NC lieutenant governor: Reopen schools without mask mandate

The Political Agitator’s response: They say when you see a fool let them be a fool. Now Dan Forest is a fool when it comes to lifting the mask mandate. Anyone who support that mess is just a ignant as he is. See that is that Trump S…! These folk are dangerous!

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina Republican Lt. Gov. Dan Forest said on Wednesday that he would immediately reopen all K-12 public schools without requiring students or teachers to wear masks if he were governor.

The comment came during a Wednesday morning news conference in which the gubernatorial candidate and other top Republicans pushed for Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper to move to Plan A with fully in-person classes.

“I don’t think so,” Forest said when asked whether he’d mandate masks in schools. “No. I don’t think there’s any science that backs that up. That’s my personal opinion.”

But Dr. Deborah Birx, coronavirus response coordinator for the White House coronavirus task force, has called for schools to reopen with clear safety guidelines in place that encourage mask wearing and physical distancing.

Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, told a committee of U.S. senators on Wednesday that a mask could be more effective than a vaccine in protecting people from the coronavirus.

Despite overwhelming evidence that mask wearing reduces COVID-19 transmission, Forest said he’d undo the statewide mask mandate ordered by Cooper and would instead allow individual districts to dictate their own plans for keeping students safe.

“When I’m governor, I would lift the mask mandate for the state and allow individual freedom to decide whether they wear a mask,” Forest said. (Read more)

Should Trump And The GOP Be Charged With Malfeasance In Connection With The Almost 200,000 Deaths

SYMONDSEZ:

Someone recently said that Trump and the GOP should only be charged with malfeasance in connection with the almost 200,000 DEATHS of our family members and friends in the COVID-19 virus pandemic in America.

I think it goes quite a bit further than merely “malfeasance” (i.e., wrongdoing by a public official), don’t you?

The entire GOP has been complicit in almost 200,000 mass murders by depraved indifference committed by Trump, all of which the GOP was fully aware. Trump and the entire GOP sat in silence and did NOTHING whatsoever to either prevent those DEATHS or lessen them in severity.

How can you describe either Trump’s or the GOP’s horrific, ongoing inaction regarding the almost 200,000 DEATHS caused by the COVID-19 virus pandemic in our country as anything other than MASS MURDER?

Trump KNEW the extent of the deadly danger that the COVID-19 virus posed to our society, as he has recently ADMITTED and which has been widely publicized but, despite his admitted knowledge, Trump allowed the COVID-19 virus to ravage and continue that ravaging of our entire population without taking ANY action whatsoever to prevent it or at least lessen its deadly effect upon us.

Trump has allowed these DEATHS to go on and on for the pathetic reason that he wanted to protect his own chance of being reelected. And that, of course, sprung out of fear that he would have to answer to the SDNY for the many crimes he has committed in the State of New York.

Therefore, Trump committed the MASS MURDERS of hundreds of thousands of our family members and friends merely to protect his own profoundly worthless self.

“Intent” is a well-known requisite element of a MURDER charge. Intent was, and STILL IS, present in Trump’s actions and inactions. In addition, the entire GOP has been and STILL IS complicit in Trump’s ongoing murderous behavior. Both Trump and the GOP should be charged with MASS MURDER and put in prison for the rest of their natural lives.

First-degree murderers must have the specific intent to end a human life, which does not necessarily have to correspond to the actual victim. A murder in which the killer intends to kill but kills either the wrong person or random people would still constitute first-degree murder.

Furthermore, under many state laws, killing through action showing a “depraved indifference” to human life can qualify as murder in the first degree.

To constitute “depraved indifference,” the defendant’s conduct must be ‘so wanton, so deficient in a moral sense of concern, so lacking in regard for the life or lives of others, and so blameworthy as to warrant the same criminal liability as that which the law imposes upon a person who intentionally causes a crime.’ Depraved indifference focuses on the risk created by the defendant’s conduct, not the injuries actually resulting.”

Therefore, given the above facts, how else can you describe the horrific behavior of Trump and the entire GOP other than as mass murder by depraved indifference?

President Donald Trump Vs Bob Woodward Book About COVID-19 Being Downplayed

I don’t like to get into the assumption thing something that can’t be proven.

With Trump record out of all of the things he been called out on and folk still supported what he said, I would think that they would have supported him downplaying it then and now.

Since he is still downplaying it even after we have heard the recording, so I wonder what difference would it have made?

He has told and continue to tell folk to do Absentee Voting and go to the Polls here in NC too.

So unless it was a crime what he did, what difference does it make?

My thing is he lied and that he continues to prove he is a liar.

Now for Woodward is what he did a crime?

I see what he did as what normal folk would do that have a complaint be it on their job, a rape case and other, some folk don’t come out then but come out later.

Again the only thing that bothers me is the President is a liar and it has been proven.

This have not made me look at him any different than I have since he became President.

And in my closing, the President is the one that is running the country so to compare Woodward holding information to the President’s standards ain’t for me.

Now as bad as the COVID is and folk have lost their lives, I find it hard to believe that the President have not said this stuff in front of others that too could have informed us.

I have a problem with Dr. Fauci’s response when he said he don’t think the President intentionally downplayed the COVID. But then again he report to who?

I don’t like talking about some things that is based on opinion, I like to base my opinions on facts. So therefore I don’t know if Woodward telling it earlier would have saved lives or not.

WATCH: CNN’s Tapper shuts down Navarro interview over insults and lies about Trump’s COVID-19 response

On Sunday morning “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper cut short an interview with White House trade advisor Peter Navarro after the Donald Trump appointee insulted CNN’s coverage of the COVID-19 health crisis and refused to answer questions about why the president lied to the public about it.

Over a combative nine minutes, the CNN host repeatedly asked Navarro about the taped comments the president made about the coronavirus pandemic in an interview with Bob Woodward and how they conflicted with his public statements.

With Navarro continually calling citing the president’s comments “cherry-picking” and refusing to address direct questions, Tapper finally called an end to the interview and then fact-checked the White House adviser after he was taken off the screen.

“He knew it was deadlier than the flu and he was lying to the American public two weeks later,” Tapper accused.

“Jake, you’re cherry-picking,” Navarro shot back.

“I’m not cherry-picking. He was not honest with the American people. you’re not answering the question,” the CNN host pressed.

“You’re not honest with the American people. CNN is not honest with the American people. You want to go there?” Navarro replied which led Tapper to call the interview off. (Read more)

‘I’m going to interrupt you’: Chris Wallace destroys Trump adviser’s ‘fog of war’ talking points on COVID

Trump campaign adviser Steve Cortes on Sunday downplayed the revelations that President Donald Trump misled the American people about the severity of novel coronavirus pandemic.

In an interview with Fox News, Cortes argued that Trump made the admission to journalist Bob Woodward in the “fog of war.”

“Why not level with the American people, Steve?” Fox News host Chris Wallace asked.

“This was the fog of war, biological war,” Cortes insisted.

“I’m going to interrupt you right there,” Wallace interjected. “It wasn’t the fog of war. On January 28, the president got his presidential daily brief, the top intelligence in the Oval Office. And at that point, his national security adviser, Robert O’Brien said that this is the biggest challenge you’re going to face in your entire presidency.” (Read more)

Dr. Fauci Comes To Trump’s Defense: I ‘Didn’t Get Any Sense’ President Was ‘Distorting’ Coronavirus Pandemic

WASHINGTON, DC - APRIL 22: Dr. Anthony Fauci (R), director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, participates in the daily coronavirus task force briefing at the White House on April 22, 2020 in Washington, DC.

The Political Agitator’s response: This does not change the fact that Trump lied. When Fauci prove that the audio I heard was not Factual then I don’t want to hear a damn thing he has to say about that part. Now he need to stick with the science part and not the journalist part. Trump lied and it has been documented so move forward.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a key member of the White House’s coronavirus response team, came to President Donald Trump’s defense late Wednesday, telling Fox News that he does not believe Trump intentionally “distorted” information about the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier Wednesday, veteran journalist Bob Woodward released excerpts of his forthcoming book on the president — excerpts that came from nearly 20 hours of conversation with Trump — including a passage that suggests Trump deliberately downplayed the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic in order to tamp down Americans’ panic.

LUCAMA — In a packed meeting room, three Lucama residents called for Commissioner David Johnson to step aside over allegations that the incumbent has used racial slurs when referring to town employees and the town’s first African American commissioner.

Gladys Martinez, Helen Torres and Mariann Crabtree called for the commissioner to step down from his position on Monday.

Martinez did not mince words, pointedly repeating the offensive language Johnson’s been accused of using, including the N-word.

“I am going to say it like it is, like it was said,” Martinez said. “If I would have known it at the last meeting, I would have addressed it at that time. I want you to know that I have got just as many white friends as I do African American and we talk straight to each other and it broke their heart too.”

“I could not believe that it was going on in my town. Someone in another town came up and asked me what is going on in Lucama, that one commissioner is calling Commissioner Uzzell and the other African American workers the N-word,” Martinez said, referring to Commissioner Patricia Uzzell, the first African American to sit on the board.

Trump Tweets Video With ‘White Power’ Chant, Then Deletes It

image

The Political Agitator’s response: What is in you will come out and Trump has done a damn good job showing what is in him.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump on Sunday tweeted approvingly of a video showing one of his supporters chanting “white power,” a racist slogan associated with white supremacists. He later deleted the tweet and the White House said the president had not heard “the one statement” on the video.

The video appeared to have been taken at The Villages, a Florida retirement community, and showed dueling demonstrations between Trump supporters and opponents.

“Thank you to the great people of The Villages,” Trump tweeted. Moments into the video clip he shared, a man driving a golf cart displaying pro-Trump signs and flags shouts ’white power.” The video also shows anti-Trump protesters shouting “Nazi,” “racist,” and profanities at the Trump backers.

“There’s no question″ that Trump should not have retweeted the video and “he should just take it down,” Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., told CNN’s “State of the Union.” Scott is the only Black Republican in the Senate.

“I think it’s indefensible,” he added. (Read more)

Trump shares Candace Owens interview saying ‘George Floyd was not a good person’

The Political Agitator’s response: The DCN Super Ignant Safe Negro Black Woman Awards goes to ….

US president Donald Trump has shared an interview in which conservative activist Candace Owens describes George Floyd as a symbol of a “broken culture in black America today” and insists that “he was not a good person”.

Mr Floyd died last month in Minneapolis after a police officer pinned him to the ground with a knee to the neck for nearly nine minutes. The killing has sparked days of protests across the US against racism and police brutality, and also demonstrations around the world.

But as the Black Lives Matters movement runs into its 12th consecutive day, with demonstrators calling for police reform and an end to systemic racism, Ms Owens said she had been left ‘sickened’ by the “fact that he [Mr Floyd] has been held up as a martyr”.

In an interview with radio host Glenn Beck, who posted it to Twitter before it was retweeted by President Trump, Ms Owen said: “George Floyd was not a good person. I don’t care who wants to spin that, I don’t care how CNN wants to make you think that he had just turned his life around.”

“The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me.” (Read more)

As They Scream Voter Fraud, Trump And His Press Secretary May Have Voted Illegally

WASHINGTON – Even as they both attack the idea of voting by mail, President Donald Trump and his new press secretary may have voted by mail illegally, using residential addresses on their registrations that were not their residences.

Kayleigh McEnany cast Florida ballots in 2018 using her parents’ address in Tampa, even though she lived in Washington, D.C., and held a New Jersey driver’s license.  Trump cast a Florida ballot this year using a business address in Palm Beach, where he had promised the town government he would not live.

“If Florida is not really your primary residence, then it’s inappropriate for you to be registered as a voter in Florida,” said Ciara Torres-Spelliscy, a fellow at the Brennan Center and a professor at Stetson University in Florida.

McEnany did not respond to HuffPost queries about either her or her boss’s voter registration discrepancies. Providing false information on a registration in Florida is a felony punishable by up to five years in state prison. (Read more)

Trump Is A Player

Trump has been a player for nearly 4 years. He has almost played out because only got a few more months now and games will be over.

He is a problem but the problem I have is those who know he is a bully with a pulpit and play all kinds of games but never call his hand.

But the Van Hollands and the like are constantly talk about Governor Roy Cooper because he is trying to save Lives!

Folk say Black folk Play the Race Card. It is damn shame when they say Black folk play the Race Card but when we fight for equality and other, all folk win.

Trump plays a Caucasian when he is around certain folk. He plays being Black because he has some Ignant Safe Negro Black Folk who support him. He plays being a scientist. He plays being a doctor. He plays being a doctor. He plays Military. He plays Church. And lastly he does a damn good job playing being President.

I challenge all folk to join me in November and remove this trump card from the deck.

Trump says he will deploy military if state officials can’t contain protest violence

WASHINGTON — As the sound of sirens wailed and flash bangs popped across the street, President Donald Trump announced from the Rose Garden that he would use the U.S. military to stop the riots across the county that have been sparked by the death of George Floyd.

“I am mobilizing all federal and local resources, civilian and military, to protect the rights of law abiding Americans,” Trump said in the extraordinary address, which was delivered as police fired tear gas outside to push protesters back from the White House.

“If a city or state refuses to take the actions necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them,” Trump said, referring to himself as “your president of law and order and an ally of all peaceful protesters.”

To activate the military to operate in the U.S., Trump would have to invoke the 213-year-old Insurrection Act, which four people familiar with the decision had told NBC News he planned to do. (Read more)

Trump 1st It Was Open Your Churches, Now Open Your Schools

Trump got Ignant Black Negro Pastors and Church folk wanting to open their churches. Now he want the schools opened.

So what is Trump going to tell us next?

Oh Trump is thinking about moving the Republican Convention out of North Carolina because Governor Roy Cooper has not completely ReOpened the State. Well don’t think about it just do the damn thing. MOVE it!

It is a damn shame how we as Black Folk focus on the wrong things instead of what is really going on.

In this time of a pandemic whereby Black folk are the most vulnerable, it is sad that Ignant Black Negro Pastors and Church folk are listening to Trump and Racist Republicans. It makes me wonder what God do these Pastors and Church folk serve?

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!
