Corona Virus proves Trump is correct

On January 31, as the Corona Virus began making the news, Joe Biden said, “We have, right now, a crisis with the Corona Virus. This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia -- hysterical xenophobia -- and fear mongering to lead the way instead of science.”

President Donald John Trump had just imposed travel restrictions on Red China, including the quarantining of travelers returning home.

Closing the border made sense, which of course is why Biden and the rest of his party oppose it. Their hatred of the president has made them dumber than a kid eating a bag of lead chips.

The stock market has had a few bad days because of the Corona Virus. If so many of our top companies did not rely on Red China for parts and components, this strain of flu would be Red China's problem, not ours. But globalism means we no longer control our economic destiny.

The day before President Trump placed common sense restrictions on travel, the New York Times reported, "While officials scramble to contain the crisis — the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency and the State Department issued a 'do not travel' to China advisory — fears over the dangerous outbreak have fueled xenophobia. And the wave of spreading panic has, at times, far outstripped practical concerns."

Thus the Times was more worried about xenophobia than it was about thousands of people dying from a communicable disease. That is the Times track record. In the 1980s it was more worried about homophobia than it was about AIDS; after 9/11 its main concern was Islamophobia.

This reflects the problem with government health organizations because they become politicized. They serve the politicians, not the public. How can we have confidence in Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention? Her brother is Rod Rosenstein, the fellow who authorized the Mueller attempt to overthrow the president.

Nevertheless, this is the world we live in. The United States was able to close off Red China as being surrounded by oceans on two sides serves as a barrier against a virus. Our Mexican and Canadian borders are a concern. The wall along the southern border cannot be built fast enough.

Europe is a mess. Open borders among the 27 EU nations are a catastrophe after the Corona Virus hit Italy.

CNN reported, "Italy has confirmed 322 cases of the virus, the Italian civil protection agency said Tuesday. That's the highest number of Corona Virus infections outside Asia.

"The cases are heavily concentrated in the region of Lombardy where 212 infections have been confirmed. The authorities said Tuesday evening that 11 people have so far died from the virus in the country."

When reporters asked Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte what went wrong, he said, "This is not the time for controversy."

Maybe he can pencil in July 24 from 6 a.m. until 9 a.m. as the time for controversy.

Some people (including Mike Cernovich) want to portray this as President Trump's Katrina. That is true if they mean blaming him for the screwups of local officials such as New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin. By the way, he is serving 10 years in federal prison for being a crook following a conviction under the Obama administration in 2014.

But Hurricane Maria already is President Trump's Katrina, and once again the local officials who screwed it up seem headed to federal prison because they never distributed the relief supplies the Trump administration sent.

Corporations shipped jobs overseas to avoid environmental laws and high labor costs. CEOs generations later now deal with the problems that brought.

Shutting the borders to Red China is not xenophobia. It is self-preservation. Having a self-described germophobe as president turned out to be prudent.
