Like me, Allie Beth Stuckey has spent too much time observing reporters at work in the daily White House coronavirus task force press briefings. Unlike me, Ms. Stuckey has made something of her observations. She calls the video below “Every. SINGLE. Coronavirus Briefing is Like This.” I can testify to that. The young lady deserves a Pulitzer Prize for Journalism. In her own way, Ms. Stuckey amplifies the observations of Victor Davis Hanson in “Corona meltdowns.”

Made me smile, but it's amazing that some of the questions were verbatim of what these knuckleheads are asking daily.

LOL. And it's like we on the Right find this as virtual parody - the Leftist 'journalists' will see it as a How-To instructional.

Yes, the media is self beclowning and is remarkably good at it. Trump should hand out red noses, crazy hair wigs, and big funny feet. I'm sure they go out of the room feeling good for getting their digs in but fail to recognize that less and less people care what they say. If I listen, I listen to Trump and his people. When the media starts asking questions, I turn it off.

How will the plague affect this season’s campaigns? Let’s count the ways. Governing itself is an indoor affair and a behind-the-scenes matter, but running for office is a true contact sport, involving flesh pressed and hands shaken, babies adored at close range, people massing in rallies (the bigger, the better), running mates embracing each other in moments of triumph, and young people taking time off from their classes to knock upon strange people’s doors. These things fade away in the face of the crisis. People stand if they can at a safe 6-foot distance, keep their faces covered, and wipe off the knobs

Though President Donald Trump and former vice president Joe Biden said they had agreed to keep the details of their Monday phone call private, Biden appears to have reneged on the agreement. The Democratic nominee has now divulged several details about the exchange in media interviews and a meeting with donors. Biden said during his first interview after the call that he and Trump agreed they "wouldn't go into detail" on what was said during the call between the political rivals. Biden in the days since has laid out the specifics of the five suggestions he made to Trump on how the administration could improve its coronavirus response
Bernie Sanders, Sellout 9 replies

Yesterday, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders officially dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Despite early successes in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, Sanders failed to put up much of a fight against Joe Biden after the latter convincingly won South Carolina. And so, for the second campaign in a row, he has come up short against a weak but well-known presumptive front-runner. In the not-too-distant past, this would have depressed me. When Sanders announced his 2016 presidential campaign, I had never heard of him, but he didn’t take too long to figure out. On economic questions, he was among the left-most political figures

Someone has suggested that Joe Biden’s frequent video chats from his basement are meant to be “proof of life” evidence, because if he actually went silent for a few days speculation would build that he has COVID-19. But these increasingly hapless appearances contribute to the impression that he has Dementia2020.

It hadn’t occurred to me that the briefings might explain why the small bounce in his job approval after the virus crisis hit had begun to fade. I thought it might be because there’d been more reporting lately about how the feds bungled their initial response to the outbreak. Or it might be a simple reaction to the rising death toll and gruesome unemployment numbers. The briefings seemed like the least likely explanation because Trump sounds at them like he always does.

In promoting national vote-by-mail legislation, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her caucus of radical House Democrats are following the advice of Rahm Emanuel, who famously said while Obama chief of staff, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that [is] it’s an opportunity to do things that you think you could not do before.” Pelosi recently announced that she will try to insert the controversial election measure into the next stimulus package, which is supposed to focus on helping our country overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.  In the midst of this crisis, the American people want our leaders in Washington to combat the coronavirus

An internal investigation into a leaked letter that led to the commander of the Navy's USS Theodore Roosevelt being fired has concluded and Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday said Thursday that “all options are on the table," and he is not ruling out reinstating Capt. Brett Crozier to his position. Crozier was ousted last week after sounding the alarm about the need to offload sailors from the ship due to a COVID-19 outbreak. "I am taking no options off the table as I review that investigation," Gilday said to reporters during a phone conference Thursday. "I think that's my responsibility
The Left’s Ugly Reaction
to Hydroxychloroquine

A widely shared, four-person-bylined, “wow”-provoking New York Times story today informs us that Donald Trump is personally benefiting from his “aggressive advocacy” of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine because he owns stock in one of the companies that manufacture the drug. The story might be one of the most ridiculous articles published by mainstream media in the Trump era — though, admittedly, the field is highly competitive. But while knee-jerk anti-Trumpism is expected, the angry obsession over the president’s championing of hydroxychloroquine is uniquely ugly. For one thing, and I realize this might be difficult for some people to comprehend, it’s plausible, even likely, that Trump advocates for chloroquine

According to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll released on Wednesday, a majority of registered voters believe former President Obama would do a better job at handling the coronavirus pandemic than President Trump. According to the poll “52 percent of the survey’s 1,990 respondents said they believed that Obama would be a better leader than Trump during the ongoing pandemic, compared to the 38 percent who said they thought Trump is the better leader.” Considering the lengths that the mainstream media has gone to criticize Trump’s response to the coronavirus, even blaming him for the death of a man who drank poisonous fish tank cleaner because it had chloroquine phosphate in it,

Why Trump was totally right to
fire the intel inspector-general

Posted by Pluperfect 4/9/2020 4:37:49 AM Post Reply
Firing the US intelligence community’s inspector general is a big deal. I should know. I was a former longtime Central Intelligence Agency official who blew the whistle on the Clinton White House and agency bosses. Even so, I believe President Trump’s firing last week of IC Inspector General Michael Atkinson was appropriate — indeed, overdue. Liberals and their media allies are predictably framing the firing as ­retaliation for Atkinson’s decision to inform Congress about a complaint by a so-called whistleblower that set off the Democratic effort to impeach the president. That’s false. Let’s review the facts.

Even as the last passengers disembarked the Coral Princess, the latest cruise ship in the U.S. with reported cases of COVID-19, the U.S. Coast Guard said over 100 cruise ships and 90,000 crew members are still stuck at sea in or near U.S. ports and waters. Last week, two cruise ship crew members had to be medically evacuated from Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas and one from the Celebrity Infinity, who later passed away “due to undetermined medical reasons.” The Coast Guard confirmed that all three crew members had "COVID-19 like symptoms."

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Friday said it’s possible that Americans could eventually carry around certificates of immunity to the coronavirus once proper testing is widespread enough. “That’s possible,” Dr. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said on CNN’s “New Day.” “It’s one of those things that we talk about when we want to make sure that we know who the vulnerable people are and not,” he said. “This is something that’s being discussed. I think it might actually have some merit.” Sen. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican, has pitched the idea of an immunity registry to document people

Even local TV stations, the most resilient sector during the media's troubled years, are hurting from the disappearance of two reliable advertisers, local car dealers and political candidates.

That is one of the major changes in Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's "stay home" order, issued Thursday, which also extends the expiration of the order to May 1. Until now, travel between two Michigan residences has been permitted.

What is the origin of the new coronavirus? It is an alarming topic. Still, a notable portion of the public—particularly conservatives—believes that the virus emerged from a laboratory rather than nature, according to a new poll released on Wednesday. Three-in-10 (29%) say it most likely was created in a lab—23% believe the current strain of the coronavirus was developed intentionally in a laboratory; another 6% say it was most likely made accidentally in a lab, according to a new Pew Research Center poll. A plurality of the respondents—43%—said the virus came about naturally while a quarter say they aren’t sure

"Anecdotal" has suddenly transmogrified into a magic word with power to shut down any further inquiry, discussion, or debate of hydroxychloroquine's (HYQ) application as a Wuhan virus antidote. This one simple word has reached ultimate status in the world of TDS-sufferers everywhere as the definitive slayer of arguments for the drug's use to impede the deadly path of the virus. This sad fact is representative of a pernicious chasm in our society. The deeply felt antipathy and revulsion of anything Trump by TDS-sufferers are so intense, raw, and vituperative that the one, and so far, only readily available treatment modality demonstrating high efficacy in stopping COVID-19 —

San Francisco now plans to lease 7,000 hotel rooms to provide shelter for homeless people as well as first responders and health care workers battling the spread of the coronovirus, city officials said Wednesday. 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.

Today, another briefing, and CNN’s Jim Acosta had a similar antagonistic exchange with President Trump. Once again Dr. Fauci hangs back to give Acosta a similar signal.
