  1. Dennis Quaid and CeCe Winans have involved themselves in a misuse of taxpayer dollars to spin Trump's failure on the virus. Dennis Quaid doesn't surprise me, but CeCe Winans should really be ashamed. The black community has been hit especially hard and she's going to use her influence to help with some trick like this.

    The health department is moving quickly on a highly unusual advertising campaign to "defeat despair" about the coronavirus, a $300 million-plus effort that was shaped by a political appointee close to President Donald Trump and executed in part by close allies of the official, using taxpayer funds.

    The ad blitz, described in some budget documents as the "Covid-19 immediate surge public advertising and awareness campaign," is expected to lean heavily on video interviews between administration officials and celebrities, who will discuss aspects of the coronavirus outbreak and address the Trump administration's response to the crisis, according to six individuals with knowledge of the campaign who described its workings to POLITICO.

    Senior administration officials have already recorded interviews with celebrities like actor Dennis Quaid and singer CeCe Winans, and the Health and Human Services Department also has pursued television host Dr. Mehmet Oz and musician Garth Brooks for roles in the campaign.

    Once Trump gets that extra vote on the Supreme Court, he can do whatever he wants.

    There's a lot the court will do, but there is only so far that they will go. A huge defeat is not going to be overturned.

    Yeah, but the "ifs" are the kicker. Per reports, Arizona and Florida are inexplicably tightening. We need a tsunami. That will be the ONLY way to avoid the GOP fascist takeover.

    There have been some outliers, but for the most part I think there is an underestimation of Biden in polling at the state level. Plus some pollsters have created more strict likely voter screens after 2016.

  3. If the election ends up looking something like Florida and Biden wins the electoral college narrowly then I could see Trump maybe pulling off a coup like Bush did. But if Biden is winning decisively and gets over 300 electoral votes then the court is not going to intervene.

  4. The goal now has to be to defeat Trump in a landslide or at least decisively. Despite what happens with the court it would be huge setback for Republicans to lose the Presidency and the Senate in a realigning election. Alito and Thomas are not that young so they could retire within the next ten or so years, so it is important to pick up Senate seats and lay the ground work for maintaining the presidency just in case those seats become vacant. This is a long game and Democrats have to learn how to play it.

  5. The gauntlet will be thrown down if this appointment is jammed through and the court will be expanded if Biden wins the presidency and Democrats win the Senate. The filibuster will be gone and DC and Puerto Rico will be admitted to the union.

  6. With outright white supremacists in this administration this story is probably true. Stephen Miller would most certainly push for something like this. All the anti-immigration sentiment was bound to go in such a direction. We have to turnout to vote, because human rights are one of the many things at stake.

  7. Jealousy makes people insane. The soaps really should borrow this. Can you imagine a recurring psycho character screaming at a look-a-like of their nemesis?

    Trump's disdain for Obama was so extreme that he took his fixation a step further, according to Cohen: Trump hired a "Faux-Bama" to participate in a video in which Trump "ritualistically belittled the first black president and then fired him."
    Cohen's book, "Disloyal: A Memoir," doesn't name the man who was allegedly hired to play Obama or provide a specific date for the incident, but it does include a photograph of Trump sitting behind a desk, facing a Black man wearing a suit with an American flag pin affixed to the lapel. On Trump's desk are two books, one displaying Obama's name in large letters.

    1970s Y&R had the Chancellors, Lance Prentiss, Prentiss Industries; all those preceded Dallas. Yes, we don't picture Wisconsin as home to multinational conglomerates and a cosmetics company in the vein of Clinique, Elizabeth Arden, Estee Lauder. Then again, would anyone watch a daytime drama set in Wisconsin with rival families in the business of artisan cheese or gourmet sausage or craft beer? Probably not 🤣

    I'll admit that I don't know much about early Y&R so I wasn't aware of those story elements. Cheese and sausage might not work, but beer probably would. Falcon Crest managed to make wine work, but then again wine making is associated with wealthier people and vineyards are a good scenic backdrop.

  9. Much of the business elements and wealth on daytime soaps was copied from primetime soaps. There was some wealth on soap operas before Dallas and Dynasty, but daytime soap operas originally revolved around working to middle class characters. In fact many of the small town settings do not fit with corporations and wealth. B&B is the only soap with a setting that matches with wealth and business machinations.

    Actor Chadwick Boseman, who played Black icons Jackie Robinson and James Brown before finding fame as the regal Black Panther in the Marvel cinematic universe, died Friday of cancer, his representative said. He was 43.

    Boseman died at his home in the Los Angeles area with his wife and family by his side, his publicist Nicki Fioravante told The Associated Press.

    Someone else the media is fawning over, and telling us is even better than Obama. They love to push the minority Republican storyline at any cost. This man is, like his bankroller McConnell, so soulless that he chose to inflict pain on the people who were mourning and trying to get justice for Taylor by releasing engagement photos with his fiancee - a big, happy, white family, grinning at the camera to remind them who will always win out. Absolutely depraved. This is the modern GOP.

    Releasing those pictures seemed calculated to me. As if he was trying to reaffirm his commitment to maintaining the establishment. But he had no problem using Breonna's name to score some sort of cheap political points to look reasonable to the public.
