The dictionary defines the idiom “hit someone when he/she is down” as “To criticize, exploit, insult, or otherwise treat badly someone who has already suffered a setback or is in a vulnerable position.”
When a person is already being bludgeoned from all sides, that’s the time to strike your blow. It’s what a rat would do.
The New York Post reports June 3, 2020 that former Defense Secretary James Mattis unloaded on President Trump in a searing opinion piece, accusing him of abusing the powers of his office and of trying to divide the American people as our country is torn asunder by George Floyd riots, looting and burning, with police officers being attacked and killed.
In December 2018, Mattis the globalist resigned as defense secretary in protest of President Trump’s Syria policy because Trump wanted to pull U.S. military out of Syria, ISIS having been brought under some control.
“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled.”
Mattis piously announced he supported the “wholesome and unifying” demands of demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd across the nation. He wrote:
“When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens — much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside. We know that we are better than the abuse of executive authority that we witnessed in Lafayette Square. We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”
Mattis then called on Americans to reject the President’s calls for cities to be “dominated” by the National Guard — a sentiment shared by another rat, current Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who announced earlier Wednesday that he opposed the use of military to arrest protests and violence.
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Wednesday that the order to clear protesters came from Attorney General William Barr, and not the president. But Mattis clearly does not let facts stand in the way of his grandstanding and piling on.
Suzie, an Israeli Jew, was incensed that her two sisters converted to Christianity. So, to refute them, she read the New Testament, but was shocked to discover that all her life, she had been told lies about the Bible and about Jesus.
So she asked God for guidance, and she received it. She now is a Christian and movingly speaks of loving Jesus the Messiah.
In his 2004 book, The God Gene: How Faith is Hardwired into our Genes, geneticist Dean Hamer proffered the hypothesis that a specific gene, vesicular monoamine transporter 2 (VMAT2), predisposes humans towards religious, spiritual or mystic experiences.
Dean Hamer, who will be 69 on May 19, is a former independent researcher at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for 35 years, where he was the chief of Gene Structure and Regulation Section at the U.S. National Cancer Institute. He retired from the NIH in 2011.
There’s a video on YouTube that claims to have been taken at a presentation on April 13, 2005 before the Department of Defense (DOD) by a scientist who submitted a proposal to the DOD to develop a virus vaccine, dubbed FunVax, which could “cure” religious fundamentalists like Islamic extremists by inhibiting their VMAT2 God gene.
Here’s the FunVax presentation:
Here is my transcript of what the DOD speaker said:
“On the left over here we have individuals who are religious fundamentalists, religious fanatics, and this is the expression of R2PCR (?), expression of the VMAT2 gene. Over here we have individuals who were not particularly fundamentalist, not particularly religious, and you can see there’s a much reduced expression of this particular gene, the VMAT2 gene.
Another evidence that supports our hypothesis for the development of this approach…. [At this point, the speaker is interrupted by a man in the audience who mumbles something about Islamic extremists bombing in the market place.] So our hypothesis is that these are fanatical people, that they have over-expression of the VMAT2 gene, and that by vaccinating them against this, we’ll eliminate this behavior.
So we have some very, very remarkable data in this next slide. Here we have two brain scans, their FMRIs [functional magnetic resonance imaging]. These are two different individuals with two difference expressions of VMAT2. On top is the individuals who’s a religious fanatic, an individual that…has high levels of VMAT2. Now, this individual down here who had low levels of the VMAT2 gene, this individual who self-describes as not particularly religious. In each case, these [two] individuals were read a religious text.
[Referring to the top brain scan of the religious fanatic.] This individual lit up, the right frontal gyrus as shown here, that’s the part of the brain that’s associated with theory of mind. It’s the part of the brain that has to do with intents, beliefs and desires. In marked contrast [referring to the bottom scan of the non-religious person], here’s the individual who’s not particularly self-described as religious, and when they’re read a religious text, what you see is that this part of the brain called the anterior cingular cortex lights up. It’s the part of the brain that’s associated with disgust or displeasure on hearing something.
[Inaudible question from the audience.]
So the data I’m presenting here supports the concept that we’re proposing, and I think that we would not propose to do CT scans or FMRIs on individuals out in the hinterlands of Afghanistan.
[Referring to the vaccine] The virus would immunize against the VMAT2 gene, and that would have the effect which you see here, which is essentially to turn a fanatic into a normal person, and we think that would have major effects in the Middle East.
[A man in the audience mumbles something about how this could be done.]
So the present plan and the test[s] we’ve done so far have used respiratory viruses, such as flu or rhino viruses, and we believe that’s the best way to get exposure of the largest part of the population. Most of us, of course, have been exposed to those two viruses, and we’re quite confident that this will be a very successful approach.
[Question from the audience: “What’s the name of this appraoch?”]
So the name of this project is FunVax, which is the vaccine for religious fundamentalists. The proposal has just been submitted, and I think that the data I have shown you today would support the development of this project, and we think this has great promise.
Note that the FunVax video bears two stamps on the upper right:
The Pentagon is a five-story building composed of five rings, A through E, built around a center courtyard….
Room numbers can be interpreted as follows:
The first number or letter indicates the floor on which the room is located (B = Basement, M = Mezzanine, 1-5 = floors).
The next letter is the ring on which the room is located. The main rings of the building are designated A,B,C,D, and E.
The next digit(s) indicate the corridor on which the room is located. Corridors are designated 1-10.
The last two digits indicate the specific bay or room number assigned to an office.
For example, Room BE834 means that the location is in the basement, on the E ring, near the eighth corridor, room 834.
Accordingly, the stamp on the DOD FunVax video, “Loc: Pent Rm BC232,” means Room 232 in the Basement of the Pentagon, on the C ring, near the second (2) corridor.
Unnervingly, the bespectacled FunVax speaker both resembles and sounds like Mr. Vaccine himself, Bill Gates. To compare their voices, here’s a video of Bill Gates speaking at a TED conference in 2014 about a coming pandemic.
This is what Dan Haber of the God gene said about the possibility of FunVax (0:42 mark]:
“So if indeed spirituality is a series of chemical reaction in the brain, and if it can be enhanced by certain types of drug, then naturally it follows that it can be inhibited as well because for every activator there must be an inhibitor. And so I can easily imagine that under the right circumstances, the right stimuli or the right drugs, and the right inhibitors might have some effect on a person’s spirituality at least in the short run. Whether or not that would have a long-term effect or people would undergo homeostatis and alter is an open question. We really don’t know the answer to that.”
Note that the other man in the above video is said to be scientist who gave the presentation before the DOD in 2005. If so, then the FunVax scientist is not Bill Gates.
The video below claims that FunVax was field-tested in Iraq in 2009 and subsequently released in Iran, which led to the Iranian people’s (unsuccessful) protests against the theocratic regime in Tehran, as well as the Arab Spring populist movement that swept across the Middle East in the early 2010s.
But according to Mick West of Metabunk.org, the DOD FunVax video is fake because:
There is no such room in the Pentago as BC232: “There isn’t enough space in that part of the Pentagon for 32 rooms… let alone a conference room. http://www.hqda.army.mil/aoguide/pentagon_map.htm” (Note from Eowyn: The URL doesn’t work. I got the message: “This site can’t be reached. www.hqda.army.mil’s server IP address could not be found.)
“The audio doesn’t match up and the brain scans are not of 2 different people. They are scans from a single 43 yr old meth addict” taken from a study on drug addiction in 2010: https://n.neurology.org/content/75/18_Supplement_1/S67. “Exact same brain scans as the second one in the study.”
“The projectors in video is most likely Epson PowerLite 6110i with wire cover on the back, this model was released in 2008, but video claims to be filmed in 2005.”
“Also at 3:01 you may see focus breathing, which suggests that it was a contrast detect autofocus camera, this kind of tech wasn’t available in 2005, you often may see this kind of focusing issues on late 2000s dslrs (most likely it was filmed on 5d mark ii or something similar)”
If the FunVax video is real and assuming that the Pentagon approved the project, although the vaccine originally was intended for Islamic religious fanatics (“fundamentalists”), we must ask these questions:
Who decides what “religious fundamentalism” is and who “religious fundamentalists/fanatics” are?
What’s to prevent the vaccine from being deployed against devout Christians?
Never underestimate the human disposition to be stupid and evil.
Remember this Iranian man licking the Islamic shrine in Qom, Iran — a country that is a hotbed of the Wuhan virus, claiming he wanted to catch, and spread, COVID-19?
Here in the United States, people are encouraged by a new social media fad called the “coronavirus challenge” to lick toilet seats and other public surfaces in order to spread the virus.
As examples, on March 14, 2020, Ava Louise, a 21-year-old white woman who fancies herself a social media “influencer,” posted a video of herself licking the toilet seat on a plane, with the the caption “Please RT this so people can know how to properly be sanitary on the airplane.”
The man was later identified as 26-year-old Cody Pfister of Warrenton, Missiouri, who was arrested on terror charges. Court documents say Pfister “knowingly caused a false belief or fear that a condition involving danger to life existed” and accuse him of acting with “reckless disregard of the risk causing the evacuation, quarantine or closure of any portion”. (Metro)
On April 2, another video was posted to Twitter showing another young black male sipping from three different bottles of juice, then returning them to the supermarket shelf.
Bolstering that claim is the curious fact that the Wuhan virus is unlike other corona flu viruses in significant ways, including the Wuhan having its most deadly effects on the elderly instead of the young.
Some say that the Wuhan virus might have been bioengineered by China to damage President Trump and the United States. As an example, Kelleigh Nelson wrote in a March 2, 2020 article for News With Views:
Trump’s trade demands and tariffs literally brought Red China’s economy to its knees. Perhaps the Covid-19 virus was turned loose to bring the rest of the world’s economies to the same level. Since Trump took office, America’s economy has been booming, but both Red China and America’s socialist democrats would love to see us suffer a recession. This raging virus has already destroyed $3.8 trillion in stock market value. The Chinese have set a trap for Trump as Cliff Kincaid reported and it’s ugly.
All of which reminded me of a post I’d written for another, long since inactive blog nearly 5 years ago in May 2015, citing a military-aviation website Deagel.com‘s forecast that in 2025, the United States would be economically ruined and massively depopulated. Five years ago, that contention seemed preposterous and inconceivable. In light of the Wuhan virus’ continuing devastation of the U.S. and global economy, Deagel.com‘s forecast deserves a revisit.
Below is my May 2015 post in its entirety, followed by Deagel.com‘s updated revised forecast.
Deagel.com, a military equipment and civil aviation guide website, is causing a buzz on the Internet for its original dire forecast that in a mere 10 years, by the year 2025, the United States would be unrecognizable, a shadow of its former self. Specifically, the U.S.‘s:
Population will be reduced by 254 million (or 78%), plummeting from today’s 318,890,000 to 64,879,100.
GDP will be reduced by $16.54 trillion, plummeting from today’s $17.42 trillion to $881.804 billion.
Power purchase parity (PPP) will be reduced by $45,739, plummeting from today’s $54,800 to $9,061.
What is Deagel.com? Wikipedia does not have an entry on Deagel.com. This is what the precious metals website Silver Doctors says about Deagel.com:
Deagel.com is a military equipment and civil aviation guide website. I have spent time trying to figure out who is behind iit and whether or not it is legitimate – and what the purpose of it is. Certainly it seems legitimate as a catalog of military equipment, the corporations which manufacture the equipment and the Government organizations involved with anything related to the military.
Its forecasts employ mainly data from two sources:
Institutions such as the CIA, IMF, UN, and USG (U.S. government).
“Shadow sources such as Internet gurus, unsigned reports and others.”
Governments lie. Like the economic lies that communist regimes told their people and the world, present-day governments of seemingly-affluent countries like the United States also generate fake statistics about their economies.
The implosion of the U.S. will be triggered by a financial and economic collapse.
That, in turn, will result in a massive loss of population from deaths and out-migration.
There have been many questions about the countries forecast specially the one focusing on the United States of America (USA). They won’t be answered one by one but below you can find some explanation, thoughts and reflections. We are going to keep this as short as possible. The majority of the economic and demographic data used in the making of the forecasts is widely available by institutions such as the CIA, IMF, UN, USG, etc. You can see the most relevant data at every single country’s page. There is a tiny part of data coming from a variety of shadow sources such as Internet gurus, unsigned reports and others. But all these sources are from the internet and are of public domain for at least a minority. For example, several years ago Dagong, the Chinese ratings agency, published a report analyzing the physical economy of the States comparing it with those of China, Germany and Japan. The conclusion was that the US GDP was something between $5 to $10 trillion instead of $15 trillion as officially reported by the USG. We assume that the official data, especially economic, released by governments is fake, cooked or distorted in some degree. Historically it is well known that the former Soviet Union was making up fake statistics years before its collapse. Western as well as other countries are making up their numbers today to conceal their real state of affairs. We are sure that many people out there can find government statistics in their own countries that by their own personal experience are hard to believe or are so optimistic that may belong to a different country. Despite the numeric data “quantity” there is a “quality” model which has not a direct translation into numeric data. The 2014 strain of Ebola has a death rate of 50-60% but try to imagine what would happen if there is a pandemic of Ebola with hundreds of thousands or millions infected with the virus. So far the few cases of Ebola-infected people have “enjoyed” intensive healthcare with anti-viral and breathing assistance but above all with abundant human support by Physicians and nurses. In a pandemic scenario that kind of healthcare won’t be available for the overwhelming number of infected leading to a dramatic increase of the death rate due to the lack of proper healthcare. The “quality” factor is that the death rate could increase to 80-90% in a pandemic scenario from the stated 50-60% rate. The figure itself is not important what is relevant is the fact that the scenario can evolve beyond the initial conditions from a 50% death toll to more than 90%. By the way, no pandemic or nuclear war is included in the forecast. The key element to understand the process that the USA will enter in the upcoming decade is migration. In the past, specially in the 20th century, the key factor that allowed the USA to rise to its colossus status was immigration with the benefits of a demographic expansion supporting the credit expansion and the brain drain from the rest of the world benefiting the States. The collapse of the Western financial system will wipe out the standard of living of its population while ending ponzi schemes such as the stock exchange and the pension funds. The population will be hit so badly by a full array of bubbles and ponzi schemes that the migration engine will start to work in reverse accelerating itself due to ripple effects thus leading to the demise of the States. This unseen situation for the States will develop itself in a cascade pattern with unprecedented and devastating effects for the economy. Jobs offshoring will surely end with many American Corporations relocating overseas thus becoming foreign Corporations!!!! We see a significant part of the American population migrating to Latin America and Asia while migration to Europe – suffering a similar illness – won’t be relevant. Nevertheless the death toll will be horrible. Take into account that the Soviet Union’s population was poorer than the Americans nowadays or even then. The ex-Soviets suffered during the following struggle in the 1990s with a significant death toll and the loss of national pride. Might we say “Twice the pride, double the fall”? Nope. The American standard of living is one of the highest, far more than double of the Soviets while having added a services economy that will be gone along with the financial system. When pensioners see their retirement disappear in front of their eyes and there are no servicing jobs you can imagine what is going to happen next. At least younger people can migrate. Never in human history were so many elders among the population. In past centuries people were lucky to get to their 30s or 40s. The American downfall is set to be far worse than the Soviet Union’s one. A confluence of crisis with a devastating result. The Demographic crisis in the former Soviet Union countries has extended for over two decades, if we accept that it ended early in this decade (2010s). The demographic crisis will hit the World in the near future and is projected to last between three and eight decades more or less depending on technological breakthrough and environmental issues. The aftermath is more likely a frozen picture with the population numbers staying the same for a very, very long period of time. The countries forecast population numbers do reflect birth/deaths but also migratory movements. Many countries are going to increase their gross population due to immigration while their native population may shrink. Over the past two thousand years we have witnessed the Western civilization built around the Mediterranean Sea shifting to Northern Europe and then by the mid 20th century shifting to an Atlantic axis to finally get centered into the States in the past 30 years. The next move will see the civilization being centered in Asia with Russia and China on top. Historically a change in the economic paradigm has resulted in a death toll that is rarely highlighted by mainstream historians. When the transition from rural areas to large cities happened in Europe many people unable to accept the new paradigm killed themselves. They killed themselves by a psychological factor. This is not mainstream but it is true. A new crisis joins old, well known patterns with new ones. Sorry to disappoint many of you with our forecast. It is getting worse and worse every year since the beginning of the pre-crisis in 2007. It is already said that this website is non-profit, built on spare time and we provide our information and services AS IS without further explanations and/or guarantees. We are not linked to any government in any way, shape or form. We are not a death or satanic cult or arms dealers as some BS is floating around the internet on this topic. Take into account that the forecast is nothing more than a model whether flawed or correct. It is not God’s word or a magic device that allows to foresee the future. Sunday, October 26th, 2014

To see Deagel.com‘s 2025 forecasts for all 182 countries, go here.
Silver Doctors writes: “I leave it up to the reader to decide whether or not this is a legitimate forecast from a legitimate organization. […] But, having said that, I have 100% conviction that the U.S. is heading toward a devastating financial and economic collapse that will trigger massive social upheaval and civil unrest. What just happened in Baltimore is small taste of what that will look like.”
Here are my critique and analysis:
Deagel.com‘s flawed data: The website itself admits that governments, including the U.S. government, lie about their economic statistics. And yet Deagle.com says “most” of its data come from public information sources that include USG and other governments.
Deagel.com‘s faux numerical precision: Despite its flawed data, the website manages to make forecasts 10 years into the future with numerical precision of specific population numbers and GDPs in exact dollar amounts.
There does not appear to be a discernible logic for the order of countries in Deagel.com‘s list of 182 countries in 2025.The countries are arranged neither alphabetically, nor geographically (by region or continent), nor by their fortunes (decline or improvement), nor by the severity of their projected decline.
If one assumes that the economic collapse of the U.S. dollar and of the U.S. economy would be the trigger event, that could explain why other western countries (Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) and Japan would also decline. But why would China, whose economy is so dependent on the U.S. market for its exports, be exempt from the predicted precipitous decline, but instead is predicted to have a population increase of 10.72 million and only a slight $466 decrease in its PPP (from $12,900 to $12,566? That makes no sense.
Making even less sense is that present-day 4th-world countries like Burkina Faso in Africa is projected to increase its population from 18,360,000 to 18,402,380, and its PPP from $1,700 to $1,841.

Drudge Reporthas gone to the dark side. Check out Whatfinger News, the Internet’s conservative frontpage founded by a military veteran!
The BBC has reported that communities across the USA are releasing hundreds of felons from federal, state, county and city lockups due to the Chinese Covid-19 virus pandemic. In addition, judges are said to be working out plea bargaining deals for low-level offenders who have yet to be convicted of their alleged crimes. These alleged criminals will be released without serving time.
The newly released felons include drug dealers, thieves, muggers and so forth. It takes no stretch of the imagination to know these criminals will be able to take up where they left off—prowling the streets, mugging passersby, selling drugs, boosting cars, and invade the homes. One has to wonder just how much social distancing this bunch of losers are going to observe, model citizens that they are (sarc).
From the BBC 3/19/2020:
New York City is releasing “vulnerable” prisoners, the mayor said on Wednesday, days after Los Angeles and Cleveland freed hundreds of inmates.
Prison reform advocates say those in jail are at higher risk of catching and passing on Covid-19.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday that city officials will this week identify individuals for release, including people who were arrested for minor crimes and those most vulnerable to infection due to underlying health problems.
His announcement came hours after a guard and a prisoner tested positive for coronavirus at Rikers Island prison, where disgraced former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, 68, is a high-profile inmate. (Do you wonder if they also checked Weinstein’s cell mate for STD?) Weinstein will be moved to a different state prison, an official said on Wednesday.
Other New York prisons, such as Sing Sing, have had inmates test positive for corona virus and one employee for the state’s corrections department has died from it.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reduced its inmate population by 600 in the last two weeks, officials said on Tuesday.
“Our population within our jails is a vulnerable population just by who they are, where they are located, so we’re protecting that population from potential exposure,” Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters earlier this week.
The LA County jail system is the largest prison system in the world (and rightly so) with an average population of around 22,000 prisoners.
Mr. Villaneuva disclosed that arrests in the county are also down, from an average of 300 per weekend to only 60 in mid-March.
Cuyahoga County, Ohio, where the city of Cleveland is located, has also released hundreds of prisoners due to corona virus concerns.
Judges held emergency hearings through the weekend to work out plea deals and other agreements to allow prisoners to be released early or without serving time.
Several states from New York to California are now banning in-person visitors. A ban on visits led to a deadly prison riot in Italy last week.
Federal agencies will postpone most arrests and deportations during the corona virus crisis.
Prison-reform campaigners (aka bleeding heart liberals) say prisoners face unique risks, due to a lack of hygiene in overcrowded cells and hallways.
Handcuffed people cannot cover their mouths when they cough or sneeze, sinks often lack soap and hand sanitizer is considered contraband due to its alcohol content.
Iran has already released 85,000 people, including political prisoners, in an effort to combat the pandemic. (And yet, the faithful still literally lick the iron bars around their holy shrines one after another.)
The US locks up more of its citizens per capita than any other country, with an estimated 2.3 million people behind bars in federal, state and local prisons.
Some high profile convicts have argued for early release over corona virus fears.
They include President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen, 53, financial fraudster Bernie Madoff, 81, and Gilberto Rodriguez-Orejuela, a notorious Colombian drug lord.
In the Iranian city of Qom, a Muslim cleric named Ayatollah Tabrizian denounced Western medicine and suggested alternative methods to combat the Wuhan virus-induced COVID-19 respiratory disease.
Along with combing your hair thoroughly, consuming copious amounts of brown sugar, burning wild rue, and inhaling snuff, Ayatollah Tabrizian suggested the novel technique of smearing violet leaf oil on one’s anus. He posted this on the social messaging service Telegram (source: The New Arab):
“Before bedtime, drench some cotton in violet oil and apply onto your anus”
In India, a Hindu group hosted a cow-urine drinking party on Saturday to ward off the Wuhan virus in the belief that cow pee has magical medicinal properties because Hindus consider cows to be sacred. (Daily Mail)
Meanwhile, in the United States, last Thursday afternoon (March 12) in a jam-packed Sam’s Club of panicked shoppers in metro Atlanta, Georgia, a fight broke out when a man in a motorized shopping cart bumped into the cart pushed by a man and woman.
Motorized-man and cart-man grabbed wine bottles and began hitting each other, which ended in one man being wheeled out of the store on a stretcher. (AJC)

On Saturday, March 14, in Oregon, the Newport Police Department asked the public not to call 9-1-1 because they ran out of toilet paper. Below is the Newport PD’s post on Facebook:
It’s hard to believe that we even have to post this. Do not call 9-1-1 just because you ran out of toilet paper. You will survive without our assistance.
In fact, history offers many other options for you in your time of need if you cannot find a roll of your favorite soft, ultra plush two-ply citrus scented tissue. Seamen used old rope and anchor lines soaked in salt water. Ancient Romans used a sea sponge on a stick, also soaked in salt water. We are a coastal town. We have an abundance of salt water available. Sea shells were also used. Mayans used corn cobs. Colonial Americans also used the core of the cob. Farmers not only used corn cobs, but used pages from the Farmers Almanac. Many Americans took advantage of the numerous pages torn from free catalogs such as Sears and Roebuck. The Sears Christmas catalog, four times thicker than the normal catalog, could get a family of three wiped clean from December through Valentine’s Day; or Saint Patrick’s Day if they were frugal. Then, of course, there are always alternatives to toilet paper. Grocery receipts, newspaper, cloth rags, lace, cotton balls, and that empty toilet paper roll sitting on the holder right now. Plus, there are a variety of leaves you can safely use. Mother Earth News magazine will even tell you how to make your own wipes using fifteen different leaves. When all else fails, you have magazine pages. Start saving those catalogs you get in the mail that you usually toss into the recycle bin.
Be resourceful. Be patient. There is a TP shortage. This too shall pass. Just don’t call 9-1-1. We cannot bring you toilet paper.
Meanwhile, back in Iran, the epicenter of the pandemic in the Middle East, yesterday the government reported 113 new Wuhan coronavirus deaths, the country’s biggest single-day jump in fatalities since the outbreak began, bringing the death toll to 724, and confirmed COVID-19 cases to nearly 14,000. There are reasons to suspect the actual number of infections in Iran is much higher.
But as countries across Europe, the latest being Germany, close their borders to contain the Wuhan virus, President Hassan Rouhani of Iran ruled out a general quarantine and said the government was working to keep open the country’s borders. (Fox News)

The current coronavirus is misnamed because it is not specific enough.Coronaviruses are a family of viruses that cause respiratory tract infections. Coronaviruses include the common cold, the seasonal flu virus, and rarer forms such as SARS, MERS, and the current virus wreaking havoc around the world. That virus originated in China, in the city of Wuhan.
Note: SARS-CoV (Severe Acute Respirtory Syndrome-CoronaVirus) had also originated in China — in southern China in 2002.
The medical name for the current coronavirus is SARS-CoV-2.
The disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 is named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
On Wednesday night, March 11, once again President Trump spoke to the nation about what the federal government is doing about the Wuhan coronavirus.
MSM jackals, especially CNN, seized on Trump calling the virus the Wuhan virus, and accused him of racism.
Why is that racist?
Did you know that MERS that first broke out in June 2012 in Saudi Arabia refers to Middle East Respiratory Syndrome?
Why is it okay to call MERS the “Middle East” coronavirus, but it’s racist to call the current coronavirus that originated in Wuhan, China the Wuhan or Chinese coronavirus?
To top it off, the very same MSM jackals who are accusing Trump of racism themselves had referred to the virus as the Wuhan coronavirus! — which makes them, by their own yardstick, rank racists.
Hard to believe this imbecile actually was mayor of New York City. Can you imagine Michael Bloomberg in the White House?
Thankfully, after spending nearly $1 billion of his $60 billion fortune and winning only one Democratic caucus — in American Samoa — Bloomberg announced this morning he’s dropping out of the 2020 presidential race, giving his endorsement to pedo Joe Biden.
(2) Iranian man:
In the city of Qom, an Islamia religious center that is the epicenter of COVID-19 (the respiratory disease caused by the latest version of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2) in Iran, a man licks the shrine so as to catch the coronavirus. Insane.
According to the Iranian government, COVID-19 has killed 92 people amid 2,922 confirmed cases, the highest death toll in the world outside of China. But experts question whether Iran may be under reporting the number of cases it has. (ABC News)
The virus has even sickened top leaders inside Iran’s civilian government and Shiite theocracy, including Iran’s vice president, deputy health ministers, and 10% of its parliament. (National Review)
Meanwhile, President Trump donated his last quarter’s paycheck to combating coronavirus.
Hey, Steyer, you do know that despite the Left and the media’s hyperventilating about how the Trump administration’s killing of Iranian terrorist general Qassem Soleimani would lead to a U.S. war against Iran and nothing less than the World War III, none of that happened?
And do you know that yesterday, the United States signed a historic peace deal with Afghanistan, that could see all American troops withdrawn from that hell hole by May 2021, and so end America’s longest war?
So much for Trump being “mentally stable” who had taken the U.S. “to the brink of nuclear war”. 🙄
Now, after spending yet more tens of $millions, Steyer is dropping out of the 2020 presidential race.
Mary Kay Linge reports for the New York Post that in the wake of a crushing loss in South Carolina’s primary Saturday, Tom Steyer is quitting, having racked up just over 11% of the vote with 66% of precincts reporting — thereby missing the 15 percent cutoff to claim any statewide delegates — despite the $23.6 million he poured into advertising in South Carolina alone.
Neither did Steyer win any delegates in three earlier Demonrat primaries — in Iowa, New Hampshire and Nevada.
Steyer said he would throw his support to whichever Demonrat wins the nomination because “every Democrat is better than Trump.”
Steyer also sanctimoniously promised to continue pushing for government programs to address climate change, never mind the fact that he made his $1.6 billion fortune fromFarallon Capital, a hedge-fund firm that invested heavily in carbon-spewing coal-mining companies.
