RAPID RESPONSE...Daily Commentary on News of the Day
This is a new section. It will offer fresh, quick reactions by myself to news and events of the day, day by day, in this rapid-fire world of ours. Of course, as in military campaigns, a rapid response in one direction may occasionally have to be followed by a "strategic withdrawal" in another direction. Charge that to "the fog of war", and to the necessary flexibility any mental or military campaign must maintain to be effective. But the mission will always be the same: common sense, based upon facts and "real politick", supported by a visceral sense of Justice and a commitment to be pro-active. That's all I promise.

"IT AIN'T OVER 'TIL IT'S OVER".
It Can't Be.
The future of this nation, short-term and long-term, depends upon general acceptance of the election results by the public...especially by the 73 million who voted for President Trump.
By comparison, this is of much greater consequence to America than is the COVID-19 Pandemic. And it is especially true when the possible wholesale abuse of computerization is in question...still considered a magical tool for good or for ill by many people.

NOVEMBER 22, 1963: PRESIDENT JOHN F. KENNEDY ASSASSINATED.

I got the news when everyone else did. I was seeing patients in my new medical practice. I stepped onto the outdoor porch and just stood there.
Sad.
In the years since then, observing carefully how government and their people work, I have come to a conclusion:
I believe that President Kennedy was killed by members of our government, many of whom hated and feared him, with or without help from foreign governments. He was not killed by Oswald, who was killed in the same way.
Now read the following article:

MORE ON NEW INSIGHTS ABOUT COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

1) This article is actually worth studying. It's all about the
Central Role of the Immune System - for good and for ill.
"'Breakthrough Finding' Reveals Why Certain COVID Patients Die", by Liz Szabo (Kaiser Health News, November 15, 2020).
It would have been better for the experts to have realized  that in March instead of in July.
2) "How South Korea Avoided A COVID-19 Lockdown", by Molly Walker, MedPage Today, November 15, 2020. They started much earlier than did the Western world. And they have a much more compliant populace. In any case: Good For Them.
3) By contrast, see: "Op-Ed: The Grand Failure Of Managing The COVID Cases", by Aronoff and Milstein ( MedPage Today, November 15, 2020). They decry the lack of Central Planning (aka Socialism) vs the Individual Responsibility and Regionalism that is this country - and that identified this administration's massive and largely effective approach to this moving target. "Never Trumpers" never give up. More about that in another coming RR.
4) And then there is this: "In Health Care, When Is Enough, Enough?", by Rebecca Pieper Esposito, RN (in ctmirror.org, November 19, 2020). Excellent and right on point.

THE ELECTION OF 2020: WHAT JUST HAPPENED (VERY LIKELY) ?

•    JOE BIDEN, AFTER 47 LACK-LUSTER YEARS IN WASHINGTON, AND AFTER THREE TRIES, WON! 
And all he had to do was to disown what positions he had held in the Past.

How did that happen?
There was the automaton Liberal Democrat vote. No thinking here.

There was the Catholic vote, which split 50-50 for Biden and Trump. Shame on the Biden 50% who disowned the one bed-rock principle of Catholicism regarding Abortion.

There was the Black vote, always to be depended upon in their colossal ignorance of their own self-interest. And, as now the most Racist "group" in the country, they probably awakened a long-dormant counter-reaction among non-Blacks. Congratulations.

There was (and is) the Leftist / Anarchist / Socialist vote. That's also what you voted for.

There was the STUPID vote, from the current younger two generations - too WOKE to have awakened to Reality yet.

There was the "Never Trump" and the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" patients, who will very soon get their own ICD - 10 code.

There was the RINO'S and the 400 Billionaires - always self-dealing first and foremost.

BUT THEN THERE WERE AND ARE THE 73 MILLION CITIZENS WHO VOTED FOR PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND FOR REPUBLICAN STATE HOUSES AND AGAINST BIDEN, AGAINST DEMOCRATIC SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES AND FOR DIVIDED GOVERNMENT / COMPROMISE..

And why did they vote for Donald Trump?
If you read Anything in toto, read this article which we will try to post completely here:
"TRUMP REMADE HIS PARTY AND THE WORLD", by William A. Galston (in WSJ November 14-15, 2020, Opinion, pA11).
In just one term (so far), despite marred by the opposition and treachery of so many, President Trump has been TRANSFORMATIONAL for this nation. His legacy is secured even without a second term (now or in 2024).
He has Made America Great Again.

Thank you.

FINALLY SOME GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.

After all, isn't that one of the secrets to a good life: making lemonade out of the inevitable lemons?
With imagination and grit, we all can turn the cynical mantra of some Democrats on its head: "NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE".
Crises, and the tearing changes they bring with them, can be turned to our advantage. It's called   OPPORTUNITY!  This is true for our work life and for our personal life. The tool for that is IMAGINATION.
The poison pills for that are FEAR AND DEPRESSION.

"AVANTI": Forward, always forward.
And "Never Retreat. It is marching to the rear".

Now read: "How Covid-19 Will Change Aging And Retirement", by Anne Tergesen (in WSJ November 16, 2020, Encore, R1). This will help even the newer generations - who will however have to Awaken from their WOKE-NESS.

A Russian Jew, was finally allowed to emigrate to Israel.
At Moscow airport, customs found a Lenin statue in his baggage and asked, "What is this?"
 
The man replied, "What is this? Wrong question comrade. You should have asked : Who is he? This is Comrade Lenin. He laid the foundations of socialism and created the future and prosperity of the Russian people. I am taking it with me as a memory of our dear hero."
 
The Russian customs officer let him go without further inspection.
 
At Tel Aviv airport, the Israeli customs officer also asked our friend, "What is this?"
 
He replied, "What is this? Wrong question, Sir. You should be asking, 'Who is this?' This is Lenin, the bastard who caused me, a Jew,  to leave Russia. I take this statue with me so I can curse him every day."
 
The Israeli customs officer said, "I apologize, Sir, you are cleared to go"
 
Settling into his new house, he put the statue on a table. To celebrate his immigration, he invited his friends and relatives to dinner.
 
One of his friends asked, "Who is this?"
 
He replied, "My dear friend, 'Who is this' is a wrong question. You should have asked, What is this?
 
This is ten pounds of solid gold that I managed to bring with me without paying any customs duty and tax."

REGARDING THE TWO MAIN STORIES NEEDING OUR ATTENTION...

1) THE ELECTION.
There was fraud. Whether there was credible fraud of a magnitude to change the presidential and congressional election results remains to be seen.
But we must wait and see! Over 73 million citizens who voted for President Trump are waiting. As noted in a recent WSJ article, we learned a lot about the concept of "illegitimate" during the last four years from craven Democrats and prostituted media. Whatever the outcome - if decisive and credible - the wait will have been worth it if we can avoid four more years of perceived illegitimacy by 73 million citizens!
Meanwhile, what is clear is that the "Black Community" remained largely monolithic in its support for their Democratic overseers.   What Saps!
See my Rapid Response report of September 11, 2020.
As for the "Latino Vote", that was not monolithic from a people who actually think for themselves. See the recent WSJ article addressing "...do not take Latinos for granted".
Then there are all those "suburban" females who voted for Biden based solely on his Abortion stand. Shame!
Then there are the "CINO" Catholics In Name Only, who voted for Biden despite his anti-Catholic stand on Abortion. What Frauds!
And then there are those "Woke" juveniles, from their teens to their fourties, who have yet to awaken to Life.
Welcome to too many of the Other 73 million.
God Save Us.

2) THE PANDEMIC.
There is yet a great deal to learn about this challenge - not a scourge, and not deserving of Panic - as some would have us think. I have written a great deal about this, much of which can be found in the "Health Alerts" section of my web site as well as in this Rapid Response section.
One of the main lessons relates to its impact on nursing homes, where nearly 40% of all Covid-19 deaths have occurred. Here I recommend two articles that appeared in ctmirror.org:

LET'S TALK ABOUT OUR CURRENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC.
You can follow all of this in Real Time via the Rapid Response reports which I have posted since late Winter of this year.

1) "In The Beginning", December 2019 - March 2020, little was known - except for some Fake News from China, from the World Health Organization, and from craven politicians like Clinton and Biden while President Trump took some wise and decisive actions.
2) Whether from the medical people or from the scientists or from the scientist / politicians, what we began getting were educated guesses, just-plain guesses and "projections". Many turned out to be wrong, facilitated by the traditional worship of too many "experts" at the altar of the "double-blind / cross-over study" to the exclusion of careful observation at the bedside, long clinical experience and just plain common sense.
Meanwhile, President Trump successfully mobilized a massive Public / Private effort, truly a War Effort, to provide needed medical supplies and hospital beds.
3) Of course, by that time the entire matter was already politicized during the most consequential national election year in decades.
4) Quite late, the experts began to "see the light" - highlighted by their "discovery" of the effectiveness of Dexamethasone, aka Adrenocorticosteroids - which I had been yelling / writing about since early April. Check it out.
5) Beginning quite early in this effort, there became obvious a debate between "fighting the virus" at  All Costs  through various forms of isolation and quarantine vs. fighting the virus through common sense methods while avoiding the destruction of our national and Personal economy. That tension continues, partly on valid grounds - but mainly on the nearly total politicization of the issues. What A Shame that the Democrats and the Never Trumpers and the Trump Derangement Syndrome victims thereby have caused tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths - from the disease and from the "treatment".

But now there is new and documented information on which to base personal and State and National decisions.

a) The delayed but now implemented treatment modalities Work, producing a fatality rate (ie. dying From, not dying With Covid-19) of 0.06%!!
b) Active Immunity resulting from having had the infection does produce lasting personal protection.
c) Passive Immunity - resulting antibodies - can be effective as a treatment modality for others.
d) The coming vaccines, coming soon, will be effective - they drawing upon experience derived from vaccine formulation for earlier other Corona viruses.
e) Well over 98% of persons who are infected with the virus remain asymptomatic(!).

NOW HEAR THIS.
Use Common Sense: Social Distancing (6+feet); an effective Mask when that is not possible or when in doubt; effective Hand Washing frequently;
and  AVOID CROWDS!!!  For, given the immaturity and self-centeredness of so many of the recent generations - you will always find some of them in crowds.
The Rest is Politics.

Dick Morris: Trump Can Still Win

SATURDAY, November 7, 2020

PLEASE RE-READ MY RAPID RESPONSE OFFERING DATED NOVEMBER 6 AT  7:41 PM AND ENTITLED: THE 2020 ELECTION - AN INTERIM REPORT.
The reaction and plan of President Trump, quoted here, is absolutely necessary for the political health of this nation...now and in the future...for the reasons I outlined.
Meanwhile, remember the following:
  1. this election season began on the day after Trump was elected in 2016 with unceasing and unfounded attacks by all the dissembling miscreants on the Left and by their prostituted mouthpieces in the main media;
  2. meanwhile, President Trump has accomplished much more in one term than many past Presidents were able to accomplish in two terms;
  3. fully one - half of Americans, nearly 60 million citizens, voted for President Trump, even before the necessary investigations. They are watching closely; and they are not going away.
  4. Without full realization at that time, the prediction I made in 1968 that we would have to survive two coming generations ("horse's ass" "son of horse's ass"), has come to pass.
In any case, whatever happens - particularly including Biden as President - this election experience will have finally have informed and convinced over 60 million people who supported President Trump as to what has been going on during the last four years...and as to what's at stake for them and for the nation. If the legal challenges result in no evidence of fraud and thus a valid result, they will finally pay attention for the next four years. If the legal challenges result in evidence of real fraud and a stolen result without recourse, we may well see a revolt.

STAY TUNED!

The Election: A Divided Nation

RR#2

THE 2020 ELECTION: AN INTERIM REPORT.
That's what this is, because this is certainly not over.

1) This is not only the most important national election in decades for the nation. It is an election wherein the election procedures have been widely altered while having to deal with a historic turnout.
Thus, the opportunities for fraud have multiplied as the will to remove President Trump reached a peak after all of the other frauds over the last four years failed.
2) The perception among all the people that the election results are Fair, especially where the nation has not been so divided since 1860, will be critical to maintaining a peaceful electorate.
3) Thus, court challenges to suspected actions and results are not only desirable - they are vital!
4) As the stakes could not be higher, responsible jurists - including the U.S. Supreme Court - will of course require the usual elements for a suit:
a "case or controversy"; a "prima facie case" of minimal but adequate evidence presented by the plaintiff; thereafter, the burden of proof resting with the plaintiff - unless under proper circumstances the Court transfers the burden of proof to the defendant; and ultimately the decision of the Court, balancing the evidence with the "equities" and with "fundamental fairness".
5) Here, all of the elements are present...including justification for the Court to transfer the burden of proof to the defendant - here regarding the entire electoral procedure and actual implementation - to show that the procedures applied were not negligently or fraudulently applied, so as to assure a Fair result.

This is what we need and should expect. This is what we should Demand.

FOR MY CHRISTIAN READERS, 3 ITEMS

1
Why go to Church?
I think this is fantastic, I just love the guy's answer and the interpretation of the BIBLE. Enjoy and pass on.
If you're spiritually alive, you're going to love this.
If you're spiritually curious, there is still hope!

A Church goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday.
He wrote: "I've gone for 30 years now, and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons, but for the life of me, I can't remember a single one of them. So, I think I'm wasting my time, the preachers and priests are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all".

This started a real controversy in the "Letters to the Editor" column.
Much to the delight of the editor, it went on for weeks until someone wrote this clincher:

"I've been married for 30 years now.  In that time my wife has cooked some 32,000 meals.  But, for the life of me, I cannot recall the entire menu for a single one of those meals.
But I do know this:  They all nourished me and gave me the strength I needed to do my work.  If my wife had not given me these meals, I would be physically dead today.

Likewise, if I had not gone to church for nourishment, I would be spiritually dead today!"
When you are DOWN to nothing, God is UP to something!
Faith sees the invisible, believes the incredible & receives the impossible!
Thank God for our physical and our spiritual nourishment!

IF YOU CANNOT SEE GOD IN ALL, YOU CANNOT SEE GOD AT ALL!
B. I. B L. E.  simply means:  Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth!

An atheist bookie was at the races playing the ponies and losing his shirt.
He noticed a Priest step out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race.  Lo and behold, that horse - a long shot - won the race
Next race, as the horses lined up, the Priest stepped onto the track.
Sure enough, he blessed one of the horses.
The bookie made a beeline for a betting window and placed a small bet on the horse.  Again, even though it was another long shot, the horse won the race.
He collected his winnings and anxiously waited to see which horse the Priest would bless next.  He bet big on it, and it won.
As the races continued the Priest kept blessing horses, and each one ended up winning.
The bookie was elated.  He made a quick dash to the ATM, withdrew all his savings, and waited for the Priest's blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on.
True to his pattern, the Priest stepped onto the track for the last race and blessed the forehead of an old nag that was 100/1. This time the priest blessed the eyes, ears, and hooves of the old nag.  The bookie knew he had a winner and bet every cent he owned on the old nag.
He watched dumbfounded as the old nag pulled up and couldn't even finish the race.  In a state of shock, he went to the track area where the Priest was.
Confronting him, he demanded, 'Father! What happened?   All day long you blessed horses and they all won. Then in the last race, the horse you blessed never even had a chance.  Now, thanks to you, I've lost every cent of my savings!'
The Priest nodded wisely and with sympathy.
"You are not Catholic are you my son?"
"No, I'm an atheist"
"That's the problem", said the Priest,
 "you couldn't tell the difference between a blessing and last rites".

Lord’s Prayer
By a 15-year-old school kid who got an A+ for this entry
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now I sit me down in school
Where praying is against the rule
For this great nation under God
Finds mention of Him very odd
If scripture now the class recites,
It violates the Bill of Rights.
And anytime my head I bow
Becomes a Federal matter now
 
Our hair can be purple, orange or green,
That's no offense; it's a freedom scene.
The law is specific, the law is precise.
Prayers spoken aloud are a serious vice
 
For praying in a public hall
Might offend someone with no faith at all.
In silence alone we must meditate,
God's name is prohibited by the State.
 
We're allowed to cuss and dress like freaks,
And pierce our noses, tongues and cheeks.
They've outlawed guns, but FIRST the Bible.
To quote the Good Book makes me liable.
 
We can elect a pregnant Senior Queen,
And the 'unwed daddy,' our Senior King.
It's 'inappropriate' to teach right from wrong.
We're taught that such 'judgments' do not belong.
 
We can get our condoms and birth controls,
Study witchcraft, vampires and totem poles.
But the Ten Commandments are not allowed,
No word of God must reach this crowd.
 
It's scary here I must confess,
When chaos reigns the school's a mess.
So, Lord, this silent plea I make:
Should I be shot; My soul please take!
 
Amen

THIS WILL TURN OUT TO BE THE MOST FLAGRANT AND IMPORTANT FACT / STORY TO HAVE BEEN SUPPRESSED BY THE MAIN MEDIA.
If so, this should result in the loss or at least mitigation of their First Amendment Rights for at least a year.

These four authoritative articles are too lengthy to reproduce here - but are posted IN TOTO in the "Health Alerts" section of this web site.
THIS IS NOT ONLY FOR MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFIC PERSONNEL,
BUT FOR ALL OF US.

Remember: We all have to live with this challenge for a long time, following common sense instructions. And yes, a few of us will die. But the vast majority of us know that's NOT THE END. I'm very sorry for those who don't - or won't - believe that.
