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.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
