Then we better be pretty quick in setting up manufacturing facilities for the $75 billion of manufactured goods we get from there and find another market for the $25 billion of raw materials and agricultural goods we send their way.

It won't be Canada that does the reckoning.

Not enough pride

Yes. Ordinarily they would go through some charade to maintain a pretence of substance to save "face" (ie. wait a few weeks), but we know they were full of shit, they knew we knew they were full of shit, and they lack the spine to even pretend there was a matter of substance involved.

... Although some Western media outlets and politicians claimed the releasing of the two Canadians was an example of "hostage diplomacy," experts said Meng was indeed a "political hostage" taken by the US and Canada, noting that mounting evidence throughout the legal proceedings during Meng's fight against extradition showed she was the victim of political prosecution.

"In Spavor's case, imposing the order of deportation means he may not serve his jailtime in China but will be deported back to Canada. It leaves certain room for indictment while unleashing a gesture of goodwill," Qin Qianhong, a constitutional law professor at Wuhan University, told the Global Times.

Kovrig and Spavor were prosecuted by the Prosecutor General's Office in China for suspected crimes undermining China's national security in June 2020.

Kovrig was accused of using an ordinary passport and business visa to enter China to steal sensitive information and intelligence through contacts in China since 2017, while Spavor was accused of being a key source of intelligence for Kovrig.

Spavor was found to have taken photos and videos of Chinese military equipment on multiple occasions and illegally provided some of those photos to people outside China, which have been identified as second-tier state secrets, a source close to the matter told the Global Times on September 1 ...

I wonder if running concentration camps would disqualify a country from being able to join a trade pact?

The great Chinese layoff, the potential for 45 million unemployed, combined with the impending collapse of evergrande. The Chinese economy is in for hurt, could this lead to the demise of the ccp?

No lights, no power, no water....


California Current Power Outages



If only we knew how to make power when we needed it. By burning stuff perhaps? Stuff we knew where it was and we could get it when we needed it?

On the other hand this has to be the answer to the conspiracy theory that Green Energy is a Chinese plot. Apparently they believe this stuff as well. Go figure.
