Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed a federal lawsuit against the People’s Republic of China on Tuesday, claiming the Chinese government oversaw a coverup of the coronavirus disease that has led to significant damages for Missouri and for the world.
Schmitt’s lawsuit claims “an appalling campaign of deceit, concealment, misfeasance, and inaction by Chinese authorities unleashed this pandemic.”
The Attorney General cites China’s pervasive censorship of the coronavirus disease, most notably refusing to admit that the virus could be transferred from one human to another when it became obvious.
“In mid-January, on or around January 16, despite knowing the risks of doing so, Wuhan leaders hosted a potluck dinner for 40,000 residents, increasing the potential spread of the virus.” Schmitt accuses China of refusing to enact necessary safety measures to deter the spread of the disease. “Defendants allowed these massive public gatherings and massive exodus from Wuhan despite knowing the risks of COVID-19, including the risk of human-to-human transmission.”
The lawsuit cites the wide-ranging economic damage incurred by Missouri as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, which now has the highest unemployment rates the state has ever seen since the Great Depression. More than 6,000 cases of the virus have been diagnosed in the state, and almost 230 people have died of coronavirus.
Securing compensation from China within the U.S. federal court system will be an uphill battle. Foreign nations have wide-ranging protections as a result of foreign immunity, although some of the entities Schmitt is litigating against are nominally private organizations that are de facto Chinese government controlled.
Missouri Senator Josh Hawley has proposed federal legislation that would strip legal immunity from the authoritarian communist Chinese government, making them liable to civil claims from coronavirus victims in a manner similar to the 2016 Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act.
Biden’s Syria Strikes Killed at Least 22 People – More than Both of Trump’s Strikes on the Country
Biden’s airstrike killed 22 people.
President Joe Biden has surpassed President Trump’s body-count for US involvement in Syria’s bloody and seemingly endless civil war- killing more people in one batch of airstrikes than were killed in both of Trump’s military actions targeting Syrian government forces in the country in 2017 and 2018.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has indicated that 22 pro-Assad militia fighters were killed in the airstrike, which reportedly struck three trucks after they crossed the Iraq-Syria border. The airstrikes were staged in response to missile attacks that killed an international contractor and injured US military service members earlier this month, with the Biden administration pointing to Iranian backing of Shia militias in both Iraq and Syria.
Trump’s first missile strike on Syrian government facilities in response to a chemical weapons incident in 2017. Ranges of causalities range from nine to 16 deaths. President Trump oversaw a far more aggressive military campaign to destroy the ISIS caliphate, while dealing with the Syrian government in a more conservative and measured fashion.
Observers maintain that President Trump’s second missile strike on the Syrian government didn’t even kill anyone, with the Syrian government describing six soldiers and three civilians as having been injured in the series of missile strikes that targeted scientific and alleged chemical munitions facilities.
President Trump was in office for four years and avoided inflicting casualties of the kind Biden has in just over a month- on a questionable intelligence basis. Biden’s action may suggest his administration intends to further pursue aggressive action and regime change in Syria, a long-sought priority of the western globalist establishment.
Someone should ask @PressSec her own question verbatim about Biden’s Syria bombing at tomorrow’s briefing (and while the context of her tweet was Trump’s bombing of Syrian forces, the question still applies): https://t.co/9ebYPywQPB

This military action was by every indication more lethal and serious than anything Trump implemented in Syria or Iraq during his presidency- including the killing of Iranian terrorist leader Qassem Soleimani. The corporate-establishment media has largely glossed over the event, refusing to scrutinize the questionable intelligence behind the consequential airstrikes.
