Dave Boyer and Stephen Dinan at The Washington Times recently reported on plans by president Trump to hold China accountable for the virus. Here are excerpts from the article with a Nikitas3.com comment after each excerpt:
Washington Times reports: President Trump is stepping up his confrontations with China as the U.S. death toll mounts from the COVID-19 pandemic, blocking trade with Chinese tech giant Huawei, halting some U.S. retirement investments in China and floating the suggestion that Beijing should compensate the world for the coronavirus first discovered in Wuhan.
The president, who once boasted of his warm relationship with Chinese President Xi Jinping, has cut off communications for now with Mr. Xi, even as both sides negotiate quietly to uphold the massive trade deal signed at the White House in January.
Nikitas3.com comment: Nikitas3.com has suggested that China owes the world $20 TRILLION in damages for the epidemic. After all, China blocked travel within China from the infected area to the rest of China to save China from the virus, but allowed infected Chinese to fly around the world. This was obviously an intentional act designed to spread the virus. China must pay. The global economy is $85 trillion per year, so $20 trillion sounds like a good start.
Washington Times reports: “For sure, (Trump’s) personal rhetoric has changed,” said James Carafano, a national security specialist at The Heritage Foundation. “Trump has always liked to play the good cop in our ‘good cop, bad cop’ diplomacy. His role has sharpened. In the great power competition, it’s ‘game on.’”
But Mr. Carafano said the president’s strategy “has always been making across-the-board military, diplomatic, economic challenges to Beijing where they are impinging on vital U.S. interests. That’s how to you get to stable relationship.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Yes, the president is a real leader. He has been willing to negotiate with our enemies as president but he is not a sucker. It will be great to watch him take on China because Trump is now very angry.
Washington Times reports: The escalating feud with China also meshes with the president’s campaign strategy of portraying presumptive Democratic nominee Joseph R. Biden as too soft on China. It’s a subject of the campaign’s $10 million nationwide ad blitz against Mr. Biden that began Thursday, and aides say the theme will be prominent through Election Day.
In a fundraising email to supporters on Sunday, the Trump campaign said the “fake news media and their corrupt Democrat Partners will defend Sleepy Joe until the end. They don’t care that he’s in bed with China and wants to see America fail.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Great. Trump has always hammered his political opponents rather than acting like Mr. Softee, like Mitt Romney did in losing the 2102 president election. Biden is fatally susceptible on the charges of colluding with China through his corrupt son Hunter.
Washington Times reports: The American public’s views of China have soured during COVID-19 shutdowns. The Pew Research Center found last month that 66% of respondents had a negative opinion of China, the highest percentage recorded since Pew began asking the question in 2005. Only 26% of Americans had a favorable attitude.
“There is a domestic component,” Mr. Carafano said. “Across the board, Americans rightfully blame the failures of the Chinese Communist Party for the global pandemic outbreak.”
Nikitas3.com comment: And this is happening precisely as all top Democrats and Fake News media skunks are trying to blame president Trump for the virus and to take the focus off of evil China. We need to get 66% up to 100%. Already that 66% is going to ruin Democrats at the polls in November since they are in bed with China.
Washington Times reports: The Commerce Department moved Friday to block global chip supplies to blacklisted telecomm giant Huawei Technologies. A new rule expands U.S. authority to require licenses for sale of semiconductors to Huawei, increasing Washington’s ability to halt exports to the world’s second-largest maker of smartphones.
Sen. Ben Sasse, Nebraska Republican and a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said the rule was long overdue to prevent the “Chinese Communist Party’s tech puppet from obtaining U.S. semiconductor technology.”
Nikitas3.com comment: Fantastic. Trump has a spine. No Democrat would ever do this. Let us hope that Trump ratchets up the pressure more and more on the most evil nation in the world.
Washington Times reports: “The United States needs to strangle Huawei,” Mr. Sasse said. “Modern wars are fought with semiconductors, and we were letting Huawei use our American designs. This is pretty simple: Chip companies that depend on American technology can’t jump into bed with the Chinese Communist Party.”
Nikitas3.com comment: This is strong language from a mealy-mouthed, anti-Trump Republican. So finally Republicans and conservatives are getting galvanized over China. Good.
Washington Times reports: In response, China’s government-controlled Global Times said Beijing was ready to put U.S. companies on an “unreliable entity list.”
China is lashing out at American lawmakers who are trying to hold it accountable in U.S. courts for spreading the coronavirus. According a Global Times report, Beijing is ready to “hit back” with its own sanctions.
Nikitas3.com comment: This is a joke. China relies 100% on American technology to run its economy. Chinese people are dimwits; they are not anywhere near smart enough to invent anything like the computer or the light bulb. Their biggest contribution to global technology has been chopsticks. Sasse is right. We should “strangle” all of China after they have tried to kill the whole world with their virus.
Washington Times reports: The communist government is suggesting that China’s massive economy could halt investments in (American) states represented by those who attempt to assign blame. At least four members of Congress “will be put on China’s sanctions list,” said the Global Times, citing “sources close to the matter.”
A number of lawmakers were named in the story, but those who drew particular attention from the Chinese press were Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, Josh Hawley of Missouri, and Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey, all Republicans.
Nikitas3.com comment: Big deal. The US should stop all Chinese investment in the US and seize all Chinese assets in the US as damages for the virus. We should expel all Chinese nationals currently residing in the US.
Washington Times reports: The White House pressured the board that runs the retirement savings program for federal employees and military personnel last week to halt, at least temporarily, a plan to invest funds in Chinese businesses.
Nikitas3.com comment: Good. The whole world should defund China’s economy. The US should start by not re-paying China more than $1 trillion in US debt paper that China holds.
Washington Times reports: White House trade adviser Peter Navarro said Saturday that there needs to be a broader discussion on hitting China for “compensatory damages” because of the way it handled the coronavirus outbreak.
“I think there needs to be a national discussion — has to be bipartisan — about compensatory damages by a country that inflicted this pandemic on the world,” Mr. Navarro said on Fox Business. “This crisis, and China’s role in virtually manufacturing this whole crisis, we need to have a national discussion.”
“It should have been stopped in China before it got out to the world — 186 countries are affected,” Mr. Trump said. “Russia is now badly affected, France is badly affected. Look at Italy, look at Spain — all of these great countries, in many cases, have had to fight through this. It’s a terrible thing that happened. It should have been stopped right at the source, but it wasn’t.”
Nikitas3.com comment: As Nikitas3.com suggested, $20 trillion would be a good start.
Cuomo Makes Sexist Comment in Time of Crisis
Left-wing Democrat New York state governor Andrew Cuomo took a coronavirus test during one of his daily press briefings. He said to the female doctor administering the test, “Nice to see you doctor. You make that gown look good…” He said this even through she had on a mask and plastic shield over her face.
Naturally the Fake News media will ignore this brazenly sexist comment since it comes from a Democrat neanderthal like Cuomo. But this should be noted widely that Cuomo was acting like a crude womanizer since we know that most liberal males cannot stop themselves from hitting on every woman who crosses their path, as we saw with Bill Clinton.
This is why we should be taking Tara Reade’s allegations against Joe Biden seriously. We have dozens of personal testimonials, videos and photos of Biden acting inappropriately with women, grabbing them, kissing them, sniffing them, and making them feel uncomfortable. There are “Creepy Joe Biden” videos of Biden groping, kissing and talking suggestively to young girls, and even little girls, on YouTube.
If you want to see a brief but very ugly video of Biden groping and harassing little girls, go here. At the beginning of the video Biden puts his hand on the undeveloped breast of a little girl, who is obviously distressed about it. Then at 1:52 of the video Biden grabs the breast of a second young girl.
This guy is totally sick. Yet despite all of this clear proof of a “pattern of behavior” toward women and even little girls, the Fake News media and Democrats are covering up for Biden’s behavior every minute. It won’t work. Trump will crush Biden in November, including on this issue.
State of Oregon Threatens Salon Owner’s Children
The state of Oregon, which is controlled by a corrupt Democrat governor, has actually threatened the children of a hair salon owner who said she was going to break the state’s virus lockdown. Breitbart News reported:
Lindsey Graham, a salon owner in Salem, Oregon, detailed how state authorities dispatched child protective services (CPS) to her home as part of their response to her ongoing business operations in defiance of Gov. Kate Brown’s (D-OR) statewide “stay-at-home” order.
Graham, owner of Glamour Salon, described “harassment” and “bullying” directed against her by the government on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday in an interview with host Joel Pollak.
Graham recalled how an agent from Oregon’s Child Protective Services, a subsidiary of the state’s Department of Human Services (DHS), was sent to her home on the same day as the reopening of her hair salon.
“On May 7th, I got a phone call from my nanny,” said Graham. “As soon as I went to work, a DHS officer came to my home and tried to speak to her, and she said, ‘I don’t feel comfortable answering any questions for you. I think you need to call the homeowner.’ So DHS basically stopped by my house and said they had some claims against me and my family about our home being unfit.”
The same CPS agent returned to Graham’s home the following Monday, and he separated Graham and her husband from their six-year-old son in order to privately interview the child. Graham is also the mother of a three-year-old girl and an eight-week-old son.
Graham stated, “[The CPS agent] came back to my home, and my intention was, ‘Great, let this guy in and let him see what a great, loving, clean, and happy home we have, so he’ll just kind of get out of here.’ … He interviewed myself and my husband in separate rooms. He interviewed my six-year-old son in a separate room, and he searched our home. He made me lift up toilet seats and open our fridge. None of this is warranted. These are all bogus claims. Our home is completely safe and always has been, so this is definitely some kind of vendetta, sending a government agency after my family.”
This is very sick, but this is your Democrat party today. They are like the communist party in China. First they come after you, then they come after your children.
Voter Fraud in Michigan
The Washington Times reported:
A Democratic city clerk in Michigan who had been honored by the state party for her work was charged this week with multiple felonies related to charges of altering absentee ballots.
Sherikia Hawkins was arraigned Monday in Southfield, Michigan, on six counts related to the 2018 election including forging public documents and misconduct in office and was released on $15,000 bond, according to National Review Online.
“The alleged misconduct was discovered after the Oakland County Clerk’s Office noticed that 193 voter files had been changed to reflect that the voters failed to include a valid signature or return date, when all of the implicated voters had in fact included both items. The county clerk’s office later discovered the original voter files in the trash at the election-division office,” National Review wrote.
This is how Democrats steal elections, precinct by precinct. This is happening all over the country and ultimately involves millions of votes. And by the way, Hawkins is black. Let us hope that she enjoys being with all of her fellow blacks in jail.
Face Masks are New Show of Democrat Overkill
The increasing use of face masks to allegedly fight the spread of the coronavirus is yet another sign of liberal control.
Leftists and Democrats love to see people walking around looking like fools wearing masks under government orders. It is a direct sign of how much power that the Democrats have over the people. You can see each person who has a mask.
Yet studies are coming out showing that masks don’t do much to stop the virus while they actually can cause other serious health problems. This is typical of the left – it is like the ‘greenies’ proclaiming that there is a ‘climate crisis’ and then telling us to use grossly inefficient windmills and solar panels, which only are making the situation worse.
And suddenly, within the past few weeks, we have face masks being widely worn all around the country. In Massachusetts you cannot even go into WalMart or Home Depot or a grocery store without a mask. To address the problem, Nikitas3.com pulls up my T-shirt and holds it over my mouth to make it look like I am complying. I will never wear one of those surgical-type masks.
Pope is Moving to Legitimize Communist China
After communist China unleashed its virus, it is cultivating its image all over the world to compensate for its lost reputation. Breitbart News reports:
The Vatican is pulling out all the stops to woo Beijing into full diplomatic relations, according to veteran Vatican journalist John L. Allen, Jr.
In an article Sunday in Crux, a U.S.-based online Catholic news outlet, Allen wrote that the Vatican is “covetous of a relationship with China, and often apparently willing to stifle objections and give away a great deal” in order to make headway.
In short, “the Vatican is moving full-steam ahead in its courtship of Beijing, with the ultimate prize remaining full diplomatic relations, a secure legal standing for the church, and partnerships on the global stage,” Allen wrote.
His case in point was the notorious 2018 provisional accord between the Holy See and the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) on the naming of Chinese bishops, a move that received an avalanche of criticism at the time, which has only been aggravated by ongoing CCP aggressions against Christians in the country after the deal was inked.
“I would like to go to Beijing,” Francis said. “I love China.”
Right, “I love China…” Nikitas3.com has pointed out for years that this pope is a marxist. He studied communism as a youth in Argentina and his policies have all been to dismantle traditional Christian doctrine. Francis knows that China will never reciprocate by giving freedom to Christians in China. He is probably seeking better relations in exchange for billions in secret Chinese contributions to the Vatican. Who knows what else is going on, but this evil pope is in cahoots with China.
