President Trump said Wednesday that Iran is planning a "sneak attack" on U.S. troops or "assets" in Iraq, warning the country will pay a "heavy price" if this happens. The president made the abrupt announcement in a tweet Wednesday afternoon, coming amid lingering tensions between the two countries over past confrontations as well as the coronavirus pandemic. "Upon information and belief, Iran or its proxies are planning a sneak attack on U.S. troops and/or assets in Iraq. If this happens, Iran will pay a very heavy price, indeed!" Trump tweeted.

Their real sneak attack came from China, but they wouldn't dare.

Seems strange that in the midst of all their other troubles, the Iranians are eager to lose their oil wells and refineries. Authorizing a few daisy cutters only takes a phone call or two, and although some of our troops are sick, the Wuhan virus does not disable daisy cutters.

The mullahs must be desperate to shift attention from the awful job they're doing keeping their population safe from COVID-19. They are on the ropes, no joke. This is a Hail Mary, or Hail Allah, play.

Iran must listen to CNN & MSNBC ...the media is trying to convince anyone who will listen the US is 10000000% absorbed in the virus crisis. Trump is a multitasker , he can do many things at one time.

America Still a Global Leader

A current global myth alleges that America under the Trump administration is not leading the world fight against the coronavirus in its accustomed role as the postwar global leader. Yet the U.S. was the first major nation to issue a travel ban on flights from China, with Donald Trump making that announcement on Jan. 31. That was a bold act. It likely saved thousands endangered by Chinese perfidy and soon became a global model. None of the ban's loud critics are today demanding it be rescinded.

We Americans are truly blessed by having a mainstream media full of brilliant renaissance men, women, and gender non-specific entities who are masters of so many varied and intermittently useful skills and who are eager to share their knowledge with us benighted souls. The pandemic has revealed that every urban Twitter blue check scribbler, MSNBCNN panelist, NYT/WaPo doofus, and barely legal “senior editor” of a website you never heard of, is a Nobel Prize-winning epidemiologist, a master logistician, and a diversity consultant too boot. They may all be lousy journalists, but damn it, they are also lousy at other jobs that they didn’t even pretend to train to do.

The international community is currently experiencing the worst global panic in modern history. Entire economies, including the US economy, are in complete free-fall over the coronavirus pandemic and panic. It is always good to pause and look at the actual data and not the ever-changing “models” the “experts” continue to throw at us. We posted on the current coronavirus numbers in a previous post today. Now this from our friend Steve at Grassfire: The CDC’s “Pneumonia and Influenza Mortality Surveillance” website reports that there have been more than 80,000 P&I (pneumonia and influenza) deaths during the current 2019-2020 flu season.

President Trump has an opportunity both to defeat the novel coronavirus and to gain advantage for the United States in the competition with China for global influence, which predates both the coronavirus crisis and the Trump administration. It flared earlier in this presidency during trade negotiations. It resurfaced with Mr. describing Covid-19 as the “Chinese virus.” Now, China appears to have the upper hand. It has stopped reporting virus-related deaths, with official Chinese government numbers for Wuhan at 2,500, only a small fraction of the more than 40,000 that U.S. government-sponsored Radio Free Asia says is closer to the truth.

Over the past couple of days I’ve lost literal count of how many people have written to me asking about the clinical trials in New York State regarding the use of Hydroxychloroquine. The trials began last Tuesday. In this column’s space and much more liberally on my Twitter feed I have attempted to stay up-to-date on the rapidly developing reports of the effectiveness of Hydroxychloroquine. I’ve also dedicated a considerable percentage of my radio show over the last two weeks highlighting these developments. It’s strange that I should need to.

“There’s no cure.” People are frightened when they hear these words. I know I was. For those of you who don’t know my story, after surviving a medical error in 2015 only to be diagnosed with a rare bone cancer, I found myself without the luxury of time to wait for a potentially life-saving treatment to be approved. Sound familiar? Millions of Americans right now are unfortunately experiencing my same fear—as we don’t have the luxury of waiting months or even years for a coronavirus cure to be approved. Although the coronavirus is certainly different than cancer, it’s still the same invisible enemy of death.

The suspect, 36-year-old Timothy Wilson, was killed by FBI agents while picking up what he believed to be a bomb for use in the attack, the FBI announced in a press release on Wednesday. The suspect was motivated "by racial, religious, and anti-government animus" and had been "the subject of a months-long domestic terrorism investigation," according to the FBI. No other details regarding the suspect's motive were provided.

As we were preparing to gather with family for dinner while sheltering from the coronavirus, an email arrived from a reader. Its subject line was “I-m-a-g-i-n-e.” Attached was a video of Ray Charles singing “America the Beautiful” at the Republican National Convention in 1984 at Dallas. That was the convention that handed up President Reagan for the campaign in which he won a second term with a victory in 49 of the 50 states. What a unifying moment. We plan to share the video over dinner with our children, and why not with our readers, of whom we have been thinking constantly during this travail.

However, with the fear of spreading the contagious coronavirus, the same bags being used multiple times are more likely to help spread the disease than single-use plastic bags.The move is the latest action taken by San Francisco and the California state government

Yes, in the midst of a pandemic that is choking the economic life out of this country, Obama focused on climate change. Obama shared an article from The Los Angeles Times entitled, "Trump rolls back biggest U.S. effort to combat climate change." The article details Trump's move to loosen fuel efficiency standards as the oil and gas industry struggles with extremely low prices amid an oil price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia.

Most of West Antarctica and large areas of East Antarctica were once covered in rainforest, scientists say. Today’s icy wasteland would’ve once played host to huge amounts of plant-life – during an unusually toasty period in history 90 million years ago. Evidence for the rainforest suggests the climate was “exceptionally warm.” The rainforest dates back to the mid-Cretaceous when sea levels were around 550 feet higher.
