Analysis: The Epoch Times is reporting that “seized human hair products from China provide evidence of persecution.” U.S. Customs seized 13 tons of human hair products in the first week of July.
Think about how much hair on your head weighs and how much it would take to weigh 13 tons or 26,000 pounds. Further consider, as if you were a mother of four traveling as a fashion clothing agent and frequent visitor to China. Unexpectedly arrested in your hotel, accused of “abetting terrorist activities” what if you were then housed in a six-meter square space for 462 days and given unknown drugs. Entering the camp you were forced to stick your head through a hole in the wall while an unseen hand sheared your head with a clipper–as one woman said, “like an animal,”
This is the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in China today that the NBA (including the Oklahoma Thunder), Apple and Nike use for profit while preaching “social justice” to America. Slave labor provided – as many as needed – by the CCP.
Editorial: “Black Lives Matter” was painted on a Tulsa street without a permit and when asked by Police, Ryan Rhoades, the acknowledged artist/activist lied. Bragging later to the newspaper he was quoted saying, “(The Officer) thought we were just doing chalk and told us we were fine… He just saw the chalk; we had the paint hidden.”
So why should taxpayers pay for the clean up? Criminal acts of Rhoades and company must at least include lying to law enforcement and defacing public property. They should pay to have it removed – start a GoFundMe page, have a car wash or pass the hat at their next political rally, but Tulsa taxpayers should not pay the bill.
Analysis: While some activists escalate public panic in Tulsa over Covid-19 (China Virus or Kung Flu) a contrary experience in Sweden is gaining more support. In short, “Sweden avoided a hard lockdown. The nation of 10 million people instead opted for a strategy that sought to encourage social distancing through public information, cooperation, and individual responsibility. Restaurants, bars, public pools, libraries, and most schools remained open with certain capacity limits” the Foundation for Economic Education writes noting, “Sweden’s top epidemiologist Anders Tegnell says a massive decline in COVID-19 cases shows ‘the Swedish strategy is working.’”
20,000 more Americans have died while the FDA has delayed since July 1 a new emergency use approval for outpatient use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) for COVID-19.
On July, 1 Henry Ford Hospital physicians and researchers in Detroit filed an urgent request to FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn for a new outpatient Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for FDA approval of HCQ to be used in early treatment for COVID-19. Baylor Scott & White Heart and Vascular Institute in Dallas, issued an urgent appeal supporting the Henry Ford EUA application, based on their clinical study of prophylactic use of HCQ in their own medical workers. Baylor cardiologists emphasized there were no adverse cardiac outcomes in their own or the Ford study.
The COVID-19 lockdown has its benefits: a chapter a day of the unabridged version of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago, a study in fear and redefined “normal” values, among many other lessons.
Lately I’ve seen face coverings stenciled with “I can’t breathe.” The beauty of the statement is its dual meaning. It can be a nod to George Floyd, an arrestee who apparently suffocated at the hands of a rogue law enforcement officer or it can be a statement of the wearer’s condition behind the mask. More generally, it can be a statement about the suffocation of society as a whole.
