Positive Signals From Trump and Barr

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

This is a tweet to remember. – Many, including yours truly, have expressed concerns that the “cure” for this Chinese virus being prescribed by the federal, state and local governments may, if it becomes any sort of long-term effort, end up creating an economic catastrophe of such proportions that it would end up being worse than the effects of the virus itself. Last night, it became apparent that President Donald Trump shares that concern.

At 10:50 p.m. eastern time Sunday evening, the President issued this all-caps tweet:

This can only be taken as a positive signal that the President at least intends for this massive closing of a huge portion of our national economy to be a temporary phenomenon. With the questionable motives of Anthony Fauci and the CDC, and the natural inclination by bureaucrats at the FDA to work to prolong timelines in their endless turf protection efforts, it is good to know that, while the President has rightly followed most of their recommendations to this point, he remains skeptical and focused on producing the best possible outcome for the American people.

For further emphasis on this message, the President re-tweeted it at around noon ET on Monday, as this piece was being written. It is clearly something he wants all of his various audiences – you, the corrupt media, congress and his team of advisors – to understand. This is an extremely positive signal.

Meanwhile, on the John Durham front… – In an interview published Monday morning in the Wall Street Journal, Attorney General William Barr made sure to let it be known that his and U.S. Attorney John Durham’s effort to “investigate the investigators” has not fallen victim to the Chinese virus. From a report in the Washington Examiner:

Attorney General William Barr told the Wall Street Journal in an interview published Monday that Durham, the top federal prosecutor in Connecticut, was in Washington, D.C., last week working on the high-profile inquiry with staffers.

“There’s some discombobulation, but part of what we’re trying to do is keep up the mission,” Barr said of the Justice Department’s commitment to proceed with criminal investigations, prioritize coronavirus-related fraud prosecutions, keep the justice system functioning amid court closures and trial suspensions, and pursue other Trump administration priorities during a deadly outbreak.

Last week, Fox News reported that Durham was on pace to finish his “investigation of the investigators” by the summer. One source “suggested the investigation could end as soon as July.” But another “said it could be closer to September, based on Durham’s progress, which could be hindered by the coronavirus pandemic rocking the nation and the globe.”

Rep. Jim Jordan, an Ohio Republican, also said this month that Durham’s inquiry is “due to be completed sometime this summer.”
[End]

So, at least if you believe William Barr – a prospect that becomes harder and harder as time goes on without a single indictment of any of the treasonous members of the Obama-era Coup Cabal – Mr. Durham is still on the job and working towards some kind of conclusion.  That conclusion had ultimately better include multiple indictments and prosecutions of the real bad actors who worked so hard to destroy our democratic processes, and not just of low-level flunkies who make convenient scapegoats.

Failure to do that would create a devastating blow to millions of Americans’ faith in our legal justice system.

So, thanks for the positive update, Mr. Barr, but some real actions would speak much louder than your comforting words.

Or, as The King would have put it:

A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain’t satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me
Satisfy me baby

 

That is all.

Yes, the Democrats and Their Corrupt Media Toadies are Weaponizing the Corona Virus

Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)

This is just sick, and Coronavirus had nothing to do with it. – Rush Limbaugh took a lot of crap on Tuesday after he said on his Monday program that the Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the nation’s news media were conspiring to “weaponize” the Coronavirus against President Donald Trump. Since Rush said that, though, the accuracy of his remark has been proven beyond a shadow of any doubt at all.

It started with the statement Tuesday morning by CDC official Dr. Nancy Messonnier – who happens to be the sister of Deep State snake Rod Rosenstein – that a Coronavirus pandemic that impacts the United States is somehow “inevitable,” and that citizens should begin making preparations for massive disruption in their daily lives. Ms. Messonier’s wildly alarmist remark came despite the fact that, to date, the U.S has tallied just 44 cases of Coronavirus – and ZERO deaths – within its borders, all but a handful of which were voluntarily imported by our government in the form of citizens who had been infected on an Asian cruise ship.

Her remark also came as the Dow Jones Industrial index had risen by over 150 points at its opening. The Dow tanked by more than 800 points after she offered her opinion on the matter, an opinion that conflicts with the messages coming out the rest of the government.

This morning, permanent bureaucrats at the FDA got into the act, making similar remarks about a supposed looming domestic epidemic just as the Dow had risen by more than 400 points. The index lost almost all of that gain within 10 minutes of the FDA’s statement.

Despicable Chuck Schumer spent most of the day on Tuesday doing everything he could to portray the administration as uncaring and incompetent – a direct shot at Ms. Messonier’s qualifications when you think about it – claiming that the $2.5 billion in additional CDC funding the President requested over the weekend just isn’t enough. Because no amount of federal deficit spending is ever enough for any Democrat, right? Right.

CBS got into the act at last night’s Democrat debate, with its moderators offering a series of powder puff, leading questions about the coming end of the world, which all 7 depraved Democrat presidential candidates took turns addressing in the wildest alarmists terms.  By the time they were done, you’d have guessed the entire nation was under quarantine and that this virus with a 2% mortality rate in China was as deadly as Ebola.

But that kind of rank panic-mongering still wasn’t quite enough for these depraved skunks and snakes. On Wednesday morning, the Democrats who are in the process of turning the City of San Francisco into a 3rd-world quality toilet bowl declared an actual state of emergency over the Coronavirus. This declaration came at a time in which that city has experienced a total of … wait for it … wait for it … ZERO cases of that virus within its city limits, county limits, or regional limits.

It’s no different than if the San Francisco Democrats had decided to declare a state of emergency about the coming Klingon invasion.

Yes, it’s all very demented. Yes, it’s all extremely despicable. Yes, every time you get to thinking the Democrats and their media flunkies could not possibly begin to plumb the depths of rank depravity even more than they already have, they never fail to surprise you.

But hey, this is who these people are, and it is what they do.

A pox – a literal pox – on all their houses. Please.

That is all.
