    American tariffs on China imposed by the Trump Administration seems to have many high level positions within the Chinese government upset. These tariffs which have never before been in place and is sending well deserve billions of dollars back into the US, this has affected Chinese economic numbers. The Chinese regime has banked a positive trade balance for years, these tariffs have equaled the playing field. Chinese leaks are stating China knew about the virus months earlier. WHOrg would have some explaining to do.

    This pandemic may be the final nail in the coffin for local newspapers. Its been reported that “Gannett (owns the DM Register) emailed staff this morning saying the company will implement furloughs and pay reductions which for some staff ‘will begin as soon as this week.'”

    One has to think Lee Enterprises, which has been shedding employees for years or farming their jobs out overseas, will be punishing what’s left at the Glob. Sad, but probably necessary. No product coming out of 300 Washington worth buying anyway. It might even mean that the Glob will have to drop their Chamber membership at some point and maybe even their seat on the board of directors.

      This is Trumps plan. He is utilizing Eric Hoffer’s playbook to keep himself in the WH.

      “Moreover, mass movements need an object of hate which unifies believers, and “the ideal devil is a foreigner.” Mass movements need a devil. But in reality, the “hatred of a true believer is actually a disguised self-loathing …” and “the fanatic is perpetually incomplete and insecure.” Through their fanatical action and personal sacrifice, the fanatic tries to give their life meaning.”

    Mayor Cantrell should realize that insulting President Trump on national television is not the best way to foster close cooperation from the federal government. It is time for her to end the nasty political blame game and start working with President Trump to deal with this disease. Scoring cheap political points is always distasteful, but it is especially offensive when lives are in danger.

    Liberals are made up of groups who don’t see anything to gain by rushing back to work. Some of them didn’t work before this crisis. Some are protected by union contracts and union pensions. Some work for the government — and they have jobs for life. Some have lived on a welfare check for much of their life. Some want to be paid bigger checks for being unemployed than for working. In the end, they feel they can stay home, take no risk and have the government pay them.

    Biden falsely claimed in an interview on ABC’s “This Week” on March 1, “[the Trump administration] cut the funding for the CDC.” Factcheck.org acknowledged the Trump administration did propose funding cuts to the CDC, but funding has actually increased during the Trump presidency as a result of actions taken by Congress.

      There are many ways to cut funding – one, the method used by this administration, is to avoid appointing people to positions of authority in agencies. That is what trump did.

    The Obama administration similarly proposed funding cuts to the CDC, including disaster preparedness programs, even after the Swine Flu pandemic left 274,304 Americans hospitalized and 12,469 dead between April 2009 and April 2010.

    Some of the Obama administration’s cuts specifically took aim at the CDC’s preparedness initiatives. “Now, President Obama’s 2012 budget calls for paring some of that spending. Funding for a public health emergency preparedness program run by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention was cut by about $72 million below fiscal 2010 levels in the budget proposal.”

    “The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) takes a hit of about $270 million in the Obama administration’s proposed fiscal year 2014 budget, including significant cuts to biodefense and emergency preparedness programs,” according to a 2013 post from the Center For Infectious Disease Research And Policy. In 2015, amid a measles outbreak, President Obama also called for a $50 million cut in federal immunization funding.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Friday announced that he is requiring those arriving from Louisiana to self-quarantine, similar to an order he established last week requiring people from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut to do the same. Health care officials in Florida are worried that a number of people will flee New Orleans as more positive Wuhan coronavirus cases are reported. They believe that as the positive numbers in Louisiana rise, people will head to the Sunshine State.

          USA health care system is a diabolical perversion of capitalism. You can die, remain sick, get sicker, get deformed from poor care, get denied care, a doctor can lie to your face and recommend an unnecessary procedure or pill, it does not matter – as long as the parent corporation profits. Pretty much pure evil.

    From the onset of this Cuomo has made it worse for his people. Look up his interviews from the first and second week of March. Cuomo was telling people to get together in groups and go to movies and what not. Then he made a play to sell them all his prison labor hand sanitizer, which was a lie and was not actually made by who he said it was. Then Cuomo blamed Trump for not doing anything. And now Cuomo wants to blame Trump for doing too much. He’s a joke. It’s identity politics. The only reason Cuomo is on the news is because Joe Biden can’t handle it and the DNC needs a representative. He’s a clown.

Same people elected to office go to those meetings, sit on that “board” and get their marching orders from Michael Jackson lookalike Robin and her ilk who let them participate so it looks safe and official. USA has become a rich banana republic of fake democracy.

    Kim Jong Un has been testing rockets again over the Sea of Japan. Transfixed by the coronavirus crisis, however, the world is paying him no attention. We should make a final offer to Kim Jong Un to pull our U.S. forces from South Korea and lift sanctions for verifiable reductions and restraints on his nuclear arsenal. If Pyongyang refuses to talk, we should tell him we are going home and are allowing South Korea and Japan to develop their own nuclear weapons. And let Kim deal with them….
