Nationalism is the idea that a nation must put its own interests first. And the spread of the Chinese virus around the world is proving once again that American nationalism is a good idea.
President Trump, along with American conservatives, have been advocating nationalism for decades. Today it is called the America First policy.
Nationalism is a good concept because the people of a nation like the United States are concerned about keeping their own nation strong and are best equipped to know how to do it. And then, like building blocks, strong individual nations build a strong world.
If each nation deals with the Chinese virus in its own interest, then the world will overcome it. If the world waits for globalist government bureaucrats to give the orders then we will all die since these bureaucrats do not want to solve problems but to exploit them for their own personal and political ends.
A crucial element of nationalism is to have secure borders. We conservatives have been warning for years that uncontrolled illegal immigration not only can import bad people but can bring in dangerous diseases too.
This virus is proving that we need to control our borders and president Trump did so when he stopped all flight to and from China on January 31. That step alone probably has saved thousands of American lives already.
Remember the essential fact: The virus came from a dirty country called China, and its filthy communist leaders covered it up, and so it spread to the whole world…
And don’t think for a second that these communists didn’t possibly spread this virus intentionally to the US and Europe to destroy us.
We need to bring our manufacturing home from China. It is a hostile state that has been stealing from us for decades.
China must pay reparations to the world for this crisis. $10 trillion would be a good start.
And we must expel all Chinese nationals from the US. They are all communist spies. The only people who get to leave China are communist party members. They are here to steal us blind.
It is time for us Americans to take care of ourselves. Fortunately we have a president who has been doing so since the day he was inaugurated and will continue to so until he leaves office in January 2025.
A Fine Patriot has Passed Away
Former Republican US senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has passed away. A trained medical doctor, a patriot and a legendary fiscal conservative, Coburn succumbed to cancer at age 72.
God bless the senator for his excellent service to our nation.
Ex-Prince and Princess Settle in… USA??!!
Prince Harry and his wife have settled in California. Breitbart News reported:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex — also known as Prince Harry and his Hollywood wife Meghan – have left Canada behind and moved permanently to California, UK media reports said Friday.
The Royal couple flew by private jet from Canada to Los Angeles last week before the border between the two countries closed because of the deadly Chinese coronavirus outbreak, the Sun newspaper reported from London.
Gee, I thought all of these celebrities wanted to flee America under Trump. What liars. Look at what else Breitbart reported:
It is thought Prince Harry is now keen to pursue his environmental mentor role while wife Meghan has never concealed her desire to restart her acting career.
Oh, so there you go. He wants to become a full-time ‘climate’ alarmist. What a lazy punk. Hollywood is the perfect place for him, with all of the other shallow actors. Notice that he fled Canada on a private jet. That is typical of how an environmental elitist always behaves.
Speaking of celebrity creeps, the father of Lady Gaga is going on a crowdsourcing page on the internet to get money to pay the workers laid off at his New York restaurant which has been closed in the Chinese virus crisis.
Yet Lady Gage is worth $320 MILLION!
Can you believe the arrogance of these liberal celebrity types?!
Virus Cases Surge in California
Perhaps you have noticed the news about the drug chloroquine, which some people have reported to have cured them of the Chinese virus within 24 hours. But suddenly the Fake News media are bad-mouthing chloroquine and two Democrat governors even have banned its use in their states.
So why we are seeing these actions after chloroquine was touted as cheap and effective?
Chloroquine was first introduced as an anti-malarial drug in 1945, while malaria and the Chinese virus have a common link – respiratory distress. There have been three personal testimonials in recent days about people who were totally cured of the virus by chloroquine.
But since president Trump said that he was hopeful about chloroquine being a cure for the virus, the Fake News media and Democrats must go the other way and disparage it in order to harm Trump.
Friends, the Fake News media indeed are the enemy of the American people. If chloroquine (also known as hydroxychloroquine) were proven 100% effective tomorrow the media would never report it since the media do not want America to come out of this crisis and they don’t want president Trump to get any credit for his leadership.
The Detroit News reported about the Democrat Michigan governor:
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs literally threatened all doctors and pharmacists in the state who prescribe or dispense hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19.
The agency’s March 24 letter warns physicians and pharmacists of professional consequences for the prescribing of hydroxychloroquine (and chloroquine). Beyond the rational recommendation against hoarding as production of this medication needs to be ramped up, the letter deviates into open threats of “administrative action” against the licenses of doctors that prescribe hydroxychloroquine.
The letter also instructs pharmacists to ignore physician orders for this medication. Due to the debate over a pharmacist’s right to refuse to fill medications that go against their religious beliefs, this could place pharmacists in the unprecedented position of being told that they must fill prescriptions that violate their “conscience (religious belief)” but must not fill prescriptions to treat COVID-19.
Even worse, the letter indicates health care providers are “required to report” their fellow physicians who are prescribing these medications. This draconian measure carries ominous Gestapo-like overtones of neighbor reporting neighbor to “authorities.”
This is sick. It appears that this drug can save thousands of lives, which Democrats don’t want to do. They want America to suffer so that Trump looks bad. Fortunately president Trump’s approval ratings on handling the Chinese virus have gone through the roof and Americans are not falling for the Democrats’ ploy.
Update: Michigan resident Jim Santilli posted this on Facebook before Whitmer’s ban:
On March 18th, I had a sudden onset of severe respiratory and cardiac issues. I immediately went to the hospital and they did a COVID-19 test. Despite my test being marked as a priority, I did not receive the test results until the evening of March 22nd. While waiting for the test results in the hospital, my breathing continued to worsen as treatment was received. Without having the COVID-19 test results, the wonderful and hard-working doctors basically have their hands tied as certain medications (i.e. steroids, etc.) can potentially make COVID-19 worse. On the morning of March 21st, I was not doing well and it was a major struggle to breathe. Feeling like I was slowly drowning, I honestly believed I would not live to see midnight. The x-ray that morning also showed my condition was worsening, including some collapsing in the lungs. Luckily, the infectious disease physicians decided to try a non-approved, experimental combination (Hydroxychloroquine and Azithromycin). This is the same treatment President Donald Trump recently mentioned at a press conference and continues to be attacked for. After my first dose, I had a major improvement. My gasping for air stopped, and I was in tears of happiness due to having hope restored. I finally felt I would beat COVID-19 and it was no longer beating me. On March 22nd, I remained about the same. However, March 23rd brought a significant improvement. I continued to recover and was miraculously able to go home on March 24th to continue the treatment.
Meanwhile The Los Angeles Times reported:
It begins each day in the early afternoon: Patients stream into hospitals with fevers, shakes, chills and breathing problems. In Italy, the country hardest hit by the new coronavirus, it’s been happening seemingly like clockwork.
“It’s really hard to see so many people sick at the same time,” Dr. Roberto Cosentini, a doctor in the northern city of Bergamo near Milan, said in a podcast for emergency room physicians. “It’s like a regular daily earthquake.”
Is this what’s in store for California?
More than 3,100 cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed in the Golden State and 67 people have died of the respiratory disease. That’s a far cry from the 74,000 cases and 7,500 deaths reported in Italy.
But health officials here have hinted that it’s possible.
“We are in a grave crisis,” warned Dr. Scott Morrow, San Mateo County’s health officer. “Unless everyone does their part and follows the county’s shelter-in-place order and the governor’s Safer at Home order, we will be facing an Italy-type catastrophe very soon,” he said in a statement released Monday night.
In nearby San Francisco, Dr. Grant Colfax, director of the Department of Public Health, is bracing for a surge in hospitalized patients within the next week or two. “The worst is yet to come,” he said.
California’s first coronavirus infection was confirmed in late January, and COVID-19 cases and deaths have been climbing exponentially since the beginning of March.
On Wednesday, county officials across California announced 537 new cases of coronavirus infection; the previous Wednesday, there were only 140 new cases. Likewise, on Wednesday, 13 new deaths were reported across the state; the previous Wednesday, there were three new deaths.
The reason that California is seeing this surge in the Chinese virus is three-fold:
*California is a left-wing open-borders state. Third World diseases like typhus, and even leprosy, have been spreading in California for years. And these diseases were brought in by illegal immigrants.
It is well-known that tens of thousands of Chinese have flown into Mexico over the last few years to enter the US, and particularly California, through its porous border. It is also known that illegal immigrants concentrate in poor communities that are unhealthy to begin with and so the huge numbers of illegals in California are probably incubating the virus and many other Third World diseases.
*California has a large and aggressive homeless population that is surely spreading the virus. And there is no way for the state of California to control these people. After all, California has been coddling them for years. These homeless are going to do whatever they wish.
*California’s elder political stateswoman, Democrat US senator Dianne Feinstein, has had close ties to communist China for decades; Feinstein and her husband have benefited enormously from deals made in China. Many people in California are closely linked to international business in China. And left-wingers in California are sympathetic to communist rule in China.
Therefore Californians would have little inclination to warn against the virus’ origins in China for reasons of political correctness. One virologist in Italy said that the virus was made much worse there since leftists in the Italian government and media would not name China as the source and thus would not suspend Chinese flights into the country or single out the Chinese population in Italy for the crisis.
This defense of China is happening in the US media. A CNN host cut off Trump advisor Peter Navarro on-air. Here is the exchange;
Navarro said, “We all as a country got dealt a bad hand by China.”
The CNN host snapped: “Uh, Peter! That is just a waste of time to say that. I’m going to leave it there Peter Navarro.”
Navarro tried to interject, but the CNN host abruptly ended the segment saying, “that’s just ridiculous.”
So all in all, there is a very toxic brew of political and left-wing conduct that would allow the Chinese virus to flourish in California and across the US. It is called liberalism.
In fact most of California’s problems are linked to its radical political tendencies. For instance environmentalists have stopped loggers for decades from entering California forests to do any cutting, clearing or forest management. This has allowed the forests to build up a huge stock of old and dead trees that have caught fire repeatedly and caused enormous damage. One study said that there are 129 million dead trees in California forests.
Trump Calls Out Dire Virus Predictions
President Trump recently expressed skepticism that the worst-case coronavirus scenarios would come to pass. He said “I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be.”
“I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators,” Trump said in a reference to Democrat New York governor Andrew Cuomo’s claim that the state needed 30,000 ventilators.
“You know, you go into major hospitals sometimes and they’ll have two ventilators and now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?'”
Good for president Trump who is trying to offer an optimistic view. He is a calm head in a world where Democrats and the media are seeking to whip up a frenzy about the Chinese virus. And this frenzy sounds strangely like the ‘global warming’ frenzy that ‘greenies’ have been promoting for decades. We should not be sucked in. Panic only makes things worse.
Now look at this amazing story from Breitbart:
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo acknowledged Friday the state did have a stockpile of unused ventilators, despite his complaints the federal government was not sending enough.
Cuomo responded to a comment from President Donald Trump on Twitter that there were thousands of ventilators in New York not being used.
“Yes, they’re in a stockpile because that’s where they are supposed to be, because we don’t need them yet,” Cuomo said. “We need them for the apex, the apex isn’t here, so we’re gathering them in a stockpile.”
Cuomo’s comments demonstrate there is not an immediate shortage in ventilators in the city, despite alarming reports.
These Democrats are truly evil and dishonest. Trump also hammered a Democrat governor after he criticized the federal government’s response to the pandemic.
Trump said, “The first line of attack is supposed to be the hospitals and the local government and the states — the states themselves, We have people like (Washington state) Governor (Jay) Inslee — he should be doing more.”
Trump went on to mock Inslee as a “failed (2020) presidential candidate” who is “always complaining.”
Good for Trump. Inslee is a leftist whiner and a militant ‘global warming’ alarmist who is more concerned about what he thinks the global temperature is going to be in the year 2120 than people dying in his own state today.
