Walnut Creek, CA: Doctors have seen more deaths by suicide during quarantine period than deaths from Wuhan virus

What did you think was going to happen when you strip people of their right to earn a livelihood and force them into isolation?

ABC 7 News reported on Thursday that doctors at John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek they have seen more deaths by suicide during the stay-at-home order than deaths from the COVID-19 virus. From their report:

“The head of the trauma in the department believes mental health is suffering so much, it is time to end the shelter-in-place order.

“Personally I think it’s time,” said Dr. Mike deBoisblanc. “I think, originally, this (the shelter-in-place order) was put in place to flatten the curve and to make sure hospitals have the resources to take care of COVID patients. We have the current resources to do that and our other community health is suffering.”

The numbers are unprecedented, he said.

“We’ve never seen numbers like this, in such a short period of time,” he said. “I mean we’ve seen a year’s worth of suicide attempts in the last four weeks.”

Gavin Newsom sets in motion his plan to steal Disaster Relief Funds from Pandemic victims. Primarily victims that voted for Trump

The arragent lawlessness of the democrat party no longer surprises me. We see this behavior more and more because they are allowed to get away with it, unchallenged.

In states like California, where democrats have complete control of all aspects of the government,  the corruption runs rampant.

The democrats misappropriation of state funds and desire to put their personal interests before the citizens have caused a financial hardship on the state.

To counter this hardship the democrats appear to have redefined the position of state Governor. State “Grifter” is more appropriate  title than state Governor.

Governor Newsom appears to spend most of his time trying to figure out new ways to scam the Federal government out of money.

Currently, Newsom is trying to use the covid-19 pandemic to scam the Federal government. For Newsom it’s all about that getting that disaster relief money.

By now we all should be familiar with Elon Musk battle with Alameda County. (A battle he won). Prior to winning the battle Musk went to Newsome to discuss this problem. Newsom made it clear that it was the county officials call. They are to decide when it’s ok to lift any restrictions. Basically he said he can’t do anything about it.

Newsom made the decision to leave it up to the counties. Alameda also agrees with this decision. A commenrt made by Alameda’s health official was ” The governor’s order does not override the county’s stay-at-home order, which is in place through May 31.

It should bew perfectly clear that Newsom passed on the responsibility of “reopening” the counties. With that being the case, we must ask ourselves “Why is Newsome harassing and making threats to Sutter, Modoc and Yuba counties?

‘Gov. Gavin Newsom is warning three counties that they could lose disaster funding if t”ey continue to defy his stay-at-home order.

Officials in Yuba, Sutter and Modoc counties all allowed businesses to reopen because they have fewer coronavirus cases than other parts of the state”.

It’s more than likely he is doing it because of the people that live there.

Sutter County. ” Strongly Republican in presidential and congressional elections. The last democrat to win a majority in the county was Franklin Roosevelt in 1940.”

Modoc County. Strongly Republican in Presidential and cogressional elections. It is the most Republican county in California. The last Democrat to win a majority in the county was Lyndon Johnson in 1964.

Yuba County. Republican in the last five Presidential elections.
In the last Presidential election, Yuba county remained strongly Republican, 57.3% to 34.4%. * This makes me wonder how a democrat won the congressional seat.

*Stanislaus County should be next on Newsom’s hit list, Stanislaus has decided to ignore Newsom’s orders. The county is a “battleground” politically. If,or should I say when actual combat with firearms “kicked off” this would be a hot spot, if not the front line. There would be hundreds, if not thousands of casualties the first few days. The citizens are heavly armed. This is my county.

Alameda is a democrat county. Newsom lets the county do it’s own thing while attacking 3 Republican counties. This is obvious political descrimination.

*If you are one of the few democrats that live in these counties, consider yourself abandoned by your party leader. Newsom considers you a acceptable loss, killed by friendly fire.

Like everything else Newsom does, this is abuse of his power if not criminal. The quickest, more realistic solution to end this is by taking all disaster relief funding provided by the Federal government and relieve the state of the responsibility to issue it out. Give it directly to the counties.

Some might be asking, “Do you have any more proof about him stealing the disaster funds?”

Personally, I think how he handled these counties is enough proof to start a investigation. A person might say, “it’s the same as Trump witholding funds from California.” It’s not. These counties are not breaking any laws.. They’re not trying to cover their debt that had accumilated prior to the pandemic. That’s exactly what Newsome is doing. Trying to cover the debt of the state that accumilated prior to the pandemic. A debt the democrats created. Make no mistake, Newsom wants that money.

What we should keep in mind.

It seemsa like yesterday when Newsome was going to rehab for his cocaine addiction. That was around the same time when he was cheating on his wife and having an affair with his campaign managers wife, doing lines is the nearest bathroom.

Just imagine. The manager is out telling everyone how great Newsom is while at the same time, his wife is in the back seat of the family car having a good time with Newsom.

Newsom, a guy that screws over his wife and his most trusting friend. He is a person that knows zero about loyalty and lkacks integrity and morality. This is a person that has proven to be untrustworthy. Yet, he wins the election.

  • I don’t believe he got the legal amount of votes required to win. When the polls closed on election day, Newsome was behind. Just like most of the democrats in the election. He along with the other democrats won after the mail in votes were counted. Ballots that come in after the polls that arrive by mail don’t get inspected the same way they do when the polls are open. Democrats changed that rule. All fake ballots make it through, unchallanged.. It doesn’t help matters when many of the election officials are corrupt.

Newsom and his crew of pirates need to be audited. The first place I would start would be the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CDF) and their branch, Cal Fire.

I would investigate every piece of equipment owned by Cal Fire. If you have been paying attention in the past you will have noticed that many of the aircraft used to fight fires in California are owned by private contractors or other sources. Cal Fire has not been using their own equipment.

A good question would be, “If they are paying private contractors or other sources to fight fires then why have they spent so much money buying their own equipment?”

Here is some of the aircraft owned by Cal Fire. This information comes from Wikipedia

“In support of its ground forces, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) emergency response air program includes 23 Grumman S-2T 1,200 gallon airtankers, eleven UH-1H Super Huey helicopters, and 14 OV-10A airtactical aircraft. These aircraft are stationed at 13 air attack and 10 helitack bases located statewide.”

Then there is the expense to maintain the equipment.

The average annual budget of the CAL FIRE Aviation Management Program is nearly $20 million.”

I shoul also ad the following.  This comes from a prior post of mine titled,

Kincade fire revisited. 

“In addition I found the following. They have 61 dozers, 50 fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft which include , 2 Air King A200 and 1 or more of the following, Dornier Do-228, C-23A Sherpa (SD3-30), Air Tractor AT-802A “FireBoss”mman S-2T, Lockheed P-2 Neptune, CL-215/ Bombardier 415 “Superscooper”, Douglas DC-7,McDonnell Douglas MD-87, British Aerospace Bae 146/ Avro RJ85, L188 Electra, Lockheed C-130 Hercules, Boeing 747, DC-10, AH-1 Firewatch “Cobra” ,Sikorsky S-61, Sikorsky S-64, Sikorsky S -70 “Firehawk”,Eurocopter AS-332L, Boeing-Vertol BV 107, Boeing 234 “Chinook”, Kaman “K-Max”, Bell 212, Bell 205 A++, Bell 412, Bell 407, Bell 206B “JetRanger”, Bell 206L-III “LongRanger”, Eurocopter AS350 AStar, MD 500D, Aérospatiale SA 315B “Lama”, Alouette 316B, Lockheed C-130, UH -60 “Blackhawk”, Boeing CH-46 “Sea Knight”, CH -47 “Chinook”, Sikorsky CH-53E “Super Stallion” (Sikorsky S-80E). For details click here.”

Cal Fires budget is up to 2.6 billion a year.

Why have the equipment if we are not using it? We need  inventory every piece of equipment.  We will be lucky if it’s  all there.

Before the Federal government gives any more money to the state of California, as well as any other state, they should require some sort of proof that shows prior spending matched request or purpose for the funding..  It’s  not too much to ask for.  If you or I are going to give someone money, we are going to want to know what it’s  spent on.  We are going to expect it to be spent on what we were told it was for.

Newsome is just like every other Democrat in a leadership position, corrupt.  It wouldn’t  surprise me if the democrats weren’t busy rigging the 2020 election, while all the focus is on the pandemic.

The whole concept of waiting for a covid-19 vaccine is stupidity at its best.  We have been looking for a vaccine  for HIV since the early 80’s.  In 2019 the US spent a minimum of 34 billion  on HIV. 

Still  no vaccine.

Democrats know this.  Newsome and the rest of the democrat leadership are nothing more than a band of grifters.  They are an embarrassment to every American, among many other things.

Law Enforcement and the Justice Department need step up and start making arrests  Treat the politicians the same way they treat everyone else.   It will only take a few before they start telling on each other.  Then they all fall.  It’s  that easy.

Respectfully,

Deplorable Patriot.

Meet the democratic socialist (and poet!) running against Nancy Pelosi

Meet the quality of candidates that California has to offer their constituents:

Nancy Pelosi has been in office since 1987. Her current term expires January 3, 2021. And their ain’t NO WAY she’s giving up her power.

Given the background and qualifications of this democratic socialist running against Nancy, Shahid Buttar, she’s more than likely to win another re-election (unless by some miracle a republican gets elected).

Let’s learn a bit more about Shahid, shall we? From his web site:

“Since graduating from Stanford Law School in 2003, Shahid has worked in both San Francisco and Washington as a legal advocate, a non-profit leader, a grassroots organizer, and a poet & musician. His wide-ranging work reflects a commitment to intersectional feminism, democratic socialism, and international human rights. His passions have long aligned around a common purpose: building the movement to place human rights and human needs like peace and climate justice before corporate profits.

In addition to LGBTQ rights, privacy, and the right to encryption, Shahid’s work has also advanced immigrant rights, campaign finance reform, government transparency, international human rights, and police accountability. His writing has explored issues from the right-wing attack on reproductive freedom to the erosion of voting rights, and from effective counter-terrorism strategies to examples of counter-cultural activism promoting progressive politics at the intersection of art and organizing.

An immigrant of Pakistani descent from the United Kingdom and the youngest of four children, Shahid grew up in the midwest and first came to the Bay Area in 2000 to study law at Stanford.

While a student at Stanford Law School, he served as Executive Editor of the Stanford Environmental Law Journal and professor Lawrence Lessig’s teaching assistant for Constitutional Law. He also spear-headed a campaign to promote sustainable building practices by the university, a day of action to shut down a Lockheed Martin facility, and a student strike against the war in Iraq.

After growing immersed in the movement to end the war, Shahid moved to Washington to work for Heller Ehrman LLP, a San Francisco-based law firm that later collapsed during the 2008 financial crisis. His work there included litigation championing the right to marry the partner of one’s choice—nearly 10 years before the Democratic establishment finally embraced marriage equality—and an appeal defending bipartisan campaign finance reform from being undermined by the Federal Election Commission.”

Outside of his work as an advocate and organizer, Shahid performs as a DJ, MC, and poet. He also organizes artists, and has co-founded several collectives of politicized performance artists on both coasts.”

Some of his endorsements include left-wing actress Susan Sarandon, the anti-Semite Linda Sarsour, race-baiter Dr. Cornel West and faux black man Shaun King.

Stellar list of endorsements ‘ya got there, Shahid.

Moving the goalpost: Los Angeles County may stay locked down through August

Los Angeles County has a population of more than 10 million people. As of May 12, they had 33,180 confirmed cases of Wuhan virus which includes 1,613 deaths. You do the math.

Yet even with these extremely small numbers, County Public Health Director Dr. Barbara Ferrer said the stay at home order will “with all certainty” be extended possibly until July or August, according to Fox News.

Dr. Barbara Ferrer

The good doctor said the following, “Our hope is that by using the data we’d be slowly able to lift restrictions over the next three months. But without widely available therapeutic testing for the coronavirus or rapid at-home testing versions that would allow people to test themselves daily, it seems unlikely that restrictions would be completely eased.

Read the whole Fox News story here.

Gov. Newsom issued the mandatory stay at home order in California on March 19. The goal was to “flatten the curve” together and “bend the curve.”

Whatever that means.

Two months later and less than .004 percent of the Los Angeles County population has been confirmed to have Wuhan virus and has an even lower percentage of deaths.

Way to “use the data” move the goalpost.

The cost of economic shutdown: CA goes from $21B surplus to $53.4B budget shortfall

Taxpayers (whether local or federal) are going to have to cough up more money due to bureaucrats across the country completely shutting down economies.

My state announced yesterday that revenue collection for the month of April fell by $502.5 million. You know almost every local and state agency will be facing drastic shortages. But remember: #WeAreAllInThisTogether.

KTLA reports that Gov. Newsom announced that California will have a budget shortfall of $53.4 billion due to shutting down their state in late March. Just last year, they (supposedly) had a budget surplus of $21 billion.

Also, more than 4 million people have filed for unemployment in California as a result of the Wuhan virus shutdown.

You know the pain is going to come for taxpayer$: “Phil Ting, chairman of the budget committee in the state Assembly, said he doesn’t think the state can cut enough spending to fill the budget hole and “may have to look at some additional revenue.”

A panic-based, overreaction is destroying our healthcare systems

On April 10 I did a blog post entitled, “When you prepare for something that is not coming, you just may destroy yourself.”

From my post:

“Based upon models created by “experts,” hospitals and healthcare facilities have set everything aside to deal with the thousands of anticipated Wuhan virus cases. We have shutdown and basically crashed our economy.

The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) – funded by Bill Gates – created models to predict how many Americans would die of the Wuhan virus. These numbers were used in anticipation of determining the number of beds needed to treat Wuhan virus victims at hospitals.

Sean Davis at The Federalist has done a good job of tracking the “experts” and their predictions. Turns out they aren’t so “expert” at all. Their numbers have continuously been revised to lower numbers. Or as they say, “our estimates will change, much like weather forecasts adjust.”

Using the IHME models, hospitals began postponing routine surgeries and treatments. It turns out that hospitals are not as full of the anticipated number of Wuhan virus patients. So what are they doing now?”

Now, due to over-reaction and panic created with GARBAGE models, hospitals are furloughing employees and cutting hours and pay. See the following examples:

“Mayo Clinic to furlough or cut pay of 30,000 employees”

From the MSN story: Mayo Clinic is furloughing or reducing the hours of almost half its workforce as the nonprofit medical center tries to stop the financial bleeding from the coronavirus pandemic.

Mayo Clinic began furloughing an undisclosed number of supplemental and contract employees in late March as it started to deal with the “unprecedented challenges” of COVID-19. The nonprofit medical center employs 70,000 people in multiple states.”

“California hospital system implements pay cuts, furloughs for 14,000 workers amid pandemic”

From The Hill: “A California hospital system announced plans last week to institute pay reductions and furlough some workers amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that a letter sent to Stanford Health Care staff last week indicated that employees could opt for a 20 percent pay reduction between this week and July 4, or decide instead to use paid time off for the period. Employees could also choose to accept a furlough and apply for unemployment benefits.

“Carilion Clinic (Roanoke Valley, VA) announces furloughs, pay cuts”

From The Roanoke Times: “Carilion Clinic announced that it will cut pay for executives, trim hours for some employees, furlough others and delay expansion projects.

The moves are in line with actions by health systems across the country as a response to the financial toll caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Carilion has seen a sharp decline in revenue as outpatient visits and surgeries are halted, and has taken on unexpected expenses in purchasing equipment, medications and supplies and readying units for infectious patients.”

Roanoke Valley has a population of nearly 100,000 people, 154 Wuhan virus cases and five deaths.

Governor Coonman has extended Virginia’s “Stay At Home Order” until June 10.

Backdoor gun grab/control via “emergency orders”

Every gun-grabber’s dream: Use the Wuhan virus as an excuse to suspend your Second Amendment rights. See the following examples:

Los Angeles: “LA County Sheriff tells me he is beginning to close county gun stores immediately. Deputies are currently going to the stores one by one to order them shut down. Sheriff to utilize scofflaw violations for any gun store still open after he deemed them nonessential.

The Sheriff told me he is a gun owner himself, supports 2nd amendment, but believes too many first time buyers are panicking and bringing guns into homes where people are locked down, which he believes is recipe for disaster with potential accidental shootings.”

(The stores in Burbank are going to remain open because they facilitate security needs. They were ordered to close on Saturday, but the city revised it today.)

Pennsylvania: “Big news: PA Governor Tom Wolf has issued new guidelines that will allow gun stores to remain open across the state, as long as they follow specific social distancing mandates.

The governor’s order is very close to the ideas offered up by three state Supreme Court justices in their dissenting opinion in a suit challenging the governor’s original declaration about “essential” businesses.

Stores will be allowed to operate by appointment only, with undefined “limited” hours, so it’s not perfect. It’s better, and I hope it can be continued to be improved to ensure Pennsylvanians access to their rights.”

North Carolina: “Wake County Sheriff’s Office just suspended ALL pistol permit applications due to “unprecedented demand for weapons.” They will not reopen applications in Wake county until APRIL 30th. They say they’ve seen a 250% increase in demand.”

New Jersey: “New Jersey governor Phil Murphy has ordered all gun stores in the state to remain closed during the declared state of emergency over the coronavirus.”

Apparently gun-grabbers believe gun stores are “non essential” businesses and that an “increase in demand” means they can suspend your rights. Figures.

And this is WHY we need the Second Amendment to protect ourselves (posted at 9:19 last night): “Police in Yakima, Washington now say they DO NOT KNOW how many inmates have escaped local jail, witnesses report at least 20.”

All but eight are “unaccounted for.”

Watch the video of the inmates (obviously not yet fully processed as they are still in civilian clothing?) escaping here.

Felons Released from Prison So They Won’t Catch the Corona Virus

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.

It’s All A Joke to Them: Canadian Howie Mandel Wears Hazmat Suit to Hollyweird Gig

Howie obviously missed the memo from Dr. Drew.

Howie Mandel is a judge on the TV show, America’s Got Talent (AGT). He’s also a big germaphobe.

So how did this Canadian decide to show up for work in California the other day? Like this:

Howie made a joke about his outfit. That’s to be expected by someone who suffers from TDS.

This man is worth $40 million, courtesy of his $70,000/per episode paycheck from AGT. He can afford to miss a few days of work if he is REALLY that concerned about the Wuhan Virus.

Yet that wouldn’t allow him the opportunity to run with the demorat narrative, now would it?
