This story by Joline Gutierrez Krueger really touched my heart this morning. Many Americans know nothing about WW I, even WW II. I do not know at this time if America would ever have the will power of these past generations. I was telling my friend John Caldwell yesterday that I have very strong doubts about the will power of many in this country. Many do not even know what ‘sacrifice’ is! I wish everybody in America would have heard the history I was taught by my Dad and Mom, Grandpa and Grandma, Aunts and Uncle’s and by my school teachers and text books. So many have no idea about the depression, and the sacrifices made during WW I and WW II. We have become a very spoiled and greedy people as a whole. We expect the government to solve all our problems. While I got news for America, there is only one GOD! It is not the government or politician!
Please stop worshiping both!
America! Wake up! You can’t have your cake and eat it (too)
Of course many will not even know what that old saying means, and that is a huge part of the problem!
I pray there is a book written about this brave man. ABQ Journal Story
This report is always on my mind, heart and soul, WAY BEFORE THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC! My Federal Deficit reports are read very seldom, but God says keep reporting on it! This DEEP RED INK is going to catch up with us sooner than later! Evewryday I pray for oure children and grandchildren, there future is in danger because of our greed. My dadddy a WW II Veteran always told me, “Son, leave this world a better place than you found it.” Sorry Dad! So far, not so good!
Such is the fate of all who are greedy, whose unjust gain takes the lives of its possessors. Proverbs 1:19
For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. By craving it, some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10
I have written many stories about the Federal Deficit, we are so broke as a nation. So many of my Republican friends seem not to care about the deficit. Many Republicans used to be a Deficit Hawk
Listen to the talking points of the politicians now running for office….I Hear nothing from them on the Budget Deficit. IT IS BECAUSE IT IS NOT A POPULAR SUBJECT! THERE IS NO GOOD NEWS ON THE FEDERAL BUDGET!
Our financial condition as a Country is all Monopoly money! It is just a game with our future. Congressional Budget Office Report
Not many are talking about this serious issue! Nobody is doing anything about it, haven’t for years and years………GREED!
As I say, I have been sounding the alarm on this for many years! I guess I am old school!
My post from earlier today:
I am thankful more and more are sounding the alarm! I have been speaking and preaching on this for years! WHY DO WE DEAL WITH EVIL CHINA? Why do we allow China to hold us hostage? China is so very evil, we must not deal with Satan! Greed is ruling in this case!

I have been reporting and preaching on this for years, the dangers in dealing with Satan. China is Satanic, why on earth would we deal with them???? Why do we deal with Satan??? We are not to DEAL WITH SATAN! We got greedy as a Country! China mistreats its own people, persecutes Christians, puts Pastors in jail, bombs Churches, and raids Churches. AMERICAN GREED HAS CAUGHT UP WITH US! Will we learn a lesson during this time? See my post below this news release:
Communist China is Our Enemy
So Why Are We Dependent on It for Medicines?
CPDC ‘Virtual Threat Briefing’ Assesses the Implications and Solutions Website Here
WASHINGTON, D.C.—In light of the worldwide coronavirus crisis, U.S. policymakers and media outlets are finally taking to heart warnings about America’s dangerous dependence on China for medicines that Committee on the Present Danger: China (CPDC) member Rosemary Gibson has been sounding for two years.
In the course of a powerful “Virtual Threat Briefing” about coronavirus-2019 sponsored by the Committee yesterday, the co-author of “China Rx: Exposing the Risks of America’s Dependence on China for Medicine” explained how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has used predatory trade practices and has exploited the single-minded focus of American pharmaceutical manufacturers on short-term profits to cause the “collapse” of our indigenous production of generic drugs and the active ingredients for most prescription medications.
Breitbart recently reported that, as a result, an estimated 97% of all antibiotics and 80% of the active pharmaceutical ingredients needed to produce drugs in the United States are either produced in or exported from the PRC. In “China Rx,” Gibson made clear that this arrangement was problematic under the best of circumstances—notably, given Chinese suppliers’ propensity to adulterate what they sell us, including the drugs and APIs they are supplying our patients and other consumers.
Under present circumstances, though, such a dependency can be utterly catastrophic if a hostile regime like China’s decides to withhold such products altogether. Gibson reported that Chinese sources have already signaled an intention to deny us medicines. And, as she noted in an interview on Breitbart’s evening radio show on SiriusXM, there is a precedent: “This is not the first time China has threatened the U.S. government. There was a situation a number of years ago where the Chinese government did threaten the federal government with drug shortages if the U.S. government didn’t do what it wanted.”
In her remarks during the Virtual Threat Briefing, Gibson described welcome executive and legislative branch initiatives aimed at reconstituting at the earliest possible time the manufacture of vital medicines and medical equipment (e.g., masks, sterile gloves and gowns, and ventilators) in this country. Much more needs to be done, however, to translate these initiatives into actual domestic sources of vitally needed drugs and supplies.
Yesterday’s Threat Briefing was moderated by Frank Gaffney, former Assistant Secretary of Defense (acting) and the CPDC’s Vice Chairman. He and Gibson were joined by the following participants:
Dr. Sean Lin, Ph.D., a CPDC member who is a survivor of the Tiananmen Square massacre, Falun Gong practitioner and microbiologist who directed a viral disease laboratory at Walter Reed during his service in the U.S. Army, discussed the nature and provenance of the novel coronavirus-2019. He observed in connection with the latter that—notwithstanding CPP propaganda to the contrary—it first broke out in Wuhan and, therefore, is appropriately described as “the Chinese virus.” Dr. Lin also addressed the enormous contribution to the spread of this pandemic made by the Chinese Communist Party’s efforts to deny and conceal its outbreak. He noted a recently released study by the British University of Southampton that, among other findings, concluded that as much as 95% of the damage done by COVID-19 could have been prevented had the PRC acted when it first learned of the virus (i.e., three weeks before it actually did).
Gordon Chang, world-renowned author, essayist and commentator on China, outlined how recent events, including those arising from the coronavirus pandemic, have shed light on the CCP’s efforts to “take over the world” and “collapse the U.S. economy.” These include its “highly dangerous information campaign” blaming this country for the COVID-19 virus. He underscored the imperative need for the United States to be clear-eyed about the CCP’s hostility toward the United States and its relentless drive to displace this country as the world’s dominant power. He argued that, under the circumstances in which we are seeing Communist China “putting into place all the elements of conflict,” we have no choice but to decouple our economy from China’s.
Brian Kennedy, Chairman of the Committee on the Present Danger: China, former president of the Claremont Institute and president of the American Strategy Group, warned of the “disaster” for our economy, society and polity—outcomes the Chinese Communist Party would welcome—that would eventuate if we are compelled to engage in protracted suspension of business activity and officially directed or voluntarily imposed quarantines of large numbers of Americans. He called to mind this nation’s ingenuity and enterprise and the contribution it can make to adapt, innovate and produce the vaccines, medicines and respirators needed to contend with this disease. Kennedy recommended a commonsensical approach that would enable “as soon as is reasonably possible” a return to work for millions of our countrymen and women under circumstances in which social distancing, robust hygienic practices and protection of the most vulnerable populations can be observed.
In a recent Secure Freedom Minute radio program, Gaffney illuminated many of the points made in yesterday’s Threat Briefing:
“One of the few silver linings to the very dark cloud that is the coronavirus pandemic may be that American businesses, consumers and policymakers are alarmed by our country’s yawning dependence on Communist China for seemingly everything. That includes virtually all of our medicines—a national security, as well as public health, nightmare. Even if deliveries are restored, it’s now obvious that we cannot responsibly trust, let alone rely upon, a hostile power like the Chinese Communist Party for anything we have to have.
“Beijing’s propagandists recently declared that we have no alternative to such dependency and dared the United States to try to free ourselves from it. Google’s former CEO, Eric Schmitt is warning that the federal government must invest to help us do so. So must Wall Street financiers who have been underwriting with our money Chinese competitors and threats.”
My post from Match 12th, 2020:
Listen, it is way overdue that we cut ties with this evil empire and stop relying them for the manufacturing of ingredients that go into our prescription drugs! They can hold us hostage! Why have we allowed this????!!!! Crazy stuff! Dealing with a country that kills and lies is just awful! They kill their own people, they persecute Christians, they blow up churches, lock up pastors!!! And we think we can deal with such evil????? The Bible teaches us you cannot deal with fools! We Americans get to greedy, money hungry and get into these relationships with China, Russia and other evil empires! The leaders of China and Russia are fools. Very evil! Dictator Putin assassinates many of his opponents!
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.
Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.
A fool’s mouth is his ruin, and his lips are a snare to his soul.
