COVIDS SPREAD – The Begining of the END?

by Jack

According to most of our experts, the spread of COVIDs in CA peaked about 5 days ago and we are seeing daily declines.  New York is seeing a drop too.  There will of course be new highs in other states, but the rate of infection is still well below what our models have projected and the rate of recoveries is more in line the flu.

As of right now we can’t show how the draconian restrictions have saved lives anymore than moderate restrictions.    But, we can show how this quarantine has devastated our economy and the long term damage is yet to be tallied.

By all accounts the spread of COVIDs has been about as dangerous as a bad flu season.  A bad flu season has about 60,000 deaths.  The stats today in the USA are 814,490 cases, 44,342 deaths, Hospital Recovery 74,754.

The Lt. Governor of Texas said their state has a population of 29 million and they have had 495 deaths from COVIDS.  He notes that every life is important, but if they kill their economy in the process, what was the point?

CA Congressman, Tom McClintock said and I am paraphrasing, the governors of the blue states seem to think this quarantine was an “all or nothing” kind of thing.   It’s not and we needed to take into account the economic devastation we’re causing by these draconian quarantines verses the limited good they are doing.

We now have enough data to show that the CDC greatly overestimated the lethality of this illness.   The national data coming in shows very little difference in mortality between those jurisdictions with strict quarantine measures and those with balanced economic measures.  However, every day that goes by under the strict quarantine rules businesses are dying and they won’t be coming back.

Breaking news: It’s been reported that doctors are being encouraged to label every questionable cause of death, whether it was a flu or similar illness, as a COVIDs death because this helps with the bailout money.

    National Strategy for Pandemic Preparedness:

    President Bush spoke about his strategy in preparation for a possible avian flu pandemic.

      That is honestly hilarious. De Blasio is a moron and his response to the coronavirus has been terrible. I don’t know what he was expecting when setting up this stupid line.

    Excellent! I’ve been comparing him to Churchill who was so bombastic parlament kicked him out and then begged him to come back and save them when WWll broke out. We are at war and Trump IS our Churchill!

    Theory on Trump…Long..but worth the read….

    Just a short note prior to you reading this article. Of all of the hundreds of articles written about Donald J. Trump this one is, in my opinion, by far the most authentic. No matter your politics you will have a better understanding of our President after reading this.

    Very interesting theory on Trump’s success.

    The mayor of Livermore California explains Trump’s popularity and success.

    This is perhaps the best explanation for Trump’s popularity.

    Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA.
    He ran on the democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican. He is as conservative as they come. He wrote the following:

    Trump’s ‘Lack of Decorum, Dignity, and Statesmanship’ By Marshall Kamena, Mayor of Livermore, CA.

    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

    Here’s my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

    We tried statesmanship.
    Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

    We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?
    And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
    I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.

    I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.

    I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.

    Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

    The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ’60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – ’till today.

    The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

    With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ‘s first wartime president in the Culture War.

    During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the > most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drinker whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.
    Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln
    rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”

    General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
    Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastard, I read your book!”

    That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.

    It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

    Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.

    Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. They need to respond.

    This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

    The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported
    then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church.

    Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

    So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well – do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do.

    These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.

    So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!

    • Peggy says:

      Turns out Evan Sayet wrote this column on President Trump — not former Livermore Mayor Dr. Marshall Kamena. My bad, I should have checked first before posting. Still agree with Sayet!!

    • Post Scripts says:

      Wow, that was a good read – good find Peggy.

    • Chris says:

      Factual errors aside…I’d like to think that were I on your side of this “culture war,” I wouldn’t want President Tide Pod as my general, regardless of how well he “fights” (whines, abuses authority).

      “So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous — whether it’s ultraviolet or just a very powerful light — and I think you said that hasn’t been checked because of the testing,” Trump said, speaking to Bryan during the briefing. “And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or some other way, and I think you said you’re going to test that, too.”

      Full coverage of the coronavirus outbreak

      He added: “I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that.”

      But yes, at least he continues to strike back at the horrible fake news for directly quoting him. Tomorrow the defense will be that he never said this, and if he did, he’s right, and if he isn’t, it doesn’t matter, because MAGA.

      • Chris says:

        I see that the White House has clarified that Trump didn’t say it, he was taken out of context, and also he was being sarcastic to troll journalists (because that is appropriate and should absolutely be a priority as thousands die each day), and also we should still try it anyway.

        Consider this lib completely owned.

      • Peggy says:

        Fake news alert!!

        Watch Trump speaking to Bryan. You’ll hear Bryan’s responses and see his head nod in agreement. It’s obvious they’d had a previous conversation on the subject.

        Guess what? Trump was right, again. Ultraviolet injections have been going on since the 1940s.

        Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI):

        “A safe and natural therapy using light as a natural antibiotic
        Ultraviolet Blood Irradiation (UBI) is a procedure that exposes the blood to light to heighten the body’s immune response and to kill infections. With exposure to UV light, bacteria and viruses in your bloodstream absorb five times as much photonic energy as do your red and white blood cells.

        This means the fragments of the killed infecting agents create a safe, autogenous vaccination-like response. This further activates and directs your immune system to the specific infections your body is attempting to overcome. The net result is the induction of a secondary kill of these infecting agents throughout the entire body. Treating only 35 cc of blood with UBI induces a beneficial systemic response.

        The amount of treatment needed is determined by variables such as the state of health of the patient’s immune system, length of time the patient has been ill, and the severity of the disease being treated. UBI can be used clinically as both a SPECIFIC (i.e. psoriasis, lymph cancer) and NON-SPECIFIC (chronic infections, chronic fatigue, auto-immune diseases, etc.) immune modulating therapy, as noted in published studies.”

        • Chris says:

          So why did he claim he was being sarcastic?

          • Peggy says:

            How about the man is tired after being constantly attacked since he announced he was running in 2016, faught and won three failed impeachment attempts.. with a fourth one being teed up now, and he’s been working almost 24/7 in the WH since February to save lives and our economy.

            We’re done Chris. My mistake for responding to your comment supporting another fake news lie. You hate the man and no factual truths will ever change your mind. Try putting yourself in his shoes and see how you would respond after almost four years.

          • Chris says:

            “constantly attacked”

            He called his opponents’ wives ugly, said one of his opponents’ fathers may have killed JFK, said another opponent had to like “Mexican illegals” because his wife is Mexican, suggested an interviewer asked him a fair question because she was on her period, and attacked a POW for being a POW.

            And that’s only how he treated the Republicans!

            Neither he nor you has any grounds to complain about “attacks” on Donald Trump’s character. His attacks toward anyone who disagrees with him, even on the right, have been far lower and far more unjust. Why should a man like this not be attacked? Why should you constantly not only reward his behavior, but expect others to do so as well?

            (Also, he hasn’t “fought and won” three impeachment attempts. The only one he had to fight was the most recent one, and he didn’t even really have to do that—congressional Republicans were happy to do that for him; he didn’t have to *do* anything except instruct subordinates to not show up for subpoenas.)

          • Chris says:

            The “he’s tired” excuse is pathetic. Why can’t you just admit that his initial remarks made no sense and his contradictory explanations for them also made no sense? And that this is absolutely typical for a man who can’t coherently communicate with the American public, yet also never stops talking? Trump supporters constantly go out on a limb to defend his remarks only to have him cut off that limb the very next day. Doesn’t it get exhausting?

          • Chris says:

            For example. Today the president went on a three-tweet rant about journalists unfairly receiving “Noble prizes” for negative stories of him. He spelled it “Noble prize” three separate times. There is no such thing as a “Noble prize;” the President meant to to type “Nobel prize.” Except that wouldn’t be right either; he meant that they have gotten Pulitzers.

            If this kind of thing happened today, for the first time, I’d be willing to buy the “tired” excuse. But he is always like this. So it’s not that he’s tired, it’s that he’s an idiot. And not just an idiot, but a vain and whiny idiot who never stops talking about himself and how mean other people are too him. He can dish it out but can’t take it.

    “By all accounts the spread of COVIDs has been about as dangerous as a bad flu season. A bad flu season has about 60,000 deaths. The stats today in the USA are 814,490 cases, 44,342 deaths, Hospital Recovery 74,754.”

    But we don’t social distance at all during bad flu seasons. Don’t you think that number would be a lot higher if we were going about our normal business? Also, this is *on top of* the flu, not in lieu of it.

    • Post Scripts says:

      Chris, you’re right and I should have clearly stated that social distancing, being prudent about hand washing, and other reasonable low cost precautions should be employed for the duration of this pandemic. My point was, we can and should take all those reasonable precautions, but balance our restrictions against sensible economic considerations.

      We’ve flattened the curve, we are dragging it out so hospitals won’t be overwhelmed in the first 4-6 weeks, we’ve done what we should. Now we need to look at salvaging our economy, while still taking prudent precautions. So far the results say the per capita death rate is likely not to be significantly more if we try to save businesses, jobs and families from ruin. We don’t know that for sure, but we’ve got a pretty idea that this is the case and I think that is what we should be doing.

      Those persons at very high risk should continue with the quarantine.

    Dr. Deborah Birx: COVID-19 deaths, hospitalizations will be ‘dramatically decreased’ by end of May:

  7. Chris says:

    According to most of our experts, the spread of COVIDs in CA peaked about 5 days ago and we are seeing daily declines.

    Sadly, this did not age well. Deaths are still going up.

    I can’t wait to go to a restaurant or get my hair cut again. But not until we see a real and serious decline.
