Yesterday afternoon the Chinese Communist Party in Beijing announced journalists from the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post have been expelled from the country. Journalists who remain are being told to report to the Chinese government.

All of these outlets were working on stories about the Wuhan coronavirus, which the government has repeatedly covered up. This censorship led to a devastating pandemic, which is wreaking havoc on the global economy as the virus continues its lethal path of destruction.

This expulsion of reporters, who have been publishing crucial information about the virus, proves China has more to hide. The country’s officials claim they want to be better understood and yet, continue to shut down any last piece of transparency on this issue. Why? Because the truth of the Wuhan coronavirus timeline is devastating to the regime and completely undermines their ongoing narrative about competent handling of the crisis.

In recent days, the Chinese foreign minister and other officials have unleashed libelous claims the U.S. military started the Wuhan coronavirus. Reporting proves otherwise.

Chinese laboratories identified a mystery virus as a highly infectious new pathogen by late December last year, but they were ordered to stop tests, destroy samples and suppress the news, a Chinese media outlet has revealed.

A regional health official in Wuhan, centre of the outbreak, demanded the destruction of the lab samples that established the cause of unexplained viral pneumonia on January 1. China did not acknowledge there was human-to-human transmission until more than three weeks later.

The detailed revelations by Caixin Global, a respected independent publication, provide the clearest evidence yet of the scale of the cover-up in the crucial early weeks when the opportunity was lost to control the outbreak.

Censors have been rapidly deleting the report from the Chinese internet.

“The disinformation campaign that they are waging is designed to shift responsibility. Now is not the time for recrimination. Now is the time to solve this global pandemic and work to take down risks to Americans and people all across the world,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told reporters Tuesday.

“We know this much: We know that the first government to be aware of the Wuhan virus was the Chinese Government. That imposes a special responsibility to raise the flag, to say, ‘We have a problem, this is different and unique and presents risk.’ And it took an awful long time for the world to become aware of this risk that was sitting there, residing inside of China,” he continued. “We’ll do the after-action when the time is right. Every nation has a responsibility to share all of their data, all of their information in as timely and accurate a fashion as they have the ability to do not only because it’s the right thing to do, but because that’s how you save lives for your own people as well. The Chinese Communist Party had a responsibility to do this not only for Americans and Italians and South Koreans and Iranians who are now suffering, but for their own people as well.”

The Chinese have moved to scrub all evidence of the virus and where it came from. They’re shutting down labs that could be used to find a vaccine and have been arresting people, including a doctor who died from the disease, who have been sounding the alarm for months.

The Shanghai laboratory where researchers published the world’s first genome sequence of the deadly coronavirus that causes Covid-19 has been shut down.

The laboratory at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Centre was ordered to close for “rectification” on January 12, a day after Professor Zhang Yongzhen’s team published the genome sequence on open platforms. It closed temporarily the following day.

The release of the data helped researchers develop test kits for the virus.

“The centre was not given any specific reasons why the laboratory was closed for rectification. [We have submitted] four reports [asking for permission] to reopen but we have not received any replies,” a source with the centre said, requesting anonymity because of the matter’s sensitivity.

“The closure has greatly affected the scientists and their research when they should be racing against the clock to find the means to help put the novel coronavirus outbreak under control,” the source said.

China continues to lie about a virus that started in their country. They allowed it to spread to the rest of the world by engaging in lethal censorship. People are dead and lives have been destroyed in a matter of days due to a cratering economy. The only question now is how Beijing will be held accountable.

Speaking from the White House Monday afternoon, President Trump announced new and stricter guidance for restaurants, bars, the number of people at a gathering and more as the war against Wuhan coronavirus continues.

“We’ve made the decision to further toughen the guidelines and blunt the infection now. We’d much rather be ahead of the curve than behind it,” Trump said. “My administration is recommending that all Americans, including the young and healthy, work to engage in schooling from home when possible, avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, avoid discretionary travel and avoid eating and drinking in bars, restaurants and public food courts.”

“If everyone makes this change or these critical changes and sacrifices now we will rally together as one nation and we will defeat the virus and have a big celebration together,” he continued. “Our government is prepared to do whatever it takes.”

President Trump also announced a candidate for a Wuhan coronavirus vaccine has started a trial. Dr. Anthony Fauci said the first injection was today.

“We now need to appeal to every single American about stopping the spread of this virus,” Dr. Deborah Birx said, specifically calling on the millennial generation to step up and take responsibility. “To be able to address this virus comprehensively, that we cannot see, for which we don’t have a vaccine or a therapeutic, the only thing we have right now is the amazing ingenuity and compassion of the American people. We’re appealing to all Americans to take these steps to protect each other and to ensure that the virus doesn’t spread. These guidelines are very specific, they’re very detailed, they will only work if every American takes this together to heart and responds as one nation and one people to stop the spread of this virus.”

When asked how long Americans should expect these kind of restrictions to go on, President Trump said the virus could be “washed out” by July or August. He said the economy, which is taking a massive hit on Main Street and Wall Street, will “work itself out.”

This is a breaking story, stay tuned for updates.

As the race for the Democrat nomination for president continues to heat up, former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg and his team have their sights set on the new front runner: Bernie Sanders.

The rivalry between the two started immediately when Bloomberg, a billionaire Sanders regularly condemns, entered the race for the White House in November. But as Sanders continues to rack up the delegates, Team Bloomberg is going all in on his background and dumping a whole bunch of unpleasant research all over the airwaves.

During an interview with CNN Tuesday morning, Bloomberg Senior Advisor Timothy O’Brien held nothing back when he exposed Sanders’ background. His history includes writing about female rape fantasies, children running around naked, children touching each other in private places and more.

The anchor is obviously shocked, but she shouldn’t be. Sanders’ record on this stuff has been out there for years. It’s been exposed by digital media outlets and conveniently ignored by the “mainstream” press.

MotherJones did a lengthy feature on Sanders’ essays. Here’s a sample:

Treating children with kid gloves, he believed, was turning them into sexually repressed worker drones. In a 1969 essay in the Freeman, he wrote, “In Vermont, at a state beach, a mother is reprimanded by Authority for allowing her 6 month old daughter to go about without her diapers on. Now, if children go around naked, they are liable to see each others sexual organs, and maybe even touch them. Terrible thing! If we [raise] children up like this it will probably ruin the whole pornography business, not to mention the large segment of the general economy which makes its money by playing on peoples sexual frustrations.”

Over to my HotAir colleague Ed Morrissey:

In regard to Sanders’ intense focus on sex and children, this was a big part of the Left at the time. It didn’t catch on much in America, thank the Lord, but it did in France and Germany in their “1968 Movement.” France in particular is only now beginning to address the damage done.

On his way to Riyadh Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned the terrorist regime that continued attacks on U.S. interests in the region will not be tolerated.

“I never broadcast what our response may be in advance but we’re mindful that it cannot become ordinary course that the Iranians, through their proxy forces in Iraq, putting the lives of Americans at risk. This can’t be ordinary. This can’t be routine. There in the end has to be accountability connected to those serious attacks,” Pompeo told reporters on his plane. “I’ve been tracking it. Our teams are tracking it. Department of Defense is tracking it, too.”

In recent days rocket and artillery attacks have been launched against U.S. targets in Iraq, including the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad and a coalition base. The pattern of behavior and type of attacks point directly to Iran as the culprit. In January, three rockets hit the U.S. Embassy compound in Baghdad. In December, an American contractor was killed.

Citing an imminent threat, the United States removed leading global terrorist and Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps General Qasem Soleimani from the battlefield on January 3. Soleimani was visiting Iranian-backed Iraqi official and terrorist Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis when he was killed by a drone strike outside of Baghdad International Airport.

In addition to addressing recent aggression, Pompeo responded to comments made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani over the weekend. During a conference in Iran, Rouhani said the country will not come back to the table for talks until the U.S. backs off of its maximum pressure campaign.

“We’re prepared to talk at anytime but they’ve got to fundamentally change their behavior. That’s what we’ve asked for consistently for three years now of the Trump administration. We’ve laid down the outlines of what that would look like, the 12 points, the things they have to do, but they’re really common sense,” Pompeo said in response to a question asked by Townhall. “You can’t build out your nuclear program, you can’t foment terror around the world, even today you were just talking about this attack in Iraq, extraterritorial kinetic activity. Just unacceptable.”

“And finally the missile program back in a place where they are permitted to defend themselves but no more than that and the human rights violations. The fact that they are still detaining Europeans and Americans unlawfully is unacceptable,” he continued. “When they’re prepared to come to the table to talk about those so are we. We’re standing by. We’re not anxious, we’re not rushed. The pressure campaign continues. It’s not just an economic pressure campaign. It’s diplomatic pressure, it’s isolation through diplomacy as well and you’ve seen to make sure we have the resources in place to deter their attacks further.”

Over the next two days, Pompeo will meet with Saudi Arabian officials to discuss the ongoing security challenge of Iran, in addition to other local and regional issues. He will then travel to Oman to meet with new Sultan Haitham bin Tariq.

Despite President Trump’s acquittal on two articles of impeach,ment in the Senate last week, democrat impeachment managers seem determined to keep their pursuit of the issue alive.

But according to a new survey from Rasmussen Reports, the vast majority of American voters want Democrats to move on. Further, they think impeachment made President Trump stronger.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 32% of Likely U.S. Voters think House Democrats should continue their efforts to remove Trump from office. Sixty-two percent (62%) say Democrats in Congress should now focus on other issues.

For Democratic voters, it’s a close call: 48% say their representatives in the House should continue their efforts to remove Trump from the White House, but 43% say they should focus on other issues. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans and 70% of voters not affiliated with either major party say House Democrats should zero in on other issues.

Fifty-five percent (55%) of all voters think the unsuccessful attempt to remove Trump from office has made him stronger politically. Just 16% say it has made him weaker, while 23% believe the failed impeachment effort has had no impact

When nearly half of Democrats say it’s time to move on…it’s long past time to move on.

In the meantime, President Trump is in New Hampshire for a rally tonight while democrats who want his job continue to campaign in the Granite State.

A news clip from 1987 finds multiple examples of former Vice President Joe Biden appearing to lie about his background and plagiarizing other politicians during the 1988 presidential campaign.

The video — which appears to be multiple segments compiled together — starts out with a news clip highlighting then-presidential hopeful and Democratic Sen. Joe Biden‘s comments during his appearance at the Iowa State Fair where he “used phrases identical” to that of British Labour Party Leader Neal Kinnock.

The video posted on Twitter reads, “In 1987 Joe Biden was proven to be a pathological liar. In 1987, when Joe Biden was running for President, he did not get caught in a lie — he got caught in at least 9 lies. They engulfed his entire campaign and almost derailed his political career.”

WATCH:

When running for office, @JoeBiden does not just have gaffes or embellishments, he creates wildly fictional storylines about his life and work that simply are not true.

These are lies. And he tells them to get votes and build a rep he has not earned.pic.twitter.com/FUjALdqA3C

The reporter on the clip goes on to note that “Biden seems to be claiming Kinnock’s vision and life as his own.”

Tuesday night President Trump traveled to deep blue New Jersey for a campaign rally. Despite freezing temperatures in the middle of winter, people camped out a day ahead of his remarks in order to make it inside the arena.

According to Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale, over a quarter of registered attendees were democrats. Another significant portion of people have never voted before.

The demographics of the New Jersey rally are reflective of President Trump’s previous rallies in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Minnesota and elsewhere.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton won New Jersey by 14 points.

President Trump has issued a special proclamation for Christmas.

Melania and I send our warmest greetings to those celebrating Christmas in the United States and around the world. During this joyous time of year, we join a grateful Nation in thanking God for His abundant blessings and boundless love.

As families, friends, and communities come together to rejoice in the birth of Christ, we are reminded of the divine message from the first Christmas: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” While the challenges that face our country are great, the bonds that unite us as Americans are much stronger. Together, we must strive to foster a culture of deeper understanding and respect—traits that exemplify the teachings of Christ.

As we celebrate Christmas, we remember the precious religious liberties our forefathers so righteously fought to secure. We also pause to pay tribute to those courageous men and women of our Armed Forces who continue to fight for our cherished freedoms. As Commander in Chief, I salute them for their service and thank their family members for their shared sacrifice in this noble mission, especially during the holiday season.

We hope your heart is filled with the love and joy of your faith, family, and friends this Christmas. We send our best wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

The President and First Lady Melania Trump are spending the holiday in Florida.

The White House is reacting to House Democrats who voted Wednesday night to pass two articles of impeachment against President Trump. The following is a statement from Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham.

Today marks the culmination in the House of one of the most shameful political episodes in the history of our Nation. Without receiving a single Republican vote, and without providing any proof of wrongdoing, Democrats pushed illegitimate articles of impeachment against the President through the House of Representatives. Democrats have chosen to proceed on this partisan basis in spite of the fact that the President did absolutely nothing wrong. Indeed, weeks of hearings have proved that he did nothing wrong.

Throughout the House Democrats’ entire sham impeachment, the President was denied fundamental fairness and due process under the law. The House blatantly ignored precedent and conducted the inquiry in secrecy behind closed doors so that Chairman Adam Schiff and his partisan political cronies could selectively leak information to their partners in the media to push a false narrative.

When public hearings were held before Chairman Schiff’s committee, Democrats continued their games and denied the President the ability to cross-examine witnesses or present witnesses or evidence. The proceedings in the Judiciary Committee included no fact witnesses at all and consisted solely of a biased law seminar and a staffer rehashing the slanted report that was produced by Chairman Schiff’s rigged proceeding. This unconstitutional travesty resulted in two baseless articles of impeachment that lack any support in evidence and fail even to describe any impeachable offense.

All of these antics make clear that Democrats have lost sight of what this country needs, which is a Congress that works for the people. Their boundless animus for President Trump fuels their desire to nullify the 2016 election results, and improperly influence the 2020 election.

The American people are not fooled by this disgraceful behavior. They understand fairness, due process, and substantial, reliable evidence are required before any American should be charged with wrongdoing—and certainly before impeaching a duly elected President.

The President is confident the Senate will restore regular order, fairness, and due process, all of which were ignored in the House proceedings. He is prepared for the next steps and confident that he will be fully exonerated. President Trump will continue to work tirelessly to address the needs and priorities of the American people, as he has since the day he took office.

Speaking to reporters from the White House Monday morning, Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway offered to testify as a witness in the Democrats’ impeachment inquiry if House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff does the same.

“I’ll tell you what, if Adam Schiff testifies, I’ll show up on behalf of the White House,” Conway said.

Schiff has been called to testify by a number of Republicans on Capitol Hill over his contact with the “whistleblower” who set off this process.

Last week House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced another impeachment inquiry hearing, which is set for Wednesday. He invited President Trump and White House officials to testify, but hasn’t laid out the details of who Democrats will be calling to make their case. Further, Nadler issued the invitation Tuesday before Thanksgiving and gave the White House until Sunday to reply.

“The Committee intends this hearing to serve as an opportunity to discuss the historical and constitutional basic of impeachment, as well as the Framers’ intent and understanding of terms like ‘high crimes and misdemeanors.’ We expect to discuss the constitutional framework through which the House may analyze the evidence gathered in the present inquiry. We will also discuss whether your alleged actions warrant the House’s exercising its authority to adopt article of impeachment,” Nadler wrote in a letter to President Trump.

“If you would like to participate in the hearing, please provide the Committee with notice as soon as possible. But no later than by 6:00 pm on December 1, 2019. By that time, I ask that you also indicate who will act as your counsel for these proceedings,” he continued. “While we invite you to this hearing, we remind you that if you continue to refuse to make witnesses and documents available to the committee of jurisdiction…’the chair shall have the discretion to impose appropriate remedies.'”

The White House replied on deadline and will not be sending any participants.

Before leaving for the NATO Summit in in London Monday morning, President Trump called the impeachment inquiry a “hoax.”

“The whole thing is a hoax. Everybody knows it. All you have to do is look at the words of the Ukrainian president that he just issued, and you know it’s a hoax. It’s an absolute disgrace what they’re doing to our country,” he said.
