Tin Foil Hat Time once again!

Okay. You know how Trump always uses his FEAR-O-METER to point him in a political direction?

What does he fear the most, based upon his behavior?

I think that answer rests with fear of exposure about something. The more he fears exposure, the more he demands secrecy.

Of what we know about him, we know that Trump is absolute about his commitment to hide his tax returns and a full financial disclosure.

What would make Trump flinch? What would make him "obey a command"? It would be a person who holds Trump's most personal, and vulnerable information. The information is Trump's tax and financial records. And that person is Putin.

By now, we should be estimating that Putin's army of computer hackers have breached the security barriers of the IRS and copied Trump's IRS documents, enough of them to have Trump shitting donuts. Now that makes a little bit of sense. Trump's absolute hold on his tax records means that they are the most treasured and private documents he has. What's also true is that they hold information that's criminal in nature. (Just a humble opinion...) And that's why they're the perfect blackmail material. So why wouldn't Putin hold those records over Trump's head and dare him to jump for them?

It's all crazy. Nothing makes sense.

So I've a daughter and her small family living with us. She works in health care. She does P.T. She can't get a CV-19 test to be assured that she's not spreading the virus when she's working and seeing patients. Her supervisor for a big health care outfit can't authorize for her to get a test, even though a few weeks ago she was running a fluctuating fever with a cough and couldn't work for over a week because of her cold symptoms, not because of CV-19.

About four weeks ago I noticed that I'd lost my sense of smell. Couldn't smell anything, and food didn't taste as it should. It was odd. I love to use my sense of smell and appreciate it all the time. Couldn't smell anything. I also got a "cold" with a cough and at one time, a fairly mild fever. I've come to understand that one of the early symptoms of CV-19 is the temporary loss of smell and taste.

Now, my wife is down with a fever and she's bedridden. Her fever fluctuates, but got as high as 101.7. She has extraordinary body aches and for three days now has no interest in being mobile.

During a telephone conference with her doctor this morning, we were virtually begging for a CV-19 test. The doc says that it's likely that both my daughter had the virus and my wife presently has it. (We still don't know the probability that anyone who presumably has the virus can get infected again.) But at the same time, the doc says that her symptoms AREN'T SEVERE ENOUGH TO WARRANT A TEST.

WHAT??? This is when it gets crazy. I could be an active carrier. My daughter could be an active carrier. My son-in-law could be an active carrier. My wife can, right now, be experiencing symptoms of CV-19. And WE CAN'T GET TESTED! No one knows what she has and she can't find out! Because there's a severe shortage of tests, those who should get tested cannot, and those who should get tested ARE spreading the virus. They are leaving CV-19 everywhere, especially if they are asymptomatic.

Yeah, quarantine this, quarantine that. I get it. But being quarantined means that we're acting on a hunch. WE DON'T KNOW AND WE WON'T FIND OUT, unless me, my wife, my daughter, or my son-in-law get so sick, we need to go to the ER. If one of us goes to the ER and end up being hospitalized, we have about a 40-50% chance of needing a ventilator. And then the odds of the virus becoming fatal or causing severe, permanent damage rises dramatically.

So for now, we have to assume the worst and my wife has to isolate, my daughter has to assume that she can get it even if she already had it, and I have to do the same.

So WE CANNOT GET A DIAGNOSIS (This is still difficult to believe.) because the feds didn't order the tests to be manufactured three or four months ago. Why didn't they order them when the White House knew about the pandemic predictions in January? Because Trump was trying to parlay the spread of the pandemic into a money making opportunity and a political victory. I've written this over and over: Trump doesn't care who he pains or kills, as long as he benefits from it. It's a statement of plain fact.

My anger at Trump is normally on the cusp of being out of control. I've followed this wave of evil since the very beginning. But this personal family illness is different. And it's what MILLIONS of people are now experiencing, as CV-19 has touched millions who are either personally infected, or have family members or close friends who are infected.

Trump's evil has touched me personally. It's come all the way down to my level. It's TRICKLE-DOWN EVIL.

Now we have to live with a mass killer who is running the nation. He's acting like a Dictator who treats death like a business opportunity. No one can stop him. No one wants to stop him.

Tin Foil Hat Conspiracy Time.

Okay. I'm listening to Maddow and it's striking me how reluctant the Trump Administration is on managing and releasing PPE and ventilators to the people who need it. It's exclusively Trump's decision-making. So what do we know about Trump that might make this murderous policy have a rationale?

We know that Trump only thinks about money. Remember Eric saying this about his father shortly after the inauguration? The quote was actually made, if memory serves, during the 2016 campaign. Trump only thinks about the money. For Trump, reluctance disappears when money moves. And Trump got the money to move at the expense of deaths.

So where is money being exchanged? We now know that the White House has established a system of distribution that includes a small cadre of middlemen. The feds distribute to the middlemen who turn around and sell those PPEs to the states and hospitals for around TEN TIMES the price per unit.

What kind of arrangements did Trump make with these middlemen? Will we ever know? These are sweetheart deals. It's very easy money, and it's tons of money. Trump is allowing our tax dollars to bleed into the middlemen's pockets at the expense of dying CV-19 patients. If they weren't buddies with Trump, they are now. Some states get outbid for the PPEs. So what happens in those states? They get stiffed. We haven't seen it yet because it's still early, but states will have to decide who dies because Trump wants business as usual.

In the end, we have Trump killing off tens or even hundreds of thousands of sick people so that "business" can be conducted. And there's a sociopathic element to this kind of business, led by the sociopathic commander in chief.

News outlets haven't described the CV-19 outcomes in this way, but there have been plenty of hints. Politicians, medical experts, and ordinary people have angrily observed the "inefficiency" in getting PPEs to those who need it, and fault the Trump Administration for doing so, but stop short of speculating that it's purposeful. But now we know something about the flow of money. And that makes a difference.

So, does this make sense?

It doesn't make sense if we assume that Trump has morals, or that he has limits to his amoral behavior. Have we ever seen him exercise a moral decision? Why would he have limits? All through his life, he's had opportunities aplenty to show that he abandoned moral turpitude, or, to put it differently, acted in a principled way. Why would Trump change now? So it just makes sense that Trump is intentionally cutting off life saving equipment for both patients and health care workers for business purposes.

We WILL find out that these "arrangements" for the price gouging of PPEs is benefiting Trump in some way.
