The RAND International Security and Defense Policy Center issued a report last month on China’s increasing power and influence around the world.
Between 1998 and 2018 China’s official foreign lending grew from almost nothing to $1.6 trillion, eclipsing loans from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Spending on the influential Chinese Belt and Road Initiative is actually surpassed by Chinese foreign direct investments (FDI), according to the report.
And money comes with strings attached.
Kudos to the Biden Administration for blacklisting 30 China firms for human rights abuse, yet at the same time, Biden’s home state of Delaware has just given a $19 million taxpayer grant to Shanghai-based biopharmaceutical company WuXi AppTec, which is collecting DNA data.
Anthony Fauci, under questioning from Rand Paul this week, claimed he does not support gain of function research, after running the NIH for decades, which funds gain of function research. Oh, and also approved digging up the Spanish Flu!

Biden’s doubling the capital gains tax rate would decrease, instead of increase, federal revenue by $33 billion over 10 years, since investors exploit loopholes to avoid paying high rates, according to analysis by Penn Wharton.

Geert Vanden Bossche, PhD, a vaccine expert who has worked with GAVI, Univac, Novartis and the BIll and Melinda Gates Foundation, has released a warning letter to his peers on multiple dangers ahead regarding COVID-19 vaccinations.
Vaccinations save lives, he says, but vaccinating during a pandemic only helps the virus, since it can still infect the vaccinated, resulting in asymptomatic shedding of mutated viruses.
Furthermore, the experimental mRNA vaccines (used by Moderna and Pfizer) introduce a new antigen-specific antibody, which outcompetes the body’s natural defensive antibodies it would normally use to handle COVID-19.
He warns that when an mRNA injected person is subsequently infected with other diseases or a COVID variant, this antigen-specific antibody (for COVID-19) might again take over, but fail against a foe it wasn’t designed to fight.
