    Fredo's got it.....

    New York (CNN Business)

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Tuesday that he has been diagnosed with Covid-19.
    He is feeling well, and will continue to anchor his 9 p.m. program "Cuomo Prime Time" from his home.
    "In these difficult times that seem to get more difficult and complicated by the day, I just found out that I am positive for coronavirus," Cuomo wrote in a message on Twitter.
    "I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fevers, chills and shortness of breath," he wrote. "I just hope I didn't give it to the kids and Cristina. That would make me feel worse than this illness!"

    Cuomo was most recently at CNN's offices in the Hudson Yards neighborhood of New York City last Friday. He anchored from his home on Monday, and interviewed his brother, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. The two men traded brotherly barbs about the anchorman's basement live shot location.
    Cuomo said Tuesday that he is "quarantined in my basement" and will "do my shows from here."
    "We will all beat this by being smart and tough and united!" he wrote on Twitter.


    Governor Cuomo spoke about his brother's positive test result at New York state's daily briefing on Tuesday.
    "This virus is the great equalizer," he said. "My brother, Chris, is positive for coronavirus. Found out this morning."
    The governor called Chris "my best friend" and added a little bit of the good-natured ribbing they're known for: "He's young; in good shape; strong -- not as strong as he thinks, but -- he'll be fine."

    The two brothers spoke by phone earlier on Tuesday. "Now he's quarantined in the basement," the governor said. "But he's funny as hell, he says to me, 'Even the dogs won't come downstairs.'"

    This is the third case of coronavirus involving CNN's workspace in New York City. Employees were notified of another case in mid-March.
    Like other media companies, CNN has implemented sweeping changes in response to the pandemic. The vast majority of CNN employees have been working from home for several weeks. Anchors have been broadcasting from small studios and home offices. And office spaces are being regularly cleaned.

    I don't seem to remember them getting along all that well either. But Andy Cuomo would like like a real douche if he didn't say something nice about his brother after telling the whole world he was sick.

    In the Uk converting proof to % alcohol is more complicated, go google it yourself if you need to but suffice to say almost no commercially available vodka is strong enough so don't waste it.

    Mad king Trump angers the gods

    rawstory.com
    Mad king Trump angers the gods
    Published 1 min ago on April 1, 2020 By Thom Hartmann, Independent Media Institute - Commentary


    In the 4,000-year-old “Epic of Gilgamesh,” the arrogant eponymous king killed Humbaba, the giant guardian of the forest so that he could cut down the cedar stands in what is now northern Iraq to build his great city of Uruk. Gilgamesh’s people then diverted the Euphrates River to irrigate fields of barley.

    To avenge Humbaba’s murder and the destruction of the forest, the gods cursed Gilgamesh and his people. One Sumerian writer mourned that “the earth turned white. It was one of our first stories about environmental destruction—in this case, a salt buildup from irrigation that turned the fields to desert.

    The histories of most ancient civilizations carry similar stories of when their god or gods turned against the people and millions died because of environmentally destructive practices.

    If Gilgamesh’s poet were to write the “Epic” today, it might go something like this:

    The people of the Earth pulled out of the depths of the planet its blood—ancient sunlight fossil fuels captured millions of years ago by plants—and burned it to drive a powerful civilization. They tortured the Earth and its inhabitants by drilling and mining and fracking. So the gods protecting the Earth warned them, bringing plagues of cancer. But these warnings were ignored.

    The people burned so much ancient sunlight into the sky that the atmosphere began to die. The gods protecting the Earth warned them by starting a great warming, changing the face of Arctic regions and bringing extreme floods, droughts, and wildfires across the planet. But these warnings were ignored, too.

    So the gods said, “We must stop humankind from poisoning our Mother Earth. Let us send a plague that will strike dead their wise elders and brokers of political power. Surely that will get their attention and cause them to cease their violence against us.”

    So they sent the Queen of Disease, wearing her royal crown, to aid Mother Earth. The people called her “Corona,” and she struck down their elders, sickened the rest of their people, and spared only the young. It was to remind them of the Passover story of “The Plague of the Firstborn”: If the warnings were not heeded, there would be death and wailing and gnashing of teeth.

    In response, the people “sheltered in place” and the great cities of the Earth became quiet. They realized, with horror, how the false god of neoliberalism had destroyed their resilience and their ability to care for each other solely to enrich a handful of oligarchs.

    It’s as if the Earth goddess Gaia herself designed the coronavirus.

    All across the planet, carbon-burning industrial and transportation activity have ground to a near halt while pollution levels have collapsed. So much oil is not being burned that the countries of the world are running out of places to store it. Notably, the one industry that is thriving, the internet, was among the first to embrace clean, carbon-free energy.

    In some distant time, the story will be told of how arrogant King Trump caused the gods to turn against him because of his lies and procrastination, and millions died.

    Will it be, like the “Epic of Gilgamesh” and so many others, a story of a sick and twisted leader who courted disaster by ignoring the warnings of the gods, thus allowing his people to be wiped out? Or will it be a story of how humanity accepted the warning, turned its back on evil leaders, stopped poisoning the Earth and started caring for all life?

    Ultimately, the choice is ours.

    Corona Cunt of the Day 4-02-20: Rodney Howard-Browne (again)

    newsweek.com
    Conservative pastor who refused to close church amid coronavirus pandemic suggests God will help by multiplying toilet rolls
    By Christina Zhao On 3/29/20 at 9:12 PM EDT


    A conservative evangelical pastor has suggested to his followers that God will help multiply their toilet rolls amid the coronavirus pandemic.

    In a clip posted to Twitter, pastor Rodney Howard-Browne, leader of the Florida-based Revival Ministries International, told his congregation that "this should be a time of supernatural sustenance, where what you have in your hand will multiply."

    "And every day there will be multiplications," he continued. "You look at your toilet paper and you think I'm going to run out of toilet paper, but you have another roll where that one was and you don't know how did that even take place."

    Howard-Brown added: "Are the toilet paper rolls getting together and having families now? What is taking place? When you look again, there's still enough. You think you're going to run out but when you look again there's still enough. That's supernatural sustenance."

    Newsweek reached out to Howard-Browne's church for comment.

    As COVID-19 rapidly spread across the country, threatening American life and rattling global economies, Howard-Browne on March 16 told his followers at the River Tampa Bay Church that he will not be closing down because they are not "pansies."

    "We are not stopping anything," he said. "I've got news for you, this church will never close. The only time the church will close is when the Rapture is taking place.

    "This Bible school is open because we're raising up revivalists, not pansies," Howard-Browne added.

    He also told his congregation to shake each other's hands, despite the federal government urging social distancing in an attempt to contain the virus. "Well I know they don't want us to do this, but just turn around and greet two, three people. Tell them you love them, Jesus loves them," Howards-Browne said, according to the website Right Wing Watch. "Listen, this has to be the safest place. If you cannot be saved in church, you in serious trouble."

    Corona Cunt of the Day April 3rd

    What a cunt!

    https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2020...68c_popular4-1

    Report: Sen. Kelly Loeffler Downplayed the Coronavirus, Simultaneously Invested In Maker of Protective Gear

    The Georgia senator and her husband bought shares of a company that manufactures personal protective gear right around the time she claimed Democrats were misleading the public on the dangers of COVID-19.

    BY BESS LEVIN

    APRIL 1, 2020





    arlier this month, as the urgency of the coronavirus crisis sunk in for people or presidents who’d previously brushed it off, we learned that a handful of senators who’d downplayed the risks of the virus for months had also conveniently dumped millions in stock before the market fell off a cliff. Among the group was Georgia’s Kelly Loeffler, who reportedly sold stocks worth between $1,275,000 and $3,100,000 between January 24—when she sat in on a meeting of lawmakers, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases—and mid-February, not long before she tweeted: “Democrats have dangerously and intentionally misled the American people on #Coronavirus readiness. Here’s the truth: @realDonaldTrump & his administration are doing a great job working to keep Americans healthy & safe.” Now, new disclosures show even more selling of stocks in the weeks that followed, plus an extremely well-timed investment in a company that just happens to make the sort of medical equipment that is in extremely short supply at the moment.

    According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, between February 26 and March 11, Loeffler and her husband, Jeff Sprecher, who is the chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, sold $18.7 million worth of shares of the Intercontinental Exchange (the parent company of the NYSE). During that same time period, the couple also sold shares in retail companies like T.J. Maxx and Lululemon. And then there’s this:

    Sprecher bought $206,774 in chemical giant DuPont de Nemours in four transactions in late February and early March. DuPont has performed poorly on Wall Street lately, but the company is a major supplier of desperately needed personal protective gear as the global pandemic strains hospital and first responders.

    Loeffler has maintained she did nothing wrong and that an investment firm makes the day-to-day decisions for her and her husband’s portfolio. In a statement, spokesperson Kerry Rom said “Senator Loeffler came to Washington on a promise to be a different kind of elected official, she holds herself to high standards of ethics and transparency, including acting in accordance with both the letter and spirit of the law, which she has done at every step of her time in the Senate and in her lengthy career in financial services.” In a tweet, four-term congressman and GOP rival Doug Collins blasted Loeffler, writing “People are losing their jobs, their businesses, their retirements, and even their lives and Kelly Loeffler is profiting off their pain. I’m sickened just thinking about it.” In a statement texted to the Wall Street Journal, Stephen Lawson, a spokesman for Loeffler’s campaign said: “These false attacks against Senator Loeffler—from the Left, from fake news media, from career politicians—are exactly why people are fed up with Washington.”

    Earlier this week, CNN reported that the Department of Justice had launched a probe into trades made by various lawmakers ahead of the market downturn. Thus far, the FBI, in coordination with the DOJ, is said to have reached out to Senator Richard Burr, who sold between $628,000 and $1.7 million in 33 separate transactions on February 13, less than a week after he told the public it had absolutely nothing to fear re: COVID-19. (Thus far there is no indication Burr broke any laws or violated Senate rules, and he maintains he did nothing wrong.)

    Amid the mushrooming coronavirus crisis, Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch are girding for a pandemic of public-interest lawsuits over misinformation and conspiracy theories dispensed by certain Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network personalities such as Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Trish Regan.

    According to a top Murdoch executive, the father-and-son media moguls are ready to go to war with potential plaintiffs such as the Washington League for Increased Transparency and Ethics—aka WASHLITE—an activist non-profit that filed suit on Thursday against Rupert Murdoch, Fox News, and other defendants.

    The 10-page complaint, first reported by The Times of San Diego and filed in the superior court of Washington state’s King County, seeks a judgment that the Murdoch-controlled outlets violated the state’s consumer protection laws by “falsely and deceptively disseminating ‘News’ via cable news contracts that the novel Coronavirus, COVID-19 was a ‘Hoax,’ and that the virus was otherwise not a danger to public health and safety.”

    The lawsuit, which seeks “nominal damages” and “reasonable attorneys’ fees,” demands an injunction to prevent Fox outlets from “otherwise interfering with or undermining the legitimate control measures imposed within the State of Washington for the limited time period under which the pandemic is brought under control and until the pandemic is brought under control.”

    The lawsuit doesn’t list specific examples of the alleged “campaign of deception spread by the Defendants”—who also include the AT&T and Comcast cable services—but WASHLITE plans to do so in a future court filing.

    The conservative outlet fired back—in a statement provided to The Daily Beast, and attributed to Lily Fu Claffee, Fox News Media’s general counsel—that WASHLITE’s lawsuit is “Wrong on the facts, frivolous on the law.”

    Claffee added, “We will defend vigorously and seek sanctions as appropriate.”

    WASHLITE board member Arthur West, a non-lawyer and former automobile mechanic who earns what he describes as a handsome living as a professional public-interest plaintiff, told The Daily Beast that he’s not impressed by Claffee’s vow to seek retribution: “We are not afraid of the big bad Fox.”

    As for possible sanctions against him and his group, “I’m pretty sure they’ll try something like that, because that’s what bullies do,” West said, noting that WASHLITE was launched by him and four other environmental, public interest, and open records activists around three years ago.

    “We studied at the Rooster Cogburn school of litigation”—a reference to the fictional U.S. marshal in Charles Portis' novel True Grit and and the two John Wayne movies it inspired.

    West, 59, said he has been arrested numerous times in protest and civil-disobedience incidents, but claimed the rewards of successful lawsuits have allowed him to afford a lovely house in Olympia, Wash., overlooking Puget Sound and a fleet of pricey sports cars. He insisted this latest litigation against Fox is not a public-relations stunt.

    “We’re as serious as a heart attack when we go into court,” West said.

    Fox Hosts Downplay Coronavirus. Network Bosses Are Spooked.
    “This might seem strange to you,” he added, “but I make a very good living beating the government in court”—mostly suing local jurisdictions, politicians, and taxpayer-funded agencies using Washington’s public records and open records laws. “I’ve gotten a number of six-figure awards… I have a collection of European sports cars. I drive a Jaguar. I have three Mercedes 450 SLs and an Alfa Romeo. My house overlooks the water, and it was purchased with money from the liquor control board.”

    West won a $192,000 settlement after filing an open-meetings lawsuit against the agency that governs Washington’s legalized marijuana industry.

    The Murdoch exec, however, said his bosses won’t cave so easily. Former Fox Business anchor Trish Regan—who on March 9 claimed that the enemies of President Donald Trump were plotting to use the novel coronavirus outbreak to re-impeach him—lost her show, in part, to mollify a chorus of Fox critics.

    “She was a sacrificial lamb,” said the exec. But this person added that the Murdochs are done making such concessions.

    “The strategy is no settlements, even if it costs way more to fight the lawsuit and seek sanctions for ambulance-chasing lawyers,” the Murdoch exec told The Daily Beast, noting that the Murdochs retained Williams & Connolly in 2018 and engineered the dismissal of two federal lawsuits over Fox News’ conspiracy-mongering in the July 2016 robbery shooting-death of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich.

    The current lawsuit, and others like it, could meet with a similar fate on First Amendment grounds. New York Times op-ed columnist Kara Swisher, for one, wrote in a column attacking Fox News for allegedly dispensing dangerous coronavirus disinformation to her eighty-something mother: “Lawsuits are a bad idea. Here’s why: I believe in Fox News’s First Amendment right as a press organization, even if some of its on-air talent did not mind being egregiously bad at their jobs when it came to giving out accurate health data.”

    And former Fox News star Megyn Kelly, an attorney by training, recently tweeted at NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen: “Anyone filing such a lawsuit would be laughed out of court and likely sanctioned by the court for filing a frivolous lawsuit. But, whatever you need to tell yourself to stay occupied during quarantine...”

    I think he summed it up pretty good on 4/5 with:

    "As a nation, our success at containing COVID-19 is only going to be as good as our worst governor."

    Which is depressing when you see how bad some of them are. I would take that further to be "As a world".

    I think that's the angriest I've seen him when he was showing Kushner.

    Using that logic, Xi Jinping should take responsibility for China's botched handling and misinformation about the virus. Starts at the top, right?

    I think 'manipulate you' is a bit strong, manipulate you into not spreading the worst virus in 100 years?

    It's a point though and I did notice it myself. The US is probably still in the top 10 though I don't trust Iran's figures(or Russia's) and since those graphs were done the UK has leapfrogged the US. This is a marathon not a sprint and the virus doesn't respect borders. Until there is a vaccine then we are all at risk and can't live normally while it's somewhere in the world. It's not really hit developing countries yet.

    One variable in all those numbers that isn't reflected... percentage tested. That figure varies widely country to country.

    In the US, I'd say we're just now testing widely people who are symptomatic and most likely still not fully covering all who may carry the virus. Just in the last week or so has a decent number of tests become available for many areas of the US, outside of the hot spots. I expect numbers will continue to climb for another couple of weeks just based on testing availability, not necessarily due to an increase of the spread.

    Feds Warn Alex Jones to Stop Hawking Coronavirus Scams
    WHACK A TROLL
    The FDA sent a letter to the infamous conspiracy theorist on Thursday saying he needed to stop pushing colloidal silver as a therapy for COVID-19


    Lachlan Markay
    Reporter
    Updated Apr. 09, 2020 5:16PM ET / Published Apr. 09, 2020 4:55PM ET

    Drew Angerer

    The Food and Drug Administration is demanding that conspiracy theorist Alex Jones stop advertising dubious dietary supplements as coronavirus treatments and threatening legal action if he doesn’t comply.

    The FDA sent a letter to Jones and his website InfoWars on Thursday demanding that he stop telling the viewers of his popular internet broadcasts that they can ward off the virus with colloidal silver products sold on his website. Those videos, the FDA wrote, “misleadingly represent them as safe and/or effective for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19.”

    A failure to remove those claims, the agency added, “may result in legal action seeking a Federal District Court injunction and an order may require that you pay back money to consumers.”

    Jones, who is famous for fabricating conspiracy theories and marketing dubious health supplements, has been hawking supposed coronavirus-killing colloidal silver products in videos with titles like “Deep State Using Coronavirus Fear and Panic To Destroy Our Country.” In one video posted last month, he told viewers of his ”Nano Silver” supplements: “the Pentagon has come out and documented, and homeland security have said this stuff kills the whole SARS corona family, at point blank range.”

    Colloidal silver is a liquid that contains tiny particles of the metal. A number of scammers and natural medicine enthusiasts have marketed it as a coronavirus treatment since the outbreak hit the U.S. There is no scientific basis for those claims.

    Despite Jones’ on-air claims to the contrary, language on InfoWars’ online marketplace explicitly states that its colloidal silver products are not designed to treat the virus. “The products on this site are not intended for use in the cure, treatment, prevention or mitigation of any disease, including the novel coronavirus,” the website warns. “Any suggestion to the contrary is false and is expressly disavowed.”

    Jones and InfoWars were also targeted by authorities in New York last month over his claims about the products’ ability to ward off the coronavirus. The state’s attorney general sent InfoWars a cease and desist letter demanding it stop airing dubious claims about its products’ health benefits.

    Jones is among the most prominent right-wing media personalities targeted by government regulators. But others, such as Missouri televangelist Jim Bakker, have received similar warnings. The FDA wrote Bakker a letter last month demanding he stop marketing similar silver products as coronavirus treatments.

    Silver actually IS useful as an anti-bacterial. Apparently Alex is banking on the fact that his audience is too dumb to know the difference between a bacteria & a virus.

    Yup. Silver kills bacteria but take too much and you will turn into a smurf.

    Boris The Spider suddenly appreciates the NHS

    Didn't he used to side with the corporatists who wanted to privatize it??



    I'll say this for Boris though... he might look like British Trump, and his politics might not be much better, but at least his own brush with death has helped him learn a lesson. I doubt Cheeto would have had that perspective.
