China Joe’s White Flag in the Virus Wars
By Cliff Kincaid
Did you know that 70 members of the Pfizer investment board are members of the Chinese Communist Party? Members include Chen Thirsty, High Also, Ding ling, and Jia Four Flowers.
This absurd and ridiculous claim, circulated among conservatives by self-appointed experts with no medical expertise, strikes me as similar to the disinformation campaigns of the last two years. The communists will do anything to persuade people not to take the American-made vaccines produced by Pfizer or Moderna.
At first, the Chinese communists have tried to convince people in the West that the China virus was either a hoax or just another flu-like illness.
But they knew the virus is real and that it kills in new and unique ways. They know because the evidence is that their scientists either produced or released it from a laboratory.
As America suffers from shortages of tests, goods, and services, as a result of the spread of the latest China virus variant, my friend and journalist, Trevor Loudon, has recorded a video blaming the communists for lockdowns over the virus in the West. His evidence is that a member of the Scientific Advisory Group on Emergencies (SAGE), which advises Boris Johnson’s government in Britain, is a communist.
In contrast to Britain, America has a federal system of government in which states decide for themselves what actions to take against the virus. Many reject a Biden-style national system of lockdowns and have gone to court to block them.
Whatever the communist role in lockdowns, the vaccines have proven to be effective, and yet many Trump supporters are ambivalent about them. Conservative websites censor my columns of hope and scientific vaccine progress made under Trump.
It’s true that Communists generally do not oppose state-sanctioned mandatory vaccination programs and lockdowns. On the other hand, Trevor Loudon does not emphasize that the Chinese and Russian Communist Parties oppose American-made vaccines. This is the critical fact as we surpass 800,000 dead Americans from the virus and millions scramble to get COVID tests.
Whereas Trump acted quickly to get the vaccines approved, China Joe Biden has completely bungled the roll-out of the tests, telling ABC News he had ordered “pills” instead of tests.
The Washington Free Beacon has given China Joe the distinction of "The Lie of the Year," with his proclamation, "I will shut down the virus."
The contrast is striking: Trump developed life-saving vaccines and Biden is promising free tests that are not yet available.
Liberal Gregg Gonsalves, an associate professor of epidemiology at the Yale School of Public Health and associate professor (adjunct) at Yale Law School, wrote a column in the Washington Post under the title, President Biden is failing on covid-19. Referring to China Joe's latest pronouncement, he said, “what we saw this week was an administration floundering and a president not in command of facts or willing to shift course in any substantial way on the pandemic.”
The liberal media are now recognizing failures built on lies.
Biden broke his promise to shut down the virus. This is dereliction of duty and an impeachable offense
Still, as Trump emphasized in his debate with Candace Owens, we have his life-saving vaccines.
As I have noted in the past, the irony is that the American vaccines were made possible by a refugee from communist Hungary, a scientist by the name of Katalin Karikó. She fled to the U.S. from communism in the 1980s and just received the Vilcek Prize for Excellence in Biotechnology “for her pioneering research leadership into the development of mRNA therapeutics, which led to the development of mRNA vaccines for COVID-19.”
Developed under President Trump’s “Warp Speed” project, Karikó explains in a story by Adrian Peel of the Cambridge Independent how mRNA “instructs cells to create a harmless piece of the Covid-19 virus’ spike protein, which provokes the immune system into a response.”
Potentially, such technology promises a cure for cancer. She notes a cancer vaccine using mRNA has also been in development for 20 years.
With the American-made vaccines for COVID-19 making a difference, the communists realized that their attempts to cripple the United States completely were fruitless. They began spreading disinformation designed to get people questioning and opposing the vaccines. Ironically, many were formerly Trump supporters. The stories of prominent “anti-vaxxers” dying from the coronavirus could fill a book.
Trump, however, not only took the vaccine but the booster.
Under President Trump, the Pentagon and the State Department began focusing on the on-going COVID-19 disinformation campaigns of China, Russia, and Iran. One report, “Axis of Disinformation: Propaganda from Iran, Russia, and China on COVID-19,” was written by researchers associated with U.S. Central Command’s Information Operations Division and documents how the claims advanced by these three countries are all designed to take attention away from the Chinese origin of the virus.
In making the charge that the Chinese coronavirus originated in the United States, the Chinese took a page out of the old Soviet playbook. As concern about AIDS was growing in the 1980s, the Soviet Union launched a disinformation campaign charging that an American military laboratory had developed the virus that caused HIV/AIDS.
CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather reported this charge on a March 30, 1987, broadcast and was widely criticized for playing into a Soviet KGB disinformation campaign. It had appeared in a number of Soviet and Third World publications before Rather picked it up.
In the case of the China virus, journalists generally admit it came from China, but not from a government lab.
As a journalist, media critic, researcher and author who has never been employed by or associated with any government intelligence agency, I believe that providing accurate information to the American people is a special responsibility. My June 20, 2015, conference through the Committee to Protect Medical Freedom, one of our special projects, challenged the government's AIDS vaccine program, its AIDS science, and the failure to address contaminated vaccines possibly linked to cancer and AIDS.
I came to the conclusion that the government, in collusion with certain special interests, was rushing into development and production of vaccines that could backfire, causing more health problems than they would solve.
The AIDS vaccine project, developed under President Clinton, was a failure.
I also challenged the Hepatitis B vaccines for kids. Hepatitis B mostly affects drug users, the sexually promiscuous, blood transfusion recipients, and health care workers. So why are innocent children who are not at risk being required to be vaccinated against it? It's because the government doesn't want or can't identify those who ARE at risk. It's easier to get the children, who are least likely to get the disease.
In regard to the China virus, contagious and deadly, everyone was at risk, especially older Americans. It was important to act quickly, and Trump did.
The government not only failed to protect us against the China virus, there is evidence that U.S. agencies are linked to American and Chinese scientists who are/were working on dangerous biological experiments in China, described as “gain-of-function” research designed to make viruses more transmissible and fatal.
Under President Trump, the Department of Justice announced that Dr. Charles Lieber, the Chair of Harvard University's Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department, and two Chinese nationals had been charged in connection with aiding Communist China. This indictment was completed under Trump and Lieber has now been found guilty.
But “fact-checkers” assured at the time of his indictment that he had nothing to do with the virus that has now killed more than 800,000 Americans.
Lieber’s “sponsors,” as identified on his web site, included the National Institutes of Health, the Office of Naval Research, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency, and MITRE, a think tank.
Despite this successful prosecution that began under President Trump, a group of professors at Stanford University has asked Biden Attorney General Merrick Garland to discontinue the Trump-era program aimed at combating Chinese economic espionage and finding Chinese spies in academia.
This is a topic that my friend Trevor Loudon should be concerned about. And it involves America and not a British advisory group with one communist member.
As we debate masks and lockdowns and scramble for tests, what are we going to do to prevent another killer virus from being unleashed by China on the world?
The answer may lie in the fact that a Navy combat ship was just forced to remain in port because of a COVID outbreak.
At least Biden’s impeachment would send the message to our enemies that we take this war seriously.
