The Evening Campaign Update
Great news for a great nationalist leader. – After what was for a while a nip-and-tuck battle with the Wuhan Virus, an improving British PM Boris Johnson was released from the ICU earlier today:
In a statement, a spokesman at 10, Downing Street said Johnson “has been moved this evening from intensive care back to the ward, where he will receive close monitoring during the early phase of his recovery.”
Johnson had been in intensive care for three days after his symptoms for coronavirus worsened. He tested positive for the virus two weeks ago and at first had only “mild” symptoms.
Britons braced Thursday for several more weeks in lockdown as Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s condition improved in a London hospital after three nights in intensive care for treatment of his coronavirus infection.
Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said Johnson was “making positive steps forward” in the ICU at St. Thomas’ Hospital and was in good spirits.
Bully for Boris, a father of four children with another baby on the way.
Here is what a congress with no Democrats or Chamber-of-Commerce RINOs in charge would be doing right now. – Japan’s parliament included billions of yen in its Wuhan Virus stimulus package that will go towards helping that country’s manufacturing firms to repatriate their factories and operations out of China. From a report at the Daily Wire:
Japan has earmarked hundreds of billions of yen of its coronavirus stimulus relief to go toward helping its manufacturing companies move their production plants out of communist China and back to Japan or to other countries.
“The extra budget, compiled to try to offset the devastating effects of the pandemic, includes 220 billion yen (US$2 billion) for companies shifting production back to Japan and 23.5 billion yen for those seeking to move production to other countries, according to details of the plan posted online,” Bloomberg News reported. “That has renewed talk of Japanese firms reducing their reliance on China as a manufacturing base. The government’s panel on future investment last month discussed the need for manufacturing of high-added value products to be shifted back to Japan, and for production of other goods to be diversified across Southeast Asia.”
The move comes after communist China lied to the world about the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in their country and tried to cover it up, which led to the outbreak spreading like wildfire throughout China and eventually the rest of the world.
“China is Japan’s biggest trading partner under normal circumstances, but imports from China slumped by almost half in February as the disease closed factories, in turn starving Japanese manufacturers of necessary components,” Bloomberg News added. “Japan exports a far larger share of parts and partially finished goods to China than other major industrial nations, according to data compiled for the panel. A February survey by Tokyo Shoko Research found 37 per cent of the more than 2,600 companies that responded were diversifying procurement to places other than China amid the coronavirus crisis.”
Once all the dust has settled from this COVID-19-caused economic destruction and human misery, the nations of the world, especially the United States, must move to decouple their economies and national security from the inherently dishonest communist Chinese government. President Trump has made his stance on this matter crystal clear, advocating for decoupling for many years before he ever ran for the presidency.
Any member of congress, regardless of party affiliation, who stands as a roadblock to measure designed to ensure our nation becomes independent of the pernicious influence of the government whose dishonesty caused this current crisis should not only be defeated at the ballot box, but shunned from decent society. This represents an existential moment for the future our country: We can either be a free and prosperous nation, independent of Chinese influence, or we can continue down to the road to becoming a vassal state subject to ChiCom masters.
This is a true moment for choosing, and ordinary American should keep close score on the positions taken by their elected representatives.
The Japanese government led by President Shinzo Abe is setting the early example: There is no valid excuse for America to be left behind.
That is all.
