If there is one constant in this ever-changing world of ours, it’s that it should always be considered as a given that there is absolutely NOTHING that Democrats will not seize upon, and then exploit to the greatest extent possible, if they think there is any chance that they might be able to score some cheap political points. And make no mistake, this ‘Chinese Coronavirus’ melee is no different. The Democrats have been determined in their continuing efforts to remove President Trump from office, and slamming him for inaction regarding this recent ‘crisis’ is but their latest attempt.
Take for instance ex-vice president ‘Senile Old’ Joe who, you’ll recall, is running for president. He has now chosen to criticize the president’s proposal for combatting the ‘Chinese Coronavirus’ and yet it’s his ‘own’ plan that borrows pretty heavily from the actions the Trump administration has already taken against the virus. I’m not sure if its plagiarism or senility, but it seems to me that ripping off the ideas of the man you’re seeking to defeat is pretty hilarious. But then, ‘Senile Old’ Joe rarely remembers where he is, to whom he is speaking, or for what office he is running.
Anyway, ‘Senile Old’ Joe unveiled his masterplan this past Thursday. The speech/rant, which had been billed beforehand as being of a presidential caliber, heavily criticized President Trump’s efforts to contain the virus. ‘Senile Old’ Joe said, “Our government’s ability to respond effectively has been undermined by the hollowing out of agencies and the disparagement of science.” And he went on to add that “our ability to derive a global response” was also “dramatically undercut by the damage Trump has done to our credibility and our relationships around the world.”
And as can always be expected from any sleazy Democrat, instead behaving in what was a responsible, even presidential, manner and urging unity and calm, ‘Senile Old’ Joe seized on the politics of the issue and spent a large portion of his rant hurling political attacks at the president. ‘Senile Old’ Joe, in particular, argued that President Trump’s policies and demeanor in the White House only exacerbated tensions in the public health and safety sectors. He said, “Unfortunately, this virus laid bare the severe shortcomings of the current administration.” Shortcomings?
‘Senile Old’ Joe said, “Public fears are being compounded by [a] pervasive lack of trust in this president, fueled by an adversarial relationship with the truth.” No, actually what has “compounded” public fears has been the constant drumbeat by Democrats, like ‘Senile Old’ Joe, and their many allies in the business of promoting what is truly nothing more than ‘fake news.’ They have done nothing but to declare ad nauseam about how the sky is falling and how we’re all gonna die and it’s all the fault of President Trump. And how is it that the American people can’t see that?
And it was also during his little rant on Thursday that ‘Senile Old’ Joe said, “Banning all travel from Europe or any other part of the world may slow it, but as we’ve seen, it will not stop it.” And he went on to say, “And travel restrictions based on favoritism and politics rather than risk will be counter-productive.” Right, and as we all know, if there is one thing that Democrats absolutely excel at, it’s being counter-productive, regardless of the issue. Again we have a Democrat putting into very stark terms why it is nothing short of insane to ever, EVER, vote for any Democrat!
Contrary to President Trump, ‘Senile Old’ Joe seemed to go out of his way to slam the ban on travel from Europe, even though the nation’s leading health experts have said “Europe is the new China” in terms of the spread of the coronavirus. And yet that seems to matter very little, if at all, to ‘Senile Old’ Joe! If we go strictly by his plan it would seem that ‘Senile Old’ Joe is far more interested in trying to make matters worse, possible much worse, than he is interested in actually doing all that can be done to reduce the number of cases of the coronavirus in this country.
So despite all of his idiotic rhetoric, it was many of the proposals suggested by ‘Senile Old’ Joe for combatting the virus that are, in fact, already central to the Trump administration’s efforts. For instance, ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s plan calls for “no efforts” to be spared in getting private laboratories and universities to help test for the virus. The suggestion mirrors a move that the Trump administration took in February in ordering the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to allow hundreds of academic hospitals and private laboratories to start testing for the coronavirus.
‘Senile Old’ Joe’s plan also argues in favor of a federal relief effort for small businesses negatively impacted by the ‘pandemic.’ The idea is identical to one the president proposed on Wednesday. President Trump’s version, which has been presented to Congress in the form of a $50 billion appropriation for low-interest loans to small businesses, includes detailed requirements for cost, eligibility, and implementation. ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s proposal is vague in terms of cost, only stating he would push for the creation of a small-business loan program upon taking office.
And there are a number of other key portions of ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s plan that sounded eerily similar to what the Trump administration is either doing, has already done or has planned. For instance, ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s plan calls for revising existing laws and regulations to ensure insurance companies waive co-pays and deductibles for coronavirus testing and “any eventual vaccine.” Although ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s plan has an elaborate mechanism for ensuring such payments are waived, it remains unclear if such an extensive structural change, at this point, would actually even be needed.
The question is especially uncertain after President Trump announced on Wednesday that he had convinced insurance providers to commit to waiving the costs for coronavirus. President Trump has also secured other important concessions, including the expansion of coverage for treatment across all insurance plans. While this means that an eventual vaccine for the virus would not necessarily be free, portions of the cost would likely be covered. Likewise, Joe’s pledge to “accelerate” the development of a vaccine is something the Trump administration has already undertaken.
It was back in January that officials from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced that they were fast-tracking the development of a coronavirus vaccine in anticipation of potential outbreak. At the time, health officials were hoping that a streamlined process would ensure the vaccine was ready for clinical trials by at least May. ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s proposal does not elaborate on how it would expedite the process any further, apart from stating the NIH “must be responsible for the clinical trial networks and work closely with the FDA on trial approvals.”
Also part of ‘Senile Old’ Joe’s plan is a provision that would revamp welfare-dependent legal immigration to the U.S. that President Trump has sought to end but which federal courts have temporarily blocked. The provision would ensure that foreign welfare-dependents are allowed to permanently resettle in the U.S. with green cards despite their financial burden on American taxpayers amid the public health crisis. By all means, let’s fill the country with all manner of welfare parasites, terrorists, and carriers of the coronavirus. Great plan! Thanks, but no thanks!
I think even most Democrats realize that ‘Senile Old’ Joe is a fraud. Just as they know he’s senile. So how do they plan to win the election? Easy, just prop up ‘Senile Old’ Joe long enough for him to choose Hitlery as his running mate (which she likely has been briefed on and has accepted). Then, they will cheat in every conceivable way to scam the American people come Election Day. Once the old geezer is elected, the “concerned” people around him will have him removed from office or he will simply choose to resign, knowing full-well of the deceit used to get Hitlery in power.
Why else would their party continue to stand behind a candidate that is so incredibly unfit for office, ANY office! ‘Senile Old’ Joe is simply taking one for the team. And I’m telling you all right now that if every last one of us who love this country don’t go vote, and bring along others to vote, I have no doubt that Hitlery will be our next president (*) if only by default. She would then join Gerald Ford as being only the second president in our history who was never actually elected to the office of President. Not that she’d care, at least she would finally be president (*).
I think it’s very safe to say that you’d be hard pressed to find any Democrat, including ‘Senile Old’ Joe, who has a desire to see this ‘Chinese Coronavirus’ come to an end anytime soon. If for no other reason than because the Democrats now see it as the best opportunity to date to get President Trump out of office. And how truly pathetic is that? But we shouldn’t really be surprised by such behavior. After all, we’ve all seen it before, perhaps not to this extent, but this is just what Democrats, assisted by those in the ‘fake news’, do. And there are people who will buy into it.
