We had a plan. Dump did the opposite.

At every turn, he not only did the wrong thing, he has elected to do the worst thing possible. Take having no plan to deal with the outbreak since he first heard about it.

How many needless Covid-19 deaths were caused by delays in responding?

Most of them

StatNews, JUNE 19, 202


To compare each country’s responses to the pandemic on a consistent basis, we turned to the work of an Oxford University team that has constructed a stringency index based on 13 policy responses (lockdowns, border closings, tests, etc.) to measure how strongly each country responded over time. The Oxford index shows that 14 days from the date of the 15th confirmed case in each country — a vital early window for action — the U.S. response to the outbreak lagged behind the others by miles. The U.S. stringency score of 5.7 at that point was 25% of Australia’s (23), 23% of Germany’s (25), 18% of Singapore’s (32), and only 15% of South Korea’s (38).

Due to exponential viral spread, our delay in action was devastating. In the wake of the U.S. response, 117,858 Americans died in the four months following the first 15 confirmed cases. After an equivalent period, Germany suffered only 8,863 casualties. Scaling up the German population of 83.7 million to America’s 331 million, a U.S.-sized Germany would have suffered 35,049 Covid-19 deaths. So if the U.S. had acted as effectively as Germany, 70% of U.S. coronavirus deaths might have been prevented.



Precisely as you noted, crickets: Not incompetence, it is intentional — and it is global.

Thanks, Putin.


Jared Kushner relative says he solicited coronavirus tips for him on Facebook

‘I was asked by Jared through my son-in-law for recommendations;’ says Kurt Kloss, whose daughter is married to Kushner’s brother; Kushner is ‘directly involved’ in virus response

Times of Israel, March 13, 2020

JTA — A physician with family ties to senior White House adviser Jared Kushner said he solicited advice on Facebook for Kushner on how to deal with the coronavirus.

Kurt Kloss, whose daughter is married to Kushner’s brother, on Wednesday asked a group of fellow emergency room physicians on the social network for the advice on Kushner’s behalf, Politico reported Friday, in turn quoting The Spectator.

“I have direct channel to person now in charge at White House,” Kloss wrote in his post.

Hundreds of doctors responded and Kloss explained that Kushner, who is US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, had asked him for recommendations, according to Politico. Kloss sent Kushner 12 recommendations Thursday morning, according to the article.



Trump and Kushner must be prosecuted for crimes against humanity

There is no word to describe Trump and Jared’s murderous criminality. Their willfull actions have resulted in the deaths of more than 150,000 US citizens they swore to protect.

Trump and Kushner must be prosecuted for crimes against humanity

Written by David Atkins / Washington Monthly August 1, 2020 Commentary


But the latest report from Vanity Fair implicates both Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner of an unspeakable horror orders of magnitude greater. Instead of implementing a comprehensive and aggressive national testing plan the pandemic team originally recommended, Kushner scuttled it. The president and his son-in-law were instead content to allow tens of thousands of Americans die as long as they were mostly people of color, and hailing from Democratic states and counties. Not only that, they saw it as a political opportunity to both cull the numbers of opposing voters and lay blame on Democratic governors at the same time:

Against that background, the prospect of launching a large-scale national plan was losing favor, said one public health expert in frequent contact with the White House’s official coronavirus task force.

Most troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner’s team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. “The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy,” said the expert.

That logic may have swayed Kushner. “It was very clear that Jared was ultimately the decision maker as to what [plan] was going to come out,” the expert said.


We even lack the vocabulary to even describe it. “Gross negligence” doesn’t reach the level of the crime. “Murder” is lurid, but frankly not a comprehensive enough word to describe the death of 140,000. “Treason” comes to mind when considering that the President of the United States knowingly allowed 140,000 Americans to die because they were mostly his political opponents–but despite his Russia entanglements, there is no direct evidence he did so on behalf of a foreign power.



The US needs to reckon with these two mass murdering traitors, immediately. Otherwise, until Jan. 20, 2021 they will have enormous power at their disposal to avoid that reckoning.

"He's insane." -- Gov. Gina Raimondo

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Gov. Gina Raimondo said President Donald Trump’s tweet suggesting the country delay the elections is “insane,” adding “he’s losing his mind.”


Trump's Plague

Spread by dimwits and fascists.

Amazing what belief can do.

It’s why the race to be the first to lie. It makes it harder for the truth to take hold.

Here’s missing context needed for this story and America’s press corpse.

Thus sprach Rupertscheisskopf.

Fox pops up on America’s Google feed and the tv screen.


And that part of the People believe what they think they know they’ve learned, the news.

With Ghislaine, Jeffrey Epstein’s accomplice or handler. The media mogul families go way back. Ask Bill Barr.


Maxwell and Murdoch. Rivals like. Never in context.


Umbrella Man: Minneapolis suspect linked to white supremacists

He wrecked the Auto Zone. That pisses me off.

Source: BBC

Police in Minneapolis say a man known as "Umbrella Man", seen damaging property in the city during the Black Lives Matter protests, has links to white supremacy groups.

People took to the city's streets following the death there in May of George Floyd, an unarmed black man.

Police say Umbrella Man helped turn the largely peaceful protests violent.

Footage of the man wearing a mask and carrying an umbrella while smashing shop windows went viral online.

In the video, taken on 27 May, Umbrella Man can be seen breaking the windows with a hammer as people approach him trying to get him to stop. He then walks away from the scene.

He’s a real shitheel, good only for tossing in the Ash Heap o’ History.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez accuses Texas Republican of joining in on harassment


Williams says he didn't hear the exchange, which was overheard and reported on by a reporter from The Hill. But Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter that Williams is merely pretending not to have heard it and that he actually joined in the argument, yelling at her about "throwing urine." During the argument, another Republican member of congress called Ocasio-Cortez a "fucking bitch," The Hill reported.

"Gotta love Republican courage from Rep @RogerWilliamsTX: when he undeniably sees another man engaged in virulent harassment of a young woman, just pretend you never saw it in the most cartoonish manner possible and keep pushing," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted.

2016 House Ethics Review[edit]

On May 3, 2016, the House Ethics Committee initiated an investigation into Williams after he inserted a provision into a $300 billion transportation funding bill called the Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act that exempted some car dealerships like his own from a proposal to prevent rental car companies from renting out vehicles that were subject to safety recalls.[16] The legislation was spurred by the deaths of Raechel and Jacqueline Houck, ages 24 and 20.[17] The two sisters were killed in 2004 while driving a rented, recalled vehicle that caught fire and crashed head-on into a semi.[18] The investigation's focus was a provision Williams authored in the bill that would have exempted dealerships like his own and allowed renting vehicles under active safety recall.[19][20][21] The independent nonpartisan Office of Congressional Ethics found that Williams violated House ethics rules, noting that Williams refused to cooperate; by unanimous, bipartisan vote the OCE found that “there is substantial reason to believe that Rep. Williams’ personal financial interest in his auto dealership may be perceived as having influenced his performance of official duties – namely, his decision to offer an amendment to the surface transportation legislation.”[22] The House Ethics committee determined that the amendment "could have affected Representative Williams’ personal financial interests", but decided to end the investigation and took no further action.[23][24]


COVID-19 Paycheck Protection Program Controversy[edit]

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dallas Morning News reported that Roger Williams Chrysler Dodge Jeep dealership in Weatherford, Texas received an unspecified amount in federally backed small business loans as part of the Paycheck Protection Program. Williams' office acknowledged that he had accepted forgivable taxpayer-funded loans through the Paycheck Protection Program a few days later but would not disclose the amount.[27] In Texas the Killeen Daily Herald, Austin American-Statesman, and Fort Worth Star-Telegram published stories on the incident, with national news outlets reporting as well.[28][27][29][2]

The move prompted Rep. Katie Porter to introduce legislation that would require all loans under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to be made public and stated "If you’re a multimillionaire taking taxpayer money in the middle of the biggest unemployment since the Great Depression, get ready to explain that decision to the American people."[30][31] Washington Post highlighted March 2020 comments from Williams in Epoch Times, where he stated "A socialist wants you to get a check from the government... a capitalist wants you to get a check from the place that you work."[32]

Rep. Williams then drew further public scrutiny for voting against the TRUTH Act (H.R. 6782), a bipartisan bill which would have required public disclosure of companies that received funds through the bailout program.[33][34][35][36]
