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!

President Trump appoints VP Pence to lead response to coronavirus, former bartender AOC mad

Of course she is. TDS-infected people never take a break. Especially when the narrative is to take down President Trump with Russia, Russia, Russia Coronavirus.

Spare me your indignation, AOC. You’re a former bartender who runs around pushing climate extremism with absolutely NO background in that area of expertise. Yet she stands in judgment of other people’s credentials.

Hyperbole is all she’s got.

Is the Coronavirus weaponized to use against Trump?

Ask yourself the following questions,

Question set A(Answer yes or no)

“Has the media ever lied to you?” “Would the media over sensationalize anything to fulfill their personal aspirations.?” ” Would the media weaponize the media and use it against Trump?”  “If so, have they done it in the past?”  “If so, and they were caught doing it, would they do it again?”

*Media meaning “Main Stream Media, proven untrustworthy, CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, etc….whatever, Fake news,  HIJ, QRS…you get my point.”

Question set B(Answer yes or no)

” You catch someone on camera stealing from you.  They lie to you when you ask them about it.  Would you trust that person?”  “If given the opportunity, do think they will steal from you again?” “Would they lie to you again?” “Would you ever believe anything that person said about anything?”  “Because this person lies to you and cannot be trusted, would you continue to have that person in your life?”

Most of the people I know would end up with the same answer for each of the questions. The question “Because this person lies to you and cannot be trusted, would you continue to have that person in your life?” should be an easy no.  Most people don’t like to have people in their life that flat out lie and steal from them.  Keep in mind that I use the word “trust” loosely.  Obviously there are many different levels of trust for different people, situations, etc.

The point I’m trying to make is the media are nothing more than people.  People that lie as much,  if not more than that lying untrustworthy person you no longer want in your life.  There is no sane reason why any person should believe anything the media says or does.  Here’s the problem.  I’m not insane. You’re not insane.  So why do we watch it?  “Sometimes they lie, sometimes they don’t”. Nope, they’re always lying.  It has to be for “entertainment”.

That “entertainment” is destroying our country and it’s latest exploit seems to be the Coronavirus.

My research tells me that the Coironavirus is another bio weapon.  It also tells me that all is not what it seems.  Since I cannot provide my sources, consider that to be just  my opinion.

There are other “opinions” that are pretty much in alignment with what I have learned.  I believe there are some key points that should be reviewed.  The following was mentioned in the comments the other day.

 

William- “It is important to realize how infectious epidemics are created in the public mind by TPTB for their skeer value, as vectors of social control. The so-called coronavirus epidemic is the latest, following SARS, Zika, Bird flu, West Nile, etc., all of which were just background noise. And of course HIV/AIDS. My sense is that they have been experiments but sooner or later we’ll get the Big One and then we’ll have mandatory vaccines, quarantine internment camps, suspension of constitutional liberties. C-virus makes me uneasy, they are hyping it and it doesn’t seem to have characteristics of an infectious epidemic. They reported a huge spike in cases but this was due to diagnosing it on the basis of pneumonia with no lab tests for the “virus”, neglecting to mention that pneumonia is very common in China, accounting for 300 thousand deaths a year. Probably due to the appallingly bad air quality. So we see pictures of people wearing masks but they wear masks anyway. They did the same with AIDS ’93, changing the definition to include people with fewer than 200 T4 lymphocytes per mililiter (or microliter, I forget which) of blood in the presence of HIV. “Presence” being determined by antibody reactions to certain proteins, no “HIV” necessary. So the “HIV test” was a machine that went “ping”. This re-defintion arbitrarily doubled the number of AIDS cases overnight and by 1997 two-thirds of people diagnosed with AIDS weren’t even sick, the first time in history that a 100 percent fatal disease was diagnosed on the basis of “good health”. So they stopped publishing the figures, the little people don’t need to see this stuff anyway, they just get confused. And now Trump, in the SOTU, says we have to end the AIDS epidemic. But there is no AIDS epidemic and there never was. And now coronavirus. So yeah, I’m uneasy”

Myself- “Yes, I understand what you are saying. I think there is a good possibility that when things cool down with the corona virus there will be a push to try to pass mandatory vaccinations. Using the coronavirus, influenza to scare people into supporting the vaccinations. The highest estimate of influenza cases in the USA is 45 million illnesses.
That dates from 2010 to present. Highest estimate of deaths related to influenza would be close to 61,000.. They don’t tell people that a lot of those deaths are from other causes and not the influenza itself. Still, the amount of deaths is low considering the amount of people infected. So I’m thinking “scare tactic” to push an agenda. Makes me think about “Fun Vax”.
Thanks for the enlightenment on the whole HIV thing. Admittedly, HIV is not a topic I spend too much time on. I did take a class on it. But that was years ago when I saw things different than I do now.”

William- “Flu kills tens of thousands annually in this country, usually the very old, very young, and people with compromised immune function. And malaria kills a million people a year, year after year. So far the C-virus has killed 1500 people, or so we’re told. I don’t believe anything that comes out of China and I believe even less of what the MSM talking heads are spouting. But 1500 people is nothing, a statistical blip. TPTB use managed chaos as their MO and releasing a deadly pathogen into populations would be unpredictable and unmanageable. It’s far more effective for them to create a virtual epidemic/emergency as they did with HIV/AIDS. It’s utterly irrelevant as a public health issue, if they cut off funding for it it would disappear. Or “climate change”, they have taken normal stable climate and turned it into a crisis. At least in the minds of many many people. There’s a lot of stoopid in this land of ours. But all the infrastructure is ready, the quarantine camps ( I understand there is one in WA State that is being used to sequester Americans who have returned from China), the executive orders issued by GWB and Hussein that give absolute authority to the CDC, as well as the Model Emergency Health Powers Act (MEHPA) that is totalitarian in nature. So I hope things die down with corona. Most Americans aren’t really interested so it may be a dry run. I’m trying to convince myself of that anyway, so I can let go of it. Until the next one”

 

Now from Rush Limbaugh(Not in comments.  The following comes from Rush Limbaugh’s web page.)

“Overhyped Coronavirus weaponized against Trump”

RUSH: “Folks, this coronavirus thing, I want to try to put this in perspective for you. It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump. Now, I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus. (interruption) You think I’m wrong about this? You think I’m missing it by saying that’s… (interruption) Yeah, I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks.

The Drive-By Media hype of this thing as a pandemic, as the Andromeda strain, as, “Oh, my God, if you get it, you’re dead.” Do you know what the — I think the survival rate is 98%. Ninety-eight percent of people get the coronavirus survive. It’s a respiratory system virus. It probably is a ChiCom laboratory experiment that is in the process of being weaponized. All superpower nations weaponize bioweapons. They experiment with them. The Russians, for example, have weaponized fentanyl. Now, fentanyl is also not what it is represented to be.

If you watch cop shows, then you probably… Stick with me on this. If you watch cop shows, you probably believe that just the dust from a package of fentanyl can kill you if you’re in the same room with it. Not true. Not true. Even the cheap kind of fentanyl coming from China that’s used to spike heroin… They use fentanyl ’cause it’s cheap. It gives a quick hit, doesn’t last very long, which is really cool if you’re trying to addict people.

But it doesn’t kill people the way it’s projected on TV. It can if you OD on it. But inhaling a little fentanyl dust is not going to cause you to lose consciousness and stop breathing as they depict on cop shows. It’s dangerous. Don’t misunderstand. But it isn’t the way it’s portrayed in popular criminal TV shows, cop shows, and so forth and so on. The coronavirus is the same. It’s really being hyped as a deadly Andromeda Strain or Ebola pandemic that, “Oh, my God, is going to wipe out the nation. It’s going to wipe out the population of the world.”

The stock market’s down like 900 points right now. The survival rate of this is 98%! You have to read very deeply to find that number, that 2% of the people get the coronavirus die. That’s less than the flu, folks. That is a far lower death statistic than any form of influenza, which is an annual thing that everybody gets shots for. There’s nothing unusual about the coronavirus. In fact, coronavirus is not something new. There are all kinds of viruses that have that name. Now, do not misunderstand. I’m not trying to get you to let your guard down.”

 

Maybe Rush reads FOTM.   Be sure to do your own research and please keep an eye out/on for that lying ……..  Personally, I think the MSM should go down for Treason.  There is a difference between Freedom of speech and what they are doing.   They are intentionally misleading Americans and trying to bring down POTUS.  They are trying to tank our economy. They are destroying America.  One lie at a time. The MSM have made themselves “the Enemy”.  A decision they made on their own.
