There is no change in China regarding the “zero COVID” policy. Because of this, over 1 million people have been locked down in Zhengzhou city as orders came in for people to stay home.
The iPhone manufacturing hub of Zhengzhou locked down one of its most-populated districts to tame a virus flareup, with creeping restrictions throughout China underscoring the constant threat of disruption companies face while the country sticks to tyrant XI Jinping’s Covid Zero strategy. This new “surge” has infected 6 people so far.
In Shanghai, where 32 new cases were reported, some schools have suspended in-person classes. Entertainment venues such as cinemas and bars have temporarily shut down in at least five districts. Some neighborhoods are also under the stringent public health mandate. In certain areas, individual compounds have been barricaded with green fences.
Residents are not allowed to go out unless they need to undergo COVID-19 testing and non-essential businesses have been shut, according to a government notice, reported Bloomberg.
President Xi Jinping hinted during the twice-a-decade Party Congress in Beijing on Sunday that there is no looming change in the country’s zero-COVID policy, saying that “strict rules protect people’s lives.”
Observers noted how Xi seemed to deliberately avoid mentioning how lockdowns affect the economy, especially since investors have been hoping that they loosen their public health mandates. The lockdowns have been “costly” to the stakeholders, disrupting the supply chain of industries such as cars, phones and even Christmas trees. –Natural News
Even the Chinese seem to be getting sick and tired of the tyranny. A 34-year-old female Beijing resident told Al Jazeera that authorities have asked her to wear an electronic monitoring wristband at all times as part of the regime’s fight against the pandemic. “I have never put it on,” she said. “I have accepted lockdowns, forced COVID-19 tests and health codes, but this thing feels like surveillance just for the sake of surveillance. I am afraid that the COVID-19 strategy is starting to be about controlling Chinese people instead of fighting COVID-19.”

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
Covid variant BA.5 is spreading. It appears milder but much more contagious and evades natural immunity. Best to boost your immune system with new Z-Dtox and Z-Stack nutraceuticals from our dear friend, the late Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
