A professor at a New Jersey university is blaming President Trump and his supporters for the impact of the coronavirus outbreak, claiming it’s their fault African-Americans have been dying at a disproportionate rate. “F--- each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame,” was among the comments – several of them containing profanity -- posted on Twitter this week by Brittney Cooper, an associate professor in the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Rutgers University. In another post, Cooper wrote that she and other African-Americans suspect that recent efforts to reopen the country following stay-at-home orders were “all about a gross necropolitical calculation

And how does somebody with that foul of a thought process get to be a "professor" of ANYTHING?? Sounds like the "Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies" at Rutgers University needs to hit the chopping block when universities finally open back up in the fall!! That poison has NO place in universities, especially state colleges like Rutgers!!

And some will use their hideous delusions as a reason to harm people in revenge for things that aren't even real. THIS is what the Dems WANT, this is their desired outcome from their daily efforts.

Stacey Abrams's embarrassing
campaign for the vice presidency

Posted by Pluperfect 5/4/2020 4:37:52 AM Post Reply
No one has ever wanted to be vice president as much as Stacey Abrams. The Georgia Democrat, best known for her failed gubernatorial candidacy in 2018, has launched a full-fledged campaign for the vice presidency in recent weeks, telling every news channel that will book her why she thinks she’s cut out for the job. And in doing so, Abrams has proved why she’s not. Abrams’s media tour began back in February when Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, first mentioned his campaign was looking at Abrams. When asked if she’d want the job, Abrams didn’t shy away.

Tara Reade claims to be a loyal Democrat, and she might be doing her party a huge favor. Her accusation that Joe Biden sexually assaulted her in 1993 gives Democrats a plausible excuse to ditch the former vice president as their 2020 presidential nominee, thus sparing themselves a likely disaster in the fall campaign. To put it as bluntly as possible, Biden’s mental decline is so obvious as to be an embarrassment, as he stumbles in every interview, even with the most friendly journalists. Democrats and their friends in the media attempting to push Biden’s candidacy forward resemble nothing so much as the cast

A new CBS News poll has Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren running away with the vice-presidential nominating sweepstakes among rank-and-file Democrats. But big donors to the party are pressuring Joe Biden not to take her on, believing, “He would lose the election.” It’s one more indication just how far left the Democratic Party has lurched since 2016. Bernie Sanders, Warren, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, and the “Squad” have brought radical, transformative, socialist ideas into the mainstream of the party, endangering the Biden’s electability.

But when his latest documentary opened on Earth Day to attacks from fellow leftists, including calls for censorship, it got my attention. After all, one of my favorite scenes in “Lord of the Rings” is watching the orcs fight among themselves. So I grabbed a bowl of popcorn and sat down to watch “Planet of the Humans.” Director Moore’s latest documentary starts with electric cars, the vehicle of choice for the environmentally conscious. As GM proudly unveils its battery-powered Volt, his narrator innocently asks the executive in charge where the electricity to recharge it comes from.

It is the very beginning of May. The Democratic National Convention is scheduled for August. The general election is in November. Dozens of states and territories have not yet held their primary elections. And Joe Biden is still the presumptive Democratic nominee for the presidency, not the nominee. It is important to remember that, because, as New York’s Sarah Jones writes: “Tara Reade is difficult to dismiss.” Since she publicly accused her former boss, Joe Biden, of sexual assault, multiple outlets reported corroborative evidence that supports her account. She says she told her brother; The New York Times and The Washington Post confirmed that she did.

“I’m saying unequivocally: It never, never happened.” In an appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe today, former Vice President Joe Biden firmly denied allegations from a former Senate aide, Tara Reade, that he sexually assaulted her in 1993. In the month since Reade made her allegation in a podcast interview, the press has slowly begun to cover the story. Most recently, Business Insider interviewed Reade’s former neighbor, who says Reade told her about the alleged attack in the mid-’90s. Although Biden’s aides have aggressively challenged Reade’s claims, today was the first time Biden has responded directly to them. Biden’s strategy is clear. He maintains that the assault never happened.

The first year of the Trump presidency was a year of calibration for the nation's top journalists, who learned to keep up with a politician who revels in exhausting the press corps, launching news cycles with early-morning, late night and weekend tweets. The next two years, 2018 and 2019, were even more exhausting, as journalists scrambled to cover government shutdowns, congressional hearings, a Supreme Court nomination, the president's flirtation with North Korea, the Mueller Report and impeachment. At this point, journalists — print, online and television — are used to the Trump pace. Weekends are gone. Work-life balance is not a thing.

The press has been gushing about the performance of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo for weeks. The media often compares Cuomo’s “decisive” response to the coronavirus pandemic to the president, and guess who always wins? Whether it’s good PR from the governor’s office or just the media worshipping a liberal who says mean things about Donald Trump, it hardly matters. What matters is results. And in that department, Andrew Cuomo has been a miserable failure — using several metrics. And it’s not just the numbers. The panicky, sometimes hysterical New York governor began whining about the federal government (specifically the president) not doing anything to help the states with getting medical supplies.

The secularist prejudices of the left remain on open display during the coronavirus crisis. They continue to produce bizarre policies: closed churches, banned funerals and weddings, even as abortion mills keep grinding and jails spring prisoners. Protecting the First Amendment, we’re told, is above the “pay grade” of governors — the same line, by the way, Barack Obama once used after he was asked about the humanity of unborn children. One might have thought New York City mayor Bill de Blasio would be too busy to indulge these secularist prejudices. But he is not. With special relish, he has sternly warned Jews and Christians against assembling.

When the postmortem is done on the media’s coverage of COVID-19 (and it will be), it will be clear that the virus was no Black Plague — it’s not even the flu on a bad year. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday. That’s not good. But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished. And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago: First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

Never was former Vice President Joe Biden the 2020 dream. He promised electability and familiarity, which turned out to be good enough for a plurality of Democratic voters in the early primaries. But now that every other Democratic contender has dropped out and dutifully lined up behind the presumptive nominee, that choice might be sitting less comfortably. Biden is campaigning from his basement, giving interviews in which he occasionally moves past gaffes into total incoherence, raising questions about his mental fitness. Worst of all, evidence for a sexual assault allegation against him begins to mount.

The study, which has not been peer-reviewed, notes sun-starved “Nordic” countries are among the most at risk. “We believe that we can advise vitamin D supplementation to protect against SARS-CoV2 infection,” the

Claims that the U.S. government helped fund research into coronaviruses began to spread after the Daily Mail reported it obtained documents, which “show the Wuhan Institute of Virology undertook coronavirus experiments on mammals captured more than 1,000 miles away in Yunnan – funded by a $3.7 million grant from the US government.” The report gained traction on social media, while the claim was repeated by high-profile political figures.
