China expert: Coronavirus could lead to collapse of Communist Party

 Via Billy

The Chinese Communist Party's secretive handling of the coronavirus could lead to its collapse in the same way that the Chernobyl nuclear disaster contributed to the Soviet Union's demise, an expert on China said Friday.

Gordon Chang said in an interview with Just The News at the Conservative Political Action Conference, in Washington, D.C., that people in China are talking about Chernobyl.

The secrecy surrounding the 1986 disaster led to the failure of the Soviet Union within a half decade, he noted.

"Maybe we're starting to see the same dynamic now," he said. "But the Communist Party certainly is weakened, and it's fighting to keep itself in place."

Richard Grenell, the ambassador to Germany, is acting director of national intelligence, but President Trump intends to nominate Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) to become its permanent head. The president tweeted the announcement Friday afternoon.

“I am pleased to announce the nomination of Rep. Ratcliffe (Congressman John Ratcliffe) to be Director of National Intelligence (DNI),” Trump tweeted. “Would have completed process earlier, but John wanted to wait until after IG Report was finished. John is an outstanding man of great talent!”

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.

Brazil’s Eduardo Bolsonaro: ‘Globalists Are Trying to Delete Our History’

“In Brazil, black slavery ended in 1888. After that, we started to receive in Brazil workers to [replace] the black slaves. It was a time when, in Brazil, we were receiving people from Italy, Germany, Spain, and usually they were poor European people,” he said. “But when they arrived in Brazil at the time, they kept their culture, and they didn’t try to change the culture of Brazil. The difference is that nowadays we are receiving people and they want to force us to have their same culture, and this is how we start all of the fights. And sometimes what you see is the globalists blaming us because of these conflicts when, at the end of the day, it is not up to us, it is up to them that they are coming in[to] our country.”
Congressman Eduardo Bolsonaro of Sao Paulo – a Brazilian conservative and the son of President Jair Bolsonaro, explained to Breitbart News Daily host Matthew Boyle on Friday that leftists and globalists have launched an assault on the culture of Brazilians as they have against peoples of many other countries.

Bolsonaro spoke to Boyle on Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily live from the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC. Bolsonaro, elected to Brazil’s Congress with the highest number of votes in history, is attending the conference in part as a representative of the burgeoning conservative movement in his country that brought his father to power last year after over a decade of socialist rule. The elder Bolsonaro won the presidency on a campaign of family values, individual freedom, and divorcing Brazil from malevolent international forces such as the governments of China and Venezuela.

Bolsonaro noted to Boyle that Brazil has a rich history of immigration and that its diversity is “a very good thing,” but the state has a responsibility to prevent “terrorists and bad guys” from exploiting the immigration system. He also noted that many of today’s immigrants, unlike those of the past, have begun insisting that Brazil adapt to their culture rather than respecting their host country’s identity.

The Transparent Nonsense of the Russia Hoax

 No thoughtful person can believe the transparent nonsense of the Democrat Party’s continuing versions of the Russia Hoax. President Donald Trump is not a good thing for Vladimir Putin and his ambitions for Russia. China and North Korea would also probably like to work with a more compliant U.S. leader. Trump’s competitive actions in foreign policy, military power, and the primacy of U.S. national security are written in huge bright letters across our skies. Only ideological slaves and hirelings, know-nothings, and dimwits are blind to it. But the Democrats continue to insult the intelligence of everyone, even their own voters, by pushing one of the most incredibly transparent lies in American political history as a main campaign theme.

‘NEW LEVEL OF SICKNESS’: Donald Trump Jr. Blasts Democrats For Hoping Coronavirus Crisis Hurts President

Via Billy

“A REMINDER: Please contact everyone you know. On Monday, March 2nd, there is an Economic Shutdown. #Shutitdown. It’s easy,” she wrote in an Instagram post.

“DO NOT SPEND ANY MONEY ON ANYTHING ANYWHERE. our goal is to cause a $238.2 billion dollar blip on the federal government’s records.”

Leaders of the Democratic Party have ripped President Trump for his administration’s response to the coronavirus, but Donald Trump Jr. says he’s not surprised at their rhetoric.
“Not at all,” he said on Fox News. “I mean, we’ve seen — like you said, we’ve seen this play out for four years. Anything that they can use to try to hurt Trump, they will. Anything he does in a positive sense, like you heard from the reporter that was just suspended from ABC, they will not give him credit for. The playbook is old at this point.

Chinese Reds Set a Trap for Trump

Keep an eye on those "experts," Mr. President 

 President Trump is in a difficult situation. If he were to disclose circumstantial evidence that the coronavirus virus is a Chinese bioweapon, there would be calls for retaliation against the Communist regime. Such a declaration could lead to more fear, the threat of war, and perhaps a global economic collapse. As it is, the virus is causing a market meltdown. He does not want to contribute to a panic and further collapse. 

Politically, his reelection hangs in the balance. (Because it's all Trumps fault.......😏)

Aside from Senator Tom Cotton, China experts such as Steven Mosher and Gordon Chang, and the newspaper The Epoch Times, few people in politics or the media are asking the hard questions about whether the virus is a weapon of war.

But the evidence is available for those who take the time to review the facts.

Democratic Virginia Senator Admits to Retaliating Against Sheriffs Who Supported Sanctuary Movement & ‘Enforce or Resign’ Says New Mexico Governor to Sheriffs Regarding New Red Flag Law


The Democratic Majority Leader of the Virginia State Senate admitted over the weekend to blocking a pay raise for Virginia sheriffs for their support of the Second Amendment sanctuary movement.

Sen. Richard “Dick” L. Saslaw told Republican Senator Bill Stanley after a floor session that the Democrats had blocked the three percent pay raise because, according to Sen. Stanley’s recollection, “they came to our committees and said that they weren’t going to enforce our laws.”

Stanley made the allegation in a Facebook post, and Saslaw admitted to the retributive move in an interview with local media.

Only a few weeks away: Israel Makes ‘Exciting Breakthrough’ In Race For Coronavirus Vaccine

 An Israeli scientist works at a laboratory at the MIGAL Research Institute in Kiryat Shmona in the upper Galilee in northern Israel on February 27, 2020. - After 4 years of multi-disciplinary research funded by Israels Ministry of Science and Technology in cooperation with Israels Ministry of Agriculture, MIGAL has achieved a scientific breakthrough that will lead to the rapid creation of a vaccine against Coronavirus. This possibility was identified as a by-product of MIGALs development of a vaccine against IBV (Infectious Bronchitis Virus), a disease affecting poultry, whose effectiveness has been proven in pre-clinical trials carried out at the Veterinary Institute. MIGAL has now made required genetic adjustments to adapt the vaccine to COVID-19, the human strain of Coronavirus, and is working to achieve the safety approvals that will enable in-vivo testing, enable the initiation of production of a vaccine to counter the Coronavirus epidemic currently spreading throughout the world, which so far has claimed 2,666 lives.
 “Let’s call it pure luck,” Katz said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”
Israeli scientists are reportedly only a few weeks away from having developed the first vaccine to combat the coronavirus, which originated in China, and could have the vaccine available 90 days after that.

“Congratulations to MIGAL [The Galilee Research Institute] on this exciting breakthrough,” Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis said, according to The Jerusalem Post. “I am confident there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat,” Akunis said, referring to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

CDC Official Helping Spook Trump's Economy with Coronavirus Fears Is Rod Rosenstein's Sister

Via Billy

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein holds a discussion on "Defending Rule of Law Norms," focusing on the contrast between the United States and China at The Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., on Feb. 25, 2019.

An intriguing connection related to one of America’s top health officials at the center of the national discussion over the potential severity of the coronavirus in America has some wondering about a conspiracy, while others find only a coincidence.

Fears that the coronavirus will have devastating impacts beyond those already being registered around the globe have triggered a major Wall Street selloff. President Donald Trump has pushed back against the culture of panic.

But is there a political tinge to the pronouncements? Speculation that there could be rose after it was discovered that the health official making dire pronouncements about the impact of the coronavirus contrary to those offered by Trump is connected to another high-profile individual who was often at odds with the president — former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
