Lanhee Chen: We Can Overcome This Crisis Together

There’s something important that all of us can do to stop the spread of coronavirus.

It’s not convenient, and it’s not necessarily fun. But it will save lives. What is it? Try your best to stay at home.

You can still take walks outside with others in your family, shop for essentials, or get take-out from a local restaurant.

And there’s also plenty we can do to stay connected to others: Check in on your loved ones and friends frequently, give to people in need in your community—supplies for food pantries, financial donations, personal hygiene items.

Buy online gift certificates to your favorite local stores and restaurants — and use them when this is over.

If you’re going to spread anything, spread help, compassion and humor. Above all, do not panic. Remember: Like all outbreaks, this too will eventually end.

Focused and united, we can avoid the worst possibilities. It’s up to all of us. As a country, we can overcome this crisis together.

Hugh Hewitt: Congress Must Go Far, Go Big, Go Fast

Senate Republicans must go big and fast in their response to the coronavirus. They are facing choices right now about what sort of economic relief and stimulus package they support in response to the coronavirus outbreak.

The goal is simple: Help those injured in their pocketbooks and provide aid to an economy shuddering under successive shocks of slowdowns and closures.

The biggest impediment to success might be the fact that Capitol Hill staffs don’t turn over much. Longtime Hill workers aren’t exactly the eager recipients of new policy proposals that haven’t been sliced and diced by constituent interest groups.

That has to change. The need is urgent for Congress to go far, go big, go fast. Senate Majority Leader McConnell announced the intention to do just that. He’s going to stay there until it gets done using never tried before ideas.

Time to break the glass and pull the alarm. Time to spend as though you are FDR going to war.

This is no time for business as usual.

Jerry Bowyer: China and the Coronavirus

Amidst the chaos surrounding the coronavirus, it’s worth asking how it got to the point of our now global pandemic. We should not overlook or quickly move past China’s authoritarian, messianic government.

Remember—as the Wall Street Journal reported—one of the very first doctors to discover the outbreak was accused of “spreading rumors.” Another was forced to write a letter apologizing for the “negative impact” his warning had.

The Chinese government is exceptionally harsh on anyone that questions the benevolence and competence of the Communist Party.

That’s how the Chinese cult of personality works. That’s why they persecute the Church.

What kind of country would punish doctors for trying to prevent a plague? The kind that has replaced God with the state.

I’m not pre-occupied with calling it the Chinese coronavirus or the Wuhan virus. But there is no doubt that the Chinese government does bear unique culpability.
