Should you panic over the China virus?

For the sake of all the people in the United States of America, and especially California, I’m annoyed that the Liberal Left’s scare tactics have made it hard to buy toilet paper.

As the China virus scare has turned into a Big-Media-induced panic, people are hoarding disinfectant, bottled water, meat, toilet paper, and more. Because most people are more afraid of what they don’t understand.

Will you think with me? Have you wondered why the Big Media and Democrat politicians are saying don’t gather at large events and don’t even go into a church building?

The ruling Democrats say it’s because you have to protect yourself from the coronavirus (COVID-19). Yet the evidence shows the threat is largely to the elderly and infirmed. As honest investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson reported: “Early American fatalities of the coronavirus are mostly elderly or suffering from health issues.” (As of March 22, the number of U.S. deaths attributed to the COVID-19 virus has risen to 414.)

In contrast, the swine flu from China in 2009-2010 affected U.S. children, young adults, and pregnant mothers the most. But back then, a Democrat named Barack Obama was in the White House, and the Big Media never induced a national panic as they’re doing today.

And what about the annual flu season from October through March each year? Even young children die from the flu, but no kids under 10, anywhere, have died from COVID-19.

In the U.S., the CDC reports that 22,000 to 52,000 Americans have died this flu season. Compare this to the relatively small number of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. — virtually all elderly persons with “underlying health conditions” (and no young children have died). Yet regular flu strains have killed infants.

As for COVID-19’s mortality (fatality) rate, it’s not 3.4% as the World Health Organization previously reported. It’s much more telling when the WHO said, “Most people will have mild disease and get better without needing any special care.”

As the virus traveled to the U.S., the picture on our own soil has become more clear. As the Washington Post reported on March 6, “U.S. health officials on Thursday briefed lawmakers in Congress and said they believe the case fatality rate in this country will most likely be in the range of 0.1 to 1.0 percent.”

The concern is the COVID-19 virus is spreading faster than most viruses we know, and its mortality (death) rate is higher that common flu, which has U.S. mortality rate of 0.095%, just under 0.1%. (China’s death rate was likely higher because 50% of China men are regular smokers). Yet, for anyone who’s elderly, sickly, or immunocompromised, if you are “taken down” by COVID-19, hospitals in the U.S. are quickly becoming equipped to apply life-saving techniques.

So this doesn’t merit sending the general public into a panic. In the U.S., COVID-19 has only killed sickly elderly persons — those with lung disease, heart disease, or diabetes. As CNN reported, of the Americans who died from COVID-19, “most of them were 60 years and older,” “many lived in nursing homes and other facilities,” and “many had other health problems.”

Here’s what we can all do. To protect yourself against most contagious infections (beginning with the common cold), you have to practice good hygiene by frequently washing your hands, not touching your face, and wearing gloves or using other methods to avoid picking up “ick” from a door handle. And, of course, take your vitamins (including Vitamin D) and supplements, get your daily sunshine (the best Vitamin D3), and try to get adequate sleep. You know the drill.

Given what we know, most people have less chance of their health being harmed by COVID-19 than by the regular flu or swine flu. But the Big Media and the “never let a crisis go to waste” Democrat politicians aren’t telling you that, are they?

Chick-fil-A sells you out

Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy Sells Out – Heeds Advice of ‘Gay’ Activist to Retreat on Pro-Natural-Marriage Advocacy

11/27/19 update: Chick-fil-a donated to Southern Poverty Law Group (SPLC), a top hater of U.S. Christian values, in 2017, in addition to funding other anti-family groups. Documentation: Townhall | The Federalist

Are you disturbed by how Chick-fil-A will no longer donate to Christian organizations that oppose the unnatural, unhealthy, tyrannical, unbiblical “LGBTQIA+” agenda?

I’m sad about it too. But I’m not shocked, because I saw this coming.

You see, in 2012, which is the same year that more than a million pro-family Americans showed up at local Chick-fil-A’s to support the outspoken man-woman marriage virtues of Chick-fil-A’s “Christian” CEO Dan Cathy, this mild-mannered heir to his father’s restaurant business quietly met with a homosexual activist, who “helped” the fast-food giant play “nice” and redefine “love” as going silent about people’s sins.

This happened the very same year that SaveCalifornia.com followed Mike Huckabee’s call for “Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day” and urged all our consitutents to spend money at Chick-fil-A, and in the process produced an exciting 10-minute SaveCalifornia.com video to promote Chick-fil-A’s (at the time) Christian values.

Sadly, it took less than six years for Chick-fil-A to totally sell out by siding with homosexual and transsexual activists against the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, all because the tyrannical “LGBTQIA+” mob had labeled SA and FCA “anti-LGBT” organizations.

I’m not alone in my sadness about Chick-fil-A siding with evil against good. Joining me in blasting Chick-fil-A for rejecting biblical and family values and instead advancing the “LGBTQIA+” agenda are national pro-family leaders, including the founder of the August 1, 2012 “National Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” Mike Huckabee, Focus on the Family president Jim Daly, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins, Liberty Counsel chairman Mat Staver, American Family Association president Tim Wildmon, Christian radio talk host Janet Mefferd, Christian blogger Matt Walsh, and Christian apologist Michael Brown, among others.

For the love of God and to love people, they’re correctly rebuking Chick-fil-A for claiming to be “Christian,” but caving to “LGBTQIA+” activists, while selling out biblical Christian ministries and instead funding pro-“LGBT” organizations, such as “Covenant House.” (See the evidence)

For this reason, it is love for all moral conservatives to rebuke and shun Chick-fil-A. Because Chick-fil-A’s new policy PUNISHES Christianity, we must do what we can to remind everyone that moral speech is free speech and religious freedom that is enshired in our U.S. Constitution.

I mean, do you want Chick-fil-A to prosper in its message and example of trampling Christian values? And do you want want Chick-fil-A to snuff out the Gospel message of repenting of sins and what sexual sins include? Every person who believes in God’s Word should say “absolutely not!”

Here are just some of the the loving outcomes if lots of people with moral values avoided Chick-fil-A:

  1. People learn to not support evil policies.
  2. Christians, especially, learn that loving Jesus Christ is to not partner with evil.
  3. Children, especially, learn that it is evil to oppose the Bible and religious freedom.
  4. Christians, especially, learn to act upon their values.
  5. Other businesses, seeing how Chick-fil-A is losing, not gaining, customers, will be more likely to tolerate Christian values instead of punishing Christian values.
  6. Homosexuality and transsexuality are not promoted as much, resulting in more respect for religious freedom and fewer children being damaged.
  7. Constitutional religious freedom (loyalty to God) is promoted more in our land.

Bottom line, it’s healthier when we avoid fast food, and America will get better, not worse, if Christians and other moral conservatives cling to what’s right and shirk what’s wrong. As for me, I’m sticking with the Bible and telling Chick-fil-A to take a hike. “No mor” of their chicken for me.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Romans 1:26-27

It’s about to hit the fan, but we’re on it

Friday, November 1, 2019, 5:28 pm | Randy Thomasson

A lot is about to “hit the fan,” starting in January 2020. Bad new laws affecting families. Bad new curriculum indoctrinating children. And bad new policies impacting all Californians.

Yes, you can blame the Democrat politicians, who rule the roost in Sacramento. But what will you and I do about it? And how can we, together, love our neighbor — specifically, children and their parents, grandparents, property owners, and voters?

Here’s what’s coming your way, and why we must jump into action:

1. Disgusting new sexual indoctrination curriculum for kids in K-12 public schools. The perverse brainwashing and gross practices of the “California Healthy Youth Act” will sexually indoctrinate children like never before.

This year, the Democrat-run State Board of Education approved “guidelines” for all school districts. So you can expect this to ramp up come January. We need to be ready!

Here’s the big problem: Under the cloak of teaching (but really, forcing) children as young as kindergarten “to develop healthy attitudes concerning adolescent growth and development, body image, gender, sexual orientation, relationships, marriage, and family,” and “to promote understanding of sexuality as a normal part of human development,” AB 329 has quickly morphed into teaching kids that virtually anything and everything goes.

The sexual anarchy in this devilish curriculum guidelines now includes positive teaching about (and I’m going to write in code):

s_x toys
lub_ic_nts
mas_urb_tion
an_l s_x
bond_ge and sad_mas_ch_sm
especially related to “sexual orientation,” “gender identity,” and “gender expression”

From my read, AB 329 and its applicable curriculum teaches children a new amoral ethic: “You can have as much sexual contact as you want, involving pleasure or pain, with any number of people, in any number of ways, as long as it’s consensual.”

That’s the bad news of what boys and girls will get under the misnamed “California Healthy Youth Act.” And, of course, children won’t be told about any negative health consequences. But since kids can’t look away, neither should we.

Yet in light of this terrible attack upon children’s minds, one thing is clear — we must do what we can to help rescue kids by reaching and activating parents and grandparents!

With your generous gift today, SaveCalifornia.com can inform California families by building a new online center that exposes this awful new curriculum threatening precious children.

This is why I invite you to fight the good fight with SaveCalifornia.com. With your good-hearted help, SaveCalifornia.com will build a new online center that exposes this awful new curriculum targeting children. From here, we will do creative outreaches to alert and convince as many fathers and mothers as we can.

And what else is coming your way?

2. A boatload of very bad new laws imposed by the ruling Democrat politicians. Gavin Newsom and the Democrat-controlled California State Legislature are handing out abortion pills to college girls and telling boys to be “girls” and girls to be “boys.” And Newsom and the Democrats are awarding the rights of citizens to illegal aliens, threatening the rights of law-abiding gun owners, and trampling the choices of independent contractors. Along with many other bad laws grinding down our way of life.

Fortunately, with technology, we can work to get around the biased Big Media, which want to keep folks in the dark. Instead, we’ll reach and inform people with facts and evidence.

With your helpful donation today, SaveCalifornia.com will launch a bold new campaign reporting to voters what they get with the Democrats. It’s about time, don’t you think?

So I ask you, will you fight the good fight of faith alongside me and SaveCalifornia.com? Since 1999, we’ve been working, leading, and fighting for God’s best for children and families. Your generous gift today will help us reach parents and voters who desperately need to know the truth.

And with just two months until bad new laws go into effect and new curriculum begins to hit local government schools, we have a lot to do in a short time.

Now that you know the bad news and our plan to resist it, will you exercise your values and stand with me and SaveCalifornia.com? You can contribute instantly and securely on our special “Fight the Good Fight” donate page: https://securedonors.com/savecalifornia+fightthegoodfight

Your kind gift today of $20, $35, $50, $100, $200, or $500 or more will help jump-start this needful campaign. Then you and I can reach, awaken, and activate many pro-family Californians and other reasonable people who are already concerned.
