A better grip on the coronavirus situation

The official news about the coronavirus coming out of China is not pretty.  Less, than 77,000 total cases being reported as of this writing, and the increase fairly well flattening out.  The one thing we can be sure of is that the Chinese government lies even more than does our own.  I figured that they were downplaying the problem by a factor of maybe 10 or 12.  I am deeply grieved to report that I was a raging Pollyanna.   For my next act I will become a raging alcoholic Joe Btfsplk.

Time to hit those prayer bones, people.  Hard, till you crack the floorboards.

Fight for Freedom event

Mark your calendars for this important event.  There can be no doubt that the step-by-step crumbling of American civilization and culture is not a long series of random events, but that there is a methodology and a purpose to them. These purposes are inimical to our way of life and our form of government; these tactics can be understood, anticipated and countered. The Donks created a one party Socialist state in California, and they will keep it that way if we let them. Let’s not let them.

We owe it to our forebearers, ourselves and our descendants.

Education not indoctrination

Asian Industry B2B is hosting a FREE seminar on breaking education away from the converged, leftist educational model.  Once #1 State for education in the nation, California last year fell to #48, just ahead of Alabama and Mississippi.  California’s model of education is actually an indoctrination into the dead end, anti human Progressive ideology.  There are better models out there, some of which will be presented this Saturday at the USC Verdugo Hills Hospital.  Parents are strongly urged to attend, only you can wrest your children’s education from the hands of the lunatic Social Justice Warriors.

Corona virus survival manual

So far as we can tell at this point it doesn’t amount to much more than a nasty flu.  So you deal with the possibility of contracting it pretty much as you would with any other virus during flu season.  From an EMT somewhere in Los Angeles:

1) Its family includes SARS.
2) Treat it like FluBola and you’ll do fine.
3) It’s got about a 5% fatality rate (compared to 66-80% for Ebola virus).
4) It’s about ten times easier to catch than Ebola.
5) Wash your hands, and if it gets nearby, disposable gloves and a N95 mask should suffice.
6) If it becomes a transplanted epidemic, stay home if you can, and minimize contact if you can’t.
7) Wash your hands before you eat or drink, and don’t touch your face.
8) Wash your hands.

That concludes your coronavirus briefing.

Wait…you were shocked to hear the media hyping this like it’s the end of the world, while gaslighting the legitimate threat of Ebola, which makes the Black Death look about as deadly as granny’s casserole leftovers?
You mean to tell me there’s fakenews at ABCNNBCBS??
Would I lick a petrie dish with coronavirus?
Hell, no.
If someone was in the room with it, I’d leave, and wash my hands.
That’s about it.
The problem’s gonna come when we fail to quarantine potential carriers, and there are 50,000 cases here.
Then, it’s liable to become a pandemic.
It’s annoying, it might kill some people (for whom it’ll really suck), but it’s not as bad as drug-resistant TB, or flesh-eating bacteria.
But the hype is more about selling papers than the actual risk.
Rules to remember:
1) China lies abut everything to everyone, including themselves.
(If this turns out to be something far worse than just corona virus, it’ll be because the Chinese lied to everyone. Like they do.)
2) The CDC needs help finding their own @$$ with both hands and a map.
3) “We’re from the government and we’re here to help.” are still the most frightening words on the planet.
4) You take care of you.
5) Canned food lasts quite a while, and you have should that, water, other supplies, and an emergency cash stash for a minimum of between 3-6 months of living and expenses. Period.

I can do that, bet you can too.  Take care of yourself and we’ll laugh about it on the other side.

By their fruits you will know them

It has long been my contention that the Democratic Party is a wholly owned subsidiary of Communism International (ComIntern), Communism being Socialism’s meaner, more ruthless big brother.  I don’t know who’s running ComIntern since the Soviet Union’s collapse thirty years ago but I’m willing to bet that it is pretty much the same bunch as ran it from the KGB’s First Directorate back in the day.   No, indeed, putting lipstick and eye liner on the old Stalinist Bear and calling him Pooh didn’t alter the character of the beast.

Whether you call it Marxism, Communism, Socialism, Leftism or Progressivism, in Abraham’s famous line, its still the same old serpent.  Andrew Breitbart had them pegged, “a bunch of control freaks.”  Yes, that’s it in a nutshell, these people are about power and control coupled with Lucifer’s own vision of humanity made over into something inhuman and bestial, the better to efface the Image of God.

In Virginia, now that they’ve taken the Governor’s office and both houses of the legislature, they are going for the brass ring. 

Please join me in welcoming the great State of Virginia into the Glorious World of Next Tuesday.  Our hearts go out to you, but you brought it on yourselves.  This is not a criticism because here in the formerly Golden State we have done the same thing.

But we’re not going to let it stay that way.

Hours could seem like minutes under Trump

The Peple’s Cube has done it again, published the meme of the hour.

From the website:

A Trump era remake of the Benghazi story ’13 Hours’ has just finished filming in Baghdad. Titled ’13 Minutes,’ it chronicles the short period from when the U.S. Marines landed at our Baghdad embassy to when the Iran-backed militias ran away losing their sandals.

Starring John Krasinski and Apache helicopters as supporting cast members, the remake is admittedly much more enjoyable than the Obama-era original, with a bigly satisfying ending. It was finished under budget and ahead of schedule, with an instant premiere in every US household on January 1, 2020.

No YouTube videos were blamed in the making of this movie.

Over at Instapundit Glen Reynolds publishes an email he received from John Ring, science fiction author:

UPDATE: John Ringo emails:

People keep missing something important about the airstrikes that ‘killed 25 militants’.

The militants were collateral damage. The target was multiple ‘hidden’ missile magazines for rather expensive Iranian SCUDs threatening Israel.

The strike cost the Iranians a shit ton of hard currency. It also pointed out we know where they hide stuff and can take out the “threat” at leisure.

And trying to storm the (fortress) embassy in Iraq was the best they could do.

This is exactly how US military power should be used.  When bad people start attacking our people, our embassies or other assets overseas there is nothing like a wallop with a big stick to put the problem in perspective for them.  If Iran wants to escalate they are certainly free to do so, but they will do so keeping a close eye out for America’s counter punch.  Nor should these counter punches be proportional.  On the contrary, they should be disproportionate precisely to drive the message home to people who just can’t get it otherwise.

Soros: no more rule of law

NEW YORK CITY– Tiffany Harris allegedly assaulted three Orthodox Jewish women, hitting them in the face on Friday, and yelling “F–k you, Jews.”  She was arrested.

Despite the fact that she admitted the crime, had an open harassment and assault charge, as well as a criminal mischief conviction, she was let go without bail.

That’s thanks to New York City’s “bail reform” legislation that requires arraignment judges to set free suspects in non-sexual attacks that don’t cause physical injury — even in hate-crime assaults.

Ms. Harris’ release is part and parcel of a movement to redefine justice and the meaning of law.  Up to this point American’s have had a very high respect for the law as law and its enforcement are integral to the functioning of a Republic.  Republics are not ruled by the whim of a king or the passion of mobs, but by strict and evenhanded operations of law.  Absent enforcement law becomes a meaningless abstraction, its function as a guide to public and private behavior vanishes and the people are left to manage the ensuing chaos as best they are able.

Police and the courts then become not servants of the people but their oppressors.  Ordinary folk depend on the police to protect their security by at a minimum discouraging violence against them by threatening the violent with punishments.  When the hooligans realize that they will not be held accountable for their acts they prey on the ordinary citizen more boldly.  Police then become the tools of those who pay them to look the other way, and become themselves just another gang despoiling the common man or enforcers for powerful, moneyed special interest groups.

Nor is it a question of simply granting limitless clemency to law breakers, but a tool of oppression for changing the fabric of society according to the desires of interests pushing their agendas on the public.

AMES, Iowa (Washington Examiner) — An Iowa man was sentenced to serve 16 years behind bars after he tore down a rainbow flag symbolizing gay pride from the front of a church and burned it.

Adolfo Martinez, 30, was found guilty of a felony hate crime and third-degree harassment after he tore down the pride flag displayed in front of the United Church of Christ in Ames, Iowa. Martinez ripped down the flag and walked it over to Dangerous Curves Gentleman’s Club, where police say he was a regular.

Interestingly, tearing down and burning Old Glory is not a crime at all, rather a protected expression of free speech, but tearing down and burning a rainbow flag celebrating homosexuality is a hate crime and a felony.  The message is glaringly clear, thou shalt not disapprove of the gays – or else.  The same principle applies to so-called sanctuary cities where a certain class of privileged people, undocumented invaders, are above the law.  George Orwell summed it up nicely in his novel Animal Farm: “Some animals are more equal than others.”

At the same time that President Trump is appointing Constitutionalist judges to Federal courts all over the land George “Darth” Soros has embarked on program to undercut the rule of law by generously funding District Attorney races.  The Epoch Times carries the story (Note; The story is behind a pay wall, parts of it are reproduced beloow:

The president of an association representing nearly 1,000 deputy district attorneys (DA) in Los Angeles has raised concerns about an ongoing effort by special interest groups, predominately funded by liberal megadonor George Soros, to influence the outcome of local district attorney races.

Michele Hanisee, the president of the Deputy District Attorneys Association of Los Angeles County (ADDA), says these special interest groups are seeking to circumvent the entire democratic process by electing DA candidates who have vowed to not enforce categories of crime—many who are known as progressive prosecutors—in their effort to “radically reshape the criminal justice system.”

Hanisee says these groups, which are operating across the country, spend large amounts of money usually in the final months before a primary or general election to boost their preferred candidate. The groups are usually super political action committees (PACs) that take on some form of the moniker “Justice & Public Safety.”

“The concern with the philosophy of it is that by backing candidates to promise not to enforce the law, they can bypass the entire democratic system of legislation,” she added. “So instead of lobbying to change the law, they just buy an elected official into office who won’t uphold the law. And that’s not democracy.”

She said that traditionally, district attorneys are elected based on their job experience, experience as an administrator, experience in law enforcement, and their record in the community. But she said now elections are suddenly based on promises such as “not on how to enforce the law, but simply not to enforce the law,” she said.

Hanisee is currently watching the upcoming Los Angeles County DA race closely and is wary about challenger George Gascon, who is known for his progressive criminal reform agenda from his time as San Francisco’s District Attorney.

Gascon announced his bid in L.A. county in October challenging incumbent Jackie Lacey. He has promised a range of policies to remake the criminal justice system, like bail reform.

Hanisee, who expressed support for Lacey, has raised concerns about Gascon’s proposed policies, citing his San Francisco record.

Hanisee said she also thinks that many of the district attorneys who were voted in based on their progressive agendas are actually not progressive.

“They’re radicals who want to make radical changes at the cost of public safety,” she said. “What the public really needs and what they deserve [is] our candidates and elected official to make thoughtful, cautious, measured change in collaboration with all stakeholders, because that’s far more likely to be effective without endangering public safety.”

The Justice Department and some prosecutors have also warned about the risks of electing progressive prosecutors.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr reprehended the movement in a speech to the Grand Lodge Fraternal Order of Police in August, saying that these district attorneys “style themselves as ‘social justice’ reformers” and “spend their time undercutting the police, letting criminals off the hook, and refusing to enforce the law.”

Whitney Tymas, who is listed as the treasurer of many of Soros-funded PACs across the country, said in a statement to The Washington Post in June that “Justice & Public Safety supports candidates with the experience and commitment to make their communities safer and fairer.”

Tymas did not immediately respond to an emailed request for comment. Similarly, the law firm Perkins Coie, who is listed as the contact email for the Justice & Public Safety PAC in FEC filings, did not respond to an emailed request for comment.

If you ever wonder if you are one of the more equal ones, you aren’t.
