    If Fauci were a football coach he would punt on first down every time his team got the ball. The 120-0 loss would just be an offensive “inconvenience”, but he would tell his team “better safe than sorry”.

    I think I have figured out the democrat ploy to keep this going as long as possible.

    When taxes are imposed, it is often stipulated that the money be spent a certain way. Gas taxes are often designated to repair roads etc. In other words, the money raised from taxes is earmarked.

    When states write their bailouts to replace lost tax revenue, it will be disaster money and not earmarked money. Democrats will get a giant slush fund right before the election.

    I’m sorry but I’m going to post this letter on every page to ensure as many people see it and possibly copy and paste it and send it to PT.

    These hydroxychloroquine questions are critical and can not be suppressed.

    Dear Mr. President,

    On behalf of millions of MAGA patriots, we commend you on your nonstop effort to defeat this virus and protect Americans.

    With that said, there are a few critical questions that the American people need answered and included as on going statistics in the daily briefings.

    Specifically,

    1. How many of the 35 million gifted Hydroxychloroquine that Teva, Novartis and Sandoz gave the US, have been actually distributed to hospitals and doctors around the country?

    2. These 35 million doses alone are enough to treat 7M Americans with the once daily for 5 days regime so in essence EVERYONE of the now 250,000 infected CV patients could be treated but yet we are getting reports of hydroxychloroquine shortages – why?

    3. How many CV patients out of the 250,000 infected patients in the US have been hospitalized to date?

    4. How many of these CV hospitalized patients have been given the hydroxychloroquine treatment regime?

    5. And of the CV hospitalized patients who HAVE been given the hydroxychloroquine treatment, how many have recovered or been released from the hospital?

    Mr. President the answers to these questions are critical pieces of information that all Americans deserve to know and be updated on daily going forward via the CV briefing committee.

    Additionally the answers to these questions would go a long way in curbing the fear, panic and anxiety that the media and certain medical officials have created.

    Thank you for all you have done over these past 4 years.

    By far, the best President ever!

    MAGA

      Excellent points, I have wondered on this myself. It’s like we’re in an alternate reality where common sense has been thrown out the window. It makes no logical sense why this and many other obvious points are excluded. Such as… why aren’t we seeing a spike in average deaths per month per state? Shouldn’t these coronavirus deaths be above and behind the normal numbers if it’s a dire threat? These answers and their statistics would quickly dismantle the panic.

      Bill Hemmer was just interviewing a female doctor in NY who has recovered from the corona virus and is getting ready to go back to the trenches.

      NOT ONE QUESTION ASKED RE:

      – What did you use to treat yourself?
      – What will you use in treating your patients?
      – What does your medical expertise tell you about the efficacy of your own treatment?

      Instead, the interview time was used to tug on emotional heartstrings wrt her not being with her children and the propaganda that no one should be seen in public without a mask.

      I do believe there is some reality in this. Even ardent trump supporters I sense are admitting defeat. If the other side can use this pretext to essentially shut us down for months, it shows the true power of the deep state. Many are questioning if getting all that Trump has promised and delivered is worth the price of losing it all in 4 weeks and basically imprisoned. Maybe just let the Dems get back in and this nightmare will be declared over by the experts and the media. Folks, this is the reality showing in the polls even if fabricated.

The fact that to get the economy to a bad place we had to shut EVERYTHING down is a testament to how good Trump helped our economy become. And having tons of people unemployed indefinitely because there are and never will be jobs is much different than having tons of people on unemployment because nobody is allowed to work at all, but the majority (if not all) will be able to work again when things open up.

        Simply asserting the reports are that it is overflowing while a personal visit shows it isn’t – IS NOT ENOUGH

        If you’re going to make such an assertion, you really have got to include a link to a news report that makes the “see, it’s overflowing” claim.

        I have seen several videos where the contrast evidence is provided. And.. several where the videographer / photographer simply asserts such a claim (this one a case-in-point)

        We have to be able to verify the dichotomy.

    I expect to hear this order announced at the presser TODAY.

    Tucker Carlson is right. We’ve been lied to from the beginning. If the medical workers need them, so do the rest of us. We should have been wearing masks since February. And I don’t want to have to run around looking for them. MAIL ME MASKS FOR MY FAMILY. IT’S CHEAPER THAN BAILOUT LOANS. Because if we all wear masks, wash our hands, and keep a reasonable distance, we can all go back to work,. and church, and everything else.

    Here is a suggested letter from PDJT to nancy pelosi:

    Dear Speaker Pelosi,

    The Administration eagerly looks forward to an examination of your House of Representative actions from the inception of the China virus in 2019. How did your House react, and what have been the contributions, proposals, and actions of your House and news media, especially in our large cities which are now centers of infection? (some videos and transcripts attached)

    For example, you and the Mayors of New York and New Orleans were actively encouraging VERY large social gatherings. The news media were criticizing my shutdown of travel from prime Chinese Virus-sources (some videos and transcripts attached), making public compliance more difficult. You personally tore up my State of The Union warning about the Chinese Virus on national television, and instead diverted all House of Representatives and all Congressional attention and capability, on a failed political impeachment rather than seeking ways to help your country (videos attached).

    A careful and complete examination of all House of Representatives activities you deemed more important than contributing to protecting the country from 2019 on, including lack of responsibility and positive action to defend us against this menace from the beginning, is very important for the public to understand.

        Bogey, you are right, we also specifically need to check for all CDC/FDA/NIH ‘collaboration’ with the lying, corrupt WHO which was defending China secrecy, and ignoring Tiawan danger reports. We also need to know what the CDC was doing, and NOT doing. Why no immediate and intense investigation of small-molecule drugs known to moderate and prevent SARS? Why not IMMEDIATELY start to investigate very cheap, well-known drugs such as chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine+zinc, cepharanthine, selamectin, mefloquine hydrochloride, angiotensin receptor 1 (AT1R) blockers such as losartan, etc. KNOWN to block the SARS virus? Why was our CDC and NIH SO FAR BEHIND others? Why are they STILL so far behind? Why didn’t the CDC start to IMMEDIATELY calculate the effective interactions of these and other drugs with the virus spike protein S, and the ACE2 receptors it uses to enter cells, to understand, and improve simple drugs? What work did they actually do, refuse, discourage, or intentionally ignore, in order to focus on very expensive vaccines? What interactions have our CDC and FDA had (with ‘Proprietary Big Pharma, dems in congress, lobbyists…) which would suppress cheap small-molecule drug treatment?

        Is the CDC being so far behind other, smaller countries just a sign of our scientific deterioration and bureaucratic incompetence? Or is it to intentionally support BIG PHARMA against cheap generic drugs? If the CDC is infested with bureaucratic, incompetents who keep their jobs by writing love letters to hillary, it needs to be cleaned out.

        This is a good target for both FOIA, and the NSA database.

    For the past decade, the federal government has been nurturing a group of about 50 epidemiologists and math modelers at universities. The U.S. government launched the effort when it became apparent that U.S. expertise in disease modeling was outstripped by England’s world-class experts, said Dylan George, a former Obama administration official at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy who was involved in that effort.

    Since January, the CDC has been working with that larger group of modeling teams, but it has been unclear, especially in recent weeks, how much the White House was listening to their data and projections

    The deep state and globalist are using everyone possible means, Big pharma, multinational corporation, MSM , elite professionals and politicians….

    What has President Trump exposed… our national security is compromised..

    1. Our supply of national security products is compromised…medications/reagents.
    2. Multi national corporation cannot be counted upon in time of national need.
    3. Medical organization do not act in the best interests or the will of the citizen who pay their wages
    4. Politicians will withhold information to enrich themselves….endanger public to sell stock
    5. Politicians will with hold medical information for political gain… maximize deaths..
    6. Tax payer monies used in bail outs for corporation do not necessarily act in the tax payers behalf.
    7. The stock market fluctuations do not reflect market conditions.. massive manipulation
    8. Companies will sell essential medical products to others nations .for bigger profits..endangering citizens…

    So how does President make lemon aid…
    2 trillion dollars.. going to bring back middle class jobs from China. Invest in manufacturing equipment. (No stock buy backs) thru inexpensive loans and grants
    Big pharma relocated back to United States. US production of raw medical ingredients and medications. Probably thru some executive order or congressional bill.
    FDA..CDC etc. new oversight of big pharma ..cheap immediate solutions…
    2. Trillion dollars in infrastructure… lower production cost
    Infrastructure construction jobs.. good paying jobs…
    And on and on ..

    The main negative .. we will have inflation and things will cost more… but we will be liberating our country from the globalists..

    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/season/flu-season-2017-2018.htm

    “The overall vaccine effectiveness (VE) of the 2017-2018 flu vaccine against both influenza A and B viruses is estimated to be 40%. This means the flu vaccine reduced a person’s overall risk of having to seek medical care at a doctor’s office for flu illness by 40%. Protection by virus type and subtype was: 25% against A(H3N2), 65% against A(H1N1) and 49% against influenza B viruses.”

    An article from the time gathered perspectives from a certain Dr. Fauci connected that bad flu season to “the nature of the most dominant flu strain infecting people—H3N2”:

    https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2018/01/flu-influenza-h3n2-virus-outbreak-vaccine-spd/

    “Flu viruses mutate every year, and it’s common to see several strains of flu during the same season. A similar strain called H1N1 was responsible for the 1918 flu pandemic, and the 2009 “swine flu” outbreak. “H3N2 is historically the bad actor among influenzas,” he says. “It’s also associated with complications.”

    “At best, says Fauci, flu vaccines are only ever about 60 percent effective. While that makes it at least 60 percent more effective than not getting a vaccine at all, it still means the rapidly mutating virus has a fighting chance.”
    Concerning a universal vaccine, “Fauci, too says that some headway has been made, but a universal vaccine is still at least several years in the works.”
    The article adds that “The flu is rarely lethal in healthy individuals”.

    So a known virus for which there was a vaccine proved only 25% effective. Infections, hospitalizations, and deaths upticked from a certain expected figure. As noted in other articles posted recently, emergency rooms had upticks too.

    So what might prove the most effective in attempting to mitigate current and future outbreaks? Is it shutting down massive swaths of the economy and telling healthy and recovered people they can’t work unless by autocratic decree of essentialness, especially when the current strain overwhelmingly evinces morbidity at its highest percentages in the elderly and immune compromised?

    Is it justifying persistence of such by implying any continued association of cases and deaths equates to unacceptable risk even when precedent shows that tens of thousands of deaths and tens of millions of viral infections annually continue to be part of life? Or could we try to promote the same common sense that’s called for each cold and flu season — especially those at risk — without forecasting worst case scenarios that may not match current realities or depriving all but the well-connected from liberty and the pursuit of happiness?

    We all know that as soon as President Trump calls a halt, the MSM will go nuts and push the lie that “he only cares about BIG BUSINESS making money, he doesn’t care about YOU, THE LITTLE GUY! HE WANTS YOU TO DIE!”

    But The Little Guy wants his life back!!! I honestly do not know what to think about the direction the president is taking: “Very soon, very soon we’ll be back to normal, and the economy will take off!” And yet governors like RINO DeWIne of Ohio keep talking about May or June or July!

    Does he really believe these projections? Various mathematicians are calling them bogus on logical grounds.

    And…since when do we shut down the country for a disease LESS LETHAL than other diseases which we shrug at and ignore, but deal with it whenever it comes?

      Then show of those given Hydroxychloroquine, how many or what percent have recovered or been released.

      If this percentage is anywhere near 50% or above – IMO a HUGE HOME RUN

      Think about the immediate calm this would bring and how this 3 ingredient HC treatment could be used as a strong preventative thus allowing Americans to go back to work.

      Well, for a very long time now, the Actual President has not publicly said any such thing.

      And – I really do not expect this man to “throw any of his advisors nor subordinates under the bus.” Instead, when the time comes (and, “if it does”), I fully expect him to “own the outcome” himself.

      I still do not believe, and choose not to believe, that either this President nor any of the advisers who surround him acted duplicitously. Even though I now believe that “their conclusions were desperately wrong,” I will give them the benefit that their intentions were surely pure.

        That said earlier today I ran into lady ( late fifties) in a local grocery store. We know each other from a community group.

        She’s a decent sort, but although we have never talked politics she would be pegged as a Trudeau supporting sheep.

        She looked out of sorts, so I said hullo. Our chat was cordial, she was relaxed and thanked me for stopping.

        Then she changed. She raised her voice and exclaimed “ did you see what that Trump did with 3M”

        I just shook my head, the vitriol was something to see. She spewed all the globalist talking points..how 3M, China, Germany and of course our Canada.

        My reply was polite. But defended PDJTs position. Got her to acknowledge that the Chinese lied, and are continuing to lie.

        That Trudeau should have closed flights from China.

        I post this just to highlight the power of the MSM, and that we that care about PDJT should never forget that.

        This is another opportunity for President Trump to bring up in pressers and in the campaign going forward. The complainer governors are for the most part from Democrat states who are caught unprepared for executing basic duties in the case of emergency.

But it won’t stop Russia & as we’re all at home not driving and using oil/gas those drillers and the support industries are going to be wiped out. This is a national security issue. This home arrest hoax, that HRC’s henchman Fauci has perpetrated on us, needs to stop now. You can tell that it was a set up by Politico’s reporting. I go there for an alternative view (can’t do CNN) and find articles of what the true agenda is: They started the covid19 to take down Trump. It’s working because his base – small business owners – have been $$ decimated and then incarcerated under house arrest. The civil war happened without a shot fired. All the wealth from Trump’s middle class supporters has gone away. And we’re not allowed to gather to talk about it or go out on the street to protest it. 24/7 news keeps everyone revved up like its a cat 5 hurricane but we’re just getting some heavy rain. Healthcare lost 42,500 jobs in the last report. Why? Nobody can do regular business. Everything is geared toward flu,colds, covid19. or stress.
    I better hear an end date that’s the start of May. Pelosi has piped up with “rolling” lock downs. There won’t be any long lines at Costco in a month. There won’t be an economy. Because of HRC/Fauci, Pelosi. And it doesn’t matter how many $1,200 checks given a month per person. The money can’t be printed out of thin air forever. The last trenche boosted the national debt to 30% of GDP. /endrant
