In this bonus episode of Throughline, what we can learn from what happened then and, just as importantly, where the comparison should end.

On Friday’s Mark Levin Show, the Republican Party has become a soft-socialist party. Our civil liberties must be balanced amidst this crisis and the iron fist of government must never outweigh our liberties. Congressman Tom Massie was chastised today for asking Congress to conduct a roll call vote so that constituents would know exactly how their members voted on America's largest spending bill ever. This would have taken one extra day, but this was a problem because House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already sent all of the members home. The Constitution is to be respected and adhered to in order to preserve our liberties and Massie's request was correct and reasonable. Meanwhile, the federal government's coordinator for the Defense Production Act, Peter Navarro, has just ordered General Motors to produce ventilators as their negotiations went awry. Then, China is not a friend of the United States. China was so slow to declare human-to-human contact which is what started this pandemic to begin with. Later, Gov Andrew Cuomo continues to be lauded as a presidential leader despite him ignoring the ICU bed shortage in his state and taking no action on it.

In this episode, I address the hidden pork in the “stimulus” bill which will infuriate you. I also address a real plan going forward which would save our economy and our children’s prosperity. I discuss the media panic merchants and their latest lies and distortions designed to spread hysteria.  News Picks: These companies are hiring during the Wuhan Virus outbreak.  The NY Times desperately tries to spread panic and gets fact-checked into the Phantom Zone. Five things that will likely change after the Wuhan Virus crisis clears.  As President Trump’s poll numbers rise, the media begins the call to silence him.  Demanding Wuhan Virus screenings, Mexican protestors prevent Americans from crossing the border. We spent ourselves into the abyss during the growth years and now, in a crisis, we’re left with no tools in the toolbox.  Copyright Bongino Inc All Rights Reserved.

Across the country, doctors and nurses are being forced to care for an increasing number of COVID patients with dwindling supplies and no clear end to the outbreak in sight. Two emergency-room doctors, Jessica van Voorhees, in New York City, and Sana Jaffri, in Washington State, describe the scope of the crisis as seen from their hospitals. “It would be typical in a twelve-hour shift to intubate one patient who is critically ill, maybe two,” Dr. Voorhees says. “The last shift I worked, I intubated ten patients in twelve hours.” Plus: it’s been just over a month since Donald Trump gave his first public statement about the coronavirus—saying, in essence, that the virus did not pose a substantial threat to the United States. Why did he so dramatically underplay the risks of COVID-19? “With Trump, sometimes the answer is pretty transparent,” Susan B. Glasser, The New Yorker’s Washington correspondent, told David Remnick, “and, in this case, I think the answer is pretty transparent. He didn’t want anything to interrupt his reëlection campaign plan, which entirely hinged on the strength of the U.S. economy.”

Rep. Thomas Massie is a patriot for upholding the Constitution and calling for an actual vote on the coronavirus stimulus bill.

For more information on today’s episode, visit  Background reading: In a presidential debate without an in-person audience earlier this month, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Senator Bernie Sanders clashed over how to handle the coronavirus crisis.

The “Trump, Inc.” podcast has long explored how people have tried to benefit through their proximity to the Oval Office. And we're going to continue digging into that as the Trump administration is tasked with rolling out more than $2 trillion in bailout money.   We spoke to two people this week to help us understand the stakes. “Some policymakers sitting in the Treasury Department or some other government agency have this awesome power to say, ‘You get the money, you go out of business,.’” said Neil Barofsky, who served as the government’s watchdog for the 2008 bank bailout. “One of the most important things we can do is make sure that power is exercised fairly, consistently, and, most importantly, consistent with the policy goals that underlie this extraordinary outpouring of taxpayer money.”  We also spoke with journalist Sarah Chayes, a former NPR correspondent who has reported on corruption and cronyism in countries experiencing economic shock. She said powerful players often “take advantage of adversity and uncertainty to enrich themselves.”  But Chayes also described something else. She coined it “disaster solidarity.” That’s when there’s so much suffering, so much adversity, “that people's tolerance for selfish, hogging, me-first behavior is really low.”  And that’s where you come in. We want your help to dig into the coming bailout. If you know something, please tell us. Sign up for email updates from Trump, Inc. for the latest on WNYC and ProPublica's investigations.

Then Ambassador Susan Rice joins and does not mince words about her assessment of Trump’s performance.
In this episode, I address the backlash brewing over the faulty “modeling” used to shutdown the country’s economy. You’re not going to believe the about-face going on. I also address the trouble hidden inside the “stimulus” bill that passed in the Senate last night.  News Picks: Here are the real costs for you of the “stimulus” plan.  Are the models for the spread of the Wuhan Virus wrong? After the H1N1 epidemic the Obama administration failed to replace the emergency stockpile of masks.  Weekly jobless claims rise dramatically. Joe Biden just can’t stop lying about President Trump’s handling of the Wuhan Virus.  “Woke” Harvard, despite its massive cash-pile endowment, is laying people off?

In this episode, the NPR team breaks down how the coronavirus outbreak has changed the nature of running for office.
On Thursday’s Mark Levin Show, government spending is nothing to brag about or be proud of because the more money we print the less our dollar is worth and this devaluation of our currency causes inflation. What America needs is production, which creates growth and growth creates jobs. We need to help Americans that need help and we need to do it on a case by case basis. We cannot jump headfirst into the worst economic depression we've ever seen. Then, Stephen Moore, former economic adviser to President Trump, calls in to reiterate that combating the virus and getting people back to work simultaneously is paramount. Moore expressed his distaste for issuing $1200 to all Americans as well as the notion that Andrew Cuomo has been effective during this pandemic. Later, we must get even tougher on China. Xi Jingping and his communist regime must not be defended by our media or anyone else. Xi is a brutal, methodical, mass murderer and his Wuhan virus is destroying our economy. Through our colleges and universities China is teaching our children and grandchildren to hate America just like Tokyo Rose did decades ago — today we have an entire army of Tokyo Roses in our media pushing a defense of China and their propaganda on our own people. Meanwhile, socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro has been indicted for narco-terrorism by the U.S Government. Finally, an update on Israeli politics as a unity government has been negotiated.
President Trump says new guidelines will determine which regions are low-risk for the coronavirus. Do we have enough data to determine that accurately? And as the House is set to pass the largest relief package in U.S. history, who's overseeing how that money is spent?

"Is what I’m doing making the world a better place? Yes or no?" When best-selling author Ryan Holiday took a good look in the mirror and answered "no," his whole life changed. Now the author of ten books, including “The Obstacle Is the Way” and his latest, “Stillness Is the Key,” Ryan joins Glenn to discuss becoming the good man you’re striving to be, even in a chaotic world.

Although some have tried to get rid of America’s heroes and legacy, Ryan sees a glimmer of hope in each of us. And stillness, he stresses, is key to finding meaning in the chaos.

On Wednesday's Mark Levin Show, money is important but it’s not going to kill the coronavirus. This stimulus bill has the potential to create lasting problems in our economy. Businesses have been unfairly shut down by the government so the government must re-compensate them. However, incentivizing a workforce that relies on the government for four months rather than the free market comes dangerously close to complete socialism. Then, this is a serious illness despite the fascistic fake news reports designed to malign this program. The media is using the public's fear to cover for Democrats who are exploiting this pandemic. Sneaking in unemployment benefits that cover 100% of someone’s salary for up to 4 months will incentivize more furloughs. Later, spending $6 trillion on various stimulus packages is nothing to brag about and nothing we should want to do except in the most emergent circumstances. Our focus should be on pausing the hiring of foreign employees and work visas. Afterward, many are upset with the stimulus bill because government spending has never been a real solution. That said this bill is to help distressed Americans that were impacted as the result of the government closing down businesses and effectively halting jobs to combat the coronavirus.
Today on the Matt Walsh Show, Joe Biden has been, as the media would say if it was a Republican, 'credibly accused' of sexual assault. The media and the Me Too movement have tried to ignore this.

Also, Five Headlines, including the media celebrating over the fact that the US supposedly has the most coronavirus cases of any country in the world. But there's a big problem with that stat. And today we cancel a police department for trying to turn a 'Black Mirror' plot line into real life. Check out The Cold War: What We Saw, a new podcast written and presented by Bill Whittle at In Part 1 we peel back the layers of mystery cloaking the Terror state run by the Kremlin, and watch as America takes its first small steps onto the stage of world leadership.

Let us know what you think of this format on the @JonahRemnant Twitter, through Jonah at @JonahDispatch, or by email at - we want to know!
Unemployment numbers are in, and they’re WORSE than "not good." Maybe we do need to get back to work. The $2 trillion stimulus bill passed by the Senate is chock-full of everything from payments to artists and the Kennedy Center to “international” relief.

Last week, roughly 400 Israelis got an alert on their cell phone: “You must immediately go into isolation [for 14 days] to protect your relatives and the public.” Data-tracking suggested that they had recently spent time near someone who had tested positive for Covid-19. The next day, hundreds of Israelis set up a convoy of cars to demonstrate outside the Knesset, the Israeli parliament (since mass gatherings are prohibited, to slow the spread of the virus). Protestors said that the surveillance measures were just one of a series of undemocratic actions taken by Benjamin Netanyahu's government in a power grab that uses the coronavirus as a cover. So what happens when a country faces a series of crises on top of a pandemic? Bob spoke with Steve Hendrix, Jerusalem bureau chief for The Washington Post, about what the virus has meant for Israelis in the midst of a politically polarized maelstrom.

In this episode, I address the worst fake news story yet, as the media continues to promote insanity and hysteria. I also address the ridiculous pork Pelosi tried to insert in the Wuhan Virus Bill.  News Picks: Nobel laureate predicts a quicker recovery from the Wuhan Virus pandemic.  The liberal media is still promoting propaganda from China, at your expense. House Democrats admit that they block legislation because they didn’t want to “give Trump a win.”  The hapless Democrats blocked another Wuhan virus relief bill.  Here’s what’s in the Wuhan Virus Bill.  Here’s a list of all the pork in the Wuhan Virus Bill. Democrat lawmaker wants to use this crisis to “restructure” America. Turns out it was President Obama that depleted the national supply of n95 masks.   Be very wary of this new push for the digital dollar. Copyright Bongino Inc All Rights Reserved.
