White House To Do Extra "Deep Cleaning" and Disinfect Before Joe Biden Arrives on Jan. 20

White House To Do Extra “Deep Cleaning” and Disinfect Before Joe Biden Arrives on Jan. 20

Via USA Today:

In just six hours on Inauguration Day, belongings of a departing president’s family are moved out, carpets are cleaned, furniture is rearranged, fresh art is hung and the executive mansion is transformed for its new residents before they set foot inside.

But staff tasked with preparing the executive mansion for the arrival Jan. 20 of President-elect Joe Biden and his family will do so under extraordinary circumstances: the COVID-19 contagion that has already infected departing President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump and multiple White House staffers.

When someone working in a school, business, library or other public building tests positive for coronavirus, the property owners or managers often respond by ordering the structure to undergo what is known as a “deep cleaning” – a process in which highly specialized contractors are brought in to eradicate the virus with botanical disinfectants.

It’s going to take them months to get all that fast food grease off of the Resolute Desk.

Joy to the World!


Every December since 2017, First Lady Melania Trump filled the White House with 
holiday decorations: Christmas trees, wreaths, garland, colorful lights, gingerbread houses, and more. 2020 marks the final holiday season for the Trump White House. Volunteers from across the country will work diligently in late November to get the White House ready for the very popular public White House holiday tours.

At least someone in the White House knows what’s going on and will be put on Satna’s nice list.

Ho! Ho! Ho! (No. Not you Melania.)

White House Declares Coronavirus Pandemic Over, Praises Trump's First Term Accomplishment.

White House Declares Coronavirus Pandemic Over, Praises Trump’s First Term Accomplishment.

On Tuesday, the coronavirus’ U.S. fatality toll topped 227,000 Americans dead and the nation averaging more than 70,000 – 90,000 new cases per day.  Ironically also on Tuesday the Trump administration triumphantly declared victory over the COVID-19 pandemic in a new 62-page report from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy listing what it claims are the scientific and technological accomplishments during Donald Trump’s first term which includes “ENDING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.”

Despite the fact that the pandemic is far from over thanks in no small part to the Trump administration’s mishandled response this new falsified report proves that the Trump administration has not only surrendered to the pandemic but is also trying to to steer public attention away from its failure to control the spread.  

A recent report from Columbia University estimates that the “abject failures” of government agencies under Trump resulted in between 130,000 and 210,000 avoidable deaths attributable to COVID-19. Meanwhile Trump Trump is pushing insane, conspiracy theories that the media is trying to sow fear ahead of the election and that health officials are exaggerating COVID-19 deaths because “doctors get more money and hospitals get more money.”

Trump White House Didn’t Want to Tell Seniors Not to Fly During Coronavirus Outbreak

The Associated Press has reported that Donald Trump and the White House overruled health officials who wanted to recommend that elderly and physically fragile Americans be advised not to fly on commercial airlines during the Coronavirus outbreak despite being at high-risk to contract it.

Trump administration officials have since suggested certain people should consider not traveling, but they have stopped short of the stronger guidance sought by the CDC instead saying that people should use “common sense”.

In a tweet, the press secretary for Vice President Mike Pence, Katie Miller, said that “it was never a recommendation to the Task Force” and called the AP story “complete fiction.”

Pence, speaking Saturday after meeting with cruise ship industry leaders in Florida, targeted his travel advice to a narrower group: older people with serious health problems.

“If you’re a senior citizen with a serious underlying health condition, this would be a good time to practice common sense and to avoid activities including traveling on a cruise line,” Pence said, adding they were looking to cruise line officials for action, guidance and flexibility with those passengers.

Dr. Peter Hotez, dean of tropical medicine at Baylor College of Medicine, this week warned U.S. lawmakers against minimizing the viruses risk for vulnerable people. During a Congressional hearing, he said the coronavirus “is like the angel of death for older individuals.”

On Friday, the CDC quietly updated its website to tell older adults and people with severe medical conditions such as heart, lung or kidney disease to “stay home as much as possible” and avoid crowds. It urges those people to “take actions to reduce your risk of exposure,” but it doesn’t specifically address flying.

Kellyanne Conjob: Detention Center Conditions Are Great!

Sure Jan: Kellyanne Conway Claims She Was Assaulted

CNN reports:

Kellyanne Conway says that she was grabbed and shaken by a woman while out with her teenage daughter in a Maryland restaurant late last year. In an interview with CNN, the White House counselor to President Donald Trump talked about the alleged assault for the first time publicly.

She recounted how the woman, who was later identified by authorities as a 63-year-old Maryland resident, approached her “screaming her head off” at Uncle Julio’s, a Mexican restaurant in the DC suburb of Bethesda, as Conway’s middle school-aged daughter looked on.

Conway said she called 911, though the woman had left before local police arrived. After an investigation, Mary Elizabeth Inabinett was charged in November with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct. A trial is set for March in Maryland state court.

Trump Administration's Dept. of Health and Human Services To Drop LGBT Protections

Trump’s White House Approves The Use of “Lethal Force” Against Migrants

Via The Military Times:

The White House late Tuesday signed a memo allowing troops stationed at the border to engage in some law enforcement roles and use lethal force, if necessary — a move that legal experts have cautioned may run afoul of the Posse Comitatus Act.

The new “cabinet order” was signed by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, not President Donald Trump. It allows “Department of Defense military personnel” to “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary” to protect border agents, including “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention. and cursory search.”

There are approximately 5,900 active-duty troops and 2,100 National Guard forces deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border.  Some of those activities, including crowd control and detention, may run into potential conflict with the 1898 Posse Comitatus Act. If crossed, the erosion of the act’s limitations could represent a fundamental shift in the way the U.S. military is used, legal experts said.

The Posse Comitatus Act, was enacted in 1878, and forbids the use of the United States Army, and through it, its offspring, the United States Air Force, as a posse comitatus or for law enforcement purposes without the approval of Congress.

The original provision was enacted as Section 15 of chapter 263, of the Acts of the 2nd session of the 45th Congress.

Sec. 15. From and after the passage of this act it shall not be lawful to employ any part of the Army of the United States, as a posse comitatus, or otherwise, for the purpose of executing the laws, except in such cases and under such circumstances as such employment of said force may be expressly authorized by the Constitution or by act of Congress; and no money appropriated by this act shall be used to pay any of the expenses incurred in the employment of any troops in violation of this section and any person willfully violating the provisions of this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction thereof shall be punished by fine not exceeding ten thousand dollars or imprisonment not exceeding two years or by both such fine and imprisonment

rump DOJ Files Supreme Court Brief Against Adoptions By LGBTs

Trump’s White House Applauds SCOTUS Ruling in Favor of Anti-Gay Baker

Although the Supreme Court handed Jack Phillips and his Masterpiece Bakery a “narrow” win that applies only to his incident with Colorado’s Civil Rights Commission and doesn’t set up a sweeping rule enabling anti-LGBT discrimination, many anti-LGBT groups have hailed the decision as a major win for religious freedom and now so does Donald Trump’s White House.

White House Press Secretary Sarah “Smokey Eye” Huckabee Sanders hailed Tuesday as a win for religious freedom the narrow ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to serve a custom-made wedding cake to a same-sex couple.

“When it comes to the bakers, we were pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision,” Sanders said. “The First Amendment prohibits government discriminating against the basis of religious beliefs, and the Supreme Court rightly concluded that the Colorado Civil Rights Commission failed to show tolerance and respect for his religious beliefs.”

Sanders also alluded to support in the lawsuit for Masterpiece Cakeshop by the Trump administration. The U.S. Justice Department submitted a friend-of-the-court brief in favor of Colorado baker Jack Phillips and U.S. Solicitor General Neil Francisco argued before the Supreme Court on his behalf.

“In this case and others, the Department of Justice will continue to vigorously defend the free speech and religious freedom First Amendment rights,” Sanders said.

The Supreme Court’s vote was narrow not because of the number of justices for and against, but because of the slim precedent it sets.

The justices did not issue a definitive ruling on the circumstances under which people can seek exemptions from anti-discrimination laws based on their religious views. The decision also did not address important claims raised in the case including whether baking a cake is a kind of expressive act protected by the Constitution’s free speech guarantee. But simpler minds like those of many LGBT hate group leaders, their followers and it seems the White House itself is refusing to recognize that.

Two of the court’s four liberals, Stephen Breyer and Elena Kagan, joined the five conservative justices in the ruling authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who also was the author of the landmark 2015 decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide.

“The commission’s hostility was inconsistent with the First Amendment’s guarantee that our laws be applied in a manner that is neutral toward religion,” Kennedy wrote.

But Kennedy also stressed the importance of gay rights while noting that litigation on similar issues is likely to continue in lower courts.

“Our society has come to the recognition that gay persons and gay couples cannot be treated as social outcasts or as inferior in dignity and worth,” Kennedy wrote.

“The outcome of cases like this in other circumstances must await further elaboration in the courts, all in the context of recognizing that these disputes must be resolved with tolerance, without undue disrespect to sincere religious beliefs, and without subjecting gay persons to indignities when they seek goods and services in an open market,” Kennedy added.

Anti-Gay White House Omits Husband Of Luxembourg Prime Minister In Official Photo

Anti-Gay White House Omits Husband Of Luxembourg Prime Minister In Official Photo

 

The Trump White House on Saturday omitted Gauthier Destenay, the husband of Luxembourg prime minister Xavier Bettel, from the caption to an official photograph of the spouses of Nato leaders, taken at this week’s summit in Brussels. Destenay, a Belgian architect, married Bettel in 2015, becoming the first same-sex spouse of a leader of a European Union member state.

American first lady Melania Trump was identified twice in the caption to the official White House photograph, which was taken by Andrea Hanks and posted to Facebook in a collection of pictures from Trump’s nine-day international tour.

The caption read: “First Lady Melania Trump poses with Belgium’s Queen Mathilde, center, and other spouses of Nato leaders: First Lady Emine Erdoğan of Turkey; Iceland’s Thora Margret Baldvinsdottir; the First Lady of France Brigitte Trogneux; First Lady Melania Trump; Slovenia’s Mojca Stropnik; Bulgaria’s Desislava Radeva; Belgium’s Amélie Derbaudrenghien, and Norway’s Ingrid Schulerud, during their visit Thursday 25 May 2917 [sic], at the Royal Palace in Brussels.” – via The Guardian

Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin, and Kid Rock Walk Into A Trailer Park…. I Mean The White House

The Hill reports:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) visited President Trump at the White House late Wednesday, bringing along musicians Ted Nugent and Kid Rock. Palin has been an outspoken supporter of Trump since his campaign, and was invited to be one of his guests during an October debate last year.

On Wednesday night, Palin, Kid Rock and Nugent were pictured in the Oval Office with the president. Nugent’s wife, Shemane Deziel and Audrey Berry, Kid Rock’s fiancee, were also at the White House and are in one of the photos. The three posed mockingly in front of a portrait of former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The meeting was catered by Cracker Barrel.

Trump’s White House Lists The Pulse Massacre An ‘Ignored Terrorist News Event”

Trump's White House Lists The Pulse Massacre A 'Ignored Terrorist News Event"

In an attempt to justify their recent Anti-immigration Ban disaster and to push the fear of terrorism to justify it, Donald Trump’s White House staff has released a document of terrorist attacks that they say the media have “ignored,” incredibly they specify The Pulse Nightclub massacre as one of them.

Trump claimed Monday that terror attacks are happening ‘all over Europe’ but they’re not being covered by the ‘very, very dishonest press.’

Speaking to U.S. Special Forces and U.S. Central Command soldiers, he said, ‘We’re up against an enemy that celebrates death and totally worships destruction. You’ve seen that. ISIS is on a campaign of genocide, committing atrocities across the world.

‘Radical Islamic terrorists are determined to strike our homeland as they did on 9/11, as they did from Boston to Orlando to San Bernardino, and all across Europe,’ he said. ‘You’ve seen what happened in Paris and Nice. All over Europe, it’s happening.’

He at that point added: ‘It’s gotten to a point where it’s not even being reported. And in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn’t want to report it. They have their reasons, and you understand that.’

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen entered the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando and opened fire, killing 49 people and injuring 53, making it the worst mass shooting by a lone gunman in United States history. 

Media attention was fast and widespread, with major networks filming live at the scene with non-stop coverage by all major news networks.

Manteen was an American born citizen.
