(FreedomJournal.Org)- While the Democrats perform linguistic acrobatics to explain how it is both racist to blame China while also admitting that stopping travel from China reduced the spread of the virus, the Republicans are ploughing ahead with investigations to find out exactly how the virus spread so far and so wide.
Republican members of the House of Representatives launched a new task force on Thursday that will specifically focus on an investigation into China, the handling of the outbreak, and the alleged cover-up that happened during November and December.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced the initiative during a press conference.
“We have learned more about COVID, and one thing has become very clear; China’s cover-up directly led to this crisis,” he explained. “The stakes are too high to sit idly by, which is why today I’m announcing the Republican-led China task force.”
Before you go and think that the Republicans are charging ahead with a partisan effort, it’s important to note that McCarthy and his Republican colleagues have invited several Democrats to take part in the effort, but to no avail.
“I invited the Democrats to join with us,” he told the press. “There was one moment in time they said yes. A few months ago they said no. I would say there’s no more important time now to join with us together,” he added, in a plea for bipartisanship.
The Democrats, refusing to work constructively with Republicans? That’s not like them…
Texas Representative Michael McCaul will be the chairman of the new task force, and he will be joined by Mike Gallagher, Liz Cheney, Elise Stefanik, Jim Banks, and Adam Kinzinger.
McCarthy has a history of standing up to China through the coronavirus pandemic. On April 6 he called out the communist Chinese government for lying about the outbreak of the coronavirus. He criticized the Chinese government’s efforts to keep American professionals and scientists out of the country who were trying to find information about where the virus came from and how it was allowed to spread so far.
In a tweet, he said, “If the Chinese Communist Party would have allowed our scientists, our researchers, and our doctors in at the very beginning, we perhaps could have contained the coronavirus so that the rest of the world wouldn’t have to suffer.”
Looks like the right man got the job, then…
