Every single word that comes out of the mouth of the CCP is a lie.

My opinion is:

They engineered that virus in their Laboratory in Wuhan.

But I still believe in the good of the humans, even if they are from the CCP, therefore I say they didnt release the Virus on purpose. The virus escaped via accident from their laboratory.

Whatever they are telling, whatever report they are showing. I dont believe any single word!

And I am sure 90% of the world agree with me.

And that is "news"? What did anybody expect them to say in their "report"??

None of us knows if the thing was engineered on purpose. But there is no doubt that at the Wuhan institute of Virology they were experimenting with exactly this type of virus and its transmissibilty to humans. Heck, they published papers about it and had job openings outling this type of research on their web page before they were deleted! Not to to mention the suddenly missing researchers.

Personally I think that this was an accident which the CCP first tried to suppress and then turned it into an opportunity.

The only difference between what the CCP and their business partner Donald J. Trump will put in their respective after-action reports is the CCP's will be printed while Trump's will be written (at the fifth grade level) in Black Sharpie...

They'll have an equal number of lies...

We definitely should have listened to the Taiwanese earlier that what we did.

The Taiwanese had the good sense to shut the borders to their country (Yes Taiwan is a country), earlier than anyone else, and had little damage as a result.

Another BIG lie by the Chinese authorities. Do they really think the world would believe them? The WHO ( a complicit ) finally claimed that there were many delays in obtaining data after 5 months. A joke! Mr Tedros flew to China to praise the way they handled the pandemic. Look at the figures today. Thousands have died and millions infected. Disgraceful!

Lies, lies and more lies. The CCP is only interested in themselves, not even in their own people. No more trust in them and if at all possible, economic and social distancing.

I also prescribe to the theory that the Wuhan P4 lab was the source, and it was accidentally released. The Chinese of that area do not eat bats and none were sold at the wet market which the CCP blamed. But virus' from bats were kept at the lab. I was one of the first to post this but kept getting deleted as some assumed it was merely a wacko conspiracy theory.

This "report" is total CCP hogwash. The timeline shows that China did not take action and tried to first suppress information about it. And that China influenced the WHO is also obvious. China should reimburse the entire world for the damage brought about by their initial actions.

The intent of the report is to help the CCP save face and avoid responsibility for releasing the virus.

Personally I think that this was an accident which the CCP first tried to suppress and then turned it into an opportunity.

An opportunity, yes.

The report lauded China's success in reducing the daily increase in new cases to single digits within about two months and the “decisive victory ...

And a "decisive victory" over the enemies of the CCP.

At minimal damage to China, the virus succeeded in disrupting world industries, wrecking economies, creating pandemic and even immobilized (U.S. Navy) military personnel. They also timed the release during a U.S. election year, causing a downturn in the economy and shutdown thus assuring an incumbent president wouldn't be re-elected.

Don't think the CCP, DPRK and other anti-U.S. organizations didn't noticed the effect of the virus. They realized they have a new weapon on hand. A weapon where there is no effective defense against. The COVID-19 virus is a dry run of what germ warfare can be.

Do you believe that the Virus was released by China on purpose?

The CCP closed travel from Wuhan domestically, while keeping international flights out of Wuhan open, and told the WHO (who dutifully repeated it) there was no evidence of human transmission.

Make of that what you will.

The problem is that in despotic totalitarian dictatorship there is nobody who can say "hey CCP wait a second this is a complete lie" That would mean jail in best case, worst case nobody will ever see this person again. I always feel disgusted when I think about the bases of such a criminal regime. Honestly I believe Chinese people deserve better life.

Do you really need to drag your hatred of Trump into every post on JT? We get it. You don't like him.

This article has nothing to do with Trump and everything to do with the CCP doing what they do best and often - lying.

Does it bother you when I point out your Sainted Leaders foibles? Good, I'll keep doing it...

Because it's all true - that's why it bothers Trump supporters so much...

so in other words, he is going to continue to talk about neckties instead of the China COVID response like every other single person here.

Neckties, shirts, keychains - all the items your Sainted Leader gets made in Chinese sweatshop factories, giving money to his business partners in the CCP, and cheating US workers out of jobs...

See? I can tell the future. just cant resist.

Now, actually talk about the China COVID response?

China? Trump's business partners? Sure, be glad to talk about them....

But if you want an expert's opinion, ask Trump - he's been friends and business associates with them for years...

And he thinks they were "strong" when they murdered the Tienanmen Square protesters...

What do you mean "if it is really true"? The travel policy adopted by the CCP (and their statements) are not not disputed, it is all on record. I was only stating something that is not secret and that you can check yourself easily.

And a lot of the things the CCP does are "very hard stuff". Think about the treatment of the Tibetans, the Uigurs, and the Falun Gong members for example.

In this particular case, it is pretty simple to predict the future. I have been thinking of writing them myself, but I never seem to make it in time..... every time I log on, you-know-who has been there already.

Two guys who claim to be able to predict the future...OK....

There's a name for those kind of folks - they're called con-artists....

Like the guy that ran the sham university...

You have no evidence.

And you have no evidence that COVD19 originated in the wet market.

I keep telling everyone that "trump" is China's "Spirit Animal". If you want to predict what China will do next then think what trump would. The same is true when the roles are reversed.

Deny everything, project or blame everyone else, and lie, lie, lie until they can distract the people or everyone forgets.

It is called Occams Razor. The wet marked fails that.

By the way, the latest line from the CCP is that there are no wet markets in China....

Occam’s razor is a theory by which one can make a guess as to something.

But here we have an extremist who clearly thinks it equates to proof.

And talks as if that makes sense.

So what? I don't need any evidence one way or another, because I have made no claim.

You have.

You claim that you "prescribe to the theory that the Wuhan P4 lab was the source,"

Where is your evidence for that claim? Where is your evidence that it was released accidently?

Oh, right, you have none. 'Cause there is none. It's speculation. Nothing more. But not mere idle speculation. No. Dangerous speculation. Considering the implications of people believing it to be true.

Which makes you a conspiracy theorist here.

And saying, "Ok, then, smarty pants. How do you explain it, huh?"

I don't. I don't need to explain anything. You make a claim. You back it up.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

There is enough circumstantial evidence presented here that I am open once more to the possibility of an accidental release from one of the two Wuhan labs. Seriously considered, not a conspiracy theory.

(Long article warning.)
