  2. They’re nitpicking.

    First the deaths….

    ——–

    Because a mere 0.01% of 1% of cases are children. 342 cases of the 4.3 million cases in the US are children. That’s what most folks might say was “almost immune.”

    “Health Department-Reported Cases of Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C) in the United States ​

    Since mid-May 2020, CDC has been tracking reports of multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C), a rare but serious condition associated with COVID-19. MIS-C is a new syndrome, and many questions remain about why some children develop it after a COVID-19 illness or contact with someone with COVID-19, while others do not.

    As of 7/15/2020, CDC has received reports of 342 cases and 6 deaths in 37 jurisdictions.

    Most cases are in children between the ages of 1 and 14 years, with an average age of 8 years.
    Cases have occurred in children from <1 year old to 20 years old.

    About 70% of reported cases have occurred in children who are Hispanic/Latino (120 cases) or Non-Hispanic Black (104 cases).

    96% of cases (329) tested positive for SARS CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. The remaining 4% were around someone with COVID-19.

    Most children developed MIS-C 2-4 weeks after infection with SARS-CoV-2.

    Slightly more than half (55%) of reported cases were male."

    “Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) ripped into the Department of Justice and FBI for the FISA application abuses that were done during Crossfire Hurricane, which was an investigation into alleged links between then-candidate Donald Trump’s campaign with Russian agents.

    Former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates testified to the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that she would not have signed off on the FISA applications if she had known they did not meet the required standards.

    “I seem to detect a pattern here. Ms. Yates, she testifies she had no idea what her deputy was doing as he facilitates contact between political party opposition research and the FBI. She has no idea that these applications that signed materially mislead a federal court, just as [Rod] Rosenstein said he had no idea. Nobody appears to know anything in this government and yet somehow a federal court was deliberately and systemically misled so severely that they now say they can’t trust anything the FBI did. If this does not call for a cleaning of house at DOJ and the FBI, I don’t know what is,” Hawley said.

    Prior to taking a five-minute break after Hawley had finished with his time, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) voiced her opposition to his comments, saying they were “inflammatory.” Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said he agreed with Hawley’s remarks.”

    “NYPD asks civilian staff to volunteer for de Blasio’s COVID-19 NYC checkpoints”

    “The NYPD is asking for volunteers from its civilian staff to enforce the state’s quarantine order for travelers, The Post has learned.

    A memo sent out to NYPD members less than an hour before Mayor Bill de Blasio announced he was setting up checkpoints to enter New York City, said the off-duty “volunteers will be assigned to Penn Station or Port Authority Bus Terminal.”

    The civilian members of the NYPD who volunteer will be charged with collecting forms from out-of-state travelers and “reminding” them of the mandatory 14-day self-quarantine.”

    “Report: Trump Campaign and RNC Registering More New Voters than Democrats in Battleground States

    “Republicans have lessened the margin by 133,000 registered voters in Pennsylvania and 87,000 voters in Florida.”

    “According to a report in Axios, the Trump Campaign and the RNC have registered 100,000 new voters in battleground states Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Florida

    From Axios:”

    —-

    “Republicans have lessened the margin by 133,000 registered voters in Pennsylvania and 87,000 voters in Florida.

    Republicans have also chipped away at Democrats’ advantage in the tossup state of North Carolina — gaining a net 216,410 voters since Election Day 2016.

    Meanwhile in Arizona and Iowa, Trump Victory has managed to slow voter registration momentum behind Democrats.

    In Iowa, the number of registered Democratic voters surpassed Republicans in March, but Republicans recently took back the advantage. Democrats had been outpacing Republicans in
    Arizona as well — but since April, Republicans have overtaken them.

    File this under “Things to remember when reading Trump doom and gloom headlines.””

  8. How can a “traveler” have a 14 day quarantine? Most people who go to New York are done and out next day.

    If I lived in Seattle or Portland, I would find a way out as quickly as I could. I can imaging the real estate market is in turmoil in those cities.

  9. Another red flag in the McCloskey case….

    Even the police don’t back the Soros plant DA.

    https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2020/08/05/refused-to-sign-prosecution-docs/

    “The prosecution of the McCloskeys is, perhaps, one of the biggest travesties of justice in recent months. While protests continue following the death of George Floyd, many seem to forget that the officers responsible have been fired and are being prosecuted. Meanwhile, a couple who squared off against an angry mob that had already vandalized their property in order to gain access to it is somehow the targets of prosecution themselves.

    And yet, it seems that despite the prosecutor’s deeply-driven desire to drag the couple to court, it wasn’t the slam dunk she might have tried to present to the media.

    New information has surfaced revealing a schism between St. Louis police and Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner regarding her attempt to prosecute Mark and Patricia McCloskey after they pointed firearms at armed property invaders on June 28.

    According to Christine Byers, of KSDK, TV 5:

    The lead St. Louis police detective investigating the McCloskey case refused to sign at least two versions of court documents prosecutors drafted, according to a review of those documents…

    Yet Gardner’s office – specifically, Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley — applied pressure.

    The documents obtained by 5 On Your Side include an email Gardner’s Assistant Circuit Attorney Chris Hinckley sent to the lead investigator on the case, Sgt. Curtis Burgdorf. Hinckley emailed police the day before the McCloskeys were served with a search warrant, stating it needed to happen ‘now.’

    Couple this with the fact that Hinckley ordered Patricia McCloskey’s gun to be made functional and the case looks pretty shaky. I can’t help but think that this is, ultimately, going to work against the prosecution. Making the weapon functional is, arguably, evidence tampering and could well blow up in the prosecution’s face.

    Especially since our legal standard for criminal cases is that the prosecution has to prove their case. That means Hinckley needs to prove the weapon was functional at the time of the incident. I don’t think he can.”

  10. I hear ya’ Chas.

    I’ve been asking that question for weeks. I visit NJ twice a week. Do I quarantine before I go In? When I get there? Or after I leave? Given their recent spike in cases, who knows….. But I refuse to even care if I’m breaking with the Govs directives. I have a constitutional right to worship. Churches are re-opened, so I’m going, regardless of what some bureaucrat says….

  11. NJ isn’t on the NYC list, and neither is CT. I find it interesting Massachusetts and Rhode Island are. RI, in particular, didn’t want NYC dwellers to shelter in place at their beach houses and were checking license plates coming into the state early in the pandemic.

    My friend currently with her ailing mother in PA was leery about going 10 days ago because she knew she would be quarantined for 2 weeks owing to travel from CA. She wondered how she could help her mother if she couldn’t leave the house.

    Meanwhile, relatives from LA had to drive to CO to pick up their child’s belongings from college. They were afraid about driving through “the wild west of Utah” on their way because it seemed too cavalier about mask wearing, etc.

    The world is a strange place.

  12. Nitpicking… the economist graph in your first post is out of date, the US passed France in deaths per 1m about a week ago.

    My fear for schools reopening is not only for the kids — but for the adults in the building. Schools act as community hubs and just to easy for a virus to transfer in schools (as every February demonstrates).

    Silicon Valley is not bias to anything except money. Social media platforms fear lawsuits and if their platform is cited in a wrongful death case, they lose money. The actions of Zuckerburg suggests a Republican affiliation for Facebook if anything. Twitter seems far more receptive to complaints. Accounts are disciplined according to an algorithm or by complaints. Sometimes the algorithm produces weird results — Youtube historians often use the older German Empire flags instead of Nazi flags when creating WWII military battlefield maps in order to avoid the algorithm.

    So Democrats are still ahead in voter registrations in Penn and Florida? And essentially tied in Arizona and Iowa? What percentage of registered voters are independent? and which way do they lean? Polls indicate independents swing Democratic. Biden has a 212 to 91 head start.

    Canada has a 14 day quarantine for visitors and returning Canadians (the reason I can’t attend my neice’s wedding in October) . Its the norm throughout the world and the reason I didn’t have an European holiday. I’ve had two friends return from Michigan and Texas. Both rented a cottage for two weeks and ordered in groceries. Both said they received text messages from the gov’t.. Although a bit of the honour system is implied here, I’m sure the gov’t could use phone data to check. Two Americans were recently fined $1000 each for not following quarantine rules — they were wandering around town shopping and the police received a complaint.

  13. And the total of deaths has what to do with the topic, the death of children, which has been minuscule compared to the total? Oh that’s right, nothing.

    0.01% of 1% Under a dozen total for kids, the topic being discussed. But nice try with the “Squirrel!” thing….

    Plus we already know the numbers are bogus what with positives for people never tested, antibody cases counted as new C-19’s, and a variety of other fuzzy math used by Dems and the media.

    The only argument there is for not sending kids back is teachers health, and there are ways to safely address that.
