Time to drop a dime on these covidiots

Humboldt County residents are once again required to mask in indoor and at outdoor public settings regardless of vaccination status in accordance with the county masking order. Businesses and individuals who do not comply with the order can be reported.

“Violations of the health order may be reported to the authorities in the jurisdiction where the violations are alleged to have occurred,” according to an Aug. 5 press statement from Humboldt County Public Health. “Members of the public who wish to report a potential violation may call the appropriate county or city office directly.”

However, good luck getting your local MAGA sheriff or EPD goon to take action.

If you do see the unmasked covidiots anywhere near you leave the vicinity because these M-F’ers will be spewing their delta corona virus all over.

But hey, what the hell, let’s turn these a-holes in anyway:

Phone lines are set up to report idiot anti-maskers

The Covidiots are trying to kill you and the country

We watched that perverted westing coach Republican Jim Jordan, go on self-absorbed rant attack on public safety hero Dr. Anthony Fauci demanding to know when Americans can have their so-called freedoms back from the pandemic. “What metrics, what measures, what has to happen before Americans get more freedoms back?” whine the pitiful idiot Jordan. Fauci the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases laid out the brutal reality. “Right now, we have about 60,000 infections a day, which is a very large risk for resurge. We’re not talking about liberties. We’re talking about a pandemic that has killed 560,000 Americans,” said Fauci,

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is adamantly refusing to consider increasing unemployment benefits in his state as many workers are still struggling due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s in the face of Florida being a hot spot for the 4 wave of this pandemic thanks to DeSantis.

Then there’s the supreme idiot and Covid super spreader Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) plan to create an “America First” congressional caucus that would defend “Anglo-Saxon political traditions.” (they mean white) “These American fascists have no relation to Anglos or Saxons. They do remind us of Beowulf, though —violent, vain, boasting oafs who think killing is governance and will die doing dumb shit leaving the nation in ruins. “There is no such thing as ‘Anglo-Saxon’ political traditions’ unless “Taylor Greene is talking about Old English charters and she isn’t,” wrote University of Toronto medieval scholar Mary Rambaran-Olm. “If she wants to return to those, she’ll have to stop advocating for gun use. ‘Anglo-Saxon’ is being weaponized by the far-right.” She added that the very term “Anglo-Saxon” is a “racist dog-whistle, inaccurate and generally sucks balls.” The new caucus, which Greene co-founded with Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and has attracted membership interest from other fascist dipshits like Barry Moore (R-AL) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX).

God help us all

You can’t fix stupid, but it can still kill us

The “Freedom Angels Foundation” is leading protests in California against coronavirus lockdown measures as the virus surges to record levels throughout the state. Speaking to CBS5 during a rally outside the Santa Clara County Office, one protester said that they’d rather die than be vaccinated against the virus.

“I’m not even going to get the vaccine, you can put a bullet in my head before I’m going to do that,” the protester said, according to Newsweek.

On the Freedom Angels Foundation’s website, the group describes itself as a collection of “patriot mothers” who “won’t stand down.”

“Our arms don’t get tired, they carry core family values, they carry the generations of voices to call out when people, nations and beliefs are under oppression,” the group’s bio reads.

Last May, the group led a protest where over 2,000 demonstrators gathered in Sacramento against Gov. Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order.

God save us all from the covidiots!

Fat-Elvis covidiot Trump will not leave even when defeated

Appearing on MSNBC, the founder of CNBC walked viewers through a scenario where Donald Trump would attempt to remain in office even if he is rejected by the voters in November.

Speaking with hosts, Tom Rogers along with co-author former Senator Tim Wirth (D-CO) explained the central point of their piece in Newsweek that proposes: “How Trump Could Lose the Election– and Still Remain President. (dictator)”

According to Rogers, who began by saying his scenario was “not farfetched” he believes Trump has no chance of winning the election and will do anything to remain in office.

“This is how it happens, Biden wins,” he began. “I don’t just mean the popular vote, he wins the key swing states, he wins the electoral college. Trump claims there’s been Chinese interference in the election. He’s been talking about Biden’s soft on China — China wanted Biden to win so he says a national emergency; the Chinese have intervened in the election.”

“Why do I think that’s real?” he continued. “Just ten days ago he tweeted, he actually tweeted, ‘rigged 2020 election,’ millions of mail-in ballots will be printed by foreign countries it will be the scandal of our times. so he’s laying the groundwork for this. So he does an investigation and [Attorney General Bill] Barr backs this up with all kinds of legal opinions about emergency powers that the president has.”

“Then what happens is it’s all geared towards December 14th. Why December 14th? Well, that’s the deadline when the electors of the states have to be chosen,” he elaborated. “Why is that key? Because that’s what the Supreme Court used in Bush v. Gore to cut off the Florida counting. They keep this national emergency investigation going through December 14th. Biden, of course, challenges this in the courts and says, ‘hey, we won these states, I want the electors that favored me named. The Supreme Court doesn’t throw the election to the Republicans as it did in 2000, instead, it says, ‘look, there’s a deadline here.’ If they can’t be certified in these states because of this investigation going on, there’s a constitutional process for this.”

“What’s the constitutional process? It goes to the House of Representatives,” Roger continued. “Everybody says, ‘that’s good. Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats control the House. No. when a presidential election is thrown into the House of Representatives under the Constitution, it’s state-by-state vote. Each state gets one vote based on the number of Republicans and Democrats in that delegation. Today Republicans control the House on that kind of vote it 26-23 with on delegation, Pennsylvania split. Even if Pennsylvania was to elect a Democratic delegation, come this new election because it’s the new Congress that votes here, it would be 26 to 24 Republicans and Trump retains the presidency.”

He then concluded, “It is not so farfetched — he [Trump] is planning to do this.”

Hey Covidiots, even Darth Vader is wearing a mask

Right-wing Republican Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney posted a photo of former Vice President Dick Cheney sporting a face mask on Friday and took a shot at the manhood of people who refuse to wear face coverings in a seeming jab at Covidiot leader Donald Trump. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, posted the photo of her father as lawmakers push harder for their constituents to wear face masks to limit the spread of coronavirus. Trump has been loath to wear a mask, despite the advice of public health experts. “Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks,” the younger Cheney tweeted Friday along with a photo of her father wearing a mask.

Dick Cheney says WEAR A MASK. #realmenwearmasks

Masks remain a sticking point for some politicians, most notably Trump, even as the number of coronavirus cases climbs past 2.4 million, according to data from the Johns Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that everyone “should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.”

But Trump has continued to defy health recommendations and has been reluctant to be seen wearing a mask in public. He recently told The Wall Street Journal that masks are “a double-edged sword” and also suggested that masks are being worn as a political statement, rather than a health precaution, to show disapproval of him.

Some Republican governors, such as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have resisted mandating face masks be worn in public in their states despite new coronavirus peaks in their states. Experts say wearing a face mask or other face-covering could reduce the transmission of Covid-19 by as much as 50%.

Cheney’s comments on Friday were not her first to run counter to Trump’s decisions in combating the coronavirus. Cheney said in March that the US must address its health care crisis in order to restore the economy, as some of Trump’s allies pushed to reopen the country despite the threat of the coronavirus pandemic. “There will be no normally functioning economy if our hospitals are overwhelmed and thousands of Americans of all ages, including our doctors and nurses, lay dying because we have failed to do what’s necessary to stop the virus,” Cheney wrote on Twitter.

In April, Cheney pushed back against a false claim by Trump that he has “total” authority to decide to lift restrictions governors have imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic.”The federal government does not have absolute power,” Cheney tweeted at the time, though she did not mention Trump explicitly. The Wyoming Republican invoked the 10th Amendment to the Constitution in her tweet, saying, “‘The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.’ United States Constitution, Amendment X.”

Cheney is not alone in calling for mask-wearing. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, whose state of Florida has seen a recent surge of coronavirus cases, said Wednesday that “everyone should just wear a damn mask.”

Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden said Friday that if elected president, he would make wearing a face covering in public mandatory. Last month, Trump and the White House had mocked Biden for wearing a mask outdoors to a Memorial Day event, leading Biden to fire back in an interview with CNN, calling Trump “an absolute fool.”

Think the worst is over? Have you seen the Covidiots?

This is spiraling out of control

Locally, you see more people finally wearing masks, that’s a good thing, Thank You!
Then you look at Trinidad or go out to Ruth Lake or Trinity Lake and you see the Covidiots running amok spreading their ignorance and infection. This is what a lack of leadership looks like. Locally and most of all nationally. This stupidity is going to make this health catastrophe and economic Armageddon last for years and we’re all going to suffer. -TE

As America once again plunges into a pandemic crisis, with Covid-19 infections exploding across the country, and especially in red states, Trump continues to plot against America’s best interests. Refusing to provide any leadership over the last three months, he’s made the crisis actively worse by urging Americans not to wear masks,  promoting dangerous “cures,” ruminating about injecting patients with disinfectants, undercutting government scientists, ordering vital testing regimes to be  “slow[ed] down”, or halted altogether, walking away from a national tracing program, filling marathon pandemic briefings with ceaseless misinformation, making empty promises about testing, and constantly lying about the state of the crisis, insisting the deadly virus would soon “disappear,” “like a miracle.” This is treasonous behavior.

All of it is wrapped in a constant flow of confusion and public contradictions, a textbook approach for how to plunge the country into chaos and wreck the economy.  It’s exactly what an American foe would do. The U.S. today stands as an international pariah, claiming nearly 25 percent of the world’s coronavirus deaths while accounting for just four percent of the world’s population. On Wednesday, the U.S. logged an astounding 45,000 news cases.

Yet we still don’t know why Trump is doing this — we don’t know why he’s plotting against America during a once-in-a-century public health crisis, even as his erratic actions increasingly doom his re-election chances. And it feels like the press is too nervous to ask why.

The media for months has preferred to suggest Trump was merely distracted, “slow” to respond to the crisis; that he simply “missed” the Covid-19 warnings. Trump “ignored” crucial warnings, the Associated Press recently concluded, noting that key aides were unable to “redirect the president’s attention” to Covid-19 in January, as Trump’s impeachment trial unfolded this winter. The message from seemed to be that if Trump’s attention had been directed towards the looming pandemic, the government’s response would have been entirely different, and far more robust.

This sanitized explanation is because the Beltway press doesn’t want to ask the far more disturbing questions about why Trump essentially ordered the government to stand down for a virus invasion that has claimed the lives of more than 112,000 Americans.

The New York Times recently published a piece headlined, “Why the Coronavirus is winning,” in which Trump’s name was never mentioned. Instead, the paper ambiguously stated, “Government officials, for their part, can slow the virus’s spread by encouraging all of these steps, as well as by organizing widespread testing and competent tracing of people who are likely to have the virus.”

It’s not as if Trump has simply been misguided and made wrong decisions along the way. It’s that Trump purposefully refused to use the vast powers of the federal government to protect the country from the virus crisis, and has urged Republican governors to rush ahead with deadly re-open plans. His actions have killed untold numbers of Americans.

Having the worst pandemic response among all developed nations doesn’t just happen. It takes a lot of work to screw up this badly. The failure to protect has been so thorough and so complete it’s difficult to suggest it’s happened coincidentally.

Maybe Trump’s vengeful. Maybe he’s under the thumb of a foreign entity? He wants to cause panic and cancel the November elections? He’s a nihilist? What matters is asking the difficult questions and pondering what the Trump presidency is truly about, no matter what lurks in the shadows.

It didn’t have to be this way. “Experts in public health are essentially unanimous that minimizing the toll of the virus depends on forceful federal action to supercharge the supply chain for testing, massively increase the daily number of tests, mobilize a nationwide contact-tracing program and get infected people to self-isolate,” Amanda Marcotte wrote at Salon. Trump had limitless resources he could have used to help fight the pandemic.

The huge surge in cases today, largely in southern and western states that have aggressively reopened, is driven by the fact that the administration is purposefully giving states no guidance in terms of how to proceed. It’s all by design. Trump sees the virus as being in his “rearview mirror,” the Times reported.

Quick example: Trump has repeatedly claimed that when he came into office his administration inherited an “empty” and “bare” Strategic National Stockpile, including no ventilators in stock. In truth, SNS had 16,660 ventilators on hand in January 2017. That’s more than the Trump administration has distributed during the pandemic.

His dereliction of duty during the reopen matches his failures back in March when he refused to take steps to protect the country. “Trump was warned countless times of the epidemic threat in his presidential daily briefings, by federal scientists, the health secretary Alex Azar, Peter Navarro, his trade adviser, Matt Pottinger, his Asia adviser, by business friends and the world at large,” the Financial Times reported.

America has never faced a national, extended crisis of this magnitude where the President of the United States is so clearly part of the problem. That’s a truly radical development and the news media ought to be treating it as a monumental story.
