Democrats on Capitol Hill and campaigns across the country are telegraphing their next big move. They are watching the coronavirus outbreak in the United States and working with their media proxies to spin this crisis in the minds of Americans as President Trump’s fault. Every statement regarding the virus will have the President’s name and his responses to the disease attached to it, and invariably it will be painted in a negative light. Meanwhile, the true culprits who sparked this soon-to-be pandemic—China’s Communist Party—get a pass in the eyes of Democrats and the media.
The Mueller investigation failed. Impeachment failed. Now, they’re turning to an act of God as their election savior. Even if we dismiss how pitiful their strategies have been since the midterm elections, we cannot look past the depravity necessary to do, as Laura Ingraham put it, “Coronavirus Campaigning.” In fact, the NY Times went so far as to rename the coronavirus for effect, as The Daily Wire EIC Ben Shapiro noted.
So China unleashes a highly viral and significantly deadly virus and actively shuts down information about it, the virus hits every populated continent…and you're calling it Trumpvirus? https://t.co/6hFZk88uLm

The level of propaganda regarding this outbreak is going far beyond their previous efforts to take down President Trump, which is saying a lot considering they’ve kept the anti-Trump volume at 11 for over three years. But they have a few major problems, not the least of which is their need for the coronavirus to take a very nasty turn in our nation. It’s arguably the most disgusting aspect of modern American politics that opposition parties must inwardly (and sometimes outwardly) cheer for disaster in order to harm their political rivals.
Their biggest problem is, of course, fighting the facts. The President was lambasted by Democrats and the press when he initiated the travel ban from China. They called it a “racist” move that was premature. Of course, there were no retractions or apologies when the wisdom of his move become evident. They simply moved on and found a new angle from which to attack. Then, the President asked for $2.5 billion to fight the virus, at which point Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said it was insufficient. As Speaker of the House, she has more control over the nation’s purse strings than anyone else. In his speech regarding the coronavirus yesterday, he rightly noted that if she thought it was insufficient, she has the power to allocate more.
The economy is another major risk factor for the President as it’s arguably his biggest selling point for reelection. The coronavirus is in the process of greatly damaging the world economy, including ours. There’s no way to know where the “coronavirus bottom” is. Supply lines have been affected dramatically already. The stock market is plunging. Democrats and their media allies are being careful not to blame this side-effect on the President yet, but they’re keeping their eyes on it. Any moves the President makes to turn things around will be instantly deemed ineffective in the left’s efforts to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. In times of crisis, sentiment is the biggest driving force behind major rises and falls of economic indicators and the left will try to keep everyone scared.
There’s a problem with this for Democrats. Most economists have been expecting the economy to slow dramatically at some point soon. We’ve never experienced sustained growth for this long—now over a decade—and a downturn has been due, even if only as a major market correction. Well, here it is. It’s the one silver lining regarding the coronavirus, at least from the President’s perspective. A downturn caused by an act of God followed by a rebound leading into the November elections is an ideal scenario for the President politically. One of the biggest risks to his reelection hopes was an ill-timed downturn with no outward factors making it happen. If the coronavirus can be contained or eliminated by late spring or early summer, the President can ride the growth that follows as a testament to his economic leadership despite a disaster.
None of this takes into account the worst-case-scenario: the coronavirus causing major sickness, death, and havoc in the United States. Sadly, it’s what Democrats need and, at least in some cases, want. And it could happen. We are better prepared than China was, but this virus seems to be exceptionally contagious and resilient. If it turns really bad in the United States, we could see the President’s administration crippled, the Republican party blamed, and an election day rebuke driven by fear and anger.
Let’s pray that’s not the case.
If the coronavirus is contained, the economy rebounds nicely, and the fears of the people subside, it will be very difficult for Democrats to claim it happened in spite of the President when they’re busy pinning all of the blame for it ahead of time. They’ll still try, but they’re giving Republicans plenty of ammunition to demonstrate their hypocrisy when general election season ramps up.
Democrats and the media want Americans to think of this outbreak as the “Trumpvirus.” It’s a ludicrous label prima facie, but it’s the best election option the left has right now. Hopefully, Americans will recognize the unhinged silliness of the claim.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
