RUSH: Now, there are other things still related to this that we didnt get into in the first hour. And, you know, Trumps banning travel from Europe. Democrats not happy about this, folks. They do not like losing their precious travel from their precious European Union even for a day. Some people have asked, What did you think of presidents speech last night? You didnt say. I thought he gave the right speech at the right time.
Look, I know some people get frustrated. My gosh, couldnt they do something with the sound? You could hear the president breathing. You can hear him breathing whenever he speaks! Hes got Its part of his speech pattern. Ive grown accustomed to it. Maybe some sound people could do something to limit it by turning down the compression. But (sigh) Look, he did what he had to do.
He was purposely dour because thats what the media and the Democrats are demanding. He read from the prompter. Thats what they think is presidential. Ive had a lot of people say, Thats not Trumps best format! He should just launch, he should Right. But understand what this was last night. This wasnt a Trump rally. This was a presidential address from the Oval Office.
Of course, these lamebrains on the left have this idea of what is presidential and what isnt, and reading a teleprompter which takes hardly any skill whatsoever is considered presidential. So he read the teleprompter, he stuck to the script, he was dour, he was serious. As far as these people are concerned, thats how you define presidential in their stupid, boring world.
So he did what he had to do. Politically, it was wise. I mean, folks, I cannot tell you how much the left in this country hates the idea of shutting travel from their beloved European Union. But because Trump did it, now theyre gonna have to go on record either opposing the travel ban or supporting it and if they oppose the travel ban, its gonna be lethal for them.
They may as well come out and proclaim that theyre for open borders, which we all know that they are. In any case, these shutdowns may clamp down the virus and the hysteria because I guarantee you I asked you before the break, Can anybody tell me the number of coronavirus deaths in the United States? (interruption) You looked it up, did you? You had to look it up because you didnt know off the top of your head.
The one thing missing in all of this panic-driven coronavirus news is what? The number of deaths in the United States! Why, we get stories, My God, a player in the NBA actually touched a microphone of a media person. The NBAs canceling the season! Oh, my God! Tom Hanks and his wife are in Australia filming an Elvis movie, and theyve got the coronavirus. Are we gonna have to stop going to movies?
Can it spread from the screen to the audience? Oh, my God! Is it that bad? In all of this panicked reporting, whats the one thing missing? The death toll. You dont hear about the death toll, do you? Do you know what the total is? Im not gonna tell you. Ill tell you this. About 60% of the death toll has happened in one place, and I dont mean one city. I mean in one place in one city.
Now, you would think with a panic of this kind, with this magnitude, that the central reporting figure would be the number of people dying, and yet? Well, thats not part of the reporting at all. Yet go back. The swine flu: 18,000 people dead, 60 million infected, 300,000 hospitalized in 2009-2010. You know another reason why that didnt make any big news? Its because thats when Obama was selling Obamacare!
Of course, the swine flu helped push the notion for government-run health care. So the swine flu coming along when it did in 2009-2010, the media glommed right onto it and used that to promote Obamacare. There was no way Obama was gonna be ripped or criticized for presiding over a runaway, mad period of swine flu infectious and death. No way. (interruption) You still dont know the death toll? You cant find it. Folks, youre gonna have a tough time finding it. (interruption)
How long did it take you to find the death toll, Snerdley, and where did you find it? Less than a minute, okay, but what ? (interruption) Okay. Did you go to a specific website, or did you just ? (interruption) Did you do a Google search coronavirus death toll? (interruption) And what site did it take you to? You even forgot what the website was already? All right.
Okay. Ill tell you what number he found in his site search. (interruption) Thirty-nine, did you say? Do you know that 26 of those deaths have occurred in a nursing home in Seattle, Washington state? You take the 26 deaths out of the equation from the nursing home in Washington state and how many deaths are we talking about? And yet we are react this way? Were wrecking the United States economy!
We are literally destroying the stock market. Were telling people not to go to work! Were telling people not to congregate with people. Were shutting down the freaking NBA season (which, big deal). But now Major League Baseballs getting ready to kick off. Oh, what are they gonna do about March Madness, Mr. Snerdley?
What are they gonna do about the NCAA and what are they gonna do with upcoming the first major of the PGA season? That would be the Masters. Can you imagine the Masters without the patrons? Can you imagine the Masters without the gallery? Would they do it? In fact, I would think golfers might actually like it with no fans in there, no noise, no distraction. But I could be wrong about that.
And in the midst of all this you get to turn on TV and listen to how incompetent the president is and how incapable he is at dealing with such complex situations. What are we talking about? Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes for Health has been all over television telling anybody who would listen the most important thing that happened here was Trump limiting and banning travel from China in January. Fauci is saying if that hadnt happened itd be much worse in America than it is.
Are they ignoring him? Yes. Theyre focusing on other things Fauci is saying, but theyre ignoring that. Anyway, Trump doing all of the stuff that these little Chihuahuas were ankle-biting him to do, they now either have to oppose it as unnecessary or say that travel bans were too late, which they cant do given their open borders creed.
So Trumps kind of playing it, I think, brilliantly on the political front. You might not have liked the way he sounded. You might not have liked the way he looked. But what he did and what he said in that Oval Orifice address last night has presented several dilemmas for the Democrats. He stayed on script. He was dour, which means they cant find much to smear him with because he stayed on script and he was presidential.
I dont like all these shutdowns. I think this is so overblown. But remember, this is political. Everybodys, No, Rush, its not political. Its a health issue. Yeah, I wish it were. If it were being treated as a health issue strictly, itd be one thing. But it is political. And so in that context, it was the wise thing to do. And maybe in three to four weeks itll stop the new case increases that are fueling the panic, cause its not the death toll thats fueling the panic. Its something else.
Isnt that amazing, by the way, folks? The death toll is not part of any of the reporting. Is that fascinating to you, or is that something that only fascinates me?
Cue the guy with the hockey stick graph demonstrating how this is going to ramp-up to 68,000 deaths within a week.
Thirty- nine deaths as of 12:49 pm today. Thirty of which were in Washington State, four in California.
And with the people having high fever it’ll add to global warming!
26 of the deaths in Washington State occurred at the Kirkland nursing home.
As of NOON today, 12MAR20, 38 people have died & nearly 2/3 of those in ONE nursing home in WA.
Hopefully that old bat Ruth Bader Ginsburg adds +1 to this.
And you wonder why trust in the Establishment Media by many Americans have fallen through the floor.
Rush is great when talking politics, but hes one of the last people Ill take health advice from.
How many have recovered in the U.S.?
How many have recovered from a second infection in the U.S.?
It’s a little late now but we need to close our borders and put ourselves in social isolation until the pandemic subsides.
38 fatalities out of 46 completed cases. (JHU CSSE 6:33 AM PDT 3/12)
The percentage is left to the reader as an exercise.
Have they explained how all those Kirkland nursing home patients contracted the disease?
I want to see metrics of hospitalizations and fatalities, not just numbers and percentages.
For example for both each hospitalization and fatality:
Immune Disorder (MS, HIV, etc.)
Ethnic Heritage (Asian, Caucasian, Other)
You know what I expect to see? That a large percentage of the hospitalizations and fatalities are:
Smokers (Europeans and Asians smoke like chimneys)
Immune systems compromised
That’s my hypothesis.
They have this data. Why not share? Perhaps because it will provide an answer they don’t want widely publicized?
“...this is going to ramp-up to 68,000 deaths within a week.”
No probably 680,000 deaths right here in the good old USA......no kidding, just ask the experts here non FR.
Michael Savage has been a lot more realistic about the corona virus since epidemiology is part of his formal training, and has been largely supportive of Trump’s actions. The appropriate response lies somewhere between complete indifference and absolute hysteria, but erring on the side of healthy caution.
Everyone should realize, remember, and repeat again and again... that the Democrats have already shot a hole in their own boat. Their politicization of the Corona Virus continues to ramp up, but they cannot unsay, and unvideo that massive hole in their boat’s hull. They were against and remain against travel bans. And they are trying to get legislation passed that would end the current travel bans. Add to that, Bernie and Biden still would dismantle our border, and allow hoards of untested illegal aliens to flood into our country.
Nothing they can say or do can remove the fact that if they had been in power, the Chinese Corona Virus infection and death rates in the U.S. would have exploded in February, and they now would be lying about how the Republicans are exaggerating the severity of the pandemic, which would be much, much worse than it actually is now. Never let these idiots get away with this, bring it up consistently.
46 KNOWN completed cases.
We have absolutely no idea how many people have been walking around with this and/or recovered from it as we’re testing virtually nobody.
If the death rate was really 82% the bodies would be stacked so deep in Italy you wouldn’t be able to get down the streets.
