The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is in a losing game against the condemnation of the international community that has called for an independent inquiry into the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
On April 27, CCP’s mouthpiece – CCTV, in its last breaths, viciously attacked U.S. Foreign Secretary Mike Pompeo, accusing him of “spreading a political virus and turning himself into an enemy of mankind,” adding that Pompeo “has exceeded the bottom line of being human.”
The Communist media outlet wrote in an editorial on Sunday defaming Pompeo: “Despite being the chief diplomat of the US, he totally betrayed the basic responsibility with which he is entrusted to promote international understanding. He has become the enemy of world peace.”
This is not the first time the CCP regime has blasted Pompeo for his “personal hatred of the Chinese political system” (remarks of the CCP’s Global Times). The world has a clear mind that the CCP is anti-human and is the enemy of all humanity.
Pompeo claimed that the CCP is using “classic communist disinformation” to shift the focus from the crisis while speaking on Fox News Thursday, asserting that President Donald Trump also blamed China for the global pandemic.
‘China caused an enormous amount of pain, loss of life and now a huge challenge for the global economy and the American economy as well by not sharing the information they had,’ Pompeo said.
More than 3.2 million people worldwide have been infected with Covid-19, according to Johns Hopkins University data. At least 228,000 people have died.
Pompeo continued by expressing worry that there was a lot that the Chinese government had not disclosed about its handling of COVID-19 outbreak.
‘I’m still concerned there are things we don’t know. We don’t know the history, and we haven’t been able to get our team on the ground to do the work it needs to do,’ Pompeo said.
‘This is an ongoing challenge in that the Chinese Communist Party and the World Health Organization have failed to do the things they have the responsibility to do when they have a pandemic inside of their country.’
Pompeo warned at his Fox News interview that China will “pay a price for what they did” and said that the administration was working towards tackling the virus after its delayed response.
“[Americans] know this is a result of the virus that originated in Wuhan, China, and they know the Chinese government didn’t do the things it needed to do,” he claimed.
“I’ve been heartened to see Australia, other countries joining us, demanding an investigation because while we know this started in Wuhan, China, we don’t yet know from where it started,” Pompeo said. “And in spite of our best efforts to get experts on the ground, they continue to try and hide and obfuscate.”
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Thursday the world needed to learn from the outbreak, and an independent inquiry was needed.
“It would seem entirely reasonable and sensible that the world would want to have an independent assessment of how this all occurred, so we can learn the lessons and prevent it from happening again,” Morrison said, “I think it is a fairly obvious and common sense suggestion, that I believe there will be support for.”
Intelligence agencies from the ‘Five Eyes’ network comprising of Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK, and the US are examining the work of two staffers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The president of the European Commission has also backed calls for a probe into the origin of the coronavirus but said China should be involved in the process, CNBC reported.
Lawmakers in countries like Germany and Sweden have also asked for an investigation into the virus.
“The Chinese Communist Party is going to have to pay,” former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.” “I think the world’s going to hold them in judgement, and that judgement is not going to be very pretty. They owe trillions, if not tens of trillions of dollars,” Bannon added.
“They tried to protect it going around the rest of China but they didn’t care about it going around the rest of the world,” said Bannon, “A more transparent response from the Chinese government could have saved lives and prevented economic damage.”
“Let’s see what happens with their investigation. But we’re doing investigations also,” Donald Trump said at a White House news conference on Saturday. “If it was a mistake, a mistake is a mistake. But if they were knowingly responsible, yeah, then there should be consequences.”
Trump has said China “will do anything they can” to make him lose his re-election bid, stepping up his criticism of Beijing amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The Trump administration is planning to punish the Chinese Communist Party for its perceived role in the coronavirus pandemic — including possible sanctions and cancellation of US debt, according to a new report.
CCP killer Guo Wengui said in his latest live broadcast, “President Trump responded to the US$190 billion of compensation package delivered by Germany. His speech at the Rose Garden makes clear that we’ll make sure the CCP will be held accountable for all these. I am going to tell you how much they are proposing: 20 trillion US dollars! Let wait and see.”
The call for investigations and an independent inquiry not only comes from the US and its close allies, but it will also be responded by other countries, including the so-called “friends” of the CCP regime.
Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin said he has tested positive for COVID-19, according to the Kremlin on Thursday.
“I just learned that I have tested positive for the coronavirus,” Mishustin told Russian President Vladimir Putin during a video conference, the Kremlin said in a statement.
In a rare diplomatic gesture, Putin just signed a joint statement with Donald Trump to commemorate the meeting of troops at the end of World War II. Will the Russians join the call for investigations? We will also wait and see.
Yesterday, the CCP General Secretary Xi Jinping exchanged telephone calls with leaders of the Czech Republic and Peru.
According to Xinhua, Xi told his friendly Czech President Milos Zeman that China is ready to share coronavirus containment information and experience with the Czech side via bilateral channels and the mechanism for cooperation between China and Central and Eastern European countries, among others.
The CCP leadership is said to have its annual national conferences on May 22. Will these conferences be held successfully? Let’s wait and see.
Everything has already started.
