MSM China Hysteria Gets Way Crazier And Dumber

Hysteria about China has been kicked into high gear by the political/media class who are responsible for manufacturing support for the cold war escalations which will be necessary to prevent the US from being surpassed on the world stage as a unipolar superpower.

Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro has aired a fire-and-brimstone monologue on China that looks like a fictional news clip from some kind of film noir-style movie adaptation of a really ham-fisted dystopian graphic novel. It really needs to be seen to be believed, so give it a view here when you get a chance:

“China is the one that’s out of control,” Pirro spat, punching the word ‘China’ like she was speaking a profanity at someone she despises. “We’re not going to let you destroy this country or our way of life. We’ve fought too hard and we’ve fought too long to lose it to a Wuhan – that’s what I said, a WOO-HAN virus!”

“You want to control people? You politicians want to flex your muscles?” Pirro asked, referring to government lockdowns. “Well start working on how you’re gonna punish, ostracize, alienate, and financially sanction, and make China accountable for what they did to us and the rest of the world!”

It’s a legitimately scary segment with an unbelievable amount of vitriol, and Pirro isn’t the only Fox News pundit ramping up the anti-China hysteria.

Tucker Carlson recently had on “former” CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright to tell his massive audience about the danger posed by the Chinese menace, and pitched him a question clearly geared to set up Wright to claim without evidence that leaders of the Democratic Party may in fact be members of the Chinese intelligence agency MSS.

“We reached out to Senator Feinstein and a number of other elected officials today and asked ‘Have you had contact recently since the outbreak with Chinese officials?’, and not a single one responded. What do you think we should infer from that?” asked Carlson, who is known to have himself tried to join the CIA in the past.

“I think that they’re nervous,” Wright replied. “I think there are a bunch of people who, because they’re either useful idiots, or they have some degree of knowledge and and relationships behind the scenes with the Chinese government. Some of them in fact could be Chinese agents of the MSS, their intelligence service, God forbid. They’re nervous.”

“We’ve got a lot of very nervous folks in the Democratic Party,” Wright added.

This is easily as unhinged as even the most cartoonishly ridiculous Russia hysteria we’ve seen uncorked by Rachel Maddow or anyone on MSNBC, and is not at all different in tone or content; even the use of the term “useful idiots” is right in line with the same reprehensible Russiagate rhetoric we’ve been hearing for the last four years.

The claim that rival parties have been infiltrated by communists has a very long and ugly history in US politics, and now that it’s being weaponized by the American right wing in such a shameless way we can expect it to get a whole lot uglier.

Not to be outdone the Democrats are now working to out-Trump Trump, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding that Trump “swiftly begin implementing the Hong Kong Human Rights & Democracy Act”, and a new Biden campaign ad attacking the president for being too soft on China for its handling of the Covid-19 virus.

The ad attacks Trump for failing to force Beijing to allow US government officials into Wuhan to monitor the governing of a sovereign nation during a pandemic outbreak.

“Trump praised the Chinese 15 times in January and February as the coronavirus spread across the world,” says the ad’s narrator in a menacing voice. “Trump never got a CDC team on the ground in China. And the travel ban he brags about? Trump let in 40,000 travelers from China into America after he signed it. Not exactly airtight.”

Attacking Trump from the right on foreign policy has become standard practice for the Biden campaign, with whoever runs his account recently tweeting “Donald Trump says he’s a wartime president — it’s time for him to act like one.”

This is the guy that American progressives still say can be moved to the left? Hilarious.

It is never a good sign when the political/media class all across the aisle begins loudly trying to out-hawk one another about a nation which refuses to be absorbed into the US-centralized world order. And make no mistake, this is all this is actually about.

It’s not a coincidence that the two nations the US political/media class has been shrieking the loudest about lately are the two strongest nations which have refused to be absorbed into the US empire. It’s never been about “collusion” or a virus, it’s about stopping multipolarism. This has been obvious for years, but partisan narrative control masks it. More than two years ago I was writing about how Russiagate isn’t about Trump or even really just about Russia, but about hamstringing the Russia-China tandem to stop China’s rise.

Ever since the fall of the Soviet Union and the rise of neoconservatism, the prevailing orthodoxy in the US-centralized power alliance has been to preserve the unipolar world order at any cost. All US foreign policy has been a direct or indirect result of this agenda ever since.

It’s not about Covid-19. It’s not about Uighurs. It’s not about a Putin pee tape. It’s not about terrorists. It’s not about weapons of mass destruction. It’s about world domination, plain and simple. And the oligarch-owned political/media class who controls the dominant narrative is helping to facilitate that.

I never voted for a world order where one powerful government is constantly attacking, destroying and sabotaging any nation that threatens its hegemony. I’m pretty sure you never did either. And yet here we are, forced to accept this insane paradigm, even when the targeted nations in question are nuclear armed and anything could go drastically wrong at any moment as a result of miscommunication or technical malfunction in the heat and confusion of escalated aggression.

This will continue to be foisted upon us whether we like it or not, until this way of life is locked in forever, or until we all die in a nuclear holocaust, or until we force them to stop. It’s that third option that they are working to cut off during the rapid increases in government surveillance and internet censorship we’ve seen implemented during this pandemic, so we’re going to have to want to live a lot more than the empire does.

  • When one knows no “truth, objective”, the most outrageous lies will fly constantly. Neither side of “the government party” is rational, and no part of government is “of, for or by The People”, every aspect of it is aimed, weaponized, at “The People”, because we are an impediment to their “total control”, we cost too much, we are worth our skilled labor wages”, when it can all be “off-shored” to third world nations.
    The Oligarchs are unmatched for chutzpah, they believe they can have “America” with all its goodies, while having no middle class, only service jobs, and all skilled labor external, as if the “Nation, the actual infrastructure” is forever, needing no maintenance, just occupancy.
    Their world has a disconnect with reality, rational thinking, they have no thought of “chain of events, the careful building of infrastructure” including people, that supports a rational, progressing Country, much less a Nation. It’s as if they believe everything up to now, has been for the purpose of setting them in place, and they are “now, ready to assume control”, never mind, those who built current ways and means, intend to live among what they, we, have built and continue to maintain.
    Evil minds are not rational minds, and never will be. For all the evil, pointed at, by U.S. politicians, government, “U.S. Government and politicians” are miles ahead, tons of overburden, compared to the worst of other Countries, and not even qualifying as “a Nation”.
    If “We, The People” don’t rise up, throwing down this displayed evil, war intending government, it will collapse, and we will survive, as well as possible, in abject poverty. I suspect the “rest of the world” has moved far enough, we aren’t capable of controlling the future to any great extent, anymore.

  • While I share your ‘here we go again’ and boogieman du jour take aways from the ant-Chinese rhetoric, I do notice that the back and forth are leaving actual problems with China’s COVID-19 policies ignored.

    One such shocking example is the pogrom against diaspora Blacks/Africans in Guanzhou, China. Guanzhou is home to over 400,000 Blacks from around the world. Many are professionals and students. They have been targeted, thrown out of their apartments, not allowed to enter grocery stores, shops, even hospitals. This alarming situation has been going on for a while, ignored by the world. They are being blamed for bringing COVID-19 to the country! This is not a chafing against testing and quarantine. This is a targeting. The first to sound the alarm was the ex-pat Black community. Even the Los Angeles Times did a watered down story placating the Chinese response. Kudos to Al-Jezeera and some YouTube sites for getting the word out.

    I’m not an anti-Chinese hysteric. But this is wrong. There are millions of Chinese on the African continent and they are treated with respect. But the care for the people is not being reciprocated.

  • We are being taught to be afraid of each other and this is a deliberate strategy. Anxiety, anger, even the wearing of a mask, impairs our immunity according to Dr Judy Mikovits.
    In 2014 the U.S. Congress placed a moratorium on the weaponisation of the Corona virus through ‘gain of function’ technology being developed at the University of North Carolina. In 2015, Dr Anthony Fauci as Director of the NIH and in spite of objections, contravened this injunction and outsourced the work to the Wuhan laboratory in China, funding the ongoing research using U.S. taxpayer money. Fauci actually predicted a global viral pandemic in 2017 because he knew what was in the pipeline. If China is to blame for a failure of containment and for contributing financially to the research, the U.S. is not innocent in this outbreak.
    Covid-19 is not a naturally occurring virus, but a ‘super’ virus, containing protein inserts from the HIV and MERS viruses (see Nature Nov 12, 2015). However because it is an artefact of human engineering, it is also self-limiting or self-burning as Dr Rashid Buttar describes, doing its damage in the first few hours of infection. Infected people recover within 24 to 48 hours, unless they are immuno-compromised.
    The effectiveness of covid-19 in penetrating a human cell is greatly enhanced by electro-magnetic frequency exposure as explained by Dr Buttar. The significance of this is the correlation of the most serious outbreaks of the virus with places where 5G technology was being trialled at the time of outbreak, such as in Wuhan, Italy and Iran. This coincidence may be masking the noxious effects of 5G in addition to serious air pollution as attention is directed towards the ‘deadly’ virus and not the potentially more dangerous effects of 5G and the health impacts of pollution.
    There can be no vaccine for a man-made virus, but the vaccination roll-out for Covid-19 is already underway. We should be deeply suspicious about accepting this as a ‘solution’ to social isolation; and even more worried about new legislation being put forward in the UK to criminalize the questioning of vaccine safety or effectiveness, in speech or writing, and creating a dangerous precedent. This is a deeply troubling curtailment of freedom of speech and scientific investigation. Vaccines are in fact the ultimate weaponizing of viruses against humanity, because unless all kinds of poisonous elements are added to the viral molecule, the body will never mount an immune response.
    Viruses are not deadly by nature – they arise from within our own cells to meet the toxic challenges of living in a polluted world. They have been with us for millennia, keeping us in good health in synergy with millions of bacteria to contain, neutralize and eliminate the toxins that enter from outside or as a by-product of our own metabolism (our poo). Dr Thomas Cowan sees them as helpers, healers and messengers warning of communal danger in the environment. We have embraced a faulty theory of disease instead of seeking to understand health. The diseases we vaccinate our children against were almost non-existent due to improved standards of living ten years before vaccines were introduced. Ill-health has increased exponentially in the years since.

  • And the sad irony is that the US Government has imposed the authoritarian Chinese totalitarian police state model of government upon its citizens without a whisper of opposition. And now that the people of NYC and beyond are compelled to put on facemasks – in most cases useless against infection, but very useful in dehumanising and humiliating their wearers and imposing an obedient prison-style uniformity – some of us are beginning to grasp that we’ve actually embraced servitude and become a Chinese style authoritarian capitalist surveillance state, even though the science is now clear that Covid-19 is just the flu and nothing abnormal is happening at all.

    Will we ever learn? A seasonal flu was turned into the black plague by the use of mendacious models & puffed-up projections, and the media manufactured pandemonium became the pretext for a global medical fascist shutdown by the same multinational corporate interests that produced the mass hysteria. And we didn’t even fired a single shot. The way the matrix controllers have inverted reality to keep us bamboozled from cradle to grave with their carefully controlled mass decepetions is a truly staggering sight to behold.

    • Quite right. They have their panties in a wad because their 80% tyranny is not as successful as China’s 100% tyranny. Too bad their too stupid to realize that historically, 0% tyranny has out performed any level of tyranny by orders of magnitude. The less any gang of Sociopaths In Charge have impeded the free flow of commerce, whether by control of private commerce, or promotion of corporate commerce, the more fruitful an economy will be. Commerce is the issue the Sociopaths In Charge are concerned about, while their very actions create the problem that concerns them. So now they prepare us for war with China over the wildly exaggerated deaths caused by CV, while such war would cause the death of far more, if not the extinction of life on the planet. Well, they are after all insane.

    • The U.S. Constitution is likely to be administered for a course of years and then end in despotism… when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other. – Benjamin Franklin

    • You are right. And you are also in minority, sadly. Even here, in this forum, so many cheer for the lockdown, and attack people who oppose it, calling them irresponsible or moronic…

  • Here is what the US should have done even before the first virus cases were reported in the US. It is also what the US has to start doing TODAY as a get-out-of-virus jail strategy. This should have been an example for the rest of the world to emulate. We see the results of the US’s initial do-nothing, passover strategy.

  • Oh my god I love Roger Waters so much. (I’m trying not to put him on a pedestal, but it’s hard.) I think fans of Caitlin would enjoy this interview with him. He responds to a question on lesser-evil voting at about 24 minutes in. The words “fucking slimeball” were used.

  • All that bad stuff they are saying about China and democrats is all true and only the tip of the iceberg, and it’s nothing new, and the Mossad and Dick Cheney did 9/11 to US, and they are seemingly not worried or blithely unaware of that, and it was used as an excuse to murder millions of brown people living over the cheap to pump oil and opium-poppy fields.
    Of course Trump is an oaf, but he’s sort of breaking some of the stuff that needs to be broken, and he does have style.
    It’s called “Drunken Monkey” it’s a Kung Fu style. Dangerous and unpredictable. Watch your crotch.
    Weird stuff.
    The point I am trying to make is that the sociopaths who own and drive, and slaughter us, the herd of human cattle, are way way way more overtly evil and sadistic than I can say in print. All that “Pizzagate” stuff was one of the ways they bond intimately and gain trust in each other, because they share a deadly secret. Republican death merchants like the Bush family differ only in style.
    In the face of all of this X-rated-snuff-movie “leadership”, we have some degree of free will and remain completely responsible to assess the situation, look at past , present and future, and do our very best, right now, in this life, because it may be our last human life ever, even if we do our best.
    We can die without regrets if we do our best, though.
    Worth something…

  • President Putin saw this eventuality long ago, and predicted the dollars ultimate collapse, as a result of the worlds trade becoming too large and too diverse to be sustained on the slender back of the United States Fed. And because the world is no longer ready for the United States to be able to sanction it, willy-nilly, and at will. Please read this relevant article here:
    Revolutionary Times and Systemic Collapse – “The System Cannot Handle It” by Alastair Crooke!
    https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/04/20/revolutionary-times-and-systemic-collapse-the-system-cannot-handle-it/

  • Caitlin says it well, especially when she says things like: “Revolutionary thought is an act of faith.” But faith without action is not good enough. Caitlin often stated that politics is irrelevant and will not change anything. We need a genuine revolution with wise, effective, insightful, visionary leaders, generals, captains and lieutenants to inspire, guide and organize dissidents. Caitlin, who do you recommend as revolutionary leaders who are outside the political arena?

  • Right after reading this I got an email from Code Pink’s mailing list, asking me to sign a petition to Biden asking him to take down the ad.

    https://www.codepink.org/fightcovidnotchina

    I signed it, because I’m generally wanting to support Code Pink, and they are right of course, but I have the same ambivalence that I have when I write my congressman about anything. They are not going to respond to popular opinion by doing the right thing. There are only two responses I can expect:
    1) they ignore me (maybe along with a boilerplate gaslighting reply about how they totally feel what I feel), or
    2) they use my input to adjust their campaign lies to better hide their true intentions, similar to what Caitlin just wrote about Sanders trying to elicit a fake concession from Biden.

  • The United States government is way beyond ” Diabolical “; it is completely without any shame or remorse at all!
    Even though it accounts for just 4.2 percent of the worlds population, the United States has thirty percent of total Covid-19 cases thanks to Donald Trumps disastrous domestic response. That is better than seven times the global average. But now with an assist from European allies and ultra-hawkish allies in the corporate media, his administration is trying to drag others down by promoting pro-war policies that disrupt the international effort.
    Let us not forget that in war-ravaged countries, health systems have collapsed. Health professionals, already few in number, have often been targeted. Refugees and others displaced by violent conflict are doubly vulnerable. The fury of the virus illustrates the folly of war.”
    Please read this fine article here:
    Threat of Peace – Revised by Daniel Lazare!
    https://www.strategic-culture.org/news/2020/04/20/threat-of-peace-revised/

  • Quite interesting that even the absolutely abysmal U.S. mainstream media reported the fact that the coronavirus strain in Asia is not the same as the one in Europe and the U.S. (viruses evolve fast, so that could be one explanation), but have already forgotten that they did so. The United States of Amnesia, indeed! How to deal with a virus if you’re merrakin? First, you go to a rally toting a gun and a giant flag and hang out with your fellow zombies, and, second, you echo your “leaders’ ” call for war. Only of course you don’t plan on heading to war yourself. (Frankly, mass murderers must be feeling a little frustrated about now, and I keep hoping one of them will go to a rally. If anyone doesn’t know what I mean, I’m referring to the rallies being held at state capitals against protective measures.)

  • It’s not about COVID-19, China, Russia or any other country. It’s all about a country acting like an 80 year old man, confined to bed, with his personal functions failing and refusing to admit that he’s dying, nor to submit to the only thing that might save him and extend his life – change.
    I’m making this short and sweet. If U.S. leadership does not wake up, admit our wrongs and act to correct them, they will be counted among the captains of a failing ship. Given my age, it will have little or no effect on my life but, even more so than climate change, it will have serious consequences for the generations that follow.

    • I would modify your take on America’s pathetic situation in only one respect. What we really need, much more than U.S. leadership to wake up, is for the average American citizen to wake up. If millions of them did, and joined hands with the millions of their less fortunate brothers and sisters, the “leadership” in their country (my country) would have to change or be speedily be replaced en mass at every election at every level of government.

  • The intensity of the current anti-China campaign reminds one of the run up to the war on Iraq. The people who now claim that ‘China lied, people died’ are the very same who ran the Iraq WMD campaign. But all the reports claiming Iraqi weapons of mass destruction were just fantasy. The reports of Chinese culpability are similar nonsense. This article can be read here:
    The New Anti-China Campaign Is Built On Lies By Moon Of Alabama
    https://www.moonofalabama.org/2020/04/the-new-anti-china-campaign-is-built-on-lies.html

  • It’s really quite simple. The Blob needs an enemy, it must have an enemy–always and forever–if it is to maintain itself as one of the preeminent forces in U.S. policy and governance. Pirro and others of her ilk understand this and willingly spread bullshit propaganda on behalf of the Blob. It’s why FOX News viewers are so ignorant and misinformed.

    • In fairness, I should add that other mainstream news outlets spread plenty of bullshit as well.

  • The COVID-19 hysteria has become a convenient propaganda pretext for America and its vassal nations to ratchet up their New Cold War against China in general as well as divert blame for their own disastrous responses to COVID-19 in particular.

    The Americans’ excuse for this failed response is that they didn’t have enough warning from China about the pandemic because of a supposed “cover-up” there. Too bad this excuse is belied by several events:

    * On January 5, 2020, China notified the WHO of a “pneumonia of unknown cause” in Wuhan:
    https://www.who.int/csr/don/05-january-2020-pneumonia-of-unkown-cause-china/en/

    * China made public the coronavirus genome for the entire world on January 12, 2020.
    https://www.who.int/csr/don/12-january-2020-novel-coronavirus-china/en/

    * The WHO did a preliminary investigation in Wuhan on January 21st, 2020.
    https://www.who.int/china/news/detail/22-01-2020-field-visit-wuhan-china-jan-2020

    * On January 30, the WHO has issued a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern” for this disease as a result.
    https://www.who.int/dg/speeches/detail/who-director-general-s-statement-on-ihr-emergency-committee-on-novel-coronavirus-(2019-ncov)

    * Even more damning is the United States CDC issued a travel warning for US citizens to China on January 28th of 2020 because of this outbreak.

    CDC Advises Travelers to Avoid All Nonessential Travel to China
    https://www.cdc.gov/media/releases/2020/s0128-travelers-avoid-china.html

    Bottom line: AMERICA KNEW by the end of January that there was a significant health threat.

    But it didn’t even declare a national emergency until March 13, 2020.

    Even today in late April, some American states still have NOT issued shelter-in-place directives.

    And even at this late date, there still is NO *nationwide* US system of mass testing (including of asymptomatic individuals); contact tracing, and quarantine—which are necessary to contain the pandemic.

    Instead, America and its vassal states play the Blame Game and complain that “We Failed Because We Didn’t Have Enough Time to Prepare and It’s all China’s Fault!!!”

    They are truly pathetic whining bitches.

    • Well said. Great logic.

    • “Shelter-in-place” / “social distancing” / etc ??? No-one questioning how these creepy terms had already been devised, akin to the infamous Patriot Act, ready to be released for the fake pandemic crisis to get the green light.

  • We let the wealthy elites get away with 9/11 because we wanted protect the “System” as much as they do because we needed to protect our own social status, our own money and assets…

    So what is happening now should not be a surprise…

    Keeping my Rosary on hand hoping for the soon return of Jesus!

    • I’m not sure which will happen first–the truth about 9/11 coming into public acceptance or Jesus coming in the clouds.

      • The return of Jesus, no doubt.

        Keeping my Rosary on hand!

  • > House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanding that Trump “swiftly begin implementing the Hong Kong Human Rights & Democracy Act”…

    But not demanding human rights for Julian Assange! Democrats liked him when he exposed Bush’s war crimes; as soon as he exposed Hillary Clinton’s emails they started hating him. But they really care about Hong Kong human rights. C’mon…

  • The Bryan Dean Wright video is the most amazing video of the two. He has accused a fair number of elected Federal officials in the US of being traitors, or at best the unwitting agents of Chinese Intelligence. This guy seems to be pretty well into the conspiracy swamp.

    What is it with Americans? At first hint of anything particularly a political disagreement they seem to decide that anyone who disagrees with them has to be a traitor. I’m sure people can remember the history of Joe McCarthy and his witch hunts.

    At this rate if you buy a disposable razor that is labelled “Made in China” you willll have the FBI knocking down your door. This level of paranoia has a long history in the USA. https://harpers.org/archive/1964/11/the-paranoid-style-in-american-politics/

    Jeanine Pirro sounds completely deranged but,at least, she does not seem to be accusing everyone and their grandmother of being traitors. She’s just being a little trained poodle obey her masters. The problem is it bloody dangerous.

    It is clear that Fox News has given their people their orders to slam China to distract from the criminally god-awful behaviour of Donald Trump and his merry band of idiots, religious zealots, and plain old-fashioned crooks. The problem is I don’t think the idiots at Fox or the idiots the White House understand that all this propaganda presumably just to help win the election, does not stay inside the US borders.

    Of course, from a neoliberal free market point of view, I suppose it’s nice that we have the Russians and the Chinese bidding for US Congress people and senators. I have often thought they were underpriced. This could improve the overall market, particularly in senators.

  • This coronovirus fear pandemic is about shutting down the world economy for various reasons. The result of this capital devastation will be depression and war. Politicians are just stupid and being herded into this by the WHO, CDC and ultimately Bill Gates and the climate change people and war neocons. This is about social control and population control. Digital currencie is on the horizon for those wise enough to see.
    What you see on TV is just priming the pump to help facilitate this.

    • If you think people in New York City have not actually become sick and died from the present plague, it would be really easy to check out the facts and present the evidence.

      • The real plague is the media madness that is permeating our lives. I am glad to see some opposition stirring up, even though there is no clear direction to it. We have to break out of our boxes (literally) before it’s too late.
        The “virus” will be used to control us, even more than “terrorism.”

      • They are whipping a flu into hysterics. Check past death rates and compare for yourself.

  • Just another psyop by the Sociopaths In Charge. People are taking to the streets in opposition to the “we’re all gonna die from CV” psyop, so they attempt to distract with a new one. Looks like they may be running out of options. I don’t foresee the Chinese one gaining much traction. People are too busy starving to death.

  • Has no one noticed that while the US goes after China for its ‘treatment’ of whistleblowers, it is demonstrating the same sort of anti-whistleblower attitude towards Assange? It’s kind of a ‘don’t look at what I’m doing because I’m calling you out for the same sort of sins’ attitude. I’m not at all religious, but considering the US prides itself on its Christianity and ‘let he is without sin cast the first stone’ principles, it is kind of obvious, Americans don’t get it.

  • The only real competition going on between China and Siamese twins US/Israel is the worldwide 5G rollout. Who will win the most contracts – China or Israel?

    The other is the OBOR initiative, One Belt One Road. Italy was the first EU nation, btw, to sign up with Russia and China in this collaborative effort.

    Ever since 5G has been blanketing our planet, we are seeing lung irregularities. It is a fact that the 60ghz frequency causes the oxygen molecule to spin too fast, making it hard for hemoglobin to bond so that oxygen can flow from the lungs to the bloodstream. Doctors on the front lines are all agreeing that people are dying from hypoxia and are baffled by it because it doesn’t matter how much oxygen is being pumped into the lungs.

    So, while the empire of hate denounces China, it emulates their technocratic social credit system, which is only possible with this 5G expansion. The proposed ID2020 immunity passport could only work with “smart grid” GND mini cell tower proliferation, too close to the ground for it to be considered a healthy energy alternative.

    If we want to create the healthy world we should ALL want to live in, we need to ban this dangerous technology that is now, thanks to Elon Musk, polluting the Van Allen Belt and end, once and for all, the use of glysophate, which is destroying our soil, food, air and once again, lungs because there is strong possibility that glycerol is causing the vaping disease.

  • Pirro is a particularly vicious old school xenophobic and racist rabble-rouser of the sort the NY DAILY NEWS used to feature when I was growing up (in the pre-Murdoch era of New York media). She’s a rabid dog who’s perfect for getting Fox viewers whipped into a jingoistic frenzy.

    • Thank you, Michael. She is such an unbelievable sack of shit, so creepy and disgusting.

  • I want a multi-polar world with 4 peers, US, Russia, China and the EU (if it ever gets its act together). If the EU kicked the US out of NATO or all left and licked Nato bases out of their countries, then this might be possible.

  • Do you remember just a few months ago, everything was the fault of Russia – especially Mr.Putin.

    Now their target is China. Which country will be next I wonder?

  • Every time this Chinagate whack-a-mole pokes its head up, whack it hard. Remind anyone who claims to be on the left that it’s a Trumpanzee motif and they are falling for it.

    There is a very good article at Alternet which provides a detailed timeline of Trump’s failures with COVID19 – and his attempts to falsely blame the Chinese:

    And this article at Counterpunch gives a good account of the early days of the crisis in China, devastating Trump’s lies:

    Hope that is helpful.

    • The counterpunch article is very good.

    • I get that Donald Trump has been a disaster, but Demented/incoherent/sleazy Joe will NOT be the remedy. If you’ve noticed, EVERY move by both parties with respect to formulating any policy on the corona virus has been strictly politically motivated.

      Even with the two month heads up that the rest of the world gleaned from China, along with examples of government actions that seemed to mitigate the spread of the disease, the Washington regime felt compelled to take a strict wait and see attitude before implementing any proactive policies.

      Both parties would have done the same because if timely draconian actions had worked, the public, not realising the danger, would have condemned them as pointless and wasteful. If they didn’t work, the condemnation would have been even greater. It’s the nature of the American body politic to not act until the crisis is upon us, to close the barn door only after the horse is out.

      We are primed to disbelieve any bad news no matter how qualified the source. Hence, anthropogenic climate change, the need to protect the power grid from EMP whether of natural or man-made origin, or the need to develop vaccines against conspicuously emerging new diseases, just to mention a few examples, are treated as utter bullshit by the conventional “wisdom.” So, it was baked into the cake that, in America, the Covid-19 outbreak was destined to become a raging pandemic.

      Once that happened, the second typical American response was guaranteed to kick in, the public would be made to suffer the brunt of the physical and fiscal losses, whilst, protected by the aura of media-stoked panic, the mega-banks, transnational corporations, the oligarchy and other insider elites would be given keys to the vault down at the Fed and be allowed to loot the treasury to their hearts’ desire. There’s even a name for such policy: it’s called not letting a good crisis go to waste.

      Another universal feature of American federal policy, which will be spouted as much by Sleepy Joe–should he win–as by BadOrangeMan, is that, no matter how chaotic and hopeless the situation, the American leadership in Washington always has everything completely “under control,” so you do not have to worry your little head. Moreover, everything they tell you is the complete unvarnished truth, most likely from God’s lips to POTUS’s microphone.

      One of these truths, as dependable as the axioms of plane geometry you learned as a high schooler, is that the problem–whatever it might be, whether losing an election or losing control of the economy–is ALWAYS the fault of outside agents. Somebody else will be the designated fall guy, be it Putin, Xi, some ayatollah, Saddam, Assad, Maduro, or Bill Gates, or even whole countries like China, Russia, or Iran, or even whole civilisations like the entire Islamic world, Hindus, Confucianists or especially practitioners of that vile “socialism.”

      Since the Corona Fest was inexorably allowed to get out of hand before any effective lockdown policies were put in place and that infamous “curve” was finally “bent” to some promising degree, count on the American people to once again rise up and display their love of freedom and inclination to self-destruction with their displays in the streets of our great land with their displeasure of being cooped up for the whole last three weeks! They are fed up, I tell you, and are ready to flaunt their AR-17’s on the steps of city hall to let you know this. The Daily Mail displays an on-line piece complete with dozens of color photographs to convince you of the veracity of all this.

      Both the Right Wing and Far Right Wing of the great American War & Money Party have now to decide how to make it seem like they are catering to this irrational nonsense for fear of losing the votes of its cult followers come November… assuming November arrives and voting is not a long forgotten ceremony of an extinct society.

    • Garbage writing. That article confirms that the Chinese just jumped to the conclusion based on symptoms that the illnesses were virus-caused, without isolating the alleged virus and doing confirmation studies in non-affected people to confirm that that specific virus was the cause of the symptoms.

  • The world domination theme behind US propaganda is so obvious, you have to acknowledge the power of wall to wall narrative hoaxing to blind the populace to what is right in front of their eyes. The amazing magic of the mindfuckers drowns out the rarer voices of the truthtellers….

    • Take heart. The rare voices of those who tell the truth (as best they can see it) are never drowned out. They have always, in the end, had more “magic” than the mindfuckers. So will it be again, although the road to the inevitable result, inevitable because it’s part of the very structure of things, may well be long and difficult.

  • I “love” the phony pretext that Washington gives for asserting without any empirical basis whatsoever that China is guilty of purposely spreading the corona virus worldwide and hiding this fact from the entire international community, thereby purportedly legitimizing unrestricted “legal” judgments in American kangaroo courts justifying the seizure of trillions of dollars worth of Chinese assets, viz., the Chinese sovereign government will not allow American investigators to waltz into their country and freely collect “evidence” against it, as if Washington would allow any foreign power to do the same within the borders of its territory. Washington to Beijing: You will not allow us unlimited access to all your books, records, personal recollections and testimony which we would invariably interpret in the worst possible light and always assigning the most heinous of motives, so we are assuming the power to frame you for what would be a completely novel charge in the entire history of jurisprudence, and are therefore entitled to summarily pronounce you guilty and levy whatever penalties we please at our leisure and discretion–and believe us, they will be of a magnitude beyond all imagination. They will make the annihilation of Carthage by Rome look like angelic altruism by comparison. Oh, and never mind that Washington handled the corona virus pandemic in its own midst, having the luxury of China’s example many weeks in advance, epically worse than China (or any other country), because we are not putting ourselves on trial like we are doing to you. After all, we are the world hegemon and China is merely one of our compliant vassals, in case you didn’t realise that absolute truth.

  • Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro is seriously deranged. Hate to meet her on a dark night, or anytime for that matter. She must be competing with Trump for the loony tunes awards. However, it is very extreme and very dangerous fact-free rhetoric, arguably intended to incite violence against China. She came very close to calling for some kind of aggressive & hostile action against China.

  • Them ” Commies ” are to blame for everything including the incompetence of the United States Government. We must bring them to Justice! Uncle Sam needs you; join the marines.

    • Yes, next there will [Uyghur] babies on bayonets.
      I’m not letting China completely off the hook though – they are disconcertingly too ‘engrossed’ in this whole The Virus ™ farce and too chummy with the WHO and Dr (non-physician) Tardis Adhanom. Even Boris Johnson is being virtually canonised …

  • You’re amazing as always, I disagree sometimes with you’re views, but you’re voice is clear. No bullshit. Have you ever examined the arguments of LaRouchePac or the Schiller Institute? Search for Dennis Small speaking on the need for a world heath infrastructure to undergo an Apollo program to have the beds and equipment to treat all humanity for any and all virii and disease. But beyond that, the awakening, the Renaissance, must necessarily spring from a notion of Agape, love for humanity. We must inform this Presidency and those of other great powers to cooperate as sovereign nation states in a Westphalian system philosophy of the advantage of the other. For the common goals of humankind. For survival first, yes, but then to thrive in the new paradigm. A world where war is considered childish nonsense. Where caring for every human, no matter their novel genetic makeup, is considered sacred. Where we work together to end poverty and neoliberalism and neoconservativism and most of the rest of the neos. Where a relative paradise compared to today is truly a realistic possibility. Dare to dream, people and arise like lions.

  • couple of points to add…i remember Raygun very well: i’m old. and admit it. those halcyon days of booming 80’s when all the labor unions were being stripped and raped and their jobs raed off to China where wages were like $3 per day…if that…maybe that’s where they are not. but the titans of us industry did not wory about China’s litial stance then not at all. these wee days of blossoming captialisminChiain as bilionaires were being born of NOTHING! and robbr barons were putting some chemicalin baby forula that gave it 20% more volume by weight and killed only a few….bravos could be heard fromthe contry clu bars from across the street.
    yes! they yelled. deregulation! we shoud do it like China does. our corpo pigs cannot fly free!
    now these same us honchos wanna use China as a whipping boy. and i’m about to puke at thei rinanity WHICH I SUSPECT THE SAME 22% OF THE ELECTORATE THAT VOTED FOR TRUMP IN HIS LANDSLIDE VICTORY UBER HELL DA SHILL WILL IGNORE COMPLETELY NOW AND FOREVER. now we’ll have two insane candidates to chose from. nice choice for the magnates…they both need trainers as guides. notdogs but simple deep state thugs on two feet.
    they only want to destroy labor and regulation and live free at any cost. and the CIA is right there paving the road…to the new weird order..it’ll be neo-slavery for the rest of us neo- in that we shall still get to pay for our own shelter and food and health care….unlike real slaves…they might even callus something else,uhm…llike indentured no too historic and outlawed for white boys. maybe workers, a somewhat Commie term. like “workers party.” i dunno the entire future, but i can project pretty well and see it does not include me or anyone who reads this lady.
    If the CIA did not release the corona virus i cannot see why China would. and i want to know of those 300 U.S. special ops who were allowed into china in When exactly maybe SEptember or October 2019 to December…? were properly searched on the way in. they could’ve done this and ina way been relieved to see how it affected the US so docile and believing they might just try another one. not that they have not practiced upon us before. the anthrax the nerve gas gift to Saddam Hussien {by Rummie} and the small pox blankets to the Sioux, the 911 bull shit, the USS MAINE, AGENT ORANGE, undepleted uranium bullets for armor piercing when Iraq did not have any armor. and the pollution of the desert there with child-disfiguring radioactivity and the island of Bikini, mind you unnoticed by anyone, and the fact that we have like 80% of the world’s active biological warfare labs here inside US turf. maybe one at your town. coronavirus is too easy and to well known. HS kids are putting ebola into it in daddy’s basement lab. that it escaped to the US is also OK maybe part of the risk factors or maybe these accusations are the giveaway to the secret plan. war with China. i doubt that. Bimbo. oops, i mean Biden might be nutzie but he is still dangerous. he could be duped into it. Pelosi was. no one for president is the best choice but that is sadly not going to happen. i hope Trump decides to stay. i wanna see that unfold. he’ll just sit there until the Marines come in…or will they?
    we got one ER going already. here comes floods and maybe second coming of god’s own virus wrath…enough to close down the political back and forth for some “firm leadership?”

  • Yup, right again with both feet planted firmly on the ground.
    No pedestal where you are.

    08:07: “It defies every logical aspect of science and medicine and what really really pisses me off is that there’s thousands, tens of thousands of doctors and scientists out there that know that this is a fraud and they’re not saying anything – either [] they’re scared [of] social ostracization because they’re gonna be called out or social shaming or they’re afraid that they gonna lose their licence. For God’s sake this is changing the planet and every scientist and every doctor that knows this to be a facade needs to open their mouth and speak. “

    • Well, maybe if you did a little research you’d know with an absolute certainty that not only would that happen, but probably a whole lot worse than that as well. And, I’m talking about things on the order of the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre.
