The #Coronavirus Could Reshape #Global #Order ~ @kurtmcampbell @RushDoshi

"As #Washington falters, #Beijing is moving quickly and adeptly to take advantage of the opening created by US mistakes, filling the vacuum to position itself as the global leader in pandemic response. 1/n
It is working to tout its own system, provide #material #assistance to other #countries, and even organize other #governments. The sheer chutzpah of #China’s move is hard to overstate. 2/n

#CCP_is_terrorist #CCPvirus #ChineseVirus #WuhanVirus #CoronaVirusCHINA
Yet #Beijing understands that if it is seen as leading, and #Washington is seen as unable or unwilling to do so, this #perception could fundamentally alter the United States’ position in #global politics and the contest for #leadership in the twenty-first century. 3/n

En mitad de esta coyuntura global, el régimen chavista busca obtener espacios de legitimidad, a costas de mostrar lástima a los actores de peso en Occidente, específicamente al #FMI. Abro🧵
Lo primero: no hay ningún “giro ideológico”. Los costos políticos de solicitar ayuda al tan odiado y neoliberal Fondo Monetario Internacional no se comparan con los costos políticos que aún posee el régimen tras su falta de legitimidad internacional.
El #FMI es un organismo financiero prácticamente controlado por #USA quien posee el 16,74% de las acciones del fondo lo que hace que su voto valga literalmente más que el de los demás miembros; es decir, es el único país con capacidad de vetar una propuesta.

Wow! All #US journalists working for New York Times, Wall St Journal and the Washington Post (who’s credentials expire this year) to be expelled from #China. They have 10 days to leave. #Beijing has just announced.
I’m not sue if the removal of #China press credentials for #US journalists working for NYT, WSJ and WaPo also technically means automatic removal of their visas but no credentials means no work here in mainland China, #HongKong or #Macao.
BTW the wording of the statement seems to mean that these #China mainland-based #US correspondents after being effectively expelled won’t be able to work in #HongKong and #Macao, not that reporters based in #HongKong and #Macao are also to be chucked out, if I understand it right

Reuters, and a number of American newspapers, have published reports confirming the arrest Princes of the Saudi royal family, the most important of whom is Ahmed bin Abdulaziz,brother of King Salman and former Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef.1/8
reut.rs/2TvOCit
Behind this dangerous move is likely to be standing the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, as he is responsible for removing Mohammed bin Nayef from his position as Crown Prince and has precedents of detaining princes under the anti-corruption cover.2/8

With a careful reading of the atmosphere in the Kingdom of #Saudi Arabia during the past four years, three scenarios can be developed for the reasons for this arrest, as follows:

A lot has changed in #Idlib/NW #Syria in recent days & much of the focus has been on hour-by-hour developments & less has been said on what it all means going forward.

Here's a lengthy thread laying out some of my thinking.
2 weeks ago, pro-#Assad forces were rampaging through #Idlib, overwhelming opposition defenses & swallowing up #Turkey's military observation posts almost at will.

The world stood virtually silent - or indifferent - as 1 million people were methodically & brutally displaced.
#pt: Amid the pro-#Assad advances, #Turkey ramped up arms supplies & intel sharing with #NLF/#SNA opposition proxies - in an attempt to bolster their offensive & defensive capabilities.

Then #TSK artillery support was added, along with a low-tempo campaign of covert UAV strikes.

Former Pierce County, #Washington Housing Authority Finance Director Cova Campbell (aka Cova Hunter) was indicted for stealing almost $7 MILLION from the Housing Authority and using it for personal use, such as to buy land among other things.

#ButNothingsHappening
It looks like the Washington state auditor found that funds were missing also did an investigation.

She had transferred a lot of the money right from the Housing Authority into her own accounts. How confident she must have been that she’d never get caught.

⚠️The similar genomes of 2 #coronavirus infections in #Washington suggest #COVID19 may have been spreading in the state for ~6 weeks.

150—1,500 people “have either been infected and recovered or currently are infected now.”

Expect many more cases, soon.

Unfortunately, community spread of #coronavirus has been occurring in MULTIPLE regions for weeks. In #Oregon, the infected school worker(!) had symptoms for a week before being tested — add the long incubation period, and this person likely was infected 2-3 weeks ago.

#COVID19
As I discussed, we cannot stop #coronavirus, but we can contain it.

But unfortunately, I expect many more #COVID19 cases for the next 4-6 weeks (at least).

Fatima A. Reda is a Yemeni working with the International Court of Justice:

The war in #Yemen was not initiated by the Al #Saud or the Al Nahyan and therefore they are not concerned with ending it, they certainly wish to end it, but they are much weaker than that.

It is a war that has begun and will end in #Washington, specifically members of the Central Committee of the Republican Party. Not to stop the Iranian tide, nor to raise the glory of #Yemen, but rather to reduce the #American monetary debt.

Excellent! The DOJ is suing King County, #Washington due to illegal & unconstitutional restrictions on their use of Boeing Field in Seattle.

King Cty created an executive order to ban ICE and all deportations from Boeing Field, which goes against a prior agreement.
That’s caused ICE to have to transport all aliens for deportation 150 miles away by bus.
Apparently, the federal gov transferred Boeing Field airport to King County in 1948 with an agreement and stipulation that the fed gov can use the field at no cost.

A deadly virus is spreading from Asia, affecting hundreds of people and resulting in dozens of deaths, in what may become a gloabal health epidemic. This thread contains news about the outbreak.

On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).
