God bless you, Lloyd Marcus ‐ you will be missed!
An intelligent conservative writer who will be missed. Nice writeup by Robert Kirk
[American Thinker] On the morning of July 24, I received the unbelievable and shocking news from a family member that a friend of mine and that wonderful God-fearing patriot — the "Unhyphenated American" Lloyd Marcus, had suddenly died of a "pulmonary embolism".

I first made Lloyd's acquaintance about two years ago when I started corresponding with him after being duly impressed with his well reasoned and highly articulate articles published in American Thinker.

This past January, we finally met when Lloyd flew out to California along with his wife Mary and several friends and members of Lloyd's Deplorable Chorus to film Lloyd's patriotic and uplifting music video in support of President Trump's re-election, Trump Train 2020.

Lloyd, though he had an unassuming demeanor, was an excellent and articulate writer as evidenced by his numerous (in the hundreds) articles written for American Thinker and his inspiring songs.

Recently, I helped Lloyd retain the publicist A.J. Rice to promote Lloyd's Trump Train 2020 music video. In the past week, Lloyd had completed over a dozen interviews, and A.J. had another dozen or so on deck.

It has indeed been an honor and privilege to have known Lloyd Marcus. I know he is looking down on us now from heaven with that amused smile on his face, hoping and praying that we get it right in November by getting on board the Trump Train.

Lloyd, your spirit and your courage and your encouragement will be deeply missed. God bless you and keep you! Thank you brother for all you have done down here on this tiny little planet called Earth.

Before Covid-19, Trump's train was on a fast-track to reelection.
We've updated our Trump Train 2020 song to bolster Trump's mission to Make America Great Again, Again!
Please share this rallying-cry music video far and wide.
Thanks and God bless,
Lloyd Marcus, The Unhyphenated American

-Signs, Portents, and the Weather-
They Keep Moving the COVID-19 Goalposts: Will the Next Step Be Masks to Protect From the Flu and the Common Cold?
[PJMedia] How did we go from "flatten the COVID-19 curve" to "shut up and wear the mask—or else" in just a few short months? Back in March, we were told that lockdowns were necessary to ensure COVID-19 cases would not overwhelm hospitals and, in particular, intensive-care units. In most parts of the country, hospitals were not only not overwhelmed, many were forced to lay off nurses and other employees because elective procedures were put on hold — a move that likely cost lives as people postponed health critical screenings and avoided going to the hospital when they had chest pains for fear of catching COVID-19.

Before we go any further, please hear what I am not saying. I’m not denying COVID-19 is a serious and sometimes deadly illness. It is, and many families are grieving the loss of loved ones who’ve died of it. And many families are grieving the loss of loved ones from the flu, from auto accidents, and from cancer. Death catches up to all of us eventually.

I’m also not denying that masks can slow down the spread of disease. They can.

But at the beginning of the pandemic, we were assured that once hospitals had things under control we could go back to our regularly scheduled lives, with the understanding that as things reopened and testing increased there would be a spike in the number of cases. Now it seems the goalposts are moving again and we’re being sent into further lockdown —in some cases more stringent lockdowns than before — by governors and other mini-tyrants who are in panic mode because people are catching a contagious (but not very deadly for most people) disease that is, you know, contagious.

Case in point, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, who on Wednesday announced a statewide mask order that came with a threat: We’d all better obey him if we want schools to open in the fall....

But while the number of diagnosed cases of COVID-19 has risen in Ohio over the last month, hospital admissions haven't kept up and the number of deaths has plummeted...
[Graphs in link.]
You have to dig around the Ohio Dept. of Health website to find these numbers. When you land on the site you're greeted with a graph showing the cumulative number of deaths and hospitalizations, which make it appear there's been a huge spike, when in fact it's showing the growth of the cumulative total over time....

#3  I think NY, followed by NJ, have and will retain worst C19 stats. Not sure what "sides" and in particular any ideology involved. All of the current radical departures from conventional epidemiological wisdom (masks, lockdowns for a prevalent virus, even almost all of the "mitigation") are experiments that have shown no results, apart from the disastrous side-effects.

Science and public health in the US seem to incompetent, politicized, and even corrupted to be fixed, plus there's an ignorant misled public and a dead political class and no real press, so that looks like it's the new sub-normal. Ironically the UK might have some accountability and consequences for the arrogant attempt what actual science and history have taught can't be done.

(a) I'm talking about current stats - not history.
Current active cases:
California = 309,531; Florida = 376,134;
New York = 125,571.

Resolved cases = 100*Death/(Death + recovery)
California = 5.7%; Florida = 12.27%;

#9  Con virus plain and simple. I as well as many others grow tired of this political posturing charade. Fearing ghosts in the darkness all forms of human interactions become questioned. The brown shirts live among us and they have never left. I see it every day. This I call the true herd mentality or mob mentality. All at any moment can look upon another with what I call the stink eye. Wear your mask of invisibility and pretend all is well. Fear defies logic and will provoke actions of any variety or severity.

The county reported 7,505 diagnostic tests Saturday, 4% of which returned positive. The 14-day rolling average of positive tests is 5.6%. The target set by California is less than 8%. The seven-day daily average of tests is 9,201. Of the total positive cases, 2,391 -- or 8.9% -- required hospitalization and 614 -- or 2.3% -- were admitted to an intensive care unit.

#17  Hitchens: ‘Excessive COVID Fears Have Completely Changed the Country [UK]’

Have government and the mainstream media gone too far in amplifying the risks and dangers to public health over Coronavirus? First they ordered the public to stay at home in order to ‘Save the NHS’ and save lives, and now as the virus has almost disappeared from public health statistics, the government of Boris Johnson is ordering the nation to wear face masks in stores and public spaces in order to supposedly stop the spread of the virus – after previously giving advice that masks were not needed outside medical and care settings.

“They deliberately stirred up excessive fear at the beginning, which has completely changed the nature of the country,” says Peter Hitchens.

He adds that, “What we had before was a country that was used to the disciplines of work, used to the disciplines of commuting…that link has now been broken.”

In this episode, talkRADIO’s Mike Graham speaks with UK journalist Peter Hitchens about how the government has instilled “excessive fear” of a coronavirus ‘second wave’ which has fundamentally altered the way people feel about returning to work. The result has been an economic free-fall which has no end in sight. Watch:

#18  Think every other country in the World fakes Covid 19 data to influence your November elections?

No. I expect that in a world rampant with health and medical bureaucracy, dependent upon the state for funding, to do what any human organization does, use any opportunity to redirect funding to their fiefdoms.

#23  Shouldn't the NHS be saving British people, not the other way around?

The NHS was understaffed, overworked, under-sanitized, and putting patients prematurely on a palliative care death path long before the coronavirus showed up. The NHS was already not saving the British people, so clearly that is not their intended purpose.

#25  Of course they will. They will claim there is no way to tell the difference in public when people have a common cold, so just to be safe we need to mask up.
Posted by: 49 Pan || 07/27/2020 11:08 Comments || Top||

#26  A cloth mask has zero efficacy stopping this virus. Zero. On the rare occasion that media addresses the issue they'll hedge and say something along the lines of 'it's better than nothing,' which actually overstates their utility. So what's going on? My view is that we are being told to physically manifest fear. Fear is driving this 'crisis,' not a disease. If we were to go about our normal lives, without wearing fear on our faces, then the constant stream of media FUD would quickly fade into the background. We'd forget about it.

Dr Risch's Op Ed on HCQ and Covid19: The Key to Defeating COVID-19 Already Exists. We Need to Start Using It
[Newsweek] As professor of epidemiology at Yale School of Public Health, I have authored over 300 peer-reviewed publications and currently hold senior positions on the editorial boards of several leading journals. I am usually accustomed to advocating for positions within the mainstream of medicine, so have been flummoxed to find that, in the midst of a crisis, I am fighting for a treatment that the data fully support but which, for reasons having nothing to do with a correct understanding of the science, has been pushed to the sidelines. As a result, tens of thousands of patients with COVID-19 are dying unnecessarily. Fortunately, the situation can be reversed easily and quickly.

I am referring, of course, to the medication hydroxychloroquine...
How hard can it be to have someone in the Trump Admin ask Fauci and Birx about this.

#1  Experts Explain: The case for using hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to treat Covid-19

Adding fuel to the fire, indiscriminate use without due precautions, over-dosing, and prolonged usage resulted in many adverse side effects described in the books, even deaths. So the pendulum swung away from its use in many countries.
Posted by: g(r)omgoru || 07/27/2020 5:56 Comments || Top||

#2  indiscriminate use is a problem with many drugs

e.g., Tylenol which, when overdosed will destroy your liver or aspirin which when overdosed will cause vomiting and a coma and dehydration, iron when overdosed will cause vomiting and diarrhea and dehydration, beta blockers when overdosed depress your blood pressure to dangerous levels

After the statues are gone the leftists will come for the parks
[DaTechGuy] Even before the riots and the overreaching COVID-19 lockdown, Chicago and Illinois were losing population. The trickle will become a flood.

Mayor Lightweight believes she has satiated the leftist beast—her base is the far-left by the way. But the regular protests outside her home by that base of hers should serve as a warning. Now that the Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other leftists have learned that riots bring results, they’ll push for more. Power gained, or I should stay seized, is not casually abandoned by usurpers.

City parks may be next.

The U.S. Wants India as a Real Ally, Not Another Helpless Dependent
I’m sure John Frum and Dron66046 are all in on this.
[AmSpectator, HT AOSHQ] China’s Xi Jinping must be working for President Donald Trump. Although New Delhi has moved closer to the U.S. in recent years, no Indian government would subordinate its policies to Washington. If the Modi government fails to act, however, it will be inviting blackmail and coercion by Beijing.

Indeed, the latest bloodshed in the Himalayas, in which the People’s Republic of China is widely seen as the aggressor, pushed Indian analysts to contemplate the desirability of forging a military alliance with America. Editorialized the Hindustan Times: New Delhi should "double down on its partnership with the U.S.... and be a part of any club that seeks to contain Chinese power." Researcher Sushant Sareen suggested the choice was between reinforcing failure and making a new policy "which involves a much closer alliance with the U.S. and its allies."

It’s an idea that may appeal to more than a few policymakers in Washington. How better to encircle the PRC than add some military bases in South Asia? Yet America’s objective should not be to collect another hapless defense dependent, which justifies its anemic military efforts by relying on a U.S. security guarantee. Rather, Washington should seek partners that cooperate with America to enhance American security, especially by increasing the size, sophistication, effectiveness, and reach of their own militaries.

#2  Too true. India's leadership is nothing if not foolish and corrupt. But on the other hand, they are still an actual democracy, and they have to be worried that if they don't do anything to make life painful for China, their days will be numbered. Especially after a direct attack on their borders.

#3  India has been leaning towards the US more and more during Republican Administrations. It's a natural alliance for both if they consider China a possible threat.

India's main problem is half their individual states are Communist and the rest are corrupt so their internal economy is gonna be crippled until they figure that out.

#4  one reason China might feel free to kill Indian soldiers — but not Japanese or Taiwanese troops — is that Japan and Taiwan are sheltering under a U.S. security umbrella.

It's because they don't share a border with China, genius.

The last thing the US needs is more worthless, needy allies. We don't get any gratitude, just gimme gimme gimme followed by abuse for having a military. It's the no-win situation. The only winning move is not to play.
