US demonstrates global leadership in healthcare — NOT

One million people worldwide have now died from confirmed coronavirus cases. It is a staggering toll — greater than the number of people estimated to have died from malaria, influenza, cholera and measles, combined, over the same period. And the real number of coronavirus deaths is almost certainly higher.

The U.S., with 4 percent of the world’s population, has suffered more than 20 percent of deaths.

Bum, Bum, Bumblebee Bum!

Christopher Lischewski, former Chief Executive Officer and President of Bumble Bee Foods LLC, was sentenced to serve 40 months in jail and pay a $100,000 criminal fine for his leadership role in a three-year antitrust conspiracy to fix prices of canned tuna…

…After a four-week trial in late 2019, he was convicted on the single count of participating in a conspiracy to fix prices of canned tuna. In imposing Lischewski’s 40-month prison sentence, the Court found that Lischewski was a leader or organizer of the conspiracy and that it affected over $600 million dollars of canned tuna sales.

Bumble Bee pleaded guilty and was sentenced to pay a $25 million criminal fine. In September, StarKist Co. was sentenced to pay a statutory maximum $100 million criminal fine. In addition to Bumble Bee and StarKist, four executives, including Lischewski, were charged in the investigation. The other three executives pleaded guilty and testified in Lischewski’s trial.

Of course, the only words we’ve heard from the Fake President about any kind of tuna were bullshit about cans of tuna in protests against his incompetence. Predictable. Sad.

200,000+ dead / Fake President lies / plays golf


Ren Onuma, Kyodo News

The president seemingly does not care about the more than 200,000 Americans who have lost their lives as a result of the coronavirus, but we do know one thing he cares deeply about — his golf game. Before hitting the links at one own private golf courses in Virginia on Saturday — for the 298th time in his presidency — Trump took to Twitter and thumbed out a slew of attacks and lies…

Finally, the president once again promised to replace Obamacare, something he often does but never accomplishes: “Obamacare will be replaced with a MUCH better, and FAR cheaper, alternative if it is terminated in the Supreme Court. Would be a big WIN for the USA!”

But don’t fall for Trump’s lies. Although he claims a recent executive order he signed will protect pre-existing conditions, the order is toothless and mostly performative. It does not even come close to offering the same protections as the Affordable Care Act.

This fascist clown show lies like a rug. Not even a rug as good as the orange foofaraw stapled to his scalp.
