Vanity Fair: How Jared Kushner’s Secret Testing Plan “Went Poof Into Thin Air”

Most troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner’s team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. “The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy,” said the expert.

That logic may have swayed Kushner. “It was very clear that Jared was ultimately the decision maker as to what [plan] was going to come out,” the expert said.

A lot more to it of course. Good long form article describing the White House response.

T and R, Ms. Benny!! 😊🕊👍 The hurricane is a cat. 1. The Bahamas will bear the brunt of it as it’s predicted to eventually turn in a more northerly direction. The bigger problem is tomorrow is 8/1. There are 2 more fronts coming off the storm nursery of the African west coast. We are now going into the height of the season: August, September and most of October. Couple that with climate change and CV pandemic. Funsies.🤬😳

Trumpcorp logic; CV-19 is just the flu, The hurricane is just a seasonal mild thunderstorm so his supporters should feel safe.

If you don’t turn on the news, there’s no hurricane.

Clinton meant to pay the late Congressman a compliment by showing that Lewis was “a good one.”

Right now I’m reading Thomas Frank’s “Listen Liberal.” To say that Bubba.Clinton was a RW scourge on this nation would be an understatement. 🤬

Re: Bundy: The death of conservatism comes from, of all things, cognitive dissonance?

We are actually visiting my home state MA for a long weekend in Provincetown. That hurricane map shows that we are leaving just in time (Monday) before the hurricane (or tropical storm) is projected to hit Cape Cod on Tuesday.

Be careful, safe and behave yourself, jcb.😂👍

Ptown is pretty quiet compared to a usual summer. All the bars are closed of course and everyone really pays attention to the mask protocol
Here’s a photo taken at Race Point on our pedal through the bike paths through the dunes of the National Seashore

Lots of super-nice looking smiles!! 😀

I love those dunes, so cool.

Ditto , Looks like a cat -1 for your area orl, hunker down!!!

No, it’s a baby. The Bahamas will take the brunt. I have a very old friend who is rebuilding her condo in the Abacos (NW Bahamas). They are getting set for the storm. I will be glad to see my birthday. That is when the storm season ends.

Once in a while we’ll get a cat 1 gust with a good storm up here, want no part of a 2,3,4,5 or a 10 if they have to change the scale due to climate change…

I love the Abacos, only have gone once, but that was enough to fall in love.

I wish your friend well. Please let us know how it went for her?

Today looks good for us here in SW CT, but tomorrow not so much.

Those #’s in the poll are making me cross my fingers!
