Enter the Gestapo: R.I Governor Closes State Borders, Searches Private Homes for Non-Residents

Welcom to Rhode Island. Pull pull over and show me your papers.

Rhode Island’s Democrat governor Gina Raimondo has closed the state’s borders and established a draconian set of repressive regulations that would have made Adolph Hitler proud. Now, armed military police man roadblocks at all interstate and major highways leading to into, and out of, the state. Armed National Guard soldiers and State Police officers search door-to-door looking for non-Rhode Island people. Local police drive through residential neighborhoods looking for out-of-state license plates. Armed National Guard soldiers are stationed at the T.F. Green airport, Amtrak train stations and at bus stops. The maximum penalty for not complying: a fine of $500 and 90 days in prison. (Prison time for disobeying a quarantine when actual felons are released by the thousands? What insanity!)

London Plague 1348 “Bring out your dead.”
Nazi Germany 1943: “Hand over your Jews.”
Rhode Island 2020: “Identify the the New Yorkers.”

And three golfers from Massachusetts, where all outdoor recreation has been banned, were arrested when they crossed the border to play on a Rhode Island course that was unrestricted for Rhod Islanders. Everyone who drives into the state is ordered to stop and submit to an interrogation. But Raimondo has an especially severe restriction on New Yorkers, since many have tried to avoid the New York outbreak by fleeing to other states. Raimondo’s order says any person coming into Rhode Island from another state for a non-work related purpose—especially from New York—must immediately self-quarantine for 14 days.

Issued March 28, the order repealed a previous emergency declaration that targeted only travelers from New York State. Anyone who doesn’t self-quarantine as ordered will face a fine, and for subsequent offenses could warrant large fines on top of prison time. Soldiers are relaying motorists’ and other non-residents’ contact information to the state’s health department. Health department workers are calling those people to check on their well-being and if necessary to keep track of any contacts they have had.

The lock down has had some truly bizarre, and quite frankly, frightening effects. It has turned ordinary citizens into spies and informants for the government. It is turned duffers who wanted nothing more than to play golf on an open-to-the public course into criminals.

One week after Massachusetts Governor Charles Baker ordered all outdoor recreational areas to be closedclosed, including golf courses and the rifle range where I shoot, Richmond, R.I. police bagged three golfers from Massachusetts on misdemeanor charges. Police said the three duffers went to elaborate lengths to hide their identities as out-of-towners so they could get in a round of golf at the Meadow Brook Golf Course in town.

Gregory Corbett, 51, Tyler Pietrzyk, 22, and Nye Cameron, 22, were apprehended at a nearby McDonald’s restaurant, where police say the men changed cars to drive to the club in a vehicle with Rhode Island license plates, the Attleboro (Mass) Sun Chronicle reported.

Employees at the McDonald’s ratted them out and called the cops.

Gib Mir deinen Pass!

Cops issued the three men summonses for violating the quarantine when they drove back from the golf course to their vehicles at the McDonald’s in the vehicle with the Rhode Island plates, the paper reported.

“It’s not the most heinous offense, but the reality is that we’re living in a whole different world this month, and it’s important we all follow the rules to keep one another safe,” Police Chief Elwood Johnson said.

The restrictions, however, are not without critics. The local chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union blasted the new rules, objecting to the collection of motorists’ contact information in particular.

“While the Governor may have the power to suspend some state laws and regulations to address this medical emergency, she cannot suspend the Constitution,” Rhode Island ACLU executive director Steven Brown said in a statement. “Under the Fourth Amendment, having a New York state license plate simply does not, and cannot, constitute ‘probable cause’ to allow police to stop a car and interrogate the driver, no matter how laudable the goal of the stop may be.

“The ACLU remains very concerned about the enormous breadth of the governor’s latest directive and its focus on out-of-staters at a time when the state acknowledges that half of Rhode Islanders themselves are not following social distancing rules,” Brown said. “A two-week quarantine solely for the ‘offense’ of coming from out of state, and with no opportunity to contest this demand, is deeply troubling.

“In addition,” Brown said, “targeting out-of-staters like this can only promote a divisive ‘us vs. them’ mentality that encourages vilification of others. We fully appreciate that the state is dealing with an emergency crisis that requires emergency actions, but it should not be at the unwarranted expense of our civil rights.”

Raimondo rebuffed the objections, pointing out that laws change during a state of an emergency, and added that she’s receiving federal guidance from the Trump Administration and legal advice from her administration as she makes these decisions.

“It’s the law,” she said. “We are serious about this.”

Hard to practice social distancing when forced into lines for government benefits

Political commentator and host Jesse Kelly has correctly predicted bureaucrats’ reactions to the Wuhan virus. And about the devastating effects of shutting down our economy.

The economic cost of shutting down the US economy

Two weeks ago I wrote a post in which I wondered about the risk and reward of bureaucrats shutting down local economies. From my post:

“In America, you are free to pursue the job of your dreams or start your own business. Imagine the government comes in and demands to shut down your employer or business for public safety. You are now forcibly being robbed of your economic freedoms. Does that not make you some form of an economic slave of the government?

You can’t shut down businesses and expect them to re-open with their regular customers. Those customers have now lost their jobs and will not have any disposable income to spend once the economy is back open for business. That “social distancing” will be long gone when unemployment has reached massive levels.”

Now we’re seeing the economic realities of what happens when you are ordered to stay home. As reported last week: “Jaw-Dropping 10 Million Americans File for Unemployment in Two Weeks.”

I don’t know why anyone would claim that is “jaw-dropping.”

You don’t need a master in economics to believe it was to be expected when businesses are ordered closed and people to shelter in place.

Restaurants are going to be particularly hurt – not just now but also in the future as I anticipate “social distancing” mandates will not go away any time soon. Going out with family and friends to socialize over dinner and drinks is currently a thing of the past.

Last night the owners of Logan’s Roadhouse might have realized the realities of their economic future as they announced they would close 261 restaurants and layoff 18,000 people. From their announcement:

“From the day Logan’s Roadhouse was founded, taking care of our guests and employees has been our top priority. Properly balancing the needs of so many through this COVID-19 crisis has been incredibly challenging for us all. After many long days and nights, we’ve made the difficult decision to temporarily close all corporate restaurants as of March 18, 2020 until further notice.”

Read their whole statement here.

As Deplorable Patriot noted yesterday, we did not shut down our country after 9/11, the swine flu outbreak nor after the attack on Pearl Harbor. We were smart enough to know that the result of shutting down our country would be more devastating than the attacker.

My city is ordered shutdown until the end of April. Another three and a half weeks. And we’ve been shut down since March 16.

There’s got to be a better way, bureaucrats. Because the reality is that the coming economic depression is going to come at a great cost to many of the lives you were trying to save.

Why are Democrat state governors banning coronavirus drug Chloroquine?

Whatever evidence we have point to certain drugs, especially the anti-malaria drug Chloroquine, as being effective against the Wuhan COVID-19 coronavirus:

  • Hydroxychloroquine effective since 2005 (Breitbart)
  • Chloroquine 100% success rate with zinc (Gateway Pundit)
  • French peer-reviewed study of chloroquine 100% success rate (Daily Wire)
  • An international poll of thousands of doctors rated Hydroxycholoroquine the “most effective therapy” for COVID-19. But the survey also found that only 23% of U.S. medical professionals had prescribed the drug — far less than other countries. (New York Post)
  • Australian study found a single dose of anti-parasitic drug Ivermectin kills COVID-19 in lab by removing all genetic material of the virus within 48 hours (news.com.au)
  • Massive doses of vitamin C to treat coronavirus patients (New York Post)

In fact, the FDA recently approved limited use of two anti-malarial drugs, Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine, for COVID-19. (New York Post)

So why are some state governors banning the use of these drugs?

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D) banned doctors from prescribing hydroxychloroquine and Z-Paks. (The Gateway Pundit)

Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak (D) even issued an emergency resolution restricting the prescription and distribution of Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine, ostensibly to prevent “unnecessary hoarding”. (Clash Daily)

Sisolak refused to reverse his order even after the FDA issued an emergency order approving the use of Hydroxychloroquine for use against COVID 19.

Adding to the irrationality, about a week after Sisolak issued the emergency declaration, news broke that his own Department of Corrections has been hoarding Hydroxychloroquine although no prisoner in state prisons has COVID-19. 360 News Las Vegas reports:

According to sources at the drug maker, Concordia Pharmaceuticals Inc, Nevada prisons ordered a large number of their anti-malaria Hydroxychloroquine drug under the name, Plaquenli. Nevada prisons has literally ZERO cases of prisoners infected with the COVID 19 virus to date. The Nevada Board of Pharmacies and the Governor claimed the rule barring doctors from prescribing the drug outside of hospitals was to stop hoarding. After Sisolak’s ban went into effect, the State Prison hoarded the drug in a mass just in case they had break out.

One is tempted to think Democrats Sisolak and  Whitmer don’t want COVID-19 patients to be cured or an end to the pandemic.

Fake News MSM caught lying about coronavirus infection numbers and Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, AOC, Omar, Tlaib and over 100 politicians received dontions from virus test kit suppliers

I was asked the other day if I had been tested for covid-19.  I said “no”. The person said “why?” I responded with “It’s a waste of time and money”

Is getting tested for covid-19 a waste of time?   I’ve listed some basic information about covid-19 that people sometimes overlook.

*Sars cov-2 is the virus that causes covid-19.  In this report, to reduce confusion they both are covid-19.
  1. In the search of a cure, big pharma gets to bypass hurdles that they normally would held up at.  They get to move some of their products with fewer regulations.  This means more profit for them.
  2. “What do you do if you have covid-19?”  Nothing.  If you feels sick enough to want to go to the hospital, then go to the hospital.  If not, you just deal with it until it passes.
  3. There is no cure.
  4. Majority of people, if not all,  that die from covid-19 have underlying problems.  The problem is that when a person dies that has tested for covid-19 they often put the virus as the cause of death.  Even if that person died from underlying problems.
  5. “Testing lets us know if we have it. It will keep us from spreading the virus”.  Maybe.  Is the chance of spreading it worth the damage created by a country shut down?  How many times do we know exactly when we first came in contact with the common cold, the flu, HIV, etc?  The flu kills more people and we never shut down the country.   By the time we realize that we have the flu we could have passed it to hundreds.  Generally speaking, the average person with the flu  isn’t going to go around and give it to other people.  Of course, there are some that will.  Just like the people do with covid-19.
  6. Testing for covid-19 is a waste of time.  After being tested a person has to wait anywhere from 2 to 15 days for the results.  After 15 days you won’t need the results because you will either be sick or not.  If you find you you have it you will be asked if you feel sick.  It depends on who your results are coming from.  If you don’t feel sick you will be told to take care of yourself, stay away from others and go  to the hospital if your condition gets worse.  People that are high risk or have underlying problems may be asked to get themselves checked out.  It really depends on how you feel.  Most people that test positive will not feel anything at all.  This is what they tell people that have the flu
  7. Testing for covid-19 has not cured anyone of the virus.
  8. Hospitalization is pretty much the same for covid-19 victims as they use for people in the hospital because of the flu.
  9. Covid-19  positive people at home are told to do the same as people at home with the flu.  Covid-19 just has a bunch of hype behind it.  Factual evidence is provided toward the end of this article.
  10. There is no way to stop the virus.  The only  way to stop it 100%  is by making everyone in the world stop moving and stand in one place.  If we all stayed in one place, didn’t move an inch for the next 14 to 15 days we would stop the virus from being passed..   We would know who had it and who didn’t.  Then we could separate the infected from the non-infected and wait another 14 to 15 days for it to pass.  Then it will be done.  But that will never happen.  The shut down only slows it down.  It’s not going to stop it.  It’s not going to kill it.
  11. “What about the other things going on that are more dangerous and kill more often?  Do we shut down and hide for those to pass?”  If we did that we would never be able to leave our homes, ever.  That would be stupid.  You will never be able to get things delivered because there wouldn’t be anyone making the products to deliver.  The economy in every country would crash.  Exactly where America is heading.
  12.   Democrats want to keep America locked down for another 5 months. They want everyone to mail in their votes because cheating is the only way they can win.   If they win,  they will step in and “save the country”.  That’s how democrats do it.  They create the problem then step in and act like they are going to fix it.  “Mass shooting were not producing the results they wanted so they ran with this”

Shelter in place for another 5 months? Here’s what Stanford researchers are projecting and why.   CLARA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) — As the Bay Area heads into another weekend of sheltering-in-place due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, many folks are asking how much longer will it take before restrictions are lifted. That’s one of the questions that a Stanford research team set out to answer by developing an interactive tool that models the spread of COVID-19 over time with interventions such as quarantine and social distancing.

“We estimate that shelter-in-place would have to remain in place for about five months or more in order to actually completely suppress the epidemic,” said Stanford biology professor Erin Mordecai.

A 5 month shut down will completely destroy our county.  That is what the democrats want. All I hear is panic that was created by democrats and the MSM .  Just about everywhere I go, all I hear about is testing.  How “we need more test”.  How “more people need to be tested”.  How “we have a shortage of tests”.   Every actor, music artist, athlete, news media outlet, everyone under the control of the democrats are trying their best to convince people that they need to test.  It’s like 1 giant advertising campaign.  And policy is not the only product being sold.

The democrats are not the only ones that have been benefiting off covid-19.  How about the suppliers of the test kits.  I’ve provided a list of some of the top providers of covid-19 supplies. This could be by coincidence but the majority of the suppliers I investigated had made political donations to the democrats.  To be fair,  some have donated to the republican party.  Still,  democrats received more money  than the republican party.

These are a few of the companies that I looked into. .  I listed  the percentage of their contributions that went to the democrats for 2018 and 2020.  On line 1 and 2 you will see a second company listed with no data.  They are owned by the same company listed on that line.  The percentages are the same.

  1. DANAHER CORP.. 88% 2020,  94% 2018.   Integrated DNA Technologies
  2. THERMO FISHER SCIENTIFIC INC. PAC.  67% 2020,  56% 2018.  Qiagen
  3. LABCORP.  51% 2020, 34% 2018.
  4. CEPHEID  87% 2020, 94% 2018 .    Also owned by Danaher
  5. HOLOGIC 78% 2020, 54% 2018.

The following are some names of politicians that received donations from 1 or more of the companies listed.  This list is not complete.  It’s about 20%  complete for the companies I researched.  You will see some names listed more than once. That’s because it’s a different company.  I wouldn’t worry about seeing a name once or twice.  4 or more, which there are, I think should be investigated. The last 50 or so names were small donations.  2 were for only 1 dollar.  These were probably just to mask the people receiving the “payoff”.  Dollar for dollar, the democrat party received more money than the republicans by a substantial amount.   Remember that this is a partial list  from less than half of the companies I listed and researched.  There are a lot more suppliers out there.

That’s quite a list.  I’m not sure what to think.   I had to stop looking. But don’t let that stop you from having a look..  You can start at OpenSecrets.com.

Lets take a look at the suppliers.

The following comes from ThomasNet.com Take notice that  they mention a shortage of Covid-19 test kits.   They also mention how “regulations have opened up”.

Currently, there is still a shortage of COVID-19 test kits in the United States. Although originally only the CDC’s test kits were approved for use, more and more resources have become available as regulations have opened up due to the need for more testing.

  • The CDC, despite initially faulty reagents making its first test kits unreliable, is now offering accurate RT-PCR Diagnostic Panels and positive and human specimen controls. These kits should be used only in CLIA certified labs and are meant to be processed with the Applied Biosystems 7500 Fast DX Real-Time PCR Instrument with SDS 1.4 software, which is specialized equipment that requires specific training. As of March 14th, public health laboratories using the CDC’s assay to test for the virus aren’t required to get CDC confirmation of their samples.
  • State, academic, and independent labs have been developing kits for their own testing as the FDA has loosened regulations. These labs must still validate their results according to FDA regulations and submit them for emergency use authorization within 15 days.
  • Commercial companies have been increasingly putting coronavirus kits out into the market in recent weeks as regulations have loosened. While some are still very specialized and require specific instrumentation, easier and more automated tests are being developed. Test kits that work in a half hour by simply changing the color of a piece of paper are currently in the concept stage.

Additional shortages in test-related supplies like swabs, virus control samples, and RT-PCR instruments have limited the amount of testing laboratories are capable of. Some labs are awaiting government approval as well, and there is no standard machinery for every test, which means some labs don’t have the equipment for some of the tests available. However, as the FDA has issued emergency approval for more and more tests, the greater variety is allowing more laboratories to start testing with their own equipment, and without the need for special training. Because the need has been so great, the FDA has started allowing companies to distribute tests without official review as of March 16, as long as the manufacturers submit validation and data within 15 days.

Some private companies including Lab Corp and Quest Diagnostics have started offering testing services for the virus already, in addition to state and hospital labs. Many labs are still getting the testing up and running, however, so they aren’t able to test at full capacity yet. 

The following is some basic data on the suppliers and developers.

  1. Thermo Fisher Scientific  The company currently sells emergency use and research use test kits. 
  2. LabCorp Currently offers a test for COVID-19 as well as hundreds of other tests.
  3. Cepheid  Working on a test kit for coronavirus and hopes to release it in the second quarter of this year. 
  4. Hologic  The company, whose test was recently approved and which runs on its Panther Fusion system, is headquartered in Marlborough, MA.
  5. Danaher Test kits are not yet FDA approved, but they can be used by laboratories with CLIA certifications. Company owns  Cepheid, Beckman Coulter, Radiometer, Leica Biosystems, and HemoCue.
  6. Roche Diagnostics  Received emergency approval from the CDC for its coronavirus kits, which use automated equipment that already exists in dozens of laboratories across the U.S. Its kits are now for sale. 
  7. bioMérieux Planning to release 3 tests. One is to be submitted for FDA approval at the end of March, and two others, to be finished by Q2 and Q3, will be automated versions, one of which will also test for 21 other types of viruses. 
  8. Integrated DNA Technologies Currently sells both research only and emergency use coronavirus tests. 
  9. Abbott Laboratories Test approved by the FDA March 18th and has immediately started shipping them out. Tests are run on m2000TM RealTime Systems, which exist in over 175 laboratories and hospitals nationwide. 
  10. Quidel Tests run on existing molecular testing machinery and currently are available for sale.
  11. Qiagen Selling tests to detect COVID-19, ramping up production in its factories to keep up with the demand.
  12. Quest Diagnostics,  offers tests.
  13. Grifols  Offers diagnostics for infectious diseases.
  14.  GenMark Diagnostics  Developed research-only test kits for coronavirus, and is currently applying to the FDA to allow their tests for emergency uses. 
  15. Co-Diagnostics Offering its coronavirus test kits through the CDC’s IRR. 
  16.  Sherlock Biosciences, Developing a paper test that will change color once samples of CRISPR processed DNA from swabs have been applied. They are hoping to submit the test for FDA approval.. 
  17. Philips Sells medical supplies.

I know that I’ve mentioned on several occasions that test kits only equal more positive test results and more covid-19 related deaths.  I discussed why in my post How Fake News MSM and the democrats lied to you about covid-19 testing.  

I’m not going to repeat what I already wrote but I would advise you to go back and review it if you have any problems putting it all together.

I pointed out how what the democrats and the Fake NewsMSM had been reporting the wrong data.  Their counts on people infected with covid-19 and covid-19 causes of death were high.  Complete lies.  They are still doing it today.  Fake news CBS News reported the following,

The coronavirus death toll surpassed 10,000 in the United States on Monday, according to Johns Hopkins University. There are more than 347,000 confirmed cases across the country.

CBS is not  the only Fake News organization reporting these numbers. It’s the same for just about all the Fake News Organizations. To read more of this garbage click here.

The  actual number of deaths are provided in the image.

aprilFor source click CDC.

 

Lets take a look at the actual number of infections.

cases reported

Remember that this report of cases includes presumptive positive test.  These are not confirmed tests.  Explained in the next graphic.

pres

 

At this point we can see the obvious.  The fake news CBS is lying.  Deaths surpassing 10,000 if far more than what the CDC reports at 1,880.  They reported 347,000 confirmed tests. CDC reports 304,926 of both confirmed and unconfirmed.  Already we see Fake news of lying.  If they did their actual job and looked for the real confirmed cases they would come up with the following.

158,700 actual confirmed positive cases. CBS more than doubled the confirmed positive. That’s out of the 1,019,261 total tested.  That’s about 15%  confirmed positive.  This tells  us that 85% of the people being tested come up negative.(Calculated with available data.  Even if data was fully updated the end results, percent ratio will be around the same.)

results

Personally I question the results from commercial labs , but whatever.  We work with what we have.

Given the information available we can calculate what percent of covid-19 related deaths out of the amount of people tested.  1,889/1,019,261=0.0018533035=.18533035 %.  That’s nothing compared to influenza at 8.2 % mortality rate which is above the epidemic rate at 7.2%

Now look at the illness onset.  Does it look like things are getting worse.

 

onset

To view this source click here.

You will notice in the chart above that there is a decline in illness onset. You should also be seeing a decline in new covid-19 cases as well as covid-19 deaths.  A headline on Bloomberg.com  from April 5, 2020 for example .

New York Reports First Decline in Daily Coronavirus Deaths

Why do you think that is?  It’s because there is a shortage of test kits.  The supply of test kits should start replenishiong. As the inventory grows, more cases will appear.

You should also notice that all the new companies with the new “home tests” are being blocked.    They might get approved in 2 weeks or a month from now  but until then they are going to be blocked.  Some companies get to bypass regulations because of the demand but that does not include the makers of home tests.

 No COVID-19 testing at home yet but quicker options coming

WASHINGTON (AP) — Home testing for the new coronavirus may sound like a good idea, but U.S. regulators say it’s still too risky.

They’ve stopped companies that quickly launched home-testing kits until they can show their products can accurately detect the virus.

For now, the only way Americans can get tested is at hospitals, clinics or drive-thru sites, with a doctor’s order.

After a botched rollout, testing in the U.S. has ramped up thanks to high-volume testing  machines and new rapid tests. Last week, federal officials said total tests -topped 1.4 million, and labs are processing nearly 100,000 tests daily. That’s the threshold many experts say is needed to track the virus.

Coronavirus screening: Calif. COVID-19 task force lead hopes to have enough tests for general public by next month.

The testing space has been a challenging one for us. I own that and I have a responsibility as your governor to do better and to do more testing in the state of California,” said Governor Gavin Newsom.

COVID-19 testing backlog decreased, more testing on the way, Gov. Newsom announces.

Gov. Newsom confirmed over 126,000 people have been tested for COVID-19 and 13,000 of those are still awaiting results. Staggering numbers that led to a state partnership with two California universities and a task force to increase the volume of tests.”Partnership with UC Davis and UC San Diego to create a minimum of 5 to 7 hubs where we will work with different vendors,” said Gov. Newsom.Leading the COVID-19 test task force is Dr. Charity Dean, Assistance director of California’s Public Health Department and Paul Markovich, president and CEO of Blue Shield of California.

East Bay company to have hand-held COVID-19 testing devices ready by next month

Markovich wants to make sure that anyone in need of a test can get one.”We’ve set a goal to get to 10,000 per day in the next two weeks to 25,000 per day by the end of this month. By the end of the summer in August getting to the capacity of 50,000 a day,” said Markovich.An increase of COVID-19 testing will hopefully mean a decrease in deaths. At least 300 people have died of COVID-19 in California.When we asked Markovich for a timeline of when his team plans to have available tests for the general public to get tested he said, “Well if we hit our targets, I would say within a month we should be able to do that. Ideally we want to be in a position to do that as we start relaxing the stay at home measures.”Governor Gavin Newsom also announced that more test sites are set to open. Abbott Laboratories committed to opening 75 testing sites in California. The state also announced the website, covid19supplies.ca.gov, supported by Salesforce.During this supply shortage, the website will allow people and manufacturers to offer resources.

Here is what insider Dr Fauci has to say about the “deaths to come”. The following is from time.com.  Generally I don’t like to “copy pasta” a complete article but in this case it is necessary source to make my point.

‘We Are Struggling to Get It Under Control’ Dr. Anthony Fauci Says About the U.S. COVID-19 Outbreak

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top American infectious disease specialist,warned Sunday that the U.S. is “struggling” to curb the outbreak of COVID-19, but said that there are signs that mitigation efforts are working.                                                                                                        In an appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation, Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a leading member of President Trump’s coronavirus task force, explained that while the country’s efforts are having an impact, he could not say “we have it under control.” “That would be a false statement. We are struggling to get it under control,” Fauci said. Fauci warned that the rate of new cases will likely get worse before it gets better. While the immediate goal is to reduce the number of new cases, the effects of mitigation efforts would not be visible for “days, if not weeks.” He warned that there is a “bad week” ahead, although the rate of new coronavirus cases may “flatten” by within the week, or somewhat later“As the cases go down, then you get less hospitalizations, less intensive care and less death,” said Fauci. “So even though you’re getting a — really improvement in that the number of new cases are starting to flatten, the death will lag by, you know, one or two weeks or more. So we need to be prepared that even though it’s clear that mitigation is working, we’re still going to see that tail-off of deaths.”                                                                                                                                               Fauci’s comments came the same morning as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the number of deaths has been dropping for the first time in the state, and that there were fewer deaths on Saturday than on Friday. He said that it could be a “blip” in the data— or the “beginning of a shift.”

This is from Fake News CNN

US coronavirus fight enters crucial weeks as the number of cases tops 330,000

(CNN)The next two weeks will be crucial in the United States’ fight against the coronavirus, warn health officials, who are urging Americans to continue practicing social-distancing measures.

Dr Fauci is being made out as some kind of hero by the Fake News MSM and democrats.  When we see this sort of “over the top” praise coming from the Fake News or democrats we should always question the person they are building. With that being said, here is what they used to think about Dr Fauci during the AIDS epidemic.

 

Date: Fri, 12 May 1995 04:16:51 -0400
From:DaveACTUP+@aol.com
Subject: ACT UP zaps Tony Fauci

I was one of the organizers of the action in SF against Fauci. Here is the
text of the flyer that we distributed to the diners at the Project Inform
dinner.

Hope it helps to clarify our position. Take care. ACT UP!

************************************************

"You are responsible for all government funded AIDS treatment research. In
the name of right, you make decisions that cost the lives of others. I call
the decisions you are making acts of murder."
Larry Kramer
"An Open Letter to Dr. Anthony Fauci"
San Francisco Examiner, June 26, 1988

Anthony Fauci, you are a murderer and should not be the guest of honor at any
event that reflects on the past decade of the AIDS crisis. Your refusal to
hear the screams of AIDS activists early in the crisis resulted in the deaths
of thousands of Queers. Your present inaction is causing today's increase in
HIV infection outside of the Queer community.  We are outraged that Project
Inform, an organization that supposedly works on behalf of the infected
community, would insult us by bringing you to our city. You can't hide the
fact that you are nothing but a despicable Reagan-era holdover and drug
company mouthpiece.

With 270,000 dead from AIDS and millions more infected with HIV, you should
not be honored at a dinner. You should be put before a firing squad.

Clinical trials: government sanctioned mass murder of PWAs

Anthony Fauci, you are a murderer because you oversee government sponsored
clinical trials that test and retest combinations of immunosuppressive, toxic
therapies that kill people with HIV. The majority of U.S. clinical trials
involve worthless antivirals like AZT combined with some other drug
(generally another toxic antiviral). What these tests have proven is that you
are able to piss away billions of dollars testing dangerous compounds that DO
NOTHING to improve the quality of life, to stop opportunistic infections or
to extend survival for people with HIV. AZT, 3TC, ddI, ddC, d4T and the
current crop of protease inhibitors are nothing but poison. Ten years of the
plague has shown us that trying to kill the virus kills people with AIDS, and
you, Dr. Fauci, know it.

How long will it take you to start focusing on the immune system, how to
boost it and how to prevent the opportunistic infections that are killing
people with AIDS? Even you admit that "the immune response against HIV is
extremely powerful and is clearly more effective than any of the therapeutic
approaches currently available in controlling virus replication." Still , you
give your blessing to clinical trials of highly profitable toxins that
destroy PWAs' already compromised immune systems.

CD4s and viral load: a marketing exec's wet dream

Anthony Fauci, you are a liar because you have known for years that CD4
counts are a travesty of a surrogate marker that, through drug company
coercion, have been elevated to the status of "a standard." Now that everyone
else knows it too, you and your corporate drug company cronies are urging
researchers to foist another useless marker, peripheral blood viral load
counts, on our frightened, desperate community. Peripheral blood viral load
fluctuates in blood circulation and offers virtually no indication of the
health or disease progression in HIV+ people. According to a recent article
in the April 1995 issue of Lancet concerning viral replication, "the
principle that virus suppression will produce a major clinical benefit must
remain an article of faith." Information like that isn't stopping doctors of
death like Marcus Conant from insisting that "patients should be treated
earlier with combination therapy, and we should be using markers such as PCR
and branched DNA to measure viral load as surrogate markers in clinical
trials."

Your scheme isn't too difficult to figure out; promote another invalid
surrogate marker that has no relation to health or life expectancy of PWAs;
develop a test that costs $200-$300 to measure this invalid marker; encourage
the creation of more deadly drugs that effect this invalid marker; and then
compare the pathetic results you get from these deadly drugs to the more
pathetic results you got from AZT and other nukes. In the eyes of the
government everybody wins. Companies that sell drugs and market tests get
rich and PWAs who sacrifice their bodies in your trials of death are
eliminated from the face of the earth.

The fact that your clinical trials aren't meant to save our lives is no
secret. A December 1994 BETA article "A Remarkable Combination: AZT plus 3TC"
reports that the Phase II/III studies of these drugs were "designed to
evaluate the effect of the combination on laboratory markers of HIV disease
progression, such as viral load and CD4 counts, not critical endpoints, such
as opportunistic infections and survival."

AIDS activists from ACT UP San Francisco and DNCB Now! have been screaming
for over a year that HIV+ people need to activate their cell mediated
immunity and raise their CD8 counts. These activists were invited to the NIH
to present a forum and share their knowledge and experience with researchers.
Finally some researchers are coming around and hearing our voices. Doctors
like Susan Buchbinder who in the August 1994 issue of AIDS stated that
"elevated levels of CD8 cells in healthy long-term HIV+ individuals suggest
that these cells play an important role in delaying disease progression."

Because of your 1995 Annual Review of Immunology article we know that you
know this, Dr. Fauci, but still you prattle on about those CD4s that tell us
nothing at all.

Selling out: from "Murderer" to "Tony"

One thing that 10 years of the plague has taught us is how easily people and
organizations can be bought off. You are one of those people, Dr. Fauci.
Project Inform is one of those organizations. During this time of crisis you
are complacent; part of a government bureaucracy that values thriving
pharmaceutical  company entrepreneurism over the health of people with HIV.

You are a pill-pushing pimp that cooperates with drug companies in forcing
dangerous concoctions down the throats of a desperate community that is
brainwashed into believing that taking a pill, any pill, will help them. AIDS
drugs are not sold to help people, they are sold to make a profit. The
situation is so out of control that drug companies now create and sell drugs
like Marinol, a synthetic derivative of the natural compound marijuana.

The conflict of interest, so apparent between you and the pharmaceutical
corporations, has now been embraced by those in the AIDS community who claim
that they are leaders. In their present state, organizations like Project
Inform, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and ACT UP Golden Gate are all so
embroiled in conflict of interest that they must be viewed as enemies by
PWAs. Project Inform is still pushing AZT. San Francisco AIDS Foundation's
BETA reads like a promo piece for Glaxo. And many of today's so-called AIDS
activists are nothing more than public relations representatives whose job it
is to create a demand for the latest overpriced cure du jour. In the
meantime, grassroots efforts like the AIDS Cure Act are assailed by these
sellout AIDS organizations that have no desire to ever see a cure.

Ten years of hope? Fuck that. Try a decade of death and greed. Go back to
Washington you bastard.

That’s not something the democrats or MSM is going to go out on a limb to show you.  Sure it’s from 1995, but old habits can be hard to break.

Closing Rant

Lets go back to Tuesday, September 11, 2001 2,996 Americans were killed.  Another 25,ooo injured.  America was under attack.  We didn’t know  if more attacks going to happen.  For all we knew our neighbor could have been a terrorist.  There wasn’t any place to hide.  Every single Americans life was in danger.  All the result that came from an enemy that a lot of Americans didn’t know they had.  A unseen enemy that killed more Americans on US soil in modern history.  Was there a stay at home order then? Did we shut down the country?  How about when the swine flu hit America? What about Pearl Harbor when it was attacked by Japan killing 2,403 Americans with another 1,143 injured(Japan didn’t want to attack because they knew every American owned a gun)?

  “Much of the Pacific fleet was rendered useless: Five of eight battleships, three destroyers, and seven other ships were sunk or severely damaged, and more than 200 aircraft were destroyed”.   

Was this enough to make people stay at home and shut down the country?  The answer is no in all cases.  Think about it.  Almost 3,000 people were killed.  25,000 iunjured plus a strike on the Pentagon,  the headquarters building of the United States Department of Defense,  wasn’t enough to shut the country down.  Why?  Because shutting down the country would cause more damage that the current danger they were facing.  This was something everyone could agree on.

  So what changed?  Why did the democrats and the MSM lie to every American and create a situation where Trump had to take such extreme actions.   By creating fear and panic, the democrats and MSM were able create a situation that limited Trump’s options.  The democrats wanted and still are trying to destroy President Trump and America.  What changed is that we have the democrats conspiring with the MSM, working to overthrow our government.  4 years of nonstop attacks on a sitting US President. 

That’s not “oversite.” There is no just cause to investigate the President.   Yet the democrats and MSM continue to work against the will of the people.  Against our president.  With total disregard for the damage they have inflicted on our country.   That’s an attack on our whole way of life.  Attacking a US President is the same as attacking every American.  The democrats and the MSM  are guilty of Treason and Espionage and so much more. 

By now people should be able to see what the democrats are up to.  They are fully exploiting the covid-19 situation.  I personally believe the democrats and the MSM are responsible for the existence  of the covid-19 pandemic.   So I’m renaming  covid-19 since it’s 2020.  Covid-19 is now DNCLIE-20 or MSMFN-20

Besides the economy, I believe we have a danger far worse then the pandemic will ever be.  That’s if the democrats are able to get control of the White House.  How?  by doing what I’ve been warning about for the last 4 years.  It’s how they won California.  If you have been paying attention you will see the democrats are pushing the shut down for a longer period of time.  They are also pushing early voting by mail or voting by mail in general.  This is the main cheat the democrats use to win elections. They’re trying to convince people that voting by mail is more secure.  Lie and scare them into submission.

It’s extremely easy to vote by mail.  I’ll give you an example.  I vote by mail.  I registered and voted without ever providing 1 piece of evidence.  For the primaries in California, I just wrote my info down and mailed it in.  I did the same in 2016.  Things went a little different that year.  They asked for proof of who I was.  I ignored them but still got a ballot.  

The democrats  are using the MSM, Hollywood, Academia, Social Media, everybody and everything in their control to continue to lie to America and create more panic.  I can hear it now, “Stay home or covid-19, the planet killer will get you”,  “hide in your homes”, “We want you to feel safe when you vote”.  Deceiving Americans as they manipulate the ballots, spread lies about Trump, steal from the government and  do their best to crash the economy.  Then if successful, blame Trump for the damage.  The democrats are all in.  Using covid-19 as a political tool is not below the democrats.  If you believe in freedom, justice, equality and liberty then there is no way you can allow any democrat to gain complete control of the usa. 

Things to think about

Forget about my personal comments and look at the facts I presented today.  Mainly look at the amount of deaths are being reported, actual confirmed cases and real mortality rate.  Look at all the politicians that have recieved donations from the test kit manufactures.  Look at the push to buy test kits.  Look at behind  pushing a longer shut down. Do you believe the test are a waste of time?  Are we already infected with a type of coronavirus and the wuhan virus has nothing to do with the strains discovered here in the USA? Do you believe that democrats are conspiring with the MSM?  Do you think this shut down creating a more problems then we would have if we just let covid-19 run it;s course? Do you believe that the democrats want to force mail in voting so they can cheat?  Do you believe that the democrats are exploiting the pandemic?  Do you believe Dr. Fauci is an insider working with the democrats?  Do you believe the democrats and the MSM are causing people th panic?  Do you believe that President Trump is getting all the relevent information he needs?  Do you think that his advisors, staff, etc are doing a good job at keeping him informed?  Do you believe the pandemic is a distraction? How about a  smokescreen created by the democrats with help from foreign governments? Do you blame China for the pandemic or does it come from US Soil?  Do you feel this may be a way to destroy the economy worldwide?  One thing that should be perfectly clear is is that shut down needs to end and justice needs to be served.

Please tell me your thoughts

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in ICU with COVID-19

On March 27, 2020, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 55, said he’d tested positive for COVID-19, the respiratory disease spawned from the Wuhan coronavirus. He went into isolation after a family member showed symptoms.

Lee Brown reports for the New York Post that cabinet officials were alerted in a video conference about Johnson’s deteriorating condition shortly before the public announcement, with one calling it a “truly shocking” moment.

Yesterday, after 10 days in self-quarantine, Johnson was admitted to the intensive care unit of London’s St Thomas’ Hospital, which directly overlooks Parliament.

Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove said the prime minister is conscious and being given oxygen, but is not on a ventilator and has not been diagnosed with pneumonia.

Johnson’s pregnant fiancée, Carrie Symonds, said she had been sick for a week at home with classic symptoms of the virus, but that she was “on the mend.”

Britain has no official post of deputy prime minister, but Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been designated to take over temporarily. If Johnson could not return to his job, his Conservative Party would elect a new leader as prime minister.

Did you know that, until only 4 years ago, Boris Johnson had dual UK-US citizenship because he was born in New York City to English parents? In 2016, he renounced his U.S. citizenship to to demonstrate his loyalty to the UK.

Here are other political figures who have tested positive for COVID-19:

  • Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla) was the first member of Congress to test positive.
  • Rep. Ben McAdams (D-Utah).
  • Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky).
  • Francis Xavier Suarez, mayor of Miami, Florida.
  • John Bessler, husband of Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D)-Minnesota).
  • Prince Charles, first in line to the British throne, tested positive after displaying mild symptoms.
  • Peter Dutton, Minister of Home Affairs, Australia.
  • Franck Riester, Minister of Culture, France.
  • Masoumeh Ebtekar, Iran’s Vice President for Women and Family Affairs.
  • Iraj Harirchi, head of Iran’s counter-coronavirus task force.
  • Quim Torra, Regional Leader of Spain’s Catalonia.
  • Pere Aragones, Catalan Deputy Head of Government.
  • Fábio Wajngarten, Communications Director for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.
  • Nadine Dorries, UK health minister.
  • Sophie Trudeau, wife of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
  • Begoña Gómez, wife of Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez.

Do you have or personally know of someone who tested positive for COVID-19?

And the 2020 Dumbest Congressman Award goes to . . .

Recall that in 2010, Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) feared that moving 8,000 U.S. Marines to the island of Guam would tip over the island. He said:

My fear is that the whole island will become so overly populated that it will tip over and capsize.

Johnson would be glad to know that he finally has a rival for the Dumbest Congressman Award.

I give you Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY)!

On April 6, 2020, Schumer told CNN that he tries to take an hour’s walk every day, and that:

“I am wearing — yesterday for the first time, given the recommendations of the experts, I wore a mask. I didn’t enjoy it, but you have to do it. One of the big problems here we’ve had from the beginning, we have to listen to the experts, the medical experts.

And there have been too many times when others, I won’t name who, you can guess [referring to President Trump], have just ignored the military experts thinking — I mean, sorry, the medical experts. We have to listen to the medical experts, they know best. If they say wear a mask, I’m wearing a mask even though I don’t particularly enjoy it.”

Hey, Chuckie, I don’t need medical experts to know that a face mask is supposed to cover BOTH your mouth and your nose.

Rules for thee but not for me: Mayor Lightfoot defends getting haircut under social distancing order

I’m way overdue for a color appointment at the salon. And I won’t be getting one until sometime in May as our mayor has continued our lockdown through the end of April. I’ll survive though. After all, our combined sacrifices are for the good of the public health. Remember, #WereAllInThisTogether.

Also, I’m not “out in the public eye” so I guess it really doesn’t matter if I’m inconvenienced.

Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot: My haircuts will go on

WGN reports that the good mayor of Chiraq, Lori Lightfoot, defended herself while she disobeyed the “social distancing” orders by getting a haircut. From their report:

“Photos surfaced over the weekend showing the mayor after she got a haircut amid the state’s stay-at-home orders. A woman posted photos on Facebook Sunday saying she “had the pleasure of giving Mayor [Lori] Lightfoot a hair trim.”

In the photos, the mayor is standing next to the woman and they are not standing six feet apart — plus, neither one was wearing a mask.

“Thank you for all the hard work & dedication put forth to help our city,” the post said.

Beauty and hair salons are among the many businesses closed to the public amid the statewide orders.

The mayor was asked about the trim during a press conference Monday. “I’m in the public everyday and candidly, my hair was not looking the way it did,” she said. “I thought I would do it myself but I thought it would be a disaster. So I got a haircut,” she said.

When asked if she was sending mixed messages to Chicagoans, she said she practices what she preaches, but said because she is a public figure, she got the haircut.

“I’m the public face of this city,” she said. “I’m on national media and I’m out in the public eye. I’m a person who takes their personal hygiene very seriously.”

Apparently her stylist wore gloves and a mask so that makes it A-OK for HER. But not for her peons.
