  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
  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
  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.
  4. Right wing defunding of necessary departments that is causing the controversy aka back door deregulation. Also incompetent appointments have made agencies unable to respond. What makes Kushner competent??? There are sources for treatment as this virus is not necessarily new: Coronavirus VII: We Are Ready and You Can Be Ready Too!
  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 & Je

  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 b

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

  17. In addition to the issues that arise from having a completely inept president whose brain matter seems to consist of Tiddlywinks and empty Coke cans, one of the biggest factors that allowed the coronavirus to gain a foothold in the United States was the failure to provide adequate testing in a timely fashion. “The incompetence has really exceeded what anyone would expect with the CDC,” Michael Mina, an epidemiologist at Harvard told the New York Times earlier this month. People exhibiting symptoms of the virus have been turned away for testing due to federal guidelines

  20. On Wednesday, the World Health Organization designated the coronavirus a pandemic, meaning that the disease is now considered to have spread worldwide. But pandemics also confer extraordinary privileges on US authorities. Last night, Trump announced a ban the next 30 days on travelers flying from Europe to the United States. And an internal CBP pandemic response plan obtained by The Nation outlines the immigration and border agency’s ability to actively surveil and detain individuals suspected of carrying the illness. Titled “Operations Plan for Pandemic Response” and marked for official
  21. Imagine you’re headed back home to the United States after spending spring break in Mexico. You’re in line at customs at the airport; you feel queasy, but you can’t tell if it’s a hangover or the chorizo you bought from a street vendor. You sweat and groan as you clutch your stomach in pain and, to your surprise, a customs agent who was apparently watching you approaches and asks if you’ve had any flu-like symptoms. You confirm that you’ve had some, but before you can explain that it could just be from the bad food, he tells you that you’re going to need to be screened
  22. Trump’s Coronavirus Response Is Going to Get Someone Hurt In the absence of any real plans to stem the virus, Trump is turning to the kind of “us vs. them” rhetoric that can only lead to violence. https://www.thenation.com/article/world/coronavirus-america-first/
