WW3 Watch:


From the wires:

  • (Bloomberg) — China has renewed its campaign to keep commodities markets in check, as the government tries to prevent raw materials prices from overheating while it takes steps to stimulate a faltering economy.  Iron ore futures in both Singapore and Dalian tumbled after China’s top state planning body, the National Development and Reform Commission, and the market regulator summoned information providers to warn them against false price disclosure.


Covid origins:

  • The Antarctica connection: speculation mounts Covid-19 may have been in a lab at the University of Science in Hefei, Anhui Province, China before the outbreak.

From our correspondent in the Truth News zone:

  • Homeland security remains on heightened terrorism alert due to factors including: “an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of “mis- dis- and mal-information” (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.”
  • The trucker convoy has nothing to do with mandates.
  • Mark Carney says those funding truckers are funding sedition.
  • Ottawa City Councillor says truckers are guilty of treason and insurrection.
  • Tyler Cowen notes the convoy hasn’t received much attention in the US mainstream media for some reason.
