  • The Coronavirus Is Deadliest Where Democrats Live

    The New York Times ^ | 25 May 2020 | Jennifer Medina and Robert Gebeloff
    Beyond perception and ideology, there are starkly different realities for red and blue America right now. The staggering American death toll from the coronavirus, now approaching 100,000, has touched every part of the country, but the losses have been especially acute along its coasts, in its major cities, across the industrial Midwest, and in New York City. The devastation, in other words, has been disproportionately felt in blue America, which helps explain why people on opposing sides of a partisan divide that has intensified in the past two decades are thinking about the virus differently. It is not just that...

    He's on-the-air, and on-fire. Rated one of America's Top 6 Talk Radio Show Hosts: Chris Plante from WMAL in DC. His show is the "prep work" for many other shows. And, unlike the others, he pulls no punches, tells it like it is and doesn't take any BS from liberal, demonKKKrat, leftist, commie, socialist, fascist and anarchist callers. He's the guy we'd all like to sit down with and have a dbl-cheeseburger and a cold one, while talking about the state of America, and the crazies who are pulling the strings, behind-the-scenes.

    College student organizations are asking President Trump to suspend the H-1B visa and OPT programs while nearly 40 million Americans are jobless due to the Chinese coronavirus crisis.In a letter to Trump obtained by Breitbart News, 30 college student organizations request that the OPT program be ended and the H-1B visa program be suspended to reduce white-collar labor market competition against American graduates seeking STEM jobs.“We are writing to you today on behalf of concerned graduating college seniors and young professionals nationwide,” the college student organizations write: Specifically, we ask you to immediately take action to rescind the work authorization...

    “Dear Mitch McConnell,” wrote Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts, Jr., last week. “Why don’t you just go ahead and call Barack Obama the n-word? You know you want to.”What led to this over-the-top racial attack from Pitts? Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had the audacity to disagree with an approach taken by former President Barack Obama, who leaked audio of himself critiquing the Trump administration after new revelations about his involvement spying on the incoming Trump administration. McConnell thought it an unwise deviation from norms.The political media used to agree about the importance of this norm. In 2007, former...

    American Thinker.com ^ | May 19, 2020 | Christopher Chantrill
    According to Tom Bevan, the shutdown wars are politics as usual, for “88% of Democrats believe the top priority of America is to “stay home, slow virus spread.”...Sixty-two percent of Republicans, on the other hand, favored getting the economy going as the top priority.” But watch out, Democrats, because America’s conventional-wisdom barometer, Peggy Noonan, writes that: Since the pandemic began, the overclass has been in charge -- scientists, doctors, political figures, consultants -- calling the shots for the average people. But personally they have less skin in the game. And not only that, but I’ll bet that the educated Gentry...

    La Plata, MD - On Friday, May 15, 2020, at 5:00 p.m. demonstrators gathered in front of the Charles County Government Center to protest the Board of County Commissioners decision to postpone the counties phase 1 reopening schedule. The protest was led by Bill Dotson, former District 28 Delegate, after the Board of County Commissioners voted in a 3-2 to keep Charles County closed until May 29, 2020. The demonstrators were met with opposition from Deron Tross, publisher and creator for the Facebook group, Charles County Matters Est. 2015. Tross and several other demonstrators supporting the Commissioner’s decision arrived to...

    Whenever you hear or read about someone in the media, what do you think happens to that person you’re reading about? With perceptions formulating in your mind about that person based on what you read and perhaps hear all around you, how do you think all of that affects that person? In an age where fake news, political slander, and censorship of real facts inundates the American media, this film, based on a true story, takes you up close and personal to the private life of a “regular joe” who lived a private hell because all of the above was...

    The NFL has spent the pandemic proceeding as if football will kick off as normal this fall. But despite the three-day virtual draft, despite the mega-hyped, fixed-date schedule release, despite all the public-facing optimism, the truth is this: The NFL isn’t in charge here. COVID-19 is. That’s the conclusion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institutes for Health and the leading authoritative voice on COVID-19 in America. Speaking to NBC’s Peter King this weekend, Fauci did not mince words: If the country is at the point in September where we are right now, there will be no...

  • Hydroxychloroquine: Promising COVID-19 Treatment Faces Political Hurdles

    The Economic Standard ^ | 05/08/2020 | Erik Sass
    Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) is part of recommended treatment for COVID-19 in modern healthcare systems around the world, and every day brings new evidence that appears to support this judgment call by overseas public health authorities. Sadly the U.S. is the only country on earth where the drug has become a toxic political football — due entirely to President Trump’s endorsement. With over 150 trials underway in the U.S. and worldwide to see if HCQ does indeed help COVID-19 patients, we must remove our partisan glasses so we can clearly interpret the results — and maybe even gain valuable insights into the...

    I tried to search FreeRepublic for any article title that included the words "Marcy," or "Marcy Park" and I came up empty. No articles matches the search. This, to me, seemed unbelievable. I tried "Fort Marcy" and "Ft. Marcy." No articles matches the search. I tried "Fort Marcy Park" and "Ft. Marcy Park." No articles matches the search. Can this be true? Or is it just me?

    CNN ^ | 1 May 2020 | Matt Egan
    New York (CNN Business)The coronavirus pandemic has exposed a gaping disconnect between unprecedented economic pain on Main Street and extreme optimism on Wall Street. The US economy is collapsing as never before. More than 30 million Americans have filed for unemployment. Millions of small businesses have requested forgivable loans to stay alive. And US GDP could decline at a breathtaking annualized rate of 40% during the second quarter. And yet the stock market is racking up massive gains. Even after retreating on Thursday, the S&P 500 spiked 13% in April. It was the best month for US stocks since January...

    OK, here is something to look into. On the Larry King show video, it starts with Reade's mother calling in to ask a question. But what was the show about in the first place to prompt the question? And why did King remark to one of the guests that this was why she did what she did. Was the show about sexual harassment or sexual harassment in the workplace??? I think this is relevant because one of the Dem's Talking Points, or Lying Points, is that the caller only said "problems" and did not specify sexual harassment. But, if the...
