National Guard activated to combat coronavirus spread in six states, more to follow

Don’t OVER COMPLICATE THIS.  Try to remain CALM and remember the time-proven approach to past disasters of “KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID”  Confusion is not your friend.  Planning, communication, and ACTION are.  If you snooze on this you will most assuredly lose.

The ‘window of opportunity’ to prepare your family for this is almost closed – perhaps four days left – if that.

This pandemic couldn’t have happened at a worse time, but then is there ever a good time for a pandemic?  Just as the flu and HAY FEVER season are PEAKING, which have the same symptoms as the WUHAN VIRUS, things could not get more complicated.

I believe our President is handling this as effectively as is humanly possible – especially having to deal with COMMUNISTS in the Democrat Party who are doing their best to SABATOGE his every effort.  He has IMMENSE AUTHORITY in national disasters, and he has used restraint so far.  We will see where that takes us.

Expect ALL SCHOOLS TO CLOSE next week.  This will CRUSH Doctors, nurses, and all public health workers who DEPEND ON SCHOOLS FOR DAY CARE.  This will frustrate and lessen available health care givers from going to work.  Will family and neighbors actually BE family and neighbors?  Remember that in a quarantine, family and neighbors may be our last hope, but ANYONE outside your front door can bring the Wuhan virus to you.  Any and all interactions (even with your mail you get out of your mailbox) are potential sources.  If you have kids or grandkids, *MAKE LONG-TERM QUARANTINE PLANS FOR THEM TODAY* – don’t wait.  Once the quarantine takes effect – THAT IS WHERE THEY WILL STAY.  Get on the phone and start talking to your family about this *NOW*  – *COMMUNICATION CAN SAVE  YOUR LIFE LATER ON!*

Expect ENTIRE STATES that are heavily infected (CA, NY, WA, CO, FL) to be COMPLETELY SEALED at their borders and all crossroads by this time next week.

Expect an ENFORCED 30-DAY NATIONAL QUARANTINE before this time next week.  The NG falls under Executive Order now that the CINC has formally declared a NATIONAL EMERGENCY.  You may have less than 72 hours to travel freely outside your home – a week at most.

I full support the POTUS in this quarantine.  The AWOL rate may be high.  It will test the NG discipline absolutely, as well as the active duty forces, but they are already quarantine to their bases and will be used to enforce the quarantine only at the proximity of active duty military installations.  Will we see NG road checkpoints on interstates and major crossroads?

Wal-Mart DISTRO CENTERS  are already running out of food but that won’t matter if nobody is able to go to work under a quarantine ENFORCED BY THE NG.  The nation does still have emergency food depots staged for events such as these.  Praying we won’t need these.

Except LETHAL FORCE TO BE AUTHORIZED to contain (stop) lootin and door-door home invasions.

Expect to be looking at the inside walls of your house for 30 – 60 days.

If it has been years (if ever) that you have trusted in God, you may want to learn how to pray.  Stay safe, inside, and healthy.

These are the times that will test us to see what we are made of.  Will Disney, ESPN, our globalist social justice warriors running our entire education system, gay and abortion rights, advanced training to teach K-5 children transgenderism, A-political politics,  ipads, iphones, Hollywood, FB, YT, Twitter and pornography save us?


New York Army National Guard Soldiers distribute food parcels in Westchester County, N.Y. on March 12, 2020 as part of the New York State response to the effort to contain a cluster of coronavirus, also known as Covid-19, cases in New Rochelle, N.Y. The soldiers and airmen were providing food to families to make up for school lunch and breakfast meals students are missing after schools in New Rochelle were closed to prevent the spread of the virus.

National Guard activated to combat coronavirus spread in six states, more to follow

The governors of Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, New York, Rhode Island and Washington have all activated components of their Army and Air National Guard. Guardsmen in California and Maryland are also expected to join their states’ efforts today.

“The National Guard is fully involved at the local, state, and federal level in the planning and execution of the nation’s response to COVID-19,” a National Guard Bureau spokesperson said in the release. “In times of emergency, the National Guard Bureau serves as a federal coordinating agency should a state require assistance from the National Guard of another state.”

“At the national level, Guard members are training personnel on COVID-19 response, identifying and preparing National Guard facilities for use as isolation housing, and compiling state medical supply inventories,” the release continued. “National Guard personnel will provide assistance to the states that include logistical support, disinfection/cleaning, activate/conduct transportation of medical personnel, call center support, and meal delivery.”

While the number currently stands at under 500, the National Guard Bureau said those numbers “will rapidly change,” as the agency “expect[s] that number to approach 1,000” by the end of the day.

Currently, 33 states have declared states of emergencies to mobilize greater resources and streamline responses to the new coronavirus outbreak, the bureau noted.

Individual state responses

On Monday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed an executive order to grant greater authorities to state officials.
