      The ramifications FROM this virus are just beginning to manifest, its still early on.

      It may well sink the “Neo-Feudalism” also called Globalism, like the black plaugue sunk Feudalism.

      In so many ways, it tears at the foundations of “Globalism”.

      And, with the EU being a microcosm example of what Globalism purports to want to implement Worldwide, it is already inflaming Nationalist passions in Italy and France, that can’t be denied.

      From open borders, to OBOR, to trade with Chicoms, it seems the virus is an arrow, aimed at the heart of Globalism.

      Just as in health terms, the virus kills or gravely injures those who are already in compromised health, it is tearing apart economic and government systems that are already in seriously compromised ‘health’.

      We can’t see it, YET but I think PDJT is right, because our system is fundamentally sound, our economy WILL rebound in ways other countries won’t.

      Many of us have decried the devolution of our once great public education system, into an indoctrination system for conmunist brainwashing.

      Truth is, the system ‘should’ have fully embraced online learning, already.
      The brick and mortar model, is a poor method that attempts to put square pegs in round holes.

      Online learning actually returns to a,system where each student learns at their own pace, that was prevalent during the days of the “One room schoolhouse”.

      Once students get a taste of that, and realise the advantages, they are NOT going to want to go back.

      I include this,as an example of an ailing system, that the virus is attacking, and a healthier system of on line learning will actually benefit, as axresult of the virus from CHI-NA.

        Good stuff, Dutchman. Should this unfold as you have laid out, maybe, just maybe, it will be the end of not only the indoctrination centers of all learning but a good number of the classroom indoctrinators. Extrapolate more….taxpayer savings…school budgets gutted. NEA gone.

          Its early days, yet. To make a highly questionable analogy, there was the black plague, and then there was the aftermath, as society responded to the changes brought about BY the plague, which took time to play out.
          “Public” education is one endeavor where we CAN see the potential for fundamental change, resulting from woo-floo, but how many can we not yet,see the changes, that later will seem obvious?

        IMHO, on-line learning is a great tool for self-starters, tradesmen, retirees, or handicapped people. It is not a great tool for the typical grade school student who has not developed disciplines to sit still and study. That said, the current public school teachings are mediocre at best. The ideal situation is home schooling with parents that are committed and consistent to the system. It is very difficult to do economically because most homes require two incomes.

          “has not developed disciplines to sit still and study” That is one of the problems with public school. Boys, especially, have a hard time sitting still and listening. Heck, my ex husband had a hard time listening, even into his forties. Or, maybe it was just listening to me. But, I digress. I homeschooled a very active young man and we worked around his need to move. It is true that not all parents are capable of homeschooling, not because of their own education, but too many don’t even know how to parent. Don’t forget that Dr. Ben Carson’s mother taught him how to read……….and she didn’t know how herself. What a great mother. 🙂

            Modern schooling is not designed for energetic and mildly A.D.D. males. 90% of elementary teachers in our area are female.😟

          I agree on the ideal situation. Children have the ‘discipline’ to sit for HOURS playing video games, alone in their room, but not to LEARN?

          You know what keeps them glued to their screens? The video games are structured to give them a small dose of Dopamine, which their brain releases as a ‘reward’ chemical.

          And, how it work? A feeling of accomplishment is what triggers the release. Thats the way our brains are wired.

          In the games, its,shooting a zombie. But, the point is the brain is wired to release Dopamine, to reward us for accomplishing something.

          Gee, how hard would it be to put a periodic feeling of accomplishment into a learning program?

            Excellent, Dutchman! I used a few video games that involved playing with math concepts at the middle school level. Even though they were unsophisticated compared to today’s games (this was over 12 years ago), most of the students looked forward to them and learned. The competitive feature of the games had students (mostly the boys) cheering and being boisterous, something traditional teaching methods rarely inspire.

              If you can teach something that complicated, IMHO you can teach anything.
              In addition, a big spur to telemed, which I have also experienced first hand, has been NEEDED for a long time, and will be spurred as a result of the virus.

          Wage suppression via decades of mass immigration has resulted in most families needing at least two incomes. We are at the highest, most prolonged level if legal immigration in our nation’s history and that does not include “refugee” or “temporary” visa workers. We are no longer a vast, untamed wilderness but a conglomeration of overcrowded mega-cities. Lots of open space still exist but those areas are unsuitable to sustain large populations or they are needed for agriculture to feed our large cities. Until we significantly cut legal immigration then both parents will have to work outside the home and schools will continue to indoctrinate our children.

          I wonder if PTrump is going to actually increase legal immigration, though, in his second term as we not only recover from this virus plandemic but surge forward despite potentially millions of unemployed Americans relying on govt. Not every American is willing to work or capable if it. I don’t automatically assume much greater economic activity in his second term is a panacea in itself if it means importing millions of foreign workers. He’s already doubled visa workers and now the Refugee Resettlement program is getting hundreds of millions for expansion. We need parents involved in raising and educating their children and not foreign nannies and teachers, so that means much higher wages for one-income families which the globalists will fight tooth and nail. Complicated business, folks.

        I worry that on-line education will hurt social interaction/development, due to isolation of the system. My idea is teachers become companies and parents purchase education a-la-carte for K-college. The best teachers would be busy and the worst – not so much and/or price would reflect quality.

          Could you expand on that? Do you mean social interaction between students or between students and teachers? I preferred having control over who my kids socialized with. They took some online courses in high school and the teachers that we had a phone conference with once a week were great. Meanwhile, the kids went everywhere I did and interacted with all ages/walks of life (well, most average walks of life).

        Dutchman, your “stake to the heart of Globalism” is both replete with evidence and went to the ears. More focused national responses to the pandemic that nationalism supplies is an obvious benefit.

        As a counter weight over time the international financial system, past the pandemic stages, will remain responsible to direct development in all endeavors that provides the ability to “make a living” for the average deplorable.

        Case in point is the Chloroquine cocktail and the obvious resistance to deployment despite the medical need and efficacy of the cocktail. Big Pharma is threatened and the residual powers that be will revert to the controlled elopement and approval of medications that “fit” a controlled health system rather than respond to the needs of health improvement.

        Great day to be alive and root for individuals, industry and nation states that respond to needs of the people versus simply the needs of financiers.

    How about a big picture look at the “covid19 virus,…that came from CHI-NA?

    Most historians agree that while it wasn’t instantaneous, the Black plague caused an end to the feudal system.
    There simply weren’t sufficient #’s of dirt poor people willing to work the land for the wealthy landowners, and sustain such a system.

    Some are referring to Globalism as “Neo-Feudalism, as it is once again a relatively small % of the population that want to rule over, and profit from the majority.

    Is it possible that this virus from CHI-NA will, over time, undermine globalism in a similar way?

    I am tempted to ask “How could it NOT?”
    Hows the Globalist anthem of J. Lennons “Imagine” sounding now?
    “No countries, no borders” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    How about the idea of 10,000 mile long supply lines?

    The French people have expressed displeasure over globalisation for many years, but the GOVERNMENT in France has been ‘all in’. And yet saw,article today the French GOVERNMENT is issueing an advisory, for companies as they restock, to restock with products MADE IN FRANCE.

    Their version of “Buy American, Hire American.
    Italians are,wearing facemasks saying “screw you, EU! and burning EU flags.

    And, the EU is the poster child for,Globalism, with its no border checks.
    And isn’t THAT being shown to be a,GREAT idea/s!

    So, while my crystal ball is ectreamly scratched up, foggy and chipped, and frankly my eyesite is not what itconce was,…I can see where this covid virus from CHI-NA could, potentially lead to or accellerate the demise of Globalism.

    Stay tuned,…

      “lead to or accelerate the demise of Globalism”

      These are great observations Dutchman. Trump was the first American politician/candidate willing to name and call out our existential enemy – globalism. This virus scare is one of many assaults they have launched against him.

      Gloablism’s agenda has been methodically woven into America’s federal, state and local bureaucracies since Bush-1 signed us onto the Rio Treaty. Federal, state, city and county policies/funding are now ideologically, structurally and financially aligned with globalism. I fight this at local levels and know it is all still very well funded. I anticipate the next phase when President Trump can start dismantling the insidious funding programs that run directly down to cities and counties.

      This is a zero sum game, and those intent on ruling us will do anything to stop Donald J Trump.

        Yes, part of our falling asleep, for so many years, was focusing on Presidential elections, every 4 years.

        Based on turn out, less attention to off year Congressional elections, even less for primaries, and least interest of all in local municipal and county elections.

        And yet the reality is, day to day, it is your local politicians that have far more impact on your lives.

        Typically, the POTUS doesn’t detirmine if you can park your car in front of your house, or how often the garbage gets picked up, etc.
        $oro$ knows that, thats why he is funneling $ into LOCAL prosecutors elections.

      Only one wrinkle in your analysis…SARS and MRS were coronaviruses that were worse and that did not end globalism. The seasonal flu is worse and that comes every year and yet globalism has not suffered and there is no seasonal panic or hysteria and toilet paper is still on the shelves even though with the flu more probably gets used.

      The only way globalism would be injured with something like this is if it were somehow only affecting the globalists. As long as serfs with pre-existing conditions are the ones effected or dying it is just a blessing to a globalist…fewer mouths to feed.

          I think you hit the nail on the head there, “Mom.” When this virus hit, we decided as a society to do something that we’d never done before – to drastically alter human behavior whatever the cost to society might be. A tremendous amount of hype was produced. Data was widely distributed but not in-context. And – we really don’t know if any of it will have done any good at all.

          I predict that people will conclude that it didn’t, “so, why did we do this?” There will be tremendous blowback, worldwide.

    I have shared previously, I view us as currently engaged in WW4,…WW3 being the “Cold War”.

    And, like the others, it truly IS a,WORLD war, but rather than primarily being a war between alliances of countries, (as WW1 and WW2) or primarily a war between countries US vs USSR, this war is
    Globalism vs Nationalism.

    So, in this war, who’s side would GOD be on? Seems pretty obvious that the adherents of Globalism also promote/defend abortion, homosexual rights, transgenderism, etc.

    And they at war with religion especially Christianity and Judaism, so it SEEMS fairly obvious God wouldn’t support Globalism.

    But, would he support NATIONALISM?
    Well, he DID single out one group of people, to be his,”Chosen people”, that seems Nationalist over Globalist.

    And of coarse there is the Tower of Babel, where he not only destroyed the Tower, but caused men to speak different languages.

    As language is foundational to character, he laid the groundwork for different, seperate nations right there.

    Point being if GOD decided tovweigh in, on this War of Globalism vs Nationalism, on the side of Nationalism,….hard to see a more effective device than this virus.

        Perfect example from Judicial Watch;
        “The toilet system on two new, state-of-the-art Navy aircraft carriers is so crappy that it must be cleansed with specialized acids that cost American taxpayers a breathtaking $400,000 a flush. It may seem like a bad joke but, sadly, it is par for the course for many government agencies. The outrageous toilet expense is a snippet of a larger problem involving the Navy’s multi-billion-dollar budget to maintain its fleet.”

          Maybe this is a periodic maintenance of the system ‘flush’? There must be a lot of toilets to clean on ships that big. And just what does the navy do with all that crap? Forget about the environmental effect, you could track our fleets sniffing out human waste. And ports won’t let the navy add to the pollution.

Another one of God’s attributes is His sovereignty in which He created different languages and “scattered them over the face of the whole earth” allowing different nations with different languages all over the earth to rise and fall. If China developed this virus in a lab and infected the world with it either accidentally or intentionally God can use that evil for His good for we know that in Romans 8:28 “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Amen!

    President Donald Trump’s border reforms are helping the Department of Homeland Security to eject most southern migrants in just 96 minutes, according to a report in the Washington Post.

    “Migrants who cross into the United States illegally are being expelled to Mexico in an average of 96 minutes under emergency coronavirus measures now in force across the U.S. southern border, according to three U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest government statistics,” the newspaper reported Monday. The report said:

    Under the new rules, U.S. agents are processing migrants from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras “in the field” before they are able to set foot inside a U.S. Border Patrol station. The migrants are then whisked back to the border and sent into Mexico.

Just like they continue to claim the oceans will rise while buying beach front property and profiting from phony “green” projects, the ones telling us that 100s of 1000s of US citizens are going to die don’t seem to be overly concerned about their own potential deaths from this killer virus. Why is that? Is it perhaps just another ploy to continue to shred the US Constitution, the ONLY construct that has made the USA the greatest nation on EARTH.

    There is now an almost 100% effective treatment for this “killer” virus. It has a track record and the drugs have been on the market for decades with know attributes. Yet, this has not changed their dire death predictions one bit. WHY? Something to think about.

        But in order to protect himself, he can tell Americans that Fauci and company want us to remain at home. He can then tell everyone that they need to weigh the risks for themselves and if they want to go to work, then go. If they are afraid and want to stay home they can do so, but only until May 1st. At that point, if you choose not to go to work, your employer can fire you and you will lose your unemployment.

Her first recorded political donation was $150 to Hillary Clinton in 2016, according to FEC records. The next year she gave $550 to the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Since 2018, she has contributed approximately $6,000 to Democratic electoral groups.

          Not defending the fishtank cleaner lady; but in terms of political donations being a sign of nefariousness, here is something to consider:

          I rarely had made any political donations in my decades of living – until 2016, when I started donating to the [then] Candidate Trump’s campaign.

          Since 2016 I have donated regularly to his campaign.

          So, in that sense, the fishtank cleaner lady and myself share a commonality (we both apparently began making regular political donations, starting in 2016).

          But I can assure you that, although I may be making regular political donations since 2016, I am not laundering money. 🙂

      Careful. Propaganda is an ugly game. Last week I read nothing but how every statement Fauci makes undermines the President and calls for worst case scenario. I warned my parents about him, but they watch every second of Trump’s task force press conferences. They told me that nothing I was saying about Fauci seemed to add up.

      So this week I paid closer attention. Fauci isn’t making these outrageous claims as fact. He is being asked stupid questions like “could there be a second outbreak in the fall?” — and well, obviously there could be. What kind of stupid question is that?

      So eve though he made no attempt to come out and say “People this is going to kill 200K and there could be a second outbreak in the fall”…. the media pretends that he did. He has gone out of his way to disclaim that projections are not real numbers and that it would be dangerous for the press to quote a scary number and report it as fact. And yet…. after he heeds that warning, that is exactly what they go about and do.

      They do it with Trump too.

      He says “let’s reassess at Easter which way we want to go”… the media reports that as “Trump is irresponsibly ending the quarantine in two weeks”

      Total lie.

      When they get called out on the lie… they change the narrative to “Trump sings different tune on ending amid increasing COVID death rates”

      Another lie.

      They can’t help themselves. Every word they print is a lie.

      It makes it very difficult to discern what is true and what isn’t.

I think what makes this thing different (that we know as fact), is there is no vaccine to keep it in check. The different death rates between public and private hospitals in NYC is proof positive that there are too many variables in play to make such a deadlier than thou statement.

    The March release of pending home sales came out, this means February’s numbers.

    The so called experts projected -1.8% decline what we have is a + 2.4% increase. My goal here is once again to establish an actual base to see what damage the Chinese virus and the socialist propaganda networks can do. Followed by how quickly and strong PDJT’s team of economic experts can right the ship of state.

    Break down, index number, month +- // Year over Year. 2019

    Nationally
    February’s 111.5 + 2.4%

    Northeast:
    February: 96.3 +2.8% // YOY + 5.9%
    South:
    February: 129.2 + 0.1% // YOY + 7.1%

    West:
    February: 97.1 + 4.6% // YOY + 10.8%

        @ Robert Smith:
        From my perspective (very long term) we were and are just beginning to get our legs under us. For generations the single family home was the basis of wealth for most of middle America and those climbing the ladder into the middle class.

        It actually used to be able to be able to fund not only college educations (prior to massive government involvement there) but retirement. Starter homes, followed by family homes , then concluding with either a downsizing retirement home, or at least living in a paid for home with only basic utilities to worry about.

        This housing concept and practice was a gift cemented during the Eisenhower administration and the creation of the suburbs. The creation of his power grid, interstate highways, and other accomplishments now glossed over and forgotten. ( Did you know that bridges over internet highways were set at a height to allow trailers carrying tanks to move freely?)

        My thoughts here are that PDJT knowing the value of real estate and having a historical perspective will be able to re-establish the American housing market to its once preeminent role on main street America. So from a historical perspective much still needs to done. The war on manufacturing went hand in hand with the war on American housing.

        PDJT is and was making incredible progress with dual banking system reaching into mainstreet. These numbers are returning or capable of reaching the pre-housing crash of the Bush Presidency. Those organizations that should have fought what was happening spent their resources to protect a tax deduction instead of their own livelihood.

    In case you missed it, on Sunday 3/29, VP Pence sent a letter to all Hospital Administrators nationwide “….requesting your assistance with reporting data that is critical for epidemiological surveillance and public health decision making. We understand that you may already be reporting to your State, but the data is needed at the federal level to support FEMA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in their efforts to support states and localities in addressing and responding to the virus.

    We are requesting that all hospitals report data on COVID-19 testing performed in your Academic/University/Hospital “in-house” laboratories…..all data for COVID-19 testing completed at “in-house” laboratories or a laboratory not listed above be reported using the attached spreadsheet.
    Due date/time: The spreadsheet is due EVERY day at 5 PM ET.
    Data to report: The data elements are outlined in the attached spreadsheet, but should include all test results that were completed during the previous day with a midnight cutoff. (to be submitted to FEMA).

    I take from this that the Task Force and the President want to get the actual granular detail of CV tests performed, the outcomes, and deaths and not just computer-modelled predictions.

Does anyone see a problem with that? The only reason we have the drug cleared from the FDA is because President Trump, common sense, got it done.

      We live on a planet that is saturated with viruses: they are constantly in the air you breathe and on everything you touch. Many of them cannot infect you, cannot infect anything. Viruses constantly mutate, but they’re not “alive.” They cause copies of themselves to be mass-reproduced, but they don’t “reproduce,” and the process is not subject to natural selection. China has a very dense population and an agrarian society, and they like to eat game. This produces many opportunities for new strains of virii to develop – naturally. And then to spread, if they can, as they once again in Nature do.

They continue to do so. Because: “we share the same biology, regardless of ideology.”

        You do not immediately know that what you are facing is a “new” and “novel” virus mutation. But, as soon as the Chinese confirmed it, they publicly announced it, having already begun to share technical data about it to other disease control officials. The complete RNA sequence is now publicly available everywhere. Anytime anyone anywhere finds something or thinks of something, they share it – such as the “where malaria is, this virus isn’t” observation that led to experimentation with a common anti-malarial drug which now seems to be effective. Data is being gathered now about each and every time it is being prescribed or dosed, and that data is being shared world-wide.

    In NC; young people are being infected…youngest is 20. They are closing off most of our trails for hiking because for one thing all these people are out of work, the weather is warmer, and one thing you are allowed to do is go outdoors and hike. So hiking trails crowded and people are not social distancing ruining it for all of us.

    As of 2 p.m. March 30, North Carolina had 1,307 cases of lab-tested COVID-19, an increase of 264 cases over the previous day.

    The median age of patients who have tested positive for COVID-19 in NC is 46, according to Dr. Mandy Cohen, Secretary of the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

    Six state residents have died, Cohen said at the 2 p.m. briefing, and 137 people with known COVID-19 are hospitalized statewide.

      Trouble is – these numbers are actually tiny. In the State of North Carolina, last week there were 4,280 reported cases of flu, and 5 deaths. (This in spite of vaccinations.)

      We monitor influenza nationally and constantly, as we do all infectious diseases, but we do not shut down our lives for them.

      I believe we will very soon realize that our draconian and costly measures really didn’t affect the virus at all. And, once that sinks in, there will be hell to pay. Even though we should presume that the decision was informed and made in good faith, both by the President and by the literally thousands of people who advise the Executive Branch.

      What can stop a virus .. (no pun) cold? Wash your hands. Sneeze into your sleeve. If you’re sick, stay home. Virus particles are fragile and easily destroyed.

        I agree strongly. I also believe that these people are so myopic, so focused on the problem, that they do not think their actions have negative consequences, only benefits.

        I hear mixed messages from the experts on the what good they expect to come from their intervention. Hidden behind a lot that they say is that it can’t be stopped, only slowed down. So people are going to die anyways. Some argue medical care makes a difference, so slow it down to not overwhelm the medical system and fewer die. But they do not openly commit to saying such harsh things. So we are told shutting borders worked or at least helped, social distancing works, or at least helps, shutting done restaurants works, or at least helps, locking healthy people in their houses works, or at least helps. And so forth.

        In the end, enough people get immunity that the virus doesn’t spread well anymore. And everything we do to prevent the spread leaves us open to it’s rebirth. Block it from China and get it from Italy. Avoid getting it at the bar and get it at the grocery store.

        It looks like Taiwan and S. Korea are able to keep the spread minimized. I am not sure we could effectively quarantine everyone with the disease, but we really bungled the tests despite seeing these two countries test successfully and broadly.

        We have also left ourselves completely vulnerable to predicted shortages of essential products. Masks, ventilators, medicines, and so forth. And allowed ourselves to become reliant on self-declared enemies for our supplies.

        So we can’t intervene like S. Korea or Taiwan. As Rummy said, you go to war with the army you have, and our predecessors disarmed.

        And government bureaucrats are doing their damndest to not do anything to really help. But arrogance and incompetence are to be expected from bureaucrats.

        I was just watching some propaganda from the 50’s on CSPAN3 preparing us for the asiatic flu. Much like the 2009 swine flu, they had a vaccine in just months. But today we are told a year and a half is the quickest it has ever been done.

        It seems to me that they are not being truly open or honest with us. And that breeds conspiracy fears. I suspect it is a mix of being trained to act like they are on top of everything (doctor training), a need to look like competent leaders (they are the experts who insist they should be in charge in these emergencies), and the general human tendency to cover our asses and those of our team.

        But there have also been two well timed scares. One that put Britain on the global regimen, influencing lots of governments at the time, and one to keep Trump on the global regimen.

        Add it all up, and they are throwing away the trust and benefit of doubt we have placed in them.

        They need to be more open and honest. And they need to start right away.

      I believe viruses prefer colder temps.

      Supposedly this virus is somewhere between 3 and 4 times more contagious than seasonal flu. Flu is human in origin, so we have some natural immunity to it, our immune system knows what to do. As you stated there are also vaccines and there are known therapeutics.

      This is an animal virus that has morphed and our immune systems or at least some of our immune systems can’t handle it. This is not a seasonal flu outbreak, this is a pandemic. There is a difference.

      The isolation isn’t necessarily about stopping the virus, it’s about slowing it. It’s about not overwhelming our medical system.

      I think there are vast areas where there is no need for these measures, but if parts of the country open up trust me people from hotspots will flood in. I’m in Florida and come they have, like a swarm of locusts. Short of martial law, I don’t know how we open some areas. There are areas that have a moderate number of cases and ample healthcare facilities, again the locusts will arrive if you open those areas. You can’t blame them it’s survival and the media sure as hell isn’t helping.

      I don’t know if any of this will flatten the curve, I hope it does. I felt fairly confident with the measures taken for small business and workers, we could weather the 2 week period and recover. Extending another month, I have WAY less confident. If the drug combo proves as effective as reports from other countries, then that will be a game changer and this will end in short order.

      I know an entire family stricken with this and let me assure everyone this is NOT a cold or even just “the flu”. One of them damn near died, after 5 days of getting worse and worse, hospital doctors started the drug combo, BOOM 36 hours later all vitals returned to normal!! Like POTUS I’m a believer.

    “And now we have COVID-19, which has disrupted the entire world. One-third of the earth’s population is under some sort of lockdown. Livelihoods are ruined, economies destroyed, hundreds of thousands are ill and tens of thousands are dead. And the Chinese government, the Chinese diaspora, the political left, and the media want you to forget how COVID grew from the willful failure of China to learn the lessons of SARS.

    So let’s not forget.

    Remember that COVID-19, like SARS, began because of specifically Chinese customs, practices, and fetishes.

    Remember that during and after the SARS outbreak, the Chinese knew that the wet markets were a danger, yet they were allowed to prosper.

    Remember that experts predicted that a bigger, badder SARS would eventually be born from the wet markets. COVID-19 is the most predictable calamity in modern history.

    And remember that a ban on Chinese wet markets would have prevented COVID-19. This was the most preventable calamity in modern history.

    If we allow anything—fear of “racism,” hatred of Trump, lucrative Chinese business dealings—to get in the way of halting those wet markets for good this time, it’s a certainty that eventually we’ll see an even worse pandemic. There can be no soft feelings here, no sensitivity, no diplomacy. The Chinese must be cajoled, shamed, ridiculed, banned, and threatened until they stop risking the lives of every human on earth because they love eating things that shouldn’t be eaten.

    The Chinese don’t deserve hugs; they’re lucky that most of us are civilized enough to not take violent revenge for what they’ve wrought. They should count their blessings that they can still walk among us unmolested. But they shouldn’t mistake our civility for forgiveness.

    ‘They have the power to shut the sky…and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish.’ I’m not a religious man, but that line from Revelation seems appropriate. The Chinese have shut the world with their latest plague.

    We need to make sure it’s their last.”

      I simply think that the big problem with China is that they are a largely agrarian society and their population is extremely dense. Yes, they also traditionally like to eat game – sometimes, very unusual game. But I wouldn’t assert that “wet markets,” as you call them, represent a public health menace. If the Chinese people or the Chinese government believed that they did, they would have shut them down long ago because, anytime something new breaks out, it hits them first. I believe that the actual answer lies in simple statistics: the more people you have, and the more densely they live, the greater the chance of illnesses spreading among them, and then escaping into the world.

    My guess the cabal thought President Trump would just let it rip. We all know the false narrative, that President is dumb, has no empathy for anyone, hates people of color, especially immigrants (invaders/squatters). Instead he mobilized and made a decision, in his estimation “what was best for the American people?” This gives me comfort that we have an American President that loves America and its people is dealing with this, as opposed to someone who thinks that we are “irredeemable deplorable’s).” You know who I’m referring too.

    Like Dutchman said up-thread this latest attempt to take out President Trump is exposing in real-time the con that has been perpetrated on the American people for decades. Instead of weakening our Great President Trump they are showing his managerial expertise that mystifies al swamp rats. Something as simple as; “see problem fix problem.” Even Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx who are longtime swamp denizens seem impressed with this remarkable man VSGPDJT.

    Though I believe Wuhan Flu was an intentional salvo released to injure President Donald J Trump and nationalism, in the end it will it will strengthen him and expose the dangers and idiocy of globalism. Made in America will be embraced again as it already is.
