Kevin McCarthy Lays Out Plan for House Republicans to Hold China Accountable for Coronavirus Pandemic

Published

House GOP Leader Kevin McCarthy on Monday formally laid out a plan to hold the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) accountable for the coronavirus pandemic, a “roadmap” that includes eight steps Congress can take to do so.
Key recommendations from the plan include a formal push to strip Beijing of the Winter Olympics next year as well as opening up China to wrongful death lawsuits in federal court here from people who lost loved ones to the virus. McCarthy also pushes for funding bans from U.S. tax dollars going to places like the Wuhan Institute of Virology and to any gain-of-function virus research being conducted by China–and he calls for a counterintelligence investigation into the World Health Organization (WHO) and for its director-general Dr. Tedros to resign.

“Last week, I wrote to you saying that our country was dealt a significant blow by the coronavirus and that the Democrats in Congress and the White House have no plan to hold China accountable,” McCarthy wrote in an open letter to the House GOP conference on Monday.
“This letter offers eight pillars we will introduce to deliver transparency and justice as Republicans continue to lead on behalf of the American people. As of June, more than 600,000 Americans and 3.8 million people have died worldwide as a result of Covid-19. The unfortunate reality is that countless friends and family members could have been saved had it not been for the deception of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). A March 2020 report by the University of Southampton found if interventions in China could have been conducted one, two, or three weeks earlier, cases could have been reduced by 66 percent, 86 percent and 95 percent respectively. Evidence continues to indicate that the CCP intentionally hid information and lied about what it knew to be true about the virus. Additionally, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom knowingly and willfully downplayed or outright denied the Chinese government’s malfeasance, and instead chose to cower to the CCP rather than stand up for the international community.”
McCarthy’s letter puts the blame squarely on the Chinese Communist Party, as he writes that he is “deeply angry about the avoidable loss of life, hope, and futures resulting from the CCP’s actions” and that the CCP “and their conspirators must be held accountable.”

“However, despite the CCP’s duplicity, the United States stands resilient,” McCarthy wrote. “It is the American men and women who played a role in creating and distributing the multiple available vaccines who we have to thank as we defeat this virus, from President Trump and his Administration to scientists and truck drivers, nurses and factory line workers. The spirit and determination we’ve seen over the last year and a half should make us all proud to be part of this country. This isn’t a point of Republican pride. It is American pride — Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike, because when our country is under siege, manmade or otherwise, we stand together. However, the path forward to address this threat and bring the responsible parties to justice is where we have diverged.”
McCarthy also noted that Democrat President Joe Biden “has failed to utilize any of his broad powers to hold China accountable and has willingly given up valuable leverage to force constructive change at the WHO” and that American cannot count on Biden or the Democrats in Congress to do anything to hold China accountable. But, he said, Republicans in the House have rolled out a variety of measures that he is crystallizing into this eight-pillar plan to hold China accountable.
“But we have and will continue to fight. Members throughout the conference have been speaking up, getting to work, and making it known House Republicans will always stand up for America,” McCarthy wrote. “Whip Steve Scalise and the Republican Members on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis led our conference (over 200 members) in demanding Speaker Nancy Pelosi allow a congressional probe into the virus’s origins. Last week, Chairwoman Elise Stefanik and Congressman Rob Wittman introduced legislation to sanction Chinese officials involved in the coverup. Foreign Affairs Ranking Member Mike McCaul has leveraged his committee and the China Task Force to ensure accountability on the CCP and WHO. Congressman Dan Crenshaw introduced legislation last year giving Americans the opportunity to seek damages from China’s deception. Congresswoman Ann Wagner and Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick have also introduced legislation to do the same. These are just a few examples.  To all of our members, your work is not unnoticed by the rest of America.”
The eight pillars from McCarthy are broken into two four-part sections, the first “Transparency” and the second “Justice.”
The first pillar under transparency calls for “declassification of intelligence” and notes that Republicans intend to roll out legislation “to require declassification of information related to the origins of Covid-19, including in any report that comes from President Biden’s recent request.”

The second pillar calls for banning gain of function research in China and with China, banning U.S. tax dollars from going to such matters. The third pillar bans National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding from going to any “Malevolent Foreign Governments.”
“Congress should prohibit NIH funding to grantees or subgrantees from doing research with irresponsible foreign governments or entities who are intent on harming the United States, its allies, or the American people, such as China, Russia, Iran, or North Korea,” McCarthy writes under the third pillar.
The fourth pillar calls for an “overhaul” of the World Health Organization (WHO) and for a counterintelligence investigation into its actions. “WHO Director-General Tedros should step down from his post at the WHO; Taiwan should be granted observer status at the WHO; and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, in partnership with the U.S. Intelligence Community, should conduct a counterintelligence investigation into the U.S. medical research establishment to determine the extent to which the governments of China, Russia, Iran, and North Korea have infiltrated critical U.S. organizations,” McCarthy writes under this pillar.
The fifth pillar in the plan—and the first under the “Justice” section—demands Biden continue investigations and that he utilize “existing authorities” to determine the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
The sixth pillar calls for sanctions and visa restrictions on those responsible for covering up the pandemic. “Congress should pass a new sanctions regime imposing economic sanctions and visa and admissibility restrictions on those in China, associated with the CCP, WHO, or other international organizations who knowingly and willfully participated in the Covid-19 coverup,” McCarthy writes.
The seventh pillar calls for formally waiving China’s sovereign immunity so Americans who lost loved ones to coronavirus can sue in federal court over wrongful death. “The families of those who have died from Covid-19 should be given the option to file suit against the Chinese government for damages incurred as a result of the reckless conduct of the CCP. Several Republican members, including Dan Crenshaw, Ann Wagner, and Brian Fitzpatrick, have introduced legislation allowing such lawsuits to go forward,” McCarthy writes.
McCarthy had first suggested he was open to such a proposal in a Breitbart News Saturday appearance a couple weeks ago.
The eight pillar calls to relocate the Winter Olympics next year away from China. “Given the CCP’s active coverup of Covid-19 and contribution to the 3.8 million deaths worldwide, China should not be rewarded by allowing Beijing to host the Winter Olympics in 2022,” McCarthy writes.

FAUCI STILL LYING: ‘DISTORTION TO SAY THAT WE DELIBERATELY SUPPRESSED’ COVID LAB LEAK THEORY

Published

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci said Wednesday on “CBS This Morning” that it was “a bit of a distortion to say that we deliberately suppressed” the so-called lab leak theory that coronavirus originated from a lab in Wuhan, China.

Co-host Tony Dokoupil said, “We also asked Dr. Fauci about competing theories on the origin of the coronavirus, including the idea that it started not in nature but in a lab in Wuhan, China.”

Fauci said, “Well, first of all, Tony, most of the scientists who know about virus phylogeny and biology will stay from a biological standpoint. It’s still more likely this is a natural occurrence. We have always kept an open mind. End of January, beginning of February, when people looked at the virus and said, this could be something that came from a lab, I brought together a group of scientists. I let people know about it. People forget that, but if you go back then, even though you lean towards feeling this is more likely a natural occurrence, we’ve always felt you’ve got to keep an open mind, all of us. We didn’t get up and started announcing it, but we’ve always said keep an open mind and continue to look.”

He continued, “So I think it’s a bit of a distortion to say that we deliberately suppressed that. When you’re a scientist until you definitively prove something, the nature of science, Tony, is to always keep an open mind, and that’s what we did. You can feel from a virological standpoint looking at things that this is going to be more likely a natural occurrence.”

Fauci added, “In addition to there being a lab in Wuhan, there are these wet markets where you have the human-animal interface that is a perfect set-up for the animal-to-human jump. You keep open the possibilities, and you can have a strong opinion of one without closing your mind. That’s what I and many of the scientists have done.”

Jon Stewart: COVID Pandemic ‘More Than Likely Caused by Science’ – ‘This Is Not a Conspiracy’

During an interview aired on Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” comedian Jon Stewart said that the coronavirus pandemic was “more than likely caused by science.” And seemingly mocked claims that the virus originated naturally.
Stewart said, “I think we owe a great debt of gratitude to science. Science has, in many ways, helped ease the suffering of this pandemic, which was more than likely caused by science.”

He later added, “Oh my God, there’s a novel respiratory coronavirus overtaking Wuhan, China. What do we do? Oh, you know who we could ask, the Wuhan novel respiratory coronavirus lab. The disease is the same name as the lab. That’s just a little too weird, don’t you think? And then they ask those scientists, they’re like…’So, wait a minute, you work at the Wuhan respiratory coronavirus lab, how did this happen?’ And they’re like, ‘Uhh, a pangolin kissed a turtle?’”
Stewart further stated, “Oh my God, there’s been an outbreak of chocolatey goodness near Hershey, Pennsylvania. What do you think happened? Oh, I don’t know maybe a steam shovel mated with a cocoa bean. Or it’s the [bleep] chocolate factory. Maybe that’s it.”
Colbert then said that White House Chief Medical Adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci and NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins have said the lab leak theory should be investigated.

Stewart responded, “Stop with the logic and people and things. The name of the disease is on the building.”
Colbert then suggested that maybe the reason the lab is located in Wuhan is because there are a lot of novel coronaviruses in Wuhan due to the bat population.
Stewart then stated, “It’s a local specialty. And it’s the only place to find bats. You won’t find bats anywhere else. Oh, wait, Austin, Texas has thousands of them that fly out of a cave every night, every night at dusk. Is there a coronavirus — an Austin coronavirus? No, there doesn’t seem to be an Austin coronavirus. The only coronavirus we have is in Wuhan, where they have a lab called, what’s the lab called again, Stephen?”
Colbert later asked, “And how long have you worked for Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI)?”
Stewart responded, “Let me tell you something about Ron Johnson — this is not a conspiracy.”
