I’ve compiled more details about China’s disinformation and cover-up campaign, but suffice it to say that our sources in the intelligence community conclude that campaign is designed to help Xi’s communist politburo counter and deflect any claims by the U.S. that the SARS-CoV-2 release is associated with the regime’s deadly pathogen labs in Wuhan.
Notably, some of the earliest concerns about the release of this dangerous pathogen were raised in January by Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), a U.S. Army veteran who made this connection between SARS-CoV-2 and the Wuhan Institute of Virology: “We know that just a few miles away from that food market [where the disease was first contracted] is China’s only biosafety level 4 super laboratory, which researches human infectious diseases.” Cotton added: “The Chinese Communist Party has once again been caught red-handed covering up, suppressing, and censoring a serious public health risk, which could increasingly be a global public health risk. For weeks, China did not come clean about the coronavirus that they first said was only being passed from animals to humans in a seafood market in Wuhan in China.”
To that end and for the record: The Wuhan market where CV19 was first contracted is near China’s only P4 (Pathogen Level 4) super laboratory. The Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory at the Wuhan Institute of Virology is engaged in research on the Ebola, Nipah, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever viruses — and, yes, coronavirus variants. And the institute has clear ties to the communist regime’s bioweapons programs.
There is now sufficient evidence that the Chinese had isolated and researched SARS-CoV-2 virus, and that they knew the likely consequences if it were released.
National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien affirmed Cotton’s suppression assessment. “This outbreak in Wuhan was covered up,” said O’Brien. “There’s lots of open-source reporting from China, from Chinese nationals, that the doctors involved were either silenced or put in isolation … so that the word of this virus could not get out. It probably cost the world community two months [of prep time].”
According to O’Brien, “If we’d had those [two months] and been able to sequence the virus, and had the cooperation necessary from the Chinese — had a WHO team been on the ground, had a CDC team, which we’d offered, been on the ground — I think we could have dramatically curtailed what happened both in China and what’s now happening across the world. … We’ve sent our condolences to China, but now we’re in a place where we’re having to deal with the crisis here.”
This week, as the CV19 Task Force extended until 30 April its original 15-day mandate to slow the spread of the virus, Sen. Cotton reiterated: “The Chinese Communist Party is still lying today, as they were in December and January, and that’s why what could have been a local problem in Wuhan turned into a global pandemic. … As for what happened in that biosafety Level 4 laboratory, that super lab in Wuhan, we still don’t know because the Chinese CP refuses to come clean.”
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, stated succinctly, “This is one of the worst cover-ups in human history, and now the world is facing a global pandemic.”
President Trump has declared that the Chinese will be held accountable “when they lose things like the manufacturing capacity that we’ve outsourced to them or when other democratic governments around the world respond to their people who know that China is responsible for this virus.”
Such steps are long overdue, and the president deserves credit for his actions to this end, despite all the globalist political opposition. But there’s a more direct way to send China the bill.
As President Trump and Congress return to the deepening well of national debt to authorize the treasury to print trillions of dollars in relief payments to be mailed nationwide, recall that at the end of 2019, when China was still concealing the pandemic it seeded worldwide, it held $1.07 trillion in U.S. debt.
That’s almost 16% of the $6.7 trillion in treasury bills, notes, and bonds then held by other countries.
One way to seek some remuneration for China’s liability is to send Xi Jinping the bill for the catastrophic damage caused by China’s abject and willful negligence. President Trump should therefore construct a “default option” on debt held by China as a liability offset for the debt our nation is now incurring as a result of China’s willful and catastrophic deception. We should also seize Chinese assets in the U.S., including equity holdings in U.S. companies.
During the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump said correctly: “The United States government [will] never have to default because you print the money. I hate to tell you. So there’s never a default.” Of course, printing money, which is exactly what we’re doing to help American wage-earners and businesses through the current government-induced partial economic shutdown, is inflationary.
Thus, in addition to seizing Chinese assets and equity holdings in the U.S., the president should offer Xi Jinping the option of forgiving the U.S. debt held by China. And when Xi balks, as he certainly will, I suggest President Trump authorize the U.S. Treasury to print $1.07 trillion in “trade dollar notes” as repayment for the debt currently held by China. Then Xi can keep those notes in reserve to use as toilet paper during the next pandemic.
Yes, I know this is the first day of April, sometimes known as April Fools’ Day, but I’m not foolin’. As our president has already declared, “China is responsible for this virus.” And one way or the other, China must pay.
And on a final note to bring this around to who we are…
“The battle in which we’re now engaged has inflicted many hardships on our nation and our families. … But through it all, the world has witnessed the unyielding resolve of our incredible American people. We are not only a country of vast resources; we’re a nation of colossal strength, towering spirit, soaring patriotism, and exceptional character. … We are one family, bound together by love and loyalty. … With the determination of the American people, and with the grace of God, we will win this war.” —President Trump’ https://patriotpost.us/alexander/69656-cv19-made-in-china-send-xi-the-bill-2020-04-01
