But did you hear from God? Wow! I have been in some conversations on Facebook with some Safe Black Negro Pastors and Church Folk that confirm that they are just Selfish.
What you better recognize is that when you open them church doors and let folk come in that you are responsible for the outcome.
Report back after you are in the house! I’ll Wait!

Trump threatens to pull Republican convention out of North Carolina

The Political Agitator’s response: Damn Trump said my Governor Roy Cooper is playing politics. Really! If playing it safe is playing Politics then let the games continue. Thank you Mr. Governor! Oh and can’t wait to see what Van Holland Tarboro Tar River Times have to say. I’ll wait!

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump began a solemn Memorial Day railing against North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, ahead of the 2020 Republican National Convention, threatening to pull it out of Charlotte, where the convention is expected to be held August 24 to 27.

Trump contended that Cooper is “unable to guarantee” that the arena can be filled to capacity.

“I love the Great State of North Carolina, so much so that I insisted on having the Republican National Convention in Charlotte at the end of August,” Trump said in a series of tweets. “Unfortunately, Democrat Governor, @RoyCooperNC is still in Shutdown mood & unable to guarantee that by August we will be allowed full attendance in the Arena. In other words, we would be spending millions of dollars building the Arena to a very high standard without even knowing if the Democrat Governor would allow the Republican Party to fully occupy the space.” (Read more)

NC Governor Roy Cooper Coronavirus

I want to thank Governor Roy Cooper for stating that he will react to ReOpen based on the Science, the Facts and how the people follow the Guidelines. He said he will not react based on Emotions.

It is sad that some church folk want to make folk think that the Governor has something against the church.

Why are some folk so ignant to attempt to compare going to Walmart, Lowes and other places where folk are continuously moving while when one goes to church they will be sitting for a period of time?

It is a damn shame that the numerous Bishops that have died from the coronavirus has not even phrased some church folk. I guess they see it as a joke.

Well for me I will not be going into anybody’s church the rest of this year not because I am scared, but because I am going to be cautious about my comings and goings.

I go to work every day however where I work is a large space. I have a mask on and practice social distancing.

The Governor says he is in contact with the White House and others so I am going to leave it up to him to present guidelines and look at what the local governmental bodies are doing. Well the local government can not make policies that are less restrictive to what the Governor put in place but they can make things stricter. Oh they are not going to do that because they don’t want to deal with local folk who may challenge their policies.

I have a whole new outlook on some church folk since this coronavirus and I am following them to see how they continue to move forward. So far I don’t know of any local churches that have had an outbreak of the coronavirus and to me that is a good thing. I have heard that a couple of folk have supposedly contracted it through church services.

There are other places I will not be going as well. I will not be going to a sit down restaurant, a movie theater and anywhere that I would go that I will have to sit for a long period of time.

Now don’t get it twisted, I am talking about what I am not going to do and what I do have no bearing on what others want to do. Do you because I am going to do me.



In Response To Van Holland COVID-19 Report Criticizing Governor Roy Cooper

There are 452 COVID-19 deaths being reported by the NC Dept of Health and Human Services as of Monday.
And one of the first things you hear the governor talk about each press briefing is the number of deaths and overall cases in the state.
Here’s the problem I have with those number of deaths, of the 452 deaths, the governor has yet to go into details to explain that more than half of those deaths, 263 to be exact, are people that died in a nursing home, residential care facility, prison or some other type of assisted living facility. So almost 60% of the deaths in NC are people from one of the four types of facilities.
Now the part that bothers me about that is this….how in the world have 1,895 nursing home patients and 1,027 prisoners contracted the virus.
If nursing homes and prisons are checking their workers daily like they’re supposed to, there is no way in the world that many outbreaks should have taken place. Because nursing facilities were one of the first organizations that shutdown their facilty to outside people/visitors. But apparently that hasn’t helped.
And if the prison system has quarantined the prisoners in the infirmary like they should have, there shouldn’t be over 1,000 cases in the prison system.
I guess that’s why
the Secretary of Prisons Erik Hooks hasn’t talked much lately during the press briefings.

The Political Agitator’s response: So Van what is your point? It is obvious that either folk going into the prisons, nursing homes, residential care facilities and other assisted living facilities are bringing it in and/or it is the employees bringing it in. I strongly believe the employees are the strong carriers because they are the ones that are leaving the job daily and returning.

I strongly believe the majority of the cases are coming from community spread because some folk don’t just go to work and don’t wear mask at work and outside of work.

This is nothing but trying to discredit Governor Roy Cooper for doing what is right and what other states are doing. Governor Cooper is not responsible for folk not following the instructions. I see it daily in my coming and going because I am an Essential Worker.

Funny how the Republicans are the hold up on the National and State Levels and Van has said nothing about how them Ignant Racist Special Cs conduct business.

So Van Holloman what are you suggesting should be done to deal with the coronavirus? Curmilus Butch Dancy II 2020

North Carolina to begin Phase 1 of reopening plan Friday afternoon, will allow certain businesses to reopen

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) — Gov. Roy Cooper announced that North Carolina will enter Phase One of the state’s three-part plan to “reignite” its economy, allowing most stores and parks to open but keep businesses like bars and salons closed.
In a news conference Tuesday, Cooper said his new Executive Order will officially enact Phase One as of 5 p.m. on Friday, May 8.

The revised stay-at-home order will allow retail stores that were previously designated as “nonessential”–including clothing, sporting goods and houseware stores–to welcome customers for the first time since March. The businesses, however, must screen their employees for symptoms, ensure capacity never exceeds 50 percent of the building’s total fire capacity, maintain social distancing among shoppers, and conduct routine maintenance and sanitation.
While Tuesday’s announcement might be positive news for many North Carolinians, several key areas of the economy will remain off limits, including bars, movie theaters, bowling alleys, concert halls, salons, barbershops, gyms, and swim clubs.

Restaurants, meanwhile, will still be limited to take out and delivery service only.

Dr. Mandy Cohen, North Carolina’s Secretary of Health and Human Services, encouraged all North Carolinians to wear face coverings in public, though there will be no statutory requirement. Some counties, including Durham County, do require face coverings while in public spaces.
Cohen emphasized mask-wearing as part of the “three Ws”: wear masks, wash hands and wait in line six feet apart.

In addition, North Carolinians still may not gather in groups of 10 or more people, and visitation restrictions will remain in place for nursing homes and correctional facilities.
According to Cooper, Phase One could end and transition into Phase Two as early as May 22, if North Carolina continues to see a sustained leveling or decrease in the number of new cases each day and number of hospitalizations, a decrease in the percentage of total positive tests, and a decrease in the number of emergency room visits for COVID-like symptoms. If not, the order could be extended.
North Carolina’s original Stay-at-Home order
went into effect on March 30, with an original expiration date of April 29. The Governor, however, extended that order through May 8.
Here are more details about the three-phase plan to reopen the state’s economy:
PHASE 1: revised stay-at-home order

  • Retailers and services will need to implement social distancing practices, cleaning and other protocols. Any businesses specifically closed by the executive order–including bars and restaurants for dine-in service, nail and hair salons, gyms and movie theatres–must stay closed.
  • Gatherings must not exceed 10 people
  • Parks can open, as long as people are maintaining social distancing and not gathering in groups of 10 or more people
  • Face coverings are recommended in public
  • Visitor and gathering restrictions remain in place for nursing homes and other congregate living settings
  • Employers are asked to encourage employees to continue teleworking

PHASE 2: about 2-3 weeks after Phase 1

  • Lift stay-at-home order with strong encouragement for vulnerable populations to continue staying at home
  • Allow limited opening of restaurants, bars and other businesses that can follow strict safety protocols, including reduced capacity, increased cleaning measures and social distancing measures
  • Allow gathering at houses of worship and entertainment venues at reduced capacity
  • More people will be allowed at gatherings, but that number has not yet been specified
  • Face coverings will still be recommended in public
  • Public playgrounds will open
  • Restrictions on nursing home and other congregate living setting visitors and gatherings will continue

PHASE 3: about 4-6 weeks after Phase 2

  • Restrictions for vulnerable populations will be loosened, with encouragement to continue practicing social distancing
  • Increased capacity at restaurants, bars, other businesses, houses of worship and entertainment venues will be allowed, but that specific number has not been determined
  • The number of people allowed at gatherings will increase
  • Continue rigorous restrictions on nursing homes and other congregate living settings
