Depending on what truly happens with the new Omni virus, I have heard that China may consider opening up sometime in April. As I see this as more of a political pandemic than a health pandemic, I am hopeful that things begin to open up allowing free movement without restrictions at some point. 

 

As for other predictions, I would love to see the Tennessee Titans get into the Super Bowl, the St. Louis Cardinals have a strong run to the World Series, and new life adventures with work and travel.

Canada calls for ‘united front’ against China

 

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has urged Western “capitalist democracies” to band together to prevent Beijing from taking advantage of their infighting over the profits from China’s growing markets.

It will come out much more on this front ..., i.e. EU is getting involved in SCS international disputes ...

 

 

  •  ‘If you hit us, we’ll hit back harder’

    China’s message is clear: ‘If you hit us, we’ll hit back harder’                 

     

    The economic and diplomatic crackdown by Beijing on a small EU country demonstrates how tough it is willing to be against those who defy it over Taiwan. 

     

    One of the most notable political dramas of 2021 has been China's showdown with Lithuania. Following the Baltic country's declaration that it would open a “Taiwan representative office” in its country, Beijing denounced it as a violation of its One China policy, specifically over the use of the word Taiwan as opposed to Taipei – which it usually tolerates. 

    Beijing made it clear that the move was not acceptable, and proceeded to downgrade its ties with the country not once, but twice, expelling its ambassador, a number of diplomats, and reducing relations to a charge d'affaires level.

     

 

" ... Lithuania ... is one of three Baltic states and lies on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. Lithuania shares land borders with Latvia to the north, Belarus to the east and south, Poland to the south, and Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia to the southwest. Lithuania covers an area of 65,300 km2 (25,200 sq mi), with a population of 2.8 million. Its capital and largest city is Vilnius; other major cities are Kaunas and Klaipėda. Lithuanians belong to the ethno-linguistic group of the Balts and speak Lithuanian, one of only a few living Baltic languages.

 

Dalian, the 2nd largest city in Liaoning province is roughly 10-times bigger than the whole state of Lithuania ..., i.e. DON'T you MESS with Chino ... one-state-policy ...

Russia’s tough new rules for foreign workers

 Russia’s tough new rules for foreign workers             

 

 

A new law that comes into force this week will see virtually all foreigners living in Russia, even young children, required to take a battery of tests on a regular basis to avoid falling foul of the immigration authorities, in a move unprecedented virtually anywhere in the world. Under the rules, which take effect from Wednesday, foreign nationals must submit a quarterly health certificate that proves they aren’t suffering from communicable diseases or taking drugs.

There is a serous discussion ... among the scientists, again, he he ... as it was .gov's cover-up, i.e. "top of the top-secretz" and it would cause the panic among humans, but the thingy, i.e. visits from abroad ... of the Earth, i.e. outer space are real.

These aren't a weather anomalies taped by the most advanced radars mounted on military vessels ... with F16 pilots' monologues in real time chasing the flying thingy.

Existence of gov.s' UFO research org.s' with huge budgets in different countries around the globe and what not ...

 

... to top all that with the precision used at the design of building the Giza pyramids (math & geometry, i.e. advanced architecture and astronomy, machine-like stone cut masonry and more ...), Gobekli Tepe in Turkey and other similar structures around the globe, Puma Punku & Tiwanaku in Peru, Easter Islands, Stonehenge ... simply couldn't be constructed by the hunter gatherers living at that time using primitive hand tools, i.e. some 11k years BC or even earlier.

This is UNDENIABLE proven fact!

Giza pyramid isn't a 4-sided structure like most regulars think ... It is 8-sided ..

You have to be familiar with the architecture to comprehend difficulty of constructing such a thing, which stayed intact during several historical earthquakes despite everything in the wider area around was flattened.

I disagreez ... on the .gov thingy!

They (.gov) might be puzzled, but there wasn't any hint at trying to explain or even just announcing anomalies in the air, strange patterns in the crop fields and many farm animals mutilations without the blood leak (figure this one out ...!), i.e. surgically precision cuts without the bleeding ...

The thingy was "UFO/UAP sightings are nutters' venue ..." promoted by the .gov. as a cover-up.

Even the plane pilots, ship captains and many scientists were discouraged by the higher powers to promote it ...

Suddenly, there are discussions in American Upper House about announcing of such strange events and confirming Earth is often visited by the UFOs.

There is a report made around 1960 or so (Cold War era), UFO was hovering above nuclear missiles storage facility in USA and made all missiles launch inoperable ... US army couldn't/cannot figure it out why and how missiles launch was disabled, but UFO was recorded in the air at the same time ...

All UFO sightings started mostly after the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear explosions in 1945 ...

Groups promoting Open-the-UFO-Books, i.e. scientists are stating reason for .gov's cover-up was/is mostly to keep usage of Earth's natural resources (oil) intact ('cause many are making loads of dough ..., i.e. follow-the-money thingy), but apparently alternative, cosmic energy is already known to some groups ... N. Tesla was working on that, but all his findings/inventions were also kept secret ....

Once you keep all that under the wrap, you/.gov hinders the human evolution, development ...

Very interesting and I am looking forward to further announcements ...

I read/heard, they're mind readers ... as per revelation from the UFO abductees.

 

The crop cycles isn't 'making' in our sense or word's meaning. It's caused by some wave out of UFO hovering above the ground and whole crop field kept some magnetic anomalies for long time afterwards, i.e. compass goes haywire there and similar ...

 

The funniest was an American nuclear physicist S.T. Friedman, when he was commenting on Q "Why ETs just plain don't show up ...??".

He said: "You know, I never talk to the squirrels in my garden. Sometimes, I might yell 'QUARkk ..', but that's it ...".  

He was alluding, ETs are certainly much more advanced than we are, i.e. the squirrels , since they can fly such a vast distances.

 

I am thinking, for ETs first appearance in public on Earth won't be much different than it was for us, laowai working in China.

Kids everywhere staring at me with open mouths, especially in the elevators ... , everybody's bumping with the shopping cart into my back at Super's queue and similar ...

China Punishes People Trying To Escape Brutal Lockdown In Xi'an

 

The city of Xi'an, the provincial capital with a larger population than NYC, has been locked down, Wuhan-style, for more than a week now, and it's residents are starting to get restless thanks to a shortage of available foodstuffs. But any citizens who hope to escape what's shaping up to be a brutal lockdown will find the authorities to be less than understanding.

Vice Premier Sun Chunlan said local authorities need to adopt more "targeted and forceful" measures and improve quarantine controls, according to a report in the official Xinhua News Agency. China reported 166 local confirmed cases for that day, 161 of them in the city.
