President Donald Trump has declared this day, this 15th day of March, 2020 AD, (Anno Domini – the Year of our Lord), to be a National Day of Prayer, in order to bring the country soulfully together in a battle against an evil enemy called the coronavirus.
The President keeps his religious beliefs personal, as do many people of faith. As the leader of the nation, it’s comforting when the most powerful man in the world can be humbled in prayer. It’s inspirational and motivational to bring a nation together for just a moment in unity.
Many President’s before have called for a day of prayer. During the Civil War, Abraham Lincoln said about prayer, “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”
The President has been very proficient in working with industry leaders that are the infrastructure of the food and essentials supply chain in this country. Their cooperation is extremely reassuring to all Americans. Knowing that not only the government is working for them, but that private industry is also working to bring their products to the shelves. People need to stop hoarding and listening to the fake news media.
The President asked during the daily coronavirus briefing that people do not panic. There is no need to hoard food and essentials. Stores will stay open, and will sometimes close for cleaning and disinfection. Although the coronavirus is contagious, the people most vulnerable are those with autoimmune diseases and lung disorders. The elderly and those with limited mobility need the help of their friends and neighbors to help them get the things they need. Volunteer your time to check up on your neighbors, especially those in need.
Healthy people might get sick, but the severity has been survivable. The number of deaths in the United States has been with the elderly and those with underlining conditions. As a matter of fact, more people have died from influenza flu than the coronavirus. So far this flu season, 16,000 Americans have died from flu, according to the CDC. At this time, there were 82,549 confirmed cases of coronavirus worldwide and at least 2,810 deaths, according to the latest figures from health officials. The illness has now spread to more than 40 countries. In America, 11 people have perished from the coronavirus, all of them were in their 80’s and with existing health conditions.
China has consistently refused to give accurate numbers. The China Communist Party (CCP), has prevented information from getting to the public. Even punishing their people for speaking the truth. People have been known to disappear after making public statements about the virus. It is rumored those people end up being involuntary organ donors.
The fake news media has been very irresponsible covering the coronavirus. As Dr. Drew has pointed out in this interview, the media has exploited the coronavirus for ratings. Why else would people rush out and buy hoards of toilet paper when the virus doesn’t cause dysentery? For you leftists that read my blog and don’t know what dysentery is, it causes nasty poopy problems.
So far, the President has put into place travel restrictions out of abundance of caution. Declared a National Emergency. Signed a 80 billion dollar bill to combat the virus. Restricted foreign travel. That has proven to be a wise decision. The fake news media has been creating a panic by blaming the President for the coronavirus. Mass hysteria stoked by the fake news media and the socialist democrats, has mislead the public into believing the government is not taking appropriate action to protect the people. The Fake News Media LIES!
As a result of reporting the truth, this journalist was suspended for reporting the truth. Trish Regan, Fox Business, was suspended by Fox News Business for covering a story truthfully. Fox News used to be a real cable news outlet that once claimed to be “Fair and Balanced”, but now they are competing for Fake News CNN’s low ratings. Trish Regan is one of Fox Business stellar journalists anchors. She was saying what we were all thinking. Who is pulling Fox News chains? It’s disappointing to see a once reliable news source decay into the swamp of fake news propaganda.
How far was the fake news media up Barry the Bullshitter’s Ass? Pretty far, and they still haven’t come up for air. It’s no wonder why we call them the enemy of the people. They are unfit to be called journalists. Propagandists, yes, but not journalists.
Some good news for President Trump today. The FED lowered interest rates to 0-0.25% including adding new cash to the economy to help drive the economy. The President has been in contact with major grocery store companies and food producers to dispel fears of food shortages. The fake news media has been over-hyping the coronavirus to panic the public with false claims. This has led to hoarding of food and essentials. This panic buying is caused by something more evil than the coronvirus, the Fake News Media.
Vice President Mike Pence needs to coordinate with his coronavirus team to have a consistent message. Too often, Dr. Fauci will say things which the fake news media distorts into panic, by design. They take pieces out of the Fauci’s statements and distort the context. They are using these statements as political weapon.
There has never been that I can remember where the government and private industry has come together as a partnership to address this crisis. This is far different from the 1940’s war effort to coordinate the government and industry. In this case, the government is providing the incentives and allowing industry to expedite the needs. It is unique because the government is not directing, but relying on industry innovation to do what it needs to deliver. From a management point of view, the government is incentivizing and communicating. In other words, the government is getting out of the way to allow industry to do what it needs. That’s how capitalism works. It’s not central planning.
The left is taking another approach. A Draconian approach. Socialist democrats have suggested removing people from their homes and families if they have the virus. By force, if need be. This is what Communists China is doing to their own citizens. Forcing people not to gather in groups of larger than 12, staying 6 feet away from other people, put a curfew on the population. It’s a socialist dream come true, barricade the people in their homes. Stop all commerce.
At the close of this Pule ka Lā (Day of Prayer) I leave you with the Pule a ka Haku (The Lords Prayer).
We are blessed with a President that had the foresight to put into place the mechanism to deal with this worldwide pandemic. Despite the media and the Trump haters calling the President xenophobic and racist. Now the Trump haters are saying Trump was too slow to react, wasn’t prepared, hasn’t done enough, and mishandled the crisis. All while these same people were trying to impeach the President. Congress couldn’t get anything done. President Trump was way ahead of the curve in doing what was needed to prevent the virus from spreading. He gets no credit from the fake news media. I believe the majority of the public sees past this. How do I know? Just look at the cable news ratings.
God Bless President Trump, the American People, and the United States of America
Our weather today is mostly overcast with brief showers. Temperatures in the upper 70’s with humidity at 87%. Variable breezes. It feels muggy because of the warm moist air being dragged up from the south. As the low pressure system approaches from the north, it is likely to form a Kona Low. We’re under a flood advisory till Tuesday evening.
