A watchdog out of Trump’s grasp unleashes wave of coronavirus audits

Westlake Legal Group tzH4u39W3nxyGG78McEoFvDqLGmjn5zCn5bsuICw3zM A watchdog out of Trump's grasp unleashes wave of coronavirus audits r/politics

South Korea and the US had their first infected patient on the same exact day in January.

South Korea went to work to protect their people. Trump started the lying and did nothing.

By March 5, South Korea had tested nearly 150,000 people or 2,745 tests per million. The US had tested around 1,500 people or 5 tests per million.

South Korea was testing 100 of its citizens for every one person tested in the US, that’s why their death toll is under 250.

The US raced passed 40,000 and climbing.

Trump could have followed the example set by South Korea who have flattened their curve and they will see a soft landing, but Trump took the entire month of February off to spend watching TV, golfing, tweeting, taking foreign trips, and holding ego fluffing rallies

Why are Americans so servile to a clown president?

Westlake Legal Group ZCwBEMOon7NfmdjwtSxzqIt4orQj2xCHrcJqdDDrVTM Why are Americans so servile to a clown president? r/politics

How, I’ll never quite understand, but he did it.

He spoke their language. Before the Tea Party “revolution” we had the propagandists spouting the talking points and the politicians quietly going about their jobs making the rich richer, attacking unions, minority voting rights, etc. Trump came along and spoke the language of the propagandists, bringing the racism, xenophobia, etc. to the forefront. He didn’t make the wave, he’s just riding it.

The analogy I like to use is Dr. Frankenstein. Billionaire propagandists like the Koch brothers used a fake movement to convince people to vote Republican after Bush, Jr. pretty much collapsed their popularity. It was ultra-right wing on social issues and libertarian on economic ones… flat tax, deregulation of industry, anti-union, etc. The Republican Party was more than happy to embrace the Tea Party because it helped them win elections… a LOT of elections. But they lost control of the “the monster”. Frankenstein was on the loose and he really believed the insane propaganda he was being fed! Along came politicians like Trump who were willing to co-opt the crazy talk and call it their own and suddenly you have tens of millions of brain dead morons completely ignoring the world around them in favor of soundbytes from “approved sources”.

Make no mistake about it, people. These are dangerous times that we’re living in. Twenty years ago it was very poor manners to compare anyone to Nazis, but the type of information control being exercised by the Republican Party and its minions makes the rise of Naziism very possible right here in America. Donald Trump would have no problem whatsoever convincing his faithful that we should be rounding up “undesirables.” He would be cheered for the suggestion, in fact. We’re there.

With no good answer for his lost month of coronavirus preparation, Trump snaps at another female reporter

Westlake Legal Group YqaxGKVPq_kGWsZJkIvWEHDF75YpXcag_j4y7IJshtU With no good answer for his lost month of coronavirus preparation, Trump snaps at another female reporter r/politics

As usual, Trump brought up his February 2 travel “ban” which has allowed 40,000 American nationals to travel to the US after that date, none of whom were tested, none of whom are being traced, only a handful of whom were quarantined. They didn’t even take their temperatures. They didn’t even initially impose social distancing: thousands of flyers stood check-to-jowl as they waited to answer agents reading questions from a list. How many of the 40,000 caught the incredibly infectious virus at the airport? We’ll never know.

As the reporter said, the virus was already IN the US: 430,000 people flew from China to the US after China’s notification to the world (on New Year’s Eve) that it was wrestling with a new dangerous virus.

Trump is taking credit for closing the barn door (badly, no tests etc for the 40,000) long after the horse had bolted.

Do you think his supporters will be satisfied by that excuse, the 1000th time he repeats it? Will they continue to believe their stable genius is doing a really great job?

Edit: Over and over, Trump asked the reporter “How many people had the virus when I did the travel ban?” (not an exact quote). The CDC says there were 8 known cases on February 2. Just in case Trump asks you that question. He didn’t know the number.

Kentucky Reports Highest Coronavirus Infection Increase After a Week of Protests to Reopen State

Westlake Legal Group NGV2IyWeuKSRQRKOs_Rvd49kg_VoZWTQdWw345EChhw Kentucky Reports Highest Coronavirus Infection Increase After a Week of Protests to Reopen State r/politics

Thanks to u Dr_Midnight who wrote this. I edited.

As I said in the past, I am very skeptical of online organizations esp in an election year.

Isn’t it funny that all these “grassroots “ organizations appeared overnight to protest quarantines?

There’s a ton of “astroturfing” going on, it seems to me.

Astroturfing: organized activity that is intended to create a false impression of a widespread, spontaneously arising, grassroots movement in support of or in opposition to something (such as a political policy) but that is in reality initiated and controlled by a concealed group or organization (such as a corporation)

It’s quite visible in how those groups popped up literally overnight.

Compare the link to the group “Pennsylvanians Against Excessive Quarantine” To the link to the group “Minnesotans Against Excessive Quarantine”. Why do these groups have the exact same description?

It’s time to OPEN UP PENNSYLVANIA and STOP Gov Wolf’s Excessive Quarantine! Politicians are on a power trip, controlling our lives, destroying our businesses, passing laws behind the cover of darkness and forcing us to hand over our freedoms and our livelihood! ENOUGH! Go to www.ReOpenPA.com and send an email to Tom Wolf telling him to stop his excessive quarantine and REOPEN Pennsylvania!

It’s time to OPEN OUR STATE and STOP Gov Walz’ Excessive Quarantine! Politicians are on a power trip, controlling our lives, destroying our businesses, passing laws behind the cover of darkness and forcing us to hand over our freedoms and our livelihood! ENOUGH! Go to www.ReOpenMN.com and send an email to Tim Walz telling him to stop his excessive quarantine and REOPEN MINNESOTA!

Compare the Operation Gridlock Los Angeles description to the Operation Gridlock Tennessee description. The copy is identical.

Could be a coincidence.

Let’s not stop there. Following their own links: the “Pennsylvania Firearms Association”, and the group “Minnesota Gun Rights” both have the exact same layout.

Both of these domains are registered with the same registrar and were registered on the exact same day at the same time (in Florida).

Following the pattern of their sites, “reopenmd.com” was registered a little more than week later with the same registrar (from Florida). And, for the record, reopenva.com also exists and has the exact same registry info as reopenmd.com.

Why is someone in Florida is registering domains claiming to be anti-quarantine/gun rights organizations in other states?

Apparently, others have found that a domain for pretty much every other state was registered in the same pattern at the same time.

Just be careful out there. Don’t fall for propaganda or let yourself be used.

Thanks to Dr_Midnight.
