The Chinese coronavirus: A wake-up call for America


The Chinese coronavirus: A wake-up call for America
By Mario Alexis Portella
As Wall Street regained some momentum last Friday after its worst day in over thirty years, and as President Donald Trump declared a national emergency with respect to the rapidly spreading COVID-19 (coronavirus), the House of Representatives passed legislation in a 363-40 vote that would make coronavirus testing free and provide paid sick leave to many of those affected by the pandemic spreading across the country. The Senate is expected to approve the bill this coming week before President Trump signs it into law, marking the second package in what Congress has telegraphed will be a broader effort to combat a fast-moving crisis.
As European countries continue to take ever more severe, though widely varying, measures to reduce contact among their citizens and slow the pandemic, China continued to ease up lockdown measures in its hardest-hit region. President Xi Jinping is now seen as a hero visiting the Hubei province — where the virus first emerged late last year — albeit, months after the virus "officially" was identified by the Chinese. The official story from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) state-run media is that the number of people infected with the COVID-19 has dropped immensely.
There is now a book, A Battle against Epidemic: China Combating COVID-19 in 2020, that compiles numerous state media accounts on the heroic leadership of President Xi Jinping, the vital role of the Communist Party, and the superiority of the Chinese system in fighting the virus. It has gotten rave reviews in Chinese media, not least because it was published by their ultimate boss — the Central Committee Publicity Department, formerly known as the Propaganda Department. Yet how can we trust a regime whose policy of brutality, censorship, and secrecy has offered, at best, nothing but half-truths and falsehoods about the coronavirus? Despite many of our politicians publicly placing their trust in them — I wonder if they also believe Beijing's accusation that the U.S. Army transports the COVD-19 to Wuhan — the CCP will do just about anything to maintain a new global hegemony.
As former U.S. House speaker Newt Gingrich stated in his latest book, Trump vs. China, the United States is currently engaged in a competition with the Chinese government unlike any other we have witnessed before. This is a competition between the American system — which is governed by freedom and the rule of law — and a totalitarian dictatorship that is controlled by the Chinese Communist Party. These are two different visions for the future; one will succeed, and one will fail.
The CCP, whose atheistic and mob-like rule is responsible for its rapid growth, had done everything in its power to downplay the gravity of the coronavirus when it broke out late last year in Wuhan. It silenced the late Li Wenliang — the whistleblower who tried to raise the alarm about the coronavirus outbreak. Li, who contracted the coronavirus from one of the patients he was treating, had been arrested by police and accused of falsely "spreading rumors."
The coronavirus outbreak has given Beijing a new tool to suppress truth-tellers, as with the case of Chen Qiushi, a Chinese citizen-journalist who has been placed into a quarantine camp against his will in Wuhan. His crime was going to the Wuhan hospitals and mortuaries and the construction sites of a quarantine centers, exposing what's really going on: crowded hospitals, desperate patients, death, and body bags. China's draconian actions don't stop there.
According to the U.S. Senate Committee of Finance on August 7, 2019, nearly 80 percent of active pharmaceutical ingredients are produced in Communist China — compounds used in practically every essential medicine for high blood pressure, cancer, and Alzheimer's, not to mention our antibiotics. Essentially, China controls our health care system, and do not think the CCP will not use it to its advantage, as it already has.
Unlike what then-president Barack Obama said — "China's peaceful rise is good for the world and for America," and China got a foothold in the U.S. when then-president George W. Bush signed a proclamation granting the Chinese permanent normal trading relations (PNTR) in 2001 — the CCP has to be taken on. This is not sinophobia, nor is it a green light to discriminate against Asians. It does mean, however, that our country must begin to manufacture our own pharmaceutical drugs, technological equipment, and the like so as no longer to rely on the economic and political whim of the CCP.
Newt Gingrich perhaps summed it up best: "We need a much such stronger U.S. government response on [the Chinese owned digital and global communications technology providers of] G5 and Huawei. We have been sitting around failing to act for about a year and a half. And every day we fail to act Huawei gains ground around the world[.] ... It's a vehicle for misinformation and a vehicle spying for China. And a anybody who doesn't think they're not going to use it that way has no concept of how China works."

"California Gov. Gavin Newsom told a press conference on Wednesday that the coronavirus crisis provided an opportunity to usher in “a progressive era” through policy changes that shift American society away from capitalism."

I'm guessing the next stimulus bill will be chalked full of unacceptable progressive agenda changes to fundamental principles.  ..not gonna guess though on whether Trump will compromise on some of them or reject the attempt in whole.

Yesterday several news sites ran an article making the point:

Pandemic Historian; Coronavirus 'a Disease of...

"Mar 30, 2020 · The Chinese coronavirus “is emphatically a disease of globalization,” a pandemic historian at Yale University says. In an interview published in the Wall Street Journal, Yale University’s Frank Snowden — a historian who most recently in 2006 published a book about Italy’s eradication of malaria — details how the coronavirus pandemic is threatening the globalist worldview of free ..."

So a day or 2 after my requesting it ONE article made the rounds, it needs pounded home A LOT more than that!

meanwhile the thoughts that keep coming to my mind most often are;

. ! DEBT IS SLAVERY !

. $20trillion in debt was far too much slavery to tolerate. $2trillion(actually $6trillion considering the FED's $4trillion more debt instantly created is even more slavery. ..and another $2trillion proposed within days just doesn't sound like sound fiscal practice at all.

. too much government authority is slavery and government will always take more authority than it has been given.

. fed/gov having authority over our health and healthcare will maximize that authority alway. It didn't take long until that authority grabbed more authorities with the authority over our health and healthcare, like;

   . closing the doors of private businesses

   . dictating we must not go to work, or visit, or gather, or travel, or etc..

. and if I wanted to kill an economy in order to destroy a nation that was always an obstacle to my One World Government agenda, right now is demonstrating how ramming FED/GOV authority over our health and healthcare down our throats would be the right weapon to get it done.  

.  ...and as much as I tend to like a lot of things about what I see Trump doing, it keeps echoing in my thoughts that he's not showing anything similar to being a small federal government President right now. He is practicing some fundamental principles that are sound, but in totality they just aren't adding up to the concept of a limited FED/GOV.  ..and that's the most important factor of liberty, the primary concept of our country's creation and is the antithesis of slavery.

LARRY,

WOW! Your comment hit home for me! Yes I agree the progressive agenda left the door wide open and if they had there way there would be no borders and no walls to keep anything out! Idiots!

here's the clip of his father's quote, too short to include his saying NYC's culture is why it's the cause NYC being the coronavirus epicenter. Here's a link to the entire briefing - starting at the 30 minutes mark should include my point;

I've watched a total of ONE Gov. Cuomo coronavirus briefing He said something very interesting in it I thought Trump, Rush, Levin or Breitbart woulda pounced on. I haven't seen/read much of Levin or Rush so maybe they have talked about it but I haven't seen a word from Breitbart or Trump about it, and of course a google owned youtube would never make finding the video clip easy by putting it in a title.
What he emphasized paraphrased was ' New York City the epicenter of America's coronavirus because of our progressive culture.' ...and he used a favorite quote of his fathers to drive the point home, which I also can't find. But it was an outright admission of the coronavirus taking root in our country was due to NYC's uber-progressive culture in the tone of a brag.  -- and now we know as fact that those progressives are fleeing NYC and spreading the virus everywhere. 

   --Where's the overdue mass publicizing of this fact and admission of the fact, that it is the principles of the progressives to blame for the world wide pandemic, and especially in our country being that it has been admitted by the Governor of New York that the progressive culture in his state was the gateway into our country for coronavirus , although in typical progressive fashion it was twisted into a tone of something to be proud of.

The progressive's principles of no borders, globalization, throwing the racist card incessantly ad nauseum, dense populations, mass transit, etc... are without doubt to blame for the pandemic in the U.S. - and that should be saturating the daily talking points of us who want our country's progressive culture's era to end.
