        Cuomo may not be the chosen one. It appears he realizes that Trump is looking good. Cuomo could be discarded faster than Bloomberg. He is avoiding criticizing Trump. CNN has stopped kissing his arse. And he has been second guessing the shutdown. Cuomo may destroy New York financially. Deblassio is toast. 2 more victims for the Trump boomerang. If Cuomo was the chosen one the DNC would be hiding Biden. This is not going to be the Trump recession. Trump is now emphasize the seriousness of the virus and owning the downside. Which in Trump speak means a solution is in place. Trump always refuses to own the buck on anyone’s terms. But he always owns the downside before he reveals the solution. “It wasn’t my fault. Nobody ever had to deal with something like this. If it wasn’t for this team it would have been worse. Thank goodness I solved this. Nobody ever handled a situation better. People tell me I did the best job in history. If you weren’t fake news you would be saying so too.”

          I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: “the chosen one is Hillary Clinton.”

          Her backers are accustomed to a world where you make a deposit with the Clinton Foundation and Madame Presidente signs the bill that your corporation put through Congress, “properly lubricated all the way through.” They continue to believe that she is the rightful Presidente and that 2016 was merely a mistake to be remedied. They learned nothing from the experience but continue to deny it. And they will continue to do so, expecting that election fraud will ensure that the outcome of the 2020 election, and all future elections, can be preordained. It will be very convenient for them when they can tell their backers, “X will win, and here’s what the election outcome map is going to look like. It no longer matters what the American people think.” They’re pushing for that as hard as they can. Nancy Pelosi tried to insert “ballot box stuffing” into the latest must-pass bill but was caught in the act. She’ll try again. Because this is how these people think.

            I believe the Dems have chosen to lose the White House and are directing all their energy to the congressional races. Watch Pelosi et al in California in districts that are by any measure except ballot harvesting Republican. Watch the Senate races. Flip the Senate and there go the judicial appointments. If they keep the House, expect more of what we have seen the last two years. Biden is their sacrificial lamb. Since he is not without defect, those offering it should read Malachi 2:3.

        Gordon Brown came out today calling for a temporary global government to “combat this global epidemic”. He too is spreading gloom and doom over a fake crisis virus less lethal than the common flu.

        We all know that’s bullsh!t, and that NOTHING that “government” ever “makes legal” for it to do is temporary. It’s go time for Patriots worldwide to stomp out ANY efforts to enforce unnatural “laws” (they aren’t law when they’re unnatural, right? Right!) or edicts put forth by the UN or any other newly found totalitarian entity they may come up with.

        This is it. The battle for freedom, liberty, and sovereignty as well as the pursuit of happiness. Who among hasn’t lived their lives knowing that things are wrong but in fear of those who made them wrong. “Government”. The very word is as repugnant as is the term “secret societies.” JFK was right.

        Throughout his Presidency, he has scrupulously followed the Constitution.

        And, in this handling of the virus, I believe he has shown himself to be very much a Federalist, as in the papers AND society.

        He has done what the Federal government does well, marshalling all the Departments of the Executive, as well as Business and the General Public, to deal with the Emergency.

        But, he has left it up to each Govenor, to decide how,THEY want to handle it, at a State level. He Federalised the,National Guard, but ONLY to assure Govenors that the,Federal government would pay the Bill, while leaving each Govenor to use them as he/she sees fit.

        Federal government to search, world wide for scarce resources, but not to bid against states, etc.

        His responce has been near perfect.
        And, its brilliant politically, as Govenors own the downside of what happens in their State, and they look petty for critisising him.

          POTUS always ASSIGNS ownership where it rightfully belongs, with Governors OWNING the ChiComVirus SOLUTIONS for their States, including
          • Testing
          • Quarantines
          • Treatment
          • RECOVERY from INFECTION [No Hydroxychloroquine, SLOW Recovery]
          • RESTARTING their ECONOMIES [Delayed Restart, DEPARTING Businessees]

          Demo☭rats are desperately trying to trigger POTUS to “violate” the 10th Amendment for an October SCAMpeachment attempt. Will NEVER work.

          Latest trigger-pulls come from Demo☭rat Governors (NV, MI, etc.) threatening-to-intimidate doctors and pharmacies who might prescribe Hydroxychloroquine to hasten ChiComVirus recovery and thwart its spread … in Demo☭rats’ attempt to drive economic ruin into the 2020 Election.

          BOOMERANG IMPLICATION: This will create HOTSPOT COUNTIES in Demo☭rat States.

          POTUS for the WIN: His letter to Governors reveals his War-on-ChiComVirus Team will be designating COUNTIES-at-RISK (Low-Medium-HIGH).

          Demo☭rats for the LOSS: Hotspots drive ISOLATION!

      Damn Sync that’s actually a very good sign. Thank you for sharing. It’s a signal that he and his ilk are willing to follow Trump’s lead and get people back into action (I hope). SD’s talk about the 2 parties playing a game of oneupmanship is terrifying. The fallout of that happening is more than most of you would care to imagine I suspect. I’m no fool to think politics hasn’t or won’t be played. But the next several months those that play will be participating in very serious game. A game where no one wins only loses. There are ideologues in history who would attempt it. I don’t believe any modern day politician in the US would want to lose that badly. There comes a point that sacrificing your amenities are not worth it to become some power lord. If this economic engine throws multiple rods there’s nothing in it for lefties. And I believe even they understand this even if it means Trump is re-elected.

      Hi Viking Mom, question for you: Do you know if the country you live in has any idea how many people who have been carrying this virus, even spreading it, yet never showing any symptoms? That number is vital and I am not sure if they can even find out if a person recovered. Obviously most of the ones that do (if any) ever go to get tested. If we could ever figure out that number and came to the conclusion it was many that never showed symptoms we could understand the morbidity NOT morality rate. That’s what really matters is how many infected become really sick. If that is a small number than woo hoo. If the majority of people who contract this highly infectious disease have harsh symptoms it’s best we slow our roll and let this virus fizzle out as much as possible.

      • I think what characterizes this “new” virus is that it is both dangerous yet strangely non-threatening; it is dangerous because it is very quick to get a foothold in the body — even to those used to routine maintenance of their immune system — but once there, it stumbles around, causing various symptoms that seem menacing, but only become actually dangerous in the elderly and immune-system compromised. So there are, in fact, many who get it but don’t show serious symptoms. The well-known observations, that the average age of those who succumb is high and that few if any children even “get” it — to all observation — are entirely consistent with this, and should, I believe, be understood to show that the virus is in fact relatively weak, in the overwhelming majority of the population. If someone finds themselves getting a vague “bug” now, it is probably this one; it’s just not the demon we are all being led to believe, by “experts” who are only “expert” in vaccinations, but not in immune system protection and support in the individual (they are using a large hammer, instead of the needed jeweler’s screwdriver, applied individually to the finely-designed human body).

        People need to individually take responsibility for supporting their immune system, both at the first slightest sign in the nose and/or throat, and in defending it when this or any bug gets well inside. And that means taking the best immune defense herbs you can find, AND TAKING MUCH MORE OF THEM THAN IS RECOMMENDED ON THE BOTTLES (because that is only a “maintenance” dose, at best, not a protection against an active virus invader. Plus don’t touch anything you don’t have to, and use sanitizer when you do have to.

        But who listens? Not the Insane Left, and dedicated fear-mongers, who are the REALLY dangerous virus.

        Great question…to which, unfortunately no one seems to have a clear answer, which, I believe is part of what is driving the current fear based narratives! In a “normal” flu season, there is usually a wide range of people who contract the flu, based on the assumption that MANY people who get it will just stay home and self medicate. But with COVID19 that assumption is NOT being used for some reason and it is, IMHO why this appears to be so much more serious.

        I also would like to get a clear answer as to what the normal hospital bed capacity is for my area, including the number of ICU beds, but, again, no one seems to have an answer. I was lambasted online for asking the question and told that it would be a violation of HIPPA for a hospital to publicly announce how many patients they currently had and what percentage of their capacity that number was, which has absolutely nothing to do with HIPPA!

        Someone else responded to my request with the following comment: “Maybe you don’t need to see the data. Maybe you just need to read and follow the guidance and rules like EVERYONE ELSE!”

        Sorry, but I am NOT going to just willingly give up my civil liberties and watch my friends and family lose their businesses, and their livelihoods because someone in the Government tells me it’s for my own good!!

        This is where the finger prick test comes in, and whereas in the past it would have taken years to get one approved, I think Dr. Berk said the FDA is ready to approve, as soon as its available.

        A BLOOD test, as opposed to a nasal swab, will test for antibodies, and tell if someone HAS had it.

        The finger stick, will give near instant result, without the need of a lab.

        THIS is whats needed, and once broadly disseminated, will give #’s which can be used to project total exposures.

            Not nearly sophisticated as DNA, its a simple, binary test.

    from Wikipedia – regarding the motto:

    Per aspera ad astra or ad astra per aspera

    Per aspera ad astra (or, less commonly, ad astra per aspera) is a popular Latin phrase meaning “through hardships to the stars”. The phrase is one of the many Latin sayings that use the expression ad astra, meaning “to the stars”.

        ***Well, actually, it is the very foundation of mankind’s intellectual quest. “Heaven” was understood by the ancients as the celestial sphere — the stars, over our heads (and the stars were the souls of individuals who had passed on…thus, the hero of myth was in the end taken up to be among the stars, and thus immortal, a literary process that moderns label “catasterization”). So, technically, “ad astra” is our common, and exalted, destiny as human souls.

      It can be deadly in interaction with other medicines taken by diabetics, cardiac patients and pregnant women. It can cause heart attacks, seizures and death to some patients.

      You really must consult with your doctor. It’s dangerous to self-medicate. They are conducting clinical trials very rapidly, but until those are completed, hydroxychloroquine must remain a “last resort” drug, not a standard option for treatment. IT ISN’T PROVEN YET. Not for everyone.

        Mikey, this sounds like the AMA party line. There’s absolutely NO reason HCQ, a long-proven medication, can’t be the first line medication for the covid virus! Of course doctors should check for the minority of people for whom it’s contraindicated, but for most people short term use is safe and effective.

        Big Pharma just wants more time to come up with their version of a new ( read astronomically priced) medication to use in it’s stead. Let’s use common sense instead of bureaucratic red tape, shall we?

      • Hydroxychloroquine was the drug of choice to treat zika in pregnant women. The QT prolongation possibility means that patients should be screened & monitored if at higher risk for the complication. Chloroquine has been used since 1934 and is used as a prophylaxis in malarial countries for men women & children, millions & millions of doses. It is considered a very safe drug as confirmed by Dr Fauci. The drug is by prescription people can’t self medicate.

          You are so right, Growl. I posted in yesterday’s thread that my husband’s sister in Bolivia said that 2 years ago, they gave her 11 year old granddaughter hydroxychloroquine to treat her cough. It was immediately successful and she is perfectly fine. When the men go hunting down there, in the Bolivian Amazon, they always take hydroxychloroquine with them. No side effects! These countries in South America know the benefits and they are not hampered by an FDA and/or greedy doctors or politicians.

          Fauci and Bill Gates are looking for a more expensive drug (hydroxychloroquine was only $5 before this disaster) to create this vaccine they are trying to shove down our throats – a vaccine that will supposedly take “6months to a year” to create. What is that going to do for the people who are dying and suffering NOW? The lack of logic is astoundingly cruel, but par for the course. It’s all about the $$$ and the glory!

That’s why I (highly) recommend echinacea and goldenseal (and in large, not just “maintenance” doses that are what’s recommended on the bottles), and less talk about vaccines and modern mutts like “hydrochloroquine”. The whole public debate is wrong-headed, in limiting itself to always problematic and mercurial “vaccines”.

    I am getting more and more disturbed about Ohio’s director of health, a Democrat. She is predicting that Ohio will peak at 6000 by May 1. It sounds like they want to keep us on lockdown until at least then.

    I was on a Town Hall phone call from my Representative, Anthony Gonzales and a physician. I was the first question. I asked about how Dr. Birx in the President’s daily conference said we should be seeing mass testing by next week. I asked them if those with mild symptoms can be tested and also how they are working on an antibody test to see if someone has already had the virus. They said maybe, but as it is, only testing going on in Ohio is for those with severe symptoms.

    We had an opportunity to ask another question at the end by leaving a message. I asked how do we know if most people experience mild or no symptoms with testing?

    • Most of the dearth of data is because it can’t be released unless the patient or their survivors grant permission in writing to release it. That takes some time to do. Deaths are public domain info. CAUSES of deaths, and current health status (including hospitalization) is private, protected information under HIPAA.

      Who gets to decide cause of death varies state by state and case-by-case. Scientifically it requires either a QME (Qualified Medical Examiner) or a Forensic Pathologist to determine in a patient with multiple conditions which one actually killed them. Below that in training you have Coroners and the attending physicians. Sometimes it’s easier to rule than others. Also, some health insurance providers won’t pay for QME autopsies, and so some families decline to have them.

    This is exactly what I expected to happen.

    Whether out of incompetency or sabotage, the US was not prepared for this. South Korea was. South Korea was able to quickly test and isolate their infected citizens. South Korea was quickly able to control their outbreak by identifying and isolating their infected citizens. The result was a peak at 22 days and, as of now, 9,300 total cases and 139 deaths.

    South Korea had a scalpel. The US did not. Our infected population grew too big and we used a broadsword. Why that was the case is open to debate, and should be debated later. For the now, the question is how to “reopen” parts of the country where the infections are under control, while keeping those areas from experiencing resurgences.

    This letter suggests the administration wants to adopt the South Korean model. Increase rapid testing capacity to identify and isolate the sick before the infection gets too big for scalpel. One caveat to this is that South Korea used a tracking program similar to the “Google Project” the President mentioned, a project that many here, myself included, have concerns about.

    This letter also addresses what I consider the biggest failure of the CDC and the Federal government. We have well designed, well studied, well practiced guidelines and protocols for wildfires, missile attacks, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, blizzards, terrorist attacks, and other disasters. Apparently we have no guidelines or operational plans to coordinate Federal, State, and Municipal authorities for a pandemic response. Such a lack of planning leaves authorities in situations in which they make up things as they go, greatly increasing the risk for bad or politically-based decisions, as well as decisions that might conflict with or undermine efforts in other areas.

    Overall these are both very good steps which, if followed through on and maintained, should help us reduce the risk of similar future disasters and associated future nonsense.

        I’m pulling from Wikipedia for ease of formatting:

        “In its efforts to fight and contain the virus, South Korea has combined testing with contact tracing.

        Infected South Koreans are required to go into isolation in government shelters. Their phones and credit card data are used to trace their prior movements and find their contacts. Those who are determined to have been near the infected individual receive phone alerts with information about their prior movements.[162]

        According to Chun Byung-Chul, an epidemiologist at Korea University, high-risk patients who have underlying illnesses are prioritized for hospitalization. Patients with moderate symptoms are sent to “repurposed corporate training facilities and spaces provided by public institutions,” where they receive observation and medical support. Patients who recover and test negative twice are released. Close contacts and infected individuals with minimal symptoms who can measure their own temperatures and whose family members are free of any chronic disease are required to self-quarantine for 2 weeks. Local monitoring teams calls the quarantined twice a day to make sure that they stay where they are and to ask about symptoms.”

        ….

        “Those ordered to self-quarantine are required to download an app that alerts officials if the patient moves outside of the quarantine. Violators are fined up to $2,500”

        ….

        “As of 25 February, Daegu officials were aggressively warning residents to take precautions, while allowing private businesses such as restaurants to stay open. As a precautionary measure, many restaurants check the temperatures of their customers before accepting them. It is common for “offices, hotels, and other large buildings” to use thermal image cameras in order to identify people with fevers.[164] All Daegu’s public libraries, museums, churches, day-care centers and courts had been closed.”

        ….

        “The Blue House announced on 28 February the current status of coronavirus tests in Korea, comparing the testing situation in the United States and Japan. The number of inspections was 26 or 120 times higher than in other countries as of 28 Feb. The cumulative number of inspections was about 53,000 by South Korea, while Japan was about 2,000, and in US about 440 cases were examined”


        “CNN reported the innovative drive-through testing for COVID-19 in the northern city of Goyang, which was inspired by the drive-through counters at Starbucks.[218] Reuters detailed the new testing facilities in South Korea. Several drive-through coronavirus screening centres were built, including roadside testing facilities. Their purpose is to diagnose patients quickly, while preventing the infection of others in, e.g., a hospital waiting room or a community health center. The entire testing procedure takes several minute.”

        Again, I am not advocating for or against these measures. There are concerns, ethical and Constitutional, about some of them which require public debate. That being said, the most important factor appears to have been early mass testing.

        It is also important to remember that after the 2003 SARS and the 2015 MERS outbreak several Asian nations revised their healthcare systems to respond better to novel virus pandemics. South Korea did so after MERS.

        As to Rule 2: All well and good, but that won’t apply to every situation in the future. Washing hands is an effective way to reduced transmission risk for most viruses, but not for all. Nor does that risk reduce to zero. Additionally many people, including children, don’t wash their hands. That presents a problem with containing a virus such as Wuhan Flu at its inception, since many carriers are asymptomatic.

        As to Rule 1: I agree, but that is not my point. I am not advocating for a specific set of protocols or guidelines. I am, however, lamenting the lack of *any* protocols or guidelines and strongly believe their existence would have largely curbed the convoluted and economically damaging response to Wuhan Flu.

          Dutchman and AMK both explained the reasoning behind the stay-at-home policy the best IMO. (emphasis added by P)

          From Dutchman’s post on 03/25/2020:

          “With influenza, within 24 hrs of contracting the disease and therefore becoming a carrier, you are ‘self-quarantined’ simply because the symptoms send you to bed. Therefore, you can only infect, typically, so many people. Therefore, the # of vulnerable people who contract the disease and because of chronic health issues require hospitalization and/or die, enter hospitals gradually over the course of the flu season. Put another way, the “curve” is naturally and inherently “flattened.”

          While SOME hospitals during flu season have been known to TEMPORARILY stop taking patients, such patients are diverted to other hospitals while the TEMPORARILY inundated hospital deals with patient overload….the unique Covid virus enables infected and therefore contagious people to have no symptoms (therefore no natural ‘self-quarantine’ DUE to symptoms), they can infect many more individuals.

          The downstream effect of this is that: the ‘vulnerable population’ are far more likely to become exposed and infected IN A MUCH SHORTER PERIOD OF TIME. The result is that suddenly hospitals are overwhelmed with large #’s of critically ill patients in a relatively (in comparison to influenza) short period of time. And since ALL the hospitals in an area or even in a whole country or region are in the same boat, diverting patients isn’t possible…..”

          And AMK’s response on 03/25/2020:
          It’s NOT that we can’t treat the Chinese virus…it’s that WE CAN’T TREAT EVERYONE AT THE SAME TIME for the virus!

        We are attempting a very radical thing – it has never been done before – to try to modify the spread-pattern of a contagion that we still apparently do not fully understand. We of course cannot continue doing it for much longer, and we don’t yet know if it will actually work. But the President accepted the advice of his advisors and chose to take this action, and he remains every day completely involved in it, giving actual press conferences daily along with the usual “tweets.”

        And yes, even though it was a consensus decision, he is the President, and therefore he will be obliged to say what “Ike” never had to say: “If any blame is attached to this decision, it is mine alone.” Because that’s what it means to be the President.

        This man who isn’t drawing his own paycheck isn’t playing this for politics, while everyone around him is.

        What people like you fail to understand is that the vast majority of the US workforce works in service oriented industries which require face to face contacts with customers. Retail, restaurant and entertainment industries have been gutted. These industries have a lot of small businesses which operate on a small profit margin which employ people with limited savings. They can not handle a shutdown of more than a couple of weeks. many of them will not reopen. Then we have their customer base. Most rely upon a customer base with disposable income. After tapping into savings or excepting public handouts, this customer base will be greatly reduced. This will also adversely effect domestic and international sales, likely for quite awhile. This results in a contraction of services, sales and, inevitably, manufacturing and other production. This is a recession, if not a depression. How long will it last? Who knows. But, as the recovery is almost always at least 3-4 times as long as the causative factor, this will likely take close to a year, at least, to produce a significant reversal.

      Well, Mac, what do you suggest the President should do? I’m pretty sure he knows what you stated, and probably a lot more.
      What do you think he should do right now, and… who do you think would assist him?

        It is too late to do what should have been done in the beginning, treat it like the flu or other communicable disease and deal with it. Now, the President is mousetrapped. He reasonably believed in the advice of his government medical professionals, And, many of them turned out to be his enemies. So, he is in salvage mold. This is fine, but it does not make him a knight in shining armor. The damage to the economy has already been done. The economy is closely akin to a living organism. it can be injured. And, when it is, it takes a while for it to recover. In a human being, a cut takes a second to accomplish. It takes days, weeks or months for it to heal. And, if extensive enough, it damages the person for life. Is this Trump’s fault? No. But, he allowed it to get out of hand by following advise from people who he should have been very suspicious of.

      The borders are happily closed and even Rhode Island has checkpoints to keep New Yorkers out.

        I kinda like the idea of closing borders to certain state residents. A novel way for the red states to secede from the union. Quarantine them until they can be cured of their commie ideaology.

          I expect that PDJT will allow these radicals to “out themselves,” as they are right now doing, and then he will with a smile and a very simple statement shut them all down.

          Governors can’t take away medical licenses, can’t deny medical treatments, and can’t close the borders of their State to the free passage of citizens from any other State. But they are attempting all of these things to “Get Trump.”

          After a suitable amount of time, The Champion walks into the ring, smiles, delivers one knockout punch, and waves as he walks away. Once again, his enemies did this to themselves.

      Exactly! It bears repeating. “One more time, 2019-2020 flu season, 20,000+ deaths in the US. No shutdown. 2018-2019 flu season, 60,000+ deaths in the US. No shut down. SARS, MERS, Avian Flu, Swine flu, Zika, West Nile virus, etc. No shutdown. The US panic is nothing more than political kabuki. In the US, it is all designed to Get Trump. The Establishment will do anything to get Trump out of office. And, they will gladly burn down the house [the USA] and leave the peons out in the street, to achieve that goal.”

      Thank you!

    We need Trump as a “Smokey the Bear” type with strategies and public information campaign just like preventing and putting out forest fires. Think about that analogy. It works. Take any situation with forest fires from prepositioning equipment, to evacuating people, to firebreaks, to every citizen stamping out all the little sparks! Even fire towers watching for smoke. But no, the liberals prefer to sit on their hands and wait until the conflagration has gotten out of control.
