Emily Green, a reporter based in Mexico City, tweeted on March 12, 2020 about Mexico’s lax response to the Wuhan flu.
She noted, “Mexico’s response to the coronavirus seems to be, we aren’t fucked yet so let’s act like this is no big deal, at which point we really will be fucked and then… scared to imagine what that looks like here. Case in point: major music festival continues this weekend in CDMX.”

John Daniel Davidson, the Political Editor at The Federalist, noted the potential danger of a Wuhan flu outbreak taking place in Mexico.
It's going to seem like there is no Wuhan virus in Mexico until it's completely out of control there. Uncontrolled outbreak is Mexico is something US policymakers need to be thinking about and planning for right now. https://t.co/HV2YawJCl5

Countries like Russia have already closed down their border with China, recognizing the potential danger of having a porous border with a country being rocked by a deadly pandemic.
America will need to wake up to this reality, given its southern neighbor laughable incompetence on practically all fronts of public order.
Is the U.S. a serious country with national interests, or a global shopping mall that Big Capital and foreign oligarchs can pillage as they please?
Time will only tell.
Trump was elected on an America First platform, which stressed border security.
Now, more than ever, he should shut down the border to demonstrate that he is serious about following through with his agenda.
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.
