The silver lining in the Wuhan Virus

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 3/13/2020 5:07:52 AM

The Wuhan Virus is causing major disruptions in the U.S., from the stock market to the economy to social gatherings of all sorts. The virus itself is still not nearly up to the disease standards of the common flu or swine flu, even though the media hype of it has been off the charts. But that's not my point here. Rather, I see three upshots to this Wuhan epidemic in the U.S. There are probably more, but these three stand out in my mind. 1. Businesses now see that their precious supply chains and just-in-time inventory models are laden with risk.

Agree, OP. Excellent points. PDJT CONTINUES to surprise and confound the Dems and Europeans (which Peter points out are the same). And he CONTINUES to put America first and stay ahead of them in his thinking, planning, and executable actions. Well done, Mr President!

I grew up during WW II and remember how we were limited to consuming only American made products. There were no. Imports as no cargo ships were sailing with no military goods. I am amazed at how stupid our country is to have allowed us to rely on foreign made goods.

Indeed, this virus scare, whether you believe it was a manufactured crisis or otherwise, has exposed serious weaknesses in our supply chain. Skurkiss makes a great point that our supply chain is over-dependent on China. Especially for critical items such as pharmaceuticals and high-teck parts. The part of the crisis that is not the silver lining is how the virus to the Wuhan bioweapons lab and how it was release to the outside. Purely accidental due to sloppy safety procedure or was it a terror operation? And what was Canada's role in shipping the corona virus samples to the Wuhan lab. In 2018, the Canadian msm reported that two Chinese nationals working at Canada's National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg had arranged the unauthorized shipment of the samples to China and then were promptly fired then never heard from again. I'm most interested to understand if the corona virus that was delivered from Canada to the Wuhan lab is the same virus that "escaped" the Wuhan lab last December. And what about the videos that were taken by Chinese citizens of Chinese decontamination crews power-washing the streets, people, and buildings near the Wuhan lab and the videos were dated December 2019? I see that these videos were since scrubbed from the internet.

"Just in time" supply chains and the whole philosophy behind them work well....until there is a Black Swan event like this one. We have (or used to have, I'm not sure anymore) a Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Yet for the past 20 years (Bush and Obama) we let whole industries leave the US for China. We don't even have the machinery anymore as they were shipped there too! Time to take some of the money in the COVID-19 bill the dems want to use for their pet pork projects and use it to incentivize return of Made in America, at least for our critical pharmaceuticals.

I like the author’s use of “the Wuhan Virus”. Hang that albatross around China’s neck where it belongs. Also, I must confess that I started the toilet paper panic. I bought a big package of the paper and when I put it up on the supplies shelf I discovered another full package of the stuff. Then I realized it was paper kitchen towels that We were nearly out of. I told my wife about my error, she told the neighbors and our adult children, who told their friends, and the ripples spread out from North Dakota resulting in panic when people presumed that if North Dakotans were stocking up big-time on toilet paper there must be a shortage. I am truly sorry for causing this and the resulting stock market slide.

I just don't think people get what is going on here. Matthew 10:32 Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven. I think the media and liberals have had so much influence that we (especially Christians) forget that God is bigger than all of this. If I have been shown anything about this hysteria is that people invest too much in what the media thinks. I also think people have been shown how they have cut corners on cleaning and taking care of their health. It is amazing how God shows us to live. . .

All three are essential because they save lives. Point number one has layers of serious stuff to ponder. I'm really hopeful the pharmaceutical industry can come back home. And I read a really entertaining and thoughtful piece in Church Militant, entitled, "Pope Gregory to Pope Francis: What to Do When a Plague Hits Rome", March 10, 2020, A real history lesson. The author becomes Pope Gregory's ghostwriter and writes of the time Gregory and other prelates saw plagues as indicators from God that it was time to repent and start praying and fasting, and when they did, the plagues would end. And I know there may have been churches, when still open, that could be occupied by only an old woman saying her beads and a stray cat or two, but I think Gregory, thru the author, is suggesting that Francis reopen the churches - night and day - and admonish the people to pray and fast - and they might be surprised at the outcome. Another positive could happen.

Wuhan did have a bioweapons lac worming on Coronavirus. In a prescient 1981 novel called “The Eyes of Darkness” Dean Koontz wrote: ‘In around 2020 a severe pneumonia-like illness will spread throughout the globe, attacking the lungs and the bronchial tubes and resisting all known treatments” ... “They call virus Wuhan-400 because Lt was developed at their RDNA labs outside os the city of Wuhan, and it was the four-hundredth viable strain of man-made microorganisms created at the research center. Wuhan-400 is a perfect weapon.” Coincidence? Probably not.

Good article but I take issue where the author states that even brain dead members of our political class will realize we can't be so dependent on China. Many members of that specific class (Joey and Diane Feinstein are two) are very likely on China's payroll and will take every opportunity to do China's bidding; they would deny that there is not even one "smidgen" of evidence that our being dependent on China is in any way a problem for us. Count on it.

p.s. 2 on #12 I cannot believe that Pope Francis is ambiguous about something so important again. I take it back; yes, I can. Just read on Breitbart that "Pope Francis Questions Drastic Measures After Closing All Churches". After reading the article, I surmised that The Pope had blamed the closing of ALL THE CHURCHES IN ITALY on: The Church, The Shepherds, The Holy Spirit, The Catholic Church in Italy, Diocese of Rome, Bishops Conference, Cardinal DeDonatis, and The Common Good, As usual, he takes no responsibility, but it makes no difference because all the churches in Italy are closed. Good job! Pope Bergoglio (I am one of his unfortunate flock.)

Regarding #11, 12, 16, 19: Every so often our loving Father must allow His wayward children to be chastised. However, rather than it being a punishment sent by an angry and vengeful God, it is always the just consequences of our actions, and for those who live in His Grace He has many consolations. Since Adam and Eve humanity has groaned and resisted against God's Plan, but Our Father uses our weaknesses to develop strengths by helping us to take on the challenges of physical life in a fallen world. All prayer is powerful whether the setting is in the home or in a church building. However, where a Protestant church is only different from a home in the aspect of the number of people it can hold; Our Lord Jesus Christ is physically present in every Catholic sanctuary. How often have you imagined what it would be like to have lived in Jesus' time, how would it have felt to be near Him? He anticipated this need He sheep would have after His Resurrection, and so He instituted a perpetual miracle. His Real Presence; His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity disguised as a simple piece of bread, our most common food. Jesus had a human body just like ours. If not, how could He say, "This is my body which will be given for you...this is my blood which will be shed for you."? It is precisely because the Son is fully human that He can give His Body as real food and His Blood as real drink. Jesus is also fully God, therefore He is able to make His Body and Blood available to us for all time. It is this distinction, praying in front of the Real Presence of God that makes prayer in a Catholic Church supercharged. Unfortunately, in our current times Catholic churches are locked between services for security reasons. However, I've never met a priest who wasn't happy to answer the rectory door to find someone wanting to make a visit to the Blessed Sacrament. "Behold, I make all things new."

my very last p.s. for #12 And, I thank you, Timber Queen, for a lovely and prayerful posting. I'm really not a crabby person. but sometimes you just get upset. I am happy to tell all who are concerned, that the Pope is reopening the churches in Rome. He realized in a time of crisis, that a visit before the Blessed Sacrament is the best place to be. And T.Q., I thank you again for a lovely reading. Take care.

#21 - Thank you for your very kind words, and the strong faith you have shared for many years. I'm just another soul on the journey home helping a fellow traveler who was getting a little too close to the edge. It is when the world is going crazy that we must remind ourselves and others to recognize that God is in control. Everything in His creation is working towards the full unification of all mankind with God, through Jesus Christ. To quote a man we all admire, "Its a complicated business, folks, a complicated business." In regards to your family member who reminded you "that you can repent and fast and pray, and do it all without trying to get into a locked church." I have an observation/question. We have Jesus Christ physically present in the tabernacle waiting for His faithful to stop in and visit, 24-7-365. Your relative is basically saying that if it was easy and the church was open, he might stop in for minute. But the slight inconvenience of knocking on the rectory door is just too much bother...to visit God. How would he feel if the church is locked and so is the rectory because the government took the priest away? How inconvenient would that be? Stay in prayer. Step back from the news and focus on how God is working in your life and what positive message and service you can give to others. The Fake News is meaningless, their words mere air. God is working in the affairs of man and President Trump is His champion for the American people and everyone across the globe. Be not afraid. Remember, we are to be ambassadors of Christ in a world that is not our home. May the peace of Christ be with you. AMDG

Coronavirusmania has overtaken America. Although there are no reported cases anywhere near some school districts, their doors have been closed thus forcing children to go to school until August. Others are considering remote learning assuming every student has a computer at home. Every night, the lead story on the news is about coronavirus, the latest statistics, the latest cancellation. I take it as a small blessing that Pearl Jam cancelled the spring leg of their tour saving me a trip to Baltimore (like Pearl Jam, hate Baltimore).

After the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington on Thursday announced the cancellation of upcoming Masses because of the coronavirus pandemic, many Catholics are scrambling for other options. Archbishop Wilton Gregory issued a dispensation from the Sunday obligation and recommended that people watch livestreamed Masses instead. But for many Catholics, simply watching Mass, on Sunday as well on St. Joseph’s and St. Patrick’s Day, the two major feasts next week, is an unsatisfying prospect. "I was shocked, but what are you going to do?” said Jacquelyn Basso, who lives part-time in D.C. “I’m so sad they’re not going to have Mass."

In 2016, many people (liberal ones anyway) asked what would happen if Trump wouldn’t concede the election to Hillary Clinton. In 2019, the same people asked what would happen if Trump doesn’t concede the 2020 election if he loses. Again, a silly question, because the transfer of power isn’t dependent on the concession of the candidate, regardless of whether he or she is an incumbent. After Louisiana postponed its primary on Friday, the big question of 2020 is whether the coronavirus outbreak might cause the 2020 election to be postponed. In fact, unhinged liberals on social media have been “predicting” this will happen for weeks.

First of all, Wuhan is a place and not a race, and to identify the coronavirus by its place of origin, like naming the Ebola Virus for a river in Zaire, is not racist or xenophobic — it's merely accurate. There is no racism or xenophobia in labeling an infection "Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever" or calling something "Lyme Disease" after a nearby town in Ohio. What calling this latest virus the Wuhan Virus is is a reminder of the multiple contagions China has spawned and released on an unsuspecting world.

Andrew Gillum, the former Mayor of Tallahassee, was the Democrat candidate for governor in 2016. Ultimately Ron DeSantis won by almost 34,000 votes. Florida may have dodged a bullet. On Friday, Candace Owens published on Twitter photos of a police report in which Gillum figured prominently with a sordid tale of drugs and, possibly, a gay sex orgy. According to the police report, in the early hours of February 13, Miami Beach police responded to a possible overdose in a hotel room. When they arrived, they discovered three men: Travis Dyson, the man who overdosed; Aldo Mejias, who made the 911 call; and Andrew Gillum.
