Lost my father at the beginning of the pandemic. Could not visit, nada, zero. The worst thing was dealing with the funeral home after we had the body moved and cremated. Funeral home arranged for an appointment where they did the contact-less delivery of the modestly priced receptacle. My aunt pulled up, popped the trunk, and some funeral home employee put the receptacle in there and a receipt. The lack of any sort of dignity about any of it, well these are the times so I’m holding it back.
Now you report to this line, Cookie!
I'm watching Fox right now and they're still showing 67,000 deaths currently. It'll probably be years before we get the truth, whatever that may be.

It is way past time that conservatives and those who support the Constitution woke up, loudly expressing our opinions and even protesting. For too long we have sat silent while the leftists have run roughshod over us and the Constitution with their socialism, left wing judges legislating from the bench, and silencing anyone who dares to disagree etc. If the left wants to hate us then bring it on. It's time to push back against them!

The 37,000 number is what the CDC is currently reporting. These numbers have gone through the CDC's process/bureaucracy for lack of a better phrase. The 67,000 number is the simple sum of what each state is reporting. It takes two weeks for the CDC to process the numbers (death certificates) from the states, so there is a lag between what the CDC reports on a give day and the states report on the same day.
Sure, they're all correct. Take your pick.

Pompeo: 'Enormous evidence' connects coronavirus outbreak to Wuhan lab
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he has seen “enormous evidence” indicating the coronavirus pandemic originated in the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
Pompeo, who has been in his position since 2018 after serving as President Trump’s first CIA director, made the revelation on Sunday during a conversation with Martha Raddatz on ABC’s This Week, confirming there is evidence that the coronavirus came from the Wuhan lab in close proximity to many of the earliest known COVID-19 virus cases. Raddatz pressed Pompeo on whether he had a “high degree of confidence” that the coronavirus outbreak originated in a Wuhan lab.
“Martha, there's enormous evidence that that's where this began. We've said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outset, but I think the whole world can see now,” Pompeo said. “Remember, China has a history of infecting the world, and they have a history of running substandard laboratories. These are not the first times that we've had a world exposed to viruses as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.”
Pomeo added: “And so, while the intelligence community continues to do its work — they should continue to do that, and verify so that we are certain — I can tell you that there is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan.”
A senior intelligence official told the Washington Examiner on Saturday that a majority of the U.S. Intelligence Community's 17 spy agencies believe the coronavirus likely originated with an accidental lab escape from a laboratory in Wuhan. The official said that the agencies that don’t currently believe it came from the lab remain open to the theory. The positions of specific spy agencies, such as the CIA or the National Security Agency, were not immediately clear.
For weeks, speculation has swirled around the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a Biosafety Level 4 Lab in China, amid a debate over whether it originated there or in a nearby wet market, as was widely believed. The intelligence community does not believe the coronavirus was bioengineered nor that it was purposefully released from the lab.
The secretary of state said he agreed with the intelligence community assessment that the coronavirus likely was not “man-made.” Raddatz asked whether he believed the coronavirus had been released accidentally or intentionally.
“You know, I don't have anything to say about that — I think there's a lot to know,” Pompeo replied. “But I can say this. We've done our best to try and answer all of those questions. We tried to get a team in there. The World Health Organization tried to get a team in there. And they have failed. No one's been allowed to go to this lab or any of the other laboratories — there are many labs inside of China, Martha. This risk remains.”
Pompeo added that “we still don't have the virus samples we need,” and “the Chinese Communist Party continues to block access to the Western world — the world's best scientists — to figure out exactly what happened” amid a pandemic.
State Department cables in 2018 warned about biosecurity and management problems at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and the Education Department is currently investigating potentially undisclosed financial ties between the University of Texas and the Chinese lab.
The WHO concluded the COVID-19 virus first appeared in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province, and an investigative report in February found “early cases identified in Wuhan are believed to have acquired infection from a zoonotic source” in the Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market. Gao Fu, the director of China’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention, claimed that “the origin of the new coronavirus is the wildlife sold illegally in a Wuhan seafood market.”
During a Thursday press conference, Trump said, “Yes, I have,” when asked if he’d seen anything to give him a high degree of confidence that the coronavirus originated in the Wuhan lab, when but asked what gave him that high degree of confidence, he replied, “I can't tell you that. I'm not allowed to tell you that.”
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence weighed in with the U.S. Intelligence Community's official position on Thursday, noting that “the entire" bloc "has been consistently providing critical support to U.S. policymakers and those responding to the COVID-19 virus, which originated in China.” The top spy office, led by Richard Grenell, the acting head of ODNI and the current ambassador to Germany, added that “the Intelligence Community also concurs with the wide scientific consensus that the COVID-19 virus was not manmade or genetically modified.”
The statement also said the spy community had not yet reached a conclusion on whether the coronavirus originated in a wet market or through an inadvertent infection or an accidental escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology or another nearby lab, but they would "continue to rigorously examine emerging information and intelligence."
There is well-documented evidence that China tried to cover up the spread of the coronavirus, muzzle whistleblowers, intimidate doctors, mislead the WHO, and block outside health experts. At least one study indicated that if the Chinese government had acted more quickly, the coronavirus’s global spread would have been greatly reduced.
Reports show Chinese doctors knew around late December and early January that human-to-human transmission of the coronavirus was almost certainly occurring, and the Chinese government silenced medical professionals who attempted to go public. The WHO tweeted on Jan. 14 that “preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.”
The intelligence community reportedly believes the Chinese Communist Party downplayed the severity of the initial coronavirus outbreak and that China continues to mislead about the infection rate and death toll inside the country. Beijing has denied orchestrating a cover-up of its coronavirus response.
“The Chinese Communist Party had the opportunity to prevent all of the calamity that has befallen the world,” Pompeo said, adding, “This is an enormous crisis, created by the fact that the Chinese Communist Party reverted to form, reverted to the kinds of disinformation, the kinds of concealment that authoritarian regimes do.”
"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."

Something I heard Stephen Moore say that I found incredible. I think it was that more people over the age of 90 have died from the Wuhan virus than people under the age of 40. Also, more people over 100 have died of COVID than under 30.
To repeat that, the world is shutdown over a virus that has killed more Centenarians than people under 30.

This is exactly how I feel. I am trying to explain this to my wife and two daughters and am admittedly not doing a very good job because I think my anger is getting in the way.
Most of the nitwits I’ve talked to that are younger than 40 and outside of our circles are like robots. They spew the same BS ad nauseam about we gotta stop the spread and other impossibilities.
They’ll go back to work (or not) and pat themselves on the back thinking they did a great job even though their shit is now or soon to be someone else’s. A Pyrrhic victory.This message has been edited. Last edited by: PowerSurge,

U.S. officials believe China covered up the extent of the coronavirus outbreak — and how contagious the disease is — to stock up on medical supplies needed to respond to it, intelligence documents show.
Chinese leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic from the world in early January, according to a four-page Department of Homeland Security report dated May 1 and obtained by The Associated Press. The revelation comes as the Trump administration has intensified its criticism of China, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying Sunday that China was responsible for the spread of disease and must be held accountable.
The analysis states that, while downplaying the severity of the coronavirus, China increased imports and decreased exports of medical supplies. It attempted to cover up doing so by “denying there were export restrictions and obfuscating and delaying provision of its trade data,” the analysis states.
The report also says China held off informing the World Health Organization that the coronavirus “was a contagion” for much of January so it could order medical supplies from abroad — and that its imports of face masks and surgical gowns and gloves increased sharply.
Those conclusions are based on the 95% probability that China’s changes in imports and export behavior were not within normal range, according to the report.
Trump has speculated that China could have unleashed the coronavirus due to some kind of horrible “mistake.” His intelligence agencies say they are still examining a notion put forward by the president and aides that the pandemic may have resulted from an accident at a Chinese lab.

Couple of things for today since I was outside enjoying the weather and not keeping up with all of it:
There is a particular group of individuals from the late 1800's through today that literally want everyone to wear a mask: It's called the KKK and it was founded by none other than Democrats....nothing, exactly nothing has changed in that regard. Just another way to cover their identities when "protesting".
Next, the CDC: If a person has the flu and dies it is counted. If the person has the Wu Flu and dies it is counted too. Same for pneumonia. In practice, 1 person is showing up as dead 2 or 3 times. There is nobody pushing back and asking for names to scrub against the death rolls.
Finally: The check cashing Gestapo fucktards that stomp on peoples rights "in the name of safety" need to disappear. I don't care if they fuck off and die or decide on different careers, but someone needs to step up and call them on their bullshit.
No thanks, I've already got a penguin.
