Sen. Amy Klobuchar sent a letter Friday urging the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to plan for a possible outbreak of a rare, polio-like illness that mostly affects children. It's called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. Larey Swanson's son was diagnosed with AFM back in September of 2014 (snip) “Our family, along with several other families who have kids affected by AFM met with Klobuchar at Children's Hospital, and we emphasized for the need for mandatory reporting at the CDC. And at the time, she was very responsive,”


"And at the time, she was very responsive,” was she eating with a comb?

Klob isn't a medical expert. She isn't even a fake medical expert. She's a loudmouth knownothing Senator. Where does she get off telling the CDC what to do? Gotta keep the general public in a panic, right Klob? Just in time for the new school year too. Crackpot. Maybe she's on crack.

It would not surprise me, at this point, to find Democrat operatives releasing diseases into the general populace to create emergencies designed to align with their goals. They've been trying to stop education for weeks, now, but COVID doesn't affect children the way it does adults. Enter a contagious "children's disease".

Is this the same disease that entered the country several years ago? I think some experts said they could trace it back to Guatamala or Nicaragua and came in when Obozo opened the flood gates down south. It has been around for a while (5+ years or so) if it is the same disease. I remember it was said to have symptoms similar to polio. This is another reason why we need to stop illegal immigration.

The resolution calls for the county to advocate for policies that, "improves outcomes for Black, Indigenous and communities of color."

The administration of Gov. Tim Walz made a decision in May to spend up to $6.9 million to buy a building in St. Paul and convert it into a temporary morgue for a possible surge of COVID-19 victims. The decision was largely based on a COVID-19 model by the University of Minnesota and Minnesota Department of Health that projects the possibility of 16,000 to 44,000 deaths over the first year of the pandemic. (snip) Instead of deaths surging, they dropped from 696 in May to 402 in June for a total so far of 1,411 since March.

Seattle City Council Votes

Posted by Garnet 8/8/2020 9:43:35 AM Post Reply
The Seattle City Council voted unanimously on Wednesday in support of police budget proposals that would lay off 100 police officers, despite objections from the city's mayor and police chief. The city council began to reexamine the police department's budget earlier this summer in response to anti-police protests. Mayor Jenny Durkan (D.) and police chief Carmen Best criticized the most recent set of proposals, which would also end the removal of homeless people from the city's streets and cut salaries for police leadership. Durkan said the cuts would hit the "most diverse class" of officers the city has ever had, as police union rules mandate that layoffs are determined by seniority.
