The primary thought running through my mind last night was why was I watching the Vice-Presidential debate.
The debate changed nothing. Pence and Harris both unimpressive.
Pence was his usual self. Did his job Always supportive of Trump. Never spoke ill of him. His performance so lacking that a fly got more attention.
Pence has a bad problem. He lies. He was consistent with past speeches in that regard last night.
Harris bothered me. My thoughts centered on whether she was Presidential timber. She was great in her preprepared responses. Hesitant otherwise.
Harris reminded me of a sports team that made it to the championship game for the first time. Like the Super Bowl or Final Four. A team has to have been there before in order to win. This was Harris’ first time. Seasoning required.
Rather than throw the baby out with the wash water, lets try something else first. Give the moderator a button to press that cuts the speaker off if the speaker speaks beyond his or her time. Debates for the highest offices in the land should not be a free for all.
Trump received some anti-body treatment while in the hospital. I believe it is called Regeneron. Still in its testing stage.
Trump considers it a miracle drug. Made him feel great. Says it might be good to give to the American people and at no cost.
Yesterday’s MIT Technology Review reported the drug was tested using fetal cells originally derived from an abortion.
What would God say? The Trump administration has consistently said fetal cells from any source should not be used for testing or as a part of a drug. If Regeneron is approved, will Right to Lifers permit its use in their bodies?
Sound way out? Think of all the stupid cases that have gone to the Supreme Court on abortion/birth control issues equally far out.
Regeneron’s final product will not utilize fetal cells in its testing or preparation. In its place will be cells from some hamster organ.
Amy Coney Barrett will be approved for the Supreme Court. It would take an apocalyptic event to prevent it.
I have written several times as to my opposition. It is based primarily on her religious background.
Recently, she is being palmed off as a Roman Catholic. Perhaps she is. Yesterday and for most of her adult life she has not. She and her husband have been members of People of Praise. A charismatic group who have beliefs way out. Like a wife must be subservient to the husband in all things. Seems her group interprets the Bible as Scalia interpreted the Constitution. To the letter.
She has said in the past that abortion is “barbaric.” It is believed she will vote for its repeal. She is anti-Obamacare. She is and/or will be against everything that has been fought for and decided favorably for the American people in the past 60 years.
I mention this religious thing again today because of Senator Durbin. He said on TV yesterday that religion would be off limits in questioning Barrett. Wrong!!! In this instance it is her religious foundation and beliefs that are crucial in deciding what “fairness” means to her while sitting on the Supreme Court.
Suppose she was a member of some Satanic group? Ok to question her on her religious beliefs then?
The woman is going to spend 30-40 years on the Court. She should be questioned on anything and everything that might affect her judgment.
Trump claims he is transparent. As transparent as a brick wall!
Will we ever be told when Trump was last tested negative?
In fact, his whole medical scenario re his recent hospitalization should be an open book.
I consider Stephen Miller the Joseph Goebbels of the Trump administration. Goebbels was Hitler’s Propaganda Minister. He even looks like Goebbels.
Miller sits at the right hand of God. His office next to Trump’s. Trump relies on his thoughts. Miller writes most of Trump’s speeches.
It was announced he has been infected with coronavirus.
Trump keeps telling us the economy is good. If so, why are so many corporations announcing big number furloughs?
The most recent Regal Cinema. Closing all U.S. theaters thursday. The move affects 40,000 employees.
Trump has been twice nominated recently for the Nobel Peace Prize. I am not certain if the nominations were for this year or next.
Friday, this year’s winner of the Nobel Peace Prize will be announced. I will be shocked if it is Trump.
The vaccine! The vaccine! The vaccine!
Even Pence last night said with confidence we would have a vaccine this year. He even used the word “soon.” Said with an aura of confidence.
Trump has done even better. I can recall several months ago when it was next year. That moved down to next month, next week, days, and now “momentarily.”
Would Trump lie to the American people by announcing and pushing a vaccine or other drug allegedly to cure coronavirus so he can be reelected?
Helen Reddy recently died at age 78. Her recording of I Am Woman became a feminist anthem.
Trump lost his credibility almost as soon as he took office in 2016. Doctors have generally been considered credible forever.
Today, not those attending Trump for Covid-19. They refuse to provide Trump’s recent medical records.
Amazing how Trump contaminates everyone he comes in contact with! And I do not mean solely coronavirus wise.
Another doctor visit at noon.
Enjoy your day!
