This the same The Federalist that had an entire section of their website called Black Crime? And the same The Federalist who told people to have Coronavirus parties to spread the disease to create herd immunity against all medical professionals warnings?

No one should be clicking on any of their stuff.

Who are “you liberals”? What are you talking about? Are you so simple that you need to divide the world into two groups of people to make sense of it? All he said was the federalist is trash, which it is. Good grief.

You like the Federalist? You are defending the Federalist as a legitimate news source?

When you see everything as Trump vs. the world, you assume that anything that is bad for Trump is good for those who didn't vote for him and don't support him. Big Bill Fan clearly thinks this way and is incapable of seeing reality because of it. The reality is that no one is gloating and this sucks for everyone.

Trump had a chance to make the response to this apolitical and unifying. Instead, he chose to ignore it, then deny it, then downplay it. He made it about himself and treated it initially as a political inconvenience and a threat to the economy - and therefore a threat to his reelection chances because he's tied his entire presidency to the success of the stock market.

In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, Bush's approval rating surpassed 90%. His immediate response was about coming together to deal with something terrible we'd never experienced before. Had Trump done the same, his approval rating would be double what it currently is.

But that isn't what he did and we're dealing with the effects of that. This is what happens when the president is a malignant narcissist obsessed with undoing the work of his predecessor (a pandemic response team seems like something that would come in handy right about now, for example), and who has surrounded himself with grifters and yes men instead of competent, experienced professionals.

This isn't complicated. It all happened right out in the open.

Pistol, 

You are an impressive person. Your work on recruiting, your interview on THTRB, and this bit of prose are dynamically great. Thanks for expressing it so well. 🤠 Hat tip to you, Sir.

Who are you liberals? For starters, how about the bunch that does nothing but complain and distort what the president does. I was responding to an attack from alaman who claimed that fox news and the Washington Times were equivalent to Pravda...WHERE WAS YOUR OUTRAGE OVER THAT STATEMENT ? I was simply making the point that those who make blanket statements that can be easily refuted with a simple Google search are foolish. That article was just an example of that. That's another characteristic of a liberal...wild reckless statements...and when they get called out for them resort to attacks.

HenryB, here is a serious question for you.

Do you believe that President Trump, or Dr. Fauci, has been more truthful when talking about the corona epidemic in the U.S.?

cliff that is a stupid question and loaded for an emotional fight.    who are any of us to know at this point.   after everything is said and done then MAYBE that can be opined intelligently.   until then, it is only a question to poor gasoline on this futile discussion.   very disappointed you even asked.

I think they have both been far more truthful than the liberal media and a number of people on this board. Fauci and Trump have been very complimentary of each other.

Let's talk about truth. I will declare I was wrong with my estimate of total deaths for this epidemic when the death toll surpasses 26,000. Until then I stand firm with this number. Please note that my number is probably the lowest of them all. If I am wrong I will promptly accept it. I think everybody should do something like this.

I am sad to notice that the Federal government just put in an order for 100,000 additional body bags. I presume they already have a fair number of body bags at hand. This fact does not support a happier ending like the one in my prediction.

there is already talk of inquiries and after action investigations. i hope they are for making future action plans better and not used for political capital

They've certainly been very complimentary of each other. We've all seen far too much of the constant self-congratulations. 

More importantly. Have they been complementary?

you're nothing but a partisan hack and an elitist snob.....you have espoused your liberal bull**** numerous times on this board and are outraged if anyone dares to differ with you....stop your crap that Trump is making this political....Nancy Pelosi has already been running her mouth that Trump has blood on his hands, and your piece of crap Adam Schiff, is already threatening impeachment proceedings, again....you're as political as they get....it's amazing how insecure you are....as you said, this isn't complicated.....you're not near as bright as you think you are..........you have the gift of always talking down to people you don't agree with......

 

and lastly, let's make this clear....no one on this board started this crap by praising Trump, it was you emboldened leftist who initiated the attacks (as is always the case)....you, however think his supporters should just shut their mouths and never respond....as I've said before, we went through 8 years of a poor President with no threads on this board...why is that?????   Oh, and since this crisis was so obvious, according to you, why weren't you urging Billiken Fans to stay home during January and February??????? are you that heartless that you didn't want to save lives??????

You don't like name calling and want people to act Christian like, so maybe you should look in the mirror.

I've been on here 1/2 a decade or so never got the feeling Pistol was one way or the other, certainly not as overt as BBF.  Just another straight thinking poster.

I tried to find a video with Dr. Trentacosta doing this, but we just have to style with someone who no one on the board knows, an Oxford math professor.

He talks about the model the U of Washington IMHE is using to forecast Covid in the US.

The numbers are jumping around daily because they use daily data, run it for each state, and sum the Projections.

Hey, some good news, it may only take 5 months to get your stimulus check.  The Trump Administration is truly the Tiger King of governance.  Just when you think it can't get worse...

SIAP

Last night, Laura Ingraham had a very interesting (and hopeful) update related to the much discussed chloroquine combo treatment. Linked below for those who are looking for something other than doom and gloom. Yes, warning...it was on Fox News.

Classic example of taking reports out of context and trying to emphasize the negative. The truth is that over 60 million are expected to receive checks by mid April.

what is sad is that more americans are worried about this relatively small check rather than the state of the overall economy.    that is likely because most americans live pay check to pay check.

Ummm, it says in that article that "paper" checks won't be distributed until after direct deposit. 

"After the direct deposit round is complete, the IRS will begin to send out paper checks around the beginning of May, according to the memo."

"The office that sends out the paper checks can process nearly 5 million checks per week. Meaning that it could take 20 weeks - almost 5 months - to get every check mailed."
