Original Article

Wednesday, former Secretary of State John Kerry called into question President Donald Trump’s leadership during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Instead of leading, Kerry suggested on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that Trump is “playing out an election strategy” and “attacking governors” and members of the media in a way he said he has never seen by a president. “Look, the truth is, and everybody in America, I think, is beginning to come to understand that this president is not leading now, he’s playing out an election strategy,” Kerry stated. “He’s more focused on getting the economy moving before all the experts say you ought to be putting people back together in close quarters again

And Nancy Pelosi is not playing out the Democratic Party's election plan by calling for mail-in voting? And if we don't open the economy back soon, we aren't going to have one. But that seems to have been the plan all along.

Speaking of political strategy, Lurch wants his name fresh in the public eye in case Joe does a complete public meltdown. Bring it on, Lurch, we haven't forgotten the folk singers or the bunny suit.

I just read that the governor of Virginia broke his own shut down laws. He flew by private plane to NC beach to his summer cottage and used private drivers to drive him from the airport to his cottage. He been going often. I would be willing to bet the other Democrat governors are doing the same while they lay down the law to the citizens even if they are walking in the park alone. Something is really wrong with this picture!

Kerry is wrong again. President Trump has not been attacking the so-called mainstream (liberal) media or the liberal Democrat Governors, what he has been doing is effectively counterpunching those political entities attempts to attack him as they have been doing 24/7 since Trump was elected. Liberal Democrats like Kerry don’t like that. If Trump does not defend himself and his political policies nobody else will, obviously he does not want to end up being another G.W. Bush type who the liberal Democrats and their media minions kicked into the gutter for years, without Bush making any effective defense of his personal or professional reputations.

Kerry is just kissing up to Joe The Schmoe. Those two have a serious gay attraction and a man crush on each other. They are so alike it’s uncanny. Trump Deranged psychotic, left wing dingbats, intellectually bankrupt, virtueless, selfish and selfcentered, narcissistic, and both drunken alcoholics. A perfect matched set.

This is the Swift Boat senator, right? The guy who claimed a Purple Heart for acquiring an impacted grain of rice in his buttocks (literally the truth as I recall)? The guy who purportedly tossed that decoration and a handful of other combat decorations over the White House fence as a publicity stunt protesting the Viet Nam conflict, which were revealed later to not even be his decorations? Whose comrades in arms— in excess of a dozen, with a single exception— seriously described him as a poor officer (to say the least)? THAT guy? Lol. Right. A JFK profile in courage without Sorenson’s English style.

I would wear any criticism from this closet communist with pride. Then I would say there is a growing list of crimes committed by Kerry's Department of State, as well as the freelance contacts Kerry made with hostile governments. Finally I'd suggest Kerry find a really good lawyer to keep him out of GITMO.

A New Jersey driver crashed head-on into a pole — after passing out from wearing an N95 mask for hours, police said Friday. Lincoln Park police believe that the driver, who was not named, lost consciousness while behind the wheel Thursday from lack of oxygen and breathing in excessive carbon dioxide thanks to the mask, the department wrote on Facebook. “The LPPD responded to a lone occupant single car motor vehicle crash yesterday. The crash is believed to have resulted from the driver wearing an N95 mask for several hours and subsequently passing out behind the wheel due to insufficient oxygen intake/excessive carbon dioxide intake,” the cops wrote.

You’d think the left would have learned from its boneheaded mistakes after the astounding presidential victory of Donald Trump in 2016. And boy, would you be wrong. From Kentucky to Oregon, protests have been staged in recent days by angry Americans sick to distraction of corona lockdown. Wielding placards and scowls, some of them riding safely in cars — and a tiny few brandishing firearms — they’ve converged on state capitals and public spaces from Michigan to Montana and New Hampshire to Pennsylvania, anxious to achieve one common goal: getting back to work. The reaction from the elite, mainly white, leftist media has been stunning, depressing. And familiar.
Sorry, Facebook: Announcing a protest isn’t

A scattering of protests aimed at coronavirus lockdowns erupted across the country, sparked not by social-distancing guidelines but by politicians’ unilaterally dictating what products citizens are permitted to purchase in box stores, attempting to shut down drive-in Masses at churches and closing parks and beaches, among other ill-conceived and gratuitous intrusions. So naturally, Facebook decided to censor organizers’ posts. Like any protest movement, this one is a mixed bag: Some of the protesters are acting in bad faith, some are idealists and some are merely terrified of losing their livelihoods, their homes and their careers while waiting around for a government check that might never come.

On Fox News Friday night, Michigan State Representative Karen Whitsett told Tucker Carlson that text messages she's been receiving from Governor Whitmer have not been pleasant ever since the Democratic state lawmaker credited President Trump for her personal recovery from the Wuhan coronavirus. The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery. Tucker Carlson asked Whitsett if the governor ever called the representative to simply say, "I'm so glad you didn't die?" "Actually, it was not as pleasant as that," Rep. Whitsett began, "and the text messages that we have had since then have not been as pleasant as well."

U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez, who was appointed by President George W. Bush, sided with the California Rifle & Pistol Association, which sued to block the law. “The experiment has been tried. The casualties have been counted. California’s new ammunition background check law misfires and the Second Amendment rights of California citizens have been gravely injured,” Benitez wrote in a 120-page opinion, The Associated Press reported.

CNN political commentator Chris Cuomo’s wife, Cristina, is facing criticism from practically everybody — except anybody at CNN, of course — for promoting a “crackpot coronavirus treatment” that’s been dubbed “dangerous.” In a post to her blog reportedly published this week, the left-wing host’s wife listed the pseudoscientific holistic methods she’s been employing to treat her coronavirus infection. One of those methods involves bathing in Clorox bleach. “At the direction of my doctor, Dr. Linda Lancaster, who reminded me that this is an oxygen-depleting virus, she suggested I take a bath and add a nominal amount of bleach. Yes, bleach,” the post reads. Lancaster is not a doctor.

Trump derangement syndrome (TDS), according to Urban Dictionary, is a “Contagious, debilitating psychiatric disorder manifesting in a precipitous decline in intellectual and emotional stability and resilience.” The contagious and debilitating bits sound much like the Wuhan flu. TDS, also known in infectious disease circles as Covfefe-45, not to be confused with Covid-19, has mutated into another form, namely hydroxychloroquine derangement syndrome, referring to the abject media hysteria over the innocuous prescription medication. Attorney General William Barr even noticed and, “Claimed that the Washington press corps is on a ‘jihad’ against President Trump over his promotion of an anti-malaria drug to treat the novel coronavirus.”

Earlier this week, Fox News’ Brit Hume suggested it’s time we consider lockdown policy as possibly being “a colossal public policy calamity.” Speaking to Shannon Bream on Fox airwaves Tuesday night, Hume discussed the disastrous side effects of stay-at-home orders adopted by nearly every state in the union, highlighting the irreparable harm done to the folks’ livelihood and savings, and the social toll the isolation has caused, particularly for children, who are at extremely low risk for novel coronavirus. To boot, emphasized Hume, it’s unclear how effective lockdown policies have actually been, especially when compared to other, more sustainable mitigation strategies.

The Empire State, which has been hit harder by the coronavirus pandemic than anywhere else in the U.S., currently forecasts $61 billion in total lost revenue between fiscal years 2021 and 2024, Cuomo said. “What you’re going to see is what we expected,” Cuomo said at a press conference, referring to the state’s assessment of the virus’ economic impact.

As soon as it became clear that former vice president Joe Biden would be the Democratic Party's nominee for president, Abrams embarked on a media tour to make the case for why Stacey Abrams,

The lawmaker now faces a censure from her Democratic colleagues for crediting the president for her recovery.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $250 million to the battle and Gates has been speaking up regularly to influence its direction — something that has sometimes placed him at odds with President Donald Trump and made him a target of right-wing pundits and conspiracy theorists. Gates’ memo barely mentions politics,
