    The “Infected States of America” need a “Regime Change.” VOTE BLUE and rid ourselves of the Incompetent GOP Flip the Senate Blue!

    • Why do democrats support CCP and Xi Jin Pooh? Yes the China travel ban was a consensus recommendation by the White House Pandemic Team including Fauci. Doctors and health officials did not oppose that travel ban. Trump lied.

      @nsumlar what the f*** gave you the idea that the Democrats are the one supporting the CCP. I’m a Democrat I’m off to a vietnam-era veteran and I don’t support a communist country but Trump sure does. The president of China to help him get re-elected by buying soybeans and stuff from Farmers whatever it maybe they take over there. You misinformed moron

    • Tony Hovgaard Not me. I’m on your side.

    Governor Ducey is responsible for the deaths of Arizonans

      I don’t understand why he doesn’t do anything at the very least make mask mandatory and close down places where large populations gather. He got what he asked for a 37% approval rating

    • Trump is Ultimately responsible. I don’t know Ducey but yes he shares in the reponibility.

    • FRANTHESCRAM | July 14, 2020 at 2:12 PM | Reply

      He’s a Trump yes man

      I’d argue that individuals that didn’t take necessary precautions are responsible for their own deaths and deaths of others……should of listened in science class.

  3. Trump’s policy will be better when everyone is dead. Trump couldn’t care less. He is losing money, so everyone must go.

      China lives rent free in your losers’ heads. Sad!

    • YouRuse is A leftist org

      Cool story…but is Russia Great yet?



    • @Biden is NOT the candidate LOL, whatever. How do you know the plans of the Democrats? Did your Russian bosses give them to you? Try harder next time.

  4. Less Republican voters may not be such a bad thing…these irresponsible Republican Governors will “disappear” in the next election.

  5. What’s happening in Florida, Arizona, and Texas is happening because their Governors were only looking out for the best interest of one individual, Donald Trump, instead of looking out for the best interests of the residents of their States…PLAIN And SIMPLE. DeSantis along with other republican governors, are of the belief that they work for Trump, and not the people of their States. The same people that pay their salaries, and provide them with free room & board.

    And for that, they must be held accountable.

    • @frictionRx9 Cuomo won’t be going to prison. Sending infected elderly people to nursing homes wasn’t done with malice. He made a mistake – one that, unlike Trump, he owns. He wasn’t entirely responsible for what happened in the nursing homes either. It turns out that several employees worked multiple shifts across different homes. They spread the virus to multiple homes and contributed to the overall casualties.

    Why is there so much disagreement between medical experts and GOP politicians? It’s like Republicans want to wish and lie this whole pandemic away. In order to implement any plan to conquer this virus you need citizens willing to behave like rational adults. In the USA, about 35% of the adult population does not fit this description.

    • C B Crawford | July 14, 2020 at 2:23 AM | Reply

      They still think giving money to the masses will make us lazy, but giving handouts to billionaires somehow trickles down into the economy. How many pizzas can a few billionaires eat? The rest of us ate about 3 billion of them last year.

      I’m starting to associate the Republican part as the anti medical and anti science party

      @C B Crawford I know several Trumpturds who game the system every way they can and still only think about making more and more money. It’s a psychological disease on a nationwide scale.

      Andrew Brent: Unfortunately, this is so. You nailed it. I would add that in order to have a sane society that works for everybody….we need most to act as rational adults. We have heard so much hoo-hah over the past few years it feels like we are living in an insane asylum where truth and facts do not matter…only illusions driven by delusion.

      …..and now they want to add children to this scenario? Definitely dont have a plan to keep their lives safe.

  9. This just goes to show how poorly this pandemic was handled in the first place. While other countries are reopening or have gone back to somewhat normal, America is moving in the exact opposite direction 🤔🧐

      ​@lexa harpell totally 🙂 I hope your border holds tight! I’m in Sydney. The worrying thing about our cluster is it seems most likely it was a long haul truck driver from Melbourne & those guys are going through all borders with very little scrutiny, so you could get one of them in there too!

      Also, been too long now since you guys had a real case (excluding quarantine etc that really don’t count) so I can’t remember what your last group of cases were like there, but for the Sydney ones, this one’s different! The rest we’ve had post lockdown have been pretty weak, just clinging to life & managing to transfer to maybe one person to keep their life cycle going, so they’re caught & snubbed out VERY easily, but this one’s a different beast! It REALLY spreads, so it’s sort of caught us unawares, cause we’re used to how easy it’s been to snub out the embers. If you’ve had similar there with your last cases, you could have the same issues too, but you’re even more open than us, so that will make it even harder to grab.

      Lets hope it hasn’t got through the border & that truck drivers see increased management to try to prevent it crossing borders from here on. We really need to try for total eradication country wide I think, only way we can really be safe. I think Vic looks like that’s what they’re doing now, lets hope we can snub this one out in NSW & that we don’t get anymore from other Victorians that crossed the border before the closure, cause Gladys seems adamite she wants to stick with suppression not elimination, so if we get this one out, we’ll be there anyway, if we don’t though, the rest of the country might need to close all borders around us until Gladys succumbs to the pressure & agrees to eradicate!

      Stay safe over there 🙂 & don’t let your security guards play hanky panky if you pick up some of Victoria’s hotel quarantine cases :))

    • @C B Crawford Canada, Mexico, the entire EU………it’s sad.

    • @lexa harpell Canada did well with covid19, and we are right beside the US. We are opening back up…….slowly. But, you need federal leadership (not present in the US), trust in government (not present in the US) the ability to keep the virus response non-political (not present in the US) and trust in science (not present in the US). The Canadian method would not have worked in the US. Unfortunately, the virus response in the US isn’t the problem…….it’s a *_symptom_* of a much bigger problem.

    You can call it ‘China virus’ as much as you want but these is ‘Trump’s massacre’ of his own people.

  11. Don’t follow the Trump example. He’s literally letting people die!

    • These President, Senators and Governors must be brought to justice and deliberately cause people to suffer resulting in death. None of the specialists like Dr. Fauci follow. It is shameless and inhumane.

      Trump isn’t caring anymore he thinks we’re in a good place and keeps disagreeing with an actual medical professional who helped with AIDS.

  12. Trump: “I said to my people ” SLOW THE TESTING DOWN PLEASE!!!!”

    Trump said this in the midst of a viral pandemic.

    Trump in 2016: “You’re going to be so proud of your country if I get in. You’re going to be so proud of me as your president when I win.  Because we’re going to start dying again. We’re going to die so much, we’re going to die at every level. We’re going to die soooo much, that you may even get tired of dying. And you’ll say “please….please, it’s too much dying. WE CAN’T TAKE IT ANY MORE.!! Mr. President, it’s too much.”  And I’ll say “no it isn’t, we have to keep dying!!! More more more!!”

      @Pedophile Democrats deplatform spanish imigrants lol let’s start off with how he handled the pandemic in an irresponsible manner. Closing off from China in Early February even though he knew about it in January…. If that’s not enough he went golf between January and February and held a rally…

      @Pedophile Democrats deplatform spanish imigrants too little too late. America had the latest response then any other country.

      @Pedophile Democrats deplatform spanish imigrants oh but you forgot that Fauci said if the bans were just one week earlier we would be in a better place. Either way that doesn’t forgive the fact that the President didn’t want the testing that the WHO offered..,

    • Josiah Williams | July 14, 2020 at 11:18 AM | Reply And the President said he just wanted everyone to “stay calm” which is not an excuse he still thought the USA had close to 0 deaths when it reached 100k.

    Trump is responsible for this terrible pandemic getting out of hand in the US!

  14. Republicans: ‘the old and elderly should and are willing to die for the economy.’
    Greed Over People

    • Jerry Carnes from what I’ve read and gathered from multiple non bias sources-not true. I could go into detail but it wouldn’t matter.

    • @Jerry Carnes wait until the evictions start and the bankruptcies by both people and companies start to cascade the America downfall while other countries continue their economies. Profit over people won’t return America to prosperty with the pandemic out of control in a country of 330M and only 3.5M cases. This virus has a lot of room to grow still and the 2nd wave in the fall will catch us off guard when most immune systems are weaker.

    • Jerry Carnes | July 14, 2020 at 1:40 PM | Reply

      @Smok33 the virus isn’t political. Evictions have already started. No amount of government intervention will stop what you describe. Americas Dollar/economy was strongest before woodrow wilson sold America out to the IRS. Central banking and fiat currency is the inevitable fail to America……..left or right Ideologies do not change how repot markets work and the scam that is the federal reserve. No matter how you manage or govern under central banking the outcome will still result in slavory by debt. That’s what happens when every dollar loaned is loaned at interest. The whole reason for fighting for our independence was that we didn’t want Englands taxed currency. We went from collonists to a superpower under tax free dollars in a short period. America was lost with Woodrow Wilson as president and he even write a letter of apology to the people for selling out to the federal reserve. All this left/right/black/white division is to keep america divided. If we all came together and realized that central banks owns our govt and global agendas we could take back what we lost.

    • @Jerry Carnes people won’t come together to fight against the central bank. The idea of debt is the cental reason for economic growth. Open your eyes. Without debt, there is no economy. If there was a smaller gap in income inequality, it would be a different story.

    • Jerry Carnes | July 14, 2020 at 8:48 PM | Reply

      @Smok33 how did we prosper so well before the IRS? Yes you are correct that central banking needs debt to prosper. However we prospered well before taxes. You were forced to become someone that benefitted society instead of sitting at home collecting handouts like today.

  15. Arizona and Florida are competing for dumbest governor.
