    Lots of news floating around about companies that have bilked the government over the CARES act loans, or the paycheck protection loans.
    Here is an airfreight company that took a loan, 170 Million, then laid off thousands of workers.

    Lawmakers want airfreight handler to return $170 million in COVID-19 funds
    Air cargo contractor Swissport USA, which has operations in 16 of the busiest U.S. airports, faces questions from lawmakers for accepting $170.4 million in federal relief funds after laying off thousands of workers.
    In a July 29 letter to U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, three committee leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives contended that the Payroll Support Program (PSP) was intended to save jobs affected by the coronavirus pandemic, “not provide a corporate bailout.”
    Under the CARES Act, they explained, PSP funds were to be used exclusively to pay employee wages, salaries and benefits. “To receive these funds, recipients must refrain from conducting involuntary furloughs or reducing pay rates and benefits until September 30, 2020.”
    Swissport USA was one of 12 airline industry contractors receiving a share of over $728 million in PSP funding. “Yet according to media reports and state agency disclosures, these companies laid off thousands of workers before signing Payroll Support Program agreements with the Treasury Department,” asserted James Clyburn, D-South Carolina, Peter DeFazio, D-Oregon, and Maxine Waters, D-California, in the letter.
    Contained in the story link is a chart showing all the companies involved with the air industry that received loans and still laid off people. Thousands of people !

    I like numbers. Facts as they are sometimes called. If we dismiss all the talk of false positives tests, or false negatives tests, then we should look at the death rate in Florida, over a 10 year period.
    If anyone cares to look at some factual reported death numbers, here is the link to the state of Florida's death count system. All reported deaths, across all types of deaths.
    As one can see, the count remains very steady with slight increases each year.
    So for the last 5 years, total deaths in Florida hover in the low 8 thousand people, each year.
    Chart here: http://www.flhealthcharts.com/FLQUER...eathCount.aspx

    Then we look at just this year so far. Seven full months and the virus is only peaking now in some southern states. Deaths reported just from COVID stands at 6800 people. This number is COVID deaths only, not including normal death counts which means with 5 months to go the death count in Flordia will far exceed any number from the last 10 years.
    So who's kidding who ?
    The state's health department reported 257 Florida resident deaths on Friday, bringing the state death toll to 6,843 residents, with an additional 123 non-resident deaths. Friday's count marks the fourth consecutive day that the state has exceeded its previous highest daily death toll.

    There's a new book about Trump coming out by another Horowitz which might bury this guy in Google searches. It's being pushed hard. Just showing my trust for the whole system anymore. Not too much left anymore
    I'll reply to my own post on Horowitz with this woman who also dealt with the corruption of Fauci, science, vaccines, big Pharma and the government. She was arrested in the 80's dealing with Fauci. Not charged but jailed.
    For those into Monsanto corruption....you might be into this. 26 minutes. Banned by Google and YouTube.
    You have to judge if it's true or not.

    I see and hear that many people don't believe either the extent of the virus, or how dangerous it is.
    Some refer to conspiracy theories. Some feel the medical experts aren't either truthful, or don't know as much as those in the administration.
    What all those folks think doesn't account for the horror stories of those in hospitals attending to the sick.

    Workers Blow the Whistle on Mass Death
    As the coronavirus continues to batter the U.S., the horror stories still sound the same: basic medical supplies nowhere to be found, new patients keep showing up gasping for air, nurses with impossible workloads and back-to-back-to-back shifts, hospital staff with inadequate personal protective equipment (PPE) getting sick.
    Of course, hospitals can lower their costs in a lot of ways that make patient care worse. Tenet, for example, furloughed an astonishing 10% of its staff in March and April. It also stopped contributing to 401(k) retirement accounts, rationed PPE (and threatened to fire employees who brought their own), and slashed hours for its nurses. Some nurses were sent home mid-shift, leaving others to watch sections as big as 20 patients. At a Tenet hospital in Massachusetts, nurses filed more than 50 reports over two weeks in April, documenting specific instances of how the downsizing jeopardized patients. One declared she had “[never] been more ashamed to work” somewhere.
    Meanwhile ... the death panels that one political side claimed would surface if we got universal healthcare ( or medicare for all ) is here.

    Meanwhile, a lawsuit filed by four former DMC nurses claims that, at one point, DMC was so short-staffed that a staggering number of the deceased were in rigor mortis before anyone noticed they weren’t breathing. The staffers allege hospital administrators actively increased the death toll by instructing nurses not to revive patients suspected of having Covid-19.
    I am not guessing. I know a failure of leadership has caused this pandemic to flourish and cause untold thousands of more deaths.
