PA Governor Pivots: Gun Dealers ‘Life Sustaining,’ Can Remain Open

On March 24, 2020, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf (D) augmented his list of “life-sustaining” businesses to include gun dealers, allowing them to remain open as long as they adhere to certain restrictions.

The new language was added under Trade, Transportation, & Utilities, in the subsection Sporting Goods, Hobby, Book, & Music Stores.

It says:
Firearms dealers may operate physical businesses on a limited basis to complete only the portions of a sale/transfer that must be conducted in-person under the law, subject to the following restrictions: 1) all such sale/transfers will be conducted by individual appointment during limited hours only so as to minimize social interactions and congregating of persons; 2) the dealer will comply with social distancing, sanitization of applicable area between appointments, and other mitigation measures to protect its employees and the public.

Neighbors say Pledge of Allegiance together to check in during State of Emergency

ANNAPOLIS, Md. —On a cul de sac in a quiet Annapolis neighborhood, something has recently become a morning routine.

"I needed these kids to have a normalcy and I needed it," said Danielle Lawrance.

Lawrance and her daughters Olivia and Emilia walk to the end of their driveway to meet their neighbors and say some familiar words. Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance may have started as a way to keep a little familiarity for the kids, but it didn't take long for the whole cul de sac to join in.

"It just warms our heart. We're a military family and we consider these people are shipmates, which is a very endearing term in the Navy," said Kathie Morrison.

Harris Announces Emergency Coronavirus Grants to Eastern Shore

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) announced the award of $218,217 in federal grants from the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).  Funding was provided by the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2020, also known as the “Phase I” Congressional emergency legislation.  HRSA-funded health centers may use the awards to address screening and testing needs, acquire medical supplies, and boost telehealth capacity in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Specifically, three health centers serving the Eastern Shore have been awarded funding:

  • West Cecil Health Center, Inc - $61,393
  • Choptank Community Health System, Inc. - $76,330
  • Three Lower Counties Community Services, Inc. - $80,494

Congressman Harris made the following statement:
“As a physician and Member of Congress, I voted in favor of the Phase I Coronavirus emergency response bill, and I am pleased to see these funds support our local health centers on the Eastern Shore.  These federal grants provide our local communities with immediate and flexible funding to address urgent needs.  I will continue to work to ensure that the federal government’s response to this virus is effective, efficient, and targeted to provide real assistance where and when it is most needed.”

China Uses Coronavirus Crisis to Bulldoze Churches and Temples

Religious freedom watchdog groups are accusing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) of using the Wuhan coronavirus epidemic as an opportunity to intensify their crackdown on religion, bulldozing some churches and placing others under heavy surveillance.

“China is now holding itself up as a model for fighting the coronavirus. But fighting the pandemic hasn’t stopped communist officials from persecuting Christians,” Todd Nettleton, a spokesman for the nonprofit group Voice of the Martyrs (VOM), told Fox News on Tuesday.


First Case Of COVID-19 At Dover AFB Confirmed

An Air Force member currently assigned to Dover AFB was confirmed positive for COVID-19 March 24, 2020, according to the USAF.

Officials said samples from the individual were confirmed at an off-base medical facility in Delaware.

The individual is currently in isolation on the installation in accordance with Department of Defense guidance and all other appropriate public health procedures.

“We are carefully monitoring this situation and making appropriate notifications,” said Col. Matthew Jones, 436th Airlift Wing commander. “The health and safety of Team Dover continue to be the top priority and leadership from Dover AFB is committed to working closely with local agencies to mitigate further spread of the virus.


Here's how much money folks can expect to get from the Senate stimulus deal

Lawmakers struck a $2 trillion stimulus deal early Wednesday that includes sending checks directly to individuals amid the coronavirus crisis — but it will likely take until at least May before the money goes out.

Under the plan as it was being negotiated, single Americans would receive $1,200, married couples would get $2,400, and parents would see $500 for each child under age 17.

However, the payments would start to phase out for individuals with adjusted gross incomes of more than $75,000, and those making more than $99,000 would not qualify at all. The thresholds are doubled for couples.


My Husband Is a First Responder. COVID-19 Hits Home for the Kids and Me.

Last fall my husband was one of three firefighters to save a family from an apartment fire. All three men won an award from the county for their courage.

But my husband, who also is an emergency medical technician, won’t be stepping up to receive that award any time soon. The ceremony was canceled because of COVID-19.

I haven’t heard a peep of complaint from him, and I know I won’t. First responders don’t like to be fawned over. In fact, they often refuse even modest appreciation (unless it’s in the form of a baked good).


Man charged for allegedly yelling ‘corona,’ coughing in cop’s face

An Illinois man who was “foaming at the mouth” yelled “corona” and deliberately coughed in a Chicago cop’s face when the officer responded to a car accident, authorities allege.

Anthony Ponzi, 21, was “highly agitated” when Chicago police responded to the scene of a crash Sunday in the city’s Rogers Park section, according to an arrest report obtained by the Chicago Tribune.

Ponzi then yelled “corona, OK” and coughed directly into an officer’s face as the cop tried to check the Wilmette man for signs of impairment, police said.

The officer “immediately felt particles of saliva/breath” on his face, according to the arrest report.

Conservative, Not Liberal, Cities Are Ending the White-Black Achievement Gap in Education

A recent report by Chris Stewart has shed new light on some of the educational problems faced by black youth. The report is titled “The Secret Shame: How America’s Most Progressive Cities Betray Their Commitment to Educational Opportunity for All.”

Stewart is a self-described liberal and CEO of Brightbeam, a nonprofit network of education activists who want to hold progressive political leaders accountable.

The report asks, “So how do we explain outstandingly poor educational results for minority children in San Francisco—which also happens to be one of the wealthiest cities in the country?” “The Secret Shame” reports that progressive cities, on average, have black/white achievement gaps in math and reading that are 15 and 13 percentage points higher than in conservative cities.

For example, in San Francisco, 70% of white students are proficient in math; for black students it’s 12%—a 58-point gap. In Washington, D.C., 83% of white students scored proficient in reading compared to 23% of black students—a 60-point gap.


The Truth About the Charge That Trump ‘Eliminated’ White House Pandemic Office Before Coronavirus

A chief line of attack during the coronavirus crisis from former Obama administration officials and leading Democrats is that President Donald Trump shut down a White House office on pandemics that might have stopped COVID-19 from spreading—or at least alleviated the threat.

The attack is based on a 2018 decision by then-national security adviser John Bolton to reorganize the White House’s National Security Council.

But the top National Security Council official at the time of the change stressed that no office was closed.

“We consolidated three directorates into one,” Tim Morrison, former senior director for counterproliferation and biodefense on the NSC, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. “This eliminated layers in the reporting chain and in the accountability chain.”

Chinese Ambassador Lauds Hillary Clinton’s Attack on President Trump

An ambassador from China is lauding Hillary Clinton’s recent attack on President Trump.

“The president is turning to racist rhetoric to distract from his failures to take the coronavirus seriously early on, make tests widely available, and adequately prepare the country for a period of crisis,” Clinton wrote on Twitter on Wednesday.

“Don’t fall for it. Don’t let your friends and family fall for it.”

That prompted a response from a representative of the communist regime, the Chinese ambassador to South Africa, Lin Songtian.

“It is true,” Lin wrote regarding Clinton’s attack that Trump calling coronavirus a “Chinese virus” is “racist rhetoric.”

“Justice always speak [sic] loudly.”


Helpful Tips and Websites for Parents Schooling at Home

Parents throughout America may be struggling to find ways to encourage their children’s learning while working from home themselves during the coronavirus crisis.

Many school districts are ill-equipped to conduct full online learning, but, despite the situation, parents can meet the challenge of providing educational experiences for their children of any age and may find it to be a very rewarding opportunity at that.

First and foremost, parents can de-stress immediately with the knowledge they do not need to replicate school at home. Remember that schools must provide services to many children at once, and now you can devote time to your children alone.

Ty Salvant, a veteran homeschooler with six children and founder of Louisiana’s NOLA Homeschoolers, emphasized to Fox 8 that parents don’t need to provide six to eight hours of instructional time daily for their children.

“One of the tips I give to families of elementary age and younger students is that two hours of instruction is enough, and it doesn’t have to be consecutive,” Salvant said, adding that four hours is appropriate for high school-age children.

Nurse: Sickest Coronavirus Patients Have Red Eyes

Chelsey Earnest, a veteran registered nurse who cared for coronavirus patients at a Kirkland, Washington, nursing home — which was hit hard by the outbreak — said the sickest ones all seemed to have red eyes.

"It's something that I witnessed in all of them (the patients)," she told CNN. "They have, like ... allergy eyes. The white part of the eye is not red. It's more like they have red eye shadow on the outside of their eyes."

The news network said for Earnest and her colleagues at the Life Care Center and admitting doctors at a nearby hospital, the red eyes had become the sign the coronavirus had struck.

"We've had [nursing home] patients that just had the red eyes as the only symptom that we saw and go to the hospital and pass away," she said.

Exodus to Florida: Gov Desantis says anyone entering the state must be quarantined for 14 days after 'huge amount' of New Yorkers and New Jersey residents fled the states amid coronavirus outbreak

Florida's Governor Ron Desantis announced that he will require coronavirus testing of all air travelers arriving in his state from the New York City region after a 'huge amount' of people, who were given stay at home orders, began showing up in his state.

Desantis, speaking at a news conference on Monday in Sumter County, noted that there are more than 190 direct flights from New York's airports, which includes Newark Liberty across the river in New Jersey.

He also speculated that 'every flight has someone on it that is positive for COVID-19.'


“I Don’t Care! I Don’t Care! I Don’t Care!” Pelosi Snaps at CNN’s Dana Bash For Asking About Trump’s Plans to Put America Back to Work

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi snapped at CNN’s Dana Bash Tuesday afternoon when the host brought up Trump’s recent remarks suggesting bringing Americans out of quarantine and back to work.

“I don’t have time to follow people’s twits…tweets, Twitters, whatever, tweets — so don’t expect me to comment on that,” Pelosi said.

“Well, even beyond Twitter, the President of the United States is signaling that he could open it up,” Bash said.

“What is your opinion on that?” Bash said pressing Pelosi.


Hong Kong ‘Beat’ Coronavirus. But After Easing Restrictions Too Fast – It’s Back.

Hong Kong was a model of how to handle the novel coronavirus. But now it’s coming back.

In early March, Time magazine called the region “a lodestar for its ability to seemingly keep the disease at bay”, but the mistake of sending people back to work before the virus was truly dealt with was not far off.

In the first week of March, Hong Kong tried to return to a semblance of normality. Their cases have ticked up ever since.

The key to their initial successes was the aggressive response:

By Feb. 1, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore had all proactively implemented travel restrictions on passengers coming from the mainland, contravening the World Health Organization’s [WHO] insistence that travel bans were not necessary. The precautions came at a significant economic cost to these international hubs, which all rely on mainland China as their biggest trading partner and source of tourists.

The outright proscription of social gatherings paid huge dividends:


CDC crippled US response to coronavirus by sending hard-hit states like New York and Washington just ONE testing kit and distributing flawed diagnostics in the outbreak's early days, experts say

A series of missteps at the nation's top public health agency caused a critical shortage of tests for coronavirus, hobbling the federal response as the pandemic spread across the country like wildfire, an Associated Press review found.

President Donald Trump assured Americans earlier this month that the test developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is 'perfect' and that 'anyone who wants a test can get a test'.

But more than two months after the first US case of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, was confirmed, many people still cannot get tested.

In February, as the virus began taking root in the US population, CDC data shows government labs processed 352 COVID-19 tests - an average of only a dozen per day.


Biden Accuser Turned Down By Me-Too Women’s Organization

A former staff member of Joe Biden who says he acted inappropriately toward her was turned away by a legal defense fund that spends millions of dollars supporting sexual harassment lawsuits by women.

A staff member of the organization, Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, first encouraged the Biden accuser but then in February told her the organization can’t help her because Biden is running for president and taking him on in court might jeopardize the organization’s nonprofit status, according to a story published by The Intercept on Tuesday, March 24.

A tax law expert told The Intercept the explanation doesn’t make sense, because as long as the organization uses the same “long-established neutral criteria” it uses toward other targets in a manner “completely independent of their running for office,” the organization would not be violating tax law governing nonprofit groups.


Virus Relief Hits Pelosi's Pork in the Road

"Do Democrats even care?" It's a fair question -- and the editors at the Wall Street Journal aren't the only ones asking it. Here we are, in the middle of one of the greatest crises in American history, and Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) swooped into town to demand new curtains for the Kennedy Center. The $35 million for the performing arts hub is just one of the shockers in the House's 1,100-page virus relief counterproposal, which proves there will never be a shortage of one thing in D.C. -- pork peddlers.

Before Pelosi showed up, Americans were finally getting a good look at what the two sides can accomplish when they work together. Hours away from a Senate deal that would put real relief into families' hands, that goodwill vanished in a cloud of sleazy opportunism. "[We were] all zeroing in on what looked like... a done deal," Senator Mike Braun (R-Ind.) shook his head. "That's what disappoints me about this place," he told listeners on "Washington Watch" Monday. "We could have gotten this across the finish line," but Pelosi "wanted to commandeer the process."

Suddenly, Democrats were insisting on a whole laundry list of concessions on everything from climate change to abortion and sanctuary cities -- nothing, Braun argued, that had anything to do with saving lives or the economy. And this is all going on, he lamented, during a "bona fide effort to tamp this virus down." While the rest of the country is sitting at home, anxiously waiting for help and direction, Democratic leaders are hijacking the relief money desperately needed by hospitals, families, and small businesses. Why? Because their concern isn't helping this nation. It's advancing extremism -- no matter the cost.


10 Common-sense Solutions to the Economic Crisis Caused by China

[A parody by the Washington Free Beacon Staff ]

In this time of global crisis and economic uncertainty, both Democrats and Republicans have been seeking to exploit the China-caused pandemic in pursuit of partisan policy objectives. Shame on them!

The Washington Free Beacon, in partnership with the David Gergen Institute for Excellence in Bipartisan Ethics and Legislative Policy Solutions (DGIEBELPS), has engineered the following economic relief proposals to rescue the American economy from the ongoing Wuhan crisis. Congress should include them as part of any legislative effort to revive the economy in these perilous times.

1) Tax Cuts Now: In an effort to provide much-needed relief for struggling hedge funds and other high-frequency traders, a permanent holiday on all capital gains taxes should be implemented immediately. In addition, back-dated subsidies should be considered for all who have suffered under the inheritance tax regime since it was wrongfully re-instituted in 2011.

2) Firearms for All: In addition to (or perhaps instead of) sending checks to all Americans, the government should consider providing complimentary firearms to all citizens, particularly the most vulnerable. As our local police forces become strained in the fight against looters and other petty criminals, regular citizens must be empowered. Firearms inequality will only be exacerbated by the crisis without strong federal action. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control should issue new guidance on proper social distancing at gun shows.

Florida Governor Orders Incoming New Yorkers to Self-Quarantine

Anyone arriving in Florida from airports in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut during the coronavirus outbreak will have to self quarantine for two weeks or risk facing criminal charges, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has declared in an executive order, CNN has reported.

DeSantis, in explaining the directive at a press conference, said “there's over 190 direct flights from the New York City area to the state of Florida, and I would reckon, given the outbreak there, that every single flight has somebody on it who's positive for Covid-19."

The Republican governor added that health and law enforcement officials will take information from every passenger arriving on flights from those states, including people who are intending to stay with family in Florida.

The executive order, issued on Monday, states that any violation would be a second degree misdemeanor that could include jail time, a fine or both.


Connecticut party of 50 guests became coronavirus 'super-spreading event,' report says

A 40th birthday bash that a Connecticut woman held earlier this month is now being eyed by health experts as a suspected coronavirus “super-spreading event” after more than half of its 50 guests later tested positive for the sickness, a report says.

The March 5 gathering at a home in the small town of Westport – which the New York Times is dubbing “Party Zero” – occurred when Connecticut had no confirmed cases of COVID-19. As of Tuesday, the state is now dealing with 415 cases, 270 of which are in Fairfield County, where Westport is located, according to statistics from Johns Hopkins University.

The Westport celebration “may be an example of the kind of thing we call a super-spreading event,” William Hanage, an associate professor of epidemiology at Harvard University, told the New York Times.

Coronavirus and clothes: How to handle laundry during pandemic

We know to practice safe social distancing and frequently wash our hands to protect ourselves and our loved ones during the coronavirus pandemic — but how about our clothes?

Though much remains unknown about the novel COVID-19 virus, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently states that the viral disease is most frequently transmitted from person to person via respiratory droplets, such as when an infected person coughs or sneezes within about six feet of close contacts.


After returning home from work, stores or other public places, there’s no need to change clothes entirely to fight the spread of the viral disease, former CDC Chief Medical Officer Dr. Robert Amler told Fox News.

China Virus Demands Reckoning for Beijing

The China Virus has wreaked economic havoc. It has infected tens of thousands of Americans, killing several hundred so far. This is an immense tragedy for all those affected, whether they have lost jobs, health (either temporarily or permanently), or loved ones.

Sadly, it didn’t have to happen. Despite massive dis-information efforts, evidence has emerged that the government of the People’s Republic of China engaged in a cover up that lasted weeks, if not months. Even as this evidence mounts, the Chinese Communists have spewed the despicable lie that the Wuhan coronavirus is somehow a biological weapon developed by the United States Army.

Mainstream media outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Times of London — all of which are grossly biased against President Donald Trump — have published reports about what the Chinese Communists knew, when they knew it, and how they tried to keep that knowledge from the world. The Financial Times has some even more damning reports about how Taiwan’s warnings to the World Health Organization were ignored.

China fed the world lies and propaganda for weeks to cover up the existence of the Wuhan coronavirus, and at the very least the WHO went along. It may be more than coincidence that China backed the election of WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in 2017. Ghebreyesus has spent the last two months downplaying the threat, while providing cover and offering fawning praise for the ChiComs.


New York coronavirus ‘curve is actually increasing,’ state may need 140K hospital beds, Cuomo warns

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued a sobering warning to residents on Tuesday as he said that the coronavirus curve hasn’t been “flattened,” and “is actually increasing.” He then cautioned that the apex of the virus could be as many as 14 to 21 days away.

“We projected an apex at 100,000 hospital beds needed, the new projection suggests as high as 140,000 hospital beds will be needed,” he said, adding that New York has 25,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Cuomo called for ventilators to be sent to the state, as the region is dealing with 10 times more cases than New Jersey, which has the second-highest number of cases in the U.S., followed closely by Washington and California.

Researchers: 69 Drugs May Be Effective Against Coronavirus Including Chloroquine

Scientists have recently identified 69 drugs and experimental compounds that may be effective in combating the novel coronavirus.

On Sunday, the New York Times reported:
Some of the medications are already used to treat other diseases, and repurposing them to treat Covid-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus, may be faster than trying to invent a new antiviral from scratch, the scientists said.

The list of drug candidates appeared in a study published on the web site bioRxiv. The researchers have submitted the paper to a journal for publication.
The Trump administration has slashed red tape to distribute unapproved therapies and vaccines to patients in need faster and to identify effective drugs. Health officials have named the virus itself SARS CoV-2 and the illness caused by the virus COVID-19.

WHO Warns U.S. Could Become Coronavirus Epicenter as Cases Top 50,000

She said the U.S. has the "potential" to overtake Europe as the new epicenter of the virus.

"We cannot say that is the case yet, but it does have that potential," Harris said.


Maryland confirms fourth coronavirus-related death on the same day it sees highest jump in confirmed cases

Maryland’s fourth death from the new coronavirus was confirmed Tuesday, with the announcement coming on the same day the state reported 61 new cases of the virus, its highest single-day increase.

A Prince George’s County man in his 60s who suffered from underlying health conditions was the state’s fourth coronavirus-related death, the Maryland Department of Health announced Tuesday afternoon. Three of Maryland’s four deaths were men in their 60s with underlying health conditions, with two in Prince George’s County and the other in Baltimore County. A Montgomery County woman in her 40s, who also had underlying medical conditions, was announced Saturday as Maryland’s third death.

The total number of cases statewide reached 349, a 21% increase over Monday, when Gov. Larry Hogan ordered the closure of Maryland’s nonessential businesses. The 61 new cases represent the state’s biggest one-day jump to date, said Mike Ricci, Hogan’s spokesman.


Atlanta: ICU units are at 100% capacity: Any more patients can't be treated says Atlanta mayor

The Mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, has just confirmed that all of the cities ICU units are at 100% capacity, according to CBS's Shon Gables and Senior Executive Producer Phil Landeros. Any more patients that need critical care in the ICU specifically won't be able to get it.

Less than 24 hours ago, the mayor signed a 14-day Stay at Home Order for all its residents.

"Flattening the curve" hasn't worked yet. The daily death-rate in the U.S. increased on Monday to 140, from 111 the day prior.

As we've been hearing for days now from health experts from around the world, one of the biggest disasters of the fast spread of the coronavirus is not having enough medical resources for everyone at the same time. That means - if you can't breath and you need a ventilator at a hospital - you can't get one. If that's the case, you'll have more deaths than you would have had with a slow virus growth.

White House, Senate reach late-night deal on massive $2T coronavirus stimulus package

The White House and Senate leaders reached a breakthrough deal shortly after midnight Wednesday on a massive and historic $2 trillion coronavirus relief package for workers and businesses, capping days of heated negotiations that had nearly been derailed by last-minute demands from House Democrats.

“Ladies and gentleman, we are done," White House legislative affairs director Eric Ueland announced as he left the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., near midnight. "We have a deal."

Ueland told reporters that "much of the work on bill text has been completed and I’m hopeful over the next few hours we’ll finish what's left and we will circulate it early in the morning.”
