Doocy: “Xi, who I know you go way back with, have you had a chance to ask him if these reports are true — that China maybe misled the world at the beginning [of Covid19]?”

Biden: “No, I have not had that conversation with President Xi.”

(WH Biden-Xi readout below for reference)
So, per the WH read out of the Biden-Xi call in February plus Biden's comments just now, Biden somehow talked with Xi about "countering the COVID-19 pandemic" and "the shared challenges of global health security" without confronting Xi about the CCP's coronavirus lies & cover-up.
I'll note that, in a statement to me, State Dept spox condemned China's "false, baseless, & unscientific claims" (conspiracy theory that COVID-19 started w/ U.S. military instead of in China) but Biden apparently hasn't brought this sort of thing up w/ Xi.

I’ve spent a year writing about the CCP’s coronavirus cover-up & duplicity and the WHO’s incompetence & complicity, and so with a deeply flawed WHO-China report on COVID-19’s origins coming out in days, I figured I’d do a long thread on my stories from the past year. So… THREAD.
Numerous CCP diplomats engaged in a global disinfo campaign starting around March 2020, peddling falsehoods that COVID-19 didn’t start in China & may have originated with the U.S. military as they tried to distract from China’s duplicity & cover-up. 1/x…
Xi Jinping touted a March 2020 call he’d had with Putin, who expressed support for the CCP during China’s war of words with the U.S. over Beijing’s terrible response to the coronavirus & as China spread conspiracies about the origins of the pandemic. 2/x…

This New York Times story on Robert Redfield's comments saying he thinks the most likely origin for the coronavirus is accidental escape from a Wuhan lab appears in Google search with the headline: "Ex-CDC Director Favors Debunked Covid-19 Origin Theory."… Image
(The lab-leak hypothesis has not been debunked.)
Also. NYT says "the message from intel agencies was clear...they had no evidence the coronavirus escaped from the lab." But ODNI said "the IC will continue to rigorously examine emerging info & intel to determine if the outbreak...was the result of an accident at a lab in Wuhan." ImageImage

200 million shots are - just like 100 million shots were - very very good things, but goals are not "ambitious" when you are already on track to meet & exceed them.
First question is how far is Biden willing to go to achieve the campaign promises he made.
Biden says he plans on making progress on climate change, gun control, immigration reform, and voting rights.

Interesting that this is called the #SnyderCut seeing as Snyder does not seem to have cut anything from this film.
I don't *think* it's supposed to be funny that the movie is so pointlessly slow that half of it is randomly in actual slow motion, but I'm not entirely sure.
watching this movie reminds me of the marathon i ran.

If you haven't watched the One Child Nation doc streaming on Amazon Prime on the CCP's one-child policy & the draconian surveillance, repression, sterilizations, & forced abortions that made it possible (& how much of the West turned a blind eye or even encouraged it), you must.
One village midwife said she didn't know how many babies she'd delivered, but had conducted 50,000-60,000 sterilizations & abortions. "I counted this out of guilt because I aborted & killed babies. Many I induced alive & killed. My hands trembling doing it. But I had no choice."
The village midwife says she no longer does sterilizations or abortions & now exclusively works with men & women with fertility problems because "I want to atone for my sins, for all the abortions & killings I did. What goes around comes around. There will be retribution for me."

while we're on the subject... most time travel movies don't consider a key element - that our galaxy, solar system, & Earth are hurtling through space - so even if you somehow travel back in time you'd certainly find yourself in the empty void of space where the Earth isn't yet.
Sorry I’m trying to delete it.
The replies to this dragging me make being on this website worth it.
