China is licking its chops for a slice of Tajikistan — and a side of Japan

By David Archibald

In 2011, Tajikistan ceded 1,000 square kilometers of territory to China in return for some debt forgiveness. In July this year, an article in Chinese news outlets claimed that Tajikistan’s Pamir Mountains historically belonged to China and should be returned. That article unsettled the Tajik government.

How much territory is involved? An easy way to find out is to look up China’s borders on Google Earth and Google Maps. Google is infested with Chinese employees whose greatest loyalty is to their motherland….

Why we’re still arguing about hydroxychloroquine

August 7, 2020 – 3:44 PM

.

The battle over hydroxychloroquine began as a kind of trivial but apparently earnest and hopeful celebrity endorsement of the drug (the celebrity being President Trump). It has devolved into a real political and public-discourse horror show.

Perpetual back-and-forths between those prominent doctors who do not believe in the drug’s effectiveness — coronavirus task force members Anthony Fauci and Brett Giroir are two — and dissident, lesser-known doctors, such as Harvey Risch of Yale University, have given birth to serious questions about how truly scientific the whole conversation has been.

Can hydroxychloroquine be used effectively to treat COVID-19….?

Gingrich: We’re Seeing the ‘Dumbing Down of America for Three Generations’

“…I think what you’re seeing is the dumbing down of America for three generations, you’re seeing left-wing indoctrination and literally groupthink,” he said. “I do a podcast, and I talk about shut your mouth. There’s an entire series on where the left has told us, say what they want or else. I really think the time has come to take back the schools and to take back the universities. And I think that a lot of governors, frankly, aren’t doing their job when they allow public universities to be run by people who are radically anti-American….”

7-year-old boy in Georgia died ‘from COVID-19’?

Media leaving out key details

EXCERPT:

…So it seems that the boy died not “from COVID-19,” but rather as the result of a seizure and a fall in the shower.  It seems that, prior to his death, the child had zero Wuhan virus symptoms….

…I don’t know about you, but I’ve followed the news and the science on this virus as closely as most anyone, and I have yet to hear any reports of the Wuhan virus causing seizures….

Bad medicine: Fauci’s HCQ Waterloo

Dr. Anthony Fauci has been hailed in the press as the nation’s top infectious disease expert.  He’s been feted with presidential honors and high praise for his medical acumen.  His policy disagreements with President Trump, supposedly as the voice of “science,” have made him a hero on the left.  Such laurels and the implied power conveyed have led to some weird side-effects — such as his image featured on ladies’ underwear and declarations that he’s the sexiest man alive.

He’s still being posterized on the left with calls to “Thank Dr. Fauci.”  Here’s one:


Screenshot, banner ad.

But it’s about time this idol topples, based on this summary about Fauci’s startlingly bad medicine and bad medical policy on COVID, which has in fact cost thousands of lives.  And yes, he is very specifically to blame.

Virologist Steven Hatfill, writing in RealClearPolitics, summed up just how disastrous Fauci has been for America’s COVID response, based on Fauci’s suppression of evidence about hydroxychloroquine, the safest and most effective treatment for COVID based on all reputable studies, and the political power he’s used to halt its treatment even as the rest of the world got well from the inexpensive medication’s use…..

DeBlasio’s plan to destroy New York City is working wonderfully

By Andrea Widburg

The downward slide that started when De Blasio assumed the mayor’s office has become a freefall this summer, a casualty of De Blasio’s waltz with the Wuhan virus. As Monica Showalter has written, Governor “Killer” Cuomo, whose policies slaughtered thousands of elderly people in nursing homes, and Mayor “Trotsky” de Blasio, who’s systematically driving out the rich, are engaged in a power struggle with a hapless New York City caught between these two leftist narcissists.

Cuomo is still sufficiently connected to reality to try to stem the outflow of the city’s super-rich, who are responsible for 50% of NYC’s tax base. The mayor, however, is saying the equivalent of ‘good riddance to bad rubbish.’ When he says he doesn’t like rich people, de Blasio isn’t kidding….

…If you want to see what one of America’s finest cities looks like under the tender loving care of a hardcore Marxist, you have to check out the photographs in this Daily Mail article.

People have called de Blasio incompetent, but he’s not. His governance is entirely in line with his ideology – and his ideology is what is now powering the Biden campaign.

Everyone knows that Biden will not be president even if he wins. Instead, the country will be run by people aligned with Bernie’s openly communist policies — people just like de Blasio. New York, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco – with each of these cities, you’re getting a sneak preview of the American future the Democrat party has planned for the rest of us….

Revolutions tend to devour their own, but rarely has this happened as swiftly, publicly, and predictably as it did with Portland’s overpraised “Wall of Moms.”

The brainchild of a suburban Mexican-American woman named Beverly Barnum, the group was loosely organized among other moms on Facebook who were incensed that President Trump had dispatched federal officers to Portland to protect the federal courthouse that had become the main target of three-months-long protests in the city. Wearing yellow T-shirts and linking arms, the Moms created a “wall” between federal officers and Black Lives Matter protestors in July, chanting “Feds stay clear. Moms are here!” and calling themselves “Momtifa.”

Not surprisingly, the moms became instant media darlings. Barnum and others gave emotional interviews to reporters, and outlets like National Public Radio swooned over the women as brave symbols of motherhood and activism—contrasting sharply with the officers Trump had stationed around the courthouse. Sen. Ron Wyden called them “courageous” and copycat groups like Wall of Vets, Wall of Dads, Wall of Doctors — again, self-identified—also joined the Moms in downtown Portland….

DHS Exposes the Horrible Truth About Violent Antifa Riots in Portland

8/8/2020, 7:02:50 PM · by rktman · 1 replies

pjmedia.com ^ | 8/8/2020 | Tyler O’Neil
(NO search results)Friday marked the 70th consecutive night of violent antifa riots in Portland. Early this month, the rioters shifted the focus of their violent attacks from the federal courthouse in downtown Portland to the Penumbra Kelly police building in a residential neighborhood. Since the clashes no longer center on federal property and federal law enforcement, the Democratic narrative of excusing or ignoring the violence in order to demonize federal officers and President Donald Trump has fallen apart. But myths about the federal involvement persist. (see below in comments)

The words “mostly peaceful protest” are so common in media these days they’re practically a mantra. They’re used no matter what the situation is on the ground in any given location. Libs feel righteous and justified when they say it or write it because they are fighting the evil fearmongers who unfairly dislike riots, you see, so the actual facts are less important than the spirit or gist of the message

The Severity of COVID-19 Now Depends on Your State’s Politics

Townhall.com ^ | August 8, 2020 | Jay Shepard
If we have learned anything from the coronavirus, it’s that science and statistics are now political. What is now considered science is based on the feelings of those using it. While the average American may see little merit in weighing the politics of each state as the world contends with a global pandemic, the media care for nothing else. Indeed, the media first look at the political affiliation of local officials before evaluating the COVID-19 response success.  The media then uses their own bias-based prism for evaluation, ignoring empirical evidence. Their coverage depicts Democrat-run states as logical and resilient, while…

Homeless men are seen brazenly sharing swigs of liquor without masks and urinating on the street outside luxury Upper West Side hotels – as it’s revealed New York ‘illegally housed pedophiles next to playgrounds’ in the neighborhood

Residents of Manhattan’s Upper West Side are again raising safety concerns about the hundreds of homeless people being housed by the city in three luxury hotels there, after groups were spotted drinking and urinating, and records revealed that six convicted pedophiles appear to have been illegally housed near an elementary-school playground. On Friday evening, several rowdy groups were spotted openly drinking and carousing near 79th Street and Broadway, not far from three of the hotels where the city is housing homeless people for $175 per person each night. Among the hotels on the city’s list are The Belleclaire, The Lucerne…

This smells like big time election interference to me… Why are the Chinese making so many fake U.S. driver’s licenses? That’s a disturbing little tidbit to discover, especially right before an election. According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the bulk of these fake U.S. IDs flooding into the country come from China and Hong Kong, with the rest coming in from South Korea and the U.K. Officials in Chicago just confiscated a shipment of these fake IDs totaling nearly 20 thousand counterfeit cards. Of course, the local news media in Chicago doesn’t see a connection to “voter fraud,” but…

Facebook removes QAnon conspiracy group with 200,000 members

8/7/2020, 10:24:57 PM · by MNDude · 10 replies

QAnon is a wide-ranging, unfounded conspiracy theory that a “deep state” network of powerful government, business and media figures are waging a secret war against Donald Trump. A Facebook spokeswoman said the group was removed for “repeatedly posting content that violated our policies”. Last month both Twitter and TikTok also cracked down on QAnon content. Twitter banned thousands of accounts and said it would block QAnon urls, while TikTok deleted hashtags that signposted QAnon videos. The deleted Facebook group, called Official Q/Qanon, had nearly 200,000 members. There are, however, many other QAnon groups that are currently still active on the…

In a letter of August 7, 2020, Bishop Jaime Soto of the Diocese of Sacramento has announced that “Fr.

Some bad breath just can’t be covered up. Now that dentists have reopened their doors, they’re having patients show up with a nasty set of symptoms, which the doctors have dubbed “mask mouth.” The new oral hygiene issue — caused by, you guessed it, wearing a mask all the time to prevent the spread of the coronavirus — is leading to all kinds of dental disasters like decaying teeth, receding gum lines and seriously sour breath.

A massive sunspot on the Sun is turning towards our planet and this could result in strong solar flares. The sunspot AR2770 was detected earlier this week and is expected to grow in size in the upcoming days. A report by SpaceWeather.com – a space weather forecasting website – said that multiple minor flares have been emitted by the sunspot already as it faced towards the earth. These flares have caused “minor waves of ionization to ripple through Earth’s upper atmosphere” but nothing major yet. A clear picture of the AR2770 has also surfaced that gives a better idea into…

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield acknowledged during a House hearing Friday that COVID-19 data could be inflated because hospitals receive a monetary gain by reporting COVID-19 cases. Republican Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer of Missouri questioned Redfield during a House Oversight and Reform subcommittee hearing on coronavirus containment. He asked about the “perverse incentive” for hospitals to classify deaths as being coronavirus related when the virus didn’t cause the death. Luetkemeyer voiced concern about how an automobile accident-related death could be recorded as a COVID-related death. In this scenario, the death was recorded as COVID-related because the…

Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best reacted to the Seattle City Council’s approval of an amendment aimed at further defunding the police department by slashing the pay of Best and 12 members of the Seattle Police Department (SPD) command staff, questioning why the city would not want to fairly compensate the “best of the best.”

“Yeah, I’m not sure that’s legal to do. So, obviously we’ll be looking at that,” Best told KOMO News on Thursday of the proposed cuts. “But I will talk about my command staff, myself aside.”

Jon Rappoport Is Really Thomas Paine? Quelle ressemblance!

Salvador Dali, 1935: “Surrealism in its first period offered specific methods for approaching the images of concrete irrationality. These methods, based on the exclusively passive and receptive role of the surrealist subject, are now in liquidation and giving place to new surrealist methods of systematic exploration of the irrational.”

For example, a worldwide pandemic based on a virus no one discovered.

(To join our email list, click here.)

I’m all for peace, but against forced pacification. I also favor reporting on the surreal when it’s all around us.

Rioters burning buildings while wearing masks. Which masks? Anti-COVID or anti-identification? And if an obedient pod person wearing a bandana over his face wandering the empty streets of New York suddenly overflows with some unnamed impulse and throws a garbage can through a plate glass window, can he be doubly prosecuted for concealing his identity? Or is his sentence mitigated because he was following the governor’s mask directive?

I understand why people are wearing masks, but WHY ARE THEY WEARING THEM, if you catch my drift. Especially, when you’re in a store and they’re all around you in the flesh. WHAT IS THIS? A fashion show? A new kind of Pride parade? Are they all having the same hallucination….?

Exit From The Matrix: Free Individual vs. Deep State

by Jon Rappoport

The people who run society are engaged in bringing systems and structures into interlocking alignment, in order to create larger and larger machines of control.

I keep returning to this territory, because the whole thrust of modern civilization is making the individual extinct.

Powerless, badly educated, adrift in technology, viewed as a unit tied to a massive collective—this is the picture of the individual.

Let’s go back to square one. The individual is fundamentally at odds with the State. The State wants control. The State wants loyalists, adherents, joiners, conformists. The individual wants freedom, if he has any inkling of his own power.

The basic makeup of the State is promoted as a We. We want this. We need this. We deserve this. We all agree on this. The ubiquitous We is floated on purpose. The aim is to eradicate the I. The individual.

The State wants all arguments to center on what We should get. Should We be given this or that? Should We have A or B? What is best for We?

This is where all the trouble starts….
