Xi Jinping's coronavirus body of lies
This crisis was made in China and globally metastasized thanks to Xi's willful failure. He deserves no salute, only our sense of his scandal. And our contemplation of what it says about his regime.

This wuhan virus crisis was made much worse by the host regime and its secrecy.  The Chinese communist party attempt to smear Trump and America as causing this is simply beneath contempt.  


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T






As with Mao Zedong's "Great Leap Forward," Xi Jinping's coronavirus legacy is built on a mountain of bodies and lies.

I note this because Xi Jinping has just taken a victory tour in Wuhan, where the coronavirus first spread. Believing China has turned the corner with this pandemic, China's leader is looking for positive global recognition. He deserves global recognition of the exact opposite kind.

This crisis captured the Chinese Communist Party's most basic essence: its opacity and evil. And Chinese, Americans, Iranians, and people everywhere else are suffering for it. 

Xi and his party's culpability are clear. It was  their irresponsibility  that allowed the coronavirus to run rampant in the first place. It was their instinct for secrecy which allowed the coronavirus to infect those who might otherwise have taken precautions. It was their insidious refusal to allow foreign scientists access to China which prohibited timely vaccine research. It is Xi's defining arrogance which saw him hide from Wuhan and now sees him dance a victory lap as doctors rot under their tombstones. Those first responders are the only heroes here. Like their Soviet forebears at Chernobyl, the Politburo wants them forgotten.

The reality of this outbreak is not China's mastery of the moment, but of how Xi has made things so much worse than they should have been. As CNN's James Griffiths  notes , Beijing is upping its attacks on western critics of its coronavirus chaos. State media says Xi has proven he's a great servant of human good. Those who say otherwise? As the regime's Global Times newspaper put it on Wednesday, these foreign critics  are  "ridiculous and pathetic," their condemnations of the party exposing only their "immorality and irresponsibility." 

Embracing North Korean style rhetoric, another piece  declares  that Republicans have shown their "wickedness" by pointing out that this is a crisis of the Chinese Communist Party's making.

Yes, it is manifestly good news that the coronavirus appears to be spreading less quickly now through China. But we can't look at that progress through the prism Xi provides. For one, we must ask the question: how many aged vulnerable Chinese died in their homes, unable to access adequate medical care or support, to get Xi to this point? How many died so that Xi could draw a line under his embarrassment?

The number is almost certainly far higher than the 3,100 coronavirus deaths that the party currently admits.

This crisis was made in China and globally metastasized thanks to Xi's willful failure. He deserves no salute, only our sense of his scandal. And our  contemplation of what it says about his regime.

If you listened to Chinese state-run media, you'd think  President Trump  went to  China  and released vials of  COVID-19 on groups of unsuspecting men, women and children.

Beijing has been bending over backward trying to convince the world that the United States is the real culprit behind the quickly spreading virus that's already claimed more than 4,600 lives across the globe.

It's a high-stakes strategy for the Asian nation fighting to keep its superpower status amid a national lockdown and palpable anger over claims that Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the coronavirus, at first covered it up, triggering a worldwide health and economic crisis.

WHO DECLARES CORONAVIRUS GLOBAL 'PANDEMIC'

The Chinese government has already published a book in English -- with translations in the works in French, Spanish, Russian and Arabic -- touting its handling of the deadly disease.

" A Battle Against Epidemic: China Combatting COVID-19 in 2020 " is a mishmash of glowing state media reports on the accomplishments of  President Xi Jinping , the Communist Party and the dominance of the Chinese system in fighting the crisis.

At best, China's aggressive new campaign can be chalked up to ambitious propaganda.  At its worst, it's a reckless display from a country that has actively misled the world while working overtime to save its own skin, foreign affairs expert  Gordon G. Chang  told Fox News.

Chang believes Beijing has been laying the groundwork for a PR attack against the United States for more than a month, first by throwing doubt on the origin of COVID-19 and second, by slamming America's handling of previous diseases like the  swine flu , which decimated China's pork industry.

...On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian tweeted that the U.S. military might have brought the coronavirus to Wuhan.

“When did patient zero begin in US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make public your data! US owe us an explanation!” Zhao said.... https://www.foxnews.com/us/china-smear-united-states-coronavirus-wuhan

The unmitigated gall of that dictator and his minions daring to accuse our President and America of starting that wuhan virus in his country.  The sad thing is that there are democrats in office, the media, and among the general population population who would openly blame Trump too instead of the source country.

"if you listened to Chinese state-run media, you'd think President Trump went to China and released vials of COVID-19 on groups of unsuspecting men, women and children."

And the Dems and the liberals including NT's ususual suspects will take It hook, line, and sinker.

The Chines government lied about it, allowed it to spread worldwide and are now threatening the US by holding back on key medication elements.

Maybe this is a form of bio weapon after all.  One that doesn’t kill everything but just causes enough damage to take down an opponents economy.
