The #CoronavirusOutbreak  has exposed the #Chinese  Police State. Remember, under Chairman Mao, 65 million died with many deaths swept under the rug. With the Coronavirus Outbreak, Xi & his cronies are playing the same game.

Shelves in Northern #Italy  are empty as Italians prepare for the #CoronaVirus . There have been 229 cases and 7 deaths so far. #Xi  and the #CCP 's wicked censorship and #Communism  are having repercussions thousands of miles away from #Wuhan .

@narendramodi  has bigger issues than the #TrumpIndiaVisit . #Hindutva  mobs are vandalizing a mosque in #Delhi . #ModiMadness  is all about religious divides. #DelhiBurningB #DelhiRiotsurning Riots.

#Iran just had its lowest voter turnout since the revolution in 1979. Only ~25% of registered voters in #Tehran  voted. The regime banned >7,000 reformist and moderate candidates from running. Thanks to #US  sanctions, the hard liners are taking over.

@NancySkinnerCA  has proposed a bill that would allow the gov't to seize any house that is left vacant for 90 days. This how private property is respected in #California . There is no problem that #Socialist  CA can't make worse.

Black market premium is the % difference between the official exchange rate and black market (free) rate. Since @SudanPM Hamdok was sworn in as #Sudan ’s new prime minister, #Sudan ’s BMP has soared from 37% to 94% — a vote of no confidence for Hamdok.

#Bitcoin is a highly speculative asset, not a currency. #Cryptocurrencies  need some stable unit of account in order to be considered a real currency. Don't be tricked, buying bitcoin is a fool's game.

This isn’t #Syria  or #Iraq . This is #India . @narendramodi ’s radical #Hindutva  politics have normalized #BJP  & #RSS  thuggery. #ModiMadness  only aggregates religious tensions. #DelhiRiots  #DelhiBurns .

#NamasteyTrump may stroke @realDonaldTrump 's ego, but his photo-ops won't change the fact that #India  is one of the world's worst protectionist countries. @wef  ranks India a pathetic 131 out of 141 countries in terms of #Trade  openness. #TrumpIndiaVisit .

#Modi & #BJP  have accomplished what no ruler in #India  could do in its history. They have established a #PoliceState . They have gone against #Gandhi  & #Nehru 's secular vision. #ModiMadnessMadness #ModiLies & Lies have turned Indians against themselves.

#ImranKhan is correct. #India  has crushed all #freedom  for millions in #Kashmir . Politicians have been arrested, communications lines have been cut, & even children have been detained. The resentment of innocent #Kashmirisis  will hau #Modit  & t #BJPe  .

In #HongKong , the police pepper spray an unarmed pregnant protester in the face. #Chinese  Communist control rears its ugly head in the form of vicious police brutality.

#Chinese police forcefully detain a woman because she might have the #Coronavirus . China's #Censorship  & lies continue to encourage the spread of the disease. Don't believe a word coming out of the #Communist  megaphones in #Beijing .

With no food, electricity, or medicine, hospitals in #Venezuela  are closer to the 1800s than 2019. This is what a socialist society looks like...

Watch as #HongKong  police brutalize protesters. #HongKongPolicePolice  have #HKurned  into a police state. This is the #Communistusual  line: censor & intimidate at all costs.

The cry of freedom: the people of #Venezuela  have rejected socialism and the authoritarianism that accompanies it.

Tragic: starving #Venezuelans  fight over meager food rations. This is the #socialist  dream; there is no income inequality because everyone has an equal share of nothing.
