The State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy has changed course on its ban of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine as coronavirus treatments following the governor’s urging to do so.
Beginning Thursday, pharmacies, clinics and other medical institutions were to be prohibited from dispensing or selling the drugs to treat COVID-19, according to regulations issued by the State of Ohio Board of Pharmacy. They could still be used in clinical trials, said Cameron McNamee, director of policy and communications for the board.
Devin Nunes has always represented the ragged edge of support for Donald Trump. From the moment he jumped from an Uber and sneaked into the White House in an attempt to derail the Russia investigation, to his stint in front of the House Ethics Committee, Nunes made it clear that his loyalty to Trump exceeded any other responsibility. And when it came to questions about when Nunes would be truthful with his House colleagues, he could not have been more clear: “Never.”
So it should come as no surprise that as the 2020 election approaches, Devin Nunes has been working directly with a pro-Russian Ukrainian lawmaker who previously passed along information through Rudy Giuliani. That lawmaker has been feeding information to Republicans in both the House and Senate. It comes in the form of a “packet” of supposed evidence that backs up Trump and Giuliani’s long-debunked claims about Joe Biden’s relationship to the Ukrainian government.
While there continues to be growing outrage over the news that an heiress to the Publix Super Markets chain bankrolled most of the cost of the January 6 insurrection rally — with #BoycottPublix trending on Twitter — there is another new Publix scandal here in Florida that has gotten less attention. Just a few weeks after Publix donated $100,000 to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ PAC, DeSantis announced a partnership with the the grocery chain to distribute COVID-19 vaccines to people 65+ through Publix stores in selected counties in Florida. Can you say quid pro quo? I knew you could.
The report states that there are several traitors within the Republican Party. I’m talking about people such as Manafort, Rudy Giuliani, and right-wing propaganda networks such as Fox News Channel and One America News (OAN.) It’s also politicians such as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.,) Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) who still parrot pro-Russia propaganda.
In the case of Manafort and Giuliani, they not only worked alongside former Russian intelligence operatives, but they also helped inject Russian propaganda into the mainstream media. The NIC report said the Hunter Biden-Ukraine stories were fed to right-wing media by Russian intelligence operatives through Giuliani. In 2020, I stated that conservative politicians and media sounded a lot like Russian state media. Now we know why.
