Trump Admin Continues Attack on China, Insists COVID-19 Developed in Wuhan Lab

In Washington, D.C., President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo are continuing to criticize China’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak, claiming the virus originated in a Chinese lab. On Sunday, Pompeo appeared on ABC’s “This Week.”

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo: “There’s enormous evidence that that’s where this began. We’ve said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outside, but I think the whole world can see now. Remember, China has a history of infecting the world, and they have a history of running substandard laboratories.”

The World Health Organization and the U.S. intelligence community have refuted this theory, saying the coronavirus was not man-made and originated from animal-to-human transmission. A recent Department of Homeland Security report also blames the Chinese government for intentionally concealing the severity of the coronavirus while stockpiling imported supplies and reducing its exports.

US Trade War With China Takes A Coronaviral Turn

https://www.counterpunch.org/2020/05/05/u-s-trade-war-against-china-take...

"The Trump administration has expanded its trade war against China to include the COVID-19 pandemic. With more than 1 million already infected in the United States and about 60,000 dead, Trump's assertion in February and March that the coronavirus is just 'like a flu' and will disappear, have now been replaced by 'China did it,' even talking about making China pay reparations.

A part of this is Trump's dire need to scapegoat someone or some country for the United States' total incompetence in handling the COVID-19 epidemic. But that is not all. The anti-China campaign fits into the larger war that the United States was already waging against China. The US hegemony as the sole superpower is being challenged - economically by China with its manufacturing strength, and strategically by Russia, with its reemergence as a global player. In US domestic politics and its presidential election cycle, Russia is rapidly being replaced by China as the new arch-villain.

As always happens, the US mainstream media loyally follows suit. Trump's China virus narrative is also tapping into the deep reservoir of xenophobia and racism, that is why it is so potent. Let us look at the facts as we know them. The timeline of how the virus epidemic unfolded in Wuhan, and what we know about it are given below..."

Canada, Allies Express Concern Over Exclusion of Taiwan from WHO: Letter

https://globalnews.ca/news/6954519/world-health-organization-taiwan-coro...

Canada, the United States and six major allies have told the WHO that its ongoing exclusion of Taiwan has created a serious public health concern during the COVID-19 crisis. That message was delivered in a letter, a draft of which has been viewed by the Canadian Press, that tells WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyas to allow Taiwan to be given observer status at a major meeting of the organization on Monday.

The message in the letter to the WHO echoed a new report released this past week by the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission, an agency of Congress that advises on the national security implications of trade with China...The spokesman for China's foreign ministry once again registered Beijing's strong objections on Friday to including Taiwan at the WHO, calling it an attempt to 'seek independence under the pretext of the pandemic with the help of some Western countries..."

"Canadian politicians, ex-diplomats and academics are playing a lead role in an international campaign to blame China for the global coronavirus pandemic. This reactionary initiative has a two-fold purpose: to divert public attention away from Western capitalist governments' disastrous response to the pandemic, which has manifestly prioritized investor profits over human lives, and to further expand Canadian imperialism's military-strategic partnership with Washington in preparation for international great-power conflict, including war with China. This is underscored by a conveniently timed interview with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that also appeared this week in the hard-right Toronto Sun. Pompeo decried China's handling of the of the coronavirus before getting down to what was his real concern.

He urged Canada to follow Trump's 'America First' lead and reduce its reliance on supply chains dependent on Chinese-based production. He then turned to the issue of Chinese tech giant Huawei's involvment in Canada's 5G network. 'We think that installing Huawei equipment in a country's telecom infrastructure presents an enormous national security risk, he declared. 'This is an entity controlled by the Ontario government.' Pompeo went on to warn that the US would only transfer intelligence to allies they know are 'secure', an implicit repetition of the threat to downgrade US-Canada intelligence sharing if Canada does not exclude Huawei from Canada's 5G network..."

Bill 1 would have al of those democracy protestors in Hong Kong subject to an immediate $10,000 fine and six months in prison for a second offense.

The Qiao Collective and Left Diasporic Chinese Nationalism

quote:

One of these responses is to embrace a diasporic Chinese nationalism that sees itself in primarily leftist terms. For example, the rise of the Qiao Collective has been one of the inadvertent effects of the Hong Kong protests over the past year. Though it began as a personal Twitter account, Qiao seems to have been formed in reaction to the Lausan Collective—which formed last year with the aim of providing decolonial leftist perspectives on Hong Kong after the start of the Anti-ELAB protests—and the international Left’s increased interest in events in Hong Kong. Qiao likely formed because it viewed Lausan as a threat that could attract support from the international Left in solidarity with the self-determination struggle in Hong Kong.

quote:

Idealization of the People’s Republic of China

FOR QIAO the PRC is and has always been a communist country. Qiao rejects the view that China experienced any sort of capitalist turn following Deng Xiaoping’s market reforms in the 1980s, a view that even many Chinese leftist nationalists do not hold. Nor does Qiao accept the argument that China was never socialist or communist and always state capitalist, even during the Mao period, as some argue.
