US becoming unrecognizable to Chinese as Washington lies, denies severity of virus

Even now, Washington's only strategy seems to be dumping its mistakes onto China and blaming China for all its problems. It's a shameless argument that has caught a lot of traction in the US, and such performance should have come from an ignorant country.

Pompeo's attack on UN Human Rights Council invokes loathing

Trump weirdly attacks Chinese press under auspices of transparency

Washington has repeatedly accused China of suppressing “freedom of speech.” However, US' move to restrict Chinese media outlets is inconsistent with its criteria of “freedom of speech” as protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution.

The death of George Floyd and a continental congress

As long as African Americans live poorer lives for no reason other than their African origin, the US lacks the moral authority to sanction other countries for allegedly choking their minorities. That is the simple message delivered to the US in demonstrations in Tunis, Nairobi, and Cape Town in the last two weeks. It was also delivered in Budapest, London, Paris and many cities in the US.
