Eleven Secret Service Agents Test Positive For COVID-19 And Fears Of It Spreading Through The White House Are Mounting
Business Insider ^ | 5-10-2020 | Sophia Ankel

Posted on 5/10/2020, 7:37:38 AM by blam

Eleven members of the US Secret Service have tested positive for the coronavirus as of Thursday evening, according to Yahoo News.

Documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seen by Yahoo News, revealed that the agency has 11 active coronavirus cases and an additional 60 employees who are reportedly self-quarantining. On top of this, another 23 members have already recovered from COVID-19, the diseases caused by the coronavirus.

It is not known whether the employees who tested positive for the coronavirus worked at the White House or if they had recent close contact with President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

Both Trump and Pence get tested for the disease regularly but have not tested positive so far. However, Trump said this week that he would switch from having weekly to daily tests following the new cases, according to The Hill.

Justin Whelan, a spokesperson for the Secret Service told Yahoo News that the agency is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

“To protect the privacy of our employee’s health information and for operational security, the Secret Service is not releasing how many of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19, nor how many of its employees were, or currently are, quarantined,” Whelan added.

The news comes as President Donald Trump revealed on Friday that Mike Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus. Miller, who is the wife of Stephen Miller — Trump’s senior adviser, and primary speechwriter — confirmed her diagnosis with NBC News, adding that she was asymptomatic.

Ivanka Trump’s personal assistant has also tested positive for the coronavirus, CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reported.

Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s Press Secretary, Tests Positive For Coronavirus
Deadline ^ | May 8, 2020 | Ted Johnson

Posted on 5/8/2020, 1:52:10 PM by MinorityRepublican

President Donald Trump said that Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, tested positive for coronavirus.

Miller is married to Stephen Miller, one of Trump’s top advisers.

Earlier, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed on Friday that a member of Pence’s staff tested positive for coronavirus, but she did not identify who it was.

“There is a member of the vice president’s team who is positive for coroanvirus,” McEnany said. “We have put in place the guidelines that our experts have put forward to keep this building safe.”

Many more reporters were wearing face masks in the briefing room, a day after it was revealed that one of President Donald Trump’s personal valets tested positive for the virus. Trump and Pence took subsequent tests that came out negative, the White House said. On a call to Fox & Friends on Friday, Trump said that he was in the same room with the valet on Tuesday but does not recall any direct contact with the staffer, who is a member of the U.S. Navy.

Today in people who made a difference in Tommy’s life

Ray Hennig died this week. You probably didn’t know him, but many Texas musicians did.

His original Heart Of Texas music store was in Waco, and he changed everything.

Long before the Austin store even existed, he put most of the other Waco instrument dealers out of business. How? By treating us (musicians) like people, instead of marks to cough up cash.
He allowed and encouraged us to hang out at HOT music, whether we were there to buy something or not.
At Holtze or Buzze music, if you asked to try a guitar or amp and didn’t look like you had the funds on you, you got the stinkeye.
At HOT, if you asked, Ray would plug it in for you and tell you to go to town and crank it up.
THIS breeds respect from your potential customers, and turns them into lifetime customers.
Ray even put recliners and sofas in the display room so that the local musicians who often met there could have a place to sit.
Also, his repair tech J.D. Bennet (real name: Deitz Gengelbach) went on to become a head amplifier designer at Crown Amplification, then Peavey.

Rest easy, Ray.  You had the BEST run.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – fit hits the shan edition

My goodness, constant readers – Freeperville is a mess just now.

Let’s start with the worst of it – the endless Freepathon isn’t doing very well for some reason :

Woo hoo!! And our 2nd quarter 2020 FReepathon roars back to life!! [Thread XIX]
Click here to donate via our new secure link: https://freerepublic.com/donate/ ^ | by Jim Robinson

Posted on 4/19/2020, 11:21:20 AM by Jim Robinson

Prayers up for all the families suffering from the impact of this virus. And we’re still praying that the spread starts fading with the warmer Spring weather and that an effective treatment and vaccine are developed before the next flu season starts. And we pray that our people are allowed to go back to work very soon and that our economy comes roaring back.

Meanwhile, we may be hurt and slowed down somewhat, but we have faith in the long-run that “what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.”

God willing, America will survive and we will survive and we know our efforts will always be needed. The fight for freedom is never ending. We must remain ever vigilant, especially during these dire times. The haters of God and His gift of Liberty never rest. They never let a crisis go to waste.

Sounds like you’re having a little crisis of your own there, Jimbo.

Jim Rob likes to boost the Freepathon in its waning hours by posting the subscriptions all at once as if they were new rubes  donations, and then (allegedly) just make shit up about late donations at the end to claim victory.

So, all he should have to do to rope in more suckers is post some fake news about donations to show that he’s ALMOST THERE, and prompt readers to part with some real money so he can get the grift going again. Right?

However – I think he knows that if he does a “money is pouring in” post, Freepers who suddenly find themselves in financial straits due to the COVID-19 hoax will just sit on their pocketbooks, secure in the belief that other Freepers are carrying their load.

Let’s see how many replies so far to the “hurt and slowed down” bleg.

Hmm.

Zero.

Interesting.

Freepathon

Woo Hoo indeed.

You may have to sell that RV, Jimbo.

Georgia high school seniors expelled after posting racist viral video to social media
WSAV TV ^ | April 18, 2020 | WSAV Staff

Posted on 4/19/2020, 7:27:45 AM by buckalfa

CARROLLTON, Ga. (WSAV) – Two Georgia high school seniors have been expelled and will reportedly not graduate after posting a racist video on social media.

Two seniors at Carrollton High School posted the video on TikTok on Thursday, where it quickly went viral and spread across other social media platforms. The video shows the two students using the n-word and saying derogatory things about African Americans.

The students, one boy and one girl, can be seen in a bathroom mimicking a cooking show using labeled cups of water.

“First, we have ‘black’,” the girl can be heard saying, as the boy pours a cup of water in the sink. “Next, we have ‘don’t have a dad’.”

The two then pour cups of water labeled “Eat watermelon and fried chicken”, “Rob people”, and “Go to jail” into the sink, and skip pouring a cup labeled “Make good choices.”

The students were quickly identified, and Carrollton City School District Superintendent Dr. Mark Albertus issued a statement Thursday night.

“Please know this video is being addressed immediately and any student involved in the production of this video will face serious consequences,” Albertus said.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – shark has jumped the fox edition

Kinda dull over in Freeperville this last week, as the Freepers sullenly realize that The Darnold can’t make that absurd squeeze-box motion with hands and make this COVID-19 thing evaporate.

Hell, he even called a virus “genius”. Guess he was trying to Kim Jung Un it into submission.

Compared to him, I guess a microscopic parasite is a genius.

That, and doorknobs.

So – let’s repair to the always-soothing FOX “news” polling, shall we?

Fox News Poll: Far More Americans Approve Of Fauci’s Handling Of Coronavirus Than Trump’s
Daily Caller ^ | 04/10/20 | Justin Caruso

Posted on 4/10/2020, 2:19:06 PM by Enlightened1

Far more Americans approve of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s handling of coronavirus than President Donald Trump’s, according to a Fox News poll published Thursday.

Fifty-one percent of people polled approve of Trump’s response to coronavirus, while 77% percent of respondents approve of Fauci’s.

Trump’s approval rating hit 49%, up two points since February. Fauci’s approval has also declined 3% since last month.

Vice President Pence’s approval ratings are slightly higher than Trump’s in the Fox poll, with 52% of Americans approving of his response, down from 55% in March.

Trump’s approval rating numbers took a dip in March as coronavirus continued to spread. But recent polling for the president has been trending upwards. (RELATED: Latest Harris Poll Has Some Good News For President Trump On Coronavirus Response)

Fox News has jumped the shark.

To: Enlightened1

 

fauci’s not handling anything. All he has to do is go behind a microphone and tell us what he told us before. TRUMP has the job of managing the vast resources of the federal government. Who has the harder job?

Obviously, fauci can’t be criticized for saying doctor things, but TRUMP IS criticized for everything he says and does, or doesn’t say or doesn’t do.

So fox news can go fox itself.

To: Enlightened1 

No surprise. Most American’s are braindead and have been told for weeks now that Fauci is an expert in his field.

Maybe because he IS??

Democrats will love him because he is passively against Trump, and apparently a good number of Republicans like him too, including many on here. Fauci is demonstrably terrible at his job, he’s been in it for 36 years and he’s gotten this and several other pandemics wrong. His popularity makes it hard for Trump to fire him. A “heroic” retirement in a few months would be best.

Fox Business Benches Trish Regan After Outcry Over Coronavirus Comments
nytimes ^ | 3/13/2020 | Michael M. Grynbaum

Posted on 3/14/2020, 7:26:03 PM by bitt

The host of “Trish Regan Primetime” told viewers this week that concerns about the coronavirus were “yet another attempt to impeach the president.”

The Fox Business anchor Trish Regan, whose on-air dismissal of the coronavirus as “another attempt to impeach the president” left her cable network facing a firestorm of criticism this week, has been removed from her prime-time slot for the foreseeable future, the network said on Friday.

Ms. Regan’s 8 p.m. program, “Trish Regan Primetime,” is “on hiatus until further notice,” Fox Business said in a statement. The network declined to say if Ms. Regan would continue to appear on its other programs, saying that its coverage plans for the coronavirus crisis remained in flux.

Fox Business attributed the move to “the demands of the evolving pandemic crisis coverage,” saying it was shifting resources toward daytime coverage of the pandemic and global markets. Both “Trish Regan Primetime” and its follow-up at 9, “Kennedy,” will be replaced by general-interest programs.

Today on Tommy T’s obsession with the moronovirus

The Darnold got asked a rather uncomfortable question the other day:

A month ago?  He was bragging on the shutdown.
Bragging.

Last month, responding to a question from a reporter about why he has consistently called for “enormous cuts to the CDC, the NIH, and the WHO,” Trump responded: “I’m a businessperson. I don’t like having thousands of people around when you don’t need them.

Oh? Does that go for the armed forces as well?  After all, for the most part, there are hundreds of thousands of people around when we don’t need them. Until, of course, we do.

Maybe you should disband the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines as well? And the fire departments? Lazing around playing cards and waiting for something to catch fire?

And the stock market? He’s loving it!

Surgery recovery’s taking longer then expected – a month more until I can bend over, pick up anything over five pounds, sit for more then 30 minutes, drive etc.

Hopefully I’ll be back embarrassing Freepers within four more weeks or so.

My night nurse, a wonderful Nigerian med student, was watching news with me while I was still in the hospital the day after my surgery. (He of course, is going to be at ground zero when the hospital starts filling up)

He asked me if I was worried about the COVID-19 epidemic. I replied not for myself so much as for others. He looked at The Darnold sputtering his lies and said “He’s insane”.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Shorter and Sweeter edition

OK, people – stepping up to the plate here while Adrastos recovers mentally from the horrible event that brought the Mardi Gras parade to a premature end….

I now present – THE SHORTEST THREAD IN THE HISTORY OF FREE REPUBLIC!

Finally – FINALLY – they found some health care fraud.

Former Michigan Health Care Consultant Pleads Guilty to Fraud and Tax Evasion Used Faked Credentials to Obtain More than $1.4 Million, and Did Not Pay Taxes
justice.gov ^ | February 18, 2020 | DOJ

Posted on 2/19/2020, 11:33:27 AM by ransomnote

A former health care consultant pleaded guilty today to mail fraud and tax evasion relating to her scheme to be employed under false pretenses as a highly paid health care consultant, announced Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Richard E. Zuckerman of the Justice Department’s Tax Division.

According to court documents and statements made in court, Sonja Emery, using several aliases including “Sonja Lee Robinson,” “Sonjalee Emery-Robinson,” and “Sonjalee Emery,” resided in Georgia, New Jersey, New York, and California.  From 2011 through 2018, Emery falsely represented her professional status, educational background, and work experience to secure and maintain highly paid consulting positions in the health-care industry. She falsely claimed to have a nursing diploma from a school she never attended.  She also falsely claimed to be a Registered Nurse licensed in New York, Georgia, Connecticut, and California and provided employers with licensure numbers that belonged to other people. In fact she never was a Registered Nurse.  Emery also falsely told employers she had a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, a Master of Health Administration, a Master in Business Administration, and a Doctor of Philosophy from Emory University and New York University, but Emery never attended those schools or received these degrees.

As a result of these lies, from 2012 through 2018, Emery secured high-level health-care positions.  She worked as a Senior Vice President for an Ann Arbor, Michigan healthcare consulting firm earning an annual salary of approximately $285,000; as a consultant for a community health system in Wisconsin earning approximately $267,000; and as a health care consultant for a Massachusetts company that paid her approximately $226,000.  From 2015 until her arrest in May of 2018, Emery worked as a senior executive for a county government health services agency in California that paid her a total of approximately $960,000.

During these years, Emery either did not file or late-filed tax returns, despite owing more than $400,000 in taxes.  She sought to avoid being detected by providing employers with different names and false social security numbers, by falsely instructing employers that she was “exempt” from taxes, and by supplying an employer with an identification number that did not belong to her.

U.S. District Judge Linda V. Parker scheduled sentencing for June 17, 2020.  At sentencing, Emery faces a statutory maximum sentence of 20 years in prison for mail fraud and five years in prison for tax evasion. Emery also faces a period of supervised release, restitution, and monetary penalties.

As for myself, due to my Neurosurgeon refusing to do my spinal surgery without an OK from my Cardiologist, and my Cardiologist not being able to schedule a nuclear stress test until after my scheduled surgery date of February 13th, my laminectomy/discectomy/foramina-whatever-ectomy, has now been rescheduled for March 6th.

A week after that, I should be back in the saddle (able to sit at my chair in front of the PC for more than 15 minutes) again. and looking forward to ploughing through the Freeperati backlog and picking only choicest juicy chunks of fresh Freeper ram’s bladder, emptied, steamed, flavored with sesame seeds whipped into a fondue and garnished with lark’s vomit.

New York Times: Bolton draft book manuscript says Trump tied Ukraine aid freeze to political investigations
CNN ^

Posted on 1/26/2020, 7:28:29 PM by janetjanet998

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump in August told his then-national security adviser John Bolton that he wanted to continue holding military aid to Ukraine until the country helped with investigations into Democrats — including former Vice President Joe Biden — the New York Times reported Sunday, citing multiple people’s descriptions of an unpublished draft manuscript by Bolton.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – STFU edition

A quickie this week.

My boss told me to shut up about Trump so I plan to wear RED all next week during Impeachment Trial.
1/19/2020 | sff

Posted on 1/19/2020, 1:10:25 PM by SoFloFreeper

I cannot go into details because I don’t want to harm the innocent parties involved, but here is the basic true story:

My workplace is exceedingly liberal. A few conservatives, but we’re outnumbered. I don’t hide my views, but I also don’t get in fights with others. Honestly.

Seven or eight months ago, maybe longer, I was told my comments offended people and could get me fired. I asked what the specific comments were, and no one could tell me. The response was basically “We all have heard you say things…”

A few days into the new year, I was again read the riot act, told that if I offend anyone else I will lose my job. One of the bosses (there were two) told me not to even talk about the weather or sports. Only work related words should be coming out of my mouth.

I told them I have been very careful about using any language that could be construed as offensive. I asked again for what exactly was my offense. No one could give me a quote.

So, I am doing my best to watch out. I am a good employee and have been that a long time.

What I think I’ll do this week is wear RED (not a hat of course LOL) during my work hours. The red will be in solidarity with MAGA. I will do my best to remain quiet.

*******

By the way, I’d appreciate your prayers. Feels sometimes like there are traps being set for me.I also think God may be teaching ME about humility. I need to honor my supervisor even when I think they’re putting unfairness upon me. Such a posture would show trust that my Creator is able to take care of my situation. I wouldn’t be relying on my own intellect or value, but on HIM.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – “long slow demise of FR” edition

Not much of a post this week, I’m afraid. Lower back nerve issues are intensifying, and after getting an MRI to determine what they’re going to have to cut out of my spine, I just found out my neurosurgeon is no longer in my insurance network. While I frantically try to find a new one, I’m trying to strike a balance between taking so much pain medication I can’t make coherent sentences (like I ever did, anyway), and shrieking like a demon at unpredictable moments and scaring the P-waddly-shit out of Barbara.

Turning over while asleep also produces interesting and startling results.

This is one issue of note in Freeperville however:

Just got a thread pulled and the reason the moderator stated was “the usual”. The posting was from The NY Post today about a woman who was having a seizure and got mauled to death by the family dog. Not sure why this isn’t news worthy or has to be censured. I made no comment just posted the artcle. Has FREERepublic also caught the snowflake disease where we cannot discuss bona fide news in a respectful manner so the conversation needs to be shutdown? I respect Free Republic is fully within its rights to shutdown or reject a posting for any reason but is this really how this should have been dealt with?

further evidence we’re witnessing the slow-slow quick death of Free Republic. FR offered a fresh perspective on American news in the 1990’s and 2000’s, and an abundance of articulate, well written conservative posters. Today it’s become a pit stop for self-promoting bloggers, and the remaining handful of old timers (moderators) who can’t grasp what’s happening among the right side of news portal websites. The Liberty Daily, Citizen Free Press, and Dan Bongino seem to be attracting lots of newer, younger supporters to their sites, but we see nothing like that at FR. The original posters frustration is just one cause of this, and asking the fewer and fewer that still come here for 90 thousand in donations every 90 days is another.

Oklahoma police officer gets a Starbucks cup labeled ‘Pig’
NY Post ^ | November 29, 2019 | 3:34am | Joe Tacopino

Posted on 11/29/2019, 7:31:53 AM by conservative98

A police officer in Oklahoma was dismayed when he bought a coffee at the local Starbucks on Thanksgiving and noticed the name on the label was “Pig.”

The chief of police the Kiefer, Okla. said one of his officers trekked to Starbucks to get some java for a dispatcher when he received the insulting label.

“What irks me is the absolute and total disrespect for a police officer who, instead of being home with family and enjoying a meal and a football game, is patrolling his little town,” Chief Johnny O’Mara said in a Facebook post that included an image of the “Pig” coffee cup.

Today on Tommy T’s obsession with NextDoor. com – barbarians at the gates edition

Well, people – since I’ve had about enough of Gladys Kravitz’s favourite site (NextDoor) and people who live in a town (Carrollton) that made the list of the safest cities in Texas  constantly complaining about “intruders”, so I decided to post the following in the Nob Hill NextDoor group :

ATTENTION! SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY!!!
Late last night (around 8:00) I noticed suspicious activity in my back alleyway. First, a probable coyote was walking along on the other side of my fenceline, obviously up to no good. If you ignore these vicious predators, they will form gangs and lurk on street corners.

Knowing this, I activated my Ring-a-ding-ding camera’s optional emergency alert system (connected to twin locomotive air horns) to frighten the probable coyote away. This worked, but less than a minute later, someone I didn’t recognize came sauntering down the alleyway calling out for his obvious fellow gang member, “Spot”.

Since the air horns need time to recharge from the air compressor, I called the Carrollton Police department. They took their own sweet time getting here, and approached the probable gang member just as the probable coyote came running to him and lept into his arms and either started eating or licking (lighting was bad) the gangster’s face.

The police started laughing – I assume at me, although I was safe in my fortified danger room monitoring this on the multiple monitors of my Ring-a-ding-ding system. I addressed them through the PA system speakers and demanded that both of these interlopers (obviously in league with each other) be either apprehended or put down immediately.

They replied that it was just a nearby neighbour out looking for his dog, and that Carrollton is one of the safest cities in Texas.

Obviously, the police have been infiltrated by the Deep State, and can no longer be trusted.

I’ll be redoubling my watch, and will be booby-trapping my back gate, garage door, and of course, my front door,

You can’t be too careful these days.

Sorry about no Freeperati post this week, but the lumbar radiculopathy thing has taken a turn for the worse, including a backwards fall off some porch steps. Nothing broken but my pride, but my contribution to the opioid epidemic has increased dramatically.

My contrast MRI is scheduled for Thursday, so hopefully the neurosurgeon will know which nerve roots to burn, and how deep, and do it bloody quick.

Also, “Best Of NextDoor” is now my fave Twitter destination.

And to close out – a real post from my NextDoor group :

Wait for it…..

This guy came by our house around 4:30 on Thursday. The guy was selling security systems. We have one of the city yard signs that warns solicitors about permits and to stay away, so my husband simply told the guy that he better read that sign, then closed the door.

Catastrophe narrowly averted!

Trump complains low-flow toilets are flush with problems
ABC News ^ | December 6, 2019 | ABC News

Posted on 12/7/2019, 9:24:13 AM by gattaca

…Trump said Friday that his administration is looking into relaxing water-saving regulations for toilets, sinks and showers, saying consumers end up using even more water by flushing multiple times and trying to get clean with low water streams.

“People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water,” Trump said while talking with business owners about what he said are ‘’common sense” steps to end overregulation. “The EPA is looking at that very strongly at my suggestion.”

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – Back and forth edition

Short one today, as recurring #^@#& back issues preclude sitting for very long.

First up – it’s good not to be da king!

Former White House counsel Don McGahn must obey subpoena to testify before Congress, judge rules
NBC News ^ | November 25, 2019 | Pete Williams

Posted on 11/25/2019, 5:15:37 PM by Coronal

WASHINGTON — A federal judge ruled late Monday that former White House counsel Don McGahn must obey a subpoena for his testimony issued by the House Judiciary Committee.

Federal District Court Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson said McGahn must appear before Congress but retains the ability to “invoke executive privilege where appropriate” during his appearance. The judge did not put her own ruling on hold, but the Trump administration will likely seek one to put the effect of her ruling on hold while it pursues an appeal.

“It is clear to this Court for the reasons explained above that, with respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist,” Jackson said in her ruling

(Inexplicably left out of the above excerpt by the poster, for some reason 🙂

Judge Jackson also explicitly said the president “does not have the power” to stop his aides from responding to subpoenas from Congress – adding that “presidents are not kings”.

The problem you have with that is, I am the one being trolled and we are posting anonymously so why wouldn’t someone simple(sic – I think, anyway) say “I have donated money to FR”?

TRUMP MADE UNEXPECTED HOSPITAL VISIT TO TEST FOR INTENTIONAL POISONING

Food tester was first rushed to hospital, and doctors believe there was exposure to time-delayed poison

An inside source says President Trump’s food taster became ill after ingesting an unnamed substance, which is why the president made a surprise hospital visit on Saturday.

In an official statement, the White House said President Trump visited the Walter Reed Military Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, for  a “quick exam and labs.”

The hospital visit was not listed on the president’s public schedule, according to media outlets which indicated that the visit was not a routine physical exam.

Additionally, the inside source said his food taster was rushed to the facility after becoming extremely ill.

Doctors and staff reportedly found the byproduct of a type of toxin that’s very hard to detect and has a time-delayed onset of symptoms.

The president was later taken to the same facility where a battery of tests were performed to assess whether he had ingested the same toxin.

There’s an ongoing investigation into the matter.

White House sources have confided to Alex Jones that there’s been other poisoning attempts against the president in the past. We’re going to break down this live on air while also analyzing other components of the Deep State coup.

Despite the fact that this news broke over the weekend, there’s hardly any coverage regarding the fact that the president made a very rare, unexpected visit to a medical center.

Historically, time-delayed poisons were popular with assassins due to their ability to get past food tasters and other chemical tests that are done on food before it’s eaten.

Powerful leaders were routinely drugged or poisoned throughout the ages.

The president isn’t showing any outward signs of being sick, but he was put though a battery of tests as a precaution.

Jim Rob used to zot chit chat conspiracy crap from Alex Jones the second anyone dared post such drivel.

He also used to ban Romney supporters – until Romney got the nomination, that is.

Not anymore. Times have changed.
