      If you think President Trump has problems… I took a look at the projected needs graphs for New York… hospital bed shortage 63,000…icu bed shortage 11,000… days till peak….7 days…

      Now you know why President Trump sent the beds to New York …Now you know why President Trump sent the Military doctors and nurses to man the hospitals… total deaths…. 16,200….

      That’s right…years of corruption… lack of planning….funding… is all comming due in 7 days…

      Pelosi starting an investigation on President Trump corona virus response… get ready …. not the democratic mayor not the democratic Governor, not the democratic senators… none are responsible…we depended on the President of the United States Donald J Trump…
      But then they were all busy with the impeachment of President Trump… didn’t have time to look after their own constituents….. even though they had congressional briefings on the Chinese virus risk…..

            Do you believe in all of NYC there would be no normal patients with regular problems each night?

            I was admitted to Bellevue Hospital one night at 8PM. There were at least 50 people there. In ER.

            Why are there no regular cases showing up at the ship if the city is so backlogged with China Virus problems?

        Those projections use the IMHE model which is wildly inaccurate. In New York, the IMHE model predicted that as of yesterday, 50,962 people would have been hospitalized due to the Coronavirus. The actual number was 18,368.

        NY released data on the COVID-19 deaths by age and condition. https://market-ticker.org/akcs-www?post=238773 as of 4/2/2020 a total of 18 people without an underlying condition out of 1397 have died. 14 men and 4 women that had no underlying condition out of 1397 deaths. 1% of the deaths were men with no underlying condition and 0.3% were women with no underlying condition.

        Not exactly scary numbers for folks with no underlying conditions No one in NYC under 17 has died as of 4/2/2020 and 1397 deaths.

          President Trump was screamed at to let the scientist/doctors do the talking so he did. The President is giving them enough rope to hang themselves. The real numbers won’t lie.

          New York mocked the early warnings and they are paying the very sad consequences. But with the mitigating being done now, it will save many lives. Let’s hope doctors are using the anti-malaria drugs to save even more lives despite non-medical orders not to. How dare mere politicians practice medicine.

            Identity Politics Lied. New Yorkers Died
            How identity politics pseudoscience left New York exposed to the Coronavirus
            https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/04/identity-politics-lied-new-yorkers-died-daniel-greenfield/

            Discusses the role of woke politics in exacerbating the epidemic, including the Health Commissioner encouraging the Chinese New Year parade and being more concerned about “stigma” than spread of the disease

            “As we gear up to celebrate the #LunarNewYear in NYC, I want to assure New Yorkers that there is no reason for anyone to change their holiday plans, avoid the subway, or certain parts of the city because of #coronavirus,” she insisted.

            By then there had already been over 17,000 cases of the Wuhan Virus in China with nearly 3,000 new cases in one day. For the first time, someone outside Mainland China had died of the disease.

            Manhattan’s Chinatown, where Barbot had appeared, is one of the densest parts of the city. The old core community where the Lunar New Year celebration is based is a maze of cramped tenements, narrow streets, tiny stores whose counters extend far into the street, and other unsafe conditions

            Barbot went on urging people to participate in the parade while spreading misinformation about the risk. “You won’t get it merely from riding the subways – you get it from secretions,” she even claimed.

            The commissioner went on with the happy talk in March.

            After the first coronavirus case in the city, she claimed that “disease detectives” would prevent the spread of the coronavirus and that New Yorkers were “at low risk”.

            “As we confront this emerging outbreak, we need to separate facts from fear, and guard against stigma and panic,” Commissioner Barbot signed off: warning that the real enemy was prejudice.

            “There’s no indication that being in a car, being in the subways with someone who’s potentially sick is a risk factor,” she told New Yorkers.

    ***Today’s WeBuildTheWall / Fisher Industries posts***
    (Previous posts: https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2020/04/02/april-2nd-2020-presidential-politics-trump-administration-day-1169/comment-page-1/#comment-8014155)

    Note: Most of the WBTW related social media accounts are covering coronavirus, politics, or illegal alien crimes. We will probably be in a quiet period regarding wall content until the next project(s) are near completion.
    The praises (much of which are older news) have been provided for those who wish to give thanks for them before praying for the wall prayer requests. I may add to, trim back, or simplify from time to time as projects/events progress or come to completion. If there is any new wall news I’ll list them in the update below. Otherwise, feel free to page down or scroll past.

    Wednesday night update – 4/1/20 – (See link above.)

    – Brietbart article (& audio interview): HUD Secretary Carson: Quickly Evolving Coronavirus Treatments Could Change Landscape ‘In the Next Week or Two’
    – Article about 95 year old Veteran beating Coronavirus.

    – – – – –
    Thursday night update – 4/2/20

    – Misc. content.

    – – – – –
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 1: May/June 2019)… WBTW/Fisher Industries was able to build a half mile wall up the side of a mountain in 11 days (with zero safety incidents), cutting off 19 major drug cartel trails, and closing off one of the worst areas along the border… (Sunland Park, NM)
    ***Praise: 👍 (11/20/19)… DHS Secretary Chad Wolf & CBP Chief gave a huge endorsement to WeBuildTheWall while visiting Project 1. CBP Chief called it a “Game Changer”. It’s the only time CBP or DHS have ever endorsed a wall builder.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (12/2/19)… Fisher Sand & Gravel was awarded a $400M border wall contract to build 31 miles of wall in the Cabeza Prieta National Wildlife Refuge in Yuma County, Arizona.
    (Fisher receives $268M of this $400M project)(Estimated contract completion date is Dec 30, 2020.)

    ***Praise: (12/4/19)… Brian Kolfage & his family were given the opportunity to visit the White House.
    ***Praise: While the Temporary Restraining Order(s) were in place, Fisher Industries and crews were still able to keep working on some aspects of Project 2 from the Dec. 5th hearing to Dec 12th (after which they were off for the holidays).
    ***Praise: (Jan 3)… Judge Crane lifted/removed section 8b from the TRO so that Fisher was able to continue to “shave, grade, or cut the riverbank.”
    ***Praise: (Jan 9)… Judge Crane lifted/removed the TROs from both the Federal government’s lawsuit (on behalf of the IBWC) and the North American Butterfly Association’s lawsuit (on behalf of Marianna Trevino-Wright’s National Butterfly Center) against Fisher Sand and Gravel Co.
    ***Praise: 🧱 (Project 2 complete: Feb 17)… Fisher Industries was able to build 3.5 miles of wall along the Rio Grande River in Mission, Texas. Project 2’s “water wall” design is the first border wall that’s ever been built inside the flood plain.

    ***Praise: 🔍 (Reported on 12/18/19)… Senator Kevin Cramer was able to complete his in-depth review of the USACE’s procurement process and send a letter with his findings and recommendations to President Trump on 12/6/19.
    ***Praise: (Feb 6)… Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill, HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona, passed AZ House on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    🙏 Prayer for the work crews. 🙏
    Heavenly Father, we pray in Jesus’ name:
    – for safety and health for the work crews and their families while they stay home during the temporary work shutdown; for safety and good weather for the work crews when they start up work again on Project 3, 4, & 5; that they would be able to continue uninterrupted until completion
    – for healing of Amanda Shea’s 14 year old son who has Covid-19.

    – for WBTW/Fisher Industries regarding the ongoing lawsuits; that the lawsuits would be dismissed.
    (Feb 5)… Judge Randy Crane granted a 60-day extension to all parties. The three sides will reconvene on April 8.
    – that WBTW would be able to find corporate sponsors for Project 3. (They already have a major construction equipment manufacturer and are looking for a solar LED security lighting manufacturer or supplier.)

    – that the DoD IG’s office audit of the $400 million border wall contract which the USACE awarded Fisher Sand & Gravel would show everything is fair and above board; that the swamp in DoD and USACE wouldn’t be able to corrupt the process; & that Fisher would be authorized to proceed with the project as planned.

    – that Rep. Warren Petersen’s (R-AZ) bill,HB 2084, making it easier to build border wall on private property in Arizona would get passed.
    (Feb 6)… The bill passed AZ house on reconsideration with 31-29 party line vote. Next, it goes to the Senate.

    – for the bi-national summit with the Mexican IBWC and American politicians that WBTW will be hosting; for open lines of communication/understanding; and that WBTW/Fisher Industries would learn what they need to know to facilitate the sign off and approval of their projects by the Mexican IBWC.

    – for 100% safety/health/guidance/direction for the work crews, security personnel, legal teams, CBP, DHS, Army and all involved in Project’s 2, 3, 4, 5 and other projects; and for WBTW/Fisher Industries as they work with private landowners to secure more property to build on
    – that work would go smoothly with continual, innovative improvements in method/process/efficiency and quality of construction; and with transitioning as they scale up capacity(manpower, equipment, etc.) to build larger projects
    – that there would be no outside interference (cartels, IBWC, courts/judges, protesters, swamp, etc.) and that if outside interference takes place that it would only work toward WBTW/Fisher Industries/USA’s benefit (exposing corruption, raising awareness, fundraising, etc.)

    – that Project 2’s wall will prove that the design is sound and that WBTW/Fisher Industries are capable of safely and effectively building it on a large scale in the Rio Grande Valley, with a superior build, at the lowest price
    – that the federal government would provide funding for WBTW/Fisher Industries to build 250+ miles of wall on Private Property in Texas
    – that the Government would purchase all of WBTW/Fisher Industries projects so the funds can be rolled into future projects and Fisher Industries will be able to scale up with additional equipment and manpower as needed.

    🌟 “The more that a broken system tells you that you’re wrong, the more certain you must be that you must keep pushing ahead. Because it’s the outsiders who change the world and will make a real and lasting difference. Nothing worth doing ever came easy. Treat the word impossible as nothing more than motivation.” ~ President Donald J. Trump 🌟

              As I have stated elsewhere, we “deal with” all islamic nations and groups at our peril given the reality that islam itself (not merely the “flavor of the month” extremist individual, group or nation) is our implacable and existential enemy.

              While we may from time to time use a given islamic nation or group for our own realpolitik purposes, that does not mean we should ever forget the true nature of and threat posed by all of islam. As such, we should be very circumspect about sharing intel and never provide military or military-convertible equipment, technology or training since there is no guarantee it will not be later used against us or our true allies.

              We have repeatedly seen the folly of doing this—the most recent being Barack Hussein Obama’s allying with “islamic moderates” in the civil war in Syria against Assad. He secretly armed and trained these “moderates” using US special forces in Jordan (to circumvent His own embargo against military aid to rebels IN Syria itself) and soon after they were deployed into Syria they joined ISIS and provided the military core to that ruthless group that enabled it to achieve such sweeping victories early on in ISIS’ onslaught.

              Islamists are not our “friends.” They will use whatever means necessary to further jihad, including feigned friendship, and as troubling for America domestically, migration into infidel countries to undermine their political and social institutions as demonstrated by the likes of Tlaib and Omar.

            We really can’t know how much HUMIT Saudi agents or operatives are supplying to our intel people about activities all over Central Asia, but I would bet it is considerable and I would bet it has saved far more lives, including American, than we know. I suspect that if we had as strong of relationship with Saudi Arabia back in 1983 as we have now, 220+ Marines and Sailors and 70+, French troops wouldn’t have been blown to high heaven.

            Intel is key, not only for protecting our troops but also for getting our real enemies and no infidel can penetrate the inner sanctum of the various Muslim terrorist groups like one of their own can.

              A thoughtful post but I remain adamant that as long as we continue to fool ourselves (and our own government is complicit in fostering this lie) that the “islamic problem” is limited to a few “Muslim terrorist groups,” as you describe the threat, we completely misperceive the true nature and extent of the islamic threat.

              Having studied in depth islam, and actually lived with and fought islamists in the ME, SWA and Africa, I am wholly persuaded that the true threat is islam itself and not “merely” some subset of “extremists.” Thus, to “ally” with any islamic nation or group in the sense we are now doing with SA, Turkey, Iraq, Afghanistan and myriad groups and factions is folly.

              While I accept a part of your premise that we can derive intel from islamists as to other islamists etc., it does not necessarily follow that we get in bed with them to the extent we have currently. If we were honest we would see the many instances where doing so has backfired on us, just as it did in Beirut as you noted.

              If we “deal” with islamist nations or groups we need to treat them as we would a poisonous snake that has no scruples and will as readily bite us as not. Islam (not just islamic extremists) is an existential threat to America and our way of life. Jihad is real, worldwide and immutable in its stated end state—the establishment of a totalitarian, all-encompassing and violent ideology (not a mere “religion”) in a global caliphate where ALL infidels are either subjugated or killed.

                This is unconventional war and in that realm, more often than in conventional warfare, one often has to deal with criminals or other entities that do not totally align with ones own objectives totally and would normally be repugnant to be associated with in any way.

                The division between the Sunni and Shia cause us no end of problems, but you find the field and players as it is, and that division also provides great opportunities as well as keeping the Muslims from uniting in a true Caliphate to present a united front.

                  I suppose we must generally agree to disagree but there are points of agreement in that I agree we need to “interact” with islamic nations and groups BUT with the firm knowledge and appreciation of the grim reality that we are doing so with a mortal enemy (the very same approach I advocate with COMMUNIST (see what I did there?) China and any other existential enemy).

                  It is this VITAL aspect that we seem to either no longer believe or merely ignore to the point of forgetting. We need look no further than our own nation and government to see this incredibly dangerous phenomenon being played out.

                  Most Americans have apparently assumed there is no real threat from islam, having bought the abject lie of pro-islamists, as reinforced incredibly by our own government, dimocrats and republicans alike that the “islamic problem” is “merely” a “few” extremist groups. Even if that was true, a “few,” let’s just use 1% (actual estimates are as high as 10%+) of the total islamic population, that equates to some 15-20 million!

              I urge you to study islam a bit more. Any “respect” or “coexistence” is merely transitory in the larger timeline that islamists use. Westerners, and especially Americans it seems with attention spans in nanoseconds, fail till appreciate that our existential enemies like COMMUNIST China and Islam, play the (very) long game—3 dimensional chess if you will, while we mainly play checkers.

              To think ANY islamist (by that I mean “true” to the Koran) is honestly willing to coexist in peace with infidels is a fool’s errand. The real frustration I have with all of this is that islamists are actually telling us this both in word and deed and we continue to either ignore it as we are just far too busy with important things like sports and fake reality shows about tigers etc., or we see it but filter it through our Western assumptions and delude ourselves into thinking islamists are really, deep down, “just like us” and are rational, reasonable people who just happen to be “held down” by injustice, prejudice etc. GWB and others suffer greatly from this total illusion, with their ill-fated “nation-building” strategy predicated on the ridiculous notion that if we just “scratch hard enough” on islamists, a compassionate, rational and mankind-loving westerner will show through.

      From another tweet about TRUMP campaign:

      “…Since last Thursday, President Trump’s reelection campaign has been calling up local restaurants and ordering large amounts of food to be delivered to more than a dozen hospitals in New York, New Jersey, Washington state and Michigan. The campaign has been placing these orders anonymously, but Fox News learned about the effort — and sources confirmed it.

       

      One source told Fox News that the campaign was looking to not only express gratitude for first responders treating patients with COVID-19, but to support local restaurants.

       

      “They’re doing it as a donor who cares,” one source told Fox News. “So nothing politically is tied to it. … We’re just trying to, you know, show a thank you. They’re trying to send things that are like, local restaurants that may need support and cool restaurant icons of the area that may need the business,” one source said.

       

      The source told Fox News that the campaign has already spent tens of thousands of dollars on the effort, which they plan to expand in the coming days and weeks.

       

      Fox News confirmed that as part of the donations, an anonymous individual placed a large order at Giovanni’s Italian Deli in Secaucus, N.J., to be delivered to Hudson Regional Hospital.

       

      “They only told us their first name,” an employee of Giovanni’s told Fox News on Thursday. “They called us, and they had us donate meals for the nurses and doctors — an assortment of things, 40 platters of pasta, salads, sandwiches.”

       

      The employee added: “We’re happy to do it. Trust me.”

       

      Sources told Fox News that the campaign also ordered from Nick’s Grill in Kirkland, Wash.; Chit Chat Diner in Morristown, N.J.; Turning Point of Long Branch, N.J.; and Antonio’s Trattoria in the Bronx, N.Y., among others.

       

      The manager of Antonio’s Trattoria, in an interview with Fox News, said that a man called the restaurant Monday to have “100 individual orders” delivered to Lincoln Hospital in the Bronx.

       

      “It was 20 penne vodkas, 20 pastas with tomato sauce, 30 chicken parmesans, and 30 house salads with grilled chicken,” the manager told Fox News. “He only gave his first name and said he wanted to remain anonymous.”

       

      When told that it was a member of the Trump campaign supporting their business and the hospital, the manager said: “That’s awesome. That’s great. That’s really great, thank you.”

       

      And an Instagram post from the Chit Chat Diner said: “An anonymous donation providing lunch to some hardworking staff at Hackensack Hospital this afternoon. We are so grateful.”

    Today I once again heard some progressive talking head accuse Texas Attorney General, Dan Patrick of saying old people should “sacrifice” themselves so that we can have a robust economy. What he said, in fact, was that as a person turning 70 he realized that people his age were in a different category for virus infection than younger people.

    His simple suggestion that the nation could go back to work while older Americans should take appropriate precautions until the virus dissipates. For making this perfectly logical comment, he has been vilified by the progressive left for not insisting that our current “one-size fit all” approach to virus containment should continue—apparently well into next year. Doing this, even for a few more weeks will do irreparable damage to our economy, something that I think the progressive/fascist left eagerly wants to happen.

    The only person who can stop this nonsense is President Trump. He must act now to put Americans back to work so that the economy can repair itself. If he doesn’t do this—and soon—the country’s looking at an economic disaster.

        If we are talking about a 4 week window I don’t disagree with your suggestions. However, it appears that Trump’s public health advisers apparently want to extend the national shut-down well past that time. This is where Ken Paxton’s (echoing DJT’s earlier comments btw) make sense. A better long-term solution, IMHO, is to recognize the young/old difference and allow the 80% of Americans who are less vulnerable to the virus’s drastic effects to return to work (thereby saving the economy) while simultaneously encouraging us more vulnerable geezers to take the special precautions necessary to keep us safe. Insisting that everyone do this over a longer run, just strikes me as counterproductive.

    I have to make a statement as regards to the 3M posts. Many commenters were saying that 3M plants in the PRC were nationalised, ‘seized’ and so on. They were not. No need to do that as it would be theft. What the PRC did was to put export restrictions on their product. That is why it is important that our medical supply chains are secure and in the US. Other countries that the PRC wants to punish or bribe are feeling the heat or getting their ‘largesse’ .

      A very interesting point, A2! It made me revisit Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s famous book, The Black Swan – in particular Chapter 10: “The Scandal of Prediction.” Here’s an excerpt:

      “In the not too distant past, say the precomputer days, projections remained vague and qualitative, one had to make a mental effort to keep track of them, and it was a strain to push the scenarios into the future. It took pencils, erasers, reams of paper, and huge wastebaskets to engage in the activity. Add to that an accountant’s love for slow tedious work. The activity of projecting was effortful, undesirable, and marred with self-doubt.

      But things changed with the intrusion of the spreadsheet. When you put an Excel spreadsheet into computer-literate hands you get a “sales projection” effortlessly extending ad infinitum! Once on a page or on a computer screen, or worse, in a PowerPoint presentation, the projection takes on a life of its own, losing its vagueness and abstraction and becoming what philosophers call reified, invested with concreteness; it takes on a new life as a tangible object.”

      To illustrate Taleb’s point in just two words: Paul Krugman!

      I am not on Word Press and have to manually type the email every time I post. Sometimes I make a typo in doing so and don’t catch it before I hit send. Happened just above but Ad Rem removed it.

      I used to be able to catch it because when I typed in the correct email, the avatar changed to my usual one. Now it won’t change at all, and I can’t easily see if the email address is typed in correctly. I just have to wait and see if the post shows up.

      So right now the avatar on my typing screen has been this sea green face with a crooked mouth and googly eyes on a brown background and it won’t change even if I type in the correct address.

      Has it been proven that the Kennedy Center also funneled $5M to the DNC?

        According to the recording, the Kennedy Center will shut down anyway. The money allocated to them will not even be enough. Arranging deck chairs on the Titanic again.

        Along with the garlic, eat a bunch of White Castle hamburgers and you will be SAFE!

        When I was a teenager I got up one morning after having eaten a bunch of those tasty little burgers the night before. I sat on the edge of the bed, all sleepy and such, and farted. Couple of seconds later I had to move to the other side of the room. Couple seconds after that I had to LEAVE my own room!

        Yep. White Castle burgers are great, and they are impressive for social distancing!

        If you don’t believe me just ask me!!!

      Lol, bertdilbert😂 when I was in high school a rival girls b-ball team would not shower or use deodorant a few days before a game to make it super gross to cover them. 🤢 they sucked. I could see that tactic majorly helping social distancing

        I’m afraid to wonder if a coach sold them on that idea or if one of the girls did. Wow!

        You know, you’d think after awhile that if they kept losing they would clean up their act. I can’t imagine parents going for that!

    How many here are allowed to study the Bible for themselves? Perhaps referring to the original Hebrew and Greek?

    Have you ever noticed that the state of the world at the arrival of Christ in Matthew 24 bears no resemblance to the world at His arrival in Revelation 14?

    So what does that tell you?

    The next arrival of Christ will be in a time of relative peace, of buying and selling, marrying and giving in marriage … basically Normal times.

    And the Normal times are just about to END. WITHOUT all of the signs and events of Revelation!

    OK people. Its time to remember what the other side taught us: “Never let a crisis go to waste!”

    Over the next week or two, the dim & LSM response to CCPV19, attacking our civil liberties, making massive power grabs and squeezeing the US tax payer tit for everything they can squeeze out will be fully exposed.

    The people disproportionally mal-affected are soon to be ex-dims. We need to make a major effort to help them see the light, and revolt against the DNC!!!

    Saddle up, and execute. MAGA!

        A “four star grunt”. That was educational. Particularly the part about the General telling the PFC that if you really want to know what’s going on ask the lower ranked enlisted men because they have no rank to lose and will tell you the truth.

        I had a Drill Sgt tell us the importance of obeying General Orders no matter what, no matter who.

        He was guarding an area where classified info was stored and exchanged. His Colonel came late at night and told him to get out of the way he had to get something. The Drill Sgt was a Private at the time. He said “Sir, you know I can’t let you in” and told him to go through the authorized process to get in. The Colonel got mad and started yelling threats. The Private told him again to go through the authorized process to get in. Colonel yelled more threats. Private loaded a round in his rifle and told the Colonel to go through the authorized process. Colonel took a step toward him and the Private fired a round over his head.

        Colonel peed himself.

        People showed up. Colonel got in trouble. Private was told he did the right thing.

        1st General Order:

        “I will Guard everything within the limits of my post and quit my post only when properly relieved.”

        Funny how that stuff stays with you.

    Did anyone watch Ingram angle interview with Mark China Cubin? Imho he’s the next Democrat hopeful. He’s been on nightly faux media since the BS started and before. I think y’all need to pay attention to this Democrat. He/they knows he’s the last hope for Dims and the only one who can steal black voters thru basketball imho. In case you don’t know he’s a Democrat globalist and despises my President.

    Press has chosen a new issue to shriek about:

    ‘It’s a joke’: NYC health execs express fury that 1,000 bed USNS Comfort has only 20 patients on board because of red tape, while cornavirus crisis rages in NYC with 51,809 cases and 1,562 deaths
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8182883/The-1-000-bed-Comfort-accepted-3-patients-despite-crisis-New-York-City.html

    The hospital ship has accepted just 20 patients so far as the Navy says it will only take non-coronavirus patients

    The USNS Comfort in California has also only accepted 15 patients

    Capt. Patrick Amersbach, the commanding officer of the medical personnel aboard the Comfort, has said that the crew will continue to follow orders to treat only non-coronavirus cases until they are told otherwise.

    ‘If our mission shifts, we do what we can to meet that mission,’ he said.

    As reported by the New York Times, an outbreak on board the Comfort would be disastrous and would quickly spread, cutting off the ship’s operations.

    … much more at the article, including a grim portrayal of the situation at NYC hospitals and morgues, which are over-capacity and body bags are being kept in refrigerated trucks for 4+ days.

    AP Breaking: Washington – The WH is expected to release today new social distancing guidelines, according to sources familiar with the CDC.

    Underarm deodorants (aerosols) long suspected to cause climate change will be banned and removed from shelves as Americans are now required to eat more garlic to aid in natural social distancing.

    Dr Fauci was not available for comment, but his assistant told one of his friends he approved this message.

    To remind everyone: FLOOD the White House with “END THIS BY APRIL 15TH! ” messages! Pass it on to everyone through every means at your disposal!

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/

    You will of course receive a form e-mail as a response: “Thank you etc.” Yet if the bean counters at the White House notice a surge in exasperation, we could influence the direction and the speed of this nightmare.
