Happy Easter

matt - deplore me if you must

Been in touch with kids and family and all is well. Going a bit stir crazy but somehow filling in the gaps in time with some meaningful work.

The garage is spotless and ready for some upcoming projects. We'll see whether those take place.

I hope that all are having a lovely day. Hope is risen. It is time for us to plan for when things get back to the nw normal. We don't know what the future holds, but with hope and hard work, all is possible.

China tries to export exotic animals after banning eating snakes, bats

The finance ministry has issued new incentives to get the creatures out of the country, offering tax rebates to ship out animal products such as edible snakes and turtles, primate meat and rhino horns, the Wall Street Journal reported.

A willowed answer to Rich's "why":

Rich.

1. Maybe run Trump off in November. Bonus points.

2. Test drive the fear driven Off button to see just how many of their rights We the Sheeple will willingly hand over.

3. And once it has passed, collect for future use any freedoms that did not go right back to the Sheeple. (Think 9/11) (Think TARP). Add those to the Toolbox. More bonus points.

4. Test drive a Cloward-Plivens episode and at the least untether the masses from any sense of a managed financial universe using unlimited Federal Debt and Spending to break us stragglers.

5. More bonus points for distracting from the Coup Plotters and the Dem candidates.

6. See how fast Americans will dump their churches.

So many sparkling lights, it must be Christmas not Easter.

What I find I interesting about the SEIU mask story is how the Feds magically inserted themselves into the transaction. They were planning on stealing the masks.

Threadkiller

Happy Easter, TM. Thank you for keeping this place up and running.


Happy Easter everyone!

Another Bob

Which "they"? The Feds or the SEIU?

Another Bob

Never mind, saw the link. SEIU.

Threadkiller

The Feds.

MissMarple2

Which Feds, TK? I think perhaps the FBI was involved.

Threadkiller

From the link:


U.S. Atty. Scott Brady of the Western District of Pennsylvania said FBI agents and prosecutors stumbled onto the arrangement while looking into whether they could intercept the masks for the Federal Emergency Management Agency under the Defense Production Act. …

Intercept equals steal.

MissMarple2

Threadkiller,

Oh, I see you found the paragraph that clued me in as well.

Threadkiller

I don’t see the SEIU being dirty other than they were creating a fake narrative that they had been working on this diligently. They then negotiated with some used car salesmen. The Fox story on this concludes that the salesman was not scheming. He was also duped.

Threadkiller
Neither the union nor the Pittsburgh businessman are under investigation and appear to have been fooled by the international scammers, Brady said. No money was exchanged as part of the deal.

https://www.foxnews.com/us/fbi-coronavirus-scam-39m-masks-california-union-hospitals-kaiser-permanente

Time the two takeaways are that Unions piss away a lot of money without any concern and the Feds are coming for your possessions.

Manuel Transmission

Happy Easter from the great Northwest. Been beautiful out here for over a week and at least another one to follow. Mid 50s and dry. The Rufous hummers have been ravaging the feeder. Set up my spotter scope to eyeball them on the feeder. They are full frame. With their backs to the sun their little chest marking feathers flare like charcoal on a windy fire.

The only bad news is that my sidekick made another trip to the local hospital to jumpstart his afib heart. Second time in a few months. So that means he has to go off island to see his cardiologist in Bellingham Monday, which puts him on another 14 day clock. Fortunately our work flow is at a good point to walk away for awhile, so I’m thinking about pretending this is a good time for a vacation. I have a 10 yr old boat project and a 3 yr old car project that I otherwise can’t seem to focus on.

If the Fake News Opposition Party is pushing, with all their might, the fact that President Trump “ignored early warnings about the threat,” then why did Media & Dems viciously criticize me when I instituted a Travel Ban on China? They said “early & not necessary.” Corrupt Media!

Kathy Hughes From a patriot friend that is under cyber quarantine. Asked that I share for her.
Here’s the real timeline of what happened (all of this BEFORE we had even one death in the US) :
1/6 CDC issues travel advisory for Wuhan.
1/11 CDC tweets about corona related “pneumonia outbreak in China”
1/14 WHO tweets that there is no evidence of human to human transmission.
1/17 CDC started doing health screenings at 3 airports of travelers from China.
1/21 first case in US for someone who traveled directly from Wuhan.
1/23 WHO again says no human to human transmission outside of China.
1/27 WHO raises alert level but is still saying China has it contained.
1/28 CDC states “ While CDC considers covid a serious situation and is taking preparedness measures, the immediate risk in the US is considered low.”
1/29 White House announces Coronavirus Task Force created. Note - this is despite the WHO downplaying the threat!
1/31 Trump bans travel from China.
Media and multiple Democrats slam his decision calling it racist/xenophobic.
2/5 Trump acquitted (impeachment).
2/5 Chuck Schumer in a tweet continues to call Trumps’ travel ban from China “premature.”
2/7 White House’s Coronavirus Task Force gives press briefing.
2/9 White House Coronavirus Task Force meets with all governors regarding virus.
2/12 CDC waiting for approval from Chinese for CDC team to travel to China.
2/18 HHS announces partnership to develop vaccine.
2/21 Italy identifies its very first case in their country.
2/21 CDC tweets that it is working with States for preparedness.
2/24 Trump sent letter to Congress asking for $25B for virus effort.
2/24 Nancy Pelosi made a stop in Chinatown and encouraged people to “please come and visit and enjoy Chinatown.”
2/25 there is still no reported community spread in the US!!! (Per CDC tweet.)
2/27 first community transmission in US.
2/27 Trump appoints Pence to coordinate efforts.
2/29 FIRST reported Covid19 death in US.
It is helpful to look at the actual timeline. All of this happened BEFORE the 1st death in US.
I got most of this info from CDC tweets so anyone can look it up to check for accuracy. There were many more actions in between, I just took some highlights. Trump announces there are 2 medicines that could really help battle this virus. D’s and their 🐶 in the media immediately attack him calling him irresponsible. Accusing him of giving people false hope and started to claim nothing has been approved to treat the virus.
Fast forward 6 days and NY governor Cuomo AKA Nipples says the same thing. Says there's two drugs they will start trying to treat this virus. Suddenly the D’s and media all start saying about Cuomo this is what great leadership looks like. Gtfoh you lying dishonest scumbags have no shame, no credibility or any resemblance of integrity within you all. All that matters to these #%**%% is to attack Trump it certainly is not American lives. The media is the enemy of the people and that has become a undeniable unequivocal fact.

I am sure this virus though very contagious, will abate pretty soon
Agree Fauci’s days are numbered and that Acosta will ask everyday what happened to him.
I find I no longer care about the next election,
If people are stupid enough to believe a man with dementia can do a better job than an alert, accomplished businessman than they deserve what they get.
The whole Dem primary was a travesty and I am sick of the blatant hatred and dishonesty of the Dems and the media.

Well, I DO care because of my children and grandchildren, because I will have to listen to the media chortle about winning, and I want henry's business, as well as others I know about, to survive.

In addition, I am pretty sure that if Biden wins, they will drum up some terrible charges against President Trump and put him on trial, along with his kids, and we will be living in a replica of the Roman Empire, only much less competent or aesthetically pleasing.

Daughter says there's been several at the hospital but that she's personally treated just one COVID sufferer who was hospitalized for three days and released. I think they hospitalized him solely because of the diagnosis; she says he exhibited typical flu symptoms, was in his 40's, and wasn't actually in bad shape. She also notes that non-COVID people coming to the ER seem to be waiting longer than usual to decide to come in, as they're sicker than usual. The son-in-law is in the COVID unit at a different hospital and he did, alas, have one patient who didn't make it.

I believe that both San Diego and Riverside are counting the same death:

https://www.countynewscenter.com/covid-19-deaths-now-at-seven-public-health-order-extended/

The Riverside website is a real pos so I am having difficulty looking at their day to day tracking. But I am working on it.


IMO, I have uncovered two double counted deaths. I will post documentation if I am correct.

Extraneus

I made my living beating up engineers who didn't have their shit together, while at the same time teaching the younger ones by example. Not bragging, that's just what I ended up doing. I probably would have been happier doing something else. But after spending over 30 years reviewing and critiquing data analyses, I'm finding the medical field very frustrating. I know there are many smart people involved, so I'm concluding that there are unspoken impediments to their ability to report the facts. HIPPA? Something like that. Some legal threat. Otherwise, we'd be buried in data by now, including on eyeglasses. Whatever it is is pernicious and impeding our ability to intelligently respond to current conditions. I realize this is a feature to some people rather than a bug, but it's quite frustrating.
