Rachel Maddow: There Is No Way the Navy Hospital Ships Will be in NYC and LA in a Week. "That's Just Nonsense."
Reality: One Week Later, the USS Comfort and Mercy Arrive in NYC and LA

As JackStraw said: "I've never seen another profession where people can be so consistently wrong and not only keep their jobs but get hugely rewarded."

The last thanks to LASue.

On the other coast, the "leadership" there appeared appreciative but you know that they intend to dump the non-paying indigents on board that ship. It will be filled with druggies, illegal aliens and welfare deadbeats in short order.

47 I believe the temporary hospitals being set up, like at Javits Center, are more like specialized clinics - for the specific purpose of caring for COVID patients, whose needs are specific.

Unless I have it backwards, and they'll be moving "general population" patients to the temporary hospitals to make the regular ones COVID-only - but that doesn't make sense obviously.

And NGU didn't answer - that I saw - my question about the hospital ships being for non-COVID patients, to free up hospital room to deal with the crisis, but a commenter said it was the case.

64 I have a sailboat. New York is two to three days away by wind power alone from the Chesapeake Bay. It always has been. The Comfort is a tad faster than a sailboat and needs about a day. The big delay was not the Comfort (loaded and ready to deploy 24/7/365 in an emergency), it was prepping a dock in a city that is no longer really the great port it once was.

Trump has done a great job of getting the private sector involved and producing. It's pretty amazing.

But maybe even more amazing is he is making government work. Not flawlessly but working better than I can ever remember seeing it work.

They are slashing red tape and mobilizing in an amazing fashion, coordinating between multiple agencies, the private sector and the states and getting stuff done at a dizzying pace.

I'm sure it's a total coincidence that Lady Gaga has a new CD coming out any day now. No cross-branding/PR here, you guyz.

I mean a "if you done fucked up you're out of a job, Bob" sort of anal probe.

CDC, FDA, NIH, all of them who've had anything whatsoever to do with the Chinavirus response.

Give it to a select commission of hardass private sector auditors/accounting firms, and tell them to seek and destroy. Maybe make it a bounty system - - they get paid by the scalp, and the GS rating of those they catch red-handed.

It's what they do. Those f*ckers need to be made to pay in the worst way for doing this.

They could have quarantined Wuhan once they saw what was happening there, but they made a calculated choice to allow infected Chinese to get on flights and come here (and other places), because they wanted to damage us.

We need to recognize that this is war and they are the enemy, and we need to treat them like the enemy they are.

362 During dinner, my husband informed me that his prog NYC sister emailed him about how terrible PDT is handling the virus and we "can all learn lessons by how Mayor DeBlasio and our wonderful governor are handling this crisis."

I'm completely shocked that he fired back at her what a crock of bullshit she was spewing.


Here we are, hoping my husband doesn't have to layoff his employees, and his idiot big sis who lives off a VERY nice NYC pension plan, and she's married to a well-off prog dentist with bad teeth, lecturing the rest of us rubes.


I told him I would have told her to get fucked. But that's just me.

ACLU is less than worthless, but this kind of thing is a useful indicator for just how over the line certain things are, and "red flag" laws seem like a law school exercise (not a very sophisticated one) to illustrate the kinds of laws that completely verboten under our legal system and constitution.

And when Trump stopped flights of virus-infected Chinese from coming into the U.S., they called him a raaaaaaacist and said he was over-reacting.

Then they repeated that idiot deBlasio's advice to go out and hug a random Chinese person, to prove they weren't raaaaaacist or afraid of the virus themselves, because the virus really wasn't very contagious!

The written word can be very deceiving. I've met two judges whose writing is larger than life. Their opinions give the impression of these very powerful, outspoken, charismatic figures. In person, they were both modest and church-mouse quiet. It's interesting how quiet some people can be compared to their writings. I think online personas often work similarly.

Trump has done a great job of getting the private sector involved and producing. It's pretty amazing.

But maybe even more amazing is he is making government work. Not flawlessly but working better than I can ever remember seeing it work.

They are slashing red tape and mobilizing in an amazing fashion, coordinating between multiple agencies, the private sector and the states and getting stuff done at a dizzying pace.

We know the Chinese in the Wuhan lab were working for years on modifying bat viruses that could infect humans using ACE2 receptors. Does anybody really believe that it is just some random coincidence that we now have a global pandemic, that started in Wuhan, caused by a bat virus that uses ACE2 receptors to infect humans?

The Chinese created this virus, they let it get loose in Wuhan (whether deliberately or not doesn't matter), and once they knew it was in the population in Wuhan and knew how contagious it was, they lied to the world about it, and then they deliberately allowed infected Chinese to leave Wuhan and fly all around the world.

People will not vote for Trump again. Even a decent amount who say they approve of the job he's doing. His act wore thin and now he doesn't have a roaring economy to try and overwhelm his weaknesses and personal unpopularity.

707 Who the hell is this genius?

Its not even good trolling, its lame, rehashing the same old memes and oblivious to realty.

Like comparing a Trump rally to whatever the Left slaps together.

What is important, and what the Left can never understand is the emotion of happiness and contentment.

They are hate filled, bitter and depressing at the atomic level. So go to their rallies (such as they are) and you see hate, go to a Trump rally and you people who are upbeat, enlightened, happy, confident, filled with joy.

The Left doesn't even have the vocabulary to express these ideas or even contemplate them.

No one pays to have someone speak to you who brings nihilism, despair and anger. The top earners and draws are the Zig Ziglars of this world who bring promise with actual substance supporting it.

The point being, the worse it gets, the more Trump's bright message is appealing, in contrast to the fear, uncertainty, hate and bitterness that is churned out in industrial quantities by Democrats, media, entertainment and academics.

The troll is thoroughly incapable of understanding this post.

If you want to see the latest model predictions for the whole country and your state in particular, go here:

https://covid19.healthdata.org/projections

You'll note the type SIR-model like solution curves for the death rates. Fast ramp-up, peak, then slower drop off with long tail. Same basic curve for hospitalization and ICU needs.

Total death follow curve asymptotically approaching total deaths.

Note the peaks, and when they occur. You can follow your own numbers and see how well the models track.

They don't ignore it, they are not on our side.

They actively seek to strengthen China and weaken the US. This has been known since Clinton traded campaign cash for missile guidance technology. Then 'W' doubled down and strapped a JATO pack to tech and jobs leaving the US to go to the Communist Chinese.

There is a reason why Team Blue has worked hard to make the US as non-competitive as possible. This is why they support the New Green Deal - because they want to finish off the US as an economic power.

As to the mental health struggles:

A history of depression, anxiety, anger, alcohol abuse. (She denied the alcohol abuse)


"I am on three sleeping pills at night so that I don't have nightmares and so that I can sleep."

The sleeping pills - melatonin, Ambien, Valium (all at once )

After her car got towed at work:

"I literally had a breakdown in front of the whole cafeteria..."

"an actual physical, mental meltdown"

"I went nuts... I had a total breakdown."

Did you tell your doctor in 2012 that you wanted a divorce?

"Probably. I'm furious all the time."

Maybe. I certainly understand the sentiment and the will to do it. But we frankly may not have the expertise anymore to do what we should do....right away. It may take a while to re-build that expertise and knowledge to make the things we should and need to do right here.

Plus, the fun-seeking lawyers have made it hard on pharma manufacturing here by sueing them over any problems that come from administration.

For every million people (children) innoculated with the live (Weakened) polio vaccine, 5-10 kids every year would actually get polio from the weakened vaccine that had the live virus. So the vaccine makers eventually got sued out of existence in the US, and this was driven offshore. Stuff like that.

769 Thanks for that. As has been noted before, a big problem with looking at National numbers is that those are just the sum of many county by county and city by city curves. So the overall average doesn't tell us much that's useful.

They only broke out the data from the state level to the county level less than a week ago. Even then it is chock full of incompetence and fraud.

For example, the most populous county in NYC, Kings, has ZERO confirmed, dead or recovered. Are those numbers distributed to the surrounding counties or are the people in Brooklyn super beings?

New Jersey lists over 4200+ cases as "Unassigned". Its difficult to know if that includes foreigners, New Jersey residents or New York residents?

They also play tricks with key-values so that is particularly difficult to collate and analyze the data over time.

There isn't even any guidance on comorbidity. Unlike being struck by lightning or getting killed by a drunk illegal alien driver, CoViD-19 is reported to be found in a sizeable number of people who have others things that would end up killing them a week or so later.

Sadly, the Time Teams held in the US showed the difference between the UK and US - tons of crap all over there, virtually nothing in the ground here. Much larger land, few results thus US archeologists are pretty much starving for information.

Now, paleontology is big time here - Dinos, corals, trilobites pretty much anywhere in the land.

817 I worked on the dig when they put the second power house in at North Bonneville WA. I did a six foot dry hole. When you do a big project like that dam, a certain percentage goes to digs.

They are likely high-balling. In those projection graphs, note the range. They want to use the upper numbers to keep the fear of God in people, I'm assuming. If you take the upper end of the range, you get on the order of 140K deaths for the whole country. Low end is about $40K.

They are running models all over the country. Every hospital system is running their own to assess their own needs, and probably looking at many different such models as well.

I've often wondered how many young kids were inspired to study archeology after Raiders of The Lost Ark.
Posted by: ShainS at March 30, 2020 09:30 PM (WqPYg)


who actually would want to be a Cultural Resource Management archeologist?

Ooooh! Walmart had hired Poors Construction and Paving to put in an extended parking lot in this field! Lets do a historical map search, surface survey and fifteen test pits and a diagonal trench to see if there is anything to save in the next two weeks!

I. Am. On. This!

Well, for SC here, they are predicting the peak will occur a bit later than the national average, late April to May, with a peak death rate of 32 per day, (range 22 -45), and a total of a little over 1000 for the whole state.

Numbers are largely garbage, guesses and estimations.


You can go to the CDC's own website that tracks influenza statistics.

https://tinyurl.com/y3tf8ebl


For instance, they report on the deaths from the Flu in the 2017-2018 as being in the 60k range, but that was a revisment down from 80K as new "information" and "modeling" came in.


They do not scour the country and tabulate anything, it's all based on anecdotal data and molding.


The Covid models show that by April 1st there should be 4600 death's, currently there are 3100 listed Covid deaths, so for the model to be correct 1500 deaths need to occur in the next two days.


It's not going to happen.


This seems to be one giant through the looking glass version of The Truman Show.


I wonder who the Ed Harris character is in this timeline?

IIRC, a torpedo hit dislodged the port outer propeller shaft, and instead of spinning true, the bent shaft spun wildly, ripping open a lot of the after bottom of the ship causing flooding that was not containable.



Though in hindsight Prince of Wales and Repulse should have withdrawn to Trincommalee or to Sydney. They were in Singapore as a "show the flag" and once the Japanese began moving it should have been obvious that their purpose at Singapore had failed and it was time to get the valuable heavy ships out and away.

Hi again, Mr. President! That clip was from March 20, after you said the ship would be in New York harbor by last week. The ship was not in New York last week -- which is what I said on my show.

You were wrong about it.

No hard feelings. Everyone's glad it's there now. But...

you really have been terrible about communicating true, factual information to the public in this crisis. Please let the experts and scientists speak instead.

And please nationalize the supply chain for critical medical supplies. Thanks for watching, Mr. President.

929 Adding up the US deaths so far I see we are generally keeping to around 1.7% mortality. Applying that rule of thumb to other countries would have meant lots fewer deaths, roughly 1,750 in Italy for example. Instead they have reported 11, 591 dead. Some of that excess is surely a result of demographics and general health conditions, but a lot of it is socialist medical system.
When this is all said and done, we will be able to see once and for all how many people socialism kills in this pandemic.
