Called KARMA. Even DEMOCRATS can get Covid-19

WASHINGTON  —  

Two people on Kamala Harris’ campaign plane — her communications director and a flight crew member — have tested positive for the coronavirus, upending the candidate’s travel plans in the final weeks of the contest.

Campaign officials said that although Harris had tested negative and was not in close contact with either of the people who tested positive, they will cancel her in-person campaign events until Monday, including three stops she had planned in the battleground state of North Carolina where early voting began Thursday. 

Harris also canceled a planned trip Friday to Ohio, where early voting has already begun.

Presidential nominee Joe Biden’s schedule is unchanged because he has had no contact with the infected staff members. He will participate in a televised town hall meeting Thursday evening as planned, campaign officials said.

Senator Harris was not in close contact, as defined by the CDC, with either of these individuals during the two days prior to their positive tests; as such, there is no requirement for quarantine,” campaign manager Jen O’Malley Dillon said in a statement, noting that Harris was never within six feet of either of the people and that she and all staff members flying on her campaign plane wore N-95 masks.

“Regardless, out of an abundance of caution and in line with our campaign’s commitment to the highest levels of precaution, we are canceling Senator Harris’ travel through Sunday,” O’Malley Dillon said. Harris “will return to in-person campaigning on Monday” and conduct virtual events in the meantime.

The campaign’s response to the news — canceling Harris’ public events, quickly announcing who had tested positive and disclosing when Harris had last received a negative test (Wednesday) and when she would be tested again (Thursday) — all seemed aimed at drawing a sharp contrast with President Trump, who came down with COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, roughly two weeks ago.

The White House has consistently refused to reveal when Trump last received a negative test before his illness and has also declined to say how many of his staff members or close contacts have tested positive. 

 

Nor have administration officials tried to contact people who may have been infected at White House or Trump campaign events. The Biden campaign announced it had begun the contact-tracing process to notify anyone who had come into contact with the infected staff members.

Asked how the episode would affect the campaign, O’Malley Dillon said it illustrated a central Biden message: “This shows how seriously we take COVID.” She said Harris would continue to campaign virtually, and would be sure to return to North Carolina before the election.

The staff members in question — a flight crew member whose name was not disclosed and communications director Liz Allen — had been with Harris on a flight Oct. 8, but the campaign said they were not within six feet of her for more than 15 minutes, and all three wore N95 masks. The two staff members subsequently took time off to attend personal, noncampaign events. Their infection was detected in COVID tests they were required to take before returning from an outside event to the campaign.

In addition to Harris, her husband, Doug Emhoff, had been scheduled to travel to Minnesota on Thursday with Biden’s wife, Jill, and on his own to Iowa on Friday and Georgia on Sunday. The campaign said his Thursday events had been canceled, but he would resume campaigning on Friday as he had no contact with the people who had tested positive. 

The diagnosis roiled the campaign with less than three weeks until election day, a crucial time when Biden and Harris have been hoping to advance their closing arguments, mobilize their supporters and hold on to their sizable lead in national and battleground-state polls.

Throughout the campaign, Biden has underscored the differences between the way he has taken precautions against infection and Trump’s more cavalier approach. His campaign for months conducted only online events and, once it started in-person events, sharply limited the number of people in attendance and resorted to car rallies to limit exposure. Reporters and photographers traveling with Biden and Harris have been subject to COVID testing and screening.

The campaign has been stepping up the pace of in-person events as election day nears, and as more and more states have begun early and absentee voting. Earlier this week, Biden made appearances in Michigan, to court blue-collar voters, and in Florida, where he addressed older Americans. Last week, Biden traveled to Pennsylvania, Nevada and Arizona, where he campaigned with Harris. Before that joint appearance, Harris was in Salt Lake City for her debate with Vice President Mike Pence.

" California Sen. Kamala Harris delivered a swift condemnation of the Trump administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic during the opening of Wednesday’s vice presidential debate, noting that some 210,000 people have died and more than 7.5 million people have contracted the disease.

“The American people have witnessed what is the greatest failure of any presidential administration in the history of our country,” Harris said, arguing that frontline workers had been treated like “sacrificial workers” and that Trump had repeatedly minimized the seriousness of the virus, while discouraging people from wearing masks"

Let me guess. The lefties who are so eager to tell us about Trump corruption will try to cover this up because it is not important. Or maybe because they are frauds who pretend they care when it is coinvenient.

Newsweek logoFacebook and Twitter Censorship Will Backfire and Help Trump's Campaign |

The most electrifying part of September's televised debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden came when Biden spoke with genuine passion of the pride he feels about his late son Beau's military record. Trump's response was to talk about Biden's other son, Hunter, pointing out that he was kicked out of the army for cocaine use and has pressing questions to answer about his finances. In so doing, Trump looked a bit mean. Not only that, but his punch didn't quite land, so the Biden camp would have been mightily pleased.

 

Everything has changed in the last two weeks, however, and despite the best efforts of the mainstream media and the social media giants to try to suppress the New York Post email revelations about Hunter, questions about Hunter's suitability for the highly paid role he secured with the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma will not go away. Indeed, there are further questions about some of Joe Biden's other relatives that also need to be asked and answered. The October surprise has only just begun.

That Hunter Biden has endured years of serious drug and relationship problems is not the point of this scandal. There is hardly a family in the Western world today that has not experienced similar problems. Sadly, illegal drugs and their catastrophic effects are the scourge of our times. Instead, the issue at hand concerns the access that Joe Biden gave his son during his eight years as vice president. Why, for example, did Hunter Biden accompany his father on an official trip to Beijing in 2013 while he was in the process of setting up a Chinese private equity firm? The conflict of interest is obvious. Can you imagine if one of Donald Trump's children had done the same thing? Yet just 10 days after this visit, Hunter Biden's new company received a £1 billion investment deal from the state-backed Bank of China. His hedge fund was also allowed to operate a first-of-kind arrangement in the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone. Nice work, if you can get it.

This marked the beginning of a flourishing relationship that led to Hunter Biden playing a role in the sale of Michigan-based auto supplier Henniges Automotive to the Chinese, helping to create jobs overseas. When Trump said in last month's debate, "China ate your lunch, Joe," perhaps what he should have said was: "China paid for your son's lunch, Joe."

Just consider this. On the basis of a phone call in July 2019 between President Trump and Ukraine's president, Volodymyr Zelensky, America was put through the pain of an impeachment process. Yet according to the New York Post, emails it has obtained suggest that in 2015, Hunter Biden introduced his father, who was then vice president, to a top executive at Burisma less than a year before the elder Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who was investigating the company.

Had a son of Trump's who was earning up to $50,000 a month from a Ukrainian company been seen to be involved in the removal of an inconvenient prosecutor, I'm not sure Trump would have survived as president. Yet the Post's leaked emails suggest this is exactly what happened with Joe and Hunter—and the newspaper has reported that Joe himself even boasted about the prosecutor's departure to the Council on Foreign Relations in 2018, when he said: "I looked at them and said: 'I'm leaving in six hours. If the prosecutor is not fired, you're not getting the money.'" No wonder his campaign closed up shop for the day once all of this was revealed.

The willful attempt by Twitter and Facebook to suppress this story simply will not work and has, in fact, damaged their own reputations. After all, there were no restrictions placed on recently leaked details concerning Donald Trump's tax returns—let alone the tsunami of other anti-Trump accusations that were spread through those media, from the Christopher Steele dossier to the Russia collusion hoax. Try though the anti-Trump media might, this story is not going away.

But Hunter Biden is not the only member of Joe Biden's immediate family who seems to have done rather well over the last few years. Perhaps it's time some questions were also asked about the former vice president's brother, James. A company he was formerly employed by, Hillstone International, landed contracts worth an estimated $1.5 billion to build low-cost homes in war-torn Iraq. This was at a time when Joe Biden himself led the Obama administration's Iraq policy. This could, of course, be a pure coincidence, but it is not unreasonable for questions to be asked and answered about how this came to pass.

Joe Biden's other brother Frank, a lawyer, also appears to have been extremely fortunate in recent times. Despite his lack of experience in international development, various Caribbean business projects in which he has been involved benefited from $54 million in U.S. taxpayer loans. These claims are made in Peter Schweizer's book, Profiles in Corruption. Once again, questions need to be asked and answered about this.

It is undeniable that the extended Biden family enjoyed great financial success at the same time that Joe Biden rose to become vice president of the United States. Some may dismiss this as nothing more than an illustration of the way the world works. Maybe, but when an email—which has so far not been denied—shows that access and influence appear to have been used improperly, we have the makings of a proper scandal. This could be far more serious than Hillary Clinton's missing emails.

Efforts to protect Joe Biden cannot continue if mainstream media organizations want to maintain any credibility with the public at all. We are at a decisive moment in this campaign, and I am convinced that this October surprise will change the polling numbers. Donald Trump will now be thinking hard about updating his "Sleepy Joe" epithet. It never really hit the mark, anyway. Perhaps "Corrupt Joe" or "Cover-Up Joe" is on its way.

October 15, 2020 (Thursday)
Tonight was supposed to be the night of a televised town hall meeting featuring both President Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. But, after Trump tested positive for coronavirus, the organizers of the event turned it into a virtual meeting. Trump refused to participate. So Biden arranged an event of an hour and a half on ABC. Then Trump arranged his own, separate hour-long town hall on NBC.
NBC faced deep criticism for giving Trump a platform when he had ditched the official plan. But the network made up for that criticism by giving the position of moderator to journalist Savannah Guthrie, who has a J.D. from Georgetown Law School and worked as a litigator. Although the setting of the NBC event was oddly partisan—the backdrop consisted of masked women nodding along with the president’s answers—Guthrie repeatedly pressed Trump on his evasive answers to questioners, and his frustration was palpable.
Before the event, Trump had denigrated it. “They asked me if I’d do it, I figured, ‘What the hell? We get a free hour on television,’” he said.
But the questioning did him no favors. He refused to distance himself from QAnon supporters, who believe in the conspiracy theory that Trump is secretly orchestrating an assault on a ring of pedophiles and cannibals made up of the country’s elites. He admitted he owes $400 million to someone, but insists that he doesn’t owe it to Russia or any “sinister people” and that it is a “very, very small percentage” compared to his assets. He refused to say whether he had tested negative for coronavirus on September 29, the day of his first debate with Biden, and said he could not release his tax returns because they were under audit (when Guthrie noted that there was no rule stopping him from releasing them anyway, he got visibly angry). He maintained that he has a plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, but could not describe what that is. As usual, he insisted he is treated terribly.
Meanwhile, over at his own town hall, Biden put to rest Trump’s accusations that he is senile or “sleepy.” Biden answered questions from voters ranging from what he would do about racial inequality to our standing in foreign affairs. He showed deep knowledge of the issues, citing history and statistics, as well as providing detailed plans for what he would do to address the nation's problems. He was empathetic and human—the word people keep using is “decent”—and seemed energetic and eager to get underway with his plans for getting America back on track.
In one of the more striking moments of the evening, moderator George Stephanopoulos asked Biden “If you lose, what will that say to you about where America is today?” Rather than giving the obvious answer for a presidential candidate-- “I won’t lose”—Biden demonstrated that he is willing to accept responsibility for his actions, something that has been perilously thin on the ground for the past four years, and demonstrated his confidence in his fellow Americans. “It could say that I’m a lousy candidate and I didn’t do a good job,” he told Stephanopoulos. “But… I hope that it doesn’t say that we are as racially, ethnically, and religiously at odds with one another as it appears the president wants us to be…. Because we have the greatest opportunity than any country in the world to own the 21st century and we can’t do it divided.” [sic]
After the events, fact-checkers provided the grounding for the obvious: Trump made it up as he went along, hitting some of his favorite debunked talking points, while Biden misspoke on some of the details he outlined (he got troop levels in Afghanistan wrong, for example) but stayed close to the facts.
More than anything, though, Biden reminded us of what a president is supposed to sound like. It was an extraordinary relief to hear someone actually talk about the issues the country faces, rather than make everything about himself. And then, after the televised part of his town hall ended, Biden continued to answer questions, talking to voters because, well, that’s what real politicians do.
Trump’s willingness to grab free airtime tonight reflects his campaign’s financial straits. In these last days of the campaign, as his funds dwindle, Trump has been using the resources of the federal government—also known as our tax dollars—to support his bid for reelection. He has poured more than $32 billion into direct aid for farmers, put letters in government-distributed boxes of food claiming personal credit for the program, and promised billions to seniors to help cover the cost of prescription drugs. He has planned a $300 million advertising campaign to help us “defeat despair” over the coronavirus, and has used the White House for both the Republican National Convention and a recent political rally.
All that money is supposed to move voters into Trump’s column, but tonight did nothing to aid that effort.
Still, he doesn’t much seem to care. His administration seems to have turned into a revenge operation. Today, Trump appeared to celebrate last month’s killing of murder suspect Michael Reinoehl by law enforcement officers who had been deputized as U.S. Marshals. Reinoehl was a suspect in the killing of a right-wing agitator in Portland, Oregon, when the officers shot him. “They knew who he was; they didn't want to arrest him, and in 15 minutes that ended," Trump told an audience at a campaign rally in North Carolina, seeming to gloat over an extrajudicial killing. Trump also continued to attack Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, just a week after the FBI arrested 8 men for plotting to kidnap her.
We also learned today that intelligence officers had warned White House officials, including the president, that Russians were using Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani to feed disinformation to Trump. A former intelligence official told Washington Post reporters: “The message was, “Do what you want to do, but your friend Rudy has been worked by Russian assets in Ukraine.” This makes the willingness of Republicans to push yesterday’s “revelation” of an incriminating laptop allegedly belonging to Hunter Biden even more astonishing. NBC News reports that intelligence officers are investigating that story to see if it is a foreign intelligence operation.
On Twitter tonight, conservative columnist Bill Kristol wrote, “A friend who has served at very high levels of government, a true public servant and a serious conservative, emailed me earlier: "The Republican Party has become the party of facilitating Russian agitprop and voter suppression. Not what I signed up for."
Today the administration rejected a request from California Governor Gavin Newsom for a disaster declaration to free up money to help the state after six wildfires have burned hundreds of thousands of acres across the state. California is a reliably Democratic state that will likely give its electoral votes to Biden.
Meanwhile, in the absence of a coronavirus relief bill, poverty is growing. Depending on the scale they use, researchers say 6 to 8 million Americans have slipped below the poverty line. Republican strategists appear to be willing to deepen the recession if it means crippling an incoming Biden administration. According to a report in Bloomberg, Republicans are setting the stage to kill future federal spending. If Biden is elected but the Republicans hold the Senate, they will refuse any aid to address the coronavirus crisis, thus hoping to cripple a Democratic presidency from Day One.

Rather than generalities, please point out the lies.

 

Listen to this crap. She tells us what will happen in the future by saying as a fact: " If Biden is elected but the Republicans hold the Senate, they will refuse any aid to address the coronavirus crisis, thus hoping to cripple a Democratic presidency from Day One."

Its just BS made up stuff. She has no idea what the future is but has already predicted it in a way designed to get people who need money now to vote for Biden.

Well listen to this interview of the lady who was so keen during the pandemic to show us her high priced ice cream collection during an interview. Thanks for the big smile Nancy as you gear about people losing their homes and are in a food line. And then the endless BS including actually calling CNN as supporting trump. I challenge anyone to watch this. Is that the face of the so-called empathy that they claim is important. Pelosi holding up aid so that Trump won't look good.

I am very proud to say that I have participated in the BUYcott of Goya foods after another one of the disgusting attempts by the left to bankrupt people for simply voicing their political opinion. They have created this awful situation which has reluctantly been joined by conservatives on occasion as the left obviously wont stop doing it. 

Anyways, it is up to freedom loving persons to fight these people by helping these companies. I have bough seasoning from Goya(online) and it was quite tasty. I plan to buy more food and so should you.

How a Goya boycott led to a 'buycott'

Company sales have been 'fantastic' and 'historic' following the controversy surrounding his positive comments towards President Trump in July

Nothing about the Biden corruption drops in the past 24 hours on here?

One has to read multiple threads. De-icer has tried to spread his misinformation on many of them. But I actually am enjoying myself showing the harsh truth.

That being said, I am sure Trump will lose(then again, I was sure last time.

And here is a good one. In 2016, after careful consideration, my decision was that if I were able to vote: 

I said that I would vote for Hillary Clinton. True. I believed her Temperamentally Unfit line and translated it over to a commander in Chief of a lot of weaponry. A few peace agreements later, along with a willingness to stop gas attacks in Syria, and removing some troops from the Middle East including Syria, one can see how I was wrong(although it was impossible to predict at the time).And then there is all the other great stuff. I also felt at the time that Trump was trying to lose the election. I have the same feeling again, but that is just his way. A unique, once in a lifetime person. I am glad to have been able to witness it.

I VOTED FOR HILLARY CLINTON.

Whether it's Joe Biden or Donald Trump, America's choice will alter Alberta's future

Experts say election will have lasting impact, but it's not all about Keystone XL

Less than three weeks remain before American voters head to the polls to choose four more years of U.S. President Donald Trump or a new administration headed by former vice-president Joe Biden.

And whatever happens Nov. 3, it isn't just the future of America that's at stake.

 

In Alberta, discussion about election implications have largely centred around Biden's promise to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline if Democrats win the U.S. presidential election.

But as experts see it, the stakes of a Biden victory — which would be the likely outcome were the election held today, according to CBC's Presidential Poll Tracker — can't be fully judged solely on the fate of the beleaguered pipeline or the future of fracking.

"I think it's still a question about whether he would actually reverse Keystone," Mount Royal University political scientist Duane Bratt told CBC's West of Centre podcast. "But I think it's more complicated, but Albertans are making it much simpler."

Despite that uncertainty, recent polling from Léger for 338Canada discussed on West of Centre showed that Alberta was an outlier when polling on Trump's support, suggesting that 32 per cent of Albertans would support the president compared with 68 per cent support for Biden.

Support for Biden across Canada was somewhere between 82 and 90 per cent, everywhere except Alberta.

  • Listen to this week's full episode of West of Centre here:

West of Centre37:49What's a win for Alberta on November 3rd?

Keystone future 'not a foregone conclusion'

Speaking at a news conference on Thursday, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said he was still hopeful about the future of the $8-billion US project, even should Biden win the election.

"We are working with many people in the United States who support this project, including many people in the Democratic party," Kenney said.

The pipeline, should it move forward, would transport up to 830,000 barrels of crude oil per day from Alberta to Nebraska — approximately one-fifth of all of the oil transported daily between Canada and the United States.

Alberta said in March that it had agreed to invest $1.1 billion US as equity in the project, saying at the time that over the next two decades it would take in an estimated $30 billion in tax and royalty revenues.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said Thursday the province was discussing the future of Keystone XL with American legislators 'on both sides of the aisle.' (CBC)

Scotty Greenwood, a specialist in Canada/U.S. relations with Crestview Strategy in Washington, D.C., told West of Centre that there was still "every possibility" Keystone XL goes forward given Biden's reputation as a centrist.

"He's very thoughtful on questions of energy, infrastructure — just public policy generally," Greenwood said. "So I don't take it as a foregone conclusion that he has it deep in his soul that he needs to eliminate the permit."

Greenwood said that the pipeline, the cross-border section of which has already been completed, has faced a number of challenging court rulings as of late and will face a "very delicate dance" after the election.

"I don't think it's a foregone conclusion," she said. "I know that Biden's transition team, his advisors, are all really thoughtful and are looking at a balanced approach."

Trump's executive orders aimed at moving Keystone XR forward may make him seem the preferable ally to the pipeline by some Albertans. 

But Carlo Dade, director of the trade and investment centre at the Canada West Foundation, said the pipeline presently remains in flux despite efforts of the Trump administration.

"Trump was not able to move the pipeline despite taking executive action," he told West of Centre.

Alberta as a sustainable producer

Opportunities may also arise for Alberta in a potential Biden administration, Greenwood said, when it comes to investments in sustainable projects.

"There's all sorts of innovation around carbon utilization, carbon capture and utilization, not just carbon capture and storage," Greenwood said. "So I think there's going to be a phenomenal conversation, actually, if you've got a U.S. that is open to collaborating again with its neighbours."

Greenwood cited various examples in the Canadian private sector which have a fairly large stake in U.S. energy projects, such as Stantec or Capital Power.

"Capital Power, for example, has this carbon reduction program that they've invested in that is a finalist for the Carbon XPRIZE," she said. "That's exciting, and that is an Alberta story that people here are hearing and listening to.

"It's not just the old debate of 10 or 15 years ago about oilsands."

Earlier this month, the provincial government released its new natural gas strategy, a vision the province hopes would see Alberta hosting large-scale hydrogen production facilities and be a continental leader for recycling plastics, among other initiatives.

The plan says using natural gas to produce low-emissions "blue" hydrogen could be a boon for the province. (Reuters)

Such an initiative could be another opportunity for collaboration down the line, Greenwood said, adding that a new administration could see Canada and the U.S. working together on critical minerals and rare earths.

"There's an opportunity for Alberta in it, in something like that to really help its own economy," Greenwood said.

"Use the engineering experience it already has, use the infrastructure its got and process critical minerals and rare earths in a way that would be extremely relevant to the United States."

Trump and Alberta

Last month, Trump tweeted that he had approved construction of a $22-billion railway between Alberta and Alaska that could move oil, grain, ore, container goods and potentially passengers.

If built, ATA Rail said the project would create more than 18,000 jobs for Canadian workers and bring in $60 billion to Canada's GDP through 2040.

 
a2a-map.jpg

Such a project, or Trump's efforts towards Keystone, could suggest why the president sees relatively higher support in Alberta compared to the rest of Canada, according to Léger polling. 

But Dade said that may just be perception. 

"Even misinformed perception, can drive politics and can, unfortunately, occasionally, drive policy," he said.

While some Trump policies may seem to be net positives for Alberta, Greenwood said recent unpredictability of U.S. policy — paired with Trump's adversarial nature — can lead to negative impacts on markets.

"Removing the spectre of steel and aluminum tariffs, or other punitive tariffs that could come at any moment, which is the way Trump rolls, getting rid of that is a real positive," she said.

"It's a real positive for business, it's a positive for the government to government relations, and it'll help markets."

In Bratt's view, Trump's first term has been "disastrous" for Canadian foreign policy given Canada's strong ties with international organizations.

"Whether it's the Trans-Pacific Partnership, whether it's the attacks on the World Trade Organization, whether it's pulling out of [the] Paris [climate agreement], whether it's seeing NATO as paying dues to the United States," Bratt said. "These are all hits to fundamental aspects of Canadian foreign policy.

"And a second term, he'll be even more unbound by that. That's incredibly damaging to Alberta. It's incredibly damaging to the rest of Canada."

And though a re-elected Trump may pose difficult challenges to Alberta and Canada, Greenwood said it could also provide an opportunity for Canada to "stitch the global coalition back together."

"I'm not predicting his re-election, by the way — it's really close," she said. "But if [Trump] wins, I think Canada could play a very important role in explaining to the world how important it is that we hang together with these global coalitions."

"My policies have benefited those who need it the most. The bottom 50% of households saw an astonishing 40% in net worth. Wages rose the fastest for blue-collar workers. African American, Hispanic American, Asian American unemployment all reached their lowest levels ever."

Maybe you need to revisit your source, reality says different.

You are displaying that your grasp on reality is tenuous at best.

All of trump's lies, back to 2011. Warning, it's a long read.

Yeah, yeah. Trump lies, Hillary lies, Bill lies, Biden..........He lies and plagiarizes.

I wonder what de-icer would say if Trump was caught doing that. He would be telling us that it is disqualifying for president. But it is fraudulently forgotten instead.

Watch the two minute video. It is quite entertaining.

Oops, Joe is a fraud as well.
