Media Continuing to Obsess Over Unnamed and Conveniently Anonymous "Person at the White House" Using Term "Kung Flu"

Look, fat: Shut the fuck up.

I'm glad to see the media is taking the virus they've panicked the country over very, very seriously.

I keep saying this, but I'll say it again:

Trump should ban any reporter who is not a medical or scientific reporter from these briefings, or at least only pick a couple of political reporters at the end of the briefing, insisting that only real medical/science reporters will get to ask questions generally.

And he should specifically say, "Now we're turning to the political reporters" -- with a sneer -- when he turns to them.

Name them and shame them.

The assumptions on deaths without quarantine are in fact very alarming. 2,200,000 deaths if we all took no functional precautions beyond hand washing.

Here's the Imperial College Wuhan report:

158 From a piece in the Washington Post by Marc Thiessen:

"We are in the midst of a pandemic lockdown today because the Chinese Communist regime cared more about suppressing information than suppressing a virus. Doctors in Wuhan knew in December that the coronavirus was capable of human-to-human transmission because medical workers were getting sick. But as late as Jan. 15, the head of China's Center for Disease Control and Prevention declared on state television that "the risk of human-to-human transmission is low." On Jan. 18, weeks after President Xi Jinping had taken charge of the response, authorities allowed a Lunar New Year banquet to go forward in Wuhan where tens of thousands of families shared food -- and then let millions travel out of Wuhan, allowing the disease to spread across the world. It was not until Jan. 23 that the Chinese government enacted a quarantine in Wuhan.

If the regime had taken action as soon as human-to-human transmission was detected, it might have contained the virus and prevented a global pandemic. Instead, Chinese officials punished doctors for trying to warn the public and suppressed information that might have saved lives. According to the Times of London, Chinese doctors who had identified the pathogen in early December received a gag order from China's National Health Commission with instructions to stop tests, destroy samples and suppress the news."

There's more, but this is a CHINESE pandemic, started in China by the Chinese, and Trump should keep saying it loud and often. Fuck these media whores trying to cover for the criminally negligent CHINESE government!

221 I had heard too that it escaped from their lab but two different stories are out there. One that the bats were released to the food chain after the lab was done with them and the second one was a lab worker got bit by a bat at the lab and then went out into Wuhan and unfortunately spread the virus without knowing it. Not sure which one is true, but I think nuking them all from the air might be the best solution to fixing the problem.

Yesterday, Dr. Reis? the blond epidemiologist on Trump's corona virus panel said( and was reiterated by Fauci later) that models do NOT take into account mediation factors being placed. In other words, they look at scenarios as if nothing is done to stop a virus spread. And they are data oriented as the input person wishes.
She said she loves models because it's one of her interests, but the public needs to understand they aren't real life.

I think once it's clear that we have avoided/it simply won't transpire/whatever the situation where there will not be overwhelmed ICUs, you'll see dismantling of the measures quickly begin.

If I could math, I would have been a doctor.

My point isn't really whether the model is correct, ultimately, just that it is frightening our overlords, and so we are all stuck hanging around doing nothing. And the market is tanking below 19,000 (for half a second).

This response is as unsustainable as the worst case scenarios of the disease.

Coincidence? I think not number one son.

Also, consider that in the beginning of the trade war, with US, the swine flu broke out amongst the Chinese pork herds. Coincidence - possibly not.

Are the US and China in the middle of a biological war and, if so, who fired the first shot?

Will this all get out of hand and we'll be lucky to live through it? Well, it is already out of hand. The rest remains to be seen.

291 Ah Sooooo

The Biological Weapons lab in Wuhan was working on corona virus.

And the never before seen virus, with gain of function in transmissibility human to human rivaling measles, was coincidentally ground zero in Wuhan.

Coincidence? I think not number one son.

Also, consider that in the beginning of the trade war, with US, the swine flu broke out amongst the Chinese pork herds. Coincidence - possibly not.

Are the US and China in the middle of a biological war and, if so, who fired the first shot?

Will this all get out of hand and we'll be lucky to live through it? Well, it is already out of hand. The rest remains to be seen.

25% of the olds will die even in best-case scenario (assuming the paper is correct--big assumption). So, if you're an olds (and I'm getting up there, so it's not just demographic warfare here), which do you rather have?

Your entire financial foundation wiped out and you have what amounts to a 1 in 4 chance at living through, or keeping something to live off of if you survive (or pass along if not) with a 50-50 shot of kicking the bucket?

Setting aside the validity of the paper (since it is what our "betters" are working off of), what's the right policy?

Posted by: Charlie Chan at March 18, 2020 03:28 PM (ZuGkg)

OANN did a 30 minute special with four experts on China's govt, bioresearch labs. One was Gordon Chang. The special explained that bioweapon labs have an interest and all of them, including ours , have experimented with creating a way for virus' to become supervirulent. They had a term for it, which escapes me at the moment. The US govt. put a moratorium for a number of years on our labs conducting these kinds of experiments because of the risk of creating pandemics. We have currently lifted that moratorium, and OANN did not know if we are currently conducting such experiments, but of course, we do not know publicly if China has continued to experiment.

My educated guess is yes,, and this is an escaped virus. Or a deliberate one, set loose via the experimental animals sold to a meat market that many bioresearchers are claiming was the likely route.

NO less than 4-5 older (over 70 + years) persons were at the store (which had about 100 people shopping) to get "items." THESE are the people who should be isolating themselves so they don't contract this disease and make ER's and hospitals overburdened. Seriously, if you are an older person, PLEASE Isolate yourself so we can stop this madness. I will go to the store for you. I already did this for my neighbor.

Call things what they are, unless you have underlying, partisan political considerations.

Referring to it as Wuhan or Chinese Coronavirus is accurate.

Arguing it piques PRC and their control of medical supplies plays right into Communists' hands.

Posted by: Sponge at March 18, 2020 03:42 PM (IXZGh)

393 So - here's mystery. Let's see if you can solve it.

NBC and MSM are blaring out how six members of one family in NJ came down with COVID-19, and now one of the them has died. I read the story and was interested in all the info that the reporters, in their OH NOES breathlessness left out.

Apparently the Fusco and Fusco-Jackson family knew a certain Mr. Brennan who was the "first" to supposedly catch COVID-19 in NJ and, because he was 69 and had diabetes and emphysema - succumbed very quickly. The head NJ Medical Dr in charge of COVID-19 says the poor man did not travel overseas - he just simply got it - who knows, right?

But the Fusco and Fusco-Jackson family were associated with him and recently, get this had a 19 person family reunion, so says, ahem, their Italian lawyer...but where did they have that reunion, you ask? No one is saying, and reporters seem uncurious of course, but I think more than likely in the home country - that is, in Italy. And, since poor Mr Brennan had not been out of the country - more than likely they gave it to him - at least that's where this trail leads.

The chief medical Dr in NJ had one more thing to add, by the way...the Fusco and Fusco-Jackson family did not get Coronavirus from community spread...meaning from someone else in NJ. Now you know the rest of the story...thanks NBC for really going the extra yard to tease this out. Your welcome.

From the time this came out in what? Late January? February? The conspiracy sites were filled with info about the lab at Wuhan. They were working on bats and coronavirus; they seem to be immune. And then... wow, a virus that supposedly originated in bats and is a coronavirus.

Plus... patient zero in china did NOT go to the wet market. Just for the record.

------

MY theory is that the Chinese moved VERY aggressively to protect their production assets. Wuhan is factory central in China. They bulldozed neighborhoods, welded people in their homes, shot the the truly resistant.

WE interpreted that as HOLY SHIT THE CHINESE ARE TERRIFIED OF THIS VIRUS. They were terrified of losing production contracts. This isnt Ebola. The Chinese govet doesnt give two shits about its populace.

The fact that we're shooting ourselves in the nuts and tanking our economies doesnt bother the Chinese in the least.

The fact that afterwards Globalists and Democrats figured out they could use this as obedience training for the masses is an unolanned feature.

Posted by: Caliban


Not exactly. They are predicting 2.2 mil deaths if nothing is done to limit contact between people, including keeping everything open. Most of those deaths come from a lack of critical care beds. Since only 5% of everyone younger than 50 would need critical care in the first place, that puts most of the infected over 50 at risk, with those over 70 at extreme risk of death absent critical care beds.

I believe they use an 80+% infection rate for all scenarios, since the WuFlu is so contagious.

WE interpreted that as HOLY SHIT THE CHINESE ARE TERRIFIED OF THIS VIRUS. They were terrified of losing production contracts. This isnt Ebola. The Chinese govet doesnt give two shits about its populace.

The fact that we're shooting ourselves in the nuts and tanking our economies doesnt bother the Chinese in the least.

The fact that afterwards Globalists and Democrats figured out they could use this as obedience training for the masses is an unolanned feature.

My theory is that if you and I know that Chicoms are f'in liars who lie, cover-up and cheat, then Trump sure does and our assets sure do. That is why there was no movement in January, February. I think data from Korea, Taiwan and Italy is what gave the real jolt. Korea did something, angel of death passed them by for the most part. Italy did not, and now they are short on caskets.

Two things, here:

1.) How could the Pentagon let this happen? Shameful.

2.) How can the President address the shortages? Can his civilian task force step up? I don't know how these kinds of emergency appropriations work, but it needs taken care of immediately. It's not Trump's job to hurl cash at every Tom, Dick, and Harry in the US. But it is his job to hurl it at the Army.

If we are talking about stimulus payments to YD for no reason, while troops can't wipe their asses except for with a pinecone, we're DOING IT WRONG.

The Chinese govt. is so SENSITIVE to simple honest descriptions of their monkeyshines and failures. But in terms of how they speak and act toward others, they're about as as sensitive as a god damn toilet seat. They desire to impose on the world the same Bizzaro World restrictions they inflict on the denizens of their police state.

My own assumtion is that more or less everyone will get it, but that it will be a nothingburger for almost everyone.

It will be really bad for most of the rest who get it and get medical attention, and a quick death for a few of the serious cases and those who cannot get medical attention.

So, if that is the case, do we shut down the entire country and turn the economy back to the 1970s?

It's a very powerful Federal law that allows the President to force industry to expand domestic production, requisition property, control consumer credit, and allocate resources. If used right we can onshore manufacturing outsourced to China and expropriate property held by China and Chinese citizens, in addition to overwhelming production priority being given to domestic medical supplies.

615 I really can't stay
(but baby there's COVID outside)
I've got to go away
(but baby there's COVID outside)
This evening has been
(been hoping that you'd drop in)
So very nice
(I'll hold your hands, my latex gloves are nice)
My mother will start to worry
(Beautiful, what's your hurry?)
My father will be pacing the floor
(I've got TP stacked from ceiling to floor)
So really I'd better scurry
(Beautiful please don't hurry)
But maybe just a half a drink more
(Put some Netflix on while I pour)
We must 'shelter in place'?
(Your eyes are like starlight now)
To break this spell
(I'll take you temperature - you look swell)
I ought to say 'no no no sir'
(Mind if I move in closer?)
At least I'm gonna say that I tried
(What's the sense in hurtin' my pride)
I really can't stay
(Oh baby, don't hold out)

Baby there's COVID outside

Posted by: grammie winger at March 18, 2020 03:54 PM (lwiT4)

It's a very powerful Federal law that allows the President to force industry to expand domestic production, requisition property, control consumer credit, and allocate resources. If used right we can onshore manufacturing outsourced to China and expropriate property held by China and Chinese citizens, in addition to overwhelming production priority being given to domestic medical supplies.

There was no more oh I'm going to crap myself because Foreman just looked at me sideways.

Like, have you ever seen the Tyson-Spinks fight? Spinks is beat before he gets in the ring. The look on his face is just please limit the damage and let the check clear.

Tyson, Liston, and Foreman all had that and when they lost it they never got it back.

What Frazier had, and this is why I believe that he literally killed Ali in slow motion, is that he literally didn't care how hard or how often he got hit in the head.

I used to like to go to work but they shut it down
I got a right to go to work but there's no work here to be found
Yes and they say we're gonna have to pay what's owed
We're gonna have to reap from some seed that's been sowed
And the birds up on the wires and the telegraph poles
They can always fly away from this rain and this cold
You can hear them singing out their telegraph code
All the way down the telegraph road

You know I'd sooner forget but I remember those nights
When life was just a bet on a race between the lights
You had your head on my shoulder you had your hand in my hair
Now you act a little colder like you don't seem to care
But believe in me baby and I'll take you away
From out of this darkness and into the day
From these rivers of headlights these rivers of rain
From the anger that lives on the streets with these names
'Cos I've run every red light on memory lane
I've seen desperation explode into flames
And I don't want to see it again...

From all of these signs saying sorry but we're closed
All the way down the telegraph road
