UPDATE ON THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH

President Trump is reportedly experiencing “mild symptoms” from COVID-19 and has moved to the Walter Reed Medical Center “out of an abundance of caution.” There is a large suite of offices and living quarters there for the Chief Executive, so it’s sort of like a remote White House where he can continue to work. He’s taking an experimental antibody cocktail by Regeneron that’s in clinical trials, supplemented by zinc, vitamin D, melatonin, Pepcid and a daily aspirin.

Before leaving, he made a video assuring Americans that he’s “doing very well” and thanking them for their support. You can watch it here, and please keep praying for his good health and that of the First Lady (who also reportedly has only mild symptoms, such as a light cough) and others who have contracted this virus.

Some of the others who have tested positive include Kellyanne Conway and GOP Senators Mike Lee and Thom Tillis. Mike Pence and his wife, Joe Biden and his wife, and Attorney General Bill Barr have all tested negative. Instapundit is keeping a regularly-updated post on these tests, if you’d like to check in occasionally for the latest.

The absence of Sens. Lee and Tillis could pose a problem for the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett if they have to be absent from the Senate for an extended period, since there’s such a razor thin GOP majority due to Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski refusing to vote before the election (or they could just do their Constitutional duty.) However, Lee and Tillis can participate via Internet and just have to be back in person for the confirmation vote. So it’s likely this won’t be a problem, no matter how fervently some liberal media outlets are openly wishing for it.

There was also a report that Judge Barrett tested positive for the virus over the summer, but she’s been tested again, and it was negative.

While we all pray for the President and First Lady and the others, be sure to keep taking precautions to avoid getting the virus yourself. Here’s a list that might be handy of 35 places where you’re most likely to catch it, with ratings of the various threat levels.

TRUMP HATERS

I don’t really want to write much about some of the horrible, disgusting comments from Trump haters, wishing death on him and his family and staffers and celebrating that he has a “disease he called a hoax” (FYI: he never said that; he said the media narrative that he didn’t take the coronavirus seriously was a hoax. Words seem hard for them to comprehend; maybe Trump should try communicating with them entirely in cartoons.)

I have several links to the slimy tweets, comments and videos of these people, but they do it for clicks, and I’m not going to give them those, or the publicity of quoting them. (Although I will mention Steve Cox, who tweeted, “I hope they both die,” because he’s running for Congress in California and voters there need to know who to reject thoroughly.) These sick folks can sit in obscurity, stewing in their demonic hatred, until they figure how to be decent human beings.

However, I will show you this depressing Morning Consult/Politico poll that found that most Republicans describe themselves as either “sad” or “worried” over Trump’s illness, while 41% of Democrats said they feel “indifferent” about it, and 40% said they are “happy.”

If you are “happy” because someone has a potentially deadly disease just because you disagree with their politics, there’s a large hole in you where a soul should be, and you need to turn to God and fill it. I have titanic differences with many far-left politicians, but if they and their families were ill, I would pray for them to recover because they are fellow human beings and children of God.

I know some would reply that Trump is unique because he’s just so evil that he deserves it (or because they’ve heard so much fake and slanted news that’s convinced him he’s evil and they’re not interested in hearing the truth.) But many of them have made no bones about the fact that they don’t just want Trump dead, they want everyone who supports him dead (because they “hate fascists” and don’t know the meaning of the word “irony.”) As Stephen Green of PJ Media put it, “If they’ll publicly call for the death of a president, imagine what they must privately think of you.”

These sort of sick comments are all over the open sewer known as Twitter, but perhaps in a signal that the "masks-off" violent leftist hatred is horrifying voters and increasing sympathy and support for Trump, the CEO of Twitter announced that any tweets wishing death on the President would be deleted and those accounts suspended.

Funny, I thought that would be the very least that would happen to anyone who publicly wished death on the President at any time. Conservatives are routinely deleted and locked out for far less. Why did it take Trump actually getting sick before Twitter decided that for leftists to promote the death of the President was going too far?

CONGRATULATIONS MICHIGAN

Congratulations to the people of Michigan, whose Supreme Court has just ruled that the law cited by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer to justify her grabbing the power to impose her arbitrary, draconian and endless shutdown edicts is unconstitutional. Since this is the state constitution, there’s no appealing to a higher federal court.

This is the point at which the Governor should throw in the towel and meet with the GOP legislature to craft a reasonable compromise policy for dealing with the pandemic that doesn’t require destroying people’s livelihoods and stomping on their Constitutional rights. But maybe you didn’t notice in the first paragraph that I said this is Gretchen Whitmer. So her immediate response was to shrug off the Court ruling and insist that she would keep on imposing her rules anyway by citing some other laws that allegedly give her the power to act as the executive and legislative (and apparently now, judicial) branch all in one.

And Democrats foolishly conjecture about Trump refusing to give up power? Trying to force one of them to give up the power they seized during this pandemic is going to be like trying to wrestle a banana away from King Kong.

    It seems that being a Dem suppresses human kindness and fairness. At least there are some good judges in place in Michigan.

    I reviewed the debate and noticed three things 1) our Potus's clear and sharp skills of listening and speaking and intent to express his point of view, while doing some interrupting, 2) Mr.Biden's /VP tendency to do a lot more interrupting of both Chris and The Potus, displaying disrespect, name-calling, and declaring. "We don't have time" in an effort to move away from dangerous topics that would reveal the true agenda of the DNC. Mr. Biden showed signs of mental stress and lack of sharpness.

    We now see how many are. Even many in churches are talking like those wishing death on POTUS and any who support him. Hell is unleashing its full fury on the President and his supporters.
    Our nation needs real prayer and repentance.
    Otherwise we will become another Venezuela if the left/Marxists steal the election
    Apparently any lies are acceptable. Read Romans 1

    When we have deleted God from all aspects of our lives, all kinds of evil thoughts and actions will follow as we see it right now with people expressing glee over President Trump's illness!

    Haters gonna hate. Respect begins with oneself. You must like yourself, come to terms with yourself, make peace with and accept who and what you are. Take a positive, productive approach to life. Do the best you can by yourself and what you do. Focus on gratitude and you'll be a lot happier in life. Last, but not least, leaven things with a healthy dose of humour, like Gov Mike always does. Laugh and the world laughs with you; cry and you cry alone. ;-))

    It is sad to note that there are so many mentally ill individuals who say such horrible things to someone who is going through an illness. I say mentally ill because they have no compassion, no empathy, lack a moral compass, follow no normal patterns, are so deranged with hatred that it affects their every day connection with the world around them. Sad, they really do not know how sick they actually are. Sadly too, there is a dark evil side that not only lurks within them, but shows its ugly head for all to see without embarassment or remorse.
    (****For 7 months, our President who is high risk for at least two factors and during a time where covid is running rampant in every corner of the globe has been Covid Free ... Mask or no mask, 36" or 6 ' or no distancing and crowds , and interacting with his supports... He has been Covid Free... that says something) GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND MRS. TRUMP. HE IS A GREAT LEADER. A RESPONSIBLE MAN! GET WELL SIR!

    Don't envy sinners or be deceived by them. Shortly before the flood,
    arrogant and ungodly people strutted around and acted as if nothing
    bad would ever happen to them. There would be no end to business
    as usual. They could get away with anything, and no one would stand
    up against them. They especially did not expect God's opposition. In
    their eyes Noah was stupid and crazy. Then Noah went with his family,
    and God shut the door. When the rain started I'm sure Noah could hear
    people pounding on the door, pleading for him to open it.

    While reading your words about Trump haters you made the following comment that I wish you would look at and give some Holy Ghost thoughts about ........(your quote) I have titanic differences with many far-left politicians, but if they and their families were ill, I would pray for them to recover because they are fellow human beings and children of God........... My reason for emailing you has to do with the last 3 words you wrote (and which many people use the same phrase) "children of God". We are not all "children of God" ..... yes, we are all "creatures of God" but not "children". If we were all automatically "Children of God" there would be no need for Jesus and what He did for us on the cross. We become a "child of God" and a part of His family when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and not before. Before doing so we are "creatures of God" as He created man in His image but to have the right to say you are a "child of God" comes only with salvation. I have heard at funerals the 3 word phrase you used and feel that the pastor is telling the attending people something that is not really true just to make them "feel" that every one there is a part of God's family when non-believers do not qualify and there are usually some non-believers in attendance. They should be telling the people that they all need to reevaluate their own lives to be sure that they will be going to heaven when they die. Of course that seems harsh at a funeral but ........ the truth is a lot of times hard to accept. Thanks for letting me vent and I hope that you will do some heart/Holy Ghost searching to understand where I am coming from; for me it is from the Holy Spirit. Thank you for your informative newsletters; I feel like you are doing a good job of giving us the "true and truthful" news as you are getting it and am glad to have a Christian source presenting things. Ok, that's all I've got to say.

    Being a GUINEA PIG ...as a BLESSING? I had much more confidence in the world's medical ability. I thought the Chinese Communist virus would be stopped in it's tracks by now. But now as President Trump's media enemies now see that with certain medicines in place it is not a death sentence. I would hate to see a mask mandate where a person not with the virus gets stunned or fined

    Our prayers are with the President & Mrs. Trump and our entire nation, for salvation, health and God's holy protection. No one should want anyone to suffer and die from Covid or from abortion. Thanks for recognizing our plight in Michigan. Whitmer's hypocrisy during this whole pandemic has been absolutely stomach churning!

    I have never seen anything good come out of hate. Love is manifest by action. We see love in the hard work and diligence of our President.

    I thought people were born with souls which differentiates theM from animals. If they are, many have lost them somewhere. In all cultures, back to creation, regardless of religion, or lack thereof, there have been some commonly held basic beliefs in order for people to live together: you don’t murder, or kill without reason, views not being one of them, you don't take what belongs to others, or destroy same. Most cultureS prohibited sex with children. If people still did them, they knew it was wrong. Now people are calling these things right if done to get a person, or support a viewpoint. When people wish a person dead who is ill, burn and loot, kill viable babies, and think it’s okay, our culture as lost it’s humanity. They even want to open borders and that would let in countless children for the sex trade, drug smuggles, and terrorists. My liberal neighbors don’t get it and think the DNC is just saying things for political reasons and won't really implement them?

    Other than, watching your show, I refuse to see other news. Although one did slip in. It's all Trump's fault again. That's why those others on his staff are sick. But research was done & one of the setup people for the debate had it. Did they only go in there to touch what the President touched? Did they leavevthe Democrat side alone? Amazing. Guess I really shouldn't be amazed. It's an all out war to get to the White House, for the next 4 yrs. I can see the viciousness of the left. Maybe there's a paper trail that needs following. Consider it an attempt on his life. The debate location setup people needed better testing in place. Maybe they should live stream the next one.

    I liked the show Huckabee again last nite great guests and I would like to attend some time I like your band they play a lot tunes that activate my memories back to when I when I was young. To all the Haters in the world they are not confined to the United States most of them probably do not know Jesus Christ or heard of Him they wished Him dead and got the wish fulfilled. Haters He came back. The Haters survive time because of Satanic beliefs Paganism is alive in America and around the world the war against good and evil probably will continue till the end of time. We have God and Satan and we are the warriors the Haters and Lovers of Peace and Tranquility Freedoms. President Trump opposes war, works for peaceful solutions, trying too make Life easier for all of America's citizens the CCP opposes this custom the choice for me is crystal clear Trump is for Peace and Prosperity Health and Safety the Haters reject this way of Life as Satan has a strong hold of them. The Lefts Media preaches violence everyday if not the President the supreme court Justices and wants the churches shut down need anymore proof?????

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”? Edmund Burke
    It's as true today as it was 200 years ago--except for now, in modern times, the sin of giving into political apathy particularly with many of my friends and those I know who continue to support MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA. I ask them this question: what principles will you stand for now and in the future?
