The Chinese communist regime is owning up to their mistreatment of the 34-year-old ophthalmologist Li Wenliang, a COVID-19 coronavirus whistleblower who would go on to lose his life because of the illness.
Wenliang was the man who attempted to alert Chinese officials and the greater public about the spread of the coronavirus, but was brutally suppressed and silenced by the communist regime. If they had listened to Wenliang and taken measures immediately in December when he discovered the virus, an untold number of people could have avoided the coronavirus infection.
Investigators in Beijing have determined that Wuhan authorities behaved “inadequately” and failed to follow “proper law enforcement procedure” when they reprimanded Wenliang and accused him of “spreading rumors” in January when people were already dying because of the pandemic.
While this is a good first step toward accountability, the Chinese have much more to account for because of the myriad ways they mishandled their response to the virus.
They pulled the wool over the eyes of the globalist World Health Organization (WHO), an internationalist body tasked by the United Nations with handling worldwide pandemics.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) has led the push in Washington D.C. to make sure China is held accountable for their despicable behavior regarding the coronavirus that has jeopardized the health of every individual on the planet.
China claimed—for almost two months—that coronavirus had originated in a Wuhan seafood market. That is not the case. @TheLancet published a study demonstrating that of the original 40 cases, 14 of them had no contact with the seafood market, including Patient Zero. pic.twitter.com/PdgqgHjkGy

“When Chinese Internet users flooded social media with indignation following Dr. Li’s death, their cries were scrubbed from the Internet by the Communist Party’s army of censors. When a Chinese human-rights activist called for Chairman Xi to step down, he was detained and then “disappeared.” When Wall Street Journal columnist Walter Russell Mead wrote a bracing article about the Chinese Communist Party’s failure to contain the coronavirus, the Communist Party kicked three of the paper’s reporters out of the country,” Cotton wrote about the Chinese menace.
“When the number of reported infections spiked upward due to an improvement in data reporting, the Party purged local officials who were likely responsible. And after Chinese scientists gave the world a head-start in developing a vaccine by publishing the disease’s genome online, what happened? Were they given awards? Were they celebrated? No, their lab was shut down the very next day. Those scientists deserved awards, they deserved a medal; instead, they were given a professional death sentence,” he added.
One Republican lawmaker has even demanded that China pay reparations to the U.S. because of the havoc their coronavirus has wreaked on the American economy:
Indiana Congressman Jim Banks said on Monday, March 16, 2020 that the United States should start making China to “pay the burden and the cost incurred” by the U.S. thanks to the Wuhan virus.
The Indiana elected official made the statement during an appearance on Monday’s Tucker Carlson Tonight.
“We need to start by forcing China to pay the burden and the cost incurred on the United States of America due to the coronavirus. I think there are many ways that we can do that,” Banks stated…
“So by releasing the debt, the U.S. debt held by the Chinese, we could fund that,” Carlson said, asking Banks if he believes the Trump administration will follow through with this plan.
“I hope so,” Banks commented, congratulating the “enormous” strength Trump showed on trade deals.
“I have no doubt that President Trump will do everything that he can to hold China accountable for what they’ve caused on Americans today,” he stated…
“By refusing to let CDC come to China and study the new virus, by lying to their citizens and saying the virus wasn’t transmitted by person to person contact when they knew the opposite was true, National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien has said this cost the world two months in preparation time for this virus,” Banks declared in an exclusive statement to Breitbart News.
“China needs to pay up, and Congress will be working with members of the Trump administration to learn the best way to hold them accountable,” he continued.
This entire situation has proven the need for the “America First” mindset. China has demonstrated on the grand stage that they cannot be trusted to protect the safety of the world as a global superpower.
Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts
The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.
The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.
In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”
Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”
The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:
After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.
Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.
Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
