From today's New York Times Morning Briefing:
- Tonight was supposed to be the second presidential debate. Instead, Trump and Joe Biden will hold competing televised events, with Biden’s on ABC and Trump’s on NBC.
- Some Democrats and media analysts criticized NBC for scheduling the Trump event at the same time as Biden’s, making it impossible for Americans to watch both candidates live.
That's seriously fucked up. Or, it's blatant proof that America is in a civil war that yet lacks both sides shooting and maiming and killing each other, which could become realty, given the hate and rage I see daily on Facebook.
Furthermore, nearly all Democrats I conversed with rejected Dr. Vladimir Zelenko's cheap, fast early-stage coronavirus cure, which saves them having to go to a hospital like President Trump had to do recently, because he had rejected Dr. Zelenko's cure: 200 mg. hydroxychloroquine 2 x a day, 220 mg. zinc sulfate 1 x a day, 200 mg. azithromycin 1 x a day, for 5 days. Hydroxychloroquine transports zinc into body cells, where zinc stops coronavirus replication. Azithromycin treats any secondary infections.
President Trump received Dr. Zelenko's March 23, 2020 letter outlining the treatment protocol that could have allowed America (and the world) to reopen safely.
Sean Hannity read that letter to a skeptical Vice President Mike Pence on Sean's FOX show. Pence was in charge of President Trump's coronavirus task force. Sean then interviewed Dr. Zelenko. The news media, the medical-industrial complex and the Democrats went haywire attacking hydroxychloroquine, President Trump and Dr. Zelenko. Dr. Zelenko was investigated by a US Attorney. What could have saved America in April, died.
I became convinced that Democrats, in the main, would choose dying from the coronavirus, to taking Dr. Zelekno's cure, because Trump and Hannity had touted the cure. I became convinced Democrats, in the main, would choose the death of America, because Trump and Hannity had promoted Dr. Zeleno's cure. I became convinced Trump betrayed America when he did not damn the torpedoes and steam full speed ahead making Dr. Zelenko's cheap, fast cure available for free to all Americans. That would have saved America in warp speed and there would not have been no Operation Warp speed.

The surging virus
The autumn wave of the coronavirus has reached a dangerous new stage. The number of new daily cases has risen almost 50 percent in the U.S. over the past month. The situation is even worse in Europe.
For the first time since late March, the per capita number of new cases in Europe exceeds the number in the U.S.:

“The virus is everywhere in France,” the French president, Emmanuel Macron, said yesterday, while imposing a nighttime curfew in major cities.
The onset of cooler weather, which is driving more people indoors, seems to be playing a big role. And many people seem to have grown tired of pandemic restrictions, leading politicians — in both Europe and the U.S. — to lift restrictions prematurely.
In late June, as The Times’s Mark Landler writes from Europe, residents in Prague held a dinner party stretching across the Charles Bridge to celebrate what they called — wrongly — the end of the outbreak. Italy and Spain welcomed summer tourists.
But the pandemic hasn’t gone away. While treatments are getting better, many people are still dying — including almost 6,000 in India over the past week, 5,000 in the U.S., 1,700 in Iran, 850 in Spain and about 600 in both Britain and France. A widely available vaccine is still months away, even if the current research trials go well.
Amid all of this bad news, it’s worth keeping in mind that some countries continue to fight the virus successfully. The per capita rate of new cases in Canada is less than half as high as it is in the U.S. In Australia and much of Africa and Asia, the rate remains near zero.
In many places where case counts are rising, political leaders are reluctant to impose new lockdowns, because the public is tired of them. But that creates something of a Catch-22: The most reliable way to reverse big outbreaks of this virus has been through strict crackdowns.
In the U.S.: The virus is spreading in every region, with the highest case counts in the South and Midwest, as you can see in these charts.
- Biden’s pandemic response plans “carry echoes of Roosevelt’s New Deal,” write The Times’s Abby Goodnough and Sheryl Gay Stolberg. He would create 100,000 jobs for contact tracers and increase the production of protective gear and test kit
Biden's pandemic response is a joke. Trump's pandemic response is a joke.
