Still Made in China? By James Reed

     Face masks still coming from China? Have a look at this and think about whether or not this is a good idea:

  https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/mar/29/china-coronavirus-anti-foreigner-feeling-imported-cases

“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.”

Moving Beyond “Made in China” By James Reed

     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:
  https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/china-exploit-control-of-pharmaceutical-exports-by-brahma-chellaney-2020-03
  https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2020/03/25/watch-marsha-blackburn-end-the-control-the-madmen-in-beijing-have-over-americas-drug-industry/

“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.”

Letter to The Editor - The virus and subsequent economic implications have also emphasised the need to be independent

Sent to Advertiser and Country papers

Dear Editor
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?

Yours faithfully

Coronavirus Visits Italy: Pizza? By Brian Simpson

     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.

Cold War 2.0 By James Reed

     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.

Those Who Live by Globalism, Die by Globalism By James Reed

     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:
  https://www.ft.com/content/75adafb6-4306-11ea-abea-0c7a29cd66fe
  https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/30/health/coronavirus-world-health-organization.html
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-01-30-w-h-o-declares-global-pandemic-coronavirus.html

“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.”

The Existential Threat of China By James Reed

     I have been saying for a long time, that China is an existential threat to the West.  With respect to Australia, as I will detail in another article, some Australians are going to be lucky to even have enough water in the future. But for now, consider:
  https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2020/01/16/human-rights-watch-china-poses-existential-threat-rights-people-worldwide/

“An unchallenged China will herald in “a dystopian future in which no one is beyond the reach of Chinese censors, and an international human rights system so weakened that it no longer serves as a check on government repression,” Human Rights Watch warned in its annual report on the country published Wednesday. The 2020 China report from the non-governmental organization (NGO) accused both states friendly to China and corporations that do business with it of “enabling” China’s increased use of violence and systematic state repression to silence political dissidents, religious groups, and ethnic minorities. Human Rights Watch published the report shortly after Beijing banned its executive director, Kenneth Roth, from traveling to Hong Kong for an event to release it. Roth presented the report at an event in New York at the United Nations headquarters instead, despite the report being heavily critical of the U.N. as an institution. The report also attempted to criticize President Donald Trump for referring in friendly terms to Chinese dictator Xi Jinping, but ultimately conceded that “the Trump administration is one government that has been willing to stand up to China, best evidenced by its October 2019 imposition of sanctions on the Xinjiang Public Security Bureau and eight Chinese technology companies for their complicity in human rights violations.”

China Drinks Big on Queensland Water By Paul Walker

     The resource war, especially the battle for water is now on, and China is making sure that it does not get thirsty. As for the local Aussies on water rations, well the governments will be doing all they can to do precisely nothing, and allow China first, second and third drink, as is the law of the New World Order:
  https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2020/jan/02/queensland-government-was-warned-about-risks-of-chinese-companys-water-extraction

“Queensland government experts raised repeated warnings about the long-term sustainability of groundwater extraction at a southern Queensland property which has since been approved to operate as a commercial water mine. The approval for the 96m litre a year bottled water extraction operation at Cherrabah – in a severely drought-hit area where locals are on water rations and communities at imminent risk of running dry – has raised significant questions about the oversight and regulation of critical water resources in Queensland. Documents obtained by Guardian Australia show how longstanding concerns about groundwater security at Cherrabah were overridden by changes to Queensland law enacted by Campbell Newman’s government in 2013. Under the changes, the Chinese-owned company Joyful View Garden Real Estate Development Resort Pty Ltd was automatically granted a 94-year extraction permit at Cherrabah when a short-term allocation expired in 2017. Written concerns outlined in the documents obtained by Guardian Australia include the expert review of a study commissioned by Joyful View in 2009 that was the basis for its subsequent water extraction applications. The study contained repeated qualifications that its modelling could not be relied upon for a period longer than 12 months.

Letter to The Editor

To The Northern Daily Leader

  Dear Sir/Madam

     My memory is still long enough to remember that we (Australia) applied sanctions against Rhodesia for the "terrible" Smith regimes alleged repression of the people of that nation. Also against South Africa for same reasons.  Sanctions have been applied to other nations as well and it strikes me as odd that we have not applied sanctions on China and demanded “regime change” because of China's repression of her people’s. Have I missed something somewhere, is there a good reason for this or are we already a colony of China? So went a letter I sent and was published at least locally in Inverell 2 weeks ago. Today I read that there is a Communist China flag flying over a Police Station in Victoria. This as reported in On Target by James Reed and I commend watching the Andrew Bolte video clip. Note what he says that this flag does NOT necessarily represent those Chinese who came to Australia years ago. Also the fact that whilst that flag flies over our police station down there we see Chinese in Hong Kong standing their ground against a power they know to be completely undesirable, untenable for them for them to even contemplate, ie to be swallowed up by the totalitarian control of a state where the State is god. They have had a taste of freedom and know what is happening inside China, whilst here in OZ we have no idea what it is to live in a police state. Read Solzenitzen, it is happening here, ALL our political parties have sold us out, Why do we vote for them, to do so is to be complicit in the betrayal of our nation and our Christian heritage. We can only pray that our own people, especially those we call leaders and pastors in our churches will come to realize what we have BEFORE it is gone. This is what my words about the lies that blind in DYNOEMS is all about.

Scott Morrison: Glimmers of Nationalism? By James Reed

     I was pleasantly, if not peasanty, surprised to read this glimmer of opposition to the New World Odour, sorry, Order, by our pm. Yes, the NWO even mentioned by name in the article, not an invention of my fervoured imagination. But it seems like only yesterday that when Eric Butler and Jeremy Lee spoke about the New World Order, the mainstreamers poo-pooed it, but now, well here you go:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/nation/politics/pm-slap-for-un-in-new-world-order/news-story/b9e5a5f5058d69c7e2ae449275770154

“Scott Morrison has declared his government will lead the charge in asserting the authority of nation states over unelected international -institutions, such as the UN. The Prime Minister, in a major foreign policy address to the Lowy Institute on Thursday evening, signalled Australia would seek to play a greater role in shaping a new economic and strategic world order. Mr Morrison’s speech was aimed squarely at the push by the UN to set the global agenda on issues such as climate change and refugee policies. As democratic nations increasingly band together to counter a rising China, Mr Morrison announced he would visit India and Japan early next year and Indonesia next month. Mr Morrison’s visit to Washington DC late last month sparked debate about how the nation should balance its relationship with the US and China, but he told the Lowy Institute it was not a “binary” equation. While Mr Morrison recognised the benefits the global economy had brought Australia, he declared that the ballot box should always be more powerful than international institutions. He warned that where elite opinion became disconnected from the mainstream of societies, it could foster a sense of resentment and disappointment. “(It is) an era of insiders and outsiders, threatening social cohesion, provoking discontent and distrust,” Mr Morrison said. He said Australia would partner with the international community through “practical globalism” and vowed to make fresh efforts to reshape inter-national rules, starting with a new audit of global institutions and rule-making processes. “We should avoid any reflex towards a negative globalism that coercively seeks to impose a mandate from an often ill-defined borderless global community. And worse still, an unaccountable internationalist bureaucracy,” Mr Morrison said. “Only a national government, especially one accountable through the ballot box and the rule of law, can define its national interests. We can never answer to a higher authority than the people of Australia.” He said Australia had played its part over the generations to build a better world through “co-operative and respectful internationalism”. But he warned that pragmatic international engagement was giving way to a new order that sought to “elevate global institutions above the authority of nation states to direct national policies”.

Ha! Ha! The Great International Student Bust Smashing the Universities! By James Reed

     The evil, evil, more evil Australian universities may soon be facing showtime, because they have put all of their eggs in the one basket hoping that the international student market, read
“China,” will be a boom forever like the mining boom of a while back. The government rubs its dark claws together glad to be getting backdoor migrants. But, maybe not forever:
  https://www.macrobusiness.com.au/2019/09/brace-for-the-chinese-international-student-bust/

“Chinese international students are by far the biggest contributor to Australia’s education export industry. As at June 2019, there were 204,000 Chinese students enrolled in Australian educational institutions, comprising 29% of total international student enrolments. The number of Chinese international students studying in Australia is also roughly double second placed India (104,000) and quadruple Nepal (52,000), as illustrated in the next chart: Late last month, the Centre for Independent Studies (CIS) sounded the alarm on this dependence, warning that a sharp pullback in Chinese student numbers could severely damage the finances of Australia’s tertiary institutions: International comparisons reveal the excessiveness of this China exposure. All seven [major universities] have higher proportions of international and Chinese students than any university in the entire United States. Indeed, all seven appear to be more dependent on feepaying Chinese students than just about any other universities in the English-speaking world.

We Have been Saying this Since Eric Butler By James Reed

     In the “we told you so department,” here is an article saying that he adoption of neo-liberal economic policies have destroyed the West, and china has capitalised upon this, which was the only sensible thing to do when your main competition cannot resist committing suicide. Here is Paul Craig Roberts summing it all up:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-08-24/what-globalism-did-was-transfer-us-economy-china-pcr

“The main problem with the US economy is that globalism has been deconstructing it. The offshoring of US jobs has reduced US manufacturing and industrial capability and associated innovation, research, development, supply chains, consumer purchasing power, and tax base of state and local governments. Corporations have increased short-term profits at the expense of these long-term costs. In effect, the US economy is being moved out of the First World into the Third World. Tariffs are not a solution. The Trump administration says that the tariffs are paid by China, but unless Apple, Nike, Levi, and all of the offshoring companies got an exemption from the tariffs, the tariffs fall on the offshored production of US firms that are sold to US consumers. The tariffs will either reduce the profits of the US firms or be paid by US purchasers of the products in higher prices. The tariffs will hurt China only by reducing Chinese employment in the production of US goods for US markets. The financial media is full of dire predictions of the consequences of a US/China “trade war.” There is no trade war. A trade war is when countries try to protect their industries by placing tariff barriers on the import of cheaper products from foreign countries. But half or more of the imports from China are imports from US companies. Trump’s tariffs, or a large part of them, fall on US corporations or US consumers.

Jacinda Arden’s Gun Banning Labour Party, Funded by Chinese Communists, Of Course By Bruce Bennett

     An older story, but still relevant in the light of New Zealand’s gun banning frenzy, which traces the financing of the ever politically correct Jacinda Arden’s Labour Party, which unlike the Australian version, still retains the “o,” in its name, which could be meaningful:
  https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12058818

“An influential United States Congress hearing has been told "one of the major fundraisers for Jacinda Ardern's party" is linked to the Chinese Communist Party and it showed China had penetrated New Zealand's political networks. As a result, US lawmakers needed to consider whether New Zealand should be kicked out of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance because of problems at its "political core". The bombshell testimony included claims from a former Central Intelligence Agency analyst that "anything on China that was briefed to Bill English was briefed to Mr Yang Jian", the National MP revealed last year as having trained spies for China. The hearing of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission was aimed at gathering evidence on China's relationship with traditional US allies. UN Senator James Talent - once touted as Donald Trump's pick for Secretary of Defence - raised concerns about "a sharp rise in political donations" from Chinese Government-backed bodies to political parties in Australia and New Zealand. China's actions included getting people linked to the Communist Party or People's Liberation Army elected and had made it worth the while of political figures "to parrot its line on issues it deems important". "It's important for the United States to consider that China may be testing methods of interference to probe for weaknesses in democracies in order to use the same techniques against Western countries in the future." The hearing heard testimony from former CIA analyst Peter Mattis who said the Chinese Communist Party had worked "very close to or inside the political core" of Australia and New Zealand and "one of the major fundraisers for Jacinda Ardern's party has United Front links". "That, you have to say, this is close enough to the central political core of the New Zealand system that we have to think about whether or not they take action and what kinds of action. What do they do to reduce the risk?"

Letter to The Editor - Each time we cringe, China squeezes the claws tighter

To The Advertiser, The evidence of Communist China’s influence in Australia has strengthened since books like “Silent Invasion” surfaced a couple of years ago. Our trade with China, whether it be exports of agricultural products, coal and iron ore or the university education multi-million dollar ‘industry’ we provide; we are clearly addicted to it.  No finger of criticism of China can be raised without a warning that, “we should be careful to not offend our major trading partner!” By example, witness the warning about China from Andrew Hastie which was quickly countered by Trade Minister Birmingham. Each time we cringe, China squeezes the claws tighter. It is ironic that former Prime Minister Tim Fischer, who died today, was a Vietnam veteran who fought in a bid to defeat the encroaching communist dictatorship; whilst today Prime Minister Morrison is in Communist Vietnam hoping to establish more trade and closer ties. Australia is becoming too dependent on communist nations to keep our economy afloat and our sovereignty is being compromised.

After the West: The Iron Rule of China By James Reed

     I have been writing about the China thereat for so long I cannot remember, and before me, the great Eric Butler expressed his concern, back even before the internet, when everything was done in paper, something I miss, hating computers. But I digress, when my concern is this, the latest in the Andrew Hastie debate about China on the road to world domination, giving some background information:
  https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/hastie-s-awakening-to-xi-s-bid-for-total-control-of-china-and-beyond-20190809-p52for.html

“In earlier years Hastie had noted China's vast, global infrastructure project, the Belt and Road Initiative spanning at least 68 countries to date, and still in its early phase. But it didn't occur to him that this might be just a minor part of a much bigger Chinese strategy until he opened an email from John Garnaut early last year. Garnaut is an Australian former Beijing correspondent for The Age and the Herald. He'd been retained by Malcolm Turnbull to write a classified report on China's operations in Australia. Garnaut's findings so alarmed the government that it led directly to Turnbull's bill outlawing foreign interference in Australia, a bill Labor helped pass into law. The Garnaut report remains classified. But Garnaut did send Hastie something else he'd written. As Hastie read, it struck him like a thunderclap. We all know that China is vital to the living standards we enjoy every day in Australia. And we all know that our dominant trading partner is driven by an ideology that's alien to our own. But how many of us have taken the trouble to study that ideology? And especially to study it in the way that Xi Jinping is implementing it in the world's rising superpower?

Sweden Rape… Eh… No… Feminist Trade Policy By Richard Miller

     Another look at the absolute absurdity that is Sweden, which by some miracle still exists. So, on the one hand we have feminist trade policies:
  https://www.thelocal.se/20190802/swedish-minister-calls-for-feminist-trade-policy

“Sweden plans to introduce a 'feminist trade policy' to ensure that female manufacturers, entrepreneurs and consumers benefit equally from trade policy. "Trade policy today benefits men more than women. Therefore, the government is now investing in a feminist trade policy that will contribute to the economic development of women and men to an equal extent," International Trade Minister Ann Linde wrote in an article published in Aftonbladet on Friday. She pointed to "inexplicable gender-coded differences in customs duties", which mean that products aimed at women typically have higher duties than those made for men. The feminist trade policy would also include a focus on gender equality in standardization issues, for example in vehicle safety. Linde states that women are 47 percent more likely than men to be injured in car accidents because safety standards are created based on male bodies. Another of the policy's aims is to simplify EU-wide trade in the service sector, which employs more women than men, in order to create more jobs and export opportunities, Sweden is well known for its feminist foreign policy, which was first launched when Prime Minister Stefan Löfven's centre-left government came to power in 2014 and includes international aid for reproductive health and promotion of women's rights globally.”

The Collapse of Civilisation 101 By Peter West

     Civilisations collapse when the elites become self-destructive in their greed and evil. This is a theme common to much of the reporting at this blog. Is it true? A scholarly book explores the same theme:  Anne Glyn-Jones, Holding Up a Mirror: How Civilizations Decline, (Imprint Academic, Thorverton, 1996). There is also a very good video about this which can serve as Collapseology 101, an introduction to this topic by Paul Joseph Watson, who argues that almost every factor that led to the collapse of past civilisations, can be found in the West, and there are more as well, generating a situation of over-determination:

Book Review - How They Run the World by Pedro Banos (Ebury Press, UK, 2019) By Nigel Jackson

     This international bestseller caused a few ripples when it was learned that, for this English language version, some references to the power wielded by the Rothschild family which appeared in the original 2017 Spanish first edition, have been omitted. A storm in a teacup: the author appears genuinely to have avoided negative bias against any political, ethnic or religious group. He is a colonel in the Spanish army and was formerly chief of counter-intelligence and security for the European Army Corps. He is said to be one of Europe’s top specialists in geopolitics, terrorism and intelligence.

     It is a sobering account, drawing from worldwide evidence taken from the near and far past, as well as present time. It is an antidote to much of the half-baked idealism common in Australia among political commentators and agitators. In his introduction Banos remarks: ‘The powerful have always tried to seize control wherever their tendencies can reach…..It’s important that we are aware of these strategies that allow the powerful to rule the world. We like to think of ourselves as free individuals who make autonomous choices about our lives….. However, we are in fact continually being induced to make certain choices, and the same thing is happening at the geopolitical level – countries are manipulated into making particular decisions and alliances, and their populations have no say in the matter.’

Trump, the Ultimate Chump By Charles Taylor

     President Trump is the very definition of a cuck puppet president, a low intellect fool, used as a tool by the real powers to be of the Deep State and beyond. Thus, he breaks every electoral promise made to traditional America who put him in place, then follows to the letter everything a globalist like Jared whispers in his senile shell-like ear. Harsh, but how else to explain “his” insane decisions, such as now selling arms to Taiwan! Of all things, China sees Taiwan as part of itself, and the case for this is overwhelming, it is like you Aussies saying that Tasmania is part of Australia, only much stronger:
  https://supchina.com/2018/11/26/kuora-explaining-chinas-case-against-taiwan-independence/

     No sane country should stand in the way of China and Taiwan reuniting in my opinion, and certainly it is not worth a nuclear war over it, as China has said that economic production and business will be as usual. China has already gone on a war footing because of the arms sale’s proposal, the dopiest, and most inflammatory of Trump’s long list of blunders.
