Firing Berman is straight up obstruction of justice

Impeach his ass again. And let all those GOP senators stand up with Trump aka fucking crook again.

Susan Collins I am sure is really concerned.

Ivanka, Melania, Kimberly Guilfoyle, and Kayleigh Mcenany might have been exposed to C-19 and ...

... so they will all have to undergo quarantine until this coming Thursday. Why so
short you ask? The virus can only lives 3 days on plastic.

Daily coronavirus briefing: Fauci warns football 'may not happen' this fall


June 18, 10 p.m.
Fauci says football season will be nearly impossible this year -- "unless players are essentially in a bubble." As different sports begin to find ways to start their seasons, one sport might be sidelined this year. “Unless players are essentially in a bubble -- insulated from the community and they are tested nearly every day - it would be very hard to see how football is able to be played this fall,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, told CNN. “If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year,” Fauci said.

Arizona sheriff tests positive for coronavirus ahead of meeting with Trump

Source: The Hill

An Arizona sheriff who in May said that he wouldn't enforce a stay-at-home order imposed due to the coronavirus pandemic has tested positive for COVID-19.

Mark Lamb, the sheriff of Pinal County, Ariz., revealed in a statement shared on Facebook on Wednesday that he received a positive test result after getting an invitation to meet with President Trump at the White House. Lamb was one of several officials invited to attend a White House meeting on law enforcement and the signing of Trump's executive action on policing.

Lamb said that he received a mandatory screening from the White House and that the test came back positive.

White House spokesman Judd Deere told The Hill that Lamb never interacted with the president before testing positive and that he was immediately escorted off the complex after a second test confirmed he had contracted the virus.

Pinal County sheriff says he tested positive for COVID-19 before planned Trump meeting

Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb announced on Wednesday afternoon that he tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.

Lamb posted on the Pinal County Sheriff Office's Facebook page that he had been invited on Tuesday to join President Donald Trump at the White House and was tested before the meeting as part of the protocol.

"Unfortunately, as a law enforcement official and elected leader, we do not have the luxury of staying home," Lamb wrote. "This line of work is inherently dangerous, and that is a risk we take when we sign up for the job. Today, that risk is the COVID-19 virus."

Lamb said he believes he came into contact with an infected person during a campaign event he held on Saturday. Lamb didn't say if he wore a mask or practiced social distancing at the event.

Edit Yup! that is Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb. The one who pledged not to enforce the unconstitutional face
mask law in Arizona.

Daily Kos: Sen. Kennedy, stripping traitors' names off military bases unfairly picks on the South



Sen. Kennedy's objection to the amendment is simple. He believes renaming bases named after Confederate traitors is unfairly targeting the South, because that is the place most supportive of the practice. Why are you singling out our traitors, you bastards?

Says Kennedy: "I think history will show that in the 18th century, in the 19th century, and well into the 20th century, there were many non-Confederate generals, soldiers and others, in both the South and the North who practiced racial discrimination, anti-Semitism and misogyny. I don't think we ought to just pick on the South."

snip

Those are the people being honored, and in places very far away from the "South." And few to none of them are being honored for their sublime military leadership; the statues were erected, and the bases named, generations later in a deliberate Jim Crow-era push to glorify the "heritage" of continued violence and discrimination against Black Americans. The statues were not put in the public squares because suddenly it became urgent to honor largely forgotten top and mid-tier traitors who had disgracefully not gotten their due, but as public statements glorifying terrorism against Black Americans—lynchings, arsons, and other violence—by elevating, as heroes, those who made themselves infamous for pursuing the ultimate act of terrorism in service to institutional white supremacy.

There's not much subtlety to it, which is why dancing around it now requires Kennedy to grand jeté his way past the entire Civil War to suggest that the Confederate names are being singled out for their practices of "racial discrimination," rather than "widespread murder for the cause of owning people."

*******

There is no both sides on this issue. Owning slaves and fighting for the violent end to the United States was wrong.

Sinema says Gov. Ducey doesn't have the time or interest to speak to her about coronavirus pandemic

Sinema says Ducey doesn't have 'the time or interest' to speak to her about coronavirus pandemic

U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., said Tuesday she hasn't spoken with Gov. Doug Ducey about the state's deteriorating COVID-19 situation, saying he and his health director "may not have the time or interest" to discuss the rising hospitalizations with her.

"The director of the Department of Health Services and the governor have chosen to run a program that they feel is appropriate for Arizona, and have indicated they may not have the time or the interest to spend a lot of time with me on the phone," the Arizona Democrat said in an interview with "The Gaydos and Chad Show" on KTAR-FM (92.3 FM).

snip

Sinema's blunt assessment came on a day when the state once again set records for new cases and hospitalizations. She went on to rip Ducey's remarks last week that the state's hospitals had capacity for treating far more coronavirus cases.

"I don't think it makes sense to design your policy based on whether or not there are enough hospital beds for people to die in," she said. "I think we should be designing our policy about how do we reduce the spread, so fewer people are dying, fewer people are in the hospitals and fewer people are contracting the virus. That should be our focus. And we can do that while also safely reopening our businesses and our economy."

snip

"I want every Arizonan to be able to have the medical care and comfort and resources necessary, and today we are able to provide that," the Republican governor said in a defensive news conference on Thursday. Ducey pushed back against what he maintained was an incorrect national image of the state struggling to manage the virus.

BTW Senator Sinema is hotter than Mitch McConnell

Trump, "If we stop testing right now, we'd have very few cases, if any." 100% Gaslighting

And why is Trump working so hard to gas light America today? Because his "snake oil aka
HCQ was exposed as a fraud and a scam today by the FDA.
