    Rachel Madddow recalls the first COVID-19 warning America received from Dr. Nancy Messionner on February 25th. Next day it suited to Trump report a fact, that John Hopkins’ research found the U.S. to be number one
    in pandemic preparedness globally. So what (the hell) happened?
    Maddow:
    “It doesn’t matter how great the car is if you can’t drive.
    Despite all the ostensible readiness, we of course have been absolutely abysmal at handling this virus.
    We’re a global model for how to bollix a pandemic response in pretty much every conceivable way.”

    • December 7, 2020 at 11:23 am

      Fareed Zakaria: “Ten Lessons For A Post-Pandemic World”.
      Lesson Two: “What Matters is Not the Quantity of the Government, but the Quality.”
      “By July, with less than 5% of the world’s population, the U.S. had over 25% of the world’s cumulative confirmed cases. Per capita daily death rates in the United States were ten times higher than in Europe. Was this the new face of American exceptionalism?”
      “These ills of government are an American, not a democratic disease. Many other democracies handled this pandemic effectively, better than any dictatorship. That list includes countries run by political parties
      of all stripes.”
      “The country could become more parochial and less global, losing influence and innovation,
      all the while consoling itself with fantasies that it is utterly exceptional. For many decades, the world needed to learn from America. But now America needs to learn from the world. And what it most needs to learn about is government – not big or small but good government.”

    • December 7, 2020 at 11:28 am

      Fareed Zakaria speaks with Maddow:
      “There is a 40 year old assault (on government). When Bannon comes into the White House,
      he said ‘the goal of the Trump revolution is the deconstruction of the Administrative state’.
      Now for 40 years you’ve been trying to drown government,
      deconstruct it, guess what? It doesn’t function that well.”
      “Ok we still have a largish government, we still have lots of resources, what do you do? I think one of the lessons here is to pay attention and be serious about governing. This is not a reality TV show.
      And one of the things Trump got away with was making it out as though you really didn’t have to do much. The most telling part about Bolton’s memoirs is that he would go in every day and notice nobody was doing anything. There was no policy being executed day to day. They would literally come in and wonder ‘OK what is the president going to tweet about?’ and ‘What is the damage control we do today? Now if you are running government like that, there’s enough momentum that things can sort of go on OK,
      but come a pandemic, come a crisis, everything falls apart. And so I do think a lot of this you have to blame at the top. Trump has never run anything in his life. He had a small mom and pop real estate business which kind of failed. Then he turned it into a licensing business after ‘The Apprentice’.
      So he hasn’t had much experience, and what experience he had has turned out to be very bad.”

    • December 7, 2020 at 11:30 am

      Zakaria:
      “You know the places that did the best (re: COVID-19) Rachel, were governments in East Asia
      which are not very big governments as a percentage, because they don’t have large welfare states.
      Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore. But what they do have is a tradition of government service is honored, it is respected. In Singapore it is highly paid, you make as much as a banker, as a minister. But importantly these agencies are staffed with technocrats, given a lot of autonomy, given a free rein, respected by government, by society. You know we have to get back to that.
      We’ve had this 20th century debate about the size of the government.
      Whatever size the government is, we want it to be competent. We want it to be respected. We want people to understand that the best people in the world should think about spending some time in government. And if we can come back to that tradition, which is the tradition Roosevelt began, which is the tradition Lyndon Johnson expanded on. We have had periods in American history when American government has functioned superbly. I mean it is American government that beat the Depression, won WW2,
      beat the Cold War, created the Internet, put a man on the Moon.
      This was all government, good competent government.”

    Good morning, TOD!

    President-elect Biden has not been receiving briefs by the NSA due to being blocked by Trump new appointees.

    Seems we have an update:

    “Pentagon spy agencies to meet with Biden transition team” (today)
    “Pentagon officials said Saturday that leaders of the military’s intelligence services will begin meeting with members of President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team Monday,
    ending what some current and former officials said was an impasse that undermined the transfer of control.”
    (https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/pentagon-biden-transition-meetings/2020/12/05/616039b6-3743-11eb-a997-1f4c53d2a747_story.html)

  22. December 7, 2020 at 11:46 am

    Defense Secretary Esper has been fired.
    Rachel Maddow (at times hilariously) asks why get top people out of Pentagon and put trump new people in
    now – after the election? The Pentagon intelligence policy chief, Pentagon policy chief, Pentagon chief of staff, head of the task force to defeat ISIS have all suddenly been chucked out and replaced by junior level trump conspiracy staffers. (Video closes out with Fareed Zakaria interview.)

    Am wondering if by replacing people at the top at the Pentagon in trump’s remaining few weeks, gop architects can do some long-term planning by loading their people into positions lower down on the ladder?

      They will try. But these scumbags are likely to be eliminated later if BidenHarris team decides to review their qualifications – most have none, just nepotism and patronage.

      Start with review of their paperwork & deny the dubious ones security clearance.

    ATLANTA —
    “Georgia election officials on Monday said they would recertify the results of the state’s presidential race after another recount had reaffirmed Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory over President Trump, the third time that results showed that Mr. Trump had lost the state.

    “We have now counted legally cast ballots three times, and the results remain unchanged,” Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a Republican, said in a news conference.

    The announcement on Monday is the latest blow to Mr. Trump’s attempts to subvert the election results in Georgia.”

    President-Elect Biden,
    2020 Job Numbers & Economy, Dec 4th:
    (excerpt)

    “If Congress and President Trump fail to act by the end of December,
    12 million Americans will lose their unemployment benefits they rely on. Merry Christmas.
    The unemployment they rely on to keep food on the table, keep the lights on and the heat on, pay their bills. Emergency paid leave will end. Moratorium on evictions will expire. States will lose the vital tools they need to pay for COVID testing and public health. Put yourselves in that position, anybody listening, laying awake at night, wondering what’s going to happen tomorrow. It’s going to be harder for states to keep children and educators safe in schools, to try to provide assistance to keep small businesses alive. States and cities are already facing large, large budget shortfalls this year. Again, through no fault of their own. They’ve already laid off more than a million workers. Even more teachers, firefighters, cops will lose their jobs unless federal government steps shut up now. All of this weakens our ability to control the virus if we don’t step up now.

    Emergency paid leave reduces the spread of COVID because it allows people to stay home when they’re sick. States and cities need funding to direct their COVID response, which is the only way we’re going to end the economic crisis as well, the only way we’re going to get people back to work. I’m not alone in saying this situation is urgent. If we don’t act now, the future will be very bleak.

    Americans need help and they need it now. And they need more to come early next year. “

  35. December 7, 2020 at 1:29 pm

    Using the power you have.
    “Joe Biden should do everything at once”
    “How to succeed in hyperpolarized politics: run a blitz.”
    “What we do know is that Republicans will wage full-on war on Biden from the second he takes office….
    The right will be what it is, what it has been becoming for decades now; expecting anything else would be madness. The question is how the Biden administration should behave, knowing all this.”

    • December 7, 2020 at 1:32 pm

      “Biden’s best chance is to try to overwhelm the system the way Trump did,
      by doing so much that it’s impossible to make any one thing into a lasting story.
      He should launch so many simultaneous reforms that there’s no time for right-wing media to make up lies about all of them or for the Supreme Court to hear them all. He should ignore bad-faith attacks and stay relentlessly on message about what’s gotten done and what’s getting done next. He should, at every juncture, get caught trying to make government work better for ordinary people.

      To succeed, all this must happen alongside Democratic Party efforts to improve messaging and media,
      get persistent party infrastructure on the ground in communities the party has neglected, and innovate on voter outreach and persuasion. (Aaron Strauss has some good ideas on that front.)

      But Biden has something the rest of the party at the federal level does not have:
      the power to improve Americans’ lives in a visible way. More than anything else, cynicism about government’s ability to do that is corroding US politics. The best thing Biden can do, morally and politically, is act, as much and as fast as possible, and then talk about it, and do more of it, and talk about it more. (And he should be clear about exactly who stands in the way of bigger, better changes, and why his name is Mitch McConnell.)

      The rest of it, he should ignore:
      the Washington chatter about the latest Republican accusations or catty infighting among Democratic factions, the cable news story or Twitter drama of the day, the latest offensive thing Trump or some Trump surrogate said, all of it. Bulldoze through it.

      The president has limited ability to control political discourse and drama, but he has an enormous capacity to change policy and direct resources.
      Biden should use that power while he has it, without hesitation or apology.”

      DAVID ROBERTS’ must-read: (https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/21724758/biden-transition-trump-polarized-climate-change-health-immigration)

    related to immigrant families that had been separated by the United States
    after months of saying no such data existed.”
