It’s ALL about the money (and power), honey.

Yes…, it’s all about the money (and power), honey…, and a rich man’s jokes are always funny.

And it’s all about the priviledged leftist elites gaining more control over our lives, while they live above the law.  Exhibit A would be democrat speaker of the house, Nancy Pelosi.

In this case, the China virus is the vehicle being used by various global, corporate, and government entities to either gain more money, more power, or both.

It all seems quite clear.

And let’s be very clear…, the safety of the American people is not the real concern here.

Let’s examine the circumstances surrounding a drug called hydroxychloroquine.

aafrica 1

Hollie McKay of Fox News reports, “It has become one of the most controversial words [one of the most controversial names actually] in the world: hydroxychloroquine.”

“For several weeks, the primarily anti-malaria drug has been touted by President Trump and others as a vital aid in treating those suffering from coronavirus, [although] there is not yet a Food and Drug Administration-approved treatment.”

Ah, yes…, the good old FDA.

No political or monetary undercurrents swaying that arm of “the swamp!”

“So, is there any possible correlation between countries where the drug is routinely administered due to high malaria rates and lower cases of COVID-19? It’s too early to tell, medical professionals say, but it’s part of the investigation process.”

I guess some doctors and scientists are just better at putting two and two together than others.

‘“If you look [at the] countries where malaria is more prevalent and countries where COVID-19 infections are prevalent, you will find a striking difference. This correlation needs to be explored further as this is not just a mere coincidence,’ Dr. David Nazarian, a Beverly Hills-based physician, diplomate at the American Board of Internal Medicine and founder of My Concierge MD, told Fox News.”

I’m sure an effort to discredit Dr. Nazarian has already been launched.

And, fine…, go ahead and explore it all you want, but in the meantime why not utilize this safe drug that seems to have produced positive results?

“The drug initially burgeoned on the scene with an FDA thumbs-up in 1955 [that’s 65 years ago] and has been used as a proven remedy in the treatment of malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.”

People have been using this drug safely for 65 years!

But now, all of a sudden, the left, and their cadre of doctors and “experts,” and the liberal propaganda, fake news media are calling the drug “dangerous,” and even saying it should be banned from use.

Why would that be?

You have to ask yourself, why would they be torpedoing this drug that has been used safely for 65 years?

65 years!!!

“After a very small preliminary study conducted in France in the early weeks of COVID-19, Trump and other physicians pinned it as an aid in preventing the virus’ cells from entering the body’s cells, thus possibly helping clear the infection sooner.”

“Under Trump’s urging, the federal agency passed an emergency order last month, enabling doctors to administer hydroxychloroquine, which goes under the brand name Plaquenil, to coronavirus patients where they deemed appropriate, in practice referred to as ‘off-label prescribing.’”

“While much data is missing from the global coronavirus pie, given the lack of testing and in many cases government accountability to present accurate facts and figures, some science professionals have drawn elemental summations that while countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom and swaths of Europe have been battered by the virus, places with high malaria incidences have not — at least not yet.”

“Malaria, an infectious disease that impacts both animals and humans, takes root mostly in the tropical and sub-Saharan pockets of the planet.  The continent of Africa is by far the most impacted.”

“In its most recent malaria assessment, released in December, the World Health Organization points to Africa as having endured some 93 percent, or 213 million of all the 228 million cases documented in 2018.”

“Specifically, 19 countries ferry 98 percent of the world’s malaria onus — all located in Sub-Sahara Africa and India. Six countries accounted for over half of all malaria infections globally: Nigeria at 25 percent, the Democratic Republic of Congo at 12 percent, Uganda at 3 percent, and Mozambique, Niger and Cote de’ Ivoire all at 4 percent. According to the World Atlas, the other plagued places include Pakistan, Ethiopia, Malawi and Niger.”

“So, where do these nations lie when it comes to coronavirus rates? Here are the numbers of coronavirus cases recorded in these countries so far:

Nigeria: 254 cases, 0 deaths (population 191 million)

Democratic Republic of Congo: 0 cases (population 81.3 million)

Uganda: 52 cases, 0 deaths (population 43 million)

Mozambique: 17 cases, 0 deaths (population 29.7 million)

Cote de’ Ivoire: 0 cases (population 24.3 million)

Ethiopia: 55 cases, 2 deaths (population 105 million)

Malawi: 8 cases, 1 death (population 18.6 million)

Niger: 278 cases, 11 deaths (population 21.5 million)

Pakistan: 4,194 cases, 60 deaths (population 197 million)

India: 5,480 cases, 164 deaths (population 1.3 billion)”

“Nazarian pointed out that the confirmed infection of coronavirus in these countries is around 0.1 percent.”

These numbers were as of April 8, 2020.

“Critics have been quick to opine, however, that Trump is hawking a medicine for coronavirus victims without science-stamped ‘conclusions’ pertaining to its effectiveness or safety as a treatment for the novel pathogen.”

‘“If someone thought the drug was protective against transmission, they might take fewer precautions, and the risks to others might then paradoxically increase,’ cautioned Dr. Stanley Weiss, a professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. ‘This is a well-known concern in vaccine trials, where behavior change and potential risks need to be carefully weighed against efficacy.’”

Wow…, that’s pretty weak, Dr. Weiss.  Can’t you do better than that?

“Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has cautioned that hydroxychloroquine is far from being a ‘knockout drug’ and the American Medical Association, the American Pharmacy Association and the American Society of Health-System Pharmacy have also remained wary — even issuing a joint letter warning doctors about prescribing it for the purpose of fending off the coronavirus.”

I don’t think anyone has claimed it was a “knockout drug,” Fauci.

I don’t think there ever will be a “knockout drug” for the China virus, nor does anyone else…, so, why even go there?

aafrica 2

“Moreover, Dr. Attila Hertelendy, a professor in emergency and disaster management at Georgetown University, underscored that while there is some preliminary evidence from in-vitro studies that suggest the combo could inhibit coronavirus activity, ‘there is scant empirical evidence to support using antimalarials as an effective and safe treatment for the masses.’”

Yes, we know Doc…, there is “there is scant empirical evidence” to support most of the things all of you “experts” have been recommending.

aafrica 8

“When pressed about the dangers, Trump has bluntly responded, ‘I’m not a doctor, but I have common sense.’”

aafrica 10

Like I said earlier, “I guess some doctors and scientists [and presidents] are just better at putting two and two together than others.

aafrica 5

‘“Hydroxychloroquine is a relatively well-tolerated medicine that has been around for many years, and most people tolerate it without any side effects,’ Nazarian said.”

And that is the truth…, but the truth can be suppressed and misrepresented and ignored to the point that it is not perceived as the truth, at least by by some, any longer.

Linda Nordling for the Sciencemag.org website, points out that, “Although Africa reported its millionth official COVID-19 case last week, it seems to have weathered the pandemic relatively well so far, with fewer than one confirmed case for every thousand people and just 23,000 deaths so far. Yet several antibody surveys suggest far more Africans have been infected with the coronavirus—a discrepancy that is puzzling scientists around the continent. ‘We do not have an answer,’ says immunologist Sophie Uyoga at the Kenya Medical Research Institute–Wellcome Trust Research Programme.”

They say they don’t have an answer, but they attempt to account for this situation with every other explanation possible, other than the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine.

“So, what explains the huge gap between antibody data on the one hand and the official case and death counts on the other?”

“Part of the reason may be that Africa misses many more cases than other parts of the world because it has far less testing capacity.”

“Marina Pollán of the Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid, who led Spain’s antibody survey, says Africa’s youthfulness may protect it.”

Mahmoud Elkazzaz, of Damietta University, on researchgate.net, adds that, “[Africa’s] sunshine could protect against coronavirus by boosting vitamin D levels, study finds.”

“They believe vitamin D may help modulate the response of white blood cells to the virus, preventing them from releasing too many inflammatory cytokines – a problem known to afflict patients with severe forms of the disease.”

“We cannot neglect the role of alcoholic beverages, of which its usage is high in European countries [as opposed to Africa], inhibiting the conversion of retinol to retinoic acid [which aids in fighting the disease].”

The FDA’s own website now states, “FDA cautions against use of hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine for COVID-19 outside of the hospital setting or a clinical trial due to risk of heart rhythm problems.”

BUT this, “Does not affect FDA-approved uses for malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis.”

So, it’s perfectly okay for some people to take the drug, but others are at risk, depending on why you’re taking the drug?

The FDA then went further in a June 15, 2020 update, “Based on ongoing analysis and emerging scientific data, FDA has revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) to use hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat COVID-19 in certain hospitalized patients when a clinical trial is unavailable or participation is not feasible. We made this determination based on recent results from a large, randomized clinical trial in hospitalized patients that found these medicines showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death or speeding recovery.”

Then, Sharyl Attkisson, reported that, “Medical journals retract study that claimed hydroxychloroquine is dangerous.”

aafrica 14

“The key study claiming hydroxycholoroquine is dangerous has been retracted by the New England Journal of Medicine and Lancet.”

“The journals say after the study was published, more than 100 scientists took issue with it, and it turns out the data cannot be confirmed.”

“Among other things, the scientists criticized the methodology of the study. They also questioned why the authors refused to identify any of the hospitals that contributed patient data, or even to name the countries where the hospitals are located.”

“The study’s lead author was Dr. Mandeep R. Mehra, a Harvard professor.”

So, is this the kind of credible research that all of these “experts” were calling for?

I guess “credible research” just means research that backs-up your desired narrative, in this case.

It would also not surprise me one bit to find out that Pelosi, Fauci, and all the rest of them were taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure, while at the same time beating The President up over it, and denying it to the rest of us just out of spite to President Trump.

aafrica 13

aafrica 12

Remember the credo of the liberal elite…, “Do as I say, not as I do.”

In the end, it all comes back to money, which just happens to correlate with the democrats desire to keep the virus scam going.

No “cure” can be allowed before the vast amounts of money to be made from a vaccine are realized, and no “cure” can be allowed while we still have a President Donald Trump.

Oh, Howard, you’re such a tool…, and such a fool!

Yes, Howard, you’re such a confused, racist, ignorant, liberal tool.

At least that’s what my anonymous sources tell me!

Hey…, if it works for The Washington Post, CNN, etc….

Yes, I’ve heard Howard Stern, and the cast of aging turds on his show, return to berating people who choose to not wear masks.

amask 4

They label these people as “irresponsible,” “dangerous,” and even as potential murderers!

amask 9

Just because they balk against the foolishness of wearing a mask 24/7.

amask 10

It’s mind-numbing how Howard and his sidekicks can say nothing about how dangerous rioters and looters are, and have been, in the City of New York and around the country, but God forbid some poor person chooses to not wear a stupid mask!

amask 12

The shame!

People can riot, loot, burn, vandalize, attack police officers and others without being arrested…, but don’t you dare refuse to wear a mask…, unless you’re a protester that is!

But it’s not just being a protester…, you have to be the right kind of protester, in their eyes.

Hey, I know!

Maybe what these people who don’t want to wear masks should do is, get some of their friends together, show up and protest the store, loot it, take what they want, and then burn it down!

That would be acceptable behavior in the eyes of these liberal zealots.

Anyway…, let’s get back to Howard.

I know Howard has been hiding in his home, deathly afraid of the coronavirus, for over three months.

And now, he finally has a valid reason to go into hiding!

According to Mike Fleming Jr. for “Deadline.com,” “The war of words between Howard Stern and his former friend (I believe using the word ‘friend’ is stretching it a bit), President Donald Trump, and the president’s son Donald Jr. escalated last weekend when Junior retweeted a conservative missive that the SiriusXM broadcaster appeared in blackface and used the N-word multiple times in a pay-per-view New Year’s Eve special — in 1993.”

amask 1

“Trump Jr. has been jabbing at Stern since the radio host has spoken critically of his father’s slow response to the pandemic [that’s Howard’s opinion], and his polarizing comments in the wake of the George Floyd murder and subsequent protests [that’s also in Howard’s opinion]. Stern in turn has jabbed back.  Then, Trump Jr. retweeted the clip of the performance.”

amask 6

What “polarizing comments?”

All of the comments I’ve heard from The President have been completely appropriate.  President Trump called the Floyd video “hard to watch” and “a disgrace.”  He has called for equal justice under the law and fair treatment by the police.  He also said, “We can’t let what happened to George Floyd happen again.”

amask 13

“Polarizing?”

I guess what Mr. Fleming must be referring to as “polarizing” would be President Trump’s desire to avoid these cities from being vandalized, looted and burned.

“Polarizing,” only, I guess, in the sense that you have Pro-America people on one side and Anti-America people on the other.

“The clip [of Howard Stern using the “N” word] was first posted by filmmaker Tariq Nasheed, and it was interspersed with Stern’s recent appearance on ‘The View,’ where he claimed during the appearance that he’d never used the racial slur.”

amask 2

amask 3

You have obviously intentionally “misremembered” this , Howard.

“In the clip, Stern was reportedly playing the part of Ted Danson, with Sherman Hemsley playing Whoopi Goldberg, Danson’s girlfriend at the time. It was picked up by the unabashedly pro-Trump newspaper New York Post.”

Now, honestly…, do we ever hear the New York Times or The Washington Post defined as “unabashedly” anti-Trump newspapers?

No.

Just sayin’.

“Stern addressed the retroactive controversy this morning on his show. He expressed some regret for lampooning Goldberg and Danson’s decision to dress in blackface for a Friar’s Club roast, but said that he has evolved. He charged that the Trumps have not.”

amask 5

Oh, so, Howard has “evolved,” and along with his evolution he has gained the wisdom to pass judgement on others as to their level of racial evolution.

Does anybody else the level of this pompous ass’ hypocrisy?

Howard goes on to say, ‘“Over the years, I did change the show. A lot of people who did like that humor, where I was completely pulling my pants off, those people are pissed off at me now. They think I’m a sellout and I’m not doing a good show anymore.’”

And those people would be right.

You have become a liberal “sellout,” and your show really isn’t very good anymore…, at least the shows you bother to actually be there a couple times a week.

amask 7

‘“Attacking me during the coronavirus and Black Lives Matter is absolutely f***ing crazy, concentrating on me.’”

I’m sure you think it is, Howard.

You know what they say about people who live in glass houses, don’t you?

‘“You want to concentrate on me and bully me, and expose me, with all the TV shows I’ve done?”

Oh, so, just because you’ve done a lot of shows, that somehow makes any criticism of you unjustified?

I’ve heard you freely throw around words like “racist and “liar” where The President is concerned.

Well…, right back at ya big guy!

How fast do you think all of your “Hollywood friends” are running away from you at the moment?

We should probably use the term “ran away” at this point, because it’s already a done deal.

‘“I paid a fortune to fix me, it ain’t easy,’ Stern continued.”

Some would even suggest that you may need to spend a little more money in this area.

amask 8

“Said longtime radio partner Robin Quivers: ‘I have long been a proponent of free speech…’”

“Free” meaning speech that you agree with, obviously.

Yes…, we all wish we could be as enlightened as you and Howard, Ms. Quivers.

Please let me remind you that your idea of “entertainment” includes watching one of your staff Neanderthals sip wine through his a$$hole!

You and your crew also likes listening to “Fartman” expel gas on your show, while you joke about the Columbine students after their nightmare, and refer to one of your usual contacts as Gary “the retard.”

And you perceive yourselves as being enlightened and the rest of us as clueless hillbillies?

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!

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.”

“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.

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

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

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

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

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

adefact 12

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

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.”

“[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.

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.
