Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
“What in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin’ on here?” – Thursday evening, depraved Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom put his entire state population under a lockdown order:

Other than New York’s Andrew Cuomo, Newsom has been the nation’s most aggressive governor in using draconian tactics to control his population during this crisis. It’s important to note that his crisis was caused and greatly exacerbated by 10,000 Chinese citizens per day flowing into this country during December and January while Chinese communist government officials lied to the world about the extent of the outbreak in Wuhan province. The vast majority of those 10,000 Chinese citizens arrived on jumbo jets flying from China to destinations on the West and East coasts of America.
Luckly, President Donald Trump acted quickly to end that madness, issuing a travel ban by Chinese citizens to the U.S. on January 31, likely saving thousands of American lives in the process. It’s also important to note that Trump was roundly demonized by Democrat politicians like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders for taking that crucial action. There is no question that no Democrat president would have made this decision to save American lives.
I go through all of this today because of a new report by the San Francisco Chronicle that Chinese airlines are suddenly planning to resume flights from mainland China to California as soon as March 28, just six days from now.
From that piece:
While most U.S. airlines are cutting flights to historically low numbers because of the coronavirus pandemic, three mainland Chinese carriers plan to resume non-stop flights to San Francisco International Airport this month, a move SFO officials said “marks a hopeful change in direction.”
The resumption of flights is one of several early signs that the worst could be over in China, meaning the crisis will eventually come to an end here, too.
China Eastern will resume a daily non-stop flight this month between its hub in Shanghai and San Francisco using a Boeing 777-300ER jet. Flights are expected to start on Saturday, March 28.
Huh? Beg pardon? Say what????
What dark madness is this? We have a state whose population is in full lockdown thanks to a virus imported from China now planning to welcome new flights from China with open arms?
Later in the piece, we get information that is somewhat comforting:
Foreign nationals who have been in mainland China for the last 14 days are banned from entering the United States. U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents are allowed to return home, but must quarantine for 14 days after their arrival.
So who might book these flights? Undoubtedly, it will be the people who urgently need to travel intercontinentally.
Perhaps it’s the Americans who have been in China for the past two months — there are many who split their time between family in the mainland and Northern California — or the foreign nationals here on the West Coast who have been unable to return home until now.
And of course, those big jets have big cargo holds, and there is plenty of pent-up demand for U.S. and Chinese products on both sides of the Pacific.
All three airlines are majority owned by the Chinese government (Air China is the national flag carrier), so operating these flights at near-empty loads and at a financial loss should not be much of a concern for each carrier. The likelihood is these flights will be mostly empty, and that’s okay when you have the deep pockets of the Chinese government to finance these flights.
Thus, the provisions of the Trump travel ban remain in place related to Chinese nationals and others.
No question there is pent-up demand for goods from China, but that demand only further points to the madness that the U.S., thanks to 28 years of globalist administrations prior to Trump’s taking office, allowed our country to become insanely dependent on China for the supply chains related to a vast array of critical products.
The very fact that our own government is even contemplating allowing flights from China to California to resume while the California population is being told to shelter in place is a special kind of madness of its own. And it needs to end.
This crisis is a golden opportunity for President Trump to force any U.S. corporation that will be receiving bailout funds to move their entire supply chains and the jobs associated with them back to America. Period.
Don’t let this crisis go to waste, Mr. President. End this madness.
That is all.
