Nikki Haley Wants Investigation Into Coronavirus Response, Says ‘We Have The Right To Answers’

Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, took the top global health organization to the woodshed amid concerns that critical, need-to-know information out of China that could have slowed the spread of the coronavirus was possibly covered up.

Haley spoke with Fox News host Sean Hannity where she stated that the current relationship between China and the World Health Organization constituted a threat to the sovereignty of the United States and thus it should be investigated.

Here’s more from The Washington Examiner:

“The United States does fund 22% of the World Health Organization,” Haley said. “But this is even bigger than the World Health Organization, this is about China’s influence into these multilateral organizations.”

Haley decried China’s involvement in several international organizations, including its recent inclusion in the United Nations Human Rights Council as the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China, continues to tear through hospitals and economies around the world.

“This is what China does,” she said. “They try and leverage and get influence. And what we’re seeing is the World Health Organization, once again, has fallen for it. And I can’t believe they’re going to go so far as lecture the president. I mean, if anything, we deserve to hold them accountable. We have the rights to answers. They need to be investigated.”

Haley also stated that Taiwanese health officials sent warning to the WHO about a human-to-human virus at the end of December, just before they accused the organization of responding too slowly to the pandemic due in large part to their allegiance to the nation of China.

“Why did it take a whole month for the World Health Organization to respond? You want to know why that is? Because China has kept Taiwan from being a member of the World Health Organization,” Haley stated.

Haley brings up a very valid concern here, one that most definitely needs to be thoroughly explored and investigated. If it turns out that the WHO has unusually strong ties to China and was attempting to help them prevent looking weak or responsible for the spread of the disease, they need to be held accountable in some way for the pandemic they helped create.

It’s only right that those who are responsible for this mess be the ones who clean it up.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
