To suggest that there is anything nefarious about the coronavirus pandemic is to risk being roundly ridiculed as a crackpot conspiracist. Still, as John Adams once said, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.” 


The coronavirus started in Wuhan, China, where the communist Chinese have a chemical weapons research facility, which houses this deadly pathogen. For weeks after its emergence, the communist government of China covered up the coronavirus outbreak, cracking down on and censoring whistleblowing physicians, like Li Wenliang, who died of the virus at the age of 34.


During the coverup, Beijing allowed Wuhan to celebrate the Chinese New Year, exposing tens of thousands to the virus. Also, during this same critical time, five million people left the city of Wuhan, consequently spreading the virus all over China, as well as all over the world. For instance, the outbreak of the coronavirus in Italy, the country currently suffering the highest fatality rate, has been traced back to invected Wuhan tourists.


When finally forced to acknowledge the obvious outbreak, China downplayed the severity of the virus and denied the risk of person to person transmission. They also, in an atrocious attempt to keep the rest of the world in the dark over Wuhan’s deadly disease, refused to cooperate with international health organizations, such as the CDC—America’s Center for Disease Control and Prevention.


Once the truth about the coronavirus became unsuppressible, due to the virus’ proliferation into a worldwide pandemic, the communist Chinese began a propaganda campaign to divert blame from themselves and to shift it to the United States. They actually and absurdly alleged that the virus had originated in American and been brought to China by the US military. A case in point is Zhao Lijian, the spokesman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, who audaciously argued that the United States owed his country, as well as the rest of the world, answers to the following questions. When did the epidemic began? How many Americans were originally infected? And how did the US Army bring the coronavirus to China?


For years, America’s pharmaceutical companies have outsourced drug manufacturing to China, in order to save enormous amounts of money on the extremely cheap labor cost of China’s exploited workers. As a result, at least 80% of America’s antibiotics are made in China, which is a frightening fact that translates into our dependency upon the communist Chinese for the drugs we need today to treat the coronavirus, along with accompanying illnesses, such as bronchitis and pneumonia.


According to a recent article in China’s state-run Xinhua news service, which prints and publishes the propaganda of the Chinese Communist Party, the Chinese government has threatened to impose restrictions on medical exports to the United States. By doing so, the article asserts, America could be “plunged into the mighty sea of coronavirus.” In response to this troubling threat, Jim Risch, the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, voiced the following vehement protest: “The Chinese government’s efforts to block or manipulate the export of life-saving pharmaceuticals and personal protective equipment in the midst of a global pandemic, which, it must be noted, originated on their soil, undermines the security of supply chains upon which we all depend.”  


The surprising revelation and unsettling realization of our drug dependency in a time of unprecedented pandemic upon the People’s Republic of China has precipitated nationwide calls for us to end this national vulnerability by returning all drug manufacturing to our own shores. Of course, this will cause drug prices to skyrocket, which in turn will make socialized medicine far more attractive to our society, especially to those within it who suddenly find themselves no longer able to afford their life-saving prescriptions.


For decades, the communist Chinese have exploited American vulnerabilities for their profit, as well as at our peril. Furthermore, they’ve done so with immunity, thanks to the intimidating upper hand they’ve gained over our kowtowing government, which has opted for cooperate profits and lower consumer prices over our country’s national security.  


With their economy struggling for the first time in years, thanks to costly tariffs on Chinese goods coming into America and tough trade negotiations with the Trump Administration, China is now exploiting the coronavirus pandemic for their own economic advantage, as well as to gain leverage over other lands. For instance, consider the following two examples. First, Chinese companies are reaping huge profits selling desperately needed protective equipment, like face masks, to nations suffering from dire shortages of these critical supplies. Second, China’s Dictator, Xi Jinping, announced to G20 leaders this past Thursday that China is increasing its manufacturing of pharmaceuticals and medical supplies under the increased demand created by their own coronavirus.


Is it possible that something villainous is behind our present-day and unprecedented coronavirus pandemic? Does it not take a nut to think so, but a naive not to? Is it really preposterous to propose that godless communists would employ pestilence to their advantage and to the disadvantage of the rest of the world? By the way, there are actually 8 different strains of coronavirus currently circling the earth. All of them, including SARS-CoV, come from China, as do other notable pestilences, such as the bird flu. In fact, a new China virus, hantavirus, was reported to have claimed the life of a man in the Chinese province of Shen Dong just last week.


It was in His famous Olivet Discourse that our Lord predicted pestilences (pandemics) would serve as one of the signs of the times, all of which serve as precursors of His Second Coming, as well as of the end of the world (Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:11). Obviously, pestilences have occurred since Christ’s time upon this earth. However, according to Christ, when the signs of the times are observed simultaneously and begin occurring more frequently, it will serve as a final signal to this fallen world of the shortest of time and of our Lord’s soon coming (Matthew 24:32-34). In light of this, our heads shouldn’t be turned too much toward China, but lifted up toward Heaven, for it certainly appears our redemption is drawing nigh (Luke 21:28)!
