China Rigging CoronaVirus Data – Gordon Chang
China Rigging CoronaVirus Data – Gordon Chang by Rory for The Daily Coin
Not only does Tucker spend a lot of time discussing what the lack of information coming from the Iowa Caucus means, he has a great conversation with Gordon Chang, who is a well respected voice regarding China. Mr. Chang discusses the “citizen journalist” getting the videos out of China that a lot of us have seen. He prefaces his discussion in saying “unconfirmed accounts”. Since these are not deep-fake videos coming out of China that means there is a high probably of the video being the real thing.
The situation in China, and now spreading globally, should play out over the next 3-4 months. My main concern is supply chain disruption. People here in the states are responding in the manner in which they should. I am seeing reports of N95 mask, along with other PPE, still being available at Home Depot and Lowes. This tells me that people are not getting to the stores ahead of this situation to make plans for something going wrong. You, my well informed reader, should have some preps or a good stash of preps in place. If not, now is the time to get busy – CLICK HERE for Chris Martenson’s latest update stating why now is the time and why you should get busy.
The coronavirus outbreak has already impacted the global supply chain and sent shock waves through the stock markets. But as the spread of the new coronavirus in China continues and causes even more factory shutdowns, the effect on global industrial supply chains could linger for years after it worsens.
Chinese industrial production in January and February is more than 20% lower relative to the average of the other 10 months of the year, a consistent pattern over the past decade. Some of this coincides with the Chinese New Year, which already has businesses around the globe scrambling. And things could get worse as workers get sick and factories shut down. Even manufactured items with a very marginal quantity of Chinese content will be affected as production is halted, and the increasing complexity of products means replacing specialized manufacturers is difficult, according to a report by The Wall Street Journal.
Wether you think this coronavirus is a hoax or if you think it’s real what is very real and happening right now are supply chain disruptions. These are going to increase. As they increase, over the next couple of weeks, we are going to see empty shelves in all aspects of retail – from food, to clothing, to hardware – you name it is going to begin disappearing from the shelves. If it’s made in China the flow is going to slow or stop completely. When it will return is anybodies guess at this point.
