The US unemployment rate has never been this high going into an election, despite the LARGEST stimulus package in US history, the CARES Act (10% of US GDP). Millions more stand to lose their healthcare if ACA/Obamacare is struck down.
Millions more without jobs, healthcare than when Obama left office, but also lots of time on their hand to contemplate the state of affairs. Voters realizing that a stock market driven by California based tech giants isn’t the ultimate metric for direction of country under Trump.
Trump has the most job losses on record in the first 44 months of his presidency — proof that many jobs created under him were low paying or non-essential and dispensable for employers. Many such jobs also relied on tourism booming in places like California, New York, Florida.
Often not disclosed by those wanting to strike down Obamacare: Republican-led effort to repeal the ACA includes a spending cut — combined impact would be loss of 1.2 million jobs (many in healthcare), affecting job growth in every state in the midst of a pandemic.

In 2015, Ralph Baric, infectious-disease researcher at UNC Chapel Hill published a study on his efforts to engineer a virus with surface protein of SHC014 coronavirus, found in horseshoe bats in China, backbone of one that causes human-like SARS in mice. the-scientist.com/news-opinion/l… Image
2. That same researcher, Ralph Baric is warning that SADS-CoV, a recent strain of coronavirus thought to have come from bats and which has been threatening the livestock industry, pigs especially, could jump to humans. So hold on to your masks and gloves. sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/… Image
3. Reducing dietary dependence on pigs may be key to avoiding another devastating pandemic, but the US pork lobby spends millions of dollars to influence lawmakers, including on legislation that streamlines gene-editing in pigs. reuters.com/article/us-usa…

How much longer before their COVID-19 infection charade is exposed?
For the first time, the COVID-19 positivity rate began to edge up over 5 in Florida, but the Republican Governor’s office now says with Florida in Phase 3 of the reopening, it’s considering scaling back the frequency of its reporting 🤦🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

baynews9.com/fl/tampa/news/…
Florida ranks fourth in the nation in COVID-19 deaths per capita over the last month, but slowing down reporting of infections and deaths isn’t going to make the problem go away, though it might be convenient politically until the elections to do so.

Between them, Trump and Kushner, POTUS and shadow POTUS, have more than $2 billion in debt, including to foreign sources. forbes.com/sites/danalexa…
Jared Kushner made a disastrous investment in 666 5th Ave in NYC when his dad was in prison (for witness tampering related to an internal Kushner family dispute) — that property got a $1 billion bailout from Qatar-backed company in 2018.
Treasury Secretary Mnuchin reported between $5,438,693 – $31,303,649 in income on his public financial disclosure report for 2019. A mysterious $25 – $50 million debt that a trust in his brother’s name owed Mnuchin was paid off at some point in 2019. citizensforethics.org/reports-invest…

US and Europe combined reported over ****2000 COVID-19 deaths yesterday**** even as former New York City mayor and Trump adviser and personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed “People don't die of this disease anymore."
2. In the past five months, per capita deaths in U.S., both from COVID-19 and other causes, have been far greater than in 18 other high-income countries. Overall deaths in US are more than 85% higher than in places such as Germany, Israel and Denmark. npr.org/sections/healt…
3. Even looking just at confirmed COVID-19 deaths, the number of people dying in US since May 10 — after adjusting for population size — is on average 50% higher than every other country in the study.

The rate of COVID-19 deaths since June 7:

USA 🇺🇸: 27.2
Italy 🇮🇹: 3.1

In October 2016, days before the presidential election, Trump’s son-in-law’s family business, Kushner Cos., piled $370 million of loans onto a Times Square building, refinancing most of it from Deutsche Bank, defaulting on a chunk of the debt in March. bloomberg.com/graphics/2019-…
The Kushners’ Times Square property has often run at a loss after accounting for loan payments, according to data compiled from disclosures to investors. Meanwhile, Kushner Cos. allocated some of the loan to pay itself $59 million (!), according to public filings.
While public attention has focused on Trump’s debts, shadow POTUS Jared Kushner and his family business have a debt load several times larger than the debt declared by the “official” POTUS.

This is the headline Trump wanted to engineer all along with his coronavirus stunt: “I’m immune and Joe Biden isn’t. I took one for the American public and discovered a bridge to the vaccine.”

No one has seen a certified copy of his positive test or any vitals.
Will people buy that he was infected+cured — will that swing votes in his favor? Possibly. This is why reporters should ask White House to share his positive test and it has to be independently vetted otherwise it’s just his and Conley’s word that he has triumphed over COVID-19.
While reporters are demanding to see Trump’s negative test, equally important to demand his positive test be examined by independent experts — because if he wasn’t infected and staged this to engineer his “I’m immune” headline, that’s a much bigger story: how did he pull it off?
