Why would the world turn sour on China? It is a lovable communist country with a quest for world domination, who harvests organs and has concentration camps, but should that fact colour our judgment, I ask, about someone buying so much of our iron ore to make into weapons?

Aussie Politicians Fight Three Wars at Once - Climate, Covid and China
Australian politicians are trying to maintain their never-ending Climate War on carbon fuels while waging a Lockdown War on the elusive Covid virus and also provoking a Trade War with China, our biggest trading partner. We cannot afford three hopeless and costly wars at once. One would be too many. The political war on carbon fuels has damaged the environment with forests of "green" power poles, flats of ground-sterilising solar panels, hills of
bird-slicing wind turbines plus spider-webs of new power lines and roads. This mess produces unreliable expensive electricity, sterilizes land, and wastes water to keep solar panels clean. And imagine the debris when a cyclone sails through a "farm" of panels or a "forest" of turbines. This expensive and unreliable power, plus green taxes and regulations, has destroyed much of Australia's manufacturing, processing and refining industries - all for ZERO climate benefits.
I do not see all of this going too far; once the sacred trade dollar is threatened, particularly education and primary production, Australia will back down. After all, economics always triumphs over principles, as money is the bottom line:
“The risk of escalating action by China to restrict our farmers’ ¬access to its massive market would pose a “substantial” threat to Australian agricultural exports worth close to $17bn. Fears of a one-sided “trade war” emerging between Australia and the communist country have heightened this week, after China suspended meat imports from four Australian abattoirs and threatened to slap tariffs of more than 70 per cent on barley as soon as this weekend. Agricultural, forestry and fishery exporters are particularly reliant on the Chinese market. The sector sent just under a third of all its exports, by value, to China last year — $16.8bn of the $53bn total international sales for the year, ¬according to Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade data. In comparison, manufactured goods exporters sell less overseas and are also relatively less reliant on our largest trading partner. There were $6.1bn worth of manufactured goods exports to China last year, accounting for only a tenth of that sector’s total. CBA agricultural commodity strategist Tobin Gorey said the risk of rising Chinese protectionism was “a substantial threat” to the sector and that China was “a big market for beef”. Australian producers sold $2.7bn worth of beef to China last year, or a quarter of the $10.8bn total export sales for the year, ¬according to the DFAT data. Barley sales to China were worth a much smaller $600m last year, but that accounted for a much larger share of the $1bn in total barley overseas sales, showing how vulnerable the industry is to adverse Chinese trade rulings.”
I must admit, that even though these are confusing, if not dangerous times, with the New World Order closing in, like one of those rooms with walls lined with spikes that come in on you, it is still … delightful! Much like a dessert, that is so sweet and fatty, and tasty, that you eat it and die happy. Take this one, for example, dear to my heart because it challenges, in a foundational way, the globalist ideology of the Australian universities:
“Chinese students and tourists could stop coming to Australia if Prime Minister Scott Morrison pursues an inquiry into the beginnings of coronavirus, a leading Chinese official has warned. The stern warning was issued by Chinese Ambassador Cheng Jingye who labelled a push for an independent COVID-19 inquiry by the federal government as 'dangerous'. Mr Jingye warned that if Australia continued to be 'unfriendly' to China, its people - in particular its students and tourists - may have second thoughts about travelling. While admitting that his country had not handled the COVID-19 outbreak 'perfectly' he said the reaction by nations like Australia had left the Chinese people 'dismayed'. 'I think in the long term... if the mood is going from bad to worse, people would think 'Why should we go to such a country that is not so friendly to China? The tourists may have second thoughts,' he told The Australian Financial Review. 'The parents of the students would also think whether this place which they found is not so friendly, even hostile, whether this is the best place to send our kids.' Education is Australia's third biggest export and is worth more than $30 billion to the economy every year. The ambassador refused to comment on whether key exports such as iron ore, coal and gas would be affected by perceived anti-China sentiment.”
It is hard to believe, but China which is supposed to be making everything in the Newer New World Order, is hoarding medical supplies. Whatever for, since didn’t the commo party tell us that everything is peachy cream with that old crazy virus?
“US officials believe China deliberately downplayed the country’s coronavirus outbreak in order to stock up on medical supplies needed to fight the illness, intelligence documents show. In early January, Chinese leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic from the world, according to a four-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report obtained by the Associated Press. The analysis also says that for much of January China delayed reporting the coronavirus “was a contagion” to the World Health Organization so they could import personal protective equipment. The report, which is dated May 1 and marked “for official use only,” said China increased imports and decreased exports of medical supplies while downplaying the growing crisis. The report’s conclusions were based on the 95 percent probability that China’s changes in imports and export behavior were not within normal range. There is no public evidence to suggest that China deliberately withheld information for the purpose of hoarding the world’s medical supplies.”
Unlike the carefully researched and ever-balanced coverage of our science-minded Brian Simpson, I am the boots and all Alex Jones type of raving conspiracy type. Well, we need balance. I believe that many of the shootings in the US, and those that we are permitted to talk about, without punishment, were false flags. And, the corona virus, well that is just a pussy cat. And, if it is not, then it is still a conspiracy, involving the pre-established harmony of balancing every government in the world, including Iran and Saudi Arabia, somehow getting them to call time out from the usual fighting, and all health care workers … look this guy has done my work for me, in stating the incredible logical implications of my world view, better than me:
“Oil rich countries wanted a barrel of oil to cost less than a New York pizza. The wealthy wanted trillions of dollars to be wiped out in financial markets. The Prime Minister of the United Kingdom faked his brush with death.
Politicians have conspired to destroy the middle class for they can run for reelection on a platform of mass death, economic collapse and the loss of individual freedom. The state governors who imposed lockdowns to create a permanent police state are already reopening their states for business less than a month later. Life is returning to normal in Wuhan where even the Chinese Communist Party isn’t enforcing a permanent lockdown. Globalists secretly wanted the airlines to go bankrupt for they could be grounded for a change. They wanted international travel to grind to a halt. They wanted the European Union and Canada to close their borders. They wanted to shutdown immigration in the United States. Globalists secretly wanted to get rid of our consumer society and to discredit globalization after decades of neoliberalism. The Deep State secretly wanted over a million Americans to be infected by the coronavirus for American leadership could be discredited on the global stage as the president of the United States recommends injecting disinfectant to the treat the virus in front of the world. China which was making a fortune off globalization wanted to bring its decades long streak of economic growth to a halt in the middle of a public relations catastrophe. SARS-CoV-2 is a bioweapon which escaped from the lab in Wuhan but fortunately it is just the flu so it really isn’t that bad. The WHO is conspiring with Bill Gates by rejecting immunity passports. The WHO is covering up the fact that the virus is “just the flu.” It failed to notify the world early enough that we were due for a normal flu season. The real threat isn’t the virus that has killed 59,000 Americans. It is a nonexistent vaccine for it. 5G is causing all the deaths from the coronavirus which is why South Korea has been devastated by 246 coronavirus deaths.”
President Trump has been hammering the Swedish model, but even the World Health Organization has praise for it, since Sweden, while having a moderate number of cases, suffered little economic damage as did the rest of the West:
“President Trump on Thursday took aim at Sweden’s decision to not order lockdowns in response to the coronavirus epidemic, claiming the U.S. made “the correct decision” after the World Health Organization praised the Scandinavian country’s more moderate approach. “Despite reports to the contrary, Sweden is paying heavily for its decision not to lockdown. As of today, 2462 people have died there, a much higher number than the neighboring countries of Norway (207), Finland (206) or Denmark (443),” he tweeted. “The United States made the correct decision!” Sweden has implemented a number of social distancing measures but has, by and large, kept its economy and daily life going, leaving schools, businesses and leisure activities open while closing sporting events and large gatherings. Despite warnings from experts that the strategy could have deadly consequences, the country's approach has become a talisman for lockdown skeptics who say the strategy was misguided and unnecessarily harmful. A New York Times story on Sweden’s approach this week, filled with pictures of Swedes sipping wine in cafes and chatting (maskless) at restaurants, noted that the country’s death rate per 100,000 is about the same as Ireland’s, and better than Britain’s or France’s. While locked down Americans and Europeans are being warned that severe restrictions could last for much longer than previously promised amid fears of a "second wave," Sweden’s ambassador to the U.S. said last week that “herd immunity” -- by which most of the population is immune from infection -- could be achieved in Stockholm by mid-May. Those, like Trump, who criticize the approach, highlight that the number of deaths from the virus is high compared with other Scandinavian countries. But lockdown skeptics note that the original goal of the strategy was not to stop people getting infected altogether but to slow the spread of those infections in a way that doesn’t immediately overwhelm a country’s health care system. Sweden’s health care system has so far not been overwhelmed.
Thinkers are already speculating about the effects of the second rounds of Covid-19, while of course, the Dissent Right is still divided as ever. There are even debates about the method of transmission, with some thinking it could be highly airborne, travelling on air pollution particles:
“Now, a team of researchers who have been studying air pollution levels in Italy's Bergamo Province have found more evidence that the virus can travel on air pollution particles, the Guardian reports, which might offer some insight into the issue. Leonardo Setti at the University of Bologna in Italy, who led the work, said it was important to investigate if the virus could be carried more widely by air pollution. am a scientist and I am worried when I don’t know,” he said. “If we know, we can find a solution. But if we don’t know, we can only suffer the consequences." To be sure, while the scientists found evidence of viral genetic material on air particles, the research offers no insight on whether these particles can actually transmit the virus in a way that would allow it to infect other humans. Here's more from the Guardian: The Italian scientists used standard techniques to collect outdoor air pollution samples at one urban and one industrial site in Bergamo province and identified a gene highly specific to Covid-19 in multiple samples. The detection was confirmed by blind testing at an independent laboratory. […]
While Trump back in 2016, gave speeches against globalism, written by Steve Bannon, who was then quickly disposed of after the election, as Trump moved his son-in-law into the main ruling position, he seems to have learnt a few things about globalism and national strategic control, mainly of supply chains. It does not make much sense to let bitter rival, commo China, make your vitals:
“President Donald Trump said Saturday the biggest lesson of the coronavirus crisis was that the United States should not rely on China for their supply chains. “We’ve learned a lot about supply chains,” Trump said. “We’ve learned that it’s nice to make things in the U.S., I’ve been saying that for a long time.” The president discussed the issue during the White House press briefing, recalling he ran for president on the dangers of America’s dependence on bad trade deals and foreign countries while gutting our country’s industries. “If one thing comes out of this more than anything else is that we should make product in the United States,” he said. Trump noted that he also promised as a candidate to be tough on China and successfully pressured them with tariffs to make an important trade deal. “With China, we made the deal, and it became friendly, but then this happened,” he recalled.”
This is hot from our feathered friends at the UN today:
“Noting that the global spread of COVID-19 this year has sparked “the worst humanitarian crisis since World War Two”, Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP) David Beasley pointed to deepening crises, more frequent natural disasters and changing weather patterns, saying “we’re already facing a perfect storm”. As millions of civilians in conflict-scarred nations teeter on the brink of starvation, he said, “famine is a very real and dangerous possibility”. Mr. Beasley painted a grim picture of 135 million people facing crisis levels of hunger or worse, coupled with an additional 130 million on the edge of starvation prompted by Coronavirus, noting that WFP currently offers a lifeline to nearly 100 million people – up from about 80 million just a few years ago. “If we can’t reach these people with the life-saving assistance they need, our analysis shows that 300,000 people could starve to death every single day over a three-month period”, he upheld. “This does not include the increase of starvation due to COVID-19”.
What a sucker, deracinated cucked philosophy neo-liberalist globalism is, and the coronavirus pandemic has certainly shown that. Thus, mad globalist, and false nationalist, Trump, knew that there was a problem, when China began locking itself down, but he still did not close the border, being a mad globalist pro-immigration fanatic, just like the Democrats, - witness his kowtowing speech to India. It would have been possible to avoid the economic pain that is coming if cuck Trump could have had some nationalistic manhood and did what the Chinese did. Instead, he still kept open borders with China, until it was too late, consequently economically dooming the US economy, and the rest of the West, including Australia:
“Around half a million Chinese people, some of them infected with coronavirus, entered America from December to February at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, new figures show. The numbers, which were obtained from Commerce Department and U.S. Customs and Border Protection records, were compiled by ABC News. They show that in the three-month period when coronavirus was raging across China, 759,493 people entered the U.S. from China. This number included 228,000 Americans who were returning home, meaning that roughly half a million were Chinese citizens or people living in China who were visiting the U.S. for tourism, business or to see family. This number of people were pouring into the U.S. while the World Health Organization was simultaneously insisting that no country should enforce any kind of border controls to stop the spread of the virus. President Donald Trump restricted travel from China from February 2nd onwards, but that was too little too late because the outbreak (which was subsequently covered up by China for two months) had started in Wuhan in November, according to Johns Hopkins University. According to Dr. Vinayak Kumar, an internal medicine resident at the Mayo Clinic, out of the total figure arriving in the U.S. from China, “a large number might have been infected at the time of travel.” The numbers illustrate “how globalized our world has become,” he added. However, infectious disease specialist Dr. Simone Wildes suggested that the virus outbreak was the price of globalization and that Americans would just have to get used to it. “It shows that globalization is here, and we have to be better prepared to deal with the impact this will have on all our lives in so many ways,” he said. The data also shows that “From December, January and February on travelers entering the U.S. from eight of the hardest-hit countries: 343,402 arrived from Italy, 418,848 from Spain and about 1.9 million more came from Britain.”
Greg Sheridan, who by his photo appears to have eternal youth, has lost faith in globalisation, previously losing faith in multiculturalism. Well, the disease critique of globalism was made by various writers over the past 20 years or more (Garrett Hardin etc., The Social Contract guys etc.), so the arguments have been out there for a long time, and until now, ignored by the chattering class. Anyway, welcome aboard Greg, to the good ship, nationalism. I hope you don’t mind my smell, I don’t wash too much being dirt poor from globalisation, but we are now all in the life boats together, so let’s cuddle up against the coming winter chill of converging catastrophes, detailed by the late Guillaume Faye (1949-2019) in his book, Convergence of Catastrophes:
“The thesis of this book is a terrifying one: our present global civilisation will collapse within twenty years, and it is too late to stop it. We shall regress to a 'New Middle Ages' akin to the fall of the Roman Empire, only much more destructive. For the first time in the whole of human history, certain 'dramatic lines', giant crises and catastrophes of immense proportions - already tangible - have emerged. They are converging and will most likely reach their zenith by 2020. Up to that time, as we have already been witnessing, their effects will continue to get worse, until a breaking point is reached. Guillaume Faye rigorously examines these escalating crises one by one: environmental damage and climate change; the breakdown of a speculative and debt-ridden globalist economy; the return of global epidemics; the depletion of fossil fuels and of agricultural and fishing resources; the rise of mass immigration, terrorism and nuclear proliferation; the worsening of the rupture between Islam and the West; and the dramatic explosion of a population of the elderly in the wealthy countries - all of it leading to an unprecedented worldwide economic recession, an increase in localised and possibly large-scale armed conflicts...and perhaps worse. Still, Faye reminds us, we should not give in to pessimism: what we are experiencing is not an apocalypse, but a metamorphosis of humanity. We might have reached the end of what the Hindu traditions refer to as the Kali Yuga, the 'age of iron' marked by materialism and selfishness, but those who survive the catastrophe and chaos will perhaps build a new and better humanity.”
Today there is a meeting by video of the OPEC states and Russia. Tomorrow the energy ministers of all G-20 states will likewise meet. Their discussions will be about the sinking global oil price caused by a lack of demand due to the novel coronavirus pandemic and record oil output from Saudi Arabia and Russia. 'Western' media have been optimistic that an agreement will be found: The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and other producers including Russia, a group known as OPEC+, are expected to discuss record cuts equivalent to 10% to 15% of global supplies, although demand has plunged by up to 30%. It is unlikely that OPEC will agree on any cut unless the U.S. and other large producers join the deal. The U.S. is, for now, unlikely to do that.
Face masks still coming from China? Have a look at this and think about whether or not this is a good idea:
“Over the past few weeks, as Chinese health officials reported new “imported” coronavirus cases almost every day, foreigners living in the country have noticed a change. They have been turned away from restaurants, shops, gyms and hotels, subjected to further screening, yelled at by locals and avoided in public spaces. “I’m walking past someone, then they see my blue eyes and jump a foot back,” said Andrew Hoban, 33, who is originally from Ireland and lives in Shanghai. Experiences range from socially awkward to xenophobic. An American walking with a group of foreigners in a park in Beijing saw a woman grab her child and run the other way. Others have described being called “foreign trash”. A recent online article, under an image of ship stacked with refuse being pushed away from China’s coast, was headlined: “Beware of a second outbreak started by foreign garbage.” As China moves towards getting back to normal after months of paralysis, authorities are focused on avoiding a second wave of infections from overseas. In the last seven days, China has reported only six locally transmitted cases but dozens arriving from abroad. By last Thursday, officials had reported a total of 595 imported cases since the outbreak began, the main source being the UK. Observers say the focus on imported cases has led to an increase in anti-foreign sentiment, which according to some has been on the rise for years. “There is an effect when state media are reporting this is a foreign virus,” said Jeremiah Jenne, an American historian living in Beijing. “It is a new variation of a familiar theme: don’t trust foreigners. If there is another flare-up in China, the blame will fall on people coming from outside.” Last Saturday, the country temporarily closed its borders to all foreign arrivals. Officials have also ordered local airlines to maintain only one route per country per week. Some say the focus on foreigners – surprising given that 90% of imported cases were Chinese passport holders, according to the country’s foreign ministry – is the leadership’s attempt to shore up its image. “If there is an opportunity to make themselves look strong, competent and legitimate by capitalising on public anxiety, they’ll take it,” said Mike Gow, a lecturer at Coventry University’s School of Strategy and Leadership. “If that happens to stoke xenophobia, so be it.”
Maybe, just, maybe, after the globalists have fully exploited the present biocrisis, there may be a tiny residue of nationalism still left, and at least some important drugs will be once again made in the West, and not China. I have heard nothing about this issue in passive Australia, but in the US, there is some movement at the front:
“Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) called on the United States to rebuild its domestic pharmaceutical manufacturing capacity in order to end China’s monopoly on the drugs Americans rely on. “I encourage my colleagues to support the bipartisan Securing America’s Medicine Cabinet Act,” Blackburn said in a floor speech on Wednesday, as the Senate discussed the coronavirus relief bill. Blackburn opened her remarks by acknowledging the “gross malfeasance” of China’s communist regime in handling the coronavirus pandemic. “After we acknowledge Beijing’s gross malfeasance,” Blackburn said, “we’re going to adjust the way we think about China in the context of the economy, of our national defense, technology, human rights, and pharmaceutical manufacturing.”

The impact of the Covid 19 virus has reached every corner of society’s activities. It has revealed some practices which could be changed to provide a benefit even beyond the current dilemma. A good deal of office computer work can be done at home. The employee can receive work to be done and return it by email to the office. This would reduce the need for travel to work by car or public transport providing immediate relief from traffic and parking problems. Another gain would be less emissions. One day per week at the office would allow for personal interchange if necessary. The virus and subsequent economic implications have also emphasised the need to be independent and this applies from the individual right through to the State and nation. We have become too dependent on foreign countries in all areas. Problems have arisen when we depend on them to supply our needs and when they can no longer access our products. The remedy will involve reconsideration of Australia’s commitment to schemes like the Lima Agreement (Agenda 21 etc) where we agree to allow our industries to go off-shore to assist developing nations. Trade Agreements can have a similar effect. The negative side of globalisation has been clearly exposed. Will we take heed?

The coronavirus is marching through South Korea now, showing how ineffective communist China’s control mechanisms were. The bigger surprise is that Italy now faces the infection, with a quarantine of 12 towns, so the bug has reached Europe. Italy now has 132 cases of the virus infection, and rising.
Medical supplies are fast disappearing, the Chinese getting ahead of the curve. Our just in time delivery system, is highly vulnerable, operating on the edge of collapse, much like the wider social system. This video may produce the appropriate sense of angst:
Welcome to the new Cold War, with China now taking the place of the USSR:
“It’s the world’s second largest economy in nominal GDP and, with 1.4 billion people, the most populous nation. It boasts the world’s largest military force with 2.2 million active personnel and another 510,000 in reserve. It has financially colonised much of the South Pacific, central Asia and Africa. Now it is buying influence in Europe, with heavy investments in Greece, including ownership of the port of Piraeus. China is home to the world’s most extensive expressways and high-speed railways. There are 298 airlines and 235 airports. According to Credit Suisse, for the first time there are more rich people in China than in the US. Of the world’s wealthiest 10 per cent, 100 million are Chinese, 99 million are American. China is also home to 12 of the 100 largest companies in the world. Yet the UN still recognises China as a “developing” country. At the World Trade Organisation, it enjoys the same “special and differential treatment” as Zimbabwe and Haiti. Naturally, Beijing sees no reason to give up this self-declared status, claiming the preferential treatment it enjoys is a “fundamental right”. Commerce ministry spokesman Gao Feng recently -described China as the “largest developing country in the world”. That it certainly is. The WTO does not define a developed or developing country. Nor does it provide benchmarks or guidance. This is left entirely to the discretion of -individual members.

The World Health Organization has now declared the coronavirus epidemic a global pandemic. But it stopped short of advocating closing borders, although sensible countries like Russia, have already done so, and good for them:
“The World Health Organization declared on Thursday that the Wuhan coronavirus outbreak was a global health emergency, acknowledging that the disease now represents a risk beyond China, where it emerged last month. The decision reversed the organization’s decision just a week ago to hold off such a declaration. Since then, W.H.O. officials said, thousands of new cases in China and clear human-to-human transmission in several other countries — now including the United States — warranted a reconsideration of that decision by the agency’s expert committee. The W.H.O.’s declaration — officially called a “public health emergency of international concern” — does not have the force of law. But it serves notice to all United Nations member states that the world’s top health advisory body thinks the situation is grave. Governments then make their own decisions about whether to close their borders, cancel flights, screen people arriving at airports or take other protective measures.”
