I ordered the “free,” at-home test kit for Covid from the post office and then discovered that they are made in China (according to Reuters)—though presumably not in Wuhan, that would be just too ironic. Of course there are American companies that make the kits but America first went out with Trump. The feds under Biden prefer to spend our money overseas.
UPDATE: PJMedia says the tests are made in South Korea and are pretty much wiped out in below 36 degree temps sitting in mailboxes. Also above 86 degrees, but we’re not likely to get that high for a while.
Former Trump Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Twitter. Surprised they haven’t booted him yet.
“If our press were indeed fair-minded, they would expose the deceit of the Chinese Communist Party, but they’re owned, and they are bought, and they are silent.”
Not to mention on the CCP’s manmade Covid virus, which has lately spawned a variant.

UPDATE: Not to mention the most glorious economy in 50 years, cratered by the Chinese Communist Party’s virus and the ill-considered lockdowns of mainly Dimocrat governors and mayors. Even the NYT wants it back, but there’s little chance Pedo Joe can deliver.
MORE: One of the 40 (!) EO’s Pedo Emperor Joe has signed brings back all the regs and then some. So kiss the good economy bye-bye and welcome back to the Bronco Bama doldrums.
I voted yesterday, a straight Republican ticket, though the voting machine made me check each race. Annoying but done.

Trump’s Game Plan:
1 Identify himself with law + order
2 Avoid using federal force that can turn into Kent State 2 (the Dem dream)
3 Use the DOJ to prosecute & deter the radicals who were happy to riot knowing Dem prosecutors would give them a pass
4 Let them overstep
Plausible if the mercurial Trump can hold to a plan.
President Trump and Vice-President Pence plan to go see SpaceX launch a pair of veteran astronauts to the ISS station on Wednesday, the first launch of people from our soil since 2011.
They will ride in a Crew Dragon capsule atop a Falcon 9 heavy off old Pad 39A in Florida. Pity it’s not in South Texas, where SpaceX is planning to do launches.
With the president in attendance, and running for re-election, a lot is riding on this in addition to the two astronauts. Good luck to all.
UPDATE: Weather abort. Next window to try be Saturday afternoon.
