“As we speak, Beijing is employing a whole-of-government approach using political, economic, and military tools, as well as propaganda to advance its influence and benefit its interest in the United States. China is also applying this power in more proactive ways than ever before…” Vice President Mike Pence speech to Hudson Institute, Oct. 4, 2018
The longer the COVID-19 lockdown goes on, the more of our elected officials become exposed as tyrants willingly tossing our Constitutional protections aside.
The question for Americans, whose rights have been stripped from them, is this truly a short term attempt to protect us from the virus that originated in Wuhan China, or was it pre-planned for political gain? Or, something in the middle?
Following on the heels of an attempt to remove President Trump from office using a false predicate that he colluded with Russia, that was followed by nearly two years of trying to ensnare Trump in an obstruction charge, with that followed by a ridiculous impeachment scam over an innocuous phone conversation… Well, what part of a Chinese-Democrat plot sounds far-fetched?
First, a little history. This is not our first dance with a Chinese generated pandemic.
In 2003, China gave the world Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS):
(Fox News) The first recorded case of something amiss was noted in November 2002 by health officials in Guangzhou city, Guangdong Province, the presumed origin of the new pathogen. But it was not until more than three months later – in mid-February 2003 — that China’s leadership reported a new virus to WHO, acknowledging that there had already been 300 cases and five known deaths of the new disease.
Just as evidence is starting to unfold of a Beijing cover-up, the Communist Party (CCP) leadership – then under President Hu Jintao – was similarly accused of hiding information, and the World Health Organization (WHO) was also skewered for inaction.
Fool me once shame on you… fool me twice shame on me. Especially, when we examine all of the reasons both the communist Chinese and Democrats could use this to advance their political objectives.
The lockdown we are currently being forced to endure has destroyed President Trump’s most visible accomplishments… what was perhaps the most robust economic expansion in U.S. history accompanied by record low unemployment across virtually every demographic.
For both the CCP and Democrats, Trump’s economic successes represent an exponential threat to either’s long term power…
And, with both the USMCA and Phase 1 China trade agreements scheduled to supercharge the economy to even greater heights…
That may well explain Democrat foot-dragging when it came to finally approving the USMCA and presenting the long-delayed Articles of Impeachment all while the CCP was keeping secret about the virus as it incubated.
Ancillary benefits, but perhaps no less important, the lockdown:
- Eliminates the need for Joe Biden to make public appearances where he would expose his diminished cognitive abilities.
- Allows Democrats to join with their Chinese-Marxist-Media allies to push widespread voting by mail that creates ample opportunity for massive voter fraud.
- Takes Biden’s financial ties to China and Ukraine out of the headlines.
- Puts a stop to the psychologically confirming visuals from President Trump’s rallies in front of completely full arenas that force thousands of others to watch from outside.
Earlier this week, the Washington Post reported that, in January 2018, U.S. Embassy officials sounded alarms over inadequate safety at the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab and passed on information about scientists conducting risky research on coronavirus from bats.
Only 17 years after their mishandling of SARS, it’s hard to dismiss the possibility that the CCP damn well knew what they were doing this time around.
The resulting pandemic has had devastating economic and medical effects all accruing to the CCP’s short term benefit.
What if China was candid about #coronavirus, and intervened earlier? Some empiric insights: If they acted 1, 2, or 3 weeks earlier, cases could have been cut by 66%, 86%, and 95%, respectively; together with significantly reducing number of affected areas. https://t.co/bVgCCp4zll

Now consider that China’s Communist Party rules by brute force. They are less interested in making a fair… even a somewhat fairer… trade deal with President Trump than they would be with creating the political crisis that might lead to removing him.
And, with “China Joe” Biden waiting in the wings, their ability to maintain the prior status quo deals ripping off America, would make unleashing a plague on the U.S. very appealing.
Whether in prior coordination with the Chinese communists or not, Democrats have done nothing to help address the immediate concerns…
