      (AFP) Two people have tested positive for the new coronavirus after taking part in a pro-Israel lobby group’s conference in Washington which Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and dozens of lawmakers also attended.

      The influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee said in an email to attendees, speakers and congressional offices that the infected pair had traveled from New York to go to the March 1-3 event.

      “We have confirmed that at least two Policy Conference attendees from New York have tested positive for the Coronavirus,” AIPAC said in the message, posted to its Twitter account.

      Officials said on Friday that 22 new cases had been confirmed in New York state, mostly in a Westchester County cluster north of New York City, bringing the total to 44.

      @redcloud and @charles

      Sometimes, I feel like I’m living in a science fiction or alternate history novel. This is definitely one of those times. An administration which doesn’t believe in science, a corrupt Congress bought by a foreign interest, and agents and officials of the foreign government involved get exposed to a pandemic with unfolding implications and unknown pathogenic capability while gathering to celebrate the corrupt political system that finances apartheid in said foreign nation.

      And then the disease rapidly expands in Westchester, one of the wealthiest cities in the country, and will undoubtedly spread in the capital of corrupt Empire, in the ranks of the power elite itself, no less.

      I, a despised member of the leftist working class, a local bureaucrat, and my family will get the disease whether or not the ruling classes do, and I cannot help but feel schadenfreude at the fear which is no doubt spreading among elements of our ruling class even as I type this.

      Wondrous. What will happen next? Who knows, perhaps a version of this:

        Although I did not expect the smallest of the small to become the doomsday device for the Masters of Evil, that the ones who gut public health and safety because they think they can get away with it, are now looking at the possible prospects of being next in line to be quarantined. Perhaps some advances against the virus can be made at their expense.

        If POTUS and VICE POTUS are simultaneously sidelined and McConnell has been infecting his fellow senators. then SOTH maybe takes over until next January.

        Certainly a lot of plutocrats were at that meeting. Well, the virus doesn’t give a damn how much they hoarded.
