His next speech will be at Normandy Landing because he's a Nazi.

Jeremy Diamond graduated high school in 2011, which would mean by now he's about ... (adds 17 to 9) ... around 26 years old. That's the age where Obama spin master Ben Rhodes said that journalists "literally know nothing." Sounds about right!

Glenn. Reynolds is spot on:

Now nobody will listen to you, because you’re a joke. If people die because you squandered your credibility, that’s your fault. You’re not disgraces to your profession, you’ve made your profession a disgrace.

Meanwhile, we learn that CNN's Brian Stelter has evidently not watched CNN since 2016.  Are progressives really this stupid?

What a friggin left wing idiot. He doesn't know that the Union won the battle of Gettysburg and  someone should enlighten the moron about Lincoln's famous address.  It's evident he either didn't study history of failed the course.

If Trump wanted to give a speech at a big Confederate victory he would go to Manassas Virginia or Chickamauga Georgia.



If everyone is thinking alike then somebody isn't thinking.

It is a brilliant idea, because nobody other than Trump knows that Lincoln was a Republican.  Gettysburg was also a very important "big battle with good people, and that in combination with the "1917" pandemic was probably the reason for the end of World War II. 


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_y5xY829UoY


Why does Trump still call it the "1917" flu?  Do you think it was because he made a mistake on the date the first time, and he can't admit an error, so he just changed the date so he wouldn't be wrong?  Or do you think that no one on his staff wants to let him know he is wrong, so he continuously uses the wrong date? 

Also HK, if Trump is correct that his minimal actions of restricting travel saved millions of lives, then you should probably stop dismissing COVID-19 as a relatively harmless disease that is not different than the flu.

As my grandpappy would've said, you're just "eat up" with hate for Trump, aren't you?

58% of all deaths were from people with a severe Vitamin-D deficiency.
Outdoors in the sun is the best preventative.
Average age of deaths from Covid is 82 years old.
More than 91% of all deaths were among those with known pre-conditions such as hypertension, cancer, heart failure.
In Hong Kong, there have been 14 deaths in the past 3 weeks.  Average age of 86, none under age 75, all with pre-existing conditions.

For those under age 25, they have been eight times more likely to die in an auto accident than from covid.
For those under age 25, you are three times more likely to die from the flu or pneumonia than from Covid.
There are 104 million Americans between ages 0-25. 
So far, there have been 270 deaths from Covid in that age group.
There have been 706 deaths from pneumonia and the flu in the same time period.
This, out of a total of over 29,000 deaths for this age group so far this year.
In other words, all those below age 25, over 99% of all deaths this year have been for something other than covid.
The increase in deaths from suicide, drug overdoses, delayed diagnosis of other diseases has far outnumbered those that have died from covid.

https://data.cdc.gov/NCHS/Provisional-COVID-19-Death-Counts-by-Sex-Age-and-S/9bhg-hcku

Half the deaths have been in nursing homes.  And most of those were in states such as New York and  New Jersey where the Governors forced infected patients that left the hospital back into their nursing homes, where they infected others.  It took them roughly five weeks to rescind the order, which in the meantime killed tens of thousands of the most vulnerable.
(which is why the peak of deaths in the US was in April, not now).
In addition, guess who has severe Vitamin-D deficiencies?
People in nursing homes.  Roughly 60% have Vitamin-D deficiencies because they're never outside!
(Banning people from parks and beaches is the dumbest thing the Government could do).

Hydroxychloroquine doesn't work for late stage, but is very effective for those that take it immediately after contracting the disease.
It is a cheap, effective, generic drug which costs less than $1 per dose.
66 studies show it works:
https://c19study.com/

The prominent "research" that said it doesn't work? 
It was by a Professor at Minnesota who works for - wait for it - Gilead Sciences, which is making Remdesivir.
Remdesivir is not a generic drug but which charges over $2,000 per dose.

In sum, be safe, be smart, but don't panic.
Consume dairy, but make sure you are outside getting plenty of sunshine!
Those young and healthy will get sick, and a small number suffer heart scarring or extended periods of severe tiredness.
But frankly, for the young, the flu has been more deadly than Covid.
Just the data - not opinions.


But while we are at it, let's continue to shut schools until we have a cure for the regular flu and outlaw automobiles until we can prevent car fatalities.

Matt Taibbi piles on the remdesivir fiasco....
Remdesivir isn't worth anything if hydroxychloroquine works.


https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-features/big-pharma-covid-19-profits-1041185/

SNIP:
For one thing, ICER reported it costs just $10 of raw materials to make each dose of remdesivir. Generic-drug producers in Bangladesh and India were already making a version of it, and their price per course of treatment was $600. Meanwhile, Gilead’s own price for governments around the world — the price it settled on for everyone except American private insurers — was $2,340 per treatment.

To recap: Gilead, a company with a market capitalization of more than $90 billion, making it bigger than Goldman Sachs, develops an antiviral drug with the help of $99 million in American government grant money. Though the drug may cost as little as $10 per dose to make, and is being produced generically in Bangladesh at about a fifth of the list price, and costs about a third less in Europe than it does in the U.S., Gilead ended up selling hundreds of thousands of doses at the maximum conceivable level, i.e., the American private-insurance price — which, incidentally, might be about 10 times what it’s worth, given its actual medical impact.

Remdesivir is a complex molecule, the cost of raw materials is irrelevant as compared with cost of manufacture.

Meanwhile, a vaccine ain't happening in any size I am told.

All vaccines are using RNA - which is very difficult to make. I was told that it is close to impossible to produce 100 million doses of a RNA vaccine in a year. There are over 7 Billion people in the world. Even if you take the 800 million in Europe and the US alone, it would take 8 years to get them all a vaccine.

These people thinking that "we'll get a vaccine and it will all go away in six months" are kidding themselves...

JMHO
