The Morning Rant

talking ape  02 mask.jpg

The latest #OrangeManBad shrieking from the Democrat Party/mainstream media complex is that everybody knew that the coronavirus was a serious problem in January and the Mango Mussolini didn't take it seriously enough. Which is kind of funny on its face, as they've had their hair on fire for 3 years about Trump being an eeeevil fascist dictator who intends to take over the government and rule by decree, only now they're whining that Trump didn't use dictatorial powers to stop the spread of the virus.

So now it's "Trump didn't do enough."

In order to establish this narrative, they want you to pay no attention to the fact that back in 2018, President Trump established a National Biodefense Strategy specifically to improve the speed of action for any biological risk to U.S. Citizens. Both manufactured and naturally occuring threats were included.

They also want you to forget that, following the initial reports from China, President Trump set up a unified task force to coordinate all response efforts across the totality of government.

That was on January 30th.

And they don't want you to remember Trump temporarily suspended foreign nationals considered high risk from CV from entering the country, also on January 30th.

Also on that day, HHS Secretary Alex Azar declared a nationwide public health emergency.

The following restrictions were put into effect:

--Any U.S. citizen returning to the United States who was in Hubei Province in the previous 14 days was/is subject to up to 14 days of mandatory quarantine.

--Any U.S. citizen returning to the United States who was in the rest of Mainland China within the previous 14 days was put through proactive entry health screening at a select number of ports of entry, and up to 14 days of monitored self-quarantine.

--All foreign nationals, other than U.S. citizens and permanent residents, who traveled in China within the prior 14 days were denied entry into the United States.

These restrictions went into effect on Feb. 2nd, and they're still in effect today.

The response from the Democrat Party/mainstream media complex was to call the President a racist and a xenophobe who was "overreacting" to the CV threat. See the headline anthology below and watch this clip to hear what the Democrats were saying at the time, and compare that with what they're saying now.

The Democrats' attempts to completely rewrite history on the fly is unbelievable. The ink is scarcely dry on the paper and they're already claiming it said something else. They don't seem to realize that the internet is forever.

OK, WTH Is This Thing?

So my daughter and SIL are building a house on a sub-divided lot next door. A few days ago, they started installing some hot water pipes in the crawlsplace underneath the floor (part of the heating system they've devised) and they found some sort of odd potato-like thing. We have no idea what it is. It's butt ugly. Here's a close-up. I'm hoping their's an amateur mycologist among the Horde who could identify it. Note: there have been no weirdly-colored meteorites that have crashed in the vicinity lately. That I know of.

Monday's celebs: I was surprised how few theatrical-released movies 80's hunk Robert Urich actually made. Seems that the vast majority of his work was in various TV series and movies. One of the few chances you had to see Urich in the theater was when Ice Pirates was released in 1984, along with Mary Crosby, perhaps best known for shooting J.R. Ewing in the 70s prime-time soap opera Dallas. Urich, unfortunately, succumbed to cancer at age 55.
