Progressive Marie Newman ousts conservative Democrat in Illinois House primary

By Associated Press -March 18, 2020 9:34 AM

Newman defeated Rep. Dan Lipinski in Tuesday's primary.

Progressive Marie Newman won a rematch Tuesday with Illinois Rep. Dan Lipinski, unseating one of the most conservative Democrats in Congress in a victory for abortion-rights and women's groups that have targeted the eight-term congressman for years.

Newman topped Lipinski and two other challengers to win the primary in the heavily Democratic Chicago-area district, after losing by about 2 points in 2018.

Lipinski is the first congressional incumbent to lose in a primary race this cycle.

The win all but assures that Newman, 55, will take over the seat that Lipinski's father, Rep. Bill Lipinski, held for nearly three decades before he retired after the 2004 primary and local Democrats chose his son to replace him on the general election ballot.

Fact-checking Trump on coronavirus: No, he didn't predict the pandemic

By Emily Singer -March 18, 2020 10:20 AM

Trump continually lied about his early response to the virus.

As the novel coronavirus spreads and drastic measures to contain the outbreak threaten to cause economic pain for millions of Americans, Donald Trump has spent his time lying and distorting facts, often blaming others for the fallout rather than taking personal responsibility.

Here's a look at his most recent untruths.

Avoid taking ibuprofen for COVID-19 symptoms: WHO

The World Health Organization recommended Tuesday that people suffering COVID-19 symptoms avoid taking ibuprofen, after French officials warned that anti-inflammatory drugs could worsen effects of the virus.

The warning by French Health Minister Olivier Veran followed a recent study in The Lancet medical journal that hypothesised that an enzyme boosted by anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen could facilitate and worsen COVID-19 infections.

Asked about the study, WHO spokesman Christian Lindmeier told reporters in Geneva the UN health agency’s experts were “looking into this to give further guidance.”

“In the meantime, we recommend using rather paracetamol, and do not use ibuprofen as a self-medication. That’s important,” he said.

Ivanka Trump shredded for tone-deaf coronavirus 'photo op':

‘Moms are scrambling for childcare right now'

Published 1 min ago on March 17, 2020
By Tom Boggioni

Tweeting from home where she is reportedly “working” as the coronavirus pandemic paralyzes the country, White House adviser Ivanka Trump shared a picture of herself spending family time with her kids in what appeared to be yet another photo-op by the exceedingly image-conscious daughter of President Donald Trump.

While many families are trapped at home and struggling to make ends meet after businesses were shut down and workers were furloughed, the first daughter shared the pic showing her under billowing linen (described as a tent) explaining to Americans how to have fun during the health crisis.

“Staying home today w/ kids? Plan living room camp out! Throw a bedsheet over some taped together brooms. Plan a menu & ‘pack’ sandwiches, salads (S’mores optional) A fun activity that also brings family together for a meal! Share your ideas & use the hashtag #TogetherApart,” she wrote.

Needless to say, the mention of “#Togetherapart ” was used to bash the first daughter over her father’s immigration policies that have led to thousands of children separated from the parents and held in detention facilities.

How little Trump cares for workers -- and how much he values corporate swamp monsters --

swamp monsters — is now on full display

By David Cay Johnston, DC Report @ Raw Story - Commentary
Published 1 min ago on March 17, 2020

The Trump pandemic response stimulus plan, shown first to Senate Republicans, proposes $100 billion for workers. The thin gruel Trump’s team proposes recalls famous 1980 Boston Globe headline mocking President Jimmy Carter: More Mush from the Wimp.

Donald Trump may have finally realized the coronavirus pandemic is real, but he hasn’t a clue about the price in lost wages, not to mention lost lives, that Americans workers will pay for his lethargic incompetence.

Workers would get maybe $100 billion, corporations $850 billion. Airlines would get $50 billion, half as much as workers, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told Senate Republicans.

While $100 billion sounds like a big number, its bupkis compared to the scope of the job loss problem.

American workers gross about $150 billion per week, IRS Table 1.4 shows.

I really like David Cay Johnson..........................his analyses is simple and to the point................


So maybe instead of “More Mush from the Wimp,” the smart headline would be: Trump Feeds Workers to the Swamp Monsters.


Some conservatives willing to 'sacrifice the elderly' to save the economy from coronavirus: op-ed

Published 1 min ago on March 17, 2020
By Sky Palma

As the international response to the coronavirus ramps up, the inevitable damage to the world economy is unavoidable. While common sense and simple human decency would suggest that stemming the spread of infections at the price of the economy is worth it, there are some, namely conservative voices in America, who don’t exactly agree.

Writing in The Week this Tuesday, Noah Millman cites the example of CNBC host Rick Santelli, who said earlier this month that “maybe we’d be just better off if we gave [coronavirus] to everybody, and then in a month it would be over because the mortality rate of this probably isn’t going to be any different if we did it that way than the long-term picture.” According to Santelli, otherwise we’d be “wreaking havoc on global and domestic economies.”

Millman writes that this same philosophy is what caused the UK to come under an avalanche of criticism for its response to the outbreak. The logic for this line of thinking says that the elderly are not the economy’s most productive citizens, and the economic impact of them dying earlier might even be positive. Also, reserving more urgent medical treatment for the young and economically viable would prevent the health system from being overwhelmed.

“I hope nobody would be comfortable making an argument like that explicitly,” Millman writes. “But it lurks in the background of the all-purpose dismissiveness voiced by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity about the seriousness of the virus (who are following the President’s lead in doing so), or in pieces like this one by Heather Macdonald at the conservative cultural journal The New Criterion.”

These assholes that use the airwaves, ie radio channels, should have there fucking license pulled................this is why the Fairness Doctrine should be brought back, so that these Clear Channel and other oligarphys are broken up...............this mentality that one group produces more than another reminds me of all the Pink Floyd album's................

And these fuckers are making millions .........................

Trump is planning to bail out his corporate pals for pandemic losses --

— and leave taxpayers with the bill: columnist

Published 2 hours ago on March 17, 2020
By Tom Boggioni

In a column for the Daily Beast, political observer David Rothkopf warned American taxpayers that Donald Trump’s obsession with the stock market means that they will be hit with a bill for bailouts that put corporate profitability before the needs of cash-strapped Americans who have lost their livelihoods during the mismanaged coronavirus epidemic response.

With hints of a $50 billion bailout headed to the airline industry that has been hard hit by the almost complete collapse travel, Rothkopf compared the upcoming bailout of various industries to the 2008 bailout that mainly benefited the big banks while Americans were losing their homes.

According to the columnist, the airlines could have had cash on hand to weather the storm if they had used their Trump-era tax savings to buy back stock.

“Yes, the airline industry used 96% of its free cash flow during the last decade on stock buybacks. Yes, that’s tens of billions of dollars they could have used as a safety net to aid them in times like these. But Monday, in the wake of the industry saying they wanted a $50 billion handout from the government to help them get through the current downturn in travel, the President said that the U.S. will back them up as needed,” he wrote before warning, “Cruise-line executives have indicated that they would need help. Energy executives hurt by plummeting oil prices are already getting help through the government’s plan to buy oil for the national strategic reserves .
