U.S. Government Could Have Prevented America’s Wuhan Flu Patient Zero from Entering Washington State in Mid-January…. But it Didn’t

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 Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
