Irrational and Political – Arizona Returns to Shut-Down Status – Bars, Nightclubs, Resorts, Pools and Recreational Activity Closed By Comrade Governor Doug Ducey…

A weak and pathetic Arizona Governor, Comrade Doug Ducey, is irrationally responding to an increase in positive COVID-19 tests by shutting down most of the state’s recreation activities.  The state’s common sense leadership structure has collapsed under media pressure to comply with politically motivated demands.  Irrational fear now rules.

For three straight months the media took their talking points from political activists who were coordinating a national panic.  The drumbeat was testing, testing, testing… all narrative engineering efforts were specifically structured around testing.

By taking this approach those who were weaponizing fear knew that any increased test rate would be fuel to demand extended lock-downs.  They need this process to continue through the November 2020 election cycle; testing provides fuel for that narrative.

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona’s governor ordered bars, nightclubs and water parks to close again for at least a month starting Monday night — a dramatic about-face as coronavirus cases surge in the Sunbelt.

Republican Gov. Doug Ducey also ordered public schools to delay the start of the classes at least until Aug. 17. Many districts planned to start the school year in late July or early August. His orders can be extended.

“We can’t be under any illusion that this virus is going to go away on its own,” Ducey said.

Arizona emerged from stay-at-home order in mid-May, but infections have since begun spiking. On Sunday, it reported 3,858 more confirmed coronavirus cases, the most in a single day for the state and the seventh time in recent days that the daily toll surpassed the 3,000 mark. (read more)

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot easily achieve ‘mail-in’ voting; which they desperately need in key battleground states in order to control the outcome.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot shut down rallies and political campaigning efforts of President Trump; which they desperate need to do in key battleground states.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot block the campaign contrast between an energetic President Trump and a physically tenuous, mentally compromised, challenger.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats do not have an excuse for cancelling the DNC convention in Milwaukee; thereby blocking Team Bernie Sanders from visible opposition while protecting candidate gibberish from himself.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats do not have a mechanism to keep voters isolated from each-other; limiting communication and national debate adverse to their interests.  COVID-19 panic pushes the national conversation into the digital space where Big Tech controls every element of the conversation.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot keep their Blue state economies easily shut-down and continue to block U.S. economic growth.  All thriving economies are against the political interests of Democrats.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot easily keep club candidate Joe Biden sealed in the basement; where the electorate is not exposed to visible signs of his dementia.

♦Without COVID-19 panic it becomes more difficult for Big Tech to censor voices that would outline the fraud and scheme.  With COVID-19 panic they have a better method and an excuse.

♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot advance, influence, or organize their preferred presidential debate format, a ‘virtual presidential debate’ series.

[Comrade Gretchen Whitmer knows this plan, hence she cancelled the Michigan venue]

All of these, and more, strategic outcomes are based on the manufactured weaponization of the COVID-19 virus to achieve a larger political objective.  There is ZERO benefit to anyone other than Democrats for the overwhelming hype surrounding COVID-19.

It is not coincidental that all corporate media are all-in to facilitate the demanded fear that Democrats need in order to achieve their objectives.  Thus there is an alignment of all big government institutions and multinationals to support the same.

Nothing is coincidental. Everything is political.

        At this time there is no way to escape the insanity by moving to another state. So many patriots left Washington State for Arizona because they believed they could vote for their freedom there. Once taxpayer funded universities are controlled by Marxists, the state government will eventually follow. Anyone planning to move should check out these universities and not make a move based on recent voting trends.

    Since a workable vaccine anytime soon is unlikely, we’ll probably need 60-75% of the population to get infected to achieve herd immunity. Catching it in the summer when the viral load is weaker (virus deactivated by sunshine) and when immune systems are stronger (due to vitamin D, fresher foods, etc.) would probably mean fewer fatalities in the long run. A case can be made that now is the time to let the virus run. Not any easy case for any politician to make. The reason NYC is better off now is that they were worse off earlier, and the percentage of their population that is now immune is significant.

            North Carolina has only just now gotten around to mass testing in our prisons (how convenient in timing right?). My husband works at one of the prisons and besides a test here or there, they’d done no mass testing where he’s at although it’s an intake prison.

            Yesterday he had to be there early to escort/guard a huge group of nurses as they, for the first time since this whole mess started, tested the entirety of general population. IMHO, it appears as if Old Mr. Cooper is attempting to ramp up those positive test numbers as much as possible by any means necessary.

      As an Arizonan, lifelong native, I am not surprised. The Arizona Republicon party is just like the NY State, or Cal or really any other State Republicon party.

      After all, the State that produced Goldwater, many years ago, was in more recent times represented in the Senate by McStain and Flake.

      Look at it this way, as a political party, it is an organisation; how can you expect the National party to be Rino Republicons out to get PDJT, and yet believe the local State “Chapters” of the same organisation would have a different agenda?

      In 2018, Az had a chance; Flake, a major Rino and traitor, wasn’t running for reelection, cause he knew he would lose.
      And McStain went to his well deserved ,….resting place.
      We COULD have sent MAGA Candidates to the Senate, but of coarse Mitch doesn’t WANT MAGA Senators, so they brought Sheriff Joe out of retirement, to split the MAGA vote, enabling Rino McSally to win the primary.
      Then she ran against kursin synema, and lost due to ballots counted after the election, and Ducey then appointed her to fill McStains seat, after he got too much flak about appointing Cindy McCain.

      Point being, its time to #walkaway from the RepubliCON party, and start the MAGA party. As our magnificent warrior leader, I will of coarse vote for PDJT.
      But a vote for 95% of these Republicons, like Ducey and McSally, is a vote for the enemy of PDJT and MAGA, and me.

      I just won’t do it.

      Andy Biggs is pretty good, but I don’t live in his district. My local RNC person began singing the praises of Lindsey Graham, and his Kavanaugh speech.

      I gave him an earful on the great Lindsey, and haven’t heard from him, since.

          Me, too ms doodlebug. I sincerely WISH we could save the RepubliCAN party, with its history and heritage.

          I simply no longer believe that is practical or doable.

          After Perot, the Uniparty worked hard, to make it extreamly difficult to start, from scratch, a National 3rd party, and get on the ballot in all 50 States.

          And, IMHO they infiltrated and corrupted the existing 3 rd parties that had already achieved that goal (Libertarian and Green).

          However, I do believe PDJT represents a unique opportunity. IF he were to break with the Republicon party, clearly call them out for their duplicity and ‘walkaway’ starting his own MAGA party, giving his reccomendation to MAGA candidates primarying Rino’s, I believe most of his supporters would follow him.

          Unfortunately, I don’t expect that to happen, at this late stage in the election.

          Maybe, AFTER the election he will find some way to clean up the Republicon party, and redeem it as the RepubliCAN party….

          To my thinking, unless we deal with the Republicon face of the Uniparty, we can not drain the swamp, or reestablish our Republic.

    I’m in Arizona. In Phoenix. When Ducey opened the state on May 15th we were just fine until June 1st. When the protests hit and the bars opened the kids went crazy from being locked in for a month. Here, the average age of a covid19 positive person went from 62 to 31 years old in 1 week. All the out patient surgery were stopped a week ago. Ducey made it clear that the mayors were responsible for whether wearing a mask would be mandatory. For that libertarian position he was hounded daily by each channels news division and the states radio stations. Phoenix mayor and city council immediately voted to enforce a $250 fine for not wearing a mask as soon as you walked out the house. Scottsdale bars were packed this last weekend and Ducey took away their licenses. Forever. If millennial child adults can’t behave then yes the heavy hand of government will hurt us all. But then again that’s their ASU inspired plan.

      He said that in his area the spike in covid was mainly among hispanic males ages around 19 to 34.

      Many of them are coming across to work the harvest in the fields and are sick before they get here.

      They become sicker and show up for care in our medical facilities.

      No one in charge down there will admit this but the positive cases who are flooding the hospital and over running the health care system in the Yuma area are all most all illegals coming across the border from Mexico.

I think only symptomatic people should be tested and hospitalizations (real ones, isolated to “Covid-19” only not the in for a heart attack and oh, you have tested positive for Covid so therefore your a Covid admission) along with deaths (again real death counts) should determine if we’re in crisis mode or not.

      I work in immunohistochemistry (IHC), where we test for all kinds of pathogens. The coronavirus family has thousands of variations. “Corona” just refers to the shape of the virus capsid, and it’s a common shape. You can’t isolate Kung Flu without an RNA ISH probe developed specifically for that virus. The problem we’ve run into lately is that even the probe vendors are lying to us, marketing probes as being for covid-19 when in fact they are for other SARS variants from years past. The more common IHC tests sold as covid-19 tests are actually for proteins that are too general to be applied with certainty to covid-19, so that’s not really an option if you need to be sure it’s covid. Again, you can’t tell if your target virus is covid without a specific RNA ISH probe, and those are hard to get and expensive right now. It’s not something you can test millions of people for at roadside stands.

      And there won’t be any vaccines. You can’t tell your immune system to attack a particular string of RNA because first, that’s not how immunity works. Leukocyte behavior is based on cell surface receptors, not on nucleic acids. Secondly, if you try to force the issue and associate a particular signal with a particular RNA virus, you will end up turning your immune cells against your own cells because they also produce plenty of RNA strings as a normal part of life. Thus you end up creating an autoimmune disorder which will kill many thousands more than the virus ever did.

      And really, where are these spikes in the numbers coming from? Who’s getting tested? Did you go? Did anyone you know go? Every time I see a testing site, it’s empty or nearly empty. So where are the numbers coming from?

    A young friend recently got the virus along with 8 others in a group of 18 here in AZ. A 50% infection rate among that group. His room mate didnt get it and of the 9 infected only 2 had symptoms. Both described it as a strong flu-like reaction, but no treatment or hospital visit.
    His, the groups awareness of COVID, and the availability of testing caused them to get tested. The fact AZ’s and other rates are climbing is most likely due to the awareness and availability of testing. Even a couple months ago, the young men would not have even thought of being test. 7 or the 9 were totally asymptomatic so they wouldnt have even known to check.
    Precautions for those who are vulnerable is rationale. Shutting down the state and nation for what could be is another issue.

    This is ridiculous. The shut down was supposed to lower the curve. The elderly have suffered the most. Tragically with deaths, but also locked down for months on end. Many haven’t left their rooms in care facilities for four months.

    I’m in a high risk population. We have dramatically cut down our interactions. We’ve done takeout once since February. No haircuts since then either. I’ve been to the grocery store and that’s it. I choose a time of day that I know is light and use self checkout. My spouse is still working, but is able to do remote and social distance.

    If the State had opened up more quickly, with gradual steps, there would have been more cases and by now more dead ends for the virus. Those that got it would have been out and about more, willing to take more risks. I wouldn’t be looking at months more of this. I’m OK because I’m a bit of a introvert. Those of my at risk friends who are extroverts are suffering, they are making excuses to go out and do things. They treat masks as talisman. They handled it for a month, but then started traveling for haircuts, manicures and to go random shopping. Those are the ones I worry about getting it.

    Masks aren’t perfect, if they were why do a 100,000 Americans die each year from medical care acquired infections? That’s not even counting the 100s of thousands who didn’t die but got very sick.

          In addition to Wolf’s term limited position, and the voting action of both Chambers of the PA Legislature to end the Wolf’s Lockdown, 23 House members signed on to bring 5 Articles of Impeachment against Wolf. Not much news about this latter matter out there in the drive-by media, but it hasn’t gone away.

          We are waiting this week for a ruling from the PA Supreme Court on who wins the Lockdown Showdown: the lone Wolf, or the State Legislature.

    Retired Magistrate here: In response to DonMcAro: We did shut most of the country down for several months. Most states put their residents under house resident for just being alive. Of course many big businesses were essential; small businesses were not.

    Shutting the country down was never meant to eradicate the virus, just make it so hospitals were not overwhelmed. Well, hospitals were not overwhelmed. In fact, some hospitals have closed and probably will not re open because they depended on out patient surgeries, which were not allowed, then they were, and now in some states, they have cancelled these “elective” surgeries again.

    The bottom line is that this virus is going to be with us for the foreseeable future. I seriously doubt big pharma comes up with a vaccine anytime soon, or ever. Even if big pharma does, I certainly don’t want to take a chance on taking any vaccine they have rushed to market. The best thing to do is wash your hands, don’t touch your face without washing your hands, get outside and live your life.

WHO has partnered with the CCP to lie and cover up the truth. China has destroyed the wuhan lab evidence. Fauci gave millions to the wuhan lab. Gates and China are telling us they have just the cure, for thousands of dollars a dose. Dem Governors are trying to keep their States locked down and the media is trying to keep everyone in fear.

    I’ve posted this before and I am really praying that more people understand what’s really going on….SD really needs to do an expose on this issue…so, you couldn’t find any mention of C19 in the news for two weeks, and now they are suddenly warning of a second wave due to numerous new positive cases…they will try to lock us down again, to cancel our lives…at the very least, they want to make masks and social distancing our “new normal”…FOREVER

    Here are the facts:

    The PCR test currently in use is unreliable and essentially worthless..it MIGHT show a few tiny fragments of what may possibly be a novel virus, but it shows NOTHING that directly points to C19 illness in the person being being tested…in other words, the PCR test does not show causation..and think about this..if the test was able to detect the amount of C19 viral load in the blood, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to have millions of asymptomatic cases…yet millions of people supposedly have C19 but NEVER get sick….but that’s the point, the PCR test CANNOT detect free, infectious viruses… it cannot determine the amount of virus circulating in blood….it can only detect proteins that are believed, in some cases wrongly, to be unique to C19…put another way, the test can detect genetic sequences of viruses, but NOT the viruses themselves….that is a very important distinction…

    Here’s another thing….there have been documented reports of patients who had a positive test, followed by a negative test, followed by a positive test in a very short span of time…some have had this happen several times…if a positive test truly means that one is infected, then how would these conflicting test results even be impossible…so the test is NOT reliable….you cannot test positive for the virus, and then rid yourself of the virus, and then be re-infected the next day…meaning, a negative test does not necessarily mean a person is NOT infected….conversely, a positive test does not necessarily mean a person IS infected..essentially, the test is completely unreliable..which makes it worthless

    The C19 panic is irrational, something the media and our politicians forced on us, based on primarily an unproven
    RNA test, one that has never proven causation…this is one of the biggest scandals in world history….the virus was never even properly isolated and purified using sound epidemiological methods….remember folks, the test is not picking up active C19 infection in people…it never was….this is why you have millions of asymptomatic cases..

    Everything they are telling us is a lie…EVERYTHING……here is a report that explains it all in great detail…

      That paper is fascinating. Discusses many things that I have observed, much of what I have suspected and also describes something which I did not know.

      I had assumed that the “Covid-19” virus, in particular, had been identified, isolated, whatever.

      Well, apparently, it hasnt. The term “isolated” as it pertains to epidemiology has been neutered and the term “purified” is more appropriate. But it seems “COVID-19” hasnt even been purified. All these tests are meaningless.

      I agree with you that sundance really needs to do an expose on this. And I agree with you that this is one of the biggest scandals in world history. I had been 90% convinced it was a hoax from the beginning, then wavered on “Well, it exists, but its just being weaponized for political purposes.” Now, Im again questioning if it even exists, and hasnt been completely fabricated out of thin air, with meaningless numbers, from some strain of a flu virus, and am now approaching 100%.

      Knowing what lengths America’s and Trump’s enemies will go to to beat him (and thus save themselves), who would doubt they would use a pandemic?

      But here is the thing, if the pandemic succeeded in ousting Trump, then THEY would be left to deal with the pandemic. So whats better than a pandemic? A fake one. And when you own the entire world media, the WHO, etc….its not hard to fabricate one.

    Sundance is right. Nothing is coincidental. All is political. For instance, Texas Department of State Health Sevices with the approval of the CDC has implemented a new definition for Covid 19 probable cases as of May 2020. And these are being counted as Covid 19 cases.

    Old Covid 19 case definition: one Covid 19 case = one Covid 19 case verified by one diagnostic test.

    New Covid 19 case definition: one Covid 19 case = 17 probable Covid 19 cases which are all counted as Covid 19 cases. These can be counted by a combination of 15 possible options (some don’t involve any testing) which can determine a probable case. Yep. You got that right. One case = 17 probable cases. And if you come in contact with any of those 17 probable cases, they can be counted 17 more probable cases. And so on and so forth.

    For Covid 19 death case, old definition of a Covid 19 death: one Covid 19 death verified by one diagnostic positive Covid 19 test.

    NEW definition of Covid 19 death case: if the patient has a positive Covid 19 test or if the doctor writes down the cause of the patient’s death could have been accelerated or complicated by Covid 19, without any verification or positive diagnosis of Covid 19 prior to or after the patient’s death. No diagnostic test for Covid 19 verification necessary.

    This is for real. They are cooking the books, folks.

    Video of the Texas Department of State Health Services presenter that explains Texas’ new Covid 19 case definition starts at 15:00 minutes of the Collin County (near Dallas) monthly meeting…

    This is why, IMHO, that Texas is seeing a surge in new Covid 19 deaths/cases. And since this new definition has been approved by the CDC, I think this is happening all over states like Arizona and Florida.

    Waiting for the woof woof scolding and finger pointing to come soon from the angry dwarf.

    Is all this required masking leading up to more “contact tracing” and keeping mask-resistant people like us in home quarantine?

    I read just today about CPS in Calif trying to remove a child from a C-V “positive” parent. Our choices of staying in contact with others through social media are being removed due to draconian censorship. In my state churches have to take names of attendees. Is this the next phase of their war against conservatives?

    There appears to be no way to fight if TPTB say you’ve been exposed so must quarantine based on some rabid contact tracer. They’re shutting us down. It’s all about the election….

    I know this article is about Arizona, but I have a sneaking suspicion that states that are seeing a surge, i.e. Texas, Arizona, Florida et al, are cooking the books on the Covid 19 cases/ deaths. And they are doing this by changing the new case definition as approved by the CDC for Covid 19 cases/ deaths.

    For instance, read what Collin County (near Dallas) Judge Chris Hill says about Texas Department of State Health Services new definition of a Covid 19 cases which Texas just implemented with the blessings of the CDC…

    “According to guidance provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), Texas will soon begin implementing a new definition for COVID-19 cases that has the potential to significantly and artificially increase case totals…”

    …”Prior to this new guidance, Collin County and Texas have been reporting “confirmed” cases based upon laboratory PCR (polymerase chain reaction) tests which detect SARS-CoV-2 RNA in a clinical specimen…”

    …”According to DSHS, Texas will now begin reporting “probable” cases in addition to “confirmed” cases. To qualify as a “probable” COVID-19 case, a person must meet any two of three criteria categories”… (i.e. these results for a Covid 19 case can be determined by using a combination of 15 different options):

    • Clinical Criteria
    • Epidemiologic Linkage Criteria
    • Presumptive Laboratory Evidence Criteria

    “The problem with this new “probable” definition strategy is in the details….” link…
    https://nextdoor.com/agency-post/tx/collin-county/collin-county-commissioners/texas-dshs-issues-new-guidance-for-probable-covid-19-cases-149216342/

    Judge Hill goes on to say…

    “First, the very nature of the “probable” case definition has the potential to cause a spike in the number of cases, many of which will likely be false positives. As businesses, families, and institutions work diligently towards reopening, the artificial increase in COVID-19 cases will undoubtedly increase the anxiety level for many in our community, while leading others to distrust the reports provided by the state health department…”

    …”The new definition will also cause additional people to be subject to quarantine orders, some for such insignificant reasons as (1) residing in Collin County and (2) having shortness of breath. Others who don’t want to risk a false diagnosis of COVID-19 will be tempted to conceal symptoms like headaches, fever, and coughing. None of these help us stop the spread of COVID-19, nor do they strike a prudent balance between public health priorities and individual concerns…”

    …”Second, this new strategy places a counterproductive stress on our public health department resources, as every new “probable” case must be investigated in the same manner as a confirmed case, and contact tracing of “probable” cases will lead to bloated lists of persons under monitoring.”

    All is political.

    First time commenting here long time reader. I’m an ICU nurse in Phoenix and can comment from experience. The first lockdown here was completely unnecessary and political and we were actually sending nurses home as we weren’t busy enough through all of may and the beginning of June. It started picking up and we are now in a “crisis mode” where we can start putting patients in hallways and have unsafe nurse to patient staffing ratios. This time we are unfortunately very busy. I still disagree with the lockdown just thought I could add some information. Also from what I’ve heard the Phoenix st Luke’s which was recently outfitted by the army COE has been recruiting physicians

      So there is a convergence occurring that you have to admit is the crux of the problem.
      1. Hospitals “reopened” so there is a flood of non-Wuhan Virus patients and rescheduled surgeries.
      2. There is now in place a wide open every symptom is Wuhan Virus combined with test kits that give any number of results all called “Cases” that have to be addressed in some manner.
      3. Then there are real Virus infections from any 1 of 100’s that look like Wuhan Virus.

      In democrat party and “expert” parlance, this is a lesson learned. The fist go around claim of hospital overload DID NOT happen, a major publicity oops. You are seeing 1st hand they fixed that issue.

      With the wide open “Case” declaration criteria and test kits giving all sorts of answers, it is hard to counter the Wuhan surge argument with experts and media bleating out the panic message while healthcare staff are too busy to sort out the truth.

      Thank you for your service and my prayers are with you. I wish you were better served by the experts and leadership in charge of supporting your profession.

    So the question for business owners is a simple one. Will you comply? If there was any time to take a stand this is it. The time for complaining on Twitter is over. The time for hoping the Republican Party will come to your rescue and do your fighting for you has come and gone. You shutdown down again and you’re probably done anyways. What do you have to lose? Which side of history do you want to tell your grandkids you were on in the shutdown of ‘20?

    Sundance, I don’t know if you are aware, but Gov Ducey is on the Board of Directors for TGen here in AZ. They are doing testing and working on a vaccine for COVid-19. Ducey went on a “testing blitz” that he outlined in his presentation back when he first locked down.

    Additionally, he ordered that hydroxychloriquine not be used as a preventative method for the vulnerable. And if someone is admitted to the hospital, it can be prescribed but for one time, 14days, and no refills. A letter was sent late May asking Ducey to rescind this order from April, but he did not budge. Supposedly he was worried about drug availability.

    On the AZDHS website, Dr. Cara Crist explained on June 6 that their math was wrong in counting available beds. Now, supposedly, they are doing it right.

    All of this is online.

    I am planning to go to the Phoenix City Council meeting tomorrow. I have tried alerting Rep. Andy Biggs. I am a precinct committee member. I can go protest at the Capitol building too. I sent emails to Ducey. We must stop this now.

    I live in Pima County in SE AZ (Dem controlled) and you could see this coming a mile away. Ducey has folded over and over again to the progressive mayors and the god forsaken media. He folded on the masks and then he pulled this stunt today. I can see the next move will be to close down restaurants and declare everything non-essential. Mark my words, this will happen after the 4th of July. Ducey does not give a shit because he is termed out in 2022 and he can go back and roll in his Cold Stone Creamery $$$! Testing is going up with the death rate going down but they keep pushing the same BS over and over again. If you protest and loot the Scottsdale Mall it is ok to be out but if you need to work out in a gym or or have a drink down town it is a f***ing crime. I am done with this stuff!

    So stupid. Most of Arizona practically closes down during July & August anyway due to the heat & lack of tourists. Not many people want to vacation in blistering 115º heat with Monsoons, Microbursts, & Haboob dust storms. Hotels even give employees one month vacations if taken June – August. Business is slow, with skeleton crews working as employees leave for the cooler locations to vacation until schools resume. This was so unnecessary, which only confirms in my mind there is an ulterior motive. Ducey is toast, he’s getting slammed from both sides.

    For those who live in Arizona, a recall is underway for Doug Ducey. It was launched May 1, 2020 for, I believe, the initial lock-down.

    Use the above link to get to the list of recalls for Arizona. Once there, click on the one marked “Doug Ducey recall, Governor of Arizona (2020)”

    If you live in Arizona and are tired of the political football that is the Corona virus, consider signing the petition and putting pressure on Governor Ducey to stop screwing around with peoples’ livelihoods.

    Arizona’s spike in cases is the result of relentless “testing blitzes” going on in the state coinciding with Ducey’s decision to open up the state May 15. Any increase in hospitalizations is directly attributable border crossers from Mexico using our Arizona hospitals to treat their Covid-19 infections. Daniel Horowitz spells it out at Conservative Review.

    So everywhere Pence goes with Dr Mengele Birx goes into shutdown over fake 2nd wave.

    “ With the crisis unfolding in Sunbelt states, Pence is still traveling to Texas, Arizona and Florida this week to meet with governors and their health care teams, the White House confirmed to The Arizona Republic Saturday.

    Pence’s schedule is still being finalized. Pence said Friday that Dr. Deborah Birx of the White House coronavirus task force would join him in Arizona.”

    Pence is running against Trump. Pence is the final insurance policy. So instead of these states being seen as leading reopening …Pence and Birx show is leaving the impression that Trump acted rashly in praising reopening. Pence is deliberately NOT doing campaign events vuz scamdemic but guess what he is doing. He is holding meetings with Governors and Faith leaders. The 2nd coup detat is on.

    Wait for it–Governor Carney will issue a Stay in the Basement order for all Delaware citizens age 65 and over. That will give Biden cover so that his dementia won’t be so patently obvious during the campaign. The governor may also come up with lockdown plan for internet providers so Old Dementia Joe can’t do interviews via the internet. How great would that be?
    By the way, who’s polling as the top 3 VP choices? If Dementia Joe can’t debate President Trump, the black female who is being demanded as his “successor” should be in the debate. After all, she could be sworn in as early as January 20th if the Democrats are able to Mail-in the votes! After all, the ballots are being printed and marked as we read!!
