White House Coronavirus Task Force Briefing – 5:00pm ET Livestream…

Unfortunately, with President Trump effectively communicating the latest information on the federal efforts to mitigate COVID-19, more corporate U.S. resistance media have decided not to carry the live broadcasts from the White House task force briefings.

Today at 5:00pm ET the White House will hold a beating for the media and share the latest mitigation efforts against the coronavirus. [Livestream Links Below]

    We should demand to see a list of all 50 states and their financials as of 12/31/19

    And highlight and point out those states who were clearly underwater financially well before CV showed up.

    Americans should not provide one dime to bail out any of those dollars from a state that was upside down prior to CV.

    My daughter in Atlanta is telling me there are new guidelines out today for any Salons, tattoo parlors, Barber Shops opening on Friday, will be required to provide PPE to the customers – face masks, gloves, sanitizers and they must take temperatures. So a salon owner got on the news to say they cannot afford (or even find) the PPE, so they will not open.

        I bought some hand sanitizer (80% ethyl alcohol) from Old Glory Distilling co. It is a liquid, not a gel and intended to use with small spray bottles. I have some 2 oz. and 3 oz. plastic spray bottles that I use. It works just fine.
        Those little personal spray bottles can be bought from Amazon or other sources.

      Here are the guidelines from the cosmetology board. Mask only mandated for the employees. For customers: may want to consider taking temperature, may want to consider providing masks to extent possible..

      Use of personal protective equipment and best practices: Salon/shop employees will be required to wear masks at all times. Salons may want to consider providing masks to clients. Clients should wear face masks to the extent possible while receiving services. Salons/shops should also make use of face shields, gloves, disposable or re-washable capes, smocks, neck strips, etc. These items should be disinfected or disposed of between each client. Employees should arrive at the salon/shop showered and wearing clean clothing and change clothes before leaving the salon/shop each day. Handwashing with soap and warm water, for a minimum of 20 seconds will be required by employees between every client service.

      I plan to try to get my hair done next week. I will book first in the morning appointment, take my own PPE, wear mask when possible, give a clean mask and gloves to my stylist, and sanitize everything as soon as I get in the car.

      The actual guidance from the board that regulates salons mandates masks only for employees. It says you may want to consider checking temps, providing PPE, asking questions, etc. Below is a copy of some of the guidance.

      I will probably try for a hair appointment next week. Will ask for first of the day appointment, will bring a clean mask for the stylist (who is solo practice), will wear gloves, will bring a mask to hold over my face during hair washing and coloring. Will sanitize as soon as I walk out.

    Dear Mr. President…

    As a staunch supporter of your policies and leadership style, I’d like to thank you for all you’ve done for America and her people. The pressure on you at this time must be immense, but you stand tall each day and deal with the shitstorm. Again, thank you

    There are a few issues though that are troubling me regarding the handling of the country during this time

    In the last month or so we’ve gotten data from numerous sources regarding the virus’s impact on people and certain drugs used to alleviate the virus’s symptoms

    The data suggests the virus is no more dangerous than the common flu, only having a deadly impact on mostly elderly people with preconditions. We also now know the number of deaths has been highly exaggerated with the medical community listing deaths by other causes as death by the virus

    We now know that millions of people have had the virus without even knowing it, and have recovered, just like the normal flu every year. Also the vast majority who’ve felt symptoms and took the Chloroquine cocktail have recovered quickly, yet this remedy has been basically removed from the subject

    We also now know that the two main leads on your task force, Fauci and Brix, have grossly miscalculated the numbers and have given horrible advise on how to proceed. Not too mention they’re both partisan hacks with allegiance to the democrat party and worldwide leftist organizations which are all working overtime to remove you from office

    Something stinks to high heaven on that podium stage

    On top of all that, we have Governors and Mayors across the country issuing draconian lock down and control edicts which are un-Constitutional and they’re allowing their police forces to act like storm troopers, arresting people for things like walking alone on a beach

    And the worst, our juggernaut of an economy, with jobs to spare for everyone, is crumbling into dust before our eyes. The destruction of our economy, jobs and way of life could very easily be the end of America

    The devastation to we the people will be severe. Hopelessness will rule the day as our health deteriorates, suicides and deaths skyrocket and our children are left with nothing

    So I have a few questions for you Mr. President…

    #1: With the hundreds of world renowned and highly respected doctors and other medical professionals telling us the numbers and our approach to the virus, like locking us down and shutting down the economy, are totally wrong, why haven’t you assembled a large task force which includes these professionals and have them guide you and speak to the American people?

    Why do you continue to disregard them while you allow two incompetent partisan hacks, who despise you, control the narrative and the country / people as well?

    This is not like you. Something seems terribly wrong

    #2: In regard to shutting down the country and the tyrannical un-Constitutional edicts which abound, why hasn’t your Administration taken action?

    It would seem to me that a time like this is tailor made for the Supreme Court. Not the lower courts, as we have no times for partisan political games from Obama boot lickers in robes

    No, we need some guidance and authority.to step in and hopefully get some consistent structure going and reopen the country. We must stop these power hungry little men and women from overstepping their bounds

    This is urgent Mr. President. Our country and our very lives hang in the balance

    I urge you to take command, use your natural style to push back on those trying to destroy you and America. Our destruction continues each and every day at full speed

    Stop the madness

        While I see your point and respect your opinion, I don’t think my verbiage was insulting or accusatory. I see it as hard questions on a vital subject, from one person to another who doesn’t fool around and is blunt when the need arises

        I believe you know me to be an unflinching Trump supporter, and I’ll bet our President hears from millions of supporters like me who shower praise on him, with good reason, but this situation is becoming intolerable, and the very real destruction is something we may never recover from

        So, while I inform him of my support, I feel he may need to hear from actual supporters who have real questions about his leadership on this one issue, and needs to hear from his supporters on how their lives are on a tightrope right now and are becoming more aware of the fraud that looks to have been perpetrated upon us

        Our President isn’t afraid to be harsh when the need arises, and we supporters shouldn’t be afraid either

      This is a great letter and President Trump needs to see this,he needs to understand that his election was not about him personally but what He was promising for this wonderful and special country and our fellow patriots. This nation’s care has been neglected for so long and ,it reminds me of termites working on a historical home – once so beautiful and stately but over the years the neglect had taken a toll on her and the foundations were crumbling away , the pillars that once supported her frame leaning and falling under the weight of neglect and mistreatment ( demoncrats MSM and deep state) we begged and pleaded for restoration for repairs but the committees turned a deaf ear (congress and senate) we tried replacing the committee members but to no avail they soon became Like the previous ones and would not act they were too busy with new shiny projects to care about the enduring history and events that were so important to the people who wanted to save the grand old home but a new member was elected to the committee and lo and behold he listened
      We didn’t care who he was just that he listened and was going to restore this piece of history that meant so much to all of us and He did All was going well it was a beautiful thing the pillars were repaired the foundations were repoured and things were going well
      Then
      It started one night the storms came in wave after wave,the winds blew the rain poured
      The storm was so relentless that the house began to crumble
      all the repairs done and not finished were being severely damaged the foundations were giving away. would this be our last and only attempt to save her Our committee head said no we would come through this and survive to rebuild again but decisions were made we did not understand the yes we will became a maybe. Maybe When the time is right and well it might not be worth the effort
      He was listening too much to the other committee members they don’t love this home like we do can’t you see sir. Please listen to us if we don’t stop the rot and damage this house will be destroyed from within and will be mowed down to exist no more.
      Sorry for the silly story but I love this country and I’m so very afraid the clock is running out sooner than later. With prayers. Grammy

      I agree, something is wrong – I keep going back to whether he let Mike Pence have absolute control of this & he fell for Fauci & the Berk’s game & now the only way that they see out of this is to continue to the bitter end – no matter what. I just can’t fathom it.
      I find it odd that we aren’t hearing anything from the Trump Family at all too – those boys are usually heavily involved. Then Melania didn’t Social Distance, or wear a mask on Arbor Day & she made a point of telling us to wear one, before that.
      I’ve been donating $50 per month to President Trump for more than 2 years, but today I cancelled it, I’ll donate to some of the Conservative Veterans who are running for Congress, I’m sure that they can use it.
      Another thing- the Beat the Press is getting way old – POTUS should go back to ignoring the imbeciles – it makes not one bit of difference to what they write & it’s a waste of his energy & time, IMO.
      I find it a bit tragic that Conservatives are relegated to commenting on this waste of time actually, it is madness & I think that the only people who think this whole thing is okay – are the Dems & lefties.

      I think PT has a general mistrust of the vast majority of Washington types. I’m sure he has a network of medical experts that he converses with regularly. I’m equally confident that he has his own pipeline of experts on a host of issues. He has to be seen as playing the game the DC expects. That’s why Fauci and Birx had to be on the task force…they were the establishments leading “experts” and he would be roasted foe side stepping their inclusion. But when I saw weeks ago that he would push them to the mic when media pushed him on process questions, he made them own it. When Fauci went rogue in some of his interviews with revisionist history, my guess is PT had Peter Navarro remind him that the train was coming down the tracks. This is agony to see unfold, and people are hurting in the process, but I truly feel that the end result is going to be a masterpiece for the future of our country. This was their last gasp master plan….and an affront on humanity. I feel that this man has been chosen for this time, and he has our backs against unbelievable odds.

            Agree. I hope Illinoisans raise up our voice and make it known we need to go back to work and that we will defend our Constitutional rights. I find it extremely unfair and unnecessary that the entire state has to be shut down. The cases are in the Chicagoland area. This is the area has has reported 92% of all the cases in the state, and similarly 92% of all the deaths in Illinois. I live in DuPage county and I find it terribly unfair to punish and treat all of Illinois the same as the Chicagoland area.
            But the governor said yesterday that he will proceed with the extended shut down and that no “political pressure” will make him change his mind. I think that he wants to make it known that Trump or any of the patriots in Illinois will not make him change his dictatorship overreach.
            I have been studying the stats in the state and basically we have reached a plateau. The numbers are showing we may soon be down in new cases. But he said that this was about saving lives. That’s the new narrative “to save lives” as opposed to the original narrative of flattening the curve.

    People have been wondering about the age of people dying of the Wuhan Virus.

    This is info from today in PA. If you scroll down to the very bottom they list those that have died that were in nursing or care facilities.

    Well 849 out of the total of 1421 death in PA so 60%. That doesn’t include elderly that aren’t in those type of facilities (which maybe significant). This site does not give any Statewide breakdown of ages or other illnesses.

    But it is amazing that Wolf continues the lockdown of the State when so many deaths are of the very elderly that aren’t going out anyway.

    My continued feeling is we should spend all the $$$$$ that are being used to shut down the economy on protecting the elderly, especially those in homes.

I was thinking something like running an infected patient’s blood through a machine and hit it with ultraviolet rays before putting back in. I’m so sick of this kind of bullshit reporting!

    Today’s press briefing spoke about the effect of temperature and especially UV light on the virus. Why in the world is this just coming out now? Mr. Bryan of the DHS was so excited to state that increasing UV light cuts the survival of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and said this was recently observed by scores of scientists working for him and his team. The effects and statistics regarding UV light on viruses were published long ago. These geniuses simply ignored the known data and went along with recommending draconian mitigation efforts instead. Now, it’s suddenly big news that UV kills the virus very quickly. Truthfully, it’s not breaking news. This blog wrote about UV light and COVID-19 exactly 9 days ago just using the available research from Columbia University and medical experts plus the latest stats on mortality rates. In fact, the headline of the article says it all: https://thepoliticsofduh.com/2020/04/15/the-uv-index-and-covid-19/

      The briefings are very depressing. Seems like a big mistake was made by Trump and he continures compounding the wrong policy.
      Caller on Rush today had a great question. He said what is the goal of this policiy? Is the policy to minimized the number of deaths or to prevent everybody from not getting sick? If it is the former you would isolate the vulnerable population like those in nursing homes and those with diabetes and obesity, etc and not do the lockdown. If the goal is to prevent anybody from getting sick then you would do what you are doing now and lock up everyone in their house. Rush was saying that Cuomo was saying if you get the illness it’s death but not true as 98% who get the illness recover. Sweden protected the elderly and those with preexisting conditions and left the country open. Michigan about the same size as Sweden in population, locked down and have twice the deaths as Sweden.

But it appears to have remained the same which I think is a problem for a lot of people who need to get back to work. I’m retired and will self isolate until the HCQ and other clinical trials are finished or a vaccine is developed. Many families live paycheck to paycheck. When I first started working full time I to lived from paycheck to paycheck but I never had the economy turned completely off on me like it is now! There are millions without a paycheck waiting on unemployment or the Covid-19 stimulus check who have NO money for anything right now! That’s scary! The shutdown needs to end now! Tell the elderly and those with significant health issues to stay put and let everyone else go back to work!

    83% SURVIVAL IN COVID-19 PATIENTS WITH MODERATE/SEVERE ACUTE RESPIRATORY
    DISTRESS SYNDROME TREATED IN NEW YORK WITH MESOBLAST’S CELL THERAPY
    REMESTEMCEL-L

    Key points:
    • 83% survival in ventilator-dependent COVID-19 patients (10/12) with moderate/severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) treated with two infusions of Mesoblast’s allogeneic cell therapy remestemcel-L within the first five days under emergency compassionate use at New York City’s Mt Sinai hospital during the period March-April 2020
    • 75% (9/12) have successfully come off ventilator support within a median of 10 days
    • These results contrast with only 9% of ventilator-dependent COVID-19 patients being able to come off ventilators with standard of care treatment and only 12% survival in ventilator-dependent COVID-19 patients at two major referral hospital networks in New York during the same time period1,2
    • This compassionate use treatment experience has informed the design of the clinical protocol for the randomized, placebo-controlled Phase 2/3 trial of remestemcel-L in ventilator-dependent COVID-19 moderate/severe ARDS patients across North America

    For full details see the latest news at https://www.mesoblast.com/

    Thank you to President Trump for ensuring compassionate use and let’s hope this will be one of many successful treatments for the Wuhan virus.

    This evening I had a rational discussion with my 20 something – I asked him how his friends are doing during all this.

    He’s a conservative – his friends are all leftists.

    He explained my thinking on the governor was flawed as what her intention was is too many people were gathering for paint and seeds so you have to order them online.

    Then he has a friend from the UP which has 1 confirmed case and no hospitals, and his friend drove down to Detroit to hang with friends – is he going to drive back up to the UP? What if 7 or 70 or 700 people did that?

    I explained to him the longer this goes on the more suicides, the more alcoholic rage domestics et al.

    They don’t care – the fear of virus has them all under their beds.

    I used to think the quarantine was good for 15 maybe 30 days but I’m not there any more. This is more dangerous than any virus.

    All that said, trump has to go it slow. No way can he let it rip. All eyes on Kemp. If Georgia blows up we will all see – my bet is all will be fine, it’s warmer and people are aware.

    But we have to trust trump – he opens early and outbreak happens it’s over, for all of us.

    Trump is presently praising Democrat governors which throws off the media as well as democrats in general. It is very effective as Trump educates the populace rather than the Media propagandizing the populace.. More people will be inclined to “listen” to what Trump says rather than just “hear” what Trump says.

    More democrats are more apt to watch the pressers than watch a Trump rally. IMO, it is about positioning for a more favorable advantage at a later date. Trump is trying to make it less politically partisan and more about the American people regardless what you happen to be.
