    JC, I’ve heard Cohenite mention Zero Point Energy.

    His opinion on this post from the Chans would be valuable I think.

  2. Confused Old Misfit

    I really love those interlocutors who divine who they think might be close to the “truth” and who they think is not close.
    Implicating that they know what the “truth” is but choose no to reveal such.

  3. Peter the old fossil

    I know, God wins.

    Actually Anne, I think He’s in His favourite comfy throne, laughing his head off at how many stupid Aussies got their country t taken off them, without even noticing, while they argued about the best way to wash their hands to avoid the dreaded undeadly morona panicvirus.

    Storytime.

    Along time ago, Tesla had a dream of free energy for the world. He built the towers and proved it could work. Then he died. Then Trump’s uncle procured Tesla’s life work and nobody heard anything again.

    Fast forward some years – now we have buildings all over the country with massive spies on the top that are supposed to be for “radio” transmissions.
    Under those buildings is a massive tunnel system that almost no one has seen save for a select few.

    Fast-forward – We are in the storm. Trump orders the military deployed: Army, National Guard, Army Corps of Engineers.

    Then Trump orders auto-manufacturers (not electronic manufacturers) to mass-produce “Ventilators”. Then, during his presser today, he slips and says “generators” not once, but twice.

    What’s going on?

    What’s the most rational conversion of an automotive manufacturing plant?

    Auto -> Ventilator
    or
    Auto –> Generator (Tesla Coil)

    Trump is setting the country up for free energy and the National Guard and Army Corps of Engineers are going to be installing these generators with unfettered ability due to the lockdown.

    The “additional 30 days” is required because they are behind schedule.

    The End.

    Is that what our Authorities are afraid of, because it’s much ado about nothing at the moment.

    Anyone dumb enough to listen to Trump is at great risk.
    Endless loops of Donald Trump talking through his arse about something he knows absolutely nothing about can be extremely hazardous to both mental and physical health.
    These poor buggers found out the hard way.
    They belong to what is called Trump’s”base”.
    If the God-emperor says “jump”they ask “how high?” and “when will I come down?”.
    He’s a very dangerous individual when his minders let him loose.

    Please ban this disingenuous moron. These people consumed fish tank cleaner.

    Numtard is now using this to wrongly question a proven and safe anti-malarial, hydroxychloroqine, which both preliminary French and American data increasingly shows to be effective against COVID-19. For anyone paying attention, hydroxychloroquine has been on the medical establishments radar for almost 3 months now. Trump didn’t pull this out of his arse, his medico’s are giving him sound advice on best available data.

    LOL does Numbers seriously think Trump was telling people to chug down pool cleaner? What a complete moron!

    I want us to become the industry manufacturing country we once were and not rely on China to supply us.

    Yea Pauline, and I want to own the entire NYSE board debt free.

    How about doing these things first Pauline… you should know, after operating a Fish&Chip shop.

    1. Lower the corp tax rate to 15%.. ideally zero.
    2. Allow all capital investments to be written down 100% in year 1… if you are going to have a corp tax, otherwise there’s obviously no need..
    3. Allow any form of energy production. Stop subsidizing renewballs and ensure there is cheap and abundant energy in this country.
    4. Remove with maximum prejudice nearly all green tape while maintaining reasonable policy dealing with regular air pollution around urban areas.
    5. Remove all red tape
    6. Fire 75% of Canberra APS.
    7. Deregulate the labor market immediately
    8. Close down their ABC
    9.After you’ve fired the 75%, fire another 15% just for good measure.

    Then lets talk about man (ufacturing).

    If choose not to take of the above, you’re just full of shit.

    The roots of this merger are in the iron triangle, a mutually beneficial three-way relationship among Congress, government bureaucrats (the Deep State), and special interests (corporate). Iron triangles get their name because they are incredibly hard to remove once they are set in.

    That triangle has been there as long as humans have grouped themselves into societies requiring some institutional forms.
    It will never be removed. It may be controlled. In a limited way.

    Bill Ackman Turned $27 Million Into $2.6 Billion During the Coronavirus Crisis

    Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management hedge fund laid out $27 million to buy credit protection on global investment-grade and high-yield credit indexes. The purchases, which were made late last month when credit spreads were tighter, carried limited downside risk but the potential for significant upside. Ackman said Wednesday that he finished unwinding the hedges on Monday, reaping $2.6 billion in proceeds.

  19. Struth

    Struth, honest question.

    Do you have any links to articles supporting your assertions? Non MSM ones? I would be really happy to see them.

    Firstly, I believe we don’t have a pandemic, if every flu season we don’t have one.
    There are 14 old people dead, who were about to croak it anyway.
    You know very well if they could produce more dead they would.

    I’m not on the side that has to produce facts because I’m not saying there is a problem.
    Those saying there are, must be factual.
    I’d love to have my mind changed Calli, because I would love to think there really is a virus knocking down Australians in their thousands, as it may excuse government Martial Law action.
    However, there is not even many old people dying from it, the Hospitals are not swamped, or else it would be everywhere.
    Australians, young and old will now be dying prematurely, and in their thousands from now on, but not from this virus.
    The deaths already from this government takeover would already out number the virus deaths.
    Suicides, and oldies dying alone that may have been saved had family been around them.

    The point is Calli, they now don’t have to produce anymore deaths, they don’t really need to scare us anymore because the cocky shits already are in control by force of arms.
    Now as they days progress people will realize, this is the new reality.
    The lack of propaganda here is a sign of totalitarian victory.
    They’ll just top it up with a couple of fright stories a day, just to keep you shitting yourself.
    The goal is the ruin of the west’s economies, the removal of Trump and Chinese/Socialist global control.
    That’s patently obvious, it’s not a conspiracy theory, and is only seen as one by those in a state of denial.

  20. thefrollickingmole

    Remove with maximum prejudice nearly all green tape while maintaining reasonable policy dealing with regular air pollution around urban areas.

    Id go further but in a different way.

    You can lodge applications/ injunctions against businessess on those grounds provided you can escrow the expected legal fees for the other side.
    Plus automatic damages awards if your case fails.

    You want to hold up a billion dollar project for 6 months the company should be able to itemize every expense that delay costs them against you.
    Money up front.

    At least 8 strains of the coronavirus are spreading across the globe

    Could that be why some are more affected than others? Does contracting one form immunise against other forms? Is this a clue to reinfections?

  24. Fisky

    Is the WHO deliberately trying to infect as many people as possible? In mid January they falsely claimed there was no human-to-human transmission. Now they are saying, don’t wear medical masks! This organisation should be held criminally liable.

    twitter.com/WHOWPRO/status/1243171683067777024

    If you do not have any respiratory symptoms, such as fever, cough, or runny nose, you do not need to wear a medical mask. When used alone, masks can give you a false feeling of protection and can even be a source of infection when not used correctly. Rightwards arrowhttps://bit.ly/2QN3QOp

  25. Peter the old fossil

    MV you obviously couldn’t find what you thought I said.

    Actually, Struth I did. I haven’t bothered about it because, as you say, there’s far too much important stuff now. We can go back to personal stuff later. Assuming we’re still alive that is. Which, to be perfectly frank, is not looking good for either of us.

    These people do not like spotlights on them.

    Thats silly Palin, talking about death panels….
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/03/29/intensive-care-coronavirus-patients-now-limited-reasonably-certain/
    Intensive care for coronavirus patients is now being limited to those “reasonably certain” to survive, a major NHS London trust has conceded.

    A department head at Imperial College Healthcare revealed on Sunday that fewer and fewer marginal patients are being selected for ventilator treatment because so many serious cases require a fortnight on the machines.

    They are skipping the panels altogether and going straight to triage.

  27. Fisky is right. During the Union Royal Commission a Chinese builder from Sydney gave evidence about giving money to CFMEU even though none of his workers were Union. The money, $10,000, was used to fund the trip by Sinn Fein guys to Australia. Probably not the only payment he has made. For what in return ?

    I recall a picture on front page of Oz before Fed election. It was Shorten in WA with about 20 construction workers. Every single one was Chinese. Not one journalist questioned it.

    “You know why foreign businesses almost never get taken before Fair Work Australia despite underpayment being rife among international students? It’s because the Chi-coms are paying off the union leaders. Australian workers must take direct action against these businesses!”

  28. Fisky

    Jan 17 – “Does not recommend quarantine”
    Jan 19 – “No clear evidence for sustained H2H”
    Feb 3 – “There is no need to restrict travel in order to slow the spread of the virus”

    Also, ignored Taiwan’s warning of H2H transmission in December, and still refuse to utter the word “Taiwan”!

    The unions are not interested in foreign companies at all. They are paid to shut up. Only white businesses are expected to follow IR law. That’s the reality I’m afraid.

  33. JC

    Australian workers must take direct action against these businesses!”

    Nonsense. We’re just adding more laws to an already burdened legal system. For instance, firms have no freaking idea what they should pay staff because of all the different pay scales. It’s the equivalent of a freaking late term abortion. Remove all legislation supporting union thuggery and then there is no need to pay off unions. The CFMEU is the equivalent of a mafia family running the construction business in NY.

  34. Just in case you need reminding.

    Not one story about a politician or civil servant taking a pay cut. Or how about some firings of unnecessary staff. If it is now ok for a business to lay off thousands of workers, presumably some in Unions, why not them.

    Royalties belong to the true owners of the land… those that carry a legitimate title.

    And just like that lock the gate disappeared.

    From wiki..
    Ownership
    In the United States, oil and gas rights to a particular parcel may be owned by private individuals, corporations, Indian tribes, or by local, state, or federal governments. Oil and gas rights extend vertically downward from the property line. Unless explicitly separated by a deed, oil and gas rights are owned by the surface landowner.

    Oil and gas rights offshore are owned by either the state or federal government and leased to oil companies for development. The tidelands controversy involve the limits of state ownership.

    Although oil and gas laws vary by state, the laws regarding ownership prior to, at, and after extraction are nearly universal.

    Which country is having a gas boom?
    And which is having shortages?

  39. Fisky

    Couple celebrate a traditional wedding in Melbourne surrounded by friends and family despite strict social gathering rules banning more than FIVE people at nuptials

    A couple have broken social distancing rules to marry in a traditional [email protected] wedding in Melbourne with more than five guests attending the ceremony.

    Footage showed the pair dancing with family and friends at the reception in on Sunday, 7 News reported.

    The wedding party danced in close proximity, ignoring government rules forbidding people from having a wedding with more than five people.

    They also broke social distancing policies requiring people to stand at least 1.5m away from each other to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

    You are not allowed to gather in groups of more than two, buy ammunition, play in a park, yet getting your hair done and thousands of truckies crossing state borders daily while you can’t and all other idiocies in this MARTIAL LAW grab for power, many things that spread the virus is still allowed.
    Just not being armed, not gathering in groups (to protest) and when these sites go down, and new Chinese style internet regulations are in place you’ll be as in the dark as a half a billion Chinese bat soup eating peasants.

    Tell us, Fisky. Which choice would you make.

    OK so we are talking about different things here. Australian employers are often not paying full entitlements, partly because the system is complicated, and partly because a number of them actually don’t want to.

    I am talking about Asian restaurants and supermarkets primarily that do not even pretend to pay the headline award rate. The minimum wage is $19 an hour? They are paying 15. Their employees will not complain because they fear it will affect their transition to permanent residence. And the unions have zero interest in this.

    So “white” employers are competing on cost with traders who are breaking employment law. There is not going to be any labour market deregulation, so don’t even bother calling for it. There is just – do we enforce employment law equally or not? That is all.

  66. JC

    zipperhead.

    Stop frightening the horses. You should have posted the important part of the story you headlined and linked to.

    Here:

    Researchers said the data, which includes samples every continent except Antarctica, revealed the virus is mutating on average every 15 days, National Geographic reported.

    But Nextstrain cofounder Trevor Bedford said the mutations are so small that there is no strain of the virus that is more harmful.

    “These mutations are completely benign and useful as a puzzle piece to uncover how the virus is spreading,” Bedford told the outlet.

    He said the various strains allow researchers to see whether community transmission is widespread throughout a region, which can inform whether lockdown measures have been effective.

    “We’ll be able to tell how much less transmission we’re seeing and answer the question, ‘Can we take our foot off the gas?’” Bedford said.

    Charles Chiu, a professor of medicine and infectious disease at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, said that the database also provides insight into how the virus is moving throughout the US, according to USA Today.

    “The outbreaks are trackable,” Chiu said. “We have the ability to do genomic sequencing almost in real-time to see what strains or lineages are circulating.”

    Most of the cases on the West Coast are linked to a strain first identified in Washington state, which is only three mutations away from the first known strain, the outlet reported.

    Mutations are to be expected as the virus spreads and continues to replicate. That’s no biggie.

    Put 2,000,000 out of work.

    Shane Wright was talking of 2.5 – 3 Million casual and part time workers alone being unemployed on Insiders 2 weeks ago.
    What sort of dent does that make in the Economy and advertising revenue, Chanel No. Nein?

  72. Harlequin Decline

    One additional statistic that would help keep the severity of the virus in perspective would be to normalise the deaths in terms of years of life lost and publish those as well as the actual number.

    Actuarial tables have an expected lifespan from a given age using additional information relating to health, parents etc.

    The basic input information should be available at time of admission to hospital so, for each death a clerk in the state or federal health department could gather the relevant information and estimate the remaining lifespan without the virus from the tables.

    They would then keep a cumulative total of years lost and divide it by the mean lifespan to give a normalised number of deaths.

    So, as a simplified example if the mean lifespan in Oz is 80 years and someone dies from the virus at 20 with no health problems then he has lost 60 years. Someone who dies at 70 from the virus with diabetes and a heart condition would normally say have an remaining life of say 5 years. Someone who is moderately overweight dies at 60 from the virus would lose say 15 years.

    Cumulative total years lost =65+5+10 years=80 years.

    80 years =1 life.

    So 3 actual deaths but when normalised in terms of years lost becomes 1.

    Annie, the only thing cronkite is an expert in, is apportioning rates in land transfers. He’s so good, he can run it down to the last cent owed or owing. Don’t ask him about anything else.

    Well there you have it Anne, from head prefect, an expert in cigars, shorting and oily buttocks.

    But seriously, anyone who can replicate over distance tesla’s wireless electricity is going to go broke since how would you meter it. In addition the problem with tesla’s idea was directional control and scaling.

    Which coincidentally is the problem with ZPE Along with entropy which means only unequal energy can be harnessed otherwise a perpetual energy contradiction is produced. Similarly the Casimir effect cannot be scaled otherwise we would have Casimir thrusters sending us everywhere without fuel just by utilising harnessing quantum field energy.

    We could attach one to head prefect’s arse and he would whizz around the place.

    Sorry Anne, it ain’t going to happen.

    Stop ignoring reality. Every single freaking tradie carries two prices. The one with GST and the cash price. Most small businesses are doing shit in the side, so there’s hardly any reason to single out the Chinese businesses. My vape dealer is a good dude for instance. He breaks the stupid law and imports Juul pods that I can just go to him an buy for a little over the vig, so I don’t have to plan purchases over the net all the time.
    Just like currency markets in shit hole countries. There’s the official unrealistic rate for a currency transaction and there’s the street market. Our grey labor market performs the same function.

  76. Mitch M.

    Okay, so you’re running a company and have two or more choices on how to classify a job, which is already under-girded by the highest fucking minimum wage rate in the world.
    Do you a) choose the highest rate of the choices, or b) choose the lower range one hoping its correct.

    Tell us, Fisky. Which choice would you make.

    It’s not always about job classification. Nor do I buy the complexity bullshit. I’ve read plenty of complex documents, it is just practice. If you can’t stand understand the rules hire someone who can. Most of these wage theft cases are for medium to large enterprises, the idea that those running them are too stupid to understand the legislation is nonsense. They are either too lazy or don’t care enough though most likely adopt the China attitude: if you can cheat and get away with it do it. Does JC think all employers are paragons of integrity and virtue? If so he needs to get out more.

  77. JC

    Actually, you should look to the grey labor market to see where wage rates are actually settling as that gives you a pointer to where the clearing rate is. Shithole countries are always looking sideways to see where (street) currency rates are compared to the official ones.

    Whenever you see a currency report from a shithole, you always get the official rate and the street rate. We should do the same with out labor markets. 🙂

    Tradies are not competing with Chinese businesses so that’s irrelevant. I am talking about the retail sector where foreign businesses in thick of the visa mill are employing (basically) indentured labour. Australian retailers have to compete against this. Yes, I am aware that all businesses will underdeclare their cash flow, but Australian businesses are FAR more subject to employment law and are therefore undercut by competitors.

    This is one of the reasons why wages have gone nowhere for a decade.

    A quick explanation if you don’t mind regarding the AU/USD.

    The last couple of weeks has seen the AU dip substantially against the US but it is now slowly clawing its way back.

    Am I correct in presuming that a) the RBA is buying up (supporting) the AU to prevent it falling through the floor, coupled with b) the US is softening against other currencies because the Fed are into QE?

    We’ve known this for the past 2 weeks, so why are people still dying? Honest question, as I’m perplexed that if it’s so great, the death toll should be very zero now and it isn’t.

    It works if you get it early, before the lungs are damaged. After you’re at that point it is neither here nor there, the virus has done its work, other biological processes are at play.

    So, massive broadbased testing of the community. Treatment for all cases, early. Otherwise no point.

    The roots of this merger are in the iron triangle, a mutually beneficial three-way relationship among Congress, government bureaucrats (the Deep State), and special interests (corporate). Iron triangles get their name because they are incredibly hard to remove once they are set in.

    That triangle has been there as long as humans have grouped themselves into societies requiring some institutional forms.
    It will never be removed. It may be controlled. In a limited way.

    I suspect you are right Confused Old Misfit, but we could attempt to remove the corruption, could we not?

    The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerated the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than the democratic state itself. That in its essence is fascism: ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or any controlling private power.

    I don’t think the RBA is buying Aussie as they would be in support of seeing the currency fall. What they don’t like is seeing is what they refer to as very high levels of volatility.. unruly markets. The RBA mentioned this last week as a word of caution.

    The Aussie reached it’s low in the very early part of last week, just prior to the Fed disclosing further seriously massive liquidity injections. And it was fucking jawdropping massive.We then saw a retreat in the credit spreads that Bern is better at explaining.

    The Aussie is an excellent marker for global liquidity and risk appetite. However, I would tend to say that the aussie could head down further and re-test the lows. That’s the one way we can continue to adjust as our labor markets are so inflexible.

    He does it all the time, sometimes coherently, sometimes not.

    People take all sorts of messages from his incoherence. Try parsing his flow of consciousness in this September 2019 word for word transcript

    uh
    The wall is thirty feet high. We also have eighteen foot wall. We have a combination of thirty feet and eighteen depending on the area depending on the um – uh on the importance.
    uh – Tijuana is right over here. There’re thousands of people over there that had been trying to get in.
    Uh tremendous cooperation from Mexico and – uh the president of Mexico is been fantastic, all of Mexico’s been fantastic. Uh as you know they have twenty seven thousand soldiers, so in addition to the wall we have uh – soldiers now the wall’s still obviously uh a ways to go but we’re building it at a breakneck speed .
    I wanted them to show you the interior of parts of the wall and what’s inside of each individual slat and – uh you’ll see it’s a combination of steel concrete and as one of the folks here said it really is virtually impenetrable. Uh any walls that were put up we can knock down very quickly very easily
    this wall is not something that can be really knocked down, I guess anything can, but this is very tough, and
    uh it goes down six feet. It’s three and four feet wide the concrete you can see it right here it’s exposed
    and I might ask general Semonite to say a few words about it.
    And I’d like to bring them right up look at the inner tube to see what happens cause after the wall is up we pour concrete and concrete goes into the tube and in addition to that we have rebar so if you think you’re gonna cut it with a blowtorch that’s doesn’t work because you hit concrete and if you think you’re gonna
    go through the concrete that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside so it’s a very powerful
    very powerful wall the likes of which probably to this extent has not been uh built before.
    This is an area because it’s so highly trafficked this was one of the most dangerous areas we have a double wall we have a wall on both sides one is eighteen feet that’s your border and the other one is thirty feet
    and everybody if they should be able to make that this is where people are waiting for them uh – It’s very a very powerful situation so general maybe you could take over for a couple of minutes and then I’ll
    take it back you can make a whole range.

    In this case his incoherence killed someone.
    He didn’t intend that, but because he’s the President, people take him at his word.
    That’s why he’s dangerous.
    He needs to be kept on a very short lead….

    Awful man.
    the worst
    Believe me.

    wiki stuff.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Price_Control_Act_of_1942
    The Emergency Price Control Act of 1942 is a United States statute imposing an economic intervention as restrictive measures to control inflationary spiraling and pricing elasticity of goods and services while providing economic efficiency to support the United States national defense and security. The Act of Congress established the Office of Price Administration (OPA) as a federal independent agency being officially created by Franklin D. Roosevelt on April 11, 1941.[1]


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Executive_Order_6102

    Executive Order 6102 is a United States presidential executive order signed on April 5, 1933, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt “forbidding the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates within the continental United States”. The order was made under the authority of the Trading with the Enemy Act of 1917, as amended by the Emergency Banking Act the previous month.

    Rationale
    The stated reason for the order was that hard times had caused “hoarding” of gold, stalling economic growth and making the depression worse.[2][3]

    On April 6, 1933, The New York Times wrote under the headline “Hoarding of Gold”, “The Executive Order issued by the President yesterday amplifies and particularizes his earlier warnings against hoarding. On March 6, taking advantage of a wartime statute that had not been repealed, he issued Presidential Proclamation 2039 that forbade the hoarding ‘of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency’, under penalty of $10,000 and/or up to five to ten years imprisonment.”[4]

    The main rationale behind the order was actually to remove the constraint on the Federal Reserve which prevented it from increasing the money supply during the depression; the Federal Reserve Act (1913) required 40% gold backing of Federal Reserve Notes issued. By the late 1920s, the Federal Reserve had almost hit the limit of allowable credit (in the form of Federal Reserve demand notes) that could be backed by the gold in its possession (see Great Depression).

    Professor vs president

    In an explosive development on Tuesday, Raoult said he’s not participating in Macron’s scientific council anymore, even though he’s not quitting it altogether. Raoult once again insists on massive testing on a national scale to detect suspected cases, and then isolate and treat patients who tested positive. In a nutshell: the South Korean model.

    That’s exactly what is expected from the IHU in Marseille, where hundreds of residents continue to queue up for testing. And that ties in with the conclusions by a top Chinese expert on Covid-19, Zhang Nanshan, who says that treatment with chloroquine phospate had a “positive impact,” with patients testing negative after around four days.

    The key point has been stressed by Raoult: Use chloroquine in very special circumstances, for people tested very early, when the disease is not advanced yet, and only in these cases. He’s not advocating chloroquine for everyone. It’s exactly what the Chinese did, along with their use of Interferon.

    For years, Raoult has been pleading for a drastic revision of health economic models, so the treatments, cure and therapies created mostly during the 20th century, are considered a patrimony in the service of all humanity.“That’s not the case”, he says, “because we abandon medicine that is not profitable, even if it’s effective. That’s why almost no antibiotics are manufactured in the West.”

    On Tuesday, the French Health Ministry officially prohibited the utilization of treatment based on chloroquine recommended by Raoult. In fact the treatment is only allowed for terminal Covid-19 patients, with no other possibility of healing. This cannot but expose the Macron government to more accusations of at least inefficiency – added to the absence of masks, tests, contact tracing and ventilators.

    On Wednesday, commenting on the new government guidelines, Raoult said, “When damage to the lungs is too important, and patients arrive for reanimation, they practically do not harbor viruses in their bodies any more. It’s too late to treat them with chloroquine. Are these the only cases – the very serious cases – that will be treated with chloroquine under the new directive by [French Health Minister] Veran?” If so, he added ironically, “then they will be able to say with scientific certainty that chloroquine does not work.”

    Dr. Fauci when asked if he would use the Hydroxychloroquine cocktail, answered with resounding affirmation. (Simply because he had asked for better clinical evidence previously did not mean he was unaware of what the data was already showing).
    France reversed its previous ban on the drug. When the highly esteemed Dr. Didier Raoult released his first survey’s findings the French medical authorities were resistant. As he released an even larger study, with more patients and improved results from his initial study, the French public health officials had no choice but to give guidance as to its use.
    India’s public health guidance granted affirmation for physicians and front line medical workers to begin taking it as a preventative. This use was the very suggestion I recommended as first steps in this column a week ago. Since our own CDC has cited its prophylactic benefits our doctors and front line medical personnel should be taking it now.
    Given the increased acceptance here in the states not one, but as many as seven different pharmaceutical companies have agreed to mass produce as much as 250 million doses by mid-April. Given Dr. Raoult’s guidance in both of his studies this would give the globe enough inventory to cure 46,000,000 cases. Presently we have not yet hit one million cases worldwide. Notably Bayer, Novartis and Teva Pharm stepped up, pledging to donate several million doses right out of the shoot.
    Doctors began prescribing off-label use and in doing so are replicating the clinical results in remarkable fashion. One doctor in Monroe, New York has treated in excess of 700 patients. As of this writing he’s lost zero patients to death, zero to intubation, and only two to hospitalization. Another doctor in New York City has treated in excess of 100 patients with zero deaths.

    You can expect to see some clinical findings begin to trickle in on Monday through the end of this coming week.

    The clinical results showed the patient going from symptomatic to negative testing on average in 5-6 days. Tuesday will mark one week since the trials began. So watch the “recovery” numbers in New York closely, as there may be a bit of a pop.

    The Democrats, the media, and people who despise the president don’t want these trials to succeed. Three Democrat governors have gone so far as to ban the use of the drug cocktail. And one has even threatened action against doctors who prescribe it. Which is an odd juxtaposition for the days we live in. It appears that the President cares more about their constituents in their states than their own governors do.

    Bottom line: results will begin to filter back. The global medical focus is back on what the drugs can actually do as opposed to who is promoting them. Use of them in the USA is already demonstrating life-saving results, and it appears there will be no inventory problem in prescribing them due to the generosity (not greed) of “big pharma.”

    From The ABC Entitled Class

    Media Diary: Emma Alberici wants talk about economy to end during COVID-19

    NICK TABAKOFF

    “Stop talking about the economy.” That was the instruction last week from Emma Alberici — allegedly the ABC’s chief economics correspondent — to her 125,000 Twitter followers, despite the great fallout from the coronavirus on the economy.

    Alberici reckons the economy is almost incidental in the time of coronavirus. “We live in a community not an economy,” she philosophically tweeted on Wednesday. Clearly the words of a person who still has a job!

    Alberici also preached such laudable principles as choosing “love over hate” and knocking on “your neighbour’s door” — although we’re not sure how that last one would go down with Dr Norman Swan, given his constant refrain of social distancing.

    It would be an understatement to say Alberici’s tweet divided opinion. Supporters of Alberici wholeheartedly agreed the government was “treating this pandemic as an economic problem rather than a life-threatening health problem”. But numerous other respondents dissented, arguing a pandemic was inextricably linked with the economy: “Respectfully, for some people these economic decisions are life and death … You can’t self-isolate if you’re evicted,” one said.

    People around the world are dying alone Stop talking about the economy. We live in a community not an economy. Go knock on your neighbour’s door & ask if they need help Look after eachother

    And learn a lesson from Italy Choose love over hate

    Stay inside. Only go out if you must

    Morgan’s mayhem

    It would be fair to say it has been an eventful couple of weeks for the host of the ABC’s The Business, Elysse Morgan.

    First she had to self-quarantine a fortnight back, when returning to Australia from the coronavirus hotspot of Colorado after a skiing trip.

    But Morgan wasn’t about to let a silly thing like quarantine get in the way of an interview with the country’s most important businessman, Commonwealth Bank CEO Matt Comyn.

    Everything was set up, ready to go for her important interview — including the Skype-connected laptop on a box of wine on her ironing board. She even put on a suit jacket to at least look the part while in her lounge room.

    There was just one problem: she had forgotten her phone that would allow her to hear Comyn while conducting the interview. In her barefooted rush to grab it before the interview started, she clipped a door frame, and broke the fourth toe of her left foot. Back in the ABC control room, Diary is told some fruity language was heard as Morgan hobbled back to her makeshift studio.

    Diary is told she kept the CBA boss in the dark about her broken toe. But she did confide that she was conducting the interview on the top of a box of wine, a line that elicited a laugh from Comyn, even in these trying times.

    If she does not return a positive COVID-19 result, Morgan will triumphantly return to hosting The Business on Tuesday night — hopefully this time wearing shoes for her own safety.

    I don’t trust these NHS numbers.
    The NHS is a death factory.
    Poor UK oldies.
    They fought Hitler & after surviving that they come back to an NHS that’s been trying killing them off since the 70’s.

    I think I understand the Government’s 3 step economic strategy:

    1. Carpet bomb the economy with incendiary bombs
    2. Put out the fire by flooding the economy with printed money
    3. Stand back and marvel at one’s genius.

    China releases one of these pandemics every 5 years or so. Is this now going to be the response every time?

    There’s going to be a 5 min test that will make it’s way into the market in the next short while. Test them all before they’re allowed in. They don’t like it? Fuck’em.

    if this virus came from an animal it would have infected others around it and it would be detectable in the wild.

    note how the chicoms have stopped talking about pangolins, bats and other animal sources, instead trying to pin this bioweapon leak on the US. the evidence is hard to ignore, a cover up, a single source of infection, no animals found with the virus and chicoms blaming other countries.

    the only question is was it an accidental release or deliberate.

    The 5 min test was on a few US websites on the weekend, but have since been removed.
    Point of care results has been terrible in the past due to unreliable test kits.
    There was an Ozzie company almost 20 years ago that said they could do that.
    Called Ambri if I remember correctly.
    No idea who owns them/their IP these days.

    Can you imagine an airport like somewhere in the US where the airport lingo is especially harsh or used to be.

    US citizens this way.
    Non-resident aliens that way.

    Chinese citizens and those who are returning from China.. head towards the testing room
