President Trump 1 - W.H.O. 0

President Trump terminates the U.S.A.'s relationship with the World Health Organization over China.  Deservedly so.  But while this is a good step, the real issue is China and their mobster tactics on the world stage.  Hopefully there is more to come.

Kayleigh McEnany 1 - Jim Acosta 0

Jim Acosta, making it personal, gets schooled by Kayleigh McEnany.  She's a beast.

Joe Biden is full of hot air.

Literally.  And live on air too.

Hong Kong is just China now

Hong Kong is no longer recognized as autonomous by America.  That will have a dramatic impact on US-China trade, and unfortunately also on the freedoms of the people of Hong Kong.  Hopefully China sees that and backs off, but it's not likely.  The underpinning of the Chinese communist government is the ability to take advantage of easy trade terms with the rest of the world and cheap Chinese labor to continue it's totalitarian regime.

The only way out for the world, and the people of China, particularly Hong Kong at this moment, is to remove that underpinning that is enabling China.  It's tough but necessary.  This would have been easier for everyone if it had been done 5, 10 or 15 years ago. Doing business with China, is enabling a repressive and yes brutal, communist regime.

Social Media is not free from scrutiny

Bill Barr says so.  Good for him. You cannot be both a platform and a censor/editor.

CNN is about CNN, always.

CNN reporter gets arrested live on CNN.  It almost seems staged to me.  I agree with Tim in this video reporting should not lead to arrests - that's a terrible precedent.  But I do have some questions.

Firstly the arrest looks like a primer on how to get arrested - as in instruction for protesters. I'm not saying CNN is creating an instructional video for protesters but it sure could be taken that way.  

Secondly there's a political aspect to the arrest - see how bad president Trump is?  Orange Man Bad.  He's having protesters arrested.  Never mind the fact that the president has nothing to do with the arrest.  Never mind that it's CNN making the story about CNN.  Never mind that it's sensationalism.  That's not to say the arrest is not newsworthy but this is CNN being about CNN and CNN trying to make it about social justice warrior, to serve CNN.

Friday Musical Interlude, except it's not music

I often listen to nature sounds when I'm relaxing, and my wife used to really enjoy them for falling asleep as well.  Today, instead of some music I thought I'd share one of the nature sounds videos I found on YoutTube recently.
