Pres Trump Again Asks Pelosi to Pass Standalone $1,200 Stimulus Check Legislation; WSJ: Trump, Covid and Reason, and other C-Virus Updates

Trump again asks Pelosi to pass standalone $1,200 stimulus check legislation:
President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning to reiterate to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi his desire to sign a standalone bill to provide $1,200 stimulus checks to Americans — as the federal government remains locked in a stalemate over coronavirus relief negotiations.
Just 10 hours after first mentioning Pelosi (D-Calif.) in a tweet Tuesday evening, when he expressed interest in a focused relief deal that would just cover the checks, the commander-in-chief circled back.
“Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!” Trump wrote in a retweet of his earlier message, tagging the California Democrat’s account.
“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” the president wrote late Tuesday in his initial post on the matter. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump, Covid and Reason
A new statement by scientists explains how to live with the virus.
President Trump’s tweet Monday “Don’t be afraid of Covid” has invited more criticism that he’s again downplaying the virus. Mr. Trump doesn’t do nuance, and he and his team have often acted recklessly, most prominently at the Rose Garden ceremony announcing Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination. But scientists generally agree with his fundamental point that Americans need to learn to live with the virus.
That’s also the message of a new declaration from scientists that the media are ignoring. Organized by Harvard’s Martin Kulldorff, Sunetra Gupta of Oxford and Stanford’s Jay Bhattacharya, the Great Barrington Declaration recommends that people be allowed to live normally while protecting the vulnerable. The authors are infectious-disease experts, and the statement by our deadline had been signed by more than 2,300 medical and health scientists and 2,500 practitioners, and counting.
They describe their approach as “Focused Protection,” but it’s essentially what Sweden has done and even the World Health Organization is now recommending. Many European leaders including French President Emmanuel Macron are also slowly embracing it, though it still remains heresy on America’s left.
The collateral damage from government lockdowns “include lower childhood vaccination rates, worsening cardiovascular disease outcomes, fewer cancer screenings and deteriorating mental health—leading to greater excess mortality in years to come, with the working class and younger members of society carrying the heaviest burden. Keeping students out of school is a grave injustice,” the declaration says. “Keeping these measures in place until a vaccine is available will cause irreparable damage, with the underprivileged disproportionately harmed.” --->READ MORE HERE
