This last week we heard about and read about the money that is in this year’s Whatcom County elections.  So okay.  Let’s focus on the money.  It can make a difference.  The slicker an ad, the catchier the phrase, the more often you hear it, sways voters.  What kind of voters does money sway?  The last-minute uninvolved voter.  Why is this a big deal?  Because as we have often seen in Whatcom County many voters do not actually know the person they vote for. 

This article is reprinted from the "Epoch Times," and was written by local resident, Lt. Colonel Jim McKinney, retired.


VIEWPOINT: by Jim McKinney, December 12, 2019

Progressives, Democrat strategists, and the powerful elite class fell into a political trap. They dug it themselves. Their only hope of escape: complicit media outlets and an ignorant public.

If they successfully impeach the president, they will set a precedent that will change the United States forever. But they’re deep in the trap themselves. The American people, and President Donald Trump, are smarter than the elite believe.

This article was researched and submitted by EJ Ledet, a local chemical engineer who also specializes in chemical science. Mr. Ledet has submitted this for publication and I have agreed with the caveat that this article is not a recommendation, but an informational resource for readily available supplements like zinc and selinium, which have promising properties in boosting your immune system to stay avoid contracting communicable diseases like the coronavirus.

This is not a medical recommendation and is only published for the benefit of those who are looking for ways to stay as healthy as possible. It is also recommended that you take the time to ask your physician if you are taking any medications that would not interact well with these two mineral/supplements, or if you have any underlying medical issues that may be negatively affected by these supplements


Maybe the best remedy is to boost our immune systems with Zinc supplements. Research on other Corona viruses ( SARS a close cousin of CoV19, MERS , HIV, rhinovirus “cold” virus, ) have used zinc with a carrier (ionophore) molecule ( metal chelate/ligand like “pyrithione,” which in itself is effective against bacteria and fungus of which two commonly known are dermatitis and dandruff.

Two months ago, we all agreed that something should be done to protect those among us that would be at risk of dying from COVID-19.  Taking care of others is a very laudable attribute, especially in a society of individualists like us.

So, our government decided that EVERYONE needed to go home except ESSENTIAL workers.  And here is where the problems began.  We made a list that included the practical and the ridiculous.

Today, Saturday Morning Live - Liberty Road, participated in the media advisory conference call to learn and share what small business can expect from the new Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (PPP/HCE) to give the assistance and relief that small businesses need to weather the economic shutdown.

The funding for PPP/HCE includes additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, Economic Injury Disaster Loans, Hospitals and other aide.

Friday - April 24, 2020 -- President Trump signs the PPP/HCE Act.

Monday - April 27, 2020, 10:30 am -- Funding for PPP, EIDL, and Other aide is released.

EIDL: Small Business Association (SBA) website portal for new EIDL applications will be reopened -- SOON!

If your business already applied for EIDL and your application number starts with the number '3', you do not need to reapply; you are already in the queue.

  1. We solved the wrong problem.
  2. Never listen to an epidemiologist again.
  3. The “Scientific” Models Suck.
  4. Groupthink will kill more people than the virus, so don’t let it suck you in.
  5. Follow the science not the politicians or fake news media.
  6. Change our laws to prevent any leader from ever trampling our liberties again.
  7. Make all critical medicines and medical supplies in America.
  8. Teach effective problem-solving skills in our schools.

  1. We solved the wrong problem

The problem was defined by epidemiologists from the CDC, WHO, and Dr. Anthony Fauci, NIAID Director as a pandemic that would kill millions of people and overload our healthcare facilities resulting in more uncontrolled deaths and chaos. So, to prevent that from happening our politicians listened to these trusted experts called epidemiologists.

The local chapter of RE Sources for a Sustainable Community sent out a "call to action" to their supporters which urges them to bombard the Whatcom County Council with form letters to ask that the Council vote to extend the Cherry Point Industries moratorium. They made it super-easy for their members to bombard the Council by providing them with a pre-written form letter which they'll submit for them at no cost, this same organization who receives "thousands-of-your-tax-dollars" from this Council. It even contains a special module that let's them add their own personalized touch to the email; then with the click of a  button--WOOSH!, off it goes. Their anything-but grassroots message goes directly into the Whatcom County Council's email inbox, to be counted against the economic future and vitality of our community. Shoot, they've even got a handy-dandy button to make it easy-as-pie to forward this email to the members email contact list.

Well, protesters are finding out just what it takes to turn their feelings into effective actions. 

Feeding the masses:

They have a great feeling of compassion for the homeless, so they invited them in to share their food.  The homeless did more than share, they ate it all.  Now there are calls for food donations because the stores that they have tagged are closed.

They feel they should have the right for their more expensive food tastes to be honored – so they have asked that the donations be vegan - soy, oatmeal, veggies, etc.  They may discover that the adage beggars cannot be choosers will come into play on this request.
