I said a few days ago that China’s attempt to swoop in and save the day for other countries infected with the Wuhan virus is like an arsonist who runs into the building he set on fire to make himself look like the hero. It seems that this analogy may be even more descriptive than I thought.

Obviously, we can’t trust numbers coming out of China. On April 7, NBC NEWS tweeted that in a 24-hour period, the U.S. reported 1,264 deaths from coronavirus while China reported “not a single new coronavirus death.” Technically, that’s correct: China REPORTED not a single new death. But why is NBC willingly serving as China’s propaganda microphone? That’s not to pick on NBC; they’re not the only ones doing this.

Steven W. Mosher, author of the extremely timely book “BULLY OF ASIA: Why China’s Dream Is The New Threat To World Order,” appeared Tuesday on Laura Ingraham’s show to talk about this. He opened by saying what we already know: that from the beginning, China has lied outrageously. “They don’t just fudge the numbers,” he said; “they make them up out of whole cloth.”

Mosher thinks at least 50,000 have died in Wuhan since the beginning of the outbreak. To get that number, he noted that the Wuhan crematoria that were going full-on for 60 days, and they process about 1,000 bodies per day. After that, they began handing out funeral urns to grieving relatives, 500 of them a day, from 7 crematoria, times 14 days. Do the math.

He reminds us that this is the same Communist Party that told us no one died in Tienanmen Square when we later found out that around 10,000 lost their lives. It’s the same Communist Party that said no one died after The Great Leap Forward famine, when it turned out that 42.5 million perished. I’d say their numbers were a little off.

"So, I don’t know why anyone would take numbers out of China seriously,” he said. “I mean, why would anyone try to make China look good in this way –- it couldn’t just be just to make America look bad.”

Or...could it?

According to a March 26 story in PROPUBLICA, China has been using thousands of fake Twitter accounts to coordinate a disinformation campaign “about the coronavirus outbreak, the Hong Kong protests and other topics of state interest.” While Democrats were crying “Russia Russia Russia,” it appears China was gearing up for some serious “meddling” of its own. They’ve spent $10 billion on their campaign; this is much more massive than anything the Russians, with their few Twitter accounts, did. Most media ignored this story.

When you have time, take a look at it –- pretty scary.

And if you saw Monday’s press briefing with President Trump, you saw a young woman representing Phoenix TV of Hong Kong, which Trump called out as being owned by the Chinese (good for you, Mr. President!). Obviously, the Chinese media are here, putting together their own narratives for their own propaganda pieces. The Chinese embassies and media outlets are touting their success in controlling the virus, when they did nothing of the sort. Thousands of Chinese died, and the virus spread around the world.

The latest thing China is lying about is the reliability of coronavirus tests they’ve sent around the world. If anything needs to be accurate, it’s a test for this virus, but according to Mosher, the tests are “junk” that will “kill people.” The Department of Health had said that coronavirus test kits sent by China were only 40 percent accurate, but apparently Beijing bullied them into recanting that statement. On April 1, Mosher said that China is providing Europe with defective tests, masks that leak and protective gear that doesn’t protect. Some of the supplies have actually been sent back. (It occurs to me that if the workers in the Wuhan biolab weren’t protected by their gear, that alone doesn’t say much for the label “Made In China.”)

Mosher calls the World Health Organization “the Chinese Health Organization” and rightly criticizes them for not holding up Taiwan as an example for how to handle the pandemic. Taiwan was the first country to close its borders to Wuhan and as a result of this quick action had very few infections and deaths. But Taiwan isn’t even recognized as a country by China, so W.H.O. was intimidated into not recognizing their efforts. President Trump said Tuesday that he’s going to be looking into the World Health Organization, noting that the U.S. is their major source of funds. I have a feeling their funding from America may be drying up soon.

The article at the link includes more details as well as a Mosher’s historical perspective on China’s totalitarianism. Highly recommended…

As for our own media lying about coronavirus, what makes me the maddest right now is their insistence that Trump is wrong about the hydroxychloroquine/azithromycin/zinc drug therapy, when all signs point to a success here.

Even Dr. Anthony Fauci raises my blood pressure (an especially bad thing right now) when he says we may not ever get back to normal. For him, a vaccine is the Holy Grail, and until we find that, there are no long-term studies to give him confidence in any treatment. Never mind that an approved vaccine is likely 12-18 months away. I’m not accusing Dr. Fauci of bad intentions, just of thinking like a single-minded researcher and perhaps not seeing the big picture.

Zeke Emanuel, brother of Rahm “NEVER LET A SERIOUS CRISIS GO TO WASTE” Emanuel, said on MSNBC Monday night that America will probably be shut down for at least 18 months. Amplifying Dr. Fauci, he said, “We will not be able to return to normalcy...I know that’s dreadful news to hear...Conferences, concerts, sporting events, religious services, dinner at a restaurant, none of that will resume until we find a vaccine, a treatment or a cure.” What a lovely “serious crisis” this would create for leftists.

The vaccine won't come till later, but we may be on the verge of a treatment or cure, possibly a preventative, plus the very important antibody test. New studies are encouraging, but the mainstream media aren’t about to let Trump have a win on this, even if it means the end of the American economy as we know it, and that’s just plain evil. They seem to be actively rooting for him to be wrong. Trump’s optimism about hydroxychloroquine has been called “false hope,” “lies,” and “fake science.” Some have even speculated that Trump is touting this drug because he has a financial interest in it.

Mainstream media have definitely noticed the conservative critics of naysayers such as Dr. Fauci. Here’s what THE GUARDIAN had to say about us. Not super-slanted until the last several paragraphs…

This issue needs to be about health, not politics. I’ll leave you with a powerful “anecdote” about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine from Dr. Marc Siegel. Anecdotal evidence has its place. And so does any treatment that’s known to be safe and that might very well do some good.

    They are good comments concerning the virus at Wuhan, China and the Communist China cover-up and hiding information. The Communist China government cannot be trusted. They and the U.S. do not work together that well. The cost and bill should be sent to China, and charges of crimes against humanity from court trials.

    Please watch the April 9 video by Anomoly. It has a lot of information. This guy is a journalist that is fair and looks things up. I hope you will give him a fair shake even though he has long hair and didn't vote for President Trimp.

    I drive Lyft and a few months ago I had four Chinese businessmen in my vehicle. I don't know why, but I started talking politics. something I don't ordinarily do since I drive so many different sorts with a multitude of conflicting ideals. They listened and ask a few questions. These men seem to be fascinated in what I had to say and looked at each other with discerning looks occasionally speaking in chinese to one another. Finally one asked me if I thought Trump would be re-elected. My reply, "Most definitely!" I don't know why I said that because sometimes I worry he won't be. With that they all got a very sad expression on their face and fell silent for quite a while. Trump put a big dent in their monopoly and they hate him. For the USA sake I am so pleased Trump's actions couple with this awful virus will bring a lot of manufacturing back to this country.

    Mike, thanks reinforcing my message on Laura Ingraham's show last night that the CCP can never be trusted. The default position of the Chinese Communists is to lie and deceive, even when they don't have to. That's because their 'truth' is a tissue of lies about God (He doesn't exist), Man (just a soulless animal), and the State (the Socialist Second Coming that will save us all). Our Truth is a person, Jesus Christ, whose birth, death and resurrection separates Christian fact from Communist fictions. Happy Easter! Steve Mosher

    I have read and listen to reports that are some states told there cities to reporte C-19 and the flu as one reporte Coronvirus, if this is so how can we have correct records and treatment, also that the so called common flu has killed more people. It is a shame you don't know who to believe ( I am sorry I believe in GOD and the SON)on reporting and now using this as a politcal tool,shame on us, how far we have down graded the human race. thank you for letting me spout

    Our President Trump is correct on the issue of US dependence on nations that are not really our friends or don't have our best interests in mind. We should not depend on China for our pharmaceuticals and other items. Steven Mnuchin suggested that US should reopen the factories in Puerto Rico to meet the need (see article: https://www.forbes.com/sites/theapothecary/2020/03/16/puerto-rico-can-help-the-u-s-end-its-dependence-on-chinese-pharmaceutical-ingredients/#5c37b99b2a40 ). These factories left Puerto Rico after the Section 936 ended the US companies incentive to have factories in Puerto Rico. The factories went to China and India. There are also poorer states that could benefit with this arrangement. We should build in the US!

    I am responding to someone's comment about reading comments, then it gets to NEXT, then goes back to the beginning of the newsletter and not able to access the rest or the comments. It has been this way for at least a month if not longer. It is frustrating, as I really do look forward to reading all the comments of readers.

    Several things the left fear the most. 1) The crisis will be over and people WILL return to work, shopping, eating out, going to concerts, etc. 2) The economy and employment will recover--and even worse for them, it could recover even more than ever.

    Thank goodness we don't have socialized medicine. While the politicians and msm and bill gates and the like scream about hydroxichloroquine there are doctors who are prescribing it and with the grudging okay--not approval, but okay of some governors who threatened the license doctors and pharmacists. Of course, there were those who didn't wait for the okay. If we were under socialized medicine--they would not be able to treat their patients until some entity with a book of algorithms allowed them. A poster had written he would not respect nor go to any doctor who would prescribe a medication that was made for a different condition. Maybe he should research meds he takes, as there are a number of medications intended for one condition that have been found to be helpful in other instances and doctors prescribe them.

    From reading various articles (don't know about the veracity of the information) bill gates seems to be promoting things to curtail/rid? the spread of the virus--nanny state things that would continue to push the envelope toward socialism. He touts a vaccine that, I'm pretty sure he didn't develop, but likely paid for the development. But, he also pushes toward everyone being microchipped and I'd be afraid to take his vaccine cuz, with today's technology, who knows whether or not it would include some method of tracking us heathens.

    Let's not forget that vaccines are not required to have a double blind study to show effectiveness and that the pharmaceutical industry is not responsible, unlike EVERY other drug.

    I've compared numbers from the western half of the USA. It looks like covid19 has already been here in December & January. The number are low now because we are all immune here. We had it before it got a name and became a celebrity. There are a lot of rumblings about why are we still in lockdown. We are losing patience with imposed panic. The news all seems to be New York centric. The dumpster fire that is New York public health is NOT what is happening across the rest of the country. Even California is not having an epidemic. Because we already had it four months ago.

    I’m with getting some of our workers back to work. Send only the strong and virus free.
    Yes China is to blame, and I think it was intentional. They were out to ruin us and they came close.
    Americans have to start thinking about getting the economy back up for the virus free Americans. Keep the mask and gloves and temperature taking in place, but let the healthy go back to work.
    Either that or we learn to speak Chinese and I refuse to do that.

    The W.H.O. is just another United Nations running under the Radar of our Watchdog Media. The Covid-19 is number 3 or 4 in the line of 'Viruses' to be presented to the World and the worst part of my personality Smells something akin to the shrimp under the seat on a 100 degree day Three of being closed up. The Stink NEVER goes away. The layer under the Swamp is how the media is ignoring the real story. Can anyone explain the relationship between Dr. Fauci and the head of WHO and Bill Gates is interesting and needs investigating. The conspiracy theories abound and I cannot bring my head around China purposely releasing a Virus that has the potential to bring the world to 1929 on Steroids? Whats the Advantage? Can anyone explain how the 'Reporting' sites can ignore Singapore statistics and then report Hong Kong as SAR's cases. Seems Trumps Crack team is buying into the crisis will end in 18-24 Months? WHEN a VACCINE or CURE is TESTED and Proven? In 24 months of economic stagnation America will look and feel like Yemen, complete with armed banditos.

    Sad when I see a media that will not give up like The View who for over 3 years daily tear down the President. Not even worse per he is to blame for those dying now , he did not do enough. Then one host who said his adm is corrupt. No end and we need to come together now . The rest the Russian scam we could get by , and then the try to Impeach is a fake set up. This is real a killing virus let go by a group of Chinese leaders WHY ? Affected the whole world. WE do not need Russians or the Chinese to tear us down when we have the nasty liberal Demos. Let the games begin.
