#CorruptionWeek #Collins Thread
so Collins and his congressional pall have been using their positions on the committees and boards to make millions. Surprised? Evidentally there’s no rule against it. That’s about to change, but in the meantime...
Mr. Collins may have been the largest investor in health companies on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, but one-third of its members also bought and sold biotech, pharmaceutical and medical device stocks.

@USRepLong @RepLarryBucshon and @RepMullin all of whom served with Collins on the panel’s health subcommittee each invested in Innate. The subcommittee weighed in on topics ranging from the Food and Drug Administration’s authority over speeding up approval of new drugs to the ACA
Beyond Innate Immunotherapeutics, Collins has held leadership roles in other biotech companies. Until this past week, he was chairman of the board of directors of ZeptoMetrix, a private lab company based in Buffalo that he co-founded and that has received millions of dollars in 4
federal contracts. He also reported owning between $25 million and $50 million in shares of the company, but has since transferred an unknown amount into his wife’s name. In June, he sold as much as $1 million of stock in Chembio Diagnostics, a medical tests

and equipment manufacturer. Collins did not disclose these ties in committee hearings when topics overlapped with his business interests, including the development of a test for the Zika virus and whether the F.D.A. should more closely regulate some types of lab tests. 😱

Earlier, in 2013, he brought up the experimental drug that Innate was developing in a hearing about brain research, but did not mention his financial stake in the company.

Time to see what all those corrupt fuqqers own, and how the changed the face of medicine.
@karolcummins 👊
Side note, @RepMullin just got smacked to send $40k back to family owned biz yesterday by ethics committee.

@RepDLamborn purchased between $15,001 and $50,000 in Innate stock on January 24, 2017, according to a form filed with the House clerk. Then on June 27, 2017, he sold what he described as less than $1,000 in stock in the company, after the stock tanked.

African nations that have borrowed from China, soon will be indebted to only them. Some countries have borrowed over 80% of their GDP. China has become the bag man of Africa.
China's Rising Power in Africa npr.org/templates/stor…
In recent years, China's trade with the continent has reached more than $55 billion and continues to grow, with predictions that it will double by 2020, if not before.

China is now Africa's third-largest trading partner. But as its profile has grown on the continent, so have

‼️Thread - Zero Tolerance Epic Fail‼️

According to an unpublished report by DHS IG report is the government’s first attempt to autopsy the chaos produced between May 5 and June 20, when President Trump abruptly halted the separations under mounting pressure.

The DHS Office
of Inspector General’s review found at least 860 migrant children were left in Border Patrol holding cells longer than the 72-hour limit mandated by U.S. courts, with one minor confined for 12 days and another for 25.

Many of those children were put in chain-link holding pens
The facilities were designed as short-term way stations, lacking beds and showers, while the children awaited transfer to shelters run by HHS.

(They) held at least 564 children longer than they were supposed to, according to the report. Officials in the El Paso sector held 297

Here comes the lies.

Kav’s turn. He was very obsessed with the placement of his name card. Very nervous, no smile. Good.

Oooooh he’s pissed 🤣🤣🤣🤣 as if he was the one who was attacked. His wife looks sad and worried. She’s dressed in black. He’s in the verge of yelling.
He is showing the Dr. Hyde @lawrence mentioned right now, bad move. No more choir boy. He’s scaring me, I no longer have any doubt that he’s guilty.

He’s got a different opening than published yesterday. Extremely defensive. His wife is holding back tears. He looks on the
verge of tears. He’s outraged. He won’t quit.

He should, he’s a disgrace.

This anger does not serve him well. It is a typical rich kid, elitist attitude that we hate. Bad move.

He’s crying. Dr. Ford did not.

Grassley is a liar. The two other lawyers have said that the Rep have not interest in talking to them.

What a difference between Feinstein and Grassley. Feinstein introduced Ford, Grassley did not. Mysoginistic pig

#ChristineBlaseyFord #WeAreWithChristine
I’m sure glad the gop is not questioning, it would be ugly. Hatch is just glaring at her as are his aids behind him.

Both of her lawyers are flanking her, her husband is behind her, he pushed her chair in, rubbed her shoulder. I’m so glad she has the support.

Here she goes
Dr. Ford is reading her opening statement. She is so nervous and has asked for coffee.

Questioning begins with Rachel Mitchell who apologises for Dr. Ford’s terrified testimony and says that’s not right.

First question regarding when Dr. Ford reached out to WaPo.

Shell and Exxon's secret 1980s climate change warnings
Newly found documents from the 1980s show that fossil fuel companies privately predicted the global damage that would be caused by their products.

tinyurl.com/ya5hk9b3
In the 1980s, oil companies like Exxon and Shell carried out internal assessments of the carbon dioxide released by fossil fuels, and forecast the planetary consequences of these emissions.

In 1982 Exxon predicted that by about 2060, CO2 levels would reach double the

preindustrial level – and that this would push the planet’s average temperatures up by about 2°C over then-current levels

In 1988, an internal report by Shell projected similar effects but also found that CO2 could double even earlier, by 2030. Privately, these companies did
