Why Trump is Right to Blame China for Pandemic

The Chinese Communist Party propaganda machine (CCP) is in full swing trying to reset the Wuhan Coronavirus narrative to distance itself and China from their culpability in this pandemic. This is information warfare.

The CCP is using its influence over the World Health Organization (WHO) and it’s unwitting minions in the western press to attack President Trump for calling the pandemic a “Chinese Virus.”  However, as I explained in the World Tribune

Well before President Trump ever referred to the “Chinese Wuhan Virus,” or the new coronavirus spread across American cities, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) was already “weaponizing wokeness” in the West over anything it perceived as critical of China’s role in mishandling the epidemic.

But is clear the CCP is diverting attention and blame because, not only did this new coronavirus originate in China, it also became a global pandemic specifically because of the repressive Chinese authoritarian regime’s obtuse incompetence and secrecy.

Trump is right to focus on China’s culpability.

According to a recent study from the University of Southampton, the global outbreak of the coronavirus could have been dramatically reduced had China’s communist government acted sooner.

The first case of the virus was reportedly detected as early as mid-November of last year, but the CCP did not admit there was an outbreak, or human to human transmission until and quarantine Wuhan until Jan. 23.

That was seven weeks after the virus first appeared.

“As events in Italy, the United States, Spain, and France have shown, quite a lot can happen in a week, much less seven. By then, mayor Zhou Xianwang admitted that more than 5 million people had already left Wuhan,” writes Shadi Hamid in the Atlantic.

The research found “that if interventions in [China] could have been conducted one week, two weeks, or three weeks earlier, cases could have been reduced by 66 percent, 86 percent and 95 percent respectively – significantly limiting the geographical spread of the disease.”

Had the Communist Party leadership in China acted appropriately just three weeks earlier they could have almost eliminated the chance (95 percent) of this disease spreading globally and causing a pandemic. But they failed, miserably. And they failed due to the nature of their repressive regime.

The CCP is engaged in a full scale effort to reset the narrative away from China’s origin and culpability for this pandemic, and shift blame to the U.S. This is why  President Trump is right to keep the attention on the Chinese government as the cause of this global pandemic.

The U.S. in an information war with China. In addition to defeating this pandemic – that is a war the U.S. must win.

  1. This may be lots more than just a disinformation war. This may have been an intentional “act of war” to bring down the economy of the Western World. Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton said likewise. He was laughed out of the realm of the left wing media. As a Navy shipboard veteran, I believe that he is right. We are at war and as a traditional Catholic, you can throw a left wing pontiff into the mixer.

    • china has been at war with the US, the last bastion of FREEDOM in the world. china will, at all costs, nonobstant the cost in lives of people in china and the world. As long as the Politburo is successful in the lies they propagate, the more the lies are repeated, the more the DEMON-RATS repeat them, the more the chinese will win.
      President TRUMP SHOULD repeatedly call that virus “THE CHINESE VIRUS”. ALWAYS. Forever. The world needs to be reminded that the war, the BIOLOGICAL war started in china against the whole world.
      The DEMON-RATS are being paid, corrupted, under the table by the chinese. Whether in cash, in gold, in gifts, trips, women, etc, the gifts and the corruption are pouring from china into the pockets of the DEMON-RATS. Every single one of the leftits who want to argue against calling the virus the “Chinese Virus”, is subject to investigations by the IRS, the DoJ, the Justice Dept, and some are culprits of TREASON.

      • This is a very interesting theory that Demonrats are being paid off by the Chinese. Many Demonrats are communists and it is not farfetched to think they will do anything to get rid of Trump – even to destroy their own country. Ds are such a hateful bunch ever since their mighty one (Obama) was president. When this virus subsides, the US needs to seriously consider cutting ties with Chinese markets, especially pharmaceuticals.

    • D Paul, you’re exactly right, and your use of the word “may” (have been intentional) is charitable to say the least. Communism knows no respect for life and liberty and has long ago promised America it would “assist” our leaders to introduce socialism so that one day we would wake up and find we’re all communists. California and New York are well on that path if not there in fact. As you know President Trump has a “White House” communication app to “get in touch” that I personally use, and I recently expressed my opinion to the president that anyone who says the “virus” was an accident is either a communist, explicitly involved with Communism, otherwise liberal anti-american or at least just plain stupid. The Chinese communists have no regard for anyone’s life much less their own masses, never mind the free world. Obviously how many or who die from this virus attack is of no consequence to the left wing.
      What’s more, your remark about “a left wing pontiff” is appropriate which as a traditional (practicing & faithful) catholic I also support. Thank you.

    • Agreed. I can still believe this is a possible NWO agenda push using biological warfare against us to take us down and bring us into the fold. I believe it’s time for us to start investigating our inhouse troublemakers who wish the same also.

    • You are right…the miscreants in China “made” the virus, and I believe they lost control of it, and on purpose…these people don’t care about losing a few million of their own with their over-population, so they aren’t going to care about the illness or loss of life in other countries. Trump is the first one to finally say NO to China in regards to the trade inequalities, and they have retaliated. People in this country need to crawl out from under their rock of ignorance and see China for what it is…communist, dishonest, 3rd world filth and hypocrisy at its finest!

    • I recently heard a nightime talk show host say that the Chinese leaders from the top down should be prosecuted and persecuted. I was horrified at first but after thinking about it is no one going to be punished? That should include involved criminals in our own Country beginning w/ HRC.

  2. The Democrats and Our Media are All Onboard with the CCP and Their Campaign of Lies. China Owns this Fiasco and the World had better not let Them Off the Hook for the Harm They have Caused the Entire World by Their Ineptness and Subterfuge. This is what You get when the Government only cares about Increasing Their hold over a Country, and Everyone here should be Looking at the Democrats as this is Exactly what They Want!

  3. Coronavirus arrived at Canada’s NML Winnipeg facility on May 4, 2013 from the Dutch lab. The Canadian lab grew up stocks of the virus and used it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. Winnipeg scientists worked to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus.
    Research was done in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s national lab, the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases which is housed in the same complex as the National Microbiology Laboratory.

    NML has a long history of offering comprehensive testing services for coronaviruses. It isolated and provided the first genome sequence of the SARS coronavirus and identified another coronavirus NL63 in 2004.
    This Winnipeg based Canadian lab was targeted by Chinese agents in what could be termed as Biological Espionage.
    Chinese Biological Espionage
    In March 2019, in mysterious event a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses from Canada’s NML ended up in China. The event caused a major scandal with Bio-warfare experts questioning why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China. Scientists from NML said the highly lethal viruses were a potential bio-weapon.
    Following investigation, the incident was traced to Chinese agents working at NML. Four months later in July 2019, a group of Chinese virologists were forcibly dispatched from the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory (NML). The NML is Canada’s only level-4 facility and one of only a few in North America equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases, including Ebola, SARS, Coronavirus, etc.
    Xiangguo Qiu – The Chinese Bio-Warfare Agent
    The NML scientist who was escorted out of the Canadian lab along with her husband, another biologist, and members of her research team is believed to be a Chinese Bio-Warfare agent Xiangguo Qiu. Qiu was the head of the Vaccine Development and Antiviral Therapies Section in the Special Pathogens Program at Canada’s NML.
    Xiangguo Qiu is an outstanding Chinese scientist born in Tianjin. She primarily received her medical doctor degree from Hebei Medical University in China in 1985 and came to Canada for graduate studies in 1996. Later on, she was affiliated with the Institute of Cell Biology and the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health of the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, not engaged with studying pathogens.

    But a shift took place, somehow. Since 2006, she has been studying powerful viruses in Canada’s NML. The viruses shipped from the NML to China were studied by her in 2014, for instance (together with the viruses Machupo, Junin, Rift Valley Fever, Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever and Hendra).
    Infiltrating the Canadian Lab
    Dr. Xiangguo Qiu is married to another Chinese scientist – Dr. Keding Cheng, also affiliated with the NML, specifically the “Science and Technology Core”. Dr. Cheng is primarily a bacteriologist who shifted to virology. The couple is responsible for infiltrating Canada’s NML with many Chinese agents as students from a range of Chinese scientific facilities directly tied to China’s Biological Warfare Program, namely:
    1. Institute of Military Veterinary, Academy of Military Medical Sciences, Changchun
    2. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Chengdu Military Region
    3. Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Hubei
    4. Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing
    Sources say Xiangguo Qiu and her husband Keding Cheng were escorted from the National Microbiology Lab in Winnipeg on July 5, 2019. Since then, the University of Manitoba has ended their appointments, reassigned her graduate students, and cautioned staff, students and faculty about traveling to China. (Governor General’s Innovation Awards)
    All of the above four mentioned Chinese Biological Warfare facilities collaborated with Dr. Xiangguo Qiu within the context of Ebola virus, the Institute of Military Veterinary joined a study on the Rift Valley fever virus too, while the Institute of Microbiology joined a study on Marburg virus. Noticeably, the drug used in the latter study – Favipiravir – has been earlier tested successfully by the Chinese Academy of Military Medical Sciences, with the designation JK-05 (originally a Japanese patent registered in China already in 2006), against Ebola and additional viruses.
    However, the studies by Dr. Qiu are considerably more advanced and apparently vital for the Chinese biological weapons development in case Coronavirus, Ebola, Nipah, Marburg or Rift Valley fever viruses are included therein.
    The Canadian investigation is ongoing and questions remain whether previous shipments to China of other viruses or other essential preparations, took place from 2006 to 2018, one way or another.

  4. When is someone going to stand up and give back the CCP exactly what they deserve over creating and covering up this mess? They have gotten away with too much for too many years. It’s time to take a stand. Black is Black. White is White. Right is Right. Wrong is Wrong. There is no GRAY area here. What they did is WRONG. They need to take ownership and PAY for cleaning up their mess again. This is not the first time they have done this. It just happens to be the worst case.

  5. What the heck is this? I am German hell I don’t care if they use the term German Measles, that where it came from. Snow flakes should get a grip on themselves!
