Good Friday is the Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. The Paschal Triduum, Holy Triduum, or Easter Triduum, or the Three Days, is the period of three days that begins with the liturgy on the evening of Maundy Thursday, reaches its high point in the Easter Vigil, and closes with evening prayer on Easter Sunday.
Aloha Friday starts the Easter weekend. It is also day 17 of the Stay At Home statewide directive. Honolulu city is going to start a curfew tonight from 11PM to 5AM. I’m not sure just what that will accomplish, but here we are.
For several days, the fake news media has been citing “sources” saying that President Trump received intel briefings in November 2019 warning of an impending pandemic. Those “sources” are false. The director of DIA’s National Center for Medical Intelligence issued a rare, unrequested statement regarding COVID-19.
The fake news media made this up. They lied. The fake news media’s hatred for President Trump is so vile, that they would fabricate false information to the public. This is criminal fraud. The general public will never learn the truth. The public will believe that President Trump didn’t act on information back in November of 2019. The fake news media is saying the President put people at risk deliberately.
ABC World News Tonight (Fake News) reported this lie on their nightly broadcast. I do watch the fake news so I can record their lies. The public is being deceived by a news media that is abusing its Constitutional First Amendment to a Free Press. This is a great disservice to the American People. There is no accountability to hold the fake news media responsible for spreading misinformation. A mistake is one thing, and issuing a retraction is taking responsibility. Continuing to repeat a lie as news is contemptuous.
For a second time, Nazi Piglosi, has held up another Small Business Aid bill because it didn’t have more leftists goodies that the democrats want. The democrats want special projects that will not help small businesses get the relief they need to remain solvent. These are paychecks for workers and employers and the democrats have again held up aid to the American People.
Remember the first CARES Act was held up because Nazi Piglosi wanted millions of dollars for the Kennedy Center. An Artsy Fartsy entertainment center which no one can use because of social distancing. After those millions of dollars were sent to the Kennedy Center, the center promptly laid off all their workers. Big help from Nazi Piglosi. Now this wicked witch of San Fran is holding up relief aid again. I hope people remember this come November election. And don’t fall for Mail-In Voting – it’s Voter Fraud.
How about that “Social Distancing”? It’s being weaponized to control the masses. You could be in the park, alone, and be arrested for violating social distancing rules. This has been happening quite often around the world. The Center for Disease Catastrophes “Social Distancing” rules are a tad bit restrictive. Maybe even too extreme.
Former Colorado State Patrol Trooper Matt Mooney told ABC News he was handcuffed in front of his 6-year-old on a near-empty softball field by Brighton police officers enforcing social distancing rules.
A paddleboarder was arrested in Malibu Thursday after ignoring lifeguards’ orders to get out of the ocean amid social distancing rules, authorities said.
In Hawai’i, you can paddleboard on the ocean, surf, fish, but sitting on a blanket on the beach, alone and away from others, it’s forbidden. You can get arrested for not following the social distancing rules. At first, I though these were just isolated incidents. An overreaction to the pandemic by over zealous officials. Yet it seems social distancing rules here, are the same as the Communist Chinese rules by locking people up in their homes and barricading them. See how this is working?
Wasn’t the idea of social distancing to keep a minimum of 6 feet away from others? We’re told not to congregate in crowds with close contact. We’re not supposed to act like spring breakers playing a massive game of twister, whilst doing belly shots of booze. Are the rules to social distancing now applied to activities where you are more that 100 yards away from anyone, and still get arrested for violating the rules?
You can now get arrested for attending church. Your priest, your pastor, your religious leaders, can get hauled away for bringing people together to pray. Yet we can go into grocery stores to gather provisions on items that have been picked over by others before you. Grocery store clerks are always around people and are more at risk to contracting the virus.
This isn’t social distancing. This is “Social Engineering”. It’s called the “New Normal”. For just a small amount of security, people will surrender their liberties. There are those in government that want to keep these social distancing rules in place till June of this year, some have called for August. Will we still have an economy then? Will there still be a country? Will there be a functioning Constitutional government?
Congress is now voting on legislation by voice vote and through long distance communications. They don’t want to risk getting the virus. I say, if grocery store workers can be on the job, then Congress should also be on job. This is no way to run a government. The President is there working. Congress should do the same.
To be crystal clear, prevention on the spread of the virus is important. However, it seem the mortality rate varies differently. People with underlining conditions, immune deficiencies, the elderly, and those with severe health issues, do need to be more cautious around people. That’s true even without the coronavirus present.
People that are healthy may not be as susceptible to the adverse effects of the virus. There are drug therapies that have shown great promise in the recovery rate for those severely affected by the virus. However, that’s being politicized by the left. For two reasons why a simple generic drug is being politicized: 1) The President said it looks promising. 2) Big Pharma and others can’t make a lot of money using it.
The fake news media has thoroughly dismissed the drug’s promising results. Yet, there have been several studies where the drug has been documented to slowdown the deadly effects of the coronavirus. The argument that the drug is untested is completely false. The drug has been around for over 50 years. There are no reported deaths where the drug has been used to fight the coronavirus. Reports are that within hours of people nearly losing their life to coronavirus, the drug has had a 180 degree turn-around.
I’m concerned by the epidemiology models that Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx have been consistently wrong. Predictions have been used to guidelines for the social distancing rules. First we were told of hundreds of thousands of people will die of the virus, and now those numbers are down to the 10’s of thousands. This overly pessimistic models are also driving the economy into recession. The longer people are out of work, the cure becomes worse than the virus.
Remember we don’t have a cure for AIDS. There’s are therapy drugs and other treatments to lower the mortality and morbidity rates.
The CDC counts any deaths that tested positive for the virus as coronavirus as corona related deaths. That’s inflating the numbers. Suppose I have the virus, and I get hit by a bus and I die from a punctured lung. That gets counted as coronairus related death. Dr. Birx said that all deaths that tested positive for the virus will be recorded as coronavirus related.
One last thing. We cannot as a country keep spending like we are doing to fight this virus. The cure will become worse than the virus. You may die of the virus, but you’ll also die of poverty. Pick your poison. Either way, we’re on the road to serfdom. This has been the goal of the socialist democrats for complete control of industry, banks, and healthcare. All run by a collective citizenship and owned by the state. I call it communism lite. I don’t see the difference between socialism and communism. It means ownership of property, your happiness, isn’t yours to own.
Keep these truths in mind as you celebrate the Easter weekend. People in our government are using this coronavirus pandemic to erode our liberties. Don’t let the cure be worse than the virus.
Our weather today is a mix of sun and rain. Temperatures are in the mid 70’s with humidity at 92%. It’s very calm, very lite breezes. Very quiet. I’m venturing out to replenish supplies for the weekend. Got plenty of movies I recorded during this free movie weekend. The rain is going to keep us inside all weekend anyway. I’ll make the best of it.
This would have been the start of the Merrie Monarch Festival. The week of Hula competition, arts and crafts, flowers and leis, inter-island families and Halaus gathering for a great Polynesian tradition. For a week, Hawai’i Island becomes the center of the Hula world. It will be sorely missed this year.
