edwards1 - Kamischke never tries to be helpful. He's always a political tool with no beneficial commentary. I think he is pathetic.


As usual, a fine summary of facts from Vlad. I might add that the mayor of NYC and other NY State health official also downplayed the severity of COVID-19, telling residents to go out to all the public events for the Chinese lunar new year. Nancy Pelosi was seen parading through the streets of Chinatown in San Francisco with residents there to celebrate it. No wonder that NYC is the hotbed for the virus. Intelligence agencies from around the world have estimated that the Chinese have under-reported the amount cases and deaths there by around 12X. This would put their total cases at close to 1 million and deaths at close to 40000. It should also be remembered that President Trump was labeled a racist and xenophobe by Democrats and the media for imposing the Chinese travel ban in late January. Now the same media is not carrying the daily briefings live because the President's approval ratings are rising because of them. The media has chosen to show snippets they can spin to their narrative instead with their lineup of talking (i.e. lying) heads. Is it any wonder that their approval ratings are swirling the drain. As usual, Richard Kamischke misrepresents the facts and in this case is a Chinese apologist and propagandist as well. Great job Kamischke.


Worse Than Politicizing There is a special Circle of Hades for people who attempt to politicize a Chinese virus that has the potential to kill millions of souls worldwide. There is a lower Circle for people who use lies and distortions to accomplish it.

Some facts:

• To the best of our knowledge, the virus germinated in Wuhan in the Communist People’s Republic in early December, 2019;

• The Chinese lied about it and the World Health Organization (United Nations) assured President Trump on January 14, 2020 that there was no evidence that the virus could be spread from human to human transmission;

• On Jan. 17, the CDC and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that American citizens returning from travel-restricted countries would be screened and isolated. CDC on that day also stated that, “based on current information, the risk from 2019-nCoV to the American public is currently deemed to be low.”

• On January 21, one person traveling from China was confirmed to have the virus, as President Trump stated. 3 days later a second case was found, but CDC said the risk was low:

• On January 28, 2020, President Trump expanded U.S. airport screenings to identify travelers showing symptoms and instituted mandatory quarantines:

• On January 30, CDC confirmed the virus could be transmitted person to person;

• On January 30 President Trump created the White House Coronavirus Task Force;

• On January 31 President Trump declared a U.S. Public Health Emergency and banned travel from China;

• On the same day, the Senate voted on additional Impeachment documents;

• On Feb. 4 President Trump directed the USDA to quickly develop diagnostic testing procedures for the virus;

• Feb. 18, CDC said risk to Americans from Coronavirus is low;

Meanwhile, the Task Force was discovering shortages in critical equipment:

• When Obama was elected, the National Stockpile had 100 million fitted and surgical masks – after his botched response to the Mexican Swine Flu, he used all but 12,000 NP5 respirators and 30 million surgical masks, an d never replenished the supply;

• The States failed to maintain their stockpile of supplies of vital equipment, including Michigan and New York. Why do we in Michigan have a bloated Department of Health and Human Services, including

“The Division of Emergency Preparedness & Response (DEPR) is the emergency preparedness and response arm of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The division serves to protect the health of Michigan citizens before, during and after an emergency through the integration of public health and medical preparedness initiatives and by leveraging diverse partnerships. DEPR maintains a dual role in both preparedness planning and in emergency response. These activities encompass all hazards, including natural and man-made disasters, acts of bioterrorism, infectious disease outbreaks and other emergencies that impact the health of the public.”

The foul emissions from Mr. Kamische would leave a ring in the bathtub of the lowest circle.
