To the victor go the spoils!

tiny has demanded that Sotomayor and Ginsburg recuse themselves on any cases that pertain to his administration because....bias.

In the meantime Thomas' wife is participating in the purge of all government employees who are not sufficiently biased towards tiny.

As Dinah Lord would say, it's all very rootie tootie.

We now know who or what is to blame for the coronavirus. Presidential Medal of Freedom from Reality winner Rush says this is all a hoax, it is just the common cold and the media/CDC/WHO are just trying to "get trump". I guess if you can't stop one virus you just keep trying to stop others. Tucker in the mean time has informed his cult that it is diversity and wokeness that have caused the virus.

It is good that the trumpublican cult has some real people out there speaking truth so that the followers don't get mislead.

By that of course we mean only get conned by conservative narratives.

All hail tiny!

Comforting to know we have nothing to fear from coronavirus. He Alone says he's got everything under control, so he's delegating his #2 to oversee (take the blame) of the problem.
But it looks like it's all the Dems fault.
Just thought you'd like to know.

because you can never have enough know nothing toadies.......

A university student has been given a top role in the White House, according to three administration officials with knowledge of the matter.

James Bacon, a 23-year-old student at George Washington University, will reportedly become the director of operations for the White House’s Presidential Personnel Office (PPO), Politico reported.

The White House’s website says the PPO oversees “the selection process for presidential appointments”.

Mr Bacon will succeed Katja Bullock, who, at more than 50 years his senior, worked under both Bush administrations and the Reagan administration.

The recently-named head of the PPO is John McEntee, 29, a former personal aide to Mr Trump.

Mr McEntee reportedly called a meeting last Thursday in which he asked officials to root out Trump critics from their midst, according to the US news website Axios.

Some suggest that Mr Bacon and Mr McEntee’s appointments are a sign that Trump wants to install loyalists and purge critics from his administration.


The running of the WH has become a reality TV show.

But I want you all to take a deep breath and remember, what other choice was there? And how could anyone have changed things? It's all for the trumpublican best, and what's good for tiny is good for....tiny and by comity therefore good for everyone in hs cult.

All Hail tiny! Long May His Tax Cuts Rule!

meh, nothing to see hear, just another never trumper pretending to be a conservative talking hYstEriCal...

Diseases, far more than any human enemy, ruthlessly expose and exploit the weaknesses of their victims. Now the coronavirus outbreak is laying bare the pathologies of the Trump administration — which include compulsive lying, pandering to dictators, ideological aversion to “globalism,” inveterate hostility toward experts and expertise, and (in a related development) sheer incompetence.

Even as the epidemic was growing, President Trump was trying to tamp down concern by fulsomely praising Xi Jinping for China’s response on Feb. 7: “He is strong, sharp and powerfully focused on leading the counterattack on the Coronavirus.” Trump went on to assure the world that Xi “will be successful, especially as the weather starts to warm & the virus hopefully becomes weaker, and then gone.” This turned out to be nearly as premature as Trump’s earlier assurance that another communist dictator, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, had “agreed to denuclearization.”

Covid-19 has already infected more than 80,000 people in 37 countries, causing more than 2,600 deaths, and experts doubt it will slow in the spring. Yet Trump tweeted on Monday that “the Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA” and “Stock Market starting to look very good to me!” By Tuesday, the stock market had experienced two days of sharp drops, and the director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, Nancy Messonnier, was urging “the American public to work with us to prepare, in the expectation that this could be bad.”

That a virus that started in China could have a bad impact on the United States should be no surprise: Diseases don’t respect borders any more than terrorists or trade flows do. Transnational threats require transnational solutions. To cite but one example, many of the medicines and medical supplies that Americans need, including N95 face masks, come from China.

This will be news only to an ultra-nationalist president animated by unreasoning animus to “globalism.” This prejudice is about as silly as being hostile to “the weather.” Globalism isn’t something you can be for or against; it’s simply a fact of life. But Trump’s whole presidency is built on denying basic realities such as global warming and Russian attacks on our politics.

Rather than focus on real threats such as pandemics, climate change and Russian aggression, the administration is fixated on politically convenient boogeymen such as “criminal aliens” and Nigerian immigrants. The administration’s latest budget calls for a $3 billion cut for global health programs, including a 53 percent cut in funding for the World Health Organization. This comes on top of earlier budget cuts that forced the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to downsize its global health security initiative in 39 out of 49 countries.

Seeking to undo everything that his predecessor had done, Trump dismantled the epidemic-fighting infrastructure the Obama administration had built up at the National Security Council and the Department of Homeland Security. One of John Bolton’s first acts upon becoming national security adviser in 2018 was to dismiss the NSC’s global health team led by Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer, a widely respected public-health expert.

These moves are emblematic of the president’s contempt for apolitical civil servants who know what they are doing. He prefers unqualified political hacks whose only loyalty is to him rather than to the country. Many top administration posts are already filled by “acting” placeholders while further purges are being launched by the new head of presidential personnel, the president’s 29-year-old former “body man” (i.e., gofer), John McEntee, with the assistance of a 23-year-old college senior.
Even as America mobilizes against a global epidemic — soon to be a pandemic, according to a former CDC director — two-thirds of the top jobs at DHS are devoid of Senate-approved appointees. The second acting secretary in a row, Chad Wolf, inspired incredulity from both Republicans and Democrats with his Senate testimony on Tuesday. He claimed the mortality rate for covid-19 is around 2 percent — roughly the same, he said, as the common flu. In fact, the mortality rate for influenza is around 0.1 percent.

Meanwhile, the acting deputy secretary, arch-nativist Ken Cuccinelli, took to Twitter to ask for the public’s help in accessing an online map from Johns Hopkins University tracking the virus’s spread. Imagine if the head of U.S. Strategic Command asked the public for helping in learning about nuclear weapons, and you start to comprehend the scale of the problem.

Trump was said to be furious that the State Department had overruled the CDC and flown 14 sick Americans home from Japan on aircraft with healthy passengers. He wasn’t notified until after the fact, and neither were some members of his coronavirus task force. The “chaos president” will try to find scapegoats, but he has no one but himself to blame for this chaotic response. He can’t figure out how to spell “coronavirus,” much less how to fight it.

At a time like this, it would be a lot more reassuring to think that there were actual, you know, experts in charge of the government rather than ignorant ideologues chosen for their dedication to a supreme leader unconstrained by fact, logic or morality. Where’s the “deep state” when you need it most?


The pointy heads at WaPo should realize we don't need no Max, we gots Rush who will splain to us everything we need to know nothing about this hoax. And now we got Mike "free needles will just encourage drug use" Pence to spearhead the scapegoating and take the fall. We are ready for this. I think the stock market is doing great today.

Maybe this is a good point....

It mattered when the White House press secretary, in his first day on the job, lied about President Trump’s inaugural crowd size.

It mattered when Trump said that wind turbines cause cancer.

It mattered when he claimed that a half-dozen steel mills had reopened when they hadn’t. It mattered when he promised that his health-care plan (and his infrastructure plan and his wife’s immigration records) would be released in “two weeks,” and those weeks passed without such promises materializing.

Maybe that stuff seemed minor at the time. But the smallness of the lies was actually critical. People learned that if Trump can’t be trusted about little things, he definitely can’t be trusted about big things. Such as, say, a possible pandemic. Even if, miraculously, Trump and his underlings told only the truth from here on out — an about-face that seems unlikely — their record would still endanger public health and the economy.

University of Chicago economics professor Austan Goolsbee has a rule for this phenomenon called the “pathological irony of crisis”: If you lose credibility, your statements begin to mean the opposite of what you say.

In other words: Entreaties to “remain calm” instead get interpreted as reasons to panic, even when calm might be justified.

As coronavirus spreads, Americans worried about health risks now increasingly have economic concerns, too. Stock markets just achieved their fastest correction in history, with the S&P 500 dropping a whopping 4.4 percent on Thursday alone. A major outbreak in the United States could hurt economic growth if businesses shutter and workers are quarantined. Even if a lot of people don’t become sick in the United States, the epidemic could cause serious pain — through a few channels.

Some are relatively obvious, including supply-chain disruptions that would make it hard for manufacturers to get parts they need from abroad. Idled factories would reduce demand for U.S. energy. Travel restrictions would jeopardize the tourism industry. And so on.

Some potential economic harms are less intuitive. In particular: a blow to public confidence.

Companies might cancel orders or workers’ shifts to be cautious because they fear others may do so.

Or government officials might prove themselves so incompetent and unreliable that everyone assumes the worst and preemptively hunkers down.

Trump clearly understands that government messaging can move markets; he blames the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for issuing warnings that may have unnerved traders. At his news conference Wednesday, he also scolded Democrats for allegedly “trying to create a panic.” Trump seems not to realize that saying everything is fine when no one trusts you to assess the situation honestly can cause people to freak out, too.



meh, remember that thing Obummer did? Yeah that was just like this. And don't even get me started on FDR and his lying socialist agenda.

There truly is only one thing a principled conservative can believe in right now, tiny and Rush and Breitbart.

My wife reminded me of a study done awhile back, it showed that one of the traits of "conservatives" is that they are strongly motivated by fear. Burning the Constitution and letting a madman run wild; well to the victor goes the spoils, it's great fun to see the libereals triggered.

Wait; I could get sick and die and the economy could get shut down because of the shuttering of biness? How did the Democrats let this nincompoop get elected?

Oh, and Romney is now a "non-conservative".

If I spoke tardigrade I would ask them what their plans are and how I could invest in them.

The legend of the God King grows even greater......

Mulvaney while speaking at Friday's Conservative Political Action Conference declared that the president basically "never sleeps," having apparently barely done so before addressing the nation about the coronavirus crisis earlier this week.

"He flew to India, did a day and a half of work, flew back, did not sleep on the flight home, and I know that because he's emailing and texting and taking phone calls," Mulvaney said.

Trump arrived back in the U.S. on an 18-hour return trip from India, during which Mulvaney claims he got no sleep whatsoever, early on Wednesday morning, proceeding to deliver a press conference about 12 hours later running on what Mulvaney described to be at least "a day and a half" without sleep.

Although Mulvaney chalked up Trump's wacky sleep schedule to his desire to get the most out of his time in office, Trump seemingly didn't get a whole lot of sleep even as a private citizen. In his 2004 book Think Like a Billionaire, he wrote that he sleeps "about four hours per night," urging readers not to "sleep any more than you have to."


A recipe for insane success!

Pence has conferred with the CDC and he wants us to know that they believe more tax cuts will stem the tide on coronavirus derangement syndrome.

God King tiny's thought and prayers are with us all and that will sustain us until the tax cuts come through,

Safe to say that if Joe somehow rides this surge to the nomination the Berners will raise Holy Conspiracy hell and sit out another general.
