Nearly 720,000 people in the U.S. have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began. During the time Trump was President, 367,000 people died from Covid19. Since February 1, there have been approximately 353,000 deaths from the pandemic. The last month Trump was in office was January 2021 and the USA had 104,265 deaths from Covid19 that month.

"In September 2021 alone, approximately 49,000 deaths likely would have been averted if people had chosen to get vaccinated against COVID-19."

We will continue to have large number of deaths, unless more people get vaccinated.

"Either the vaccines work, or they don’t. Tell us which." They work!

Carlos Ponce

Dr. Peter McCullough, a clinical cardiologist and Professor of Medicine, Texas A & M University College of Medicine, Dallas Campus, believes that 85% of the COVID deaths could have been avoided had government empowered and informed doctors and the public on proven early outpatient and even prophylactic treatment of the virus. And he's not the only one.

Carlos Ponce

"As of Oct. 4, the CDC has received reports of 6,617 breakthrough COVID-19 deaths among fully vaccinated Americans."

Jim Forsythe

Carlos your point is well taken, .If you want the best chance of not dying from Covid19,, get vaccinated.

720,000 total Covid19 deaths minus 6,617 breakthrough COVID-19 deaths equals 713,38 unvacated people that died..

Since the start of people being vaccinated for Covid19 over 300,000 have died from Covid19.

As more people are getting vaccinated the deaths should go down, but we are now seeing a increase in deaths each month, among the unvaccinated.

Gary Miller

Jim > Also an increase of fully vaxed breakthrough cases and deaths. All the vaccines seem to have a short term protection while natural immunity apears to be longer lasting. People with natural immunity are being forced to be vaxed OR else when they should be first in line for acceptance.

Carlos Ponce

If you want the best chance of not dying from the Chinese Virus consult your doctor.

He or she will recommend you:

maintain proper weight, eat nutritious meals,

supplement with vitamins like D3, etc. if needed

exercise daily with physical activity depending on your age, general health

AND if you have a pre-exising medical condition placing you at the high risk category get the vaccine.

We are now seeing a increase in deaths each month, among the vaccinated.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, all the things you listed, my Doctor has told me for years. Part of my yearly physical is a blood test that indicated that I have low or high levels of different vitamins and such.

If your Doctor has not talked to about all that is listed, before Covid19, you may want to get a new Doctor. Also my Doctor goes over what vacancies that I will need for the upcoming year, and when I need to get them.

As far as a Doctor recommending the Covid19 vaccine for the under 40 people, all my boys Doctors have done so. All the Doctors that my family members see, have also said it is important to get vaccinated for Covid19.

If you have not done so, now is the time to get the flu shot..

George Laiacona

Like I said before, the TV celebrity that so many naive Americans are still infatuated with had the power January of 2020 to prevent the Chinese Virus from entering America. He and his Republican Party chose not to do so because it would have created an economic situation that would make the Republicans look bad in the eyes of the voters. So instead we have the deaths of thousands of Americans and an economic situation that will take years to recover from. The Biden administration has been stuck with a situation that could have been prevented by the TV celebrity administration. Republicans propaganda will continue to play it down and blame it on the Democrats. Go back to the year 1918 and you will see that we are repeating history.

Carlos Ponce

"had the power January of 2020 to prevent the Chinese Virus from entering America"

No,George, that is NOT true.

Carlos Ponce

George Laiacon, it's time for some FACTS:

The Chinese Virus was in the United States before China reported deaths in late December 2019. No one was aware of the virus. That's why it spread to EVERY country in the world. So you are stating EVERY leader in the world could have prevented the virus that no one knew about (except the Chinese) from entering his or her country. That's not true.

"Our findings identified SARS-CoV-2 infections weeks before the first recognized cases in 5 US states {Illinois, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Mississippi].

https://academic.oup.com/cid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/cid/ciab519/6294073

"A study of blood samples taken by the National Institutes of Health from January to March of 2020 found COVID-19 antibodies in two people from Illinois and Massachusetts who gave blood samples on Jan. 7 and Jan. 8.

Given that the incubation period for the coronavirus can be up to two weeks, the results strongly suggest that the coronavirus was in the United States by early 2019. That’s earlier than the first confirmed case of COVID-19, which occurred on Jan. 19, 2020, according to the New England Journal of Medicine."

David Hardee

Are you ever going to comment without displaying your unreasonable bigotry towards Trump. Nothing but hypothetical bluster is in your opinions. Carlos has produced data that should make a reasonable impression.

Applaud Biden's administration since your vote was successful. Start praising Biden's accomplishment and stop excusing what you consider failures on Trump.

"See you arond" this thread with some dignified comments , hopefully.

Charles Douglas

Mr. Hardee> That was a good Idea about Biden's accomplishments! I feel bad because I simply did not think to do that! Well, "Imma" change that starting now: I am going to list Joe China's accomplishments: 1) .........( thinking ) ......1) .........( still thinking ) .........1). I ahhhhh....I ahhhhhh ...1) Let me seeeeeee 1). Ahhh. I have to get back ..cause it has got be something he, OKAY WAIT, KAMALA,....I will list her accomplishment: 1) Obama likes her, 2). ............2) ....Ahhhhhhh..Rahhhh...2).........?? Let's see nowwwwww .....ahhhh I will get back.......wait! wait! Let me switch and list what they have done for minorities! Nowwwwww I'll list something now I will bet! 1) They opened the South Border to the world's poor, the world's criminals, terrorist cells who want to bomb, shoot, and kill Americans, and millions of illegals who can just walk across the border & get lost in our country and live on free government subsidies,...paid for by hard working taxpayers! There ...I knew If I kept trying I would succeed![wink]

Ted Gillis

And the cherry picking continues.

George Laiacona

It only stands to reason that if your data comes from Fox News then we already know it is biased.

George Laiacona

Go back to the 80s when the movie star collected all his fans and made them believe that he was the best candidate for the White House. As a result his Republican policy did absolutely nothing for the lower classes of Americans. His Trickle down legislation aided only the very rich upper classes. He did everything he could to squash unions. The same type of legislation repeated itself with the TV celebrity bragging that he was the best choice for the White House. Again he and the Republicans did absolutely nothing for the lower working class Americans. Then to repeat the movie stars tactics he and the Republicans passed legislation that was only a value to the rich upper classes. Then he provoked his naive, uneducated Republican traitors to attack our democracy. Now we are supposed to say his actions are OK. OK for the rich but not for the rest of the Americans. The only answer the Republicans have is propaganda.

David Hardee

Thanks George for the response - I want to make certain I understand so here is what I think you intended.

You used no names but your referring to a 80’s movie star I believe means Reagan, correct?

If I am right then the rest of the recitation is intended to describe Reagan’s action you deemed reprehensible - Am I right?

And the point is that you associate Trump as a clone of Reagan and Trumps action are similar and just as reprehensible.

Have I got this far correctly?

These are my understanding and if correct are definitely a reasonable biases for your opinions.

If I made mistakes please state so in a response.

David

David Hardee

Also you have an aversion to the entire Republican Party - is that right George"

Carlos Ponce

Under President Trump take home pay rose. Biden says wages have risen since January but they have not kept up with inflation, resulting in a net loss.

Jim Forsythe

You say what ever you want, but putting it in one hand while taking it out of the other, is nothing but slight of hand. We went from a national debt of $19,573,444,713,936.79 to $26,945,391,194,615.15 during the Trump years. One may have had a little increase in their pocket, but our USA credit card has increase at the same time to take away any increase and then some.

Trump bragged he was the King of debt, and he proved he was.

"People's incomes are indeed rising, but the increase is more modest than Trump suggests. On top of that, Mr. Trump's tariffs on Chinese imports are adding $800 in annual costs for each American household, according to the Federal Reserve of New York. That's about what the typical household got in tax breaks under the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. In effect, the tariffs wiped out the modest tax breaks many families received."

"Taxes will go up for many Americans starting in 2021. The tax hike was planned all the way back in when President Donald Trump passed the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which lowered taxes for most Americans at the time. However, that temporary tax policy counted on the automatic increases for this year taxes."

Trump again used slight of hand to decrease taxes when he was in office and to increase taxes after he is out of office.

Carlos Ponce

"We went from a national debt of $19,573,444,713,936.79 to $26,945,391,194,615.15 during the Trump years.

If Republicans had both houses during the ENTIRE TIME SPAN, you would have a point. Since they did not, you're just braying in the wind.

Jim Forsythe

Trump had the power to veto any spending bill. Trump chose not to, so he is responsible. Remember when the Government was shut down because Trump refused to go along.

A President can not take credit only the good and not expect to be held responsible for the not so good.

If you want Trump not to responsible for the DEPT then he can not take credit for the tax decrease, because the House and Senate had a part in its passing.

Did the DEBT go up during Trumps term, yes it did.

Carlos Ponce

"Trump had the power to veto any spending bill." If he had, Jim Fosrsythe would be vetching about that.

Carlos Ponce

Correction:

If he had, Jim Fosrsythe would be kvetching about that.

Jim Forsythe

Carlos, a true leader is not worried about what people say. What is true, Trump did not use the power he had.

He has enough votes, so his veto would not have been overturned, but he chose to go meekly into the night.

He had no one but himself to blame, if a bill crossed his desk and he did not like it, but still put his John Hancock on it.

What did Trump do, he chose to sign it, because he was afraid of what someone would say.

Going along with what the House and Senate passed, only because he was afraid, shows a lack of leadership.

Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues like this.

Carlos Ponce

Jim has departed from reality.

Jim Forsythe

Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues like this.

Carlos Ponce

Yes, Jim has departed reality.

Jim Forsythe

Realty is that Trump lost.

Reality is that Trump refused to veto a bill he did not support, because he was afraid that someone may say bad words about him.

Realty is that Trump was not equipped to handle the job.

Reality is Trump is a ex President .

Reality is that Carlos did not pay Bailey, for the bet that Carlos lost.

Reality is that Trump is tearing the GOP into two pieces, because if they do not support Trump, you are a RINO.

Reality is if Trump runs again, the Democratic candidate will receive a lot more than 80,000,000 votes, because more people will vote against Trump if he runs again..

Reality is that the national debt went from $19,573,444,713,936.79 to $26,945,391,194,615.15 during the Trump years.

David Hardee

Jim you are the most difficult to rebut because you interweave in your comments a potpourri of facts with your perceptions. Your statement - I quote here, "Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues like this." refers to what ISSUE? Maybe you assume we have learned from the thread there is a well established single ISSUE you announced to us. That issue escapes me. Your "not ready for the big stage" covers a lot of issues and I will attempt to make a “big stage” response with specifics. The "big stage" refers to being president, right?

So where a president's acts do affect the citizenry in general are the most significant. Is that agreeable Jim? Executive orders that make the president direct controlled administrators produce his directive (no congressional approval needed and the act can be challenge in courts for adjudication are what I am going to present here,

Let start with Trumps control over the State department. His administrator Pompeo was essentially America first. Now these are some of the effects. NATO was embarrassed into paying there dues. The State department constructed a position that quieten the North Korean and the Iranian blustering and ther were no significant money paid as bribes to accomplish that result. State opened an Embassy in Jerusalem and the Islamic world seemed to tolerate is fairly well. Afghanistan was put in a position by State and DOD that resulted in no american was killed and the Afghani army was doing the bulk of the at least stalmating the Taliban. State negotiated a compromise that reduced the belligerence and a few Islamic State actually recognize Israel's existence.

Lets move to DOD. The entire Budget was raised and the dilapidated conditions were corrected. Several Generals were upset and actually found Trump intrusive and publicly were less than respectful.develope

Department of Energy was able to perform acts that Made the USA masters of there own fate and displace the Saudi's as the controller of petroleum prices.

now let move to that scourge of our society - Health, Education and Welfare (the great society) the realm of CIVIL RIGHTS which has irritated this country for the last 58 years. Since the formation of th “Great Society” our country has been plagued with perception that the lingering effect of slavery thorough the entire 200 year since the Emancipation Proclamation the USA has not permitted or created a process that will allow or move the black americans from minority status to equity with the white majority. And tblack leaders actually believe and promote the perception there is a conspiring to keep the minority depressed. No president, even a black president, has assuage that segment of the population. The undeniable fact that under Trump the black wages rose and the unemployment rate dropped to a historic low was able to achieve a modicum of appeasement. Ergo Trump does not deserve recrimination as president for that social unrest.

As to Health we can attribute to Trump (wether the timing was to soon or to late) - shutting down travel from the any foriegn country and creating the very expensive Warp Speed that made government and private sector cooperate and deliver a vaccine. Expedite the production of ventilators. Deliver army services to any local that requested the - recall the hospital ship to NY - and criticized China for being the source of and late to notify the world of the danger that originated there. Faucci even credited Trup with saving millions of lives.

Trump did claim he would reduce the prices of drugs for our citizens to be as low as any other countries citizens paid. He did not complete thar due to termination by your and the other that put Biden in office which Biden has yet to address that issue.

Now it is the impeachments of Trump. For the entire term of Trumps presidency the Congress has portrayed Tump as an interloper because He had colluded with foriegn powers. Claim that Trump repeatedly pushed for Ukrainian President Volodymr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, Claim that Trump colluded with Russia and Trump was a liar, etc. all folded into a constant recitation in the media. These and the investigation by the Democratic controlled congress that was joined by some what are called RINO members produced impeachments. There is no dispute that happened. Seems the facts that lead to the indictment (charges or impeachments) have become not so credible as further investigative report are becoming public. But what has been done is the facts at this time, so be it. Trump has been indicted/impeached and acquitted by the senate. And acquittal is a lack of guilt. Not guilty!

It seems that to be fair we should at least commit to expressing our opinions based on what evidence we have stated that support our conclusion.

I submit - that from evaluating Trump’s act(s) he has been good for the citizenry in general.

Now Big Jim would you confine yourself to those act you find as detrimental and give some of the supporting evidence in a response.

Please do not make Trumps personality a reason. If you don’t like him that i not a conclusion based on evidence but is an emotional (irrational) conclusion.

Thanks, David.

Jim Forsythe

David, read all my post above and you will see a trend, DEBT

Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues like this, debt.

national debt went from $19,573,444,713,936.79 to $26,945,391,194,615.15 during the Trump years.

The original statement,

(Trump) Going along with what the House and Senate passed, only because he was afraid, shows a lack of leadership. Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues like this. This was referring to the national DEBT.

If a President does not like a bill, they can VETO it. Carlos was trying to blame the Democrats for the passing of the budget when all Trump had to do was VETO it.

David Hardee

Jim, No argument with your evidence of the debt increase and the go along of Trump on passage of the increase. Like you and most of use RESPONSIBLE financially concerned citizens that debt is frightening. I did not include debt because it was not Trumps stand alone directive and agree he had a veto strike option he did not use to cause hopefully removable of some of the PORK and non-essential items. I believe (hypothetical) that the pragmatic determination was - highly probable veto over-ride by congressional 2/3 option and also those items of most import (again hypothetical supposing on my part) like build up of the military and the tax initiatives would be jeopardized. I, you and our like minded financially responsible are recognizing the hammer over our heads will fall eventually.

But Jim, can you let us know any other recriminations that you feel were not in the best interest of US (USA in general. Or if this, financial integrity issue is the single most relevant issue. And whether we can agree on the acts I detailed as being at least good intent efforts by Trump?

Thanks for your illuminating response.

David

Jim Forsythe

David , one issue that no President has handled correctly is immigration.

What they have done wrong is not setting down with both parties and coming up with one policy that will work for many years to come.

Until this happens, we will continue to have problems. It is all immigration that needs to be addressed.

Carlos Ponce

"one issue that no President has handled correctly is immigration"

Whose opinion on the "border issue" is valued? THE BORDER AGENTS!!!!!!!

And they say President Trump handled it correctly.

But leave it to Jim NOT to trust the experts.[whistling]

Jim Forsythe

Just as I said David , one issue that no President has handled correctly is immigration.

Carlos Ponce

So Jim disregards input from the experts. How very Progressive of you.

David Hardee

Jim - Note that in the opening of our Tet a Tet you would be difficult. So to you "just as I said I say I am squeezing out of you some of your "big stage" items you decided demonstrated "Trump was not ready for."

Well my fiend I gave a detailed analysis of the most obvious reasons Trump was in cahoots with the Democratic controlled congress. Instead of being courteous and responding with a retort, agree or any remark you move on with your incessant tangents to the discussion.

So Jim in summary Here are the answers to your last two inquires. The debt increase - under Trump served all Americans - with out partiality to any segment of the moaning grovelers for more government hand out.

That "under Trump served all Americans" best also applies to Trumps handling his Immigration executive orders which stabilized the boarder, and gave those poor souls that Biden and Obama had incited to march and become the victims of the coyotes, drug cartels and the imbeciles in our government to portray it as benevolence, to stay home. As we see, Jim, that the vote you cast for Obama and Biden, was equivalent to pulling the handle on a commode and flushing "American first". Evidently, Jim, you relegate American's as the providers of the planets population, Are you, Jim putting yourself and family at the pleasure of any that want - if NOT you are an American first advocate and chargeable and quilty with every thing you charge Trumps efforts to make America first with.

If you can't understand that the open borders is a disaster for every American citizen and every illegal making the march and sucking out of those countries not only the cowards that abandon instead of staying and fighting to better the condition there you, Jim, are now relegated to "non compos metis.", deservedly.

Jim Forsythe

David I'm guessing you were tying to say "non compos mentis". Have I every said anything along those lines about you or anyone else on this forum?

As far as Immigration , I was not talking about Trump or Biden, but all Presidents. If you want a outline of my take on Immigration, I will provide it, but I have posted it before.

I misunderstood you, and thought you wanted to talk about what the USA needs to change. If all you want is my take on Trump, just read some of my post. He is not the person we need at this time.

The USA is more divided now than anytime in our life times, and Trump is a big reason for it. When you have a President call leaders from other parts of the world, names, we have a problem.

We have a Republican party, that if you are a member and say something against Trump, you are a RINO. This thinking about members of one's party, may lead to the Republicans becoming just a memory.

Just because you do not like Biden, does not make you a bad person.

America first has been used by many people and groups. The America First Committee, Armand Cucciniello, President Woodrow Wilson, Republican Senator Warren G. Harding and Pat Buchanan just to name a few. One does not have to agree with Trumps views to place America first.

Please do not say that I'm un American, as one of the things that American great, is that one does not have to agree with others to place America first.

David Hardee

Jim,, this thread started on the statement you made below note the date

Jim Forsythe Oct 29, 2021 11:15 pm

Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues like this.

Since then we have been working on the "TRUMP not ready for the big stage" statement. I presented that the criteria to judge Trump is his ACTS. Those I illustrated for you you never agreed or disagreed with my statement. Instead, you want to add another item for discussion. That is creating a diversion from and a tangent to any progress on the still pending items. That is not a building for any conclusion and is a waste and indication of a wandering mind unable to concentrate on the issue at hand.

The "just as I said" is another indication that you are overly presumptive that You had brought IMMIGRATION previously in this thread, which you had not.

Now you want to add that the division in society is primarily because of Trump. You present nothing to establish your points.

You have received a generous amount of respect and effort from me. As I said in the beginning, because of your peculiar disorganization in comments you would be difficult . Being an optimist I entered into this willingly, so I bear the fault. Until you, Jim , present a comment with a declaration that also gives substantial support for your conclusion expect no rejoiner in the future - a pure opinion is not worthy of a good faith efforrt to respond.

All that contributes to these .thread deserve respect and we should be grateful that they are concerned citizens, and not apathetic or ignorant of the needs of our America.

Keep on!

Jim Forsythe

David, my example is of why Trump was not ready for the big stage is as follows. This is what I posted.

"He had no one but himself to blame, if a bill crossed his desk and he did not like it, but still put his John Hancock on it. What did Trump do, he chose to sign it, because he was afraid of what someone would say. Going along with what the House and Senate passed, only because he was afraid, shows a lack of leadership. Trump was not ready for the big stage, and he demonstrated it in his handling of issues. like this." Trump wanted to complain about the budget, but he still signed the bill. He did not like it he should have veto it as many Presidents have done with bills they disagreed with. Also his actions regarding his losing and demanding that he won, is not what a President does.

Things Trump did while President.

Looked at a solar eclipse without eye protection — after everyone was repeatedly told not to look at the eclipse without eye protection.

The time he couldn't admit he was wrong when he tweeted that Hurricane Dorian was going to hit Alabama, and so he drew on a weather map with a Sharpie to make it seem like he was right.

The time he threw paper towels at people in Puerto Rico who had just endured Hurricane Maria.

The time he asked Canada's prime minister, Justin Trudeau, "Didn't you guys burn down the White House?"

More things Trump said or did.

Windmills cause ear cancer.

He wanted to buy Greenland.

And when Trump said this, "And I think that the people of Puerto Rico are very grateful to Donald Trump for what we’ve done for them,” Trump said at a May 8 rally in Panama City, Florida. Not 10 seconds later, he then said, “That’s Puerto Rico, and they don’t like me.”

David, when I said I had posted about Immigration before I was referring to times in the past, I had posted about it. The reason I asked because if you had read it before I see no need of posting again, as it take many line to post. As I said ,I would be happy to post it, but I would have not offered if I had post this time. All I would have said. go to the post above instead of repost in the same thread.

"As far as Immigration , I was not talking about Trump or Biden, but all Presidents. If you want a outline of my take on Immigration, I will provide it, but I have posted it before."

Unless you want me to post about Immigration I'm through posting on this subject.

David Hardee

Thanks, I had not read any posting of yours to use them as references in this thread. That searching and referencing other threads is not a process I use. That answers one of the problems we had with assuming I did.

Your Trump going along with the House and Senate I discussed at length - to summarize what I conclude is - Trump was against a dominated Democratic congress. That House was processing impeachment - any veto of Trumps would not necessarily be over rode but it was a good probability that the RINO’s would join and get the ⅔ necessary - I consider his act as pragmatic not fear or leadership problem.

As to those items that are demonstration of irascibility I have also found them inappropriate but that is a personality trait and as all of us (irrational at times humans) those events did not create for me the “NOT READY” stigma it did for many.

As to the border under Trump - I f

ull appreciated all the efforts to sto the invasion. If you read my comment previously on this thread you certainly can understand the reasons that situation is a travesty to us and those wishing to cross our border illegally. Whethe we have ever had a good iigration policy (in total) I would agree because our legislature (law writers) is full of lawyers who are by the process of law school totally impractical in construction a precision law that can withstand the adjudication process - and the adjudication process make lawyers happy and rich.

As to you litany “Things Trump did while President.” Some like looking into the sun and throwing towels I never heard or not disturb enough to be affected. Those you list are not ACTS that had adverse effect on the GENERAL citizenry of the USA. So I would never include them in judging what Trump performance was.

All the other Trump ACTS I listed in my previous comments in this thread (actually addressed to you) you gave no response on. Why would you ignore the Vaccine, The border, the middle east, NATO paying up, Afghan no Americans harmed and the Taliban stalemated, Iran not saber rattling, North Korea quiet, If you want to condemn Trump as being cozy with some of our adversaries as wrong well I would do the same to make a strategy of successful negotiations . Read my STATE DEPARTMENT - Pompeo - successes and understand that Trump is a skilled negotiator and ready in this “BIG STAGE.”

Stay the course, Jim, we need more like you that want USA to be the best hope of humanity.
