    HONEST QUESTION: when did managing or containing the virus AND keeping the economy open become mutually exclusive concepts? It is mind-boggling, to me, that people can’t wrap their heads around the fact that COVID & the ECONOMY are interconnected. We cannot have a fully-functioning economy that is dependent on consumer spending if the health of those consumers is in crisis.

    "No one says that [Trump caused the pandemic]" Are you SURE? Biden led at the last debate, essentially placing the deaths of 200,000+ on Trump's head. The Democrats pretend that, had Hillary been in office, this once in a century pandemic would have been a minor annoyance. Biden's entire campaign has been, "Your grandma is dead because Trump didn't tell people to wear masks." Why does Fauci get off w/no blame after admitting to lying about masks?

    Trump never made any concerted effort to bring the country together to organise a response to the virus, it was all about optics. Here in Tasmania, we haven't had a case for over 70 days. The rest of Australia isn't far behind. Even in Victoria with a second wave in July; new cases have now slowed to just 2 a day. The reason for this is that the government at federal and state levels co-operated in March to form a strategy of measures along with economic support and the people co-operated with stay at home rules, social distancing, travel bans and handwashing. It isn't rocket science! It really isn't that hard to figure out that a refusal to believe the science, a ridiculous belief in so called freedom, and delusional conspiracies, at the expense of collective safety and an almost intentional negligence on the part of the leader of the country has led to the abysmal situation in which American citizens now find themselves.

    Bullshit Biden doesn't even have control of his own mouth. He is saying nothing different than what the country has been doing with one small but very important exception. Biden wants to take control away from local authorities even though they are better suited to assess the local needs. Biden would lock down the whole country if one city needs a shut down. He is a mindless fool.

  • apatriotone

    It's no longer a pandemic. It's endemic. You cannot control it. Besides therapeutics and vaccines, those are the only options. There is no proof that masks and social distancing will stop the spread.

    To make a choice which benefits your health both in the short and in the long term, you have to understand and know things related to health in depth and see it in a broader light. It is something that requires study, experience and reflection for years. Without an open mind and a filter from when money talks or truth and principles talks, one can only be of insignificant use to help people as it was intended to (by Hippocrates and other great men, who dedicated their life to curing sick people). The dynamics of illness requires a dynamic understanding of the patient, the illness and the medicine (cure). The ability to cure are not for everyone to master, even though most people can learn and develop some kind of basic skill/understanding, to manage our own health to some extend, with the proper guidance. That should be the doctors first priority. Most doctors don´t have the time or knowledge for that and when the patients walk out the door with a recipe, nobody knows how the patient manage that medicine, or if the patient even take it (the right way and doses). Today some medicine is available in supermarkets, which in my mind is totally reckless and stupid knowing that "some", push for further drugs to head that way. Vaccines are a very complex matter. Those who blindly advocate for vaccines for every one, are either plane stupid or corrupted in mind. Those who are against it in any case, maybe don´t see the bigger picture. One thing is for sure. When people make a decision out of fear, based on knowing maybe 1 to 5 % of what there is to know about vaccines, they are often making mistakes against their own health and happiness. Ask your self. If you outsource your bodies own healing qualifications to medicine, what will you be in total dependency of in the end?

    For a straightforward non-partisan semi-independent media show, odd that I haven't seen any comments regarding the World Economic Forum/Bilderburg the years old "Great Reset" global economic policies now being implemented as a response/solution to the crisis. I don't think you have to go so far as pointing to Bill Gates family history of eugenics. But, cheerleading the expansion of 'contact tracing' and technocracy is disheartening to me. Krystal and Sangar both use the term 'military industrial complex' from Ike's warning. How many have heard the second half of the speech. His primary warning was detailed ending with "... public policy itself controlled by a scientific technological elite." Interestingly the official Eisenhower archives .gov site claims his farewell address ended in under 9 minutes. The STE warning comprised the additional 6 minutes,. which didn't register with the public consciousness then, and is ignored today. Regardless of the virus statistics and tragic deaths, the real story here is being ignored.

    At least 60% of workers are in the entertainment, restaurant, and hospitality sector of the economy- they are getting killed! Trump and his privateering cronies (how many of them own appreciable amounts of stock in the companies that make remdesivir and Regeneron?) and the elites with cash on hand will now buy up millions of homes when the forbearances end and folks have to file for bankruptcy. This pandemic will have all kinds of downstream effects on the economy and on the health of people for years to come. There will NOT be a V shaped recovery even if Biden and Harris win and institute national policies to protect people from this plague. New research also shows that germinal centers in lymph nodes are destroyed by the virus- potentially those who have suffered mild disease may have compromised immunity throughout their lives to all pathogens.

  • J. Lahtinen

    The pandemic in America could be controlled quite effectively if the administration was willing to do the right things. First, a complete, nationwide lockdown for two weeks - everything non-essential shut down. Movement restrictions implemented - people only allowed to go to the grocery store, and to hospitals for necessary treatment. And a manditory mask wearing in all public spaces. To make that palatable and possible for people, you would need a rescue check of at least 2000 dollars to every American, plus a pledge to pay the rent debt of people who haven't been able to pay their rents because of coronavirus. And a compensation package to keep the small businesses that have to shut down afloat. That would be a very big spending package, but it would be a spending package spent on the main street, not Wall Street, and it would dramatically cut the spread of the disease. After that two weeks, a gradual opening of businesses depending on the number of infected could be allowed, with further rescue an stimulus checks to people if restrictions needed to be extended. Ultimately, that would end up a cheaper solution than allowing the virus to spread, because it would allow for a fast economic recovery after the restrictions. It would also, of course, save countless of lives. But what is the chance that a Trump administration would be willing to do all that? Absolutely zero. I doubt that a Biden administration would have the balls to do that either, but they would at least do the basic pandemic time virus spread prevention tactics.

    First of all I get sick of listening to politicians and news hacks and opinion pundits constantly telling the American people how they would have taken care of the Coveid problem. Not one of these people stand in Trump shoes. Nor did they have this crisis fall in their lap. So stop all the Monday morning quarterbacking armchair Psychiatry and doctoring. I agree with Meadows.... you cannot contain or control a virus. Any sane intelligent person would know that. A virus is like the cold or flu and yet every year millions of people catch colds millions of people get the flu a lot of them die. All you can do is mitigate the disease. And if China had not owned all of our medical equipment and medicines then maybe the US could have dealt with it more quickly and more proficiently. We should think of keeping all of those types of supplies made in America so that when something happens they're easily available and readily available..... that might have changed the course of it but again you cannot contain a virus and saying anything else it's dangerous and ludicrous.

    • theLanceInPants

      Let's be perfectly clear about this allusion to herd immunity: it is unethical to strive for herd immunity without vaccinations being the primary means. In turn, it IS psychotic to purposely infect as many people as possible for herd immunity by essentially foregoing any kind of mitigation efforts, taking the Mark Meadows approach and damning our health-vulnerable populations. These waves happen to us mostly due to our "YE-HA" culture and "mA rIGhT" to not wear masks, social distancing in rallies or antifa parades, lack of contact tracing, completely denying the severity or existence of covid. There's a reason why the US makes up 4% of the world's population and 25% of covid cases and growing.
