Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, September 18, 2020

A controversial guideline saying people without Covid-19 symptoms didn't need to get tested for the virus came from H.H.S. officials and skipped the C.D.C.'s scientific review process.

Glad you posted this OCUser. This is unbearable. The lowlife POSs that infest the Trump Admin hiding behind the reputation of the CDC, using the CDC to promote Trump's lies, destroying the reputation of the CDC. What the hell are we going to do about this? What can we do? And now more misinformation is due to be posted on the CDC website tomorrow - none of it from the Scientists and reviewers of the CDC. Nothing from the CDC. All Trump garbage using the CDC to spread junk.

We are so ------ as a Nation. I don't know how we're going to recover from 4 years of Trump. We better not have to deal with 4 more.

"A new version of the testing guidance, expected to be posted Friday, has also not been cleared by the C.D.C.'s usual internal review for scientific documents"

"Similarly, a document, arguing for "the importance of reopening schools," was also dropped into the C.D.C. website by the Department of Health and Human Services in July"

So now we know the source for all this garbage that didn't sound like it came from the CDC at all. Wow.

Science is a 4-letter word in this Orwellian WH.

IMO we're not. Even if Biden wins he can't fix the damage.

Trump isn't the problem, his 60 million cult members that get their news in a bubble are.

Both are a problem, but it takes two to tango.

Republicans will continue to be an ongoing barrier to progress, just as they've been my entire life.

Yeah, it was written by a hatchet man that Trump put in HHS as a "spokes person" ~ a guy that had no knowledge or experience with infectious diseases. His name was "Caputo" or some such thing.

But he didn't last long. He turned out to be one of those guys who howl at the moon on his days off.

IOW, he was ------- crazy. (the real kind)

If Biden somehow manages to win, and I think that is a real long shot, Covid will mostly disappear from public discussion.

Covid will mostly disappear from public discussion.

This idiot believes the entire world is putting in a show, in order to hurt Trumps chances of re-election.

This is how demented Trump supporters are.

In their mind. It's completely rational to believe the entire world. Is lying. In order to hurt Trump.

This conspiracy is their reality.

Meanwhile. Trump is doing his best to make COVID disappear from public discussion. Literally right now.

Zeta. You are one dumb fkkking poster. Regardless of the fact you're a troll. You are really fkkking dumb.

If you want a government of personal fantasy and personal advantage over the health and safety or yourself and your family, then support Trump.

There are no rational reasons for Trumpism, only sick ones.

With that POS Barr whipping them up equating wearing a mask to slavery (are you f**king kidding me??!!) I bet you're more right than anyone would want. I can see Trumper idiots being rebellious morons acting out like children (they already do) all over.

That's why this November has to leave no doubt what America thinks of Trump and his base.

We need to rid ourselves of the Trump before he gets us killed....oh wait...he's already killed 200,000 of us.

Some of them will be.

In America, crimes like this aren't crimes. These people will face no punishment. They will find high paying private sector jobs doing the bidding of the Republicans and corporate America.

For all intents and purposes, this CDC 'testing guidelines' document was a forgery. Now there must be a law against forging government documents. Time for this 'Law & Order' administration to start putting their money where they mouth is. Of course, for AG Barr this means charging people exercising their 1st Amendment rights with sedition and arresting mayors for trying to protect the residents of their cities, while turning lose confessed criminals and protecting crooks how have already been convicted a felonies, just because they're "friends of the President".

I have to agree with SYCOPHANT.

Not that they aren't deserving of punishment if President Biden had all the time in the world. But he doesn't.

It's going to be a long and weary road to repair the damage Trump has done and time is of the essence. Biden's 4-years is only going to scrape the surface ~ or maybe less with the Republican Party accusing him of everything under the sun 24/7.

The loss of their authoritarian dream is going to be a dagger in the gut. Vicious attacks on Biden will run rampant.

The Republican party will be back in 2024 with a vengeance. There's no time to chase Trump's minions and cohorts through the justice system.

President Biden's full attention (and ours as well) must concentrate on repairing the damage and restoring faith and ESPECIALLY do whatever is necessary to keep the Democrat Party in control for many years in the future.
