4/27 Trump, "There has been so much unnecessary death in this country. It could have been stopped."

Attorney General William Barr tells prosecutors to be on watch for 'overbearing' coronavirus measure

Do Trump and Barr want to kill us? The only thing we have now is shutdowns, social distancing, and testing/tracing
in fighting "the beast" and yet Trump/Barr/Fox News are working to block theses actions or to shut them down.


Attorney General William Barr told federal prosecutors across the country to be on guard for overbearing state and local coronavirus measures.

In a memo Monday, Barr called stay-at-home orders "necessary" but "tremendous burdens," and warned that the Justice Department could step in to fight policies that go too far.

"If a state or local ordinance crosses the line from an appropriate exercise of authority to stop the spread of COVID19 into an overbearing infringement of constitutional and statutory protections, the Department of Justice may have an obligation to address that overreach in federal court," Barr wrote in the memo the department shared with CNN.

The directive comes as social distancing policies have begun to splinter across the country, with a number of states rolling back strict guidelines while others remain under near-lockdown.

Throughout the pandemic, Barr has expressed unease with stay-at-home orders, lamenting them in interviews as "draconian" and "onerous" and signaling that the Justice Department was willing to fight governors whose policies were seen as discriminatory or impairing interstate commerce.

Trump has gotta go now. Update.

America is closing in on 60,000 dead … a # which Trump said we would not hit until August 2020 …. and 1,000,000 reported cases, God only knows how many unreported cases of C-19, Trump has now blocked the U.S. from working with an international consortium on finding a vaccine, he is in a fight with the W.H.O. in order to hide his mistakes, and he is straight up bat shit crazy.

We are going to need adults to keep the lights on, the natural gas in the pipelines, the water flowing,
the trash picked up, the food supply lines open, the post office open, and to treat/solve this deadly disease.
Trump is just not up to those challenges. And world wide the #s of dead and or sick will be staggering. A University
of Minnesota Epidemiologist, Dr Osterholm* is on record as saying as much as 60% of the world’s population will get the disease over the next 2 years.

Trump knew about C-19 in November of 2019 and what did he and Kush-Turd do? They looked @ ways
on how to make money off "the Beast.”

England got rid of Chamberlain and replaced him with Churchill during their darkest hour and this is a pretty dark hour
for America and the world. Trump has to gotta go now.

* "This is going to get worse. This is going to get much, much worse. I think most people don't understand that," Osterholm said. "As such, what we're doing now is just the beginning of what will likely be a 16- to maybe 20-month period of time when we're all going to be dealing with this issue. It will be a real challenge.”

Could their be a link between Trump/Kushner shipping 18 tons of PPE in Feb. of 20202 that was ...

... badly needed here to China and the large note that is coming due to Donald from China?

Donald Trump’s Debt to China A 211 million dollar note is coming due in 2022.

In 2012, the Bank of China, a commercial bank owned by the Chinese state, provided more than two hundred million dollars in loans to a New York office building that Trump co-owns, Politico reported on Friday. The loans will come due in 2022, “in the middle of what could be Trump’s second term,” the timely article noted.

The building in question is 1290 Avenue of the Americas, which is located between West Fifty-first and West Fifty-second Streets. The majority owner of the building is Vornado Realty Trust, a big real-estate company that is run by the veteran developer Steven Roth. In 2007, the Trump Organization acquired a thirty-per-cent stake in the Sixth Avenue building and also in separate Vornado development, in San Francisco. By all appearances, the Vornado stake has been one of Trump’s most successful investments, and the Bank of China played a significant role in its success. “The debt stems from a $950 million refinancing deal in 2012, to which the Bank of China chipped in $211 million,” the Politico article said. “Vornado’s federal financial disclosures show it and the other owner of 1290 Avenue of the Americas—Trump—are still indebted from the 2012 deal.”

Whether Trump’s businesses received more loans from state-owned Chinese banks—or other investors with ties to foreign governments—is unknown because Trump refuses to release his complete tax returns and other financial records. The “financial disclosure law did not require him to disclose any business loans he had not personally guaranteed,” Walter Shaub, a former head of the Office of Government Ethics, which establishes standards for the executive branch, wrote on Twitter on Friday. “So, who knows who else he owes money? I’ll tell you who: The lenders who have him in their grip.”

We do know that Trump-family companies have done business with Chinese entities on other occasions, too. In 2017, a Trump-branded golf resort in Dubai hired two Chinese firms to do construction, McClatchy reported. And, since Trump has been in the White House, the Chinese government has issued numerous trademarks to Ivanka Trump’s businesses.

BTW This is one more thing that corroborates the Steele (pee pee tapes) Dossier which said that
although Trump has been getting money from Russia he is in debt just as deep with China.

Pence to Rush Limbaugh: Coronavirus outbreak may be 'behind us' by June

Pence to Rush Limbaugh: Coronavirus outbreak may be ‘behind us’ by June

Vice President Mike Pence, the head of the government’s coronavirus task force, believes the US coronavirus pandemic may be largely “behind us” by early June if cases continue falling.

In an interview with conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Thursday, Pence was optimistic that a large number of Americans may have been exposed to COVID-19, leading to a “degree of immunity.”

“I truly do believe if current trend lines hold, that by early June, we could largely have this coronavirus epidemic behind us, and begin to see our nation open back up and go back to work,” Pence said.

“There is a high likelihood that if you’ve had this coronavirus in the past, that you will enjoy some immunity from it in the future,” the veep added.

Good God in Butter! When does this nightmare stop? We are at just about 1,000,000 cases of C-19,
> 50,000 deaths*, the economy is in a free fall to a recession/depression, the #s of deaths world wide
might very well be in the 10s of millions, food supplies will be disrupted, and we have no treatment
and or vaccine to treat "the beast" And Mike Pence along with Fox News are trying to tell us that "it"
will soon be behind us.

* Trump/Pence just said 2 weeks ago that the death total will top out @ 60,000 in August.


I need to go outside and see some wildflowers.




Warren said "I will miss my brother" No family to hold his hand or to say "I love you" one more time

Donald Reed Herring, the oldest brother of Senator Elizabeth Warren, died on Tuesday night in Norman, Okla., about three weeks after testing positive for coronavirus.

Herring, a 20-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, was 86.

Warren, who has been a vocal critic of the Trump administration’s halting response to the pandemic for months, has not previously revealed that her family was waging its own personal battle against the virus. She confirmed his death in a statement provided to the Globe and said the cause was coronavirus.

“I’m grateful to the nurses and other front-line staff who took care of my brother, but it is hard to know that there was no family to hold his hand or to say “I love you” one more time. And now there’s no funeral for those of us who loved him to hold each other close,” Warren said. “I will miss my brother.”

Daughter, 5, of Detroit first responders dies after coronavirus diagnosis

DETROIT — The 5-year-old daughter of two Detroit first responders has died of complications from coronavirus.

Skylar Herbert died Sunday at Beaumont Royal Oak Hospital after being on a ventilator for two weeks, CNN affiliate WXYZ reported. She tested positive for coronavirus last month and developed a rare form of meningitis and swelling on the brain, according to WXYZ.

"The loss of a child, at any time, under any circumstances, is a tragedy," Beaumont Hospital said in a statement obtained by WXYZ. "We are heartbroken that COVID-19 has taken the life of a child. We extend our deepest sympathy to Skylar's family and all others who have lost a loved one to this virus."

Skylar's mother has been a Detroit Police officer for 25 years, and her father has worked as a firefighter with the Detroit Fire Department for 18 years, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said during a Monday news conference.

Now I know Trump would screw things up badly but I had no idea on just how bad it would be. We
are looking @ global recession/depression, food shortages/famine, and 10s of millions sick and or dead
from a virus that should have been caught and stopped in China if Trump hadn't fired the people whose
job it was to do just that. Trump should lose every state by double digits this fall. He is the biggest fuck
up of all time.
