New Documents Show President Obama
Was in on the Flynn Takedown

New Documents Show President Obama Was in on the Flynn Takedown
Newly released documents from the Department of Justice show President Obama informed former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates of a phone call between former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in December 2016. He did so in the Oval Office.
“Yates first learned of the December 2016 calls between [LTG Michael] Flynn and [Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey] Kislyak on January 5, 2017, while in the Oval Office. Yates, along with then FBI-Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, were at the White House to brief members of the Obama Administration on the classified Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities in Recent U.S Elections. President Obama was joined by his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, and others from the National Security Council,” the document states.
“After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation,'” it continues.
That phone call became part of the FBI’s justification to interview Flynn on January 24, 2017. Ahead of that meeting, notes show agents planned to get Flynn to lie in order to pursue criminal prosecution or get him fired.
According to a memo Rice wrote to herself on January 20, 2017, her last day on the job, she and Vice President Joe Biden were in the room when Obama delivered the news to Yates.
President Obama and his intelligence officials, like Rice, Brennan and Clapper, have denied being involved in a malicious pursuit against General Flynn. Documents show that is far from the case.


Congress’ New Coronavirus Committee
Has Only Democrats

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has appointed several Congress members to an ad hoc committee to oversee the White House’s response to the coronavirus crisis. 
On paper, the House Select Coronavirus Committee will provide oversight into how the White House has spent money allocated for coronavirus relief in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. 
There’s one glaring problem. All of its members are Democrats. (Daily Wire)
“Pelosi had already announced that she intended to name the House’s third-ranking Democrat, Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), to lead the committee. On Wednesday, she selected six additional members, a mix of trusted lieutenants, veteran policy-writers and a vulnerable freshman to fill the high-profile positions,” Politico reported Thursday.
Among those selected, House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney (D-NY), House Small Business Committee Nydia Velazquez (D-NY), and House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman — and notable anti-Trump “resistance” leader — Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).
Politico reports that it is “not clear” whether Republicans will be invited to participate on the panel, but their inclusion looks unlikely. Pelosi has said, in the past, that the committee will be charged with overseeing how CARES Act funds are dispersed and checking up on White House watchdogs assigned to keep CARES relief funds accountable.
‘We must make sure that the historic investment of taxpayer dollars made in the CARES Act is being used wisely and efficiently to help those in need, not be exploited by profiteers and price-gougers,” Pelosi said in a statement announcing her committee selections.

Obama The Coverup Expert!

Documents Show Obama was Intimately

Aware of Flynn’s Intercepted Calls

Newly-released documents from January 2017 show outgoing President Barack Obama was intimately familiar with phone calls between Gen. Michael Flynn and then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
The government reportedly intercepted the calls Flynn made as a part of its routine surveillance on Russian officials and agents in the United States.  Obama brought up the intercepted call in a classified White House meeting on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.  
The president’s detailed level of knowledge caught then-Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates by surprise. By that time, top FBI officials had reviewed those communications and hadn’t found evidence of criminality or improper behavior. (RELATED: Pelosi Caught Trying to Scam Trump)
Yet it appeared Obama, who fired Flynn three years before, had an ax to grind. 
Townhall’s Katie Pavlich has more:

“Yates first learned of the December 2016 calls between [LTG Michael] Flynn and [Russian Ambassador to the United States, Sergey] Kislyak on January 5, 2017, while in the Oval Office. Yates, along with then FBI-Director James Comey, then-CIA Director John Brennan, and then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, were at the White House to brief members of the Obama Administration on the classified Intelligence Community Assessment on Russian Activities in Recent U.S Elections. President Obama was joined by his National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, and others from the National Security Council,” the document states.

“After the briefing, Obama dismissed the group but asked Yates and Comey to stay behind. Obama started by saying he had ‘learned of the information about Flynn’ and his conversation with Kislyak about sanctions. Obama specified he did not want any additional information on the matter, but was seeking information on whether the White House should be treating Flynn any differently, given the information. At that point, Yates had no idea what the President was talking about, but figured it out based on the conversation. Yates recalled Comey mentioning the Logan Act, but can’t recall if he specified there was an ‘investigation,’” it continues.

That phone call became part of the FBI’s justification to interview Flynn on January 24, 2017. Ahead of that meeting, notes show agents planned to get Flynn to lie in order to pursue criminal prosecution or get him fired.

According to a memo Rice wrote to herself on January 20, 2017, her last day on the job, she and Vice President Joe Biden were in the room when Obama delivered the news to Yates.

The Justice Department declassified these documents yesterday after dropping its case against Flynn. 
The next question for us inevitably becomes whether or not officials will be held responsible for their prosecution of Flynn, a reality Attorney General William Barr is well aware of.

The 2020 Election – Incredible Trump 2020 Campaign Ad – A Must Watch

What is very interesting is that Trump would even do such an advertisement. The Democrats have organized themselves into “The Resistance” to sabotage President Trump. This is really a major confrontation for Democracy is dead and indeed the press has lost all integrity and is no longer balanced. Many are confused. Why do the Democrats hate Trump so much? It certainly seems that they are so against him because he cannot be bribed and as such is overturning their feeding trough.
There are many people that wonder what is going on. This advertisement is truly amazing insofar it is exposing a lot of issues that many people find questionable. There are some entities that Trump points out in this advertisement from Soros to the bankers who I can personally attest have been engaged in trading markets for major gains and rely on the SEC and CFTC to always look the other way. Some banks have been paying bribes to achieve their goals in markets. I have called them “The Club” for they were outright soliciting me to join.
This 2020 election will be different. It will be very interesting, to say the least. This ad DOES NOT target a specific candidate. So it seems to be throwing down the gauntlet for an all out war. This is very curious for it is a major departure in how politics had been played. The point here is that the gloves have come off. I have been warning that the 2020 election could be the most violent. Perhaps we have not seen anything yet.

‘No Discretion to Disclose’ Tara Reade Report

Secretary of Senate to Biden: ‘No Discretion to Disclose’ Tara Reade Report

Joe Biden
SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images
Late last week, Joe Biden released a bizarre two-page statement. It began acknowledging April as “Sexual Assault Awareness Month” but immediately turned to his defense of the Tara Reade allegations. Biden vehemently denied the accusations and pivoted to the Senate as responsible for finding documentation on the matter. “There is a clear, critical party of this story that can be verified. The former staffer has said she filed a complaint back in 1993. But she does not have a record of this alleged complaint” Biden state
After chastising Ms. Reade for not having any record, he immediately admits he too would not have possession of any complaint in the very next sentence: “The papers from my Senate years that I donated to the University of Delaware do not contain personnel files.” Biden then says, “there is only one place a complaint of this kind could be – the National Archives.”
“I am requesting that the Secretary of the Senate ask the Archives to identify any record of the complaint she alleges she filed and make available to the press any such document,” Biden’s statement demands. The Senate worked fast, as they responded to the presidential hopeful Monday morning. Secretary of the United States Senate Julie Adams released a statement saying, “the Secretary has no discretion to disclose any such information as requested in Vice President Biden’s letter of May 1.”

Philip Wegmann  @PhilipWegmann · 

Biden says if Tara Reade’s complaint is anywhere, it’s in the National Archives. He requests the secretary of the Senate to probe those archives: “If there was ever any such complaint, the record will be there.”

Biden’s statement references the National Archives and his belief that they would obtain any complaint due to Fair Employment Practices. “The National Archives is where the records are kept at what was then called the Office of Fair Employment Practices,” Biden’s statement said. The National Archives issued a statement saying any Fair Employment Office complaint “would have remained under the control of the Senate.”
Despite the confusion as to where the complaint may live, no entity has denied or confirmed its existence. It is only the protocol to release any such document that is being discussed; not the merits or occurrence of the alleged complaint. “Adams’ Monday statement did not deny that the complaint might exist or that it could be at the National Archives. It said that she would not be able to release the complaint if it does exist because of a law that ensures the confidentiality of such complaints,” reported Fox News.
Reportedly the Biden campaign has since contacted the secretary of the Senate to ask if the “existence of any such records’ is subject to the same ‘prohibition on disclosure,’ if there is anyone who could lawfully view them, and if the Senate could release the procedures followed for the year in question for such complaints” according to Fox News.

BIDEN: ‘Workers Don’t Have to Leave Work to Be Fired in Order When They Get Sick to be Able to Live

Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign this week; rambling through a series of questions on social media when asked to comment on paid sick leave during the Coronavirus pandemic.“Workers don’t have to leave work to get, to be fired, in order when they get sick to be able to continue to live!” said Biden.

Biden just doesn’t make sense anymore.

Biden made similar comments last week; suggesting more than 600,00 Americans have died from the virus.

Over 600,000 dead. Many are workers, nurses, doctors, because they have put themselves in a position to save other people’s lives and protect the rest of society. We talk about that number, 600-plus thousand people… 60? 60-thousand, I misspoke.

The recess” period enables a select cadre of leadership under directions of Speaker Pelosi to hammer out the next coronavirus deal with minimal input from most of the country’s elected representatives.

Rep. Warren Davidson: Coronavirus relief — make Congress work again before more deals approved

Last month, Congress made history by passing the CARES Act — the $2 trillion coronavirus pandemic relief package — by voice vote. Last week, the House safely, albeit briefly, returned to extend several programs. Otherwise, however, Congress has been eerily silent.  No doubt individual members have been busy working via Zoom and conference call — I certainly have. But Congress needs to lead by example and return to full session, following the House rules for amendment and debate. The House was expected back in D.C. on May 4, but now Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has a new plan.
Even before we passed “Phase 3.5” of Congress’ coronavirus response package, Pelosi started working on “Phase 4.” This interminable “recess” period enables a select cadre of leadership to hammer out the next coronavirus deal with minimal input from most of the country’s elected representatives.  Every representative should provide input and be able to offer amendments, but Pelosi would rather bypass the legislative process and continue shunning regular order.  Keeping the House from convening takes the heat off the negotiations and relegates most of Congress to an open checkbook for whatever emerges from behind closed doors. Without returning to full legislative session, members of Congress don’t have as much of a voice in the hastily written trillion-dollar bills with flaws that amount to legislative malpractice.

Rapid stimulus funding has overtaken deliberating the substance of these bills; that must change.

Given the cracks we’re starting to see in the CARES Act, it’s only responsible for Congress to deliberate more carefully before approving another wave of spending. For example, states have asked the federal government for more money. But the reality is Congress already funded state and local governments to the tune of $765 billion. That includes $260 billion for unemployment insurance, $150 billion for coronavirus relief, $175 billion for hospitals and health care providers, $50 billion in increased Medicaid funding, and hundreds of billions of dollars in K-12 and higher education funding, mass transit funding, programs for children and families, public housing, economic development grants, Justice Department grants, and election security grants.
In my home state of Ohio, that has translated to roughly $4.5-billion, with more on the way.
These budget-busting relief packages have been implemented with no process for debate and amendment and that needs to change before Congress creates even greater distortions to the federal budget.  More than additional funds, states need flexibility to use money already appropriated. It seems that governors and legislatures know their needs better than D.C. central planners. Ohio, for example, has reformed pension obligations, funded them, and created a rainy-day fund. Other states effectively commit fraud by promising defined benefits and failing to fund them.
States not only know their own needs better than D.C., they already have access to bond markets to fund additional needs and can pay risk-appropriate rates on the debt rather than socialize decades of poor decisions across all other states and taxpayers. These budget-busting relief packages have been implemented with no process for debate and amendment and that needs to change before Congress creates even greater distortions to the federal budget.
The country’s relationship with Congress has been purely transactional for a long time. Over the years, a faltering Congress has delegated away many of its powers — except the power of the purse. This pandemic further highlights the extent to which Congress has disempowered itself. House leadership enjoys greater influence at the expense of the institution itself while diminishing the role of individual members.
The Capitol Hill campus in Washington, D.C. is probably a far safer place to work than many of the businesses open continually in Ohio and across the nation. During the pandemic, the Capitol grounds and buildings have been closed to all unescorted visitors, and that probably won’t change for many weeks to come. Only members of Congress, staff, Capitol police, and essential personnel move about freely. As we saw last week, social distancing in voting is possible, and it can also work for committee hearings. Congress can and must work safely, but soon.
As the Senate returns to work, Pelosi is keeping House members home — and out of the negotiations. The American people, and every member of the House, should insist on fully functional representation.

Make Congress work again!

Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn was Target Zero in the Russia Collision conspiracy

How Michael Flynn Became Target Zero in Obama’s Russia Collusion Plot

“Folks, that’s just weird on its face,” Conway continued, as if folks needed to be told. “You gotta worry about a nuclear-capable dictator in North Korea, and you gotta worry about a general of 37 years who served in… the Obama administration.”  Conway’s comments came in the wake of the unnerving revelation that FBI higher-ups actively plotted to drive Flynn, the designated national security adviser, from the Trump White House.
“What’s our goal? Truth/Admission or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?” wrote an FBI official, believed to be former FBI counterintelligence director Bill Priestap. “If we get him to admit to breaking the Logan Act, give facts to DOJ & have them decide. Or, if he initially lies, then we present him [redacted] & he admits it, document for DOJ, & let them decide how to address it.”  This revelation shocked even Bush confidantes into outrage. “On what planet is it ever acceptable for FBI agents to discuss how or if they can get someone fired?” tweeted Ari Fleischer, former Bush White House spokesman. “Comey and his top officials were out of control.”
Lost in the hubbub was the question of why it was Flynn who so concerned Barack Obama. The more general answer is that Flynn was the one Obama appointee not afraid to speak his mind. Appointed to head the Defense Intelligence Agency in April 2012 by Obama, Flynn was forced out two years later for, well, speaking his mind.  Although news reports at the time were circumspect about the reasons for Flynn’s departure, a leaked email from retired Gen. Colin Powell in September 2016 spoke to the sentiments of Obama insiders: “I asked why Flynn got fired. Abusive with staff, didn’t listen, worked against policy, bad management, etc. He has been and was right-wing nutty every [sic] since.”
Flynn, of course, did not get to be a lieutenant general by being a bad and abusive manager. He abruptly became bad and abusive by not being an Obama sycophant, especially on Islamic issues. Nor did Flynn become a target of the Russia collusion conspirators for his presumed right-wing nuttiness.  Flynn almost assuredly became Target Zero for his willingness to expose and undo what Obama considered his signature foreign policy achievement, the Iran nuclear deal. Obama may have suspected that the deal was fatally flawed, but there was one thing he knew, namely that the deal was built on a framework of lies and deceptions.
“The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns,” the oddly incautious Obama foreign policy adviser Ben Rhodes boasted of the Iran con job. “We created an echo chamber. They were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.”  Flynn, by contrast, was saying things that invalidated the Rhodes talking points. In March 2015, while Obama’s people were selling a swooning media the deal’s imagined virtues, Flynn was sharing some inconvenient truths.
“Iran is also a country with ballistic missiles, cyber capabilities. They are also still a state-sponsor of terrorism,” Flynn told Chris Wallace on Fox News. “And here we are dealing with them as though we’re going to give them a carte blanche — I know it will be some number of years to have a nuclear capability. Give me a break!”  Had Flynn remained a nutty outlier restricted to the conservative news ghetto, the Obama crowd could have ignored him. When Flynn moved into Trump’s inner circle, he morphed from nuisance to threat.  On February 26, 2016, the conspirators began their sabotage campaign against Flynn with an article in Yahoo News. The article led the with the seemingly shocking revelation that Trump was “receiving foreign policy advice from a former U.S. military intelligence chief who wants the United States to work more closely with Russia.”
The co-author of that article was one Mark Hosenball. As I detailed in a December 2019 article in American Thinker, Hosenball, wittingly or otherwise, served as the CIA’s chief propagandist in the investigation into the 1996 destruction of TWA Flight 800. I told Hosenball as much in 2003 when I met him at the Newsweek office where he was then working. As the reader might suspect, it was an unpleasant encounter.
In 2016, Hosenball was still apparently carrying water for the intelligence community. Three sources, allegedly “former foreign policy officials in past administrations,” tipped him off to this seemingly ominous news of Flynn’s softness on Russia.  In retrospect, what makes the article suspect is that Russia had not yet become the media’s public enemy number one, let alone the White House’s. In July 2015, for instance, Obama called Russian President Vladimir Putin to thank him for his help securing the Iran nuclear pact.
Obama had reason to be grateful. No foreign leader had more influence over the mullahs than Putin. As Obama told Tom Friedman of the New York Times, “We would have not achieved this agreement had it not been for Russia’s willingness to stick with us and the other P5-Plus members in insisting on a strong deal.”  In July 2015, it was still respectable for an American president to collaborate with Putin. If fact, as even Hosenball acknowledged, other Republican candidates had been criticizing Obama for being “weak in standing up to the Russian leader.” Indeed, Obama had famously mocked Mitt Romney in a 2012 debate for taking the Russian threat seriously.
“Weird” as it may seem, the conspirators at the White House chose to frame Russia in order to frame Flynn. To pull this off, they had to validate Romney’s claim in 2012 that Russia was “our No. 1 geopolitical foe.”
When Romney made this claim during the 2012 foreign policy debate, Obama countered with a scripted zinger: “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for twenty years.” As Washington Post fact checker Glenn Kessler noted at the time, the Obama jab “spawned approving headlines.”  For eight years, the headlines went wherever Obama directed them. Seeing how willing the media were to validate “what we had given them to say” about Russia and Flynn, the conspirators subsequently played the Russia card on Trump. I am sure even Obama was shocked at how well the whole damn thing played out — at least until it didn’t.

Is Hillary ‘Standing By’ Waiting for Biden to Fail?

Enormous Evidence That Coronavirus Originated in Wuhan Lab

Pompeo: “There’s Enormous Evidence”
That Coronavirus Originated in Wuhan Lab

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday morning and backed up President Trump’s statement that he had a “high degree of confidence” that the coronavirus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Host Martha Raddatz referenced a DNI report released this week and played the clip of Trump making the “high degree of confidence” clip before asking Sec. Pompeo if he’d seen anything that gave him a high degree of confidence that the virus originated in that lab. His response:
“Martha, there’s enormous evidence that that’s where this began. We’ve said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outset, but I think the whole world can see now. Remember, China has a history of infecting the world, and they have a history of running substandard laboratories. These are not the first times that we’ve had a world exposed to virus as a result of failures in a Chinese lab.
“And so while the Intelligence Committee continues to do its work, they should continue to do that, verify, so that we are certain. I can tell you that there is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan.”  Raddatz then asked Pompeo if he believed that it was man-made or genetically modified. He stumbled on his first reply, seeming to say that he believed it was man-made, but when Raddatz followed up he said:
“I’ve seen what the intelligence community has said. I have no reason to believe that they got it wrong….
“The Chinese Communist Party had the opportunity to prevent all of the calamity that’s befallen the world..this is an enormous crisis created by the fact that the Chinese Communist Party reverted to form, reverted to the kinds of disinformation, the kinds of concealment that authoritarian regimes do.  “Had those scientists been operating in America, they would have put this out, there would have been an exchange of ideas, and we would have quickly identified the types of things that we needed to do in response. Instead, China behaved like authoritarian regimes do, attempted to conceal and hide and confuse and employed the World Health Organization as a tool to do the same.
“These are the kinds of things that have now presented this enormous crisis and enormous loss of life and tremendous economic cost all across the globe….
I think the whole world is united, understanding that China brought this virus to the world.”
He doesn’t say he believes it wasn’t genetically modified or man-made but simply that he has no reason to believe the experts got it wrong. That may be an important distinction in the future, or he could be saying that because he’s not a virology expert.  Raddatz also asked Pompeo if he thought the virus was purposely released or if it there was an accident in the lab. Pompeo replied that he didn’t have anything to say about that and couldn’t answer because the Chinese Communist Party has refused to cooperate with world health experts.
There must be severe consequences inflicted upon the Chinese Communist Party by the rest of the countries in the world. In my mind, economic shunning would be highly effective, as would banning ownership of anything in the United States by a Chinese citizen, and defaulting on any business debt to a Chinese bank as repayment for damages.

Florida to reopen state parks as governor bashes critics

Florida will begin opening state parks on Monday, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Friday as he encouraged outdoor activity and criticized the doom and gloom some predicted for the state.
DeSantis held a news conference with Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry, who opened up local beaches two weeks ago. The governor was clearly agitated about criticism the state has received from non-Floridians about Curry’s decision, and he said opening parks will be good for people’s health.
“There was a lot of people, not from Florida, but from between (Washington) D.C. and New York, who thought that this was like the most significant thing that has ever happened, that the sky was going to fall. They did misleading pictures, acting like it was Lollapalooza on the beach,” DeSantis said. “This is what they were focused on. Not dirty subway cars, not other things that have been major transmitters of this disease … and people here were mocked
The Republican governor is correct that Florida was mocked. When Curry reopened the beaches, the hashtag #floridamorons began trending on Twitter.
DeSantis stood in front of a kayak and a bicycle while making his announcement, and he downplayed the risk of the virus, saying that exercise makes people healthier, and healthier people are less at risk from dying from the disease.
“Obviously, if you pack in a thousand people and they’re right next to each other and they cough on each other, that’s going to be risky, but when you’re talking about open spaces with appropriate social distancing, that is a very low risk environment. It’s also high reward for the people of Florida,” DeSantis said. “People can go out, they can get sunlight, they can get fresh air. It’s good for peace of mind.”
But he also emphasized social distancing guidelines and said people shouldn’t gather in groups of more than 10.
Eric Edwards, 44, of Orlando, went for a jog on an empty beach in New Smyrna last week and thinks it’s safe. But he worries about reopening other things like gyms and tattoo parlors too quickly.
“I’d rather do things slowly and right the first time,” he said. ”I’m fine with some parks and tennis courts being open. I’m even OK with beaches being open only for exercise.”
Florida has had nearly 35,000 confirmed cases of the virus, resulting in more than 1,300 deaths, according to the state Department of Health. Of those, the Jacksonville area has had about 1,000 cases and 22 deaths. DeSantis noted, though, that there hasn’t been a spike in cases after Jacksonville reopened beaches.
“Has there been some type of major outbreak? No! In fact, cases have declined. They weren’t that high to begin with, but two weeks ago, the county reported 29 new cases,” DeSantis said. “Out of a county of a million people, that’s extremely low. That’s like lunchtime in Queens.”
On the day Duval beaches reopened, there were 29 new cases in the county. That compares to four new cases last Sunday, and 17 new cases on Thursday. DeSantis said that was a sign that reopening beaches wasn’t spreading the disease.
The governor announced earlier in the week that he was lifting restrictions on restaurants and stores, allowing them to reopen at 25% capacity on Monday.
Later Friday, the governor traveled to Pensacola, where he said the state plans to increase testing for the virus and for people who have developed antibodies for the disease. He said Florida’s capacity to test exceeds current demand and he encouraged anyone who wants to be tested to do so.
DeSantis said the state plans to do mobile testing with a recreational vehicle it just acquired.
“We want to drive that around the state of Florida,” he said. “We’ll drive that to where the important points are.”
The state also began naming nursing homes and assisted living facilities where deaths have occurred. Three facilities topped the list with 13 resident deaths. Each also had one staff member succumb to the disease. They were in Suwannee, Pinellas and Manatee counties.

Elementary school kids raising hands to teacher, back view

Many teachers at high risk of coronavirus

New data from the National Center for Education Statistics shows that 29% of traditional public school teachers, 21% of public charter school teachers and 37% of private school teachers are aged 50 or older, indicating that huge numbers of teachers will be at increased risk of developing COVID-19 when schools reopen. Some 92% of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. were of people ages 55 and older, as of April 27, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Researchers at Child Trends comment: “Education administrators who choose to proceed with reopening should coordinate closely with health agencies to enact policies to keep teachers, as well as students, safe.” Miami-Dade Superintendent Alberto Carvalho says his district will provide PPE to staff and that he plans to hire a chief health officer to address health concerns for both teachers and students.

“Decision makers at state departments of education, charter management organizations, and private school administrators responsible for reopening schools should weigh not only the health of their students, but also that of their teachers who are at elevated risk,” a new report from researchers at Child Trends that analyzes the federal data warns. “Education administrators who choose to proceed with reopening should coordinate closely with health agencies to enact policies to keep teachers, as well as students, safe.”

The coronavirus pandemic is exacting a toll on older adults: 92 percent of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. were of people ages 55 and older, as of April 27, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The new federal data on the state of the teaching workforce surfaces as governors in more than 30 states begin relaxing some social distancing policies and in thinking about reopening the economy are weighing how to safely reopen schools.

The current standoff between President Donald Trump, who suggested that governors “seriously consider” reopening schools, and the national teachers unions, whose members say reopening now would be reckless, highlights the inconvenient truth at the heart of the debate around when it’s safe to go back: schools play a pivotal role in reopening the economy, as most parents cannot go back to work unless schools reopen.

The American Federation of Teachers outlined this week a series of actions states and school districts must take before reopening, including ensuring the number of new cases in a state declines for at least 14 consecutive days and establishing the infrastructure and resources to test, trace and isolate new cases. For at-risk teachers, the guidance recommends that educators teach remotely from their homes while children who are physically in the classroom watch under the supervision of school staff.

It’s unclear whether teachers with higher risks of severe disease will even want to return at all, especially given the likelihood of school budget cuts that will force them to do more with less, including in some states where governors are mulling 10% to 20% salary cuts.

Teachers are still working, teaching via distance learning over digital devices, and therefore they’re still being paid. But for school staff that’s been furloughed and collecting unemployment, the decision could be tricky, as some states begin to reopen businesses are warning workers that they will lose benefits if they fail to return to work due to fears of contracting the virus.

As it stands, schools are closed for more than 55 million children across the country. Governors in more than 40 states have ordered schools shuttered for the remainder of the academic year, and only a handful have begun thinking about how and when to reopen schools.

THE HILL – The data is in — stop the panic and end the total isolation

The tragedy of the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be entering the containment phase. Tens of thousands of Americans have died, and Americans are now desperate for sensible policymakers who have the courage to ignore the panic and rely on facts. Leaders must examine accumulated data to see what has actually happened, rather than keep emphasizing hypothetical projections; combine that empirical evidence with fundamental principles of biology established for decades; and then thoughtfully restore the country to function.
Five key facts are being ignored by those calling for continuing the near-total lockdown.

Fact 1: The overwhelming majority of people do not have any significant risk of dying from COVID-19.

The recent Stanford University antibody study now estimates that the fatality rate if infected is likely 0.1 to 0.2 percent, a risk far lower than previous World Health Organization estimates that were 20 to 30 times higher and that motivated isolation policies.
In New York City, an epicenter of the pandemic with more than one-third of all U.S. deaths, the rate of death for people 18 to 45 years old is 0.01 percent, or 11 per 100,000 in the population. On the other hand, people aged 75 and over have a death rate 80 times that. For people under 18 years old, the rate of death is zero per 100,000.
Of all fatal cases in New York state, two-thirds were in patients over 70 years of age; more than 95 percent were over 50 years of age; and about 90 percent of all fatal cases had an underlying illness. Of 6,570 confirmed COVID-19 deaths fully investigated for underlying conditions to date, 6,520, or 99.2 percent, had an underlying illness. If you do not already have an underlying chronic condition, your chances of dying are small, regardless of age. And young adults and children in normal health have almost no risk of any serious illness from COVID-19.

Fact 2: Protecting older, at-risk people eliminates hospital overcrowding.

We can learn about hospital utilization from data from New York City, the hotbed of COVID-19 with more than 34,600 hospitalizations to date. For those under 18 years of age, hospitalization from the virus is 0.01 percent per 100,000 people; for those 18 to 44 years old, hospitalization is 0.1 percent per 100,000. Even for people ages 65 to 74, only 1.7 percent were hospitalized. Of 4,103 confirmed COVID-19 patients with symptoms bad enough to seek medical care, Dr. Leora Horwitz of NYU Medical Center concluded “age is far and away the strongest risk factor for hospitalization.” Even early WHO reports noted that 80 percent of all cases were mild, and more recent studies show a far more widespread rate of infection and lower rate of serious illness. Half of all people testing positive for infection have no symptoms at all. The vast majority of younger, otherwise healthy people do not need significant medical care if they catch this infection.

Fact 3: Vital population immunity is prevented by total isolation policies, prolonging the problem.

We know from decades of medical science that infection itself allows people to generate an immune response — antibodies — so that the infection is controlled throughout the population by “herd immunity.” Indeed, that is the main purpose of widespread immunization in other viral diseases — to assist with population immunity. In this virus, we know that medical care is not even necessary for the vast majority of people who are infected. It is so mild that half of infected people are asymptomatic, shown in early data from the Diamond Princess ship, and then in Iceland and Italy. That has been falsely portrayed as a problem requiring mass isolation. In fact, infected people without severe illness are the immediately available vehicle for establishing widespread immunity. By transmitting the virus to others in the low-risk group who then generate antibodies, they block the network of pathways toward the most vulnerable people, ultimately ending the threat. Extending whole-population isolation would directly prevent that widespread immunity from developing.
Fact 4: People are dying because other medical care is not getting done due to hypothetical projections.
Critical health care for millions of Americans is being ignored and people are dying to accommodate “potential” COVID-19 patients and for fear of spreading the disease. Most states and many hospitals abruptly stopped “nonessential” procedures and surgery. That prevented diagnoses of life-threatening diseases, like cancer screening, biopsies of tumors now undiscovered and potentially deadly brain aneurysms. Treatments, including emergency care, for the most serious illnesses were also missed. Cancer patients deferred chemotherapy. An estimated 80 percent of brain surgery cases were skipped. Acute stroke and heart attack patients missed their only chances for treatment, some dying and many now facing permanent disability.

Fact 5: We have a clearly defined population at risk who can be protected with targeted measures.

The overwhelming evidence all over the world consistently shows that a clearly defined group — older people and others with underlying conditions — is more likely to have a serious illness requiring hospitalization and more likely to die from COVID-19. Knowing that, it is a commonsense, achievable goal to target isolation policy to that group, including strictly monitoring those who interact with them. Nursing home residents, the highest risk, should be the most straightforward to systematically protect from infected people, given that they already live in confined places with highly restricted entry.
The appropriate policy, based on fundamental biology and the evidence already in hand, is to institute a more focused strategy like some outlined in the first place: Strictly protect the known vulnerable, self-isolate the mildly sick and open most workplaces and small businesses with some prudent large-group precautions. This would allow the essential socializing to generate immunity among those with minimal risk of serious consequence, while saving lives, preventing overcrowding of hospitals and limiting the enormous harms compounded by continued total isolation. Let’s stop underemphasizing empirical evidence while instead doubling down on hypothetical models. Facts matter.

From Anonymous;

So Chris gets COVID-19 and decides CNN  will now become the focus of his existence for the world so they can witness his dire suffering. He exclaims his fever..sweats and “complete isolation” AS A RESULT OF HIS QUARANTINE in his home in the basement..For those of you who have witnessed his behavior on CNN…You know exactly what I am referring to ..He put on a real show..sweating in the camera and everything else..Such horror for Chris…hallucinations..all kinds of terrible symptoms ..Even sympathy from his brother…

EXCEPT..HE HAS BEEN LYING…he is  a FRAUD..He was NOT QUARANTINED in his basement as he claims..He was NOT protecting his family..wife and children..Actually, the guy should be under arrest for Child Endangerment. WHY you ask?…because at the height of his infection, good old Chris was out and about not as he claimed, isolated in his basement. He was out and about with his wife..his children,  surveying his property in the Hamptons..YEP..and screaming at some local guy who came riding by on a bicycle and  asked…”Hey, you are Chris have COVID-19..How come you are not home in quarantine?” ..”Why are you outside with with people?”. “You are supposed to be sick”..OH..and this gets better..NO MASK..WHILE HE WAS SICK…AND CONTAGIOUS…and out and about.. ..And he was upset that some local guy even asked such questions.. Actually, the local guy should have called the police to arrest Chris for being a local HEALTH HAZARD…

Chris must be very good friends with George over at  ABC who was walking this dog after testing positive with COVID-19…When you stop and really cannot make up such a fraud…And these frauds want us to believe them on TV..PLEASE..give me a break!..OH..Chris should indeed be arrested for Child Endangerment because he obviously was NOT protecting his wife and kids..His wife acquired the virus…AND SO HAS ONE OF HIS CHILDREN..I have a friend who spent 20 days closed up in his son’s bedroom..never leaving..while he was positive..Sounds just like Chris..that’s  a joke!  If you really want to know who and what Chris Cuomo and CNN are really all it is..they are FRAUDS…CNN actually allows the fraud on TV every night…The biggest frauds on cable news..


Below is from unknown author (thanks Floyd) with whom I agree 100% and then some …..RAB III


Some people have a sickness but  NOT from the (Chinese Communist Party) VIRUS..Give a little thought to this…
This week, oil prices plunged to ..well, they are literally giving it away!. And that plunge in oil  prices could  lead to the loss of more than 65,000 American jobs ..maybe even more.
And guess what, there are DEMOCRATS who are not only thrilled with such devastation in job loss , they are actually celebrating.. Yes, you heard that correctly.. Democrats are celebrating that American’s are losing their jobs..I know..those of you who are Democrats on this “rant list” are going to one American would celebrate the loss of good jobs..But that is simply not the case. AOC and her buddies are simply thrilled that oil is plunging and costing 65,000 American jobs….She wants a train to Hawaii and she figures this is the way to get it..
Responding to the loss of tens-of-thousands  jobs because of the plunge in oil prices she Tweeted she “LOVES TO SEE IT” ..Yep…that is what the lady said..Please keep in mind that if nothing else AOC is indeed consistent..She absolutely loved seeing  25,000 EXCELLENT PAYING AMAZON jobs get flushed down the East River in her “home district” in NYC..Yep..right down the river. So this “starlet” of the Democratic party has now said that she is thrilled when close to 100,000 jobs are going down the river so she can get a train to Hawaii…
And you know what is really, it is not the VIRUS..It is that no one in the MEDIA..NO ONE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY can find the guts to call this very sick lady what she really is…A disgusting example of politics..The left and the Democrats can scream about Donald Trump till the cows come home..Donald is the worst thing that has ever happened to America!..that is what the media and the Democrats scream..every single day..
But we know Donald Trump wants American’s to have their bills..and live without fear…He will do anything to get Americans jobs…And if you want to know what is really sick…Democrats DO NOT REALLY CARE about jobs…They care about POWER and they don’t give a crap how many people do not have jobs if it leads to getting their hands on that power…
Just ask them why…WHY they do not condemn the words and actions of AOC and her crowd… No one in the media or the wonderful Democratic party has said one bad word about her tweet..Anyone! ..Someone…please tell me why the media and her party make her their future..She is the one who is sick and she has infected the Democrats..and they love her..
COVID-19 will pass…AOC and her dreams are going no where and hundreds of thousands of American jobs are going out the window.. There is a vaccine for her sickness…but her party wants none of it..Democrats really do like it when Americans don’t have jobs..if Democrats  felt otherwise..AOC would get a shot of that vaccine..
Added Comment ; Royal Brown III;  conclusion at the end of above commentary:
The reason why Democrats don’t want people to have good paying jobs is so that they will be dependent on Big Government for their livelihood !  In this way the Democrats can control the people.  This is socialism/communism pure and simple. The answer to why Socialist Democrats (that would be all Democrats) don’t want to help the people; don’t want to solve problems is that then they would be out of a job and lose their POWER.
RINO never trumpists also don’t want to actually solve problems for the same reasons which makes them just as evil if not more so than Democrats.  This is why Paul Ryan and 39 other RINOs decided to quit the House rather than run for re-election in 2016 thus helping to bring back the wicked witch of the left coast, Nancy Pelosi as Speaker.   RINOs will offer “shiney objects” like legislation they know will not pass or water down bills in compromise with Democrats only to make their constituents think they are helping when they actually aren’t.
Or in a recent example by accepting a non-quorum “voice vote” in the House on the largest spending  “CARE” Act in modern history fully knowing it was crammed full of Democrat wants not even remotely related to the Chinese Communist Party Virus (coronavirus).
Remember this statement from conservative sage Rush Limbaugh – “We should not ever compromise with Democrats…because they are never satisfied and will always want more.”

I agree with both individuals comments.

This is an important notice of changes that have to be made
to our mutual activities of interest,
The Heartland Herald and We The People.

The last 4-6 weeks have produced dramatic changes across our Country and throughout the world, changes that will likely impact all of our futures.  We have been affected directly by being prevented from publishing the April issue of the Heartland Herald and from holding our weekly We The People meetings.

This is the fifth year (beginning in 2016) that we have published the Herald and gathered in local weekly meetings to discuss the issues of the day.  Our future is uncertain, but in seeking Godly wisdom, I have been impressed with two words: Steadfastness and Perseverance! These are relevant to all of us, but more on these later.

During this difficult time, it has become apparent to us, my wife Cheryl and myself, that I will not be able to continue the things that I have been doing due to health problems and advice of my doctors.  As a result, we reluctantly have made the decision to cease publication of the Heartland Herald at this time and to not schedule or plan any further meetings of We The People.

This was a very difficult decision to make, in particular when we consider all of the many friends and patriots that have supported us.   From the generous sponsors that have purchased advertising in our paper to all those people that have supported us financially with their gifts and support.  To those that have helped in preparation and assembly of each issue, and those that distributed the papers to the many locations in the Greater Highlands County area.  We thank those who have stuffed and mailed subscriptions to more than 20 states across the country.  We thank you all for each special contribution to our mutual effort.

We will never forget these, or the faithful participants in our weekly We The People Meetings as we gathered for food, fellowship and sometimes “intense” discussions of the issues of the day.   We examined and probed many of these issues, and became more informed and better equipped with wisdom to face our world as a result.  Surely this can’t all be over can it?  It seems clear that we are entering what I believe is a new and important time in all of our lives and in the future of our country including facing new challenges to be undertaken.

A New Heartland Herald Newsletter

As some of you know, I have sent out a weekly set of e-mail notes in preparation for the We The People meetings.  It includes my comments about the things going on, as well as a list of links to recommended articles to read, videos to watch, and other news I think you need to know.   I plan to continue to do that by expanding and renaming the email as The Heartland Herald Newsletter by the beginning of May.  In this new world of working from home and communicating on-line, we can still have an impact in this way.  We will still welcome opinions and input from other patriot researchers.

This newsletter will be available to anyone interested in being included in our email list and that includes those who had subscriptions.  If you are not presently on our e-mail list, you can receive the Heartland Herald Newsletter by sending an email to  In addition, if you want a refund of your subscription money, please include that request in your request.

Notes on our new reality

When we consider the significance of what has happened in the shocking shutdown of 180+ countries because of this pandemic; think about what (or who?) could possibly close our schools, our government offices, our businesses, both big and small, and our churches almost overnight and why?  To me the only possible answer is God in Heaven.  And why would He do that?  Because, although He created men with a free will that do any foolish thing they might imagine, His desire was for men to use those choices to fulfill what He intended for mankind. He gave men dominion to make important choices on this earth that can affect everyone.  But we must never forget who is in control or holds mankind responsible for their choices.

We know God’s will through the 10 Commandments and the Bible.  Americans have been further informed by our own Constitution and Bill of Rights that paint a picture of what good choiceS looks like.   Nevertheless, the choices that we have made in the USA and other countries have not been very good.  Whether we like it or not, choices ALWAYS have consequences.  So perhaps we all have been “sent to our rooms” during this shutdown to think about the choices we have made, and determine whether we need to, and are willing to change.  Regardless of what we have chosen, we seem to be in a “time out” to consider our ways.

The Bible that has informed our Constitution and the Constitution itself still remain as the Law of the Land and the basis for God’s justice in America.  Expect to see God’s justice enforced in our near future. God’s message to me for you is to remain steadfast in your beliefs in first principles and persevere in your Christian and conservative views and what you know to be true.  And if you are not believer in a Creator God, this might be a good time to reconsider because He still loves all of His creation and wants everyone to have freedom of the right choice.

When we do something wrong, we can continue on that path or admit it and make the changes necessary.   Christians recognize this as confessing what we’ve done wrong and turning away from that wrong.  So I will confess to you that I was more caught up in trying to grow the Heartland Herald or increasing the attendance at We The People meetings than in doing exactly what God wanted to see done.   So that’s the challenge I have been facing. We all face our own challenges and I hope that we’ll all be able to see clearly and make the good choices we must make to receive God’s best for our individual and our nation’s future.

Continue to take the time to teach others in the truth and help them gain wisdom.  Be careful of negatively confessing,  “Things will never change”.   God is still on His throne and He loves us.  We probably have some difficult times ahead of us and we can either chose to give up, surrender, admit defeat, or we can reinforce each other as we face the anticipated struggle and prayerfully seek God’s strength and wisdom as we go forward.

I hope that you will take time to consider what I have said, then write back to me or call me with your thoughts.   In the meantime, I will be sending out a Heartland Herald Newsletter this coming Thursday and will include you on the list.   If you want to opt out, please let me know.   Please pray us, for our President, our soldiers, all the liberty-minded patriots, and citizens of this world as we face a very challenging future.  God bless you.

From our friend AYNOMYNOUS …
If you have been  watching the news…reading the papers..all you hear over  the past week or so  regarding when we can start to go back to work..or some form of normal …is….”WE NEED TO LISTEN TO THE EXPERTS”…So the question one might think of asking is,  WHY??? We have been listening to the experts for neigh on 3 months..From the famous Dr Fauci in late January…”we have nothing to be concerned about”..Yes…that is “THE MOST FAMOUS EXPERT and he said..”NOTHING”..From the WHO in early Feb, “There is NO HUMAN TO HUMAN TRANSMISSION”…And then we started hearing the complete opposite. ..We got these numbers from ..none other than Dr Fauci..2 million Americans will die!  WOW! Weeks later we began to hear..240,000 will die and 2 to 3 million will get infected…And then we were all blessed with..60 to 80,000 will die..Have to admit, they are getting closer to reality.
Here are some more “tidbits” from the experts. Gov Cuomo was advised by his experts that he needed, desperately needed, at least 60,000 additional hospital beds in NYC..URGENTLY!..Well, as part that assistance, the ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS built  2600 hospital beds in the Javits Center in a matter of days..of which approximately 1000 have been used…Less than half! And they are dismantling the beds built in Central Park as most were not needed…Turns out, Gov Cuomo only needed about 15,000 extra beds in NYC..A lot…but a very long way from 60,000.  Actually..the experts were not even close!…So think..all of this came from..THE EXPERTS…Yes sir..100% of those prophecies and projections came from ..THE EXPERTS..
Let me make a comment to put some of this into perspective ..If any of the people who made these projections had been employed by private industry. And if any of those companies had built their budgets and business plans on those quite sophisticated models…Every single one of those people would have been fired…all of them..And they would never find a another job doing that type of work..NEVER! The failures would haunt them forever. But we are now being told..that moving forward, it is critical that we listen to the EXPERTS!..Better yet..the very same experts who made all those projections!
Exactly why should we be listening to THE EXPERTS?..I really have no clue..NONE. They have failed us at almost every turn. They have led to 22 million Americans being without jobs. They may have taken us into the most serious recession in 75 yrs..They have bungled this in a terrible fashion and yet..WE NEED TO LISTEN TO THEM!…WHY? These people sit in their government jobs, immune to any normal criticism because they are..EXPERTS..I think it is time to stop listening to the experts..These people remind me of the great Nobel Laureate, Paul Krugman..who writes for the NY Times..He is an expert economist..considering so good that he won a NOBEL PRIZE for his wisdom in Economics..And this genius said..and I quote..”The week after Donald Trump is elected, the stock market will crash like the GREAT DEPRESSION and within weeks  we will indeed have a GREAT DEPRESSION”…Why do all these experts get so much  so very, very wrong??..And why do we listen to them?
Our anonymous  writer had a 40 year career in the newspaper industry, and has written several books, his article are to the poing and  as you
will find quite factual.  His comments eill truly make you stop and think.


Thanks go to Tea Party Manatee for this explosive information

Watch Explosive Video: Historian Greg Reese Exposes Bill Gates’ Ties To NAZIs And More

This video is stunning. For example, it shows Dr. Anthony Fauci, who is on the leadership council for the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, saying in 2017, There will be “a surprise outbreak” during the new president’s administration.

It includes Bill Gates saying about mass gatherings…”until we’re widely vaccinated those might come back at all. Watch it to see the connections between the players.

From WND: Todd Starnes Calls on ‘Gun-toting, Bible-clinging Patriots to Rise up’

Democrats hope to tank the economy and take down Trump

“The new unemployment numbers are out, and there’s really no way to butter this biscuit, folks. Unless America’s economic engine is restarted, we will be plunged into a Great Depression.

“Since the global pandemic hit our shores, more than 22 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits.

And the only way to stop this economic death spiral is for every freedom-loving citizen to embrace their constitutional rights, take to the streets and demand that their state leaders reopen this nation.

“As I wrote in “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation,” the time has come for gun-toting, Bible-clinging patriots to rise up with a mighty voice and declare that this great American experiment is worth saving.”…

Read the complete article here:

Very interesting article; I do not know if I would call the Coronavirus a a “HOAX” for sure it is a real virus. it is no worse then the Swine Flu, SARS, or the Common Flu which kills more every year than any other virus.

As the Chairman of  The Highlands Tea Party for going on 10 years,  I personally have never heard of the “Tea Party Command Center”
The original and still very active granddaddy of the Tea Party is the “Tea Party Patriots”

Someone tagging themselves as the “Command Center” gives people the impression they run the tea parties Far from it, we are independent organizations who work in unison with the Tea Party patriots!
This article below was posted by by The Tea Party Command Center.
Why Is The Nation Shut Down?
Why is the country shut down? Donald Trump’s strongest campaign strength is his ability to marshall huge assemblies… The pictures of his gatherings alone are inspiring and MOTIVATING. These rallies serve to motivate and inform millions to vote for the DONALD. The Left knows this and attempted to go toe to toe with him using rallies last election cycle and lost big, … HUGE … as the Donald would put it. With the presumptive nominee being Joe Biden, the left would be nuts to allow him to speak to the public in any forum… He can’t put two paragraphs together without exhibiting serious dementia issues.
The COVID19 virus is a HOAX... it is no more deadly or contagious than the SARS and MERS Pandemics. However, the MSM and holdovers from the Obama Administration are playing the COVED19 virus up as a serious pandemic, in an attempt to destroy the economy. They also want to keep TRUMP INDOORS and away from the visuals of the support that compelled millions to vote for him… in the last election cycle. Restricting the numbers for assemblies keeps Biden from making public appearances, where his battle with dementia is obvious and debilitating. The Democrats can not let Biden out. They need to keep Biden under close wraps and will use taped video sessions and adds, as their centerpiece in his election campaign… CLAIMING BIDEN IS FIT AND THE VIDEO”S ARE NECESSARY DUE TO THE SOCIAL DISTANCING REQUIREMENTS associated with the pandemic. Don’t look for any public debates… if any debates occur, look for the debates to be short and conducted with the candidates at separate locations by video streaming. The Dems will likely insist the questions be approved in advance so they can give Joe the proper answers via teleprompter.
The left keeps changing the rules to return to work... raising the bar and numbers needed to return to normal economic activity. They are rigging the numbers reported as infected; redefining who is reported as infected. The CDC under Dr. Fauci’s direction recently changed the status for reporting he numbers infected from: “CONFIRMED to have COVID19′ to “PROBABLY has COVID19”. Of course, the totals reported as infected jumped and will continue to rise exponentially… based on this change alone. Today, every person tested with flu-like symptoms will be reported as ‘Probably Has COVID19). The Public just saw the numbers of infected zoom with more, much more testing done. However, with the huge increase in numbers tested it should be expected that more infected individuals will be discovered and reported. We will now see the numbers increase again, exponentially, as hundreds of thousands tested have their status changed from “confirmed to probably” infected with COVID19…
Why all this deceitful reporting by Dr. Fauci and his team... too, many disloyal, never Trumpers, and Globalist, on his team. The numbers game is being rigged, to keep everyone confined to their homes, and the economy on the outs… It should be obvious what is happening, but many will simply misunderstand that the left is cooking the books on the numbers needed to safely return to work.
Look there are potentially thousands headed for prison if Pres, Trump gets a second term… thousands more will likely be forced to resign or retire for their collusion in illegal and corrupt acts. The Deep State doesn’t want to see Trump reelected. They are willing to do just about anything to stop him… He had better higher his own security, along with screening the secret service detail on a regular basis. He certainly needs to review all of those in his secret service detail for globalist and leftist ties…
  • The nation is shut down because the NWO pushers realize that President Trump is going to win reelection in November and he’s going to continue dismantling their structures (Central Banks, trade policies, population migrations, slave, drug and human trafficking trades to the point of total destruction …. and he’s going to take their $ Trillions away.  So … they’ve stepped up their plans to create events that will hopefully (in their minds) cascade into the forced creation of their One World Government.  The forced vaccination of the world’s population is another one of their tenets, the confiscation of all private firearms is another.  The elimination of private property, the forced movement of people into living zones and out of natural preservation zones and other policies will be implemented as the OWG gains more power and has more Governors aligned with their edicts.  Consider the undeclared Marshal Law that many Governors have implemented and continuing against the will of the American People. .
    The Big Push is ON.  The Covid flu virus (magnified into a world pandemic) was just the first thrust.  There’s going to be others. THEY are still there and THEY have not given up.  What’s next?….. That’s what I’ve been wondering.  I don’t know.  Maybe an attack on America’s waterways.  Maybe another plague virus (perhaps they have another one ready to go).  Maybe a limited nuclear attack (a suitcase nuke of an American city).  Maybe an EMP.  …… WHEN?  My guess is in a year or two.  They’re not ready for their next one and can’t prevent Trump from winning in November, but also can’t allow America to fully recover from their first plague.  THINK – the Plagues of Egypt.
    If you’re not prepared, START.  And I don’t mean just planting a garden.  I take the contrived pandemic as a warning from God … and in that respect ‘a blessing’.  Ostriches will get run over.  But we CAN win.  I’m expecting to win because ………. Americans don’t know How to lose.


     All comments or views do not necessarily represent the opinions or views of The Highlands Tea party.  This is an election year; there will be articles like this both negative and positive regarding candidates that we will post as the road to 2020 moves forward. ‘The Highlands Tea Party’ does not endorse any candidates, we present them and their views on the issues confronting America, for the education of We The People.  We also present validated articles referencing the candidates stand for or against issues.  The Highlands Tea Party works very hard to validate the material we present, we do not fully rely on articles in the local of national press, which is critically important in the atmosphere of today’s one sided National Press Corps!.
