CSN Newsletter 4/8/2020 Coronavirus and Hope
From the Editor 4/7/2020
It’s almost impossible to make sense of the flood of news about the coronavirus in the U.S. and around the world, and the effect it is having on our economy. But our writers continue to sift through piles of information, sorting the wheat from the chaff, and looking for the meaning behind the stories.
This week I start with an article about the deeper implications of the pandemic and offer hope that our opposition is weakening while our country is poised for a comeback. Brian Anderson from Def Con News continues with new revelations about the Chinese government and their cover up of the early details of the outbreak.
Our founder, Dennis Jamison, discusses the outbreak from the perspective of the two major religious holidays under way, Passover and Easter. James Harrison talks about our school children missing class and the implications for home schooling.
Michael Lewinski’s message is simple, “get back to work” and get our economy restarted. And Brian Anderson from Def Con News reveals that Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are at it again, now they’re investigating the Trump administration’s efforts to deal with the pandemic, while the pandemic is still under way!
Dr. Robert Owens finishes this week with an inspirational message about hope in these trying times coming from God.
Please take a moment to share your favorite articles from this week with your trusted friends.

Looking to the Deeper Implications of the Coronavirus
by Don Rosenberg 4/7/2020
The coronavirus is probably one of the most serious threats to our country in the last fifty years, not only in terms of thousands of deaths, but the tremendous damage “the cure” is doing to our economy.
Having said that, after lots of study over the last month, I can say that the rumors of our economic deaths are exaggerated. The “corner” is possibly being turned in New York, promising treatments are undergoing trial, and tests are being rolled out to detect the virus to find who’s been infected, recovered, and immune. These all point to an end to our troubles in the near future. Yes, life will be different, but not unmanageable, and our economy will recover.
What is interesting is what we are and will be learning about the people, organizations and countries who have been involved with this pandemic, and what that means for our political future and freedom in general.
In the fog of war, the truth is hard to determine, and countries and organizations are tempted to take advantage of a crisis for their own ends. Their hope is that they won’t be detected, or that the cooperative news media will whitewash their misdeeds.
In More Non-Shocking News: China Lied about Coronavirus Deaths
By Brian Anderson, Courtesy of Def-Con News 4/4/2020
China is a country of 1.4 billion people and the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak but for some reason had very few cases and deaths. They also hid the virus from the World Health Organization for two months and made any whistleblowers disappear. In the least shocking news of the day, China appears to have lied about the number of coronavirus cases the country had. Meanwhile, the U.S. media continues to blame Trump for the coronavirus using Chinese propaganda and the House Democrats are preparing to impeach the President relying on that same communist false information.
Bloomberg, of all sources, broke this story that very few other liberal media outlets have any interest in running:
China has concealed the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in its country, under-reporting both total cases and deaths it’s suffered from the disease, the U.S. intelligence community concluded in a classified report to the White House, according to three U.S. officials.
Political Parallels between Passover and the Pandemic
by Dennis Jamison – 4/7/2020
President Trump has announced to the American people that this period of time, approximately in the next couple of weeks, we are in the most severe period of the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is also interesting, maybe not coincidental, that this period is a time which includes the Jewish celebration of Passover and the Christian celebration of Easter. For those unfamiliar with these religious holidays, in a very common perspective, they both represent celebrations of life over death. It is additionally interesting, and also maybe not so coincidental, that practically the entire world is required to shelter in our homes because of a highly infectious disease that is a highly efficient “killing machine” – quite similar to the “Angel of Death.”
It is undeniable that in this time, America, like the rest of the world, is held captive to a virus that is incredibly contagious, and people are required to obey their respective governments’ manner of effecting mandates to limit the light-speed spread of this strain of the coronavirus. It is better for most people to not be in the Philippines where Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte ordered his police and military to “Shoot them dead,” an order to kill any citizens who defy coronavirus lockdown. Obviously, it is one of the most extreme ways to deal with this disease. Perhaps a way to cure autocratic mayors and governors in the United States, who seek to mandate their own draconian measures, would be to award them with a one-way ticket to the Philippines.
Doing your homework during troubled times.

We are told education is the key to our children’s futures, critical it seems, and, of course the USA has the best system in the world, right? Again, that is what we’ve been told, and what the majority of American’s have been engineered to believe. If you are looking for a new home and you have children, there had better be a “good” school system in the potential community. Amen? But, there has been a change of late.
In the United States, we are now, for use of a better term, under a national “house arrest” as we try to figure out what to do with the mysterious viral threat. Many Americans have died already, thousands of others are assumed to have it, and countless more have lost their jobs over the fear of its potential. Our governors and national leaders have taken draconian measures to make sure we don’t lose one more American to this menace. As a result, our government-run schools have even been shut down. Classrooms are empty, athletic stadiums remain deserted, and there will likely be no traditional high school graduation exercises this year and perhaps, even in coming years.
Get Back to Work
By Michael J. Lewinski 04/05/2020
Logical, rational. and factual information is what the American people need and require. They are not getting it from the mainstream media. Nor are they mostly getting it from social media. What they are getting is misinformation, fake news, and conspiracy theories. This is not healthy for our society.
This state of affairs is going to destroy our society; our economy, our jobs and businesses, our healthcare system, our social relationships and networks, and our political system. It does not have to be this way, however.
We see how Americans are now fighting back. Many are not only searching for truth, but also coming up with amazing solutions to the problems we face.
Pelosi Forms Committee to Investigate Trump’s Coronavirus Response
By Brian Anderson, Courtesy of Def-Con News 4/2/2020
With everything in the country shut down because of the coronavirus, you’d think Nancy Pelosi would at least take a couple of weeks off from trying to oust the duly-elected President of the United States. TDS never sleeps, however, and so the House Speaker has formed a committee to investigate President Trump’s handling of the pandemic.
Fox News was on it:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Thursday she’s creating a new House committee to oversee the coronavirus response that will have subpoena power to seek information from the Trump administration.
Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., will chair the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis. The committee will be bipartisan, she said, with Democrats and GOP members appointed.
Awesome. Isn’t Clyburn the Democrat who said the coronavirus was an opportunity to push through all of their progressive socialist garbage? Why yes, yes, he is. When the Democrats were holding the coronavirus relief package hostage, Clyburn noted, “This is a tremendous opportunity to restructure things to fit our vision.”

My favorite president, Calvin Coolidge, once said, “The business of America is business.” Today during the coronavirus pandemic hysteria, he must be spinning like a top in his grave. Two weeks into our war with an invisible enemy there isn’t any business because we shut down all the businesses and if we want to have any more business we need to open the businesses again or there won’t be any businesses to do any business when we’re finally done riding the pale horse of pestilence and want to once again get some business done.
America’s economy has been the eighth wonder of the world since it first attained lift-off velocity after the Civil War, but if we keep the economy shut for too long, we run the danger of killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. That would be the oft mentioned case of the cure being worse than the disease. At least that’s my two cents. I wonder if anyone is buying what I’m selling? They can if they want, but if they don’t that’s none of my business. In the blink of an eye America the Beautiful has morphed into Apocalyptic America waiting for Mad Max to open the Thunder Dome.
