It's been about a week even that the President has been pozzed. (Our post was 6 days back, but the first news was from the night before.) He's been out of the hospital, what 2 or 3 days already? The guy is 74 years old and a decent amount overweight, and he was released after a couple of days. People tell me that, well, yeah, President Trump's got the best medical care in the world since the Shah of Iran came. OK, I get that, but if things had been critical at any point, he would not have been released so quickly.
James Fulford at VDare writes that this quick little bout of the Kung Flu and apparent recovery makes the President look strong. (Trump Projects Strength After COVID-19 Recovery. Maybe That’s Not What Post-Americans Want But It’s What Real Americans Need) Sure, that's probably good for election results, but "looks ain't is", as I will always recall a character saying in Hawaii 5-0 (believe it or not). I'd rather he DO stuff than look strong.
In Mr. Fulford's article above, another item on VDare a few weeks ago about the refugee limit for next year going down to 15,000 people (85,000 has been the kind of number seen a couple of years back), Peter Brimelow's White Pill: Trump Has 'Literally Shut Down Legal Immigration To United States"—Immigration Lawyer, and finally, just today, Allan Wall's Trump Triumph—Caravan Stopped Cold In Central America; Telemundo’s SHOCKED*, I will have to take back some disparagement of the President.
I suppose still President Trump can't get a real, solid strategy on some of the big items on immigration, ending Birthright Citizenship, an appreciable wall - but even that is getting to be a brighter spot - and a permanent slowdown in the legal flood. No, of course, that's not all his fault. However, all of the small below-the radar items may last only until the next guy gets in (let's hope, in 4 years) or Congress and judges get wind of them.
It'd really be best if the curtailment of our immigration-invasion got put into solid law. Overturning of it can be attempted, but at least the public would be more aware. Also, if Mr. Trump had cleaned house, bureaucratically, in all the Feral Gov't agencies involved earlier, we'd have an attitude change by the rank-and-file that would help. That's another reason I do hope for a 2nd term for this President, as maybe this turnover could be accelerated.
How did this turn into an immigration post so quickly? Anyway, big kudos to the President for his work discussed in the things I've read recently. I take back a few of the things I've said.
Even without all this, it's great to see Donald Trump back for another reason. What are the Kung Flu panickers going to say now, just a lucky break? They are starting to look pretty silly. One reads about all the White House staffers testing positive. Are they cases of the COVID-19? I suppose so, right?
Let's just wait a month, shall we, and see if we read a huge headline on Yahoo** about ANY ONE of these people dying. Put it this way. You are an order of magnitude safer being around the Kung Flu-positive President Trump than you would have been in the White House around Bill and Hillary. Just ask Seth Rich, and who was that other guy with the important papers down his pants? Oh, no, wait, you can't ask those guys. They are not exactly available for comment at the moment.
The President will be fine, the First Lady will be fine, and the staffers will be fine. What are we to make of this?
Now, I gotta mention this next thing. In the tweet shown below from near midnight on 10/01 about the Kung Flue infection of him and his wife, President Trump uses the term FLOTUS! I'm sorry, but that really cracks me up.
I thought SCOTUS for "Supreme Court Of The US was way too pubic-sounding for my taste. FLOTUS sounds just silly and way too close to "floozie". Maybe she WAS a floozie before, but what kind of dignity does that give a First Lady? Please, Mr. President, don't try to save characters. No more FLOTUS.
* That is only part of Mr. Wall's title, as this was a compendium of 6 items of interest. Mr. Wall is really solid writer and big asset to VDare.
** OK, not Yahoo - I'll leave that to someone else, but I mean the standard Lyin' Press in general.
