Washington - President Donald Trump pushed back Wednesday against criticism that his administration isn’t doing enough to meet the coronavirus threat, as lawmakers called for giving disease fighters much more money than the $2.5 billion the White House has requested. A day after he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading widely across the U.S., Trump prepared to hold a White House press conference with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He tweeted that the CDC, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and others in the administration are “doing a great job with respect to Coronavirus!” and accused some news outlets of “panicking markets.”

Comments:

President Trump will speak at 6 PM, EST tonight. The headline shows that Schumer is claiming that he needs 4 times what President Trump has stated. More socialist sliding.

HOw would Chuckie know more money is needed? Has Chuckie ever displayed a modicum of intelligence? Or is Chuckie just making up a big number to make Trump look bad?

Ah, Democrats not wanting to let a good crisis go to waste, huh? Trump should also mention how the need to control the borders has more to do than just to prevent illegal immigration.

Rush has good figures on comparison of flu deaths with coronavirus infection, so much media hype to blame Trump for yet another false flag and take the heat off their horrible collection of presidential wannabees Maybe our presstitutes could come up with stats on how many people are surviving this latest virus. It is difficult to make comparisons with China, their population numbers and conditions and foods are so different from the US. If only our borders were closed we'd be pretty safe from most of the current afflictions.

Sorry Chucky, $2.5 billion should do the job. The only thing that democrats do is spend. Remember how well they spent the economic stimulus package. They were replacing windows in a building that was closed down and states received money for shovel ready projects that did NOT exist.

A blind person could’ve seen the impending manipulation by the left on this issue a mile away. I sincerely hope President Trump and his administration saw it, as well, and have a strategy to combat the demedia attempts to create panic, publicly, politically and financially. People, by and large, are stupid and fearful. Those traits for the left are like blood in the water for sharks, and they are salivating at the prospect of a nice big meal.

Something to consider. https://tinyurl.com/sxu2tc9 I take 3,000 units of vitamin D every morning, and haven't ever had the flu, get a cold about every other year or so. My wife just finished two weeks of a really nasty cold, I never got it. Just one old guy's experience, but there are studies supporting it. Oh, if you worry about "overdosing on vitamin D", with full body exposure in the summer for an hour or two (the max you want without burning) will make between 10,000 and 25,000 units of vitamin D. It is virtually impossible to get any significant vitamin D from the sun in winter if you live at the middle of the USA or north, the sun's rays are too weak, even if you did stay out in a bathing suit in 20F weather. Grin. I have often wondered if this is the underlying reason that "the flu season" happens to coincide with the time when we don't get any natural vitamin D from the sun in the mid-to-northern USA, and much less in even southern USA. For what it's worth. And at my dose of 3,000 units per day, a $4.50 bottle of Vitamin D from Walmart lasts for 40 days, so ~11 cents a day to maybe decrease your chances of getting the flu?

Oh, and my wife takes only vitamin C, a multivitamin and calcium supplements. The multivitamins have 500 Units of Vitamin D, IMO, too little to be meaningful, given the amounts that your body makes naturally as some sort of a guide as to how much you should have.

One of the top experts on viruses has stated that this one is just a cold weather thing like the flu and that it will disappear as the weather warms up. After I heard his statement, I saw a map of all the countries where the virus is showing up. Guess what? It’s not showing up much at all in countries or continents south of the equator where it is summer this time of year.

Japan is announcing the closure of schools nationwide to help control the spread of the new virus. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe says he asked all elementary, middle and high schools to remain closed until spring holidays begin in late March. The measure comes amid growing concern about the rise in the number of untraceable cases in northern Japan and elsewhere. Japan now has more than 890 cases, including 705 from a quarantined cruise ship. Officials in Japan’s northernmost main island of Hokkaido said earlier Thursday that they were closing all 1,600 elementary and middle schools in the island prefecture,

At least 100,000 ducks will be deployed 4,827 kilometres (nearly 3,000 miles) from the eastern province of Zhejiang to Pakistan, which shares a border with the Xinjiang province.

President Trump’s reelection campaign sued The New York Times for libel on Wednesday, saying the news organization falsely reported as fact a conspiracy with Russia. The lawsuit, filed in the New York State Supreme Court, seeks to hold the news organization accountable for intentionally publishing false statements against Mr. Trump’s campaign. Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to the campaign, said the Times falsely stated the campaign “had an ‘overarching deal’ with ‘Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy’ to ‘help the campaign against Hillary Clinton’ in exchange for ‘a new pro-Russian foreign policy, starting with relief from … economic sanctions.’”

Separated from Russia by Ukraine, the state-owned Cricova wine cellar is President Vladimir Putin’s personal wine playground. The wine cellars of Cricova is the second-largest wine cellar in Moldova, only under the Guinness World Record holder, nearby Mileștii Mici. With 75 miles of winding underground tunnels and mazes 250 feet below sea level, the 15th-century limestone former mining caves at Cricova were converted into the luxurious wine retreat in the 1950s.
Is there such a thing as a ‘sugar high’? 14 replies

The theory of the “sugar high” has been debunked, yet the myth persists. The notion that sugar might make children behave badly first appeared in the medical literature in 1922. But the idea did not capture the public’s imagination until Dr. Ben Feingold’s best-selling book, “Why Your Child Is Hyperactive,” was published in 1975. In his book, Feingold describes the case of a boy who might well be “patient zero” for the putative connection between sugar and hyperactivity: “[The mother’s] fair-haired, wiry son loved soft drinks, candy and cake — not exactly abnormal for any healthy child. He also seemed to go completely wild after birthday parties

A number of pundits have recently argued that younger voters, especially those under 30, are less inclined to be bothered when they hear the word “socialism,” since they have no firsthand memory of the Cold War. To some extent, this must be true. Those who weren’t alive during socialism’s cruelest catastrophes — or even its many banal failures — will be less put off by the idea. Then again, if a presidential candidate were praising the excellent public transportation system of the Third Reich or going on about the some alleged benefit to American slavery, they would rightly be chased from the public square forever

Weinstein was convicted Monday on two felony charges: criminal sex act in the first-degree for assaulting Miriam Haley by forcible oral sex in 2006, and rape in the third-degree for raping Jessica Mann in a New York City hotel room in 2013.

Prison bosses are reportedly worried about how to handle Harvey Weinstein while he is in jail, fearing he may commit suicide—just like Jeffrey Epstein. Weinstein was convicted of rape and sexual assault on Monday and officials at New York prisons are said to be concerned another high-profile inmate could take his own life. Billionaire Epstein hanged himself last August in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. Now it is feared Weinstein may have to be kept in a private section of Rikers Island's North Infirmary Command, which is for high-risk inmates, for his own safety.

This past weekend, I and many of my colleagues received the shocking news that famed Obama administration DHS whistleblower Phil Haney had died. My first indication was a text from a friend late Friday night: "Sorry so late but I am hearing Phil Haney has been killed." I had received something earlier in the evening, but the person texting had thought it was a joke. It was no joke. Phil Haney, a long-term colleague and person I had come to know personally, had been shot dead. Rumors from friends contained many inaccuracies, like "he had been missing for days," "found in a remote area," etc.

Chicago Public Schools will no longer observe Columbus Day. The Board of Education voted to change the name to Indigenous Peoples’ Day as other cities and school districts have done. The board’s vote on the issue was 5-2. The school holiday will be on Oct. 12 this year. CPS is working to develop new curriculum to more accurately tell the history of Native American cultures. The holiday has been controversial because the day has been used to commemorate Italian explorer Christopher Columbus who claimed to have discovered America in 1492. The area was already populated by indigenous people and some have argued that Columbus’ actions led to their genocide.
