    The Stock Market

    I have never been in the stock market. I have always been fearful of the ups and downs and uncertainty of it. So if I post something here not correct I will gladly stand corrected. Buying and selling at the right time is the key. I think anyone selling their stock right now is irrational. If you own stock right now why not ride this out as stocks will certainly rebound? If I were ever to get into the stock market right now is the time I would be looking to get into it. There seems to me to be bargains to be had by buying in low. The uncertainty would be not knowing how much lower stocks will continue to fall. We know however the fundamentals of our economy were very strong before the coronavirus and once we get a handle on this pandemic (which is going to happen) stock prices I think are likely to shoot back up quickly.
  2. Israel claims they’ve created a vaccine for coronavirus They predicted they would do it. Now Israel’s Defense Minister is claiming that the country’s biological research institute has created a vaccine to the coronavirus, or more specifically to COVID-19: What a huge breaking through this would be if true. I hate to sound skeptical, but I just wish there was more known about the testing and development of this vaccine. Based on the above it sounds like they must’ve already completed human trials since they are patenting it and getting ready to mass produce it. I don’t know about other countries, but here some doctors here are very careful about what they prescribe for a patient, with some even being unwilling to prescribe HCQ since it doesn’t have the rigorous history of trials and testing with COVID-19 that it does with other diseases. Let’s hope this vaccine has a solid history of testing and development that will set doctors, and the FDA, at ease about approving it. Because we could definitely use a vaccine right now. https://therightscoop.com/boom-israel-claims-theyve-created-a-vaccine-for-coronavirus/
  3. Not really. The woman accusing Biden is a life long democrat who does not support Trump. What is happening is the democrats are reaping the whirlwind of their double standards in how they reacted to Kavanaugh vs Biden. https://thefederalist.com/2020/05/01/democrats-are-reaping-the-whirlwind-kavanaugh-warned-about/
  4. "Believe all women" is a dumb statement and totally contrary to our system of government and laws that believe everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty. If we ever ditch that standard like the democrats did with Kavanaugh (and gave him a presumption of guilt and then said it was up to him to prove himself innocent) that is the type of law in communist countries not a country based on freedom. So using that standard Biden should be presumed innocent until proven guilty. It is not up to Biden to prove his innocence but to his accuser to prove his guilt. We need to keep that standard of justice in every case. What I am speaking about is a court of law not the political arena. There is some evidence that Biden did commit the offense with no known motivation for Ms. Reade to make these charges and of her telling other people at the time about the offense. A person could look at that and believe Biden is guilty and not vote for him because of it (but when it comes to voting we have that freedom to vote for whomever we want for any reason). Also it may be politically expedient for Biden to try to prove his innocence and release his Delaware records if it exonerates him. He doesn't have to do it but it might be in his political best interests to do it.

    Informal poll

    1 Complete and gradual reopening over the next two or three weeks. That is what I would go with. It makes no sense to close down a florist shop for example and have people buying flowers at Walmart. I think however with the 24/7 coronavirus coverage and a good chunk of citizenry good and frightened about this virus I don't see how when things open back up everything will go back to normal. Restaurants for example will need to take steps to ensure customers are as safe as possible and the same with a number of other businesses. I saw a nail salon for example where both customer and employee had on masks and they had a plastic shield set up where the customer would stick their hands under an opening in the plastic shield for the employee to work on the customers hands. Innovations like this are to me good common sense approaches but shut downs now should be over as they will be more destructive with businesses not coming back and loss of jobs. Time to get back to work and use ingenuity in trying to make things as safe as possible and then deal with the effects which in all likelihood will mean a rise in more coronavirus cases but you cannot stay in lockdown forever.

  8. Jonathan Turley shreds Biden for not allowing even a search of his Delaware senate records Jonathan Turley shredded Biden today over his refusal to allow a search of his records for Reade’s allegation. He noted that in the beginning of the interview with Morning Mika he found Biden credible, but then all of that fell apart when Biden refused to allow for the release or even a search of his records at Delaware University. First, Turley points out that Biden’s claim that only the national archives would have Reade’s complaint isn’t true: 435 people are talking about this Turley compares Biden’s “cringe-worthy” refusal to allow a search of his Delaware records to someone who is ok with a search of their barn but then gets irate when asked to search their home… Turley says what Biden is calling for is a “flashlight search”, when what is really needed is sunlight… 374 people are talking about this 589 people are talking about this It’s clear to see that Biden is only interested in ‘responding’ to the sexual assault allegations and not in true transparency. That’s likely because it really happened. What makes this all the worse is that after complaining about Biden, Reade’s job was downgraded and she was ultimately fired. She was victimized twice by Biden and his Senate staff and the fact that he won’t even allow for a search of Reade’s name makes her story even more credible than before. https://therightscoop.com/jonathan-turley-shreds-biden-for-not-allowing-even-a-search-of-his-delaware-senate-records/
  9. China threatens to halt medical supplies after Netherlands changes Taiwan rep office name This is the cost of doing business with China and having to rely on them for anything.

    Watch The Numbers For 6 weeks

    It does not take a genius to predict as we open things up that the rise of new covid19 cases will inevitably happen. I see already those making those predictions so they will sound so smart when the new covid19 cases happens. So what is the answer? We cannot stay in lock down much longer as we are already seeing the terrible economic consequences. We have to open things back up and try to take common sense measures to help stop the spread. That is all we can do. To try to stay in lockdown mode month after month is economic suicide and how many lives will that cost as well as the long term damage?

    FDA warns against drugs endorsed by Trump for COVID-19🤣

    Do what you want. There is a mountain of evidence of the safety of HCQ being prescribed for decades with little side effects and even pregnant women being prescribed it. If you get the virus and don't want to take HCQ there is a simple remedy....just say you don't want it. As for me I would take it. My problem are those who want to take the decision away from patients and their doctors.

    FDA warns against drugs endorsed by Trump for COVID-19🤣

    There are little side effects with HCQ and that has been proven over many decades. It has a decades long history of a safety record. A leading doctor who has prescribed HCQ for 40 years for patients with lupus or malaria said the only side effects they ever encountered were mild such as a rash and never anything where someone had to be hospitalized. The possible side effects with heart issues are adding the zpac and that is why doctors need to be involved in prescribing the cocktail of HCQ, zpac and zinc combo. Patients with heart conditions may not be a candidate but that issue should be discussed with the doctor and their patients and not any politician making that decision for them. There is no free lunch. You might have the $1,000 a pill paid free of charge but as that $1,000 a pill is used in mass quantities somebody will be footing the bill and those costs always get passed back on to consumers.

    FDA warns against drugs endorsed by Trump for COVID-19🤣

    I don't care about politicizing any drug because when it comes to this virus it doesn't care about who it strikes. I just want us to use the best most effective drugs we have but I feel right now at this moment it is hydroxychloroquine with zpack and zinc added for patients with early symptoms of covid19. I found it odd with Dr. Fauci how hesitant he was to endorse HCQ with so many testimonies of it's success but I understood it as he is a scientist and wants more facts however Fauci sure jumped in feet first with endorsing Remdisvir (without much study) which the costs right now are $1,000 a pill vs the .30 cents a pill for HCQ. I am getting skeptical in my older age and starting to take notice of the wisdom of the old saying of "always follow the money trail" when seeking answers. I heard Laura Ingraham say she gets calls from doctors all over the world wondering why the United States is panning HCQ when they have seen it's positive effects? I think the answer is there is no money in HCQ for big pharmaceutical companies. I am glad to see studies being conducted to back up the anecdotal evidence of HCQ effectiveness but even the doctor who has had so much success with HCQ states that the effectiveness primarily works in patients with early symptoms of the virus and works to keep them progressing symptoms to where they are placed on ventilators. As we race to build more ventilators NYC had an 80 percent failure and death rate of those whose symptoms had reached the critical point of being placed on a ventilators leaving no doubt ventilators are no solution for those critically ill buy maybe HCQ does work to keep many patients from reaching critical condition? I will be glad when we get real studies done on HCQ and not those like the sham study of the VA. There are people though right now who don't have the luxury of time to wait on the studies and for those people I like the idea they at least have the choice to take HCQ with their doctors approval and not have politicians taking that choice away from them. I am for any drug that works and will support any drug that works best but I am skeptical that big pharmacy has those same feelings. HCQ Works, Says Group of US Doctors.

    If Remdisvir is proven to be more effective than hyrdroxychloroquine, zpack and zinc combo i am all for it. I wanted people to take Hydroxychloroquine because we have an empty medicine bag right now and there are a number of testimonies from people who claim it helped them. With no other alternative I wanted patients to be able to take HCQ with approval from their doctors and not have governors making the decision for them. If they find better alternatives than Remdisvir I am all for that as well. With a vaccine still a long ways off I want us to continually try to find better treatments.

    Media Hype Estrogen For Men As Coronavirus Treatment After Trashing Chloroquine The New York Times and other major media outlets are hyping estrogen for men as a new experimental treatment for the coronavirus and are applying little if any of the skepticism they've shown towards chloroquine.Whereas every possible side effect of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine have been highlighted ad nauseam and junk studies were wildly hyped to suggest it's killing people en masse, you'd think by reading the media's headlines that giving men estrogen was a panacea."Men are dying from coronavirus at higher rates. Could estrogen save them?" said one headline from Mic. "Can Estrogen and Other Sex Hormones Help Men Survive Covid-19?" said a headline from the New York Times. Roni Caryn Rabin in the New York Times hyped the gender-bending treatment in her article titled, "Can Estrogen and Other Sex Hormones Help Men Survive Covid-19?": As the novel coronavirus swept through communities around the world, preying disproportionately on the poor and the vulnerable, one disadvantaged group has demonstrated a remarkable resistance. Women, whether from China, Italy or the U.S., have been less likely to become acutely ill — and far more likely to survive. Which has made doctors wonder: Could hormones produced in greater quantities by women be at work? Now scientists on two coasts, acting quickly on their hunches in an effort to save men's lives, are testing the hypothesis. The two clinical trials will each dose men with the sex hormones for limited durations. Last week, doctors on Long Island in New York started treating Covid-19 patients with estrogen in an effort to increase their immune systems, and next week, physicians in Los Angeles will start treating male patients with another hormone that is predominantly found in women, progesterone, which has anti-inflammatory properties and can potentially prevent harmful overreactions of the immune system. Note: doctors giving out estrogen to "increase" men's immune systems is just fine but doctors giving out intravenous vitamin C to boost folks immune systems get raided by the FBI. "There's a striking difference between the number of men and women in the intensive care unit, and men are clearly doing worse," said Dr. Sara Ghandehari, a pulmonologist and intensive care physician at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles who is the principal investigator for the progesterone study. She said 75 percent of the hospital's intensive care patients and those on ventilators are men. And pregnant women, who are usually immunocompromised but have high levels of estrogen and progesterone, tend to have mild courses of the disease. "So something about being a woman is protective, and something about pregnancy is protective, and that makes us think about hormones," Dr. Ghandehari said. Rabin waited until paragraph 7 to inform readers of the (mildest) side effects: Some experts who study sex differences in immunity, however, warned that hormones may fail to be the magic bullet that some are hoping for; even elderly women with Covid-19 are outliving their male peers, and there is a drastic reduction in levels of hormones for women after menopause. She also included one line in the final paragraph (number 27) noting potential side effects: Both hormones are believed to be safe, especially when used for short durations. Participants will be warned of possible side effects that may be a first for many men, like tenderness in the breast and hot flashes. Drugs.com has a list of side effects for progesterone a mile long -- which include death. The most common are listed as "chest pain, chills, cold or flu-like symptoms, cough or hoarseness, fever" and "problems with urination." I guess Times readers are only entitled to know of the side effects of chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine! As I reported two weeks ago, the media also hyped the expensive and unproven Gilead drug Remdesivir with little skepticism based off a single report citing leaked information that may have been part of an insider trading scam. A later leaked report found the much-hyped Remdesivir "flopped" during its first clinical trial. http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=61409

    He Has Officially Lost His Mind

    Opinion: PPE, the Tyranny of Affluence and Asking the Right Questions I’m sure we all enjoyed the little repartee between President Trump and the Fourth Estate last week when he asked about various possibilities in treating the Wuhan Virus that is killing so many of our citizens. He discussed Ultraviolet Light, Sunlight and the use of disinfectants. The part about disinfectants is what really got the left stirred up President Trump is good at asking the right question at the right time, even if the media is too ill informed to understand it. One such case involves what I refer to as, “the tyranny of affluence” in the medical community. The First World, with the United States as the most brilliant diadem in that particular necklace, is a sparkling example of this. The United States, uses its affluence to combat infection. Instead of resharpening needles and scalpels and then sterilizing them in the autoclave, we rip open the package, pull out a sterile knife, go to cutting and when done, dispose of it. I remember thinking that this was wasteful, when I was down in Central America filming U.S. Doctors doing surgery on indigent patients. They would rip open the package, use the tool and throw it away…to be later recovered by the locals for their use. I understand that for the First World, this is a more cost effective method to ensure sterile equipment. But in this just-in-time society of ours, we don’t normally stock enough needles, scalpels or PPE to last through a major pandemic. It’s hard to ramp up production of something that although is considered a “throw away” item,” is still pretty expensive and not to be kept on hand at stock levels that would break the bank. So, when a shortage of N95 masks presented itself as a problem, all the medical community knew, was what they knew…what they had experienced. If we need more, then we buy more and wait until it gets here. With the sheer volume of patients going through their facilities, the hard working medical providers were burning through PPE at a rapid rate and it was taking the supply chain some time to ramp up. Then President Trump, the businessman, not the doctor asked a simple question, “Why don’t we clean them and reuse them?” Of course he was immediately excoriated, loudly and long by the press, punditry and various Democrat straphangers such as MSN, Bill Gates’ personal mouthpiece. From MSN After beating around the bush, the article finally admits that there are actually CDC guidelines for doing just what President Trump suggested. Well, it turns out, President Trump asked exactly the right question. Now, N95 masks are being cleaned and reused, giving the supply chain time to catch up. In rich country such as ours, we often become over reliant on a throw-away culture. We rarely fix things anymore. In times of crisis, a businessman who has been attuned to costs, time schedules and supply chain issues, can often be the right one to ask the right question at the right time. In this case at least, President Trump asked the question…the question that freed the medical supply chain from some of the tyranny of affluence…and got N95 masks where they needed to be. https://www.redstate.com/darth641/2020/04/29/opinion-ppe-the-tyranny-of-affluence-and-asking-the-right-questions/

    Especially a president who faces a biased corrupt hostile liberal democrat media who will twist his words to say something he never said. https://therightscoop.com/disgusting-msnbc-and-nancy-pelosi-still-lying-about-trump-telling-people-to-inject-lysol-in-their-lungs/
  20. There is evidence that shows that covid19 can be spread by asymptomatic carriers not only by coughing or sneezing but just by the infected person speaking so it makes sense to me that customers should be wearing masks not for themselves but to protect other customers and store employees. I was not unhappy with the mask requirement but many people are against it so Dewine changed it from a mandatory to a suggested policy. https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2020/04/coronavirus-microdroplets-talking-breathing-spread-covid-19/ https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/04/200403132345.htm

    He Has Officially Lost His Mind

    It may be grasping at straws because we are up against a virus with no medicine in our tool box to fight it. So now Trump's crime is for thinking out loud and he was asking questions of the expert he had with him. Not a big deal. He was not suggesting anyone use a can of Lysol. He asked the medical expert IF they could be used? And guess what hydrogen peroxide apparently is being used that way and that is a disinfectant. This is more of the same nonsense like Trump speaking about the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine and the woman and husband who took the fish tank cleaner because Trump told them it was safe. In case you didn't know it this woman is now under investigation for murdering her husband. The reporting on the story has been wrong and false much like most of the coverage our MSM has been of Trump. https://www.dailywire.com/news/breaking-homicide-unit-investigating-death-of-the-man-who-drank-fish-tank-cleaner-report-says *** BTW Trump speaking about hydroxychloroquine is what a democrat senator claims is what saved her life. She credits the drug for saving her life and said she only knew about it because Trump spoke of it at his covid19 presser. Now this democrat senator gets censured from the democrat party because you cannot thank this president for helping to save your life if you are in the democrat party...more Trump hatred insanity. Making hydroxychloroquine into a political football and rooting for it to fail because Trump endorsed it is insanity. I have heard you say using the phrase TDS gets old so I will just call it insanity or irrational thinking due to hatred of Trump.
