Post Date: 2020-03-15 10:37:28 by IbJensen
His nickname in China was The Cannon, and Ren Zhiqiangs latest commentary was among his most explosive yet. Mr. Ren, an outspoken property tycoon in Beijing, wrote in a scathing essay that Chinas leader, Xi Jinping, was a power-hungry clown. He said the ruling Communist Partys strict limits on free speech had exacerbated the coronavirus epidemic. Now Mr. Ren, one of the most prominent critics of Mr. Xi in mainland China, is missing, his friends said on Saturday. His disappearance comes amid a far-reaching campaign by the party to quash criticism of its slow, secretive initial response to the epidemic, which has killed over 3,100 people in ...

A biosafety level 4 laboratory that studies the worlds most dangerous pathogens is based in Wuhan, the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in China, leading some to claim that the virus could have accidentally escaped the lab.

The climate change hoax has collapsed. A devastating series of research papers has just been published, revealing that human activity can account for no more than a .01°C rise in global temperatures, meaning that all the human activity targeted by radical climate change alarmists combustion engines, airplane flights, diesel tractors has virtually no measurable impact on the temperature of the planet. Finnish scientists spearheaded the research, releasing a paper entitled, No Experimental Evidence for the Significant Anthropogenic Climate Change. The paper explains that IPCC analysis of global temperatures suffers from a glaring error namely, failure to ...

Stop saying Biden is the 'most electable'. Trump will run rings round him
Post Date: 2020-01-05 14:13:57 by Tooconservative
Supporters of Joe Biden are unlikely to be persuaded by most of the common criticisms. They know he can be rambling and unintelligible. They know his record is unimpressive and that he doesnt really have policy proposals. None of this matters, though, because to them he has the most important quality of all: he can beat Donald Trump. Nothing you can say about the former vice-presidents record, platform or mental state matters next to the argument that he is the best hope Democrats have of getting Trump out of office. Theres just one problem: its a myth. It is a myth just as it was a myth that Hillary Clinton was a good candidate against Trump. Biden is ...

Trump’s Point of No Return

When I wrote that the coup against President Trump had morphed into a Civil War, I wasnt kidding. The sham impeachment created the perfect environment for the Democrats and Republicans to get something definitive from him by playing the House and the Senate off each other. With the Senate Neocon Occupied Territory the escalation of belligerence since Speaker Nancy Pelosi pushed through the impeachment vote has been serious. First, there was the rider to the NDAA which upped the sanctions on everyone willing to work on Nordstream 2. Then Lindsey Graham pushed the frankly insane DASKA bill through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Pelosi forced her impeachment vote ...

Late Thursday night, without any congressional authorization, president Donald Trump ordered and carried out the assassination of one of the most powerful people in Iran, knowingly setting off what could amount to a new world war.

Touch-screen controls may have doomed USS McCain in tanker collision; now their makers will get paid to install upgrades
Post Date: 2019-12-22 03:25:08 by Deckard
By Nebojsa Malic, senior writer at RT A new report into the 2017 collision that killed 10 sailors and nearly sank a US warship argues the badly designed touch-screen control system was at fault. So its creators will now get paid to fix it, obviously. The guided missile destroyer USS John S. McCain sailed into the path of the tanker MC Alnic just east of the Singapore Strait in the early hours of August 21, 2017. The 30,000-ton vessel rammed the McCain, collapsing a bulkhead where 12 sailors were asleep. Only two made it out alive. It was the Navys worst accident at sea in decades.The Pentagon launched a probe, and forced several admirals into retirement. Also ...
Lame Excuses: WaPo’s Afghanistan Papers
