Crat factionalism on parade: armed Antifa and BLM demonstrators curse Biden and loudly agree with MAGA and Proud Boy demonstrators “F*** Joe Biden”. Keep a close eye on ‘Crat faction fights for loot and power. Without Trump as a common enemy, their attacks on each other will intensify:
The vanishing middle class; why populism is increasingly popular:

Google being Google:
The CCP at work:
It is hitting the fan: San Diego County CA reports only 36 cases of the flu for 2020 – instead of the usual 17,000:

Not just for investors: WTF Happened in 1971?
