Holding China responsible for the devastating China virus.

There is no doubt that the virus that is plaguing the world both physically and economically was germinated in China and was allowed to spread by official Chinese denial, dodging, and lies that lost governments at least a month and more in taking preventative measures to stop the spread.
The Chinese authorities silenced the report from a doctor working in the Wuhan Central Hospital of the breakout of a new and unknown virus. They allowed a mass event to take place in Wuhan with the participation of tens of thousands of people. At the event the authorities distributed 200,000 free passes for people to celebrate the China Lunar New Year thereby furthering the spread of the virus.
Meanwhile, the hospital doctor died of the virus.
In mid-December, Chinese public health officials told the World Health Organization of a pneumonia-type illness with no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission. This was a lie.
Millions of Chinese were allowed to fly around the world for work, study, or tourism without any restrictions from a knowing Chinese Central Government, thereby spreading the deadly virus globally.
By January, the Central Government of the Communist Party of China knew precisely what they had unleashed on their people and the world and their disinformation campaign began in earnest. First they said there was little to worry about, then when President Trump issued a travel ban on all flights from China into the United States to try and slow the outbreak of a pandemic in America, the Chinese Government threatened to stop the supply of pharmaceutical drugs from China, then accused US soldiers of spreading the virus in Wuhan.
In January and early February, while claiming they had control over the virus in China, the Chinese Government, through government-owned proxies and covert companies including the China-owed Greenland Group, were buying up huge stocks of masks, ventilators, protective clothing from around the world including from Australia, Egypt and African countries, and then selling them on in late February and March to countries desperately short of vital items and equipment to fight the pandemic. In this way the Chinese Government were profiting from a virus that originated in their country that they had denied. But hoped to be seen as the savior of the world.
Despite the political incorrectness of letting China off the hook for their insidious virus, there is no excuse to forgive them for the devastating health and economic damage they have caused by their malevolent behavior.
Voices have been heard calling for huge reparations from a Chinese Communist Government that acts as if it is above the law and all the norms of acceptable international behavior.
Many US lawmakers are saying “We should hold China accountable,” Including Marsha Blackburn, Tom Cotton, Marco Rubio. Senator Josh Hawley said that “The cost of Beijing’s criminal conduct should be assessed and they should pay damages to the USA and the world.”
Business Today reported on a $20 trillion lawsuit has been filed against Chinese authorities over the virus outbreak.
In this article Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, the executive director of Shurat HaDin, the Israel Law Center, was quoted as saying, “An argument could be made that just like support for terrorism, which is legally actionable, a government that engages in such reckless disregard and negligence and covers up an epidemic which has the potential to spread worldwide could be held legally liable.”
She went on to say, “Cover-ups and deliberate acts to conceal a deadly medical crisis are not among the protected acts of a sovereign state or of responsible leaders.”
Confirming Darshan-Leitner’s contention, Juliya Arbisman, an international disputes expert and partner at the New York-based Diamond McCarthy law firm, indicated that there are broad possibilities under international law, especially trade law, for State-to-State and individual investor claims against countries.
Future claims should include U.S. National Security advisor Robert O'Brien’s reference to the doctors who were censored, pointing to the Beijing concealment in the early phase which cost the world community two months and aggravated the international fallout, leading to what House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Michael McCaul, has termed "one of the worst cover-ups in human history."
Ivana Stradner, international law and national security expert at the American Enterprise Institute said in the Fox New report, "China's delay in reporting the outbreak violated international law."
David Matas is a Canada-based international human rights lawyer who was appointed as a member of the Canadian delegation to the United Nations Conference on the Establishment of an International Criminal Court. He points out that if the virus derived from the Chinese Bio Laboratory in Wuhan by any form and its spread was denied by China, that this non-reporting is a form of violation of the Biological Weapons Convention and that the United States could lodge a complaint to the United Nations Security Council claiming that China had acted in breach of its obligations according to the provisions of the Convention.
But governments and major international companies are more interested in being compensated for the damages caused to them, their citizens and workers.
The devastating economic fallout from the China virus may take years to recover leaving a trail of personal tragedies in its wake.
China must be held responsible and not be allowed to profit from their malevolent actions.

The China virus and its ultimate aim.


The China virus is a relay race to help the Communist regime achieve world domination.
The race began in China by a combination of social and governmental mores that have infected the world with health, social and economic despair.
This is a deadly Chinese relay race in which tens of thousands are dying, and the starting point was, once again, China, a country that apparently learned nothing from the Sars outbreak. 
From the squalid unhygienic live animal wet markets of Wuhan to the brutal dishonest and uncooperative Communist regime. The plague burst off its starting blocks and was unleashed onto the world.
We witnessed how the regime abused its own people. We saw scenes of officials in protective clothing manhandle the sick and the suspected sick and throw them into waiting vans. They didn’t want us to see them welding residents into their infected buildings to die of the plague or starvation. In places, they confined the virus to sealed buildings and let people die.
Why should such a leadership have more concern for Italians or Spanish sufferers, or you, than their own people?
From social and governmental Chinese malfunction the baton passed to lax governments in the West who dragged their feet, were slow to evaluate the danger losing valuable time, time that allowed the China virus to gain a foothold before exploding and spreading throughout each country laid bare to the threat due, in large part, to their lenient and liberal open border policies.
In each country this baton fell into the hands of the "selfie generation" whose social norms have degenerated from an “it’s all about us” philosophy to an “it’s all about me” selfishness. Irresponsibility reigned in the thoughtless generation that consider themselves immortal.  These are the carriers that drive the older generation to hospital and to death.
From here the baton is seen in the collapse of health systems stretched to breaking point, particularly in less developed nations, and to economies, both personal and national, as authorities desperately try to grapple with an unseen enemy, an unseen Chinese enemy.
Then we hear the eager runners, the slogan-bleating echo chamber of progressive politics. Those who, wittingly or unwittingly, follow Communist China’s disinformation campaign, blaming and insulting anyone, or any country, who call it what it is – the China virus, or the Wuhan virus. They are stigmatized as “racists” or “xenophobes.” Better to call it by a code name or something anonymous, like corona.
So, for these folk, let me count the ways this is a Chinese virus.
The Chinese Government knew about it back in mid-November. It is now approaching the end of March and they still haven’t owned up to it.
One Chinese scientist identified the virus in November, but the Chinese regime ordered his lab to destroy the samples and suppressed the news. He died, of course.
Despite the knowledge of the virus, Chinese authorities permitted their citizens to fly in their millions to destinations around the world, thereby carrying the virus globally.
In December, the Chinese police arrested people who warned about the outbreak of the virus for spreading “rumors.”
In that month, Wuhan hosted a mass banquet attended by 40,000 visitors in an attempt to break the Guinness Book of Records for the most attended meal.
Rather than close down, Wuhan issued 200,000 free tickets to people to attend festival activities during the Lunar New Year in early January.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, the Chinese took an estimated forty billion trips combined both in China and abroad. Had the government issued warnings many millions may not have travelled. But the government was silent.
In January, the Chinese Government lied to the World Health Organization by telling them that the virus could not be transmitted from human to human.
In that month, Wang Guangfa, an official respiratory expert, told China Central television that the Wuhan pneumonia was “under control” and was mostly “a mild condition,” according to a New York Times report.
Less than two weeks later, Guangfa came down sick with the new virus contracted during a visit to Wuhan.
In the NYT article, Xu Zhiyuan, a journalist and critic of the Chinese regime said, “I thought the Sars virus of 2003 would force China to rethink its governance model. I was na├»ve. The system is successful in that it destroyed the people with integrity, the institutions with credibility, and a society capable of narrating its own stories. What is left is arrogant power, a bunch of messy information and angry fragile, isolated and angry individuals.”
When the Trump Administration offered to send scientists to China to investigate and solve the virus crisis China refused their offer.  Then, on February 2, rather than own up to the virus, they began their counter disinformation campaign with the ridiculous claim that the US army brought the epidemic to Wuhan. The twitter message from Lijian Zhao, an official spokesperson for the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ended, “the US owe us an explanation.”
It is the Chinese Communist Government that owes the world an apology. But they won’t apologize. It is not in their nature.
Chinese State controlled media threatened that China would withhold vitally needed medical supplies to the US as the pandemic hit America.
The Chinese authorities began their propaganda operation to remove the word “China” from anything associated with the virus, and a compliant US media together with the progressive linguists began to accuse anyone telling the truth of being “racists” and xenophobes,” thereby becoming the useful idiots of the Chinese Communist regime in Beijing.
It was never considered racist to call flu Spanish or German, but it has become so when it was generated by a malign Communist regime. With ample evidence to prove their guilt in the global spread of the deadly virus, the progressives give China a free pass while criticizing those that tell the truth. And this by people who profess to care for the planet.
This is not about a name. It is about calling out the Chinese regime for their unacceptable practices and system of governance.
In the game of world domination, as the world descends into chaos and breakdown, the Chinese leadership looks on, contentedly at the meltdown of the West.
They operate by the motto “What weakens my enemy strengthens me” and their ambition is playing out before our eyes. So what if tens of thousands of their own people die in the process. It is a small price for them to pay for the glory of the Red flag of China dominating the world.
China has thrown the world into turmoil. They show no sign that they regret their guilt. They intend to benefit from the weakness and chaos by selling the world what it needs from this China-generated crisis.  If any country objects, or calls out China for their malaise, they are threatened by non-supply of essential goods made in China to countries who have sold their soul and their manufacturing independence to the Communist regime in return for cheap goods.
This then is China, the world’s biggest and constant polluter.
Instead of kowtowing to the Beijing regime, the world must rally together and hold them accountable before the Red Flag unfurls yet another pandemic upon the survivors of this China Virus.
The United States has set the world in motion by unveiling a bill that would bring the manufacturing of vital pharmaceutical products back to America. Other nations must follow.
The US bill's opening paragraph says it all.
“The Chinese Communist Party threatened to cut of America’s access to vital drugs in the midst of a pandemic caused by its own failures.”
It is time for the rest of the world to wake up and stop being beholden to China for cheap shoes and essential drugs. For, as we have seen, they are likely to pull the plug at the most critical moment.
But the most dangerous China virus is metastasizing within the American political system.We can see it in the ambitions of Sanders, Warren and The Squad led by AOC, to name a few. We see it in the obstructionism of Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff and Nadler.
The Chinese control the thoughts and the lives of every Chinese man, woman and child. They do not have the liberty to think freely. Alternative thought is brutally put down.A similar process is underway on American campuses today. Alternative thought is not tolerated. It is suppressed by indoctrination. Just as old history is rejected on campus and schools in favor of thought that supplants history with a Marxist credo that overrides history. Old statues of figures that must be hated are torn down that do not comply with their ideology.
This is America today copying China where there are no statues of leaders beyond Mao. 
In China, there is government controlled freedom, which is no freedom at all.
The life, the thoughts, the freedoms of every Chinese person is controlled by the Beijing regime.
In America, the new Democratic ideology want to control your health system, they want to take away your freedom, your guns, your religion. In China, nobody is allowed to own a gun. That’s how they can drag you out of your house without resistance and make you disappear.
In China they take away your religion. In America they want to remove religious symbols from public buildings.
In China, they control a woman’s reproductive organs. They dictate how many children a family may have. In America, some states pay for free abortions even to the point of killing babies after birth. Infanticide cloaked as a woman’s rights issue.
China’s one-child policy looks more humane by comparison.
The China virus is alive and germinating in American politics with a party that wants to control every element of an individual’s liberty from what they think, how they live, how they feel, where they work, how they travel, what they eat.
It almost succeeded in taking control of the system this year. They failed, but the China political virus still germinates. No matter the outcome of the 2020 election, the germ within the Democratic Party will continue to metastasize producing new faces to replace the old tired politicians.
Unless firm action is taken to counteract it, it will spread its influence within the party resisting whoever is in control of government until, in 2024, they will emerge to gain control of the country by the growing votes of today’s brainwashed youth and their diversity politics which will become intolerant policy, the indoctrinated graduates who are beginning to take control of local government, the judiciary, the education systems, and future thought through the media. It will win both the House and Senate making a two party system, and therefore the Republican Party, irrelevant. They will impeach anyone they cannot tolerate. They will control how people live, what they can eat, how many kids they can have, how they can travel, where they will work, how much money they may receive.
The Chinese Government favors the Democratic Party. Chinese State media quoted Hillary Clinton's anti-Trump tweet on March 18.
That is the China virus within the body of America. It will be in lockstep with the Communist regime in the east, and together they will control the world.
The current China virus that is making people sick can be cured by Chinese manufactured vaccines and anti-viral drugs.
But the ultimate aim of the ideological China virus is the takeover of political systems starting with America. 
Be warned! This is how the China virus takes over the world.

It's the China Virus, stupid!

I have to say this because I am pissed off living in isolation because of China's filthy habits.
I'm fed up not being able to hug my loved ones, or shake hands with friends.
And I'm really mad that the damned Chinese are affecting my standard of living as well as attempting to ruin my health, my way of live, and possibly kill me and my family.
The world needs to censor China for repeatedly inflicting China born viruses onto the world. First Sars, now this, not to talk about the massive global pollution problem caused by China.
These are global issues that Western climate change advocates put to one side because the PC idiots say it's "racist" and "xenophobic" for us to protest China's disgusting and filthy habits that are putting the rest of us at risk.
I have even had people complain when I refuse to call this virus by an anonymous code name, because I prefer to call it out for what it is.
It is yet another filthy and deadly Chinese virus.
Did you notice that the media in America were originally calling it the Wuhan Virus, or the Chinese Virus, then they suddenly stopped? Why did this happen?
Because those that bow to the Communist Chinese Government propaganda machine, being so progressive and overly sensitive to gender, minority, xenophobic issues, bowed to the demand of the Commie Chinese and changed their language. They even came up with a stupid code-word for this virus, making it anonymous.
It could have come from Mars for all we knew.
But Trump was not bowing to their threats. He's not a progressive leftist. He stood in front of the press and openly stated. "They know where it came from."
They then threatened to cut off medical supplies and masks to America. That's what happens when you deliver your manufacturing infrastructure to Communists like the Obama Administration did with its pharmaceutical industry.
"It's not coming back," Obama told his people. "What do you think? I've got a magic wand?"
So let's stop pussyfooting around and own up to who is responsible for the spread of this latest Made in China disease.
The real disease is Communism. In this case the Chinese Communists and their acceptance of filth and disease which affects us all.
We have to demand that our governments hold them responsible for the disease and dirt they dump on us - and we just shut up and pay the bills to clean up their mess, if we are fortunate enough to stay alive. And as for all of you progressive lefties, all you do is talk so freely about climate change and don't do a damned thing to point to the criminal regimes that cause the filth.
All you do is change the wordage to make you feel better.
I'm sorry. That's not good enough. And that goes for you too, Greta!
If you agree with this message make it go global and wake up a stupid world.

Palestinian Economic Situation. Who is to blame?

News outlets are quick to accuse Israel in stories of Palestinian poverty, but if there is poverty who is responsible?
Let's put to rest the false Palestinian moan that poverty exists in the Gaza Strip because of Israeli oppression over the most densely populated place on earth.
Both theories are wrong.
The Israel oppression lie:
When Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad stop their rockets, border violence and terror, thousands of Gazans enter Israel daily to work and bring money back to their families. True, Israeli salaries are higher than those under corrupt Palestinian mismanagement.
Also, when Palestinian rockets stop flying into Israeli civilian centers, a thousand trucks roll into Gaza from Israel daily bringing everything that Gazans need to lead comfortable and healthy lives.
So their economic situation is a factor of living under the corrupt oppressive Hamas yoke that prefers war to wealth.
The Population density lie;
The Gaza Strip has a population density of 5,154 people per sq. km. Compare this with
Mumbai 83,800.
Karachi 59,100.
Cairo 19,376.
And population density does not have a direct relationship with poverty. Compare the Gaza Strip's demographics of 5,154 to
Wealthy Hong Kong 6,659 per sq.km.
Rich Monaco 19,426 per sq.km.
Even Greater London has a density of more than three times that of the Gaza Strip - 14,550 per sq. mile.
So Gaza Strip's economic condition has less to do with population density than it has to do with a brutal, corrupt Hamas leadership that steals prosperity from their people and wastes it on their obsessive terror war against Israel.
Incidentally, the population density of Tel Aviv is greater than the Gaza Strip at 7.606 people per sq. km.
Palestinian Hamas could learn a few things about population economic policies and management from Tel Aviv Municipality, even if it unprepared to learn anything about how to create national prosperity from the Israeli Government.
But, of course, it won't.
