NEC Director Larry Kudlow Discusses Phase 4 COVID Package, School Incentives and China Confrontation…

National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow has been doing a great job in his role as an economic cheerleader and sounding board for President Trump on COVID mitigation. In this interview Kudlow discusses a ‘potential’ phase-4 stimulus package targeted to offset very specific sectors at risk from continued COVID-19 closures.

Additionally, Kudlow notes there could be financial incentives, offsets to expenses, to help schools re-open this fall in the event COVID mitigation creates higher costs. Lastly, Kudlow again notes that China is in a precarious position from the outlook of the White House.

.

It sure seems this COVID economic battle is more psychological than anything else. The media is pushing the fear narrative hard… very hard.

              There are NO “Red States” or “Blue States”,…( wow, I sound like Justice Roberts, lol).

              Every State has, to varying degrees, BLUE cities, purple suburbs, and the farther out you go, the redder it gets.

              This applies, with only slight variations, to California and N.Y. State, as much as to Utah or Wyoming.

              Perhaps one reason is because it is much easier to commit ballot fraud in big cities?
              Universities generally locate in Big cities.

              “Underpriviledged” populations tend to aggregate in big cities, being dependant on Social services.

              At any rate, I strongly urge ALL those who can, to get the hell OUT of cities, if at all possible; your life could well depend on it.

              BUT, you don’t necesarily need to move THAT far; often 30, 50 or at most 100 miles, takes you into major RED territory.

              SOME people may have occupations which just aren’t in demand, in rural areas. Consider changing occupations.

              ALMOST everything is cheaper, out here. LAND and HOUSING is WAY cheaper. Auto insurance, too. Those things which are transported by truck; food and especially perishables are SLIGHTLY more expensive, but then they are probably trucked into the big city, as well. And, according to Sundances maganomics, WILL come down.

              IF we DO get into the CW2 many are anticipating, the Big cities will be even more dangerous than they are now.

              My wife and I made the move years ago, and are so glad we did! For TREEPERS, who are MAGA, I say “Come on IN, the waters FINE!”

              For libertards running away from the naturally cosequences of the policies they supported with there votes,….well out here in rural America, most all of us have a whole shelf of spare shower curtains,….and there is an understanding you DO NOT bury bodies on your neighbors property.

              Take em out in the toolies, ferchristsake! Said in JEST,…of coarse!

        One final note on leaving/moving; consider the RV lifestyle. Its NOT for everyone, and to do it right you need to do your homework, and recognise its a major change.

        Given that, there ARE a # of advantages.

        Not all trailer parks are shiteholes, some are quite nice.

        Where I live, the monthly space rent for parks in the area is around $200/month, plus utes. Comes to around $350-$450/month, total.

        Try to find any other accomodations close to that.

        And, if you don’t like where your at,…MOVE. And WHEN you move, there is no renting a moving van, having yard sales or donating all your stuff not ‘worth packing’, then packing everything up, and on the other end unpacking, and not being able to find anything for months, in your new digs.

        Takes an hour to unhook my home from water, power and sewer (and thats generous).

        Takes two hours to set boxes on the floor and take down things that would fall in transit, and secure cabinets and fridge door.

        Drive to new location, reverse process.
        And, the same evening of my moving day, I am sitting in my recliner, watching my t.v., reaching for by bag of goldfish, but 250 miles from where I was, that morning!

        Just something to consider,…

          My first summer in GA I thought I needed a machete to cut thru it as I walked around the machine shop. The next summer I barely noticed it. Now it is the heat that drives me indoors.
          One secret is if you work in an office or at home, get out in the spring to acclimate yourself to the summer. If you stay inside all spring and decide to take a walk in August, you are not going to get far no matter what age you are.

      For those who haven’t opened the link, there are some priceless summary statements!
      FTA
      …enormous questions demand media enquiry:

      Narrow, conformist and ideology-riddled education has left our electorates vulnerable to persuasion based on unfounded assertion: élite minorities are doing the thinking for them.
      This is reflected in the serial insults to the citizens’ intelligence in politico-media output, and the unthinking acceptance behaviour of those citizens in obeying the risible “advice” they are given.
      The conflict of interest between the medical “experts” and the monied vaccinators goes largely unrecognised by the average voter, who still labours under the illusion that our legislative representatives put our needs ahead of all others.
      The fact that civil police forces have been profoundly poiticised passes most voters by: the idea of telling a knee-bending idiot copper to fuck off simply doesn’t occur to them.

      Inevitably, we arrive back at the Perfect Storm: electorates with sheepish tendencies ruled over by wolves in sheep’s clothing largely assured of media support in maintaining their disguise.

      The enormous enigma that remains uninvestigated will not go away: why did perfectly intelligent leaders take such a crass decision on the virus mortality v GDP loss cost benefit analysis – when anyone with GCSE maths would’ve rejected it out of hand?

      The People live in vain hope of a cure for Covid 19. My diagnosis ignores one unexceptional virus in favour of the broader malaise: a disinformed citizenry far too willing to accept any old claptrap put out to distract, distort and disqualify their natural (but woefully atrophied) ability to tell Truth from Tosh.

        We may not like it, but critisising PDJT for NOT falling into the myriad of traps they set for him, while perhaps emotionally satisfying ‘venting’ really gets US no closer to our goals.

        HE is the quarterback. He steps up to the line, sees the disposition of the other team, and calls the play.

        Same with Louisiana John Bel Edwards. Mask are mandatory now. We keep moving backwards. I fully expect to move back to Phase one by the weekend. The kicker for me is the snitches in New Orleans and Baton Rouge. People are tripping over themselves to turn a business in for any infraction. In my small town outside of New Orleans there are 2 cases of Covid. Two. Both doing well.

        A lot of the elderly patients are doing much worse than pre shutdown. They have lost muscle mass by sitting and now a lot of them dependent on walkers and some sort of aid. The media is to blame for a lot of the hysteria. These elderly have just stayed in and sat for 3.5 months. No going back to productive and fit for them. They complain of being “weak” but are too afraid to go outside.

        I hope to see a President Trump “freedom to all on Nov 4th proclamation.” This bs is not going to end.

        I will spare you all of the “public education school starting ideas” going on here. Dumb does not begin to describe it. Help! We are in the Twilight Zone in Louisiana.

    It’s all a SCAM!

    As I’ve watch this thing go on, it’s obvious to me that this was a planned attack. It’s all about the election and how the D-rats intend to steal it.

    There is no truth anymore. We’ve been subjected to lies for years now and it has gone on so long, there is no reality left. Reality has been chipped away a piece at a time since the Clintoon administration. Lying about the weather, lying about the economy, lying about gender and of course, lying about this virus; can we believe anything other than what President Trump tells us? And he is a lone voice in the wilderness.

    I have never seen so much voodoo science as I’ve seen with this virus SCAM! We are suppose to believe that this virus does not succumb to the factors that destroy normal virus? e.g. heat and UV? We are suppose to ignore the fact that during the O clown administration, that Fraudi declared HCQ a solution to this type of virus? But now, it’s not? We are suppose to ignore reports from around the world of an effective treatment for the virus and deprive our own citizens of this treatment due to the CDC?

    We are suppose to ignore that the CDC is nothing more than a subdivision of the DNC staffed with political activists who will KILL anyone to regain power?

    I’m tired of the lies and the real criminals getting a free ride. while the rest of us suffer. JMHO

      You mentioned lying about the weather…makes me think…

      I have noticed something subtlely different this year in my local weather reports in blue MA. Yes it’s a hot humid mostly dry summer and yes, thunderstorms are frequent. We all know this – it happens every year.

      But I’ve never before noticed thunderstorms forecast _every single freakin day_. The percentage chance is always shown as 51%. And they only actually happen with pretty normal regularity – maybe 1 or 2 a week, sometimes none. The forecasts seem to be getting less accurate.

      Today the forecast (AccuWeather) was even weirder than usual. Instead of showing actual rain, it showed a gray circle saying “Rain _may_ form in the next 10 minutes.” (It didn’t.)

      _May_ form?

      It’s almost as if the order has gone out to discourage people from going outside or gathering in groups outside…

      …Nah… that couldn’t be… Could it?

      If you aren’t destroying your enemies, it’s because you have been conquered and assimilated, you do not even have an idea of who your enemies are. You have been brainwashed into believing you are your own enemy, and you are set against yourself. The enemy is laughing at you as you tear yourself to pieces. That is the most effective warfare an enemy can launch on his foes: confounding them.

        Trump must get other experts to EDUCATE us on this thing. A shaded map with hotspots (southern border counties/ northern mexico), and explain that we rushed an imperfect test out too soon. It’s not specific enough, shows positive for pieces of strands of the virus RNA, and inactive virus from previous infection, etc. How about explaining why we do not randomly test people for things unless they are sick and need diagnosis and treatment?

        If he educates the public, some of fhem can calm down. I’m tired of seeing idiots driving alone wearing a mask. It offends me. And if shopping is available, school should be. Protect only the vulnerable.

        Then, use carrot and stick to incentivize commerce and school/penalize interference with interstate commerce and withholding of special education and mental health services that must accompany these shutdowns.

      Really. Go homeschooling! It is great. I started homeschooling my 1st grand child when I was 70. He wanted me to. I was pretty unsure but met with encouraging Moms and decided I would try for 1 year. We went from 7th grade till HS graduation. I loved it and learned a lot. He did very well. (You can have your child tested to reassure yourself he is really learning. You will be surprised how much better he scores than his school counterparts!).
      Graduated as Eagle Scout at the same time. Bible College with BA & Master. Employed right away. Married at 22, Home owner at 23. Conservative, morally upright happy couple.

      The homeschooling curriculums make things easy. Follow the lessons, the instructions, the tests and gradings. It really is all done for you.
      Another advantage is the flexibility & no time lost on social indoctrination, so there is time for a youngster to work and to start attending Junior College at 14 1/2 and accumulate transferable college credits.

      My other 4 grandchildren are homeschooled by their Mom. That is like teaching 4 different grades being they are 2 years apart. The 2 older ones also started working and attending JC classes. They never set a foot in a public school and have plenty of social activities with other homeschooling families. And all of that in the liberal Ca Bay Area.

      We are not rich. They live on one salary, but a capable homemaker Mom can make the dollar go a long way adding growing a garden, canning food and cooking nutritious inexpensive meals. She literally loves her homemaker lifestyle with all of its business.

    It’s no suprise that the Democrats and MSM are in complete deflection mode when it comes to coronavirus. All we constantly hear from the MSM are questions about hand wringing concerns regarding the increased number of cases constantly being directed at POTUS Trump and Kayleigh McEnany. That said, it’s getting frustrating that no one is directly answering back that it’s not the number of cases that are of concern but the number of deaths with respect to the number of confirmed cases and the resulting mortality rate. Given that the number of total cases, as a result of increased testing, and likewise deaths have increased, the mortality rate has remained low/the same and the number of deaths keeps dropping on a daily basis. Therefore, all the media doom and gloom manufactured optics doesn’t reflect reality and is actually politically driven because the Democrats and their enablers, the media, have nothing to remotely challenge and prevent POTUS Trump from being elected to a second term and regaining the majority in the House and Senate.

    Treepers, hold the line.

    What you are seeing is a reaction by people who don’t want to see President Trump re-elected, to the amazing employment figures that we’ve seen the last two months. They have a visceral hatred for anyone, not just PDJT, who rises above the parapet, or strives to make something of themselves. Here in Ireland, we call it Tall Poppy Syndrome, or just plain begrudgery. Lots and lots of it over here.

    You’ve got to rise above it, and stop allowing yourselves to be sucked in to their agenda, as hard as that might be. You’re hitting “peak alarm” for this cycle, but very soon that will subside. It will keep coming back in other cycles, but each time with diminishing returns. How many people now yawn any time they hear about Russia, Russia, Russia?

    You’re now at 40,000,000 tests, most of which would be people who were most vulnerable, and most alarmed. Just like the mortality rate going down, the number of positive tests are also going to go down vis a vis the number of tests done. You’ve also now got a reasonably cheap number of “cures” in HCQ/ Zinc, and the asthma inhaler (Can’t remember it’s name right now).

    And there is still nearly four months to the election. By that time, 10million more people will be back to employment, at least another 100 miles of Wall built. If it looks like PDJT is going to get re-elected (even if the “polls” say he is going to lose), the DOW will be at or around 30,000.

    All you’ve got to do is hold the line, push back (peacefully), and make sure to get out and vote.
