BECAUSE CORRUPTION IS CORRUPTION, NO MATTER HOW SMALL!
President Trump did the right thing in freezing all funding to the World Health Organization. In the past, maybe this organization tried to help the world, but today, it is a corrupt relic dedicated to covering up China’s mistakes.
Trump announced the hold on U.S. funding for the W.H.O., saying “We spend $500 million a year,” and noted that China only spends $30 million-$40 million annually.
The president said the W.H.O., an agency of the U.N., had participated in “mismanaging and covering up” the spread of the coronavirus around the world.
“The W.H.O. pushed China’s misinformation about the virus, saying it was not communicable, and there was no need for travel bans,” Trump said.
The White House’s Office of Management and Budget has redirected funds from the World Health Organization to charitable groups such as Samaritan’s Purse and the Red Cross, the New York Post reported Thursday.
The US funds the WHO to the tune of 500 million a year, where as China spends 30 million, and reaps all the benefits. How is that fair?
We would rather see the funding go to American charities instead of a globalist, America hating organizations like the WHO.
And while Trump is at it, he should defund the UN and move them out of New York.
Of course, the brain dead celebrities staged a concert on Saturday fundraising for the commies at WHO.
The usual suspects showed up including Paul “Yeah, Yeah Socialism” McCartney, Granny Madonna and Lady “Gag me” Gaga proclaiming WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a “superstar”. How much did China pay her for that?
They ended up raising about 55 million, a drop in the bucket considering the 500 million that was defunded.
Remember China lied, People died, and the WHO covered it up!
Americans are being prescribed significantly more anti-anxiety and anti-depression medication compared to before the coronavirus outbreak began, a sign that the country's restrictions and economic shutdowns, as well as fear over contracting the disease itself, has begun to take its toll on peoples' mental health.
A study released on Friday from Express Scripts, a pharmacy benefit management organization, states that anti-anxiety prescriptions here have skyrocketed over 34 percent since the pandemic arrived in the United States. Antidepressants were up nearly 19 percent, while anti-insomnia drugs jumped almost 15 percent.
The spike at least temporarily reverses half a decade's worth of declining psychotropic use in the country. Anti-anxiety medication use had dropped 12 percent from 2015, while anti-insomnia prescriptions had fallen by a similar amount.
The high numbers reflect the myriad significant concerns faced by millions of Americans over the past several weeks, chief among them a loss of income stemming from the pandemic. A record 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment in less than a month, the spiraling numbers reflecting the rolling economic shutdowns that nearly every American state has enacted to slow the coronavirus's spread.
Though the virus and its symptoms have dominated the news cycle for months, a third of Americans in a recent Just the News Daily Poll say that loss of income tops their list of worries during the outbreak. Boredom, isolation and fear of running out of supplies topped the list. Just 4 percent of respondents said health concerns weighed most heavily on their minds.
Studies have indicated that prescriptions for antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications usually go up during recessions.

President Trump on Saturday evening made several impromptu interruptions of his own coronavirus press conference to underscore the significantly low COVID-19 mortality rates declared by China and Iran, suggesting to reporters that the statistics have been falsified by the two countries.
The president twice stepped in while Coronavirus Task Force Response Coordinator Deborah Birx was speaking to reporters, calling their attention to a slide she had presented on the coronavirus mortality rates of several countries. The slide listed China's rate at 0.33 deaths per 100,000 citizens, with Iran's at 6.06. Both were markedly lower than the United States, France, the U.K., and other countries
"Excuse me, does anybody really believe this number?" the president said at one point, pointing to China's position on the list.
"I put China on there so you could see how basically unrealistic this could be," Birx told reporters, noting that the "highly developed healthcare delivery systems" of numerous European countries are listing fatality rates much higher than China, the origin and for several brutal weeks the epicenter of the pandemic.
Trump shortly thereafter called attention to Iran's reported fatality rate. "You see what's going on here," he told reporters.
U.S. intelligence officials have concluded that China significantly underreported the extent and death rate of the outbreak in that country. The country's government this week revised the number of deaths in Wuhan up by 50 percent, citing a further review of the death toll in that region.
The World Health Organization’s Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus shared random one worded messages on Twitter throughout the day on Wednesday amid increased U.S. scrutiny of his organization.
On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced a halt in funding of the WHO over its alleged mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic.
“They told us when we put on our travel bans, a very strong travel ban, there was no need to do it, don’t do it. They actually fought us,” Trump said at Tuesday’s briefing.
He added, “The WHO’s reliance on China’s disclosures likely caused a 20-fold increase in cases worldwide and it may be much more than that. You look all over the world, tremendous death and economic devastation because those tasked with protecting us by being truthful and transparent refused to do so.”
The WHO leader responded to Trump at his Wednesday briefing saying the WHO ‘regrets’ the decision. In addition to his formal remarks, Dr. Tedros took to Twitter to share random words including “Solidarity.” “Humanity.” “Unity.” “Love.” “Stronger Together!”

As Americans struggle to conform to a new way of life imposed by government restrictions to control the coronavirus pandemic, government officials are struggling just the same to understand the ever conflicting models and data regarding the severity of the outbreak.
There are more questions than answers. And with possibly more than eight weeks of lockdown still ahead for the nation, concerns are mounting that keeping the country locked down for weeks or months to come could lead to an economic depression that will threaten growth, shudder small businesses and leave people jobless for months or years to come.
More importantly, what are we to believe with regard to various coronavirus models? These models – which vary in number – were and are the basis for the shut-downs implemented by State and local governments across the country. In a little more than four weeks, our way of life has been upended and many of the civil liberties we take for granted are now on hold until the wave of the virus subsides, a treatment is found or a cure.
It’s not to say that the deaths from the virus aren’t priority and it’s also difficult to ascertain the tragedy that many Americans have faced or will face as loved ones are lost to this global pandemic.
But understanding what has happened to our nation, comes with first understanding and ascertaining the facts and reality of the virus.
First, the coronavirus model from Imperial College in London, which was used by U.S. epidemiologists to guesstimate that 2.2 million lives in the U.S. would be lost if we failed to implement rules of social distancing, school closures and lockdowns is now found to be unreliable. Later we were told that other models revealed significantly less numbers of deaths, estimating that roughly 100,000 to 200,000 would succumb to the virus in the United States. Most recently, a new coronavirus model suggests that roughly 60,000 would lose their lives to the virus, which is tragic enough but far less than the original model.
