Lori Loughlin demands judge dismiss her case and drop all charges

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 20:11

Lori Loughlin of “Full House” fame, her husband Mossimo Giannulli, and other parents involved in the college admissions bribery case are urging a judge to drop charges against them because of what they describe as “extraordinary” misconduct by prosecutors.

Defense attorneys for Loughlin, Giannulli, and the other parents sent a letter to the judge on Wednesday asking for charges to be dismissed, saying the case can’t go forward because investigators allegedly bullied their informant into giving false information and concealing evidence that would have helped the parents’ cases.

“The extraordinary government misconduct presented in this case threatens grave harm to defendants and the integrity of this proceeding. That misconduct cannot be ignored,” the attorneys wrote, according to Fox News.

Loughlin and Giannulli are scheduled to go to trial in October for numerous charges related to them allegedly paying $500,000 in bribe money to have their two daughters admitted to the University of Southern California as members of the crew team, even though neither girl had ever rowed before.

If convicted on all charges, the couple is facing forty years in prison, but their attorneys claim that prosecutors withheld evidence proving that they thought the money was legitimate donations for the school rather than bribes for officials.

The evidence that defense attorneys say were withheld were notes from admissions consultant Rick Singer, who was the mastermind behind the scheme.

In the notes, which were not given to the defense until a month ago, Singer claimed that FBI agents had told him to say that he had told the parents involved that the money they were paying was bribes.

“They continue to ask me to tell a fib and not restate what I told my clients as to where there money was going — to the program not the coach and that it was a donation and they want it to be a payment,” Singer wrote.

In their letter to the judge, the defense lawyers claim that the notes prove that Singer was bullied by investigators into lying.

“For government agents to coerce an informant into lying on recorded calls to generate false inculpatory evidence against investigative targets—and to then knowingly prosecute those targets using that false evidence—is governmental malfeasance of the worst kind,” they wrote.

The parents’ lawyers went on to accuse the authorities of letting Singer delete thousands of text messages from his phone before launching an “aggressive (and highly successful) pressure campaign” to get parents to plead guilty.

“While withholding the notes and many other examples of material exculpatory information, the government attempted to coerce defendants into pleading guilty by threatening that if they did not, they would face additional charges,” they stated.

If the judge does not decide to dismiss the case, the defense said that he should at the very least ban prosecutors from using “tainted recordings” at trial and order a hearing to “uncover the full truth about the recordings and the government’s efforts to fabricate and conceal evidence.”

The U.S. attorney’s office in Boston would not comment when asked about the defense’s letter.

Restaurant in China hangs banner ‘celebrating’ coronavirus pandemic in the U.S.

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 19:55

Chinese media has confirmed that a restaurant in Shenyang, China did indeed hang a banner outside of their restaurant “celebrating” the China coronavirus pandemic that has hit the USA.

The Global Times is a state-run news publication which has spread rumors that the U.S. created the “Wuhan virus” and used it as an attack against the Chinese. They identified the restaurant as “Mother Yang’s Porridge Restaurant.”

I can only imagine what horrors they’re serving up in there…

MORE NEWS: Opinion: It Doesn’t Take 833 Pages To Address Non-Working Americans During This Coronavirus Pandemic!

The publication claims police arrested the manager who put up the banner that wished for the pandemic to do as much damage in the United States and Japan as possible. Yeah, sure they did.

“Celebrating the epidemic in the U.S. and wishing coronavirus a nice trip to Japan,” a large red banner over the restaurant read, according to the Global Times’ translation. Other translations note that the Chinese characters also insult Japan as “little” and hope the coronavirus spreads “forever after that.” Vlogger Jennifer Zeng shared the tweet and picture of the restaurants.

Banner at restaurant in #CCP ruled #China says: "Congratulations on the #epidemic in the US! We wish the epidemic in dwarf Japan will last forever and ever!"
What do you think? I call it anti-humanity. Do these kinds of people have the right to protest again "racism"? #CCPVirus pic.twitter.com/N6dODztUI8

— Jennifer Zeng 曾錚 (@jenniferatntd) March 23, 2020

This move comes at a time when relations between China and the rest of the world are very fragile, especially after China lied about the coronavirus and withheld crucial information that could have saved many lives. I don’t know about you, but I plan to do my part by no longer buying anything “Made in China.”

Would Dr. Anthony Fauci prescribe chloroquine to coronavirus patients? ‘Of Course’ he says

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 17:54

The Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said on Tuesday that he would definitely prescribe chloroquine to Americans diagnosed with coronavirus in the wake of testimonies stating it could treat the deadly disease.

Fauci Asked if Chloroquine Can Be Effective Against Coronavirus: “Yeah, of course”

Fauci appeared on Philadelphia’s AM 990 “The Answer Radio,” where host Chris Stigall asked him, “If you’re a doctor listening to me right now and a patient with coronavirus feels like they want to try [chloroquine] and you’re their doctor, you’re not Anthony Fauci the guy running the coronavirus task force, would you say ‘alright, we’ll give it a whirl?'”

“Yeah, of course, particularly if people have no other option,” Fauci replied.

“You want to give them hope,” he continued. “In fact, for physicians in this country, these drugs are approved drugs for other reasons. They’re anti-malaria drugs and they’re drugs against certain autoimmune diseases, like lupus. Physicians throughout the country can prescribe that in an off-label way. Which means they can write it for something it was not originally approved for.”

He keeps refuting every dishonest, mean-spirited, divisive narrative from America's ravenous political media, but they'll keep trying to pit him against Trump… and you.

“People do that all the time, and it really is an individual choice between the physician and his or her patient as to whether or not they want to do that,” Fauci added.

Dr. Fauci pushes back on the idea that he dismissed that Chloroquine could be effective against Coronavirus: “I’m not dismissing it at all and I hope that interpretation wasn’t widespread.” pic.twitter.com/2eFkIXlTop

— Benny (@bennyjohnson) March 20, 2020

The Political Insider reported last week that French doctors had found the anti-malaria medicine to be “100%” effective in treating coronavirus. When President Trump announced that chloroquine had been found to be successful in treating this rampant illness, some in the media tried to blame him for the tragic death of someone who had mistakenly ingested fish tank cleaner.

Banning Chloroquine?

Despite Fauci giving chloroquine his seal of approval, Democratic Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed an emergency order banning the use of the drug to treat coronavirus.

This could be very shortsighted. Just because someone who didn’t understand what they were taking made a tragic mistake, does that change Dr. Fauci’s statement that chloroquine can be effective in combatting coronavirus?

And are some going to pretend this isn’t the case simply because President Trump also said this?

Maddening.

Joe Biden accused of sexual assault by former assistant

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 17:40

A former staff assistant to then-Senator Joe Biden claims she was sexually assaulted by the Democrat presidential candidate in 1993.

Tara Reade, the former staffer who said she viewed Biden as a “champion of women’s rights,” made the allegations in an audio interview with podcaster and journalist Katie Harper.

The details were rather graphic and shocking in nature.

C’mon Man

Reade explained that the entire exchange was odd. She was sent to deliver a gym bag to Biden when he allegedly, without any exchange of words, simply began kissing her.

“We were alone, and it was the strangest thing. There was no, like, exchange really, he just had me up against the wall,” she recalled. “His hands were on me and underneath my clothes.”

Reade proceeded to describe other more graphic actions Biden allegedly engaged in. We have no desire to enter into those details.

When the assault was over, she claims Biden said, “C’mon man, I heard you liked me.”

This is a story that @ReadeAlexandra has been trying to tell since it happened in 1993. It’s a story about sexual assault, retaliation and silencing. #meToo https://t.co/yHz3iFi9a5

Reade claims that after the assault, Biden dismissed her rather angrily saying, “You’re nothing to me!”

In the age of Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, and the ‘Me Too’ movement, it’ll be interesting to see if these allegations – despite their age – are covered with any seriousness in the mainstream media.

Thus far it seems, they are willing to ignore the story. Had this been an accusation against President Trump, it would be covered in a 24/7 news cycle.

Hillary on Biden’s Past Accusers: ‘Get Over It’

Since Biden announced his candidacy for president, several women have accused him of either inappropriate or unwanted touching, making them feel uncomfortable.

The wave of accusers began with former Nevada Assemblywoman Lucy Flores who alleged Biden inappropriately kissed her and smelled her hair.

Some of the uncomfortable interactions involving the former Vice President, captured in images over the last several years, have involved young people.

Hillary Clinton, another so-called champion of women, was asked about the numerous claims against Biden and said they paled in comparison to the need to get Donald Trump out of the White House.

“This man who’s there in the Oval Office right now poses a clear and present danger to the future of the United States,” Clinton said previously. “So get over it.”

Reade accused Biden of inappropriate touching similar to Flores’ allegations in 2019, but went silent according to The Intercept because of “accusations that she was doing the bidding of Russian President Vladimir Putin.”

Teacher accidentally texts mom about ‘dummy’ daughter

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 17:38

Frustrations with school closings and the coronavirus are spilling over in Madison, Wisconsin, where a teacher’s text inadvertently exposed what she really thinks of parents and students struggling at home.

Madison Police officer David White documented the March 16 episode between Tyeisha Ivy and her daughter’s fifth grade teacher at Hawthorne Elementary School, Mary Ringelstetter, in a report prompted by Ivy’s complaint the next day.

“Tyeisha explained that with the current situation with the kids not having school she was trying to get her daughter’s homework and internet access set up so her daughter could complete homework while school was shut down. Tyeisha was exchanging texts with Mary,” White wrote.

“Tyeisha explained that after some amount of time she received a text from Mary stating that Mary would like to reach through the phone and slap them. Tyeisha believed that Marry accidentally sent the text to her and that it was probably meant for one of Mary’s coworkers. Tyeisha stated that she and her daughter both now feel threatened because Mary had sent the text stating she wanted to reach through the phone and slap them.”

White contacted Ringelstetter, who confirmed Ivy’s account.

“Mary admitted that she did send the text to Tyeisha but that it was meant to go to someone else. Mary stated that she never had any real intention to wanting to slap them. She was just frustrated with the situation the crisis going on with the Corona Virus and issues at school,” White wrote.

Ringelstetter texted Ivy to apologize after realizing her mistake, according to the report.

Madison365 documented the texts between the two.

“I’ve had emails from dummy (student) and her mom. What is my lexis password? What is the library portal? How do I get on the home page?” the teacher wrote in one text.

“I want to slap them through the phone!” another read.

Ivy told the site she had several missed calls from the teacher on her phone, but wasn’t sure why until she read the texts.

Ivy said she called Ringelstetter back, but didn’t like the explanation her daughter “was just dumb with the computer,” Madison365 reports.

Ivy ended the call and sent a text to Ringelstetter instead: “YOU WANT TO SLAP ME THROUGH THE PHONE BECAUSE I WANT INFORMATION FOR MY CHILD.”

She demanded the teacher no longer contact her. Ivy told the site Ringelstetter continued to call, so she contacted Hawthorne principal Beth Lehman to complain.

“My daughter started freaking out,” she told Madison365. “My daughter is very hurt. This was a teacher that was supposed to graduate her from fifth grade. She just keeps crying.”

Both Lehman and Ringelstetter ignored calls for comment, but district spokesman Timothy LeMond assured the news site officials are taking action. He wouldn’t disclose any details or potential discipline.

“The district finds this extremely disappointing and it is not representative of who we are as a school community,” he wrote in an email to Madison365. “We are taking this very seriously and will be looking into this and addressing it as quickly as possible.”

District officials contacted Ivy about the incident, but LeMonds told the Wisconsin State Journal Ringelstetter is still a district employee.

“We are currently investigating the matter and the process of taking appropriate action,” he said Monday.

Union officials did not respond to the Journal’s requests for comment.

Harvey Weinstein is struggling in prison after being diagnosed with coronavirus

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 17:13

Earlier this week, we reported that disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein had tested positive for coronavirus right after starting his 23-year prison sentence for sexual assault.

Now, an update has come in about how Weinstein is faring, and it turns out that he is struggling much more with being in prison than he is with coronavirus.

A source told Fox News that Weinstein has “no symptoms” but “has been in isolation” since leaving the infamous Rikers Island jail in New York City and moving to Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison near Buffalo, New York.

Juda S. Engelmayer, a spokeswoman for Weinstein, 68, said that the former Hollywood mogul is “feeling well” despite being diagnosed with coronavirus. “It’s prison he is having a hard time adjusting to,” she said. This comes after the New York City prison system revealed that at least 19 inmates and 12 staff members have tested positive for coronavirus.

Weinstein was sentenced to serve 23 years earlier this month for raping an actress in 2013 and for forcibly performing oral sex on an assistant in 2006. His lawyers have already said that they plan to appeal the conviction.

After Weinstein’s coronavirus diagnosis was confirmed, actress Rose McGowan, who previously accused him of rape, spoke out to address him, saying, “Dear Harvey, In your darkest hour, repent. And in your lightest moment set yourself free.”

— rose mcgowan (@rosemcgowan) March 22, 2020

While speaking at a sentencing hearing earlier in March, Weinstein addressed his alleged victims. “I really feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deeply in my heart. I will spend my time really caring and really trying to be a better person,” Weinstein said, according to Newsweek. “I’m not going to say these aren’t great people, I had wonderful times with these people, you know. It is just I’m totally confused and I think men are confused about all of these issues.”

WATCH: Another disastrous live-stream—Joe Biden falsely claims he was once ‘a professor’

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 17:01

Either Joe Biden is a pathological liar or his symptoms of dementia are getting the better of him. Here we go again with another Biden whopper or cognitive dream sequence. During yet another disastrous live-stream, Biden made a false claim that after he left the Senate he was a “professor.”

That’s completely untrue. Biden has never taught a class—not once. To merely use his name, University of Pennsylvania paid Biden handsomely. Once again, Biden using his prestige and power to line his pockets.

But Penn probably didn’t pay Biden for what he would bring to the classroom or lecture hall, according to higher-education experts. Instead, the school was likely paying for something less tangible: the prestige of associating with a former vice president and senator who had burnished his reputation as a global figure.

“I know that it sounds like a really big salary for not teaching, and that’s right, but even if he were teaching, that’s not the value that Penn is hoping to get from having him associated with them,” said Temple University’s Douglas Webber, who studies the economics of higher education. “They’re wanting prestige, they’re wanting to brag about this to donors. Penn plays with big money donors, and if this moves the needle even a little bit in terms of getting a big donation, then it’s instantly worth the investment.” [The Philadelphia Inquirer]

You can watch the video below:

So Biden just said "when I left the United States Senate, I became a professor at the University of Pennsylvania."

That's not true. He never taught a class.https://t.co/zaLzTNDXmn pic.twitter.com/e4fZNUlTUM

The media is giving Biden a pass on all of these flubs. Perhaps they can’t keep up with them. Biden needs his own full-time “fact-checker.” But the truth of the matter is that this is all part of the media’s plan to try and prop up this “candidate.”

Markets positive with huge spike in unemployment claims—the reason is logical

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 15:51

I don’t know how high unemployment will get when all of this is said and done, but I’m sure it will drastically go down once people are told they can go back to work and resume their everyday lives.

When manufacturing jobs plummet, the talking heads shrug it off and point out that we are a service economy now. This is a service-job depression.

I’d be surprised if it goes back to where it started. A lot of companies used this opportunity to chop dead wood and or let a “virus” be the bad guy to cut labor costs instead of the company.

MORE NEWS: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Does Not Commit To Voting, Delaying Coronavirus Bill

In China, after a few cities recently opened after the lock-down, employees who headed to work were immediately fired from their jobs as their factories have no orders for producing goods. This just goes to show how quickly the global network has collapsed and how every country is officially in an economic recession. One would be extremely lucky to even keep their job after three months of lock-down unless they are in healthcare or food retailing industries. It is clear that the economic recovery will take longer than the economic shutdown.

Hopefully, things will not turn out like this for the United States.

How Honest Will Claims Be?

My only problem with the coronavirus stimulus bill is it allows people to claim benefits that actually exceeded their normal wages. This will incentivize people to not seek work for as long as possible. I’m also assuming inflation will skyrocket with all this money.

New unemployment claims will set a new record high this week. New unemployment claims will also set a new record high next week. But the market knows this is going to happen. Not looking for a significant market drop today. If so, the market will drop early and buyers will flood in.

On the other hand, companies like Amazon, Target, Price Chopper and Chewy have announced they are hiring hundreds of thousands, so these jobless applicants need to prove they’re actively seeking work before getting any handouts.

Things to Remember

I have to remember that the whole world is slowing, not just the U.S.—this is a global pandemic. It may mean a slower economy for an extended period of time. People will rethink how they are spending. It may not be a quick return to spending.

The government needs to plan an end date to this lock-down and tell everybody that wants to remain in shelter-in-place mode to contact their employer regarding their return to work date. It’s early in the year and they can use their sick time and vacation time to hole-up in the house, terrified. Let the people that want to work do exactly that.

One thing people don’t realize is the market does not care if you’re Left or Right—it focuses on facts and the future, and the reality is that we’re closer to beating this virus than people want you to believe. The market knows this already, well before any of us.

Why does Senate coronavirus stimulus provide $350 million for migrant and refugee assistance?

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 15:37

The Senate coronavirus stimulus bill, passed by a 96-0 vote Wednesday, provides $350 million for “migration and refugee assistance,” leaving at least one member of Congress asking ,”Why?”

It’s difficult to ascertain what migration or refugee assistance would be necessary to combat detrimental economic effects caused by the coronavirus crisis, or why it would require separate categorization from the American people.

It should also be noted that there is nothing in the bill providing assistance to ICE or Border Patrol, two agencies who actually aid in preventing the spread of coronavirus by enforcing border security.

Take Care of Americans First

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) slammed this provision in the bill and asked the obvious question: “Why in the world would we have $350 million for migrants and refugees before we restore the economic condition of every American in our country?” And why would the Republican-led Senate allow something like that through? $350 million could buy a lot of ventilators or hospital supplies.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), in her iteration of the stimulus bill, had requested $300 million “to remain available until expended, for necessary expenses to prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.” So she actually got more in the since-passed bill than she wanted.

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) blasted the numerous frivolous pork items presented by Democrats during the fight over stimulus legislation, accusing Pelosi of “exploiting the COVID-19 public health crisis” and deriding it for having “nothing to do with the public health and economic emergency.”

The State Department last week announced a temporary suspension of refugee re-settlements, and President Trump confirmed a halt to the entry of foreign nationals at both the southern and northern borders. CNN reports that legal and illegal travel at both the northern and southern border has “drastically” dropped “following the Trump administration’s stringent restrictions aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus.” If that is the case, why did Nancy need more money for migrants and refugees, let alone any money at all?

Kathy Griffin blasts Trump over coronavirus after being hospitalized for ‘painful symptoms’

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 15:29

Comedian Kathy Griffin, who once posed with the fake severed head of Donald Trump for a photoshoot, took to Twitter on Wednesday to accuse the president of “lying” about the availability of coronavirus testing.

Griffin, 59, posted two photos that she claimed served as proof that she had been sent “to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER.”

“He’s lying,” Griffin wrote, referring to Trump. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST.”

She posted this alongside a tweet from Trump in which he said the U.S. had done “far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far!”

“In fact,” he added, “over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”

Unfortunately for Griffin, her latest attempt to smear Trump backfired when social media users accused her of either overdramatizing her situation, or of outright lying.

You have no idea what you’ve just done to yourself trying to pull this hoax for attention.

1) You can’t be diagnosed with COVID-19 without having been tested and
2) no hospital is going to put you in a COVID-19 isolation ward without verifying first that you have the virus.

Griffin has been battling a serious case of Trump Derangement Syndrome for years now, so it unfortunately comes as no surprise that she is trying to spin the coronavirus pandemic in a way that would make the president look bad. Given the fact that her career is fledgling, it also comes as no surprise that she is trying to use coronavirus to make herself relevant again.

What would be surprising, however, would be if anyone takes anything this crazed leftwing comic says seriously. If you really are sick, Kathy, perhaps you should focus a little more on getting better, and a little less on your disturbingly deranged Twitter rants.

Yesterday, it was announced that Prince Charles of the British royal family had tested positive for coronavirus.

Now, it’s been reported that Meghan Markle has forbidden her husband Prince Harry from visiting his ill father in the wake of this announcement.

Since testing positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, the 71 year-old Charles has been in self-isolation on his Balmoral estate in Scotland with his wife Camilla.

Meghan and Harry are currently in Canada, where they moved after stepping down as senior members of the royal family earlier this year.

One source told Daily Mail that Meghan has forbidden Harry, 35, from visiting his sick father, saying “under no circumstances, is she okay with him traveling anywhere right now.”

“Meghan said Harry’s been in touch with his dad… Of course, he’s frustrated,” the insider explained. “She said they both are frustrated because they are doers and want to do so much more to help.”

British media correspondent Neil Sean told Fox News that Harry “wanted to return straight away” to the U.K. when he heard of his fathers’ diagnosis, but Charles told him “not to travel,” saying that “he will be fine.”

One positive outcome of this situation is that it has caused Harry and his brother Prince William to come closer together after a months-long rift between the siblings.

“Harry and [his older brother] William are now on speaking terms again and this has healed the rift that was ongoing,” Sean was told by a palace insider.

“Both brothers have linked with up to Charles via video and joked and made him feel happy that they were together again.”

While Charles has tested positive for coronavirus, his wife Camilla tested negative, and Buckingham Palace has confirmed that Queen Elizabeth, 93, remains in good health as well.

“Her Majesty The Queen remains in good health. The Queen last saw the Prince of Wales briefly after the investiture on the morning of the 12th of March and is following all the appropriate advice with regard to her welfare,” a palace spokesman said.

The Queen reportedly is self-isolating at Windsor Castle at this time, and all upcoming royal events have been cancelled.

Trump’s blistering response to CNN: ‘I have no time for stupidity’

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 14:33

President Donald Trump absolutely hammered the media during a coronavirus briefing on Wednesday, then turned to Twitter to unload on CNN in particular, saying, “I have no time for stupidity.”

The verbal onslaught began earlier in the day when he responded to CBS News’ Paula Reid who insinuated the president’s desire to reopen the country and get the economy going might be based on his “political interests.”

“Just so you understand, are you ready?” Trump fired back. “I think there are certain people who would like it to not open so quickly. I think there are certain people that would like it to do financially poorly because they think that would be very good as far as defeating me at the polls.”

Does anybody doubt that at all? Is the media actively cheering on the decimation of the American economy?

Trump Hits Back at ‘Fake News’

Despite Politico reporting that the president was “eager to play nice” at the press briefing, Trump wasn’t about to let Reid’s comments slide. “There are people in your profession that would like that [economic collapse] to happen. I think it’s very clear,” Trump quipped.

“There are people in your profession that write fake news. You do, she does — there are people in your profession that write fake news,” he said, pointing to Reid and another reporter.

“I think it’s very clear that there are people in your profession that write fake news. You do,” President Trump says to CBS News’ @PaulaReidCBS during the White House coronavirus task force update https://t.co/jDTU91Xjk4 pic.twitter.com/mNTGL4IjOZ

RELATED: Trump Hammers Media Over Constant ‘Hatred Of Me’

Why Was Trump Upset?

Was it something specific that set off President Trump? Just one day earlier, Reid’s network spent a mere 10 seconds covering its own poll that showed the majority of Americans support President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis.

Reid also stated in a CBS Evening News segment that Trump’s claim about a new economic depression being worse than the coronavirus itself was an “unsubstantiated claim.” Maybe his reasoning wasn’t specific though. The president recently lashed out at media coverage of his handling of the coronavirus, saying the only thing he sees being produced is “hatred of me.”

I watch and listen to the Fake News, CNN, MSDNC, ABC, NBC, CBS, some of FOX (desperately & foolishly pleading to be politically correct), the @nytimes, & the @washingtonpost, and all I see is hatred of me at any cost. Don’t they understand that they are destroying themselves?

Trump Turns His Ire to CNN

Having thoroughly eviscerated reporters at the briefing, President Trump turned to social media to take a shot at his favorite punching bag: CNN.

He accused the network of making up a story that he was “isolated” in the White House amidst the coronavirus pandemic. The column insinuates Trump’s restlessness is driving his desire to get America working again, not the well-being of the people.

“Trump has wondered aloud to aides when life will again return to normal—not just for the nation, but for himself,” they write. “The slowdown in his own life has led, in part, to Trump’s strong desire to see the guidelines he offered on avoiding crowds and staying at home lifted quickly.”

Trump slammed the piece as “fake news,” noting he’s working around the clock on the crisis, and said he has “no time for stupidity.”

….I have been packed all day with meetings, I have no time for stupidity. We’re working around the clock to KEEP AMERICA SAFE!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 25, 2020

It’s clear Trump is frustrated doing everything he can to stem the tide of sickness caused by the pandemic while the media sees it as an opportunity to divide the nation and run negative coverage of the president.

Radical anti-gun NJ Governor Murphy exploits Chinese coronavirus crisis to ban gun sales

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 14:20

I will never understand the Left’s penchant for disarming people, including those who most need protection. But that’s exactly what the draconian, gun-hating state Governor Phil Murphy is doing in New Jersey.

And, not letting a serious crisis go to waste, he’s shamelessly exploiting a worldwide pandemic —the Chinese coronavirus— to achieve political goals. One thing this crisis is providing, though, is a visceral lesson in just how few cops there are and how quickly our public safety resources become depleted in any crisis.

When this outbreak began, nearly three dozen police officers and firefighters in Kirkland, Washington, where America’s initial Chinese coronavirus exposure and deaths occurred, were quarantined.

Another report has over 150 Detroit police officers under quarantine, 300 self-quarantining, with two staff deaths (a dispatcher and a top police commander) reported. St. Louis County, MO, is considering reactivating recently retired police officers to fill the gaps.

And in Los Angeles, LAPD officers are now on 12-hour shifts and all vacations have been canceled. I’m sure the story is the same in the fire department.

So, what happens when people become more vulnerable to criminals? Democrat politicians work to make their constituents even more vulnerable. Anti-gun rights radical Governor Phil Murphy included gun stores in Executive Order 107, which shuttered “non-essential businesses.” But isn’t he forgetting something important?

Aside from inhibiting his residents’ full rights to self-defense, I’m thinking this amounts to infringing on a little thing called the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights enumerated within the U.S. Constitution. Anti-gun politicians have no qualms about shredding their oaths to protect and defend our founding document.

As a consequence, Bloomberg Law (of all places) is reporting on gun rights groups suing New Jersey in federal court. They are “challenging the state’s temporary shuttering of gun stores…in response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.” The groups argue this action amounts to a total restriction from the people purchasing firearms. They’re right.

From the suit, “The plaintiffs bringing this action do not mean to minimize the severity or urgency of the coronavirus pandemic. However, this emergency (like any other emergency) has its constitutional limits. It would not justify a prior restraint on speech, nor a suspension of the right to vote. Just the same, it does not justify a ban on obtaining guns and ammunition.”

The plaintiffs include a couple of Second Amendment organizations, a gun store, and an individual who wants to purchase a firearm “in case the pandemic stops the government from providing emergency services…” His concern is a lesson for every American who doesn’t understand exactly what the Second Amendment provides for us.

Rob Reiner claims President Trump ‘is causing people in NY to die’

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 14:04

Hollywood legend Rob Reiner baselessly claimed that President Donald Trump is responsible for lives being lost in the state of New York.

“There’s no other way to put this: Donald Trump is causing people in NY to DIE,” tweeted Reiner, whose best-known role is that of a character nicknamed “Meathead.”

Other than hatred of the president, it is unclear what motivated Reiner to make such a crass accusation.

Reiner Unhinged

The famed Hollywood actor and director has been particularly unhinged when it comes to Trump’s handling of the coronavirus crisis. Reiner is perpetually referring to the president as incompetent or responsible for the lives lost due to the pandemic.

Responding to President Trump expressing the difficulties in balancing the economic tragedy befalling the country and the coronavirus itself, Reiner accused him of being selfish. “It’s no surprise that this President only cares about himself. But goddamn, people are dying,” he wrote. “If you can’t be human, get the **** out of the way and let people who are take over.”

There’s no other way to put this: Donald Trump is causing people in NY to DIE.

Nobody Blames Cuomo

Reiner, who was born in New York City, has offered no blame for Democrat Governor Andrew Cuomo. Nor has anybody in the media. In fact, the opposite has happened—Cuomo is being hailed as a conquering hero for saving New York.

Think about that for a minute. Imagine if President Trump were actually the governor of the Empire State right now. A state which has been the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic, accounting for over 30,000 cases and nearly 300 deaths. Do you think for a minute that Trump would be heralded as a voice of leadership and an example of preparedness? Of course not—he’d still be blamed for people dying. So…Cuomo skates.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo AGAIN praises @realDonaldTrump’s actions to combat the Chinese Virus:

Americans Disagree

Speaking of Cuomo, the New York Democrat governor seems to disagree with Reiner, having almost on a daily basis praised the president for the actions he’s taken to help combat the virus.

Very different tone from Cuomo today. He says Trump and his team are using the Defense Production Act “well” as a leverage tool to ramp up medical supply production.

— Nick Reisman (@NickReisman) March 25, 2020

“His team is on it. They’ve been responsive,” Cuomo said at a press conference last week. “I want to say thank you.” Meanwhile, Trump’s approval rating on handling the coronavirus crisis has been skyrocketing.

60 percent approval in Gallup Poll!

Despite a relentlessly negative media and Democrats who do nothing but obstruct, Americans can see that @realDonaldTrump is out front and leading us through this crisis. https://t.co/bVOgyhWfow

It’d be difficult to imagine the American people would be so approving if they really thought, like Reiner, that President Trump was responsible for lives lost.

Trump’s daily briefings score huge ratings—His coronavirus town hall ‘most watched in cable history’

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 12:35

Democrats absolutely hate the idea that President Donald Trump is in front of the cameras every single day. Why? Because the American people are getting to know their president and they’re seeing that he is not this awful monster that for years the fake news media has made him out to be.

Thanks to his amazing leadership, President Trump’s approval ratings are soaring—60% of Americans approve of how he’s handling the COVID-19 crisis.

MORE NEWS: Trump’s Reaction to Mitt Romney’s Negative Coronavirus Test Sets the Internet Ablaze

His daily briefings are a ratings bonanza, which you know is infuriating the Democrats who are just sacked on the sidelines and seething mad.

The New York Times reluctantly admitted on Wednesday that the president’s daily coronavirus updates are garnering an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, adding, “roughly the viewership of the season finale of ‘The Bachelor.’”

The Times moaned, “And the numbers are continuing to rise, driven by intense concern about the virus and the housebound status of millions of Americans who are practicing social distancing. On Monday, nearly 12.2 million people watched Mr. Trump’s briefing on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, according to Nielsen — ‘Monday Night Football’ numbers. Millions more are watching on ABC, CBS, NBC and online streaming sites.” [Daily Wire]

It’s not just daily briefings that are garnering him a steady stream of followers. President Trump held a “Coronavirus town hall” where he sat down with Fox News‘ Bill Hemmer to discuss his response plan. It was the most-watched.

A virtual town hall hosted by Fox News on Tuesday set a record as the most-watched town hall in cable news history with an average of 4.4 million viewers, the network announced Wednesday.

Trump and members of the White House coronavirus task force sat in the Rose Garden for the two-hour town hall, which began at noon and was moderated by Fox’s Harris Faulkner and Bill Hemmer.

Hemmer was present with Trump and his task force, who answered questions submitted by people via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. [The Hill]

The American people appreciate the “hands-on” approach and leadership that President Trump is providing. His briefings are hopeful and helpful and sometimes filled with sass when Trump goes against the nasty fake news media.

Opinion: It shouldn’t take 880-page Senate bill to address non-working Americans during coronavirus pandemic

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 10:17

Only time will tell if the coronavirus relief bill is bad or not. With it being over two trillion dollars —the surreal nature of trillions of dollars boggles the mind— those of you who believe President Donald Trump is an inerrant savior of mankind need to keep focused. I understand your wanting to shield him from the Left and their hate. We voted for him and want him to do good.

I am a staunch Trump supporter, but he is capable of mistakes and blind spots. I am not even talking about the small ones because, again, people make mistakes. This bill looks like Porkulus disguised as a “relief” package.

If you listen to my podcast, you know I have always been against these massive spending bills. I continued to call out the Republicans for passing two Omnibus spending bills roughly valued close to three trillion dollars within 10 months of President Trump’s first term. The reason they provided for that was to help our military.

The fact is this is the kind of spending that’s ruining our country, and the record revenues we’re all sending to the federal government to paper-over that massive deficit just came to a screeching halt. But guess what didn’t? The ballooning interest payment on the exploding debt. That keeps rising higher than a Johns Hopkins coronavirus curve, and we aren’t squashing the peak—we’re extending it.

Sorry, boomers, your future social security payments just took a haircut. And since all those nice millennials don’t believe they’ll ever see a dime of social security, do you think the next wave of nice young politicians are going to let you have yours? Hint: it doesn’t look affirmative. Read the full Senate bill.

People are wondering when they will get their next paycheck. And our legislators, instead of working on alleviating some of the sufferings, have decided that working on their shopping wish-list and looking at who to give money to is much more paramount. Their favorite organizations and pet projects were/are far more important.

Guess this shines a light on their actual priorities. The American people who are laid off right now or the businesses that will probably wind up the closing are not on their wish-list.

I voted for you, Mr. President, and damn proud of it. But for the love of God, please veto this monstrosity of a bill (Cares Act) that the Senate has rushed through. Please read it to the American people and explain to them why you will veto this. We the People are tired of this constant rush to purportedly favor the American people…only to be yanked down by political games played in the legislative body.

For many years, politicians have always promised us the world and only delivered a tiny fraction of those promises, always pretending to “represent” us. But you, Mr. President, you were different, and this is why the American people voted for you. You asked us to take a chance, and we did! So now I’m asking you to take a chance and trust the American people who put you in office the first time and those who know that we will be there the second time.

You’re a good man, sir; even I know you cannot morally sign this Act. Mr. President, we have your back, I promise you!

CNN’s Jake Tapper says unknown how many lives affected by Trump’s ‘many lies’

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 06:47

CNN pundit Jake Tapper said Wednesday that President Donald Trump was downplaying the coronavirus outbreak with “many lies” while also giving the public a false sense of security.

On his CNN show “The Lead,” Tapper said, “As we pass 800 deaths and more than 61,000 confirmed coronavirus cases in this country, it is worth remembering what President Trump said almost one month ago today.”

Tapper featured a clip from February 26, in which Trump said, “When you have 15 people, and a 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that is a pretty good job we’ve done.”

Tapper continued: “Tomorrow will be the one month anniversary of that statement from the president. That was clearly a false sense of security he was providing the nation. In keeping with the many lies he has told the nation in order to downplay the virus and its risk. And oversell the Trump administration response with more than 61,000 cases in the U.S.—far more than 15, far more than zero.”

“There is no way of knowing how many lives were affected by that false sense of security that the president projected,” Tapper insisted.

Pelosi earlier this week actually prevented the bill from passing when she had a last-minute “wish list,” filled with all sorts of outlandish demands.

According to Ben Williamson, the chief of staff for Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Pelosi returned to Washington, D.C., on Sunday with a wish list of sudden demands, striking down the bipartisan agreement made by the Senate.

“Senate spends all weekend negotiating a bipartisan deal. Agreement reached. Pelosi flies in from California, whips out her unrelated ‘wishlist,’ and says no. Senate Democrats then vote against proceeding on a bill they negotiated. Jaw dropping,” Williamson explained.  [The Blaze]

MyPillow steps up to the plate to help Trump with virus, announces they will be manufacturing masks

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 03:20

Companies across the U.S. are pulling up their bootstraps and getting to work to help our country get through coronavirus.

Two big companies, IBM and Honeywell, both announced they’ll be stepping up and helping with COVID-19:

IBM and Honeywell both made announcements saying they are investing in plans to help mitigate the crisis, and in Honeywell’s case, the company will produce extra surgical masks.

“We are honored to support the U.S. government’s efforts to protect Americans with personal protective equipment made right here in the United States,” Honeywell’s CEO said in a statement. “Our Rhode Island facility already produces industry-leading safety gear and soon will play a critical role in supplying the Strategic National Stockpile with N95 masks.” [Washington Examiner]

Now MyPillow, like Honeywell, is helping in the efforts by manufacturing masks for hospitals across the country.

Minnesota pillow manufacturer MyPillow announced Tuesday it would make face masks to help hospitals combat the growing coronavirus pandemic.

“MyPillow is excited to announce that we are now manufacturing face masks for hospitals across the country!” the company posted on Twitter to its almost 20,000 followers.

Healthcare professionals have requested help in supplying N95 respirator masks, which provide a more snug fit and better protection than typical surgical masks. It’s unclear which masks specifically will be produced by MyPillow.

Private sector companies across the country, encouraged by the Trump administration, have joined the fight against the coronavirus by donating time, money, and other resources to help short-handed hospitals. [Washington Examiner]

This great to see a company with a CEO who is a huge Trump supporter, really step up to the plate and help America get back on its feet.

It’s also a brilliant move by Trump to give these companies incentive to not only provide necessary products for our country, but also put more Americans back to work.

UN chief asks terrorists and dictators to take a time-out during pandemic

Thu, 03/26/2020 - 01:54

This is one of those stories that will make you laugh out loud. Apparently the United Nations chief wants a cease-fire regarding all the armed conflict going on in the world so that we can all fight the pandemic. United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said, “It is time to put armed conflict on lock-down and focus together on the true fight of our lives.” Really? So you think that’s going to work?

I don’t think that the United Nations understands that these are the kind of moments when the despots and tyrants take advantage of the situation. I’m actually surprised that they haven’t already done something in some sort of big way—their usual brand of barbarism.

I’m pretty sure that Iran, China and Russia probably have plans in the works to get what they want in the near future, whether it’s political, economical or strategic to acquire more land, money or power. And if things get worse, it’ll be country against country because resources will be scarce.

Does the UN really think that evil people have any qualms about being evil just because people are dying from a coronavirus? It’s always been survival of the fittest and if someone has an edge, they will use it.

Case in point: the tyrant Democrats in America are already taking advantage of the pandemic.

The government is supposed to be passing legislation to help with the pandemic and give financial relief to Americans. But the Democrats have all kinds of demands. They have put things in the legislation that they have wanted to pass for years. Decades. Things that have nothing to do with the pandemic. They want early voting, same-day voter registration in all states, tax credits for windmills and solar panels, student debt bailouts and more.

They think the Republicans will cave. And the Republicans will cave to some extent. They always do. So let’s not kid ourselves. A lot of what the Democrats want will get passed in the bill. How much? We won’t know until the final bill comes out. And then we will see how truly disgusting these tyrants are. Authoritarian. Bullies. Stalinists. Use any word you want—they’re all befitting.

“Never let a serious crisis go to waste” is their mantra…and it’s never been more true than right now. So if the Democrats can’t be restrained to do the right thing, I really doubt that North Korea, the Taliban, the Palestinians and al-Qaeda are going to take a vacation and play nice.
