    Default CDC contradicts Trump, time for another purge.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

    More toadying, please.


    Trump basically disbanded the part of his national security team that was responsible for responding to an infectious disease outbreak and in part because the administration dramatically scaled back its efforts to fight global health threats in the last couple of years.
    Trump's crusade to slash the budget of the CDC has hurt morale within the agency, and a hiring freeze in the first year of his administration left 700 jobs there vacant. But in Trump's estimation, there's nothing to worry about." The No. 1 priority from our standpoint is the health and safety of the American people," Trump said Wednesday.
    "The risk to the American people remains very low."

    He said his team is ready to handle an outbreak — and then questioned whether there was any reason to worry about that at all.
    "We're ready to adapt and we're ready to do what we have to as the disease spreads, if it spreads," he said. "We're very, very ready for this. "Trump held up a study from Johns Hopkins University that rated the United States the most prepared of the world's countries to handle an epidemic or pandemic.


    That left Trump telling the public that he's got everything under control, even as scientists say the threat is greater than he suggested and members of Congress say he's asked for too little money in the wake of the cuts he's already made to the nation's preparedness.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden, speaking on CNN after Bloomberg, reminded voters that he had been given responsibility for the U.S. response to the Ebola virus and said there has to be "complete unity" between scientists and the administration.

    "I just hope the president gets on the same page as the scientists," he said.

    'The president is not a scientist' is a nice way to phrase it," Bloomberg had said just a little bit earlier.

    Wow, the nasty cunt is back!!
    In rejecting their view [Spinoza, Leibnitz and Hegel], as I shall contend that we must, we are committing ourselves to the opinion that “truth” in empirical material has a meaning different from that which it bears in logic and mathematics.”

    Look at the source of your PROOF......NBC....really?

    Oh…..the HORROR......the flu kills between 16 and 40 thousand each year in the Untied States alone....this supposed "pandemic" has killed how many so far, infected how many so far? World wide "possible infected"? Less than 45 thousand. Dead so far 2670.....WORLD WIDE.

    This is another "STAGED EVENT". Trump knows this and he is simply allowing the Global Elite to play out this latest event using fear in an attempt to tank the world economy and blame it on TRUMP. It will fail.

    Why? Trump knows there is a vaccine already available.....and he will tell the world about it, after he has allowed the Central Bank to destroy their own resources......Guaranteed, within 2 weeks....the media storm that is stoking the fear will die out when the people of the US realize....its just another BOY CRIES WOLF STORY and no one is dying in the US in the numbers projected by the FAKE MEDIA and their deep state cohorts.

    Why do they always wait until TRUMP is out of the country to stage these events? The person at the CDC who sent up this false flag pandemic scare (while Trump was abroad) in order to tank the market for another day.....the SISTER of a well known deep state player.

    To try to isolate this vast country from outside threats is totally insane thinking.

    There was a ship that had some corona virus cases. You remember the story. It was looking for a place to end the cruise. Finally they were allowed to dock.

    And then they just let everybody GO!

    No health checks. No quarantines. Despite huge warnings not to do this, they did it. Fully knowing that people can carry and transmit the virus without showing symptoms yet. How stupid was THAT?

    And now the virus is all over the world in numerous nations.

    Nobody can pinpoint that this was the pathway the virus took. This is my observation. It probably would have happened anyway. I was astonished they didn't even try to contain it, though.

    It is childish to think you can put up walls and keep this thing out of the US.

    I just heard there is a new case in California, and the patient did not travel from abroad. If that's true, it's already loose in the USA, despite the president's woefully inadequate lack of planning and hope that it might be possible to keep it from coming here.

    And now I heard that Rush Limbaugh is floating all these conspiracy theories about it. (big surprise.) 'Oh, it's all fake news, meant to undermine DT. or Oh, it was an evil plot cooked up in a lab to fix DT.' These are both unvetted baloney, completely without evidence. Just Rush, saying sensational things to get attention and sell advertising.

    So how many Americans have died from the Coronavirus? How many Americans are infected with it?

    How many have died from the common flu? Only willful idiots want to make this into a crisis that is tanking the stock markets right now.
