  1. Yes 64jaguar just the facts! The Trump administration badly undermined the effort to contain the coronavirus outbreak by getting rid of most staff tasked with identifying global health problems in China while repeatedly attempting to slash funding for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to a new report by an environmental watchdog. Over the past three years, the Trump administration has drastically reduced a team working in China to identify global health threats like Covid-19, which originated in the Chinese city of Wuhan late last year. The initiative’s 11 CDC staffers have been cut to three people, while 39 workers classed as “local employees” have been reduced to 11 people. The administration has repeatedly and systematically corroded critical parts of the CDC,” Sellers said. “This was just begging for an epidemic to hit us. It was a perfect storm of lack of preparation.” Sellers added: “It’s kind of incredible they are now trying to rewrite history to say we have plenty of resources when they’ve systematically targeted them. They should be held responsible by the American people as it is outrageous.” Donald Trump initially reacted to the onward march of coronavirus by calling it a “hoax” before then, also inaccurately, claiming that the US had completely contained the disease. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/24/trump-cuts-undermine-coronavirus-containment-cdc-watchdog-report As CL says Just the Facts!
  2. And here is the other side of the story! So Obama sought millions in cuts Trump cut BILLIONS. The cuts started in 2018, as the White House focused on eliminating funding to Obama-era disease security programs. In March of that year, Rear Adm. Timothy Ziemer, whose job it was to lead the U.S. response in the event of a pandemic, abruptly left the administration and his global health security team was disbanded. That same year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was forced to slash its efforts to prevent global disease outbreak by 80% as its funding for the program began to run out. The agency, at the time, opted to focus on 10 priority countries and scale back in others, including China. Overall in 2018, Trump called for $15 billion in reduced health spending that had previously been approved, as he looked at increasing budget deficits, cutting the global disease-fighting budgets of the CDC, National Security Council (NSC), Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and Health and Human Services (HHS) in the process. The effects of those cuts are being felt today. While the CDC announced plans to test people with flu-like symptoms for COVID-19, those have been delayed and only three of the country’s 100 public-health labs have been able to test for coronavirus. The administration’s request for additional funding came roughly two weeks after officials said HHS was almost out of funding for its response to the virus. https://fortune.com/2020/02/26/coronavirus-covid-19-cdc-budget-cuts-us-trump/
  3. Here is the big difference! COVID-19, the illness caused by coronavirus, proves deadly in around 3.5 percent of confirmed cases. While this is not the same as its mortality rate, given many people may be infected but not realise it, it is significantly higher than seasonal flu, which typically kills 0.1 percent of patients. https://www.sciencealert.com/the-new-coronavirus-isn-t-like-the-flu-but-they-have-one-big-thing-in-common so if 54 million people get the coronavirus like the regular Flu 1.9 million people will die
  4. Republicans fleece the American tax payers too! And what about your GOP boy trying to delay the stimulus package and make every congressman come back to vote. If that was a Democrat you have gone ballistic! Just as many wack o doos on both sides. And yes AOC is a wack o doo!
  5. Yep it’s all the Democrats fault. Not one thing in there came from the Republicans. Even though It was a senate bill started by Mitch McConnell. Yep not one thing in there was put in by the Republicans............come on! But this really did happen by the GOP! Thomas Massie might be the least popular man in Washington. The Kentucky congressman attempted unsuccessfully on Friday to require House members to take a recorded vote in order to pass a $2 trillion coronavirus relief package. And although Massie’s colleagues were able to foil his parliamentary procedure in a matter of seconds, his efforts nonetheless forced scores of lawmakers to travel to Washington amid a pandemic to stop him. House Republican leadership had been concerned that Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) would move to demand a recorded tally as opposed to a voice vote on the historic measure, throwing a last-minute hurdle in the legislation’s path to the president’s desk. Two hours after Trump’s initial post, Massie confirmed that he would do just that, tweeting: “I swore an oath to uphold the constitution, and I take that oath seriously. In a few moments I will request a vote on the CARES Act which means members of Congress will vote on it by pushing ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or ‘present.’” Massie ultimately failed on Friday afternoon when the House approved the package. But his threat compelled dozens, if not hundreds, of lawmakers to return to Capitol Hill from their home districts, navigating across interstates and through airports at a time when public health officials have urged Americans to avoid nonessential travel and gathering in large groups. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/27/trump-congressman-thomas-massie-coronavirus-vote-151523 If a Democrat did this you guys would be going ape 🦧
  6. Talk about fake news!!! Misinformation Directory Neon Nettle Neonnettle.com is a British website that posts inflammatory political stories, many with misinformation, about the U.S. and U.K. — it has a “conspiracy” section in its “news” category. It says on its “About Us” page: “At Neon Nettle, we believe the mainstream has become less valid as it continues its ongoing practices of censorship and engineered narratives.” The site is registered through Tucows, a company that hides the identity and location of the owner of the website. But incorporation papers filed in the U.K. show that Neon Nettle is based on the outskirts of London. https://www.factcheck.org/2017/07/websites-post-fake-satirical-stories/
  7. Just the facts! John Kelly defends Vindman: ‘He did exactly what we teach them to do’ https://www.politico.com/news/2020/02/13/john-kelly-defends-vindman-114801
  8. Back at ya just substituted Main stream media for conservative main stream media and we got something.
  9. You are so uninformed it’s scary! The data bears out that concern. In Italy, the hardest hit country in Europe, almost a quarter of the nearly 28,000 coronavirus patients are between the ages of 19 and 50, according to data website Statista. https://fortune.com/2020/03/18/coronavirus-young-people-getting-sick-covid-19-us-italy-france/ Also you’re lack of empathy for people suffering (Australia) is quite telling and scary also.
  10. Yep that’s why in Australia where it is summer over (100 F) in many places, they have 450 cases of the virus. As of Wednesday there were more than 450 confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Australia, according to local health authorities. That's up from just over 100, a little more than one week previous. https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/18/australia/coronavirus-covid-19-update-australia-intl-hnk/index.html You keep believing that BS my friend.
