tRrump dismantled NSC pandemic Unit -- I told this to a MAGAt -- the Response:

The MAGAt's reply was, in essence, that tRump did not do this, but transferred the unit elsewhere. Never found out where the unit was allegedly transferred.

Anyone have any info on this? First time I heard this MAGAt claim. IMO, it is as with most tRump supporters a bunch of BS from Faux Snooze.

Price-gouging: LA (Los Angeles) officials crack down amid coronavirus pandemic

City Attorney Mike Feuer told Eyewitness News his office is checking online sellers and visiting stores to make sure they don't raise prices on high-demand items like hand sanitizer and bleach.


"No retailer, no seller can sell a good, service, medical supplies and so forth for more than 10% more than they sold the item before the emergency," Feuer said via a Skype interview.

"We're seeing numbers much higher than that."

For example, he said, his office staff found and purchased two 1-liter containers of hand sanitizer for $140 and eight half-gallons of bleach for $100.

Sellers who violate the law can face a range of criminal and civil penalties, including a year in jail, a $10,000 fine and restitution to consumers.


Good. The hoarding and price gouging conduct by some is way out of line.

Question for other Californians on the Newsom Order

I am self-employed and left my office at 3:00 p.m. yesterday. I have been primarily working at home -- legal work such as discovery which can be served by email with agreement.

Now, my question: I thought I read that a business (other than those deemed essential) has between 10:00 a.m and 6:00 p.m. today (March 20) to shut down and may go in once a week thereafter for a limited time.

Am I dreaming...or does anyone else have any info? TIA

Coronavirus prompts CA courts to close, delay trials

California courts are delaying trials and even temporarily closing their doors in hopes of preventing the spread of the new coronavirus, moves intended to balance public safety with due process that could leave some cases in limbo for weeks.

The Contra Costa County Superior Court is closing until at least April 1. Superior Court in Orange County will not start new civil trials until at least May 1. The Supreme Court of California has suspended in-person oral arguments — instead, lawyers will appear remotely, through video, telephone or other electronic means.

In Los Angeles, a judge postponed the murder trial of multimillionaire New York real estate heir Robert Durst until April 6. Superior Court in Los Angeles is delaying certain trials, and on Monday announced it would shut down through Thursday “in response to the substantial need to control and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.”

The court will reopen Friday for handling essential or emergency matters.


I have been in communication with many Los Angeles law offices which are opposing counsel in cases in my office. It's a mess out there and some of the soonest continence dates for pending civil trials which start at the end of March or during this April are now in October 2020. Criminal cases and family law cases with child custody have preference over general civil matters.

How is the Coronavirus hitting your home, workplace, office or school?

My law office is a staff of 4 people. Two of the four are over 70 (I am one of the two) and a third person is nearly 70. The fourth person is is in her early 40s and has two young children. We are in LA County and the schools are closed starting next Monday and she is at home with her grade school youngsters getting the the home schooling program in place.

This is scary as hell. We have legal deadlines that are just sitting there and not being worked on. I am wondering if the Superior Courts in California are going to close. The only good thing? The 405 is the emptiest I have seen it at commuter rush hours in years!!!!

What a mess...oh, btw: FUCK TRUMP.

Romney could derail Republican subpoena targeting Bidens

Sub-headline: The Utah Republican is concerned the push appears intended to undermine a Trump rival.

A Republican effort to subpoena records about Joe Biden and his son Hunter could be derailed amid concerns from at least one GOP senator that the push appears politically motivated.

The Senate Homeland Security Committee is set to vote next Wednesday on a subpoena for records from a Democratic public relations firm related to the panel’s investigation of conflict-of-interest allegations against the Bidens.

But Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), a member of the panel, has hinted that he could vote against issuing the subpoena, noting the committee’s investigation might look political in nature given Biden’s resurgence and the increasing likelihood that he’ll become the Democratic presidential nominee.

“There’s no question the appearance is not good,” Romney told reporters, adding that he is still “considering” his vote.


On this Senate committee, the Repukes hold a slim margin -- 8 to 6 in favor of the Repukes. If Romney sides with the Dems, a 7 - 7 tie means that the subpeona would not be issued by that committee. Romney made his objects known after MF 45 announced on Faux Snooze that the purpose of doing this was to use the information against Biden if he became the Dem nominee.
