Can we close the County to all Natives from the idiotic tribes that are opening casinos? Also close the roads that lead to the casinos on the County side of the reservation/rancheria? These idiots are even planning to have senior only hours. That’s exactly what seniors need to be enticed to do. Better change the BINGO cards to COVID cards while they are at it. Another example of Native tribes more interested in money than safety.

I think some people are just tired of the ineptitude of those people who are making economic viability almost impossible. There is a long tradition of the elderly and poverty stricken being underrepresented in every way by our society.

Mikes blowing off steam, and tired of the BS we’ve been forced to swallow. Those in government should have their pay cut, period, and maybe lose that cosy pension. You can’t spend money without it coming back to haunt the next generation of tax indentured servants of the political spend a holics.

Why is it crude? We let prisoners out of jail because being trapped in such a small space is a “death sentence” but you leave your grandparents in a similar space and pretend to be shocked when they die. If anything my idea offers compassion. They need space and activities, to be safe from the virus and for mental health to keep from dying from depression after we have abandoned them for their own “safety” in their cess pool of a nursing home. And aparently were mad at the casinos for ebdanging life’s, 2 birds one stone. Temporality confiscate the casinos, put the vulnerable in them for increased safety, get employees who’ve already had the virus for their increased immunity to tend to them, put the national guard around the casino to keep isolation from the virus til we build herd immunity keeping everyone safe. How is this a bad plan?

• H.R.6666 (TRACE) Act was introduced by IL Rep. Bobby Rush for a $100 billion grant to NGOs and organizations to carry out contract tracing throughout the U.S. just months after attending the Aspen Institute’s conference in Africa which was paid for in part by Bill Gates, Rockefellers, and the Democracy Fund. • Dr. Paul Farmer of Partners in Health was also at the Aspen Institute with Bobby Rush, who is currently running the contact tracing program in Massachusetts and beyond. Dr. Jonathan Epstein of EcoHealth Alliance whose $3.7 million NIH funding was recently cut off due to ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, was also in attendance, among others. • Former World Bank President and co-founder of Partners in Health Jim Yong Kim is the man contacting governors to implement the contact tracing program in multiple states. • Bill Gates has funded Partners in Health over $44 million between the Gates Foundation and Global Fund, and goes back decades with this group, working on numerous agendas and initiatives together.

Bobby Rush Has Been Busy • Rush has a history of pay-to-play. • Rush was a Pastor at the Beloved Community Christian Church in Chicago, where non-profit organizations complained about Rush’s inordinate amount of government aid he received. By 2013, they had racked up $195,000 in tax delinquencies that went back a decade, including property tax, income tax, and employee withholding tax. As of 2018, five percent of Rush’s congressional salary is being garnished to repay more than $1 million he owed on a delinquent loan. • Rush was a participant in the Aspen Institute Congressional Program for Africa’s Economic, Security, and Development Challenges and the U.S. Role, which took place August 12-19, 2019 in Kigali, Musanze, and Muhanga, Rwanda. There were seven other participants from the U.S. Congress, all of whom were Democrats from CA, IL, NY, and MO, except for Republican Fred Upton from Michigan, who was the former chairman of the committee on energy and commerce.

A Scholar from EcoHealth Alliance was Also in Attendance with Bobby Rush – $3.7m EcoHealth Alliance Grant from NIH was Cut Off Due to Ties to Wuhan Institute of Virology Another scholar at this event Bobby Rush attended, that was funded by Bill Gates and friends, was Dr. Jonathan Epstein who is the Vice President for Science and Outreach of EcoHealth Alliance, founded in 1971. He is a veterinarian and disease ecologist who studies emerging zoonotic viruses such as Nipah and Ebola, along with SARS, MERS, and coronavirus. His specialty is bats. “In 2004, Dr. Epstein was part of a team of Chinese, Australian, and American scientists that identified horseshoe bats as the natural wildlife reservoir for SARS coronavirus in China. He also worked on the first team to investigate animal reservoirs of MERS coronavirus in Saudi Arabia, following its discovery in 2012.” EcoHealth Alliance is the non-profit that received the $3.7 million NIH grant back in 2014 to study the coronavirus and had been working with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. EcoHealth Alliance’s President Dr. Peter Daszak said that none of the funds were given to the Wuhan Institute, but after Trump raised concerns, NIH contacted EcoHealth and instructed… Read more »

I’m sorry Kym for taking up so much space but I believe it’s important for the few that will take the time to read this. As if the drones from China weren’t eye-opener enough, we’ve now moved into contact tracers digging into your personal life, quarantine camps, mandatory masks in public despite Dr. Fauci stating they don’t protect you, and mobile units showing up at your door. Gosh this sure sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Dr. Michael Ryan (Executive Director of WHO Health Emergencies Program) spoke at a press briefing on April 13, 2020. He stated “WHO has been clear that there is no specific evidence that suggest a mask may protect you from infection. And equally a mask may provide protection from others if you happen to be symptomatic and coughing it may stop you from contaminating someone else, but there are a number of issues around the broader use of masks.” He followed up with the fact that the masks would have to be disinfected consistently, and putting the masks on and off means you are touching the mask and therefore possibly contaminating it. The WHO believes that masks are pointless unless they are in addition to a much… Read more »

The organization that controls thwith political class is merely the ultra wealthy and the ones who have connections to the tax exempt foundations.

People who haven’t researched tax exempt foundations and the relationship between government and corporations will never understand what is taking place.

People have been educated in non critical thinking arenas and our worship of Hollywood culture has lowered the bar for our children in the arena of life.

Ooogie boogie wallah caballa. There. Trump is exonerated with the same level of proof as Democrat evidence they wanted to use to indict on Russian collusion. Which the Democrats failed to do despite spending millions of government money trying as hard as they could.

As for the actual impeachment, guess what. Trump was really, truly, actually acquitted. Of course that was a party line vote just as the impeachment was a party line vote. And I expect that House rules will be or already have been amended so that the Democrats never has to go through the stinking political fiasco themselves that they created trying to unseat Trump. You of course will continue to believe just what suits your political agenda as said above. Conspiracy stuff that can never be discredited for the true believer.

All the immunity given to Clinton associates who never testified against her
VP Biden family members raking in big money from Russian & Chinese companies while he is in office! Unbelieiveable

The “dark minded” liberal crowd has the nerve to label something a conspiracy and many times they turn out to be reality & complete abuse of power.

Putting COVID-19 fatalities in context.

People should note that this hour’s national death total for COVID-19 is 94,464, so the 150,000 is a projection, which we all hope not to approach or exceed. Just putting that out to preemptively thwart possible criticism that people are dying EVERY DAY of the coronavirus, so the total is always going up. Yes, it is and will for a while.

Here’s what troubles me. According to a Fox News reporter, “Our job is to protect our viewers from those who hate them.”
