Those of us who have served in the military or attended college have already learned that pure freedom can only get you so far; many things are achievable only through teamwork.

“tensions with Trump were quick to emerge and Fauci has now reportedly been blocked from appearing on major media platforms. He made his “first wave” remark on a National Institutes of Health webcast on Monday, following sobering testimony to the Senate last week.
On Wednesday, the White House taskforce met at the Department of Education in Washington. Fauci told CBS he participated remotely. He was not present for a press briefing.
Most senior Republicans and officials including Vice-President Mike Pence now say masks are advisable. But Trump has refused to wear a mask in public or advocate that Americans do so and there has been no national mandate. In some states governors have refused to mandate masks or even recommend them and in some cases mayors have been banned from doing so. It has also been reported that the White House is seeking to persuade Americans they will just have to live with the risk of infection.”

While states shatter single-day records for new cases and deaths, Trump is ever more intent on concealing the numbers behind Fauci’s warnings. Effective Wednesday, his administration has ordered hospitals to send all coronavirus patient information to a central database in Washington instead of the CDC. With such vital information in these devious hands, it’s inevitable that the statistics will be manipulated to benefit Trump.

Under the policy, quietly announced late last week, hospitals are now required to report directly to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) on the number of COVID-19 patients each facility is treating, available beds and ventilators, and other data.

The CDC had been collecting that information from the start of the pandemic on its National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN), which the agency describes as the country's most widely used health care-associated infection tracking system.

The administration argues the new approach will streamline the compilation of patient data and improve tracking efforts, but experts fear it will harm the quality of the information. They also worry the move is part of a concerted effort to sideline the CDC at a time when President Trump is seeking to deflect blame for his administration's response to the pandemic.

"Placing medical data collection outside of the leadership of public health experts could severely weaken the quality and availability of data, add an additional burden to already overwhelmed hospitals and add a new challenge to the U.S. pandemic response," Thomas File Jr., president of the Infectious Diseases Society of America, said in a statement.

I think they should send it to HHS as required, but continue sending it to the CDC as well. Hey, if Dump isn't planning on altering the data he shouldn't have any objection.

Pompeo did not mention freedom of the press in his remarks, but he repeatedly attacked the New York Times, accusing it of purveying Marxist ideology. The secretary of state has been rebuked by human rights groups for his selectivity in applying norms.
He has for example, been a staunch supporter of the Saudi monarchy, in the face of evidence of atrocities from its war in Yemen, its use of torture and the murder of the Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. The commission report refers to Saudi Arabia as a “flagrant human rights abuser”.
Pompeo, who is widely believed to harbour ambitions to run as a religious conservative candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024, infused Thursday’s launch event with a heavily religious tone, beginning with an invocation by Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.

Trump said: “I’m not losing, because those are fake polls.”

Not only did Trump deny the hard data, he also refused to say if he will accept the result of November’s presidential election if he comes out the loser.

“I have to see,” he said. “Look … I have to see. No, I’m not going to just say yes. I’m not going to say no, and I didn’t last time either.”

Anthony Scaramucci, Trump’s former director of communications, tweeted: “The Chris Wallace interview is Biden’s campaign ad.”

“I'd remind anyone participating in this shameful occupation of an American city that they cannot hide behind Donald Trump forever. The willingness of officials to participate in such a flagrant abuse of power exposes a rot that goes deep into the agency, and that rot must be removed.
To start, any official who signed off on this unconstitutional operation will be identified and held legally responsible. The militarization of DHS must be ended. And the absurd expansion of authority must be reversed. Our border and customs agencies must and will be restricted to securing the border and stopping smuggling, while more appropriate agencies handle refugees, asylum-seekers and others seeking help.“

  • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a series of reform measures last month that included a ban on chokeholds.
  • Police Commissioner Dermot Shea: "They have screwed this city up so much in a short period of time, it’s going to take us a time to get it — our arms around it."

As we look back nearly 60 years ago, I will acknowledge that times and views were different. It's unpopular to even try to explain how people thought back then. There was a pretty clear line between black and white then, and was unusual to see a white face protesting.
The idea that now in 2020 it's considered racist and strongly called out, is a tribute to the work done by the Freedom Fighters of those days.

Cotton went on to explain that, according to the book of Revelations, “it is absolutely necessary for the Jews to be in Israel” so that “the Beast can be destroyed at the Second Coming of Christ.”

Probably the most frightening combination in history: religious zealots eager to see the ultimate war thinking it will bring their savior, and these zealots with their hands within reach of the US' nuclear armory.
