Posted in: Biden vows to check Russian aggression, fight inflation in his 1st State of the Union address See in context

Biden's speech was a failure. His numbers will never go up, Americans on the left and right have already made a judgment call on his future. A lame-duck President that "hopefully" will just bide his time until he is voted out.

Posted in: Japan begins COVID-19 vaccination for children aged 5-11 See in context

One year from now it will be an elective vaccine just like the flu shot that your MD will recommend to you to minimize the effects of the disease. There will be some that do it and some that don't. The only difference is will have lost all its political talking points to control people. You can now do all the appropriate things to protect yourself and those around you without getting vaccinated.

Posted in: New U.S. envoy to Japan vows support amid regional tensions See in context

This guy is lying through his teeth. Rahm is dumb as bricks he is only in Japan for the ride. The post of U.S. ambassador to Japan was vacant for more than two years. If I was Japan I would have left it that way because this guy is like a card board stand in he will do nothing!! If this guy as mayor of Chicago couldn't get his own city that was full murder and crime under control how can he give Japan ANY advice on tensions anywhere? LMFAO Emanuel called Russia's amassing of military force along the Ukraine border “a clear and consequential threat to peace, security and a rules-based system.” Why didn't he that as Mayor of Chicago he say GANG WAR FARE as a threat to the many innocent citizens that was killed nightly by gun fire under his watch. He did nothing about the Mexican Cartel coercion, intimidation and its influence flooding drugs in the poor inner city of Chicago. LMFAO by the Mexican cartels. All the while he served as Barack Obama’s first White House chief of staff. What a joke, a card board stand in would have been better!!

It’s time to face reality and understand numbers mean nothing.

Most are not vaccinating against covid, they are vaccinating against unemployment, public opinion and loss of travel.

So what is more dangerous, the virus or the Governments?

Posted in: China's Xi rejects 'Cold War mentality,' pushes cooperation See in context

American policy since, well, before I was born, is that any country that dares to not follow closely American foreign policy gets hit with regime change operations, military attack (either direct and blatant, or 'indirect' and 'denialble' at least in the eyes of itself), and has its economic resources either stolen or destroyed in whole or in part. 

China policy for over a decade is that China invests in trade with, and invests in the development of the infrastructure of, countries, even if they are openly hostile and antagonistic towards it.

The results of the US policy? The population of even its allies see the US government as the biggest threat to the world despite decades of intense, pervasive propaganda. 

The results of the Chinese policy? Well, there's the China initiated free trade agreement that covers almost a third of the global economy that both Japan and Australia (openly hostile and antagonistic towards China) have joined, that is saving lives in a global epidemic, and history suggests that over the span of several decades will see a natural, fully domestic driven, replacement of hostile and antagonistic governments with at least neutral ones (unless China makes the mistake of killing and oppressing the populations of country after country).

PS, it is revealing that the professional Sinophobes endlessly rant about how China is supposedly responsible for the Covid epidemic, yet somehow don't complain about how the German government suppressed, for months, the knowledge that those who did not have symptoms of Covid were spreading the virus around the world. They do, however, mostly insist that the methods that rid the world of two viral diseases already are somehow useless against Covid, merely because China is one of the few countries that fully implements it, rather than only using them when the epidemic is producing catastrophic levels of death and injury, then abandoning them for the more profitable (for certain corporations and the oligarchs) but ineffectual and counterproductive (it inevitably breeds variants that produce 'breakthrough' infections) vaccine only approaches.

Like a fairytale.
