Gov. CUOMO: “Cuomo has blood on his hands. He really does.” – On March 25, New York’s Health Department issued a mandate that state nursing homes could not refuse COVID-19-positive patients who were “medically stable.”
The result was to bring the infection into nursing homes that had been virus free where it spread and killed people.
One of the very first things we learned about COVID-19 is that it is highly lethal to the elderly. As of last Wednesday, COVID-19 had killed at least 3,540 residents of New York’s nursing homes and adult care facilities.
When challenged about the deadly consequences of the mandate, Gov. Cuomo suggested that the nursing homes didn’t want to accept virus patients because they were afraid of losing state money by violating the mandate.
Or … maybe … just MAYBE … the reason the state authorities were insisting that nursing homes accept infected patients is because those facilities cost the state a lot of money to maintain.
An executive at a facility that was forced to take two, still-contagious, coronavirus patients into his virus-free, ultra-high-risk facility told the New York Post that the patients arrived from the hospital accompanied by a box containing five body bags.
The nursing facility has continued to receive shipments of five body bags per week.
And they have been needed. To date, thirty patients in the facility have succumbed to the disease.
CHINA: Top leaders in Britain, France, and Australia demand the truth from the Chinese Communist Party about the origin of the CCP virus. [2:53].
CHINA: China lied. People died. And they’re continuing to lie. [5:43] – There’s no question that Beijing’s early cover-up of its coronavirus crisis led to the deaths of thousands of people around the world. And it’s still lying, blatantly.
When China’s initial outbreak became severe in January, Harbin designated 24 hospitals for treating patients with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, commonly known as novel coronavirus.
In early April, authorities in the northeastern province of Heilongjiang reported another wave of infections in several cities, the most severe in Harbin, the provincial capital.
Meanwhile, they’re reporting absurdly low deaths in major cities whose citizens are frequent travelers. E.g., eight total in Beijing (population: 21.5 million) and seven in Shanghai (pop. 24 million).
The plague spread from Wuhan to Europe and America, killing hundreds in urban areas — yet somehow barely touched Chinese cities packed with far more people?
ECONOMY: “I built the greatest economy once and I’ll do it again.” – President Trump [1:24] – I’m confident he can lead us out of this mess. Once upon a time, he was billions of dollars in debt; now he is worth billions!
CAPITALISM: The free market has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system.
IMMIGRATION: With over 26 million Americans filing for unemployment benefits in the past five weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic, President Trump’s immigration restriction is not only well within his authority, but is also a “no-brainer” that should be supported by every American.
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: Legal Insurrection has a piece reviewing the lying variation on the disinfectant lie.
That is, that calls to poison hot lines suddenly jumped because of people who heard Trump running off to snort some bleach into their lungs.
The stories are all long on inflammatory headlines and short on facts.
For example, they say that after the briefing, calls to poison centers for exposures to cleaners and disinfectants were significantly higher than during the same time period in 2019.
According to the CDC, the daily number of calls to poison centers for exposures to both cleaners and disinfectants increased sharply at the beginning of March 2020.
Although the data do not provide information showing a definite link between exposures and COVID-19 cleaning efforts, there appears to be a clear temporal association with increased use of these products.
Did the Slime Media report this important context? They did not. Cuz, you know, Bad. Man. Orange.
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: On Friday, Politico posted an article suggesting President Donald Trump currently “owes” millions of dollars to the Bank of China, adding that “the loan is due soon.”
The whole story was wrong, but rather than retract and admit they bungled it, they “updated” it with a version that totally changed its meaning.
IGNORING TARA READE: The Left Stream Media is still ignoring Tara Reade [6:09] – New evidence has emerged in the case of a former Joe Biden staffer who has accused him of sexually assaulting her back in the ’90s.
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: In a blatant case of “in-kind donation” to the Democratic Party, CNN has deleted the 1993 episode of Larry King that features the phone call by Tara Reade’s mom.
BIDEN: [:57] – San Fran Nan made her “values, authenticity and integrity” endorsement of Groper Joe after the video of Tara Reade’s mother calling the Larry King Live show in 1993 came out.
The Larry King recording apparently did inspire a few, well known Democrats to call for Biden to drop out. But so far as I can tell, they’re all Bernie supporters.
Meh. So much for “believe the woman” and #MeToo.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD: [6:49] – “Believe the woman” and #MeToo have no meaning at the Democrats’ favorite abortion giant. Planned Parenthood has a long history of aiding and abetting sex traffickers and ignoring the plight of minors who are being victimized by those closest to them.
I can’t bring myself to try and excerpt this horrific report. It is upsetting me too much.
VOTE BY MAIL: This is one of the many things Democrats are trying to use the virus to slime through. We should absolutely not allow it!
The federal Election Assistance Commission says that state and local authorities have no idea what happened to more than 28.3 million ballots that voters mailed in between 2012 and 2018.
This figure does not include ballots that were spoiled, undeliverable, or came back for any reason.
PROGRESSIVE CHARITY: African countries are severely hampered in their fight against COVID-19. Many places do not have access to soap or clean water.
Health care professionals lack personal protective equipment (PPE) and hospitals have a critical shortage of ventilators. Forty-one countries have only 2,000 ventilators between them, and ten countries have no ventilators at all.
The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) has created a $2 million aid plan to assist African nations during the pandemic. They’re sending ALL of the money to DKT International, an organization funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The money will be used to send abortion kits to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Tanzania, and Uganda.
NORTH KOREA: There have been several news reports that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has died or that he is near death after “grave surgery.”
But a top adviser in South Korea says Kim Jong Un is “alive and well.”
According to the ever-reliable Babylon Bee, The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea reported today that Kim Jong Un is not dead and in fact is “the most alive person in the universe.”
“American fake news says Supreme Leader is dead, but we found that he was more alive than anyone ever in history,” said a spokesperson. “If he lies in still vegetative state, it is only because he is stuffed so full of life like a big meal and needs time to properly digest all that life. So much life. Such great life.”
