jennamclarke Why does the Australian government allow China to buy bulk water at a lower price than it is sold to Australian people & DURING a drought no less? Farmers left to suicide & sell farms (to Chinese corps) by the govt. Aus, the Chinese food bowl!!! jennamclarke How much longer can Australia afford to be RAPED by CCP & infiltrated from within like a growing cancer? How many deals must be getting done or have been done under the table with Aus politicians? Trade for cash? Offshore bank accounts? Why the dairy farms, taxi companies...

jennamclarke it's EXACTLY this kind of attitude which has allowed Australian governments to sell out the country from under its people to the CCP & a be pussy whipped into being the next Chinese Territory!!! Count the years people!! Which other country leases a major port to the CCP? Huh? jennamclarke ummm has everyone kinda forgotten this is a COMMUNIST world power who in only a matter of years will have THE BIGGEST annual military budget in the world? = an UNSTOPPPABLE force!!! wake up sheeple. This PC WOKE BULLSHIT will have u & ur kids in CHAINS!

jennamclarke Nobody wants a cold war but most want to know the truth jennamclarke The term 'ally' is a little rich jennamclarke Jenna we do not tell China that we will stop trading with them so we have the right to tell them to wake up to our standards jennamclarke Another CCPChina presstitute trying to impress their bosses?

jennamclarke China carried out deliberate most cowardly diabolical trade war biological attack against USA New York and UK London with effect of subsequent collateral damage to rest of the world, truly unforgiveable. China has sights on Australia. China’s actions show they cannot be trusted. jennamclarke Bullshit

jennamclarke Build infrastructure and factories here , and poke the panda .

Shift from China supply chain 'inevitable' for Australia | Sky News AustraliaThe government says a shift away from Chinese manufacturing is inevitable as Australia begins to recover from the coronavirus pandemic.\n\nIndustry Minister Karen Andrews said the COVID-19 crisis has given Australia the chance to boost its manufacturing sector which will increase sovereign capabilities and help the economy recover.\n\nAustralia could soon begin making high tech devices, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals and food products as the nation begins to shift away from Chinese supply chains.\n This may be a big boost for India. ChinaLiedAndPeopleDied Awesome

jennamclarke Just like the USA, China is Australia's biggest threat. Remember when I say China Iam talking about the Government/CCP, NOT its innocent citizens. Have a listen to this 👇 from the Texas Governor. jennamclarke Close ally ? Are you on drugs ? jennamclarke Poke and keep poking the Panda. The “Silent Invasion” (Ref: Prof Clive Hamilton) has to stop. Yes it will cost us $$$ but in the long run it will be worth it.

jennamclarke The CCP need to be made accountable for the world people who lost their jobs jennamclarke Maybe our largest trading partner but your words are like those of the school bully- have power over u do not upset me- means we are afraid of China and they dictate the rules one should be able to be just and fair in trading and with ally but not to China

jennamclarke I doubt if Aussies can survive without China's money. Your freedom and ideology cannot feed you. Be humble and follow China which will surpass USA in future! Communism is also good for Australia! Be realistic and side with China! jennamclarke Isn’t that the paper owned by Kerry stokes?

jennamclarke Did u still it from my tweets? Poking the Panda jennamclarke Doesn’t mean we have to be scared of them. We asked a reasonable question & got abuse. jennamclarke CHICOMs don't want a partner. They demand compliance.

China 'running a global disinformation campaign' | Sky News AustraliaUS officials have accused China of running a global disinformation campaign over the origins of COVID-19.\n\nThey warned Beijing was using the coronavirus crisis as an opportunity to spread anti-American messaging. \n\nImage: Getty The pot calling the kettle black. Evidence points to the virus originating in the US who held the patent for it and helped to finance its development in Wuhan and knew about its presence there before the chinese as reported below by their close allies. China has lied about everything

jennamclarke Jenna is wrong - money isn't everything jennamclarke This guy a fool trading partner yes only because it suites them ally definitely not they are no friends of ours that's for curtain jennamclarke Ally jennamclarke A friend of Andrew Forrest? jennamclarke No you imbeciles we need a strong leader like trump get it right

jennamclarke Should be renamed the West China propaganda sheet. The paper is that far up chinas ass you can only see the boot laces jennamclarke China was the one who fired first by threatening economic sanctions on Australia. Wednesday should call their bluff and cut all trade with them. Call back all our industry and manufacturing hub out of China and do what it takes to rebuild Australia. BoycottChina BankruptChina

jennamclarke Youre right we should just let China get away with completely fucking the world over. jennamclarke We will not be bullied by any country there should be clear guidelines with every country do the right thing stop your propaganda bullshit jennamclarke Think this is the first skynews article I agree with. Well done jennamclarke. Too many Aussies watch too much Hollywood & feel invincible. Their xenophobic conspiracy theories put us on the path to economic hardship & war.

'Blaming China' has become a 'part' of the 2020 US election campaign | Sky News AustraliaContributing Editor of the Black Agenda Report Danny Haiphong says the United States has made “blaming China a part of the election campaign of 2020”.\n\n“Both Donald Trump and Joe Biden are trading anti-China sentiments and positions in order to leverage political capital and convince the public that they are more anti-China,” he said. \n\nUS President Donald Trump said yesterday he’s seen evidence the Wuhan Institute of Virology is the origin of COVID-19, not a wet market in the Chinese city.\n\nTrump also said China either tried to contain the virus and failed, or they deliberately let it spread across the world.\n\nImage: AP ChinaLiedPeopleDied ............ 60 page manuscripts of talking points for the GOP on how to divert blame from Trump to China. Good

jennamclarke We also must ask why Australia allows CCP to buy farmland and ports here. Does CCP allow Australians to buy the same assets in China? What were written in our trade agreement with CCP/China? jennamclarke The Western Australia May seek for CCP to buy its paper. jennamclarke Not Australia's Ally, not an ally to any one but themselves.

jennamclarke Will NEVER support or buy anything chinese again, NOT even a takeaway!! Abhorrent CRUELTY abounds there. They've Taken TOO MUCH from Australia & the rest of the world. We don't trust them, because they ONLY care about Money !! Will buy Australian-made Forever! jennamclarke “Poking the Panda”?🙄 It’s more important than ever to have a mature trading relationship with China, a relationship that does not sacrifice who we are and the freedoms we cherish. If we give up self respect as a nation, then how can we expect others to view us with respect?

jennamclarke China is not a close ally. China is a trading partner and a strategic rival of our most important ally the USA. This is important so try to be a bit more accurate please jennamclarke Yeh we should just bow down to them, great one Jen?! jennamclarke Hey China... piss off... we will change our lives to live without you... you wanna be careful as the world is watching. You won’t be able to buy ya wine from anywhere except North Korea !

jennamclarke No way 😡😡😡😡😡😡. The world deserves the truth. jennamclarke Yes, this is true if you have no principles or morals and worship money as your god. For all other people; we should not fear the murdering communist monster known as China.

BOMBSHELL DOSSIER: China ‘destroyed’ evidence of coronavirus outbreak | Sky News AustraliaA global coalition of intelligence agencies has uncovered evidence China “destroyed or suppressed” evidence of the deadly coronavirus outbreak as it ramps up a probe into the communist nation.\n\nThe intelligence dossier, compiled by ally Western Governments, was obtained by Sky News host Sharri Markson who has revealed the genetic coding of COVID-19 is nearly identical to a strain of virus found in the infamous Wuhan lab.\n\nThe dossier cites the scientists' work discovering samples of coronavirus from a bat cave in China and describes how the scientists researched synthesising a bat-derived coronavirus that could not be treated. \n\nThe document lays the foundation for accusing China of a cover-up, stating it deliberately engaged in the 'suppression and destruction of evidence'. Call us not surprised Is your Government committing treason by capitulating to China's efforts to destroy the economy through unlawful stay at home orders/extensions due to COVID19 / CCPVirus? This was said not long after the outbreak

jennamclarke Ally - I don’t think so ! jennamclarke It's amazing all these commenters on their high horse about a known fact that a large % of Australian exports goes to China. I don't hear any one of these commentators speak out against our weapons exports to Saudi Arabia, a country that cuts of thieves hands as a punishment...

jennamclarke Close ally? Hahaha. No. jennamclarke NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF THE PANDA PUTS US AT RISK ..POKE ALL YOU LIKE ! jennamclarke Close ally? China is not a close ally, china is a disgusting country -at the very least from a leadership perspective- with much to answer for. Please wake up and think!

jennamclarke jennamclarke Close ally? Is that a weird joke? South China Sea debate they want power helloooooo! 😡 jennamclarke It’s like playing poker, check what you have before lashing out on your opponent jennamclarke I think you mean don’t poke the Pooh Bear, not the Panda Bear jennamclarke China is a “close ally”? China is not an ally...

Coronavirus crisis has driven a wedge between Australia and China. Difficult times lie ahead for Morrison - ABC NewsAttorney-General Christian Porter described the Chinese diplomat's most undiplomatic spray as an 'emotional', 'short-lived' response. Two West Australian billionaires, however, took it seriously — very seriously, writes David Speers. How much tax do these billionaires pay? Australia should just cut commercial ties with China, its obvious they prefer to be Americas loyal toothless mouthpiece. Are they paying tax this week!

jennamclarke India should be our 1 trading partner India is an English speaking democracy with a massive population and a low-cost manufacturing base India would never stab Australia in the back jennamclarke Time to free ourselves from China before its to late jennamclarke In case you hadn't noticed jemma, THEY $%^ STARTED IT.

jennamclarke Love ya Jenna, but you need to take the WA mining glasses off 🧐 jennamclarke Close ally? Are you kidding me? Did Kerry Stokes write this article himself? jennamclarke China also needs our baby formula so THEY should rethink their threats jennamclarke Fuck the panda! jennamclarke China is the largest trading partner in an unfathomable black hole.

jennamclarke how come this is cold war? it is so good to control a media jennamclarke No poke the Panda, show them we are awake.

People surge back onto the streets in China as lockdown easesHundreds of sightseeing spots have also been reopened, including the Forbidden City in Beijing, as authorities sought to revive and repair local economies. People in world are sitting at their home waiting to finish the virus they spread and see, now they are roaming freely. is it good or a bad news? 🇨🇳China the Super Spreaders.

jennamclarke Close ally my arse. They would wipe us off the face of the earth as quick as look jennamclarke Poke. realDonaldTrump please drop bomb on Chinese communist party’s head totally destroy the vermin jennamclarke resit Yu art degree Yu silly woman jennamclarke China is not & has never been our ally 🤨

jennamclarke Mr. Assistan Editor- if you are feared of no progress in Australian economy without China , then its your problem. It’s time to move on ... we will build our own economy. Don’t be a paid journalist for other nation. jennamclarke So the assistant editor of a newspaper is an expert on diplomacy. Come on get real.

jennamclarke That maybe so . , but China should be honest to us if we are a alley and trading partner jennamclarke The premise of this story is that we ignore the potential major errors of the Chinese government because they are big. Absolutely no. I’ll happily to my grave rather than take it up the arse due to economic sanctions or violence from the CCP. I respect the PEOPLE of China though!

jennamclarke Yes you crazy people America sells us arms . jennamclarke WA make all their money from exports to China, she is just a puppet for Twiggy, Stokes. Farkkk china jennamclarke Almost all fake media are pro China. The reason is paper money...

jennamclarke How old is the person making this statement. I would think it’s the millenial rose coloured glasses syndrome speaking. jennamclarke fkchina jennamclarke Nah pandas aren’t dangerous take it from Steve! But snakes & rats you gotta watch for oi oi oi 🇦🇺 jennamclarke China should stop be so Fucking rude and take a bit of ownership

jennamclarke So you can release a virus that spreads around the globe, hospitalizing and killing thousands and get away with it, because we need you as a trading partner. jennamclarke Western Australia have sold out the country and sell resources to China who have used those resources to build artificial island for military bases and warships that intimidate the world

jennamclarke Allies don’t try to take over your country. Get lost. jennamclarke Great advice from a giggly school girl who’s take on foreign policy is no doubt influenced by her uni mates instagram DMs. jennamclarke Australian government should listen to the Australian people in what they want to do with China after the pandemic

jennamclarke Ally my ass wake up to your self🤬

jennamclarke Big deal ‘we find another’ jennamclarke Values and morals before dollars. Always. jennamclarke Funny how all these supporters of the murderous CCP are the unelected swill from WA, with their greedy snouts in communist China’s trough. WA do not dictate Australian foreign policy. China is NOT our ally... China lied, 250,000 people died.

jennamclarke Kick the Panda in its ASS ! Bye Xi you are a master criminal ! jennamclarke A WA newspaper go figure taking twiggys side .suprise suprise .not the west Australian has its own agenda a paper not to be trusted and very unAustralian siding with China jennamclarke Yeah because close allies blackmail each other.

jennamclarke Since when is China a “close ally”. We sell then IO and coal, some nice wine and baby formula. Some young Chinese come over here to study. That’s it mostly. China doesn’t do allies. It’s China. WA people are strange. jennamclarke We all know trump doesn't use protection jennamclarke How's China 'a close ally' to Australia, is jennamclarke mad?

jennamclarke Let them get their coal from North Korea.

jennamclarke Chins totally not follow the promises it gave when join WTO. it constantly use state power to compete on international trade. Constantly force technology transfer thru coercion. U call such country an ally n good trade partner? U just can’t get enough of sucking Chinese blood jennamclarke U out of your mind ? A totalitarian country who censor suppress arrest any of its own citizens critical of Chinese government, who constantly abuses human rights, who use billions of cameras to watch its citizens, u call China a close ally? shame on u. Ally with murders u r!

jennamclarke Australia Export a lot to China. Let's NOT make it Worse for our farmers and Fisheries. Yes China made mistakes bit I doubt it was international. jennamclarke Has WA split from the rest of the country and prefers CCP $$$$ jennamclarke That was so cringe watching that WA China robot talking on inmyview. A typical opinion from a WA resident heavily reliant on Chinese money and doesn't want to offend her communist supporting friends

jennamclarke Kerry Stokes puppet jennamclarke ‘Ally’ ? If that’s what a ally does (deliberately infects us with a deadly virus) then I’d hate to see what a enemy would do to us! jennamclarke This woman is out of her bloody mind! Probably she needs a bigger mess in the world than this to see the problem. How could such people become journalists? I will start writing a column for a newspaper tomorrow. It shouldn't be hard.

jennamclarke So this Jenna, on 'Jenna's View', reads from an autocue, with an absolute lack of passion, and seems to be telling the public to disengage politically, get back back to work, and trust 'diplomats' to go sort things out privately with China. What absolute nonsense. jennamclarke WTF china Australia's ally. Not in a million years.

jennamclarke IStill dealing with communist party CCP? Their SoEs purchased billions of medical supplies at early Dec! They knew 🦠 is human to human transmission but CCP lied to normal Chinese people &🌍on purpose! They are murders!CCPisnotChinese CCPLiedPeopleDied jennamclarke In WA we only have one paper that is owned by K Stokes so you would imagine the editor be backing him.

jennamclarke Please do not underestimate Australian people and the Australian flag. Our founding fathers and people of Australia didn't get a business loan from China or anywhere else for jump start Australia! jennamclarke If world will be cold they will fire jennamclarke Oh shut up.....they need a good poking...🤷🏼‍♀️

jennamclarke Australia is not an allie of China. Frienemies at best jennamclarke Australia first jennamclarke 'close ally' had me spitting my tea jennamclarke Australia and world will do good without china. jennamclarke Close ally? Is this woman sane?

jennamclarke Australia always has and always will bend over for China. They have no choice. jennamclarke Is China an ally? jennamclarke No, it’s time China learned jennamclarke I don’t respect this journalist jennamclarke English & Chinese transcript, with links to references, can serve as hard evidence: The Comprehensive Timeline of the CCP's Coverup of COVID19 Pandemic (6) CCPVirus COVID2019 Coronavirus CoronavirusOutbreak

jennamclarke Chinese communist party needs to be accountable for this mess in the world. They should learn that the time of dictatorship, censorship, lying, covering up, and modern slavery is OVER. jennamclarke ally? jennamclarke Maybe after China has admitted their errors and apologised to the whole Globe, but if they keep lying why would anyone trust them ever again

jennamclarke jennamclarke Bollocks! Prove your worth Australia! We will be behind you in the UK.

jennamclarke Kerry Stokes owns the West Australia so be aware who is paying the assistance editor jennamclarke jennamclarke you've gotta be kidding me! jennamclarke ‘Close ally’? jennamclarke China is NOT & NEVER will be Australia's ally. jennamclarke Australia’s sovereignty is far more important than Chinese money.
