Northam At Beach No Mask

-
How Awkward!  No Mask
and he’s about to make masks mandatory.
-
If he forgot his Mask
-
Why didn’t he just wear his KKK Hood?

And where’s the Social Distancing?  Talk about a Hypocrite!

The PravdaMedia Trump Derangement Syndrome

-
The commentary by Roanoke’s Tom Taylor is an outstanding description of the PravdaMedia TDS and it’s major disservice to the American People.
How sad that such an important component of The American System has degraded to such a sad and negative state.

-
The heartbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome
 “It’s also unsettling to realize much of the news media, like Congressional Democrats, are obviously more interested in defeating President Trump in November than in the welfare of the nation.”

WSJ:  The ‘Liberal Leaning’ Media Has Passed Its Tipping Point 
A return to balance would be commercially unviable. The best solution may be an honest embrace of bias.
By Van Gordon Sauter  A former president of CBS News
“To many journalists, objectivity, balance and fairness—once the gold standard of reporting—are not mandatory in a divided political era and in a country they believe to be severely flawed. That assumption folds neatly into their assessment of the president.”

NYT A National Disgrace

-
The NYT saw fit to paint over Memorial Day with Race Baiting By The Editorial Board, clearly a pathetic collection of disrespectful malcontents masquerading as ‘journalists’.
-
-
NYT:  Why Does the U.S. Military Celebrate White Supremacy?
(Really - This For Memorial Day)
-
-
Inserting Race Baiting into this hollowed day clearly dishonors the over one million service men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and liberty.
-
This piece of trash was published by the NYT to coincide with Memorial Day.
Clearly it was Not Fit To Comment upon in this Blog on Memorial Day.
It was Not Fit To Print in any American publication on Memorial Day.
A pox be on the NYT and all those who saw fit to propagate this trash on this very hallowed day.
What kind of sick people work at the NYTs?

Churches Open: It’s Their Choice

-
Trump is both asking and demanding the states to open the Churches of all denominations and faiths, Now.
-
The PravdaMedia immediately retaliated with negative charges and challenges to the Presidents ability to ‘Open the Churches’ and the case for doing so.
They submerge the fact that Trump demands that the Churches ‘be open’ means free from government ‘lock down’.
That means it’s the Churches’ decision and those of the parishioners who will attend and when!
Something about The First Amendment to the US Constitution states "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof."
-
As for The President’s authority to intervene on behalf of the Churches First Amendment Rights:
It was  Republican President Eisenhower who sent marshals and federal troops to enforce integration and protect the nine Black students at Little Rock Central High School where he ‘opened the doors’.
It then was the parents and students decision to enter and attend.
On September 24, 1957 the President ordered the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army to Little Rock and federalized the entire 10,000-member Arkansas National Guard, taking it out of Democrat Gov. Faubus's control and confining it to barracks.

-
Trump orders governors to open churches ‘right now
 “With the prospect of thousands of California churches defiantly opening at the end of the month and President Donald Trump threatening to use unclear authority to make it happen even faster, Gov. Gavin Newsom announced Friday that the state will soon release guidelines to resume in-person religious services.”

Michigan Gov & AG On MisDirected Rants

-
Michigan D.Gov Gretchen Whitmer has been on a rant over lock-downs and closures extending into mid-June and engaging in a running verbal harangue with Trump ostensibly in an effort to get a shot as Biden’s VP.
Something about squeaky wheel gets the grease.
-
Her Mi.D.AG Dana Nessel has jumped into the political spotlight by threatening to arrest Ford executives because Trump didn’t wear a mask in his tour of the Covid-Ventilator Plant.
-
Unfortunately for many Michigan residents, living downstream from the Edenville dam, these Elected Officials were not managing their responsibilities dealing with the health and safety of their citizens!
The result was major Dam failures and the devastation those failures have caused.
-
Feds revoked failed Edenville dam's license in 2018 over inability to handle big floods
-
But apparently Gov. Whitmer was too busy with other issues to get a Fix-It Plan in-place to resolve the Dam Issues and this month’s rains proved FERC Inspectors correct.
-
Not to be left out AG Nessel also played a major role in this disaster.  She jumped upon the Dam Operators for lowering the level of water behind the dam to help mitigate the issues FERC had raised.
Nessel hammered the Dam Operators because the lowered water levels were detrimental to the mussels living in the reservoir.
-
Yet another win for the Endangered Species Act and environmental activists throughout the world --  not so much a win for those people impacted!
-
Now the  Gov and her AG are promising retribution for any and all who are associated with this Dam failure. Really?
Will the voters hold the Gov and AG responsible for their malfeasance in this disaster?  Probably Not.
Democrats are very astute at redirection, misdirection and pointing the finger at others – NY Gov Cuomo is teaching graduate classes on those skills as we type.

NY Cuomo Continues To Shrink

-
Reminiscent of the movie “Honey I Shrunk The Kids”
-
NY.D.Gov Cuomo continues a downward spiral after much PravdaMedia adulation over his slick highly professional video presentations.
A highly effective misdirection from the reality that NY is the epicenter of the Covid-19 Pandemic and Gov. Cuomo has done lots more talking and whining than effective management.
Not a believer in ‘the buck stops here’ management concept.

Roanoke Flooding 5-20-2020 Again

-
Roanoke Flooding Again Thanks To Snail Darters and Log Perch!
The taxpayers paid $72-million dollars to implement ‘flood control’ along the Roanoke River in Roanoke.
As luck would have it in Big Lick, someone found Snail Darters and Log Perch in the river
(honk if you or someone you know has ever seen one).
For real flood control the River bottom would have to be significantly dredged-down – but thanks to the fish, the bottom could Not be touched!
The outcome is that instead of ‘flood control’, that the taxpayers paid for, the people of Roanoke got river bank beautification and chronic flooding and misery every time there’s a significant rain storm.
Roanokers just love that ‘endangered species’ act.

Obama's Rice Writes CYA Memos To File?

-
A hallmark of bureaucracy is the CYA Memo to File; They come right after the Memorandums of Understanding.
-
The latest Obama-Team CYA memo-Email to be ‘declassified from Top Secret down to junk-mail’ is Susan Rice’s letter written to ‘File’ on Trump’s Inauguration Day – Really?  Weren’t they all supposed to be on the way over to the Capital?
What was so onerous that it required ‘bureaucratic burial’, for the Team, at that critical time?

Barack Obama: The creeper hanging around the arson fires
Obama shows an unseemly obsession with the case of Michael Flynn
“from the earliest days, President Barack Obama has shown a curious — and unseemly — obsession with the case of Gen. Michael Flynn. The whole saga began six years ago when Mr. Obama fired the retired three-star general from his post as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency.
Ordinarily, such a firing would seem like the routine prerogative of a civilian commander-in-chief. But after all we have witnessed and learned about the Obama administration over the four years, Gen. Flynn’s firing raises a host of troubling new questions.”
“Who, after all, would have ever predicted that an outgoing president would launch a sprawling espionage campaign to spy against a political enemy running for the presidency? At the spear-point of that fraudulent, dishonest and undemocratic operation was Michael Flynn.”

PravdaMedia Northam LoveFest

-
Watching VaDGov Northam’s meetings on Covid-19 is like watching a 1960s Woodstock LoveIn with his PravdaMedia.
‘Narry a discouraging Word and the sky's are not cloudy all day'
Totally consistent with the NYDGov Cuomo’s LoveIns (the epicenter of Covid-19) 
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2020/05/who-disregards-american-lives.html 
And what a Major Contrast to the Trump TagTeam WWE  FreeStyle Wrestling chaos -- they're all so fair and balanced!
-
Let’s just be Northam’s lambs and cower-down and ignore the major health management issues in Virgnia during this pandemic crisis.

Criticism mounts as Virginia includes 15,000 antibody results in COVID-19 testing data
Gov. Ralph Northam, a physician, said Thursday via Twitter that he had not been aware until recently that the two types of tests were being combined.
-
-
Study: Virginia one of the worst states in US for COVID-19 testing
According to the foundation’s data, Virginia ranks 49th in the United States for tests administered per 1,000 people and ranks 14th in the share of tests positive for COVID-19.
That essentially means Virginia is near the top in the nation for positive cases per capita but near the bottom for tests administered per capita.
-
-
60% of Virginia's COVID-19 deaths came from long-term care
On April 10, Gov. Ralph Northam announced he had assembled a task force to protect frail, elderly Virginians after 32 of them had died while in long-term care and a Richmond-area home was in the grips of one of the nation’s deadliest outbreaks.
(And the Task Force reports and actions ARE?)

-
Northam's Virginia Nursing Home Geronticide
What did Virginia Gov. Northam, a doctor by trade, do to fix the 77% of Virginia’s nursing homes that failed required health practices before the Covid-19 attacked?
“Over the past three years, government health inspectors cited about 77% of the state’s nursing homes for failing to meet infection prevention and control regulations — and many have been repeat offenders, according to a Virginian-Pilot analysis of federal inspection data.”

5-20-2020:  Virginia sees 763 new coronavirus cases, now reporting 32,908 statewide

PravdaMedia FakeNews Frenzy Over Trump Hydrox

-
Trump says he's taking hydroxychloroquine to help stave off COVID-19
President Trump revealed Monday he has been taking a malaria drug that he once spotlighted as a promising treatment for the coronavirus despite the lack of clinical proof.
Mr. Trump said hydroxychloroquine has been around for decades and he’s “heard a lot of good stories” from COVID-19 patients.
-
-
The PravdaMedia have gone totally postal over Trump’s revelation that he is taking hydroxychloroquine to help ward off Covid-19.
This a continuation of their distress back in April when Trump suggested the widely used drug be considered for Covid-19 patients.
The PravdaMedia FakeNews included ‘fakenews revelations’ that the VA had declared the drug to be a problem and were Not using it.
-
At a White House meeting the VA Administrator directly addressed the FakeNews by stating that the VA administers 42,000 doses of the drug daily for a number of illnesses with No significant negative issues!
-
-
-
-
Trump Practicing Medicine Without A License – Really?
The PravdaMedia has come unstrung over Trump’s open support for two current Malaria drugs for Covid-19.
Trump accepts the premise that the two drugs have been used successfully for Malaria but Not yet approved by FDA for Covid-19, albeit they are in trial tests in many locations including 1,000+ patients in NYC.
Anecdotally there has been significant benefit to these drugs with minimal negative impacts.
If I were ill I would ask my Dr to give me these drugs!

Light At End Of Covid-19 Tunnel – Or -- Another Train?

Reality: there is Not a Fix for Every Problem!
Genetic Change in Viruses
Viruses are continuously changing as a result of genetic selection. They undergo subtle genetic changes through mutation and major genetic changes through recombination. Mutation occurs when an error is incorporated in the viral genome. Recombination occurs when coinfecting viruses exchange genetic information, creating a novel virus.

Two others, Pfizer and Inovio, are also in the United States, one is at the University of Oxford in Britain, and four are in China.”

The Fallacy Of Proposing Another WPA

-
The Works Progress Administration (WPA; renamed in 1939 as the Work Projects Administration) was an American New Deal agency, employing millions of job-seekers (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects, including the construction of public buildings and roads.

Ah Yes!  Another shot at Obama’s “shovel ready jobs” that Not only were Not Ready but were unable to be generated!
-
We can’t even build a pipeline that’s 80% complete!
Have these proponents never hear of ‘government regulations’ and Obama-Judges?
-
Let’ build another WPA Blue Ridge Parkway down the Appalachians’!
Let’s clear-cut a 500-foot wide road-bed cutting through hundreds of streams and springs and impacting the ‘view shed’ for hundreds of miles and then let’s black-top it!
-
While doing that let’s build a major Green Energy Project; another WPA Grand Coulee Dam and impound 125-sq-miles of area.
-
Obama’s so called Shovel-Ready projects could Not happen because we have built a web of constraint over all development projects!
We can Not build major roads, railways, airports or sea ports again.
We have condemned ourselves to a deteriorating existing infrastructure system.
Pogo:  We have met the enemy, and he is us!
-
Compare Hiroshima to Detroit for a reality check of our sad development situation:
-
So just sit-back and relax and collect your unemployment and stimulus checks because we are never again going to have an FDR WPA.
If somehow we did a pseudo WPA; we would rely on immigrant labor to do the hard physical labor as we are now doing for our food supply.

Congressman Riggleman Minces Pelosi’s $3-TRILLION Pork Bill

Va.5thR Congressman Riggleman Minces Pelosi’s $3-TRILLION Pork Bill

Supposedly there’s a shortage of pork products because of the Corona-19 impact on meat processing plants.
So, Pelosi is making-up for the shortage with a massive $3-TRILLION Pork Bill labeled as a solution to our Covid-19 impacts to the US people and economy. The Bill is packed with nonessential Left-Wing Socialist tripe and doesn't include support for essential entities for helping jobs and recovery.
It also doesn't address what is working and not working from the first three massive deficit Bills.
