Obstructionism is a common Trump strategy, in and out of the White House. It was clearly evident during this administration when Trump federal appointees repeatedly refused to cooperate with Congress, and even lied under oath. So, it’s sadly predictable that this juvenile administration would continue that line of spiteful behavior as Biden tries to access much-needed information before assuming office in January. For example, Biden’s transition teams are receiving the cold shoulder from federal agencies and one agency is in deep denial from its management to its vendors; The FBI released their annual hate crime report, and while experts doubt it presents accurate data, there’s one stat that pushed hate crimes to an 11-year high; Scientists discover a gel that may make bandages obsolete; and New app lets you ‘hear’ just what kind of mosquito is buzzing around you. Sorry, it doesn’t keep you from getting bitten. Go beyond the headlines…
