China wants Trump in 2020 because he won’t hold them accountable: op-ed 7.7.2020 Raw Story
China’s leaders are anxiously watching the 2020 election, and while some observers may think China wants Trump out, The Atlantic’s Michael Schuman says that’s not necessarily true. “From Beijing’s perspective, while a Democratic presidency may restore a more predictable form of American diplomacy, that may not best serve Chinese interests,” Shuman writes. “In fact, four […]

Peter Navarro In Bonkers Interview: China 'Spawned COVID' To Intentionally Infect The U.S. 4.7.2020 Crooks Liars
White House economic advisor (and closet conspiracy theorist and unabashed racist, it appears) Peter Navarro had a totally bonkers interview with Ali Velshi on MSNBC Friday afternoon. During the course of the interview, he pushed conspiracy theories about COVID, accused China of manufacturing the virus and intentionally spreading it to Europe and the United States, and attacked Dr. Fauci.

Navarro responded with a random string of sentences that had nothing to do with each, which culminated in (mind you, the question was about a *trade deal*): "I want everybody right here today, as the day before America's Independence Day, to understand where this virus started. The Chinese communist party is making us stay locked in our homes, they spawned the virus, they hid the virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to spread the virus before we knew and --" To which Velshi responded: "Peter -- What are you ...
