Shelving CDC Guidelines, Economy Prioritized

by Oui Thu May 14th, 2020 at 11:38:26 AM EST

Judges making more political decisions ... armed groups putting pressure on State Legislators ... the Fascist brown-shirts are part of "Lockdown Protest" across America today. The SCOTUS to decide on Separation of Powers in a Democracy and the Power of the Executive or Immunity (not corona) of President Trump and the Office he holds.

Emails Show Trump Nominee Involved in Shelving CDC Virus Guide to Reopening | TIME |


President Donald Trump arrives at a press briefing in the Rose Garden of the White House on May 11, 2020.

A former chemical industry executive nominated to be the nation's top consumer safety watchdog was involved in sidelining detailed guidelines to help communities reopen during the coronavirus pandemic, internal government emails show.

Now the ranking Democrat on the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee is questioning the role played by nominee Nancy Beck in the decision to shelve the guidelines. Beck is not a medical doctor and has no background in virology.

Trump Hoax: We'll Sue China for MEGA Debt

by Oui Tue May 12th, 2020 at 11:43:59 AM EST

[Updated]

Putting some facts on the table and a timeline of events in the Sino-American relations in 2020 …

Trump wishes to be forgiven for all past mistakes made and betting on the wrong horse of a laissez-faire approach to the “endemic flu-like virus” that had reached the mainland in Washington State, or at least the West Coast of America.

As previously noted, Trump abolished the DHS department for global pandemic watch and axed a crucial NSC member. Cornered, not knowing what a smart move is, the first chance he gets Trump cuts the WHO funding. Next he puts all blame on China for doing what it had to do: a complete lockdown to seal all travel from and to Wuhan and Hubei province.

Once he realizes he is all alone, he slams anyone and all who dare voice criticism. A small majority of Americans and the whole of the Global Community sees what a mess he has made of it, lies and propaganda and dithering along the way failing to set a coherent exit strategy. Building his castle on quicksand, just like a sudden sinkhole when one has not done basic research and gets caught by a backlash of nature and Planet Earth.

Failure In Leadership and Wishful Thinking

POTUS, his National Security Council and CDC head Redfield knew the status as soon as the "flu" epidemic was recognized and spreading in Wuhan, China in January.

Structural Assembly of SARS-CoV-2 Virus

by Oui Sun May 10th, 2020 at 09:34:18 AM EST

COVID-19: A promising cure for the global panic pandemic

    Highlights
    • SARS-COV-2 is structurally similar to SARS-COV.
    • The mechanism of SARS-COV-2 in the host cell may be comparable to SARS-COV.
    • SARS-CoV-2 invade the immune and nervous system.
    • There is an urgent need for novel treatment options for COVID-19.
    • Indian medicinal plants are likely to be potential drugs for the treatment of COVID-19.

The novel Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by SARS-CoV-2, which is the causative agent of a potentially fatal disease that is of great global public health concern. The outbreak of COVID-19 is wreaking havoc worldwide due to inadequate risk assessment regarding the urgency of the situation. The COVID-19 pandemic has entered a dangerous new phase. When compared with SARS and MERS, COVID-19 has spread more rapidly, due to increased globalization and adaptation of the virus in every environment.

Laissez-faire Handling Outbreak by PM Boris Johnson

by Oui Mon Apr 20th, 2020 at 09:20:57 AM EST

The failures of the Westminster elite on coronavirus are no surprise - so why do we let them run Wales?

Today's Sunday Times article reveals a staggering level of hubris, incompetence and callousness shown by the UK Government and some of its close group of advisors in their handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The report - published by a newspaper that wholeheartedly endorsed the Conservatives at the General Election - is perhaps the most damning article ever written about an UK government. It reveals that the entire response has been a shambles. This is a national catastrophe of a very British sort.

One of the UK Government's own scientific advisors has said that the UK could end up with the worst death toll in Europe. At least 15,000 people in the UK have already died of coronavirus, and perhaps many more since deaths outside hospitals remain underreported. These are children, grandchildren, parents and grandparents.

And given what we now know about the UK Government's early handling of the crisis, it's almost impossible to conclude that their incompetence has not contributed to the death toll.

We now know that back in January, Professor Neil Ferguson, one of the UK's leading infectious disease epidemiologists and a member of the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies, warned the government that this virus was potentially as lethal as the Flu Pandemic of 1918.

He highlighted the need for a "60% cut in the transmission rate" -- in other words social distancing and lockdown.

But Boris missed five Cobra meetings, not attending his first meeting until March.

Medicine Man Trump: My Sacraments Ain't Poison

by Oui Sat Apr 25th, 2020 at 07:35:33 PM EST

Wasn't Trump's Great Grandfather in search for gold in the Klondike Gold Rush but unfortunately got stuck in the State of Washington??

Trump the Lesser still has that pioneer spirit of the medicine man, snake oil and the easy sell to the destitute.

A fortnight ago this message from Bishop Mark Grenon to President Trump in the White House. Of course it got the President's ear when a Man of God comes as bearer of gold, frankincense and myrrh. In a chamber in the White House there is born a King of all Idiots across the New World.

Eye On Trade As Invisible China Virus Attacked

by Oui Thu Apr 23rd, 2020 at 09:55:28 PM EST

Preoccupied by Ukraine Quid-pro-Quo, Giuliani and cohorts, Impeachment trial, finishing trade talks phase One with China in January and the PR stunt to antagonize the global community at Davos.

o o o o o o o o o o

>> Zelensky who won the last fictional election for presidency in the Ukraine, found the door shut to the White House. The spring doldrums of Trump's lawyer Giuliani brought plenty of entertainment in U.S. Congress. The Democrats were easily defeated by a united front of red-hot Republicans. As the Impeachment Act ended in the Senate in January 2020, the invaders from China were well established across many states. As Trump so colorfully stated, he was caught off guard by this invisible enemy sent from Wuhan.

Sometimes God's creation moves in mysterious ways human kind just don't grasp. Although prophesized by virologists over a decade ago, science has no entry in the Republican led White House.

Well, one can put a virus to work to one's advantage of course. The virus spreads like wildfire in dense populations. Lo and behold, the large metropolitan areas in the US are in a majority BLUE states. So, who cares? Can't let blue lives of the elderly harm the New York Stock Exchange now, by far the BIGGEST financial center of Planet Earth. Please don't use that term or next you will be speaking about Green Energy, renewables - Koch Bros. are coughing up blood - and care for our planet to prevent further deterioration of air, water and soil.

The pandemic has used the fallacies of men to attack the most vulnerable of human species. Too late for any president of any colour to prevent the outbreak of a very contagious virus.

CIA-Man Saakashvili -- Soap Opera Extension

by Oui Thu Apr 23rd, 2020 at 09:04:58 AM EST

For some American entertainment during the woes of the coronavirus, a move by Pentagon hardliners to consolidate colonial power in Ukraine. After the coup-d'état of February 2014, the country continued to be rive with corruption. Too many millions disappeared in deep pockets of the oligarchs who adapted to the new Western masters.

After a stint as governor in Odessa under presidency of buddy Poroshenko, Saakashvili soon quit due to corruption he couldn't quite handle as a foreigner. His instant citizenship was just as easily removed instantly and Saakashvili sought and received refugee status in The Netherlands of Mark Rutte ... wink, wink!!

Zelensky who won the last fictional election for presidency in the Ukraine, found the door shut to the White House. The spring doldrums of Trump's lawyer Giuliani brought plenty of entertainment in U.S. Congress. The Democrats were easily defeated by a united front of red-hot Republicans.

Preaching Open Rebellion; Trump Unhinged

by Oui Sat Apr 18th, 2020 at 07:44:04 AM EST

Several bits of news items I posted, the larger picture is a U.S. President becoming unhinged as poll numbers fall and looking forward a double whammy recession for the greatest economy ever ... for the 1%. In adversity, the world sees true leaders and Trump is one prolific failure ... a loser. Held up the IRS payment of cheques to the American People because his signature should be on it. A gift from the White House, the President You have Chosen. His faithful in full lunacy calling Trump the Chosen One by the Almighty fulfilling the Book of the End of Times. Let the so-called Christians of the wealth preachers reread the Bible ... all that's prophecised has come to pass. The problem is in today's world where values are bungled, the people are following the wrong leaders. A dangerous phenomena is developing ... it was already in the cards when one cheats to get elected. Democracy doesn't work, it's been undermined by greed from Wall Street and the military-intelligence industrial complex.

Now to today's alarming headlines. First question asked as the Republican party bungled the Impeachment process, how to get rid of a dis-functional leader becoming more dangerous by the day?

New Colonialism: Reaping Profits Over Victims

by Oui Thu Apr 16th, 2020 at 11:31:28 AM EST

Missing solidarity or European Social-Democracy, the counterrevolution from the progressive Seventies to Conservatism and Pure Capitalism starting in the Reagan era. Beyond competition, earning decent wages and a basic right of healthcare, what the coronavirus pandemic lays bare is an open wound of a destitute America and many countries across the globe.

Washington DC was historically taught as being that shining city on the hill ... a close-up proves it to be quarrelling institutional powers dividing a great nation, not uniting peoples.

No one could EVER illustrate such division as a narcissistic president like Donald Trump. Every press briefing is an affront to what AMERICA STANDS FOR! It's just HORRIFIC that there are still so many followers from the hard working class to university educated persons following the populist policy of everyone for personal gain, others can literally die!

Masses of households living from pay check to pay check, falling ill or without medicine are in the waiting room of death. That was the America I saw as a 16-year old, the discrepancy and inequality has risen through Republican "leadership" to a alarming level. It's out there for everyone to see ... through social media and slowly through reports by journalists. It's more than dramatic ... it's like the horror of a New Civil War ... the worst of all wars!

A World of Emptiness - Near Financial Collapse

by Oui Tue Apr 14th, 2020 at 01:01:00 PM EST

COVID-19 Attack: A look at the empty New York City streets amid the coronavirus

    "The crisis has brought the economy to a near halt, and left millions of people out of work. But thanks to intervention on an unprecedented scale, a full-scale meltdown has been averted - for now."

How coronavirus almost brought down the global financial system | The Guardian |

n the third week of March, while most of our minds were fixed on surging coronavirus death rates and the apocalyptic scenes in hospital wards, global financial markets came as close to a collapse as they have since September 2008. The price of shares in the world's major corporations plunged. The value of the dollar surged against every currency in the world, squeezing debtors everywhere from Indonesia to Mexico. Trillion-dollar markets for government debt, the basic foundation of the financial system, lurched up and down in terror-stricken cycles.
