Presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden criticized President Donald Trump for allegedly cutting health programs during the coronavirus outbreak in China. This virus is now spreading into America.
“We have, right now, a crisis with the coronavirus,” Biden said in Iowa last Friday, January 31, 2020. “This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia – hysterical xenophobia – and fearmongering to lead the way instead of science.”
The former vice president accused the president of hindering the progress on global health oversight that the Obama administration was able to make.
Biden pointed to “draconian cuts” to the budgets of certain agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
The Trump campaign responded to Biden’s comments, telling Reuters the president “is listening to medical and scientific experts and taking every responsible precaution to protect the American people.”
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the Trump administration declared a public health emergency. This outbreak has infected nearly 10,000 people worldwide. Most of the cases of the coronavirus have been confined to China. However, twelve individuals in six countries have caught the virus without even traveling to China.
So far, the CDC has identified six cases of the coronavirus in America.
China is clearly not in its best shape.
Additionally, this latest virus demonstrates how rickety its health infrastructure is and why the U.S. should start considering more restrictionist migration policies with the country.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
