    Many of us have criticized the Republicans for failing to take early, aggressive action in response to the Trump Virus pandemic (aka COVID-19 or novel coronavirus).

    Now it turns out that at least five Republicans (maybe more to be uncovered?) DID take early aggressive action in response to the Trump Virus — but it was to protect themselves, not us. They sold off stocks in companies likely to be hit hard and, in at least one case, Kelly Loeffler of Georgia, bought stocks in a company that makes teleconferencing software and equipment, the same day they had a classified briefing on the seriousness of the pandemic.

    Loeffler is particularly insidious. This brand new senator, can hardly blame naïveté. Before being recently appointed senator, she was the CEO of a financial services company and she is currently married to Jeffrey Sprecher, the CHAIRMAN OF THE NEW YORK STOCK EXCHANGE.

    Insider trading is a felony and all involved should be prosecuted. They can occupy Martha Stewart’s old cell.

    One Democrat, Senator Dianne Feinstein from my state of California, is also implicated.

    She claims that all investments were handled by a blind trust and that, while she is on the intelligence committee and was scheduled the attend the meeting, a last-minute schedule conflict prevented her from doing so and she was not present for the classified briefing. If that is true, that may exonerate her, but if she is found to be guilty, she should also resign and be prosecuted and maybe we can prevail upon Gov. Gavin Newsom to appoint ADAM SCHIFF to fill her seat.

    I think I get it, but for me it just doesn’t work. Even Jones misses my address from time to time, I guess.

    Interestingly, back on September 11, 2001, I saw 9/11 as the new Pearl Harbor attack of the new century; now, I see the COVID-19 pandemic as the 9/11 of today! If there is a lesson to these events, is to never get too confident with ourselves and prepare for the worst. But instead, here we are again!

    Clay, your toon today explains it all very succinctly, even those who don’t understand insider information should get it.

    It is not by accident that senators get very rich(er) while in office.

    As I have said before , any “public servant” who used covid info for personal gain should be hung by the neck until dead.

    Possibly this toon is over the top, but harsh criticism of contemptible people is theoretically one way to improve the rest of us……It’s hard to believe Moscow Mitch didn’t also do a little insider trading—waiting for that shoe to drop.

    You don’t sell stock in a building, you take out a terrorism insurance policy.

    Sep 14, 2016 – World Trade Center leaseholder Larry Silverstein bought terrorism insurance … Silverstein took out an insurance plan that ‘fortuitously’ covered terrorism. After 9/11, Silverstein took the insurance company to court.

    I understand the analogy. I believe, however, something a little less horrific than the fate of the Twin Towers and those lost therein and/or who are still dying painfully and too soon, could have been used.

    While I agree with well-earned dig, it’s still too soon for me. I don’t think there will ever be enough distance from the towers.
