PSA: Be careful!

(Does anyone know what “not bfr” might mean?)

COVID-19: The goal is to have a vaccine available by January 2021 [35:42] – On Friday, President Trump announced Operation Warp Speed, a public-private partnership to develop and produce a COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the year if possible.

He put two “can-do” people in charge of the process – Glaxo Smith Kline’s vaccine expert Mancef Slaoui to oversee vaccine development and Army General Gus Perna to oversee logistics. They started with about 100 possibles which have been winnowed down to 14 of the most promising.

Trump also took the power to slow-walk vaccines out of the hands of Dr. Anthony Fauci.

During the presser, Fauci was standing close to the podium, but as the praise of the individuals and organizations flowed, he was never mentioned. At all. Urp.

COVID-19: On Tuesday, Dr. Anthony Fauci testified before the Senate Health Committee. Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said the public health response to the pandemic has been riddled with “wrong prediction after wrong prediction” and that Fauci should not be the one making decisions on issues outside his purview.

Dr. Fauci said, “I have never made myself out to be the end all. I’m a scientist, a physician and a public health official, I give advice, according to the best scientific evidence.”

CONGRESS: Nancy’s 1,815-page monstrosity of a pipe dream legislation that she euphemistically titled, “Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act” or the “HEROES Act.”

They make up such nice names for their evil bills, don’t they? It’s almost like they think we have forgotten that the “Affordable Care Act” made health insurance much more expensive.

So let’s do the smart thing and PUT a NOT in front of this to find out what’s really in the bill.

  1. It is NOT about health.
  2. It is NOT about economic recovery.
  3. It is NOT about solutions.
  4. It is NOT about HEROES.

It IS about legalizing mail-in voting so Democrats can cheat their way into power.

It IS about forcing pro-life Americans to pay for abortion

Sheesh. Even 14 Democrats bucked Nancy’s bullwhip and voted against the damn thing!

CHINA: A May 12-14 survey of adults showed about 40% of Americans refuse to buy products made in China, while 78% percent said they’d be willing to pay more for products if the company that made them moved manufacturing out of China.

FLYNN: Judge J says Judge Sullivan’s latest move is nothing more than an effort to poison the 2020 voting electorate. [6:37] – Shipwrecked Crew at Red State writes, “Judge Sullivan screwed up the factual basis of the guilty plea entered by Gen. Flynn, and the procedure he employed was unsound and violated Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. 

I think DOJ knows this to be the case, but given Judge Sullivan’s unpredictability they have opted to not “call him out” on it at this point.  Instead, I suspect there is a hope that he may recognize his error — it’s right there in the transcript — and will instead grant the DOJ motion which solves his problem without him having to confront — or be confronted on — his own astonishing error.”

The Red State article is no doubt well worth reading by anyone who knows enough about the law to follow it. This does not include me, so I won’t try to paraphrase for you.

The Breitbart article is about the SCOTUS ruling that Judge Jeanine mentions.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD: Monica Cline used to work as a Title X training manager and volunteer sexual educator for Planned Parenthood.

She now speaks out against the organization’s teachings, because she realized how harmful it is to young people to encourage cheap sex rather than teach them to value their bodies and the institution of marriage.
