The latest China virus propaganda, courtesy of Esquire Magazine.

According to Jack Holmes of Esquire magazine, “The Hot New Conservative Talking Point on COVID-19 Is Extremely Wrong.”

Is it?

Is it really, Jack?

Is it really “extremely wrong?”

“The weekend’s big talking point for people more concerned with propping up the president’s campaign than grappling with reality was that a new CDC report found 94 percent of people who have been recorded as dying from COVID-19 have also had other causes of death listed.”

I’m not sure exactly how this can be viewed as, “propping up the president’s campaign,” unless exposing the truth about the China virus accomplishes this.

And you, Mr. Holmes, and your liberal friends, seem to be the ones “grappling with reality.”

Well, I guess you’re not really “grappling…,” it’s more like intentionally twisting reality.

“The thinking from some exceptionally large brains in the conservative media was that this meant only six percent of the recorded COVID deaths are actually deaths due to COVID, so that a big chunk of the 183,000 recorded deaths in the U.S. somehow shouldn’t count.”

Well, I gotta tell you, Jack…, 100% minus 94% does leave us with 6%, now doesn’t it?

And, these “large brained” people you speak of are not implying that the China virus had nothing to do with the deaths of the 94%…, they’re just correctly pointing out that only 6%, or 10,980 people died solely from the virus, with no underlying conditions, which would be about .0033% of the US population.

Even the entire 183,000 number is only .0555% of the US population.

Remember that .5 would represent one half of 1 percent.

Again, who do you feel is “grappling with reality,” Mr. Holmes?

Comparatively, in 2020, an estimated 606,520 people will die of cancer in the United States.

That’s 3 times the COVID related number, and 55 times the COVID only number.

And, the number of people who die from heart disease are pretty similar to the cancer numbers.

Holmes continues by saying, “This hasn’t yet spread as widely yet as some other right-wing tropes [please note that ‘trope’ is new liberal buzzword, meaning a ‘figurative idea’], but these days, you have to take it all seriously—and nip it in the bud early.”

Yes, we know Jack…, you gotta nip those nasty facts in the bud early, and put the proper liberal spin on them as soon as possible!

“It’s understandable that the president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic.”

Now wait one darn minute there, Jack.

Who says, “The president’s partisans would prefer not to confront his actual record on the pandemic?”

I mean bsides you, of course?

Most people, who support The President, which would include me, feel he has done a good job dealing with the pandemic. It is the democrat governors and democrat mayors who have mishandled the handling of the China virus in my opinion, while Biden condemned President Trump’s early flight restrictions from China, and Pelosi and DeBlasio encouraged their constituents to ignore the virus and go out and have a good time.  You know, your friends, Jack.

Mr. Holmes then goes on to say, “Much like he’d [The President would] rather dwell on—and encourage—the unrest in the nation’s streets.”

I’m not sure where this bit of liberal propaganda BS came from, but it does give us clearer view as to where you’re coming from, Jack, if indeed we needed a clearer view.

It’s Trump’s fault!

Yes, my friends…, if anything, and I mean if ANYTHING happens that isn’t good, it’s President Trump’s fault…, and NOTHING he does is allowed to even be considered good.

I’m really getting bored with this liberal blame game that seems to be on a never-ending loop.

Can we just assume that President Trump is to blame for everything from now on so you liberals can just shut up?

I mean, your litany of lame excuses and shifting of all of the blame from yourselves onto President Trump is so disingenuous, very tiresome, and quite sickening as well.

But remember, President Trump has only been in politics the last 3½ years.

So, racism wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Social justice wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Police brutality wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

Crime rates, shootings and murders weren’t an issue in any of our big cities prior to 2017?

Criminal justice reforms weren’t an issue prior to 2017?

Economic opportunity in depressed areas of our country and our cities wasn’t an issue prior to 2017?

In fact, these were all existing issues prior to 2017.

These have all been existing issues prior to 2017…, AND FOR THE LAST 50 YEARS!

The fact is, President Trump has done more to address these issues in the last 3½ years than had been done in the prior 50 years!

And I’m talking about actual positive actions…, not just lip service or promises.

You don’t believe me?

Let’s take a look at just a few of President Trump’s accomplishments.

 

Our economy, under President Trump’s direction, saw historic lows for African American unemployment and African American youth unemployment, as well as historic low unemployment rates for Latinos, Asians, and Women.

 

Nearly 8 million Americans have been lifted off of food stamps.  Indeed, the latest data from the Department of Agriculture shows that 7.7 million fewer Americans receive food stamps now than did when Trump entered the White House.

 

The poverty rate has fallen to its lowest level in nearly two decades, according to new data released by the U.S. Census Bureau.

 

The First Step Act was promoted and signed into law by President Trump. This law shortens mandatory minimum sentences for nonviolent drug offenses. It also eases a federal “three strikes” rule, which currently imposes a life sentence for three or more convictions, and issues a 25-year sentence instead. Most consequentially, it expands the “drug safety-valve,” which would give judges more discretion to deviate from mandatory minimums when sentencing for nonviolent drug offenses.

Beyond sentencing reform, the First Step Act includes provisions that will improve conditions for current prisoners and address several laws that increased racial disparities in the federal prison system.

“We’re all better off when former inmates can receive and re-enter society as law-abiding, productive citizens,” Trump said in remarks endorsing the bill. “And, thanks to our booming economy, they now have a chance at more opportunities than they’ve ever had before.”

 

Opportunity Zones were created under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and signed into law by President Trump.  The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA,) known for creating Opportunity Zones, is often celebrated for its potential to move billions of dollars into low-income communities. However, there remains an open question as to whether this program will ultimately serve to add value, or extract values, from these communities.  Opportunity Zones (OZs) are defined as “economically-distressed communities where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment.” First conceived in April of 2018, OZ plans are now in place for communities in all 50 states this year.

 

President Trump signed a bill that will permanently provide more than $250 million a year to the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), along with dozens of other institutions that serve large shares of minority students.  “When I took office, I promised to fight for HBCUs, and my administration continues to deliver,” Trump said. “A few months ago, funding for HBCUs was in jeopardy. But the White House and Congress came together and reached a historic agreement.”

 

H.R.1927: African American Civil Rights Network Act of 2017.  This act recognizes the importance of the African American civil rights movement and those who made sacrifices for it. It authorizes the National Park Service to create a US Civil Rights Network, tying together relevant operations within the Service, that will be tasked with coordinating and facilitating projects to commemorate the history of that movement. The Network will operate for seven years, tending to relevant events and historical sites and developing and disseminating new educational materials on the issue.

 

H.R.1242: 400 Years of African-American History Commission Act.  This bill commemorates the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first Africans in the English colonies in Virginia in 1619. It creates a 15-member commission, composed of government officials, members of civic societies, and historians, to be appointed within 120 days. The commission will plan, develop, and carry out activities recognizing and highlighting African-American history since that point in time, and it will be authorized to provide grants of up to $20,000 to support related activities at all levels.

 

H.R.267: Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historical Park Act of 2017.  In 1992, the federal government recognized several sites associated with the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., as a collective national historic site. This bill adds one building, the former headquarters of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference that King co-founded, and upgrades the collective site to national park status—the first such entity in Georgia.

 

Presidential Proclamation 115: To Take Certain Actions under the African Growth and Opportunity Act and for Other Purposes.  This proclamation most significantly reverses Obama-era decisions to deny the African nations of Gambia and Swaziland duty-free trade access to American markets under the act named in the proclamation’s title. That access is contingent on maintaining or improving political freedoms and human rights standards.

 

H.R.2989: Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission Act.  This bill recognizes Douglass’s exceptional rise from slavery to the forefront of the American civil rights movement, as well as his vital role in abolitionism, contributions to the Union in the Civil War, and service in national government. It affirms that all Americans would benefit from learning more about and following the examples laid out by Douglass. The act creates a commission to plan and carry out federal activities to commemorate the 200th anniversary of his 1818 birth.

 

And there has never been a bigger supporter of the safety of American citizens, law enforcement, and our first responders, in The White House, than President Trump.  The lawlessness we see in our large, liberal, cities is a result of opposition to President Trump’s policies, not because of them.

Regarding New York City, specifically, Julia Musto of Fox News reports that, “Dan Bongino blasts liberal mayors blaming COVID-19 and Trump for violence: ‘This is pathetic.’”

“Liberal mayors’ attempts to blame violence over the Fourth of July weekend on the coronavirus and the Trump administration is ‘grotesque and pathetic,’ former NYPD officer and Secret Service agent Dan Bongino said Tuesday.”

“In an interview on ‘Fox & Friends,’ Bongino specifically called out Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.”

“The Democrat-run cities both saw spikes in violent crime over the holiday weekend. According to the Chicago Police Department, there were 87 people shot and 17 killed from July 2 to July 5. There were at least 44 shooting incidents and 10 dead in New York City as the Big Apple saw its surge in violence continue.”

‘“I heard Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago also trying to pin this on [President] Donald Trump somehow. How was this Donald Trump? And again, it was racist, of course. Everything is racist. God forbid you call out the fact that young Black children are being shot in the head,’ he remarked.”

‘“It’s not President Trump that did this. It’s that guy in City Hall, Bill de Blasio — your Communist mayor who has failed you and — as I said on this program and others, repeatedly for years now — people will die because of the arguments going on over public safety,’ Bongino concluded. ‘And, tragically, I was correct.’”

So, after decades upon decades of inaction and ineffectiveness by the “do nothing” political establishment, democrats and republicans, we are now told that all of these problems are President Trump’s fault, and that all of these politicians who have overseen these problems for decades and decades now suddenly have all the answers.

New York City is an absolute disgrace.

The song about New York City goes, “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.”

The question is, who really wants to “make it there” anymore?

A state and a city being run by irresponsible, liberal, socialist, fools, tends to encourage all of those with any brains to migrate elsewhere.

acops 11

Besides all of the ill-conceived, liberal, social, educational and administrative policies…, New York City residents pay dearly for the privilege of living there.

New Yorkers, of course, start out by paying federal income tax, most in the 12% to 22% range, or an average of 17%.

Next, we go to the state income tax.  Most pay in the 6.2% to 6.5%, or an average of 6.35%.

Then we have New York City income tax, which only a few cities in America have.  The New York City income tax rate ranges from 3.1% to 3.9%, or an average of 3.5%.

So, that give us a combined average income tax rate of 26.85%.

Keep in mind that states like Texas and Florida have NO state or local income taxes!

So, we’re at 26.85% so far.

But let’s not forget property tax!

The property tax rate is 20.4%!  And even if you’re not a property owner, you are indirectly paying that rate through your rent for the property owner.

And last, but not least, we have the sales tax.

New York City has a sales tax of 8.875%!

Now that’s a lot of tax!

AND YET, NEW YORK STATE AND NEW YORK CITY ARE TENS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN DEBT!

The actual debt for New York City is $91.56 billion!

New York State’s debt is close to $150 billion!

Unbelievable.

Like I SAID EARLIER…, A state and a city being run by irresponsible, liberal fools.

acops 13

And now they (“they” meaning the New York State liberals, the New York City liberals, and the federal House and Senate democrats) want all of the rest of us to bail out these liberal cesspools via disguised money in the next coronavirus relief bill.

These democrat politicians just have no shame.

Anyway, so, what do the people of New York City get for all of that tax money?

They get a mayor, Bill de Blasio, who is a hot mess, and his administration which is one big hot mess as well.

The latest example of disgusting liberal behavior was exhibited by the New York City Health Commissioner, Dr. Oxiris Barbot.

acops 5

And what a gem she is!

According to Fox News, via a story originally published in the New York Post, “The New York police sergeants union described city health commissioner Dr. Oxiris Barbot as a ‘b—-‘ Wednesday in response to revelations that she told an NYPD official she didn’t give ‘two rats a$$es’ about cops getting safety masks.”

Oh, how wonderful!

This is coming from a person who was handpicked by Mayor de Blasio, to be the city’s health commissioner…, offering her advice and wisdom to the 8.4 million people who live in New York City.

She obviously represents the de Blasio administration’s feelings towards police officers, and the NYPD overall, quite well.

‘“Truth is this b—- has blood on her hands but why should anyone be surprised the NYPD has suffered under de Blasio since he became Mayor,’ the Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) tweeted in response to The Post’s exclusive story revealing Barbot’s decision.”

“The health commissioner said in a mid-March phone conversation with NYPD Chief of Department Terence Monahan, ‘I don’t give two rats’ a$$es about your cops,’ in response to the mask request, sources said.”

‘“I need them for others,’ Barbot said.”

In other words, Cops are expendable and are dead last on her list of considerations.

“Instead of the 500,000 masks Monahan sought to help protect his force, Barbot said she could only cough up 50,000, according to sources.”

“Shortly after the SBA’s tweet, the union’s president, Edward Mullins, sent a statement calling for Barbot’s ouster.”

Your disdain for New York’s finest is obvious Dr. Barbot.

Your lack of knowledge pertaining to the coronavirus is quite obvious as well.

Your lack of any respect or consideration for your city’s police force is both sad and pathetic.

At least the rest of us can all take comfort in knowing you live in the city you deserve.

“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 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’.

I think we should start a democrat “bucket challenge!”

You know…, similar to the ice bucket challenge that was a big thing on social media the last couple of years.

53601157.jpg

By definition, “the ice bucket challenge is an activity involving the dumping of a bucket of ice and water over a person’s head, either by another person or self-administered, to promote awareness of a certain cause or issue.”

“The challenge encourages nominated participants to be filmed having a bucket of ice water poured on their heads and then nominating others to do the same.”

“A common stipulation is that nominated participants have 24 hours to comply with the challenge or forfeit by way of a charitable financial donation.”

For all of the democrats out there who think it’s okay to belittle and demonize our police officers, our immigration officers (ICE) and our border patrol officers, I challenge you to experience “the bucket!”

ice 8

If you’re a democrat who has been a driving force or an accomplice in the public humiliation of many of our police officers, who may have the toughest job in the world by the way…, I challenge you to walk down a street in your community while people are allowed to dump water over your head and laugh at you.

Since these officers were “dumped on” while doing their jobs, perhaps people should be allowed to walk into your offices and douse you while you’re in there doing whatever it is you do?

That sounds fair, doesn’t it?

I mean…, expressing your first amendment rights is expressing your first amendment rights…, right?

Right!

Right off the bat, let’s challenge Mayor Bill De Blasio, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the other three members of her “squad,” presidential candidate Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, along with all of the mayors who have declared their cities to be sanctuary cities, undermining the efforts of federal ICE officers.

Ya…, that would be a good start…, but just a start.
