Original Article

Posted By: WhamDBambam, 4/9/2020 6:48:13 AM

As far back as late November, U.S. intelligence officials were warning that a contagion was sweeping through China’s Wuhan region, changing the patterns of life and business and posing a threat to the population, according to four sources briefed on the secret reporting. Concerns about what is now known to be the novel coronavirus pandemic were detailed in a November intelligence report by the military's National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI), according to two officials familiar with the document’s contents. (Snip) And it paints a picture of an American government that could have ramped up mitigation and containment efforts far earlier to prepare for a crisis poised to come home.

Here's what the article buried: "As a matter of practice the National Center for Medical Intelligence does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters. However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence/release of a National Center for Medical Intelligence Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists," the statement said." Lying bastids.

Is this kind of reporting designed to bring new awareness or to provide a new FAKE "shiny object"? Seems like I remember the cruise missle attacks on a certain office building and aspirin factory in the dead of night to provide a "shiny object" keep a lid on the Monica Lewsinsky news to protect a GUILTY BJ Clinton-- Now we have very inaccurate projections of statistics in an attempt to take our mind OFF of demonrat socialists attempted take over of the Constitution and the crookedness of the false Mueller reports and FAKE impeachment evidence.

These guys can can really dig up the minutiae against a bete noire when they want to, can’t they? Can anybody remember what Trump was preoccupied with last November? When this pandemic is over, the first government group to be “reorganized” will be the CDC, from top to bottom. They are a total waste of breath. So are our vaunted “intelligence” agencies, who are full of Democrat holdovers from the Clinton and Obama regimes.

The bat guano hit the fan in October, soon that will be common knowledge. Suddenly it's Trump who understated the threat. Fauchi their hero dejour for tapping the brakes on Hydroxycloriquine was saying no problem and Trump closed air travel from China in January because he's a racist but now it's Trump who should have magically known better?

This article uses a lot of words and out of context procedures to bury the basic timeline: first warning in November, went to policy makers Nov-Dec including our vaunted NSC and didn't make the President's Daily Brief (PDB) until January. And...? It's true that these assessments go through a lot of vetting and continued analysis until it gets to the POTUS. This is for a reason; i.e., so some 20-something green horn or a foreign born LtCol don't drive the policy with biased analysis. The process is painful; I know. So the conclusion is Trump didn't pay attention - whaa. I have a question for DIA and NCMI: What is the status of the 300 soldiers who participated in the World Military Games in Wuhan in October? Analyze that.

There’s more than enough misleading information here for Schiff to hold House Intelligence Committee secret meetings in Capitol basement. He’ll call the same Democrat zealots disguised as law professors who will assure Schiff that the fake memo justifies impeachment, just as Trump’s normal phone call with Ukraine justified impeachment in 2019. Testimony from the Medical Intelligence Unit debunking the memo will be kept secret just as Schiff still keeps secret the testimony of his 18th witness last September. CNN and MSDNC will endlessly interview Schiff, Nadler and Pelosi on the proposed Articles of Impeachment. With the election just 7 months away, the Dems can’t just rely on voter fraud to win.

These people are beyond treasonous and need to be sued for slander.

The left is trying hard to find something that doesn't give Trump the credit for restricting air travel from China BEFORE anyone thought he should, and likely saved hundreds of thousands of lives, particularly in California where the numbers are MUCH lower than anyone anticipated.

Another "research" report like we all did in 10th grade. Start with a theory and then search for what supports your theory and ignore whatever doesn't . We'd have gotten a C- or worse for doing that, but as the NY Times said in February, "Trumpvirus. We know who's to blame." Prepare for more "research" that support their conclusion.

Ok, it's fake news, and there is no such assessment.

The media are such dopes. Multiple agencies now have denied that such a report exists. ABC's sources lied. Were the sources Hillary Evil and a few of her minions? If this WAS a retaliation for the putdown of Karl, they aren't very good at it, are they. Whether they like it or not, and they really, really hate it, these briefings are Trump's show and he knows how to do it better than anyone on the planet. Plus, it's real. It doesn't get any more reality than this. And, the star is also the POTUS. Anyone with a brain should know that this is an unbeatable combination. The actuality that the media keeps trying to "get Trump" confirms they are mental midgets. They deserve their comeuppance.

I am sick of the Fake News reports. Of course they lied, again. They know nothing will change, no one will be prosecuted or even fired. They are screaming FIRE in a public theater and no one cares. When they are labeled 'fake news' they are proud of that. They have a broadcasting license issued by the FCC. PULL that license. PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS or at least threaten them to, until they stop dangerous propaganda. This purposeful reporting IS getting people killed. Indirectly for now, but it has convinced some fanatics to shoot innocent citizens in Vegas and DC. THAT behavior is directly linked to the biased propaganda of the network news. STOP them from inciting the rat mob.

She says she told him that his constant bashing of the media was tiresome. “Why are you doing it?” she says she asked him. According to Stahl, (he) responded with this: “I do it to discredit you all and demean you all so when you write negative stories about me no one will believe you.”

September 11, 2001 changed a lot of things for a lot of people. I’m no exception. Up until that monumental event I was only marginally political; I read the news, but hadn’t yet formed any sort of cohesive ideology. If anything, I was a fairly typical college student in the South, raised to respect tradition. A decade and a half after the attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93, another monumental event would soon rattle my worldview and drastically alter my political trajectory. And then the planes hit the towers, and my obsession with politics began.

An Arkansas woman is suing the son of former Vice President Joe Biden, alleging that he is the father of her baby. Thus far, she’s been unable to serve him with the papers, her attorney said. Lunden Alexis Roberts filed a petition for paternity and child support against Robert Hunter Biden in Independence County on May 28, days after Hunter Biden reportedly married another woman in California. The two-page suit states that Roberts and Hunter Biden “were in a relationship” and that “Baby Doe” was born in August 2018 “as a result of that relationship.” It doesn’t say how or where they met or offer other personal details.

This would more than triple the rooms now under contract. The city already has committed $35 million for the next three months to lease the first batch of units. The overall effort would cost San Francisco roughly $105 million — some but not all of which would be reimbursed by the federal and state governments.
