A Journal of the Plague Year (60)




May 19, 2020

This Jedi-level troll tweet from Governor Abbott of Texas was in response to the Democrat governors of California and New York and their whining for more federal bailouts from Washington.

It’s really interesting to see the aspiring tyrants ready to arbitrarily impose draconian suppression of rights at the slightest pretext are all Democrats. Democrats running impoverished states. Democrats driving jobs and business away. Democrats refusing to face up to reality and instead focus all their energy on Trump hatred.

“’The time has come’, the walrus said,
‘To speak of other things,
Of shoes and ships and sealing wax,
Of cabbages and kings’…”

The time has come to get the world up off its knees and on to its feet again, and to get back to reality. We now know we are not dealing with anthrax, yellow fever, smallpox, or any of the really bad guys of the bug world, but with a nasty influenza bug.

Destroying the lives and livelihoods of millions is plainly and simply wrong and governments should face up to this.

Less than 5% of deaths are those without the chronic comorbidities of diabetes, morbid obesity, hypertension, dementia and other afflictions of the old (and not so old) and infirm. It is tragic that so many of our old folks in care homes have been struck down, but this WAS a foreseeable event based on past experience, and one that was not heeded by such short-sighted politicians as …Governor Cuomo of New York.

And Mayor de Blasio, the bloviating mayor of New York City, was telling New Yorkers to ride the never-cleaned subway as a rebuke to the “racist Trump” when he quite rightly shut down air travel between China and the US.[here] That, as an MIT report pointed out, was the major epicenter of infection in New York. Thanks, mayor de Blasio, don’t mention it.

The new site Lockdown Sceptics  has oodles of topical information on what’s really going on. Make sure you read the latest critique on the now-infamous modeling of the Bonking Boffin, Neil Ferguson from Imperial College. For my part, it’s time for this nonsense to end. By all means practice common-sense hygiene, even where a mask in confined public spaces like public transport and malls, but this endless “we’re all gonna die unless you remain locked up all year” has got to go.


I have a suggestion: it’s this—all the politicians, bureaucrats, medical experts, and “experts”, and all the computer modelers, every one, be forced to live with no wages, no salary, no income, and no prospect of future employment, until this thing is over. Just like they are forcing all normal working people to endure. And as for the journalists, all of them should be fired and forced to re-apply for their jobs, if they are required, which I doubt.

Until then, I’m not prepared to take any more of their nonsense for one minute longer.

 

Oh, don’t let me forget, President Trump’s letter to the WHO…read the whole thing, it’s definitive…[here]

[snip]…

It is clear the repeated missteps by you and your organization in responding to the pandemic have been extremely costly for the world. The only way forward for the World Health Organization is if it can actually demonstrate independence from China. My Administration has already started discussions with you on how to reform the organization. But action is needed quickly. We do not have time to waste. That is why it is my duty, as President of the United States, to inform you that, if the World Health Organization does not commit to major substantive improvements within the next 30 days, I will make my temporary freeze of United States funding to the World Health Organization permanent and reconsider our membership in the organization. I cannot allow American taxpayer dollars to continue to finance an organization that, in its present state, is so clearly not serving America’s interests.

Sincerely,

Donald Trump
