House GOP Set to Punish China for Coronavirus Pandemic in Stunning Move

BOOM!

Published

As soon as COVID-19 began popping up in cities outside of China, health officials could tell that something was amiss.  The data that Beijing had shared with them in no way resembled the triage situation they were dealing with on the ground, and whispers of a potential Chinese coverup were soon drowned out by the panic of the pandemic itself.

Now that we are beginning to emerge from our coronavirus crisis, our vision is a bit clearer.  We can now truly understand what a heinous act it was for China to downplay the severity of the virus at the onset, and with evidence now pointing to the possibility that the whole thing was a lab accident in Wuhan, there are many who’ve begun to express their beliefs that China could be capable for the mess.

You can count Kevin McCarthy among those people.

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday formally laid out a plan to hold the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) accountable for the coronavirus pandemic, a “roadmap” that includes eight steps Congress can take to do so.

Key recommendations from the plan include a formal push to strip Beijing of the Winter Olympics next year as well as opening up China to wrongful death lawsuits in federal court here from people who lost loved ones to the virus. McCarthy also pushes for funding bans from U.S. tax dollars going to places like the Wuhan Institute of Virology and to any gain-of-function virus research being conducted by China–and he calls for a counterintelligence investigation into the World Health Organization (WHO) and for its director-general Dr. Tedros to resign.

McCarthy was not happy.

“However, despite the CCP’s duplicity, the United States stands resilient,” McCarthy wrote. “It is the American men and women who played a role in creating and distributing the multiple available vaccines who we have to thank as we defeat this virus, from President Trump and his Administration to scientists and truck drivers, nurses and factory line workers. The spirit and determination we’ve seen over the last year and a half should make us all proud to be part of this country. This isn’t a point of Republican pride. It is American pride — Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike, because when our country is under siege, manmade or otherwise, we stand together. However, the path forward to address this threat and bring the responsible parties to justice is where we have diverged.”

China has been less than helpful when it comes to investigating the lab-leak hypothesis, and there is little doubt that McCarthy’s plan will receive a swift and stern response from the communist regime in Beijing.

VIDEO: AOC’s Mask Hypocrisy Captured on Camera

What a phony!

Do as I say, not as I do. It has become the Democratic motto of late, with a vast number of liberal-leaning lawmakers eschewing their own advice, time and again, as it pertains to COVID-19 precautions. Former President Barack Obama was set to have nearly 700 guests over to his Martha’s Vineyard mansion for a birthday party in the coming days, before he was shamed into culling the guest list by media pressure. Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser attended an indoor wedding mask-less, despite pushing a mask mandate for businesses in the city. And now, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been caught faking it in terms of coronavirus safety. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., masked up for a photo op with activists on the steps of the U.S. Capitol — but only for the picture, a viral video shows. Ocasio-Cortez dropped her coronavirus mask after the snap Monday, when she posed with protesters in support of a new eviction moratorium. She was joined by fellow progressive Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. The congresswoman was maskless while sitting on the steps before the photo, but donned her gray mask before Markey sat down and the picture was snapped. “Housing is a human right,” the group said as the picture was taken, with someone after the photo saying “Everybody say ‘whiskey.’” The moment was captured on video. https://twitter.com/BreitbartNews/status/1422754744968302595?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1422754744968302595%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.foxnews.com%2Fpolitics%2Faoc-coronavirus-mask-capitol AOC has been highly efficient as it pertains to using social media to build her brand, but, should this go viral, it could make the limelight burn just a little bit hotter.

Beantown Mayor says Proof of Immunization is Akin to Slavery

Slavery, like The Holocaust, is not to be summoned into the conversation lightly.

No matter how strongly you may feel on a particular subject, and no matter how personally offended you might be by something, unless that thing is literally slavery, it’s best not to try to compare it to actual slavery. We get it:  Hyperbole sells.  Hyperbole keeps you in the headlines, and it gets your name on the lips of folks the nation over in a hurry. But slavery is far too immoral and corrupt and horrid a thing to go around using it willy-nilly to make political points. The mayor of Boston is learning this lesson the hard way this week. NewsCenter 5’s Sharman Sacchetti posed the question to Mayor Kim Janey Tuesday, after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that proof of COVID-19 vaccination will soon be required for entering restaurants, gyms and indoor venues. The new requirement, which will be phased in over several weeks in August and September, is the most aggressive step New York has taken yet to curb a surge in cases caused by the delta variant. People will have to show proof that they have had at least one dose of a vaccine. “The goal here is to convince everyone that this is the time,” de Blasio said. “If we’re going to stop the delta variant, the time is now. And that means getting vaccinated right now.” And then… She went on to compare vaccine passports or credentials to documentation requirements during slavery and the Jim Crow era. Janey also drew a comparison to the so-called birtherism conspiracy theory. “There’s a long history in this country of people needing to show their papers,” said Janey. “During slavery, post-slavery, as recent as you know what immigrant population has to go through here. We heard Trump with the birth certificate nonsense. Here we want to make…
