so can the Trump admin force the CDC to falsify the stats on infection and death rates? I mean yes it would be an incredible scandal but legally can they order that to happen?

I think there's obviously something up with the CDC beyond decreased funding that has led to them being fuck-ups during coronavirus. I mean as in Trump not allowing them to do stuff the CDC would normally do

Pres Bone Spurs seems to be having a meltdown for the ages with those internal polls. Yet CNN had a poll yesterday showing Biden only leading by 5 nationally and down 52-45 in battleground states. That run contrary to what we know the internal (more accurate) polls showed.

There will have to be action taken on those who have flagrantly participated in criminality and deception. The risk is the GOP will attempt to do something similar when they regain power in the future without any criminality committed by the previous administration. However, this cannot be overlooked.

I cannot think of a worse idea. Schools will have hundreds to thousands of people in one place. Whether or not this virus truly affects the young (and it is an open debate), they are carriers. They will bring it back to their homes and all the places they visit. What about teachers? What happens when a teacher gets COVID-19? What happens when a student does? What happens when no substitutes show up?

I do not have kids so I dont know what people usually do with their kids, but my parents shipped me off to summer camp and my grandparents when I was younger. I spent most of my summers alone at home with my friends when I was older and since I was raised in a pre-helicopter parents era.

Not sure what parents will do this year since neither summer camp or grandparents are an option, but I'm sure our genius leader already has a plan for this. Maybe keep them all in summer school so parents can save his precious economy.

Lindsey tells Trump "no".

Not what immediately comes to mind, though.

It is Graham refusing to call Obama to testify. Lindsey has been on Fox daily, including last night and this morning, raging against Obama, McCabe, Comey, etc. in the Flynn and Carter Page cases.

Now Lindsey has backed himself into a corner with Trump's base. Lindsey, though he won't admit it to the public, knows the whole endeavor on such claims lacks credible substance. If he calls Obama to testify, he'll get immense pushback, even from a few Republicans on the Judiciary Committee that know such a tactic will backfire politically, particularly with an uncontrolled pandemic happening.

Burr played the Trump loyalist side, going so far as sharing intel documents with the WH during the investigation. He should have resigned/been removed from the committee when the behavior got exposed. As Chair of the Senate Committee, he would work with Warner and Democrats to try and make the committee appear functional and cooperative. Any serious infighting was kept off-camera.

Barr knows the Trump mess extensively, yet he voted against removing Trump from office after impeachment. He already had decided not to run for re-election.

There is no way in hell Americans are going to get any monthly money.

R5, this is on Trump, not the CDC. Trump has fired 70% of the CDC since he took office. He fired key personnel hired by Obama. He did not restaff. He also told the CDC to NOT offer official guidelines to fight the virus, demoted one of the first directors to sound the alarm and then made them rewrite all meat plant protocols for all individual companies, depending on where these companies were. If the company was in a GOP, red state, he ordered them to stay open with assistance from the governor of the state, and made no mandates for employee safety. ZERO. No masks required, nothing, no testing, zilch, even though everyone knew workers were getting sick, hospitalized and dying. The CDC was able to give and implement stricter environmental safety in Democratic Party rules states, or states that have governors who are GOP, and said no to the unsafe practices at the meat packing plants.

Those states are now being heavily pressured to reopen and Wisconsin is one of those states. All Trump and the Chinese who own the companies.

The CDC is currently powerless. Let’s not blame this on them. He will not allow them to work because the entire administration will not allow them to because they have so poorly mismanaged our economy and fed, that we are currently doing whatever the Chinese demand, no matter what bullshit you hear on the news.

Also, Trump owes the Chinese lots of money, personally, and his son in law has a HUGE real estate deal with the Chinese in New Jersey, and so does DJT along with his kids, Ivanka, and Jared in Manhattan.

This was the same Peter Hegseth who alleged on air on 28 February that Democrats were “rooting” for the infection. “They have yet to find a reason to drag down the presidency of Donald Trump,” he said. Sean Hannity, one of Fox’s most famous names and a close ally of Trump similarly told viewers, “If you are over the mass hysteria, if you're over politicizing and weaponizing the coronavirus, you are not alone.” With only one exception – the extreme right-wing host Tucker Carlson – Fox News repeated the line that COVID-19 was nothing to worry about, no more dangerous than the flu, or “a hoax” that was being used to “bludgeon Trump”, in Hannity’s words.

I have abided by the stay-at-home guidelines consistently. I went three or four times to the supermarket for groceries, pet food, etc. I wear the mask, do the social distancing, etc.

I'm in a southern, suburban area. I ventured out today to Lowe's to buy a needed plumbing part and a few other basic home items like cleanser for hardwood floors. I was shocked at crowd. The parking lot was filled, nondisabled shoppers filling disability parking spots, masked and unmasked families shopping, some people with masks wearing them below their noses, older men and others not practicing social distancing and no masks, etc.

Obviously there is stupidity and selfish, don't care attitudes. Apparently, shopping is the happy outing for overcoming boredom, even if many are simply looking and buying little outside the usual items to hoard. Many of these people watch Fox News which has been pushing reopening and downplaying risks, and giving voice that all this is little more than the routine flu. Let them go back to work if they work. Most are defying quarantine-type rules anyway. 200,000+ U.S. deaths from the coronavirus will probably happen by late summer.

Trump and cohorts have decided to go full speed ahead with reopening businesses and economic activity, and that infections and deaths are basically collateral costs.

[quote]McConnell had some of the traits that would help. He was he has tremendous focus, great ambition, not a lot of charisma. But he was very good at also forming connections with important people. And, and quite early on, he had his eye on money and money has really been sort of the subplot of his life and his career. At one point, I have an anecdote in the story where people who knew back in Louisville, where he was starting up his career, describe how after he shed his first wife, he stopped by for dinner. And he said, you know, what he wanted to do next was find a really wealthy woman to marry. And he did. He's married into an incredibly wealthy family of originally Chinese shippers who have a maritime shipping company. It's based in New York and the Chinese family became Americans. They're American citizens now, but the connections with China run very deep in his family, and he and his wife were given something like $25 million by the family. So that's helpful. And then he's cultivated relationships with really rich donors. There are not that many of them in Kentucky. So he's also moved outside the state to cultivate relationships with some of the most powerful players and richest people in America who back him.

On McConnell's wife, Elaine Chao.

[quote]An important factor because it sort of explains in a way the McConnell-Trump relationship, which you write is not anything like a warm relationship. And apparently, according to people you spoke with, McConnell doesn't think much of Trump's intellect, yet they obviously have some common interests. Right?

[quote]Yeah, it's a very political arrangement they've got that’s mutually beneficial. At least it has been up to this point. And what it is, is that people around McConnell told me that behind Trump's back, he has described Trump as nuts and said that he thinks he's smarter than Trump and he's likened Trump to some of his least favorite politicians. Really, particularly Roy Moore. And so he speaks contemptuously of him behind his back. But he realizes Trump's the secret to getting support from voters who he needs himself in his own state.

[quote]McConnell's actually, surprisingly, quite unpopular in his own state. And his state loves Trump and kind of tolerates McConnell. So he needs to stick with Trump in order to get reelected. And the same situation holds true for a number of people in the Republican members of this Senate who need to get reelected in order to keep the majority in the Senate and keep Mitch McConnell as majority leader in the Senate. So it works for him to keep supporting Trump and Trump meanwhile, has done some tremendous favors for McConnell. Most importantly, backing this tax cut bill that is exactly what the big donors that McConnell is backed by want. The 2017 tax cut bill, really, really was a gift to the richest people in the country, many of whom back McConnell. So there was kind of a nice little back-scratching deal there.

As many of you know, I attended the University of Pennsylvania with Donald Trump Jr. I feel compelled to share this story before the election, in the hopes that it will shed a bit of light on the kind of person that Donald Trump is, and the kind of son that he raised.

I was hanging out in a freshman dorm with some friends, next door to Donald Jr.'s room. I walked out of the room to find Donald Trump at his son's door, there to pick him up for a baseball game. There were quite a few students standing around watching, trying to catch a glimpse of the famed real estate magnate. Don Jr. opened the door, wearing a Yankee jersey. Without saying a word, his father slapped him across the face, knocking him to the floor in front of all of his classmates. He simply said "put on a suit and meet me outside," and closed the door.

Donald Jr. was a drunk in college. Every memory I have of him is of him stumbling around campus falling over or passing out in public, with his arm in a sling from injuring himself while drinking. He absolutely despised his father, and hated the attention that his last name afforded him. His nickname was "Diaper Don," because of his tendency to fall asleep drunk in other people's beds and urinate. I always felt terrible for him.

I am voting for Hillary Clinton for a number of reasons, her opponent notwithstanding. However, in light of what I saw that day, it is clear to me that Donald Trump lacks the temperament and basic social decency to run our country.

Four years ago, Trump bested Hillary Clinton by 13 points, 55 percent to 42, with voters age 65 years and older. But now Biden narrowly leads Trump 48 percent to 47 percent, based on an average of 48 national polls that included that age group. If those figures hold until November, they would represent a seismic shift in the voting behavior of America’s oldest voters.

You can't hide dead people. Plus most of them have family and friends and neighbors or hospital staffers who cared for them. It may take a bit longer, but we will definitely know the numbers. And a lot sooner than that grotesque piece of shit expects. I think everyone who has had a family member die from Covid or covid related illnesses, ought to wear some thing like a black armband or some kind of lapel ribbon.

Deplorables say she mentioned "by the book" 3 times so they must all be criminals and held accountable. But for what exactly?

I did not really follow this since I thought it was just a way to distract from his Covid-19 handling and the IG firing.

The Obama administration thought Flynn was shady because of his multiple Russia/Turkey connections and was "monitoring" him and careful to share sensitive information with him. Obama even warned Dump not to hire Flynn, but he ignored him. Later Dump himself fired him and Flynn pleaded guilty 2 times. So Obama basically thought Flynn was a national security risk and trying to protect our interests, but Dump somehow now thinks they were spying on him while he hired the traitor and ignored Obama's warnings.

From what I can tell, the Republicans are going to focus their attacks on things that Obama's DOJ was involved with - there are some legitimate questions buried underneath all of the bullshit. The central theme will be that Obama's DOJ was targeting popular republicans, essentially politicizing the office. Barr presumably put the plan together - I would expect them to go after Holden in particular, and then they would start the meme, What did Obama know and when did he know it. But Trump is incapable of articulating - or even understanding - the legal issues. So like a child, he just parrots the word Obamagate. Basically, Trump is fucking up Barr's plan by jumping the gun and making grand pronouncements that he can't back up. Barr must want to strangle him.

As for the unmasking - yes, it's a nothing-burger. But Barr is going to put everything in the hopper - legitimate issues and bullshit issues, so it will all be mixed together. The voting public doesn't have the time or energy to pull the strands apart. The ultimate goal is to gin up the base with anger at Obama, to turn them out in November.... and to further disillusion independents, to believe that both sides are the same, so why bother voting. Fox viewers aren't going to be told that the unmasking was done legitimately - all they will take away is that Trump was a target.

Allow the experts to answer all medical and supply questions. He could have been a facilitator, not showcasing himself in contentious and incompetent ways. However, he cannot accept a situation whereby he's not the center of attention and perceiving the TV viewers as his base, rally attendees.

R320 concur. I can't see the U.S. Supreme Court interfering in an individual state's methodology for voting. Of course they injected themselves into the Florida 2000 recount.

In the past, feds have gotten involved in discrimination practices, i.e. poll taxes, literacy tests, selective extractions from voter rolls, disability accessibility, etc.

Mail-in voting is not discrimination unless a chosen segment of eligible voters are denied access to mail-in ballots.

Every voter registration card has an ID #, at least in most states. I voted by mail prior, and actually had to supply more information, including the ID#, than what the polling site requires; which in my state is a check-off of the signature applicable for the voting precinct. Mail-in voting could actually improve verification if forms are completed correctly.

WASHTENAW COUNTY, MI — The chairman of Washtenaw County’s Board of Commissioners has sent a letter to President Donald Trump asking him to cancel his Thursday visit to the county.

In his letter, Jason Morgan said he’s concerned Trump’s May 20 visit will put Washtenaw County residents at risk for further exposure to COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

“I respect the Office of the President and generally welcome the opportunity for you to learn about the needs of our community; however, I firmly believe that your recent inaccurate statements and actions cause greater uncertainty, division and harm to our residents,” Morgan’s letter states.

WASHTENAW COUNTY, MI — The chairman of Washtenaw County’s Board of Commissioners has sent a letter to President Donald Trump asking him to cancel his Thursday visit to the county.

In his letter, Jason Morgan said he’s concerned Trump’s May 20 visit will put Washtenaw County residents at risk for further exposure to COVID-19, the illness caused by the novel coronavirus.

Trump is set to visit the Ford Motor Company’s Rawsonville manufacturing plan in Ypsilanti Township on Thursday. The factory has shifted its efforts to produce ventilators and personal protective equipment to help in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak.

Intel Agencies Hiring Consultants to Learn How to Keep Trump's Attention

NYT: Mr. Trump, who has mounted a yearslong attack on the intelligence agencies, is particularly difficult to brief on critical national security matters. The president veers off on tangents and getting him back on topic is difficult. He has a short attention span and rarely, if ever, reads intelligence reports, relying instead on conservative media and his friends for information.

He is unashamed to interrupt intelligence officers and riff based on tips or gossip he hears from the former casino magnate Steve Wynn, the retired golfer Gary Player or Christopher Ruddy, the conservative media executive. Mr. Trump rarely absorbs information that he disagrees with or that runs counter to his worldview. Briefing him has been so great a challenge compared with his predecessors that the intelligence agencies have hired outside consultants to study how better to present information to him.

One thing we all have to remember. THis is a numbers game. The winner has to cobble together enough sub groups to make 51% and win the Electoral College majority.

So let's say Trump is at 43%. He needs to find that other 7.5-8% to win. If he can suppress the votes of certain sub categories, and pick off a few, as in a few Blacks, a few latinos, and women, he may be able to cobble together enough then let the Russians steal the WH again. He just needs to get close.

So who ever Biden chooses for his V P is going to have opposition. If they're Black like Harris they'll go after her record as prosecutor. Susan Rice? Benghazi and unmasking and FISA. If it's Warren or Klobuchar they will do the litmus test on how terrible they were to minorities or their voting record, or WTF ever. No one will be a 'safe pick." You can already see what they're doing to Whitmer.

Their plan is to suppress the vote, to lie cheat steal divide and distort. We know this. We cannot allow it to affect turnout. So make sure you are sending that message everywhere. Please God, we have to get him out of office and we have to take the Senate and hold the House. And down ballot we have to take over the state legislatures and state courts and governors. Because in 2021, legislative redistricting will take place.

Chuck Todd is a essentially a not-so-closeted Republican who portrays himself as a pensive journalist at both-siderism? Obviously, he doesn't have a journalism degree or any degree. He is always trying to rationalize Trump's behavior and fawns over Trump cohorts when they appear on his show. Then he is condescending with Democrats, particularly those of color.

A good journalist can ask direct, but not accusatory, questions of both Democrats and Republicans and press for straight answers if needed. He's terrible at follow-ups with Republicans.

Symone was prepared for Chucky and she made it known.

I thought the NBC corporation was replacing Todd as the MTP anchor? I switch to CNN or something else when he appears.

The Trump administration can use coercion to get the CDC to alter anything they want altered. It would take a whistleblower or some high up person publicly resigning to blow it open. We can assume that coercion is being used as the main weapon in Trump's political arsenal. Funding and cooperation and a lot of other goodies would be withheld. People like Inspectors general etc. would be fired. There are so many ways to get the result he desires. It's that "Quid pro quo" Adam Schiff talked about, and it's very much the way Trump deals with people. He's a shake down artist and a grifter.

Biden made a gaffer, in a rather spontaneous joking context, that was not mean-spirited and not as alarming as it sounded on surface. He promptly apologized.

The hypocritical Republicans and the media acted hysterical about it.

Yet, Trump implies a news anchor committed homicide, attacks the Speaker of House's teeth, eyebrows, age, etc., calls HRC a skank, and insults Stacey Abrams about her weight. Only a very few Republican politicians conveyed disapproval. The media mentions it, but gives him a very low bar.

The media milked the unsubstantiated Tara Reid claims as much as they could; but has moved-on from all the sexual and pussy grabbing scandals of Trump. The Epstein connection and a related lawsuit from an alleged victim isn't further discussed. For Biden they were looking for a disqualifier or a frenzy. For Trump, the media treated it as sensational gossip, and if he did such, "that's just Trump", the great wheeler-dealer that provides enhanced ratings.

In April, Bailey filed suit in a Southern Illinois state court, asserting that the stay-at-home order Governor Jay Pritzker imposed in accordance with the president’s then operative “Coronavirus Guidelines for America” (which began “Listen to and follow the guidelines of your STATE AND LOCAL Authorities”) violated his “liberty” rights.

Ann Coulter apparently is not a fan of Ivanka and Jared, and critically claims Trump will not fulfill campaign promises if re-elected.

In an article in the right-leaning National Examiner, it was stated that "Ann Coulter predicts Trump will promote 'Ivanka and Jared's business interests' if reelected."

[quote]"I figure one way or another, we may only have — well at this point, what is it, 5 months left? — to get any of these promises fulfilled," she began. "He didn't care much about his promises when he was facing reelection. How much do you think he's going to care when he's not facing reelection? I mean at that point, it's just going to be pedal to the metal promoting Ivanka and Jared's business interests."

*

Trump posted messages on Facebook and Twitter this week that called mail-in ballots "fraudulent" and threatened to bring in the National Guard to control protests in Minneapolis, saying "when the looting starts, the shooting starts." Twitter slapped a warning label on the tweet about mail-in voting, as well as a public interest notice on the tweet about the Minneapolis protests for violating its rules regrading glorifying violence.

Facebook left both of Trump's posts up on its platform. Zuckerberg told CNBC on Thursday he doesn't think social networks should be "arbiters of truth," arguing that people "should be able to see what politicians say." In a post on Friday, Zuckerberg said the posts about the Minnesota protests don't violate Facebook's policies.

And what is Trump's senior staff member, Kellyanne Conway, re-tweeting about instead? LAME KATHY GRIFFIN JOKES. And they want the the SS to go after lwhat they call "sick" Kathy Griffin?

That tired old skank Kellyanne "Alternate Facts" Conway should keep her mouth shut. She has zero credibility.

[quote]Netanyahu talks annexation with Kushner; US said to want to ‘slow the process’

[quote]Netanyahu has vowed to unilaterally annex some 30 percent of the West Bank — covering all the settlements and the Jordan Valley — and reportedly told Likud MKs last week, “We have a target date in July to apply sovereignty and we will not change it.”

There is lot going on while the media is distracted.

Whose watching Kushner's dealings? Trump???

Where are the protests against this nasty thing?

[quote]“Bill Barr is a liar”: Trump AG floats new mail-vote conspiracy experts say “couldn’t happen” After casting doubt on Russian interference, Barr is “worried” that foreign actors might print counterfeit ballots.

Barr is trying to set-up a Trump-Kushner family dictatorship and Congress refuses to formally denounce this turd's behavior; and the spineless courts' timetable would take another century to address it when they'll be non-existent.

What state could possibly want to host the repuke convention. Demonstrations, likely violent, guaranteed, virus restrictions ignored, a whole bunch of assholes in your city, and an orange shit stain stinking up the place. Not.worth.it.

Trump certainly does unwaveringly believe in a higher authority and a righteous supreme being that guides all his decision. That figure is Vladimir Putin.
