ERIC ZUESSE–All of these countries have the most-libertarian policies regarding coronavirus-19, policies such as the smallest percentage of people who are wearing face-masks in public, and such as the freest activity in crowds, and, generally, the least concerns about spreading the virus to others (such as to teachers, healthcare providers, and the general public). These countries — libertarian countries — have the most-relaxed policies regarding protection of the public from the spread of the virus. All of them are U.S.-allied countries. The first of the three lists — the list that’s unadjusted — includes two countries that are not U.S.-allied: Iran and Russia. However, Iran and Russia aren’t among the actual 12 worst, according to either of the two bottom-line measures: “Tot Cases/1M pop”, and “Deaths/1M pop”. Generally speaking (which means that there are some exceptions to this), being a U.S.-allied country usually reflects being a country that pursues libertarian responses to the coronavirus-19 problem.

MATT EHRET—As investigative journalist Paul Sperry rigorously lays out in his report, a major piece of the Russiagate puzzle was revealed when it became known that the primary source used by Christopher Steele in shaping his dodgy dossier was not the high level Kremlin insider which the world was told, but rather a former Brookings Institute employee named Igor Danchenko.
PEPE ESCOBAR—Yet Macron, the IMF and their “partners” are only interested in keeping monetary “stability”; seduce speculative foreign capital; make sure that the rapacious, Western-connected Lebanese oligarchy will get away with murder; and on top of it buy scores of Lebanese assets for peanuts.
ANDRE VLTCHEK—Whether elections were to be held or not, attacks against Ms. Lam and Beijing were planned to continue. They were clearly ordered by the Western establishment, “no matter what happens.” We will return later to ‘criticism of postponement of the elections,’ but first, let us see what was written just a few hours earlier when all major Western media outlets still thought that the elections would take place as scheduled.

P. GREANVILLE—The system’s unrelenting tidal wave of shit—from the economic meltdown to the pandemic, to the incomprehensible PC cultural wars, and the endless warmongering and media lies seem to be taking a toll even on our re·doubt·a·ble Jimmy Dore! Just watch his body language: It says, what’s the use folks, I’ve seen this already a million times, and nothing changes. He looks tired, and isolated. Facial gestures of despair replace witticisms. For a comedian whose lifeblood is interactions with an audience, the lockdown has been a body blow. Of course, although amply anticipated, considering what the Democrats are made of—pure, 100%, Grade A Made in the USA Bullshit, as George Carlin would have put it—this is still disgusting.
