The Morning Report - 2/28/20

Good morning, kids. The weekend is here, and thank the Lord for that. While the coronavirus and its spreading is not to be taken lightly, the panic over a possible pandemic has been 100% manufactured and pimped by a media that both lives off of sensational scare headlines and is desperate to destroy President Trump. And when I say destroy President Trump, I mean destroy the American people for daring to defy them with their mostly unwavering support for him and concomitant rejection of them. Both the Dow Jones and S&P suffered their greatest single-day loss in history, the former down nearly 1,200 points at the close, which comes on the heels of a two-day dump of about 2,000 points. Yes, I am aware that investors do no like uncertainty, and when way too much of our and the world's products are produced in China, something like this is of course going to have a negative effect.

But yesterday, when the markets seemed to be leveling off and cooler heads prevailing, mostly as a result of the President's pitch-perfect press conference where he deftly dodged the gotcha brigades, Gavin Newsome, the man presiding over a state that has devolved into virtual third world status, announced that they were monitoring 8,400 coronavirus cases in California, a statement that, given the facts as I understand them I find very hard to believe. But Wall Street listened and the markets swooned. Again, we have every reason to be concerned about a potential spreading of the virus within the US, but given the state of our healthcare delivery system as opposed to the rest of the world, and the actual lethality of the virus compared to other things such as SARS, Mers and ebola, the fear is just unwarranted.

But the Democrat-Media Complex never lets a crisis go to waste. For them, the crisis is utter failure in their attempts to oust President Trump, and the even more disastrous failure of having his policies help every American better themselves, especially traditional Democrat constituencies which have been mired in misery for decades. Being demonstrably shown to be frauds, failures and swindlers, they could not allow that to stand. So, if causing a panic to spread 1,000 times faster than the actual virus wipes out close to $1 Trillion of average Americans' investments and retirement accounts, with the added benefit of blaming it on the President's tax and tariff policy along with general OrangeManBad and stupid, then so be it. What they are really doing, and they know they're doing it, is inflicting pain and suffering on the American people as punishment for rejecting them in 2016 and most likely 2020. That, to me, goes beyond the merely criminal - it's pure evil.

That said, as bad as things are, I think this too will ultimately fail. There is just no way PDT is going to allow the Democrat-Media Complex to define this as Trump's Katrina, (which was quite obviously the perfect storm of Democrat incompetence and graft, but sadly Dubya felt defending himself by pointing that out was beneath him). The virus is going to peter out and the market is going to recover. The added political bonus is it gives the President and the GOP, if they're smart enough to play along, ammunition to use the coronavirus as evidence for border security, strict immigration enforcement, and the disengagement from Globalist economic policies that moved so much of our manufacturing overseas and made us reliant on and vulnerable to a geopolitical enemy that we once foolishly believed we could make an ally by selling ourselves out to them (thank you Nixon, Bush and Clinton). By the way, that's not a hypocritical politicization on my part; that's a righteous and proper response to actual critical problems with real-world, serious consequences that we have ignored for far too long. No doubt, the President and team realize this and will act accordingly the next time Malig-Nancy Pelosi and Cuck Schemer open their cake-holes.

Lastly, on a very positive note, it looks as if Israeli researchers might be well on their way to a vaccine, and not two years down the road either. Yes, I can see the likes of Bro-Fo Omar and Bernie Sanders already, spewing "the evil Yahoodies have a cure because they created the virus in the first place, and now they want us to pay for it!" Well, they can always boycott the vaccine since they don't want to chance getting Joo-Cooties. By the way, the same Israeli research center that might have a vaccine is the same one that is going full steam ahead on the total cancer cure.
