Hello. How are you? greetings to all of you who kindly listen to me. I send you greetings to all of you wherever you are in this vast, enormous and beautiful continent of the Americas, wherever you friend, are right now, from the northern part of Canada to the southern tip of Chile, there in the land of fire, Greetings. I am Francisco Chaparro, and this is Sin Limits. A PuraVidaCommunity production. Well… We are only 73 days away from the general election to select the next president of the United States. The intensity of the presidential campaigns is letting us feel the importance of what is on the table. From where I see it, it seems that the times we live in will be remembered as a season of great suffering, of social challenge on the one hand, and of political tension as no living person remembers. This fall and winter may bring more pain and deaths according to several people with knowledge and experience of other pandemics. Sadly, as a nation, we have done not badly, but pathetically. The politicization of general aspects related to personal security such as the simple gesture of wearing a mask and an early, early reopening of various sectors of the economy in various states at the hands of inept and servile politicians were key factors in preventing the nation from being ahead in the world in this particular matter. In fact, we are one of the worst countries when we talk about how the pandemic has been managed. It is clearly clear that when the head of a country, like this one, is in the hands of an inept, uneducated person, that when the leader of the country has had to pay a friend to take an exam on his behalf to being able to enter an institution of study, a school, the question is, what can be expected of this individual? Nothing! We wonder if there is a country in the American continent with leaders of value, of true national value for their country, with an authentic and honest patriotic value! After Mr. Justin Trudeau of Canada and with some reservations, who else can be on the list of patriots and honest rulers in the Americas? Here in the United States, the pandemic situation is bad and according to Mr. Michael Osterholm, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy at the University of Minnesota, one of the most credited people is to speak to the Regarding this country, he said in a CNN interview that the United States "is really starting to get to the big part of the problem." He went on to say, "When schools start at both the high school and college levels, we believe that we will see an explosion of cases in September that will far exceed what we saw after Memorial Day." "And that this is going to continue to increase, higher and higher, in terms of numbers." Dr. Osterholm wrote an essay that was published recently in August which is titled: Here I explain how to eliminate the virus until the vaccines arrive. To save lives and save the economy, we need another national shutdown! The advice is good, necessary but politically incorrect and even offensive in the eyes of thousands of people across the country! The situation necessarily invites us to ask what is next in the life of this pandemic? If we listen to Dr. Osterholm and Dr. Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx among others, the situation does not look good. Recommendations, wherever you are: Wear your mask, maintain social distance; no less than six feet (two meters), continue to wash your hands frequently, do not entertain friends, do not attend meetings, open spaces offer less risk than closed spaces, remember not to touch your face without first cleaning your hands. On the other hand, vaccines are on the way, but they do not arrive for several months. Dr. Fauci speaks of that at the national level it is until the end of 2021 that we can all have access to a reliable vaccine. As I mentioned in previous messages, Russia and China are at the forefront of the race for the Covid-19 vaccine. China has offered huge amounts of dollars in credit to Latin America in the purchase of vaccines against the Novel Coronavirus. Regarding the vaccine for this 2020-2021 against another of the coronaviruses, influenza, there are two new vaccines authorized for use during the 2020-2021 influenza season. The first is a high dose quadrivalent vaccine licensed for use in adults 65 years of age and older. This vaccine will replace the previously licensed high dose trivalent vaccine. Friend, if you are in this segment of 65 years of age and older, the CDC recommends that you get this vaccine, it is available now. With respect to the vaccine that we all hope against the Novel Coronavirus, in this war, recently the World Health Organization (WHO) asked its member countries for solidarity to join and thus guarantee everyone access to the vaccine and go against the nationalism of this vaccine. A well-intentioned message that the response from countries with economic and industrial power in this race remains to be seen. Mr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the United Nations Organization, said that "We must prevent vaccine nationalism" and invites all members of the organization to join a global access mechanism for the vaccine against Covid-19, known by the name of COVAX. Hopefully, Mr. Ghebreyesus' project and initiative will be well received by at least 90% of the world's countries. Regarding children and young people in this Novel Coronavirus pandemic in the country; Nearly 100,000 of them tested positive for the coronavirus in the last two weeks of July, according to a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Just over 97,000 children tested positive for the coronavirus from July 16 to July 30, according to the association. Imagine that as students from Alabama, Texas, and Kentucky return to classrooms, the state of Georgia closes schools due to an increase in COVID. It is incredible the lack of coordination at the national level that proposes a national plan offering, among many other things, a coordination of both human and material resources, events, logistics and of course defining objectives to be achieved. As the voice of the main leader of the nation is null, the states act as autonomous entities following a path defined by the political interests of their leaders. No more no less. The situation is not only sad but heartbreaking. By this time the United States should be at its best, in its best shape and reopening its entire economy. However, contrary to what I am telling you, the country is on the way to experiencing another total closure. At least this is the recommendation of the experts. In the field of the most outstanding events of the country's politics, this week we have had several events of historical magnitude. For all of us that are living in this moment, it is important not to miss the opportunity to recognize what is happening around us. First, I tell you what we have all seen, a woman of ethnic origins from India and Jamaica is nominated for the position of Vice President of the United States by the Democratic political party. This fact breaks with two political and even social barriers never crossed before. First, a woman occupying this position in a political party and second, a woman, but not just any woman, but a black woman. Whatever your political affiliation, friend, this event is truly historic, and I invite you to recognize the magnitude of this fact. Kamala Devi Harris is the person nominated for the vice presidency of the country. She was born in the state of California on October 20, 1964 in Oakland, California. Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, (hopefully and she's pronouncing it right) was a biologist whose work on the progesterone receptor gene spurred work on breast cancer research. Ms. Gopalan came to the United States from India in 1959 as a graduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, and received a doctorate in endocrinology in 1964. On the other hand, Mrs. Kamala Harris's father, Mr. Donald J. Harris, is an emeritus professor of economics at Stanford University. He came to the United States from British Jamaica in 1961 for postgraduate studies at Berkeley and received a doctorate in economics in 1966. The life of Mrs. Harris is long, of the most outstanding I tell you this: She became the San Francisco District Attorney winning the elections of 2007. She also became the California Attorney General from 2010 to 2014, winning the 2010 elections. She won the elections for the U.S. Senate in 2016, becoming a United States Senator for California. She launches into the 2020 presidential campaign and today is the Democratic party's vice-presidential candidate for these 2020 elections A little beyond amazing. I recommend that you read some excerpt from the biography of Mrs. Kamala Harris. I assure you that you will admire her career. During the week there were three days of the political convention of the Democratic party. Once again, apart from the political affiliation that you embrace, the three days that the event lasted, it was a display of admirable technical talent. Regardless of whether some of the segments were better than others, the technical display that allowed dozens of people to participate, all remotely articulated, was simply to be admired! The last day and last event of the convention was the acceptance of Mr. Joe Biden to the nomination for the presidency of the United States. His acceptance speech was undoubtedly one of the best that has been heard and inadvertently enumerating the many future projects that he mentioned, left between seeing a glance towards the presence of a national leader. The next 70-odd days from today to November 3 are crucial. One of the most important and transcendent actions is that we all vote. What follows of course is the Republican party convention, we will see and comment on it. I do not know to what extent the publication of the recorded conversations with Mary Trump, (Donald Trump's niece) and Mrs. Maryanne Trump Bary (Donald Trump's sister) will in any way tarnish the image of President Trump even more. In these recordings Mrs. Bary offers disapproving statements from her brother directly emphasizing the egocentric personality of Donald Trump. If you want to hear these comments from President Trump's sister, you can use the following link. Ms. Maryanne Trump Bary describes her brother as a cruel, lying, phony, hypocritical individual, uneducated, and a bit more. As I said a few moments ago, I do not know to what extent this affects Mr. Trump. I believe that for the people that have followed him and continue to support him, not only the political base that follows him but quite possibly the faction that calls itself evangelicals, this does not represent the least concern, this and more than that it does not offer them the least of the problems in continuing to support Mr. Trump. For everyone else outside of these groups, these comments continue to represent confirmation of the imperative need to remove Donald Trump from the White House. Link to audio recordings We are witnessing moments of great historical significance, not only with regard to the pandemic that has given us dramatic moments around the world, along with the political drama that is being experienced in Russia after Russia's best known opposition leader, Alexey Navalny, was flown from Siberia to Berlin on Saturday to receive emergency treatment for suspected poisoning. Imagine that days ago the president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador was on a roll with his anti-corruption campaign, fueled by a video of political rivals counting piles of cash and leaked testimony that could bring down more opponents. Well, today, the Mexican president himself is in a struggle to regain his own integrity as a crusader against corruption. Two videos surfaced Thursday showing his brother receiving bundles of cash from a state political operator in 2015, three years before the president's election. For a populist like Lopez Obrador, who has based his presidency on an anti-corruption stance, this fact threatens to destroy his presidency. A real drama! We will continue with more comments on these and other topics such as what happens during these days before the general elections of November, I am sure that we are about to witness more political drama in the life of the nation and much more drama in the family life of the Mr. Trump! Keep yourself well! Take care and stay informed! I am Francisco Chaparro for Sin Límites a production of PuraVideCommunity. I send a big greeting to each and every one of you from the state of Texas here in the United States of America. Thank you for your attention and we will be back with you soon. Adios!
