    “As Lee Iacocca said: “lead, follow, or get out of the way.”

    In the Trump era, Democrats can’t lead, won’t follow, and insist on getting in the way. I just don’t think that is going to end well.

    Here’s another thing I think the Democrats get wrong. It issues from my fundamentally sexist view of the world. When things are going wrong the girl thing to do is to “shelter in place.” The boy thing to do is to “march towards the sound of the guns.” Christopher Chantrill

      In a crisis America needs a leader – even a technocrat who understands getting things done. Instead we have a mentally and morally deficient game show host.

      Wouldn’t one expect a ‘brilliant’ builder and businessman know how to organize and guide a huge project?

      Pat Sajak is a conservative AND a game show host and would have been better than this guy in DC.

        50 center’s solution is a CHINA JOE BIDEN. A corrupt 45 year politician who has dementia, is charged with sexual assault and loves little kids to rub the hair on his legs.

        Nancy Pelosi hides in her house showing off MULTIPLE 25,000 dollar Refrigerators full of ICE CREAM while people starve.

        Chuck Shurmur hides and occassionaly shows up to cast dispersions on Trump.

        The MSM is absolutely BLASTING THE GEORGIA Governor(r) for doing things to open up the economy and YET

        COLORADO GOVERNOR(D) is doing the EXACT SAME THING and NOTHING. ZERO, ZIP. NADA word about him opening up Colorado.

        The MSM is the enemy of Truth. The American people want the truth. The MSM refuses to give them the truth embarking instead on lies, misdirection and fake news PAID FOR BY CHINA.

        Thats what 50 center wants to lead America.

        John your all in on AGW.

        I hear you DRIVE A TRUCK. Deliver stuff. I am sure your doing that on a bicycle made from cut bamboo stalks and not produced with fossil fuels.

        I bet you dont use heat or a/c during the year. I bet all the clothes you wear were made by aboriginees suing flax and weave.

        I bet you enlisted with greenpeace to use a carbon emitting fossil fueld boat to get in the way of ships in the ocean.

        In that you never served, and don’t support the military an the men and women who do serve, this is just another case of you hating others because of your inadequacies.

        Stay in the basement. Maybe your mother will make extra pizza rolls for you.

        Are you going to tell all of us about your war hero status ?

        PS – true war heroes seldom talk about what they did to become heroes.

        We get it. You are now hating on the men and women that protect your rights by putting their lives on the line.

        That’s the depth of your hatred.

      Uh-huh. Our boy president has avoided action, got out of the way (except out of the way of a microphone), avoided any and all difficult decisions, avoided all responsibility, only marching toward the sound of the fryer heating up or the refrigerator opening.

      While the boy prez has been making a hash of things, Wanda Vázquez Garced (R-PR), Lou Leon Guerrero (D-Guam), Muriel Bowser (D-DC), Laura Kelly (D-KS), Kristi Noem (R-SD), Janet Mills (D-ME), Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM), Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI), Kim Reynolds (R-IA), Kay Ivey (R-AK), Kate Brown (D-OR), Gina Raimondo (D-RI), Sanna Marin (Finland), Sophie Wilmès (Belgium), Mette Frederiksen (Denmark), Sahle-Work Zewde (Ethiopia), Sahle-Work Zewde (Iceland), Jacinda Ardern (NZ), Halimah Yacob (Singapore), Ana Brnabić (Serbia), Kersti Kaljulaid (Estonia), Tsai Ing-wen (Taiwan), Bidhya Devi Bhandari (Nepal), Erna Solberg (Norway), Angela Merkel (Germany) have been making tough decisions AND taking responsibility for their actions and the welfare of their people.

      Your view is that white, male, Christian, heterosexuals are best and should be in charge!

        “Your view is that white, male, Christian, heterosexuals are best and should be in charge!

        My view is that President Trump is doing the best he can do with the “experts”, “professionals” and information he has at the time. You don’t give a rats ass about anything but your partisan bullshit. Trump too has been making the tough decisions and people like you challenge EVERY FUKIN” ONE OF THEM> If he says right, you say left, if he says up you say down. You are so full of filthy, rotten hate for the man you can’t even see the plan. we go to war with the army we have and he’s been doing the best he can. If you can’t see that then you’re an ignorant asshole.

        I do not see the benefit of constantly demeaning Trump, the Administration, and the American effort. First off NOBODY”S PERFECT. You judge somebody because you don’t like them, not because they’re wrong.

        Oh, and those white, male Christian heterosexuals Founded this nation and built it from a colony to the wealthiest most powerful and freest nation in the history of man. All you and your “diversity” have done is bitch and complain while turning us into a nation that cowers about a virus and can’t win a war because you’re too busy counting imaginary “genders”. Unity builds countries not diversity.

        You know since this is a country built by those damn white, male, Christian heterosexuals you are fukin’ free to leave any time you want. Try that in a lot of other countries. But if you’re gonna stay then be part of the solution instead of bitching and being the problem.

        Someday, Elwood P. Dowd will stand before the Pearly Gates, and someone he can’t bullshit will ask why he abandoned the babies, how he figured bearing false witness was okay, why he spewed so much hate on his brothers & sisters in Christ. I wouldn’t wanna be in his shoes.

        Oh, and once again you side with every other country by your own. Traitor.

        Trump 2020 let’s mobilize before these commie traitors do.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    John W. McDaniel, 60, died on Wednesday at a hospital in Columbus, Ohio.

    On Facebook, McDaniel called the virus ‘a political ploy’ and said DeWine’s stay-at-home orders were ‘b*****t’ and told critics: ‘Prove me wrong!’

    He tested positive for the virus weeks later and died on April 15

    Nature and his own ignorance proved him wrong.

    • liljeffyatemypuppy says:

      It is unclear if he had underlying health conditions which might have led to his death.

      Guess the middle-school mean girl likes to leave out relevant facts.
      Not surprising though.

    • formwiz says:

      Just because he tested positive doesn’t mean he died of Pooh Flu.

      70% of the people CDC claims to have died from it didn’t.

      Fake News says he died from “complications related to Bat Soup Complaint”. Sounds like another of CDC’s count it as one anyway stats.

      But let’s talk about asshole for a second.

      He’s no better than the creeps during the Vietnam War who called the parents of men KIA and said, “Your son got what he deserved. He was a paid killer”.

      Like the vampires in Fake News, excrement can only try to take advantage of someone’s death. Most likely, not from Oriental Lung Rash, but we never let anyone’s grief go to waste.

      You have to lie about everything because you have no life except hating everybody else.

      Just a piece of (barely) human sludge that makes me figure you’ve really done all those despicable things david and liljeffy say you’ve done. There really isn’t anything too low for you, is there, so I guess we can take it as fact you’re about as low a human being as can be imagined?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        He died of the Trump Plague, after calling it bullshit. Isn’t that ironic? How many people did he infect because of his denialism?

        It’s like the VA preacher who died from the Trump Plague after holding full services. He died from his own stupidity. Darwinish, right? He also infected his wife.

        Does Dr. Trumpenstein still prescribe hydroxychloroquine? He’s been quiet about his cure the last few days. The trend in the latest study is that it killed more than it cured. Ouch! When quacks run uncontrolled, anecdotal studies they often misinterpret results. Let’s say they treat 100 Covid-19 and only 28 die! That’s a 72% cure rate, right? If they run a control group, matched for age, severity of disease, and complications who receive the current standard of care, and find only 11 die, what are they to think?? That’s an 89% cure rate! Has Dr. Trumpenstein been killing patients by pimping an untested drug?

        You, Kye, Lil and Klem are lower. Jim Hoft and those that frequent the Gateway Pudendum are lower. Every white nationalist is lower. Every skinhead, proud boy, neoNazi, anti-Semite is lower. Trump and most of his supporters.

      • Professor Hale says:

        As I said, The real measure of this will be month to month total deaths by all causes. The covid deaths right now are likely confounded by normal levels of death from the flu and other related old-age deaths. As the saying goes, if you live long enough, something is going to kill you.

        • Kye says:

          All I know, Professor, with my limited expeience with the Chinese Flu is that the one and only person I know who actually caught the thing in a nursing home was an 80 something Korean guy who died of heart failure but was logged as dying from Red Flu. He had it, but he didn’t die from it. But as usual when dealing with leftists and the NARRATIVE they desire Truth is the first casualty. It doesn’t matter what the old guy died of, it’s on the record a Red China Flu and that’s where it’s gonna stay until the money comes through for the teachers union, the NPR, The Kennedy canter or whatever else the left can fund on the bodies of the dead.

          Trump 2020 Stop the lying left.

          • Professor Hale says:

            My father just died a few weeks ago. 84 years old. In a nursing home. Pneumonia, lung cancer, and Alzheimers. No one bothered to test him for Covid.

  7. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    The right-wing head of the CDC, today warned about next fall/winter when the seasonal flu AND Covid-19 both return.

    • Kye says:

      On April 16 Bookworm at Watcherofweasels.org wrote an excellent diagnosis of people like Elwood. Here’s snip and at the end a link.

      “The left has never stopped that screaming. Their hatred for Trump (aka Trump Derangement Syndrome) transcends any policy differences. While I hated Obama’s policies and therefore disliked the man, leftists despise the man with every fiber of their being and therefore are incapable of even seeing his policies. Everything is wiped out under blind rage.

      On Facebook, where I follow some leftists, the posts are illuminating. Had I posted politically on Facebook, I might have said, “I think it’s a big mistake to embrace the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and I really hate that Obama is doing that.” I might even have added, “Typical Obama.” But I always would have led with the policy.

      On the left, however, the posts are always along these lines: “Drumpf is a &#@ $#@^ [email protected]%@!!!” The people I know — otherwise perfectly nice, kind people — are either hurling unprintable obscenities at him (or his children, their spouses, and his wife) or they’re wishing horrible deaths upon him and his family.

      With Trump Derangement Syndrome infecting them as acutely as COVID-19 could, policy no longer matters. Each post just sees them verbalizing that green-clad person’s endless howl. Their posts are the written equivalent of the two-minutes of hate from 1984, something the power brokers keep alive for the masses in order to prevent rational thought.

      Looking at all this emoting, it’s not surprising to learn that leftists have higher incidences of mental illness. What I’m seeing is that they are people who too often think from the gut, the physical place where feelings reside, not the mind. Living life that way is going to be painful, and you’re not going to have a lot of resources to fall back upon when things don’t go your way.


      Trump 2020 Keep these crazy bastards away from power.

    • Kye says:

      Why is Elwood so giddy about people dying? Because he thinks it advances his Nazi politics. When the left is involved no amount of death and despair is too much.

      After compiling data for the top 30 countries with the most cases of the coronavirus, here are the top ten countries by confirmed cases per capita (per million) based on the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University’s data as of 11:00 am ET on April 18, 2020.
      1. Spain (4,100.67)
      2. Belgium (3,208.30)
      3. Switzerland (3,166.40)
      4. Italy (2,851.95)
      5. Ireland (2,831.23)
      6. France (2,284.94)
      7. United States (2,135.43)
      8. Portugal (1,930.52)
      9. Netherlands (1,853.88)
      10. United Kingdom (1,698.42)
      China, Iran, N Korea, and other COMMUNIST countries refuse to reveal their numbers (not that they could be believed anyway).

      That’s not to say that we wish the numbers weren’t lower in the US and around the world, but it does give an indication of how population size can skew relevant numbers.
      (In addition, Russia, China, and Iran are not reporting numbers at all, so the per capita rate in those countries may be higher.)
      Margolis then removes what he calls “Downstate New York” from the US numbers and makes the region its own country.
      Downstate New York technically includes New York City, Long Island, and the Hudson Valley, but I am only including Kings, Queens, New York, Suffolk, Bronx, Nassau, Westchester and Richmond Counties. These counties have a population of 12,205,796, according to World Population Review’s numbers for 2020 — bigger than many countries.
      After separating Downstate New York from the US and making the region its own “country” for the sake of comparison, the numbers for rate of infection per capita (million) look like this:
      1. Downstate New York (16,230.65)
      2. Spain (4,100.67)
      3. Belgium (3,208.30)
      4. Switzerland (3,166.40)
      5. Italy (2,851.95)
      6. Ireland (2,831.23)
      7. France (2,284.94)
      8. Portugal (1,930.52)
      9. Netherlands (1,853.88)
      10. United Kingdom (1,698.42)
      Separating downstate New York from the rest of the United States shows us just how bad the situation there is. In fact, the rest of the country doesn’t even rank in the top ten anymore (it comes in at #13).
      Clearly Downstate New York is skewing or weighting the numbers in a direction that does not reflect the rest of the country.
      Margolis then looks at deaths:
      But, as I’ve mentioned before, confirmed cases are not the best way to compare countries because of the discrepancies in testing between them. So, let’s compare these countries by the fatality rate per capita (per million).
      1. Belgium (470.51)
      2. Spain (428.68)
      3. Italy (376.19)
      4. France (286.53)
      5. United Kingdom (228.28)
      6. Netherlands (210.86)
      7. Switzerland (155.29)
      8. United States (112.04)
      9. Ireland (107.34)
      10. Portugal (67.37)
      Once again, even with downstate New York included, the coronavirus has impacted the United States much less than other hard-hit countries. But now, here’s what happens when we treat downstate New York as a separate country from the United States in terms of deaths per capita (per million).
      1. Downstate New York (848.45)
      2. Belgium (470.51)
      3. Spain (428.68)
      4. Italy (376.19)
      5. France (286.53)
      6. United Kingdom (228.28)
      7. Netherlands (210.86)
      8. Switzerland (155.29)
      9. Sweden (149.61)
      10. Ireland (107.34)
      Once again, downstate New York leads the pack and the United States (without downstate New York) doesn’t even come in the top ten (it comes in at #11).

      Basically, the Democommie hub of East Coast leftist nonsense under the control of ALL DEMOCRATS de Stasio and Fredo Cuomo called for people to ride the subays and gather for Chinese New Year and allowed people from all over the world in to their state and city. Thanks Democommies, thanks a lot.

      Anywho, it’s just an attempt to keep the panic going and to destroy the country.

      Won’t work again.

  8. Kye says:

    At this point the question must be asked, “why is Downstate New York’s numbers so radically different than the rest of the US?” Or don’t you care Elwood?
    The comments from leaders there could supply the answers:

    Feb. 2: “There’s a virus that has infected 15 million Americans across the country and killed more than 8,200 people this season alone,” CNN tweets. “It’s not a new pandemic — it’s influenza.”

    Meanwhile, New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot tweets: “As we gear up to celebrate the #LunarNewYear in NYC, I want to assure New Yorkers that there is no reason for anyone to change their holiday plans, avoid the subway, or certain parts of the city because of #coronavirus.”

    Feb. 7: Barbot strikes again, assuring residents, “We’re telling New Yorkers, go about your lives, take the subway, go out, enjoy life.” City lawmakers have called for Barbot to be fired because of the comments.

    Feb. 9: Mark Levine, the chair of New York City Council health committee and a Democrat, tweets: “In powerful show of defiance of #coronavirus scare, huge crowds gathering in NYC’s Chinatown for ceremony ahead of annual #LunarNewYear parade. Chants of ‘be strong Wuhan!’ If you are staying away, you are missing out!”

    Feb. 13: “There are ZERO confirmed cases of coronavirus in New York City, and hundreds of Chinese restaurants that need your business!” the New York City mayor’s office tweets. “There is nothing to fear. Stop by any Chinatown for lunch or dinner!”
    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio adds: “It was my honor to spend time with our Asian-American owned small businesses in Flushing today. This vibrant community is standing strong but they need YOUR support. Our Chinatowns are open for business — make some dinner plans, do some shopping and stand with our neighbors!”

    Mar. 2: “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,” de Blasio, the mayor of New York City, tweets. “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.”

    Mar. 4: Barbot, the top New York City health official, declares, “There’s no indication that being in a car, being in the subways with someone who’s potentially sick is a risk factor.”

    While other states were starting to shut down, New York City was still being encouraged by leaders that there was nothing to worry about.

    It is difficult to not see how the government of New York City did itself not contribute to the rate of infections and ultimately the deaths of people from COVID-19.
    While the Federal government and states were all saying “whoa….we have a problem,” New York City put their citizens at risk by saying “there is nothing to see here…move along….go to a restaurant and see a show!”

    The left is cold, cunning and cruel!!!!

    Eventually New York City “closed,” and while things got worse because of the lack of initial action by New York City, things there have begun to settle down and that’s a good thing for everyone in the City and the country. Unless you’re a leftists partisan hoping the deaths of thousands will bring you power over your fellow Americans, then it’s bad news.

    Trump 2020 Keep the killer leftists out of power.

    • Professor Hale says:

      I doubt the mutterings of politicians on either side had anything at all to do with the spread of COVID. NYC is the epicenter because of its high density of international travelers (immigrants from mostly Asia) and the natural consequence of high density living and the elderly.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        All correct except sequencing of SARS-CoV-2 in NYC suggests a European origin.


      • Kye says:

        So all those incidents I noted had nothing to do with the spread of the Red Plague? Just coincidence all the Democommies in NYC at the time were preachin’ “go out side, ride the subway, all is well”? Okay then, we’re of different opinions.

        • Professor Hale says:

          I simply don’t believe that people listen to politicians and follow their suggestions unless it becomes an enforced action. Everyone who wanted to go to a festival or restaurant did, and everyone who didn’t want to stayed home. No one changed their plans to accommodate a mayor or governor. What mattered was cancelling things and closing stores. Then people couldn’t go there even if they wanted to. And by “mattered” I simply mean it resulted in changed behavior.

          At this point, it is unprovable either way. I speculate there was already going to be strong spreading of the virus in NYC and it was already loose before NYC said anything about it. The fact is, quarantines only work if you have advanced warning and ruthless enforcement. The modern world has neither of those conditions. Even in China, the Chinese government gave a 24 hour warning before quarantine went into effect so that politically connected people and their families could escape the hot zone, and thus spread it throughout the world. We have lots of evidence of people inside the hot zone simply bribing their way out. It’s a very traditional Chinese way of getting things done. Even with perfect enforcement and warning, there are always workers at the boundary of the zone (guards,etc) who are potential carriers of the germs from inside the zone to outside.
