Pt. 4 (the last one), what will a war with China be like for the average American?

In short, it's the end of the dollar and the American economy. We as a nation will be impoverished like the UK after WWII. Britons in the 1950s were WAY poorer than Americans of a similar class. Image
Gas will probably be rationed. Why? 1, refineries will probably be struck by China to harm our economy and war effort. 2, China will probably apply pressure to foreign nations to cut off our oil supply. 3, this serves the fossil-fuel hating left's purposes.
In WWII, gas rationing wasn't necessary; we had plenty of oil. The problem was rubber, which came mainly from Japanese held territory. Tires had to be conserved and it was easier for the feds to limit driving via gas limits (and lower the speed limit) or else we'd drive on rims.

When Trump called COVID "the Chinese virus," it led to a rise in anti-Asian attacks.

This racist and ineffective policy from the Biden White House will have the same devastating effect. Shame on you @POTUS @AshishKJha46 @CDCDirector!

Requiring negative tests for flights from a single country is ineffective because the US is already letting it rip and generating variants, and also because people travel everywhere, so variants that may become dominant in China will still reach the US via other countries.
The Biden White House requiring negative tests for only China is a move that puts politics over public health, and increases the likelihood of xenophobia and attacks on Asian people in the US.

THIS IS ASIAN HATE: It's unclear when encounter in #Seattle's Capitol Hill happened, but vid was posted recently. Asian Americans continue to be subjected to this behavior. It's just NOT being reported. ANGRY woman pretty much lists every stereotype and insult. #StopAsianHate
INTERNET WILL FIND HER: Hey at least she’s a #Raiders fan. I love Bo Jackson and I’m trying to get Davante Adams in a trade for my fantasy football team. 😂🤡🙃 #Seattle #StopAsianHate
WILL MAYOR REGRET DECISION? Back in October, reports emerged about @MayorofSeattle cutting city's anti-Asian hate budget by 50%. But incidents keep happening. Some now asking, "What has Mayor really done for Asian Americans so far?" Good question. #Seattle

This 68-year old jewelry shop owner was pistol-whipped & hit in the head w/a hammer 9/15 in DE.

Son Steve told me he wants to spread awareness b/c “I’m thinking ab my family’s safety & safety of Korean biz owners.”

He spoke w/@nydia_han & @6abc covering 🧵⬇️ #StopAAPIHate
(2/3) Steve est. the jewelry taken was valued at around $100K.

Wilmington PD say they arrested 39-y/o Calvin Ushery who is now in custody on a $130K cash-only bail.

Steve added dad spent multiple nights in the ICU for brain/head trauma & has delayed speech & can’t walk.
Note: the rest of the vid is too graphic & triggering for Steve’s family. It shows the suspect smashing & stealing for 20 mins.

Steve set up a @gofundme to pay for med bills & to help dad retire. Excess funds will go to nonprofits fighting #stopaapihate

Anthony Evans is accused of using a box cutter in a hate crime attack on a 59-year-old Asian seamstress in Manhattan. He's been charged with assault as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon. #StopAsianHate ImageImageImage
The tweet at the top of this thread says the attack happened on Aug. 31. That is a typo. The attack happened on Sunday, July 31. I apologize for the error.

1 suspect asks her for the time. She shows her ⌚️ b/c she doesn’t speak Engl. She realizes the group is “up to no good” so she runs into the elevator.

The susps follow her & search her. They find an iPhone7. When Mrs. Ren refuses to give it up, she’s assaulted. #StopAsianHate
When the 4 take her phone & leave Mrs. Ren tries to hide in a nearby hallway.

But the susps come back AGAIN & take her keys. They do not touch her earrings or watch. She has no wallet

The 4 appear to take turns attacking her. She couldn’t get out of bed today. #StopAAPIHate

“No G**ks” & other racist graffiti was found spray-painted on a San Leandro home’s sale sign Saturday.

A piece of paper was also found saying “this parking spot is NOT for g**ks.” Sunday, graffiti was discovered on the home’s garage.

That’s when… (Thread ⬇️)#StopAAPIHate Image
That’s when the homeowner knew something had to be done.

“We want to stop crimes & stand up & let people hear our voice” said the agent who sent me these images.

This 90-year old w/dementia was home w/2 grandsons when men jumped over a fence & entered the sunroom in an attempted home invasion.

This is 1 of 5 sim incidents I’ve reported on in 2 wks in S. San Jose.

“I felt like I failed to secure the home.” Says 1 grandson. Thread ⬇️
The crooks left the crowbar they’re holding in the backyard. Nobody was hurt in this incident.

The same day tho an 83-y/o grandpa was not so lucky. He was at home during a home invasion robbery & hit on the head & taken to the hospital.

Just yesterday 2 men (at least 1 dressed like a mail carrier) invaded the home of a couple in their 60’s.

Their daughter said the men pistol-whipped her mom twice & held dad against his will.

You can see one man pull out a long object f/his bag.

Little Saigon in Oakland is under attack DAILY.

Now dozens of mostly refugee-owned business owners say they want the city to stop ignoring the robberies, arsons, break-ins & attacks.

“When did my life become so undervalued?” says Lele Quach.

(Thread ⬇️) #StopAAPIHate
This woman owns a cigarette store & says she’s been robbed 7xs. A truck also rammed into her shop. You can still see tire marks.

Trinh Le even sleeps on the floor of his jewelry store because he’s has 10 break-ins in one year & has to be his own security guard. #StopAsianHate
Nearly two dozen business owners met w/me today to share their stories & videos hoping the city will pay attention to Little Saigon like they do to Chinatown.

Here is the Quickly being robbed.

They want cameras, volunteer patrols, more police presence.

This man in his 60’s was carjacked & dragged on the pavement in Oakland’s Chinatown 8th & Jackson this afternoon.

He left his keys in the car while picking up a bag of rice & the suspect got in the car.

The victim runs over & holds on to the vehicle. (Thread ⬇️) #StopAAPIHate
You can see the man suffered abrasions to many parts of his body including his face.

Thankfully two volunteer patrol groups & civilians stopped to translate, call 9-1-1 & render aid. OPD arrived minutes later as they were doing patrols nearby at the time.

Carl Chan, Oakland Chinatown Chamber pres said “ppl think crime is down especially [pertaining to] #aapi hate. It seems like it’s slowing down but it’s not. Report to PD…let ppl know these incidents happen in our community.”

We can confirm that Devin Wayne Center of Fayetteville, Arkansas is "Nathan AR" of Patriot Front.

Center was arrested yesterday in Idaho along with 30 other members of the organization.

Here's Center/"Nathan AR" at a regional PF training event last year. Image
Here are messages by "Nathan AR"/Devin Wayne Center in Patriot Front internal communications, from a large data leak published by @UR_Ninja last year.

"Nathan AR" was clear that he lived in or near Fayetteville, Arkansas.… Image
We further verified this identification by locating public photos of Devin Wayne Center, which perfectly matched the individual who antifascists knew as "Nathan AR" of Patriot Front.

These 82 & 72 y/os were tied up, mouths taped shut & shoved in a bathroom for 2 hrs while their San Jose home was ransacked.

The suspects even used the couple’s cell phone to call a translator to get their ATM PIN.

I have NEVER heard of that before. #StopAsianHate Thread ⬇️
They showed me how multiple attackers jumped over a fence, entered (while they were resting/watching Chinese soap operas) bound their wrists with their own belts.

The 82-year old man was hit on the head with a gun & a knife put to his throat.

#StopAAPIHate #StopAsianHate
Their car was then stolen & used in this home invasion the same day. (I shared this vid earlier this week.)

The homes are just 1 mile apart.

In that case, a man was w/his sleeping 15-month old when the group of 5 or 6 held him at gunpoint & kidnapped him & took him to an ATM.

RECALLED: Chesa Boudin was too progressive even for liberal San Francisco. This is a cautionary tale for elected officials in Seattle, a city with similar sensibilities. Asian American voting bloc played massive role in recall. Boudin accused of botching response to #AsianHate.
Americans trust Republicans MORE than Democrats to deal with crime and the economy.…

Only 15 percent of police departments acknowledge that there are hate crimes. Data collection is poor, says Mike German of the @BrennanCenter
The news media, politicians were talking about "the threat China posed." It was not fringe groups, it was members of Congress, says Mike German, explaining the roots of anti-Asian hate. #StopAsianHate #HateCrime
