‘The Pelosi-Schumer Coronavirus Contagion’
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
Dr Anthony Fauci is now the President of the United States
3-23-20, Jon Rappoport* -- Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and infectious Diseases, Daily Beast reports: "In Dr. Fauci we Trust" -- “…as he guides the nation through the coronavirus crisis…stands at the White House with President Trump and VP Pence…introduce[s] actual truth to the coronavirus briefings…Fauci has been in charge from the start.”
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.
Not science. Not fact.
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’.”

CDC Report: How Many People Die From the Flu Each Year?
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.

A Real-Life Story of How Coronavirus Hysteria Oppresses People
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.”

3-11-20, JapanToday -- In Geneva Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO chief declares pandemic; even though for most, the coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. 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? -->

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.

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!

3-6-20, DailyMail.co.uk -- June Andrews is a professor in dementia studies, serving for years as the Dir of the Centre for Change in the Scottish govt. In the past she has been praised and recognized as one of the country’s foremost health experts. Now however, her intentions are in question as she recently said: “If you’re on the board of a care home company, a pandemic is one of things you think about as a potential damage to your business because of the number of older people it’s going to take out of the system. Curiously, ... a pandemic would be quite useful because your hospital would work because these people would be taken out of the system.”

Superfoods with powerful anti-viral properties
Such as oranges, lemons, tangerines, grapefruits, limes and pineapples, contain high amounts of vitamin C. This vitamin is essential to many body functions, including metabolism, bone development and cell repair. It also plays an important role in fortifying the immune system against diseases and viral infections. Many green, leafy vegetables contain vitamin C. These include chili peppers, thyme, parsley, spinach, kale and broccoli. (Related: Chinese doctors study vitamin C for treating coronavirus infections.)
Plain, unsweetened yogurt is rich in probiotics that improve digestion and promote a healthy gut. Some strains of probiotics also possess anti-viral effects against respiratory viruses.
Oregano – Oregano contains an anti-viral compound known as carvacrol. This compound is highly potent against the murine norovirus, a highly contagious virus that causes stomach flu in humans.
- Sage – Sage is an aromatic herb that may also be used to treat viral infections thanks to the naturally occurring chemical known as safficinolide.
- Basil – Basil contains the plant compounds apigenin and ursolic acid, which are potent against the hepatitis B virus, the herpes simplex virus and enteroviruses.
- Lemon balm – Lemon balm contains plant compounds that have anti-viral effects against bird flu.
Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is a unique plant compound found in green tea leaves that has anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties. Green tea is known to be potent against HIV, the herpes simplex virus and the hepatitis B virus.
Due to increased global travel and illegal migrants flooding the USA and other nations, viral outbreaks often pose a serious threat to public health.

THE WORLD HAS GONE MAD!
Has Almighty God Sent His Strong Delusion?
From the Holy Bible New Testament:
"For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: 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."
3-19-20, Joe Hoft -- When compared to other societal ailments, the coronavirus is receiving more attention than the common flu that clearly does more damage; but the world seems to be reluctant to focus on anything else. According to overnight updates, the number of coronavirus cases in the US now stands at:
Coronavirus cases: 22,000 with related deaths stands at 155
Common flu cases: 222,522 with related deaths stands at 22,000
By the end of this month [March 2020] America will have earmarked almost one TRILLION dollars in relief and stimulus funds for the Covig-19 Chinese corona virus. Imagine if we had invested this energy fighting drunk driving, opioid addiction and gang violence.

Women Fend Off Virus and So Should Warmer Weather
2-28-20, DW.com -- Molecular virologist at the Center for Experimental and Clinical Infection Research, Hanover, Germany, Thomas Pietschmann explains why spring really gives hope and why women have a clear advantage in the fight against the COVID-19 disease. If all goes well, with the warmer weather of spring it should kill the pathogens - and stop the spread of the virus. The coronavirus season would pass away just like the annual flu wave, which starts to ebb when winter ends. Respiratory viruses, i.e. those that spread via the respiratory tract, have a particularly easy time when the weather is cool; having greater stability at low temperatures. This is similar to food that keeps longest in the refrigerator.
How successful this fight is depends not only on the age and health of the infected person, but on his or her gender.
In the case of the coronavirus, the data shows that women have higher survival chances than men [but not transgender 'women']. At 2.8%, the mortality rate of men is significantly higher than that of women, at 1.7%. This difference can be explained by genetics. Some immune-relevant genes, for example genes that are responsible for recognizing pathogens, are encoded on the X chromosome; because women have two X chromosomes and men have only one, the female sex has an advantage here. The female sex hormone estrogen also helps women fend of viral diseases. More here
Philly Cops: "Go rob and steal all you want we cops won't stop you - you might infect us with the dreaded 'CORONA!' We signed up knowing we might get shot ... but the CORONA - that's just going too far!"
3-18-20, Italy and JAMA reports that only 3% died and all were elderly or had pre-existing conditions. One doctor said we must 'scale back this great alarm.' More here: bit.ly/2xRe3mf
The memo states: “If an officer believes that releasing the offender would pose a threat to public safety, the officer will notify a supervisor, who will review the totality of the circumstances and utilize discretion, in the interest of public safety, in determining the appropriate course of action.”
The crimes will include: all narcotics offenses, thefts, burglary, vandalism, prostitution, stolen cars, economic crimes, such as bad checks and fraud, and any existing bench warrants, she said in an internal memo obtained by the Inquirer. “The warrant will be served at a later time, as conditions dictate.”
Sounds like a plan.
Surely burglars breaking into your home will then, afterward, turn themselves in to be arrested. In any case, currently in Philly it's open season for criminals robbing stores, stealing cars, breaking into homes, and other "non-violent offenses."
I'm sure this will in no way lead to a crime wave that will make an even more dangerous city even more so.
It will however encourage businesses to shut down and empty their stock. Or get guns; except that shooting a robber isn't a non-violent offense, but the same guy breaking into a store is a non-violent offense. More here
Ancient People Remember
"Whoever is wise, let him understand these things; whoever is discerning, let him know them. For the ways of the LORD are right, and the righteous walk in them, but the rebellious stumble in them."
3-16-20, Annette -- Today I saw a three minute video of Senator Barack Obama [in 2005 here] speaking about limiting and halting illegal migrants from entering the USA - he said we need to enforce the 'rule of law!' No more is that the Democrat message. This memory is fresh in the minds of 'seasoned citizens' [aka old folks] and shows one reason why the wicked world leaders want to get rid of old people - we remember stuff. We remember the Ebola and Sars hype also [ABC News here].
- Job 12:12 "Wisdom is found with the elderly and understanding comes with long life."
- Ecclesiastes 1:18 King Solomon said, "For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow."
Recently I talked to some 20 yr olds and asked them if they know about their FICA payroll tax? Yes, knew they paid it, but didn't know the percentage [7.65%] or that it's contributed/paid [with their employer matching funds] into their own personal retirement account -- no govt money in it.
One important fact about the young voters in America; the people who are now 20 ... were 9 years old in 2009 when Obama became president. They have been fed socialist dogma for eight years in free government schools resulting in their world view. So what do they know? Only the swill that the libs/leftists have taught them.
Now with this delusion of the virus being force fed 24/7 through the leftist media and also the government ... panic has ensued  and the country is on a fast downhill slide with the elderly being targeted as a danger to the young - the UK is even considering forcibly quarantining them! Is the USA far behind if that happens? In Kentucky USA two men are being guarded by the police because they refuse to quarantine themselves.  Perhaps it's God's strong delusion? Based on the behaviors and edicts from government officials with the numbers so low; it just doesn't make any other sense. "Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders. With all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 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
Many/most Christian conservatives believe President Trump was/is a breath of fresh air - but the wicked continue with their wickedness; and any good he may do is overshadowed and now the nation is in dire straits again! We had:

According to US Commerce Dept: 95% Ibuprofen, 91% Hydrocortisone, 70% acetaminophen, 80% of the U.S. supply of all antibiotics are made in China
US Under President Bill Clinton in 2000 Made Deal With China To Import Medicine to America
10-8-18, Epoch Times -- According to a book, “China RX: Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine” by Rosemary Gibson and Janardan Prasad Singh ... Chinese drug makers have overtaken, and in some cases, put out of business, many key drug industries by undercutting competitors, stealing from competitors, and cutting corners. In the 1990s, the United States, Europe, and Japan manufactured 90 percent of the global supply of the key ingredients for the world’s medicines and vitamins. Now, 80 percent of active ingredients in medicines come from China and India. While India also makes generic drugs for the United States it, too, is dependent on China for key ingredients to make drugs such as penicillin.
China has become the primary source of many crucial medical drugs, including penicillin, heparin, and medications essential for surgeries. -->
<-- The impetus for this shift in the global supply chain can be traced back to 2000, when then-President Bill Clinton was in the final year of his second term. The White House went into overdrive to pass legislation to give China permanent normal trade relations granting the same trade advantages to China as other U.S. trading partners, including low import tariffs. This was done against public opinion, which overwhelmingly opposed the free trade deal.
Chinese drugs fail to meet U.S. quality standards that is exacerbated by the volume of imported drugs.
In 2014 under Pres Obama Dr. Margaret Hamburg 21st Comm of the U.S. Food and Drug Admin [May 2009 to April 2015] said in a speech in Beijing, the consequences of relying on China to produce vital life-saving drugs. “The risks are greater at every step in our increasingly complex global supply chain networks today. Sometimes these hazards are the result of a lack of quality control … [or] intentional acts of diversion, counterfeiting, or adulteration.”
China hints at denying Americans life-saving coronavirus drugs
3-13-20, FoxNews -- Though the United States is a global leader in research, much of the manufacturing of life-saving drugs has moved overseas. Beijing China's recent comments should concern all Americans and that China are keenly aware that in a moment of crisis when China can threaten to cut off America from pharmaceutical supplies and life saving drugs ... we are at risk in the USA.
China should use its dominance in antibiotics to reduce medical supplies to the United States
3-11-20, TheTimes.Uk.com -- A leading Chinese economist, Li Daokui delivered a veiled threat at a general meeting of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference raising the prospect of Beijing curbing its exports of pharmaceuticals as a countermeasure in the trade war with the US. By some estimates, America imports 96 per cent of its antibiotics from China.
USA policymakers worry about China 'weaponizing' drugs
12-20-19, Politico.com -- China is the world's largest producer of generic drugs. More than 90 percent of China's drugs/antibiotics are shipped to the USA. One of the biggest national security threats in the U.S.-China trade war could be to the everyday medicines taken by millions of Americans. The U.S. relies on imported medicines from China in a big way. Antibiotics, over-the-counter pain meds and more are all imported from China. -->
<-- Pres Trump & Chinese Pres Xi Jinping so far have left pharmaceuticals out of the bilateral trade war. While Trump has used national security as a rationale to slap tariffs or trade sanctions on a variety of imports, medical supplies haven’t fallen under such scrutiny.
However, the U.S. is woefully unprepared to address even minor disruptions in the supply of medicines that can be used as a weapon of war against the United States.
The hidden perils of drugs imported from China
9-3-19, President Trump has called on US industries to manufacture here at home, instead of outsourcing to China. Drug companies — which now rely on China for active ingredients that go into antibiotics, heart medicines and other drugs we need to stay alive — should be the first to respond to Trump’s plea. That reliance is a threat to national security. And the squalid conditions in many Chinese drug factories pose a health risk to Americans who have to take the medicines.

Italian Doctors Explain Mortality Rate of Weak, Sick, Elderly Patients Who Contract Coronavirus - 100% Die Without Care
"Rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren; The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity. Honor widows that are widows indeed."
Italy says almost 200 deaths [mostly elderly frail patients just left to die] from coronavirus in 24 hours
3-11-20, ITALY (WTVO) — According to NBC News, on March 11, 2020 Italy’s Civil Protection Agency said that almost 200 people died from the coronavirus in 24 hours. Representing the highest increase in deaths recorded anywhere in the world since the emergence of the virus in China in Sept 2019. Reportedly an Italian medical college has issued guidelines to doctors and medical professionals telling them to just let elderly patients die. [More here from LifeNews]
The Atlantic reports: Doctors and nurses are advised to take a patient’s overall state of health into account. Those who have preexisting health issues, are too old to have a high likelihood of recovery, or who have too low a number of “life-years” left even if they should survive, will be left to die.
This sounds cruel, but the alternative, the document argues, is no better. “In case of a total saturation of resources, maintaining the criterion of ‘first come, first served’ would amount to a decision to exclude late-arriving patients from access to intensive care.”
"Do not cast me off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength is spent." Psalm 71:9-10
Coronavirus: Italy doctors 'forced to prioritise ICU care for patients with best ch…
3-11-20, Amid a surge of corona cases, Italy's healthcare system is at breaking point, with medical staff describing chaotic conditions in health care centers. Those patients who do not survive Coronavirus depends on age and by health conditions. Doctor, Roberto Cosentini reported:
"If a person between 80 and 95 has severe respiratory failure, you probably won't proceed. If he has multi-organ failure of more than three vital organs, it means he has a one hundred per cent mortality rate. This is also a terrible sentence. But unfortunately, it is true. We are not in a position to tempt what are called miracles. It is a reality." Patients with serious preexisting health conditions are significantly more likely to die. “What might be a relatively short treatment course in healthier people could be longer and more resource-consuming in the case of older or more fragile patients.” These guidelines also apply to patients who require intensive care for other than the coronavirus, because they too make demands on the same scarce medical resources. “These criteria apply to all patients in intensive care, not just those infected with CoVid-19.” Psalm 71:9, 90:10
[Note: When my husband passed to Jesus - he was on hospice and when he had trouble breathing they gave him drugs to make him comfortable with an easy 'exit.' I hope they are doing that for these elderly and fragile patients. The article doesn't say that I could find.--Annette]

Coronavirus Strikes Men, Older People the Hardest
2-28-20, USNews.com -- In a world of 7 billion people, only 3,500 people have died from this new Corona Virus. Men have died from at nearly twice the rate as women, and the virus has been shown to sicken and kill older folks at a greater rate than young people. As of Thursday, 2-27-20 there have been roughly 83,000 confirmed coronavirus infections worldwide with appx 3,000 deaths, the Associated Press reported. [Interesting considering that the common and seasonal flu killed 20,000 Americans this year alone.]
3-11-20, Surprising the leftist, liberal elitist media & politicians care that ALMOST ALL THE people affected by this stupid Corona virus are us old folks [I'm 76]. This morning, Rush Limbaugh pointed to statistics of the voters supporting Sanders and Biden. Old folks are the greatest group supporting old Joe ... so Joe's supporters may be all killed off!! Maybe THATs why they care... how else can Joe get any real traction with Biden's candidacy for the presidency; ya think? Today, delusion rages in America.

OH NOT toilet paper too!!
People have been scared by the hysterical media and government reaction to the virus reports ...
3-5-20, TheBigSmoke.com -- It's the morning after the night before and no closer are we to understanding why the nation is hoarding toilet paper since the September 2019 report from China about their new virus 'coronavirus' aka Covig19 outbreak.
People aren’t only stockpiling toilet paper; they're also hoarding face masks, bottled water, hand sanitizer, canned goods and other non-perishable foods. People have been convinced there's terrible danger and are scared so they’re hunkering down. They’re buying what they need and one of the items is toilet paper.

China: Water Fowl Army of 100,000 Ducks Headed to Pakistan to Battle Incoming Plague of Locusts
2-27-20, Telegraph.uk -- Chinese officials are on standby to deploy an army of voracious ducks to Pakistan to help their neighbor fight locusts threatening to devour crops. At least 100,000 of the specially raised waterfowl are expected to be sent to Pakistan later this year to combat a desert locust outbreak. Chinese researchers have described the ducks as “biological weapons” and claimed...
... they can be more effective than pesticide.
“One duck is able to eat more than 200 locusts a day,” said Lu Lizhi, a senior researcher with the Zhejiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences who is in charge of the project. A trial to gauge the ducks' locust-eating prowess would begin in Xinjiang later this year. More here
Weaponizing the Coronavirus:
Why US Politicians & Media Suddenly Caring
[Hint: It’s about getting Trump!]
2-26-20, * -- After weeks of denouncing “conspiracy theories” about the spread of coronavirus, US media and Democrats are suddenly concerned, accusing President Donald Trump of not doing enough to stop it.
While over 2,000 people have died from the COVID-19 novel coronavirus – almost all in China so far – and the contagion has spread to Europe and the Middle East in recent days, there has been no spike in the number of US cases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a total of 59 Americans have tested positive for the bug – most of them among those repatriated from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, and the rest with some connection to the contagion’s epicenter in Wuhan.
Yet the newest talking points, pushed by Democrats and media NeverTrumpers alike, would have Americans believe that the virus is not contained, that Trump has gutted the government’s ability to respond to it and his administration doesn’t know what it’s doing.
This is a sudden and remarkable change of heart, for over the past several weeks the Democrats have been largely silent about the coronavirus, while the mainstream media was busily dismissing speculation about the virus as “conspiracy theories… debunked by experts” and denounced as “unjust” Trump’s decision to restrict travel to and from China. [Virus reported in Sept 2019]
Even as the Dept of Health and Human Services was arguing the exact opposite Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the CDC official overseeing the coronavirus response, announced on Tuesday, 2/25/20 that Americans should prepare for “severe” disruption of everyday life, adding that the spread of coronavirus is not a question of whether but when. “We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.” Between Dr. Messonier’s warning, amplified by nearly every media outlet, and the economic slowdown as the result of quarantines in China, on Feb 24, 2020 US stock markets went into a nosedive, wiping out all the gains since the beginning of the year.
Rogue CDC Official Pushing Coronavirus [Coincidence?]
2-25-20, ConservativeTreeHouse -- Earlier today, Tuesday, 2/25/20 Dr. Nancy Messonnier, an official in the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), held a conference call with media and pushed a panic narrative around the Coronvirus that ran counter to the Trump administration.. What makes the statements by Dr. Messonnier even more interesting is the fact she is the only sister of former DOJ Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Dr. Messonnier is the sister of former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the official who oversaw the ‘Russiagate’ probe by special counsel Robert Mueller and signed one of the FISA warrant applications for spying on the Trump campaign – clearly insinuating there might have been a political motivation behind her alarmist remarks on Tuesday. Ya think??
Whatever the truth about the coronavirus might be, what is abundantly clear from all of this is that America has a serious case of political contagion, in which nothing – not even a legitimate public health emergency – can avoid being weaponized for political purposes by people lusting for power. It would be laughable, if it weren’t so life-threatening.

"The world has never quite seen an event like the one unfolding now off the coast of eastern Japan, in which thousands of tons of radioactively contaminated water from the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are pouring directly into the ocean. And though the vastness of the ocean has the capacity to dilute nuclear contamination, signs of spreading radioactive material are being found off Japan, including the discovery of elevated concentrations of radioactive cesium and iodine in small fish several dozen miles south of Fukushima, and high levels of radioactivity in seawater 25 miles offshore."

Japan: Disabled Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant's Radioactive Waste Plan of Disposal into Pacific Ocean Approved
The Japanese fishing industry is strongly against releasing the contaminated water into the Pacific Ocean as it will affect area fisheries. Greenpeace Japan also criticized the panel’s recommendation since the ocean dump will certainly threaten the environment. Shaun Burnie, a nuclear specialist at Greenpeace Germany, explained that the suggestion to dump the radioactive water into the Pacific makes no sense. “There is no justification for additional, deliberate radioactive pollution of the marine environment or atmosphere.”
A closer look at METI’s proposal reveals that the first step of the ocean dumping is to lower the concentrations of nuclear material in the radioactive water via a multi-nuclide removal system. The next step is to purify the remaining radioactivity with water annually, after which the waste will be discharged and dumped into the Pacific. There's a lack of verified scientific data proving that the concentrations of the 200 or so varieties of nuclear material leaked by theFDNPP disaster are within permissible thresholds. There are even reports that both the Japanese government and TEPCO acknowledge their failure to control some of the radioactive material, such as tritium. More here

Snopes.com says the reports of the FDNPP reactor meltdown is false - why is it false? Because not 'in process' of melting down - HAS ALREADY MELTED DOWN. Snopes said: "Since the end of 2013, a hoax has been going around on the Internet saying that Reactor #3 is experiencing a meltdown. (In fact, it had already melted down some time earlier.) From my observation, this mess started with an article on Enenews saying that Reactor #3 had been observed still steaming multiple times in December, which is correct. However, “steam” has been observed issuing from that reactor beginning in July 2013, and since then it has been observed almost every day. From the frequency of the “steam,” I assume it is evaporated coolant water leaking out of primary containment vessel, and we’re seeing it now because TEPCO has removed the major debris from the top of the reactor. Probably the steam has been coming up since just after [the earthquake of] March 2011. Sure it’s extremely radioactive, nobody can stand on the top of reactor #3, and it’s harmful for the west coast. However, it’s been that way for 3  years now." -- 2/25/20
