SHOW-ME GLOBAL CHALLENGE: MISSOURI SENATOR JOSH HAWLEY DEMANDS CHINA ACCOUNTABILITY FOR CORONAVIRUS!!!



President Trump is amping down his rhetoric over the term "China Virus" as the culture war discussion quickly turned into a comedy of manners.

HOWEVER . . .

What's more important is policy and the future of world health.

With little attention from local MSM, this Senate noob is raising a notable ruckus on the topic. Checkit:

Fox News: Hawley slams China for costing world 'thousands of lives and billions of dollars' with coronavirus response

Sen. Hawley calls for a full investigation into China’s cover-up in the spread of the coronavirus . . .

Uh, you think China cares about what Josh Hawley says? Most Missourians don’t even know who he is.

^^^ Wrong.

At least he's out there saying something and standing up for the U.S.

You're just sitting around a blog with poopy pants!

Don't hate, participate!

It's not about China, it's about U.S. policy. A little reading comprehension would be nice.

It is very interesting to see how world leaders, experts, and politicians have managed to completely bungle and fuck everything on the planet up.

And this is the encore performance.

^^He's not doing anything except auditioning for a White House job, & deflecting attention away from Der Fuhrer's tardy response & ineffectual response.

Who gives themselves the authority to investigate another country's actions?

If you find they are guilty? What next?

War?

He's a talking talking head & that is all.

Hey Byron Funkhouser

Not a fan of Hawley at all but he is right here. China knows the living conditions in vast parts of China are 4th world level but do nothing about it. They keep inflicting incalculable pain on the planet and will do it again. I know it's cultural but these "wet markets" have to cease to exist and it needed to happen yesterday.

This virus was being spread to Italy through a direct flight when Chinese people were flying back and forth to Wuhan working for the fashion industry. The doctor in China was arrested for trying to warn people of the virus. So hats off to Josh Hawley for having the guts to do this and hold them accountable.

As for the Idiots who say no one knows who Josh Hawley is......should not even be in this conversation nor should they go to the polls. Amazing how many morons are out there and spew really stupid things, but that the liberal way I guess.

The doctor was trying to war of an impending crisis. Hawley is glomming on to old news and bayoneting survivors.

Imagine that, the Asians created and spread the Chinese red death, spread it all over the world without telling anyone, caused massive amounts of deaths and sick, caused dire financial losses, ruined economy’s everywhere, caused massive to the extent that people can’t get the basics to live on and bLIEron is only concerned because he thinks someone, a Republican with a brain is trying to run for President.

bLIEron would rather defend a commie country that spread death and destruction than support his own why? Because we are good and they are evil, and he is evil.

You are truly and I mean truly one sick bastard bLIEron.

8:21 - how this broke out in Wuhan (which is very much first world) has nothing to do with 4th world. China is not unlike the vast majority of countries on this planet where money drives everything. There is big influential money in wet markets. Powerful people in China either in the government or with influence in the government have gotten them to look the other way. It's really not much different from lobbyists in this country. It's not your everyday common Chinese people eating weird shit from wet markets, it's generally very powerful, wealthy Chinese. Whether this outbreak changes things, who knows? China can be very draconian with things.

With all that said, all Hawley is doing here is political posturing. What the fuck are we going to do? Seriously? If anyone thinks there's some sort of punishment we can dole out without serious repercussions, I'm all ears.

Fact is though, this administration disbanded a Pandemic Response Team that was put in place to deal with the very thing we're dealing with currently. Fact is, Trump, who is now blaming China for all this, was kissing Xi's ass via tweet, extolling the virtues of how China was dealing with the issue back in late January and talking about how he had been in communication with China as well. Fact is, Trump told anyone who would listen that this was no big deal and suddenly, miraculously, the virus cases will disappear. He spent all his time downplaying the virus and doing nothing. Currently, he's farming pretty much everything out to state and local governments and peddling in miracle cures. So, from where I sit, Trump isn't really any different than China if you're really being honest.

8:58 - Good luck with that. You really think any company is going to ditch cheap labor for expensive labor, not to mention, having to spend capital on factories and equipment? We live in a capitalist society guided by the invisible hand of the market and that invisible hand has guided companies to China for cheap labor for a better bottom line and return for investors.

It's honestly....pro American. The problem is, you, being you, want your cake and want to eat it too. So, which is it? Lower stock valuations in your 401k and giving Americans jobs and paying more for the products you buy? Or, keep those stock values up and keep the costs of your products down? There's no silver bullet.

Capitalism.

Solid response 9:15. And 9:17 - you think we're in a position to rally the world to sanction China? Do you realize how much shit the world produces is produced in China? They don't call it the factory of the world for nothing.

JUST THE FACTS MA'AM (quickie)

If you haven't figured it out yet...

1st came the repo market financial implosion (SEPT 2019).

2nd came the coronavirus global pandemic war-game exercise Event 201 (OCT 2019).

3rd came the U.S. virus seeding test (NOV 2019). "..2,290 confirmed and probable cases and 5 more deaths from a mysterious respiratory illness tied to vaping, taking the total death toll to 47 so far this year."

4th came the official Wuhan China virus emergence outbreak (DEC 2019).

RED FLAGS THROWN

2 of the U.S. top geopolitical enemies (China/Iran) quickly became the virus whipping boys.
U.S. and China were in the midst of a trade battle.
U.S. has been imposing the harshest trade sanctions on Iran to finally accomplish regime change there.
Italy was punished for being the first European nation to join China's New Silk Road initiative.
President Trump will threaten to renege on China's $1+ trillion in U.S. Treasury holdings. (2 U.S. Senators have already begun the push)
Saudi Arabia (ostensibly our ally) flooded the market with excess oil.
U.S. officials were very slow to respond to the virus, almost like they were intentionally dragging their feet (diagnostic tests, masks, international travel, quarantining the infected, etc.)
President Trump declared a national emergency on Friday March 13th (Friday the 13th symbolism was not a coincidence).
Corporate media promoted panic and the FEAR FACTOR.
We're now staring at the largest BAILOUT in American history.
And while no one's looking, the Justice Department/COG/Intelligence community/largest corporate players, are consolidating their power and further infringing on your once sacred Constitutional rights.
Without firing a shot, most of the nation is on voluntary lockdown, awaiting Big Brother's instructions.

(alright, alright, this was more than a quickie!)
Sheep get slaughtered, wolves get hunted, owls live another day. Be wise.

China is responsible for this Pandemic. Does anyone remember early January reports from China saying there is no person-to-person transmission? Does anyone remember the outcry of Chinese officials in January about any disruption of travel to China? Travel bans were racist according to Chinese state-sponsored media. These are not actions of a country seeking to be a global leader. They are a reflection of a country with tens of thousands of government monitors and party officials bent on censoring, arresting, and controlling every aspect of their citizens' lives. Whether or not it was done intentionally, China exported COVID-19 like it's cheap products - without regard for the downstream impact on the rest of the world.

If they had taken responsibility for their actions instead of their state-sponsored media trying to change the narrative that it originated in Japan, Italy, or the US Military - US leaders may be willing to overlook their actions. Instead, the MO Senator and many others are now outraged at China's attempts to portray themselves as the responsible leader - dolling out pallets of face masks and a handful of Doctors to look like they had control over this from the beginning. Had the US been able to control this virus from a single point, like China, instead of dozens of points that Chinese travelers exported it weeks after the virus was known, our response could have been swift and effective at controlling this virus.

Is America going to war over China's actions? No. Is this another reason for countries to reconsider trade practices, companies to consider their supply chains, and NGO's to consider China's participation - YES. Cheap labor only goes so far.

Those of you trying to roast Trump for this virus are like Monday morning quarterbacks using a playbook provided by the opposition. Claiming the reorganization of the NSC to realign pandemic response is a political move - a creative narrative to try and win points in the November election. Like it or not, the US response has been adequate. Travel bans were put in place when he was called a racist. Encouraging US Citizens to be calm, not panic, and follow medical advice was the responsible position when everyone wanted the President to run around like his hair (what little he has) was on fire. The stay in place orders are a well reasoned, local decision, based on infection rates. My only critique is the CDC and private groups should have made more testing resources available sooner. Was this Trump or was this China, WHO, and career CDC employees not wanting to work more past 5 o'clock on a Friday?

Keep the pressure on China - for all of our us.

10:37 Amazing that the Gallop poll released yesterday said Trump has his highest approval rating of 49%+ and 60% of Americans believe he's handling the response well. Are you sure that you're not watching too much MSNBC? Once you get stuck in that echo chamber it's hard to get some rational perspective on how the world is actually working. Nice try though.

^^Fox News is a powerful source. Don't watch a lick of MSNBC. I look at the stats, Trump's tweets (past and present) and his pressers and if that doesn't convince you this is a dumpster fire.....you're just part of the cult.

FTR, I'm willing to sacrifice the old shriv's on the TKC forum if it means getting this economy and stock market back on track. Sorry Chuck, you're going to be sacrificed for our 401k's and stock portfolios. NOW LET'S GET BACK TO WORK AMERICA!

You are wrong. The Pandemic Response Team was not disbanded. There were duplications in the department and consolidations were made for increased efficiencies and effectiveness. The lie that the team was disbanded is being spread around by liberal news organizations doing everything they can to pin this pandemic on the current administration. If you’re really being honest, China told our government one thing but was hiding what was really going on and they still are. Find someone In the military with decent security clearance and they’ll tell you about the bodies in China.

What happened is that China was hiding the real body counts, jailing those trying to get the truth out, and lying about everything. We, and every other country, went with the information we were supplied from China. And it was crap.

Sorry, true. But don't worry Trumper, Trump said in a press conference when asked specifically about this it's not his fault. People in his administration do stuff all the time. Dovetails nicely with his, I haven't done anything wrong attitude. 10 out of 10 amirite?

Also, for dumb Trumpers who aren't familiar with our dipshit in chief's propensity to tweet stupid shit:
January 24th on Trump Twitter: "China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American people, I want to thank President Xi!" Exclamation point is Trump's, not mine.

It's pretty fucking exhausting with Trumpers. I'm sure after reading this, you'll trot out some other defense because hey, the guy never does anything wrong. It's really beyond me the spell he has on people. Grifters gonna find their marks.

And before you question Snopes 1:46, you need to refute with facts, you dumb fucking Trumper. Not some bullshit opinion piece you pull from Faux News or the Federalist.

So Hawley said: "China has been lying about it and sitting on it for weeks and weeks and weeks and that has cost the world thousands of deaths, it's cost us here in this country."

The exact same statement is better applied to the Trump administration.

Hawley is no better than the other deniers on the virus. What was he doing in January and February? He was drafting subpoenas for the Bidens and bitching about facebook. The dumb cunt can STFU.
