Biden, WHO Promote Beijing’s Propaganda
Biden restores both WHO funding and ChiCom influence on American campuses.
One of Joe Biden’s earliest executive orders was to reverse Donald Trump’s action to withdraw the U.S. from the World Health Organization on account of its failure to hold China responsible for unleashing the COVID-19 global pandemic. Biden’s action to reenter the WHO occurred as a team from the WHO was in China ostensibly “investigating” the origin of the ChiCom virus. In reality, it appears the team was there to boost Beijing’s propaganda as the ChiComs seek to counter growing consensus on the Wuhan lab-leak theory — that one of the province’s three bio-labs is responsible for releasing the virus.
Given the puppet strings tying the WHO to Beijing, it was predictable that the WHO team concluded it’s “extremely unlikely” that the COVID-19 virus leaked from a Wuhan lab. Ignore the fact that the WHO team spent a grand total of just three hours actually inspecting the Wuhan Institute during the nearly four weeks its members were in China. Furthermore, the team never bothered to visit the other Wuhan labs conducting bat coronavirus research. It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “nothing to see here.”
Significantly, one prominent member of the WHO team, Peter Daszak, has ties to the Chinese Communist Party that should have precluded him from even being on the team in the first place. Daszak is the president of EcoHealth Alliance, which has partnered with the Wuhan Institute of Virology — the same lab the WHO team ostensibly investigated. No conflict of interests there.
Furthermore, Daszak spoke out against the U.S. intelligence conclusion that China was the source of the novel virus, calling it “wrong on many aspects” and “politically charged” — all while he effectively acted as a spokesman for Beijing.
Not only did the WHO team seek to throw dubious cold water on the lab-leak theory, team spokesman Peter Embarek also lent tacit support for the CCP’s propaganda about the virus’s origin in some other country by saying the foreign frozen-food theory merited further study. That’s a dubious claim, and the New York Post’s Miranda Devine sarcastically responded, “Who knows? Anything is possible. Maybe a spaceship from Mars dropped off the coronavirus in Wuhan, which just happens to be the only place in China with the highest-level biosecurity lab that was experimenting on bat coronaviruses that are the closest relative to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.”
In other propaganda news, on Monday Biden sought to quietly undo another action Trump initiated to confront the CCP’s efforts to infiltrate and spread its corrupting influence inside the U.S. Biden rolled back Trump’s rule requiring universities and K-12 schools to disclose any connections they might have to China’s state-run Confucius Institutes.
Representative Michael McCaul (R-TX) blasted the move, stating, “By quietly backing away from the proposed rule without consulting Congress, the Biden administration is sending a concerning signal about its scrutiny of CCP influence in academia, and telling academic institutions that they don’t need to be transparent about their ties to China’s regime. It’s all the more disturbing because the education industry already fails to report billions of dollars of foreign gifts and contracts. I strongly urge the Biden Administration to stick to its promises to prioritize the CCP as our main national security challenge, including in the American education system.”
The real trouble is that China’s influence over Joe “Big Guy” Biden via Hunter Biden’s Beijing business ties appears to run deeper than Democrats or anyone in the mainstream media care to know or bother looking into.
