70,000+ Americans die due to drug overdoses each year. With our southern and northern border shutdown for the foreseeable future, our President is going to use the full force of our Navy to stop drugs from getting into our country.

I had the privilege to serve onboard the USS John Hancock (DD-981) during my time in the Navy. We did a two month tour of the Caribbean Ocean. We were there to stop boats that were trying to smuggle drugs into our country.

I will never forget the night I was at the helm during my watch as a Boatswains Mate. We had a suspicious boat refusing to stop in order for us to inspect it. Our Captain told them on the radio that he would fire one warning shot. He did just that. He than said they had 30 seconds before we blew them out of the water.

They stopped immediately and allowed us to inspect their boat.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that the administration was launching an all out assault on Mexican drug cartels using the U.S. Military.

“As governments and nations focus on the Coronavirus, there is a growing threat that cartels, criminals, terrorists, and other malign actors will try to exploit the situation for their own gain and we must not let that happen,” Trump said. “We will never let that happen. Today the United States is launching enhanced counter narcotics operations in the western hemisphere to protect the American people from the deadly scourge of illegal narcotics.”

“We must not let the drug cartels exploit the pandemic to threaten American lives,” Trump continued. “In cooperation with the 22 partner nations, the U.S. Southern Command will increase surveillance, disruption, and seizures of drug shipments, and provide additional support for eradication efforts that are going on right now at a record pace.”

“We are deploying additional Navy destroyers, combat ships, aircraft and helicopters, Coast Guard cutters and Air Force surveillance aircraft, doubling the capabilities in the region,” Trump continued. “Very importantly, our forces are fully equipped with personnel protective equipment, and we have taken additional safety measures to ensure that our troops remain healthy.”

The news gets even better when it comes to our southern border!

From the article linked above:

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) confirmed that underage minors who unlawfully enter the United States without any parents or guardians are subject to immediate deportation, the latest action in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Trump administration, under orders from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), earlier in March declared that the northern and southern borders would be sealed off to all non-essential traffic as a way to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While nearly all illegal aliens would be immediately repatriated under the order, CBP originally made an exception for unaccompanied minors.

The administration first deemed that unaccompanied alien children, or UAC, apprehended at the border would be transferred to the Office of Refugee Resettlement. However, the agency is now clarifying that, in some circumstances, they can be subject to the administration’s order.

“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” read a CBP statement obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation.

When mayors and governors allow criminals to be released from jails due to the Coronavirus, Americans take notice and will do everything in their power to protect themselves and their families.

From the article linked above:

Gun sales exploded across the United States as the coronavirus pandemic spread, with retailers experiencing the highest sales volume in recorded history.

More than 2.5 million guns were sold in March as fears over the effects of the coronavirus spread, according to an analysis of FBI background check data released Wednesday by Small Arms Analytics and Forecasting (SAAF). The buying craze marked the busiest month on record for gun stores, even as some faced shutdown orders from state and local authorities. The record-setting monthly sales nearly doubled the 1.4 million guns sold in March 2019.

A separate analysis from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the firearms industry’s trade group, reached the same conclusion.“Our adjusted numbers are the largest month on record,” Mark Oliva, a spokesman for the group, told the Washington Free Beacon.

Concerns about the coronavirus—which has resulted in the release of certain prisoners, reduced enforcement of certain laws, and reduced police force numbers—drove Americans to their local gun stores and online ammunition dealers at a pace unseen before by many in the industry. The rush has been exacerbated in some states by the closure of gun stores. The high demand from Americans in the time of crisis has been repeatedly cited by gun-rights groups as they’ve sought to challenge shutdown orders in court.

I love that the Democrats, MSM, Leftists, Never Trumpers etc. continue to cry that illegals aren’t getting a check. This will piss off even more Americans that are struggling right now. I hope this question gets asked every single day.

From the article linked above:

President Donald Trump was asked by a reporter on Wednesday about “undocumented” immigrants not getting a stimulus check from the government as part of the coronavirus economic rescue package.

“Well, you know, you are saying undocumented, meaning they came in illegally,” Trump said. “A lot of people would say that we have a lot of citizens right now that won’t be working, so what are you going to do?”

[…] “It’s a very sad question, I must be honest with you, but they came in illegally and we have a lot of people that are citizens in our country that won’t be able to have jobs,” Trump said.

I stand by what I have said in reference to hydroxychloroquine. States like New York,   Michigan and Nevada aren’t prescribing it until you are nearly dead. If they would administer it to everyone that tests positive immediately, we can save thousands of lives.

From the article linked above:

Dr. Smith has been treating coronavirus patients at the Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health in East Orange, New Jersey.

Dr. Steven Smith then pointed out that not a single coronavirus patient under his care who was on the hydroxychloroquine regimen needed to be intibated.

Dr. Stephen Smith:  More person has received five days or more of the hydroxychoroquine-azithro combination has been intibated.  The chance of that occurring by chance according to my sons Elan and Hunter who did some stats for me are .000 something.  It’s ridiculously low.  It’s ridiculously low however you look at it.  We were looking at selection bias  in this situation. But I cannot think of a reason why. If all else is equal why people that received 5 days or more or even four days or more of this hydroxychloroquine-azithro regimen wouldn’t get intibated… It’s a game-changer. An absolute game-changer. I think this data goes to really support the French data… 

Laura, I think this is the beginning of the end of the pandemic.

Our President and the Coronavirus Task Force held a press briefing yesterday with the latest updates and information.

  1. I was waiting for General Milley to say we are at war with China. The CCP isn’t “just” the culprit behind the China Virus. They are ultimately behind the drug cartels and drug running through South America.

    CCP is asshoes. Wherever they roam in the world, evil exists.

  2. I love that hydroxychloroquine is working so well – just as everybody with a brain uncontaminated with TRUMP HATE and PC could have told anybody back when Didier Raoult got 6/6 cures and 2 days to virus crash, with a known mechanism explaining it.

    And those states STILL not listening – and waiting until death’s door to give the drugs? UNREAL.

    “THEY WANT THEIR WEAPON.”

    It’s sabotage. If they don’t give the drug right away, it’s SABOTAGE and these states need to be SUED to hell and back.

    Now, check this out. How FAKE SCIENCE is downplaying.

    Chloroquine’s use to treat COVID-19 is backed by US government, but many questions remain

    Old anti-malarial drugs have shown mixed results in the small clinical trials conducted so far

    by Ryan Cross
    MARCH 26, 2020 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 98, ISSUE 12

    Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, a pair of old drugs used to treat and prevent malaria, are the latest compounds to be thrust into the limelight as people tout them as treatments for the novel coronavirus.
    ……

    https://cen.acs.org/pharmaceuticals/drug-development/Coronavirus-puts-spotlight-chloroquine-questions/98/i12

    This just came out – below the fold – down the list – behind everything else – DOWNPLAYING antimalarials.

    I keep telling you – FAKE SCIENCE.

    Read the article. AND I QUOTE:

    A small clinical trial in France suggested that hydroxychloroquine helped patients recover from the virus faster, while another small study in Beijing reported that the drug offered no noticeable benefit. Several clinical trials, including one sponsored by the World Health Organization, are expected to put the drugs through more rigorous tests.

    Yeah, I’ll bet that WHO trial is gonna come in RIGHT WHERE CHINA WANTS IT.

    Did you see that? The PELOSI-STYLE WRAP-UP SMEAR, courtesy of CHYYYNNAA.

    They took the shocker results from Didier Raoult – top expert in the WORLD – no details given – and equated them with some study in BEIJING (yeah, that would be COMMIE CENTRAL – not just China) that says (maybe) that it doesn’t work.

    Do people see what is going on here?

    The head of the top chemistry department in the COUNTRY is a “Thousand Talents” bribery boy, connected to Wuhan U. And now we see that the American Chemical Society – and I find this even more shocking than Lieber – is helping sell a ChiCom downplay narrative.

    Go to the COMMENTS for the best part:

    While not a clinical trials expert, I would like to point out the there is a tremendous difference between the two studies cited. In the French study 14/20 (compared to 2/16) being virus free is a big difference – yes there are questions about what “virus free” means, the low number of patients, and the open-label nature of the study potentially allowing bias in the interpretation. Compare that with the Chinese study showing 14/15 virus free compared to 13/15 in the control group. In this latter case very few drugs in the treatment of any infection would be able to show efficacy due to the extremely high success rate in the control group. If anything, the Chinese study suggests no detrimental effects of hydroxychloroquine. While these studies should not be used to encourage uncontrolled use of these drugs, we as scientists, should be clear what these different studies show. The bottomline is that these two studies do NOT show conflicting data, and statements such as given in the article – “a small study in Shanghai also rained on the hydroxychloroquine parade” – are both inaccurate and overly pessimistic.

    The reason these are equated is because PC and herd-follow are absolutely required in C&EN journos for over 20 years now.

    Bottom line, FAKE SCIENCE.

    C&E News was where the China hoax (“global warming”) infiltration began. C&E News is where it still is.

        Chloroquine is a potent inhibitor of SARS coronavirus infection and spread

        Abstract
        Background
        Severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) is caused by a newly discovered coronavirus (SARS-CoV). No effective prophylactic or post-exposure therapy is currently available.

        Results
        We report, however, that chloroquine has strong antiviral effects on SARS-CoV infection of primate cells. These inhibitory effects are observed when the cells are treated with the drug either before or after exposure to the virus, suggesting both prophylactic and therapeutic advantage. In addition to the well-known functions of chloroquine such as elevations of endosomal pH, the drug appears to interfere with terminal glycosylation of the cellular receptor, angiotensin-converting enzyme 2. This may negatively influence the virus-receptor binding and abrogate the infection, with further ramifications by the elevation of vesicular pH, resulting in the inhibition of infection and spread of SARS CoV at clinically admissible concentrations.

        Conclusion
        Chloroquine is effective in preventing the spread of SARS CoV in cell culture. Favorable inhibition of virus spread was observed when the cells were either treated with chloroquine prior to or after SARS CoV infection.

            But we all know that is TOO LATE!! If that is the current guidance, I sure hope it changes quickly as availability ramps up.

            We’ll put up with a lot, but withholding available meds would be a dealbreaker for me in terms of “quietly” accepting what is going on.

    What if the FDA is requiring a positive COVID-19 test and hospitalization of the patient BEFORE the MD can prescribe the medicine combo, because if the MD treated based on symptoms as an outpatient and the test came back NEGATIVE it proves the combo works on other viruses like para-influenza. There would not be a need for the flu shot. That money dries up.
