… and, winter is coming. China, already in a significant energy crunch, has been experiencing energy shortages due to extreme weather, a surge in demand, and a fledgling effort to reduce CO2 emissions. It is a triple whammy for the country that produces the second-highest global greenhouse emissions in the...

A couple of days ago, alleged congressperson Marjorie Taylor Greene sent a letter to Joe Biden. I read it; you don’t have to. Unless you read at a third-grade level or worse, it might be hard for you to follow. It essentially boils down to “Wuhan lab … Chinese-made virus...

Carnage could be a permanent condition, but Trump made it a brand. Between April 10, 2020 and January 3, 2021, Donald Trump either tweeted (or retweeted) the term “China Virus” 44 times. Like Trump’s claim of a “bad” flu for COVID, the coincidence was many times worse amid a population experiencing...

Ying Ma is a conservative Chinese American who’s been appearing on Fox lately to hype her theory that liberals only became interested in anti-Asian violence when they could use it to smear Donald Trump—who, frankly, doesn’t really need anyone to smear him as it’s already impossible to suss out where...

Marjorie Taylor Green, unburdened by House committee work, should put a bit more time into her trolling banter.

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.

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.
