    Today was so heartening! With Barack and Michelle Obama in the battle to elect Joe Biden, voting by mail if possible, we have a vastly improved chance of restoring decency to the White House.

      And some of these poor Americans in rural America might just be Trump supporters. I have my doubts that Trump supporters will see the light, and stop voting against their own interests.
      Whatever is afflicting them has no cure … yet (I can be hopeful).

    Congrats to Joe Biden and team!! It ended the way we thought it would, and now he’ll have the most progressive platform. Congrats to everyone, everywhere, who fought so hard for this moment. may all beings be happy.

    This is the tweet I was referencing. Trump is criticizing the WHO for praising China’s transparency on coronavirus, which he also did in January.

    Quote Tweet Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump · Jan 24
    China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!

        Yup, on Friday or Thursday last week, Gavin Newsom said the same thing to Dr. Rachel Maddow. He had some deal in Asia. He didn’t say what country when pressed by Rachel. He said that as a Nation-State, being the 5th World economy, he had that purchasing power & he used it to make a deal for Masks, PPEs & something else…for delivery within 2 weeks. He also stated that he would share with other States.

    Congrats on being witting players in his macabre dreams. First thoughts today were how we’re frozen in time with Doom, all agog while he does his tap dance and horror show, tells his 18 thousandth barefaced lie, threatens those who dare, blames governors, does away with children, ignores nursing homes, does deals with dictators.
    And still we are transfixed, wide-eyed as the Mother of all Disasters is coming straight for us…
    He blubbers and slobbers about ‘re-opening the economy’…whereupon governors who haven’t shut down their states + state media parrot the deadly message.
    Do we understand how many will DIE if we don’t take away the person or the mic?
    “You’re Fired!” has become “It’s an OK Day for You to Compete and Die”. Can we at least try to imagine
    the gigantic imminent death toll if we don’t get some real action on testing, tracing, isolation, stay in place, masks to essential workers, food to the hungry (while farmers are ploughing it under)?
    And shut him the FU about ‘re-opening’.

    Keeping it secret from the Mob…
    “Governor Pritzer is “arranging secret flights from China to bring millions of masks and gloves to Illinois.
    The governor is worried President Trump might try to seize the supplies
    for the federal stockpile so he’s keeping the details quiet….
    The supply chain has been likened to the Wild West,
    and once you have purchased supplies,
    ensuring they get to the state is another herculean feat.”

    My son, who lost his best friend Alan, his “brother from another mother” in August 2017 (he was 31 at the time died from a blood clot that traveled to his lungs and triggered a massive heart attack), is staying just outside Philadelphia with Alan’s parents during this quarantine period. The grief these past 2 years has been very hard not just on him, but especially for Alan’s mother, Deb. A couple of months ago, a favored Aunt died and today her disabled daughter, Heather, has tested positive for COVID-19 and is in ICU. I am not sure how much more Deb can handle, or her husband Gary either for that matter; or even for my son, who also lost his wife to a divorce b/c she came out in 2018. Please pray for them all. Thanks.

    “Foreign-born workers ready to help save lives are ‘ensnared by read tape and visa rules’…
    Some are having difficulty securing appointments for visas at U.S. consulates overseas that are hobbled by skeletal staffing,” The Times continued, completely unsurprising when the administration went on a closing binge last year and shut down a number of international immigration offices. “
    “But many of those working to get medical help from overseas said there was an apparent lack of coordination between the various government agencies involved,” The Times continued, “including Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department.”

    Leadership crisis = consult a wrestler (above):
    9 million veterans in the largest U.S. healthcare system and only 35,000 have been tested.
    Top ranking officials of the Department of Veterans Affairs are covering up,
    claiming “no concern about any shortages”, while leaked internal memos show a very different story.
    The rationing of protective medical equipment has already begun, with frontline VA health workers given one mask a day, and hospitals deciding who gets a mask. Some hospitals ask staff to bring their own mask.
    In one center staff are seeking donations of bleach from the public. While spokeswoman Noel is bigtime lying that all employees have PPE, VA Secretary Wilkie goes AWOL.

  99. April 15, 2020 at 3:08 pm

    Reporting now for weeks on the devastating numbers of deaths in nursing homes, Rachel Maddow says
    “It is clearer than day” that most Americans are dying in congregate living places, nursing homes and long term care facilities. In Wayne, West Virginia there are 67 confirmed coronavirus cases, and 66 are from one nursing home. In Montgomery County PA, virus cases are doubling every seven days, 61% of county deaths are from congregate care facilities, 73 out of 600 facilities have confirmed cases.
    There is no national tracking – yet this is where most Americans will die.
    The federal government is not working on it, or acknowledging it.
    So what can concerned local officials do without federal help? Maddow speaks with Dr. Valerie Arkoosh,
    board of commissioners who has daily check-ins followed by discussions.
