This might be the perfect breakfast sandwich:
Food from China
I avoid it. They’ve been far more clever lately, “truth in advertising” on the package is stretched to the limit. Food originating somewhere else and processed in China is food from China. I always suspect its purity.
Despite my careful inspection of labels, I love Chinese-style cooking and search diligently for Chinese food in the US. Having knocked around the Worker’s Paradise off and on for over twenty years, I’ve eaten food in China. Some of it would gag a maggot. Some of it is maggots. Some dishes are quite good.
Water buffalo is NOT beef. I don’t like finding a pigeon head in my soup, though I’ve heard that it’s good luck. I recall having baby scorpions (dead) in a rice dish in Shanghai. They weren’t bad, to be fair. But my general inclination is to pass on the bugs.
There is some really excellent Chinese-style cooking in the US. I don’t avoid it at all. Most of the ingredients are locally sourced. They are not shipped from the PRC.
Is China Joe, China’s Ho?
Fox News has reported another article to add to the pile of Joe Biden’s shady dealings with foreign superpowers for personal gain.
We know about Hunter Biden leveraging his father’s name for special treatment in China and Ukraine.
Americans remember Biden using Air Force 2 as his personal Brinks Truck, bringing Hunter along to close personal deals on taxpayer fuel and resources.
What many may not know about is the Biden Center that operates out of the University of Pennsylvania (UPenn).
Slow Joe nominated Amy Gutmann, the president of UPenn, to be the next US ambassador to Germany.
The Biden Center has been largely paid for by donations from China.
Between 2013 and last year, the university allegedly received tens of millions in undisclosed donations from China, according to the National Legal and Policy Center, a conservative-leaning public ethics group. And the dollar totals dramatically increased after the school opened its Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement.
The NLPC filed a complaint against UPenn last year, alleging $22 million in “anonymous” donations from the country for the Biden Center and $70 million from China in total.
Chinese donations for the Biden Center increased by nearly 400% the same year he announced his bid for President. The Biden Center opened in March 2017, about a year before Biden announced his 2020 presidential campaign. If you ask me what the difference is between Hillary jet-setting on the taxpayer’s dime, raking in billions for the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Biden Crime Family’s activities, in all fairness, there isn’t much. Clinton, or Biden, same general scam.
More from the Biden Crime Family
(Link) Hunter Biden memos on a laptop recovered by the FBI directly conflict with the congressional testimony of two key executives at a Democrat-connected firm who asserted they did not deal with the current president’s son while working for a Ukrainian energy firm where the younger Biden served on the board.
The questions about the testimony from Blue Star Strategies officials come as the Justice Department is reportedly investigating whether the firm violated the Foreign Agent Registration Act with its work contacting federal officials on behalf of the Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings.
If you’re interested, follow the link to the article. It’s interesting, not surprising in the least. Will the US Justice Department follow the breadcrumbs back to Slow Joe and will that lead to impeachment for ‘high crimes?’ Don’t hold your breath.
Where is the Durham Report? Buried deep, no doubt.
Fear no Beer
After the invasion of Normandy, troops were in dire need of supplies. Although necessities were getting through, luxury items were not even on the list of things being considered. By luxuries we mean beer. An English brewing company by the name of Heneger and Constable offered free beer to the troops that just fought in Normandy. With the war in full swing, the only problem, and a major one, was getting it between the two places.
Since Spitfire Mk IX’s had pylons located under their wings, it didn’t take long for some creative minds to rig them and be able to attach beer kegs to them. External fuel tanks were also cleaned and filled with beer as well. The best part was that when these courier pilots landed, the beer was ready to drink. At cruise altitude, the beer was chilled by the outside air so as soon as the plane landed, it was time for a pint even if the sun wasn’t over the yardarm yet.
