#5  Wife and I been out everyday except the 1 local staged and failed local BLM protest day, since Jan. 17th or about 240+ days.

We just treated this latest ScamDemic like we treated any Flu Season. No more No less. Just like we did for each of the 2 other National Election year Pandemics coming out of Asia.

We wore masks in Crowded Areas and half wore them in stores that had their Far Away Corporate written PC policies requiring them. (just like their employees do.)

* We had 4 family ages 24 to 67 get infected.
* ALL worked closely with infected persons over 120+ days before becoming infected themselves.
* ALL recovered in 2 to 3 days.
* All were barred from returning to work for 14 days.

To us it seems the Politicians and their talking head Medical stage props, ALL had private / Political agendas that did not remotely relate to the actual facts. Then they doubled and tripled down to on their erroneous actions by reciting facts in contradiction to their own previously cited facts and warnings.

Screw the Politicians and the Biden Minded Medical experts and the TV/Movie celebrities run to the mic sudden experts.

We will treat it like the seasonal Flu and take the same precautions and survive yet another year without their more wrong than right advice.

#6  I haven't missed a beat, either. I know of only one person who got the virus, and she is a nurse at a nursing home in the Midwest. She lost her sense of taste & smell...fully recovered within days. That is it.

This scamdemic is disgusting beyond belief.

#7  Other facts, from CDC data:
1. 79% of the fatalities were retired (over 65).
2. 100K died from pneumonia without COVID, compared to 75k from pneumonia with COVID.

BTW - there are two vaccines for pneumonia, one for 13 and and another for 22 other causes of the disease. I've had both, and still had pneumonia twice in the last two years. Both cases were resolved within a few days with antibiotics.

#14  Well. 2 colleagues was down for less than 12 days--that's not terrible. 1 was down for 10 weeks. One of my daughters was down for 12 weeks. That's not lethal, but it's not exactly trivial either. And by "down" I mean at best they're in the "gets winded walking across the yard and has to lie down" state.

#17  Second Clem.

The 7 minute video is worth watching. At no point is the WuFlu called a hoax, but the use of the WuFlu to justify heavy government.

I don't know anyone who got it in a mild or asymptomatic form.

I guess we wouldn't know a person asymptomatic. I have heard stories of mild. One local mild supposedly saying, "Its no fun, but no different than the crud going around last December."

To paraphrase what I just heard, "What we have is a governor relying on a university not known for its health background but well known for its political background making models to be used by politicians to justify policy."

Surviving COVID-19: A new model to stop deaths of lives and businesses
[ChristianPost] The COVID death rate in the United States is one of the highest in the world, even with our advanced medical care delivery and resources. Many less affluent countries have death rates 20 times lower than the U.S., even with fewer hospitals, doctors, nurses and high tech equipment.
By Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet

What is the common factor that accounts for the marked difference in death rates?

It is quite simply this: Other countries use EARLY OUTPATIENT TREATMENT with widely available antiviral medicines, begun at the first signs of symptoms, usually without waiting extra days for test results to confirm the physician's clinical diagnosis.

The LATE STAGE treatment model promoted by Dr. Fauci and FDA's Dr. Hahn has been for U.S. patients to be sent home to self-quarantine until symptoms worsened, and then go into the hospital when seriously ill with respiratory distress and heart damage. Only then do patients get offered medication, oxygen support, steroids, anti-coagulants, and others that typically don't work as well at this critical illness stage.

But home therapy could prevent thousands of hospitalizations and deaths, according to a just-published article from the respected American Journal of Medicine. The U.S. urgently needs to implement this early successful model. Lead author Peter McCullough, M.D., a cardiologist at Baylor, one of the most widely published physicians in America, is not just theorizing. He is actually treating COVID patients at home.

Dr. McCullough's recommendation would clearly save lives using cheap, safe, FDA-approved medicines — hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) with azithromycin or doxycycline, possibly ivermectin or colchicine, inhaled budesomide or oral steroids, home oxygen concentrators, plus supplemental zinc, vitamin C and vitamin D.

The supply of HCQ has been ramped up to handle its use in early treatment of COVID, but we have millions of doses in the Strategic National Stockpile deteriorating in government warehouses — vital medicine that is not being distributed because, for political reasons, doctors are still not prescribing for COVID-19 outpatients.
Ivermectin is mange mite treatment. I've used it for several years on rescue animals. Interested to hear more.
Ivermectin is a medication used to treat many types of parasite infestations.[1] This includes head lice, scabies, river blindness (onchocerciasis), strongyloidiasis, trichuriasis, ascariasis, and lymphatic filariasis.

1/20 of this will be 0.25% Any on your list (even if you trust stats from Iran, Libya, "Palestine") have it?

#4  OK, missed the difference. USA 610/million. 30.5 x 20 is 610. Less than 30.5 includes over 100 countries, such as Pakistan, Nicaragua, Venezuela, Cuba, Nigeria. Oh, and China. Uh-huh.

BTW, did you read the study?

#5  ^Many less affluent countries have death rates 20 times lower than the US., even with fewer hospitals, doctors, nurses and high tech equipment..

Clearly it talks about outcomes of infection, not per capita deaths.
And, in any case, 3 months ago deaths/million was 200 in Israel - now it's 1200. You think the same can't happen to countries on your list?

Home Front: Politix
So, How Do They Dump Biden?
[Townhall] It's Kurt As the Democrat presidential campaign degenerates into "Weekend at Gropey’s," a question arises: Assuming the Dems and their media minions somehow drag that rickety, basement-dwelling weirdo across the finish line, how do they get rid of him post-inauguration? Clearly, he would be a figurehead as Dr. Demento — sorry, Dr. Jill — and Kamala Harris joust for control before a backdrop of scheming pinko puppetmasters. But sooner or later, probably sooner, the Dem elite is going to try to put him out to pasture. How could they pull it off? And can they? Let’s see...

A few caveats: I think Donald Trump is going to win, so this is all hypothetical. The only bright spot for the Dems is the garbage polls his lying mainstream media allies keep pushing, and the liars are even having to concede that those are tightening, especially in states that matter. We’re days away from them pulling Grandpa Badfinger out of the debate. My money is still on the "I won’t normalize Trump’s racist cisgender sexism by appearing on stage with him" excuse, but "I fear the flu" is a close second. His recent catastrophic appearances outside his dungeon lair demonstrate that this guy couldn’t hack a debate if he was snorting rails of Namenda like Hunter hoovering blow on New Year’s Eve in Medellin. Trump holds an indisputable edge in other important areas, too, like enthusiasm, ground game, and continence.

I also want to put aside the very serious issue of the Democrat transition disruption plans, a plot so staggeringly unwise that only our garbage elite could conceive of it and think it would work out all right for them. Their dual track strategy of stealing the election through legal and extra-legal shenanigans, followed by cementing their own power via attacks on the Supreme Court, the Electoral College, giving statehood to territories, defunding cops, and disarming the populace even as they attempt to limit free speech are a recipe for disaster. So, let’s put aside the second civil war these fools seem intent on provoking — our esteemed elite does not seem to remember that Democrats are already 0-1 — and assume the peaceful transition of power they would deny Trump (and you).

Let’s focus on how they try to get rid of Bad Touch Biden should they win, because it’s pretty obvious that he can’t function as president, and it’s pretty obvious that other people want that gig. They are sharpening their knives already.

There is one huge problem with getting rid of him: his wife. She wants to be president so bad she can taste it, and she’s more excited to be president — uh, I mean first lady — than Brian Stelter, who is a potato, is at the thought of visiting Golden Corral. She’s going to do everything she can to be a limo lib Edger Bergen to her husband’s less-animated Charlie McCarthy. Moreover, the Joe Junta of advisors wants its payoff. With Depends Boy as figurehead, they not only get jobs but they get a whole lot of lightly supervised power. So, there will be a potent Dem faction supporting the Presidency of the Living Dead.

But others in the Dem elite want Oldfinger out of the way. Of course, Kamala Harris is the grasping, striving avatar of this faction. She’s already talking about "a Harris Administration." If I were Dr. Jill, which would be weird, I’d send some intern out to start Air Force One in the morning and hire a taster to clear Joe’s mornin’ mush. Now, am I saying that Kamala Harris would physically harm Joe Biden? Let’s just say that I’d rather gulp down Ruth Gordon’s smoothies in Rosemary’s Baby than roll those dice.

Regardless, she (and the Democrat establishment using the crusty crustacean as a Trojan Horse to retake power) will want be rid of him. The 25th Amendment is the most obvious play. And, frankly, it would be legit, since he is manifestly incompetent, not that stuff like facts and truth matter in modern politics.

The 25th Amendment, one of the rare parts of the Constitution that Democrats like, has been their fantasy Hail Mary play since Trump beat Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit. It is worth reviewing the entire process for replacing the president as outlined in Section 4, since, if America is dumb enough to elect the Dementiacrat in seven weeks, we’ll all be getting really familiar with it:

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

Thereafter, when the President transmits to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives his written declaration that no inability exists, he shall resume the powers and duties of his office unless the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive department or of such other body as Congress may by law provide, transmit within four days to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Thereupon Congress shall decide the issue, assembling within forty-eight hours for that purpose if not in session. If the Congress, within twenty-one days after receipt of the latter written declaration, or, if Congress is not in session, within twenty-one days after Congress is required to assemble, determines by two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall continue to discharge the same as Acting President; otherwise, the President shall resume the powers and duties of his office.

So, here is how it goes. President Biden gets inaugurated showing up for the ceremony in his untied bathrobe and confusing the oath with the Armour hot dogs jingle. Very quickly, Dr. Jill and the Biden Bunch start running things in his name while he spends his day upstairs in the Lincoln Bedroom, sitting on a stool, watchin’ his stories. The media gets busy covering for him because no contrary memo has circulated.

They ice out Kamala, who tries to assert control. Instead of wielding power, she’s sent off to do veep stuff, like appear at the bar mitzvah for the nephew of the High Poobah of Burkino Faso. This annoys her, and her allies — remember, due to her notorious flexibility, she is the candidate Obama and the establishment really wanted.

The trigger for the coup will be when Biden’s handlers are unable to push through the entire lefty agenda through Congress in the first 100 days. Banning guns, packing the Supreme Court, single-payer, Green New Scam. Assuming the worst case, that Schumer takes the Senate majority, they have to kill the filibuster and outmaneuver Cocaine Mitch to do all that. They need an active, potent president, and the one they are stuck with is busy slurping oatmeal.

The rush to the left bogs down because Biden can’t lead. The Democrat base starts getting restless, and it accurately assesses that the problem is that they nominated and elected a senile old weirdo. Dr. Jill gets a visit from a delegation of Dem bigwigs who tell her it’s time for him to resign. She refuses. She probably does not even let them see Joe, who is busy with a puzzle.

A decision is made: Kamala needs to take over.

The cabinet is full of folks like Pete Buttigieg, and with the aggressive action one would expect of the Audie Murphy of Kabul, he leads the other cabinet members (all of whom imagine they could be the next veep) to declare in writing that Joe is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office. Kamala takes over as acting president.

But the fight has only just started. Dr. Jill and the Biden Battalion send their own letter to the President pro tem and the Speaker of the House denying any disability. Within four days, Kamala and the cabinet send their response saying the opposite. Now Congress has to decide the issue. It assembles within 48 hours and has to vote within 21 days on whether Biden gets booted.

That’s when the snapping Murder Turtle bites hard. See, to remove Joe and permanently install Kamala, you need "two-thirds vote of both Houses that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office." McConnell now holds all the cards. There's no two-thirds without his GOP bloc. He goes to Dr. Jill and says, "You chill on the leftism, and we let President Magoo — and you — run out the clock until 2024."

Of course, she agrees. She’s got no choice. It’s either run a center-left presidency without the insane leftist nonsense Diddles ran on, or pack her stuff and get the hell out. That’s an easy call. President Biden gets to stumble through the next four years while Kamala gets to spend her terms doing potlucks with el Presidente de Paraguay.

Think it can’t happen?

Dude, it’ll be 2021. After 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and now 2020, do you believe there is any insane scenario that can’t actually happen in 2021?

-PC Follies
Princeton University may be forced to pay back $75m in federal funding after its president admitted racism was 'embedded' at the school
[Daily Mail, where America gets its news]
  • The US Department of Education has opened an investigation into Princeton University this week in Princeton, New Jersey

  • The DOE found concern over President Christopher Eisgruber's acknowledgement that racism remained 'embedded' at the school

  • The DOE will investigate if Princeton's claims that it adhered to Title VI mandates were false and any discriminatory practices as a result

  • Princeton could lose millions in federal funding if found responsible

  • Eisgruber penned letter this month that brought attention to initiatives implemented by Princeton to combat systematic racism

  • 'Racist assumptions from the past also remain embedded in structures of the University itself,' wrote Eisgruber

  • School officials said it was 'unfortunate' that the DOE believed 'grappling honestly with the nation’s history' indicated wrongdoing
Following the DOE's announcement, Princeton University released a statement that pushed back at the agency's accusations.

'It is unfortunate that the Department appears to believe that grappling honestly with the nation’s history and the current effects of systemic racism runs afoul of existing law,' the statement read.
