    I was just thinking about how funny it would be someday if a large country, say a nation with over 300 million people, decided to walk around with face masks everywhere they went, suspended peoples liberties, shut their schools down and tried to ruin their economy over a virus that is killing as many people as a bad flu season would. Now that would be weird! 😱

    Maybe I’ll write a fiction novel about that someday. 😒

      Love it! I keep my own spreadsheets based on THEIR numbers. Based on a three week maximum from infection to resolution, there are no hot spots, there is no crisis, there is no reason for the draconian measures. We all know that.

      The dashboards are designed for maximum panic effect. Take Florida, they quote 542,942 know cases of infection. What they don’t tell you is that number includes ALL infections SINCE FEBRUARY!

      Taking their numbers and using a 3 week case resolution rule, there are only 182,669 known active cases in Florida. With a 16-20 Million population in Florida, the rate of infection is (drum roll) 0.91 percent (0.0091). Rounded to 1% that’s 9 people out of 1,000! And Florida is a HOT SPOT?

        I think a small part of it is that the demonrat controlled states like NY and NJ, who messed up terribly in their WhuFlu response, are using their NY media based stenographers to create a new “hotspot” region hysteria in order to shift the focus away from their miserable faliure. And alot of LIV’s seem to be buying it.

        A serious citizenry would not tolerate this madness.

    Just watched Sidney Powell on Lou Dobbs. This whole dog and pony show today (I watched the whole thing) was beyond the pale. In Federal Court, if the prosecutor (Federal Govt.) says “we are done, we are out of here, no prosecution”, who in hell is left to prosecute? NO ONE!

    There is no way they can win this at the Federal level. There is no more prosecution! But wait, as with POTUS, I expect that the locals, State and Commonwealth, will file their own charges against Flynn. I will take that bet. It’s never over with these people and POTUS’s persecution has proved that in spades.

              Yes, generally speaking unless you are on the “list”—suspected of NSL violations, the press, BNO pp holders may not be able to return if they seek asylum. The law is also exterritorial , so they ban you no matter if you are HK, or foreign. They issued an arrest order for several US and UK Citizens who were also HK born with permanent right of abode.
              It is so arbitrary and quixotic hard to understand ( I doubt HKG even understands it with out running to the CCP affairs office for approval . “It means what we say it means”.

                Have at it, if you do not value the lives of yourself or your family. Have a great time!

                Please, if you vote democrat, travel the world! See the sites. Go to Venezuela, Cuba, China and Hong Kong. There is no danger! Antifa and BLM and the democrat party will save you, if you end up in jail for reasons that you don’t understand.

    When Bernie was surging, the party elders landed on Joe because he was the “least Left”. They knew if Bernie prevailed that a lot of moderate dems would abandon them and they would lose the down ballot massively, hence Bye Bye House and certainly Senate. So they settled on Joe and Clyburn pulled his ass across the finish line in South Carolina. Now they ended up with a dementia case with latent racist issues emerging…..classic train wreck

    TikTok Tracked User Data Using Tactic Banned by Google
    The tactic, which experts in mobile-phone security said was concealed through an unusual added layer of encryption, appears to have violated Google policies

    Excerpt:

    “ TikTok skirted a privacy safeguard in Google’s Android operating system to collect unique identifiers from millions of mobile devices, data that allows the app to track users online without allowing them to opt out, a Wall Street Journal analysis has found.

    The tactic, which experts in mobile-phone security said was concealed through an unusual added layer of encryption, appears to have violated Google policies limiting how apps track people and wasn’t disclosed to TikTok users. TikTok ended the practice in November, the Journal’s testing showed.

    The findings come at a time when TikTok’s Beijing-based parent company, ByteDance Ltd., is under pressure from the White House over concerns that data collected by the app could be used to help the Chinese government track U.S. government employees or contractors. TikTok has said it doesn’t share data with the Chinese government and wouldn’t do so if asked.“

      But that doesn’t mean Google wouldn’t share with the CCP gubmint (they will).

      Isn’t it wonderful to live in a country which allows us to express our opinions on a website such as CTH?

      Sometimes, however, “our” opinions are different.
      This is one of those times.

      I may be the only one, but i value posts by A2 and a unique perspective on China and specifically on Hong Kong. These have been critical issues in President Trump’s foreign policy agenda.

      Perhaps you, yourself, could “hold a leg” while many Treepers around the world continue to skin.

      Umm, bbMike,

      As far as I see it the hunger for liberty in the face of tyranny is a universal human trait (or you could say an inalienable right endowed by our Creator)

      Poland, Hungary, Chechoslovskia and Berlin in the Cold War vs USSR,

      Hong Kong and Taiwan today,

      Who knows tomorrow…

      My point is the birth and continued greatness of this Nation is thoroughly connected to our own freedoms and how we support those striving for freedom today. That is one major part of President Trump’s vision of a Great America. He illustrates this amazingly well yet the story of American Greatness is far more than any one President.

      “I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. And to the Republic for which it stands. One Nation, under God. Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for ALL.”

    Call me crazy, but it appears that China is currently executing a USSR style expansion of its communist controlled territories. It seems that we are watching in real time and doing nothing, for the second time in history.

    About 75 years ago the same thing happened. Curiously, about a generation ago. Just enough time that those that experienced the horror first hand have all died or have become too old to fight back.

    The same families are behind this. The same families that caused WWI & WWII. The same families that want endless small wars all across the globe.

    This is our time. Let us learn from history and prevent the banking families from foisting this BS on the good people of the world again.

    Time to eliminate the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Payseurs, etc. and all their ilk. We cannot allow the banking families return the world to a new feudalism, in other words, “the new world order”.

    Kasich: Supporting Trump Is Not Consistent with Biblical Teachings — Biden ‘Is a Man of Deep Faith’

    “…Anchor Erin Burnett asked, “So Southern Baptist Minister, he is ordained, Mike Huckabee said the other day in part, ‘I don’t know if anybody, people of faith who think Joe Biden is a great choice. I tell you they’re not going to go with Biden. That’s not an option.’ What do you say?

    Kasich said, “Well, I’m clued in to a lot of people of faith, a number of them, who are very happy that I’m making this decision. I can give you names. I don’t want to say it on the air, but I can give you names of them if we have to come back and do that. And the fact is, you know, the faith is a matter of your personal relationship. And so I don’t know why that’s been said about Joe. I think he is a man of faith. I don’t sit down and talk about all of his religion with him, but I’m comfortable with him. I, like I say, I consider myself to be a man of faith. A flawed man of faith for sure, but aren’t we all? So I don’t think anybody can speak for the entire faith community and try to say that this person is good and that person isn’t. A lot of people scratch their heads about why some of these very conservative Evangelicals support Trump. It seems not to be consistent with the things that they believe in as promoted in the Old and New Testament.”…”
