    “Under Trump, Formerly Stalwart CDC Goes Soft On Meat Plants”
    “Rachel Maddow looks at how the CDC’s guidance on worker safety against COVID-19 infection in meat processing plants appears distinctly, and unusually, less forceful than CDC guidance has been in other situations in different presidential administrations”
    –listen and find out Whodunit…incredible.

    • September 23, 2020 at 11:40 am

      Trump watered down CDC guidance on behalf of the meat industries, caused massive employee sickness. And death. Trump executive orders took draft language from meat lobbyists. Then used by entire industry. Corporate greed in the meat industry succumbed to pressure to weaken the guidance for profit.
      They didn’t give a damn about their workers.
      –Maddow and team have been on this since April and finally got the goods.
      –Who at the CDC rescinded the final report and watered it down…revealed.

    • September 23, 2020 at 1:11 pm

      Part 2:
      “CDC director’s office ordered softening of Covid safety protocols”
      “In a TRMS exclusive, Rachel Maddow reports on the CDC changing the language on its own coronavirus safety protocols for a South Dakota Smithfield meat processing plant to make the language more optional on orders from CDC Director Robert Redfield’s office.”
      –Um the first video above is Part One from April at the first unfolding of this tragecdy…
      –Here’s Part Two from last night: The original guidance from CDC disease detectives. (links below)
      Plus who did the watering down.

    I signed up with Michelle Obama’s crew to register new voters, but everyone in my sphere of influence is already registered. We have automatic voter registration in Oregon. Cannot wait to get my ballot by mail in 3 weeks and VOTE the same day, walk it to the drop box at my local public library and feel a great sense of satisfaction. Vote tracker tells me by email when my county elections mails me my ballot, receives it back from me and finally when they have determined it’s valid. Vote early, however you can. Keep calling your Senators to honor Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish to have consideration of her replacement deferred until after Inauguration (of Joe Biden/Kamala Harris if we all vote in massive numbers).

      Judith, Thanks for telling me when we get our OR ballots in the mail. Not sure what you were talking about concerning voter tracker? How does that work? I called early on to ask questions about the drop boxes. The County Clerk told me several places where I could go to drop my ballot, but some were in different counties as I live in an area that the boundary for three counties zigs and zags. In asking further questions about how is the vote tallied in a different county she said the ballots are bundled and sent off to the correct county. I said how are they sent? Through the post office? She could not know for sure so going to the nearest drop box for me to avoid the post office might still involve the post office. I am driving my ballot to the County Courthouse drop box. When does the voters pamphlet come out as it has the measures and unaffiliated positions in it? I mark up my pamphlet then when the ballot comes I know who I am voting for. It will be easy to vote straight Blue though.

      • September 23, 2020 at 1:03 pm

        The Oregon general election voters’ pamphlet will be posted online and mailed to registered voters October 5th. Sign up for ballot tracker through your county elections office. Are you in Multnomah County? Sign up online for Track Your Ballot at multnomah.ballottrax.net(link is external)

    It is my fervent belief that Putin isn’t so much enjoying making Trump look like an utter fool and incompetent as he is enjoying trying to make President Obama watch as he controls Trump like a marionette. In Putin’s mind it will always be about President Obama, no other person walking the earth sticks in Putin’s craw like Barack does and it pains him to no end. Putin misses the chess game that President Obama offered him, Putin would give anything to have one more crack at President Obama because he enjoyed the fight. He has nothing but contempt for Trump, Trump has did the one thing that you should never do to an adversary, and that is bore them.

    Tens of thousands of ballots in jeopardy in PA…don’t let gop do it.
    “‘Naked ballots’ could invalidate thousands of votes in Pennsylvania and cost Joe Biden the election”
    “A Pennsylvania Supreme Court decision to void so-called “naked ballots” mailed without envelopes that conceal the voter’s identity could cause “electoral chaos” and protracted legal battles, state election officials have warned.”
    (https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/us-election/naked-ballots-2020-election-joe-biden-pennsylvania-b540073.html)
    Creative responses?
    e.g. Possible to use your own smaller envelope if you don’t receive one? Print on the envelope to all voters and on the return outer envelope: “Remember to save and use your inner secrecy envelope”, etc.

    Do we really want to expand the Supreme Court if Trump is able to get his nominee onto the court and he end up losing the Presidential election? If that is indeed the case we might end up with a different court every four or eight years and then stability is out of the window, and then we become just another country with a unstable judicial system. I’m not saying that the current system is perfect, its not, far from it. Unfortunately the people that run the system aren’t the best and brightest.

      What am I missing, the officers shot Breona Taylor multiple times and killed her and basically sprayed her apartment and several other apartments with bullets and one officer is charged with wanton endangerment?

  19. 42 Don
    September 23, 2020 at 2:29 pm

    Not man-slaughter, not negligible homicide, but wanton endangerment. A dead body riddled with bullets, and we get wanton endangerment. This officer will do little to no time, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s given probation.

    Supposedly there is one witness that heard the police knocking on Breona Taylor’s front door in her apartment complex. Let me explain to those of you that don’t know how apartment complexes work in our communities. Everybody knows everything that goes on in everybody’s apartment. If a baby burps in an apartment on the ground floor the person that lives on the fifteenth floor will be able to tell you in which apartment and in which room that baby burped in. There is no way in hell that those police officers knocked on Taylor’s door before entering her apartment. And I don’t want to hear anyone say “well there are good police officers and there are bad police officers.” The police profession is the only profession that you have to preface by saying “well there are good police officers and there are bad police officers.” What the fuck does that even mean, Chris Rock does a routine in which he says you wouldn’t fly with an airline that says “well he have good pilots and we have bad pilots.” This is so frustrating, every single time injustice wins out.

      If that is indeed the final outcome with Trump winning the election at the hands of the Supreme Court, I say oh well, because any country that can’t hold on to its democracy doesn’t deserve to keep it. You cannot have one system of justice or governance for one set citizens and injustice and bad governance for another set of citizens and expect good things, and the Supreme Court is the perfect example. So, it is what it is.

      I’m deeply regretting our decision to vote absentee. I called our Election Commission today. Learned our ballots will not be sent back to us until first week in October. If I voted in person, it would have to be a provisional ballot. Don’t feel good about that either.

    Trumpvirus update:
    Over 200,000 fellow Americans are dead due to trumpvirus.
    New cases up 14% (NYT)
    See by state map: CDC data tracker

    • September 24, 2020 at 11:22 am

      Symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus.
      People with these symptoms may have COVID-19:
      Fever or chills
      Cough
      Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      Fatigue
      Muscle or body aches
      Headache
      New loss of taste or smell
      Sore throat
      Congestion or runny nose
      Nausea or vomiting
      Diarrhea
      Look for emergency warning signs for COVID-19. If someone is showing any of these signs, seek emergency medical care immediately:
      Trouble breathing
      Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
      New confusion
      Inability to wake or stay awake
      Bluish lips or face
      —remembering first signs, fighting to keep the eyes open right after getting up, extreme exhaustion.
      —months later, friend’s symptoms persist with pressure in chest, rapid heartbeat, headache, exhaustion, disorientation, most days still cannot even go for a short walk.
