If the media and the Democrats are so convinced that Trump's drug treatment is harmful, why aren't they celebrating his decision to take this route? After all, if he should die or end up disabled, they'd have an answer to their prayers.



Thanks for all the work you put into this site. Much appreciated!

Tickerguy said "What he needs to do is direct Bill Barr to file federal 18 USC 242 charges against the mayors and governors (including in DC, which has issued such an order) that ordered Covid+ persons to be allowed into -- or back into -- nursing homes."

Never gonna happen. As George Carlin said - It's a club. And you (we) ain't in it.

Trump could also just declare that the emergency is ended. But he doesn't.

He could also direct Barr to pursue charges against Obama, et al. Barr says that's unlikely.


Voted for the guy. He's either just another shill, or he's playing 4d Chess so well my simple mind just can't follow it. We'll see I guess.

Well instead of issuing your next $1200 on an EBT card, your getting a fancy blue Visa pre paid with pretty white stars on it, feel better? Its welfare for snobs and Trump supporters who constantly bitch about welfare bums with EBT cards. Bad news for Biden and the DNC though, I mean what do you have to promise in the way of freebies to outdo the stable genius?

@Luke- I think that is deliberate to try and force the masses to spend the money on something rather than saving it. An EBT card can be transferred into a bank account and then put in a CD or treasury bond fund. I'm not sure about a pre-paid VISA gift card, I have the suspicion that is only going to work at a store.

You could always sell it on E-bay for a slight discount for the cash.

JP Morgan drops the bomb.

Lockdowns did not change the course of the pandemic and the costs of lockdowns made it worse.

Kolanovic then writes that "the fact that re-opening did not change the course of pandemic is consistent with mentioned studies showing that initiation of full lockdowns did not alter the course of the pandemic either."
...
"while our knowledge of the virus and lack of effectiveness of total lockdowns evolved." However, at the same time, "millions of livelihoods were being destroyed by these lockdowns. Unlike rigorous testing of potential new drugs, lockdowns were administered with little consideration that they might not only cause economic devastation but potentially more deaths than COVID-19 itself."

Karl: Have you given any consideration to any of the "Linux" phones? I have a couple of Pinephones on the way at some point in the next few weeks and wondered if you had played around with anything of that sort. If I can find whatever drawer my old Nexus 5 is in I'll probably look at rooting it and taking Ubuntu Touch for a test drive. Disconnecting from the Android ecosystem is sounding better by the day.

No, mostly because you still have the RIL (closed source) risk and no way around it I'm aware of.

Incredibly painful to watch this as he takes no responsibility for what occured on his watch. His interpretation of some of the graphs is laughable. And how and when did that spike occur? All these cases after the spike when people are basically home? Hmmmm....

"EIP Card recipients can make purchases, get cash from in-network ATMs, and transfer funds to their personal bank account without incurring any fees. They can also check their card balance online, by mobile app, or by phone without incurring fees. The EIP Card can be used online, at ATMs, or at any retail location where Visa is accepted. This free, prepaid card also provides consumer protections available to traditional bank account owners, including protections against fraud, loss, and other errors."

Once you have the card, then it will be easier to eliminate cash too. Track and trace- brought to you by COVID.

Probably a pointless academic question, but since the Fed created the money for those EIP cards to be funded with out of thin air, essentiallyvby buying US treasuries in QE, would the following be a true:

Say I get one of these babies, take it to the ATM, withdraw the cash, and buy a treasury bill with the proceeds. That bill is a claim (liability) on the US gov side and an asset on my side.

When the bill matures I get the cash back with a small amount of interest from the treasury bill. I have essentially loaned my stimulus dough to the government rather than spending it in the economy. Rinse, repeat.

Have I just created a giant circle jerk loop? The money created out of thin air has resulted in a very small amount of additional interest created out of thin air. I just created my own little mini-Fed printing operation?

My head is spinning ... Powell printer go BRRRRR!

The media is also screaming about Trump not wearing a mask. Dr Fauci said we didn't need masks on 60 minutes around March 8. He did say they may help a little but are not a sure thing.

Power corrupts. Let them mandate vaccines and they have a bunch more ideas in the pipeline. Mandatory drugs, implants. tracking, till they just outright kill dissenters.

Good news is that, according to the owner who called in on Howie Carr this evening, he's still open and fighting the $300 fine.

Sort of off topic but as I stated on one post my wife and I work at a community bank. Anyway she can see who gets the PPP loans and when she told me that one of the local hospitals got 5.2 million PPP loan I was pissed. They just left 36 people go because they didn't have any business coming in. Now I wonder how many of these ****ers got these loans.

Question on a tangentially related topic...

I heard today Donnie was out there making noises about States that are setting up mail in voting and threatening retaliation.

Didn't Bush v Gore settle that the State's can do what the **** they want in regards to elections?

Reading/listening to your blog every day of this crisis has kept me sane. You have been bang on with your assessment of this virus so far and i just hope your assessment of the economic fallout will be less accurate.

Here is an interesting bit of news from Italy(Milan) which shows that random samples of blood donors with no symptoms showed that 4.6per cent already had anti bodies present before the first domestically transmitted disease on Feb 21st. That rose to 7 % by begining of April. Relative small sample size of 800 random samples. If this is to be believed then as the samples were random, we can assume that this virus had been around a lot longer than the official line. So why were we not hearing of over loaded ICU units beforehand.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-05-21/c....

"A study by Milan's Polyclinic hospital indicates the coronavirus was circulating in the Italian city before the first domestically transmitted case was confirmed in a town less than an hour away."

"The study of a random sample of blood donors with no symptoms showed that 4.6 per cent already had antibodies against the virus at the start of the epidemic."

With regard to HCQ i have heard this last day that Brazil is offering chloroquine if requested and also Australia is trialling HCQ to its front line health staff. My question is why has it taken so long because a Queensland Uni were touting this at the very start of the crisis.
