Posted in: Trump threatens to freeze U.S. funding for WHO, saying they 'missed the call' on coronavirus See in context

RationalReader:

Taiwan warned WHO about person-to-person transmission at the beginning of January but the WHO refuses to interact with Taiwan because of political pressure from China.

Did you see the interview with the WHO official? Mentioning "Taiwan" to these goons is like a silver cross to dracula. Would be funny if it not not so sad.

Trump is correct on the WHO, but he will be bashed by the fake media nonetheless.

Japan can print its own money. Virtually every other country has its printing presses running full steam right now so inflation isn't a problem.

Err, yes it is. Are you confusing inflation with FX rate? Inflation refers to the value of money vs goods.

Are they? I don't have access to the info and data various 'internet research' agencies have so will just have to wait until more info and data become available to decide for myself whether they're cabal-ing up or putting each other out of business.

By "waiting more info and data become available" you mean waiting until the mainstream media give you their talking points?

Meanwhile, in the real world, the massive production increase by Prince Mohammed, the resulting oil price drop, and the price level at which the US oil industry is competitive are not exactly secrets. This is really an issue that should be difficult to bend into a Tump bashing narrative.... but lets see what the MSM come up with.

pukey:

despite absolutely no experience in anything except in making money for his own companies

sounds a bit like the 80,000/month zero-experience gas expert son of Joe BIden, doesn´t it. That said, I am not happy with this guy being involved in politics either. Although thinking out of the box would certainly be a good thing, rather than relying on "professional" politicians.

Posted in: North Korea insists it is free of coronavirus See in context

Kim probably actually wants the virus to kill all those poor people anyway since they're a blight to his otherwise shining record

I doubt that very much. Kim needs those poor people to keep the country running. I think it safe to assume that Corona is in NK already, it is simply not reported. Who dies, dies.

One factor that would slow downn the virus in NK is that NK has very little freedom of movement; travel between towns is very restricted. Our governments are starting to introduce something like that now, NK has always had it. So they had a huge advantage in that respect.

Velius:

Look, COVID-19 is a fact of life in our world now. There is no putting the genie back in the bottle. It is just too easily transmitted. If we all quarantine now, all it does is delay the time when the virus starts spreading again

Soon, there will be effective treatment options (Trumps "game changer", much maligned and misreported by the "mainstream" press, is now approved by the FDA as effective), and eventually a vaccine. Unlike the normal flu vaccination, this is one I want to get. Clearly this bug is worse than the normal flu.

Kobe White Bar Owner:

Use the Olympic stadium as a emergency hospital.

I dont think this is just about physical space. Even if you fill up the entire stadium with beds, so what? An ICU is called that precisely, because it is intensive. What do you do when all the doctors and nurses are overworked, fewer in numbers because of some are infected, and working much slower than usual because of extra infection precaution?

The problem is capacity, not just space.

Arrestpaul:

Just because the media outlets are currently ignoring Islamic terrorism doesn't mean that Islamic terrorism has magically disappeared.

In the mainstream media, it magically disappeared long ago. Note that they are only talking about "extremists", "militants" or "fighters" these days, without any identifiable ideological basis. This i word in this article is rather the exception.

The extremists are in countries which if the pandemic hits will spread very quickly.

Which increasingly includes Europe. Check the geographical composition of the ISIS "fighters".

Birx responded that it was true that some states were flat

So the article itself admits that Trumps remark was correct. But of course, the mainstream media and their consumer bash him again. Reality does not matter if the tunnel vision is strong enough.

Posted in: Trump administration moves toward promoting broader use of face masks See in context

The Trump administration is formalizing new guidance to recommend that many, if not almost all, Americans wear face coverings when leaving home, in an effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus.

I hope they are ordering companies to make them domestically. If they rely on masks produced in China, they are reckless.

These days, Trump going nuts with the credit card is just fine. smh.

...and if he had blocked that pork-laden Corona bill, you would complain about that. What is the point?

So, you think capitalism is good in the good times and socialism is good in the bad times?

Afaic. socialism never works. And I suspect deep down you know that too. Would you rather be a Corona patient in Cuba, Venezuela or North Korea than in a Western country?

wtfjapan

the virus wasn't just from Chinese it was also from Americans infected abroad and returning home,

The virus was from China. And now the CCP wants to portrayed as the great benevolent helper, by sending aid abroad. They should have be honest about the thing in the first place, instead of suppressing information for 3 months. Remember, the infection was reported back in November, but heavily censored in China. The CCP even ordered the first research results and samples destroyed. Lets not forget that.

Tonight on the Chinese WeChat platform, I've seen troubling video footages about Face-masks from China... the video showed a person purporting to be Chinese National, wiping Face-masks on his shoes whilst saying in a poor Japanese pronunciation of "konnichiwa" and then packing the masks into boxes destined for ... purportedly Japan. All I can say is that the Masks were Blue coloured - so please, if this is a real video, be aware.

Regardless if this is true, the whole thing should be a wake up call for all the globalists. Now China is sending "help" to Italy and Spain. 90 of ingredients used by Western pharmaceutical companies come from China. Becoming the pharmacy of the world was a stated policy goal by the CCP, and they have succeeded. Now, whenever we get another plague from China, we are dependent help to battle it from... China. I find this obscene.

It is VERY high time for de-coupling. There was life before our elites made us dependent on China, and it was safer than the present.

Posted in: Trump hopes to see U.S. economy reopened by Easter; contradicts warnings of public health officials See in context

Trump business are thinking of cutting themselves a check from the stimulus package for the loss of business at shut clubs in America, Ireland and Scotland.

The travel and hotel industries are among the hardest hit by the Corona shutdown, and inevitably they will be asking government help. And inevitable government will under pressure to provide that. Now, the Potus is in the hotel business..... the screaming from the Trump hating crowd was the easiest thing to predict.

Yes, bail out all hotels, except the ones owned by hated bad guy.... in other words punish him selectively,

Expect a whole bunch mainsteam media talking heads to push this in the coming days.

What Donny is doing, day after day, from that podium is downright criminal.

He is giving people false hope, making them careless and letting people buy medicine which is useless to them.

I am curious, what exactly is criminal about being optimistic? Would you prefer the president tells gloom and doom every day? And what useless medicine is letting people buy everyday? Can you be specific? I didnt even know the president was in charge of letting people buy medicine, I thought as long as it is over the counter, everybody can do that?

Curious.

I don't watch Trump's media: are they still parroting him, saying it all be over in a couple weeks?

I am curious, what are Trumps media? The mainstream media that I see are solidly on the Trump bashing side, with possible exception Fox, which is one lonely holdout.

Big Yen:

Not necessarily. The virus might prove a lot more deadly to the young if it gets established somewhere where health facilities are limited or non-existent, like say the Sahel in Africa.

The statistics collected so far seem pretty consistent in showing that the virus hardly affects young people at all (other than in being carriers and spread to the vulnarable population of course). And if you have no health complications, you do not need hospitals, so that seems irrelevant.

I understand the Spanish Flue was very different in that it attacked young healthy people MORE than the elderly, which meant it had such a big effect in WW1.

Wakarimasen:

"Casualties" from coronavirus are still vanishingly small.

This article seems to me to be a bit contrived.

Not only small, they affect the elderly and sickly, not the young healthy population that does the fighting, so they Corona deaths are pretty irrelevant there. However, if they stop the foreign involvement, I can see only good results. Yes, the article seems to be based on a false premise.

A lot of these conflicts would play out with less intensity or not exist at all, if our politicians stopped meddling, so if the virus stops that, it would be a good thing.

No, it simply means this is country of 120 million, and when you have such a large population, some "senseless, random, very violent crime" will happen somewhere. This is not "proof" of anything else.

JJ Jetplane:

Trump is causing more people to rise up and commit crimes against asians in America and the recent war of words between America, China, and Taiwan are also making things worst. Ignorance is really dangerous right now.

In what way is "Trump causing people to rise up and commit crimes against Asians in America"? And what "recent war of words" are you talking about? The CCP is always at war with words against Taiwan and any critics. But a war of words between Taiwan and America? Where?

I am curious how you get these ideas.

Ahso:

No, he didn't. While the rest of the world was acting, Trump was downplaying it's significance, and using words like "hoax" to describe its coverage.

That is fake news. He initially downplayed it, but at that time, European countries were doing that too. He introduced travel restrictions quickly, and was criticised for it (e.g. by Joe Biden).

Two weeks ago he said that he wasn't concerned:

"The requested article has expired, and is no longer available. Any related articles, and user comments are shown below." ... don´t know where you archive your articles, but I suspect it is the typical "mainstream" media spin and distortion on whatever the guy does. You know, colored man bad no matter what. At the beginning of May, he certainly had done everything that can be expected.

What exactly more do you expect the Potus to do?
