Trump is clueless

The news is out: [The president’s sweeping pronouncement Friday that states must treat all churches and other houses of worship as essential under coronavirus lockdown orders “right now” was met with a now familiar chorus of reaction from critics and legal commentators that he has no authority to issue such a directive.
“The president doesn’t have that power,” said Rachel Laser of Americans United for Separation of Church and State. “The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution forbids the federal government from strong arming the states. These are reckless exaggerations that are obviously aimed at pandering to his base.”
Some dismissed Trump’s rhetoric as election-year bluster not tethered to reality.]

What a moron! Trump is so stupid that he cannot figure a way to hire someone to help him understand a few basic things; like how to do his job.

Hydroxy fool

The news is out: [Reuters. We just got even more evidence that the antimalarial medications touted by President Donald Trump aren’t a good bet for treating the coronavirus.
A massive new study found that the treatments didn’t appear to help patients hospitalized with the novel coronavirus and instead were associated with heart complications and an increased risk of death.
A clinical trial taking place in Brazil was halted in April after a spike in deaths among patients who had received the drug.]

What I find extremely funny is, every moronic move by Trump is matched by an equally moronic move by people who ought to know better. It’s quite clear that Trump never took the pills; however, he looks like he has been shoving UV lights up his butt.

A pastor sees the light

The news is out: [A Philadelphia pastor has warned his congregation that President Donald Trump’s order for churches to be allowed to reopen immediately is “political pandering” and science still suggests it’s not safe to gather in large crowds.
Trump on Friday pushed for the reopening of churches across America that have been closed amid the pandemic to stop people gathering and worsening the coronavirus outbreak. “Allow these very important, essential places of faith to open right now for this weekend. If they don’t do it, I will override the governors,” the president said at the White House. “In America we need more prayer, not less.”
Senior pastor Alyn Waller, of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church, home to one of the city’s largest African American congregations, told his 31,000 Facebook followers in a video on Saturday that Trump’s move is “political pandering to the right, extreme right wing, to make a point for their votes.”
The pastor also informed his congregation that he will continue to hold services through Zoom and Facebook Live until health authorities deem it safe to gather in large groups. “The truth of the matter is the science still suggests that it is not safe to gather in large crowds,” Waller said.]

I am shocked.

Not on my watch

The news is out: [President Donald Trump has issued a call for schools forced to close amid the coronavirus pandemic to be “opened ASAP,” as new polling suggests that Americans do not believe it is safe yet to send children back to school.
Trump shared the sentiment in a tweet on Sunday night, writing: “Schools in our country should be opened ASAP.”
“Much very good information now available,” the president said, tagging British political adviser and commentator Steve Hilton and Fox News in his tweet.
The president’s demand for schools to open appeared to be inspired by comments Hilton made on a Fox News panel about whether it was safe for schools to reopen.]

Trump doesn’t make decisions for my house. Enough black men have been murdered; enough black women have been raped; enough black children have been slaughtered on the altar of white supremacy.

Biblical stupidity 2403

There are 7427 blatant absurdities in the bible. The infallible book from a perfect God has many “what the F?” moments.

Ahaziah began to reign in the twelfth year of Joram

2 Kings 8:25 In the twelfth year of Joram the son of Ahab king of Israel did Ahaziah the son of Jehoram king of Judah begin to reign.

Ahaziah began to reign in the eleventh year of Joram

2 Kings 9:29 And in the eleventh year of Joram the son of Ahab began Ahaziah to reign over Judah.

The reward of valor

The news is out: [A top Senate Democrat on Friday accused the Trump administration of treating military veterans as “guinea pigs,” after the Department of Veterans Affairs disclosed treating 1,300 coronavirus patients with hydroxychloroquine – a drug widely being used in clinical trials and touted by President Donald Trump, but that hasn’t yet been shown to be effective.
“In the vast majority of cases at VA, we are prescribing hydroxychloroquine at the final stages of a Veterans’ life in the hope that it has some positive effect,” Wilkie said in a letter responding to allegations made by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. “It is being provided when requested by the family as a final treatment option when all other treatments have failed.”
The FDA, though, also has warned patients not to use the drug outside a clinical setting or hospital because it can cause serious heart problems in some patients.

That’s what Veterans get for serving, not the country, but the interest of the few who didn’t serve.

Business as usual

The news is out: [WASHINGTON — Alarmed over what they call “potential abuses,” a pair of congressional committees are demanding extensive documents from the State Department about a series of extravagant, government-funded dinners hosted by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and revealed by an NBC News investigation this week.]

A lot of hot air about something normal in everyday political life in the US. Nothing will be done about any abuse; the taxpayers are suckers who are asking for it.
