NEC Director Larry Kudlow Discusses Economy and Unemployment…

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow appears on Fox News to answer Sandra Smith’s dramatic questions about the U.S. economy collapsing and “dropping into the deepest recession in U.S. history.” The Trump administration has devoted enormous resources to the COVID-19 stimulus package to keep families and small businesses afloat amid the coronavirus outbreak.

.

Meanwhile Bill Hemmer is waxing philosophically about hearing the sounds of birds in Manhattan for the first time in generations and what that means to America.  According to the knucklehead COVID-19 appears to be forcing planet earth to heal itself from a parasitic human society that lost connection to their deeper selves.

Meanwhile on CNN Chris Cuomo and Brooke Baldwin play the role of “influencers” for the WHO; selling with dramatic flare what it’s like to cope with Coronavirus, and how that changes you as a person to become more deep and connected to your center sphere… It’s a level of enlightenment only possible through the virus.

Friggin’ nuts.

All of this.

    There is nothing we have experienced directly or have been credibly told by any level of government, even by DJT, to justify what is being done to us and our economy. Our economy is us, that is what gives us freedom! Giving up our economy is like checking ourselves into prison…

    Again, if the campaign is protracted, the resources of the State will not be equal to the strain. Now, when your weapons are dulled, your ardor damped, your strength exhausted and your treasure spent, other chieftains will spring up to take advantage of your extremity.,b> Then no man, however wise , will be able to avert the consequences that must ensue.

        It wasn’t bad enough in Ohio. Gov. Dewine has now limited how many people can go into the grocery stores at a time. Now Ohioans can stand six feet apart for hours in long lines to hopefully get a few bites of whatever food is left when their turn comes. We aren’t going to see his ass standing in line though. He’s the lawd and mastah.

          I had enough of DeWine from the first wave of his shutdown. I gave him a little slack after seeing that the President seemed to be all in on these orders. Limiting the number who can be in the store is the last straw. We are being treated like children. I haven’t noticed any crowding in the stores after the initial panic day. Everyone has been politely keeping their 6ft. distance. It’s almost like some of these governors get a rush out of decreeing a new mandate. They’re like addicts.

      Thanks to PDJT:

      (1) our weapons are NOT dulled, but the best in the world, and have been recently upgraded and updated thanks to his foresight (look, he has been openly aggressive towards the Chinese almost from Day 1, basically telling them that we’re going to take their livelihood away, first with tariffs, and then by taking all those manufacturing jobs back, and he KNEW that he needed a strong military in place to deter what is a typical response to economic hardship: war

      (2) I don’t know about YOU, JohnCasper, but my ardor could not be LESS damped now than at almost any other time in my life! Is this a scary time? To be sure. I’m a small business owner. But guess what? I’d rather crawl over broken glass on my bare hands and knees with PDJT leading the way than with any other person alive. He WILL get us through this, intact, and even better than before;

      (3) our strength hasn’t even been tested yet, let alone exhausted! we go through two world wars during which in those darkest of days the survival of not just ours, but every republic in the world was in questions;

      (4) our treasure isn’t spent – far from it;

      (5) everything PDJT and Pence have been doing and saying the past three years have been in preparation for something like this (Calm Before the Storm tweet from 2017, Pence telling Naval Academy grads that they WILL fight on a battlefield in their careers, rebuilding the military, redrafting NAFTA to protect our economy from China-dumping, tariffs, trade agreements with new and more friendly allies; because PDJT has been openly challenging the status quo, and typically, historically, that CAN, can lead to conflict, so best be prepared, eh?

      Buck up, little camper. We have a real team of leaders at the helm. Nothing has stopped them thus far (and we KNOW the other side has tried to derail him), and nothing is going to, because he is acting from a position of love and compassion for his fellow man/woman, and love conquers all (it DOES help that we have a kick ass military!)

          What did Jesus say to his disciples when they awoke him, afraid, scared, as he slept in a boat during a storm?

          He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” And they were filled with great awe and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”

      Just what I was going to write about. Waiting in line at post office, reminded about my 6’ distance by caution tape on floor, to see a clerk who now is behind plexiglass like at a bank. PSA regarding the virus playing.

      Same kind of PSA playing in the Walmart grocery parking lot. Not even inside the store.

      And our AZ governor just furthered his stay at home order to close barber shops and all the benches and seating at parks. Our local police posting on facebook that they aren’t stopping and asking for papers. But, they will arrest or cite flagrant violators. Maybe it’s time to be arrested and fight whatever charge they bring against me on constitutional grounds. What law can you point me to that says I can’t leave my house officer ? Or sit on a bench at a park? Show me the statute that was passed by the legislature and signed into law by the governor. That will be in your arrest report, officer.

      Some if not all of this has to be unconstitutional. It’s sickening.

        Felt the same way until I found our state statute “Ciivil Preparedness And Emergency Orders”. Statute gives governor enormous power to limit travel, etc. I was stunned. Governor can do almost as he pleases. Some violations are felonies with up to 5 years prison. What BS! I thought.

        Then I recalled my WWII history. Government ordered people to black out their windows. Rationed food, gas, cigarettes. And more. Granted, I believe states pushing this stay at home crapola to see how much they can get away with, silently telling Americans “We’re your masters, you must obey.” All another effort to get Trump or win 2020, or both.

        My state just issued ‘no non-necessary travel, no vacationing in hotels (reserved for CV workers)’ etc. I’m doing what I want anyway, but if LE stops me I understand they have a statute to fall back on. I don’t.

No commentary on data, how death statistics are being withheld, mis-reported, how the criteria was changed for covid-19 death reporting.

          Interesting that the woman Doctor yesterday said there weren’t any therapeutics currently available. Even though the third part cocktail has over 2300 doctors world wide say this is the best.

          Interesting that Jared was looking at the model assumptions, the good doctors didn’t appear very happy yesterday.
          Today the woman Doctor was starting to rip the WHO, and Jim Ascosta?.. started interrupting her.

          Also, an Oracle portal was opened where Doctors on the front lines can add information on what appears to be helping (the three part cocktail IMHO) This will give more data, forget double blind study. Not much money on 40 plus year old drugs.
          N.Y. City has a Hospital ship, 1000 beds, 3 or 15 patients, model stated much more.

          Believe that PDJT, threw a huge monkey wrench into the next chapter of Orange Man Bad. When he closed the border from China. The seeding did not progress, as far as it should have. The model IMHO just assumed greater seeding, your overwhelming most if not all of society’s safety nets., disheartened masses, and panic.

          Media is not helping, or maybe as people see how useless they are. The Globalist, 3M, much is being revealed.

    Trumps pattern is always the same. He gives the enemy all the rope they need to hang themselves. We are getting closer to that inflection point. There is no crisis for healthy people. 99% of deaths are from old fat people who sit on their ass and eat too much. They already have a weak immune system.

    Trillions of dollars is really trillions of pennies. The dollar as we knew it doesn’t exist anymore, it is just paper with a picture on it.

    I just spent $19,500. to extend the power line 3900 feet to my new home. In 1970 that equates to $540. Who frigging cares about money anymore. The damage is already done.
