Really, Joe?! C’mon man!

Joe Biden calls his son Hunter ‘the smartest guy I know’ amid questions over business dealings at an online event hosted by Oprah Winfrey.

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “Democratic nominee Joe Biden on Wednesday described his son Hunter as ‘the smartest guy I know’ — amid growing questions about the former vice president’s alleged ties to his son’s business dealings.”

So, Hunter’s the smartest guy you know, Joe?

Really?

That would mean he’s smarter than your former boss, Barack Obama, then, wouldn’t it?  

That would mean he’s smarter than you’re your other treasonous friends like Eric Holder, James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Chuck Schumer, Adam Schiff, Jerold Nadler, Robert Mueller, as well as all of the “scientists” and “experts” you know.

On second thought, you’re probably right!

He just might be the smartest person you know!

You should have picked Hunter as your running mate, Joe!

So, what kind of track record does Hunter have that would lead you to this belief, Sleepy Joe?

Well, let’s take a look at some of Hunter’s distinguishing accomplishments.

Hunter Biden met and married Kathleen Buhle in 1993. The two divorced in 2017 after a 22-year marriage that produced three daughters. In divorce papers, Kathleen accused her ex [Hunter] of blowing family funds on drugs and prostitutes.

Nice.

The same year as the split — as was first reported by “Page Six,” Hunter began dating his widowed sister-in-law, Hallie Biden, who had lost her husband, Beau, to brain cancer in 2015.

It was the least that he could do.  

The two began dating while he was recovering from a crack binge, which he explained in a New Yorker interview last July took place while grieving his brother’s death.

Smart.

Hunter had been kicked out of his marital home with then-estranged wife Kathleen over his failure to stay sober, and began spending most nights at Hallie’s house “sharing their grief” over his brother Beau.

Brilliant.

After being made aware, the VP [Joe Biden] and second lady [Jill Biden] offered their blessing of the relationship in a statement.

Of course…, why wouldn’t they?

“We are all lucky that Hunter and Hallie found each other as they were putting their lives together again after such sadness. They have mine and Jill’s full and complete support and we are happy for them,” the two said at the time.

Such a loving family!

In late 2019, Hunter entered a court battle over unpaid child support for a baby he fathered with ex-stripper Lunden Alexis Roberts.

Roberts filed a suit against Hunter in November after he denied being the father of their child, born in August 2018, and subsequently declined to pay child support.

Deadbeat Dad’s are so “in” right now.

In January 2020, an Arkansas judge ruled that Biden was the “biological and legal father” of the baby, noting that a DNA test had showed “with near scientific certainty” that Hunter was the parent.

Well, Joe, we have to follow the science, right?  

The two reached an out-of-court settlement in which Biden agreed to retroactively pay child support going back to November 2018.

A nobler act has never been seen.

Hunter has since gotten remarried to a South African woman named Melissa Cohen, whom he wed just 10 days after meeting her.

So wise as well!

Hunter Biden has long suffered from drug problems, and it even ended his brief attempt at a military career in his 40s. He was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February 2014 after he tested positive for cocaine.

“It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” he said after news of his discharge broke.

I’m sure.

Hunter was arrested in 1988 for drug possession, something he admitted to in a 2006 disclosure form after being nominated to serve on the Amtrak Reform Board by President Bush.

In November 2019, “Page Six” exclusively reported that the former vice president’s son was suspected of smoking crack inside a Washington, DC, strip club where he dropped “thousands of dollars” during multiple visits.

So generous!

The incidents, which took place at Archibald’s Gentlemen’s Club late last year, represents the most recent alleged drug use by Hunter Biden, who has acknowledged six stints in rehab for alcoholism and addiction.

When at first you don’t succeed…

No, really though, we should give him credit for the effort.

Page Six has also spotted Hunter Biden on multiple occasions at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club NYC in Hell’s Kitchen. He was seen on each occasion with a woman who was not a dancer at the club. The two spent thousands each night on pricey booze and were joined by several strippers.

Such a giving person.

At one point, a stripper was scrambling to buy a sex toy so others could use it on him.

No comment.

Hunter has also been accused of profiting off his father’s vice-presidential status by earning tens of thousands of dollars per month to sit on a board for Burisma, a corrupt Ukrainian energy company, in an industry in which he had no prior experience.

Sounds legit.

At the time, Joe Biden led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy.

Huh.  What a coincidence!

Hunter’s role with Burisma raised red flags for some in the Obama administration’s State Department, which a recent Senate Homeland Security Committee report found were raised to Biden and those in his orbit.

Hunter’s action “raised red flags” with Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice over at the State Department?

Now that’s really saying something!   

The 87-page report published late last month noted that two American officials, George Kent, former acting deputy chief of mission at the US Embassy in Kiev, and senior State Department official Amos Hochstein, “raised concerns” to Biden’s staff and directly to Joe Biden.

“Despite the efforts of these individuals, their concerns appear to have fallen on deaf ears,” the report says.

Hmmm, that’s odd.

“Moreover, this investigation has illustrated the extent to which officials within the Obama administration ignored the glaring warning signs when the vice president’s son joined the board of a company owned by a corrupt Ukrainian oligarch.”

And the FBI has sat on Hunter’s infamous laptop for close to a year as well.

Well, after all of the money the Biden’s received from Russia and China, this Ukrainian deal was relatively peanuts.

Joe Biden has said of Hunter, “I have never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings,” including his reported $83,000 monthly pay on Burisma’s board.

That Senate report also found that in 2014, Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the richest woman in Russia and the widow of Yury Luzhkov, the former mayor of Moscow.

One can only imagine what Hunter did to earn $3.5 million from this woman!

Yeeesh!  

Both he and Hunter have denied any wrongdoing with respect to Ukraine, and spokespeople for Joe Biden’s campaign have repeatedly slammed the Senate probe as biased and political.

Deny, deny, deny.

Lie, lie, lie.

That’s the democrat way.  

So, I guess we should all tip out hats to Hunter Biden…, the smartest guy that Lyin’ Joe Biden knows!

Here’s to you Hunter!

U.S. and India sign military agreement.

According to Lauren Frayer and Sushmita Pathak, for National Public Radio, “A week before the U.S. presidential election, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signed a military agreement Tuesday in India before heading to Sri Lanka on a multi-country tour aimed at pushing the Trump administration’s anti-China message.”

“Pompeo was joined in New Delhi by U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper. Together they signed a pact with their Indian counterparts to share sensitive satellite data, often used to steer missiles and drones.”

“It’s the latest in a series of U.S.-India military agreements designed to counter China’s growing power in the Indo-Pacific region.”

U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper (from left), U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Indian Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar address a joint press conference in New Delhi.  Altaf Qadri/AP

‘“Big things are happening as our democracies align to better protect the citizens of our two countries and indeed, of the free world,’ Pompeo said at a news conference held outdoors amid the pandemic.”

“Earlier, Pompeo and Esper met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. They discussed ‘COVID-19 response, security and defense cooperation, and shared interests in a free and open Indo-Pacific,’ according to a statement from the U.S. State Department.”

“Tuesday’s visit comes during a spike in tensions between India and China. The two countries share the world’s longest unmarked border, stretching more than 2,000 miles and with much of it high in the Himalayas. Violence broke out between rival troops there this summer. In June, 20 Indian troops were killed in hand-to-hand combat with Chinese soldiers.”

“Pompeo and Esper laid wreaths at a war memorial in New Delhi early Tuesday. Military buglers played as Pompeo put his hand on his heart. Afterward, he said he was thinking of those 20 Indian troops killed this summer. And he railed against the Chinese Communist Party, or CCP.”

‘“The CCP is no friend to democracy, the rule of law, transparency, nor to freedom of navigation — the foundation of a free and open and prosperous Indo-Pacific,’ Pompeo said.”

“The United States has long viewed India as a bulwark [a defensive wall] against China. The Trump administration has increased military exercises with India and pushed New Delhi to buy more U.S. weapons.”

As I have said before, I believe it is time for the United States to move past its long-held view of India and pursue a true partnership with India.

“Despite Pompeo’s strong anti-China rhetoric, neither Singh nor Minister of External Affairs Subrahmanyam Jaishankar mentioned China by name at their joint news conference with U.S. officials.”

‘“I think it’s significant that [Pompeo and Esper’s visit] is happening even as India is involved in a boundary crisis with China. India might have declined to do a high-profile visit like this with American officials, in case China was provoked further,’ Tanvi Madan, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., said. ‘So, it says something about the U.S.-India relationship.’”

Yes, “it says something about the U.S.-India relationship,” if President Trump is re-elected. 

If Joe Biden becomes president, we can expect him to continue his “China loving ways,” and any consideration of India will take a backseat.

If President Trump wins re-election, I would encourage him to forge an historic alliance with India and other Indo-Pacific countries to deal with China and North Korea.

What I’m suggesting would be an alliance similar to NATO, but in the Indo-Pacific region.

It could be referred to as SPARTA, or the South Pacific And Republic of India Treaty Alliance.

The name has a ring to it…, although the name is not as important as the power it would wield, militarily and economically, against China in the region.

Initially, SPARTA could consist of India, South Korea, Japan, The Philippines, and Australia, perhaps, and it could expand its members from there.

The threat the Chinese Communist Party poses around the world must be addressed soon, and addressed head-on.

A strong partnership between India and the U.S. would be a very good start in the right direction.

China’s virus “crisis.”

“The Chinese use two brush strokes to write the word ‘crisis.’ One brush stroke stands for danger; the other for opportunity. In a crisis, be aware of the danger–but recognize the opportunity.”  ― John F. Kennedy

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, “The Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.”

Wait, what?!

Let’s hear that again.

According to Sam Dorman of Fox News, “THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT INTENTIONALLY MANUFACTURED AND RELEASED THE COVID-19 VIRUS THAT LED TO MASS SHUTDOWNS AND DEATHS ACROSS THE WORLD A TOP VIROLOGIST AND WHISTLEBLOWER told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.”

Well, if you’re a liberal, you can’t be much more credentialed than that…, a scientist and a whistleblower?!!!

It would appear that China calculated the DANGER of the virus to themselves, while recognizing the OPPORTUNITY to enhance their position on economic playing fields all around the world, and especially with the United States, and deemed this trade-off to be acceptable.

Even though the virus originated in China, China comes in ranked 41st for number of cases with 85,223 and only 4,634 deaths.

How could that be?

The US is ranked first in cases with 6.72 million cases and 200,000 deaths.

India is ranked second with 5.12 million cases and 83,200 deaths.

And Brazil is ranked third with 4.42 million cases and 34,000 deaths.

Is it coincidence that three of the top four democracies in the world ended-up being the hardest hit in the world, by far?

And that’s not to mention the collateral damage worldwide regarding the economic, social, general health and mental health impact to all of the countries around the world.

Just some food for thought.

“Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese Communist Party released the virus ‘on purpose.’ ‘Yes, of course, it’s intentionally,’ she responded on ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight.’”

“Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization [WHO] reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation.”

‘“So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab … and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage.’”

“Yan’s comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: ‘If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what’s out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated — the way the mutations have naturally evolved.’”

Excuse me Dr. Fauci…, but you have no idea what the hell you’re talking about here.

You have absolutely no idea of what went on in that Wuhan lab.

And, you’re only throwing shade on the idea of the virus being man-made because you and your deep state friends are all a part of problem.

“Other scientists have also panned the idea that COVID-19 served as a sort of bioweapon or was released by a lab.”

On what basis have they “panned” the idea?

These other scientists also have absolutely no idea of what went on in that Wuhan lab, and should just keep their opinions to themselves.

You can always find a gaggle of “other scientists” who will either agree or disagree with whatever narrative you wish to promote.

We are all aware of this now, so citing scientific support really doesn’t add any value to your propaganda anymore.

Just sayin”.

“Fox News previously reported on Yan back in July, when she blew the whistle on China’s alleged attempts to suppress information about its handling of the virus. With a vast network of contacts in Chinese medical facilities, Yan attempted to gather more information about the virus as China blocked overseas experts from conducting research in the country.”

“Her revelations fueled ongoing complaints that the Chinese government failed to tell the world early on about the virus’ threat. Specifically, she believes the Chinese government ignored research that could have saved lives. The State Department did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.”

And the ever-complicit fake news media has, of course, chosen to ignore Dr. Li-Meng Yan, while choosing to support their good friends in the Chinese Communist Party.

“In response, her former employer, the University of Hong Kong, criticized her account. A press release noted ‘that the content of the said news report does not accord with the key facts as we understand them.’”

‘“Specifically, Dr Yan never conducted any research on human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus at [the University of Hong Kong] during December 2019 and January 2020, her central assertion of the said interview.’”

Please remember that the Chinese Communist party’s fake news is even faker than our own fake news…, so what was said there is to be completely expected.

“Yan, who said she was one of the first scientists in the world to study the novel coronavirus, fled China and currently fears retaliation. She was allegedly asked by her supervisor at the University/WHO reference lab, Dr. Leo Poon, in 2019 to look into the odd cluster of SARS-like cases coming out of mainland China at the end of December 2019.”

Now, let’s dive a little deeper down the rabbit hole.

Why would the US have funded the controversial Wuhan lab?

Wait…, what?

That’s right…, the US funded the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology; the level four virus Chinese research facility.

Wait…, say again.

The US funded the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology; the level four virus Chinese research facility.

I ask you…, why in God’s name would we be funding anything the Chinese Communist Party is doing?!

In case you forgot, we are already in debt to China up to our eyeballs, and here we are funding the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology; the level four virus Chinese research facility?!!!

I keep feeling our government is incredibly stupid, but then I have to remember they only want us to think they’re inept, when in reality they are corrupt and calculating.

Justin Fendos, a professor at Dongseo University in South Korea, for The Diplomat, an international online news magazine, reports that “Newsweek recently put out some surprising reports that the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) had funded the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV). The WIV is the level four research facility suspected by some of being a possible source for the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has already been on record confirming and defending this funding, saying it was ‘to protect American people from labs that aren’t up to standard.’”

Nice try Mike…, but I’m not biting on that one. Please don’t tell me that you are one of “them” too?!

“According to Newsweek, funding for the WIV occurred in two phases. The first took place from 2014 to 2019, through a $3.7 million project for collecting and studying bat coronaviruses. This work was largely led by Dr. Zhengli Shi, known to many as ‘batwoman’ for her years investigating caves in search of new bat viruses.”

Okay, this phase I can understand, being started during Obama’s time in office.

“The second phase began shortly after, with another $3.7 million. Unlike the first, this project appears to have included work on ‘gain-of-function’ research that investigates how a virus can gain the ability to infect a new type of animal.”

Now this second phase is the one I don’t understand.  I’m guessing the Trump administration was just unaware of this funding, and now Pompeo is just trying to justify it somehow.

“Anyone with a vague sense of current events would, understandably, be concerned that COVID-19 might have been produced through this research.”

Ya think?!

“The connections to the NIH would also be unsettling, offering the possibility that the U.S. government may be complicit, having unnecessarily ‘outsourced’ dangerous research.”

Again, ya think?!

I’m not only “concerned” and “unsettled,” I’m disgusted and outraged.

“Although strong denials by both Chinese and American officials and several pieces of scientific research have concluded COVID-19 is not man-made, the connection between the NIH and WIV still behooves critical examination.”

Again, the obligatory denials and supportive research by the co-conspirators is to be expected.

“Why would the NIH want to fund the WIV to begin with?” Professor Fendos asks.

Yes…, exactly…, why would they?

Let’s take a look at the possible lame reasons they are prepared to offer!

“The first, and perhaps most important reason, may be just as Pompeo said: to help bring Chinese labs up to higher safety standards.”

Oh, yes!  This is a major concern of ours.  None of our other social programs in this country could use almost $8 million.  No, not at all.

“Another reason the NIH may have decided to provide funding is to help foster international cooperation and better communication.”

Oh, yes!  We can all see China’s increased willingness to cooperate now!

“A third reason could be the fact that the United States has long held a fierce debate about the ethics and risks of gain-of-function (GOF) research. Critics, such as Harvard epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch, have argued that such work ‘entails a unique risk that a laboratory accident could spark a pandemic, killing millions.’”

Would that include an intentional “laboratory accident?”

“Unfortunately, from the public’s perspective, reports about the connection between the NIH and WIV are at risk of feeding conspiracy theory fires. With some Chinese officials already blaming the United States for the pandemic and the Trump administration appearing intent on blaming China in return without divulging any decisive evidence, it is quite difficult, even for experts, to develop a fully-informed opinion about what exactly happened. And therein lies a dangerous problem: unanswered questions can only deepen peoples’ suspicions about science.”

“Feeding conspiracy theory fires?!

“Chinese officials blaming the United States for the pandemic?!

No “decisive evidence?!”

HOW CAN CHINA, WITH A STARIGHT FACE, POSSIBLY BLAME THE UNITED STATES FOR THIS VIRUS THAT ORIGINATED IN CHINA (MAN-MADE OR NOT) AND WAS INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED TO LEAVE CHINA AND INFECT THE REST OF THE WORLD?!!!!!!!!!

HOW?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Put simply, the circumstantial evidence surrounding the WIV and its connections to the NIH are a bad look for science.”

Not to mention the Chinese Communist Party and the liberal “deep state” in the United States.

And do you think using the term “bad look” is appropriate?

I was thinking more of a term like a “politically corrupt look,” or how about an “inexcusably evil look?”

“As the pandemic rages on, the worst possible thing is for the rumor mill to latch onto uncertainties and convince more people that the voice of science is not to be trusted.”

Translation: The worst possible thing would be for the whole ugly truth to come out about this virus.

“COVID-19 may have begun in a lab, or not. Either way, the only thing that remains certain is that science will be the brightest light guiding us out of the pandemic. Since there will be plenty of time to divvy blame later.”

I’m sorry professor, but there won’t be “plenty of time to divvy blame later” for the 941,000 people who have died from the China virus, so far.

Nike’s slave labor hypocrisy.

Yes…, Nike and their social justice, mouthpiece, tool, Colin Kaepernick, need to answer for their slave labor hypocrisy.

anike 7

Steven W. Mosher for The New York Post writes, “Nike should quit lecturing on social justice — and atone for using slave labor in China.”

anike 2

“The Social Justice Warriors who run Nike, for example, pompously inform us that they are fighting ‘against discrimination in communities worldwide.’ Not only that but they are ‘working every day to erase the stain of racism and the damage of injustice.’”

Words, words, words.

Again, we see another shining example of liberal hypocrisy, and their “do as I say, not as I do” manifesto.

aban 14

anike 4

Remember…, in the liberal fascist world, it’s more important to say the right things than to do the right things.

Just think about it.

Nike has the nerve to “pompously” lecture to the rest of us about social justice and America’s evil slavery past, while they utilize slave labor to produce their products.

“Really, Nike? Then why do you have your shoes made by an oppressive, morally bankrupt regime? China is the ugly poster child, the living exemplar, for all of the evils that you are so quick to condemn America for.”

anike 6

America is a convenient “punching bag” for all of these “holier than thou’ types.

And, Nike can get away with this because the liberal, propagandist, mainstream media, is complicit with their behavior and it is not even reported on.

anike 13

Again…, propaganda by omission.

Serious, actual truth seeking, journalists, should be all over a story like this, but instead we find these “journalists” turning their backs on this hypocrisy.

And it’s not just a political, or a social hypocrisy…, it’s an evil genocidal type of hypocritical allowance.

“Right now, at this very moment, the Chinese Communists are eliminating the Uyghurs [/ˈwēˌɡo͝orz/], a [Muslim] Turkish-speaking people who live in China’s Far West, from the face of the earth.”

“They’ve locked up over a million Uyghur men in concentration camps, aborted and sterilized hundreds of thousands of the women, and are busy selling the young — in batches of 100, no less — to Chinese factory owners as slave labor.”

anike 14

“Secret drone footage has revealed some of the brutality of this campaign. It shows hundreds of Uyghur men, handcuffed, blindfolded and heads shaved, being herded onto a train bound for a secret camp.”

“But it’s even worse for Nike, the ‘wokest’ of ‘woke’ companies.”

It’s true…, just ask ‘em.

“It turns out that some of these Uyghurs have been slaving away making basketball shoes with the famous swoosh on them.”

“An Australian Strategic Policy Institute report published this March, ‘Uyghurs for sale,’ found Uyghur slave labor working in factories supplying 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing, shoe and automotive sectors, including Apple, GM, Gap — and Nike.”

“Nike contracts with a Qingdao company, for example, that as of January of this year had 600 Uyghurs cobbling together its shoes.”

“Yes, the same company that funds organizations asking for reparations for a practice that ended in the US in 1865 has actually used slave labor in China to make its products — and its profits — for many years.”

Tell me again WHO should be cancelled?!

anike 15

“Like Nike, the pro-sports officials, owners and athletes of the NFL and the NBA who are making big money off the China market have also turned a blind eye to the brutal oppression of minorities there, all the while making ‘woke’ noises about how racist America is.”

What we really have here is a bunch of guilty, rich (but stupid) people, who are being manipulated and used by some very smart Marxists.

anike 12

“The poster child for all of this anti-American demagoguery is NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who in 2018 signed a multi-million-dollar contract to become a megaphone for Nike products.”

anike 5

“I wonder if the same man who kneels to protest America’s slave-owning past might one day stand for the freedom of slaves in China. It would only be fitting. It was Uyghur slaves, after all, who might have stitched his Kaepernick brand of Air Force 1 shoes together.”

Ouch.

anike 9

anike 8

“While we wait for that moment of self-awareness to strike the young [and bogus] progressive [Kaepernick], we at least have the redoubtable Josh Hawley. The Missouri senator this week tweeted Nike and the NBA to ask them to certify that their products are ‘Slave Free.’”

anike 3

“Nike has pledged to donate ‘$100 million over the next 10 years to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality, social justice and greater access to education.’”

Ha!

Ya, they couldn’t run to the bank fast enough to through millions of dollars at The Black Lives Matter organization.

This, of course, is money they have as a result of utilizing slave labor in the first place.

Funny how that works, isn’t it?

“But I have a better idea, Nike. Why don’t you take the blood money you have earned from employing slave labor in China and open a factory in the US? Choose a site in the inner city, employ minorities, and provide jobs and a way out of poverty.”

“That would go a lot further toward ensuring racial equality and social justice, not to mention hope for the future of America, than anything else you could do.”

Now there’s an excellent idea, Mr. Mosher!

Ya…, why wouldn’t you do that, Nike?

I know!

The answer begins with an “M,” ends with a “Y,” and has “O-N-E” in the middle.

That’s right!

Our old friend “money” is the answer again, just like it always is, everything else, and I mean everything else, be damned.

The NBA is confused and hypocritical, as usual.

Yes, my friends, the NBA (The “National Bewildered Airheads” league), also sometimes known as the National Basketball Aassociation, is at it, again.

The league, its commissioner, and 99.9% of its players, are now back to displaying their ignorance, stupidity, and greed, on a nightly and daily basis…, led by their own social justice czar, comrade SheBron, er, I mean comrade LeBron James. .

anba 3

Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News reports, “CNN, MSNBC avoid explosive NBA story of human rights abuses at its China training academies.”

“CNN’s Wolf Blitzer ignored the subject during interview with the NBA commissioner.”

Just another example of “propaganda by omission.”

“From human rights abuses to the treatment of Hong Kong, the NBA’s stance on China is ‘very disappointing,’ says Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, Republican member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.”

Not to mention “very disingenuous.”

anba 9

anba 4

“ESPN ran earlier this week an explosive story about human rights abuses that allegedly took place at the NBA’s training academies in China, but viewers of CNN and MSNBC have been kept in the dark about it.’

Yeah, like many other things as well.

ESPN apparently didn’t get the “hands-off China” memo.

anba 7

“The bombshell report alleged that the young participants in the NBA program were physically beaten by Chinese instructors and were not provided proper schooling, despite commissioner Adam Silver’s previous commitment that education would be ‘central’ to the program.”

anba 8

Oh, “Education” is central to the program alright!

The Communist Party of China is “educating” these kids real good, although their idea of “education” may not be the same as Adam Silver’s, or then again, maybe it is.

Did I mention that Adam Silver hails from Uranus?  The planet Uranus?

anba 1

Anyway, “A former league employee compared the atmosphere when he worked in Xinjiang to ‘World War II Germany,’ ESPN reported.”

That would be some kind of comparison to the Nazi fascists, I suppose.

Hey…, that just means this Communist Chinese “education” is quite similar to the “education” our college students receive here in The States!

It’s more of an indoctrination than an education.

“China wasn’t mentioned either in CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer’s lengthy interview with NBA commissioner Silver, which took place nearly two hours after ESPN published its report.”

“Instead, Blitzer spent the roughly 16-minute interview discussing the NBA’s ability to resume its season amid the coronavirus outbreak.”

“CNN is notably a TimeWarner-owned sister network of TNT, which has a major partnership with the NBA.”

And, of course, Blitzer disclosed this partnership, right?

Nope.

“Both liberal networks had also failed to address the reportedly abusive training academies on their websites, as of Thursday night.”

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.

anba 16

“ESPN’s report detailed how the NBA training academies in China appeared to be largely under the control of the Chinese government.”

Just to let these people know…, EVERYTHING in China falls “largely under the control of the Chinese government.”

Just sayin’.

“Multiple NBA employees filed complaints about how they witnessed Chinese coaches ‘strike teenage players’ and the lack of education provided to the young participants.”

“One former coach told ESPN he watched a Chinese coach ‘fire a ball into a young player’s face at point-blank range and then ‘kick him in the gut.’”

Hmmm…, sounds like the rioters’ treatment of some of our police officers.

So, what’s the problem?

“According to ESPN, NBA officials asked current and former employees not to speak to the sports network about the exposé, with one email from a public relations official reading, ‘Please don’t mention that you have been advised by the NBA not to respond.’”

Such candor…, such transparency, such support of social justice on display here!

Ugh.

‘“You can’t have it both ways,’ one former employee told ESPN. You can’t be over here in February promoting Black History Month and be over in China, where they’re in reeducation camps, and all the people that you’re partnering with are hitting kids.’”

You sure can!

It’s in the Geneva Convention!

It says right in there that the NBA is “allowed to be as stupid and hypocritical as it deems necessary!”

anba 17

“Over the past year, the NBA’s intense relationship with China has been scrutinized after the league’s players and coaches have largely refrained from criticizing the country’s human rights violations and expressing support for Hong Kong.”

That’s because IT’S ALLLLLLLLLLLL ABOUT THE MONEY!!!

All the NBA can see is China’s 1.4 billion people shoveling money into the league and its players.

You can overlook an awful lot for billions and billions of dollars.

Just look at our own democrat party if you don’t believe me!

anba 10

“Earlier this month, criticism of the NBA’s ties to China was renewed after it was discovered that customers were prohibited from ordering custom gear that read ‘Free Hong Kong’ on its online store.”

anba 6

The nerve of these people!

“The store’s operator, Fanatics, suggested the phrase was ‘inadvertently prohibited’ and the ban was lifted. Days later though, the NBA pulled all custom gear from its online store.”

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

anba 15

Do they really think people fall for all of these lame excuses?

I guess they do…, they keep coming up with them, over, and over, and over again.

“ESPN’s prominent NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski also raised eyebrows when he sent Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., a profane response to the lawmaker’s criticism of the league’s decision of ‘pre-approved, social justice slogans’ while ‘censoring support’ for law enforcement and criticism of the Chinese Communist Party.”

anba 5

Not to mention supporting and advertising for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) anti-American, Marxist, organization.

anba 11

anba 12

As I have said before…, saying that “black lives matter,” and supporting the concept that “black lives matter,” is quite different from actually supporting (and giving money to) the organization, or group, Black Lives Matter (BLM).

Adrian Wojnarowski sounds more like an NBA defender, or proponent, here as opposed to a “reporter.”

“Wojnarowski issued an apology and was temporarily suspended by the network.”

Whatever.

Well, you know what our Chinese friends say, don’t you?

“Bèndàn, jìdé tóupiào jǐ mínzhǔdǎng rén!”

This translates to: “Remember to vote for the democrats, you idiots!”

Who’s paying to destroy America?

Lara Logan, of Fox News, says, and I also believe, that, “Paid professional anarchists are turning peaceful protests into riots.”

She believes these anti-America elements and agitators are hijacking protesters and groups, who are supposedly functioning in the name of social justice, and using them instead to carry out their Marxist agendas.

adestroy 14

They are going by the same playbook, and using the same tactics, that our government agencies and groups employ when trying to cause unrest and regime change in other foreign countries, according to Logan, who has discussed this with those very people.

The term “color revolution” is the term that has been used, in the last couple of years, to describe these techniques that are used to overthrow a government.

adestroy 4

Logan also points to graffiti she has seen recently, “ACAB,” which she has also seen in other countries.  “ACAB” stands for “all cops are bastards.”  And they mean “all cops.”  White cops, Black cops, Hispanic cops, Asian cops…, all cops, regardless of race.

adestroy 1

adestroy 2

adestroy 3

It’s not about racial injustice for these Marxists…, it’s about creating anarchy in our country and destroying America.

These riots are not just protesters venting their frustration.

Again…, these riots are being instigated by paid professionals.

The real question we should be asking is, “Who’s paying?”

Who’s paying for this destruction of America?

The really sad part about this is I believe the answer is already known.

How could “we” not at this point?

adestroy 5

adestroy 6

adestroy 13

adestroy 7

And if “we” know, why aren’t “we” holding these people accountable?

Is it for the same reason “we” don’t seem to hold any of these upper level democrats/liberals, and deep state vermin, accountable for their actions?

I guess that tells us that the democrat’s/liberal’s side, and the anti-America agitator’s side, and the people financing this anti-America activity side, ARE ONE IN THE SAME SIDE!

adestroy 10

IT’S TIME FOR PEOPLE TO STAND UP AND PICK A SIDE IN THIS FIGHT!

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA SURVIVE AS A BEACON OF FREEDOM IN THIS WORLD, OR YOU DON’T.

EITHER YOU WANT A GOVERNMENT “BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE,” OR YOU WANT TO END UP LIVING UNDER AN OPPRESSIVE COMMUNIST REGIME.  (NOTE: THERE ISN’T ANY OTHER KIND OF COMMUNIST REGIME.)

The words of Abraham Lincoln, to honor the soldiers that sacrificed their lives in order “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,” were spoken at Gettysburg, but these words apply as well to the countless soldiers that died for the cause of democracy in the following 150 years.

adestroy 11

EITHER YOU WANT TO SEE AMERICA, AS WE KNOW IT, PERISH FROM THE EARTH, OR YOU DON’T.

PICK A SIDE.

THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND HERE.

Those democrats sure do love them some China!

Well, I suppose…, China is a communist country after all.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “House Dem praises China’s ‘discipline’ on coronavirus, and says Trump brings US into ‘parallel universe.’”

‘“They’re [China is] faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she said.”

achina 6

“Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif. [a Nancy Pelosi wannabe], ripped the federal government’s response to the coronavirus, comparing it unfavorably to the way China handled the disease.”

achina 1

Is there no end to these brain-dead representatives from California?

It seems like we just continue to hear this “stupidness” from one after the other.

It’s a virtual parade of liberal fools trying to outdo each other!

‘“You look at China with so much more in terms of population … and they’re faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she told MSNBC [MSDNC] on Monday.”

Oh yes, Jackie…, their discipline is just soooo impressive!

I didn’t hear you mention how China reacted very quickly…, restricting flights within their own country, in and out of Wuhan, while allowing international flights to spread their virus around the rest of the world.

Wasn’t that an awesome way of handling the disease, Ms. Speier?

The fact that you are giving China ANY kind of praise in this matter is utterly disgusting.

In my opinion, the rest of the world should isolate China, and hold them accountable, make them pay, and pay dearly, for all of the lives lost and hardship they inflicted on the rest of the world.

But you wouldn’t have any interest in that would you, Ms. Speier?

achina 8

achina 7

achina 9

“She called out President Trump, accusing him of spreading false information and failing to provide leadership for the states.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd.  When’s the last time you heard a democrat congressperson from California accusing President Trump of something?

I believe it only occurs on a daily basis.

‘“Unfortunately, the president brings us into this parallel universe, where he talks about hydroxychloroquine as if that’s going to be a solution, and then we find out that can actually hurt people and create heart problems,’ she said.”

Thank you for your input “Dr.” Speier…, albeit misleading and disingenuous.

And talk about living in a “parallel universe!”

‘“He said anyone can get a test that wants a test. That of course isn’t the case – and he’s never really invoked the Defense Production Act. So, we are scraping for the testing agents that we need. So, there’s a total lack of leadership on the federal level. So you have states doing very different things. And that’s why we are not being able to rein in this virus.’”

So, so…, so, so, so.

The facts are, Ms. Speier, that we lead the world in testing, by a wide margin.  No one is even close…, not even your beloved China.

And he hasn’t really invoked the Defense Production Act because he didn’t have to!

Manufacturers from across the country stepped up and did what was needed to be done at the request of The President, in cooperation, as opposed to by order.

And, yes, states are doing different things, because different states are in different situations, regarding the Chinese virus.

“Her comments came amid a broader debate about the way U.S. media outlets covered China’s response. The issue garnered renewed attention after reports surfaced indicating that China had suppressed information about the pandemic’s impact on the country.”

Really?!

China “suppressed information?”

No way!

achina 10

achina 12

Who’da thunk it?

“Some outlets have favorably compared China’s response to that of the U.S., while other reports have uncritically repeated China’s claim that it saw no new coronavirus deaths in April.”

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”

achina 5

“Writing in the Washington Examiner last week, T. Beckett Adams accused media outlets of spreading ‘Chinese communist propaganda.’”

Ya think?

There’s no end to the collection of Chinese “tools” and useful idiots out there to help China put themselves in the best light.

“Adams highlighted a Foreign Policy report alleging that China’s government directed media outlets not to publish negative information about its response to the pandemic.”

“In the Foreign Policy article, reporter Tracy Wen Liu said she was ‘repeatedly shut down by authorities’ when she tried reporting on the virus. She added ‘that [t]he government sent dozens of journalists to Wuhan to shape the narrative around the virus.’”

That’s what communist regimes, and the American fake news media, do.  They “shape” their liberal narrative rather than report the facts.

“Liu said Beijing’s suppression included mass removals of COVID-19 patients’ online pleas for help.”

“Similarly, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, has accused the Chinese government of knowing about the coronavirus long before it acknowledged its existence to the world.”

What is Representative Speier’s opinion about that?

Imagine yourself waiting for a very long time while only hearing the sound of crickets in the background.

That’s the democrat’s, and the fake news media’s, response to that accusation.

And who is this Congresswoman Jackie Speier?

We haven’t really heard much from her up until now, but she does have an interesting past.

It turns out she was one of the people shot and left for dead at the site of the “Jonestown Massacre,” over 40 years ago.

On Nov. 18, 1978, she was shot five times on a remote airstrip in Guyana, South America.  Her boss, Rep. Leo J. Ryan and four others lay dead nearby, killed by gunfire as they tried to escape Jonestown, the commune built by cult leader Jim Jones.

achina 3

She didn’t suffer any brain damage as a result of the shooting, did she?

That would help explain things.

She accompanied Ryan and 23 other people to Guyana, on the northeastern coast of South America, attempting to visit Jim Jones and nearly 1,000 followers he’d amassed.

By the end of the trip, Ryan was dead, the first and only congressman to be assassinated in office, along with three journalists and one cult defector. Speier and nine others had been shot and left for dead at a remote air strip.  They waited 22 hours there for help to arrive.

Immediately following the shootings, Jones and more than 900 of his followers died from self-inflicted cyanide poisoning in what was seen as a mass suicide at the time, but is now widely considered a mass murder.

Speier has occupied Ryan’s former seat in Congress since 2008.

achina 2

Speier had a long recovery ahead.  Shot five times, she spent two months in the hospital and had 10 surgeries.

Speier is now a member of the nefarious House Intelligence Committee…, led by her treasonous congressional cohort, Adam Schiff.

India, the United States, and China.

India and the United States are the two largest democracies in the world.  In my opinion, these two countries should be “joined at the hip’ regarding matters of defense and their economies.

achinaindia 5

achinaindia 11

Yes, “America first” for Americans, and yes, “India first” for Indians…, but helping each other out as much as possible economically and militarily does not fly against the concept of “America first” or “India first.“  Our cooperation with each other and consideration of each other will only help to strengthen both countries, strengthen both democracies, and democracy around the world.

achinaindia 7

Both of our countries should be strategic partners in the fight against tyrants, communism and terrorism…, for these are the true enemies of democracy and freedom.

It would behoove the United States to support and partner with India…, as India finds itself geographically close and closer to our common countries of concern…, like China, Russia, Iran and North Korea.

I implore President Trump and Prime Minister Modi to build on their positive relationship, and take our countries’ relationship and cooperation to the next level.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi shakes hand with US President Donald Trump during the ‘Namaste Trump’ event

It could only be a win-win proposition.

The truth is, however, that the vast majority of Americans are either uninterested, uninformed, or misinformed, about what’s going on in their own country…, much less what’s going on in India.

That being said…,

According to Peter Suciu, for the “National Interest” website, “Thousands of soldiers from both China and India have been locked in a standoff for the better part of a month. Among the ongoing issues is the strategic road through the Galwan Valley in Ladkh that India has been building – a move opposed by China.”

achinaindia 2

“India has fallen far behind China’s military, but today both countries share the out-sized ambition to be a ‘great power’ in Asia—if not the most powerful. China and India have, respectively, the largest and second-largest militaries on the continent and the highest and second-highest defense budgets. Both have huge domestic defense industries as well.”

“For now, cooler heads have prevailed, but just as India and Pakistan continue to face one another in the region, so too will India and China.”

Dinesh Kumar, who is a defense analyst for The Sunday Guardian Live website, reported in January that, “Army Day on Tuesday, 15 January, will see an impressive display of soldiers and war-fighting equipment. But behind the pomp is an unsatisfactory story.”

achinaindia 4

achinaindia 8

“The Army will celebrate Army Day with the Chief of Army Staff taking the salute at the customary Army parade in the Delhi Cantonment parade ground with much fanfare. The same Army Day parade contingents will form a dominant part of the annual Republic Day parade on 26 January on Raj Path, Delhi’s most iconic road that links Rashtrapati Bhavan to India Gate.”

“But behind the impressive display of soldiers and war fighting equipment at these two monumental parades continues an unsatisfactory story: A disappointing and worrisome story of under-preparedness, deficiency and obsolescence. This sordid state of affairs has been in perpetuity since long [ago] and nothing tangible seems to have been done to reverse this negative state of affairs.”

“Consider the following: The Indian Army’s equipment is officially calculated at 68% vintage, 24% current and only 8% state-of-the-art.”

“How prepared is the Army to fight an intense or long conventional war? ‘Not very,’ is the short answer.”

“Parades and brave statements apart, the government needs to ensure that the country’s last and ultimate instrument is never found wanting. This is a neglect that India can ill afford.”

A weakened and neglectful India is something democracy around the world can ill afford as well.

The world needs a strong United States and a strong India.

At the very least, and as a good starting point, India should become a member of NATO…, and the United States should be the one to invite them in.

Eventually, however, I would like to see and grand partnership between India and the United States that would far exceed a NATO-type of alliance.

This partnership would be especially helpful when dealing with China in regards to their “attack” on the rest of the world, with their intentional spreading of the coronavirus around the world and their uncooperativeness regarding pertinent investigations and research.

achinaindia 10

Let’s make no mistake about this…, China is an adversary of democracy and freedom everywhere.

China and its evil intentions are not going away.

achinaindia 9

How we choose to deal with them is the only question.

I would really like to hear from my Indian friends and followers on this matter.

Do any people in India have the same appetite for an enhanced relationship between our two countries, as I do…, or am I barking up an uninterested tree here?

COVID-19, China, The World Health Organization, and the rest of the world.

According to Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News, “The World Health Organization (WHO) continues to lavish China with praise for their handling of coronavirus crisis.”

ahealth 1

“Valentine’s Day may have been three months ago, but the sometimes too-close-for-comfort relationship between the World Health Organization and China is still burning bright.”

“WHO officials renewed their praise for China and its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, citing Beijing’s ‘openness’ to the prospect of scientific inquires involving foreign experts into the origins of the contagion.”

Well, isn’t that special?

ahealth 15

“WHO’s emergencies chief Dr. Michael Ryan said he has ‘day-to-day’ discussions with colleagues in China and commended the country for working well with other nations eager to understand the animal origins of COVID-19.”

ahealth 7

‘“I am very pleased to hear a very consistent message coming from China, which is one of openness to such an approach,’ Ryan said.”

Thanking China for their openness and cooperation at this point is like thanking the NAZIs for appearing at the Nuremberg Trials!

BAM!

“At a Geneva news conference Monday, Ryan said he didn’t believe a date had been set for an international mission to be sent to China to explore the origin of the virus, ‘but we look forward to doing that as soon as possible.’”

“The symbiotic relationship China enjoys with the WHO has been repeatedly criticized by the United States.”

ahealth 4

ahealth 5

I wouldn’t go as far as to say, and generalize that “this relationship has been criticized by the United States.”

President Trump and certain conservatives have criticized this relationship.

The democrats and their friends in the liberal propaganda media tend to side with the WHO regarding China’s behavior.

ahealth 6

“President Trump has called the WHO a ‘pipe organ’ for China in its handling of the deadly outbreak that’s infected 5.5 million people and killed more than 347,000 worldwide.”

“Trump also pointed to unsubstantiated claims that the virus was created and/or leaked from a lab in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the epicenter of the crisis. Lab officials, the WHO and China have denied the claims.”

You don’t say?

ahealth 14

“China has reported a total of 4,634 deaths from the disease among 82,992 cases.”

Wait…, what are those numbers again?

So, the virus began in Wuhan, China, and they’ve only had 82,992 cases and 4,634 deaths in China vs, 5,500,000 cases and 347,000 deaths around the rest of the world?

New York City alone has had 199,968 cases and 21,362 deaths!

Please think about those numbers.

That means even though the virus started in China, they’ve only experienced 1.5% of the cases and 1.3% of the deaths?

I’m sorry, but either they’re way under-reporting their numbers, or they knew what they were dealing with much earlier and from the start.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is the Director of WHO, and not a medical doctor.  He is the first non-physician in the role.

ahealth 2

Tedros has said that China “bought the world time with their actions,” even though China banned domestic travel within their own country, but allowed flights to go all over an unsuspecting world, spreading the virus far and wide.

ahealth 3

That action alone should be considered a biological act of war against the world by China.

I’m sorry, but how else can this be viewed?

And China certainly didn’t buy the world any time.

They sentenced 350,000 innocent people to death, and that number is still growing.

But our own, esteemed, Dr. Fauci praises Tedros and feels he’s doing a good job.

Doing a good job as being a front man for China, perhaps, but that’s about it.

ahealth 10

ahealth 11

And the United States plays the fool again…, pumping over $115 million dollars annually into this bogus organization, while China pays $57 million, and other countries pay much less than that.

Just another case of, “thank you, sir, may I have another?”

And, of course, the democrats and the liberal propaganda media are criticizing President Trump for even suggesting we cut our funding to the WHO, or at least lower our level of funding.

Really, whose side are these people on?

Surprise, surprise, surprise!

amostprep 12

Well, ga-a-a-aaoooolly.

amostprep 13

Well, who’d a thunk it?!

amostprep 6

amostprep 11

After all of the gnashing of teeth…,

After all of the wringing of hands…,

And after all of the whining…,

It seems that The United States was the most prepared to deal with our current pandemic, although you would think our government was and is failing miserably on every level, according to the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news, media.

amostprep 10

Gregg Re of Fox News reports, “US was more prepared for pandemic than any other country, a Johns Hopkins study found.”

amostprep 2

Johns Hopkins University is a private research university in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1876.  The university has led the way to revolutionize higher education in the U.S. by integrating teaching and research. Over the course of several decades, the university has led all U.S. universities in annual research and development expenditures. Johns Hopkins is organized into 10 divisions on campuses in Maryland and Washington, D.C., with international centers in Italy and China.

“The United States was ranked the best-prepared country in the world to handle a pandemic in late 2019 by the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) and the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security (JHCHS) — an assessment seemingly at odds with claims by Democrats that the Trump administration left the country vulnerable to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.”

amostprep 1

“The Global Health Security Index was ‘developed with guidance from an international panel of experts from 13 countries, with research by the Economist Intelligence Unit,’ The Washington Post reported last year. ‘More than 100 researchers spent a year collecting and validating publicly available data.’”

Ok…, let’s deal with the facts, dumocrats!

Let’s listen to the researchers and scientists here, as you are so fond of saying.

Ahhh, the scientists…, the liberal equals of “high priests!”

Let’s listen to the “experts,” they cry!

This is just another example, the latest example, of your false narrative being totally discredited.

We’ve heard you declaring that President Trump had slashed the CDC budget.

We’ve heard you say that important support personnel in the CDC had been “trimmed away” by President Trump.

We’ve heard you say The President has silenced or muffled those on his coronavirus team or in his administration who disagree with him.

False, false, false and FALSE!!!

A thousand times FALSE!

It doesn’t seem to stop the fake news, however.

They just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

The dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media have absolutely no shame.

“President Trump’s campaign has argued in recent days that misinformation may be one of the leading causes of that lack of confidence.”

Actually, I believe the whole perception of a “lack of confidence” in the first place, is a misinformation campaign by the fake news.

Additionally, “Trump’s team has pointed to claims by presidential contender Joe Biden that ‘no one on the National Security Council staff was put in charge’ of pandemic preparedness, based on a report that in May 2018, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton eliminated the NSC’s Office of Global Health Security and Biodefense in a reorganization effort.”

“Rear Adm. R. Timothy Ziemer reportedly was ousted as senior director, and no replacement was named. But, FactCheck.org has determined that the matter amounted to a reorganization, and that ‘some team members [of the NSC pandemic office] were shifted to other groups, and others took over some of [the top official’s] duties.’”

“Separately, the Biden team has repeatedly argued that the president once referred to coronavirus as a ‘hoax.’ That claim has been refuted by numerous fact-checkers, including the Post’s, which found that Trump was clearly referring to Democrats’ efforts to blame him for the pandemic, not the virus itself.”

“Additionally, numerous Democrats, including Biden, have falsely claimed that the president cut the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) budget. The Associated Press has noted that those claims ‘distort’ the facts.”

“Instead, financing has [actually] increased.”

amostprep 9

“Some public health experts say a bigger concern than White House budgets is the steady erosion of a CDC grant program for state and local public health emergency preparedness — the front lines in detecting and battling new disease. But that decline was set in motion by a congressional budget measure that predates Trump.”

“Nevertheless, misleading reports about the Trump campaign’s pandemic response efforts have continued to spread.”

Like I said, the dumocrats and the liberal propaganda, fake news media just shake their latest disproven lie off and spout off another one the next day.

It’s actually hard to keep up with all of their lies and misinformation.

That’s all a part of their strategy I imagine.

“A recent report by Reuters that the U.S. had recently terminated a CDC position in China was widely cited by Democrats and reporters as evidence of a lack of preparedness, and formed the basis for a reporter’s question at a recent White House coronavirus briefing.”

amostprep 3

“But, the article itself made clear that experts didn’t think the move had anything to do with the spread of coronavirus in the United States.”

And yet, the “reporter” just parrots the question, like the pathetic liberal “tool” she is.

So sad and so disingenuous.

amostprep 14

I’m not sure how President Trump is able to put up with their crap on a daily basis, to tell you the truth.

President Trump is an amazing man, and I thank God every day that he is willing and able to battle all of these anti-America forces in our own country and around the world.
