Politicizing the Coronavirus Outbreak

Politicizing the Coronavirus Outbreak

By: Vic Eldred  •  244 comments  •  5 months ago  •  LOCKED
Yesterday the President held a press conference to address the outbreak of the Coronavirus. He had asked congress for  $1.25 billion in new money for vaccine development and purchasing protective equipment, in addition to spending unused funds earmarked to fight Ebola. (Total $2.5 billion). The response was immediate, totally political and based on what we've experienced with democrats,...
Feb 29 10:07pm @13.1.12 Jasper, Proof of what? I am reading your words. That is all we all have to go on. And saying that something is unflattering is personal to me, while all I did was ask you a question.
Feb 29 4:59pm @16.3.5 OK then we agree.
Feb 29 4:57pm @13.1.10 "..." Maybe that is because I don't read junk news. He is unqualified for the job because he has no background in this field.  "..." What his opinions changed when he became the president?...
Feb 29 4:53pm @13.1.9 Vic, Will you defend the fact that Trump said one thing one time and is doing a totally different thing this time?
Feb 29 4:52pm @13.1.8 That is not what Trump is saying... and you know what, he was right in 2014. But now it's do as I say, not as I said. 
Feb 29 3:07pm @12.1.16 Jasper, The Chinese don't need to enter illegally through the southern border. They come through the airports and our northern border, too. They have been doing this for a very long time, along...
Feb 29 2:34pm @16.3.3 What about if you cant pay?
Feb 29 2:32pm @13.1.4 "..." I have read plenty of articles that never mentions his faith. What I also have read, is that Mr. Trump tweeted in 2014 mocking Obama for not placing a doctor as the lead in the same...
Feb 29 2:28pm @12.1.13 "..." How is it blame? "..." I didn't notice it. I will have to check it out.
Feb 29 2:25pm @12.1.12 Wally,  Mexico was one of the last countries to get it and they are not streaming over the border. That is an exaggeration. Frankly, given the number of cases here, I would stay in Mexico.
Feb 29 1:24pm @12.1.8 "..." Please explain to me what one has to do with the other... keeping in mind that I am for border control.
Feb 29 1:19pm @12.1.7 Vic, A disease that they can't figure out how it's being spread and has a 2% mortality rate is reason to be concerned. The flu of 1918 had a 5% mortality rate and killed over half a billion...
Feb 29 1:16pm @15.1.1 Also here on Long Island, a lab says they are close to having a vaccine, but there are still too many unknown variables with this virus to know how safe it will be.
Feb 29 1:14pm @13.1.1 While I agree that Mr. Pence's faith has nothing to do with anything here, his qualifications do and that is not identity politics. 
Feb 28 10:50pm @1.1.5 "..." So far the death rate from the coronavirus is much higher than for flu, so there is reason to be concerned.

This is great news. Thanks to the Christian Post news reporter for this report.  Ben Carson and Alveda King are great Americans.  Fatherhood and motherhood begin at conception.  The growing strength and numbers of u in he pro science pro life movement has. Caused the pro abortion groups to become ever more rabid and extreme in their comments and public demonstrations.

Feb 29 4:49pm @1.1.2 "..." Prove that.

Warning to all Sanders supporters and anti-Trump folks. You might not like this.

Feb 20 5:01pm @37.1.1 LOL!
Feb 20 3:46pm @36.1.1 Perfect example Tig. Maybe it was smart of Bloomberg to remain quiet. That's what Trump did till they all slaughtered each other and he was last man standing.

Feb 19 10:44pm @11.2.10 LMAO!!!!!
Feb 19 10:35pm @2.1.26 Trying... Running this and the vigor on stage is making this debate not a snorefest. 
Feb 19 10:33pm @5.1.4 "..." I totally disagree.... 
Feb 19 10:31pm @11.2.5 But some of them are not paying attention to the time and are talking over each other
Feb 19 10:30pm @20.1 He might be finding his footing. 
Feb 19 10:26pm @19.1.2 Indeed he is. 
Feb 19 10:26pm @18.1 Third youngest. 
Feb 19 10:25pm @16.1 That maybe true. Hard to tell. Everyone has perfect 20/20 hindsight. 
Feb 19 10:21pm @2.1.23 Would you vote for him now?
Feb 19 10:20pm @2.1.22 I think she looks nasty and unhinged. 
Feb 19 10:19pm @1.1.7 He just did a fine job with Redling. 
Feb 19 10:16pm @1.1.5 Please stay on topic, which is the DNC debate.
Feb 19 10:14pm @11.1.5 "..." While I agree with what you said, I think in the long run, it might give him the breathing space that he needed. 
Feb 19 10:12pm @6.1.1 True.
Feb 19 10:12pm @5.2.1 "..." I agree.
Feb 19 10:09pm @5.1.2 The moderators are not giving him time either.. that isn't helping.
Feb 19 10:07pm @12.3.3 Gonna disagree. She has soured my taste.
Feb 19 10:05pm @14.1 I have noticed that. Must be the solider in him. Calmness under fire. 
Feb 19 10:04pm @11.2.3 The moderators are not being fair with time.
Feb 19 10:02pm @11.1.2 I would give it Klobucher, Buttigieg and Biden.
Feb 19 10:00pm @2.1.16 Warren has been up his ass since the bell rang. In fact, I think of all the people up there tonight, she is the most unlikeable. 
Feb 19 9:58pm @1.1.2 Well, they are all very toothy for sure.
Feb 19 9:55pm @13.1 True. 
Feb 19 9:55pm @12.1 I totally agree, Tig. Warren has been on a rampage. I've lost my taste for her totally.
Feb 19 9:53pm @8.2.1 Quite so. 
Feb 19 9:51pm @11.2 He does seem a bit out of practice but this is the first debate that has been a free for all. That being said, he isn't being nasty either.
Feb 19 9:51pm @10.2 Agreed.
Feb 19 9:50pm @9.1 "..."
Feb 19 9:48pm @2.1.14 Are you planning on voting for him?
Feb 19 9:41pm @8.1.1 I agree with both of you.
Feb 19 9:33pm @5.3.1 I have noticed the same thing. 
Feb 19 9:31pm @6 Biden finally is feisty tonight. 
Feb 19 9:29pm @5.1 I agree with you Raven... and all of this is just opinion on what we are seeing. No worries.
Feb 19 9:27pm @2.1.10 "..." again, really annoying
Feb 19 9:26pm @2.1.9 "..." agreed
Feb 19 9:26pm @2.1.8 She seems to be acting that way.
Feb 19 9:21pm @4.1.2 It brought the teacher out in me, LOL!
Feb 19 9:20pm @2.1.2 So true. She's really a nice lady and I think the moderators abuse that. Whoa.. Warren again. She's in a freakishly bad mood
Feb 19 9:19pm @4.1 Yeah, that was really nasty. Kind of shocking. I thought it would be a bit more diplomatic between them.
Feb 19 9:14pm @2.1 Bernie took a cheap shot at Buttigieg and he gave back in kind.

I have begun my research in earnest in regards to the candidates.  I like to gather as much information on all the contenders and pretenders. I still have not found anyone I can throw my support behind completely.  I am tired of the "lesser than 2 evils" approach that has become our Presidential Elections.  What do you all think of Mike Bloomberg?   Who is the front runner for you?
Feb 20 4:30pm @7.1 I don't agree. Hillary almost won had she done her due diligence. It's these two women that I am not sure of. I do like Klobuchar because she is so normal, but that doesn't seem to sell. But only...
Feb 20 4:27pm @5.1.1 Ditto.
Feb 20 4:27pm @4.1.1 I have to agree with that, but on the dick scale, the front runners were the worst. 
Feb 19 1:20pm @4 My first choice is Bloomberg, second choice is Amy Klobuchar and then Mayor Pete. I am looking forward to this debate. Things should get very interesting.

Democratic Choice Down To Four

The Democratic candidate for president should come from the following, and I think it will.   Joe Biden Amy Klobuchar Elizabeth Warren Pete Buttigieg.  These four have the political mettle and the ideological balance to beat Donald Trump. Going by what we saw in the debate in Nevada last night, all four of these are more than capable of standing up to Trump's bullying and lies....

Suddenly, Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign is being taken seriously. For months, the Vermont senator was written off by Democratic Party insiders as a candidate with a committed but narrow base who was too far left to win the primary. Elizabeth Warren had skyrocketed in the polls and seemed to be leaving him behind in the race to be progressive voters’ standard-bearer in 2020....

The Company That Botched the Iowa Caucus Was Formed Only Months Ago

Looks like the technology is going to take the fall for the problems with the Iowa caucus.   Apparently the new app was built by a startup company that did not properly test the system.   The counting worked, but the reporting had a bug that did not account for all votes.    Major failure for all involved who did not properly roll-out and seriously test the app and the broader ground system of...

Trump hits highest Gallup approval rating of his presidency

President Trump 's approval rating hit 49 percent in a new Gallup poll released Tuesday, his highest mark in that poll since he took office. The  poll , released on the eve of a likely Senate vote to acquit him on impeachment charges and at the outset of an election year, found 50 percent of those surveyed disapprove of Trump's job performance. Just 1 percent of respondents said they...

Feb 04 3:23pm @5.1.58 "..." First of all, I am tired of being called out by you.  I am criticizing Sanders because there is a chance that I can get a candidate I can get behind. Trump is a fait accompli. There is not...
Feb 04 2:55pm @5.1.48 You have a short memory my friend. Even then the Republican party didn't want Trump when he first came down the escalator. The difference is that the Republicans sucked it up, when he became the...
Feb 04 1:54pm @5.1.28 Libertarians have a specific ideology that I can't get on board with. I would rather have a moderate party. One that could bring unification. 
Feb 04 1:50pm @5.1.24 No one is making excuses for him. I am utterly confused at where John would come up with that.
Feb 04 12:58pm @5.1.10 It's really about making the indies and moderates the fall guys if Trump wins.

Chuck Todd told a Biden surrogate that if he doesnt finish in the top two in Iowa tonight , his campaign is in trouble. Todd told a Sanders surrogate that is he doesnt win (come in first) in either Iowa of New Hampshire Sanders is toast.  People like Todd say there are a limited number of "tickets" out of Iowa and if you dont win one of those tickets you might as well fold.  All this...
Feb 04 12:12pm @3.1.17 "..." No, he is just part of Trump's legal team.  And maybe you missed it, but Bloomberg said it was a mistake. 
Feb 04 11:15am @7.1.5 Dean, You are joking, right?
Feb 04 11:13am @3.1.15 He kept the city calm and was very unifying, under a very stressful situation. He took command of the cleanup, and kept everyone informed. If only the EPA didn't lie to us about the actual...
Feb 04 11:11am @3.1.14 It wasn't only people with dark skin. It was suspicious activity. And who is the "he", since both Giuliani and Bloomberg used it? 
Feb 04 1:25am @4.4.1 You seem to forget that they had David Gregory, who was a very fair man, but no one could take to him because he followed Tim. I wouldn't want MTP to end, but Todd is no Russert.

Feb 03 10:18pm @6 Here is the deal. This is one state. It isn't even a big state. It doesn't even represent the American population. What is the big deal with this state? I even heard caucus members joking that...
Feb 03 10:09pm @4.1.1 We all miss Tim. 
Feb 03 10:08pm @4.3 I agree with you there, Dean.
Feb 03 10:08pm @3.1.1 Oh come on. Both parties are about the money? How else can they exist? In any case that is not what this article is about.

Where would I start? So many to choose from... I have a very eclectic taste in music; it ranges from Abba to Whodini and beyond. I can go for some of that old time religious and on to some of that zydeco music in a heartbeat.  My mood determines what I listen to, and very few things have I found that I don't really care for. I don't really like hard core Gangster Rap, but if I ignore the...

In a major shift, the Democratic National Committee will eliminate the requirement that candidates to show evidence of grass-roots support. COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — The Democratic National Committee has opened the door to allowing former Mayor   Michael R. Bloomberg   of New York to participate in the presidential debate it will sponsor in Nevada next month, a change from its practice...

Feb 01 11:03pm @4.2.2 "..." No I think it's because just about anyone can run for President under any party tent. You seem to forget that Trump was not a Republican either.  "..." Our economy is a house of cards...
Feb 01 10:54pm @3.1.2 He is not anti-gun and I am sure he will explain his POV.  That is the bill of goods that the NRA is selling. 
Feb 01 10:53pm @2.2.4 Sorry about that. 
Feb 01 10:50pm @1.2.8 I doubt that. But glad to see you haven't lost your sense of humor.
Feb 01 5:27pm @4.3 Please the RNC did the same thing to Trump during the last election. How quickly we forget 
Feb 01 3:07pm @1.2.5 Exactly!
Feb 01 3:04pm @4.1.1 I think the DNC is doing what they think is in their best interest. Anyway, I want to hear what he stands for and debate. What are people scared about?
Feb 01 3:02pm @4.2 LMAO, like you care about Bernie. In fact, you were counting on Bernie, so that Trump can win.
Feb 01 3:02pm @3.1 Again, Bloomberg is not Hillary.... He's already gone to more places than she did. He was just a middle class out of work guy when he came up with an idea that made him billions as opposed to Trump...
Feb 01 2:59pm @2.2.1 Which has nothing to do with this discussion.
Feb 01 2:57pm @1.2.3 "..." LMAO, talking about lying while supporting Trump. Now that is funny. Bloomberg doesn't lie. He owns his actions. That is why people loved him in NYC.
Feb 01 2:54pm @1.1.1 It always amazes me that you can't see that Trump did the same thing you are claiming that Bloomberg did.  Comparing him to Hillary is just silly.

Feb 01 10:46pm @12.1 Actually Sean, you kind of hit the nail on the head as to what happened. I wouldn't use the word "elites". It seems these days that having a brain is something to put down.

Feb 01 12:46pm @2.1 They are mixed. My uncle and aunt are Brexit but their children are remainers. It seems the younger generation saw the benefit of being in the EU, and by younger I mean 35-47.
