What is it With Democrats and Their Masks?

The Evening Campaign Update (Because the Campaign Works Overtime)

What is it about Democrats and masks? – Given that they literally created and funded the domestic terrorist group Antifa, you would think these people would be experts on wearing masks in public. But you would be wrong in thinking that.

Take a look at Houston Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee:

I mean, c’mon, she doesn’t have an abused staffer who has enough guts to risk being slapped, fired or screamed at by informing her that the mask only works if it covers both your mouth and nose?

Obviously not.

Then, there’s Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who went out of his way to inform the entirety of the corrupt news media that he would be wearing a mask when in public:

Again, dude, it doesn’t work that way. None of this works the way you think it does.

Then there was this fiasco yesterday from Virginia Governor Ralph KKK Blackface Northam:

Hey, at least he stayed within his personal tradition – if you can’t wear blackface, a black mask is a decent substitute for any overt racist Democrat governor.

Then there’s this dude – he isn’t wearing a “mask” per se, but he is most definitely a loyal Democrat voter:

Here’s a group of Democrats in front of the U.S. Capitol Building bearing a statue of their favorite masked idol:

They are what the corrupt media invariably refers to as “peaceful demonstrators.” Because, of course they are.

If this mask-wearing guy lived in America he’d definitely be a Democrat:

Oh, hey, and speaking of the ChiComs, CNN has a new corporate flag:

That’s all I can take for now. Be careful.

The Peril of Running a Country Based on “Models”

Mid-Day Update: Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

There are models, and then there are models. I build models of ships as a hobby, I strive for accuracy, and after consulting up to a dozen sources I probably have the most accurate models of various navies possible for a reasonable price. The models, however do not talk to me so I have no actual confirmation that my model ships are absolutely accurate.

I can’t remember the actual name of the Bill and Melinda Gates ‘model’ that the CDC is using exclusively, I don’t care – it doesn’t matter, but for the sake of discussion I’ll call it the CNN model.

Apparently all the ‘experts’ at the CDC are using only the CNN model, which is like saying the pundits are only using one political poll from the MSM (D) to be able to determine the odds of who is going to win a political race. At this point the CNN ‘model’ is as accurate and as biased as a MSM (D) political poll.

Image

The chart above shows what utter garbage the IMHE model truly is.

Why can’t we at least use the RCP (Real Clear Politics) method where they average numerous polls, however flawed they might be, as a means to get a clearer picture of what is really happening with the spread and impact of this ‘pandemic’? It would also show which models are the most accurate.

Better yet, how about actually inputting actual and broad based data into the model, rather than worse case agenda driven speculation! Typically a collaboration of anything – ‘diversity’ of ideas if you will – will generate a better and more accurate result; otherwise we may well get a highly inaccurate outlier, which is what appears to be happening.

It is a given that our political polling is generally skewed to the left to drive rather than reflect public opinion, with the majority of polls going that way, while the Rasmussen poll typically shows right of center results and it has an enviable and historically accurate record. Rasmussen is often shown as an outlier but since it is included in the RCP equation it drives the data towards a more accurate reflection of real public thought. We apparently have no such counter ‘model’ showing ‘diversity’ in fighting this economy-crippling ‘pandemic’.

The real question is how come we are not using data from several ‘models’? How come the methodologies used in this one ‘model’ are not better shown? Even the largely flawed methodology of the MSM political polls is usually available to be analyzed where they oversample Democrats, or they poll all adults, or registered voters instead of likely voters.

It has been said statistics don’t lie, but statisticians do, and GIGO (garbage in, garbage out) results in flawed results – so why are we continuing to follow this paradigm regarding this ‘pandemic’ when so much is at stake and the ‘experts’ are wrong so often? By any logical and objective analysis the ‘experts’ and their one ‘model’ fits all system has been consistently and grossly wrong. That being the case, the ‘pandemic’ modeling that EVERYONE at the CDC seems to relying on must be extremely flawed.

By the way, this GIGO standard is also used in most if not all ‘Climate Change’/’Global Warming’ theoretical ‘models’ to produce the desired apocalyptic and dire results. This becomes the left’s template by which they produce ‘solutions’ to another unseen enemy. The ‘solution’ always calls for the destruction of our capitalistic economic system via draconian world taxes and major behavioral changes. Ever notice how dictatorial communist systems or developing countries are never called to reform their ‘carbon footprint’ in the name of “saving the planet”?

Their ‘expert’ opinions derived from their opaque crystal ball are and will always be wrong when GIGO is inputted, which has produced dire economic results for millions of people. So why are we determining the future of a twenty plus TRILLION dollar economy and the fate of 328 million people’s livelihood and health using such a flawed one size fits all system?

Two reasons for putting so much credence in this poll, I mean ‘model’:

One, it is just the way bureaucracies everywhere have always done things – never think out of the box, and be slow to react to new facts, opinion, input, and legitimate presidential orders;  and

Two, an absolute hatred for the current president: Donald Trump. If as much effort was put forth by the MSM (D) in calling out the officials on all levels who are responsible for being so unprepared and not ensuring adequate equipment, rather than pointlessly bashing Trump’s efforts at every opportunity, we would be in much better shape.

That is an absolute reality, because ever since he became president his agenda has been opposed and he has been maligned and demonized by his vast array of opponents. In their minds he can do nothing right, and ALL his programs and ideas are failures, and will lead to disaster. Add in a generous supply of slanderous accusations and fraudulent investigations and you get the current situation where the goal is not to work together in any way, but to hamstring Trump and make sure he get a little as possible accomplished.

The fact is Trump and his policies have been proven correct and beneficial to the country virtually every time while the MSM (D) and their ‘experts’ have been proven wrong. I can’t remember when our media and their ‘expert’ opinions have been right in any meaningful way on any story.

The other purpose of all this misinformation, doom and gloom pessimism leveled at the outsider Trump is to send a powerful message to any future reform-minded person that they better not dare try to invade the District of Corruption’s turf. This is the war that is actually being fought: Who runs and controls this country – the entrenched unelected bureaucrats of the Deep State and their Globalist Allies or We the People?

Any intelligence analyst worth his salt, or ‘journalist’ or ‘news’ organizations for that matter, would never use only one source for information, no matter how trusted. Anything the MSM (D) puts out concerning Trump is nothing better than supermarket tabloid trash and in most cases worse. Real analysis involves gathering and vetting even proven correct sources from as wide a spectrum as possible.

A competent and objective analysis of any problem requires constant scrutiny. Reliability and accuracy of sources is always questioned and confirmed. Look at any detective in any crime documentary and you will see that the facts must mesh with the evidence. If one irrefutable fact clears a suspect, the suspect is cleared regardless of the other circumstantial evidence that makes him appear guilty. In other words, if any switch in a circuit is turned off, the light doesn’t come on.

Anyone can be wrong or make an honest mistake once in a while, but to be so consistently wrong in vital areas where people’s mental, physical, emotional, and economic health and livelihood hinges on them getting it right, is at best unforgivable, and most likely criminal.

The Day the White House Press Corps Went Full ChiCom Propaganda

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

Thanks to Jonathan Karl for making my point for me. – I have repeatedly noted in recent weeks the fact that pretty much all of the big corporations who own all of the nation’s fake, corrupt news media outlets have been infected with ChiCom money and business interests just as America has been infected with the ChiCom-generated Wuhan Virus.

As if to emphasize that point for me, ABC News’s Jonathan Karl, the current head of the White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) invited a “reporter” from a Hong Kong-based media operation that is in fact majority owned by ChiCom interests, including a former propaganda officer for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) to question the President of the United States of America.

Here’s an excerpt from a report at The National Pulse:

The Hong Kong/Cayman Islands based Phoenix Media is actually owned in large part by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and by a former CCP propaganda officer.

As of 2018, Phoenix Satellite Holdings was owned by Liu Changle (37.1% of shares). Changle is a “former PLA propaganda official who is close to senior Chinese government leaders”.

Changle previously worked as a propaganda officer for China National Radio (then known as the Central People’s Broadcasting Station).

A further 20 percent of the company is owned by Extra Step Investments Limited, in turn owned by China Mobile Hong Kong, which itself is owned by the Chinese government-owned China Mobile.

Eight more percent of the company is owned by China Wise Investment Ltd, owned by the Bank of China.

This means at least 65 percent of the company is owned by the government of China.

For journalist Youyou Wang to claim she works for a private company is an outright lie.

[End]

Karl, one of the most execrable hacks in the entirety of the corrupt press corps, obviously hoped that the planted propagandist could entrap the President into giving some sort of controversial answer that would generate negative fake news stories. But Trump, as is his habit, immediately caught onto the ruse and called the ChiCom out.

Watch this clip, followed by a transcript:

 

Transcript:

Trump: [The ChiCom government] has agreed to spend $250 billion, many billions of dollars in our country, much of it going to farmers and manufacturers. So, I’ll let you know – I hope they’re going to honor the deal, I’ll let you know.

ChiCom Propagandist: Are you cooperating with China?

Trump: Who are you working for, China? Are you with China, are you with a news paper? Who are you working for?

ChiCom Propagandist: I don’t work for the…Hong Kong Phoenix TV.

Trump: Who owns that, China? Is it owned by China?

ChiCom Propagandist: It’s based in Hong Kong.

Trump: Is it owned by China? Is it owned by the State?

ChiCom Propagandist: No, it’s not, it’s a private owned company.

Trump: Yeah, ok.

Look, I’ll let you know. I’ll give you a good answer in a few months. I want to just see what they do. Because it’s time for them to help us. It’s time, right now, for China to help us. And hopefully they do. And if they don’t, that’s ok, too. But we signed a deal, it was signed with great good will and spirit. And it’s time that our farmers benefitted, that our manufacturers benefited, and we’ll see whether or not that deal is honored.

I think it will be because I know President Xi, who I like and respect. I think he will honor the deal he made with us. It just went into effect four days ago. I would … we’ll see whether he does or not. In fact, I called up, just a little while ago, I said, how are the farmers doing with respect to China? Are they buying the product as anticipated? And the answer was, yeah, I think so, but it wasn’t the most positive. But it was starting, the deal was just getting started. So, I’ll let you know.

For many many years, China ate our lunch because we had people in this position I’m in right now that allowed China to get away with absolute murder.

ChiCom Propagandist: [tries to interrupt with a question about the virus]

Trump: [ignores her] But we are now dealing with China and we’ll see what happens.

[End]

Now, it wasn’t the most controversial of exchanges because President Trump quickly realized who he was talking with. But I wanted to memorialize it here because it captures the moment when the White House press corps, which includes all of our nation’s major corrupt media outlets, went full-on into the tank for a clear and present enemy of our country.

We are at war with China whether the media wants to admit it or not. The ChiCom government intentionally and with clear malice attacked us and most other nations of the world with a virus that will end up killing thousands and very likely causing the most severe global recession since the Great Depression.

Inviting this propaganda agent for the ChiCom government is no different than if the WHCA had brought in a Nazi or Japanese propagandist there in 1943, or a Russian propagandist into the White House during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

President Trump told the nation in January of 2017 that these corrupt and highly-compromised media operations were the enemies of the people. Yesterday, Jonathan Karl and the WHCA went out of their way to unambiguously prove that point. This was the moment when the thin veil came completely off.

There is no worse, more destructive class of people in our country than the members of the WHCA and the media operations that employ them.

That is all.

Tyranny is the Deadliest Virus

Guest Contribution from Karen Kataline

Why do men lust for power over other men?  Here, I refer to “men” in the classical sense, as in “mankind.”

Such men are never content to be masters of their own fate. They are doggedly determined to be masters over others as well.

This ubiquitous human failing is rooted in hubris, ignorance and insecurity. It has also proven to be as contagious and deadly as any plague. Genocides have grown out of such tyranny when people tried too late to reject authoritarianism and the sick ideologies that have often accompanied it.

Some, including myself, are stupefied by how few people understand the difference between being asked to do something and being ordered with the power and force of government to do it.

Before COVID-19 changed life as we formerly knew it,  we saw numerous manufactured protests over false stories and petty grievances. The primary complaint was usually that the offending word or action constituted tyranny. On it’s face, it was ridiculous.

Today, those same Leftist agitators and protestors could not have rushed fast enough to comply with orders that are the very definition of tyranny.  Not only have they complied but they’ve been among the first to bully those who dare to question or maybe even protest!

How did we arrive at a place where so few Americans understand the definition and the preciousness of Liberty?

Indeed, it appears that we are dealing with an ugly virus which is deadlier to some age groups and geographic areas than others, but the same politicians who have zealously shut down entire states have stubbornly rejected any good news. They are committed to ramping up fear which makes it conveniently more likely that citizens will view their extreme orders as necessary and proper.

It took governor Jared Polis of Colorado 45 minutes into one of his numerous press conferences to mention that  9 out of 10 people won’t require any medical treatment at all–not even an aspirin. We’re thankful this isn’t the Bubonic plague.  If it were, heightening public fear would hardly be necessary.

The more that Americans dutifully comply with increasingly strict orders from politicians and government bureaucrats to shut down their lives and their livelihoods and confine themselves to their homes, the stricter and more stringent those orders continue to become.

In Laredo Texas people are now required to wear a face mask when going out in public or risk a $1,000.00 fine.  New York’s Socialist Mayor didn’t just demand that churches and synagogues close, but he threatened to shut down one synagogue “permanently” because they defied his orders.

New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo is telling families to distance themselves from one another even inside their own homes. Can video policing be far behind?  In some states, phone companies have made cell phone location data available to government officials to enable mass enforcement of stay-at-home orders.

Authoritarianism breeds even more authoritarianism and, like a virus, it spreads. We now have “social shaming” and spying on one’s neighbors, all with the nodding encouragement of the same government bureaucrats who continue to ramp up fear and intimidation.

The virus of tyranny has also spread from governor to governor, from “asks” to orders, and then, to fines, punishment and threats of imprisonment. It hasn’t mattered how biased, subjective or extreme their dictates and demands have been. For example, pot shops and public transportation have been deemed essential in Colorado, but traveling alone in one’s private vehicle or visiting Hobby Lobby are considered “non-essential” and are therefore, forbidden. Is it merely a coincidence that the former two things have been perennial favorites of the Left while they have always detested the latter two things?

What sort of a mentality cannot tolerate the rights of others to self-determination, personal freedom, and responsibility?  Take away responsibility, and you take away freedom as well. That’s why it’s not surprising that the first endeavor of Socialists is to take away responsibility from a willing public with a velvet glove and then take away their freedom with an iron fist.

Perhaps most disturbing is that so many Americans don’t understand that they live in the most exceptional country in history precisely because it was created to afford every citizen the greatest possible individual freedom and personal responsibility. America’s power and prosperity, which Socialists have so desperately wanted to blunt, was built on exactly those values.

If Liberty isn’t held as a moral imperative, a virus, or anything else, can and will become the excuse to rob us of it.

As the virus of tyranny continues to spread through our nation, it is not only possible but essential that we take care of our Liberties as well as our health.  If we don’t, we will lose both.

Hydroxychloroquine: The Light at the End of the Tunnel

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

We told you several weeks ago about the Orange County, New York doctor – Vladimir Zelenko – who has had tremendous success in treating hundreds of symptomatic coronavirus patients with a combination of hydroxycholoroquine and antibiotics. That course of medication is now being copied by many doctors around the country, despite the best efforts of Dr. Anthony Fauci and the corrupt news media to hide the crucial information from the public.

This morning comes news out of Los Angeles of another doctor, Anthony Cardillo, who is experiencing similar success in treating his own patients. His approach is slightly different from Dr. Zelenko’s as reported by local station ABC7 News:

A Los Angeles doctor said he is seeing significant success in prescribing the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc to treat patients with severe symptoms of COVID-19.

Hydroxychloroquine has been touted as a possible treatment for COVID-19 by President Trump among others, but it remains controversial as some experts believe it is unproven and may not be effective…

Dr. Anthony Cardillo said he has seen very promising results when prescribing hydroxychloroquine in combination with zinc for the most severely-ill COVID-19 patients.

Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free,” Cardillo told Eyewitness News. “So clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

So, yet again, we are seeing that President Donald Trump was right, and the media/Democrat establishment arrayed against him is wrong. The near-100% success rate of this drug is why the federal government recently ordered 29 million doses of it to have on-hand to distribute around the country.

That success rate is why the craven Democrat governors in Nevada (Sistak) and Michigan (Whitmer) quickly reversed their rash, politically-motivated decisions to ban the drug two weeks ago. It is why Democrat New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made the decision to prevent pharmacies in New York City from handing out hydroxychloroquine, saving the state’s limited supplies of it for patients who require hospitalization.

Why does the demented, corrupt news media hate hydroxychloroquine (HC) so viciously? Because they, in the Trump Derangement Syndrome hysteria, want to keep our nation shut down and dying through November in the hopes that destroying the U.S. economy for a generation or two might help the impaired Joe Biden limp over the finish line.

In their warped world, the existence of an actual, near-100% effective cure for the Wuhan Virus represents a threat, not the godsend it actually appears to be. Because the existence of an actual cure will enable the President to do what he has wanted to do all along: Start getting America back to work beginning next week.

For Dr. Fauci, who is so obviously little more than a tool for Big Pharma, the existence of a cheap, well-known, plentiful drug that is part of a cure for this virus will deny his allies an eventual payday that would be worth many billions of dollars. People like Fauci don’t want to see a cure for anything: They want to keep Americans hooked on drugs with weird names that advertise in 60 second TV ads that contain 50 seconds of disclaimers about all the harm this drug will do to you if you actually take it.

And it’s not just the drug companies – it’s also their consultant hangers-on. Most Americans aren’t aware of the existence of whole cottage industry of consultants who get paid millions of dollars to invent names like “Spiriva” for the drug companies. Those people live in hatred and fear of a 70 year-old concoction with a clinical name like hydroxychloroquine. Why, there’s no money in that!

Fauci’s self-worth is also completely tied up in the invention of yet another “vaccine” that he continues to tout as the “ultimate solution” which lies 12 to 18 months down the road, at best. The existence of a cheap and plentiful drug whose near-100% success rate so vastly out-strips the 30-40% success rate of the “vaccines” Fauci and the NIH push on the American public related to other viruses today represents a clear and present danger to his wildly overblown base of power in this country.

With New York’s rates of new infections and fatalities now starting to decline and the predicted major outbreaks in other parts of the country failing to materialize, the clear existence of a safe and effective cure and testing for this virus will soon allow the Trump Administration to shift from these incredibly destructive “flatten the curve” measures to a true strategic approach:

  • Quarantine those who have tested positive for the virus;
  • Encourage those in high risk categories (elderly/heart patients/lung disease patients) to remain under the “stay-at-home” mode until the outbreak has run its course;
  • Treat the sick;
  • And get everyone else back to work while wearing masks and continuing social distancing.

This strategic approach is coming, and sooner than the media/Democrat propaganda complex would like.

Coincidentally, as I was writing this piece, President Trump issued this tweet:

Indeed there is, thanks to hydroxychloroquine and the doctors who have had the foresight to go against the Democrat/media mob and use it. God bless them all.

State Regulators Hold The Key To U.S. Participation In A Global Oil Supply Deal

The energy media was filled with speculation on Friday and Saturday about how much higher crude prices might spike on Monday as OPEC and Russia prepared to hold an emergency conference call meeting that day. That speculation has now evaporated as the call has been postponed, now scheduled to take place on Thursday.

As the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday, “Saudi Arabia and Russia have said privately they are unlikely to cut oil output unless North American producers join in.” While Canada has signaled its willingness to be a part of a larger, global approach to cutting supply, it is unclear how exactly officials from Russia and Saudi Arabia envision the United States joining the party.

I’ve written about this several times in the past, but it deserves repeating here: America is simply not like these other countries. It is called the “United States” for a reason. The federal government of the United States has no existing authority to just cause oil wells to be turned off and on at the snapping of a president’s fingers.

Yes, as we saw in the wake of the tragic Macondo blowout and spill in April, 2010, a president can declare an environmental emergency and cause all production to be shut in in the Gulf of Mexico. But beyond 3 miles of the coastline (roughly 12 miles offshore Texas) the Gulf of Mexico is a federal province. The order issued on May 27, 2010 by President Barack Obama to shut-in Gulf of Mexico production applied only in waters of 500 feet or more in depth, limiting it to areas safely within the federal province. In this way, he avoided challenges from state governors that would have certainly resulted had he attempted to shut down the entire Gulf, including all state waters.

This is what the United States calls “federalism,” and it is a concept that leaders in many other countries appear to have a very difficult time grasping. Given that the great preponderance of U.S. oil production comes mainly from beneath state and private lands, solving the conundrum of any U.S. participation in any global agreement to limit oil supply will necessarily involve participation from key state regulators.

In states like Texas, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Wyoming and New Mexico, which together are producing the preponderance of U.S. crude oil, regulatory bodies possess various authorities to limit production within their state borders. Those states combined to produce about 68% of the oil produced in the U.S. in January, the latest month for which the U.S. Energy Information has data. Another 15% was produced in federally-owned waters in the Gulf of Mexico and off the Pacific coast.

Thus, at least in theory, roughly 83% of U.S. oil production could be artificially limited by the federal government and state regulators on a coordinated basis. It is important to note that this kind of coordination is the only real way for the U.S. to become a meaningful part of any such deal.

The America You See Today is the America Envisioned by the Green New Deal

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

When did Mini-Mike sell Bloomberg News to the ChiCom government? – Here are photos of two headlines running at Bloomberg.com right now:

Shameful.

Yes, doctors and nurses deserve our gratitude and applause. – But not just the doctors and nurses who are fighting to save patients with coronavirus at what appears to be several dozen hospitals around the country that are actually somewhat overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases right now. We should also be concerned about the thousands of doctors and nurses who are seeing their salaries cut back, seeing their working hours docked or being outright laid off right now because thousands of hospitals, clinics and medical practices are basically vacant.

Your corrupt news media, in its ongoing zeal to keep the national panic it created going all the way through the November election, continues to focus pretty much all of its “reporting” on a few hospitals in New York City that happen to be operating at full or over-full capacity. But the reality is that, even in the other large cities around the country, there is only one or perhaps two hospital emergency rooms that are seeing real spikes in activity.

Many of our thousands of other medical facilities have seen their businesses destroyed by counterproductive orders for everyone in America to postpone regular doctor’s appointments and elective surgeries while this pandemic endures. The stay-at-home order has also had the effect of dramatically reducing traffic-related accidents, workplace accidents  and the spreads of the flu, colds and other viral diseases that in most years keep medical facilities occupied and working with full staff.

Before the Wuhan Virus came along, our society had normalized these kinds of maladies and pathologies as just a part of life in a country with a thriving society and prosperous economy. Now that we have destroyed our nation’s economy to fight a virus that was never going to be as deadly as the seasonal flu, we see that hey, if we all just volunteer to lose or homes and livelihoods, we won’t have so many car wrecks! Isn’t that great?

What this has been is a lesson in risks, rewards and tradeoffs. Our national strategy in addressing every other communicable disease to come along in modern times has been to mitigate the risks as best we can and develop effective ways to treat the sick and help them recover. That was exactly the strategy we deployed in 2009/10 with the H1N1 virus, which infected more than 1.4 BILLION people around the globe. Yet, we have shut down the global economy over the last two months to fight the Wuhan Virus, which remains 1,398,700,000 infections short of that number.

I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record on this, but let me remind you one more time that we have invoked this frankly insane strategy based on a statistical model used by Dr. Anthony Fauci that two weeks ago projected as many as 2 million U.S. deaths from Wuhan Virus by September, a week ago projected as many as 240,000, and as of Thursday projected 93,000. If they run that model today, that number will no doubt be dramatically lower still given that the actual observed results on the ground continue to run at less than 40% of what the model has predicted.

Fortunately, President Trump appears to be tiring of allowing Dr. Fauci and his model to destroy the American way of life. On Saturday, he endorsed the idea suggested by Dana Perino of creating a second coronavirus task force that would advise him how to put American back to work as quickly as possible:

The President also continued to tout the use of hydroxychloroquine to fight the Wuhan Virus, given its proven effectiveness all over the world. Despite Fauci’s ongoing efforts to downplay the use of this safe, effective, cheap and well-known drug that won’t make any of Dr. Fauci’s “Big Pharma” buddies rich, the President announced during yesterday’s Coronavirus Task Force update that the federal government was acquiring an initial 29 million doses of the malaria drug to distribute to the many states that are now requesting it.

All of this signals that the President will soon be making the move to start putting America back to work, and get our economy and society on the road to recovery from this media-induced episode of national panic and insanity. I continue to believe he will start the move in that direction after the end of this coming week.

When that time comes, he will need all of our support more than ever, because you can be sure that the outrage coming from the Democrat/Media Propaganda Complex will be the loudest it has ever been. The last month of national shutdown have been literal nirvana for them.

This is exactly the America envisioned by the Soviet-style “Green New Deal” that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the Democrat Party rolled out last year: Less than zero economic growth; dramatically less car travel; dramatically less air travel; a dead tourism industry; the lights in Las Vegas turned off; Times Square a ghost town; Disney World dead and gone; beaches empty of everything but the seaweed that flows in with the tide; churches shut down on Palm Sunday; and the American people frightened and cowering in their homes as they wait for their tiny government checks to arrive.

If they can just find a way to shut down voices like yours and mine on the Internet, they would have exactly the America they have been working towards for their entire adult lives.

Donald Trump isn’t going to let them consolidate all of this on a permanent basis, and they will all scream like the stuck pigs they really are when he moves in the next couple of weeks to roll it all back.

Be ready.

That is all.

Fauci, Models and Democrats: A Saturday Reminder About Futility and Mendacity

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

My, how this little man’s story has changed.  – As you witness the corrupt news media desperately attempt to rewrite history about the Trump Administration’s yeoman’s efforts to deal with the Wuhan Virus pandemic, this video clip from January 21 reveals exactly what he was being advised by Dr. Anthony Fauci:

Fauci: “Well, I, you know, obviously you need to take it seriously, and do the kinds of things that the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security are doing. But this is not a major threat for the people of the United States, and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.”

Oh.

Remember: That was on January 21, when the WHO and China were still putting out the false propaganda that the Wuhan Virus was not airborne and could not be transmitted by human to human contact.

Just 10 days later, President Trump had received accurate information from some source – maybe Fauci, maybe not – and too the brilliant step of cutting off all non-essential travel to the U.S. from China. For doing that, he was roundly smeared by the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies as being an alarmist and a racist.

Remember that when you see those exact same Democrats and corrupt media toadies trying to convince you now that the President moved too slowly. Because the truth is that the President has taken decisive actions every step of the way based on the information he has been provided by the U.S. intelligence community and “experts” like Dr. Fauci.

As I said last night, this is why the President needs some new “experts.” Maybe some real experts who don’t have Fauci’s track record of abject failure.

Alex Berenson provides his daily update on how actual observed outcomes in New York dramatically conflict with the projections of Dr. Fauci’s faulty model:

Just the latest example why the Trump Administration should stop basing its policies on a demonstrably laughable model.

Democrat Mendacity Update – If you aren’t following @BennyJohnson on Twitter, you aren’t doing Twitter right.

Sick, indeed. Also despicable, demented, depraved and deleterious. Your Democrat Party in action, folks.

That is all.
