Cui Bono? China. The Virus Outbreak Was Deliberate

John Hinderaker at Powerline asks: If you ran the Chinese Communist Party, what would your number one strategic goal have been in late 2019? Undoubtedly, to get rid of China’s nemesis, Donald Trump, and replace him with Beijing Joe Biden. How far would China’s rulers have gone to achieve that goal? Look what they have done to get rid of the Uighurs, a minor annoyance.

Could the Chinese have deliberately arranged for the worldwide dissemination of the Wuhan virus? Yes, rather easily. They could have created the virus, too, but that isn’t necessary. Once the virus escaped from a laboratory in Wuhan, by means unknown, the rest was probably inevitable.

Of course, the virus did some damage within China, but nowhere near enough to pose a threat to the regime. And to the extent that there was collateral damage in Europe and elsewhere around the world, such damage, from the CCP’s point of view, was a helpful distraction at a time when China is building up its armed forces and extending its military footprint across Asia.

Does anyone think China’s rulers are either too inept or too principled to unleash the Wuhan virus on purpose? If so, why? They have done worse. And here, they would have been playing for enormous stakes–restoration of the pro-China, globalist regime that preceded Trump’s America First rebellion. Hardly any price would have been too much to pay.

And, having watched the first three years of the Trump administration unfold, China’s rulers could well have calculated that a pandemic originating in their homeland stood a good chance of reshaping America’s electoral landscape. The desperate Democrats and their press would blame the president and his administration for the disease–something that has never occurred before in American history, but was sure to happen this time. If the Chinese did seek to influence our presidential race, they were successful. President Trump has gone from being a prohibitive favorite in January to an underdog today, and the reason is the Wuhan virus. Cui Bono? | Power Line

    I have always thought from the git go this was biological warfare from China. My brother has lived and worked in China for many years. The shear numbers of their population is uncomprehensible for most Americans. He said the size of their cities make our largest seem tiny in comparison.There is one city in the interior of China that is nothing but Aides victims populating it. Millions are in that city. A Chinese medical experiment that went wrong. Killing a few million of their own citizens would be considered a positive for the Party leaders. The Party leaders are ruthless dictators who only care for themselves.

    It was created in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
    Though they may use external tools at the time and as convenient, the enemy is well within the infinitely porous castle walls.

    The Chicoms have killed 100 million plus of their own people and still have 1.4 billion to spare. Why would they hesitate to kill us except out of fear?

    I don’t differ, except in so much as you characterize the Uighurs as a “minor annoyance”.

    Not that I approve of what China is doing to them, or condone it, but if you think back a few years, you will recall regular events of the Uighurs going all Jihad in various place in China, screaming “Aloha Snackbar” and knifing the crap out of whoever they could get to.

    When you are dealing with a country who will release a plague in order to get it’s way, how long do you think they are going to tolerate some minority group going all Jihad on them?

    Just saying…

    Of course it was biological warfare by the Chicoms. They unleashed it, very secretively at first, allowing it to spread under the radar, both within and outside China, suppressing (with the assistance of the WHO) any information or reporting about it, silenced doctors trying to sound the alarm, and then, once it was too late, it had already spread to the rest of the planet. Then they began releasing alarming videos, of people being locked in their homes, people being physically removed and taken off the streets, and then of course remember the videos of those trucks spewing gigantic clouds of disinfectant in the cities? To me, that final part was the giveaway. Clearly staged and meant for widespread viral (NPI) distribution across the planet, eagerly gobbled up and re-broadcast over and over by our despicable, mendacious media to spread mass panic across the panic. With our despicable media, clearly understanding that this would seriously harm Donald Trump‘s reelection chances, eager to root on the virus.

    You really should giving space to the neo-con filth who have done more damage to the US than the Chinese could have dreamed of.

    Come the revolution John Hinderaker and his ilk will be the first into the Woodchipper.

    I don’t know the logical construct to name, however if enough happenstance coordinates, and has actual strategic merit, it is pretty hard to not theorize the possibility of intent. In some strange, smoke-filled boardrooms (not Bilderburg or Illuminati; I don’t go for that shit) in the bowels of Communist hideouts, the machinations of evil are at play. Usually, we don;t know the details.

    Ever read the stitches on a slow ball?

    Like the Trump-Russia collusion story, this wasn’t planned out, but was used as it occurred.

    The Russian BS was originally a simple dig-up-dirt operation by the Ds, but evolved as the possibilities unfolded. Use it to pull a Nixon and spy on the campaign. Desperately use it to try to cover up the spying, first as a distraction while “files were shredded”, then to try to remove Trump.

    The wu-flu was either an accidental escape from the lab of a research strain, or naturally evolved, it makes no difference. There was no plan to start,until Xi saw how the west was reacting. Vocal chicken-littles all over the place presented an opportunity, and it wasn’t wasted.
    I’m sure that it didn’t take long for them to figure out that the fatality rate, although higher than a standard flu year, was no SARS. So, push the narrative of its danger, set your “influencers” to gin up as much panic as possiblle, and viola’!… crash the US economy.

    Note that once the rest of the world was set on the path of self-destruction, the Chinese epidemic literally disappeared overnight. This wasn’t for external propaganda purposes, but for internal gaslighting. Xi made the calculation that he was willing to sacrifice some percentage of the population (probably about .5%) that would have survived with more aggressive actions -that didn’t even need to be to the shut-it-down level of the west- in order to get the Chinese economy opened up quickly to take advantage of their competition abandoning the field of battle.

    Unfortunately, Trump, prescient or lucky, decided to use the origin of the virus as a play in the ongoing battle, which has countered much of Xi machinations. Unfortunately, as usual, he’s battling the Chinese-bought-and-paid-for politicians and media.

    Don’t count Trump out just yet. Remember that the supposedly accurate polls all said Hillary would win by a landslide just 3 weeks before the election. I believe the gnashing of teeth and rending of blue clothes and pink pussy hats will be tremendous in November. Sweet music for my ears.

    My vote is no, definitely no. They say it’s hard to distinquish incompetence from malice. In this case the malice came into play after incompetence let the monkey out of the bag. Now, things are being steered entirely by malice, cleverly leaving the incompetence to us. Brilliant, really. Know your enemy, and they do, very likely far better than they know themselves, which is not very well. Perhaps this can be said of people in general.
