The coronavirus that started in China and has killed more than a dozen people in Washington state has made its way to Burlington County, New Jersey. Much of the news has been dominated by reports of its spread, how it may effect us over the next few weeks or months and how our government and its agencies are handling it. Right now we are experiencing a bit of uncertainty and it has caused the stock market to tumble. Not sure how it will all turn out!
On the hopeful side, the moderate side of the democratic primary consolidated in what seemed like an instantaneous flash. Biden was performing poorly in the early primaries and the moderate voters were floating between Bloomberg, Buttigieg, Klobuchar and maybe even Warren. Then South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn in an emotional speech endorsed Biden. As a result, Biden won South Carolina and the momentum carried into Super Tuesday and made Biden the new frontrunner. Then Bloomberg, Buttigieg, Klobuchar and Warren suspended their campaigns leaving only Biden and Sanders. Now moderate democrats have a focus and can join together to elect Biden and defeat Impeached President Trump and return to normalcy, decency and integrity.
On another hopeful, positive, note, U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton rebuked Attorney General William Barr’s handling of the Mueller Report questioning his “principal conclusions” letter and whether it was calculated to help Trump politically. The day that he delivered that letter to the public left me bewildered. It was an obvious coverup of the facts laid out in the Mueller Report and it left me wondering how can the head of the ‘justice’ department derail a legitimate report that should hold the president accountable? I am hopeful the truth will win!
All of this week’s news, gave us a long-needed break from endless coverage of Impeached President Trump’s antics, half-truths and outright lies. Let’s pray for the good health of all!
