Liveblog - Afternoon Flurry: Headlines you may have missed-10/30/20

Okay, here we go on another Friday Afternoon NEWS DUMP:

  • Why haven’t respected outlets like NBC NEWS  covered the Hunter Biden laptop propaganda?  Despite Trump’s pathetic whining about this subject, his campaign refuses to allow legit media to see the documents they say prove their case…though WSJ and the Fox News news desk saw the documents and rejected the story.
  • GOP Election Hijinks:  Officials in at least 7 counties in Pennsylvania have announced they will delay counting mail in ballots until late election night or after election day.  This will further delay and confuse election results in that state.
  • The big, fat, orange Crybaby in Chief is still telling his redcap klan rally crowds that Doctors are making up Covid deaths, with claims that doctors make more money when they attribute a patient death to covid.  This is how he treats the first responders who have been busting their asses for America since this thing started, the same ones who saved HIM when he caught Covid.
  • A Good Day for Florida Man!  A Florida man cleaned his house and found a 1 million dollar lottery ticket.  He had bought it weeks ago and had forgotten about it before he scratched it.  Don’t spend it all in one place!

  • Kyle Rittenhouse Extradited to Wisconsin

    Kyle Rittenhouse is now being detained in Kenosha, Wisconsin, facing charges that he killed two and wounded another in protests over the shooting of Jacob Blake.  He faces one count of first degree intentional homicide, one count of first degree reckless homicide, one count of attempt at first degree intentional homicide, two counts of first degree recklessly endangering safety, and one count of possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18.

    When Kyle turned himself in to Antioch authorities on August 26, he told police he had been hired to protect a Kenosha business.  Rittenhouse told officers that he had been hit by a baseball bat and a skateboard before firing his weapon in self-defense.  Antioch officers noted he had small scratches on his arms but no cuts or bruises according to police records.  A paramedic had been called twice in the evening of his detainment, with emotional behavior causing him to vomit and cry.

  • The worst day yet for COVID-19 cases:

    Coronavirus infections passed 9 million on Friday with the virus spreading across the United States at a faster rate than previously seen.

     

    The US added 1 million new Covid-19 cases only 14 days after the nation hit 8 million cases and multiple states continue reporting their highest daily case counts since the pandemic began, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. This is the fastest the country has added 1 million new cases since the pandemic began.
    The latest surge of cases appears to be driven by patients with no symptoms, said Dr. Robert Redfield, the director for the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    A “silent epidemic” of asymptomatic Covid-19 infections is “moving amongst 12- to 30-year-olds” and then making the jump to older people, Redfield told SiriusXM Doctor Radio Reports on Friday.
  • CDC reports COVID-19 spreads quickly among household members

    “This is by far the highest number of cases we’ve ever seen during the entire pandemic,” DeWine said, pointing to the previous high of 2,858. “The virus is raging throughout the state of Ohio.”
