Trump personally owes China $211 Million and 55 days at Beijing-Biden remain

There’s a BeijingBiden website, but Trump seems to have decided not to use this insult in speeches, leaving that meme to surrogates and media bottom-feeders. The meme was important to the Trump campaign in April, but since China “prefers” Biden, no amount of “China Virus” can offset Americans’ awareness of an impending and avoidable quarter-million death…

Russia and China at Odds Over Trump, Iran Too.

It’s long been obvious that Putin favors Trump and wants to keep him in the White House where he can continue to destroy the United States, both because we’ve been blocking Russia’s ambitions and because Putin wants revenge for the breakup of the Soviet Union and other things we may or may not have done….

Peter Navarro: 'We're all tired of this politicization of the China virus'

Peter Navarro, the Trump administration trade adviser whom Jared Kushner found on Amazon.com (the same place I’ve been vainly searching for a one-bedroom tauntaun carcass to hide in for the next four years in case Trump somehow wins again) wants y’all to stop politicizing the, erm, China virus, folks! This morning, he was on Fox &…

China May Interfere in Our Election – Against Russia

Two stories on the news tonight: First is that Joe Biden put out a statement tonight warning foreign governments, and Russia in particular, that if  they try to interfere with our November election, they will pay a heavy price for doing so. (Assuming Biden wins in spite of their interference.) Second story is that China…

Bolton says Trump told China to “Make sure I win”

Reading the Bolton book is a tough slog. although it is amusing to read how he wanted to settle scores including obliquely allowing Rex Tillerson to call Nikki Haley a c***. If there’s a takeaway so far, it is how badly edited it is, and how absent any consideration of national policy other than pushing…

Lincoln Project hits Trump on China

perhaps as a pushback at the Trump campaign running an ad (including on MS-NBC) against Biden on China. This one is apparently slotted for CNN. Take a look: x YouTube Video And by the way, the ad hits Ivanka as well. And its official title is “Chyna”.

Trump, WHO, and China: A Timeline

I often find, in history as well as in current events, that having a timeline can be very useful in sorting out just what happened and when, and for judging claims made later on. It is, unfortunately, impossible to do a full timeline on Trump’s mishandling, misadministration, and maladministration of the Covid-19 pandemic in a…

Italian COVID-19 death toll passes China's

The death toll in Italy from the coronavirus has overtaken China's in a stark illustration of how the outbreak has pivoted toward Europe and the United States. “Italy has world's second oldest population, 87% of those killed by COVID-19 are over 70”. Italy’s population is 4% of China’s. There will be waves in this pandemic, expected to last 18 months…
