Dr. Fauci: President Trump’s Travel Ban Is What May Save This Country From Becoming Italy

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, claimed in an interview Sunday that President Trump’s travel ban may be a key to America not getting hit as hard by the coronavirus crisis as other nations.

Never forget that while congressional Democrats were singularly focused on impeaching the President in late January as news of the coronavirus spread, Trump was implementing a crucial travel ban blocking visitors from China, the source of the deadly contagion.

This, Fauci believes, may prove critical in keeping America from going down the path of Italy, which has the highest number of cases and deaths resulting from coronavirus in the world.

Praise for the President

Fauci, in a segment with CBS’ “Face the Nation,” expressed optimism that the United States will “not necessarily at all” end up like Italy.

Why? Because of that travel ban Democrats tried to portray as a racist move by the President.

“Early on they [Italy] did not shut out as well the input of infections that originated in China and came to different parts of the world,” the renowned physician who has worked with six different administrations explained.

“One of the things that we did very early and very aggressively, the president put the travel restriction coming from China to the United States and most recently from Europe to the United States because Europe is really the new China,” Fauci continued.

Preventing an Influx

Dr. Fauci went on to explain that the ‘social distancing’ efforts touted by the White House and the restrictions on travel were key to keeping the coronavirus relatively at bay.

“The kinds of mitigation issues that are going on right now, the things that we’re seeing in this country, this physical separation at the same time as we’re preventing an influx of cases coming in,” said Fauci, “I think that’s going to go a long way to preventing us from becoming another Italy.”

It’s a testament to the President’s leadership that he implemented such a travel ban within days of the outbreak spreading, even in the face of impeachment. Even knowing the Democrats would label him a racist for doing so.

Democrats Wanted to Ban the Ban

Despite an unparalleled expert in the field praising the travel ban, Democrats just two weeks ago were actively pushing to end the President’s authority to implement new restrictions.

Rep. Judy Chu (D-CA) alleged such bans “hurt families and hurt our national security, and we must stop this president from overextending his authority and banning people from entire countries.”

“This is no time for Donald Trump’s record of hysteria and xenophobia — hysterical xenophobia — and fearmongering,” Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said the day after Trump’s travel restrictions were imposed.

The resistance party’s reckless partisan politics are an attempt to smear President Trump and will end up costing people their lives.

Coronavirus Spreading: Flights Canceled, Four U.S. States Affected

By David Kamioner | January 29, 2020

Like a sequel to the film “Outbreak,” the Chinese coronavirus is spreading due to airline travel and has the potential to go viral.

There are 100 active cases in Washington state, Illinois, Arizona, and California. 27 states are being closely monitored for the disease. There are 17 countries outside of China that have reported cases.

In China there are 6000 cases that have resulted in 130 deaths. The Chinese government has quarantined 50 million people in 15 cities and villages.

American Airlines, United Airlines, and Delta have all canceled or rescheduled flights to China. British Airways has done the same and a plane bound to Canada from China was diverted to March Air Force Base in California so the passengers could undergo medical testing.

Online, there have actually been those who mistakenly believe Corona beer has something to do with the virus. They would be wrong. It’s Miller.

Ok fine, that’s not true. It’s Coors.

I’m told by Legal the virus has nothing to do with any beer. They are no doubt correct. Thanks guys. My jokes are lame enough without shyster intervention.

In absolutely non-joke data, the Washington Times reported Sunday that an Israeli Intel biological warfare analyst thinks the virus may be linked to a Chinese biowarfare program based in the virus epicenter of Wuhan City, China.

In a further nod to “Outbreak,” the Chinese internet is already rife with rumors that the virus was developed by the U.S. to attack China with germ warfare. The Chinese internet is almost completely controlled by the Chinese government.

Dany Shoham, who served with Israeli Intel, says the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the only publicly acknowledged center of virology in all of China, could have been involved with the coronavirus.

He commented to the Times, ““Certain laboratories in the institute have probably been engaged, in terms of research and development, in Chinese [biological weapons], at least collaterally, yet not as a principal facility of the Chinese BW alignment…In principle, outward virus infiltration might take place either as leakage or as an indoor unnoticed infection of a person that normally went out of the concerned facility.”

The U.S. CDC is closely watching the situation.

Chinese Virus May Have Been Exposed to 21 Students in Virginia

By David Kamioner | January 23, 2020

Like a scene from a classic sci-fi thriller like “The Andromeda Strain,” a fatal Chinese coronavirus that has broken out in the city and province of Wuhan may be present in America.

Inadvertently causing this possible threat are 21 Chinese exchange students from the same province in China.

They were scheduled on Wednesday to attend classes in Falls Church, VA. Multiple media outlets confirm this information.

Fairfax County Public Schools, the students are at Longfellow Middle School, last night decided to bar the students from attending class until February 3rd.

The just-arrived students will instead stay at hotels and visit tourist and cultural sites, which is odd because if they have the virus won’t the chance of contagion be greater at public venues?

At this point, there have not been signs of the virus amongst students or staff. The incubation period is three to 14 days.

The Chinese regime has restricted travel in several cities and suspended public transportation in the Wuhan epicenter of the virus. The government is trying to stop the spread of the pestilence that has killed 17 and sickened 500 and counting.

18 million people are thought to be potentially affected by the spread of the disease, 11 million in Wuhan immediately so.

In a nation like China, where hundreds of millions reside in the close quarters of its teeming cities, that number could grow exponentially to a level that would classify it as a pandemic readily able to surmount national boundaries in a single bound.

Gauden Galea, of the World Health Organization, told The Associated Press, concerning the quarantine of Wuhan, “To my knowledge, trying to contain a city of 11 million people is new to science. It has not been tried before as a public health measure. We cannot at this stage say it will or it won’t work.”

If the peril were to spread outside of Wuhan, perhaps even outside of China and Asia, and successfully jump to the U.S., the public health threat could be grim.

If the virus goes airborne, spread by American travelers from China already back from that country, then a simple visit to a movie theater or a grocery store could act as the accelerant to a health brushfire that could turn into a conflagration making the plot of the film “Outbreak” seem gentle by comparison.

U.S. public health officials are closely monitoring the situation.
