2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally 

Where Obtuse Behavior Replaces Common Sense

Cristal M Clark 

Not surprisingly the AP is now reporting the numbers are steadily rolling of those spreading Covid-19 far and wide after attending the 2020 Sturgis motorcycle rally. According to officials, the rally is now tied to roughly 250,000 new cases and that number is growing, in fact the rally is now being dubbed as a massive super spreader. 

The rally drew motorcycle enthusiasts from around the country, roughly 500,000 uncaring individuals, many of whom were seen without face coverings inside crowded bars, restaurants, and other indoor establishments. Now around half are responsible for spreading the virus even further. 

Health officials in South Dakota have said they don’t know how many people were exposed and have issued public warnings of possible COVID-19 exposure at 5 businesses popular with bikers.

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (not exactly what I would call the brightest bulb in the pack), a Republican, has repeatedly defied calls to cancel large gatherings and staunchly opposes requirements to wear masks. This dumb ass actually welcomed the event.

I understand the tourism aspect but at what point does utter stupidity reign king here? This behavior from the attendees to the state of South Dakota is absolutely sickening. And these attendees, most of which are Trump fans who seek to defy orders to wear a face mask and to social distance; the two things that can actually help prevent the spread of the virus, feel like they are good ole American citizens who love this country? 

I call that bullshit, they don’t give a fuck about the United States the country they claim to be proud citizens of,  they don’t give a fuck about each other, you, me, rights, this country, if they did they would be patriotic and wear a goddamn face mask and socially distance, the two things science has actually proven help here. 

Whatsmore is that these are the same people who condemn the agitators who want  to burn cities and abolish the government. 

WTF?

I almost have to laugh at the hypocrisy, the inability for each and every one of them to see that they are in fact behaving the very same way only instead of burn down a city and abolish the government they aim to just spread a potentially deadly virus. 

Fucking morons.  

The obtuse behavior is mind boggling. This is not the behavior of a rough and tough biker, this is the behavior of a disobedient 12 year old girl, who is about to defy her curfew. Disgusting. 

These guys should take note, we have people here in the US who actually cannot wear a face mask when out in public due to health reasons, innocent individuals who don’t want to catch the virus. We should be wearing face masks to protect them and others who might be vulnerable. 

It’s a sad day in America when you look around and start to notice that your fellow American’s don’t give a shit about anyone but themselves and their selfish wants and needs, so much for patriotism here.

CDC Issues Order To Halt Some Evictions Due to Covid-19

No One Knows What That Means, Who Qualifies and What About The Banks?

Cristal M Clark 

Today the CDC issued a mandate halting evictions for some who have been affected by the Covid-19 Crisis which left many feeling a chill at the back of the neck. 

In order to get assistance, renters earning less than $99,000 per year must report they are unable to pay their rent or are likely to become homeless if evicted, White House officials said.

They must also show that they tried to obtain all government assistance currently available for rent or housing and that they are unable to make payments due to loss of household income, a layoff or extraordinary out-of-pocket medical expenses.

Yet it is unclear how effective the moratorium will be without any extra funding behind the plan.

What it didn’t over was the banks, nothing is stopping the banks from foreclosing on a property where the property owner is no longer able to make payments because of the renter’s who are unable to pay the rent. What’s more is that could destabilize the housing market in a very, very bad way. Landlords in many places have been behind on payments because of the virus as well and it isn’t getting any better with millions still out of work or working a job that doesn’t cover the bills. As states opened, they did so with massive restrictions which meant not all laid off or furloughed workers were able to go back to the jobs they had and for others, where they worked didn’t make it through the country shutting down. 

It is not as easy to solve as many think, for renters this basically does nothing to cover any back rent, and for landlords they need that money in order to keep the banks from foreclosing which might not be the worst thing to happen. The cost of living has grossly outpaced wages, this might be something of a lesson learned type of situation. We need to address the cost of living across the US and make some sacrificial adjustments and banks, well they are going to end up holding a lot of bags that are worth more on their books than they truly are. 

It’s truly sad to see that within the Trump administration they can’t seem to figure out the economic crisis on all of it’s levels while the rest of us are watching it all  and see it so very clearly. The Trump administration haphazardly wants to put a used bandaid on the problem without noticing the other four sides of the equation.

I thought Trump as he likes to brag employs the best of the best, this is a clear indication of how inaccurate that is. They just keep digging the US and her out of work citizens into a deeper hole as the virus rages on rather than look at what other countries have done, countries that opened fully and who are not having issues. You see for some, they realized this is in fact something we must learn to live with and adjust how we live. Here in America Trump and his goons as well as his idiotic supporters can’t seem to grasp the simplicity of learning to live every day life with a virus that could kill them at the drop of a pin.

Reddit Roasts America 

Foreigners Share Their Unfiltered Thoughts About the State of America 

Cristal M Clark 

I suppose we should have expected something like this, it is 2020 and Donald Trump has turned the White House into a cesspool of White Trash the last 4 years, pretty much filling the swamp with well, white trash. Today on Reddit non-American’s shared their unfiltered opinions about the state of America as she stands as of today, and it’s actually really more true than most are willing to admit. 

Look folks it’s no secret Trump and his administration failed really eloquently when it came to Coronavirus, it is also no secret that he is the by far biggest offender of spreading misinformation, I mean today he announced that Portland is on fire every day due to the protests. Portland is not on fire, are the protests out of hand? Yes.

Donald Trump also turns into a whiny little bitch when he is losing, he blames, pouts, lies, spreads misinformation trying to play into his base – in fact, he is running an add about defunding the police, with video playing in the background depicting violent protests that have all happened during his watch. 

He also stirs the pot with regards to racism, he supports gun toting thugs showing up to a protest and shooting at protesters, killing people. Trump supports gun nuts who believe in and support vigilantism and those who want to become vigilantes. 

It’s like he is fighting Biden, defunding the police and the police all at the same bloody time. 

Tf? Hello Donald, you cannot have your cake and eat it too here. Trump will publicly praise these individuals and condemn protesters? Trump supports vigilantism, the act of violent, murderous behavior and yet can’t seem to educate himself enough to garner a shred of understanding for BLM? 

No, rioting and looting are not protesting, I agree with that and it is still a fact that the groups looting and rioting are agitators who stand apart from peaceful protesters. These are in fact individuals who want to see this country go to war with each other. Yet at the same time, Trump will support a vigilante over the police he also claims to support? I’m so confused. 

A simple question on Reddit today did really open a lot of eyes. The viral Reddit thread invited non-Americans on the internet to weigh in, asking them: “What is your genuine reaction to what’s going on in America right now?” 

And here are more than just a few highlights with regards to how the rest of the world is seeing America right now:

“It’s like watching Britney Spears go through that “shaved-head phase.”

“America amirite” replaced talking about the weather. Everyone is dumbfounded by what’s going on.”

“For me, the craziest (and sadly, most predicable) thing was how there were Americans protesting face mask mandates. You’d think the most patriotic thing they could’ve done for their fellow countrymen would be to protect them, but nah.”

“On the other hand it’s sad that we know more about US politics than local politics. People protest for BLM in Berlin, and nobody talks about other things going on elsewhere.”

“The US always appeared like an older, stronger brother – now it feels like this brother started using meth.”

That one stings right?

“Actually, this is bit kind of encapsulates us perfectly. Don’t look too closely or you’ll see all the flaws. And the people who live here pretend they don’t exist.”

“You’re so busy flinging shit at each other, you can’t see the mess you’ve made.”

“European That lived in india and now in the states.. when I look back at American coworkers being afraid to have to travel to our india office and this it’s all so bad there I chuckle.. the streets here have always been dirtier than what I saw in Bangalore.. ppl here just don’t learn anything about any other country and think every other country has so much less.. I mean I was asked how I coped living in india for 2 years with no toilets in the house.. like wtf my apartment in Bangalore was nicer than the one I have in San Francisco.. every country has good and bad sides to it but the arrogance in the US that every other country only has bad sides to them and only the US is free (so many more points here) that will always be mind boggling to me.”

“I knew there were lots of idiots, but the sheer quantity is mind-blowing. And how so many Americans just can’t handle a view that’s different to their own, or at least allow others to have a different view, is crazy.”

“I’m from Syria. Everybody knew some shit like this is gonna happen.”

“I live in the asshole of the world Bosnia,Balkan.And it seems to me America just hit puberty.”

“Still on their first constitution.”

“Living in another shithole country (Republic of Moldova, Eastern Europe) I can confirm that what happens in USA right now is what we are experiencing here for more than 30 years. Even before that, even before USSR, we were quite a polarized country (I can’t even call us a nation).”

Guess we have Trump to thank for making the “Shithole Country” thing take off, it’s quite a hit. 

“Kinda surprised cuz you guys actually have money can live well have acess to culture and just dont even bother to , not really surprised cuz my country is even worst so the fact that people go out of their way to do dumb shit is something im very aware.”

“For me, I feel like nothing in America can surprise me now, I’m just like, ‘Of course that’s happening now.’ I feel sorry for the sane people over there.”

“Being in the UK right now kind of feels like being in a little boat that has broken down and everyone’s too busy being mad at the captain to fix anything. But then you look to the left and there’s a big cruise ship burning as it sinks with people fighting on every deck, and the captain’s throwing gasoline on everything, and you feel a little bit better about the shitty boat you’re in.”

“Canadian here. Like others have said, it’s really all beyond comprehension. To see a once-great nation plunged into chaos and insanity, being ripped apart by a disease that is going unopposed, and is even supported by the country’s own president and many citizens. My country is going well, all things considered, but I’m a bit scared that it’s going to make its way to us. We’re protected by a thin border and border patrol really. The American tidal wave could be disastrous to us if we let them through. We need to keep the borders closed for non-commercial travel.”

“Honestly, it’s borderline beyond comprehension. It constantly feels a little more like a poorly written soap opera than real life.”

“I can’t believe how Americans can politicize EVERYTHING?! Wearing masks, postal service…and before these newer topics, universal healthcare, free (or at least vastly cheaper) university, higher taxation, etc. Those things are a reality in most developed countries, but in America it seems like you can just scream ‘socialism’ and people are against everything. From my German point of view, the two-party system and electoral votes are seriously fucked up, and even the moderate Democrats are pretty right-wing.”

“I don’t wanna talk about Trump, but wow, the anti-maskers piss me off. Like, dude, wear a fucking mask. How hard can it be?”

“This us also true in America. No one knows anything about their local politics. So many if these systemic issue would be better addressed if people focused their energy on their local communities.”

“It honestly just looks like a reality show. It’s really how you’d expect a country like america to be.”

It does not get any better the more you read and honestly, none of it is a lie or in any way, shape or form inaccurate. 

Both sides are to blame, both are stirring the pot, Trump is supporting a murderous teen who shot protesters, killing two and he is stirring the pot by painting the shooter as a victim? It isn’t getting any better, it in fact stands to get worse. This country very well could find herself at war by the new year. This young man not only set out to shoot people, he waltzed into a protest carrying a loaded weapon illegally, this young man had clear intent to kill all in the name of Donald J Trump. 

That isn’t just the only infraction here, we have adults having meltdowns over wearing a fucking mask. These people will literally inhale a bucket of KFC, wash it down with mashed potatoes and gravy without taking a single, solitary breath, and can’t wear a mask to run into the grocery store? And Trump supports that behavior. He managed to find some whack job doctor to go against the grain and agree with anything and everything Donald J Trump wants in an effort to sweep the truth under the rug while more American lives are lost? Are you kidding? I am utterly surprised the guy isn’t urging us to drink shots of bleach. 

The point is, Russia got precisely what she wanted here, manipulate, lie, throw a baboon into the oval office, rip America apart. And Russia is still meddling,  you see on social media all the time, in particular Facebook, so much misinformation is being shared through memes, fake news, groups that are not legitimate, it’s everywhere. 

I understand why the rest of the world views us the way they do, try be an American and watching your entire world fall apart all at the hands of some pretty piss poor leadership who could could give a shit less about even his supporters who are also dying of Covid, worse yet being charged criminally for pulling guns on people, calling the police on Blacks who are bird watching or strolling down the street, wrecking stores, hitting people, spitting on people, coughing on people, pulling guns on people all because they were asked to wear a mask into an establishment, the most patriotic thing you can do. Trump doesn’t like the all too real honesty of his own White House medical team with regards to Covid-19, so he brings some lackluster wannabe who just wants his name in a history book or two to go along with what Trump wants here because I’m sure somewhere Donald has a PHD right?  

On the other side, rioting and looting that isn’t helping, that too is making matters worse and that lends power to Trump’s cause, his base, his misinformation campaign. This is America and people shouldn’t fear living here, Blacks should not have to fear being stopped by a cop for any reason. Our president should be the loudest voice of all in support of Black lives, yet he prefers to stir the racial pot. 

And all of this is what Putin wanted. 

Congrats Putin.

Donald Trump Changes Tone Regarding Coronavirus

Too Little, Too Late?

Cristal M Clark

Today, Donald J Trump re-started his beloved white house briefings, but not all will be about the Coronavirus, rumor has it most will be part of his campaign or more lies.

Either way, he did take a huge step forward and has changed his tone with regards to the coronavirus, he stated that it will get worse before it gets better. 

That is huge for Donald Trump, whats-more is that he is still encouraging the use of face masks. In an about face he stated bluntly that face masks slow the spread and encouraged everyone to wear one when they are unable to social distance. He even encouraged younger individuals to refrain from going to bars, gathering in large crowds.

He should get some credit for that. He basically without coming right out and saying it told everyone he was wrong to downplay it and brush it off this long. 

What he is getting raked for are two key things: At this point many are wondering why we still have yet to see a real feasible plan of action. Fact, we do not have enough testing, fact the number of Covid deaths is hugely underreported because fact, hospitals are running out of tests and fact, not all tests are even accurate, still. Fact, we do not have adequate contact tracing in many major cities and municipalities. 

The other key point was – where is the economic recovery plan? I think now’s the time to say this but have we all learned now that attempting to rush to reopen pretty much failed and in rather glorious fashion? So where is a solid, well thought out, feasible economic recovery plan? Donald Trump does like to tout about just how great of a businessman he is. Where is a plan that will work without making things worse, where is the plan to prevent small businesses from going out of business, while also getting people back to work?

I know the extra $600 each week upset a lot of individuals as it prevented people from going back to work. But just taking it away will hurt the economy even more right now. What Congress, the Senate and the Administration fail to notice is that the cost of living still outpaces what people were even making so they must find a middle ground. 

But the thing that really disappointed me was the president insisting that the virus will eventually just go away. Fact, it is not going to just go away. We are going to be faced with it for a very long time. 

I will still give Trump credit for trying. He is not good at public speaking in this type of forum, as a president. He stuck pretty much to topic and ad libbed less than I have ever seen him do before. 

His actions today were a step forward, if he keeps on that path up to the election, the honesty about the virus and if he sticks to a solid game plan, not use the camera as if he were in front of just his staunch supporters, he’ll gain in the polls. What would really set him apart from Biden here though is that if he used this time to work with the US and not just the big dogs, but smaller business owners and workers and developed a more proper economic recovery plan. 

Stick to what you tell us you do best Donald and you’ll end taking the election by storm. And by the way, a lot of folks out in the real world are weary of mail in ballots whether they planned on voting Trump or not. That is the word from the street. 

So stick to what you know but have a solid, real world economic recovery plan. Work with the working crows and not just business owners. Keep being honest about the virus, your not good at lying about it or ignoring it.

Donald Trump Takes to Twitter – Says It’s Patriotic to Wear a Face Mask

Also Says He’s Over the Pandemic

Cristal M Clark 

Knew you’d come around Donnie.

Today Donald Trump started to take to Twitter urging American’s to wear a face mask amid the pandemic, stating that it is patriotic. 

Just today we saw an article in the New York Post about a woman who had a meltdown over being asked to wear a face mask in a California Verizon store. She had her fit, dropped trow and pissed on the floor. 

This is how American’s are behaving over having to wear a face mask and it’s pure ridiculousness. To add insult to injury responding officers collared the woman and found several items that had been stolen from a nearby Dick’s Sporting Goods store in her car, according to the outlet.

I take it this idiotic woman didn’t quite think things all the way through. Utterly disgusting behavior. 

Right now it is our civil and patriotic duty to wear a face mask amid the pandemic, to refuse like a coward, you are telling us all that you are not truly an American Citizen, a true American Citizen will stand up and fight for this country, long before perceived rights, freedoms or civil liberties. Your jobs are to stand with the rest of us, protect our fellow citizens and our precious economy and wear a face mask like a true American would. 

The longer American’s display such sickening behavior the longer states will be forced to remain partially closed, roll back re-openings and look at full statewide shut downs again.  

Our webcast last night and article last Thursday evening actually went over American’s refusing to wear a face mask during a pandemic and calling them out for not being true American Citizens. It’s about time the Don took notice and started to do the right thing. But don’t stop yet Donald J Trump, if you don’t like the monsters you see who display such horrid and unpatriotic behavior, you only have you to blame for creating them. Just as they did you. 

Over the weekend Donald J Trump expressed that he was over the pandemic, more or less brushing it off and White House Staff have reportedly encouraged the Don to avoid the subject of the Pandemic at all costs. 

Ha, ha, ha. Donald, why do you bother listening to those that surround you, is it not yet clear whose interest they have in mind. If it’s not yet, let me get the clouds out of your way, it’s not your best interest they have in mind. Anyone telling you to avoid discussion about it, is not thinking of you at all. 

And this virus, well it’s far from being done with and over us.

So again, Donald J Trump, if you are tired of it, tired of seeing our economy fall into further ruin, and if you are tired of watching the utterly disgusting and vile behavior from those who refuse to face mask, remember they created you and in turn you created them and their behavior. If you do not like what you see or what you are being faced with as our President, then you, yourself must change you, your very own response to the pandemic, your behaviors and drive the change. 

And the first step you should be taking aside from encouraging face masks, is to stop listening to those who you surround yourself with, they are in fact making you look like a complete and utter failure if not a complete fool.

Donald Trump – ‘Anti-Maskers-Aren’t True Americans’

No War Was Ever Fought for American Rights, Liberties or Freedoms – Except for One

Cristal M Clark 

Show of hands, who is sick and tired of anti-maskers, anti-social distancers utilizing some bullshit excuse such as but not limited to, “my rights, my freedom, my civil liberties?”

I have to wonder just how uneducated people are? Most of those fighting and mouthing off are my age, not younger adults. The Younger adults are just working off of misinformation with regards to the virus and how dangerous it really is. And I am forgiving of the younger generations on this one, look at all of the older generations setting such shining examples of what it is to be a true american. 

So let me break down a list of major wars for everyone:

The United States declared war on Britain in 1812. It did so because Britain refused to stop seizing American ships that traded with France—Britain’s enemy in Europe. Sometimes there were also seizures of American sailors. These seizures were known as impressment. Not for US rights, liberties or freedoms. 

The U.S. entered World War I because Germany embarked on a deadly gamble. Germany sank many American merchant ships around the British Isles which prompted the American entry into the war. Not for US rights, liberties or freedoms. 

World War LL – The war began with Nazi Germany’s attack on Poland in September 1939, the United States did not enter the war until after the Japanese bombed the American fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941. Not for US rights, liberties or freedoms. 

The Vietnam War. The USA became involved in Vietnam because it feared the spread of communism. The USA were unable to defeat the Vietcong and were met with growing opposition to the war back home. Not for US rights, liberties or freedoms. 

In August 1990, Iraq invaded the country of Kuwait to its southeast in a bid to gain more control over the lucrative oil supply of the Middle East. In response, the United States and the UN Security Council demanded that Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein withdraw Iraqi troops from Kuwait, but Hussein refused. Not for US rights, liberties or freedoms. 

The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001 and was supported by close US allies. … Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda and deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power. Not for US rights, liberties or freedoms. 

Not one of those wars were entered into so as to fight for the rights, liberties or freedoms of America or American’s. Overall it was either to support our allies and so as to ensure ultimately that we were not invaded by foreign enemies. 

The only war part of America entered into over rights, freedoms and liberties was in fact:

The American Civil War which was fought between the United States of America and the Confederate States of America, a collection of eleven southern states that left the Union in 1860 and 1861. The conflict began primarily as a result of the long-standing disagreement over the institution of slavery.

Hey Trump, read that one again before you defend the Confederate Flag. 

As to Civil Liberties:

Civil Liberties – The state of being subject only to laws established for the GOOD OF THE COMMUNITY especially with regard to freedom of action and speech. 

You know what the anti-maskers miss about civil liberties right, I think we all see that it is the ‘good of the community’ part. Only thinking of themselves. What is good for the community currently is to wear a face mask and to socially distance.

Soldiers fight for America, not rights, not liberties or freedoms, they fight foreign enemies, potential invaders who if they were to get footing on American soil –  would in fact destroy our country. 

The self proclaimed Wartime President as Trump puts it, “the virus is the enemy.”

Guess what, the virus, the enemy is on US SOIL and destroying our country, our rights, our freedoms because it’s a goddamn virus. 

Anti-Maskers are a huge part of why states are now rolling back openings or considering shutting down again. 

Anti-Maskers by default are simply Un-American because a true soldier would fight the enemy and in this case its by wearing a fucking mask rather than a bullet or a bomb. 

So I am going to say this loud and I am going to say it proudly, Anti-Maskers are anti-american, either shut up and wear a mask to help fight the enemy like a true soldier who loves his or her country or go find country that will afford you your pitiful, shellfish behavior.

Trump Purposely Misleading American’s and That Could Kill Thousands 

Trump’s Harmful Statements Spreading Across the Nation Faster Than Covid-19 

Cristal M Clark 

Just when you think Trump has topped his most erratic behavior he opens his mouth and says something even more toxic and dangerous. 

This past week, including the 4th of July weekend we’ve fallen witness to the damaging effects Trump’s words have had on race relations, guns being pulled left and right on Black American’s, he has strained relationships between citizens and law enforcement. This past weekend Vauhxx Booker, a black man was nearly lynched at Lake Monroe, in Indiana, all at the hands of White Racist Trump supporters. The last two weeks reports of multiple cases of Ken and Karen’s were seen in viral videos depicting whites pulling guns on harmless blacks. In Martinez, California on the 4th a sanctioned BLM mural was painted over by two Trump supporters, in Trump 2020 gear minutes after the sanctioned mural had been finished. The police would like to find those two by the way. These attacks against Black American’s are falling at the hands of Trump supporters who believe the words that fall from Trump’s  mouth, he stirs the race pot and it is going to get someone killed. 

This morning I witnessed a campaign ad Trump is running with regards to defunding the police. It was so misleading I felt sick to my stomach. He suggests in the ad that defunding the police means if you call them for rape, murder or a home invastion leave a message as it will take 5 days to return your call due to defunding the police. 

Are you fucking kidding me? That is not even close to what defunding police really is and means and I would encourage everyone running the ad to pull it, including YouTube TV. It is in fact a false advertisement-period. 

A new low for Trump. 

Where is the President of the United States, where is he or she? We are a nation, without a leader. Instead of leading us through a pandemic the people are taking matters into their own hands, and that is a sad state of affairs for the United States. 

It’s also an open invitation to enemies of our country watching this play out. 

What’s more is  that Trump’s remarks with regards to the Coronavirus have caused severe damage across this nation, with cases rising to epic proportions. Trump stated this past weekend that for 99% of those infected with the virus it is harmless. 

That is completely false, it’s a lie and it’s the same message he keeps trying to send, which has caused huge surges in the virus because people feel like it’s safe to ignore the virus, I mean doesn’t less testing make it just go away? 

Make that statement to front line workers caring for the sick, tell that to a family member who has either watched a loved one die from the virus or who is currently watching a loved one die, or not because still some hospitals are not letting family members in. 

The virus by the way is approximately 4.6% fatal, which if you know any math is not 99% harmless. 

Trump is encouraging behaviors that put American Citizens at a much greater risk of getting and passing on the virus which is the equivalent of encouraging a suicidal person to pull the trigger, or encouraging someone who wants to kill someone to just go out and do it, because this is a potentially deadly virus, it is a weapon, which in turn makes it a criminal charge to encourage irresponsible behavior, or actions that would end up killing someone because of the misuse of said deadly weapon. We do bring criminal charges in this country against those that allow for a deadly weapon to fall into the wrong hands, this virus is the same concept. 

The reality is -as of this morning 32 states are seeing a surge in cases, 3 of which are setting records with the number of newly reported cases within the last 4-5 days. 

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Florida, Texas and Arizona are being hit the worst. Florida on Saturday alone had over 11,400 new Coronavirus infections that day alone and Florida is being viewed as the new epicenter in the US, in Houston, Texas ICU’s at local hospitals are at capacity, Arizona is seeing the same thing. And the infections are not hitting the older population but those that are much, much younger and the outcomes are not looking like at least long term that they are going to actually fare better. 

It’s all about the strain on our healthcare system and not running out of our best treatment, Rendesivir. If we don’t bring the number of infections down and fast, we will run out of Rendesivir when the second wave hits the rest of the nation later this summer/early fall and over the winter, just in time for the election. 

Officials in Florida, Texas and Arizona are now saying that they opened their states before they should have and not carefully. And the number of newly reported cases clearly shows that. What is more concerning though, is the virus is causing life changing issues for many survivors. The way it attacks the body is perplexing to the medical and scientific communities and they still do not know enough about it to say for certain that for 99% of those infected with the virus it is harmless. Many survivors are experiencing issues months after surviving and no one knows if those medical issues are lifelong or months long, years long. 

But to say that for 99% of the population the virus is harmless? That simply is not true and greatly misleads this nation. The harm of Trump’s prior statements and erroneous claims that the virus is not that bad, we are getting ahead of it, it’s not dangerous, tells the public it’s okay to not social distance, not wear a mask, not wash your hands frequently and go ahead and gather in large groups.

Sign a waiver to attend a Trump rally that you don’t have to wear a face mask to, you do not have to socially distance, he is the President that protects your rights, your freedoms, your right to choose not to socially distance, not wear a mask. 

Think about all of those messages and ask that one important question. 

Why would Trump so go out of his way to mislead the public from false advertising with regards to defunding the police, to stirring the race pot, inciting violence against blacks, protecting statues rather than lives and now the lies about Coronavirus.

Why, is Trump lying to a nation of potential voters?  

Trump is attempting a diversion away from the Coronavirus by stirring racial tensions in this nation and his base is more racist than not, we all know that already. Trunp is protecting statues over people and putting out false ad’s with regards to defunding the police. But we all have to ask, what is his end game? 

Winning the election of course. 

He is trying to create a diversion away from the reality of the Coronavirus because quite simply, it makes him look bad and by bad, I mean like a complete, total and utter failure, which is he is. 

So play the race card, stir the tensions, that is the only way to divert attention away from a virus he can’t get ahead of out of nothing more than selfish stupidity and a refusal to listen to actual experts. The bad news for Trump though is that he is still losing at the polls, daily and in troves. Countless news stories have come out especially from the Villages in Florida, about staunch Republican’s bailing on their own party because they have become disgusted with Trump, his behavior, his lies, and his attempts to stir racial tensions and divide our nation, not to mentions how his words, actions and behaviors have misled a nation and caused mixed messages about the Coronavirus. 

The only hope Trump has now is a do over of he racial tensions from 2016 because quite frankly he has no other way into the White House again, no campaign promises he can make this go around, he has nothing, it’s either beat a virus or stir the racial tensions in the nation, again. 

Sadly though, the scientific and medical communities are worried about a new, more deadly swine flu, soon to head our way they have been watching in China, and the Plague has been found in China’s Inner Mongolia Province. Can Trump handle any of that if given an opportunity for another go around?

So in a sense we have caught Trump with his pants down and it is not looking good. More importantly, his own party from the lips of those on the Hill are starting to worry he is not going to win the election because of his behavior and rhetoric. 

And in theory, knowing how ugly of a human being Trump truly is, he could have an even more frightening motive here. Always remember this, Donald J Trump’s inaction, lies and misleading information with regards to the Coronavirus tells us, daily that Trump does not value your life, my life much less the lives of his supporters. He is the a danger to all of us in the United States. We have enough Rendesivir today, if the rate of infection does not get under control and now, we will run out. If we run out before the rest of the nation sees a second wave it will be during the fall and winter, right before the election, before voters head to the polls.  I mean, his plan B is really looking right back at us, now isn’t it?

Trump Administration Fucks Up – Again to the Tune of $7.3 Million

Buy’s Plastic Tubes Made for Bottling – Soda Instead of  Medical Test Tubes

Cristal M Clark 

When you have a leader like Donald Trump running the show this makes perfect sense, I mean the man did take credit for making Juneteenth famous as most people didn’t even know what it was before he made it famous, he’s also recently stated that he’d done more for our black brothers and sisters than even Abraham Lincoln did, and just this week said that we would have less cases of Corornavirus if we stopped testing for it, the number of cases would go way down, it would just disappear. I assume so would the number of pregnancies in the nation if we just stopped testing for it, how about cancer right, just stop testing for it and the number of cases would simply drop as if it just never existed. 

WTF?

Like our inept leader the Trump administration tends to just stumble about making ridiculously stupid decisiions and mistakes. The Trump administration spent $7.3 million in taxpayer money on what they thought were test tubes needed to combat the Coronavirus, rather than properly vet the company and what they actually sell, they just flippantly spent our taxpayer money and made a rather embarrassing purchase. 

Texas based Fillakit LLC sold the administration Plastic tubes that are made for bottling soda and health officials are somewhat dumbstruck by the administration’s choice in test tubes for things like contaminated blood samples. 

To make things worse, according to former employees and ProPublica’s observation of the company’s operations, Fillakit employees do not always wear masks, gather the miniature soda bottles with snow shovels and dump them into plastic bins before squirting saline into them, all in the open air. Rendering them quite possibly contaminated already. 

Comforting right? That is just how much Donald Trump and his administration care about the citizens of this nation. 

And, I am not the only one saying that: the tubes are designed to be expanded with heat and pressure into 2-liter soda bottles, they do not fit the racks used in laboratory analysis of test samples. Even if the bottles were the right size, experts agree that the company’s process likely contaminated the tubes and could yield false test results.

Teresa Green, a retired science teacher who worked at Fillakit’s makeshift warehouse outside of Houston for two weeks before leaving out of frustration: “It wasn’t even clean, let alone sterile.” 

Officials in New York, New Jersey, Texas, and New Mexico confirmed they can’t use the Fillakit tubes. FEMA has asked health officials in several states to find an alternative use for the unfinished soda bottles.

The Trump administration’s often chaotic and frantic hiring of first-time federal contractors with little scrutiny during the pandemic shows how uneducated, inept and useless this administration truly is. The federal government has awarded more than $2 billion to first-time contractors for work related to the coronavirus many of which, like Fillakit, had no experience with medical supplies.

To put the icing the cake here, the Federal Emergency Management Agency signed its first deal with Fillakit on May 7, just 6 days after the company was formed by an ex-telemarketer repeatedly accused of fraudulent practices over the past not one but two fucking decades. Fillakit has supplied a total of more than 3 million tubes, which FEMA then approved and sent to all 50 states. If the company fulfills its contractual obligation to provide 4 million tubes, it will receive a total of $10.16 million of taxpayer dollars all wasted on shit we can’t use! 

Round of applause for Trump and his administration on this one, thanks for wasting our fucking money dipshits.

Economic Recovery Could Take Years

Reopening-America-Crimeshop

MIA – Rapid Rebound for the Economy

Cristal M Clark

Regardless of what many think, reopening states is not going to provide the economic recovery many had hoped for and that is for a number of small reasons that once all added together point to some darker times ahead. 

reopening-america-crimeshop

Consumers are reluctant to spend, many businesses are still unable to open, of those that are, they are learning rather painfully that they will not be able to employ the workforce they once had and of those that can, many of those employees will be working from home, some companies are choosing to shut down entire offices and move everyone to a work from home environment which hit’s a rental market no one has been talking about. Many bars are going to be forced to remain closed simply because they are unable to accommodate social distancing rules, of those that do open, they will lose the profit they need due to the rules and limits on overall capacity post Covid-19 will allow, the same goes for restaurants. And event’s, venues and sports well I think everyone is getting the picture on those. 

The New York Times used  the online research platform SurveyMonkey and found that roughly 60% of the participants said they expected the next 5 years to be characterized by “periods of widespread unemployment or depression.”

A survey from the University of Michigan last week found that consumers’ assessment of current economic conditions had improved modestly in early May, but that their view of the future was just as grim as those surveyed by the New York Times and if you look carefully you are seeing the same from across several media outlets and universities.

As far as consumer confidence goes, that speaks volumes. Even in the financial industry we are seeing news and reports that lean towards the same sentiments. While we can get money in, we are finding it difficult to turn it around and get it back out on the streets. One of the contributing factors is that right now even lenders are skittish about lending to anyone who is not employed or going back to work for the same employer and borrowers have money right now, they are reluctant to spend what they have and they do not need a loan.

In testimony before a Senate committee on Tuesday, Jerome H. Powell, the Federal Reserve chair, and Steven Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, both warned that further job losses were likely and they both can’t seem to agree on policies that will foster growth and repair our damaged economy. 

And to make matters even worse, economists, who once expected a swift, “V-shaped” recovery, now say unemployment is likely to remain elevated for years.

So while many clamor to reopen states and businesses they didn’t really win anything because this is going to be rolling along for quite a number of years. As construction continues, those footing the bill for said construction are going to be left holding a bag of absolute garbage they will be unable to lease, rent or sell for years to come. Commercial Real Estate is going to get hit hard and with little recourse available these guys stand to lose virtually everything. 

It’s time to address the issues of wages not being in line with the cost of living because until that situation becomes resolved we are not going to get ahead of this mess, then we need to look to bring jobs back to America and to stop giving tax breaks to large corporations who move jobs overseas or who simply get a big tax break for employing so many workers in America and take a hard fucking look at what those workers are paid in comparison to those that own or who are on a board of said companies. Why the fuck we would give Amazon, WalMart and many others the tax breaks we do is beyond me, they don’t pay people shit. As for bailouts to any corporation or company, yes they must be held accountable to misusing any said bailout so as to line the pockets of executives and board members.

The point is that working American’s are sick of the abuse of corporations, the banking industry, the airline industry with each bail out they receive. It benefits no workers but does benefit the board and the executives. That is disgusting. 

Every single little guy is taking a proverbial beating financially right now, it’s time the big players did their part and shared in that financial hit. 

Most importantly, regardless of Trump’s pushing and promises, the economy is not coming back anytime soon.
