The scary thing is that these people actually won an election.

5 ( +12 / -7 )

I read just yesterday via a Chinese source, that the numbers of infected by up to 6 different viruses, could be well over 1 million....or even more. But of course the wonderful CCP will keep it a secret.

11 ( +15 / -4 )

Unfortunately a ban on Chinese travellers won't happen, due to Covid weariness and the significant amount of people who would no doubt claim this outbreak is also "nothing to worry about" - the "It's just a common cold!" mob.

But there should be a ban until China is transparent about things - and we know what is going on.

well who cares?

this will make no difference whatsoever.

-17 ( +2 / -19 )

well who cares?

this will make no difference whatsoever.

We know full well you are a CCP apologist.

plus he needs COVID again to go back to the basement and get his illegal votes by mail running again.

For all the talk about others not being to deal with reality, it seems some people have a difficult time accepting Trump lost. The irony.

"The relevant claims are purely ill-intentioned fabrications. China firmly opposes them."

Rather than just firmly opposing them, why doesn't China realize that it's policy of secrecy and uncooperation with the international community is what creates such claims. An effort to protect the U.S. from another potential pandemic is far from "ill-intentioned". And we don't know of they are "fabrications" or not.

The entire world is stll waiting for China to allow an international determination of the origin and causes of Covid19 which has taken 6.98 million lives.

Maybe these 5 Repubs will be telling people to mask up and get vaccinated too?

Mask up?? Republicans would never do that.

-15 ( +3 / -18 )

"Sen. McConnell Says Americans Must Have 'No Stigma' In Wearing Face Masks"

Like I said, No one listens to the establishment, even Mitch gets laughed at on that one.

And why'd you leave out "vaccine"?

Because most people won’t take it.

As in "it's safe and it works, and frankly all my supporters should take it"

If you’re referring to the former president, he can take and eat whatever he wants, doesn’t mean I have agree, copy or like the same thing he does.

-12 ( +3 / -15 )

Senate Intelligence Committee

Isn't that a supposedly a classic contradiction of terms?

4 ( +6 / -2 )

Establishment? Where did you say that?

Always

Even if Trump tells them it's safe and it works? They think he's lying?

I don’t care, lying not lying, his choice and my choice is, not putting the juice in my body doesn’t me hate or dislike the guy, I just don’t trust the stuff.

He didn’t create it, he’s not trying to kill anyone

Of course not, now ask the people at the CDC that came out with this junk.

-13 ( +3 / -16 )

I don't think a ban is in order but mandatory health checks before leaving China would be good.

7 ( +8 / -1 )

Travel ban from China, yet the borders are wide open. It will never happen.

-3 ( +4 / -7 )

Trump would act on this immediately.

Just like he did with Covid, right?:)

7 ( +11 / -4 )

Clown shoes. They should announce this after all 5 exit an extremely small car, with big red noses, preferably honking said noses.

What stupid people these Republicans are. They cared not a jot for their citizens during the pandemic. They cared only for their stupid partisan politics and doing the opposite of what Democrats were proposing.

Their leader even suggested ingesting bleach and injecting sunlight as a remedy. And they want him to have another chance at being an abject failure despite him being a proven fraudster, sex offender and vendor for classified information.

2 ( +6 / -4 )

Another chapter of “politics as usual” … the senators involved are preaching to the choir (The former Insurrectionist-in-Chief).

Read an article that this recent outbreak in China was spreading in schools with many children infected

What stupid people these days Republicans are. They cared not a jot for their citizens during the pandemic.

Like Newsom and Cuomo?

They cared only for their stupid partisan politics and doing the opposite of what Democrats were proposing.

Because they had a different medical point of view which in the end vindicated them.

Their leader even suggested ingesting bleach and injecting sunlight as a remedy.

No, he didn’t. This is the EXACT quote he said:

“I see the disinfectant, where it knocks it [the virus] out in a minute. … Is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?” he said. “Because you see it gets in the lungs and it does a tremendous number on the lungs. So it would be interesting to check that.”

And they want him to have another chance at being an abject failure

Which he wasn’t. By the way, this current administration had more covid deaths on their watch.

despite him being a proven fraudster, sex offender and vendor for classified information

Yeah, yeah, let liberals focus on that and we’ll focus on the issues that Americans by large care about like Crime, the border, inflation, wars…

The left can’t say Jack about the right when it comes to the pandemic when their own record was less than prestige.

More bad stuff coming out of China.

You tell 'em Bobby.

The US learned this the first time around. Other countries, did the same.

Why not do it again?

For political reasons? Talk about a clown show.

Taiwan has a travel ban. If anyone knows the mainland better, I'd be surprised. The CCP is spraying disinfectants everywhere again with the white+blue people in the streets. They are closing schools and hospitals are beyond capacity, filled with children.

Fool me once, shame on you (China). Fool me twice, shame on me (the rest of the world).

To be clear, doctors know the bacteria causing the infections, so this isn't COVID or something unknown. China does use anti-bacterial medicines far too much and strains that are resistant to all known treatments will get a foothold there before spreading worldwide. It isn't an "if" question. It is a "when" question.
