    We started a trade war and became the #1 producer of energy. The cold war vs russia was won with economy. So u theow a virus at the capitalists, shake the confidence, and hit them right where it hurts and where we are hurting them. What if russia actually planted the virus in wuhan… we get pissed at china, they ruin our economy, russia becomes good trade partner with china rather than usa.

    SD has written extensively on how legislation is written and how legislators have little to do nothing to do with the authorship of bills. After looking for more than an hour on how the COVIC 19 CARES Act was written and coming up empty-handed (no surprise there), can anyone shed light on the genesis of this act and how it was written, who were the driving forces?

    • We the People- there is something very fishy about how quiet the hospitals are in my area of suburban NY. I am within 20 miles of 5 major hospitals and none of them are at anywhere near capacity from what I gather.
      It seems like there is a major blackout on local news regarding our hospitals. No news on local FB groups from overworked medical professionals from Westchester.
      Every Corona death reported in local Fake News media has an underlying cause in the fine print. I expect that next they will claim someone who dies in a car crash who tested positive after death will be considered a victim of the Chi Com Flu.
      This Lockdown MUST END and end soon.
      Our President Trump was correct when he said last week that the CURE is WORSE than the DISEASE.
      Thanks to everyone for posting all the great articles about experts and scientists who have their doubts about this.
      We are losing our precious Liberty and Freedom. The Left Commies are LOVING this.
      Hope and pray that Team Trump is reading everything we are and will make a move in the other direction.

    Mayor Andrew Cuomo – I know little about him, except for his famous Father, and brother Fredo. I did a little reading & thought I would share some highlights.

    – He appears to be reclusive, holed up in his Albany Governor’s mansion & reportedly walking the streets alone with his dog, visiting Dunkin Donuts. Or that’s the spin. Restores vintage muscle cars. (More PR?)
    – Broke up with his long-time girlfriend, Sandra Lee, last year, hence his time alone.
    – Interestingly, he is 3″ shorter than Fredo (5’11” vs 6’2″), but pictures of them together show Andrew taller than Fredo.

    – One Internet poster claims Andrew Cuomo is dating his top aide, the married Melissa De La Rosa, 34 (formerly Melissa DeRosa?).
    – Melissa De La Rosa’s Father, brother, sister, & herself (previously) are Lobbyists.
    – Giorgio DeRosa, her Father, is a senior partner at Bolton-St. John’s.
    – This article in a local paper had her playing victim because of one off-color statement by a senior executive, and bc some IVF fertility treatments weren’t coveted by health care insurance. She makes roughly $200,000 per year. She takes credit for many of his liberal policies, including the $15 minimum wage.

From 2011 to 2012 — the start of the Cuomo administration — Bolton’s compensation rose from $4.86 million to $5.61 million.”

    In the Army, company sized unit commanders have to sign a receipt for ALL the equipment in their unit. That receipt is typically referred to as the “property book”. When I was stationed at Fort Riley, KS, a tornado hit the Gunnery Range while we were at Tank Gunnery. On that date, every troop commander’s property book was made good that night because the tornado ate it, no matter where the item was located or if it was even lost at the time.

    Allot of the data reporting sounds the same, covering for mistake and making the statistics right to fit the “projections”.

    This is going to be anecdotal so bear with me. We have two daughters in their mid twenties. About 20 years ago they went into Pre-K etc. and started bringing all kinds of colds and flu illnesses home.

    Seems natural that this would happen. I for one hate getting sick so I started researching how to protect Mom and myself so we could take care of the little ones. That’s when I came across an over the counter remedy called Zicam. It comes in many forms, from lozenges to nasal swabs and sprays. It is a Zinc medication.

    And IT WORKS! It does not prevent the illness but it shortens it dramatically. The premise is that taken every 4 hours it prevents viruses from replicating in all of your nasal passages throat and lungs. This gives precious time for you body to build antibodies before you get overwhelmed. One caveat, it does not work unless you start using it immediately on the onset of symptoms. After 48-hours it’s too late. Replication has already take place. Sprays and swabs are the most effective.

    In my experience with our family it cuts colds and flu episodes from a week or weeks to just 2-5 days.

    We have been using this now for over 20 years. It works better on the young which get rid of their flu in just 2-3 days. I’m much older so it take me about 3-4 days on average. But it’s not a week or two.

    Here in Florida we had an outbreak of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) a couple of years ago. My wife did not use Zicam in time and was sick for over 2-weeks with two visits to the doctor and a wicked cough throughout. I got it and got rid of it in 4 days – cough lasted 2-days.

    My kids swear by it an keep a supply in their med cabinets.

    Zicam – it works for us, your mileage might vary. COVID-19 is a respiratory virus. It could work with it as well.

    God Bless.

      A word of caution though: it is not difficult to accidentally overdose on zinc, and it can do very bad things to you. Some initial symptoms include a runny nose and loss of smell and taste.

      Zicam is fantastic stuff when used as labelled. Squirting it in your nose once an hour or taking too many chew tablets can be really bad for you. My wife made that mistake with the spray.

              The chewable tablets coat your throat and mouth, preventing the virus from attacking there. The spray coats your nasal and sinus. IIRC, direct contact with zinc dismembers the virus. Think like using bug spray.

              My understanding is having higher blood plasma levels of zinc from suppliments has a small benefit making it more difficult for the virus to attach to a cell, but the Quinine causes the zinc levels in the plasma section of a “penetrated” cell, which severely inhibits the virus’ ability to reproduce. So even though the virus attached and injected its RNA, the RNA just sits there and does nothing. — which begs the question: what happens when the zinc level in the cell plasma falls? Does the virus’ RNA load start duplicating? Does HCQ just inhibit the virus RNA replication long enough for one’s immune system to build up and destroy the infected cells? (All above my pay grade.)

    Here it is folks. We knew the Democrats were going to cheat in the November elections. We didn’t know exactly how. Nancy has tipped their hand. She wanted Vote by Mail in the 3rd stimulus and now she’s pushing for it in the next proposed stimulus. Now we have an understanding as to why the Post Office got a big boost in the stimulus package. Forget vote by mail. Let’s get down to this—Election Day. One day. Vote then or request an absentee ballot. None of this multiple week opportunities to cheat by voting in multiple precincts in multiple states. No way to mail in ballots. The Post Office can “lose” ballots for the President and “find” boxes of pre-filled our ballots for the radical leftist/Socialist. Not acceptable.
    I say again. Any dollar, every dollar put into a bill should be required to have attached to it the name(s) of anyone sponsoring that request. No bill should have more than 10 pages total and should be written on an 8th grade reading level or less. Merely typing “to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the Coronavirus” does not make it relevant. Cut out the bull 💩. We need to know who you are and be able to grill you as to why. Any raises in Congressional salary should be nullified and only considered after the unemployment rate has returned to the 2/28/2020 levels and the market has returned to the 2/28/2020 levels.

      Nancy wants to legalize the old-fashioned vote fraud that was rampant in Prohibition-era Chicago, when, among many other things, trucks would unload cloth bags filled with absentee ballots at one polling place after another. Before the bus-loads of homeless people would file in, having been promised a hot meal and a warm place to sleep.

      Hillary. Clinton. Must. Win. Since we know that she cannot win, we must “stuff” the ballot boxes so that she does. We must not presume that electronic voting machines can actually be manipulated to ensure this.

      So that the Deep State can erase all the “unfortunate consequences” of “the Donald Trump Mistake™” and restore American Government to what it “should be.” The American people can continue to be indulged in their ritual of “voting,” but they must never again be allowed to determine the actual(!) outcome, because, as the Deep State clearly realizes, they might make the “wrong” choice. His Imperial Majesty Chairman Xi will not be pleased if this happens again.

Through this ongoing effort, the Department will be able to produce up to 100,000 gallons of hand sanitizer per week. Corcraft, which produces dozens of products, uses the manufacturing process to assist in the department’s overall mission to prepare offenders for release through skill development, work ethic, respect and responsibility.

    Are they short on the supply of hydroxychloroquine or was this just one more Hoax created in order to take President Trump down?

    The Gateway Pundit seems to be saying Hoax. But a Hoax were they seem to be willing to let people die without access to the hydroxychloroquine? This seems extraordinary even for the Socialist.
