My Newswithviews Column, April 9 (‘Three Lessons that Must Be Learned’)

See the source image

The most tragic thing of all would be if America were to emerge from the coronavirus scare without having learned anything from it.

Three Lessons That Must Be Learned

This column only begins to scratch the surface. There are lots of lessons here, all of them important. Socialism’s like this all the time–do we really want socialism? How badly do we need the transgender movement? Do we want to be governed, and told the “news” by, persons who fervently admire Red China and want us to be more like them? Do we let liberals get away with blatantly trying to make political capital out of this mess?

And just how badly do we want to keep the ruling class we’ve got?


The Dems’ ‘Vote by Mail’ Scheme

Once upon a time the Romans held their regular elections with the army of their arch-enemy, Hannibal, camped out practically on their doorstep.

But not us. We have a coronavirus crisis. So Democrats are feverishly pushing a scheme to conduct our 2020 presidential elections with… mail-in ballots.

But according to a 2012 Pew Research Center study, there are at least 24 million “inaccurate and flawed voter registrations” (https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/04/07/exclusive-eric-eggers-democrat-plan-could-mail-ballots-to-24m-ineligible-voters/)–that is, people who do not exist and people who do exist but are not eligible to vote. In fact, we still have many counties with more registered “voters” than residents.

All of these phony voters will get mail-in ballots.

Can you say “Open wide the door to voter fraud”? If you can’t, you’d better learn how.

Democrats have proved by both their actions and their words that they will do just about anything, short of armed insurrection, to get back into power. And if they ever do–watch out.

That must never be permitted to happen. Never again.

Oh! But the Pew study’s eight years old!

And what has been done to clean up the voter rolls since then?

Not much.

Someday the virus crisis will be over. Let’s take care that America’s days as a free republic don’t pass into history with it.


It’s Starting to Scare Us

Which scares you more–the coronavirus itself, or the government’s response to it? In California they arrested a surfer who was alone on the water, hundreds of feet away from the nearest person, for violating “social distancing” commands. A government that does such things is not in its right mind. And some of us are growing fearful of people who obey crazy orders.

In 2002, eighteen years ago, Timothy Terrell penned this essay for Chalcedon:

https://chalcedon.edu/resources/articles/legitimacy-and-intimidation

In “Legitimacy and Intimidation,” Terrell wrote that “criminal behavior is a declaration of the autonomy of the individual and a rejection of God’s authority over human beings.” As submission to God’s laws goes out the window, a vicious circle comes in: the criminals get wilder and more violent, and the police rely more and more on massive force as a tool of intimidation. So you get the SWAT team smashing down your door at 4 a.m. because you jaywalked.

We worry that the curbs put on our freedom during the current crisis are going to prove too tasty to the government to give up when the crisis passes. “Hey! This is fun, ordering people’s behavior!” We also suspect that Democrats and their lapdogs in the nooze media are purposely trying to stretch out the crisis and scare us all silly in hopes of stampeding us into voting some Democrat psycho into the White House in November. Who honestly doubts they are capable of it?

Pray the Lord will exert His strength on us and bring us back to our senses, back to sanity: back to Him.

If we can learn important lessons from this crisis, we can come out of it a stronger country than we were going in.


‘Remove Them’ from Their Homes?

WHO | World Health Organization

What happened the last time we listened to a snake?

This is getting out of hand and starting to resemble a globalist scheme to control people.

The World Health Organization–do you trust them? really?–has run up the flagpole a new wrinkle in the fight against the Brought-to-you-by-communist-China coronavirus (https://www.breitbart.com/health/2020/04/07/coronavirus-who-official-floats-removing-the-infected-from-their-homes-to-stop-spread/). To quote the WHO’s executive director:

“Now we need to go and look in families to find those people who may be sick and remove them and isolate them in a safe and dignified manner…”

Is this where the Second Amendment comes in handy? Do we really want strangers coming into our homes and making off with members of our families? Any guarantee we’ll ever see them again? Not that you should implicitly trust any guarantee offered by any gaggle of United Nations bureaucrats.

I had my doubts about this story, but so far it does seem to be true.

To which I believe we are bound to reply: Not in America, sunshine.


Now the EU Wants You to Eat Bugs

Not just flies, but spiders, too!

They must expect the Chinese Wuhan Communist Death Virus to close up shop pretty soon, ’cause it sounds like they’re getting us ready for another round of OMGwe’reallgonnadiefromClimbitChange blah-blah…

And so they’re back to trying to get us peasants to eat bugs. They’re always trying to get us to eat bugs. This time it’s the EU and its Food Safety Authority, getting all set to approve creepy-crawlies as food fit for ordinary goofy human beings who can’t make it to Davos (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/04/06/eu-set-to-approve-insects-for-human-consumption/).

First I’ve got to see John Kerry or Theresa May chow down on a nice bowlful of squirming mealworms. See, I know they want us eating bugs just so they can laugh at us. Grubs and crickets and flies–that’s not for them! That’s for us. To help keep us in line. Who’s going to listen to a protest by someone who eats cucarachas?

You guys don’t know it, do you?–globalism’s dead. Your buddies the Chicoms killed it. All the tomato worm sandwiches in the world won’t bring it back. You global elites are mighty slow on the uptake!

So you can take your tent caterpillar flambe and stuff it.


Why We Despise ‘Reporters’

I don’t watch nooze. It’s bad enough, just reading it. But yesterday something piqued my curiosity and moved me to watch a few minutes of President Trump’s press briefing. Because I never watch these things, I had no idea what to expect (https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-hhs-inspector-general-is-biased-report-on-hospital-shortages-2020-4).

So I saw what I didn’t expect: some nonentity of a “reporter” trying to talk over the president of the United States. He just wouldn’t shut up.  Like, Dude, who the hell are you? What kind of feral fool just keeps yakking away while the president is speaking? Who do these journalistic nimrods think they are?

How do you interview anyone if you won’t stop talking yourself? Many years ago, I was at a governor’s briefing. Those of us who had questions asked them–and listened to the answers. That’s how we were able to report on what the governor said. We were, I think, a dozen reporters. We didn’t just keep talking.

But that was then, this is now, and our free and independent press’ only mission in life is to damage Donald Trump and try to boost Democrats back into power. They want to do this because they’re idiots: no one with any more sense than God gave an umbrella stand wants Democrats in charge of anything.

It’s not only lousy reporting, to try to drown out the person you’re supposed to be interviewing. It’s also bad manners. To show that much disrespect for the president is shameful.

I admit I had, and have, no respect at all for the previous president; I don’t even like to type his name. But I’m not all over the airwaves, live, showing my disrespect.

Let them write what they please. But if they can’t behave themselves in public, then they shouldn’t be allowed out in public.

 


What? Out of Food?

1000+ Supermarket Crowded Stock Images, Photos & Vectors ...

Actually, if our supermarket was ever this crowded, I wouldn’t go.

The first nooze I heard this morning was, now they don’t want you going to the supermarket.

What are we supposed to do for food? In Venezuela they ate the animals in the zoo. In North Korea they ate the bark off trees. Mr. Socialism, grinning ear to ear, asks, “Are we there yet? Huh? Huh?”

We have very limited food storage space. So not only is it impossible for us to hoard groceries; we also would be ashamed to hog more than our share. (Yeah, yeah, don’t say it–we’re obviously crazy.) So we buy what we need. That’s how we wind up running out of stuff.

Well, off we go in search of food and other supplies. This has been imposed on us by Red China and its Western suck-ups and U.N. catamites. Those responsible must be made to pay for it.

But first we need groceries.


Break Out the Crystal Ball

Hillary Clinton – nourishing obscurity

LEAD STORY, Oct. 19, 2021–

Chief Justice George Soros ruled yesterday that the “Thank You Tax,” payable to the Clinton Foundation, is “a perfectly constitutional response” to the second round of the coronavirus pandemic.

The other eight justices of the court were declared “non-essential” and sent home last week.

“It’s not like it’s going into my own pocket,” said President Hillary Clinton. “I only get just 5% of whatever the foundation takes in. That’s only 5% more than some deplorable out there!”

The “Thank You Tax” must be paid on any medicine, medical treatment, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, or testing having to do with the coronavirus, now called Trump’s Damned Virus (officially renamed such last week by Congress). It must also be paid along with any purchase of food, clothing, or household items made by Republicans–“since it’s their party’s fault that we got this virus,” said Speaker of the House Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Jailed–for Succeeding Where the Medical Establishment Failed

Dr. Punyamurtula S. Kishore, Preventive Medicine Physician in ...

Dr. Punyamurtala Kishore

Yesterday we posted a history video about Dr. Ignaz Semmelweiss, who was destroyed by the medical establishment of the mid-1800s for virtually stamping out fatal “child-bed fever” at hospitals under his authority.

Present-day America has its own Semmelweiss. Dr. Punyamurtala Kishore, in Massachusetts, developed a successful system for treating and curing opioid addiction. His reward for that? In 2011 the state shut down all 52 of his clinics and threw him in jail.

https://chalcedon.edu/magazine/dr-punyamurtula-kishore-in-the-eye-of-the-storm

Our managing editor at Chalcedon, Martin Selbrede, covered this bizarre story in deail from its beginning to the present. We have a link to Article No. 15 in the series because it provides links to the earlier articles, in order.

It’s standard practice to treat drug addiction by giving the patient other addictive drugs, like methadone. Dr. Kishore abandoned that, and replaced it with a treatment regime whose goal was not “managing” addiction, but curing it.

Like Semmelweiss, Dr. Kishore had dramatic results to prove his success.

Like Semmelweiss, the establishment–politicians, the “news” media, pharmaceutical companies, and high-ranking physicians–came down on him with everything they had. Semmelweiss died in a mental hospital. Dr. Kishore went to jail. At the age of 65, they had him cleaning streets–which impaired his health.

Unlike Semmelweiss, Dr. Kishore lived through his ordeal and, in the midst of persecution, found advocates and allies. So his struggle continues.

It’s all in Martin’s articles. It may be rather hard to believe–but believe it.


Today’s Visit to the Supermarket

If you’ve been following this blog, you know I have a bad knee and it’s giving me fits. But things have to get done anyhow, bad knee or not. That includes grocery shopping.

I knew I’d have to lean on the shopping cart the whole time, and use it (as Re-Farmer suggested) like a walker. After some 30 minutes of it, my arms were sore and tired. But I don’t think my knee sustained any further damage.

Coming home and listening to the car radio, we heard a lot of kerfuffle about “the White House’s numbers” on projected deaths from the coronavirus. At no time did any of the nooze sources identify who in the White House was giving us these numbers. We kept asking “Who?” but never got an answer. It was as if the building itself were pontificating about the disease.

We got back just in time to see, in our local weakly noozepaper, that–hurrah!–our town’s library has hosted a Drag Queen Story Hour. Well, we wouldn’t want a trivial thing like a pandemic to interfere with that!

This, I think, is the worst thing that has ever happened to our country’s culture so far. That any parents should bring their children to one of these abominations is inexplicable.

O Lord our God! For Jesus’ sake, please remember that these things are done against our will, without our consent, and over our objections. Amen.
