    Now the liar in chief wants to start a couple of more wars. One with the WHO over funding at the time of a pandemic. That’s brilliant. Another within his administration, with the health departments I G. She checked with several hundred hospitals about their needs. Orange man is pissed because she didn’t say “captain may I” to Pence and some admirals(????) before releasing her report. She’ll probably be the next capable person fired.

    The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reminds boaters to abide by the physical distancing protocols recommended by the state to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

    Boat ramps have been crowded this week with the warm weather. The DNR advises only one boat use a ramp at a time to help prevent contact with other boaters.

    A day on the water could provide you with the calm you need right now. Just be sure to follow these recommendations to keep you and your family safe:

    Keep at least 6 feet of distance between you and other boaters and avoid popular areas where people may congregate.
    Stick with your immediate family, but keep groups to fewer than 10 people.
    Bring along hand sanitizer.
    Clean surfaces that others may have touched (e.g boat dock handrails) with wet wipes.

    President Trump is chomping at the bit to throw off the shackles of the pandemic response. Pretty soon, most everyone will be. We are all in when we see the response makes sense, but as this goes on with no light at the end of the tunnel and more power-hungry jerks getting off on getting on our backs, that will change.

    Biden seems to forget (or not know) that Trump invoked the DPA on March 18th to allocate necessary health and medical resources to fighting the Wuhan coronavirus. This limited distribution to things – like gloves and masks – that the civilian market would normally see. Trump invoked the DPA again on March 23rd to prevent the hoarding of those crucial health and medical supplies. On March 27th, Trump used the DPA to force General Motors to produce ventilators. The president utilized the DPA on April 3rd to force 3M to prevent the company from exporting masks to other countries while the United States has a shortage of personal protective equipment. How many more times does Trump need to invoke the DPA before Biden realizes (or accepts) that it’s being used?

      Trump cowardly did not use it at first until he was pressured by Democrats….you dumbass.

      “Trump said he would invoke the Defense Production Act after mounting pressure from Democratic lawmakers, who sent the president a letter earlier in March urging him to use its powers.

      But he put off invoking it, saying in a March 18 tweet that he would only use it “in a worst case scenario.”

    Phoenix TV was established under Chinese leader Jiang Zemin in the early 1990s specifically as a government and intelligence tool for overseas influence operations.” The goal of the propaganda machine is to garner support for the regime’s policies and downplay atrocities, like human rights abuses. Phoenix is “nominally privately owned” but that its main investor is the state-owned enterprise China Mobile.

    China allowed Chinese New Year to be celebrated which led to scores of people being exposed. In all, some 5 million people had left Wuhan by the time the Chinese government got its act together. It was too late. And now, their incompetence caused this pandemic. In New York DeBlasio allowed Chinese New Year Celebrations to continue spreading the disease throughout New York.

    China lied and people died. In December, China ordered its scientists to destroy samples that showed they had a pneumonia-like virus on their hands. They strong-armed doctors from trying to spread the word, kept medical staff in the dark, and prevented new cases of what we know was the Wuhan Coronavirus, or COVID-19, from being reported. And now doctors who tried to raise awareness have vanished.

    The Democrats are trying to do everything they can to take care of the American people? If that’s the case then why did Pelosi come in at the last minute and completely blow up the bipartisan, bicameral deal that was made without her? Oh. That’s right. It’s because she wanted to use this stimulus plan to fundamentally transform our country. Her wish list had ridiculous demands, like bailing out the USPS, upping the federal minimum wage to $15 an hour and offsetting airline emissions by 2025. Clyburn himself even said the Wuhan coronavirus relief package was the perfect opportunity to further their agenda.

    Democrats are hypocrites, especially when it comes to “rules for thee but not for me.” New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio decided to use a public gym minutes before public facilities were ordered to close to prevent the spread of the Wuhan coronavirus. Apparently the order was important enough for every other New Yorker to follow but not for him. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot decided to follow in de Blasio’s footsteps and put herself above Illinois Gov. J. B. Pritzke’s stay-at-home order. Even though salons and barbershops across the state are currently closed, Lightfoot decided to get a haircut.

    Its’ time America to quit being stupid. TP is American manufactured, water is the same, soup is the same, as well as thousands of other products. Italy had a huge death count due to it’s population base is largely over 66, and they were allowed to commute between Wuhun ,China till way too late. Our model for America to defeat this virus is miscued, figures have been wrong all along due to the Chinese/WHO deliberately falsifying them. America built it’s attack-the-virus model based on these false figures. Why didn’t we simply ask the American population over 65 to quarantine themselves for 90 days and allow the American economy to continue. Why? because the false narrative media needs Trump brought down and if you speak outside their ‘box’ on ideas, you were Unamerican. You were economy over lives. This is ridiculous, both can work at the same time. OUR LIBERAL MEDIA caused businesses to decide to stay open and risk even one employee who could sue if contracting Covid or close, like they both can’t coexists. Waivers could have been signed by employees whom chose to work. South Korea is doing it, they sent students back last Monday even. China says their new cases are shrinking and closed last new hospital. I am going back to full time road work on Monday, friends are opening their hair salon and many more businesses will open this Monday. If your elderly or have underlined issues, stay home. Funny that in Queens NY, epicenter central, 400 were in the central park last Sunday, CA had open Farmers Markets. Yet both these sanctuary /dems areas are begging for aid…hummmmmm. Chloroquine and Zpac works, ask Dr. Oz. The treatment is here, the vaccine will come later. If Cuomo in NY won’t approve the treatment for his New Yorker’s, they will die in big numbers and he’ll have to answer for it. America starts reopening. Turn off the democratic media for 30 days and 80% of our problems get solved.

    Around Feb. 7th, Trump sent 17.8 TONS of PPE, personal protective gear, which was the stockpile left by Obama’s Pandemic Response Team that Trump disbanded and defunded. As expected, Trump now blames Obama for the shortage of supplies for American hospitals, doctors, and nurses that the Trump himself gave away. He’s blaming yet another one of his screwups on Obama. https://www.politicususa.com/2020/03/29/trump-sends-17-8-tons-of-us-supplies-to-china-then-blames-obama-for-ppe-shortage.html

      Book of Revelation 15.5 – 10: And the beast was given a mouth uttering haughty and blasphemous words, and it was allowed to exercise authority for forty-two months. 6 It opened its mouth to utter blasphemies against God, blaspheming his name and his dwelling,a that is, those who dwell in heaven. 7 Also it was allowed to make war on the saints and to conquer them. b And authority was given it over every tribe and people and language and nation, 8 and all who dwell on earth will worship it, everyone whose name has not been written before the foundation of the world in the book of life of the Lamb who was slain. 9 If anyone has an ear, let him hear:

      10 If anyone is to be taken captive,
      to captivity he goes;
      if anyone is to be slain with the sword,
      with the sword must he be slain.

Perhaps if he cut the number down to every 3-4 days, then he would get more coverage. Besides, many of you are for re-opening the economy, so when a station decides to keep its revenue coming in (through commercials), why are you complaining?

    We need to open the U.S. economy before it’s too late, before we’re all doomed — not from coronavirus but from the fallout of a Great Depression. Here is the compromise. Here are the new rules. Anyone who wants to stay home can. If you want to collect welfare, food stamps and unemployment, you can. Anyone at high risk — seniors, the sick, the obese, those with illness — should shelter at home.

      You and Trump are agitating about this because you know that the one thing that will for sure get an incumbent party thrown out of office is a recession in an election year, and you think it’s worth it to sacrifice a bunch of working people’s lives to keep your stock prices high. The greedy rich actually believe THEY’RE taking care of US, when it’s actually the other way around, and we’re getting damn tired of doing it.

    Why not open America for business again — with tight restrictions? What is happening now makes absolutely no sense. We are allowed to shop at big-box stores like Costco, Walmart and Home Depot; health food stores like Whole Foods and Sprouts; grocery stores; pet stores; auto part stores; pawn shops; marijuana stores; liquor stores; and gun stores. And get this: Golf courses are open. If all of that is allowed, why can’t we open all stores and businesses but with the same health precautions and restrictions?

    Its’ time America to quit being stupid. TP is American manufactured, water is the same, soup is the same, as well as thousands of other products. Italy had a huge death count due to it’s population base is largely over 66, and they were allowed to commute between Wuhun ,China till way too late. Our model for America to defeat this virus is miscued, figures have been wrong all along due to the Chinese/WHO deliberately falsifying them. America built it’s attack-the-virus model based on these false figures. Why didn’t we simply ask the American population over 65 to quarantine themselves for 90 days and allow the American economy to continue. Why? because the false narrative media needs Trump brought down and if you speak outside their ‘box’ on ideas, you were Unamerican. You were economy over lives. This is ridiculous, both can work at the same time. OUR LIBERAL MEDIA caused businesses to decide to stay open and risk even one employee who could sue if contracting Covid or close, like they both can’t coexists. Waivers could have been signed by employees whom chose to work. South Korea is doing it, they sent students back on Monday even. China says their new cases are shrinking. I am going back to full time road work on Monday, friends are opening their hair salon and many more businesses will open this Monday. If your elderly or have underlined issues, stay home. Funny that in Queens NY, epicenter central, 400 were in the central park last Sunday, CA had open Farmers Markets. Yet both these sanctuary /dems areas are begging for aid…hummmmmm. Chloroquine and Zpac works, ask Dr. Oz. The treatment is here, the vaccine will come later. If Cuomo in NY won’t approve the treatment for his New Yorker’s, they will die in big numbers and he’ll have to answer for it. America starts reopening this Monday.

    * Trump declined to use the World Health Organization’s test like other nations. Back in January, over a month before the first Co-vid19 case, the Chinese posted a new mysterious virus and within a week, Berlin virologists had produced the first diagnostic test. By the end of February, the WHO had shipped out tests to 60 countries. Oh, but not our government. We declined the test even as a temporary bridge until the CDC could create its own test. The question is why? We don’t know but what to look for is which pharmaceutical company eventually manufactures the test and who owns the stock. Keep tuned.

    * Trump pretended the virus had been contained.

    * Trump left a cruise ship at sea for days, denying them proper hospital care, rather than increase his numbers in America.

    Repeat. We do not blame Trump for the virus. We blame him for gutting the nation’s preparations to deal with it. We blame him for bungling testing and allowing it to spread uninhibited. We blame him for wasting taxpayer money on applause lines at his rallies (like The Wall). We blame him for putting his own political life over American human life. I hope this clears things up.”

    This is why the U.S. has the highest number of cases on the planet!!!

    Pushing false narratives does nothing to help the nation fight COVID-19, a global health pandemic that Americans have died at the hands of. Americans deserve to see Republicans and Democrats united and working together in good faith, not using a national crisis to score political points.

      So Trump should stop pushing that false narrative, like that the virus is a hoax, for example.

    Secretary Mnuchin confirmed that Americans will receive their compensation in a matter of weeks, not months: Secretary @stevenmnuchin1: “I don’t know where you’re hearing these things. I told you this would be three weeks. I’m now committing to two weeks. We’re delivering on our commitments. The IRS which I oversee, within two week the first money will be in people’s accounts.” Sec. Mnuchin’s sentiment directly refutes the alarmist narrative pushed by Democratic Senate candidates in swing states, all of whom are allies with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY):

    The low-priced China manufactures that Americans have been buying seem to have carried too high a cost. President Xi Jinping’s China has become more hostile to human rights at home and more menacing abroad.

    On one side is the People’s Republic of China, where COVID-19 apparently transferred from animal to human hosts. The government has deliberately lied about human-to-human transmission, persecuted to the point of death doctors who warned of its dangers and is still certainly lying about its continuing prevalence. On the other side of this Iron Curtain — until the virus appeared, by dozens of airline flights every day — are places that seem to have responded most successfully to the pandemic: Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong.

    Does Lindell’s vocal Christianity so thoroughly repulse them that they would reject his contribution if they could? It seems so, based on their reaction. That’s how you know it’s hatred — that they would forgo his life-saving works because of his beliefs.

      Bullshit. The problem everybody’s having is that it was completely inappropriate in every way. It was neither the time nor the place for proselytizing, nor had he any business even being there, since there are many companies, a number of them here in Iowa, doing exactly the same thing, so why single this clown out? Furthermore, the first Pilgrims came here for freedom of religion, since they didn’t want to be forced to practice an official state religion, which is exactly what this seems to be. Americans want actual information on what the White House is doing to cope with this serious threat, and Trump can’t do it without making it about himself. In the middle of a COVID-19 update, he interjects that he “just discovered he’s Number 1 on Facebook!” Most of those posts, by the way, are very unflattering ones, which he’s not even smart enough to know.

    As liberal networks debate whether to pull broadcasting pressers from the president of the United States because they don’t like him, one anti-Trump network might not have a choice if they want to boost ratings. CNN had quite a dismal first quarter, with not a single one of their programs cracking the top 20 in the rating chart.

    Calling for a federal investigation, U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley questioned Tuesday whether giant meatpacking companies are using the public health pandemic to “gouge” U.S. cattle producers, who have seen prices for their beef fall 3.5% over the past three weeks even as demand has surged. “During this period of time, through no fault of their own, many farmers in Iowa have seen the prices of their products plummet, something you wouldn’t expect would happen in a crisis,” the Iowa Republican said Tuesday in a call with reporters. Grassley, who plans to ask the U.S. Justice and Agriculture departments to investigate, said futures prices for live cattle are falling at the same time consumers are flooding grocery stores..

    Chinese leaders allowed hundreds of millions of people to travel across mainland China during the Lunar New Year in late January, spreading the virus further throughout the country. Mayor De Blasio allowed the celebration of thousands of Chinese people on New York streets starting the pandemic in New York.

    The Chinese Communist Party refuses to admit fault and instead proclaims itself the model of how to contain the virus. Chinese leaders have spread venomous propaganda that COVID-19 originated in the U.S. – even though the vast majority of the evidence indicates the disease originated in a “wet market” in Wuhan.

    The Chinese Communist Party’s record is clear – it chose to sacrifice thousands of its own citizens and threaten the health and economy of the entire world to try and save face. For that, the Chinese Communist Party “will be nailed on the pillar of shame for eternity.”

    During this world wide crisis the President donates his salary to charity and meals to health care workers. The Democrats worry about funding their pet pork projects and promoting the DNC agenda. I hope everyone remembers this in November.

      Trump’s salary is a pittance to what seems to be going on in the Executive Branch. The grift seems real and obvious. His son-in-law is in charge of many important directives and has no experience (or business at all, no clearance) to be there. My opinion, he’s looking for ways to score for the Trump business empire. Low-information folk point to the “donation” of salary (masterful mis-direction by Trump) and run with it while ignoring what appears to be going on with Trump and Kushner, not to mention Ivanka, likely. These people should be nowhere near a pandemic response, nor peace negotiations in the Middle East, etc. Trump is putting federal persons in his hotels at hundreds of dollars per night. Just look it up when you take a break from posting dozens of pro-Trump posts here all day long and you will learn something. America is for sale and the President is cashing in.

          Not only that, but he “donates” his salary by sending personal checks to the government agencies he blabs about, when he knows very well that they CAN’T LEGALLY CASH THEM. They either return the checks, or stash them in a drawer somewhere, but they’re never deposited, so he’s not out a dime, and in fact makes money on this scam.
