Today’s Campaign Update, Part II (Because the Campaign Never Ends)
“There’s something happenin’ here. What it is ain’t exactly clear.” – Not trying to raise alarm here, but it is becoming increasingly apparent that there may be some larger agenda taking place in our society behind the scenes that has not yet risen to the surface.
The government’s response to the China Virus, so oversized when compared to its responses to H1N1 and other previous virial plagues, indicates that either we are not being told the entire truth about this current virus, or that something else is driving this train.
The manner in which the national media worked in overdrive during February to create a national panic cannot be discounted as a motivator of the government’s decision to literally shut down 75% of the U.S. economy in an unprecedented attempt to control the spread. But does that really explain it all? The destruction of wealth we have witnessed in just the past few weeks is astonishing, as millions have lost jobs and businesses and seen their retirement funds decimated.
If this was, as we were initially told, just a two-week effort to control the spread, then a quick recovery might be in the offing. But as this past week progressed, the estimates of timelines began to extend as the measures by state and federal governments became more draconian. The states of California, New York and Illinois are either now or will soon be 100% shelter in place mode with people allowed outside their homes for only a few exceptions. More states will no doubt follow within days.
Policing these shelter-in-place orders will require the activation of state National Guard units, and we can see the Administration already making plans to acquiesce to pressure from various governors – like New York’s Andrew Cuomo – to activate Army units to assist.
Certainly, the justification for such measures of trying to avoid overwhelming our hospitals and medical supplies/equipment is a reasonable objective. But if we create a 25% unemployment rate and skyrocketing poverty and homelessness in the process, thousands more Americans will die in the coming months not from the Chinese Flu, but from inability to feed themselves or obtain proper medical care.
If we had seen this kind of government reaction to the H1N1 outbreak in 2009/10, when Barack Obama waited until 60,000 were infected and over 1,000 dead before really doing much of anything, then all of this would be understandable. But obviously, we did not see that then, in part because the lapdog media never questioned anything Saint Barack ever did or said.
As much as I like and trust President Trump to protect the American people above all else, there can be no denying at this point that we are literally turning our country into a police state and destroying a massive slice of our economy in order to limit the spread of this virus. We are told that this is all temporary, but how temporary it all is just keeps becoming less and less temporary with every passing day.
Something bigger is in play here. What it is ain’t exactly clear, yet, but we will know soon enough. Again, this is not to raise alarm – I can think of several potential scenarios that would actually be positive developments in the long run.
Be careful. Be safe. Protect your loved ones. Pay careful attention to what the President is telling you and no attention at all to CNN or the New York Times.
That is all.
