Trump Headed for Re-election/ Virus Numbers Overblown by ‘Experts’

David Plouffe, who was one of the top people who got Obama elected in 2008, said recently:

…no one’s blaming Trump for the (economic damage from the Chinese virus)… almost no matter what happens (with the coronavirus), [the question is] can Donald Trump win Wisconsin? Can he win Michigan? Can he win Pennsylvania? Can he win Florida?’ Sure, because his base is so solid. And I think he’s going to turn out voters almost at a historical level on his behalf, so that makes him very dangerous if you’re Joe Biden.

Most Democrats know that this is true and has been saying it for weeks and months. As campaigning has ground to a halt due to the virus, Biden has been frozen out of the spotlight. This puts Biden at a major disadvantage as Trump remains on the front lines of the crisis during his daily briefings, which Americans are listening to intently by the tens of millions. Plouffe added:

There’s nothing he [Biden] can do about it. He’s not in office. He’s not a governor. He’s not the president.

So as has predicted for months, Trump will win re-election easily in November.

Trump is Totally Available to the Media

President Trump is the most transparent president ever. He is available for any and all questions at his daily briefings on the Chinese virus and he answers every question that he can.

In general he has made himself more available to the press than any other president. For instance he has stopped many times for questions on his way out of the White House when he easily could have acted like he was ‘in a hurry’. He will often answer questions for 20 minutes or more.

Obama had very little serious press interaction because Obama is dumb. He relied on a teleprompter for most of his public appearances while Trump can speak extemporaneously for 90 minutes.

Obama was a typical intellectual who could talk for ten minutes and say nothing. Yet the media treated him like he was a genius, just like they treated Democrat president Kennedy like he was a demi-god. In the 1960s, the Fake News media would roll on the floor in laughter every time that Kennedy said something was supposed to be vaguely funny. It was bizarre.

And you can be sure that if Hillary Clinton were president that she would be making brief daily statements about the coronavirus and then running away to take a nap since she is in bad health and since she has no idea how to respond to tough media questions… except to whine that she didn’t win the 2016 election.

Meanwhile here is some information from a blogger named Steve Elliott Grassfire who analyzed coronavirus data from New York City:

* The VAST MAJORITY of the victims are older (NYC, 70% 65 and over)
* Very few are under 50 (NYC, 5.8% under 45)
* Almost NO teenagers or children (NYC, one death under 18, or .07%)
* Only a fraction have NO OTHER HEALTH CONDITIONS (1.29%)

Meanwhile most of the Italians who died of the virus were old or very old and had other health problems. Italy has the oldest population in Europe. Secondly, the virus spread quickly in Italy because there is a large Chinese population in Italy that spread it around, while the left-wingers in Italy refused to allow anyone to say that the Chinese had brought the virus in or should be restricted from entering Italy. recommends that Italy expel all Chinese nationals. These Chinese are all communist spies since communists are the only people allowed to travel outside China. also recommends that the US expel all Chinese nationals within our shores since they too are all spies.

Communist China is an evil nation that is undermining the whole world economy with this virus.

Leftists and Democrats in the US are expressing a “virus utopianism” which starts with the assumption that there would be no virus if Hillary Clinton were president and they proceed from there, that every case under president Trump is attributable to Trump policies.

But we know that the Chinese virus would be vastly worse if Hillary were in the White House. We know that she never would have banned travel from China, as president Trump did on January 31. Democrats and their media cronies called Trump ‘racist’ for doing so.

Without that ban, hordes of infected Chinese would have flooded into the US after January 31 and up to the present day, and the virus would have spread much more widely than it has, with tens of thousands probably dead.

Of course if Hillary were president and tens of thousands were dead the Fake News media would be praising her for seeking to get the crisis under control and blaming it on ‘climate change’ – not China – as Obama already has done.

Is coronavirus serious? Yes. It is very contagious? Apparently so. But these numbers from the ‘experts’ are grossly exaggerated.

Meanwhile The Gateway Pundit reported:

The IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) model for the Coronavirus (that) the White House is relying on is complete garbage.

The US economy has been virtually shut down, unemployment spiked and small businesses are on the verge of shuttering based on faulty projections.

The IHME model is using New York and New Jersey data and applying it to the rest of the US.

It predicted that over 121,000 Americans would be hospitalized yesterday (April 1) over the Coronavirus…

The actual number? 31,142.

So that is exaggeration by a factor of four. Sean Davis of The Federalist website reported in separate tweets:

For example, the IMHE model predicted 1,716 people in Texas would be hospitalized yesterday from the Coronavirus, but the actual number of Texans hospitalized is 196.

In Georgia, the IMHE model predicted that as of yesterday, 2,777 people would have been hospitalized due to the Coronavirus.

The actual number of people hospitalized in Georgia? 952.

In Virginia, the IMHE model predicted that 607 Virginians would have been hospitalized as of yesterday due to the Coronavirus.

The actual number? 305.

In Tennessee, the IMHE model predicted that 2,214 people in Tennessee would have been hospitalized by yesterday due to the Coronavirus.

The actual number? 200.

Look at these numbers, some wrong by a factor of ten or more. So we can see that these dire projections from the government are way off, like the claim by Fauci and Birx that there could be up to 240,000 dead from the virus. predicts 20,000 dead, and I have never spent a single minute studying epidemiology.

The Gateway Pundit also reported about annual death rates for three other diseases:

The raw numbers for Corona, when compared to other infectious diseases, raises some legitimate questions about the disproportionate global panic (over coronavirus).

As of … April 1, 2020 there are 935,817 (coronavirus cases worldwide) (i.e., people who have tested positive). The key number is the number of deaths–47,208.

How does that stack up with other infectious diseases?

Influenza–the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated the annual mortality burden of influenza to be 250,000 to 500,000 …

Tuberculosis–1.3 million deaths per year

Malaria–403,000 deaths per year.

Why is it that we can live normal lives with (contagious) diseases such as Influenza, Tuberculosis and Malaria swirling around us but go into complete shutdown over Corona?

It does not make sense. Life is not risk free. We learn to live with risk. We need to learn to live with Corona as well.

Meanwhile we could never have a crisis with the United Nations trying to get money out of it. LifeSite News reported:

The United Nations Secretary-General, António Guterres, has announced the creation of a fund for addressing the global coronavirus pandemic – and he is simultaneously asking nations to contribute the equivalent of at least 10 percent of the annual income of the entire planet to a massive “human-centered, innovative and coordinated stimulus package” that would be administered at the international level.

Although Guterres doesn’t state it explicitly, he seems to be connecting the new fund, which he calls a “dedicated COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund,” with the massive stimulus package plan, announcing both measures in the same press release.

If countries were to accept the plan, the United Nations or some similar coordinating agency would be given the equivalent of approximately 8.7 trillion USD, an unprecedented amount that would be 2,900 times greater than the UN’s annual budget of 3 billion USD.

The proposed plan would effectively place a global agency, presumably the UN itself, in charge of propping up the economies of the world during the coronavirus crisis, placing it in charge of 10% of global income.

So there you go – $8.7 TRILLION dollars with the United Nations in charge of spending it. This is classic socialism – steal, steal, steal. has a better idea – the world should demand $8.7 trillion in ‘reparations’ from China and put president Trump in charge of distributing it so that it won’t be stolen by Third World kleptocrats.
