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.
You gotta hunt for the virus good news since the Mediacrats are all about gloom and doom in hopes of destroying the Trump Economy. Americans be damned. One excellent source to start with is the White House’s West Wing Reads.
“Vice President Mike Pence, head of the Administration’s Coronavirus Task Force, announced yesterday that private health insurers have agreed to waive co-pays for Coronavirus testing and treatment. ‘The vice president said testing will be available at LabCorp and Quest Diagnostic locations and 4 million additional test kits will be sent out by the end of the week,’ Fred Lucas reports for The Daily Signal.”
