The Soviets Had Planned a Germ War- Russia is probably still working on this

Bob Barney: As I noted in the first story today concerning the American government using its own people as guinea pigs, one can see why we are doing it. Like it or not, the Russians, Iran, North Korea, China, and a host of other nations are doing the same.  The result could be billions dead, as the Bible predicts!

Is life for you about to change forever?

By Bob Barney. first published in May 2019 

Last chanceThe mission of The Plain Truth is to warn the world of the coming events which will change their lives. These are not new warnings, in fact, they are thousands of years old. They can be easily found in the Bible. However, most people do not understand biblical prophecy because they cannot see a connection to today when reading these ancient predictions from people with names like Ezekiel, Micah and Zechariah. The Plain Truth scans world events and tries to connect the dots between biblical forecasts of what God has warned us of, and today's headlines. One of the reasons why most do not understand prophecy is that they are not armed with the keys to understand who the players are in the world today. When we read prophecies concerning nations like Assyria, Ephraim and Edom, we don't recognize those nations today. Once our readers are given these keys and are educated that Assyria is Germany, Edom is Turkey and Ephraim is the United States, then their eyes are opened in understanding that God is talking to us today from the pages of the Bible.

It is important to understand that the United States, Great Britain, Scandinavia, France and most of the nations of Western Europe are actually the lost tribes Israel. Since most prophecies concerns these 10 lost nations, we can then understand that many if not most of these warnings from God were meant for our eyes!

In today's topic, it is important to understand that we may be on the verge of earth shattering events in the next two years which could alter life in the western world as we know it! This is no chicken little warning, in fact, it is a warning from NASA and many of the top scientists of the world! This warning fulfills God's prophecies concerning the destruction of our nation by both natural and man-made events. Please take the time to educate yourself and be prepared for what could be the most life changing event in your lifetime. If you prepare yourself, you can survive what may befall us. If you are not prepared, you will end up like the victims of Katrina or Japan! 



Over and over again, the military has conducted dangerous biowarfare experiments on Americans

If we learn anything from history, it is never trust any government with a free rein. Governments even ours, are dangerous to liberties, life and happiness! We have to ask ourselves some questions. Is Coronavirus 19 a biological weapon being tested by either our side or the Russians or the Chinese or all.  Don't be fooled - read some disturbing history below...

from: Over and over again, the military has conducted dangerous biowarfare experiments on Americans

On September 20, 1950, a US Navy ship just off the coast of San Francisco used a giant hose to spray a cloud of microbes into the air and into the city's famous fog. The military was testing how a biological weapon attack would affect the 800,000 residents of the city.

The people of San Francisco had no idea.

The Navy continued the tests for seven days, potentially causing at least one death. It was one of the first large-scale biological weapon trials that would be conducted under a "germ warfare testing program" that went on for 20 years, from 1949 to 1969. The goal "was to deter [the use of biological weapons] against the United States and its allies and to retaliate if deterrence failed," the government explained later. "Fundamental to the development of a deterrent strategy was the need for a thorough study and analysis of our vulnerability to overt and covert attack."

Of the 239 known tests in that program, San Francisco was notable for two reasons, according to Dr. Leonard Cole, who documented the episode in his book "Clouds of Secrecy: The Army's Germ Warfare Tests Over Populated Areas."

Cole, now the director of the Terror Medicine and Security Program at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, tells Business Insider that this incident was "notable: first, because it was really early in the program ... but also because of the extraordinary coincidence that took place at Stanford Hospital, beginning days after the Army's tests had taken place."

Hospital staff were so shocked at the appearance of a patient infected with a bacteria, Serratia marcescens, that had never been found in the hospital and was rare in the area, that they published an article about it in a medical journal. The patient, Edward Nevin, died after the infection spread to his heart.

Bacillus subtilis, then known as Bacillus globigii, was one pathogen that was used in testing.

S. marcescens was one of the two types of bacteria the Navy ship had sprayed over the Bay Area. It wasn't until the 1970s that Americans, as Cole wrote in the book, "learned that for decades they had been serving as experimental animals for agencies of their government."

When America was truly a Super Power

Buy Bob Barney

1During this latest "crisis" the one thing that the coronavirus has proved to us is that America is no longer a super power. We manufacture very little in this country, as we are finding out in this latest coronavirus episode.  A super power is not a consuming country, but rather a manufacturing country.  This what America was in 1942.  We manufactured for the entire world, we didn't need to import anything.  Today America is a paper tiger, a weak dependent nation - dependant on other nations. God predicted this to Moses about us.  

Yes, it's true,  we can nuke every enemy we have, and that is a deterrent, but in a widespread tactical war against true powers like Russia (someday Germany and Japan again), and China, we would quickly find out how weak we really are.  Superpowers control their destinies. Superpowers make everything they need to go to war, Superpowers do not need trading with enemies to build it's war machine.  Japan, Germany in 1940 saw just what happens when one goes to war without there own natural resources! They lost, and in such a war today, we will as well!  We are as weak today, as Churchill and England were in 1939!   Read these stats:

During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, "We the People of the U.S.A." produced the following:
            22 aircraft carriers
              8 battleships
            48 cruisers
          349 destroyers
          420 destroyer escorts
          203 submarines
            34 million tons of merchant ships
   100,000 fighter aircraft
     98,000 bombers
     24,000 transport aircraft
     58,000 training aircraft
     93,000 tanks
   257,000 artillery pieces
   105,000 mortars
3,000,000 machine guns and
2,500,000 military trucks
 
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately, conquered Japan and Germany.
 
It's worth noting that this all took place in less than half the time the Obama Administration was in place.   With more than twice this amount of time, the Obama Administration couldn't even build a healthcare web site that worked!!!
 
To his credit, Trump has been trying to reverse this, but still at this time, three years into his term, America is still a consuming economy- depending on everyone else in the world to literally survive...    This is what Donald Trump is trying to do for us- MAKE US A TRUE SUPER POWER AGAIN!   It's time America wakes up and supports his efforts to make America Great Again!
 
It’s amazing what America did in those days, let's makes us like this again!

LESSON: U.S. Must Never Rely on a Foreign Country

USA in ProphecyPresident Trump is calling for Republicans and Democrats to unite behind his American independence agenda to defeat the spread of the Chinese coronavirus.

During a Tuesday press conference, Trump detailed the “critical” need for American independence in manufacturing, the energy sector, and territorially at the nation’s borders to stop the coronavirus crisis:

We should never be reliant on a foreign country for the means of our own survival. I think we’ve learned a lot. This crisis has underscored just how critical it is to have strong borders and a robust manufacturing sector. For three years, we’ve embarked on a great national project to secure our immigration system and bring back our manufacturing jobs. We’ve brought back many jobs, record numbers of jobs, and this really shows, this experience shows how important borders are. Without borders, you don’t have a nation. [Emphasis added]

Fear Mongering COVID-19 Epidemiologist Says He Was Wrong

Jim Satney.     SOURCE

image from i2.wp.comEpidemiologist Neil Ferguson who wrote the Imperial College London coronavirus model which was massively shared on social media, including by the New York Times, is now backing down his death toll claims. Ferguson’s death rate model helped shape our temporary shelter down policies.

Originally, Ferguson said that 2.2 million will perish in the United States as a result of coronavirus. He predicted half a million deaths in the U.K. alone. This was if there was no action taken.

But now, Ferguson says the data was skewed. He says that many more people probably have or have had coronavirus, which means his original results are off.

He now says that hospitals in the U.K. will be fine. He’s predicting 20,000 deaths there, or “far fewer.”

“This is a remarkable turn from Neil Ferguson, who led the [Imperial College] authors who warned of 500,000 UK deaths  and who has now himself tested positive for #COVID,” stated former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson. 

“He now says both that the U.K. should have enough ICU beds and that the coronavirus will probably kill under 20,000 people in the U.K.  more than 1/2 of whom would have died by the end of the year in any case [because] they were so old and sick,” he wrote.

Berenson says that fear-mongering media is refusing to cover the story because it doesn’t fit into their apocalyptic coverage.

Berenson continued: “Essentially, what has happened is that estimates of the viruses transmissibility have increased  which implies that many more people have already gotten it than we realize  which in turn implies it is less dangerous.”

“Ferguson now predicts that the epidemic in the U.K. will peak and subside within ‘two to three weeks’  last week’s paper said 18+ months of quarantine would be necessary,” the former reporter highlighted.


Op-Ed: The Feds Really Botched This Whole Coronavirus Thing, So We Should Give Them More Power

From The Parody Site

image from babylonbee.com

This may be a parody, but we think it is actual a great commentary of the stupidity of our leaders and the public who swallows their lies:

I have had it up to here [I am gesturing toward my scarf] with the federal government's slow, inept response to the coronavirus outbreak.

If these incompetent morons only had more power over our lives, just think how great their response would have been. The virus would have been eliminated inside of a day if we just surrendered more of our liberties over to the bloated federal government that I spend all day ranting against.

Just take a look at China: they beat their citizens to death to stop them from spreading the coronavirus. We really need to be more like China if we're going to preserve what America is all about.

It's the final and only solution.


A Real God Predicted Threat, not a media made up one- Volcanos, earthquakes and millions dead

Terrifying book reveals how half a billion people live close to active volcanoes

Marine scientist and science communicator Ellen Prager explores hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and also climate change in her book Dangerous Earth (left). Prager's technique in each chapter is to tell us what is known scientifically and what is as yet unknown.

Just to inform our readers, Christ warned us in Matthew 24 what to look out for.  These threats are real, and someday will shake the earth more and more.

Former British PM wants temporary 'world government'

The cat is out of the bag. The real reason for this so-called pandemic?  A SATAN LED WORLD GOVERNMENT!

WND.COM

Former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown says it's going to take a one-world government to tackle the coronavirus pandemic.

Neb_dream_IMGIt's a two-part problem, the former Labor leader explained: first the medical crises and then the economic shutdown imposed in response.

"This is not something that can be dealt with in one country," Brown told the Guardian newspaper of London.

"There has to be a coordinated global response."

That means at least a temporary form of global government, Brown said.

It should start with a task force of world leaders, health experts and the heads of international groups that would have the "power" to coordinate the response.

 

He explained: "This is first and foremost a medical emergency and there has to be joint action to deal with that. But the more you intervene to deal with the medical emergency, the more you put economies at risk."

While individual countries have their own issues, he said, it would take a task force to "make sure the efforts of central banks were coordinated; take steps to prevent the record flight of capital from emerging market economies; and agree a joint approach to the use of government spending to boost growth," the report said.

Breaking Israel News reported Brown was calling on world leaders to form such a coalition.

Why are the Markets going up and down by thousands? CORRUPTION on Wall Street

This story is not new!  In every crisis, stock manipulators make fortunes with insider trading and price manipulation. This is not new, but it must be curtailed.  Read today's example.... The man should be arrested, and NEVER ALLOWED on a business TV program again!

American hedge fund boss Bill Ackman has made $2.6 billion by betting against the markets just days after stoking fears by saying 'hell is coming' and begging President Donald Trump to shut down the country amid the coronavirus pandemic

American hedge fund boss Bill Ackman has made $2.6 billion by betting against the markets just days after stoking fears by saying 'hell is coming' and begging President Donald Trump to shut down the country amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

The Pershing Square Capital Management hedge fund manager said his firm had made $2.6billion from a one-off bet that the coronavirus outbreak would cause a global market crash.     

His firm seized upon bond market turmoil during the coronavirus crisis in buying 'credit protection on various global investment grade and high-yield credit indices'.

The bet, which was designed to protect Pershing Square Capital Management from falling stock markets triggered by the pandemic, saw his firm make almost 100 times its initial $27million investment.

Neo-Leninist governors and gullible Americans

By Mychal Massie

Coronavirus1The media are not reporting the fact they're fearmongering. They're fomenting and spreading exaggerated rumors of impending doom to raise the specter of fear for the express purpose of manipulating the public. And that by definition is fearmongering.

Saturday morning my wife and I stopped by a friend's deli to pick up an item. My friend had CNN on the television that was typically tuned to a food channel. Predictably, listening to the reporting was like being connected intravenously to depressants. By the time we walked out of the shop, I needed a carafe of Valium with a carafe of Xanax for a chaser. The so-called news was that depressing.

People sit glued to their televisions and radios being subjected to endless regurgitation of projections for infection and death. I believe that network, cable news and talk programs should be prosecuted for fomenting panic and fearmongering with forethought and malicious intent.

CNN has an uninterrupted track record of fallacious reporting. CNN's false reporting from Iraq is second in its unadulterated dishonesty only to President Franklin Roosevelt's coercing American newspapers to falsify the horrors Hitler's Germany was perpetrating upon the Jews.

The complicity between the Roosevelt administration and the American newspapers provided a veil of protection that allowed Hitler to inflict unimagined suffering upon the Jews. (See: CNN: All Lies, All The Time, mychal-massie.com, Sept. 3, 2018.)


In a Time of Madness, Liberty or License?

statue of liberty with us flag in the foreground (Anibal Trejo/Dreamstime)

By Andrew Napolitano

"The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times and under all circumstances." — Ex parte Milligan, U.S. Supreme Court (1866)

During the Civil War, when President Abraham Lincoln thought it expedient to silence those in the northern states who challenged his wartime decisions by incarcerating them in military prisons in the name of public safety, he was rebuked by a unanimous Supreme Court. The essence of the rebuke is that no matter the state of difficulties — whether war or pestilence — the Constitution protects our natural rights, and its provisions are to be upheld when they pinch as well as when they comfort.

This basic principle of American law — our rights can only be interfered with by means of due process — is being put to a severe test today in most American states.

Here is the backstory:

The coronavirus pandemic, which ravaged portions of China and Italy, has arrived in the United States and our central planners have panicked. We do not have a free market here in the healthcare delivery system; rather, we have thousands of pages of regulations and control at the federal, state and local levels.

That control was revealed as manifestly deficient and ignorant when the virus struck.

Israeli virologist tells world leaders to calm unnecessary panic over 'exaggerated' coronavirus

'Most of those infected won't even know it'

The cases of the coronavirus jumped to 9,225 in the US on Wednesday. The number of deaths blamed on the virus is 150 in the US.

The number of estimated deaths from the flu this year, based on numbers from the CDC is 22,000.

Top Israeli virologist Prof. Jihad Bishara, the director of the Infectious Disease Unit at Petah Tikva’s Beilinson Hospital, said this week most people will recover from the coronavirus without even knowing they were sick.

Dr. Bishara said global leaders and the media need to quit pushing panic and calm people down.

It's the New Month, and THE NEW YEAR.

By Bob Barney

New monthTODAY is the Start of the first month of the Year and a countdown to Passover

 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt,  "This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year"

 I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today.  It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God.  To read more about God's Calendar click here .  There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon.  That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.

The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.

Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.

Calendar.1

The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

Evidence of God’s calendar beginning in the Spring is found in the Roman calendar itself and is actually hidden in plain sight.  The Roman calendar has most of its months named after pagan gods or Roman emperors; for example: January honors Janus, the god of beginnings/endings and gateways, and August honors Caesar Augustus). However, only the first 8 months are named this way (January to August).  The last 4 months do not have specific names, but just generic names signifying what the number of month it is: September = 7th month; October = 8th month; November = 9th month; December = 10th month.  When we count backwards from the 7th month of September to when the 1st month must be, we find that it is in March – the Spring.  The existence of the numbered months still in today’s Roman calendar is a leftover from God’s calendar which begins in the Spring.  In the Bible, just as only the 7th day of the week is named while all others are numbered, the only month that is named is the 1st month while all others are numbered (note that the modern Hebrew calendar names the months based from their Babylonian captivity).  So we can clearly see that the first calendar – God’s calendar, began in the Spring and was overlaid with the Roman calendar which began in January, the middle of winter. (source)

God declares that the month of the Abib is the first month of the year, occurring on March 20th.  The month of the Abib sets the course of God’s sacred calendar with the beginning of His holy feast days which are special appointed times for the children of God to observe.  These holy feast days outline the salvation plan of God with the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus as the central focus in all of them.  Abib is when we observe Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread

Happy NEW MONTH & NEW YEAR!


Today is the REAL New Years's Day- What you need to know.

By Bob Barney

New year

Exodus 12:2 "This month is to be the first month of the year for you. 

 I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today.  It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God.  To read more about God's Calendar click here .  There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon.  That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.

When Roman Emperor Julius Caesar declared January 1 as the world’s New Year’s day based on a pagan god named Janus, from which we get our month January. Specifically, Janus was two-faced, a fitting metaphor of the flip-flopping that marked New Year’s day through the centuries.    The emperor thought his deity would be the suitable portal to the new year, as one of his faces looked forward to a new year, the other backward. That’s the sanitized version of New Years. The messy and convoluted history of the January 1 New Year’s observance reveals chronological confusion amid political intrigue, race hatred, and fuzzy math—all in an attempt to improve upon the Biblical calendar as inspired by our Creator.

The Bible however makes it clear that the New Year starts at sunrise in the spring, and is the month that Passover must fall.  “The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, “This month is to be for you the first month, the first
month of your year. Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one for each household” (Ex. 12:1-3).

Notice the Lord tells Moses that the month of Passover (Nisan) is to be “the first month of your year.” The passage is so clear that no one debates what is being said.

In God's real calendar, not the one followed by Jews and many seventh day observers, a New Month is NOT necessarily and most likely does not occur on a "New Moon."  It falls on a solar event, namely the equinox in the spring.

The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.

Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.

Calendar.1

The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.

This marks the last month in God's calendar, and unlike what we do today, although the month is still only 30 days long, there will be 6 extra days left over at the end of this month that just don't count!   Why?

The answer is that the world used to have a rotation of only 360 days, and not the 365 1/4 days that is present today.  The earth's rotation around the sun has slowed down, and to fix this error each year at the end of the 12th month, extra days are added before the 1st month of the year starts.  The 1st month starts on the Spring equinox, and the calendar must stay in perfect harmony.   The extra "no days" was the simple answer. The Egyptians did the same thing!

Can you prove this biblically?   NO, but you can prove that the year is only 360 days long!  Read Revelation for the answer...

A lot of people wonder about the 42 months spoken of in the book of Revelation (11:2; 13:5).   Chapters 11-13 of Revelation contain five references to various periods of time, which I will quote in the order of their appearance in the inspired text. “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months” (11:2). “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth” (11:3). “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days” (12:6). “And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent” (12:14). “And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months” (13:5).

You will notice that in these three chapters, we have the following three temporal terms: 1,260 days, mentioned twice (11:3; 12:6); 42 months, also mentioned twice (11:2; 13:5); a time, times and half a time, mentioned once (12:14).

Let us look carefully at these three temporal periods. First, if we reckon that there are 30 days in a month, how many days are there in 42 months? The answer is 1,260 days! Second, 42 months are how many years? Since there are 12 months in a year, 42 months are 3 ½ years, which is the equivalent of “a time [1], and times [2], and half a time [½]” (12:14), for 1 + 2 + ½ = 3 ½. Thus these three time periods are the same! The 1,260 days are equivalent to 42 months, which are equivalent to 3 ½ years or times.

Is there any indication in Revelation 11-13 that these three time periods are the same and coextensive? Yes. First, in Revelation 11, the 42 months are mentioned in verse 2 and the very next verse refers to the 1,260 days (3). Second, in Revelation 12, the woman or church in her place in the wilderness is fed for 1,260 days (6) and, in a parallel statement, we are informed that the woman in her place in the wilderness is “nourished for a time, and times, and half at time,” that is, 3 ½ times or 3 ½ years (14).

In Revelation 12, the woman brings forth a male who is to rule the nations, Jesus Christ, who ascends to His throne in heaven (5). What happens the woman upon Christ’s ascension to, and reign from, heaven? “And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days” (6). Thus the 1,260 days start upon Christ’s ascension and session at God’s right hand.

Moreover, with Christ’s ascension to His throne, Satan is cast out of heaven (9-10, 13) and persecutes the woman for 3 ½ times or years (13-14). Clearly, the 1,260 days and the 3 ½ years or times start at the same time, namely, with Christ’s enthronement in heaven.

So, if you believe the Bible, God's calendar is plain.  It is comprised of 12--30day months, or 360 days!  Obviously, 5 1/4 days are NOT COUNTED in this calendar!

Happy NEW YEAR!


Happy New Year! Yes March 20th is God's New Year!

New year

No, I haven't lost my calendar and I do know what day this is on the Roman calendar that we follow. Many, if not most do not know it, but today is the beginning of the new year in God's calendar. The year starts in the spring and is comprised up of 12 30 day months. Almost no one understands this fact. The Jewish calendar for example follows a lunar/solar year of only 354 days per year. Every three years they add a 13th month. Sounds nice, but it is not Biblical. They also start their day in the evening. They got this idea of evening days while in Babylon during their captivity, just like our day starts at midnight. We get this day from the pagan Romans. God's day starts in the morning dawn. The easy proof to that is in the first chapter of Genesis. The first day came, then evening, then morning which is called the end of the first day, the second was starting.

Coronavirus Will Be Deadly To Your Liberty

COVID-19 is the healthiest thing to happen to government power in a very long time.

Nothing makes government grow like a crisis. People get scared, politicians respond to that fear with promises that the state will step in and make everything better, and government ends up larger and more powerful. The pandemic of COVID-19 coronavirus threatens a world-wide wave of sickness, but it's the healthiest thing to happen to government power in a very long time. As it leaves government with a rosy glow, however, our freedom will end up more haggard than ever.

"You can look at it as socialized medicine," Rep. Ted Yoho (R–Fla.) said on Tuesdayabout White House proposals to have the federal government foot the bill for uninsured COVID-19 patients. "But in the face of an outbreak, a pandemic, what's your options?"

Yoho isn't the only Republican to have found a new place in his heart for government control of healthcare; obviously, the Trump administration is on-board, too. During Senate testimony, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Robert Kadlec, who coordinates the department's COVID-19 efforts, floated the idea of treating virus patients as disaster victims eligible for federal funds.

What else can you do "in the face of an outbreak, a pandemic" that has, so far, resulted in an estimated 94,000 cases and 3,200 deaths worldwide (though the numbers continue to grow)? You could, I suppose, rely on the same not-yet-entirely government-dominated health system that deals with influenza outbreaks every year. In the 2019-20 flu season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention our long-time viral enemy has, so far, infected 32 million Americans, sent 310,000 to the hospital, and killed 18,000.

1.1You probably know the feeling of having cold symptoms that move from your head into your chest. Many people call this a chest cold. The medical term for it is “acute bronchitis.” Bronchitis is an inflammation (or irritation) of the airways. Airways are the tubes in your lungs that air passes through. They are also called “bronchial tubes.” When these tubes get infected, they swell. Mucus (thick fluid) forms inside them. This narrows the airways, making it harder for you to breathe.

Acute bronchitis is usually caused by the same viruses that cause the common cold or the flu. In these cases, the virus may affect your nose, sinuses, and throat first. Then, the infection travels to your bronchial tubes. A bacterial infection or an irritant in the air (for example, fumes or cigarette smoke) can also cause acute bronchitis.

The early signs of acute bronchitis often seem like the symptoms of a cold. That was the experience my patient Susan had. Susan (not her real name) is a 35-year-old woman. About two weeks before she came in for an office visit, she had started using over-the-counter (OTC) cold medicine and saline nasal spray to treat a stuffy nose, a sore throat, and sinus pressure. Her sinuses had started to feel better, but then she developed the following symptoms:

  • Persistent cough that brought up yellowish-green mucus
  • Chest tightness
  • Difficulty taking deep breaths
  • Wheezing (especially at night when she was lying down)
  • Occasional low-grade fever (under 102°F)

When these symptoms had not gone away after a week, Susan decided to make an appointment to see me.

Looking at Susan’s medical record, I was glad to see that she had come in previously for her yearly flu shot. I could also see that she does not have any lung conditions (for example, asthma) or chronic (ongoing) problems with her immune system. She doesn’t smoke or live with anyone who smokes.

After asking Susan about her symptoms, I gave her a physical examination. I listened closely to her lungs with a stethoscope. I didn’t hear any breathing sounds that might be a sign of pneumonia. Because Susan is otherwise healthy and doesn’t smoke, I didn’t need to order a chest X-ray to look at her lungs.

Most cases of acute bronchitis are caused by a virus, so antibiotics will not help. Antibiotics can only treat bacterial infections. I told Susan that mild cases of acute bronchitis will almost always go away on their own in 7 to 10 days. But I also let her know that she might continue to have a cough for several weeks after the other symptoms went away.

I recommended that Susan try the following simple home treatments to help her feel better in the meantime:

  • Get plenty of rest
  • Use a humidifier or try breathing steam from a hot shower to loosen mucus
  • Drink lots of water to stay hydrated and thin mucus
  • Use extra pillows to prop herself up in bed. This can help ease coughing and chest congestion.
  • Use an over-the-counter (OTC) expectorant called guaifenesin to help break up chest congestion
  • Avoid exposure to secondhand smoke

Even when acute bronchitis is caused by a virus, it’s possible for bacteria to grow in the infected airways. This is called a “secondary bacterial infection.” Your family doctor may treat it with an antibiotic. Signs of a secondary bacterial infection in a person who has acute bronchitis include the following:

  • Continuing to get sicker instead of getting better
  • Coughing up blood
  • Having a high fever (103°F or higher)
  • Having trouble breathing

I told Susan to call me if she had any of these symptoms. If she had contacted me, I would have asked her to come back into the office for a follow-up examination and additional tests, such as a chest x-ray. Fortunately, Susan got better without any complications.

Quick Tip

When I diagnose acute bronchitis in patients who smoke, I talk to them about the importance of quitting. Smoking damages your bronchial tubes and puts you at risk for infection. Smoking also slows down the healing process when you’re sick.


Ron Paul: “People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus 'pandemic’ could be a big hoax"

Former Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul suggested on Monday that Democrats are abusing their power by perpetrating a "coronavirus hoax."

In a column simply titled "The Coronavirus Hoax," Paul warned that fearful people are "willing to give up freedoms for promises that the government will take care of them."

"It is ironic to see the same Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump last month for abuse of power demanding that the Administration grab more power and authority in the name of fighting a virus that thus far has killed less than 100 Americans," Paul wrote, and added, "State and local authoritarians love panic, as well," he continued before singling out U.S. infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci as the "chief fearmonger of the Trump Administration."

Paul continued,

"Fauci is all over the media, serving up outright falsehoods to stir up even more panic. He testified to Congress that the death rate for the coronavirus is ten times that of the seasonal flu, a claim without any scientific basis," Paul wrote. "Over what? A virus that has thus far killed just over 5,000 worldwide and less than 100 in the United States?"

The former GOP presidential candidate concluded: "People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus 'pandemic' could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic."
