In The News  

·       Chuck Schumer – M.I.A.: The President sent Chuck what some called a “vicious” letter lambasting him over his focus on impeachment instead of the Wuhan Virus. I read it and would call it a well-deserved tongue lashing. Here is the letter in its entirety.

The numbers still don’t seem to justify the hysteria. Update on fatalities.

·       Well, there goes half of my repertoire. Disturbing number of students say ‘offensive jokes’ could be hate speech. That’s a term that should never have entered the mainstream vocabulary.

·       Let’s all get comfortable with saying bad things about China now. China is still a totalitarian communist monster and should be viewed as a threat to the United States, not an exotic business partner. The U.S. military has long viewed it as such, it’s time for the rest of us to get on board. The China Syndrome. “While the WHO gives China its imprimatur, evidence continues to mount of China’s malign role in every aspect of this pandemic.”  

·       Best April Fool’s Joke Ever? Biden offers to call Trump to give Wuhan Virus response advice.

·       Alyssa Milano, the current reigning Miss Hollywood Vapidity, has been unusually silent on the subject of Joe Biden, lately.

·       Poor Jake Tapper couldn’t even get CA Governor Newsome to take the bait and criticize President Trump. He instead praised the President as Jake worked hard to keep his head from exploding. There is a very good reason the media is polling below Whale feces. It would appear that most Americans have realized how utterly insignificant they are. Kurt Schlichter has a biting and humorous article on the subject.

We Americans are truly blessed by having a mainstream media full of brilliant renaissance men, women, and gender non-specific entities who are masters of so many varied and intermittently useful skills and who are eager to share their knowledge with us benighted souls. The pandemic has revealed that every urban Twitter blue check scribbler, MSNBCNN panelist, NYT/WaPo doofus, and barely legal “senior editor” of a website you never heard of, is a Nobel Prize-winning epidemiologist, a master logistician, and a diversity consultant to boot.

·       Never for a minute think that you can’t make a difference in changing the world just because you’re only one person.


·       President Trump took the time amid all his efforts on the Wuhan Virus to talk to Vlad and MBS. Crude Oil immediately rallied 30% on the news that the Saudis and Russians may agree to a 10 million barrel per day cut in production. Is there anything this guy can’t do? The mainstream media is having a collective head explosion. The term “mainstream media” may be quickly becoming obsolete.

·       Well, this is hardly a surprise, is it? Gov. Newsome sees the Wuhan Virus pandemic as an opportunity to implement leftist agenda. Many others, fortunately, see it as an opportunity to squash that agenda like the cockroach it is in November.

Gee, this is so surprising - thought no one who has been following it. FBI agents believe an ‘inside deal’ protected Hillary Clinton.
