Battered by Trump, the CDC's director
faces pressure to speak out

Original Article

Washington–Pressure is mounting on the leaders of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—from inside and outside the agency—to speak publicly against the White House’s manhandling of CDC research and public health decisions, with career scientists so demoralized they are talking of quitting if President Donald Trump wins re-election. The situation came to a boiling point last week when William Foege, a giant in public health who led the CDC under Democratic and Republican presidents, called for its current director, Dr. Robert Redfield, to “stand up to a bully”—he meant Trump—even at the risk of being fired. “Silence becomes complicity,”

The CDC has credibility? Fire them all.

CDC quietly updated covid numbers .. Only 6 percent are dying from covid alone .. >> anyone who is pushing for more unconstitutional lock-downs and other abuses on our personal constitutional rights is either evil or terribly misinformed… Toss the mask and get back to living free..

BIL has COPD. Went into the hospital on Wednesday. Was told he has the Wuhan flu. He is home today. He was given the same meds PRESIDENT Trump was given while in Walter Reed Hosp. I would think that the CDC would be on top of this medication. Ramping up production (in the USA) and getting it out to hospitals. These scientists at the CDC should all quit. We could get real drs and scientists working there. Might save a few lives!

Has anyone at the CDC or NIH read the two scientific papers authored by the top researcher at the Hong Kong WHO monitoring laboratory, Dr. Li-Meng Yan? She has compiled genomic sequence data on the SARS-COV-2 virus that indicates it did not evolve in nature. It further shows that PLA scientists fabricated data that has been published to the international GenBank database to cover their tracks and confuse the scientific community. Rather than worrying about their political butts maybe they could have some of our own virus experts corroborate her findings and determine if we have actually been attacked by a bioweapon from the CCP. That seems like a slightly more important priority than who gets to keep their cushy job after the election.

The way that CDC handled the reporting of cases, each person involved, starting with the Director should be fired. CDC is a political hack organization. My understanding the Director of CDC can't even get the guidance correct about the virus. He is no better than the quack Fauci.

The fact that they put out worthless test kits early on proves that they are incompetent at a level that should get their budget cut by 80% at least. CDC is unnecessary, especially when they prove that their 'emergency response capability' is of zero value.

#16 As I understand it, Regeneron it is still getting approved. Trump and Christy got it because they have connections. My mom is early in the illness and not terribly sick yet. HCQ is very helpful for her situation. But the CDC is pushing doctors to tell patients it is dangerous and refuse to give it.

#20, no matter how sick she is or isn't, she should be pushing every button she has to get the Regeneron, even though it is not fully approved. The monoclonal antibodies just shut down the virus, deactivating it's capability to enter human cells and reproduce. HCQ suppresses the body's inappropriate response to the virus, helpful, but the immune system still has to work hard and long to kill off the virus. Regeneron is a huge 'jump start'. I am certain that if I wind up with this stuff, I will be doing whatever it takes to get the monoclonal antibodies for me, or for any of my loved ones. IMO, it will be the game changer.

The CDC has been battering our country for close to nine months. Latest casualty I've noticed is a little music school on main street that was there for at least ten years.No idea how many teachers there were, but they had banners on front windows that listed about six or more instruments they taught. Empty. For rent. Thank you CDC and company. Lived through the Hong Kong flu. No shutdowns. One hundred thousand died, and that was probably a true count and did not include car accidents, cancer and heart attacks.

The unlicensed security guard accused of fatally shooting a Navy veteran at a Denver “Patriot Rally” railed against President Trump and shared left-wing political content on social media. Matthew Dolloff‘s ex-girlfriend, told the Daily Mail, she dated Dolloff from 2010 to 2013, and during that time period, the former couple were both heavily involved in Occupy Denver—the local branch of Occupy Wall Street.

While answering a question about how she would rule in potential Supreme Court cases involving LGBTQ+ people's rights during her confirmation hearing Tuesday, Judge Amy Coney Barrett used the term "sexual preference"—a term classified as "offensive" by GLAAD. Barrett used the term while denouncing discrimination against gay and lesbian people. "Senator, I have no agenda, and I do want to be clear: I have never discriminated on the basis of sexual preference and would not ever discriminate on the basis of sexual preference," Barrett said. "Like racism, I think discrimination is abhorrent." Later in the day, Senator Mazie Hirono followed up

In a tweet shared by Mr. Trump, NBC News’ Marianna Sotomayor reported that dozens of the president’s supporters were loudly chanting a mix of “four more years,” “Trump” and “USA” throughout the event, and that they grew “louder anytime Joe Biden mentioned the president.” Ms. Sotomayor’s tweet included a video that showed the protesters shouting and waving Trump flags just off to the side of where Mr. Biden was speaking to a drive-in rally

Disgraced Democratic Congresswoman Katie Hill has quietly settled her divorce from husband Kenny Heslep after blaming him for exposing a ‘throuple’ sexual relationship they were having with a young female campaign staffer, DailyMail.com can reveal. Hill, 33, resigned from Congress last year after the publication of shocking nude photos of the politician cavorting with junior staffer Morgan Desjardins, who was 22 at the time, and an ethics probe was launched into her alleged affair with another aide. The freshman Democrat from California immediately accused her 'abusive' husband Heslep, 36, of trying to humiliate her and leaking the snaps to ruin her political career.

The viewership numbers for the sixth and final game of the NBA Finals are in, and they are atrocious. Game 6 drew, at its peak, 6.028 million viewers. To put that in perspective, Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals, which included a team from Canada and did not include LeBron James, drew 18.34 million viewers.

New York—Americans who own stocks are pulling further away from those who don’t, as Wall Street roars back to record heights while much of the economy struggles. And Black households are much more likely to be in that not-as-fortunate group that isn’t in the stock market. Only 33.5% of Black households owned stocks in 2019, according to data released recently by the Federal Reserve.(Snip) Many reasons are behind the split. Experts say chief among them is a longstanding preference by many Black investors for safer places to put their money—the legacy, some say, of decades of discrimination and fear.

WASHINGTON —  A group of prominent Christians from both sides of the aisle, including a past faith advisor to President Obama, is forming a political action committee designed to chip away at Christian support for President Trump in the final weeks of the 2020 campaign. The new super PAC, dubbed Not Our Faith, plans to roll out TV and digital ads focused on Christian voters — particularly the evangelical and Roman Catholic voters who helped Trump secure victory in 2016. Its first digital ad, set to run in the battleground states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, takes sharp aim at Trump’s claim to a foothold with Christians. Correction*
