Paul's Passing Thoughts

Troubling Signs for Democrats Concerning Coronavirus

Posted in Uncategorized by Paul M. Dohse Sr. on March 16, 2020

ppt-jpeg4As I wrote yesterday, Trump impeachment 3.0, the Coronavirus “crises,” is going to end up being a disaster for Democrats at the polls in November. Most Democrats have to admit that their party isn’t going to give Trump any credit for doing anything right, which is unrealistic in and of itself, but allowing this virus to be blown out of proportion has had a profound effect on American lives and will continue to do so.

It is indeed a good idea to error on the side of caution with this virus, but the positive results will be credited to Trump, especially when compared to how the Democrats reacted to the Swine Flu in 2009. They played down the threat resulting in 16,000 American deaths while Joe Biden was rebuked by the Obama administration for suggesting travel restrictions. Barak Obama didn’t have to worry about any fatality rate connected to his response; he knew the media had his back.

Moreover, the virus crisis is going to highlight Trump’s accomplishments. Where would we be with this pandemic if Trump would have backed down on open borders advocated by the Democrats? While the economy is Trump’s greatest ally for the 2020 elections, hopes that the virus will destroy the economy may also backfire. Democrats also own businesses and depend on Wall Street for their retirement, but if this crisis blows over quickly, Democrat business owners and those who lost their jobs are going to be much slower to forget, especially if they think TDS had anything to do with it.

TDS is ok with many people, until the overplaying of TDS prevents your family from experiencing a once in a lifetime experience. Case in point regarding my neck of the woods: Dayton, Ohio; the Dayton Flyers being rated 3rd in the nation and having a shot at the NCAA national title will probably be something that will not happen again for a very long time, if ever. If the lost opportunity is chalked up to excessive TDS, Democrats are not going to forget it at the polls. TDS is great for political theater until it hits close to where people live.

Our local news did a report from UD arena tonight (Where opening games for the NCAA tournament were to be played) and thought they were dissing Trump by contrasting the vacant arena with news that the final touches were being applied to a Coronavirus drive-thru testing center in the UD arena parking lot. My first thought was, “Wow, that’s going to be a reality already?” Only a week ago, experts were saying that this country was not set up for anything like that at all.

However, locally, the most interesting sign arrived via the cancelling of First Fridays in Xenia, Ohio. This is a huge citywide event that takes place on the first Friday of May, June, and July. But, they are only cancelling May. Why? Obviously, they think the Coronavirus scare is going to be over by June. It is also being reported that more than half of those infected to date have recovered. It was also reported today that a vaccine for Corona is in testing stage.

Last, but certainly not least, this crisis highlights what Trump has been saying about China and globalism from the beginning of his candidacy, not to mention the outsourcing of critical medical supplies to China happened way before his watch. Who outsources 96% of their antibiotics to a sworn enemy? Just who in the hell has been running this country until Trump came along?

All of this adds up to Trump having way too much ammunition against the Democrats. In fact, I am going out on a limb here, but I predict they will avoid the presidential debates to avoid a landslide and perhaps hold on to the House. There is one exception: if Biden picks Hillary Clinton as his running mate, she is way too delusional to accept the fact that this thing is beyond over.

And we can’t forget about a major theme we have seen among Trump’s following: the invoking of God’s help which seems conspicuously missing among Democrat ranks. I think the gravity of the job has caused Trump to welcome this, and I think it is a huuuuge factor…pun intended.

    Do you know how I know that our bureaucratic public health officials and elected officials are totally politicized? The example of how they have dealt with this situation verses flu epidemics but even more importantly their PC views did not include Public health when millions and millions of illegals have been crossing our border for 25 years and living off the grid. we have had absolutely no clue what has been brought into this country. instead the same politicized bureaucrats and elected officials were telling us how racist and xenophobic we are.

    You might find this interesting. Of course you know that site despises Trump so any chance they get they try to send that message without being too obvious because she constantly states she isn’t political and tries to keep politics out of the comments but she certainly allows one side to say whatever they want. She only intervenes when the other side pushes back. Lol.
