Sex-assault scandal leaves Dems turning on Biden en masse: Some of their most brutal comments

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is receiving significant incoming fire after a former staffer alleged he sexually assaulted her.

Last April, Tara Reade, who worked as a staffer in Biden’s Senate office from December 1992 to August 1993, told the northern California newspaper The Unionthat Biden inappropriately touched her on multiple occasions.

Massive deliveries of urns in Wuhan have raised fresh skepticism of China’s coronavirus reporting.

As families in the central Chinese city began picking up the cremated ashes of those who have died from the virus this week, photos began circulating on social media and local media outlets showing vast numbers of urns at Wuhan funeral homes.


New York hospitals would use LOTTERIES for ventilators in shortage

State emergency plans to ration ventilators if the coronavirus pandemic worsens are raising thorny ethical questions, as New York considers lotteries for access to the machines and other states contemplate denying them to those with mental disabilities.

The White House says that as yet, no one has been denied a ventilator who needed one. But as the crisis deepens, several states are putting grim plans in place to ration the vital machines.

In New York, the state's ethical guidelines for allocating ventilators in a pandemic call for devoting scarce resources to the patients who are most likely to be saved.

However, the New York report concluded that in the rare case when multiple patients are equally likely to recover, but there are limited resources to help them, hospitals should 'utilize "random selection" (e.g., lottery) methods.'

Over 500 NYC cops have tested positive for coronavirus

More than 500 members of the NYPD have tested positive for the coronavirus as of Friday.

But more than 3,000 cops are reportedly suffering 'flu like symptoms' - an indication that the number of cops who actually have the virus may be exponentially higher, according to new figures obtained by

An NYPD report shows that 512 members of the department have tested positive, including 442 uniformed officers and 70 civilian members.

Meanwhile, 4,111 police officers called in sick Friday, accounting for over 11 percent of the nearly 36,000 cops.

Of that number, 3,016 reported they were experiencing flu symptoms. People with the flu can experience congestion, fever, cough, a runny nose, headaches and fatigue - some of the same symptoms associated with COVID-19.


“Don’t come here.” Desantis: Checkpoints at state lines to keep travelers from covid-19 “epicenters” out of the panhandle

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (The News Service of Florida) — Governor Ron DeSantis said during his daily briefing Friday that checkpoints will be set up at state lines in Florida, limiting travel from covid-19 hot spots like Louisiana.

Commercial vehicles would be allowed to move freely. DeSantis said that vacation rentals will also be suspended for two weeks, “if you’re coming from one of the epicenters, we probably think you should obey the directions of your state and local officials. And if they are telling you to shelter in place do that but don’t come here.”

DeSantis says Panhandle communities have relatively low numbers of cases and they want to keep it that way.

The Governor said this is an effort to prevent people from traveling to Florida to escape other “hot spots” of the coronavirus. Details on the checkpoints weren’t extremely clear, but DeSantis said people with certain license plates would be diverted and “if they blow through the checkpoints they could be pulled over”

Coronavirus: US shutdowns and working from home could last '8 weeks or more', top health official warns

A top US health official says Americans should prepare for nearly two months or more of shutdowns and working from home as the deadlycoronavirus spreads throughout the country.

“It’s certainly going to get worse before it gets better,” Dr Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases with the the National Institutes of Health, said during an interview on Good Morning America.

He continued to say Americans could see “eight weeks or more” of shutdowns and working from home as the virus surges in communities across the country.


RI State Police, National Guard set up checkpoint to stop, log travelers from NY

HOPKINTON R.I. (WPRI) ─ Rhode Island State Police troopers and National Guard members began actively stopping passenger vehicles with New York license plates on Friday after Gov. Gina Raimondo ordered anyone traveling from the Empire State to the Ocean State to self-quarantine for 14 days upon arrival.

Troopers set up a checkpoint on I-95 in Hope Valley where drivers with New York license plates must stop and provide their contact information if they plan on staying in Rhode Island long-term.

Those who do plan to stay in Rhode Island for an extended period of time are ordered to self-quarantine for 14 days before going out in public. Anyone passing through will be allowed to continue on their travels without providing information.

The number of COVID-19 cases confirmed in the New York metro area has grown to more than 30,000 in recent days, which prompted Raimondo to mandate the self-quarantine order.

“We know New York is a hot spot, we know it’s a dangerous place,” she said.


Ohio Sets All-Mail Primary for April 28

Ohio has set a new, almost exclusively mail-in primary election for April 28 due to the coronavirus, ignoring the timing recommendations of the state elections chief and some voting-rights groups.

Republican Gov. Mike DeWine signed a sweeping relief bill containing the change Friday, though he also had advocated for a different outcome.

“Look, people have a month,” the governor said Friday, expressing disappointment a longer window wasn't provided. “We just encourage people to go ahead and fill out the application, send it in, get their ballot and go ahead and vote.”

Under the new scenario, the standard in-person primary is off and registered voters who haven't yet cast a ballot will need to apply for an absentee ballot to vote.


Primex Plastics rushes to protect Reid Health employees from COVID-19

RICHMOND, Ind. — Primex Plastics planned delivery at noon Thursday of face shields to protect Reid Health employees during the novel coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.

The product, of which Reid has ordered 1,000, did not exist Sunday; yet, four days later, Reid personnel will have face shields that fit firmly around their necks and attach to their Max Air biomedical helmets. The helmets protect against contagious airborne diseases.

"I go home pretty proud of my company and my employees," said Doug Borgsdorf, a Primex Business Unit Director who runs the division producing the shields, by telephone Wednesday.

A church connection brought Reid's need to protect its people to Primex's attention Sunday, and Primex quickly began work. Borgsdorf called it an Apollo 13 moment and an arts and crafts project when serious work began Monday. Apollo 13 because Primex took the materials it had on hand and began brainstorming what might meet Reid's needs. Some extra materials were then bought at the local Joann Fabric and Craft store.

Consulting with Reid, Primex developed 40 samples, Borgsdorf said. Within 48 hours, a prototype was ready, and within 72 hours, production began.


Joseph Lowery, Civil Rights Leader and MLK Aide, Dies at 98

The Rev. Joseph E. Lowery fought to end segregation, lived to see the election of the country’s first black president and echoed the call for “justice to roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream” in America.

For more than four decades after the death of his friend and civil rights icon, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the fiery Alabama preacher was on the front line of the battle for equality, with an unforgettable delivery that rivaled King’s — and was often more unpredictable. Lowery had a knack for cutting to the core of the country’s conscience with commentary steeped in scripture, refusing to back down whether the audience was a Jim Crow racist or a U.S. president.

“We ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back; when brown can stick around; when yellow will be mellow; when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right,” Lowery prayed at President Barack Obama’s inaugural benediction in 2009.

Lowery, 98, died Friday at home in Atlanta, surrounded by family members, they said in a statement.

He died from natural causes unrelated to the coronavirus outbreak, the statement said.

Idaho Governor Signs Bill Banning Abortions: “Abortion is Not Health Care”

The governor of Idaho has signed a bill to prohibit the killing of unborn babies in abortions as soon as the U.S. Supreme Court allows states to do so.

Sponsored by state Sen. Todd Lakey, R-Nampa, Senate Bill 1385 passed along party lines in a 27-5 vote and eventually passed in the House as well 49-18. The legislation would ban abortions once Roe v. Wade is overturned. Exceptions would be allowed for rape, incest and risks to the mother’s life. All other abortions would be considered a crime.

This week, Idaho Gov. Brad Little signed the legislation into law.

The U.S. Supreme Court took away the states’ ability to protect unborn babies from abortion, and instead allowed abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy.Roe v. Wade made the United States one of only seven countries in the world that allows elective abortions after 20 weeks.

Lakey said he would protect unborn babies from abortion now if he could, but the courts will not allow it, according to the report.

“Some of you may ask why now,” Lakey said. “We don’t know when the Supreme Court will change. But it may happen in the nine months when we’re not in session. The ability to take action is a question of time. If this bill can save the life of one unborn child, then it is worth it. It becomes effective without a need for future legislative action.”


Illegal Aliens Demand $1.2K Each in Taxpayer-Funded Checks

Illegal aliens are demanding they too receive $1,200 in federal checks from the government as part of a Chinese coronavirus crisis relief package.

Open borders organizations like the George Soros-funded United We Dream, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the National Immigration Law Center — all of which represent the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States — are pleading with the federal government to cut federal checks to illegal aliens who have Individual Tax Identification Number (ITINs).

Currently, Trump’s coronavirus relief package includes $1,200 federal checks for American citizens with Social Security Numbers (SSN) or those considered “resident aliens,” like permanent lawful residents in the U.S. on green cards.

Illegal aliens, therefore, are excluded from receiving the federal checks, a provision that has outraged the open borders lobby.

Trump considering enforced quarantine of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut

As the coronavirus pandemic overwhelms hospitals in New York state, President Trump said he is thinking about enforcing a 14-day quarantine of three northeastern states where travel out of New York has created tensions among state officials.

Trump told press reporters outside the White House on Saturday morning that he is considering quarantining the states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut before he boarded a flight to Norfolk, Virginia.

"We're thinking about certain things," Trump said. "Some people would like to see New York quarantined because it's a hot spot. New York, New Jersey, maybe one or two other places, certain parts of Connecticut quarantined. I'm thinking about that right now. We might not have to do it, but there's a possibility that sometime today, we'll do a quarantine, short-term, two weeks, on New York and probably New Jersey and certain parts of Connecticut."


Somerset Co. Caregiver Charged In Theft From Clients

(PRINCESS ANNE, MD) – Maryland State Police have charged a Somerset County woman working as a caregiver after an ongoing investigation indicates she allegedly stole money from the individuals she was caring for.

The accused is identified as Sandra J. Elliott, 34, of Marion Station, Md. She is charged with more than two dozen charges including two counts each of unauthorized use or disclosure of a credit card, unauthorized use or disclosure of a signature, forgery of private documents, issuing false documents, forgery of an order for money/goods, issuing a counterfeit order, obtaining goods/money through forgery, four counts of fraudulent identification info theft between $1,500 and $25,000, and multiple other related charges. She was released on $20,000 bond and is awaiting trial.

During the last week of December 2019, Maryland State Police at the Princess Anne Barracks were contacted by a victim who reported the alleged thefts. Responding troopers began an initial investigation that was turned over to criminal investigators in the Maryland State Police Criminal Enforcement Division.

The victim, in his 60’s, reported he and his elderly father were both disabled and live together in a home in Princess Anne, Md. Both men require in-home assistance and the accused had been hired in November 2019 to provide that help.

The State Police investigation developed evidence indicating the accused made unauthorized purchases, ATM withdrawals and cashed fraudulent checks involving both victims. The total amount of thefts from both victims is believed to be in excess of $20,000.

A State Police investigator from the Criminal Enforcement Division applied for and obtained an arrest warrant charging Elliott with 27 counts of theft, fraud, forgery and related charges. On January 28, 2020, Elliott was arrested and transported to the Salisbury Barrack. She was later taken to the Wicomico County central booking unit for processing and her initial appearance before a court commissioner.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone who may have had association with Sandra Elliott and believes they may be a victim of a theft is urged to contact Maryland State Police at the Princess Anne Barracks at 443-260-3700.

Baltimore Population Plunges To Lowest In Over A Century As Homicides Soar

Baltimore City's population dipped below the 600,000 level, not see in more than a century, as record homicides, an opioid crisis, and now an economic depression risks sending the city deeper into chaos.

The Baltimore Sun, citing new US Census data released on Thursday, estimates that the population in the city was 593,490 as of July 2019.

To give you some perspective on the collapsing population trend in Baltimore. In 1950, the city had 950,000 residents. Now it has 593,490, which is a loss of 356,510 people, or about 37.5% of the entire population in seven decades.

We've mentioned on several occasions how deindustrialization, "white flight" of the 1960/70s, the crack epidemic of the 1980/90s, and now the murder and opioid crisis has created another mass exodus, with many people fleeing for Baltimore County and other surrounding counties.


Record Numbers Turn to Online Faith Platforms

Record numbers of people are turning to online faith platforms during the coronavirus crisis as their places of worship have shut down indefinitely and people of faith are urged to remain at home.

The crisis has worsened just as Easter and Passover, high points of the year in the Christian and Jewish faiths, will be celebrated in the coming weeks.

“For the past several weeks, as Catholic dioceses around the country and around the world have suspended Masses, EWTN has been seeing a dramatic increase in media consumption,” Michael P. Warsaw, board chairman and CEO of the EWTN Global Catholic Network, told Breitbart News:

Family Research Council (FRC), a nonprofit research and educational organization that advocates for a family-centered philosophy of public life and espouses a biblical worldview, has provided a resource page titled “COVID-19 and the Church” on its website. The site offers creative ideas for churches and ministries to continue faith encounters in a safe manner during the crisis.

In his “Washington Update” Thursday, FRC President Tony Perkins especially emphasized the seriousness of the coronavirus crisis:



WHO chief's questionable past comes into focus following coronavirus response

The head of the World Health Organization, in charge of making life or death decisions on a grand scale, has been accused of covering up cholera epidemics, supporting a terrorist organization and inflating his resume to claim he conquered malaria and HIV.

Tedros Adhanom Ghegreyesus' campaign to rewrite his questionable past has some wondering whether he is the right fit to lead the global agency through the coronavirus pandemic.

"Tedros is the second-to-last person who should be heading the world World Health Organization at this time," foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang told Fox News. "The last person is (Chinese President) Xi Jinping."

The Ethiopian official, who was elected to lead the WHO in 2017, has been accused of cozying up to countries like China that have pledged millions of dollars to the agency.


Trump Authorizes Defense Secretary Mark Esper to Order National Guard and Reservists to Active Duty

President Donald Trump has authorized Defense Secretary Mark Esper to order units and individual members in the National Guard and Reserves, as well as “certain Individual Ready Reserve members,” to active duty to augment forces in the coronavirus response, according to the chief Pentagon spokesperson.

“Today the President signed an Executive Order authorizing Secretary Esper to order units and individual members in the National Guard and Reserves and certain Individual Ready Reserve members, to active duty to augment forces for the effective response to the coronavirus outbreak,” said Jonathan Hoffman in a statement released late Friday evening.

Pelosi: Increased Election Funding So There’s ‘More Vote by Mail’

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Rachel Maddow Show,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that the House is “setting up” to address pensions in the next coronavirus bill, and tied increased election funding so we can have an election with “more vote by mail” to the “coronavirus necessity list” in the House.

Pelosi said, “We need to address pensions. Actually, in that case, we had the support of the president, but not Mitch McConnell. He wouldn’t do it. He said he’d do it in another bill. So, we’re setting up for the next bill.”


Maryland virus cases double since Tuesday; Larry Hogan stresses 'stay in place'

Maryland’s number of confirmed coronavirus cases reached 774 on Friday, the state reported, marking an increase of 425 cases in the past three days as more people are tested.

The number of people testing positive for COVID-19 in the District, Maryland and Virginia combined has surpassed 1,500, more than quadrupling from a week ago.

“Over the last three days, the number of COVID-19 cases in Maryland has more than doubled,” Gov.Larry Hogan said via a press release. “Cases in the National Capital Region have more than quadrupled over the last week alone. There is no timetable and no model that can tell us exactly how long this will last or how bad this is going to get.”


I Said We'd Be At 1,000 In Three Days, (Two Days Ago)

Governor Larry Hogan

Our state has seen another dramatic increase in COVID-19 cases overnight, bringing Maryland to 992 confirmed cases. We now have more than 1,900 cases in the National Capital Region.

We are again urging all Marylanders to stay in place at home, practice social distancing and help us stop the spread of this deadly virus. Staying home saves lives.

Trump issues order to bring former troops back to active duty to assist in coronavirus response

President Trump issued an order Friday night that permits the Pentagon to bring former U.S. troops and members of the National Guard and Reserve back to active duty to augment forces already involved in the U.S. military’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, senior U.S. officials said.

The president said Friday night that the decision will “allow us to mobilize medical, disaster and emergency response personnel to help wage our battle against the virus by activating thousands of experienced service members including retirees.”


America soars past 100,000 coronavirus cases as NYC fights 'catastrophe': One New Yorker dies every 17 minutes and 911 calls hit historic highs amid fears hospitals could collapse in nine days as the Big Apple's death toll hits 450

The number of coronavirus cases in the United States has soared past 100,000 cases, and the situation in New York City has become increasingly dire as cases continue to explode, with the healthcare system threatened with imminent collapse.

Across the city, sirens wailed late into the night Friday as ambulance crews raced through empty streets from one call to the next. Medical emergency calls were up 40 percent to about 6,500 a day, shattering historical records and leading to up to 170 callers being put on hold at a time, according to EMS union officials.

FDNY officials are strongly urging New Yorkers to call 911 only if they are having urgent emergencies, such as heart troubles or problems breathing. 'Please allow first responders to assist those most in need. Only call 911 if you need help right away,' the department said in a statement.

On both Thursday and Friday, another 85 people died of the virus here, or an average of one New Yorker every 17 minutes. The city's death toll is now 450, and there are 26,697 confirmed cases.


Fauci: Italy "Hit Very Badly" By COVID-19 Due To Prevalence Of Chinese Tourists

Dr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical advisor to the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force, said Thursday that Italy has been impacted particularly badly by the coronavirus pandemic because the country hosted a high number of Chinese tourists in recent months.

“When you look at the different patterns of what happened in different countries, China versus South Korea versus what we’re seeing in northern Italy, it really gives you some interesting insight into certain things, not only in the explosive nature in certain places versus others, but as you get to your peak, how do you know when you’re turning the corner,” Fauci said on CNN.

“It’s when the new infections each day start to level off to be the same and then start going down, then you see the curve go down,” Fauci said, adding that Italy is “not there yet.”


Chinese Companies Reap Huge Profits Making Medical Masks

Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) reported on Friday that mainland Chinese companies are reaping huge profits selling face masks to combat the virus unleashed upon the world by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

One Chinese manufacturer literally described its operation as a license to print money.

Numerous factories were converted to face mask production in February, as the virus was rampaging across China and beginning to spread across the globe. One of the top customers for Chinese face masks is reportedly Italy, which is suffering through the Western world’s worst outbreak of the disease.

According to Chinese data cited by RTHK, some 8,950 manufacturers began producing face masks this year, some of them converting from garment production and other industries that were already working with fabric. They are very pleased with their profits, according to the report:


Salisbury Mayor Jake Day Takes Beer for Breakfast Nap

Coronavirus Legislation Update

March 27, 2020

Dear Mr. Albero,

I write today to update you with important information about emergency coronavirus legislation. On March 27, 2020, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 748 the  Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. This legislative package, expected to cost over $2 trillion, was crafted to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus pandemic by providing direct aid and financial assistance to taxpayers, small businesses, and the healthcare sector. While I had significant concerns about extraneous and wasteful provisions in the bill, it was important to provide urgently needed economic assistance to the American people. Below are a few of the major provisions:

Direct payments to Taxpayers:    The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will determine a taxpayer’s eligibility through recent tax filings or their Social Security Benefit Statement. Taxpayers with an adjusted gross income of $75,000 or less ($150,000 if filed jointly), will receive a one-time payment of $1,200 from the Treasury, plus an additional $500 for every child under the age of 17. 

For those taxpayers who make more than $75,000 annually ($150,000 if filed jointly), their payment will decrease by $5 for every additional $100 of income. Taxpayers with income exceeding $99,000 ($198,000 if filed jointly) will not receive this financial assistance. The payments will be deposited automatically by the Treasury, if the taxpayer has provided their direct deposit information on their 2018 or 2019 tax filing. If a taxpayer’s direct deposit information was not provided, these payments will be sent by check. 

Loans and Loan Forgiveness for Small Business:    An additional $350 billion is provided for loans through the Paycheck Protection Program through the Small Business Administration (SBA), to help small employers keep employees on payroll and sustain their business. These loans will be made available to businesses with less than 500 employees, non-profits, contractors and self-employed/sole proprietorships. The SBA will use an eligibility formula in which the loan amount is tied to the business’s payroll costs for two-and-a-half months and will max out at $10 million. Allowable use of these loans includes payroll support, salaries, paid sick leave, insurance premiums, rent, mortgages, and utilities. The legislation also waives borrower and lender fees, as well as collateral and personal guarantee requirements. In order to encourage businesses to continue to pay employees, this bill provides loan forgiveness equal to the amount spent on payroll, rent, and utilities during the first eight weeks after the loan is issued.    Small Businesses will be able to apply for this assistance at local banks that provide SBA loans, and additional SBA Disaster Loans are also available for up to $2 million of working capital.

Early Withdrawal from Retirement Accounts:    In order to provide greater flexibility during the pandemic, H.R. 748 also waives the 10% early withdrawal fee from qualified retirement accounts for withdrawals of up to $100,000. These distributions must be made for coronavirus-related hardships, and the income attributed to them will be subject to tax over three years.      

I hope this information is helpful.    Please rest assured that, as a physician, I will continue to carefully evaluate all additional responses to coronavirus here in Congress.   To keep up with my work in Congress, visit my website at and sign up to receive updates  Should you wish to unsubscribe from my newsletter, you may follow the same link.

Former Sen. Tom Coburn dies, Washington's top waste-watcher

Tom Coburn’s reputation preceded him throughout the Capitol — a cantankerous trouble-maker who was tough to work with, and more interested in blowing things up than getting things done. And that reputation was completely wrong, just about everyone who ended up working with him came to quickly realize.

Mr. Coburn, a medical doctor turned politician died overnight at age 72 after a long fight with cancer, according to former staff and colleagues, leaving one of the most substantial legacies in recent congressional history.

With a single amendment to a bill in 2010, he saved the government $262 billion, and counting. He made a cottage industry out of spotting ridiculous-sounding spending items, such as the so-called “Bridge to Nowhere” project in Alaska. His investigative work brought down the largest Social Security disability fraud ring in history.

Employee notice from Nancy & Chuck


Due to the current financial situation caused by the Corona Virus and slowdown in the economy, Nancy & Chuck have decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.

This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).
Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).

Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).
A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate.

Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by the Government.

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The Government has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens.

Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your TD, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

Rhode Island will knock on doors and stop cars to find New Yorkers to slow the spread of coronavirus

Rhode Island's governor said Friday that law enforcement officers will stop cars and knock on doors in coastal communities to identify people who've been to New York state, joining other states in restricting the movements of out-of-state visitors to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Kentucky's governor says he is considering closing the border between Kentucky and Tennessee, and checkpoints have been set up in the Florida Keys to restrict access.

"Right now, we have a pinpointed risk that we need to address, and we need to be very serious and that risk is called New York City," said Rhode Island Gov. Gina Raimondo at a news conference Friday.

Starting Saturday, Rhode Island law enforcement officers and the National Guard will be "going door-to-door" in coastal communities, asking people if they've been to New York and requesting their contact information, she said.

The Growing Chaos Inside New York’s Hospitals

Matthew Morrison is a thirty-six-year-old E.R. doctor at BronxCare, a hospital in the South Bronx, which has a large Dominican population. He speaks “medical Spanish,” he told me. “Fiebre. Dolor. Náusea. Vómito.” On Wednesday, he treated a woman in her mid-sixties with telltale signs of covid-19: fever, shortness of breath, coughing up blood. She was terrified. She told Morrison, with tears in her eyes, “Doctor, no me siento bien.” Before admitting her, Morrison gave her the same speech he’d been giving all his patients: “You’ve come to the right place. We’re here for you. Unfortunately, we don’t have a specific treatment for covid, but we’re able to offer all sorts of supportive care.” People were anxious. Another likely covid-19 patient, an older African-American man, had taken a cocktail of medication—Percocet, Benadryl, an antibiotic—to treat his aches and fever, before arriving, disoriented, at the E.R.

New York City has become an epicenter of the crisis, with more than ninety-six hundred confirmed cases as of Sunday, and hospitals are struggling to keep pace. BronxCare workers were in the process of setting up a separate triage tent, to manage covid-19 patients. Until then, the E.R.’s waiting room would be crowded with the “worried well,” or, in this case, the worried sick—people with coughs and flulike symptoms that might or might not be signs of covid-19, who’d come because they wanted to get tested. Most were sent back home, with orders to self-quarantine. Tests were being reserved for people sick enough to be hospitalized.


New York Times Blames Evangelical Christians for Coronavirus

The New York Times published an op-ed Friday that blamed evangelical Christians for the coronavirus pandemic.

The argument, by journalist and author Katherine Stewart, is that because religious voters supported Trump, that means he governs without regard for science.

Stewart also claims that Republicans, more than Democrats, are likely to deny science.

Professors Worry Their Bias Will Be Exposed by Online Classes

Professors are now worried that the political bias they bring to the classroom will be easily recorded and exposed to the public now that their courses have been moved online due to the Wuhan coronavirus.

“The coronavirus-prompted shift to remote teaching was stressful enough for faculty members before Charlie Kirk weaponized online learning,” reported the Chronicle of Higher Education on Tuesday, noting a recent tweet by the Turning Point USA (TPUSA) founder calling on students to share videos of their professors’ “blatant indoctrination.”

“To all college students who have their professors switching to online classes: Please share any and ALL videos of blatant indoctrination with [TPUSA],” tweeted Kirk on Sunday, including his organization’s contact information.

“Now is the time to document & expose the radicalism that has been infecting our schools,” added the TPUSA founder. “Transparency!”

Kirk’s call to action has caused some faculty members “to be worried,” according to the Chronicle of Higher Education, which added that some professors have said that they are taking precautions.
