The "China Virus"

March 18, 2020 |

I told you Tuesday about the New York Times reporter who lifted President Trump’s words of context (“Try getting it yourselves”) to make it appear that he told state Governors that they were on their own when it came to obtaining medical equipment to deal with the COVID-19 virus. Here is what he actually said:

“We are backing you in terms of equipment and getting what you need. Also, though, respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment, try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point-of-sale is much better, much more direct if you can get it yourselves.”

Trump himself seems to be so fed up with the media’s endless attempts to undermine, attack, second-guess, badmouth and misquote everything he’s says and does to keep Americans safe that he used part of his coronavirus update press conference yesterday to call out the Times for its deliberately misleading story, which he quite accurately described as “false,” “bad journalism” and “totally disgraceful.”

I expect tomorrow’s headline in the Times to read, “Trump Response ‘Totally Disgraceful.’”

Trump also blasted that PC idiocy about the term “China virus” being racist (as Dan Bongino pointed out during our joint appearance on “Hannity” last night, China isn’t a race, it’s a country.) “China Virus” or “Wuhan virus” (which I’ve heard is actually what they call it in Wuhan) is no more “racist” than the terms Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever or Ebola virus, which was first identified in a village near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/17/politics/trump-china-coronavirus/index.html

Trump very pointedly called it the “China virus,” and explained why. He said for the US media to accept and spread China’s propaganda that it’s racist to associate it with its real place of origin deflects responsibility away from China and makes it easier for them to spread the lie that the US military created it. He said, “It did come from China. So, I think it's a very accurate term.” Asked by a reporter (of course) if that didn’t create a “stigma,” he replied:

"I don't think so. I think saying that our military gave it to them creates a stigma.”

I have never been so proud to be a Trump supporter than at that moment.

Besides, if any nation on Earth deserves to be "stigmatized," it's communist China. The real mystery is why in the world the media are so eager to carry water for the totalitarian Chinese government, which is antithetical to everything they claim to support. China has hidden vital information about COVID-19 that could help other nations know what they’re dealing with (and continues to do so), it allows unconscionable slave labor conditions, it’s the biggest polluter in the world, it’s aggressively militaristic, it's genuinely racist, it has no tolerance for freedom of religion or speech, it uses the Internet to monitor and control its own people, it “disappears” officials who criticize its actions…

https://www.westernjournal.com/chinese-lies-coronavirus-get-exposed-another-government-critic-vanishes/

…And what makes the US media’s shilling for China even more inexplicable is its hostility to the media. Just this week, Western reporters trying to cover the virus at a Chinese hospital had their cameras and cell phones confiscated and wiped, and reporters from three major US newspapers were expelled. One of those papers was even the New York Times!

https://www.westernjournal.com/china-expels-journalists-major-us-publications/

Yet the Times and other Western outlets would trust China and unquestioningly repeat its bogus talking points while attacking and aggressively questioning everything that our own President and his team of America’s top medical experts tell them. Are they THAT dependent on the Chinese market to stay in business? Or is it just more proof that the most virulent disease plaguing America is not some virus from China but Trump Derangement Syndrome?

The latest news on the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is that the worldwide infection rate has reached 200,000 cases with 8,000 deaths, and there are now cases reported in all 50 US states. The nations with the most cases are China, Italy, Iran, Spain and Germany, and the most confirmed deaths have been in China, Italy, Iran, Spain and France.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/coronavirus-200000-cases-death-toll-8000-johns-hopkins

Those most at risk are the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions such as lung and cardiovascular disease. Here’s some good information on how to protect seniors from contracting it.

    Yes Governor our President is being constantly trashed by the media, he also has a lot of snakes around him who feed him a bunch of lies. My heart goes out to him. I feel the media produced this hype and the panic and this fits perfectly into the deep state agenda. And, in the end it is all in God's hands.

    I continue to be appalled regarding the idiocy of the "left"..who aren't "RIGHT" and have fled the sanity room. I STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP

  • Robert Carter

    03/18/2020 02:58 PM

    Perhaps this would be the ideal moment for the President, during one of the heavily attended new conferences, to make a statement to the effect that the American people - and the world - have, for the past few weeks, taken and submitted to extreme measures to defeat this threat to human life, because we as God's people so value human life that we will whatever is necessary to preserve it. And then say - "And, it occurred to me that that the other severe threat to human life was not defeated when in 1973, the Supreme Court made a decision to allow mass killing of viable human beings. That just doesn't make any sense at all. I really wish the SCOTUS would re-examine that decision, especially considering what we are presently doing today to preserve human life, world-wide.

  • Mackie Braden

    03/18/2020 02:56 PM

    Governor Huckabee thank you so much for your comments and explanations. You really need to provide more of these comments often to a puzzled population that can’t believe the we have journalists who won’t play it straight on a serious subject as our health.

  • Terri L French

    03/18/2020 02:54 PM

    I praise President Trump in all his effort that he is doing. The dang Media needs to be shutdown for 14 day and maybe just maybe people will calm down. It’s a crying shame that these politicians (Especially the Democrats) can’t let President Trump do what he needs instead of blaming him for things he hasn’t done. They need really need to be voted out of office. Again Thank you President Trump for putting the people first trying to make America great again! I’ll back President Trump for the next 8 years if possibles

    From Terry James, The Real Pandemic, just a snippet of his column:
    These changes we’re witnessing, experiencing, and enduring aren’t Bible prophecy being fulfilled, but rather, are setting the stage for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

    The first of these world orders is the one Antichrist will rule. It will ultimately be created out of the geopolitical turmoil going on at this moment in history. This turbulence—fomented by Satan, with the United States presidency and the American nation at the epicenter—is generating the current economic earthquake.

    The coronavirus hoopla is being used masterfully by Satan and his minions in high places to try yet again to bring this US president down. This must be done in order to get the globalist juggernaut back on track.

    This is in no way saying that I take this disease lightly. I agree with my good friend Eric Barger of Take a Stand Ministries, who recently wrote the following:

    There is no question that COVID-19 is deadly. There is also no question that some in the media are manipulating this story dramatically as they report on it. Objective reporting is hard to find these days but instead of calling out some of the politicians on the left—who've chosen to politicize an epidemic—their allies in the media are choosing to just chime in! Both pundits and political hacks alike apparently just can't wait to attempt scoring the cheapest of points against the president. It is frankly unconscionable, but, as expected, it appears that nothing whatsoever is off limits for these partisans.

    The old serpent has chosen to create the perception of a worldwide spread of a relatively common virus to bring the peoples of the world together. Fear is the ingeniously devilish nucleus around which the globalist cabal has wrapped its plans to get things back to normal, in a perverted model of normalcy.

    The true virus infecting the world is SIN.

    I’m so glad Trump is President. He runs government like a business. Why reporters are all vying for the “Trip Trump Up Trophy” is so annoying and juvenile. Glad President Trump has assembled a team who are cooperative and getting results on a pandemic that is tragic. I’m 81 and staying inside so I don’t burden society in this tragic time of Wuhan virus infection. God bless our President who isn’t afraid to speak the truth.

    I am so glad that President Trump is in the White House. He is surrounding himself with very capable people to lead us out of this crisis. I can't think of another President with such strong leadership skills with the exception of possibly President Reagan. I am in awe of his ability to fight for the American people in the face of attacks by the driveby media. Who does the driveby media serve? Slander and bias are not part of journalism. I pray for President Trump and his family, Vice President Pence and his family and the people working side by side with the President. I pray for Wisdom and Fortitude for all of them. Please Lord keep them in your care.

    Well said! It is the wuhan virus! and that biological lab there where it got out from was paid for and built from the Bill Gates get foundation under Barack Obama! It was created in China and let out of China so they could come up with vaccines I don’t know if it was intentional or not but it got out there! And then they tried to blame it on her local exotic food market . Then they destroy the market because I know the evidence will show it didn’t create their. It was created in that lab!

    I have repeatedly questioned actually on occasion accused the media to be influenced by Communist China thru donations of money or direct or partial ownership of these propaganda outlets as CNN MSNBC and the MSM as it continue's to lash out at our President. If you were China what would you do? If I am a Communist I would create a foreign country to make it look like it was meddling in our elections or I would try and get the President Impeached. If I was a Communist I would want to continue to unfair trade deals ripping off the US or continue to Steal its valuable intel. If I were a communist I would cover up a Virus and spread it across the globe killing thousands of people. Our media thinks all of that is good so why wouldn't I think our media is Communist based and Anti American spell out the good for America the MSM spews I bet you will get crickets.

    Thank you for "telling it like it is." We watched the press conference again today and became increasingly upset at how the media tried to twist things that the President &/or Vice President said. I am even more impressed about how calm and polished our President and Task Force Team are in wording their responses even with all the chaos of reporters shouting out questions. Thanking God that He is in control of all things.

    Really sickened by the attempts of some of the WH media reps to constantly interject domestic politics into the Coronavirus briefings. One twirp asked about the President’s low credibility ratings. When asked for the source, I believe the twirp said something about it being stated on NPR but did not state attribution. The President tried to calmly respond but quickly went to the next question. After failing to get him to apologize for designating the virus’ origin, another dimwit said that “someone on the White House staff” was heard calling it the Kung Flu and asked if The President found that unacceptable. Seriously?!?
    I’m calling for an IQ test for WH correspondents. Or, the ability for The President to reassign them to China and see how Xi handles questions like that.

  • Diana De Ruyver

    03/18/2020 01:42 PM

    I am just so thankful to God that President Trump is the president that is leading the US in its fight against the Corona Virus. Can you just shut your eyes and imagine Joe in charge and/or worse yet Obama who did nothing to prevent the spread of a virus during his administration. Neither Joe or Obama had or would have the leadership qualities, the care and concern displayed by President Trump.

  • Reissa Reedy

    03/18/2020 01:41 PM

    What is the COVID-19 Task Force team’s recommendation for general public wearing facemasks when going to places where there are other people? This looks like a practice in some countries that are dealing relatively successfully with this virus. Is the Administration saying that facemasks should only be for first responders and healthcare workers?

  • Joan Logan

    03/18/2020 01:18 PM

    Our greatest enemy is the news media. I stopped relying on them for the truth a long time ago. President Trump is doing the best he can during this very trying time. We need to back him.

    I am SO disgusted with the deplorable media in the tank with the Dems! I woke up to lying Chuck Schumer reaming our President for being to slow in reacting to the virus. The Trump Derangement Syndrome is the current pandemic!

    This is not a new thing with reporters. My father was a County Commissioner in Palm Beach County Florida in the 60s. I attended a meeting I which the Chief of Police in one the surrounding small towns, to please change the hours in a park so they could clear it before dark. The headlines the next day in the WPB Post said County Commissioners closing the Park in the specified city! That brought a lot of people hollering!

    What you see with the rise of the lying, anti-American “media” is the majority employment of 3rd-world primitives whose primary driver is some combination of jealousy, envy, and theft.

    In short, the last time the media was trustworthy was during the Huntley-Brinkley era, before mass invasion of anti-American, 3rd-world democrats ...

Can you just shut your eyes and imagine Joe in charge and/or worse yet Obama who did nothing to prevent the spread of a virus during his administration. Neither Joe or Obama had or would have the leadership qualities, the care and concern displayed by President Trump.

    What is the COVID-19 Task Force team’s recommendation for general public wearing facemasks when going to places where there are other people? This looks like a practice in some countries that are dealing relatively successfully with this virus. Is the Administration saying that facemasks should only be for first responders and healthcare workers?

    I am SO disgusted with the deplorable media in the tank with the Dems! I woke up to lying Chuck Schumer reaming our President for being to slow in reacting to the virus. The Trump Derangement Syndrome is the current pandemic!
    Chuck, Nancy, Schiff, & the entire squad should SHUT UP, go home, & leave our country alone! They don’t even LIKE it here!
    Stay safe, Governor,

    This is not a new thing with reporters. My father was a County Commissioner in Palm Beach County Florida in the 60s. I attended a meeting I which the Chief of Police in one the surrounding small towns, to please change the hours in a park so they could clear it before dark. The headlines the next day in the WPB Post said County Commissioners closing the Park in the specified city! That brought a lot of people hollering!

    This all started with bat soup in China. Where did this bat come from ? The woods nearby ? (Did they make a movie of it ? ) How did they know so quickly of the genetic makeup of this virus ? How close is the Wuhan lab ? Did an employee sell a research animal ? Uuummm

    What you see with the rise of the lying, anti-American “media” is the majority employment of 3rd-world primitives whose primary driver is some combination of jealousy, envy, and theft.

    In short, the last time the media was trustworthy was during the Huntley-Brinkley era, before mass invasion of anti-American, 3rd-world democrats ...

The "China Virus"

March 18, 2020 |

I told you Tuesday about the New York Times reporter who lifted President Trump’s words of context (“Try getting it yourselves”) to make it appear that he told state Governors that they were on their own when it came to obtaining medical equipment to deal with the COVID-19 virus. Here is what he actually said:

“We are backing you in terms of equipment and getting what you need. Also, though, respirators, ventilators, all of the equipment, try getting it yourselves. We will be backing you, but try getting it yourselves. Point-of-sale is much better, much more direct if you can get it yourselves.”

Trump himself seems to be so fed up with the media’s endless attempts to undermine, attack, second-guess, badmouth and misquote everything he’s says and does to keep Americans safe that he used part of his coronavirus update press conference yesterday to call out the Times for its deliberately misleading story, which he quite accurately described as “false,” “bad journalism” and “totally disgraceful.”

https://www.westernjournal.com/disgrace-trump-uses-news-conference-slam-nyt-wildly-misleading-headline/


Commentary continues below advertisement


I expect tomorrow’s headline in the Times to read, “Trump Response ‘Totally Disgraceful.’”

Trump also blasted that PC idiocy about the term “China virus” being racist (as Dan Bongino pointed out during our joint appearance on “Hannity” last night, China isn’t a race, it’s a country.) “China Virus” or “Wuhan virus” (which I’ve heard is actually what they call it in Wuhan) is no more “racist” than the terms Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever or Ebola virus, which was first identified in a village near the Ebola River in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/17/politics/trump-china-coronavirus/index.html

Trump very pointedly called it the “China virus,” and explained why. He said for the US media to accept and spread China’s propaganda that it’s racist to associate it with its real place of origin deflects responsibility away from China and makes it easier for them to spread the lie that the US military created it. He said, “It did come from China. So, I think it's a very accurate term.” Asked by a reporter (of course) if that didn’t create a “stigma,” he replied:

"I don't think so. I think saying that our military gave it to them creates a stigma.”

I have never been so proud to be a Trump supporter than at that moment.

Besides, if any nation on Earth deserves to be "stigmatized," it's communist China. The real mystery is why in the world the media are so eager to carry water for the totalitarian Chinese government, which is antithetical to everything they claim to support. China has hidden vital information about COVID-19 that could help other nations know what they’re dealing with (and continues to do so), it allows unconscionable slave labor conditions, it’s the biggest polluter in the world, it’s aggressively militaristic, it's genuinely racist, it has no tolerance for freedom of religion or speech, it uses the Internet to monitor and control its own people, it “disappears” officials who criticize its actions…

https://www.westernjournal.com/chinese-lies-coronavirus-get-exposed-another-government-critic-vanishes/

…And what makes the US media’s shilling for China even more inexplicable is its hostility to the media. Just this week, Western reporters trying to cover the virus at a Chinese hospital had their cameras and cell phones confiscated and wiped, and reporters from three major US newspapers were expelled. One of those papers was even the New York Times!

https://www.westernjournal.com/china-expels-journalists-major-us-publications/

Yet the Times and other Western outlets would trust China and unquestioningly repeat its bogus talking points while attacking and aggressively questioning everything that our own President and his team of America’s top medical experts tell them. Are they THAT dependent on the Chinese market to stay in business? Or is it just more proof that the most virulent disease plaguing America is not some virus from China but Trump Derangement Syndrome?

The latest news on the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is that the worldwide infection rate has reached 200,000 cases with 8,000 deaths, and there are now cases reported in all 50 US states. The nations with the most cases are China, Italy, Iran, Spain and Germany, and the most confirmed deaths have been in China, Italy, Iran, Spain and France.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/coronavirus-200000-cases-death-toll-8000-johns-hopkins

Those most at risk are the elderly and people with underlying medical conditions such as lung and cardiovascular disease. Here’s some good information on how to protect seniors from contracting it.

    Yes Governor our President is being constantly trashed by the media, he also has a lot of snakes around him who feed him a bunch of lies. My heart goes out to him. I feel the media produced this hype and the panic and this fits perfectly into the deep state agenda. And, in the end it is all in God's hands.

  • Robert Carter

    Perhaps this would be the ideal moment for the President, during one of the heavily attended new conferences, to make a statement to the effect that the American people - and the world - have, for the past few weeks, taken and submitted to extreme measures to defeat this threat to human life, because we as God's people so value human life that we will whatever is necessary to preserve it. And then say - "And, it occurred to me that that the other severe threat to human life was not defeated when in 1973, the Supreme Court made a decision to allow mass killing of viable human beings. That just doesn't make any sense at all. I really wish the SCOTUS would re-examine that decision, especially considering what we are presently doing today to preserve human life, world-wide.

    I praise President Trump in all his effort that he is doing. The dang Media needs to be shutdown for 14 day and maybe just maybe people will calm down. It’s a crying shame that these politicians (Especially the Democrats) can’t let President Trump do what he needs instead of blaming him for things he hasn’t done. They need really need to be voted out of office. Again Thank you President Trump for putting the people first trying to make America great again! I’ll back President Trump for the next 8 years if possibles

    From Terry James, The Real Pandemic, just a snippet of his column:
    These changes we’re witnessing, experiencing, and enduring aren’t Bible prophecy being fulfilled, but rather, are setting the stage for the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.

    The first of these world orders is the one Antichrist will rule. It will ultimately be created out of the geopolitical turmoil going on at this moment in history. This turbulence—fomented by Satan, with the United States presidency and the American nation at the epicenter—is generating the current economic earthquake.

    The coronavirus hoopla is being used masterfully by Satan and his minions in high places to try yet again to bring this US president down. This must be done in order to get the globalist juggernaut back on track.

    This is in no way saying that I take this disease lightly. I agree with my good friend Eric Barger of Take a Stand Ministries, who recently wrote the following:

    There is no question that COVID-19 is deadly. There is also no question that some in the media are manipulating this story dramatically as they report on it. Objective reporting is hard to find these days but instead of calling out some of the politicians on the left—who've chosen to politicize an epidemic—their allies in the media are choosing to just chime in! Both pundits and political hacks alike apparently just can't wait to attempt scoring the cheapest of points against the president. It is frankly unconscionable, but, as expected, it appears that nothing whatsoever is off limits for these partisans.

    The old serpent has chosen to create the perception of a worldwide spread of a relatively common virus to bring the peoples of the world together. Fear is the ingeniously devilish nucleus around which the globalist cabal has wrapped its plans to get things back to normal, in a perverted model of normalcy.

    The true virus infecting the world is SIN.

    I’m so glad Trump is President. He runs government like a business. Why reporters are all vying for the “Trip Trump Up Trophy” is so annoying and juvenile. Glad President Trump has assembled a team who are cooperative and getting results on a pandemic that is tragic. I’m 81 and staying inside so I don’t burden society in this tragic time of Wuhan virus infection. God bless our President who isn’t afraid to speak the truth.

    I am so glad that President Trump is in the White House. He is surrounding himself with very capable people to lead us out of this crisis. I can't think of another President with such strong leadership skills with the exception of possibly President Reagan. I am in awe of his ability to fight for the American people in the face of attacks by the driveby media. Who does the driveby media serve? Slander and bias are not part of journalism. I pray for President Trump and his family, Vice President Pence and his family and the people working side by side with the President. I pray for Wisdom and Fortitude for all of them. Please Lord keep them in your care.

    Well said! It is the wuhan virus! and that biological lab there where it got out from was paid for and built from the Bill Gates get foundation under Barack Obama! It was created in China and let out of China so they could come up with vaccines I don’t know if it was intentional or not but it got out there! And then they tried to blame it on her local exotic food market . Then they destroy the market because I know the evidence will show it didn’t create their. It was created in that lab!

    I have repeatedly questioned actually on occasion accused the media to be influenced by Communist China thru donations of money or direct or partial ownership of these propaganda outlets as CNN MSNBC and the MSM as it continue's to lash out at our President. If you were China what would you do? If I am a Communist I would create a foreign country to make it look like it was meddling in our elections or I would try and get the President Impeached. If I was a Communist I would want to continue to unfair trade deals ripping off the US or continue to Steal its valuable intel. If I were a communist I would cover up a Virus and spread it across the globe killing thousands of people. Our media thinks all of that is good so why wouldn't I think our media is Communist based and Anti American spell out the good for America the MSM spews I bet you will get crickets.

    Thank you for "telling it like it is." We watched the press conference again today and became increasingly upset at how the media tried to twist things that the President &/or Vice President said. I am even more impressed about how calm and polished our President and Task Force Team are in wording their responses even with all the chaos of reporters shouting out questions. Thanking God that He is in control of all things.

    Really sickened by the attempts of some of the WH media reps to constantly interject domestic politics into the Coronavirus briefings. One twirp asked about the President’s low credibility ratings. When asked for the source, I believe the twirp said something about it being stated on NPR but did not state attribution. The President tried to calmly respond but quickly went to the next question. After failing to get him to apologize for designating the virus’ origin, another dimwit said that “someone on the White House staff” was heard calling it the Kung Flu and asked if The President found that unacceptable. Seriously?!?
    I’m calling for an IQ test for WH correspondents. Or, the ability for The President to reassign them to China and see how Xi handles questions like that.
