*WOW POLL: NEARLY 30% OF DEMOCRATS WANT TO REPLACE JOE BIDEN
Barely more than half of Democrats are satisfied with former Vice President Joe Biden as the party’s presidential nominee, a new poll finds. The poll also indicated that nearly a third want to replace him. Only 54% of Democratic voters want the party to keep Biden at the top of its presidential ticket, while 28% want to replace him with another candidate, and 18% remain undecided, according to a poll published Tuesday by Rasmussen. The conservative polling service also found that 92% of Democrats think it’s likely that Biden will remain their nominee and face President Donald Trump in November. The poll was conducted May 10-11 among 1,000 likely voters, and has a margin of error of roughly 3%. Rasmussen’s survey is one of the latest polls suggesting that the Biden campaign may suffer from a lack of enthusiasm, especially among the party’s base. An ABC poll conducted in late March found Biden trailing Trump by 29% among voters who were enthusiastic about supporting their candidate.
*MASSIVE HIT! INDIA’S ECONOMY TO SHRINK BY 45% THIS QUARTER:
India’s economy is set to contract by 45 percent in the second quarter, Goldman Sachs
has forecast in a new report. The world’s biggest democracy has been
hammered by a total lockdown, which brought virtually all economic
activity to a shuddering halt and saw millions of migrant day-rate
workers forced to walk hundreds of miles from big cities back to their
villages. Goldman predicted India’s economy would probably rebound
strongly as restrictions ease in the coming months, but forecast that
India’s gross domestic product will contract by 5 percent over the
financial year, which would mark the deepest recession that India has
ever recorded. Despite tough lockdown measures, India’s infection rates
have continued to escalate as the virus spreads through densely
populated slums and working class neighborhoods.
*BORIS JOHNSON THINKS CORONAVIRUS HOSPITALIZED HIM BECAUSE HE’S CLINICALLY OBESE:
Boris Johnson has reportedly had a revelation since he got out of intensive care: He has to lose some weight. The British prime minister is apparently convinced that the reason he was hit so hard by his coronavirus infection is because he’s very overweight. The Times of London reports that he’s shared his theory with friends since he left hospital, saying that he was around 17 and a half stone (around 245 pounds) at the time of his infection. At 5 foot 9, that would put his body mass index at around 36, meaning he soars above the point at which adults are deemed clinically obese. When discussing the disease, Johnson has reportedly been heard to say: “It’s all right for you thinnies.” The prime minister now believes that Brits need to lose weight to avoid his fate, with a source telling the newspaper: “This virus is here to stay and we’re going to have to live with it. If obesity is the biggest driver after age, we need to be doing more right now to deal with it.”
*WTF? – CANNIBAL PORN STAR FEATURED IN NETFLIX’S “DON’T F**CK WITH CATS” WHO HAS BEEN IN PRISON IN CANADA FOR FIRST DEGREE MURDER AND KILLING KITTENS COULD BE RELEASED DUE TO COVID-19 OUTBREAK:
Cannibal porn star Luka Magnotta is being held at a maximum security prison where an outbreak of COVID-19 could result in inmates being released. The Netflix killer, who was found guilty of first-degree murder for the death of his lover Jun Lin along with charges for killing of cats in 2014, is being held at Port-Cartier prison in Quebec, Canada. 10 inmates have fallen ill with the deadly virus at Port-Cartier where social distancing is almost impossible, while 16 officers are also confirmed to have tested positive with COVID-19, bringing the total cases to 26. Magnotta, 37, who gained newfound international attention after the Netflix hit crime documentary “Don’t F**k With Cats” premiered last year, had boasted about living the high life behind bars at the facility, claiming it was more like being on a college campus.
*MARK CUBAN SAYS HE HIRED SECRET SHOPPERS TO SEE HOW DALLAS BUSINESSES WERE REOPENING: “IT’S NOT GOOD” 96% OF THEM WERE ‘NON-COMPLIANT’
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who’s made national headlines for his charitable work and his opinions during the coronavirus pandemic, says he wanted to see just how Dallas was reopening its economy after retail stores and restaurants were given the go-ahead from Gov. Greg Abbott last week. Those types of businesses, which also included malls and movie theaters, were allowed to reopen last Friday after Abbott issued an executive order. The businesses had to follow certain restrictions, such as opening at a 25% capacity, and social distancing guidelines. However, questions like which businesses would choose to reopen and if they would actually practice social distancing remained for Texas residents. On his Blog Maverick website, Cuban said he looked to answer some of those questions by working with ShiftSmart in order to investigate business reopenings in Dallas using “secret shoppers.”
To put it simply, Cuban said: “It’s not good.”For this project, Cuban said they called about 1,000 retail and restaurant locations based on their popularity on Yelp to see how many businesses were actually reopening that weekend. Of those 1,000 locations, Cuban said ShiftSmart workers performed “physical audits” at about 300 of them to see if they followed the reopening guidelines.From the 300 businesses that were visited, the data Cuban reported shows that about 96% of them were “non-compliant” when it came to mandatory protocols. He said about one-third of those businesses were less than 50% compliant with the protocols.
*MEXICO’S PRESIDENT ORDERS MILITARY ON STREETS TO CURB RISING VIOLENCE:
Mexico’s president has
ordered the armed forces to tackle security on the streets for another
four years, extending a policy he had previously criticized as the
government struggles to curb runaway violence. In a notice published in
the Official Gazette, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador ordered that the Armed Forces (FA) participate “in an extraordinary, regulated and complementary manner with the National Guard”
in public security tasks. The armed forces will be under the command of
the National Guard, the notice said, a military police created after
Lopez Obrador came to the presidency on Dec. 2018. The order will last
until March 2024. The decree means the armed forces will be on Mexican
streets until almost the end of the presidency of Lopez Obrador, a
political veteran who often criticized former President Felipe Calderon for
deploying sailors and soldiers for public security. “His security
strategy is not working and that is why he has had to order with this
decree for the Armed Forces to support public security,” security
specialist Juan Ibarrola told the Milenio
newspaper. Lopez Obrador won office in 2018 vowing to adopt a more
conciliatory security strategy focused on the root causes of crime, in
particular by reducing poverty and corruption.
But the violence has ground on during his first year and half in charge, with a record 34,582 people murdered in 2019.Some 3,000 homicides were recorded in March this year, the second-highest monthly murder tally ever, and the biggest since Lopez Obrador assumed power.
*BEVERLY HILLS RHINOPLASTY SPECIALISTS, ROBERT KOTLER, SCOOPS COVID-19 SCIENTISTS:
As early as March 27, after consulting with medical colleagues, Dr. Kotler advised his patients that “plain, old soap and water” as a nasal “ wash or rinse” could hopefully destroy the CV at its entry point into the body. Dr. Kotler, a UCLA faculty member and former Major, Medical Corps, US Army, likened the struggle with the invading virus to warfare. “Should we not be attacking the enemy in its first hiding place? Here is where we need to establish an accessible first line of defense”, asks Kotler, the inventor of a popular FDA-approved, patented device that allows the patient’s having any nasal and/or sinus surgery to breathe clearly immediately after surgery.
“We may be missing a safe, simple and practical opportunity to destroy the virus before it causes the worst consequence, destruction of the lungs and death. All scientists agree that handwashing with soap works to reduce the likelihood of the virus taking hold in the body. Might soap perform equally well inside the nose?” Soap is effective because each Coronavirus-19 virus wears a fat-laden outer covering. Soap destroys the fatty layer; the virus is disabled and dies. Besides the hands, it can work its magic elsewhere.
“The concept of washing the inside of the nose with soap may seem peculiar to many, but for not for nasal surgeons. It’s routine, as part of the preparation for cosmetic and breathing operations to reduce the chance of infection. Soap causes no damage to the nasal interior. Soap is to viruses what antibiotics are to bacteria.”
The First Big Clue To Confirm Dr. Kotler’s Thesis: Loss of Smell. The Olfactory Bulb Transmits Smell to the Brain To Kotler, the first clinical evidence to validate his concept that the virus needed to be attacked at the source of entrance and nesting, the nasal cavities, was the reported loss of smell and taste as early symptom. Learn more Here. On April 22, a medical journal research paper confirmed the observation. Further study and research-supported Kotler’s thesis that flushing the nasal passages could destroy the virus and, at the least, weaken the attack on the body.
