  2. To get this done, we do need some optimism. We do need to believe we can get it done and that our amazing research scientists are closer every day to finding promising treatments. Yes, it must be tempered by realism and careful decision-making. We also need all of our politicians to stop the blame game and work together; we need our media to take greater responsibility for its actions that too often serve more to divide than to unite us. We need to be united as a country again on a common mission. We need to remember that, against this virus, we are One America.
  3. Amid persistent criticism that his organization failed to properly oversee China's coronavirus response and worked to downplay the communist nation's responsibility for the pandemic, World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is facing growing calls for his resignation from American politicians and others around the world.
  4. A number of individuals and entities have behaved shamefully and demonstrated no capacity for leadership or usefulness in this moment.
  5. And yet even as the current emergency has proved him right in fundamental ways—about China specifically and foreign policy more generally—many respectable people in the United States are letting their disdain for the president blind them to what is really going on in the world. Far from discrediting Trump’s point of view, the COVID-19 crisis reveals what his strategy asserted: that the world is a competitive arena in which great power rivals like China seek advantage, that the state remains the irreplaceable agent of international power and effective action, that international institutions have limited capacity to transform the behavior and preferences of states.
  6. President Trump moved to get rid of the Intelligence Community inspector general, Michael Atkinson. That's the guy who changed the rules to accommodate the so-called whistleblower, to file his whistle blowings about President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, handing them over to Adam Schiff's House Intelligence Committee staff, planning it all out beforehand, in order to open the gates to impeachment. Until Atkinson came along, a whistleblower needed to have firsthand knowledge of official wrongdoing to file, not water-cooler talk from fellow malcontents in the Deep State trying to come up with some way to Get Trump. The fact that the likely whistleblower, CIA analyst Eric Ciaramella, was able to file such charges with nothing more than disliking Trump as his motive is precisely why the impeachment bid failed against the president and ended as such a farce. That wasn't all he did, either; he also stonewalled Congress when asked about his convenient little rules change. Seems he had something to hide. In any other setting, where a coup-plotter changes the rules to make things go the way he likes to make them go, or a malcontent is constantly striking at the boss, it's a perfect reason for getting rid of the creep. Trump was absolutely right to fire Atkinson for picking and choosing how to make a motivated, politically soiled malcontent appear credible by manipulating the rules to let him do it.
  7. Even as China’s role in creating the COVID-19 crisis becomes more clear, the left is trying to blame President Donald Trump for the resulting deaths. None of it makes sense, and all of it is beneath contempt at a time when the country is still at war with this invisible enemy.
  8. A New York Times report this week criticizes pro-Trump media figures who downplayed the threat of coronavirus. Fair enough. But it is worth examining how mainstream media outlets treated lawmakers who were warning about the virus and about China's potential malfeasance early on.
  9. Same here. I called earlier and got a tee time.
  10. Should of been here. We even jumped in the pool. A bit nippy I might add, but a good time with small group of friends/family.
  11. As the global public health crisis continues, it is useful to reflect that its cause is the actions and policies of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Their conduct has been reprehensible. They have suppressed whistleblowers and information, destroyed lab samples and prevented the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) from gaining access when it might have blunted a global outbreak.
  12. I'm just glad the butcher was in. I have 5 2 inch thick ribeyes going on the grill shortly with a case of beer and a bottle of bourbon. Ya'll stay safe! 78 out!
  13. It certainly is ridiculous. Look, I've stated this multiple times before and I'll say it again. I did not vote for Trump and I'm not in love with him as a person. I do like many of his policies and I do and will support him as I have every president in my lifetime. What I won't do is wake every morning and don a skirt, bitch, whine and moan like a little sissy. It's unfortunate what many of our male participants on this forum have become.
