Is Trump not funding contact tracing and testing so americans will

not know the details of COVID when it spreads again? Think of all the stories like this one there will be if there was adequate testing and contact tracing: https://www.democraticunderground.com/100213312156

It would show businesses or groups who open before the health authorities say it is safe are guilty of certain deaths in some cases. There would be direct relationships. And you can't blame that on China.

He went with ginning up his base in ways that could kill and

innocents with COVID-19 with his Liberate tweets. That is the point. It is not a well thought through strategy to liberate people from liviing as Trump was doing with his liberate campaign, also to bankrupt Liberal governors which would directly attack the obama-obama-trump voters and their wellbeing. I think labelling Biden as pro communist is just reusing the anti socialist campaign they had planned to run against Bernie. They got nothing. I wonder if not enabling testing is so there will be no narrative of who and when COVID-19 spreads when it spreads again because contact tracing will tell a detailed story if it had the funding.

Trumpists Urge Defiance of Social Distancing Rules

Trumpists Urge Defiance of Social Distancing Rules

“A protest movement is taking hold targeting states that have extended social-distancing rules, closed schools and restricted access to large religious gatherings. And it’s being fed by loyalists and political allies of President Trump,” the Daily Beast reports.

“The tension has prompted Republican lawmakers and supporters of the president to publicly call for Americans to defy their local orders, claiming they infringe on constitutional rights.”

Detroit News: “Hundreds of demonstrators lined the streets around the Michigan Capitol Wednesday for a rally to protest Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s stay-at-home order, which aims to protect public health during the coronavirus pandemic.”


Darwin award members. Unfortunately they'll take the vulnerable population of Detroit with them.

Governors Take Control of When to Reopen

Governors Take Control of When to Reopen

“States on the country’s East and West coasts are forming their own regional pacts to work together on how to reopen from the stay-at-home orders each has issued to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus,” CNN reports.

“The first such group to be announced came Monday on the East Coast. Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said his state, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Rhode Island each plan to name a public health and economic official to a regional working group. The chief of staff of the governor of each state also will be a part of the group, which will begin work immediately to design a reopening plan.”

“Later on Monday, the West Coast states of California, Washington and Oregon also announced they are joining forces in a plan to begin incremental release of stay-at-home orders.”


If only there were some way for the States to all organize together so they have the might to buy supplies at low cost and have expertese centralized.for times such as these. Seriously, does Kuschner and the Heritage Foundation want to erase the federal government so no entity will be big enough to tell big business what to do or what to pay or what laws and regulations to follow? And look here. Big business is trying to control the federal government to open up the economy. Thank god for the States. https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2020/04/13/trump-reopen-economy-conservative-groups-coronavirus/

Mitch McConnell Blames Impeachment For Trump Coronavirus Incompetence


Mitch McConnell Blames Impeachment For Trump Coronavirus Incompetence



Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has claimed impeachment distracted the federal government from the Coronavirus. The Kentucky Republican suggested the impeachment trial made dealing with the global pandemic more difficult.

McConnell spoke to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt on Tuesday and took the opportunity to link impeachment to the pandemic.

Hewitt praised Republican Senator Tom Cotton for apparently realizing Coronavirus was a problem earlier than others.

“Let me talk to you a little bit about Senator Cotton,” Hewitt said.


Because Trump can only handle one thing at a time. Why is he president?
