From time to time, I like to promote the Combat Veterans for Congress (CVFC) political action committee because their cause is righteous. CVFC PAC is dedicated to supporting the election of fiscally conservative Combat Veterans For Congress. The PAC seeks to elect combat veterans to Congress who believe in limited government, will rein in the out of control spending of Congress, are committed to preserving and defending the U.S. Constitution, and will support the independence and freedom of the individual as outlined in the Bill of Rights.
Here is a recent timely editorial by the PAC chairman, CAPT Joe John, USN (Ret’d), provided here with permission, that puts the lie to Democrat-media complex claims that there is no plan to defeat the ChiCom virus:
In the first Presidential debate, Joe Biden continued to repeat the lie that President Trump did not have a plan to defeat the Communist Chinese COVID-19 Virus. That lie has been another attempt by Biden, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, and the left of center liberal Main Stream Media establishment to mislead the American voters about President Trump’s many successes on multiple fronts.
Over the last 9 months, President Trump took the COVID-19 threat very seriously and developed a very aggressive plan of action to assemble the most knowledgeable scientists and doctors in infectious diseases in the United States, in order to develop measures to protect America’s population from infection, to develop therapeutic medical treatments for COVID-19, and to develop a vaccine to protect the American population from the Communist Chinese pandemic.
Prior to and during the second Presidential debate, President Trump should outline the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force’s successes in protecting the American people from COVID-19. For the last 9 months, President Trump listened to and followed the ever-changing advice of the most experienced and knowledgeable scientists and medical doctors in infectious disease in the United States who are members of the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force.
During that period, the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force had been involved in the standard scientific trial and error research procedures that all scientists involved in research must do on a regular basis in order to learn through trial and error about how to combat the Chinese Communist COVID-19 virus and develop treatments for infected patients.
Communist China would not allow US scientists and doctors to travel to the location where the COVID-19 pandemic was first detected. US researchers were prevented from meeting with the scientists and doctors at the Wuhan Lab in Wuhan, China, so they could to investigate specific details about the Communist Chinese COVID-19 virus. The goal of having the meeting in Wuhan, China, was to be able to benefit from the knowledge the Chinese Communist scientists had in order to speed up the treatment of infected patients and how to better develop a vaccine to protect the population of the United States from COVID-19. The Chinese Communist prevented that from happening.
The below listed 10 items summarize the timeline and what was done over the last 9 months by the most knowledgeable US scientists and doctors in infectious disease research who are assigned to the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force. America’s outstanding research team, led by President Trump, also include military logistic experts and executives from many major corporations who were mobilized to manufacture products required by the Task Force to heal infected patients and develop a vaccine to overcome Communist China’s COVID-19 virus that infected the United States and 180 nations worldwide.
- The first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in the USA on January 20, 2020.
- On 30 January 2020, President Trump appointed and convened the first meeting of the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force led by Vice President Pence.
- The best and most capable scientists and doctors experienced in infectious disease in the United State were appointed to the Task Force by President Trump, including Dr. Fauci of the NIH, Dr. Birx of the NIH, Dr. Redfield of the CDC, and Dr. Adams in charge of the Public Health Service, the most experienced Military Generals in the US Armed Forces experienced in the rapid supply of logistics, the executives of many major corporations, and hundreds of other scientists and doctors who have been supporting the goals of the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force.
- Against the advice of the leading scientists, President Trump banned travel to and from China on 31 January 2020. Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer criticized the President and said he was a racist. Pelosi encouraged groups of Californians to join her to wander through San Francisco’s China Town. NYC Mayor de Blasio’s staff encouraged New Yorkers to wander through NYC China Town to demonstrate that they weren’t racists. Dr. Fauci, Dr. Brix, and all the experts on the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force did not agree with the travel bans. President Trump did it anyway, and ultimately, they stated that the travel ban may have saved 2 million American lives.
- The President banned all travel to and from Europe on 14 March 2020, and again President Trump was criticized by Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer for being a racist.
- On the advice of the scientists and medical experts on the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force and against the President’s better judgement because the US economy was the best US economy in history, the President shut down the economy of the United States on 16 March 2020. That action put over 50 million Americans out of work. The Secretary of the Treasury worked with Congress to provide many financial benefits for businesses and unemployed Americans with a $2 billion dollar stimulus package in order to save thousands of businesses and provide continued income for millions of families. The attempt by the President to provide a follow-on stimulus package of $1 billion for the American people was frustrated because Pelosi insisted on a $3 billion package, much of which had nothing to do with the pandemic.
- On 27 March 2020, the need became apparent for respirators, and because the Obama Administration left the cupboards bare with no respirators available, President Trump activated and instituted the Defense Production Act followed by an immediate order to General Motors to start producing respirators. Now the US has such an excess of respirators that it is now supplying the world with respirators. President Trump went on to use the Defense Production Act to produce Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for the US since Communist China was the primary supplier of PPE and made a veiled threat to cut back supplies. At the same time, therapeutics were being developed to treat infected patients, and the Task Force warned all Americans to keep safe distances from each other, to wear masks, and often wash hands with warm soapy water.
- The President dispatched the two US Navy Hospital Ships to New York and Los Angeles to mobilize medical support on both coasts of the US. He also mobilized the US military to erect US Army Field Hospitals to multiple sites around the US to ensure that there were plenty of beds for COVID-19 cases.
- Scientific research went into overdrive on how to increase the numbers of COVID-19 testing sites and improve the speed of testing results for Americans in order to determine positive tests of COVID-19 patients. To date 90+ million tests have been done in the US, with over 2 million tests currently being done per day. The attempt to increase the speed of COVID-19 tests and obtain the speedy result of those test is now down to a 15-minute for self-test result. All 50 governors have been provided with the ability to test millions of Americans each day, as necessary.
- During the last 9 months, the President gave the US pharmaceutical industry and research labs financial incentives to develop a COVID-19 vaccine in order to protect Americans from the Communist Chinese COVID-19 virus. Investors contributed $100 billion to research companies to develop the COVID-19 vaccine. Five companies are in the final stages of developing a COVID-19 vaccine. This has been the fastest development of a vaccine in medical history because President Trump removed many administrative road blocks to developing a vaccine. The companies making excellent progress in developing the vaccine are Moderna (MRNA), Pfizer (PFE) and BioNTech (BNTX), Novavax (NVAX), and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).
President Trump and his highly skilled COVID-19 Presidential Task Force, under the superb leadership of Vice President Pence, did have a plan to protect Americans from the Communist Chinese COVID-19 infection. The aggressive leadership and prodding of a successful former American businessman turned President of the United States obtained the most impressive results of any one of the 180 countries in the world that have been infected by the Chinese Communist COVID-19 infectious disease.
The members of the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force are continuing to be slandered by Joe Biden, who has been telling the American people that there has never been a plan to protect the American people, and that the Trump Administration’s “lack of effort” has been responsible for the death of 205,000 Americans because they didn’t do enough. Kamala Harris has been telling Americans to be very reluctant to believe in the vaccine that the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force are hurriedly developing. Biden, Harris, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, and the left of center legacy media establishment who are promoting the lie that President Trump had no plan to protect the American people from the Communist Chinese COVID-19 should be required to specifically come up with their plan to overcome COVID-19. But of course, they have none.
Establishing and supervising the work of the COVID-19 Presidential Task Force is but one example of how, in the last nearly 4 years, President Trump has acted and developed outstanding results for the benefit of all the American People.
Isn’t it interesting that Communist China infected the United States with COVID-19 as a way to destroy President Trump’s economic miracle and as a way to defeat the President’s re-election while they killed 205,000 Americans? Yet Biden, Harris, Progressives, Socialists, Communists, and the left of center legacy media establishment have been blaming President Trump for the Chinese Communist pandemic, and for the death of 205, 000 Americans as a result of COVID-19, and now that Chinese Communist virus has also infected the President and the First Lady while many of Biden’s supporters are posting on Twitter that they hope the President will die from COVID-19.
The Combat Veterans For Congress send the following message to President Trump:
Mr. President, you have fought a good fight for the American people for the last four years, despite being under vile and despicable daily attacks, with no end in sight. No other President of the United States has ever experienced those types of attacks over the last 244 years. Now, millions of Americans will fight for you and your re-election. Those patriotic Americans are praying that you will remain strong, and that the Good Lord will bless, protect, and heal you, the First Lady, and all infected Americans!
