Dr. Fauci Says Wuhan Virus Was Likely Not Created in Wuhan Lab He Funded with Millions of US Dollars — The Gateway Pundit

A month ago we reported that Chinese Doctor Shi Zhengli was part of a team working on a coronavirus project jointly with US doctors in 2014 before it was shut down by the DHS for being too risky.
After the US research project was shut down, Dr. Shi continued her coronavirus research in Wuhan, China.

Doctor Shi Zhengli from China was part of a team, including Doctor Ralph S. Baric from North Carolina, that published an article in a 2015 edition of Nature Medicine.

In the article they discussed bat coronaviruses that showed potential for human emergence. The article was published in 2015.

This report was published shortly after their project was defunded by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The HHS in 2014 sent a letter to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where they announced they were going to defund the program.

Crisis Leadership: 5 Things TO DO

By Ron Edmondson May 5, 2020

In my last post, I shared 5 things not to do in times of crisis. I am writing this with the leader in mind, but I suspect they may be life applicable regardless of the crisis.

As stated, I began with the negative, because in my experience that’s where most people begin when crisis occurs. (Read: 5 Things NOT To Do In Times of Crisis) We often tend to run in the opposite direction from where we should run. Some of the worst decisions I have observed people make (including me) are during the crisis-mode times of life.

Obviously knowing what to do in these times is equally important. How you respond and what you do will greatly determine future realities after the crisis has subsided.

Here are 5 things TO DO in times of crisis:

Stay. I love Seth Godin’s book “The Dip” where he explains how important it is to know when to quit and that time may come. At the beginning of the crisis is not the time. Until you have been able to evaluate the crisis from every angle and you clearly know there is no way out, stay the course. Godin’s book also talks about how those who succeed learn to push through the hard times. Stay in it long enough to know which time it is for you. I share this from very hard personal experience. We sold a business — walking away simply to start over — and looking back we may have recovered had we suffered through it a little longer.

Stand. Stick to your moral convictions and the vision you have for your life. Don’t allow the crisis to keep you from doing the right things, even if those choices seem to be the quickest solutions. Stand with the moral and personal convictions you had before the crisis began. You’ll be glad you did when the crisis is no longer a crisis.

Glean. Learn from others who have gone through similar crises. Someone else’s past situation may not be identical to yours, but the emotional and decision-making process they went through probably will be. Most people after a crisis can tell you things they wish they had done differently. And, most leaders who have led for any significant period of time have either endured through a crisis or, even if they failed miserably, learned valuable lessons they would do for the next crisis.

Examine. I said in my last post not to do this immediately. We tend as leaders to quickly want to blame someone — mostly ourselves. This is never a helpful process initially, but at some point you’ll need to ascertain how you got in the crisis in the first place. If it was a matter of bad decisions, how can you keep from making those same mistakes again? If you keep finding yourself in the same crisis, shouldn’t that tell you something? Sometimes the answer will simply be because we live in a messed-up world or things were out of our control. Don’t be afraid of that answer, but don’t default to it either. We all make mistakes and we have to own them.

Learn. Allow every crisis to teach you something about God, yourself and others. If you have this ambition and mindset you will be surprised how different your approach to suffering through it and dealing with it emotionally will be. God is always willing to use the hard times to teach us important principles about life, ourselves, and ultimately about Him.

More Coronavirus Fakery: Virginia Officials Pad Their COVID Numbers – Admit to Counting Same Person Three Times if They Received 3 Different Tests

The commonwealth of Virginia saw a surge in coronavirus cases this week after they changed the way they are counting COVID-19 testing. Commonwealth officials announced that if the same person tests positive for coronavirus three times that will count as three separate cases of the virus. Virginia is padding their numbers. Via Dinesh DSouza: More…

United Kingdom Has Highest Covid-19 Death In Europe

Reopening all schools would bring ‘very real risk’ of a second peak, warns Dominic Raab

5 May 2020 The Telegraph

The Foreign Secretary said there would be a phased plan to bring all students back to schools, avoiding a spike in the ‘R’ transmission rate of the virus that could overwhelm the NHS.

Speaking at the daily Downing Street briefing, Mr Raab said the Government is still consulting its scientific advisors on how to open schools again, but they are unlikely to return to full capacity immediately.

“The crucial bit for us is the five tests and the risk of a second spike in relation to any new changes that we would make and that must of course included schools,” he said.

“At least to date the evidence has been that we wouldn’t be able to open up all schools without a very real risk that the R rate – the transmission rate – would rise at such a level that we would risk a second spike.”

The UK now has the highest Covid-19 death toll in Europe totalling 32,375, the latest Office for National Statistics (ONS) data shows.

There were 29,710 deaths involving Covid-19 in England and Wales up to April 24.

In today’s briefing, Mr Raab pointed to new National Cyber Security Centre guidelines for fighting cyber criminals and hostile foreign states during the crisis.

Government scientist Neil Ferguson resigns after breaking lockdown rules to meet his married lover

The scientist whose advice prompted Boris Johnson to lockdown Britain has resigned from his government advisory position as the Telegraph can reveal he broke social distancing rules to meet his married lover.

Professor Neil Ferguson allowed the woman to visit him at home during the lockdown while lecturing the public on the need for strict social distancing to reduce the spread of coronavirus. The woman lives with her husband and their children in another house.

The epidemiologist leads a team at Imperial College London that produced the computer-modelled research prompting the national lockdown, which claimed more than 500,000 Britons would die without it.

Prof Ferguson has frequently taken to the media to support the lockdown and praised the “very intensive social distancing” measures.

Data: The latest figures on care home deaths

At this afternoon’s press conference, Prof Angela McLean said the number of coronavirus deaths in care homes was a “real issue” for the Government.

UK can deal with coronavirus better outside EU, says Gove

Extending the post-Brexit negotiations and remaining under European Union rules could hinder the UK’s efforts to deal with coronavirus, Michael Gove has warned.

The UK and Brussels are currently negotiating a fresh trade agreement via video-telephone conferencing, due to restrictions on movement imposed on both sides of the Channel to stem the spread of Covid-19.

Despite officials in both London and the Belgian capital admitting that the two rounds of formal talks that have taken place so far have seen little progress, Downing Street has consistently refused to extend the deadline beyond December.

Explaining the Government’s rationale for that decision, Mr Gove, the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, told peers that increasing the time available for the talks could hurt the UK’s post-coronavirus recovery, while also stinging the country in the pocket.

The UK is currently in a transition period with the EU, meaning that, while it is no longer a member of the bloc after exiting on January 31, it continues to follow Brussels-set rules until the end of the year.

At this afternoon’s Downing Street briefing, Dominic Raab said an extension would cause more uncertainty than pressing forward.

Domestic violence films could fuel abuse, warns minister

Broadcasting public information films about domestic violence could fuel tensions in abusive homes, a Home Office minister has said.

Baroness Williams of Trafford highlighted the “unintended consequences” as she responded to calls for a TV campaign to raise awareness of the crime, which has increased during the coronavirus lockdown.

There has been a surge in reports of domestic violence since the restrictions came into force as victims have found themselves trapped inside with a violent or controlling partner.

The Government has launched a public awareness campaign, under the hashtag #YouAreNotAlone, aimed at reassuring those affected by domestic abuse that support services remain available during the lockdown.

Pressing the minister, Labour frontbencher Lord Kennedy of Southwark suggested the Government launches a series of public information films.

Lady Williams replied she would “like to avoid… having perpetrators and their victims sitting side by side while such information comes on the television. It might create additional tensions within the home.”

God Remembers Everything

The amazing thing about God is that God remembers everything and still loves us. And we are asked, now, not only to live in recognition of this, but to live out of recognition in relation to others, knowing everything, naming the problems, and still loving.

Would it be possible, in Christian community, to truly name harms done; to talk through changes being made to behaviors; to be united, together, in claiming the truth that sin no longer has a hold on us by refusing to bury it? According to Rigby (2015), “we have the remedy that makes unity possible, even when there have been wrongs among us. We don’t forget sin.  We name it, and repent of it, and forgive each other for it. How do we get back together after overcoming sins against one another so that they don’t keep dividing us?  How do we live together as the one family that we are (warts and all, as they say) instead of as the (pretend) communion of saints who try to look as though we never need to forgive one another because we are so “saintly!”
