America has long led the world in innovation, and the coronavirus won’t change that. Indeed, US inventors and entrepreneurs are rising to the occasion, jumping in to fill urgent needs. With ramped-up testing the best way to discover who has the virus and so learn what the fatality rate really is, the news from Abbott Laboratories couldn’t be better. The Food and Drug Administration gave emergency-use approval to Abbott’s new test, the fastest available at the point of care: It can deliver a positive result in five minutes and a negative result in under 15. This test runs on a platform about the size of a small toaster

Excellent comment OP! This is one country that will step up in times of crisis. It is in our DNA. You see it everyday when Americans all over the country from the movers and shakers to the man on the street do what they do best. It is what built this country and continues to be driving force despite the despicable dems who see a crisis only as an opportunity to use for their benefit. God bless every American who is selflessly doing whatever they can to beat back this virus and help their fellow man. I am so proud of each and everyone of them.

There’s nothing like a crisis to bring clarity. The response of some mayors and governors to the coronavirus pandemic in recent days has made it clear they think they have unlimited and arbitrary power over their fellow citizens, that they can order them to do or not do just about anything under the guise of protecting public health. We’ve now witnessed local and state governments issue decrees about what people can and cannot buy in stores, arrest parents playing with their children in public parks, yank people off public buses at random, remove basketball rims along with private property, ticket churchgoers, and in one case try—and fail—

A pandemic rages, and death is everywhere. It looms overhead like a low, dark cloud. It drowns out our church bells and voices and mocks us. Everything bears its witness: empty halls and dark storefronts and absent grandparents and sterile shields where smiles used to be. Streets are too silent and thoughts are too loud. One, two, 800, 100,000 gone — the toll rises. Friends and paychecks disappear, leaving only vices. Morale sinks low as screen time skyrockets. Another hour lost, another drink consumed. Goodbye to gyms, hello to binging. One girl looks longingly at the cap and tassel she’ll never wear.

After President Trump noted in March that an anti-malarial drug had shown some success in treating COVID-19, according to reports from clinicians, his opponents slammed him for playing doctor and flaunting the “audacity of false hope,” in the words of CNN’s Stephen Collinson. How quickly they forget the lessons of the 1980s AIDS crisis. Rachel Maddow demanded the media stop broadcasting Trump’s briefings, because “it’s misinformation.” The New Yorker called Trump’s interest in the efficacy of the drug, known as chloroquine, “quackery,” “eccentric,” “a ­reminder, if one was needed, of his scorn for rigorous science.” USA Today, Vox, The Daily Beast, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post and NBC News all piled on.

In spite of the nasty negative press, the Democrats and the RINOs, President Trump’s achievements are truly remarkable. Years from now, history will note a major event that occurred in 2016, an event that significantly altered the course of the country and the world. At the time, the U.S. was in the last year of a 10-year economic slump. It was, in fact, the only 10-year period in history where the economy did not achieve 3 percent annual growth in any year. From 2007 to 2016 economic growth averaged about 2 percent. That subpar growth rate led to fewer opportunities for Americans. That led to poor employment prospects and stagnant wages.

If Joe Biden weren’t such a corrupt, dissolute, politically vicious man, one might feel sorry for him as he simultaneously battles irrelevance and dementia while locked away in his home in Delaware. As it is, watching Biden public decay is the equivalent of watching someone take Dorian Gray’s picture out of the attic and place it in front of a television camera. It doesn’t help Biden when his campaign churns out bland, meaningless bits of political pabulum that are meant to read as profound insights into public policy during a challenging time in America. The latest example is an opinion piece in the New York Times

A man in Watertown, Massachusetts, was reunited with his wife recently in a very unique way, following a long separation due to the coronavirus pandemic. When Nick Avtges met his wife Marion over 60 years ago, he knew they were meant to be, according to WFLA. “It was love at first sight. And the rest is history,” the 88-year-old said of their romance. Since that time, the couple has spent every day together and raised four children. "My parents have been the rock of our family,” said daughter Suzanne, adding, “The way they’ve dealt with a lot of different situations.” Even after Marion went to live in a nursing home not long ago,

Sunday on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) said he would investigate what warnings from the intelligence community and health organizations that President Donald Trump ignored in the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic. On “real-time oversight,” Schiff said, “We are right now going through our intelligence holdings. What did the intelligence community make us aware of at the end of last year or earlier this year? Other committees are doing like analyses.” He continued, “It is very important, I think, in reviewing the intelligence component to this to realize the intelligence piece is just one piece of the warnings coming to the administration.

Christians around the world celebrated Easter Sunday isolated in their homes by the coronavirus while pastors preached the faith’s joyous news of Christ’s resurrection to empty pews. One Florida church drew a large turnout for a drive-in service in a parking lot. In Britain, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the first major world leader to test positive for the virus, paid an emotional tribute to the country’s National Health Service following his release from the hospital, saying its doctors and nurses had saved his life “no question.” He especially thanked two nurses who stood by his bedside for 48 hours “when things could have gone either way.”

The Trump campaign’s secret weapon against Joe Biden will be Bernie Bros. “Bernie Sanders supporters have been laying the groundwork for many of the lines of attack that the Trump campaign will be using against Joe Biden in the general,” a senior Trump campaign insider told The Post. “From his serial dishonesty, to his obvious issues, to his attempts to cut Social Security. We are going to have a field day.” During the 2020 primaries, nobody’s knives for Biden were sharper than Sanders’ rabid supporters online and in far-left media. Echoing critiques they made against Hillary Clinton in 2016,
Treasury Department was right to keep Trump

President Trump can keep his elusive tax returns under wraps — for now — with the collapse of House Democrats’ latest attempt to make them public. The Treasury Department’s top watchdog ruled that Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin acted correctly when he withheld six years’ worth of Trump’s IRS filings from prying eyes on the House Ways and Means Committee. “The Department processed the request properly,” acting Inspector General Richard Delmar wrote to committee chairman Richard Neal (D-Mass.) in a letter made public Friday. Delmar, who investigated the matter at Neal’s request, found that Mnuchin followed the advice of Justice Department attorneys to keep Trump’s financial documents private.

A Kentucky church defied coronavirus-lockdown orders to hold a packed Easter Sunday service — despite a heavy police presence and even nails blocking the parking lots, according to a report. Maryville Baptist Church appeared to have a near-full house for its Sunday service despite orders to avoid in-person services — and the heightened risk of catching COVID-19, the Louisville Courier Journal said. Worshippers arrived even after police warned that they would record their car plates to force them into 14-day quarantines. Many — including the defiant pastor, Rev. Jack Roberts — arrived with their plates covered, with officers instead recording their VIN numbers, the paper said.

Joe Biden on Sunday outlined how he would “safely reopen” the US economy amid the coronavirus outbreak — calling for ramped up testing and continued social distancing. Arguing President Trump hasn’t “supplied an answer,” the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee offered the broad strokes of his “plan” in an op-ed for The New York Times, writing “the American people have already paid too high a price in illness, death and economic loss. This time, the White House has to get it right.” “The plan has to start with responding effectively to the immediate medical crisis and ultimately lead to the widespread availability and administration of a vaccine.

President Trump on Sunday night retweeted a post that called for the ousting of Dr. Anthony Fauci after the infectious disease specialist appeared on CNN. The tweet from DeAnna Lorraine, a former GOP candidate for Congress, included the hashtag #FireFauci and referred to Fauci’s concession that more lives could have been saved if the US had acted sooner to stop the spread of coronavirus. “Sorry Fake News, it’s all on tape,” Trump wrote, insisting his travel ban was the action needed to stem the virus. “I banned China long before people spoke up.”

The $2.2 trillion package that Congress approved to offer financial help during the coronavirus pandemic has one major exclusion: millions of immigrants who do not have legal status in the U.S. but work here and pay taxes. That includes Carmen Contreras Lopez, a 48-year-old housekeeper who, though she earns low wages, files a tax return each year. Since the virus took hold, she has lost most of her clients and is getting by with help from her oldest son. But she won’t see a penny of the money promised to most Americans in response to the pandemic. “It’s hard because to the government, we don’t exist,” said Contreras

The accusatory tweet posted on Easter Sunday said that Trump is “unfit” to lead the country. Barbra Streisand, who endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016, lashed out at President Trump in her vitriolic tweet by calling him incompetent and a liar.

One word keeps recurring in online discussions of Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s latest orders to fight the state’s raging COVID-19 outbreak: “Insanity.” Last week, the first-term Democrat issued an order extending the state’s stay-at-home policy, which had been set to expire April 15, until May 1. Michigan has the third-highest number of coronavirus cases of any state in America, and certainly strong measures are required to get the pandemic under control. But the devil is in the details, and Whitmer’s new order instantly provoked a firestorm of outrage. Among the complaints was that Whitmer had prohibited sale of seeds and other garden supplies,

One of the liberal myths that you can see being spread on social media, aided by some in the liberal media, is that Fox News downplayed the Wuhan coronavirus and because of that that Republicans/evangelicals/those “other people are going to spread infection everywhere, just you wait and see. The problem with this goofy conspiracy theory is that every element of it is wrong. Fox didn’t downplay it more than any other media outlet. Indeed it wasn’t Fox calling things like Trump cutting travel from China racist and suggesting there was nothing to fear, it was Democrats and outlets like the New York Times.
