                                                The Baibuting Banquet


《静观天灾人祸》

一场瘟疫动地哀,十面无语问天灾!病毒若是自人祸,蔓延世界谁制裁? 后代秦人从未悔,指鹿为马毁基台。华夏百姓翘首待,反腐结出硕果来!

《Watching the Scourge》

A plague moved with sorrow, and asked nothing about the natural disaster! If the virus is self-inflicting, who will punish the spread through the world? The descendants of Qin never regretted it, referring to the deer destroying the abutment for the horse. The Chinese people are waiting forward, and anti-corruption bears fruit!

《静观天灾人祸》




One might begin the story of the Baibuting Banquet with a dinner party of 20 participants in the city of Xiamen in terms of contrast. It was an open meeting of activists and rights lawyers on December 13, 2019 in order to discuss administrative issues. It aroused the suspicions of authorities as any dinner party with more than five guests is subject to scrutiny and could be considered unlawful. Several participants were arrested and an arrest warrant was put out for XU Zhiyong (许志永).

Xu was the founder of The New Citizens' Movement (新公民運動). It promoted "political transformation leading to democratic rule of law, as well as a cultural movement for the renewal of political and cultural traditions". Xu was able to avoid arrest for two months while on the run. In his last post written on February 14, 2020 (or the day before his arrest) he wrote "This nationwide calamity could only happen without democracy and freedom of speech,". "While the public are distressed for Dr. Li and their country, the Communist Party hides in the shadows and acts as eyes and ears. In their hearts, there is no right and wrong, no conscience, no bottom line, no humanity."

On the other hand, the Baibuting Banquet was held for the twentieth time on January 18, 2020 in the Jiangan District of Wuhan. This district borders the Jianghan District within which may be found the The Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market (武汉华南海鲜批发市场). The geographical closeness of the districts is mentioned because participants in the banquet might prepare their dishes from food found at the seafood market. In fact, the more exotic the ingredients then the more likely it would qualify for an original dish. The market was known more for its exotic, wild animals (which have now been banned for sale across China) than for its seafood.

The mayor of Wuhan was Zhou Xianwang (周先旺). Of course, he is not freely elected by the populace, but his power derives from his role as Deputy Party Committee Secretary. Zhou wanted to set a Guiness world record with the number of dishes and participants at the Baibuting Banquet. As a matter of fact, 40,000 families attended the banquet to break the record.

Three days before the banquet an organizing committee warned Zhou that a virus had been spreading in Wuhan. From his own sources he had been apprised of the cases and situation. The Deputy Party Committee Secretary said there is not enough warning and the event would continue. He becomes a figure like Trimalchio or "Thrice King" from Petronius' Satyricon who "in his drunken showiness leads to the entire household acting out his funeral, all for his own amusement and egotism."

Both Zhou and his superior Ma Guoqiang (马国强) who was Deputy Communist Party Secretary of Hubei and Communist Party Secretary of Wuhan were removed from office for dereliction of duty. Ma was removed on February 13, 2020. This was a day before Xu Zhiyong's defence of Li Wenliang (李文亮) in terms of freedom of speech.

There are currently three possible sources of transmission for COVID-19 which may be related. The first and foremost is the Wuhan Institute of Virology or WIV (中国科学院武汉病毒研究所) located in the Jingxia District which has China's only Biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) facility. The institute experiments on coronavirus genes. A team led by Shi Zhengli were the first to identify, analyze and name the genetic sequence of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) on behalf of WIV which applied for a patent in China for the use of Remdesivir--an experimental drug owned by Gilead Sciences. The team denies that COVID-19 which has unusual mutated genes of Ebola and HIV was designed by and leaked from the lab. It is conceivable perhaps that monkeys experimented upon might have been sold to the Wuhan Seafood Market.

The second possible source of transmission of COVID-19 was the Wuhan Seafood Market (武汉华南海鲜批发市场) of Jianghan District. While it sells seafood its notoriety and now one may say infamy stems from the sale of exotic, wild animals. Many of the first cases including those reported by Dr. Li Wenliang may have originated from the market.

Finally,the Wuhan Jiangan District Baibuting Community held its 20th annual food fest or banquet on January 18, 2020 which was just prior to the Spring Festival beginning on January 25, 2020. It is speculated that many of the 13986 entrants who submitted dishes may have visited the Wuhan Seafood Market to secure food. Over 40,000 families or more than 130,000 people participated in the event. It so happens that family units became the fastest way to transmit the virus. As a result, the Baibuting Residential Community in Jiangan District was hit hardest by COVID-I9.

It is said that a virus like that which causes the common cold or influenza doesn't want to kill its host, but rather to replicate or reproduce itself in other hosts. The same can be said of COVID-19. Its defining characteristic is its ability to infect rather than do away with its host. However, the virus can be quite lethal because it has mutated genes of Ebola and HIV which affects a small percentage of the population. This means the more people the virus infects the greater the number of those who succumb to it.

One might think of containment as a crude method to control a coronavirus. It may be happenstance or designed. For example, the purpose of a cruise ship is to provide a sense of luxury and leisure. However, by containing the virus like COVID-19 to a small area with improper quarantine methods leads by happenstance to a high fatality rate among older passengers who may not have before been in the best of health. That explains why on the Diamond Princess ship there were six fatalities among the 705 reported cases.

In a similar way, apartment buildings in the Baibuting Residential Area were built for the well-being of their residents. However, if older residents who were weak in body or health are forcibly contained in a building which was not intended to be a closed environment then the number of fatal cases increases. Perhaps only one in five people of a family of the banquet for families was infected with the coronavirus in an open environment such as the banquet itself or seafood market. However, when authorities improperly quarantine the family within their apartment inside a quaranteened apartment building then the fatality rate rises. This was the case throughout the Baibuting Residential area. In a more general sense, it applies to the quaranteened city of Wuhan, too.

AI, 5G, facial recognition, Smart City and Social Credit System were designed to control a population of 1.4 billion people. One might say that combined they form a grand scale re-education program. If control of an individual(s) is difficult then these technologies resort to containment and isolation.

While technologies such as facial recognition of people were not intended to control viruses such as African Swine Flu (ASF); nevertheless, they were employed on large, industrial farms of swine. The idea was to identify sick pigs by facial recognition and behaviour so that they could be culled before they infected the herd--in other words containment and isolation. The main problem with this approach is that the presence of only one pig can infect a herd of 1 million. The result was that it didn't reduce the spread of ASF in China.

These so-called smart technologies were also employed to control the spread of COVID-19 with mutated Ebola and HIV genes. Again, they were not designed to deal with a novel coronavirus which was most probably engineered in a secret,  Biosafety level 4 (BSL-4) facility in Wuhan under the aegis of the military. None of these technologies can detect the invisible, so to speak.The incubation period for COVID-19 varies from about 5 days to perhaps 21 days. Furthermore, some cases are asymptomatic meaning they present no symptoms of disease at any stage. This means that even if one case is missed then it can infect an entire population. The attempts by authorities to Red Flag individuals who show unusual patterns of behaviour (as recognized by technologies designed for another purpose) in order to contain and isolate them are bound to fail. These technologies only give the appearance of authority in order to justify what may be application of arbitrary standards to contain and isolate. They do not reduce the spread of COVID-19 in China.

Residents of the Baibuting Residential Community were particularly hard hit since many had been at the 'Ten Thousand Family Banquet'. The local hospital was full. Some patients were quarantined at a hotel. Many others were quarantined in local compounds; for example, Anju, Lily, Yikang and Kanghe. Finally, all Wuhan was forcibly contained so what ended up was containment within containment. The peoples' cries for help go unheeded. All they can do for now about the corruption is watch the scourge. Vice wears a virus crown. The thrice king crowned for life wears a corona.

Coronavirus: Wuhan doctor speaks out against authorities


Lily Kuo in Hong Kong


Last modified on Wed 11 Mar 2020 11.48 GMT


Ai Fen says in interview, which censors are trying to erase, how superiors reprimanded her for warning about outbreak

On 30 December, after seeing several patients with flu-like symptoms and resistant to usual treatment methods, Ai received the lab results of one case, which contained the word: “Sars coronavirus.” Ai, reading the report several times, says she broke out into a cold sweat.

She circled the words Sars, took a photo and sent it to a former medical school classmate, now a doctor at another hospital in Wuhan. By that evening, the photo had spread throughout medical circles in Wuhan, where it was also shared by Li Wenliang, becoming the first piece of evidence of the outbreak.

That night Ai said she received a message from her hospital saying information about this mysterious disease should not be arbitrarily released in order to avoid causing panic. Two days later, she told the magazine, she was summoned by the head of the hospital’s disciplinary inspection committee and reprimanded for “spreading rumours” and “harming stability”.

The staff were forbidden from passing messages or images related to the virus, she said. All Ai could do was ask her staff to wear protective clothing and masks – even as hospital authorities told them not to. She told her department to wear protective jackets under their doctor coats.

On 21 January, the day after Chinese officials finally confirmed there was human to human transmission of the virus, the number of sick residents coming to the emergency room had already reached 1,523 in a day – three times the normal volume.

“I am not a whistleblower,” Ai told Renwu. “I am the one who provided the whistle.”

Doctors show discharge papers after coronavirus infection


The coronavirus exposes the lie at the heart of Communist China


Carl Gershman (President of the National Endowment for Democracy in the United States

Contributed to The Globe and Mail


Published 3 hours ago


The spread of the coronavirus has driven home to the entire world the costs of “the rise of a Goliath-like China no one trusts,” says Jimmy Lai, the founder and editor of the pro-democracy Apple Daily newspaper in Hong Kong who was just arrested for an article he published in The Wall Street Journal. In that article, he says that everyone “must start asking something that the Chinese people living under communism ask themselves every day: How reliable can China’s political, social and economic institutions be when its local government leaders lie to their citizens and superiors alike?” By showing that lying is at the heart of Chinese communism, and that there’s no cure for the system “except the collapse of the party,” Mr. Lai concludes that the coronavirus “may prove as revolutionary as any event in China’s history.”

As the world tries to contain the spread of the epidemic, it needs also to heed the message coming from Chinese democrats, which is that we all have a stake in China becoming a more open, democratic, and trustworthy political system. As Mr. Solzhenitsyn said in that same Nobel Lecture, “there are no internal affairs left on our crowded earth.” In defending the struggle for democracy and human rights in China, we safeguard our own future.

Report: Spike in Chinese Pneumonia Deaths Sparks Coronavirus Cover-Up Concerns

Francis Martel

March 09, 2020


A Chinese funeral home director has identified multiple cases of “unidentified pneumonia” among the growing number of corpses his facility is processing, a sign the Chinese Communist Party is not properly labeling Wuhan virus cases and artificially deflating numbers, the Epoch Times reported on Sunday.

“Hospitals have the capacity to write clearly the cause of death, but they didn’t label it [clearly],” the funeral director reportedly told the Epoch Times. “The hospitals wrote the cause of death as unidentified pneumonia. It terrified my staff.”

The director reportedly identified only four or five bodies with the “unidentified pneumonia” label, which would be nearly twice the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the province (which currently stands at six). One mishandled body would likely be enough to contaminate the facility and infect all the staff at the funeral home, however, as health experts have warned that the Chinese coronavirus is extremely contagious and may be able to live in water droplets in the air.


https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2020/03/09/report-spike-in-chinese-pneumonia-deaths-sparks-coronavirus-cover-up-concerns/



It has recently been reported that high blood pressure is a prominent cause of death with COVID-19. Can one extrapolate that cause of death might misleadingly be attributed to high blood pressure or any other reason for that matter rather than the virus itself thus underestimating the mortality rate?

Proposal to mount a ‘gratitude education campaign’ prompts furious backlash from people at the centre of the Covid-19 outbreak

Party leaders shift focus on praise for city’s sacrifice after suggestion they should be grateful to Xi Jinping prompts torrent of criticism on social media

Two days earlier the city’s party chief Wang Zhonglin triggered an angry backlash online after proposing an “extensive gratitude education campaign”.

“[We must] be grateful for the general secretary [Xi] and the Communist Party,” he said. “[We must] listen to the party, follow the party.” [as reported in the Changjiang River Daily]

Wang’s remarks caused an uproar. Chinese internet users were furious that Wang expected the people to be grateful as they have paid a heavy price for the complete lockdown of the city, where the coronavirus that causes the disease was first identified.

Xi Visits Wuhan in Sign China Sees Virus Under Control


Bloomberg News

Updated on March 10, 2020, 7:55 AM EDT


A personal visit to Wuhan by the nation’s top leader has been anticipated as a potential sign that the Communist Party believed it had the situation under control. Xi’s government has seen a rare outpouring of public anger over both its initial response to the crisis and the muzzling of whistle-blowing medical professionals, shaking confidence in the ruling party.

In an effort to mitigate domestic discontent, China’s state media apparatus has in recent weeks doubled down on efforts to praise Xi’s leadership of the crisis. Through glowing commentaries and by seizing on early containment missteps by the U.S. and other Western countries to which the virus has now spread, it has sought to validate its own hard-line approach, including locking down an area of some 60 million people.

Xi “is in command of the overall situation. He has shown great foresight and insight, and is ready to make a firm decision. This fully demonstrates the outstanding leadership and extraordinary wisdom of the commander-in-chief, shows the heroic courage of the helmsman despite of the difficulty and dangers, and reflects the love of people’s leader to his people,” state broadcaster China Central Television said over the weekend.

At least 10 people dead after a coronavirus quarantine hotel collapsed in China Business Insider

Haven Orecchio-Egresitz

A hotel being used as a coronavirus quarantine center collapsed Saturday night in southeastern China, according to CNN.

The hotel was in Quanzhou, which is about 600 miles from the epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan.

There were approximately 80 people inside the building when it came down, 58 of whom were under quarantine. Nine people escaped on their own, but 71 were trapped, CNN reported.

Rescuers pulled 48 people from the rubble, but 23 remain unaccounted for, according to CNN.

The building was being renovated and workers called the owner around 7 p.m. on Saturday to tall him that a pillar had become distorted during construction. It collapsed minutes later, according to CNN.

Hotel in China being used for coronavirus quarantine collapses with 70 inside, according to reports


The hotel used for medical observation of people who had contact with coronavirus patients collapsed in southeastern China on Saturday, trapping dozens, state media reported.

By USA TODAY


Mar 7, 2020


A hotel in China that was being used as a coronavirus quarantine location has collapsed with 70 people trapped inside, according to the People’s Daily, Reuters and the South China Morning Post.

The Xinjia Express Hotel is located in Quanzhou, which is part of the southeastern province of Fujian.

The building collapsed shortly after 7 p.m. local time. Thirty-four people had been rescued by about 10:30 p.m. local time the Ministry of Emergency Management told the South China Morning Post.



https://chicago.suntimes.com/coronavirus/2020/3/7/21169256/hotel-in-china-coronavirus-quarantine-collapses


Probably a combination of overcrowding and "Tofu construction"




Normally speaking, in the past, I would pass through Quanzhou in the Fuzhou-Xiamen-Shenzhen corridor going either way. On one memorable night though I stopped on the outskirts of Quanzhou. It was not out of choice. I had taken a "sleeper bus" from Hong Kong to Xiamen. Since I was the only foreign passenger stopping off in Xiamen the bus driver decided to bypass Xiamen and go straight on to the smaller city of Quanzhou. It was one o'clock in the morning. However, there was more to this stop than met the eye.

It is not uncommon for bus drivers to have a "sweetheart" arrangement with taxi drivers whom they may be related to. In other words, they give each other business--even if it is contrived. That was the situation I was in at a taxi depot on the outskirts. The bus driver would phone ahead to his partner in low-level extortion. Of course, the bus driver was headed to the Quanzhou bus station to drop off his bus, but my fare did not go to Quanzhou.

I complained to the bus driver that he had missed the stop at the downtown Xiamen bus station. No explanation was provided. I was faced with a scenario where I would have to take a short taxi ride to Quanzhou and perhaps be forced to stay at a hotel of another relative or take a longer taxi ride to Xiamen. The quoted fee for the taxi ride to Xiamen was more expensive than my whole trip from Shenzhen to Xiamen!

In this kind of situation, when faced with two unpleasant choices, I look for another alternative. I said goodbye and began my walk back to Xiamen as any Chinese peasant would do. That rather shocked them. They had thought this foreigner was a patsy and pushover. They found out differently. I began my walk though with an eye on any of those drivers who might try to follow me, rough me up and steal my money. I therefore armed myself with a heavy stick. I walked two miles along the highway until I came to a toll. At that location there were taxies waiting. I hired an inexpensive one to take me to the bus station and then I took a local bus to my destination.








                      



Coronavirus: China’s huge migrant worker population bearing the brunt of economic shutdown


Migrant workers could lose a combined US$115 billion in wages as factories struggle to resume output and many services businesses remain closed SCMP


Sidney Leung



March 06, 2020


While there have been no official figures outlining the total nationwide losses, economists said that China’s migrant labour force is the most vulnerable to the disruption .

Ernan Cui, China analyst at research firm Gavekal Dragonomics, a consultancy, estimated that the outbreak could cost China’s migrant workers a combined 800 billion yuan (US$115 billion) in lost wages, an amount that will be impossible to recoup by working longer hours when business is back to normal.

The loss of working hours due to the coronavirus shutdown could result in a 5 per cent fall in income for migrant workers this year, Zhang Hengchun, a researcher at the Research Centre for Rural Economy, a think-tank under China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, told Chinese state media on Wednesday.









               


How China’s coronavirus crisis exposes the Achilles’ heel of Communist Party power



Minxin Pei


March 06, 2020


The brief but intense eruption of public criticism is a taste of how such missteps can threaten the social contract on which the party’s legitimacy is built

According to a New York Times analysis, at least 760 million Chinese, or more than half the country’s population, are under varying degrees of residential lockdown. This has had serious individual and aggregate consequences, from a young boy remaining home alone for days after witnessing his grandfather’s death to a significant economic slowdown.

And “frustration” is putting it mildly. The Chinese public is well and truly outraged over the authorities’ early efforts to suppress information about the new virus, including the fact that it can be transmitted among humans. Nowhere was this more apparent than in the uproar over the February 7 announcement that the Wuhan-based doctor Li Wenliang , whom the local authorities accused of “rumour-mongering” when he attempted to warn his colleagues about the coronavirus back in December, had died of it.

Indeed, the party may be highly adept at repressing dissent, but repression is not eradication. Even a momentary lapse can unleash bottled-up anti-regime sentiment. One shudders to think what might happen to the party’s hold on power if Chinese were able to speak freely for a few months, not just a couple of weeks.

It is not just the social contract that has been broken, but there is a break with the mandate of heaven.










                         


'Fake, Fake': senior Chinese leader heckled by residents on visit to coronavirus city

Lily Kuo

March 06, 2020


A top Chinese official visiting Wuhan has been heckled by residents who yelled “fake, fake, everything is fake” as she inspected the work of a neighbourhood committee charged with taking care of quarantined residents.

Videos posted online showed Sun and a delegation walking along the grounds while residents appeared to shout from their apartment windows, “fake, fake,” “it’s all fake,” as well as “e protest”. Some could be heard yelling, “formalism,” a term that has employed frequently recently to criticise ineffective measures taken by government representatives for the sake of appearances.

Is evolution fast-forwarding? Chimps seen ‘reading’ a newspaper

Global Times


January 14,  2020



The video posted by chinanews.com on Weibo, shows two chimpanzees living in the Xi'an Qinling Wildlife Park in Northwest China's Shaanxi Province holding a few pages of a newspaper and seemingly reading the text and looking at the images. In the humorous video, the chimpanzees stare at pages of the Shaanxi-based Huashang Daily while sitting on a car tire in their cage. One of them seems to finish reading part of the magazine-sized paper and then gently place it on the floor. A moment later it lies down in the tire and holds the paper up and continues to "read."

Park staffers regularly put a newspaper in the chimps' enclosure after a paper was accidentally left there and the animals seemed interested in it.


https://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1176775.shtml


Video: 35 seconds




This video is propaganda which mirrors the evolution of the cornavirus. It also ridicules any printed free expression of rumormongers. The newspaper was not accidentally left, but was deliberately planted for a photo op. Furthermore, the video distracts and deflects from any planned experimentation which was done with monkeys (rather than chimpanzees) at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to design a super virus to evolve from S type to L type over an extended period of time. The novel coronavirus may have been accidentally released in a breach of protocol from monkeys that were sold to the Wuhan Seafood Market.


Let me present an apparent paradox for my reader to explain. Why have newspapers and newspaper readers generally declined in a country which values free speech like the United States or Canada, but have increased in a country like the People's Republic of China which censors free speech?





                


An open letter to China’s new officials in Hong Kong: climb that wall!

March 02, 2020

Chris Maden

Chris Maden pens a letter to Luo Huining – the new director of the central government’s Liaison Office in Hong Kong, and Xia Baolong – the new director of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office in Beijing.

But the corruption here goes deeper than insider information traded for favours. The type of corruption which this type of system engenders is a corruption of the very purpose of a people’s government. Whether government is along the Western lines of being directed by the people for the people, or the Chinese lines of being by the CCP for the people, any non-feudal conception of government agrees that the government is ultimately for the people.

The well which the Liaison Office has built for itself engenders a feudal system, whereby government is for the benefit of an elite: the United Front, who manipulate your staff in the Liaison Office in such a way as to dictate government policy that falls in that elite’s favour. This is a perversion of the very core of the People’s Republic. Albeit with the best of intentions, the Liaison Office has been sucked into a system that is neither the people’s nor a republic.

So, Mr Luo, I urge you to come out of your well. Dismantle the nexus of power in the shadows between the United Front, your own staff and Hong Kong’s government. The worst outcome couldn’t be worse than it already is, and the best, though perhaps scary at first, may shine the light of unvarnished truth on the situation you face. Only then can you shoot Hong Kong’s troubles. I hope you succeed.
