    These two videos from Guo Wengui are worth viewing. His info may be wrong, but I doubt he is lying. He is basically saying covid-19 is much worse than CCP has reported; and that CCP will use it to direct attention away from their many failures. Release may even have been deliberate.

        No, Google earth uses old images. If Guo is anywhere near right, covid19 is going to have a huge impact on global and US economies. And if China’s CCP can be shown to have or is strongly suspected of having released covid19 deliberately, Lord knows what happens. There will be chaos in China. How will USA and world react? I don’t know.

        What Guo says has not been corroborated and probably won’t be, except by terrible facts if his words are born out. I am sure POTUS and others in his admin are considering possibilities like these. In China, there are rumors that USA released the virus.

        I am not trying to be sensationalist. Just presenting social and economic factors that could have massive global impact. In China, the CCP has had popular acceptance due to economic growth and fear of reprisal for speaking out. If covid19 is as bad as Guo says, CCP will lose all legitimacy.

          Thanks ABN. I just got back from third day of stocking up supplies. I’m in Fl. and some like me prepare for hurricane season so this is what I have done.

          My trip to Sams Club was the usual. I looked at the parking lot and thought OK people are taking this seriously but a quick scan of shopping carts and people aren’t paying a great deal of attention.

          But the markets are sure aware of the supply chain issue. Just think about that for a moment. Nothing has bothered the markets for 3 years of orange man bad but now? Italy has started to limit travel and closed schools (heard on the news). South Korea ( a beautiful country, I was stationed there for a bit while in the Marines) is also in awakened mode as are more countries around the world.

          Just heard on CNBC that the WHO says China has reached the apex of this virus and now is one the down slide. Really?? I prefer to read A2’s posts here on this blog, someone who is in Asia and speaks at least speaks Chinese and has access to news there.

          I believe this is a real pandemic. Doctors in hasmet suits, hastily built hospitals, creametoriams, ect. If I’m wrong well I’m ready for hurricane season.

          My best wishes and prayers for all Treepers and Patriots in America and around the world, good luck to you all.

    How many more passengers that were brought to the U.S. now have the virus?

    Plan to bring coronavirus patients to Alabama scuttled
    Update 4:35 p.m. EST Feb 23: A plan to quarantine some passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship at a Federal Emergency Management Agency center in Alabama was canceled Sunday.

    Passengers who tested positive for the coronavirus but did not have symptoms were going to be taken to the FEMA Center for Domestic Preparedness in Anniston, Alabama, under a plan announced Saturday by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

    However, Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby and Gov. Kay Ivey pushed back.

    “I just got off the phone with the President,” Shelby wrote Sunday on social media. “He told me that his administration will not be sending any victims of the Coronavirus from the Diamond Princess cruise ship to Anniston, Alabama.”

      I’ve argued with friends for the past decade that America is the last hill to die on. One friend, a very successful businessman, told me a few years ago he’d opened an office in another country to give him reason to buy a house there. I asked why and he said he wanted a place to go if America falls. I told him that we are the final place to stand, that if America fails every other free nation on earth will fall after that. He said it would buy him some time and I told him that it wouldn’t be worth it. I said that if we don’t stand for America, the little extra time you may get somewhere else will make you wish you had kept fighting to save America. There is no other place to take a stand.

There won’t be a “World War”, because the other major powers (China, Russia, EU “army”) are already on-board with it all.

    Sawier, an independent who **leans libertarian,** wants to see Trump out of office. But he didn’t think the president’s conduct in regards to Ukraine rose to an impeachable offense. He’d rather have voters decide themselves this November.

      Mark my words: “PDJT has changed the US Presidency forever.” More books will be written about this President than were written about FDR or Lincoln. The Democratic Party will soon find itself becoming irrelevant because it stubbornly refuses to acknowledge a “sea change” when it is confronted by one. (The list of “defunct American political parties” is actually quite a long list … Wiki it.)

    Christian Whiton, Senior Fellow at Center for National Interest, On Ambassador Ric Grenell As DNI
    MON, FEB 24, 2020 | BY HUGH HEWITT
    https://www.hughhewitt.com/christian-whiton-senior-fellow-at-center-for-national-interest-on-ambassador-ric-grenell-as-dni/

    Hugh Hewitt: Now Christian, this came up on Meet the Press yesterday. I’m going to play you an almost three minute clip, because I need your commentary on the exchange I had with Dan Pfeiffer at the end of it. But we’re talking about Ambassador Grenell throughout with Chuck Todd and Dan Pfeiffer of Team Obama, cut number four:

    (Hewitt comments highlighted for brevity)

    Hugh Hewitt: If you want the person who will be most effective in countering the Russian puppetry meme, you put Rick Grenell, who is the most anti-Russian person in there, also the most combatative…
    —————–
    Hugh Hewitt: Oh, he’s very, you know, he came up as a Republican LGBTQ, so he is obviously going to be combative and had to earn his stripes the hard way. But if you want an anti-Russian person to combat the meme that you are pro-Russian, you put Ambassador Grenell in that job.
    —————–
    Dan Pfeiffer … imagine if Barack Obama had fired the career professional in charge of the intelligence director, put in a political operative, one with a history of pushing conspiracy theories at the exact time Russia was trying to interfere in the election to help that candidacy, like that, like Hugh, his head would have exploded.

    Hugh Hewitt: Two words – Ben Rhodes.
    —————–
    Hugh Hewitt: I’m talking about, I’m talking about a guy who has ten years of intel experience by virtue of being a tenured diplomat with the highest clearances in the security. I think that is a complete fabrication of the Beltway establishment that hates Grenell because he is combative, but I think he’s put in there for a reason, which is to be combative and to stop…
    —————–
    Hugh Hewitt: Not a loyalist, to be an anti-Russian face, the most anti-Russian person in the administration.
    —————–
    Hugh Hewitt: All right, so Christian Whiton, I think Ben Rhodes is the complete answer to this. I think those two words shut everything down. Your response?

    Christian Whiton: Yeah, and same with Jim, same with Clapper, and same with Brennan. I mean, the idea that intelligence wasn’t politicized is ludicrous. It has been politicized. What these people hate is the idea that it will become depoliticized….

      • I dismissed most of these so-called “candidates” when I began to compare “what they were saying and promising” to “what a POTUS can actually do.” (Which is: “not much, really.”) Particularly in the case of the Senators, this is even more pointless because all of them do possess powers and privileges today which they would not have in the White House. If they actually had the slightest intention to do anything at all, they’d be doing it … today.

        “Ineffectual candidates, spouting sophistry while waiting for the next opinion poll numbers,” are navigating by weathervane. They cannot hope to defeat a President who is actually doing something every day, and who has a very clear vision and the means to express it.

    The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from the Consulate at Bergen, Norway.
    Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Arctic zone.
    Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes.
    Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm.
    Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and
    stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.
    Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic,
    while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before
    ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

    Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea
    will rise and make most coast cities uninhabitable.

    I must apologize. I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2 , 1922, as reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post 96 years ago. This must have been caused by the Model T Ford’s emissions or possibly from horse and cattle farts.”

    President Trump’s incredible leverage he wielded against China, and his intelligent, genius level use of patience and timing is once again wreaking havoc in the China’s manufacturing industry.

    Think about how he sets things up, it’s brilliant, and we never see anybody else even try it. Basically he comes up with a plan, on hundreds of different fronts. So he has a plan for immigration, a plan for unemployment, a plan for world trade, a plan for defense, a plan for whatever…. 100’s of balls in the air at any time, and then he just waits for other things to interact with his plans and he’s set it up, by plan, so that it always goes his way.

    So China is fighting really hard on this trade thing…. and then Hong Kong starts protesting which screws up China’s plan. Trump stays where he is.

    Now this Virus is unfortunately terrorizing China and much of the world…. which completely screws up China’s manufacturing plan. Trump stays where he is.

    His planning and his setting of the table ensures that when something happens, it benefits him, without direct action FROM him. He’s completely been proactive, he’s got everything set up in such a way that if any crack forms anywhere he wins BIG (and us by association and representation).

      Also interesting about the black vote in North Carolina, in 2016 out of the Democrats who DIDN’T vote, 82% of them were black.

      So it’s hard to break that down, but essentially registered black voters did not show up for Hillary. You know why? … because they tentatively supported President Trump, that’s why.

However, if a major political party does indeed nominate Sanders, even IF he is soundly defeated, his candidacy would give voice to some of the most destructive political ideas the world has seen, and that kind of publicity usually doesn’t put a big nail in the coffin of such ideas.

    Instead, it inflames the passions of the most naive among us, the young as well as the crazies, who wish for chaos. Out of that could come a very young, charismatic person who is capable of carrying on the Sanders’ message to ever growing numbers of those who are now young, who form a formidable voting block in years right around the corner.

    However, I’d like to point out the present danger, the one rearing its head even as I speak. We have three factors meeting one another right now: the coronavirus spread and the threat not only to the health of the world’s population but the threat to the economic well being of all interconnected nations. Second, we have growing fears of the economic ramifications of a Sander’s Presidency. Third, we have many investors who have taken a look at the first two factors and decided it’s time to take their profits and sell. Fourth, we have cable news networks that can’t stop talking about the sell off, which creates more fear in investors.

    The people most hurt by all or any of these are middle class retired people who are either living off distributions from their retirement funds OR counting on living on those in a few years.

    I’d encourage anyone who thinks a Bernie nomination by the Dems is a good strategy to remember that older folks don’t have the time to gain back money lost when the market takes a big tumble. If you’re 45 or 50 and have a lot of years left until retirement, or if you don’t need to count on distributions from your retirement accounts as soon as you do retire, please understand all the millions of your countrymen who don’t HAVE a way of earning back value from their accounts as since they are drawing on those accounts to live.

    Thanks.

      This is exactly what my son told me in 2016. He said that there would be a younger version of Bernie come along and win. It’s the “sheeple factor” mixed with the sheer numbers of these poor sheeple in our population. Currently, I believe the 45+ age group still outnumbers the 18-45 age group.

      I appreciate your sentiment Howard, but to be honest all the democrats are socialists. All of them raised their hands for Medicare 4 all, student loan debt, healthcare and education for illegals. The others are lying or pretending to not be socialist. The real fear by the DNC and media is that they believe because Bernie is honest and not fooling anyone, he will in fact, lose. They ALL have the same policies and desire to destroy the American Way.

      Sorry guys, but the damage was done 4 years ago. When he ran against Hillary, you could still tell the difference. One was socialist, and the other was pretending not to be. Now, you really can’t tell the difference between Bernie’s policies and any of his competitors.

      Maybe it is more accurate to say the damage was done 12 years ago when the Great Fraud was elected and ruled as a socialist. And like the Great Fraud, the propaganda media is going to do everything in its power to find others to lead us to their promised land. Whether openly or yet another Great Fraud.

      So, to chaos, or not to chaos, it matters little.

      Still, don’t switch parties. You will subject yourself to endless Democrat propaganda.

      And start working right now on ways to bring the entire sea of Democrat Dupes back to reality. We are going to need that whether Bernie wins or loses the nomination.

    I don’t believe it is by chance the stock market is reacting to the Coronavirus. Steve Bannon has been doing a series called War Room:Pandemic and is really hyping up everything about it. Although Italy is in serious trouble with the virus.

    It is no accident the stock market does a dive while the President is in India discussing trade. Just more of the same.

    Something for these anti-Trump people to think about. Because the large industrial corporations and pharmaceutical companies relied so much on China for cheap labor they find they are in a position to lose billions. From my perspective this latest event has really emphasized the downside of that philosophy. I think we will see even more companies returning to the U.S.

    Bad news for China and others but great news for the President. Most importantly it is great for us, the people.

    IMO we will have a vaccine in a few weeks. The billionaires will not accept losing so much of their wealth. It always comes down to the money.

            Your response has more truth than many would like to hear. CDC kept nearly ALL funding it was given for the Ebola outbreak and somehow forgot allot of that money was actually meant for distribution to State Level Public Health teams to plan and execute response as well as up grade labs to support more rapid turn around of sample analysis to decrease response time.

            The CDC response centers were even worse when it came to supporting questions and requests for assistance from state level teams.

            The CDC earned that cut in funds. Notice how that reduction in funds has not impacted response to the current crisis and there was even a team ready to assist China, whose support was denied.

So now the CDC is re-working it rather than further dis-repute its reputation. I battled with them in SARS epidemic as they restricted Tamiflu. My kid almost died from fever, cough, malaise after 3 ER visits when PCR was negative for 2. What else would it be?! Finally when white count looked like post cancer chemo visit, we got the medication. I wrote the CDC a hot email about their instructions to ER docs/nurses pointing out specifics and urging immediate re-instructions!

    “Flick that Bic, Ric.

    Let’s examine just the last week of the establishment’s towering achievements in the foreign policy realm. Afghanistan is still a bleeding wound a mere 18.5 years after it started. And the New York Times decided to give a wanted Taliban terrorist access to its opinion page to share enemy propaganda. That’s no surprise. America’s establishment never seems to take America’s side. It’ all about the foreigners’ feelz. One beef about Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell (he’ll stay on in that critical job while acting DNI) is that he gives the euroweenies the sadz by telling them things they don’t want to hear, like “Pay your share of NATO, deadbeats,” and “Stop sucking up to the mullahs, jerks.” Okay, I added the “deadbeats” and “jerks” parts. And it is indicative of our failed establishment’s mindset that the alleged pros are more concerned with pleasing foreigners than protecting American interests.

    Trump has rejected the special rule that holds that of all presidents, only he has no right to an administration composed of supporters. And he refuses to pretend to be impressed by the loser establishment that brought us Iraq, Iran, the unopposed rise of China, Libya, TRUMP RUSSIA, and a zillion other failures, fiascos, and frauds. Time for a winning establishment. And that’s what Trump is building.”

    The changes ban taxpayer-funded clinics in the Title X program from making abortion referrals, a restriction opponents characterize as a “gag rule.” They also prohibit clinics that receive federal money from sharing office space with abortion providers, which critics said would force many Title X providers to find new locations, undergo expensive remodels or shut down — reducing access to the program.

    Judges in all three states blocked them from taking effect, with **Oregon and Washington courts issuing nationwide injunctions.”**
