TRUMP DORAL CLOSURES & UPDATES

In light of recent developments with COVID-19 and in collaboration with Miami-Dade County’s mandate, the resort has temporarily ceased all operations.

The safety and well-being of our guests, residents and team members is paramount at Trump National Doral.

The suspension may last for up to 30 days and at this time we will not be confirming any reservations.

Hmmm . . . now tell me again why Trump wants to send people back to work, even while the virus is claiming more and more lives every day.

It couldn’t have anything to do with his failing hotels, could it?

Meanwhile, if he’s so concerned about the “well-being” of Americans, why has he done so little to help fight the disease, and why is he so opposed to giving money and health care to ordinary Americans?

Trump aides say he’s starting to lose his patience with Dr. Anthony Fauci

President Trump and senior White House advisers are starting to lose patience with Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, as he continues to publicly correct Trump when he makes false statements about the coronavirus, The New York Times reports.

We certainly don’t want Fauci to correct Trump’s endless false statements. He wouldn’t have time for anything else.

Trump suggests he might soon prioritize the economy over public health

The White House is apparently regretting letting medical experts handle a medical emergency.

As President Trump’s top coronavirus doctor Anthony Fauci let on in weekend interviews, he’s pleased Trump has actually listened to and taken his advice in fighting the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

But starting with a Sunday night tweet, Trump indicated he’s taking back the helm from Fauci as soon as the CDC’s recommended 15-day isolation period is over.

“We cannot let the cure be worse than the problem,” Trump tweeted, (copying what FOX News told him to say) alluding to the economic fallout that coronavirus containment measures have caused.

Trump is especially concerned with the economic fallout to his failing hotels. That is why he wants to send everyone back to work, and that is why he wanted Mnuchin to secretly dole out $425 Billion, to Trump’s failing hotels.

Thank heavens, the Dems are fighting it.

Trump’s followers believe it is a dandy idea.

Vice President Mike Pence echoed that sentiment in saying the CDC would update its guidance Monday to allow people exposed to the virus to return to work sooner if they wear a mask.

Wearing a mask has only marginal value, if that. More people will sicken and die if Trump has his way (but more importantly, his failing hotels will be saved).

It comes amid a “growing sentiment” in the White House that “medical experts were allowed to set policy that has hurt the economy,” and after some Republican lawmakers “pleaded with the White House to find ways to restart the economy.

Yes, masks don’t offer much protection, but who cares?

And as for those medical experts, what do they know about disease?

Let people die from the coronavirus. Saving Trump’s failing hotels is more important than saving people’s lives. Right?

Trump, whose hotel business is losing millions, says ‘I’ll be the oversight’ of $500 billion coronavirus ‘slush fund’

One of the big sticking points in a $1.8 trillion coronavirus bailout package Senate Republicans are trying to pass is a $500 billion fund for hard-hit businesses and state and local governments.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin would decide the recipients of $425 billion of that money, and the legislation contains no new oversight provisions for how it’s doled out, leading Democrats to warn that Mnuchin could use this “slush fund” to bail out politically connected corporations, GOP donors, and even President Trump’s private business.

When asked about those concerns during a press conference Monday evening, Trump said: “I’ll be the oversight, I’ll be the oversight. We’re gonna make good deals.”

Are these the same Republicans who keep trying to get rid of health care for the middle- and lower-income people? Yes, they are.

And don’t worry. Trump will be the oversight.

What was that story about the fox guarding the henhouse? This is the story of FOX News guarding the Presidency.

And here’s another great GOP idea:

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick thinks grandparents should be willing to sacrifice their lives to save the economy

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) seems to think that if given the choice, Americans 70 and over would be willing to risk getting coronavirus and possibly dying if it means stores re-open and the economy rebounds.

On Fox News Monday night, Patrick lamented not being asked how he would balance protecting some of the people most at-risk for contracting coronavirus — adults 65 and over — while keeping businesses up and running.

“No one reached out to me and said, as a senior citizen, are you willing to take a chance on your survival in exchange for keeping the America that all America loves for your children and grandchildren?” he said. “If that’s the exchange, I’m all in.”

Well, I certainly would be willing to sacrifice my life if that would save Trump’s failing hotels. I’m sure Trump would do the same for me.

THE SOLE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT IS TO IMPROVE AND PROTECT THE LIVES OF THE PEOPLE.

The most important problems in economics involve:

  1. Monetary Sovereignty describes money creation and destruction.
  2. Gap Psychology describes the common desire to distance oneself from those “below” in any socio-economic ranking, and to come nearer those “above.” The socio-economic distance is referred to as “The Gap.”

Wide Gaps negatively affect poverty, health and longevity, education, housing, law and crime, war, leadership, ownership, bigotry, supply and demand, taxation, GDP, international relations, scientific advancement, the environment, human motivation and well-being, and virtually every other issue in economics.

Implementation of Monetary Sovereignty and The Ten Steps To Prosperity can grow the economy and narrow the Gaps:

Ten Steps To Prosperity:

1. Eliminate FICA

2. Federally funded Medicare — parts A, B & D, plus long-term care — for everyone

3. Provide a monthly economic bonus to every man, woman and child in America (similar to social security for all)

4. Free education (including post-grad) for everyone

5. Salary for attending school

6. Eliminate federal taxes on business

7. Increase the standard income tax deduction, annually. 

8. Tax the very rich (the “.1%”) more, with higher progressive tax rates on all forms of income.

9. Federal ownership of all banks

10. Increase federal spending on the myriad initiatives that benefit America’s 99.9% 

The Ten Steps will grow the economy and narrow the income/wealth/power Gap between the rich and the rest.
