Coronavirus Situation Is Quickly Going From Bad To Worse
Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak
Senator Elizabeth Warren announced a bill that would use funding for President Donald Trump’s “racist border wall” to combat the coronavirus outbreak – a plan that is earning plenty of eye rolls on social media.
Warren is not letting the coronavirus crisis go to waste. The Massachusetts senator tweeted on Thursday a bill that would move funding from construction of the southern border wall in the US to the Department of Health and Human Services and US Aid to fight the disease.
The senator warned that the virus poses a “serious health, diplomatic and economic threat.” Her bill would remove “all funding” from Trump’s “racist border wall” to “combat” the disease.
The idea of lowering border security in the middle of an international outbreak and capitalizing on the disease to once again call the president “racist” has not exactly gone over well.
“So how do you control the spread if you can’t control who comes into your country, genius?” ‘Justified’ actor and outspoken conservative Nick Searcy tweeted in response to Warren’s announcement.
Globalist ideologues, bureaucrats, and elected Democrats have said the United States’ response to protecting American citizens from the coronavirus should be to keep America’s borders open to the world.
While the deadly coronavirus spreads across the globe, The Atlantic writer James Hamblin wrote this week that the U.S. should actually consider opening its borders:
Italy, Iran, and South Korea are now among the countries reporting quickly growing numbers of detected COVID-19 infections. Many countries have responded with containment attempts, despite the dubious efficacy and inherent harms of China’s historically unprecedented crackdown. Certain containment measures will be appropriate, but widely banning travel, closing down cities, and hoarding resources are not realistic solutions for an outbreak that lasts years. All of these measures come with risks of their own. Ultimately some pandemic responses will require opening borders, not closing them. At some point the expectation that any area will escape effects of COVID-19 must be abandoned: The disease must be seen as everyone’s problem. [Emphasis added]
To the contrary, President Trump’s administration has imposed a travel ban on China where not only are Chinese nationals barred from entering the U.S. at this time, but foreign nationals who have recently visited China as well.
The announcement came as bureaucrats at the World Health Organization (WHO) have demanded nations to keep their borders open, Reuters reported:

Break out the pussy hats and vuvuzelas, folks, because the neo-liberal Resistance is back, and this time they’re not playing around. No more impeachments and investigations. It’s time to go mano-a-mano with Trump, and they’ve finally got just the bad hombre to do it. No, not Bernie Sanders, you commies. A battle-hardened Resistance fighter. El Caballo Pequeño! El Jefe Mínimo! Subcomandante Michael Bloomberg!
Yes, that’s right, Michael Bloomberg, multi-billionaire Republicrat oligarch, has mobilized a guerrilla army of overpaid PR professionals, Wall Street sociopaths, liberal racists, and anti-outdoor-smoking fanatics, and is steamrolling toward the Democratic convention to buy a brokered nomination and save America from “Putinism.”
From comments section:
In this report we take a closer look inside the World Military Games opening ceremony held in Wuhan China weeks before the Coronavirus outbreak. Is it just a coincidence that a UN themed pandemic simulation of a global coronavirus outbreak took place the same day, as the UN themed opening ceremonies in Wuhan, ground zero for the outbreak? We also examine which nation will fill the vacuum now that the worlds biggest economy has been crippled by the outbreak.
The 2019 Military World Games opened in Wuhan, China. The Games, held every four years, are the top multi-sport event for military personnel from across the globe. This year, the Games lasted 10 days and were the largest edition ever.
Mason’s aim is to make Batters aware that chemical-dependent, industrial agriculture is a major cause of an ongoing public health crisis and is largely responsible for an unfolding, catastrophic ecological collapse in the UK and globally. Mason places agrochemicals at the centre of her argument, especially globally ubiquitous glyphosate-based herbicides, the use of which have spiralled over the last few decades.
Batters is given information about important studies that suggest glyphosate causes epigenetic changes in humans and animals (diseases skip a generation before appearing) and that it is a major cause of severe obesity in children in the UK, not least because of its impact on the gut microbiome. As a result, Mason says, we are facing a global metabolic health crisis that places glyphosate at the heart of the matter.
A careful reading of the news provides that Mike Bloomberg, who had two Russian grandfathers, is Putin’s asset.
Lawmakers Are Warned That Russia Is Meddling to Re-elect Trump – New York Times, February 20 2020
Rather than impersonating Americans as they did in 2016, Russian operatives are working to get Americans to repeat disinformation, the officials said. That strategy gets around social media companies’ rules that prohibit “inauthentic speech.”
It is Bloomberg, working as a Russian operative, who pays the trolls that repeat disinformation.
Twitter suspends 70 pro-Bloomberg ‘spam’ accounts – The Hill, February 21, 2020
The temporary employees recruited by Bloomberg’s camp are given the title “deputy field organizer” and make $2,500 a month to promote his White House bid among their followers. The employees can choose to use campaign-approved language in their posts.Twitter said the practice violated its “Platform Manipulation and Spam Policy,” which was established in 2019 to respond to Russia’s expansive troll network that was tapped in 2016 to meddle in the U.S. elections.
I suppose when Jeff Bozo’s Blog discovers that Putin is playing three-dimensional chess with himself using Bernie Sanders as the White Side and Mike Bloomberg as the Black Side, it will finally declare that to save the US from Russian meddling, the very notion and institution of regular elections, and the massive organisation, funding systems and networks, and marketing campaigns and promotions associated with the 4-year election cycle must finally be declared harmful to American interests and done away with. WaPo will finally advocate for a one-man police state. Democracy truly dies in the darkness of delirium and derangement. Thank you, WaPo.

In fact, despite the ongoing discussion, “the Federal Government,” Richard Maxwell and Toby Miller point out, “seems irrevocably split over the desire for innovation versus safety, and we are the victims of the race to 5G.”
If such claims seem like hyperbole, let us consider the testimony of a disinterested recognized authority. Paul Héroux, expert in epidemiology, biostatistics and public health, testified in 2018 that 5G is “a new threat on biological systems.” An abundance of research underwrites his position. Not that the industry itself has cared enough to consider the human health consequences.
Filmmaker Sabine El Gemayel points out that the Trump administration is throwing caution to the wind and presently plotting a strategy to implement 5G “despite potential dangers of this technology for human health and the environment.” Indeed, we might do well to remember that dispersed and targeted sources of radiation, like the sun and directed energy weapons (DEWs), have tangible effects on all life.
As of Sunday, a total of eight people in Hong Kong had been diagnosed with the disease originating from the mainland China city of Wuhan, with three more patients added to the list. Hong Kong has declared a state of emergency over the outbreak and rolled out measures to prevent the spread of the infection.
One of these was meant to reserve a newly-built empty public housing building in the Fanling area as a backup quarantine area for people who may have contacted infected patients but don’t show symptoms themselves.
But the decision has sparked protests from some local residents fearful that the building would pose a public health threat. On Sunday, some seemed to have taken their fears to another level, by using firebombs.

In the wake of the incident the Hong Kong health authorities said the plan to use the building was suspended. Several other sites in more isolated locations have been set aside for the same purpose.
[Hardly a “bizarre” attack. As per usual, the “people” have more common sense than their “leaders.” I am reminded of the rank and file regular workers in those “Alien” movies who exhibited more wisdom and common sense than their malevolent bosses. — S. Byron Gassaway]
