Rand Paul takes victory lap on Fauci criticisms and doubles down on his firing after newly released email dump    Michael Lee 6 hrs ago

“Told you,” Paul posted on Twitter, along with the hashtag “#FireFauci.” “Can’t wait to see the media try to spin the Fauci FOIA emails.”

Paul’s comments come after more than 3,200 pages of Fauci’s emails were obtained by Buzzfeed in a Freedom of Information Act request and posted online Tuesday.

The emails shed light on what the nation’s top infectious disease expert was thinking during the early days of the pandemic, including an exchange that showed Fauci remained skeptical of the efficacy of face masks in February of last year.

"Masks are really for infected people to prevent them from spreading infection to people who are not infected rather than protecting uninfected people from acquiring infection," Fauci wrote in response to one person who was concerned about the use of masks on her upcoming trip.

"The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out virus, which is small enough to pass through material. It might, however, provide some slight benefit in keep out gross droplets if someone coughs or sneezes on you,” Fauci continued. "I do not recommend that you wear a mask, particularly since you are going to a very low risk location.”

Fauci was also warned by Director of the Scripps Research Institute Kristian Andersen that COVID-19’s “unusual features” could make the virus “(potentially) look engineered.”

"We have a good team lined up to look very critically at this, so we should know much more at the end of the weekend," Andersen wrote to Fauci as part of a chain of emails.

All we know is a black Capitol Police officer shot and killed Babbitt who was white.....reverse the ethnicities and DemoRat heads would be EXPLODING...!!

Judicial Watch Sues to Obtain Records in Fatal Shooting of Ashli Babbitt by Capitol Police Officer

From CNS News:     

Last week, the government watchdog Judicial Watch filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit in the Superior Court of D.C. to obtain the police and medical examiner records in the case of Ashli Babbitt, a 35-year-old woman who was shot dead by a Capitol police officer during the Jan. 6 breach of the U.S. Capitol.

“The normal course of action in a police-related shooting is to quickly inform the public of the details – but the lack of transparency in the killing of veteran Ashli Babbitt in the U.S. Capitol is unprecedented and obviously political,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “That Judicial Watch must file a lawsuit for basic information after five months of stonewalling is a scandal.”

Babbitt was shot and killed by an unidentified Capitol police officer as she, reportedly, was climbing through a broken interior window outside the Speaker’s Lobby off of the House Floor. She was unarmed, and a 14-year Air Force Veteran.

The lawsuit was filed in the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia after the District of Columbia failed to respond to a FOIA request that was submitted on April 8, 2021 to the Metropolitan Police Department.

The request reads, “All records, including but not limited to investigative reports, photographs, witness statements, dispatch logs, schematics, ballistics, video footage, and MPD officials’ electronic communications, concerning the January 6, 2021, death of Ashli Babbitt in the Capitol Building and its related investigation.”

Biden announces a new plan to narrow the racial wealth gap including $100 billion more in federal contracts to small businesses and rules to end housing discrimination (Anna Cooban) 12 hrs ago

The White House on Tuesday announced a new plan to narrow the racial wealth gap.

It aims to help small businesses access federal contracts and to address housing discrimination.

Biden announced the measures on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre.

President Joe Biden's administration on Tuesday announced new measures designed to narrow the racial wealth gap and build wealth in Black communities.

The plan aims to help reduce discrimination in the housing market and increase the number of federal contracts given to small disadvantaged businesses by 50%, resulting in an extra $100 billion in contracts over the next five years, the White House said in a press release.

The Biden-Harris administration unveiled the measures on the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre, when a white-supremacist mob killed an estimated 300 Black Americans in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, also known as "Black Wall Street."

"Because disparities in wealth compound like an interest rate," the White House statement said, "the disinvestment in Black families in Tulsa and across the country throughout our history is still felt sharply today."

Homeownership is a key part of Biden's plan to build wealth in Black communities. The statement cited a 2018 Brookings study that found that houses in majority-Black neighborhoods were often valued at tens of thousands of dollars less than similar homes in majority-white areas.

The White House said a cross-government effort could enforce existing fair-housing laws and develop guidance "to root out discrimination in the appraisal and homebuying process."

The White House statement also included more details about programs in Biden's American Jobs Plan to build wealth in communities of color. It said the measures included a new $10 billion Community Revitalization Fund to pay for community-led civic infrastructure projects that aim to "spark new local economic activity."

NASA to Reexamine Nicknames for Cosmic Objects Aug 5, 2020

Distant cosmic objects such as planets, galaxies, and nebulae are sometimes referred to by the scientific community with unofficial nicknames. As the scientific community works to identify and address systemic discrimination and inequality in all aspects of the field, it has become clear that certain cosmic nicknames are not only insensitive, but can be actively harmful. NASA is examining its use of unofficial terminology for cosmic objects as part of its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.

As an initial step, NASA will no longer refer to planetary nebula NGC 2392, the glowing remains of a Sun-like star that is blowing off its outer layers at the end of its life, as the “Eskimo Nebula.” “Eskimo” is widely viewed as a colonial term with a racist history, imposed on the indigenous people of Arctic regions. Most official documents have moved away from its use. NASA will also no longer use the term “Siamese Twins Galaxy” to refer to NGC 4567 and NGC 4568, a pair of spiral galaxies found in the Virgo Galaxy Cluster. Moving forward, NASA will use only the official, International Astronomical Union designations in cases where nicknames are inappropriate.

“I support our ongoing reevaluation of the names by which we refer to astronomical objects,” said Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. “Our goal is that all names are aligned with our values of diversity and inclusion, and we’ll proactively work with the scientific community to help ensure that. Science is for everyone, and every facet of our work needs to reflect that value.”

Nicknames are often more approachable and public-friendly than official names for cosmic objects, such as Barnard 33, whose nickname "the Horsehead Nebula" invokes its appearance. But often seemingly innocuous nicknames can be harmful and detract from the science.

The Agency will be working with diversity, inclusion, and equity experts in the astronomical and physical sciences to provide guidance and recommendations for other nicknames and terms for review.

"These nicknames and terms may have historical or culture connotations that are objectionable or unwelcoming, and NASA is strongly committed to addressing them," said Stephen Shih, associate administrator for Diversity and Equal Opportunity. "Science depends on diverse contributions, and benefits everyone, so this means we must make it inclusive.”
