Conservative commentator Ilana Mercer brought attention to an interesting article from MSN that was released on March 9, 2020.
She tweeted, “Patient Zero, who likely infected Washington State (and beyond?), arrived from #Wuhanin on Jan. 15 and was tested on Jan 20. If only travel from #China had been stopped earlier, the poor old people from the #LifeCare home might be alive.”

The man who would turn out to be Patient Zero for the Wuhan virus outbreak in the U.S. arrived at an urgent-care clinic in a suburb to north of Seattle on January 19. He had a slightly elevated temperature and was coughing repeatedly after returning four days prior from a family visit to Wuhan, China.
The 35-year-old man saw a U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention alert about the virus and decided to get checked at a clinic. He would put on a mask in the waiting room and had the clinic draw blood from him. The man was instructed to stay in isolation at home.
On January 20, his test came back positive, marking the first confirmed case of the Wuhan virus in the U.S. County health officials were able to identity and locate more than 60 people who had come in contact with the man. None of them, however, developed the virus. By February 21, he made a full recovery. But this was not enough to contain the virus in the area.
As of Sunday, March 8, 2020, the Seattle area had 118 infections and 18 deaths related to the Wuhan virus. This area is considered the American epicenter of the virus.
One has to wonder what would have happened if the Trump administration decided to ban travel from China before January 15. The virus originated in Wuhan in December 2019.
America could have likely mitigated this outbreak if the government had responded more quickly.
The Wuhan virus demonstrates the pitfalls of globalism.
Thanks to open borders, the U.S. and other countries are susceptible to such pandemics given the volume and ease of travel these days.
The religious fanaticism towards open borders is putting nation states on the brink of dysfunction and is causing major social upheavals.
The damage has already been done, but Trump can cushion further blows by taking more proactive measures such as closing the border and halting further flights.
Now is the time for Trump to take nationalist measures that protect the American people. Falling for the false god of the GDP is a sure way to make Trump look weak and ensure that America continues its globalist decay.
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.
