For a nation reeling from the coronavirus, Donald Trump’s announcement, early Friday morning, Oct. 2, that he and first lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpEric Trump falsely calls president’s coronavirus treatment a vaccine Trump rallies supporters at White House in first event since COVID-19 diagnosis Christie released from the hospital after COVID-19 diagnosis MORE had tested positive for the disease represented the perfect teachable moment.

On the one hand, it could not have come at a worse time. After a couple months of decline, over 20 states reported a daily increase in new COVID-19 cases. The NFL was forced to postpone several games. Many college campuses started classes, only to close weeks later, due to a resurgence of new cases. The death toll surpassed 200,000. With schools, restaurants, and businesses reopening, health experts warned of a fall resurgence.

On the other hand, Trump’s diagnosis came at just the right time. Assuming,

On trips like these, Secret Service agents were there to protect Trump’s children. But, for the Trump family business, their visits also brought a hidden side benefit.

That’s because when Trump’s adult children visited Trump properties, Trump’s company charged the Secret Service for agents to come along. The president’s company billed the U.S. government hundreds, or thousands, of dollars for rooms agents used on each trip, as the agency sometimes booked multiple rooms or a multiroom rental cottage on the property

In this way, Trump’s adult children and their families have caused the U.S. government to spend at least $238,000 at Trump properties so far, according to Secret Service records obtained by The Washington Post.

Government ethics experts say that nothing is wrong with Trump’s children seeking protection from the Secret Service.

But, they said, the Trump Organization’s decision to charge for the agents’ rooms created a situation in which

As a candidate in 2016, Donald Trump, suggesting his opponent was a dirty, transactional pol, offered himself as a man free of the entanglements of supposed Washington swamp creatures, an independent businessman who was free to do what was right for America.

He has delivered a presidency with more corrupt ties than any in memory, corrupting the honest workings of the federal government. It’s our 78th reason he must be denied a second term.

Begin with the fact that, despite 19 promises to divest himself from the private-sector enterprise he owns — a business with countless ambitions and obligations, here and overseas — Trump has failed to do so. His sons Don Jr. and Eric, ostensibly running the family business, pledged to separate stay away from government affairs. They didn’t. Meanwhile, White House staffer daughter and son-in-law, Ivanka and Jared Kushner, maintain their holdings.

For Trump himself, this isn’t just

WASHINGTON (AP) — Impatient to return to the campaign trail, President Donald Trump dubiously claimed he’s fully recovered and immune from COVID-19, hailed a cure that isn’t so and declared the coronavirus is “disappearing” even as cases spiked.

Beware the aftereffects of minimum wage hikes

Minimum wage is payment to non-skilled workers and/or for income supplement. It is unrealistic to equate it to a cost of living wage.

Minimum wage increase forces struggling business owners to raise the wages for all their more skilled higher paid workers. The outcome is layoffs, business closures, higher unemployment, higher price for consumer goods, and higher tax liability to tax payers.

Minimum wage jobs should be characterized as a motivator to stimulate a desire for higher education and/or blue-collar job training leading to jobs providing a good cost of living wage.

Business-friendly bills passing through our state legislature are always voted favorably by Republicans, but historically, and overwhelmingly, voted against by the controlling Democrats who are the cause for our undesirable business environment. Lost to us is big business from considering a move to Rhode Island providing business growth with high paying

  • There’s no Hail Mary for liberals who want to thwart Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court confirmation. 
  • Even top congressional Democrats concede that their toolbox is pretty much empty as Republicans plow ahead to confirm a conservative replacement for the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 
  • “If they want to do that, we think they can before the election but we are exploring all options,” Sen. Tim Kaine, a Virginia Democrat and 2016 vice presidential nominee, told Insider.
  • A blockbuster revelation from Barrett’s past — which has already been heavily scrutinized — or a widespread COVID-19 outbreak in the Senate that complicates a final floor vote on her confirmation may be the only real threats to her quick confirmation.

President Trump received mostly the same treatment as anyone would get for COVID-19, except for one experimental drug and the speed of his care.

The claim: Antibody cocktail Trump received is made from fetal stem cells 

Since President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis and hospitalization, health care professionals have voiced concerns regarding his broad medical regimen, which include steroid dexamethasone and Gilead’s remdesivir. One treatment in particular, an experimental antibody drug from Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, is drawing criticism on social media. 

“So it turns out the monoclonal antibodies Trump is on are from fetal stem cells. So Trump is being treated/saved with dead babies,” reads a Twitter post shared on the Facebook group Dogs for Democracy.

The tweet goes on to call out Republicans,  Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett and anti-abortion activists.
