    Some (very few, more extreme) Sanders supporters think the country is already beyond repair, and only mass genocide and a new beginning based on a few socialist cavemen will do.

    There are people in parts of NJ that refuse to Social Distance. Governor Murphy is probably getting to the point where he's tempted to call on the NJ National Guard.

    Can’t believe I have to say this at all, let alone for the second time. But here we are.

    NO CORONA PARTIES. They’re illegal, dangerous, and stupid.

    We will crash your party. You will pay a big fine. And we will name & shame you until EVERYONE gets this message into their heads.

    Trump just said he is considering “ordering” a two-week “enforceable quarantine” of NY, NJ and CT to “restrict travel” from those states “because they are having problems down in Florida with New Yorkers going down & we don’t want that.“ Folks, you can’t make this stuff up.

    So NY, NJ, &/or CT are to blame if FL has an outbreak of the COVID - particularly in any of the heavily populated retirement communities of the most vulnerable elderly - and NOT because DeSantis left the beaches, hotels, & bars open for the college kids on Spring Break? Got it.

    Exactly.

    It's like folks took a look at how basketball players wound up with the virus, and said "Nope. I should be able to take part in a roughly equivalent activity, and everything should work itself out just fine."

    As opposed to doing what?

    Just letting folks travel from a know center of transmission?

    Medical Expert Who Corrects Trump Is Now a Target of the Far Right

    At a White House briefing on the coronavirus on March 20, President Trump called the State Department the “Deep State Department.” Behind him, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, dropped his head and rubbed his forehead.

    Some thought Dr. Fauci was slighting the president, leading to a vitriolic online reaction. On Twitter and Facebook, a post that falsely claimed he was part of a secret cabal who opposed Mr. Trump was soon shared thousands of times, reaching roughly 1.5 million people.

    A week later, Dr. Fauci — the administration’s most outspoken advocate of emergency measures to fight the coronavirus outbreak — has become the target of an online conspiracy theory that he is mobilizing to undermine the president.

    That fanciful claim has spread across social media, fanned by a right-wing chorus of Mr. Trump’s supporters, even as Dr. Fauci has won a public following for his willingness to contradict the president and correct falsehoods and overly rosy pronouncements about containing the virus.

    I'm really hoping he was trying to suggest something different.

    Yeah it was definitely me advocating for genocide in order to contain the virus and not, you know, just pointing out the hypocrisy of you trying to act like enforcing a quarantine for public health purposes would lead to some outrageous human rights violation, when far worse violations are happening all the time already and people like you don't see seem to be much bothered by it.

    WTH?

    BREAKING: The Bureau of Indian Affairs today told the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe that the Secretary of the Interior has ordered that their reservation be disestablished and their land be taken out of trust.
    Twitter Thread Link

    Message from the Chairman: We Will Take Action to Prevent the Loss of Our Land

    At 4:00 pm today -- on the very day that the United States has reached a record 100,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and our Tribe is desperately struggling with responding to this devastating pandemic -- the Bureau of Indian Affairs informed me that the Secretary of the Interior has ordered that our reservation be disestablished and that our land be taken out of trust. Not since the termination era of the mid-twentieth century has a Secretary taken action to disestablish a reservation.

    Today's action was cruel and it was unnecessary. The Secretary is under no court order to take our land out of trust. He is fully aware that litigation to uphold our status as a tribe eligible for the benefits of the Indian Reorganization Act is ongoing.

    It begs the question, what is driving our federal trustee's crusade against our reservation?

    Regardless of the answer, we the People of the First Light have lived here since before there was a Secretary of the Interior, since before there was a State of Massachusetts, since before the Pilgrims arrived 400 years ago. We have survived, we will continue to survive. These are our lands, these are the lands of our ancestors, and these will be the lands of our grandchildren. This Administration has come and it will go. But we will be here, always. And we will not rest until we are treated equally with other federally recognized tribes and the status of our reservation is confirmed.

    I will continue to provide updates on this important issue in the coming days as we take action to prevent the loss of our trust status.
