Shutdown reaches the people-will-die stage

People Will Die is the last-resort of the Democrat Party arguments.

CBS reported on June 26, 2017, "Nancy Pelosi warns 'hundreds of thousands of people will die' if GOP health bill passes."

The Daily Caller reported on July 10, 2018, "'People Will Die': Yale Students, Faculty Outraged Brett Kavanaugh Might End Abortion."

The Guardian reported on September 19, 2018, "'People will die': Obama official's warning as Trump slashes refugee numbers."

And of course, CNBC reported on December 4, 2017, "Economist Larry Summers predicts 10,000 will die per year due to tax reform."

The government shutdown reached that point today at 4:46 AM, when CNBC reported, "The 'doomsday' scenario: Here's what happens if the shutdown drags on. Economists warn that a catastrophe is in the making if the partial government closure continues for weeks or months."

The predictions are worthy of a global warmist. They include:

  • 38 million low-income Americans lose food stamps
  • 6 million face an uncertain timetable for collecting tax refunds
  • 2 million without rental assistance and facing possible eviction
  • 800,000 paycheck-less federal employees plunged into dire financial straits
  • Shuttered parks and museums while overstressed airports cause tourism to tank
  • Federal court system slows to a crawl
  • Disaster relief money doesn't get to storm-ravaged areas
  • Lapsed FDA and EPA inspections lead to dangerous outbreaks
  • Private companies looking to go public are stuck in limbo
  • Stock market plummets

And as always, if this keeps up, hair will grow on the palms of your hands.

CNBC reported on March 16, 2016, "If Trump wins, stocks will crash 50%: Wedbush pro."

May the people-will-die stage of this drama mark its end with a Democrat agreement to fund the wall because President Trump will settle for nothing less.

UPDATE: Harriet Baldwin told me Rush Limbaugh took the time to read this post on the air. I am flattered, and also glad because I believe this post encourages people to hang on in there.


  1. That "people will die" bit if abortion is stopped is hilarious. What do those idiots think happens whenever an abortion is committed?

    1. Over 900,000 a year in the US alone. I daresay there was never a grand total of 900,000 deaths from back alley abortions in the history of the country!

  2. An 1800 mile border (mixture of wall, fence, and natural topography) can be clearly seen from space.

    Any US President since 9-11 has had bipartisan support to secure our national borders. Heck, it was supported on and off before.

  3. Federal courts will slow to a crawl? More like: "Federal courts will continue to crawl because scumbag lawyers still work by the hour."

  4. Of course people will die. Everyone does. One per customer - no pushing, please - there's enough for everyone.

    Damn fools.

  5. People will die if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies!!!

  6. This sounds a little fishy. Who is there left to kill after the the tax cuts, redoing NAFTA, pulling out of Paris, ditching Net Neutrality, ending TPP, ending ISIS and working to denuke the Korean peninsula each already killed everyone?

  7. A good time to pursue mortuary science.

  8. One of the side benefits of every government shutdown is we all get reminded about how many people depend on the government, a number the government always wants to be higher.

  9. At this point we should be concerned that every one is really dead, and all we are seeing is zombies.

  10. Lots of good people have been killed because you need your meth.

  11. The projection is strong in this one.

  12. When I hear this now, I ask, “WHICH people?”

  13. Yeah Don

  14. Don -- The report is true: Rush Limbaugh talking about your entry right now. Well done and congratulations!
