Liberal Logic Update
This Democrat has to one of the annoying figures on the political stage…and it is a “stage.”
Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams said Tuesday that the sexual assault allegedly committed by presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden “did not happen,” repeating talking points circulated by Biden’s campaign since the scandal broke.
Straight out of the liberal playbook; Sexual Assault – Conservative accused = automatic guilt. Liberal accused = discredit the woman who was assaulted.
Abrams, who has openly campaigned to be Biden’s running mate, said in a CNN interview the alleged 1993 assault never took place.
“I believe Joe Biden,” she said on CNN. “I believe that he is a person who has demonstrated that his love of family, his love of our community, has been made perfectly clear through his work as a congressional leader and as an American leader. I know Joe Biden and I think that he is telling the truth and that this did not happen.”
Biden’s campaign has denied an allegation by former Senate aide Tara Reade that Biden assaulted her by penetrating her with his fingers in a congressional hallway in 1993. BuzzFeed reported Tuesday the Biden campaign has advised top surrogates to say the alleged assault “did not happen.”
Abrams tweeted “I believe women” in 2018 after Christine Blasey Ford accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, but Tuesday she simply said she believed women “deserve to be heard.”
After the courageous and compelling testimony from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford yesterday, it is shameful that Kavanaugh’s nomination is being rushed forward.
I believe women, and I believe survivors of violence always deserve to be supported and to have their voices heard.

Abrams also falsely claimed that while Reade’s accusation was investigated, there was “no investigation” of Ford’s accusation against Kavanaugh. An FBI investigation found no corroboration of the allegations by Ford or Deborah Ramirez against Kavanaugh.
It keeps happening and it should – The President and the Vice President keep getting praise from level minded Democrats.
Vice President Pence took a tour of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, on Tuesday and spoke at a roundtable discussion with staff and Gov. Tim Walz, who praised the Trump administration and Pence for their efforts to work with governors during the coronavirus outbreak.
“I can tell you that the vice president spends countless hours on the phone with governors every week, he’s there to pick up the phone when we call,” Walz said. “I want to thank you and the president.”
Waltz also praised the men and woman who work at the Mayo Clinic.
“I stand on the shoulders of giants,” Walz said. “What’s really great at Mayo Clinic is those giants are at the table with us today in many cases.”
“So I just want to say how grateful I am Mr. Vice President that you would come and take a look at this,” Walz said.
“We will get through this together,” Pence said. “We will protect the most vulnerable. We will put America back to work. And we will heal our land.”
Tesla Inc. late Wednesday surprised Wall Street by posting a first-quarter profit amid the broad economic destruction wrought by the coronavirus pandemic.
Tesla TSLA, +4.08% Chief Executive Elon Musk kept the surprises going on a post-results call with analysts, veering off script to condemn the ongoing restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the virus.
Echoing his similar criticism on Twitter, Musk called the orders an “infringement of people’s rights” and likened them to fascism.
Tesla’s sole U.S. vehicle-producing factory in Fremont, Calif., has been shuttered since late March as the San Francisco Bay Area was among the first U.S. regions to issue mandatory shutdowns.
“It’s outrage” that will cause “great harm” not just to Tesla but other companies and suppliers, Musk said in the call.
Earlier Wednesday, Tesla said it earned $16 million, or 9 cents a share, in the quarter, versus a GAAP loss of $4.10 a share in the year-ago period.
So this would be really cool!
Talk about next level!
Today’s virtual reality systems can create immersive visual experiences, but seldom do they enable users to feel anything — particularly walls, appliances and furniture.
A new device, however, uses multiple strings attached to the hand and fingers to simulate the feel of obstacles and heavy objects.
By locking the strings when the user’s hand is near a virtual wall, for instance, the device simulates the sense of touching the wall.
Similarly, the string mechanism enables people to feel the contours of a virtual sculpture, sense resistance when they push on a piece of furniture or even give a high five to a virtual character.
