SWINE FLU: Biden also said the Obama administration responded quickly.
On April 26, 2009, American health officials declared the H1N1 virus outbreak a public health emergency; Obama’s then-Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano downplayed the announcement, calling it “standard operating procedure.
And after then-Vice President Joe Biden said he would advise his family to avoid flying or being in confined spaces, the White House scrambled to walk back his comments, Bidensplaining that what he “meant to say” was just, “if you’re feeling sick, don’t travel.”
It wasn’t until SIX MONTHS later that Obama declared an H1N1 national emergency on October 23, 2009. By that time, millions of people in the United States had been infected, at least 20,000 had been hospitalized, and more than 1,000 had died.
Compare the NY Times’ statement that followed Obama’s announcement with what you’ve been hearing from the Left about COVID-19: “The declaration Saturday did not signify any unanticipated worsening in the United States of the H1N1 outbreak, officials said. It seemed likely, however, to increase concerns, disruptions and at times, panicky reactions, to a disease now affecting most parts of the world.”
MEDIA MALPRACTICE: On MSNBC’s “The Last Word”, host Lawrence O’Donnell openly claimed that “more people are dead and dying in America tonight because Donald Trump is president.” Huh?
Meanwhile, CNN had the Dow Jones ticker showing while the market was in freefall, but then disappeared it when the market began to rebound. During and following Trump’s speech the stock market rallied almost 2,000 points nearly wiping away all the losses.
“MSNBC and CNN … are just thirsting for the Wuhan virus death toll to increase and markets to collapse to better the Democrats’ chances of booting Trump from office in 2020. It’s predictable. It’s grotesque. They’ve earned their new title with gusto: enemies of the people.
“If Trump does anything, it’s terrible. He can’t win—and he knows that, so he toys with them. And we mock accordingly because they are an insufferable bunch of self-righteous scumbags that are too blinded to their stupidity.” – Matt Vespa at Townhall
BERNIE: [:34] – Thank God neither one of these bozos is in charge right now.
TDS: These people are so blinded by their hatred and prejudice that they have lost what remained of their teeny, tiny minds.
Schumer complained that Trump hadn’t spent enough money while Pelosi declared he couldn’t have leftover, unspent Ebola virus money to fight it.
Stephen King looked at a photo that includes two females and a brown face, but saw only old, white men.
I don’t know whether to laugh at how stupid they are or cry because some of them are in positions of power.
WUHAN CORONAVIRUS: There’s an upside to everything – ISIS has notified its followers, “The healthy should not enter the land of the epidemic and the afflicted should not exit from it.”
EUROPEAN COURT OF “HUMAN” RIGHTS: Babies don’t count – The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) recently refused to hear the appeal of two Christian midwives from Sweden who were denied jobs for refusing to perform abortions. The ruling said the violation of the women’s consciences was “justified.”
In 2017, the same court upheld the decision of British doctors to deny the parents of a sick baby the right to seek medical care in the United States. The parents had raised money to pursue an experimental treatment for the boy, but the hospital refused to release him. The ruling said the boy should be allowed to “die with dignity.”
ABORTION LIES: Overturning Roe and Doe will not “kill women” – The CDC began collecting data on abortion mortality in 1972, the year before Roe was decided.
In 1972, abortion was only legal in 6 states and the District of Columbia. Ninety percent of all illegal abortions were being committed by trained physicians.
Sixty-three women died from abortions in the United States in 1972:
- 24 from legal abortions
- 39 from illegal abortions
The huge number (25,000 per year as I recall) cited by the abortion industry were fabricated by NARAL to scare people into legalizing abortion. We know they totally made it up, because NARAL founder Dr. Bernard Nathanson admitted to it after he switched sides.
If Roe and Doe are overturned, abortion will not suddenly become illegal in every state. It will return to being an issue legislated at the state level, just as it was before SCOTUS stuck its activist nose into the issue and forced abortion on the 44 states that didn’t want it.
CELEBRATING SIN: [5:55] – Last week, a TikTok video of a teenage girl getting an abortion at Planned Parenthood has gone viral. In the video, Ashley is shown happily dancing with anticipation in the waiting room, then giggling through the ultrasound.
May God have mercy on her soul and on the soul of this nation and the world that have made the slaughter of an innocent cause for celebration.
SORRY NOT SORRY: I’m guessing that when abortion activist Alyssa Milano put out a call for true life abortion stories, she wasn’t expecting these –
“My mom was a single mother, unmarried, daughter of a Pentecostal preacher, with a rare blood disease and working in a low wage factory job. She was encouraged to abort me told she & I would die. She chose life I’m now her caregiver. So there’s mine.”
“My grandmother was going to abort my mom but changed her mind last minute. Thankfully that means my mom, my two brothers and myself, and my two children all got to be born #sorrynotsorry”
“In late 1973 in San Francisco, my mother was told by 3 separate doctors at 3 different facilities to abort because she was 39 (ridiculous), Latina, and this would be her 6th. Was it racism? ‘You don’t have to tell your husband.’ How many babies didn’t make it in this situation? She told them she could never kill her child. My mother, frightened by this harassment, stopped going to prenatal visits. I was born at SF General Hospital instead of her regular hospital.”
“I went to an abortion clinic daily for over a month….. couldn’t do it! Thank God I didn’t because my beautiful daughter is one of my greatest gifts to the world! #IWasRaped #metoo #Infanticide”
Other women wrote to say how much they regret their abortions, including this:
“It was a horrific experience. Planned Parenthood had beds in a large room with buckets of blood and mutilated babies in them. Decades later, it still drives me to tears knowing I killed my own child. Much therapy was needed afterwards.”
