The University of Queensland is what Australians call a “sandstone university,” something like the American Ivy League in prestige. Queensland consistently appears on lists of the world’s 100 best universities and is widely seen as one of the top three in Australia.

Lately, however, its cozy relationship with China has ignited a firestorm. Questions have been asked in Australia’s Parliament, and stories in the country’s leading newspapers and on its public television network have raked administrators over the coals. A Journal news story offers an overview of the scandal.

Queensland’s purgatory began last July during a peaceful student demonstration in support of Hong Kongers protesting for democracy and in solidarity with persecuted Uighurs in Xinjiang. The demonstrators were set upon by what observers said was a well-organized group of about 300 students and nonstudents, many shouting slogans in Chinese. As some filmed the rally, counterdemonstrators snatched megaphones from the pro-Hong Kong and pro-Uighur protesters and sought to break up the rally. Punches were thrown.

Xu Jie, China’s consul general in Brisbane, commended the counter-demonstrators for their “acts of patriotism,” while blaming the pro-Hong Kong students for “igniting anger and sparking protests from Chinese students.” In a highly unusual step, Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne warned all foreign diplomats in Australia to respect the rights of free speech and peaceful protest. Amid all this, the press reported that Mr. Xu had recently been appointed an adjunct professor at the university.

RUSH LIMBAUGH: WE DON’T KNOW HOW CLOSE WE CAME TO THE COUP SUCCEEDING

Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

 

This response to a caller from Rush Limbaugh came from Rush’s facebook page.  We have witnessed an incredible attempted coup against a sitting president.  Whether any of the culprits will serve jail time is up for question BUT the reputations of the FBI, Justice Department, CIA and Obama and his administration have all been shredded.  Obama wanted his legacy to survive for decades — I don’t think this is exactly what he had in mind !!!  Please share and help to keep Obama’s legacy alive !   Cheers  Nancy 

RUSH: Bill in McHenry, Illinois. You’re next. I’m glad you waited, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush, and 43 million dittos for you, sir, with prayers and thoughts always.

RUSH: Thank you. Thank you. Thank you very, very much. I appreciate that.

CALLER: You bet. Just a thought that I asked Bo about. With Attorney General Barr and Mr. Durham still hovering over the target, we’re getting more transparency in government with documents being declassified and all that. Can we sit here and predict which one of these rats is going to turn state’s evidence or start squealing on the others to save their own hides? Is there someone we can pick out of these smarmy individuals that might walk the plank?

RUSH: I have been asking a variation of that question for a long time, such as which of these people will ultimately decide they don’t want to go to jail for James Comey? But, you know, as time goes on here… (sigh) Here we go optimism/pessimism. I really… When I answer this question honestly, it makes people mad and they start calling me and dumping on me like I’m responsible for it.

This subject came up. My friend Andy McCarthy was on Fox and was asked what kind of accountability there’s gonna be for all of these people, and he said he thinks not much, that there already has been, a lot of them have lost their jobs, a lot of them have been publicly humiliated. But he’s not of the opinion that there are going to be actual trials of people. I hope he’s wrong. He’s making the statement based on experience as a federal prosecutor.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: You know, as to this business of flipping, you know, traditionally that doesn’t happen. Traditionally, leftists do not flip on each other. In fact, can anybody name for me the tell-all book from the Clinton administration? There was none. Can anybody identify for me the tell-all book from the Obama administration? There isn’t one.

They just don’t do it.

They don’t break ranks.

PANDEMICS AND POWER

Saturday, May 9th, 2020

 

Now this is really something to be worried about.  China’s gaining control of valuable assets throughout the world.  It is very likely  that China let the virus spread throughout the world for the purpose of weakening our economies.  Why else would the Communist Party stop flights from Wuhan to other cities in China while letting international flights out of Wuhan travel to all parts of the world?  When financially desperate countries can no longer service their debt to China, the Chinese Communist Party seizes control of that country’s  assets which could be an important waterway or strategic asset.  The Chinese are masters at playing chess while the rest of us are playing checkers !!!   Nancy

PANDEMICS AND POWER
China could emerge from coronavirus even stronger unless the free world frees itself from Beijing dependence
By Tyler Grant  Tyler Grant is a writer and attorney   April 23, 2020

During times of war and chaos, someone profits. As the world continues to reel from the coronavirus pandemic, businesses have shuttered, families have lost loved ones, and governments at the federal, state, and local levels have scrambled to provide adequate resources to the public. Meanwhile, after lying to international health organizations and governments around the world, China seeks to repair its public image and capitalize on a pandemic it allowed to wreak havoc on the world.

Beijing is positioned to recover faster than its competitors, including the United States. Why that is contains a lesson for America going forward, if we don’t want to be back in this position again.

In 2013, Chinese President Xi Jinping announced a plan to expand China’s global footprint in infrastructure projects abroad called the “Belt and Road Initiative.” What followed was a series of projects aimed at connecting over 65 countries with access to financing in excess of $1 trillion. The relationships span the globe, even including ambitions to control the Arctic Circle. The initiative has given China significant access to resources, economic zones, and trade routes. According to the China Africa Research Initiative at Johns Hopkins University, from “2000 to 2017, the Chinese government, banks and contractors signed $146 billion in loan commitments to African governments and their state-owned enterprises.” Foreign Policy reports, “Djibouti, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Maldives, Mongolia, Pakistan, and Montenegro … owe more than 45% of their gross domestic products to Beijing over Belt and Road projects.”

And thanks to the Chinese Communist Party’s lack of political or economic competition at home, it has been able to lend money on terms advantageous to Beijing — and only Beijing. Azeem Ibrahim, a professor at the Strategic Studies Institute at the U.S. Army War College, notes, “Beijing is becoming adept at translating outstanding debts into foreign assets.” The Belt and Road program largely relies on low-interest credit facilities collateralized by borrowing countries’ infrastructure or natural resources. Due to the poor credit of the sovereign borrower or low expectation of performance of the asset in question, many call China’s practice a form of “neo-colonialism” or “creditor imperialism” through what’s called “debt-trap diplomacy.” The Institute for Security Studies has gone so far as to call China’s behavior a “predatory system designed to ensnare countries into a straightjacket of debt servitude.”

How this works in practice: Borrowers that are unable to fulfill their loan obligations cede tremendous bargaining leverage to the Chinese when they seek to restructure the debt. If they default, the Chinese government simply seizes control of the asset. For example, the Sri Lankan government entered into a credit deal with the Chinese for a port (which reports indicate was a shaky bet, financially, from the start). When the asset didn’t perform to the terms of the contract, Sri Lanka granted China a 99-year lease on the port, including over 150,000 acres of land surrounding it. Just like that, the Chinese Communist Party gained control over a major waterway of another country.

THE CENTURY OF BIOWEAPONS

Tuesday, May 5th, 2020

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

The Century of Bioweapons

The coronavirus’s disruptive effects will inevitably inspire evil minds to action

 by Walter Russell Mead    April 28, 2020
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE: Imagine a country whose scientists produced something like the coronavirus and also a vaccine. The virus could be released, causing chaos and destruction, but one could protect one’s own people from the plague—and offer the vaccine to the world if one’s demands were met. Now imagine a jihadist group or other criminal organization with the same power.

Over time, the danger will grow as humanity develops better and more efficient ways to hack the genetic code and create organisms on demand. Biological laboratories, even sophisticated ones, are cheaper to build and easier to hide than the factories necessary to enrich uranium and develop nuclear weapons.

Covid-19 does not appear to be a genetically engineered plague unleashed on the world by supervillains—but its massive global impact shows how effective such a weapon could be. That will have consequences.

The current pandemic, we may hope, won’t live up to its full hype. It may be less destructive and even less costly than many feared. Reliable treatments may soon become available, and societies will figure out ways to protect the most vulnerable while allowing the normal business of life to resume. Covid-19 will presumably at some point become through antiviral therapies a manageable hazard, like HIV/AIDS before it, or be conquered by a vaccine.

Yet less than three months after the first known Covid-19 death in the U.S., more Americans have died of this disease than fell in battle during the Vietnam War. It has disrupted more lives, thrown more people out of work, and at least temporarily closed more businesses than the Great Depression.

And of course the U.S. is not alone. Much of the world has been shut down; global trade has been upended in ways not seen since World War II, and the spreading economic and geopolitical fallout from the pandemic is already on course to dwarf the consequences of the 2008-09 financial crisis.

VIDEO – ARREST OF LOCKDOWN PROTESTERS IN RALEIGH, NC APRIL 28, 2020

Wednesday, April 29th, 2020

 

This video was filmed at a peaceful demonstration to open up our state from the lockdown in Raleigh, NC, on Tuesday, April 28, 2020 .       Nancy

 

 

This was a peaceful protest on public property (the sidewalk) owned by the people who were arrested by the governor’s goons.
This shocking video was still viewable as 11pm on Tuesday, 4/28…..

 

Thanks to Gadi Adelman, a counter terrorism expert, who was attending the protest in Raleigh yesterday, for providing us with this detailed accounting of what really happened.  Nancy

Nancy good morning.
Dee and I were at the rally both yesterday and last week. To answer your question the actual charges on all four were “resisting a public officer and violation of an executive order”.
Personally I’d like to know how stepping on the sidewalk is a violation of the executive order because that is what they were arrested for.
Last week, there were signs up to stay off the sidewalk, those signs were not there yesterday. Also one of the four that was arrested was charged with “damaging property” he had been pulling on the Northeast gate of the executive mansion which Dee and I both saw while we were there but from what I saw I doubt that it was broken due to that.
When I spotted him doing that I pointed it out to Dee and said,  “we don’t need to be doing stuff like that”. As I was about to walk over and tell him to stop someone else got there before me and pulled him away. it was well over an hour later that he was arrested for that while standing on the sidewalk.
Nowhere in the governor’s executive order does it say that you cannot walk on the sidewalk, I’m sure these charges will all be tossed out and they were just making an example of them.
The whole reason that this started was because there were no flags flying in front of the executive Mansion. Dee and I also noticed there were no flags last week.
I walked up to the sidewalk and spoke to one of the police officers, I asked him nicely, calmly, and quietly can you tell me why the flags are not up on the flagpole? He refused to answer me, no matter what I asked him he just stood there, nothing was ever said by any of these police officers other than “do not step on the sidewalk” . At one point I finally said to him “I guess you’re not allowed to answer”  and he smirked at me.
Aside from the one idiot who pulled on the gates we left downtown cleaner than when we arrived, it was peaceful and there were no threats or anything other than everyone that I saw thanking the police for being there and for their service.

Also, the reason the flags were not being flown (so I found out later) is because the Gov. said they were damaged during protests in the past. What he didn’t bother to say was that ALL those protests were by either, Black Lives Matter, Antifa and Illegals, NEVER any conservative group. ALL the other State buildings had their flags up.

WUHAN VIRUS TIMELINE

Wuhan Virus

China’s propaganda pandemic in an expanding timeline

Latest update: April 15, 2020, 03:25 Washington DC time.

All official Chinese government propaganda is the official voice of the ruling Chinese Communist Party (CCP). By following the propaganda lines with regime actions in chronological order, we can trace how the Xi Jinping regime responded to the coronavirus outbreak and weaponized it to attack the United States and divide its leaders.

We can then push back against Chinese propaganda, break through the regime’s disinformation and censorship inside China and here at home, and devise ways to hold the Communist Party responsible for the pandemic.

The following timeline by Dr J Michael Waller, our Senior Analyst for Strategy, is updated daily.

COVID-19 AND THE APPROACHING NEW NORMAL

COVID-19 and the approaching new normal

By Terry Mudge

The COVID-19 mantra, “we’re all in this together,” is echoed in advertisements, by conservatives, liberals, and public service announcements.  The new heroes are fast food and grocery workers.  Being a good citizen is obeying stay-at-home mandates for the safety of others.  Feel-good stories of people working together contrast the stories of hospitals as war zones.  The daily COVID-19 death toll resurrects memories for us older folks of the Vietnam War’s daily casualty counts.

Can Americans be so naïve they don’t see this crisis for what it is?  COVID-19 is being used to usher in a new morality in alignment with a globalist population monitor-and-control system under the guise of public safety.  Let’s look at the facts globalists don’t want Americans to add together.

·         Economies across the globe are significantly compromised.

·         Business-owners have suffered the loss of property without due process or compensation.

·         Stay-at-home mandates, effectively jailing people in their homes.

·         No criteria established to measure the consequences of stay-at-home mandates or the shutdown of the economy.

·         No right of assembly.

·         Churches closed.

·         Courts have been closed so there can be no redress of grievances.

·         No guidelines have been established for return to normal.

·         Misinformation: Models are consistently wrong, and data used for assumptions are not explained to the public.

·         A shift of governance to bureaucrats — “experts” who contradict one another and themselves almost daily.

THE REAL REASON ITALY SUCCUMBED TO THE CORONA VIRUS

Friday, April 10th, 2020

 

Many thanks to Milada Williamson for sharing this information on how the virus was able to spread so easily in Italy.  (not washing their hands enough is not the reason !!!)   It is a lesson that should be remembered.  Nancy

ITALY’S COMMUNIST RECIPE FOR DISASTER

Published March 24, 2020 | By Giacomino Nicolazzo

Giacomino Nicolazzo is one of Italy’s most beloved writers.  Born and raised in Central Pennsylvania, he lives in a small village in Lombardy where he writes his books.

 Montecalvo, Lombardy, Italy. As I sit here in my involuntary isolation, it was just reported that overnight 743 more people died and 5.249 new cases have been reported. This brings the total cases of infection to 69,176 and the body count to 6,820. We take relief in knowing that 8,326 people have recovered so far. (Numbers as of 3/24, 8:30pm in Italy.)

Most towns here in Italy, from the upper reaches of the Alps to the ancient shores of Sicilia and Sardenia, while not deserted, are closer to being ghost towns than the bustling centers of tourism, business and daily life they were just a few weeks ago.

Stores and shops have been shuttered. Restaurants and coffee shops no longer serve customers. Schools, universities, sporting arenas…even our museums and theaters…all closed. Even the Vatican City has closed its gates and armed patrols monitor the 20 foot tall walls that protect it!

Streets and roads are now empty for as far as the eye can see. Normally they would be filled with crazed Italian drivers in tiny cars and scooters (the ones that sound like demonic insects) darting here and there, reaching the limits of centrifugal force on our roundabouts. In the piazze of our towns and cities, there are now officially more pigeons than people.

Many of us know someone who has been infected and recovered. Some of us know someone who did not recover…now they are dead. But everyone knows someone who has been affected by this microscopic monster in one way or another.

Sixty million of us are in lockdown…it is like a war zone here. We are being held prisoner in our own homes by an unseen enemy that sneaked in unnoticed…by most of us. As you will read in just a few more minutes, there were those who knew something like this was coming…or at least they should have.

So who is to blame? With all this craziness swirling like a whirlpool at our feet, I just had to find the blame answer. And so I have spent my free time (of which I have a lot in these days) digging and researching. I was literally shocked to discover how this has come to be.

I am not going to bore you with talk of Patient ‘0’ who spread it to Patient ‘1’ and how mathematics efficiently explains the rapid expansion of infection. No…I am going to tell you how (as I see it) the virus came to Italy.

It has everything to do with communists. Allow me to explain.
