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.

POLL: Was Malaysia Flight 370 taken by a WORMHOLE?

NurPhoto / Contributor | Getty Images

It's hard to know what's real and what's fake anymore.

With the insanity that seems to grow every day, it is becoming more and more difficult to tell what's true and what's not, what to believe, and what to reject. Anything seems possible.

That's why Glenn had Ashton Forbes on his show, to explore the fringe what most people would consider impossible. Forbes brought Glenn a fascinating but far-out theory that explains the decade-old disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 along with riveting footage that supposedly corroborates his story. Like something out of a sci-fi novel, Forbes made the startling claim that Flight 370 was TELEPORTED via a U.S. military-made wormhole! As crazy as that sounds, the video footage along with Forbes' scientific research made an interesting, if not compelling case.

But what do you think? Do you believe that the U.S. Government can create wormholes? Did they use one to abduct Flight 370? Is the government hiding futuristic tech from the rest of the world? Let us know in the poll below:

Does the military have the capability to create wormholes?

Is the U.S. military somehow responsible for what happened to Malaysia Flight 370?

Is the military in possession of technology beyond what we believe to be possible?

Do you think American military tech is ahead of the other superpowers?

Do you think there would be negative consequences if secret government technology was leaked? 

School today is not like it used to be...

Glenn recently covered how our medical schools have been taken over by gender-affirming, anti-racist, woke garbage, and unfortunately, it doesn't stop there. Education at all levels has been compromised by progressive ideology. From high-level university academics to grade school, American children are constantly being bombarded by the latest backward propaganda from the left. Luckily, in the age of Zoom classes and smartphones, it's harder for teachers to get away their agenda in secret. Here are five videos that show just how corrupt schools really are:

Woke teacher vandalizes pro-life display

Professor Shellyne Rodriguez, an art professor at Hunter College in New York, was caught on camera having a violent argument with a group of pro-life students who were tabling on campus. Rodriguez was later fired from her position after threatening a reporter from the New York Post, who was looking into this incident, with a machete.

Woke professor argues with student after he called police heroes

An unnamed professor from Cypress College was captured having a heated discussion with a student over Zoom. The professor verbally attacked the student, who had given a presentation on "cancel culture" and his support of law enforcement. The university later confirmed that the professor was put on leave after the incident.

Professor goes on Anti-Trump rant 

Professor Olga Perez Stable Cox was filmed by a student going on an anti-Trump rant during her human-sexuality class at Orange Coast College. This rant included Professor Cox describing Trump's election as "an act of terrorism”. The student who filmed this outburst was suspended for an entire semester along with several other punishments, including a three-page apology essay to Professor Cox explaining his actions. Orange Coast College continues to defend Professor Cox, citing the student code of conduct.

Unhinged teacher caught on video going on left-wing political rant

Lehi High School teacher Leah Kinyon was filmed amid a wild, left-wing rant during a chemistry class. Kinyon made several politically charged remarks, which included encouraging students to get vaccinated and calling President Trump a "literal moron." Despite her claims that the school admins "don't give a crap" about her delusional ramblings, a statement from Lehi High School reveals that she "is no longer an employee of Alpine School District."

Far-left Berkeley law professor melts down when a Senator asks her if men can get pregnant

During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Berkeley Law Professor Khiara M. Bridges was asked by Missouri Senator Josh Hawley to clarify earlier statements involving "people with a capacity for pregnancy." The senator's line of questioning is met with a long-winded, frantic rant accusing the senator of being transphobic. When Sen. Hawley tries to clarify further, Professor Bridges makes the outrageous claim that such a line of questioning somehow leads to trans suicides.

Woke ideology trumps medicine in America's top 5 medical schools

Progressive ideology has infected our most prestigious medical schools and is seeping into our medical system.

As Glenn covered in his latest TV special, "diversity, equity and inclusion" (DEI), and leftist rhetoric have overtaken science and medicine as the focus of medical schools across the nation. The next generation of doctors and nurses is being force-fed DEI and "anti-racist" nonsense at the expense of slipping standards. This has led to a decline in people's trust in the medical industry and for good reason. Woke ideology has already been the driving force behind at least one medical malpractice case, and more are undoubtedly on the way.

All of this is being spearheaded by universities, which have integrated DEI practices into the fabric of their programs. Our top medical schools now require students and staff to participate in mandatory DEI and "anti-racist" classes and training and are adjusting the standards to reflect this new shift in focus. Here are 5 statements from the top American medical schools that show that medicine is no longer their primary focus:

“We openly acknowledge the role of structural forces of oppression as primary drivers of the disparate health outcomes. We believe that working to reverse the underrepresentation of historically excluded groups is critical in achieving equitable health outcomes. While this is an ongoing journey for our program, here are some of the tangible steps we have taken to achieve an inclusive culture”

Pulled from the Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, Justice, and Anti-Racism page:

"Courses are being revised to be more inclusive and informed by the key principle of race as a social construct and a social determinant of health. We are training faculty that Anti-Racism is not an add-on to a course. Anti-Racism is a pedagogy - a manner of teaching, designing courses, and measuring learning outcomes. We make sure that the classroom environment is inclusive by holding space for respectful conversation and ensuring that we address any “classroom ruptures”– a disorienting dilemma or situation when a bias or microaggression that may occur, providing real time opportunities for professional development, learning, and growth. Racist actions and remarks are never tolerated at Columbia University and will be dealt with following established protocols."

Editor's note: This article was originally published on TheBlaze.com.

Critical theory once stood out as the absurd progressive notion that it is. Now, its maxims are becoming an integral part of ordinary political discourse. The more you repeat a lie, the more you will believe it, and this is the very dangerous place in which we find ourselves today.

Take this critical theory maxim as an example: If we desire justice, we must sometimes champion what may appear superficially as injustice. It's a necessary evil, if you will, the necessity of “controlled injustice.”

By using truth through fabrication and controlled injustice for justice, we’ll save the republic. We’ll be acting in a noble way.

This definition of justice is defined by the “oppressed,” not the “oppressor.” It is the greatest happiness for the greatest number. To achieve this justice, however, we need to endorse acts on occasion that, while seemingly unjust, serve a higher purpose. It will ensure the stability and the unity of our republic, and this may manifest in ways that seem contradictory to our values. But these are the necessary shadows to cast light on “true justice.”

And isn’t that what we are all after, anyway?

Here’s another critical theory maxim: Sometimes we find the truth through fabrication. Our pursuit of truth sometimes requires a strategic use of falsehoods. The truth is a construct that has been shaped and tailored to promote the well-being of the collective.

We sometimes need to accept and propagate lies designed by "the system” — not the old system, but the system that we’re now using to replace the old to get more justice through injustice and more truth through fabrication.

We’re engaging in a higher form of honesty. When we fabricate, it’s for the right reason. We are reaching up to the heavens fighting for a higher sort of honesty. To fortify the truth, we occasionally must weave a tapestry of lies. Each thread, essential for the greater picture, will ultimately define our understanding and ensure our unity under this infallible wisdom.

The election is coming up. Does this maxim sound familiar? Many think it is imperative that we secure our republic through election control to maintain our republic. Sometimes, we might need to take actions that by traditional standards might be questionable.

The act of securing elections requires cheating. It's not mere deception. It is a noble act of safeguarding our way of life. We're on the verge of losing this democracy, and without deception, we will lose it.

To ensure it doesn't fall into the hands of those we know will destroy it, we may have to make a few fabrications. We're fabricating stories to be able to control or secure the republic through our elections. By using truth through fabrication and controlled injustice for justice, we'll save the republic. Therefore, we'll be acting in a noble way. Stealing an election from those who wish to harm our society is truly an act of valor and an essential measure to protect our values and ensure the continuation of our just society.

If we desire justice, we must sometimes champion what may appear superficially as injustice.

I know it's a paradox of honor through dishonor. But in this context, by embracing the dishonor, we achieve the highest form of honor, ensuring the stability and the continuation of our great republic.

Let this be heard, far and wide, as a great call to patriotic action. As we advance, let each of us, citizens of this great and honorable republic, consider these principles. Not as abstract or paradoxical but as practical guides to daily life. Embrace the necessity of controlled injustice, the utility of lies, the duty to secure our electoral process, and the honor and apparent dishonor. These are not merely strategies for survival. They are prerequisites for our prosperity.

We all have to remember that justice is what our leaders define, that truth is what our party tells us. Our republic stands strong on the values of injustice for justice, honor through dishonor, and the fabrication of truths. To deviate from this path is to jeopardize the very fabric of our society. Strength through unity; unity through strength.

We've heard this nonsense for so long. But now, this nonsense is becoming an instituted reality, and we are entering perilous times. Don't be fooled by the narratives you will hear during the march to November. Never let someone convince you that the ends justify the means, that a little bit of injustice is needed to achieve a broader, collective vision of justice, that truth sometimes requires fabricated lies and narratives. If we do, justice will cease to be justice, truth will cease to be truth, and our republic will be lost.
