So George. correct me if I'm wrong. I assume you support Trump and his requirements that attendees to his rally's do not wear masks or practice social distancing. Do you then support all mass gatherings-sports, concerts, dances etc without social distancing or masks being required.

I am directly affected by this because one of my prime endeavors is concert and event promotion and doing sound ant tech work for festivals and concerts. Us promoters love huge crowds and hoards of dancing sweaty patrons.

From the Black Lives Matter website.

"We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise)." These loons have the streets?

Also George, Trump wants to have the Repub Convention in Florida which is now having a huge surge in infections. Here are the numbers. Is he acting responsibly and in the public best interests in making that decision?

"TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida has again topped its high for new coronavirus cases in a day, reporting another 1,902 on Friday morning. It comes a day after the state set a new one-day high with 1,698 cases Thursday.

It also marks the ninth day out of the past 10 that the state has confirmed over 1,000 new cases as social distancing restrictions loosen.

Friday: 1,902
Thursday: 1,698
Wednesday: 1,371
Tuesday: 1,096
Monday: 966
Sunday: 1,180
Saturday: 1,270
June 5: 1,305
June 4: 1,419

Oh, what to do. Florida and S Carolina see highest dead day yet, and Missouri is opening it up for all businesses next week. Oh course, it’s goes without saying guidelines are strongly recommended and empathized, but no longer mandatory. NFL says there is no way they can meet the requirements put on them to even do workouts and get ready to play.

Interesting that Missouri had a requirement for business folks to wear masks if they could not do the 6’ foot rule and could provide only two feet away from customers to run the shop. Wonder if that is gone?

Orange County, CA drops the mask mandate people revolt (LA Times). Oh, it’s like herding cats.

Bottomline: With Trump due to hold smaller rallies in public venues, he is smoking out Biden to come out of his basement and address crowds, just like he is doing. Cheering throngs vs Grandpa in the basement. When will they roll Biden out? Probably not for awhile. With the well financed Blue Mob, Biden can let the media do his work for him. He can’t be trusted to to the job, so the Apparatus has stepped in.

Looks like Paul Emery and many others like myself as just going to have to ride it out. The bigger music venues will be back, but not right now. Have they allowed live music in Nevada City bars yet? Plays? Musicals? Ain’t talking about some guy at the piano or sitting on a stool playing solo. I mean bands. Productions. Anyone know? Anyway, just ride it out, Paul. You will probably be the last of the bunch to open and get back to normal. Sorry, it’s the nature of the beast. Gives you plenty of time to start planning for next year, maybe Feb.

Of Course COVID-19 Cases Will Rise — Chill Out

“Just watch — as soon as President Donald Trump begins his massive campaign rallies, MSM talkingheads will run to their fainting couches, blasting him for holding these rallies where the virus is certain to be spread. The Leftmedia will predictably charge Trump with aiding if not outright causing a “second wave” of COVID-19. Pundits will blame Trump for literally killing people.

Finally, the message that all Americans should accept is that COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon, but it’s also not a death sentence for the vast majority of Americans. Take precautions, protect the most vulnerable, and ride it out. And maybe the best advice is to just chill out. Handwringing and worrying over this won’t do a thing to stop its spread or create a vaccine. As Andy Dufresne, the main character in the movie “Shawshank Redemption,” states, “I guess it comes down to a simple choice, really: Get busy living or get busy dying.” It’s time to get busy living, America.”

Chris Cuomo Criticizes Trump Economy Using Data That Stops In 2016



https://www.mrctv.org/videos/chris-cuomo-criticizes-trump-economy-using-data-stops-2016

George Rebane

PaulE - I don't support further lockdowns even though we will have succeeding 'waves' of C19 until a reliable vaccine is developed. None has been developed yet for the garden variety flu, and we have succeeding waves of it every fall and winter which cause tens of thousands to die of it. No one has been social distancing, wearing masks, locking down, and turning off the economy for that, at least for a century. Rebane Doctrine calls for the government and healthcare institutions to publish the latest risk data (accounting for demographics, comorbidity, and geography) for C19, flu, ..., and all other contagious diseases, along with what lowers the probability of people getting infected. Then people can decide for themselves where to go and which events to attend. Laws should be passed that you get to sue no one if you catch the bug. Capice?

Paul Emery

Thanks George for the thoughtful response. George you write that " Rebane Doctrine calls for the government and healthcare institutions to publish the latest risk data (accounting for demographics, comorbidity, and geography) for C19, flu and all other contagious diseases, along with what lowers the probability of people getting infected.

Those guidelines concerning C19 have been published by the CDC that encourage the use of face masks. Here's their recommendation:

"A cloth face covering may not protect the wearer, but it may keep the wearer from spreading the virus to others."

Is Trump being responsible as the leader of our country to ignore those recommendations from his own at his rally's and gatherings ?

Paul Emery

In short George shouldn't Trump be setting an example as the elected leader of our country?

Punchy......when’s the last time you got laid?

Don Bessee

Take a radical lawyer mix in some soros money and the PLO and you get -

One of the two lawyers accused of trying to torch an NYPD cruiser during protests that engulfed Brooklyn over the weekend spent a summer in the West Bank as a fellow and intern with radical Palestinian activist organizations.

Two attorneys, Colinford Mattis, 32, and Urooj Rahman, 31, reportedly were caught attempting to distribute homemade molotov cocktail devices to protesters who were clashing with police near the 88th Precinct in Fort .

“Rahman attempted to distribute Molotov cocktails to the witness and others so that those individuals could likewise use the incendiary devices in furtherance of more destruction and violence,” a witness was quoted as saying to authorities in a detention memo from federal prosecutors for the Eastern District of New York.

Rahman was captured in a photo obtained by the New York Daily News wearing a Palestinian keffiyeh on her face and holding a makeshift Molotov cocktail. The keffiyeh, a chequered black and white scarf, has become a symbol of Palestinian nationalism.

Rahman is a graduate from Fordham University law school. In 2014, she did a summer fellowship internship program at the Israel based Mada Al-Carmel’s Arab Center for Applied Social Research in a partnership program with Palestine Works.

The Mada Al-Carmel center is heavily financed by George Soros through his Open Society Foundations.

NGO Monitor lists some of the radical organization’s political advocacy. The center co-authored the “Haifa Declaration” which calls for a “change in the definition of the State of Israel from a Jewish state” and accuses Israel of “exploiting” the Holocaust “at the expense of the Palestinian people.”

The September 2011 edition of Mada al Carmel’s journal Jadal focused on “Boycotting Israel: Between Theory and Practice.”

As part of her Soros-backed fellowship at the Mada Al-Carmel center, Rahman spent a week with the radical Palestine Work organization.

TALLAHASSEE — Florida is sitting on more than 980,000 unused doses of hydroxychloroquine, a drug President Donald Trump touted as a “game changer” in the fight against the coronavirus, after only a handful of hospitals in the state asked for access to the medicine.

Gov. Ron DeSantis said in April that the state was getting 1 million doses of the drug. The announcement was made during a press conference that came across as a commercial for hydroxychloroquine. Held in the Florida Cabinet room, the event featured the video testimonial of a patient who had taken the drug, a question-and-answer session with a doctor who endorsed the treatment, and DeSantis touting the drug by name, even as he referenced other experimental treatments for Covid-19 only vaguely.

John Hickenlooper Slapped with Highest Colorado Ethics Violation Penalty

John Hickenlooper’s sworn testimony that his meeting with Vernon Jordan was not political is directly contradicted by his own public statements. While Hickenlooper has already been cited for multiple ethics violations, Coloradans deserve to know if he also committed perjury by lying to the IEC.

National Republican Senatorial spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez said in a statement on Friday that Coloradans deserve a better representative than someone who violated the state’s ethics rules:
The Ethics Commission’s decision to order John Hickenlooper pay the highest penalty in Commission history is an important step toward accountability.

Hickenlooper violated the Colorado constitution, disrespected the rule of law, and forced the Commission to subpoena him and find him in contempt before answering their questions.

#lackofselfawareness -

While the PSA has good intentions, it’s not exactly going over well on Twitter. The video is in black and white and features the aforementioned celebs staring dramatically at the camera and saying correct but vague things like, “We are no longer bystanders. We will not be idle. Enough is enough,” and, “I will no longer allow an unchecked moment. I will no longer allow racist, hurtful words, jokes, stereotypes—no matter how big or small—to be uttered in my presence.”

People were quick to compare #ITakeResponsibility to the “Imagine” debacle from earlier this year, in which celebs covered the popular John Lennon song in an attempt to lift people’s spirits at the beginning of the coronavirus outbreak. If you blocked that from your memory, here’s a reminder:
“Regret to inform you the celebs are at it again,” tweeted someone in reference to the #ITakeResponsibility PSA. Many of the responses echo this sentiment. “What are they auditioning for,” one person wrote, to which someone responded, “Ending Racism: The Musical.”

A FANTASY WITH A PREDICTABLE ENDING

“Unlike traditional homeless shelters, people who stayed at the hotel were allowed to bring drugs and alcohol on-site.

What could go wrong?

But some residents at the hotel said conditions had begun to spin out of control in recent days, with people injecting heroin and methamphetamine in the hallways, and fights breaking out at night. Volunteers became overwhelmed.

“It started out well, then descended into chaos,” said Jennie Taylor, who had a room on the second floor. “People got the message that this was a place where you could use drugs freely and that attracted the wrong crowd.”

Shockingly. The next day, June 10, a Star Tribune columnist named Jennifer Brooks bemoaned the collapse of the Sheraton homeless shelter:

Once upon a time on Lake Street, there was a sanctuary.

Once upon a time? It lasted for less than a week and ended the day before yesterday. Not exactly Camelot.”

WARSAW (Reuters) - Some members of Poland's government on Friday denied a Reuters report saying talks over a U.S.-Polish defense deal known as Fort Trump were crumbling amid disputes over how to fund the deployment of additional U.S troops and where to garrison them.

"This is fake news," Krzysztof Szczerski, a top aide to the Polish president, told public radio on Friday.

The U.S. ambassador to Poland, Georgette Mosbacher, reacting on Twitter to the report, said negotiations remained on track.

Those mutha mullahs are losing their voices -

Iranian officials are warning that U.S. sanctions pressure may soon force the regime to shut down its international media operations, such as PressTV, Arabic iFilm, and Al-Alam.

Historian Daniel Pipes, a dedicated critic of Islamism and Iran’s theocratic regime, took the news as a “great success” for the Trump administration’s “maximum pressure” campaign:

The Jerusalem Post on Friday confirmed that Iranian officials are talking about losing satellite access for their international programming in a matter of “days and weeks.” PressTV, in particular, would be an embarrassing loss for the regime, as it provides Iran’s primary English-language propaganda network.

The Sydney Morning Herald reported a major setback for PressTV last week when Facebook began labeling it as “state-controlled media,” along with similar operations in Russia and China. Facebook announced it will begin blocking advertising from state media later this summer.

YouTube deleted PressTV’s U.K. channel in January after the Times of London documented how it was spreading “pro-Tehran, anti-Israeli propaganda.” Ironically, that propaganda currently includes loud assertions that U.S. sanctions are hurting America far more than Iran.

Radio Farda noted on Wednesday Iran’s Radio Dari service and Al-Kowsar television network have already been shuttered due to unpaid debts to their satellite providers.

What kind of example is our President setting for not following the recommendations of health officials when it comes to the virus when he's willing to ignore recommendations in Tulsa County Oklahoma that had 79 new cases this week and the Tulsa Health Department that specifically recommended against large indoor gatherings. He plans to go ahead with his rally attracting 17,000. Do you think he's going to recommend face masks and social distancing?

"Health officials in Tulsa, Oklahoma, have urged caution on attending gatherings during the coronavirus pandemic — just over a week before President Donald Trump is set to host a massive indoor campaign rally in the city.

The Tulsa Health Department noted on its website Friday that Tulsa County had reported 71 new cases of the virus that day, its highest daily increase to date. Preliminary investigations linked the rise to indoor gatherings, it said.

Trump’s rally is planned for June 20 at the 19,000-capacity BOK Center.

A waiver on Trump’s 2020 campaign website warns people requesting tickets that “an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present” and they forfeit the right to sue anyone involved in the organization of the event if they catch the virus there.

Tulsa’s health officials did not explicitly refer to Trump’s rally in the statement.

"Dr. Bruce Dart, the department’s executive director, said he has “concerns about large groups of people gathering indoors for prolonged lengths of time.”

A LAST DESPERATE GAMBIT

“The Democratic Party’s coordinated effort to stir up racial hatred and bully the rest of us into giving them back the White House under the guise of “anti-racism” can only be seen as the most recent stage of the Democrats’ attempt to nullify the 2016 election. James Kunstler comments pungently:“...........

“Let’s pause on that thought. It is remarkable that the goal of all the machinations, all the hysteria, is to elect Joe Biden–Joe Biden!–president. In his best days, which are decades behind him, Biden was an incompetent hack. Now, I don’t suppose that any informed person considers him capable of serving as president in any meaningful sense. Hence the interest in his vice-presidential selection process.

Hardly a day goes by without another contribution to the file on Biden’s dementia. Here is one for today:“......

‘Persistent Fragilities’ Ahead For Households And Businesses -Fed Report

https://www.oann.com/persistent-fragilities-ahead-for-households-and-businesses-fed-report/

‘Persistent Fragilities’ sounds like Greenspan speak. Once reopened, there will undoubtedly a surge at restaurants. Pent up demand. But, after that initial spike? I still maintain that during the lock down people are/have cultivating habits, new habits. Some (not all) will continue cooking at home, homeschooling their kids (if parent is available and not working), skipping some drives to town, avoiding crowds, and asking themselves “do we really need to go out tonight?” And it is probable some, in the back of their minds, have developed a phobia of public transit and the night life. Americans eat 50% of their meals away from the home, so that may change a bit. Means a lot if you are running a service sector business on a thin margin.

Who knows what percentage of folks will be comfortable with spending more time at home, more time with the family, and more time eating healthy food made at home? I don’t know, but habits are quickly formed. Do something everyday for 17-19 straight days and it’s a habit.

Meanwhile....Dear Diary
When to the grocery store in GV yesterday. 2nd time since right before the TP panic and the shut down started. First time was a couple of weeks ago and masks were everywhere at the Dent Can Store. Yesterday, I pulled into the parking lot, pulled out my too hot for comfort N-95 mask from between the seats, shook off the dust and dog air, and noticed all the people, even The Elderly, walking in the store without a single mask on. Heck, I took off my mask, shoveled it in my back pocket, and walked right on in and joined the crowd. Pretty crowded, but not packed. I did see about 2-3 customers wearing a mask (all women) out of who knows, maybe a hundred or more. Parking lot was full.

To mask or not to mask is the question....or to unmask or not to unmask is the other question.

Oh Scott, if Punch is one thing, he is a Nervous Nellie. Worry Wart. Freddie Fretter. Hans Handwringer. What if an asteroid hits his abode? . What if his neighbor’s raw land catches on fire and burns his house down? What is they defund the Nevada City Police and people start slapping up ‘Go Back to Berekely You Stink-Asses’ signs all over the Historic District? What if Trump is being played like a toy by Putin? What if T Rex and Putin take over all the oil in Europe and North Africa and own the World? What if there is never a cure for the Kung Flu? What then????

How can we miss him when he won’t go away?

Just to let everyone know we are multi-whatever in Idaho.
https://www.kboi.com/2020/06/12/defund-police-movement-alive-despite-id-leaders-opposition/
Money quote:
But Adrienne Evans, executive director of United Vision for Idaho, says they shouldn’t be so quick to dismiss it. She says the proposal isn’t a call to eliminate police officers, but rather to shift law enforcement funding to other priorities.
“We have an opportunity – with this call for defunding the police – to invest in those priorities,” says Evans. “Housing, essentials that people need, schools – things that keep people safe, instead of arresting them when they don’t have access to those things.”
Uh - "isn’t a call to eliminate police officers,"
Instead, we'll "...shift law enforcement funding to other priorities...".
So - we'll have cops, but they won't be paid?

Why doesn't this apply to national politics?
The left has been howling for the arrest and imprisonment of Republicans for years.
Now, they don't like cops.
I'm sure the usual lefties that post here will explain in full detail.
Wait - I'll go for the popcorn.

Scott O

Defund the police!
OK
No more secret service
No more EPA enforcement
No more FBI
No more Treasury Agents
No more Fish And Game Agents
Uh, no - wait!

MICHAEL MOORE: White Men Feel Their Grip On Power Quickly Fading...


A feeling that I imagine Mike (and a few others who shall go nameless) knows all too well......the sinking feeling that a guy gets when his quick handed nephew grabs the last drumstick at Thanksgiving just before he can wrap his chubby mitts around it.

Thanks Emery for agreeing(through omission) that removing history is OK with you.

So your all "concerned" about a big Trump rally?
Hmmmmm........ Now where was that same "concern" when the astroturf, bused in protesters show up in Grass Valley??
Now weren't you out barking at cars right along with them?

You know Walt we're going to have to back away from interacting with Punch.....there is more going on there than is readily apparent.

If Trump wins in November......he's going to have an aneurysm.

George Rebane

Not to worry about our left wingers. They’ll be back with the next happenings that support their narrative - Trump down in the polls (again), Trump’s next FITM episode, a new bump in C19 cases, ... . I sure wish any of them would talk about their take on the kind of America we’ll have after the Dems dominate the federal govt and their street protestors get their way. Now those would be real issues to consider.

George Rebane

Fish 803am - Michael Moore is almost right. White men do fear their loss of power since most of them believe that their power, and the political power of every other cohort in the nation, derives from the Consitution and its derivative laws that define our country’s social order. To the extent that these are being trashed by the Left, then among others, white men fear their loss of power to preserve the Union.

That may be true but in this case I believe Mike's venom is reserved for those he perceives as "class traitors"....the blue collar white guys that he used to pull for (Roger & Me), the blue collar white guys that got Trump elected.

He knows that white "Big Money" is going come through this just fine. They always do. They'll just extract money from the treasury to pacify the inner cities again. More set asides, more affirmative action, they might even swing reparations this time though the mechanism to compensate the descendants of slavery will be an absolute nightmare. Every Nigerian here for economic improvement will suddenly become a "True Son of the South. Every Ugandan who got here in the 70's will have stories about his ancestors travails while escaping the plantation during the time of the Underground Railroad.

America as we knew it is dead! The only solace I take is that the revolution eats its own. There already starting to see graffiti that says...."Liberals get the bullet too"! Which I suppose is some comfort in difficult times!

FOX News said the man was unarmed in Atlanta. Say what? We saw the taser. Maybe the other cop thought it was a gun. Don't start the hysterical conclusions please. Wait to see the truth. Don't let yourselves be part of the MOB! It appears FOX is no better in their News than the fakers.

L

A taser is a weapon. It can disable the target sufficiently that the bad can take his gun and...Beware of nitwit dims claiming that a taser is some kind of toy weapon and this drunken moron was unarmed. It's how they 'think'.

Mary Wanna

"L" a taser is not a deadly weapon. The guy was asleep. They said he was wasted but he beat down two trained police and took the guys taser. They BS'd with the driver for 25 minutes before trying to cuff him. They could have just let him get something to eat. And sleep it off. He did not look that wobbly during the field sobriety test.

Judging a demonstration by it's most violent participants but NOT judging a police force by it's most violent cops is the language of the oppressor.
