"Burr"isma...Burr's defense actually *indicts Trump.*


I took a close look at Richard Burr's "defense" in the insider-trading scandal.

His defense *indicts Trump.*

Burr cites a Trump/admin briefing supposedly showing officials warning the public. It actually shows them *downplaying* the threat!

Here's the key point.

This scandal goes far beyond just the stock sales.

It opens up a vast new line of inquiry:

What were lawmakers privately told by Trump officials about just how bad this was going to get?

And when were they told it?

NOW w/VIDEO ... Here is some detail behind the President's outburst that vague threads don't convey

NBC's Peter Alexander: "What do you say to Americans who are watching you right now who are scared?"

Trump: "I say you're a terrible reporter."


@PeterAlexander : Is it possible that your impulse to put a positive things on things might be giving Americans a false sense of hope?

TRUMP: No, I don't think so ... such a lovely question ... I feel good about it. Just a feeling. I'm a smart guy.

PETER ALEXANDER: What do you say to Americans watching right now who are scared?

TRUMP: I say that you are a terrible reporter. That is what I say. I think you had a nasty question.

The Hoarse Whisperer
Weíre going to call the insider trading scandal Burrisma, right?

9:32 AM - Mar 20, 2020

Tweet of the morning (well, last night but just saw it)

Iíve always wondered what it would be like to live through the Great Depression and the Spanish Flu at the same time. With Andrew Johnson as president.

Senate bill introduced for Coronavirus relief. Here are some early details

The bill includes cash payments of as much as $1,200 per person and $2,400 per married couple. Individuals with an adjusted gross income of less than $75,000, and $150,000 for joint filers, would receive the full payment. People earning over that amount would see their payments reduced by $5 for each $100 in income over that amount. The benefit completely phases out for individuals earning over $99,000 and married couples making more than $198,000.

What will history come to call this period? The Great Pause?

The whole world needed to pause two months ago

Itís been happening piecemeal which makes me leery for the future but itís starting in the US finally

NYC, Bay Area, LA, Pennsylvania

EDIT: All of CA ... BREAKING - Los Angeles closing non-essential retail businesses until April 19

ďSafer At HomeĒ


That makes the State of Pennsylvania, Bay Area, LA, NYC

Itís starting.

Here comes: The Great Pause
