Senator Rick Scott has tested positive for the coronavirus, his office announced Friday. The Florida Republican, who will turn 68 next month, came into contact with an unidentified individual on Friday of last week who later tested positive, Scott’s office said. Scott took several rapid tests that came back negative, but a more reliable nasal swab test came back positive Friday morning. “After several negative tests, I learned I was positive this morning,” Scott said in a statement. “I am feeling good and experiencing very mild symptoms. I will be working from home in Naples until it is safe for me to return to Washington, D.C.”

Seems like Republican leaders are being given the China virus. Now who would do that?

So I guess that means the Senate has a 75% infection rate?

Have there been any Dems that have gotten Covid? Or, did they previously receive a Chinese vaccine?

I guess we will be exposed to this slop everyday. Why don't they just take a day and say everybody tests positive to the virus, instead of dripping out one person at a time to torture us. I wonder why the obnoxious Democrats never get sick. All healthy as can be, having their dinners in the finest restaurants, not wearing masks, chatting with friends at the ball game, hugging Antifa.

Take another test. Those COVID readings are about as reliable as the voting machines.

Shutdown Blues 12 replies

Today the latest shutdown order by Governor Tim Walz took effect in Minnesota. COVID cases have been rising across the Upper Midwest, so our “emergency” continues. This time, the shutdown applies to restaurants, bars, gyms and youth sports. Of course, that COVID cases are rising is no mystery, even apart from the fact that vastly expanded testing naturally generates more cases. COVID is a seasonal flu bug. When it declined during the Summer in Northern states, it wasn’t because shutdowns and mask mandates were working. It was because the weather got hot. It was entirely predictable

Wearing a mask is important. For you and those around you. For elected officials? Not so much. Actually, all the COVID rules are for us, not them. COVID-19, and the accompanying lockdowns, have made it painfully clear: We plebes have to follow the rules; the elites do not. Start with California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who last week groveled for forgiveness after being caught attending a large birthday dinner at The French Laundry restaurant in Napa Valley. When pictures from the event surfaced, the hypocrisy was glaring: The governor was seen with his wife at a large table full of maskless lobbyists, all sitting in close proximity.

Donald Trump Jr., the president’s son, tested positive for coronavirus earlier this week, a spokesman confirmed on Friday evening. “Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result,” the spokesman told CNN. “He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following” quarantine guidelines. The diagnosis comes weeks after President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and the president’s son Barron all contracted the illness. The president was briefly hospitalized after his oxygen levels dropped, but returned to the White House to recover.

Noah Rothman’s excellent piece in Commentary, “The Dumbest of Coups,” deserves to be widely read. I’ve been writing about conspiracy theories for a while now — QAnon, the Flat-Earth gang, etc. — and one of the things you quickly learn about conspiracy theories is that every conspiracy theory is, in some part, every other conspiracy theory: They all overlap, in part or entirely. Donald Trump has always been a conspiracy kook — vaccines, 9/11, Obama’s birth certificate, etc. — and he came into the presidency retailing a conspiracy theory: Let’s not forget that he also claimed that the 2016 election was illegitimate

Pfizer has announced that it will file a request on Friday with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for emergency use authorization of its coronavirus vaccine. The request comes after a Phase 3 clinical study showed Pfizer’s vaccine to be 95 percent effective in preventing the disease associated with the coronavirus. “Our work to deliver a safe and effective vaccine has never been more urgent, as we continue to see an alarming rise in the number of cases of COVID-19 globally,” Pfizer CEO and chairman Dr. Albert Bourla said in a statement Friday. “Filing in the U.S. represents a critical milestone in our journey to deliver a COVID-19 vaccine to the world

Few reporters have gotten as tied into the White House as Axios’ Jonathan Swan in the Trump years. That might be coming in handier for Swan’s sources than for Swan himself in the meltdown over the election. They’re beginning to practice that well-trodden path of the protective leak, hoping to ironically stay afloat while Donald Trump’s ship sinks, especially after yesterday’s Rudy Giuliani-Sidney Powell presser. According to Swan’s sources, even his family wants to distance themselves from it: Most of President Trump’s closest advisers have completely distanced themselves from his legal effort and are avoiding his lawyers to avoid being swept into their courtroom dramas.

As Texas shattered a single-day record with 12,000 new coronavirus cases reported, Republican Governor Greg Abbott on Friday ruled out another lockdown and accused local leaders of not enforcing existing restrictions. His rejection of a lockdown comes as other governors across the US take aggressive new steps to curb record-shattering spikes in Covid-19 cases that are pushing hospitals to the limit. Texas is on the verge of surpassing 8000 hospitalised Covid-19 patients for the first time since a deadly summer outbreak, which back then Abbott met with orders that closed bars and limited restaurant occupancy.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Law enforcement agencies released statements Thursday in response to California's new COVID-19 public health orders and enforcement of the order. Officials made the announcements the same day California health officials ordered a "limited" curfew, which will be in place from Saturday to Dec. 21. The new stay-at-home order stops non-essential travel from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in counties in the purple COVID-19 tier. Here's what the different agencies said about enforcing the curfew: California Highway Patrol California Highway Patrol Commissioner Amanda Ray said in a statement the department's mission is unchanged. “CHP officers will continue to patrol throughout California and use their sound professional judgment

On Tuesday, we covered the news of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s edict stating that no more than ten people could gather in private residences for Thanksgiving and the response he received from numerous law enforcement agencies around the state. To put it kindly, none of the police departments or sheriffs were enthusiastic about taking on the job. To put it more bluntly, a lot of them flatly refused, pointing out the impossible scope of even attempting such a task. The Governor was asked about that response in a press conference yesterday and it’s obvious that his famously short temper had gotten the better of him again. (NY Post)

Biden and vice-president elect Kamala Harris spoke with members of the National Governors’ Association on Thursday, including Democrat Andrew Cuomo of New York and Republican Kay Ivey of Alabama. “We discussed the implementation of a national mask mandate,” Biden said. “Ten governors, Democrat and Republican, have imposed masking requirements and recognized the need for universal masking….It’s not a political statement. It’s a patriotic duty.”

When President Trump refused to concede the election to Joe Biden in the immediate aftermath of Nov. 3, we argued that he had the right to mount legal challenges if he believed there had been irregularities, mistakes, fraud, or all three. Democratic objections and outrage were as hypocritical as they were inevitable, coming as they did from a corps that refused to accept the 2016 election result not for days, weeks, or even months, but for four years. But although fair-minded people know there are legitimate procedures for litigation, and that these should be allowed to play out, there is also wisdom in the phrase, “put up or shut up.”

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo blasted county sheriffs who are refusing to barge into people’s homes to break up gatherings of more than 10 people, arguing that his executive order limiting the size of private gatherings is the equivalent of law. Cuomo said the sheriffs who have vowed to ignore the mandate he issued last week are “arrogant” and “frightening to democracy,” the Democrat & Chronicle reported. The governor claimed that his executive order is no different than a codified law, and that he issued it in order to force people to stop the “living room spread” of the novel coronavirus.

"This was very widespread, very deliberate, well-funded and everybody and their pet rock is trying to stop me from exposing it," the attorney said.

COVID-19 vaccines when ready should be available for those who want them. Yet it’s possible, nay probable, that the fabricated hysteria over COVID-19 virus will make – indeed already is making – people reject injections. Why? Because authorities have lost their trust regarding everything to do with the virus. If they can’t trust them over cases and deaths, why trust them over safety and efficacy of vaccines. Indeed, polls show a steady decline in those who said they would immediately receive a coronavirus vaccine, only 58% of Americans in the latest survey. There are actually several good reasons for trepidation, mind. Modern
