According to the latest International Monetary Fund projections, China is set to grow just over 1% in 2020, while the U.S. economy will likely contract nearly 6% this year — worse than the global 3% decline in growth.
“Globalization itself is going to survive. It’s going to be adjusted around some of these issues especially the tech,” said Walter Lohman, director of the Asian Studies Center at The Heritage Foundation, from which the Trump administration has drawn many of its staff.
“People are still going to want to invest in China for the China market,” he said in a phone call. “We’ve been talking about it for 100 years. It’s here now and there are companies that want to access it. China isn’t the worst place to do business. Even on the transparency side it’s kind of in the middle.”
“That’s a V-shaped recovery you see in the (Purchasing Manager’s Index), down sharply in February, back up in March, still strong in April, back up a little above 50 in May,” Martin, who is managing director at the firm, told CNBC’s “Street Signs” on Monday.
Translation: China got the virus first, therefore got through the virus first, and now is bouncing back. The rest is wishful thinking by the elites about how they want globalism to continue despite it having blatantly failed in front of all of us.
“(Norway’s) demographics and domestic medical infrastructure make it better equipped for the outbreak than many other countries, and its strong fiscal position puts it at a distinct advantage,” Goldman analysts, led by co-heads of global foreign exchange, Zach Pandl and Kamakshya Trivedi, said in the note on Sunday.
Bet against diversity.
The measures to halt imports come after US President Donald Trump on Friday threw a barrage of criticism at Beijing after it moved to impose controversial new national security legislation on Hong Kong. Critics say it will crack down on dissent and undermine the “one country, two systems” principle that has kept Hong Kong autonomous of the mainland since the 1997 handover from the British.
When asked to comment on the death of African-American George Floyd, spokesperson Zhao Lijian told reporters that racial discrimination is a long-lasting problem in the United States.
We hope that the U.S. government would take all necessary measures to deal with the violent law enforcement of police, so as to protect and safeguard the legitimate interests of racial minorities, Zhao said during a daily briefing in Beijing.
Our enemies love our diversity while eliminating their own.
Chief Smith says last night protesters set fire to a few buildings, including a multi-family residence that was occupied by a child in the 300 block of West Broad Street.
As fire crews were arriving, Smith says protesters blocked the engine from reaching the fire.
In the wake of the death of African American George Floyd, the vandals asked in graffiti on the outside of the memorial’s central fountain whether black veterans count.
“He didn’t hurt nobody, didn’t deserve to get shot down like he did,” McAtee’s sister said. “I don’t know what happened, but whatever happened here, my brother didn’t do nothing wrong. He was an innocent person, and innocent bystander. He did not deserve this at all.”
The affected monuments, photos of which were posted in a tweet by the National Mall National Park Service (NPS), included the Lincoln Memorial, the World War II Memorial and the statue of General Casimir Pulaski. It is not clear to what extent any other monuments might have been vandalized.
Phoenix police arrested more than 100 people following Saturday night’s protests. Charges included rioting, unlawful assembly and aggravated assault of a police officer.

Throughout the day, he said he and other neighboring businesses have seen people biking or driving up and down the streets, looking in windows and, he believes, pointing at possible targets for looting.
He said point-blank he was “out to get some money”. When asked if his actions were related to the protests and events that took place in Minnesota, he said it had a little bit to do with it, but it was mostly for “the dough.”
He left our interview by saying, “If you’re going to get some money, do it right. Don’t do it the dumb way. Do it the smart way.”

The protesters pulled down the top part of the statue of Charles Linn by tying a rope and using manpower and a truck to pull it down.
The protesters defaced the Confederate monument, chipped away part of the concrete and pulled the wooden barrier off the base.
Lot of white arms there. Some people still refuse to believe that the problem is individualism, manifesting in the toxic stew of egalitarianism, universalism, etc.
Riot police faced off with protesters in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia and LA, firing tear gas and pepper bullets to try to disperse crowds.
Police vehicles were set on fire and shops were looted in several cities.
The country is experiencing the most widespread racial turbulence and civil unrest since the backlash to the assassination of Martin Luther King in 1968.
Every building burned, police car trashed, person killed, or store looted is a nail in the coffin of diversity.
A vehicle pulled up outside the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building at about 9:45 p.m. Friday and someone opened fire at two contract security officers who worked for the Federal Protective Service of the Department of Homeland Security, killing one and critically wounding the other, authorities said.
But little evidence for those claims have been put forward, and a previous statement by the mayor of St. Paul that most of the people arrested on Friday in Minneapolis were from out of town was later walked back. NBC News reached out to police departments in several major cities that were the scene of protests, but thus far none have said whether outside groups had been found to be operating during the protests.
Nope, just the ghetto rising up and looting as happened in LA, Watts, Detroit, and basically every other major American city.
Windows were smashed at the courthouse, explicit graffiti spray painted on the walls, and several people attempted to set parts of the building on fire during violent protest Saturday.
A Twitter search for “Santana Row,” which is the name of a shopping district in San Jose, California, reveals dozens of Twitter users encouraging their followers to target and loot the district. Many of the tweets have been on the platform for days.

Of course they do not crack down on SJWs and violent welfare recipients; these are their audience.
“You’ve got to arrest people, you have to track people, you have to put them in jail for 10 years and you’ll never see this stuff again,” said Trump. “We’re doing it in Washington, D.C. We’re going to do something that people haven’t seen before.”
Looters and rioters do what they do because there are no consequences. “Safety in numbers” is their guide. If you reveal their identities, sort of like Eric Clanton the bike lock attacker, they fade away.
“It’s a different Chinese Communist Party today than it was 10 years ago,” Pompeo told Maria Bartiromo on Fox News. “This is a Chinese Communist Party that has come to view itself as intent upon the destruction of Western ideas, Western democracies, Western values. It puts Americans at risk.”
Yet another Cold War instigated by a crazy Leftism regime. Maybe the West suffers from exhaustion from having fought so many of these.
A well-preserved substance found in a 2,700-year-old temple in Tel Arad has been identified as cannabis, including its psychoactive compound THC.
Researchers concluded that cannabis may have been burned in order to induce a high among worshippers.
This is the first evidence of psychotropic drugs being used in early Jewish worship, Israeli media report.
This is the problem with mystical religions: ultimately, they are based in sensations of the body and thus are materialistic. On another tangent, however, this shows us that different groups have different needs, and perhaps weed should be legal for those whose ancestors used it.
Carmel said that they started to conceive this project five years ago, but collecting the samples was a long process. The group of researchers managed to extract the DNA of 73 individuals whose remains were found in five archaeological sites in the region, including the prominent Tel Megiddo.
The general findings of the research suggest that among the Canaanites’ ancestors were earlier local Neolithic populations but also populations related to Chalcolithic Iran – and specifically the region of the Zagros Mountains – and/or the Bronze Age Caucasus.
Carmel pointed out that among the more unexpected findings were the genetic profiles of three individuals that at first seemed to have nothing to do with their fellow Canaanites. A more in depth-analysis exposed that they were likely descendants of relatively recent immigrants from the Caucasus.
Ancient history lives on. The events of each day are caused by the day before. Thus time presents itself as continuous, and we dwell forever in those early moments since we are the creation of them.
He added: “What they did once they’re inside the Trump administration to frustrate and sabotage his administration. So this is a serious, serious internal attack, an assault on our democracy, the most serious possibly in our history.”
The hold the Left has on America has been so strong that this entirely dangerous corruption was just about concealed.
“In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” said Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan in the northern region of Lombardy, which has borne the brunt of Italy’s coronavirus contagion.
“The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” he told RAI television.
“Only when the tide goes out,” Warren Buffett observed, “do you discover who’s been swimming naked.” For our society, the Covid-19 pandemic represents an ebb tide of historic proportions, one that is laying bare vulnerabilities and inequities that in normal times have gone undiscovered. Nowhere is this more evident than in the American food system. A series of shocks has exposed weak links in our food chain that threaten to leave grocery shelves as patchy and unpredictable as those in the former Soviet bloc. The very system that made possible the bounty of the American supermarket—its vaunted efficiency and ability to “pile it high and sell it cheap”—suddenly seems questionable, if not misguided. But the problems the novel coronavirus has revealed are not limited to the way we produce and distribute food. They also show up on our plates, since the diet on offer at the end of the industrial food chain is linked to precisely the types of chronic disease that render us more vulnerable to Covid-19.
You read about this on Amerika some weeks ago: the coronavirus revealed that the postwar order is as fragile as the Soviet one was, and falling fast.
But the fact that these outlets have the ability to delete comments after the fact was enough for Judge John Basten to declare them publishers: “They facilitated the posting of comments on articles published in their newspapers and had sufficient control over the platform to be able to delete postings when they became aware that they were defamatory.” Based on that logic, the media outlets “facilitated” the posting of comments simply by sharing the articles on Facebook.
Good. The rule should be: if you censor beyond removing spam and illegal material, you have approved of the content that is posted, and should be legally liable for anything found therein.
