Is There A Vaccine For Trump Derangement Syndrome?
The Chinese flu is an unprecedented bad news event in my lifetime – a life that has witnessed major assassinations, nationwide riots, 9/11, and that YouTube song about it being Friday. It took a minute, but Trump – somehow still alert and elastic – has adapted to the crisis. But not the press. From them, the same old hate just keeps on coming. Trump seems so far to have done what can be done in these situations.

Trump derangement syndrome is a clear and present danger to the the American people and to America itself.  It has clearly afflicted the lamestream media and it’s democrat party masters.  The hate directed at our President during this crisis is un American.  The lies they’ve told about our heroic war time President are to numerous to track.  Our President is doing a great job fighting this China virus.  


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


After the primaries this week, I was watching Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. I’ve reached an age where I’ve seen just about everything and very little surprises me. But I confess myself… well, let’s say appalled that any sentient creature above the level of a jellyfish would vote for either of these men for president.

Because I have leftist friends and relatives, I know there are some on the Left who have drained the Kool Aid to the very dregs. They tell me they only hope they can die before climate change turns the earth into Mad Max: Fury Road. They have their fingers crossed that Joe Biden will pick a high quality vice presidential candidate like – wait for it – Stacey Abrams! And until the moment the stock market tanked, they actually believed the incompetent Barack Obama was responsible for the Trump economy.

So yes, I’ve witnessed with my own weary eyes the toxic effects of reading The New York Times as if it were still a newspaper. I’ve seen what that stuff can do to the human mind and it’s not pretty.

But Bernie Sanders? Joe Biden? Really? I know better than to think human stupidity has a bottom. All the same: appalled.

Sanders, at this point, looks like an unindicted co-conspirator in the Rosenberg case. He’s a radical visionary with his eyes on the far horizon – only it’s a horizon forty years behind him, back when all his ideas failed. As I write this, Bernie seems to be contemplating pulling out of the race. Still. The people who cheered him on must be the same young people who are still crowding the bars and beaches, saying, “Dude, I’m not letting this stupid flu thing get in the way of the party.”

As for Biden, he looks like the 1950’s neighbor who waves to you from his driveway before climbing into his Nash Rambler so he can pretend to go to a job he was fired from three weeks ago. Dazed and dead inside after a political life empty of principle, he really should be sitting in a rocker wistfully wondering where the time went. It would be touching to watch his wife gently leading him offstage when he forgets where he is, if only I didn’t hear reporters and other Democrat propagandists saying things like, “When I look at Joe, I see a president.” It’s a shocking con.

People keep asking how the field narrowed to these two old white men. It’s simple. They are perfect symbols of a party without a single new idea.

And the moral flea circus we call American journalism is right there with them.

The Chinese flu is an unprecedented bad news event in my lifetime – a life that has witnessed major assassinations, nationwide riots, 9/11, and that YouTube song about it being Friday. It took a minute, but Trump – somehow still alert and elastic – has adapted to the crisis. But not the press. From them, the same old hate just keeps on coming.

Trump seems so far to have done what can be done in these situations. The tests were slow, but the fault was with the very regulatory system he has tried to diminish. And he said a few flippant things at the beginning, but he’s Trump, so what? His decisive move to shut down travel from China saved lives while the media complained, and he seems to have good experts to whom he’s listening. And Vice President Mensch has lived up to his name, or at least the name I call him.

But the press continues to lie about Trump shamelessly. He called the virus a hoax. [Narrator: He didn’t.] He told the states to go it alone. [Nope.] He’s racist because he calls it the Chinese flu. [It comes from China and the Chinese let it spread before they told anyone and then tried to blame it on us.] And this isn’t fake news from some crap lunatic outlet like CNN or NBC. This stuff has been in the Times and The Washington Post – which then also run stories accusing Trump of dishonesty without even seeing the irony.

It won’t stop, but it really should. It’s disgraceful at a time when we need our leaders to lead and our reporters to report. I’m not saying they can’t criticize or disagree with the man. I’m not even saying they have to like him.

But after all the warnings that Trump would seize on any disaster to morph himself into Hitler (he hasn’t), after all the attacks on his border policy (which turns out to be just good sense), after all the fretting about his xenophobia (which was not xenophobia at all but wisdom about the errors of globalism), it’s time for the news bosses to either find a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome or force the infected to shelter in place.

After that, they can simply apologize to the president, and move on.

When their hatred is so deeply ingrained to the very core of their being, not hating the man would effectively make their lives meaningless.  Their hatred sustains them to the detriment of any and all others, including themselves.

THESE TRUTHS:

He called the virus a hoax.

Nope.  He called the Democrats BS the hoax.

He told the states to go it alone. [Nope.]

Hardly.  He told states to do what they could to AVOID the federal bureaucracy.  He knows states can act so much quicker than the feds, much like towns and cities can act much quicker than states.

The feds would be there but it takes time to accomplish what they could likely get done quicker themselves.

By the way, the Governors of both New York (sound familiar?) and California have thanked Trump for his help and actions.  I guess they know a little more than EITHER of us!

He’s racist because he calls it the Chinese flu. [It comes from China and the Chinese let it spread before they told anyone and then tried to blame it on us.]

When all else fails, pull out the race card.  Actually, they called it xenophobic as he closed the borders to Chinese travel since they were badly infected and in fact the European countries that did not do that are suffering greatly today.  Much worse than we are.

And this isn’t fake news from some crap lunatic outlet like CNN or NBC. This stuff has been in the Times and The Washington Post – which then also run stories accusing Trump of dishonesty without even seeing the irony.

It's neither the same, nor is it worse. The media keeps saying Trump downplayed the virus and it cost lives. Not only is the downplayed part not true, there is no way to say that Trump got anyone killed. Also no comparison is made, either to a specific alternative or even an ideal standard. It's not thoughtful criticism. It's arbitrary hate.

This article is specific in pointing out the lies.

Beyond that, the attacks on the Democrats are very broad, but at least he doesn't accuse them of something horrible (like exacerbating a pandemic) without evidence to support it.

And this is antisemtic:

The comparison is because the Rosenbergs were communist spies, not because they were Jewish.

He did. Want a video?

btw.. that is from a British publication so you can't call it partisan. And I have not read anywhere that Trump is the reason for deaths here in America, just that the delay is making it harder to flatten the curve.

This article is specific in pointing out the lies.

And then making it's own like its comments about Biden.

The comparison is because the Rosenbergs were communist spies, not because they were Jewish.

OK, you too need to educate yourself about the Rosenbergs and antisemitism.

Regardless, i find it extremely difficult to believe that honestly unbiased folks haven't at least recognized a clear anti Trump bias in the mass media as it is pervasive as hell.   The selective reporting and comments reported out of context are copious.   Only a few of which were highlighted here by XD.

And if you really want to see how uneven it is, how much are Bidens abundant gaffes reported in the mass media as opposed to Trumps or even Trumps gaffes that were perceived only?   Biden is clearly having regular trouble and they rarely get the coverage Trump gets.   Anyone can see that and yet when even a hint of trouble like that shows up with Trump, the mass media jumps on it salivating.

Heck i seem to recall many jumping on the anti Trump bandwagon on a simple misspelled word on a tweet.

Covfefe for coverage i believe .......

Well said.  The bias and double standard of the mainstream media are clear for all who aren’t deliberately self blinded to see.  And the hatred of him by the democrat party and many individuals within is beyond reason or rationality.  The never Trumpers who still claim to be conservatives or GOP are the worst of all though as they are too butt hurt by their loss of power within the party, and yes mr Wilson and mr Fitzpatrick I’m talking about you.

Perrie, there is no such thing as Trump Derangement Syndrome.  It is a farcical term used by the right to make excuses for Trump.  Is there a Bernie Madoff Derangement Syndrome? Is there a Harvey Weinstein Derangement Syndrome?  Of course not, they would be ridiculous.  "Trump Derangement Syndrome" is ridiculous too. 

When you say there is such a thing as TDS, you are taking a step towards normalizing Donald Trump. Is that really what you want to do? 

A couple months ago you deleted (ticketed) comments where a Trump supporter on this site suggested another member had TDS.  

Now you are saying it actually is a thing?  How do you explain this? 

Are we supposed to measure criticism of this ridiculous, absurd presidency so as to fall into the parameters of being "fair" to BOTH SIDES ?

The "Spanish Flu" ( a member of the H1N1 virus aka "swine flu") was "named Spanish" due to the horrendeous numbers of people in Spain that died from it.  Some estimates put it at almost half of the global deaths.  

We have also had the "Asian Flu", "Hong Kong flu", 2009/2010 H1N1 (aka Swine flu, but called by Obama by the 'official name' to placate hog farmers here in the states), "Bird flu", and a plethora of other bugs that went by informal names since most people don't really care about formal identifiers.

But, since it DID originate in Wuhan Province in the Peoples Republic of China (aka Communist China), I believe people really need to remember that.  China is not a friend of the world and is out for one thing and one thing only, the Communist Party (above all else) of China.  I think it's a marvelous identifier.

Yet on the same stage, the head of the NIH, Anthony Fauchi, MD, is calling it Covid 19, because... and wait for it.. that is it's designation.

The "Spanish Flu" ( a member of the H1N1 virus aka "swine flu") was "named Spanish" due to the horrendeous numbers of people in Spain that died from it.

And yet, it came from Kansas.

From the Wichita Eagle:  The virus began on the windswept Kansas prairie, where dirt-poor farm families struggled to do daily chores — slopping pigs, feeding cattle, horses, and chickens, living in primitive, cramped, uninsulated quarters. It’s not known whether it started in the pigs or chickens or birds flying overhead. But it spread to young farmers who, drafted for World War I, reported for duty at Fort Riley.

But, since it DID originate in Wuhan Province in the Peoples Republic of China (aka Communist China), I believe people really need to remember that.

Everyone knows the strain originated in China, but it evolved in nature. It had nothing to do with geopolitics.

China is not a friend of the world and is out for one thing and one thing only, the Communist Party (above all else) of China.  I think it's a marvelous identifier.

The Chinese flu? A marvelous identifier? It's not even an influenza virus. And, again, it's biological, not geopolitical.

Well it seems to have worked as China seems to be backing down from blaming us for this pandemic.  Thanks to Trump calling them out repeatedly:

The State Department backed up China’s Ambassador to the U.S. Cui Tiankai for calling the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s coronavirus conspiracy that the U.S. Army was responsible for the virus’ outbreak in Wuhan a “crazy thing.”

“We welcome Ambassador Cui's comments calling the Chinese Foreign Ministry's statement a 'crazy thing' that blamed the U.S. Army for the #coronavirus  outbreak in Wuhan,” tweeted State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus. “Saving lives is more important than saving face.”  “There are people who are saying that these virus are coming from some military lab, not of China, maybe in the United States,” Cui said in an interview with CBS’ “ Face the Nation ," adding: “How -- how can we believe all these crazy things?”

Cui called the idea “crazy” even before the spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zhao Lijian,  began promoting  the conspiracy.

But even after the idea that the U.S. military was responsible for the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan was state-sponsored, Cui stood by his comments, calling such an idea “crazy.”

"That's my position then and that's my position now,” Cui said in an interview with  Axios  that aired Sunday.

The Trump administration was outraged by the idea that the U.S. could be blamed for the global pandemic. President Trump, in retaliation, shifted gears and began calling COVID-19 the “Chinese Virus” to call to mind the virus’ origin. The State Department even called Cui in to take him to task.

IN CORONAVIRUS FIGHT, CHINA HASN'T STOPPED PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS: WATCHDOG 

When asked if Zhao speaks for the Chinese government, Cui responded: "I am the representative of China in the United States."

After Ortagus' statement, Zhao changed tune and said on Twitter the world "explicitly opposes linking #COVID19 with any specific country or region. It is not the time to blame one another with terms like 'Chinese Virus.'" https://www.foxnews.com/politics/state-department-responds-chinese-ambassador-says-crazy-blame-coronavirus-us-military

The same Klavan article as seeded from the daily wire:  

KLAVAN: Is There A Vaccine For Trump Derangement Syndrome?

Andrew Klavan March 22nd, 2020

After the primaries this week, I was watching Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. I’ve reached an age where I’ve seen just about everything and very little surprises me. But I confess myself… well, let’s say appalled that any sentient creature above the level of a jellyfish would vote for either of these men for president.

Because I have leftist friends and relatives, I know there are some on the Left who have drained the Kool Aid to the very dregs. They tell me they only hope they can die before climate change turns the earth into Mad Max: Fury Road. They have their fingers crossed that Joe Biden will pick a high quality vice presidential candidate like – wait for it – Stacey Abrams! And until the moment the stock market tanked, they actually believed the incompetent Barack Obama was responsible for the Trump economy.

So yes, I’ve witnessed with my own weary eyes the toxic effects of reading The New York Times as if it were still a newspaper. I’ve seen what that stuff can do to the human mind and it’s not pretty.

But Bernie Sanders? Joe Biden? Really? I know better than to think human stupidity has a bottom. All the same: appalled.

Sanders, at this point, looks like an unindicted co-conspirator in the Rosenberg case. He’s a radical visionary with his eyes on the far horizon – only it’s a horizon forty years behind him, back when all his ideas failed. As I write this, Bernie seems to be contemplating pulling out of the race. Still. The people who cheered him on must be the same young people who are still crowding the bars and beaches, saying, “Dude, I’m not letting this stupid flu thing get in the way of the party.”

As for Biden, he looks like the 1950’s neighbor who waves to you from his driveway before climbing into his Nash Rambler so he can pretend to go to a job he was fired from three weeks ago. Dazed and dead inside after a political life empty of principle, he really should be sitting in a rocker wistfully wondering where the time went. It would be touching to watch his wife gently leading him offstage when he forgets where he is, if only I didn’t hear reporters and other Democrat propagandists saying things like, “When I look at Joe, I see a president.” It’s a shocking con.

People keep asking how the field narrowed to these two old white men. It’s simple. They are perfect symbols of a party without a single new idea.

And the moral flea circus we call American journalism is right there with them.

The Chinese flu is an unprecedented bad news event in my lifetime – a life that has witnessed major assassinations, nationwide riots, 9/11, and that YouTube song about it being Friday. It took a minute, but Trump – somehow still alert and elastic – has adapted to the crisis. But not the press. From them, the same old hate just keeps on coming.

Trump seems so far to have done what can be done in these situations. The tests were slow, but the fault was with the very regulatory system he has tried to diminish. And he said a few flippant things at the beginning, but he’s Trump, so what? His decisive move to shut down travel from China saved lives while the media complained, and he seems to have good experts to whom he’s listening. And Vice President Mensch has lived up to his name, or at least the name I call him.

But the press continues to lie about Trump shamelessly. He called the virus a hoax. [Narrator: He didn’t.] He told the states to go it alone. [Nope.] He’s racist because he calls it the Chinese flu. [It comes from China and the Chinese let it spread before they told anyone and then tried to blame it on us.] And this isn’t fake news from some crap lunatic outlet like CNN or NBC. This stuff has been in the Times and The Washington Post – which then also run stories accusing Trump of dishonesty without even seeing the irony.

It won’t stop, but it really should. It’s disgraceful at a time when we need our leaders to lead and our reporters to report. I’m not saying they can’t criticize or disagree with the man. I’m not even saying they have to like him.

But after all the warnings that Trump would seize on any disaster to morph himself into Hitler (he hasn’t), after all the attacks on his border policy (which turns out to be just good sense), after all the fretting about his xenophobia (which was not xenophobia at all but wisdom about the errors of globalism), it’s time for the news bosses to either find a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome or force the infected to shelter in place.

After that, they can simply apologize to the president, and move on.  https://www.dailywire.com/news/klavan-is-there-a-vaccine-for-trump-derangement-syndrome

Deal reached on $2-trillion coronavirus stimulus bill — largest by far in U.S. history

Sarah D. Wire
?url=https%3A%2F%2Fca-times.brightspotcd Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin made frequent trips between the offices of Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and Democratic leader Charles E. Schumer for final negotiations Tuesday.   (Associated Press)

After haggling for days of over the final details, Senate Democrats and the White House agreed Tuesday to a nearly $2-trillion stimulus package to combat the economic fallout of the coronavirus outbreak, including direct payments to most Americans and a half-trillion-dollar fund to shore up struggling companies.

The stimulus bill — by far the largest ever proposed — comes with a price tag equivalent to 9% of the nation's gross domestic product and is meant to provide direct financial aid to help individuals, hospitals and businesses. It includes $300 billion for small businesses, $150 billion for local and state governments and $130 billion for hospitals, according to those involved in the negotiations.

Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) negotiated through Monday night and all day Tuesday to resolve outstanding issues.

A Senate vote on the deal could occur quickly, with the House potentially following soon after.

House members have not returned from their scheduled recess, and remote voting is not allowed under House rules. Pelosi indicated Tuesday that the fastest way for the House to approve the Senate bill would be by unanimous consent, a tactic generally reserved for small, noncontroversial legislation. It requires the consent of all current 430 House members, meaning a single representative could object, as long as he or she was on the floor to do so.

If that happens, Pelosi said she would probably need to call back the entire chamber for an in-person vote, a more time-consuming process that would also raise health risks and logistical challenges for members. It could also lead to potential changes to the legislation that would have to be reconciled with the Senate.

Despite the  unusually bitter partisan bickering Monday on the Senate floor , Pelosi said earlier in the day that the final bill would represent a solid compromise between Senate Republicans -- who crafted the initial draft with Democrat input-- and Democrats, who delayed passage to ensure it included more of their priorities. "We think the bill has moved sufficiently to the side of workers," she said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky) appeared to leave the final negotiations to Schumer and Mnuchin, though the Treasury Secretary made frequent trips between the leaders' offices Tuesday.

The measure is the third stimulus bill proposed by Congress to address the economic and social disruptions of the pandemic. It follows an  initial $8.3 billion measure largely aimed at developing a vaccine  and a second package, passed last week,  that mandated greater access to paid sick leave for workers and free COVID-19 testing.

The latest $2 trillion stimulus bill is expected to include direct payments of $1,200 or less to most adults, loans to businesses and an expansion of unemployment insurance and other aspects of the social safety net. It comes at a time when millions of Americans have been asked to stay away from school and work, and remain inside their homes to reduce the spread of the disease.

The amounts of the one time payments, which officials hope could go out to Americans as soon as early April, will be based on income reported in 2018 taxes, declining gradually beginning with individuals who made $75,000 or married couples filed jointly who made $150,000. Individuals making $99,000 or above, or married couples making $198,000 or more would receive no check. People would also receive an additional $500 per child.

Schumer said negotiators agreed to put “unemployment insurance on steroids” by expanding those covered to include people who are furloughed, gig workers and freelancers, and by increasing the payments by $600 dollars per week for four months, on top of what states provide as a base unemployment compensation.

“It will put money into the hands of those who need it so much, because they have lost their jobs through no fault of their own,” Schumer said.

Other changes to the final bill included increased oversight of the $500-billion fund managed by the Treasury to shore up struggling businesses through loans and loan guarantees. Recipients are expected to include airlines and other hard hit travel sectors.

A major sticking point for Democrats, the initial proposal gave Treasury latitude to disburse the funds, including the discretion not to disclose for up to six months which companies got taxpayer dollars.

The final deal includes an inspector general to oversee the $500 billion fund, as well as a five-person congressional panel.

“We cannot have a situation where when a company is getting money from the Treasury, the Federal Reserve, that we don’t know about it,” Schumer said.

Others involved in negotiations said the deal also includes around $130 billion for hospitals dealing with a shortage in medical masks, ventilators and hospital beds ahead of an expected wave of cases -- a $25 billion increase from what was initially proposed. And it provides $150 billion directly to state and local governments dealing with the outbreak.

Stocks rose sharply in America and around the world Tuesday in anticipation of the infusion of aid into the U.S. economy. 

“If we get this package, we’ll be setting the stage for a good rebound in the second half of the year,” said Larry Kudlow, the White House’s top economic adviser. “That’s our thinking. This package will undergird workers and families, Main Street, small businesses.”
