China Lied, People Died--Pelosi Denies

"For six key days," Associated Press reports, "China didn't warn the public of a likely pandemic."

By the seventh day, the week of silence and cover-up had given birth to a deadly worldwide coronavirus pandemic, that continues to visit death on people around the globe.

This while Speaker Pelosi carried on her personal agenda to destroy the presidency of a man she claims to pray for--- while seeking to destroy him.

And now refuses to speak to him.

This week, she warned Americans to "ignore the lies, insist on the truth."

Let's do it.

Be informed.

"Deliver my soul, O Lord, from lying lips and from a deceitful tongue" (Ps. 120:2).

Deception is the hallmark of the human race. The first two people to ever exist on planet earth were deceived---not with a statement, but with a question---"Surely you won't die...?" "Did God really say...?"

According to the Associated Press:
"In the six days after top Chinese officials secretly determined they likely were facing a pandemic from a new coronavirus, the city of Wuhan at the epicenter of the disease hosted a mass banquet for tens of thousands of people; millions began traveling through for Lunar New Year celebrations."

After a week of silence, President Xi Jinping warned the public on the seventh day, AP says, but by that time more than 3000 people had been infected during the week of silence.

They note that the delay from January 14 to January 20 "was neither the first mistake made by Chinese officials at all levels in confronting the outbreak nor the longest lag, as governments around the world have dragged their feet for weeks and even months in addressing the virus."

In fairness, AP also notes how China continued to attempt to cover up what was really happening--
"But what is clear, experts say, is that China's rigid controls on information, bureaucratic hurdles and a reluctance to send bad news up the chain of command muffled early warnings. the punishment of eight doctors for 'rumor mongering' broadcast of national television on Jan. 2, sent a chill through the city's hospitals."

Associated Press is long and deep on specifics in their report and timeline, but unable to actually admit China lied. Everybody now knows it, but AP can't say it out loud.

As I read the AP story, I knew there would be a pivot paragraph somewhere.

Here it is:

"The delay may support accusations by President Donald Trump that the Chinese government's secrecy held back the world's response to the virus. However, even the public announcement on Jan, 20 left the US nearly two months to prepare for the pandemic."

AP continues,
"During those months, Trump ignored the warnings of his own staff and dismissed the disease as nothing to worry about, while the government failed to bolster medical supplies and deployed flawed testing kits."

What AP chooses not to tell the public is that Trump immediately contracted two of the most well known, well informed, highly respected infectious disease experts in the world. Dr. Fauci and Dr. Brix.

Fauci, as we've heard, has served every US president since Ronald Reagan. He's recognized as the best.

However, on January 21, Dr. Fauci was also "dismissing" the disease. He told Newsmax's Greg Kelly:
"This is not a major threat to the people of the United States and this is not something that the citizens of the United States should be worried about right now."

AP also chose not to tell you that this administration was not passing out ventilators, masks, and other pandemic equipment because the two previous administrations---Bush and Obama---had used up our government's stockpile of resources and not replaced them even though Congress had allocated the money.

And the testing system was decades old and incapable of testing more than a dozen or two people at a time and the accuracy was questionable.

What Associated Press also chose not to include in their evaluation of the President is that Nancy Pelosi was focusing the full force of the United States government on impeaching President Trump. Something her political party has been calling for since the day he was inaugurated as President.


"Whoever conceals hatred with lying lips and spreads slander is a fool" (Proverbs 10:18).

While President Trump was giving his daily press briefing on the Chinese virus Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who is on recess speaking from her home, issued a stark warning for Americans "to ignore lies" and "insist on the truth."

In a letter sent to the House Democrats, she said, "There are important decisions ahead. But if we are not working from the truth, more lives will be lost, economic hardship and suffering will be extended unnecessarily."

She said, "The president ignored early warnings about the virus and took insufficient action that caused unnecessary death and disaster. Because of his incompetent reaction, the economy is now a disaster."

Then she wrote this:
"The truth is a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility."

She then demonstrated that statement by blaming Trump for everything she perceives to be wrong in America.

It was a stunning missive from the San Francisco Democrat, who claims to "pray for the President and his family every day" while exerting every possible political tool available to destroy him.

She wrote: "The truth is, from this moment on, Americans must ignore lies and start to listen to scientists and other respected professionals in order to protect ourselves and our loved ones."

Then she made this prophetic utterance:
"Our future will be healthy and prosperous if we no longer tolerate lies and deceit."

I totally agree. A statement on her and Mr. Biden will be forthcoming on election day 2020.

She then reminded them that Congress will be all but shuttered until May 4.

"Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but whoever takes crooked paths will be found out" (Proverbs 10:9).

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.
