Typically, at least half of Australia’s barley exports would be bound for China, trade that was estimated to be worth $1.5 billion in 2018 but due to drought fell to $600 million in 2019.
Beijing’s decision comes amid diplomatic tension between the countries and follows the Morrison Government leading the global push for a COVID-19 investigation.
What did we learn today, class?
Globalism is so dead.
Mainstream media catches up, but for the wrong reasons. COVID-19 killed globalization not because of the social distancing and quarantine requirements, but because it showed that the whole system was feeble. When you do not make your own supplies, you will not have them when you need them. When your economy depends on another nation, they will manipulate you. Even more, the entire “deep state” has been making money hand over fist on globalism, but seems to be unable to distinguish between a terrifying pandemic and an aggressive variety of SARS. When the dust settles in a year or so, Sweden will not have had any substantially greater casualties than lockdown countries did, since lockdown countries will get a stronger second and third wave than Sweden. This means that our response was out of control in part because China bungled it, and in part because the career bureaucrats running the West have no capacity for independent analysis, only a skillful and clever following the script. They are not leaders; they are workers whose job involves projecting an image and maintaining the steady flow of tax money into the bureaucracy. They love globalism because it enables them to work around the failure of labor, thanks to unions and high taxes, in the West, and to shuffle everyone into make-work jobs to keep the proles busy. They are out of their depth; so is China. No one trusts these governments anymore, and we want our stuff made in our homelands by our people, and if that means we have to cut off all the people supported by government benefits, so be it. We would rather deal with a civil war or race war than this instability, which our leaders will obviously never fix or even address.
India is also readying a pool of land twice the size of Luxembourg to offer companies that want to move manufacturing out of China, and has reached out to 1,000 American multinationals, Bloomberg reported.
“This outreach has been an ongoing process,” Deepak Bagla, chief executive of Invest India, the government’s national investment promotion agency told the BBC. “Covid will only accelerate the process of de-risking from China for many of these companies.”
Everyone likes India, and no one likes China. This still does not address the crisis of globalism: it shows us dodging our problems instead of fixing them, and it means that the things we need will still be overseas. The UK had trouble getting the paracetamol it needed from India during the crisis; if it was made in the UK, no such problem would exist. Western workers are going to have to accept less money, which means that we have to reduce costs in order to allow them to have decent normal lives. That in turn requires ditching high taxes, entitlements, diversity, affirmative action, big government, and the regulatory deep state.
But schools were not shut down nationwide, other than a few dozen because of too many sick teachers. Face masks weren’t required or even common. Though Woodstock was not held during the peak months of the H3N2 pandemic (the first wave ended by early March 1969, and it didn’t flare up again until November of that year), the festival went ahead when the virus was still active and had no known cure.
While it’s way too soon to compare the numbers, H3N2 has so far proved deadlier than COVID-19. Between 1968 and 1970, the Hong Kong flu killed between an estimated 1 and 4 million, according to the CDC and Encyclopaedia Britannica, with US deaths exceeding 100,000. As of this writing, COVID-19 has killed more than 295,000 globally and around 83,000 in the United States, according to Johns Hopkins University.
Less timorous times.
Summary: if China had given the world adequate warning, borders had been closed, and people had started wearing masks and goggles early on, none of this would have been a huge crisis. If we did not have foreigners working in our elder care homes, far fewer casualties would have been recorded. If we made our own stuff, we could have slammed the doors, gone the Sweden route, and still had functional economies.
Who owns Silicon Valley? If Chinese seed capital got these giants rolling, they have a secret they will do anything to protect. Certainly the Chinese stepped up investment during the Obama administration but fled like (well-cooked) dogs when Trump came around.
The only solution is to separate these populations.
Christians need to stay out of Israel just like Muslims. It is a Jewish state, for the Jewish people. We need our own ethno-states for our own people, like in America where the WASPs should stay and everyone else needs to get on a boat.
Globohomo is the new Leftist shibboleth. Do you accept gay rights? Then surely you support democracy, civil rights, affirmative action, market socialism, big government, and the other toxic brew of neurotic bureaucracy that the dying West spreads everywhere. WW2 was a war for democracy, just like WW1; we fought these in order to avoid having to admit that our system is failing and we have no other ideas. Our peasants are too dedicated to class warfare to go back to the kings. This means that we can only swim Leftward, heading to that eventual Communist future and third-world doom.
About half that million came from natural increase (births minus deaths) with the other half coming from net migration.

With Biden the presumptive nominee and Donald Trump facing widespread criticism for his handling of the coronavirus crisis, election experts say the upper chamber is up for grabs.
This is why these mentally ill people constantly engineer panic.
The Leftist constituency raids the trough. Voters sleep on.
If you sloppily store five hundred variants of SARS in a lab, the most infectious one will escape on one of your staff. Since they may not experience symptoms, you will probably not be aware of it until you backtrack later.
Red roses and candles were placed around the mock tombstone, which bore the inscription: “Freedom of the press, freedom of opinion, movement and assemblies – Democracy 1990-2020”, police said in a statement.
If only! We need to escape democracy, or the idea that all people have equal minimum rationality and therefore, herds of people make good decisions. In reality, herds of people compromise on whatever is convenient for their members, which means that any objective is forgotten. This means that unrealistic decisions become precedent, and further decisions are made deductively based on that precedent, which means that with each generation the democratic society moves farther from reality.
Among the contradictions in the code, critics say, is language about the ability of trans people to change their gender on birth certificates, legal in Puerto Rico since 2018.
The updated code states that nothing “undermines the process currently established” for legally changing a person’s gender, but amendments to a person’s birth sex on original birth certificates “cannot be authorized”.
All of democracy is signaling. They are not signaling virtue, they are signaling status. To do Leftist things places you in the Leftist gang, and now you have people to defend you and sympathize with you when life (as often happens with Leftists) goes wrong. Normal people have to live under these crazy laws.
More sloppy, lazy human abuse of nature. Keeping your cat indoors means you have to spend time interacting with it. People want to own cats for photo opportunities, not live with a family member who happens to be four-footed and furry.
Our economy, based on masturbation.
Diversity creates genocide. Reminder: Leftists think that minor rollback of diversity is the path to genocide. They are 180° away from the actuality as usual.
This is why globalism fails. We all have conflicting values, cultures, and genetics. There is no way to fix it, so just drop everything and walk away quickly and quietly.
“I did not say they deliberately did it, but their China virus — let’s go over the facts here, correct me if I’m wrong — the virus was spawned in Wuhan Province, patient zero was in November. The Chinese, behind the shield of the World Health Organization for two months, hid the virus from the world, and then sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese on aircraft to Milan, New York and around the world to seed that,” Navarro claimed.
I hear the warming scream of eight Pratt & Whitney TF33 engines.
Why do most Leftists seem to have bizarre genetic health issues? Maybe they are just the result of deleterious mutations, which is why they are so xenophiliac: they need to outbreed in order to fix their accumulated negative recessive traits.
On Sunday morning, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO posted a cryptic tweet, saying “Take the red pill” with an emoji of a red rose.
However, the phrase “take the red pill” has taken on a new meaning in Internet subculture, and it usually refers to conservative political beliefs.
Ivanka Trump then quoted “Taken!” on Musk’s tweet, prompting Wachowski to reply “F— both of you”
Leftists, so stable and happy. The Matrix was an idiotic movie; read Neuromancer instead.
Stop the silk glove invasion. Good to see some finally waking up a bit.
The EU seems to do nothing right and cost a lot of money. It makes American government look good.
Not wrong, but also an unintentional misdirect. We are expanding into land that nature needs to keep its species alive. The more contact we have with them, the more weird stuff comes out of the deep jungle. Expect more pandemics until nature can cut humanity down to a manageable size, probably half or a quarter of its current population.
The chief confirmed to us the post, which we are not sharing, insinuated it was “unfortunate” the coronavirus did not kill off all black people. Hardy says he does not tolerate that behavior.
Less well known is the fact that Karman held a senior position with her country’s Al-Islah Party, an affiliate of the Muslim Brotherhood known regionally for its divisive and violent agenda.
In their defense, who else will know extremist content but extremists? Most likely, she will busily ban Republican anti-tax videos while encouraging global jihad. However, Facebook will escape charges of discriminating against Muslims when studies reveal that 99.4% of white people on Facebook hit the “block” button when they see people in burkas and explosive belts.
Nope, we want out of your spying and economic manipulation. Make your own stuff, buy your own stuff. We will do the same. In a hundred years, this will be revealed as supreme wisdom, and globalism to have been another idiotic human trend based on wishful thinking.
If confirmed, this is evidence that the virus was spreading in Europe two months before France declared its first cases Jan. 24 and well before COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, had been officially identified in China.
Knocks on modern West, hollow sound emerges. Is anyone competent in there? For as much as we are assured that this pandemic was a near-apocalypse, it seems doctors did not notice it when it began reaping. China bungled it and then lied about it. No one seemed to notice that either. I am sure all of these people got high grades for memorizing Leftist woo in the public schools.
Originally, the idiots were sending COVID-19 patients to nursing homes. No wonder they have heaps of corpses stored in mail trucks.
In the West, we make BMWs, cheese, wine, crackers, and web sites. Portrait of Late Stage Democracy, just like in Rome. We have mastered our environment so much we have become big fat useless babies.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, more than 100 colleges and universities have made the SAT optional for the next school year, including the entire University of California school system.
This is fine because the students are morons anyway, and the whole point is to make the student bodies more diverse, which will simply drive the remaining white people toward correspondence classes, owning their own businesses, and hopefully cheating on their taxes as much as the Chinese and Indians here do.
“One of our moderators sticked a series post about the lynching of a Black man, Ahmaud Arbery,” the post begins. “In response, a troll gifted a Reddit Community Award of ‘Im Deceased’ on the post. The award is a skull laughing and the text says ‘Call an ambulance, I’m laughing too hard.’”
“Stories about a Black man being killed are being decorated by racists with monkey icons, ‘I’m Deceased’, ‘F’, ‘Wholesome’, etc. And Reddit is refusing to provide any type of tool to prevent this from happening.”
What the heck is Reddit supposed to do? I suppose someone could have seen that monkey awards were a dumb idea, but they are “popular.”
I am half-hippie and half-skinhead, and I approve this message.
Occam’s Razor says bungling and face-saving by subordinates more than coordination, but the big point is that we cannot rely on China or indeed any overseas manufacturing, which means that we will have to get control of our own workforce:
Then, we can live well again, and people working normal jobs (factories, restaurants, construction, maids) can live reasonably well again, as they did in the 1950s. We have set up a high-tax economy where you either have an office job or live in the ghetto and get raped daily.
Complex, nuanced answer: there were no good guys in WW2, but the “good guys” ended up bringing the disease of democracy and Leftism with them, destroying everything they touched. At this point, Hitler has won, mainly because people no longer really care about the genocide and repression because they see he was right about diversity, communism, and the need for social conservatism and eugenics. We are awash in idiots empowered by democracy, devouring all that they see, leaving behind wastelands filled with plastic trash. Thin the herd! Repatriate the Other! Send all Leftists to Venezuela!Diversity delenda est.
These UN clowns do nothing of importance or value. Send them nothing.
Globalism and diversity are comedic walking corpses, or zombies, or maybe just obsolete.
