In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Republicans dismiss vague Biden threats to hold China accountable for Covid

Just imagine. The Chinese Communist government allowed a deadly virus to get into its population, quite likely as a result of a screw up at one of its labs, tried to cover it up, failed to contain it within their country, failed to keep it from becoming a worldwide epidemic.

And no serious consequences?

According to Fox News:

House Republicans are not satisfied with the Biden administration’s stance against the Chinese government when it comes to making sure there is a thorough investigation of the coronavirus pandemic.

National Security adviser Jake Sullivan told “Fox News Sunday” that China would face “isolation from the international community” if a proper probe does not take place, but there are those in Congress who would prefer to see more direct – and immediate – action.

“We are well past the time for vague threats and cheap talk,” Rep. Rob Wittman, R-Va., said in a statement. Wittman went on to say that if the administration “is serious about getting to the truth” about what role China played in COVID-19’s origin, “they must establish tangible consequences should China fail to allow a free and fair investigation into the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”

Last week, Wittman and Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-N.Y., introduced the World Deserves to Know Act, which would impose sanctions under the Global Magnitsky Act against members of the Communist Party who are believed to have been involved in limiting free speech, as well as the disappearance of whistleblowers and journalists in connection with the pandemic.

    1. … and the wicked witch of the West camel-a and senile joe will probably be given the Nobel Prize for Peace. Camel-a for having tackled the “root cause” of illegal immigration to America and “solving” it. Senile joe for initiating world peace by meeting with putin. The left leaning, socialist Nobel Prize Committee will not award it to President Trump. He’s too far to the right and an anti-socialist.

  1. So suppose China admits it lost control of the virus after a lab accident, then what?
    I recall many months ago that they imposed a citywide quarantine on 50 million residents, but that didn’t work.
    Reality is harsh, loss of life, loss of income, loss of freedom was the result of a experiment that worked, but wasn’t contained.
    Unless someone can prove the Chinese released this tragedy on Earth with evil intent, then who, what, and when is just idle talk.
    Humans have faced greater loss of life over our time on Earth. Plagues, diseases, simple insect bites that kill, starvation, climate events, wars- we have been hit with it all and still we seem to carry on. We will survive this, too.

    1. There will be no accountability for the simple reason that there will be no way to find out exactly what happened at that Chinese lab. The regime is a totalitarian regime. They will make sure that any and all evidence is destroyed. If in fact there is something nefarious to hide, whistle blowers will keep quiet. If they don’t, they know they and their families will pay an exceptionally high price. Nothing will come out of this.

      srdem65, I do agree with you that human beings on the whole manage to survive and carry on whether the death, pain and suffering is caused by horrible natural disasters or man’s inhumanity to man. One other thing is also certain and that is that humans will no longer exist when our sun burns off all of its energy or when the Andromeda Galaxy collides with our Milky Way Galaxy, whichever comes first. In the meantime, for those who believe bird-brain AOC, we will all die within 10 yrs if the “environment threat” is not fixed.
