  1. Trump administration isn't backing off proposed cuts to CDC budget Steve Benen 2 days ago A state-by-state breakdown of coronavirus cases WH, Congress close on virus relief plan It was a month ago yesterday when the White House released its official budget for the coming fiscal year, to the delight of Donald Trump's political opponents. Writing for Esquire, Charles P. Pierce took a look at the latest blueprint and concluded the document deserved to be seen as "political suicide."
  2. US preparedness to deal with the threat of coronavirus has been hampered by the personnel and budget cuts made by the Trump administration over the past three years, according to health experts. There is no one in the White House tasked specifically to oversee a coordinated government-wide response in the event of a pandemic, since the post of senior director for global health security and biothreats on the national security council (NSC) was eliminated last May. The office was established in 2016 after the outbreak of the Ebola virus in Africa demonstrated the US government was not set up to move with the speed and decisiveness necessary to react to a really lethal epidemic. The White House global health “czar” was supposed to coordinate international, national, state and local organisations, public and private, to confront a global epidemic, backed by the direct authority of the president. After he became national security adviser, John Bolton eliminated the office as part of an NSC reorganisation, as he did not see global health issues as a national security priority. As the first person-to-person transmission of coronavirus in the US was reported, and as evidence emerges that it could be much more contagious than initially thought, health and disaster planning experts argued for contingency preparations for a global outbreak. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jan/31/us-coronavirus-budget-cuts-trump-underprepared
  3. Some of my in-laws had this yet were unaware according to their doctor. Yet they got through it. It is not rocket science except to someone such as Rump who has been out of touch with reality most of his life.

  5. BTW where in the hell did the "Super Delegates" come from? Screw this group!!!!!
  6. Time for the democrats to force the issue....... There are too many eggs in one basket. The House and Senate and People must take back america by removing presidential privilege OR find the guts to over ride the RUMP.
  7. This describes an ALEC Koch dollars takeover such as happened to the GOP and is happening to the Democrats.
  8. The system is not working for everyone no matter your politics. Special interest movers and shakers from two parties took over and decided who can and cannot participate in the debates and such. The Caucus does not work for the same reasons The DNC and RNC should have nothing to do with deciding who can participate or who will be candidates ..... this is the voters job. The RNC and DNC have become conservative special interest groups thus forcing millions of voters out of the process. I don't trust the DNC!!!!!!

  10. The media and the Powers-That-Be would have you believe that this is the first-time coronavirus has ever infected humankind. That is simply not true. In fact, about 20% of common colds are caused by…coronavirus. (1) It is important to know that coronaviruses have been around for hundreds of years. I know this strain is different, but all viruses change (mutate) on a yearly basis. In fact, the influenza virus changes during every flu season. As I previously stated, I have been treating these viral changes for over 25 years. My partners (Dr. Nusbaum, Dr Ng, Taylor Eason, NP & Jenny Drummond, PA) have all found success using natural therapies to enhance the body’s immune system as well as to kill viruses including flu-like viruses. Today, I ordered intravenous hydrogen peroxide, vitamin C, ozone, and glutathione for my sick patients. I am confident these therapies will help them recover uneventfully. Keep in mind my partners and I have nearly 80 years of experience with these therapies! Not only do they work, they can be miraculous. Just ask our patients! Intravenous nutrient therapies are wonderful treatments, but there are other oral natural therapies that are effective against viral infections including coronavirus. Vitamins A, C, and D along with iodine have proven benefit. At the first sign of any illness, I suggest my patients take 100,000 U of vitamin A (NOT beta-carotene), 50,000 U of vitamin D3 and 5-10,000 mg of vitamin C per day for four days. Pregnant women should not take high doses of vitamins A and D. Vitamin C can be increased to bowel tolerance. What else can you do? It is important to eat a healthy diet free of refined sugar, salt, oils, and flour. And, perhaps the most important thing is to maintain optimal hydration. That means taking your weight in pounds, divide the number by two and the resultant number is the minimum amount of water to drink in ounces per day. I cannot stress the importance of drinking optimal amounts of water. I had my annual lecture last Saturday. My office manager, Ann, called me one week ago today and said she felt like she was getting sick. She started taking the above supplements (vitamins A, C, and D) and reported that next morning, “This stuff works. I feel totally normal. I am sure I was getting sick. I can’t believe how much better I feel.” We hear the same results from our patients on a daily basis. It is too bad hospitals refuse to use natural therapies on sick patients. That is when a patient needs it the most. Intravenous hydrogen peroxide, vitamin C and ozone should be done in every hospital across the United States. But, don’t hold your breath for that to occur. Over 20 years ago when I rounded on patients in the hospital, I ordered a nutrient IV that contained vitamin C and minerals. Right after the order was registered, I received a call from the pharmacy department. The head pharmacist told me that was not on the formulary. I replied, “I don’t care. I wrote the order and I expect it to be done. I know you have the ingredients in the hospital.” I was told I would have to contact the medical director and go in front of a committee to make my case. The medical director called me later that day telling me that IV would never be allowed. I told him I would not admit any more patients to that hospital. Final Thoughts: Coronavirus is nothing to take lightly. It is also nothing to panic about. Yes, some will get very sick from it. Keep in mind that people get sick from many things. Viruses can cause serious problems. To minimize your risk, follow the instructions I have outlined for you here. At the Center for Holistic Medicine we have been ready for COVID-19 for over 25 years. I look forward to seeing you at my office.

  12. I don't believe Biden can weather 4 years as president considering his loss of memory, his flaring temper etc etc etc. Maybe Joe has had mini strokes. Every person who has served always shows wear during the period. Yes Bernie is about the same age however he demonstrates strength along the way. In spite of his heart thing he is a strong human being. Joe appears to be taking attitude control pharmaceuticals as we speak. His facial color and speaking manners have changed..
  13. Joe turns 77 on election day and his senility issue is not going away. Last night I say he appeared to be on pharmaceuticals. The last time leaders of the national Democratic Party coalesced around the safe and electable candidate they gave the United States to Donald Trump. Listening to current party leaders and pundits talk about Biden versus Sanders, it’s hard to avoid feeling like we’re heading for a repeat of 2016, leading to another disaster in November (with even more serious repercussions). I am not and never have been a Bernie Bro, but it is urgent we understand why Sanders is a far better choice than Biden in the general election—and that Sanders still has a real shot at winning the nomination. This entire race can swing back to Sanders as fast as it swung to Biden. The coronavirus underscores how fast things change, and why a universal, national health care plan is far superior to maintaining a system of for-profit private insurance that is totally unfit for global pandemics, let alone ordinary health care crises. Biden is as much a Dem-Party Bro as can be, which sets him up well for the primary. But what works in a primary might not be so effective in general election swing states—or with voters deeply cynical about party insiders. Sanders, by contrast, is the perfect mix of outsider and hell-raiser needed for the general election, where, if we look at 2016 in America—and also election patterns across Europe too—outsider status, someone “different than the status quo,” is what’s winning. The strength of Sanders is that he is pure on the key wedge issues that are the ultimate concerns of the voters desperately needed to defeat Trump in November. And he is more trusted by the voters who are skeptical of party insiders. If trust were the only thing Sanders had going for him, it would not be sufficient, but he has way more going for him, against Trump. https://www.thenation.com/article/politics/sanders-biden-democrat-establishment/
  14. This situation is evolving quickly ..... Trump wants to bail out oil billionaires facing plummeting oil prices with taxpayer dollars, due to the unfolding health and economic crisis. Yesterday we urgently reached out to you yesterday because Trump wants to bail out oil billionaires facing plummeting oil prices with taxpayer dollars, due to the unfolding health and economic crisis. We asked you to join us in saying no to a fossil fuel handout and Congress heard your message!1 There's already opposition to the bailout from both sides of the aisle, and a new bill straight from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that puts people first. The bad news is this is just the beginning. Trump and corporate elites are going to take full advantage of this crisis to protect oil profits and consolidate their power undemocratically. This is not surprising though. We’ve seen it before. In this case, fracking CEO Harold Hamm and other billionaire oil and gas executives are clamoring for a handout while privately urging the President not to adopt a national paid sick leave policy that could help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.2 It’s despicable. But, we’re greater than fear or leaving our friends and families behind. Now is the time for action. That’s why we are pulling together an urgent Oil Bailout Watchdog Team. We have to be extremely vigilant and expose any attempt to prop up big oil rather than address immediate needs to protect health care providers, workers, and families across the country. To do that, we need funds. Make your urgent donation right now to stop Trump’s oil bailout and keep all of Greenpeace’s campaigns going during this crisis. I won’t mince words. The novel coronavirus is a massive public health crisis. I know you’re doing your part to address it –– staying home if you’re sick, washing your hands, checking on your neighbors, canceling travel and events, and more. THANK YOU! The solidarity our movement is showing gives me so much courage. States and the federal government must immediately support people who are suffering the immediate impacts of COVID-19 and the global economic crisis. That means quality health care for all, paid sick leave for people who stay home with their families, compensation for those who must be quarantined, and protections for healthcare workers. It does NOT mean handouts for billionaires whose money insulates them from the crisis. Corporate and political elites use shocks like this to consolidate power, so we need to be extremely viligiant around what happens next. Donate now to power our Oil Bailout Watchdog Team and ensure all our campaigns are more powerful than ever during this crisis. Putting people, public health, and planetary health first means no fossil fuel bailout. Thank you for taking action in your communities and with our congressional representatives to make sure the needs of the vulnerable are put first. Let's continue to fight for a Green New Deal and an economy beyond fossil fuels that builds long-term prosperity and economic security for working families. Let’s make it happen, Annie Leonard Executive Director, Greenpeace USA [1] https://www.politico.com/newsletters/morning-energy/2020/03/12/whats-an-oil-industry-to-do-786021 [2] https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/03/10/trump-oil-bailout/

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help?

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach.

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.

  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me.
