In December 2018, US authorities asked Canada to detain Meng Wanzhou, CFO of China's Huawei; in the United States, she has been accused of misleading the courts, fraud, and violations of U.S. sanctions laws against Iran. The subsequent imprisonment of two Canadian citizens in China, Michael Spavor and Michael Kovrig, and their charges of espionage were widely seen as Chinese revenge on Canada. After nearly three years, Meng was released from house arrest on September 24

Again we can see the familiar images: a sudden departure of the last Americans and panicked attempts of their helpers to flee. In Vietnam it was a conflict with communism, in Afghanistan it is a conflict with Islam. The failure in Vietnam was mainly due to the left, which sided with the enemies of the West, and the failure in Afghanistan has mainly been due to weak support from the Afghans. The main burden in the fight against the mortal enemies of the democratic West has always been borne by the United

Distinguishing Four Waves in the Covid-19 Pandemic Spread During the Last Year – Examining the Effects of Vaccination on the Last Wave
The graphs showing new daily corona cases and new daily deaths exhibit distinct and separate peaks in all countries over the last year of the pandemic, corresponding to several waves of Covid-19 infection (see Worldometers under individual countries). In many countries, the 1st wave occurred around April, the 2nd around August, the 3rd around November 2020, and the 4th around January 2021 (see Table 1).

Our Chinese Syndrome and Our Chinese Future – It Is Better Not to Be Born or Reincarnated into the World Led by the Communist China
There is hardly another example in history of so rapid rise of power as China has shown in the last thirty years; its share of world gross product has increased fifteenfold and is now 19%, putting China second only to the United States. China has gained control of raw materials in many Third World countries. Even in the Asian part of Russia, Chinese entrepreneurs have a free hand in the use of raw materials, and the Chinese will one day easily become the majority there. But even in the United States,

Data from Czechia, Israel, Sweden, and U.S. Show an Exponential Growth of the COVID-19 Mortality with Age – the Fraction of People Dying with COVID-19 Increases About Three Times for Every Ten Years of Age
The published data on Covid deaths in age groups (ten years range) in four countries (Czechia, Israel, Sweden, U.S.) have been combined with the age distributions in said countries (see Table 9). It can be seen that the deaths numbers (absolute, not recalculated per million people) seem to form approximately geometric series with a common ratio of between 2 and 4 till the age of about 75. More consistent geometric series are obtained till still higher ages by recalculating the deaths numbers in each

We Are Probably the Only Intelligent Observers in Our Universe, Thus Being Special Despite the Copernican Principle
A quick estimation of the number of human-like intelligent civilizations in our universe might go as follows. There are about (the word “about” will be omitted below, but should be assigned to every number) 200 billion stars in our galaxy, and there are 200 billion galaxies in the space from which the light has been able to reach us since the Big Bang 14 billion years ago. So there are 1022 stars.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus epidemic of 2019, I have been collecting publications from the daily press and professional journals on the disease and the coronavirus. At the end of July, I summarized information on the origin and properties of the virus and on its spread around the world, on morbidity and mortality values, on the response of different countries and the course of the disease in half a year, and from available data I further estimated the values of actual lethality and the infection rate in different countries (see Corona Summary, shortly CorSum or CS).

China Is Our Carthage – China's Influence Will Have to Be Weakened in Order for the West to Survive as a Democratic and Humane Culture
Let's recall China's modern history. Starting from the end, we can see that China has become the world's second richest country in the 21st century (2000-2020), thanks to the hybrid blend of communist terror with ruthlessness of early capitalism, resulting in ecologically devastating its own territories and reducing the quality of consumer goods around the world. During the preceding twenty-years (1980-2000), a gleam of hope for democratic development appeared, but it was stamped out after

5’-UTR of Coronaviruses Mutates Twice Slower Than the Whole Genome, SARS-CoV-2 Does Not Differ in This Respect
Coronaviruses, particularly betacoronaviruses, belong among usual causative agents of the common cold and respiratory infection symptoms, together with common cold picornavirus, influenza viruses, adenoviruses, human respiratory syncytial virus, and parainfluenza viruses. Newly appeared strains caused epidemics of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), virus SARS-CoV-1 in 2003 and virus SARS-CoV-2 in 2019 (reviewed here).

A Half-Year Summary of COVID-19 Pandemic – Spread, Course, Comparing Countries, Handling in the World, SARS-Cov-2 Virus and Its Origin, Consequences, and the Way Out
Spreading of the epidemic over the globe – at one look
The WHO started to report about the coronavirus on 21 January 2020, when 309 cases were allegedly diagnosed in China, including 6 deaths; no cases in other countries were reported by then. The numbers of diagnosed cases in 15 selected countries over the first half of the year 2020 are presented in Table 1, which further includes the numbers of new daily cases, the sum of deaths and new daily deaths (extracted from the WHO web here), as well as the number of tests (extracted from the

Checkmating Black Is Prohibited – Google's Censorship of Chess Commentaries Suggests That Western Democracy Is Close to Checkmate
Croatian chess player Antonio Radić publishes his comments on chess games on a Youtube chess channel under the pseudonym "agadmator"; his podcasts are highly popular. For example, his "The Greatest Queen Sacrifice in History" has over 4.5 million visits, and all of his videos together have already received 275 million visits (here).

The Torment of Open Chernobyl Wounds – Hundreds of Thousands Died but Thousands Continued to Writhe in Pain
At the end of April, millions of former Soviet citizens commemorate the explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor on April 26, 1986. The families of 6,000 Tajiks who were suddenly removed from Tajikistan in the spring of 1989 serve as an example; the young men were taken to "help build houses in Russia" and they reappeared only in the autumn of that year – changed beyond recognition (here). The Soviets took the young Tajiks completely unexpectedly and under false pretenses; the men found

The numbers of diseased and deceased with corona to a certain date can be found in the WHO website, and the numbers of performed tests in the WORLDOMETER site. In the following table, I have extracted the data for April 14 and adjusted them to reflect the population size for the majority of East Asian, West European, and North American countries. The table comprises the numbers of reported positive cases, death, and performed tests, as well as these values recalculated per 10 million people, which is an approximate population of Sweden, Portugal, Czechia, Hungary, Greece, Austria, Israel, Switzerland, and Hong Kong.

Democratic candidates of 2016 and 2020 have been involved in criminal activities, but instead of investigating Clintons and Bidens, Republican candidate Trump has been defamed in both cases
In 2009, FBI found that Moscow’s officials in contact with U.S. uranium-involved companies were violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, as being involved in money laundering, extortion and bribery. The officials helped Russian president Vladimir Putin, allegedly world’s richest man, in his nuclear ambitions inside the U.S. However, the Department of Justice did not bring charges, and let the Obama administration make critical decisions in the uranium business, which benefited Putin’s Russia

Almost Sincere Regret After 75 Years – Representatives of 44 States in Jerusalem Remembered the Liberation of Auschwitz – Both What Was Said and What Was Not Were Important
At the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, the fifth Holocaust Forum was held in Jerusalem on January 23, attended by representatives of 44 states, including 6 kings and princes, 26 presidents and 4 prime ministers. During the forum, the tragic fate of the Holocaust victims mingled with the political issues of today, although some of them appeared only in hints and some remained concealed.

Deep State Against Bibi Netanyahu – Leftwing Elites Deep-Rooted in the Israeli Institutions are not Satisfied with the Election Results
The term "deep state" denotes institutions and groups of people deeply embedded in the structure of the state and seeking to maintain a certain policy independently of democratic elections. It is a state within a state. This is the way, the American commentator and columnist Michael Savage related to the globalist elite in the United States that opposed Donald Trump. In Trump’s War, Savage included among said progressive elite a layer of civil servants in defense and security, social engineers

India’s Statue of Unity – the Highest Statue in the World History – Shows That Gandhi Is Less Popular in India Than in the World
Gandhi has gained worldwide reputation with his efforts to promote Indian independence from Britain without the use of violence. Thanks to his mother, he was heavily influenced by Jainism, which rejects violence against all creatures and promotes asceticism. Gandhi was famous for his long protest hunger strikes and public appearances only with a piece of cloth around his loins. From my childhood, I remember a statuette we had for unclear reasons at home, a half-naked Gandhi, cross-legged, ten

Trump Speaks in the U.N. General Assembly – a Human Among Diplomats and Dictators – and Every Normal Human Understands Him
On September 25, 2018, the president of the U.S. spoke to the General Assembly of the U.N. Without pretending modesty, Trump noted the fact that in less than two years, his administration accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of the country. His opponents in the audience, probably European, demonstratively laughed, but Trump dispassionately smiled and noted that he “did not expect that reaction, but that’s okay”, which aroused applause. The fact is that

Climate Change on One Foot – Concise Arguments Against the Hypothesis of Human-Caused Global Warming
The actions against global warming are led by lobby groups organized under the UN and its climate arm – IPCC, being enthusiastically supported by media, entertainers, politicians, and activists involved in social studies. Many scientists and technically educated people understand that the actions are unreasonable and harmful, but they are often caught out by friends who ask: “How come you do not believe that human-caused warming exists? Have all the countries in the world not signed the Paris agreement on the climate change? Is there not a consensus among 97% of scientists about the warming?” We should be ready to respond to our friends.

North Korea – the Most Inhuman State in History – with the Most Totalitarian Control of the Citizens – 20 Million Slaves
A night satellite photo of Korea shows a sharp border between the light South and the dark North. The North has 30 times lower domestic product per capita than the South, and even the little it has is invested to developing chemical and nuclear weapons. The recent provocations with shooting rockets over Japan would constitute casus belli in less timid times.

From the End of Vitalism in 1828 to Overtaking Control Over the Evolution and Nearly over Our Fate in 2128
We are witnesses of an exponential increase – explosion – of our knowledge about ourselves, about our origin and about the substance we are made of. No sooner we have completely recognized our structure, than we are starting to change it. There is still a lot to learn about the mechanisms shaping the quality and length of our lives, but we start to edit our DNA and our future as well. The dreams of ancient alchemists about the transmutation of base metals into noble ones have come true, and now

The Biggest Patent Litigation in Biotechnology over CRISPR/Cas9 – a Technology for Editing of Our DNA Will Enable Editing of Our Future
CRISPR (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is a region in the genome of most archea and of about a half of all bacteria, playing a role in a cellular defense system against viruses. The region integrates samples of the invading viral DNA, to be later used for the virus recognition and destruction. Adjacent to the CRISPR region, there is CAS region (Crisper Associated System or Crisper ASsociated) coding for nucleases for cleaving the viral DNA. A nucleoprotein complex derived
