And the Left considers China a 1st world superpower, and demands we treat them as equal to the U.S..

Do the hotel collapse victims count as coronavirus deaths?

That's Communist construction for you. It's a case of Communist government bureaucrats making construction decisions instead of true experts in the know.

This is the perfect metaphor for Communism. They can’t contain a virus; they can’t treat the people affected; and, when they quarantine a bunch of sick people, the bulding they’re in falls down on them! They can’t do ANYTHING right....

I'll bet they were packed like sardines in a rickety hotel no one would pay to stay at. Life is cheap in China.

#3, Communist corruption. I have no doubt that there are normal building codes in place, but a bit of payola and/or political pressure and those "requirements" are gone. Portland cement, steel, sand and gravel are what a concrete building is made of. Guess what gets shortchanged when corruption is going on? Hint: they don't short it on sand or gravel, at $5 a ton.

I'm pretty sure the highest risk factor for death due to 'coronavirus' in states like China and Iran is political persuasion. Those that oppose dictatorial goobernment have a much higher incidence of dying due to 'coronavirus' than those actually expsoed to the virus.

I've been to Quanzhou City a lot over the years. It's huge! It is very modern in the modern central areas and very "rustic" in the outskirts. I can guess which areas they put the victims into. I've been in slightly run down hotels and told it was the best hotel in the town. I saw some of the other hotels and had to agree that the one we were in was not so bad. Still, I can't imagine one of them simply collapsing. Maybe an older brick and wood building.

Arizona House Republicans passed a controversial bill that would ban biological males who identify as transgender females from participating in women's sports. Supporters say the "Save Women's Sports Act" is intended to prevent young girls and women in K-12 schools, community colleges, and state universities from being forced to compete against biological males, but opponents argue it allows for discrimination. House Bill 2706 passed along party lines 31-29 and is headed to the state Senate, FOX 10 reports. The bill is strongly opposed by Democrats.

President Trump promised to make the media and Democrats rue the fact that Joe Biden’s corruption in Ukraine has been placed off limits. The president phoned in to Sean Hannity’s Fox News program Wednesday night, just 24 hours after Biden’s incredible return from the dead. While much can still happen to once again alter everyone’s expectations, the former vice president is now seen as the clear frontrunner to win the 2020 Democrat presidential nomination. Hannity turned Trump’s attention to the work done by Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and Breitbart News senior contributor, as it relates to Hunter Biden, Joe Biden’s 50-year-old son, who received millions of

A serial subway scammer who allegedly tricks tourists into buying worthless MetroCards was sent to jail Thursday — after his 142nd career arrest. Charles Barry had enjoyed a revolving turnstile of justice for most of 2020, thanks to new bail reform laws that mandate zero bail for most non-violent offenses. He was arrested six times this year alone for allegedly stealing — or trying to steal — the cash of Manhattan straphangers, and once, on Feb. 4, actually taking cash from the hand of an elderly woman in a wheelchair. Each time, he’d either be given a desk appearance ticket or

A thief wearing a burqa and armed with a spray bottle made off with nearly $1 million worth of necklaces and watches from a Hudson Yards jeweler on Sunday, police sources said. The bling bandit, a man dressed in a burqa covering most of his face, walked into the luxury Piaget jewelry store at around 3:55 p.m. and asked to look at a necklace, sources and police officials said. As the clerk pulled out the necklace, priced at about $21,000, he noticed the man was holding onto one of the store’s watches, according to sources.

Stress, they say, is a killer. So let’s take a moment to feel sorry for Bill Clinton, who now claims he took advantage of Monica Lewinsky to “manage my anxieties” while president. Bill being Bill, there will be no real apology coming, just some typical and expected minimizing. “But whatever,” he says. “What I did was bad, but it wasn’t like — how can I think about the most stupid thing I could do and do it.” This is from a new documentary on Hillary, a for-hire job meant to canonize her and the would-be Clinton dynasty. And in typical Clinton fashion, they refuse to take the memo: Post-#MeToo, Bill is forever a liability.

With Joe Biden regaining his position as the Democratic front runner, the scrutiny of him by the right has renewed. When Biden looked like the helpless, distant finisher he was a few weeks ago, it wasn’t worth the energy. Things have changed in a hurry, though. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is still mumbling about billionaires, signaling that he’s not serious about doing what it takes to win the race. While Biden may represent a larger threat to Trump in a general election, he’s still a ripe target for political ridicule and the sights are starting to turn on one specific thing. Namely, the former Vice President’s mental health.

And we’ve upped that level of production to be able to maximize our inventory to be prepared for whatever unfolds here.” Consumers, particularly those closest to virus clusters, have been stockpiling canned soup and other shelf-stable foods as more cases of the disease are reported in the U.S.

Within a mere week, and apparently magically, the Democrat presidential primary race is down to two really old white guys (although a part-Samoan woman is still hanging on for some unknown reason since she hasn’t got a chance in hell). Except I don’t believe in magic – or coincidence, for that matter – when it comes to politics. Everything happens for a reason and, in the case of Democrats in particular, for personal or party gain (or both). Democrat operatives have been bleating the conventional wisdom throughout the Democrat-media echo chamber that Biden has “pulled off one of the most spectacular turn-arounds in presidential primary history,”

Now that the once-sprawling field of Democrats seeking the presidency has become a two-man race, many in the party are breathing a sigh of relief. All the more so because Joe Biden is the clear front-runner and the dreaded Bernie Sanders looks to be fading. So it’s all set. Biden will be the nominee and give the party a solid chance of scoring a November trifecta: beating President Trump, taking the Senate and holding the House. Count me as skeptical. Instead of a smooth ride, it’s more likely that the Dems’ desperate search for a Trump slayer will hit more turbulence and an alternative to Biden still could be necessary.

George Soros and other liberal billionaires are pushing large sums of cash into Chicago to back the far-left prosecutor whose office dropped charges against Jussie Smollett, the actor who staged a "hate crime" he attributed to Trump supporters. The reelection efforts of Kim Foxx, state's attorney for Cook County, Ill., received a boost from the Illinois Justice & Public Safety PAC. The committee, founded to support Foxx, has spent six figures on media productions and direct mail backing Foxx's candidacy, state records show, making it Foxx's largest backer so far. The PAC received its entire $2 million budget from a group created and funded by Soros.

I find myself trapped at home thanks to the simple act of attending a funeral at my synagogue — and while our quarantine so far is “voluntary,” we all understand it really is not. For the most part, quarantine means sitting at home, wondering if my wife and I will test positive, too. It means getting up each morning and hoping you have no symptoms, getting dressed with nowhere to go — not work, not morning service at the synagogue, which is closed, too, not even shopping for groceries.

But I understood the frustration of my campaign,” she said in the documentary about her life, according to the Washington Examiner.
