Wuhan China flu aka Coronavirus Covid-19 observations and lessons, America’s finest hour?, Safety over profit and people over fear

“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself,”...Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason, if we dig deep in our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men”…Edward R. Murrow

Natural disasters are inevitable. A part of life on Earth.

Something like the Wuhan virus was coming sooner or later.

I, like many of my friends and associates are concerned about the origins and possible intents of the virus.

Was this designed and planned by the Chinese to impact the US?

I do not know.

But it did cross my mind.

For the moment I am in survivor mode.

Encounters from yesterday prompted me to ponder a variety of things and to write this article.

First, to satisfy the concerns of many, and to honor a long time commenter, is the following information:

“Now, regarding what you’ve heard about this virus and how it got going. It did NOT originate at the ‘live market’ in Wuhan; bats were not being sold there at the time, but it IS a bat virus. I got a report from an ‘insider’ in China who said that they’d be killed if discovered. This is what they said: There is a researcher in Wuhan (one of the very few labs on the planet that works with viruses) and any researcher-being who they are-wants to make an amazing discovery, publish papers and be well known. This researcher was able to isolate the virus and have it jump from bat to human. The next project was transmission from human to human and obviously, that was successful. The researcher published a paper. It was read by some. It has since disappeared. Bioweapon? Unlikely. ‘Escape from the lab’ a la Stephen King’s ‘The Stand?’ Probable. Why this research? Unknown.”

Within hours of receiving the above, I met a young man who is a friend of a relative. Someone who I had heard much about but never spoken to. A very level headed, intelligent person.

A few minutes into the conversation, he stated his belief about the origin of the Wuhan China virus. He believed that it was developed by the Chinese in retaliation for Trump’s tariff measures. Something that had crossed my mind.

This needs to be investigated after the emergency is over.

Now for the most important thing to be written.

I went to Harris Teeter for some grocery items yesterday. Not a lot. I stay pretty well stocked under normal circumstances, buying in bulk sale items.

The folks at Harris Teeter, as usual have done a great job of trying to keep the shelves full. I was pleasantly surprised and purchased what I needed.

I thanked them for their efforts. I urge you to do likewise.

They are a shining example of Americans doing their jobs in the face of adversity and America’s ability to keep the supply chain rolling.

Of course I was focused on my task.

Two conversations stick out:

  1. A woman in my age group and I discussed ice cream and grandkids. It turns out that she is unable to see hers because of a quarantine situation.
  2. In the checkout line behind me the younger woman had an overflowing cart. She has 3 teenage boys. We talked about kids and remote schooling and one thing or another. When leaving I stated I enjoyed talking to her and she said she did too because she had few people to talk to.

Perhaps I should have spent a few more minutes speaking with the first lady.

As I have aged I have tried to be more aware of the person who is checking me out in a store or assisting me with more empathy. To slow down and interact.

Not everyone wants to interact but it does not matter.

Perhaps we all should reach out to our fellow Americans as we are increasingly being isolated.

We are all in this together and should behave as Americans have done in other hard times.

Lastly, I am thankful for President Trump.

Aside from his being a strong leader, the following 3 things stand out:

  1. The strong economy that we entered this crisis with.
  2. His insistence on protecting the borders and limiting travel early.
  3. His efforts to get manufacturing back in the US and out of China.

A long time UNC TV personality recently stated that this crisis could be the World War II for the younger generation.

How we handle this will be a defining moment in American History.

Let’s hope that we look back on it with pride.

Wells.

NC illegal alien sex crimes against children, Democrat Party Governor Cooper and Sanctuary cities to blame, Anti sanctuary city bill passes NC House

NC illegal alien sex crimes against children, Democrat Party Governor Cooper and Sanctuary cities to blame, Anti sanctuary city bill passes NC House

“Illegal Alien in Sanctuary City Charged with Sexually Assaulting 6-Year-Old”…Breitbart

“My staff and I agreed that we needed to focus on the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), which appeared to be running out of control. By the time we came to the subject, investigations by the General Accounting Office (GAO) and congressional committees had already indicated that the White House used the INS to further its political agenda. A blatant politicization of the agency took place during the 1996 presidential campaign when the White House pressured the INS into expediting its “Citizenship USA” (CUSA) program to grant citizenship to thousands of aliens that the White House counted as likely Democratic voters.”…David Schippers

“In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4000 violent killings. Over the years thousands of Americans have been brutally killed by those who illegally entered our country and thousands more lives will be lost if we don’t act right now.”…President Trump Border Wall Speech January 8, 2019

 

From Breitbart.

“Illegal Alien in Sanctuary City Charged with Sexually Assaulting 6-Year-Old
An illegal alien has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a six-year-old child in Johnston County, North Carolina.

Alejandro Duarte Aldama, 32 years old, was charged last week on a number of child sex crime charges involving the alleged sexual assault of a six-year-old, according to records obtained by CBS 17.

Aldama, a law enforcement official told Breitbart News, entered the U.S. without inspection, which indicates that he is in the country illegally, most likely arriving from across the southern border. Aldama had been living in Raleigh, North Carolina — a sanctuary city that shields illegal aliens from deportation.”

“North Carolina, this year, has seen a number of cases in which illegal aliens have been accused of sex crimes against children. In February, an illegal alien was charged with raping a 14-year-old girl in Harmony, North Carolina, before attempting to flee the U.S. Likewise, two illegal alien teenagers were charged last month for allegedly gang-raping a 13-year-old girl in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.”

“Anti-sanctuary city bill passes NC House, moves to Senate

Members of the North Carolina House of Representatives voted in favor of a bill prohibiting sanctuary cities.

“This is a good bill,” said Rep. Michael Speciale, R-District 3, and a bill sponsor. “This allows the citizens to step up to the plate and be able to stand up for what they believe in. I think everyone should support it. It’s a great bill.”

House Bill 135 prohibits counties and cities from enacting sanctuary ordinances or limiting or restricting the enforcement of federal immigration laws.

It also allows lawsuits against those in violation.”

From The Charlotte Observer.

“Gov. Roy Cooper called an effort by state lawmakers to require sheriffs to cooperate with immigration authorities “unconstitutional,” as that effort took a major step closer to becoming law.

The Senate voted 25-18 on Monday night in support of House Bill 370, but Cooper’s comments may represent a serious obstacle to the bill, which would need approval from him or from super-majorities in the legislature.”

Thomas Jefferson original draft Declaration of Independence condemns slavery,  King of Great Britain determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold

Thomas Jefferson original draft Declaration of Independence condemns slavery,  King of Great Britain determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold

“he has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it’s most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. this piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold”…Thomas Jefferson, original draft, Declaration of Independence

“I congratulate you, my dear friend, on the law of your state [South Carolina] for suspending the importation of slaves, and for the glory you have justly acquired by endeavoring to prevent it for ever. This abomination must have an end, and there is a superior bench reserved in heaven for those who hasten it.”…Thomas Jefferson

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”…Jesus, John 8:32

 

Slavery did not begin in the United States or original colonies.

It was an accepted condition of being conquered or bought and sold for thousands of years.

If the dumbed down people who are being used by demagogues want reparations, they should petition their African tribesmen and/or the parties who actively traded for them prior to shipment to the US such as the Portuguese, Arabs, etc.

Slavery did not start here. It ended here at the cost of many lives.

And Thomas Jefferson, who was raised in a world that accepted slavery as the norm, condemned it in his original draft of the Declaration of Independence.

“he has waged cruel war against human nature itself, violating it’s most sacred rights of life & liberty in the persons of a distant people who never offended him, captivating & carrying them into slavery in another hemisphere, or to incur miserable death in their transportation thither. this piratical warfare, the opprobrium of infidel powers, is the warfare of the CHRISTIAN king of Great Britain. determined to keep open a market where MEN should be bought & sold, he has prostituted his negative for suppressing every legislative attempt to prohibit or to restrain this execrable commerce: and that this assemblage of horrors might want no fact of distinguished die, he is now exciting those very people to rise in arms among us, and to purchase that liberty of which he has deprived them, & murdering the people upon whom he also obtruded them; thus paying off former crimes committed against the liberties of one people, with crimes which he urges them to commit against the lives of another.”

Central American caravan (mob) includes criminal elements and gang members, Guatemalan intelligence officials confirmation, Fake news misportrays

Central American caravan (mob) includes criminal elements and gang members, Guatemalan intelligence officials confirmation, Fake news misportrays

“Women and children are being used without regard to the risks to their lives”…Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández

“No evidence of any criminals in the Central American Caravan”…Chuck Todd

“We are being lied to on a scale unimaginable by George Orwell.”…Citizen Wells

 

From Judicial Watch October 23, 2018.

“Young Angry Men & Gangbangers March Towards U.S. Yelling “Vamos Para Allá Trump!”

Besides gang members and mobs of young angry men, the Central American caravan making its way into the United States also consists of Africans, Bangladeshis, Sri Lankans and Indians. Judicial Watch is covering the crisis from the Guatemalan-Honduran border this week and observed that the popular mainstream media narrative of desperate migrants—many of them women and children—seeking a better life is hardly accurate. Guatemalan intelligence officials confirmed that the caravan that originated in the northern Honduran city of San Pedro Sula includes a multitude of Special Interest Aliens (SIA) from the countries listed above as well as other criminal elements and gang members.

There are also large groups of men, some with criminal histories, aggressively demanding that the U.S. take them in. During a visit to the Guatemalan town of Chiquimula, about 35 miles from the Honduran border, Judicial Watch encountered a rowdy group of about 600 men, ages 17 to about 40, marching north on a narrow two-lane highway. Among them was a 40-year-old Honduran man who previously lived in the United States for decades and got deported. His English was quite good, and he said his kids and girlfriend live in the U.S. Another man in his 30s contradicted media reports that caravan participants are fleeing violence and fear for their life. “We’re not scared,” he said waving his index finger as others around him nodded in agreement. “We’re going to the United States to get jobs.” Others chanted “vamos para allá Trump!” (We’re coming Trump) as they clenched their fists in the air. “We need money and food,” said a 29-year-old man who made the trek with his 21-year-old brother.

All of the migrants interviewed by Judicial Watch repeated the same rehearsed line when asked who organized the caravan, insisting it was a spontaneous event even though there were clearly organizers shouting instructions in Spanish and putting select persons in front of cameras for interviews. A few claimed they heard about it on local news in Honduras. All of them said the caravan was not about politics but rather poverty. “I just want to get back to the U.S.,” said a 32-year-old man who admitted he has been deported from the U.S. twice. “We are all just looking for work.” The group radiated a sense of empowerment. One marcher, who appeared to be in his late teens, yelled “you go live in Honduras and see what it’s like!”

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández, a conservative, said in a local newspaper report that leftist interests seeking to destabilize the country are manipulating migrants.  Women and children are being used without regard to the risks to their lives, Hernández said. “The irregular mobilization was organized for political reasons to negatively affect the governance and image of Honduras and to destabilize the peace of neighboring countries,” the president said, adding that many have returned to the country after realizing they’ve been fooled.”

Murkowski wrestling with Kavanaugh decision, We  wrestle against rulers of  darkness, against spiritual wickedness, Feinstein Democrats minions of evil

Murkowski wrestling with Kavanaugh decision, We  wrestle against rulers of  darkness, against spiritual wickedness , Feinstein Democrats minions of evil

“O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive!”…Walter Scott

“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”…Jesus, John 8:32

“Democrat mantra: The end justifies the means.”…Citizen Wells

 

Good vs evil.

It really is that simple.

Discernment.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”…Ephesians 6:12

Ms. Murkowski pay attention and do the right thing.

Brett Kavanaugh is a good man.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

Bob Herbert of the NY Times wrote on February 26, 2001:

“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”

Miss Emma, the Clinton’s cook at the Arkansas governor’s mansion:

“The devil’s in that woman.”

Bill Clinton raped, abused and used many women and Hillary Clinton was complicit.

And furthermore, the disgusting, evil Democrat Party supported them and allowed one woman after another to be attacked and ridiculed.

Now they have the damned gall to make false accusations against and attack a good man. Simply for their agenda.

Wake up Murkowski, wake up America!

Which side are you on?

Good

or

Evil?

There is a silver lining from yesterday’s Senate Judiciary “hearing” on the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh.

I listened live to as much as I could.

I caught several lies from Christine Blasey Ford in her written testimony as well as her oral answers.

I have a copy of the transcript and will further address Ms. Fords answers as well as the behavior of the Democrats/Left.

I do have an immediate question: How did so many nut jobs get into that small room and subsequently be allowed to disrupt the proceedings?

First guess is Ms. Feinstein had a hand in that. She has gotta go.

I believe that many Americans, such as myself, are so outraged by what took place that the Dems will end up getting bitten on the ass by the fallout.

And certainly Mr. Kavanaugh will never forget this chicanery!

I have a lot on my plate but they just gave me more energy.

I hope that you feel the same way.

Full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes!

WElls.

“There is an epidemic of stupid in this country.”…Citizen Wells

 

From Zero Hedge.

“The Number Of Americans Living In Their Vehicles “Explodes” As The Middle Class Collapses

As the gap between the rich and the poor continues to increase, the middle class is steadily eroding.  In fact, I recently gave my readers 15 signs that the middle class in America is being systematically destroyed.  More Americans are falling out of the middle class and into poverty with each passing day, and this is one of the big reasons why the number of homeless is surging.  For example, the number of people living on the street in L.A. has shot up 75 percent over the last 6 years.  But of course L.A. is far from alone.  Other major cities on the west coast are facing similar problems, and that includes Seattle.  It turns out that the Emerald City has seen a 46 percent rise in the number of people sleeping in their vehicles in just the past year

The number of people who live in their vehicles because they can’t find affordable housing is on the rise, even though the practice is illegal in many U.S. cities.

The number of people residing in campers and other vehicles surged 46 percent over the past year, a recent homeless census in Seattle’s King County, Washington found. The problem is “exploding” in cities with expensive housing markets, including Los Angeles, Portland and San Francisco, according to Governing magazine.

Amazon, Microsoft and other big tech companies are in the Seattle area.  It is a region that is supposedly “prospering”, and yet this is going on.

Sadly, it isn’t just major urban areas that are seeing more people sleeping in their vehicles.  Over in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, many of the homeless sleep in their vehicles even in the middle of winter…”

People in the US during the Great Depression had to resort to desperate measures.

Though times now can be challenging, the situation now is far better than then.

So why are so many homeless? Living in cars.

Part of the answer is the epidemic of stupid which I believe began in the sixties.

Growing up, I not only had a good education in school, I had one at home.

My parents were depression era survivors and also survivors of the hard times of settling this country. What used to be status quo.

They shared their stories of growing up in rural NC and what they and their families did to survive. This has stayed with me.

Part of my life and training was my duties (luxurious compared to theirs):

  • I was the oldest of 4. I babysat my siblings.
  • I was given a tiny allowance. If I wanted more, I had to work for it in addition to my chores.
  • I had a paper route, cut grass, babysat for others, picked blackberries, collected returnable bottles, etc.
  • I knew how to use a hammer & tools and liked it. We collected used nails & lumber scraps for our treehouses. Recycling.

By example we learned reality 101.

Starting with we ate out infrequently. Drank our own coffee. Used hand me down clothing. Had a garden. Paid with cash. My mom made some of our clothing and repaired much. And of course, my mom’s sayings for every occasion such as “You’re not too old for your wants to hurt you.”

I am frugal to this day.

I made really good money most of my life, lived beneath my means and this served me well when my disability hit.

I am a strong believer in education, real education, not just receiving a piece of paper and piling up debt.

There are many fine institutions of higher learning training medical professionals, engineers, accountants, etc.

However, we have created a myth, perpetuated by an unholy alliance between institutions and politicians that a diploma will cure practically everything.

We are not educating our young folks. And older folks.

I am around a lot of young people near the university and I have advised many of them to buy a house in an area that is conducive to high rent demand and perhaps with a layout that facilitates having renters who will help pay the mortgage. I knew an attorney couple years ago who did just that.

Many of them are sharing houses and that is another good way to save money.

We are not sacrificing enough, as our Greatest Generation did, to get started or managing our spending habits.

Just examine what is thriving in the economy. Restaurants, breweries, coffee shops, tattoo parlors, etc. None of which are essential for survival or condusive to saving and prospering.

We are not prepared for marriage and having kids and we are not being educated about the costs or responsibilities.

Too many people are having kids too soon without having the necessary funds or skills.

What more important skill to be educated about?

Our understanding of survival skills, cost versus benefit and common sense must increase, not attendance at college, restaurants, breweries, coffee shops, tattoo parlors, etc.

Wells
