The Daily Mail reported on a controversial breach on the door of one of the refrigerators that used to hold 1,500 different strains of virus at Wuhan’s Institute of Virology.
One of the strains the refrigerators held was the devastating Wuhan Virus, which has ripped through the world with a calamitous effect.
The conventional wisdom is that the pandemic was brought about due to a catastrophic leak which Beijing has been covering up.
The pictures of this lab were first released by the state-owned China Daily newspaper in 2018. They were published on Twitter last month, before being deleted. One comment said: “I have seen better seals on my refrigerator in my kitchen.”
According to a Mail report, Ministers now believe that the pandemic could have been sparked as a result of a leak.
Last week, the same newspaper revealed that the institute conducted Wuhan virus experiments on bats captured over 1,000 miles away in Yunnan. They were able to do so with a $3.7 million grant from the U.S. government.
The revelations that the Mail put forward soon made their way to the American press. Last week, President Donald Trump was asked about the leak theory. The President responded: “We are doing a very thorough examination of this horrible situation.”
On April 17, 2020, Trump pledged to cut U.S. funding to the Wuhan institute.
In the meantime, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has pressed Beijing to “‘come clean” about the nature of Wuhan virus leak. He stated: “There is still lots to learn.The US government is working diligently to figure it out.”
He also stated that one of the best ways that China could be cooperative in this situation would be to “let the world in and let the world’s scientists know exactly how this came to be, exactly how this virus began to spread.”
No matter how we slice it, China is a bad actor.
There is no reason to get into a belligerent conflict with them.
Nevertheless, America needs to rethink its trade and immigration policies with it.
Maintaining the status quo is not viable for America’s economic and national security.
Former Mexican Defense Minister is Arrested in Los Angeles for Allegedly Protecting a Drug Cartel
More Proof that Mexico is An Institutional Dumpster Fire
Retired Mexican General Salvador Cienfuegos was arrested on October 15, 2020.
According to allegations from U.S. prosecutors, General Cienfuegos received bribes from a powerful Mexican cartel and allowed to smuggle drugs into the United States.
An indictment that was unsealed on October 17, revealed that from December 2015 to February 2017, while he served as Mexico’s Secretary of National Defense, Cienfuegos allegedly worked on behalf of a drug cartel. In working with this drug cartel, Cienfuegos earned the nickname of “El Padrino” (The Godfather) by helping the H-2 Cartel move drugs from Mexico to the U.S.
“The defendant [Cienfuegos] abused that public position to help the H-2 Cartel, an extremely violent Mexican drug trafficking organization, traffic thousands of kilograms of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States,” prosecutors contended in a letter sent to a U.S. District Court judge in New York.
“In exchange for bribe payments,” the letter argued, he allowed the cartel “to operate with impunity in Mexico” while it operated distribution networks in cities such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas and in other states such as Ohio, Minnesota, North Carolina and New York.
U.S. agents took the retired general into custody on October 15 at Los Angeles International Airport. Cienfuegos is expected to be transferred to New York.
Cienfuegos served as defense secretary from 2012 to 2018 under the administration of then-President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“The main problem in Mexico is corruption,” López Obrador declared during a news briefing on October 16 regarding the incident.
In López Obrador’s view, it is “regrettable” that someone in such a high position of government has deep connections to drug cartels.
“This is a process of progressive degradation,” López Obrador continued, “and we are trying now to figure out how deep the corruption goes.”
As of now, Cienfuegos is the most prominent Mexican official to have been arrested on drug trafficking charges. In 2019, U.S. authorities arrested Genaro García Luna, the Secretary of Public Security under the administration of former President Felipe Calderón, for allegedly being involved in drug trafficking.
According to the U.S. indictment, Cienfuegos was working with H-2, an alleged branch of the Beltrán-Leyva criminal cartel. On top of that, prosecutors claims that the retired general received bribes to shield the cartel and its leaders. He then proceeded to inform them beforehand of military actions planned against them and even used troops to attack a rival cartel.
Mexico is clearly on the ropes institutionally. With a current president (AMLO) who wants to take a “hugs not bullets” approach to crime, the country will continue to spiral into chaos as drug cartels become even more powerful. President Trump has been right all along in building a wall to protect America from the potential spillover effects of Mexico’s drug war.
