Monday News Roundup: WSJ Blasts Biden’s Big Blunder as Trump Just Keeps on Winning

Tired of all this WINNING yet? – Not tired of winning. Not even a little bit. President Donald Trump held a brief press conference on Sunday afternoon to announce that the FDA had approved the emergency use of convalescent plasma in the treatment of the viral gift from China. The move came after the FDA had determined that the use of the plasma, which is collected from patients who have had and recovered from the China virus, is safe and results in a significantly higher recovery rate for new patients.

Naturally, the corrupt news media was outraged, and the President cut the presser short after receiving a stupid question from one of the assembled reporters. But the media’s childish behavior isn’t keeping the markets from reacting positively this morning, as Dow futures jumped up over the 28,000 mark:

Here’s the reality about the media’s pathetic reaction to this great news for COVID sufferers: They know that good news on COVID means good news for the economy, and that in turn means good news for President Trump’s chances of re-election. These are, in other words, people who are actively hoping their fellow Americans will continue to die from the virus because they believe it helps Joe Biden and the communist Democrats.

That’s a pretty special kind of ghoulishness right there.

CORONAPANIC UPDATE:

Any questions?

The Wall Street Journal Editorial Board blasts Biden’s big mistake. – On Friday, Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Handsy Farty China Joe Biden told a fawning fake reporter in an interview aired last night that he’d be happy as hell to shut the U.S. economy down again next year if “scientists” like societal menace Anthony Fauci told him to do so. Today, the WSJ editorial board blasts the Unfrozen Caveman Candidate for what is going to turn out to be a major campaign mistake:

Now we know why his advisers have kept Joe Biden under wraps. Asked in an ABC interview airing Sunday night whether he’d be willing to shut down the economy again to head off a new wave of coronavirus infection, he replied: “I would shut it down. I would listen to the scientists.”

Ah, the resort to scientists. But which scientists? The truth is that the experts have been wrong numerous times in this pandemic, and they often disagree. They first said masks don’t help but now say they do. They said ventilators were vital but soon learned other clinical methods worked better. Most of all, they counseled strict lockdowns, but we’ve learned the hard way that shutting down the country can be more costly than the virus.

President Trump listened to his public-health advisers in March and ordered a two-week shutdown that extended to six weeks. The shutdown dragged on as infections and deaths in the Northeast surged, though hospital beds in most of the country remained empty. Thirty million Americans filed for unemployment by the end of April, and states slowly began to lift their lockdowns as the economic and public-health damage became unsustainable.

The high costs are slowly becoming known. A study this month in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) reports that newly identified cancers fell 46.4% from March 1 to April 18, which will likely lead to cancers detected at more advanced stages with worse clinical outcomes.

Doctors at the Cleveland Clinic last month reported the incidence of stress-induced cardiomyopathy from March 1 to April 30 increased four-fold. Doctors at Tufts Medical Center last month warned that psychological distress, fear and emotional stress, “coupled with worse clinical outcomes when patients avoid seeking effective care, creates a double hit from this pandemic in which morbidity and mortality associated with cardiac disease might well overtake the risks directly linked to the virus itself.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention last week reported that 13.3% of Americans in June said they had increased substance use to cope with pandemic-related stress. About half of those ages 18 to 24 reported severe anxiety and depression, and a quarter said they had seriously considered suicide in the last 30 days.

People being cooped up at home for long periods amid enormous stress has also led to an increase in domestic violence. A new study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston reports a spike in injuries indicative of domestic abuse, especially severe injuries from strangulation and use of weapons, from March 11 to May 3.

[End]

On and on it goes. There is literally no “science” or data that indicates that lockdowns are effective in any way in reducing the death count. Any “scientist” who continues to counsel for lockdowns after the calamitous results that the Fauci/Birx/CDC lockdown as wrought on our country should be sent to Gitmo and locked down for good.

But that’s who Biden would listen to if he’s elected. Hopefully, the President has learned his lesson about listening to Fauci the hard way.

On the not-so-good-news front… – White House Senior Adviser Kellyanne Conway announced that she is leaving her post at the end of the month. Conway said she is leaving in order to spend more time with her family, which, given that her family includes her piggish nitwit husband George Conway, will not be the most pleasant task, but no doubt her children need more time with their mother.

George Conway simultaneously announced he would be leaving his current joke endeavor, the Lincoln Project, a NeverTrump operation that consists of about 40 country club Republicans rationalizing ways to support the Marxist/Anarchist policies currently being pushed by the communist Democrats. With both Kellyanne and George now spending more time together at home, the situation would seem ripe for a reality TV series on Bravo.

But seriously, everyone should wish Kellyanne well: She has persevered through almost four years of constant Democrat assault on her boss and conspiracy mongering by the corrupt news media and somehow managed to do it all with a style and grace few others would have been able to muster. She apparently still loves her piggish, dimwitted slob of a husband, but hey, everyone makes their choices in life.

Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon… – Democrat-sponsored rioters in Portland managed to set a police precinct station on fire during their 86th consecutive night of rioting, as reported by the great Andy Ngo:

Madness. Brought to you by the communist Democrat Party. That’s the truth.

That is all.

    And in international news, strong rumors that Kim Jong-Un is in fact deceased and that his bloodless sister has taken power.

    But then again, who knows what is true in the Hermit Kingdom.

    Time to let the federal building burn, along with the Leftist judges inside who won’t. prosecute criminals: their blood will be on their own heads.

      Full copper jackets will also quell the communists quickly too. The communists are allergic to copper, they go into shock and die…

      Excellent idea! Round up the judges and lock them in the courthouse.

        And the GS bought and paid off prosecutors. Both are redundant, especially if they are aren’t going to prosecute real criminals and only prosecute selected citizens.

    Metal markets are still basically flat while the stock market is on an uptick again… Good signs…

    This is very good news for Trump as the economic engine starts winding up again. As this happens more people will be back working with satisfaction ratings going up and demoncrap panic as well. You can bet you bottom dollar the demoncraps will be looking towards their next planned hair on fire event to keep the chaos going…

    Maybe a shooting at a Trump rally, several arrests already before the RNC. Maybe a school is a target, a mall… They’ll have something in the works, wonder what Ms Muffet has planned.

      Their continuing hysterics are all beginning to ring a bit hollow at this point. It is like they are seen through the wrong end of the telescope as they are receding down a long tunnel.

      They are encountering the reality of physiological adaptation.

    Someone needs to tell Biden Dr. Pepper is not a medical expert. Back to the basement he goes.

    Kellyanne will go down in history as having spearheaded the greatest campaign our country has ever seen. Sadly she has to go back to take care of her looney tunes husband and teenage child who is taking on dangerous liberal tendencies. Thank you for your service Kellyanne.

    George Conway is a mix of Fred Flintstone, Jim from According to Jim, Elmer Fudd and Arnold Ziffel (who arguably has a higher IQ)

    I hope Ms. Conway divorces the pig, and takes her kids to a saner environment. And I hope he ends up as bacon.

      If she hasn’t dumped his sorry ass by now she probably never will. I just don’t understand how conservative and supposedly conservative women like Kellyanne and Mary Matlin hook up with loudmouth slugs like the George Conways and James Carvilles of the world when I am available.

      Just like with the one way Democrats, many, but not all, wacko liberal women seem to be able to convert conservative men to the left, but I don’t know of any conservative men, or women converting libs of either sex to conservativism. Like heroin, crack, and regular cocaine, liberalism must be a real powerful drug that fries the brain and appeals to entirely too many otherwise intelligent people.

      Particularly the black male vote, and particularly in the northern Rust Belt states.

    So now the monster Scott Peterson gets to escape the needle, courtesy of the California Supreme Court (the state court, not the federal 9th circuit appeals court).

    No comment from his murdered wife and her unborn child.

    So how many of the major networks will bump out of Kim Klacik’s speech tonight?

    I’m guessing all of them. Can’t have blacks thinking independently for themselves.

    The smarter ones know that Biden is a guaranteed loser:

    This is all about political positioning in the aftermath.
