We are like a D-Day every few days in C-19 deaths or a Titanic every few days ...

... or a 9/11 few days in the number of deaths

"The virus is with us, but we need to live with it," said the White House but many of us will not
"just live with it," because we and or our families and or our friends and or our neighbors
and or our coworkers are not "just living with it." When people die of something they are no longer
"just living with it."

D-Day Deaths 2,501

Of the 4,414 Allied deaths on June 6th, 2,501 were Americans and 1,913 were Allies.

Titanic Deaths 1523

9/11 Deaths 2,977

********

I can't find the exact figures but America is @ something like > 600 C-19 deaths per day.

And this is all on Trump and his enablers. This shit should never have happened. This would not have happened
with Sec. of State Hillary Clinton as President.

"The virus is with us, but we need to live with it," is how one official said the administration plans to message on the pandemic.

South Dakota governor, exposed to virus, joined Trump on jet

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem accompanied President Donald Trump to Washington aboard Air Force One on Friday night despite having had close contact with Trump’s son’s girlfriend, who had tested positive for the coronavirus.

Trump has been in a position all along to encounter a virus that spreads from people who don’t feel sick, such as Noem, who had interacted closely at a campaign fundraiser with Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, who turned out to be sick.

Noem's spokesperson, Maggie Seidel, says the Republican governor didn't wear a mask on the plane and chatted with the president as the flight returned to Washington, D.C.

Repost from 2/28/20 ... Health secretary says "window is closing" to get coronavirus under control

Health secretary says "window is closing" to get coronavirus under control

Source: Axios

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar warned on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that the "window is closing" for the U.S. to take action and get the coronavirus under control, calling the current state of the outbreak a "very, very serious situation."

Why it matters: Azar's rhetoric stands in stark contrast to that of President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, who claimed at a press briefing on Friday that the U.S. has "flattened the curve" and that much of the surge in new cases is attributable to an increase in testing.

Throughout the pandemic, health officials on the White House coronavirus task force have sounded the alarm about the seriousness of the crisis while political figures like Trump have sought to paint a rosier picture.

The reality is that the U.S. today is getting closer to the worst-case scenario envisioned in the spring — a nationwide crisis, made worse by a vacuum of political leadership, threatening to overwhelm hospitals and spread out of control.

Report warned of coronavirus crisis in November "Analysts concluded it could be a cataclysmic event"

Intelligence report warned of coronavirus crisis as early as November: Sources
"Analysts concluded it could be a cataclysmic event," a source said.

AKA Trump knew about "it" and did nothing except that he and Kush-Turd invested in HCQ (hydroxycholorquine)
and their own C-19 test kits instead of using the one from the W.H.O..
******

As far back as late November, U.S. intelligence officials were warning that a contagion was sweeping through China’s Wuhan region, changing the patterns of life and business and posing a threat to the population, according to four sources briefed on the secret reporting.

The report was the result of analysis of wire and computer intercepts, coupled with satellite images. It raised alarms because an out-of-control disease would pose a serious threat to U.S. forces in Asia -- forces that depend on the NCMI’s work. And it paints a picture of an American government that could have ramped up mitigation and containment efforts far earlier to prepare for a crisis poised to come home.

"Analysts concluded it could be a cataclysmic event," one of the sources said of the NCMI’s report. "It was then briefed multiple times to" the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff and the White House. Wednesday night, the Pentagon issued a statement denying the "product/assessment" existed.

snip

"As a matter of practice the National Center for Medical Intelligence does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters. However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence/release of a National Center for Medical Intelligence Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists," the statement said.

The White House National Security Council and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence declined to comment.

Some of Carl Reiner's last words

Edit .... I just noticed that these tweets are already up on the home page.


As I arose at 7:30 this morning, I was saddened to relive the day that led up to the election of a bankrupted and corrupt businessman who had no qualifications to be the leader of any country in the civilized world...

... At the same time, Hillary Clinton, who had all the needed qualifications to lead our beloved nation, had received 3 million more popular votes than our Russian-installed puppet president.

BTW the Clinton Foundation through the use of science, communication, and global leadership has kept >10,000 HIV + people from getting full blown AIDs. Gee, we couldn’t use that skill now could we?

Let's be real. Is Trump trying to kill as many people as possible? No other way to look @ it.

Despite a staggering rise in the the #s of cases of C-19 Trump has continued to hold
large public events where people do not socially distance themselves and the vast
majority do not wear masks.

He has held rallies in Tulsa, Phoenix Arizona, last night @ Mt. Rushmore, and tonight
a second 4th of July fireworks display in Washington D.C.. Trump knows what he is doing
and that is to get sick as many people as possible even though those people are his
supporters. I might be wrong but I don't think so.

Rob Reiner's 4th of July message: Time for Donald Trump to exit the White House and enter Prison.

https://twitter.com/robreiner/status/1278314260594962437

Carl and Estelle Reiner did a good job.

He should be gone by noon today

He should be gone by noon today

Trump knew that Vlad/Russia was paying to kill Americans, he did nothing about it, and when the
Russian plot was discovered he and the White House said that he was never briefed "on it" even though he had been briefed "on it.”

Trump should be gone by noon today because when our intel found out that Russia was once again
interfering with our elections in 2020 by working to help Bernie Sanders Trump fired the intel
people who discovered the Russian malfeasance instead of going after Russia. He is a Russian agent.

Trump should be gone by noon today because in November of 2019 when he and Kushner found out about the
coming C-19 Pandemic they went to make money off of it by selling their HCQ snake oil, and their own
C-19 test kits, and they sent 18 tons of P.P.E. to China in Jan. & Feb. of 2020. (Because they owe China lots
of money) All of these acts killed people and allowed the deadly disease to spread out of control. We are
something like 4% of the world’s population and we now have > 25% of the world’s cases of C-19.



Russia bounty intelligence 'may have been' in Trump brief but wasn't deemed 'actionable'

Russia bounty intelligence 'may have been' in Trump brief but wasn't deemed 'actionable,' senior Republican says

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration told Republican members of Congress on Monday that intelligence about potential Russian bounties may have been included at some point in the President's Daily Brief but not conveyed to President Donald Trump in a formal threat briefing because it wasn't yet "actionable," the top Republican on the House Foreign Affairs Committee said.

"I believe it may have been" in the written President's Daily Brief, or PDB, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said in an interview.

Referring to the president, McCaul said: "I think the way the process works is that he gets briefed about three times a week on sort of actionable, credible items. And the decision was made that this was not at that point in time a credible, actionable piece of intelligence. And if at any point it did, it would be raised to his attention."
