a) there is no “lag” between positives and deaths b) the wider the gap between positives and deaths, vis a vis: where we are now, the better.
any way you slice it deaths are below epidemic levels and trending lower: CDC data. The Coronavirus (Wuhan Flu) mortality rate in the U.S. has dropped so low that the CDC may soon stop calling the virus an epidemic. The agency admitted 3 Jul that the COVID mortality rate has dropped below the epidemic threshold.
I wonder what Dr. Tozer would think about the churches that are bending over backwards to accept and endorse sin. Would he take special note of the fact that they are “wise in their own eyes?” Makes me think of another voice from years past that said the church’s mission and message is, “carrying the message of the unsearchable riches of the gospel of Christ to the suffering, discouraged, sin-sick souls and to every heart that hungers for cleansing from sin.”
I wish to pose a question about socialists couched in their history and current conduct….
Hitler’s Nazi ism….Socialist. Tried to kill many in pursuit of their perfect world. Lenin and Stalin’s Communism killing to bring the world under their system of government. Mao’s Communism and the many killed and suppressed to maintain that system. Che Gueverra’s Communism and the 14,000 he killed to promote his socialism.
Of the ones listed above who sought to implement by force their Socialist Utopia. There are very many others not mentioned here.
Currently we have….
Venezuela….grinding poverty and killing. Cuba…grinding poverty and nailing of those who oppose the system. BLM calling for killing cops and whites. Admitted Marxists. Antifa calling for killing cops and whites and Capitalists. Admitted Marxists pretending not to be fascists just like Hitler’s Antifa thugs.
Again many are not mentioned here that are still around oppressing their people and others.
Now establishing that I ask…..
When this is pointed out to modern socialists who buy the lie of kumbaya yah pie in the sky uptopian lies that socialists decieve with, the responses are typically from them that socialism failed cause the wrong people were trying to implement it. And that the current present socialists are the right people to do it cause of their good feeling and good intentions. Really? I’m pretty certain the previous examples thought they were the right people in their time to promote Socialism. I’m pretty certain many of them thought they were “good” people with good intentions. Yet in retrospect look how history, genuine history, remembers them.
I think seeing what we are seeing in the news each night about the rioting, destruction, looting and murdering people as acts promoting their movement is a clear cut sign that this is no different that what came before when trying to establish socialism upon us all. By force. The killing and calling for all whites to be killed should be evidence and proof enough that their socialism this time will be no different than the previous attempts to force socialism upon everybody and kill the undesirables like they did before.
This pretty much clinches the fact that socialism is a system of hate, bigotry…and death. Practically all the previous attempts to force it testify to that. And the current crowds rioting and “protesting” also testify to that. I’m certain all these previous attempts saw themselves as good people with good intentions to make a better world. I’m certain they felt good about what they believed to the point they were willing to kill to force it on others.
Many ask how come average Germans did not stop Hitler from coming to power. Look around at what’s happening today. The bullying of Antifa and BLM killing people is no different that Hitler’s Brown Shirts led by Ernst Rohm. And the people did nothing hoping to be left alone and stay out of it.
History repeats itself. Evil prevails when good men do nothing.
The Morning Briefing: Atlanta PD Seems to Suffer Outbreak of ‘Blue Flu’ After Charges Brought in Rayshard Brooks Case
Need a Cop Atlanta? Shoulda Thought About That Earlier.
Police in the United States have been under siege for almost a month now because of one very bad cop in Minneapolis. Men and women who risk their lives every time they go to work are being painted with a broad brush, being portrayed as plagued by systemic racism and routinely abusing power. That, after all, is the justification for all the rioting and looting the last three weeks.
Yes, the are bad cops out there. There are bad people in every profession. Human beings are a messy bunch and some of us are just plain evil. Most of us aren’t though. This collective guilt nonsense that we’re being told we must believe in to be better people is absurd.
Some of the cops out there have been trying to appease the mob, kneeling with them and hoping that they would act a little less lunatic. Others have gone about doing their jobs under very trying circumstances, sometimes running afoul of their civilian overlords.
After charges were filed against the officers involved in the Rayshard Brooks shooting in Atlanta, several members of the police department didn’t seem to be up to coming into work. The exact number of cops who didn’t show has been difficult to determine as the police union won’t admit that it’s actually happening and the media is just hoping this will go away.
There were numerous people on Twitter monitoring police scanners and confirming that the walkout seemed to be extensive.
ATLANTA Ga. (WRBL) – A blue flu appears to be sweeping across the Atlanta Police Department as many officers walked out or did not come to work allegedly protesting murder charges filed against one of their own on Wednesday.
The non-profit group Georgia Law Enforcement shared the following information late Wednesday night on their FB page.
“The head of Atlanta’s police union confirmed Wednesday that officers from the Atlanta Police Department in Zones 3 and 6 walked off the job Wednesday afternoon.
The officers’ anger is understandable to anyone not buying into the current “all cops are evil” narrative. Rayshard Brooks was resisting arrest, then grabbed one of the officer’s taser away from him. The press is basically canonizing him and making it look like the officer who shot him just wanted to take target practice. Even more infuriating, Fulton County DA Paul Howard decided that Brooks and the taser didn’t pose a threat to the officer. This happened just two weeks after Howard charged several cops for using tasers during an arrest, saying that a taser is “considered a deadly weapon under Georgia law.”
That’s right, in the hand of a drunk and disorderly man who’s resisting arrest, the taser isn’t a threat, but it’s a deadly weapon if a cop is holding it.
Could what’s happening in Atlanta be just the beginning of a mass protest by cops around the country, or maybe even a mass exodus? Why would any good cop in one of these liberal-run cities want to stay where he or she is not only underappreciated, but demonized? Any cop near a full pension has no real incentive to stick around this point. Chicago PD’s second in command announced his retirement on Tuesday.
Earlier this month, Buffalo PD’s riot response team resigned after disciplinary action was taken against some of their colleagues. They’re still on the force, but they left the Emergency Response Team without any personnel.
As I explained in the post about the Buffalo PD, I have had dealings with the cops from both sides of the law. I’m not some wild-eyed innocent that thinks there aren’t some problems to be fixed with policing in America. Still, if all of the good cops are going to get lumped in with the occasional bad cop, the willingness to head out every day to a job from which they might not return is bound to wane.
It’s tragic that Rayshard Brooks died, no one wants to see run-ins with the police end that way. On the other hand, every cop who does his job can’t be made an example of to appease an angry mob.
