Trump Warns Of Drugs, Depression, Suicides

Bill Donohue
by Bill Donohue: Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments on remarks made by President Trump on the social effects of coronavirus:

In his March 29 briefing on coronavirus, President Donald Trump alluded to the social consequences of not taking seriously the threat it poses. He mentioned the “massive” rates of drug use, depression, and suicide that might happen if he took a more relaxed approach to the disease.

Trump’s critics have played their “fact check game,” questioning how accurate his statement is. Even if we allow for hyperbole, Trump is right to call attention to these often neglected side effects associated with the stress and isolation engendered by a pandemic.

What Trump did not say is that one of the greatest tonics guarding against these conditions is religion; it is also true that those most at risk are non-believers. This is not a grey area: the studies are numerous and the findings are impressive. [The evidence is cited in my book The Catholic Advantage: Why Health, Happiness, and Heaven Await the Faithful.]

Dr. Harold G. Koenig is the nation’s leading scholar in the study of well-being. He teaches psychiatry and medicine at Duke University, and is the director of Duke’s Center for Spirituality, Theology and Health. He and his associates examined 278 studies on the relationship between religion and alcohol and drug use. They found that 86 percent of the studies concluded that the more religious a person was, the less likely he was to indulge. They also found that of the 185 studies on religion and drug abuse, the inverse relationship between religion and drugs was found 84 percent of the time.

Frank Newport is editor-in-chief of Gallup, and his surveys disclose that “very religious Americans are less likely to report that they have been diagnosed with depression than those who are moderately religious or nonreligious.” Dr. Koenig and associates found that in 61 percent of the studies, religious Americans are less likely to be depressed than nonbelievers, and are more likely to recover at a faster rate from depression. Atheists, they learned, are more likely to be depressed. Worse, the secular care they choose leaves them more likely to be stuck in their condition longer than those who avail themselves of religious care.

Wayne State University sociologist Steven Stack did a study in which he rated twenty-five nations on a scale that measured religious commitment, and then sought to see if there was any relationship with suicide rates. He found that the more religious a person is, the less likely he is to commit suicide. Sociologist Rodney Stark looked at the data in America’s largest metropolitan areas and found that the higher the church membership rate, the lower the suicide rate. Similarly, one review of more than 100 studies found that in 87 percent of them, religion was related to a lower incidence of suicide.

None of this is to suggest that people treat religion as some sort of mental-hygiene drug. Make no mistake about it, the beneficent effects of religious convictions and practice are dependent on their sincere application. But if they are, chances are that in times of stress and isolation such persons will fare much better than their non-believing counterparts.

It would be great if President Trump were to call attention to these findings. It might inspire many Americans to reconsider their personal relationship with God.

Using a Crisis

by Kerby Anderson: No doubt you have heard the quote: “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.” The oft-repeated quote is from Rahm Emanuel, who was President Obama’s Chief of Staff at the time.

Back then, he was talking about the 2008 financial crisis. This time, a number of progressive groups want to use the virus crisis to attack the president and a few Democratic politicians want to use it to promote their progressive agenda.

A Democrat-aligned Super PAC announced it will spend $5 million on negative ads about President Trump’s response to the coronavirus. News reports say that the group is funded by a “liberal dark money group” that will spread misinformation on the president’s crisis response. If the Twitter ad that came out the other day is any indication of what future ads will be like, we can conclude that the word “misinformation” is too soft a term for what we will be seeing and reading.

Meanwhile, politicians have been using the virus crisis to propose various progressive initiatives. Mayor Bill de Blasio has been trying to make the case for a nationalization of crucial industries in this country. Socialists like Senator Bernie Sanders and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez argue that the current health crisis illustrates why we need a single-payer, universal health care program controlled by the federal government.

A mayor in Illinois declared that a coronavirus emergency allowed her to ban the sale of guns. A few members of Congress and some mayors now argue for the commutation of sentences to release prisoners because of the virus crisis. And a few district attorneys have already announced a reduction in arrests for what are termed “low-level, non-violent crimes.”

During the next few months, we will need more discernment than ever, given the fact that these groups and politicians aren’t about to let a crisis go to waste.

Should The Constitution Be Amended To Prohibit Court-Packing?

by Richard McCarty: Democrats have been angered and terrified by the progress that President Donald Trump has made in appointing conservative judges to the federal bench, especially to the Supreme Court.

As a result, some Democrats are openly advocating for expanding the Court to pack it with liberal justices. Fortunately, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) has introduced a resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution to cap the size of the Supreme Court at nine justices; he has been joined by 14 other Republican Senators. On the House side, two Republicans have introduced resolutions to do the same thing, and both of those pieces of legislation have several cosponsors. Now Republicans should demand votes on these resolutions.

Liberals have long been able to turn to the courts to get virtually anything that they wanted when they could not win at the ballot box. Of course, the courts have also been very helpful to them in delaying or halting policies, programs, and projects that they opposed. So it should not be surprising that Democrats have resorted to desperate measures to maintain as much of their judicial power as possible.

For over 160 years, there have been nine seats on the Supreme Court. During the first 80 years of our Republic, the size of the Court varied between six and ten seats. That changed in 1869 when the Circuit Judges Act fixed the size of the Court at nine seats. In 1937, Franklin D. Roosevelt tried to expand the court and pack it with liberals who would rubberstamp his New Deal policies, but his scheme failed due to Congressional opposition.

In addition to left-wing commentators and activists, a number of Democrat politicians have either embraced packing the Court or expressed an openness to doing so. For example, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and former Democrat presidential candidate Tom Steyer (D-Calif.) both support court-packing. Ten other former Democrat presidential candidates, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), former Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-South Bend, Ind.), and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.), were open to the idea.

To be sure, Democrats are right to be worried about the courts. Not only has Trump replaced Anthony Kennedy, a moderate swing vote on the Court, with a conservative; but he has also flipped three circuit courts of appeal from having a majority of judges on those circuits appointed by a Democrat president to having a majority of judges appointed by a Republican president. A second term for Trump along with a Republican Senate could mean that Democrats have decisively lost the Supreme Court for a generation; and they could soon be facing a judiciary with very few circuits still dominated by liberal judges.

Of course, Democrats have no one to blame but themselves for the predicament in which they find themselves. Had Democrats been willing to work in a bipartisan fashion on health care reform in the early Obama years, they might not have lost control of the Senate in 2014. Furthermore, had Democrats not eliminated the filibuster for lower court judges while they had the Senate majority and had they not filibustered the nomination of Gorsuch, they might not have lost the ability to filibuster Supreme Court nominees. But at every turn, Democrats made the wrong choice, and now they are paying for it.

For decades, conservatives have labored to gain control of the federal courts, especially the Supreme Court; but Republican leaders never advocated for packing the Court. Instead, they sought to elect Republican presidents and Senators. The most radical thing that Republicans considered —but delayed implementing — was eliminating the filibuster for Supreme Court justices. As we are now on the cusp of a solid constitutionalist majority on the Court, Republicans must act to defend those gains by demanding votes on a Constitutional amendment to prevent Democrats or anyone else from packing the Court.

Coronavirus Causing a Right Turn

Lloyd Marcus
by Lloyd Marcus: My brother who lives in Baltimore is a fellow black Christian conservative Republican. He phoned to warn me not to mention Trump to a senior relative. Fake news media’s corona-madness has driven her hatred to the extreme. Now, she wants him dead!

Our relative’s irrational hatred for Trump is exactly what Democrats/fake news media still strive to create since the day he was elected.

However, whenever Trump speaks directly to the American people, they believe him, gravitate to him, and love his America first agenda.

This is why Democrats/fake news media continuously seek to block Trump from communicating directly to We the People. Absurdly, they claim his tweeting is an impeachable crime. The Democrats’/fake news media was thrilled when coronavirus hit our shores, giving them an opportunity to demand that Trump stop holding rallies. The mega thousands who attend Trump rallies include a growing number of Democrats eager to jump aboard the Trump Train.

To further block the people from hearing Trump, fake news media has outrageously decided to stop broadcasting Trump’s coronavirus update press conferences.

Fear not, folks. Every sinister scheme against Trump has failed and corona-madness will fail also. Millions are praying for our president. “No weapon formed against you shall prosper.” Isaiah 54:17

Laser-focused on the emotional and financial well-being of each and every American, Trump is seeking to get relief funds into their hands ASAP.

Insidiously evil Nancy Pelosi held up the process. She is callously exploiting the suffering of Americans to force Trump to sign a relief bill with funding for unrelated radical leftist agenda items. Pelosi wants wind and solar tax credits, mandates on corporate board diversity, advancing abortion, mandating the LGBTQ agenda, the Green New Deal and much more. Sen. Ted Cruz’s response was, “What in the hell does that have to do with this crisis?!”

I pray that Democrat party loyalists will finally realize that their party as they knew it is gone. It has morphed into an anti-Christian and anti-American enemy within, driven by a spirit of anti-Christ. The only thing, I repeat, the only thing Democrats care about is transforming America into their socialist/communist dream. Our economy, healthcare, emotional well-being and the loss of American lives are deemed acceptable collateral damage on the road to creating their anything goes sexually and totally government controlled new America. Therefore, Pelosi and her minions do not give a rat’s derriere about you.

Remember that song, “A Little Good News”? I would like to thank businesses across America who are stepping up, producing hand sanitizer, masks, and providing much needed goods and services. This is who we are folks. We are Americans.

My buddy alerted me to this good news that you will not hear reported by fake news media. Dennis Prager reported that a few weeks ago, Neil Ferguson of the UK’s Imperial College said that half a million would die of coronavirus in the UK and two to three million in the U.S. These scary numbers empowered leftists to demand that everything close down. Now, the scientist is saying 20,000 will die in the UK, not 500,000.

More good news is seeing commercials for Christian programming during secular TV shows. The Bible tells Christians to be salt. Salt makes a difference. I have criticized churches for behaving in a cowardly manner, not adding salt to our culture. During the corona crisis, more and more pastors are speaking out about how our culture has gone down the wrong road. It is funny how trouble always brings us back to God and on our knees.

It is good news that God has blessed us with Donald J. Trump in the Oval Office. Democrats/fake news media believe no cost is too high to end Trump’s presidency. This includes collapsing the U.S. economy and destroying and even ending American lives.

Despite Democrats/fake news media launching a tidal wave of false reporting, claiming he is willing to murder Americans to profit his big-business buddies, Trump is remarkably unaffected. Behaviorally, Trump says, “Screw their false reporting! I’m going to do what is best for the American people. They want to get back to work. They want their lives back.”

Our courageous president has announced plans to cautiously begin reopening America in various sectors ASAP. Optimism is contagious. Trump believes our economy will bounce back stronger than ever. I agree.

We are witnessing a slight “right turn” in America, back to God, family, patriotism, principles and values which have made America great. I say, “Praise the Lord!”

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to a Quorum

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kent.) 
by Paul Jacob, Contributing Author: On Friday, the talking heads and Twitterati excoriating Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kent.) were so scandalized that they couldn’t quite get to telling us what terrible thing he had done.

“GOP’s Massie outrages House,” screamed The Washington Post headline. The paper informed that “the Republican from northern Kentucky has frequently voted no on issues large and small, even against the wishes of GOP leaders.”

Wow, is that allowed?

With Congress poised to shovel $2.2 trillion to citizens and businesses by unanimous consent, i.e., without a recorded roll call vote, Mr. Massie balked, thereby requiring a quorum to physically come to the capitol to vote on the relief package.

“I came here to make sure our Republic doesn’t die by unanimous consent in an empty chamber,” Massie declared on the House floor, “and I request a recorded vote.”

President Trump urged the “third rate Grandstander” be tossed out of the Grand Old Party. And former U.S. Senator and 2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry noted — of all things — his complete agreement with Trump, tweeting that “Massie has tested positive for being an a**hole. He must be quarantined to prevent the spread of his massive stupidity.”

Rep. Max Rose (D-N.Y.) offered that Massie was “disgusting” and “inhumane,” and that if the vote was pushed “back 24 hours there will be blood on [his] hands.”

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) boasted of having asked the congressman, “Why don’t you just back off?”

Facing the biggest spending bill of all time, Massie’s notion of Congresspeople voting on the record? Hardly radical. But in the face of the COVID-19 threat, bringing legislators back to the capitol entailed real risk.

Yet come back they did. And just to show Massie how wrong he was in alleging a cover-up, they agreed to a roll-call vote so that there was full accountability.

Take THAT, Massie!

Wait . . . Congress didn’t go on the record?!

They came back and yet, as Massie pointed out, “they still refused to have a recorded vote.”

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

Note: One spending item, which Massie had specifically complained about, was $25 million for the Kennedy Center. Then, mere hours after President Trump signed the legislation, the Kennedy Center honchos fired the National Symphony Orchestra, informing them “that paychecks would end this week.”

Will Coronavirus End the Fed?

Dr. Ron Paul
by Dr. Ron Paul: September 17, 2019 was a significant day in American economic history. On that day, the New York Federal Reserve began emergency cash infusions into the repurchasing (repo) market. This is the market banks use to make short-term loans to each other. The New York Fed acted after interest rates in the repo market rose to almost 10 percent, well above the Fed’s target rate.

The New York Fed claimed its intervention was a temporary measure, but it has not stopped pumping money into the repo market since September. Also, the Federal Reserve has been expanding its balance sheet since September. Investment advisor Michael Pento called the balance sheet expansion quantitative easing (QE) “on steroids.”

I mention these interventions to show that the Fed was taking extraordinary measures to prop up the economy months before anyone in China showed the first symptoms of coronavirus.

Now the Fed is using the historic stock market downturn and the (hopefully) temporary closure of businesses in the coronavirus panic to dramatically increase its interventions in the economy. Not only has the Fed increased the amount it is pumping into the repo market, it is purchasing unlimited amounts of Treasury securities and mortgage-backed securities. This was welcome news to Congress and the president, as it came as they were working on setting up trillions of dollars in spending in coronavirus aid/economic stimulus bills.

This month the Fed announced it would start purchasing municipal bonds, thus ensuring the state and local government debt bubble will keep growing for a few more months.

The Fed has also created three new loan facilities to provide hundreds of billions of dollars in credit to businesses. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has stated that the Fed will lend out as much as it takes to revive the economy.

The Fed is also reducing interest rates to zero. We likely already have negative real interest rates because of inflation. Negative real interest rates are a tax on savings and thus lead to a lack of private funds available for investment, giving the Fed another excuse to expand its lending activities.

The Fed’s actions may appear to mitigate some of the damage of the coronavirus panic. However, by flooding the economy with new money, expanding asset purchases, and facilitating Congress and the president’s spending sprees, the Fed is exacerbating America’s long-term economic problems.

The Federal Reserve is unlikely to end these emergency measures after the government declares it is safe to resume normal life. Consumers, businesses, and (especially) the federal government are so addicted to low interest rates, quantitative easing, and other Federal Reserve interventions that any effort by the Fed to allow rates to rise or to stop creating new money will cause a severe recession.

Eventually the Federal Reserve-created consumer, business, and government debt bubbles will explode, leading to a major crisis that will dwarf the current coronavirus shutdown. The silver lining is that this next crisis could finally demolish the Keynesian welfare-warfare state and the fiat money system.

The Federal Reserve’s unprecedented interventions in the marketplace make it more urgent than ever that Congress pass, and President Trump sign, the Audit the Fed bill. This would finally allow the American people to learn the truth about the Fed’s conduct of monetary policy. Audit the Fed is a step toward restoring health to our economic system by ending the fiat money pandemic that facilitates the welfare-warfare state and the unstable, debt-based economy.

Sen. Tom Coburn Stood Tall for Taxpayers

Oklahoma U.S. senator and family doctor,
Tom Coburn helped Americans understand
the scope of Washington’s spending problem
by highlighting government waste. 
by Romina Boccia: Former Sen. Tom Coburn was a hero among fiscal conservatives and endless source of inspiration and courage. The Oklahoma Republican embodied financial stewardship, always showing great respect for the hard-earned tax dollars of working Americans.

Coburn, who died late Friday at 72, helped the American people better understand the size and scope of Washington’s spending problem by highlighting government waste.

His office helped to uncover a vast Social Security Disability Insurance fraud scheme with a plot line ripe for a movie or TV crime show.

He later proposed the first comprehensive reform of Social Security Disability Insurance to improve the disability determination process, reduce fraud, and ensure benefits are there for individuals with disabilities for whom the program was intended.

Coburn, a family doctor and obstetrician in Muskogee, Oklahoma, also led the way on reforms to entitlement programs and toward a better budget process that demanded accountability and fiscal restraint from lawmakers.

He earned the nickname “Dr. No” for confronting members of both parties in blocking fiscally irresponsible legislation.

Washington would be a much better place if it had more selfless and dedicated leaders like Tom Coburn.

He represented northeastern Oklahoma in the House from 1995 to 2001 before returning to his practice and then serving in the Senate from 2005 through 2014. He stepped down before the end of his second term after a recurrence of prostate cancer.

Coburn was popularly known for highlighting egregious government waste in Washington, including the notorious example of tiny shrimps on a treadmill and the perfect combo of scary and cute: Robo-Squirrel. His highly anticipated annual “Wastebook” served as a pertinent way to help hardworking, everyday Americans better grasp just how frivolously their government was spending their taxpayer dollars.

The examples became symbols for excessive government spending and highlighted the need for Congress to exercise better oversight over federal agencies and programs. His efforts to uncover waste inspired many other lawmakers to get in on the action.

Coburn didn’t just point out waste and abuse, though. He offered a comprehensive solution for how to turn around America’s deeply troubled fiscal outlook. He cared deeply about young Americans and future generations, who he knew would pay the price of his generation’s reckless spending.

His 2011 publication, “Back in Black,” provided a plan to reduce spending by $9 trillion over 10 years and eliminate deficits. Had policymakers followed more of his recommendations, America’s fiscal outlook would be much more sustainable today.

Coburn understood that overspending is a bipartisan affliction and he stated so clearly in his 2012 book with John Hart, “The Debt Bomb: A Bold Plan to Stop Washington from Bankrupting America.“ In the book, he also reflected on the 2010 Simpson-Bowles Commission, on which he served, calling President Barack Obama’s decision not to embrace its recommendations “one of the greatest failures of presidential leadership in American history.”

The commission’s failure seems to have marked the end of the attempt at a so-called Grand Bargain to improve America’s fiscal position through spending reforms and tax increases.

In 2013, a two-year investigation led by the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations under Coburn’s leadership uncovered a vast Social Security Disability Insurance fraud scheme involving a Kentucky lawyer, several physicians, and a rubber stamping administrative law judge who together defrauded the government to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars.

To prevent a similar fraud scheme from succeeding in the future and to address the looming insolvency of the disability insurance program, Coburn introduced a comprehensive reform package in the Senate. The Protecting Social Security Disability Act of 2014 became a guiding framework to improve the program’s integrity, encourage employment, and hold disability judges, lawyers, and doctors accountable.

Coburn’s legacy is marked by his consistent dedication to serving taxpayers even if it meant running the risk of upsetting some in his own party.

He is remembered for his steadfastness, principled positions, hard work, and kindness. He was a committed public servant who had a significant impact on public policy that will far outlast his time on earth.

Who's Funding the Coronavirus Political Trolls?

by Daniel Greenfield: Everyone gave something.

Steven Spielberg and his wife gave $100,000. His former partner, Jeffrey Katzenberg, gave another $100,000. The producers of Lost gave over $50,000. Jett actress Carla Gugino also chipped in.

Not to relief efforts dealing with the coronavirus, but to a hate campaign against Trump.

Everyone has their own brand of patriotism, and for some Hollywood celebrities, that meant giving big to Pacronym: a sleazy money machine targeting President Trump run by Tara McGowan. McGowan, a former 60 Minutes vet reporter turned Obama hack, was supposed to brilliantly transform Dem campaigning with innovative tactics like seeding fake news through fake local papers under Courier Newsroom, and Shadow Inc: the mysterious company behind the Iowa caucus disaster.

But McGowan has never found a sewer she couldn’t crawl out of and is relaunching her reputation by using the coronavirus crisis to run digital ads attacking President Trump. And donors to Pacronym, a PAC affiliate of McGowan’s Acronym, a non-profit, which somehow ties in with for-profits and a PAC, include Hollywood celebrities, writers, CEOs and financial whiz kids, helping divide America during a crisis.

The Hunt, which features lefty CEOs hunting down and killing conservatives, was written by Lost producer Damon Lindelof. The movie, shelved after criticism by President Trump, is back now that no one is paying attention. Lindelof is also a donor to Pacronym. As is the wife of Lost’s producer, J.J. Abrams, and CEO of Bad Robot, his production company, and Brian Weinstein, another Bad Robot executive.

Maybe The Hunt can get a sequel in which wealthy elites spread division and panic during a pandemic, while betting that they can ride out the effects of the virus inside their mansions and on their islands.

Other famous contributors to Pacronym include author Richard North Patterson, and Geraldine Brooks, the authoress most famous for penning, "Nine Parts of Desire: The Hidden World of Islamic Women."

And then there are the hip CEOs. Acronym, McGowan's mothership, was co-founded by Dollar Shave Club CEO Michael Dubin. Pacronym donors include Smartypants Vitamins founder Gordon Gould, while SoulCycle CEO Elizabeth Cutler and Knot co-founder Carley Roney helped fund McGowan's ambitions.

The hip rich elites poured money into McGowan’s scams and as the Obama vet launches a divisive campaign to undermine the leadership of a wartime president, they should be held accountable. At a time of fear and uncertainty, a controversial Dem operative is plotting to seed digital ads across Facebook sowing misinformation, and encouraging people to distrust President Trump’s efforts to fight the coronavirus: an irresponsible tactic that can have dangerous public health consequences.

Pacronym’s Facebook digital disinformation campaign targets Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Arizona, the same five states targeted by McGowan’s Courier plot to create fake local news sites. Coronavirus cases have sharply risen in Michigan and Pennsylvania, but McGowan is sticking to her plan to help elect Joe Biden by spreading uncertainty during a time when people need reassurance.

Americans need to know that they can trust the health advisories coming from the White House. It’s not a time to sow doubt and division. But Democrat political operatives have decided that it’s their moment.

The question is will Biden and other Democrats condemn McGowan’s dangerous campaign?

They ought to be asked that question. And asked to pledge that they will not hire McGowan or any other consultants and operatives who are undermining our response to the coronavirus crisis.

Will Steven Spielberg, Damon Lindelof, and, especially Michael Dubin, disavow the ugly monster they helped create?

Don’t count on it.

The National Democratic Redistricting Committee was a major Pacronym backer. Michael Halle, McGowan's husband, worked for the Buttigieg campaign. (As did Shadow Inc., which mismanaged the Iowa Caucuses that Buttigieg allegedly won). And Pacronym aren’t the only ones jumping in the sewer.

American Bridge, the Media Matters version of Pacronym, founded by unhinged smear artist David Brock, is running its own coronavirus misinformation ads meant to convince voters that the country is unprepared for the crisis.

“Coronavirus has the potential to infect millions of Americans and cripple our economy,” American Bridge president Bradley Beychok declared. "We’re going to make sure voters know just how dangerously the president is failing them.”

There's a special place in hell for hacks who see millions of potential pandemic infections as the perfect opportunity to hammer voters with messages of fear and doubt.

Beyond George Soros, American Bridge’s largest donors include Steven Spielberg and his wife who donated $500,000. Is that money now being used to divide the nation during a time of crisis?

Steven Spielberg could speak out and ask Pacronym and American Bridge to stop dividing the country.

The election is far away and there’s no urgent need to run digital ads right now. Attacking the President of the United States over the coronavirus undermines his leadership at a time when we need unity and decisive action. Instead Pacronym and American Bridge are encouraging fear, doubt and panic.

But don’t expect anyone in the media to ask Spielberg the hard questions.

Meanwhile the Never Trumpers of the Lincoln Project have rolled out their own ad comparing President Trump to the coronavirus. The ad, which masquerades as a warning about a virus, is meant to get the attention of a worried nation, but then switches to an attack on the President of the United States.

The only thing that the Lincoln Project’s ad proves is that even coronavirus lows have their own lows.

Diseases often breed in a swamp. And this feverish plot by the Washington D.C. consultant class to cash in on the coronavirus is something that could have only come out of the soulless swamp of D.C. politics.

But these schemes, by Pacronym, American Bridge, and the Lincoln Project, would go nowhere unless the funders of division are held accountable for incentivizing their dirty work with loads of cash.

No one should expect anything from creatures as fundamentally amoral as David Brock or Tara McGowan who long ago sold off anything resembling a soul for the opportunity to be players. They’re mercenaries, literally, David Brock was once just as rabidly to the right as he now is to the left, who cash in on the egomaniacal ambitions of Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and Wall Street donors who will roll up a dump truck full of money to the D.C. offices of any Obama or Clinton vet promising to use Facebook ads to brainwash flyover country voters into voting their way. They’re the supply, not the demand.

As America struggles with the consequences of a shutdown and a pandemic, it may be time to have a conversation about the role that power brokers in New York and California, some of the most affected states, have played in crippling our ability to respond to a national crisis that now threatens them.

Maybe when Tom Hanks gets over being treated for the coronavirus, he can talk to Steven about it.

Muslim Migrants Armed By Turkey Punch Through Greece’s Protective Fences

by Christine Douglass-Williams: The daily news of globalists flinging open the doors to mass Muslim migration has been overshadowed during the coronavirus outbreak, but it is still happening. The border between Greece and Turkey since Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan “opened the gates” to Muslim migration continues to be strife-ridden, as Muslim migrants keep trying to fight their way into Greece with the ambition of moving further into Europe. That conflict has now erupted into battles “resembling the First World War.”Scenes resembling the First World War are unfolding are unfolding on Europe’s frontier, with Greek border forces bathed in noxious fumes as Turkish police and, allegedly, Turkish-armed migrants bombard them with tear gas.The globalist initiative to risk the security of their citizens by opening their borders has been stalled, but by no means stopped, by the coronavirus pandemic. Jihad, migrant crime, disease and prudent economic policies were always ignored by globalists as they pursued their agenda. Such leaders have been kept safe via their own high-priced security, paid for by tax dollars, but now coronavirus has rendered them subject to danger like everyone else.

The scenes at the Greco-Turkish border demonstrate that the issue of reckless mass migration has not gone away and will not go away. It is merely on hold. Nothing has slowed down Erdogan in his quest to Islamize Europe. Remember: a large number of migrants at the Turkish-Greek border are not Syrians trying to escape the ravages of war, but North Africans.

“WATCH: Scenes Resembling First World War as ‘Battle of Evros’ Between Greeks, Migrants, Turks Continue,” by Jack Montgomery, Breitbart, March 25, 2020:Scenes resembling the First World War are unfolding are unfolding on Europe’s frontier, with Greek border forces bathed in noxious fumes as Turkish police and, allegedly, Turkish-armed migrants bombard them with tear gas.

The Islamist president of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, was believed to have bought the border crisis to an end by deciding that he would not keep his side of the Graeco-Turkish frontier open for illegal migrants wishing to break into Europe anymore last Wednesday, due to the risk spreading coronavirus.

However, it seems that thousands of migrants remain at the border regardless, and that Turkish personnel are continuing to support their efforts to punch through Greece’s protective fences — not least by bombarding their Greek counterparts with tear gas in social media footage which has been circulated by the Greek press.

Footage shot from the Greek side of the border and shared by Greek media outlet Proto Thema appears to show Greek personnel and army amublances [sic] bathed in noxious fumes in scenes reminiscent of the infamous gas attacks on the trenches of the First World War following one such bombardment.

The Greeks have themselves used tear gas to try and repel illegal aliens hurling rocks and petrol bombs at them, or attempting to tear down or otherwise dismantle border fencing — but recent videos show a number of migrants at the fences now appear to have been supplied with gas masks so they can sustain their attacks on the border regardless.

Turkish officials have previously claimed that at least 100,000 migrants have been released into Greece, but the Greek government disputes this, saying they have successfully held back tens of thousands and estimating the number who have made it through the land border in the hundreds.

Their task has not been made easier by the European Union’s past refusal to provide funding for robust border fences, which the bloc denounced as “pointless”……

From Sesame Street back to Azusa Street

by Mario Murillo: The cry of my heart is that men and women of God, who are cooped up, will get fed up. My hope is that vessels of God, who are locked down, will get fired up. I am asking God to ruin them for anything other than His work!

I am hoping that God will hit them with a combination punch. A straight jab that will awaken anger over the spirit of death and despair that is suffocating the greatest nation on earth. Followed by a right hook that will disgust them into admitting they have been living in fear of what people think.

I want you to see Satan yelling, “Yo’ Mamma!” right at you. Pastors, I want you to burn all your books on church growth, and start praying against the sorry guru who suckered you into using their putrefying programs.

Get sick! Not with a virus, but with yourself. Sick for letting boards and deacons scare you. Sick because you continually fretted over who might get offended. Sick because you stare out at the parking lot, counting cars, instead of looking up to heaven. And sick of the sermons that seem as if they were designed for Big Bird and the Cookie Monster.

Yeah, I’ll say it: My cry is that when the doors of Spirit-filled churches reopen, they will leave Sesame Street and run back to Azusa Street.

Nothing in this blog is radical. Nothing in this blog is negative or divisive. The problem with me is that I have been around too long and have seen too much. There is nothing more dangerous than an individual who understands why they are a Pentecostal. There is no one more unstoppable than the person who has been baptized in the Holy Spirit and who has experienced the tongues of fire.

I want you to rage against limp-wristed preaching, fog machines, romantic lighting, and that atmosphere that’s about as life giving as the waiting room at a DMV.

A scourge from hell has attacked our nation! That is why we need heroes! Thank God for the first responders, the courageous nurses, and the doctors. Thank God for our President who has been valiantly battling the swamp creatures. But it is time for a new group of heroes to appear: Christians who are full of the fire of God!

The testimony of Azusa Street needs to hit us like a Mack Truck.
William Seymour, who oversaw the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at the turn of the century, had none of our advantages, but we have none of his results. The glory and presence of God turned a rundown hall into a magnet for the entire world. Today, that movement is 650 million strong.

Modern experts have tried to teach us how to trick people into coming to church, but at Azusa Street, they stampeded to the altar, drawn by God alone—without any tricks. Brother Seymour began the most powerful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in modern history in an old rented building that was once a stable. It was so primitive that many times he would pray with his head hidden between two wooden milk crates that served as his pulpit. Then heaven would burst open and the presence of God would fall on those present. It wasn’t a choreographed meeting. It wasn’t a slick presentation. It was raw glory.

Don’t be the fool who says modern society is too sophisticated for Pentecost. “The weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood]. Our weapons are divinely powerful for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Christ…” (2 Corinthians 10:4,5 AMPLIFIED, 1974 ed.)

I love that translation! Destroying sophisticated arguments! Nothing new has come down the pike that can withstand the conviction of the Holy Spirit. The devil can’t form a weapon that will prosper against a truly Spirit-filled army.

Oh God, let it be! Let frustration build like magma in a volcano! Let the silliness of our human designs task us. Let our old sermon notes torture us. Awaken, O Lord, the greatest sleeping giant in the world—The American Spirit-filled church of Jesus Christ!

Healthy Americans In A Healthy Economy: A Public Health Strategy For Economic Recovery

by Newt Gingrich: Some in the news media would like to pit economic recovery against public health. They write and talk as if you can have one or the other – but not both.

This is a profound misunderstanding of the necessary connection between healthy Americans and a healthy economy. First, public health measures and economic growth and prosperity measures are rheostats rather than on/off switches. They can be moved to different intensities based on need.

Even in the direst health emergency, a large part of the economy must function. Without electricity, water, sewage, trucked-in supplies, groceries, etc., the entire health system would collapse. The loss of life would be far greater.

Even with a booming economy, there are public health aspects – including safe food, medicine, effective emergency drugs, and a host of other elements we blend to help Americans have healthy lives with healthy jobs.

The challenge today is how we blend the best of public health with the best of economic growth, so we can have an America which is both healthy and prosperous.

1. We need an integrated health-economy policy goal so the country can see the public health and economic teams working synergistically. They can help solve each other’s challenges and to work through the values and judgement questions which are inevitable. The mission statement should be something like: “The Trump administration is committed to growing the American economy and putting Americans back to work within a framework of saving lives through the aggressive campaign to defeat the coronavirus.”

2. Our economic goal should be a V-shaped decline and recovery. This would enable America to – as rapidly as possible – get back on the track of historically low unemployment and jobs for everyone. Part of the public health equation must be stemming the loss of lives and the health costs that will come from continued unemployment in suicide, alcoholism, drug addiction, depression and other human responses to economic despair. The best example of a pure V-shaped decline and recovery is James Grant’s The Forgotten Depression: 1921: The Crash That Cured Itself.

3. The Vice President Mike Pence-led Coronavirus Task Force has been doing an amazing job of coordinating a national, and in some cases international, response to a suddenly emerging pandemic. Thousands of lives have already been saved because of the aggressiveness and competence of the task force team. Drs. Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci have become household celebrities as a result of their obvious competence and professionalism. The daily briefings have restored a great deal of confidence that the crisis is being handled competently. A similar Task Force for Economic Recovery, Job Creation, and Prosperity needs to be established. In coordination with the public health-focused task force, this new team should focus every day on reopening the economy, solving bottlenecks, and developing policies for more rapid, dynamic economic growth.

4. A special focus should be built around keeping senior citizens as safe as possible. Home health companies, which already have trained people provide in-home testing, should be utilized so fewer seniors have to go to the doctor’s office. We should develop an intense program of teaching seniors to use telemedicine – both for convenience and to minimize visiting potentially dangerous offices. Working with companies such as Amazon, Walmart, Peapod, and others, home delivery for drugs and groceries should be optimized, so seniors can minimize time in settings where they might encounter the virus.

5. One key to reopening the economy is to switch the public health-focused task force from focusing on what we can’t do in the economy to exploring what we could do. For example, using an inkblot strategy developed for defeating insurgencies, we could focus on reviving the economy of the least threatened states. There are eight states with fewer than 100 people infected. As of this writing, the least infected states are South Dakota (41), North Dakota (52), West Virginia (52) Wyoming (53), Alaska (59), Nebraska (68), Montana (71), and Hawaii (95). In those states, there must be entire counties with zero infections. Surely, a strategy could be developed to focus on the infected and liberate the healthy in those eight states – while keeping people safe from risk of infection. New York, with more than 25,000 cases must be severely constrained for the moment, but most of America is not New York and doesn’t have to be. In fact, many rural counties (even in New York) could perhaps be treated with more openness because they resemble South Dakota more than New York City or Westchester.

6. A system of routine checks must be developed that will apply virtually everywhere — and for as long as the virus threatens us. I was in South Korea during the first phase of the virus and, already, every hotel had someone at the door who checked the temperature (with a skin responsive thermometer) of every person who walked in. High temperature meant no admission. Thermometers may ultimately be as important as tests. Early openings for restaurants in low-threat areas could come with a protocol that only a limited number of tables could be filled at a time to ensure physical distancing. It could also require that staff and customers had to have their temperatures checked. Thinking through behavioral protocols that allow the public health experts to say “yes” is a key part of accelerating economic recovery.

7. Big companies may be able to work with the public health community to develop healthy protocols for their employees and customers. If Walmart, Target, Costco, McDonald’s, CVS, the major grocery stores, etc., all developed sound protocols for checking on the virus and for keeping people safe, a significant part of the American economy could begin to reopen almost everywhere except in the most infected areas. These processes should be quickly documented and shared, so smaller businesses that don’t have the resources to develop such practices can replicate them.

8. More emphasis needs to be put on therapies. We may eventually get to a vaccine (and like the flu, it might have to be redeveloped annually as the coronavirus mutates). However, in the short run, we can save a lot of lives by simply adapting existing therapies already approved for human use and developing new therapies as they are discovered. Two keys will be finding some method of validating when off-label use of existing therapies works and then getting the knowledge of those therapies to the physician community as rapidly and thoroughly as possible. If we could reduce the threat of the disease to manageable illness rather than death, we would have a lot more latitude to open the economy and get back to job creation. Therapies may be able to be applied in the next 30 to 60 days with dramatic improvements in survivability.

9. Americans are going to have to learn a lot to live in this new world. The coronavirus may disappear for the summer but come back in the fall. As Americans go back to work, they need to know a lot more about staying safe and about doing their jobs in a biologically more dangerous world. As the new therapies, testing and other capabilities come on-line, Americans need to learn about them. The faster we learn, the healthier we will be and the more we can open up the economy. One example of the need for learning is the use of telemedicine by senior citizens. A combination of public service announcements by trusted celebrities (for the Medicare population Tom Selleck or Gary Sinise would be good examples) and on-line learning need to be used. For those Americans who must stay home, a lot of learning can take place on-line. This can improve their lives at home, prepare them for working from home (the new economy will almost certainly have more distance work than the old economy), and help them use best practices as we learn more about the coronavirus. We are watching an enormous experiment in distance learning with all the schools closed. This system must be built upon as people need knowledge about new testing systems, therapies, rules for reopening the economy, and lessons about staying safe as you go back to work. The Pence team should establish an electronic learning working group with advisers like Sebastian Thrun of Udacity and Brandon Busteed of Kaplan.

10. Unlocking a locked up and closed-down economy is a lot more complicated than simply increasing the incentives in an otherwise healthy, functioning economy. It is probably worthwhile to convene experts on the World War I and World War II demobilization efforts to learn what lessons there are to re-launch a domestic economy after a period of massive government intervention. The objective, legitimate requirements of public health are going to make renewing the American economy a lot more complicated than anything we have done in the last 75 years. It might be worth studying those who had to disentangle the government and private sector and relaunch a robust economy to see if those lessons learned can be applied to our project of a healthy America with a healthy economy.
This essay is just a start. More ideas must be developed. Keeping Americans healthy and prosperous right now is our society’s most critical challenge.

Your Wife & Daughter May Become Eligible for the Draft

Denny Burk
by Denny Burk: I know that the nation’s interest has been transfixed by the coronavirus outbreak. Nevertheless, there is another item in the news that is worth our attention. Politico reports that a congressional commission has recommended that women be required to register for the draft. From the report:
A congressionally mandated commission is recommending women should be eligible for the draft, a move that comes five years after the Pentagon opened all combat roles to women.

“This is a necessary and fair step, making it possible to draw on the talent of a unified Nation in a time of national emergency,” the commissioners wrote in the 255-page report, obtained by POLITICO.
We haven’t had the draft for many years now. If it were ever reinstated, however, the commission calls for requiring women to serve, including in combat units. Yes, you read that right. Women could be drafted to serve in forward areas where they would be required to engage in combat—sometimes hand-to-hand combat—with male enemy soldiers.

I understand that we are living in times of tremendous social change. Americans have by and large cast aside the “quaint” view that men and women are different and that they ought to have roles and responsibilities that correspond to those differences. So for some people, I’m sure this news merely appears as the next stage of progress toward equality in our society. I would invite readers to consider a different perspective.

Are the fortunes of women in our country really enhanced by sending them to be ground up in the discipline of a combat unit and possibly to be killed or maimed in war? Is there a father in America who would under any circumstance risk having his daughter shot or killed in battle? Is there a single husband in this country who thinks it okay for his wife to risk being captured by our enemies? To risk becoming a prisoner of war? Is this the kind of people we want to be? Perhaps this is the kind of people we already are. I would sooner cut off my arm than allow such a thing with my own wife and daughters. Why would I ever support allowing someone else’s to do the same? Why would anyone?

In 2013, Ryan Smith wrote in The Wall Street Journal about the reality that awaits women in combat. Smith illustrates the problem by describing his own experience as a Marine during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Readers should be warned that what you are about to read is not for the faint of heart. But I think it is important for people to consider the reality of what is required of female infantrymen.Many articles have been written regarding the relative strength of women and the possible effects on morale of introducing women into all-male units. Less attention has been paid to another aspect: the absolutely dreadful conditions under which grunts live during war…

We rode into war crammed in the back of amphibious assault vehicles. They are designed to hold roughly 15 Marines snugly; due to maintenance issues, by the end of the invasion we had as many as 25 men stuffed into the back. Marines were forced to sit, in full gear, on each other’s laps and in contorted positions for hours on end. That was the least of our problems.

The invasion was a blitzkrieg. The goal was to move as fast to Baghdad as possible. The column would not stop for a lance corporal, sergeant, lieutenant, or even a company commander to go to the restroom. Sometimes we spent over 48 hours on the move without exiting the vehicles. We were forced to urinate in empty water bottles inches from our comrades.

Many Marines developed dysentery from the complete lack of sanitary conditions. When an uncontrollable urge hit a Marine, he would be forced to stand, as best he could, hold an MRE bag up to his rear, and defecate inches from his seated comrade’s face…

When we did reach Baghdad, we were in shambles. We had not showered in well over a month and our chemical protective suits were covered in a mixture of filth and dried blood. We were told to strip and place our suits in pits to be burned immediately. My unit stood there in a walled-in compound in Baghdad, naked, sores dotted all over our bodies, feet peeling, watching our suits burn. Later, they lined us up naked and washed us off with pressure washers.
What kind of a society puts its women on the front lines to risk what only men should be called on to risk? In countries ravaged by war, we consider it a tragedy when the battle comes to the backyards of women and children. Why would we thrust our own wives and daughters into that horror? My instinct is to keep them as far from it as possible. I know I’m not alone.

Perhaps some people believe that women ought to be able to volunteer for whatever job they are qualified to do. Nevertheless, it’s one thing for women to volunteer for combat service. It’s an entirely different matter for them to be drafted into it. I have a hard time believing that the women of America would want to be forced into such conditions. Any man that would countenance for one second his 18-year old daughter being pressed into this kind of service is abdicating his responsibility. Are we really going to be the kind of people who press our wives and daughters and mothers to fight in combat?

Men and women are different. The roles that each of them play during wartime ought to correspond to those differences. Polling says that a bare majority of Americans support women being eligible for the draft. Nevertheless, I have a feeling that more people feel the same way as I do than are willing to admit it. We live in an egalitarian age that can hardly tolerate the “quaint” notion that men and women are different. So very few are willing to speak up. But on this one, reality is staring us in the face.

The welfare of our mothers, wives and daughters is a test of our nation’s character. How willing are we as people to pretend that there are no differences between men and women? It is one thing to stand and applaud as Bruce “Caitlyn” Jenner receives an ESPY award. But how many people would be willing to continue the gender charade when their daughters are carried off to war?

Men and women have obvious physical differences. On average, women are weaker than men. And you don’t have to be a conservative to acknowledge this. It’s an empirical fact observable by anyone with eyes to see. This puts women at a distinct disadvantage in combat. To illustrate the point, consider this testimony from MMA fighter Tamika Brents who describes what it is like to face a man in the ring:I’ve never felt so overpowered in my life. I’ve fought a lot of women and have never felt the strength that I felt in a fight as I did that night… I can only say I’ve never felt so overpowered ever in my life, and I am an abnormally strong female.What happened to Tamika during her fight with this man?What Brents reportedly experienced at Fox’s hands was a concussion and a broken orbital bone that required staples. In other words, this woman was savaged by an opponent that was genetically advantaged with a thicker bone structure, longer reach, and denser musculature—or, put more simply, was a man. Fox was able to do this despite hormone treatments that made him more feminine in certain aspects.Can you imagine this experience played out countless times on distant battlefields in places where women are treated as little more than chattel? You need to imagine it because it may be your wife or daughter called up. Can you imagine sending your wife or daughter into the maw of deadly conflict with men who will do much worse to them than what happened to Tamika Brents in the MMA ring?

In a widely circulated letter from 2013, a female Marine named “Sentry” puts a fine point on it:This country and our military are NOT prepared to see what the enemy will do to female POWs… How is our 24/7 news cycle going to cover a captured, raped, mutilated woman? After the first one, how are the men in the military going to treat their female comrades?… Men in the military will move heaven and earth to protect women, never mind what it does to the mission. I present you with Exhibit A: Jessica Lynch. Male lives will be lost trying to protect their female comrades. And the people of the US are NOT, based on the Jessica Lynch episode, prepared to treat a female POW the same way they do a man.I know that many women have served admirably in our military. And there are certainly some who are physically exceptional and who may show some aptitude and interest in combat. But that’s just it. They tend to be exceptional. They are not the norm. And opening the draft to all women and potentially exposing all women to combat service is treating the exception as if it’s the norm. This is absurd and dangerous.

In addition to these issues, there is the very real possibility that physical requirements will have to be lowered in order to achieve the egalitarian ideal of women in combat units. If this happens (and many believe that it certainly will), our force will be weakened as a result. This too is absurd and dangerous.

At the end of the day, this issue is irreducibly moral. It goes to the heart of what kind of people we want to be. Are we really so beholden to the myths of gender theorists that we are willing to send our wives and daughters to be ground up by the rigors of a combat unit? I hope not.

It is certainly true that the lethality of combat units would be diminished by a move like this. Nevertheless, the main reason that we ought to oppose drafting women is that men and women are different. I know it’s not popular to say so, but that doesn’t make it any less true. This used to be obvious to everyone, but now it’s not. We would do well to remind ourselves what our grandparents and generations before them have always known.

Everyone in America ought to be scandalized by this news. But in a culture that is doing its level-best to obscure the differences between men and women, I’m wondering if it will even register on anyone’s conscience. To the extent that it doesn’t, we reveal just how far gone we are as a people.

We can only hope that Congress will not enact the recommendations of this commission. Time will tell. In the meantime, those of us who oppose this should make our voices heard.

One-Worlders Exploit Pandemic for Global Government

Cliff Kincaid
by Cliff Kincaid: Since "climate change" has not ushered in world government, the global health crisis will have to do. Hence, Greta Thunberg has announced it's "extremely likely" she has had coronavirus. She wasn't tested but quickly recovered, she says. Now, we are told, the world has to come together to create a global government financed by global taxes to deal with future pandemics.

"Gordon Brown calls for global government to tackle coronavirus" is the British Guardian headline over a story about the former Labor prime minister.

Globalist organizations led by the World Federalists are leading the charge. This year, however, they think the timing is on their side. Their "UN2020" movement is taking advantage of this year being the 75th anniversary of the United Nations. They believe the coronavirus can be exploited to get the nations of the world united behind the push for "another, better path for humanity."

Their "Global Call to Action" is unfolding mostly behind the scenes as the 75th anniversary of the United Nations "provides a much-needed opportunity for system-wide stocktaking, strengthening and renewal."

The World Federalists are sometimes regarded as small and without much influence, but the fact is that prominent personalities such as Walter Cronkite, the former CBS Evening News anchorman, were World Federalists. What's more, President Clinton and then-First Lady Hillary Clinton endorsed the group's activities during the time of the Clinton Administration.

Former Clinton official Strobe Talbott wrote a book, The Great Experiment, describing his own background in the pro-world government World Federalist Movement and naming a network of friends and close associates that included billionaire leftist hedge fund operator George Soros. The purpose of Talbott's book was to promote "global governance," a euphemism for world government, and was defined in the subtitle as "The Quest for a Global Nation."

With a pandemic sweeping the globe, they think this is their time to strike. A draft of their "People's Declaration" urges mechanisms such as an "Independent Commission on Global Governance" or a "United Nations Parliamentary Assembly" to be pushed by sympathetic governments.

"Far quicker than most of us could have imagined, a world-encompassing health crisis...has shaken the global order to its core," it says, adding that "no longer can we behave as if our current institutions are sufficient to secure our future.... To meet growing demands, a revitalized UN system would need a reliable source of funding."

Entitled "Humanity at a Crossroads: global governance at a time of global uncertainty," the document calls for consideration of proposals such as an international carbon tax, a fossil fuel consumption tax, a global tax on select mineral resource extraction or usage, a minimum international corporate tax, a financial transaction tax, and "other fiscal policy options."

But here's their bottom line, in their own words: "A global tax body to enforce these options should also be considered."

My 1997 book, Global Taxes for World Government, available for free at my America's Survival website (www.usasurvival.org), describes this movement.

On Capitol Hill, Senator Edward J. Markey, member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has been joined by other liberals in calling on President Donald Trump to introduce a United Nations Security Council resolution that declares pandemics a clear threat to international peace and security. As part of this resolution, they want to "Mandate that, in the event of a declared health emergency, all countries ensure on-the-ground access by World Health Organization (WHO) officials, as well as require that all countries transparently disseminate timely public health information to the WHO and to their own people."

Of course, the UN's World Health Organization has been widely accused of a pro-China bias and stalling on the declaration of a public health emergency surrounding coronavirus. Equally significant, its director general, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, was a member of the "High-Level Task Force for Innovative Financing for Health Systems," a group which recommended global taxes for the UN. They call them "solidarity levies" on airline tickets, tobacco, and currency transactions.

Tedros's praise for President Trump, saying he is doing a "great job" in fighting the pandemic, is a recognition of reality. Tedros understands that Trump's leadership has more than compensated for the lack of expertise from the WHO and the Centers for Disease Control. Tedros' job is on the line, as an online petition with 563,013 signatures as of Thursday afternoon is urging his resignation.

Whether that resignation comes or not, it will be important for President Trump to continue to resist calls for more globalism to fix the problems caused by globalism.
