Hugh Hewitt: The Next Phase in Response to the Coronavirus Challenge

Commendations to Congress—and especially Senate Majority Leader McConnell—on the massive rescue package.

America gets the message: Help is on its way.

But it’s time to do more, Congress. We need a phase four.

Phase one was the $8.3 billion measure on vaccine research.

Phase two was the bill that came from House Democrats—deeply disliked by Republicans but the Senate GOP passed it anyway.

Phase three blew the doors off the normally staid Senate, but will bring tangible help to American workers and businesses, now that it will pass.

But the country still needs a phase four. We need to respond to the purveyor of the plague: The Chinese Communist Party.

China is nearly equal to the United States in economic strength, and superior in stealth and ruthlessness.

The immediate fight is the virus. The larger, long-term battle is with a regime that allowed the virus to leave its shores.

This does not mean war. It means vigilance and deterrence.

It means phase four.

Jerry Bowyer: China and the Coronavirus

Amidst the chaos surrounding the coronavirus, it’s worth asking how it got to the point of our now global pandemic. We should not overlook or quickly move past China’s authoritarian, messianic government.

Remember—as the Wall Street Journal reported—one of the very first doctors to discover the outbreak was accused of “spreading rumors.” Another was forced to write a letter apologizing for the “negative impact” his warning had.

The Chinese government is exceptionally harsh on anyone that questions the benevolence and competence of the Communist Party.

That’s how the Chinese cult of personality works. That’s why they persecute the Church.

What kind of country would punish doctors for trying to prevent a plague? The kind that has replaced God with the state.

I’m not pre-occupied with calling it the Chinese coronavirus or the Wuhan virus. But there is no doubt that the Chinese government does bear unique culpability.

David Davenport: Coronavirus and the National Debt

What do coronavirus and the national debt have in common?  The answer is China.  Due in part to secrecy and poor management in China, suddenly the world confronts a major pandemic.  We’re reminded how interconnected our world is and how vulnerable we are to China.

Perhaps this is a reason to take the national debt more seriously.  China owns approximately 5 percent of our debt and some surprise there could have a major economic effect on the US.  It could be the next housing bubble and we are woefully unprepared.

A recent report by the Congressional Budget Office says our debt will equal 98% of the nation’s total economic output by 2030.  President Trump promised to eliminate the deficit in 8 years but what we’ve seen is a nearly 50 percent increase.

Let’s tell Washington to take the debt seriously and beware a bad surprise.
