Joe Biden To Offer Regular Coronavirus Shadow-Briefings Starting Next Week

Excerpt:

This strikes me as a bad idea for the coshadow government.untry though it will probably be popular with the resistance which long ago patented the phrase “not my president” and the idea of setting up a

Joe Biden is planning a regular shadow briefing on coronavirus to start as early as Monday to show how he would handle the crisis and address what he calls the lies and failures of President Trump.

Biden gave a preview of what’s to come in a conference call with reporters Friday, where he listed a litany of false and misleading statements from Trump, who has been holding regular White House press conferences concerning coronavirus preparedness and response that have been broadcast live on all major networks.

“President Trump stop saying false things, will ya?” Biden said. “People are worried they are really frightened, when these things don’t come through. He just exacerbates their concern. Stop saying false things you think make you sound like a hero and start putting the full weight of the federal government behind finding fast, safe and effective treatments.”…

Now, he said, his house is being outfitted with equipment that would enable him to livestream events, have interactive tele-press conferences and broadcast interviews with network television.

Politically speaking, I can imagine how Biden’s team probably arrived at this. He has basically wiped out all of his primary opponents at this point which means the real contest between him and Trump should be gearing up. However, the coronavirus has bigfooted the entire political process. No more campaign stops. No more rallies. And the biggest problem is that no one is talking about anything else. The coronavirus has taken all the oxygen out of the room. So what is Joe supposed to campaign on? Obviously all he can do at this point is campaign on how he’d handle the coronavirus better than Trump.

But there are a couple of big risks in doing this. The first one has to do with his brand and the second with his gaffes. If I had to sum up Biden’s brand it’s not that he’s the most progressive (that’s Sanders) or has the most plans (that was Warren). Biden’s appeal is that he’s somewhat more moderate and, at his best, he seems like a regular guy, but a guy who can connect with a lot of groups of people.

*snip*

The second risk is probably best summed up by this video below. This is a virtual town hall which Biden held last week. As you can see, it wasn’t exactly a smooth experience. Part of the problem may have been technical, but certainly not all of it. Once Biden sets himself up as the shadow president doing daily briefings, he really is setting himself up for a comparison. Watch this clip and then tell me you’re sure Biden is going to come out looking good while doing this.

Basically Democrats want a rebuttal to the daily briefings. This is 100% political.

Yeah great idea Joe, tell us exactly what you would do. I am sure he would cure this like he cured cancer... wait he didn't cure cancer? But Obama told him to cure it years ago. Still kills people? That's obviously a right wing lie.

FLASHBACK VIDEO: Obama Went Golfing as H1N1 Swept Across USA – 60 Million Cases and 12,000 Dead!

https://twitter.com/...784459659300864

Notice no one cared how the Chosen One was golfing while people were dying? The media laughed it off.

Video of Dr. Fauci in 2009 is Unearthed – Shows a Calm and Unalarmed NIH Chief During H1N1 Epidemic that Killed Over 12 Thousand Americans


In April 2009 to April 2010 the H1N1 “Swine Flu” swept across the United States. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that that during the outbreak there were 60.8 million cases in the US, 274,000 hospitalizations, and 12,469 deaths.

In September 2009, after there were already at least 593 confirmed deaths by the H1N1 flu, a relaxed and unalarmed Dr. Anthoney Fauci from the NIH downplayed the seriousness of the outbreak and told an interviewer that people just need to “use good judgement.”

Via M. Catharine Evans at American Thinker.

Dr. Fauci: “Parents should not send their kids to school if they’re sick, if you’re sick don’t go to work … avoid places where there are people who are sick and coughing, now that’s a difficult thing to do,” he said. “…You can’t isolate yourself from the rest of the world for the whole flu season.”

That’s quite a change from the esteemed expert’s views on the current virus from China sweeping the world.

It’s peculiar that nowhere in the 2009 video does Dr. Fauci suggest that in order to alleviate the stress on hospital supplies we “force, uh, delay, if not cancel anything that’s elective, I mean any medical or surgical procedures that need to be done on an elective basis should not be done.” Dr. Fauci’s statement to NBC’s Savannah Guthrie on March 20, 2020 and his obvious slip of the tongue using the word “force” reveals just how much influence Dr. Fauci has over our daily lives. To date, hospitals, imaging centers, and outpatient departments across the country have cancelled non-emergent testing and surgical procedures.

Additionally, nowhere in the 2009 interview does Dr. Fauci specifically mention restaurants and bars as hot spots for the transmission of the H1N1 virus as he does in his recent interview with Yahoo News: “When I see crowded bars and crowded restaurants, it is a little bit unnerving,” Fauci said. “It’s clear that those are the situations that put people very much at risk.” Talk about wielding power. Take a look around the country. Local and state officials have heeded Fauci’s “unnerving” concern and ordered restaurants to close their dining areas, or adhere to a 10-person limit. In cities and small towns everywhere, the restaurant industry, which includes owners, suppliers, chefs, line cooks, waitstaff, and bartenders, has been decimated.

I wonder will Creepy Joe admit that Trump banning travel from China was in fact a a good idea and probably saved many from getting sick because of it.

Morons. Trumps approval rating has gone up so much from doing his daily briefings that the media is calling for him to stop doing them.

If Biden does these, just watch his approval ratings drop. These idiots really have no clue.

He will say we should have banned all travel back in October, when Cornpop and those roaches came and told him it was coming....

Whatever Trump does, Biden will find fault with it. And have no idea what to suggest other than Orange Man Bad. Biden and the Dems are pathetic.

What will be telling is how do the media cover it. This is nothing more than a grumpy old guy out of power complaining about the one's in power. That's a problem since it will be undermining what the POTUS is trying to do.

Pretty convenient for DementiaJoe that he can't hold 10 person rallies anymore, or Trump holding blockbuster rallies for that matter. Now if they can just keep the man sane for a few minutes at a time, and not staring off into space and acting surprised when his wife walks up, forgetting what century it is or needing his staff to help him in the middle of his briefing, he might fool enough people to vote for him this November.

Here's a more important question. What briefings is he sitting in? How is he going to understand what the States need? What sort of advice will he be getting and from whom? Is he aware of logistical levels? Does he know what has been coordinated and on what delivery schedule?

He don't know crap about any of that, in other words it will be him talking out of his butt for 10 minutes attempting to sound coherent about things he's not aware of in the least. This is going to be one hell of an ugly clown show with the audience member applauding at the appropriate times to pretend like what ever crap he spews is liquid gold.

For instance "order masks" 3M is going to deliver 35 Million per month to the US. That means they are gearing up production. If he says something stupid like "mandate they go into full production 24 hours per day" does he even know what that means? Where do they find the people to run 3 shifts of 8 hours? Where do they get the money to do that? How long would it take to train those new employees? What benefits package would they receive or would they be hired as temps? These people have no idea what they are talking about, most of them haven't run a damn car in 20 years, scant few a business that was successful. They have been professional grifters their entire lives. This will be one hell of a <censored> show. If I were DJT I would spend the first 10 minute rebutting everything this moron says the day prior. I would put him on a video screen in the briefing and cut the important parts out and show just how little this moron actually knows. He would stop this crap in 3 days.

Hey, Obama didn't have to do any of that critical thinking either. All you need is a handler, and enough czars/Soros-lackeys to run things and make decisions while you golf, and the of course a fawning media that will cover for everything else, and voila!

Los Angeles Times and Bloomberg News: Federal stockpile of N95 masks was depleted under Obama and never restocked


by Emma Colton



The national shortage of N95 respirator masks can be traced back to 2009 after the H1N1 swine flu pandemic, when the Obama administration was advised to replenish a national stockpile but did not, according to reports from Bloomberg News and the Los Angeles Times.

The Trump administration is scrambling to replenish a stockpile of protective medical gear for healthcare workers and patients as the coronavirus sweeps across the nation. N95 respirator masks are one of the most needed medical supplies amid the outbreak.

The George W. Bush administration published the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza plan in 2005, which called on the federal government to distribute medical supplies from the Strategic National Stockpile governed by the Health and Human Services Department in the event of an outbreak.

In 2009, the H1N1 outbreak hit the United States, leading to 274,304 hospitalizations, 12,469 deaths, and a depletion of N95 respirator masks.

A federally backed task force and a safety equipment organization both recommended to the Obama administration that the stockpile be replenished with the 100 million masks used after the H1N1 outbreak.

Charles Johnson, president of the International Safety Equipment Association, said that advice was never heeded.

“Our association is unaware of any major effort to restore the stockpile to cover that drawdown,” he said.

HHS Secretary Alex Azar reported last month that only 12 million N95 masks were available in the stockpile, “a tiny fraction of the 3.5 billion masks one of Azar’s deputies later testified the nation’s healthcare system would need,” the Los Angeles Times noted.

Bloomberg News reported similar findings last week, noting, "After the H1N1 influenza outbreak in 2009, which triggered a nationwide shortage of masks and caused a 2- to 3-year backlog [of] orders for the N95 variety, the stockpile distributed about three-quarters of its inventory and didn’t build back the supply.”

Correct, that's why I would challenge his assumptions on national TV in front of the audience that the media provides. This won't last long I promise you, simply rebutting his assumptions would be easy enough.

They can do as many takes as needed, or even cut multiple ones together, to make Crazy Uncle Joe look like he isn't senile.
