An ass does good…

I stand second to no one in my dislike of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick,  but I am glad he is donating $100,000 to a coronavirus relief fund.  Of course the fund is only for minority groups,  which gave the jackass a platform to carry  on about  America’s systemic and eternal racism.   Sometimes it seems the world allows nasty pieces of work to accumulate wealth which gives them a platform  —  at least until the money runs out…

Ghosts work here…

leave a comment »

Indonesian culture is full of superstitions.  Like cultures everywhere,  these views can cause their adherents to do,  or not do,  various things.  One village on Java Island has had a spate of  pocong sightings  which has frightened people into staying inside their homes.   Turns out the local police has hired people to portray the ghostly figures in an effort to create social distancing to protect the population from exposure to coronavirus.   Hey,  whatever works,  right?

UPDATE:   Many natives have returned to their villages in Central Java from large towns to escape the lock-down.   Instead of threatening them with fines or even jail time,  the Regent  has pledged  to send violators to abandoned or haunted houses.

Rotten reportage…

leave a comment »

As he often does,  Don Surber has the  perfect riposte  to Joy Reid and all the other lefty commentators who mocked Mike Lindell.   The patriot has turned over 75% of his manufacturing capability to providing masks for his fellow Americans.   The government did not order him to do so.   He studied N95 masks and realized his company could make them.   He and other creative business people are part of the solution.   The MSM is part of the problem.   CNN   cut away  when Lindell began speaking.   Surber is quite right —  keep having the live White House coronavirus briefings,  but keep the reporters out.   They can pretend to be journalists in their basements,  just as Joe Biden is pretending to be a presidential nominee in his.

For example,  MSNBC’s Chris Hayes thinks  it’s crazy  the White house coronavirus briefings are still being carried live. Of course he does,  because the reporters are playing gotcha.   They make asses of themselves,  Trump doesn’t fold, and the briefings are winners for Trump everyday.   People  watch because Trump talks,  but he also has experts beside him and they talk as well.  People have figured out they get real information from the briefings and garbage from the media.   Actor James Woods destroys another MSNBC talking  head here.

Remember the New Orleans woman who  supposedly died  of COVID-19 while awaiting her test results?  A lie propounded by the media,  and you can count on them NOT printing a correction.  Remember the man who died after eating fish tank cleaner?   His wife blames Trump.   Turns out  the wife  is a big  Democratic donor  and she poisoned them both.   She also has a history of mental illness.   That sounds about right,  doesn’t it,  but media ran with the story it wanted.

Don’t be fooled.   The press has already called for the daily briefings to cease because they know they help Trump,  regardless of their efforts to the contrary.   Their claim that they are worried about their health is probably true,  but this is a lovely  excuse for  boycotting without being bold enough to boycott.  Oh – don’t let CBS off the hook,  either —  it  used footage  from a hard-hit Italian hospital and claimed it was New York.

Mike Lindell finally understands  how evil  they are.

So can Texans…

sing from  their windows and balconies,  that is.   They may not be as musically inclined as the Italians,  but the spirit of community and support is equally as helpful.   Americans are not as mentally or physically tough as they once were,  and I’m all for people working together to help others.   Being alone is torture for some people,  and even if they won’t participate,  the sounds of life have to help a bit.

It couldn’t…

…happen to a more deserving guy.   Hossein Sheikholeslam,  the former Iranian ambassador to Syria,  has died  of coronavirus.   He studied at the University of California at Berkeley before becoming a leader of the radical Iranian students who stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 52 American diplomats captive during the 444-day Iran hostage crisis,  which ended shortly after Pres.  Ronald Reagan was sworn in.   He is the second top Iranian official dead of the virus.

And there is another — Mohammad Haj Abolghasem,  a senior commander  known as  the ‘Butcher of Tehran’ for his role in the bloody suppression of pro-democracy protests that began in November 2019.   May there be many,  many more.

Trump’s coronavirus presser…

leave a comment »

If you’ll recall,  Democrats were  screaming “racist!!”  only a few weeks ago when Trump made the perfectly sensible decision to reject all direct flights from China,  wisely buying the USA time to put plans into action.  Placing VP Mike Pence in charge of the coronavirus response was smart,  as Pence dealt with a MERS outbreak when he was governor of Indiana.   There is a link to the press conference embedded  in this  piece.   What you may notice is that Trump is sober,  reassuring — egads! — dare I say  “presidential”  in his demeanor.

If you doubt the Democrats are attempting  to weaponize  the virus  against Trump,  watch the coverage this presser receives.   Don’t think  the media  isn’t in on this  —  even the Associated Press  admits that  Democrats are distorting readiness for the virus.   And remember that  “ordinary”  flu kills thousands every year in the US.   Here’s a  handy chart for you.   If you take the necessary steps to prevent getting the flu,  you will be unlikely to come down with the coronavirus either.   I am fortunate — my immune system is so wildly overactive that it makes me miserable much of the year,  but I haven’t had a cold or the flu in decades.  If your system is less robust,  take care of yourself!

Final question:  what will the Left do when a quadrillion million Americans  don’t die  of coronavirus?

Easy way to kill…

leave a comment »

There are approximately 1 to 3 million Uighurs in  concentration camps  in northwestern China.   They are Muslims and the ChiComs have for years grabbed such people and taken them off for re-education,  claiming they are tied to Islamic extremists and are a bad influence on good Chinese citizens.   Wouldn’t it be oh so convenient if the coronavirus were to make its deathly way into the friendly environment of the camps’ appalling conditions and kill everyone within before the poor authorities could do anything to prevent it?

UPDATE:  So  it begins?
