In Time of Trouble
3-27-20, As a result of the hysteria over the Corona virus and proclamations by US governments federal and states:
Despite what Democrat leaders claim, abortions are elective not urgent or safe. Recently, medical groups representing more than 30,000 doctors in America emphasized that abortions are not “essential” or “urgent,” and abortion facilities that continue to operate during the pandemic are being “medically irresponsible.”
Abortions kill unborn babies and put mothers’ lives at risk. Common abortion complications include infections, blood clots, hemorrhaging and an incomplete abortion where parts of the baby remain inside the mother’s womb. Abortion risks include future preterm births, breast cancer, suicide, anxiety/depression, and death. And it is not true that abortions are safer than childbirth. More here
Science Proves Hugging Trees Is Good for Health
6-23-14, Hugging a tree may have gained popularity as it was a maligned hippy practice, but it has now been validated by science to be incredibly beneficial for both people and the planet. Contrary to popular belief, hugging - or even just being in the vicinity of - a tree can boost one's health in several ways. Not only is clutching a giant, sturdy oak therapeutic and free, it could offer a plethora of benefits and save the populace a large amount in healthcare costs. -->
<--A report documenting the effects of nature and improving health states that “safe, green spaces may be as effective as prescription drugs in treating some forms of mental illnesses.” Human beings can only live outside of the laws of nature for so long before symptoms of disconnect be made manifest. With the increasing prevalence of lifestyle-related diseases, it’s clear more attention deserves to be given to holistic practices so that the cause of imbalance be alleviated and lifestyle-related illnesses dissipate.
Hug these trees! Washington Park Arboretum
7-7-17, Many tourists proclaim that they couldn't possibly visit Seattle without visiting the arboretum.
There are many paved or graveled trails making congestion-free meandering possible. Well placed benches mean respite from city noise. Mature specimens are an astonishing sight and especially enjoying the wisteria.
The beauty of the colorful curtain of scented flowers in spring and summer, the elegant foliage, the fascinating drooping of flowers of the Wisteria is one of the best ornamental vines. During blooming, it produce a sweet pleasant scent; the best species of wisteria flowers produce fragrance is the Chinese wisteria that has the most notable pleasant scent.
Gotta Get Rid of Those Jews & Christians
Elderly People Highest Percentage of Conservatives and Faith
God said, "Thou shalt rise up before the hoary [white] head and honor the face of the old man and fear thy God: I am the LORD."
3-27-2020, * -- Coronavirus is killing older people . The large majority of conservatives in America and around the world are older people. In Italy  and other countries are openly declaring that. because of the shortage of respirators, anyone over 60 will not be supplied one – they will simply be left to die. Belief in God, conservative and moral values of Jews and Christians are being upheld mostly by older people  and the liberals have declared a total war on Jewish and Christian values. In fact, they have declared a war on Jews and Christians. Sounds a lot like a verse out of the Muslim Quran where it says “look there is a Jew behind the tree come and kill him”.
We know there is a global growing satanic hatred towards Jews and Christians, with prayer being removed from your schools, crosses being torn down around the nation and the name Jesus and God being removed from educational study books in our schools and with Jews and Christians being murdered in their places of worship by Islamic terrorists. And as the Muslims take over European cities Jews and Christians that haven’t left are living in fear. [..snip]
Apparently it wasn’t enough to accelerate the take over of all of Europe by Muslims who still have a problem with the great Satan [the USA], then along came the designer-made Coronavirus that kills the older people and Donald Trump’s great American economy at the same time. [..]
Biblical Prophecy is not a new thing, it was from the beginning of time and the Devil has known from the beginning his final days draws nigh and he has been planning his last fight against the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He knew it would take a fanatical religion - called Islam - to prepare a people that would want to kill all the Jews and Christians on earth.
God gave us Scriptures warning us of the coming end time as we read what the Lord Jesus said:
"Nation shall rise against nation & kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, famines, pestilences; fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for My name’s sake." Luke 12:10-12
I’ve tried to understand how the USA Democrat Party could have so suddenly become anti God and in support of any and all evils meant to destroy the United States as we have known her. ... it can only be explained as being spiritual and I might add evilly spiritual. And those who have a gift of discernment know something really big is about to happen on this planet, and we’re not going to like it.
The coronavirus as bad as it is, and going to get, it is another smokescreen while the enemies of God, Israel, Europe and the free world plan their evil takeover and destruction of both Israel and the United States of America.
The panic and hysteria ... could it be God's 'strong delusion?' -- Annette
"Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12

The younger generation is disrespectful to elders
3-26-20, Debate.org -- My great grandparents had no electricity, my grandparents didn't have a phone or a car. My parents had black and white tv. The 50s-60's generation had pride being embarrassed if they needed help; few were on Federal/state welfare assistance. Immigration into the USA required the migrant to have sponsors, jobs and were screened for disease before being legally admitted. Technology was a process from typewriters, adding machines to computers. Without our grand founding fathers, we wouldn't have this country. Regardless of all the hardships our ancestors faced our Senior citizens now face disrespect and scorn by the younger generation. -->
<-- It makes me sick for what I see coming from too many of our children. Sex without benefit of marriage reduces the need for marriage. Value of life has been diminished with the approval of aborting a human child at 9 months. Divorce and no father in the home, young boys imprinting on the mother because no man is around to be a role model and show them how to be masculine. Homosexuality is now considered normal behavior. We have at least two generations of effeminate, weak males (ie: antifa) who don't have a spine or a conscience behaving like silly women. Young moral women have given up hope of having a stable home life; meeting a man who will be a strong father and protector as God intended marriage to be.
University, Community College or Trade School
3-26-20, ValueColleges -- Trade school; alternative to university also goes by the name of technical or a vocational school is an institution that exists for the sole purpose of teaching the skills to perform a specific job. Training ranging from welding, plumbing, HVAC, electrician, cosmetology to medical imaging. Going to university might not be the best choice for everyone; it's a four year commitment, which means four years of potential work experience lost. Many say that university life during these four years can be trifling, forcing individuals to spend more time theorizing about life in a classroom rather than actually gaining a foothold in an increasingly volatile job market. University costs are sky high. According to the NCES it can be well over $120,000 after four years. Furthermore, over 70% of students take out loans for school and more than 20% of those who owe money for loans owe more than $50,000.
Reasons Your New Bachelor's Degree is Worthless
A college degree doesn't guarantee security, just as not having a college degree doesn't guarantee failure. When making the decision whether to attend or not, check the facts as they pertain to your individual situation.On average, the cost for one year of attendance at four-year public college or university costs 40% of a family’s income, and on average, approximately 40% of students leave school with a debt of $22,000. If you’re from a family that earns between $40k and $50k, that number jumps to $28,000. Why not a trade school? the world needs carpenters, plumbers and electricians.
Are Student Loans Worth It?
3-23-20, TheSimpleDollar --While a top-tier college education can lead to better job prospects and lifetime earnings overall, some expensive colleges aren't worth it. More than $1.3 trillion dollars, with $2,726 added every second for student loan debt. For individuals it's a lifetime sentence of debt. And for most, it represents regret – and a whole lot of it. For the graduating class of 2016, the average debt load of indebted students surged over $37,000 for the first time. And nationwide, the delinquency rate on student loans is well over 11%.
Elephants Killed Christian Enemies in Odisha, India
Merciful Pastor Helps Homeless Orphaned Children
V 27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. V22 You shall not mistreat any widow or fatherless child. V7 Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. V5 God said, “I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, against the adulterers, against those who swear falsely, against those who oppress … the widow and the fatherless.”
3-26-20, * -- Reportedly, in 2007 Christian leader in Kandhamal Odisha, India - Pastor Prakash, brought 40 orphaned children into his home, from areas ravaged by disaster. By 2008, radical Hindu locals wanted to kill him. Pastor Prakash reported: “I was bound to leave my housing by evening. I left everything. I went to the forest with the children. By 7:30 they burned down my house.” The next two days were spent deep in the jungle and later in a relief camp, or rehabilitation home. Christian non-government organizations (NGO’s) sent representatives to set up tents and give the newly homeless people food and supplies.
On August 23, 2008, Hindu leader Swami Laxmanananda was assassinated in Odisha. Police arrested seven Maoist men. However, the area’s Christian population was blamed saying it was an international conspiracy organized by the church. Christianity was banned and, over a three month period of terror; Christians were commanded to denounce their faith and follow Hinduism or be arrested. While extremist Hindus traveled in murderous groups to small Christian villages tucked deep into the pockets Odisha’s vast mountainous region, survivors heard chants ”Christian dharmo chalibo nahi” [Christian religion will not remain]. The groups killed many Christians who were publicly slaughtered, buried alive or burned. Human rights groups estimate that, by the time the Indian government took control of the situation, over 100 Christians were dead, 300 churches destroyed, 600 homes demolished and 56,000 people homeless.
In 2009 - exactly one year later, at the same time that the Hindu extremists began their rioting and path of destruction and horror; a herd of wild elephants charged through Kandhamal - as they do every year. Although this year they arrived abnormally early and the homes of those responsible for the 2008 riots were completely wiped out as elephants stormed through their communities killing five of the Christian oppressors. Some Christian homes were damaged, but no Christians died.
The animals were later referred to as the “Christian Elephants.”
Examples in scripture where the Lord God used His creation of animals to accomplish His goals:
a donkey Numbers 22:28; a whale Jonah 1:17; ravens 1 Kings 17:3-4; bear 2 Kings 2:23-25 and lions Daniel 6:22.
Although elephants aren't found in scripture … why not in modern day - the Lord used elephants in India?!
11-29-19, MorningStarNews -- The Supreme Court of India issued a decision granting bail to the five Christians from Odisha state falsely accused of killing Hindu leader Swami Laxmanananda Saraswati, whose death on Aug. 23, 2008 in Kandhamal District touched off anti-Christian attacks that killed 120 people, destroyed nearly 6,000 homes and displaced thousands...

Have No Other 'gods' Before Me!
The Lord God said, "Thou shalt worship no other god: for the Lord, Whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God: go not after other gods to serve them, and to worship them, and provoke Me not to anger with the works of your hands; and I will do you no hurt. Mankind cannot serve two masters."
3-25-20, In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship.

- you don't want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can't go to church.
The Lord God said, "If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek My face and turn from their wicked ways; THEN will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land." 2 Chronicles 7:14

President Trump Reiterates Hope to "Re-Open" Nation by Easter
3-24-20, Spectrum News, Florida -- STATEWIDE — During a briefing Tuesday afternoon, President Donald Trump said he wants to "re-open" the country by Easter, April 11, 2020 calling it a "great timeline." He also touted FEMA's efforts, saying it's distributing more than 8 million N-95 respirators, 14 million surgical masks, 2.4 million face shields, and 1.9 million surgical gowns. Trump said 4,000 ventilators have been sent to the areas of greatest need and many, he says, are being sent to New York. Also during the briefing: -->
<-- Pres Trump said the Army Corps of Engineers and National Guard are building four hospitals in New York, which would be operational "soon," though he didn't provide a timeline. He said four additional medical facilities, described as "temporary but incredible," were being built in different parts of the state, which has been hardest hit by the coronavirus outbreak. He said that although he activated the Defense Production Act "quite a long time ago," he insisted he doesn't have to use it, because private companies are "heeding the call" to produce medical supplies, but it would be weeks before factories can be retrofitted to be able to make them.
Turkey Cuts Water Supply for NE Syria
The Sixth Vial And The Euphrates River
“And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.”
Tigris and Euphrates [Revelation 16:12] Rivers are Drying Up
The water flow in the important Euphrates and Tigris Rivers has decreased as a result of Turkey's dams ... The Euphrates’ problems begin more than 1,000 miles upstream, near the river’s catchment area below the Taurus Mountains in eastern Turkey. In a headlong rush to generate electricity and create arable land, the Turkish government has been on a dam-building boom for two generations. In 1974 the Keban Dam was opened on the Upper Euphrates. The Ataturk Dam was finished in 1990. The ongoing Southeastern Anatolia Project, a $32 billion scheme to build 22 dams and 19 hydroelectric plants on both the Tigris and the Euphrates, will eventually provide nearly one-quarter of Turkey’s electricity. Syria, meanwhile, built the Tabqa Dam upstream from Raqqa in the 1970s, and added a few more dams on the Euphrates and its tributaries before the civil war ground development to a halt. Since the Turkish and Syrian dams began operating in the 1970s, the water flow into Iraq has dropped by nearly two-thirds. [..snip] Sadly because of so much war little has been done for the government to swing into action. The Euphrates needs good management, legislation and enforcement a third party, like the USA to help drag Turkey and Syria to the bargaining table to work out a deal for equitable distribution of upstream water. Without this some believe the Euphrates will soon be reduced to a barren, dusty riverbed, and the countless Iraqis who depend on it will find their very survival jeopardized.

Turkey Blocks Water to Syria via Euphrates River Dams
3-24-20, Persecution Today – Recently Turkish sponsored armed groups have cut the water supply that provides water to 460,000 people living in Syria’s Hasakah province. The ancestors of many in the Syrian area are those who survived the genocide of Turkey’s predecessor, the Ottoman Empire. Local officials say Turkey & Russia had brokered a deal only four months ago which was supposed to guarantee drinking water in exchange for a power supply. Turkey’s actions in this area have repeatedly come under fire as a type of genocide against minorities who fail to conform to the government’s definition of Turkishness and Islam. By expanding its influence into Syria, Turkey further complicates an environment that has steadily pushed Christians out of the country. More here
Erdogan calls on Muslim countries to unite and confront Israel
5-18-18, Aljazeera.com -- Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan calls on Muslim countries to unite and confront Israel. Turkish president tells OIC leaders that Israel must be held accountable for the killing of Palestinians in Gaza Strip.
Erdogan's Vision: Uniting an 'Army of Islam'
3-13-18, CBN.com -- JERUSALEM, Israel - An article in a Turkish paper with close ties to Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan exposes the regime's desire to form an "Army of Islam" to attack and destroy the Jewish state of Israel ...
"Army of Islam": Erdogan's Plot Against Israel
3-28-18, TheGlobalist.com -- Turkey's “A Call for Urgent Action” published in the newspaper’s website with the more explicit title, “What if an Army of Islam was Formed Against Israel?” The article openly called on the 57 member states of the OIC to form a joint “Army of Islam” to simultaneously attack Israel from the east, west, north, and south. According to Israel’s Shin Bet, among other sinister plots Turkey is aiding the Gaza based Islamic terror group Hamas with funds and military gear to create a “Palestinian” army to join in the fight against Israel. The idea of creating an “Army of Islam” to destroy Israel was accompanied by an interactive map providing formation of military forces for a joint Muslim attack on Israel. It also provides details on military forces based in various locations and the role they can play to execute their scheme. Erdogan has long proclaimed that Turkey is the leading Islamist state and he is the Caliphate of the born again Ottoman Empire. To promote its revival and his ambition to become the leader of the Muslim world, Erdogan exploits Islam as the common cause around which all Muslim states can rally. [..]Since the publication of Turkey's outrageous plan, not a single U.S. or EU official has condemned it.
The United States and the EU must demand that Erdogan disassociate himself from the ideas reported by Yeni Şafak and reject it in the strongest terms. Moreover, the United States should put Erdogan on notice that further promulgation of his Ottoman revivalist ideology will be dealt with as a threat to the United States’ and the EU’s strategic interests and will bear severe consequences.

Why Democrats Stopped the Coronavirus Funding Bill
3-23-20, PJMedia -- So what is really going on? Why did Democrats vote to block the virus stimulous bill in Congress? A Democrat aide dropped an essential clue when discussing the bill with The Hill saying that the bill's small business provision would exclude nonprofits that receive Medicaid from being eligible for Small Business Admin assistance. Claiming some provision would impact Planned Parenthood [abortion mills] that isn't a small business and neither are nonprofits. -->
<-- NY Dem Chuck Schumer and Calif Dem Nancy Pelosi are pushing for unprecedented collective bargaining powers for unions, increased fuel emissions standards for airlines, expansion of wind and solar tax credits, want to Change the voting system to mail in, expanding Social Security benefits, abortion funding and a host of other pork for local congressmen. These provisions would arguably make the situation worse for businesses and have nothing to do with helping businesses and Americans impacted by the corona virus fiasco. Delusion reins.
3-24-20, The Wall Street Journal editorial board writes -- “What a spectacle. Much of America is quarantined at home, the public is so panicked there’s a run on toilet paper, the country desperately wants reassurance, and Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer decide to take a bipartisan rescue bill as a political hostage [loading the bill with pork for special interests-Ed.]. When America most needs bipartisan cooperation, Democrats add to the economic uncertainty by putting their partisan interests above the needs of the country.” More here
The doubter, Nathanael believed! He said to Jesus, "Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God; Thou art the King of Israel! Jesus said unto him, "Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these! Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.”
3-23-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- In Jacob’s dream, angels were ascending and descending on a great ladder between Earth and heaven [Genesis 28:12]. Christ promised a future reality in which He Himself would be the ladder to the opened heaven. However, that was to be “hereafter [John 13:36].” Until Christ came to die and rise again, heaven was closed, for nothing unclean could enter there, and death had “passed upon all men, for that all have sinned” (Romans 5:12). Even those who died in faith could only be “comforted” in “Abraham’s bosom” deep “in the heart of the earth” (Luke 16:22, 25; Matthew 12:40), because “it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins” (Hebrews 10:4) as was the plan in the Old Testament. Then Christ died and rose again “to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26).
In His spirit, “Jesus also descended first into the lower parts of the earth,” and when he ascended up on high, he led all pre-Calvary saints with Him into heaven. (Ephesians 4:8-9) Then was fulfilled the wonderful scene predicted:
“Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.” Psalm 24:7
Since that wonderful day when Christ ascended back to heaven [Acts 1:9-11]. Someday God will call His children home; both believers in the grave that will open and those who are alive and remain will be called up to Heaven. [1 Thessalonians 4:16-17] John prophesied it this way:
“I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice…said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter” (Revelation 4:1).
Heaven thenceforth will be open eternally to all the redeemed. (Revelation 21:25). Source
Dr Anthony Fauci is now the President of the United States
Question the ECONOMIC DEVASTATION now consciously set in place over the 'epidemic' Covid-19 [aka Coronavirus], in the US, as a result of lockdowns, will last how long?
If the CDC and Dr Fauci and his cohorts at the World Health Organization [WHO] say two months, the devastation will be two months. [..] That, in turn, equals how long the lockdowns will persist, which in turn equals how long smashing of the economy will last.
As “president,” Fauci trumps Trump; Pres Trump has been put in a box, checked and double checked. I believe the epidemic itself is a misnomer: the dubious discovery of a new virulent virus; worthless, deceptive, useless diagnostic tests for the coronavirus, rendering case numbers meaningless; people suffering from a variety of traditional disease conditions and several new non-viral conditions, all re-labeled under the empty umbrella term, “COVID-19.” The media pumping of fear; medical/public health authorities put in charge of national policy; escalating mass surveillance and social distancing AND THEREFORE BOTH THE BEGINNING OF THE “EPIDEMIC” AND ITS END ARE MANDATED BY ARBITRARY EDICT.
In an expanding number of countries, we are looking at medical coup. Palace revolution.
Media are blaring “coronavirus coverage” wall to wall and repressing the full picture of the economic war against the people, and its human cost. Workers living from paycheck to paycheck, laid off. Rents not paid. Businesses close. Owners go broke. Small investors lose their shirts. Savings dwindle. Public venues shut down. When schools, tourist attractions, events, businesses shut down and employees are sent home money drains away. Citizens are told ‘STAY HOME!’ All this is just the beginning of the damage…as the citizens themselves hunker down.
Hospitals in town are dealing with more and more people, who come in with minor coughs, sniffles, [many caused by seasonal allergies.—Ed.] ordinary flu, long-term lung conditions and the belief they could be infected by the virus. Doctors are under the gun; they’re forced to diagnose some of these people as “presumptive COVID cases.” That means general wards will not do—because of “the contagion factor,” such patients must be shunted into Intensive Care Units [ICU]. But there are not enough beds…
Medical edicts run the whole country.
The hordes of hysterical reports claim: “This is not politics. This is science and concern and containment and healing.”
No. This is a coup.
This is an economic war.
An attack on freedom.
The front man, "the president of the United States," is Anthony Fauci [SPECIALTY IMMUNOLOGY]. And in other countries? Read this, from Israel’s spokesman on Haaretz: ‘A lockdown and personal monitoring of people AND A TOTAL HALT TO PERSONAL FREEDOMS’.”

1) 1 Timothy 5:23 Don’t drink only water. You ought to drink a little wine for the sake of your stomach because you are sick so often.
2) Matthew 9:12 Jesus said, “Healthy people don’t need a doctor–sick people do.”

5) Isaiah 38:21; 2 Kings 20:7 Isaiah had said to Hezekiah’s servants, “Make an ointment from figs and spread it over the boil, and Hezekiah will recover.”
6) Jeremiah 51:8 But suddenly Babylon, too, has fallen. Weep for her. Give her medicine. Perhaps she can yet be healed.
7) Psalm 103:2-3 Bless the Lord, my soul, and never forget any of his benefits: He continues to forgive all your sins, he continues to heal all your diseases.
8) Revelation 22:2 It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
9)Proverbs 17:22 A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

The LORD is my light and my salvation - so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
"And Moses said to the people, 'Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will work for you today'."

National Guard Called Out to Enforce Covig Quarantine: 38 States
3-21-20, NYTimes --As of Saturday, 3/21/20 the coronavirus outbreak has prompted governors of 38 states to activate the National Guard. More than 6,500 National Guard members are aiding in the coronavirus responses also in Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. When Guard members have been deployed, the sight of camouflage-clad troops and military vehicles may cause rumors of martial law and military-enforced quarantines. So far Guard members are currently being ordered to complete tasks that are much more mundane. In some cities the Guard is unloading supplies, cleaning public buildings or decontaminate protective equipment. -->
<--However, governors have latitude to use their state or territory’s Guard members as they determine necessary. They could use troops to assist with policing... New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo wants the Army Corps of Engineers to build overflow hospitals. Bernie Sanders wants to call up the National Guard. Joe Biden says "call out the military — now." But the military isn't a cure-all, and there are significant legal and practical limits to what the armed forces can do during the coronavirus crisis. More here at Politico.com
Georgia Prison: Three Inmates Test Positive for Covig-19, Weinstein, Avenatti & Cohen Request Release
3-21-20, KESQ.com -- Three inmates have tested positive for the coronavirus in Leesburg, Georgia, raising concerns the pandemic could spread within tight prison quarters nationwide. An inmate at New York City’s Rikers Island has also tested positive. It has been speculated that -->
<-- because ‘social distancing’ is not an option for prisoners … jails could become incubators and death sentence for those incarcerated. Criminal justice advocates have also called for the release of certain nonviolent offenders, including those who may be at greater risk from the virus. High-profile inmates including Harvey Weinstein, Michael Cohen and Michael Avenatti who have asked to be released.
2-11-20, While everyone is in a panic about the coronavirus officially renamed COVID-19 by the World Health Organization [WHO], there's an even deadlier virus many people are forgetting about: the flu. The common seasonal Flu season is currently hitting its stride in the US. The CDC has estimated (based on weekly influenza surveillance data) that between:
12,000-30,000 people have died from influenza between Oct. 1, 2019 through Feb. 1, 2020
If 12,000 that's 97 deaths PER DAY
The CDC also estimates that up to 31 million Americans have caught the flu this season, with 210,000 to 370,000 flu sufferers hospitalized.

Jesus said, "Do you now believe?"
“Now we believe….” But Jesus asks:
"Do you love Me? If so, obey Me and feed My sheep ..."
2-28-20, Archives Oswald Chambers -- Indeed the hour is coming…that you…will leave Me alone” (John 16:31-32). Too many born again [John 3:3, 7] Christians have left Jesus Christ alone and yet tried to serve Him out of a sense of duty, or because they sense a need as a result of their own discernment. Often our soul has gotten out of intimate contact with God by leaning on our own "religious" understanding (Proverbs 3:5-6). This is not deliberate sin and there is no punishment attached to it; but once a person realizes how he has hindered his understanding of Jesus Christ, and caused uncertainties, sorrows and difficulties for himself, it is with shame and remorse.
Too often we've put our sense of duty on the throne of our life, instead of enthroning the resurrection life of Jesus. We are not told to “walk in the light” of our conscience or in the light of a sense of duty, but to “walk in the light as He is in the light…” (1 John 1:7).
We should get in the habit of continually seeking the Lord Jesus counsel instead of making our own decisions based on what we think is commonsense and then asking Him to bless them. When we do something out of obedience to the Lord, there can be no other explanation— just obedience.
Jesus said if we love Him, we'll obey Him [John 14:15] and He said we are to feed His sheep. [John 21.17] Jesus is coming again; hopefully all our loved ones have been 'fed' God's truths accepting, repenting and will spend eternity with Him. [John 13:36, 14:2-3] Source
A Real-Life Story of How Coronavirus Hysteria Oppresses People
California Quarantines Entire State
How Different 2020 Trump Virus is to 2009 Obama Virus
3-21-20, Robert Kirk, American Thinker* – In the USA some media commentators have noted the dishonest reporting of statistics to buttress the false claim that deaths from the coronavirus [COVID-19] are far in excess of mortality vs the common flu when in fact the opposite is likely the case. Others have noted that, like the common flu, the most vulnerable from COVID-19 is the elderly. For example the average age of those who have died in Italy is 81.
One thing is clear - the panic and hysteria are at levels never before seen or witnessed by most people alive today. It seems like a time of war. I'm a lawyer and retired prosecutor and for the past ten years I run an event/wedding photography business in California. -->
<-- I particularly enjoy photographing couples on their special day. One such couple, Nathan and MacKenzie hired me to photograph their wedding in Riverside County expecting a gathering of 130 of their family and friends at the end of March 2020. They're in their twenties not in their eighties. The venue reserved is a ten-acre oasis in California. On March 17, 2020 Nathan called saying the wedding and reception, for which all the invitations had gone out and for which they had planned for over a year, was canceled. They'd received an "Order of the Health Officer of the County of Riverside, California" stating "no gatherings of 10 or more in Riverside County". According to the decree: "Violation of ... this Order is a crime punishable by fine, imprisonment or both." Government officials and homeless bums were exempt.
Nathan & Mackenzie decided to go forward with the wedding witnessed by a small gathering of nine. The assembly being bride, groom, pastor, Mom, Dad on both sides, best man and maid of honor. No other close relatives or longtime friends would be there to share and witness one of the most momentous days of their lives.
Being a lawyer, I had to read the entire text of the order finding the totalitarian geniuses at the Riverside County Health Dept tried to include every contingency to protect the public's health and safety; -->
<-- in Paragraph 2: “It is further ordered that even for gatherings below this , if a minimum social distance of six feet between attendees cannot be maintained ... the gathering is prohibited.”
Heaven forbid their pastor at the conclusion of their vows blurted out: "Nathan, you may kiss the bride!" and he leaned within the prohibited six-foot barrier and did it! Should that violation occur with a representative of law enforcement checking in and witness the violation; would Nathan, MacKenzie and their co-conspirator pastor be arrested, fined and imprisoned for the flagrant violation of the county health officer's order!?
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that from April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, there were 60.8 million cases, 274,000 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths in the United States. The liberal/leftist/Democrat leaning 2009 media, unlike the current liberal/leftist/Democrat leaning hysterical 2020 media raised little fuss about the handling of the Swine flu event. No shutdowns of restaurants, theaters and wedding venues. No hoarding of toilet paper and canned goods. Who was the US president in 2009? It was the guy who won a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing – Democrat BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.
Yes, there's a war going on alright; but it’s not a war against the latest iteration of a virus pandemic - it's a war against what the left perceives as an existential threat: the re-election of Republican Conservative President Donald Trump!
 Rush Limbaugh: coronavirus a 'common cold' being weaponized against Pres Trump!
2-25-20, TheGuardian.com -- Rush Limbaugh conservative radio host rails at 'effort to bring down Trump.' Limbaugh said: “It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump. Now, I want to tell you the truth about the coronavirus. I’m dead right on this. The coronavirus is the common cold, folks. The drive-by media hype of this thing as a pandemic, as the Andromeda strain, as, ‘Oh, my God, if you get it, you’re dead’ … I think the survival rate is 98%. Ninety-eight per cent of people get the coronavirus survive. It’s a respiratory system virus.”
Related: Dr. Drew Pinsky said: Hysterical 'Press Needs to Shut UP! ...
3-3-20, In two separate interviews, Dr. Drew Pinsky, M.D., said the liberal media are "over-reacting" to coronavirus, do not know how to report on it, and have created a "hysteria." The "press needs to shut up," Daily Blast Live host Sam Schacher asked Dr. Drew if people were over-reacting to the news about the coronavirus. Dr. Drew replied, "Yes, yes, yes. We are not over-reacting, the press is overreacting. It makes me furious. The press should not be reporting medical stories as though they know how to report it. If we have a pandemic, I won’t know how to tell that we’re actually having a pandemic because everything is an 'emergency.' People that are infectious disease specialists, the CDC, the epidemiologists, need to take this very seriously. The press needs to shut up because you’re more likely to die of influenza right now.”

But for a few, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illnesses, including pneumonia. -->
<-- More than 121,000 people have been infected worldwide and approximately 4,300 have died.
Most people have mild flu like illness and recover in about two weeks. More severe illness may take three to six weeks depending on the condition of the patient; the elderly have been hit hardest. Shame that so many are fearful when there's little need ...
3-17-20, Federalist.com --Scientists and patients are rightly demanding answers as to why the WHO coddles dictators instead of holding them accountable and acknowledging the seriousness of the threat. The United States is the largest contributor to the WHO’s budget, in 2017 sending the agency half a billion dollars. Why did China push so hard for Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus? -->

Will We Be Ashamed When Jesus Appears?
“And now, little children, abide in Him; that, when He shall appear, we may have confidence and not be ashamed before Him at His coming.”
2-29-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- There are many glorious promises associated with the great promise that Christ Himself shall once again appear in person here on planet Earth. For example:
- Apostle Paul says: “When Christ, Who is our Life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory” (Colossians 3:4). “But now once in the end of the world hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself” (Hebrews 9:26). “Unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation” (Hebrews 9:28).
- Apostle Peter promises: “And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away” (1 Peter 5:4).
- Apostle John said: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure” (1 John 3:2-3).
- The Lord Jesus said to watch and pray: Mark 13:33, 37
These promises even now constitute an incentive for born again believers [John 3:3, 7] to purify themselves making ready for the wedding supper of the Lamb. [Matthew 25:1-13; Revelation 19:7-9]
However, there's also the sobering warning in our text associated with the soon-coming time when He shall appear. We should abide in Him (that is, continue in Him, hour after hour), careful that whatever we say, do or go, that we're in no danger of being ashamed before Him when He shall appear!
Jesus said if we love Him we'd obey Him ... [John 14:15]

Mike Rowe Joins Many Who Warn of 'Frenzied Facts'
Of the current virus called 'CORONA' or Covid-19
Frenzy & Drama Without Context
"beware of irrationally ranking Safety above everything else. I’m not an expert, and I’m in no rush to be labeled a ‘virus denier,' but I am concerned that the medicine we’re prescribing might turn out to be more deadly than the virus we’re trying to kill — especially if we don’t know the criteria by which we can re-emerge from our bunkers. We're being bombarded everyday with facts and information with extreme urgency, but no context. Imagine for a moment, if the millions of automobile accidents in America were reported with the same frenzied, up-to-the-minute drama as each new virus infection? Imagine if all 40,000 annual automotive fatalities from those accidents, were announced in the same fashion as every virus fatality [155 in US]. Would any of us ever drive again?”
“I don’t say this lightly, I have two elderly parents solidly in the ‘at risk’ group, and believe me, I want to do all I can to protect them. But I also know that Safety First is no way to live indefinitely.
"... We can’t remain in the air raid shelter indefinitely — if we do, they’ll be no country left, when we finally emerge.” More here

Democrats And Media Got us Where They Want Us
3-20-20, Canada Free Press, Judi McLeod -- Who knew that our own homes would become FEMA camps during the ‘Time of Coronavirus’? In shutting down our churches, schools, offices businesses, sporting and entertainment venues, both media and governments are telling folk that sheltering at home will keep them safe during the so called "pandemic." Who’s looking out for the countless elderly at home alone who are the prime victims of this virus killing most of America's 155 ?
How many of Pres Trump supporters that Mrs Clinton called "deplorables" are thinking that they (the media-allied Democrats) have finally got them where they want them: at home alone with nothing much better to do than watching cable television? Halt Trump's rallies they cry !! All Hillary’s deplorables should be experts on COVID-19 by now because of the saturation coverage on all television networks, including FOX.
Do you get the feeling we are caught in the middle of a gigantic, global social experiment whose goal is to measure the power of panic? To assess how quickly fear can frighten society into stampeding away from its current habitat? To gauge how far that terrified society will thunder to ease its roiling angst? To evaluate who and what we are willing to trample in our blind rush to secure safe sanctuary?
Pick a theme (Climate Change, Covid-19)
- Raise the alarm. Raise the alarm. Raise the alarm.
- Agitate, generate fear until panic triggers the stampede.
- Shame the stragglers into following.
- Offer the solution that guides the herd to safety. (exploit the panic)
- Claim success when disaster, real or imagined, is averted.
Climate Change panic is causing us to destroy our ability to produce efficient and affordable energy, endangering the energy grid needed to power civilization, throwing hundreds of thousands out of work, and causing social havoc. For future, if not dubious, environmental gains.
The current hysteria of the virus Covid-19 panic is causing society to shut down in front of our eyes. Our entire way of life is being upended, if not suspended. The difference between it and Climate Change is merely the speed with which we are willing to pay a price. More here and here

About Social Security - Understanding the way it's funded
3-20-20, Social Security was created on August 14, 1935 under Dem Pres Franklin Roosevelt and has been controversial since its beginning. Cato Institute compared it to Otto vonBismarck’s welfare state in Germany, calling it a “Ponzi scheme, with new contributions used to pay earlier ‘investors.'” In 1937, 53,236 beneficiaries received benefits of $1.3 million, while in 2012 56,758,185 retired workers, dependent family members and survivors did. Social Security is funded by workers and their employers from their wage tax; today contributing 7.65% from their paychecks to FICA - EMPLOYERS MATCH IT. The percentage has risen steadily from beginning ...
Whoopee Seniors get an average $39 cost of living increase in Social Security first in Seven Years!
8-4-19, MarketWatch -- You might have heard that Social Security checks are going up 2.8%, the biggest rise in seven years. That translates into an average benefit of $1,461 a month, up $39. If you’re an average, single middle income earner and retire at age 62 you’ll get $17,532 from Social Security next year. The government has warned that it'll slash Social Security by 21% come year 2034... Many of today's taxpayers object or resent old folks receiving any money as they misunderstand the source of it - NO TAX PAYER FUNDS ARE INVOLVED ... they too, one day will be receiving the 'benefit' from their contributions to FICA ...
In 1937 the percentage of the FICA tax was just 1% of the first $3,000 earned ... today in 2020 it's 7.65% of $137,700. It's risen for inflation; but the benefit to recipients rarely rises. Sickening!

Curiously, ... a pandemic would be quite useful because your hospital would work because these people would be taken out of the system.”
