Senator Tom Cotton slammed the communist Chinese government, describing its actions as “deliberately malevolent” when it comes to the coronavirus pandemic. He also suggested that Chinese students should not be allowed to study sciences within the US until the country has been properly held accountable.

Cotton said that he believes China consciously allowed the virus to spread so that the playing field would be levelled, and other countries would also experience economic disaster.

“Wherever it originated … we know that the Chinese Communist Party was both criminally negligent and incompetent at first, and then deliberately, deliberately malevolent in the way they responded to this virus, for their own people and the world,” Cotton said during a Fox News interview.

“As early as the second week of December, it was clear that this virus was spreading from person to person. By late December, it was spreading to doctors in Wuhan hospitals. Some doctors were trying to blow the whistle on these facts, and the secret police arrived at their doorsteps in the middle of the night.” Cotton added.

“So only after China fessed up to the WHO on December 31 did the world know what was happening. Yet, still they continued to deny that it was spreading from person to person into mid-January. That allowed millions of people to leave Wuhan,” Cotton continued.

“And then, finally, China continued to pressure the WHO and other countries not to stop international travel from China. That meant that hundreds of thousands of persons left China after this virus was spread far outside of Wuhan, which allowed the virus to escape China’s borders and get to the United States and get to Europe and get to essentially every country in the world.” the Senator urged.

Cotton noted that China allowed flights to continue in spite of the outbreak “because they didn’t want to see their relative power and standing in the world decline.”

“They also knew that, once this virus began to spread outside of Wuhan, it would wreak economic havoc throughout China. And, in fact, China had the first contraction in the first quarter of this year since the cultural revolution ended in the 1970s,” Cotton added.

The Senator charged that China, worried that it would fall behind the rest of the world economically, deliberately allowed the virus to spread.

“I believe the Chinese communist leaders, when they were aware of those facts by mid-January, made the conscious decision not to explain to the world that it was transmissible between humans, not to shut down travel, not to ask for American or other kind of international scientific help, but to allow this virus to escape their borders, because if they were going to suffer an economic contraction, they were not going to allow the world to continue to prosper, and China be the only country whose economy was declining.” Cotton said.

Cotton also urged that it is an injustice that the United States has trained some Chinese nationals to “go back to China to compete for our jobs, to take our business, and ultimately to steal our property and design weapons and other devices that can be used against the American people.”

“If Chinese students want to come here and study Shakespeare and the Federalist Papers, that’s what they need to learn from America,” Cotton said, adding “They don’t need to learn quantum computing and artificial intelligence from America.”

Nancy Pelosi made a startling admission Sunday, noting that China is engaging in election manipulation and that it wants to see Joe Biden become President.

An an CNN interview, Pelosi argued that China’s manipulation isn’t “equivalent” to that of Russia because the Communist state is on team Biden, while Russia supports Trump.

“China would prefer Joe Biden, but Russia is actively 24/7 interfering in our election, they did so in 2016 and they’re doing so now, and [the administration says] that to a certain extent, but they need to tell the people more,” Pelosi proclaimed.

Pelosi also insultingly argued that Americans do not have a sufficient “understanding” regarding “foreign influence” in US elections, for which she also blamed the Trump Administration.

She added that the White House hasn’t done enough to panic the people into believing that Russia is running their country.

“I can’t divulge information that’s classified”, Pelosi said, while basically warning that there is a far reaching global plot to interfere in the election.

While the official narrative of yesterday’s massive explosion in Beirut remains ‘some chemicals in a warehouse’, President Trump told reporters Tuesday evening after a meeting with US generals that “They seem to think it was an attack. It was a bomb of some kind.”

Referring to “our great generals”, Trump said that “According to them – they would know better than I would – but they seem to think it was an attack. It was a bomb of some kind.”

The blast was so massive that it levelled buildings up to ten miles away, and was felt in Cyprus, over a hundred and forty miles away.

Beirut has been declared a ‘disaster zone’ by Lebanon’s defense council, and the health ministry has raised the death toll to over 100 killed, with some 4000 wounded.

The US embassy warned that “There are reports of toxic gases released in the explosion so all in the area should stay indoors and wear masks if available.”

The Prime Minister of Lebanon claimed that around 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate that was left unsecured for many years was to blame for the explosion.

Meanwhile, Israel and Hezbollah both denied having any involvement.

Researchers Warn Of “Jaw Dropping” Crash In Global Fertility Rate

“It’s extraordinary, we’ll have to reorganise societies”.

Researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation have warned that the planet is not prepared for an ongoing global population crash, and that the impact will be “jaw dropping”.

The BBC reports that the research, published in the Lancet highlights that the global fertility rate almost halved to 2.4 in 2017, and projections indicate that it will fall below 1.7 by 2100.

For further context, In 1950, an average of 4.7 children were being born for every woman.

The research suggests that almost every country on the planet could have shrinking populations by the end of this century, with 23 nations projected to see their populations halve by 2100.

The research indicates that the total global population will peak at 9.7 billion in 2064, and then naturally shrink back to 8.8 billion come the end of the century.

Fewer births and longer life expectancy will also mean a drastically older population.

“That’s a pretty big thing; most of the world is transitioning into natural population decline,” Professor Christopher Murray noted.

“I think it’s incredibly hard to think this through and recognise how big a thing this is; it’s extraordinary, we’ll have to reorganise societies,” Murray further warned.

The research highlights that Japan’s population likely peaked at 128 million in 2017 yet will fall below 53 million by 2100.

In addition, Italy’s population is expected to crash from 61 million to 28 million in the same time period.

“It will create enormous social change,” Professor Murray urged, adding “Who pays tax in a massively aged world? Who pays for healthcare for the elderly? Who looks after the elderly? Will people still be able to retire from work?”

“We need a soft landing,” Murray warned.

When asked whether the trend could threaten the human race, Murray said “I find people laugh it off; they can’t imagine it could be true, they think women will just decide to have more kids.”

“If you can’t [find a solution] then eventually the species disappears, but that’s a few centuries away.” Murray added.
