Definitely worth the read: Oath Keepers Coronavirus Warning and Advice on How to Protect Yourself

 Via Stewart


 Japan and Vietnam have closed down all schools and no children are going to school in either nation.  Nations do not shut down all schools over the flu or colds.  A school in Washington State has now been closed. 
UPDATE 2/28/20 12pm Central: We now consider this to be an aerosol (airborne) virus, meaning that it can travel extended distances in the air and linger in the air over time, in enclosed spaces, and infect people who breath the air, just like measles, smallpox, and tuberculosis.  This makes it extremely contagious.  See below analysis.UPDATE 2/28/20 12pm Central: We now consider this to be an aerosol (airborne) virus, meaning that it can travel extended distances in the air and linger in the air over time, in enclosed spaces, and infect people who breath the air, just like measles, smallpox, and tuberculosis.  This makes it extremely contagious.  See below analysis.

The Coronavirus (Covid19) has become a political football in the United States.  Predictably, Democrats are using it to attack President Trump (they will do so no matter what he does).   But that doesn’t mean it’s not a dangerous virus.

We consider Coronavirus a serious potential threat to your health and to the health of loved-ones because of how contagious it is, because it can be transmitted while the carrier is asymptomatic, and because of the way it attacks the lungs, which is more severe than the flu.  It’s especially deadly for the elderly and for those with preexisting conditions, such as respiratory problems or cardiovascular disease, for whom the death-rate climbs in excess of 8% and as high as 15% (see below analysis).  We also consider the virus a serious threat to our nation because its spread in the U.S. will likely cause serious disruptions in travel, work, school, the delivery of food, medical supplies, medical services, fuel, etc., and will cause a resultant downturn in the economy.

Please note that Saudi Arabia shut down the pilgrimage to Mecca, preventing millions of Muslims from taking planned pilgrimages (we cannot recall this ever happening before), and also banned all travel to the Kingdom by anyone with a tourist visa from one of the infected nations, such as Italy or South Korea.

Here in the U.S., it is long past time to do as Saudi Arabia has done.  Breitbart has reported that a Los Angeles based flight attendant, who worked flights from South Korea to the U.S., has just been diagnosed with Coronavirus.  President Trump needs to stop air traffic to the U.S. from all nations where pandemics are underway, such as South Korea, Italy, or Japan – not just from China.  Frankly, because the virus has now spread extensively in the rest of the world, he should stop all foreign entry into the U.S., and returning U.S. citizens should be quarantined.   He should also deploy our military onto our southern border in sufficient force to lock it down to prevent all illegal entry.  Better safe than sorry!  Let’s take “America first” seriously and act accordingly.

Japan and Vietnam have closed down all schools and no children are going to school in either nation.  Nations do not shut down all schools over the flu or colds.  A school in Washington State has now been closed.  We urge you to set aside politics, take a hard look at facts, and encourage President Trump to do what is necessary.  Whatever impact further restrictions on international air traffic to the U.S. may have on our economy will be child’s play compared to the cascading economic effects of millions of Americans halting travel within the U.S., pulling kids from school, and missing work from fear of becoming ill, or from being ill.

Below are write-ups by two of Oath Keepers’ veteran medical professionals explaining why you should take this seriously, citing information from trusted, neutral medical experts.  Following those write-ups are some recommendations for individual preparedness in case you need to shelter in place for extended periods, and a final write up by one of our Utah chapter leaders.

  1. I've always said, the only thing we have to fear is over-reaction by brainless government bureaucrats. They get scared so they shut down neighborhoods, businesses, and normal life for everyone. With no cause. Just like after 9-11 the government nearly bankrupted us air carriers by grounding everyone and contrary to law proclaimed a shootdown policy against civilian airlines.

    Coronavirus is not even close to being as serious as the common flu, that kills 15 thousand people in the usa every year. And no schools close. No theaters shut their doors. No internet pundits tell everyone to prep for TEOTWAWKI.

    1. Thanks and when Vietnam closed it's schools, I immediately thought they did this instead of banning tourists. Filthy lucre triumphs again.

  2. One of the most important things is to enhance one's immune system. Particularly at this time of year, "flu season" (low sunlight exposure) supplement with Vitamin D3 which is critical to strong immunity. Also Vitamin C and minerals like magnesium, zinc and iodine typically deficient in most people's diets. Yet, even though they mention the precautions there is NOTHING in the media about this!! Why is that?? --Ron W

    1. Not enough money in it, I guess.

    2. Well, not much money in hand washing and covering cough and sneezes. But I think you have a point Brock. The big media has huge ad money from Big Pharma and the FDA decrees that only a drug can be advertised to "prevent, treat or cure" a disease. So I guess they can't even report or advise nutritional information. Medicines have their place, but this is medical fascism--and insanity. But I'm taking 5-10,000 I. u.'s of Vitamin D a day, 1000 mg of C and my usual mineral supplements, especially those I mentioned in my previous post. I'm no doctor, but doctors are mostly trained in treating conditions with drugs and surgery, which is good, but not in maintaining and enhancing health. It's something in which I've educated myself for many years and it works. I guess if you don't charge for information, people think it isn't any good-- but I still share. --Ron W

  3. Dr. Sircus says to dab iodine around nasal passages and rinse
    your mouth with it.

    2. Damn if I know but I think they consider that I have a compromised system. Thanks.

    3. Just remembered it's a 'compromised immune system.'
