wait… whaaa?

When the Pooh hits the fan

I attempted to track this back to “Xinhua, the state-run media agency that’s largely considered the mouthpiece of the party”. Surprisingly, they ‘have no record’ of any such piece.

How often has this been discussed on the nooz or the “blabla” shows? I tripped over it by accident and it’s days old [3/13], soooo….

China could impose pharmaceutical export controls which would plunge America into “the mighty sea of coronavirus.”

Not the “Mother of All Viruses?” oh, yeah. worng enemy.

Foxxxx headlined this as “China hints at denying Americans life-saving coronavirus drugs”.
“Hints”??!? IDNTTWMWYTIM, you …journalists.

So Zhe Da Pooh is threatening to “impose pharmaceutical export controls” on America. …and that’s not treated as an existential threat?

and saying WooHan/ChiCom virus is?

Interesting Times…

PS. I looked for one of those Xhe/Poo pics. Boy! is Glooooogle compliant to the whims of its new overlords. Gives new meaning to “that’s what Zhe said.”

    For several years, my wife has been taking hydroxychloroquine for rheumatoid arthritis. Guess what I couldn’t get a refill for? My pharmacy says there is no stock in the pipeline and availability is gone for the foreseeable future.
    Chinks or Fed embargo?

    I’m expecting PDT to go after massive tax breaks in order to encourage businesses to pull their manufacturing back into the US.

    And the Dems will scream bloody murder but I don’t think there’s much they’ll be able to do about it.

    WhollyCrap! It’s like Toilet Paper, only for Rx!

    The fear, the chaos, and the panic is a far greater threat to humanity than a virus, especially for a therapy that may or may not work,”
