Texas is hiding negative test numbers (hiding data)

Yet another state has begun hiding crucial data for the re-opening process:
DSHS recently informed county health departments that NEDSS will no longer share negative test results, so that county health departments can focus on managing positive cases. As a result, the quantity of negative test results will decrease substantially.


I don't know if this has been widely reported yet... Just a nugget picked from the local paper daily Covid-19 report.

We need a commitment from Biden to appoint a Special Prosecutor to investigate Trump and his Admin

The total disregard for the rule of law needs to be addressed and their needs to be a thorough investigation of the criminal activities known and unknown at this point.

Ordinarily, I would say this is a bad idea, but these are extraordinary times.

5 Children Test Positive in Putnam County, FL on one day


A 6-year-old boy from East Palatka was among nine new cases of COVID-19 reported Sunday in Putnam County, the state Department of Health said...The nine new cases reported Sunday included three 10-year-old girls from East Palatka and an 8-year-old girl from East Palatka, according to the Department of Health. The cases were not travel related, the agency said...

This is where I grew up... When I think of that moron deSantis, I have no words.

Technology Can Help Get Us Through This

However, it's going to seem a bit creepy at first...

First is an approach being used in several Asian countries:
Our cellphones and smartphones have several means of logging our activity. GPS tracks our location, and Bluetooth exchanges signals with nearby devices. In its most basic form, cellphone tracing might go like this: If someone tests positive for COVID-19, health officials could obtain a record of that person’s cellphone activity and compare it with the data emitted by other phone owners. If officials saw any GPS overlaps (e.g., data showing that I went to a McDonald’s hot spot) or Bluetooth hits (e.g., data showing that I came within several feet of a new patient), they could contact me and urge me to self-isolate, or seek a test.

The UAE took it one step further. They use phone tracing for cases. However, they also instituted digital passes to leave home. In real time, they can literally control crowding even with vital services.
No digital pass, you are arrested and fined if you are outside your home.


Proud of our Judge in Dallas for Smacking Hobby Lobby

Judges are in control of emergency management under the Governor here in TX and Clay Jenkins has been a star


On Thursday, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins announced he will soon issue a Cease & Desist order to the Hobby Lobby Corporation.

“Someone who is not a hero and who I want to call out specifically, and I’ll be calling out others like this… is the corporation Hobby Lobby,” said Jenkins.

He did just a short while later and it was glorious watching the police tape the order letter to the door!!!

Dallas Going on Full Lock-Down (probable 90 days)

Our officials are not sugar coating it...

Live City of Dallas update ca. 5:45PM

Kenny Rogers has passed away


Vocalist Kenny Rogers, who dominated the pop and country charts in the 1970s and 1980s with a string of sleekly tailored hits and won three Grammys, has died. He was 81. Rogers “passed away peacefully at home from natural causes under the care of hospice and surrounded by his family,” a representative for the singer said in a statement. Due to the national COVID-19 emergency, the family is planning a small private service at this time with a public memorial planned for a later date.

More Incompetence: they were Screening No International Travellers Yesterday

I had friends coming into DFW via Qatar and they found a huge # of people and an almost 6hr wait standing in line.

The real kick though. There was 0 screening or testing going on. 0, none.

The reports are an absolute lie by the government.

The importance of the virus is in the exit polling

But the pundits are still jabbering about horse race...

When 3/4 of people are majorly concerned about the virus over anything else, Maslow's hierarchy of needs kicks in and any narrative about ideology is going to fall flat even it were 100% correct.

Biden's association with Obama's ability to manage crises, in that scenario, makes him the comfort food candidate.

And unless there is another radical shift that is unforseen Biden will win the nomination outright.

It was all over early last week when the first cases hit.

3/4 Voters Cited the importance of Corona Virus in Exit Polls

In all the discussion, I think almost everyone missed the 500lb gorilla in the room because the media has been too focused on the horse race.

It's clear the the virus completely shifted the playing field pre-SC and tipped in a way that majorly enhanced Biden's chances.
