Up, Up and Away Open Thread

Did not have “Chinese balloon rings death knell for the USA” on my bingo card.

Jesse Kelly points out that this is all our own fault – we have paid for the rise of China from worthless Commie backwater to evil Commie superpower. And when you really think back on it all, just what was the point of normalizing relations with China? It is held up as Nixon’s signal foreign policy triumph but what, really, was the benefit of it? And I mean to the USA, to China and to the world?

It sure in heck didn’t help us in Vietnam. Nixon went to China in 1972 and that didn’t stop North Vietnamese tanks from rolling into Saigon in 1975.

It didn’t help bring down the USSR. “Play the China card” was supposed to be some super-trump in global foreign relations…but as far as getting rid of the USSR, China might as well not even been there.

China’s ruthless exploitation of poor and naive third world nations isn’t doing anyone any good.

China’s ruthless dumping of third rate goods and fentanyl into the USA is kinda a bad thing, right?

China’s corruption of the global Ruling Class is probably not working out as a net plus.

And then there is China, as such. Sure: Marco Polo bringing back the concept of pasta did wonders for dinner. Paper money? Maybe not such a good thing. Chinese music, art and architecture can’t hold a candle to the West. Philosophy? Confucius wrote down copy-book maxims designed to perpetuate his class in power…China has nothing to compare to Aristotle or Aquinas…not even anything as good as Ashoka or Averroes. Just what are we supposed to get out of China? Where’s the benefit? They’ve grafted onto the stump of Maoism the industrial Midwest…goody for them. What’s in it for us?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: there is no point in the United States having relations with nations like China. It is poison. Perhaps a free China would be worthwhile, but while China is under tyranny, we should be completely separate from them.

Pudding Brain’s people are claiming 517k new jobs in January.

This did not happen.

I’m telling ya: they’re just making the numbers up. We had report after report of major corporations downsizing all month and they pop up with 517k. Yeah, right. Keep in mind that even under the honest, the jobs number is a guess based on particular assumptions…for the dishonest, its any number they want…and in this case they wanted a number for China Joe to puff for his SOTU next week.

The MSM is already getting into “DeSantis is worse than Trump”. We all knew this was coming – the only question is how ready RDS is for it? Especially if it looks like he’ll be the nominee, they will pour garbage all over him…and he will be the subject of multiple federal and State criminal investigations. It doesn’t matter what about – they made it all up about Trump, they’ll make it all up about RDS. It will take real guts to overcome it – and we’ll see if RDS has that.

It is Black History Month and I guess Disney is running a bit for the kiddies asserting that America was built by slaves and other 1619 Project drivel. If you are not in favor of eliminating Woke corporations then you haven’t been paying attention.

    We should not have normal relations with China and we shouldn’t have normal relations with Democrats either. Both of them are satanic in the way they lie, deceive, and govern and neither should be treated with any respect. The Chinese are actively killing Muslims in their Western provinces, and Democrats are actively killing American children whether in the womb or on the streets of Chicago. And don’t expect Democrats to do anything about China either. The American Presidents son is a drug addicted moron who f**ks underage girls and Chinese spies, and was given millions by the Chinese government for access to the White House and Americas natural gas reserves. And as far as the rest of the Democrat Party goes; the girls are practicing their sexual grievance tik tok videos while most Democrat men are thinking they might be women, so they are an ignorant and confused bunch as well.

    A black Republican Congresswoman was attacked and killed yesterday and the media and WH are silent. I wonder what the reaction would be if the towel headed Muslim bitch from MN was killed.

    Several Republican governors had the chance to shoot down the Chinese balloon and they didn’t do it. I don’t know why in 21st century America, doing the morally right thing is so hard to do.

    Re: the battle in FL over CRT and black studies, shouldn’t we be asking the designers of that program why gender confusion and communism is such a large part of black culture? Seems weird.

    Re: the road back to sanity, I think we’re missing the boat. While it goes against every pro life fiber conservatives have, we ought to encourage abortions for all Democrat women and in fact subsidize it. No one wants any more narcissistic Democrats running around. Additionally, let’s encourage Democrat men to continue their journey to become that cartoonish version of women they all seem to embrace. They are definitely not men (is it just me or do most of them look terribly malnourished?), so becoming that trans woman is probably the best outcome for them.

    BREAKING: Billings, Montana @MMtTreasures just captured video moments after seeing a jet “go by so fast and then an explosion in the sky.” Was it the #ChinaBalloon? Nothing from the @PentagonPresSec or if the balloon was still in the area today. pic.twitter.com/WfckzMRGcI

      Well according to the Biden DOD moron, citizens don’t have the right to know what’s hovering above their States. “They can just look up”.

    Well now that it has traversed that continental United States and captured the imagery …

    Biden ‘WILL try to shoot down’ the Chinese spy balloon over the Atlantic as it exits the east coast above the Carolinas at noon today – so it can be captured and studied

    Isn’t this obvious at this point?? I mean for f**ks sake

    The balloon show over the US shows great weakness on the part of the Biden Administration. But the deeper message is that China is telling the world that they own Biden and therefore they run the US.

    I think what China is looking at are potential weak points for points of entry to deliver chemical or biological weapons attacks on the U.S.

    It would not surprise me in the least if we are attacked by China somewhere between now and the 2024 election. China hates President Trump.

    Senate panel investigating Hunter Biden’s failure to register as foreign agent

    The Obama administration did not prosecute Hunter Biden for potential violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act, despite its much more aggressive pursuit of FARA cases relative to other administrations – including its opening of criminal investigations on no fewer than six Trump campaign advisers in 2016.
    One of them, Paul Manafort, ended up in prison on charges that included failing to publicly disclose his lobbying on behalf of Ukrainian clients and partners.

    So, not only does Hunter skate on any investigation, charge or prosecution with this or any other of his many crimes, but it is painfully obvious the DOJ illegally uses its powers in selective, uneven, underhanded political applications that favor one party and heavily discriminates against another. The erosion of trust is far beyond a few small individuals. If anyone has any illusions as to why the left wants to confiscate all private guns, this is how every other country that once enjoyed basic freedoms was changed into rule by tyrannical overlords.

    Secret CCP Overseas Police Station in NYC Closed After Reported FBI Raid

    The facility, and more than 100 others like it, form a network of covert facilities from which experts believe that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is conducting a campaign of transnational repression.

    Chinese authorities maintain that the facilities, which operate in 53 nations, assist Chinese immigrants in foreign nations with tasks that would normally be handled by a consulate, such as renewing driver’s licenses and visas.

    Except, there are protocols in place that every other consulate must follow to be recognized by the host country. Seems China decided to bypass that requirement. I guess spy balloons aren’t the only thing China is using to gain access to the internal workings of the US and put covert cells in place for future need.

    The pharmaceutical industry is so powerful its corrupt tentacles is intertwined in many government agencies. The FDA no longer serves in the best interest of the citizens of this country and should be dismantled and prosecuted. That states like California is openly discriminating against conscientious medical providers, silencing them with the considerable threat, should be of grave concern for all.

    • The 2023 omnibus appropriations bill includes 19 lines that could give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration the power to ban off-label use of approved medications,

    • If the little-noticed provision is passed, doctors’ ability to freely treat patients, and patients’ ability to use all available treatments after making an informed decision, will be lost,

    • The amendment puts the FDA, and by proxy Big Pharma, at the helm of powerful health care decisions that should be made on an individual,
    personalized level between a patient and their health care provider,

    • In California, law AB 2098, which went into effect January 1, 2023, gives the state power to take away doctors’ medical licenses if they spread,
    “misinformation” that goes against the standard COVID-19 rhetoric/

    • The trend to allow a Pharma-controlled government to silence your doctor and dictate basic components of your medical care is not confined to the U.S. — it’s happening globally

      Thanks for this info. I have been appalled for a couple of years now about the government assumption of control over how doctors can treat patients. From governors banning certain drugs known to be safe but on the wrong side of the political argument —–that is, alternatives to the government pushing of experimental drugs on the people—to the government taking away medical licenses and even threatening jail sentences for doctors doing what they are trained to do, it has been an absolutely horrible example of tyranny, yet unnoticed by the Agenda Media.
