Let's Talk About The Bozo Driving This Bus

Recommended Posts

Trump was visited in the White House by several people, including the President of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. She called the availibility of PPE "sporatic but manageable." She said she had been using the same N95 mask for a few weeks.

Trump told her, "Sporatic for you but not for a lot of other people, because I've heard the opposite, I've heard that they are loaded up with gowns now, and initially we had nothing, we had empty cupboards. We had empty shelves, we had nothing because it wasn't put there by the last administration."

He is telling this nurse that no matter what her experience is, he knows the truth and its the opposite of what she says.

In essence he told her she is wrong, and if she's right, its Obama's fault.

Forget the childish bs about empty cupboards, he's been in office for over 3 years. He claims that he knew about the pandemic at the end of January when he placed the China travel ban. But his admistration didn't begin purchasing and managing the PPE supply for almost 2 months.

He doesn't want anyone to know about any Presidential pandemic briefings: when he got them, what was in them, what actions he took and what he was telling the American people.

On April 16 US President Donald Trump appeared in the White House briefing room to unveil his official "Opening up America Again" guidelines. State governors were now encouraged to ease their coronavirus restrictions, but on the proviso their decisions were based on "hard verifiable data".

Crucially, in order to begin returning to normal states were supposed to record a 14-day decline in recorded new cases or a downward trajectory of positive tests over the same period. The question was whether the White House would pressure states to follow the guidelines or allow them to be flouted.

Three weeks later, the answer is clear: the latter.

The same is true across the country, including in states that have begun re-opening. According to Johns Hopkins University, 19 US states have seen an upward trend in new confirmed coronavirus cases over the past fortnight. Meanwhile, new cases have declined in 13 states, and 18 states remain at the same level.

This week the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation stunned many Americans by doubling its projected number of coronavirus deaths in the US. The institute now forecasts that 135,000 people will die from COVID-19 in the US by August, up from its previous estimate of 72,433 deaths.

Undeterred by the dramatic increase in projected deaths, the President's message to the American public was clear: it was time to get people back to work, even if that means more people will die from the virus.

The disgraced General Mike Flynn, former Trump National Security Advisor, is now a great American. He was ensnared by the deep-state Democrats in their efforts to bring down our great President.

For wingnuts the ends-justify-the-means. Its OK to turn a disgrace into a hero. Its nothing unusual, just another wingnut whitewash.

Trump and his gangster Attorney General waited until close to the election to work this history rewrite for Flynn. They want a smaller window of time to cover their lies and fight real facts.

Flynn pleaded guilty at two separate court hearings. He now blames his original attorneys. Flynn's new attorneys are also blaming the FBI.

Flynn will not allow his original attorneys to speak about the case. He hides behind the attorney-client priviledge. They know the truth about the deal.

You give evidence on something more important and the prosecutors allow you to plead guilty to a lesser charge. Everyone knows that's the way it works.

But not for wingnuts. Their word and the truth mean nothing.

I always wondered why media wingnuts did not turn against Flynn when he agreed to testify against Trump. Its because they all assumed that Flynn would walk out on the deal and not face consequences. Trump would protect him.

Both Trump and Flynn had business interests that involved Russia, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. Trump still does.

Flynn retroactively filed the paperwork with our government stating that he was a foreign agent of Turkey while serving as Trump's National Security Adviser.

This is important. Flynn was paid over $500,000 to work for Turkey _while_ he was National Security Advisor to the President of the United States.

Flynn was also secretly working for ACU Strategic Partners. The Obama sanctions stopped ACU from working with a Russian company to develop nuclear power deals in the Middle East, mainly Saudi Arabia.

Obama put economic sanctions on Russia because they invaded Ukraine and meddled in our election. These sanctions had overwhelming support in both parties. Flynn secretly, and illegally, discussed the sanctions with the Russians.

Flynn was worried that the Russians would escalate the sanction issue. He illegally reassured them that Trump would kill the sanctions. (Trump tried but there was too much Congressional support and heat from Flynn being exposed.)

Flynn spoke to the Russians to protect his own private business interests. He lied to the FBI about the conversations. That left him open to blackmail and manipulation by America's adversaries.

Flynn was not tricked by Trump-haters. In 2014, under Obama, Flynn was director of the Defense Intelligence Agency. He knew that our government records phone calls with high level Russians. And yet he lied to the FBI. He thought his Trump connection and high level job would make the cover-up work.

General Michael Flynn was a profiteer and scoundrel. He was a perfect fit for Trump.

You just cannot believe a word out of their mouths.

If you do your job honestly and tell the truth, you will not have a job for long.

"Did I hear the word inspector general? Really?" Mr. Trump said during a White House briefing, demanding that the reporter who asked the question give him the name of the inspector general who wrote the report. "Where did he come from, the inspector general? What's his name? No, what's his name? What's his name?"

The he was a she but same result, fired. The folks who speak truth to power are put on a spike to warn others.

"Hospitals reported that they were unable to keep up with COVID-19 testing demands because they lacked complete kits and/or the individual components and supplies needed to complete tests," the survey of 323 hospitals found. "When patient stays were extended while awaiting test results, this strained bed availability, personal protective equipment (PPE) supplies, and staffing."

The nomination of Weida — currently an assistant U.S. attorney — marks the latest replacement of a high-level watchdog by the president. A month ago, he fired the inspector general who raised concerns that eventually led to his impeachment. Days later, he removed the inspector general charged with overseeing the government's coronavirus response bill.

These Inspector Generals, who are being fired by Trump, are supposed to oversee the integrity of the system, well fat chance when the leader values his personal advancement above all else.

In the United States, the Trump Organization took Mr. Davies’s coat of arms for its own, making one small adjustment — replacing the word “Integritas,” Latin for integrity, with “Trump.”

If you are not a Trump Toady, you are gone.

Quote

Many political appointees of Donald Trump, the 45th and current President of the United States, have resigned or been dismissed. The record-setting turnover rate in the Trump Administration has been noted in various publications.

What is a President without oversight? As long as he controls one house he can block the Congress. It appears that the Supreme Court will rule that he cannot be investigated while in office. Is he a King?

Trump is probably going to jail if he loses this election, or I should say loses control of the government, because he, and his wingnut media, are signaling "violence" to an unfavorable election result.

yeah its pretty clear that there is a narrative Trump wants put out into the public forum, whether it is COVID, Russia, FBI investigations, etc and anyone putting out a deviation that contradicts his narrative is gonski.

Brazil is being run the same way,  China too, probably Russia as well;and its no coincidence that these country's COVID response and impacts are similarly disastrous
