I just recently got to know Don Stewart. He has written quite a few books, mainly on bible prophecy and current events. I have been listening to his daily Breaking News podcast. It’s quite informative and I thought I would pass a few of his News tidbits on to you. Most of it is not word for word, but is accurate.
Minneapolis crime wave. Minneapolis city council is alarmed by a surg in crime (assaults, robbery, and homicides) months after voting to defund the police. This is news that is close to me. Though I don’t live in the city, I’m not far from the city limits.
Coronavirus made in a lab. A Dr Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, said that Covid-19 was made in a lab in Wuhan, China; and she has evidence to show it. Recently she has been black listed from Twitter. Apparently, many, especially Chinese people, are quite upset with her for spilling the beans.
AG Barr has made a controversial comment. William Barr said recently that the Nation-wide stay-at-home-orders to prevent the spread of Coronavirus have been the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history other than slavery.Don Stewart made a point especially about many churches not being able to meet. John MacArthur has been in the news a lot lately and has been threatened with fines and even jail time. MacArthur jokingly shrugged it off saying that he always wanted to be involved in a prison ministry. Personally, I think John MacArthur is a bold warrior for the Lord, and I usually always trust what he says in his messages.
Oregon protests and riots have backfired. According to recent polls, two-thirds of Oregon voters disapprove of BLM and protests; and Trump has a higher rating in Oregon than their own governor and mayors. It would be so good for Oregon to get some new, republican leaders installed.
This morning I was attracted by the article in my Pioneer Press entitled “Trump ads target Minnesota, Wisconsin.” This article was doing so well for me, until I came to BIDEN’S ADS RESPOND. The first line which introduces Biden’s response begins like this: “Trump’s false depiction of Biden as a champion…”
What’s wrong with this? What’s wrong is the word “false.” Everything else is okay, but that word ruins the entire article. Why? Because journalists are supposed to report the news, not give their opinions. If there is one thing that turns me off to the media is when a reporter slips in his or her opinion of who is right or wrong. Come on; I just want to read the news. I don’t want your opinion. I can judge that for myself. If you were God or an angel or one of Christ’s apostles, I would gladly welcome your opinion, but you’re not.
I’m not against journalists reporting all the news. But when they tell you who is true or false, that’s bad reporting. The media’s job is to report the news, not tell you who they think is true or false. But I should have known that an article having anything to do with Donald Trump would be slanted toward the negative—because 99.99999 percent of all journalists are Democrat liberals who hate Trump! At least those who work for the Pioneer Press.
Well, anyway, now you know my frustration with reading the newspaper.; and why I prefer to read sports articles instead of the political news section. They just report what is happening in the sports world (unless Trump is mentioned), and some of those sports articles are very interesting to me.
I can’t help thinking that there is something very diabolical going on with the prevention of hydroxychloroquine in the United States. I keep hearing of very good reports from very good doctors and scientists of how good and safe hydroxychloroquine is. Yet, for some reason these reports have been banned from the internet. And also, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the U. S. has clamped down on it, issuing their safety rules, which I find not true. Their June 15 Update states:
Based on ongoing analysis and emerging scientific data, FDA has revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) to use hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat COVID-19 in certain hospitalized patients when a clinical trial is unavailable or participation is not feasible. We made this determination based on recent results from a large, randomized clinical trial in hospitalized patients that found these medicines showed no benefit for decreasing the likelihood of death or speeding recovery. This outcome was consistent with other new data, including those showing the suggested dosing for these medicines are unlikely to kill or inhibit the virus that causes COVID-19. As a result, we determined that the legal criteria for the EUA are no longer met.
That finding is interesting (especially the part which I have put in bold) based on the real evidence, particularly in many African countries where the people have been using hydroxychloroquine for malaria because of so many mosquitoes.
For example, in Uganda where the population is 45, 927, 340 the deaths due to Covid-19 are only 22. That makes the death rate per million at .5.
In Tanzania there are similar numbers. The population there is 59, 956, 393 and the deaths due to covid-19 are 21, making the death rate per million at .4.
But in the United States where we are so careful not to takehydroxychloroquine, our population is 331, 288, 117, and our deaths due to covid are 180, 622, making our death rate per million at 545.
So, we can see that there is quite a big difference. Basically, we can say that those who are taking hydroxychloroquine are not dying and those who are not taking the drug are dying.
What is going on? We see the evidence. We see how hydroxychloroquine is working. So why is hydroxychloroquine purposefully kept from us? Here are three reason:
1. To make Trump look bad. When so many people die this makes Trump look bad. Who ever is in control of the FDA, they are killing people in order to make Trump look bad. But it isn’t just the FDA, it is the Democrats along with the media who are keeping hydroxychloroquine from us.
2. To make money for the drug companies. Hydroxychloroquine is cheap and, in many countries, you can buy it off the counter like candy. Big drug companies know they can make a lot of money on other drugs and vaccines, so they are pushing to get rid of hydroxychloroquine.
3. Evil will reign in the last days. These are the last days, when people will call good evil and evil good.
Though there were, to begin with, somewhat peaceful protests because of the unjustifiable death of George Floyd, it seems apparent now in Minneapolis (and also now in other cities), that outside professional riot groups have come in to stir up riots and looting. President Trump largely blames antifa, but Minnesota officials blame white supremacists.
Well, who ever it is, they are bad. Both groups are evil. Some are saying that white supremacists are conservative Christians. But that is dead wrong. Christians, true Christians are good not evil. True Christians love people—both white and black people. A Christians is a following of Christ. And Christ came to love all people, and He gave His life to save all people. A white supremacist hates all people but his own race. He is totally selfish.
The antifa movement is a militant, left-wing, political activist movement, that hold ideologies such as socialism, communism, etc. I suppose in this case they would be trying to stir up things so as to later point the finger at Trump for failing to act. Or they may be trying to stir up trouble in order to later call on a global government to save the day.
But like I said, they are both evil groups and I don’t think they would have any trouble working together. Evil loves company.
An article by the Los Angeles Times together with the New York Times, in my newspaper, the Saint Paul Pioneer Press, entitled Trump suspends WHO funding, was quite revealing as to where the Media stands. Of course, they present a glowing picture of both China and the WHO (World Health Organization), and a very critical picture of President Trump. No surprise! Let me just highlight a few of their words, and my comments (in Bold).
The article begins by stating…
The suspension threatens to undermine the WHO, the United Nations agency for international public health, as it seeks to coordinate governments in the battle against a pandemic that already has left more than 125,000 people dead in about 200 countries.
Note the use of their words. It says that the WHO “seeks to coordinate governments.” And that the Trump administration “threatens to undermine” them. No. that’s not right. The WHO has sided with a very dishonest and un-transparent government—of China. They conspired with China to hide critical information about Covid-19 so that China wouldn’t get blamed and would look good to the world. The only way they seek to coordinate governments is to spread China’s disinformation to make them look good and to make America look like the villain. And the Trump Administration doesn’t exactly want to undermine them; they want to shut them down—because they are siding with China who is the true villain. I’m not sure what Trump will do, but I agree that we can’t support the WHO, and we also should do whatever we can to persuade other countries not to support them. We need a WHO that will be fair to all and will not give in to corrupt countries like China.
The article goes onto say…
But the announcement [to suspend WHO funding] was consistent with Trump’s efforts to deflect blame for his delay in declaring a national emergency until mid-March…
No, Trump did more than anyone to stop the pandemic. He ordered a travel-ban on China as soon as he knew of the virus threat. And he would have done it sooner if China and the WHO would have been honest and humble enough to admit what had happened—that the virus had begun. Yes, if they had immediately told the world of the spreading of the virus as soon as they knew of it, the covid-19 could have been contained in China. But they covered it up and now they are blaming everything on Trump and making up stories of how it began by our military. That is disgraceful!
Well, wouldn’t you know. The democrats are also protesting against Trump. They will never let a pandemic go to waste. To them, this is just another opportunity to blame Trump for something. Oh, they were “outraged over the suspension of U.S. support for the WHO.” They suggested that “Trump was trying to deflect attention from the laggard federal response to the crisis by blaming a little-known U.N. agency for its operations in China.”
They are 180 degrees wrong. The WHO along with China are entirely to blame, and Trump deserves more praise than anyone for his untiring work. If it wasn’t for our great President, our country and the world would have at least three times as many deaths as we do now. We own him a huge debt of gratitude.
During the Bush (Jr) years I was sort of interested in politics. But I think I was more forced into it by all that was happening in the country—you know, the Twin Towers. So tragic! Everybody was glued to their set, and concerned, and praying. And I was so proud of the President, the way he took charge.
I remained sort of interested in politics during the Obama years, but for a different reason. I was always praying that our people wouldn’t give up in the face of so much corruption in the government. As I witnessed more and more Christians around the world being persecuted and denied help from our countries it drove me to prayer. As I saw Muslims being let in and put in positions of government, my mind turned to bible prophecy—thinking about end times. You know, I just couldn’t believe how our country and the media loved Obama so much when he was doing such terrible things—and how Mrs. Clinton was involved too.
I looked forward to the next election. Anything was better than Obama. The wicked Clinton was running against a dozen Republicans. At first, I was rooting for the Florida Senator, Marco Rubio. By the things he was saying he sounded pretty good. He seemed smart and serious and good for the country. And he is a Christian. A plus! I was also a little interested in the other Bush brother and also Ted Cruz. I noticed that the billionaire Trump was running, but he was way down in the polls. Everybody thought he was a joke—that he wasn’t really a serious candidate. And I thought that way too. I didn’t much care for him—I don’t know why. I think maybe it was all the money he had, and he tended to flaunt it.
Well, toward the end of the election process Mr. Trump rose up in the polls, until it was Trump, Rubio and Cruz. I had a bad feeling that Trump would be the nominee. How could it happen? But I’ve always loved a winner, so I slowly developed a strange attraction to him. I continued to dislike him, but at the same time I grew to like him.
I decided that I was going to study this guy myself instead of just listening to the media. I read articles on the controversy with his business college. Most of it, especially from the media, was negative. But then I slowly was hearing some positive things—people that graduated actually had some good things to say. I began to discover that there were two sides. The Dems and all the media were always negative about him, but I discovered that many people actually liked him. Before long I was on his side and was cheering for him. I read a couple of his books and was more motivated. The one I really liked was The Art of the Deal.
This guy is a great guy! He is smart, a great business man, a great motivator, he gets things done, and he never quits. The thing I was so impressed with in his book is that he was going, going, going all the time. If he wasn’t making deals on the phone, he was out on a job directing workers and motivating them. He has so much energy and he was loving his work. I was amazed at all the buildings he has built—and huge sky scrapers. An amazing man.
And so, I became hooked on Trump. I listened to all the debates and the rallies. I also tuned into Fox news. I don’t have cable so I just get on to the web sites and watch the ten minutes news clips. I do it every day—probably too much. I have been amazed by the contrast between Fox news and other news like CNN. I am convinced that FOX is the best by far—the most truthful. Actually, CNN and MSNBC are a joke. It’s not really news; it’s pure opinion, pure bios and disgusting. But I am amazed by people who tune into it and swear by it—as if it were all true! Of course, they think that FOX is disgusting.
Well, I think I have written enough for this article so I will quite here. Next time I think I will just continue with this topic. I can hardly wait to hear what I have to say. Ha, ha!
