Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is leading the fight against China and introducing legislation that would allow Americans to sue the Chinese in court if they were stricken with COVID-19.
Blackburn, who is now serving on President Trump’s advisory group to reopen the economy, is introducing the Stop COVID Act to make China pay mightily “for the devastating harm the deadly virus has caused to the economy and human life.”
She has already found other lawmakers who will back up her efforts to punish the red menace for their reprehensible behavior in causing the pandemic. The bill would build upon the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act in order to remove “sovereign immunity for states that spread biological agents” if enacted.
“The Chinese government must be held accountable for the pain it’s inflicted across the United States,” said Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ), who is a co-sponsor of the bill, in a press release.
“Our legislation to allow Americans to file lawsuits against the Chinese Communist Party for its role in perpetuating the global spread of the coronavirus will give the U.S. a piece of justice,” she added.
“China’s Communist Party must face consequences for its role in the origin and spread of the coronavirus,” Blackburn said.
“The costs are devastating: trillions of dollars in economic damage, more than 22 million American jobs lost, and over 150,000 deaths worldwide and counting. Business owners and families who have lost loved ones deserve justice. Under this legislation, Americans will have the opportunity to take China to court in the U.S. and demand accountability for their lies and deceit,” she added.
Rep. Lance Gooden (R-TX) is championing the cause in the House of Representatives and introducing a similar measure in that chamber.
“Right now, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act is a shield for the Chinese Communist Party to hide behind. We need to change that,” Gooden said. “The leadership of Senators Blackburn and McSally will be invaluable in our effort to do just that.”
Columnist Josh Rogin wrote an op/ed for the Washington Post on Tuesday in which he talked about the concerns with the Wuhan research facility and how American officials had warned of the lab prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Two years before the novel coronavirus pandemic upended the world, U.S. Embassy officials visited a Chinese research facility in the city of Wuhan several times and sent two official warnings back to Washington about inadequate safety at the lab, which was conducting risky studies on coronaviruses from bats,” Rogin wrote.
U.S. officials who inspected the Wuhan research facility were highly alarmed at the dangerous level of incompetence that they saw from the Chinese scientists. They made their objections in Sensitive But Unclassified diplomatic cables sent back to Washington D.C.
“During interactions with scientists at the WIV laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory,” the cable from Jan. 19, 2018 states…
Rogin referenced expert Xiao Qiang, a research scientist at the School of Information at the University of California at Berkeley, who admits that there is a strong possibility that the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab.
“The cable tells us that there have long been concerns about the possibility of the threat to public health that came from this lab’s research, if it was not being adequately conducted and protected,” Xiao said.
Rogin pointed out that the official story from China about the virus coming from a wet market in Wuhan does not hold up under scrutiny.
“Research by Chinese experts published in the Lancet in January showed the first known patient, identified on Dec. 1, had no connection to the market, nor did more than one-third of the cases in the first large cluster. Also, the market didn’t sell bats,” he explained.
“The Chinese government, meanwhile, has put a total lock down on information related to the virus origins. Beijing has yet to provide U.S. experts with samples of the novel coronavirus collected from the earliest cases,” he added.
After years of Russia being hyped by the fake news as a threat to U.S. security, it has become obvious that China is the real danger. Blackburn’s legislation would be a first step toward cutting their economic power down to size.
Sen. Josh Hawley Folds? Blames Trump for ‘Inflammatory, Irresponsible, Wrong’ Comments
Hawley is no leader.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) has been criticized for leading the GOP’s electoral college objection amidst widespread allegations of voter fraud, and he has responded by throwing former President Donald Trump under the bus.
Hawley issued a statement to oppose the impeachment of Trump following the conclusion of his presidency, which is unprecedented and unlawful, in which he threw Trump under the bus and essentially blamed him for the violence in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
HAWLEY: "I think ex-president's rhetoric on the day was inflammatory. I think it was irresponsible. I think it was wrong. But I think that this impeachment effort is, I mean, I think it's blatantly unconstitutional. It's a really really, really dangerous precedent."

In the aftermath of the violence, many left-wing voices accused Hawley of sedition and treason for asking for an investigation into a laundry list of irregularities that have been widely ignored by authorities.
There have even been calls by Democrats to revoke the will of the people by ejecting Hawley from office in order to punish him for drawing attention to voter fraud, as Big League Politics has reported:
Conventional wisdom can often be misleading and at times dangerous if we believe in it too strongly.
Take for example West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin. He is constantly marketed as the Democrats’ most moderate Senator. There is a grain of truth to this. Manchin has publicly stated that he opposes ending the filibuster and has also poured cold water on $2,000 stimulus checks. But that’s where the moderation ends.
Manchin is now saying that the Senate should entertain the idea of expelling Senators Josh Hawley (R-MO) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) by using the 14th Amendment over their recent decision to challenge the Electoral College results.
On PBS’s Firing Line, Manchin said the Senate should look into the option after right-wing activists stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Manchin is of the opinion that President Donald Trump and Senators like Hawley and Cruz “incited” these demonstrators.
“That should be a consideration,” Manchin stated. “He understands that. Ted’s a very bright individual, and I get along fine with Ted, but what he did was totally outside of the realm of our responsibilities or our privileges.”
According to the 14th Amendment, no elected official “shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.”
Hyped up leftist pundits believe that the 14th amendment is applicable to Cruz and Hawley due to how they allegedly “incited” the riot by talking about electoral fraud and pointing out electoral irregularities.
Hawley finally caved under the pressure, and he has shown he is not the man to take the reigns to lead the America First movement after Trump.
