The Trump Presidency...

Donald Dump Rarely Reads Intelligence Reports, Prefers Pictures And Graphs, ‘NYT’ Article.

President Donald Dump reportedly rarely reads his intelligence briefings and relies on friends, colleagues, and conservative news outlets to get his information, instead. According to the New York Times, when presented with intelligence reports, he prefers to focus on the pictures and graphs.

The news outlet interviewed nearly a dozen current and former intel officials, some of whom spoke on the record about Trump’s White House briefings.


According to those insiders, the president chooses not to read the briefings presented to him. Instead, he chats with people like Steven Wynn, a former Las Vegas casino tycoon, and conservative media executive Christopher Ruddy to get information.


“Mr. Trump rarely absorbs information that he disagrees with or that runs counter to his worldview, the officials said. Briefing him has been so great a challenge compared with his predecessors that the intelligence agencies have hired outside consultants to study how better to present information to him,” the Times writes.

Doubtless the intensive hunt for these Democrat traitors is now on, and they will all be sent to the labour camp building the wall.
 
Heaven forbid that a media outlet might (occasionally) present the other side of a story!

'President Donald Trump again went after Fox News Channel in tweets Thursday, saying that network isn’t helping Republicans get re-elected and is a net negative for him.

“Many will disagree, but @FoxNews is doing nothing to help Republicans, and me, get re-elected on November 3rd,” Trump said. “Sure, there are some truly GREAT people on Fox, but you also have some real “garbage” littered all over the network, people like Dummy Juan Williams, Schumerite Chris … Hahn, Richard Goodstein, Donna Brazile, Niel Cavuto, and many others,” the president continued. “They repeat the worst of the Democrat speaking points, and lies. All of the good is totally nullified, and more. Net Result = BAD! CNN & MSDNC are all in for the Do Nothing Democrats! Fox WAS Great!”

Well, well, well, it seems the rest of the world is catching up with President Trump!

Global clinical trial of 40,000+ healthcare workers begins to test in UK if chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can prevent COVID-19 — CTMGH

And believe me they wouldn't be throwing money at a clinical trial if there wasn't already promising pilot studies.
The rest of the world doesn't have the available empty space between the ears to catch up with Donny.

...and the headline you have randomly quoted actually says:

We really do not know if chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine are beneficial or harmful against COVID-19. The best way to find out if they are effective in preventing COVID-19 is in a randomised clinical trial. That’s what COPCOV is – and why we’re doing this study,” said Prof White.


the article goes on to say

“Based on the known pharmacology of hydroxychloroquine, coupled with the emerging knowledge surrounding SARS-CoV-2 viral replication and COVID-19 pathophysiology, we were very keen to test the effectiveness of this molecule in a preventative, rather than late-stage treatment setting. A large-scale, prospective, randomised, double-blind clinical trial in a high-risk setting is the only way to robustly determine if this medicine can lessen or prevent human infection. Previous studies have not adequately tested this hypothesis; the results of COPCOV are therefore of critical importance to public health.



So the trial is to establish whether or not there is any reputable SCIENCE behind the use of Hydroxychloroquine as a preventative therapy, before a patient becomes infected.

Also, this:

A source with knowledge of the (NHS) contract said the drug was being bought in bulk so that if it proves to be effective as a treatment there is a ready supply. “All of the drugs being purchased can be used to treat other conditions too so they don’t really go to waste if they aren’t proved effective for Covid,” the source said.

Other drugs being bought as part of the £35m contract include 1.4m tablets of lopinavir-ritonavir, which is used to treat people who are HIV positive; dexamethasone as an oral solution; and 20m azithromycin capsules in packs of up to six.




You ever taken any anti malarial drugs?

I have , including during my time in both Sri Lanka and Iraq.

Interestingly, no aircrew would take it back then because it has known long term side effects on eyesight.
Oh, and chronic liver disease and renal failure.

Long story short: anti-malarials aren't good for you. Neither is bleach taken internally...ho,hum.

And the British Armed Forces has long, tedious experience of a much more powerful anti-malarial called Larium.

Personally I think everybody who has ever taken Larium should send whatever supplies they have at the back of the medicine cabinet to:

Well, it's the right thing to do.

Well, it's the right thing to do.
I'm not an expert in clinical trials apart from taking part occasionally but I think the start point is, has anyone currently prescribed Hydroxychloroquine contracted COVID-19, apparently the answer is yes.
 
I thought this story would have got a bit more traction but it seems to have got lost in the carnival of fuckwittery


Maybe ending a deployment mid week and at 89 days was pure coincidence given how much Trump supports the troops.
WOW. What a shit show.
 
WOW. What a shit show.
It truly is, but the current US federal administration wouldn't be the first government in the world to pull a similar stunt, on military, or any other government employees.

'POLITICO first reported that Trump administration officials, on a May 12 interagency conference call, described the planned June 24 cutoff as a “hard stop,” and noted that it would leave thousands of Guard members just one day shy of qualifying for federal retirement and education benefits. Administration officials also discussed the hardship the end of the deployments would cause for states who are depending on the Guard for vital health services as they attempt to safely reopen amid the pandemic.'

This is the reason -

Thousands of Guard soldiers and airmen in California, New York and Washington state will fall just one day short of the 90 days needed to secure credits for early retirement and tuition assistance under the Post-9/11 GI bill.

And coincidentally from Tango Man, who seems to be doing nothing to enhance the politically-influential Jewish lobby's backing for him:

'President Donald Trump once again is dog-whistling to his base. While delivering a campaign-style speech at a Michigan Ford auto plant that’s been retooled to manufacture personal protective gear, Trump decided to take a walk into history and praise the company’s founder, the infamous anti-Semite Henry Ford.

'Henry Ford gave America the Model T, mass production, and after death, the non-profit Ford Foundation, but he also was an anti-Semite who reportedly blamed Jewish people for World War I and World War II, published anti-Semitic propaganda, and was a Nazi sympathizer.

“Ford is the only American mentioned by name in Hitler’s notorious ‘Mein Kampf,’” according to Religion News Service. President Trump has repeatedly called Ford “legendary.” On Thursday, Trump praised the anti-Semitic Nazi sympathizer for having “good bloodlines.”


 
That's certainly a novel approach to losing an election; killing off your own voter base. Oh well, no great loss (in either circumstance).

'A Trump-backing Oregon county that helped lead the charge to reopen has seen a spike in coronavirus cases — which could offer a snapshot of what’s to come in other areas that relaxed social distance guidelines.

'Deschutes County gained approval from state officials to reopen last week, but contact tracers have investigated 26 new positive test results since May 15, and that’s a pattern that seems to be playing out in other counties that backed President Donald Trump in the 2016 election. “This suggests that rhetoric from some of the president’s supporters against maintaining public health measures may become more muted, as the nation continues to grapple with the many unknowns about COVID-19’s continued spread,” wrote William Frey, the author of a new analysis from the Brookings Institute.

'The new cases in Deschutes County, which backed Trump 44-40 over Hillary Clinton, could roll back the state’s approval for Phase 1 reopening, which can be reviewed after a 5 percent increase — which the county far exceeded, with a 27-percent jump for the week ending May 20.'

Bit offensive don’t you think. Whilst you may not like Trump’s base, off colour remarks about their potential demise does not make you an endearing person.
 
The dog whistles are heard in Michigan

LETTER FROM MICHIGAN

Life at the Trump Tailgate: Spiked Slurpees, Culture Wars and the Coronavirus Hoax

THE STRATEGY;
{ IF THIS TO LONG FOR THOSE WITH SHORT ATTENTION SPANS JUMP TO THE NITTY GRITTY BELOW }

Michigan is beset by disease, floods and joblessness, but it’s voter fraud conspiracies that really frighten the president’s supporters. Politico link

Michigan on the whole, a state battered by Covid-19 to the tune of 5,000 deaths; a state crushed under the weight of a 22 percent unemployment rate; and now, a state reeling from a 500-year flood in mid-Michigan that has displaced tens of thousands of people. If America has a headache, Michigan has a migraine.

Country music blares from the back of a parked pickup truck. Giddy customers fork over $5 bills and pull MAGA shirts over their outfits.

Trump stuck predominantly to the script on Thursday, portraying himself as the fireman who had ventured into a state smoldering with rage and anxiety, the scent of kerosene followed close behind.

Just 24 hours before he arrived in Michigan, the president launched a dangerous disinformation campaign, accusing the secretary of state of going “rogue” by illegally sending absentee ballots to every Michigan voter. He threatened to block funding to Michigan—a state beleaguered by multiple converging disasters, including one that was unfolding just as the tweet was sent—“if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

To be clear, none of this is accurate. Voters were sent applications to vote absentee, a practice consistent with a newly adopted Michigan law (a law that exists in other states, red and blue alike). The Michigan GOP has itself sent out applications. There is nothing sordid or illegitimate going on; both parties here understand the rules of the game and are attempting to master them before November.

But Trump is playing his own game. Ever in need of a foil—be it Barack Obama’s birth certificate, John McCain, Megyn Kelly, Low Energy Jeb, Lyin’ Ted, Little Marco, Crooked Hillary, the Deep State, Never Trumpers, Sleepy Joe, Obamagate, or combinations thereof—the president has set his sights on the institution of the ballot box. The benefit is twofold: Trump can simultaneously incite the distress of his base to juice enthusiasm come November while establishing a built-in justification should he lose.

THE NITTY GRITTY

The effects are already manifest. In conversation after conversation with voters here Thursday, Trump supporters repeatedly—and completely unsolicited—say Democrats are attempting to steal the election from the president.

“I lived in Chicago for six years. We know how Mayor Daley stuffed the ballot box for JFK against Nixon.” says Keith Brudder, a 72-year-old landscape contractor from the nearby town of Willis. “That’s what the Democrats in charge here want to do, with this mail-in voting. There’s just no way to have accountability for those ballots like you do when people come to the voting booth.”

“In Wayne County alone, more than a million people who weren’t registered to vote in 2018 got to vote anyway, and that’s how Whitmer and these Democrats got elected,” says Matthew Shepard, a retired career military man who drove his hulking, orange paramilitary-style truck 90 minutes south from Shiawassee County to cheer on the president. (He offered no documentation for those statistics.) “That’s the only way Trump loses this election—this mail voting scam.”

Deborah Fuqua-Frey, who sits on the board of the Washtenaw County GOP and helped organize the pro-Trump rally here, says the United Auto Workers union “controls the outcome of the 2020 election.” And that terrifies her. “Because nobody knows how to stuff the ballot box like the UAW,” she says. “Trust me, I was a third-generation UAW member, and I know they’re always looking for new ways to cheat. That’s what they’re going to do with the mail system.”

According to Fuqua-Frey, this would represent a sinister final attempt to remove Trump from office, after the failure of the Mueller Report, the Ukraine-inspired impeachment process, and, most recently, the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Isn’t it kind of convenient that as soon as impeachment failed, we’ve suddenly got this virus?” she asks, alternating between puffs on a Winston and her inhaler.

“This was domestic political terrorism from the Democratic Party. They’ve got all these numbers inflated, especially the deaths. Nobody can explain why nobody’s dying from other causes anymore. Most of these people who are ‘dying from coronavirus’ aren’t actually dying from coronavirus. It’s domestic political terrorism. But Trump will be fine. His voters know better. We aren’t falling for it.”

And so it went Thursday in Ypsilanti. With the president paying special attention to Michigan at a time of unprecedented turmoil in the state, touring a region rich in symbolic value for his reelection campaign, nearly every conversation with his die-hard supporters detoured into the dark and conspiratorial.

Sure, there was talk outside the Ford plant of jobs created and regulations slashed and veterans taken care of. But much of that talk was perfunctory, a sort of rhetorical appetizer before digging into the red-blood entrees the president has chosen to serve up for his base.

Having obsessively covered the Republican Party from the ground-up over the past decade, from the twilight of George W. Bush through the first term of Donald Trump, I thought I’d seen it all, heard it all. But this was new. The warp speed at which alarms about voter fraud—and specifically, voting by mail—were synchronized from the president’s Twitter feed to the lips of his voters guarantees a volatile five months ahead, and a potentially volcanic period thereafter.

“This was the most exciting day of my life. Okay, the second-most exciting day, after the birth of my grandkids,” says Paula Stone, an Ypsilanti resident, after the president’s motorcade passes. Tonight, Stone says, like every other night, she’ll watch Fox News and click around the internet and social media for information about the president. But she’s not particularly interested in the highlights of his speech inside the Ford plant.

“I want to know more about this vote-by-mail fraud,” she says. “I’ve heard some shady shit is going down.”
----------------------------------------------------------------------
THE POINT
TDS isn't about people not seeing Trump for what he is, it's about deluded gullible fans swallowing every word syllable by lying syllable the while the master conman bathes himself in glory continuing to divide America to appeasing his own vanity.

The reality is no matter how many times these claims are debunked Trump spurred on by conspiracy after conspiracy and the RWM, his base will continue to believe and spread these false claims as the truth.

It sounds to me like the removal of the denisons of Deadshit County from the gene pool would be an enhancement to humankind. Interesting that you have an observation for that article, but not the one above it.

Lets face it, if it turned out that trump was miles ahead of the gobs***es and right on this malaria drug, the media would look bloody ridiculous...... I always find it astonishing the medias readiness to take every statement he makes and print the opposition view unchallenged, anyone with an ounce of self respect and objectivity would conclude the media have past some peak bias.

At least now we can watch the new white house press secretary absolutely owning the media and trumps willingness to always play offence is commendable, because it really goes against all the rules of crawling to the media.
