Numerous whistleblowers allege "jarring medical neglect" ICE concentration camp, including an "inordinate rate" of hysterectomies and a refusal to test detainees for COVID-19. You'll recall, of course, that Nazi concentration camps were also notorious for forced hysterectomies, although, hey, that's happened plenty in America, too (remember Carrie Buck?). Sadly, too many Americans will hear of forced hysterectomies and think "good, don't let them reproduce" and "thank God our President is doing something." Remember that they also think of themselves as good people, perhaps even good people "driven" to do evil.
ProPublica finds no shortage of people who "Know How to Prevent Megafires," and wonders "Why Won't Anybody Listen?" I was all ready to guess it had to do with our leaders' refusal to solve problems and pretend that the persistence of problems makes them indispensable, but apparently not -- folks have an understandable-yet-tragic resistance to setting controlled fires, though controlled fires would reduce the amount of "fuel load" and thus reduce the number and intensity of the wildfires we're seeing all across the West Coast now. So maybe our President had a point when he blamed forest mismanagement -- not that you'd necessarily hear it over his refusal to admit climate change also plays a role.
I guess it's good that HHS spokeshack Michael Caputo apologized to his staff for saying he was fighting the "deep state" by trying to bully the CDC into issuing information more favorable to our President, but he also made a lot of excuses for his behavior. I mean, I would wish him well in resolving his health issues, and of course I don't condone any death threats made against anyone, but real leaders don't mention their personal problems; they just apologize for their wrongdoing and either resign or do better. Of course, every time our President sees a bad leader, he thinks that's my kind of guy!
Scientific American makes first Presidential endorsement in its 175-year history and, OK, it's Joe Biden. Their case first highlights our President's multitudinous failures and then lists Mr. Biden's proposals, which admittedly sound better than they did, say, a year ago. Just remember that a lot of the folks who say of Scientific American that THEYZ SHOULDZ STAYZ OUTZ OFZ TEH POLITICZ!!!!! are permanent students of YouTube University who of course wouldn't dream of "staying out of the science."
Former Administration economic "advisor" Gary Cohn says he's "not sure" if he'll vote for the President who used to employ him. Dig how he says "I actually vote on issues," as if all of us "little people" don't, and as if "keeping ignorant assholes out of office" isn't an issue. And just like the rest of them who pretend to make such a big show of their independence, you know which way he's really going. Hint: Joe Biden has pledged to roll back those tax-cuts-for-the-rich Mr. Cohn worked so hard to pass.
Finally, one of our papers of record publishes this slab of hot-and-steaming by one Danielle Pletka, who says she "Never Considered" voting for our President last time around, but she "May Be Forced to Vote for Him This Year." She argues that the far left controls Joe Biden, an argument not exactly buttressed by his record, and I'm sure her argument's resemblance to any argument our President has made is sheer coincidence. Worse than that, of course, is paragraph 9's casual equation of "execrable gun-toting racists" with the AOC/Warren wing of the Democratic party -- and by saying she might be "forced" to vote for our President, she has thus expressed a preference for the execrable.
