Coronavirus Released on Purpose?

President Trump and Wuhan Institute of Virology

President Trump dropped a bombshell in his Saturday press conference, saying there is evidence that the coronavirus came directly out of the Institute of Virology in Wuhan, China—not from a seafood market. He said it was either deliberately released into the public or got out by mistake.

“It could have been stopped in China before it started and it wasn’t, and the whole world is suffering because of it,” the President said. He also said that if the Chinese were knowingly responsible, there should be consequences.

The Lancet, a medical journal, published a study demonstrating that of China’s original 40 cases, 14 of them had no contact with the seafood market, including Patient Zero. This was brought to national attention by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR, below)

Investigations Underway

The administration is conducting a full-scale investigation, according to Fox News. When completed, a determination will be made on how to hold China accountable for the pandemic. The Chinese Communist Party has not allowed outside investigators to look into what happened.

The World Health Organization was also complicit in hiding the release and taking action to combat it, according to Mr. Trump. Last week he announced that the US would cut off all funding to the W.H.O. until an investigation was completed.

Graph from the Washington IHME shows US peak has been reached; many states could open up by May 4 or sooner.

The deaths related to the coronavirus exceed 30,000 in the US. As Americans mourn lost loved ones and others continue to be infected, there is still good news. Half of the US may have been infected, yet without symptoms. Of those who have been infected and are ill with coronavirus, 98 percent will recover.

The projections have been way off.

  • Initial predictions were US deaths up to 2.2 million
  • New predictions are of total deaths between 30,188 and 60,308
  • Many states could open back up by May 4 or sooner

Making matters more confusing, the numbers of deaths caused by coronavirus may not be accurate. Since not all people are being tested, the virus could be the major cause of death, a contributory factor, or simply present when a person is dying of something else.

Why this Matters: Nearly 1.25 million people are killed in car accidents each year. That means auto accidents cause around 3,287 deaths per day. An additional 20-50 million people are injured or disabled.

Sunday: patriots protest ongoing shutdown in Washington State

Some Democrat Governors have been particularly harsh in imposing restrictions. For example:

Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan has forbidden the purchase of certain items in her state. While residents can shop at a Walmart, for example, they cannot purchase certain items (except online) like seeds, baby car seats, American flags, carpet, or paint. Other restrictions prohibit visiting relatives or friends, traveling to a second home, and operating a motorboat or a lawn care business. 

  • Several thousand protested in Lansing, demanding the governor relent and a recall petition is circulating online
  • Sheriffs in four counties have refused to “strict enforcement” of the governor’s orders

In Valley County, Montana, government-issued pink armbands must be worn to enter stores. The Valley County Health Department issues the bands to signify having been in the area for 14+ days while self-quarantined.

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam repealed voter ID laws, expanded early voting programs, and ordered people to stay home until June 10. President Trump singled out these restrictive programs in tweets saying: LIBERATE VIRGINIA, LIBERATE MICHIGAN, LIBERATE MINNESOTA!

New York City Mayor DeBlasio has warned that workplaces will need to conduct multiple temperature checks per day. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy suggested customers entering restaurants should be checked for a fever once his state emerges from its shelter-in-place status.

In England, the police are called when people violate the rule to leave your house just once daily to jog or walk the dog. The BBC says there has been a huge surge in reporting on exercise rule-breakers and neighbors speaking together over back yard fences. Some police departments have set up online portals to report such “quarantine-shaming.”

Opening Up America Again

The White House coronavirus task force issued “gating” criteria late last week to establish when it is recommended to reopen. The official statement can be found here. In summary, for 14 days there should be a downward trajectory of symptoms and cases before a state moves through each of four phases.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) displayed shocking hypocrisy from her $7.5 million San Francisco home last week, opening a drawer full of gourmet ice cream in her twin $24,000 Sub-Zero refrigerators. Meanwhile, 22 million Americans havefiled for unemployment. They are awaiting another stimulus check from the Federal government, which Nancy Pelosi refuses to fund. 

Also being held hostage is the loan program to small businesses (representing more than half of all employers) as Democrats demand more aid for state and local governments, hospitals and community-based lenders who serve special interest groups. Republicans are open to those items, but want to wait to better assess the need.

The House will not reconvene until May 4. 

Hillary Clinton and lawyer Marc Elias, who is pushing hard for ballot harvesting

Could Ballot Harvesting be a Pandemic Plum?

Democrats wish to include funding and ballot harvesting as part of virus relief legislation. As President Trump has pointed out, ballot harvesting is a pathway to fraud. This is the practice of allowing political operatives to collect voters’ ballots and turn them in en masse to polling places. It is Illegal or severely limited in most states, so that only household members can turn in each others’ ballots. Here’s why:

  • California legalized ballot harvesting in 2016. Two years later, despite holding substantial leads on Election Day, many Republican candidates saw their leads disappear as late-arriving Democrat votes were counted.
  • In Orange County, a traditional Republican stronghold, every House seat went to a Democrat after an unprecedented 250,000 vote-by-mail drop-offs were counted.
  • Both sides have been guilty. A Republican political operative in North Carolina was arrested related to alleged ballot harvesting in 2018.
  • Marc Elias, a lawyer for Hillary Clinton during her illegal email server scandal, has threatened to sue Nevada unless it relaxes its ballot harvesting rules come November.

Why this Matters: Because Democrats are pushing so hard for this practice, it is leading some to wonder if the virus didn’t provide an excuse that is just too perfect. This seems like a final effort to co-opt the November election, seeing that the previous strategies–Russian collusion, Ukrainian aid holdup/impeachment, and pandemic itself–didn’t work. 

How to Pray: For the spirit of freedom in Christ to rise up in God’s people to break out of this bondage of fear. Pray for those who have the virus that they would recover, and salvation for those who have not accepted the Lord Jesus Christ. Ask God to expose the roots of the virus and any wickedness. Pray for President Trump and his team, that the truth will rise and shine for all to see.

Exodus 1:13-14 -And the Egyptians made the children of Israel to serve with rigor: And they made their lives bitter with hard bondage, in mortar, and in brick, and in all manner of service in the field: all their service, wherein they made them serve, was with rigor.

Hebrews 2:14-15 – Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
