CORONAVIRUS: As of March 4, 80 people have been infected in 13 U.S. states.
As many Chinese factories remain closed, a bipartisan coalition in Congress has presented a bill aimed at addressing projected shortages of essential medical goods we buy from China.
On Wednesday, Speaker Pelosi finally brought the emergency coronavirus funding bill to a vote. It passed 415-2. The $8.3 billion in proposed spending is more than three times more than the $2.5 billion initially requested by the White House. The bill now has to go to the senate.
CHINA: An 18-month investigation by an independent China Tribunal has concluded that China has been and still is forcibly harvesting transplant organs from the bodies of political prisoners.
One piece of evidence was the recording of an undercover phone call made in 2016 with Zhu Jiabin, who was the head of the 610 Office in Mudanjiang, a city in Heilongjiang Province. The 610 Office is a Gestapo-like secret police force that was established expressly to carry out the persecution of Falun Gong adherents.
“I am called the butcher specializing in live organ harvesting. … It’s nothing, just like slaughtering pigs,” Zhu said in the phone call, before adding, “After scooping the organs out, I would sell them.”
SCHUMER vs. SCOTUS: “You will pay the price.” [:19] – As protests raged outside, the Supremes heard oral arguments in the case of June Medical Services LLC v. Russo which challenges a Louisiana law requiring doctors to have hospital admitting privileges close to where they perform abortions.
Five years ago, the Supreme Court overturned a similar law from Texas, but Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh were not on the Supreme Court at that time.
Chief Justice John Roberts issued a rare rebuke against Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, for his threatening remarks. “This morning, Senator Schumer spoke at a rally in front of the Supreme Court while a case was being argued inside. Justices know that criticism comes with the territory, but threatening statements of this sort from the highest levels of government are not only inappropriate, they are dangerous.”
CALIFORNIA: Destroying America has been the Progressives’ #1 agenda for the past hundred years.
HOLLYWOOD: You could be a criminal or an illegal alien or a Palestinian terrorist, and they would leap to your defense and support your rights. But if you’re a Republican or a Trump supporter, you’re the enemy, and they’re blatantly against you and proud of it. – Larry Elder
TENNESSEE: [6:55] – In the early morning hours of Tuesday March 3, 2020, a tornado struck Nashville and the surrounding areas.
The Holy Family stained-glass window at the Church of the Assumption was blown out, but the face of Baby Jesus survived intact.
VIRGINIA: [5:50] – This is really interesting. A Virginia legislator who aspires to run against the state’s gun grabbing governor, is challenging the notion that government can impose “gun free” regulations on citizens without making itself liable to harm done to said citizens by gun violence.
Not surprisingly, the vast majority of mass shootings in this country have been perpetrated in such areas.
Stupid signs don’t prevent gun violence; they invite it.
SHOUT YOUR ABORTION: “I was 18 years old, and with a guy I thought loved me. Over half a year into our relationship I found out I was pregnant. I was beyond excited, he was beyond angry. He told me I needed to get an abortion, he listed off all the reasons it would be beneficial to myself and him, I listened. I cried the whole way to the clinic, I cried when they gave me my ultrasound, I cried when they gave me the pill, I cried while he held my hand and said it would all be okay. Later that day I cried my eyes out in the shower, I cried out to God and begged him to forgive me, begged him to accept my lost soul after what I had done. I regretted it the moment I decided to do it, but I did it for what I thought was love. Two months later I found out I was pregnant again. I told him, I also told him I would never take another’s life again. He left me, left her, I haven’t heard from him since she was a week old. But, she’s happy, she’s alive, she’s hearing about God everyday and what is right and wrong. My only two wishes in this life are that I can prevent anyone else from making the mistake I made by making abortion illegal and that my child will still love me when I get to meet them after I die. I want this post to show you that it is a sin. It is a heinous act. It is murder. Murder stays with you forever, it reveals your heart that you took someone’s life every day you are alive, especially when that life you took was your own child. Do the right thing, LET THEM LIVE!”
