替代切尼的Stefanik将"China lied and Americans died."追溯Covid起源口号,作为美国明年中期选举的中心。

共和党正在通过将灾难的各方面都归咎于中国,共和党显然是在试图粉饰这位前总统对危机的灾难性错误处理。

Why US Republicans are so focused on the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic​

This story was excerpted from the June 25 edition of CNN's Meanwhile in America, the daily email about US politics for global readers. Click here to read past editions and subscribe.

(CNN)"China lied and Americans died."

With those words, Elise Stefanik, the number three Republican in the House of Representatives, showed her party's plan to put the origins of the pandemic at the center of next year's midterm elections. Republicans are calling on Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to hold hearings on whether the virus was naturally transmitted from animals to humans or leaked out of a lab in Wuhan in China. They want to paint Democrats as defending the ruling Chinese Communist Party by not being more active in punishing Beijing for the virus.

Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) speaks to reporters after House Republicans voted for her as their conference chairperson at the US Capitol in Washington, DC on May 14, 2021.


Representative Elise Stefanik (R-NY) speaks to reporters after House Republicans voted for her as their conference chairperson at the US Capitol in Washington, DC on May 14, 2021.

One Republican lawmaker at a news conference beneath the Capitol Dome on Thursday laid out an important argument that explains why the pandemic's origin is so important. "It's been over a year. Why does it matter? It matters for public health. It matters for national security. It matters because (of) how we address the next pandemic," said Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Iowa, who is a physician.

The question of whether Covid-19 escaped a Wuhan lab boiled among conservative conspiracy theorists for months, but recently leaped into the mainstream: President Joe Biden tasked US intelligence agencies with investigating the question, and there is scrutiny on whether the virus could have been manipulated for extra transmissibility. But there's also a risk that politics has already corrupted investigations.

Stefanik's comments point to the highly politicized nature of the inquiry. "House Republicans want justice for the American people, we want transparency for the American people and accountability for the American people for the more than 600,000 Americans who lost their lives," said Stefanik, a Donald Trump acolyte. By piling the blame for every aspect of the disaster on China, the GOP is clearly seeking to whitewash the ex-President's disastrous mishandling of the crisis.

While Trump's team did vital work in funding vaccine development, the question of how Covid-19 started hardly explains away why he denied, downplayed and politicized the virus once it reached US shores.

病毒溯源和追究老川的玩忽职守罪,并不冲突。2020年1月份,习和川就这个事通过电话之后,川向媒体表示已经知道病毒是从哪来的,但是现在不方便说。为啥呢,因为他用来交换那份眼看要到手的巨额贸易协定,想作为连任的重要业绩。这位盲目轻信又自大的总统,只匆匆忙忙关闭了与中国的航线,就以为高枕无忧了。这次疫情可以说是老川,或者说整个共和党的滑铁卢,所以溯源既是共和党的目标,更是美国全体民意的要求。

但是,这个事的难度超过了人类历史上的所有病毒溯源,综合了国家体制,经济实力竞争,生物和制药,情报信息,国际政治,舆论宣传还有背后的军事力量的综合较量。平民死伤人数也早已超过一战和二战的总和。所以说这是第三次世界大战一点儿也不夸张。

中国共产党饿死那么多人, 还死皮赖脸的一直在台子上, 正是因为有你这样不要脸的舔奴

对于舔奴,扔粪坑都侮辱化肥, 扔太空都濡染太空, 我给你想个辙, 应该自己直接到核反应堆转化为点屁能量
