Pandemic or Dempanic? Experts or Charlatans?

I just finished watching the video “Plandemic” which has been making it’s way through social media this past week. Even without Dr. Mikovitz story, I must say that I still found it very compelling and a number of things gave me pause.  Stay with me here……. First, I took note of how eerily similar theContinue reading “Pandemic or Dempanic? Experts or Charlatans?”

COVID-19 and Trump Derangement Syndrome: Bleach and Sunlight, the Best Disinfectant.

President Trump is once again under attack for some off-the-cuff remarks he made during yesterday’s Coronavirus press conference. William Bryan, acting head of the US Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate, had just finished outlining the findings of a study on the effects of ultraviolet light and disinfectants on Coronavirus. Below are thoseContinue reading “COVID-19 and Trump Derangement Syndrome: Bleach and Sunlight, the Best Disinfectant.”

Governors vs COVID-19: Hobson’s Choice or Sophie’s Choice?

Last week, President Trump stated that he had the power to reopen the economy and intimated that he would soon do so. Governors immediately pushed back on that notion, the loudest, biggest mouth in the room being New York’s Andrew Cuomo. Governor Cuomo said that in America, “we don’t have a king. We have aContinue reading “Governors vs COVID-19: Hobson’s Choice or Sophie’s Choice?”

Civil Liberties: COVID vs Constitution.

You might be shocked by how many Americans believe that the quasi-socialism under which we now find ourselves living is the result of laws or executive orders enacted to deal with the Coronavirus. I am not. The numbers of people who don’t know their own rights is shocking. Simply shocking. The reason a man wasContinue reading “Civil Liberties: COVID vs Constitution.”

“Downplaying the virus.” Selective Memory. Selective Outrage.

On Monday (April 20) I watched “PBS Newshour’s” Yamiche Alcindor once again attack/accuse President Trump during his daily Coronavirus press conference. Hurling vitriol at Trump is her raison d’etre. This time, Alcindor claims to have interviewed “someone” who told her his family became sick after attending a funeral in mid-March, “mainly because you weren’t takingContinue reading ““Downplaying the virus.” Selective Memory. Selective Outrage.”

We’re Not Going To Take This Much Longer

“The American People are not morons. They understand what I’m about to say and at some point, we’re gonna have to trust ‘em. Number one: Very, very soon, the can’s gonna run outta road. We gotta open this economy. If we don’t, it’s gonna collapse. And if the US economy collapses, the world economy collapses.Continue reading “We’re Not Going To Take This Much Longer”

The Coronavirus Crisis: A Star is Born.

Americans are spending an inordinate amount of time watching television of late and I think we can all agree the constant barrage of Covid-19-themed commercials long ago achieved critical mass. In an earlier blog, I did speak to the latest iteration of pablum coming from Madison Avenue. Old platitudes and trite, hackneyed phrases like “We’reContinue reading “The Coronavirus Crisis: A Star is Born.”

“We’re here for you.” Please. Just Stop.

Did you ever get a phone call from someone with whom you haven’t spoken for a long time, who told you the reason for his call was “just to see how you’re doing? After a few minutes of niceties, did that “old friend” then ask you to do him a favor? If you hadn’t alreadyContinue reading ““We’re here for you.” Please. Just Stop.”

Coming Together During a Crisis: Wouldn’t it Be Nice?

Wouldn’t it be nice if news anchors, pundits and contributors stopped beating the panic drum, talking about the “astonishing spread of Coronavirus” – as Fox News Chris Wallace did yesterday – without mentioning that the rapidly-increasing numbers of cases is due to the rapid increase of the numbers of people being tested, now that theContinue reading “Coming Together During a Crisis: Wouldn’t it Be Nice?”

“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule it.” – H. L. Mencken

I’ve posted this quote many, many times. It’s from Barack Obama’s first chief of staff, Rahm Emanuel. It has become the Democrats’ First Commandment. “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” In that context,Continue reading ““The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule it.” – H.
