"The truth that no one is talking about."

Via Daughter Virginia

The Coronavirus Hoax, Ron Paul

Via Cousin John


Governments love crises because when the people are fearful they are more willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them. After 9/11, for example, Americans accepted the near-total destruction of their civil liberties in the PATRIOT Act’s hollow promises of security.

It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans.

Declaring a pandemic emergency on Friday, President Trump now claims the power to quarantine individuals suspected of being infected by the virus and, as Politico writes, “stop and seize any plane, train or automobile to stymie the spread of contagious disease.” He can even call out the military to cordon off a US city or state.

Health official: Coronavirus peak is over in China: Travel restrictions lifting, businesses reopening in Wuhan

Via Billy

With a marked slowdown in new infections at the epicenter of the novel coronavirus, China's top health commission says the virus has passed its peak in the communist nation.
Businesses in Wuhan and Hebei Province have reopened while authorities cautiously ease travel restrictions.

"Broadly speaking, the peak of the epidemic has passed for China," said Mi Feng, a spokesman for the National Health Commission.

"The increase of new cases is falling," he said.

“The Last Roman”: John Caldwell Calhoun

 calhoun 2

 Indeed he was, as I remember my Mother's words.

Born in 1782 near Abbeville, South Carolina, Calhoun’s educational opportunities were limited, albeit advanced by the occasional tutelage offered by his brother-in-law, Reverend Moses Waddel.

After his parents’ death and a period of self-education, Calhoun entered Yale College, studying under the arch-Federalist Dr. Timothy Dwight. He proceeded to study law for two years under Judge Tapping Reeve at the Litchfield Law School, the most prominent institution devoted to legal training during this period. Returning to his native South Carolina to practice law, a pursuit he considered “both dry and laborious,” Calhoun was married and served two terms in the South Carolina Legislature until elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1811. As a congressman, Calhoun continued to embody republican principles and acquired the reputation as a moral statesman who regarded republicanism and patriotism as synonymous: he supported the War of 1812; he revised Madison’s original national bank proposal and backed limited internal improvements; and he continued to praise a free economy and a regime founded upon “reason and equity” that was surrounded by a world of “fraud, violence or accident.”

Washington Post: All the Fake News That’s Fit to Print

As explained yesterday, Washington Post reporter Courtland Milloy maligned my “Defending Confederate Monuments” speech presented on Lee-Jackson Day in Lexington, Virginia. He asked that I send him a copy while we were sitting together in the front audience row during the preliminaries. I emailed it before I took the podium. After my speech he thanked me and said, “I will be in touch.” But he never contacted me. In a post here, yesterday I responded to his remarks about an incident I don’t recall ever happening. Today I reply to his comments about African-American allusions in the speech.

Dan Bongino and Others Call out NYT Editor for Altering Trump Quote From Conference Call With Governors

Candace Owens Calls Mara Gay “Pathetic” for Claiming “Racist Twitter Mob” Went After Her Due to “Trivial” Math Mistake

As it turns out, Mara Gay does not just have a math problem. She’s got a truth problem, too. A big one.

Gay, an editorial board member at the New York Times, was widely mocked earlier this month after she and MSNBC anchor Brian Williams agreed with a tweet from writer Mekita Rivas that read “Bloomberg spent $500 million on ads. U.S. Population, 327 million. He could have given each American $1 million.”

But though that whole situation was amusing (even though Gay didn’t find it very funny), something she wrote earlier today was not amusing at all. In fact, it was downright infuriating. Especially once people learned that it was fake news.

Here’s what Gay tweeted about a conference call President Trump did this morning with governors across the country on the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak:

Trump: Coronavirus Could Last Until July or August & U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton: It Is Time for a National ‘Shutdown’

 NEW YORK, NY - MARCH 15: Adam Carver, 38, wears a mask to protect against coronavirus while on a nearly empty Delta flight from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport o JFK on March 15, 2020 near New York City. Carver, a Brooklyn-based tech entrepreneur, was returning from an extended trip to Asia …

President Donald Trump said Monday that the coronavirus infection could continue until July or August, citing conversations that he had received from health officials.

“People are talking about July, August, something like that, so it could be right in that period of time,” Trump said after meeting with his coronavirus task force on Monday. The president held a press briefing on Monday afternoon at the White House to discuss the updated government guidance to stop the spread of the virus.

The president urged Americans to stay in their homes except for essential travel, avoid social gatherings of over ten people, and close their schools for the next 15 days.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Monday called for the United States to take more drastic measures to address the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, including a national “shutdown” that would only exclude “absolutely essential work” and stipends to affected workers to assist them in paying their bills as the pandemic continues to unfold across the globe.

“The time has come for extraordinary measures to combat the Chinese coronavirus. What seems extreme today will seem obvious tomorrow,” Cotton, an outspoken skeptic of the House’s relief package, said on Monday.

Cotton prefaced his proposal by referring to Italy, which now faces a health care crisis after an explosion of coronavirus cases in the nation. The crisis has led to overwhelmed hospitals rationing care for older, sicker patients.

150,000 immigrants from 72 nations with coronavirus stopped at border

Some 150,000 illegal immigrants from 72 nations with cases of the coronavirus have been apprehended or deemed inadmissible from entering the United States since November, raising the ongoing border crisis to a potential public health threat, according to officials.

New figures provided to Secrets show that over half of the nearly 300,000 illegal immigrants apprehended or deemed “inadmissible” this fiscal year came from nations with cases of the coronavirus, including China, Italy, Iran, and Sout. Korea

The administration has been bracing for a federal court decision that would junk its “remain in Mexico” policy and open the doors on the southwest border. But the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday put that on hold as legal arguments on both sides continue in the liberal 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which oversees Arizona and California.

Surrounded by amulets of the coronavirus crisis, I stare out my window at a city that may or may not be on the verge of disaster. To my right is a case of canned pasta. To my left are cartons of corned-beef hash from New Jersey and bottled water from Maine. I’m ready for whatever comes.

Except, I’m not ready. In fact, even at my advanced 80-something age, I find the whole COVID-19 panic to be strange and troubling. I’ve lived through epidemics before, but they didn’t crash the stock market, wreck a booming economy, and shut down international travel. They didn’t stop the St. Patrick’s Day parade or the NCAA basketball tournament, and they didn’t drop the curtain on Broadway shows. Will these extreme measures have any real effect on the spread of COVID-19 in New York, or America? We’re about to find out.

 Trump Calls Out Fake News Media for False Reporting on Coronavirus Website
President Trump laid into the fake news media on Sunday for their false reporting about a nationwide Wuhan coronavirus website that Google is creating in partnership with the federal government.

Several news outlets erroneously accused the president of lying and misleading the public about the existence and scope of the project.

At a press conference last week, President Trump announced that Google was working on a website to help screen people and coordinate testing for the coronavirus.

Sales of guns, ammunition, and “survival gear” are skyrocketing this week, amid concerns that the coronavirus could lead to breakdown in civil order or even a suspension of weapons sales, according to Business Insider.

Stores specializing in the “sales of survival gear like ready-to-eat meals, guns and ammunition” are experiencing a boom, and some retailers are even struggling to keep such items in stock.

March 16th, 2020 BIDEN GOES EXTREME: Give Oil Industry ‘No Ability’ To ‘Continue To Drill’, Take ‘Millions’ Of Cars Off The Road

 Democratic presidential hopeful former US vice president Joe Biden participates in the 11th Democratic Party 2020 presidential debate in a CNN Washington Bureau studio in Washington, DC on March 15, 2020.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden made extreme remarks during CNN’s presidential
debate on Sunday night, suggesting that he would end the oil industry’s ability to drill, would ban new fracking projects, and would take millions of cars off the road.

“No more subsidies for fossil fuel industry, no more drilling on federal lands, no more drilling including offshore, no ability for the oil industry to continue to drill,” Biden said. “Period. Ends.”
