Is the Coronavirus the Silver Bullet to Bring Down President Trump? (Opinion)

Worth looking in to…

Published

on

The Democrats and the mainstream news media are suggesting that President Trump is responsible for the outbreak of the coronavirus that will come to America as a pandemic. In fact, Joe Biden slammed Trump’s response to the coronavirus epidemic saying, “This is no time for “fearmongering“. The Democrats were unsparing in their criticism, with Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (NY) saying the administration was showing “towering and dangerous incompetence” in its response to the virus. Schumer called for at least $8.5 billion in funding and for the administration to appoint a czar to oversee the response.

Readers, keep your masks on and take a deep breath. Now that you have done that, we need to look at the problem by the numbers and see if the media and the Democrats are purposely trying to frighten Americans into a full-blown panic. 

The numbers do not support the Democrat’s contentions of a pandemic coming to America. If the Democrats genuinely believed that one was coming, shouldn’t they support the closing of the border? Shouldn’t America be like other nations and add more significant restrictions of travel to and from countries that have the coronavirus? But they will not go that far. Schumer only wants to spend $8.5 billion and add a new czar to run the program to protect America.

Getting back to the numbers, various strains of the flu have been with us for a long time. It comes in the fall and winter and leaves in the spring. Here are the coronavirus numbers as of this writing: 80,000 people on a global scale have been identified as having the virus, and around 2,800 people have died.

Flu seasons come and go every year; some are worse than others.

The United States numbers from the Center for Disease Control as of October 1, 2019, to February 15, 2020 are:

-How many people have been infected with the current flu virus: 29,000,000 to 41,000,000.
-How many people went to the doctor: 13,000,000 to 19,000,000.
-How many had to go to the hospital: 280,000 to 500,000.
-How many people have died as a result of having the flu virus: 16,000 to 41,000.
 
IMPORTANT: NONE OF THESE NUMBERS REFLECT THE CORONAVIRUS.

Based on the reported global numbers for the coronavirus, the mortality rate is 3.5%. If we look at the United States, we see the high end of deaths compared to the number of people affected is just 1%. Now, let’s look at the numbers for China in which 80,000 people are infected out of a population of 1.4 billion, or just a tiny fraction of one percent. The death rate is almost unmeasurable because it would be 5 zeros after the decimal point. 

These numbers do not support the contention of some medical experts who are predicting a pandemic coming to America. To add an additional perspective, the World Health Organization reported this month that in a typical flu season across the globe about one billion people catch influenza every year, with between 290,000 to 650,000 deaths. And the severity of flu changes every year.

The world has a long way to go to reach a pandemic level with the coronavirus. 

Perkins Twist: What country in the world is the best equipped and experienced to handle a pandemic? China, if we can believe them, they had public health issues in just trying to treat 75,000 of their citizens. On the other hand, our public health system in four and one-half months handled upwards of 41 million people infected with the flu virus. China had to build temporary hospitals, while we had 500,000 people treated in American hospitals during this period of time. So, here is the big question: where would you like to be if you came down with the CORONAVIRUS: under General Secretary Xi Jinping or President Donald Trump? One more question: if the Democrats still can’t count the 171,517 people who voted in the Iowa caucuses, then how can we trust, if elected, that they can run an effort to fight the coronavirus?

Trump Supporters Are Racists & ‘White Supremacists,’ Says Democrat Senator (Video)

What a silly thing to say!

Not enough people come out and say what needs to be said: Democrats are actively trying to kill the United States of America – period. There’s no two ways around it. Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono is one of the more obnoxious members of Congress, and possibly just as ignorant as Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and AOC. On Monday, Hirono made a vile comment about Trump supporters. And she likely won’t face any push back, whatsoever. VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHG_u-p15CQ&feature=emb_title Even when Congressional liberals let it slip that impeaching President Trump is all about preventing him from winning re-election, the media doesn’t care. Is that an issue? Sure. But at the end of the day, the public isn’t stupid. They can see that Dems have cheapened the impeachment process for political gain – and it should come back to bite them sooner rather than later. Check out Hawaii Senator Mazie Hirono (D). She made it clear that there is “tremendous fear” Trump will win in November if he’s not kicked out of office before then.

Mazie Hirono (D-HI) claimed on Wednesday that members of White House under President Donald Trump’s administration brainstorm daily on new ways to harm illegal immigrants. Hirono said, “I think that the Trump Administration people sit around every single day thinking of new ways to be cruel to these migrants. That’s what they do and tomorrow they will probably come up with something else.” She added, “These families should not be detained and that’s the bottom line, and so we’re now contemplating thousands and thousands of migrant families being detained, doing irreparable harm to little children. When I was in Dilley, we can’t forget seeing in one of…

NBA Store Refusing to Let People Make Customizable Jerseys That Read ‘FreeHongKong’

‘Defund Police’ is okay, though…

The NBA is heavily dependent on China. The communist nation has as many basketball fans as the United States has people. And if it don’t make dollars, it don’t make sense. But at what cost? From Daily Wire: The National Basketball Association’s online store blocked people from being able to order customizable jerseys that featured “FreeHongKong” as the name on the back of the Jersey. Sports commentator Clay Travis posted a video to Twitter that showed the NBA blocking the jersey when the name entered was “FreeHongKong” but not when the name was “FreeHongKonu” thus showing that it had nothing to do with the number of characters on the jersey.
