America must end its reliance on Communist China for essential goods

Let’s be clear: the coronavirus plague facing us comes exclusively as a courtesy of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). No Communist China, no crisis. The CCP lied and dissembled the reality of this often-deadly virus, their deception costing the rest of the world as many as six weeks of preparation. Those six weeks will end up costing how many thousands of lives worldwide? How many trillions of dollars?

For almost a year, I have been talking about our dependence on Chinese pharmaceuticals. China controlling the world’s medical drug supply poses a direct threat to our independence and national security. Harry Kazianis said it best: "Considering the geopolitical and economic challenge the United States faces from an authoritarian China, Beijing now can use its control of the ingredients that make many of the drugs… as leverage in any dispute with Washington."

It looks like we now have two major candidates for president this November: Joe Biden and Donald J. Trump. When it comes to China, the choice could not be starker. Biden has cheered on the "Party of Davos" global elites as they sold America's industrial birthright piece by piece to China. Trump, on the other hand, has spoken out against that feckless and suicidal course every chance he got since the 1990s. Joe Biden has sold out to China for the past forty years, and Donald Trump has been warning America about the consequences of that sellout at every step along the way.

As Americans, we have a lot on our plate right now, with the Coronavirus at the top of the list, but we also have an election coming up. The "Last Men Standing" Democrat debate Sunday night was stupefying. It was Biden v. Bernie trying to out-socialist each other, united only in their disdain for Donald Trump and a desire to dive deep into our wallets.

What's Biden's "Big Plan" for combating the coronavirus? You can read the more complete version at because it's exactly what President Trump is already doing. Meanwhile, Bernie's solution is to nationalize the very companies that are now hard at work developing and producing what will prove to cure or protect all of us from the CCP's foul creation.

Both Democrats and Republicans over the last 30 years have been more than happy to hand over large chunks of the US economy to China – for the right price. We now depend on a ruthless regime for vital goods like base ingredients for lifesaving drugs. Joe Biden has been a huge Communist China booster. Donald Trump told us the truth even when we didn't want to hear it.

And if this crisis tells us nothing else, it tells us which of them was right. Trump's 2020 reelection can't come soon enough, and he needs allies like me in Congress to help him implement the life-saving America First agenda.
