from the Daily Caller:

Top WHO Official Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus Won Election With China’s Help. Now He’s Running Interference For China On Coronavirus

SWITZERLAND-HEALTH-VIRUS-WHO

World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus won his 2017 election with China’s backing.

  • Tedros is now providing cover for China’s propaganda campaign denying responsibility for the outbreak.
  • Tedros praised China’s “transparency” and said China’s response to the virus was a model for other nations, though China tried to cover up the virus’s outbreak and silenced whistleblowers.
  • Tedros is the first-ever WHO chief not to be a medical doctor and was accused of covering up three different cholera epidemics as Ethiopia’s health minister.

Video Podcast – Cashless due to Covid-19 – I Agree with Michael Moore

by: Brent Smith

It seems the coronavirus is not only forcing people into quarantine, but money too.

China has begun quarantining dirty cash, and sanitizing it, fearing that cash can also spread the virus. Our own Federal Reserve is following suit for dollars that it repatriates from Asia before recirculating them in the US financial system.

This may lead us to become cashless, which is dangerous for a free society.

Michael Moore is claiming that the democrat hack establishment is once again preventing his man, Bernie Sanders, from obtaining the party nomination.

And he’s right – and that scares me. Not that a communist is being denied the nomination, but that I agree with Michael Moore. read more

Don’t Panic Over Coronavirus – Lessons Learned

from the Federalist:

8 Valuable Lessons From China About How To Contain The Coronavirus

Freedom of expression and a free press are essential to everyone’s health and safety. That’s the most valuable lesson we should take away from the coronavirus epidemic.

The recent coronavirus outbreak, which sprouted within China in December, has now stagnated the world’s second-largest economy for more than a month. Since then, the virus has spread to more than 50 countries across six continents, all except Antarctica. The World Health Organization declared the virus a “global threat” and urged countries to prepare.

The medical journal JAMA published a paper last week, titled “Characteristics of and Important Lessons From the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Outbreak in China.” Its data was based on the 72,314 cases reported by Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Since China has the largest number of infected patients and death, this paper provides some valuable insights and lessons. read more

China May be the Worst of Communism

Not that there’s a best, but if one were to have to choose a “worst” communist nation, China should top the list. And this is just in general – the coronavirus not withstanding.

from the American Spectator:

The Fourth Reich

China is the world champion at “cancel culture.” Only when the communist tyranny cancels you, you aren’t just hounded off social media or pushed out of a job in the media or academia. You are literally canceled; executed, organ harvested, imprisoned, forced into a concentration camp, or excluded from all social participation in society.

The targets of this despotism are primarily religious believers — Falun Gong, Uyghur Muslims, and, most recently, Christians. Millions have been victimized by these vicious pogroms in recent years — and it appears the persecution has just gotten started. read more

Coronavirus Source May Have Been Found

Early DNA analysis points to snakes being the animal species that harbored the virus responsible for the current coronavirus outbreak before it jumped to humans
Early DNA analysis points to snakes being the animal species that harbored the virus responsible for the current coronavirus outbreak before it jumped to humans

A newly published article in the Journal of Medical Virology is reporting the first results of a genetic study into the DNA of the novel coronavirus currently spreading across the globe. The research suggests the new virus may have originated in snakes, which were known to be sold at the animal market in Wuhan where the outbreak began. read more

Another Corporation Bows to Its Chinese Master

Kowtowing to China, Blizzard Style

Corporate wokeness is a sham that collapses in the face of actual tyranny

“Every voice matters,” according to Activision-Blizzard; that is, unless you use that voice to show support for Hong Kong.

Hong Kong-based professional video game player Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai learned this the hard way when he said the words, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times” following his win at the Hearthstone Grandmasters tournament in Taiwan. Blizzard banned him in response.

Chung was quickly silenced. Activision-Blizzard, the publisher of HearthstoneOverwatch, and Call of Duty, cut off the interview and scrubbed the recording. The company fired both of the casters responsible for interviewing Chung, rescinded his prize money, and banned him from the professional circuit for a year. read more

China and North Korea aren’t the Only Ones with Big Scary Missiles

US Military Tests ICBM Hours After Beijing Parades Missiles Through Tiananmen Square

Mere hours after the latest missile test by North Korea and Beijing’s parading of its ICBM arsenal through Tiananmen Square during the 70th anniversary celebration of Communist Party rule, the US military decided to carry out a missile test of its own on Wednesday, testing an unarmed Minuteman III ICBM.

The Minuteman was launched from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California at 1:13 am Pacific Time. The missile, which was equipped with a ‘reentry vehicle’, traveled 6,750 kilometers across the Pacific Ocean before touching down on the Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, according to the Air Force Global Strike Command.

A photo of the test shows the missile in a brilliant purple hue.

Conservatives – Tow the Line or Risk it All

The Invisible Shackles of America’s Social Credit System.

China’s social credit system is coming to America, but Big Tech is enforcing it.

The phrase “social credit system” or “social credit score” is relatively unknown to Americans. But in the People’s Republic of China, the communist government has been developing such a system for the last decade, and are looking to roll it out nationwide by 2020.

The Chinese government intends to use social media data, surveillance, and purchasing trends to develop a “score” for its citizens to gauge their “buy-in” to the state. Presumably, the better the score, the more “benefits” citizens are entitled to receive from the government. Conversely, a bad score would severely handicap your life, punishing you for your socially maladaptive behavior, either real or perceived. read more
