Open Thread | The Virus Overtaking the World

I haven’t written about the COVID-19 virus because I have been watching what’s happening, and trying to understand the progress of this disease.


I also haven’t written because I was hoping that I could write something positive and reassuring..
But, I can’t.

In these times, it’s of the utmost importance who leads this government. Who leads this country. We have in charge an idiot. A man with absolutely no understanding of complex issues, leading a party that is against science. He cut all the programs from the Administration of 44 that would have been in place to lead the government’s response just because they were from 44.

Scumbag John Bolton cut the position at the NSC, who would have tackled the disease from a National Security perspective.

We don’t have a scientist heading the response. We have an incompetent Vice-President, who, while Governor, oversaw an explosion of HIV cases in rural Indiana. When you have religious fanatics, who don’t believe in science, in charge, it’s a recipe for disaster. We have one party whose mantra is anti-government. They live by ‘government can’t do anything good’ credo. These are the ones to lead the response?

We knew that our luck would run out with these people. That somehow, someway, their incompetence would hurt us. I am afraid that’s what is happening now.😒😢

    This has to one of the worst examples of trying hard to keep a straight face gaslighting – the bad soap opera edition..

  5. eliihass says:

    In addition to The Obamas as the “enemy/neoliberal criminal warmongers”, Fox “news” is now credible as far as Berners are concerned..

    This is coffee boy & felon, George Papadopoulos‘ ‘wife’..

    Wonder what they’re up to.. what scam are they looking to pull now..

    Has she been recalled from this ‘assignment’.. or is this some fresh stab at a new dash hustle..

      When even high school kids are more useful/proactive than the taxpayer-funded professional preeners running around like headless chickens, prioritizing ingratiating themselves to a treasonous buffoon, just to keep their power-gigs..

    Hopefully some of this wild crazy slightly tapers off with the end of mercury in retrograde..

    Paranoia and self-fulfilling ‘prophecies’…

    First, Ted Cruz, now Doug Collins to self-quarantine..

    There are no upsides to pandemics..

    But for what it’s worth, this coronavirus might just have offered a few..

    – Taught folks how to actually properly wash their hands..

    – Imperative of integrity & honor in leadership & how non-negotiable/prioritized they ought to be..

    – Ted, Doug & any number of repug gaslighters all forced to confront their callous, shameless complicity all by their lonesome..

    The man who is unprincipled in private life will never make a good public servant;
    Nor will one who is of no account at home prove a man of light and leading with the embassy in Macedonia;
    For he has only changed his abode, not his nature.

    There’s clearly a lucrative hustle market for nieces of deceased civil rights folks.. move over Alveda King, there’s a new niece in the hustle mix..

    Your ever so enabling, dollar-store media at work..

  13. eliihass says:

    Kim Jong-un (and book deal-‘patriot’ Bolton, too): I will not be ignored..

  14. eliihass says:

    We already had this conversation aeons ago, fam..

    For heaven’s sake, stop elevating these idiotic hustlers/paid pedestrian self-styled ‘influencers’ …stop letting them think they have any sway or that they can pick our nominee..

    Presidential candidates sucking up to/cozying up to ‘Charlemagne tha god’ this season, has to be one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever witnessed.. c-r-a-z-y..

    And in the end, he couldn’t even corral his very own slight, ‘niche’ audience behind the winner of his silly sham kiss up to me or else, preening contest … or any of his ‘candidates of choice’..

    Good for the former VP for not falling for this hustling con …knowing better and very importantly, understanding that the broader black demographic is so much more than, and certainly does not take their cues from a sadistic former basic sidekick to Wendy Williams..

    That even so-called black candidates fell for this farce and ended up giving this hustler of a fella any oxygen, is precisely why there are far too many wheeling and dealing, low-info, paid self-styled ‘influencers’ out there holding our democracy hostage for dollars and relevance, in their own way.. and worse, actively spreading disinformation to sate their little egos..

    Stephanie Ruhle – Wall Street gaslighter

    Already whitewashing & glossing over this shipwreck.. getting ahead the fallout by forcing a full-on gaslighting narrative that Americans aren’t going to blame the market downturn on the treasonous buffoon & her Wall Street pals..

    That Americans will understand because they’ll see this more as a ‘natural disaster’ that was beyond anyone’s control..

    Same Stephanie Ruhle who never stops pushing the gaslighting narrative that a treasonous buffoon is a ‘genius’.. an ‘amazing salesman’ as she keeps touting him..

    Even in the face of his brazen criminality, gaping ignorance, endless malfeasance..

    Just 3+ short years ago, the entire world still looked to us to lead the way.. but between Vlad, Murdoch, the alliance of white supremacists/sympathizers, their gaslighting, insecure, vacuous, foreign-asset/incurious/callous/con cohort of faux-‘strongmen’, stock market as economy, science as hoax, artifice as ‘competence’, it’s all quickly unraveled..

  17. eliihass says:

    When even Joe Walsh has some semblance of clarity..
