    From Rush’s show today:

    So you Republicans, you need to be keeping a sharp eye. When I said it’s a common cold virus, I was talking about as it exists in the country. Nobody’s died from it, we have 57 cases, we do not have a pandemic. I mean, it’s not even the common cold in terms of the impact it’s had on America to date. It’s not even the common cold. I at no time said that it isn’t dangerous and that it couldn’t become something else.

    You know, I’m Mr. Realville. I’m the mayor of literal Realville. I deal with things as they are and I specifically — I’ll give you an example. Do you know that they’re already on Twitter memes, threads, and even the Drive-Bys, “This coronavirus is Trump’s Katrina.” Now, what the hell does that mean? Well, what was Katrina? They are admitting that they turned the federal response to Hurricane Katrina by the Bush administration into a great bit of damage and liability for Bush. They’re admitting they politicized that. And they did.

    Flu Kills 646,000 People Worldwide Each Year: Study

    Does anyone talk about this? No, because death from influenza is nothing new. Of course, no one wants to be just another statistic in this latest episode. The coronavirus does seem to be particularly virulent and there’s a scientific reason for that (which I don’t understand) if it is a newly manufactured virus which has escaped the lab in China. But is it really that virulent? We just don’t know. So the usual precautions should be taken.

    I’m tending to believe like Rush, however, that coronavirus is being used by the Dem enemy as another means to remove President Trump from office, and the media is following the orders of their Dem masters to play it up. How many of them would care if it turned out to be a REAL pandemic that took out thousands of Deplorables?

    Why the Greens Love the Coronavirus
    By William R. Hawkins – February 26, 2020

    There is one faction in the U.S. which hails the chaos and welcomes the economic decline: the Green movement. It holds that human activity is bad for the planet and thus anything that reduces human activity is a blessing. And this is not just the braying of a fringe group on the far Left. Its argument recently appeared in the New Republic, long the flagship of mainstream liberalism.
