Kasich to speak at Democratic Convention on behalf of Biden


Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is expected to speak on behalf of former Vice President Joe Biden at the Democratic National Convention next month.

Itís unclear if Kasich will explicitly endorse the presumptive Democratic nominee when he speaks at the convention. But the expected remarks would amount to a major show of support for Biden by a lifelong Republican who rose to political prominence amid the Tea Party movement a decade ago.

The plans were first reported on Monday by The Associated Press. Spokespeople for Bidenís campaign and the Democratic National Committee did not immediately respond to The Hillís request for comment.

Kasich, who unsuccessfully ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, has been fiercely critical of President Trump, going as far as to call for his impeachment last year.

Kasichís expected speech on Bidenís behalf could also give the former vice president a boost in Ohio, a longtime swing state that has increasingly moved in Republicansí favor in recent years. During his 2016 presidential bid, Ohio was the only state Kasich won.

Kasich isnít the only Republican supporting Bidenís campaign to oust Trump in November. A handful of prominent Republicans founded a political action committee, The Lincoln Project, late last year to oppose the presidentís reelection. The group has spent heavily on advertising criticizing Trump in recent months.


I'm a simple math kind of girl.... If John Kasich can sway 10,000 independent or Republican voters in Ohio to vote for Joe Biden then Joe Biden wins Ohio. If Joe Biden wins Ohio he becomes the next President of the United States. Simple math.

Congressman John Lewis's Congressional Seat...

I apologize if this too sensative...because it is...but I keep thinking...What will happen to his congressional seat? Gov. Kemp is a trumpian republican...does he fill the seat? Do we have a Democrat to run in the Georgia 5th District...? Hard to keep tabs on everything...

Again, I apologise for poor timing...RIP Congressman Lewis...

Lincoln Project Ads!

These ads kick butt! They are smart, to the point in a brief minute or less...I sure hope we will see more tough, direct ads from our Democrats come September...It really wouldn't hurt to see more Biden ads soon that are equal to the quality of the Lincoln Project...

I know we ...me, I need to chill and be patient...take a leap of faith here...

**** Donald Trump now lives at:

1600 Black Lives Matters Plaza NW,
Washington, DC 20500

George Floyd's Autopsy Report saying Positive for COVID-19

Here comes the spin cycle to free up the murdering Minneapolis officers now...this really is to be expected...Certainly does not help with the healing...Just sharing...Let's not let them minimize and distract from the actual murdering knee on the neck technique. Ö


It is time for a National Board of Police Officers like a Board of Nursing...

I use the Nursing Board as their focus is on safe practice of all nurses and protection of the PUBLIC as first line of Standard....they must be Licensed and the Licenses is subject to Board "Actions" if their nursing practice falls below the standard of care as defined by the Nursing Board...

Every US State has a Nursing Board and their is a National Board of Nursing...I believe this standards if equally designed to a Nursing Board can indeed curve this police violence...

I have to go to work now....I can elaborate more if needed...

What say you? We have lots of Nurses here at DU....

2020 Academy Awards...Idea...

I think, since the movies are not being released, no real theater/ box office showings....Add a category for Performances that should of won and Academy Award for the main groups...sometimes, these things need time to be digested...some real fantastic acting out there that deserves recognition...Here is the perfect opportunity.

Example...Val Kilmer for Tombstone as Doc Holliday...should of won a best supporting actor award...

Include movies too...

I am unaware of ANY vaccine produced that treated ANY Corona Virus ever...

We are talking, discussing, anticipating and being promised a vaccine soon for the COVID-19 corona virus...tRump Team saying by January..

I did a little research and can NOT find where there has ever been a vaccine for coronavirus...ever....Lots of ongoing clinical trails...no vaccine... COVID-19 our current lethal virus is in the Coronavirus Family Strain... so, that is why I went searching for any past related success for a vaccine...

If this is the case...WHY are we Not getting more clarification about the potential for a COVID-19 vaccine to actually be a FIRST ever Coronavirus vaccine? I

I really think way too much false hope for a vaccine by January is grossly misleading and inappropriate...More like manipulation...

Here is a link to one article I found.... 4-5 coronavirus affect humans..no vaccine yet...see list below.



Coronaviruses without preventive vaccines are the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV), and the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19 disease in humans.

As of May 14, 2020, the U.S. FDA has not approved any preventive or therapeutic vaccines for use against the SARS, MERS, or SARS-CoV-2 coronaviruses. However, over 300 clinical studies are seeking participants to evaluate vaccine candidates.... END>

Then from the NIH Link:


Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that usually cause mild to moderate upper-respiratory tract illnesses, like the common cold. However, three new coronaviruses have emerged from animal reservoirs over the past two decades to cause serious and widespread illness and death.

There are hundreds of coronaviruses, most of which circulate among such animals as pigs, camels, bats and cats. Sometimes those viruses jump to humansócalled a spillover eventóand can cause disease. Four of the seven known coronaviruses that sicken people cause only mild to moderate disease. Three can cause more serious, even fatal, disease. SARS coronavirus (SARS-CoV) emerged in November 2002 and caused severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). That virus disappeared by 2004. Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) is caused by the MERS coronavirus (MERS-CoV). Transmitted from an animal reservoir in camels, MERS was identified in September 2012 and continues to cause sporadic and localized outbreaks. The third novel coronavirus to emerge in this century is called SARS-CoV-2. It causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), which emerged from China in December 2019 and was declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020.

Building on previous research on SARS and MERS, NIAID scientists and grantees are well positioned to rapidly develop COVID-19 diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines. These projects include conducting basic research to understand how the virus infects cells and causes disease, and what interventions can prevent and stop the spread of disease.... END>

Ohio citizens are quickly slipping away from COVID-19 Protocols.

Yesterday, as an RN, I was doing a home visit on a retired Veteran...I was donning double surgical mask and gown, disinfected work surface, equipment pre-post accessing client, hand washing/ hand sanitizer.. Ö. A knock came to the door, the wife answered ...she is early 70's. We were in the kitchen and I heard the wife state loudly, " We don't want anything, No, not now"...twice she said this...so, I get up and address the concerns...At first, wife said she thought it was a Census Taker...

It was someone going door-to-door, didn't flash ID, wanting to take a survey... neat looking young fella in mid to late 20's. NO MASK was my first red flag alert...I step in between client's wife and fella dressed in my COVID-19 garb, who then stepped back on the porch...I said, "Where is your mask? You need to put it on now". I said this 3 times, quickly and he said, " I just need to go over this survey it won't take long"...I said," No mask, no survey " and slammed the door...

The wife and I watched from the window as he left...he walked down the street....going to the next house.

SO, now we have door-to-door survey takers going house to house without any COVID-19 Precautions! None!... They are potential vectors for COVID-19 and spreading COVIDS! Insane! I shake my head, knowing that this is now contaminating this neighborhood...

I have been teaching all my clients and their families the COVID-19 Precautions...yet, even an unsuspecting event can pop-up and cause havoc! I share this so that others who are doing their best can still be blindsided by the ignorant deniers.

What if it is all a LIE? What if the White House Lied and No ONE really tested POSITVIE for COVIDS?

No illness just reports of positives...Gee, this really takes on the news cycle with now, tRump in a Rose Garden lie fest as I type...I will believe it when we have folks on a ventilator.

He is making this a center piece story tool...just as if it was a TV script.

What say you folks...?

Oh, never heard anything about Ron Paul's positive...none of them hospitalized, just claiming self quarantined.

It is suspicious..
