The axis of ego is probably on the phone with each other talking about how tanking the WHO and

ignoring COVID-19 for as long as they did (do) are going to cull the herd and reduce the human footprint, earning themselves the Nobel Peace Prize for improving the environment.

It is becoming clearer why Susan Rice is such a target on the right. She can refute 'Obamagate'

like nobody else as she was in the Obama White House and has a laser like memory for details.


Susan Rice responds to 'dishonest accusations' after email about Obama meeting on Flynn declassified

"SNIP......

WASHINGTON – Allies of President Donald Trump are seizing upon newly declassified portions of an email written by former national security adviser Susan Rice as evidence that an investigation into her incoming successor, Michael Flynn, was politically motivated, while Rice says the same email proves the previous administration's concerns were legitimate. 

Rice sent herself an email on the day of Trump's inauguration that recounts a Jan. 5, 2017, Oval Office meeting she attended along with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. She described the meeting as a "follow-on conversation" after a briefing by intelligence community leaders on Russian interference in the 2016 election.  

"President Obama began the conversation by stressing his continued commitment to ensuring that every aspect of this issue is handled by the Intelligence and law enforcement communities 'by the book,'" Rice wrote. "The President stressed that he is not asking about, intimating or instructing anything from a law enforcement perspective. He reiterated that our law enforcement team needs to proceed as it normally would by the book." 

Rice said Obama wanted to be sure there was no reason they couldn't "share any information fully as it related to Russia" with the new administration.

White House economic adviser Peter Navarro claimed on Meet the Press that lockdowns to curb the spread of the coronavirus will “indirectly” kill more people than the virus itself.

And who is responsible for building businesspeople into cult members who get all their self worth from their increased productivity and bonuses than being a good person or a truly religious one (real walk the walk christianity for example) or truly interconnected with their communities through paying good taxes that go to good schools or sharing in a great universal healthcare system with the whole country or mentoring youth, or being part of a country that has lead and still leads the world in every crisis, etc? Or all of the above or a mixture thereof? Cause businesspeople is who Trump cares about. Who is responsible of making all the people really so brittle? The poor are financially vulnerable, the republican rich are morally poor and community poor. So disconnected? The GOP. But the GOP business cult need an intervention if only to be shown a better way and a way out: when you pull up the ladder behind you you have nowhere to go, but to jump, in a business crisis.

Then again in Britain they are worried about suicides of front line workers due to COVID-19. So we can up the numbers of deaths in the case business opens too soon and COVID - 19 numbers go way back up and traumatize healthcare workers into ptsd.

If only there had been proper bending of the curve in february and early march. Many deaths could have been avoided due to economic loss of workers and business owners and COVID - 19.

Well Kayleigh MacEnany is quoting MSM sources from her binder when she gives

press conferences. So i guess the Trump WH likes the main stream media. Cause they seem to want the press gallery to believe. Someone should ask her about that.

Kayleigh McEnany has a new press tactics in WH Press Conferences 1) really important

question thanks for asking that 2) quote some MSM source (not fox) on something 3) read it from a binder 4) that blames or then can be blamed on Obama

If they can vote by mail. Trust me, the GOP has already run the numbers

on whether or not they can suppress the waking senior vote for Biden by not allowing voting by mail.

The private health care companies are probably worried medicare

for all might get some life after americans realize how vulnerable the current employer based system makes them. That would explain the popularity of the ACA now. Didn't Barr warn Trump not to fight the ACA right now? But Trump wants to get rid of it because it was Obama's. Maybe the GOP gave Trump some bull**** reason why the ACA has to be undone when they fully had no intension of replacing it and now their hands are tied they can't give Trump the truth at this late time. But undoing the ACA, when 70% of americans want public health care, is risky. Especially if they fully intended not to replace it with anything.

They are going after Obama with a new conspiracy theory to get at a strength of Biden's. The

China one does not work. Calling Biden doddering does not work coming from Trump.so now this. I'd love to have Obama in the spotlight as a foil to Trump: the Obama Administration had principals and honesty and leadership, plus Obama's people were qualified. They cared about helping people not in the 1% too. Trump and his team just surf one conspiracy narrative after another hoping to hang ten.

Maybe the' Trump is killing people with his false narratives on the coronavirus

while those in the WH test every person every day there ' thing is waking people up. Why drown it out when Trump is drowning in crap of his own making? Who knows. The announcement may have been specifically made by Barr to create a partsan scandal that would take over the news. People are just more interested in their lives and the lives of those they love than in a reality tv president breaking authoritarian.

And now they will be the only task force. This reminds me of Katrina responce and how the Bush WH said people were going to be held responsible for staying in NOLA and thought the country would be with them in blaming the victims. It was long term GOP policy to make americans more cold hearted. Then when Americans blew up with anger when so many poor NOLA residents were suffering, Bush WH blamed young adults manning the phones at the WH. So it really wasn't them . But they lost that one.

Here they go again with trying to teach cold heartedness (well the sick should have worked harder and had better insurance or eaten better food or had the money to be able to skip the long term care nursing home). But it will be China's fault when the numbers of dead blast through the roof. And Kushner will play dumb on his task force. Like Betsy Devos does all the time. Like Bush did. That is why the Birx-Fauci task for is gone: they won't play dumb.
