    Dawn called me downstairs to watch the news this evening. She was very emotional after seeing the clip about the Italian neighborhood of people self-isolating in their apartments with the windows opening singing the country's national anthem together. She said that if got crazy enough, she would go to a hospital. Her RN license is expired (and anyway, it's from Arizona, not Idaho); but if things got really stupid, she would do what she could. She said that, in the final analysis, some things are more important than survival.

    I'd rather be proud than ashamed.

    Good morning Duncan,

    You mentioned a substantive matter involving our fruited plain - the whole place from Big Sky Country to the Chesapeake Bay and all the rest.

    If Dawn can treat a Gila Monster bite in Arizona why could she not treat frost bite in Idaho as a RN ?

    I've already mentioned a major aspect of the American "problem" is the cartels, from the medical professions to the blue collar trades to the military to the ambulance chasers.

    Virginia only recently made exceptions for out of state licensees of the various fields to practice during emergencies under certain conditions. The emergency exceptions involves retirees also. It is still a mess -no lead time to prepare by those in a neighboring state and et cetra.

    ......

    I'm personally against the singing of songs, the candle vigils, the prayer sessions - even day-long mourning sessions. My view is an hour to reflect and contemplate the matter in one's own way and then action. Even the Italians in their apartment buildings can find important work to do in the building that helps address the pandemic situation.

    Something about this thing is not right. There is something about this that big brother is not telling us and their actions are giving it away. The President of the United States meeting with corporate leaders and locking down borders, even considering locking down states within the United States from other states? When has that ever been done for any reason? NEVER! Making executive orders, Corporations giving up the almighty dollar to shut their doors. Disney closed, NBA closed, NHL closed. etc etc. Don't for one second think that this thing is not something bad and it is coming.
    I work a few hours late at night for a company that delivers packages... I won't name it but it shouldn't be hard to figure out who it is. At 5am this morning I get a text message from then that says they are taking the health of their employees seriously and that we are of prime importance. It stated that if we are sneezing, coughing or running a temp or are in contact with anyone diagnosed with CoVid19 we are to remain home for two weeks. Now I have to tell you that the usual unspoken policy in this company is if you are sick...get your ass to work anyway.

    Now here is another kicker.
    So much of the side effects of this fall right into the hands of the globalist playbook.
    Stay home, can't work, we will send you a check. Universal Income?
    Mayor of Illinois city makes executive order banning the sale of firearms over public panic. Gun Control?
    Universal Healthcare coming soon to help you?
    Lets shut down elections due to possible spread of CoVid19?
    Stock Market crashing. Headed for digital currency?
    Anyone else seeing these possibilities?

    Something else....this is not just the flu.
    Family member has a close friend who is a Dr. in Cali... he says internal organ damage is prevalent in most survivors of this thing.
    The frikin flu doesn't destroy your lungs.
    Man made crap does those type of things, Not a natural flu.

    Coronavirus survivors may suffer from reduced lung function
    By Yaron Steinbuch

    Hospitals in China working to treat coronavirus patients

    Some patients who have recovered from the coronavirus have been left with a reduced lung capacity – and left gasping for air when walking briskly, according to a report.

    The Hong Kong Hospital Authority announced the findings after studying the first wave of patients who had fully recovered from COVID-19, the South China Morning Post reported.

    Three people have died of the illness in the former British colony, which has so far recorded 131 confirmed cases. Among them, 74 people have been discharged.

    Dr. Owen Tsang Tak-yin, medical director of the authority’s Infectious Disease Centre at Princess Margaret Hospital in Kwai Chung, said that of about a dozen discharged patients examined, two or three were unable to function as they had previously.

    “They gasp if they walk a bit more quickly,” Tsang told reporters Thursday, according to the news outlet. “Some patients might have around a drop of 20 to 30 percent in lung function [after recovery].”

    Lung scans of nine infected patients at the hospital suggested they had suffered organ damage.

    But Tsang said it had yet to be determined whether they would develop pulmonary fibrosis, a condition in which lung tissue hardened and the organ could not function correctly.

    He added that patients can perform cardiovascular exercises to improve their lung capacity over time.

    Coronavirus patients have been treated with Kaletra, a medication originally used for HIV/AIDS; hepatitis C drug Ribavirin; and interferon, according to the South China Morning Post.

    What if....
    What if this was a planned release of a toxin to force the implementation of globalism by removing a huge portion of the older generation who remembers.
    Remembers why we have freedom.
    Remembers our history.
    The history that has not been taught to the younger generations.

    The planned release was done to force the globalist agenda on us all because they were losing the war for their initiative.

    Is this a possibility?

    I'm not exactly trusting of USA Today as a news organization. They have a political agenda, to be sure. However it is no stretch of the imagination to see that U.S. hospitals will not be able to handle any pandemic, even a semi-pandemic.

    Here's an article by USA Today predicting a shortage of hospital beds should this Covid-19 get a foot-hold in America:

    Old Geezer you mentioning the hospital thing , I will repeat an earlier thread I posted . My daughter does not work directly with a nearby hospital but does indirectly " received a memo Friday from the hospital " . The hospital doors are now locked except the emergency room door . There anyone wishing to enter regardless of their purpose or condition will have to go through a physical screening . Anyone with a fever or any Corona Virus symptom will be turned away .----- Now that should help keep the government's Corona Virus official numbers down . That plus the rich and connected receiving priority of a testing kit . If they ain't tested they ain't counted , " they died of the flu " .

    the general public in the UK isn't being tested for the virus, they just don't have enough kits, if someone is admitted to hospital then they will be tested, so the numbers of people walking around with the virus could be larger.

    I saw on the news this morning that a doctor stated pandemics last three months. This shit storm should be over by Summer. I don't think we need conspiracy theories and shit.

    To not trust the government is patriotic, but common sense goes a long way. About a vaccine. It will be at least a year before one is created due to clinical trials. By the time one is developed the shit show will probably be over with until some idiot eats another god damn infected bat or snake in China and it starts all over again.

    My cousin who's a nurse echoed the same sentiments with me on the phone.

    I did hear the Trump Admin. was trying to create drive thru testing with companies like Walmart, CVS and Walgreens.

    Good morning Last Outlaw,

    In reply;

    I've already posted my basic view that the coronavirus pandemic is being responded to also as the vehicle to accomplish what cannot be done in the gridlocked governmental power blocs.

    Prior to Wuhan, it started with the 2 palace coup d' attempts against President Trump, the FICA frauds and then the impeachment.

    President Trump is changing the US position in the global world order - some aspects are from a position of US power and some from a position of US weakness. The power is the US economic system and domestic marketplace. The weakness is the US military. The US is being expelled from the Middle East and WESTPAC.

    The US medical response to the pandemic involves less of public health matters than the other major fields: finance, transportation, sheltering (includes getting food/household items delivered to store by trucks via maintained roads), public safety, fuel (WH announced with low world oil prices, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve will be "topped off" [Watch Russia and Saudi Arabia go into deep sweats; am guessing Iran might become a condominum owned by China and US).

    Domestically, the artificial wealth transfers are being eliminated. The teachers' unions are taking a "hit" now. The public pension funds, eg CalPERS, NY State Pension Fund, could realistically see their recipients relocating to small apartments in the Camden-Trenton, N.J. corridor. Is it not obvious that some form of national health delivery care is buried in this pandemic response ? I take due note that retired - RETIRED - CDC Dir Frieden is (is allowed to) making national policy statements. WHO's Dir Gen Ted is allowed to do something similar.

    Is there much significance that US stores are out of N-95 respirator masks ? It's not a sophisticated item to manufacture and distribute to stores. In December, the inventories were known and it was in December that CDC had a team in China. Medical expendables and durables are matters of routine audit and reporting.

    The US domestic financial matters help both the pandemic response and the viability of the US population. Remember First Lady's Hillary quote" It's hard to threaten your creditor". Besides the pension funds, getting around negative interest rates means something like $3 trillion in money market funds evaporating away. Regardless, much of this wealth was transfer payments; not from productive economic activity.

    The US pandemic response called "flatten the curve" means construction jobs pending for the construction industry. This land of abundance has wealth going to cruise ships and not medical and dental clinics. Trump is stopping this. Panic buying and violence in local area stores ? If the local political apparatus cannot rectify this: relocate ASAP. Avoid the Camden-Trenton, N.J. area.

    Voting postponements: Here in my area, the voting is rigged. Thus, not important except for national elections which are monitored by outsiders.

    MUCH of US Government foreign relations is secret. Do note there is no warfare going on in the US. Our foreign adversaries
    - and allies - were warned.

    Yes, I've been told that having the coronavirus reduces lungs' ability to process the former amounts of air for oxygen. I believe I have the coronavirus but respiration is OK, at least so far.

    ......

    The good news is that hurricane season is several weeks away and this makes the pandemic response workable. During a hurricane, the same fools who laughed at preppers will still laugh while driving to the emergency shelter - until they learn it's not going to open.

    I read somewhere that a scientist said this virus can be killed by UV rays from summer sunshine, this could be as early as May certainly no longer than June.
    this is why flu season(another virus) is normally in the winter in the cold and damp weather in which the virus thrives, it does not like heat and dry conditions.

    I am not a scientist but consider the hope being pinned on summer heat killing the virus a desperate hope . This virus is a different animal and really is not the flu . For all we know it might increase with summer heat . Lets say for conversation the summer heat does kill back the virus . Next fall it will explode like we have never seen as it lurks wide spread ready to pounce once weather starts to cool back down . ---- Frankly at this point even if summer heat does have an effect on it civilization is crumbling and rolling down the hill heading toward s-it creek . --- Actually I find Pragmatist above post reasonable and would not find it hard to believe the globalist one world order people are behind this . U.S. Democrats on another coup attempt of Donald Trump .

    as far as I am aware we do not have any members who are actual scientists or doctors, so all comments are personal opinions or what has been gleaned from other sources.
    a scientist or scientists have written that there are a family of diseases which come under the corona virus banner, covid 19 is one of these as is influenza, both are respiratory diseases which can cause pneumonia, we do find that these diseases diminish if not actually stop in the summer months when the weather is drier and sunnier, that's normally why the flu season happen is the winter months, in the northern hemisphere at least.
    there is some talk here in the UK of over 70 year olds going into isolation for 4 months even if they have no symptoms, but even worse than that there is now some talk of quarantining entire cities for several months on end, even the Prime Minister and the cabinet controlling things from a war bunker, if this happens the whole country will go downhill fast, and eventually societal collapse will be the result.

    If one believes the scientists that are pushed by the mainstream media on this subject I would guess it also is the same people who believe the scientists that are also pushed by the mainstream media on the global warming scenario. Personally, I do not trust anyone who's job relies on money gleaned from the outcome of their findings.

    I also do not believe that this "virus" came from a bat when the area that this started in has at least two major laboratories that work with these types of infections. I also do not believe everything people are saying about how serious this infection is. Many are trying to downplay this as just another flu epidemic being hyped by the media.

    The actions of Donald J. Trump tells me it is much more serious than they are acting like it is in order to quell the panic. I have only come to this conclusion in the recent couple of days if even that.

    President Trump has changed his tune in the recent days concerning this event. At first he played it off as hype. In the last couple of days however it has become a much more serious event in his own statements and actions. Stopping travel in from other countries is a clue . Considering locking down certain states within the US is enormous in it's telling of the real dangers of this. This has never been done in the history of our country that I can think of or even mentioned as a consideration over anything in the past.

    At this point my family is taking more and more precautions to remove outside contact. We already live in a remote area and are capable of locking ourselves down here for many many weeks with no outside contact. While I still work outside the property at two different jobs I have decided to drop one immediately as it is way too dangerous to keep at this point and already was becoming less and less of a viable employment position due to travel expense and time restraints not to mention wear and tear on vehicle and body. The second job is located very close to home and the employer has already made contingencies to pay all employees in the event of a lock down.

    Captain Trips may be upon us. Be prepared just in case.

    Here is a good look at where and how many "reported" cases and where within the United States they are located. I would assume there are already many many more than this as people travel around a lot.

    https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/coronavirus-us-cases.html

    If you think it already doesn't have a good foothold in the US you better go read up on how fast it moves. It is quick because it isn't detected for weeks after a person is infected.

    I don't know about the USA but here in UK the infection is now just over 1000 people with 21 dead all whom had underlying health conditions, in a population of 66 million that is a small amount.
    I do not believe in any of the talk of this being some kind of agenda 21 action or of any other physical attempt to control or limit population numbers.
    this disease may have come from a bat, many other diseases have come from eating wild animals together with a decrease in hygiene standards, our modern travel systems ensure that any disease of any kind can travel quickly from one country to another from one side of the planet to the other.
    whatever the cause this disease is now among us of that there can be no doubt, what matters now is how we deal with it.

    An article today in Zero Hedge by Doug Casey and frankly I don't know who that is are if he knows what he is talking about . Already coining our future as " The Greater Depression " . He says it will be much worse and last much longer than the great depression that ran from 1929 to 1946 . I don't know if his guess is any better than ours but this time I am leaning toward him being correct . ---- remember what happened to the banks in " the great depression " . I have already withdrawn my money out .

    Good morning Last Outlaw,

    Just read the Wash Times link.

    How does Dr Fauci obtain public safety protection when walking or driving in D.C., Maryland or N. Virginia ? LEOs and their support staff are currently at work. Others are at work clearing the blocked intersection crash. They are frequent enough.

    The same for the Fire Departments and the FAA controllers at the 2 large nearby airports.

    Groceries in Dr Fauci's house ?

    Thr N95 and P100 respirator masks arrive from origin to a medical facility he will visit via a sophisticated and fragile logistics system.

    China can lock down because they don't have the tort system we have here. We can get sued for just looking at someone the wrong way.

    How do I go to my rural post office to pick up my snail mail ?

    Dr Fauci is featured in much of the media because of his medical position re infectious diseases. Perhaps a better view of all this is that we as a nation are in a type of "civil war" whereas resources - especially wealth - flow to those not engaged in productive economic activity. A national emergency manager - perhaps former FEMA Dir Craig Fugate ("Waffle House index") has more realistic guidance. Of course the American public is too dumbed down to accept a Fugate over a Dr Faici so it won't happen. Large populations respond to their emotions and not facts.

    I do agree that closing down the nation's schools is a good idea. It will increase the students' knowledge.

    ......

    As an aside, can the US SUCCESSFULLY assemble field hospitals like China did in Wuhan ? Can a Texas EMT automatically work in Virginia before a declared emergency ? Can a private citizen from Mississippi, who owns a Mississippi-registered boat on car trailer do rescue work in Massachusetts prior to any declared emergency ? I'm thinking of Cajun Navy operations.

    .....

    We've just not set up for all this stuff.

    A foot note: During the Paradise, California wild fires, a trashy Californian shot a rifle at a responding fire truck that woke him up or some similar pseudo-reason. He was sentenced for a misdemeanor with nominal punishment. Why so few volunteers like the "good old days" ?

    I agree that the laws are ruining this country and stifling our chances of protecting the largess of the population. However I think what he has stated about locking down can happen on a smaller basis. Even on a really small basis such as your own family. People will do what has to be done when push comes to shove regardless of what government says. Hopefully when push comes to shove it won't be too late for some of us. I think this guy Fauci is used because he can explain these issues in laymans terms that everyone can understand.
    Sending kids home from school is a great idea as long as the moms and dads don't simply push them outside to go play with each other like a snow day. That will defeat the whole purpose. Most parents cant stand having their own kids around them for long periods of time.

    On the back end - I noticed many of the stores that are large still have ample shelf supply in their back stock rooms. A lot of this panic is supply/demand created by the stores themselves. I also noticed the price tag changes on those empty shelves out front - $1 more than they were last week!

    On the bright side ...

    What if this turns out to be a nasty pandemic, but no fire and brimstone pandemic -- end result being lot's of deaths among older people and hospitals depleted of resources. I doubt that front loaders will be scooping bodies off the streets and dumping tens of millions into mass graves; nope, just doesn't sound like it to me.

    What this scenario could do is point out that preparedness is priceless. Maybe people who were on the fence about prepping will actually begin to get their sh## together for when a REAL apocalyptic event occurs. The sheeple of course are incapable of being awakened. They will blame the government and call for a Socialist Utopia. They want to drink the Kool-Aid. They are the ones who drop their drawers and bend over for Big Brother. Can't fix that.

    Me, I think that the largest impact on Earth's population will be economic. World economies are fragile right now. There is a mighty war going on to replace the U.S. dollar with some other currency. Russia, a gold producer, is buying gold. That is downright crazy behavior, unless they are on an economic war-footing to utterly trash the US dollar. China is using its navy to push south to take the South China Sea and further yet so as to be able to drill the ocean bottom for oil and to cut off U.S. oil shipments.

    We here in the USA will inevitably get a Leftist regime in D.C., one more treasonous than was the Jarrett/Obama administration. Such an administration will succeed in hamstringing our military forces and when that happens, our enemies will take advantage of the situation and engage in military actions that will resign the USA to a mediocre economic entity on Earth. Know that the goal of the left is to rape America into submission to the New World Order -- atheist collectivism. To repeat, we are at war.

    Here's some info regarding packaged food supply chains:

    from Anchorage Daily News:

    https://www.adn.com/nation-world/20...shortages-amid-worry-about-restocking-stores/

    The two authors work for the Washington Post, a Leftist propaganda outlet; nevertheless, if the data is correct, we can use the information. One should always monitor the enemy's intel and scripted messages to the sheeple. It is profoundly illegal to hoard under a Leftist regime, for you are not sharing with the collective. Preppers will have to be "re-educated" to their true role as "one of many". I.E. why I own guns and ammo.

    This is allowing me to again see and have my nose rubbed in the fact that people these days are too stupid to survive much of anything. in the panic to stock up on the NECESSITIES, this is giving me a view of the stupidity and near insanity of many American voters.

    Just received through a Chinese connection . The general belief in China is the virus WAS lab created . The release of the virus was accidental . This outcome and what this means I will leave to the more knowledgeable on this subject . This has been speculated to be the case by some of our members . This may be as close to verification as we will ever get .

    Good evening Poltiregist,

    My knowledge is definitely less than your China contacts.

    I've heard about the Wuhan lab safety failure.

    Still, with the Prepper philosophy I use it doesn't matter.

    I use common denominators. Whether a lab failure - too much lab safety can never be enough - or the Wuhan wildlife market. ..... Beijing made some new laws closing down much of this wildlife dining practice......the Prepper is obliged to deal with the results of the origin / cause. The results are the same: maintain health, hygiene, keep stockpiles of food, water, med supplies and et cetra.

    Even if the US is terrorist-attacked using germ warfare, we're dealing with the same Prepper material - both knowledge and goods/services.

    I have more immediate bio concerns with the homeless living in the streets of our cities than Chinese research labs or their soon to close wildlife markets.

    I believe me and mine have already had coronavirus. Contracted it either in Honolulu, HI international airport or the flight back to the USA. Had the high fever, difficulty breathing, body aches but didn't realize what we had at the time. I actually thought it would be worse given the press and fear. I was concerned with the hundreds of Chinese in the airport that day but didn't think about it when sick.

    Just not sure if we had it or not.

    This point has been already been made several times on this site ... and by me, yet I can't stop myself from saying ...

    Of all the things over which one could panic, this Covid-19 ain't one of them.

    I'm old and not as robust as I once was; which is to say that this C19 could take me out. However, I'm not panicking. Ebola, now that would royally get my attention.

    Just got another email from work while writing this dang comment. Something else has been cancelled. People who were going to be trained in how to keep people from dying are now not going to be trained due to the fear of I don't know what. people could get sick. I'll let someone else deal with that anti-logic. Oh by the way, we have no cases. Oh hell, I'm getting another message, the count is at 3 "emergencies" ahhhhhhhhhhh! I'm going to turn off my phone.......

    We apparently are now living in some Felini film!

    I'm now at phone text message #6 and counting.

    Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone.
    Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone. Turn off your phone.

    I think that what we are seeing is simply that we have been preparing for and sort of expecting something that would kill at least 90% of the population of the civilized world. When you compare the coronavirus with at worst a 3% mortality rate among healthy adults and only a 15% mortality rate in people over the age of 85 this just isn't very impressive or frightening.

    In the world of the hardcore preppers/survivalists this is like the kiddie rides at the fair and not the big stuff.

    Boy, there's a lot of bullshit hearsay in here. It's one thing not to trust your government, but quite another not to use common sense. It's as if some people believe China is in concert with the U.S. and the "luminati" in order to create a super state or some damn thing so China agreed to release a virus from their lab. Am I in the ball park here?

    It's a known fact ever since the 1300s black plague that China has been responsible for more damn plagues. H1N1 was the latest, now we have this shit and we will prevail. Trump will kick ass, he'll get another four years and the economy will grow again. You need optimism in a time of doom and gloom and not make up fanciful bullshit.

    In other news, it is now believed Elvis killed JFK and escaped in a UFO only to crash in Roswell, New Mexico. The time line doesn't make any sense, but 9/11 was an inside job and stuff...

    So, I'm seeing discussions of universal income which would comprise $1000 per month for every adult and $500 per month for every child. I would guess this would be a digital currency deposited into an account or put on a card? If we are all locked down and made to stay indoors then I would assume we would have to pay for things online right?
    Also talk of shutting down all non essential businesses. Government bailing out all major corporations with subsidies. universal healthcare being discussed too all under the guise of fighting Covid-19.
    What isn't globalist about all of that?
    Why would Donald Trump be going right along with that plan?
    So lets say they implement all of that in the next few weeks. How will the people react?

    The only thing I've heard about a universal income was Yang's suggestion couple of months ago. You notice that he dropped out of the presidential race. I doubt that either the House or the Senate would even consider such a crackpot idea, and I doubt if Trump would sign such a bill into law, unless he thought it might get him more votes from his base. (Perhaps you're thinking about Mitt Romney's idea of a ONE-TIME payment for a thousand bucks per American.)

    As far as a single-payer healthcare plan is concerned, I suppose (especially if COVID-9 becomes much more serious) it could happen within five or ten years, but it'd be tough surviving the attacks of the insurance, legal, and medical lobbies.

    Globalist? I suppose you could call it that; after all, just about every country in the globe has such a healthcare policy (except for us). But I doubt if we'll see anything like that anytime soon!

    We will see. Sure seems like something is afoot. I could see world wide martial law being implemented on some levels. How far off is "shelter in place" from "you must remain in your homes"?

    DAMN, Outlaw! Looks like it's closer than I thought -- at least in California! Is that constitutional? Probably not, but you can bet your bottom dollar that the ACLU WON'T challenge it on constitutional grounds. Bastards!

      You don't need aloe vera, just alcohol. Take your old pump bottle and fill it with 70% (or more)
      rubbing alcohol. That's what I do but then I've been doing it for years because I have a 3000 gallon cistern (no water well) and can't keep washing, washing, washing or even flushing the the toilet every time. I can only shower once a week, unless I want to pay $325 a month for a truck to come to my rural location. That stingy gov deposit is too small.

    Good morning Poltiregist,

    When the colonies were in rebellion against the UK government, there were embargoes against the colonialists.

    I forgot the specifics but do remember a film at "Colonial Williamsburg" Virginia's historical center, that the locals brewed "grog" - some form of beer.

    If you remember back during the hunt for the Tsarnarev brothers after their little pressure cooker bombing residents were ordered into their homes while house to house searches took place. The people conformed. That wasn't Constitutional either. I can't help but wonder how much of all of this is testing to see how far the powers that be can push us or how much we will conform to their wishes without insurrection.

    We have mayors authorizing gun confiscation and we KNOW that is illegal and has absolutely nothing to do with this Chinese (using this term just to piss off China) virus. I love my country but despise the politicians running it.

    I have a family member living in the Pacific North West near Lebanon Oregon. He said he has heard rumors they are going to be locked down for at least 2 weeks. Said he came home from work to see National Guard setting up a compound or as he described it as "building a small city" there. He is in process of loading the family and all their gear and heading for locations he camps at in the Cascade range before lock down takes place. I will touch base with him at times when he comes down far enough out of the mountains to get a cell signal.

    Just remember that the government has no power over you, only God.

    This is a great test, and many people are failing very badly.
