About time!! Congressional leftists will likely make a stink, but this needs to be done now and, IMHO, should have been done in January 2017.

Actually, I am very sorry to see this. Not the President's action, but that it was needed. I had hoped there were some people at such a high level of impartial inspection that party affiliation didn't meant nothing. I was disappointed yet again by the persons posing as or governors.

#3 - The writing is on the wall. Trump did say WHO was so wrong and needs to be held accountable. When the dust settles on COVID results in USA, the numbers being predicted by Fauci and Birx and used to halt the economy will not be any where near what actually occurred. "Hold my pouch", as the new saying goes. They will be sacked.

Thursday on MSNBC, “All In,” Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said President Donald Trump could not wipe away the history of his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. Hayes said, “You’ve served in Congress for a long time. You’ve seen different congressional caucuses come and go, different leadership structures, different presidents. Does it strike you, I’m curious how it strikes you to watch Republicans who, during the Obama administration, particularly everything was austerity, where is the money coming from? How are you going to pay for that? Today say hey, we got to load up $250 billion, let’s have a vote on it today. A striking turn about it seems to me.”

Judicial Watch, a watchdog organization, has filed a lawsuit against North Carolina and two of its counties for having nearly one million inactive voters on their voting rolls. On Thursday, Judicial Watch filed the lawsuit against North Carolina, Mecklenburg County, and Guildford County, alleging that state election officials have failed to clean voter rolls in violation of the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. North Carolina, according to its own state data, has nearly one million inactive registered voters on its voter rolls. Likewise, Judicial Watch alleges that Mecklenburg County and Guilford County each have more registered voters on their rolls than the total number of eligible voters in the regions.

The epicenter of the Wuhan coronavirus has been New York for some time now. Despite some postulating that other states would start getting astronomical numbers, that hasn’t panned out. Some on the left who have been pushing the “Fox downplayed the virus” narrative have been saying that the numbers in “Trump states” would reflect that. How offensive, viruses don’t care about your political status. It isn’t political. But “Trump states” are not catching up to New York and there’s likely a variety of reasons why including difference in population density, possibly more notice before it hit and perhaps being locked down earlier in the progression of the disease in their area.
