Hospital Built by the Army in Seattle Has Not Treated a Single Patient and is Now Being Taken Down

Published

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee announced on Wednesday, April 8, 2020 that he would be returning a field hospital that was built in Seattle’s CenturyLink Field Event Center to the federal government.

The hospital was ostensibly built to help the health care system fend off the Wuhan Virus.

In recent days, Inslee has pointed to more favorable numbers in terms of virus infections in the state. At one point, Washington led the nation in terms of cases and deaths. As of April 8, there were 9,097 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus in Washington, along with 421 deaths.

The University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation even suggested in a recent report that Washington may have reached its peak for Wuhan Virus hospitalizations.

On top of returning the field hospital, Inslee announced on April 5 that he was returning 400 ventilators to the federal government’s national stockpile in order to help other states more impacted by the Wuhan Virus.

In his statement made on April 8, the governor said the move to take down the field hospital will allow the facility to “be deployed to another state facing a more significant need.”

According to Inslee spokesman Mike Faulk, the field hospital never treated a single patient.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan believed that Inslee’s announcement was the right decision, because the region’s hospitals appear to have enough of an infrastructure to handle these cases.

“While Seattle fought hard for these resources, it’s clear other communities are in desperate need of this high-quality medical facility and personnel,” Durkan stated. “This virus knows no borders, and we must care for the sick and vulnerable, regardless of any city, county, or state line.”

This case shows how certain parts of the country are not as impacted by pandemic as others.

Such developments vindicate President Donald Trump’s level-headed approach to addressing the Wuhan Virus pandemic by giving states more leeway in handling the situation.

A one-size-fits-all approach would have resulted in potential abuses of civil liberties and economic power grabs.

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.

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.
