Thanks, China: Wet Markets Gave Us the
Coronavirus and They're Back In Business

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 3/31/2020 8:20:20 AM

The start of the coronavirus has been traced back to a wet market in Wuhan, China, where patient zero purchased bat soup. Exotic mammals in unsanitary conditions flood the streets. And, despite what we know about the start of this virus, China has allowed wet markets to reopen, The Daily Mail reported. Even worse, there are no apparent attempts to raise hygiene standards to prevent another virus from emerging. From The Daily Mail: Terrified dogs and cats crammed into rusty cages. Bats and scorpions offered for sale as traditional medicine. Rabbits and ducks slaughtered and skinned side by side on a stone floor covered with blood, filth, and animal remains.

Does it sound believable that an undercooked bat soup really caused this worldwide crisis...??....as many in the media would have you believe? Let's talk about how a Harvard professor of bio chem - Charles Lieber- was working secretly for a Chinese lab and concealing the significantly large funds he received for doing so. How about the fact that there's a bio lab in Wuhan and the Harvard professor had ties to that lab. How about the Chinese national that was arrested in December 2019 at Boston airport trying to leave the country with 21 concealed vials of bio materials. How about the Chinese agent that was recently discovered working 20 years as a driver for Diane Fienstein? Now China is trying to blame the virus on The U.S. Military. Leftist media worldwide is promoting that lie Let's talk about how China was fighting against the huge crowds of Hong Kong protesters that were waving American flags and praising Trump. They are gone now. Let's discuss how Trump has been tough on China's trade practices and theft of intellectual property. The decades of trade imbalance was being forcefully addressed. Now China casually mentions that it makes a very high percentage of our medicines. Let's talk about how the media screams "Racist!" whenever Trump rightly uses the term "Chinese Virus" .

Anyone who really believes that a bowl of bat soup, and not an engineered bio-weapon caused this debacle is woefully naive.

Baumann, you need to dig a little more deeply on the story, honey. The virus didn't come into existence at the wet markets out of the clear blue. It came from the bio-weapons lab in Wuhan where virus testing on animals is performed. Just another small detail you could investigate for us. Where did the lab get the virus from? Early reports from the Canadian msm still point to a microbiological research facility in Canada. Could you chase this down for us, too.

It has not yet been scientifically proven that the wet markets were the origination point for Wuhan. They all seem to forget about their virus "study" program going on in the same neighborhood.

The wet markets are a response to a situation in a communist country that can't feed it's own people who then resort to eating some things that would be best avoided. The media enablers will tell you that bat soup is a delicacy in China but I think that's BS and just cover for widespread food shortages. Couple the wet markets with third world sanitary habits and it's a recipe for pandemics.

Odds are, neither virus source is wrong. Communist research into bioweapons probably just capitalized on the fact that their people have historically been so starved they they'll eat anything, and that has historically led to weird diseases popping up from time to time.

China is still, at the root of it, a medieval country, with medieval culture. China is the reason that poachers kill bears for their gall bladders in the USA, poachers kill rhinos for their horns in Africa and tigers for their teeth, and I believe some other parts in India and Siberia. These primitive, literally medieval people pay big money for body parts of exotic animals "for their medicinal properties" (eye roll) - just exactly like they did in the year 1264. Expecting a godless, ethics-free, medieval culture with a Communist totalitarian government to behave like a modern, free, European culture, Christian society is a vain hope.

Those so-called wet markets are deeply embedded in Chinese culture and even if the Chinese Government there attempts to permanently shut them down, chances are the government there will just drive them underground. The Chinese have their most important biological laboratory that has been doing all sorts of research relating to viruses only a complete of hundred years from the wet market that is in question. That laboratory has been said to have been working under unsafe conditions in the past. So who is to say that a worker or workers at that laboratory were not infected there with a very contagious and strong strain of the corona virus, then walked through the wet market after work in proximity to large numbers of shoppers, and started spreading the virus all over the world. The close proximity of the wet market to the laboratory certainly gives the Chinese government an convenient target on which to defect blame away from their official (biological warfare) laboratory. Who knows for sure?

The "bat soup" is a cover story by the ChiCom propagandists, IMO. There is a bioresearch lab in Wuhan about a quarter mile from this market, making the market a convenient excuse. There are published scientific research papers from a scientist in that institute about his work studying bat viruses. This far, these are hard facts. I have seen the scientific papers online, the institute permits their scientists to publish, which proves that at least some of the work there is not hidden. The speculation is that a worker or researcher, probably the low level types that clean cages and feed the research animals, in this case the bats, got sloppy/lazy and managed to infect him/her self, then passed it on to the surrounding community. It was well spread by the time the first outside doctor reported it publicly. Speculation, but my bioresearch scientist professor friend is who put me onto this, says it happens all the time in the US. Low paid workers often are just lazy, incompetent. Once the outside doc had reported it publicly, the ChiCom "erasers" were called in to cover it up. The food market was blamed, the outside doc arrested and forced to sign a confession that he had lied about the whole thing and did it to harm the Chinese Communist Party - standard ChiCom "eraser" stuff, their SOP. This was reported by ChiCom news agencies, when they were still trying to cover it up. Then a few weeks later, it was announced that the outside doc who first announced it, had the virus, then a couple days later, that he "died of the virus".....yeah, right. Probably they shot him, my guess. Or refused treatment to ensure he died. Either way, dead men tell no tales. At this point, the ChiComs had realized that the "eraser team" had failed to cover it up. Out comes the Panda mask, and they become the benevolent government working diligently to save their people and the world from this random event, which is nobody's fault. The market is a cover story. Handy, because they are medieval and actually do eat that garbage. Some claim that the bioresearch lab is a "bioweapons lab"....my opinion is that they are "assuming facts not in evidence", and need to list that as their theory rather than state it as fact. It may well be that this it true, but not yet proven, IMO.

I have no clue if this came from bats or if this came from animals used in lab experiments at the bioweapons lab near Wuhan and that were then sold to the public for $$. I lean toward the later. China's total and complete disregard for world public health and safety and their horrific record on human rights and outrageous animal cruelty should make them the pariahs of the world. Regardless, the Chinese eating habits are revolting. Some, even on here, have said in relation to Asians odd tastes that "meat is meat" especially when it comes to eating what we consider pets. Sorry but no it's not. We in the West learned this long ago, hence our much safer and more close!y controlled food supply and the fact there are many animals we just don't farm for meat. China learned nothing from this and they never will. Ostracize them!!

China created this and then tried to engineer a long term win out of it. Well, let's see how that plays out. Lots more resentment toward China. A US market turning inward before this will tighten even more. Forget trade deals China. Imagine your list of empty factory towns expanding by 30% at least, or much more by a US economy dealing with a big correction. If you had trouble before this, you haven't seen anything yet.

A police officer who pulled over a doctor for speeding let her go with a warning — and handed her five N95 masks instead of a ticket, she wrote in a Facebook post. Lead-footed cardiologist Sarosh Ashraf Janjua wrote that a Minnesota state trooper stopped her for speeding on I-35 last week. Janjua, of Massachusetts, handed over her license and expected a speeding ticket for driving over the limit. “He went back to his patrol car to look up my license, and when he returned, quite firmly told me it was very irresponsible of me to be speeding, especially since I would not only take up resources if I got into an accident,

A Virginia store clerk heard a crash that sounded like a car had crashed into the place at 4:30 a.m. on Sunday. He grabbed a gun and shot at three masked men he found stealing merchandise and cash from the shop. When it was over, the clerk was the one in handcuffs. He now sits in jail on no bail, charged with crimes for which he could be locked up for 20 years. Those charges include: "Malicious Wounding, Reckless Handling of a Firearm and Violation of a Protective Order." Police say they'll get around to charging the robbers later.

"Nancy Pelosi is a cancer on the body politic." Those are the words of Mark Levin and he is profoundly correct. It is actually an understatement. This woman has dedicated her entire recent term to impeaching President Trump over a phone call. She stupidly bought into Adam Schiff’s lunacy that they had the evidence that the president had threatened the president of Ukraine with a quid pro quo -- either investigate the Clinton campaign’s meddling in the 2016 election or else. None of that was true, any more than the Russia collusion hoax, but Pelosi still gambled that she could take out Trump with that phony ploy.

Since COVID-19 went (*ahem*) viral, the news has been nothing but bad. While we're catching stories here and there that, around the world, people have stepped up to take care of business, whether health care workers, truckers, delivery people, store clerks, and factory workers, those stories are sporadic and easily overwhelmed by bad news. Even the lovely videos of singing Italians seemed to be brief bursts of light in an otherwise dark sky. America’s Hollywood elite tried to help, but it turns out that most of them -- all alone in their homes without scripts, studios, producers, directors, publicists -- are surprisingly tone-deaf.

When I grew up, and for most of my life after that, at a grocery store, the clerk would ring up my groceries and put them in a useful paper or plastic bag emblazoned with the store’s motto. I’d take the bag home and use it again. If it was paper, I used it for book covers, storing annual tax-relevant documents, wrapping packages destined for UPS, and holding recycling. If it was plastic, I used it for bathroom garbage bags, packing school lunches, padding breakables for shipping, etc. All that changed when California decided to "ban the bag." The reason given was that paper and plastic bags destroyed the environment.

A new ABC News/Washington Post opinion poll has some very bad news for former Vice President Joe Biden. If he secures the Democratic presidential nomination -- which he will, of course -- a full 15 percent of Bernie Sanders supporters plan to cast their vote for President Donald Trump's reelection. That's extremely troubling for Biden, because in 2016, only 12% of Bernie's supporters broke for Trump after their guy's historic intraparty fight with Hillary Clinton. But, USA Today reports, there's some good news in there. You see, the 15% of Bernie-istas who plan to vote for Trump in that scenario represent "just 6% of Democrats and voters who lean Democratic."
