I think it was a honest fuck up, but they tried to make the best of it by spreading it to the west as much as possible.
Title post best post.
but it literally says:

>"Let me be clear: this does NOT prove that CoV2 was synthesized in the laboratory."

nice tin foil hat
Imagine thinking Steve Bannon's propaganda was real.
Why would you lie like this? They are the #1 exporter on the planet:

$2.59 trillion Exports vs. $1.61 trillion Imports, $1.1 trillion of which goes to factories making exports (so in the end, $110 million in imports vs. $2.59 trillion in exports).

Key Facts

“You'll develop herd—like a herd mentality. It's going to be—it's going to be herd-developed,” Trump replied in response to host George Stephanopoulos, who asked the president to clarify his statement that the virus will “go away without the vaccine.”

Walter Shaub, former director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, tweeted: “I can’t bear knowing that his supporters don’t care that he is the stupidest public figure in the entire world.”

“To achieve a herd immunity of 60%, around 200 million Americans need to catch the coronavirus and 3 million Americans need to die,” Dr. Eugene Gu, a Stanford-educated physician, wrote on Twitter.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham criticized the town hall as an “ambush” on Trump, while conservatives on social media wondered if a former Republican press secretary would be allowed to question Joe Biden, in reference to Stephanopoulos’ former role as White House communications director under Democrat Bill Clinton.

>he actually thinks this will work
>Dr. Eugene Gu
This guy spent months trying to downplay the virus and ignoring evidence to the contrary until it became too much and he flipped. Now he says 3 million will die, based on what? His "expert" opinion? The opinion he forms prior to looking at any evidence and then posts on twitter to promote his views? Trump is wrong about herd immunity, but I still want to hear from doctors who approach the disease medically, not politically. Gu is more Twitter personality than scientist. That Forbes would quote Gu shows that they need to do better, having the loudest voice don't mean he's right, even with an MD.
MD doesn't really mean shit for this sort of thing. Just because they see patients doesn't make them qualified to provide input on epidemiology. Especially in the case of Gu who is a surgeon.
He's quoting the CDC estimate for herd immunity requirements, against one of the thirty variants of the virus, assuming no more crop up (which seems unlikely, as those first 30 showed up within the first four months).

It's not saying 3 million *will* die, it's saying you'd need that many *need* to die, to achieve the fantasy of herd immunity. At least a 60% infection rate, for each variant.

Like the flu, the virus isn't deadly enough to really develop herd immunity to. Eventually, it'll kill three million, just a matter of whether it's going to do that every three years, or every ten years. That'll depend on how much it's encouraged to spread in the first year, given that we are just about the largest human reservoir of the stuff on the planet now.
>200 million Americans need to catch the coronavirus and 3 million Americans need to die

death rate from corona is not 1.5%

Partisan Taint in the Trump-Russia Investigation
The topic of Trump-Russia collusion has been promulgated by many in the legacy news media. Often, skeptics of this narrative are pushed by institutional news media towards conservative news outlets. In recent days, there has been a major revelation buried in a Lawfare article, a publication that is no ally of the right.

At Lawfare, former National Security Agency general counsel Stewart Baker wrote that he will be testifying before the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (“PCLOB”) in regards to Russiagate. The PCLOB is an independent agency within the Executive Branch; its purpose is to act as a check on government surveillance after the establishment of the USA PATRIOT Act.

After two notable national security crises (9/11 and Spygate), Baker has interjected himself into the debate. On September 8th, Baker published an article at Lawfare that hints to his testimony before the PCLOB. His testimony suggests that “Like It or Not, Trump Has a Point: FISA Reform and the Appearance of Partisanship in Intelligence Investigations.”

The key points from Baker’s testimony are as follows:

Campaign Mudslinging: Baker contends that the Hillary Clinton campaign, in an attempt to deflect from the FBI investigation into her handling of the private email server, sought to tarnish the Trump campaign with an FBI investigation of its own. “The Clinton Campaign, like any other, had assembled opposition research files on Trump. Focusing some of that research on his disturbing affinity for Vladimir Putin was not an exactly original idea.”

You are right for the wrong reasons.
By exposing every fault of Trump to the public you have made him the most transparent administration in history. You've turned a real estate agent into an honest politician.

Just look at Bob Woodward's tapes. You had daily coronavirus press conferences.

Oh and we just had two peace treaties signed for Israel, and more to come. Arab countries don't want to war with Israel, they just have been politically stuck due to their desire to protect the Palestinians.
Trump prefers cheeseburgers and diet coke. Also he eats hos pizza backwards with a knife and fork.
Seriously, if Trump is a knife and fork pizza eater, that is actually the worst thing I have heard about him in the last four years. Seriously, who eats Pizza with utensils? It's fingerfood, like french fries or chicken wings. Are there anons who eat their Pizza with a fork and knife? If yes, please explain, WHY!?.
Knife and fork to keep your hands clean and avoid soiling a nice suit. It is also more hygienic. It also makes much more sense for very thick pizzas. If you had the capacity for empathy you would understand why.
He also likes steak well done with ketchup.
I eat pizza with a knife and fork, most of the time. Yes, I understand that it's weird. It's neater, but mostly habit.

>He also likes steak well done with ketchup.
God have mercy.

The central government and Hiroshima local governments appealed Wednesday a landmark ruling last month by the Hiroshima District Court that had recognized more victims of radioactive “black rain,” caused by fallout from the atomic bombing of the city, as eligible for support.

But the central government also said it would discuss expanding designated areas of support for the victims so that they would be able to receive assistance.

It was not immediately clear what kind of assistance would be offered or whether it would be the same as that received by victims in the current designated area.

The July 29 verdict by the district court, the first of its kind, recognized the 84 plaintiffs who had suffered due to black rain after the Aug. 6, 1945, atomic bombing as atomic bomb survivors, or hibakusha, making them entitled to free health benefits.

The plaintiffs had lived outside of a zone, officially designated by central government, in which people had to reside to be considered hibakusha. Because of that, the court’s decision, if it stands, could rewrite how Japan officially identifies such people, and expand the number of those eligible for benefits.

Yep... US has dropped that bombs...
Proof of black rain? The residual radiation was rather nil in the cleanup documents.
US is not paying anything. Lawful collateral damage from a valid military target.

>Some passengers are out of control. Just over a week ago an American Airlines passenger handed a flight attendant a vicious note, calling her a "gloried maid," "4 eyed c*nt," and saying that if it wasn't for this job, she'd be "cleaning motel rooms for $2 tips and meth." Fortunately American Airlines acted swiftly to ban this passenger.

>Well, now another flight attendant is reporting that she received a note from a passenger...

>An unhappy (or drunk?) American Airlines first class passenger
>On Facebook an American Airlines flight attendant shares what happened on a flight she worked yesterday from Tampa to Dallas. As she describes it from her perspective:

>She was on standby, and was called to work the flight at 4:15AM, and the entire crew working this flight will be furloughed in a couple of weeks (this is more for background than anything else)
>-The flight attendants did the full service in first class, including handing out snack bags during boarding, and serving drinks throughout the flight
>-Upon exiting the plane, one passenger handed one of the flight attendants a note
>-This man had four alcoholic drinks on this fairly short flight
>-Five minutes before the crew prepared the cabin for landing, the man came to the galley to ask for another Jack and Diet
>-The crew explained to him that they're about to prepare for landing, but they still served it to him though said that he'd need to finish it quickly
>So, what note did the passenger write for the crew?

Using the more formal complaint process would have likely gotten him the results he desired; at a later date.

Also this is probably Trump's fault
Where's the unabomber when one needs him?


In Portland a man was arrested for starting a small brush fire along I-205 was arrested again hours after he was released from jail after he started six more fires, WTF.

He was charged with seven counts of arson with other charges pending.
After he was arrested the second
time, he was taken to a hospital for a mental health exam.

What going on with the system in Portland?

USC Professor Placed on Leave after Black Students Complained His Pronunciation of a Chinese Word Affected Their Mental Health

The University of Southern California has placed a communications professor on leave after a group of black MBA candidates threatened to drop his class rather than “endure the emotional exhaustion of carrying on with an instructor that disregards cultural diversity and sensitivities” following the instructor’s use, while teaching, of a Chinese word that sounds like a racial slur.

Greg Patton, a professor at the university’s Marshall School of Business, was giving a lecture about the use of “filler words” in speech during a recent online class when he used the word in question, saying, “If you have a lot of ‘ums and errs,’ this is culturally specific, so based on your native language. Like in China, the common word is ‘that, that, that.’ So in China it might be ‘nèi ge, nèi ge, nèi ge.’”

In an August 21 email to university administration obtained by National Review, students accused the professor of pronouncing the word like the N-word “approximately five times” during the lesson in each of his three communication classes and said he “offended all of the Black members of our Class.”

The students, who identified themselves as “Black MBA Candidates c/o 2022” wrote that they had reached out to Chinese classmates as they were “appalled” by what they had heard.

Durham, NC's mayor Steve Schewel has been implicated in a redlining rent scam where in 2019 he, with HUD approval, raised low income tenant rents to 7% above the maximum allowed affordability limit. This is slated to be raised to 10% in 2020. This was done to benefit developer Ron Strom of Blue Heron Assett Management, a longtime friend of Schewel who donated $100,000 to Schewel's housing development company DVI Inc. shortly after being awarded the city contract. The issue of unaffordable rents was raised to HUD in 2019 by tenant Allen Botnick but their Greensboro Field Office misrepresented the affordability to Senator Richard Burr as being at the maximum affordability limit of 40% when it was actually at 47%, exceeding it by 7%. This has effectively redlined low income tenants out of most of the housing in Durham's existing tax credit apartments. Durham's affordable housing plan intends on evicting 49% of existing public housing tenants who are slated for redevelopment the unusable redlined vouchers which will result in their being evicted from housing assistance. A tenant's group led by Botnick, Durham HUD Tenants Union (Facebook group: Mayor Schewel's Affordable Housing Shakedown) is protesting the unaffordable rent redlining and has brought two complaints by Pastor Sylvester Williams and Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) tenant leader Allen Botnick to the North Carolina Human Rights Commission. Senator Burr is investigating the HUD misrepresentation. Community advocacy groups and tenants are mobilizing to defend from the attack on their housing.

Honestly, how many times can you raise awareness about domestic violence? I feel like the issue is so commonly known nowadays, it's hard for anyone to care about it. It's like: yes, domestic abuse is a thing. Whoop-dee-fucking-do. Extrajudical killings are a thing, too. As well as climate change. Everyone knows about it now. That's why it's not as effective an issue anymore.
>A widespread but illegal campaign by a group calling itself "the Gluers" uses posters to denounce violence against women. It has become an effective - and ubiquitous - tool to raise awareness.

>PARIS - On a recent mild night, a squad of four young women wandered through a peaceful neighborhood in eastern Paris, armed with a bucket of glue, a paintbrush and backpacks loaded with posters.

>They were looking for surfaces to paper with a stark message.

>"There, it's not bad, is it?" said Astrid Tenon, wearing all black, as she pointed to a 20-foot long wall, just east of the Marais neighborhood. Her comrade in arms, Chloé Madesta, holding a bucket, nodded.

>A well-choreographed operation immediately started: First, a woman brushed some glue over the wall, then a second woman pasted up page after page, while a third patted each piece down with another layer of glue.

>After less than seven minutes, the wall bore the words: "You said you loved me, but it was still rape."

I suppose it beats letting it fall into obscurity if they don't keep this up. But c'mon, man. People are only interested in what they don't know, not what they're already aware of.

Inevitable result of it being run by folks that are afraid of men, and, seeing the burning effigy they've created of masculinity as the source of all evil, they thus seek solace in some vision of a powerful goddess' arms that they've similarly manufactured to be the opposite, despite being almost identical, save sharing the female form. Just yet another tired old variant of what we see in every cultural conflict in society. Atheists and Christians, Democrats and Republicans, the ongoing battle between collective mom and collective dad.

But, as a lady oft described as the walking antithesis of feminism once said, "everything boils down to sex in the end", be it a battle for or a battle between. What you perceive as the resulting effort to castrate you, is more reflective of the turmoil within an unbalanced society, with members always listening to one extreme or another and imaging the worst, than it is a conspiracy to wreck said society. That particular fear is merely the manifestation of the resulting anger radiating from every side of the war for your allegiance.

On August 16, the Israeli navy declared the Gaza sea a closed military zone. A few days later, a group of Gaza fishermen decided to take their chances by fishing within a mere two or three nautical miles off the Gaza shore. No sooner had they cast their nets, Israeli navy bullets began whizzing all around them.


Soon after the incident, I spoke with one of these fishermen. His name is Fathi.

“My wife, my eight children and I, we all live off fishing. The Israeli navy shot at us today and asked us to leave the sea. I had to return to my family empty-handed, without any fish to sell and nothing to give to my children,” Fathi told me.

This fisherman’s story is typical. According to the Israeli rights group B’tselem, “about 95% of fishermen in Gaza live below the poverty line”.

Gaza’s fishermen are true heroes. Against numerous odds, they brave the sea every day to ensure the survival of their families.

In this scenario, the Israeli navy represents modern-day pirates opening fire at these Palestinian men – and, in some cases, women – sinking their boats sometimes and driving them back to the shore. In Gaza, this has been the routine for almost 13 years.

As soon as Israel declared the complete closure of Gaza’s fishing zone it prevented thousands of fishermen from providing for their families, thus destroying yet another sector in Gaza’s decimated economy.

If true, all US aid to Israel should be discontinued.
Piracy is the seizing of civilian vessels, cargo, or crew, often for ransom. Writ of Marquis allows a privateer to take naval actions as if it were a Navy vessel. Privateers acting under writ were often tried and executed as pirates by the opposing nation.
Are you joking?
What israel does all the freaking time is fuck the palestinians up and then slowly but surely go moving that line and taking more and more land.
The US supported Israel until now, hell I doubt they would stop supporting even if tomorrow Israel decided to wipe out what is left of the palestinians.
Some of you guys are real funny and obvious paleshills. Israel and the IDF has made it quite clear, Hamas is responsible for everything that comes out of, or happens inside of the Gaza strip.
Hamas is also the one that tried to change the "cease fire" status quo with the 2nd of august rocket attack towards a Drive-In in Sderot, after which two additional rockets were launched on the 16th of August. All the while incendiary balloons are launched daily.
Israel retaliated after each attack, but each event escalated the force of said retaliation.

TL;DR Israel wants peace through peace
Palestine wants peace through death

During a town hall with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Biden defended supporting China’s entering the WTO which has resulted in at least 3.4 million American jobs being eliminated from the United States economy — at least 2.6 million of which were eliminated in the manufacturing sector.

Biden stated
> We want China to grow. We don’t want a war with China. I said to Xi Jinping, you may remember the president wanted me to spend time with him as vice president, he couldn’t do it, so I traveled around the world with him. He asked, why do you keep saying you’re a Pacific power? I said because we are. We are a Pacific power. If we weren’t, you would not be able to have any stability at all.

> Hunter Biden, the former vice president’s son, helped the Chinese government acquire a Michigan-based automotive company that has gone on to expand jobs outside the U.S. in China, Mexico, Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, and South America.

>The latest Pew Research Center survey shows Americans nearly unanimously see China as a “threat” to the U.S. About 91 percent of Americans said China’s power and influence is more of a threat to the U.S. than global warming, Russia’s power and influence, the condition of the global economy, and global poverty.

The UN Secretary General Antonio Gutterres sparks anger with Tweet saying 'male-dominated culture damages everyone'
The UN published part of a speech by Secretary General António Guterres
The post has drawn 13,000 responses - many of which voice disagreement
Twitter users called on Mr Guterres to resign; others called to 'defund the UN'

Calls to 'defund the United Nations' are spreading online after the international body claimed the coronavirus pandemic is a demonstration of 'patriarchy'.

The UN's official Twitter account published part of a speech by Secretary General António Guterres, who was speaking on how the outbreak of Covid-19 has affected women.

The post has now drawn more than 13,000 responses - a significant proportion of which voice confusion, disagreement and bewilderment.

Mr Guterres was quoted as saying: 'The #COVID19 pandemic is demonstrating what we all know: millennia of patriarchy have resulted in a male-dominated world with a male-dominated culture which damages everyone – women, men, girls & boys.'
