Is 5g the Real Culprit?

There sure is a lot of Gorilla Dust flying around. Is she on to something or just more Gorilla Dust. I don't know what to believe anymore!

My work now backed up on Brighteon.com. (more below) Is this truly Viral or is to do with the fact that F.I.V.E.-G? C.H.I.N.A has unleashed 60 Ghz all throughout the country with WU-HAN as the PILOT CITY. Unbelievable comparisons to symptoms 'showing' as a V-Irus compared vs what happens when one is hit with 60GHz waves, and it's impact on the uptake of oxygen via the hemoglobin. This specific frequency is absorbed by oxygen. 60GHz causes the rotation of the electrons around the oxygen molecule to spin, thus inhibiting the ability of hemoglobin to properly uptake these oxygen molecules. What would be the ultimate 'solution' to such a problem as this "V.I.Rus"?

Coronavirus Crisis in China: What To Believe? Brave Journalist Lifts Veil of Secrecy

By Spiro Skouras

In this exclusive interview, Spiro Skouras is joined by journalist Jennifer Zeng. Ms. Zeng helps shed light on what is really taking place in China, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has crippled the nation.

Jennifer Zeng, born and raised in China, has been a key figure in the information war surrounding the ongoing crisis in China as the Chinese government continues to suppress and control information.

In this powerful interview, Spiro and his guest Jennifer Zeng cover everything from the fake numbers of infected and deceased, to the economic impact, in addition to the exposing state-run propaganda and the stiff 15-year prison terms for those who are deemed guilty by the state for spreading rumors about the outbreak. All this and much more in this must-see interview.

China’s economy continues to collapse as domestic car sales plunge a whopping 92% on spread of Wuhan coronavirus

As The Epoch Times reported late last week, for example, sales of Chinese passenger vehicles has tanked a whopping 92 percent “on an annual basis the first 16 days of February,” according to the China Passenger Car Association.

Sales of passenger vehicles only amounted to 4,909 units during the first 16 days of the month, the organization reported, which fell from 59,930 vehicles sold over the same period a year ago. These are the first figures to demonstrate just how hard the Wuhan coronavirus is hitting the world’s largest auto market.

Because of quarantines and other strict measures meant to control the movement of the population, car sales and other economic activity are way down. But car sales have essentially tanked completely.

Coronavirus Could Be on the Verge of Worldwide Breakout

Paul Craig Roberts

It is difficult to get reliable information about coronavirus. The information difficulty is further complicated by interest groups using the outbreak for their own agendas. For example, many both inside and outside China are using the spread of the virus to criticize the Chinese government. Others, both inside and outside China, claim the virus is a bioweapon unleashed on China by the US. Still others say the global elite has decided to implement a program to reduce the world population and that Bill Gates, one of the global elite, said some months ago that a global pandemic would break out at this time. Some Internet sites attract traffic by posting reports of massive numbers of Chinese deaths and crematoriums running 24/7. The official Chinese story has been that the virus originated in a market that sold wild animal meat. The fact remains that Wuhan, apparently a city larger than any in the US, has been locked down for a month.

Italy Reports Sixth Coronavirus Death, China's NHC Says Situation In Wuhan "Still Grim And Complex": Live Updates

Summary:

First cases reported in Oman, Bahrain
Italy reports sixth death; confirmed cases >200
WHO kowtows to China in statement
Wuhan issues order to loosen lockdown, then U-turns
NHC says outbreak is fading, though situation remains "grim"
Iranian lawmaker says more than 50 deaths in Qom; officials say 12
Hong Kong bars South Koreans
more cases reported in SK
* * *

Update (0910ET): The coronavirus is already forcing Iranians to tweak certain practices, including their daily greetings.

As we reported over the weekend, more than a dozen towns in Lombardy - the hardest hit region with 167 confirmed cases and 4 deaths - are on complete lockdown. According to the latest update, there are now 219 confirmed cases in Italy, as well as five deaths.

Angelo Borrelli, head of the country's civil protection agency, said Monday during a press briefing that another 91 people are currently in isolation inside their homes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a companion piece to this, dateline today, also from zerohedge.com, with the following title: 'What Coverup?': WHO Refuses To Acknowledge China's Early Censorship Of Outbreak

The article then goes on to state: "Update (0816ET): For the most part, the WHO briefing on its visit was everything we feared it would be: Nothing revelatory, just long, boring droning and lukewarm praise about China's response to the outbreak, without once mentioning any kind of coverup.

One reporter apparently felt empowered to challenge the Chinese censors and ask about the cover-up, to which the WHO responded: 'What coverup?' "

Outstanding work, gentlemen.

"It Will Be Really, Really Bad": China Faces Financial Armageddon With 85% Of Businesses Set To Run Out Of Cash In 3 Months

For the past two weeks, even as the market took delight in China's doctored and fabricated numbers showing the coronavirus spread was "slowing", we warned again and again that not only was this not the case (which recent data out of South Korea, Japan and now Italy has confirmed), but that for all its assertions to the contrary, China's workers simply refused to go back to work (even with FoxConn offering its workers extra bonuses just to return to the factory) and as a result the domestic economy had ground to a halt as we described in:

Coronavirus: South Korea placed on ‘red alert’ as fifth person diesMore than 9,000 Shincheonji church members in self-quarantine as president describes coming days as ‘very important moment’

South Korea’s president Moon Jae-in has placed the country on “red alert” after it reported its fifth death and more than 123 new coronavirus cases, taking the total number of infected to 556.

As the nation struggled on Sunday to contain the deadly Covid-19 outbreak in the city of Daegu, the president described the coming days as “a very important moment”, the news agency Yonhap said.

The government would bolster its fight against the virus by raising the alert level one notch to the highest of “red”, he told an emergency meeting of agencies in Seoul on Sunday.

Of the 123 new cases, 75 are related to the Shincheonji church in the country’s fourth-largest city of Daegu and a neighbouring hospital.

The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it has placed more than 9,000 Shincheonji members in self-quarantine and thousands of worshippers have been screened for the virus.

Italy becomes Europe’s largest coronavirus hot spot with 2 deaths & 79 cases across 5 regions

The number of confirmed Covid-19 coronavirus cases has soared to at least 79 in Italy, forcing authorities to introduce increasingly strict containment and quarantine measures in the northern regions of Lombardy and Veneto.
A 78-year-old man died near Padua in the Veneto region on Friday night, becoming the second victim of the virus in Italy, after a 76-year-old woman was found dead on Thursday 50km south of Milan.

At least 17 people have been confirmed infected in Veneto so far, including the latest victim’s wife and daughter, as authorities are still mulling whether the Carnival of Venice events should be cancelled. In neighboring Lombardy, there are 54 cases, including one in Milan – a city with a population of 1.4 million, where Women’s Fashion Week is currently taking place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Prayers for the families and friends of those affected; but again, China's scientists, and the world's scientists, need to work together, with complete transparency, to determine what the hell happened; develop and fast-track a vaccine; and figure out how to prevent such a slate-wiper from ever rearing its ugly head again.

As to whether this will happen, is anyone's guess; but logically, this is what should happen.

Hugging China

For two weeks, I’ve been hugging a border. I type this in Si Ma Cai, just four miles from China, though the trek there is not level, and there’s nothing on the other side but wooded mountains.

Just last week, though, I was in Lao Cai, where each day I could stroll along the Red or Nanxi River and see what the Chinese were doing on their streets and balconies, or inside their windows. Along the bank of the Red River, a few men were fishing against a green backdrop of towering wild grass and bamboos. I fleetingly glimpsed two women walking their dogs.

Most of the time, though, there was no life.

2/7/20 Danny Sjursen on America’s Coming Battle for Eurasia

Danny Sjursen is back for part two of his conversation with Scott about America’s foreign policy disasters, this time focusing on what Sjursen calls “the coming battle for Eurasia.” According to an old theory of geopolitics, the power that controls central Eurasia—that is, eastern Europe and parts of the Middle East, with all its natural resources and strategic position—will be the dominant global hegemon. Obviously, certain figures in the American government would like to be in that position. The problem, Sjursen points out, is that America is way too far away to have any business trying to do this, especially while countries like Russia and China might have an interest in trying to stop us. He says that based on his experience in the military, people seem to think the U.S. could wage a conventional war with tanks, infantry, and aircraft carriers against other world powers, without resorting to nuclear weapons.

NANOTECHNOLOGY: ONE WORLD, ONE BRAIN

BY JON RAPPOPORT
From lexico.com: nanotechnology: “The branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, especially the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.”

The recent arrest of Harvard pioneer in the field of nanotechnology, Charles Lieber—on charges of lying to federal authorities about his business connections to China—has exposed wide-ranging relationships among American and Chinese researchers.

These relationships include, above all, the open sharing of sensitive technologies that, once upon a time, would have been considered closely guarded state secrets. (See my recent piece, “Behind the explosive Charles Lieber scandal.”)

Here are quotes from the journal Nano Today, from a 2019 paper titled: “Nanowire probes could drive high-resolution brain-machine interfaces”. Its authors are Chinese and American:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The hidden, and current history, of these technology transfers, is chilling in its scope, and implications for the future of this technology.

CHINA DEPLOYS AGRICULTURAL ROBOTS AND DRONES TO FIGHT VIRUS OUTBREAK

SOURCE: ZERO HEDGE
XAG Co., Ltd. was selected by the Chinese government late last month for the deployment of its ground-based robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) to spray powerful disinfectants across public places in cities where the Covid-19 outbreak is the worse.

XAG is using a fleet of R80 Agricultural Utility Vehicle robots with 80-liter (21 gallons) sprayers for ground-based disinfectant operations across public places.

The company tweeted several pictures of the R80 in action, spraying disinfectant across a "parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou."

XAG
@XAG_official
Our farm #robot R80 has stepped forward to join the #fightcoronavirus operation, disinfecting parking lot outside the office block in Guangzhou. Lightweight, flexible to traverse small districts, R80 can disinfect an area of up to 64800 square metres per hour, with no dead ends.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but most disinfectants... are anti-bacterial; what we are dealing with here, with the coronavirus, is... a virus, not a bacteria.

Were I a Chinese citizen, reading this blurb, I would be infinitely more comforted understanding that some of the chemicals in this disinfectant were actually anti-viral, rather than just specifically anti-bacterial.

Is China Secretly Shipping Nuclear Arms To Pakistan?

On February 12, 2020, GreatGameIndia issued an alert regarding a suspicious shipment off the western coast of India. The ship belonged to a Chinese shipping company blacklisted by the Americans last year and was destined to Pakistan. Further investigation revealed the seized shipment carried launching gear for missiles and that China was secretly shipping nuclear arms to Pakistan, now being examined by two different teams of Indian nuclear scientists. Sources in Coastal intelligence told GreatGameIndia the intercept was based on a tip-off from the Americans who were monitoring the entire fleet of the shipping line believed to be a front of Chinese intelligence.

Chinese Coronavirus Patient Reinfected 10 Days After Leaving Hospital

In retrospect, the CDC will soon be proven correct in its dire warning that repatriating a full plane of both infected and healthy individuals could be a catastrophic error, because it now appears that not only can the virus remain latent for as long as 42 days, 4 weeks longer than traditionally assumed, resulting in numerous false negative cases as infected carrier slip across borders undetected, but far more ominously, it now appears that the diseases can re-infect recently "cured" patients, because as Taiwan News reports, a Chinese patient who just recovered from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) has been infected for the second time in the province of Sichuan, according to local health officials.

On Wednesday (Feb. 19), the People's Daily reported that a man in Sichuan's capital Chengdu had tested positive for the virus during a regular check-up just ten days after being discharged from the hospital. The report said he had previously been cleared of the virus by medical staff.

HOW CHINA IS WORKING TO QUARANTINE THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS

SOURCE: CRYPTOGON
“Censorship, diversion, and lying.”

Google’s core principals?

*I crack myself up*

This piece is useful in understanding state behavior, in general, and their large, lapdog media and social networking organizations.

Via: DefenseOne:

In its battle to contain the coronavirus, the Chinese government has undertaken a wide range of measures, from shutting down cities to using drones to monitor and compel public compliance with public health edicts. But the regime is also waging a second battle: a campaign to control the world’s discussions of the first.

The weapons in this information war are Beijing’s massive media and online control mechanisms. Its three prevailing tactics—all too common across authoritarian regimes and wider online warfare— are censorship, diversion, and lying. China’s efforts show how an online battle for public security sometimes works in opposition to public health, and it reveals the priorities of an authoritarian regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The world's scientific community needs to implore Chinese leadership, in the most gentle, logical, and responsible way possible, that this cover-up, will be what will be remembered in world history, not how this actually came to happen.

To the Chinese political and scientific leadership, please; this is a time when humankind needs to come together and collaborate, to come to better understandings of what can be done to fight this virus intelligent, rapidly, and humanely.

Behind the explosive Charles Lieber scandal

The sensors will transmit all this information, through the emerging Internet of Things—using the 5G pipeline—to medical centers—where AI corporate and government analysts will confirm the disease diagnoses and prescribe treatments.

Eventually, a few billion people (patients) would, through these sensors in their bodies, be hooked up to the 5G Internet of Things.

However, as I’ve reported many times in these pages, the standard definitions of diseases and disorders are often incorrect, or even invented. But because the future system I’ve just sketched is automated, the patient is enclosed in a fake and dangerous bubble. Among other problems, the disease treatments, the drugs, are toxic.

What is the technology that is on the way to producing these body sensors?

Nanoscience. Nano-engineering.

China Injects A Record 5 Trillion Yuan In New Debt To Arrest Economic Crash

There was a palpable sense of disappointment last night when instead of cutting its benchmark overnight interest rates as some - notably Goldman Sachs - had speculated might happen, the PBOC announced that it would only lower its benchmark 1- and 5-year lending rates, i.e., Loan Prime Rate, by 10 bps to 4.05% and 5bps to 4.75% respectively, a move that was widely anticipated.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This response by the Chinese government to this pandemic, underscores just how horrific Chinese leadership sees this getting.

Chinese Regime Deploys 1,600 Online Trolls To Suppress Information On Coronavirus

Authored by Cathy He and Eva Fu via The Epoch Times,

The propaganda department in virus-stricken Hubei Province has engaged over 1,600 censors to scrub the internet of “sensitive” information relating to the coronavirus outbreak, according to an internal document obtained by The Epoch Times.

The internal report, dated Feb. 15, detailed the agency’s efforts to ramp up censorship measures. It was drafted after a speech given by Chinese leader Xi Jinping via video link on Feb. 10 to “frontline responders” of the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan, the capital of Hubei, where the virus first broke out.

The revelations come as the Chinese regime tightens information controls over the worsening outbreak, as netizens have increasingly turned to the internet to vent their frustrations about the authorities’ response, or document what is happening on the ground.

Trump & The Masonic Jewish Tag Team

This article from Jan 17, 2017, is looking increasingly prescient.

Trump belongs to the Zionist faction. Does this portend another world war?

By Henry Makow Ph.D.

What is Donald Trump's place in the big picture?

Trump is a Freemason and probably a crypto Jew. He is surrounded by Jews. The Masonic Jewish (Illuminati) goal is the reduction of the human race (goyim) to the status of domestic animals serving them. We see this emergent pattern in the gross disparities of wealth in today's world.

The Illuminati advance this agenda through mind control (mass media, education) and war. They can't subjugate humanity alone; they need the goyim to destroy each other.

Russia Is Defeating The U.S. In The Middle East Oil Game

Authored by Simon Watkins via OilPrice.com,

Historically, Russia goes to great lengths to hide or disguise its strategic intentions but it clearly feels empowered enough in the Middle East to very obviously stake its claim in the region – excluding, for the time being only, Saudi Arabia – by stating that a slew of Russian companies are to spend up to US$20 billion on oil projects in Iraq in the near term.

“Since [U.S. President Donald] Trump outlined the new U.S. foreign policy of not engaging in conflicts abroad unless they were directly aligned with U.S. interests [October 2019], and then effectively withdrawing from Syria and from supporting the Kurds, Russia and China have felt that they can bring forward their plans to bring Iraq within their geopolitical arc of influence,” a senior source who works closely with Iraq’s Oil Ministry told OilPrice.com last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And after all the US blood and money spent, who actually won in Iraq?!?

Folks, read 'em and weep; it is China and Russia; NOT the USA.

Iraq, China launch 'oil for reconstruction' agreement

America’s Failed Strategy in the Middle East: Losing Iraq and the Gulf

This article goes on to state: "More broadly, the United States has steadily lost the confidence of its Arab strategic partners in the Gulf region. The United States ignored their advice during the invasion in 2003 – making Iran the dominant military power in the northern Gulf while also turning Iraq into a constant source of unstable weaknesses and concern. Beginning with President Obama, the United States has bullied its allies over burden sharing even when they were spending some 10% of their GDP on military forces – raising growing questions about U.S. willingness to main its military role in the Gulf and support the security of its allies. The United States has instead sanctioned and provoked Iran – without effectively deterring it or properly reacting to Iranian military actions – stood by as China created a major base and port facility in Djibouti, and enabled Russia, Turkey, and China to become growing players in Gulf affairs."

And then we have the following story from last September, which of course, never made it to the presstitute corporate press: Russia’s Stroytransgaz Bags Iraq E&P Deal The article goes on to state: "Iraq’s Oil Ministry has signed up US-sanctioned firm Stroytransgaz to explore and potentially develop reserves in the western Anbar province. The yet-to-be-finalized deal sees yet another Russian firm target Iraq’s underexplored acreage.
Russian firm Stroytransgaz was awarded a 34-year contract this week to explore and produce oil and gas in western Iraq’s Block 17, a ministry statement confirms."

How in the name of heaven was this allowed to happen, under the watch of successive administrations, including those of President George Bush; President Barak Obama; and President Donald Trump?!?

One would have thought that somehow, such an outcome would never have been allowed by any of these administrations, let alone all of them; and yet, looking at current events, this outcome was allowed to happen

The only logical explanation to which I can attach any possible credence, is that no matter which party was actually in control, and (allegedly) in charge of the government, the people who were hired to run these scenarios, were utterly, pathologically incapable of seeing any of them through to their most logical conclusions.

Or, when these logical conclusions were expressed to superiors, they were shouted down, courtesy of a collective US leadership hubris, infused with the collective "magical belief" that their "vision" could ultimately trump the butt-ugly prognostications of the people they hired to actually, logically, figure out how these potential scenarios would play out.

This has caused some tremendous info-gaps, at the White House, Pentagon, State Department, and Congress, and this needs to be addressed, and corrected, ASAP; of course, the question must be asked; with so much credibility blown by agencies responsible for US foreign policy, which one will be willing to take the blame?!?

The short answer is, "Absolutely none!", which means that the US is going to continue to advocate, and embrace, an absolutely dysfunctional, disjunct; and dystopian foreign policy, right up until this bites us, collectively, in a very sensitive place in the human anatomy; and when that moment hits, unfortunately, it may well be too late to change course.

New Estimates Suggest Chinese Tech Shipments Are About To Crash

Now that Apple has opened the floodgates and made it entirely clear that China's economic collapse will slash revenue guidance on the year and lead to production woes through April, an onslaught of earnings downgrades from other top technology companies with significant operations in China could be imminent.

Evidence grows by the day of supply chains grinding to a halt as the second-largest economy in the world falters (as described here last week)...

We've described how China's economic output remains frozen, and even if supply chains were able to restart, companies don't have enough capital to cover wages, or have delayed or stopped paying workers, suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak has left businesses on the brink of disaster. Worse, workers can't freely move around the country, and many are subjected to travel restrictions and quarantines, which has forced a massive labor shortage.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all of you who like your "big box shops", whatever the names of those venues might be; if there is any stuff you buy which originates in China, now might be the time to stockpile, because with Chinese factories and fulfillment centers shut down, it might be quite a while before those products come in again.

Terrifying Charts Show China's Economy Remains Completely Paralyzed

In our ongoing attempts to glean some objective insight into what is actually happening "on the ground" in the notoriously opaque China, whose economy has been hammered by the Coronavirus epidemic, last week we showed several "alternative" economic indicators such as real-time measurements of air pollution (a proxy for industrial output), daily coal consumption (a proxy for electricity usage and manufacturing) and traffic congestion levels (a proxy for commerce and mobility), before concluding that China's economy appears to have ground to a halt. These observations were subsequently reaffirmed when we showed that steel demand, property sales, and passenger traffic had all failed to rebound from the "dead zone" hit during China's Lunar New Year hibernation.

China To Change Definition Of Coronavirus "Infection" Again In Pursuit Of Fewer Cases

The move, which stunned markets sending futures sharply lower as the carefully crafted narrative that China was regaining control over the coronavirus epidemic, was the result of Beijing's intention to appear "transparent" with the public and to concede that the situation was worse (but not far too worse) than officially represented, especially amid the flood of media reports showing infected (and not infected) Chinese citizens getting carted away against their will to places unknown, even as hundreds of random people would fall dead, their final moments caught on camera. As a result, the province of Hubei, epicenter for the Coronavirus infection, changed the definition of infection and loosened its diagnosis criteria by starting to classify as “confirmed” cases that were clinically diagnosed by physicians, instead of purely validated by a genetic test.

As China Grinds To A Halt, Firms Can No Longer Afford To Pay Workers

With every passing day that its economic disintegration is not reversed, China inches closer to what may be a very violent tipping point, one which sets billions of angry, starving, broke and quarantined citizens against the communist party oligarchy.

As China's economic output remains literally frozen, a new report suggests that many Chinese companies - which never factored for this type of calamity - don't have enough capital to cover wages, or have delayed or stopped paying workers, suggesting that the Covid-19 outbreak has left businesses on the brink of disaster.

"Keenly Aware"- FDA Braces For Drug And Medical Supply Shortages From China 

With every week its economic disintegration is not reversed, China is triggering the most massive supply chain "shock" the world has seen since the last financial crisis, now spreading from East to West.

The next impact won't just be Europe, which we've already mentioned the closure of a Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plant in Serbia, but will be America and could first be in the form of drug and medical supply shortages.

The FDA warns, "we are keenly aware that the outbreak will likely impact the medical product supply chain, including potential disruptions to supply or shortages of critical medical products in the U.S."

Trump’s War on Huawei Devolves to a Cringeworthy Embarrassment for the US

Humiliated by the United Kingdom’s refusal to exclude Huawei from its 5G broadband network, the Trump Administration has doubled down on its attempts to stop China, with poor prospects for success.

The American response includes prosecution of Huawei under the Racketeer-Influenced and Corrupt Organization (RICO) statute, drafted to combat organized crime.

It also includes proposed regulations that would stop the sale of any US components to Huawei and China’s second-rank telecommunications firm ZTE if 10% of their production comes from American technology.

China Expels 3 WSJ Reporters Over "Racist" Opinion Piece

Update (0720ET): CNBC's Eunice Yoon, who has also been a reliable source of information out of Beijing since the outbreak began, has published a statement from Beijing about the expulsions: "Chinese people do not welcome media that publish racially discriminatory and malicious slander on China. In light of this, China has decided to revoke the press cards of the three Wall Street Journal correspondents in Beijing starting today."

#China revoked the press credentials of three @WSJ journalists based in Beijing. Foreign Ministry said move was punishment for a recent @WSJ opinion piece. @joshchin, @Chao_Deng, @PhilipWen11 ordered to leave in 5 days, said @JChengWSJ

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During this horrific time for the entire planet, given the lethality, and spread of this virus, it would have been exceptionally responsible, and the morally right thing to do, for the WSJ to call upon both Chinese, and world scientists to collaborate, as the brothers and sisters they are, united by their science, to find a way of stopping this virus, and developing a vaccine against it.

China's President Xi is now in a very tough position right now, and perhaps this is precisely where the US wants him to be, as he is being made to look weak to his own people, for he and his management team not having handled this outbreak better.

But I need to ask what is tantamount to an almost sympathetic question here, and that is; did the team originally responsible for this virus, immediately and truthfully communicate the true potential for the scope of its spread, and potential lethality, when it somehow got beyond the control of the lab working with it, or were they too afraid of the potential draconian Communist Party repercussions, once its management understood precisely what had happened here?!?''

After all, when China executes someone in the 21st century, they still charge the family of the executed the cost of the bullet.

My intuition tells me, "No."

Jaguar Land Rover UK Factory To Run Out of Chinese Parts In Weeks

The amount of supply chain disruptions that are coming out of the woodwork is nothing short of astonishing. This could shock the hell out of the global economy, forcing a trade recession that would lead to a readjustment of stock prices. At this moment, central bankers are terrified, because monetary policy is virtually ineffective during a virus outbreak.

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) warned Tuesday that their UK factory has enough Chinese parts for the next two weeks, but heading into March, their production lines could grind to a halt due to the lack of parts, reported Reuters.

Supply Chain Chaos Unfolds At Major Chinese Ports As Frozen Meat Containers Pile Up

New evidence from Bloomberg reveals cracking global supply chains are fast emerging at major Chinese ports with thousands of containers of frozen meat piling up with nowhere to go.

The Covid19 outbreak will remain a dominant issue for 1Q as supply chain shocks are being felt by multinationals on either side of the hemisphere.

Sources told Bloomberg that containers of frozen pork, chicken, and beef (mostly from South America, Europe, and the US) are piling up at Tianjin, Shanghai, and Ningbo ports because of the lack of truck drivers and many transportation networks remain closed.

Seaports in China are quickly running out of room to house the containers and cannot provide enough electricity points to keep existing containers cold. This has forced many vessels to be rerouted to other destinations.

Why the US is losing its war against Huawei

According to a Chinese analyst, Huawei might drop the price of its chipsets by 30% in a price war with the Americans, driving them out of the whole of the Asian market. In that case, the analyst said, Nvidia would run out of cash in 18 months and Qualcomm would run out in 24 months, forcing them to shut down research and development. That would mark the end of American importance in the semiconductor industry that the US created.

The Spin War Coronavirus: Media and Politicians Take Anti-China Fear Mongering to New Levels

By Alan Macleod

Starting in Wuhan in December, the coronavirus outbreak has spread across China, infecting around 64,000 people and worrying the rest of the world. Fueling the panic, media have been printing alarmist scare stories and politicians peddling false information.

STILL No Non-East Asian Deaths From Corona—But CNN’s Sanjay Gupta Won’t Admit It

The story so far: There is still no confirmed case of the Coronavirus killing anyone other than ethnic East Asians. The Drudge Report today (February 15) features FRANCE REPORTS FIRST DEATH OUTSIDE ASIA... but the underlying story, from Bloomberg via Yahoo Finance, says the victim was an “80-year-old Chinese tourist.” Drudge, of course, is just scaring up clicks. But why does the rest of the Main Stream Media, and the medical Establishment, want to suppress a possibility that could relieve fears around the world: that the Coronavirus disproportionately impacts, and perhaps only kills, East Asians?

Now read on.

GOP lawmaker slams California pension fund defense of Chinese ties as 'oblivious'

A Republican lawmaker slammed the response of California's state pension fund as "deeply oblivious," two days after he called for the firing of its chief investment officer over accusations that the fund invested in Chinese companies blacklisted by the U.S. government.

"This is a deeply oblivious and ignorant response," Rep. Jim Banks told "Mornings with Maria" Friday. "What we know is that CalPERS, the largest state pension fund in America, invests in almost 300 Chinese companies."

In a Wednesday letter addressed to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Banks alleged California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) invested in numerous blacklisted Chinese companies that manufacture military products and urged the state to investigate its CIO, Yu Ben Meng.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only reasonable answer I can think of, is that when Calpers originally invested in these companies, they were not blacklisted, and were actually making money for the California State Pension fund.

But SOMEONE in their business units, should have had the horse-sense, once these companies were blacklisted, to pull Calpers money out of these deals and invest elsewhere; that this did not happen, appears to be very concerning indeed/\.

Corona Virus Part II

A little over two weeks ago, I wrote to you about the corona virus (COVID-19) epidemic in a blog post titled, ‘Corona Virus: What to Do.’ In that post, I suggested that corona virus, like most flu-like viruses, can be effectively managed with a holistic approach of eating a diet free of refined sugar, taking vitamins and minerals—particularly vitamins A, C, and D as well as iodine, and avoiding the flu shot.

China’s New Coronavirus: An Examination of the Facts

The Western mass media have discussed the new corona virus that began in the city of Wuhan in Central China but, apart from repetitive small details and the inevitable China-bashing, not much light has been shed on the circumstances. My initial commentary here is composed from a medley of nearly 100 Western news reports, primarily ABC, CBS, CNN, AFP, and from some Chinese media. Officially called the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), the contagion is a respiratory illness, a new type of viral pneumonia, in the same family of infections as SARS and MERS.

China's Xi Threatens More Crackdowns As Scientists Say Coronavirus May Have Originated From Wuhan Labs

By Aaron Kesel

China’s President Xi Jinping has called for tightened control over online discussion and increased policing to ensure “positive energy” and social stability according to state media, Bloomberg reported. This is being pushed as Chinese scientists in South Beijing have said the virus’ origin was the long-suspected Wuhan Virology lab or another Wuhan Center for Disease Control lab.

The government must “strengthen the management and control of online media,” and “crack down on those who seize the opportunity to create rumors” on the internet, Xi said...

MORE PROOF TRUMP IS THE "CONTROLLED OPPOSITION" AFTER ALL

During the election it was unclear if Donald Trump was a puppet of the elites. He could have simply been a convenient scapegoat. Today, it is obvious that he is indeed controlled opposition.

As I've noted in numerous articles, Trump's associations with the globalists go way back. He was saved from crippling debts in multiple properties in Atlantic City during the 1990s by the Rothschilds. The Rothschild banking agent that handled Trump's bailout was none other than Wilber Ross, the senior managing director of Rothschild New York. Ross is now Trump's Commerce Secretary, which indicates that this relationship continues to this day.

US Firms In China Suffering "Severe Shortages Of Workers," Warn Virus Impact Hitting Supply Chains

The global supply chain Armageddon is happening. The economies of the world are more interconnected than ever. There are many 'single points of failure' in these complex and global operations, of which many of them originate in China.

A new poll via Shanghai's American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham) discovered that 50% of US firms operating in China say shutdowns of factories have impacted their global operations due to the Covid-19 outbreak, reported Reuters.

About 78% of these firms warn that their staffing is currently short at the moment, which would prevent the resumption of full production, leading to massive shortages of products in the next several months for Western markets.

WHAT HAPPENS TO PRIVACY WHEN CHINA HAS PERSONAL DATA AND THE SOCIAL GRAPH OF NEARLY EVERYONE IN THE US?

The speech by US Attorney General William P. Barr hardly seems earth-shattering. But buried within its business-like announcement of the indictment of four Chinese military hackers, there is the following statement, which has huge implications for privacy:

For years, we have witnessed China’s voracious appetite for the personal data of Americans, including the theft of personnel records from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the intrusion into Marriott hotels, and Anthem health insurance company, and now the wholesale theft of credit and other information from Equifax.
