BBC: Top Republican Mitch McConnell avoids White House over Covid-19


Republican leader Mitch McConnell, 78, on Thursday revealed he had not been to the White House since August because of the way it has handled Covid-19.

The Kentucky senator said he spoke to the president frequently over the phone but had not visited since 6 August.

Mr McConnell, a polio survivor, contrasted the White House with the Senate, where lawmakers are urged to wear masks and social distance.

His comments come as the White House deals with a Covid-19 outbreak.

Former FBI Director Andrew McCabe pointed the finger at President Donald Trump on Thursday for fostering a cultural climate which triggered six men to allegedly plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D).

During a press conference on Thursday, federal prosecutors revealed that the militia members plotted against Whitmer because of the coronavirus-related restrictions she put on the state.

Following the press conference, CNN’s Brianna Keilar noted that Trump had attacked Whitmer over her handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

In one tweet Trump wrote, “Liberate Michigan!”

Did a little Full Moon ritual yesterday, Oct. 1

I lit a white candle and meditated on moon even though it was behind clouds.

Then said some words of power for the safety of Joe and Jill Biden, for unity, for peace, for a good conclusion to the election, for the good of all -- meaning all of us in this nation, even D.T.

It's specifically against my wiccan training to wish harm on anyone, ever. Also it's very bad karma. The most I could ever do would be a spell binding someone to prevent them from causing harm, but that's a dark moon action anyway, and I've very seldom done it.

Then today I woke up to the news of the pResident's illness.

I'm very glad I didn't ill-wish him, or I'd be feeling awful. And VERY glad indeed that I asked for the Bidens' safety, and the safety of us all.

What if Mike Pence gets infected? White House COVID-19 outbreak could set off constitutional chaos

NBC News reporter Ken Dilanian laid out the possible chain of events if Vice President Mike Pence also tests positive for the coronavirus.

President Donald Trump announced that he and first lady Melania Trump had been infected, along with senior adviser Hope Hicks, and Dilanian explained to MSNBC’s

“There’s a sense this is a dire national security situation, perhaps even a crisis, at the same time,” Dilanian said. “Unlike Boris Johnson, the president of the United States is the commander in chief of the world’s most powerful military with the awesome nuclear force and he has a nuclear football at his disposal at all times, and he needs to be mentally and cognitively in full capacity to be able to make split decisions about national security threats to the United States.”

“So we’ll hear a lot, I think, in the coming days about this term continuity of government,” he continued. “That is a term that notes a lot of different procedures and operations behind the scenes. It got a lot of attention after 9/11. It’s war-gamed and there are exercises every year where the government games out how it’s going to maintain operations in the event of a crisis. Most of the planning has to do with catastrophic attacks, terrorist attacks, and a lot of it involves whisking decision-makers away to bunkers. There are places they would take the president in the event of a crisis, but when you have the president infected with COVID that’s a problem. You wouldn’t want an infected person with key decision makers.”


Here's a thought: quarantining the entire Republican Party

until they recover.

Don't forget that COVID-19 can have serious long-lasting aftereffects

such as cognitive decline, lung and heart damage, and much more.

Even if he has a mild case and recovers, he could end up with cognitive issues on top of pre-existing cognitive issues.

How much money has the Trump pResidency cost America?

This thought has been troubling me for some time.

Ever since I read that his protective Secret Service agents are required to stay in expensive Trump-owned facilities and rent pricey golf carts at taxpayer expense, I have wondered how much of our money he is blowing through. Particularly when it profits one of his properties and lines his own pockets.

Use of Air Force One and the White House for campaign purposes and for personal use. Huge tax giveaways to the rich and the corporations, some presumably with financial ties to himself and his family. The looting of protective gear including masks, leaving to shortages for medical workers on the front lines of the pandemic. Selling federal land to private interests. And how much did his gold toilet cost us?

His golf trips. His weekly trips to Mar-a-Lago. Making Secret Service agents stay at a Trump-owned property in Scotland at taxpayer expense an hour from where Trump was staying. These are likely just the tip of an iceberg of squandering public money.

I'm just citing these few examples off the top of my head. Surely skilled researchers can put together some realistic numbers. Maybe it's been done already.

The Biden-Harris campaign might want to put together some estimates, if there is enough time.

My fear is that after he is kicked or dragged out of the White House in January, and the amount of money he has cost us is finally added up and made public, we will discover that he has bankrupted our nation, landing us in debt for many years to come.
