Approval of Trump’s Coronavirus Response Shoots Up by 12 Points in a Single Week

H/T Western Journal.

President Trump is doing everything he can about the Coronavirus.

A new poll shows a majority of Americans now approve of President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

According to the results of an ABC News/Ipsos poll released Friday, 55 percent of those surveyed said they approved of Trump’s handling of the spread of the coronavirus crisis, while 43 percent said they disapproved.

The numbers have shifted dramatically in just one week as the president and his team have worked around the clock to manage the situation.

Friday’s numbers are a near reversal from a week ago, when the same poll found 54 percent of those surveyed said they disapproved of Trump’s handling of the situation, while just 43 percent approved.

Over the past week, the president and his administration have taken drastic measures to stop the spread of the virus and assure the public that the full resources of the federal government are at work.

Trump has also been highly visible during daily media briefings from the White House.

While a number of Democrats have harshly criticized Trump’s handling of the crisis in apparent attempts to gain political traction, it appears that many Americans have nonetheless have decided Trump’s response has been appropriate — which could explain the 12-point swing in favor of the president.

This week’s poll also surveyed Americans about how the global pandemic has changed their daily lives and working habits.

Almost three-quarters of respondents said the threat of the virus has made them alter plans or schedules, as 72 percent reported postponements and/or cancellations.

Of those reporting disruptions, 57 percent said they had scrapped plans to go out for dinner, while 35 percent have cancelled a vacation

Thirty-three percent reported cancelling plans to attend a religious service and 32 percent said they had changed plans to attend concerts or sporting events.

The health crisis has also altered plans for many to vote, as 11 percent of those surveyed said they had refrained from in-person voting.

A week ago, 73 percent of those surveyed by ABC News/Ipsos reported not cancelling or postponing life events, while that number dropped to 28 percent in this week’s poll.

When asked to describe their current working situation, 41 percent said in the most recent poll that they are not working, while 17 percent reported working from home. Only 36 percent of those surveyed said they are still working from their regular workspace outside of the home.

The threat of the being infected has also increased anxiety among respondents, as 79 percent reported being either very concerned or somewhat concerned about either them or someone they know contracting the virus.

Trump Says ‘No’ National Lockdown, Doesn’t Believe It Will Ever Be Necessary

H/T Flag And Cross.

I hope President Trump keeps his word and not order a national lockdown.

President Trump recently stated during a press conference that a national lockdown would not likely ever be necessary to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, news which should be sweet, sweet music to those of us who love and enjoy our freedom.

Trump updated reporters and officials during a briefing held on Friday. The president said that after both California and New York have implemented strict regulations designed to stop the spread of the virus, he did not see the need for a nation-wide lockdown like the kind we’ve seen in China and Italy.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

Trending: $1200 Checks to Be Mailed to Adults Who Earned Under $75,000, Part of $1 Trillion Stimulus

“I don’t think so,” Trump said when asked if he thought a national lockdown would be needed. “Essentially, you’ve done that in California, you’ve done that in New York. Those are two really hot beds. Those are probably the two hottest of them all in terms of hotspots.

“You go out to the Midwest, you go out to other locations and they are watching it on television but they dont have the same problems,” Trump continued. “So no, we are working with the governors and I don’t think we’ll ever find that necessary.”

Moments before, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top immunologist, praised the residents of California and New York for their sacrifice and said that the strict regulations put in place by the state governments were appropriate and necessary.

This is very good news, which should do wonders in lifting the spirits of those who have been diligent in practicing social distancing as a means of helping to flatten the curve of the spread of the disease.

The two main concerns about the virus are that it could spread to those who are elderly and immunocompromised and that patients with the illness could overload our healthcare system.

That’s why it’s so critical to “flatten the curve.”

Fortunately, it seems as though our efforts to do this are paying off, slowly but surely.

President Trump “No Problem is too Big for God to Handle”

H//T Todd Starnes.com.

President Trump issued a proclamation Saturday night calling for Americans to pray for our nation on Sunday.

“As your President, I ask you to pray for the health and well-being of your fellow Americans and to remember that no problem is too big for God to handle,” the president said.

Following, is the president’s proclamation:

EDITOR’S NOTE: Social media is cracking down on Conservative content. Many of you have complained that you never see our content in your news feeds. There’s only one way to fight back — and that’s by subscribing to my FREE weekly newsletter. Click here.

In our times of greatest need, Americans have always turned to prayer to help guide us through trials and periods of uncertainty.  As we continue to face the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, millions of Americans are unable to gather in their churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship.  But in this time we must not cease asking God for added wisdom, comfort, and strength, and we must especially pray for those who have suffered harm or who have lost loved ones.  I ask you to join me in a day of prayer for all people who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and to pray for God’s healing hand to be placed on the people of our Nation.

As your President, I ask you to pray for the health and well-being of your fellow Americans and to remember that no problem is too big for God to handle.  We should all take to heart the holy words found in 1 Peter 5:7:  “Casting all your care upon him, for he careth for you.”  Let us pray that all those affected by the virus will feel the presence of our Lord’s protection and love during this time.  With God’s help, we will overcome this threat.

On Friday, I declared a national emergency and took other bold actions to help deploy the full power of the Federal Government to assist with efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic.  I now encourage all Americans to pray for those on the front lines of the response, especially our Nation’s outstanding medical professionals and public health officials who are working tirelessly to protect all of us from the coronavirus and treat patients who are infected; all of our courageous first responders, National Guard, and dedicated individuals who are working to ensure the health and safety of our communities; and our Federal, State, and local leaders.  We are confident that He will provide them with the wisdom they need to make difficult decisions and take decisive actions to protect Americans all across the country.  As we come to our Father in prayer, we remember the words found in Psalm 91:  “He is my refuge and my fortress:  my God; in him will I trust.”

As we unite in prayer, we are reminded that there is no burden too heavy for God to lift or for this country to bear with His help.  Luke 1:37 promises that “For with God nothing shall be impossible,” and those words are just as true today as they have ever been.  As one Nation under God, we are greater than the hardships we face, and through prayer and acts of compassion and love, we will rise to this challenge and emerge stronger and more united than ever before.  May God bless each of you, and may God bless the United States of America.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 15, 2020, as a National Day of Prayer for All Americans Affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic and for our National Response Efforts.  I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers for all those affected, including people who have suffered harm or lost loved ones.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this fourteenth day of March, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-fourth.

 

Trump Campaign Hits CNN with Lawsuit for ‘Millions of Dollars’

H/T Western Journal.

I hope President Trump is successful in suing the Communist News Network.

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign filed a libel lawsuit against CNN on Friday for publishing “false and defamatory” statements about the campaign, claiming it may “again” seek aid from Russia in the 2020 election.

The complaint was filed in federal district court in Atlanta, where the network is headquartered, and points to a June 13, 2019 Op-Ed by CNN contributor Larry Nobel, titled “Soliciting dirt on your opponents from a foreign government is a crime. Mueller should have charged Trump campaign officials with it.”

In it, Nobel alleges “(t)he Trump campaign assessed the potential risks and benefits of again seeking Russia’s help in 2020 and has decided to leave that option on the table.”

The author’s byline in the article lists him as “the former general counsel of the Federal Election Commission (1987-2000).”

The Trump campaign complaint states, “It is not entirely surprising that CNN would publish such blatantly false statements about the Campaign. There is extensive evidence that CNN and its writer, Larry Noble, are extremely biased against the Campaign.”

“The news stories at http://www.CNN.com follow the same extremely biased news perspective.”

The Trump campaign responded to Nobel’s specific allegation, saying, “There have been no statements by the Campaign that either constitute or imply an intention by the Campaign to seek or consider seeking Russian assistance in the 2020 election, or to ‘leave that option on the table.’”

According to the complaint, the campaign’s legal counsel sent a written letter to CNN on Feb. 25, 2020, demanding the network “retract and apologize for the aforementioned false and defamatory statements. CNN refused.”

So the lawsuit was filed to “publicly establish the truth, properly inform CNN’s readers and audience (and the rest of the world) of the true facts, and seek appropriate remedies for the harm caused by CNN’s false reporting and failure to retract and apologize for it.”

The complaint says that the damage done to the campaign amounts to “millions of dollars” which will be proven at trial.

Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to the campaign, told Fox News that CNN knowingly published the false statement.

“The complaint alleges CNN was aware of the falsity at the time it published them but did so for the intentional purpose of hurting the campaign while misleading its own readers in the process … the campaign filed this lawsuit against CNN and the preceding suits against The New York Times and The Washington Post to hold the publishers accountable for their reckless false reporting and also to establish the truth.”

“False statements are not protected under the U.S. Constitution; therefore, these suits will have no chilling effect on freedom of the press. If journalists are more accurate in their statements and reporting, that would be a positive development, but not why these suits were filed,” Ellis added.

The standard for a public figure, like Trump, to successfully sue for libel is proof of “actual malice” in knowingly or acting in reckless disregard by publishing false information.

The complaint alleges CNN’s conduct reached that threshold.

The legal team references undercover videos released by Project Veritas last fall as proof of CNN’s malice against Trump

“In the Project Veritas footage, Nick Neville, a Media Coordinator at CNN, admits that CNN’s chief executive, Jeff Zucker, has a personal vendetta against the President,” the document states.

According to Project Veritas, Neville says, “Jeff Zucker — basically president of CNN has a personal vendetta against Trump. Your own biases are gonna be there. They’re going to seep into what you think, they’re gonna seep into what you say.”

He added, “if Jeff Zucker like blatantly hates Trump, and he runs CNN (which he does), it’s not gonna be positive (for you guys)…no I mean it’s not gonna be positive for Trump. He hates him. It’s gonna be negative!”

The complaint also notes in another Project Veritas video, John Bonifield, a Supervising Producer at CNN states his network’s coverage regarding Russia’s alleged interference with the 2016 election was “bulls—” and that the president “is probably right to say … you are witch-hunting me.”

The legal filing states, “CNN’s actions show willful misconduct, malice, fraud, wantonness, oppression and that entire want of care which raises a presumption of conscious indifference to the consequences, and accordingly the Campaign is entitled to an award of punitive damages against CNN.”

Late last month, the Trump campaign sued The New York Times alleging a “systematic pattern of bias” in its coverage.

The lawsuit claims the news organization “knowingly published false and defamatory statements” about Trump claiming he had an “overarching deal” with “Vladimir Putin’s oligarchy” to “help in the campaign against Hillary Clinton.”

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, released last April, found no evidence of coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia to influence the 2016 election.

Democrats Should Be Panicking Over Latest Trump Rally Numbers

H/T Western Journal.

If the DemocRats were not so blinded by partisan hatred they would be panicking over President Trump’s rally numbers.

If Democrats think President Donald Trump will be easy to defeat, they might want to think again.

Trump’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, dropped some numbers about the president’s rally in Phoenix on Wednesday that should be taken into account.

There were 67,516 tickets handed out for the event at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Parscale said on Twitter.

The Trump re-election campaign identified 29,990 voters.

Of those voters, 26 percent sat out the 2016 race, which isn’t good news for those hoping Trump will be defeated in November.

Even worse news for them: Another 18 percent were Democrats.

@parscale

Wow, Arizona! Big Phoenix rally.

✅ 67,516 Tickets

✅ 29,990 Voters Identified (87% from AZ)

✅ 26% Didn’t Vote in 2016

✅ 18% Democrats

Thank You Arizona. Winning Data!

Parscale also revealed numbers from a rally in Las Vegas two days later.

At that rally, 15,079 voters were identified by the Trump campaign.

Nearly a third of them had sat out the 2016 election.

Interestingly, 27 percent were African-American, Latino or otherwise non-white.

And at that rally, just like the one in Phoenix, 18 percent were Democrats

✅ 15,079 Voters Identified (73% from NV)

✅ 32% Didn’t Vote in 2016 (4,743 voters) Wow!

✅ 27% Blacks, Latinos or Non-white

In an Op-Ed for The Western Journal on Tuesday, former GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain noted that Trump’s approval rating among African-Americans was at 34 percent.

“If a Republican could boost his share of the black vote to even 12 percent, it would probably lead to an electoral wipeout that would put 40 states or more in the red category. If he could get 15 percent, we’d be talking about a 1984/Reagan-style romp,” Cain wrote.

This is why the numbers from the president’s recent rallies should have Democrats very, very worried, especially as Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont has an early lead for the Democratic nomination.

MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews has been outspoken in his concern that the self-described socialist would lose to Trump in a landslide.

“I was there in 1972 at the Democratic convention where the people on the left were dancing in glee,” he said Tuesday.

Matthews later pointed out that the Democratic nominee, George McGovern, lost 49 states to Richard Nixon that year.

His comments comparing the Nevada caucuses to the fall of France in 1940 have drawn calls for his resignation.

More likely, though, Matthews is seeing signs that Sanders will be unable to avoid what could be a landslide defeat that could potentially cost Democrats control of the House of Representatives.

Nancy Pelosi: ‘You Gotta Be Ready To Throw A Punch For The Children’

H/T  Godfather Politics.

Sounds like Nancy Pelosi(Delusional-CA)is going to try another batch of impeachment articles.

Nancy Pelosi(Delusional-CA)is going to assure President Trump a landslide victory.

Nancy Pelosi discussed her legislative priority during the National Governors Association’s winter meeting in Washington, D.C. According to her, the children’s future is at stake and legislators have to be able to “take a punch” and “throw a punch” when the time comes.

 

It’s Sunday morning. I know I just came from church – mass but, nonetheless, I’ll say this. You’re in the arena. You gotta be ready to take a punch and you gotta be ready to throw a punch,” Pelosi said, holding up a fist. Before the crowd could react, she held up her finger in clarification. “– for the children,” Nancy Pelosi said.

“For the children, because, really, aren’t we all about the future and how we envision the future? And it’s about the children and their future.”

She said there are “three important issues” that continually face Congress.

“I always say the same thing: our children, our children, our children,” she emphasized. “Their health, their education, the economic security of their families, a clean, safe environment, including gun safety violence protection, in which they can thrive. And a nation, a world at peace in which they can face their fulfillment. There’s plenty of common ground in that.”

Throw a punch for the children? In an era of thugs, bullying, and violence in our schools, that’s a great message to be giving America’s children.

What a freaking joke Nancy Pelosi is! This from the “Catholic” woman that not only approves of but fights for up to the moment of birth murder by abortion. All while spending a fortune by giving our hard-earned tax dollars to Planned Parenthood.

“For The Children” has been @TheDemocrats mantra for as long as I can remember … and I’m older than dirt!
Years & years of PROMISES made (during election cycles) to NEVER FULFILLING said PROMISES!

Newly Released Police Report Details Attack on Trump Supporters, Shows Clear Motive

Just imagine the screeching and wailing from the drive-by media if this had happened to DemocRats.

 

Last weekend a man purposely attempted to run over Trump Victory workers who were registering voters in Jacksonville, Florida. After causing serious property damage, the suspect drove away and was later caught by police.

Jax Sheriff’s Office

A report on the incident is now available and shows the attacker was politically motivated, wanted to “take a stand” and proudly showed officers videos just before running the tent over with his vehicle.

“Upon arrival I made contact with the victims who were volunteering at a Republican tent in the parking lot located near the Petco. They stated that while they were working the listed vehicle began slowly driving towards them. Victim 1 advised that she had been walking up to the driver’s side to talk to the suspect. Victim 2 was standing on the passenger side of the vehicle. They both stated that the vehicle then accelerated towards them and the tent. Both victims had to move out of the way quickly in order to prevent themselves form being struck by the vehicle. The suspect continued to drive and snowed over several chairs, tables and a tent. The suspect then got out of the vehicle, took out his phone, ‘flipped them off’ and drove away,” the report, written by an officer, states.

“The suspect [REDACTED] because ‘someone had to take a stand.’ He stated that he went to the Walmart at 11900 Atlantic Blvd. to get some food and notice the tent set up in the parking lot. He advised that after he got his food and pack of cigarettes he went near the ten and parked. He willingly showed a video to us on his phone that was him talking prior to driving into the tent. He was a few aisles over in the parking lot. The suspect then showed another video to us of him driving towards the tent with the victims standing in front of the tent,” the report continues (bolding is for emphasis).

“The video cuts out prior to him actually striking the tent. He stated that [REDACTED] although the video showed people standing in front of the tent, so he could go run everything over. The suspect was upset that the video ended before ‘the good part’ as he described it. The suspect also advised that he does not like President Trump and that is part of [REDACTED]. He also advised the other reason was because “it’s like someone shitting on your grave,” it says.

Despite this admission from Grimm that he engaged in an act of terrorism against political opponents, the story is getting little attention.
