1. Seattle residents slam ‘Defund the Police’ as ‘radical experiment’ during city budget meeting
Fox News reports: Hundreds of Seattle residents spoke up about proposals to “Defund the police” during a city council budget meeting on Wednesday, according to reports.
The council is considering a plan that could slash the budget of the city’s police department by 50 percent – resulting in layoffs for hundreds of officers – all as Seattle deals with the coronavirus outbreak and frequent riots and other unrest since the May 25 death of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis.
While the “Defund the police” effort was initially popular in the city, opponents of the plan have been growing more vocal, Q13 FOX of Seattle reported.
“Defunding the police is a radical experiment that will hurt the vulnerable,” one member of the public, calling in to the phone-in meeting, told the council, according to Q13 FOX.

DML: I am not politically correct, so I will be blunt in writing how this will all end… Cities like New York, Portland, Seattle, L.A. and so many more will be destroyed. Whites will leave these cities (they’ve already started). They will move in massive numbers to the outskirts known as remote suburbs and mountain areas to get far away from the city folks (aka blacks). Blacks, whether they are good or bad citizens, will be left to live in Detroit-like areas from coast to coast. Eventually, the terrorist group known as Black Lives Matter and all the radical people who sing angry tunes, cause crime, and promote destruction will burn out. Major league sports teams will fold because most blacks will be unemployed because lets be honest, after these past few months who would hire them. The liability is too high. So considering the unemployed can’t afford high ticket prices demand will drop. The BLM movement will lose energy, money, and media focus. When this happens they (BLM) will try to take over the suburbs and mountains where the the whites have made new roots. But it won’t happen because not only will they not be able to afford the long ride to get there, but these areas will be run by conservatives instead of liberals. As a result, cops will be respected and in high demand. They will stop these terrorists from entering the town limits. People who live in these areas know it’s best to fund the police. Sounds like nirvana. Sad it has to come to this, but it will.
2. GOP Rep. Louie Gohmert Says He’s Taking Hydroxychloroquine to Treat Coronavirus
Newsweek reports: Republican Texas Representative Louie Gohmert has said that he will take the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine to treat his asymptomatic COVID-19.
“My doctor and I are all in,” Gohmert said during a Wednesday evening interview with Sean Hannity on FOX News. Gohmert and Hannity discussed Gohmert’s plans to treat his recent COVID-19 diagnosis with the drug during the interview.
“I got a text just before I came on [Fox News] from a friend doctor who just found out he had it, and he started the regimen too—zinc, azithromycin and hydroxychloroquine. And that will start in a day or two, so thank you,” Gohmert continued.

DML: Thank goodness he isn’t listening to Dr. Fauci, which in my opinion means he has a greater chance of survival.
3. Speaker Pelosi mandates wearing masks on House floor after Rep. Gohmert tests positive for COVID-19
USA Today reports: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Wednesday that all members of the House of Representatives would be required to wear masks on the floor, just hours after a Republican who opposed such mandates tested positive for COVID-19.
Pelosi, D-Calif., made the announcement from the House dais, telling members that they will now be required to wear masks on the House floor, in the House halls and in the House office buildings. She said lawmakers could be removed from the floor if they are not wearing a face covering.
“The chair expects all members and staff to adhere to the requirement as a sign of respect for the health, safety and well-being of others present in the chamber,” Pelosi said, adding that a lawmaker not wearing a mask would be considered a “serious breach of decorum.”

4. Fauci suggests goggles, eye shield for better protection against coronavirus
Fox News reports: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, this week said wearing goggles or an eye shield in addition to a face mask would provide more complete protection against the coronavirus, according to a report.
“Theoretically you should protect all of the mucosal surfaces [eyes, nose, mouth], so if you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it,” he said in an interview with ABC News on Instagram Wednesday.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention already recommends wearing a face mask that covers the nose and mouth in public but the virus can also enter through the eyes.
Dr. Anthony Fauci to @DrJAshton: “If you have goggles or an eye shield, you should use it. It’s not universally recommended, but if you really want to be complete, you should probably use it if you can.” https://t.co/SJPZn8fN6F pic.twitter.com/Ml87aBuclI

DML: I have never hated anyone more than I do Fauci, aka the lab rat chasing power hungry loser who self proclaims he is an expert. In fact, if I was standing in front of Obama, Hillary, Alec Baldwin, Michael Moore, Mark Zuckerberg, Dr Fauci, AOC and Nancy Pelosi (8 people) in the hot desert but only had 7 bottles of water, the person who goes thirsty is Fauci.
5. Can coronavirus spread through the air?
AP News reports: The World Health Organization recently acknowledged the possibility that COVID-19 might be spread in the air under certain conditions.
Recent COVID-19 outbreaks in crowded indoor settings — restaurants, nightclubs and choir practices — suggest the virus can hang around in the air long enough to potentially infect others if social distancing measures are not strictly enforced.
Experts say the lack of ventilation in these situations is thought to have contributed to spread, and might have allowed the virus to linger in the air longer than normal.
DML: It can spread through the air. It can’t spread through the air. What’s the truth? The messages are all over the place especially from the WHO and Dr. Fauci. There’s only one thing we know for certain, and that is it’s better to have a strong immune system than a weak immune system, but all we ever hear about are masks, distancing and vaccines. If these 3 things truly worked, why are we so concerned about a second wave? Personally, I think the media and the three letter agencies are selling us voodoo. I’m not listening one bit to these self-proclaimed experts. They keep getting it wrong. I’ll bank on my immune system instead. I don’t need Fauci and his lab rats to explain why my wife and I have been totally healthy for more than a year each. We are constantly in the public and exchange normal greetings with people.
MY PARTING WORDS: Something interesting happened last night. I had exited a restaurant and was in the parking lot. A young couple was walking towards the front door. I did not have on a mask on but the couple was wearing masks. Seeing me coming without a face covering sent them into a tizzy. The fear in their eyes could not be ignored. You’d of thought I was coming at them with an AR-15 full cocked and ready to go. With only 10 feet between us, the man stopped and pulled his lady friend from coming close. In short, the couple retreated backward to get as far from my path as possible. I wanted to yell at them, “What the f*ck is wrong with you!” Instead, I took a different approach. I stopped, smiled, kept my 10 feet distance and removed the back pack from my shoulder. In the front pocket of my back pack I keep my bottle of DML POWER CBD. I opened the top and squeezed 100mg of oil under my tongue. I held it for a few seconds and then swallowed. I then held up the bottle and said, “You should be smart and go to DMLcbd.com and get DML CBD POWER. It can change your life! Not only have I not been sick in 18-months, but I feel great all the time. If nothing else it might help you curb that crazy anxiety.” The guy mumbled something back at me but I couldn’t hear him with the masks on. I responded, “I’m sorry, but I cannot understand what you are saying.” I would have given them my bottle but I didn’t want to break Dr. Fauci’s dumb rule of maintaining 6 feet of distancing.
