Can we NOT make coronavirus about politics?!

Known coronavirus cases are over 97,000 cases worldwide, pushing up around 2,000 more every day. More than 3,000 people have died. The top four countries suffering the most are China, South Korea, Italy and Iran. I don't know what's going on in Italy, but they are REELING.

They've now locked down two towns, but the virus continues to spread. Just yesterday, Italy reported 769 new cases and 41 new deaths. Italy is now the country with the largest daily increases in both cases AND deaths in the world.

There's no way we're getting accurate information from China. Who knows how bad it's really getting over there? It's the same in Iran. Just from the numbers being reported, over thirty-five hundred cases and more than a hundred dead, it appears bad. But then again, we can't trust the Iranians to do anything but lie and give a rosy appearance.

This is a smuggled video from an Iranian hospital that the BBC obtained 6 days ago. At that time Iran was only reporting 77 total deaths. We examined the video and saw AT LEAST 50 body bags. And this is just at ONE HOSPITAL.

The virus in Iran isn't just affecting the poor or those that don't have access to healthcare. The Iranian elite are also getting it.

The virus in Iran isn't just affecting the poor or those that don't have access to healthcare. The Iranian elite are also getting it.

That includes their VICE PRESIDENT, and - get this - one out of every TEN members of the Iranian Parliament!

And even though there are countries like Iran and China that are deliberately hiding information and skewing the numbers, the nature of the virus already does that ORGANICALLY.

Some people react differently to the disease. You might have it RIGHT NOW, and not even know it. If you're in your 20'3, 30's or 40's it's very possible that the symptoms you might experience would be so mild that you'd pass it off as a bad cold or even severe allergies. You'd then go visit mom and dad or grandma and grandpa where THEIR fatality rate jumps to 9 to 16%!

And the worst part is that we haven't even been testing people of being suspected carriers unless they had either come from China recently OR had been in contact with known cases here in the U.S.

That didn't change until just TWO DAYS AGO when the CDC freed up testing.

We now have over 100 cases confirmed and 11 deaths here in the U.S.

California and Washington have both declared a state of emergency.

FEMA is now preparing for President Trump to do the same on a national scale, and this would follow the 2.5 billion dollars that Trump requested to respond to the outbreak.

As is typical from the Left these days, Democrats have used the spread of this virus to try and score political points.

Nancy Pelosi came right out of the gate, calling Trump's request for 2.5 billion to be "completely inadequate to the scale of the emergency".

Chuck Schumer then proposed 8 billion in funding and said:

"We've seen no sign that President Trump has any plan or urgency to deal with the spread of the coronavirus. We need real leadership, and we need it fast."

If 8 billion is what's needed then I'm fine with that, but is that REALLY the reason why they're doing this, or are they just trying to stick it to Trump?

My guess would be the latter, because none of them AT ALL responded this way back in 2009 when Obama was handling the Swine Flu pandemic.

In fact everyone in the country, regardless of how you voted, massively approved of how the Obama Administration was dealing with the crisis.

Well… let's take a look at how Obama handled the Swine Flu - which was apparently SO GREAT - with how Trump is handling coronavirus.

Here are the numbers TODAY:

The virus has been spreading for 3 months, with around 100 cases in the U.S. and 11 deaths. During that time, the Trump Administration has ordered the evacuations of Americans from foreign countries and cruise ships, put in place a quarantine system at military bases, and requested 2.5 billion dollars.

Keep in mind that all of this was done after 3 months of the virus spreading, 100 confirmed cases and 11 deaths.

Now let's go back to 2009. The first cases of Swine Flu began popping up in Mexico. Not across the ocean in China several thousand miles away… right here in our backyard!

By late March early April, cases were already starting to pop in both Texas and California. By April 27th, there were over 900 confirmed cases in Mexico. It took the Administration SIX MONTHS, but in October, Obama finally requested money to help fight the virus. At that time, Swine Flu had spread to 46 states, millions of cases, and one thousand deaths right here in the U.S. Obama only requested 1.5 billion dollars.

This is what he got high grades and praise for?

President Trump is now being attacked for providing MORE MONEY, with FEWER cases and deaths, in LESS states than what Obama faced in 2009. So how is a larger response to a comparatively smaller (current) threat… now considered "inadequate"?

President Trump is now being attacked for providing MORE MONEY, with FEWER cases and deaths, in LESS states than what Obama faced in 2009.

It's all politics, and that's what we have come to expect. Washington is going to keep playing their little games, but in the meantime… we've got to get prepared on our own.

If you want to get a potential snapshot for how things could get in the very near future, just look at Washington State.

Officials in King County, with a population over 2 million, are now telling their residents to stay at home.

Quote:

"Officials are advising community groups against holding large gatherings, defined as having more than 10 people, and are encouraging companies to allow remote work."

Is your business, that you either work for or own, capable of operating without anyone in the building? These are the questions you need to be prepared to answer, because if this virus continues to spread, this is the type of thing you're going to need to be prepared for.

I'm in the process of doing this RIGHT NOW. We're building electronic systems that enable my employees to operate from their homes, and I can broadcast from outside this studio. Some businesses can operate this way, but can YOURS? Have there been any meetings at your workplace to discuss a contingency in the event this all gets worse?

What about your family and home?

Two days ago, all Northshore schools in King County were closed for AT LEAST 14 days. It affects 33 schools and more than 23,000 kids. These are the kinds of contingencies we need to be prepared for. I highly doubt we'll ever be completely restricted from leaving our homes, but the responsible thing to do would be to limit travel as much as possible. Having two plus weeks of food and water for the entire family is a necessity.

Sound far fetched? That's probably exactly the same thing people in king County thought just a few days ago.

Yesterday, on the other side of the country, officials in New York ordered the quarantine of a thousand people, just on the fear that they MIGHT have come into contact with five people that have confirmed cases of the virus. Would you be prepared for your entire family to be stuck in the house - no trips to the grocery store, no work and no school - for two weeks?

There's also things you can do to try and keep your family from getting sick.

Mitigation and Prevention Factors

First, the things you can and should be doing to prevent the spread of the disease and avoid catching it yourself. According to the CDC, the same techniques you should be using to prevent the spread of Flu will work to prevent the spread of this virus:

  • Wash your hands. Thoroughly. Use warm water and lots of soap. Sing happy birthday twice in your head to ensure you washed long enough. Scrub vigorously, and be sure to wash at least 2 inches up each wrist.
  • Do NOT touch your face. The average person touches their face about 10 times per minute. Stop it.
  • If you catch yourself touching your face, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer immediately. A lot of it. Enough that it's dripping on the ground and people make fun of you. Get your wrists too.
  • Keep an alcohol-based hand sanitizer by every entrance to your home. The instant you walk inside, take off your shoes and use the hand-sanitizer. Then go to the bathroom and wash with soap and water.
  • When you use the toilet, close the toilet lid before flushing. COVID-19 has been confirmed to be transferable via Fecal-Oral transmission, and flushing the toilet causing droplet and aerosol spread leaving the toilet and around your bathroom. Lid closed first, then flush.
  • When you cough of sneeze, do so into a tissue and then immediately throw the tissue away. If you don't have a tissue, cough into the crook of your elbow or down your shirt. Either way, then wash your hands or use alcohol-based hand sanitizer. The goal is to prevent droplets from getting onto surfaces around you.
  • You should disinfect commonly touched surfaces (keyboards, doorknobs, refrigerator door handles, etc.) with Bleach, Lysol or Hydrogen Peroxide once per day.
  • If you own a business, encourage any employees who feel sick to work from home if possible, and be sure to honor requests for workers to stay home to care for sick family members as well.

If you get sick or think you are getting sick:

  • If you believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or if you develop any sort of old or flu-like symptoms, assume you're a carrier even though it's probably the flu. Minimize your social contact with others. Don't touch things. If you develop a fever or a dry cough, you should self-isolate and contact your healthcare professional.
  • Your first plan of treatment if you do get sick should be self-treatment at home. Again, the vast majority of people who contract COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover on their own. So treatment at home, similar to how you treat a case of the flu is your best course of action. Bed rest, plenty of fluids, and Tylenol or Ibuprofen for any fever.
  • As much as possible, isolate yourself from other family members and family pets. The WHO has confirmed that Dogs can be carriers of SARS-CoV-2, even though they don't get sick themselves.
  • Check your temperature several times per day. Any fever that persists for more than 1 day at 101 degrees or more should be reported to your doctor.
  • If you do determine you need to go to a Doctor or the Hospital for possible COVID-19 infection, call ahead of time and follow their instructions.
  • If you have a surgical mask or respirator, this is the time to wear one: when YOU think YOU may have it. Masks are about you preventing the spread to others, not about you not getting it.
  • Second, there are things each of us can and should be doing to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2 in our own bodies…to prevent the spread by having our own immune system kill it!
  • Sleep. Dozens of research studies prove the number one thing each of us can do to improve Immune System response is getting a full-night's sleep.
  • Eat red meat. Numerous studies demonstrate that consuming protein and Vitamin K are both vital to proper immune system response. Red Meat is the most complete concentrated protein on god's green earth, and is also the only natural source of Vitamin K that exists.
  • Relax. Stress is a primary factor in reducing human immune system response. Remain calm, vigilant and don't stress out.
  • Exercise. Many studies show that light and medium impact workouts increase immune system response.

Glenn is one of the most outspoken critics of the World Economic Forum and their vision to use crises to reconstruct the world order known as The Great Reset. The recent WEF summit in Davos confirms what Glenn has long warned about: globalist elites seek to upend our democracy, freedoms, and way of life to achieve their utopian climate goals. Here are 15 quotes from the 2023 Davos Summit, revealing their true intentions in their own words:

1. Saving the planet

When you hear the word, "Davos," the first thought that should pop into your mind is an elite group getting together to save the world from imminent climate disaster... at least they think of themselves that way. According to John Kerry:

I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet.

2. Private jets

What most people think when they hear the word "Davos" is a group of global elites flying in on private jets to talk about climate change... and yes, John Kerry does own a private jet, no matter how many times he denies it:

I fly commercial [...] Exclusively.

3. Global Collaboration Village

You always hear some weird, dystopian projects coming out of WEF, like "The Global Collaboration Village," a new metaverse community aimed at strengthening "global cooperation." It sounds like the next installment of Brave New World. According to Klaus Schwab, Founder and President of the WEF:

The Global Collaboration Village is the pioneering effort to use the metaverse for public good, to create global cooperation and to strengthen global cooperation in the metaverse or using metaverse technologies. For me, it's a dream coming true because the village allows the Forum to create a more larger and open platform where everybody can participate.

4. Climate revolution

However, the core theme throughout WEF summits is the immediate need for a climate revolution and how businesses are selfishly blocking the revolution because they want to make an extra buck. Here's how John Kerry summed up the sentiment:

How do we get there? The lesson I have learned in the last years [...] is money, money, money, money, money, money, money.

5. Do or die

This often turns into alarmist language, like having to choose between wealth and our planet's survival... Joyeeta Gupta, Professor of Environment and Development in the Global South at University of Amsterdam, said it eloquently:

If we do the minimum at this pivotable moment in our history, then we and our children – even if we are rich – will live in the danger zone. But if we – business people, governments, citizens, cities – take action today, then we and our children will have a future worth looking forward to.

6. Colossal risks

Potsdam Institute's director Johan Rockström, used similar language, claiming we are "taking colossal risks with the future of civilization":

We are taking colossal risks with the future of civilization on Earth, we are degrading the life support systems that we all depend on, we are actually pushing the entire Earth system to a point of destabilization, pushing Earth outside of the state that has supported civilization since we left the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

7. Rain bombs

"Colossal risks" like... rain bombs? We didn't make that up. Ask Al Gore:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs.

8. Survival comes down to this

How do we secure our survival? According to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, we have to "end our addiction to fossil fuels." This entails wiping out our entire energy industry, displacing millions of workers, and relying on global governments to usher in a new green industry. In his words:

So, we need to act together to close the emissions gap, and that means to phase out progressively coal and supercharge the renewable revolution, to end the addiction to fossil fuels, and to stop our self-defeating war on nature.

9. Complete transformation

It isn't hyperbolic to argue that the globalist climate goals will completely transform the world economy. Even EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen admitted:

The net-zero transformation is already causing huge industrial, economic and geopolitical shifts – by far the quickest and the most pronounced in our lifetime. It is changing the nature of work and the shape of our industry.

10. Scientific necessity

Of course, to bring about this "net-zero" transformation, we will have to override small, "political expediencies" like democracy to do what is "scientifically necessary." According to Zurich Insurance Group’s head of sustainability risk John Scott:

We’re living in a world right now where what’s scientifically necessary, and what is politically expedient don’t match.

11. Illegal hate speech

Doing away with "political expediencies" would also require the censorship of dissent, which would likely manifest in hate-speech laws. When asked by Brian Stelter how the discussion of disinformation relates to everything else happening today in Davos, European Commission VP Věra Jourová shared this prediction:

Illegal hate speech, which you will have soon also in the U.S. I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law.

12. Climate first

We will also have to forego national interests on the international stage. America won't be able to advocate for policies and interests that benefit Americans. Instead, we will sacrifice national interests for the sake of global climate interests. French economy minister Bruno Le Maire said:

The key question is not China First, US First, Europe First. The key question for all of us is Climate First.

13. The role of war

We can also expect globalist leaders to use crises, like the war in Ukraine, to expedite the "net-zero transformation." Chancellor of Germany Olaf Scholz said:

Ultimately, our goal of achieving carbon neutrality by 2045 has been given an additional boost by Putin’s war. Now we have even more cause to move away from fossil fuels.

14. Blame game

Globalist leaders will continue to blame ALL of the crises in our society on climate change to justify the "net-zero transition," from the energy shortage to "mistrust, selfishness [and] xenophobia." Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez said:

Our present struggle is not only against Putin or the energy shortage. It is also against fear, mistrust, selfishness, xenophobia, and environmental disaster. And its outcome will define life in the West and beyond for decades to come.

15. Sacrifice for the greater good

While we sacrifice our national interests for the sake of the "greater global good," we can expect our foreign enemies, like China, to benefit. Suisse Chairman Axel Lehmann said:

The growth forecasts now for China is 4.5%. I would not personally be surprised when that would be topped.

Conclusion

Glenn has been clear about the distinction between wanting to transition to green practices on your own accord and being forced into that transition by globalist, unelected elites. Leaders at Davos will continue to use alarmist language to justify their crackdown on democracy and freedom to bring about their leftist utopia. We have to cut through the alarmist language and in order to protect our freedoms.

Glenn has focused on exposing the dark side of the gender movements waging our culture war, and now, there's a new "trend" emerging as an offshoot to the transgender movement. A growing online community, particularly of men, who consider themselves "involuntarily celibate" or "incels" believe they can live a better life as a trans woman. Why? This community purports the world is rigged against men, particularly against traditionally "unattractive men." What's the solution? Stop being a man...

Incel or "involutarily celibate" communities have existed online in the dark corners of Reddit and Discord for years. The groups are marked by a hatred towards women, blaming them for rigging the world in their favor and denying them of sex. Several members of this growing community have been responsible for large acts of violence, most notably Alek Minassian, who killed 10 and injured 16 after driving a van into a busy area of Toronto in 2021.

However, the transgender movement has presented a new option for incel members: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em... or, in the Transmaxxers' case, "become them."

The online Transmaxxer's Manifesto says, “Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.” According to the manifesto, transitioning to female not only opens up a different pool of sexual partners, but moreover, you gain access to female-only spaces and are “able to extract resources from males.”

“Since females have the upper hand on the dating market, transitioning from male to female will usually improve your options when it comes to getting sex.”

Another member wrote, "If you do not currently feel like living as a female you might have to work on fixing that ... Identifying as male or being emotionally attached to a male body is bad for you if being male results in you living a bad life.”

This new movement is significant because it is in stark contrast to the mainstream narrative that "transgenderism" is an innate quality. Now, it can be an "option" people choose for social advantage. A moderator going by the alias “Vintologi” on the Transmaxxing Discord server, which boasts over 1,200 members, told The Daily Caller:

Transmaxxing is about transitioning for personal gain rather than focusing on things like "gender identity." ... What matters when it comes to medical transition is whether or not said transition would actually be beneficial, thus the extent to which gender identity is innate does not inform us much regarding when medical transition is appropriate.

One incel member on Reddit lamented that he can't Transmaxx to "have sex with white trans women" and to have "all the benefits of [being] female."

Transmaxxing sheds light on a concerning issue as an increasing number of people, particularly the youth, identify as "transgender." What used to be considered as a "finge case" is now being seen as a social advantage. Glenn recently sat down with de-transitioner Chloe Cole, and the amount of pressure she experienced to become a transgender man AS A TEENAGER was ASTOUNDING. She discussed the new community, friendships, and affirmation she gained when she started her transition journey, and she lost ALL of those social perks when she began de-transitioning. She exchanged affirmation for death-threats, friendships for stone-cold silence.

Transmaxxing is a very specific example of a larger movement that is deeply concerning. Not only is the thansgender ideology problematic on its own merits, but now, we are seeing a rise of a distinction of "social advantage" based on gender affiliation. This is deviating away from the original notion that transgenderism is an innate quality. Now, many consider it more "socially advantageous" to identify as transgender than with your biological gender.

At the same time President Biden's misplaced classified documents were sitting in his house, garage, and office at the Penn Biden Center, a whole lot of Chinese money was flowing around him. Is this just a coincidence, or did the Chinese get anything in return? Investigative journalist John Solomon joins to break down what was going on here ...

Here are 5 RIDICULOUS moments from the Davos summit

Glenn has been warning about the dangers of the World Economic Forum and The Great Reset, which is the WEF's goal to utilize the crises like the COVID pandemic to create a leftist Utopia. Now, these goals continue to take shape at the World Economic Forum summit in Davos. Here are five ridiculous moments from this year's summit that shed light on their ultimate vision Glenn has been warning about.

1. Ex-CNN host Brian Stelter hosts the WEF panel on "disinformation," calling for the criminalization of "hate speech" in the U.S.

The former host of Reliable Sources was fired from CNN in 2022 for raking in the network's worst ratings since 2019. CNN's CEO at the time, Chris Licht, accused Stelter of "drawing ire from conservatives" for misrepresenting the facts and propagating false narratives to demonize conservatives. Licht fired Stelter because he was a liability to CNN's attempt to "re-brand" itself as a "reliable" news source.

You would think the World Economic Forum could have found a more credible host for its "disinformation," than Brian Stelter, and it comes with little surprise Stelter's panel called for the continued censorship of conservatives.

Stelter asked his panel, "How does this discussion of disinformation relate to everything else happening today in Davos?"

Vice-President of the European Commission Vera Jourová answered "illegal hate speech" from right-wing extremists, and then called for the criminalization of hate speech in the U.S., asserting, "I think that we have a strong reason why we have this in the criminal law" within the EU.

As former Trump advisor Stephen Miller pointed out, Stelter's refusal to further challenge Jourová's call for censorship is indicative of his failed career as a journalist.

2. Al Gore warns of "rain bombs," "boiling oceans," and "xenophobia" as a result of climate change.

Gore's speech "speaks" for itself...

After asserting that we're creating an "open sewer" in the troposphere, Gore exclaimed:

That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers, and the rain bombs, and sucking the moisture out of the land, and creating the droughts, and melting the ice and raising the sea level, and causing these waves of climate refugees!
Watch the latest video at <a href="https://www.foxnews.com">foxnews.com</a>

Speaking of refugees, Gore blamed the mass migrations of people on... you guessed it... climate change! Of course this leads to "xenophobia" and "fascism," so if we hate "xenophobia" and "fascism," we need to stop climate change IMMEDIATELY. Plus the rain bombs...

Does this sound reminiscent of the "Man-Bear-Pig?"

3. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann urges for 1 million people to NOT eat meat—predicting a "meatless future."

It wouldn't be a World Economic Forum summit if bugs didn't take center stage. Siemens AG Chairman Jim Hagemann said he was inspired by his 24-year-old daughter to stop eating meat to fight climate change and urged one million people to stop eating meat to balance out jet emissions—like the jets his fellow attendees used to travel to the conference?

Here's what he said:

If a billion people stop eating meat, I tell you, it has a big impact. Not only does it have a big impact on the current food system, but it will also inspire innovation of food systems."

Of course, finding "alternative sources of protein" means... you guessed it... BUGS. The EU is already cutting down on cattle farms and promoting the building of insect farms to initiate this "protein transition."

4. John Kerry calls Davos attendees a "select group" with an "almost extraterrestrial" plan to save the planet.

Kerry's opening speech at Davos shows the type of elitism the attendees believe about themselves. They are the "special ones" who can gather at a Swiss resort town to discuss how to "save the planet" and the "little people" who are too ignorant to have a say in the matter. His words speak for themselves:

When you start to think about it, it's pretty extraordinary that we — select group of human beings because of whatever touched us at some point in our lives — are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet [...] I mean, it's so almost extraterrestrial to think about saving the planet [...] f you say that to most people, most people think you're just a crazy, tree-hugging, lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, or whatever, and there's no relationship. But really, that's where we are.

Well, not everyone was amused...

Businessman and conservative Tim Acheson called Kerry’s words, "Liberal delusions of grandeur." Jordan Peterson also tweeted, "Who are you going to sacrifice to save the planet, @JohnKerry -- and do you think and how will you ensure that they have any say in the matter?"

5. Davos attendees traveled on more than 1,000 private jets to the conference.

Greenspace, an environmentalist research group, estimates the total emissions used by Davos attendees on their private jets while traveling to the conference is equivalent to "about 350,000 average cars."

Greenspace also found that 53 percent of all private jet trips were short-haul flights of less than 470 nautical miles that "could have easily been train trips." This comes amid the EU's push to ban short-distance flights and opt for train travel instead, which many continue to point out.

Closing thoughts

What once sounded like conspiracy theories are now taking shape amongst the global elites at Davos. As Glenn continues to shed light on the dangers of the World Economic Forum, here's how YOU can fight back against their goals that threaten our freedoms and democracy.
