Sunday Talks: President Trump Discusses China’s Cover-Up of Wuhan Virus – The Economic Consequences Will Now Increase…

A visibly angered President Trump told Maria Bartiromo he “doesn’t want to talk to China right now” and expresses a more open opinion that we should just decouple from all economic attachment to China.  This is a seismic shift in tone toward Beijing.

All administration policy and economic influence is now targeted to remove Chinese manufacturing from the U.S. supply chain. President Trump and white house officials openly discussing a U.S. effort to decouple from China is a significant shift.

.

President Trump has been creating a dual position for several years; this is very unique because it is the same strategy used by China.  By expressing a panda face, yet concealing the underlying dragon, President Trump’s policy to China is a mirror of themselves.

Historic Chinese geopolitical policy, vis-a-vis their totalitarian control over political sentiment (action) and diplomacy through silence, is evident in the strategic use of the space between carefully chosen words, not just the words themselves.

Each time China takes aggressive action (red dragon) China projects a panda face through silence and non-response to opinion of that action;…. and the action continues. The red dragon has a tendency to say one necessary thing publicly, while manipulating another necessary thing privately.  The Art of War.

President Trump is the first U.S. President to understand how the red dragon hides behind the panda mask.

First he got their attention with tariffs.  Then… On one hand President Trump has engaged in very public and friendly trade negotiations with China (panda approach); yet on the other hand, long before the Wuhan virus, Trump fractured their global supply chains, influenced the movement of industrial goods to alternate nations, and incentivized an exodus of manufacturing (dragon result).

It is specifically because he understands that Panda is a mask that President Trump messages warmth toward the Chinese people, and pours vociferous praise upon Xi Jinping, while simultaneously confronting the geopolitical doctrine of the Xi regime.

In essence Trump has mirrored the behavior of China while confronting their economic duplicity.

There is no doubt in my mind that President Trump has a very well thought out long-term strategy regarding China. In the background of his action there has always been a duality in position; in my opinion Trump was always preparing to fully disconnect from China.

As part of the careful withdrawal President Trump used strategic messaging toward the people of china very importantly.  Trump has, very publicly, complimented the friendship he feels toward President Xi Jinping; and praised Chairman Xi for his character, strength and purposeful leadership.

To build upon that projected and strategic message – President Trump seeded the background by appointing Ambassador Terry Branstad, a 30-year personal friend of President Xi Jinping.

To enhance and amplify the message – and broadcast cultural respect – President Trump used Mar-a-Lago as the venue for their first visit, not the White House.  And President Trump’s beautiful granddaughter, Arabella, sweetly serenaded the Chinese First Family twice in Mandarin Chinese song showing the utmost respect for the guests and later for the hosts.

All of this activity mirrors the duplicity of China.  However, from the November 2017 tour of Asia to the January 2020 China phase-1 trade deal, President Trump has been positioning, for an economic decoupling and a complete realignment of global trade and manufacturing.

After years of careful positioning while unwinding the economic dependency; and while warning U.S. multinationals to prepare themselves financially for a significant shift in position toward China; President Trump has now fully triggered the decoupling phase.

COVID-19 is the perfect global justification needed for the financial markets to remain stable and understand what comes next…

White House Manufacturing Policy Advisor Peter Navarro and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer will be the two primary enforcement officials.

BLOOMBERG –  Five months and a global pandemic later, Lighthizer isn’t using words like integrated anymore about China. In an opinion piece in the New York Times late Monday, he casts new doubt about whether such economic symbiosis is actually the end the Trump administration is now seeking.

In the article, China isn’’t his only villain. The USTR likened the American capitalists who sought cheaper ways of production in places like China, Vietnam and Indonesia to a mass migration of rodents. Over the past few decades, those who weren’t egged on by Wall Street analysts and management consultants were “simply swept up by the herd mentality of their peers” — all to benefit shareholders rather than workers, he said.

“The era of reflexive offshoring is over, and with it the old overzealous emphasis on efficiency and the concomitant lack of concern for the jobs that were lost,” Lighthizer wrote. “After we have defeated this disease and reopened our economy, we cannot forget the hard lessons learned from this misguided experiment.”

What Lighthizer says matters, of course, because he’s the top trade policy voice in a Trump administration where some officials want to leverage the outbreak to go harder on China.

But perhaps even more important is the timing of Lighthizer’s pronouncement. His boss is unhappy with China for the damage the coronavirus is causing to the U.S. economy. (read more)

They and their arm of the media will simply blame Trump’s loss on the people not liking his response to the pandemic. Forget the virus it is the voter fraud that is urgent need of being addressed as it is the democrats most powerful weapon.

But I like to believe that they are way outnumbered by Americans who love this country–or at least want job, and by Americans who will somewhat be cured of their Trump-derangement syndrome, voting for him anyway. Let’s just hope they get off their a@#$%, register to vote, and actually vote on election day. Osama won in 2012 (thanks again McCain! Romney!) because of too many apathetic, lazy Americans.

      These politicians needs public exposure – the kind that even disinterested citizens will see. COVID ought to rile up a ton of anger and resolve to decouple from China and anyone who enabled and covered up for them. However, not sure how we root out the complicit ones from the GOP when Mitch is married to China.

      Getting us away from dependency on China might well be POTUS’ greatest accomplishment because to do so he first had to revitalize US manufacturing which he enabled with tax cuts and tariffs. A long range well throught out plan is unfolding.

          If you cut a nylon stocking and put it OVER your mask its even better

          How can I make a mask that is as good as a surgical mask or an N-95 mask?
          Making a Homemade Mask as Effective as Surgical and N-95 Mask — Cloth Masks, Scissors and Fabric
          Answer:
          If made with the right household materials, you can create a mask that may be as effective as a medical mask or even an N-95 respirator, according to two preliminary studies.

          The first study, from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, found that many household fabrics can be as effective as the material in surgical masks for blocking droplets the size of the COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) coronavirus. The blocking efficiency of a commercial medical mask was found to be 96.3%, while the blocking efficiency of a used dish cloth (85% polyester and 15% nylon) was slightly better — 97.9%. In addition, most household fabrics were more breathable than the material in a medical mask. The dish cloth, for example, was twice as breathable as the medical mask (Aydin, medRxiv 2020 –preprint). (See the CDC website to learn how to make a cloth face covering.)

          The second study, by researchers at Northeastern University in Boston, found that pulling an 8 to 10-inch tube of nylon (cut from a queen-sized nylon stocking) down over a regular mask and to the top of the neck significantly prevented air leakage around the mask and improved particle filtration efficiency, making the combined masking nearly as effective as an N-95 respirator which, unlike a medical mask, has an electrostatic charge and is specifically designed to prevent air leakage (Mueller, medRxiv 2020 –preprint; Godoy, NPR.org 4/22/20).

        FORGET MINI RALLIES. This is a picture of one of the Isle of White rock festivals in the once proud – now Marxist – UK. I was at the original 1968 festival as a very young man.

        These rallies are in the open air and the people simply stand or sit on the ground. Even with social distancing, it would be way more than possible for President Trump to hold the largest political rallies in history if he simply gets permission from some good farmers to hold a rally on their land.

        I am going to guess that the farmers would not charge the president’s campaign a single penny providing the campaign covered the required insurance and the fees for the police and medical teams.

        The advantages are so way obvious:

        1. It would be a hell of lot cheaper than renting a stadium.

        2. A huge field will hold far more people than any stadium.

        3. Nobody would be left outside as they are with stadiums.

        4. White lines could be drawn on the ground as are drawn on a football field. The lines would be drawn to have people comply with the Marxist democrats’ rules and regulations regarding their idiotic social distancing.

        5. Being outdoors it will be entirely possible to have a fireworks display. Rocket bursts could spell out “MAGA” for the crowds.

        6. Approved vendors could sell hotdogs, beer and soda, etc.

        7. Marquee tents could be erected for vendors of Trump gear and food as well as for shelter, in case of bad weather. The price of hiring a large number of marquee tents will be way far lower than renting a stadium. Covered shelters would protect the media and their expensive video equipment. CNN and MSNBC could, of course, be put to the side where the rain would come in.

        8, There are many farms in every state and people will drive for many miles to get to them.

        9, Due to the possibility of rainy weather the team could hand out cheap umbrellas with MAGA or TRUMP 2020 on them. ANY specialty supply company can have these made cheaply in high volume at the drop of a hat.

        10, Our president will have a platform to tell everyone in the country the truth behind what the democrats, the globalists and Wall Street bosses have done and are still doing.

        If the Trump campaign staff is watching this, look me up and hire me to make this a reality. I am not joking. Sundance has my name and address here in NE Florida due to my past PayPal donations. Our president does NOT have to lose his rallies.

        MAGA TRUMP 2020.

            Before he was elected, Donald J Trump was never subtle about his disdain for the rotten trade situation with China (among other countries, but China was obviously his most disliked) as well as the dishonest practices they used to steal technology, designs, and take control of every foreign company that located inside China.

            As such, I cannot believe China was not all-in on efforts to interfere in the 2016 election and likely funneled tons of money to the DemonRATs that year. Likewise it is highly likely that China spent $millions on the 2018 midterms.

            My point is that I think the President and his campaign operatives are very aware of China’s engagement in our politics and he and his team are prepared to counter whatever the ChiComs try to pull off with the November election.

    Only 9 million of the 1.4 billion citizens in China belong to the CCP. Only 1 million of them are in leadership positions who gain any financial reward for their compliance. President Trump knows that 1.3 million Chinese are the ones he needs to speak to to cause the CCP significant problems. Changing our supply chain back to America and other friendly countries is what we are about to witness.

          It is very difficult to become a CCP card carrying member. Not like waking up and deciding to be a Republican, Democrat or other in the US. It is a long process, more akin to getting a National Security clearance. Background checks including family members past and present and their class history, ideological purity, correct thinking, proving yourself and so on. It is considered a great honour 🤣 Plus lucrative.

          Most Party members are state employees as it is a Party/State. Only about 2+million members are ostensibly in the .’private’ sector🤣

          Mao2.0 has very efficiently and effectively eliminated his political ‘enemies’ through the anti-corruption campaigns. As for factions, they are always there if only nascent, but that means within the context of orthodox ideological thought that is renewed or revised with every leader, but does not stray into heterodoxy.

          People outside PRC talk about ‘hardliners’ which means they think there are softliners or ‘reformers’. Not relevant. It’s hard for people brought up in freedom with democratic rights and rule of law to grasp this.

          It would take a massive revolt by the 屁民 to change the equation.

      Judy Mikovits is breaking the vaccine narrative. She is shifting the vaccine is bad narrative because of aluminum, mercury, etc adjuvants to the stronger argument that vaccines are dangerous due to contaminated horrific animal retroviruses that live in the fermentation vats where the vaccine is cooked up.

        I wish every anti-vaxxer could travel in time and meet a poor soul stuck in an iron lung, or someone turned into a vegetable as a baby by scarlet fever, or sterilized and turned into a moonscape by smallpox. I could go on and on. Very few people these days born in the USA have any real conception of the dangers infections diseases posed in the days of old. My father was one of seven who survived out of a total of twelve. That wasn’t that damn uncommon in his day. Too many people think our relatively infectious-disease free existence is not just normal but the way it has always been. That therefore any measure to prevent these diseases from reoccurring, if they have even the most miniscule risk, are too dangerous to implement.

        Vaccines have saved uncountable lives. However vaccines are also like antibiotics. They should be used when necessary. But I do agree that abuse and overuse of vaccines and antibiotics pose their own dangers. injecting dozens of vaccines into infants against minor ailments may be too much. It’s like the epidemic of pill-taking in the elderly, too many pills are taken to counteract the effects of another pill and so on. An aspirin can make you feel better doesn’t mean a hundred aspirins will make you feel a hundred times better.

          There are probably a lot of us who can remember suffering from the dreaded “hard measles” as a kid TarsTarkas.

          I remember the very high fevers and the strange “dreams” I had that my Mom tells me now were hallucinations from the extremely high fever I had that scared the daylights out of her.

          I can remember the pain and screaming a lot, I remember my littler brothers being so sick and my Mom and grandma and aunts wrapping them in cold damp sheets that they put in the fridge to cool them down and then setting a fan by them to cool them down further,

          A lot of pain and crying and screaming and hallucinations from the high fevers, this is what we lived with when the kids got the hard measles.

          The mumps left my cousin deaf in one ear and blind in one eye.

          When by sons were born I made sure that they had the MMR vaccine, I did not want them to go through what we did, to me this was an amazing and wonderful gift.

          As you point out maybe not all things are good for all people but trying to say that certain things are all bad for everyone is wrong too.

          This x 1000.

          I’m in my late sixties, so while I was vaccinated for smallpox and polio, my siblings and I suffered all the usual childhood diseases. My own children (born from 1977 to 1987) only had chicken pox.

          My mother died at the age of 25 from polio, leaving behind a young husband and two small children. All my father, a doctor, had to protect us then was gamma globulin shots. His younger cousin spent time in an iron lung and wore braces the rest of his life, as has one of my best friends from high school.

          Most anti-vaxxers today, who were probably immunized by their parents, have no conception of the anxiety caused by epidemics of the past. Or they may now, if you compare COVID-19 to polio.

          Another point: anti-vaxxers in the US like to pride themselves on how healthy their non-immunized children are. They never admit that their own are benefiting from the herd immunity caused from the vast majority of other parents vaccinating their children.

          Your points on overuse are well-taken. But the wholesale rejection of vaccines would lead to consequences I don’t think they foresee, as you expalined.

    Much of this is theater. Tariffs told the CCP their profitable Ponzi scheme was over. Their belt and road was over. Their dream of China dominating the world was over. PDJT knew there would be a counter attack targeting re-election via the economy. From the CCP perspective it was time to use all those expensive traitors in elected office. Wonder why the Dems went off the rails in the last eight months? I believe it is because their CCP paymasters told them “now or never”. The very low fatality rate of the virus (don’t believe in coincidences) was to preclude a US counter-response while giving their operatives a chance to tank the US economy. The CCP dream is dying, the progressives’ dream is dying. Victory belongs to those who hold out the longest. This is Midway for Main Street.

We will see how it’s rolled out over the following weeks and months. This is WAR. There is no mistaking it. China has been at war with us for decades. We are finally waking up to it.

      We Deplorables have been under attack on many fronts for a long time. We have been under attack by enemies both foreign and domestic. Our President brought this war to a head. He exposed what was happening to us and how we were being lied to and attacked on so many fronts (Fed, state and local politicians, media, hollywood, academia, world leaders, community organizers, community activists, etc). He got us to recognize that first, yes we are under attack, second, we are a great country and third, the decline of our country is not inevitable.

      As a great communicator, our President reminded us that we are one Nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all. A country and an ideal certainly worth fighting for.

    Scott said the building was a warehouse for SmokeTokes, which he described as a maker of “butane honey oil.” Butane is an odorless gas that easily ignites, and it’s used in the process to extract the high-inducing chemical THC from cannabis to create a highly potent concentrate also known as hash oil. The oil is used in vape pens, edibles, waxes and other products.

    On its website, SmokeTokes advertises a variety of products including “puff bars,” pipes, “dab” tools, vaporizers, “torches and butane,” and cartridges. The company says it is “an international distributor and wholesaler of smoking and vaping products, and related accessories.” Founded in 2009, it offers “discounts to loyal customers, fast shipping, a huge catalog of products and customer service that is untouched.”
