Ahhh! The liberal zombies are everywhere!

adead 14

And the liberal zombies aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill zombies.

These liberal zombies can speak, and speak well in some cases!

Yes, they can speak, but they don’t use their brain in any kind of independent thought.

The majority of these liberal zombies just regurgitate what they hear from their liberal zombie leaders and their liberal zombie propaganda disseminators, like the fake news media and college professors across the land.

These liberal zombies are filled with a sense of aloofness and a sense of entitlement…, along with being filled with hate.

These liberal zombies have learned their lessons well from their creators.

adead 16

Lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

Lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

Lie, lie, lie…, deny, deny, deny.

There is no known cure for this zombie liberalism.

azaid 15

We do see random cases, from time to time, however, where a democrat will experience an epiphany, or “an awakening,” when all of the liberal lies and misinformation are just too much to comprehend anymore.

When this happens, we welcome these “born again” individuals back to the ranks of the “free thinkers!”

Back to the ranks of the independent thinkers.

Back to the ranks of the common sense thinkers.

It is truly a great experience, when a person is able to free themselves from the liberal ties that have been binding them!

Many of them share their experience at the #walkaway campaign.

Nuke that microbe!

I read about, hear about, and see people who are just losing their minds over this coronavirus thing.

They are attempting to hermetically seal themselves off from the outside world in an effort to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

aperfect 7

It’s almost comical to me to watch some of these people chasing their tails in an effort to combat this un-seeable enemy which may be lurking on any surface, or floating along on any waft of air.

aperfect 4

We’ve got people in hazmat suits.

We’ve got people wearing all manner of masks.

We’ve got people disinfecting anything they may touch or come in contact with.

We’ve got people washing and scrubbing their hands incessantly.

aperfect 2

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, there are over 1,700 known viruses, bacteria, and other pathogens that infect people.

And this data was prior to the rise of the coronavirus.

So we can now change that figure to over 1,701.

Each year in the United States about 36,000 people die from flu-related complications, and more than 200,000 are hospitalized.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), “Infectious diseases kill over 17 million people a year [worldwide].  Nearly 50,000 men, women and children are dying every day from infectious diseases.”

And these figures from the World Health Organization are prior to the rise of the coronavirus as well…, and you just started all of your masking, disinfecting, scrubbing and social distancing a couple weeks ago?

aperfect 8

Hmmmm?

We have to ask ourselves, what has suddenly changed that we are so concerned about an infectious disease?

aperfect 9

The only thing I know for sure is that America and the world will never be the same again…, for better or for worse.

I’m thinking worse.

aperfect 3

I would like to recommend reading the book, “Be a perfect person in just three days,” by Stephen Manes.

aperfect 1

I think it’s especially relevant these days, regarding cures that may be worse than the disease itself.

Stories like this show what makes America great!

According to Alexandra Deabler of Fox News, “A Florida restaurant was left stunned by one diner’s generosity.  A regular at Skillets diner in North Naples left behind a $10,000 tip in a bid to help restaurant staff get through the current coronavirus outbreak, which has forced eateries to close dining room service and lose out on wages.”

A $10,000 tip!

agreat 4

“The owner of the restaurant, Ross Edlund, told WFLA that the customer, who chose to stay anonymous, explained, ‘I want each person in this restaurant to get 500 dollars.’”

agreat 1

agreat 2

And they want to remain anonymous.

“The manager distributed the money to the 20 employees, Edlund said.”

“Of the current measures Florida is taking to flatten the curve of the coronavirus outbreak, such as closing restaurant dining rooms and bars, Edlund says he supports them.”

“According to Naples Daily News, Edlund estimates he had to lay off 90 percent of his staff as restaurants have been forced to close, and residents are asked to stay indoors and practice social distancing.”

‘“We believe that what is being done is the correct thing in spite of the fact it’s causing us hardship,’ he said.”

His business is going under, but he still supports what’s being done because he understands it’s for the best, considering the big picture.

“The restaurant industry has been hit particularly hard as the global pandemic grows across the United States.”

So here we see multiple examples of what makes America great…, some of the people we have in this country.

I say “some” because most Americans are very generous…, it’s just that there are those who are better at being generous with other people’s money as opposed to their own.

That being said…, we have gracious and generous customers and donors.

We have business owners who are able to somehow survive, but also see past their bottom lines.

We have customers who are considerate of others and willing to follow safety advisories, for everyone’s sake.

And we have employees and former employees doing the best they can, considering the situation.

There’s no whining.

There’s no crying.

There’s no finger pointing going on.

There’s only the recognition of what the situation is and the resolve to make the best of that situation.

Everyone chipping in whatever they can to help out.

That’s the American way.

That’s what makes America great.

People don’t seem to have a problem with “the working poor,” and I’m not sure why.

apoor 3

Max Zahn for Yahoo Finance reports, “In a newly released interview, taped on March 3, the head of anti-poverty nonprofit, ‘Robin Hood,’ says, ‘there’s something fundamentally wrong’ with the fact that people can work full-time and still live in poverty.”

apoor 2

‘“When you have a situation where you have people who are working in some cases multiple jobs and still not able to do the basics of supporting their family, we’re not valuing work,’ says Wes Moore, the chief executive of New York City-based philanthropic organization Robin Hood.”

‘“We’re not valuing effort,’ he adds. ‘We’re not being honest about what it means to be able to really support people in this environment.’”

apoor 1

I couldn’t agree more, Mr. Moore.

“Moore, whose organization was founded by hedge fund manager Paul Tudor Jones in 1988, said an increase in minimum wage requirements is part of the solution but will not solve the problem on its own.”

‘“We need to come up with a multitude of answers to include raising wages,’ he says. ‘We have structures and systems that continue to allow this level of inequality to take place.’”

apoor 6

And now with the economic implications of the coronavirus, our working poor are the first ones hit, and the ones hit the hardest.

“A study released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics last April found that 39.7 million people, or 12.3% of the U.S. population, lived below the poverty level in 2017 — of whom 6.9 million were considered “working poor.” As of January, 29 states mandated wage floors higher than the federal minimum rate of $7.25 per hour, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.”

$7.25 an hour comes to $58.00 a day.

$7.25 an hour comes to $290.00 a week.

$7.25 an hour comes to $1,740 a month.

$7.25 an hour comes to $20,880 a year.

That’s before taxes, deductions for insurance, etc.

A person earning minimum wage is probably actually taking home around $1,200 a month.

After paying for rent and utilities, that doesn’t leave much at all for food, phone, a car, car insurance, gas, and other miscellaneous expenses.

apoor 4

“We have this falsity that if people just work hard enough that they’re going to be OK,” Moore says.

“Public policies, like the federal minimum wage, play a central role in addressing poverty, Moore said.”

‘“I find it to be imperative that we’re involved in the policy conversation,’ he says. ‘We have policies that are putting people and keeping people in poverty.’”

Again, I totally agree.

apoor 13

The federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour, but are you aware that many of the people that serve us in restaurants typically make less than that?  It isn’t uncommon for servers to be making $2.50, $3.00, $4.00 or $5.00 an hour, depending on tips to raise their earnings.

I’m willing to bet that a majority of “the working poor” work at restaurants as servers, cooks, hosts, bartenders, dishwashers, etc.

I’ve worked in restaurants, and I’m here to tell you that being a server (a waitress or a waiter) is not an easy job.  I’m sure that many of the people who sit there and complain about their server could not do any better or even do their job at all.

apoor 5

Yet we have no problem with these people, making next to nothing, serving us, whenever we require them to do so…, and they better be nice about it!

How far away from slave labor is three-four bucks an hour, anyway?

Why should these people have to work for next to nothing to insure we have a less expensive dinner whenever we decide to go out?

If our dinner costs $75.00, would it kill us to pay $85.00 for that dinner in order to make sure these food service workers could make a living wage?

For some reason, our perception of “service industry” jobs is one of second class jobs.

But how enjoyable would our lives be if no one chose to work in the service industry?

It’s going to get to the point where these people are better off doing nothing.  We’re probably at or past that point already.

Think about it.

Like Wes Moore said, “We’re not valuing work,” and “we’re not valuing effort.”

As a society, we’re willing to hand money and benefits out to those who choose not to work, but we’re not willing to give a hand to those who are willing to work and are making the effort.

Does that make any sense?

Maybe if you’re a politician looking for votes from a dependent class of people, but not to anyone else.

If we’re unwilling to raise the minimum wage to around $15.00 an hour, for full and part time work, then we need to address some additional compensation and benefits via the government.

Although, believe it or not, there are those who don’t want any handouts from the government or anyone else.

Every time the discussion starts about raising the minimum wage, we hear the same old and tired arguments…, “these are entry level jobs…,” “I’ll have to cut staff…,” I can’t afford to pay that much, I’ll go out of business…,” yada, yada, yada.

apoor 8

apoor 11

First of all…, let’s just get over the entry level concept.  A job is a job.

And second, if the minimum wage is raised, all businesses will have to deal with it, so it will still be a level playing field.  Things and services will just cost a little more.

I think we’ll all survive.

Again…, people who are willing to work are the ones who should be rewarded, not those looking for free handouts.

Most people and politicians prefer to lay the blame for this situation on the greedy business owners…, and there is plenty of blame to lay at their feet…, but the rest of us need to accept our share of the blame as well.

We are all taking advantage of the working poor as well, by allowing this to happen every day.

apoor 7

We glorify our standard of living while standing on the backs of these people who are just trying to scratch out a living, then turn around and condemn the owners and those more fortunate that ourselves…, and there is always someone more fortunate than ourselves, so we’re covered as far as the blame game goes.

Remember…, when you point a finger at someones else, there are three fingers pointing back at you.

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

amostprep 12

Well, ga-a-a-aaoooolly.

amostprep 13

Well, who’d a thunk it?!

amostprep 6

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.

INSIDER TRADING BY SENATORS DISCOVERED!

If it looks like insider trading, sounds like insider trading, and smells like insider trading…, then it’s probably insider trading.

These politicians definitely have their privileges!

ainsiders 9

And there are many more out there who benefited from their advance knowledge…, believe me…, but these were the only ones stupid enough to get caught.

According to Dom Calicchio of Fox News, “Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California and three of her Senate colleagues reported selling off stocks worth millions of dollars in the days before the coronavirus outbreak crashed the market, according to reports.”

Hmmm, what an absolute coincidence?

“The data is listed on a U.S. Senate website containing financial disclosures from Senate members.”

“Feinstein, who serves as ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and her husband sold between $1.5 million and $6 million in stock…between Jan. 31 and Feb. 18, The New York Times reported.”

ainsiders 1

“Feinstein defended herself in a series of tweets on Friday, saying she has ‘no control’ over her assets and the stocks in question were her husband’s transactions.”

Here we go again…, deny, deny, deny…, lie, lie, lie.

‘“During my Senate career I’ve held all assets in a blind trust of which I have no control. Reports that I sold any assets are incorrect, as are reports that I was at a January 24 briefing on coronavirus, which I was unable to attend,’ she tweeted.”

‘“Under Senate rules I report my husband’s financial transactions. I have no input into his decisions. My husband in January and February sold shares of a cancer therapy company. This company is unrelated to any work on the coronavirus and the sale was unrelated to the situation.’”

Her sales were “completely unrelated” to the coronavirus situation.

Oh I get it…, “someone” just decided to sell off between $1.5 million and $6 million of her and her husband’s stock, right in the midst of a record breaking stock market for no good reason.

Sounds legit to me.

And I’m not cutting any of our Republican friends any slack either.

ainsiders 6

“Reports identified the three other senators as Richard Burr of North Carolina, Kelly Loeffler of Georgia and James Inhofe of Oklahoma, all Republicans.”

“Burr, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, used more than 30 transactions to dump between $628,000 and $1.72 million on Feb. 13, according to ProPublica.”

Senate Lawmakers Hold Media Availability After Weekly Policy Luncheons

“The report said the transactions involved a significant percentage of the senator’s holdings and took place about a week before the impact of the virus outbreak sent stock prices plunging to the point where gains made during President Trump’s term in office were largely erased.”

‘“Senator Burr filed a financial disclosure form for personal transactions made several weeks before the U.S. and financial markets showed signs of volatility due to the growing coronavirus outbreak,’ a Burr spokesperson said. ‘As the situation continues to evolve daily, he has been deeply concerned by the steep and sudden toll this pandemic is taking on our economy.’”

“On Friday, the senator tweeted an updated statement saying he relied only on ‘public news reports’ to guide his decision on the sale. Still, he said he’s asked for a Senate Ethics Committee review of his actions.”

“Burr was an author of the Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness Act, a law that helps determine the federal response to situations such as the coronavirus outbreak, ProPublica reported. Burr’s office would not comment on what kind of information Burr might have received about coronavirus prior to his stock sales, the outlet reported.”

“[Senator] Loeffler was appointed to the Senate in December by Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp after incumbent Sen. Johnny Isakson resigned because of health issues – despite allies of President Trump having urged Kemp to select Rep. Doug Collins instead.”

“Loeffler and her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, sold stock Jan. 24, the same day she sat in on a briefing from two members of Trump’s Coronavirus Task Force, The Daily Beast reported.”

“Between that day and Feb. 14, the couple sold stock worth a total between $1.2 million and $3.1 million, the report said. In addition to the sales, they also purchased stock in a maker of software that helps people work at home – just before millions of Americans were forced to leave their offices because of the outbreak, the report said.”

“Loeffler slammed the Daily Beast report as a ‘ridiculous and baseless attack’ in a pair of late-night tweets.”

‘“This is a ridiculous and baseless attack. I do not make investment decisions for my portfolio. Investment decisions are made by multiple third-party advisors without my or my husband’s knowledge or involvement,’ Loeffler wrote. ‘As confirmed in the periodic transaction report to Senate Ethics, I was informed of these purchases and sales on February 16, 2020 — three weeks after they were made.’”

ainsiders 2

“In an interview Friday with Fox News’ Ed Henry, Loeffler again said any claim of insider trading is ‘absolutely false.’”

“[Senator] Inhofe sold as much as $400,000 in stock all on Jan. 27, in companies such as PayPal, Apple and real estate company Brookfield Asset Management, The New York Times reported.”

“But in a written statement, Inhofe pushed back by saying he was not at a late January briefing and, further, does not have involvement in investment choices.”

ainsiders 4

“The statement said: ‘The New York Times allegations are completely baseless and 100 percent false. I was not at the briefing on January 24. I was meeting with pro-life kids from Oklahoma here for the March for Life and the new nominee to be U.S. Ambassador to Tanzania. I do not have any involvement in my investment decisions. In December 2018, shortly after becoming chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I instructed my financial advisor to move me out of all stocks and into mutual funds to avoid any appearance of controversy. My advisor has been doing so faithfully since that time and I am not aware of or consulted about any transactions.’”

I really wish all four of these senators would give the rest of us a little credit for not being completely gullible and/or stupid.

ainsiders 7

This really is just another case of “the rich get richer.”

ainsiders 5

Isn’t it just so completely obvious that these individuals used knowledge, that wasn’t available to the rest of us, to advance themselves financially at the expense of everybody else?

Again…, if it looks like insider trading, sounds like insider trading, and smells like insider trading…, then it’s probably insider trading.

ainsiders 8

You can say you’re not responsible for your stocks or your money all day long, but in the end these are your stocks and it is your money, and YOU ARE responsible for it!

This whole thing stinks to high heaven, and these people need to held accountable.

But, the odds are we’ll just end up seeing another shining example of our wonderful two-tiered justice system.

We have to always remember…, that there’s this club, and we ain’t in it!

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!

Everybody was “Kung Flu” fighting!

According to Alexander Nazaryan of Yahoo News, “In a press conference on Wednesday morning, President Trump defended his efforts to brand the coronavirus epidemic as a specifically Chinese disease. Although it did originate there, Trump’s critics have said blaming China for the outbreak is xenophobic and racist.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd…, President Trump’s critics calling him xenophobic and racist!

Couldn’t we have just assumed that?

Just sayin’.

‘“Why do you keep calling this the Chinese virus?’” ABC reporter Cecilia Vega asked The President, “during a briefing with the White House coronavirus task force.”

“The reporter noted that there has been a rise of racist incidents, some of them violent, against people of Asian origin across the United States.”

Oh, really, Ms. Vega?

I haven’t heard about any of these “racist incidents… against people of Asian origin across the United States.”

Especially due to The President referring to COVID-19 as “the Chinese virus.”

How exactly are you able to make that connection, Ms. Vega?

Is this one of those liberal propaganda scenarios like the video that supposedly caused the Benghazi attack?

Perhaps you’d be willing to share more details and facts about these “incidents” you refer to?

I’m sure you heard about the “incidents” through unnamed sources who heard about the “incidents” second or third hand.

If there were actual racial “incidents,” I’m sure your network and organization (ABC) would be more than excited to shine their light on them.

I won’t be holding my breath waiting for these stories to surface, however.

‘“It’s not racist at all,’ [President] Trump said in defending his and his allies’ use of terms like ‘the Chinese virus’ and ‘the Wuhan virus,’ a reference to the city where it originated. ‘It comes from China, that’s why,’ the president continued. ‘It comes from China. I want to be accurate.’”

“Beijing has also promoted conspiracy theories that include blaming members of the U.S. military for causing the pandemic, something that clearly displeases [President] Trump. ‘That can’t happen,’ he said of that allegation. ‘It’s not going to happen. Not as long as I am president.’”

The White House later accused the media of “fake outrage” after the press conference:

“Spanish Flu. West Nile Virus. Zika. Ebola. All named for places.

Before the media’s fake outrage, even CNN called it the ‘Chinese Coronavirus.’

Those trying to divide us must stop rooting for America to fail and give Americans real info they need to get through the crisis.  — The White House (@WhiteHouse) March 18, 2020”

That’s right…, in the past we have had the Spanish flu, the West Nile Virus, the Asian flu, and the Hong Kong flu.

Nobody was crying about any racism or xenophobia in those cases.

Perhaps you should do a little research about a subject before you go shooting your mouth off about it, Ms. Vega?

Isn’t that a novel idea?

I don’t know what’s worse…, your journalistic deficiencies or having to listen to your condescending tone…, albeit fraudulent and stupidly elitist in nature.

BAM!

Take that Cecelia Vega!

David Knowles of Yahoo News reports, “The virus appears to have originated at Huanan live-animal market in Wuhan [China]. Of the first 41 people infected with the virus, 27 had gone to the market, which sells and kills animals, some of them wild, for consumption, Vox reported. In 2002, officials traced the outbreak of the SARS virus to a market in southern China that also sold live, wild animals for food.”

“China’s so-called ‘wet markets’ arose in the 1970s, when famine killed millions there. In 1978, China’s Communist government allowed private farming, and a decade later it legalized the private industry of raising and selling wildlife.”

“The unsanitary conditions of these markets and storage of animals in crates on top of one another has been blamed for the transmission of viruses between species. In the initial stages of the SARS outbreak, Chinese officials withheld information on the number of people infected and later conceded it was ‘not well prepared’ for the epidemic.”

Nice.

I believe, like President Trump, that China fully deserves to take the credit, again, for this latest virus…, “The Chinese Virus,” or “The Wuhan Virus,” and that there’s nothing xenophobic or racist about it.

Is our response to the coronavirus unrealistic?

I see that this event is getting cancelled, and that school is closing down, and these games are being suspended, and any plans that involve interactions with people are being changed.

We’re wearing masks, washing our hands 20 times a day, and consuming hand sanitizer like never before.

Is it all really necessary?

Are these new “health” practices going to end up being more harmful than helpful?

I mean, the regular old annual flu is way more dangerous than the coronavirus is.

Are we setting a precedent now where we’re going to implement all of these travel bans and event cancellations and school closures every new flu season?

acorona3 5

acorona3 6

How can we not now?

How can we pretend one is more dangerous than the other?

How can we put all of these restrictions in place to avoid one virus but not another?

Does that make any sense?

Why have we been willing to just go about our normal everyday lives with the flu virus lurking out there, behind every cough, every sneeze, every handshake, and all of our everyday interactions?

Why is risking getting the flu any less risky than getting the coronavirus?

acorona3 2

Why were we one day completely okay with the potential of catching the flu and the next day completely freaking out over the possibility of catching something that’s not even as bad?

Oh…, and just a reminder…, 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.

The seasonal flu kills between 291,000 and 646,000 people worldwide each year, according to estimates.

Again…, it doesn’t make any sense.

Worldwide 4,756 people have died due to the coronavirus as of today.

But making sense is not the strong suit of the democrats or their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

It is not a requirement either.

In fact, a situation like this is a perfect one for the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media.

Why?

Because it’s a situation that The President can’t win.

Have we been able to eliminate the flu?

No.

Will we be able to eliminate the coronavirus?

Probably not.

And certainly not anytime soon.

And as long as the coronavirus hangs around, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media can stand back, whip up the hysteria, and take pot shots at him.

acorona3 3

Boy…, the democrats and their co-conspirators, the liberal propaganda, fake news media friends are sure desperate to gain political control over this country again, aren’t they?

They are just hell-bent on destroying this country and our way of life.

That’s exactly why we have to stand strong and make sure they don’t get the chance.

At some point, people will get tired of living in fear and living in a bubble, and they’ll say screw it, just like they had been doing, and they’ll go back to living their lives again, and maybe they’ll get the flu along the way.
