A falsified image published by the Chinese Foreign Ministry depicting an Australian soldier beheading an Afghan child also generated outrage among Australians. Sam Kennard, the CEO of Australian Self Storage company Kennards’, urged Australian businesses to eliminate Chinese suppliers on Wednesday, News.com.au reported. “The Chinese Communist Government has proven to be difficult to trust,” Kennard told News Corp Australia’s NCA NewsWire. “They’ve placed tariffs on [Australian] lobster, wine, and barley out of revenge or spite and the risk is, you just don’t know who is next,” he said.

Hubby and I were discussing the willingness for the democrat party to bow and scrape before China. It boils down to one thing, money. Democrats would willingly sell out this country if it meant they would get filthy rich. As usual, they don’t think this through. Once the Chinese have bought you, you will obey whatever they say. It’s all fun and games in the beginning when the money is rolling in, but then, the pressure to obey builds until you are nothing but a slave to their demands. To believe they will be honest partners is the height of naivety. The Bible tells us the love of money is the root of all evil-I give you the democrat party and every squishy Republican who believes China is our friend.

Why are we doing business with China? That country has a horrible human rights record. We don’t need their cheap crap. Make stuff in America and trade with other countries like the UK and Australia that treat their people properly.

China is once again going to be an overpopulated, starving nation and when the people finally turn on Xi it won't be pretty. Much like North Koreans, they deserve better.

Buying non-chicom products like cars, houses, and food products is easier. But, buying non-chicom clothing apparel is darn hard. Buying non-chicom technology like laptops, ipads, and cell phones is easier, but, only the final assembly point is shown on the label. Buying non-chicom sporting goods and housewares is nearly impossible - you just need to look hard. Very hard.

I've already been boycotting Chinese products for years. If it says "Made in China", I put it back on the store shelf. I try to research where larger purchases were made too. Not always successful but I make an effort not to support the Chinese. Can't get my husband to this but I try.

#4 - "It’s all fun and games in the beginning when the money is rolling in, but then, the pressure to obey builds until you are nothing but a slave to their demands." These people are in their 70's and 80's, with some fast approaching their 90's, and their bodies and minds are winding down. They have got to be tired! Biden, Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer and McConnell, INC are fully paid-for commodities, and very expensive commodities. I don't think the Communist Chinese believe in retirement. Last night on TCM was "The Devil and Daniel Webster", from a 1936 short story by Stephen Vincent Benét, with a great cast headed by Walter Huston. I haven't seen the movie since I was a kid and I could only remember the end. A young farmer with everything going wrong is approached by a man named Scratch, who offers a bag of gold and seven years good luck. The farmer need only sign over his soul; something Scratch tells him doesn't exist; a nothing, you can't hold it, touch it or see it. He agrees and Scratch pricks his finger for the blood with which the contract is signed. Of course, moral ruin is the result but with contrition in the final hour before the contract comes due. By a twist of fate Daniel Webster acts as a defense lawyer for the farmer in a court straight from hell, with Benedict Arnold as the jury foreman, yet wins the case...and the farmer's soul. This great American morality play should be shown to every citizen. Its a grand production from a time when Hollywood was peopled by patriots and lovers of God. I noted that it was made in 1940, on the eve of WWII, and set in the America of 1840. An America where Revolutionary War veterans lead the town parade. An America where people still understood what being a Freeholder meant to being a citizen, and great men would fight for the farmer. God did not make Donald J. Trump to have him be a sacrificial lamb to the godless communists. Every attack on President Trump is an attack on every American. We are in this fight together with our Lion leading an army of 80 million wronged citizens with moral authority behind them. Our leader is not stepping down and neither are his Deplorables, who are stepping forward with their testimonies or protesting in their state capitols. This courage is born from the example of our President, and the people turning back to God. Above the evidence, above our actions, above our dedication, our first and most powerful weapon in this fight is prayer. Evil is powerless against Faith and Prayer. MAGA - In God We Trust

Facebook has de-prioritized removing hateful slurs against white people, men and Americans, instead focusing on blocking slurs against black people, gays, Jews and other groups. The change on Thursday in Facebook's algorithm is a shift from the social network's 'race-blind' system that previously removed anti-white insults as well posts such as 'men are dumb' or 'Americans are stupid.' [SNIP] 'We know that hate speech targeted towards under-represented groups can be the most harmful, which is why we have focused our technology on finding the hate speech that users and experts tell us is the most serious,' said Facebook spokeswoman Sally Aldous.

Within the last two weeks, Mexico has surpassed more than 1.11 million confirmed cases of coronavirus and reported over 105,000 deaths – the fourth highest virus death toll in the world, behind the US, Brazil and India respectively. Mexico also has the second-highest case fatality rate per every 100,000 residents of any country in the world at 9.5 percent. Only Yemen, with a fatality rate of 28.3 percent, has fared worse.

Dennis Kucinich. Few names in Cleveland politics elicit stronger reactions. Elected mayor in 1977 at age 31, he is best known for a tumultuous two-year tenure and for refusing to sell the city-owned utility – then Muny Light -- as the city faced default in 1978, 42 years ago next month. Now 74, Kucinich is publishing a book, “The Division of Light and Power,” about his effort to save the power company, now known as Cleveland Public Power. In an exclusive interview with 3News, Kucinich talked about the book, the current state of the troubled utility and whether his future includes another bid for mayor.

Is a rebellion against President Trump brewing in federal courts in the District of Columbia? We ask because of the latest development in the case of General Michael Flynn. A judge has questioned whether Mr. Trump's pardon of the general might be "too broad." The judge who made that comment isn't handling the Flynn case. His comment is shocking, though, while the judge who is sitting on General Flynn's case has yet to respond to the government's motion that the case be dismissed as pardoned. It was back in July that these columns first warned that Judge Emmet Sullivan, who

Voters who imagine that they control what the government does are mistaken. Our federal government is really at the mercy of the huge unelected bureaucracy, the Deep State, that represents the “big” in our bloated federal government. Everybody who lives within 15 miles of Washington is part of it, or so it seems. Of all the ways in which the Left is attempting to redefine America, its support for an enormous bureaucracy has been the most successful.The people we elect—the president and Congress—are merely a front for the Deep State. The federal government has become separated from the American public that it is supposed to serve.

For the third time in less than 30 hours, four justices on the state Supreme Court dealt President Donald Trump a setback Friday, saying they wouldn't accept a lawsuit by Trump allies who wanted to let Republican lawmakers instead of voters decide how to cast the state's electoral votes. As with two decisions Thursday, Friday's ruling was 4-3, with conservative Justice Brian Hagedorn joining the court's liberals to rebuff the president as he seeks to take away Democrat Joe Biden's narrow win of the state. "The relief being sought by the petitioners is the most dramatic invocation of judicial power I have ever seen," Hagedorn wrote.

A federal appeals court in Georgia has approved an expedited review of pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell’s request for a forensic review of voting machines in three counties.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Batten Sr. issued an order on Sunday restricting officials in Georgia’s Cherokee, Cobb, and Gwinnett counties from resetting Dominion Election Systems voting machines because of the lawsuit.
