Dear KAG: 20200813 Open Thread

Quick author note: many thanks to our host, Wolfm00n, for covering in emergency circumstances. My neck of the woods was sans electricity (we say “power” in these parts, Coothie) about 38 hours following a tree branch falling on the 220 line (it took four splices to put it back together). At this time, the ice maker is productive, and the dogs are no longer panting for being way too hot in the middle of the night. Here’s to a decent night’s sleep…last night I was longing for an old fashioned sleeping porch.

Look out, y’all. I found a new Youtube parody channel:

More of this patriot’s work appears at the bottom of this post. In the meantime…..

All this isolation and idle hands is just inviting…well, this:

Yeah, the virus is smaller than anything coming out of an aerosol can. Some of us actually did pass physics a long time ago. Really, this guy just wanted to play with fire.

Anyway, here is the anti-COVID 19 narrative sing along song.

Bop, bop, bop

Feel free to hold hands, and touch. But, please, wash them afterwards.

In the meantime, the short and sweet version of “THE RULES” is here borrowed from Tuesday:

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone.

Since it is almost the weekend, the reminders are in place to not swing from the chandeliers, wash your hands and face, and be nice to the liberals whether they deserve it or not. Making your bed, OTOH, is optional.

From Psalm 78 (77 in the Douay-Rheims)

[52] And he took away his own people as sheep: and guided them in the wilderness like a flock. [53] And he brought them out in hope, and they feared not: and the sea overwhelmed their enemies. [54] And he brought them into the mountain of his sanctuary: the mountain which his right hand had purchased. And he cast out the Gentiles before them: and by lot divided to them their land by a line of distribution. [55] And he made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tabernacles.

[56] Yet they tempted, and provoked the most high God: and they kept not his testimonies. [57] And they turned away, and kept not the covenant: even like their fathers they were turned aside as a crooked bow. [58] They provoked him to anger on their hills: and moved him to jealousy with their graven things. [59] God heard, and despised them, and he reduced Israel exceedingly as it were to nothing. [60] And he put away the tabernacle of Silo, his tabernacle where he dwelt among men.

[61] And he delivered their strength into captivity: and their beauty into the hands of the enemy. [62] And he shut up his people under the sword: and he despised his inheritance. [63] Fire consumed their young men: and their maidens were not lamented. [64] Their priests fell by the sword: and their widows did not mourn. [65] And the Lord was awaked as one out of sleep, and like a mighty man that hath been surfeited with wine.

[66] And he smote his enemies on the hinder parts: he put them to an everlasting reproach. [67] And he rejected the tabernacle of Joseph: and chose not the tribe of Ephraim: [68] But he chose the tribe of Juda, mount Sion which he loved. [69] And he built his sanctuary as of unicorns, in the land which he founded for ever. [70] And he chose his servant David, and took him from the flocks of sheep: he brought him from following the ewes great with young,

    A2 posted this site on CTH earlier. Sometime after the 2016 election, I didn’t visit CTH too much, but when it was time for 2018 mid-terms, I kept looking for flep (fleporeblog) for his infectious optimism with his numbers. Nowhere to be found, along with many regular posters! I wondered what happened and where you all went. I’m glad to find you again, and I hope all is well with everyone!

Welcome, but if you post here, I advise you (1) do not engage in discussion of CTH or Sundance here, and (2) do not engage in discussion of me, Flep, the posters here, or this place, while you are at CTH. Otherwise, you are apt to be banned at CTH. Just a fair warning. If you are banned there, you are welcome here, but if you value posting at CTH, stay out of discussions of it elsewhere.

There’s about 45 “posts” there that are actually “pullovers”. I suspect your comment got nicked by some automatic whizamagig and she’ll get to it once her own flood of data gets sorted.

    Taiwan not required to pay Qing Dynasty bonds, China is: former premier
    Post 10269661 • on 8kun from https://wearethene.ws/notable/129756

    China should pay US$1 trillion in Qing Dynasty bonds, not Taiwan: former premier

    TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – As U.S. President Donald Trump mulls reviving claims on US$1 trillion worth of Chinese bonds dating back to the Qing Dynasty, Taiwan’s former Premier Sean Chen (陳冲) says that Taiwan is not legally obligated to repay the debts, but Communist China is.

    In the latest twist in the increasingly bitter U.S.-China trade war, Trump met with a group of bondholders called the American Bondholders Foundation (ABF) who are requesting that the president push China into repaying debt accrued during the Qing Dynasty to build a railroad. The Hukuang Railways Sinking Fund Gold Loan of 1911 was issued bonds that year by a consortium of banks in London, Berlin, Paris, and New York to fund the Hukuang Railway from Hunan to modern-day Guangzhou.

    The group, led by Tennessee cattle rancher Jonna Bianco, claims that as the communist Chinese government in Beijing claims sovereignty over the whole of “China,” it is the inheritor of the debt issued in 1911. “The People’s Republic of China dismisses its defaulted sovereign obligations as pre-1949 Republic of China debt, but doing so contradicts the PRC’s claim that it is sole successor to the ROC’s sovereign rights,” Bianco said to Bloomberg in late August.

    The bonds amount to US$1 trillion when factoring in their terms, inflation, and interest. The Trump administration is delving into the possibility of forcing China to repay the debt as a term of the trade negotiations or swapping it for the US$1 trillion in U.S. treasury securities it currently holds.

    Chinese state-run mouthpiece the Global Times claimed that when the Communist regime took power in Beijing on October 1, 1949, the government abolished all unequal treaties and canceled foreign debts. It claimed that it does not have any obligation to pay back any outstanding debts after Chiang Kai-shek (蔣介石) fled to Taiwan in 1949 with a number of loans in hand.

    On Sept. 9, Chen said that according to Article 63 of the Act Governing Relations between the People of the Taiwan Area and the Mainland Area (臺灣地區與大陸地區人民關係條例), “The following debts shall not be repaid prior to national unification: Outstanding foreign currency bonds issued in the Mainland prior to 1949 and the short-term Gold Bonds of 1949. Various debts owed by any government bank as well as any other financial institution accepting deposits before their retreat from the Mainland.”

    As for ownership of the debts, he gave the example of bonds issued by Farmers Bank of China (農民銀行), which was originally operated by the ROC government in China. However, in 1949, the bank’s assets were seized by the Chinese Communist Party and incorporated into the People’s Bank of China, which later became the Agricultural Bank of China.

    Chen said all debts owed to bondholders by the former Farmers Bank of China are now held by the Agricultural Bank of China, reported CNA. Therefore, the Chinese government is ultimately responsible for these bonds

    Chen emphasized that the Taiwan government does not bear the assets of the Republic of China before 1949 and has no reason, legal or based on principal, to repay debts incurred prior to that year. He concluded that the government should revaluate why Article 63 retains any debts to be repaid upon “unification,” according to the report.

    1. Scripture readings are always from the Daily Mass readings of the day. In practice this one would look like this:

      R. (see 7b) Do not forget the works of the Lord!
      They tempted and rebelled against God the Most High,
      and kept not his decrees.
      They turned back and were faithless like their fathers;
      they recoiled like a treacherous bow.

      R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
      They angered him with their high places
      and with their idols roused his jealousy.
      God heard and was enraged
      and utterly rejected Israel.

      R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!
      And he surrendered his strength into captivity,
      his glory in the hands of the foe.
      He abandoned his people to the sword
      and was enraged against his inheritance.
      R. Do not forget the works of the Lord!

So Johnson isn’t being honest when he says Senators are blocking issuing the subpoenas. While privately, they may not like it, they did write the authorization letter.

          1. Yes, I saw that on social media yesterday, but last night the authorizing letter was posted – it was authorized – so the delay is behind the scenes pressure being put on Johnson. But Johnson blaming Romney exclusively isn’t quite honest. He’s playing a role in this.

      1. Well, MY PRESIDENT appointed Bill Barr, who the fuck appointed you, Sundance?

        That’s MY PROOF.

        Sundance and his ego are really started to piss me off.

        And I think he was drunk-tweeting like a jilted teenage girl.

        Liked by 5 people

        1. BINGO. Did it EVER occur to anyone that Sundance is THE head fake? Seems AWFULLY like a DIS info campaign to me. We KNOW that Barr IS and HAS been doing things. It was BARR himself that coined the phrase “political” spying” and he did it in his hearing last year, when he REVEALED that Durham had been HIDDEN in the Huber investigation, for OVER a year. A LOT sure got exposed since then.

          Did it EVER occur to Sundance that HE is being played? That the Cabal is USING him and his platform to sow the seeds of dissent and dis info to DISCREDIT both Durham AND Barr before the big reveal, which we KNOW is coming?

          What BETTER way to try to discredit Durham, who has had ZERO leaks, than to label him as a head fake, thereby discrediting anything he says BEFORE he even says it.

          Sigh, Sundance’s EGO is in the way of his good sense, AGAIN. Notice please his PUSHBACK against ANY dissent. Notice too where HJE assumes an AWFUL lot of POWER in trying to insinuate that HE is in negotiations with Barr and or Durham on this and THEY asked HIM to delay.

          Talk about your Woodward and Bernstein complex.

          I am NOW convinced that it is SUNDANCE that has been compromised, just like Drudge. Think, WHY would ANYONE try to jeopardize a FOUR year take down of the Cabal, by trying to throw SHADE on the coming haymaker, by stating, it was ALL a feint. Does NOT make sense for someone who is SUPPOSED top be MAGA. It DOES make sense for someone trying to DISCREDIT that info AND it’s SOURCE (Durham).

          Now, ASK yourself, WHO benefits from the discrediting of Barr and or Durham? That’s right the CABAL.

          Now FURTHER ask yourself, IF Barr were swamp, as Sundance intimates, WHY did the dems over the last several months, and ESPECIALLY that FARCE of a hearing, try EVERYTHING to trash or discredit Barr, to even threaten to impeach him or to try and get him to resign?

          WHY would they do that if he were “secretly” on team Cabal? Have they EVER attacked Wray? Rosenstein? How about even Sessions? NO, because they were HELPING the Cabal either directly or INdirectly. They SURE AS HELL went after Grinnell and Ratcliffe haven’t they?

          IF Durham was SO much useless, and a feint or ruse, as the almighty one (in his own mind) suggests, WHY was the ONLY question that the dems let Barr answer unfettered about DURHAM and WHEN his report was to come out? Did they EVER ask about Horrowitz? Huber? NOPE, but they SURE as HELL were asking SPECIFICALLY about Durham. One would THINK if Durham was SO useless, they would HAPPILY let him stay obscure and in the background. HAPPY with the status quo. But they DIDN’T leave him in the background DID they, they were SCARED. Just as scared as when Barr said he was CONCERNED about POLITICAL spying OF the Obama admin ON Trump. WATCH the tape, LOOK at their faces as Barr said that, it was SHOCK and FEAR, they were NOT ready for that.

          In closing, IMHO Sundance is either A full of SHIT, and is doing this for clicks, and WILL keep on delaying his “big reveal” with excuses of “negotiations” with Barr, OR he is DIS info and is being USED by team Cabal to DEMORALIZE his followers ANMD discredit both Barr and Durham.

          I think it is the FORMER, because lets face it, IF Barr wanted to silence Sundance, and he was Cabal, as is the INFERENCE of Sundance, he could EASILY have him deplatformed, twitter does it ALL the time.

          IF he JEOPARDIZED a four year investigation and setup of the Cabal, a MAGA Barr could do the SAME, and have Sundance ENJOINED. It DOES happen, ask Assange.

          I told everyone that Sundance was playing a DANGEROUS game of credibility chicken, I was RIGHT, he WILL lose this one, AND his following. He has a self imposed ONE day deadline. See that is why it is so DANGEROUS to play credibility chicken, you either have to PUT up or SHUT up.

          I think he has NOTHING to actually PROVE of what he speaks, just like the rest of us, it is speculation, but he defiantly says it is NOT speculation, his Woodward moment, he has a “deep throat” and proof. My question is THIS, WHY would he even BOTHER to try and negotiate IF his motives were “pure” and as he claims, “want’s action” He would not NEED to try and portray himself AS the hero and in negotiations, he would REVEAL what he HAD, and either BECOME the hero, OR the GOAT.

          Ah, you see the game of credibility chicken laid BARE.

    1. Sundance: “John Durham is a head fake…”

      So what? So what if it is?

      Does it not ever occur to Sd that this drama he is doing, is doing more harm than good?

      I have thought all along that the Indictments were probably being delayed until we had more Trump Judges on the bench.
      A prosecution…no matter how good it is…would be wasted if brought before a corrupt leftist judge!

      So are we there yet?
      I dunno.

      I think that AG Barr knows a lot more than Sd does.
      And yet Sd has taken it upon himself to try to ‘force’ Barr into doing something, to fit his…Sd’s…own timetable.

      The Prize is to win the reelection of PDJT…and also win back the House while keeping the Senate.

      Some Indictments would be great to see…
      But would they help us to Win the Prize?

      We need every seat we can get, in both the House and the Senate.

      What if the Indictments expose dirt on the R’s — and resulted in our losing the Senate?
      Can Sd guarantee that that won’t happen?

      Our President needs the help of an R-controlled congress, both houses.
      If delaying the Indictments until after the election will accomplish this…then I am all for the delay.

              1. That’s the problem with our system. Many do not understand how it works. Take Miss Lindsey, the RINO. The time to get rid of him was his primary a few months ago. Did anyone worthy run against him then, was there a massive campaign to inform everyone that he’s a RINO and needs to be replaced? I dunno, probably not. But he won and now we’re stuck with him as the only R choice. Race is pretty tight I hear, so We MUST re-elect him to keep the Senate seat. Hold your nose SC and do it. But wait, here comes Some Dude to the rescue with a big BOMB, to tell the base it was all a lie and the R’s knew it. Pizzes off and totally disgusts the electorate. People will want him gone, but at this point it’s too late. Hold my nose again?, Hell NO! Joe, the base R voter cannot morally endorse the RINO after the all the recent lies he’s been fed, especially when he had his hopes so high for justice. Many will just not vote due to the stench. That furthers the advantage of Dems allowing them to gain the seat. Wash, Rinse, Repeat. That’s our damn system. And the politicians know it, and they keep getting away with their crap.

              2. Actually, it’s my understanding that when it comes to certain seats, the candidate is picked by the national party and funded by the national party. I assume it’s a uniparty decision for optics, but party bigwigs have been known to call candidates before the primaries and tell them to drop out because they wouldn’t be funded anyway.

        3. See it makes NO sense. Barr could and WOULD simply silence SD via legal means IF he was about to “reveal” anything, jeopardizing a FOUR year investigation, ESPECIALLY at the END. Why would BARR negotiate with some random internet blogger? He WOULD NOT. Fox or one of the big papers or networks MAYBE, but not a blogger, not even Drudge.

          Barr, IF Sundance had the goods, would not NEED to negotiate, he COULD simply ask Sundance to withhold OR face obstruction of justice charges for jeopardizing a federal investigation. It is THAT big.

          Think Wolfe, HOW would a simple internet blogger receive such info, and NOT the Cabal, who are literally EVERYWHERE in the Govt, and yet THEY do not have it, UNLESS, Sundance is being USED by the Cabal as a dis info agent to discredit Barr and Durham BEFORE the reveal. Akom’s Razor.

          1. However wrong or right he is, they’re just letting it happen. Now it’s possible that they may FORCE him to go to 1 week if they’re serious, in which case they come back to him and say “here is your NSL – 1 week”.

            IMO what he is doing WILL, however reframe expectations and assessments.

            I think the bad guys know whatever it is, and they would prefer for the full, true story to REMAIN HIDDEN and be out of the sheep’s minds. In fact, I think many of them, both “bad” and “informants”, have played along with things.

            The good guys are fine with things as they are, but are OK with “You have more than you know” slipping out to general understanding.

            Whatever. We will see the goods. I’m thinking strongly about keeping SD stuff outside the open threads.

              I agree with you that if it were going to cause major damage, Barr could/would squash Sundance like a bug. That’s part of my reasoning that he doesn’t have anything real big. I’m willing to be wrong, otherwise I would keep my mouth shut and not predict a thing.

                I suspect SD’s stuff is “proof of validity of an interpretation”. Those tend to be nothingburgers in terms of discrete scandalous facts, but they get everybody stirred up. because they insinuate new hat colors and shift viewpoints. Clearly those mean little to Barr. But layer onto that SD’s discovery of an investigatory name that is likely only known to the deepest literal white hats and black hats, and the public is blind on, and – well – MORE STIR!!!

It is a wound to the Body of Christ for those of us who have interfaced Only Online & only access each other via the CTH Prayer Request Pages. If I read over there I can, of course, pray for the needs shared, but I cannot directly encourage others, nor can I ask for their prayer support. I think that they even banned Josiah from CTH & he mostly ever popped in on a rare occasion at the Prayer Request page to say “hi” & thanked people for praying for him…hmmm…

If he recused wisely but alone, or as a planned move with Trump, or stupidly because he was fooled by Tashina Gauhar working for Holder, I still think pretty much the same of Sessions. Very likely the same about Barr. I trust Barr, even if he is engaging in “institutional repair as opposed to destruction”, because that’s his call. I can generally see an SD viewpoint from a less blame-casting position, because I’m more comfortable with the realities of controlled opposition, IMO.

      Trump: John Durham has uncovered ‘breathtaking’ evidence of spying
      https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/trump-john-durham-has-uncovered-breathtaking-evidence-of-spying
      August 05, 2020. FTA:

      U.S. Attorney John Durham has uncovered “breathtaking” evidence about “corrupt” origins of the Russia investigation, according to President Trump.

      He told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Tuesday that he believes that the federal prosecutor is conducting a criminal inquiry into the Russia investigation that will show members of the Obama administration maliciously targeted him and his campaign.

      “We caught them spying. Now it’s up to our attorney general. As you know, I wanted them to do it. I didn’t want to get overly involved. Maybe I should, maybe I shouldn’t, but I do hear it’s breathtaking what they’ve found,” Trump said. “That’s all I can say, breathtaking.”
      __________

      ^^^^So was Pres. Trump lying? Or is he being lied to, and duped?

      AG Barr has also commented about Durham’s investigation and its timeline of results. He has said he doesn’t feel constrained to wait until after the election to reveal results. So is Barr lying to us, or has he been duped?

      If — and it’s a big IF — there is anything to what SD says, then, as others have pointed out, it would reflect negatively on Pres. Trump, AG Barr, and Republicans, right before the election. That is, unless there is such a major coup within our government that the president and AG have been misled about the very existence of an investigation (or at least the intent of purported investigators). If that were the case, we would be in a crisis the likes of which this country has never seen.

      Alternatively, if the entire Durham investigation is a head fake for something more important and effective, to keep the Deep State distracted, then that fact should under no circumstance be revealed. To do so would be obstruction of justice, with far-reaching ramifications that could do irreversible damage.

          What’s telling to me is the other side’s reaction to Durham. If he really is a shiny red ball, why is he making them other side nervous other than they have no idea what he has so they can plan for a counter?

          What if the whole purpose of the Durham narrative is to keep the rats off kilter in that way?

          We simply don’t know, and any reporting entity using unnamed sources, be it the NYT, Washington Compost, or anyone else, should be watched, but not necessarily taken as passing on valid information.

    …………..From the article: [emphasis mine]

    Professor Giuseppe Tritto, an internationally known expert in biotechnology and nanotechnology, says that the China Virus definitely wasn’t a freak of nature that happened to cross the species barrier from bat to man.

    It will not be possible for the Dr. Fauci’s of the world to dismiss Professor Giuseppe Tritto as a crank. Not only is he an internationally known expert in biotechnology and nanotechnology who has had a stellar academic career, but he is also the president of the World Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Technologies (WABT), an institution founded under the aegis of UNESCO in 1997.

    In other words, he is a man of considerable stature in the global scientific community. Equally important, one of the goals of WABT is to analyze the effect of biotechnologies—like genetic engineering—on humanity.

    In his new book, this world-class scientist does exactly that. And what he says is that the China Virus definitely wasn’t a freak of nature that happened to cross the species barrier from bat to man. It was genetically engineered in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s P4 (high-containment) lab in a program supervised by the Chinese military.

    Hey Q-Treepers, I’m finally providing my “soon” update about Josiah, but frankly I’m a bit out of gas, so if you want greater/other details, please see my 8-13 update at the Caring Bridge site above…

    Last weekend we noticed J had more jaundice symptoms & we interfaced with the University of Michigan Hospital’s On-Call Doctor covering GI/Liver Transplant. He spoke w/ J’s doctor & then got back with us. No med changes until labs. We got labs on Tuesday.

    Yesterday I spoke with the Liver Transplant Nurse & Most of J’s Labs Have NOT Improved, some are stable-ish & at least one is Slightly better. The one measuring bile/jaundice was 12 before the hospital, 7 after at some point, & now is at 10.5, which is not good.

    They are adding a new med (which we’re having some challenges getting) Ursodiol to help empty the bile ducts, iirc, though per the pharmacy it’s often used for kidney stones. They want him taking 900 mg/day of it. He got 900 mg last night & has 300 mg for tomorrow morning. The pharmacy was supposed to get more in Wed but it didn’t come but they think it’ll come Thursday, so hopefully he’ll be able to get the full dosage today too.

    They want him to get labs again on Friday & go to twice a week labs for some period of time that likely depends on the liver numbers. They’re sending new “standing orders” so we don’t have hassles at the lab…My daughter is currently going on the clock as J’s “staff” & doing this activity with him, since the hospitalization.

    Depending on how the liver numbers look they might get another Liver Biopsy. It’s not clear if that is based on Friday’s labs or next week’s 1st labs probably on Tuesday, unless J decides to skip/go late to work & get labs Mon.

    At least the theoretical biopsy should be able to be done out-patient. If it turns out to be like what just happened at the hospital, a punch or core biopsy, then we know what to expect & can talk J through it. If it’s like his old liver biopsy, laparoscopic surgery, we can prepare him for that too….

    Everything is still relatively in flux. They may decide to pause the weaning down on the Prednisone. He started 40 mg/day this Tuesday & was due to go to 30 mg/day this coming Tuesday. They may also tweak his Prograf dosage depending on the Tacro (tacrolimum, Prograf generic) level, which wasn’t back as of our conversation…

    Josiah has been feeling some diminished energy & now wishes he weren’t going in to work this morning. I’m coaching him on making that decision when he wakes up…for when he thought about it last night he thought it was “too late” to call off his morning shift.

    He spent some time at his fiancee Rose’s house the other day. The prior time they’d seen him they were quite worried about how low-key he was (they’re used to seeing him in a more hyper state). They also thought he’d lost weight. His appetite has been a little lessor but he’s still eating reasonably well. Rose’s family laid hands on him to pray for him & they are continuing to lift him to the Throne of Grace!

    My husband Michael & I are supposed to go out for dinner with Rose’s parents tomorrow night. We’ve not yet met her dad, who is on the autism spectrum, but know her mom a bit from Special Olympics events. We’re supposed to get to know each other & potentially share our visions for our kids’ wedding & marriage.

    It is rather interesting times around here. The liver stuff is unsettling though Josiah seems relatively OK overall. The nurse said that people can feel completely fine & have significant liver problems.

    We’d really appreciate your ongoing prayers for Josiah’s complete healing, body, mind, soul, & spirit. Sometimes all the uncertainty is overwhelming to him & it is draining, to some degree, to the rest of us…

    Thank you for your prior prayers & if someone wouldn’t mind refreshing the prayer request for Josiah at the Prayer Wall at Marica’s (I think) I’d really appreciate it. My special son is a Massive Prayer Magnet & has been since even before he was born! God is good but these challenging times are tough to live through, they’re so much more enjoyable in the rear-view mirror (as we all know)!

      1. It looks to me like you might be confusing two different Mongolias.

        “Outer Mongolia” is the independent country of Mongolia, which has a border with Russia. During the Soviet era, it was a satellite of the USSR. Today it’s independent and (last I heard at least) pursuing capitalism.

        “Inner Mongolia” is part of China, it’s along the southern border of (Outer) Mongolia, and has no border with Russia. (If you look closely at Chinese money, some of the inscriptions are in the traditional Mongolian script (vertical lines with curlicues and squiggles coming off of them); part of the PRC’s “schtick” is that they are a union of multiple “peoples” and Mongolians are one of them.

        China is probably “sealing off cities” in Inner Mongolia, while the border between Russia and Mongolia you reference, is the “other” Mongolia. (The independent Mongolia adopted the Cyrillic script for Mongolian, sometime while they were a satellite state.)

    USDA finds noxious weeds, bug larva in unsolicited seeds from China

    ……………From the article: [emphasis mine]

    ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 13 (UPI) — The U.S. Department of Agriculture has discovered noxious weeds and a bug larva in mystery seeds that were sent unsolicited from China to thousands of residents across the United States.

    The weeds and the bug already are found in this country, although they are considered undesirable.

    The weeds can displace native plants and deplete nutrients for native plants. The bug larva was a type of leaf beetle that consumes and destroys leaves of native plants, agriculture officials said. […]

    “We have received more than 9,000 emails from private citizens across the country who report receiving unsolicited seeds, and we have collected 925 packages,” Osama El-Lissy, the USDA’s deputy administrator for plant protection and quarantine, said Wednesday in department audio recordings.

    Most of the seeds examined were common garden seeds, like marigolds and herbs. The weeds were a variety of water spinach and dodder, a stringy vine that can choke out large native plants and even large areas of native woodland, the USDA said.

    The agency said it continues to examine Chinese seeds at plant inspection stations situated in every state, where any problems would be contained. Eventually, the seeds will be incinerated.

    Agriculture officials are treating the seeds so carefully because biologists have warned that any of them might carry invasive pests, fungus or even plant viruses that could devastate entire crops.

    ………………End quote, more at link.

    They’ve gotten 9,000 reports from people who have received these mystery packets…
    And they have only examined 925 of them so far?

    Uh yeah…I don’t think this was some innocent “ooops” from China.

    I give this the full side-eye:

    Diego Garcia is one of just a handful of locations that are equipped to accommodate B-2s & features 4 climate-controlled clamshell hangars known as B-2 Shelter Systems (BS22s) for the stealth bombers. The base is a hub for long-range bomber missions to the Middle East and Asia.
