Today I turn my attention to China and Covid. I know, it’s been a while but these days I have three foci: China. Covid and conflict because I believe that all three are interconnected. Anyway, today I look why we have more reasons to hate China. Then I just basically ridicule the antiquated notion of saving face and I end with good news that four countries would likely stand up against China should China move on Taiwan.


So, Trump has been impeached but will not be prosecuted before the end of his presidency. If a successful prosecution follows his presidency then he will be out of “formal” politics forever. However, that might just suit him.


The Capitol Hill riot is on just about everyone’s mind but I wonder if people see that the very future of democracy in America is at stake. If Trump walks away from this one then anything goes moving forwards.


This post takes a look at the likelihood of Trump being impeached and convicted of inciting a riot on Capitol Hill. The impeachment is necessary because Vice President Mike Pence will not invoked the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office. Sad times for America.


In news that is almost unbelievable protestors in American have stormed the Capitol to protest the election result. Honestly, this turn of events is surreal. Meanwhile, China continues to block the independent inquiry into Covid19. Seriously, one year on and no inquiry.


In this post I take a look at some key metrics that demonstrate that China is in the ascendancy. I then cover what this week will hold for democracy in America and I conclude with a story about Chinese infiltration in Australia.


As we head into 2021 I’m making the argument that “everything is connected”. China’s belligerence, Trump’s insanity and Covid are all conspiring to change the world order and to undermine the idea of Western democracy. Trump should be gone, Covid will likely be brought under control but China will remain. The West must stand up to Beijing.


As the year draws to a close we should remember that China has murdered more than 1.7 million people. Far from being contrite, Beijing remains arrogant and aloof. Meanwhile we should all be counting down the days until Trump leaves the Whitehouse.
