    The doctors, experts, government administrators, and yes even Pence is doing a good job. This is a good example of public and private partnership. I approve.

    What I don’t approve of is the incompetent snowflake in chief inserting himself, saying stupid chit, and derailing the entire effort. He needs to go golfing and let the team work!

  5. Proud Obamacon says:

    Kudos to our governors and state/local health officials, who are running rings around Orange Moron’s incompetent leadership.

    Kudos to the scientists at the Cleveland Clinic who worked 24/7 for 9 days to create a test that gives results in only 8 hours (instead of 2-3 days)

    All in spite of Orange Moron’s sheer incompetence talking about meaningless Europe travel bans, more tax cuts that won’t help laid off people. Luckily the experts are not afraid to correct him and keep us hopeful.

    Well done.

    #Coronavirus press conference: Good tone; look after the most vulnerable. Very strong leadership; waiving red tape & making assistance available. Very wise to bring in the private sector and remind us to continue interventions with closures and cancellations. Thumbs up

    panic has reached minnesota

    i went shopping this evening

    shelves were empty

  14. Tgca says:


    Shelves are empty by evenings but they are generally restocked so most items are available in early AM. This is what we go through in FL every time a hurricane gets close. I was in two stores tonight and things like toilet paper, hand sanitizer were gone but plenty of paper towels, water, and bottles of alcohol that were scarce earlier in the week.

    The secret is to go daily and get more and more items. I’m fully stocked on food, water, batteries for at least 2 months.

  15. PresidentPaul! says:

    The West is not adequately taking social distancing or “lockdown” seriously.

    Covid is growing far to quickly in the USA because of it hence the system will get overloaded at this rate.

  16. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Despite the partisan rancour, looks like the President and Congress were able to come to a bipartisan agreement:

    “I fully support H.R. 6201: Families First CoronaVirus Response Act, which will be voted on in the House this evening. This Bill will follow my direction for free CoronaVirus tests, and paid sick leave for our impacted American workers. I have directed. the Secretary of the Treasury and the Secretary of Labor to issue regulations that will provide flexibility so that in no way will Small Businesses be hurt. I encourage all Republicans and Democrats to come together and VOTE YES! I will always put the health and well-being of American families FIRST. Look forward to signing the final Bill, ASAP!.”

    “In a 363-40 vote early Saturday, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a coronavirus response package negotiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. All House Democrats supported the plan while 40 Republicans opposed it. Rep. Justin Amash, an independent from Michigan who is a former Republican, voted “present.””

  17. PresidentPaul! says:

    This is probably the largest economic event of our lifetimes starting to play out.

  18. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    There are a lot of labs around the world working on a treatment; about a dozen drugs are currently being tested or in development. My hunch is by the end of the year there may a breakthrough. There are already clinical trials going on of drugs with names like favilavir, Ifenprodil, Leronlimab, Brilacidin, plus several possible vaccines.

  19. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “SAN DIEGO — Doctors at Rady Children’s Hospital want to reassure parents there is no active transmission of coronavirus among children at this time.

    They have been taking 300 samples from children with really bad colds and all of the tests came back negative.

    Doctors at the pediatric hospital also say data from China shows children with coronavirus do not get seriously ill.”

  20. PresidentPaul! says:

    US hospitals set for meltdown of the system

    Depending on how bad the crisis gets, the sick could find themselves waiting on stretchers in emergency room hallways for hospital beds to open up, or could be required to share rooms with others infected. Some doctors fear hospitals could become so overwhelmed that they could be forced to ration medical care.

    “This is going to be a fairly tremendous strain on our health system,” warned Dr. William Jaquis, president of the American College of Emergency Physicians.

    The United States is still facing an active flu season, and many hospitals are already running at capacity caring for those patients. The new virus will only add to that burden, said Dr. Bruce Ribner an infectious-disease specialist at Emory University’s medical school.

  21. Tina says:

    What a sheiot fest the Biden virtual meetings are.. They cover Biden up while he walks off camera

  22. jason says:

    Bunu, be very careful posting.

    The data is very strong that the virus could be spread through the Internet, and for some reasons Paulbots are even more vulnerable.

    You should self-quarantine yourself from the Internet until it is safe.

    Experts say that could take 2 years, so better be safe than sorry.

  23. jason says:

    You can’t make this sh-t up…

    “CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta had a really earth shattering report today.

    “Source: Trump is concerned about coming into contact with people infected with coronavirus,” his report claimed from one source”

    March 13, 2020 at 8:12 pm

    Market did drop when the chosen one started speaking.

    Market rebounded when the experts spoke.”

    I am glad Proud Obamacommunist thinks the CEOs of WM, CVS, Target etc. are “experts”.

    Of course, these companies will be run by the Central Kommittee when the Marxists take over.

  25. jason says:

    There were no “experts” talking at the presser, except Fauci to answer questions.

    The market went up 2000 points because it like what Trump had to say, and the great idea of using these companies to help with the testing, and the involvement of some big pharmaceuticals.

    Obamacommunist is upset Trump exhibits great leadership while Biden can’t put a sentence together while he runs for the Senate.

  26. jason says:

    I would not have voted for the House bill, and Trump is way too eager to sign.

    It stinks of big government all the way, and Rs are cowed and afraid to be portrayed as being in the way of “helping people”.

    McConnell said it best when he said “this is an ideological wish list by the Dems”

    Contrary to the Dem view that we “shouldn’t be helping corporations such as the cruise, hotel and airline industry” it is exactly the opposite. These are the people providing the jobs.

    “Paid sick leave” is pandering of the worst kind. Someone has to pay for it, and it does nothing for anybody once the benefit is over.

    Protecting jobs is what helps in the long run.

  27. jason says:


    Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won the Northern Mariana Islands Democratic caucuses Saturday.

  28. jason says:

    You have to love the MSM


    “Trump is concerned about coming into contact with people infected with coronavirus,”


    “Despite warnings about hand washing and avoiding contact with others, Trump was still shaking hands with people during his coronavirus press conference in the Rose Garden.”

  29. Bitterlsw says:

    I think Trump has handled the crisis well. That will not gain him many votes. The Dems will try to make it cost him votes.

  30. Phil says:

    That was a wonderful performance by Joe at his virtual event yesterday. This man inspires all of us with his commanding demeanor. The kind of commanding figure that puts all of us at ease during a crisis. Rock solid I say.

    I can see why the guys at the bulwark are excited to join his team.

  31. Cash Cow TM says:

    Fast forward to August, 2020….

    News reports galore about the sun causing skin cancer and the higher risk during the hot summer.

    They report how many HUNDREDS of people are expected to get skin cancer this year due to high temps and exposure to the sun.

    A national emergency is declared where it is urged that nobody go outside during daylight hours for 4 weeks of August. All baseball games are cancelled, unless the game is played in a domed stadium. Normal beach town vacation areas are now ghost towns…

    Umbrella sales soar…but still a shortage…
    people who are without umbrellas to shield them from the sun are carrying large sheets of cardboard over their heads when they must walk outside…

    Many complain about the lack of skin cancer testing kits….Trump is blamed for this…

    In Congress, the Dems get behind a bill sponsored by “The Squad” for a massive program to air condition the entire outside of the U.S….
    Some Rino Rs say they would compromise and consider voting to air conditioning only all federal parks and public lands…

    Another bill inn moving in Congress to provide a free 55 gallon drum of SP65 sunscreen lotion to all persons in America who have incomes below $40,000 per year. When empty, the 55 gallon drums could be used to put your children in to protect them when you roll them down the sidewalk when you take your kids outside for a walk. Amendments are offered by Dems to also give free sunscreen to illegals and tourists from other countries and hairless cats.

    To visit neighbors during the day, people are buying up large quantities of toilet paper to wrap themselves in while they run next door during daylight hours….

    Surging sales of low tunnels that allow people to use when they go outside during the day to get the mail from the mailbox….

  32. Cash Cow TM says:

    I am confused.

    At the press conference yesterday, the reporter asked Trump if he had bee tested or was going to get tested.

    Trump said no to both. Said he is showing no symptoms. His doctors said no test necessary.

    Trump and others say that not everyone should rush out and get tested. Only get tested if your doctor says you should get tested because you are showing symptoms or have been in contact with someone infected etc.

    THEN later they asked again if Trump is going to get tested and he said “yes, and probably very soon”?

  33. BayernFan says:

    he’s not gonna get tested while test kits are in demand. when the new better ones come next week he’ll get tested. not complicated.

    media truly are scum of the earth.

  34. Phil says:

    Schumer held a press conference this morning. Announces that “despite Trump’s lack of leadership, he and Nanci Pelosi are leading the way in leading us through this crisis”


    The Democrats are making a huge mistake here with that kind of rhetoric during this time.

    It won’t fly.

  35. Messy says:

    Here’s some fun news:

    3. That shows that approximately 54% think trump’s doing a crummy job. I stand with them.

  37. Tina says:

    Phil, did you see China Biden’s plan?

    He plagiarized trump and those points have all been implemented,

    CDC cannot handle the testing. They are not a testing lab.

  38. MichiganGuy says:

    Twitter loses it over revelation Barack Obama follows porn star Sara Jay
    Looks like Trump isn’t the only one who likes porn stars.

  39. CG says:

    “I took the test and the results were quite beautiful. Just tremendous, beautiful results. Everything in the results was positive, very very positive. The people who read the results told me I probably had the most positive results out of anyone who took the test,”

  40. Tina says:

    Glad that the state department read the riot act to the Commie Chinese over causing the virus.

    The Commies say are military planted the virus.

    They sound like jebots with their latest conspiracies.

  41. Tina says:


    Trump announces a travel ban on England and Ireland.

  42. VictrC says:

    Today’s press conference was excellent. Again reassuring the American people about how the govt and private sector are coming together to help, as well as assuring the financial markets that steps are being put in place to help Americans in need, and the economy.

    Specifically, I was impressed by the way that the President handled all the “gotcha” questions from the media. (BTW, this is a national emergency, can the media, for once, stop with the gotcha questions. Things change on a daily basis, they have too understand that).

    Trump was criticized for shaking hands. Yes, this is what worries the media. Instead of finding an excuses, he told the truth. Look, I’m used to it, its a natural reaction, I’m changing my habits and others should too, but sometimes you forget. GOOD FOR HIM.

    When is the media going to stop trying to find negatives, and start looking for positives to reassure Americans.

  43. Tina says:

    The same media is mad though. The Wh took the temperatures of each press member entering the Wh.

    One was denied entry for having a high temperature (taken 3 times).

  44. VictrC says:

    Tina, yes, they all had a fit and asked if members on teh stage had their temperature taken very sarcastically. The joke was on them because each member on the stage also had their temperature taken.

    It’s like the press obsession with Trump and Pence taking a test. I think its because they want them to say they took a test so the press can report that Trump has access to a test, but Americans dont.

    People are seeing the true colors of the press during this crisis, and its not good.

  45. lisab says:

    tomorrow’s debate will be 4 minutes long

    with sanders getting the first and last question

  46. lisab says:

    what of Biden speaking of using biofuel to power steamships?

  47. VictrC says:

    Over under on how much they bash Trump tomorrow.

    The problem for Biden is he has a record in handling a widespread virus and its awful. The swine flu response under him has a 12,000 dead figure attached to it. That’s a fact. So he’s open to criticism if he criticizes this adminstration.

    Sanders has a problem. Look at the death total in socialized medicine countries. Look how over run the systems are there. Look at the fact that they are making care decisions based on “survivability.” Rationed care is not working in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, and lord knows in the ultimate Socialist country, China.

  48. Phil says:

    Well, Vic, No question Sanders has a problem with the record of socialist countries and their handling of the virus (or anything else for that matter). Given the fact that he is already toast, I don’t think it matters much at all.

  49. lisab says:

    does anyone else notice that

    corona is an anagram of racoon

    as in racoon city?

    ruh roh

  50. jason says:

    I think Trump has handled the crisis well. That will not gain him many votes. The Dems will try to make it cost him votes.”

    Well, like you often say, people see what they want to see. I think he has done a great job too.
    However, I don’t like the paid sick leave thing though, they will never be able to get rid of it even if announced as “temporary”, just one more burden on business and one more entitlement.

    Let’s face it, Trump could find the cure for cancer tomorrow and CNN, MSNBC and the Never Trumpers would accuse him of causing climate Armageddon by keeping too many people alive.

  51. jason says:

    “Man Who OD’d in Hotel Room With Andrew Gillum Is a Well-Known Gay Escort”

    Gillum says he wasn’t in the room to do drugs, so maybe he is telling the truth.

  52. VictrC says:

    You know, its easy to pile on but, you know what, these times give us perspective.Instead of bashing him I just hope he gets the help he needs to overcome his addictions.

  53. Phil says:

    Yep. Paid sick leave will be a huge burden on small businesses. It’s like no Democrat has ever run a small business (probably true). My dad ran a small town car dealership. I think he had a max of 25 employees. That would be a pretty good expense for him but imagine some small business with only two or three employees. They don’t have much of a bottom line to begin with.

  54. Tina says:

    Seems like the senate will load other stuff up.

    Probably, they should have done a payroll tax holiday.

  55. Tina says:

    · 19h
    In a bizarre, meandering livestream put on by Joe Biden’s campaign today, he forgets what year it is and when, if he doesn’t lose, he would be in office.

    At another point, he seemingly forgets he’s on a live stream and walks out of frame. The feed cuts away to a logo instead.

  56. lisab says:

    well … madison and peter from the bachelor broke up


  57. Scooterboy says:

    Georgia is now postponing the Primary.

  58. Victrc says:

    I suspect all the upcoming primaries will postpone which sets up an interesting dynamic. After restrictions are lifted and life comes back to normal, do they set up a primary day, say at the end of May?

    How does that change the dynamic of the race. What if Bernie destroys Biden tomorrow night, then has two months to hold his virtual town halls to fire up people while Biden wanders off screen and heads for the record player while saying it’s the wrong year?

    This could get interesting

    Btw. Do you see how the shelves in the store are? Get used to that if the far left continued to gain control of the Democratic Party.

  59. PornDodo says:

    You’re great. Learn from you!

  60. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Excuse me for interfering with the panic. This from the epicenter of the U.S. epidemic:

    “Much of news regarding coronavirus is all doom and gloom, but much progress is being made with the virus. Dr. Gordon Cohen, a general surgery specialist in Tacoma, recently joined Seattle’s Morning News to discuss the other side that he and his colleagues are witnessing.

    “One of the intensive care unit doctors that I worked with made a comment that sort of struck me, which is: ‘Where all the patients?’ What we’re seeing on the television and the media is creating this widespread panic and fear, but here we are in the hospitals and the intensive care units are not filling up with patients,” he said.”

  61. John says:

    Not so fast.
    I live in a suburb of Seattle…three more deaths today….positive cases jumped to 642 cases…

  62. Tgca says:


    OMG! That’s awful news LisaB. I can’t believe Madison and Peter from the Bachelor broke up. My eyes are swelling with tears now.

    Does Bitter know yet? I know it was one of his fav shows.

    This could turn out to be much worse than the Coronavirus.

  63. lisab says:

    #66 yup … they have decided to go their separate ways … too many obstacles

  64. Bitterlaw says:

    I am stunned that Madison and Peter broke up. How could a relationship that was based on him making out with dozens of girls fail?

    “Even if there was meth, it was on the floor.” Good grief. What is the excuse for the male sexworker?

    Cenk Uygur
    · Mar 13
    The @AndrewGillum headlines are very misleading. He was not in a seedy motel by himself. He was at high-end hotel with friends for a wedding. They were all intoxicated, as everyone in weddings are. Even if there was meth, it was on the floor. There were at least 3 people in room.

  66. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Cenk Uygur and the Young Turks had a Super Tuesday election meltdown. Making it worse was Uygur only getting 5% in his congressional run. Their election meltdowns are becoming epic.

    Northman trader’s take on the technicals of this S&P fall is a worth a watch.

    Bear markets typically have 3 down legs so this could be the first….or if corona would somehow go away maybe we shoot back up on a massive liquidy worldwide injection (I sincerely doubt the latter!)

  68. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    This is the nightmare that Mattis and John Kelly feared. That a real crisis would happen and Trump would be in charge.

    Where is the testing? Where is the urgency? Even now, Trump’s twitters whines about the stock market and wanting to can the Fed chief. He has no idea how serious it is still.

    And meanwhile the peanut gallery congratulates each other like Hitler’s general in their 1945 bunkers.

  69. PresidentPaul! says:

    The left already lost the election. Bernie is out.

    All you have is demented Joe.

  72. dblaikie says:

    Trumpispetewilson what a inane, post. If you want to be a fear monger than go ahead. First Trump banned travel from China. People like you called him xenophobic. Dr Fucci said it saved lives. When he banned flights from Europe, once again Never Trumpers like you scoffed and derided him. However once again Dr Fucci said it was based on science. I could go on. But instead I would like to make a suggestion to you — why don’t you put your mouth in quarantine for two weeks.

  73. Phil says:

    Insane post about sums it up.

    ‘Moved quickly’: Andrew Cuomo praises President Trump’s coronavirus response
    So, now both democratic Governors of California and New York have praised President Trump’s response. Trolls in here are going to be on suicide watch. LOL

  75. Tina says:

    So Triple Cheeseburger Conway is complaining that trumps personal physician is not an md. Since he is no a md, he is not a doctor, according to triple cheeseburger Conway.

    Cheeseburger failed to realize that a d.o. Is a doctor, like an md.

    This is all due to the truther swan ring the president to,test positive for corona. They are now suggesting that trump is lying about the test.

    These truthers and hoaxers are sick.

  76. Michelle Obama vs the DNC buffet table says:

    Reason for optimism? Interesting read from correspondent who spoke to both sides in DC. Given the rough flu season this year- it is likely COVID has made its way through parts of the country already

  77. jason says:

    Trump wore a hat that said USA on it and the MSM and Dems are offended. I am sure the “we are all Dems” Never Trumpers are too.

  78. jason says:

    Even if there was meth, it was on the floor.”

    Dang, drug dealers rejoice.

    When the police come knocking, put the heroin, crack, and meth on the floor. No problem.

    Make sure it is NOT on coffee table.

  79. jason says:

    But instead I would like to make a suggestion to you — why don’t you put your mouth in quarantine for two weeks.”

    You are putting TrumpisPeteWilson troll’s life at risk, dblaikie.

    You want him to be absolutely safe, so I think through December 31st would guarantee it.

    And remember, same advice I gave Bunu, you don’t want to risk infection through the Internet, so its best not to get online until then.

    Here at HHR, we don’t discriminate against anyone, we are looking out for TrumpisPete and Bunu.

  80. Tina says:

    Some Doctors are reporting that this is the tail end. It originated in November or December here.

    Hopefully, this is true.

    Who among us doesn’t bring an overdosed gay male escort and 3 bags of meth to their friend’s wedding… Amirite fellas?

  82. jason says:

    George Conway gets schooled on what a D.O. is:

    “I’m glad that my 4 years of pre-med reqs, 4 years of med school training, 3 years of residency, 4 years of fellowship, 4 passed board certifications and I’m considered “lesser than” an MD. If you ever show up at our hospitals, please turn around and seek your nearest top 10% MD.”

  83. jason says:

    Who among us doesn’t bring an overdosed gay male escort and 3 bags of meth to their friend’s wedding”

    In fairness to Gillum the gay escort was on the floor too.

  84. jason says:

    I think Cenk’s theory on why meth on the floor is ok is that it might be just growing there on its own.

    If it can be classified as a native species to motel floors you can make the case nobody had to have brought it into the room.

  85. jason says:

    Wolf is closing liquor stores in the Philly area.

    I am sure liquor stores in NY, NJ, and DE are going to love the extra business.

    Disgraceful. Impeach and remove.

    But on the good side- he was not wearing a USA hat

  88. dblaikie says:

    Good thinking Jason. In a Country where most people seem to be coming together these holdover trolls are really sad.

  89. Tina says:

    Does Triple Cheeseburger even work?

    Or does he just appear on cn and n,

    Very alarming that he thinks a d.o. Is not a medical doctor.

  90. jason says:

    He has a full time job as Kellyanne’s husband, who actually does work.

  91. Wes says:

    Trump seems unable to win on covid19. China is the epicenter. Trump bans travel from China. The Left bowls. Europe has a high incidence. Trump bans travel from Europe. The Left howls. Trump works with state governments and doctors to contain the pandemic and find either a treatment or a cure, receiving praise from Gavin Newsom and Andrew Cuomo in the process. The Left claims Trump is doing nothing.

    Hey, if the chattering Left feels Trump is doing nothing, maybe rather than extolling all Trump’s perceived faults on this, they should propose some course of action to deal with it.

  92. Wes says:

    I’m not pretending Trump has handled this perfectly, but he is actually doing something while liberals sit on the sidelines execrating him for doing nothing despite the clear attempts by the Administration to deal with the pandemic.

  93. jason says:

    I am off to stock up on vodka in case Wolf decides to close liquor stores here too.

    I suppose I could drive to MD or WV where the stores are not state owned in an emergency, but MD is 30 miles and WV is almost 80.

  94. jason says:

    If Trump cured cancer and achieved peace in the Middle East the left would attack him for it.

    Curing cancer increases carbon footprint.

    “The Bernie Bros are vowing revenge.

    As the presidential campaign of Sen. Bernie Sanders continues to crash and burn, the socialist’s most hard-core supporters are vowing they will never vote for Joe Biden at the ballot box — even if that means handing Trump a second term.

    “We will never – NEVER boost or support Joe Biden or defend his abysmal record and terrible policy positions,” Henry Williams, executive director of The Gravel Institute, told The Post. “We will tell people, as we always have, to vote their conscience and to make decisions based on the interests of all the world’s oppressed people … I do expect a massive exodus from the Democratic Party.”

  101. Wes says:

    I wouldn’t put too much stock in any impact fringe Bernie Brothers will have on the election, Jason.

    We heard Hillary-supporting women (known colloquially as PUMAs) would deny Obama the 2008 election.

    That didn’t come close to happening.

    Get a grippe, America. The flu is a much bigger threat than coronavirus, for now.

  103. TrumpIsPeteWilson says:

    “Italy on Sunday announced 368 new deaths in the last 24 hours, bringing the total death toll in the country to 1,809, according to Civil Protection Department Chief Angelo Borrelli.

    Speaking at a press conference in Rome, Borrelli went on to reveal that the total number of positive cases registered in Italy reached 24,747 on Sunday, with an increase of 3,590 new cases recorded in the past 24 hours.”

    Italy put into place severe measures a week ago. We haven’t even tried to deal with the underlying issue of spread yet and our testing is a month behind everybody elses.

    The media didn’t cause the stock market to evaporat tens of trillions of dollars of wealth. That was all Trump’s doing by bungling the response in every way possible.


    And to this, Tina will post a thousand ignorant propaganda posts from far-right websites. She has a tiny brain incapable of filtering good information from bad.

    #96. I agree with your comments. Trump is in a no-win position no matter what he does. Trish Reagan insinuated the Coronavirus POTUS attacks by the media & Dems were means to a similar end in which the Russian collusion, impeachment et. al. attacks were launched – to get rid of Trump. She was suspended.

    Tina, Trump was just musing aloud about moving Powell to another position. I wonder if that had anything to do with that rate cut.

  111. lisab says:

    #110 mathematically the british approach might make sense

    a virus spreads exponentially until most people have already had it, so it runs out of victims, so if you just act normally, the virus will just end quickly

    but … three things could make it a mistake

    1.) if everyone gets sick at once, hospitals ca could get overwhelmed. by slowing the virus down through isolation the usa can spread out hospital visits

    2.) a vaccine or treatment could be developed, so going slow might be best

    3.) rhe flu season goes down in april, and usually ends in may
    the usa may just have gotten lucky by being hit in mid-march

  122. Country Dick Montana says:

    Let me get this right. 68 deaths in the US of which 24 are the Life Care Center in Kirkland, WA. 37 are in King County, WA and 42 are in Washington State. So we tank the economy over 26 deaths outside of Washington State. Agent K was right

  123. Country Dick Montana says:

    Also time to suspend the Jones Act so that Cheap American oil can be delivered to those states without pipelines. No sense in helping the Russians or Saudis by purchasing their oil because we have to ship with American flagged vessels.

  124. VictrC says:

    What a pair of pieces of sh*t are Biden and especially Sanders. His first words in a national crisis are to trash the President, then attack the drug companies working hard to find a vaccine.

    Biden can’t even remember what H1N1 virus was, and now he’s extolling his leadership in Ebola and Swine Flu.

    And of course CNN starts by scaring Americans and saying millions are going to die from Coronavirus. F ing liars

  125. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    116. I agree with what lisab said.

    Agree the British approach will eventually result in “herd immunity”, and the fact is the virus now is probably been contracted by millions of people, most of whom will not get sick. There is not a way to stop this happening. Despite a widely available vaccine, we are still losing about 60,000 a year to the flu.

    However, one reason to enact social distance policies in the short term is to slow the spread of the virus so that the medical system does not get immediately overwhelmed. Also summer is approaching which often slows the spread of viruses like coronavirus.

    A critical factor now is to continue to protect vulnerable populations, like the elderly, and those with chronic disease, who need to remain at home in self-quarantine. In Italy the average age death from the virus was 81. I have family in Washington State, we have agreed family members will not visit the elderly family members now for the time being. I delayed a trip I was making to Washington state for several weeks.

    Agree with Anthony Fauci, we may have to be overreactive for the coming weeks, to get a handle on the situation. I don’t share in the doom and gloom, and this is not an end of the world situation, but there are steps we can take now that will protect those most vulnerable.

  138. PresidentPaul! says:

    Steve Mnuchen during his cnbc interview on friday promised “UNLIMITED” liquidity.

    He was telling the truth.

    After the 2008 crisis Ron Paul achieved a partial audit the Fed bill. This shows that the Fed spent millions of dollars in legal bills trying to prevent the American people from knowing of illegal interest free currency swap lines all over the world to bailout the world including all the zombie banks and all the zombie companies.

    The audit showed they did about 15 billion in these interest free loans.

    However, Bloomberg news sued and filed a FOIA thereafter to get more information revealing that was not the entire extent of it.

    It was actually a 29 trillion dollar BAILOUT.

    So when Mnuchen promises UNLIMITED he means hundreds of trillions and if that’s not enough then quadrillions. It doesn’t matter.

  139. PresidentPaul! says:

    Edit: Audit the Fed showed 15 trillion.

    The Bloomberg follow up FOIA to the audit showed 29 trillion.

  140. PresidentPaul! says:

    12% of Bernie voters refused to vote for Hillary and some of them actually voted for Trump to spite her.

    This was about a 1/4 million votes, and it was a lot more than the 70-80k margin of victory Trump had in three states.

    Biden makes 3 mistakes in 13 seconds:

    We should already be sitting down and planning where we’re going to put these temporary hospitals,” he said. “And we can do that. We did that — we’ve been through this before with the coronavirus. We’ve been through this — I mean, excuse me, we’ve been through this before with dealing with the viruses that — the N1H1 virus — as well as what happened in Africa.

    Coronavirus – Swine flu

    N1H1? – H1N1

    “Happened in Africa” – Ebola


    “The Ebola crisis, in my view, exposes the dysfunctionality of the health care system and how poorly prepared we are despite how much money that we spend. And the Ebola crisis is also, I think, exposing the cruelty and the unjustness of our economy today,” he said.

    Ebola – coronavirus

  148. jason says:

    Big Joe, what you have now is panicked selling driven by the MSM. The market will rebound IF no lasting damage is done to the economy, a lot of the money that went out of the stock market was profits from the long bull run, so that money can come back in at anytime.

    If I had cash lying around I would buy now and not worry about catching the low. I am actually trying to sell something to do that.

  149. jason says:

    If you look at the world map, the Southern Hemisphere has a lot fewer cases. That has to be from the warmer weather.

    #153 Jason-
    There definitely has been plenty of panicked selling. Market was already sky high nearing 30,000, high PEs in the S&P, and high debt, so a correction was due and expected.

    There’s little reason to think this is anything other than a temporary dip, and we’ll return to growth. That said, there will be a period of time that will be rough. Earnings reports won’t be pretty this quarter and probably next quarter, beyond that is anyone’s guess.

    I definitely see a U-curve here. The only question is how long do we tread along the bottom of the U. It could be a few months, maybe a year. But once earnings start improving, businesses can function close to normal, and esp. when there’s a vaccine, I expect the markets to rocket upwards. Those buying now will be very very very happy.

    I made large investments into the market in March 2009. March is always when I drop lump sums into our Roths, 529s, reinvest tax refunds, among other financial actions. March 2009 also happened to be the very bottom of the market from the previous bear market. Lucky, of course. Up nearly 500% in a decade and that’s just a broad market ETF. Shows that buying during down times can bring huge rewards later on.

  158. Tgca says:

    I agree that a good portion of Bernie voters will probably either sit out or not support the 2020 Dem nominee. Bernie folks are much younger and radical and hate everything Biden, as well as Hillary and Trump stand for in terms of privilege and capitalism…though Biden and Hillary have moved farther left to appeal to primary voters. Bernie fans see through them and don’t trust either.

    This is different than 2008 PUMA folks which was not necessarily so radical as just a bunch of pissed women who thought Hillary had the nomination in the bag, and was denied it. Most of those women supported Obama throughout his presidency. I don’t think Bernie voters are of that same mindset. They will want revenge after seeing Bernie denied twice through what they perceive as manipulation by the DNC and cronies.

As well, airlines have realized the benefit of continuity of the fleet, and mixing fleets is understood to be inefficient.

    Trump and Gov. Newsom appear to be cooperating now in countering the virus:

    “Since the coronavirus pandemic, the Democratic governor of “the most un-Trump state in America,” as he once termed it, has been so conciliatory toward the president in tone — and so unlike Democratic governors elsewhere — that he’s being praised by Republicans and Fox News.”

    In Western PA there are a couple that are saying “After food and shelter, there is no greater need or necessity than the ability to protect oneself and one’s loved ones.” Of course Wolf said that he will not send out the national guard or police to enforce it. Then it becomes a civil liberties issue.

    I’m predicting many Christmas and New Years babies this year. That’s constructive use of staying at home the next month. It will help with the future worker shortage and concerns over immigration issues, as well as a boom in retail sales late this year and into 2021…and let’s not forget increasing the future tax base too.

    Win-Win for all!

    I’m sure Mayor Butt will whine about how it’s discriminatory and not inclusive for all so I suggest we offer pet adoptions as an alternative so everyone feels included.

We’ve been able to use our laboratories, our emergency management team has done a very good job of reaching out to our state labs, getting them on track, getting them coordinated. Our testing numbers are way up, as you’ll see. Next week — by the end of this week we think we’ll be up to about 7,000 tests per day, which is an exponential increase of what we have done. I made this suggestion to the Vice President, I made it to the President. I often tell you when I am unhappy with the federal response to this state. The fairness dictates that kudos where kudos are due, and here the Vice President and the President responded very quickly. So I want to thank them for that.”

    Its interesting that Democrats so lovingly admire western European socialism, yet that EEC European countries have had about 2,268 deaths from coronavirus as of March 16th, compared with only 69 in the U.S. But Bernie tells us their medical system is so superior to ours.

    Please, if possible, refrain from comparisons such as this, especially at such an early stage.

    The only thing I am jinxing is the false Democratic claim that somehow the European medical system is far superior to ours. Instead it is a bureaucratic wonderland that results in delay. Germany is a notable exception.

  244. NYCmike says:

    -Forgot if I posted this already. Good article about how we think these days. I wonder how many people will die because of stress-related issues.

    “When the coronavirus finally runs its course, one of the most important tasks for health-care officials will be to determine whether the preventive measures we’re taking today were effective. Did deploying the National Guard save lives, or did it simply expose the soldiers to an infection that, in the end, could not be stopped? Did we pay too high a price for tanking our economy and disrupting our society?

    Or did we get it right, acting quickly and decisively to slow the virus, shutting down possible pathways of infection? By comparing the 2020 data with information from 1957, we’ll also be able to find out if the strange people who lived in that distant year—and I remember them well—could have done more to reduce the death toll of the Asian flu. The more answers we get, and the sooner we get them, the better it will be for everyone. When the curtain goes up on Broadway again, somewhere in a faraway continent to be named later, we can be sure that new viruses will be waiting in the wings.”

    I still think we should have just tried to isolate and quarantine the at risk population and let the disease run its course in the general population.

    I understand that means some of the at risk population would be contaminated by younger people, but that is happening anyway.

    There is just too much economic disruption in society for a virus that in 3 months has killed 5 thousand people in the most populous countries in the world.

  247. jason says:

    The MSM has definitely won this battle.

    They have tanked the world’s economy.

  248. jason says:

    Heh, looks like the Dutch are following my suggestion..

    “Today, President Trump encouraged the country to come to a screeching halt for a couple of weeks to combat the spread of Wuhan virus. I have a lot of doubts that this will work–our neighbors to the north are still accepting flights from China–or can work. Wuhan virus is a part of our ecosystem. It, like influenza, will be something we just have to deal with until the end of time. The gamble is that this initial burst of the pandemic burns itself out, aided by increasing temperatures and humidity, before the economy craters. If we gamble wrong and Wuhan virus surges back after the informal lockdown periods cease, then all we’ve done in the long term is nothing. The flip side of the coin is that people who survive Wuhan…and here I’m talking about virtually everyone who gets it, are left with some degree of immunity but people who got through it by self-quarantine will be just as vulnerable 4 or 5 weeks or 4 or 5 months from now as they are today.

    The other strategy available is to say f*** it, we can’t stamp this out, it’s going to be with us perpetually, lets let is run its course, try to isolate the highest risk citizens, and rely upon what is known as herd immunity for protection. Herd immunity is defined by the CDC as ““a situation in which a sufficient proportion of a population is immune to an infectious disease (through vaccination and/or prior illness) to make its spread from person to person unlikely.” That is what childhood vaccinations try to accomplish. If you can vaccinate 80% of the population, then the ability of a disease to spread approaches zero. That’s because most of the population can’t carry the disease and that protects the part of the population that cannot or will not vaccinate.”

    The Dutch and the Brits??

  252. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    259. “I still think we should have just tried to isolate and quarantine the at risk population and let the disease run its course in the general population.”

    This would make the most sense. It is very likely the virus is already widespread and the containment policy will fail.

    The one argument for social isolation is the need to “flatten the curve” which seems “the logical priority from a health care capacity perspective.” If we can limit infections prior to summer, when viral infections decline, it would provide a valuable pause. There is a lot of research on treatments and potential vaccinations. But to continue what amounts a massive economic shut-down over the long-term would be an insane policy. Just walking down the street tonight and seeing all the restaurants and nightspots closed was appalling.

    “Hoax” was the right word for Mueller’s “investigation.

  257. jason says:

    Messy Moron wakes up in the morning hoping more people will die and the more damage will be inflicted on the economy because MSNBC said that that is bad for Trump.

    No, Messy Moron is not a deep thinker.

  258. jason says:

    Here is the problem with believing MSNBC:


    “For me, personally, hearing these charges and hearing what they were charging these Russians for — it was the first time that I felt like finally, finally, for the first time since we realized all this was happened, finally, it feels like someone is defending us,” MSNBC host Rachel Maddow said at the time, seemingly holding back tears.”


    “Before a pandemic, there was a time when we were relentlessly told to fear Russian social media accounts,” mused journalist Aaron Mate on Monday. “Their juvenile memes not only elected Trump, but also ‘sowed chaos.’ When Mueller indicted 13 Russians over it, he was hailed as a hero. Well, DOJ just dropped the case.”

  259. jason says:

    “I click on Drudge several times a day. Bad news and liberal spin is a small price to pay as long”

    I used to think that too. Drudge always loved economic bad news, understandable given his Paulbot DNA, but he was not an MSNBC and CNN clone like his now.

    So he gets no more clicks (i.e. money) from me.

    I don’t advocate others to boycott anything, but I personally don’t reward enterprises that are clearly against my interests.

    I never bought another GM car after it became govt. motors. I don’t shop at Dicks anymore after they went to war against the 2nd Amendment. I don’t buy Gillette or Nike products.

    Conversely, I do try to support companies that are not trying to be politically correct like Hobby Lobby. But no, I can’t bring myself to eat Chik-fil-a.

    “like his now” should be “like he is now”.

    Coronaviruses have been around for decades…

    “Coronaviruses are types of viruses that typically affect the respiratory tracts of birds and mammals, including humans. Doctors associate them with the common cold, bronchitis, pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and COVID-19. They can also affect the gut.

    These viruses are typically responsible for common colds more than serious diseases. However, coronaviruses are also behind some more severe outbreaks.
