Prior to the introduction of the COVID-19-Coronavirus-Wuhan-Chinese pandemic, all we heard was how great President Trump’s economy was and how it made him virtually unbeatable against any stiff the Democrats propped up against him.
Here’s the reality. By most traditional measures, the economy is stronger than it’s been in over three decades, especially where job creation is concerned. Trump’s policy of tax relief and deregulation—the president likes to brag his administration has eliminated more than a dozen regulations for each new one it has imposed—has led to the creation of the three most important things in U.S. politics: jobs, jobs and more jobs.
Even if some are better off than others, most everyone is better off now than they were four years ago.

The Coronavirus essentially wiped that all out within a month. The very historic low employment numbers the media were hesitant to report prior to the economic shutdown are now being repeated hourly with partisan glee.
The stock market, jobs, Constitutional freedoms, toilet paper, common sense, all dashed and the timing couldn’t have been better for Democrats. They have a near-senile presidential frontrunner facing numerous sexual assault accusations who’s always a gaffe away from daily mockery. Their Russia-collusion and Trump impeachment attempts landed with a loud thoom and because of their Election 2020 desperation, the pandemic became a crisis too good to waste.
Donald Trump has been fighting against the hostile liberal media and #DeepState coup d’etat since his candidacy, through his transition and administration. Isn’t it convenient that both the media and insubordinate government employees are the two most destructive entities and are virtually untouched monetarily? While millions of Americans have lost their jobs and are awaiting government assistance, the media and government workers still get paid whether they show up in the office or work from home.
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
From the onset of the COVID-19 “pandemic”, we were given hellacious predictions (based on conveniently fluctuating garbage-in-garbage-out “models”) of hundreds of thousands, if not millions of American deaths.

Hold up. Time for another downward revision….
Scary shit, to be sure. But like most things we’re told by Democrat pundits via the media that turn out to be incorrect, the retractions and/or apologies never meet the same decibel level as their initial shouts from the mountain tops.
If the Coronavirus was treated as another kind of flu and no big deal was made of it, would it have had the same effect on the our way of life? For example, it turns out thousands of Chinese flew in and out of San Francisco and Los Angeles during the ramp up of the current pandemic, yet California is nowhere near a “hotspot” despite having USA’s highest population of near 40 million people.
One theory has been consistently attacked by the media, health and government officials.
The theory of “herd immunity”.
If the virus keeps spreading, eventually so many people will have been infected and (if they survive) become immune that the outbreak will fizzle out on its own as the germ finds it harder and harder to find a susceptible host. This phenomenon is known as herd immunity.

It could be argued had this particular Coronavirus wasn’t hyped to the point of essentially shutting down the nation, it may have come and went and few would have noticed. Yes, to date over 16,000 are of COVID-19 attributed death but that number is much lower than annual influenza deaths today’s Coronavirus opportunists routinely blew off.
We’ve seen how the Democrats and their cohorts in the media and government have reacted to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some have rejected and summarily demonized hydroxychloroquine: a possible remedy mentioned by President Trump that’s had consistent success stories worldwide.
“Sixty-five percent of physicians across the United States said they would prescribe the anti-malaria drugs chloroquine or hydroxychloroquine to treat or prevent COVID-19 in a family member,” the survey, which questioned 1,271 doctors in 50 states, found. “Only 11 percent said they would not use the drug at all.”

Who ya gonna believe: your doctor or Brian Stelter?
For some strange reason, when politicians and the well-connected catch the virus, they take hydroxychloroquine, get better and give credit where credit is due.
State Rep. Karen Whitsett (D-Detroit) found out she had tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) the day her friend and House colleague died from it. Her health was deteriorating fast and she prevailed upon her doctor to get hydroxychloroquine for her.
“I thank God the president of the United States mentioned that drug because it did save me,” Whitsett said.

We’ve had governors, mayors and local officials (exhibiting the very dictator-like behavior President Trump is accused of) ordering the shutdown of select gathering places, businesses, travel, education, elections, boldly limiting freedom of movement of their citizens, while using their infinite wisdom in decide what is “essential”. They justify their authoritarian acts that temporarily suspends the United States Constitution… for “public safety” reasons.
Then again, if you’re a friend or relative of a politician or member of the privileged elite, those rules become optional which again brings into question the true seriousness of this “pandemic”.
We also have politicians, government officials and medical professionals suggesting we should keep that “social distancing” practice for (depending on whom you hear) a few months to a year and a half. While the stock market is attempting to show some signs of life, attempts are still being made to keep a foot on the neck of the economy until the presidential election.
There are a lot of players who still stand to benefit from the economic paralysis of the United States.
Joe Biden and Democrats are obvious but the Chinese government is the other major potential beneficiary. President Trump revision of trade “deal” has not only had a leveling of the playing field effect but has also exposed President Xi Jinping as weak against the United States. Admitting responsibility for the virus release, thus exposing China to a world of liability would be political suicide. Keeping the United States and President Trump occupied shows the similar interests Chinese and Democrats have and could have no problem working unofficially in concert.
While the American people have been instructed not to use the Coronavirus pandemic as an excuse for political opportunism, the political class once again exempted themselves.
House Majority Whip James Clyburn reportedly described the coronavirus relief package currently being debated in Congress as a “tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision,” the South Carolina Democrat allegedly said on a phone call with fellow members of his party last week.

While the Wuhan virus was not created in the United States, it has been successfully weaponized by Democrats and their media to destroy the American economy while their livelihoods were assured. Aside from the inconvenience of movement limitations, they’re fine.
Donald Trump has been punished, Americans who voted for him and those who were considering voting for him in November have been warned. The historic economy has been left in splinters and Democrats believe they can now do anything they want despite not being totally in power. This has gone from a pandemic to a plandemic.
We’ve yet to see just how far the Democrats will go to implement it.
Give ’em an inch and they think they’re rulers
It didn’t take long for us to find out just how much power the elected believe they have over us all.
There’s nothing like a crisis to bring clarity. The response of some mayors and governors to the coronavirus pandemic in recent days has made it clear they think they have unlimited and arbitrary power over their fellow citizens, that they can order them to do or not do just about anything under the guise of protecting public health.
We’ve now witnessed local and state governments issue decrees about what people can and cannot buy in stores, arrest parents playing with their children in public parks, yank people off public buses at random, remove basketball rims along with private property, ticket churchgoers, and in one case try—and fail—to chase down a lone runner on an empty beach. All of this, we’re told, is for our own good.

As in many cases, the truth will eventually come out and we’ll see if all of this was indeed warranted. Comfortable politicians and elitists have no problem if those under them suffer as long as what they see as a “greater good” is accomplished. So, if the little people lose Constitutional freedoms, if not a few lives here and there… well, shit happens.
