Rapidly Growing Nuclear Arsenal

Original Article

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken told a group of foreign ministers on Friday that he is deeply concerned about the rapid growth of China nuclear arsenal. Blinken made the remarks during a virtual meeting with the regional forum by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, (Snip). He called on China to stop its “provocative” behavior in the South China sea and raised concerns about human rights abuses in Tibet, Hong Kong, and Xinjiang, (Snip) “The Secretary also noted deep concern with the rapid growth of the [People’s Republic of China]’s nuclear arsenal which highlights how Beijing has sharply deviated from its decades-old nuclear strategy based on minimum deterrence,”


How about 250 new underground facilities for housing and launching intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), once it is done building them. Blinken is in so far over his head. He always looks fearful. He should be. A midget, not a statesman.

China does not worry about being "Woke". Instead, they concentrate on being the dominant power in the world.

A 3-chablis heartfelt lunch with his girl* friend is in order in order to emote his “deep concern.” *girl in this context means “human or nonhuman object of Blinken’s fantasies.”

Even dimwitted Blinken, part of the famed international naval warfare team Winken, Blinken and Nod, is worried. We should strike while we still can. But there is zero will, and we will not do it until after the 21st century version of Pearl Harbor, when it will likely be too late.

Richard Nixon once called out then-Secretary of State Dean Atcheson (a stereotypical striped-pants, Foggy Bottom fop), for running the “Cowardly College of Communist Contaiment.” This guy Blinken makes Acheson look like Curtis LeMay.

Well, Blinken you might take a look at what the Chinese are doing right here in the USA, starting with cyberwar to shutdown our infrastructure, stealing all our information, infiltrating all our companies and government agencies, marrying all the Senators, making up most of the foreign students, buying all our land and ports. We are the target. The South China Sea and Taiwan can wait until after the Chinese take over the Presidency. Maybe they have already. But Blinken is worried about the South China Sea, being a blitherer.

Even in the heyday of the Cold War, the USSR shared many Western cultural values with the USA and Europe. Specifically, some respect for human life, children, and family. I truly do not think that the ChiComs share those values and I think they believe they will survive a global nuclear holocaust simply because they are more numerous and more scattered. Further, I suspect they will be more willing to use nuclear weapons knowing we are too hesitant/cowardly to respond in kind.

Drew Altman, CEO and president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, said something very despicable about Americans who refuse to be vaccinated. This fellow who heads an untaxed foundation that is dedicated to improving health said, "A quarter of those who were unvaccinated say they will likely get a shot by the end of the year. Seeing their friends get sick and local hospitals fill up again with covid patients may speed them along and add them to the ranks." He is rooting for the infection of friends of Americans who assert their right not to be tampered with. The mission has shifted from fighting covid to coercing the vaccination of everyone.

President Joe Biden continues promoting coronavirus vaccine mandates for American citizens, but the White House still struggles to explain why that standard is not applied to migrants crossing the Southern border. White House press secretary Jen Psaki ignored a question Thursday asking if the administration wants to apply the same vaccine standards proposed for foreign visitors to migrants released into the United States. Psaki said that “interagency working groups” are developing a plan for international travel but did not address migrants coming across the Southern border.

I hate being right sometimes, and this is one of those times. As I feared, Brett Kavanaugh’s cowardice in not vacating the stay on the original eviction moratorium is coming back to haunt property owners across the country. In my previous pieces on this topic, I noted that Kavanaugh had the chance to join the conservatives, vacate the stay on the original moratorium, and do so in a way that clearly prevents any future issuance given how blatantly unconstitutional this theft of property is. Instead, perhaps in some misguided attempt to get the left to love him, the Trump-appointed justice joined the liberals, allowing the moratorium to continue and expire.
This is Nuts, Moderna and Pfizer Intentionally Lost The

Posted by earlybird 8/7/2021 1:09:38 PM Post Reply
This is not just scientific madness, it appears to be very intentional and purposeful. The Moderna and Pfizer vaccine tests were conducted, as customary, with a control group; a group within the trial who were given a placebo and not the test vaccine. However, during the trial -and after the untested vaccines were given emergency use authorization- the vaccine companies conducting the trial decided to break protocol and notify the control group they were not vaccinated. Almost all the control group were then given the vaccine. Purposefully dissolving the placebo group violates the scientific purpose to test whether the vaccine has any efficacy; any actual benefit and/or safety issues.

They are just making up narratives now, and the media are not calling them out on it…. The Director of the CDC made an important admission during an interview today on CNN. CDC Director Rochelle Walensky stated the vaccine does not prevent COVID-19 infection, nor does it stop the vaccinated person from transmitting the infection or the delta variant. According to Director Walensky, the only benefit from the vaccine now is presumably that it reduces the severity of symptoms. If a vaccinated and non-vaccinated person have the same capacity to carry, shed and transmit the virus – with or without symptoms – then what difference does a vaccination passport

Dr. Rochelle Walensky has been making the media rounds.

At most, they simply reduce the severity of the symptoms people experience if they do catch COVID. From this statement, Sundance draws the logical conclusion: Why should people get vaccine passports if they are both as contagious and as vulnerable to contagion as their unvaccinated cohorts?

The University of Wisconsin removed a controversial boulder from its Madison campus Friday after the Black Student Union and other activists objected to its description nearly 100 years ago with a racial slur. Chamberlin Rock, which rests atop Observatory Hill, is named after a 19th Century geologist and former university president, Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, whose work centered on glacial deposits, according to a bio on the university’s website. But it was a reporter’s reference to the rock in a nearly century-old Wisconsin State Journal article that prompted the push for its removal. In October 1925, the university had the boulder excavated and placed prominently atop the hill to honor Chamberlin,
