During what passed for a debate last week, Joe Biden tried to make President Trump personally responsible for the 200,000 (and counting) US deaths from the Kung Flu. Trump in his usual disorganized, unprepared way blurted out that 307,000 veterans died during the Biden/Obama administration.
As one of us has pointed out elsewhere what a prepared Trump would have done is compare and put into context both numbers. For example, he could have responded, "the tragic COVID–19 victims were at least getting the best treatment possible inside the hospital. During the Biden/Obama administration 307,000 veterans died waiting for treatment in VA hospitals that they never were allowed to enter."
That, however, is intermural fighting. What we should not ever lose sight of is where the real blame for the "Wufluenza" lies and that blame belongs solely to China.
An NBC News report says, "More than 1 million people have died from Covid-19 since the coronavirus was first identified late last year in China, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University."
Currently the discredited World Health Organization (WHO) is predicting "the worldwide death toll could double to 2 million before a successful vaccine is widely used."
The fact is those numbers are as compromised as the integrity of the director of the WHO.
Biden and the rest of the Great Pandemic Panic practitioners claim the United States, "With more than 200,000 deaths, U.S. continues to lead the global death toll, followed by Brazil at 142,000 and India at 95,500."
The numbers are only as good as the data the numbers are based upon, or as IBM used to say: "Garbage in, garbage out."
China, where the virus originated and the nation that unleashed the pandemic globally claims a total of 4,634 deaths in a nation of 1.4 billion with cases totaling only 85,000.
That's fewer deaths than the state of Arizona, with a population of 7.3 million, alone experienced and fewer cases than Arkansas with a population of 3 million had.
If you believe those numbers, we’ve got a Green New Deal we’d like to sell you.
China has lied about everything connected with the coronavirus. From where it originated, how contagious it was and how much damage it did internally to China.
Yet members of our government and the opposition media embrace obviously false China official figures to make the U.S. and its president look bad.
It’s time to put the responsibility on the nation that has caused the calamity: China, as run by the Chinese Communist Party (CPP).
The refusal of so many in our country to do that, joined by thousands in positions of power globally, tells you all you need to know about their moral fiber and integrity.
