When will the residents of Sussex County rise up and demand the truth from the OOO? After two deaths in Santa Clara County the health officials reviewed them specifically checking if COVID-19 was the cause of death. COVID-19 was the culprit.


These were the earliest cases in the U.S. County health officials immediately recognized the threat and using their power ordered residents to stay in place. As a result, the California Bay Area has the lowest rate of COVID-19 in the country. Its residents were told the truth. Its hospitals were able to handle the cases, not being overloaded and the staff not sacrificing their lives and that of their loved ones.


Contrast that with the Occupant of the Oval Office (OOO) that doesn't want to hear its own health officials tell the truth. What is that truth? We have a worldwide pandemic, that we, the U.S., have to do our share of the battle, that we have politicians seeking to hide the truth for their own political interests, that we have the OOO pushing hydroxychloroquine, Lysol and Clorox that does not help patients but appears to be killing even more than no treatment at all, that we have dedicated scientists risking their professional career to tell the truth only to be trampled upon, that we have the OOO and his cronies seeking to direct contracts to their friends, even if not qualified.


Want more? We have Don Jr. seeking to renegotiate the 60-year lease to the Trump Hotel near the White House because the alleged billionaire is losing money from a crisis that he and his sycophants have exacerbated.


Wake up and shout out: "I'm not gonna take it anymore!"


There are a few honest Republicans, but neither Trump nor McConnell.
