Pelosi Suggests Dems Will Investigate President Trump Over Coronavirus. Mark Cuban praises the President (UPDATE)

Righteous anger and sincerity: if you can fake those you can go anywhere
Analyzing America   "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested another investigation into President Trump, this time to find what he knew about the coronavirus and when he first knew it.
"During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Pelosi said Trump should be held personally accountable for Americans dying to the coronavirus and said she would call for an “after-action review” of his handling of the crisis — delayed until after the coronavirus pandemic ends.
“ 'The president, his denial at the beginning, was deadly,” Pelosi told Tapper, as BizPac Review reports. “His delaying of getting equipment to where it it’s needed is deadly.”
“ 'And now the best thing to do would be to prevent more loss of life rather than open things up, because we just don’t know,” she continued. “We have to have testing, testing, testing. That’s what we said from the start, before we can evaluate what the nature of it is in some of these other regions as well.”
“ 'I don’t know what the purpose of that is. I don’t know what the scientists are saying to him,” Pelosi continued. “I don’t know what the scientists said to him. When did this president know about this, and what did he know? What did he know, and when did he know it? That’s for an after-action review.' ” 
" 'Tapper pressed Pelosi on exactly how much she will be holding the president accountable.
“Speaker Pelosi, when you say the president’s denial was deadly, he obviously downplayed the risks of coronavirus for several weeks, and it wasn’t until I think about two weeks ago that he started acknowledging the gravity of the crisis,” he said per the report. “Are you saying his downplaying ultimately cost American lives?”
“ 'Yes, I am,” Pelosi answered. “I’m saying that because when he made — the other day, when he was signing the bill, he said, just think, 20 days ago everything was great. No, everything wasn’t great. We had nearly 500 cases and 17 deaths already.”.

UPDATE: Mark Cuban Drops Bombshell: I Give Trump All The Credit In The World For Combatting Coronavirus [Opinion]  
. . . “ 'Look, I’m not gonna throw anybody under the bus,” Cuban began, “I’m not a fan of Donald Trump’s as president, I haven’t been for awhile, but, that said, he’s obviously adjusted and adapted, and he’s doing his best,” he added. “We are where we are.”
“ 'In the past, it wasn’t all that long ago when he was saying — people were thinking, wondering how he understood medicine so well. They thought he was just a genius for being able to understand all this stuff, but now he’s kind of evolved to the point where he’s putting his experts up front,” he said. “There’s a reason why Dr. [Anthony] Fauci became a rock star, and he’s only a rock star because Donald Trump stepped aside.” He continued." . .



Heroic Industry geared up to win WW2 ; today they are the enemy of the left

Joe Scarborough Applauds MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell: ‘I Salute Him,’ ‘I’d Like To Make 50,000 Masks’
“Once the Trump-aligned My Pillow guy came on to give a free infomercial from the Rose Garden, CNN cuts away– good on them for not giving oxygen to this partisan corporate bulls**t,” tweeted Bryan Tyler Cohen of Occupy Democrats. 

 One day, three egregious examples of media bias, hatred, and misinformation. This is not "news"; it's propaganda.
My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell says God put Trump in the White House and tells people to read the Bible while standing behind a presidential seal on government property in a clear violation of the separation of church and state.
. . . "The media went out of their mind again when Mike Lindell, the CEO of My Pillow, appeared at Monday's press conference to talk about the fact that he'd reconfigured his factory so it could produce fifty thousand masks a day.  Lindell, a Trump-supporter, added a little to his report, telling people Trump is a God-given blessing to the country and reminding them to read the Bible.
"The more ignorant media members thought that when a private citizen talks about God and the Bible, the mere fact that he is at the White House meant that he had violated the First Amendment: . . ."  Video at the link.

James Woods Wrecks MSNBC ‘Media Gnat’ Ali Velshi for Whining About MyPillow CEO’s Rose Garden Speech  . . . “ 'Trump just called the 'My Pillow' guy up to the podium in the Rose Garden. You cannot make this stuff up.” Woods (below, left) then did what he does best by slapping Velshi (right) down in a retweet: “Hard for a #FakeNews media gnat to appreciate Americans donating their resources to help others in a time of crisis…”

All because Mike said this:
. . . "Lindell also gave an inspiring talk about the importance of faith during the pandemic. He thanked the Trump administration for its leadership:"
“God had been taken out of our schools and lives … I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word, read our Bibles, and spend time with our families ... Our president gave us so much hope where, just a few short months ago, we had the best economy, the lowest unemployment, and wages going up. It was amazing. With our great president, vice president, and this administration, the other great people in this country, and praying daily, we will get through this and get back to a place that is stronger and safer than ever."

Fox Business Parts Ways With Host Trish Regan, Who Said Coronavirus Was ‘Attempt to Impeach’ Trump

WSJ   Other hosts at Fox News have come under fire for minimizing the threat of coronavirus before changing tack
"Fox Corp.’s business channel said it parted ways with host Trish Regan, who was taken off the air two weeks ago after she dismissed concerns over the coronavirus pandemic as “impeachment all over again.”
The rest is behind a paywall

Daily Mail  The network also released a statement on Regan’s behalf, saying: ‘I have enjoyed my time at FOX and now intend to focus on my family during these troubled times. . . .
"Regan added: ‘We see the absolute opposite from the left tonight… The hate is boiling over.
‘Many in the liberal media using coronavirus in an attempt to demonize and destroy the president.
"After playing several clips of cable news pundits who criticized Trump for his administration’s handling of the outbreak, Regan accused Democrats of whipping up ‘mass hysteria.’
" 'I see. This is impeachment all over again… They don’t care who they hurt,’ she said.
" ‘Whether it be their need to create mass hysteria to encourage a market sell-off, unlike anything we have seen recently or to be to create mass hysteria to stop our economy dead in its tracks.’
"She then added: ‘They told us how much they crave a recession as a way to get rid of Donald Trump.
"‘This is impeachment all over again, complete with a whistleblower to complain about our health and human services committee, right.’
"Regan’s commentary, which came as more coronavirus cases were being reported and a greater number of Americans were dying, sparked outrage.
"The sharp backlash prompted Fox Business to announce on March 13 that Trish Regan Primetime would be put on hiatus. " . . . 

Historian: Trump best to handle virus crisis, 'born for this moment'

Paul Bedard  "It’s been just shy of three months since the administration took its first action to fight off the coronavirus spread, and historians are already sizing up President Trump’s leadership.

"Most have focused on what they view as his “offensive” use of the term “China virus.”
"But author, historian, and former presidential adviser Doug Wead, who has followed every president since Gerald R. Ford, has been doing a back-of-the-envelope comparison of how the seven most recent presidents would have handled the crisis — and if they would have been successful.
"The current fight favors a president quick to decide, willing to let businesses help out, friendly with the media, and with “a deep desire to do it right,” said Wead, whose latest book is, Inside Trump's White House: The Real Story of His Presidency.
"Of the seven, he told us none had everything going for them, but two had three of four needed traits: Trump and Bill Clinton."  "Here are his findings." . . .

Geraldo: ‘We Have the Right Warrior for This Fight;’ Trump’s ‘Epic’ Effort ‘Is Getting the Job Done’  “ 'If the motive is to hurt Donald Trump, then save it. Save it for when this horrible disease is behind us,” because we all have to pull together in support of President Donald Trump’s “epic” efforts to combat coronavirus, Geraldo Rivera said Monday during his “Roadkill” podcast.
" 'There’s no point in nitpicking at Trump’s every misstep at a time like this – especially, since he’s doing “an epic job” keeping Americans safe from coronavirus, Rivera said:
“I know that many Trump-haters are clearly frustrated right now because most of the American people – 60 percent in that Gallup poll – most of the America people, many of whom did not vote for Donald Trump, approve of what I think is an epic job, that he is doing to mitigate the coronavirus catastrophe.”
Rivera described President Trump's performance as, "effective, yet flamboyant leadership".

CNN vs President Trump: Jim Acosta is CNN's Abbott to Don Lemon's Costello

Trump rips into Jim Acosta for ‘nasty’ question, says this is why people ‘don’t want to listen’ to CNN   "House Speaker Nancy Pelosi set the marker during her appearance Sunday on CNN that the new marching orders are to attack President Donald Trump for his handling of the Chinese virus COVID-19, which was hampered by an alleged early denial.
"With the coronavirus outbreak resulting in an unprecedented national emergency, as the U.S. economy has largely been shut down to counter the spread of the disease, the Democratic Party has fully politicized the crisis and their media allies have been quick to pick up on the marching orders.
"Eager to please, CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta confronted Trump Monday at a Rose Garden briefing, as if he was reading directly from Pelosi’s notes.
"“What do you say to Americans who are upset with you over the way you downplayed this crisis?” Acosta asked, before pointing to words of encouragement Trump made a few weeks back about the virus one day disappearing.
"Acosta then dropped the money line: “What do you say to Americans who believe that you got this wrong?” . . .

. . . More here.

The CNN hack wasted the American public’s time by asking a horrid, gotcha question at the White House presser today.  . . . "On Monday the president was accompanied by Great American industry leaders who praised the administration and vowed to begin manufacturing gowns and medical supplies for our nation’s care givers. It was another wonderful display of American patriotism.
"But Jim Acosta had to make it about himself and asked a sick gotcha question about the president’s comments from weeks ago.
"Truly Disgusting." . . .
CNN’s Acosta: W.H. Briefing Had ‘PR Stunt’ from ‘Mr. Pillow’ Plugging His Company
. . . "On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Situation Room,” CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta suggested that the White House’s coronavirus briefings could be “better designed” by not having “these PR stunts like Mr. Pillow coming out and giving a plug for his company, and that sort of thing.' ” . . .
Mike Lindell, founder of My Pillow answered the call, and converted 75% of his manufacturing capacity to make 50k N95 masks a day.
Yet the left wing media & blue checkmarks are outraged he mentioned God?
PBS Reporter: Covering Trump Is A ‘Team Sport’ For Press: We ‘Have Each Other’s Back’ In Opposition To President…
Alcindor described her role as a reporter this way: “Stay forward, stay focused, be steady and continue do the job you were there to do. For me it's a journalist, to hold presidents accountable and that's what I did today.”
Of course, she’s rushed to the defense of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, so maybe this doesn’t apply to all politicians. For more on Alcindor’s back and forth with Trump on Tuesday, go here.

Biden, The media, Democrats vs Republicans

Mainstream Media Gave Kavanaugh’s Accuser Substantial Coverage, Ignore Biden’s Accuser   "Mainstream media publications that gave wall-to-wall coverage of Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in 2018 have not given any coverage on the woman who came forward last week and accused Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden of sexual in the early 90s.
"On March 24, The Intercept reported on the sexual allegations from former Biden staffer Tara Reade against then-Senator Biden in 1993.
"The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC have not reported the allegation in the six days following The Intercept’s story." . . .
"A brief review by The Daily Wire of The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, and MSNBC found that Ford and Reade were mentioned the following number of times by the publications in the first six days after the allegations were made publicly:
The Washington Post:Christine Blasey Ford: 100+Tara Reade: 0
The New York Times:Christine Blasey Ford: 90+Tara Reade: 0
MSNBC:Christine Blasey Ford: 100+Tara Reade: 0
CNN:Christine Blasey Ford: 100+Tara Reade: 0
Democrats Booker and Harris laughing during Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation ordeal as the Kavanaugh family looks on.  No shame on the part of Hollywood, CNN nor MSNBC. TD

DHS Whistleblower Dead Ahead of Plan to Expose National Security Corruption

The last publicly visible Facebook post on Haney’s page was meme protesting against the impeachment of U.S. President Donald Trump.  *
DHS Whistleblower Dead Ahead of Plan to Expose National Security Corruption
  • Philip Haney’s mysterious death has caused a new wave of conspiracy theories to surface.
  • Haney’s alleged suicide came just weeks before he was reportedly planning to publish another book exposing shortcomings within the Obama administration.
  • Very few details about Haney’s death have been released.
"The untimely death of Philip Haney over the weekend has created another storm of political conspiracy theories. Haney gained notoriety in 2016 when he came forward as a whistleblower while working at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).
"Haney had been missing since Feb. 19 and was found dead two days later in what police have ruled a suicide. But reports that his fatal gunshot wound was to his chest coupled with a lack of information about the circumstances that led to his death have reignited growing mistrust between the U.S. public and the American government."  . . .

Much more:
BizPac Review  . . . " 'We’ve received reports that Philip Haney, a DHS whistleblower on the Obama administration, has been found dead,” the website Law Enforcement Today reported Saturday afternoon.

*Here’s what you need to know:  
. . . "According to his Facebook page, Haney was living in Plymouth, California, 40 miles east of Sacramento. Online records show that Haney lived in 2019 in Leesburg, Virginia. A statement on author Andrew Boston’s Twitter page, said that Haney had returned to California following the death of his wife. That statement also said that Haney was engaged to be married later in 2020. The statement adds that friends of Haney’s say that there was “no way” he would have taken his own life.
There are unfounded rumors on social media that Haney was killed having been shot dead. There are no reports of a shooting in the area around Plymouth, California."  . . . 
One review of Haney’s book described it as an “exposé of a “politically correct” federal government that capitulates to a subversive enemy within and punishes those who reject its narrative.”
"During a 2015 appearance on Fox News, Haney said that his work in the Department of Homeland Security had been curtailed and that if it were able to continue, it may have prevented the 2015 San Bernardino shooting. According to Haney, among the places that he was investigating was a mosque attended by the shooter, Syed Farook. Haney alleged that his investigation was curtailed by the Obama administration. Haney said, “Either Syed would have been put on the no-fly list because association with that mosque, and/or the K-1 visa that his wife was given may have been denied because of his association with a known organization.”4. Haney Testified in 2016 that the Obama Administration Could Have Prevented the Orlando Pulse Nightclub Shooting . . .

Biden is preferred over President Trump why?

Joe Biden Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Former Staffer: ‘Penetrated Me With His Fingers’
“He got finished doing what he was doing and I, how I was pulled back and he said, ‘Come on man, I heard you liked me.’ And that phrase stayed with me because I kept thinking what I might have said. And I can’t remember exactly if he said ‘I thought’ or if ‘I heard.’ It’s like he implied that I had done this. . . .
Hollywood’s Me Too Group Turned Down Biden Sexual Assault Accuser
Tara Reade
. . . "On Tuesday, the Intercept’s Ryan Grim reported that Tara Reade, one of several women to come forward with credible allegations of harassment against Biden last spring was turned away from the preeminent #MeToo legal institution when she sought help with her case.
"Time’s Up argued that the case was too political considering that Biden was a candidate for president, and it didn’t want to jeopardize its status housed with the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) as a 501(c)(3) non-profit with the Internal Revenue Service, which allows the organization to be exempt from certain taxes. Since launching in 2017, Times Up has raised more than $24 million through the crowdfunding platform GoFundMe and has provided substantial legal support for big name accusers such as those abused by Harvey Weinstein.
"In Reade’s case however, she was shown the door." . . .

The Ballad of China Joe  . . . "Imagine "D'oh!" Joe's utter confusion right now.  He's walking around his Wilmington, Delaware mansion (which a lifetime of "public service" has somehow afforded him) without pants, wondering where he is and why his staff keep having him talk to the funny flat screen with Democrat-operative news anchors whose names he can't remember staring back at him, and he's being told that Mario Cuomo's kid is now second in the betting odds for the nomination" . . .

Tumbleweeds Greet Credible Sex Abuse Accusation Against Gropey Joe
. . . "Remember, we have to believe all women…except when it’s a liberal like Bad Touch Biden who is doing the grabbing, in which case she’s either a lying tramp who wanted it or she simply doesn’t exist. You know, all these differing rules about how we are supposed to react to #MeToo stuff seems really complex and difficult, since they change based on the ideology of the alleged pervert, but it’s really simple if you just understand one simple thing.
"The liberal outrage is all a lie and a scam." . . .
Remember the furious outrage about the locker room chatter in 2016? Well, Malarkey Boy actually did that, claims this lady, and the Democrats are not only ignoring it but are still intent on nominating this senile doofus to be president.

 New poll shows disastrous news for Biden and will delight Trump supporters
In recent weeks, Biden has framed his campaign pitch against Trump simply, arguing that he would be better suited than the current Oval Office occupant to deal with a national crisis such as the pandemic and/or a recession that follows. But this poll suggests voters aren’t buying it.

120 Media Mistakes in the Trump Era: The Definitive List

New York Times publishes fake news about American Thinker  . . . "That assertion by the Times is a bald-faced lie. At best, it represents the jaundiced opinion of the Times’ writers, perhaps based on what they read or heard somewhere else on the internet, and then ladled onto my blog at American Thinker. Never did I say or imply that Fauci’s email about Mrs. Clinton was “evidence that he [Fauci] was part of a secret group'.” . . .

120 Media Mistakes in the Trump Era: The Definitive List  "We the media have “fact-checked” President Trump like we have fact-checked no other human being on the planet—and he’s certainly given us plenty to write about. That’s probably why it’s so easy to find lists enumerating and examining his mistakes, missteps and “lies.”
 "But as self-appointed arbiters of truth, we’ve largely excused our own unprecedented string of fact-challenged reporting. The truth is, formerly well-respected, top news organizations are making repeat, unforced errors in numbers that were unheard of just a couple of years ago.
 "Our repeat mistakes involve declaring that Trump’s claims are “lies” when they are matters of opinion, or when the truth between conflicting sources is unknowable; taking Trump’s statements and events out of context; reporting secondhand accounts against Trump without attribution as if they’re established fact; relying on untruthful, conflicted sources; and presenting reporter opinions in news stories—without labeling them as opinions." . . .

52. June 21, 2018  Time magazine and others used a photo of a crying Honduran child to illustrate a supposed Trump administration policy separating illegal immigrant parents and children. The child’s father later reported that agents had never separated her from her mother; the mother had taken her to the US without his knowledge and separated herself from her other children, whom she left behind.
49. May 28, 2018  The New York Times’ Magazine editor-in-chief Jake Silverstein and CNN’s Hadas Gold shared a story with photos of immigrant children in cages as if they were new photos taken under the Trump administration. The article and photos were actually taken in 2014 under the Obama administration.

Yet liberals continue to state this story, counting on our ignorance,

Updated: Trump Snubs Disgraced Pelosi, Not Invited to WH Signing Ceremony on Stimulus

Analyzing America

"According to reports from The Hill, Nancy Pelosi was not invited to the White House signing ceremony of the coronavirus relief stimulus bill.
"On Friday, President Trump held the White House ceremony where he signed the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus rescue package.
"Pelosi, and other Democrats were not invited to attend, according to reports.
" 'I want to thank Democrats and Republicans for coming together and putting America first,” Trump told reporters." . . .

‘She’s a sick puppy’: Trump rips Pelosi after she criticizes his coronavirus response

Update: Lindsey Graham: Pelosi Made The ‘Most Shameful, Disgusting Statement By Any Politician In Modern History’

Maxine Waters: what of those who keep electing her?

Do we laugh or do we tremble?  When she speaks of reparations to those voters in her district, describing them as "gold in them there hills", I have to fear for this nation.

During the Civil Rights struggle, we hated the racism we saw. But those like Waters, Sharpton, and Farrakhan have taken all meaning of that word away. It has become a well-used gavel that shuts down all discourse among American people. When everything is racist, nothing is racist.

Idiot Maxine Waters Goes On Racist Rant, Voters Call For Her Impeachment
. . . “Never forget that Maxine Waters embraced Damian Williams, the infamous thug who hurled a chunk of concrete at truck driver Reginald Denny and performed a victory dance over this innocent man’s battered body,” reports Independent. She then danced with notorious gang members when Williams was released from prison." . . .
She’s [Maxine’s] earned a lifetime of left-wing adoration for whitewashing the deadly riots as a “rebellion,” excusing the week-long shooting, looting, and arson orgy as “a spontaneous reaction to a lot of injustice and a lot of alienation and frustration,” and coddling Crips and Bloods gang members — with whom she performed the electric slide as part of her “fearless support and understanding of young people and their efforts at self-expression.” [Source: New York Post]
Watch Waters lovingly hug the racist Black Muslim Farrakhan

And liberals cheer her when she attacks President Trump? I'd say she is deplorable, but Hillary already has dibs on that word in describing those who denounce her and all the Democrat Party has become. The Tunnel Dweller

Late night shows are going the way of newspapers

Don Surber

"Shamelessly stolen from Power Line, which likely swiped it from somewhere else.
"That is how the Internet works. Funny memes and humorous videos get passed along on Facebook and through emails. Aggregators and bloggers use them. Some are political. Most ain't. And all are topical.
"Which raises the question: Why can't late-night hosts pull off jokes anymore that are not socialist propaganda?
"Most of them used to be comedians. All of them now are on a mission to destroy President Donald John Trump. Kimmel and Colbert occasionally have serious monologues that drone on about the Orange Man. They are indistinguishable from their "jokes."
"It is not as if  Donald Trump is above criticism or satire. He does self-effacing humor well. At the 2011 Emmys, he sang the theme to Green Acres with Megan Mullally. It was nice.
"And the Babylon Bee (the most important conservative site) gets in some funny digs. (Trump Unveils Much Simpler Stimulus Plan: GIANT MONEY CANNON!)

. . . 
"But dang, the constant attacks got old in 2015.
"Get some new material.
"Humor is a pretty harsh mistress. A joke is either funny, or a candidate for Stephen Colbert's next monologue." . . .

The nightly TV shows are next.President Donald John Trump has driven their ratings but one way or another, after this election, Trump jokes will be passe and the late-night hosts will suffer.Maybe these shows will survive, but writing off the half of the nation that supports him was not a good business model.And not being funny is an even worse model. 

Pelosi, the press, and the President

Once again, Trump was right and the media were wrong . . . "Indeed, the chloroquine and azithromycin treatment was so successful that Dr. Raoult refused to use a control group. He believed that doing so would be unethical insofar as it would deny people a proven life-saving treatment. 
"And Trump once again scores against a hostile media."
The first casualty of war, even war against a virus, is truth  . . . "Leftists do something even more serious, which is to classify as a lie anything with which they disagree. In other words, they set themselves up as the arbiters of absolute truth. From this pedestal, they shout down or completely censor statements they dislike – even if the statement is subjective or reasonably debatable – on the ground that the statement is a “lie.' ” . . .

What to make of old Joe? Can he beat this President?

Doddering Joe Biden Unfit to Lead in Time of Crisis . . . "Watching Mr. Biden stumble, mumble and dodder through a simple speech in his living room while looking lost and lonely staring into a cold camera is physically painful for any human.
"For nearly five decades, Mr. Biden has been one of the great masters of Washington. Yet he is a blubbering disaster unfit for the national stage during a crisis. Unfit, really, for any stage at any time.
"He is Barack Obama — minus the fake Greek columns." . . .
Toon added by TD
. . . "This really should not be much of a surprise if you look back at their performance these past several years. Since the dawn of the Trump Dynasty, Democrats have manufactured ridiculous crisis after ridiculous crisis.
"Russian hookers peeing on a bed in a Moscow hotel room. Supreme Court Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh a serial gang rapist. Ukraine Kabuki impeachment.
"These people are fundamentally unserious. Totally untrustworthy. Genetically anti-American.
"And nothing reveals their unseriousness like an actual, true crisis." . . .
"For the first time, an ABC-Washington Post poll shows more Americans approve of President Donald John Trump than disapprove. A man denied a honeymoon on his inauguration finally has earned one." . . .

Biden consolidates support, but trails badly in enthusiasm: Poll  . . . "Indeed, strong enthusiasm for Biden among his supporters – at just 24% – is the lowest on record for a Democratic presidential candidate in 20 years of ABC/Post polls. More than twice as many of Trump’s supporters are highly enthusiastic about supporting him, 53%.
"Trump’s still-strong rating on the economy is another challenge for Biden. So is this: Among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who prefer Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders for the nomination, 15% say they’d back Trump over Biden in the fall." . . .
