United Stated media have been rabid in their obsession to undermine the stability of the nation and the presidency. Although some scientists are suggesting the Covid-19 Virus started in a Wuhan University laboratory or in the adjacent animal market, this epidemic has been another chance for reporters to mock and malign saying President Trump was the real cause.
However, the media has been outed once again for generating lies and burying negative international news about China, the Wuhan Flu, the connection between China and Italy, and the arrest of Harvard University professor and Chinese spies.
On January 28, 2020, authorities arrested Dr. Charles Lieber, 60, chair of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, on charges of making a materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statement.
Prosecutors say that Lieber was paid $50,000 per month and given $150,000 a year for living expenses by China’s communist government. He was also given $1.5 million to build a laboratory in, yes, Wuhan. Plus, Harvard University paid him.
“Unbeknownst to Harvard University beginning in 2011, Lieber became a ‘Strategic Scientist’ at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China and was a contractual participant in China’s Thousand Talents Plan from in or about 2012 to 2017,” the Dept. of Justice statement said. Lieber lied to investigators about his involvement.
Also, two Chinese researchers here were arrested. Yanqing Ye was determined to be a Lieutenant of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), the armed forces of the People’s Republic of China and member of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). She is charged with stealing defense secrets by accessing US military websites and not divulging her connection to the Chinese military.
Zaosong Zheng is charged with stealing 21 vials of biological research and attempting to smuggle them out of the United States to China. Federal officers at Logan Airport discovered the vials hidden in a sock inside one of Zheng’s bags, and not properly packaged.
It is alleged that initially Zheng lied to officers about the contents of his luggage, but later admitted he had stolen the vials from a lab at Beth Israel Medical Center. Zheng stated that he intended to bring the vials to China to use them to conduct research in his own laboratory and publish the results under his own name.
Their arrest and connection to WUT and dabbling in stealing defense secrets and biological research crimes may just be a coincidence to another world-rocking virus outbreak in China or there could be a connection.
The media falsely asserts that America is like Italy and Italians when it comes to medical care, national health and politics. According to news barkers, America is just 10-days behind the Italians’ Wuhan disaster statistics. This is absurd.
However, you may have missed the marriage between Peking Duck and Pizza.
Italy became the first major Western power to endorse China's "Belt and Road" Infrastructure Project (BRI), as Italy looked for ways to revive its struggling economy. These are economic partnerships designed to benefit the host country but mainly to extend China’s economic control to 100 nations.
This agreement has led to thousands of Chinese moving to Italy and buying and operating businesses. Many Chinese are concentrated in the Lombardy region where the Wuhan Flu epicenter is for Italy.
Interestingly, the China Morning Post is suggesting the Wuhan Flu started in Lombardy and was exported to Wuhan. Italy now leads the world in Wuhan Flu deaths but not infected people. China has had more sick people. Italians say there was a strange pneumonia circulating among their population prior to the noted outbreak of illness in Wuhan.
The average age of people dying in Italy is 81 with Italy having the second oldest population in the world (Japan #1). And Italians like cigarettes (41st in world use – average1493 cigs a year for those over 14 yrs. old).
Combine this with a socialist Obamacare single payer health system and there is a perfect disease scenario to kill the elderly with compromised immune systems. Under Italy’s socialist medical care all sick folks head to the ER. Italian ERs collapsed in less than 2 weeks.
Japan is older, smokes more but has better health care than Italy. If you want to live long and dangerously keep a top medical professional nearby.
The US had 419 Corona Virus deaths by 3/22, China 3,270 and Italy 5,476. The US total for “regular” flu-related deaths for January-February 2020 is 18,000 with 29 million experiencing just symptoms.
Those in poor health die every year from a variety of ailments because their immune systems are compromised (2017 flu/pneumonia 55,672 dead; lower respiratory ailments 160,201). As the saying goes, no one is getting out alive. We just don’t all go together.
Other death tolls far greater than Corona that we could reduce each year with token national mobilization compared to Covid-19 are self- harm 47,173 (2017) and drug over-doses killing more than 72,000 (2017). Just sayin’.
