    Just a short 20th century history lesson…
    Communism comes to power not as the major military role player.. it comes to power after the major player have weakened each other.
    China was invaded by Japan…when japan was beaten in China… thei Chinese civil war started… the same in North Krorea….

    The Chinese communist have risen in power in the United States thru corruption.. President Clinton lobbied for China WTO membership 1997.(received money in the Clinton Foundation) ..Technology transfers were approved by congress thru corrupted politicians.. example …this allowed Chinese factories to produce Aircraft bolts used in Boeing planes.. on and on…

    as the money flowed into China thru trade the CCP sent student into United States University Research programs..by funding…research.. stealing..data results… Bought into US corporations and Wall st…… access to Corporate Boards…

    As the money flowed China bought into MSM and Hollywood..a win win for China US movies had access to the Chinese market.. China controls the movie narrative.. and the MSM narrative.. China threatens to stop shipping Pharmaceuticals and no push back from MSM…

    So here we are in a War for our country…our future… Chine feels so strong since it controls our MSM… they are experts in propaganda…. the have now gotten Access to WH briefings…

    Maybe it’s time for President Trump to declare Martial Law while there is time. Everyone is home….. no mass demonstrations with all the lock downs thanks to Democrats Govorners.. …military tribunals…

    …we can no longer trust the Judicial system courts, the Inspector Generals.., DOJ, FBI Intelligence Community… CDC.. can you imagine our own health service giving out bad instructions that allow needless deaths of US Citizens..

    Time to cut out the Chinese Cancer…..and heal this country… save the patient..
    I have a old saying… You cannot loose what you don’t have.. we are about to loose our country…

      We are about to lose our country because we are fighting mother nature. If mother nature came in and killed all the sick people, would America be stronger or weaker? If sick people are a liability and healthy people are an asset, America would stronger because she lost liabilities.

      The disease does not kill women of childbearing age or men of military age. Whoever dies today from the disease would most likely be dead 5 years from now. So the population of USA would be exactly unchanged in 5 years.

      So we went into Iraq, spent trillions and have nothing to show for it. Five years from now we will have nothing to show for our sacrifice today, other than having spent trillions of dollars.

      If you loved your country what would you do? Are you willing to make the sacrifice today to have a stronger America tomorrow?

        This disease does kill people of all ages, even babies. Yes, older people are generally a higher risk, but your assumption is incorrect.

        But more important, someone who is old and prone to get sick is not a weakness for America. Old people have far more life experience and wisdom than younger people. Generally people have to get to about age 50 to start to have a little bit of wisdom. So, sure, you can get rid of old people and have a nation of young, but you will also have a nation of people making foolish decisions that could be avoided if some older people were still there to guide them.

        Last,point. It’s ridiculous to put a value on life other than priceless. American values have traditionally from our founding been to value all life and never leave someone behind. We value humans so highly that we even go back for our dead. We do that because our nation was founded primarily by men who followed God and His values and they understood that human life was the single most important thing that God created.

          Ken,

          You are talking nonsense like fake news. The average age of death in Italy was 80 years old. How many 80 year old’s are in the workforce? We have more obese so will probably dip lower than that.

          If life was priceless as you claim, we would not have cars, knives or guns. Nobody wants to live in your world, that is why it does not exist.

              People die every year from the flu. We know and understand that and find the death rate acceptable. This flu is not going away, it will be with us next season as well. We can significantly mitigate transmissions at very little cost. We do not have to shut down the country.

        Just as he appears to use Alynsky’s rules for Radicals, against his enemies, he IS ‘using’thus crises to further his agenda in many ways.

        Nothing so obvious and draconian as martial law, and much of what he is doing is not obvious,…but its THERE, none the less.

        You just have to set aside emotions, and the spin of the moment in order to SEE it. Actually, even his opponents are,so caught up in such things, THEY don’t see what he is doing, and of coarse thats,a GOOD thing.

      The situation was chaotic with revolutions, counter revolutions, infighting etc. for decades. Mao was variously too communist and not communist enough. Amazing that he survived all those years.

    What has been most disturbing to me recently are the too-eager Americans willing to submit to a basic loss of their liberties and, worse, to inform on their fellows for daring to have a barbecue in their back-yards, or to have a child’s birthday party, etc. The too-eager Americans wanting to prolong this idiocy to ruin the economy further and ruin America in general have been disturbing also.

    I am unfortunately reminded of those Russians who willingly betrayed their fellow citizens to the Communists for grumbling, for writing poems against Stalin or Brezhnev, etc. in the hope of receiving a larger apartment, or a new pair of shoes. I am also reminded of The White Rose (the anti-Nazi underground started by Catholic students at the University of Munich, who were inspired by the anti-Nazi sermons of Archbishop Galen of Muenster), who publushed underground pamphlets against Hitler and his henchmen.

    Their Fourth Pamphlet had these lines:

    …we seek to achieve a revival of the deeply wounded German spirit from within. However, this rebirth must be preceded by a clear confession of all the guilt the German nation has incurred and by a ruthless battle against Hitler and his too-numerous helpers’ helpers,…

    …There is no punishment on this earth that is adequate for the deeds of Hitler and his followers. Out of love for the generations to come, we must make an example [of them] after the conclusion of the war so that no one will ever have the slightest desire to attempt something similar. Do not forget even the little scoundrels of this regime. Note their names, so that no one escapes! After all these atrocities, they should not be able to change sides at the last minute and thereby pretend as though nothing had happened!…”

    My emphasis above.

    Yes, the “helpers’ helpers” and the “little scoundrels” who have bought into the propaganda and want to appropriate a slice of the power of the state for themselves to lord it over their neighbors, over the clerk at the grocery store, over the mail carriers, over the teenagers at the playground.

    These are the Americans who would be willing to run the “Re-Education/Death Camps” of the future. I doubt, however, that our future totalitarians would “change sides at the last minute.”

    They are too proud of their willingness to oppress others in the name of safety, fairness, and a brutal equality.

When I questioned some of the numbers that were used to justify all the shutdowns, I was accused of wanting to make old people and sick people “sacrificial lambs to capitalism!”

      And those are the very people, as you say, who will be the first to rat out their neighbors, or even their fellow church members, for daring to question the official narrative! Anyone who has studied the history of how the church responded in Germany can see how few people actually stood up against the Third Reich!

The total and nearly instantaneous loss of our Constitutional rights seems to be a much more serious issue than the economy. After all, the quality of the economy is pretty much meaningless if we do not have the freedoms set forth in the Constitution. The public and most conservative commentators have nothing to say about our loss of those rights. When you bring it up, you are accused of wanting to kill people by the same people that are likely to report their neighbors. Loved your post!

      SAw this in action just this weekend. On a community FB site someone posted they saw a gathering of people at a community playground with their kids etc. The poster was out walking alone and said he was doing the right thing and was appalled by the group of people not obeying the social distancing rules. Well, the responses to this were pretty depressing. Most all of them were discussing ways to turn these people in, mainly calling the police to come take care of the situation. I finally had enough and chimed in We are now apparently ok with turning our neighbors in, to the police, for gathering in a park? Is this America or Russia? It really is kind of scary how easily people are swayed and how little they are curious to know all the facts about anything. They just swallow the media line and willingly give up their freedoms thinking that’s what has to happen.

      I have excused some of this because most people are trying to do the right thing and help protect one and other from a devastating illness, but there comes a time when they must protect the freedoms, we all share to and start asking some questions about what we are subjecting ourselves too and for what really.

          Another of the lessons of Nazi Germany that seem to have been missed is the role of the press. When the press is controlled by government agencies, and people have no other source of news and contrasting information, what are they going to believe?

          Many people in the United States today believe what they see on television. Many do not question what is broadcast, or seek alternative views about what is happening.

          The Germans had no idea what was going on with Mengele&Co., or other atrocities. It wasn’t up front and center via inquisitive or ethical reporting. When Michael Hastings’ car exploded in Los Angeles, while he was working on an article about Brennan, this should have made more people concerned. It’s a slippery slope when journalists have been intimidated into silence (or killed)

            Seneca — It will vary from district to district, but the U.S. Courts are generally open in some modified way — by teleconference, if nothing else. Check the uscourts.gov website.

            All these orders by State and Local Tyrants are not only violations of State Constitutions and laws, but also federal constitutional violations. So Federal Courts have jurisdiction.

            There are at least avenues still open to get these matters heard. As I said, however, I lack confidence that many of modern “courts” would protect our liberties. I wish Louie Gohmert were still on the Bench in Texas.

        If I’m in a group deemed “at risk” then it’s my constitutional right to go sit around a bunch of people at my park. Or church. Or baseball game. If I catch something and die, it was my choice. Same as driving a car. Or dying of flu.

          Much like “the freedom to swing your fist stops at the tip of my nose,” the problem with this virus is that a large amount of people carry and spread it, but show no symptoms. So while you are free to take a personal risk, how can you be certain you won’t spread it to your family, co-workers, or the fellow sitting next to you at that ball game?

          When you swing your fist in the air, no problem. When you connect with my nose . . . problem. Would you not expose yourself to assault or manslaughter charges if someone’s infection could be traced to you due to your choices?

          People spreading AIDS through carelessness can and should be charged with attempted murder. I don’t like these quarantines any more than you, but . . .

      I also believe a better use of our resources would to direct aid to those at risk based on the severity of those risks.
      I believe instead of shutting down restaurants, make use of their capabilities to make and deliver meals,so those at risk don’t have to go to stores.
      Develop care packages of non food items to.deliver.
      Our Army training facilities for medicine should be cranked up to develop a civilian reserve medical corp that is able to jump in these situations,natural.disasters pandemics.
      This civilian corp could assist medical.personnel and also visit.and check on at risk persons.

      Those at risk groups could be divided into low ,medium and high with differing levels of assistance and restrictions.
      And remember the at risk.population is not always the same group.
      And remember the at risk people are.already locked down , so it could certainly be stated that why should low risk.people have the same restrictions?( Disclaimer. I am at risk )
      I also believe the current restrictions can add to the generational and class divisiveness.

      If you look at it from their angle they are believing that most at risks are more able to stay at home ,less.likely to be employed, less.likely to have the strain on income because of soc sec and savings that they have not had time to build up, less likely to have the concerns of having a job to go back to ..I could see where they may feel they are being asked to do something to help hose at risk and getting ingratitude in return.

      The Constitution spells out the limits if authority if the,FEDERAL government, delineating which authorities to which branch, and says all other authorities are reserved to the STATES or the PEOPLE.

      When California said gun stores and shooting ranges weren’t “essential”, and ordered them closed, the FEDERAL government over ruled them, as it should.
      The Federal government did NOT intervene, in the,case in New York, of the Pastor arrested.
      I suspect that is because the case will obviously be adjuducated in the Courts, and as Sundance said its pretty obvious how it will be resolved.

      These infringements of rights and liberties are ALL coming from STATE governments, and municipal governments.

      And the people, living in those jurisdictions, ultimately bear the responsibility.

    Today’s op-ed at the Russian version of Chinese propaganda RT.com gaslights its readers.

    ‘Kissinger says ‘even US’ can’t defeat Covid-19 alone. His solution? Global NWO government, of course’ by an American author.

    The American author gaslights her readers. How?

    When she talks about Kissinger’s accolades, she never mentions it was Kissinger who advised Nixon to open USA to China.

    In fact, The American author never speaks about China. Why?

    She avoids any mentioning of what Soros, Kissinger’s fellow traveler, said about China.
    In 2016,
    George Soros laid out the global elites’ plan for ushering in what he called “a New World Order” during an interview with the Financial Times. According to Soros, China must lead this New World Order, “creating it and owning it,” in the same way the United States “owns the current order.”
    https://newspunch.com/george-soros-china-new-world-order/

    The author of the RT op-ed – together with Soros – pretends not to know that China was part of the ‘New World Order’ for years.

    Instead, she repeats the talking points of Chinese propaganda:

    – ‘no government – even his beloved hegemon’. USA is the hegemon.

    – ‘is what got the US into its current situation – believing itself exceptional..’.
    Who knew that our troubles came from American exceptionalism?

    – ‘who seek to cloak empire.’ USA is the empire.

    Chinese propaganda and its Russian version at its best.

    Also,the author talks about the Manhattan project. But she avoids mentioning how Clinton sold our uranium to Russia, and how she and Obama helped to transfer military technologies to Skolkovo project.

More exactly, NO advice because there was no one in the room saying, “Sir, neither you nor Governors have the power to shut the country, or their States, down.)

    Confusing? Yes. They have ACTUAL deaths for Apr 4 & 5 as 1,755 and 1,745 respectively.
    But Worldometers report ACTUAL deaths for Apr 4 & 5 as 1,330 and 1,165 respectively.

    For Apr 6 they predicted 1,967 deaths. There were actually only 1,255.
    Today they predict 2,140 deaths. So far, with 70+% of the day gone, there are less than 800, so we can reasonably assume they have over-estimated once again..

    Now I understand the need to be conservative, but what exactly is going on here?

    Could it be that the widespread use of hydroxychlorquine (and other drugs) are contributing to the low numbers? Crushing the curve which, after all, did not account for their efficacy and has not reckoned them into their modelling?

    And how much effort is being put into preventing and/or hiding these possible facts from the general voting population?

      Aside from the fact that the makers of mathematical models are not God’s Prophets, we definitely have big problems with the reported [mortality …] numbers. (1) They count only deaths which occurred “with” COVID, not “of” it. And (2) They leave it up to the doctor’s opinion without relying on any test. And finally (3) There is very obviously right now pressure to make the numbers as big as possible.

      Facts are – while this virus can “hit very hard and fast when it hits,” it usually doesn’t. In fact, it nearly always doesn’t. Therefore, while it is more virulent than “common flu” (more like the “common cold” for which its family is generally responsible), it is not(!) actually turning out to be more dangerous.

      Facts are also – “we are still very much in the process of finding these things out.”

      Epidemiology is not an exact science, and the public health of the world is (ahem …) “certainly nothing to sneeze at.” 🤠 If you’re the POTUS, then, “there is a decision to be made, and y-o-u are both going to be the one who makes it, and the one who owns it forever.”

          There is a reason for the huge fall from week 9-12. Because the latest week 12 is only 84% complete. If you take a snap shot now of weeks 9-12 you find that they will continue to go up for at least a month from now.

          This is because it takes time to get all the #’s in from reporting agencies across the US. When they updated for week # 10 here are the stats they showed for week # 9–
          Flu=487, Pneumonia=2,910, Total deaths=46,919
          Now for week # 9 they show–
          Flu=553, Pneumonia=3,390, Total deaths=53,382
          And they will continue to go up.

          Take a gander a month from now and you will see much higher #’s for weeks 9-12 while weeks 13-16 will show the same drop off. They adjust #’s as more information comes in. As a matter of fact the, weekly stats can/will change going back as far as 3 months!

    More media narrative spin on the Navarro-FauXi debate, from Axios:

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

    That is instructive, once you weed out the Narrative.

    “Our thought bubble: Axios’ health care editor Sam Baker says Navarro’s concern about the severity while acknowledging the speculative nature of modeling viruses was largely correct.

    “These memos place a very big emphasis on banning travel specifically from China —which, of course, Trump did,” Baker says. But by Jan. 29, there were confirmed cases in 15 countries, including the U.S.
    “This is not to say they’re a bad idea, only that this is why public-health experts don’t lean as heavily on travel restrictions. People come into the U.S. from a lot of places, and with two globalized countries, simply stopping people coming in from Wuhan was not bad but it shouldn’t be shocking that it was insufficient.”

    So Fauci doesn’t want the country taken off lock down until there are zero new cases or deaths. How about we dock his salary for every confirmed U.S. COVID case since it was his organization’s mission to prevent deadly infectious diseases from entering our country in the first place. He also should not get paid (like millions of other Americans) until there are zero new cases or deaths.

  16. Voting in Wisconsin.
    Per WI Supreme Court Ruling:
    In-Person Voting for the 2020 Spring Election and Presidential Preference will take place as scheduled on April 7, 2020.
    Per US Supreme Court Ruling:
    Mailed absentee ballots must be postmarked on April 7 and received by 4:00pm on April 13 to be counted.
    Hand delivered ballots or ballots without a postmark must be returned to the polling place by 8:00pm on April 7 to be counted.
    If you have not received an absentee ballot and wish to vote, you must vote at your polling place on April 7.

    So the state constitution was upheld. US Supreme Court was only ruling on the absentee ballet postmarked date being after April 7 which would me a person could see election results before posting you ballot.

    Voter ID required in WIS even for absentee ballots and your ballot MUST be signed by a witness.
    For myself. I had to send in a fax of my drivers license or other valid ID just like I would at live poling places. The you commit you name and YOUR address to that absentee ballot.

    In my case since I live by myself I had to call my daughter over to witness my ballot before sending it in. Witnesses must sign name and also put their legal address down to verify that they are a real person.

    Once an absentee ballot is sent you are marked on voter log books as having had a chance to vote. If you did not mail it in then you must take your ballot to the polling place to either hand in the filled out ballot or vote live that day after surrendering your absentee ballot that is destroyed.

    So Absentee ballot pretty much like live voting. Dems want no controls on mail in voting – no ID, No witness required.

And we know that use of HCL seems to rout the virus in less than half the time it normally hangs around.

          So, actual efficacy as a curative drug, efficacy as a prophylactic drug, and efficacy as a drug that reduces the time that patient is sick by at least 50%.

            In a normal flu season, I know quite a number of people who get the flu. Not only do I not know anyone with the coronavirus, there are only 125 known cases in our half million population metro area.

However, this is an outbreaks that must be mitigated and contained for the safety of the people. Where are the high cases, what travel must be shutdown or contained, etc., etc.” No. This opened the floodgate and set a precedent that the longer it goes on, the worse for the American people. OPEN THE FREAK$NG ECONOMY UP. STOP THE INSANITY.

    Healthcare workers know this is a total overreaction. They know it. What makes matters worse, we are getting reports that foreign travel is NOT contained, nobody knows the actual mortality rates, and the evil modelers keep changing the model. Mr. President, please stop this now.

    The one thing you need to ask these medical charlatans is:

    What is the mortality rates by State and how many of those were actually CONFIRMED COVID-19 by a positive test?

    Perhaps if the right questions are asked and an understanding of the BS peddling going on, the right actions can be taken. We did not elect Fauci to the Presidency.

    “Every patient I’ve prescribed it to has been very, very ill and within 8 to 12 hours, they were basically symptom-free,” Dr. Anthony Cardillo told Eyewitness News in Los Angeles. “So clinically I am seeing a resolution.”

    Dr. Fauci,

    How do you explain the fact that Dr. Oz has been search and searching and can’t find a single Lupus patient who has been on hydroxychloroquine for Lupus, who has tested positive for COVID-19?

    How do you explain that?

    Blind luck

    Or should we do a 18 month clinical trial to determine why?

    It is time for Fauci to go IMO.

    What is the biggest take away from the left now saying that Trump will be profiting from the sale of Plaquenil?

    That it works! Why else would they spend so much time digging that little zinger up?

    Even if it only works a percentage of the time, that is great news.

    Dr, Brix,

    If my 87 year old mom was in hospice and had stage 4 cancer and died but tested positive for COVID-19 before her death, is that death recorded as a COVID-19 death?

    Yes or No

      Based on the guidelines released a few days ago from the CDC, there is a medical code they are to use that would attribute it to covid19. That’s the politics in the system that will control the public image and narrative that gets pushed.

        Yes and the reason why somebody has to ask this question in front of 100m people because the second they come back with yes that is correct the follow up question is then……

        So in reality it’s possible that maybe 50% -70% of the deaths being coded as COVID-19 are really because of something else.

        IMO this little dialogue in front of 100M people would be extremely telling.

        Mr. President – feel free to invite me to your next briefing so some honest questions can be asked.

      According to the latest CDC guidelines, dated March 24th, the answer is YES! And the answer would still be yes even if she tested negative but “appeared” to have COVID symptoms (such as shortness of breath, which, not to sound callous, is generally present in ANYONE as they are dying!)

      And this is a very personal question to me, because I HAVE an 87 year old mother who is in Hospice, with end stage dementia (whom I am NOT allowed to even visit!). I am expecting to get a phone call in the next couple of weeks telling me that she is gone AND I fully expect the ME to declare that her death is COVID related, because the states are being reimbursed by the Feds for every death that is labeled as such, whereas if she simply passes from heart failure, due to dehydration (she is eating and drinking very little and is on morphine for pain/agitation), the state won’t get any money!

      Share this document far and wide with anyone you know who is freaking out about ALL of the COVID deaths! Especially THIS line: “However, the rules for coding and selection of the underlying cause of death are expected to result in COVID-19 being the underlying cause more often than not.”

      A 90-year-old man who dies with a fracture of the femoral neck and becomes infected with corona in the hours prior to his death is counted as corona death.

      To name but one example.

      Austria: “Do you also count as a corona death if you are infected with the virus but die of something else? ”

    Important articles alert:

    Thanks to sedge2z above, who linked to an article with new insight into how Covid-19 kills, how HCQ interdicts that action, and what else may be needed to heal. Hint, fewer ventilators, more blood transfusions, and HCQ’s role as treatment and prophylactic also explained. This may radically improve clinical pathways, reduce serious illness: http://web.archive.org/web/20200405061401/https://medium.com/@agaiziunas/covid-19-had-us-all-fooled-but-now-we-might-have-finally-found-its-secret-91182386efcb

    Thanks to American Thinker, Sweden’s model of partial isolation, as opposed to economic shutdown, is better explained, and may provide the key to a major, if not complete, return to work: https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/04/trumps_swedish_gambit_against_virus_checkmate.html

    What Sweden is doing is asking vulnerable populations to self-isolate and for everyone else to respect and support that, while the younger healthy population goes on about work and daily life, unnecessary social interaction minimized, but with much less disruption to the economy, rapidly gaining herd immunity while the economy hums along.

    President Trump has set up the ongoing collaboration and tension between himself and Fauci, with Trump ceding to Fauci initially, but insisting “we have to get back to work,” while Fauci cautions against a “second wave” a resumption would generate. The TDS crowd want a ruined economy come November. The American Thinker article shows how Sweden’s approach will eliminate the second wave.

    I think what President Trump should do is bring in some other experts to counter Fauci, who gives too many indications of political, deep state, anti-Trump bias. Other experts to explain the Swedish and Brazilian approach. Let the pros and cons be debated live on the pressers, so the public can absorb, and learn how the tailored isolation process can work, while letting most people go back to work, the economy to rebound. Let Fauci expose himself as part of a deep state desire to ruin Trump’s re-election chances, at any cost. Let one-size-fits-all totalitarian solutions be compared with tailored solutions that take account of individuals and different locales and situations.

    I think this approach could be put to good use immediately in the Navy as the USS TR and many other ships suffer outbreaks. Isolate/remove the at-risk population (the few officers and men who are old and infirm, if any), airlift out those who become very sick, need to be hospitalized, and encourage the spread among the remainder of the crew, aided with prophylactic HCQ. Herd immunity achieved within weeks, without taking strategic forces out of action. Model for rapid country-wide economic recovery proven on a smaller scale.

    Together, they point to a game changer.

    The way I’m seeing things is the msm and dems are in bed with the CCP and globalists. They – through planning or opportunism – essentially have the world on lockdown. People are afraid, ratting on their neighbors for non compliance. The military has been readied and can be mobilized quickly to major cities. All this with approx. 6 months to go before our biggest election in history? IMO what is left is for the actual coup attempt to happen. Now one of two things is going on, Either Trump is blind to all of this or he is doing what he has always done, and managed to keep his enemies closer and will flip these circumstances to his/our advantage. He is a studied strategist. Godspeed Mr. President.

I think he has also noted, with derision, the conservative pundits who have pushed it. Versus the wait months for a big pharma multi billion dollar vaccine study while the economy goes into depression. I will never ever let him live it down.

    A few lib guvnahs like NY and and Michigan esp after they threatened doctors not to prescribe begging for it may just do the trick. I think Cuomo has already asked once.
