NZ Virus Free

Timothy Birdnow

People often mistakenly thin New Zealand is close to Austrlia, like Britain to Europe (at least people in America think that.) It isn't; it's 2,587 miles. That's the closest major land mass. The question isn't how did they do it but rather how could they not.

Coronavirus: New Zealand Claims no Community Cases as Lockdown Eases

There are a scant 4.794 million Kiwis in the country (the nickname for the people, not the fruit.) The land area of New Zealand is 103,500 sq mi so we are looking at 18  people per square mile. How can you NOT get control of a virus with such a low population density? These people are already socially distant.

NIH to Investigate Funding for Chicom Lab in Wuhan

Timothy Birdnow

The U.S. is investigating the company that gave U.S. tax dollars to China's Wuhan biological warfare lab.

From Breitbart:

A letter from Dr. Michael Lauer, the NIH’s deputy director for extramural research, to Kevin Olival of EcoHealth Alliance and Naomi Schrag of Columbia University, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, informs them the matter is under investigation.

"EcoHealth Alliance, Inc. is the recipient, as grantee, of an NIH grant entitled ‘Understanding the Risk of Bat Coronavirus Emergency,’” Lauer wrote in the letter, dated April 19. "It is our understanding that one of the sub-recipients of the grant funds is the Wuhan Institute of Virology (‘WIV’). It is our understanding that WIV studies the interaction between corona viruses and bats. The scientific community believes that the coronavirus causing COVID-19 jumped from bats to humans likely in Wuhan where the COVID-19 pandemic began. There are now allegations that the current crisis was precipitated by the release from WIV of the coronavirus responsible for COVID-19. Given these concerns, we are pursuing suspension of WIV from participation in Federal programs.”

Unless the DOJ is involved (and perhaps not then) this thing will wind up as a whitewash, methinks. The Chinese have a lot of money to spread around and no doubt have agents inside the NIH. Furthermore, they have a lot of politicians in their pockets (for example, Dianne Feinstein and Joe Biden) and there is enormous pressure to let this go. The purpose of any lower level investigation is to close the case.

That case should NOT be closed. But Washington runs on money and power and the Chicoms have both. It is a habitation of harlots and I have little doubt the Chinese will buy or bully their way out of this if we let them.

This is why you don't do national security or anything related to it by farming it out to the lowest bidder.

Truths on the Wuflu

Timothy Birdnow

Quadrant Magazine has a fine article about the whole pandemic, and why some subsequent truths.

From the article:

This cursed pandemic, and the accompanying panicky overreaction, is a learning experience. A first thing we are learning is that massive death tolls are usually invisible. Death upon death with nary a mention. Oh, the sheer callousness of it!

I took CIA data for country-by-country death rates in 2017. Australia’s was 7.3 deaths per thousand people. On this basis, we can expect to suffer in the order of 186,000 deaths in 2020. That is on average about 3,600 deaths each and every week; mostly unmourned by vox populi.

As of late in evening Anzac Day, 81 deaths have reportedly occurred on Australian soil as a result of the Wuhan virus. Predominantly, those who have died have lived at least their biblically allotted three score years and ten and, as well, had co-morbidities. All of these deaths, about 10 per week on average, since the first death on March 1, have been made conspicuously visible.

Each death is reported on individually and with emphasis. The humbug of "every death is a tragedy” compulsorily preludes any otherwise sane comment on the government’s dystopian experiment to cure the virus by collapsing the economy. One or two people die aged 92 in a nursing home and "death toll climbs” is the typical headline.

The contrasting treatment is stark. Convulsions over "the tragedy” of just 81 deaths; indifference to the 28,000 or so people (including children) who, on average, die in the same number of weeks in other ways.


When we look back at 2020 from the vantage point of, say, 2025, the Wuhan virus deaths too will be background noise. They will be unnoticeable on the graphs. And we, who are not their friends or their families, will not remember them or, truth to say, care a wit that they have died.


A second thing we are learning is that most people are completely seduced by the moment. For them, there is no past to learn from and the future is completely coloured by the present.


We will get back to normal-normal and, yes, this will include being within kissing distance of grandparents, rubbing shoulders at sporting events and in crowded bars and, such is hectic modern life, jostling in overcrowded modes of public transport.

Shaking hands and hugging will return (though, personally, I could do without the hugging). I could say something about the return of those downright dangerous activities, to wit, fornication and casual and commercial sex but I imagine they didn’t stop.

A third thing we are learning is that many of our fellow citizens will willingly dance to any tune governments play; however discordant. Instructions to cower in your bathtub, would be greeted with, ‘oh well you know, the government must be right’. Sheep, looking for all the world like people, are seemingly in great abundance. The inimitable Eli Wallach called it out, playing the Mexican bandit Calvera in The Magnificent Seven. "If God did not want them sheared, He would not have made them sheep.”

The are no doubt other things we are learning but I want to end with a confirmation rather than with an instance of new learning. As we know from the economic desolation they cause when in charge; from their national self-loathing; from their agenda to rob us of pride in our past; from their determination to tear down institutions (like traditional marriage) which have served us so well; from their overt hostility towards Christianity; from their intrigue to divide us by race and by sex, leftists are a plague on the world, more virulent than any virus. And, true to form, is their doleful advocacy in the current crisis.

Want more stringent lockdowns to keep more people out of work and in despair? Look left. Want ever-longer lockdowns to maximise long-lasting damage to people’s livelihoods, mental health and wellbeing? Look left. Want the loss of yet more individual liberties and inalienable rights? Look left.

Ignoring the Obvious

Timothy Birdnow

The St. Louis task force on the Coronavirus says they don't know if we've peaked yet or not.

A gentleman named Sam Martin posted this on facebook. He made this graph from their own data:
No photo description available.

The blue line is total daily hospitalized, red line is ICU beds, green is ICU with ventilator, and purple is deaths.

So why are we waiting until May 15 to reevaluate?

The Energy Slayer

Timothy Birdnow

Oil is the lifeblood of modern industrial society, and the collapse of oil prices presents a clear and present danger to the world order and even our national survival.

Pemex, Mexico's national oil company, is in trouble.

Five Reasons Why Mexico's Oil Industry is Destined for Disaster

That a socialized industry should find itself unable to adapt during a time of world crisis should come as no surprise, but what does it all mean?

If Pemex collapses due to the collapse in oil prices, the Mexican economy could well collapse. And if THAT happens we'll have half of Mexico living in the United States.

Meanwhile, American oil wells are closing at a record pace. From the article:

Baker Hughes reported on Friday that the number of oil and gas rigs in the US fell again this week by 64, falling to 465, with the total oil and gas rigs clocking in at 526 fewer than this time last year as U.S. drillers make hasty and significant changes to their operations.

Over the last six weeks, oil and gas rigs combined have shed a total of 327 rigs.

The number of oil rigs decreased for the week by 60 rigs, according to Baker Hughes data, bringing the total to 378—a 427-rig loss year over year. It is the fewest number of active oil rigs since July 2016.

The total number of active gas rigs in the United States fell by 4 according to the report, to 85. This compares to 186 a year ago.

The number of active rigs taken offline over the last six weeks is a clear indication that the U.S. oil industry is being pressured to make significant and painful changes in response to storage that is near capacity and the low price of oil.

So this virus may effectively kill the U.S. oil and gas industry, something the Paris Accord sought but failed to accomplish (since there was never an actual treaty and the U.S. decided not to play.) And if the U.S. oil industry disappears prices for gas will skyrocket. The Green Revolution - the world of poverty and limited mobility - will be at hand.

And Europe will be forced to kowtow to anyone who can supply oil and gas, as their own industry is being strangled by this. It is estimated that twenty percent of energy companies in Europe could go belly up.

One final thought; oil and gas are the cornerstone of Russia's economy. This is going to absolutely cream them. It may make them desperate. We don't want a desperate Russia for any number of reasons. Russia could be quite unpleasant if they think they are about to lose their world influence.

This Wuhan virus is just starting to show it's cards.

Protests are Just Fine - for the Left

Timothy Birdnow

Daniel Greenfield discusses how "reopen" protests are banned or blocked by Facebook while protests against the Trump Administration are allowed to go forward and praised by the media.

From the article;

While New Jersey State cops had arrested the organizer of the ‘Reopen’ protest in Trenton, the Philadelphia Inquirer described members of Refuse Fascism Philly, at least one of them outfitted in ‘Handmaid’ garb, driving to dump fake body bags at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey while "police officers wearing respirators monitored the peaceful demonstration” and made no arrests.

The paper, which has blasted the "reopen’ protests, offered positive coverage of the anti-Trump protest.

The Communist organization’s Facebook site, including links to its protest and photos from the event, is still standing. The social media giant has refused to take it down the way it has ‘Reopen’ sites.

While Facebook has claimed that it views protests during the coronavirus lockdown era as illegal, it is treating protests against the lockdown where conservatives wave American flags very differently than it does protests against President Trump by Communist activists. The patriots are banned from Facebook while the Communists are welcome. The political bias is unmistakable and the agenda is all too clear.

Facebook isn’t banning protests during the coronavirus lockdowns. It’s banning conservative protests.

The local CBS affiliate in Chicago covered a protest by Refuse Fascism on April 18th and offered no criticism of the irresponsible behavior of going out to dump body bags outside a Trump building at a time when everyone is being told to stay home to avoid spreading the virus.

Fuel Ships Piling Up

Timothy Birdnow

Fuel tankers are stacking up in Singapore as the unfortunate owners have no place to go with the unwanted fuel.


The onshore storage squeeze is being seen across the region. In India, tanks were 95 per cent full as of last week as refiners scrambled to find space to hold their excess fuel, even turning to pump stations and depots. In Singapore, fuel stockpiles rose to a four-year high in mid-April.

Utilizing tankers has become the next best option, with analytics firm Vortexa estimating floating crude oil storage in Asia at a four-year high. Taking into account the waters off Singapore as well as Malaysia, data intelligence firm Kpler saw a 45 per cent month-on-month increase in the volume of clean fuels - comprising naphtha, gasoline, jet fuel and diesel - stored on ships to 6.64 million barrels as of April 23.

Across the world, freight rates for both clean as well as dirty tankers have surged dramatically along with rising demand for floating storage. Also, shippers are using a strategy known as slow steaming, where they deliberately reduce the speed of tankers to increase the shipments' transit time while awaiting the emergence of buying interest from customers, or save on fuel.

And when national economies come back online, this bubble will absolutely burst, with such major reductions in production and refining triggering shortages and incredible price jumps.

And who do you suppose the media will blame for that?

Shelter in Place Helps Promote Coronavirus

Timothy Birdnow

A full forty percent of Wuflu deaths were in nursing homes and other such facilities in California.

According to PJ Media:

There have been reports of coronavirus deaths at nursing homes since last month. The clusters were developing at eleven separate nursing
home-like facilities. But now we know that fully 40% of the Wuhan virus deaths were people in nursing homes and "institutional" facilities. The County reports that 3,115 cases occurred in nursing homes and similar facilities; 1,826 of the cases were residents and the rest were staff.


These are people in SHELTER IN PLACE situations. They had been practicing what the authorities have forced the rest of us to do for a while now. One wonders if this disease wouldn't have burned through that particular segment of the population had they NOT been sheltered in place?  (I am being rhetorical; don't jump down my throat for being stupid.)

The article also informs us:

The county also reported that 100 homeless people have tested positive for the coronavirus, 55 of whom were in shelters.

Gee; whoda thunk that!

The Industrial Slowdown Heals the Ozone Hole - Except it Didn't

Timothy Birdnow

A week or two ago I made a modest proposal; I suggested that, since ultraviolet kills viruses, we should ramp up our use of freon and CFC's to thin the ozone layer and increase uv insolation of the planet Greater uv exposure should kill of this CV 19 virus nicely, I argued, and so, inspired by the geoengineering projects suggested by the Climate Change gurus, I suggested we geoengineer the planet to stem this terrible pandemic.

I fear my idea was not enthusiastically received.

Especially not from Mother Earth, who took the occasion to close up the ozone hole.

Mother Nature can be such a puta.

While we are all under lockdown amid coronavirus, nature is doing its bit to heal itself from the harmful effects of the environment caused by man-made air pollution over the years. What comes a positive is that the largest hole in the Ozone layer-- spreading 1 million square kilometres-- above the Arctic has closed due to unusual atmospheric conditions.

The hole was first identified by scientists in March earlier this year. Copernicus Climate Change Service (C3S) and Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Services (CAMS) by the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) confirmed the development.

Sharing a post on the micro-blogging website, Copernicus ECMWF wrote, "The unprecedented 2020 northern hemisphere #OzoneHole has come to an end. The #PolarVortex split, allowing #ozone-rich air into the Arctic, closely matching last week's forecast from the #CopernicusAtmosphere Monitoring Service."

The unprecedented 2020 northern hemisphere #OzoneHole has come to an end. The #PolarVortex split, allowing #ozone-rich air into the Arctic, closely matching last week's forecast

After leading the casual reader into believing this closure is a result of changes in human industrial emissions, the writer contradicts himself, admitting this has little to do with it:

But, the closing of the hole has nothing to do too with the reduction in levels of pollution amid lockdown. It's because of the polar vortex, high-altitude currents that are responsible for bringing cold air to polar regions.

Such holes in the ozone layer are quite common above the Antarctic at the South Pole especially during July to September but, the ozone layer hole above the Arctic at this time was unusual.

It is believed that the polar vortex, the high-altitude currents that are responsible for bringing cold air to the polar regions, is responsible for the healing of the layer.

So why credit the drop in industrial emissions at the beginning of the article?

Because the author knows most people only read the first paragraph or two. He does not want to admit that Nature made this happen. He wants to promote the environmentalist position that industry is destroying the planet and this does not comport with that claim. So he starts the article with the suggestion this is happening because of the lockdown then, to cover himself, admits the truth at the bottom of the article. It's very devious and underhanded - but par for the course for so much reporting we see these days.

The California Pandemic

Timothy Birdnow

Writing at City Journal, Joel Kotkin discusses California's post Wuhan situation.

The pandemic has disproportionately hurt poor and working-class people, precisely those Californians already suffering under the state’s strict regulatory regime. The huge but generally low-paying tourism industry is particularly vulnerable to declines in travel, especially from Asia.

Not all the pain will be felt by the working classes, though. The pandemic is likely to stall or even derail some of the new IPOs that the state relies on for revenues. A reversal in real-estate price inflation, another key source of state funding, also seems likely. California faces a likely scenario of falling revenues and soaring demand for government services.

Citing a series of annual budget surpluses, some progressiveshave argued that California has developed a "fiscally responsible” form of sustainable capitalism. Yet, as even former governor Jerry Brownpredicted, the state’s "Johnny one-note” tech economy would eventually stumble, reducing the huge returns on capital gains that remain critical to state revenues. Even before the coronavirus, this lapse seemed imminent, given the recent poor performanceof tech IPOs and the $100 billion drop in the value of privately held "unicorn” startups, once seen as destined to become the next great source—a la Google and Facebook—of income for state coffers. Capital-gains payments, which doubled last year to over $15 billion, could now drop by a large margin, as occurred in 2008, drilling a big hole in the budget.

The coronavirus-induced recession will make clear how tenuous California’s financial condition has become. The state’s much-touted $21 billion operating-budget surplus is likely to disappear entirely under the weight of declining revenues and rising welfare costs. Since March, California’s chronically underfunded unemployment-insurance claims grew by 1.6 million filers.

Coupled with a drop in revenues, expanding demand for services will prove catastrophic. More than two-thirds of California citieshave no funds set aside for retiree health care and other retirement expenses; the budgets of 12 of the 15 largest cities are in the red. The state overall owes $1 trillion in pension debt, notes former Democratic state senator Joe Nation. Truth in Accounting in 2019 placed California, despite the tech boom, 42nd in fiscal health among the states.

He goes on to discuss how California's restaurant industry, low paid but vigorous and vital to tourism, is going to go down. And international trade - another big source of revenue for California - is trending for a definite permanent dropoff.

California's day of reckoning may be at hand.

It's terrible news for Conservatives, I might add. I doubt anyone will learn a lesson from it, and what will happen is many of the people who caused the disaster in California will move away, to Colorado, Arizona, Montana, Nevada, bringing their infection, one far worse than COVID 19, with them. They will destroy their host states like Wuhan virus destroys people's lungs. Only they will not be mostly benign as is the Chinese virus.

The real disease in California is Progressivism. And that is largely incurable.

Big Brother is Watching Your Medication

Bev Ehlen from Concerned Women for America warns us about drug data bases in Missouri:

Stop SS#2 HB1693! I bet someone you know is taking a prescription for testosterone. Interesting, for years I have been explaining to Missourians that the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program that is being purported to address the opioid problem is not limited to prescriptions for opiates only-every prescription for a Schedule II, III, or IV drug will be captured into this database. The prescription information for many more Missourians will be captured into the PDMP than opioid users-yes, those taking prescriptions for testosterone, stimulants such as Ritalin (yes, your ten year old son's info will be in this database), sleep aids such as Ambian, and anti-depressant

s. Plus SS#2 HB1693 (like the other bills for a PDMP) will allow the sharing of this information with public and private entities. There's nothing for which to be concerned...NOT !

Progressive Rage and the Viral Weapon

Timothy Birdnow

Dr. Roy Spencer started a discussion on his Facebook page. Dr. Spencer observes:

Rather than people hating on Trump, they should be asking why The People rejected all of the professional politicians on both sides in 2016, and maybe doing something about that. He wasn't elected by accident.

I explain:

The Progressives have been moving the entire world towards their vision for decades. They want a world without borders, with strong international instituions, with multinational corporations with rising socialism as the primary economic model. They want a society based on the philosophy of de Sade (who captured Europe's imagination with his ideal of sex as a casual act, like drinking coffee.) They have been systematically attaining this. But the public has rebelled worldwide - here with Trump, in Britain with Brexit and Boris Johnson, with the Yellow Vest protests, in Hong Kong etc. - and the Elites around have seen their grip slipping and don't like it. Like the Bible says "Woe unto the inhabitants of the Earth for Satan has come down to you in great wrath because he knows his time is short". That rather describes these "citizens of the world" who are furious that the idiot public rejected their vision. So they want to destroy Trump and punish America (which is why they are so gung-ho on keeping America shut down and ruining our national economy.) And of course there are so many people who believe what the media says, or who believe what their union tells them, or whatnot. But the anger is ultimately the anger of losing a lifelong dream; the fundamental transformation of America and the world. Obama promised he would fundamentally transform America and he almost did. If Trump hadn't "stolen" their rightful victory the would have triumphantly marched into the Brave New World. He didn't just win office, he destroyed decades of "progress" towards their dream. No wonder they are so enraged.

Vote Thieves Eyeing Nevada

Timothy Birdnow

The Democrats are gearing up to steal Nevada.

From Fox News:

A prominent Democratic lawyer who represented Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is threatening to sue the state of Nevada unless it immediately suspends prosecutionsforballot harvesting before the June 9 primary, among a slew of other demands, according to a letterobtained by Fox News on Tuesday.

Marc Elias, now representing the Nevada Democratic Party, also called for a substantial expansion to in-person voting access in the upcoming primary —though just days ago, he said it was a "national disgrace" that Wisconsin was moving ahead with in-person voting amid the coronavirus pandemic. In both cases, he cited health concerns.

Democrats had feared that low turnout in Wisconsin would hurt their chances, while they have a more optimistic outlook in Nevada.

Looks like the vote thieves are ramping things up.

In his letter, Elias argued that "many Nevada voters will not be able to return their mail-in ballots themselves and do not have family members –or are separated from these family members because of social distancing –who can do so for them."

"We ask that your office and the office of the Nevada Attorney General immediately announce a suspension of prosecutions under this statute for all elections for which mail-in balloting will be the primary means of voting in the state," Elias said.

At the same time, Eliascalled for Nevada to stop throwing out ballots when signatures on voters' ballots appear different from those on voters' registrations, saying "lay election officials have never had the necessary expertise" to make an accurate determination.


Elias is the operative who hired Fusion GPS to produce the Steele Dossier to attack Donald Trump.

The Idiocy Test

Timothy Birdnow

Scott Adams points out that the media is lying about Trump's alleged "bleach and Lysol" comments.

1@ScottAdamsSays There's a massive IQ test on the Internet today. If you think the president was asking Dr. Birx about injecting bleach or isopropyl alcohol into coronavirus patients -- because it sounded that way to you -- you failed the test.

CNN ran an ad promoting this disingenuous poppycock: and Nancy Pelosi lied claiming that the President had said people should kill the virus by injecting Lysol. In fact, the president’s reference was to Ultraviolet catheter technology. It was recently in the news and Dr Birx was unfamiliar with it. Here’s how it works. As for other means of disinfecting Virus patients besides the ultraviolet healight others are exploring such things as controlled ethanol vapor inhalation.

 UV catheter tech: AP Press Release https://apnews.com/b44f4531071e6204023f7b8e16f59d4b Vimeo video showing the premise. https://vimeo.com/411630782 On top of that, there is an older tech, that works, but is forbidden by our medical masters: Ultra Violet Blood Irrradiation https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6122858/

1@ScottAdamsSays There's a massive IQ test on the Internet today. If you think the president was asking Dr. Birx about injecting bleach or isopropyl alcohol into coronavirus patients -- because it sounded that way to you -- you failed the test.

Meanwhile Tweedle Dee aka Dr. Deborah Birx explained to Fox that the President was asking logical questions and thinking out loud:

White House coronavirus response coordinator Dr. Deborah Birx defended President Trump in an interview on "Watters' World" that aired Saturday, saying the president meant no harm by inquiring about using disinfectant to possibly treat coronavirus. Trump, in his White House coronavirus task force briefing Thursday, appeared to suggest that light and disinfectants, respectively, might have the potential to treat the coronavirus -- prompting a number of stories condemning the comments, others seeking to defend the president and a scathing tweet from presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The president has since said he was being "sarcastic" with his comments.


"Question that probably some of you are thinking of if you're totally into that world, which I find to be very interesting. So supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether it's ultraviolet or just very powerful light. And I think you said that hasn't been checkedbut you're going to test it," Trump said Thursday.

"And then I said, supposing you brought the light inside the body, which you can do either through the skin or in some other way. And I think you said you're gonna test that, too. Sounds interesting, right?"

Trump continued: "And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or, or almost a cleaning? Because you see it gets on the lungs and it does a tremendous number, so it will be interesting to check that.Sothat you're going to have to use medical doctors. But it sounds, it sounds interesting to me. So we'll see.

And here are some links that explain what he was talking about:

UV catheter tech: AP Press Release https://apnews.com/b44f4531071e6204023f7b8e16f59d4b Vimeo video showing the premise. https://vimeo.com/411630782 On top of that, there is an older tech, that works, but is forbidden by our medical masters: Ultra Violet Blood Irrradiation https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6122858/

Trump certainly never told anyone to drink bleach or lysol. And he did not suggest something that ridiculous; chemotherapy is essentially drinking a poisonous compound, and radiation is rather like using internal light. We use medication all the time, and it is generally a poison - if taken in an uncareful way.

But the media already knew that; they just couldn't pass a chance to attack the President. And so many idiots fell for it.

So Who Do You Trust?

Mark Musser

Two real doctors from Bakersfield, California, who have been working in the emergency room with COVID-19 patients, crunched the numbers for us with regard to the coronavirus pandemic/ scare. They have concluded, based on real empirical data (vs. CDC modeling) that is publicly available to anyone and everyone coming from various locations in the USA, and from across the world as well, that millions and millions of people have been exposed to the virus already, and this makes the death toll of this virus very low - above the regular flu, but nowhere near the crisis that so many have presumed it all to be. They repeated this over and over again in this segment before a group of testy reporters who were challenging them - who, of course, are not doctors.

They are also experts on immunity, and said repeatedly the worst thing you can do is to keep people at home as such restrictions will make them more vulnerable to the virus because the immune system will start to slow down holed up in the house and thus decrease its capacity to fight it off. They further pointed out how their doctor friends are being pressured from the CDC to sign off on death certificates that COVID 19 was the cause of death. In other words, the number of deaths allegedly credited to the coronavirus are inflated and too high as they now stand. However, even if they do stand as they are - the data is still telling us that the death rate is very low as tragic as it all may be when it hits certain folks pretty hard - particularly as it gets into the lungs.

In any case, it thus seems that the more that is known about this pandemic, the more clear it is becoming it is not the crisis scenario that has been so often presented to us 24/7 from media sources. They strongly recommend that people use caution and common sense, but that they should return to work per doctor's orders. Closely related, they also bring up the problem on how domestic spouse abuse, including sexual molestation even of children due to drugs and alcohol, is on a sharp increase because of so many people being forced to stay at home. He said he and his doctor friends have seen this personally in the emergency room, and is not something he is making up.

So who do you trust? Who do you believe? That is the essential test of life, is it not?

Observations from Power Line

Dana Mathewson

Power Line's Professor Steven Hayward offers a number of "Observations on The Great Hunkerins," of which I will include only two: one rather amusing and the other deadly serious.


The Federation of German Food and Drink Industries (BVE) said the coronavirus pandemic has exposed poor cooking skills among Germans.

"We’ve known for years that cooking competence has drastically declined in Germany,” BVE General Manager Christoph Minhoff told the DPA news agency. . .

"People are rather dramatically forced to rely on their own culinary skills now that the offerings of fast-food restaurants, French fries stands and the Italian restaurant around the corner are not an option,” said Minhoff. "Now people stand in supermarkets and ask themselves, ‘OK how do I make a burger myself?'”Minhoff added.

No speculation on whether a similar situation exists here in the U.S. I do know that friends of my wife's and mine are participating in an e-mail recipe exchange. I've not yet evaluated any of the recipes, save one for scones that looks delicious.


It is not clear yet whether our response to COVID-19 will turn out to be the single greatest policy mistake in the nation’s history (not counting the Civil War, which shouldn’t be understood as a policy episode exactly), or just one of the top five. We await how soon we shall reopen the country, and what additional steps are taken to get the country moving again. Will we bail out profligate states like Illinois and reward the public employee unions? Will we elect Joe Biden or some other Democratic zombie in November?

It will take a long time to assemble the balance sheet, in part because a full accounting will need to calculate how many deaths from cancer, heart disease and other factors occur because we aren’t treating or screening for those much larger causes of mortality right now.

Another mistake is already apparent. We know from past recessions that extending unemployment insurance—to 99 weeks back in 2009-2010—actually delays recovery, as a lot of marginal workers delay entry back into the workforce, even when jobs come open. At the present moment, we have added an extra $600 a week to standard unemployment benefits, bringing the average weekly check to about $900. It was an understandably impulse amidst these circumstances, but it is already having some ill effect, as reported in yesterday’s note from the Committee to Unleash Prosperity.

There is much more in this excellent article, found here: https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2020/04/observations-on-the-great-hunkering-12.php I urge you to read it all.

No, Lockdown's Don't Work

Joseph Bast points out:

Very impressive study using international as well as U.S. county data to measure the effectiveness of various policies in reducing death rates. "Many policies do provide public-health benefits. Masks work and should be mandatory, just as they were during the 1918 influenza pandemic. School cancellations are hugely important, and reliably show up as a key part of reducing infection. Bans on large assemblies are an obvious policy with good support. Restrictions on long-distance travel help reduce the occurrence of new outbreaks. Centralized quarantine helps actively reduce the spread of COVID-19 to a very low level.

"But ordering people to cower in their homes, harassing people for having playdates in the park, and ordering small businesses to close up shop regardless of their hygienic procedures simply has no demonstrated effectiveness. These policies should be replaced by stringent mask requirements, large-scale centralized quarantine protocols, and renewed emphasis on empowering people to protect themselves and their neighbors by adopting social distancing during their everyday life.”

The Lie of Trump's Poisoning People

Timothy Birdnow

The news media is claiming that poisonings from ingesting bleach and other chemicals has spiked thanks to President Trump's comments.

It's a lie.

Trump didn't say that anyway.

The former conservative S.E. Cupp is spreading this lie too.

If the media and his enemies want to attack Trump they have plenty of legitimate things to go after the man with. That they have to make stuff up speaks volumes.
