    China’s Coronovirus sounds like the Zika Virus, or SARS, or any of the ‘cry wolf’ viruses of the 20th century. They have all followed this same pattern – virus outbreak – whatever country it starts in tries to isolate the area but it gets out anyway – it’s announced in the media – then a single case ends up in the US – the cure is always the same – an intervention by the World Health Organization and the Center for Disease Control followed by a massive government program to fight the virus. Then it will disappear quietly.
    Sorry if I sound cynical.

        I understand the virus is deadly. I worry for my husband because he has a weakened immune system.

        I am also sceptical. Flights were not stopped, people were not quarantined…. anywhere. I think governments wanted it to spread.

        The same thing happened with the Ebola virus and it came to the USA. Thanks to Obamination

          That Ebola outbreak was a travesty. Doctors Without Borders personnel refused to quarantine themselves after possible exposure. The virus was highly contagious, having spread to medical personnel despite their contagion protocols.

          Enemedia propagandists spread disinfo far and wide. When the truth got out, Barack Hussein ordered a news blackout in 2014. The Enemedia dutifully complied.

          Even the word itself was prohibited among first responders, and changed instead to “fever travel incident.” Nothing to see here.

          I also remember the threat of financial aid being withheld to one “offending” African nation, unless they stopped reporting (the truth) about the outbreak. Funny, but nobody ever thought to impeach Barrack Hussein Obola!

          Talk about *pressure!* WHO even changed their website to omit a previous reference of the spread of the Ebola virus through cough droplets, surviving for hours on surfaces.

          And, despite the virus detected in semen for several years, the Enemedia declared survivors “virus-free” after a few short weeks.

          Not fewer than thirty state-of-the-art contagious disease ‘containment centers’ were reportedly opened across the USA that year.

          How many Coronavirus facilities are they opening now in China? Actions speak louder than words.

      SARS was not “cry wolf”. That’s a serious illness with a high fatality rate. The only reason we weren’t affected badly by it in the US is because ground zero was China. They try to make themselves look like a 1st world country but they are still very 3rd world. And they have corrupt despot leadership. Chinese officials will allow their own people to be sick and die rather than announce an illness outbreak. Even in this case they were slow to announce. Based on my research so far it looks like a Hong Kong free press outlet was the first to break the news to the world, China didn’t announce til a day or two later (and probably only because they were forced at that point to announce.) See my timeline post below.

          If 8000 people were infected with SARS and 800 people died that is a very high mortality rate, much higher than influenza. I think the problem is that SARS, and this new coronavirus, affect the lungs very badly and cause pneumonia in most if not all who are infected. I was just reading a Lancet article, of the initial 41 patients in Wuhan, all had pneumonia and 29% of them had “acute respiratory distress”.

          The reason this isn’t blowing up much larger in the first world countries is because of our superb medical care. Same is true of Ebola. The Chicago coronavirus patient was admitted to the hospital 2-4 days after arriving in the US, already feverish and short of breath, and she’s still there, in isolation. If she were in a lesser country she’d probably be dead already and she probably would have infected other people.

        “In 2009 the H1N1 “swine flu” killed at least 18,500 people. At least, those were the lab-confirmed cases. The actual number of deaths are now estimated to be from 123,000 to 203,000 worldwide, according to a new article in PLOS Medicine. Even in our modern age of technology, pandemics can infect and kill multitudes. The brilliance of our immune systems prevent these pandemics from destroying even a majority of those infected, but the beasts of the earth still get to have their hour of glory.”

      There was a couple of very good articles week by independent a sources that have suddenly disappeared. The Chinese have a lab (or labs) that is work on viruses and even create them to “study” them. Those labs were inspected by teams from WHO (including US Doctors) and were heavily criticized for their safety measures, handling procedures and “leak” prevention capabilities. Odd how these diseases from China all seem to start with the city (cities) of these labs as the epicenter.

      Your comment about excuses for vaccine study funds is valid but couple it with unreported Chinese labs and the recipe for a major disaster is put in place. The diseases involved are of the rapid spreading variety, with no vaccine (especially influenza based viruses).

      The next wave of breakouts in central china will tells us more about the incubation period and the transmission susceptibility.
      What ever the originating vector source, this virus quickly started human to humun transmisson.

      If the numbers jump massively, and some news reports are already saying that is case and the Chinese govt. are hiding the true scale.
      So who knows in the age of fake news and click bait.
      However, something about this virus has the Chinese taking unprecedented actions that don’t match clavier dismissal that this virus is not the real deal.

      If it is a nothing burger, the same old flu seasonal flim flam, then why the over the board reaction?

    Latest guidelines from the CDC :

    Fever *AND* direct contact with people from Wuhan before they will run test on a patient

    https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/clinical-criteria.html

    and more importantly:
    “Clinical specimens should be collected from PUIs for routine testing of respiratory pathogens at either clinical or public health labs. Note that clinical laboratories should NOT attempt viral isolation from specimens collected from 2019-nCoV PUIs.”

    “For biosafety reasons, it is not recommended to perform virus isolation in cell culture or initial characterization of viral agents recovered in cultures of specimens from a PUI for 2019-nCoV.”

    So Quest or LabCorp should not run rtPCR. Only specimen collection

    So at this moment testing can only be done at the CDC:

    Folks, we are at war with these people. Not just the plotters, but everyone in the country who does not want him for POTUS or the american people to have their country back.. With everyone who has determined that law does not matter in their quest to control the country. They have no fear, no morals, no compunction, no respect of law or of life. We are at war, but the American people, until recently, have been hypnotized. As long as they keep us “acting civil” , being politically correct, not saying or doing “offensive” things, they can keep the upper hand. But make no mistake — they will kill us all to obtain and keep the power and wealth of this country in their hands.

    Everyone who does not want POTUS as president or the MAGA agenda is emboldened by the brazen unlawfulness of the dems leading the coup. We who respect the law and the constitution, must follow it in order to preserve it. That is a disadvantage.

    Our constitution, birthed by our Declaration that God gives us, as human beings, certain unalienable rights, demands that we respect all human beings as created by God, that we treat everyone as good, until proven innocent. We are constrained by this.

    Some people, for example, the barbary pirates, cannot be reasoned with, and will continue to loot, pilfer and kill, regardles. They caused Jefferson to conclude that they must be eliminated. And for this purpose, he created the U.S. Marines. Traitors who seek to destroy our government, must be destroyed, and the constitution gives us the authority to hang them.

    We are dealing with a group of God created people who continue to show they have no respect for our Constitution, for people, for law, for ethics, for logic, nor for life.

    To preserve our union, we must be prepared to again water the tree of Liberty. Not out of blood lust, hate, or predjudice. But out of respect and honor for what the Constitution stands for — a Republic — One Nation, Under God. To protect our freedom to be One Nation, Under God.

    These people are acting like vermin, and if they continue to show lack of respect for this Nation, the prinicples of God for which it stand, and the vulnerable people living in this society — then they must be exterminated like the vermin they are — with the authority of the Constitution.

      G’morning Doc, I whole heartedly agree. Personally, I took an oath and re-affirmed that oath at somewhat regular intervals. I believe and hold that oath dear. A war-fighter must not use hate but must use love and protection of brothers and sisters-in-arms and the principals of our Constitution to win the battles and the war.
      The Demoncraps hope for a Civil War but will be surprised that they have started a Revolution. The pendulum has swung far, far to the left and is now headed back toward the center. A Revolution will stop and reorient the needle to center-right as Our Founders designed. A Civil War however uses hate to swing the pointer far to the right, leading to untold possible horrors and lawlessness.
      I hope for the Revolution. I hope for the “love of country” to overpower and cast out the “hateful left”. If blood should be spilled to water the “Tree of Liberty”, so be it. It is long overdue by Thomas Jefferson’s standards.

      Thank you for that post. It goes to the heart of the problem very well. I knew three years ago that the DS is so large & so entrenched that it is impossible to remove them via the vote. So many of them aren’t elected officials anyway.

      The clock has been & is ticking down. We don’t have much time. This must be resolved and very soon. There simply is no time for long drawn out investigations, debate, or allowing those government officials who are not with us to stand in the way. Such as Sessions did, and now quite possibly Barr. I have posted here many times that the DS must be totally destroyed before Trump leaves office. The normal process is way too slow & the enemy is running out the clock by design. Thankfully, there are ways to deal with this that adhere faithfully to the constitution. Also new ways that while I don’t agree with them being legal, they are still on the books. Such as using provisions of the NDAA to round up & remove DS perps. Yes, it’s a military “funding bill”, but included in there is the authority for the President to use military in the US to do exactly what may need to ultimately be done here. How can Trump possibly allow Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler & others to simply go on as usual after their illegitimate “impeachment” attempt? Are there not laws against this? Yes, there are. And also the remainder of the coup plotters, obama, brennan, rice, jarrett, the clintons etc. These people all must be brought to justice. Every. Last. One. Of. Them.

      When you have no normally functioning DoJ, no normal IC, no normal State Dept, and few options to deal with most of congress, what is the President to do? What are his best options to win this thing? How can we all do our parts to help President Trump? And how can we accomplish all this before Trump leaves office? Because if the DS isn’t totally crushed before then, in about 4 minutes after Trump leaves office, we will be right back to where we were in 2015. Failure is not an option. jmho

        Schools have set up a pecking order. Those two are at or near the top. Those trying to reach the top often judge themselves by things like how many of their students get into elite graduate programs and how many of graduate students come from elite colleges. Same goes for professors. Though schools with money will buy Nobel Laureates.

        Worse, being accepted to such a school means you are automatically better than those who aren’t. I even had a professor advise me that lower ranked schools will make you clear more hurdles to earn a graduate degree. Sort of how they try to show their degrees are just as good as degrees from elite schools.

        Worse, these schools have set up an incestuous relationship with government. The halls of government are crowded with graduates of elite schools. And those graduates will have been taught by big named government people.

        So, getting accepted to those schools is getting your ticket punched for life. You will out perform most other college graduates for your entire life simply on the basis of getting accepted to one of those schools.

        That is, by the way, what progressives and liberals think of when they use the term meritocracy. They feel themselves to be better than all the rest of us, therefore they should make all our decisions for us. Because of course, they know better what you need than you do.

        The concept of merit being from performance still hangs around in sports and media, but it is foreign to how they think and how they want us to be ruled.

    After being burned a few times in the early days, why doesn’t Trump demand a list of all on the meeting/call. He demands background of all attendees. And kicks anyone out he doesn’t know. By the way, Trump should be the host and be able to kick someone out if he doesn’t recognize them.

    Are these phone calls as old school as old time party lines when anyone can get on? Obviously, I don’t think so. But it sure seems like it.

    I finally listened to the Lev Parnas tape. I only listened up to the point where some person is talking with the President about the Ambassador in Ukraine.

    Exactly how would any President have responded differently after being told his Ambassador, who was supposed to representing him and our country, was telling anyone who would listen to ignore him because he was going to be impeached, IMO this was a clear case of sedition by the Ambassador if true. She was weakening our country and our President on the world stage deliberately and openly.

    What I did hear on the tape up to that point was the same thing I have heard from the President at his rallies or on tv.

    Anyone who was at that dinner in Florida should sue Lev because he was not given permission to record their private conversations as a guest of the President. It is my understanding that a person has to agree to be recorded in that state. That is the only way to stop this activity. It is not so different from the Government listening in on private conversations.

      This is stupidity in motion, to demand any witnesses. It opens the door to an endless fishing expedition against the President for new witnesses as well as document demands, no matter who you name as a witness that can take the 5th or use the Clinton “I do not recall” defense.

      Yesterday Schumer made a statement that has gone unnoticed by the “friendly” elements of the media or is treated with derision. He clearly said, “the opening arguments for the defense made the case for additional witnesses”.

      Stop and think what he just said. He clearly said that the Schiff Crew presented NO evidence and there is NO case. The idiots calling for witnesses are playing into his plan. As SD says the plan all along is for the Senate to (Unconstitutionally) assume the House’s role of writing the articles of impeachment.

    Not a lawyer but on my wish list for tomorrow, I’d like to see the President’s defense team make the following points with the “distinguished members” of the Senate jury…
    re. “Obstruction of Congress” (aka, Not A Crime) – As Sundance has pointed out repeatedly, the house never established it’s legal authority for issuing subpoena’s during its impeachment “investigation”. Instead they sent “requests” for documents and testimony, which were denied by the Executive Branch. An interesting historical reference point to present would be how many times over say the last 100 years, have democrat and republican administration officials failed to comply with ACTUAL, LEGALLY ISSUED congressional subpoenas without impeachment ever being sought as a remedy? Remind the jury that litigation through the courts is the constitutionally provided and accepted course, not removal of the Executive by congress.
    re. “Abuse of Power” (aka, “Not A Crime”) – A data point available to the Presidents defense team that is not available to congress or the public, is the number of times President Trump was briefed about corruption issues in Ukraine by State Department officials or as part of the President’s Daily Briefing prior to the Zelinsky phone call. Sharing that figure with the Senate and the public, possibly along with redacted copies of the briefs themselves, would definitively establish the legitimacy of the Presidents concerns about Ukrainian corruption.
    Looking forward to a truly historic smack down day tomorrow!

      I would like the legal team to close by changing the narrative that this was an impeachment.

      This was a carefully planned and orchestrated democrat false flag operation. The purpose was to smear President Trump and do so utilizing taxpayer money.

      Most campaign ads smear their political opponent. The false flag operation just gives them cover to use government money and media attention to do so.

      The senate should take this position and vote on it and prohibit future attempts to utilize the senate to be engaged in a smear campaign. On this basis, McConnell can say no and let the Supreme court decide on the legitimacy.

  17. President Trump is doing a great job.

    But, until we get a clear Republican majority with very few Rinos in both House and Senate, he will not really be able to drain the swamp.

    The Dems are 180 degree opposed to the betterment of the USA
    – For higher taxes
    – For illegals
    – Against the wall
    – For more regulations
    – Against better trade deals
    – For abortion through birth
    – For impeachment
    – For socialism
    – Against free market
    – For government run healthcare
    – Against the 2nd amendment

    and on and on.

    We may have some bad apples in the Republican party, but the party is so much better than the Dems that we need to put our full support to the Republican party. Yes, weed out the Rinos, but no, do not diss the party, because the other side is literally insane. It is time we supported our side in full.

To not do that allows it to continue as is instead of having to face it’s faults and change.

However , those who were pushed into Medicaid, the largest portion of Obamacare participants, and those ‘reporting ‘ little or no income do get free insurance at the expense of those who now pay higher prices for insurance they cannot use. Also, I think it is a well known fact; should be anyway, that physicians and hospitals loose money on Medicare. Just part of the reason private insurance is so high. Since people on Medicare have paid their entire working lifetime for the benefit, why would they renounce it? We need to fix our health insurance system, but free stuff from the government is always a bad idea. And if the government is running it even a worse idea. Again, Medicare doesn’t pay doctors and hospitals what it actually costs to care for the patients. Medicare for all, bad idea.

      At this point in time, the Republican Party remains the better of two very bad choices.

      There are more than a few bad apples involved. President Trump did a “business” type assessment on which political party was ripe for hostile take-over in his quest to become President. The Republican Party was an easy mark, with: feckless leadership, weak (poorer) puppet masters, feckless members seeking to keep office above all else and most important an actual philosophical basis as well as constituency that best fit his view of the USA and MAGA Theme.

      We are fortunate he chose wisely and was elected. The Republican Party needs a major make-over and remains to be seen if its possible to retool the party while in the midst of battle for the very existence of our Republic Form of Nationhood and Government.

I went through a dozen or more news articles and other sources of info (including a Lancet article), and I came up with this timeline. She reminds me of the Ebola guy who came to the US after being infected with Ebola and he infected two nurses two treated him.

    Dec 1: symptom onset date of earliest admitted patient whose records were made available to The Lancet
    Dec 16: patients are being admitted to Wuhan hospitals at least as early as this date
    late Dec: the Chicago woman travels to Wuhan, she claims she went there to take care of her elderly father who was sick
    Dec 31: the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission reports a cluster of pneumonia cases of unknown etiology
    Dec 31: the South China Morning Post (Hong Kong) reports that Hong Kong is taking emergency measures because a “mystery pneumonia” has infected dozens of people in Wuhan
    Dec 31: Reuters reports on the virus outbreak
    Jan 1: the Wuhan market is shut down
    Jan 2: 41 admitted hospital patients are confirmed to be infected with the new coronavirus
    Jan 7: China isolates the cause of the infection
    Jan 9: Chinese media reports on the outbreak, China’s CDC makes the genome sequence publicly available
    Jan 10: WHO announces what they know about the coronavirus
    Jan 11-12: WHO receives and publishes more info about the coronavirus, WHO announces “WHO does not recommend any specific health measures for travellers.” and “WHO advises against the application of any travel or trade restrictions on China based on the information currently available on this event.” (!!)
    Jan 13: the Chicago woman returns to the US
    Jan 15, 16, or 17: the Chicago woman calls her doctor who refers her to a hospital, “She had shortness of breath and a fever when she arrived at the emergency room and was quickly placed in isolation “
    Jan 17: screening begins at US airports
    Jan 21: the US CDC announces the first US case in Seattle WA
    Jan 24: the US CDC announces the second US case in Chicago IL
    Jan 24: WHO publishes more info, and states “WHO advises against the application of any restrictions of international traffic based on the information currently available on this event” (!!)

    The woman travelled to Wuhan AFTER the outbreak started. And just because China was slow to let the news out (as usual!), you know everyone in Wuhan was aware that there was a major outbreak, especially on Jan 1 when Chinese officials shut down that meat/seafood market. She knew when she got there that something bad was happening. She travelled back to the US after Hong Kong media and then China media announced the outbreak.

    I’ll bet $$$ she was symptomatic when she returned to the US. I think she was like Ebola guy, she was thinking “Uh oh, I’m sick, I’d better get out of here now”. I want to know when she bought her ticket but of course we’ll never know. I want to know if her father was sick with the coronavirus. Notice that when the woman called her doctor he immediately referred her to a hospital, and she arrived at the emergency room already experiencing fever and shortness of breath. She knew she had it, and so did her doctor. This was just 2-4 days after she arrived back in the US. She is still in the hospital. If she was sick while on the plane ride back to the US she put that entire plane load of people at risk, just like Ebola guy did. We’re lucky we aren’t seeing 100 cases of illness here in the US.

    Perhaps most irritating, WHO continues to state that there should not be any international traffic restrictions. Does China own WHO now or something?

But according to the Washington Times article:

      One ominous sign, said a U.S. official, is the that false rumors since the outbreak began several weeks ago have begun circulating on the Chinese Internet claiming the virus is part of a U.S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons. That could indicate China is preparing propaganda outlets to counter future charges the new virus escaped from one of Wuhan’s civilian or defense research laboratories. […] Asked if the new coronavirus may have leaked, Mr. Shoham said: “In principle, outward virus infiltration might take place either as leakage or as an indoor unnoticed infection of a person that normally went out of the concerned facility. This could have been the case with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, but so far there isn’t evidence or indication for such incident.”

      Something that occured to me was…never let a crisis go to waste. The Chinese New Year must be very expensive for the State because they put on massive fireworks displays and other events. Isn’t it convenient that this is happening right now, right before the New Year? In such a large country that must be a huge savings. In a regime that, according to some things I’ve read, is fending off financial collapse, I can’t help but wonder.

      Add to that The World Health Organization was/ is still reluctant to declare this an international public health emergency and the fact that they are not restricting travel (adon’t want business to halt) nd I can’t help but wonder. I’m not saying there isn’t a crisis. But in a country that would normally control and downplay the coverage, they sure seem to be doing all they can to promote this.

          well said. In addition to saving money and distracting from food shortages, etc., it provides an incentive to keep people from participating in mass protests. In addition to the fear of getting sick, it provides an altruistic reason for the government to shut down assembly in the streets. Regardless of whether intended or not, the timing is certainly beneficial to the State.

That means this virus actually can live in the AIR for a limited amount of time before being ingested by many means into a new host.

            That was the how the Influenza Pandemic in 1917-920+ plus was sustained. For the US it was US Troops returning from Europe who were the primary, unwitting, initial vectors.

    The following paragraph is from the Mueller report. Note the FBI began an investigation of Manafort for money laundering in January, 2016. Also in January 2016, the whistle blower, Eric Ciaramella invited a group of Ukrainian prosecutors to the White House and asked that they (i) dig up dirt on Trump and Manafort, and (ii) lay off investigation of Burisma. Isn’t that a curious coincidence? It’s pretty easy to understand why Shiff can’t allow Ciaramella to testify. The identity of the whistle blower must be protected at all costs or the impeachment sham will blow up.

    In addition to Ohr’s interactions with the FBI and Steele in connection with the Crossfire Hurricane investigation, Ohr also participated in discussions about a separate money laundering investigation of Paul Manafort that was then being led by prosecutors from the Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section (MLARS), which is located in the Criminal Division at the Department’s headquarters. That criminal investigation was opened by the FBI’s Criminal Investigation Division in January 2016, approximately 2 months before Manafort joined the Trump campaign as an advisor, and concerned allegations that Manafort had engaged in money laundering and tax evasion while acting as a political consultant to members of the Ukrainian government and Ukrainian politicians.

    Seems to me the headline here should have been the quote cited by Peter Strzok, attributed to a redacted source, saying “The White House is running this”, referring in August 2016 to the opening of the Trump counter-intelligence investigation.

    It was during questioning by Jordan of Strzok revealed that the FBI was getting parts of the dossier from Bruce Ohr and that revelation was problematic to say the least since Steele was fired by the FBI for lying about his contacts with the media,” Jordan added. But Strzok was hesitant during this questioning and said that the FBI had informed him “not to give specifics” about his conversations with Ohr.

    We know that on August 5, 2016, corrupt FBI Agent Peter Strzok sent a text message to corrupt FBI attorney Lisa Page where he stated – that someone said, “the White House is running this”. The initials in this text were redacted when the text first surfaced but later the initials were uncovered as “L.C’s”. But we didn’t know who L.C. referred to –

    Now due to an FOIA request by attorney Ty Clevenger, we know who L.C. is. Leslie Caldwell handled the Mid-Year Exam (MYE) also known as the Clinton email investigation.

    This was a huge admission by James Clapper. Obama was behind it all. Obama was making the calls to have the FBI and CIA spy on Trump advisers all over Europe.

      It does not matter where the orders came from (Obama) etc; each Federal Official and each department had a duty to refuse to comply to the orders that didn’t comply to the rule of law and did not follow normal investigative policies and procedures, or they had a duty to resign.

      Every Federal Agency (FBI/DOJ CIA) were supposed to follow normal investigative policies and procedures according to the Rule of Law and the Constitution.

      The mountains of paper/digital and testimonies trails of evidence allegedly appear to show this did not happen.

      It allegedly appears to show that the Obama Administration conspired and implemented/approved the framing of the President Elect and the President of the United States of criminal acts that they allegedly did.

      It also allegedly appears to show that the Obama Administration allowed or approved the FBI/DOJ to allegedly not investigate Hillary Emails and the Clinton Foundation, by not following normal investigative/prosecutorial policies and procedures for political reasons, a criminal act.

      The consent agreement allegedly shows that Hillary’s Attorneys prearranged through a Consent Agreement (conspired) with the FBI/DOJ not to investigate Hillary Emails and the Clinton Foundations for political reasons, a criminal act.

      It appears in the Hillary emails alleged immunity deals were given with no consideration. Which can be reversed since alleged criminals can not give each other immunity deals.

      This thread disputing Clapper can go on for at least a thousand pages….

      The alleged conspiracy are all linked and is a continuation; Hillary Email, the communicator to the Clinton Foundation, the alleged largest criminal organization is U.S. history is allegedly linked to the Mueller Investigation (Russia) and the Impeachment.

    “I would like to close our impeachmint defense presentaion today by saying that Adam Schiff has wanted Donald Trump’s “head on a pike” for a very long time. Let’s listen to the desire to collude with foreigners and the nature of the kompromat,”.

    IPT — This August 5 comment is of major importance. Barr should declassify and release the name of the redacted speaker immediately.

    I am dubious, however, that Caldwell was the speaker. From the email chain above, it appears she was with DOJ. As careless as the whole coup crew may have been at times, I cannot believe that any DOJ person would have been foolish enough to admit in a large group meeting days into CH that the Obama WH was directing the show. The (differently colored) “LC’s” above may simply indicate that the instruction to redact the name came from Caldwell, or some other redaction code.

    Strozk and Page exchanged a number of texts in the days leading up to this big “meeting,” where Strozk would report on his London trip to an (unidentified) “Agency.” I think this entity most likely the CIA.

    When the unidentified “Agency” speaker dropped the problematic comment, Strozk vehemently disagreed and shot back (at least according to his text): “Maybe for YOU they are!” (emphasis mine). In other words, even the FBI, operating under DOJ/NSD, understood the importance of maintaining the APPEARANCE that the CH investigation of the major opposition party’s Presidential campaign was “by the book,” “business as usual, ” “ho hum,” “routine,” law enforcement activity, rather than a politically directed operation.

    IMO one of the reasons Durham so publicly disagreed with Horowitz on CH predication is that Durham knows there’s a LOT more nefarious background behind what culminated in the decision, which Priestap — likely naively, if not worse, — viewed as HIS alone, to open CH. That background was outside Horowitz’s jurisdiction. The redacted speaker knew much.

    Sundance and CTH,

    I think it’s time to start a thread dedicated to this Coronavirus. I sent my family major suggestions/prep for we here in the USA as well as up to date proximity. Sadly it’s here already. Better to concentrate suggestions and knowledge rather than spread it out. For example, this particular Coronavirus is transmissible during its incubation period (asymptomatic period up to 10 to 14 days) as well as when infected spread is possible up to 2 meters through cough? That’s 6.56 feet! Thanks.
