A moment will come—perhaps sooner than later—when the American Left will need to make a choice between advertising the virtues of American government and our way of life or enabling China in their design to take a position as the preeminent global economic power.
President Trump has shown great leadership during this manufactured crisis. Let’s hope he continues to ponder his observation that we do not want to get ourselves into a situation in which the cure is worse than the disease.
At some point, Beijing needs to be held financially accountable for the worldwide havoc, misery, and death caused by the Chinese virus.
The Chinese Communist Party’s threats include potential disruption to global supply chains, financial markets, and deadly pandemics. But the “soft power” spread by Confucius Institutes on college and university campuses is another type of virus we must immediately quarantine from American culture.
It’s time for Beijing to come clean.
America’s small businesses, our machinists, die-casters, plastic injection molders, electronics parts suppliers, and others are eager to get to work providing the medical equipment the nation needs but the companies that hold the patents and process patents for this equipment need to open up and ask for bids.
It’s time for a conscious uncoupling from China before this miscreant mess of a rogue state destroys the economy and kills us all.

China is not just a strategic competitor, it is a hostile foreign power.

And they know how to use it—especially in a time of crisis.
Nothing in China is as it seems.
In elaborating the sovereignty of Europe, there is no substitute for the Europeans; Germany cannot be governed from the White House and should not wish to be. It is time for the Germans and French to remember how respectable Great Powers govern themselves and discharge their obligations as allies.
Our elites are more interested in proving to themselves and the world that they’re not xenophobes, not racist, and not against open markets to enrich the Third World than they are in their duty to our country and our citizens.
It doesn’t matter if the peace deal is good or bad, whether it halts the fighting or causes more strife. The American people want out.

The Pentagon may finally start moving rather than blocking projects such as 5G and USA Rare Earths now that the Defense Department’s No. 3 man is out.
