Coronavirus vs. Swine Flu/ California ‘Bullet Train’ Fails

President Trump’s press conference declaring a national emergency over the Chinese coronavirus was professional and reassuring. It was great to watch the stock ticker skyrocket as the press conference went on.

Now here is today’s main commentary:

On March 12, it was reported that 125,000 people worldwide had been infected with the Chinese coronavirus. And in their ongoing attempt to smear president Trump, the Fake News media are hysterically reporting that 37 Americans have died, including 23 elderly people in a nursing home near Seattle.

Meanwhile Wikipedia reported about the H1N1 swine flu epidemic of 2009:

On October 24, 2009, President Barack Obama declared Swine Flu a national emergency in the United States. On November 12, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 22 million Americans had been infected with … H1N1 and 4,000 Americans (had) died. On December 10, 2009, the CDC reported an estimated 50 million Americans or 1 in 6 people had been infected with the … H1N1 Virus and 10,000 Americans had died…

Look at the difference between Obama and Trump. An estimated 1,000 Americans had died by the time that Obama even declared an emergency. Within three weeks 3,000 more Americans had died. And then over the next month, 6,000 more Americans died. Yet we did not hear a peep from the media skunks about the swine flu since they adore Obama. Meanwhile we have wall-to-wall coverage of the coronavirus with just 37 deaths.

Now look at this from Wikipedia about the swine flu:

Initially called an “outbreak”, widespread H1N1 infection was first recognized in the state of Veracruz, Mexico, with evidence that the virus had been present for months before it was officially called an “epidemic”. The Mexican government closed most of Mexico City’s public and private facilities in an attempt to contain the spread of the virus; however, it continued to spread globally, and clinics in some areas were overwhelmed by infected people.

So did Obama ever close the border with Mexico or seek to halt illegal immigration from Mexico during his 8 years in office?

No. On the other hand, president Trump is acting boldly. On January 31, 2020, even before a single coronavirus infection had been reported inside the US, Trump banned travel between China and the US. And while the Democrats called him a racist, that action alone probably saved thousands of American lives.

Meanwhile as Granpa Joe Biden rips president Trump over the coronavirus, The Gateway Pundit reported:

Not only was Obama’s response to the Swine Flu pandemic anemic, his VP, Joe Biden made reckless comments unsupported by science and experts.

Biden said: “I would tell members of my family — and I have — I wouldn’t go anywhere in confined places now. It’s not that it’s going to Mexico in a confined aircraft where one person sneezes, that goes all the way through the aircraft.”

“I would not be, at this point, if they had another way of transportation, suggesting they ride the subway. From my perspective, this relates to mitigation. If you’re out in the middle of the field and someone sneezes, that’s one thing. If you’re in a closed aircraft, a closed container, a closed car, a closed classroom, that’s another thing.”

Biden’s comments drew so much criticism from the airline industry that Obama’s press secretary had to clarify them. At the same time, Biden made a statement about coronavirus on March 12 but did not even mention that it came from China or even mention the word ‘China’. This is what we can expect from China-lover Joe.

Friends, the frenzy over coronavirus is just another attempt to bring down president Trump.

The media are trying to destroy the American economy with coronavirus hysteria in the name of defeating Trump. And their effort will fail, just like all of their other attempts to bring down the president have failed.

Update: Two days after announcing that they had been infected with Chinese coronavirus, Hollywood actor Tom Hanks and his wife reported that they are doing OK and tweeted out a nice photo of themselves looking fine.

Well, if this disease is so deadly, then wouldn’t they be sick for weeks, months or years?

Of course. Meanwhile Apple is re-opening all 42 of its stores in China. So if the coronavirus is so bad, why is Apple doing this in heavily-infected China?

Answer: Because the coronavirus is being hyped way out of proportion.

And don’t forget the most important fact. This is America, where we do amazing things every day.

God bless America!

Trump Primary Votes Smash All Records

Just to show you how much “enthusiasm” there is for president Trump, he is breaking all records for votes received in 2020 primary races despite the fact that he is virtually unopposed and there is really no need for Republicans to even go out and vote for him. Yet look at this from The Political Insider:

With 99.5 percent of voting reported, Trump received 1,871,515 total votes in the Texas Republican primary.

This number is more than the top four … Democrats combined! Current frontrunner Joe Biden, combined with Bernie Sanders, Michael Bloomberg, and Elizabeth Warren all earned a total of 1.7 million votes in Texas. This was the total with 91.3 percent reporting so obviously some Democrat votes aren’t tallied yet.

Amazing… simply amazing. President Trump’s supporters will never abandon him.

Update: Trump Curse Strikes Again

Breitbart News reports:

Tech Freedom President Berin Szóka announced on Friday that he would step down as the organization’s president after wondering if it would be “poetic justice” if President Donald Trump were to die of the coronavirus.

TechFeedom receives “substantial funding” from Google and is also a part of the search giant’s “Public Policy Fellowship” program, in which Google places interns at public policy organizations, including TechFreedom.

Black Democrat Politician Found in Hotel Room with Drugs

Andrew Gillum, who almost won the Florida gubernatorial race in 2018 as a far-left Democrat candidate, was discovered in a hotel room with drugs and two other men. The Gateway Pundit reports:

Billed by Democrats as “THE NEXT OBAMA”, former Democrat nominee for Governor in the state of Florida made the news on Friday.

Andrew Gillum was named in a police report that involved baggies of crystal meth and two other men in Miami Beach hotel room last night.

The police report first published online by Candace Owens, is extremely concerning.

Gillum, who came close to beating former Congressman Ron DeSantis in 2018 for governor, was apparently involved in quite the party. Paramedics were called to the room before police arrived to treat another man who was allegedly overdosing from what was described as crystal meth.

According to one of the men involved in the “party”, he entered the hotel room to find Andrew Gillum and the other man under the influence of an “unknown” substance. Gillum then collapsed on the bed in a prone position before entering the bathroom to vomit. When police were taking statements from the men, Gillum was so drunk that he was unable to speak coherently. He was allowed to return to another hotel room without being arrested, according to The Capitolist.

Yes, just another day in the life of the Democrat party.

Update: Gillum is a CNN political commentator.

Sex-Changer/Traitor Gets out of Jail

The Gateway Pundit reports:

In 2010, Private First Class Bradley Manning (who later transitioned to Chelsea) stole State Department documents, many of them secret international embassy reports. Manning smuggled the security documents out on a CD labeled “Lady Gaga,” and handed them to WikiLeaks – WikiLeaks subsequently took the sensitive cables and made them public.

In 2013, Manning was sentenced to 35 years in prison for giving classified materials to WikiLeaks.

In April 2014 a Kansas judge allowed Bradley Manning to change his name to “Chelsea.”

In January of 2017, Obama commuted Manning’s sentence from 35 years to 7 years — Manning was released from prison in May of 2017.

According to reports, Manning tried to commit suicide this week by hanging himself with a bed sheet in his prison cell.

Axios reported that since Manning’s testimony is no longer needed the judge said he should be released from custody.

This guy is a sicko and a traitor. Naturally Obama commuted his sentence. He was certainly willing to break the law, but he sure does not like the punishment so he tried to kill himself.

California Bullet Train Hoax Continues

For more than a decade California tried to build a high-speed passenger train line between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The project has been largely abandoned after billions of taxpayer dollars were wasted on it.

The main problem is that the direct flying/driving distance between the two cities is 365 miles yet the new passenger train line would cover 520 miles since it needs to go on a circuitous path to serve cities in California’s Central Valley.

So how do you save time and energy by going all of those extra miles?

You don’t. This train is another ‘green’ hoax. And it gets worse and worse as time passes. Its original cost was estimated at $33 billion, but that has risen to projections of $82 billion. estimates that it would cost $150 billion if it were ever completed, which it never will be.

And since there already are four ways to travel between the two cities on the existing route – by car, by Amtrak train, by bus or by plane – then why should California invest all that money into a train line that goes all of those extra miles?

It should not. It is just another ‘green’ boondoggle with massive amounts of taxpayer money wasted on corrupt schemes to promote, design, build, operate and maintain a very expensive train line that very few people even would ride.

Proponents of the train have claimed that it would go 200 miles per hour and travel between the two cities in three hours, including stops in between.

But that is false. It could possibly reach 200 miles per hour on short sections of track in the flat Central Valley, but most of the time it would go much slower. has studied trains for 50 years and I calculate that the trip would take up to 8 hours since the trains would have to climb and descend a mountain pass, would have to stop repeatedly, and then would have to enter the cities of Los Angeles and San Francisco on long stretches of existing – and crowded – freight train tracks and commuter train tracks that require much lower speeds.

Meanwhile Fox News reported:

Employees at the lead consulting firm for the struggling California bullet train project were told to “shut up” and threatened with termination if they talked about the costly infrastructure project, according to a report this week.

“I was told to shut up and not say anything,” Mark Styles, who worked for WSP, told the Los Angeles Times. “I was told that I didn’t understand the political arena the project was in. I told them I am not going to shut up. This is my job.”

The Times spoke to a half dozen current and former senior officials, who said the culture that threatened to punish or terminate employees who didn’t promote the company line explains why the project has gone on for more than 10 years despite warnings about its risks and money issues.

OK, we know the deal. This whole thing is a web of inefficiency and government corruption. Period. End of story.
