BILL BLUM—Red-baiting did not originate with Sanders, of course. It has a long, inglorious history in the United States that began with the persecution of anarchists in the late 19th century, continued through the Red Scare of the World War I era and came to full flower in the form of McCarthyism during the late 1940s and 1950s. But while the attacks on Sanders contributed to his defeat in 2016, they proved less effective than the red-baiting of old.

Harvard illegally collected DNA samples in China throughout the 90s, right up to SARS. Lies upon lies and many cover-ups have kept this criminal conduct hidden in plain sight.
JEFF J. BROWN—Mrs. Xiong Lei’s exposé is long and detailed and I encourage you read it via Dennis Etler’s Facebook link above. It makes for devastating evidence. However, if you have time constraints, I went through it to glean critical highlights, below. What is clear is that for almost ten years, in the 1990s, before SARS, Harvard ran amok in Central China, collecting DNA samples from unwitting rural folk and there were no controls in place to keep it from all being sent back to the United States. One Harvard study alone in 1993 screened 200,000 Chinese. It’s easy to get DNA via skin scrapes or throat swabs from trusting volunteers, and a shipping box can hold tens of thousands of tissue samples at a time.

DIEGO S DIEZ—They aren’t talking about me, because I never heard another Latino use this phrase, but I searched it – “Latinx” is all over the place! Definition, from (why should we believe them, but why not, on such a dumb issue) the Huffington Post: “Latinx is the gender-neutral alternative to Latino, Latina and even Latin@.” This raises many problems, including what is a “Latin@“ – are Latinos supposed to digitize themselves or something? “It’s part of a “linguistic revolution” that aims to move beyond gender binaries and is inclusive of the intersecting identities of Latin American descendants. In addition to men and women from all racial backgrounds, Latinx also makes room for people who are trans, queer, agender, non-binary, gender non-conforming or gender fluid.”

RAMIN MAZAHERI—French unions have done a woeful job leading the strike despite having everything going for them at the beginning. The alleged superiority of the so-called “independent” union model – favored by the West but opposed by any country with a revolution after 1917 – is once again failing the nation, if maybe not their dues-paying members. The general strike is wobbling, and by January 24th the pension bill will be formally presented to the government. It is amazing rapacity, because presenting a bill amid such strikes is obviously rushing it into the safe arms of a system dominated by President Emmanuel Macron.

ALVARO GARCIA LINERA—Over several weeks, the police had shown great incompetence and neglect of their duty to protect the ordinary people whom fascistic gangs threatened with beatings and persecution. But since last Friday — refusing to recognize their civilian command — many of these same police have shown an extraordinary capacity for attacking, detaining, torturing, and killing protesters from the popular classes. Of course, in the earlier [anti-Morales] protests, it had been a matter of reining in the children of the middle classes — and the police were supposedly powerless to react.
