Quarantine Centers Pre-Planned

As King County, Washington, buys a MOTEL for use as a quarantine center, a network of FEMA facilities across California was created by a January 8th executive order. Who created these quarantine centers BEFORE the epidemic spread, and what does that tell us about whether this pandemic will continue in the US? Watch to find out — and spread the word. More from the Ice Age Farmer.

The number of coronavirus cases around the globe has now surpassed 102,000. There are new cases in Bhutan as well as Colombia and Peru. Styxhexenhammer666 discusses as well as touts his new coronavirus song.

As worldwide coronavirus cases blow past 100,000 people, the question on everyone’s mind is: “How do I avoid getting infected?” Chris Martenson goes through the best steps for self-protection in this video (jump to the 35m:10s mark for his summary)

Crazy infectious with a serious complication rate near 15% and a case fatality rate of over 3%, many of us are likely to catch this virus, and most of us will probably know at least one person who dies from it. And with that many sick people, the health care systems around the world are going to be overwhelmed. Even if you don’t have the virus, you still may not be able to get critical care for other health emergencies (sickness, injury, baby delivery, etc)

Chris shares some of the dozens of stories we’re receiving from health practitioners all over the world who feel shocked and betrayed by how poorly their hospitals are prepared for what’s coming. So take steps now to increase your odds of being one of those who avoids covid-19 altogether.

Remember how a few days ago, we linked San Francisco to the McDonalds dead raccoon cvirus, found Raccoon and crown streets nearby in Google Earth and compared Alcatraz to a quarantined ship out in the bay?! Well, now another cruise ship is being held in quarantine in the port of SF!! This is a spiritual battle as I told you. More from EntertheStars Reloaded.

Colombia’s Hippo Problem

The hippopotamus is native to Africa, so why are there so many in Colombia? The story goes that Pablo Escobar, one of the most infamous and successful drug lords in history, amassed a fortune producing and trafficking cocaine out of his home base in rural Colombia. And with all his drug money, Escobar wanted to build his own personal zoo, so he imported exotic animals from across the world, including four hippos.

Unfortunately, Escobar met an untimely death in the early 1990s and the government reclaimed his estate and distributed the animals to other zoos in the country, except for the hippos, which were left to fend for themselves in and around the Magdalena River. The four hippos multiplied to 50 and are now a ticking time bomb. Learn how Colombia is dealing with the problem in this episode of Vox.

Colombia’s Hidden Killers

The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC, was founded five decades ago as a Marxist people’s army fighting against capitalist imperialism and Colombia’s often-brutal government. And they’ve been fighting a protracted bloody war ever since. In recent years, FARC has devolved into a guerrilla force that threatens the very people it originally sought to protect. Why? Because in order to secure their dwindling territory and lucrative coca fields, FARC has buried thousands of land mines in civilian areas. Since 1990, there have been over 10,000 land mine victims in Colombia, the second-most in the world behind Afghanistan.

The Goose-Stepping Democrats

Three Democratic dimwits have made headlines by playing the Nazi card against Republicans. South Carolina’s Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian was among these slanderous slugs, likening his state’s governor, Nikki Haley, to Hitler’s down-in-the-bunker mistress Eva Braun. Here’s how Harpootlian explained his outrageous claims.

Harpootlian admits he engaged in hyperbole and mudslinging, citing the heat of political combat as his excuse. One might be inclined to forgive him, except his comments came in tandem with similar charges leveled by Kansas Democratic Labor Committee president Pat Lehman and John Burton, the Democratic party chairman from California, who both asserted that the GOP had taken a page out of Joseph Goebbels’ playbook by spreading “The Big Lie” during the Republican Convention in Tampa.

So, are the Democrats getting swept up in the fever-pitch of their emotions, or are they engaged in a cold, calculated effort to plant a false, half-cocked meme? In answer to that, let’s dial the clock back to when the GOP waged the good fight against Obamacare. How did US Congressman Steve Cohen, a Tennessee Democrat, react to the opposition? Listen to him speak on the floor of the House.

In short, the Democrats have been persistently pounding the drum, engaging in a bombastic and brazen campaign to tar Republicans with the stench of Nazism. The biggest problem with that? It’s the Democrats whose policies, by and large, replicate those of Adolf Hitler. How, you ask? Let’s examine the brutal truths.

  • Between 1933 and 1939, in the build-up to WWII, Hitler’s National Socialist government collected revenues of 62 billion marks, but spent 101 billion marks, disregarding the ever-increasing deficits while amassing a national debt exceeding 38 billion marks. Sound familiar?
  • To try to stimulate Germany’s economy and erase the deficits, Hitler abolished the gold standard and enacted Keynesian policies, involving large governmental and public works projects as a means to close the gap and reduce unemployment. Ring a bell?
  • At the same time, Hitler pushed a trade policy called autarky — designed to discourage open and free trade with other nations, except for vital, raw resources needed to develop Germany’s military arsenal. When President George W. Bush took office, the United States had free-trade agreements in place with only three nations — Canada, Mexico and Israel. Bush negotiated 14 additional such agreements. President Obama has negotiated none on his own, but did sign into law pacts with Colombia, Panama and South Korea put into motion in the Bush years.
  • Hitler consolidated and nationalized key German industries, viewing capitalism with disdain as being brutal and unjust. He presented himself as a champion for workers’ rights, but insisted the workers submerge their individual wills to the collective good of the whole, as embodied by the state.  Interesting that the Democrats showcased a video at their convention in Charlotte on the theme “We All Belong to the Government.”

  • Hitler hated smoking, was a vegetarian, an ardent environmentalist and favored stringent gun control measures for the general public. Does that sound like any Democrats you know?
  • The Nazis were the first government to widely disseminate contraceptives as part of a larger policy, involving enforced sterilizations and euthanasia, aimed against non-Aryans. How many speakers in Charlotte railed about contraceptives? Essentially, everyone who took the podium. True, they talked about birth control as a right, and not as something sinister. But they did not present it as a God-given right, having already removed any religious reference whatsoever from their party platform.
  • They also had stricken the platform’s longstanding language to proclaim Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. I’m not going to argue that decision equates morally with Hitler’s extermination of 6 million Jews. But I will say this, and say it without hesitation. When I meet people who are anti-Semitic these days, they are not generally right-leaning wingnuts, but rather the loons who occupy the so-called “Progressive” wing of the Democratic Party. These folks have grown more strident and shrill over the last few years, emboldened in their arrogance by the false messiah they put into the White House.

Is Obama Der Fuehrer? Are Democrats his brownshirt disciples? Unlike Misters Harpootlian, Burton and Cohen, and Ms. Lehman, I’ll give the donkey’s asses the benefit of the doubt. Few of them, I’m convinced, know enough about history to understand just how dangerously naive, or potentially insidious, their policies are. That said, it’s incumbent upon the rest of us, whether we’re Republicans, Libertarians, independents or otherwise — to push back and do whatever we can to restrain and ridicule the worst of the Democrats’ extremist tendencies.

I won’t attempt to tell you what you must do, because that’s really your own individual call to make, in accordance with your own religious and political beliefs.  All I’ll say here: The Democrats should be looking into the mirror before slinging around allegations of Nazism. Shame on them and their enablers in the media, Hollywood and academia. When you’re talking Nazism, the boot fits them a lot more closely like a glove, than ever could be applied to any of us who believe in free markets, the free exchange of ideas and individuals exercising independent thought.

Captive Radio

Huber Hoyos’ early Sunday morning broadcast every week on Caracol Radio has a small but vital audience — the more than 1,000 hostages held captive by FARC guerrillas in the jungles of Colombia. Hoyos, a former hostage himself, calls his show “The Voices of Kidnapping.” His guests are relatives of the hostages who use the program to communicate with their loved ones. Lauren Rosenfeld profiles these families in her new documentary, Captive Radio, winner of the 2012 Hearst Documentary Award. Here’s an excerpt from the film, recently uploaded by ifilestv, a news-oriented YouTube channel curated by the Center for Investigative Reporting.
