Surprise, surprise, surprise!

Well, who’d a thunk it?!

amostprep 11

After all of the gnashing of teeth…,

After all of the wringing of hands…,

And after all of the whining…,

It seems that The United States was the most prepared to deal with our current pandemic, although you would think our government was and is failing miserably on every level, according to the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news, media.

amostprep 10

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “US was more prepared for pandemic than any other country, a Johns Hopkins study found.”

amostprep 2

Johns Hopkins University is a private research university in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1876.  The university has led the way to revolutionize higher education in the U.S. by integrating teaching and research. Over the course of several decades, the university has led all U.S. universities in annual research and development expenditures. Johns Hopkins is organized into 10 divisions on campuses in Maryland and Washington, D.C., with international centers in Italy and China.

“The United States was ranked the best-prepared country in the world to handle a pandemic in late 2019 by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS) — an assessment seemingly at odds with claims by Democrats that the Trump administration left the country vulnerable to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.”

amostprep 1

“The Global Health Security Index was ‘developed with guidance from an international panel of experts from 13 countries, with research by the Economist Intelligence Unit,’ The Washington Post reported last year. ‘More than 100 researchers spent a year collecting and validating publicly available data.’”

Ok…, let’s deal with the facts, dumocrats!

Let’s listen to the researchers and scientists here, as you are so fond of saying.

Ahhh, the scientists…, the liberal equals of “high priests!”

Let’s listen to the “experts,” they cry!

This is just another example, the latest example, of your false narrative being totally discredited.

We’ve heard you declaring that President Trump had slashed the CDC budget.

We’ve heard you say that important support personnel in the CDC had been “trimmed away” by President Trump.

We’ve heard you say The President has silenced or muffled those on his coronavirus team or in his administration who disagree with him.

False, false, false and FALSE!!!

A thousand times FALSE!

It doesn’t seem to stop the fake news, however.

They just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

The dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media have absolutely no shame.

“President Trump’s campaign has argued in recent days that misinformation may be one of the leading causes of that lack of confidence.”

Actually, I believe the whole perception of a “lack of confidence” in the first place, is a misinformation campaign by the fake news.

Additionally, “Trump’s team has pointed to claims by presidential contender Joe Biden that ‘no one on the National Security Council staff was put in charge’ of pandemic preparedness, based on a report that in May 2018, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton eliminated the NSC’s Office of Global Health Security and Biodefense in a reorganization effort.”

“Rear Adm. R. Timothy Ziemer reportedly was ousted as senior director, and no replacement was named. But, FactCheck.org has determined that the matter amounted to a reorganization, and that ‘some team members [of the NSC pandemic office] were shifted to other groups, and others took over some of [the top official’s] duties.’”

“Separately, the Biden team has repeatedly argued that the president once referred to coronavirus as a ‘hoax.’ That claim has been refuted by numerous fact-checkers, including the Post’s, which found that Trump was clearly referring to Democrats’ efforts to blame him for the pandemic, not the virus itself.”

“Additionally, numerous Democrats, including Biden, have falsely claimed that the president cut the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) budget. The Associated Press has noted that those claims ‘distort’ the facts.”

“Instead, financing has [actually] increased.”

amostprep 9

“Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.”

“Nevertheless, misleading reports about the Trump campaign’s pandemic response efforts have continued to spread.”

Like I said, the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

It’s actually hard to keep up with all of their lies and misinformation.

That’s all a part of their strategy I imagine.

“A recent report by Reuters that the U.S. had recently terminated a CDC position in China was widely cited by Democrats and reporters as evidence of a lack of preparedness, and formed the basis for a reporter’s question at a recent White House coronavirus briefing.”

amostprep 3

“But, the article itself made clear that experts didn’t think the move had anything to do with the spread of coronavirus in the United States.”

And yet, the “reporter” just parrots the question, like the pathetic liberal “tool” she is.

So sad and so disingenuous.

amostprep 14

I’m not sure how President Trump is able to put up with their crap on a daily basis, to tell you the truth.

President Trump is an amazing man, and I thank God every day that he is willing and able to battle all of these anti-America forces in our own country and around the world.

Hey democrats and fake news media! Be careful what you wish for…, you just might get it!

Yes, democrats, and the fake news media…, “Be careful what you wish for…, because you just might get it!

As they continue searching for anything to criticize The President about, the democrats and the fake news, liberal propaganda, media has latched onto The Defense Production Act…, demanding President Trump invoke this law and use it towards alleviating the shortages for medical equipment that we’re facing.

adefact 12

adefact 11

In fact, in his first “coronavirus update,” Sleepy, Creepy Joe Biden hung his hat on this recommendation and usage of the law as well.

adefact 5

adefact 3

So…, what exactly is the Defense Production Act?

According to Eric Tucker, for The Associated Press, “The Defense Production Act of 1950 was signed by President Harry S. Truman amid concerns about supplies and equipment during that war. It’s been invoked multiple times since then to help the federal government for a range of emergencies including war, hurricanes and terrorism prevention.”

“The act gives the federal government broad authority to direct private companies to meet the needs of the national defense.  Over the decades, the law’s powers have been understood to encompass not only times of war but also domestic emergency preparedness and recovery from terrorist attacks and natural disasters.”

“The act authorizes the president to require companies to prioritize government contracts and orders seen as necessary for the national defense, with the goal of ensuring that the private sector is producing enough goods needed to meet a war effort or other national emergency.”

According to Peter Sullivan, of The Hill, “President Trump on Sunday rejected calls from governors, hospitals and others to direct companies to ramp up production of critical supplies for the coronavirus fight through the use of the Defense Production Act.”

adefact 2

“[President] Trump argued that he has used the Defense Production Act (DPA) as leverage in negotiations with companies to get them to produce supplies and equipment for the coronavirus fight.”

‘“We’re a country not based on nationalizing our business. Call a person over in Venezuela,’ Trump told reporters. ‘How did nationalization of their businesses work out? Not too well.’”

“[President] Trump has been under increasing pressure to use his powers under the DPA to direct private companies to increase production of supplies such as masks and other protective gear for health care workers as well as ventilators, which allow seriously ill people to breathe.”

“New York Governor Andrew Cuomo (D) warned that prices for crucial masks had spiked from $0.85 to $7 apiece and urged the federal government to step in.  ‘The Federal Government should immediately use the Defense Production Act to order companies to make gowns, masks and gloves,’ Cuomo tweeted Sunday.”

Well, Mr. President, perhaps you should reconsider your stance, and start putting Defense Production Act to good use!

For instance:

MrEricksonRules would immediately order The Washington Post and The New York Times to suspend the printing of their papers switch over to producing toilet paper to meet the national shortages there.

adefact 7

They could still print their articles on the TP if they want to.  In fact, more people would probably read their articles as well under this scenario!

It’s a win-win!

Next, I would order CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, CBS and NPR to use their employees to support the temporary hospitals in New York, by helping with cleaning the bathrooms, taking out the garbage, and generally keeping the facilities clean!

There…, now wouldn’t that be fun!

This would also be a win-win scenario…, as they would be helping out the cause by supporting coronavirus treatment facilities, and at the same time they would not have the time to continue to ramp-up the hysteria about the coronavirus and continue their unceasing attacks on President Trump.

Like I said…, it’s a win-win!

So, yes, democrats, and the fake news media…, “Be careful what you wish for…, because you just might get it!

GOP slammed by Nobel-Winning Economist, Paul Krugman.

How this guy has any credibility left, or a job for that matter, is beyond me.

adeficit 7

I used to think “Nobel-Winning” actually meant something until Barack Obama and this guy won one.

adeficit 5

“This guy” being “Economist” Paul Krugman…, and I use the term “economist” VERY loosely.

Krugman hasn’t been remotely close to being right about anything he’s said regarding the economy in like forever.

adeficit 3

That’s probably because he’s more interested in spreading desired liberal propaganda economic narratives rather than actually analyzing our real economy.

Lee Moran, of the ever disgusting HuffPost, reports that, “Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman blasted the GOP [The Grand Old Party, or Republicans] for ‘the most cynical policy reversal of modern times,’ and warned their bold duplicity may help President Donald Trump secure a second term in office.”

Oh…, I can’t wait…, this should be interesting!

adeficit 6

“Fake Newsers” are always more than happy to regurgitate other fake news propaganda…, no matter how hypocritical or idiotic it is.

“In his latest column for The New York Times [Guaranteeing the fakeness of it!], Krugman called out the ‘broader pattern of breathtaking fiscal hypocrisy, in which the G.O.P. went from insisting that federal debt posed an existential threat under Obama to complete indifference to budget deficits under Trump.’”

‘“This 180-degree turn is, as far as I can tell, the most cynical policy reversal of modern times,’ he argued.”

How dare anyone in politics change their mind, right Paul?!

“Krugman predicted ‘this cynicism may win Trump the election’ because ‘what’s driving the U.S. economy now is the very deficit spending Republicans pretended to be horrified by during the Obama years.’”

Ok…, wait…, this is too good!

What Mr. Krugman is saying is President Trump may win re-election because he and the republicans have changed their position on the federal deficit, and they have now chosen to ignore it like the democrats have been doing!

That’s beautiful.

adeficit 2

It’s not fair!  You can’t be irresponsible about the federal deficit…, that’s our job!

In all fairness to President Trump, he didn’t run particularly on reducing the federal deficit, and he never pretended to be overly concerned about it.

And those fiscally conservative republicans are still out there…, they’re just not putting up much of a fight right now.

Being responsible with the nation’s money is just not a winning argument these days.

So, like they say…, “when in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.”

Being responsible sucks!

Chaaaaarge it!

The Washington Post’s hypocrisy knows no bounds!

Allow me to drag this hypocrisy out into the sunlight to die!

acontempt 3

The Washington post says, “The right-wing media’s contempt for the truth has never been more dangerous.”

This is according to a recent article in the said Washington Post.

acontempt 1

Excuse me, but who’s contempt of what?

The problem here is, The Washington Post and the rest of the corrupt fake news media have redefined “the truth” as their liberal propaganda narrative.

acnncon 10

What they are really saying is, “The right-wing media’s contempt for our liberal propaganda has never been more dangerous to us retaining any semblance of influence!”

The motto for the Washington Post is, “Democracy Dies in Darkness.”

acontempt 2

Well, the Washington Post sure is throwing a whole lot of shade at our democracy right now!

It seems like The Washington Post would prefer if our current democracy did die, and was replaced by some sort of democratic socialism that would have the government elitists living in the lap of luxury, privilege and power, while the rest of us would be forced to fight for the scraps.

acontempt 9

I’m not sure who’s controlling The Washington Post exactly, but I do know they have an anti-American, an anti-conservative, an anti-freedom, an anti-capitalism and an anti-Christian agenda…, and they’re not fooling anybody anymore.

Thank you for all of your misinformation and disingenuous hyping of the whole coronavirus situation.

acnncon 1

The world and the United States has faced many infectious diseases before, and we face the common flu every year, but we have never seen this level of outright hysteria demonstrated before.

“The annual flu” routinely kills hundreds and hundreds of times the people that the coronavirus has, and will, kill, and we already have a vaccine for it as well!

Where has the hysteria been about that?

Where have the quarantines been about that?

Where have the school and business closings been about that?

Why are tens of thousands of deaths acceptable every year from one virus, but these thousands of deaths are not from another virus?

acnncon 3

Thanks to the fake news’ eagerness to hang any bit of bad news on President Trump, they have now established a precedent that is going to make everyone’s life a living hell every year or every other year at least.

acnncon 2

acnncon 4

The threat of getting sick is now going to be dictating how we live our lives.

How are all of the politicians going to have to respond in the future to any disease floating around out there?

Are we going to have case counts and death counts for the flu every year now as well?

I hope not…, because those numbers would really be scary…, not like these wimpy coronavirus numbers.

Is it ever going to be “safe” again to gather together in large numbers?

Has the era of going to the movies, concerts, and sporting events come to an end?

Are we doomed to watch everything from remotely from the safety of our homes now?

Think about it.

I’m afraid the world has let the fake news media talk it into believing that our governments can, and should, protect us from anything and everything, including diseases and acts of nature.

Our lives are NEVER going to be the same now.

Yes…, thanks CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, NPR and all the rest of the liberal propaganda media.

acnncon 6

acnncon 7

And let’s not forget about the democrats.

acnncon 9

Your desire to control us has lowered our quality of life…, forever, which I know you’re not really concerned about, but your actions have ended up lowering the quality of your own lives as well.  This, I know, had not been considered before you (the fake news media and the democrats) decided to go down this path.

acnncon 5

Thanks fake news media.

Thanks democrats.

I hope you’re will to accept the credit for this, which you have definitely earned.

MSNBC’s Brian Williams says, “4 out of 3 people struggle with math.”

According to Dom Calicchio and Brian Flood of Fox News, “Brian Williams, [and] NY Times editor ridiculed for getting Bloomberg math breakdown very, very wrong.”

“If someone had simply stopped and double-checked some math, they might have saved MSNBC’s Brian Williams and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay some embarrassment and an apology Thursday night.”

amath 8

“Instead, both Williams and Gay marveled on air in reaction to a Twitter user’s post about Mike Bloomberg’s campaign spending.”

“Trouble is, the post had gotten the math all wrong – yet neither Williams nor Gay seemed to notice.”

“The Super Tuesday evening post, now deleted, said: ‘Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. The U.S. population is 327 million. He could have given each American $1 million and still have money left over, I feel like a $1 million check would be life-changing for people. Yet he wasted it all on ads and STILL LOST.’”

amath 9

‘“It’s an incredible way of putting it,’ Williams gushed.”

‘“It’s an incredible way of putting it. It’s true,’ Gay agreed.”

It is an incredible way of putting it…, and an incredibly stupid way of putting it!

amath 1

“In reality, however, had Bloomberg divvied his advertising dollars among all Americans, the per-capita cash-out would have been more like $1.53 per person – not even enough to take a ride on New York City’s subway.”

“MSNBC’s Brian Williams and New York Times editorial board member Mara Gay were roasted on social media for botching simple math.”

amath 3

‘“Turns out Mara and I got the same grades at math. I’m speaking of the tweet we both misinterpreted. He could give each American $1. Again, I didn’t have it in high school. I don’t have it tonight. I stand corrected. Sorry about that. The tweet is wrong,’ Williams told viewers later in the show. ‘Garbage in, garbage out.’”

There you go, Brian!

That’s it EXACTLY!

That’s what I’ve been saying all along with regards to all of you liberal propaganda, fake newsers!

“GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT.”

And there’s been A LOT, A LOT, A LOT of “GARBAGE OUT.”

In fact there’s been primarily “garbage out.”

This actually has more to do with COMMON SENSE than it does with Math, Brian.

amath 2

When you say, “I didn’t have IT in high school. I don’t have IT tonight…,” I believe you, and I believe the “it” refers to common sense as well as math.

It’s amazing how all of these elitist pundits and show hosts can sit there and belittle Trump supports as uneducated rubes, but then turn around and spew this kind of stupidness out of their mouths and then completely write it off.

“One Twitter user who took notice of the bad math was writer Michael Salfino of New Jersey.”

‘“What is wrong with these people?’ Salfino wrote. ‘This would be right if there were 327 people in the US. And this reflects horribly on the NY Times too. Can someone stop and think for two seconds?’”

They do stop and think, Mr. Salfino…, except they don’t think about accuracy or the truth.  They spend a lot of time thinking about how they can promote the anti-Trump narrative, the establishment democrat narrative, or in this case, the divisive, “smarty pants” elitist narrative.

‘“The 11th Hour’ [William’s show on MSNBC] eventually pointed out the mistake on social media.”

Oh, how nice of them!

‘“Tonight on the air we quoted a tweet that relied on bad math. We corrected the error after the next commercial break and have removed it from later editions of tonight’s program. We apologize for the error,’ the verified Twittter account for Williams’ show wrote after the gaffe.”

No…, actually you [the show] swallowed the tweet with the bogus math hook, line and sinker, and then ran with it without a second thought!

“National Review editor Charles C. W. Cooke wrote that the math is obviously ‘spectacularly off’ but so it’s also very telling.”

‘“This, right here, is why so many left-leaning Americans think that “the billionaires” can pay for everything. It’s why Elizabeth Warren was enthusiastically boosted by the media despite her ridiculous pretense that she could pay for a series of gargantuan initiatives without raising taxes on anyone but the extremely rich,’ Cooke wrote. ‘It’s why Democrat after Democrat promises not to raise “middle class taxes” while promising programs that require the raising of middle class taxes. How did this bad tweet make it onto TV to be endorsed? Why did Mara Gay agree with it? Why didn’t Brian Williams notice? Because the people involved in this clip thought it was true. This is how they see the world.”

Yes…, like I said, they [the fake news media] do stop and think…, except they don’t think about accuracy or the truth.  They spend a lot of time thinking about how they can promote the anti-Trump narrative, the establishment democrat narrative, or in this case, the divisive, “smarty pants” elitist narrative.

I see CNN has finally posted some news about the stock market! 

Yes folks, and if you see CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABC, The Huffington Post (HuffPost), The New York Times or The Washington Post reporting news about Wall Street, or the economy in general, it’s bad news.

acnn3 9

In this case, CNN Business’ David Goldman reports, “US stocks plummet on Coronavirus fears: March 9, 2020.  Dow falls 2,100 points.”

Well, that is definitely news Mr. Goldman…, but it was news too when the stock market hit record highs like over 30 times this last year.

It’s funny how I didn’t see any mention of those economic events.

I wonder why?

acnn3 3

CNN must be doubly excited about this news…, as their hyping of the coronavirus seems to be working and that in turn is causing negative economic news.

Please check out my previous blogs regarding the coronavirus:

You scared of the Coronavirus?  From March 3, 2020

https://mrericksonrules.com/2020/03/03/you-scared-of-the-coronavirus/

and,

Death toll hits 14,000!  But I’m not talking about the coronavirus. From March 9, 2020.

https://mrericksonrules.com/2020/03/09/death-toll-hits-14000-but-im-not-talking-about-the-coronavirus/

Another article out there by David Goldman today reports, “It’s a bad day to be an energy company.”

Wow…, two articles in one day!  Mr. Goldman must be extra charged up by all of this bad news!

acnn3 8

Goldman reports, ‘“The rapidly falling price of oil [due to an oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia] is likely to put more pressure on energy companies in the United States, which will hurt the banks with the most credit exposure to the oil industry,’ according to CFRA Research analyst Pauline Bell.”

Yes, Mr. Goldman…, again, this is definitely news.

But it was also news when President Trump pushed to open-up more areas for oil exploration and when he got all of the pipelines approved.  Not to mention when we gained our independence from Middle Eastern oil, and in fact, became the world’s number one producer of oil again!

Not to mention how low the price of gas has been for over three years now.

This “good stuff” was also news that I didn’t catch you or CNN reporting about, or even bothering to mention in most cases.

Again, I wonder why?

acnn3 7

Actually, I don’t “wonder why” at all.

I know very well why all of the liberal propaganda, fake news, shamelessly tries to manipulate the news.

It’s all in an effort to support their anti-Trump narrative.

acnn3 1

acnn3 5

It’s just amazing to me how many people are still falling for this fake news.

acnn3 4

acnn3 2

Just watch the fanfare (I’m being sarcastic) about the market bouncing back on the fake news today.

There won’t be any.

Death toll hits 14,000!  But I’m not talking about the coronavirus.

The 14,000 deaths, at least, that I’m talking about is from the annual flu bug in the United States.

So where’s all of the hysteria about that?

14,000 deaths!

And 14,000 deaths is on the low end of the national estimate.  That number could be as high as 36,000!

The latest number we have for coronavirus related deaths is…, 22.

Yeah…, that’s right…, just 2-2.

acorona2 1

Additionally, according to the “Advisory Board” website, “The 2019-2020 flu season has seen the most pediatric deaths in a decade.”

“This flu season has been especially bad for children, according to the CDC. The latest CDC report shows 92 pediatric deaths had been reported as of Feb. 8, the highest number by week since the 2009-2010 flu season, in which 262 pediatric deaths had occurred by this point in the season, according to CDC.”

“ScienceAlert” website reports that, “Parents are understandably concerned. But it’s important to keep in mind that comparatively few children have tested positive for the coronavirus, and deaths in children are very rare.”

“The number of reported COVID-19 cases in children remains low: of more than 44,000 confirmed cases from China, only 416 (less than 1 percent) were aged nine years or younger. No deaths were reported in this age group.”

“The majority of children and adolescents with COVID-19 in China had mild infections and recovered within one to two weeks.”

So the regular old annual flu virus is considerably more dangerous for children that the coronavirus.  In fact, it appears the coronavirus isn’t dangerous for children at all.

Have we heard the fake news media reporting this?

In fact, it appears that the coronavirus isn’t really dangerous at all, except to elderly people and people who are already experiencing some form of disease or illness.

Have we heard the fake news reporting this?

The “Advisory Board” website goes on to say “Between 26 million and 36 million people have been stricken with the flu as of Feb. 8, according to the latest CDC data.”

Again…, “Between 26 MILLION and 36 MILLION people have been stricken with the flu [in the U.S.] as of Feb. 8, according to the latest CDC data.”

And we have that many cases and we already have a vaccine for the flu!

And how many people have been diagnosed with the coronavirus?

Around 500.

That’s right…, 500.

26,000,000-36,000,000 versus 500.

Oh…, but the world is coming to an end because of the coronavirus!

acorona2 3

acorona2 5

The hysteria being created by the fake news media and the democrats is obviously politically motivated.

Just looking at the numbers, what else could explain their reporting regarding the suppression of the flu figures and the hype of the coronavirus numbers?

As usual, what we have here is the democrats taking advantage of a crisis…, albeit a manufactured crisis.

acorona2 4

acorona2 42

If the fake news media and the democrats were really concerned about our wellbeing, they would be putting the coronavirus in the proper perspective and being more outspoken about the dangers of the flu virus.

It’s as simple as that.

If you could catch the virus from watching TV or reading a paper, they wouldn’t be hyping it.  I guarantee you that!

You scared of the Coronavirus? 

Were you as scared of the flu, we’re all so familiar with, a month or two ago?

Based on the numbers, if you’re going to be scared, you should be just as scared of the flu…, actually you should be much more scared of the flu!

According to Jamie Ducharme of TIME Magazine, even though we have vaccines for the flu, “In total, the CDC estimates that up to 42.9 million people got sick during the 2018-2019 flu season [November thru April, or about six months], 647,000 people were hospitalized and 61,200 died.”

And that’s only in the U.S.

Currently 2 people have died from the Coronavirus in the U.S.

Two.

The MedicineNet website reports that, “Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate.”

Wait…, what’s that again?

The MedicineNet website reports that, “Seasonal flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to a new estimate.”

The flu kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year!!!

Joshua Berlinger, Jessie Yeung, Adam Renton, Mike Hayes, Rachel Bowman and Meg Wagner of CNN say the, “Coronavirus death toll tops 3,000.”

That’s in the two months of January and February of 2020.

3,000.

The good old seasonal flu we’re used to “kills 291,000 to 646,000 people worldwide each year.”

Again…, that’s 291,000 to 646,000!

And you’re all worked up about the Coronavirus?

Now why would that be?

Hmmm, let me think.

Could it be because the fake news, liberal propaganda is blowing the Coronavirus all out of proportion?

I believe the answer to that question is “yes.”

I mean…, 291,000 to 646,000 people have been dying from the flu year after year after year after year, and no one seemed to be making a big deal about it.

Am I wrong?

And now 3,000 have died from the Coronavirus and the fake news media and the disingenuous democrat leadership are all losing their minds?

Why are these 3,000 people so special, compared to the 291,000 to 646,000 people that annually from the flu now?

Denise Grady, of The New York Times, reports, “As the United States recorded its first coronavirus death Saturday…, Americans wondered how to measure this new threat against a more familiar foe: influenza.”

“President Donald Trump, a self-described ‘germaphobe,’ said Wednesday he was amazed to learn that tens of thousands of Americans died from the flu each year, contrasting that number with the 60 or so known to be infected with the coronavirus. On Friday, [President] Trump accused the news media and Democrats of exaggerating the dangers of the virus.”

Isn’t that obvious?

And getting the Coronavirus is not a “death sentence.”  In fact most people are able to recover from the virus, just like most people are able to recover from the flu.

“Both the coronavirus and influenza are most dangerous to people who are older than 65, or have chronic illnesses or a weak immune system.

“There seems to be another important difference: The flu appears far more dangerous to children, particularly very young ones, who can become severely ill. Children infected with the new coronavirus tend to have mild or no symptoms.”

“As of Feb. 22, in the current [flu] season there were at least 32 million cases of flu in the United States, 310,000 hospitalizations and 18,000 flu deaths, according to the CDC. Hospitalization rates among children and young adults this year have been unusually high.”

So again, I ask you, where is the panic and finger pointing regarding our current flu numbers?

The current flu numbers are far, far worse compared to the current Coronavirus numbers.

“Doctors can recommend only the usual remedies for [ANY] viral illness: rest, medicine to reduce pain and fever, and fluids to avoid dehydration.”

We’ve all been there, haven’t we?

These “remedies,” “…can lessen the severity of the illness and shorten its course by a day or so, and they may lower the risk of serious complications.”

Anyway…, hopefully, I’ve managed to calm you down about the Coronavirus, raise your awareness about the flu, and raise your awareness as to how the fake news media and the disingenuous democrat leadership attempt to control and manipulate “the news.”
