Oil is not the Only U.S. Commodity in Trouble

Guest Piece by Nathan Kaspar

A good deal of this audience follows DBDailyUpdate for updates on the oil market. Much beyond Shale Oil, the broader commodity market is very sick. No, not with COVID-19, but from the ongoing lock-down of the national economy. President Trump took action yesterday to address meat packing plants staying open, but food production is much more complex than simply slaughtering animals and packaging the meat to go to the grocery store.

The Oil and Food industries were forever linked in 2005 with the passage of the Renewable Fuel Standards. This mandated certain blending levels of ethanol into our gasoline. While support of this is key if you are running for president and want to win the Iowa Caucus, turning half of the nation’s corn crop into fuel is dubious even if the government weren’t largely subsidizing it. Over the last 15 years though, the food markets have largely stabilized and reached “new normal” for how, how much, and what crops we farm to support the ethanol, human food, and animal feed industries.

The problem with this food and fuel link means that when there is a problem on the 90% side of the gasoline equation, the 10% side (Ethanol) is going to get cracked like a whip. Just like our nation’s oil producers are stuck with a surplus of oil with nowhere to put it, Ethanol producers also have no place to store additional production. As “stay at home” orders went from 2 weeks to months, Ethanol producers have had to change from slow-down, to shut-down, to extended furloughs. This is having a dramatic impact on food commodity prices, and it isn’t for the better.

Those prices can be found at the chart linked at the bottom of this piece.

The connection between ethanol and commodity prices is through distiller’s grains (both wet and dry). The byproduct of ethanol production is extremely high in protein and fat, and is sold in it’s wet form to feed lots or dried and sold to feed producers and dealers. These animals can’t simply eat whole corn in their diet as a substitute, so the result is that any commodity with protein in it is trading MUCH higher than last year.

The numbers for DDGS on the linked USDA chart are not valid. While there may be some long term flex contracts being fulfilled, most traders are simply listing (NQ) for DDGS. Most feed companies have been told that they can’t even think about taking delivery of DDGS until the 1st week in June at the earliest.

Some examples from the USDA chart of note:

Cottonseed Meal. $320/ton now vs $260 a year ago.

Bone meal is $335/ton vs $230 last year.

Corn Gluten Meal (byproduct from making corn syrup) is $582 vs $400 last year.

Wheat Mids, $140 vs $95 last year.

Corn prices, however, are terrible (trading at $102 vs $128 last year). This is only going to get worse as the ethanol shutdown continues. With half the nation’s corn crop going to ethanol every year, take 2 months out of that production and that’s 1/12th of the nation’s corn that is going to sit in a silo. Commodity prices are only starting to reflect it, and the cost of feeding animals is going to get much, much worse before the situation resolves itself.

This could very likely have long-term ripple effects through the harvest season in fall through November. Just in time for the election.

COVID-19 will likely be gone by the summer, but the shock-wave from the (largely unjustified IMHO) economic shutdown of the entire country is going to be felt for years.

If you have freezer space, put some steaks in it now. The people who are feeding the animals you hope to eat in 3 or 4 months are looking at the feed prices and trying to decide to sell off now, or allow their animals to be malnourished. Feed Lots with captive animals are having to pay exorbitant prices for their feed, and aren’t going to be able to pay ranchers enough at market to justify putting the cows on the trailer.

The time to completely re-open markets was 3 weeks ago. If you have the ear of a politician who supports the lock down, you might want to let them know how they are killing the food supply.

In New Tweet, Bill de Blasio Goes Full-on Hitler [UPDATED]

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II

Going full-on Hitler is never a good look, Mr. Mayor. – Holy cow, it’s hard to even know what to say about this latest tweet from New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio. Just take a look at it and then contemplate its implications in the context of the long, sorry history of political leaders who have previously decided it was time to start “rounding up the Jews” in their own cities or countries:

If nothing else, the utter and complete lack of self-awareness on display here is stunning, even shocking.

Of course, the media will try to studiously ignore this since de Blasio is a Democrat. But try to imagine the uproar that would justifiably resonate throughout the nation’s news media if such a tweet or statement targeting “the Jewish community” were to be issued by any Republican mayor, governor or member of congress. It would be epic.

And note that the use of the term “the Jewish community” betrays the fact that Mayor de Blasio views those of the Jewish faith to be somehow separate and apart from “normal” New York society.

This is LITERALLY HITLER, y’all.

Image may contain: 1 person

Shocking. I don’t even know what else to say other than that.

UPDATE: By contrast, here is the tweet the Mayor issued to Muslims in his city last week at the beginning of Ramadan:

Image

ummmm…doesn’t that look to you as if he is actually encouraging Muslims to congregate in large groups?

Despicable. And shocking.

The Inescapable Conclusion: General Mike Flynn Was Framed

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

You could never make this stuff up, folks. Never in a billion gazillion years. – During what had to have been the most ironic “Town Hall for Women” event in world history yesterday, given the two participants’ history of serially abusing women, the Pantsuit Princess spent about a minute and a half bestowing her formal endorsement upon Quid Pro China Joe Biden. Hilariously, the elderly, clearly impaired and rapidly declining presumptive nominee of the Democrat Party actually appeared to nod off on camera for about 15 seconds while the Fainting Felon was droning on:

Continuing to run this declining man out there in front of the cameras by his staff and his craven wife is disgusting. This is elder abuse, folks. There are laws against this stuff. Is there no one on earth who actually cares about Joe Biden as a human being? The evidence available to us on the public record indicates the answer is ‘no.’

Speaking of evidence on the public record… – The law firm that formerly represented General Mike Flynn (which also happens to be the law firm in which former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder is a partner) just suddenly and completely coincidentally realized this week that it had been illegally withholding 6,800 pages of potentially exculpatory evidence in the Flynn case and turned it all over to the court of Judge Emmet Sullivan yesterday without prior notice.

Why, it was like, totally just a “communications error” according to the firm, Covington and Burling, y’all. The firm assures us that the sudden “discovery” of this mass of documents had nothing at all to do with the fact that, last Friday, the Justice Department itself had released what current Flynn attorney Sidney Powell believes to be a treasure trove of exculpatory evidence, likely including emails and other communications between DOJ lawyers and the original Covington and Burling lawyers who worked on the case.

Think about it: If the DOJ treasure trove contains emails between those parties that had not already been turned over to the court by Covington and Burling, that would be clear evidence that the firm had been withholding relevant documents that should have been turned over years ago. So, presto changeo!, the firm suddenly “finds” 6,800 pages of relevant documents that had been withheld for years and blames it all on a clerical error. Nothing suspicious about this at all, folks – it’s all totes normal and stuff, or something.

Is everyone beginning to understand now why General Flynn decided to fire these lawyers last year?

Apparently growing weary of all of the lawyerly shenanigans that he has allowed to continue to take place in his court for years now, Judge Sullivan responded to Covington and Burling’s latest muck-up by ordering the firm to examine all of its files one more time and come back to his court on Monday, May 4 and swear under oath that it has now turned over every document in its possession that is in any way relevant to this case. The evidence available on the public record indicates that the Judge has a better chance of winning the Mega-Millions lotto than he does of getting an honest response from this firm.

Sullivan is not the only guy who is tired of all the nonsense. Crusty old Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, who chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee during the first two years of this travesty of justice, sent a letter over to Attorney General William Barr on Monday, accusing former Acting AG Oily Rod Rosenstein of obstructing the Judiciary Committee’s previous inquiries into the DOJ’s conduct of this case, and urging Barr to make all documents related to the case public as soon as possible.

Here’s that letter:

Image

Image

The inescapable conclusion to come to, given all of the evidence that we now have on the public record, is that Sidney Powell is exactly right when she says that General Mike Flynn was entrapped and framed. He was framed not by some Mafia outfit, but by an utterly corrupt FBI and DOJ whose senior personnel were functioning just like some Mafia outfit. Even worse, it is beginning to appear as if Flynn’s own original lawyers may have actually been working in cooperation with those corrupt FBI and DOJ personnel who, remember, were all tied into the Mueller Investigation and all the rampant corruption that entailed.

This is an epic, disgusting scandal for the ages. If Judge Sullivan, after the revelation of all of this monstrous deception and chicanery taking place in his court, cannot at long last summon the personal integrity to summarily dismiss this case, then the time has well and truly arrived for President Trump to issue a full and complete pardon to General Flynn.

And then, just for fun, the President should make every leftist head in America explode simultaneously by re-hiring General Flynn, not as his new National Security Advisor, but to replace the worthless, corrupt Christopher Wray as Director of the FBI.

That, folks, would be real justice.

That is all.

Trump Invokes the DPA to Protect the Nation’s Food Supply Chain

The Afternoon Campaign Update (Because it’s too Early to Call it Evening)

On Tuesday afternoon, President Trump made a crucial move to protect the nation’s food supply chain. Faced with the closings of a number of food processing plants around the country – some of the largest of which, under the Smithfield name, are owned by Chinese interests – the President invoked the Defense Production Act to order food processing plants to remain up and running in order to ensure the nation’s supermarket shelves remain stocked with meats and other food.

Naturally, the Twitter perpetual outrage mob that has been actively praying for people to start going hungry so that we will have rioting in our streets  immediately knee-jerked to idiotic reasoning such as this from the mentally-impaired Jennifer Rubin:

Other leftist talking points you can find in response to Ms. Jacobs’ tweet include these gems:

– He’ll use the DPA on Tyson, but not to get more testing kits made! (Of course, he hasn’t needed to use it to get test kits made since so many great U.S. companies voluntarily stepped up to the plate to do it.)

– Workers have died in these plants!!!! (No, they haven’t.)

– What about Tyson’s liability??????? (He’s going to sign an EO to take care of that issue.)

And on and on the inanity goes. Expect to see all of these moronic talking points rolled out this afternoon by Juan Williams on The Five.

This is absolutely the right action for the President to take given the state of play right now. The U.S. population has taken all of the restrictions related to the government’s response to the Wuhan Virus quietly to this point, largely because of the various stimulus bills designed to mask all the financial hardships and the fact that no one is going hungry because of it to this point. But that peaceful acquiescence and the increasingly tiresome “we’re all in this together apart” messaging would go down the tubes in a hurry if the pork, chicken and beef suddenly disappears like all the toilet paper suddenly did back in March.

You want to see massive civil unrest in this country like Jennifer Rubin and her fellow DC dimwit brigade are wishing for? There is no surer way to bring that about than through large-scale interruptions in the food supply chain.

This is the right move at the right time by President Trump. All else is just so much noise parroted by a pack of critics who never missed a meal in their privileged lives.

That is all.

GOP States vs. Democrat States: The Differences are Very Clear

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

With Texas Governor Greg Abbott now moving fairly aggressively to reopen Texas and its economy (the 10th largest on earth), the differences in approach between Republican governors and Democrat governors are now becoming increasingly stark.

Abbott now joins Republican governors like Brian Kemp in Georgia, Henry McMaster in South Carolina, Ron DeSantis in Florida, Kristi Noem in South Dakota and Kevin Stitt in Oklahoma in lending a sense of urgency to getting businesses reopened and people back to work, rescinding stay-at-home orders in the process. Noem, along with Republican governors in 6 other states (Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Utah and Wyoming) in fact never even issued such an order for her state.

Unsurprisingly, not a single Democrat governor showed similar restraint. Democrats literally live for the chance to lord political power over common people, and the Wuhan Virus provided the best such opportunity most of them have ever had to do so. As New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy told Tucker Carlson with a smile on his face recently, he “wasn’t even thinking about the Bill of Rights” when he issued his own order, and there can be little doubt that most, if not all, other Democrat governors also never gave such arcane concepts as individual freedoms a second thought. Drs. Fauci and Birx had advised governors to use their judgment in ordering their people to stay at home, and by God, the judgment of every Democrat was to knee-jerk to such an order.

Today, as Republicans are now rescinding the orders they issued, here are the actions we have seen in recent days from Democrat governors around the country:

Virginia Governor Ralph KKK Coonman Northam – On April 15, he extended his order for the closure of “non-essential” businesses to May 8. On April 23, he extended his ban on “non-essential” surgeries for another week (there sure is a lot of “non-essential” stuff going on in Virginia, huh?). On March 31, he extended his stay-at-home order through June 10. Truly, this a man on a mission.

Michigan’s plastic-faced Strong-Woman Gretchen Whitmer – After earlier extending her stay-at-home order through May 15, announced on Monday that she wants the legislature to step in to further extend it for another 28 days. Whitmer claims to have the power to do this herself (power she has exercised, rightly or wrongly, already on several separate occasions) but after receiving pushback from members of both parties in the legislature, she is now looking for political cover.

California Governor Gavin Newsom – While Newsom has surprisingly performed fairly reasonably during this crisis – with notable exceptions, like getting burned when he purchased thousands of Chinese respirators that don’t work – it is important to note that his own stay-at-home order doesn’t even have a planned expiration date. In mid-April, he rolled out 6 requirements that must be met in order for him to begin rolling that order back. As of today, those requirements have not been met, and aren’t likely to be met anytime soon.

Pennsylvania Governor Tom WolfExtended his stay-at-home order through May 8.

New Jersey Governor Phil MurphyOn Monday announced that his own indefinite stay-at-home order would remain in place “until further notice.” At the same time, he outlined a gradual plan for reopening that hinges almost entirely on the current false media narrative about “more testing.” In other words, he’s really enjoying this exercise of authoritarian power and has no plans to give it up anytime soon.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo – What can you say about this guy? His feckless lack of leadership and preparation have been largely responsible for this outbreak across the United States, and the media-directed national panic that led to so many needless draconian restrictions across the country, as governors of both parties failed to realize that their states were not like New York, not at all. Cuomo still, to this day, has not shut down the petri dishes on rails that are New York City’s subway cars. To. This. DAY. He got caught short on ventilators because, in 2015, he made the decision to forego buying 15,000 of them at bargain prices, spending the money instead on nebulous “climate change” nonsense. He has utterly and completely failed to protect senior citizens living in the state’s nursing homes, which have been the centers for a huge portion of New York’s massive COVID-19 death toll.

Naturally, Cuomo’s performance in this pandemic has made him a folk hero to the corrupt news media and most Democrat voters, and he is a virtual shoe-in to be re-elected to an unprecedented fourth term in office this November, 2022.

Holy crap.

It’s hard to be optimistic about America’s future when voters keep electing and re-electing Democrats to positions of power. Granted, Republicans aren’t a hell of a lot better, but as we have seen during this epidemic given to us by the ChiComs, they at least exhibit some level of respect for the rights of their citizens, and observe the need to take those into consideration while also taking actions necessary to protect the public.

Where the respective governors of each party are concerned, the contrasts in approach are in fact very stark and unambiguous.

Keep that in mind when you cast your votes in November.

That is all.

Gov. Abbott Announces Major Business Reopenings in Texas on May 1 [UPDATED]

The Evening Campaign Update

After being criticized for two weeks as he allowed other state governors to get in front of him in opening their economies, Texas Governor Greg Abbott finally announced at a Monday press conference that he will allow major new business reopenings in his state beginning May 1.

Here are the Highlights:

– Abbott said he would allow the “stay-at-home” order issued on April 1 to expire as scheduled at midnight, April 30.

– What the Governor refers to as “Phase 1” reopenings will include businesses such as restaurants, theaters, salons, retailers and shopping malls being able to open their doors but limiting customer traffic to 25% of their allowed capacity. UPDATE: Salons will not be allowed to reopen on May 1. They may be allowed to reopen in Phase 2, on May 18.

UPDATE: Sole proprietorships may also reopen on May 1. One smart reader asks, what if you’re a sole proprietor who runs a barber shop? Good question.

– In less-populated counties that have experienced 5 or fewer Wuhan Virus cases thus far (which, as we have previously noted, includes more than half of the state’s 254 counties), businesses will be allowed up to 50% of capacity.

– Also allowed to reopen on May 1 are licensed medical practitioners such as doctors and dentists.

– Hospitals will also be allowed to take in additional patients and perform more elective surgical procedures, so long as they continue to reserve 15% of their bed space for COVID-19 patients.

– The Governor conditions these reopenings on the continued observation of social distancing guidelines that have been in effect since mid-March, and recommends – but does not require – citizens to wear masks while venturing outside the home.

He also specifically notes that his guidelines supersede local orders. This would specifically include the order issued last week by Harris County Judge Lina Hildalgo requiring her citizens to wear masks, subject to arrest and fines. Abbott noted that his order disallows local officials the ability to impose such penalties in their local orders.

– Gov. Abbott also said that sports activities will be allowed to resume on May 1, but only to the extent that they involve no more than 4 participants. So basically, we’re talking about golf, tennis and other similar sports.

All of that and more is part of Phase 1. I will update this piece with further information as it comes available.

The Governor also discussed Phase 2 of his plan, which would begin effective May 18, if – and it’s an important IF – the data shows that the state has not seen an increase in the number of Wuhan Virus cases in the two weeks following the beginning of Phase 1 on May 1.

Phase 2 would include the opening of additional businesses, the increasing of capacity usage, and the allowance of additional sports activities involving more participants. It would also include permission to hold summer camps subject to social distancing guidelines.

All in all, the Governor’s plan is exactly what millions of Texans have been waiting to hear from him in recent days: An aggressive, strategic approach to reopening Texas’s economy in a way that makes sense, and clearly demonstrates an awareness of the geographic and demographic diversity of this giant state. Obviously, the voices of those Texans have been heard in Austin, and the Governor and his Strike Force responded in a way that makes sense for everyone.

It’s nice to have some good news to report for a change.

God Bless Texas.

No More Daily Wuhan Virus Task Force Briefings – Will America Survive?

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

UPDATE: Naturally, about an hour after I posted this piece, the White House reversed itself and called a Task Force briefing to begin at 5:00 ET. Mark Steyn, guest-hosting the Rush Limbaugh show, seems to think the President is going to simply make a speech. We will see.

Somehow, I think we’ll all be ok. – The White House announced this morning that, for the 3rd straight day, there will be no special press briefing by the Coronavirus Task Force this evening. The corrupt members of the White House press corps, all but a few of whom function as agents for the Democrat Party, have now gone into outright panic over seeing their daily opportunity to grandstand for the TV cameras while arguing with and interrupting the President of the United States suddenly evaporate.

That, of course, was always the major flaw with the format of these briefings. Once you give this collection of sociopaths, hacks and general reprobates a shot at being on camera, they will always, without exception, abuse that opportunity as a means for self-promotion. That reality, combined with President Trump’s inability to avoid speculating and getting into interminable exchanges with corrupt reporters like Jonathan Karl, Jim Acosta, Yamiche Alcindor and Paula Reid, ultimately robbed these briefings of any real informational value.

The capper came following last Thursday’s briefing, during which Bill Bryan, Under Secretary for Science and Technology at DHS, detailed the results of a study that demonstrates that heat and sunlight help to kill the Wuhan Virus. Instead of focusing on this very positive news and asking questions designed to obtain as much information about the study as possible, the corrupt reporters instead focused other subjects and then spent the next 3 days promoting the false narrative that the President had advised the public to drink Clorox and inject Lysol.

So, you combine an undisciplined President with an utterly corrupt press corps, and this is the inevitable outcome. Which is too bad since, during their first 2-3 weeks, these daily press briefings had actually consistently delivered very useful information to anyone who watched them live. But even that benefit had long since passed, as the briefings ultimately became platforms for the President and Vice President to repeat the same statistics and advisories over and over again.

Presumably the President will return to his habit of engaging the corrupt reporters during meetings in the White House or as he leaves to travel aboard Marine 1. Today, for example, he has invited the press to be present when he holds a meeting with various major business leaders.

This format is vastly preferable for one overarching reason: The reporters never get their faces shown on TV. This mutes their ability to engage in shameless self-promotion and renders them far easier to control. It also makes it much easier for the President and others to ignore irrelevant questions.

Again, this is all too bad, but it is what it is. It’s as much President Trump’s fault as it is the fault of the press, but the reality is that if we had anything resembling an ethical press corps none of this would have become a problem.

At the end of the day, the country will somehow survive without its daily dose of Yameche Alcindor or Jon Karl.

That is all.

General Mike Flynn’s Abusers Must be Punished [UPDATED]

Today’s Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

“The top of the FBI was scum…human scum.” – President Donald Trump, April 18

That they were, and with Christopher Wray in the Director’s job, apparently still are. We have known for more than two years now that the human scum at the top of the nation’s utterly corrupt highest law enforcement agency in January, 2017 framed Trump’s first National Security Advisor, General Mike Flynn, got him fired, and that Gestapo Chief Robert Mueller and his staff then bullied him into entering a guilty plea by threatening his family. That’s what we have known for all that time just through what has been available on the public record.

Thanks to the December, 2019 Horowitz Report and the margin notes and footnotes that have been declassified over the last month, we know that the human scum atop the FBI from 2015 through 2019 systematically defrauded the FISA Court through the conscious use of false information, often provided by agents of foreign governments, including Russia. And, after last week’s forced release of additional documents in the Flynn trial, we know that corrupt DOJ lawyers, acting in concert with corrupt FBI officials, withheld exonerating evidence in that trial for well over two years.

In her supplemental filing last Friday, Flynn’s attorney Sidney Powell wrote, “All this new evidence, and the government has advised there is more to come, proves that the crimes were committed by the FBI officials and then the prosecutors. The government’s misconduct in this case is beyond shocking and reprehensible. It mandates dismissal.” She is a master of understatement.

If Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo is right, the dismissal of the case may be coming this week. Here’s a tweet she issued Sunday evening:

“It was all a total fraud. A set up.”

UPDATE: Here is a clip of the report Bartiromo aired on her program Monday morning (it takes a minute to load, so be patient with it):

Again, we have known these things beyond and reasonable doubt since 2018 just from what has been on the public record, yet the corrupt “human scum” within the FBI and DOJ have chosen to keep stringing this case along with unending delays and supplemental filings in a vain effort to find some graceful way out of it.

That effort hit a wall after Attorney General William Barr appointed a Missouri U.S. attorney to review the DOJ’s internal communications in the case specifically to determine whether key evidence had been withheld by DOJ employees. The release of said key evidence last Friday demonstrated that this examination had borne fruit.

Few people in American history have been as heinously abused by federal law enforcement and the U.S. court system as has General Flynn. That systemic abuse goes all the way up to the judge in the case, Federal District Judge Emmet Sullivan, who has steadfastly refused to dismiss the case even in the face of the overwhelming evidence of rank, possibly criminal misconduct by lead prosecutor Brandon Van Grack and his underlings.

Given his established pattern of working to protect the institution of the DOJ above other considerations, it is likely that Barr will try to let the case be dismissed without also punishing all the myriad bad actors involved in it, many of whom, like Van Grack, are still on his staff. That would be a malfeasance on his own part, but there is little anyone will be able to do about it. At the very least, Van Grack and every DOJ employee whose fingerprints are on this travesty of a frame-up should be fired, and Peter Strzok and Joe Pientka, the FBI agents who falsified their 302 reports from their initial interview of Flynn in January, 2017, should have the book thrown at them by John Durham.

Regardless, it will be a happy day to see General Flynn exonerated, if Bartiromo’s information is correct. Let’s pray it is, for his sake and the sake of his family.

That is all.

The Corruption of the U.S. News Media Continues to Intensify

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Every time you think the American news media could not possibly become more depraved and corrupt, they go and fool you again. – Let’s go around the horn – as all the baseball players used to day back when America still had baseball – and take a little review of some of the highlights of despicable, corrupt media behavior over the past couple of days…

Example #1: It’s the question that doesn’t get asked that reveals the corruption.

Guests on the various Sunday morning fake news shows included Georgia Gubernatorial loooooooser Stacey Abrams, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar and fascist Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. These are three of the harem of Democrat women being mentioned as potential running mates for Quid Pro China Spindly Finger Joe Biden.

Guess which current hot topic none of these potential veep candidates were asked by their respective Democrat agents posing as journalists? That’s right: The subject of Tara Reade’s increasingly credible sexual assault allegation targeting Crazy Uncle Joe and his spindly finger.

Proving yet again that the sin of omission is one of a corrupt journalist’s favorite tricks of the trade.

Example #2: San Fran Nan gets the same “question that isn’t asked” favor from utterly corrupt hypocrite Jake Tapper.

Watch as Nancy Pelosi gets the kid glove treatment from Tapper as she recites her false talking points:

Now, a real, actual journalist might have thought to ask the despicable Speaker a few follow-up questions:

– Ummm…didn’t you call President Trump a racist for implementing his travel ban back on January 31?

– Do you not realize that the “tens of thousands” of people you are talking about are American citizens?

– To be clear: Are you really stating that those thousands of American citizens should have been left imprisoned in China?

– To be clear: On February 24, 24 days after the President issued his travel ban, you were filmed walking around San Francisco’s Chinatown telling people that it was completely safe and there was nothing to worry about. Are you admitting you were wrong to do that?

But of course, nothing but crickets from the Democrat operative who gets paid by CNN to protect depraved Democrats like Pelosi.

Example #3: These people are soulless ghouls.

Watch as MSNBC’s hack Nicolle Wallace celebrates the Wuhan Virus because it hurts President Trump’s polling numbers:

Quote: “He’s down at 38%. Pence is lower than him. I mean, he needs those people whether he likes what they say or not. And I wonder what you think about whether or not there’s some silver lining there, that some of the things that we’ve been talking about for three years may be finally catching up with him.”

You could never make these people up. Not in a million gazillion years.

Example #4: These people are soulless ghouls, part II.

And speaking of hacks, here is NBC’s Chuck Todd celebrating the Wuhan Virus for giving us cleaner air and thus, “better views.”

I’ve pointed out several times now that one of the outcomes of our dealing with the Wuhan Virus as we have done has been to deliver the America envisioned by radical environmental alarmists in their “Green New Deal”: Decimated airlines, limited travel in cars, an utterly destroyed tourism industry, negative economic growth, millions of people out of work, cowering in their homes hoping for a government handout.

But hey, our carbon footprints are lower and we have better views, so isn’t life wonderful?

This is your corrupt national news media in action, folks. Never, ever forget who and what they really are. These people hate you, and would rather you were dead.

That is all.
