      There is no defense. It’s irrational. It’s infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions. (Pretty crude, rude and mean, huh? They want to create anger and fear.)

      Because it removes the foundation of destroying our economy and keep President Trump from being reelected.

      That’s why our #1 focus should be to promote the cure. If we can get it applied, then the country can be back open.

    So i posted the zero hedge article on this and this is where Navarro downplays the heated exchange.
    So it sounds like Navarro was justified in his position. Fauci’s position was not taking into consideration of the state of war we are in. So Fauci, is in fact a dumbass plant IMO.

    “History Will Judge”

    https://www.zerohedge.com/health/peter-navarro-explodes-faucci-heated-showdown-over-hydroxychloroquine

    “Navarro started raising his voice, and at one point accused Fauci of objecting to Trump’s travel restrictions, saying, “You were the one who early on objected to the travel restrictions with China,” saying that travel restrictions don’t work. (Navarro was one of the earliest to push the China travel ban.)

    Fauci looked confused, according to a source in the room. After Trump imposed the travel restrictions, Fauci has publicly praised the president’s restriction on travel from China.

    Pence was trying to moderate the heated discussion. “It was pretty clear that everyone was just trying to get Peter to sit down and stop being so confrontational,” said one of the sources.

    Eventually, Kushner turned to Navarro and said, “Peter, take yes for an answer,” because most everyone agreed, by that time, it was important to surge the supply of the drug to hot zones.

    The principals agreed that the administration’s public stance should be that the decision to use the drug is between doctors and patients.

    Trump ended up announcing at his press conference that he had 29 million doses of hydroxychloroquine in the Strategic National Stockpile.”

        I will say this another way, double blind tests are only one way of many to show a drug works. In the case of life and death there are other ways to show a drug works without 50% of the patients dying because they got the placebo.

        Fauci is a fraud (at best) for pushing double blind tests for a drug that is being used to keep patients from DYING. Further, Fauci was IMO responsible for delaying life saving use of HCQ.

    For most of last week, as Mayor Bill de Blasio continued to urge New Yorkers to mostly go about their daily lives — sending their children to school, frequenting the city’s businesses — some of his top aides were furiously trying to change the mayor’s approach to the coronavirus outbreak.

    Plus the state doesn’t know how to distribute goods to hospitals.

        Yes but it was a stupid article. The author said in so many words that the oddity was caused almost entirely by New York. Hello? That means the oddity is caused mostly by New York CITY. In other words by the fact that New Yorkers elected de Blasio as Mayor.

        The crisis in NYC is mostly from de Blasio’s repeated stupid policies, right down to mid-March. There’s just not much of a statistical anomaly when ONE MAN causes a disaster.

    If nothing else, the coronavirus response by government at all levels – Federal, state, local – proves the folly of central planning. Costly, inefficient, and wasteful.

    It doesn’t fail every time it’s tried because the planners aren’t smart enough. It fails because unlike free enterprise capitalism, where every supplier makes their own bets and on average half of them are right, when the central planners fail there isn’t a hedge.

    • Spot on! And the 2007 financial crash/Great Recession was likewise primarily caused by government central planning. And then, after causing the disasters, government planners/technocrats are there to “fix” them. Wash, rinse, and repeat.

      The central planning of today tends to take more of a piecemeal approach compared to the ambitious national economic planning of the 1920s – 1950s – and it’s often dressed up as (faux) “pragmatism” – but it’s still folly.

      To be fair, though, a lot of us on the right – myself most definitely included – partly contributed to the rise of “pragmatic” central planning by claiming that capitalism and free markets approximate “efficiency,” which is not really true. Capitalism – like all systems and instruments of fallible men in the hyper-complex real modern world, is messy and sometimes inefficient. It’s just less inefficient than the alternatives.

      More important is to heed your wise lesson . . . capitalism works BECAUSE it accounts for failure, counter-intuitive as that seems. Capitalism allows consumers to exit from bad products (“bets” or market experiments), failures, etc., whereas central planning mandates one-size-fits-all “solutions.”

        antitechnocreacy: “[…] whereas central planning mandates one-size-fits-all “solutions.””

        And that goes a long way towards explaining Dr. Fauci. Like any government bureaucrat, he’s supposed to take care of a pandemic when one comes up. He’s an expert, so everyone should accept his opinion and follow his orders. That’s a one-size-fits-all solution and is what you’d expect from him. He wants everyone to follow the path he lays out.

        He’s also a CYA-ing bureaucrat. He must recommend things that won’t come back on him because they are approved as standard practices and in the journals.

        Ummm, no. President Trump doesn’t roll that way. He’s looking for solutionS and it seems now it is quite possible that there are 3 or 4 preventatives and maybe as many cures. And we need different approaches because what might work for one may be fatal to another.

        It makes sense to have a patient and their Dr. choose a preventive or treatment because the Dr. knows the patient. That’s the opposite of one-size-fits-all and is probably incomprehensible to Dr. Fauci.

    Why shouldn’t everybody in the at-risk population have access, now, through their physician or through a local hospital, to Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) on a preventative basis?

    We’ve been talking about it now since at least March 18 (coming up on three weeks) and many doctors-researchers have known since 2005 that HCQ was effective against SARS and MERS.

    Up here in northern Vermont, I am finding out by calling around that right now prescribing HCQ as a preventative is NOT on doctors’s radar screens.

    In fact, if you call them up and ask for HCQ on a prophylactic basis, you are considered a crackpot.

    The following is what I am seeing — doctors will NOT prescribe HCQ unless/until you get sick because they:

    (1) either don’t believe in the drug (they think it’s hype), or

    (2) are misinformed (claim there are no studies or studies with insufflicent study size), or

    (3) are risk-averse (afraid they or their practice or their hospital will get sued), or

    (4) claim that HCQ has dangerous side effects (yet Lupus, Crohn’s, and RA patients take it for extended periods without dying en masse!), or

    (5) hate President Trump (I actually had a hospital physician out of the blue tell me that the President is only one promoting it) and don’t want to see something he promoted be the solution because that would give him the credit.

    Who would have thought that so many doctors would be uninterested in keeping patients healthy?

    The clear implication is ideologically driven doctors (and there are a bunch of them) really would rather have patients die.

    Really.

    I have explained to those doctors with whom I’ve talked that I do not see the difference between my takling HCQ (I’m in the at-risk group) as a preventative now or if at some point in the future i were taking it to prevent contracting malaria if I traveled to Africa or South America.

    In fact, I read that the dosage for Covid-19 therapy is a lower than for preventing malaria.

    Here in Vermont, I asked my current doctor, former doctor, and called the local hospital, and have gotten nowhere.

    I called a political contact in Washington, D.C., who said there isn’t enough to go around (yet) for those who want to take it prophylactically, that first responders will be getting it first.

    I replied that President Trump last night had gotten 29,000,000 doses coming to USA and arriving soon.

    Other pharmaceutical companies have pledged more — in one case, 130,000,000 doses.

    It would seem that there should soon be PLENTY to treat both first responders and a good portion of the elderly, at-risk population.

    Talking about HCQ as a cure for those who are sick is great.

    But to get the economy up and running we need HCQ to be available as a preventative because this is something we can do NOW.

    Even if the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s vaccine proves out, it will be many months before it is available to you and I.

    We need to move RIGHT NOW on HCQ for folks like me in the high-risk category who are interested in taking it, as well as prescribing it to all first responders on an optional preventative basis.

    BUT SOMEONE NEEDS TO TAKE THE LEAD WITH DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS, too many of whom are dragging their feet.

      PT said we only have 29 million doses in stock so that works out to being able to treat 5.8M people assuming 1 pill a day for 5 days.

      My guess is Navarro is going to have to use the Defense Act on Mylan Pharmaceuticals who has a hydroxychloroquine manufacturing facility in West Virginia to ensure the USA gets over 800M pills.

      The reason I say 800M pills is when the DS starts screaming about asymptotic people and it being as high as 50% of the population, we will have 800M pills on hand to treat these folks as a preventative.

      Now back to work!

        I defer to your insight on the amount. If It were I, I’d invoke the act and order the pills. Before this whole mess started, these HCQ pills were (supposedly) a nickel each and available in every pharmacy and hospital in the country. If we got 800M or a billion, we could certainly stockpile those we didn’t use for the next time a Kung flu virus escapes a wet market or bioweapon lab. Waiting for the vaccine would be the wrong strategy, in my view — I’d give everyone the option of HCQ — five days and you can go anywhere, do anything, and be back to normal. WHAT THE HELL AM I MISSING HERE???

        I believe the regiment is 2x a day for HCQ, 1x day for Zinc.

        Our GSA acquisition of 3M & others masks also needs to be investigated.

        Last night one of the MSM TV news channels claimed an order from our Gov’t to 3M, I think for 5 Million N95 masks, has a delivery date of April 30th! We placed this order weeks ago!!

    Better put the hydroxychloroquine in a fire proof building with big security so Fauci can’t pull off an act of arson.

    I wonder if Mr. Navarro would consider publishing or at least putting up at the briefing a simple chart that lists all the states and then a column for each PPE supplies such as ventilators, masks, gowns, shields, test kits, hydroxychloroquine etc. supplied to each state.

    They clearly have these numbers.

    It might make for a very telling slide of all the stuff PT and team have sent to the states knowing that the Federal Government is the backup and not the primary source.

    IMO it would Show just how much work and effort PT and team have done to help save the assess of these many worthless governors.

      I suggested yesterday, or the day before, that there should be an electronic register for the HCQ and other drugs furnished by the Feds, at the very least. How much they each got, and a line by line running subtraction of that amount by the drug being dispensed to patients.

      Doctor name, patient name, when, how much, results, all in real time so the admin can see if their directives are being followed, and we can make sure they are no mass or black market sales, and other shenanigans going on.

      This is simple, and that’s your trial.

    Everyone (bit PDJT, and a few of his trusted advisors, I suspect) are rightfully focused right now on ‘Supply chain disruptions’.

    Sundance has done several excellent articles, granular AND 30,000 ft level, analysing the downstream and upstream ramifications of ‘supply chain disruptions.

    However, as we go OUT of this lockdown, and we WILL, we will encounter something on a broad scale, that we have never seen before.

    Either an ‘opposite’ or a correlary of supply chain disruption, is DEMAND ‘Chain’ Disruption, for lack of a better term, or DCD.

    Think first of Hospitals. They have shut down many profit making non-essential services, elective or non-emergent surgeries, testings and procedures, etc. All in anticipation of the CHI-NA virus patients that may or may not appear.

    At SOME point, we are going to get the “all clear”, presumably saying “non-essential businesses and activities can resume, try to continue to practice social distancing, 6′ and hand washing, maybe wear masks for awhile, maybe high risk continue to avoid crowds.

    So, almost 2 months worth of postponed work will come into hospitals. In addition, there will be the ‘work’ that would be coming in over the next two months, if there had BEEN no shutdown.
    Its going to take the hospitals quite some time, to work thru that backlog.

    Beauty shops. Set aside for the moment the challenges of dieing or cutting someones hair or giving them a manicure while social distancing, to focus on my main point;
    For 2 months, no one has gotten hair treatments, or manicure/pedicures.
    Once the “all clear” is given, all shops that managed to use SBA loans as a bridge, and so are opened, are going to have not only that 2 month backlog to work thru, but again the ‘normal’business resumption.
    Backlog, again.
    Any shops that weren’t able to ‘survive’ will quickly be rented by those who were, to expand their operation to handle the increased demand.
    Employees who lost their jobs during the shutdown will be hired, and in high demand, with wages rising.

    Some, who have longed to open their own shop, will realise they will never have a better time.

    Similarly with restaurants. Sundance tells us 50-60% of meals in America are prepared outside the home.

    So, 2 months of pent up demand, ON TOP OF the resumption of the ‘normal’ demand! You may have to make a reservation, to eat breakfast at Dennys!

    Again, any unemployed will be quickly hired by businesses that ARE able to reopen, new businesses will start up and existing will expand to try to fill the void.

    In many of these ‘non-essential’ businesses, we may effectively see NEGATIVE unemployment, as their are more jobs available, than workers to fill them. Therefore, wages will RISE, but as we have seen, and Sundance has explained, any resulting inflation will LAG by a significant degree.

    And, new businesses, new industries will spring up; companies that specialise in going into restaurants and installing plexiglass barriers between booths, etc.

    And, all this will mean a net INCREASE, in an already supercharged CONSUMER DEMAND driven Main Street economy.

    More people, with more $ in their pockets, will spend that $, creating more jobs. Its a lovely kind of ‘viscious cycle’, and within 6 months, we may see levels of unemployment we haven’t ever seen so low.

    SOME industries or jobs WILL be hurt by the social distancing, undoubtedly,…massueses for instance.

    Not sure how you can give someone a massage, ‘safely’. However, I do think that while it will take awhile, in time and as the virus dissipates, people will relax, and for instance start hugging, again.

    I recall when HIV AIDS was all a big thing, people would freak out around gay people, or if someone cut their finger.

    Anyway, I am confident PDJT is thinking about this, and as individuals WE may want to think about how the upstream and downstream effects of “DEMAND CHAIN DISRUPTION”, and resumption, will effect us.

    Finally, not NOW, obviously as now we must do that whole “we’re all in this together.

    But, the CCP propoganda will not work, even with obvious media support.
    The American people, and the World are gonna be P.O.’D at the CCP for their culpability in foisting this virus on the World.

    I doubt you could ever PROVE, to everyones satisfaction that CHI-NA did this deliberately, but I think its obvious to all that they covered it up, downplayed it, all the while CREATING a Worldwide shortage of PPE, in order to exploit it.

    I can’t see any serious opposition to PDJT increasing the existing tariffs, and re-instating the ‘additional’ tariffs he suspended after the phase one deal.

    “I’LL end them, when we reach 6 Trillion, the amount you cost us!”

    Thought I would share my thoughts on “Demand chain disruptions”, and the consequences of ending them.

    Its raining now, but I see blue skies ahead!

    https://www.axios.com/exclusive-navarro-deaths-coronavirus-memos-january-da3f08fb-dce1-4f69-89b5-ea048f8382a9.html

    Navarro clashed this past weekend with Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, over how widely to promote the use of malaria drug hydroxychloroquine to treat the coronavirus.

    But the January and February memos reveal a more substantial advocacy on his part, with detailed health and economic calculations meant to grab and hold the president’s attention.
    Politico first reported in late February about the existence of memos from Navarro to White House officials, while their details had not been published.
