Covid19 Chinese coronavirus

I for one was glad when Donald Trump 'got' Covid-19

So, it's about 4 weeks since Donald Trump 'got' Covid-19 and recovered from it within 3-4 days. Actually, the official narrative is that he tested positive for Covid-19 (and there is no reason to disbelieve that). As for what he had and didn't have, I dare not speculate. In any case, when he tested positive I was quite happy about it.

Of course, many leftists were very happy about it too, and wished that Trump would succumb to it. I was happy for entirely other reasons and never was I worried that Trump would succumb to Covid-19, a virus , which if it exists, has probably killed nobody in the 1 year that it has been around (according to the official narrative). Certainly, it is difficult to claim that it has killed anyone since escaping from Wuhan, and at this point everybody should be questioning what exactly was going on in Wuhan, because if it was a virus then it is not the same one that left Chinese shores. Let-s not get side-tracked: Wuhan conspiracies will have to take a backseat for now...

Anyway, I was happy because I was convinced that Trump 'getting' Covid-19 (actually, only testing positive) would help us get out of this hoax. When Trump actually checked into the hospital though, I was concerned for a while, but not on account of Covid-19. What worried me was that it was a perfect opportunity to get rid of Trump, perhaps through an experimental medication which led to unexpected complications. The U.S., as anybody who has followed it over the past 15 years has see, is a deeply corrupt country, and I don't put it past the power brokers to get rid of a sitting president through medical malpractice.

As it turned, out he survived the whole thing, so perhaps the U.S. is not as corrupt as I thought it was, or perhaps the powerbrokers deem Trump useful or whatever else; it doesn't matter. I suppose it was a good thing that he was taken into hospital, because it made the show a bit grander. Furthemore, it helped drown out Bergoglio's Tutti Frutti encyclical, or Fratelli Tutti as he has called it, since much of the world was occupied with the circus of Donald Trump's Covid-19 hospitalisation, and what a circus it was! When he 'recovered' it seemed the leftists were even angrier with him for it.

It certainly helped his campaign, I thought: "Now he will never have to wear a mask again", I found myself thinking. That was indeed one big positive from this as, apart from his flight back to the White House and the funeral of the hideous Ginsburg, I have not seen him in a mask since, and really there is no reason for him to wear one since he has recovered from it and is basically immune. But then again, the Covid-19 handlers tell us that one can be re-infected with Covid-19, which in a sane world would be proof that the tests are fake, but this is no a sane world anymore - and hasn't been for a long time.

On the horrible Ginsburg woman: The leftists, of course, largely wished that Trump would die from Covid-19, which some of the non-leftists claimed was distasteful. I found this attitude by those on the 'right' hypocritical. How many non-leftists, after all, had not long desired the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg? I certainly did, and I am not ashamed to admit it. The difference, of course, is that those not on the left do not typically proclaim their death wish in public, something leftists seem to do with gay abandon, for reasons I am likely to never understand. Perhaps they are under the opinion that appearing hate-filled is a good thing, and in their circles it has to be, since they do seem to compete on who has the most narcissistic rage going. 

The most amazing thing watching these leftists gleefully mock Trump for 'catching' Covid-19  was the notion that somehow Covid-19 would be deadly to a man who has the best medical care available to him. It is as though the past 1 year of Covid-19, with millions of positives  and allegedly only something more than 1.2 million deaths meant nothing. Mind you, these 1.2 million deaths include motorcycle accidents and probably not a few bullets to the head, and these numbers have not made a dent into the expected number of deaths ordinarily! I'll not even get into the absurdity of them excoriating Trump for not wearing a mask, as if a cloth on your face can prevent you catching a virus! These people really do believe their own lies, one has to conclude, or they go all-in with the lies.

It is only 3 days to the 2020 election and I have no doubt that Trump testing positive for Covid-19 helped him. He can now speak from personal experience - which voters typically like -, and as he urged people after leaving hospital, he has shown that this 'disease' or 'illness', or whatever it is, should not "dominate your life". It is certainly a positive message, and one which I hope will resound in more people than that of the 'dark winter' promised by Biden and his cohorts.

Indeed, death can be a great reliever, as in the case of the odious Ginsburg. Many of us wish that death will relieve us of Bergoglio, and have been doing so for quite a while, which absent a miraculous conversion is the only way out of this nightmare of a pseudo-pontificate. In Trump's case, he did not meet death, fortunately, nor was he under any threat. It has certainly helped the case against medical martial law that the most high-profile person in the world  - who was in the alleged risk group, elderly and overweight - got it and 'recovered' quickly. The downside is that Trump has turned himself into an ad for the medicine he claims helped him recover, but...

Let us pray for Dr. Ron Paul - Possibly the only principled political figure left

On weekday early evenings I usually turn on the TV to watch the Ron Paul Liberty Report. The eminent Dr. Ron Paul has his daily  weekday show and from Monday to Thursday he normally hosts it with Daniel McAdams. On Fridays it is mainly about economics and I sometimes tune in only for the first few minutes beucase much of the time it's about the Federal Reserve. While critiquing the Federal Reserve is a worthwile endeavour, it's certainly nothing as informative as the normal weekday shows, so I usually skip most if not all of it.

Nonetheless, I do take note of when the show arrives as I have the YouTube channel subscribed.

Last Friday it didn't show up and I thought maybe they had skipped it. The videos are released somewhat irregularly, at varying times over a span of about 3 hours so sometimes they will come quite late. There had been some storm in Texas over the past week - with one of the episodes being audio only as opposed to being shot in-studio - so I thought that maybe they had skipped an episode on account of this.

Then not long after I saw a bulletin of sorts from FoxNews regarding Ron Paul. He had been admitted to the hospital. They did not say for what reason, but they did state that he was hopeful of making a full recovery.

For full disclosure I don't watch Fox News much. The only thing I watch regularly from them are clips from the Tucker Carlson show, because he is at least much more independent-minded than the rest. Laura Ingraham is okay much of the time but not as interesting. For the most part Fox News - at least with regards to international news - is fake news.

One could argue that MSNBC is fake news for the left, whereas CNN tries to be fake news for everyone - although it is obviously a leftist rag at this point whereas Fox News is fake news for the right. None of them are reliable news outlets but if I must watch some U.S. mainstream television channel then it is only Fox News I can stand as they don't saddle me with sodomy propaganda for the most part anyway. 

Anyway, the news saddened and grieved me. Not long afterwards I saw a headline on Gloria.tv titled "Video shows Ron Paul suffering what looks to be a stroke during a live interview." That was really alarming. He had suffered a stroke during the broadcast of the Friday version of the Ron Paul Liberty Report and there was a clip of it.  Fortunately, one of the comments had a picture of him at the hospitcal with a thumbs-up sign. I was slightly relieved but still concerened, naturally.

Over the weekend I browsed through the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity website to see if there was any information on his health. There was nothing.

Then Monday came and I wondered if Daniel McAdams would host the show on his own, or if they would skip it altogether. At about 8:30 P.M., I noticed that there was indeed a new episode of the Ron Paul Liberty Report but I didn't view it until some time after.

Finally I dared to click, and guess what: He was there introducing the show as usual! I have never been as relieved or joyful to see a familiar face on the television!

He even started with a little joke: After introducing Daniel McAdams he asked him "Good to see you Daniel, How are you doing?" to which he responded that he was doing a whole lot better than a few days ago and Ron Paul responded "You're recovering too!". Then he moved on, looking even younger than he did before, talking about how when doctros are left alone they usually do a good job, then moved forward to the topic which has  mostlyoccupied them since February, namely exposing the coronavirus hoax.

Without a doubt Ron Paul is the most principled and greatest figure in American politics over the last 3 generations, I can confidently claim. He is an independent man whose utterances are guided by principle and not self-interest and his main cause is that of liberty.

Naturally, with him not being a Catholic much less a traditionalist, there are points of disagreement. However, if a fellow traditionalist like Daniel McAdams can give up what would otherwise have been a lucrative career elsewhere to stand by his side and fight for liberty, we can rest assured that there is much good in Ron Raul's platform and I would urge anyone who hasn't tuned in to the Ron Paul Liberty Report to make its viewing a regular occurrence.

Indeed, Ron Paul and Daniel McAdams are one of very few people who have come out of this Covid-19 fiasco with any credit, and in their case, with much greater credit than they even had before. They have not only been proven entirely right acout the Covid-19 hoax, but even more importantly, they have always been opposed from the very beginning to the notion that the governemnt has any sort of right to interfere in people's lives and to commandeer them and their livelihoods due to a medical emergency, real or imagined.

We should indeed pray for Dr. Ron Paul, even if he has recovered fully. We should first and foremost pray for him that he may have convert to the one Holy and Apostolic Catholic Church, not withstanding the fact that more wisdom comes out of Ron Paul than from practically all our episcopate in its entirety.  We should also pray that he can continue his campaign for liberty, because in these darkened times we sorely need his towering voice and tireless fight for freedom - the very freedom we need to serve God.

For now though, suffice it to say that I am extremly joyful to see him back to full strength and I...

A quick and hopefully short take on the 5 strangest months in human history

It is certainly not for a lack of subject matter that I have not posted anything for nearly 5 months. Nor have I at any time fallen even remotely ill during this period. In fact, I have not even had the slightest of colds. If anything, there has been too much to write and it has been difficult to know where to begin.

Tomorrow marks the resumption of work for me, and I am one of the lucky ones as many around the world have lost their jobs. I hope mine stays in my possession for a while yet but things have been changing so rapidly that nothing is certain. The plan was to write a number of posts during my 2 weeks of vacation, especially since I was confined to my residence this time around, but that never happened. Ordinarily I try to avoid using the computer entirely during my holidays, and I am glad to report that I used mine less, though not nearly as rarely as I would have had I been allowed what has become my ordinary vacation spot.

I did take in some reading, which I try to do during vacation, but not as much as I would when away either. In other words, I have not done particularly much, but perhaps that is the entire point of a vacation - taking leave of one's normal routines and relaxing a bit. Anyway, here goes...Hopefully for once I can keep it short.

Because I subscribe to quite a lot of feeds and get my information from a multitude of sources, I am generally much-earlier informed of current trends than most, and oftentimes I'll track a story for a while before it makes big news. As for what came to be known as Covid-19, I became aware of it sometime in December and  began tracking it probably in the first week of January.

I thought it a serious thing, for a very simple reason: The Chinese communist party provably does not give a fig leaf about human life, but they were ready to shut one of their most productive cities off to stop the spread of a virus. "They can't have been doing it to save humans", I thought, so surely they must be facing something entirely devastating which if left unchecked can destroy their entire economy. "Whatever it is, it must be a whopper". By the way, I had never even heard of Wuhan before this debacle, not that I can remember anyway, which just shows how little we, or at least I, know about even large metropolises in China and other non-Western areas.

Now, on my website - which doesn't have as much original content as I would like, granted - you can find me finding positive points in virtually everything, and admiration without necessarily approval of even the most vile ideologies. You will not find, I am certain, any good word ever on communism, or even of its better-PR-handled ugly sister socialism. In other words, I cannot be assumed of having a deferential treatment to anything the communists do in any country, which is not to say that I support every anti-Chinese or anti-Cuban or even anti-Soviet propaganda piece, but that simply on sentiment, I dislike communism and socialism in their ends as well as their intentions.

So, the 'communist Chinese' - actually, more capitalists in business system but communist in social and political structures - clamped down hard on this thing. By the 17th of March, the date of my previous article, this 'disease' had spread to much of the world, which was in 'lockdown', as it came to be known, with the exception of Sweden and a few select others (I knew only of Sweden at the time, if memory serves me right). I am glad to report that Sweden did not shut down any more than it had on the 17th of March, for reasons which I cannot get into here, but to which I may well return to elucidate. 

Much of the rest of the world, did shut down however, and remarkably, remains shut down. That I had not expected. So then the question becomes: If more or less the whole world has shut down, it must mean we have been facing an extremely serious illness. Well, you would think so, wouldn't you, and ordinarily you would be correct. However, this period has been as far from ordinary as anything anyone has ever experienced save for the Incarnation.

I did write this in my last post:

Another consideration is worth pondering: If the faithful can go without Mass for a month, and manage to occupy themselves with other pursuits, what is to bring them back to Church after that month? 

Would that it would have been only a month! It lasted for months and is still going on, largely.  In fact, many of the re-openings of NOChurch have been more scandalous than the Mass cancellations and church closings were in the first place! NOChurch has been in full suicide-mode. This is not a post on NOChurch, however, which deserves its own separate treatment. Suffice to write that the good in this is that Bergoglio has been speaking less and travelling not at all, so we have been spared of many of his overhead bombing raids.

When last I wrote, I could still write something like the following

Covid-19 Chinese coronavirus, which has spread like wildfire in Italy and has by now shut down much of the country

without wanting to put scare quotes on the words 'coronavirus' or 'spread'. Now, I am inclined to do this every time I write these words, but I would rather avoid having to type them so you will simply have to add them in as you read. I would hesitatingly have written "has by now shut down much of the country" while referring to the virus (read 'virus') but now I would avoid that kind of language entirely and write something akin...
