A great story featuring America's spirit and the sacrifices made by a 'band of brothers'—aiding our nation's frontline against Covid-19. We salute Mark Nikolich and the team at Braskem America!

Excerpt from Washington Post:
No one told them they had to do it, Braskem America CEO Mark Nikolich said. All of the workers volunteered, hunkering down at the plant to ensure no one caught the virus outside as they sought to meet the rocketing demand for their key product, polypropylene, which is needed to make various medical and hygienic items. Braskem’s plant in Neal, W.Va., is doing a second live-in now. The story was earlier reported in Philadelphia’s WPVI.

“We were just happy to be able to help,” Boyce, an operations shift supervisor and a 27-year veteran at Braskem America, told The Washington Post. “We’ve been getting messages on social media from nurses, doctors, EMS workers, saying thank you for what we’re doing. But we want to thank them for what they did and are continuing to do. That’s what made the time we were in there go by quickly, just being able to support them.”

Join us today in commemorating the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Croatia's Jesenovac death camp — April 22, 1945.

May we never forget that 80% of #Croatia's Jews were murdered under the brutal rule of the pro-Nazi Croatian Ustasha government. The majority of Croatia's Jews were murdered at the Jasenovac death camp - the #Auschwitz of the Balkans.

Jews, Serbs, Roma and other targeted groups from all age groups were killed at the #Jasenovac death camp.

In the year 2020, the world is noticing the resurgence of anti-Semitism and Holocaust revisionism fueled by Croatia's politicians and extremist groups within the diaspora communities located in America, Canada, Europe, Australia and Latin America.

The Wall Street Journal highlights a new book - “No Surrender” by Chris Edmonds, advisory board member of the International Leaders Summit!

An excerpt from the book review:

Fortunately, his father kept a wartime diary, albeit one that was often short on details. But the elder Edmonds, who died in 1985 just shy of his 66th birthday, had jotted down the names of men who’d served with him. Online research eventually leads Chris Edmonds to, among others, Lester Tanner (formerly Tannenbaum), a New York lawyer who tells Mr. Edmonds at their first meeting: “What your father did at Ziegenhain is one of the most remarkable things I’ve ever witnessed—it is the defining moment of my life. And, Chris, I should tell you, I believe your father is deserving of the Congressional Medal of Honor.” What follows is a first-class biography, from Roddie Edmonds’s childhood in Knoxville, Tenn., to the POW camp outside Ziegenhain, Germany, to a brief exploration of his life after the war.

It was at Ziegenhain that Edmonds’s acts of courage saved the lives of countless American POWs. A devout Christian who in his captivity relied on his faith for strength and resolve, Edmonds prevented the Germans from identifying the Jewish prisoners among them—men like Mr. Tanner and others—for dispatch to harsher forced-labor camps. As the prisoners were called into formation and the Jews ordered to step forward, Edmonds told the German commanding officer, “We are all Jews here.” The major drew his Luger from its holster and pressed the barrel against Edmonds’s forehead. “Sergeant, one last chance,” he said, according to the accounts of Edmonds’s surviving comrades. “You will order the Jews to step forward or I will shoot you right now.” After a long pause, Edmonds said, “Major, you can shoot me, but you’ll have to kill all of us—because we know who you are—and you will be tried for war crimes when we win this war. And you will pay.”

When Patton’s Third Army was on the doorstep of the camp in late March 1945, Edmonds again defied the Germans and their plan to move the POWs deeper into Germany and away from liberation. Edmonds told the men to make themselves sick by eating dirt and grass. Many of his fellow soldiers had lost 40 or 50 pounds on starvation rations and could barely walk from weakness and other maladies. Edmonds knew that the forced march would kill them. The Germans, again, had no other choice but to capitulate. “Finally the old German colonel came down and threw up both hands,” Edmonds wrote in his diary, “and said we had won and could have the camp. He was leaving.”

Edmonds’s “sense of duty, responsibility, and devotion to the soldiers under his command went far beyond his own personal safety,” recalls Paul Stern, an Army combat medic who was one of the Jewish POWs saved by Edwards. “All the American prisoners at the camp were saved due to his outstanding courage.”

It’s a very moving story that Chris Edmonds and his co-author, Douglas Century, draw from a combination of Roddie’s diary and the eyewitness accounts of other survivors. In 2015 Roddie Edmonds’s name was added to Israel’s list of Righteous Among the Nations, “non-Jews who,” according to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Center, “took great risks to save Jews during the Holocaust.” All that’s missing now is his Medal of Honor.

The Wall Street Journal's Yaroslav Trofimov writes:

"Meanwhile, international institutions, the supposed repositories of moral authority in the world of yesterday, have either discredited themselves or have proved mostly irrelevant. The World Health Organization is under fire for praising the Chinese government’s handling of the crisis, for declaring in mid-January that there was no evidence of human-to-human transmission of the virus (by then rapidly spreading in Wuhan) and for its subsequent delay in declaring a pandemic."

Report: An interesting graph which illustrates that America has done a much better job of slowing the virus' spread than virtually every other country.

"The media is spending so much time these days is trying to pin blame on someone for the coronavirus deaths. A lot of people have died, it’s true. But we don't have to be so hard on ourselves. For many reasons, the U.S. is faring substantially better than Western European nations."

Excerpt from WSJ - Holman W. Jenkins, Jr. —

Sweden is a “high trust” society, which explains why its competitive economy can coexist with an extensive welfare state. People trust each other not to abuse handouts; citizens trust their government to use tax dollars efficiently in supplying services such as housing, child care and higher education that citizens might otherwise get from the market.

A high-trust society, it turns out, also allows Swedes to get by with less government when it comes to social distancing. Sweden has banned crowds and bar service, and has tried to protect the elderly and vulnerable. But otherwise it has expected business owners and their customers to decide how best to deal with the virus.
The U.S. is low-trust society, befitting a big, diverse, rambunctious country, operating under a federalized system of government, and with a strong taste for individualism.

New York, in a sense, represents an attempt to impose high-trust government on a low-trust population. More than 40% of residents rely on Medicaid, nearly a third of whom may be ineligible on income grounds, according to a recent study. Former Mayor Mike Bloomberg might even say they further abuse the privilege by not looking after their health. (His bans of smoking, trans fats and Big Gulps were framed at the time partly as solicitude for the taxpayer.)

The cost of these “comorbidities” that so worried Mayor Bloomberg is now proving high in the coronavirus crisis. New York is also rife with another kind of diversity less found in Sweden: Some 800 languages are spoken in Queens alone; many residents live in high-risk multigenerational households.

In Sweden, more than half of households are one-person households, the obesity rate is almost 40% less than America’s, and their cultural affinities make it more likely they will hear and heed social directives.

One size doesn’t fit all. That lesson should also guide us in seeking a way out of our nuclear-winter approach to fighting the virus. Sweden’s experiment is still unfolding. Its death tally has been ticking up, but that may reflect the fact that Sweden can permit a faster spread because its hospital capacity is holding up.

Which brings us to a key point. Don’t believe those who claim Sweden’s approach is “radical.” Sweden is following the same flatten-the-curve strategy the U.S. and other countries are pursuing, aiming to control the infection rate to manage demand on its health-care system. It’s just doing so with rather more frankness about what the existence of a “curve” implies: Most citizens can still expect to be exposed to the virus in the year or two before a vaccine might become available.

Sweden, as a result, has been readily dumped on by the kind of critics who have failed to provide their own societies with a realistic lockdown endgame. Sweden, under its Social Democratic Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, has been an easy punching bag, but the real problem is public figures elsewhere who haven’t been candid with their citizens: Even when we have much better testing, we won’t really have a way of stopping the virus while still having an economy.

It doesn’t help that many pundits, news people and politicians are in the age group that arguably needs to be protected from the virus. Naturally, they find it hard to say that others should expect to be infected. I could name a certain business-channel commentator (and you could too) who is especially tangled up in this issue since he is smart enough to know that the alternative is laying waste to America and its economy.

When it’s all over, academics will look seriously at how the lockdown strategy compares with alternative strategies (not the mythical “do nothing” strategy). They will ask how much of our apparent curve-flattening to date was due to individuals taking precautions, how much to heavy-handed government intervention. How many lives (and, more realistically, years of life) were really saved by our efforts? How much of our apparent success came from overestimating the potential burden on health care in the first place?

Our indiscriminate shutdowns may eventually seem perverse for requiring the least and most vulnerable to shoulder equally the risk of the virus’s spread. This will certainly be so if we end up admitting the virus was always destined to become an endemic and recurrent feature of the epidemiological landscape. The strategy that made some sense for America’s biggest city may have made little sense elsewhere. One thing we can be pretty sure of: Under pressure of a fast-evolving crisis, many decisions will turn out to have been fairly bad.
