The Republicans are Lucy and We are Charlie Brown

It appears that the Republicans are showing their soft underside again. And it is also evident that very few of them have learned a thing from the last 3-1/2 years of the Trump presidency – namely how to fight back and do it publically without concern of voter “backlash.” Which of course never comes, as we’ve learned from the president.

Christopher Bedford at the Federalist writes that, beyond a bi-partisan agreement to provide free coronavirus testing, “Washington politicians appear poised to fail the country once again, agreeing Friday evening to a one-sided and partisan coronavirus bill disguised as compromise. It’s not a shock to any conservatives in Washington and probably isn’t surprising to Republican voters either. They’re used to betrayal.”

Oh, the Republicans always start out gangbusters, as they did this past Friday, proposing aid packages for struggling small businesses in the form of no-interest loans and a rollback of the payroll tax. Predictably, the dems did what they do – introduced a package of giveaways to extend the welfare state.

But as predictably as the Sun rising, the dems got virtually everything on their wish list and Republicans got bupkis. read more

Joke of the Day

Minnesota farmer named Olie had a car accident. He was hit by a truck owned by the Eversweet Company.

In court, the Eversweet Company’s hot-shot attorney questioned him thus:

“Didn’t you say to the state trooper at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine?”

Olie responded: “Vell, I’lla tell you vat happened dere. I’d yust loaded my fav’rit cow, Bessie, into da…”

“I didn’t ask for any details,” the lawyer interrupted. “Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine!’?”

Olie said, “Vell, I’d yust got Bessie into da trailer and I vas drivin’ down da road…” read more

WND Exclusive – Would the ‘Squad’ use an Israel-developed coronavirus vaccine?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Will anti-Semites, like those in the “Squad,” reject a COVID-19 vaccine if it is developed by Israel?

Regarding the coronavirus, as things improve in China, things will likely worsen in America. However, they are not likely to get as bad as it is in others countries, like Italy.

But we have to be careful about comparisons. The effects of this virus are apparently amplified in the elderly and those with pre-existing health issues.

What isn’t widely publicized is that Italy’s median age is much higher than other European nations, thus it is being hit much harder than nations with younger overall populations.

That being said, the reason why things are improving in China while worsening in the U.S. and elsewhere is the timeline. read more

Video Podcast – The Pandemic of 2020 is a Good Crisis

by: Brent Smith

Deborah Frank Feinen, the mayor of Champaign, Illinois, issued a coronavirus-related emergency declaration Friday that will allow her office to ban the sale of guns, ammunition, and alcohol, take possession of private property and prohibit the entry and exit to and from the city.

The fear of the coronavirus is more of a pandemic than the virus itself and the democrats and the press are fueling that fear.

An irrational fear has gripped our nation like almost we’ve seen in the past. It’s much worse than the last pandemic that killed 10s of thousands. Yet strangely there was not the overhyped alarmism then that there is today.

I discuss the reason behind it. read more

Another Trump Victory – Remain in Mexico Policy Stands

In an 8-1 decision with only the wise Latina dissenting. What a shocker!!

from the Blaze:

The Supreme Court handed President Donald Trump a win on Wednesday with a court order giving his administration a judicial green light to continue enforcement of its “Migrant Protection Protocols,” otherwise known as the “remain in Mexico” policy for the time being.

Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a lower court’s decision blocking the policy from going into effect in Arizona and California — the two border states within its geographical jurisdiction.

That injunction was set to go into effect on Thursday, before the Supreme Court stepped in this week. read more

Canadian Healthcare Ain’t Great

by: Brent Smith

With America currently in the grip of coronavirus madness, healthcare is again front and center.

Will there be a treatment? How long will it take to develop and once it is, how long will the wait be for the administration of it once it is available?

Well, it may all depend on what country you reside in.

Many in America, especially leftists, complain about the American healthcare system. They would prefer something like, for example the Canadian system, where everyone is covered, its all free and it’s far superior to the American system.

So once a vaccine is produced, let’s all run across the border to Canada, because Canadian healthcare is great!

Or is it?

French-Canadian entrepreneur Alain Lambert has a different take on it – and it’s not quite as rosy.
