25. Bannon: The Coming Collapse of the Tyrant Regime.
First, Chinese state media attacked Mike Pompeo. Then, it ran a hit piece on Steve Bannon. Why do they target Bannon now?
It is reported that Bannon met with a defected scientist from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Is it true?
Will Beijing face a Tiananmen-like backlash over the outbreak?
At this critical moment in time, Simone Gao had this discussion with the host of War Room pandemic, Steve Bannon
24. Has the Outbreak Waken Up the Europeans?
In a sense, the pandemic is a world war. In the European war zone, a sort of Winston Churchill is needed, one who sees what’s really at stake at this time, and is able to act courageously and single mindedly to defeat the enemy in both the short and long- term. Besides the virus itself, the pandemic is a warning, a wake up call about Communist China.
22. Chance of Resurgence in China is Very High - Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding
Where is the U.S. at the curve right now? How would testing make a difference? Will China have a resurgence? Simone discussed these questions with Eric Feigl Ding, Visiting Scientist in the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.He is also the Chief Health Economist for Microclinic International.
21. The Timeline of the Coverup
In this debut episode of Zooming In Glance, a new format that we are trying out, we will focus on the Chinese Communist Party’s, or CCP’s, intentional cover-up. The CCP’s under-reporting and delays of information has caused the current worldwide outbreak. In this program, we break down the series of critical events and government actions leading up to the global outbreak.
20. China's Supply Chain Domination: CCP Directed, U.S. Assisted
Four months into the outbreak, the same discussion now points to only one thing: Does the supply chain dependence pose a national security threat?
If China cuts its supply today, in how long would the US be unable to buy generic drugs from its stores?
Rare earth is another vulnerability in the US supply chain. Is it easy for China to weaponize such monopoly? How did the rest of the manufacturing move to China, and most important of all, what does the mastermind behind all this intend to achieve?
19. The Tragedy of Trusting False Numbers
Both America and the world have been reliant on China’s numbers for establishing models for the pandemic. But just how reliable are these numbers? Caixin wrote on multiple days, trucks delivered 2,500 urns to a government-run funeral home. There are 8 funeral homes in Wuhan. However, the total official death toll in Wuhan is only 2500. What would the U.S. have done differently if we knew the true picture of the pandemic?
