TUCKER: DEMS PUTTING “WOKENESS ABOVE ALL” BY BLOCKING CORONAVIRUS RELIEF

Tucker: Dems Putting "Wokeness Above All" By Blocking Coronavirus Relief

Democratic legislation “uses the words diverse or diversity more than 60 times”

Steve Watson  – MARCH 24, 2020

Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson slammed Democrats for holding up the coronavirus relief legislation, urging that they are “indulging their creepy ideological obsessions” by inserting stuff that has absolutely “nothing to do with fighting the pandemic.”

Carlson highlighted several parts of the 1,400 page House Democratic bill, which is stuffed with pork, and noted that most of it is about being ‘woke’ rather than fighting the killer virus.

“The bill would require every corporation that receives coronavirus aid to have officers and a budget dedicated to diversity and inclusion initiatives for a minimum of five years after they get the money,” Carlson noted.

“Because that is going to keep America healthy and prosperous, just like it has,” Carlson sarcastically emphasised.

“Companies would also have to produce elaborate racial reports for the government listing the skin color and the sex of their officers and boards of directors. They have to prove they give enough money to firms owned by women and nonwhites, and of course how much they spend on diversity initiatives,” he continued, pointing to the relevant sections of the bill.

Carlson noted that the bill “uses the words diverse or diversity more than 60 times.”

“What does that have to do with the pandemic that might kill you?” he asserted, adding “Not one thing. Just more ugly race politics, the kind they specialize in.”

“This is insanity, it’s dangerous insanity,” he proclaimed, adding “Who cares what color your scientists are?”

Elitists Ready State-of-the-Art Doomsday Bunkers as Coronavirus Pandemic Worsens

By Shane Trejo 3/24/2020

While ordinary Americans deal with the coronavirus pandemic and the many anxieties that accompany the unprecedented crisis, the super rich are retreating to state-of-the-art bunkers featuring bowling alleys, swimming pools, and other amenities.

The providers of these doomsday bunkers are reporting a drastic increase in business, with coronavirus hysteria causing at least one economic sector to boom.

“As unpopular as coronavirus is, it’s getting the publicity of a Backstreet Boys hit in the ‘90s,” said Gary Lynch, general manager of Texas-based Rising S Bunkers. “People have an infatuation with it.”

Business is good for Lynch and other bunker manufacturers, as the ultra rich scramble to use their remaining wealth to seclude themselves. There is no limit to the luxuries that can be provided in a modern bunker, with many of these bunker models resembling mansions.

“Movie theaters are common,” Lynch said. “We built one in California that has a shooting range, swimming pool and bowling alley.”

Lynch offers 24 different options for individuals wishing to purchase a bunker. The smallest model costs $39,500 and includes a custom air filtration system, bunk beds, a functioning toilet, and a kitchen counter. A more decadent set-up is the Fortress, which costs $1.009 million, including 15 private bedrooms, 42 bunk beds, a panic room, and a room to house guns.

The most garish model of all is the Aristocrat, which features a sauna, hot tub, swimming pool, gym, greenhouse, billiards room and garage. It costs an incredible $8.35 million to construct and is off limits to all but the super rich. Coronavirus is causing a run on these types of shelters, Lynch explains, as high-class Americans realize the necessity of extreme preparedness.

“In 2008, I talked to a guy for four-five months who was thinking about purchasing a shelter. I think he probably used the coronavirus to convince his wife, because he finally just bought one,” Lynch said. “That’s how most buyers are; they’re not in it for one single reason.”

The providers of these bunkers feel they are supplying a much-needed service in the market to alleviate the authentic fears of families in an increasingly topsy-turvy world.

“We don’t create fear. We resolve it. The true elite all have backdoor plans. They’re jumping on planes and flying to islands,” said Robert Vicino, who is CEO of the shelter-building company Vivos. “We give people the peace of mind that they have their own backdoor solution for when it’s time to take shelter.”

Vicino noted that his clientele has moved from middle class to upper class in recent months, as the wealthy no longer feel insulated from the rest of society from their gated neighborhoods. He reports that interest in his bunkers are up 1,000 percent year-over-year, and sales are up 400 percent, as doomsday fever sweeps throughout America.

“As long as time permits, we will continue to build bunkers. This world won’t be safer tomorrow,” he added.

For the Americans without the wealth to retreat from society, they will have to deal with a tumultuous and dangerous reality for their loved ones as the coronavirus pandemic continues without any sign of slowing.

SICK CNN/MSNBC LEFTIST WISHES MELANIA TRUMP WILL GET INFECTED WITH CORONAVIRUS

CAP

The same guy has previously called for Trump’s assassination

Steve Watson – MARCH 20, 2020

Twisted talking head Rick Wilson sent out a tweet Wednesday expressing a desire to see the First Lady get infected with the killer coronavirus.

Wilson, who regularly appears on CNN and MSNBC programming to bash the President, was reposing to the announcement that Melania Trump will appear in coronavirus PSAs.

Wilson tweeted simply “#BeInfected”:

Wilson, a former GOP strategist, was most recently in the news when he and CNN’s Don Lemon, along with New York Times op-ed writer Wajahat Ali, traded impressions of ‘dumb redneck’ Trump supporters on air.

The exchange was later used by the GOP in ads to show how elitist and out of touch with everyday Americans these vile leftists are:

Following backlash, Wilson doubled down, calling the response “contrived phony bullshit outrage,” and using the attention to advertise his anti-Trump book titled ‘Running Against the Devil.’

Wilson has also previously called for the donor class to “put a bullet in” Donald Trump, and has also suggested that anti-vaxxers should be put in re-education camps and have their children taken away.

Wilson has also expressed hope for a recession so that Trump’s reelection chances would be hurt.

‘Leave hospital beds for coronavirus patients!’ Baltimore mayor kindly asks residents to stop shooting each other

CAP

Baltimore’s mayor has called on the city’s inhabitants to refrain from killing one another for the time being, asking them not to “clog up” hospital beds as the coronavirus pandemic spreads far and wide across the country.

“I want to reiterate how completely unacceptable the level of violence is that we have seen recently,” Mayor Jack Young said at a press conference on Wednesday, adding, “For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we’re not going to tolerate it. We’re going to come after you and we’re going to get you.”

We cannot clog up our hospitals, or their beds, with people who are being shot senselessly, because we’re going to need those beds for people who might be infected with the coronavirus.

The call to action – or inaction, rather – came after a police-involved shooting in Baltimore’s Madison Park neighborhood on Tuesday night that put at least seven people in the hospital, all believed to be in stable condition. Police say it’s not clear if the officer shot any of the wounded individuals himself, but did confirm that he discharged his weapon after encountering a man firing what they called a “semi-automatic long gun” into a crowd.

Is murder still a crime, though? Philly introduces catch-and-release for looters & drug dealers until coronavirus crisis ends

CAP

Baltimore – Maryland’s most dangerous city by far in terms of violent crime – isn’t the only locality struggling to deal with criminals amid the virus panic. Hoping to limit officers’ exposure to the deadly pathogen, Philadelphia’s police commissioner on Wednesday ordered departments to adopt a catch-and-release policy for non-violent offenders, temporarily letting carjackers, drug dealers and looters off the hook for the duration of the crisis. While the city plans on pursuing the suspects with arrest warrants after things return to normal, for now they will be left to walk free.

Late last week, Portland police similarly declared that officers would no longer respond to calls that don’t involve a “life-threatening” situation, in an effort to conserve police resources and insulate personnel from Covid-19. Police spokesman Kevin Allen later clarified that officers would only stop responding to “lower level stuff.”

“The bigger stuff, of course we’re going to respond,” he said. “We’re just going to be looking for any opportunity we can to use the phone to do our job.”

Police from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado took a slightly different approach, taking to Facebook to ask “all criminal activities/nefarious conduct to cease until further notice,” adding they would “update you when you can return to your normal criminal behavior.”

Los Angeles and New York City, meanwhile, have begun freeing non-violent inmates to make room in already-crowded prisons, another attempt to stem the spread of the outbreak.

 

MARTIAL LAW? National Guard Deployed Throughout Country Due to Coronavirus Outbreak

America is on lock down.

By Shane Trejo – 3/18/2020

The National Guard has announced that there are over 1,500 guardsman who have been deployed in 22 states across the country due to the coronavirus outbreak that is causing mass hysteria.

In the state of New York, guardsman “have been working with state and local officials to distribute food, disinfect public spaces and help run mobile screening facilities.”

“The community is extremely happy that we’re out here,” said Army Sgt. Corey Smith, with the New York Army Guard’s 1156th Engineer Company, in a press release. “They’ve been sharing stories with us about how tough it’s been for them getting food at the grocery store.”

“We’re all very happy to be here,” he added. “We’re just here to help out, hand out food and make sure everybody feels comfortable and safe.”

The National Guard is touting its reaction as proof that they are serving the American people, but skeptics are worried that the additional troop presence in the U.S. streets creeps the vulnerable nation ever closer to martial law.

Those fears have compounded by self-serving liberal bureaucrats using the crisis as a means to push Draconian public policy that they have supported for many years.

Big League Politics has reported on local bureaucrats using coronavirus panic to usurp the power to strip firearms:

New Orleans is the latest American city to declare a state of emergency that gives the mayor to suspend gun sales at her discretion.

Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s declaration of a state of emergency gives her office the power “if necessary, to suspend or limit the sale of alcoholic beverages, firearms, explosives, and combustibles.” The order was drafted last week.

Cantrell also now has the authority to suspend the distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages.

The order is ironic, considering New Orleans’ troubled history with emergency gun confiscation. City police enacted gun confiscation operations targeting law-abiding everyday citizens in the aftermath of 2005’s Hurricane Katrina, fueling into panic and blunting the effectiveness of hurricane response.

On March 17, 2020, a Sacramento County judge authorized the Sheriff’s Office to release prisoners who have 30 days or less left in their sentences.

Abbie VanSickle, a staff writer at The Marshall Project, tweeted, “BREAKING: Sacramento County judge authorizes the Sheriff’s Office to release jail inmates with 30 days or less remaining in their sentences. Ordered signed today and in effect until May 30. Includes misdemeanors and felonies. @MarshallProj

… According to the LA Times, the Los Angeles County Sheriff has already started releasing inmates in an attempt to stop the Wuhan virus from spreading. The department is also reducing the number of people they plan on taking into custody.

If Sacramento County fully follows through with this, people hope the prisoners have somewhere to stay at.

“I think if they have homes that should definitely be a factor. I think if they don’t have homes than where would they go?“ said Jessica Jarrety.

The radical Left is fully taking advantage of this crisis to unleash their radical, anarcho-tyrannical experiments on the rest of the populace.

The liberal response to coronavirus may turn out to be even more harmful to public safety than the pandemic itself, with martial law looking like a real possibility.

 

New Orleans Mayor Grabs Authority to Ban Gun Sales With Coronavirus Emergency Declaration

The first major city to prepare the possibility.

The order is ironic, considering New Orleans’ troubled history with emergency gun confiscation.

New Orleans appears to be the second American city to prepare a gun sales ban as part of a state of emergency, following Champaign, Illinois.

New Orleans police have been seen dispersing crowds from the city’s bar district on Magazine Street, ordering citizens to return to their homes and hotels in the midst of the epidemic.

It’s unfortunate that city officials believe lawful exercise of the Second Amendment represents an imminent threat, especially in an era where the general population is concerned for their own safety and security.

 

 

House Coronavirus Response Bill Hits Snag – Pelosi STILL Working on Corrections with Steve Mnuchin

 

The House of Representatives passed a Coronavirus response bill on Saturday, however the drama continued into Monday because the House Democrats cannot come to an agreement with the White House over what needs to be changed.

Pelosi is still working out the “major differences” with Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin.

Last week it was reported that Pelosi tried to sneak in federal funding for abortion into the Coronavirus response bill.

Now it’s being reported that the House met twice on Monday morning and gaveled in and gaveled out and have NOT approved the changes to the bill.

This is a huge problem because the House cannot send the bill to the Senate until they approve of the technical changes.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R–TX) insists on reading the changes (rightfully so) to the bill because as Pelosi has shown, she will sneak in funding for Democrat-backed causes.

Politico reported:

Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin were still working on the details Monday.

House sources said Monday that “major differences” remained between the White House and House Democrats over what was adopted and needed to be changed. This is slowing down the time table for House completion of the bill and sending it onto the Senate.

Pelosi and administration officials still remain hopeful they can achieve a workable compromise, but were tight lipped about the state of play on Monday.

The House passed its emergency package early Saturday morning but needs to make some technical corrections. Adding to the uncertainty on timing, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) is threatening to hold up the bill until he reviews the corrections.

Gohmert insists that he is not holding up the bill. There are 87 pages of changes to the language that he insists on reading and most Senators aren’t back in DC yet.

“Someone should at least read” the bill a source told Fox News.

Never forget that Nancy Pelosi held up a vote on Coronavirus a few weeks ago so that Democrats could run ads against Republicans on Super Tuesday.

 

 

The Democrats are weaponizing Covid-19 against Trump to do what Russiagate & impeachment could not

CAP

By Robert Bridge

Nobody in their right mind would wish for a global pandemic. Yet, such wisdom may seem less obvious in an election year as the Democrats look prepared to use the coronavirus as a weapon in their quest to unseat Trump.

Whatever one may think about the coronavirus — that it has been overblown, underestimated, or handled with impeccable care — one thing is indisputable: Trump’s political opponents will be hard-pressed not to use Covid-19 as yet another way of portraying the Republican leader as unworthy of the White House. After all, we are talking about the year 2020, when the American people are staring down the barrel of the most pivotal presidential election to come along in many years. In other words, nothing should surprise us.

Republican-Democrat infighting goes viral

Even as reports fly that President Trump will declare a national emergency, with the US bracing itself for the coronavirus pandemic, it appears the Democrats and Republicans will never agree on what definite steps should be taken. This could turn a manageable emergency into a full-blown crisis.

CAP

This week, Trump was dragged over the media coals for drawing analogies between the “common flu” and the coronavirus, remarking that the former disease has been responsible for far more fatalities to date. And in fact, Trump was correct. It’s easy to forget, amid all the hysteria that has greeted the aspiring scourge, that just several dozen Americans have died from Covid-19. But since there is no vaccination available against the disease, as there is for the common flu, Trump was slammed for not mentioning that information.

“Trump failed to point out in his tweet that there is currently no cure or vaccine for the coronavirus, while flu vaccines are available to many,” noted the Denver Channel, an affiliate of ABC News.

Earlier, Trump had once again incurred the wrath of his detractors, of which there is no shortage, when he dared to second guess the findings of the World Health Organization (WHO), which put the fatality rate for coronavirus at 3.4 percent, an alarmingly high kill rate for a disease.

“Well, I think the 3.4 percent is really a false number,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News. “Now, and this is just my hunch, and — but based on a lot of conversations with a lot of people that do this,” the real figure is “way under 1 percent,” he said.

Naturally, the media was quick to pounce on Trump as a snake-oil salesman of bad science, apparently happy to fudge figures during a crisis just to save his presidency. What the mainstream media failed to mention, however, is that a number of medical authorities have come out in support of Trump’s assertion that the fatality stats are way overblown.

CAP

In an unusually sober and rational article on Covid-19, published in Slate, Dr. Jeremy Samuel Faust used an ingenious method for calculating the true fatality rate by examining data taken from the “natural laboratory” of the Diamond Princess Cruise ship, which had been quarantined off the coast of Japan with 3,711 miserable passengers on board. Of that number, 705 passengers tested positive for COVID-19, while six passengers — all of them over the age of 70 years old — eventually died from the illness. That put the fatality rate at just 0.85 percent.

Did Dr. Faust’s analysis calm the hysteria that has taken much of the world by storm? Are you kidding? In fact, it has only gotten worse, and the reason could very well be connected to the political firestorm that has engulfed the country since 2016.

Covid-19: A tempest in a political tinderbox?

Although just a handful of Americans have lost their lives to the coronavirus, the public is behaving as though Godzilla had just stomped ashore, threatening to wreak death and destruction from sea to shining sea. Not only has Wall Street suffered record losses, events across the country that require the attendance of disease-carrying humans have been duly cancelled. The hysteria is not confined to the US sanatorium; a number of countries are experiencing food and supply shortages due to panic buying.

Amid such an unprecedented global meltdown, could anyone fault Trump for imposing a ban on European citizens from traveling to the United States for 30 days? Of course they could! After all, the Orange Man hunkered down on Pennsylvania Avenue can do absolutely nothing good, despite the fact that similar methods initiated by the Chinese government seems to have halted the spread of the disease.

Any guesses as to how the Democrats have chosen to slam Trump’s European travel ban? At a time when the United States is on the verge of becoming more isolationist at any time in its recent history, slamming shut its border to European states, which make up some of the world’s biggest economies, the Democrats are focusing their attention on Trump’s use of the term “foreign virus” to describe the challenge facing the nation.

Twitter is currently littered with comments from Democrats accusing the Trump administration of resorting to racism and xenophobia in its effort to contain the disease.

CAP

Joe Biden, the former vice president who looks positioned to take on Trump in November, also did not miss a cheap opportunity to give the racist slur a drive around the Beltway.

“Neither should we panic or fall back on xenophobia,” Biden said in an address on Thursday. “Labeling Covid-19 a ‘foreign virus’ does not displace accountability for the misjudgments that have been taken, thus far, by the Trump administration.”

Amid all this sickening self-righteousness, I am surprised the Democrats have not accused the Republicans for the ‘cultural appropriation’ of the deadly virus, which first reared its head in China.

Is this really the time for a national hand-wringing debate over semantics? After all, the world lived happily with the word ‘Spanish flu’ for centuries without Liberals uttering any objections (and despite the fact that the 1918 influenza pandemic is said to have killed up to 50 million people). But now that the question of the Democrats winning ultimate power in Washington, DC is riding on the line, breathing the term “foreign virus” has struck a nerve with Team Woke.

In closing, there is one important feature about COVID-19 that has some bearing on the upcoming presidential showdown. Since the disease seems to be particularly dangerous to individuals over the age of 70, the Democrats and Republicans — who are all fielding septuagenarians in November — would do well to put aside their political backstabbing and find a way to beat the coronavirus. Their political lives could literally depend upon it.
