Following a sharp spike in coronavirus cases across the country, State Department leadership sent out a notice to employees one week ago recommending that "any non-mission critical events" be changed to "virtual events as opposed to in-person gatherings."

Is the Trump administration still trying to sell the idea that Covid19 is just going to go away? It must be dawning on some Trump supporters that these people are simply insane. How can anyone continue to support an administration, a Presidency or a Sec. of State that are clearly insane?

When looking at the "operation warp speed" preparations...there is nothing that has been planned past February 2020 leaving Biden a huge ticking time bomb.

This is nothing different.

When looking at the "operation warp speed" preparations...there is nothing that has been planned past February 2020 leaving Biden a huge ticking time bomb.

That particular ticking time bomb indicates one of two things: 1) Trump knew he was going to lose the election, and he didn't care what happened after January 20th because Biden would be blamed; or 2) Trump just wanted to win the election and have the vaccine named after him, and once he did, he didn't care what happened after his second inauguration. I guess it could mean a third thing: Trump and his team are so incompetent and lazy they didn't bother to think and plan that far ahead.

Dream on. Trumplings will be 100% behind him in 2024. If he hasn't had his heart attack and died by then. Probably even after that.

All it takes is for a cult member to deny one single lie from your cult leader in order for you to declare he must be one of the enemy. He can accept and defend a thousand of your cult leader's lies and crimes, but that's not enough. If he denies a single one, he must be destroyed.

Your grandkids must be real proud of you.

Some more info on the topic...

Pompeo urged to cancel holiday parties over Covid
www.france24.com

...The American Foreign Service Association, the labor union and professional association for US diplomats, called the parties "disconcerting," noting that the State Department has advised US embassies to hold virtual-only receptions this year.

"While attendance at these events is not mandatory for invitees, the same is not true for State Department employees and contract catering workers," it said in a statement.

"The catering workers often do not receive health insurance from their employers and must staff these events in order to keep their jobs," it said.

"We urge the department to reverse course and model responsible behavior in accordance with its own guidelines."

Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, in a letter to Pompeo voiced fear that employees would feel pressure to attend.

"I hope as we approach this difficult and unusual holiday season that you will put the health and wellbeing of department employees and workers first and cancel any in-person events which are clearly not 'mission-critical,'" he wrote....

What Pompeo needs to do is invite all those people to a Weight Watchers conference.

@#18 ... All it takes is for a cult member to deny one single lie from your cult leader in order for you to declare he must be one of the enemy. ...

That's the way it is in dictatorships and those who support those dictatorships.

Total agreement must be ever-present. Dissent is not allowed. The comment your comment replies to is a good example of such polyp-checking.

It is the reason why Pres Trump picks his aids, not for their ability or capability to to do the job, but for their unfettered fealty to Pres Trump. For their willingness to say what Pres Trump wants them to say and only that.

To wit, AG Barr says one thing wrong, and Pres Trump is looking to show him the door. After all that AG Barr has done for Pres trump, AG Barr says one thing in disagreement and he's sliding down the exit ramp.

He said the dude lost. Called him the "Lewser" in so many words. He must be purged. In a real dictatorship he would die.

Give it a chance. One of trump's deranged cult members could kill him any day once he's on the enemies list.

We would love to see him in prison.

Can you run for President from prison?

Oh well. That's 4 years from now. We wont even remember who this Barr fella was by then.

So. Good luck with that!
