Dr. Rick Bright's Whistleblower Complaint On Trump's F*cked HHS Coronavirus Response Will Leave You SHOOK
Seriously one of the most horrifying things we have ever read. Seriously.
A couple weeks ago, Donald Trump's Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) fired Dr. Rick Bright — who was America's very qualified chief of vaccines and a pandemic expert — from his job, by shunting him over to a lesser job at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Until that demotion, he had been director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) and deputy assistant secretary for preparedness and response at HHS. He was fired, according to his statement, because he (a scientist expert) refused to go along with the administration's obsession with promoting Trump's favorite malaria drug, Hydroxybonercream 3000, as the miracle cure for the novel coronavirus.
Specifically, he wrote that "contrary to misguided directives, I limited the broad use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, promoted by the Administration as a panacea but which clearly lack scientific merit," because Fox News and Rudy Giuliani and President Mouth Lies wouldn't stop lying to the American people about it.
According to Bright's lawyer Debra Katz, when they offered him his cool "new job," which he has not started and may not even technically exist, they were like, "Oh, you are just a victim of your own success! Oh boy, we have a special mission for you!" They lied to Bright and told him his transfer was part of a "bold new plan" to defeat the coronavirus, one that apparently did not include him standing in the way of Trump throat-cramming your Nana with Hydroxybonercream 3000. Then they started lying about him, smearing him like a common Marie Yovanovitch, because everything in Trumpworld is the same all the time.
Now Dr. Bright has filed an official whistleblower complaint. It is ... fuck.
You thought there was incompetence on Jared Kushner's Power Ranger Volunteer Strike Force for PPE Procurement? Hahahahahaha, well, check out what's happening at HHS, according to Rick Bright.
If it's a sacrament, shouldn't it be free?
Back in March, Republican Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt sued televangelist Jim Bakker and Morningside Church Productions, Inc., for claiming on air that the colloidal silver products he was selling on his website could cure a variety of ailments, including COVID-19 and HIV. Now, Bakker is asking a judge to dismiss that lawsuit, saying that not allowing him to sell you poison is a violation of his First Amendment rights and his religious freedom. In fact, Bakker claims that any product he sells on his television show is "divinely inspired" and therefore protected.
(To be fair, Bakker did once claim that God sent him a message to let him know that "things are happening" and people should therefore buy a bunch of his Mexican Fiesta food buckets. Oh, to be a fly on the wall during the divine "Mexican Fiesta food buckets" convo.)
Bakker is being represented by former Democratic Missouri governor Jay Nixon, who claims Bakker is being persecuted for being a Christian, as is wont to happen in a country where 71 percent of the population identifies as Christian.
Lotta blood on that Fox News money these days.
Is your Nana starting to get pretty skeptical of all these stay-at-home orders, because she watches Fox News and they're telling her something nefarious and liberal is afoot, but for the most part Nana is still behaving? She's wearing a mask, she's keeping her distance, and though she's just pretty sure the holy economy must be restarted, she generally still accepts that coronavirus exists?
Laura Ingraham is here to fix that! It would seem she would like to truly LIBERATE11!!11! your Nana from the shackles of even pretending to acknowledge there is a pandemic going on (and also this mortal coil). And she wants to do it one inch from your Nana's mouth.
In a video clip from Monday night's Laura Ingraham Program About Whiteness And Power that Fox News has entitled "The 'experts' strike again," Ingraham explained that social distancing is a fake thing that has never even been studied, so come over here and let her spit on you a whole bunch, it's no big deal, all the geriatric Fox News viewers are doing it.
Mike Pompeo Calls Coronavirus Naturally Occurring Manmade Bioweapon Released Accidentally On Purpose. AOT,K!
If nothing is true, then nothing is a lie!
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo peeked his little head out from between the Fuhrer's butt cheeks yesterday for a little face time with ABC's Martha Raddatz. And while he managed not to lose his shit and start screaming curses this time, he did wind up backed into a corner insisting that two diametrically opposed things were both true, because RACISM. In the secretary's defense, Raddatz tricked him by asking him to reconcile President Trump's lunatic rantings with actual facts. Which is no fair!
See, the Trump campaign has recently decided to throw caution to the wind and go Full Yellow Peril. And although Trump is the one who invited Xi Jinping to his house for chocolate cake and actually praised China for doing such a bang up job containing the virus, the current story line is that China is our mortal enemy and Joe Biden is secretly smelling Xi's hair, or ... well, they're still working the kinks out.
The point is Donald Trump is very hot to fan the flames of conspiracy about China deliberately creating coronavirus as a bioweapon to be released on the world, which means that the "heat seeking missile for Trump's ass" who runs the State Department must dutifully parrot this nonsense as if it's true. Even though, it pretty clearly isn't.
