OPINION: In search of Leadership

 
333Views 7Comments Posted 14/04/2021

Although there is still a long way to go to return to normality —even if it is a new one— the country seems to be starting to move its paralyzed gears as regards economic activity. But everything indicates that it is the product of inertia and not of a well-planned reactivation.

 The Government continues to improvise, a behavior that has been consistent throughout the pandemic. The Health Ministry has now turned its effort into the mass vaccination campaign, while the rest of the officials seem to contemplate what doctors and nurses do. The Government must strengthen the dialogue with private companies to analyze solutions, and plans, in order to facilitate economic reactivation. The private sector is an important provider of funds - through multiple taxes - to execute government plans, but officials seem to have ignored this fact. The new slogan is for himself who can, because here there is no policy, plan, consensus, line, purpose or idea that sets the course to follow. It is evident that the lack of authority is the one that traces the courses of this new normality. Never before has the country needed so much national leadership and never before has it been so absent. – LA PRENSA, Apr. 14

Too late La Prensa. This so called leader ( dictators of socialism and jailing is better) destroyed my whole business here in Panama. I will never come back not for a weekend no nothing. The trust is gone. Cortizo and his "sendero luminoso: made their chaos. Chinese people are overtaking the country. and all this for a virus who was declared as dangerous. ( and that cames through by countless lockdowns) So long Panama you never can bother me again.

Panama: Premature Guess Work on Vaccine Predictions. Vaccines are not...ALL...equal, and some can produce blood clots and other side effects. Promising one is a vaccine...MODERNA. Two weeks ago, I George Klk (some privacy) got my first shot... Top's Friendly Supermarket! I actually called to state... I got the Coronavirus; it's supposed to protect me! I was actually kidding with an exaggeration, but I was still in disbelief I ever got vaccinated. If this was another type of vaccine, I may have regretted it, but it shows the... United States can produce an effective vaccine in the state of New York, U.S.A. and other states. The world is not getting this vaccine from the U.S. until the it takes care of its own first. China and Russia's vaccines are dubious in their attempt to befriend the world with their crap. As if they really care about quality of life other than their zealous power grab for fame. Global political perspective requires what works and does not work and make the factual distinctions regarding nations participations in this common effort to save mankind. China started this horrendous global mankiller and makes a losing face ineffective vaccine! China cannot even think about mankind global matters other than military superiority at the expense of U.S. technology and innovations China...the copycat coward bandits of frontline hypocrisy!

This is DAMN scary but I have to thank them for their honesty at least! Of course this is what the millions of the brightest doctors and scientists warned. It is getting worse and worse by the day who were injected in this experiment! | UK gov’t. predicts ‘third wave’ of COVID deaths ‘dominated’ by those who are vaccinated ‘This is not the result of vaccines being ineffective, merely uptake being so high,’ the government agency argued. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/uk-govt-predicts-third-wave-of-covid-deaths-dominated-by-those-who-are-vaccinated

Is the freedom of all the people in the world more important that the safety of a group of “propagandized sheeple” (no matter it’s size)? You’re damn right it is!

I would add to Mhogans thoughts lets not forget the destructive WEF Klaus Shwab behind this purposeful destruction of the economy it is going as they planned. The fastest way out of this mess is to eliminate the nonessential. nonessential is most of the government. They have proven their inept actions or purposeful actions have destroyed everything. They have deemed so many businesses nonessential it is time for those businesses to deem most of government who created this entire problem nonessential. It is time business get on with business and ignore the endless edicts of nonessential non-leaders who did nothing more than overreact, overreach and cause substantial destruction to everything they touched. They could have simply provided known treatments this would have ended and life did not have to resort to dystopianism and destruction we know now through global studies imprisoning people caused more death, more suffering and more destruction than staying open. The way out is by modeling success. When you look at just two locations that did not destroy their society it shows the path forward was to take the advice of science and doctors instead of NON DOCTORS such as both the leader of WHO and MINSA, both are NOT MEDICAL DOCTORS AND FEW KNOW THIS BUT THEY ARE SETTING DESTRUCTIVE POLICY. GOV. DESANTIS AND 4 DOCTORS CALL OUT LOCKDOWNS AS USELESS AND HARMFUL https://www.bitchute.com/video/5y5U39vqicBe/ No mandatory masking, no endless imprisonment, no destroying people, jobs and business compare that success to the lies, fraud and destruction of California and New York as well as most countries part of the WEF great reset scam! It is obvious which approach worked but covidFREAKS are mentally ill cannot handle the truth that imprisoning people is destructive and masks are making people more sick. This news report shows Florida approach *** The country of Nicaragua never instituted a lockdown, never required masks, and yet crushed the Corona virus? They are in Central America and can be used to document clearly the correct path forward is for government to get the HELL OUT OF THE WAY OF THE PEOPLE AS THEY HAVE SHOWN THEMSELVES TO BE NONESSENTIAL! https://youtu.be/0mFGOFQd97Y | 180 deaths https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/nicaragua/ | These videos show Nicaragua is living normally and people are NOT dying and dropping dead everywhere as the covidFREAKS believe wrongly. By the way they have free public health in Nicaragua for all including tourists!

Can’t speak to the current leadership but do agree a country does better with a strong one. The picture with this article correctly depicts what is needed—someone willing to step out of the line dictated by world organizations and put his/her country first. One who understands not only local corruption but of worldwide as well and is willing to stand free of both and to let its people see with transparency that the evil of corruption will not be tolerated. The health of the Panama economy and of its people must come before powerful international forces like BigPharm, the WHO, the UN, even powerful domestic powers. The people are what is important ... always. Don’t restrict business activity and enforce mask wearing because Fauci says so — educate the people and offer choice; don’t order jabs because Big Pharm’s profits need replenishing — look to see if they’re even needed and are truly as safe as purported (they’re not—safety trials won’t be complete for another 2 years)—so what to do meantime: take patient care locally with known prevention and treatment modalities in first 2 days of onset (there’s ample evidence they work); don’t go along with apartheid-leaning health passports because everyone else is doing it. Stand apart! Lead bravely and with purpose. Accept that leaders in the US—like diSantos and others who defy in favor of individual freedom — are actually onto something. Take on Corruption — clean up your house!
