Comfort and Mercy come via 2 USA ships: Russian collusion truther and left-wing conspiracy theorist Rachel Maddow said barely over a week ago that it’s “nonsense” the Navy hospital ship will be in New York City soon.
“There is no sign that the Navy hospital ships that the President made such a big deal of — the Comfort and the Mercy – there is no sign that they will be anywhere on site helping anywhere in the country for weeks yet,” Maddow said 10 days ago on her show.
But Maddow was wrong. As usual.
And the Naval hospital arrived in New York Monday morning to cheers — several days ahead of schedule.
As reported last week — Nevada’s Governor Steve Sisolak (D) on Tuesday issued an emergency order barring the use of anti-malaria drugs such as chloroquine for Coronavirus patients.
In addition to barring the use of chloroquine for Coronavirus patients on Tuesday, Nevada’s governor also banned social gatherings of more than 10 people.
According to the governor’s order anyone who violates the order will be charged with at least a misdemeanor crime and it remains in place until April 16 (after Easter).
Governor Sisolak’s Chief Medical Officer of Nevada is named Ihsan Azzam and he is the one who advised Gov. Sisolak to make it illegal to prescribe hydroxychloroquine to COVID-19 victims.
Ihsan Azzamoversees public health surveillance, epidemiology and disease control activities in the state of Nevada.
But as reported in the Washington Times in 2018 — Ihsan Azzam does not have a license to practice medicine in the United States and yet he is dictating public health policy in Nevada!
Nevada’s top doctor isn’t licensed to practice medicine in the United States.
Ihsan Azzam testified in Las Vegas on Tuesday that he has a master’s degree and worked for several years in environmental public health and epidemiology before being named chief state medical officer last May.
Azzam says he practiced for several years as an obstetrics and gynecology physician in Africa before moving to the United States in the 1990s.
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Tom Hogan, a member of the parish, spoke at Resurrection Church 3/23/2000 on Why Now and How the Remodel of Markey Community Center will proceed. Tom Hogan is on the Steering Committee guiding the remodel effort. He detailed the necessary safety issues which must be addressed.
The hub for Resurrection Church — their community center — requires extensive changes to make it safe for volunteers, staff and the persons served. Resurrection Church provides many ministries to youth, seniors and vulnerable persons.
One vulnerable person served: Many non-profit organizations including Boy Scouts use the Community Center to provides services used by the Aptosian community. Click Here for a brief video of a Boy Scout project located on Resurrection’s grounds which, when the video was taken, provides temporary shelter for a homeless person.
Why is the proposed remodel of Resurrection Church’s community center so expensive? Safety is the prime reason for the expensive remodel: the expected cost $5.5 MILLION.
Safety issues: Resurrection Church’s community center is a 55 year old building, separate from the church proper, which has asbestos in the walls and ceiling and paint with lead in it on the walls. The building floods on occasion due to stormy weather. Recently, a large tree fell one corner of Markey Community Center, disabling the Center for a few days and ‘yellow tagging’ Resurrection Church’s children’s playground which is currently not safe to use. Volunteers and staff need to be able to exit safely should there be an emergency such a as a dangerous person confronting them. them. Federal OSHA law requires exit routes be mantaotry. The ceiling requires a sprinkler system. The bathrooms need to meet health codes and must be safe for persons in wheel chairs.
Resurrection Church has THE PLAN which it has been following to gather the necessary money needed prior to start of construction. For information on Resurrection Church’s website click HERE for the Resurrection Catholic Church 2020 Campaign.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic Resurrection Church was required by the Diocese to cancel the meeting for Volunteers scheduled for today 3/14/2000. Also, the Church was required to cancel various fundraisers including Sunday Icecream Social and Eat, Drink and Give.
Resurrection Church’s grounds include places for repose, places to sit and enjoy the beauty of the setting. One such spot I call Art from the Heart located in front of the Handicapped Parking. Click Here for a brief video of Art from the Heart.
Overkill reactions n to the corona virus? Are you hoarding toilet paper? Hiding toilet paper in your safe? Come on now ….
Roughly 40 persons in the USA have died from the Corona virus, about half who died are in one nursing home in Seattle, Washington.
The most vulnerable to succumb to the virus are older persons over 60 with respiratory issues and chronic illnesses. Roughly half of those who have died are from one facility in Seattle, WA.
One local Santa Cruz MD predicts that one MILLION persons in the USA alone will die from the virus. Based on what facts? That’s an overkill reaction.
What does make sense to do:
regularly and frequently wipe down using disinfectant wipes those surfaces people frequently touch (door knobs, church pews, tables, railings)
regularly and frequently wash hands 20 seconds with soap and water
practice ‘social distancing’ so less exposed to coughs
stay home when sick or think you are getting sick
The stock market plunged down to levels where there are good stocks to buy. One area to consider are consumer goods companies which produce disinfectant wipes. For example, Clorox wipes are made by a CA company with 8,000 employees. Clorox is a a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble. So — why not invest in America’s need for more disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces clean? The Motley Fool recommended buying Proctor and Gamble today 3/12/2000.
Author Dr. David Schneider, an orthopedic surgeon from Colorado, explained how with socialized medicine, wait times for care “are disastrous.” In Canada, the wait time to see a specialist is two years, and then another two years to get the procedure.
“People in this country would go crazy if you were told you had to wait four months,” he said.
Then he explained how Princess Diana would be alive today, if not for socialized medicine. “Princess Diana was in the car accident in France,” he explained. “They actually don’t have any trauma specialists in France.”
“For the first hour after that accident, she was still in that tunnel,” he continued. “And after an hour, they took her to a nearby hospital and she was alive for another three hours and they couldn’t control the bleeding from her pulmonary artery.”
Schneider explained that “there were no trauma-trained people there.
