Uncertainty Rules The News

These days you don’t know what the news will bring. Furthermore the latest spate of shoot-from-the-hip fixes take the cake. Learn more in Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912.

Pandemic Podcast Series

In addition I’ve been doing a series of podcasts on reactions to the virus.

Old Political World Already Dead

First of all the left-right political spectrum is out of date.

Conservative Versus Liberal? Get Real

Consequently, conservative versus liberal doesn’t even begin to describe what we’re dealing with.

Minimizer In Chief Suddenly Worried

Even more President Trump minimized what became a pandemic from the start. As a result, his supporters parroted what he said with gusto.

Trump went from pointing fingers and calling Coronavirus a hoax, to cowed in one day!

Learn why in Pandemic-Finally-Kills-Conservatism-Bob Davis Podcast 912.

Losing Their Principles For Trump

Conservatives believe in Limited Government or personal freedom, Economic Freedom the US Constitution and above all a debt free future. Moreover the right wing hates deficit spending, the Federal Reserve and Executive Overreach?

Trump Shifts

And yet in a few hours President Trump abandoned conservatives! He proposed a series of policy ideas that should have former and current democratic presidential candidates claiming copyright infringement!

Checks, Deficits, Bail Outs

Especially relevant, perhaps two thousand dollar checks for every American. A trillion dollar bail out package on top of a trillion dollar deficit just for 2020 and 23 trillion in public debt. Using the military. Shutting down private businesses.

Threatening The Federal Reserve Chair

In addition, the president threatened to fire the Federal Reserve Chair because interest rates weren’t being cut far enough, fast enough.

Wall Street Response

Finally the response from Wall Street isn’t good.

Investors want to see the president leading the government to take real action to address a growing crisis.

Never Waste A Crisis

In conclusion, it’s time for questions about the future of the republican party and this president. Remember those Obama Era Memes about not wasting a crisis?

Now they’re being applied to ‘conservatives’.

Ebola. “Ebola”, a word that may soon become synonymous with “Government Failure”. Does the US Government’s response to two Dallas health care workers contracting the Ebola virus make you feel more, or less confident in government. Breaking news these days provokes questions on what heavily funded government agencies are doing with our tax dollars … because they sure don’t seem to be protecting us from Ebola. Turns out the second Dallas health care worker to be infected, Amber Vinson, told the CDC she had a slight fever before boarding a flight from Cleveland to Dallas, and the CDC said, ‘Yeah, go ahead’. Turns out the CDC procedures for containing the disease at Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas were not only inadequate, according to Doctors Without Borders — the organization most experienced at containing the Ebola Virus — the CDC’s guidelines for containing Ebola are flat out wrong. What is CDC director Friedman’s response? In 20/20 hindsight, we could have done better. Huh? Meanwhile, President Obama’s Ebola conference went well into the evening, and something tells us they weren’t talking about the Phoenix Suns or the Lakers basketball teams. The president wants Governors to know they can call out the national guard, and that the federal government wants to help them. Is it Halloween yet? Because that is a pretty scary thought! Is this making you feel better about the government’s response to Ebola? By the way, suddenly, President Obama thinks appointing an Ebola Czar might be a good idea, and he isn’t philosophically ‘opposed’ to a travel ban, he was just advised not to order one. Wait, is that a bus coming? Because it sure looks like someone will be thrown under it soon. First name that pops up? CDC director Tom Freidmen. Meanwhile people from Ebola stricken countries in West Africa have just been told the President is considering a travel ban. Think they’ll jump on planes to get in before that ban goes into effect? Let’s get real; The President could order a travel ban instantly, with no warning, and he only needs his phone, not even the pen. Kenya and Nigeria, instituted travel bans weeks ago and credit those bans with saving their countries from infection, but somehow its not a good idea for the US. Meanwhile the CDC gets 7 Billion dollars a year from American taxpayers and at least 200 million from private donors in the Atlanta area. The agency spends millions trying to get states to pass mandatory motorcycle helmet laws, monitoring video game and TV ‘violence’, creating so called ‘injury centers’ that regulate – wait for it – playground equipment, lobbying for gun control efforts, and pushing ‘social norming’ in government schools. But, apparently not fighting Ebola or Enterovirus D68. Houston, we have a problem. Our government doesn’t work very well and its costing Americans an arm and a leg. What do we need to do to fix this mess and get the government out of people’s personal lives, and back to doing what it is constitutionally mandated to do.
