China's Totally Got the Wuhan Flu Beaten and the Transmission Rate is Only 0.055 Per Million
And Oh Yeah, They Just Ordered All Their Cinemas Closed Again
And Oh Yeah, There's Open Rioting as Provinces Set Up Barricades to Seal Themselves Off

Well I can certainly see why the Enemy of the People/Chinese Propaganda Front media was so eager to propagate China's complete bullshit claims.

The media could ask whistleblowers and activists about the real numbers -- except they can't, because the Chinese government murdered them.

The media likes to pretend it cares about murdered journalists, sometimes. Unless there's a more important subject at hand, such as OrangeManBad.

So sure, China's got the Egg Drop Croup beat.

That's why it just ordered theaters that it had permitted to reopen to shut down again.

Over 600 movie theaters across China were given the green light to reopen their doors over the past week, but Beijing's Film Bureau put out a notice late Friday ordering all theaters to go back into shutdown.

No official explanation for the sudden reversal was provided. Industry insiders instantly began speculating that the government was worried about a potential second wave of coronavirus infections.

Let me tell you how "beaten" the Wuhan Flu is in China:

It's so beaten that when Hubei province -- where Wuhan is located -- was taken off lockdown and Hubei residents tried to cross a river into neighboring Jiangxi province, Jiangxi cops blocked the bridge.

(Don't bother with that propaganda report from UPI -- they substantially underplay the story, probably to appease the Chinese. I link it just to confirm the citizen reporting I link below.)

Blocked from leaving their province, then Hubei citizens began getting violent, overturning the Jiangxi police's cars.

And then the Hubei police started battling the Jiangxi police.

So definitely trust the Chinese Propaganda Media -- both the one actually in China, and the one here in NYC, DC, and Atlanta.


Commenters just explained to me where the "China is asshoe" meme I've been seeing comes from:

============

This is why you are skeptical, at best, of everyone's numbers, especially the ones that are huge outliers.

Italy's outlier is their massive death rate which isn't close to any other nation's.

China's outlier is their sudden lack of new cases.

At best, you remove these from analysis.

At worst, you laugh at them as you remove them from analysis.

One of the greatest things about The Last Emperor is the film's use of color. The beginning and end periods are filmed very similarly (with Puyi's time in prison looking much drabber) with bright and vibrant colors to imply that Imperial China and Communist China really weren't that different. They were still highly hierarchical societies filled with empty pageantry and lack of concern for the common man.

104 Pinette was hilarious, even if he only realy had one bit: I'm really fat and love to eat.

I loved his bit on an Italian food. Pinette claims he memorized "I'm starving, feed me" in a bunch of languages, and used it in an Italian restaurant.

Its hard to believe but he died as a result of being grossly overweight.

131 55 One of the hidden truths of Chinese history is that China is not a country, it is an Empire in a perpetual state of latent civil war. This is precisely why all successful Chinese governments for the last 2000 years have been brutal dictatorships.
Posted by: Martin Adamson at March 27, 2020 03:10 PM (5HEuz)

Very good description! One of the main reasons the current Government, ANY Chinese government, puts so much effort into controlling the population is that they know very well, from the history, that with a huge number of people so tightly packed, things can go completely out of control and the country be turned upside down with incredible speed. It's happened many times in their past.

With a billion people, all it takes is for 10% of them to get so pissed off they go violent, and suddenly they've got an army of 100 million pissed off people marching through the streets burning shit.

Someone pointed out that in China, you have to have your phone. You can't do anything without it. If they are shutting them off, it is the equivalent of all of your services (bank, travel, utilities, etc) getting turned off. If they are doing that, then they are hiding something.

++++++++++++
Possible, but going to war requires soldiers and they generally need to buy in. You can conscript them with commissars who open fire if they refuse, but that is less good.

One of the bigger problems is likely the last sentence. If they don't believe the propaganda (probably don't, at least a lot of them) *AND* they are willing discuss that openly, it poses a serious problem because there is no other source of information. If you disregard *all* sources of information because everyone lies all the time, then what you are left with is arbitrary responses. One town sides with the police, another against. One province sides with Beijing, another against. Etc.

There is no trust to be found, and that can make things go in very unexpected directions very quickly.

Afaik it came from their lab but wasn't a weapon. I don't doubt they were looking to develop something, but I've read a paper stating the exact RNA sequence of this guy has been found in carp 10+ years ago in that region. So it's a virus they have been experimenting on for sure.

Also the Chinese central gov't basically called bullshit on Wuhan's claim that it came from a bat in the wet market or some nonsense. They said explicitly it looks like it came from the Wuhan lab.

Just go to: http://archive.vn/
and paste the link in, and voila! We can all get a good laugh and give them zero ad revenue.

196 I would say from history that the Chinese tend to be very obedient for a long time, and then even more obedient, and then every few generations they go totally batshit crazy and burn everything to the ground, and then they get real obedient for a couple hundred more years.

also, there's a long history that, whenever the central government is weakened, warlords arise and split off various regions of the country as their own fiefdoms.

216 One of the hidden truths of Chinese history is that
China is not a country, it is an Empire in a perpetual state of latent
civil war. This is precisely why all successful Chinese governments for
the last 2000 years have been brutal dictatorships.

Posted by: Martin Adamson at March 27, 2020 03:10 PM (5HEuz)



Very good description! One of the main reasons the current
Government, ANY Chinese government, puts so much effort into controlling
the population is that they know very well, from the history, that with
a huge number of people so tightly packed, things can go completely
out of control and the country be turned upside down with incredible
speed. It's happened many times in their past.



With a billion people, all it takes is for 10% of them to get so
pissed off they go violent, and suddenly they've got an army of 100
million pissed off people marching through the streets burning shit.

273 I'd argue it was George Marshall, who apparently thought Mao and the commies were just misunderstood agrarian reformers. He forced Chiang to back off when Chiang could have finished Mao off.
Posted by: pep at March 27, 2020 03:24 PM (T6t7i)
++++++++++++++++
There was a lot of that. There was a lot of pro-Chinese fetishism in the US government during and after the War (the "China Lobby" was real). Chiang and his Nationalists looted everything that wasn't nailed down, stole vast quantities of treasure instead of using it to fight the Japanese, became so corrupt that they couldn't move forward, and utterly failed against Mao in the postwar Civil War in China.

There was little appetite to keep shoving treasure down the Chiang sewer after the War and a distressing lack of hatred of the Communists on our side. We didn't help Mao much, but we also cut off Chiang and let it play out without much care as to which warlord won. I don't think cutting off Chiang was what led to his defeat - we could have poured every ounce of American production into Chiang and it would not have been likely to shift the balance of power because they were criminal and incompetent.

Bush wanted to get closer, but MFN was always renewed yearly so they were on a short lease. It was Clinton who handed them the MFN, and WTO.

I was against it when Bush said getting closer ties would moderate them, but he was still very cautious in his approach so can't blame him - wouldn't be prudent.

Some a few threads ago was talking about Italy's Bat Soup Fever mortality rate vs the overall mortality rate.

Turns out that for all of the country, it's increased the daily mortality rate, the average number dying per day by 20%. In the Lombardy province, where it's the worst, the figure is 80%. Death rates are 1.2 and 1.8 expected average.

The US average mortality rate is somewhere around 7.3/1000 per year. So that times population over 365 is 6600 deaths per day average for the whole country.

Daily Bat Soup Fever new deaths for yesterday was 268. So that it is about 4% of the daily average kicking the bucket rate.

That contradicts what Dr. Fauci was saying yesterday that the virus is not prone to mutating.

Plus if the US has the "deadly" strain, why are we not seeing the numbers that Italy has seen?
Posted by: Mr. Scott (Formerly GWS) at March 27, 2020 03:29 PM (JUOKG)

Look up county by county numbers and deaths.

Dougherty County (Albany, Ga) has 193 positives with 12 deaths and Lee County (suburb of Albany) has 35 positives with 5 deaths. All of this from 1 infected coming down from Atlanta going to 2 funerals and a murder trial. These numbers look like the L-strain.

You can do a search and keep up with the research being put out daily including the mapping of the different strain mutations as countries do this.

This whole L and S stuff is nonsense. The guy who wrote that paper was an idiot and confused. Also, he was using the biologist term for "virulent" meaning it infects easily, and not the Doctor's definition that it does more harm. People then conflated the two, but he shows no data that either strain causes more damage so that is all just confusion.

Lately, I've recalled Rudyard Kipling:

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

Have you ever had a cold (a form of corona virus) go thru your house? One kid brings it in, then mom gets it, then dad is basically destroyed by it, then the other kids get it, then it MUTATES and one of the kids gets it AGAIN. just not as severely.

coronas are simple and mutate really fast

there are not two strains of this. there are thousands of new versions since it was "released" (however that happened)

as viruses like this go thru human populations they tend towards less severity. that's the usual progression. not sure why this one would be different, but maybe b/c it was engineered they thought it might get MORE severe as it mutates rather than the opposite?

anyway I think it's confusing because the bug is always on the move. physically on the move and structurally. it wants to hang out with us

The owners of all US Treasuries are well known. They have issued bearer bonds in I don't know long.

Yes, we could cancel China's debt. But that would be a nuclear level option. The US has never once defaulted, repudiated, or otherwise failed to pay off Ts when they mature.

To do so would a huge shock to the system. It would put in the heads of the world investor that "Hey, Uncle Sam will fail to pay, I'd better be more careful".

It would be a YUGE thing. And there's been some interesting moves on US debt in the credit-detault swap market. With the announcement of the Fed's "PRINTERS TO LUDICROUS SPEED! BUY ALL THE THINGS!" policy, the CDS spiked, meaning they're thinking about US credit risk.

Much of the research performed during this pandemic is being published open access. This is a great way to get info out to the medical and scientific community, but there are 2 problems: First, there is no peer review, so hasty garbage research is prevalent. And 2, people with no medical or scientific background are trying to read research papers and draw conclusions from it.

1.) Good. I hope the average Chinaman gets so mad that he overthrows his authoritarian, illegitimate phony "government." Then, I hope it happens here. Time for all these fucks to go in a tumbrel.

2.) I know I keep dwelling on it, but I'm just so very angry.

My CEO who started our business 22 years ago from the back of a pickup truck, employs mostly men, and unlike many C-suite types, he means it when he says he cares about and loves his employees.

Every single meeting or call we're ever on includes a lecture about "helping our employees be better men, better fathers, and better members of their communities."

Every single one. Whether it's internal, or for the whole corporation.

It's heartbreaking what happened today, and these last weeks. Heartbreaking. I'm so angry I could cry.

That China can't be trusted. Never though they could. Fuck China. They can't be trusted and neither can Russia. Know what Russia does? They claim people who die of coronavirus didn't die from coronavirus. Rather, they say they died of pneumonia.

None of these dictatorships can be trusted.

Does this prove that China opened up businesses too early? Like Trump wants to? That seems to be the main thing this proves.

All this does is prove what I've been saying. This isn't a hoax. It isn't no big deal. It isn't a normal flu or cold. This is still getting worse DESPITE all the steps we are taking. Steps which yes, harm the economy. Steps which are unprecedented.

Meanwhile you guys are busy settling scores and spreading conspiracy theories (COVID was made in a lab, LOL).

There's no consistent through line here. One minute it's no big deal. The next it's a felony to lick a product at Walmart. Then it's overblown. Now China is realizing they let of the social distancing gas too early.

Pick a story and hold to it.

575 1. Looking at these videos, I boggle at the notion that the authorities can in practice identify all, or even any large fraction, of the participants. They're too generically Chinese, and a third of them are probably named Wang anyway.

2. But some highly recognizable individuals are shown, and they don't seem concerned over being identifiable, or about being photographed.

So I come away less convinced that China is the total surveillance state it's cracked up to be.

576 As to China's internal political stability, that American Thinker piece by Gary Gindler pointed out that Wuhan was once Chiang Kai-shek's capital city during the Chinese Civil War that ended with Mao's commies taking over.

The local politicos are still a thorn in Xi's side. Xi is facing great internal factionalization. The pressure from Trump just makes it worst.

As to defaulting on Treasury notes and bonds held by China, our adding 2 or 3 trillion dollars to the US money supply with a snap of the fingers will dilute the dollar and so reduce the real value of those Chinese holdings. That's pretty much the same thing.
