Dallas Morning News reports that Trump had Barr bring in people (with no markings/insignia) from Texas prisons.  In particular, some from Beaumont, TX, where 5 employees have been tested positive for covid-19.  (Infection rates are high among inmates in prisons.)

So what Trump/Barr is doing is the 21st century version of sending smallpox blankets to the Native Americans.  Sending covid infected officers to DC - none of whom were wearing masks - to try to infect the crowds!  

Trumpers gotta be so proud!   They certainly have taken us back to the time when they thought America was great...  Genocide.  Lynchings.  Extermination.  Similar police brutalization against people.

Trump To Start Campaign Rallies On Juneteenth In Tulsa, Oklahoma, Where Coronavirus Cases Are Spiking

Amid a new wave of coronavirus cases in many states and protests against police brutality, President Trump announced Wednesday that he will resume his campaign rallies on June 19 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, located in a county that's seeing coronavirus infections spiking dramatically.

It'll be Trump's first rally since March 2, with the resumption of his free-wheeling live events coming amid the president's flailing approval ratings and poor head-to-head performance in polls against presumptive Democratic candidate Vice President Joe Biden.

During the pandemic, Trump compensated for his inability to hold in-person events with elongated, televised White House briefings, and later used official visits to manufacturing facilities in swing states as pseudo campaign stops.

Tulsa County on Tuesday reported its largest one-day increase in confirmed cases, beating its previous record at the end of April and bringing the total in the county to 1,261 cases.

The rally will also take place on Juneteenth, a day commemorating the end of slavery in the U.S., and around two weeks removed from the 99th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre, when a white mob destroyed the prospering "Black Wall Street" neighborhood of Greenwood and killed as many as 300 black people.

Wow! That's huge news... 13 stories is impressive! Could you send the link to see the designs?

Look under “Supporting Docs” to find the full plans. It includes full floor plans for all 13 floors.

Thought this deserved a place in this thread

Proposals for the TDA lot at Cameron & Main (NW Corner).  Does anyone have additional info on the applicants?  I prefer the first one but would be fine with either, I can't stand that eyesore of a block.

The plan is online on the permitting site under BLDC-011932-2018 (yes it’s been available for 21 months). It’s a mixed use development with 3 levels of underground parking, retail storefronts on first floor along Boulder, office space on first 3-4 levels, and a 13 story residential tower in the center of the block. My understanding is that it’s intended as affordable, workforce housing. Architecture by Lilly Architects.

Wow! That's huge news... 13 stories is impressive! Could you send the link to see the designs?

Both projects will drastically change that part of the area.

If you are talking north of Cameron between Boulder and Main, Tulsa Parking Authority has an RFP out for that lot. Saw this shared on FB with renderings of two bids:

Either of those would be great, but that second one looks phenomenal. Something about the mix of Mid-Century Modern styles, lighting and the angle created from the parking garage ramp make it look so good. I would be thrilled to see something like that downtown, especially in the Arts District.

Looks amazing will totally change the feel of that stretch of Boulder.  Would love to see something similar on the corners at Main & Cameron to tie into this.

Im seeing where a developer has trucked in tons of soil (and what looks like chat) to raise the grade of a cleared lot in my area by several feet.
I thought I read here that significant changes to drainage and hydrology required city approval, especially when the new grade is about four feet from neighbors fences.  Does that sound like a discussion anyone remembers?


Should definitely call the city.   There is something very wrong with that.
