THE NUMBERS JUST DON’T ADD UP: Nearly 500,000 Went to Hospital in 2018-19 Flu Season But Today There Are Not Enough Hospital Beds for Coronavirus Patients?


Reported By Jim Hoft | Published March 27, 2020 at 9:11am

Really, What is going on? The data just don’t add up.

Via the CDC – there were 490,000 hospitalizations during the 2018-2019 flu season.

And yet the media want you to believe the US will run out of hospital beds during the coronavirus.  This is not likely.

The data to date show that most individuals with the coronavirus suffer from very mild conditions.  The panic-driven Washington Post even reported that 82% of these individuals with the coronavirus suffer from mild conditions.

Assuming the remaining require hospitalization (which is unlikely but conservative), then only 15,300 people currently require hospitalizations across the US.  Of course this too is conservative because many of these cases in the US are already recovered and the individuals no longer suffer from the virus from China.

So the lefties Mainstream Media (MSM) want us to believe that hospital beds will be overwhelmed by the coronavirus by 15,000 patients (at most to date) but a year ago the US hospitals were not overwhelmed by 500,000 flu patients.

Other numbers from the media were based on the Imperial College report that warned that 2 million Americans and half a million British citizens would die from the coronavirus this year.

Yesterday they backtracked on their study and now claim only 20,000 in Britain will succumb to the coronavirus. Great Britain has 29,000 flu deaths a year on average.  So now they are saying the coronavirus is less deadly than a typical flu virus.

None of this passes the smell test.

VIDEO: Ted Cruz UNLOADS on Democrats for using coronavirus bill to push far-left agenda


Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) excoriated Democrats from the Senate floor Monday for using the coronavirus relief bill to push their far-left agenda.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) introduced House Democrats’ coronavirus relief bill on Monday after she torpedoed the bipartisan agreement reached by the Senate. Pelosi’s bill includes billions of dollars for items completely unrelated to COVID-19 relief, including:

  • A bailout for the U.S. Postal Service
  • Student loan debt forgiveness
  • Required same-day voter registration
  • Airline emissions standards regulations
  • Study on climate change migration
  • Collective bargaining provisions
  • Increased federal minimum wage for companies that accept government loans
  • Publication of race and pay statistics for corporate boards
  • Dozens of other provisions allocating money to universitiesthe JFK Performing Arts CenterIRSNOAAmuseumsmigration assistance
  • There’s even a requirement that the federal government use more minority banks and credit unions

The bill would cost taxpayers more than $2.5 trillion and would require certain Americans — individuals who make more than $75,000 and couples who make more than $150,000 in 2020 — to pay back the stimulus check, essentially forcing a significant portion of Americans to receive a government loan.

In response, Cruz unloaded on Pelosi and the Democratic caucus for the pork-filled bill.

A number of people have cited the famed quote of Rahm Emanuel: “Never let a good crisis go to waste.” Sadly, we are seeing the embodiment of that cynical approach right now because all of the people out of jobs, the Democrats are using to push — what are they pushing for? Changing the emissions standards on airplanes.

Mr. president, what the hell do the emissions standards on airplanes have to do with thousands of people dying and millions of people out of work during the coronavirus epidemic? Don’t treat this bill like a partisan Christmas.

Republicans have things we would like to advance, too, things I believe in deeply. You want to talk about what I would like to do? I would like to abolish the IRS. I campaigned all over the country for that. I will continue fighting for that, but I am not standing here with an amendment, saying: As part of this emergency relief, let’s abolish the IRS. There is a place for that political and policy discussion.

The Democrats are pushing wind and solar tax credits. Mr. president, what in the hell does a windmill have to do with this crisis, other than some Democratic lobbyists getting fat and rich, and they are willing to extort a crisis to try to advance their political agenda?

In the end, Cruz said responding to the COVID-19 crisis will “require adults to step up and lead” and urged both Democrats and Republicans to not engage in political gamesmanship.

Horowitz: Anarchy mixed with tyranny: Jailbreaker criminal terrorizes woman in her home


Reported by | March 25, 2020

Who could have predicted this?

Utah, like nearly every state with Democrat or liberal Republican leadership, has released some criminals from prison, supposedly under the guise of avoiding spread of the virus in prison. What they are really doing is spreading the disease of crime into our communities.

Joshua Haskell, 42, of American Fork, Utah is someone deemed by the liberal politicians as a “nonviolent, low-level” offender. He was released on March 17 from a halfway house, pursuant to an incomprehensible order to release low-level offenders into the community during the coronavirus epidemic. Just two days later, he was arrested in the home of a woman after he allegedly attacked the homeowner with a knife in her bed.

According to the charging documents, as reported by the Deseret News, the woman awoke to find Haskell standing over her bed. When she screamed, he threatened to cut her with a knife and proceeded to tie her up in bed. He demanded her bank cards and PIN numbers and threatened to come back and kill her if she gave him the wrong information. According to the affidavit, police showed up after her son called 911 with Haskell still in her bedroom. He allegedly crawled into bed with her and told her to tell police he was her lover. She finally managed to make a quick escape downstairs to the officers.

Haskell was charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated robbery, and aggravated kidnapping, among other crimes.

Like all “low-level” offenders, Haskell had a lengthy criminal history, including four drug convictions and parole violations. Police say he had drugs on him at the time of this offense. This is the big lie I’ve long exposed regarding the nature of drug offenders. Yes, there are some drug offenders who might not commit other crimes, but those are usually the ones sent to drug diversion court. If you are serving time for drug offenses nowadays, it means you are a career criminal. With Haskell, the proof is in the pudding. By definition, if someone is in prison or a halfway house, this is not his first time in the system.

Yet these are the sorts of criminals who are being released throughout the country at a time like this! Authorities are not checking their prior criminal records and parole violations. How many more of these people will commit crimes that we will never hear about in the national media, or often even in local media?

Now, many states are closing gun stores, so single women who live at home during this time of great peril and criminal release cannot purchase guns. L.A. police, after being forced to release criminals onto the streets, are now going store to store and shutting down gun dealers.

And they want us to know they mean business. “The time for warning is over,” threatened New Jersey’s Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. “There will be serious legal consequences.”

When have we ever heard these people talk that way about real criminals? In fact, they have been letting them go.

This is rapidly devolving into the worst mix of fascism on the one hand and anarchism on the other hand. Law-abiding citizens are being shut down, but criminals are being released. Don’t tell me that this perverse amalgamation of policy outcomes is somehow all about public safety.

Americans must rise up and demand no new rules against peaceful Americans until the criminals are put back in jail and we are given the right to defend ourselves.

“Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!”

Twitter Ads info and privacy 76.6K people are talking about this

On Monday, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) highlighted some of the spending items that Democrats are seeking that have nothing to do with the coronavirus:

  1. Corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards at companies receiving assistance.

  2. Bailing out all current debt of postal service

  3. Required early voting

  4. Required same day voter registration

  5. 10k bailout for student loans

  6. For companies accepting assistance, 1/3 of board members must be chosen by workers

  7. Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining

  8. Full offset of airline emissions by 2025

  9. Greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights

  10. Retirement plans for community newspaper employees

  11. $15 minimum wage at companies receiving assistance

  12. Permanent paid leave at companies receiving assistance

USA Today noted that Pelosi’s bill calls for nationwide ballot harvesting, a shady practice that is believed to lead to voter fraud:

Perhaps the most troubling sections of the bill are under the rubric ‘‘American Coronavirus/COVID–19 Election Safety and Security” or ‘‘ACCESS” Act. This section would impose requirements on states for early voting, voting by mail, required mailing of absentee ballots to everyone, ballot harvesting (i.e., having third parties deliver absentee ballots), online voter registration, same-day registration and other practices which undermine confidence in the integrity of the ballot. In these days of increasing threats to election security we should be moving rapidly back to in-person paper ballots, but this bill would be a radical step in the wrong direction.

Some of the other absurd things that were included in the bill include $35,000,000 for the JFK Performing Arts Center.

Democrats believe can be cured by providing $35 million in funding to the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Numerous publications have correctly placed the blame on the Democrats for stalling the process for getting suffering American families the relief that they need to make it financially as companies have been forced to shutdown as a result of the coronavirus, which originated in China.

CNN noted that Democrats were engaging in “political gamesmanship” with the bill,

Even MSNBC noted that the Democrats’ bill involves issues “that are arguably not a current crisis.”

The New York Times even called out the Democrats in the lead headline on the front page of their newspaper, writing, “Democrats Block Action on $1.8 Trillion Stimulus”

@DanCrenshawTX

US House candidate, TX-2

Democrats torpedoed a bipartisan emergency bill that:

-Provides payroll & rent for small business
-Credit to businesses across America to keep them afloat
– Cash in American’s pockets
⬆️ unemployment benefits

They have no good reasons. Just partisanship. Call your reps NOW.
