It sure feels better to be discussing the potential path out of this COVID-19 nightmare—in contrast to the last month of wondering when we could even talk about restarting the economy and our lives.
White House has a solid framework for what that plan looks like and we need that hope.
As we begin the inspiring and energizing road back to some semblance of normalcy, we better not lose sight of the hazards that can arise along the way.
Even as some businesses reopen, some folks should wait to return due to age or other vulnerabilities. Gloves, masks and social distancing gonna be with us for a good while more.
And we absolutely need reliable widespread testing.
We are on way out of this, but it’ll take every measure of our national resolve and our personal commitment to do it successfully.
But we can do this.Read More »
The Coronavirus pandemic is awful. Nonetheless we should not miss that this event allows us the opportunity to take stock of our national health.
Here’s one angle. For decades, Americans have watched as uncritical globalism has shipped hometown jobs to overseas locales. Many hard-working people have lost employment, with many men struggling greatly. Opioids have filled the gap, leaving families ravaged in their wake.
Too long have we just watched these trends. Too long have our towns crumbled, our families pulled apart. Too long have we tolerated economic chaos to buy trinkets for a few dollars less. The social costs have been staggering.
A global economy bears many benefits to us all. But uncritical globalism has had major consequences. We need masks, for example, but depend upon a corrupt Chinese government for them. The irony is thick.
Now is a great time to imagine what a national reset could look like.Read More »
Townhall Review – April 18, 2020

We just passed the Passover and Easter Holiday weekends and I noticed something very interesting in the data published by the University of Washington.
It looks like the U.S. death rate from coronavirus peaked on April 10th, that is Passover and Good Friday. That day 2,077 people died, more than any other day before, and from there, daily death tolls look to be retreating.
Providence? Coincidence? You be the judge. But it certainly is poignant and spiritually powerful. Passover was the moment of peak death during the plagues on Egypt when Jews stayed at home together worshiping while the angel of death passed through the land. Good Friday was the peak death moment of human history, the hour of darkness before the turning of Easter and the defeating of death in the resurrection.
What an appropriate time for death to be on the retreat in our current struggle.Read More »
The evidence that China covered up the early days of the novel coronavirus that has now left the world in great danger is overwhelming.
China has suffered a well-deserved loss of “soft power” and goodwill here in the US.
Most of us are now awake to the evils of this regime. But—as we respond—we need to be smart about it.
We don’t need to be concerned about cheap toys and consumer electronics.
We need to get hyper-focused on genuinely strategic industries—especially high tech and biotech/pharma. The way to stop the rise of China is to put maximum legal pressure on U.S. tech executives who look the other way while China steals the military technologies of the future: AI, quantum computing, 5g networks and advanced biotechnology.
We need to protect the intellectual property that drives the rise and fall of great powers, the cutting edge of technology.Read More »
