The Chinese government is mocking US efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic in a new video that stars the Statue of Liberty made of Legos. A video titled “Once Upon a Virus” was posted this week to the official Twitter accounts of both the Chinese embassy in France and the state-run China Daily newspaper. The animated short depicts what the Chinese describe as the US’ botched response to fighting the coronavirus. The video shows a Chinese warrior from 2,000 years ago, also made of Legos, and the Statue of Liberty arguing about the deadly infection — with a Scott Joplin-esque piano rag

China has been at war with us for 30 years or more. And our corrupt politicians prior to Trump were busy taking money under the table while moving our factories to China. We need to increase pressures to stop purchasing ANYTHING from China. The ChiComs are evil.

Calling Doctor Biden. No not you Jill. Doctor Biden, what do you suggest we do about this China thing ? Did you ask your son the Chinese hedge fund "manager" ? I have begun checking labels and anything that says "Made in China" stays on the shelf.

So that's China's answer, is it? Totally distort the record, ignore their own public statements in writing, create an entirely fake fantasy of the events in December and after? Ignore their cancelling flights from Wuhan to other cities in China, but continuing international flights? Total Bee Ess!

China is like a mangy dog nipping at the tail of a rattlesnake. They are the ones truly hurting, between the loss of manufacturing and delivering goods to the United States, as well as not being able to have their students/workers/spies running around our country with impunity. They only thrive by stealing ideas. They must be going through withdrawal like a bunch of crack addicts. They are being insulting as a means of pretending to be strong. Sadly, our press outlets seem to be on the side of the Chinese, since they hate Trump more than they love our country.

It seems that the Chinese state media, the US leftist and liberal Democrats who are home hiding in their basements, along their US liberal media cohorts, are all on the same track blaming President Trump for a supposed incompetent and unequal US response to the COVID-19 pandemic. No doubt those entities want the US economy to stay shutdown for an indefinite period, until medical science can come up with a proven effective vaccine which could take years, thus destroying the US economy, by running a huge number of US businesses into bankruptcy and creating massive unemployment across the USA. It’s evident the motives for that attitude is to drive Trump from office and to transform the USA into an eventual leftist and liberal Democrat run socialist utopia.

President Trump needs to go to the Theme Park and flip Winnie the Pooh the finger. Chinese mock their dictator as looking like the cartoon character. It's so bad that China has banned the image of the critter. That photo would go "viral" in China, assuming it could survive in their massive censor labyrinth.

New Jersey Turnpike Authority earnings dipped by $21 million for the first three months of 2020, said Donna Manuelli, Turnpike Authority chief financial officer on Tuesday.

The move angered Democrats on Capitol Hill, who said President Trump is playing games with the Defense Department’s money, moving money to further his own ends and ignoring what Congress intended. To make matters worse, they said, is the European Defense Initiative is a signal of support for U.S. allies against Russian aggression, and cutting the money is dangerous. “Once again, the Trump administration is putting domestic political considerations ahead of national security,

When the postmortem is done on the media’s coverage of COVID-19 (and it will be), it will be clear that the virus was no Black Plague — it’s not even the flu on a bad year. SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, has killed 56,749 Americans as of Tuesday. That’s not good. But it’s not as bad as the 2017-2018 flu season, when 80,000 -plus perished. And it’s a long cry from what all the experts were warning about just a few weeks ago: First, they predicted 1.7 million Americans dead; then they redid the models (this time apparently entering a few more “facts”) and said 100,000-240,000 dead.

The Democratic political field is awash with designing women. Stacey Abrams, a former Georgia State House leader, is aggressively marketing herself as a potential vice president for Joe Biden — increasingly irritating those in the former veep’s orbit, an insider said. Meanwhile, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, one Biden’s 2020 presidential-race rivals, is rarely mentioned as a possible running mate. She has her sights set on something else — secretary of defense, say those familiar with her plans. Female former candidates have also been auditioning for the VP job — albeit more subtly than Abrams. On April 20, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar came in for a chummy appearance on Biden’s podcast “Here’s the Deal,”

Never was former Vice President Joe Biden the 2020 dream. He promised electability and familiarity, which turned out to be good enough for a plurality of Democratic voters in the early primaries. But now that every other Democratic contender has dropped out and dutifully lined up behind the presumptive nominee, that choice might be sitting less comfortably. Biden is campaigning from his basement, giving interviews in which he occasionally moves past gaffes into total incoherence, raising questions about his mental fitness. Worst of all, evidence for a sexual assault allegation against him begins to mount.

American universities once attracted students from around the world. Prestige places like Harvard and Caltech did so, but it also happened at good state schools like the University of Illinois, University of Texas and even my own alma mater, the University of Colorado. The scientific education was second to none. Even outside of science, a broad-based humanities program thrived. As an engineering student at CU, my required curriculum included two full years of “Great Books” where we studied Socrates, Homer, Virgil, Chaucer and Milton. But then some interrelated things happened.

People with low levels of vitamin D may be more likely to die from the coronavirus, according to a preliminary study. Researchers at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation Trust and the University of East Anglia in England compared the average vitamin D levels of 20 European countries with COVID-19 mortality rates — and found “significant relationships” between vitamin D levels and the number of deaths caused by this infection. The study, which has not been peer-reviewed, notes sun-starved “Nordic” countries are among the most at risk. “We believe that we can advise vitamin D supplementation to protect against SARS-CoV2 infection,” the

Cuomo said closing the subway for those hours would allow the cars to be sanitized every 24 hours during the novel coronavirus pandemic. De Blasio said that it would also benefit any homeless people who ride the subway during that time. "If you're not going back and forth all
