The Morning Report - 4/6/20

pearldude.jpg

Good morning, kids. Another grim milestone as we begin yet another day and week with our nation held hostage by the Peking Pox Panic. There really isn't all that much to say that I haven't been saying for over two weeks now. But the fact remains that the longer our economy remains shuttered, the greater the damage we inflict on our mental and physical health, our financial security, and our freedom and liberty. It is also evident that despite the thousands who have been sickened and have succumbed to this Chinese pestilence, we are not living in the midst of an extinction-level event that justifies this lockdown. Not by a long shot. And yet, here we are with millions of jobs lost and small businesses, still the lifeblood of the economy, perhaps gone for good. Talk about an extinction-level event.

Yet the Democrat-Media Complex is eager to once again dance on the corpses, or at least the potential for corpses if it means using it as a pretext to rob the treasury, shred the tatters of the Constitution that yet remain, and of course bash President Trump. If you are still insane enough to read or listen to the legacy agitprop media, it is nothing but a torrent of lies and bilge blaming him first for acting too hastily, then not acting fast enough, being too much of a rah-rah Pollyanna, then a complete Debbie Downer and so on, promoting drugs that are useless or dangerous and then not getting them fast enough to New York or Michigan. Of course, the same media will have nothing but doom headlines about lack of beds, lack of ventilators, reports of sick people and corpses piled in overcrowded hallways as if they were describing the carnage at the shores of Iwo Jima or Omaha Beach - all while blaming Trump and prescribing the cure: more progressivism with Democrats in complete control.

It really is a sad state of affairs when our own media looks and sounds as bad or worse than a Communist propaganda organ. Oh, wait. They ARE a Communist propaganda organ since their reportage is virtually verbatim of what you will bear being spouted by that imprisoned nation's Politburo. Unfortunately, what's worse is when the President's own team spews the same kind of panic-inducing bilge that just drives the narrative forward and the markets ever downward.

U.S. Surgeon General Vice Admiral Jerome Adams says the coronavirus outbreak hasn't reached its peak yet, warning that the coming week will be the "hardest and the saddest week of most Americans' lives..."

"...This is going to be our Pearl Harbor moment, our 9/11 moment, only it's not going to be localized. It's going to be happening all over the country. And I want America to understand that..."

RUFKM?! Look, there's no doubt that people have died and are going to die. But to invoke two seminal events in American history over something like this, sad though it may be, is just manifestly irresponsible and utterly horrendous. Frankly, I am sick and friggin' tired of dredging up last year's statistics for deaths from all causes that in each and every category put Chinese Lung AIDS virtually at the bottom of the list. And don't get me started on Anthony Fauci. He's not exactly a great communicator and doesn't quite grasp the nature of the press and what they are there for. That said, he's been a creature of the Swamp for decades and as such has a vested interest in keeping his bureaucracy relevant, even if it means scaring the bejeezus out of the nation. A year from now, when we look at the death statistics, it's a fair bet that we will see a spike in suicides beginning in March that will far exceed that for Sino Sinus Syphilis. Meh, if you're unlucky enough to be in an area of Democrat influence, you could die from an infected toenail and you better believe the cause of death will be listed as Chi-Com coronavirus.

Let's dive into the links.
