1. So BARREL, I have a suggestion for POTUS TRUMP. I have been watching POTUS TRUMP’S daily coronavirus briefings and watching all of the snarky questions from the so-called reporters and I have what may be an intriguing epiphany/idea.
2. What is that PORK?
3. How about bringing all of the media owner moguls from Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, Breitbart News, Drudge Report, Infowars, Washington POST, NY Times, LA Times, Chicago Times, etc., etc., to a special multi-hour news briefing to them and the nation and leave all of their low level dog in the manger minions outside for a change?
4. How about talking directly to the media owners?
5. Get them in the same room and review COVID 19 with them and any other matters of interest.
6. And do so face to face and then use ZOOM or Gotomeeting weekly and get them involved in the solution so their dog in the manger minions don’t keep roiling the nation with their negativity.
7. Wow, PORK. That is a spectacular suggestion.
8. BARREL, my bet is that the media owner moguls are more than willing to help the nation and that at the same time they are willing to change the tone of the media from negative to positive and thereby help contain COVID 19 and get the economy back on a fast track.
1. BARREL, WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT CORONAVIRUS COVID-19 VIRUS vs INFLUENZA VIRUS.
2. PORK, I know a few things. I know that it sure looks like the media panic cart is before the politicians’ panic horse. Consider these facts. In this coronavirus panic, we have @ 100 cases of “COVID-19” virus with 9 deaths in the U.S.
3. In the Coronavirus MERS panic we had 2 cases and 0 deaths in the U.S. in the year 2012. No deaths then and no deaths since.
4. In the Coronavirus SARS panic we had 27 cases and 0 deaths in the U.S. in the year 2017. No deaths then and no deaths since.
5. Now let’s stop and at the same time take a hard look at INFLUENZA virus in the U.S. CDC says there have been 18,000 to 46,000 deaths from influenza virus in the U.S. so far this influenza virus year.
6. INFLUENZA VIRUS IN U.S. 1,000,000+ sick with influenza virus in the U.S. this year.
7. INFLUENZA VIRUS IN U.S. 400,000+ hospitalized with influenza virus in the U.S. this year. A hospital administrator friend of mine says the hospitals are stressed because of the great number of influenza virus cases.
8. INFLUENZA VIRUS IN U.S. 60,000 deaths are expected from influenza virus in the U.S. this year.
9. Perhaps more precisely, the CDC estimates that since 2010 influenza virus has resulted in
10. between 9 million – 45 million illnesses,
11. between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and
12. between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010.
13. Hey, folks, and especially you politicians and those who run the CDC, that means between 120,000 to 600,000 will have died from INFLUENZA VIRUS SINCE 2010.
14. BARREL, it sure does looks like we have the media panic cart before the politicians’ panic horse.
15. My friend’s granddaughter has INFLUENZA B so I checked this out and I’m pretty sure the numbers are in the ballpark.
16. PORK, it sure looks like INFLUENZA has been and still is the “hidden” pandemic in the U.S., a pandemic not addressed on Obama’s watch or Bush’s watch. Why the reticence is a question that deserves research.
17. Sounds like those in charge of the CDC either a) need to be removed from office and someone appointed who will focus not just on media politician panic COVID-19 coronavirus but also on this “hidden pandemic” INFLUENZA VIRUS issue or b) those currently in charge at CDC need to be tasked with gathering real numbers and reporting to POTUS TRUMP and the nation and c) more importantly take serious steps to cut INFLUENZA deaths – beyond simply saying “get your flu shot.”
18. Yes, PORK, I talked to one local health official and she said they do not count deaths of adults from influenza which sounds bazaar to me.
19. You are right, BARREL. If you don’t have the precise numbers it makes it difficult to work on solving the problem.
20. And while we are at it, BARREL, it certainly looks like the stock market has been manipulated with this media politician driven coronavirus panic. Someone needs to take a hard look at that one for sure.
1. You four – Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer – have ineptly wasted several years of our time and millions of dollars with your misguided animus and impeachment hearings and the four of you are guilty of POTUS ABUSE.
2. During the years since POTUS Trump was elected, you have spent all of your time criticizing POTUS Trump while doing nothing to help us be FREE, SAFE, and PROSPEROUS and in the process have violated your oaths of office and
failed your California and other constituencies and the nation in general. Once again your efforts to harm POTUS Trump have turned into an impeachment nothingburger and boomerang back at ya.
3. We predict a 2020 landslide for POTUS Trump because of your misguided investigations and animus and costly impeachment actions against him. We believe his real poll numbers are 80-90% now and given the way you have abused him it is obvious to us that the four of you are guilty of collusion against the POTUS and you four are also guilty of POTUS ABUSE and we call for your resignations.
4. The idea that POTUS Trump abused power is ludicrous given his letters and interaction with Ukraine which show:
a. NO HIGH CRIME!
b. NO MISDEMEANOR!
c. NO COLLUSION!
d. NO OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE!
e. NO QUID PRO QUO!
f. NO EXTORTION!
g. NO BRIBERY!
h. NO VIOLATION OF OATH OF OFFICE!
i. NO WITHHOLDING OF AID TO UKRAINE!
j. NO ABUSE OF POWER!
k. NO CAUSE FOR IMPEACHMENT OR CENSURE!
l. NO INDICATION POTUS TRUMP withheld military aid or anything from President Zelenskyy and Ukraine in return for an investigation of corruption – including an investigation into Burisma company and Joe and his son!
m. In fact, in conversation with POTUS Trump President Zelenskyy says he/Ukraine is just about ready to buy Javelins!
n. The fact is both men have a very low opinion of Ambassador Ivanovich and POTUS Trump is not faulted if he replaced her!
o. We have a mutual effort on the part of POTUS TRUMP and President Zelenskyy to work together and to reign in and eliminate corruption – and this with the help of prosecutor(s) in Ukraine and Mr. Giuliani and AG Barr — looking into corruption including looking into Burisma and Joe and his son and the China billion plus graft to Joe’s son and to Joe. If Joe withheld U.S. aid to Ukraine in return for the firing of the prosecutor looking into Burisma and Joe’s son – which Joe admitted and laughed at – and if Joe’s son and Joe got a billion plus from the Chinese, trace the money to Joe’s and his son’s various accounts including any hidden ones, Joe needs to admit his perfidy and quit his sham political race.
p. While the phone call transcript exonerates POTUS TRUMP, nothing to-date exonerates Joe or his son or you four.
5. The idea that POTUS Trump obstructed congress with a few tweets or refusal to dignify your one sided charade with witnesses is ludicrous. You four are the ones who have obstructed congress by preventing republican witnesses from testifying and by holding secret hearings. You four are the ones who are guilty of POTUS ABUSE, obstruction of congress, and abuse of power. All members of the house need to vote no on impeachment and stop this political madness and focus on helping us be FREE, SAFE, and PROSPEROUS.
In particular, he can guarantee that he will be a one term president simply by taking all or some combination of the following five steps:
STEP 1. IMMIGRATION. Fail to control the border and stop the invasion and fail to build the wall as he promised.
STEP 2. ABORTION. Fail to protect the BLACK, HISPANIC, JEWISH, NATIVE AMERICAN, ASIAN AMERICAN, CAUCASIAN AMERICAN unborn as he promised.**
3. JOBS AND TAXES. Fail to keep front and center the message to BLACKS and HISPANICS and ALL OTHER AMERICAS that he is helping them with jobs and tax breaks as he promised.
4. RULE OF LAW. Fail to indict and prosecute and bring to justice those including rich and famous who have aggrandized and enriched themselves by prostituting their elected or appointed offices as he promised.
5. MESSAGE. Fail to show and teach the nation’s Republican and Democrat WOMEN, MEN, YOUTH, BLACKS, HISPANICS, JEWISH AMERICANS, NATIVE AMERICANS, ASIAN AMERICANS, CAUCASIAN AMERICANS all of the promises he has kept and the immense good he has done during his term in office.
** Since democrat founded Roe v Wade in 1973 more than 300,000,000+ unborn American babies have been surgically and chemically murdered, killed, flushed, sent to land fills, sold for body parts, aborted: 50,000,000+ of the 300,000,000+ were BLACK babies. 50,000,000+ were HISPANIC babies.
