Literally hours after I posted my latest Wuhan COVID rant, President Trump announced that he tested positive. Prayers and well-wishes of course, we all hope that he recovers, and I have no doubt that he will. Using the stats since the beginning of the crisis, he has a 95% chance of full recovery, and if you toss out the sad results from NY, NJ, and MI in three counties around Detroit due to insane nursing home policies, he has over a 99% chance of recovery. Statistically speaking.
I have no doubt that President Trump will have a complete recovery. He had a mild case to begin with. Melania is even better situated.
I am concerned about so-called positive cases with no symptoms, as apparently Mike Lee, Thom Tillis, Kellyann Conway and Ron Johnson were reported. Now Kayleigh McEnany. Please refer to my previous post. Many, if not most of COVID positive tests are pure bunk. The PRC swab test strips the DNA from the RNA and amplifies it to a factor of one trillion times. The scientist who won a Nobel prize for his research has stated that his procedure was for research only, not for diagnosis. I’m not convinced that supposed asymptomatic cases are cases at all. If you don’t have symptoms, even if you test positive with the PRC swab test, you probably do not have the COVID, and can not spread it.
In other news, there was a debate last week during which Chris Wallace attempted to get Trump to cry “uncle” over white supremacists and the KKK. Which makes zero sense, since both are historically a Democrat thing. Maybe not so strangely, Wallace did not press Biden on ANTIFA and BLM Marxists. He didn’t even ask the question.
Yet, when Trump was being asked this loaded question, Biden jumps in with “Proud Boys” Say it! Say it!
Excuse me for pointing out that there have not been any white supremacist riots. Not one. If there were any, they would have been Democrat white supremacist riots. Instead, we have Democrats denying that Marxist BLM and ANTIFA riots have even happened, while Democrat officials have allowed and even encouraged the rioting, looting and arson which we have all seen for the past six months or more.
Neither the Proud Boys, or Patriot Prayer are racist.
Enrique Tarrio is a black Cuban-American. He is the national chairman of the Proud Boys. Continue reading On “White Supremacists”
It Is Time To End Wuhan Virus Insanity Now
Rest In Peace to all of the victims of the Chinese Wuhan Corona Virus, AKA, COVID-19. No one wanted to see this happen. It is a tragedy that the CCP covered up the outbreak for so long and still are not cooperating in any meaningful way with our scientists, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths world-wide.
Shutting down our country and the world for that matter for over a month now no longer makes any sense. I’m not sure that it ever has. Now that we have some real data, perhaps some level minds can prevail. At this point, I’m not holding my breath.
The initial hysteria had a lot to due with the fact that the Wuhan Virus was something that we haven’t seen before, accompanied by a researcher in England issuing the Imperial College Model projection which claimed that over 2 million Americans could die if this was unchecked, and close to a million in the UK. Predictions for most other countries in the western world were equally as dire. This guy is a long time expert, the only problem is that every single modeling prediction that he has issued has been wrong. It looks that his initial projections will be off by a factor of 100, maybe more.
The Scientist Whose Doomsday Pandemic Model Predicted Armageddon Just Walked Back The Apocalyptic Predictions
Imperial College scientist who predicted 500K coronavirus deaths in UK adjusts figure to 20K or fewer
How it began may have very well been from an infected researcher at a top level biological facility in Wuhan, China. No one knows that it was from a live bat when the horseshoe bat in question is native 600 miles away from Wuhan, and supposedly they don’t sell bats at that Wuhan wet market.
We first learned of this biological crisis in a nursing home in Washington before anyone knew how it spread or what it was. China and the WHO was saying that it didn’t spread person to person. Direct contact only. Right.
Towards the end of January, President Trump ended all air traffic from China. He was called a racist and worse. Pelsoi encouraged celebrating the Chinese New Year in San Fransisco and Mayor DeBlasio made similar comments in NYC.
Unfortunately Dyngus Day got cancelled in my neck of the woods.
Sadly, this crisis seems to have been politicized. See anything that Speaker Pelosi has said about this virus. Most if not all state governors have been more kind, if only to boost up their federal FEMA dollars. NY Gov Cuomo has created a new art form.
Speaking of Cuomo, there is a new MIT study which stated that the virus spread so fast in NYC mostly due to mass transit. The subway, and buses. Duh! Remind me again why I am against subsidizing mass transit.

Evidence That the Virus Is Much Less Deadly Than People Feared Weakens the Case for Maintaining Lockdowns
The argument initially was that we should take measures to insure that our hospitals were not over-whelmed. Instead we are seeing empty hospital beds everywhere, and people needing hip and knee replacements and more are being put off down the road for life and pain-easing surgeries. That, and hospital staff are being laid off due to lack of work.
We were told that we needed to shut down our economy in order that our hospitals would not be overwhelmed by COVID19 patients. That strategy worked so well that today many hospitals are occupied at rates of 30-50%.
Thanks to the ban on non-emergency procedures, the Rochester campus is operating at 35 to 40 percent capacity, and surgical volume is at 25 to 30 percent of the typical level. The company is now projecting a $3 billion revenue loss.
irrespective of whether the country quarantined like Israel, or went about business as usual like Sweden, coronavirus peaked and subsided in the exact same way.
