C’MON MAN!

You can say that again!

According to Joe Hernandez and Nicholas Pugliese of WHYY-FM, a PBS and NPR affiliate in Philadelphia, “During his daily press briefing Wednesday, Murphy [Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey] unleashed an uncharacteristically angry tirade [Why does an “angry tirade” need to be characterized?] against U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for comments he made earlier in the day.”

anj 1

“The Republican from Kentucky suggested that some states and cities should declare bankruptcy instead of relying on the federal government to prop up public finances that have been obliterated by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Please notice how McConnell is tagged as “the republican from Kentucky, but that Murphy is not identified as a democrat.

Specifically, according to Ted Barrett and Manu Raju of CNN, “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a hard line Wednesday against more funding for state and local governments in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak, saying that Republicans are not interested in ‘revenue replacement for state governments’ or ‘solving their pension problems.’”

“McConnell’s tough words came a day after the Senate approved a $484 billion bill [known as coronavirus response bill phase 3.5] to help small businesses and hospitals respond to the coronavirus outbreak.”

“McConnell suggested in interviews Wednesday that Democrats are trying to get the federal government to essentially bail out state and local governments for bad decisions they have made related to public pension obligations and other sources of expensive debt.”

‘“I would certainly be in favor of allowing states to use the bankruptcy route,’ McConnell told Hugh Hewitt in a radio interview. ‘It saves some cities. And there’s no good reason for it not to be available. My guess is their first choice would be for the federal government to borrow money from future generations to send it down to them now so they don’t have to do that. That’s not something I’m going to be in favor of.’”

Agreed.  Why should states, that have been fiscally responsible, now be forced to bail out those states which have blown their budgets year after year after year, and spent money they never had, or were ever going to have.

anj 3

“New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, also slammed McConnell’s remarks Wednesday, calling it ‘one of the dumbest statements of all time.’”

I ask you…, why should the people of McConnell’s state, Kentucky, who are looked down upon as “ignorant hillbillies” by the “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals,” pick-up the tab because these “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals” don’t know how to balance their checkbook?

anj 4

And it’s gone way beyond the “balancing of checkbooks.” These “oh so wise and smart east coast liberals” have the equivalent of multiple personal loans, multiple second mortgages, and a wallet full of maxed out credit cards.

anj 6

Governor Cuomo then told his brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “Cuomo Prime Time,” ‘“He then says this is a bailout to the blue states, which was a really offensive statement.’”

This is the worst kind of “offensive statement” for a liberal…, BECAUSE IT’S THE TRUTH!

‘“Come on, man,’ Murphy said. ‘That is completely and utterly irresponsible [referring to McConnell’s suggestion that the states consider bankruptcy].’”

“C’mon yourself, Murph!

It is you and your blue state friends who are, and who have been, “utterly irresponsible.”

“Murphy suggested that, absent federal help, states would be able to stay financially afloat but be forced to make painful decisions about spending cuts.”

Cry us all a river Murphy.

Everyone, everywhere, is forced to make painful decisions from time to time.  That’s why you all are in the position you’re in.  No one chooses to be responsible or accountable.

‘“We will gut the living daylights in every state in America out of the services — the exact services — that our citizens need right now. We will just cut, cut, cut, and cut,’ Murphy warned.”

No, Governor Murphy…, not “every state…,” just those states, like yours, which have been mismanaged, while spending foolishly and irresponsibly for decades.

“Murphy again called on federal lawmakers to provide direct cash assistance to states that have been hardest hit by the pandemic so they could help residents ‘in their most profound hour of need.’”

anj 2

Are you not aware Governor Murphy, that on March 25th, Congress passed phase 3 of the coronavirus response bill, called The CARES Act [Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security]?

This was a $2 trillion [that’s $2,000,000,000,000.00] relief bill that has already targeted $340 billion [that’s $340,000,000,000.00] in aid to cities and states, based on need, regarding those states affected the worst by the virus.

Your share of that should be quite substantial, Governor.

In fact, New Jersey would be second in line for this money based on the coronavirus case numbers, and would stand to receive over $40 billion [that’s $40,000,000,000.00] in aid!

SO, WHAT IN THE HELL ARE YOU CRYING ABOUT, GOVERNOR?

anj 8

Is that a “depends” you’re wearing for a mask?

I don’t see anybody bailing me out, my friends, our families or our businesses if we choose to be stupid with our money.

But apparently you “oh so wise and smart east coast, blue state, liberals” don’t have to play by the same rules as everyone else.

You just spend, spend, spend and spend, and then expect someone else to pick up the bill?

Like I said…, I don’t see anybody bailing me out, my friends, our families or our businesses if we choose to be stupid with our money.

As usual…, your liberal sense of entitlement just rubs all of us ignorant “hillbillies” and deplorables the wrong way.

It turns out the best dressed ANTIFA wussies were prepping for the coronavirus!

We haven’t seen much from ANTIFA lately.

You know…, the group that would have you believe they are against fascism.

aantifa 11

Yes…, the masked morons have been suspiciously absent so far in 2020.

I guess their mommies won’t let them come out and play during the coronavirus lock down.

Or maybe they’re just choosing to stay home, since their costumes with the masks wouldn’t stand out with everyone out here wearing masks or scarves over their faces now.

aantifa 3

aantifa 2

It’s more likely that the ANTIFA “coordinators” are just too lazy and inept to organize anything while the rest of the sissies and bimbos are away from college.

In any case, I just wanted to take the time to remind everyone about this pathetic group of brainwashed, liberal pawns, who represent fascism and the ones who are the real fascists.

aantifa 14

ANTIFA claims to be anti-fascist, but they are the ones running around with masks on, hiding their identities, and using force to intimidate those who don’t agree with them.

aantifa 10

ANTIFA claims to be anti-fascist, but they are the ones who are opposed to free market capitalism, while promoting socialism.

aantifa 1

Excuse me…, but were there any fascist regimes that weren’t socialist in nature?

Just sayin’.

aantifa 5

So, when these ANTIFA posers decide to surface again, just remember to recognize them for what they are.

Remember to recognize them as lonely, rudderless, fools, whose desire to “belong” so badly, has led them to become a part of this confused, and manipulated, fascist and socialistic movement.

“Which way did he go, George…, which way did he go?!”

This phrase is from a 1940 Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies short film titled “Of Fox and Hounds.”

The cartoon focuses on a sly fox, George, and a lovable but dimwitted hound, Willoughby, who repeatedly asks George where the fox went, never suspecting that his “friend” George is the fox.

According to Julia Marsh and Jorge Fitz-Gibbon of The New York Post, “It is ‘unconscionable’ that Rikers Island inmates who were released due to coronavirus concerns are committing new crimes, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Monday.”

ageorge 2

ageorge 7

For my purposes here, De Blasio would be Willoughby, the lovable but dimwitted hound, minus the lovable part, and the released inmates would be represented by, George, the sly fox.

ageorge 1

‘“I think it’s unconscionable just on a human level that folks were shown mercy and this is what some of them have done,’ the mayor said during his morning briefing Monday, which came on the heels of a Post report outlining the issue.”

This article tells you all you need to know about the naive and clueless liberal mindset.

AGEORGE 12

“De Blasio said the number of re-offenders remains relatively small and that the city was ‘buckling down’ on monitoring and supervising released prisoners.”

“The number of re-offenders remains relatively small,” Mr. Mayor?

The number should be really small…, LIKE ZERO!

Everything else over zero is on you at this point.

‘“We’re going to just keep buckling down on it, making sure there’s close monitoring and supervision to the maximum step possible. And the NYPD is going to keep doing what they’re doing,’” de Blasio added.

Just for the record, “More than 1,400 city inmates have been granted early releases due to concerns about the spread of coronavirus.”

ageorge 9

The Post reported Sunday that, “At least 50 of the newly released Rikers Island prisoners were rearrested for new crimes in recent weeks — and in some cases were cut loose again.”

Wait, what?!

ageorge 3

THEY WERE CUT LOOSE AGAIN?!!!!!!!!!!

The level of irresponsibility and idiocy displayed here, by de Blasio and other New York City officials, is truly impressive!

“The Legal Aid Society, Bronx Defenders and other legal defense groups have been petitioning courts since the outbreak of the deadly global pandemic, arguing that inmates, particularly those who are older or have medical conditions, are more vulnerable to the deadly bug within the confines of city jails.”

What “defense groups” are petitioning the courts regarding the vulnerability of law-abiding citizens who will now be forced to deal with over a thousand convicted criminals being released into their midst?

The survivability rate for the coronavirus is 98.5%

The “survivability” rate of being affected by these criminals committing another crime is only 96.5%.

And the Mayor’s “virus of ignorance” is completely preventable!

Just sayin’.

“Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose.” – Janis Joplin

According to Andrew O’Reilly of Fox News, “Angry demonstrators took to the streets in North Carolina and Missouri on Tuesday to voice their discontent at their states’ stay-at-home orders amid the coronavirus pandemic.”

Virus Outbreak California

And these aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill protesters either!

These are all the people who are normally too busy working and don’t have the time to protest!

“The protests in Raleigh, N.C. and Jefferson City, Mo., are the latest in a series of protests across the country against state lockdown orders – fueled by tweets of support from President Trump and the economic unease caused by the coronavirus.”

“Holding handmade signs with slogans like ‘My Rights Are Essential’ and ‘ReOpenNC,’ hundreds of people marched through downtown Raleigh while chanting ‘Freedom Now.’”

Virus Outbreak Minnesota

“Similar signs along with a slew of American flags were seen as people began to gather outside the Missouri Capitol building.”

aprotests 4

“Protests against the lockdown orders have cropped up in numerous states over the past few weeks as some Americans have become frustrated with being told to stay at home and with the economic freefall the virus has caused.”

The virus didn’t cause the “freefall…,” it was the liberal media’s and the democrats’ reaction to it this time around that caused it.

“The federal government said Thursday that 5.2 million more Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, bringing the four-week total to about 22 million out of a work force of 159 million — easily the worst stretch of U.S. job losses on record. The losses translate to about one in seven workers.”

“Last week, hundreds of cars, trucks and SUVs descended on Michigan’s state capital Wednesday afternoon as part of a noisy protest against Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s social-distancing restrictions that critics say have gone too far. The same day, a number of people gathered outside the Kentucky Capitol building to protest Gov. Andy Beshear’s shutdown orders, while more gathered in Virginia to protest on Thursday.”

aprotests 5

Virus Outbreak Michigan

aprotests 7

“Several hundred people rallied in Texas’ capital over the weekend, chanting ‘Let us work!’ Many clamored for an immediate lifting of restrictions in a state where more than 1 million have filed for unemployment since the crisis began.”

“In Indianapolis, more than 200 people stood close together outside the governor’s mansion, carrying American flags and signs demanding that Gov. Holcomb lift restrictions.”

“Elsewhere, a few hundred demonstrators waved signs outside the Statehouse in New Hampshire.”

“More protests this week are planned in New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Wisconsin.”

aprotests 1

“While many governors have pleaded with their constituents to not protest during the public health crisis as it may only cause more people to get sick, the demonstrations – mainly organized by conservative groups – have found an ally in the president.”

‘“LIBERATE MINNESOTA!’ ‘LIBERATE MICHIGAN!’ ‘LIBERATE VIRGINIA,’ Trump said in a tweet-storm in over the weekend in which he also lashed out at New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, for criticizing the federal response.”

“Four states – Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Texas – already have lifted some restrictions or plan to this week.”

“Despite the protests and opening up of some states, many lawmakers and public health officials warn that the country is far from safe when it comes to dealing with the virus.”

The point is we’ll never be “safe.”

We were never “safe” to begin with.

If the democrats’ ultimate goal is to be safe…, here’s some suggestions…,

…quit letting criminals out of jail early so they can prey on law abiding citizens again!

…knock off this sanctuary city garbage, which protects and hides illegal immigrants with criminal records from federal authorities.

…support President Trump in his efforts to stop the flow of illegal immigrants, criminals, drugs, and human traffickers along our southern border.

…stop promoting drug use and homelessness in your big cities.

So, there.  If you democrats really want to promote safety, those are some good places to start with.

The cure can’t be worse than the disease itself.

This underlying belief is why we have never “shut down” the world before because of “the flu.”

But now we have established a precedent.

Do we really intend on “shutting down” the world every year or every other year?

Since when do we quarantine the healthy and the sick?

Tyler Olson of Fox News reports that, “Defensive Dems scold coronavirus lockdown protesters as rallies spread across country.”

“As protests spread against the stay-at-home orders put in place by governors across the country, some prominent Democrats have panned the demonstrations as dangerous and ill-informed, saying the protesters risk spreading coronavirus among themselves and contributing to a spike in cases in their states.”

How typically elitist of you to scold these protesters who were not sanctioned by the liberal hierarchy.

acure 1

But, remember…, the cure can’t be worse than the disease itself.

What would be worse…, losing your business, losing your job, losing your home, losing a place to live, losing all of your money and having to depend on charity to eat…, or possibly getting a flu that has a 98.5% survivability rate?  Which is about the same rate as every other flu that’s come down the pike?

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., addressed the protesters in an interview on ‘Fox News Sunday’ with Chris Wallace.”

‘“No, not really,’ she said when asked if she understood why people are demonstrating. ‘…I’m respectful [of] whatever people think they should say, but the fact is this has to be science-based, evidence-based, data-based.’”

Of course, she can’t understand why people are demonstrating!

She hasn’t lost her job!

I mean, she’s been in Congress for the last 100 years!

She’s still getting paid.

Her family’s livelihood isn’t being threatened.

And all of her supporters are still receiving their government checks on schedule.

She’s got enough of cash in her big fat bank accounts, just like all of her other elitist friends, to hold her over for years.

“Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer on MSNBC last week said that the protests against her stay-at-home order may lead her to extend the order, due to the fact so many people could have been exposed to the coronavirus.”

Why don’t you just get it over with and extend your order until 2022?

That way you’ll be sure to be safe from the virus…, right?

There’ll be nothing left of the state of Michigan, but you will have saved lives…, at least from the virus.

Remember…, the cure can’t be worse than the disease itself!

acure 5

‘“When you see a political rally, that’s what it was yesterday, a political rally like that where people aren’t wearing masks and they’re in close quarters and they’re touching one another … the odds are very high that they’re spreading COVID-19 along with it,’ she said. ‘So it’s that kind of irresponsible action that puts us in this situation where we might have to actually think about extending stay-at-home orders, which is supposedly what they’re protesting.’”

On a side note…, please remember that protesters are only deemed “political” when they are in disagreement with the liberal policies.  Sunday, Washington Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee explicitly said the protests were ‘illegal.’”

If I’m not mistaken, Jay, the right to protest is protected by The Constitution…, regardless of any orders you may be laying down.

Remember…, the cure can’t be worse than the disease itself.

acure 6

“The anti-stay-at-home order protests are often largely made up of supporters of the president, waving Trump flags and wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats. The governors of Michigan, Minnesota and Virginia are also all Democrats.”

Oh…, I’m sure that every single one of the protesters are Trump supporters.

What a disingenuous statement.

I’m sure there are quite a few democrats who also see the harm that some of these extended stay-at-home orders could cause.

“In addition to those states, rallies have also made their way to New York, Ohio, North Carolina, Kentucky and more.”

“Governors of both parties have cautioned against lifting social distancing measures too soon and too completely…”

“[President] Trump’s plan to reopen the economy similarly does so in phases, ‘one careful step at a time.’”

“But Democrats have been more forceful in their rhetoric, not just against protesters but also by keeping states closed.”

AGAIN…, THE CURE CAN’T BE WORSE THAN THE DISEASE ITSELF!

The democrats are dealt some heat by Hall of Fame pitcher Goose Gossage!

As a Milwaukee Brewers fan, I can remember back to the days when the Brewers would be playing the Yankees and their “closer,” Goose Gossage, would be called in from their bullpen to finish us off.

Gossage would calmly stroll to the pitcher’s mound to the tune, “Bad to the Bone,” by George Thorogood and the Destroyers, and the crowd chanting “Goose, Goose, Goose.”

He was “bad to the bone,” and he normally would finish us off in short order.

agoose 3

agoose 2

Well, he’s retired from baseball now, but he’s still firing fastballs of the truth at a new team…, The Washington Liberals!”

Ryan Gaydos of Fox News reports that, “[Hall of Fame closer Goose] Gossage, who has gotten political over the last few years and has been an outspoken supporter of Trump, told NJ.com he wants to see some of the top Democrats go to jail.”

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

‘“I’m hoping and I’m praying that these (expletive) go off the cliff to never be heard from again,’ Gossage said. ‘All of them! Nancy Pelosi and that lying Chuck Schumer. And then (expletive) Robert Mueller and the (expletive) Mueller Report, and the FBI … I hope some of them go to jail!’”

agoose 6

agoose 7

It seems that Goose is venting his frustration regarding our apparent two-tiered justice system, which sees liberal politicians and various members of “the swamp” get away with just about anything, while the rest of us are held to the letter of the law.

“Gossage, who reminisced with the newspaper about the life of Hank Steinbrenner, said it’s Trump who can be the only person to replace Steinbrenner as owner of the Yankees. He also said he was an unabashed Trump supporter.”

“The former Yankees pitcher told NJ.com he felt Trump was being unfairly criticized for how he handled the coronavirus pandemic.”

agoose 8

That’s true, Goose, but it shouldn’t be of any surprise.

President Trump is unfairly criticized on a daily basis, for whatever he does, by the democrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

‘“It’s just lies, lies, BS, BS,’ he said. ‘They don’t even respect the election. The majority of liberals still think the Russians got him in office. They all want him out of power.’”

“He added that he believes Democrats want the economy to be in the gutter in order for Joe Biden to claim the White House in November.”

agoose 9

‘“I cannot even fathom that they would go to this length, but this is the last straw,’ Gossage said. ‘Where would you attack Trump? In the economy. That’s all they have. And let me tell you something, people are (expletive) dying and the liberals could give a rat’s a-s.’”

At this point, Goose, there isn’t any length the democrats won’t go to.

‘“Our civil liberties are under siege. And Biden, he can’t put two (expletive) sentences together!’”

“Gossage said he was a Democrat who voted for former President Barack Obama and that Trump ‘earned’ his vote during the 2016 election.”

“Gossage [who] pitched from 1972 to 1994…, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2008. He was a World Series champion in 1978 with the Yankees, was a nine-time All-Star and finished in the top five in Cy Young voting four times.”

Goose’s new theme song should be “Sad but true,” by Metallica!

If we aren’t in the middle of an emergency, what would you call it?!

Jacob Pramuk for CNBC reports that, “The House will not return to Washington until May 4 ‘unless it has to pass an emergency bill.’”

“The Senate is set to return April 20 as of now.”

“The House will not come back to Washington until at least May 4 unless it needs to pass emergency measures to respond to the coronavirus pandemic, [Democrat] Majority Leader [A congressman from Maryland, and the second ranking Democrat in the House of Representatives behind Nancy Pelosi] Steny Hoyer’s office told representatives Monday.”

acongress 1

“House members, most of whom have been in their districts for all of April as Covid-19 spreads, will not have to travel to Washington before May 4 ‘absent an emergency,’ the Maryland Democrat’s office said. It added that lawmakers would get ‘sufficient notice’ if they have to travel to Washington to vote on coronavirus legislation.”

“Absent an emergency?”

Pelosi and Hoyer don’t think what the country is experiencing right now is an emergency?

acongress 3

The money set aside for small business relief, $350 billion, has already run out, and many small businesses and their employees are in jeopardy.

That’s not an emergency enough for you, Steny?

That’s not an emergency enough for you, Nancy?

acongress 2

“As efforts to stall the coronavirus’ spread have wrecked the U.S. economy…, Senate Republicans last week tried to pass a bill to inject $250 billion more into a small business loan program set up in the rescue legislation. Democrats blocked the measure, then the GOP rejected a Democratic counter offer that included more money for states and hospitals fighting the pandemic, along with funding for food assistance programs.”

Can we not just increase the money available to small businesses, and then address all of this other stuff with a separate bill?

Do we really have to muddy the waters every time with every bill?

It really shouldn’t be that difficult.

acongress 8

“While Democrats have held some discussions with the Trump administration on the issue, neither major party’s congressional leaders have showed a willingness to back down from their demands yet.”

Just like the band on board The Titanic playing while the ship was sinking.

acongress 4

“Republicans refused to back down over the weekend. In a joint statement Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy said, ‘they reject the Democrats’ reckless threat to continue blocking job-saving funding unless we renegotiate unrelated programs which are not in similar peril.’”

Like I said, “Can we not just increase the money available to small businesses, and then address all of this other stuff with a separate bill?”

“While Congress has been out of the Capitol, the coronavirus has taken a steeper human and economic toll. U.S. Covid-19 cases now top 560,000, and the disease has been linked to more than 22,800 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.”

“Meanwhile, more than 16 million people have filed new jobless claims over a three-week period.”

You think Sleepy Joe Biden should do what?!

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “The U.S. presidential election is still seven months away but an MSNBC host is already suggesting that Democrat Joe Biden set up a ‘shadow government’ against the Trump administration amid the coronavirus outbreak.”

abidengov 8

“Stephanie Ruhle pitched the idea Wednesday during an interview with Jim Messina, who served as deputy chief of staff of operations under former President Barack Obama.”

abidengov 2

Uh, helloooo Stephanie…, the democrats already have a “shadow government” set up…, it’s called “the deep state,” or “the swamp.”

Unless you’re calling for a Civil War type of situation, like when the Confederates established their own separate government.

Is that what you’re calling for Stephanie?

abidengov 4

You said Biden should “set up a shadow government against the Trump administration.”

You do realize that President Trump’s administration is our administration…, The United States’ administration, don’t you?

Are you proposing some kind of treasonous type plot, Stephanie…, ala “the lovers,” Peter Strzok and Lisa Page?

abidengov 3

I mean the Democrats versus the Republicans thing can only go so far, right?

In the end we are all Americans, right?

Because it seems like you are suggesting that the democrats should be actively subverting and undermining the duly elected government of these United States.

It seems like you are suggesting that the democrats should be actively subverting and undermining the duly elected president of these United States.

That definitely sound revolutionary to me, Stephanie, and at least  treasonous in nature.

Are you sure that’s what you’re suggesting?

abidengov 5

“Ruhle asked whether Biden should be offering his own version of a daily coronavirus briefing, to compete with the White House sessions that Trump has been leading to keep the public informed about the U.S. response to the outbreak.”

‘“Then do they need to do it in a bigger way?’ she asked about the Biden campaign. ‘What did you call it, the president’s daily clown show — that’s his press briefing?’”

Talk about “a clown show!”

abidengov 7

‘“Should Joe Biden be counter-programming that?’ Ruhle asked. ‘Should he be creating his own shadow government, shadow Cabinet, shadow SWAT team — and getting up there at a podium every night, saying, “Here’s the crisis we’re in, here’s what we need to do to address this”?’”

Sooooo, let me get this straight…, you want Sleepy Joe to get up and give a coronavirus briefing every day, just like President Trump does, except Sleepy Joe’s briefing would carry no weight and would only serve to confuse people, at the expense making Creepy Joe seem important or relative?

What a good suggestion, Stephanie!  That is exactly the type of idiotic suggestion we would expect to originate from some clueless liberal at MSNBC.

abidengov 9

“Messina responded: ‘Well, he’s done some of that, right? He’s released the most comprehensive plans of what to do during this COVID crisis.’”

Oh really, Messina?

“He’s released the most comprehensive plans of what to do during this COVID crisis?”

Is this response similar to the response he and his buddy Barack hatched during the H1N1 flu (swine flu) crisis a few years back?

You know…, the pandemic from 2009-2010 which saw up to 89 million cases and up to 18,300 deaths in the U.S. according to the CDC.

You know…, the response that wasn’t?

There were no closures.

There were no cancellations of anything.

There was no shutting down the economy.

There were no travel bans.

There were no quarantines.

There was no social distancing.

Nothing.

Nice response Joe.

But now you have all of the answers?

They say hind sight is 20/20…, but I guess hind sight is all you have when your head is up you’re a$$!!!

The most important election of our lifetimes…, WAS THE LAST ONE!

Matt Flegenheimer for The New York Times asks, “What if the Most Important Election of Our Lifetimes Was the Last One?”

My response to him would be the last election, in 2016, was definitely the most important election of our lifetimes.

The election of 2016 showed that the people who really care about our country could still win a national election, regardless of the blatant liberal propaganda media and the millions of fraudulent votes fabricated by the liberal democrats.

The election of 2016 put an end to the appeasement of Muslim terrorists and those who support them.

The election of 2016 put an end to the wholesale shipment of American jobs overseas.

The election of 2016 put an end to the allowance of virtually every foreign country taking advantage of us via unfair trade agreements and policies.

The election of 2016 ended our dependence on oil from the Middle East.

The election of 2016 brought manufacturing back to America, most importantly of steel, which was a national defense concern.

The election of 2016 has put a finger in the dyke of the seemingly never ending leak of illegal and dangerous immigrants into our country.

The election of 2016 has brought to light many abuses perpetrated by the FBI, the DOJ, the CIA and more, which would have never even been known had Hillary Clinton won the 2016 election.

The election of 2016 forced the liberal propaganda, fake news media to finally, and unquestionably, show themselves for who they are…, an arm of the democrat party, an enemy of our country an enemy of the American people.

The election of 2016 short circuited the unconstitutional UN-Affordable Care Act, better known as ObamaCare, and the attempted government takeover of our private healthcare system.

The election of 2016 brought long awaited reforms which improved the performance of the VA system and the overall treatment of our veterans.

The election of 2016 resulted in the rebuilding and upgrading of our military across the board.

The election of 2016 also resulted in the slashing of thousands and thousands of suffocating and obstructing federal regulations.

Other than that, the election of 2016 wasn’t important at all!

Flegenheimer continues, “Politics runs on superlative: the best plan, the biggest rally, the most votes.”

“And one trope [a figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression] has proved most enduring of all, repeated each campaign season with well-practiced conviction.”

Hold on a minute.

What is it with these “reporters” from The Times and The Post?  Why do they always feel the need to interject some word that no one ever uses?

I’m sure Flegenheimer spent quite a bit of time coming up with that “elitist word of the day.”

Anyway…, back to the one “figurative or metaphorical use of a word or expression which has proved most enduring of all, and repeated each campaign season with well-practiced conviction.”

‘“This is the most important election of our lifetimes,’ Bernie Sanders said of 2020 last month.”

‘“The most important election of our lives,’ Pete Buttigieg agreed in February.”

‘“Maybe the most important election,’ Joe Biden ruled last year, hedging slightly, ‘no matter how young or old you are.’”

“Maybe. But what if they’re wrong this time? What if the other clichés — of dice cast and Rubicons [defining moments] crossed [there we go again] — have finally overwritten this one? [I actually think he meant to say ‘dies cast.’]”

“What if the most important election of our lifetimes happened already?”

“[President] Trump is in charge during a generational emergency, briefing the nation on life and death with an eye toward television ratings and miracle cures. It can feel unlikely that any choice in 2020 will be as consequential as the fact that he won in the first place.”

“Another Democratic primary day passed on Tuesday, this one in Wisconsin, and with it another reminder of the present limits of presidential politics, of how large the last decision looms and how distant the next one seems.”

Regarding the 2016 election, ‘“It was the rejection of business as usual,’ said Rebecca Kirszner Katz, a progressive Democratic strategist. ‘And that includes any form of competent governing.’”

The word “competent” being a matter of opinion, of course.

To be sure the 2016 election was “the rejection of business as usual.” And if you believe career establishment politicians and anti-American policies represent competency, then Ms. Kirszner Katz is your girl.

“Recent weeks have at once exposed the messiness of the federal virus response and the consistency of [President] Trump’s rampaging leadership instincts, delivering a moment that has at last closed the gap between the permanent chaos of his White House, a once-remote sideshow for many Americans, and the daily upheaval in their own lives.”

Okay, Mr. Flegenheimer, I just have to dissect this last remark.

“The messiness of the federal virus response?”

At least we have a federal response!

And what is “messy” about it?  We have daily, transparent, briefings from The President and his team, and plan of action that’s endorsed by the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

What kind of “response” was put together by any other president in the last 50+ years regarding a “response” to a potentially dangerous virus?

Go ahead Flegenheimer…, talk amongst your friends…, I’ll wait.

I hate to interrupt, but…

Don’t you recall other presidents banning travel from foreign countries?

Don’t you recall other presidents ordering that people be quarantined before reentering our country?

Don’t you recall other presidents shutting down educational systems across the country in order to guard against the spread of a virus?

Don’t you recall other presidents ordering all non-essential business be suspended and all personal interactions be limited in order to guard against the spread of a virus?

NO, OF COURSE YOU DON’T, Flegenheimer!

YOU DON’T RECALL ANY OTHER PRESIDENTS DOING ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T DO ANYTHING…, BESIDES GIVE US ALL A BUNCH OF MEANINGLESS LIP SERVICE!

Please let me remind you, Flegenheimer, since you seem to be factually challenged…,

… we currently have seen 1.9 million coronavirus cases worldwide, resulting in 120,500 deaths.

… we currently have seen 555,000 cases in the United States, resulting in 21,900 deaths.

… in 2009, the H1N1 virus, or the Swine Flu, effected a billion people worldwide, with 284,000 estimated fatalities.  How come our country wasn’t shut down for this outbreak, President Obama?  Sleepy Joe Biden?  Anybody?

… in 2003 we had the SARS virus.

… in 1999 we had the West Nile Virus.

… in 1968 we had the H3N2 virus, or the Hong Kong Flu, where 33,800 people died in the U.S.

… and in 1957 over a million people died from the Asian Flu worldwide, while 116,000 died in the United States.

When have we cancelled, closed, or shut down anything before because of a virus?

The correct answer is NEVER.

Getting back to your remark…, “[President] Trump’s rampaging leadership instincts,” could also be referred to as decisive, informed leadership, which has saved tens of thousands of lives.

And then you talk about “a moment that has at last closed the gap between the permanent chaos of his White House, a once-remote sideshow for many Americans, and the daily upheaval in their own lives.”

May I suggest that any “chaos” in the White House, if there is any, is instigated and nurtured by you and your friends in the liberal propaganda, fake news media, and your democrat friends.

‘“What do you have to lose?’ [President] Trump famously asked black voters in 2016, suggesting he was a risk worth taking. He has repeated the question more recently in a new context: to encourage stricken citizens, in defiance of expert opinion, to try an anti-malarial drug to combat the coronavirus.”

Again, aiding you in your “factual challengedness,” Mr. Flegenheimer, the drug you’re referring to is hydroxychloroquine, and it has been proven to be quite effective in many cases.  In fact, many have given the drug credit for saving their lives.

“Of course, the answer to [President] Trump’s initial prompt has always been evident to most Democrats. At stake were health care plans, immigration policies, a generation of court seats and now, they say, many lives that would not have been lost to the coronavirus under more capable executive stewardship.”

And, of course, “the answer” to your answer is that your answer is all politically motivated anti-Trump propaganda and fake news.

‘“I believe history will look back on four years of this president and all he embraces as an aberrant moment in time,’ Biden said in his announcement video last year. ‘But if we give Donald Trump eight years in the White House, he will forever and fundamentally alter the character of this nation.’”

Only in a positive way, Sleepy Joe…, only in a positive way.

Oh, and by the way, Sleepy Joe, wasn’t it you who called President Trump a “xenophobe” [a person having a dislike of or prejudice against people from other countries] for blocking any travel from China at the onset of the outbreak, and probably saving tens of thousands of American lives as a result?

Yes…, it was you Sleepy Joe…, don’t be shy!

‘“The striking thing about the first term is how much damage he was able to inflict,’ said Robert [the third] Reich, a former labor secretary under Bill Clinton who endorsed Sanders in the primary. ‘At the margin, he probably could do more with two terms, and I wouldn’t wish that on this nation. But he’s already done a huge amount.’”

Reich’s level of confusion here is both stunning and impressive.

How could a former labor secretary describe President Trump’s accomplishments regarding the lowest unemployment rates across the board, in history, as “damage?”

“In less trying times, Biden’s record on the subject had been consistent.”

Yes…, consistently a bunch of hot air.

‘“The most important election you’ve ever been part of,’ he told voters in 2018, rallying for midterm candidates.”

‘“The most important election,’ he said in 2016, stumping for Hillary Clinton, ‘in any of your lives.’”

Yeah…, we know…, it’s like, “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.  Period.  If you like your plan you can keep your plan.  Period.”

They’re all just disingenuous words spouting out of an establishment politician’s mouth for the sake of those ignorant enough to believe them.

WINNING!
