DOESN'T EVERYBODY WANT A QUICK END TO THE PANDEMIC?
I have a theory about why so many “experts,” politicians, media people and government bureaucrats are trying to discourage the use of hydroxycloroquine, in combination with azithromycin and zinc, to treat COVID-19. It’s not just that they oppose anything President Trump has expressed approval for, although that’s part of it. Here’s a thought: what if it’s not because this therapy won’t work, but because it WILL?
In other words: if we do have an effective treatment and/or preventative, the pandemic might be over too soon to be used as an excuse to make all the societal changes some want to impose.
This really hit me when I heard Dr. Anthony Fauci say that we wouldn’t necessarily be able to have in-person elections by November of this year. How many Democrats would LOVE to see mail-in voting for the entire country? How conveeeeeeenient. And don’t listen when they say mail-in ballots don’t encourage election fraud. That’s a crock, as you’ll see from the story linked to here.
Those who want power –- during this pandemic and ever after –- are full of ideas for controlling the population. Steve Hilton, host of THE NEXT REVOLUTION on FOX NEWS, calls it “technocratic hubris...a technocrat’s dream and America’s nightmare.” As he reported on Sunday, former head of the Food & Drug Administration Scott Gottlieb is pushing a plan for “contract tracing,” which “can be achieved through strengthened public health case investigation augmented by technology and community-level collaborations.” It’s a very complicated program of mass virus testing (not antibody testing) to (quoting Dr. Fauci) “identify, isolate, contact-trace” everyone who gets the virus. This is preposterous, when an unknown number, into the millions, have already been or will be exposed to the virus, and the test won’t identify those. But Apple and Google are ready to step up and be a part of this monstrous program to track what in the end could be virtually everyone.
Prayers today for the victims of severe weather Sunday across Louisiana and Mississippi. As the front swept eastward, there were reports of over 50 tornadoes, as well as large hail, high winds and flash floods. Hundreds of buildings and homes were destroyed, and with so many people sheltering in place due to the coronavirus, at this writing, there are reports of 17 deaths, and it could rise higher.
More severe weather is expected through Monday afternoon from Georgia to the East Coast, so if you are in its path, please take precautions and keep a close eye on the weather news. And if you are able to help, please consider a donation to Samaritan’s Purse, who are always among the first on the scene of deadly disasters, whether they’re setting up a field hospital in Italy or rushing to provide aid and comfort to tornado victims right here at home.
If you read my newsletter and website, this won’t come as news to you, but for newcomers, it’s worth repeating what the rest of the world is finally waking up to: the “Russian collusion” investigation of President Trump’s election campaign was based on a load of garbage from day one. And the people who were running it knew it was a load of garbage from day one, but still went to the FISA courts and claimed (not “sloppily” but falsely and deliberately) that it was legitimate to get warrants to spy on American citizens, even ones whom they knew were innocent.
There are now stories circulating about possible criminal indictments. I will keep hope alive that someone will finally be held to account for these outrageous, unconstitutional abuses of power, but I won’t hold my breath until I see them in jail where they belong.
OANN REPORTER REMOVED
The White House Correspondents’ Association announced that it has removed one news outlet from its rotation of reporters allowed to cover President Trump’s coronavirus briefings. The outlet's reporter allegedly violated “social distancing” rules by standing in the back when a seat wasn’t available. The WHCA stressed, “We do not take this action lightly. This is a matter of public safety."
The facts that the reporter was there as a special invited guest of the White House press secretary and was from One America News Network, the only conservative news outlet represented, and that he asked questions that pointed up the raging bias of the other reporters rather than attacking Trump, had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with it. This is purely a matter of public safety. You know, just like handing out tickets to all those churchgoers locked inside their cars at drive-in Easter services.
I’m beginning to wonder if “COVID-19” isn’t the latest euphemism for “socialism” now that it appears voters have seen through “Democratic socialism.”

Monday Must-Reads: For all the liberals whining about how much better off we’d be if only Obama were still in charge (and according to a Politico/Morning Consult poll, 52% of Americans actually believe that) or, Heaven forbid, actually wishing Joe Biden were running the federal virus response, here from Matt Margolis are six reasons why Obama would have botched it. I’ll bet #1 will come as a surprise to you, since it’s something the media have falsely accused Trump of doing, yet Obama actually did it.
And from Andrew Klavan, a hilariously-titled piece on how the media are going through the agonies of the damned trying to find ways to avoid admitting that Trump has been right about a lot of things they turned out to be wrong about. Bonus: Klavan admits he initially mocked Trump but was wrong. See, CNN, MSNBC, et al, is that so hard?

For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
