Thank the doctors, nurses and other medical workers who are just as scared and even more at risk as we all are.

Thank our first responders who are trying to keep the calm and peace, and look at each and every instance in society as an individual one.

Thank the truck drivers who are trying their damnedest to get products and supplies to stores so people can provide for their families during this ‘shut-in’ time of the pandemic. They are having a hard enough time themselves with their long drive hours on the roads, but also with places for meals and even bathroom stops closed along the way.

Thank those working in your still open stores who see the shelves empty moments after stocking them, and then have to put up with the occasional angry shopper cussing at them.

Kurt Schlichter: The People Our Loser Elite Look Down Upon Are Saving Our Bacon

Here are some people who matter, especially now: Soldiers, nurses, truckers, cops, the guy who stocks the shelves at Ralphs, farmers, and that dude rebuilding your roof.

The Chinese Bat Soup Flu has certainly clarified some of the blurred lines between what is important and what is frivolous garbage. Yet, in a time when millions of Americans are at risk of dying as a direct result of ChiCom conspiracies and the bizarre need of its serfs to eat any weird thing that crawls or slithers within reach of their chopsticks, our useless elite is fixated on making sure we don’t hurt the feelz of the very people who stuck us in this predicament.

Our elite is full of self-important morons who contribute nothing but more dumb in a time when the only thing we have a surplus of is dumb. The real hero is the guy who trucks in a load of whole wheat bread, ribeyes, and low-priced cabernet to the Trader Joe’s, not the Prius-piloting sissy with a Maddow fetish who shops there. The people our elite laughed at, scoffed at, poked at, are the very people who are going to rescue us from the mess that same elite helped make…

Yet, it’s weird how this virus is an excuse for our garbage elite to do all the stupid things it always wanted to do. Luckily, people aren’t buying it. At least not real people. Team Dummy is in full effect trying to undercut the president. He’s alternatively too harsh – MUH TRAVEL BANS IS RACISM! – and too soft – OBAMA WOULD HAVE ORDERED THE CHINESE VIRUS TO DIE! Clever people are coming up with innovative remedies and strategies and the job of the trash reporters is to shoot down any hope – TRUMP LIES THAT TREATMENTS MIGHT HELP! It’s like they are rooting for the Woking Pneumonia….

Read the whole thing.

It is (thankfully) rare times, such as these, that we see what some people’s worth truly is. And also see who isn’t worth a damn…

Tyler O’Neil: The Real Reasons Democrats Stopped the Coronavirus Stimulus Bill

So what is really going on? Why did Democrats vote to block the bill, leading to a 47-47 split in the Senate?

A Democratic aide dropped an essential clue when discussing the bill with The Hill. The aide complained that the stimulus bill’s small business provision would exclude nonprofits that receive Medicaid from being eligible for Small Business Administration assistance. The aide complained that this provision would impact Planned Parenthood, community health centers, rape crisis centers, and disability service providers.

As PJ Media’s Rick Moran pointed out, Planned Parenthood is not a “small business,” and neither are nonprofits.

On Monday, a senior Republican aide told Townhall’s Guy Benson that Schumer and Pelosi are pushing “unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions,” “increased fuel emissions standards for airlines,” and “expansion of wind and solar tax credits.” These provisions would arguably make the situation even worse for businesses….

Indeed, Sean. Indeed.

Coronavirus Updates: 3-22-2020

One thing is extremely clear, when the pandemic smoke clears there needs to be a massive and extensive on-the-ground international investigation into China’s bio-lab in Wuhan and any/all data therein and surrounding their outbreak, with as close to accurate as possible numbers and statistics, including the DNA markers of the virus of their victims over their two or more months of epidemic…

Matt Margolis: It’s Barack Obama’s Fault There’s a Shortage of N95 Respirator Masks

Last week Bloomberg published a story about the mask shortages and how that was making it difficult for hospital workers in various states to take alternative measures to help protect themselves during the coronavirus pandemic, including making masks out of office supplies, and taking masks home to bleach them so they can be reused. It paints a horrible picture of chaos in our nation’s hospitals, and attempts to blame the problem on the Trump administration, because the Strategic National Stockpile, which is maintained by the Health and Human Services Department, is insufficient for the current crisis.

Back in 2005, the Bush administration published the “National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza.” The strategy called for plans to distribute medical supplies from the national stockpile and to assist state and local efforts to handle an outbreak, but last month, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told Congress that the national stockpile of N95 respirator masks was 12 million—a mere fraction of the 1.7 billion masks government scientists estimated back in 2015 would be needed in the event of a severe flu outbreak….

Buried several paragraphs deep in the aforementioned Bloomberg story we find out that “after the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009, which triggered a nationwide shortage of masks and caused a 2- to 3-year backlog orders for the N95 variety, the stockpile distributed about three-quarters of its inventory and didn’t build back the supply.”…

A different story from the Los Angeles Times published last week goes into more detail about what happened after the swine flu pandemic depleted the supply. According to their story, “After the swine flu epidemic in 2009, a safety-equipment industry association and a federally sponsored task force both recommended that depleted supplies of N95 respirator masks […] be replenished by the stockpile.” The problem is that didn’t happen. According to Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Association, about 100 million N95 respirator masks were used up during the swine flu pandemic of 2009-2010, but, he said was unaware of any “major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown.”

In short, even though the Obama administration was advised to replenish the national stockpile of the N95 respirator masks, they didn’t. Despite the fact the media traced the cause of the shortage back to 2009, they accuse Trump of poor planning and trying to deflect responsibility….

And don’t forget this as well:

WSJ (8/15/03): Hillary’s Vaccine Shortage

Everyone knows America’s vaccine industry is in serious trouble, with an ever dwindling number of producers and recent severe vaccine shortages. What everyone also should know is that the National Academy of Science’s Institute of Medicine has now pinned much of the blame on Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Well, not in so many words. The panel of doctors and economists issuing a report on vaccines last week was too polite to mention the former First Lady by name. But they identify as a fundamental cause of the problem the fact that the government purchases 55% of the childhood vaccine market at forced discount prices. The result has been “declining financial incentives to develop and produce vaccines.”

The root of this government role goes back to August 1993, when Congress passed Mrs. Clinton’s Vaccines for Children program. A dream of Hillary’s friends at the Children’s Defense Fund, her vaccines plan was to use federal power to ensure universal immunization. So the government agreed to purchase a third of the national vaccine supply (the Clintons had pushed for 100%) at a forced discount of half price, then distribute it to doctors to deliver to the poor and the un- and under-insured….

You can read the entire WSJ article in a previous post. While this has little to do directly with this COVID-19 virus, it does illustrate the asinine meddling the government does in private industry that ends up backfiring on several levels. It also illustrates the MSM’s lack of intellectual honesty in covering these outbreaks and shortages according to the party affiliation in the White House. And of late, Hillary’s been all over Twitter blaming Pres. Trump for everything right now when it is directly traced back to the previous administration’s failures.

Video making the rounds on Twitter of spring break beachgoers defying the various mandated precautions for avoiding the spread of COVID-19. A still shot of the video above, where members of the joyfully drunk and debauching group of student loan debters remark, “”Nobody here gives a f*ck about the #Coronavirus”.

A couple of surface observations here from me…

1. These aren’t ‘boomers’. They’re smug know-it-all “whatever-you-say, boomers” who dismiss everyone in their parents’ and their parents’ parents’ generations for whatever reason(s), but mostly currently because they believe in a socialist utopia where the decrepit elder communist Bernie Sanders will have then farting edible rainbows out their collective lazy asses.

2. And while COVID-19 seems to not hit their age group very hard right now, I’m pretty damn sure a case of it on top of E.coli would raise their chances of being counted in the worst ‘statistic’ of COVID-19. Yeah, death. For the record, top shelf whiskey doesn’t really have the level of alcohol content needed to kill the Coronavirus. Highly doubtful your can of beer has anything of high enough alcohol content to kill E.coli living in somebody’s ass-crack on a hot and bacteria-laden beach and ocean.

But by all means, keep telling us “boomers” how insignificant and stupid we are not to see the world your way.

A couple months ago I binge-watched “Schitt’$ Creek” on Netflix. Just like “The Office” it’s become one of my go-tos when I can’t settle on anything to watch on TV. One scene had the wife of the Mayor of Schitt’s Creek bringing the dislocated at-rock-bottom formerly rich family some Nanaimo Bars that she baked. So, as I do with pretty much any foods I hear mentioned in TV shows and movies, I looked it up…

Wikipedia: “The Nanaimo bar is a dessert item of Canadian origin. It is a bar dessert which requires no baking and is named after the city of Nanaimo, British Columbia, on Vancouver Island. It consists of three layers: a wafer, nut, and coconut crumb base; custard in the middle; and a layer of chocolate ganache on top…”

And here is one of many recipes for this yummy treat.

A Googolplex Newsfeed…

I talked to my sister last night who’s doctor. She said the fact that the vast majority of the dead around the world are old aged and those with pre-existing medical issues proves the virus was designed in the lab to ‘alleviate and eliminate’ the elderly population from world society. She pointed out that she had previously read the Wuhan lab was one key in using the local bat population in their viral experiments. I pointed out to her that we don’t exactly know the age dynamics of those who died in China but the videos and photos I was seeing leaked out of China were of various ages, including young adults. I then said that proves it came out of their Wuhan lab and that the virus was initially extremely potent and uncontrollable. However once it cycled through a human carrier it mutated away from stronger healthy carriers and is now targeting the elderly and medically weak. Hence infecting the Wuhan population in order to spread it to foreigners therein that would carry it back home was more than acceptable … Basically a remote suicide terror attack. She agreed. I also said that over the last month I have heard/read conflicting reports that the virus had mutated, that there are at least two strains. Then recently I heard someone on TV say it had not mutated. I also believe our CIA/intelligence knows exactly what is going on and it is a weapon. Hence, our government’s/nation’s rapid and extreme measures of closing everything right now. And it is why our President insists on continually pointing out this virus is from China. We, and the world, have been attacked. And Sweet Jesus, take the wheel…

Cut Jib Newsletter: The Morning Report 3/20/20:

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here and I’ve become almost numb to the madness brought about by the Chinese Communist Lung March Yellow Peril. That said, while I am heartened by some of the news coming from the President and his team, or at least desperate to be heartened by even some glimmer of hope, it’s difficult to not be alarmed by the potential consequences to me personally and the life of the nation. Whether or not this disease, which originated in and spread out from China, has the potential or will wipe out vast swathes of the populace (and as each day passes I doubt that more and more) the eagerness of the media to intentionally frighten the public is beyond irresponsible or criminal; it’s monstrously evil. The most egregious so far have been the editorial board of the New York Times and Little Big Gulp Bloomberg and his media empire. I think it’s more than just Trump-hatred and America-hatred. I think they are both paid operatives and agents in service to spread propaganda and disinformation and sow unrest. The fact that they, and most of the rest of the media, are parroting almost word for word and almost in real time the abject lies coming out of Beijing and the Central Committee makes them literally treasonous.

Even before this outbreak, it’s an undeniable, well-established fact that China seeks absolute global domination within the next 30 years. The election of Donald Trump and the MAGA agenda’s central pillar of anti-globalist pro-American trade policy, coupled with Chinese economic stagnation, a flat-lining birthrate and serious internal unrest exemplified by the Hong Kong protests threatened their hegemonic goal. But with the unleashing of Sino Sinus Syphillis, the Chi-Coms may have gotten some breathing space (no pun), but America and the world are now taking a long, hard look at their relationships with China, and collectively saying “Sum-Ting-Wong,” followed in short order by “Ho-Lee-Fook.”

And that is why you are seeing the Chinese along with their ventriloquist dummies in the American media and elsewhere desperately trying to place the blame elsewhere, even to the point of blaming – who and what else? – Trump and America, while casting themselves as paragons of virtue and victims of racist xenophobia. Now you understand why Trump makes a very big deal of saying “Chinese virus.” If the Chi-Coms succeed, the world will be once again lulled to sleep before being My Pillowed in the opium den of history….

It’s NOT the dreaded “whataboutism”. It is the fact that our elected class really does consider itself above the laws that typically bust OUR asses. Yet, this is a gottcha political opportunity in an election cycle and during a pandemic crisis where we have witnessed three years of economic growth, employment, and profit erased in less than two weeks. And instead of a great reveal of the facts that our government and its wealthy members need audited on several levels.

The TDS Zombies of The Coronavirus Apocalypse

There are anti-Trump Coronavirus zombies right now pushing so many broken-wheel carts of bullshit it is really hard to get away from the vile stench of their rotting evil brains. They expect us to believe Pres. Trump and his administration did nothing, and continue to do nothing, regarding Coronavirus from Wuhan, China. The evidence is quite to the contrary of these masters of total bullshit…

Poor, Sulu, he doesn’t have to try so hard to be such a big idiot when it comes so naturally to him…

Do you recall Joe Biden’s ‘Choose Truth Over Facts’ missive gaffe a couple of months ago? I explained to you how ‘truth’ is fluid to the left, and has nothing to do with actual fact-based ‘truth’-truth. Truth is what they say and believe it is at any given twisting and turning opportune moment. ‘Facts’ are mean, biased, racist, sexist, etc., and therefor cannot be used for any reason. This is what is happening right now. The facts of what Trump and the administration did, or didn’t do, and why are out there. However, the MSM and the vicious left intends to eat our brains to keep us from seeing them in spite of their gnashing and tearing.

Then there are those who should be above the bullshit and politicizing something that should never be politicized because: 1. it in no way possible helps the situation and 2. is not just wrong but evil…

RS: MSNBC Legal Analyst, Glen Kirschner, Claims President Trump Could Be Charged With Murder Over Handling of Chinese Wuhan Virus

Utter bullsh** like this is what gives the legal profession a bad rap. There are actual federal laws and Supreme Court decisions that cover this issue. There is no mystery here. Donald Trump can no more be charged with murder than Eric Holder and Barack Obama can be charged with murder over Fast&Furious even though if Holder had not been the Attorney General and organized such an operation… and I mean even if he’d been a state attorney general…he would have been indicted for numerous crimes up to and possibly including homicide.

These people are jokes. But they aren’t harmless jokes. They are vicious, conscienceless and evil jokes who will not think twice about killing you or your family if it serves to make a political point. At a minimum, President Trump should direct Attorney General Barr to go through every case brought by Kirschner with a fine-toothed comb because with this attitude you know his douchebag railroaded a lot of innocent men and women. He should direct the FBI to investigate any questionable cases and, if warranted, he should ensure that this Jack McCoy wannabe gets a taste of what “novel ways” of interpreting the law feels like on the receiving end….

My cure/treatment for Glen Kirschner’s blind hatred would be a public flogging, but I would settle for the above suggestions. That, and anyone who has been, or a had family member, prosecuted by this asshat pustule should demand their cases be re-opened. The ABA should also get involved in penalizing this shithead and any other “lawyer” that spews such unmitigated bullshit. By his inane standard, since a sitting POTUS cannot be prosecuted, the no longer “sitting” Barack Obama should go to trial for the over 1000 deaths during the H1N1 pandemic (270,000 hospitalized and 12,000 deaths April 2009 to April 2010) he ignored for several months. His entire insane Twitter tweeted diatribe of politicized legal fascism is in the Twitchy link below…

Twitchy: NBC News and MSNBC legal analyst (and ex-federal prosecutor!) hopes Donald Trump can be charged with homicide over COVID19 response … Idiots come in all shapes and sizes, some spending a Hell of a lot of time, energy, and money to achieve that status … and they usually end up congregating on MSNBC and CNN.

Twitchy: Hillary Clinton takes a break from partisan politics to help unite the nation (JUST KIDDING!) … You’re such an unmitigated liar, Hillary. Never change.

Twitchy: HELL to the YEAH: Trump absolutely shuts down reporter whining that using ‘Chinese Virus’ creates a stigma (watch)

NYT: Andrew Cuomo to President Trump: Mobilize the Military to Help Fight Coronavirus: The time is growing short and fewer options are available. Using federal troops to help create hospital beds is one we should try.

Politico: Why you can’t just ‘call out the military’ to fix the coronavirus crisis – The military isn’t a cure-all.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants the Army Corps of Engineers to build overflow hospitals. Bernie Sanders wants to call up the National Guard. Joe Biden says “call out the military — now.”

But the military isn’t a cure-all, and there are significant legal and practical limits to what the armed forces can do during the coronavirus crisis….
