In my viewpoint, COVID-19 is an act of war by China. Most won’t voice that concern but it doesn’t make it any less true. I agree with Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) who told “Hannity” Wednesday that China’s leadership “must be made to pay the price” if it is determined that the coronavirus pandemic originated in a Wuhan laboratory. We should be on a war footing over this as I believe that it was not an accident but intentional. The virus spreading benefited China greatly… it bumped violent protests in Hong Kong from the headlines, squelched the fact that their economy is in serious trouble and rebuffed Trump’s tariffs as a means to curb China’s economic warfare against America.
Cotton stated: “Since January, I’ve said it seems to be highly coincidental that this very contagious virus originated just a few hundred yards or maybe a couple miles from laboratories where the Chinese Communist Party researches coronaviruses,” Cotton said. “Bret Baier’s reporting tonight, if it bears out, shows that the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for every single death, every job lost, every retirement nest egg lost from this coronavirus, and Xi Jinping and his Chinese Communist apparatchiks must be made to pay the price. If that turns out to be true.” Of course, it’s true and it should be treated as nothing less than an act of war.
Why should China care if some of their citizens die if it serves a greater goal for the communists who are using this emergency to grab more global power and to further their megalomaniacal global conquest desires? The virus also gave the communist left in America the opportunity to further their communist goals, to do a two-step on the Constitution and to shred our rights state by state. Look at the progressive governors in states such as Nevada, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Michigan along with many others and what they have done under cover of never letting an emergency go to waste. Banning gatherings of more than ten at a time; prohibiting attending church even in your car by fining attendees, recording their license plates and throwing down nails in church parking lots; disallowing gathering with family members for Easter; blocking the use of drugs that cure the disease; destroying the economy of their individual states by shutting down all business… I could go on and on. This feels orchestrated to me. Americans know this is wrong and are fed up with it.

Meanwhile, the Beijing government may have engaged in the “costliest government coverup of all time.” Cotton told host Sean Hannity he wants to open American courts for lawsuits against Chinese leaders, adding “I have legislation that would modify the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act [of 1976] to do just that.” Good for him. That’s exactly what should be done.
Next, America should move ALL manufacturing out of China. Having it there in the first place was a monstrous mistake. The majority of our pharmaceuticals are made there now which is a massive security risk. In fact, China threatened to withhold medicine from us in the midst of this mess. A “massive shift” of our manufacturing out of China “would be devastating to the Chinese economy.” I’m good with that.
“Just imagine,” Cotton said, “not just in America, but all around the world, the demands for accountability and consequences on the Chinese Communist Party and Chairman Xi if it turns out that Chinese negligence and then Chinese corruption and treachery was responsible for unleashing this pandemic on the world.” Imagine it because it is true.
Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts stated yesterday during the Coronavirus Task Force press briefing that U.S. officials have “high confidence” that the coronavirus leaked from a lab in Wuhan.
“Multiple sources are telling Fox News today that the United States government now has high confidence that while the coronavirus is a naturally occurring virus, it emanated from a virology lab in Wuhan,” Roberts said. “That because of [lax] safety protocols, an intern was infected who later infected her boyfriend, and then went to the wet market in Wuhan where it began to spread.”
“Does that correspond with what you have heard from officials?” Roberts asked.
“Well, I don’t want to say that John, but I will tell you, more and more we’re hearing the story and we’ll see,” Trump responded.
They are deflecting what is really being whispered out there that this was a bioweapon. It was not an accident. The Chinese engineered it carefully and then systematically released it. Many of their own citizens are saying just that by the way while we play diplomatic games to cover our own behinds instead of coming right out and charging the communist Chinese with war crimes.
President Trump won’t discuss this right now and he shouldn’t. We are talking about national security and military issues that are very sensitive here. I’m sure he is quite aware of what is going on and who is to blame.
From The Daily Wire:
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that the State Department had repeatedly warned that the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) was not properly managed and that there were serious concerns about coronavirus research that was taking place at the lab that involved bats.
“In January 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing took the unusual step of repeatedly sending U.S. science diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV), which had in 2015 become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4),” The Washington Post’s Josh Rogin reported Tuesday. “What the U.S. officials learned during their visits concerned them so much that they dispatched two diplomatic cables categorized as Sensitive But Unclassified back to Washington.”
It is important to note that The Washington Post’s report indicated that there is no credible information that exists that suggests that the virus was created or engineered, which is not the same thing as saying that it did not come from a lab.
One of the cables sent by the State Department in January 2018 said, “During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.”
The Post added:
There are similar concerns about the nearby Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention lab, which operates at biosecurity level 2, a level significantly less secure than the level-4 standard claimed by the Wuhan Insititute of Virology lab, Xiao said. That’s important because the Chinese government still refuses to answer basic questions about the origin of the novel coronavirus while suppressing any attempts to examine whether either lab was involved.
Sources familiar with the cables said they were meant to sound an alarm about the grave safety concerns at the WIV lab, especially regarding its work with bat coronaviruses. The embassy officials were calling for more U.S. attention to this lab and more support for it, to help it fix its problems.
One U.S. official told The Post, “The cable was a warning shot. They were begging people to pay attention to what was going on.”
“The idea that it was just a totally natural occurrence is circumstantial,” the official continued. “The evidence it leaked from the lab is circumstantial. Right now, the ledger on the side of it leaking from the lab is packed with bullet points and there’s almost nothing on the other side.”
I have no love or respect for The Washington Post. They are painting this as an accident and Fox News is following that storyline. I won’t do any such thing here because I am all but certain this was a form of biowarfare. But regardless, if it came from their labs, China bears the responsibility for thousands of deaths and the destruction of our economy. Our debt to them should be written off. That in itself would bring on war with China but it is what should happen.
So Bill Gates is unhappy that USA halted our funding for the WHO, after they parroted CCP propaganda & aided China’s Wuhan cover-up. Well, quick math: USA funds $400m/yr to WHO & Gates is worth $103bn…he could personally fund the US share for 257 years! https://t.co/UoqaoHfWYz

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) agrees on the issue that China should have to pay a price here. He told Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum on Wednesday that there must be “consequences” for communist China’s alleged silencing of whistleblowers who tried to warn the world about the outbreak of the coronavirus.
“There needs to be accountability. Look, first we have to defeat this crisis,” Cruz said. “But afterwards, there needs to be a careful accountability as to the communist government’s in China’s responsibility, both for covering it up and suppressing it, that we know, and also whether the communist government played an inadvertent part in the outbreak itself.”
“There were two State Department cables that you referenced that occurred early on that described two different labs in Wuhan, within miles where the outbreak occurred that were studying bat coronaviruses, and the Chinese government does not want to answer questions about whether they were studying the novel coronavirus and whether it was an accidental escape from their own labs,” Cruz continued. “There needs to be real accountability because the State Department was worried about the threat of a pandemic from these labs before the pandemic occurred and China. That may be part of the cover-up, they don’t want to answer basic questions.”
Cruz added, “I think the United States, I think the world community, needs to insist on accountability and consequences for China’s responsibility here.” Yes, they do.
Fox News is reporting on the evidence building that this did come from a Chinese lab in Wuhan:
“COVID-19 originated in a Wuhan laboratory not as a bioweapon, but as part of China’s effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States, multiple sources who have been briefed on the details of early actions by China’s government and seen relevant materials tell Fox News,” Fox News reported. “The sources believe the initial transmission of the virus was bat-to-human, and that ‘patient zero’ worked at the laboratory, then went into the population in Wuhan.”
“Documents detail early efforts by doctors at the lab and early efforts at containment. The Wuhan wet market initially identified as a possible point of origin never sold bats, and the sources tell Fox News that blaming the wet market was an effort by China to deflect blame from the laboratory, along with the country’s propaganda efforts targeting the U.S. and Italy,” Fox News continued. “China ‘100 percent’ suppressed data and changed data, the sources tell Fox News. Samples were destroyed, contaminated areas scrubbed, some early reports erased, and academic articles stifled.”
A U.S. official told Fox News that this was potentially the “costliest government coverup of all time.”
Sources also tell Fox News that the World Health Organization (WHO) was complicit from the beginning in helping China cover its tracks. Trump was right to cut off their funding regardless of how loudly Bill Gates screams over it. Let him fund the communist propagandists… he’ll feel right at home as a Marxist and eugenicist.
You can see Fox’s timeline on this here. The Chinese delayed disclosing the outbreak for six days and held a gathering for thousands there where it spread rapidly and then was set loose in the wild to wreak havoc across the planet. If that doesn’t sound pre-planned I don’t know what does.
Ask yourself if you trust the communist Chinese… are we feeling that gullible? Meanwhile, China is conducting secret nuclear tests. Nothing to see here folks… nothing at all. Just the prelude to world war.
