UPDATE: Not to mention the most glorious economy in 50 years, cratered by the Chinese Communist Party’s virus and the ill-considered lockdowns of mainly Dimocrat governors and mayors. Even the NYT wants it back, but there’s little chance Pedo Joe can deliver.
MORE: One of the 40 (!) EO’s Pedo Emperor Joe has signed brings back all the regs and then some. So kiss the good economy bye-bye and welcome back to the Bronco Bama doldrums.
I voted yesterday, a straight Republican ticket, though the voting machine made me check each race. Annoying but done.

Trump’s Game Plan:
1 Identify himself with law + order
2 Avoid using federal force that can turn into Kent State 2 (the Dem dream)
3 Use the DOJ to prosecute & deter the radicals who were happy to riot knowing Dem prosecutors would give them a pass
4 Let them overstep
Plausible if the mercurial Trump can hold to a plan.
President Trump and Vice-President Pence plan to go see SpaceX launch a pair of veteran astronauts to the ISS station on Wednesday, the first launch of people from our soil since 2011.
They will ride in a Crew Dragon capsule atop a Falcon 9 heavy off old Pad 39A in Florida. Pity it’s not in South Texas, where SpaceX is planning to do launches.
With the president in attendance, and running for re-election, a lot is riding on this in addition to the two astronauts. Good luck to all.
UPDATE: Weather abort. Next window to try be Saturday afternoon.
Neat salute, sending the Air Force’s Thunderbirds and Navy’s Bue Angels to overfly NYC, New Jersey and Philadelphia, to salute health-care workers on the frontlines of the pandemic. Also sending B-52s over New Orleans. Way to go, President Trump!
The WaPo, second only in uselessness to the world’s most over-rated newspaper, i.e. The NYSlimes, hopes to scare as many as possible. Because that sells newspapers?
Says Dr. Deborah Birx, of the White House’s Coronavirus Task Force:
“Please, for the reassurance of people around the world, to wake up this morning and look at people talking about creating DNR situations — do not resuscitate situations for patients — there is no situation in the United States right now that warrants that kind of discussion.“
Nor is it likely to, though time will tell.
