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

EXCERPT...

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

EXCERPT...

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.


SNIP...

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.
