  1. So what is the political calculus for Cruz, Haley, Hawley and any other R wanting to run in 2024? Don't get how Trump running helps them...ever.
  2. Saw that too. Most in under $10. Still thought it was unusual that a few of the other SPACS I check out on that site didn't show any levels close to 78 institutional ownership disclosures. I'm not familiar with fintel.io, or the quality of their data, or if it's unusual or not, but the CCIV data seemed to be a huge outlier.
  3. Further proof that Trump planned all of this is that "Stop The Steal" was launched by Roger Stone.....in 2016. This was planned if he lost in the primaries, and then if he lost to Clinton, and finally got a chance to implemented it when he lost to Biden. It was a preconceived plan to propagate a dangerous lie and have his followers to act on it. https://www.cnn.com/2020/11/13/busines
  4. Many in this "jury" are complicit in the insurrection themselves. Senators themselves amplified the stolen election lie. There will be another Trump who is more competent. This was just a blueprint for how to overthrow our government that came damn close to working. If Trump doesn't go full blast on the stolen election lie for months, play footsie with the Proud Boys and militia nuts, and doesn't organize the Jan. 6th event there is no insurrection. It's all on him on Congress critters who jumped on the bandwagon. This isn't a criminal case, but certainly could be for not only Trump but certain members of Congress. 18 U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government U.S. Code Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof— Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.

  5. Question for the pros here. I was clicking around on fintel.io and looked up the institutional ownership of CCIV and saw that there are now 78 institutional owners. Now, I may be completely not understanding that data, but that seems like a huge tell that CCIV will be Lucid. I couldn't find another SPAC with anything close to 78 institutional owners. PSTH, the mega Bill Ackman SPAC has zero. Thiel's BTWN that had rumors with Tokopedia has zero. IPOD has 1. I find it hard to believe institutions are blindly flowing into CCIV on a rumor, or getting in on the hopes of a different merge. Am I missing something, or not reading the data correctly? https://fintel.io/search?search=cciv
  6. Couldn’t find the 2007 music thread. Dusted off Menomena’s Friend and Foe on vinyl, munched some edibles and drank a martini. Great band.
  7. Same boat. I live in a religious town and they are huge with the church folk, I honestly think being known as a conservative religious company is the big draw around here. They make a good sandwich, but never feel compelled to wait in line for it.
  8. My opinion is that IPOE/SoFi will generate great returns for me and is an at least a 5 year hold. I have 1000 shares currently @ a 19 average and not worried about it. I was looking to add early last week in the 18's and then it exploded up. Still looking to add. This is probably a fine place to do it, but I'm greedy and want to wait until it's closer to 20. At 20, SoFi is a $17B company. My personal belief is that SoFi will become a $100B+ company at some point in 5 years.
  9. Just a heads up. PLTR lock up expiry I think happens mid month. I have no idea what it will do to sp, but something to watch for I suppose. I'm a hold and add with PLTR so will ride it out regardless.
  10. Love DNMR. Will add more on next sell off. Parked 10K @ 10.2 in LOKB hoping for lightning to strike twice.
  11. The unvaccinated control group is getting pounded in comparison. Seems like the unvaccinated population should be shrinking at this point. I would like to see the overall cases and deaths go down in Israel. Not really clear why it hasn't fallen that much with the vaccination % and positive news on the data, although it seems like 3 weeks after the 2 shot is when the efficacy is highest. Hoping the next 2-3 weeks show the overall cases, hospitalization and death start trending down for Israel.
  12. That one dude who was up millions had to of sold by now, right?
  13. I saw this video a while ago about another guy who figured out he was being duped. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hOkKkH23pi4
  14. https://news.yahoo.com/israels-rapid-rollout-provides-the-first-realworld-proof-that-covid-vaccination-works-as-well-as-promised-152103525.html
  15. I would seem like it, but then again after the past few weeks, who knows.
  16. Either the CCIV/Lucid is really happening or this will be a spectacular implosion. Holding my 500 @ 13 for the news one way or another.
  17. South Africa reports 6,141 new cases today, 1,000 less than yesterday and continuing its rapid descent. I'm still not understanding what the WHO is talking about when it comes out today and says: ‘Fueling Africa’s second wave’ The World Health Organization warned Thursday that more contagious variants of Covid-19 are “fueling Africa’s second wave” and the variant first identified in South Africa “is predominant and powering record case numbers in South Africa and the sub-region.” According to the WHO, the B.1.351 strain has now been identified in in Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, the French Indian Ocean region of Mayotte, Zambia and 24 other non-African nations. As of Monday, Coronavirus infections in the region have grown by 50% since Dec. 29 when compared with the previous four weeks, the WHO said. Covid-19 deaths have also been on the rise, roughly doubling over that same period. The numbers I see don't seem to align with that at all. Like many other countries, Africa looks to have experienced a second wave in late Nov/early Dec. As of today South Africa: trending way down. Botswana: trending down. Ghana: small spike, flat but maybe trending up?, Kenya: trending way down. Mayotte: seems like a spike, uneven reporting but looks flat to down, Zambia: looks like it got a later start, the midst of a second wave, 7 day average down to flat, could reverse up? If I were in Africa looking at the US cases, I think I'd be more worried of importing the US variant. I don't doubt the fear from the CDC and the WHO about the South African variant, I'm just not seeing it impacting Africa any worse than Europe or the US. Maybe they have different numbers?
  18. Keep an eye on Israel for the answer to this. Pfizer gave them a deal on the vaccine in return for data. As of a week ago, in a small study, there was optimism that it would reduce spread. Peter Weber January 20, 2021 The COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech is 95 percent effective at protecting against infection, large human trials found, but there is no conclusive evidence yet that the vaccines prevent transmission of the new coronavirus. "Early findings from Oxford/AstraZeneca revealed its vaccine could have some effect on transmitting the virus, while similar results have also been reported by Pfizer/BioNTech," Reuters reports. But "scientists do not yet know whether COVID-19 vaccinations will reduce transmission because this was not tested in the trials." A new study from Israel's Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer suggested that the Pfizer vaccine does, in fact, reduce transmission. The small study of 102 medical workers found that after the second dose of the vaccine, 100 of the subjects had significantly higher levels of antibodies than even people who recovered from severe COVID-19 infections, The Jerusalem Post reports. "The results of the survey are in line with Pfizer's experiment and even better than expected," said Prof. Gili Regev-Yochay, director of Sheba's Infectious Disease Epidemiology Unit. "I expect that the survey results of the other employees participating will be similar. There is certainly reason for optimism." It isn't clear how long immunity will last, and the results are preliminary, but Regev-Yochay said it appears to her that fully vaccinate people won't shed the virus, meaning they won't pass it on to others. https://news.yahoo.com/israeli-study-suggests-pfizer-covid-143104894.html
