NYT being the NYT, Protesting by blocking highways is as dangerous as it sounds: Links 2, July 4, 2020

1. Major slip up even by creepy Joe standards. [FAKE NEWS] he was saying Jill. Its still stupid, but not as senile as it was presented to be.

2. Some of the comments under this pathetic NYT ‘article’ on Trump’s speech gives us some hope. Click through to the tweet and read some of the thread.

3. NY County Issues ‘Costly’ Subpoenas to People for Refusing to Talk to Coronavirus Contact Tracers

Officials in New York’s Rockland County announced on Wednesday that they had issued subpoenas to eight people allegedly infected by the coronavirus for refusing to speak with contact tracers voluntarily.


“The health of our county” will not be “compromised because of ignorance, stupidity, or obstinance,” Ed Day, the county executive, told reporters.


“Failure to comply will be costly: $2,000 per day,” Patricia Rupert, the county’s health commissioner, added, referring to the subpoenas, according to the Hill.


Officials are using the subpoenas to compel the people to talk with the contact tracers about contracting the COVID-19 disease at a June 17 party in Clarkstown, located north of New York City, Rubert said.


She indicated that the eight people had declined interview requests to determine who else they were in contact with and prevent them from further spreading the virus.

(“Failure to comply will be costly: $2,000 per day,” -I can’t decide if this would sound better in a German accent or a Russian one)

4. Interesting tweet in Chinese

?????????? ???????????????????? ??????????????????????? ???????????????????????? ???????????????????????? ?????????????? ?????????????

Google translate puts this as:

Zhou Li, former deputy minister of the International Department


Prepare for the deterioration of Sino-US relations and the full escalation of the struggle


Be prepared for shrinking external demand and disruption of industrial and supply chains


Prepare for the normalization of the new coronavirus epidemic and the long-term coexistence of viruses and humans


Be prepared to get rid of dollar hegemony and gradually realize the decoupling of RMB and USD


Prepare for the global food crisis

  1. That was attempted homicide, to be sure. I am amazed that the women survived. The driver could obviously see that they were on the road and didn’t reduce their speed one iota because his intentions were truly lethal. The driver saw the “protesters” as enemy combatants in an active hot war and took measures to eliminate the bad guys… It’s gotten to that, I guess. Maybe they didn’t want to get their car surrounded and immobilized then get dragged out of it and beaten to death by the communists. How strange…? Must be a fascist…

    • But if he stopped, it would have been him that got hurt. I would not have stopped. We have a right to defend ourselves.

      • We’ve seen what happens when the mob can get at you. Not a pretty story. He probably panicked, as many of us would. You can’t put your vehicle in reverse on a highway. He was stuck in a bad situation.

        BTW, they doxxed him.

        And, the St-Louis lawyer couple were targeted again last night by a massive mob. No private security firm wants to take on a contract with them and police have turned their back also which is understandable since they are into anti-police litigation.

    • The Highway Maintenace Code specifies clear warning signage every hundred yards or so, the appropriate speed to travel and workers wearing high-visability jackets.

      Without it, this video is exactly what I would expect.

      Attempted murder.

      Of the car occupants.

      • “Officials were trying to determine the motive as well as where he got onto the interstate, which had been closed by the state patrol for more than an hour before the women were hit.”

        “Protesters had shut down the interstate for 19 days in a row, Mead said at a press conference.

        The State Patrol responded by closing sections of the interstate to keep drivers and protesters safe.”

        “Summer Taylor, 24, of Seattle and Diaz Love, 32, of Bellingham were in critical condition with multiple injuries, according to Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg.

        Love was filming the protest in a nearly two-hour-long Facebook livestream captioned “Black Femme March takes I-5” when the video ended abruptly; with about 15 seconds left, shouts of “Car!” can be heard as the camera starts to shake before screeching tires and the sound of impact are heard.”

    If the overlords were serious about the coronavirus they wouldn’t have sabotaged hydroxychloroquine and they wouldn’t be fudging the death-toll numbers. It’s a hoax, folks. It can’t be anything else. They could have cut it in half and they chose to let it grow for some reason. Why would they do that if they were on the level? It’s all about making Donald Trump look bad in November. That’s it…

  3. I watched the Seattle crash video a few times. It looks like the driver approached too quickly, and then didn’t really have time to stop or maneuver around the scattering crowd. That swerve which caused him to hit two people looks like it was done in an effort to avoid a direct hit on somebody. He was probably hoping to dodge the direct hit and thread the needle around the others, but he swerved too hard and nailed those two women.

    All in all, it looks like a terrible scene. This is why you keep your ass out of the road, people. Don’t play in traffic and expect it to end well for you.

    • I know how to drive defensively and I would have cut my speed way down the second I saw those two cars parked cross-wise on the highway with the weird activity going on, and the white car had plenty of time to do just that. Then I would have pulled over and sat there for a while going, “Hmmm… I wonder what’s going on here…”. I don’t blame the white car for getting really angry but you just aren’t allowed to go terminating people just because they piss you off. He gunned it into those rioters and he’s going to be seeing the inside of a prison cell, I’m afraid, even though a small evil part of me was going, “Booyah…!”

  4. Guys driving highway speed on a highway he doesn’t know is blocked. Spots three vehicles blocking the lanes then spots a crowd blocking his lane. Swerves right to avoid the crowd and inadvertently plows into two communists still in the middle of the road. Slows down as if to stop but wisely thinks better of it. The guy is innocent and should sue the communists. As far as the injured goes, life is tough, tougher when you are stupid.

    • My thoughts, exactly.
      It’s quite possible one of them has a severed spine.
      That will teach them a good lesson: Do not block a public highway.

  5. Item 4 – Angry Red Dragon spewing fire. They can’t renege on the USA-China trade deal, they would have too much to lose such as unemployment, massive currency devaluation, collapsing stock market… Lighthizer crafted a great agreement, all favoring USA.
    And then… Huawei and TikTok problems.
    So, they go back to spreading viruses around the world.

    • The Wuhan coronavirus may well serve as the forerunner of a known-killer: the release of an H1N1 avian/swine influenza virus.

      And that will surely be engineered for enhanced infectivity and lethality. The demographic it hits will not be limited to non-producttive “eaters”, whose demise may have been seen as a net plus in certain circles.

      One-two punch.
