Liberal Media Showboats with 100,000 Dead

Tim Graham, CNS News

The nation’s largest national newspapers have all made dramatic front pages out of the 100,000 number. The New York Times came first on Sunday, USA Today followed on Wednesday with photos of the dead. The Washington Post waited for the number and printed some actual news stories on the front page. CNN promoted each and every one of these performative pages, which strongly enhanced the notion that this wasn’t just a number. It was a political strategy. We can all lament this death toll, but some clearly are beating their breasts in the most opportunistic way imaginable. It doesn’t honor the victims. It merely exploits them.

How Many COVID-19 Deaths Are There?

John Fund and Phil Kerpen, National Review

There is no doubt this virus flashed through nursing homes with devastating effect. We have cataloged the death toll in these spreadsheets. But if we don’t fix the definition, residents of nursing homes (which are now being tested wholesale for coronavirus) who have mild or asymptomatic infections will show up in the COVID-19 death count when they die from any of the maladies from which people die. The median nursing-home stay before death is just five months. If this definitional problem isn’t fixed, the tallies will lose all contact with reality, with attendant public panic and additional economic hardship.

There’s No Proof Killing The Economy Saves Lives

The evidence is growing that lockdowns did not have the kind of life saving effect that their advocates, such as Dr. Anthony Fauci and Democrat Governor of Virginia Dr. Ralph Northam, claimed they would. We urge CHQ readers and friends to read Grading Our Governors: A Report Card on Reopening States' Economies and if your Governor has not earned an “A” or a “B” to call him or her to demand that the economy of your state be reopened.

Dr. Anthony Fauci Is A Carpenter With Only One Tool

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
In his dire warnings, that not unexpectedly drew praise from Democrats who need unemployment to be at a high level to win this November's election.  Dr. Fauci reminds me of a carpenter with only one tool – which in his case will be a clamp on the economy. President Trump should reject Democrat calls to run the country on Dr. Fauci’s one problem – one tool approach.

GOP Must Stop Pelosi’s $3 Trillion Vote Fraud Power Grab

It’s hard to know where to start explaining just how bad Speaker Pelosi’s next gen bailout bill is – but we will start with the institutionalization of California-style vote fraud.  The toll-free Capitol Switchboard number (1-866-220-0044), we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators and Representative tell them Pelosi’s $3 trillion vote stealing plan is a non-starter and that America needs to get back to work.

How Does COVID-19 Fit In China’s Bio-Weapons Program?

The focus of our preliminary assessment of the Chinese actions was on the economic warfare domain, but that is only one of the seven domains of warfare recognized in Chinese military thinking. But a must-read article by our friend Clare M. Lopez raises a new and even more frightening possibility: The Chinese Communist Party intends to militarily defeat, occupy, and colonize the U.S. and biological weapons figure prominently in their strategy.

Evidence is Building that the Chinese Developed COVID-19 to use as an Economic Weapon Against the United States

If you are a loyal Chinese Communist, you see President Trumps actions, as an Act of War. This American President is looking to stop China’s accent as the world’s leading economic and military power. That cannot stand.  As the virus spread, the Chinese realized that COVID-19 would be an effective economic weapon. Which may be why they cancelled domestic flights in and out of Wuhan, but allowed international flights to continue, hoping the virus would spread to the United States.

Conservative Leaders To GOP: No State and Local Government Bailouts in COVID-19 Relief Legislation

As Congress contemplates a future relief package, the conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project, led by Chairman Alfred S. Regnery, urge Congress to reject state and local government cash bailouts in favor of policies which give states the flexibility to address the COVID-19 crisis according to the needs of their state – including providing relief from onerous regulations, unfunded federal mandates, and policies which stifle economic growth.

State lacked common sense in nursing homes coronavirus approach

Michael Goodwin, New York Post

Executives described frantic efforts to segregate infected patients, but not every facility had the staff or space to do it. Most lacked sufficient protective equipment. The disease has claimed more than 3,500 souls in nursing and rehab centers, or nearly 25 percent of the total known deaths in the state. There is no way to know exactly how many died as a result of the state order, but the number is certainly not zero. The cause and effect relationship is obvious. Meanwhile, Cuomo, after his initial denial of knowledge, quickly became a forceful defender of the policy. Day by day last week, he also began shifting the blame to the nursing homes.
