Gov Coumo Taking, Not Stealing

New York Governor Andrew Coumo doesn't think taking is stealing.  He explained during his daily press conference yesterday that borrowing private property without permission is not stealing.  Coumo said that if he borrows your drill, without your permission, he will use it.  Maybe he'll give it back later.  Maybe he'll give it back when you need your own drill.  If he doesn't give it back, maybe he'll pay for it later at some point.  Maybe he'll buy you a replacement at some point in the future.  Maybe.  Such is his logic for taking ventilators and other medical equipment from private hospitals and companies.

Schumer Ignorance

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has been sleeping on the job.  During an interview yesterday morning, he called for the Trump administration to put a "military" leader in charge of the logistic fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.  Schumer claims that federal resources, like ventilators, are not being produced fast enough nor being distributed wisely.  Governor Andrew Coumo of New York State has been complaining about a lack of ventilators.  He has demanded that all 20,000 ventilators from federal stockpiles be sent to his state.  Even though there are other 'hot spots', like New Jersey, Michigan and Louisiana also in need of additional equipment and supplies.  But Schumer has been too distracted by trying to politicize the Coronavirus pandemic.  About two weeks ago, President Trump assigned Rear Admiral John Polowczyk, logistics expert for the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, to the White House Coronavirus Response Task Force.

Very Tough Two Weeks Ahead

President Trump and Doctors Fauci and Birx are warning that the next two weeks may be "very tough".  During yesterday's daily White House briefing, Trump and his key Coronavirus Response Task Force members explained why the nationwide social distancing guidelines were extended till April 30.  Using graphs and charts, America was given the grim numbers as to what may happen shortly.  Some computer models show a potential death rate from the COVID-19 pandemic may cost our nation 100,000 to 240,000 dead.  States like Michigan, Louisiana and Illinois are expected to have sharp peaks in cases and deaths by April 10.  Pennsylvania and other states will peak by April 16.  Alabama and others may peak around April 20.

Trump Extends Isolation Till April 30

President Donald Trump extended the White House Coronavirus mitigation guidelines until April 30.  On Saturday, Trump went to Norfolk to send off the USNS Comfort hospital ship to assist New York City.  The USNS Mercy arrived in Los Angeles on Friday.  Both ships are well equipped with 1,000 beds to accept non-Coronavirus medical cases, relieving local hospitals to deal with the pandemic.  On Sunday, Trump and his Coronavirus Response Task Force held a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.  The big news was that the protocols to slow down the spread of the pandemic have been extended until April 30.  These were originally scheduled to end today, Day 15, of the mitigation plan.  However, the virus is showing no sign of subsiding.

Coronavirus Study Wrong

The Coronavirus study which became the basis of the Imperial College of London computer model was wrong.  VERY WRONG!  Drafted by an epidemiologist Neil Ferguson, (NOT historian Nial Ferguson), the study predicted dire infection and death rates for the UK and the United States.  The subsequent computer model predicted some 500,000 deaths in the UK and over 4 Million deaths in America.  The model assumed that at least 20 percent of the populations of both countries would become infected.  But, reality paints a different story.  Based on data from China, South Korea and now Italy, the potential infection rates are now much lower, so much so that new predictions are that the UK may only have some 20,000 deaths due to the Coronavirus.  Not much more than a typical flu season.

Senate Agrees To Stimulus Plan

Early this morning at about 1:30am, the U.S. Senate reached an agreement on a $2 Trillion dollar stimulus plan.  The Coronavirus relief bill should be voted on later today, then move to the House of Representatives.  The $2 Trillion dollar package includes some $250 Billion for direct payments to most American adults of $1,200 each for those earning $75,000 or less.  Those earning up to $99,000 per year will get less.  A family of four should get about $3,400 in early April.  The bill stalled over the weekend when Senate Democrats tried to add other items into the package, such as $35 Million dollars for the Kennedy Center, tax rebates for wind and solar power, and other typical Liberal agenda stuff.  Nancy Pelosi then warned that she will put together an even worse bill in the House.  But public reaction to this nonsense seems to have had an affect.

NY Gov Coumo Greed, Stupidity

New York Governor Andrew Coumo is getting greedy for ventilators.  He wants the federal government to send all 20,000 from our national stockpile to his state immediately.  Forget the rest of the states whose governors are also begging for more of everything.  Coumo seems to think that only New York deserves to live and survive the Coronavirus pandemic.  FEMA has already tapped some 3,000 HHS ventilators from the emergency stockpile and shipped them to several states.  New York City, alone, got 400 of those, with 1,600 to the rest of the state.  An additional 2,000 will be going to NY today.  The Army Corps of Engineers has already deployed to New York State to repurpose four large buildings into make-shift hospitals.  The US Navy is also preparing to send one of its two hospital ships to NYC.  Some 600 military doctors, nurses and medical technicians are also deployed to NY state.  But Coumo is greedy for more.

Pandemic Economics

The Senate failed to pass a Coronavirus relief bill last night.  Senate Democrats and Republicans are squabbling over details.  Somehow, the proposed $1.8 Trillion dollar plan has less economic relief than the $1.3 Trillion dollar package proposed by the Trump White House.  Over in the House, Nancy Pelosi vows to put forward her own version, further complicating and delaying assistance to the American People.  Some of the points being bickered over are the amount of direct payments to citizens to help them through the pandemic crisis.  Also, details like whether or not there will be one or two such payments, as well as whether support to corporations will allow to be used for stock buy-backs.  While this goes on, there is now much chatter about whether or not the Coronavirus response is doing more harm than good.  That the potential harm to our nation's economy is worse than the potential of 2 to 4 million dead Americans should restrictions on social gatherings be lifted.

California Lockdown For Coronavirus

A California lockdown has been ordered by Governor Gavin Newsom.  Illinois and New York State have also ordered all non-essential employees to stay home effective Sunday at midnight.  These decisions come after the latest Coronavirus update news from Italy.  Over 600 people died in just the past 24 hours.  Spain and France are also showing dramatic increases in the numbers of infected and dead from the COVID-19 virus. Italy, which has about a tenth of the population of the United States, has now surpassed China, as far as we are told, in the number of deaths.  I put that caveat there because it is hard to say what has really happened in China.  What they have admitted to is pretty scary as it is!

Donald Trump Wartime President

Donald Trump described himself as a "wartime president" as he announced invoking the Defense Production Act.  This will enable him to command private industry to manufacture strategic goods needed in the fight against them Coronavirus. As the nation's automakers close down automobile production, they are now looking into retooling to produce ventilators and other vital medical equipment and supplies.  The Act also gives Trump other powers to wave red tape and statutes to speed such production.  Trump has also directed the U.S. Navy to ready its two, large hospital ships, the Mercy and the Comfort.  Both vessels are 1,000 bed hospitals with full labs, operating rooms, etc.  There are also plans to convert cruise liners into medical facilities if necessary down the road.
