Coronavirus: Don’t Panic

The good? A pandemic is not necessarily lethal. This one is not. All this needless panic, hoarding of personal items (why people have sold out toilet paper is beyond me) this overwhelming fear is not justified. Thus far only 60 old people and those suffering from serious illness have died. Florida alone had 100 die from the flu in January. Nobody under the age of 50 has died. 14,000 died from the flu in the USA 2019. Over 20,000 die annually in auto accidents. For the vast majority of those who have the virus recover from their flu like symptoms within a short time. America had 1,000 die from Swine flu before President Obama called for a national emergency. As of Monday morning: 3,813 U.S. reported cases. 60 deaths (40 in Washington State) making the death rate 1.5%. Remove Washington State death is .005%

The bad? It is highly congtagios. Science is still studying ways it is transmitted from person to person. Yes, it is still possible to be more serious. With more testing there will be more cases. But the death rate likely to go down because many will learn they have the virus and did’t know it. The core of all the disturbance from this coronavirus is fear of the unknown. Mass media is non stop on the issue because they are enjoying huge ratings. Plus, it is supposed to hurt President Trump. A poll just out from Minnesota overwhelmingly says Americans do not blame President Trump for the virus uproar.

Most Americans have heard about washing their hands and using sanitizer until they are blase’ about it. Some may have not heard…ventilate your homes, AC or open windows. Sterilize utensils. Do not seek a test if you have no symptoms. Washing hands with cold water makes no difference. If you have a fever, dry cough, some breathing shortness, fatigue (like the flu) and have tried medication with no success, only then call your doctor. Don’t just show up at a hospital emergency room. Follow doctors or health department instructions. And stay hydrated.

The reason for the massive problems in Europe now comes from them taking no precautions. A Cavelier atmosphere. European countries such as Italy allowed all China flights to continue. The Chinese love Italy. The single best thing President Trump did was in January he stopped all flights to and from China. China hated it and protested. Democrats cried terms of racist in origin. The cooperation now with business and government working together is a huge plus. A positive sign is China and South Korea reporting few new cases. The USA is in a “better safe than sorry” mode. Odds are we are in the middle of the crisis. A significant positive sign and the market will soar and Americans will likely feel it was all overblown.

There are a host of conspiracy theories surfacing. President Trump has badly hurt the China economy in his tariff trade deal. Some believe the virus was created on purpose. They have no regard for human life. A chance at hurting America. Perhaps a blackmail attempt to keep their drug manufacturing away from our nation. Forget it. China needs our business badly in their weakened economy. And, deep down, they know President Trump. In no way will he allow Americans to suffer from lack of Chinese made drugs. The administration already has plans on such measures and warned China. They have 80% of all prescribed medicine ingredients.

The administration will stop at nothing to protect Americans. World wide some country’s may snicker at the President’s ways. But, they respect him. And they know he will do whatever it takes to protect the USA. He can be unpredictable, a man of action and for that there is the element of fear. America comes first at all times for President Trump.

Joe Biden: Not Even the Nominee

Joe Biden will not be the Democrat nominee for President. It’s bad enough to have a scandal ridden son, brother and himself. It will be an issue. Over this week end…Joe Biden, “Unite! Democrat O’Biden Bama ticket.” “We cannot re elect…cannot win this re election…excuse me, we can only re elect…..” This is not only not electable it is sad pushing him into this long campaign. He cannot hide from his problem. His party, with him likely winning again Tuesday, and Warren dropping out, would be smart to keep him out of the next debate with Bernie Sanders. A strategy to save him from himself.

Democrats shocked the political world on Super Tuesday by essentially torpedoing the Bernie Sanders campaign and Michael Bloomberg to boot. Nobody but nobody saw this coming…including If anything, it was thought Bloomberg might put the knocks to Sanders. But, Biden? The man who called it Super Thursday. The man a week ago told his rally of 200 people he was running for the Senate. The man who on Tuesday night said he was hugging and introducing his sister when it was his wife he was hugging. Yes, that guy. A coalition of Party leaders (Afro American Congressman James Clyman was instrumental), candidate dropout endorsements from Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Beto O’Rourke and Democrat voters wanted no more of Bernie Sanders. A man saying sweet things about Fidel Castero. Senator Ted Cruz had a great line…”Yeah, Castro taught them to read and write before sending them to a firing squad.”

So what dos it all mean? True, Biden’s a nice guy. But winning the Presidency from Trump? Biden’s a guy who regularly mentions the wrong State he is campaigning in. This was more of a get rid of a socialist/communist than a historic triumph. As it stands now, Sanders is in a world of hurt. Although he did get Jesse Jackson’s endorsement As per norm, Sanders youthful followers failed to vote in mass. Liz Warren took votes from Sanders that could have changed the entire night for Sanders. Michael Bloomberg bowed out of the race Wednesday. One of the all time worse Presidential candidates. Coming Tuesday more critical primaries including no Florida hope for “Crazy Bernie” due to his Castro backing.

It is now a two man race. More than anything, Sanders needs a top notch showing in the next debate scheduled for March 15th. It might be smart for Biden’s camp to claim coronavirus for “old Joe” and have no debate. Or, better yet, Bernie debating himself. They need to keep Biden “under wraps” as much as possible. Keep him on a teleprompter (problematic too) and keep him away from extemporaneously talking at campaign stops. Sounds silly I realize. But, it’s close to being spot on true. There is no question Biden is having mental lapses more than the old Joe Democrats want to believe he still remains. It has become clear he is having mental issues. Or as Fox News Senior political analyst Brit Hume said Tuesday night…”He is becoming senile.” Two weeks ago Biden said he was arrested with Nelson Mandela in South Africa. And then took it all back. There was no truth to it. Over his 40 yr. career it is not the first time he made something up.

Biden wears down quickly campaigning. For him to make it until November is a tall order. Can’t resist the old adage….”He can run. But, he can’t hide.” However, if well protected and rested, it’s possible, but foolish, Biden could be the nominee of the Party. But, debating Trump? Latsa luck. Even if Sanders keeps Biden from the necessary majority to win the nomination, the second round of votes from so called Super delegates will make it a certainty. If Biden does make it through to November, Democrats already have other(s) ready to stand tall. Hillary would be thrilled. She’s waiting. Or possibly somebody out of no where. Maybe an earlier candidate such as Camilla Harris. Democrats are already working on a contingency.

So bet on a different Democrat Presidential nominee. Wait until the public sees commercials with Biden’s gaffe montage. Or the wacko policy issues he raised his hand for in the debates. As for his past record, the only Defense Secretary to serve two Presidents of opposite Parties… Robert Gates…”I think he (Joe Biden) has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” In spite of what you’d like to believe, he is not mentally fit to become President. If elected he would be a puppet President. it’s impossible to keep Biden totally isolated. The Obama’s and Clinton’s are working on a stand by substitute for Biden at the convention.

Bernie Sanders get nomination? Super Tuesday 3/3/20

The Democrat Party is going all out to stop Bernie Sanders from getting the Democrat nomination for President. Their leaders know he has little chance of beating President Trump. Forget Joe Biden’s So. Carolina win. He has no organization, little money and can hardly put two sentences together without stumbling. He won thanks to 50% of the voters being African American. His candidacy is on life support. Tuesday, March 3rd, is known as Super Tuesday as primaries are to be held all over the nation. 38% of all delegates to the convention will be elected. Of note: Tom Steyer, Pete Buttigieg and Amy Klobuchar have all dropped out of the race presumably to help gain some delegates for Biden.

Bernie Sanders is well financed and organized most everywhere. Especially in delegate rich California and Texas. He will do very well Tuesday. The question is how well. Here’s the nuts and bolts so to speak. The nominee needs 1991 pledged delegates to win the nomination. A key to stopping Sanders is how well mayor Michael Bloomberg does. And if Biden can win some delegates. Bloomberg, with millions to spare, purchased two three minutes commercials on major networks and was on 60 Minutes Sunday night. He is bland, no charisma and a terrible debating candidate. However Democrat insiders see him as their only hope, as of now, in stopping Sanders. Meaning nobody has enough votes to secure the nomination. That is likely. After one round of delegate votes with no winner, round two is when the super delegates vote (Party hacks) and likely could steal the nomination from Sanders. Then it is wide open to almost anybody including Hillary (yes, that is correct…she is standing by), Michelle Obama or anyone else the Party thinks has a chance of beating Trump. Quite a few think it will be awarded to Bloomberg. The Clinton’s and Obama’s will likely be instrumental in that process. Joe Biden has a slight chance…very slight. Pat Paulson and Professor Irwin Corey have no chance.

Meanwhile, President Trump held a South Carolina rally Friday night. It is worth noting 38.6% attending were Democrats and Independents. Plus 16% of African American Americans attended. Blacks, generally, want no part of Bernie Sanders. Sunday they turned their backs on Bloomberg as he spoke to an African American church. The night before Trump’s rally, attendees were camping out such as an NFL tailgate party. If the election is “stolen” from Sanders, his fanatical followers will vote in mass for Trump as in 2016 or not vote at all. If you ever watch a Sanders rally note the people standing behind him. Largely what most would call kids.

So what does jacksjargon think? Well forget the coronavirus hurting him even though Democrats despicably try to make it a political issue. It was Trump, angering some Democrats at the time, not permitting an influx of people coming in from China or flights to China in January. Or, we’d be far worse. Whatever the President loses in white suburban women (it’s a personality issue largely) he will gain in African American votes. From 8% in 2016 to 12% or higher 2020. Many Blacks realize the benefits of Trumps best economy in 50 years and Blacks unemployment is the lowest ever. Majority of voters who pay attention to the news feel the President has their back. He’s been treated unfairly. Plus, Democrat’s have become so radicalized a high percentage of voters want none of it. Sanders calls himself a democratic socialist. Nonsense. It’s his way of getting around that deep down he is a communist.

President Trump will win another four years. Good chance of a landslide. If somehow Sanders gets the nomination, nightmare scenario for Democrats , they won’t just win the Senate. They are likely to lose the House of Representatives. Sanders having no coat tails. Whoa Nellie. Bye bye, soon to be 80 years old, Pelosi once and for all.
