Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin lamented the media’s refusal to discuss aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic, including Dr. Anthony Fauci’s role in it, in an interview with Megyn Kelly.
“This body of research, this gain-of-function research, the whole world of virologists … it’s very insular,” Rogin said in an interview on Kelly’s podcast. “I often talk to scientists who say the same thing, who say, ‘Listen, we really want to speak out about this, but we can’t do it.’ Why can’t we do it? Well, We get all of our funding from NIH, or NIAID, which is run by Dr. Fauci. … And so we can’t say anything like ‘Oh, gain-of-function research might be dangerous, or it might have come from a lab, because we’re going to lose our careers, we’re going to lose our funding, we’re not going to be able to do our work.’”
With blissful abandon, President Joe Biden is proposing a massive expansion in electric cars, funding 500,000 charging stations for their batteries around the country.
There’s only one problem: China controls 80 percent of the globe’s essential raw materials—called rare earth minerals—necessary for the manufacture of car batteries.
Meanwhile, the United States has to import 80 percent of these minerals it uses, mainly from Beijing
So, in switching from gas-powered cars to electric cars, we would be switching from energy self-sufficiency to total dependence on China.
Instead of Arab sheiks controlling our destiny, Chinese communist apparatchiks would.
The U.S. once was the dominant global supplier of rare earth minerals until the environmental movement closed down the mines in California and Nevada that produced much of the world’s supply.
A new system has been created for citizens to report to the government anyone who “denies the excellence of the Chinese advanced socialist culture”.
Reminiscent of George Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984 , in this new mechanism of state surveillance and control, normal Chinese citizens can also inform the government of anyone who is “spreading an ‘incorrect’ interpretation of history”.
The Express reports: A retired US diplomat David Cowhig has translated a recent Chinese Communist Party initiative to encourage citizens to use a “report zone for harmful information involving historical nihilism”.
China-based journalist Michael Standaert today tweeted that “a new hotline has been launched for those interested in reporting their friends, neighbours, and colleagues for making ‘incorrect remarks about history’.”
The news was also reported by BBC China correspondent Stephen McDonell, whom today tweeted: “A new service enabling people in China to report others for spreading an ‘incorrect’ interpretation of history.”
The BBC journalist added: “Who to report?
“Well those who ‘distort the history of the Chinese Communist Party’ or ‘the history of socialist development’.”
In addition to this, the BBC journalist stated that Chinese citizens can also report “those who have defamed the Communist Party’s ‘heroes and martyrs”.
Mr McDonell quotes from a source released by the “Reporting Center of the Cyberspace Administration of China”.
Another offence that should be reported was anyone who attacked the Chinese Communist Party’s “guiding ideology”.
In 2018 President Xi Jinping of China announced the abolition of presidential term limits, creating the situation where he could hold power until death.
Turk, also an alum of the Obama administration, was the Deputy Executive Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2018 at the time of the conference. The 2018 China International Energy Industry Expo (CIEI) was hosted in the city of Taiyuan and was “established with the approval of the State Council” and “jointly sponsored” by two Chinese government entities: the Ministry of Commerce and the Shanxi provincial government.
The event boasts it is”the only state-level, international and professional exhibition in the energy industry field approved by the State Council.” “With the instruction spirit of “striving to be the vanguard of national energy revolution”, ” in accordance with the new concept of innovation, coordination, green, open and sharing actively, the fair aims to become the a new platform for international energy exchange and cooperation,” a summary adds.
A previously unreported article from China Global Television Network (CGTN) reveals that Turk “delivered a speech on the future trends of global energy supply and consumption.”“He says China’s switch to a new economic model and a cleaner energy mix is driving global trends,” the summary continues.
CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta said an interview with former CDC Director Robert Redfield convinced him that the Wuhan lab-leak theory was worthy of consideration.
Gupta told Mediaite’s Aidan McLaughlin that Redfield, as an experienced virologist who had access to raw data in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic, had a unique and possibly more informed perspective than many of those studying the origins of the novel coronavirus.
Chinese officials have continued to insist that the virus did not originate in a lab, and a number of media outlets in the United States have also attempted to discredit that theory.
Dr. Ian Lipkin was quoted by outlets including CBS and USA Today as a means by which to “debunk” Dr. Redfield’s explosive claim linking the virus to a Chinese lab.
“We should be moving away from finger-pointing,” Lipkin told CBS after adding there is “no evidence to suggest that it was created in a lab.”
While the corporate media is keen to promote Lipkin’s claims – indistinguishable from the Chinese Communist Party’s COVID-19 narrative – they failed to report his decades of ties to the Chinese Communist Party.
The news comes as the New York Times breathlessly backs big corporates opposed to Georgia’s new voting laws. The New York Times, however, seems less concerned with employing genocidal Chinese Communist Party apparatchiks.
Jonah Kessel – the current Director of Cinematography at The New York Times – served as the Creative Director of China Daily from July 2009 to November 2010 before departing work as a China-based photographer and cinematographer whose clients included People’s Republic of China Ministry of Information.
Kessel describes himself as “redesigning” China Daily – a gig he was “psyched” for and boasted about how publications such as The Economist hyped his redesign.
One model of mask distributed to Quebec schools and daycares may be dangerous for the lungs as they could contain a potentially toxic material, according to a directive sent out by the provincial government on Friday.
Radio-Canada has obtained documents showing Health Canada warned of the potential for “early pulmonary toxicity” from the SNN200642 masks which are made in China and sold and distributed by Métallifer, a Quebec-based manufacturer.
“If you have this type of mask in stock, we ask that you stop distributing them and keep them in a safe place now,” the provincial government says in the directive that was sent by three ministries: education, families and higher education.
Some daycare educators had been suspicious of these grey and blue masks for a while because they felt like they were swallowing cat hair while wearing them, Radio-Canada has learned.
Health Canada conducted a preliminary risk assessment which revealed a potential for early lung damage associated with inhalation of microscopic graphene particles. Graphene is a strong, very thin material that is used in fabrication, but it can be harmful to lungs when inhaled and can cause long-term health problems.
The group’s most recent financial disclosures reveal over $17,000,000 invested in a Chinese Communist Party-linked investment fund and over $1,200,000 invested in Russia Partners – which boasts of its close connections to “government leaders in Russia.”
The unearthed financial ties come as the group continues to peddle conspiracy theories about Russian influence in the 2016 election and purports to “protect press freedom” while investing in countries whose journalism sectors are consistently ranked among the least free.
