Factor in SEA, Central America, sub-Saharan Africa and South Pacific Islands have been aggressively selling some form of anti-malaria drugs OTC for decades. Did this make a difference in Vietnam?
Quest Diagnostics, at least in California, now makes appointments online to have a COVID-19 antibody test - $129 This voluntary testings will add to the data bank numbers potentially of at least prior and perhaps totally asymptomatic exposures. This will help determine the whats, wheres, who and whens of this truly bizarre US Election Year "corona" shut down. At least voluntary lab testing now will add to the vague incidence numbers in order to put a better handle on the potential fatality numbers, which unfortunately have now been tainted beyond any useful value due to overly generous COVID-19 co-morbidity reporting demands. One of the 7 "COVID-19" deaths in our county was a older gentleman with severe pre-existing conditions who was already residing in our hospice facility - criteria approximately 6 months to live and recognition any further treatment is futile. Yet he was listed as one of our county's "corona" fataliies.
Eric, I'll take Door #4. Thank you.
Allegedly two separate quotes: 1. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.” 2. “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.” "In a response to the Washington Post, Trump said, in a statement that speaks for itself: This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course - not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended."
Trump has not been worn down. He is preparing for the next assault which commands all our focus - the unfolding Russia-gate hoax, the Flynn sting operation, and the far more sinister deep state coup revelations soon to come to light. "Covid" as a media event is a dead horse. There is no mileage left letting the media continue its perverse drumbeat of horror, death and pending OrangeManBad zombie apocalypse. Giving the media one more second to define this "flu season" according to their own TDS agenda is one second far too many.
The "sexual revolution" of the 1960's combined with the "feminist revolution" of the 1980's and 1980's led to openly aggressive and licentious conduct by women. Anyone who tries to rewrite the history of that ere is lying to more than just themselves. Trump in fact was right - women did "let" men do pretty much what they wanted if women sensed it was going to be a fair trade for power. Not sure where this new burst of neo-Puritanism is coming from, which is not a bad thing. But don't base it on outright lies about the past. Women did try to prove they could have "sex" like a man. Social-distancing is a god send today for those who found they actually could not, without incurring huge emotional damage. The old truism remains remarkably true: women give sex to get love; men give love to get sex. Not for all of couse, but for far too many.
Agree, and thanks for the update. "Forum shopping" is real so reasonable reservations about certain venues, like the District of Columbia, are well placed. Barr is doing us a favor not rushing to judgement at the first court on the block, or around the corner. Start low and slow - test the waters - Lady Justice has a history of winking under her loosely bound blindfold.
Amazing after 3.5 years with the opposition party screaming Russia, Russia, Russia as if was still supposed to mean something, now you tell us it was China all along? I concede the final word to (of all people) a cruise ship enrichment lecturer who stated it so simply many years ago: "the worst thing that recently happened to America ...was winning the Cold War. How perplexing when he first said that. How prescient he was today.
The Charge of the Light Brigade BY ALFRED, LORD TENNYSON I Half a league, half a league, Half a league onward, All in the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. “Forward, the Light Brigade! Charge for the guns!” he said. Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. II “Forward, the Light Brigade!” Was there a man dismayed? Not though the soldier knew Someone had blundered. Theirs not to make reply, Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die. Into the valley of Death Rode the six hundred. III Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon in front of them Volleyed and thundered; Stormed at with shot and shell, Boldly they rode and well, Into the jaws of Death, Into the mouth of hell Rode the six hundred. IV Flashed all their sabres bare, Flashed as they turned in air Sabring the gunners there, Charging an army, while All the world wondered. Plunged in the battery-smoke Right through the line they broke; Cossack and Russian Reeled from the sabre stroke Shattered and sundered. Then they rode back, but not Not the six hundred. V Cannon to right of them, Cannon to left of them, Cannon behind them Volleyed and thundered; Stormed at with shot and shell, While horse and hero fell. They that had fought so well Came through the jaws of Death, Back from the mouth of hell, All that was left of them, Left of six hundred. VI When can their glory fade? O the wild charge they made! All the world wondered. Honour the charge they made! Honour the Light Brigade, Noble six hundred! (NB: Irony - this battle took place in "Ukraine".

I have full confidence Trump will ride his trusty Black Swan to a rightfully earned 2020 victory, but right now he is facing enemies on all sides: 1. He responded to the "corona" thing too early and killed our economy 2. He responded to the "corona" thing too late and dead bodies are piling up 3. The "corona" thing was a hoax and he should not have responded at all 4. He unlocks our economy and every new "corona death has his name on it. Teflon Trump always gets us past these slings and arrows all pointed his way. Bravo. Mr Trump. You are teaching us the art of the deal in this very messy game called US politics. The deep state is diabolical. Who knew until how how deep they would dig.

From the CDC website right now: CDC information for travelers who want to avoid malaria: CLOROQUINE Drug Reasons that might make you consider using this drug Reasons that might make you avoid using this drug Chloroquine Adults: 300 mg base (500 mg salt), once/week. Children: 5 mg/kg base (8.3 mg/kg salt) (maximum is adult dose), once/week. Begin 1-2 weeks before travel, once/week during travel, and for 4 weeks after leaving. Some people would rather take medicine weekly Good choice for long trips because it is taken only weekly Some people are already taking hydroxychloroquine chronically for rheumatologic conditions. In those instances, they may not have to take an additional medicine Can be used in all trimesters of pregnancy Cannot be used in areas with chloroquine or mefloquine resistance May exacerbate psoriasis Some people would rather not take a weekly medication For trips of short duration, some people would rather not take medication for 4 weeks after travel Not a good choice for last-minute travelers because drug needs to be started 1-2 weeks prior to travel
Fleshing our Lisa Page cryptic email: "potus wants to know everything" allegedly required inclusion of the Steele dossier in the Obama-directed Russian election interference investigation. However, the dossier inclusion did not include any known qualifications at the time this dossier was (1) unvetted, (2) produced by the Clinton campaign or (3) was a known product of Russian disinformation. Comey additionally handed it -unqualified- to President Elect Trump - while surreptitously observing and reporting PEOTUS Trump's reactions to this unqualified dossier- clearly a set-up sting operation.
Zut alors! this is gonna knock Nancy Pelosi's ice cream caper off the front pages. Hope this works out better than that stove-top cold fusion "breakthrough" of a few decades ago.
Echos of Vietnam War body counts, used as surrogates for "winning the war". Should become obvious when comparing all cause death rates in the US for the past five years, did reported Covid-19 deaths increase above and beyond, or merely distort the "normal" reporting numbers.
Jim, that was a very helpful explanation about the role of "sealed indictments". Struggling to keep all the names, code names, dates and redactions in place. Assuming this is the referenced and damning 2018 DOJ Letter - legitimizing in no uncertain terms Steele as a trusted source, and legitimizing the predication for the FISA requests: Forget my $1200 check, Mr Trump. I want the entire $23 million wasted on the Mueller. With punitive damages.
The good news is COVID-19 is the cure for the common flu. Since no one is complaining any longer about getting the regular flu, somehow COVID-19 must have eradicated it. Isn't science great? /s
Jim, could you please explain the significance of finding any 'sealed indictments". Are like they are ready made "insurance policies" waiting to be cashed in? Thanks.
Brian, Cities, counties and states shut themselves down, well before Trump made any federal decision. Particularly in the blue states like California who were the most eager to commit "panic porn", and egregious over-reach under the rubric "public health and safety". Not sure how you get people beyond their own self-inflicted sense of peril. They were already primed to believe the worst was finally upon them, after three relentless years of Orange Man Bad. The final word howver may be the one's uttered by the dweeb in the TP line - I panicked because I saw other people panicking. War babies had JFK shot. Boomers had John Lennon. Millennials had 9-11. Is this national corona shutdown GenX's moment of mortality? The day the snug world one grew up in, was irredeemably over. In the larger sense.
Could one venture that the post-Watergate incarceration of the Nixon team key and secondary players, that no one attempted the same degree of crimes and coverups that emanated from that White House? As well as VP Sprio Agnew also getting caught red-handed taking bribes during his time sitting within the executive offices. So call me naive too, but doing time for doing the crime does appear to work as deterance. Or did the same activity, just go further underground. Lesson from Watergate for me: truth will out. Oh, what tangled webs we weave, when we first choose to deceive. Once one lies, cheats or steals they have turn their lives over to someone else. Not worth it.
Eric, now we know why Nancy Pelosi wanted us to be talking about her ice cream freezer instead of the implosion of Democrat's corona-gate and Democrat's Russia-gate, occurring at the exact same time. Nancy knew what she was doing. Look, a squirrel over here! Grotesque.
Now that we have new vocabulary terms like "panic porn", this author provides a thoughtful analysis of "What is really fueling the Wuhan virus hysteria":
Israeli scientist observes a definite corona pattern in various countries, regardless of mitigation protocols: peaks at 40 days, disappears after 70 days:
David S., you just exposed the Bad Fairies who show up every time at the free health care for all party: rationing, futility of treatment, death panels, triage and cost benefit ratios. We need a national dialogue about about all of these topics before we sign up for Bernie Sander's and Ocasio Cortez's blank check wet dreams. "How can anyone put a price on a human life?" ends all discussions out here in progressive la-la land - the Left Coast.

Next year will we have another shut-down and screaming headlines when the equally deadly and readily transmissible "regular flu season" starts? Or will it depend upon who will be sitting in the White House.

Maybe this was payback for the Opium Wars. China moves in centuries; not minutes.
