Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., has been suspended from uploading videos to YouTube for seven days and had a video of a speech talking about early treatments to COVID-19 removed by the video-sharing giant.
The video removal and upload ban came after two videos of Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs hearings he led on early experimental treatments to the novel coronavirus, such as hydroxychloroquine and ivermectin.
Johnson told Fox News that “YouTube’s ongoing COVID censorship proves they have accumulated too much unaccountable power.”
“Big Tech and mainstream media believe they are smarter than medical doctors who have devoted their lives to science and use their skills to save lives,” Johnson said. “They have decided there is only one medical viewpoint allowed, and it is the viewpoint dictated by government agencies. How many lives will be lost as a result? How many lives could have been saved with a free exchange of medical ideas?”
“Government-sanctioned censorship of ideas and speech should concern us all,” Johnson added.
I haven’t tried it yet, but I have read that there are a lot of benefits to this tea. Here are three that I repeatedly came across.
It Reduces Water Weight. If you’re feeling bloated dandelion tea may help by increasing urine output and flow. And this will also allow your liver to eliminate toxins.
It Could Promote Liver Health. The role of our liver is to produce bile (which helps enzymes in the body break down fats into fatty acids) and also to filter and detoxify our blood. “The vitamins and nutrients present in dandelions help in cleansing and maintaining the proper functioning of our liver,” says Dr. Ritika Samaddar.
Dandelions are one of the first flowers (or weeds) to appear. The big ones I think are kind of pretty. I guess the thing that most people dislike about them is how they tend to take over a lawn and choke out the grass. But I have heard that they have some benefits. You can make tea out of them.
How to make Dandelion Tea
First, make sure the Dandelions aren’t treated with chemicals.
Wash flowers and leaves, then steep in hot water for 15-20 minutes.
Next blog I will give you a few health benefits to this great flower–weed. Stay tuned.
When I began to think about what I could blog on today, one idea was to write on my uses of clove extract. Well, I thought about it for a while, but then dismissed the thought, thinking it was maybe too trivial. But then, as soon as I put my mask on to go into the gas station to buy a newspaper and a doughnut, as I usually do, my clove idea was suddenly revived. I had earlier dabbed a small tag on my face with a Q-tip soaked with clove extract, and surprisingly, that clove aroma had somehow filled the inside of my mask—and I was feeling good! It was a delightful experience inhaling that aroma. Suddenly, wearing a mask wasn’t half bad.
I don’t know if clove extract will do anything for skin tags, but I can definitely recommend some uses. Here goes:
1. Getting rid of oral lichen planus. A while back I had a case of this skin rash on the inside of my mouth and after a few applications of clove extract (either by dabbing it or as a mouth wash) it went away. When I reported it to my dentist, and he inspected it, he was amazed and congratulated me on thinking of it.
2.A mouth wash. Cloves will kill mouth bacteria and also will give your mouth a fresh and pleasant taste and smell. I just put a few drops in a cup and then add a little water and gargle.
3. Use as a hand wash. If you have a bad smell on your hands and want to quickly get rid of it. Just apply a few drops, add a little water and wash. Your hands will have a good smell for hours.
4. Use as a cologne. Dab some on the face, and arms.
5. For a great mask smell. Apply anywhere on the face before putting on your mask and breath the fresh smell.
6. Use in coffee or tea or any drink. I usually put about three or four drops in my tea in the morning. It adds a great aroma and taste to your palate. And it’s good for you.
Also, here are some health benefits of cloves.
Contains manganese (for brain health) and vitamin K

My VA doctors say I am a type 2 diabetic, so I need to keep my carbs down to at least 150 a day. If I do that I am fine and I feel good. If not, I’m in trouble. Anyway, though its not fun, I find that it help not only my physical being but my spiritual life as well. Suffering in the flesh always helps a Christian. (read 1 Peter 4:1)
ABook I’m Reading
I just started reading Lincoln’s Last Trial, by Dan Abrams. I’m loving it. I’m finding out a lot about Lincoln that I didn’t know before. He was a great lawyer and an honest one. Anyway, it is a great read and I may read more of Dan Abram’s books.
Much of the media places the blame on Donald Trump, and even has called the virus “Trumpvirus.” But let’s get real. China is to blame. It was manufactured in China.
But if we look at it more broadly, I think we can call this virus a plague. And if we recall from the bible, plagues were always brought on people who sinned against God. Therefore, from a biblical perspective, plagues are a result of our sins of disobedience to God, and they are sent from God to punish our sin.
I took the time to do a little bible study. I found the word plague over 50 times in the bible.
In Exodus 11: 1-3 God brought plagues on Egupt for enslaving Israel.
In Lev. 26:2, Nu. 11:33, 14:37, 16:46-50, and 25:9 (and many more ref.), God brought plagues on Israel for sin and disobedience.
In Zech. 14:12-15, Rev. 11:4-7, 16:21, God, in the future, will bring many more unimaginable plagues for the sins of all people.
I find it so interesting that the media is blaming President Trump for the virus, even though we know it came from China. Also, I don’t know what more President Trump could do to prevent it from coming or to slow it down. As early as Jan. 31st he declared the virus a public health emergency and issued a travel ban from China. And he has taken so many more steps to protect Americans: like buying some 500 million respirators, putting in place national guidelines, giving us 2,000 ventilators, restricting nonessential boarder traffic, and much more. How much more can a president do? And he has been doing this at the same time that these George Floyd riots have been going on. No other president could do more.
Donald Trump is not to blame for the coronavirus. And though the virus was hatched in China, they alone cannot carry the blame. No. I think we should put the blame on all sinners, particularly on those who are blatantly disobedient to God. Yes, I think God has released this plague on the entire world because of our disbelief and disobedience. And He has used China to do it.
But there is hope. If we repent and turn to Him, He may stop the plague. No, we humans will not be able to stop it by waring a mask over our faces, or by separating ourselves from each other, or by any other means. The only way to stop it is by our repentance and by prayer—asking Him to save us from our sins and from the virus.
If you remember, in Egypt, when God sent a plague on the land and the people, He spared the Israelites by telling them to put lambs’ blood on their door posts. That blood represented Christ’s blood. And now, if we believe in Him, His blood will save us from our sins—and no plague will come near us (Ex. 12: 13). Though some, even believers will get sick and die from the coronavirus, if they believe in Him and His blood, they will meet Him in heaven and share eternal glory with Him.
9 For you have made the Lord, my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place.
10 No evil will befall you,
Nor will any plague come near your tent.
11 For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.
12 They will bear you up in their hands,
Lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread upon the lion and cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you will trample down.
14 “Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name.
I just happened to stumble on an excellent article, “All about Nuts,” in The Epoch Times. It captured my attention, mainly because of how the walnut was compared to the brain. It said, “Walnuts not only look like bihemispheric ‘brains’ in miniature, they have been scientifically linked to better brain health.”
That’s fascinating to me! God really has a sense of humor doesn’t He. Just imagine God, when He created the walnut, how He thought to make it look like a brain!
The article goes on to say how the walnut is a good source of omega-3, and gallic acid, and vitamin E, etc.; and it gives you good heart health, and is good for blood clotting, and for the immune system, and also for anti-aging.
I have already decided to start eating walnuts on a regular basis—even though they are a little bitter tasting (as I suppose are brains). Maybe I can get a few extra years out of this 70-year-old body of mine. And maybe I can pass over the dementia disease that both of my parents had, God willing.
I feel like a prisoner in my own house—apartment. I woke up this morning with the reality that I was scheduled to go to work—actually, to help a friend paint a room to be used as a church office. My pastor was sort of counting on me to help out. But I feel lousy. I hope I’m not getting the coronavirus. I’m 69 years old and ripe for the virus; old people like me are really suppose to stay home. I didn’t want to do it, but I really felt that I should—that I should text the pastor and tell him that I can’t come, that I wasn’t feeling well. So, I did, and of course he understood. A couple hours later my doctor called me and asked me not to come to my appointment tomorrow if it wasn’t an emergency. I agreed to cancel, and I also talked to her about some of my medical concerns.
Now I feel like I should just obey the President and the experts and stay home. But I’m feeling better and I don’t want too. I’m antsy. Can I really stay here in my apartment for a couple months until, as they say, this coronavirus washes out? I know I can always find things to do, like what I’m doing now, writing. But I like to get out too. I have favorite eating places, coffee shops…and I want to go there. Oh, it’s tough! I don’t think there will be anything wrong with going for a little walk outside. I need the exercise. I think I feel well enough to do that, and I won’t be around anyone…I don’t think. I will pray. I will make this day a day of prayer—for myself, for the country, and for the world.
