, the president-elect picked Massachusetts General Hospital chief of infectious diseases Dr. Rochelle Walensky, an HIV/AIDS expert, as the nominee to head up the CDC. Walensky will be thrown into the mix of the COVID-19 pandemic response with an onus on vaccine distribution right out of the gate.


The president-elect has been active in shaping his future administration, naming a number of cabinet members already, while also unveiling the beginning steps to his plan for combatting COVID-19, including the appointment of a 12-person coronavirus advisory board.

Biden’s advisory board is being headed up by former surgeon general Dr. Vivek Murthy, former FDA commissioner Dr. David Kessler and Yale University’s Dr. Marcella Nunez-Smith. Dr. Luciana Borio, Rick Bright, Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Dr. Atul Gawande, Dr. Celine Gounder, Dr. Julie Morita, Michael Osterholm, Loyce Pace, Dr. Robert Rodriguez and Dr. Eric Goosby round out the board.


Xavier Becerra a question

Is his first name pronounced with a Z or the Spanish H?

On a day where we had 2,800 deaths (I think that is right), 200,000 new cases of C-19, and Trump...

.... was stoned out of his gourd as he gives an award to Lou Holtz. If you can stomach it watch this clip and
stop it @ 25 seconds and look at the size of his pupils. The man needs to be removed from office today.
We are losing an American every 28 seconds and the whole world is in the shitter because Trump just had to
get rid of the people, the protocols, and the materials that would have stopped the virus after all those "things"
were "the black guy's ideas."

Joe Biden now officially has more than the 270 Electoral College


Thanx to highplansdem for posting this!

Grifters gotta grift

Trump announces that his fundraising committees, including the RNC & his new
leadership PAC, have raised **$207.5 million** since Election Day


Thanx to DUer mahatmakanejeeves for posting this!

ATTN Steve Mnuchin ... she taught at the University of California, Irvine School of Law (wiki)

Early life and education

After graduating from Phillips Academy,[3][7] Porter attended Yale University, where she majored in American studies, graduating in 1996.[8] Her undergraduate thesis was titled The Effects of Corporate Farming on Rural Community.[9] She was a member of Grace Hopper College (formerly Calhoun College) at Yale.[citation needed] Porter also interned for Chuck Grassley during this time.[10]

Porter later attended Harvard Law School, where she was the Notes editor for the Harvard Women’s Law Journal.[11] She studied under current U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, and graduated magna cum laude with her Juris Doctor in 2001.[6]

Porter clerked for Judge Richard S. Arnold of the United States Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit in Little Rock, Arkansas.[11] She practiced with the law firm of Stoel Rives LLP in Portland, Oregon,[11] and was the Project Director for the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges' Business Bankruptcy Project.[12][13][14][11][15][16] Porter was Associate Professor of Law at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas School of Law.[11] In 2005, she joined the faculty of the University of Iowa College of Law as an associate law professor,[11] becoming a full professor there in 2011[17] before joining the faculty as a tenured professor at the University of California, Irvine School of Law, in 2011.[8][18]

Porter's textbook Modern Consumer Law addresses consumer laws in light of Dodd–Frank and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.[19]

My guesses on the redacted names on the DoJ Presidential bribery for pardon investigation.

Bribe taker Donald Trump

Bribers (there were 2) Lev Parnas & Igor Fruman

Person or persons who will be pardoned or have been pardoned? Paul Manafort and or Michael Flynn.
Edit thanx to smart DUers it could be Rick Gates too.

Manafort and Gates would be good choices because they fed data analytics to the Russians to the
Russians so they could rat fuck the 2016 elections.

"Even as he was working for the Trump campaign, Manafort continued to communicate with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian employee of his consulting business who the FBI says was linked to Russian intelligence, prosecutors said in court papers last year."


Intermediary Rudy Giuliani

Will Trump supporters still back him if it is shown that he took a bribe to help the very people who have
screwed with America and our elections? My guess is yes.

ATTN Donald Trump, Trump Family members, and those that helped Trump in his crimes

This is what is gonna happen to you.

George Takei for the win.

George Takei: Biden slipped and fell while playing with his dog today. When doctors examined his foot and discovered hairline fractures, Biden explained that, no, it wasn't the fall that cause them. It was the serious ass- kicking he gave Trump in November.
