How Fake News MSM and the democrats lied to you about covid-19 testing

I know this person who is in his late 60’s early 70’s age wise.  He has multiple health problems.  Yesterday he had a problem standing.  He fell down getting out of bed, sometime in the middle of the night.  His landlord/care giver felt it best that the guy went to the hospital to see what the problem was.  His landlord rents a room to him and felt the guy needed to spend some time in a convalescent home.

An ambulance arrives at the house and the ambulance driver doesn’t want to take the guy to the hospital.  He wants the landlord to take the guy.  I thought that was strange.  After a couple of minutes the ambulance driver ends up taking the guy to the hospital.

The guy gets to the hospital.    While checking in they tell him they want him to take a covid-19 test.  He has no symptoms of covid-19.  He shouldn’t.  He doesn’t go anywhere.  His landlord  is pretty much the same way ..   Besides not having any symptoms, that’s not what he’s there for.

The guy ends up having to take the test because the hospital said they were testing everyone that comes in. Pretty odd considering there is a “shortage” of available tests.

They give the guy a look over, the covid-19 test and tell him he need to wait 2 to 3 days for the test results..  Then the hospital sends him on his way to go home or where ever the guy felt like going.

The first thing I did was ask about the conditions about the hospital.  He said  “It was quiet, things were normal.  The tents outside were empty.”.

Then I thought about how testing was going to help slow covid-19 from spreading.  The 2 to 3 day wait is more than enough time to pass it on to several people.  Then I realized testing was a waste of time.  It’s all a scam job.

I’ve mentioned in the past about Presumptive Positive(PP) test.  For those that don’t remember, PP test are not confirmed. They are test waiting to be confirmed.  I knew this was a problem but was unable to put it completely together until the guy I know went to hospital  got tested.

Below, in the image you see screenshots of the most recent data the CDC has available on covid-19.  5 lines down it says “Data includes both confirmed and presumptive positive”.   They don’t provide a list of actual confirmed test separate from PP test.  They don’t provide a list of how many test comes up negative.  They are presenting the data as if every test, which includes PP tests as if they are positive.  They also don’t provided actual causes of death.  A person can be dying of cancer.  They test him for covid-19.  If he dies they put him on the list of covid-19 deaths.

If you take the test you are automatically classified as PP.

You might be thinking “What’s the big deal, people don’t feel good, they have the symptoms. Hospitals are only testing  people with symptoms and those lucky enough to get tested. The people getting tested probably have it” 

This is where the person I know that got tested comes into play.

  1. He didn’t go in for a test.  He didn’t have the symptoms.
  2. The hospital made him test.
  3.  The hospital was testing every person that went there for help.
  4. .  All these test are considered PP.  These get reported to the CDC.
  5. The CDC reports them as positive and adds them to confirmed list

Consider the amount of people entering the hospitals each day.    In 2017, 139 million people made visits to the hospital.  If that were today, everyone would get tested for covid-19.  That’s 139 million PP tests.  CDC would publish it as 139 million cases of covid-19.

Because of this we can assume that every test is going to be considered PP, at the very minimum.  Every test is going to be reported as positive.  This is  why the more people that test, the higher the number of positive cases reported.  Every test is published  as positive by the CDC.  When  there are no test available then the amount of positive test declines.

In the image we can get a idea of how the number of reported positive tests increases and declines with the availability of tests.  We will see a huge increase in the immediate future when more test become available.

The states that had more test sent to them have the highest number of positive test.  You can see the surge in numbers after they took possession of the tests.

Let me finish this up by doing a quick breakdown of what has happened.  Quick generalization.  Many details left out.

  1. As soon as we learned about covid-19 was discovered on cruise ship returning to the USA.  democrats spent most of their time in a over site hearing complaining/predicting a covid-19 pandemic instead of asking questions related to the purpose of hearing.
  2. The Fake News MSM join in and start planting seeds and pushing the same  covid-19 pandemic garbage the democrats are pushing.
  3. Democrats demand that trump listen to the experts and let them handle the situation.  Fake News MSM does the same, backing up the democrats as always.  This was done to keep Trump from seeing the actual data on the web pages.  Trump does not have time to read everything.  He can only work with the information reported to him.  Dr. Fauci was Trump’s “go to” guy   He fed Trump partial information and  straightTout lies.  A distraction.  A traitor.
  4. While this is going on the Fake NEWS MSM is installing fear in the citizens of the USA.
  5. Democrats demand more test kits.  Andrew Cuomo , the loudest, demanding and receiving the most available tests kits.  Ventilators and masks are just part of the con.  Used to provoke fear and panic .  People think they need them to protect them form covid-19 .  Fake News MSM back democrats up on this creating panic.
  6. Pelosi, Cuomo, Dr. Fauci and various democrats, with the help of the Fake News MSM are telling lies, creating panic , creating the false need for the shutdown of the USA.  The covid-19 stimulus bill is a direct result of their deceitful behavior.   They take advantage of the situation and  include addons to the bill that support their agenda.  Addons that would never make it trough on their own.  They do this knowing they will get resistance.  Fully aware they will be able to get some through.
  7. Trump really has no choice but to sign the bill or democrats and Fake News MSM will accuse him of not wanting to help Americans.
  8. Democrats and the Fake News MSM are basically extorting America.  They continue to do it at this very moment.
  9. For the Democrats and the Fake News MSM. it’s Mission accomplished. Unfortunately for them, they got caught.

This is exactly what is going on.  Americans need to step up and do something, say something,  whatever.  Just do not continue to fall for this faux pandemic.  People need to support their president.  It’s far past time that the democrats and The Fake News MSM see justice.   This is an attack on every single American.  There should be no question that the democrats and the Fake News MSM are the enemy of America.

Every American should be angry.  I have reached my end. If I have to take up arms. If I have to give up all my possessions.   If we have a civil war.  If I fall and never get up again while fighting in this war. Any or all is fine by me. I will no longer put up with the lawless, back stabbing, anti American democrats and Fake News MSM.  They need to be taken down. Playtime is over. No Quarter

Is Covid-19 man made and released from a Wuhan lab? Evidence of genome editing

I’ve been seeing a lot of the same story being told by various media outlets.  All  pushing the same  narrative, “scientists confirm Covid19 is not a manmade bioweapon”.  It’s only fair that I show the other side of the argument.

There is a scientist that says covid-19 is man made and was released from Wuhan lab.  The story was first published on March 2. 2020.

A Taiwanese scientist has claimed Chinese microbiologists probably created coronavirus in Wuhan, China.

Based on the virus unusual structure it is most likely “man made” and there is a theory coronavirus was somehow leaked or released from the Institute of Virology in Wuhan China, said Professor Fang Chi-tai from the National Taiwan University (NTU).

Professor Fang said China’s track record with safety standards and laboratory management has been questioned in the past.

The Professor claims it was very possible that the Wuhan Chinese scientists created the deadly virus by simply adding four amino acids to an existing bat virus, which therefore makes it much easier to transmit to people.

Professor Fang added, “The mutations found in the novel coronavirus are unusual in an academic sense.

“It is indeed possible that it is a man-made product.

“From an academic point of view, it is indeed possible that the amino acids were added to COVID-19 in the lab by humans.”

I should point out that Wuhan has the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It’s a level 4 laboratory that was used to store, handle and research samples of SARS, Ebola and other deadly infectious viruses. Fang mentioned the possibility of the virus being leaked from there due to gross mismanagement.  Fang also said,

Analyses of the Covid-19 virus have shown that it had a 96% genetic similarity with an RaTG13 bat virus also stored at the institute, and that the Covid-19 could be “manufactured” by modifying the RaTG13 virus.

French researchers had discovered four more amino acids in the gene sequence of Covid-19 than other known coronaviruses, which could be added artificially to make the viral transmission easier.

The following was also mentioned,

In February Chinese scientist announced the true cause of the spread of coronavirus, who broke cover and said the oubreak started in a science laboratory in Wuhan yards away from a wet market.

A scientist told how a sick bat attacked the researchers and bled on them and urinated on another, they were then forced to quarantine themselves for 14 days.

Biologists Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao published a pre-print entitled “The possible origins of 2019-nCoV coronavirus.”

The report describes how “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.

“We noted two laboratories conducting research on bat coronavirus in Wuhan, one of which was only 280 metres from the seafood market.

“We briefly examined the histories of the laboratories and proposed that the coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory.

Evidence for RNA editing in the transcriptome of 2019 Novel Coronavirus

For additional evidence of human influence in  the Coronavirus, I’ve provided a link to a PDF file titled  “Evidence for RNA editing in the transcriptome of 2019 Novel Coronavirus”.

It comes from bioRxiv.  You won’t hear anything about this in main stream news.  I’ve seen 1 article and it was an attempt to debunk the discovery by accusing the scientists of running a “shabby operation”.   Still, the critic never said the discovery was inaccurate.

The 2019-nCoV outbreak has become a global health risk. Editing by host deaminases is an innate
15 restriction process to counter viruses, and it is not yet known whether it operates against
coronaviruses. Here we analyze RNA sequences from bronchoalveolar lavage fluids derived from
two Wuhan patients. We identify nucleotide changes that may be signatures of RNA editing:
Adenosine-to-Inosine changes from ADAR deaminases and Cytosine-to-Uracil changes from
APOBEC ones. A mutational analysis of genomes from different strains of human-hosted
Coronaviridae reveals patterns similar to the RNA editing pattern observed in the 2019-nCoV
transcriptomes. Our results suggest that both APOBECs and ADARs are involved in Coronavirus
genome editing, a process that may shape the fate of both virus and patient.

The scientist behind this discovery are Salvatore Di Giorgio, Filippo Martignano, Maria Gabriella Torcia, Giorgio Mattiuz, Silvestro G. Conticello.

Chinese bots spread Anti-Trump Coronavirus Conspiracy Theories

It appears that China does not want to accept responsibility for the Coronavirus.  Who should they blame?  Apparently, President Trump.  It’s who I would pick if I were China.  It’s also the choice of the democrats.  Maybe it’s just a coincidence.

Apparently unsatisfied with the results of their covid-19 gift to the world, China has decided to grace us with more gifts.

“Chinese bots have flocked to Twitter since the beginning of the coronavirus public relations effort emanating from Beijing.”

In the past few days especially, brand new “bot”-like accounts following zero people, and being followed back by no one, have flooded Twitter threads attacking the United States of America, President Trump, and many who believe the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) should have to answer tough questions about the COVID-19 coronavirus.

Defending the  Chinese Communist Party seems to be the main mission of the bots.  What better way then to spread conspiracies about POTUS.

I wonder if the democrats know this is going on.

President Trump declares today a National Day of Prayer; tested negative for Wuhan coronavirus

Romans 5:1-2, 5-8

Brothers and sisters:
Since we have been justified by faith,
we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,
through whom we have gained access by faith
to this grace in which we stand,
and we boast in hope of the glory of God.

And hope does not disappoint,
because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
For Christ, while we were still helpless,
died at the appointed time for the ungodly.
Indeed, only with difficulty does one die for a just person,
though perhaps for a good person one might even find courage to die.
But God proves his love for us
in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us.

President Trump has declared today, Sunday, March 15, 2020, to be a National Day of Prayer. Here is his tweet:

It is my great honor to declare Sunday, March 15th as a National Day of Prayer. We are a Country that, throughout our history, has looked to God for protection and strength in times like these.

No matter where you may be, I encourage you to turn towards prayer in an act of faith. Together, we will easily PREVAIL!

On Friday, March 13, President Trump also declared a national state of emergency due to the Wuhan coronavirus-induced respiratory illness, COVID-19.

In so doing, Trump has freed up to $50 billion in federal funding to federal, state and local governments attempting to combat COVID-19, as well as enabling the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to mobilize personnel more quickly to help state and local agencies and leaders.

Trump also said and urged the following:

  • Waive interest on federal student loans “until further notice”.
  • The Department of Energy will buy up crude oil for storage in U.S. reserves.
  • States should set up emergency operation centers and hospitals in accordance with active emergency preparedness plans.
  • Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar is given “broad new authority” allowing him to waive various laws and regulations related to hospital operations.
  • U.S. government is partnering with private companies to increase Wuhan virus testing capabilities.
  • Trump administration is working to set up drive-thru test sites. He met earlier in the day with lab and pharmacy executives to discuss the initiative.

Meanwhile, yesterday evening, White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said President Trump has tested negative for COVID-19. Dr. Conley said in a press release:

Last night after an in-depth discussion with the President regrading COVID-19 testing, he elected to proceed. This evening I received confirmation that the test is negative.

One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom-free. I have been in daily contact with the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] and White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we are encouraging the implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation.

Please pray for our President.

Please pray for America.

Media hypocrisy: Trump calling it ‘Wuhan virus’ is racist, but media hacks themselves called it just that

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.

Here’s the evidence:

What President Trump is doing about the coronavirus epidemic

While Democrats and the complicit media carp and use the coronavirus as a weapon to take down President Trump, this is what his administration is doing about the epidemic.

Shockingly, I couldn’t find a list of what Trump has done, not even on the WhiteHouse.gov website. I compiled the following list from searching online:

(1) On January 29, 2020, President Trump donated his paychecks from the last quarter of 2019, totaling $100,000, entirely to combating coronavirus.

(2) On January 31, 2020, President Trump issued an order banning foreign nationals (other than immediate family of U.S. citizens and permanent residents) who have traveled in China in the last 14 days from entering the United States. American citizens returning the U.S. from areas in China, such as the epicenter Wuhan, where they may have been exposed to the virus will be quarantined, while those coming from the rest of China will be screened for the virus. (Western Journal)

(3) On February 6, 2020, the Department of Defense announced in a press release that in addition to five locations already providing housing to quarantined Americans who have fled Wuhan and Hubei province in China where the virus originated, the DOD identified nine other military installations that can provide housing for quarantined passengers traveling to the U.S. through 11 major airports screening for the coronavirus from China. (Military Times)

(4) On Februry 6, 2020, The White House asked U.S. scientists and medical researchers to investigate the scientific origins of the novel coronavirus, including whether it was engineered as a bio-weapon. (ABC News)

(5) Trump had barred Americans on the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan who had tested positive for coronavirus from returning to the Unites States. On February 22, 2020, however, Trump was taken by surprise and reportedly “furious” that a State Department official in JapanIan Brownlee, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Consular Affairs — overrode the president’s directive by allowing the 14 infected Americans to return to the U.S. (New York Times)

(6) On February 25, 2020, President Trump asked Congress for $2.5 billion — half new money, half repurposed from other efforts — to battle the spread of the coronavirus. According to a person familiar with the matter, more than $1 billion of the money would be dedicated to creating a vaccine; other parts of the request would be put toward stockpiling protective masks and therapeutic programs. Democrats rejected the request, saying existing money shouldn’t be used to fight the coronavirus, and pledged a funding package of their own. (Bloomberg)

(7) On February 26, 2020, President Trump addressed the nation about coronavirus and appointed Vice President Mike Pence to lead a task force to combat the spread of the coronavirus. (Politico)

(8) On March 5, 2020, VP Pence said the coronavirus test is eligible for coverage and treatment under Medicare and Medicaid as an “essential health benefit” and will also be covered by all private insurance. In addition, all 8,000 inspectors at Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will focus their inspection efforts at nursing homes nationwide “to ensure seniors at nursing homes are as safe as possible from the spread of the coronavirus.” Seniors — those age 60 and over — are most vulnerable to this coronavirus. (Med Page Today)

(9) On March 6, 2020, President Trump signed an $8.3 billion funding bill to combat coronavirus and support local responders.

(10) On March 10, 2020, Trump and Pence met with executives from America’s largest health insurance companies and secured their agreement to waive all copays on coronavirus testing and extend coverage for coronavirus treatment in all of their benefit plans. The private insurersalso agreed to cover telemedicine services, which will allow all patients—particularly among the vulnerable senior population—to be treated without feeling the need to go to a hospital or doctor’s office.

(11) On March 10, 2020, President Trump proposed to Congress an economic stimulus plan of small business loans and payroll tax cuts of a 0% payroll tax rate to ensure workers are “not going to miss a paycheck” and “get penalized for something [coronavirus] that’s not their fault”. But his proposal was met with bipartisan resistance. (Houston Chronicle)

Coronavirus precautions you should take from a medical doctor- virologist

Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that cause diseases in mammals (including bats) and birds. In humans, coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections that are typically mild, such as the common cold, but rarer forms such as SARS, MERS, and COVID-19 can be lethal.

The name coronavirus is derived from the Latin corona, meaning “crown” or “halo”, which refers to the virus particles (virions) having a fringe reminiscent of a crown or of a solar corona.

According to the CDC, in rare cases, animal coronaviruses can infect people and then spread between people. Three examples are MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and a new coronavirus, named SARS-CoV-2. The disease caused by SARS-CoV-2 is named “coronavirus disease 2019” (abbreviated “COVID-19”).

All three of these animal-to-people coronaviruses have their origins in bats. Many of the earliest patients at the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China had some link to a large seafood and live animal market, suggesting animal-to-person spread, which then became person-to-person.

As of yesterday, March 2, 2020, the CDC says in the United States there are 43 confirmed cases of COVID-19; 17 hospitalized; 2 deaths; and 10 states reporting cases (Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Washington, Wisconsin).

James Robb, M.D., F.C.A.P. (Fellow of the College of American Pathologists), is a consulting pathologist to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Office of Biorepositories and Biospecimen Research (OBBR), and is also the Leader of the cancer Human Biobank (caHUB) Biospecimens Subgroup, Latin America Cancer Research Network (LACRN) Pathology Committee, and National Community Cancer Centers Biospecimens (NCCCP) Pillar. He also serves on the Board of Governors of the College of American Pathologists (CAP). Dr. Robb’s research interests include molecular oncologic and neurotropic virology.

In other words, Dr. Robb is a virologist — a molecular biologist who specializes in virology, the study of viruses and viral diseases. The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a virus. More than that, Dr. Robb was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses in the 1970s.

Below is an email from Dr. Robb on the coronavirus precautions we should take (source: Eat This, Not That!, among many other websites):

When I was a professor of pathology at the University of California San Diego, I was one of the first molecular virologists in the world to work on coronaviruses (the 1970s). I was the first to demonstrate the number of genes the virus contained. Since then, I have kept up with the coronavirus field and its multiple clinical transfers into the human population (e.g., SARS, MERS), from different animal sources.

The current projections for its expansion in the US are only probable, due to continued insufficient worldwide data, but it is most likely to be widespread in the US by mid to late March and April. Here is what I have done and the precautions that I take and will take. These are the same precautions I currently use during our influenza seasons, except for the mask and gloves.

(1) No Handshaking: Use a fist bump, slight bow, elbow bump, etc.

(2) Use only your knuckle: …to touch light switches. elevator buttons, etc.. Lift the gasoline dispenser with a paper towel or use a disposable glove.

(3) Open doors with your closed fist or hip: Do not grasp the handle with your hand, unless there is no other way to open the door. Especially important on bathroom and post office/commercial doors.

(4) Use disinfectant wipes: …at the stores when they are available, including wiping the handle and child seat in grocery carts.

(5) Wash your hands with soap: …for 10-20 seconds and/or use a greater than 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer whenever you return home from any activity that involves locations where other people have been.

(6) Keep a bottle of hand sanitizer: …available at each of your home’s entrances. And in your car for use after getting gas or touching other contaminated objects when you can’t immediately wash your hands.

(7) Cough or sneeze into a disposable tissue: …and discard. Use your elbow only if you have to. The clothing on your elbow will contain an infectious virus that can be passed on for up to a week or more!

(8) Use latex or nitrile latex disposable gloves: …for use when going shopping, using the gasoline pump, and all other outside activity when you come in contact with contaminated areas. Note: This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! But all the surfaces where these droplets land on are infectious for about a week on average—everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs). The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

(9) Stock up now on disposable surgical masks: …and use them to prevent you from touching your nose and/or mouth. (We touch our nose/mouth 90 times a day without knowing it!) This is the only way this virus can infect you—it is lung-specific. The mask will not prevent the virus in a direct sneeze from getting into your nose or mouth—it is only to keep you from touching your nose or mouth.

(10) Stock up now on hand sanitzers: …and latex/nitrile gloves (get the appropriate sizes for your family). The hand sanitizers must be alcohol-based and greater than 60% alcohol to be effective.

(11) Stock up now with zinc lozenges: These lozenges have been proven to be effective in blocking coronavirus (and most other viruses) from multiplying in your throat and nasopharynx. Use as directed several times each day when you begin to feel any “cold-like” symptoms beginning. It is best to lie down and let the lozenge dissolve in the back of your throat and nasopharynx. Cold-Eeze lozenges is one brand available, but there are other brands available.

A final word: I, as many others do, hope that this pandemic will be reasonably contained, but I personally do not think it will be. Humans have never seen this snake-associated virus before and have no internal defense against it. Tremendous worldwide efforts are being made to understand the molecular and clinical virology of this virus. Unbelievable molecular knowledge about the genomics, structure, and virulence of this virus has already been achieved. But there will be no drugs or vaccines available this year to protect us or limit the infection within us. Only symptomatic support is available.

I hope these personal thoughts will be helpful during this potentially catastrophic pandemic. Good luck to all of us!

WA State Gov. Inslee slams VP Pence for coronavirus; then patient dies in WA

Gov. Jay Inslee with his buddy Obama

The demorats just can’t help themselves. In the midst of a medical “crisis,” they will do everything in their power to politicize the coronavirus to take down President Trump.

This is why you can NEVER work with these people to solve any problem. There is no middle ground with them. No “reaching across the aisle.”

They will not be satisfied until President Trump is done and they are back in charge. NEVER.

On Friday Washington State Governor Jay Inslee tweeted the following:

“I just received a call from @VP Mike Pence, thanking Washington state for our efforts to combat the coronavirus.

I told him our work would be more successful if the Trump administration stuck to the science and told the truth.

One day after Gov. Inslee’s tweet, the first coronavirus death was confirmed in the U.S. which happened in King County, Washington. Later in the day, Gov. Inslee declared a state of emergency over the virus, as two more King County cases have emerged. Three confirmed cases and it’s a state of emergency.

AP’s fact-check shows Democrats lied about Trump administration’s coronavirus readiness

As Rush Limbaugh observed, Democrats have weaponized the coronavirus (Covid-19) in yet another effort to take down President Trump.

But even the Associated Press (AP) says Democrats are distorting the Trump administration’s coronovirus readiness.

From the AP, February 26, 2020:

Democratic presidential contenders are describing the federal infectious-disease bureaucracy as rudderless and ill-prepared for the coronavirus threat because of budget cuts and ham-handed leadership by President Donald Trump. That’s a distorted picture. For starters, Trump hasn’t succeeded in cutting the budget.

He’s proposed cuts but Congress ignored him and increased financing instead. The National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention aren’t suffering from budget cuts that never took effect.

A look at some of the Democrats’ remarks:

MIKE BLOOMBERG: “There’s nobody here to figure out what the hell we should be doing. And he’s defunded — he’s defunded Centers for Disease Control, CDC, so we don’t have the organization we need. This is a very serious thing.” — debate Tuesday night.

JOE BIDEN, comparing the Obama-Biden administration with now: “We increased the budget of the CDC. We increased the NIH budget. … He’s wiped all that out. … He cut the funding for the entire effort.”

THE FACTS: They’re both wrong to say the agencies have seen their money cut. Bloomberg is repeating the false allegation in a new ad that states the U.S. is unprepared for the virus because of “reckless cuts” to the CDC. Trump’s budgets have proposed cuts to public health, only to be overruled by Congress, where there’s strong bipartisan support for agencies such as the CDC and NIH. Instead, financing has increased.

Indeed, the money that government disease detectives first tapped to fight the latest outbreak was a congressional fund created for health emergencies.

Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.

The broader point about there being “nobody here” to coordinate the response sells short what’s in place to handle an outbreak.

The public health system has a playbook to follow for pandemic preparation — regardless of who’s president or whether specific instructions are coming from the White House. Those plans were put into place in anticipation of another flu pandemic, but are designed to work for any respiratory-borne disease.

Among the health authorities overseeing the work are Dr. Anne Schuchat, CDC’s principal deputy director and a veteran of previous outbreaks, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIH’s infectious disease chief who has advised six presidents.

“The CDC’s response has been excellent, as it has been in the past,” said John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health, which works with government at all levels to improve the nation’s response to high-risk health crises. Some Democrats have charged that Trump decimated the nation’s public health leadership, but Auerbach said CDC’s top scientific ranks have remained stable during the past three years….

The U.S. closed borders to travelers from China to buy time as preparations began but, “classically that’s not the way you address an outbreak,” Fauci told The Associated Press this week. “If you do it for a very limited period of time, temporarily until you can get things in order in your own country, it could have some benefit. But in general, the concept of closing borders, you cannot do that for an extended period of time.”

But with infections now in much of the world, one of the questions for U.S. policymakers is whether it’s time to modify any of those border or travel restrictions.

As stocks plummet in coronavirus hysteria, actress Patricia Arquette wants economy to tank to hurt President Trump

Yesterday, February 27, 2020, the Dow plummeted nearly 1,200 points — its biggest one-day point drop ever — as worries over the coronavirus (COVID-19) possibly spreading sent stocks spiraling down.

The stock market tumbled once again today, capping its worst week since the 2008 financial crisis as investors continue to be worried over COVID-19’simpact on the economy, never mind the fact that the seasonal flu sickens and kills more people in the United States than the coronavirus:

  • According to the CDC, as of the week ending February 22, 2020, there have been 32 million to 45 million flu illnesses; 310,000 to 560,000 flu hospitalizations; and 18,000 to 45,000 flu deaths in the 2019-2020 flu season in the United Statees.
  • As of today, February 28, 2020, there are only 15 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the United States, but not a single death. The states with confirmed cases of COVID-19 are Arisona, California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Washington, and Wisconsin. (CDC)
  • As of today, February 28, there are 82,294 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 2,804 COVID-19 deaths in the world. China accounts for 78,630 of the cases and 2,747 of the deaths. (WHO)

Not content with the precipitous stock market drop from the coronavirus hysteria, 51-year-old actress Patricia Arquette posted a malicious message to Instagram urging people to participate in a one-day economic shutdown on March 2 in order to hurt President Donald Trump by inflicting even more damage on the U.S. economy.

Arquette tells her followers to refrain from making any purchases — presumably, including food and medication — for a 24-hour period to “cause a $238.2 billion dollar blip on the federal government’s records.”

David Ng reports for Breitbart that it is unclear who is organizing the boycott, but it appears to have originated with the Twitter account @Lee8772, which said that there will be similar day-long boycotts each month through this November’s election. Only emergency purchases will be exempted from the boycott. @Lee8772 says:

This will not cause us to go into a recession, but it will slow the economy down. It will show the GOP that Americans are coming together & we’re demanding changes starting with the removal of Trump.

Arquette isn’t the first Hollywood celebrity to advocate for damaging the U.S. economy in order to hurt President Trump, even if it means ordinary Americans will have to bear the brunt of a slowdown. The unfunny self-proclaimed comedian Bill Maher has repeatedly said on his HBO show that he hopes the U.S. goes into a recession if it means that the Trump administration will suffer. He said in 2018: “I hope for a recession to get rid of Trump. Sorry if that hurts people.”

I like and second this response to Arquette’s malicious call to tank the economy from Instagrammer jenrac16:

I’m going out and spending triple

Indeed, let’s spend, spend, spend this coming Monday, March 2!!!

Spread the word to your family, friends, and acquaintances!
