2A: The New York Times is getting some well-deserved mockery over the above. Anybody else see why?
CHIEF TWIT: When Elon Musk tweeted, “[Twitter] refused to take action on child exploitation for years!”, former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey tweeted back, “This is false.” (N.b., in the past, Dorsey has claimed he knew nothing about the child porn problem when he was CEO. But now he claims he did? Sorry, Jack. You can’t have it both ways!)
Musk responded, “No, it is not. When Ella Irwin, who now runs Trust & Safety, joined Twitter earlier this year, almost no one was working on child safety. She raised this with Ned & Parag, but they rejected her staffing request. I made it top priority immediately.”
N.b., back in January 2021 a teen victim and his mother filed a federal lawsuit against Twitter for refusing to remove pornographic images of the boy that had been posted by sex traffickers. The suit alleged that Twitter had told them the images would not be removed, because they did not violate the company’s policies.
In other Twitter news, at least two prominent and influential Democrats had close relatives working at the corrupt, pre-Elon social media company. One of these was Dr. Anthony Fauci’s daughter while the other was John Podesta’s niece.
Also, the last link below contains the latest info dump, this time detailing the banning of President Trump.
COVID-19: There are two drugs that the FDA* has approved for treatment of the ‘rona, i.e., Pfizer’s Paxlovid and Merck’s Molnupiravi (aka Lagevrio).
Paxlovid was not tested on vaxxxed people. Go figure. In actual use, it causes something called “rebound”, which we who have paid attention have seen happen to both Joe Biden and Tony Fauci. Both of these men had gotten four mRNA jabs when they caught COVID-19. They both then took Paxlovid and appeared to recover quickly, only to rebound and get sick again, whereupon they took more Paxlovid, finally got over the bug, then credited the jabs and the drug with saving their lives.
Molnupiravir, which was originally developed to treat flu, is known to stimulate viruses to rapidly mutate. Because of this, the FDA only narrowly approved (vote: 13-10) emergency authorization for its use in ‘rona patients. The drug also appears to cause rebounding.
*Psst … the FDA gets more than half its funding from Big Pharma, which makes little or no profit off drugs like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, which are not approved for the ‘rona despite the fact that they often work well and cause no rebounding.

RUSSIA: [2:45] – FAUXTUS just pulled off an historic prisoner exchange with Russia. We gave up Viktor Bout, an arms dealer who is known to provide terrorist with lethal weapons, for Brittney Griner, a black woman who shoots hoops for a living.
Griner is also apparently so dumb that she didn’t bother to read the “Things You Can’t Bring Into Russia” list before packing. I went to Russia in 1972. There is a list and you better believe we were drilled about what was on it before we left.
On CNN, James Carville opined that people who are criticizing the Griner exchange are racist Putin-lovers, ignoring the fact that, as soon as Bout got back home, he announced his support for Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. In fact, he says he thought they should’ve done it much sooner. CLICK https://twitter.com/francis_scarr/status/1601592128743669760 [:37].
MSNBC claimed Griner would’ve been trade-freed sooner if only she’d been a white man, ignoring the fact that the trade did not include Paul Whelan, the white male former U.S. Marine who was already rotting in a Russian prison before Griner even got arrested.
The Russian media marked the trade by laughing about how stupid Americans are.
TRANS: The 8th Circuit Court of Appeals has unanimously ruled to permanently block the Biden administration’s plan to force doctors and insurers to perform or pay for gender-transition procedures.
The suit was filed by the Religious Sisters of Mercy, Sacred Heart Mercy Health Care Center in Alma, MI, SMP Health System, University of Mary, Catholic Benefits Association, Diocese of Fargo, Catholic Charities of North Dakota, and Catholic Medical Association.
The Catholic position is that God doesn’t make mistakes. If you’re uncomfortable in the body He gave you, you need psychological and spiritual help, not medical mutilation.
