Wednesday night owls: Sen. Warren blasts Trump regime for outbidding states on medical supplies

Night Owls is a themed open thread at Daily Kos. Julia Conley at Common Dreams writes—'Massachusetts Is Not Happy': Warren Condemns Trump for Outbidding States, Seizing Key Medical Supplies: Sen. Elizabeth Warren is demanding to know why the Trump administration earlier this month seized at least two shipments of badly-needed medical supplies to fight the coronavirus pandemic headed for her state of Massachusetts and accused the federal government of continually outbidding states as officials try to procure life-saving equipment.

Michigan man accidentally shoots himself in the leg with gun he purchased during coronavirus panic

Stupid decisions lead to stupid outcomes. A Michigan man accidentally shot himself in the leg with a gun he says he purchased to protect himself during the COVID-19 pandemic chaos. The man was reportedly treated at a hospital in Battle Creek, where he told police that someone had shot him during an argument. Upon further investigation, the police discovered that he had accidentally shot himself in his living room. The man was subsequently arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm and “reckless discharge of a weapon.” The NRA and other insecure gun profiteers have been successful in getting some states, like Michigan, to deem gun sellers “essential” during stay-at-home orders. The classic reasoning from the right wing of our political spectrum is that while there is nothing to worry about with the novel coronavirus—that it’s just like the flu and no one should panic—we should make sure that people have access to guns in case we need to panic due to some poorly defined apocalypse. Of course, nothing is going to happen and there’s no need to panic … but get a gun just in case. Guns don’t kill people. People holding guns who are afraid and making bad decisions kill people.

Spring breakers return to Austin with fond memories and positive results for COVID-19

In another case of spring break gone wild, a group of young adults from Texas came back from spring break with some rough news: They tested positive for coronavirus. About 70 adults in their 20s returned from a spring break trip in Mexico on March 19. Twenty-eight from the University of Texas at Austin have tested positive for COVID-19 since their return, health officials confirmed on Tuesday. According to the Austin Public Health Department, the group had departed together in a chartered plane, but some flew back on separate commercial flights. While four of the confirmed cases did not present any symptoms before testing positive, “dozens more are under public health investigation,” the department said. Mexico was not under a federal travel advisory while the spring breakers were gone; however, city officials said Austin residents should abide by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) travel guidelines that specify that individuals should refrain from all unnecessary international travel. The officials noted that this message should be applied to all ages and they encourage individuals to stay home. “A leisure vacation of any kind is not considered essential,” health officials said. In a statement, the Austin city health department confirmed that it has contacted every spring break attendee on the chartered plane after receiving flight manifests from the CDC. In addition, the agency confirmed that all “28 confirmed cases are self-isolating at this time,” while others are being monitored and tested.

When it comes to packing the federal courts, McConnell and Trump have no shame—and no principles

Focusing on the long-term—especially about matters of governmental and political process—isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do in the middle of a pandemic. However, Republicans never seem to think it’s the wrong time to push every button made available to them in their quest to gain as much power as possible. No matter what constitutional or historical norms they have to trample on, Donald Trump and his party are determined to create a conservative judiciary at the federal level that will endure for a quarter-century or more. Let’s start, however, with what’s going on in 2020. Moscow Mitch—Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, that is—has been doing things the Founders likely never envisioned when they wrote our Constitution. He, along with allies, have been making calls to aging conservative jurists on the federal courts, reminding them that the clock is ticking—on Trump’s time in the White House, on the Republicans’ hold on the Senate, and, most appropriately given his embrace of the nickname “Grim Reaper,” on their very lives. McConnell has been urging them to all retire ASAP so that he and The Man Who Lost The Popular Vote can put as many young whipper-snappers as possible into lifetime seats on the federal bench, seats they’ll hold long past a Sasha Obama presidency.

Biden honors doctors, nurses, first responders in new video

Former Vice President Joe Biden followed up his video using Donald Trump's own words to devastating effect with another coronavirus-themed ad. After the first one showed Trump’s lack of leadership in the crisis, a new video features Biden talking about how he would lead. It’s … different from Trump’s focus on Donald Trump. “I couldn’t be prouder of the American people and how they’re responding. We’re coming together, stepping up. You can see it all across the nation—ordinary Americans doing extraordinary things,” Biden says. He goes on to highlight the need for protective equipment, saying of health care workers and first responders: “This is a war and these are our soldiers. As president, I wouldn’t send an American soldier anywhere in the world without the equipment and protection they need—we should not do any less for the heroes on the front lines in this battle we’re in now.”

Caught in another lie: Trump claims COVID-19 testing isn't 'a problem' but quicker test on the way

President Donald Trump is covering his eyes again and telling people he doesn’t see a problem. This time, he told governors via conference call regarding the coronavirus Monday that he had not “heard about testing in weeks,” according to The New York Times. “We’ve tested more now than any nation in the world,” Trump said, according to the newspaper.” Even though he claimed he hadn’t “heard about testing being a problem,” he also reportedly said, ”we’ve got these great tests and we’re coming out with a faster one this week.” So to recap, Trump sees nothing wrong with what the Times calls “a chronic lack of kits to screen people,” but just for kicks, his administration is coming out with new tests anyway. It’s no wonder why governors actually tracking COVID-19 response in their states called BS.

COVID-19 news: Trump gaslights America, police close down reopened Hobby Lobby stores

Donald Trump's delays in responding to the building wave of a COVID-19 pandemic have now created a «best case» scenario of between 100,000—240,000 American deaths, according to government experts. The result: A new push by Donald Trump to insist that he had never downplayed the virus, despite many weeks and videotaped speeches in which Trump did exactly that. Already supported by Mike Pence and other fawning officials, it will be the greatest test yet of the administration's gaslighting strategies—a new claim that the virus killing family members, neighbors and friends was being taken seriously all along, despite weeks of Fox News coverage directly showing, and arguing for, the opposite.

Police close some Hobby Lobby locations after stores defy state order and reopen during pandemic

As the United States scrambles to handle the novel coronavirus pandemic, nonessential businesses have been closing across the nation. In an effort to minimize large crowds and the number of people being exposed (or exposing others), businesses like movie theaters, spas, and gyms have been shuttering. While small businesses and service workers are understandably worried about the financial blow, closures make sense in terms of public health. Hobby Lobby, an arts and crafts chain, has started reopening stores—including in states that have orders against it, as reported by Business Insider. Now the police, as well as the local health department, are getting involved.

It’s census time. Here’s what it does, why it’s important, and what to expect amid COVID-19

Ever wonder how resources were allocated in your community? Or maybe why there are not enough hospital beds in the region where you reside? The census plays a big role in how state and local governments make decisions and how the federal government allocates funds. There are billions of dollars in federal funding available for communities at stake. The census occurs every 10 years on April 1. It is an important reference date for counting people based on where they are living or usually residing as of that day. At this time, people living in the U.S. & U.S. territories have the opportunity to help inform and improve on the decisions being made by federal, state, and local governments about their communities.

California's SF Bay Area nailed coronavirus response, everyone should heed its lessons

Meet a real American hero, Sarah Cody. She is Santa Clara County’s (San Jose) Public Health Officer, and she was the individual who convinced seven San Francisco Bay Area counties  to shut down March 16. Those counties were the areas around San Francisco, Silicon Valley, San Jose, and Oakland/Berkeley, with a population of around 7 million. ”She had just gotten off the phone with health officers Tomas Aragon from San Francisco and Morrow from San Mateo County. They debated the race-against-time decision, the consequences for faltering — the kinds of stuff of Hollywood scripts,” reported the San Jose Mercury News. “They compared the trend lines of COVID-19 cases in the Bay Area with Italy’s a week and a half earlier, just before the situation there turned dire. If they didn’t take bold action, the Bay Area could be next. ‘It was clear to me already how quickly it was moving, and that’s what gave me a sense of urgency,’ Cody said. ‘We just needed to embrace the risk and do it.’” Because of her actions, the San Francisco region appears to have its COVID-19 problem under control (furiously knocking on wood), while parts of the country burn. Meanwhile, places like Texas and Florida refuse to learn the lessons.

Coronavirus myths: 'I had it back in January'

In terms of the most circulated myths concerning the 2019 novel coronavirus, this one may be the most persistent, the most widespread, and the one that more than any other fills up my inbox after every post: The idea that you, your friends, and your relatives had the disease, undiagnosed, weeks ago. The corollary of this idea is one that’s still being spread by supposed experts and regularly carried by the media: the idea that the number of cases is being drastically underreported and the real number of cases out there is 10 times what we’re logging, except those cases have few to no symptoms. It’s understandable why these paired myths keep circulating: They’re comforting. They punch every button and scratch every itch on the “please make me feel better” list. But they’re not just wrong, they’re wrong-headed in a way that makes them dangerous.

Trump creates roadblock to Social Security beneficiaries, veterans from receiving $1,200 payment

Donald Trump absolutely cannot be just a not shitty, petty person. His administration is creating barriers to Social Security beneficiaries, disabled people who have Supplemental Security Income, and veterans with pensions trying to get their $1,200 payments under the CARES Act, the coronavirus stimulus bill passed last week. These people don't normally file returns, they don't have income that requires it. But under IRS guidelines just released, they announced that these people will have to file to get the payments. «This is outrageous,» Nancy Altman, President of Social Security Works said in an emailed statement. «The $1200 payments could easily be added automatically to the benefits these people already receive every month. The CARES Act specifically gives the Treasury Department the authority to do so.»

Hospitals to doctors and nurses: Shut up about equipment shortages or you're fired

Hospital staff have been frantically trying to get the word out: They are slammed with COVID-19 patients and they don’t have enough personal protective equipment to handle all the patients safely. But in some cases the effort to let the public know the severity of the situation is running up against hospital administrators who want to muzzle front-line healthcare workers, Bloomberg reports. An emergency room doctor in Washington state was fired after doing a newspaper interview about inadequate protective gear and testing. NYU Langone Health has told workers that talking to the media without permission could cost them their jobs. And in Chicago, a nurse was fired for emailing her colleagues—not even the media—about wanting better protective gear.
