US will cross 100,000 daily Covid-19 infections "at some point" in next couple of weeks, former FDA head says

What you need to know

The Trumps don’t seem to understand that their supporters are dying from the coronavirus 

"Since June, states that voted for Trump have been the center of new cases, with about 7 in 10 new cases emerging there. But it was only more recently that red counties began seeing the majority of cases (a function of the red state cases until then being centered in blue counties). 

Since Sept. 5, most new cases in the nation have been in red counties. But it’s also the case that more deaths are occurring in places that voted for Trump. (In fact, the percentage of deaths occurring in red states has consistently been higher than the percentage of cases happening in those states.) 

Looking at the seven-day averages of new deaths — meaning the average daily number of deaths in each county over the prior week — red counties just passed blue counties as the main driver of new deaths."

Sicko Trump


Genius --- NOT!


So FAUX NOOZ joke and frozen food trust fund baby, Tucker Carlson, had the definitive, absolutely iron-clad proof of Hunter Biden's skulduggery, and then it disappeared!

Carlson said he had reams of proof that would sink Joe Biden's campaign and throw Hunter in jail.

And then it disappeared!

This proof, these documents were so crucial to proving the case against the Bidens, that Carlson's people UPSed them from Washington DC to Los Angeles WITHOUT MAKING COPIES OF THESE VERY IMPORTANT CRUCIAL DOCUMENTS THAT WOULD ONCE AND FOR ALL INDICT THE BIDENS AND PUT THEM IN THE HOOSEGOW FOREVER!!!!@!!

Ask yourself, what geniuses send precious documents ANYWHERE without making copies? 

Well the genius, Tucker Carlson, did.

Tucker Carlson Reports He Lost Only Copy of Documents That Nail Biden 

 The Trump campaign and its right-wing media messengers have devoted the final stretch of the election to insisting they had uncovered proof of deep corruption by the Biden family, along with demands that the mainstream media cover their allegations. (“Cover” means float insinuations of guilt, rather than nailing down the truth of the charges.) 

There have been several fishy aspects to the accusations, however. For one, incriminating information supposedly located on a Hunter Biden laptop left in a Delaware computer shop had in fact been circulating in Ukraine well before it was reportedly turned over to Rudy Giuliani’s lawyer. Over the weekend, Time reported that the Hunter Biden emails and photos were being shopped in Kiev last fall by somebody who “wanted to sell it to Republican allies of President Trump.” Several days later, Politico reported the “Hunter Biden laptop” material was being shopped around by a “Ukrainian oligarch looking for help with a potential legal jam” as early as spring of 2019.

If he doesn't kill his cultists with his unmasked Covid-19 rallies, he'll freeze them to death!


via DemocraticUnderground:

"President Donald Trump left several thousand of his supporters stranded at Eppley Airfield after his event in Omaha Tuesday night. 

 After the President boarded Air Force One and departed the state, many of the attendees, some of whom waited more than four hours to listen to him speak, stood in the freezing temperatures on a private road in the middle of the airport. 

 CNN’s Jeff Zeleny reported “thousands” of people were stuck in the cold more than an hour after Trump took off from the airport. According to a Twitter account named “Omaha Scanner,” police officers located two groups of elderly Trump supporters shortly after the event ended who were struggling in the cold. 

One group was reportedly frozen in the cold and unable to move. Another complaint included a call for a medic to assist a 68 year-old man who complained of hypothermia and possibly had an altered mental status. 

 The event itself seemed poorly planned from the beginning. 

 These people got to see first hand that he doesn't care if they freeze to death. Poorly planned event almost got people killed, they feel no responsibility for the safety and well being of people they brought out into the freezing cold."

With a week to go, this is Trump's strategy

 PLEASE GO TO Rational Nation USA and read his newest post!

"It Didn't Have To Be This Way Were It Not For trump!"

Trump has no plan, except this one:


Former U.S. attorneys — all Republicans — back Biden, saying Trump threatens ‘the rule of law’

Oct. 27, 2020 at 11:32 a.m. EDT 

"Twenty former U.S. attorneys — all of them Republicans — on Tuesday publicly called President Trump “a threat to the rule of law in our country,” and urged that he be replaced in November with his Democratic opponent, former vice president Joe Biden. 

 “The President has clearly conveyed that he expects his Justice Department appointees and prosecutors to serve his personal and political interests,” said the former prosecutors in an open letter. They accused Trump of taking “action against those who have stood up for the interests of justice.” 

 The letter, signed by prosecutors appointed by every GOP president from Eisenhower to Trump, is the latest instance of Republicans backing Biden. In August, dozens of GOP national security experts signed a full-page newspaper ad endorsing Biden over Trump."

The Last Debate of 2020

I don't know why they had another debate. 

It's not as if people are still undecided. 

Who would still be undecided anyway?

That would be like having to decide between wanting to eat a sh*t sandwich for another four years, 

Anyway, here's a cartoon that represents what last night's debate was like:

Bernie Sanders Owns the Trumper:

Trump is so dumb, he went after "socialized medicine" forgetting (or maybe he doesn't know this) that socialized medicine saved his worthless oversized posterior when he got the Covid! 

Trump's not very bright.


The part of last night's debate that morally separated the two men was when they spoke about the 500+ babies and children who were deliberately separated from their parents.

Biden was righteously angry and called it "criminal."

Trump answered with how clean their cages are.

Donald Trump's word is worthless. (SURPRISE!)  

I remember growing up and learning that the most important part of a person's character is keeping one's word once given.

"In posting the interview, Trump and the White House violated an agreement with CBS News that the White House was taping the interview “for archival purposes only,” said a network source with knowledge of the interview."

We know that Trump is a liar, a cheat, and a fraud, and is bothered not at all with breaking his word, his agreements, his promises.

What good is a man --  or anyone -- who chronically lies breaks his promises:  The wall is not being paid for by Mexico; there is no plan to replace Obamacare; the 15 Covid-19 cases did NOT go down to nothing and disappear; we don't have the best economy in the world, the best employment numbers, the best Covid-19 numbers.

Donald Trump is not a man of his word. Liars and Cheaters and Frauds never are.

Kick his large posterior out of the White House on November 3!

Here's the b.s. Giuliani and his enablers are trying to sell:




Level 1:
So today Trump called Tony Fauci a “disaster” and Joe Biden a “criminal” who “should be in jail.” I can’t think of a better description of Trump himself.

Hmmmm. Guess who that refers to? Go ahead. Guess.

 No. It's not Joe Biden, and it never will be.

When we read words like "stunningly reckless" only one prominent pol comes to mind:


And here's why:

"In the week since he restarted in-person campaigning, Mr. Trump has continued to prove he is his own biggest impediment by drawing more attention to himself each day than to Mr. Biden. 

 The president is blurting out snippets of his inner monologue by musing about how embarrassing it would be to lose to Mr. Biden — and how he’d never return to whatever state he happens to be in if its voters don’t help re-elect him. 

 He’s highlighting his difficulties with key constituencies, like women and older voters, by wondering out loud why they’ve forsaken him, rather than offering a message to bring more of them back into his camp. 

 And perhaps most damaging, to him and other Republicans on the ballot, he is further alienating these voters and others by continuing to minimize the pandemic and attacking women in positions of power. 

A new low point came on Saturday, when Mr. Trump held a rally in Muskegon, Mich., where he demanded that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer reopen the state and then said “lock them all up” after his supporters chanted “lock her up!” 

 It was a stunningly reckless comment from a president whose own F.B.I. this month arrested 14 men who it said had been plotting to kidnap Ms. Whitmer, a Democrat, and were captured on video with an array of weapons allegedly planning the crime. 

Mr. Trump has assailed Ms. Whitmer for months, disregarding her solid approval ratings with independent voters and women, two groups he is purportedly trying to court. "

 “She was literally just targeted,” Lee Chatfield, the speaker of the Michigan House and a leading state Republican, said of Ms. Whitmer. “Let’s debate differences. Let’s win elections. But not that.”

Conservative Rick Wilson on last night's two townhall appearances: Biden-Trump

 Busy weekend ahead for me.

 Here's Rick Wilson's take on Biden's and Trump's townhalls. And it's gloriously snarky and laser-sharp insightful. Couldn't agree more.


RICK WILSON: "Americans saw two men last night in the closing days of their respective pursuits of the highest office in the land, and their split-screen town halls clarified and catalyzed an understanding of this race in a way that their one debate so far did not.

It was one more sign of a Trump campaign in total collapse; broke, broken, and unmoored.
As Donald Trump was eviscerated by a smart and determined Savannah Guthrie, who put up with exactly zero bullsh*t from a subject who usually submerges interviewers under a tidal wave of bullshit, while Joe Biden connected with both his audience and interviewer George Stephanopoulos, it became clearer than ever that the choice is between the craziest possible uncle and a steady elder statesman, between a chaos president and a centrist Democrat.
Chicken Donald got what he asked for last night after ducking the presidential debate for what he’d expected to be the more amenable circumstance of a network town hall. And America saw him as he is, as Gurthrie opened up by pressing him on the key elements remaining in his base, white supremacists and QAnon maniacs, and Trump reeked of desperation not to further embarrass himself as he flailed to recapture his old media magic but instead dispelled once and for all the deeply-held belief that he cannot be bested by a reporter.
While Joe Biden looked and sounded compassionate, presidential and completely sane, Trump’s body language made it look like he was about to sprint off the set at any moment. He was wound like a spring. Biden looked ready for a cocktail, loose and happy.
It was one more example of why the Trump campaign’s nine-month effort to portray Joe Biden as senile, weak, and incapable of holding the presidency was such a stupid bet. The Biden on stage tonight was more presidential in 90 minutes than Donald Trump has been in four long years, let alone in his 60 minute flop-sweat bid at counter-programming.
Guthrie’s questions about QAnon clearly set Trump's tiny mental gears grinding. Trump knows his most fervent base voters now include an unhealthy leavening of conspiracy nutcases, and he was in on the scam until tonight. He knew he couldn't denounce them. He couldn't take the easy, sane path with an answer that might have had a chance of winning back a suburban voter or two who isn't Q-centric.
QAnon is an infection in the Republican body politics. The infection became a cancer and the cancer metastasized across the Republican Party.
Of course, Trump did manage to bridge to his favorite imaginary boogeyman;
Antifffffaaaaaa and the “radical left.” Antifa was a minor hit this summer during the post-George Floyd unrest, and exists primarily now as fodder for Trump Twitter and for people waiting for the caravans to announce new tour dates.
Perhaps no one was more deserving of feeling the chill wind of my Everything-Trump-Touches-Dies dictum tonight than Bill Barr. In recent days, Barr has fallen from presidential favor because the vaunted unmasking report long resident in the political spankbank of morons like Devin Nunes, Dan Bongino, and Mollie Hemingway of The Federalist turned out to be a complete bust.
Instead of discovering a vast conspiracy against Trump, the unmasking report ended with a super-sized nothingburger. Trump's allies screeched about it and now poor pitiful Donny is angry that his attorney general didn't make up some crimes for him to bitch about and that his FBI director, Chris Wray, won’t make up a story about widespread voting fraud to explain the historic thumping that’s coming in 18 days.
Trump also confessed to paying only $750 in federal income tax in 2017, and to owing mysterious foreign nationals $400 million. His blurted “It’s not Russher!” seemed a wee bit too defensive and eager.
In a moment of cultural dumbf**kery that says it all, Mercedes Schlapp, long-time Washington conservative doyenne and wife of lobbyist and Trump fave Matt Schlapp, decided the smart course in response to Donald’s dismal disaster was to attack “Mister Rodgers,” though she couldn’t spell his name right. Yes, that Mister Rogers.
The desperation rolled off Trump in fetid waves, reminding voters in this closing stretch that he cannot learn. He cannot change. He cannot take and execute on good advice anything that could potentially help his campaign and his political future. Tonight was another reminder that Donald Trump is always, and only, Donald Trump.

Where are all the Trumpers who were cheering on...


Trump and the DoJ over his nonsensical "OBAMAGATE!" which he tweeted about for weeks, promising arrests and the jailing of President Obama, Joe Biden, and Hillary for the "worst political scandal in the history of America!" 

Where are those people who were waiting for the report from the DoJ on the "unmasking" scandal that Trump promised?

I'd like to know where they are because I have news for them:

Washington Post: Trump-hyped investigation into Obama officials concludes without charges

"The Justice Department’s probe into whether officials in the Obama administration engaged in improper “unmasking” of members of the Trump administration came to a close recently, and federal prosecutors found that no substantive wrongdoing took place, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday. 

The revelation appears to be a clear setback for "President" Donald Trump and his Republican supporters in Congress, many of whom had echoed the president’s claims that unlawful “spying” on his campaign constituted “Obamagate”—the worst scandal in U.S. political history. 

Unmasking is an intelligence community term which refers to the common practice of revealing the identity of someone on a monitored communication, usually to provide intelligence officials with more context of the information.

"The US attorney tasked by Attorney General William Barr to review instances of "unmasking" -- the practice of releasing the names of American citizens who are caught up in National Security Agency foreign intelligence reports -- done around the 2016 election has completed the probe without bringing any charges, people familiar with the matter told The Washington Post. 

 While Republicans for months have hyped the Obama-era unmasking requests as an enormous scandal, John Bash found no evidence of substantive wrongdoing in his investigation, which has concluded without a public report, the Post said. Bash left his role with the Justice Department last week. 

The Justice Department declined to comment to CNN about the report. The quiet end to the probe caps a months-long effort that added the weight of a senior federal prosecutor behind an issue that President Donald Trump had seized on to underpin unfounded allegations about former President Barack Obama."

Trump's unceasing blubbering about "OBAMAGATE!" has come to nothing. No charges, no arrests. Nothing.

Trump made a lot of noise, demanded the Justice Department investigate it, then tweeted week after week about the his fantasy of throwing the previous president and his secretary of state in jail. Outrageous!

This was all about appeasing the wannabe dictator and his cultists, and it came to NOTHING! Just like BENGHAZI! A waste of time and money to appease the paranoid Covid Super Spreader in the Oval Office.


Conservative think tank says Biden's proposals will cut taxes for most in 2021


Our frequent conservative visitor, skudrunner, complains everytime he visits this blog that Joe Biden will raise your taxes if you're middle class.

Not true. And even a Conservative think tank disputes skudrunner's talking points.

Skud apparently got his information from a right wing blog or FAUX NOOZ or some far right outlet that doesn't deal in facts or truth.

It's sad, really, that so many Trump supporters deliberately stay ignorant of the facts.

From The Hill:

Conservative think tank: Biden proposals would cut taxes for most in 2021 

The tax proposals of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden would raise $2.8 trillion over 10 years and reduce taxes for most households in the near-term, according to an analysis released Tuesday by the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute (AEI). 

 "Overall, Biden’s tax proposals would make the US tax code more progressive," AEI researchers said in their paper. Biden has offered a number of tax proposals aimed at raising taxes on wealthy individuals and corporations. These include undoing portions of President Trump's 2017 tax-cut law that cut taxes for people making over $400,000, subjecting earnings over $400,000 to Social Security taxes, raising the corporate tax rate from 21 percent to 28 percent and changing how U.S. companies' foreign profits are taxed.

California Republican Party Admits It Placed Misleading Ballot Boxes Around State 

Oct. 12, 2020 The California Republican Party has admitted responsibility for placing more than 50 deceptively labeled “official” drop boxes for mail-in ballots in Los Angeles, Fresno and Orange Counties — an action that state officials said was illegal and could lead to voter fraud. 

 The dark gray metal boxes have been popping up over the past two weeks near churches, gun shops and Republican Party offices, mostly in conservative areas of a deep-blue state, affixed with a white paper label identifying them as either an “Official Ballot Drop off Box” or a “Ballot Drop Box.” 

 To the average voter, they are virtually indistinguishable from drop-off sites sanctioned by the state, which are governed by strict regulations intended to prevent the partisan manipulation of ballots.

When the leader of the present GOP, Donald J. Trump, is a liar, cheat, and fraud, what can we expect but lying, cheating, and fraud in this election from the party that he leads. 

What we didn't expect is how blatant it would be and how dedicated to fraud the present GOP is.

Vote the scoundrels OUT!

Take heart, friends, but never be complacent...


maybe we can do this and rid ourselves of the worst president and administration in modern American history.

Maybe the cultists who still support this dictator wannabe, super-spreader of Covid-19, and anti-American, corrupt businessman will come to their senses, but that is doubtful.

But we can take heart in this:

Joe Biden's polling better than any challenger since 1936

(CNN)Former Vice President Joe Biden is dominating President Donald Trump in the latest polls. No, the election is not over yet, and Trump still has a non-negligible chance of winning. But a look through history reveals that Biden is in a better position at this point than any challenger since 1936, when the first scientific polls were taken in a presidential race. 

The ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Sunday was the latest poll to indicate Biden's strength. Biden led Trump by a 55% to 43% margin among likely voters. The poll was the third high quality national poll published this week that had Biden up by at least 10 points and above 50%. 

The other two being from CNN/SSRS and Fox News. Indeed, the average of polls has Biden at around 52% or 53% and up by somewhere between 10 and 11 points. 

This is an unprecedented position for a challenger with a mere 23 days to go until Election Day.


John Heilemann on Arizona 

 "I have never been in Arizona when there has been consensus across the spectrum, Republican and Democratic sources, that this is the year Arizona is going blue, at the Senate level and the Presidential level."

"I couldn't find anybody in Arizona who does not at this point think that Joe Biden is going to win the State and Martha McSally is gonna get creamed in the Senate race." 

Vote! No matter how good these reports are. 

VOTE! We need to crush Trump and the current Republican Party so that there's no question about America rejecting them.

White Supremacist Terrorists Plotted to Overthrow Michigan's Government...


by kidnapping and possibly killing Governor Gretchen Whitmer.

As of now, I've yet to hear or see anything from Trump or his A.G. on this outrageous attack on American democracy. Instead Trump was rage-tweeting about injuries to his delicate psyche and acting like a maniac.

I've heard nothing from his lap dog Attorney General Barr.

From the NYTimes:

"In the swirls of disinformation that now pollute our political discourse, one is particularly dangerous: that private militias are constitutionally protected. Although these vigilante groups often cite the Second Amendment’s “well regulated militia” for their authority, history and Supreme Court precedent make clear that the phrase was not intended to — and does not — authorize private militias outside of government control. Indeed, these armed groups have no authority to call themselves forth into militia service; the Second Amendment does not protect such activity; and all 50 states prohibit it. 

The danger of these groups was brought home on Thursday with the announcement that the F.B.I. had thwarted a plot by people associated with an extremist group in Michigan to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and overthrow the government."

Our classy Governor:

Gretchen Whitmer says Charlie Baker called her after news of alleged kidnapping plot to ‘check in on’ her

"After news broke that a group had allegedly hatched a plot to kidnap her, Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan said she received well wishes from prominent officials, among them Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. 

Also on the Michigan Democrat’s call log: Governor Charlie Baker. Whitmer, speaking in a CNN appearance Thursday night, specifically said Baker was among those who reached out to her, holding the Republican governor up as a contrast to President Trump, with whom she has feuded, including after Thursday’s news of the criminal charges surfaced. 

 “I’d like to acknowledge Charlie Baker, the governor of Massachusetts, who called to check in on me,” Whitmer told host Erin Burnett. “That’s what decent people do. That’s what good American leaders do.”

When I addressed the people of Michigan on Thursday to comment on the unprecedented terrorism, conspiracy and weapons charges against 13 men, some of whom were preparing to kidnap and possibly kill me, I said, “Hatred, bigotry and violence have no place in the great state of Michigan.” I meant it. But just moments later, President Trump’s campaign adviser, Jason Miller, appeared on national television accusing me of fostering hatred.

I’m not going to waste my time arguing with the president. But I will always hold him accountable. Because when our leaders speak, their words carry weight.

When our leaders encourage domestic terrorists, they legitimize their actions. When they stoke and contribute to hate speech, they are complicit. And when a sitting president stands on a national stage refusing to condemn white supremacists and hate groups, as President Trump did when he told the Proud Boys to “stand back and stand by” during the first presidential debate, he is complicit. Hate groups heard the president’s words not as a rebuke, but as a rallying cry. As a call to action.


Trump is a failed human being and a failed American president, and he does not deserve re-election. Every day proves that. He is incapable of showing any human decency. This is just another example of his dreadful inability to lead. 

The worst example is the 210,000 dead Americans on his watch from his incompetent handling of Covid-19 pandemic, of which he himself is infected.
