      NATO delivers ventilators to North Macedonia
      The article is about the machines that assist breathing, but given the attitude of the West (and by extension, NATO) towards Macedonia, the irony of the title is remarkable. It would be funnier were it not so sad.

        Chinese President Xi Jinping said China will import more than $22tn (£17tn) worth of goods over the next decade. He has also called for a more constructive approach to an open global economy, and hit out at "protectionism". Mr Xi said China would accelerate efforts to reopen its economy after largely bringing Covid-19 under control. China is the only major economy to grow this year.

Mr Xi said China would accelerate efforts to reopen its economy after largely bringing Covid-19 under control. China is the only major economy to grow this year. “The Chinese economy is steadily picking up, as evidenced by the growth in the first three quarters,” he said. Mr Xi made the comments on Wednesday in a video appearance at the China International Import Expo in Shanghai. “China is the world’s largest market with the greatest potential,” he added. The Chinese President also called for a more co-operative approach to international trade. “The overwhelming trend for countries to move towards openness and co-operation remains unchanged." "All countries need to come together to jointly tackle risks and challenges, strengthen cooperation and communication and embrace greater openness,” Mr Xi said, pledging to pursue more free trade agreements. Foreign businesses and governments have long criticised what they regard as weak intellectual property protections and an uneven playing field for foreign companies in China.
        Well played.

          Singing, chanting, shouting, and physical exertion significantly increases the risk of COVID-19 transmission because these activities increase the release of respiratory droplets and fine aerosols into the air. Because of this, singing, chanting, and shouting are strongly discouraged, but if they occur, the following rules and recommendations apply: All people who are singing or chanting should wear a face covering at all times while singing or chanting, including anyone who is leading a song or chant. Because these activities pose a very high risk of COVID-19 transmission, face coverings are essential to reduce the spread of respiratory droplets and fine aerosols; People who are singing, shouting, chanting, or exercising are strongly encouraged to maintain physical distancing beyond 6 feet to further reduce risk.
          Interesting. I wonder if some will resort to the below method in such instances if social distancing can't be maintained:

            Seriously, if a man rubbed himself up against a woman like that, he would be the one charged for assault. Instead, when he slapped her, he got charged for assault. (Lesson: become transgender if you are a man.)

              Why bother with all that trouble. Just move to Tasmania and do this:
              http://www.macedoniantruth.org/forum...der#post180766

              Tasmania's transgender community is celebrating after landmark reforms to make gender optional on birth certificates passed their last parliamentary hurdle.........also allows people aged 16 years or older to apply to change their registered gender without parental approval, and clarifies laws that protect the right of an individual to express their gender without discrimination.
              If you say it is, then it must be.

                Tesla Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk, who has repeatedly played down the risk of the coronavirus since early in the pandemic, says he tested both positive and negative for Covid-19 and sought to raise doubts about the validity of such testing more broadly. Mr. Musk said on Twitter he was experiencing cold-like symptoms and, when taking four of the same tests administered on the same machine, had two results return positive and two negative. “Something extremely bogus is going on,” he tweeted late Thursday. “If it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others.” The four Covid-19 results Mr. Musk said he received came from rapid-response tests. They aren’t considered as accurate as PCR, or polymerase chain reaction, tests that typically involve a nasal or throat swab. His comments were met with a chorus of Twitter followers who shared skepticism about the tests, alleging high false-positive rates and widespread misdiagnosis. Among those making the claims were groups and individuals who have publicly opposed the lockdowns and other restrictions mandated by governments to try to stem the spread of the virus.

                  Scientist claim that there's a different mutation which is easier to speard, also it could be a weaker one as the death toll on average per the infected person is smaller than it was on Spring and Summer.

                    Five states impose border restrictions on South Australia as Adelaide coronavirus cluster balloons

                    Queensland has joined Victoria, Tasmania, the Northern Territory and Western Australia in imposing restrictions on travellers from South Australia, with an outbreak of coronavirus in Adelaide north now linked to 17 cases of the infection. Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk is the latest state leader to confirm the new border closure, with anyone returning to Queensland from Adelaide urged to self-quarantine and get tested.

                        ‘Great Reset’ trends on Twitter after Trudeau speech on Covid-19 hints it’s not just a ‘conspiracy theory’

                        The reemergence of a buzzword-laden speech by Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has social media users scrambling to look up the World Economic Forum’s “Great Reset,” previously dismissed by some as mere conspiracy theory. An excerpt of a recent Trudeau speech posted on Sunday has forced some to rethink their skepticism over the ‘Great Reset,’ long pooh-poohed as a conspiracy theory despite being the title of an actual manifesto for worldwide social change written by Klaus Schwab, the director of the World Economic Forum. Promising a ‘reset’ is in the works, Trudeau expanded on the enigmatic ‘Build Back Better’ slogan that has surfaced on the lips of politicians and NGOs worldwide. Initially broadcast in late September, the speech saw him pledge $400 million to global humanitarian aid projects. “Building back better means giving support to the most vulnerable while maintaining our momentum on reaching the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the [Sustainable Development Goals],” the PM said, referencing the UN’s Agenda 2030, another bête noire of conspiracy researchers who believe it represents the blueprint for global totalitarian government.

                        Apparently thrown off balance by the Great Reset being a “real thing,” viewers rushed to look it up, sending searches for the term soaring on Google. Self-styled Great Reset ‘experts’ took the opportunity to share their conclusions with the curious……while others merely opted to denounce the program. While some believe Covid-19 was deliberately unleashed to usher in the Great Reset, others think the WEF and the ruling classes have merely seized on the pandemic as the perfect opportunity to impose their plan on populations unlikely to embrace it if they had a choice. Many were cautious about diving down the Reset rabbit hole while acknowledging that an unusually large number of world leaders and NGO directors were speaking in similar terms. US president-elect Joe Biden’s campaign slogan was “Build Back Better,” while UK PM Boris Johnson announced months ago that his country would use the coronavirus as an opportunity to “build back better.” Even faced with the words coming from Trudeau’s mouth, however, not everyone was convinced Trudeau’s speech represented something sinister. In the text of his “Great Reset” book, Schwab calls for global leaders to seize the opportunity presented by the Covid-19 pandemic to remake society in their image and declares the world will “never” return to normal – even though the disease itself does not “pose a new existential threat” to humanity. Trudeau, Biden, Johnson, and other powerful figures like the UK’s Prince Charles have lent their support to the program in recent months, declaring the Covid-19 pandemic represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reimagine society.
                        Who knows what these oligarchs are cooking up. Surely when people began developing societies and civilizations throughout history they didn't envision their worlds being dominating by a bunch of "elites" in this manner. Surely one of the purposes of government is to secure freedom for those who elected them into office and not to be empowered to take it away from them at a whim. In addition to all of the money and power they yield which is tangled up in mass bureaucracies that enable them to lie, cheat, steal and impose certain agendas on the people, reading things like "the great reset", "global leaders to seize the opportunity", "never return to normal" and "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to reimagine society" should be extremely concerning for anybody that values their freedom.

                          Yes. It is becoming increasingly obvious there is an agenda building at the elite level. The first time I heard the WHO dimwit saying we need to stop global warming to fix the Chyna virus, I thought something was askew. It has become much worse now and I can't help but wonder when and where the next great war will be.

                            The question of freedom that we've spent years discussing on this forum in relation to Macedonia will visit us in the West. We've been posing the question of why Macedonians allow themselves to be trodden on, but now that question will be asked of us.

                            Its the age old problem of too many fools willing to accept slavery for the sake of "safety". But what else can you expect of people too afraid to speak up for fear of been branded a racist, homophobic, mysogynist islamophobe? If they can't do the least of what's required to keep their freedom, why on earth would we expect them to do anything dangerous?
                            If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

                            The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations...This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution. John Adams

                              I think we are well and truly there already...covid has shown us how submissively people are prepared to forsake personal freedoms to fight a virus that is only lethal to around 1.5% of an already (health and age) compromised cohort in society.

                              We've seen this in the unprecedented approval ratings of every state premier here in Australia...the greater the draconian measures that were implemented by state premiers, the higher their approval ratings soared and citizens everywhere were praising their leaders because they were apparently being "kept safe".

                              In other words, people have become incapable of looking after themselves, even when the simple infection control regime of hand hygiene and reasonable social distancing awareness was all that was ever recommended by the infection diseases experts...Instead government overreach has dictated when we can leave our homes, who we can visit, how we work and how children are educated...amongst other lunacy.

                              People have fallen for a Svengali like trust in politicians charged with controlling epidemiological challenges that has resulted in mass Stockholm Syndrome because the majority of people are no longer equipped with responsibility for their own actions and much prefer to be lead by their masters.
                              This has been true for the Macedonian's for a long time now, it seems the rest of the world has now caught up.

                              I think Freud best summed it up when he said - “Most people do not really want freedom, because freedom involves responsibility, and most people are frightened of responsibility.”
