Andrew Cuomo Flacks for the Chinese Communist Party, Repeatedly Calling Wuhan Virus "The European Virus"

It's not racist to blame Europeans for things, I guess!



This is no slip -- this is a coordinated campaign. The leftwing media is a junior partner of the Chinese Communist Party, and of course the Democrat Wall Street/corporate types are fleecing the country by selling out to China.

CNBC is even publishing Chinese Communist Party propaganda as "news"!

24 NBC are contemptible.

Again, with the full knowledge that this won't matter to cable news, the FCC needs to play hardball with the big networks. Send a letter to every affiliate informing them that they are not operating in the public interest due to their various network parents' ties to the Chinese government. Tell them that their broadcast licenses are suspended in seven days unless they disaffiliate.

The networks are useless without their affiliates. Go after them.

PROGDA.

Progda. Not Pravda, the mid-20th century Soviet news organization, but Progda, short for PROGressive propaganDA.


I shouted it the first time because it should be the standard term every non-Communist loving citizen should use every day when referring to the non-FOX (giving them a break here) media. Sorry.

It is universal in what it means, and in one word.

There are other examples of this in our civilization.

For instance: boobs.

109 Andrew Cuomo Flacks for the Chinese Communist Party, Repeatedly Calling Wuhan Virus "The European Virus"

Let's start calling it "The Italian Virus" - after all, Italy was the first hotspot in Europe.

Think Cuomo would find that acceptable?

Posted by: The ARC of History! at May 11, 2020 05:48 PM (I2/tG)

110 And Fredo Sr. rescinded his nursing home directive, recently.

In a country called America I once lived in, this would have led immediately, inter alia, to:

* intense media scrutiny about WHY did he rescind it?

* intense media questioning about WAS THIS A BIG, DEADLY MISTAKE TO HAVE ORDERED IN THE FIRST PLACE? And if so, why was it done? And if not, why is it being rescinded NOW?

You know. Obviously, actually logical questions, directed at a disastrously incompetent public official, for real reasons, related to actual facts.

Trust me - this kind of thing used to actually happen.

If there are new outbreaks in China, there will be dangerous outbreaks here, and we'll all die, even tough there are treatments for this that are not related to Bill Gates and most people who get this disease never go to the hospital.

China wants the world economy to stay closed, and their minions in the CDC/ Deep State will do whatever China wants.

Pity.

So all I could say was "no dear one, he did not tell anyone to drink Lysol. That was a lie." and he's all "But people on the tv said so". And so I'm working to introduce him to the idea that "you know, it's just like werewolves and vampires and zombies, those things are on TV to scare you but they're not really true."

Note how the media is all about saying Trump and his voters are killers but nothing is mentioned about all the grammas and grampas murdered by his rule (and yes he made it in March) on how Nursing homes had to take back sick people.

By the time a couple more years passed and I was eight I DID understand why the collapse of the Soviet Union was a big deal. But I didn't comprehend HOW big, until I saw my dad's reaction to the news. The guy is laconic and imperturbable, and he completely lost his composure.

There's something about the mohammedans that makes them allergic to technology and competency.

I remember reading some anecdotes from US troops tasked with training Iraqis and Afghans on marksmanship and tactics. They'd spend months trying to re-train them not to just stand there and do mag dumps out of their rifles, but to actually use their sights, aim, and use basic fire/maneuver. After months of frustrating effort, they'd finally get them to use their weapons like properly trained soldiers in exercises.

But the first time these same troops would go into combat? Full auto mag dumps from the hip, standing still out in the open.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at May 11, 2020 03:57 PM (KZzsI)


I'm
a bit out there on this point, maybe, but I think Cuomo should be
prosecuted for manslaughter at least, and possibly in fed court for
depriving and conspiracy to deprive civil rights.

There's one
thing that was shown in the earliest data on covid and that hasn't
changed significantly since, that people 60 and up are disproportionally
prone to die from the disease, and to a high degree. That's not based
on modeling, that's based on counting actual dead people. There's no
excuse for not knowing it and I don't believe any politician who says
they don't.

Given that, the decisions of Cuomo to refuse transfer
of older covid patients to hospitals (despite plenty of room) and to
require they be sent back to nursing homes (which have no resources to
deal with them and where their disease will be transmitted to other
residents) can only be construed as malevolent.

In short, I think the guy's a mass-murder.

I am very curious to know if Rice was the one who actually did the unmasking, or if Obama and Holder allowed anyone who wanted in their administration use her name and her clearance to do any unmasking they wanted.

The reason I wonder is that the sheer volume of the unmaskings seems to say that more than one person was working them.

of older covid patients to hospitals (despite plenty of room) and to require they be sent back to nursing homes (which have no resources to deal with them and where their disease will be transmitted to other residents) can only be construed as malevolent.


The absolute, most positive spin I can put on it is to say that maybe he thought the hospitals were going to be bombarded so they couldn't handle the stress and he had to do Italian-style "Triage" and sorry old people you gotta just eat it. And where do you send old granny you don't like any more to die? Nursing homes.

Now that want it sent to some obscure place in Michigan that coordinates things and properly credits the individuals giving the money back. However, instead of voiding the check, they want you to endorse it by signing on the back.

Putting a former President through a trial would split the country and ignite civil war. But arresting one might convince Obama that yes, shit be serious. The guy won't have the balls to keep playing once his advisers, especially Susan Rice and Sally Yates, start turning on him. I'd mark Holder and Jarrett as the ones most likely to face the gallows- the downside isn't big enough to keep them away.

To make requests in the governmental system at that level and of that nature, you need to be logged onto a computer or terminal.


In order to log onto a terminal or computer, you need your ID card, you actually stick the ID card into the keyboard, which will allow you to then enter your credentials and access the governmental system whereby you can make requests.


All this crap gets logged, stored and archived.


You only have one ID card and you literally cannot do anything without it.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom's $1 billion deal with a Chinese company to
produce protective masks during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic has
soured, as the masks failed to meet national safety and health
standards.

The deal has been a source of controversy and confusion among legislators ever since Newsom announced it on April 7 without releasing the details of the contract to state lawmakers.

Newsom's office finally revealed an amended contract to lawmakers on May 6 after the company responsible for providing the masks, Build Your Dreams (BYD) Auto Co. Ltd., was forced to return half of the initial $495 million down payment, because the masks they delivered failed to get the approval of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health

517 First off, the elders with the virus were SENT BACK to the Nursing homes they came from not the Hospitals sent them to one.

Second, The nursing homes begged him to stop as they didn't have the gloves and stuff to handle them let alone that they could spread to the other clients.

And last off, they begged him for PPE and he refused saying that they were trying to profit off the disease.

Yeah. I want that whole trial discovery to be televised. Cuomo will be lucky he doesn't get tarred and feathered let alone get reelected.

Trabants weighed about 800 pounds.

Very shortly after unification I slid a rented BMW off a road. Cobblestone road (the still had cobblestone Autobahns), rain, one Scotch too many.

A guy stopped and said oh I have some towing cable, I'll help. I said what luck that you have towing cable and he said Trabi drivers have everything.

Gov Polesmoker said they have to follow the rule of law. He can go pound sand too.
Posted by: Old Blue at May 11, 2020 06:09 PM (VNmG1)

This illustrates a concern I have. I hope the coffee shop could open again tomorrow and run the business without the license. I don't know what would happen from there but the best outcome would be that a legal determination would be made that the state no longer has the right to issue licenses because of the overreach of power.

In grammar school they dragged us to the "TV Room" to watch Shepard's space flight. We sat there and listened to Walter Cronkite, I think it was, and watched some more as steam came out of the rocket. Eventually one of my classmates asked, "Is there really a man in there?"

The teacher ridiculed him. I thought it was a reasonable question. We hadn't actually seen anybody inside.

Sorry, flounder! Didn't mean to be a drag. It's just something I've been working on for a long while. I've written it up three times, and finally realized I was marketing it to the wrong audiences. (Once for the pundits, once for the politicians, once for the academics.)

So I'm writing it up again, this time for an audience of one. The audience of one is "any adult individual." Turns out to be a difficult assignment. Turns out it's easy to amass facts and figures and describe public-choice mechanisms. It's very hard to put together an argument that can convince one generic adult, taking that adult as he is.

Of course, many of the adults are part of the problem and will resist or reject the notion because of self-interest. I can and do identify those folks in a way that any one can see, from their own personal experience.
Etc.

We don't know for sure, but of the approximate 335 million that live in America, perhaps a third of them have been infected with the Chinese virus.

And the vast majority of them had, or have, minor symptoms or no symptoms at all.

And the vast majority of deaths are those over 70, with major, serious health problems that would have killed a portion of them anyway.

No, this is a scam. Those that are continuing to push it are simply anti-American. Their hate for Trump outweighs the health of the country, and the future living standard of the country.

And their hate is so focused, they don't care.

No worries. I was having fun and making light. I have given up on fully 40+ percent of the country ever "getting it." Prepare for what may come.


As far as influence techniques, look at sales disciplines. Appeal to the mark's self-interest and inflated self-concept, analogize to his experiences, lead him to his own discovery of your answer. It is more powerful that way.

Nrs. Ihly's 3rd grade class in Federal Way, WA. Lakeland Elementary.

And she was really a cool teacher. The previous summer while camping in Western Montana, she caught a couple of chipmunks and brought them to class for the full year in a couple of cages.

If students didn't follow the basic rules or weren't quiet after being asked, no body could feed the chipmunks. One person screwed up, we all paid for it. Talk about a group learning experience.

It worked famously all year.
