Trump Commuted to 14-Day Quarantine in South Florida

Mir-a-Lago, Florida – July 11, 2020 – PRESIDENT TRUMP, BARON, AND FIRST LADY SENTENCED TO MANDATORY FORTNIGHT STAY –

The Sun~Chronicles report that the reigning Governor of the “Sunshine State” must enforce the ‘first family’ 14-day quarantine due to legislative action in Tallahassee.

Air marshals have grounded the aged Air Force One on the tarmac and a motorcade was awaiting Mr. Trump and his entourage following their less than successful fundraisers, which followed the president’s luckless participation in a meeting focusing on drug trafficking.

Much of Mr. Trump’s message fell on deaf ears.

The audience questioned the president’s judgement about many issues other than illicit drugs: Covid 19, gun control, schools, social injustice, and the nerve of Trump to commute the criminal sentence of fellow New Yorker ROGER STONE.

There have been more than 60,000 new cases of Covid 19 most days this past week.

The president’s lack of leadership and good judgment has been questioned by examples every day. His priorities are misplaced. His inaction, particularly on both domestic and foreign policies have been inexcusable.

The 14-day ban from being in the White House may be great for the United States.

The president’s chief-of-staff is considering having Donald where mittens at night so that he will not be able to tweet idiotic statements.

WH Fact Checkers Having a Field Day with Trump, Pence, and New Press Secretary Statements since last Monday

Presidential tweets from Camp David this weekend are adding to fact checker burn out.

We should figure that everything from the White House between May and November is a political speech propaganda. Consider this: Over 30 thousand lies have been communicated since January 2017 and countless misleading statements have been made.

The rules for the Trump Administration have been different from the prior 44 presidents. Now in an election year, things will get not better, as will the death toll associated with Covid 19.

It could be amuzing how Trump will put a positive spin on death.

The list of others to blame is also increasing.

Part VII in the Covid-19 Series: “Social Distancining does NOT mean ‘social isolation'”

Mother Earth – Friday, March 13, 2020 – SOCIAL DISTANCING SHOULD NOT MEAN ‘SOCIAL ISOLATION’ –

Retired public health and safety official David A. Dailey is against recent decisions “in the name of safety” to keep people away from community and sporting events. The very essence of modern life is being destroyed by well-meaning administrators, who are cancelling evnts and not offering any alternatives.

To gut NCAA “March Madness” tournaments and deny fans anticipated enjoyment and eliminating student-athletes the annual opportunity to compete for a coveted national championship – a chance of a lifetime – is just plain awful. Would college football cancel giving out a Heisman Trophy one year because of something like ‘social distancing’?!?

Heisman Trophy

This Trophy was First Awarded about 10 Years After George Gipp Passed-Away with Pneumonia

Dr. Dailey would not trade his 1976 National Championship at Indiana University for any other collegiate experience. That senior year around the 32-0 mens basketball team will always be extra special. To think that anyone would be denied the opportunity to play in and win “The Big Dance” is practically unthinkable.

PSA #3 Regarding Covid-19 Issues – Prevention Methods / Epidemiology that Most Healthcare Professions Agree – Plus Resilience Building of People (Host), Taking Action (Environment), and Managing the Viral Threats (Agent)

Making Effective Attempts to Manage the Public Health Scare (March 7, 2020) –

CDC = Center of Dailey Control, Woodside, CA 94062-2448 –

There are more than a dozen things that competent healthcare and medical research professionals agree should be done now. Taking a look at the big picture, the Indiana University School of Public Health has published eight aspects of Total Wellness:

8 Dimensions of Wellness

 

In general, do what you would normally do. Do not feel that you have to cancel all instances where you may contact any virus. If you are feeling well and have a resilience/resistance to acquiring an illness, do not worry. Worry and anxiety could lower one’s natural defenses.

To be on the safe side, tweek your routine. Particularly if you can think of ways to lower your potential exposure to pathogens. Remember, people get colds and three-day flu this time of year annually. In addition, eliminate unhealthy habits.

Apply the Host – Agent – Environment analysis. Knowledgable people understand that they have more control over ‘host factors.’ Therefore, take action about how the host may become more resilient toward the agent. Some environmental factors may be beyond peoples’ ability to control. The characteristics of the viral agent are often specific.

The Covid 19 Virus is a new phenomenon. Medical researchers are beginning to understand this virus’ characteristics. There are a number of things that healthcare professionals recommend should be done to prevent the spread of this strain, pneumonia, and other viruses.

  1. How to manage coughing – If possible, cough in a room alone and clean up after thyself. My Mom always told me that coughing is good – this action naturally gets bad stuff out of your body. Maintain your good manners and practice common sense.
  2. Sneezing into disposable tissue is recommended. Droplets could be dispersed more than 18 inches away.
  3. How not to touch the eyes, nose, and mouth with contaminated hands. Be more vigilant and less careless.
  4. Personal hygiene is very important. In particular, washing hands must be done with at least 20 seconds of running water. Water removes the germs from your fingers, palm, and wrists.
  5. Eat well. Take vitamins. Keep to the correct schedule for taking prescribed medicines. A good diet will help keep your resilience high.
  6. Practice ‘universal precautions.’ If one expels blood or other bodily fluids, clean it up. An effective, inexpensive way to cleanse potentially contaminated areas is a 10% solution of bleach. Utilize personal protective equipment, such as disposable gloves during housekeeping.
  7. Exercise the best you can; remember, not everyone can work out like a triathlete.
  8. Sleep well. Sleep more and take naps if you are not feeling your best. If you are stuck at work, ask the boss tor a long break or the rest of the day off.
  9. Isolation and separation of people…
  10. Obtaining medical care: Do so immediately when it is necessary!
  11. Self-care is a daily responsibility. Clean bodies can frustrate ‘Mr. Germ.”
  12. “Ready – Set – Go “  Emergency responders are promoting this approach in California. Planning and preparation should be completed before an urgent contingency/hazard is encountered. Get ready for viral exposures – Set up prevention and mitigation measures – then GO ahead and implement the prescribed procedures in a timely and effective manner with trained and qualified personnel, necessary equipment, and the required support services and follow up,
  13. Be proactive . . . and use “common sense.” Notice that “common sense” is not so common. In fact, in the book Lessons Learned from Dogs, the author points out that dogs seem to be smarter than 50% of human beings.
  14. Avoid harmful habits. Change your routine to make it safer and healthier.
  15. Maintain a positive attitude. Negativity, worry, anxiety, and certain triggering events can lower a person’s ability to fight off onset of illness, injury, and disease.
  16. Think about the health of others. If taking care of yourself is not your priority, think about other peoples’ health and safety. This should be your motivation. Do not do anything that exposes vulnerable humans and other living things to harm.

Just a Thought: A Reflection on Republican History – Avoiding a Constitutional Crisis, Preserving the Republic, and Fostering World Peace

Could the Republican Party do the U.S. and the world a favor?

May we take a lesson from history?

It was done during the 1970’s.

In the name of the party of Abraham Lincoln and by the grace of God, can it happen again?

(1) The Speaker of the House of Representatives changed prior to the mid-term election of 1974, with a presidential election looming in 1976.

(2) The dishonorable Vice President (Spiro Agnew / like Mike Pence) was replaced.

(3) The sitting President (RMN) resigned with some dignity and many accomplishments.

(4) The Vice President (Gerald Ford) seamlessly assumed the Presidency.

(5) A respectable Vice President (former New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller) was selected.

(6) The U. S. House of Representatives democratically elected a new Speaker of the House (who follows the VP as next in-line to succeed the President of the United States of America (POTUS)).

Given the Trade War, military conflicts, resignation of today’s Speaker, and recent alliance of Russia – China – Syria, perhaps Americans should pursue the best options.

So help US God.

Go Indy Colts !

Three major Dominican saints are celebrated this week.

Thursday, April 28th is the feast of St. Louis Marie Grignion de Montfort (1673-1716). He was ordained in 1700 in France and entered the third order of Dominicans. He preached  the rosary and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary throughout France.

If you are looking forward to a special spiritual journey, pick up the Total Consecration to Jesus Through Mary. The next Preparation period is July 13th for Consecration on the Solemnity of the Assumption of Mary, August 15th.

st catherine of siena

April 29th is the feast of St. Catherine of Siena (1347-1380). She was born the 24th of 25 children in Siena, Italy. She went on to counsel popes and princes in war-torn Northern Italy. She helped to end the Babylonian Captivity when the pope was in Avignon, France. She died in Rome and is buried there in the church, Santa Maria sopra Minerva. We will visit her on our pilgrimage. Her famous work is The Dialogues and she is a Doctor of the Church, one of the first women so honored.

April 30th is the feast of Pope St. Pius V (1504-1572, pope: 1566-1572). He became a Dominican priest in 1528 and taught in Italy for sixteen years. He spoke and wrote against the Protestant reformation and became inquisitor for Como, Italy.

st pius v

Pius V became Cardinal, but fell out of favor with Pope Pius IV. He was elected pope after Pius IV and continued the reform of the Church after the Council of Trent. He is famous for seeing in vision the defeat of Islamic forces in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571.
