A U.S. Senator from Vermont refused to say whether he believed Vanessa Tyson, the woman who accused Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault.
“Sen. Bernie Sanders will not say if he believes VA Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax’s accuser…” Tweeted Daily Caller’s Henry Rogers, attaching a video:

Sanders, a bona fide member of the #BelieveAllWomen club during the confirmation process of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh last year, appears not to have re-upped his membership in 2019.
“If Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed to the Supreme Court it will have a profoundly negative effect on workers’ rights, women’s rights and voting rights for decades to come. We must do everything we can to stop this nomination,” he Tweeted.

“We must fight to make certain that women throughout the country have the right to control their own bodies. We need to stand up for Roe v. Wade now more than ever and stand together to defeat Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination,” he Tweeted later.

“Last week Dr. Ford showed tremendous courage as did many survivors across the nation as we grapple with issues that are long overdue in addressing. We must continue to confront these issues and that begins with defeating Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination,” he Tweeted even later.

The sanctimony went on and on. But now that a powerful Democrat has been accused of such misgivings, Sanders is silent.
Is it simply because of party affiliation, or is it because Kavanaugh’s accuser was white, and Tyson is a person of color?
The world may never know.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April
It’s a aspiration, not a plan.
House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.
“Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”
Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.
“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.”
Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.
It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
