    President Trump Travels to India to visit Prime Minister Modi. This will make the left’s head explode even more. India is the natural bulwark against China and we should be strong allies. I’ve been screaming about this for almost 15 years and finally!

      The Internet is a bad thing. Cell phones have destroyed society and face to face conversation.

      However, if used correctly then the Internet is a perfect way to keep in contact, and enjoy life with another person who is physically hundreds, or even thousands of miles away.

      Currently I am having supper with someone far away. We ordered food delivery from the same chain of restaurant. Eating it together, but separate.

      Life is good…..

      PM Peter Pellegrini (Smer) was hospitalised in Bratislava on the evening of February 22.

      He had an acute upper respiratory tract infection accompanied with high temperatures.

      “Due to his health condition, he has temporarily cancelled his programme,” the press department of the Government’s Office informed, as quoted by the Sme daily.

      Pellegrini later published a picture from hospital on Facebook, saying he had been suffering from some health problems for some time already.

      The hospital where Pellegrini is staying did not want to comment on his condition, Sme wrote. It is not clear yet how long he will stay there.

      jut got an txt from a ID doc who i play golf with. i had a drink with him yesterday at the CC and asked him if it is true that corona virus is more virulent in asians. he didn’t know.

      apparently, asians have more ACE2 cells in their lungs than caucasians. this corona virus loves to bind to ACE2. BUT, this has yet to be properly quantified/peer reviewed/ etc sez he

      might be sumthin?

      It is known that Asians have more ACE2 cells in their lungs. It is NOT known if that makes them more susceptible to this virus. That ACE2 fact is one of the reasons people thought it was an engineered/targeted virus.

      Also, I forget where I saw this – some blurb that said China was making it illegal to consume ‘exotic’ animals. I’m not sure what that means, one guy’s exotic is another guy’s venison.

      At any rate, it supports the idea that this got out via a ‘wet market’. It would be – I would think – very easy for someone on the janitorial staff to take some bats no longer needed, due for disposal, and instead of disposing of them in the incinerator, walk them down the street and make a few extra yuan.

      Hoo boy howdy. I don’t think that ‘mandate from heaven’ thing is working out too well.

      Missive from China

      . My mother-in-law has told us that the “death stench” has permeated her city the past week or so and getting worse daily. She cannot even open her windows. Why? No one is going to work – and no one is taking care of the livestock. No shipments of grain are coming in for the animals — and throughout the land the animals are starving in the pastures. The bodies by the hundreds of thousands are just laying in the sun and rotting. All this while the industrialized part of China is beginning to have severe food shortages.

      Now comes the good part. Something is being shared among the 1% elite Chinese population. Written by a buddhist monk in the early 20th century.

      “The year 2020 – The year all of China will weep. The omens will be so bad that the New Year will not be celebrated. Then the plague will come. It will come with a fury – the tigers and the wolves will hide in the mountains. The plague will encompass all the land – and will eventually spread to the whole world. Very soon – rice will become so expensive that no one can eat. Then the rivers will sink all the boats. People in that year will only be able to harvest rice in the very early spring. There will be no harvest of late season rice, beans, wheat, and oats because vast clouds of locusts will lay waste to the entire countryside. I, Gentleman Zigong, assure you Chinese in 2020 that the locusts will fall from the skies and the destruction will be complete. Smoke and fire will fill the fields – but nothing will be able to stop the swarms. Once the locusts have destroyed the land and the smoke is still coming from the ground, the rivers will flood the countryside. I, Gentleman Zigong, will tell you Chinese in 2020 how to survive. Remain very close to your families and your neighbors. The best is to have stored up plenty of gold and food to live and share freely with those you love. Tolerate no thieves among the people. Be uniters and not dividers. If you can do all these things, you will survive.”

      The locusts have actually arrived

      Vast clouds of locusts made it to Xinjiang (the furthest west Chinese province) last week. The videos are amazing. The Mandarin news is showing the government deployment of these gigantic fire throwers that lay waste to not only the locusts but all the land in the path of the fire. Huge bursts of fire blow out from them and they truly look like something that would be appropriate to accompany the Four Horsemen. Today we learned that the locusts have now arrived very close to the western border of Gansu province. Gansu is part of the ancient Chinese homeland and is a huge producer of wheat and rice. If this swarm gets started up, it will be a huge blow to China and their psyche. The CCP has now ordered that every live chicken in China is to be immediately dispatched to the western border, where they will be released to eat the locusts. To everyone who thinks this is not a huge problem — think about the decision being made. Take away eggs and meat for the people who are already angry — to stop the locusts. The CCP must have data that this locust swarm is going to become a disaster unless stopped immediately, no matter what the cost.

      And if THAT doesn’t remind you of something – when Mao thought the birds were eating the corn, so ordered them all slaughtered. The birds were eating the insects. No birds, lots of bugs, no corn.

      The author of this piece is an M.D. in the U.S. And now it begins

      And as a physician, the first instances of medication shortages are now happening in earnest. A memo from the hospital’s pharmacy committee arrived yesterday. It specifically named the following drugs – IV antibiotics such as gentamicin, tobramycin and streptomycin – IV drips from the ICU dobutamine, dopamine, and norepinephrine – and the following pill medications – diltiazem, verapamil, amlodipine, losartan, valsartan and irbesartan. Also mentioned were all of the usual narcotic opioids used for pain – morphine, dilaudid, hydrocodone and fentanyl among others. The memo stated that while there was stock in the hospital on all of these at this moment — the intermediate suppliers had sent warnings that supplies were quickly diminishing — and that further supplies from the manufacturer were not going to be reliable into the foreseeable future. Therefore, we were strongly urged to immediately begin making sure that every prescription was appropriate — and to replace it with something else if possible.

      And if THIS isn’t out of left field

      I have now had a patient show up this week in full blown opiate withdrawal. That is very rare in my practice. Why did this happen? His drug of choice — heroin — was not available at any price from his usual dealer. I have now confirmed with local law enforcement that the street price of opiates and meth have substantially increased in just the past week or two. I have spoken with many colleagues in cities across the country this week. In some places, nothing has changed — in others there has been a noticeable increase in opiate withdrawal. And everywhere I called, colleagues have noted a marked decrease in opiate overdoses. All this is anecdotal, but very consistent. If this holds up, it appears our illicit opiate and meth supply is being affected as well. NOT COCAINE. China for the past 10 years or so has been producing all the precursors of illicit opioids and meth. These are then shipped to Mexico where the bathtub chemistry is done on a huge scale – and the final product is then shipped to American cities. What is this China supply problem going to do to our addicts here in the USA? What will happen to Mexico if the drug cartels begin to have problems with cash flow?

      @ eaglesoars:

      Miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPGe or MPGge) is a measure of the average distance traveled per unit of energy consumed. MPGe is used by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to compare energy consumption of alternative fuel vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles and other advanced technology vehicles with the energy consumption[1] of conventional internal combustion vehicles rated in miles per US gallon.

      The MPGe metric was introduced in November 2010 by EPA in the Monroney sticker of the Nissan Leaf electric car and the Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid. The ratings are based on EPA’s formula, in which 33.7 kilowatt-hours (121 megajoules) of electricity is equivalent to one (US) gallon of gasoline,[8] and the energy consumption of each vehicle during EPA’s five standard drive cycle tests simulating varying driving conditions.[9][10] All new cars and light-duty trucks sold in the U.S. are required to have this label showing the EPA’s estimate of fuel economy of the vehicle.

      Iran’s health minister has the virus. Don’t know where he picked it up from, but the number of people he encounters on a daily basis has to be significant. And the gov’t refuses to close Qom, a ‘tourist’ city.

      Interesting article.

      This virus is probably not containable. It will become a seasonal, endemic event, like flu.

      The emerging consensus among epidemiologists is that the most likely outcome of this outbreak is a new seasonal disease—a fifth “endemic” coronavirus. With the other four, people are not known to develop long-lasting immunity. If this one follows suit, and if the disease continues to be as severe as it is now, “cold and flu season” could become “cold and flu and COVID-19 season.”

Trump announces that we’ll be happy to take them here in the U.S. (met with vicious opposition by Democrats since Cubans do NOT as a rule vote Democrat, which exposes hypocrisy of Democrat open border statements).

      Of course, since most Cubans live in pretty much basic poverty, they can’t leave without makeshift boat, which is dangerous so Cuba says “HA – we got ’em now. We said they can leave….but they haven’t the means.”

      This is insane

      Key California reservoir to be drained due to earthquake risk

      Camacho also said that draining the reservoir starting in seven months is likely to kill wildlife downstream in Coyote Creek, including endangered steel head trout, amphibians and reptiles. Coyote Creek flows from the dam through downtown San Jose to San Francisco Bay.

      Complicating the issue, California may be heading into a new drought. On Monday, amid a dry winter, Anderson Reservoir was just 29% full. Nevertheless, the 26,133 acre feet of water stored there is an important part of the South Bay’s water supply — holding enough water for the annual needs of at least 130,000 people, and what the district considers an emergency supply.

      https://www.bakersfield.com/ap/national/key-california-reservoir-to-be-drained-due-to-earthquake-risk/article_24654552-0272-5057-80bf-033b1d3f7099.html

      There’s more, but seriously, can’t they just do it a bit at a time? They’ve known about this for 10 yrs and now they want to kill everything? I can think of a few other alternatives to this all-or-nothing chicken-with-head-cut-off approach

      I think Rush has been a moron on the coronavirus thing, won’t bother you w/the details. But he’s right about one thing – whatever happens, it will be used against Trump

      Lawmakers in both parties on Tuesday expressed growing alarm that the threat of coronavirus in the United States is serious, and that the Trump administration is not doing enough to fight it.

      Two Cabinet members at separate hearings were grilled over what lawmakers described as an insufficient response so far, while Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) said the White House’s budget request to handle the disease was lackluster.

      “It seems to me at the outset that this request for the money, the supplemental, is lowballing it, possibly, and you can’t afford to do that,” Shelby told Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar during a hearing on the agency’s budget request.

      Xi knows that 95% of businessmen are corrupt so that just makes his task of reducing overt corruption so much easier.

      No long expensive research and southing needed. Just pick up a few random businessmen and make an example of them with a bullet in the head. Their families even get the bill for the cost of the bullet . Seriously!

      If Xi accidentally rounds up one of the innocent 5% then it’s just too bad for them and it’s their personal privilege to suffer for the Chinese State.

Apparently it was supposed to be a hospital but the army officers in charge of building it were farming it out as condos. They got caught and dealt with.

      Thing with China is that it is basically a whimsical government. There are so many rules and regulations, everyone is in violation of something and the only way to make a decent living is to be corrupt. So the government, at its whim, can swoop down on one and take them out if they offend the government. That, and in China, life is cheap.

      It started with his recovery act and the various controls placed on production. Wickard vs. Filburn — the wheat case. In which the Supreme Court determined that a farmer in Ohio, raising wheat to feed his own chickens, was engaged in interstate commerce because, since he was using his own wheat, he was affecting interstate commerce because if he hadn’t raised it, he would have been buying wheat and that wheat could have come from another state.

      … and this is how the federal government got its grubby mitts on every aspect of our lives. Because, by that definition, there is nothing that is not interstate commerce.

      This may interest you. A pediatrician in Japan, looking at the stats of the 1918 flu, suggests the use of aspirin may have enhanced the virulence of the illness

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      This is common thinking for the Chinese. They have extremely poor mental and spiritual hygiene as a culture. Think of what they are doing via the Yangtze river?

      C.D.C. Confirms First Possible Community Transmission of Coronavirus in U.S.

      A person in California who was not exposed to anyone with the coronavirus and had not traveled to countries in which the virus is circulating has tested positive for the new coronavirus, representing what may be the first case of community spread here in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Wednesday.

      “At this point, the patient’s exposure is unknown,” a C.D.C. statement said. “The case was detected through the U.S. public health system and picked up by astute clinicians.”

      well, unless there is animal-to-human transmission and there’s an animal around here somewhere, that statement is obviously false

      @ Aussie Infidel:
      From what I was told the Chinese are big on examples. One point that was indicated to me was that Chengdu is the only city currently in China that has a massive statue of Mao still standing. Chengdu was the last city to be conquered by Mao’s revolution and they are reminded of it to this day. Second example. Was driving past this one sky scraper that was totally blacked out at night. Apparently it was supposed to be a hospital but the army officers in charge of building it were farming it out as condos. They got caught and dealt with. Building is still empty as an “example” of trying to get away with it.

      Actually the PLA’s hospital in Hong Kong , right alongside the old British Services Sports club remains EMPTY and has been so since the end of the 1990s.. I stay at the Sports Club when I’m transmitting HK and I have a ‘nosey’ to see if anyone has ever moved in!

      Actually according to my ‘tame Chinese mate’ with excellent access to what’s actually going on in China.

      Xi knows that 95% of businessmen are corrupt so that just makes his task of reducing overt corruption so much easier.

      Thing with China is that it is basically a whimsical government. There are so many rules and regulations, everyone is in violation of something and the only way to make a decent living is to be corrupt. So the government, at its whim, can swoop down on one and take them out if they offend the government. That, and in China, life is cheap.

      This attitude by Chinese ‘mandarines’ towards the Chinese people has been ingrained for 2500 years over many Empires. The equanimity of the Chinese people to just get on with life under the authoritarian heel of the Chinese State astounds me. Other than the odd insurrection , usually when an Empire is in terminal decline, masks the acceptance by the Chinese people of their ‘lot’.

      Amazing.

      Probably a mixture of Chinese nationalism, racism, cultural isolation, ethnic (Han) supremacy, and ingrained authoritarianism keeps the Chinese people compliant and quiet.
