Coronavirus Containment Has Failed

Within and without China, the coronavirus continues to rage on. A leaked report claims that actual covid-19 cases within China are 52x higher than the 78K reported by authorities.

Whether true or not, that estimate comports with the massive heavy-handed response the government has been pursuing there. Outside of China, more cases in more countries are being reported, especially in the EU.

Since yesterday, new cases have been reported in Sweden, Greece, France, Spain, Germany, and, of course, Italy. The virus appears as virulent as ever. Remember those photos of sick people collapsing on the street in China? Well, we’re now seeing the same thing in South Korea and Iran.

Infections continue to grow at a non-linear (i.e., exponential) rate. New cases & death are *doubling* worldwide every 4-5 days(!). Containment has failed. The coronavirus is spreading worldwide and it’s prudent to assume it’s headed near where you live at some point.

Use the time you still have now to prepare. Being well-stocked, well-trained and in a position to help others is your best defense at this point.

The Global Economy Was Sinking Long Before The Coronavirus Appeared

In order to determine if a geopolitical or economic threat is legitimate, I find it helps to watch how the mainstream propaganda narrative flows and changes. For example, for the past year as almost every fundamental indicator was flashing warning signs on the global economy the primary message in the mainstream was that central banks would never allow any major shocks to the financial system.  In other words, they would pour in cash at the slightest hint of trouble.  The conclusion for the investment world?  To “buy the F’ing dip!”   Why not?  You can’t lose.

Despite the fact that fraudulent stock markets artificially inflated by corporate stock buybacks are irrelevant to the health of our system, they still represent a psychological placebo for the masses.  Very few people care that it is a historic bubble; as long as everything is in the green they assume that all is well with the economy.

In the past, anyone who pointed out that this attitude was a recipe for disaster, anyone who argued that the system was breaking and the Everything Bubble was popping was called a “doom monger” or “chicken little”.

I’ve noticed very recently (in the last week) that this attack response is shifting in an interesting way. Where propaganda peddlers used to call us “paranoid”, now they argue that “our prepping or precious metals stacking won’t save us…”  People are “coming to take our supplies…” they say. That’s quite a 180 degree flip flop. As preppers and alternative economists are proven more and more right everyday, the narrative has changed from telling us we’re wrong, to telling us we will be sorry for being right.

Well, I’m not sorry for being right and neither should any other liberty analyst or preparedness advocate. I believe the information we have provided to millions of people has encouraged them to remain vigilant and ready for crisis, and hopefully this will keep them alive in the future.  The so-called “skeptics” seem to be determined to convince people to do absolutely nothing; to remain blind to any data that does not fit the recovery narrative and to have no backup plan in the event that something goes wrong. Why all the hostility towards the idea of simply being prepared?

Who benefits the most if you and the majority of people have no contingency plan? Who has something to gain by trying to convince you to ignore the obvious?

Whatever happens in the coming months, never forget that the economic and geopolitical situation has been dire for years. The coronavirus, while a legitimate threat that must be taken seriously, is also highly beneficial to a select group of elites who now have perfect cover to move forward with an economic collapse that they have been planning for some time.

Tucker: Global leaders said coronavirus was under control

Well This Is Interesting

One thing does make our eyebrows raise a little is the CDC official that raised what is somewhat unprecedented alerts yesterday has an interesting family linkage.

Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the CDC Director of the Center for the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, warned ominously that:

“As more and more countries experience community spread, successful containment at our borders becomes harder and harder. It’s not a question of if this will happen but when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illnesses.

Disruption to everyday life might be severe…

…We are asking the American public to prepare for the expectation that this might be bad.”

In addition, Messonnier warned that it may soon become necessary for schools and businesses to greatly restrict person to person contact…

The CDC outlined what schools and businesses will likely need to do if the COVID-19 virus becomes an epidemic outbreak in the U.S. Schools should consider dividing students into smaller groups or close and use “internet-based tele-schooling,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters on a conference call.

“For adults, businesses can replace in-person meetings with video or telephone conferences and increase teleworking options,” Messonnier said.

Can you ever recall a top CDC official ever making statements this ominous?

Well, it turns out Dr. Nancy Messonnier is the sister of the former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Could she be part of the resistance?

Remember, it was reported that CDC employees cried when Trump was elected.

Solid Joys 2/26

When God Becomes 100% for Us
By John Piper

. . . among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. (Ephesians 2:3)

All of God’s wrath, all of the condemnation we deserve, was poured out on Jesus. All of God’s demands for perfect righteousness were fulfilled by Christ. The moment we see (by grace!) this Treasure, and receive him in this way, his death counts as our death and his condemnation as our condemnation and his righteousness as our righteousness, and God becomes 100% irrevocably for us forever in that instant.

The question this leaves unanswered is, “Doesn’t the Bible teach that in eternity God set his favor on us in election?”

In other words, thoughtful people ask, “Did God only become 100% for us in the moment of faith and union with Christ and justification? Did he not become 100% for us in the act of election before the foundation of the world?” Paul says in Ephesians 1:4–5, “[God] chose us in [Jesus] before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ.”

Is God then not 100% for the elect from eternity? The answer hangs on the meaning of “100%.” 

With the term “100%” I am trying to preserve a biblical truth found in several passages of Scripture. For example, in Ephesians 2:3, Paul says that Christians were “children of wrath” before they were made alive in Christ Jesus: “We all once lived [among the sons of disobedience] in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.”

Paul is saying that, before our new birth — before we were made alive together with Christ — God’s wrath was on us. The elect were under wrath. This changed when God made us alive in Christ Jesus and awakened us to see the truth and beauty of Christ so that we received him as the one who died for us and as the one whose righteousness is counted as ours because of our union with Jesus. Before this happened to us, we were under God’s wrath. Then, because of faith in Christ and union with him, all God’s wrath was removed and he then became, in that sense, 100% for us.

Therefore, exult in the truth that God will keep you. He will get you to the end because in Christ he is 100% for you. And therefore, getting to the end does not make God to be 100% for you. It is the effect of the fact that he is already 100% for you.

I Expected No Less From Lynda Bennett

A pair of "official conservative ballots" sit on a table at the Haywood County Republican Party Headquarters in Waynesville on Feb. 14.

I have been trying to limit my articles concerning the Lynda Bennett House of Representatives campaign for several reasons. Primarily, I regret the time spent trying to expose the true character of Lynda Bennett. While this country is facing a pandemic which will have consequences concerning our nation’s very health and economic future, we still need to ensure that the people in the 11 District are not misled by evil.

Although the following information is lengthy, I encourage the voters in WNC to read and understand that some people will do anything to gain power. We cannot drain the swamp in Washington, D.C. by electing new denizens to populate that sewer. I know what Lynda did to the Haywood County 912 group to gain power. We see what she is doing and whom she is buying to get elected. Now imagine what she will do if she is sent to “represent” us. Especially if she is censored for FEC violations to manipulate her election as soon as she is sworn in.

Lynda Bennett campaign under fire for sham endorsement

A Smoky Mountain News investigation into a mysterious handout distributed at polling places during early voting casts serious aspersions on the legitimacy of an endorsement of congressional candidate Lynda Bennett by a previously unknown, hastily formed political action committee with ties to one of her campaign consultants.

Financial disclosures made by Lynda Bennett’s campaign show five separate payments to Red Action Strategies in amounts ranging from $1,595 to $11,951 between Jan. 10 and Feb. 3. The purpose of the payments – totaling $35,470 – is listed as online/social media services, and a separate payment in the amount of $5,000 was made to Bowman personally on Jan. 10, for videography.

The amount paid by the Bennett campaign to Bowman and his company totals $40,470, which is more than 75 percent of the $53,201 Bennett’s campaign has spent in the current election cycle.

“The way they set this committee up and her financial ties to the organization that set it up could be troubling if she’s the Republican nominee for Congress,” said Edwards. “She could end up facing FEC violations and Democrats would seize upon that in the General Election.”

If an endorsement made by a two-day-old “conservative ballot committee” of a candidate that had paid more than $40,000 to a consultant linked to the committee doesn’t sound fishy enough, a member of Bennett’s campaign also admitted involvement in distributing the handouts.

“I have lots of them,” said Jane Bilello when reached by phone on Feb. 14.

Bilello’s LinkedIn profile says that since 2009 she’s been the chair of the Asheville Tea PAC – the same organization that endorsed Bennett on Dec. 19, in an early morning phone conference that took place one hour after Rep. Mark Meadows told Politico he wouldn’t seek reelection and two hours before Bennett issued a press release announcing her candidacy. No other candidates had yet announced as of that time.

Bennett’s financial disclosures show Bilello’s been paid $3,200 by the Bennett campaign for her work as a “field representative.” She insisted “The Official Conservative Ballot Committee of NC” was legitimate.

Obama era DHS Whistleblower Philip Haney Showed NO SIGNS OF DEPRESSION OR SUICIDE!

The Obama era DHS whistleblower was found dead on the side of the freeway in California on Sunday. His death was originally reported as a suicide, but Carter says he was in great spirits, about to get married, and in the middle of writing a book he was passionate about. Police are still investigating, but it’s safe to say not many people commit suicide by shooting themselves in the chest on the side of the road.

The Coronavirus Pandemic Is A Crisis Now Obvious To All

As 19th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer claimed, “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.”

After weeks of denial, and attacks on voices like Peak Prosperity who dared question the “Everything is fine!” narrative, world governments and their mass media partners are finally admitting that the coronavirus threat is real and serious.

The pandemic continues to spread across the globe, interestingly, largely in the northern hemisphere at this time. This may suggest it could migrate south as fall/winter arrives there, possibly returning northwards when the seasons change again. Time will tell.

Meanwhile, the markets continue their sell-off as the economic damage from the impairment of Asian supply chains become more apparent. How much further can they fall? A LOT if the virus continues to rage on for months.

As this crisis is now becoming more obvious to all, remember that your best time to prepare is BEFORE the panicked herd stampedes.

Take the time you have now to keep plugging away at your preparations, so that you’re secure and positioned to help should covid-19 hit your community.

‘It’s Not If, It’s When’: CDC Warns Spread Of Coronavirus In U.S. Is Inevitable

Top U.S. public health officials said Tuesday that Americans should prepare for the spread of the coronavirus in communities across the country.

“It’s not so much a question of if this will happen any more, but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the head of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, said during a media briefing Tuesday.
