Defense Production Act: Watch the Democrat/Media Narrative Turn on a Dime

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

Watch as the talking points magically change. – The biggest news on Friday was that President Donald Trump moved to invoke the Defense Production Act (DPA) as it applies to General Motors. Not that you would necessarily know that, since the Democrat toadies in the fake, corrupt news media did their best to downplay this big news until they can obtain their new narrative talking points from the DNC on this particular issue. Because a new narrative is coming – bet on it.

Here is the text of the President’s order:

The White House
Office of the Press Secretary
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 27, 2020

Statement from the President Regarding the Defense Production Act

Today, I signed a Presidential Memorandum directing the Secretary of Health and Human Services to use any and all authority available under the Defense Production Act to require General Motors to accept, perform, and prioritize Federal contracts for ventilators. Our negotiations with GM regarding its ability to supply ventilators have been productive, but our fight against the virus is too urgent to allow the give-and-take of the contracting process to continue to run its normal course. GM was wasting time. Today’s action will help ensure the quick production of ventilators that will save American lives.

[End]

The President’s move comes after he had been hounded for a solid week by Democrat politicians and corrupt reporters in the White House press pool about why he activated the DPA about 10 days ago but before Friday had chosen not to target any company with it. Mr. Trump consistently responded that he had not needed to enforce the DPA because so many companies – like GM – were actually doing what the country needed them to do on a voluntary basis.

GM had come forward in mid-March and promised the Trump Administration that, because it had manufactured ventilators in previous years, it could quickly and easily convert at least one of its plants to do that again, and whip out about 40,000 new ventilators in short order for a reasonable price. But, when GM came back to the Administration this week and said that it now only wanted to make about 6,000 of these key pieces of health equipment, would take much more time than promised to do it, and wanted a lot more money per piece, the President decided not to tolerate this kind of double-dealing.

As is his habit, the President announced this major policy move on Twitter:

The “Mary B.” to whom Mr. Trump refers is GM CEO Mary Barra, a leftist clown who has basically run that once-great company into the ground over the past half-decade. As such, she is much-beloved by Democrat politicians  and corrupt journalists because, hey, from their perspective, being an inept CEO is great so long as your politics are right. Or should I say, left.

So, the Democrat/media propaganda complex that has spent the past week hammering the President to invoke the DPA against some company, any company, now has a new narrative conundrum. Do they continue to prod Mr. Trump in to more and more usage of the DPA, or do they now turn on a dime and pound on him for invoking it against one of their cult heroes and start calling him a dictatorial monster for doing so?

You can see where this is going to go, right?

Expect to see the new “Trump is a dictator!” narrative rolled out by leftwing talking heads and their corrupt media toadies on this week’s Sunday morning talk shows. It’s inevitable. This is what these people do.

That is all.

The WHO: A Bloated, Corrupt, Unaccountable, Thug-Hugging Bureaucracy

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

[Note: Given the many recent controversies regarding the World Health Organization and its head, Dr. (of Philosophy, believe it or not) Teros Ghebreyesus, this contribution from a friend in the medical field who prefers to remain anonymous is very timely, and extremely revelatory. Hope you enjoy it.]

WHO’s on first?

Costello: All I’m trying to find out is the fellow’s name on first base.
Abbott: Who.
Costello: The guy that gets the money.
Abbott: That’s it.
Costello: Who gets the money on first base?
Abbott: He does, every dollar!

World Health Organization. Who would think there could be anything but honor and irrefutable truth coming from an organization with such a noble-sounding organization?

If you’ve been watching most news reports during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s been quoted and referenced as an unassailable body with nothing but the best experts and best intentions.
The more you know…

The World Health Organization was set up as a coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations. One can argue about the continued value and credibility of the UN, and many of those arguments would seem to apply to its offshoot, WHO.

On the one hand, having an organization that coordinates advances in medicine and technology from one country for the rest of the globe, or comes together to help “achieve better health for everyone, everywhere” seems like a great idea. From WHO’s website itself, “We help mothers and children survive and thrive so they can look forward to a healthy old age. We ensure the safety of the air people breathe, the food they eat, the water they drink – and the medicines and vaccines they need.”

Who could argue with such a noble charter? The answer is that not only could we, but we should.

WHO’s annual budget is somewhere around 4 billion dollars. The United States is the largest contributor to this organization, to the tune of more than half a billion per year, between “assessments” and “voluntary contributions.”

As I started to dig in on why giving WHO any credit whatsoever and seemingly holding them above skepticism during this disastrous global crisis didn’t feel right to me, I started with WHO’s very own website. I was trying to find what the original constitution for WHO was when it was first chartered in 1948 and compare it to the constitution for WHO today. It wasn’t easy to find. The version available on the WHO website calls out that this version is inclusive of all amendments made since 1948, but there’s not really a way to see what has changed, like a redline version. I did find this evaluation of the preamble to the constitution.

If you read the WHO website carefully, you will see phrases and statements that are almost exact versions of phrases and statements you have heard for years from US politicians and bureaucrats. If you look to Annex VII of the WHO constitution, you will see that Experts and officers serving on behalf of the WHO shall have privileges and immunities granted to them by all member states: immunity from personal arrest or seizure of personal baggage, b) immunity of legal process of every kind, even if they are no longer serving on committees of or employed by the organization, c) they are not bound by any local restrictions regarding currency or baggage, d) they have inviolability for all papers and documents – their documents cannot be seized or destroyed, nor can they be reviewed. They are granted complete secrecy, e) they have the right to use codes and to receive papers or correspondence by courier or in sealed bags.

Wow! An officer or member of a WHO committee could sure do a lot of unsavory business under the guise of their WHO status, couldn’t they? And, if what they are doing is to advance the causes of public health across borders for all citizens, then why in the world would they need to be so carefully protected by whatever it might be they are carrying on their person?

Maybe that’s all standard bureaucratic gobbledygook, you might say. Nothing to see here, don’t be an alarmist.

What if I told you that the current Director General of the WHO, Teros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, is the first person to hold that office who is not actually a medical doctor?

Dr. Tedros (he has a PhD in Philosophy) is a well-known “expert” in the field of immunology and infectious disease, and the first African to hold the post. Quoted directly from the WHO website: “Immediately after taking office on 1 July 2017, Dr Tedros outlined five key priorities for the Organization: universal health coverage; health emergencies; women’s, children’s and adolescents’ health; health impacts of climate and environmental change; and a transformed WHO.” Also, “All roads lead to universal health coverage for Dr Tedros.” Hmmm…..

The Daily Caller has had a series of editorials on Dr Tedros and WHO in recent days. Dr Tedros has, at best, some pretty ominous connections to China in light of China’s stonewalling and lying about the source of the virus and its spread, which if they’d cooperated earlier would have likely mitigated this spread and its devastating impact on the world markets. China backed Tedros in the election which granted him a five year term as Director General, which began in 2017.

As Ethiopia’s Minister of Health, it is alleged that Dr. Tedros participated in the coverup of at least three cholera epidemics. He has close ties to other human rights violators, such as Robert Mugabe (also an ally of China) and has consistently parroted China’s talking points during the COVID-19 outbreak, even when they have been proven demonstrably false.

OK, so this Tedros seems like he might be a bit unsavory. Maybe he’s an outlier. Who preceded him?

Why, that would be Dr. Margaret Chan. Dr Chan, prior to her election to Director General of WHO, served as Director of Health in Hong Kong. In that role, she achieved notoriety during the 1997 avian influenza (bird flu) outbreak and the 2003 SARA outbreaks.

During the bird flu outbreak, she thought it would reassure people to say things like “I eat chicken every day, don’t panic.” During SARS, the structure of the Hong Kong health care system under her direction was widely criticized for not sharing data between hospitals and public health officials. So why not then get yourself elected not once, not twice as Director General of WHO?

During her term as Director General, she distinguished herself by claiming that North Korea’s health system was great and that there were no signs of obesity in the country, unlike other parts of Asia where this was becoming a growing concern. (Perhaps because, oh I don’t know, maybe the people there were being starved to death by a despotic dictator?) She was also accused of ignoring a polio comeback in Syria in deference to its delightful President Bashar al-Assad, and under her direction, WHO also took heat for its slow response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

Would you be interested to know that Chan is now a member of the Task Force on Fiscal Policy for Health, a group convened by none other than Michael Bloomberg and Lawrence Summers (remember him?)? Mr. Summers was Bill Clinton’s Treasury Secretary and former Director of the National Economic Council under President Obama. In between then, he was president of Harvard University, where he basically said that the reason why women weren’t equally represented in the science and engineering workforce was because they just weren’t as good at advanced math as men.

In its lifespan, the World Health Organization, despite the US being its single largest contributor, has never once elected an American as its Director General. Despite the excellent work the organization has done with vaccine research and other, targeted projects it has taken on in Africa, it’s hard to point to a single game-changing tactic that has impacted global health for the better.

WHO is an unaccountable, bloated, corrupt bureaucracy that has protected the most egregious human rights violators while professing moral superiority over every other individual country’s public health efforts, particularly the United States. It’s time we stopped supporting them, stopped deferring to them, and stopped listening to them.

 

That is all.

Pelosi, Sisolak Take TDS Depravity Beyond The Pale

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

Some mid-day notes everyone should be aware of:

America’s universities in action. – Harvard University has the largest university endowment on the face of the earth, currently estimated at over $40 billion. Yesterday, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon, Harvard laid off its dining hall workers in an effort to “cut costs”:

A Harvard spokesman said he was unable to provide the Free Beacon with the number of subcontract employees in dining services. In 2018, the New York Times reported that the university dining halls employed 275 subcontractors.

Based on the local living wage standard, it would cost Harvard $710,000 to provide four weeks of full-time paid leave for all of its subcontracted dining employees. This represents 0.001 percent of Harvard’s endowment.

Other universities that have transitioned to online classes have handled the situation with contract employees differently. The University of Chicago said last week it would continue paying its subcontract workers through the end of the academic year. The University of Chicago has an endowment of $8.5 billion, around one-fifth the size of Harvard’s.

Disgusting.

Speaking of disgusting people… – San Fran Nan is holding up the passage of the senate stimulus bill again. As reported by the Daily Caller, Pelosi is now using arcane House procedures as a tactic for delaying any action by her chamber for at least one more day:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi delayed the passage of the Senate’s coronavirus relief package on Wednesday, as the House was in session for nearly three minutes and then adjourned until Thursday.

“House Democrats will now review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action,” Pelosi said about the nearly $2 trillion emergency relief deal which will be voted on Wednesday afternoon in the Senate after a long night of negotiations. Meaning, the House will not be able to vote on the package for another day.

This is yet another clear effort by Pelosi to cause another day of negative stock market reaction. She will do literally anything, including throwing people out of jobs and causing more human misery, in her neverending zeal to harm President Trump. The woman is a sub-human ghoul, a clear domestic enemy.

Speaking of Democrat ghouls… – The Democrat Governor of Nevada, Steve Sisolak, last night issued an executive order denying coronavirus patients access to hydroxychloroquine, the safe, well-known medication that has been proven in multiple peer-reviewed studies as an effective treatment for the China Flu. As reported by Sifi.com:

Despite the world including India pinning the hope on anti-malaria drugs to treat serious COVID-19 patients, Nevadas governor has ordered to ban use of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine to treat new coronavirus patients.

The governor’s executive order came after US President Donald Trump termed the drugs as a potential treatment for treating the illness, reports NYPost.

A man in US state of [Arizona] died and his wife was in critical condition after taking “an additive used to clean fish tanks called chloroquine phosphate, similar to the drug used to treat malaria”.

[End]

Thus, we have a Democrat Governor, in a zeal to do political harm to the U.S. President, banning a safe and effective treatment to patients in danger of dying because a couple of idiots decided to ingest fish tank cleaner. It’s akin to banning the use of Clorox to bleach white shirts because a couple of kids found a bottle of it under the kitchen sink and had to have their stomachs pumped.

This is a special kind of Trump Derangement Syndrome depravity, folks. It is utterly beyond the pale.

That is all, for now.

Boom: Trump Sets Target Date For Re-Opening America

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

Early Tuesday morning, President Trump continued to signal that it is his intention to re-open the U.S. economy and get Americans back to work sooner rather than later. Repeating yesterday’s theme that the government can’t afford to implement a draconian “cure” that is worse than the China Virus itself, the President issued the following tweet:

A few hours later, President Trump had this to say on “Outnumbered” on Fox News:

Transcript:

Trump: The Senate and the House, we seem to be getting a long as much as you can get along. We seem to be getting a long now on a bill. I think that maybe had even less than an impact than the fact that we’re opening up this incredible country. Because we have to do that.

I’d love to have it all open by Easter [April 12]. I would love to have it open by Easter, I will tell you that right now. I would love that. It’s such an important day for other reasons, but I’ll make it an important day for this, too. I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.

[End]

For an investment community hungering to see a bottom reached in the stock market indexes, this is a crucial moment in time. There is no way the markets can find their bottom when they have no certainty – or even any real idea – about when business might resume and start getting the economy fully back on-line.

Markets were already soaring today on the prospect of the Democrats caving in and allowing the Senate stimulus measure to move through the process. The President’s move to set a firm target date for beginning to get the economy moving again will only serve to support that positive sentiment among investors longing for some good news.

As usual, President Trump’s sense of timing yesterday and today was impeccable. Be glad he’s your President.

That is all.

Another Monday, Two More Democrat/Media Hoaxes

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

We now have two new Democrat/media hoaxes underway. – As the President’s public approval ratings continue to flourish during this China Virus crisis, Democrats and their toadies in the corrupt news media have flitted about in a desperate search to find some narrative – any narrative at all would do – to knock them down.

Yesterday, they tried releasing the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator from his hiding place, to give a “counter-briefing” on coronavirus matters. That strategy predictably crashed and burned as Quid Pro Joe couldn’t remember his dictated lines at the point at which the Teleprompter had a glitch:

Such are the hazards of having a presumptive nominee who is suffering from obvious advancing dementia. All told, Biden talked for about 8 minutes, safely at home with no reporters tossing vicious questions at him, and was so disastrous that ABC didn’t even mention it on its evening newscast. Contrast that to President Trump, who conducted a 90-minute update and handled hostile and idiotic questions from the depraved White House press corps for over an hour, and you see the Democrats’ problem here. The contrast is not just stark, but incredibly disturbing to anyone with a functional cerebral cortex.

So the Democrat/media complex of propaganda needed a new narrative with which to try to diminish the President’s performance. On Monday, they landed on one they completely made up out of whole cloth, and another tragic one that fell into their lap.

The “Where’s Anthony Fauci” narrative. – It has become apparent over the past 10 days or so that President Trump is increasingly uncomfortable with the draconian measures to control this virus being recommended to him by Dr. Anthony Fauci and the CDC. As the “remedy” to this latest in a long line of viruses brought to us by China increasingly appears to potentially be more deadly than the outbreak itself, Fauci’s time speaking during task force updates has decreased.

Things really seemed to get tense between the two last week when Fauci aggressively downplayed scientific, peer-reviewed studies and anecdotal evidence from China and South Korea that show that hydroxychloroquine can be very effective in actually curing the China Virus. Anyone who argues with the President immediately becomes a hero to the corrupt media; thus, Fauci’s absence from the podium created a mini-panic among the press corps.

After he failed to appear for the second consecutive day’s briefing on Monday, the news-fakers at the New York Times ran a piece that portrays Fauci, who has utterly failed to effectively deal with an array of viral outbreaks over his 40 year career, and whose CDC thinks nothing of losing upwards of 60,000 Americans to the common flu every year, as the second coming of Mother Teresa in an article laced with libelous false statements about the President. Because of course they did – it’s what these ghouls do for a living, after all.

Once the Times led the way, pretty much every other corrupt news outlet in America followed with parroting pieces of their own, containing all the anti-Trump talking points that went out in the evening memo from the DNC. All the hosts and leftist talking heads on CNN and MSNBC followed suit. This is how it all works.

UPDATE: For his own part, Dr. Fauci denied in a radio interview on Monday that there are any substantial differences between himself and President Trump related to dealing with this virus:

Key Quote: DR. FAUCI says media is trying to “pit” him against President Trump. “That is really unfortunate. I would wish that that would stop. … there are not differences. The president has listened to what I have said… The idea of pitting one against the other is just not helpful.”

What Dr. Fauci apparently fails to grasp is that our corrupt news media has no interest in being “helpful.” It’s only interest is in advancing the Democrat party line, and thus harming the bad Orange Man.

The “Chloroquine killed a guy!” narrative. – Early Monday evening, the corrupt news-fakers at The Hill broke a story that contained this absurdly deceptive headline:

Man dies after taking malaria medication in effort to prevent coronavirus

The story, of course, is supposedly about hydroxychloroquine, the malaria medication that President Trump has touted as a potential cure for the China Virus on several occasions in recent days. The problem with the headline is that this man – and his wife, who was also hospitalized – did NOT take the prescription medication being used to fight this virus, as the story itself even admits:

“A man has died and his wife is under critical care after the couple, both in their 60s, ingested chloroquine phosphate, an additive commonly used at aquariums to clean fish tanks. Within thirty minutes of ingestion, the couple experienced immediate effects requiring admittance to a nearby Banner Health hospital,” the statement read.

These people ingested FISH TANK CLEANER that contains chloroquine and expected it to somehow protect them. Here’s some good advice, folks: DON’T INGEST FISH TANK CLEANER, BECAUSE IT MIGHT KILL YOU. This is something most 5 year-old children understand.

You seriously could never make this stuff up. Not in a million years.

But hey, nevermind pesky things like facts and truth – the entirety of the fake, corrupt news media ran with this story anyway as if this couple’s tragic stupdity somehow means we cannot possibly use this cheap, well-known, safe drug that has been prescribed millions of times by doctors all over the world to fight the China Virus.

It is fair to once again remind you that many of the corporations who own these corrupt media outlets are heavily-invested in and from China, whose communist government gave us this plague.

These people hate you and want you dead. That reality has never been more clear than it is today.

That is all.

Kung Flu Fighting: How Trump Can Deal With His China Virus Critics

Guest Piece by Gregg Updike

Unfortunately, since everything is now politicized to the nth degree, regardless of whatever action President Trump takes, it is always criticized as being wrong or incompetent etc. That being the case, he needs to make it “political”, as there is no doubt it will be made into a major campaign issue by the Democrats.

So, that being the reality of today’s political environment, he needs to treat all his virus actions as a major campaign issue – just like fighting a war would be. He just can’t work to solve this “pandemic” as a normal person or a business person would. Trump should continue to be frank with America and state with clarity that due to the hyper-partisan nature of the media narrative, entertainers, and the opposition party, he needs to treat this and the actions he has/is taking as a make or break moment for his presidency. That is just today’s reality and Trump does best when he faces and speaks to reality.

Since the president is already conducting daily press briefings on the China Virus and has the best and brightest minds in his administration and the CDC etc. already working on a solution, he should broaden scope of the input from all available sources. Why not invite the presumptive nominee Joe Biden, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, selected governors and mayors of the most impacted states and cities, and any other Main Stream Media medical “expert” they wish to present to the briefings? Draw these people out of their comfortable bunkers.

He should have an open televised round table discussion – like he did a couple years ago on the immigration issue – for the whole world to see. Show the country a true presidential bipartisan discussion between the leaders of both parties which, like two years ago, would exclude the pointless and nonsensical reporter’s questions. If Trump should wish the press to be involved, he could have the reporter’s questions submitted in writing with name and network attribution, but would deny them camera-hogging facetime.

This would force Trump’s detractors to either support him and his indefatigable efforts to solve this “pandemic”, or counter him with their “solutions”. We would then get an unfiltered view of how uncooperative and self-serving Trump’s opposition actually is. Make the opposition present and defend their positions in a meaningful way. If they decline to attend and display national solidarity and offer up their solutions, then Trump’s case of being serious and ”presidential” will have been made. The Democrats will be in an untenable position where they will have to present logical input and offer real cooperation, or they will be further exposed as the anti-American subversives they are.

Use these conferences to display charts and graphs on all aspects of the China Virus spread, infection rates etc. Broadcast openly the monetary relief aspects and negotiations of the various proposed stimulus programs – show which politicians in congress are opposing the various solutions and why they are opposing the solutions. There should also be someone from the FED and the private (industry) sector available to explain what they can and are doing to help in this crisis.

There is no reason to keep this information from the American people. If the networks don’t want to air – perhaps – four hour conferences every day, then insist it be broadcast UNEDITED on all CSPAN channels, PBS, NPR, and YouTube and other social media platforms.

No one, not Trump’s political enemies or his political allies, would be able to creditably accuse him of being a partisan dictator, a grandstander, or of hiding the truth in any way.

Since the herd-mentality of virtually everyone is on board with the idea of, and calling for, the commitment of spending up to one to two TRILLION DOLLARS – which is three to six thousand dollars per person in America – or more to solve this CHINA caused “crisis”, then let everyone see just who is advocating for these budget-busting expenditures. Expose those who are larding up the “stimulus” with their own pet projects and causes – most of which are NOT related to this China virus “crisis”.

Sunshine is a great disinfectant; let us all see where everyone stands on dealing with basically an enhanced version of influenza which, as of this writing, seemingly is curable by common, inexpensive, safe, and soon to be readily available drugs.

Prior to this virus causing social gathering shutdowns, which included the suspension of Trump’s huge and successful rallies, his campaign staff were gathering data on who was attending his rallies while they were happening. Since the rallies are suspended, he needs his campaign staff to monitor every large and small article, blog and post, and, most importantly, the resulting comments from those postings, on social media, and aggregate sites like Whatfinger. It is a treasure trove of heartfelt and logical public opinion and thought. Obviously the incoherent noise, the trolls, and stupid comments need to be purged and dismissed. Perhaps a fair algorithm could be developed to separate the wheat from the Schiff?

Forty plus years ago, I remember hearing President Carter openly soliciting written suggestions to be sent to the White House to help him deal with the unemployment, high interest rates, oil/energy and the Iran Hostage crises. To me, this was a tantamount admission that he, and his administration, was either unable or incompetent in its ability to deal with any difficult issue.

President Trump doesn’t have to ask for suggestions; they are freely offered by many very practical, intelligent, and patriotic Americans who want what is best for the country and ask for no compensation. It would be foolish not to search for and take the good advice freely offered – especially if it is from people who are not paid politicos with a hidden agenda.

Pelosi, Biden Plumb New Depths of Political Depravity

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

They literally corrupt everything they touch. – Including stimulus bills in time of national emergency, as we found out last night. At the prodding of Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democrats banded together to filibuster the stimulus bill working its way through that chamber, a bill that had been exhaustively negotiated between congressional leader of both parties – including San Fran Nan – for three days. By late morning on Sunday, it appeared that a deal had been struck:

But just hours after that meeting concluded, San Fran Nan began making noises about how the Senate bill was “inadequate” and promising to move her own bill in the House. The hangup? Well, abortion, of course. Seems the Senate bill doesn’t provide a bailout for Planned Parenthood, and the party of abortion on demand cannot possibly allow their baby-killing machine to suffer like everyone else in our society. It’s their religion, after all. Well, one of their religions, along with Climate Change and Alinskyism.

From the PJMedia article linked above:

Even more ominous to Democrats was a Medicaid restriction that would hurt Planned Parenthood and other non-profits.

A Democratic aide said that the small business provision was drafted to exclude non-profits who receive Medicaid from being eligible for Small Business Administration assistance offered under the bill. That, according to the aide, would impact Planned Parenthood but also community health centers, rape crisis centers and disability service providers.

Planned Parenthood is not a “small business” and non-profits, as their name implies, aren’t “businesses” either. Tens of millions of dollars — or more — could be denied to real small businesses who need that cash as well.

[End]

Thus, the Democrats are willing to tank the stock market even further and throw thousands more people out of jobs so that their baby-killing “non-profit” (except from the sale of baby body parts) factories can keep killing. Does it get any more ghoulish than that? Hard to imagine how.

Meanwhile, Quid Pro Joe prepares to create even more confusion and division. – Many have been wondering where the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator has been over the past week, since he basically disappeared from view after wins in several state primaries on Tuesday.

The answer came in a piece by Politico on Friday: He’s planning to hold what he is calling “regular shadow briefings” to provide his supporters in the corrupt news media with alternative talking points to what the President’s Coronavirus Task Force is telling the public:

Joe Biden is planning a regular shadow briefing on coronavirus to start as early as Monday to show how he would handle the crisis and address what he calls the lies and failures of President Trump.

Biden gave a preview of what’s to come in a conference call with reporters Friday, where he listed a litany of false and misleading statements from Trump, who has been holding regular White House press conferences concerning coronavirus preparedness and response that have been broadcast live on all major networks.

“President Trump stop saying false things, will ya?” Biden said. “People are worried they are really frightened, when these things don’t come through. He just exacerbates their concern. Stop saying false things you think make you sound like a hero and start putting the full weight of the federal government behind finding fast, safe and effective treatments.”

Biden made his comments from his home in Wilmington, Delaware, where he has been holed up for more than a week in adherence with Centers for Disease Control guidelines that urge people to practice social distancing.

[End]

Why would he do this, you ask? Why, because the Task Force briefings have proved to be very effective in keeping the public informed, in the process providing the President with a platform to speak directly to the American people. As a result, the President’s public approval rating has skyrocketed, rising into the mid-50s in multiple polls last week.

This reality created a panic situation in the Democrat/media complex of propaganda late in the week. The media responded with a new narrative, accusing the President of lying, with op/eds in both the NY Times and Washington Post demanding that the networks actually stop covering the briefings. Now, despite Quid Pro Joe’s obvious advancing mental decline, they are urging him to get out there multiple times a week to provide a rebuttal to the President that all the networks will also air.

So, in a time of national crisis and a declared state of national emergency, we see the Democrats and their media toadies planning a process that is intentionally designed to decrease public confidence in government, increase confusion and produce outright panic.

Make no mistake about it: That is literally the outcome these demented and depraved people prefer. They are so mad with their pursuit of power that they would rather see millions of ordinary Americans suffer, lose their retirements, and see mass rioting in the streets than to see President Trump’s public approval ratings tick up by 5 percentage points because he’s doing a good job.

It used to be fair to merely say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for socialism. As of this morning, it is entirely fair to say that a vote for a Democrat is a vote for the destruction of our economy and our society.

Stop doing it, folks.

That is all.

Watch: Stanford Med School Spokesman Announces Peer-Reviewed China Virus Cure [Updated]

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

Why is this not bigger news? – Gregory Rigano, an advisor to the Stanford School of Medicine, told Tucker Carlson on Fox New last night that French scientists have released a peer-reviewed study indicating that a very cheap anti-Malaria drug called chloroquine produced a 100% cure to the Chinese coronavirus in a test involving 40 patients.

Watch this clip, followed by a transcript:

Carlson: Fortunately there is some good news to report on that front tonight. Early evidence suggests that chloroquine, a cheap anti-Malaria drug, may be effective in treating coronavirus. Gregory Rigano is an advisor to the Stanford School of Medicine, and he joins us tonight. Thanks so much for coming on. So, tell us what this is and why you think it’s promising.

Rigano: The President has the authority to authorize the use of hydroxy chloroquine against the coronavirus immediately. He has cut more red tape at the FDA than any President in history. For example, in 2017, a new drug was approved for Muscular Dystrophy for a clinical trial that enrolled less than 15 patients and was generally uncontrolled in an open setting.

Hydroxy chloroquine has been on the market for over 50 years with a quality safety profile. I’m here to report that, as of this morning, a well-controlled, peer-reviewed study carried out by the most imminent infectious disease specialist in the world, Didier Raoult, PhD, out of the South of France, in which he enrolled 40 patients in a well-controlled, peer-reviewed study that showed a 100% cure rate against coronavirus. 

The study was released this morning on my Twitter account, @RiganoESQ, as well as our most recent website, COVIDTrial.io. The study was recently accepted into the International Journal of anti-microbial agents.

Carlson: Obviously, I only know what you’re telling me. But I do know that it’s very unusual for a study of anything to produce results of 100%. That’s remarkable, isn’t it? Or am I missing something?

Rigano: That is remarkable. In fact, to be able to cure a virus was said to be mathematically impossible, and the first company that did it was a small biotech called Pharmacet that was acquired by Gilead Sciences. They cured Hepatitis C. What we’re here to announce is the second cure to a virus of all time.

Carlson: Well, that’s remarkable. Of course, it’s our job to be skeptical of all and any claims; however, I very much want to believe this and I think we very much need immediately to run it down. The administration needs to find out if this is true. If the, if it is, that’s the biggest news of this moment. So, I’m so grateful that you announced that on this show, and I hope we are hearing a lot about it very soon.

Rigano’s statement speaks for itself. As mentioned above, the study results can be found at this link.

Interestingly, as I was typing this up, Dr. Mark Seigel appeared on Fox Business with Stuart Varney and noted that other clinical trials taking place in South Korea and other Asian countries are producing similar results to Dr. Raoult’s work.

Folks, if this turns out to be a real, true cure, you can count on President Donald Trump to cut through all the FDA bureaucratic job-preservation bullshit and make certification for the use of this drug quickly available to the American medical community, and use federal resources to work to ensure it is available in the needed quantities. Be happy he’s your President, because any Democrat would fart around with it based on the advice coming from his experts for a year before it would come available.

Pray this is real – it could save literally millions of lives.

UPDATE: The UK Daily Express carried a report yesterday on the South Korea tests using chloroquine:

Published on March 13 this year, the study claims to examine guidelines issued by China and South Korea on the effectiveness of chloroquine as an antiviral remedy.

Chloroquine is a medicine used to prevent and treat malaria in those parts of the world where the mosquito-carried disease is a danger to life.

Mr Musk said he received the drug when he suffered from malaria.

He tweeted: “Yes, I received chloroquine via central line through my chest & both arms.

“Had near fatal case of falciparum. Would’ve died for sure if not for chloroquine.

“Doesn’t mean it works for C19, but maybe better than nothing.”

The drug has been in use around the globe since 1945.

A summary of the study reads: “Recent guidelines from South Korea and China report that chloroquine is an effective antiviral therapeutic treatment against Coronavirus Disease 2019.

Use of chloroquine (tablets) is showing favourable outcomes in humans infected with Coronavirus including faster time to recovery and shorter hospital stay.

Maybe worth considering chloroquine for C19

Elon Musk on Twitter

“US CDC research shows that chloroquine also has strong potential as a prophylactic (preventative) measure against coronavirus in the lab, while we wait for a vaccine to be developed.”

From Kung Flu to Bat Virus, The Corrupt Media Beclowns Itself One More Time

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

Just when you thought the corrupt, fake news media could not possibly become any more corrupt or fake than it already was, they go and prove you wrong. – As President Donald Trump and his administration mobilize the entirety of the federal government in the fight to contain the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus, he and his task force members are doing everything they can to keep the public informed. Simply put: Our country is now on a war footing, regardless of anyone’s opinion about whether or not such measures are actually justified.

The President and his team hold press conferences at least once every day, often twice or even more, as a part of this effort. During a time like this, any patriotic American who cares about this country and our fellow citizens would hope that people who hold themselves out to be “news reporters” would focus their questioning on actual news-related stuff, and do their best to leave their leftist political correctness and active grudges against the President secured away in the enormous fanny packs in which all their rage-filled grudges are stored.

Well, you can hope that, but you would be disappointed if you did. Take the raging nitwit below as a prime example of a corrupt reporter using yesterday’s televised press conference as an excuse to grandstand her own grudge against President Trump and his ongoing, 100% accurate use of the term “Chinese virus” to describe what he is fighting:

Reporter (no idea who she might be): “Ok, why do you keep calling this the Chinese virus? There are reports of dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans in this country. Your own aide, Secretary Azar, says he does not use this term because ethnicity does not cause the virus. Why do you keep using this? A lot of people say it’s racist?”

President Trump: “It’s not racist. It’s not racist at all, no. Not at all. It comes from China. That’s why. It comes from China. I want to be accurate. I have great love for all of the people from our country. But, as you know, China tried to say at one point – maybe they’ve stopped now – that it was caused by American soldiers. That can’t happen. It’s not going to happen, not as long as I’m President. It comes from China.”

[End]

Now, about those “dozens of incidents of bias against Chinese Americans,” which this reporter wants people to believe were somehow caused by the President correctly identifying where this virus originated: Most likely almost all such reports – assuming they even exist anywhere outside of this reporter’s mind – are false. Possibly all of them made up by leftist activists pursuing their political agenda, an Alinsky tactic that Democrats and their media toadies use all the time.

Do idiots exist in our society who exercise bias against Chinese Americans? Sure. There are idiots in our society who exercise bias against all races, colors and religions in America. No society of 339 million people can ever be free from the acts of idiots.

This reporter is one of those idiots, exercising her rage-filled bias against a President trying to get accurate information to the American people. And she wasn’t even the worst example from yesterday’s press conference – check out this raging clown show:

Reporter (Again, no earthly idea who she is): “There’s reporting that the federal government has a plan that shows this coronavirus outbreak might last as long as 18 months – are you seeing those numbers?

President: “No, I’m not seeing that at all.”

Reporter: “And my second question is, there are some, at least one White House official who used the term ‘Kung flu’, referring to the fact that this virus started in China. Is that acceptable? Is it wrong? Are you worried that, that having this virus be, be talked about as a Chinese virus, that that might …

President: “I wonder who said that. Do you know who said that?”

Reporter: “That, I’m not sure the person’s name, but would you condemn the fact …”

President: “Say the term again.”

Reporter [clearly lying]: “Th, um, a person at the White House used the term ‘Kung flu'”…

President: “Kung flu.”

Reporter: “My question is, do you think that’s wrong – Kung flu – and do you think using that term Chinese virus, that puts Asian Americans at risk?”

President: “No, not at all. No, not at all. I think they probably would agree with it 100%. It comes from China.”

[End]

You seriously could never make this up, folks. In the middle of a national emergency, an emergency that is going to end up ultimately killing hundreds, if not thousands of Americans, all these tiny-brained “journalists” can focus on is political correctness. If these people had been alive on D-Day, they would have used their time to chastise FDR for someone in the White House using the term “kraut”, or maybe for using unfair stereotypes to demonize Herman Goehring.

It is a stunning display of not only inexcusable, pervasive bias in the American media, but also of what can only be called rank stupidity. These reporters are just plain stupid people who have no sense of priority.

But hey, in case anyone is sitting there thinking I’m picking on the women, fear not: The award for absolute dumbest, most brain-dead corrupt reporter take of the day goes to Richard Engel of NBC News:

*sigh*

The American media is garbage. Smelly, rancid, putrid garbage.

That is all.
