Three years ago on these pages I posed the question Will the Coronavirus Pandemic Derail China’s Global Ambitions?. My answer: only if Donald Trump were to be re-elected as President in 2020 will China’s ambitions be derailed; on the other hand, if any of the Democrat candidates for president were to win, then China would not pay a price but would instead achieve even more power and dominance as a pliable and compromised Democrat party would be in power.
The American people failed to understand that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the Democrat Party had formed an unspoken de facto alliance to defeat Trump in 2020. The unrelenting drumbeat for unprecedented lockdowns to ostensibly achieve net-zero Covid-19 infections and the gross exaggeration of fatalities were among the primary weapons in their arsenal.
Adquira o livro de Heitor De Paola:
"O EIXO DO MAL LATINO AMERICANO E A NOVA ORDEM MUNDIAL"
For the first time in American history, a major political party was essentially in league with a hostile foreign power to defeat an incumbent president that posed a threat to their respective interests.
Donald Trump was well aware of this poisonous alliance and had often railed against the Communist Chinese. However, instead of relying on his nearly always infallible gut instincts that had propelled him to the presidency as well as worldwide fame and fortune, Trump, perhaps because it was an election year, foolishly acquiesced to this cabal’s covid-19 tactics.
Further, and for the same reason, he hesitated to fire those around him who were not only incompetent but in league with the Democrat/CCP axis, thereby setting up the election debacle of November 3, 2020.
Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a virologist who fled from China and worked in the field of coronavirus research, claimed in the summer of 2020 that Covid-19 not only originated at the Wuhan Institute of Virology but it was deliberately released by the Communist Chinese. There is now wide consensus that the virus escaped from the Institute, and many are suspicious that it was perhaps deliberately released.
The virus was circulating among humans in China and Europe as early as October/November of 2019. Yet it took nearly three months until January 2020 for China to announce to the world that a new virus had ostensibly originated in a wet market in Wuhan and was rapidly spreading throughout the region.
As a follow-up, the Chinese leadership initiated choreographed lockdowns of major cities and provinces for the world to obsess over as a means of exponentially increasing fear of the virus in the West.
However, their official fatality numbers were absurdly low and remained so for over two years as China has reported a miniscule total death toll of just 4,638 or .0003% of their population (1.5 Billion) during this period. This appears to have been yet another ploy that enabled them to falsely tout to the world, and in particular the United States, how successful their near total lockdowns were in controlling covid.
Duplicitously the CCP also closed down all domestic travel, but pushed to keep open foreign travel until the first of April 2020 (six months after first detecting the virus) thus creating the conduit to spread Covid-19 around the globe.
