    I find it very alarming that the approval rating for the way that Orange Disaster has been handling the coronvirus situation has risen. What does that say about Americans in general? For me, it confirms that most are uneducated about so many things, unable to see beyond what their president (whoever it is at that time)tells them is so, so individualistic that they cannot understand that in times of serious crisis (as now) community bonding and cooperation is more important, rather than the individual and his/her needs. Am so glad I am not from there nor live there, but I have friends who are from there and do still live there, and I worry about them.

    The level on data bending is amazing XD <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="142">2:22</a> hospital admissions graph. ADMISSIONS!!! how many times have you had influenza-like symptoms and had to be admitted to a hospital every time? But in times of 24/7 media coverage of corona virus makes everyone with symptoms rush to a medical unit and they are all admitted and isolated in case they have corona... please stop bending data in times like these. I pray for all your souls

    This is the biggest false flag that has ever been perpetrated on the world, they want their NWO! People need to wake up. Never take any vaccines they push either it is a trap. Also, remember if they say it will increase it is because they are going to roll out this 60Gh 5G that is being installed in the schools that is why they are shut down, this is what happened in China it had installed the 60Gh 5G in Wuhan. This virus is all a coverup for something else. The Deep State Shadow Government wants their NWO. They can't have it until they secure their new monetary global digital currency first. The thing is they want depopulation and total control of the world's population.

    $250billion of dollars for bailout was on the news. The ventilator cost 5000 dollars. They needed 15k, so let me round that up to 20K, coz they are underestimating this. Thats 100 Million dollars. The rest cost about $2000 dollars for each medical staff working there. Even if I put 1 million workers, that would still cost 2 billion dollars. $1500 for each household is not needed if all the money is spent on healing people right away Imo. Politicians never do anything the right way. And lets be real, that is everybody in the government.

    How very predictable; the ABC takes every chance to misrepresent everything the president says, shitcans his every attempt to encourage and motivate the nation, and totally ignores all the good, sensible things he is doing. All the while contrasting him with a mean spirited communist (Cuomo) who selfishly demanded Trump give him all the available respirators in the country, and to hell with everyone else. You are the most despicable people on the planet.

    wtf. murrica so stone age. your government has been hijacked by terrorists. it's the land of the fee, home of the slaves. your "freedom" remains as far away as your universal healthcare. if you think you're free, try to park some place and remain in your car for an hour. if you think you're free, try collecting your rainwater. if you're free, try to chat in front of some store with a buddy for an hour or two. your "freedom" is a farce... don't get me wrong. it's not much different here. but at least i'm not delusional about it. the nazis won, really. that's what it is. this money religion rules over everyone and everything. and who's got a lot of that imaginary money stuff? that's right. corporations. the dudes who pay for legislation in their favor - not yours.

    Anything that involves a collective and organized response which can only be coordinated by the government is considered "socialism" in the US. Unfortunately, when confronting a large scale crisis like large scale war (not bombing some third world nation to bits as done until now), environmental disaster, economic collapse, a pandemic, it is the only efficient response. The cold war anti-communist propaganda has been so effective so as to render this type of response very difficult. This has turned the US into a fragile giant.

    <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="1298">21:38</a> Correction: today we know that patient 0 of the spanish flu was from Kansas. So it's more likely that the US soldiers brought the disease to Europe rather than bringing it back to the US. The name "spanish flu" was given to the desease because at that time only the spanish press was allowed to talk about it (war censorship).

    Stardate August 2020 roving bands of Martial Law Justice Warriors shoot on sight any one who was reported sneezing or coughing or 'breathing funny." Granny died anyways, naturally of something else. Candles and matches and bullets are the new toilet paper now here in August. The plague infested starving rats grew bold in the big cities as their food sources were choked off in the lock down. Running the streets and into apartments that smelled of food. Funny did the first virus did not spread first domestically in China before boarding on international planes. The news man said "Two white guys in MAGA hats' are to blame for new stone age and dead bodies rotting in street, creating new diseases, THE BIG BLACK RAT PLAGUE.

    December 31: COVID virus outbreak reported in China January 22: “ And we have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China, and we have it under control. It’s going to be just fine.” January 24: “ “It will all work out well.” January 30: “ “We have it very well under control. We have very little problem in this country at this moment - five. And those people are all recuperating successfully.” January 31: “ Well, we pretty much shut it down coming in from China. We have a tremendous relationship with China, which is a very positive thing. Getting along with China, getting along with Russia, getting along with these countries.” February 10: “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away,” February 19: “ I think the numbers are going to get progressively better as we go along.” February 23: “ very much under control,” and added: “We had 12, at one point. And now they’ve gotten very much better. Many of them are fully recovered.” February 26: “ We’re going down, not up. We’re going very substantially down, not up.” February 27: “ It’s going to disappear. One day - it’s like a miracle - it will disappear.” March 2: “We’re talking about a much smaller range” March 4: “It’s very mild,” March 7: “I’m not concerned at all.” March 10: “It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away.” March 13 : Trump declares nationаl emergency

    If this crisis has taught us anything it is that we need to reduce our reliance on China. Medical goods should be manufactured locally where possible and we should start moving manufacturing to India, SE Asia and Africa to diversify. The fact China silenced the whistleblowers while allowing thousands of people to travel throughout the world months after they knew about this should never be forgotten.
