Just Asking...


There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that the Communist Chinese Virus…

(1)  was a global pandemic causing a severe loss of life, damage to economies, and life-altering impact on individuals worldwide;

(2)  was a national security threat of the highest order as it disrupted or delayed the operations involving the U.S. military and critical infrastructure;

(3)  was unconstitutionally and illegally weaponized by the Democrat Party, especially by the progressive communist democrats, to pursue a political agenda having only a tangential relationship to mitigating the medical and economic effects of the pandemic;

(4)  was falsely portrayed by the progressive mainstream media, including the deliberate and selective censoring and distortion of the news, to the extent that many major mainstream media outlets appeared to be propagandists taking their direction from progressive communist democrat sources;

(5)  deeply affected individuals and organizations, including those with valid medical credentials, expertise, and experience in virology and pandemics, as they were canceled or censored by those who operated major social media platforms;

(6)  was falsely portrayed by several global institutions, notably the World Health Organization, that were found to have inappropriate relationships with Communist China, including severe conflicts of interest;

(7)  was falsely portrayed by several U.S. politicians, notably those in the Biden Administration, that were found to have inappropriate relationships with Communist China, including severe conflicts of interest;

(8)  may have been partially funded by organizations in the U.S. government who overlooked the Communist Chinese military involvement in the virus research conducted at Communist Chinese facilities;

Against this fact pattern, one might conclude that the Democrat Party bears a large part in politicizing and mismanaging the U.S. response to the global pandemic. Even worse, the Democrat Party is attempting to extend certain “emergency” powers which increase their control over the government, private enterprise, and the American people.

And the Democrats continue to resist bipartisan attempts that would lead to a full and complete investigation of the Chinese Communist, possibly because it might reveal the extent to which the Communist Chinese have infiltrated the government, political parties, and treasonously compromised prominent politicians or their families.

They insist the matter should be left up to the demonstrably compromised intelligence and law enforcement agencies and the corrupt Department of State. All of whom are suspected to be infiltrated by Chinese Communist operatives or sympathizers. The fact that the Communist Government has totally compromised the Biden family would be grounds for impeachment on corruption charges, if not for treason for aiding and abetting a hostile foreign power.

The American public is screwed as the Democrats play games…

Select Subcommittee Republicans Announce Expert Witness Forum on COVID-19 Origins (Source)

On Tuesday, June 29 at 12:00 p.m. ET, Republican Whip and Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis Ranking Member Steve Scalise (R-La.), House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.), and Select Subcommittee Republican lawmakers will hold a forum with expert witnesses to examine the origins of the coronavirus. For more than a year now, Republicans have repeatedly called on Democrats to investigate the mounting evidence showing the virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) lab, but Democrats continue refusing to launch an investigation.

The left-wing media called it a ‘fringe conspiracy theory,’ Big Tech censored it, activists in white lab coats dismissed it and Democrats ignored it, but there is growing evidence Communist China started the pandemic, covered it up, and is responsible for the deaths of more than 600,000 Americans and millions more worldwide,” said Scalise and Comer. “Despite Speaker Pelosi’s efforts to create diversions and cover this up, the American people deserve the truth and are demanding accountability, and House Republicans will insist on getting these answers.

“The House Democrat majority’s refusal to follow the science, listen to the experts, and investigate the origins of COVID-19 is a dereliction of their duty. Next week, Select Subcommittee Republicans will hold a forum with expert witnesses to advance our investigation into the origins of COVID-19,” added Scalise and Comer. “The American people deserve to know the truth, even if Washington Democrats refuse to seek it.”

(Excerpts) Clyburn And Maloney Send Response To Scalise And Comer On Requests For An Investigation Into The Origins Of The Coronavirus (PDF of full letter)

Thank you for your recent letters requesting that the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis and the Committee on Oversight and Reform (the Committees) investigate the origins of the coronavirus. We share your desire to understand the origins of the pandemic.

Our Committees are focused on ensuring that the federal government’s response to the pandemic is effective, efficient, and equitable. We are concerned that your request may be designed not to obtain new information to protect Americans’ health, but to deflect accountability for the Trump Administration’s failed response to this crisis.

No investigation into the origins of the coronavirus in China would absolve the former President of this dereliction of duty, which contributed to the deaths of more than half a million of our fellow Americans—more deaths from the coronavirus than in any other country in the world.

In light of the many challenges of investigating the origin of the coronavirus in a foreign country, we believe inquiries into this issue will be well served by entities with direct access to intelligence tools and diplomatic channels.

Your apparent effort to use the issue of the origin of the virus in order to shift accountability from President Trump and his top political advisers to Dr. Anthony Fauci, a respected civil servant who has served with distinction under seven Presidents, is an irresponsible gambit that we urge you to abandon.

The letter addressed to Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA), Ranking Member of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, was sent and signed by is signed by Representative James E. Clyburn (D-SC), Chairman of the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis and Representative Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform.

House committees are known for their rounds of 5-minute public preening and posturing, as they turn questions into speeches and campaign sound bites. Stop it!

STFU and answer the questions…

(1)   Did the virus originate in China?

(2)   Did it originate from the Wuhan Institute of Virology?

(3)   Were they experimenting with “gain of function” research with humanized mice?

(4)   Did the U.S. contribute anything (time, effort, money, samples) to this research?

(5)   Was there a concurrent military biowarfare component to the research?

(6)   Was the lab leak intentional, possibly as an experiment that got out of hand?

(7)   Was the lab leak accidental, possibly due to sloppy laboratory protocols?

(8)   Was there a failure in U.S. oversight?

(9)   Was there any self-dealing or conflicts of interests involving U.S. citizens or government officials?

(10) Was there a deliberate attempt to cover up events related to the pandemic by any parties?

(11)  Should China be sanctioned?

(12)  Should complicit Americans be sanctioned?

Bottom line…

Once again, we find the progressive communist democrats projecting their bad behavior on the opposition -- and the GOP too cowardly to push back.

It is doubtful if anything will get done before the 2022 election by design.

We are so screwed.
