The Mid-Day Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Does Not Break For Lunch)
Tell us something we didn’t already know. – Every American should take note of the fact that the United States Congress chose to leave Washington D.C. for well over a full month in the midst of the most severe national and global crisis since September 11, 2001.
This represents absolute dereliction of duty on a grand and unprecedented scale.
Congress has basically classified itself as a non-essential entity. But hey, we’ve kind of known that all along, haven’t we?
Wait. We needed MIT to conduct a study to figure this out? – The New York Post carried a story this morning headlined “MIT study: Subways a ‘major disseminator’ of coronavirus in NYC”.
Excerpt from the report:
The paper, by MIT economics professor and physician Jeffrey Harris, points to a parallel between high ridership “and the rapid, exponential surge in infections” in the first two weeks of March — when the subways were still packed with up to 5 million riders per day — as well as between turnstile entries and virus hotspots.
“New York City’s multitentacled subway system was a major disseminator — if not the principal transmission vehicle — of coronavirus infection during the initial takeoff of the massive epidemic,” argues Harris, who works as a physician in Massachusetts.
You don’t say. Wonder what tipped them off?
Speaking of utter absurdities… – The corrupt news-fakers at Reuters carried a story this morning with this real, actual headline: “China says WHO has said no evidence coronavirus was made in a lab”.
Ok, so, Reuters quotes China, which quotes the corrupt WHO, which Reuters knows is just reciting China’s talking points. The article itself consists of 2 paragraphs containing maybe 75 words, with zero constructive analysis.
No hydroxychloroquine for her! – Just when Fredo gets towards the end of his own alleged recovery period from the Wuhan Virus, his wife allegedly comes down with it:
CONFIRMED: CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said his wife Cristina has also been diagnosed with the Chinese coronavirus. https://t.co/dx1NjyaZyE

After demonizing hydroxychloroquine on-air for weeks solely because President Donald Trump has endorsed its use, Fredo mysteriously refuses to discuss what medications he has been treated with to fight the illness. Perhaps his wife will eventually be more forthcoming.
And now a message from your favorite budding James Bond villain:
Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds. Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them. The world needs @WHO now more than ever.

Texas’s stellar Senator Ted Cruz saw this plaintive tweet from Gates, and responded as only Ted Cruz can do:
So Bill Gates is unhappy that USA halted our funding for the WHO, after they parroted CCP propaganda & aided China’s Wuhan cover-up. Well, quick math: USA funds $400m/yr to WHO & Gates is worth $103bn…he could personally fund the US share for 257 years! https://t.co/UoqaoHfWYz
