The sprawling Chinese city of Shanghai is set to open a massive 50,000-bed makeshift hospital in order to house coronavirus patients as the country battles what appears to be a major spike in COVID cases.
Workers were busy this week putting the finishing touches on the ad-hoc hospital at the National Exhibition and Convention Center in Shanghai. The city already has multiple makeshift hospitals for housing tens of thousands of patients.
China at the beginning of last month began posting sharply escalating COVID numbers, with the country seeing its first reported outbreaks of the virus since April of 2020.
The country in the spring of 2020 initiated a severe lockdown of large parts of the Hubei province, including Hubei’s capital city of Wuhan, in an effort to control the spread of the virus; the disease appeared to have emerged from Wuhan itself.
The lockdowns there in early 2020 played a major role in the shutdowns that subsequently spread across the rest of the world, with national leaders across the planet eventually ordering lockdowns of their own in the belief that China had successfully controlled the virus via stay-at-home orders.
Shanghai was placed on severe lockdown at the beginning of April as COVID cases rose there. It has not yet been lifted.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We just launched a new GiveSendGo page. We also have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
