WHITE HOUSE: Bishop Harry Jackson joined President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence in the Oval Office to offer a prayer for America on Good Friday. Dearest got up at 6 am to participate in a telephone conference call for the same purpose.
APRIL 10 TASK FORCE BRIEFING: “We’re in very good shape for the surge that’s coming in certain areas.” – President Trump [2:13:34] – Antibody tests are in the approval pipeline.
Trump is confident the economy will bounce back and cited a huge stock market bump this week as evidence.
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: CNN has been cutting off the White House briefings as soon as Trump stops talking so they can sneer at and lie about what he just said. Meanwhile, the important information that the Vice President and other members of the Task Force present is ignored by this brazenly and disgustingly anti-Trump network.
The office of Vice President Mike Pence says now that members of Task Force will not be allowed to participate in interviews with CNN reporters or appear on CNN shows until the network returns to broadcasting the daily press briefings in their entirety.
NEW YORK GOV. CUOMO: “If we continue what we’re doing, then we believe the curve will continue to flatten.” [:56] – Democrat morons call Cuomo a masterful leader while sneering at Trump, who is supposedly a retarded fool. Funny thing how they’re both saying the same things.
INGRAHAM and BARR: [8:2] – Apparently, billionaire progressive Bill Gates thinks it would be a swell idea if all Americans were forced to carry (inject?) digital certificates to prove immunity to COVID-19 before being allowed to participate in public life.
Shades of Revelation’s Second Beast who “causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark.” – Rev. 13:16-17
TESTING COMING TO DRUG STORES: [4:55] – The Trump administration has moved to allow licensed pharmacists to order and perform COVID-19 tests.
DEMOCRATS SUCK: The New York Post editorial board writes, “On Thursday, Senate Democrats nixed a simple but urgent request to boost cash in the emergency small business loan program Congress set up this month from $350 billion to $600 billion.”
“What a deal for Democrats: They get to hold the economy for ransom, and the media blithely cover for them.”
Above: On Thursday, CNN published an accurate, breaking news headline, then 44 minutes later, changed it to cover for the sleazy Democrats.
Other news outlets did the same thing.
NBC’s first headline was, “Senate Democrats block GOP bid for $250 billion in small-business funds amid impasse over coronavirus aid.”
A short while later, NBC’s headline was changed to, “Senate hits impasse over $250 billion in coronavirus small-business aid.”
Politico ditto. Its initial headline claimed Thursday afternoon, “Senate Dems to block new coronavirus relief in bid for more money.”
Politico’s revised headline, however, now suggests there is blame to go around. It now reads, “Senate brawl derails fast push for new coronavirus relief.”
And of course the New York Times couldn’t be left out. Original, “Democrats block G.O.P. proposal for aid to businesses, request more fund.”
Revised, “As Economy Hemorrhages Jobs, Aid Stalls in Senate.”
And while the Democrats are slobbering all over themselves in their eagerness to spend even more money on stuff that has nothing to do with the virus, the national debt topped $24 trillion.
Remember when then-Senator Obama told us that George W. Bush’s $10 Trillion debt was totally unacceptable … right before he and his cronies boosted the national deficit from the hundreds of billions to over a trillion per year.
- Some of the above came from Dan Bongino’s podcast.
DEMOCRAT CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE: Their latest “Get Trump” hoax is that EVERYBODY knew that COVID-19 was going to be a huge problem EXCEPT for the incompetent Orange Man in the White House.
Jan 17: The first day any news network mentioned the coronavirus.
Jan 20: The first known case in the United States of COVID-19 was confirmed in the state of Washington.
Jan 29: Trump created the White House Coronavirus Task Force to coordinate and oversee the Administration’s efforts to monitor, prevent, contain, and mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Jan 31: The Trump administration declared a public health emergency, and placed travel restrictions on entry for travelers from China.
Jan 17 to Feb 5: CNN’s coverage of the virus averaged 12 minutes total per day (about 1.6% of total coverage); it was mostly small news briefs squeezed into the last few minutes of any show that bothered to cover it.
The broadcast news was better, but not by all that much. ABC, CBS, and NBC each averaged two and a half minutes per evening newscast (about 14%) and it led 19 out of 57 of those newscasts.
In late February: President Trump and his coronavirus team, including Vice President Mike Pence, Dr. Anthony Fauci, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams and Dr. Deborah Birx, began providing daily press briefings. They proved to be so popular that the Slime Stream Media started demanding they not be aired.
“They don’t really want press briefings. They want a daily opportunity to push their agenda and beat up President Donald Trump,” Media Research Center vice president Dan Gainor told Fox News. “When it turned out Trump was benefiting from the daily briefings and the media looked bad as a result, then they wanted to cancel them.”
March 16: The first date on the USA Coronavirus Map – Fifty-six days after the first COVID-19 case was diagnosed in the U.S., there were 3,816 cases and and 64 deaths.
The Democrats and their lapdogs in the media were still focused primarily on minimizing the disease and slandering Trump and his aggressive response to it.
E.g., On March 16, the NY Post reported, “Broadway is dark, the city’s 1.1 million public school students are home from school, and the Big Apple’s 27,000 restaurants will close their doors to diners Tuesday — but none of those warnings could keep Mayor Bill de Blasio from a trip to his favorite public gym in Brooklyn on Monday morning.”
JACKBOOTS: About the graphic, the police department in Brighton, Colorado, has apologized and says it is conducting an internal investigation. The incident was so stupid, it makes me wonder if there was bad blood between the cops and the dad. Apparently, he is a former police officer.
Police officers in Greenville, Mississippi, fined Christians $500 this week for attending a drive-in church service in a parking lot. Everyone was in their cars, with the windows rolled up, listening to the service on their radios. The pastor was also fined.
Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly issued an executive order to ban religious gatherings of more than 10 people and punish violators with fines up to $2,500 and 12 months in jail. The Kansas Legislative Coordinating Council voted 5-2 to overturn the order. Democrat Kelly argued that strong restrictions on churches are necessary to protect lives during the coronavirus crisis, yet she has allowed abortion facilities to perform elective abortions.
In better news, my area is encouraging fresh air and sunshine.
TRUMP-RUSSIA INVESTIGATION: Last year, AG Barr appointed Connecticut’s top federal prosecutor, John Durham, to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation and to review possible misconduct by federal law enforcement and intelligence officials. The review upgraded into a criminal investigation in the fall, giving the prosecutor the power to impanel a grand jury and hand down indictments. The attorney general told Durham to focus just as much on the time period after the 2016 election as before it.
On Thursday, Fox News host Laura Ingraham aired a segment in which Barr said the “evidence shows that we’re not dealing with just mistakes or sloppiness. There is something far more troubling here, and we’re going to get to the bottom of it. And if people broke the law, and we can establish that with the evidence, they will be prosecuted. … Building these cases — especially the kinds of sprawling case we have between us that went on for two or three years here — it takes some time — it takes some time to build the case. So, he’s diligently pursuing it.”
Barr also said, “I think the president has every right to be frustrated, because I think what happened to him was one of the greatest travesties in American history. Without any basis, they started this investigation of his campaign, and even more concerning, actually is what happened after the campaign, a whole pattern of events while he was president to sabotage his presidency — or at least have the effect of sabotaging the presidency.”
