Wang Fang, an accomplished author of novels, keeps an online diary and is followed by 4.2 million people in China on Weibo. During the middle of Wuhan’s coronavirus lockdown, CCP authorities were repeatedly censoring her WeChat account. As a response, she would repeatedly update her followers to her new accounts every few days. Now, that’s dedication to speak the truth–true journalism and real news.
Chinese people have found solace in her voice that spoke truth to the devastating situation in Wuhan. Below, she courageously declared who the government is for and who its master is:
“The government is the people’s government; it exists to serve the people,” wrote Wang Fang, a Chinese writer better known by her pen name, Fang Fang, in a social-media post. “Please take back your arrogance and humbly show gratitude to your masters—the millions of Wuhan people.” (quote from WSJ).
Applause and thanks to Wang Fang. Keep it up. I pray that you will be safe from the government in Wuhan. Fang Fang concludes: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” May God bless you and watch over you as you keep fighting the good fight.
My heart goes out to the innocent victims of a senseless and random shooting on Sunday that has killed at least 18 people in rural Nova Scotia, located in Atlantic Canada. People are saddened, confused and shocked by this horrific incident. Their lives have been trampled by senseless violence. My prayers go out to the people of Portapique, and to Nova Scotia:
“Dear God, be with the residents of Portapique, Nova Scotia. Holy Spirit, sooth their hearts, old and young, men, women and children. Calm their fears. Give them healing from this horrific tragedy. This I pray in your holy name.”
The gunman, Mr. Gabriel Wortman, was shot dead by the RCMP police at a gas station in Enfield, NS, along Highway 102. I have personally driven along Hwy 102 and perhaps have even made a pit stop at the local Irving gas station years ago, which makes it a little eerie.
What makes this killing rampage so horrifying is that he was not killing his enemies but his friends. News reports say he was knocking on people’s doors with a rifle in hand. A family inside a home was horrified as the gunman was pounding on their front door to get in. Undoubtedly, the people of community in Portapique will be reeling in shock.
How does this happen to a small community? Stuff like this isn’t supposed to happen. It makes me wonder if something in the killer had snapped. Did he have mental illness? He is known to have run a local denture clinic. He was also known to have given away dentures to people who needed it.
Mr Wortman was also into police memorabilia. He drove in a fake police cruiser and was wearing an RCMP uniform at the time of his killing rampage. In his high school year book, he had written, “Gabe’s future may include being an RCMP officer.”
I will be very interested in knowing what happened in this man that would cause him to go on a killing rampage.
This week, the massacre in Portapique, Nova Scotia, left a string of at least 22 dead along the killer’s route on Highway 102 / Rte. 2. It will leave a negative impact on the surrounding community for a very long time. The motive is yet to be determined.
A recent article in the Epoch Times points to a common factor that runs across numerous mass killings in recent past. There was a lack of a father in the family.
“Whether they were Adam Lanza who committed the Sandy Hook killings, Elliot Rodger at UC Santa Barbara, Dylann Roof in Charleston, Nikolas Cruz in Parkland, Stephen Paddock in Las Vegas, and on and on, they were all dad-deprived kids,” Warren Farrell, an American academic and author of “The Boy Crisis,” said in an interview.
Farrell, head of a White House commission to create a Council on Boys and Men during the Obama administration, says Wortman fits the same profile. “[Mass shooters] are almost always males as opposed to females, and they’re usually white, and there is dad-deprivation, which of course Gabriel Wortman’s father was absent for most of his life. He fits that category.”
A tragic loss and a deep sadness ensues the Royal Canadian Navy. An unimaginably deep loss for their family members. Many hearts must have sank upon hearing and reading about this tragedy in the news. Thoughts and prayers go out for the military members and their families. May God be with you all.
A scripture on the facebook page of SLt A. Cowbrough reads, “If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” Romans 8:31. This was on her social media. It provides some encouragement for all. God will always be for us. No death can can ever deter us from standing on guard for thee.
Below are what is already public knowledge from the news media.
1. Four aviators onboard CH-148, along with two sailors from HMCS Fredericton, crashed off the coast of Greece. The helo was doing a routine training exercise yesterday afternoon when it crashed.
2. Facts known. Search and rescue is underway to find the remaining five crew members. Reports say that scattered debris have been found and might be difficult to locate those who are still missing. The flight voice and data recorders have been found. Operational pause in the navy is in place until the military knows more about why it happened.
3. Reason for ship/helo’s presence in the area. The ship and helicopter are a part of a NATO mission Operation REASSURANCE. Rear-Admiral Baines (CO, Maritime Atlantic) announced in the news that the helicopter was returning to the ship when it lost contact and crashed.
4. The helicopter was a brand new Sikorsky-built, CH-148 Cyclone. It is designed and fitted for Halifax-class Canadian frigates. As part of a procurement for the Canadian Armed Forces, these Cyclone helicopters are brand new. They were delivered to the Canadian military and have been deployed on board some of the frigates within the last 1.5 years.
Photos above are the six members onboard the helicopter. Sub-Lieutenant Abbigail Cowbrough (deceased) Sub-Lieutenant Matthew Pyke (missing) Master Corporal Matthew Cousins (missing) Captain Brenden Ian MacDonald (missing) Captain Kevin Hagen (missing) Captain Maxime Miron-Morin (missing)
Gen. Mike Flynn is and has always been innocent. The Department of Justice is currently uncovering facts intentionally hidden by the FBI. It is now known that the FBI had the intent of framing him for a crime he did not commit, then laying a trap for him to admit to a crime created by the FBI.
Sounds complex? For regular people like myself, stories like this have never been easy to understand. The FBI and the left know this. They muddy-up the story using legal means and secrecy, making it too complicated for most people to understand.
Kimberley Strassel of the Wall Street Journal published an article yesterday, “The FBI’s Flynn Outrage: New documents shock the conscience and demonstrate the need for accountability“:
“Mr. Flynn in 2017 pleaded guilty to a single count of lying to FBI agents about conversations he had with Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s ambassador to the U.S. Thanks to new documents the feds belatedly turned over to his attorneys, we know the FBI engineered this “crime.” Handwritten notes from former FBI counterintelligence head Bill Priestap, made before the bureau’s interview of Mr. Flynn, ask the following: “What is our goal? Truth/Admission, or to get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”
One of the frustrations of the Trump-Russia “collusion” narrative is that the evidence of law enforcement’s abuse of power keeps emerging in dribs and drabs. To grasp the outrageous conduct fully, the Flynn documents need to be added to what we already know. The overall evidence paints a scandalous picture: Having labored and abysmally failed in 2016 to build a case that Mr. Flynn was an agent of the Russians, the FBI and Justice Department changed gears—rifling through his communications, inventing a fake crime, and entrapping him on a “lying” charge.”
Evidence against FBI Director, James Comey is damning. Comey manufactured a lie, and Robert Mueller perpetuated the lie against Gen. Flynn. They intended to jail an innocent and honorable man who faithfully served his country for over 30 years. This is an outrage and injustice.
The left’s debacles are now starting to unreel, one after another. From accusations like fake dossiers, false accusations of Russian collusion, to relentless attempts to impeach President Trump.
The public has been observing these scandalous manoeuvre’s by the left-leaning political operatives, i.e., House Democrats and Obama Administration. Evidence is being gathered and documented.
It is undeniable that they have been out to “get Trump” from the very beginning. They have been cooking up fake dossiers by Clinton, telling lies, using cover-ups and slander to try to get their way.
Furthermore, the liberal mainstream media has enabled this. This is why Trump has labelled the media “fake news” and it will stick. The left-wing still hasn’t succeeded in getting what they want, and yet, they’re still cooking up new schemes to “get Trump” using the Coronavirus angle. Very sad indeed.
People’s faith in politicians on the left is depleting very quickly. The public will see it, and have been seeing this transpire before their eyes. It is becoming more clear by the day. Trust in government institutions is eroding. This is very unhealthy and extremely toxic for a supposedly free and democratic society.
Justice must be served. Restore the people’s trust in government institutions by holding responsible those who are guilty of their criminal misconduct and shameful misdeamenors.
I believe this is also a spiritual battle that Christian believers and spiritual people ought to pray about. The evil one is out to cause confusion and division using hate, lies and slander. In the end, may God’s will be done.
As I was listening to her Majesty address the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth today (which happens to be Palm Sunday), what rang most true to me was her encouragement to remain strong and meek. By the way, at 94 years of age, she is one who is surely blessed with strong. God bless her Majesty. As members of the Commonwealth nations, we will be remembered for the kindness and a gentle but strong spirit that will characterize us in the decades to come. Here below is my favourite quote from her speech today.
Together we are tackling this disease, and I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it…. That the attributes of self-discipline, of quiet good-humoured resolve and of fellow-feeling still characterise this country. The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future.
__________________________________ Speech in its entirety below:
I am speaking to you at what I know is an increasingly challenging time. A time of disruption in the life of our country: a disruption that has brought grief to some, financial difficulties to many, and enormous changes to the daily lives of us all.
I want to thank everyone on the NHS front line, as well as care workers and those carrying out essential roles, who selflessly continue their day-to-day duties outside the home in support of us all. I am sure the nation will join me in assuring you that what you do is appreciated and every hour of your hard work brings us closer to a return to more normal times.
I also want to thank those of you who are staying at home, thereby helping to protect the vulnerable and sparing many families the pain already felt by those who have lost loved ones. Together we are tackling this disease, and I want to reassure you that if we remain united and resolute, then we will overcome it.
I hope in the years to come everyone will be able to take pride in how they responded to this challenge. And those who come after us will say the Britons of this generation were as strong as any. That the attributes of self-discipline, of quiet good-humoured resolve and of fellow-feeling still characterise this country. The pride in who we are is not a part of our past, it defines our present and our future.
The moments when the United Kingdom has come together to applaud its care and essential workers will be remembered as an expression of our national spirit; and its symbol will be the rainbows drawn by children.
Across the Commonwealth and around the world, we have seen heart-warming stories of people coming together to help others, be it through delivering food parcels and medicines, checking on neighbours, or converting businesses to help the relief effort.
And though self-isolating may at times be hard, many people of all faiths, and of none, are discovering that it presents an opportunity to slow down, pause and reflect, in prayer or meditation.
It reminds me of the very first broadcast I made, in 1940, helped by my sister. We, as children, spoke from here at Windsor to children who had been evacuated from their homes and sent away for their own safety. Today, once again, many will feel a painful sense of separation from their loved ones. But now, as then, we know, deep down, that it is the right thing to do.
While we have faced challenges before, this one is different. This time we join with all nations across the globe in a common endeavour, using the great advances of science and our instinctive compassion to heal. We will succeed – and that success will belong to every one of us.
We should take comfort that while we may have more still to endure, better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.
But for now, I send my thanks and warmest good wishes to you all.
More people are now saying that the coronavirus came from a lab in China. We want to know why it happened. We need an explanation for our pain and suffering. There is a documentary called Tracking Down the Origin of Wuhan Coronavirus. It is a captivating and a well documented 1-hour video. It is a must-see.
It reveals scientific evidence of the source and creation of the SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) from the P4 Lab, run by the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The origin of the coronavirus had its origins in an experimental research laboratory, the Wuhan P4 Lab. This documentary lays out the facts backed up by credible scientific journals and papers, and lays out the timeline of what happened in China’s labs. I’ve had to watch this three times myself before the facts and arguments presented came together for me.
The research Lancet Papers had shown there was already a cluster of people infected with coronavirus before any were found related to the seafood market. If there were no bats sold at the Huanan Seafood Market, why blame the wet market? Was it to distract attention away from the P4 lab? The Huanan Seafood Market was only 280 meters from the Wuhan P4 lab.
The Wuhan coronavirus was very closely related to the two viruses (bat-SL-CoVZC45 and bat-SL-CoVZXZ21) sampled from bats in 2018 from Zhoushan by the People’s Liberation Army. These bats exhibited severe respiratory syndrome, and there was a clear resemblance of genome sequencing. The bat’s coronavirus had 100% match in amino acids in the E proteins in SARS-Cov-2. These scientist claim that these viruses were engineered to enable transmittability into the human body via the S-protein. It was published in the Nature Medicine (here). Numerous other papers were published by top Chinese virologists, including Shi Zhengli (nicknamed China’s “bat woman” due to her extensive research into bat viruses).
These experiments were covered up and information was suppressed. The CCP government ordered research findings be destroyed. This lab was silent during the Wuhan outbreak. Very strange indeed. Are these indications the CCP is hiding something sinister?
This documentary is not the only one informing the public. There is also the National Review here, plus many others. Millions of Chinese people inside and outside of mainland China are publicizing and talking about this. It is all over China’s social media and the CCP cannot possibly censor everything.
This video seems to be censored by Facebook. I checked. Try sharing this on fb and you might get this message: “Partly False Information: Checked by independent fact-checkers.” The link is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bXWGxhd7ic
Hong Kong was a democracy. Today, in effect, it no longer is. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has threatened the health and economic security of almost every nation. A strong statement? Yes. Why so? The CCP’s treatment of Hong Kongers affects the safety of every democratic nation. Their ill-treatment towards Hong Kong protesters has been of willful and open defiance. If China can do this today, they will continue this behavior in the future as their power increases?
It is unethical and immoral behavior toward a democracy.
On July 1, the CCP openly arrested and jailed 300+ pro-democracy protesters who protested peacefully. Not long ago, they had arrested and jailed fifteen lawyers and abducted four bookstore owners. In the west, such cowardly acts would be unthinkable. The CPP is no longer lingering in secret in Hong Kong. They are directly manipulating Hong Kong’s police, politicians, and the law, in order to stamp out this established democracy.
For the CCP–truth, free speech and the freedom to assemble–are feared. It is the way all communism and authoritarian regimes operate in order to hold onto power. They cannot tolerate freedom. Here in the democratic west, our values of freedom and liberty are very different from that of China’s CCP. Freedom is something the CCP will never understand, nor appreciate.
We must not be complacent, nor naive about the Chinese Communist Party, nor about their intentions to intimidate, dominate and control the southern Pacific region. If we do, we will risk losing our own freedoms, liberties, and possibly, even our own safety and security in the future.
Just read a blog post on why Donald Trump uses the word “tremendous” so much. It wasn’t the answer that attracted me to his post but his understanding, analysis and rationale of Trump that fascinated me. Love him or hate him, Trump is a fascinating character. Most people don’t understand him. They just say he’s “crazy” but that’s too easy. Personally I think he’s a genius. I fully agree with Matthew McFadden’s analysis of his personality. Finally someone who understands him. Good on you. Here is the link at Island of Misfit Posts here.
Got to watch. Patrick Bet-David and defector Yeon-mi Park on his channel Valuetainment. This was one of the most fascinating interviews I have heard about North Korea and the life they live. Life in this false utopic Communist state is something we in the west don’t get to hear about. Very eye-opening. Thanks Patrick and Yeon-mi.
