  1. @Zoraptorseems you are well versed in various alternative information sources. What do you think on the credibility of this material? https://redstate.com/jenvanlaar/2021/06/17/breaking-chinese-defector-confirmed-as-top-counterintelligence-official-n398374 First time looking at this source, so it has my alarm bells tingling, especially as it states 'rumors'.
  2. So in other words, we wasted a year, just because we did not want Trump to possibly be right... https://www.nbcnews.com/science/science-news/lab-leak-theory-science-scientists-rcna1191
  3. It was not roughing up, it was exploiting being stupid and asking stupid questions or rather saying a thesis and expecting Putin to tumble... You don't run a country like Russia for this many years to be taken to some emotionally charged liberal arts graduates and lose face in a discourse... But those journos are plainly too stupid to understand their actions and questions are idiotic. For people like Putin you need to be calm, steady and run them with numbers and events and let them make a mistake or slip something through when they must construct their own thesis. Latch onto inconsistencies, not shout things out. Outrage culture may work in the US, but it doesn't work even south of the US border.
  4. Seems Putin looked better today than Biden in the pressers, and american journos made fools of themselves a few times. I chuckled a bit at the last Putin answer to the Canadian based journo. Smart guy he is, no doubt about it. Biden's conf was more timid than most journos would want, and Biden even snapped at one of the CNN lunatics, only to later smudge it all over with being a wise guy in that situation.
  5. They can always blow themselves up out of existence i guess... https://www.zerohedge.com/energy/chinese-nuclear-plant-vents-gasses-after-imminent-radiological-threat-reported Seems it is being controlled and monitored, although it was the French copartner who reported it and not the Chinese side.
  6. Be your own boss? Or negotiate better! But first upskill!
  7. You might have a whole lot of Africa, South America and Asia to account for and convince. That said, I very much support moves for equal rights and opportunities, but i stop supporting such at the notion of equal outcomes no matter what the input other than some 'assigned' characteristics. I have various friends of a different than majority sexual orientation and even they say, some of the stuff being talked about is ridiculous and outright hurting people like them in their move for equal rights and opportunities (as the more extreme views stick like a **** to a certain image and are used to define majority of the community).
  8. Sometimes i wish they just stopped putting opinions on the news pieces, but i guess everything revolves around politics nowadays and you need to endure crappy clickbaits The underlying issue reported though is a valid observation and indeed it gives more power to China in any economic disputes and attempts at decoupling driven by US. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/more-european-firms-onshoring-china-offshoring-complicates-bidens-decoupling-plan
  9. Knowing and doing are two different things. Physics can be known, but engineering and project coordination are not something you can replicate easily. Also, they were the first to land a vehicle on the far side of the moon. "The Apollo 8 astronauts were the first humans to see the far side in person when they orbited the Moon in 1968. All manned and unmanned soft landings had taken place on the near side of the Moon, until 3 January 2019 when the Chang'e 4 spacecraft made the first landing on the far side."
  10. https://www.wsj.com/articles/the-science-suggests-a-wuhan-lab-leak-11622995184 If WSJ is putting this, is it still just a fringe conspiracy theory? @Gromnir
  11. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/mach-30-wind-tunnel-propels-china-decades-ahead-global-hypersonic-race 10 to 20years max when China will be a dominant superpower. Meanwhile in US, pronouns and math is racist. EDIT: how long did China take from landing on the darkside of the Moon to Mars landing?
  12. Interesting article as it seems to reinforce the perception that heavily tax burdened states are losing people and tax base, which will only accelerate their debt spiral and a fall into a disfunctional state in disrepair. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/new-irs-data-reveals-which-states-won-and-lost-battle-people-their-wealth Also, why artificially pushing for higher labor cost (i.e. gov driven) in the times of global and remote workforce are not really good as a policy and has a potential for backfiring https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/yellen-big-push-offshore-us-labor
  13. @Zoraptor It's daily mail, but the two names working on the paper are no nobodies. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9629563/Chinese-scientists-created-COVID-19-lab-tried-cover-tracks-new-study-claims.html @Gromnir If the content of this research paper was sound, would the lab leak theory still be just 'a conspiracy'?
