Donald Trump played his first game of golf since the US implemented a lockdown due to coronavirus: EPA


While the nation mourns almost 100,000 dead, the president golfed on Memorial Day weekend.

I need your caption for this pic.

“The nation is fine with you golfing. But why do you insist on coming back from golfing? For all our sakes, remain on the golf course. Forever.”

drumpf threatened Michigan twice unless they did a quid pro quo with him for disaster aid. That us another impeachable offense, along with knowingly accusing Joe Scarborough ( whom I cannot stand) of murdering an intern in his congressional office.

Then we still have the entire wingnuts corruption clique that ignores every one of drumpf's criminal acts and has brought great shame to American shores.

All wingnuts need to be kicked into prison for life.

Hold on a minute there, Killer. The pandemic started in the more liberal east and west coast states because of more immediate exposure from abroad. It is now the inland states' turn. Alabama is over- whelmed and Missouri, Georgia, and Mississippi are in trouble and Tennessee is on the edge.

It has nothing to do with liberalism. The Republican president is responsible for much of the sickness and death. He failed to do one thing to prevent us from dying from the virus.

"Hold on a minute there, Killer. The pandemic started in the more liberal east and west coast states because of more immediate exposure from abroad."

More international visitors AND higher population density.

New York City and Bozeman, Montana, are not remotely equally at risk from COVID-19. Not saying Andrew Cuomo did everything right in protecting his state, because he didn't. But he had a much, much harder job than the governor of Montana.

These are apples-to-oranges comparisons.

And they're also a dishonest blame-shifting exercise to benefit Trump, who was responsible for protecting ALL FIFTY STATES and failed miserably.

"Blah blah blah Trumps Fault!"

Facts are facts. Incompetent Democrat governors told people to hug coughing Asians to prove they're not racist, go to parades, put sick seniors back in nursing homes, and actually sent COVID positive people to quarantine in nursing homes, including a 20 year black guy who used old people as punching bags.

Democrat politicians and their media criticized Trump for overreacting early on and called his travel bans racist. Now their constituents are paying the ultimate price for putting them in charge.

The lesson is clear.

All of the former COVID "hotspots" in the nation sent sick people into nursing homes en masse. No exceptions. COVID excess deaths are a result of a single policy repeated by Democrat state governments and their public health apparatus. A self-induced crisis, due to extreme incompetence and negligence.

dinthebeast said...

Actually, the tri-state area which was responsible for the insanely bad infection and mortality numbers originally has successfully bent the curve downward, and when you subtract their current statistics from those of the US as a whole, the pandemic is still raging out of control. The infection will be slower among the lower population densities, but it is still happening.
Since the incubation time runs from two days to two weeks, look for a massive and grisly result of this weekend's unrestrained behavior in the first two weeks of June, after which it will be much more difficult for the covidiot crowd to deny the severity of the pandemic.
But deny it they will, an act of mass murder that is beginning to compete with the Bush administration's Iraq adventure.

Despite the state’s stay-at-home order, the weekend’s death toll has already surpassed last year’s holiday weekend, when seven people were killed and 34 were injured during the period from 5 p.m. Friday through 5 a.m. Tuesday.

In 2018, seven people died and 30 others were wounded. In 2017, six people were killed and 44 others

Hydroxychloroquine is used to prevent or treat malaria caused by mosquito bites.

To prevent malaria, take this medication by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once a week on the same day each week. Mark a calendar to help you remember. This drug is usually started 1 to 2 weeks before entering the malarious area. Continue to take it weekly while in the area and for 4 to 8 weeks after leaving the area, or as directed by your doctor. To treat malaria, follow your doctor's instructions.

Hydroxychloroquine was approved for medical use in the United States in 1955.[2] It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines, the safest and most effective medicines needed in a health system.[8] In 2017, it was the 128th most commonly prescribed medication in the United States, with more than five million prescriptions.[9][10] The speculative use of hydroxychloroquine for COVID‑19 threatens its availability for people with established indications.[4]

Progressives are Godless:


Two Chicago churches continued to hold services Sunday after city officials fined each of them last week for violating Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s current stay-at-home order by hosting more than 10 people and
later ordered the houses of worship to stop holding gatherings or face more severe penalties.

Dr. Allison Arwady, the commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health, sent letters Saturday to Metro Praise International Church in Belmont Cragin, Elim Romanian Pentecostal Church in Albany Park and Philadelphia Romanian Church in Ravenswood warning that future violations could result in a church being “declared a public health nuisance” and potentially closed.

While all three churches were fined $500 last week for holding services and are now subject to additional penalties, Metro Praise and Elim Romanian remained defiant and welcomed worshippers Sunday. A statement on Philadelphia Romanian’s Facebook page said in-person services had been suspended until May 31, though a choir, band and multiple speakers appeared in an online mass.

Cristian Ionescu, pastor of Elim Romanian, said he worries that the “summary abatement” threatened in Arwady’s letter could lead to his church being demolished “without due process.”

Hydroxychloroquine carries cardiac risks. The people who take it for lupus and other conditions are screened for cardiac conditions to reduce the chances that they will die. But some risk is unavoidable. It is, frankly, a nasty drug, and nobody should want to take it if they can help it.

And the only reason that the risk of taking the drug is justified in those cases is because those people already have a serious health condition that can’t be treated well by means other than hydroxychloroquine. That would never apply to the circumstances of taking hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 preventative. No responsible doctor would recommend taking a drug whose side effects could kill you, as Trump has claimed to (probably another lie), in order to treat an infection you don’t even have yet!

Futhermore, even if you do have COVID and are experiencing dangerous complications, mounting evidence suggests it does not work against the virus. The belief that it did work in the first place were based on a low-quality study in France whose results have not been duplicated by later, better quality studies.

Everything about Trump’s premature touting of this drug was insanely irresponsible.

Just because a drug increases your chances of surviving lupus, that doesn’t mean it won’t decrease your chances of surviving COVID-19.

No one can get hydroxychloriquine without a prescription. One would assume a doctor would know that if there was some sort of underlying condition that precluded a patient from taking it, they would not prescribe it. That's what they do.

It's a completely safe drug that might save lives. But Trump said something about it, so let's pretend it's poison.

One would assume wrong.

While the vast majority of doctors are responsible, unfortunately, there have been an irresponsible minority of GPs who have written unjustified hydroxychloroquine COVID-related prescriptions for themselves, family members, and various and sundry Trump-worshipping patients. (There are also bad doctors who have turned into drug dealers, cashing in on the large number of opioid addicts by selling them recreational Oxycontin. Just saying.)

Accordingly, state governors have had to slap on additional restrictions on new hydroxychloroquine prescriptions. It’s no longer enough to just be a doctor; you have to submit documentation that proves you’re NOT writing them for COVID-19 (except under a very narrow set of trial conditions actually approved by the FDA).

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities now represent 42% of all deaths from the coronavirus, up from 40% earlier this month—and 52% outside of NY state.

By downplaying the reality of which groups are statistically most at risk from COVID-19, the media causes damage both by dramatically overstating true risk to general society and avoiding serious attention to nursing homes that house <2% of US population, where the focus is desperately needed.

The AAMC also studied undergraduate grade-point average (GPA) as a predictor of medical school success. In partnering with 18 medical schools that measured performance of about 1,000 total students, the study, “Using MCAT Data in 2019 Medical Student Selection,” determined that GPA was a slightly less impactful predictor of medical student success than MCAT scores. A more effective indicator of how well a first-year student would fare was to look at both MCAT scores and undergraduate grades.

A study published in Military Medicine indicated that by the time medical students became residents, their MCAT score was far less of a predictor of success than it was early in medical school. Researchers behind the April 2015 study, “Does the MCAT Predict Medical School and PGY-1 Performance?” found that the “MCAT was not able to predict assessments relying on direct clinical observation, nor was it able to predict” program director assessment of performance during residency’s first year.

No:

The White House Plumbers, sometimes simply called the Plumbers, the "Room 16 Project," or more officially, the White House "Special Investigations Unit" was a covert White House Special Investigations Unit, established within a week after the publication of the "Pentagon Papers" in June 1971, during the presidency of Richard Nixon. Its task was to stop and/or respond to the leaking of classified information, such as the Pentagon Papers, to the news media. The work of the unit "tapered-off" after the bungled "Ellsberg break-in" but some of its former operatives branched into illegal activities while still employed at the White House together with managers of the Committee to Re-elect the President, including the Watergate break-in and the ensuing Watergate scandal.[1] The group has been described as Nixon's "fixers".[2]

They should have the same rules applied to them as to any other publisher.

dinthebeast said...

The problem with the news media is the same problem as with healthcare: it doesn't function properly as a for profit business.
Many mistake the purpose of broadcast news as the edification of its audience, when its real purpose is to provide attention getting content to train attentions on the ads for dick pills and reverse mortgages.
The original deal was flawed but functional: broadcast companies get to conduct their profit making business on the public's airwaves, and in return they conformed to community set guidelines for their content and provided public services on the air such as news, weather and emergency alert programming, which were financial drains for the companies, but set as the cost of doing that particular business.
Then Richard Nixon was exposed as a criminal by the media and Roger Ailes had a big idea about saving corrupt Republican officials with corrupt friendly broadcast media, Ronald Reagan took the fairness doctrine out behind the barn and shot it in its head, and Fox News was born, along with Rush Limbaugh and the rest of hate radio, and the formerly public owned airwaves became a toxic stew of lies and propaganda in support of right wing policies that were and remain too unpopular to win elections on their supposed merits.
Along the way, news departments were saddled with the making of their own operating budgets and the free market took over as it will: anything unprofitable like the hiring, training, and work support of actual reporters became operating losses that could only be supported by advertising dollars, thus corrupting the entire system even further than the already toxic right wing propaganda broadcasting.
This all makes getting factual information more complicated than it needs to be, and warps the political process which depends upon an informed electorate to function properly.
So it turns out that there are things that are not facilitated by the reliance upon commerce, and in fact are rendered worse that useless by it.

They aren’t a publisher. Twitter aren’t sourcing any of the content. The users of the platform are.

But they are a community, with community standards that you have to abide by if you want to post on their platform. Lying and defaming and hate speech violate those standards.

Honestly, flagrant violators like Trump should have been banned long ago. Tacking on disclaimers about dishonesty is way too lenient in his case. There is no First Amendment right to have telecommunications networks help you spew bullshit far and wide.

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat are not platforms. They are modern publishing mechanisms. They want to be seen as platforms for the sole purpose of avoiding legal constraint, which costs money to work around and requires more responsibility than these companies want to be burdened with.

They are publishers. It is time we stopped giving them a free ride as bogus "platforms" as if they have no control and cannot be held responsible for what their users post. Every so often, Facebook or Twitter banishes someone or removes some pages or tweets, and we see them doing their job of editing the work to be published so it meets community and legal standards. Just like a newspaper, magazine, or any publisher is supposed to do.

A publication is legally liable if it prints libels or other forms of unprotected speech (a small category in America). A platform is not; only the individual posting to the platform is.

In the 1990s, Congress passed the Communications Decency Act, in part to allow Internet services such as Promenade and Prodigy (RIP) to block pornography. The idea was that open Internet platforms where smut prevailed seemed to enjoy more protection in law than those entrepreneurial outfits that wanted to create family-friendly zones. The latter, because they edited and moderated content that users posted for obscenity, were at that time treated in the law as publishers and then were suddenly liable for whatever libels and slanders users posted on them. It was a more conservative America, and Congress thought the result of this was perverse.

Most of the parts of that law that tried to directly combat the spread of pornography were struck down by the courts. But section 230 of the law, which allows proprietors of websites and forums to set standards — to edit and moderate their content without becoming a publisher of them — is now the legal remit under which social-media giants shadow-ban, block, and censor conservative speech.

Section 230 also notes the logic behind this exemption, listing among its findings that, “The Internet and other interactive computer services offer a forum for a true diversity of political discourse, unique opportunities for cultural development, and myriad avenues for intellectual activity.”

Platforms like Twitter and Facebook are treated as distinct from publishers in large part because they refrain from discriminating based on ideology. The liability exemption exists so they may continue to function as high-tech public squares. Without Section 230, these platforms could be sued over every offensive tweet or status update, potentially forcing them to restructure their business models from the ground up.

The fact is that terms of service are arbitrarily applied so that leftists can spread their hate unchecked.

Twitter could respond in one of two ways. It could take meaningful steps to enforce an ideologically neutral and equally applied code of conduct, and thus regain its Section 230 protections. Or it could embrace its role as publisher and become like so many other online journals and newspapers, thus opening up the market for a new and genuinely neutral company to fill its niche.

Either way, we would be rid of the absurd fiction that a website that regularly bans conservatives without cause, turns a blind eye to hatemongers with the “correct” opinions, and writes leftist ideology into its terms of service is anything other than a publisher. Perhaps most importantly of all, making an example of Twitter would send a warning to other, larger tech companies that they can and will be held accountable for their actions.

Great post, Doug.

When Regan killed the Fairness Doctrine, he killed broadcast news. He also opened the door to Rush Limbaugh, Alex Jones and all the other right-wing nut jocks on radio. It was all part of a plan to lie to American voters, because Republicans can't win elections otherwise. Their policies just aren't that popular with the American voters. So they spread lies which are euphemistically referred to as propaganda or spin.

No, these companies are seen as distinct from publishers because the sheer volume of information that is posted on their platforms by, well, basically the entire planet makes it impossible for them to guarantee it is all free from libel or threats or child porn or any number of other objectionable materials. Because it is impossible to guarantee, it is not right to hold them legally responsible. But that does not mean they should not try to remove as much garbage as they conceivably can, even if they will never get rid of every last bit of hit.

As far as being ideologically impartial ... no. That simply has nothing to do with being free from legal liability. They are privately held corporations, not state broadcasters or state utilities. They receive no funding from the taxpayer. And conservatives, not liberals, destroyed the Fairness Doctrine, so even if they were considered a publishers, there'd be no obligation to be ideologically impartial. Fox News sure as hell isn't.

In fact, if they felt like it, Twitter.com could rebrand as RepublicansFuckOffAndDie.com. Not a damn thing Trump could do about it.

They don't need to make a profit. Most function as mouthpieces for their billionaire owners (e.g. Washington Post - Jeff Bezos, New York Times - Carlos Slim). The majority of leftwing emags have never made money. Sites like Salon and Slate are funded by rich donors. Network and cable news divisions can be money losers because they are divisions of major media conglomerates like Comcast or Disney. These outlets push for policies like open borders, out sourcing, and mindless consumerism that benefit their benefactors. Bezos can lose millions on the Post because he makes billions from Amazon.

I am wondering why you posted this.

Because you're a NPC, totally lacking in self-awareness.  Otherwise you wouldn't be wondering.

They aren’t a publisher. Twitter aren’t sourcing any of the content.

And again.  Twitter is writing and posting editorial comments on OTHER PEOPLE'S CONTENT.  That's publishing.

But they are a community, with community standards that you have to abide by if you want to post on their platform.

"Community" standards = editorial policy.  A platform is content neutral; Twitter is anything but.  It purges many voices and censors a great many of those who remain.

Lying and defaming and hate speech violate those standards.

Asking about the incident where the 20-yr-old black RECORDED HIMSELF beating up the 75-yr-old man in a nursing home is which of those things?

POTUS has long had a reserved account on Gab, just waiting for him.  Purging POTUS would probably be the end of Twitter, as users stampeded away.

Deng Xiaoping once quoted the old proverb: “It doesn’t matter whether a cat is black or white, if it catches mice it is a good cat.” He was endorsing what worked, capitalism in that case.

By 2020 standards, that is a profoundly un-American statement. The only thing that matters is whether the cat is black or white.

Detroit Police Arrest Man in Connection With Nursing Home Assault
Both the 20-year-old man who was arrested and the 75-year-old victim were patients of the facility, the police said.

By Derrick Bryson Taylor
May 22, 2020, 12:59 p.m. ET

The Detroit police on Thursday arrested a 20-year-old man in connection with a viral video that showed an assault on a patient at a nursing home, the authorities said.

The 90-second video, which circulated widely on social media this week, shows a young man punching a much older man dozens of times, leaving him battered and bleeding.

The police did not identify either person in the case, but said on Friday that both the younger man and the victim, 75, were patients at a facility on Detroit’s west side.

Local news outlets identified the facility as the Westwood Nursing Center. Saif Kasmikha, the managing attorney for Midwest Legal Partners, the firm representing the home, said in a statement on Friday that the man who was arrested was not a long-term resident of the facility.


Words not seen in second article:

White = zero

Black and/or African American = zero.

Officer Risk Factors Associated with Police Shootings: A Matched Case–Control Study

The study uses data from the New York City Police Department on 291 officers involved in 106 officer-involved shootings adjudicated between 2004 and 2006. Black officers were 3.3 times more likely to shoot than other officers. Officers rapidly accumulating negative marks in their files were 3.1 times more likely to shoot than other officers. Officers who started their police career later in life were less likely to shoot. The results indicate that officer features related to discharging a firearm are identifiable.

Or throw a temper tantrum like a toddler because it's suggested I wear a mask. You know, liberty or something. Now I'll go buy a tri-corner hat and carry a musket like Hannity wants me to do.

Reality vs Perception said...

The conventional thinking about police-involved shootings, and some scientific research, has been that black suspects are more likely to be shot than white suspects because of an implicit racial bias among police officers. But now a new study has found exactly the opposite: even with white officers who do have racial biases, officers are three times less likely to shoot unarmed black suspects than unarmed white suspects.

Yeah sure.

And here's the quote that lets you know Roland Fryer is a liar:

"“Who the hell wants to have a police officer put their hand on them or yell and scream at them? It’s an awful experience,” he said. “Every black man I know has had this experience. Every one of them. It is hard to believe that the world is your oyster if the police can rough you up without punishment. And when I talked to minority youth, almost every single one of them mentions lower-level uses of force as the reason why they believe the world is corrupt.”

No "minority youth" would EVER mention "lower level uses of force" as the reason they believe the world is corrupt. I worked in too many low and low-middle class "minority" neighborhoods, both of copper-colored people and hispanics. Every young person and most male adults' fear of police is, first being stopped for no reason, then in that incident being shot and killed for no reason... PERIOD.

The fear is being targeted and shot down.

5 plus minute video showing arrest of George Floyd where upon he did not resist arrest, was easily handcuffed and sat down against building. No capital crimes committed by Floyd in this video, either.

Remember, Floyd had a pig kneeling on his neck and another pig laying on his legs when the head pig kept telling him to get up and get in the car, Pigs are wingnuts. How to tell? They demand someone do somethin g superhuman while dragging pigs along for the ride. Case in point, Obama's presidency with a hostile wingnut congress.
