As Americans continue to emerge from quarantines and stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump declared this week that "we are not closing our country” if the United States is hit by a second wave of infections. But in an interview on ABC's "This Week" Sunday, one of the leaders of the government's response to the virus, said it is "difficult to tell" whether such a step may be necessary. "We're trying to understand during this period of coming out of the closure: How do we maintain openness and safety? And I think that's what we're going to

We never *needed* to close in the first place. Maybe NYC, but not the rest of us.

I say nix on Brix. This woman should take one of her many scarves and wrap it around her mouth. Not as a mask but as a gag. While she is at it she should give one of her scarves to Dr. Fauci for the same reason. Enough of these non-expert "Experts" who bear most of the blame for the financial trouble we are experiencing.

Isn’t she and Fauci the reason we shut down to begin with? Better not happen again or the President will have to deal with an unwilling nation. This should never have happened anyway. Huge mistake.

I agree with # 1. In fact, I think if we'd never quarantined this would be over with. Why this one virus should be the hill the government chose to die on is beyond me. Obama brought Ebola patients here, we've had AIDS for decades and the flu kills tens of thousands every year. No whisper of quarantine for them.

These interviews with Birx or Fauci are now 100% orchestrated to get them talking in the confusing, having it all ways, CYA ways that DC bureaucrats expertly employ to muddy issues. Neither she not Fauci have a single new thing to add that is useful to the public at this point. WE know what is going on and WE are going back to church, family gatherings and work.

Just another example of the so-called mainstream (liberal) media splitting hairs between what President Trump said in one setting and what one of his advisors said in another setting. The media’s objective in doing that is to confuse and to panic the general public, as the Democrats and the fake media want to keep as many people as possible scared, and the country shutdown through the election which is not going to happen.

Time for her to shut up. Likewise Fauci. They blew this call and blew the whole thing out of proportion from day one. As a result, millions of people have suffered unnecessarily, and practical successes in managing this disease have been ignored. If you see an "expert" still talking about lockdowns, tell them to shut up. They're idiots.

I really wish I could believe 'it's never going to happen again' but ........................... From something I read earlier, there was a statement, paraphrasing here, that essentially said - They have tasted the power and witnessed how quickly and easily the masses can be cowered into giving up their freedoms, and to control literally everything in your life easily. Roads, churches,sporting events, travel of every kind to any place by any means, restaurants, any and all gathering places including open fields, beaches, shops, essentially YOUR LIFE, top to bottom and end to end with not so much as a whimper of protest, at lease not initially. All of this happened while people cheered from coast to coast and border to border that we were 'doing to the right thing' !!!! 'They' are not going to give up that power easily, quickly or soon. I fear that this will happen again and again and again. The 'reason(s)' for the loss of freedoms and house arrest and Lord only knows what other restriction will be different each time but the results and impact will be the same if not worse than this time.

If Fauci is realizing all of a sudden that he and Birx went too far, she needs to grab a clue herself. I loathe her and her phony passive aggressive concern. She is only concerned with power.

Walking in, I heard a guy say, "HMM, must be a record...more than 5 people without masks." We struck up a conversation; he was of the same opinion as me. His last remark was, "I won't live in fear."

Police killing in Minneapolis
puts new scrutiny on Biden pick

The killing by police of an unarmed black man in Minneapolis has aimed the national spotlight at systemic racism in America. It’s also added pressure on Joe Biden to pick an African-American running mate. George Floyd’s death after a police officer put his knee to Floyd’s neck while pinning him to the ground closely followed the killing of another black man, 25-year-old Ahmaud Arbery, who was fatally shot while jogging in Georgia after a confrontation with two white men. Both incidents broke through the coronavirus pandemic to make headlines and capture national attention, while underscoring a growing sense that there

Around 1:30 a.m., Frey addressed a city that is enduring escalating protests that have lasted for the past three days in response to the death of George Floyd. Four Minneapolis Police officers were fired in the incident that happened Monday night. Thursday night's protests accelerated in violence in comparison to the previous two, with the Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct set on fire, where all the fired officers were from. During his address to media, Frey reflected on the bigger meaning of the protests. "Brick

George Floyd's death in police custody is renewing criticism of Sen. Amy Klobuchar's (D-Minn.) prosecutorial record. Before she became a senator and a top contender for former Vice President Joe Biden's vice presidential spot, Klobuchar spent eight years as the Hennepin County attorney, in charge of prosecution for Minneapolis. And while in that position, Klobuchar declined to prosecute multiple police officers cited for excessive force, including the officer who kneeled on Floyd's neck as he protested, The Guardian reports.

There’s a good chance the coronavirus will never go away. Even after a vaccine is discovered and deployed, the coronavirus will likely remain for decades to come, circulating among the world’s population. Experts call such diseases endemic — stubbornly resisting efforts to stamp them out. Think measles, HIV, chickenpox. It is a daunting proposition — a coronavirus-tinged world without a foreseeable end. But experts in epidemiology, disaster planning and vaccine development say embracing that reality is crucial to the next phase of America’s pandemic response. The long-term nature of covid-19, they say, should serve as a call to arms for

Yet since the start of the outbreak, the death toll has been concentrated in a just a few places – mostly large metropolitan areas, especially the New York City area.

The cumulative effects of the coronavirus may be more overwhelming than the other challenges New York City has had to face during the past two generations, including the aftermath of 9/ 11. It is likely that the pandemic will simply accelerate the trend in the sharp decline of its population and livelihoods. New York City was already losing population before the outbreak due to economic factors and quality of life issues. Around 40,000 residents left between 2017 and 2018 alone. The

As the “official” tally of COVID-19 deaths tops 100,000 in the U.S., we keep hearing how that number is likely a low-ball estimate. But there’s far more evidence that the death count has been knowingly exaggerated – possibly by a very wide margin. A recent Seattle Times article pretty much lays out the charade going on. The headline reads: “Washington state’s actual coronavirus death toll may be higher than current tallies, health officials say.” But the story itself leads one to the exact opposite conclusion. Well down in the article, the reporter reveals that: “The rapid onslaught of this coronavirus forced

Floyd died in custody Sunday night after getting stopped for forgery. Floyd was held down at his neck by an officer using his knee.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden confused D-Day and Pearl Harbor—as well as the date that Delaware declared its independence from neighboring Pennsylvania—at a Wednesday campaign event. "We declared our independence on December the 7th. It's not just D-Day," Biden said in an online townhall with Pennsylvania governor Tom Wolf, referring to Delaware's breakaway from Pennsylvania. While President Franklin D. Roosevelt did declare December 7 a day that "will live in infamy," the date marks the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. D-Day, the Allied invasion of Normandy, took place almost three years later, on June 6, 1944.
