Facts Behind the Coronavirus Outbreak – It Could have been Stopped!

The U.S. leaned forward and took immediate action in an attempt to grasp the magnitude and subsequent impact of the virus. The U.S. Intelligence Community had information on the situation in China and the early outbreak of the Coronavirus in Wuhan. President Trump had the information and acted early on to better understand the ramification and impact in order to prevent the spread.
The President in order to reduce political sensitivities, embarrassment, and panic addressed his warnings and concerns with China’s leadership through direct phone calls and diplomatic channels. After analyzing and assessing the situation and the potential impact both in China and the likelihood of it spreading internationally, President Trump through a number of U.S. agencies, offered China assistance.
In this effort, the President offered assistance from the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Nation Institute of Health, the U.S. Military, and the U.S State Department.
Despite the rising numbers in both coronavirus infections and fatalities, China’s President Xi refused offers of assistance from the foremost agencies on infectious disease. On multiple occasions, starting in late December and early January, the President had offered to send a team of experts from the U.S. Epidemic Intelligence Service. Unfortunately, China pushed back. The back and forth offer and refusal went on for more than a month to no avail, through late February.
Similarly, as a note, the same occurred with the World Health Organization which also met resistance in both offering assistance and to travel to Wuhan to analyze the situation.
A number of U.S. top diplomats reported back to the President that they were deeply concerned that China did not and does not want to appear to be unable to handle the on-going epidemic problem alone.
President Trump by offering the assistance of the CDC, that he hoped that by observing the medical conditions, it could improve an American response to any threat of a widespread outbreak in the U.S.. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar confirmed this in early February, saying, “We continue to expect fully that President Xi will accept our offer. We’re ready and willing and able to go.

Nevertheless, AND THIS IS IMPORTANT, as a result, had the Chinese authorities had acted three-weeks earlier — the number of coronavirus cases could have been reduced by 95% and its worldwide geographic spread limited.

Unfortunately, China’s negative reaction, refusal of assistance and deliberate and intentional effort to cover-up the crisis and the subsequent delay in accepting assistance of critical capabilities and help in taking necessary measures to contain the virus lasted about three weeks. This was totally reprehensible on the part of President Xi and the Chinese Government.
Again, bottom line – China’s cover-up and the subsequent delay to take serious measures to contain the virus, lasted at least three weeks which helped fuel the pandemic.
The news organization Axios Media has compiled a timeline of the earliest weeks of the Coronavirus outbreak in China. *I will note that as a source, Axios has a ‘left of center’ political bias that favors the Left. The Axios timeline highlights when China’s cover-up started and ended — and showing how, during that time, the virus already started spreading throughout the world, including to the United States.
According to Axios, the timeline was compiled from information reported by the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, the South China Morning Post, and other international sources. The chart/timeline back-up the intent of President Trump and the critical events leading up to current situation.
Dec. 10: Wei Guixian, one of the earliest known coronavirus patients, starts feeling ill.
Dec. 16: Patient admitted to Wuhan Central Hospital with infection in both lungs but resistant to anti-flu drugs. Staff later learned he worked at a wildlife market connected to the outbreak.
Dec. 27: Wuhan health officials are told that a new coronavirus is causing the illness.
Dec. 30:

  • Ai Fen, a top director at Wuhan Central Hospital, posts information on WeChat about the new virus. She was reprimanded for doing so and told not to spread information about it.
  • Wuhan doctor Li Wenliang also shares information on WeChat about the new SARS-like virus. He is called in for questioning shortly afterward.
  • Wuhan health commission notifies hospitals of a “pneumonia of unclear cause” and orders them to report any related information.

Dec. 31:

  • Wuhan health officials confirm 27 cases of illness and close a market they think is related to the virus’ spread.
  • China tells the World Health Organization’s China office about the cases of an unknown illness.

Jan. 1: Wuhan Public Security Bureau brings in for questioning eight doctors who had posted information about the illness on WeChat.

  • An official at the Hubei Provincial Health Commission orders labs, which had already determined that the novel virus was similar to SARS, to stop testing samples and to destroy existing samples.

Jan. 2: Chinese researchers map the new coronavirus’ complete genetic information. This information is not made public until Jan. 9.
Jan. 7: Xi Jinping becomes involved in the response.
Jan. 9: China announces it has mapped the coronavirus genome.
Jan. 11–17: Important prescheduled CCP meeting held in Wuhan. During that time, the Wuhan Health Commission insists there are no new cases.
Jan. 13: First coronavirus case reported in Thailand, the first known case outside China.
Jan. 14: WHO announces Chinese authorities have seen “no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus.”
Jan. 15: The patient who becomes the first confirmed U.S. case leaves Wuhan and arrives in the U.S., carrying the coronavirus.
Jan. 18:

  • The Wuhan Health Commission announces four new cases.
  • Annual Wuhan Lunar New Year banquet. Tens of thousands of people gathered for a potluck.

Jan. 19: Beijing sends epidemiologists to Wuhan.
Jan. 20:

  • The first case announced in South Korea.
  • Zhong Nanshan, a top Chinese doctor who is helping to coordinate the coronavirus response, announces the virus can be passed between people.

Jan. 21:

  • The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirms the first coronavirus case in the United States.
  • CCP flagship newspaper People’s Daily mentions the coronavirus epidemic and Xi’s actions to fight it for the first time.
  • China’s top political commission in charge of law and order warns that “anyone who deliberately delays and hides the reporting of [virus] cases out of his or her own self-interest will be nailed on the pillar of shame for eternity.”

Jan. 23: Wuhan and three other cities are put on lockdown. Right around this time, approximately 5 million people leave the city without being screened for the illness.
Jan. 24–30: China celebrates the Lunar New Year holiday. Hundreds of millions of people are in transit around the country as they visit relatives.
Jan. 24: China extends the lockdown to cover 36 million people and starts to rapidly build a new hospital in Wuhan. From this point, very strict measures continue to be implemented around the country for the rest of the epidemic.
The bottom line: China is now trying to create a narrative that it’s an example of how to handle this crisis when in fact its early actions led to the virus spreading around the globe.
Go deeper: China’s coronavirus cover-up was among worst in history, congressman says.

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Does Joe Biden Aspire to be America’s Last President?

Most ominously, no American administration has ever seemed so entirely unconcerned about hemorrhaging political capital. And that lack of concern about voters’ approval can only mean that this administration no longer believes it relies on political capital (the consent of the governed) for power. We can only assume that this Marxist-aligned administration intends to authorize itself with whatever power it requires to achieve its ends…

Criminal Intimidation Led By Schumer and Pelosi are America’s Domestic Terrorists

The SCOTUS leak was explicitly designed to tip the balance back to Progressivisms demands and rally the Democrat base to intimidate conservatives, political and business leaders by threats of violence because the country is in a Biden mess, one he created in January 2021 to reflect his party’s image as one that clings to the failed philosophy of Marx and Engles…

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

Pennsylvania Races Plunge to Swampy Politics 

The establishment has money and counts itself as power brokers. They love the status quo, the “don’t rock the boat” mentality. They pronounce, “This is our guy!” and expect the masses to get in line. However, many are standing up and deciding to vote conscience over party or affiliation – regardless. But aren’t those the same “stand up” attitude and actions that formed this great nation?

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

The Ignorance of Politicians Wishing for a Non-Carbon Future is Insane

Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) seems unaware that in a “non-carbon future,” everything would be dead since carbon is the primary building block of life. Undeterred, the AP release from Beyer’s office claimed: “Warmer temperatures are lowering workers’ incomes, and the increased severity and frequency of natural disasters is lowering overall economic growth…The cost of inaction will be catastrophic.”
