Nursing homes in Texas are now treating their elderly residents as prisoners after the state’s health dept. extended lockdowns until Sept. 29, which is also stopping families from visiting relatives with special needs.
Much like the state’s prison system, elderly residents are being told to stay in their rooms and can only take limited, supervised visits outside due to state-imposed rules by the governor.
One lady, Stephanie, who’s taking care of her intellectually disabled son in a state-managed facility, said she hasn’t see him since March 12, despite the fact the state only takes partial care of him.
“On March 13, I got a call from the facility saying that the governor imposed the visitation restrictions and that we were no longer allowed on campus,” she told Texas Scorecard, adding that her son, Petre, tested positive for the virus on July 7 despite the restrictions.
A “bipartisan” election integrity group linked to George Soros, Bill Gates, and the Chinese Communist Party war-gamed several 2020 election scenarios to formulate how to overthrow Donald Trump if he’s reelected.
The Transition Integrity Project (TIP), hailed by the media as a “bipartisan” effort comprised of about 80 political operatives, was apparently created to find available options for Democratic candidate Joe Biden should President Trump refuse to concede the election.
In one election scenario conducted last week, former Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, tasked to play Joe Biden, refused to concede the election, resulting in several Democrat-run states threatening to secede from the United States if Trump won a second term.
Three weeks ago, when looking at the staggering amount of cash piled up at the US Treasury thanks to a historic T-Bill issuance spree over the past three months, we said that it’s just a matter of if not when Trump gives the green light to unleash a historic spending spree to put as much of this record $1.8 trillion in the hands of American people and, more importantly, voters ahead of the November 3 election:
Democrats are pushing for a USD3 trillion package while the White House only wants USD1 trillion, and focused on a payroll tax cut rather than an extension to the USD600 weekly extension to unemployment benefits. The clock is ticking given we are days away from income supplements drying up at a time when millions are jobless and one in three Americans is not making a full rent or mortgage payment. Political speed is of the essence.
The US Treasury is of course sitting on a cash balance of USD1.8 trillion at this point. I don’t recall any taxes being paid to raise that sum – almost as if MMT were already a thing. (On which note, please see this report.) One wonders when this massive fiscal firepower is going to be unleashed; because surely no president wants to leave USD1.8 trillion to a successor?
Surely not indeed, and sure enough with some $1.7 trillion in cash still held by the Treasury at the Fed…

Officers with the Phoenix Police Department shot and killed a man when responding to a noise complaint about couple playing a video game, as the man answered the door with a pistol in one hand.
Ryan Whitaker, 40, had been playing video games with his girlfriend, Brandee Nees, into the night when he went to answer the door with a gun in his hand. Whitaker immediately began lowering his weapon and raised a hand in the air before he was shot in the back three times from point blank range.
Police shot Whitaker within seconds, failing to allow the Ahwatukee homeowner to respond, while he appeared to be disarming himself.
The fatal shooting took place on the night of May 22 after a dispatch call complained about the noise level. The unnamed caller suggested that there may have been fighting in order to hasten the police response time, according to AZ Central.

An immunocompromised New York City Councilman who underplayed the severity of his COVID-19 diagnosis in April now says that it was actually much worse, and hydroxychloroquine saved his life.
Paul Vallone, a Democrat who represents Queens, says he took the drug along with a ‘Z-pack’ antibiotic and drastically improved within days.
“I couldn’t breathe, very weak, couldn’t get out of bed. My doctor prescribed it. My pharmacy had it. Took it that day and within two to three days I was able to breathe,” Vallone told the New York Post, adding “Within a week I was back on my feet.”

The sell-by date of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s usefulness has expired. He should exit the public stage that he so obviously enjoys. His long tenure as a healthcare bureaucrat should come to an end. He has proven more adept as a showman than as a doctor.
We have now reached the stage where the most dangerous place in Washington, D.C. is between Anthony Fauci and a camera. If he’s not tossing out the first pitch at a baseball game (was that what that was?), he is preening in shades sitting by a pool.
Dr. Fauci, for good or ill, has been the commandant of the federal, state, and local response to the COVID-19 virus for these last many months. He has been the architect, if not the builder, of policies that have been inconsistent, unpredictable, and destructive.
He has opined on virtually every aspect of American life and its intersection with the virus and potential cures. While he has often said that his job is to focus solely on stopping the spread of the disease, he has enjoyed proffering his opinion on everything from baseball to lockdowns. For a guy who thinks his job is very narrowly focused, he sure has a broad range of opinions. And, he has a naïve attitude when it comes to the implications of his casual dicta.
His policies have resulted in an economic disaster, a public mental health crisis, and a secondary public health crisis that will become more visible in the coming months. And ultimately, his counsel has transformed America’s vision of itself, from our belief in individual rights to the role of government, in ways that may never revert back to the baseline of pre-COVID life.
Hasbro announced this week it is pulling the DreamWorks Trolls World Tour character doll Giggle ‘n Sing Poppy after complaints about the doll having a button like sensor in its crotch that plays giggles, gasps and other sounds of pleasure when pressed or triggered. The placement and sounds of the crotch button sensor raised concerns by parents that children would be conditioned to believe that letting someone touch them in their privates was okay. Hasbro said the button sensor was placed to make noises when the doll was in a seated position and that the inappropriate perception of the button sensor was “not intentional”, but one wonders if the working title for the design was ‘Giggle ‘n Gasp’, not Giggle ‘n Sing”.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious diseases expert (and untouchable purveyor of all that is true and holy in ‘science’ today), told a Brown University panel on Friday that probabilities of a highly effective COVID-19 vaccine “are not great.”
“We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be. We don’t know if it will be 50% or 60%. I’d like it to be 75% or more,” Fauci said (quoted by Reuters).
“But the chances of it being 98% effective is not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach.”

In what is a perfect display of the efficiency of governments in dealing with the coronavirus outbreak, police say a Virginia rape suspect who was released from jail due to Covid concerns turned right around and killed the woman who accused him as soon as he was let out.
Ibrahim E. Bouaichi shot and killed his accuser in late July after he was released from jail on April 9, according to Fox News.
He was indicted last year on charges including rape, strangulation and abduction. His accuser, Karla Elizabeth Dominguez Gonzalez, had testified against him in court in December of last year.
Bouaichi was jailed in Alexandria, Va., without bond until the pandemic hit, at which point his lawyers argued for his release until trial due to the virus “endangering” inmates. He was released by Circuit Court Judge Nolan Dawkins on $25,000 bond as a result.
Andrew Cuomo is the hero of the left.
New York state and Governor Cuomo had THE WORST Coronavirus death ratio in the world — higher than any state (except New Jersey) and higher than ANY COUNTRY!
Under Cuomo’s leadership thousands of New Yorkers were needlessly killed in nursing homes, adult care facilities and homes for people with disabilities.
After destroying his state now Governor Cuomo is setting up testing sites in several other states for some reason.
Andrew Cuomo helped establish COVID testing sites in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Cuomo also helped Houston set up two additional testing sites.
And Cuomo brought a COVID-19 testing team to Georgia.
Cuomo is spreading his medicine like Cuba shares doctors.
Who’s paying for all of this?
After having the worst COVID-19 record in the world Cuomo has no shame in lecturing other states on this deadly virus.
