British Destroyer PURPOSEFULLY Crossed Into Crimea’s Territorial Waters, Russia Says Dropped “Warning Bombs”

  Editor’s note: Unclear if warning shots were actually fired, and “warning bombs dropped”. There is no footage for the bombs. Firing can be heard but the official British story is that the Russians were conducting gunnery exercises nearby. In any case that’s not the important thing.

Nearly 42% of Americans ages 5-17 — roughly overlapping with the ages of K-12 schoolchildren — have already been infected with SARS-CoV-2, according to CDC’s best estimate.

Hilarious: In 2014 Vice President Biden Claimed China Was Inherently Incapable of Innovating

Vice President Joe Biden blasted China on Wednesday in a speech about foreign policy, arguing the country hasn’t produced anything innovative. “China-and it’s true – is graduating six to eight times as many scientists and engineers as we have.

Why Has “Ivermectin” Become a Dirty Word?

  On December 8, 2020, when most of America was consumed with what The Guardian called Donald Trump’s “desperate, mendacious, frenzied and sometimes farcical” attempt to remain president, the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee held a hearing on the “Medical Response to Covid-19.” One of the witnesses, a pulmonologist named Dr. Pierre Kory, insisted he … Continue reading “Why Has “Ivermectin” Become a Dirty Word?”

China Considers Lifting All Childbirth Restrictions by 2025, Shift to Promotion of Childbearing

Editor’s note: Encouraging births won’t work any better than anywhere else. Demographic decline in the medium-term (the next several decades) is unavoidable across the modern world, but had the Chinese not imposed the shortsighted one-child policy maybe they would now be looking at a decline from 1.7 billion instead of 1.4 billion. People aren’t buttons … Continue reading “China Considers Lifting All Childbirth Restrictions by 2025, Shift to Promotion of Childbearing”

UK Carrier to Casually Bomb Syria in a Drive-by Attack as It Sails to China

Editor’s note: Okay, fighting ISIS is a good thing in principle. However, to do it in such a manner is just preposterous.

Secondly, there is something intensely perverse about casually dropping a few … Continue reading “UK Carrier to Casually Bomb Syria in a Drive-by Attack as It Sails to China”

What Would Be the Point? China Feels Relations Too Tense for a Pointless Biden-Xi Summit

Editor’s note: China taking a different approach here from Russia. They won’t have a summit for summit’s sake, no matter how nicely Biden asks for the photo-op.

The ultimate goal of every totalitarian system is to establish complete control over society and every individual within it in order to achieve ideological uniformity and eliminate any and all deviation from it.
