Essentially we have this: Leftists and other democrats lie, cheat, steal and murder to get what they want. Starting with the Russian revolution in 1917 (or even the French revolution in 1799*) opportunistic communists have been trying to destroy freedom and empower themselves in the name of security, hope, change, and equality and are continuing to do so even up to our day.
This whole Chinese Wuhan Coronavirus (Covid-19) overreaction and the shutdown of America must NEVER happen again. We don’t listen to lying models about the flu, global warming or climate change. We deal with it as it happens or doesn’t happen as we HAVE forever.
Freedom and liberty are always more valuable than simply existing. A free and prosperous life is worth more than living as a slave to democrats. Fools and the fearful will always exchange their freedom for a mess of potage. Our lives consist of more than eating and drinking and holing up like criminals.
I hope we have the good sense to use Hydroxychloroquine before putting any patients on a ventilator. Hydroxychloroquine with azithromycin*** is being used successfully to treat Covid-19 and is being used widely all over the world – except in New York and other large, heavily democrat-run cities. For no apparent reason Drs Fauci and Birx refuse to endorse the usage of this very abundant, inexpensive, safe and successful and preventative drug. My opinion is that they want the lock-down to continue and to get to keep showing their faces (their 15 minutes of fame) on TV every nite. It is also my opinion that the democrat leadership wants this shutdown to continue so that President Trump won’t have a great economy to run on this November.
Every year 60-80 million Americans get the flu, with 300,000# hospitalizations and 30 to 55,000 deaths. Most of the victims being elderly people with comorbidity. We’ve always said to stay home if you’re sick (most of the people I worked with did NOT), wash your hands, avoid touching your face, cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing, stay out of nursing homes if you have a fever or cough, etc. Maybe now more people will start doing this – every year!
But you DON’T take away everyone’s constitutional rights (particularly the First amendment) and act like dictators and ruin the livelihoods of tens of millions of people and add 3 Trillion dollars to the national debt and an additional 4 Trillion dollars in guaranteed loans from the Fed because the ‘experts’ claim they know the future. And you NEVER put doctors (particularly lifetime appointed bureaucrats) in charge of the nation or state or city.
This whole fiasco was allegedly to prevent 250,000 hospitalization from overwhelming the health system. What a crock. We have that many flu hospitalizations EVERY year.
Don’t listen to Chicken Little crying the sky is falling or the Boy who cried Wolf. People must trust God and fight on, not give into fear. Godless people are always fearful people. Godless people accept bondage over freedom because they are afraid of death.
Rom 8:15 For you have not received a spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Spirit of divine adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
Heb 2:14-15 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
* I maintain that the French Revolution set the stage for communism with its mottos and use of terror. Safety and equality are prominent themes still employed by democrats today. See links below.
Linked by François Fénelon at the end of the 17th century, the notions of “liberty”, “equality” and “fraternity” became more widespread during the Age of Enlightenment.
At the time of the French Revolution, “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” was one of the many mottos in use. In a December 1790 speech on the organization of the National Guards, Maximilien Robespierre** advocated that the words “The French People” and “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” be written on uniforms and flags, but his proposal was rejected.
Discarded under the Second Empire, this motto finally established itself under the Third Republic, although some people still objected to it, including partisans of the Republic: solidarity was sometimes preferred to equality which implies a levelling of society, and the Christian connotation of fraternity was not accepted by everyone.
** Maximilien Robespierre, the architect of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror, is overthrown and arrested by the National Convention. As the leading member of the Committee of Public Safety from 1793, Robespierre encouraged the execution, mostly by guillotine, of more than 17,000 enemies of the Revolution.
This motto was inscribed again on the pediments of public buildings on the occasion of the celebration of 14 July 1880. It appears in the constitutions of 1946 and 1958 and is today an integral part of our national heritage. It is found on items used by the general public such as coins and postage stamps.
*** This drug combination+, under a doctor’s care of course, has been shown helpful for severe cases of Covid-19 infection and hydroxychloroquine is safe++ (all drugs can have severe side effects in some people).
“What the hydroxychloroquine does is it modulates your immune system so it doesn’t overact. (The) body then finally catches up to the virus and knocks it out. The Z-Pak (azithromycin) is to prevent secondary infection,” he said.”

Infectious disease expert Dr. Stephen Smith told “The Ingraham Angle” Monday night that a study published last week indicating the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine showed no benefit for coronavirus patients in U.S. veterans hospitals was a “sham.”
“I’ve no idea why [University of Virginia School of Medicine opthamology professor Dr. Jayakrishna Ambati] delved into this study, which isn’t a study. It’s a sham,” Smith said. “I can’t believe anyone took this seriously. There’s not one dosage listed, cumulative or daily, of hydroxychloriquine or anthromicin. And people call this a study.”
++ Conclusions: Short-term hydroxychloroquine treatment is safe, but addition of azithromycin may induce heart failure and cardiovascular mortality, potentially due to synergistic effects on QT length. We call for caution if such combination is to be used in the management of Covid-19.
# The CDC just released the hospitalizations due to flu in 2019 as 490,000 and in 2018 as 810,000 cases. Cited at Rush Limbaugh and excerpt below.
Well, let’s look at the flu. Let’s look at hospitalizations. Are you ready for some shocking numbers? Do you want to hear some shocking numbers? During last year’s flu season, according to the CDC, 490,000 people were hospitalized due to seasonal flu. The year before that, 810,000 people were hospitalized due to the flu. The maximum number of projected hospitalizations with COVID-19 as of two days ago is 62,000. If we could handle 810,000 hospitalizations due to flu two years ago, if we could handle 490,000 hospitalizations last year, then we certainly can handle 62,000 hospitalizations due to COVID-19 this year.
