I wonder why there's so many cases of Corona virus in NYC.... I wonder how many cases of #coronavirus the expert virologists from @seattleflustudy can trace back to this excellent advice from New York City Mayor

New York Times: Christians Are To Blame For Coronavirus Outbreak Posted March 27, 2020 in Politics

On Friday, the New York Times released an op-ed written by journalist Katherine Stewart that blamed religious voters, primarily Christians, for the coronavirus outbreak.
Stewart argues that the religious voters who support President Trump encourage governance that doesn't pay attention to science.
In the op-ed, titled “The Road to Coronavirus Hell Was Paved by Evangelicals,” Stewart writes:
Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.
At least since the 19th century, when the proslavery theologian Robert Lewis Dabney attacked the physical sciences as “theories of unbelief,” hostility to science has characterized the more extreme forms of religious nationalism in the United States.
The far-left journalist continues by quoting pastors who refused to close down churches at the beginning of the outbreak.
Stewart said: “By all accounts, President Trump’s tendency to trust his gut over the experts on issues like vaccines and climate change does not come from any deep-seated religious conviction.”
She added: “But he is perfectly in tune with the religious nationalists who form the core of his base.”
Stewart's claims are completely bogus. Check out what Breitbart reported:
Since the start of the coronavirus crisis, Trump has repeatedly deferred to scientists, doctors and experts in the administration — particularly Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Debbie Birx, who feature in his daily press briefings.
Notably, scientists have confirmed that President Trump’s travel bans on China and Europe slowed and limited the spread of the disease in the United States. In Fauci’s case, he specifically urged the travel ban be imposed on Europe.
All of the Democratic candidates for president opposed those bans.
Former Vice President Joe Biden called the China ban “hysterical” and xenophobic, and panned the Europe ban after Trump announced it.
What Stewart failed to mention is that many prominent Democratic leaders failed to take precautions to stop the coronavirus outbreak in America. One example is New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who actually encouraged New Yorkers to go "out on the town."
In early March, de Blasio encouraged the citizens of New York to go about their normal lives and "get out on the town despite coronavirus."
“Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus,” de Blasio tweeted on March 2nd.
Instead of social distancing, de Blasio encouraged the people of New York to go to movies.
“I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see “The Traitor,” he said on Twitter while referring to a new crime drama.
Check out the tweet below:

Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see “The Traitor” @FilmLinc. If “The Wire” was a true story + set in Italy, it would be this film.

To all who were WAITING for the simulous package to be passed...Blame QUEEN PELOSI...!!.................... I HOPE THE GENERAL POPULATION OF REGISTERED DEMO-RATS REMEMBER JUST HOW LITTLE THEIR "LEADERS" THINK OF THEM......... Adding all of this garbage to the bill and causing a DELAY in getting it passed.....I hope all you Dems remember this in NOVEMBER....!!!

Queen Pelosi’s Coronavirus Bill Pushes Provisions Unrelated To The Crisis     Henry Rodgers March 23, 2020 Daily Caller

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Monday introduced a massive coronavirus bill with a number of provisions completely unrelated to the crisis.

Pelosi’s coronavirus bill is 1,119 pages and contains provisions including, “conducting risk-limiting audits of results of elections,” bailing out the postal service, requiring early voting, same-day voter registration, requiring the airlines to fully offset their carbon emissions, gives you chance to look up greenhouse gas emissions from the flights you want to take, and much more that have nothing to do with helping solve the crisis at hand.

“The country is burning and House Democrats would rather delay passage of direct relief to working families and small business so they can manipulate the way we conduct elections, bail out the postal service, impose greenhouse gas mandates on the airlines, and ensure diversity on corporate boards,” Rachel Bovard, Senior Director of Policy at the Conservative Partnership Institute told the Daily Caller.

The bill also reportedly gives unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions, increases fuel emissions standards for airlines and expands wind and solar tax credits.

“The bill does take a strong step in prohibiting stock buybacks and limiting executive compensation and dividends from corporations who get taxpayer-funded loans. If she started and stopped there, that would be a helpful proposal. As it stands, it’s lost in the rest of the completely partisan Democrat agenda that is House Democrats response,” Bovard continued.

Pelosi said Sunday that she will halt negotiations with the Senate and move to pass her own coronavirus package in the House, which could drag things out longer than many expected. Pelosi’s legislation will be a $1.6 trillion emergency package, according to Politico.

“The American people are counting on their leaders to deliver results now, but Pelosi and Senate Democrats cost our country at least a day. Small businesses, families, and hospitals are still waiting for aid because Democrats want to ‘restructure things to fit their vision,'” a GOP aide told the Daily Caller, referring to House Majority Whip James Clyburn’s comments to caucus members last week that the bill was “a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

The Speaker’s $1.6 trillion emergency package comes as Senate and House leaders could not lock down a deal Sunday for an expected vote. “From my standpoint, we’re apart,” Pelosi told reporters as she went into McConnell’s office Sunday morning to discuss the legislation.

Meanwhile, The Senate again failed to pass a procedural cloture vote Monday on a phase-three coronavirus stimulus bill as there has been continued internal dispute between both parties.

The vote was 49-46. Republicans needed 60 yes votes to pass the vote. On Sunday night the Senate tried to pass a cloture vote but failed 47-47 as no Democrats would jump on board.
Pelosi’s office did not respond to the Daily Caller when asked about the list of provisions unrelated to the coronavirus.

West Virginia legalizes concealed carry without a permit
By Stephen Gutowski | Washington Free Beacon

The West Virginia legislature successfully overturned the veto of Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto on Saturday in a bipartisan effort to enact permitless gun carry in the state.

Beginning June 5, anyone over age 21 who can legally possess a firearm will be allowed to carry it concealed on their person without having to obtain a permit. West Virginia has long allowed permitless open carry but, like most states, required a permit to carry a concealed firearm. With the new law the state will become the eighth in the nation to implement what gun rights activists call “constitutional carry.”

The law also creates a provisional permitting process for those between the ages of 18 and 20 who wish to carry a concealed firearm within the state. Individuals between the ages of 18 and 20 had previously been excluded from the permitting process altogether.

West Virginia’s move to permitless carry marks the continuation of a national trend that began in 2003. Before then, only Vermont allowed law-abiding adults to carry concealed firearms without a permit. The pace accelerated over the last five years, with seven states adopting the policy.

Concealed carry laws vary from state to state, but most adhere to one of three basic structures. The most popular, which is in effect in 34 states, is commonly referred to as a “shall-issue” structure, where applicants must be issued a permit if they pass a background check along with whatever training and identification requirements are set by the state.

The most restrictive type of concealed carry law, adopted by only eight states, is the “may-issue” structure in which applicants can still be denied a permit even if they meet all of the requirements set out by the state. May-issue concealed carry laws often issue very few concealed carry permits to residents.

Melania Has Incredible Response After Hillary Makes Snide Remark About Her Be Best Initiative

Graham Says Senators Shouldn’t Be Paid If Dems Don’t Help Pass Corona Relief Bill  Martin Walsh

During an interview Tuesday evening on Fox News, the South Carolina Republican told host Martha MacCallum that if Democrats didn’t help pass the coronavirus bill within 48 hours, he would make sure every member and their staff will lose all of their pay.

Graham said that “there is no good reason” why Congress shouldn’t quickly pass the $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill and that they should be punished by the American people if they fail to do so.

Graham argued that “special-interest politics” are what is holding up the passage of the bill.

“There is no good reason left to deny the American people the relief they need,” Graham said. “Every restaurant and bar in South Carolina is closed. As long as you can’t congregate with 10 people or more, the entire economy is shut down. So, people need a paycheck.”

“They need to have burdens taken off them; their student loan payments deferred. There are so many good things in this bill, there’s $2 trillion. It is very generous,” he continued. “It’s very generous, and what’s holding this bill up is special-interest politics and if in the next 48 hours we do not pass this bill, everybody in the country should cut off our pay.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she hopes to pass the spending bill by unanimous consent, which would allow the legislation to move forward without calling lawmakers back to Capitol Hill for a vote.

Graham said he didn’t care how it got done — he just wanted the bill passed immediately so American families and businesses can get financial relief.

“Yeah, we are in a war,” Graham said in response to a question about remote voting. “We’re in a war against a virus.”

“I’m all for trying to jump-start the economy and turn it back on where it makes sense,” he said, “but what is happening in New York could come to South Carolina or any other place if we really don’t watch it here.”

“We are at war with this virus — I want to starve it, I want to bomb it, and I want to kill it,” Graham said. “You starve it by having social distancing … you bomb it by having therapies that make it less lethal, and you kill it with a vaccine.”


I SURELY HOPE TRUMP DOESN'T SIGN THIS....!! Get rid of PELOSI'S additions...Especially the raise for congress....

The "BEAST" raises it's ugly head again.......

Kathy Griffin Rips Trump From Hospital, Claims Unbearable COVID-19 Pain 
14 hours ago

To be clear right off the bat, we don’t wish harm on anyone. After all, we’re not exactly a bunch of Leftists around here.

Because we prefer to fight our battles with truth and sometimes healthy skepticism and sarcasm, we have no need to be wishing
So with that in mind, it brings us no particular joy to report that unhinged Trump hater and former comedian Kathy Griffin has been hospitalized with what she claims are unbearable symptoms of COVID-19.

Griffin, 59, tweeted a picture of herself saying that she presented with “unbearably painful” people ill.symptoms of the virus to a hospital before landing in intensive care.

Even in supposedly unbearable condition, she still had the strength to tweet in response to a message from President Trump, in which he said, “Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far. In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”

Griffin, who’s 99-year-old mother passed last week, posted one photo of herself with a mask on and one of her hospital room, though it was not clear where or when the photos were taken.

Congress Wants Answers About Extremists Plots To Exploit COVID-19 .......AND SOME OF US WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ANSWERS ON WHY CONGRESS (PELOSI AND SCHUMER) WANT TO EXPLOIT THE VIRUS RELIEF PACKAGE....... Haven't they caused enough grief without screwing this up too ??? Where is the ETHICS committee ???

Congress Wants Answers About Extremists Plots To Exploit COVID-19    March 25, 2020 by Tom Knighton

It seems like almost any story I write these days can begin with the phrase “COVID-19 has sparked worries throughout the nation,” only to touch on whatever specifically the story is about. I can write it like that because it’s generally true. Most of the Second Amendment news out there has some bearing on COVID-19.

Hell, most news these days is related to COVID-19.

That’s not really surprising as it has dominated the news cycle long enough that people are looking to find fresh spins on the impact of the disease.

However, it’s also not entirely unlikely that some see the disease as an opportunity. I’m not talking about those who jack up the prices on goods to take advantage of the fear. I’m talking about those who see this as a chance to really create chaos.
Now, Congress wants answers as to what’s being done to combat those extremists.

I disagree with the term "shooting survivor" (highlited below) because from everything I read about the shooting, Hogg wasn't at the school when the shooting occurred, he was at home...!

Head Scratcher: David Hogg Said Something Most Conservatives Can Get Behind
  Beth Baumann   Posted: Mar 25, 2020

Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting survivor David Hogg has become a household name. He's continually pushed the progressive agenda and, in particular, gun control measures. In fact, he co-founded the "March for Our Lives" organization, a student group that's sole focus is on advancing so-called "common sense" gun control measures, like an "assault weapons" ban and "high capacity" magazine ban.

Pro-gun advocates frequently turn their nose up at Hogg's suggestions. Something amazing happened on Wednesday. He actually said something that conservatives could agree with: TikTok, the new social media platform, should be used to slam the Chinese government for their atrocities. In particular, Hogg cited the Chinese regime's refusal to allow Hong Kong to have any form of democracy.

Tik Tok is a national security threat that should only only be used to call out the Chinese government (who controls it) for their atrocities and human rights abuses.

Seriously y'all memes and jokes are fun but downloading the spyware of an authoritarian regime is not.


Trump Smacks Down Reporter Who Asks Him How Many Wuhan Coronavirus Deaths Are Acceptable to Him     Julio Rosas Posted: Mar 25, 20204

                  President Trump swatted away a reporter's question on Wednesday after he asked him how many Wuhan coronavirus deaths are acceptable to him if he did not support a doctor's idea to move forward from voluntary lockdowns.

"The key to getting this economy open as soon as possible is to test everyone who needs testing so when can quarantine all infected individuals and allow everyone else to go back to work immediately. Would you subscribe to that strategy? If not, how many deaths are acceptable?" the reporter asked.

How many? None. How many deaths are acceptable to me? None. If that’s your question. I saw him, I saw his statement, we have tested by far more than anybody, we are tested more than anybody right now, there’s nobody even close. Our tests are the best test, the most accurate tests, but if you’re saying we’re going to test 350 million people — I watched his statement, I disagree with it. We can go to certain states, I can name them now but I’m not going to do that — we can go to certain states right now that have virtually no problem or a very small problem," Trump said. 

This post is written by a cousin of mine, she lives in FLORIDA and she's steamed over all the posts about "why the governor hasn't SHUT Florida down" I'm posting it because I think she's right on point, I just got back from Florida and can attest for most of this whole scenario....!!

J****n C**k J*****n   March 24th 2020  
Trigger warning. Some of you may not like my opinion

All I see as I scroll on is.. "stay home", "we're going to have to stay in longer bc people won't stay in", "can't people just stay home", "people don't listen", "it would all be over if people would just stay home", etc... Also, "shut FL down", "DeSantis has really dropped the ball", "why won't Ron shut us down!!!", Etc...

Everyone is practically begging for socialism.. but that's not what my post is about.

I went to the bank a few days ago. To the bank home. Didn't get out, went through the drive-thru ATM, wiped down afterwards.

I saw hardly anyone... It looked like a ghost town! Straight down 441 to Wells Fargo in front of Lowe's.. there were a few people at Lowe's. Most of the mom pop restaurants like Billy's Cafe were closed. A few chain operations were open offering curbside. We drove around the square just to see it empty. A few people were present in golf carts, but it looked like they were just looking too. No one was out walking around. The ONLY places that was ridiculously packed were Publix & Winn Dixie.

So if people aren't out, the stores are closed already under the strong suggestion of our Governor.. why do we need him to enact an executive order to "Shut Florida Down"? Florida already is shut down. The parks are closed, the beaches are closed, Disney & every other theme park closed, trails for horse back riders closed, hair salons closed, etc..... The ONLY places still open are the ones that are considered LIFE SUSTAINING.. the grocery stores, the hospitals, the feed stores, the pharmacies, waste management, etc..

Yet people are still screaming for him to enact an executive order 🤦.

This is going to spread regardless. All the places still open even during a pandemic are still going to spread it. It lives on cardboard for 24 hrs, steel for 48 hrs and plastic for 72 hrs... And some scientists suggest it lives in the air for up to 3 hrs.

The Diamond Princess cruise ship just tested positive for the RNA, (the genetic material of the virus that causes COVID-19) after 17 days. So it's living on surfaces MUCH longer than they knew.

All a social distancing is doing is PROLONGING THE INEVITABLE.

There is a very good reason for that.. it is helping our medical industry prepare. Covid Units are being set up. We're getting more ventilators in. We're preparing. But it WILL reach everyone eventually. As long as it lives on surfaces, as easily as it spreads, everyone will be exposed at some point.

So why are y'all dogging our Governor. There's nothing else he can do!

He's shut what he can down without completely going Martial on us. Yet, y'all are sharing petitions to "shut Florida down" in my inbox, sharing the same meme again & again.

They shut China down too and it still took them over 5 months before they could start reopening businesses.

5 months, most of your mom & pop places are toast.

Stay home, it's great. I'm really good at it anyway. I hate wearing clothes.

But stop pushing for our government to use more more force. One day you might regret it. 

Then there's this.. 1300+ people on this boat. Been out to sea for a month. Unloading in FL to return to their cars. What can the governor do with them? Leave them out to sea for the next 5 months? It's going to spread, we're going to continue to be exposed. There are asymptomatic people walking around right now! It could be your grocery stocker, or on the cash you handled, or the postal service lady that put your mail in your mailbox..

I'm not making light of the dangers of the Coronavirus BUT.......

WATCH: Collins Goes NUCLEAR On Pelosi, Schumer For Allowing ‘Economy To Crash’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell exploded on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday after she killed a massive $1.8 trillion spending bill to protect the economy and American families from the fallout of the coronavirus.

While speaking from the Senate floor, McConnell said Republicans and Democrats have spent all week negotiating and working around the clock to put together the bipartisan bill — and they actually reached a deal.

Then, Pelosi flew in from California and demanded that Senate Republicans include several new items that she wanted.

After Republicans rejected her demands, Senate Democrats then voted THREE times against proceeding on a bill that they negotiated all week.

During a fiery speech Monday afternoon on the Senate floor, Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins — a moderate who often tries to play nice with Democrats — went scorched earth on Pelosi, Sen. Chuck Schumer, and Democrats.

“Is that what we’ve come to?” the Maine senator said on the Senate floor on Monday as she excoriated Schumer.

“We don’t have another day. We don’t have another hour. We don’t have another minute to delay acting,” she said.
