Video purportedly out of a Chinese factory shows a worker using a handful of surgical face masks to wipe his shoes, as nations across the globe struggle to keep up with the coronavirus pandemic. The disturbing video, reported by Taiwan News, surfaced Monday as China has been accused by many countries of doling out defective pandemic supplies, including defective test kits and shoddy face masks. Now footage appears to show a factory worker laughing as he takes a handful of face masks evidently meant for coronavirus patients and rubbing his shoes with them.
“Absolutely, we see this as an opportunity reshape the way we do business and how we govern,” he said during a virtual press conference.

☆ Brown Was The UK Labour Prime Minister During the 2008 Economic Crisis
The former Labour prime minister, who was at the centre of the international efforts to tackle the impact of the near-meltdown of the banks in 2008, said there was a need for a taskforce involving world leaders, health experts and the heads of the international organizations that would have executive powers to coordinate the response.
☆ Nationwide Mail In Voting & Ballot Harvesting: One Party Rule Forever
In a bill ostensibly intended to save American jobs, Pelosi and her Senate allies crammed a wish list of bad election and voting reforms, including mandatory early voting, mandatory voting by mail, and the legalization of California-style ballot harvesting.
