One can pinpoint the exact moment when life in the United States changed, possibly forever. It was the night of March 11th, 2020 and the NBA suspended its season. At about the same time, arguably the world’s most famous actor made a shocking announcement. Within days, states would begin to issue orders restricting the number of people who could gather together. Shortly after that, they began closing schools. But it wasn’t until March 16th that governments began to shut down their states entirely. Why did they take such a draconian step? Because of the release of a bombshell report in Great Britain.

So, does Rory wish to criticize Nancy, Nancy, Nancy? I have heard her multiple times saying, "Testing, testing, testing."

Even if I give the government the benefit of the doubt on the intitial panic, it' become apparent that it is no longer about health, but politics and a lust for power.

Media hysteria led to confusion and panicked the reaction. It even confused #1, whose remark here was probably intended for the story below this one. (Rory McIlroy criticizing Trump's virus response.)

There are several lessons we have learned from the CoViD-19 experience such as: the unreliability of predictive models; the danger of depending on foreign supply chains; over-reaction can be a deadly as under-reaction; and the need for better contingency planning. There is one lesson we have not absorbed: to get timely, affordable care, Americans need the private sector, the free market, not the government-controlled health care. When the CoViD crisis began, it was private companies, not government agencies, that quickly produced diagnostic tests, personal protective equipment, ventilators, and developed ideas for both curative medicines

There will be no official "Chinese collusion" in 2020. There will be plenty of collusion among the Democratic Party, the American press, and the Chinese Communist Party to prevent President Trump from winning re-election come November. It just won't be reported or turned into a news story of any kind. Journalists will not spend the next six months breathlessly screaming about the national security implications of America's most lethal geopolitical foe "waging war" on American democracy

Tom Tiffany will serve as the next representative of Wisconsin's 7th Congressional District. Tiffany, a Republican, was elected Tuesday, beating out Democrat Tricia Zunker for the seat during a special election. With 99% of the precincts reporting, Tiffany received 57% of the vote to Zunker's 43%. The results in Marathon County closely mirrored the district, with Tiffany winning almost 59% of the vote there to Zunker's 41% in the county. Tiffany is facing a quick turnaround after the election. He will be expected in Washington, D.C., starting next week to begin serving in Congress. Tiffany also faces another campaign season, too.

Liz Cheney (Wyo.), the No. 3 Republican in the House, defended White House coronavirus task force member Anthony Fauci on Tuesday and praised him for the job that he's done during the pandemic. "Dr. Fauci is one of the finest public servants we have ever had. He is not a partisan," the House Republican Conference chair tweeted. "His only interest is saving lives.

Under fire for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, President Donald Trump, his campaign and his party are moving to lay blame for the 80,000 U.S. dead at the feet of the Communist Party of China and, by extension, its longtime General Secretary, President Xi Jinping. “There is a significant amount of evidence” that the virus originated in a Wuhan lab, said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week. Trump himself seemed to subscribe to the charge:

Now that the Justice Department has abandoned its prosecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, it’s important to remember what made the case of Lieutenant-General Michael Flynn so central to the Intelligence Community’s mutiny against Trump. As a reminder, here is what I wrote in Asia Times last November: As chief of the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2012, Flynn had warned that American support for Sunni jihadists in Syria had the unintended effect of supporting the new caliphate movement, that is, ISIS. Among all the heads and former heads of the 17 agencies that make up the US intelligence community, Flynn was the only one who had objected

A new coronavirus oversight panel assembled by House Democrats is being dismissed as the same old attempt to get President Trump, following the failure of impeachment or the Trump-Russia investigation to end his presidency. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently appointed a select committee on the coronavirus, to be chaired by Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina, a key ally of presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The membership was stacked with early advocates of impeaching Trump, including California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters.

Did the animated Nostradamus predict the present yet again? In its 30 years on air, “The Simpsons” has proved to be a modern prophet, seemingly anticipating everything from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the “Game of Thrones” finale to Donald Trump’s presidency and Greece defaulting on an IMF loan repayment. Now, fans believe the show deserves credit for calling the coronavirus decades ahead of time as well as the recent sightings of Asia’s “murder hornets” in the US — all in one episode.

The reports during the past two days that President Trump has engaged the military in a project called Operation Warp Speed to fast track a Covid-19 vaccine – which is being compared to the World War Two Manhattan Project to develop a nuclear weapon – feels like the final blow. (snip) President Trump’s promise of a vaccine yesterday implies words like mandate, monitoring, and immunity passports. Contact tracing and tens of thousands of new government workers to spy on and enforce compliance with that unproven strategy which came out of nowhere last month were bad enough. Now we have the next and possibly the final chapter

Flexing unearned influence has exposed the thirst for control of their citizens. In Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf caught a whiff of his constituents working up the desire to step out and start living their lives once again. The idea of citizens exerting their freedoms and basking in the normalcy of liberty was too much for him to stand. On Monday he sent out a tweet storm, delivering a series of firm commands of how he intends to clamp down on those who might dare get the idea of doing things.

There's really nothing worse than neighbors ratting out neighbors. But that's what Democrats are urging citizens to do across the country. And more often than not innocent Americans are getting caught in the crosshairs. Sheila Perez Smith tells the Todd Starnes Show that she was stunned when the police showed up at her home near Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Mrs. Smith's 7-year-old son had just completed a zoom class from the den of their home when she received an urgent email from her son's first grade teacher. It just so happened that the little boy had recently been gifted a toy gun

‘relief’ bill is purely a political stunt

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is happy to play rank politics with the federal coronavirus response. Exhibit A is the absurd $3 trillion “relief” bill she’s set for floor vote on Friday. It’s the first emergency bill written by one party with zero input from the other. Some Dems say it’s just an “opening bid,” but why waste time crafting 1,800 pages of legislation full of poison pills for the opposition? It seems Pelosi thinks virtue-signaling to her base is worth the trouble. The bill is packed with junk that has nothing to do with the pandemic or the economic chaos the response to it has created.

California governor: Shrink prisons

Gov. Gavin Newsom is proposing to significantly shrink the footprint of California's prison system, partly because of massive budget cuts prompted by the pandemic but also because of philosophy. The revised budget he sent to state lawmakers this week envisions closing two state prisons in the coming years; cutting nearly one in five of the 43 inmate firefighter camps; and eventually closing all three state-run juvenile prisons. He's also seeking unspecified increases to sentencing credits that allow inmates to leave prison more quickly. And he proposes to shorten parole to a maximum of two years, down from five years for felonies, and let ex-felons earn their way off supervision

I have to admit, of all of President Trump’s press secretaries, Kayleigh McEnany is my favorite. She’s regularly demonstrated her ability to handle the media’s gotcha questions and throw them right back in their faces. On Friday, she absolutely crushed it again when she was asked about the Strategic National Stockpile. Associated Press reporter Jill Colvin asked, “How come on January 2020, the stockpile was as low as it was on supplies like face masks and N95s?” “It’s a really important question,” replied McEnany. “Perhaps I should redirect your question to President Obama who left the stockpile empty.” McEnany went on to cite a USA Today fact-check

Acting Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell appears to be tiring of the partisan attacks from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as evidenced by his curt dismissal of the California Democrat’s latest political assault.Since Grenell was appointed to his temporary post in February by President Donald Trump — a lawful appointment that isn’t in question — Schiff has repeatedly complained about moves the DNI has made without the partisan Dem’s ‘approval.’For example, Schiff blasted Grenell last month after the acting DNI made several personnel changes, doing so “without consulting and seeking authorization from Congress in a manner that undermines critical intelligence functions.”
