Are hour plus adventure at Costco.........and its a Hoax by the orange "guy" and his enablers.......

As we drove up we noticed that there pallets along the sidewalk in the street, you had to enter where the pallets were and walk along the side walk think of cattle being herded into pen, you were not allowed to go through the double doors in the center of the building or freely like we normally were able to do..............
Then before you could grab your cart, it was wiped down. The carts were not inside the building, they were along the pipe barricades, so that the employee had to wipe the cart down, with the hand grab pointing towards the building, so the attendant could wipe the bar.
Lots and lots of employees performing this function, guiding and wiping
Then when you walked into the store, it was getting packed at 10:45 AM, there is no toilet paper, they did not have Cheerios, and I happened to ask the back room manager when they would be in, she said we have them on the truck and are unloading now, she took off the plastic from the pallet of Cheerios and said here you go, you are allowed only two packages...........no hand wipes, and bottle of water was limited to two packages
After getting our supplies, we got in line, the line was three quarters the length of the building, there were four lines, one on each outside row and two in the middle.
There was manager at the cashier stations directing the customer to the cashiers, that was set up every other station being open.
The food court was shut down where they use to have the benches, they were completely gone...............no social contacting and to also prevent congestion, and two people to check the receipts.
Then we went to the gas station..................no wait......................

Trump's DOJ scrambles to crack down as coronavirus cure scams explode

On Monday, Attorney General William Barr issued a directive ordering federal prosecutors to go after coronavirus “cure” scams being peddled around the country.


Sarah N. Lynch

NEW from @TheJusticeDept AG Barr has issued a new directive to all U.S. Attorneys telling them to prioritize investigating scam artists who are seeking to profit from the #coronavirus pandemic. "The pandemic is dangerous enough without wrongdoers seeking to profit," he wrote.

As Americans have upended their lives and isolated themselves in fear of the pandemic, the snake-oil market has thrived.

In February, right-wing televangelist Jim Bakker promoted a solution of colloidal silver as a cure to coronavirus, which prompted Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt to seek a restraining order from a federal judge. Meanwhile, conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been promoting his special brand of toothpaste as a cure for coronavirus, which has earned him a warning of legal action from New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Well Facebook is at it again...........Facebook will remove misinformation from politicians --

but only if it is about coronavirus

Facebook has historically struggled with requests to remove false information from their social network. In particular, they have furiously resisted any call to remove political ads that contain verifiable lies.

But in a new interview with Bloomberg Technology, Facebook’s chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg made clear the company will take a much more hardline stance when it comes to fake news about coronavirus:

Trump is livid at Jared Kushner over the 'inept and flat-footed' coronavirus response: report

Published 2 hours ago on March 16, 2020

By Bob Brigham

President Donald Trump has lost faith in his son-and-law and senior advisor, according to a bombshell new report by Gabriel Sherman in Vanity Fair.

“With the markets in free fall despite emergency action by the Fed over the weekend, Trump is waking up to the reality that’s been clear to everyone: Coronavirus poses a once-in-a-hundred-years threat to the country,” Vanity Fair reported. “As Trump processes the stakes facing the country—and his presidency—he’s also lashing out at advisers, whom he blames for the White House’s inept and flat-footed response. Sources say a principal target of his anger is Jared Kushner.”

AG Bill Barr moves to drop charges against 'Putin's Chef': DOJ claims the reason why is classified

Published 1 min ago on March 16, 2020
By Bob Brigham

President Donald Trump was faced a special counsel investigation into his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and was impeached over strengthen Russia’s position in the region, which is why a decision by Attorney General William Barr will likely garner much criticism.

“The U.S. Justice Department moved Monday to drop its two-year-long prosecution of a Russian company charged with orchestrating a social media campaign to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” The Washington Post reported Monday evening. “The stunning reversal came weeks before the case — a spin off of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s probe — was to go to trial.”

The filing came after the end of business hours.

"Assistants to U.S. Attorney Timothy Shea of Washington D.C., and Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers cited an unspecified ‘change in the balance of the government’s proof due to a classification determination, according to a nine-page filing accompanied by facts under seal,” the newspaper explained.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing widespread criticism for highlighting his “urgent” priorities despite sending senators home for an extended weekend break during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Kentucky Republican tweeted out a list of those priorities — including a coronavirus relief package — Sunday evening from his iPhone, and he was met with condemnation.

Trump-loving megachurch begs followers to pack into the pews amid coronavirus outbreak:

‘If we die — we die for Christ’

Published 1 min ago on March 16, 2020
By Sky Palma

A South Florida megachurch pastor wants his congregation to know even though the coronavirus continues to spread, they should be coming to church to worship anyway, and any fear they might have of packed spaces is coming from a “demonic spirit.”

“Do you believe God would bring his people to his house to be contagious with the virus? Of course not,” pastor Guillermo Maldonado said, according to the Miami Herald. But as the Herald points out, Maldonado’s service wasn’t as packed as it usually is.

“This service is usually packed. So now they’re home in a cave afraid of the virus, that you want to transmit the virus,” Maldonado lamented. “If we die, we die for Christ. If we live, we live for Christ, so what do you lose?”

Other places of worship in the area have followed the advice of health officials to avoid mass gatherings of “over 250” in an effort to stem the infection rates and have shuttered services. But Maldonado seems to have the opposite intent. In a now-deleted Facebook post, he warned his followers that they have two choices — “Come in and receive your healing, or stay home and miss out.”

Ex-Wisconsin sheriff goes off in expletive-laden rant about coronavirus as an ‘orchestrated attempt to destroy capitalism’
Published 10 hours ago on March 15, 2020
By Sarah K. Burris

Former Milwaukee County, Wisconsin sheriff David Clarke Jr. pushed a new coronavirus conspiracy theory on Twitter Sunday.

According to the right-wing pundit, “it is now evident that this is an orchestrated attempt to destroy CAPITALISM. First sports, then schools and finally commercial businesses. Time to RISE UP and push back. Bars and restaurants should defy the order. Let people decide if they want to go out.”

His comment came in response to a story from Axios about states ordering restaurants and bars to close except for delivery and takeout.

The former sheriff then went off on an expletive-laden rant.

U.S. stock-index futures trigger 'limit-down' rule. Here's how limit rules and stock-market circuit

U.S. stock-index futures trigger limit-up and limit-down rules when they see 5% price swings

U.S. stocks have been experiencing some of the most volatile trading in the past decade in recent weeks and that trend continued into Monday morning after the Federal Reserve slashed rates to nearly 0% and unveiled some of the most dramatic stimulus measures since the 2008 financial crisis to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

The three main stock-index futures contracts hit daily limit-down rules for the third time this week and circuit breaker rules, intended to prevent panic selling, are likely to kick in at Monday’s open.

Futures for the most-active Dow Jones Industrial Average YMH20, -7.908% for March shed 1,041 points, to 21,798, while S&P 500 futures ESH20, -9.381% and Nasdaq-100 futures NQH20, -7.990% were all trading limit-down.

Gauged by exchange-traded funds that track those indexes, stocks are in for a powerful drop. The SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust DIA, -10.629% was down about 10% in premarket trade, the SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY, -10.637% was 9.6% lower and the Invesco QQQ Trust Series QQQ, -9.988%, which tracks the Nasdaq-100, was 8.7% lower.
