Trump Promotes Voter ID, Says 'a Lot of People Cheat With Mail-In Voting'

"I think a lot of people cheat with mail-in voting," Trump said Friday. "I think people should vote with Voter ID. I think Voter ID is very important, and the reason they don't want Voter ID is because they tend to cheat."

Trump said people should show up to the polls in person and cast their votes after presenting the proper identification. "It should be you go to a booth and you proudly display yourself."

Immunologist says he has a possible cure for the coronavirus

"We've engineered neutralizing antibodies that go and block the virus. The coronavirus, if you were to zoom in on it, you would see a series, a ring of spikes, and it uses those spikes to invade human cells. We've identified a series of super potent antibodies that block those spikes and therefore make the virus no longer infectious."

Thought for the Day

Giving people all the facts is not enough. A person – each one individually – has to connect the dots; he has to put the individual facts together; relate each fact to others in his mind; to see how they fit together, and to note what the implications are.

Some people do this more easily than others, but being able to does not imply it will get done – and frequently it does not get done; frequently it is assumed that one is good enough at doing it naturally that no additional effort is needed – and none is taken.

To fit and relate the facts together, a person has to want to do that. He has to decide he wants to run those facts through his mind; he has to devote the time needed for it; to give it a higher priority than the other things he could be doing – things he likes to do or tpically does. He has to make that extra, conscious mental activity a habit – a part of his thinking routine.

He has to decide there is a value to be gained by thinking in added depth, and that spending the time to do that is a good idea. He has to learn over time that to spend more than a momentary span of time in mulling over the facts is productive – that doing so gives him something important enough to devote a sizeable amount of time to extended thought on a regular basis in the future.

Ultimately, he has to like to think in such depth.

Conservative leaders press senators to confirm Trump circuit court pick

FISA Court Orders FBI to Provide "Names" and "Docket Numbers" For 29 Spy Warrant Applications Found to Have Errors

The DOJ’s Office of Inspector General on Tuesday said in a report it still has a “lack of confidence” in the FBI’s FISA procedures. Horowitz’s office found errors in all of the 29 FISA applications it reviewed during an audit as follow-up to an investigation of the bureau’s illegal spying of Carter Page. The OIG released a report on Tuesday revealing the FBI’s FISA abuse is still a widespread ongoing problem.

Despite the overwhelming evidence of FISA abuse, there still has been zero indictments of Deep State officials.

After mocking Trump for promoting hydroxychloroquine, journalists acknowledge it might treat coronavirus

Journalists and top Democrats have beaten a similarly hasty retreat from their previous claims that Trump's ban on travel from China was both xenophobic and ineffective.

For many news outlets, the about-face has been stark. A Jan. 31 article in The New York Times quoted epidemiologist Dr. Michael Osterholm as saying that Trump's decision to restrict travel from China was "more of an emotional or political reaction." Weeks later, though, the paper reported that dozens of "nations across the world have imposed travel restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus," and did not criticize any of them for the move. See that news article here.

Similarly, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, went from threatening doctors who prescribed the drug with "administrative action" to requesting that the federal government ship her state some.  Other state leaders have followed suit, including Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, also a Democrat.

The Washington Post ran a story quoting a Chinese official asking for "empathy" and slamming the White House for acting "in disregard of WHO [World Health Organization] recommendation against travel restrictions." In March, The Post finally acknowledged that critics accused China and WHO of "covering up or downplaying the severity of an infectious disease outbreak."

All of this is obviously nothing but bad politics by Democrats and the Chinese.

Pandemic Puts the Screws to New York’s Mafia. In Italy, the Mobs Are Thriving.

Many of its money-making outlets have been shuttered. Traditional organized-crime rackets like betting and construction are bleeding the New York mafia dry. The American mafia families are also losing out on the extortion racket after restaurants and other entities close their doors under New York City’s "shelter in place" order.

But in Italy, the mobs are stronger than ever. Various criminal groups are involved in the construction of field hospitals and importation of medical supplies like masks and other equipment. But the real money will be made when the lockdown ends, when cash-strapped entrepreneurs will need loans. Those loans will be hard to secure from banks, which will take a huge hit.

Army researchers at Fort Detrick who helped discover Ebola treatment seek coronavirus vaccine

These are the same army scientists who helped develop vaccines for anthrax, the plague and Ebola. Now, they have been working double shifts growing large amounts of the COVID-19 virus at this sprawling lab complex.

"We can test about 300 drugs or compounds in each plate."

They have used sneeze labs -- a technology the U.S. Army invented -- to test how the virus has spread through the air. "It would mimic you and I walking through someone's sneeze. There's a swirl of virus within droplets, so it doesn't exist just in air, but it's in fine droplets of many different sizes. Large droplets would land on your mouth and eyes, maybe on your hands, on surfaces, small droplets. You breathe them into your nostrils. Some of them make it past your projections, get deep into the lungs."

"We're going to find this vaccine and we're gonna win in the end."

FDA Authorizes Use of Malaria Drugs for Coronavirus

The emergency-use authorization is for two oral prescription drugs, hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, which are used primarily to treat malaria, but are now being investigated by federal agencies. 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine sulfate and one million doses of chloroquine phosphate have been donated. The FDA will allow the drugs to be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with COVID-19, as appropriate.

As of early Monday morning, the coronavirus has infected more than 143,000 people in the U.S. and at least 2,513 people have died from the respiratory illness.

Up to 10 percent of recovered coronavirus patients test positive again, China reports

As many as 10% of recovered coronavirus patients in China tested positive again after being discharged from the hospital, according to a report. So far there is no evidence to suggest that they are infectious. The five patients who tested positive again did not have any symptoms and none of their close contacts had been infected.

Surveillance of similar patients showed that 80 to 90% had no trace of the virus in their system one month after being discharged from the hospital.

Additionally, health officials around the world are testing the concept of taking plasma from someone who has been infected, processing it, and injecting the antibodies into a sick person to stimulate their immune system.

The deaths from identified positive cases are “misleading” because of limited data.

This goes way beyond Trump Derangement Syndrome. It’s derangement, but it’s also destruction and evil. An international pandemic may be no time for politics. But evil people are always political, because power is all they care about. They are exploiting this present crisis to overthrow Donald Trump and then secure the power they feel entitled to hold forever.

Bipartisan House resolution condemns Chinese government over handling of coronavirus response

Condemns the Chinese government over its handling of the coronavirus outbreak, painting a stark picture of lies and mismanagement contributing to the pandemic that has infected nearly 390,000 people worldwide and killed more than 16,700.

This resolution comes as tensions between the U.S. and China are running high over the Chinese government's high-powered propaganda campaign seeking to paint itself as the global coronavirus savior while several U.S. officials and politicians, including President Trump, have taken to calling the coronavirus the "Chinese virus" in reference to its origins in Wuhan, a city in China.


China's relationship with WHO chief under scrutiny in wake of coronavirus outbreak

The cozy and symbiotic relationship between WHO chief Tedros and Chinese President Xi Jinping has some crying foul.

The coronavirus has been traced back to Wuhan, China, with the first case surfacing in late November, weeks before the Chinese government claimed it had.

The problem is that China's complacency at the beginning of the outbreak helped create the crisis. The WHO accelerated it.

By January 3rd, Chinese authorities had already ordered #COVID19 virus samples destroyed, silenced Wuhan doctors, and censored public concerns online.

Through it all, Tedros has defended China. "When he should have been focusing on global counter-pandemic efforts, Tedros instead was politicizing the crisis and helping Xi to shirk his responsibility for a series of wrongdoings in addressing the outbreak,"

Tedros is also accused of using the WHO platform to "defend the Chinese government's gross violation of human rights." As China knowingly misled the world, Tedros publicly praised the country for its "transparency."

Why did he do it? Some say keeping China happy has tremendous advantages for not only the WHO but also for Ethiopia, Tedros' home country. For more than a decade, Ethiopia's economy has been largely dependent on China. Beijing has shelled out hundreds of millions of dollars for mega-projects

Lately, China hasn't been happy with its investments in Ethiopia after projects failed to generate the kind of cash developers had hoped. If China pulls out of Ethiopia, the African country's economy could crumble -- something Tedros is desperate to avoid.

"The coronavirus pandemic has shown that Tedros is not fit to lead the WHO. Because of his leadership, the world may have missed a critical window to halt the pandemic or mitigate its virulence."

"The world is now battling rising infections and many countries have imposed restrictions. As leader of the WHO, Tedros should be held accountable for his role in mismanaging efforts to control the spread of the virus."


China takes another swipe at US media as NYT, WSJ and Washington Post pen open letter to Beijing

The Chinese government is too weak to handle criticism, and they stupidly resort to force and violence.

The Chinese government specifically called out an "insulting article with a blatantly racist headline" that was published in the Journal, which China claims "is unacceptable in any country."

It should be noted, freedom of the press is on the checklist of what it means to be a civilized country.

An Open Letter to the Chinese Government

The coronavirus pandemic sweeping across borders, sickening and killing people in nearly every country, and sending the world economy into a downward spiral, is a global challenge unlike any other in our lifetimes. Perhaps more than any major news event in modern history, this moment underscores the urgent importance of both probing, accurate, on-the-ground reporting from the centers of the pandemic and of sharing the information, insights and lessons that reporting reveals as widely as possible.

In this moment of shared crisis, China has decided to expel American journalists from a number of news organizations, including the three we oversee, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post and The New York Times. This move — made in retaliation for recent expulsions by the United States government — is one that we would protest under any circumstances. But it is uniquely damaging and reckless as the world continues the struggle to control this disease, a struggle that will require the free flow of reliable news and information.

We strongly urge the Chinese government to reverse its decision to force the Americans working for our news organizations to leave the country and, more broadly, to ease the growing crackdown on independent news organizations that preceded this action. The media is collateral damage in a diplomatic dispute between the Chinese and U.S. governments, threatening to deprive the world of critical information at a perilous moment.

The earliest reports on the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan and its rapid spread were brought to the outside world by the journalists who work for us in China, as well as their colleagues for other leading news organizations. We have sent our reporters to live for extended periods in the center of the outbreak to document the toll of the disease and the struggle to treat those afflicted with it. We have prominently featured news and analysis about China’s remarkable progress in reducing the spread of the virus through containment and mitigation. Even now, with some of our journalists facing imminent expulsion, they are reporting on how China is mobilizing state resources to develop vaccines that could offer hope to billions of people there and around the world.

Our news organizations are rivals. We compete with each other on the biggest stories, including this one. But on this matter we speak with a single voice. Both countries — and the rest of the world — benefit from having talented journalists, many of them fluent in Chinese and versed in Chinese culture, cover the world’s second largest economy, the center of global manufacturing, and, unfortunately, a population hard hit by one of the worst pandemics of modern times. Even when this crisis passes we believe both countries will continue to benefit from freer access to news and information about the other.

Amid tensions between superpowers, journalism bolsters strong, confident societies by providing to leaders and citizens important information and awareness to inform their lives and decisions — even, perhaps especially, when it is challenging to governments. We believe it is unambiguously in the interests of the people of both countries, as well as their leaders, to let journalists do their work.

China threatens electronic strikes on Navy

The article was published Tuesday, the same day the Pacific Fleet announced on Twitter that the aircraft carrier strike group led by the USS Theodore Roosevelt, and the USS America, an amphibious assault carrier and leader of an expeditionary strike group, were conducting exercises in the South China Sea.

The large-scale military maneuvers are a direct challenge to China’s claims to control 90% of the South China Sea, despite an international court ruling several years ago rejecting those claims. The Global Times report said the carrier operations marked the third time in the past week that U.S. warships have “trespassed” into the sea.

Key coronavirus updates this morning:

There are currently at least 33,276 cases and 417 deaths in the United States, as reported by Johns Hopkins and other media sources. There are more than 335,957 cases worldwide, with more than 254,550 of those being outside China.

President Trump announced that he has activated the National Guard in New York, California, and Washington. The President has approved disaster declarations for New York and Washington, and California’s declaration should be approved soon. The President also instructed FEMA to supply:

President Trump also outlined the number of supplies that had been sent to New York state as of March 19:

The President also outlined the number of supplies sent to Washington state:

More than 254,000 Americans have been tested and received results for coronavirus, and more than 30,000 have tested positive. These numbers do not yet include local hospitals or private labs that have conducted tests. Commercial labs should be caught up with the backlog of testing by the middle of next week, and should prioritize inpatient testing going forward.

The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) announced that it is providing support for a U.S. phase 2/3 clinical trial to evaluate Regeneron Pharmaceutical’s Kevzara as a potential treatment for COVID-19. Kevzara is currently approved by FDA for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, and was developed under a collaboration between Regeneron and Sanofi. As a reminder, NIAID is also sponsoring a randomized controlled clinical trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the antiviral remdesivir.

FDA announced that hospitals and other health care professionals can repurpose ventilators that were originally intended for other environments, such as using ventilators currently used in ambulances for patients treated inside facilities. FDA also said that manufacturers that would normally need FDA clearance to modify a ventilator could now do so without an agency review.

FDA provided additional information on the Cepheid point-of-care diagnostic test.  Cepheid says tests will begin to ship on Friday, March 27 with plans to begin testing on Monday, March 30.  The test uses a machine called GeneXpert that can run the full test in 45 minutes.  There are more than 23,000 automated GeneXpert systems worldwide and about 5,000 in the United States.

Why long-term investors should never sell stocks in a panic

These three factors mentioned in the article must be considered together:

1. If an investor missed the S&P 500's 10 best days in each decade, total returns would be just 91%, strikingly below the 14,962% return for investors who held steady throughout the ups and downs.

2. The best days generally follow the worst days for stocks.

3. "Households," defined as retail investors (as well as some professionals such as hedge funds), are the only subset of shareholders that have "sold equities during each bear market since 1950."

Be sure to read the entire article; there is a wealth of good advice.

from Richard Zuendt

Yesterday [on Facebook] I posted an article, from Rolling Stone, citing an article from Politico.com. It dealt with the idea that DOJ is studying the idea of suspending Constitutional Rights to enforce home quarantining. Some people feel that by posting such an article, from such source, I am pushing a liberal agenda. I don't think so, because it has happened before.

John Adams help pass what is known as the, Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798. These acts restricted the activities of foreign residents in the country and limited freedom of speech and of the press.

Abraham Lincoln, old honest Abe, suspended habeas corpus which allowed for the indefinite detention of 'disloyal persons' without trial.

Woodrow Wilson got congress to pass two laws, the Espionage Act and the Sedition Act. With these laws, no one could say anything "insulting or abusing the U.S. government, the flag, the Constitution or the military." If a person was found guilty of violating these rules they could receive a hefty fine and 20 years in prison.

Franklin Roosevelt, with a stroke of a pen, interned (really imprisoned) all those of Japanese origin. He also ordered the Secretary of Agriculture to implement a rule that actually told a person how much food they could grow for their own family. He had the opinion that the Constitution is "quaint" and outdated.

And in the fight against terrorism, George W. Bush justified arresting people “whom he and his agents determined to be this country’s enemies without obtaining a warrant, letting them hear the charges against them, or following other safeguards against wrongful punishment guaranteed by the Bill of Rights.

So I don't care who brought up the subject to start off with, we need to be aware of previous times that our government felt it was in our "best" interest to deny us our God given rights as Americans. Just remember, those who fail to study history, are doomed to repeat it.

Despite coronavirus, Trump administration still delivering long-term economic wins

Even The New York Times had to concede that Trump was overseeing "blockbuster" job creation. 273,000 new jobs were added in February, bringing the 2020 total to over half a million. These numbers are up significantly from last year's average of 179,000 jobs, putting this year on pace to be one of the strongest of the decade.

Despite the short-term harm caused by coronavirus, jobless claims actually went down by roughly 4,000 this past week as compared to the week before.

The president prevented China from winning control of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WPO) – the United Nations agency that protects patents and IP from theft in the global economy. This victory was crucial because China has routinely stolen U.S. innovators' intellectual property, costing the U.S. between $225 and 600 billion a year. While the administration has cracked down on it in the past by passing the USMCA trade deal, this move is far more crucial because it has solidified a pro-IP stalwart in one of the highest positions of authority for a full six years.

Democrat Operative Admits: We’ve Been Rigging Elections “for 50 Years”

"We’ve been bussing people in to deal with you for 50 years and we’re not going to stop now," said Scott Foval, until recently the national field director for left-wing group Americans United for Change.

Foval goes into great details about how fraudulent out-of-state voters are hired on at fake 'shell companies' just so they can register to vote and are then paid for their votes through 'paychecks' from those same entities. Foval goes on to detail how the operatives bring people in to different states, using their own personal vehicles or by having shell companies rent vehicles, instead of using busses which would make it easier to prove a conspiracy.

Assembly Bill 5, or AB5, went into effect on Jan. 1, essentially making the gig economy illegal in the state. All workers are classified as employees unless they:
1. perform their work independent of supervision;
2. have an established business doing the same sort of work for multiple customers;
3. are doing work that isn’t part of the company’s core business.
The law effectively bans Uber, Lyft, freelance journalism, the Lake Tahoe Music Festival, the Island City Opera in Alameda, and others. Roughly a million jobs are put at risk by AB5.
