Must Read: In 2020 Abraham Lincoln Will Be Controversial – Here’s Why, Newt Gingrich, Fox News

Quote: “In Lincoln’s era, presidents could fill the government with people loyal to themselves. Lincoln spent a great deal of time on patronage in the first months of his presidency, and it was this pro-Lincoln bureaucracy that helped the Union survive the difficult first three years of war. In the modern era, the rigid bureaucratic systems severely limit a president’s ability to reshape the government.”

Must Read: President Trump’s 6 Page Impeachment Letter To Nancy Pelosi, US News

Quote: “After three years of unfair and unwarranted investigations, 45 million dollars spent, 18 angry Democrat prosecutors, the entire force of the FBI, headed by leadership now proven to be totally incompetent and corrupt, you have found NOTHING!…. You are the ones interfering in America’s elections. You are the ones subverting America’s Democracy. You are the ones Obstructing Justice. You are the ones bringing pain and suffering to our Republic for your own selfish personal, political, and partisan gain…. If you truly cared about freedom and liberty for our Nation, then you would be devoting your vast investigative resources to exposing the full truth concerning the horrifying abuses of power before, during, and after the 2016 election, including the use of spies against my campaign, the submission of false evidence to a FISA court, and the concealment of exculpatory evidence in order to frame the innocent…. This is nothing more than an illegal, partisan attempted coup that will, based on recent sentiment, badly fail at the voting booth [bold italics CS].

Latest Update, 1/30/20 -Coronavirus: Comparison To Ebola – Still A Lot Of Unknowns (video, right), CNBC

CS Commentary: As of today, 1/31/20, the coronavirus has appeared in at least one other nation, The Philippines, and is present in at least 4 US States: AZ, CA, WA, and IL. Global cases (chart below) may be as high as 10,000+ though confirmed cases are around 8000+ with current globally reported deaths around 212+, though there are conflicting reports. Part of the discrepancy of reported cases is China’s penchant for under-reporting, or in many cases, falsifying numbers. According to at least one report, China has more cases of Coronavirus than it did of SARS. SARS occurred in 2002-03. Any useful vaccine for the virus will not be ready for mass distribution for at least one year. Mortality rate presently estimated between 2% and 3%. SARS mortality rate was 10%. But, flu has a much lower mortality rate of about .5% and kills many more people a year, so control of this virus is mandatory. The US State Dept has now advised against all travel to China. See more below in Movies.

Update, 1/26/20: Contagion, 2011, Trailer (video, left), Warner Bros

CS Commentary (updated, 1/26/20 9 pm, pct): In light of the Coronavirus, we recommend this 2011 Steven Soderbergh film on a global pandemic. Rotten Tomatoes gives it an 84% critic, and a 63% audience rating. The plot thins out some towards the end, but there is much insight on how a virus spreads, the panic it can cause, and how to protect yourself. The very end shows the ‘patient zero’ cause.
