The Morning Report - 3/25/20

floozflop.jpg

Good morning, kids. Wednesday and the breaking news is that evidently Cuck Schemer and Malig-Nancy Pelosi have caved and are going to support a $2 Trillion relief package crafted in the Senate late last night. I will assume some pork is in there but at least it's not the whole Leftist hog. The Dow already posted a 2,113-point gain, the highest single day gain since 1933 and hopefully this good news (despite no one knowing where the money is going to come from; tick-tock debt clock) will also engender another positive gain on Wall Street. Surely, the President's remarks that he wants to see the economy moving again by Easter may also give everyone a much needed boost of confidence, except of course the g-dless heathens in the Democrat-Media Complex who, like plague, thrive on misery, suffering and death itself.

From a medical standpoint, despite the real deaths here and especially abroad, the propagandists are constantly pumping out fear headlines about rates of infection and celebrities or young people contracting the Chinese rot. What they do not tell us are actual fatality rates as well as the survival rate associated with this particular strain. And although we are seeing more cases, as a result of more testing, and a rising number of deaths, in a population of 315 million there are still only about 400 deaths. It would be useful to have accurate data from the source, that is Communist China, but that of course is a non-starter. In any case, back here in the US we're not even looking at whether the aforementioned were the primary cause of death or some other underlying health condition that contracting the virus exacerbated. Plus, despite the outliers of a few cases of younger people being victims, the vast majority are the elderly and those with compromised respiratory function. In other words, the typical victims of common flu and other viruses which kill tens of thousands every year without denuding the forests of trees to make toilet paper or bringing the American economy to a grinding halt.

Again, I reference you to a couple of positive links from actual scientists including one showing that this virus does not mutate readily, and another from an Oxford epidemiologist stating that the doomsday model of Chi-Com Gleet killing millions is way off base. Elsewhere, VP Pence says that the very promising malaria pill is being readied for shipment to the hotspots of NY, CA and WA, but Democrat governor Steve Sisolak is evidently a science denier and is refusing to allow chloroquinine to be used by Nevadans.

Also, the talk about flattening the curve has one problem; given that we don't really know when the pandemic started, it's not really possible to predict when that curve will bend. Still, given everything he has to go on from his team and from a bureaucracy that has proven itself to be inept, politicized and more than likely populated with Obama holdovers, the President is making the right moves to allay the public fears, cut red tape to get resources in place and give a glimmer of hope that we should be out of the woods on this in order to get back to normal as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Naturally, he is being ripped to shreds from the usual quarters for trying to give a glimmer of hope to the nation. All things considered, I think this crisis - which I still believe is more than 50% manufactured for political gain by the Left - has done more to burnish his credentials as one of our greatest presidents than even his policy successes, which are not inconsiderable either. What I also think is heartening are what his poll numbers show, or more precisely what they don't show. Even in this perhaps irreconcilably divided nation, if you look past the way-over-amplified bilge from the agitprop media and elsewhere in self-anointed elite circles, Donald Trump has proven himself to be a uniter. I think this episode will propel him to victory in November and more crucially have a far deeper positive effect on the nation long afterwards. Cockeyed optimist? Maybe. But I still am grateful to G-d that he is in the Oval Office, now more than ever.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.
