Wait a minute, if that hydroxychloroquine is a dangerous as media and liberals say it is, shouldn’t have they all shut up when President Trump said he was taking it ? ? ?

wave May 29, 2020 at 7:35 PM

Trump is taking it because he is a Dummy. Also, he does wear face masks and he also tweeted last night for the the police to shoot the protesters in Minneapolis. That what a “Dummy” does.

Hanne Jeppesen May 29, 2020 at 8:21 PM

What difference would it have made. Trump does not listen to anyone, and the negative news was out before he disclosed he was taking it. I have a feeling he might have disclosed taking it exactly because of the negative news. No proof of course, just a hunch.

Cyn May 29, 2020 at 8:36 PM

Now there you go again, Wave, spreading your hateful lies. You really should be ashamed. You should also be embarrassed by your spelling and grammar. I mean, as long as we’re calling people dummies, right?

Wage Slave May 29, 2020 at 9:15 PM

I remember when the drug was first brought up, it was pointed out that a lot of people around the world already take it as an anti-malarial and it was safe for widespread prescription. I seem to remember that a smaller number of people in the States also took it off-label for something else, anti-inflammatory or something like that, and were upset at Trump because they thought him pushing it would make it unavailable for their own uses.

Somehow between then and now, it has become something lethal that will kill you if you take it. The only thing that changed is that Trump came out in favor of it.

I get people not like Trump. There is much not to like, and he is not a good leader of people, to put it mildly. But this twisting of reality to make him always wrong and the bad guy is getting really old.

Roz May 30, 2020 at 6:59 AM

@ Wave ~
Have you even taken Hydroxychloroquine?
It is an anti-malarial drug and it also used for Lupus and R/A which helps inflammation in one’s body. I have taken it in the past for Lupus and R/A. Had to stop taking it, since it is in the Sulfa family of drugs, which I have a reaction to. If I ever end up getting Covid-19 and my Life depended on it, I would take Hydroxychloroquine again and suffer the reaction of hives and it would be worth it,…would you?

Brandi May 29, 2020 at 9:13 PM

Seems to me that all the rioting is happening in Blue States run by progressive Democrats with upset citizens… they aren’t protesting and RIOTING because of anything Trump said (“when the looting starts the shooting starts”?) I think the President is reffering to business owners who will protect their businesses like those in the L.A. riots did. Don’t worry Wave, the Blue team will invent some formula to blame their blunders on the President and they won’t have to twist his words as obviously as you did. In the meantime you can pray for more violence and a worsening economy.

Brandi May 30, 2020 at 8:42 AM

Upon seeing the actual quote, I believe Mr Trump was indeed referring to the National Guard.
In any case the looting had already begun long before Trump made that statement, which was obviously made to discourage the looting now that the National Guard is on scene.
I am certain there are some actual armed business owners standing guard over their businesses at this point and would be surprised if some of them have not already used firearms to ward off rioters.

Brandi May 30, 2020 at 7:25 AM

I thought Minneapolis was just passionately fond of counterfeiters…. but now the Mayor of that city has informed us that all the rioters were from “out of town …or from out of state!”… oooookay……either way, the “real” residents are going to have to drive all the way to Minnetonka now just to buy a pair of socks or a set of spark plugs for the car….so I guess they made their point… whatever it is.

Oh, the irony.

Brandi May 30, 2020 at 8:54 AM

“There’s no excuse for the kind of violence that we saw yesterday. It is counterproductive” the President said “When individuals get crowbars and start prying open doors to loot, they’re not protesting. They’re not making a statement. They’re stealing. When they burn down a building, they’re committing arson and they’re destroying and undermining businesses and opportunities in their own communities. That robs jobs and opportunity from people in that area.”

Now who can argue with that?

RTC May 30, 2020 at 11:20 AM

Not me. I totally agree with you.

Brandi May 30, 2020 at 6:42 PM

No looney extremist challenges, something we can all agree on? Cool!

HappyPappy May 30, 2020 at 9:24 AM

The PANDEMIC is failing, start the RIOTING!

PH Susan May 30, 2020 at 11:15 AM

And the rioters are saying “you ain’t seen nothIng yet; wait and see what happens if Trump is re-elected.”

So the thugs and criminals are threatening all-out war if Trump is re-elected…..

Since the politicians are only looking out for themselves and interested only in the “party”, it looks as though the people are going to have to remind them just who works for whom.

They are not “leaders.” They continue to lie and show no fiscal accountability.. and the voters are allowing it. And that says the voters are not interested in fiscal accountability.

If you’re disgusted with the way things are going, you’ve only yourselves to blame.

Denmark and Finland are reporting no increase in the spread of THE WUHAN VIRUS since their schools were opened. Children are less likely to be sickened by, and spread the virus. Fresh air and sunshine is working.
Panicky girly-man CA state officials have, AGAIN, overreacted to THE WUHAN VIRUS by imposing huge unnecessary costs on us.
The economic damage of closing down workplaces, the shutting down the schools is imposing a cost on the future of our children.
Lost lessons, and psychologically damaging them are the result of this madness. The stress on families, already reeling from lost jobs, is magnified by having children stuck at home, afraid to go outside due to the lie that it is safer indoors. The big lie is still constantly trumpeted by officials and “public disservice” ads in the fake media.
If you’re too stupid to know by now how to protect yourself from a virus maybe we don’t need you fouling the gene pool.
It’s time to ask yourself…….who is in charge of you!

Hanne Jeppesen May 30, 2020 at 4:59 PM

More than 90%, perhaps as much as 95% complied with the SIP order in my native Denmark, not sure about Finland, but my guess is it is the same. I don’t see that happening here, not sure if overall national health have something to do with it. Both countries are pretty healthy and gets a far amount of exercise, biking and walking a lot more, even if they own a car. However, at least in Denmark it is still relatively cold, fifties sixties.

The Wizard May 30, 2020 at 10:37 AM

I saw that too, funny. Hope they follow up on that. What a dumb ass.

Ricardoh May 30, 2020 at 11:28 AM

I recently saw they have a new weapon to repel ship hijackers. It is a loud piercing noise gun. It causes body tremors it is so bad. They should use it on arsonists and looters during the riots.

dws01Palm May 30, 2020 at 12:35 PM

Won’t happen, makes too much sense.

Silva Harr May 30, 2020 at 12:27 PM

Let’s not forget the point: Colin knelt, we told him to stop. Nike gave him a shoe, we boycotted Nike. Actors made speeches, we told them to shut up. They held up signs, we told them they’re stupid. When they did protest peacefully, we told them to stop. So….how exactly are they allowed to protest? What’s a peaceful protest that’s acceptable to the rest of the country? How do they get their voices heard when we shout down and mock the truly peaceful protests? I’m a staunch Republican and it sickens me the way this country refuses to acknowledge the peaceful protests but acts shocked when those protests turn violent. If you told Colin or LeBron or Viola to sit down and shut up, YOU caused the riots. Well done.

dws01Palm May 30, 2020 at 12:47 PM

I will give my life to defend others right to exercise their Constitutional Rights. I also expect others to respect my Constitutional Rights. Shouting down and Rioting are not rights protected by the Constitution. If you want to protest to redress your grievances with the Government that is Constitutionally Protected, but committing Violence is not!

Do believe rioting is mostly in cities run by democrats.

While that is true most cities are run by democrats.

Cautiously Informed May 30, 2020 at 6:05 PM

I say you hit the nail squarely on the head. Yes, those are not protesters, they are criminals and crazy violent animals. And yes, the Democrats are desperately using the situation to advance their agendas of hate and total disregard for the honest law abiding members of America’s middle class.

Who Cares May 30, 2020 at 6:11 PM

No, these rioters hate Pelosi and Schumer too. When a kid gets beaten every day by their dad, and their mom doesn’t do anything to stop it, they grow up hating the mom at least as much.

PO'd May 30, 2020 at 9:22 PM

But lost the election. Not because of the Russians, the Ukranians,or
the deplorables, or the electoral college,but rather by being a poor candidate, She lost her last 2 elections, and won 2 terms as a Senator from NY. She’s only a .500 team, not good enough for the playoffs.

Brandi May 31, 2020 at 10:39 PM

Hillary also broke laws and was too important to be punished for it.
It cost her the election.
It cost the FBI & the DOJ their credibility, they lost our respect and it forever stained their reputations.
It also exposed the two tiered system of justice that has humiliated our country and shown our government to be corrupt…. that’s why Trump was elected, to drain the swamp.
And you guys still don’t get it.

My older generation was taught science, about germs, bacteria, viruses etc. unknown if kids now days are taught it.

Came across this info about large immigrant population employed in meat packing industry in Minnesota. Wonder if education in their home countries covered science?

Headline reads, ‘A large percentage of Minnesota COVID-19 patients don’t speak English’

Worth noting, during obama administration Smithfield Foods one of the largest meat processors in USA was sold to Communist China.

Kirkwood May 31, 2020 at 2:41 PM

I think that immigrants live in communities isolated by both language and culture with education proportional to their stratum in society. They probably had no understanding of what was happening in the outside world or how to deal with it. I suspect other cultural groups are also suffering a disconnect but perhaps due more to attitude. Right now they are conveniently blaming the white folks.

jjshawk May 30, 2020 at 10:23 PM

100% right . The democrats policies create these problems. Then when the people get pissed off and go crazy they blame America and Trump . They never solve poverty or racism , poor performing schools or anything , they maintain these problems for votes. Keep the people dependent on the crumbs off their democratic elite table . Think about that. Am I wrong?

Our Governor tells the story of his four children ages 4-10 watching the George Floyd video on his wife’s phone. And was lamenting how to explain this upsetting thing to them.

I really hope he is lying about this.

Since the president’s decision to turn federal law enforcement on Antifa, there’s a looming disaster for Democrats. Now the well known criminal Susan Rice is already trying to blame the Russians for the riots. Sure….why not.
Get ready for a lot more deflecting from panic stricken democrats.
For our slow-witted friends who think Antifa is a bunch of commies and has nothing to do with the democrats, think again.
Antifa has been doing what they do in democrat-run cities like as Berkeley and Portland, attacking anything or anybody it thinks may be conservative.
Their criminal mayors have explicitly ordered their police forces to stand down. Clearly those mayors are treating Antifa as a democrat paramilitary force that uses violence to stop citizens’ First Amendment rights to free speech.
It’s the 21st-century version of the KKK.
Remember in November!

HappyPappy June 1, 2020 at 2:53 PM

Gov Newsance, like an adolescent bursting with excitement, couldn’t wait to reject the president’s call to control the rioters and protect business and innocent people.

Trump has successfully turned the USA into a third world country. Nothing great about America now. Another one of his failures.

Dewey's Mom June 2, 2020 at 12:53 AM

So Ozzie, what rock did you climb out from under? What king of b.s. are you telling yourself; Trump turning the USA into a third world country while you were watching main stream media tv and that is what you told and you believe it?! What a sorry excuse for someone who thinks himself/herself educated, it is just plain sad!
Obama made America a great country even though he gave a speech that informed innovative, entrepreneurial business people that they didn’t do a dang thing to earn it, blah, blah, blah! People that speak the way that you do Ozzie, should be flown over Communist China and shoved out with a little parachute that would get you to the ground in one piece and with no injuries. It would be important so that you would be able to do hard labor for the rest of your days and no, they would not like you and think that you are terrific!

Ozzie June 2, 2020 at 8:51 AM

Fox is turning on trump questioning his lack of leadership. He’s ruining America. We’re weaker, poorer, sicker, unemployed, no health care, no manufacturing jobs, coal companies bankrupt, tax breaks for the rich, roll back environmental regs, open up national parks for mining, allowing fracking along the San Andres fault. He has to go.

Dewey's Mom June 2, 2020 at 11:27 AM

Ozzie, you would rather have Biden who was bought and paid so many times, you would prefer a “puppet” that seems to be losing mental capacity every time he opens his mouth, you would stamp out “rich” folks because they didn’t squander their money and they did and do provide many jobs for so many of us? Most people like myself, did not want to “sweat” much, that is, give up my whole life towards a major goal of producing a product, kind of like Steve Jobs. am I right so far, Ozzie? This man was driven and because of it, he became rich and put many thousands of jobs out there for anyone that wants to work, just one example of a “bad” rich guy! There are many others, so if they are rich you resent them? I detect a bit of jealously there but apparently you do not see it? Did you set some goals, try to buy a house, buy one? Should the “leftists” be allowed to deprive you of private property rights? Come on Ozzie, you can’t be that one dimensional not to see all the ramifications, can you?You speak of the coal industry and the environment in one breath, you are all over the map?
Perhaps you might study the difference between conservationism and environmentalism, you really should!
Last of all, pick up some authentic history books. Look into feudal England’s history and let me know how you might enjoy taking the role of the “surf”, this is where we are headed if you younger ones stay ignorant!
Granted, we have to hold people to accountability, we need to be grateful for people like John Muir and Teedy Roosevelt, we need to be educated enough to balance all of these issuess and vote for representatives that are not seeking to grow massive wealth at our expense, strict term limits and no pandering to lobbyists, full disclosure of any “fruitful” transactions.
How do you think Pelosi acquired her fortune, her husband got cushy government contracts and they are in bed with the Newsom’s, the Brown’s, the Rockefeller family, the corruption goes on and on? Are you ok with the people that you elected, Lord help us?!
You may wish to have every area of your life “micro-managed” but let me clue you in on an important fact, if the “leftist” powers that be, ruin our country and ultimately destroy our freedoms, you will be first in line whining about it because there will be a bunch of “bad” habits that you will have to give up, your “loyalty” to their side will mean nothing to them and you can take this fact to the bank!

HappyPappy June 2, 2020 at 10:20 AM

Maybe George Floyd wasn’t such a sweetheart after all: He served 5 years in prison for aggravated assault stemming from a robbery in 2007 where he broke into a woman’s home, pressed a gun to her stomach, and searched her home for drugs and money, according to court records.
He plead guilt to the robbery where another suspect posed as a water dept employee wearing a blue uniform in an attempt to gain access to the woman’s home.
It was then a Ford Explorer pulled up to the home and 5 other males jumped out and rushed the front door.
The woman identified Floyd as the one who pushed open her door letting the others inside, according to court documents.
Floyd was arrested on 8 other occasions for between 1997 and 2005.
His brother now claims he was all about peace.

Ozzie June 2, 2020 at 11:07 AM

Well that certainly justifies murdering a citizen of the US. What’s wrong with you.

Arrested 8 times and people are worried about “dishonoring his memory?” I’d say George already took care of that by himself.

Silva June 3, 2020 at 3:05 PM

There isn’t much value in attacking George Floyd’s character, it
never mattered. George is just a spoke on very a large wheel. The whole thing might not have even blown up like it did if George Floyd was a one-off or even a two-off, but by the third time it happened in the month of May, it no longer mattered if he would’ve later been found to be a serial killer.

Trump has to go.

No fake news here….
An excerpt from the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington re: Trump’s photo op in front of St. John’s Church (not “fake news”) – “Let me be clear: The president just used a Bible, the most sacred text of the Judeo-Christian tradition, and one of the churches of my diocese without permission as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and everything that our churches stand for. And to do so… he sanctioned the use of tear gas by police officers in riot gear to clear the church yard. I am outraged. The president did not pray when he came to St. John’s, nor … did he acknowledge the agony of our country right now, and in particular, the people of color in our nation who wonder if anyone in public power will ever acknowledge their sacred work, and who are rightfully demanding an end to 400 years of systemic racism and white supremacy in our country.”
The Diocese of Washington distances itself “from the incendiary language of this president,” Budde said. She said the diocese stands with those protesting racism and police brutality. “I just can’t believe what my eyes have seen tonight.”

HappyPappy June 2, 2020 at 12:37 PM

So you found ONE more leftist who doesn’t like Trump. Did you thank the media for providing another story for you to copy and paste here?
Well done.

To Do List June 2, 2020 at 1:32 PM

I found it a surprising and unfortunate speech from the bishop. There are a few times, a few precious times in one’s life a critical moment happens and your response shows who you are. You cannot un-ring that bell. She could have chosen a message of peace and love and cooperation and tried to calm things. Instead, she chose her moment as a forum to push a political agenda. She made herself small, and the moment was lost.

PH Susan June 3, 2020 at 10:23 AM

It’s most interesting that the “bishop” takes Trump to task, while the Episcopal Church continues to promote itself as a bastion and cloak of diversity and inclusion.

However, that cloak immediately comes off once you make your opinion known. They’re really not interested in discussing divergent opinions, but prefer to shout you down. I’m sure those local parishes would LOVE to see their name in print, along with names…

More hypocrisy from the left.

Ozzie – you’ve already been identified as violating copyright laws. Anything/everything you say is suspect.

* You take your “news” from the yahoo/entertainment site.
* You quote a liberal bishop from a liberal church castigating Trump as “news” ; to boot, she calls it “her” diocese.
* You state that it “justifies” killing an American citizen. Yet you FAIL to note the hundreds of INNOCENT victims that have been killed/injured during the riots.
* Since you claimed that Trump has changed the US into a “third world country,” I suggest you move to a REAL third world country where you’ll be happy. No? Then you’re just a POS hypocrite.

You’re a sorry excuse for a human… you need to learn to think for yourself.

Joey Fingers, an obviously corrupt intellectually deficient bafoon runs for prez with the DNC’s backing against an outlier and proven successful leader.
It’s difficult to believe the left thinks this BOZO has a chance of defeating Trump but he’s their best candidate?
In truth, Slow-Joe is being thrown in the fire as sacrificial a lamb because there ain’t a single person in that democrat swamp worth two $h!tz, and they all know it.
He is so out of it, he doesn’t know the difference between D-Day and the attack on Pearl Harbor.
He can’t quote the most memorable lines of the Declaration of Independence.
He confuses Princess Nancy with Mitch-the-scum-McConnell!
And he is a regular train wreck when the topic is race.
Who remembers when Slow-Joe, campaigning with obama against Romney, threatened black Americans with the idea of slavery: “He’s going to put y’all back in chains.” Good Grief, how ignorant can he be?
And let’s not forget his latest gem; “If you don’t know who to support between me and Trump then you ain’t black.”
A fun bit of condescension there; Slow-Joe, thinking he’s being folksy, dumbs down his grammar when speaking to blacks. Why would any black American vote this fool?

James Mathis Marine General ex Secretary of Defense writes:

“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try. Instead, he tries to divide us. “We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. We can unite without him, drawing on the strengths inherent in our civil society. This will not be easy, as the past few days have shown, but we owe it to our fellow citizens; to past generations that bled to defend our promise; and to our children.”

General “Mad Dog” Mattis was fired by Obama & Trump fired him too.
Some people just don’t like being fired and anyone with even a little bit of common sense might want to consider that when these people make statements about their ex boss.

Silva: I have no idea if that particular person is real or not, but it is happening. If you don’t want to listen to conservative media, look to leftist media. The LA Times 10/21/2018 (“Paid Protestors? They’re Real….”) has a nice story about paid protesters and additionally references a story by ABC news on the same thing. Also recall Presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg was quite open about hiring large numbers of people to go on social media to promote him while pretending to be unbiased voices of the community. And in the SF financial district there are (were) frequently demonstrations targeting specific companies, and if you try to match up the signs to what the people look like marching, many times it just does not fit. I used to work for a large evil company and the legally required public meetings would have the seats filled with employees so shareholders could not fit in the room to complain.

You should’ve seen some invitations that were brought to my attention by a few friends and former West Oakland neighbors that went out on Facebook, attempting to gather semi-literate groups of black people (or were they just trying to sound “cool”?) to meet at certain locations and times in Oakland to make trouble. They were written in some pretty offensive and lame imitations of “ebonics” sort of language, and words like “bidniss” (for “business”) and so on.

Anyone heard a single complaint or denial from Soros?

Is anyone else looking forward to the presidential debates?
This is the first time I have ever considered taking a day off just to watch them…in spite of losing all this work time to the last two crises.

Racisism isn’t dead but it’s on life-support, kept alive by politicians, race hustlers, and prople who get a sense of superority from denouncing others as racists.
