Obsessed with and distracted by impeachment and the Russians, democrats almost missed the pandemic completely



Mitch McConnell recently made the remark that impeachment was a distraction for Donald Trump:

“I think it diverted the attention of the government, because everything every day was all about impeachment,″ the Senate majority leader said Tuesday.

Almost immediately Pelosi piled on:

McConnell got it wrong. Impeachment was a distraction- but for democrats. They were so hyper-focused on impeachment and obsessing on impeachment and the Russians that the pandemic blew right past them.

Nancy Pelosi

Jan. 30

Then the day Trump announces the travel ban

Then- nothing- until Feb 25

Adam Schiff

Schiff was totally preoccupied with one thing

The day Trump announced the travel ban. Schiff’s big thing? The trial.

Feb 23

Then finally, on Feb 25 Schiff runs to the front of the parade

And he still doesn’t get it. Then

He thought Corona was a beer until Feb. 25. His CDC assertion is false, but lying is what Schiff does better than anything else. adam still doesn’t know schiff.

Chuck Schumer

Up to Jan. 29: Impeachment. impeachment, impeachment

Jan. 31 Trump announces a travel ban. Schumer’s concern? John Bolton

Finally on Feb. 7. But only for a cup of coffee. Then back to bashing Trump.

Feb. 9. Let’s party!

Feb. 24- that darned Trump!

Feb. 24 Schumer hunts for the front of his parade

And we can’t go on without the Honorable Mentions:

And all during this time democrats were offering all sorts of dandy advice:

They weren’t alone. Here’s a nice recap of how the media downplayed the crisis

Clearly, a whole lot was going on while democrats were bitching about Russia and impeachment. Such was their obsession that they were astonishingly distracted from the pandemic at hand and did nothing other than obstruct Donald Trump’s efforts to work to keep this country safe.

Naturally, to cover their asses and distract from the truth, Schiff wants a new commission with subpoena power.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff proposed a bipartisan commission with subpoena power to investigate the Trump administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

“The commission will examine U.S. government preparedness in advance of this pandemic, the Federal government’s response to it, and provide recommendations to improve our ability to respond to and recover from future outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics,” Schiff said in a statement on Friday.

As if we don’t know where this would go. Mark my words- it will be next hoax. There will be all sorts of hearings and accusations will thrown around and it will go on at the least until the election and then beyond if Trump is reelected. democrats are desperate to smear Trump with their own failures and distract from the truth. The left wing media, reeking of malpractice will happily join in. In the end, Trump will be exonerated but at a great cost- it will take the nation’s focus off the crisis and its remedy.

Not that democrats give a damn. The left wing media won’t give a damn either. This is how they will “pull together” for the sake of the country. democrats have contributed absolutely nothing to help the country. all they offered is criticism and ad hominem. They have become China’s echo chamber.

Schiff, like Pelosi and Schumer, is a fecal stain on the US government.  Schiff stains, if you will.

Must you see that everyone loses their jobs and businesses have you control freaks no mercy?

Sure he does, he’s a commie. And then, if Trump shut down the entire nation, Comrade Greggie would shout “Dictator!!! Dictator!!!”

On top of that, how many times has Comrade Greggie come on this site and pi$$ and moan about how much we spend on our military. Now that our military is on the front lines of the Chi-Com virus, building hospitals, providing medical care, I doubt he will ever admit he was wrong.

The governor of Utah has confiscated hydroxychologuine so that doctors cannot write scripts for the drug. If someone has the virus, but in a mild form, why not let doctors treat homebound patients and not inject state government into the mix. Governors (at least most of them) are not doctors and have never played one on TV.

Your First Amendment rights are dissipating right before your eyes, Kitt. Comrade Greggie must be cheering.

@retire05: You know if Greg isnt in full lockdown he should call his governor and cry to them, if he isnt from one of the states that isnt he should keep his nose on his own face. He doesnt have the data or information to make decisions for other states. Maybe the governor is really smart and leaving it to the mayors who are at ground zero.

@kitt, #52:

You know if Greg isnt in full lockdown he should call his governor and cry to them, if he isnt from one of the states that isnt he should keep his nose on his own face.

The states that are not observing the social distancing protocol could become the new points of origin for COVID-19 spread after the states which have already done so manage to flatten their curves. I should have called the governor of Indiana to complain that the governor of Florida was failing to close the beaches during spring break?

Florida’s slowness to respond appropriately didn’t affect only Florida. The nation has a centralized federal government for a reason. We’re a single nation. In a time of a serious national emergency, we should behave like one.

@Greg: Well, when you are as successful as he has been, then you can talk. Until then greggie, it is just sour grapes!


Florida’s slowness to respond appropriately didn’t affect only Florida

And New Yorkers fleeing to Florida didn’t help Florida, now did it?

The nation has a centralized federal government for a reason. We’re a single nation. In a time of a serious national emergency, we should behave like one.

You really are Constitutionally illiterate, aren’t you? The “centralized” federal government is only to do those things that states cannot do for themselves. We are a Federalist form of government and states have rights to make decisions on certain things for themselves. The Federal government is responsible for defending our borders (doing a piss poor job until recently), building roads and providing a postal system.

And remember how you gritched about all the money we spend on a national military? Whatcha got to say for yourself now, Comrade Greggie, with our military building hospitals and providing medical care for states that elected incompetent governors like New York?

@Greg: Actually greggie, I guess you must like never being right. Did you know that some counties have no cases? So you want Trump to enforce martial law? Likely yes to the last question. As others have said, the geography and population of every state is different. It is the states responsibility to develop their own criteria to minimize the spread of covid-19. If you knew anything about leadership, you would understand that the best model is to not dictate from the top, but the ultimate goals are stated and those in the best position to know how to achieve those goals are tasked to do so.


If you knew anything about leadership,

The only thing Comrade Greggie knows about leadership is what he has read in the Communist Manifesto.

@Greg: Keep your nose on your own face, Take note and dont visit or vacation there. You dont know how those citizens are behaving not at all, example North Dakota has total 207 cases in only 13 counties most of those with 1 or 2 cases they just are not metro. They have their own health dept to keep both the CDC and their governor advised. No filthty dirty germy giant mass transit systems.

COVID-19 statistics, by country, updated daily. Here, if you scroll down the page, the US totals are broken down by state. They only provide the numbers. You can draw your own conclusions.


My state has 100 counties with NO Chi-Com virus cases. Approx 7,000 cases out of 29,000,000 people. Our first case was February 13th, almost two months ago.

Not every state is New York or run as badly as New York is.

@Greg: See greggie, you are drawing your own conclusions. We are all going to get the covin-19 virus like we all get the flu. There is no strategy that will prevent that until there is a vaccine produced. The current and only strategy is to keep the numbers as low as possible so that the current health care people can handle the critical patients. Pelosi encouraging everyone to attend the Chinese New Year celebrations and the New Your head of the health department telling people to go out and party are reaping what they sowed. The conclusions you are drawing are flawed as normal for you.

Look around at who is trying to take advantage of this crisis. Pelosi uses it as an opportunity to hold the nation hostage to liberal spending dreams, wasting billions. Soros and the Democrats try to exploit it to erode election security so they can gain more power. Democrats want the crisis to last as long as possible with as much death and economic pain as possible so they can exploit it for political power. China is trying to hoard PPE and equipment so they can regain health while the rest of the world suffers and the economy outside of China collapses. Russia and Saudi Arabia sought to destroy our energy industry.

All anti-American birds of a feather.


Comrade Greggie said:

Apparently it isn’t obvious enough yet for eight state governors. The mainstream media is telling the truth.

Of course, he gets his information from the most left wing publication in the U.S., the Washington Compost, which reported:

“Their magical thinking endangers the nation. It gives people license to minimize the threat — a threat the White House says could kill up to 240,000 people even with effective social distancing. It allows state-to-state gaps in the firewall that will likely encourage a raging disease to erupt in a series of rolling blazes across the country. As many states get tough, even deploying the police to encourage people to stay indoors, their odds of impeding the pandemic’s path of destruction are undercut by their neighbors’ selfishness.”

Never mind that those (R) governors had already shut down the schools and all non-essential businesses and had advised against any gatherings of more than 10 people. The leftwing media had to pounce on them. “OMG, the R governors are going to cause us all to die” shouts the DNC media.

Some common sense on this:

Meanwhile, Dep is right; the Dems are not letting this crisis go to waste. Why does the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for Humanities need doubt digit millions of $$? Why did the Kennedy Center need $25M only to lay off almost all of its employees? Why did Congress critters need a huge increase in their pay and expense accounts? The excuse was so they (the Congress critters) can come into the 21st century electronically. WTF? Do they really think we buy into that excuse?

Even with “shelter in place” edicts, we still have a First Amendment and the local, state and federal government CANNOT place us all under house arrest. One idiot reporter at yesterday’s presser asked Trump why he had not shut down grocery stores. I guess a low I.Q. is required to be a “journalist” in today’s DNC media.

But the DNC media will never give up its “if it bleeds, it leads” form of shouting its Chicken Little memes because it has “doom and gloom” purveyors like Comrade Greggie.

@retire05: The Dems can only be consistent when they attack Trump and plot to destroy the country.

@retire05: The end of this crisis without a half million dead and the economy beginning to come back before the election has the Democrats scared shitless. Once they finally shifted from calling Trump a dictator for preparing for virus to not doing enough to vigorously attack the epidemic everyone knew was coming, they did all they could to spread fear and panic light a wildfire. Then this is over, they will deny they ever yelled fire in the theater… or warned everyone what a great movie they were missing.

@Deplorable Me: The difficulty for them is that their acts were recorded and will appear in every Republican’s election ad.

The end of this crisis without a half million dead and the economy beginning to come back before the election has the Democrats scared shitless.

Now I know where all the toilet paper is being used!


@Jann Kessler: Well, hell, Jann. Why don’t YOU straighten us out?

@Deplorable Me: That was another one of Gary Miller’s sock puppets…

@Curt: Oh… I didn’t recognize him without the complimentary accusations of copyright infringement.

Have we tied to Ron/AJ to being a sockpuppet of greg, yet? It’s pretty obvious…
