Has there ever been an independent examination of whether the U.S. should be partnering with or funding/supporting in any way the Communist Chinese on sensitive medical research, or any research?
If not, shouldn't that happen?
Such an inquiry cannot be done by the conflicted parties already involved in such controversial research, meaning the U.S. government, National Institute of Health, etc.
Why wasn't this done a year and a half ago, with public accountability?

I am a retired immunologist who very much appreciates the international community of science and its collaborative nature. We offer training to many international scientists. But in light of this pandemic we need to stop funding at the very least with Chinese science establishment. They are not free from government coercion. Period.
We should be, and should have, partnered with India, who loves America and freedom and liberty, rather than propping up a corrupt totalitarian regime. Had we done so, the advatages to us today would have been greater than those gained by partnering with nations whose values we know justify the weponization of the very knowledge gained through collaborative research with the U.S.
Some history—to clarify how we got here :
Chinese Tortoise Passes Russian Hare
Threaten Western Hegemony
The character, temperament, and intelligence of any homogeneous people are genetic-based and uniform, and mostly unaffected by influences outside natural evolution. You need only study China’s history to exactly predict her future; unlike the unpredictability of the Western mind with its inherent penchant to try this and that and radically alter its course---a mind at once trusting and fearful in its willingness to send advanced technology to an enemy. Yes, China is an enemy of the United States.
The ancient and deep psychological character of China is feminine, collectivist, and inward-looking---until she wakes from her deep introversion. Communism suits her nature well (there is no word in Chinese dialects for “private.” The closest term for describing the idea means “loneliness”). Her experiment with capitalism is only means to an end: expansionism. Tibet is a “good” first step, then Hong Kong (which the West is handing to her), and then Taiwan and strategic interests across the Russian border.
China is a stretching Titan, rubbing the scales of slumber from her eyes before swallowing her neighbors. Russia might stop China when she marches, if it can momentarily abandon its Balkanization to meet the challenge.
Many pundits think that that’s an absurd evaluation, but when her massive war machine begins to march they’ll be apologizing for their naiveté.
China only toys with the West’s cultural proclivities; she’s not adopting Western values or its economic freedoms---only temporarily using them as means to strengthen her military. China is a communist nation; it won’t abandon what suits its people’s character and leadership quite well.
The domination of the emoting feminine mind over the rational masculine mind in the West explains why America’s leaders can’t see the coming end to the American Experiment---or China’s eventual, despotic influence on the world.
I pray my conclusions are wrong.
From my 1999 essay, “Why Wall Street Capitalists Hate Families and Nationhood” :
"Why would 'American' businessmen care whether you and your family are safe from Chinese nuclear rockets? They don't, which is why American merchants McDonnell Douglas, Hughes Electronics and Loral Space and Communications betrayed their nation for profit, as Lenin predicted: ‘ The capitalists of the whole world and their governments will close their eyes on the kinds of [grim and unscrupulous] activities I have described and will become blind as well as deaf-mutes. They will extend loans which will provide us with the equipment and technology we lack and will thus help rebuild our military industry, which we need to launch subsequent victorious attacks against our suppliers. In other words, the capitalist nations will always work to prepare their own suicide. '"
Update to my above essay,
RT-D of October 20, 2010,
China halts shipping
key minerals to U.S.
which has been blocking
shipments of crucial minerals
to Japan for the past month,
now has halted shipments of
some of those same materials
to the United States and Eu-
rope, The New York Times
China mines 95 percent of
the world’s rare earth ele-
ments, which have broad
commercial and military ap-
plications and are vital to the
manufacture of diverse prod-
ucts including large wind tur-
bines and guided missles.
- MFN Status For Communist China? -
Nix MFN for China
What does it profit a nation to gain all the world's markets but lose its soul - its founding culture?
Let's not work to prepare our own suicide, as Lenin foretold the West would do in his 1921 prediction:
"The capitalists of the whole world and their governments will close their
eyes on the kinds of [grim and unscrupulous] activities I have described and will become blind as well as deaf-mutes. They will extend loans which will provide us with the equipment and technology we lack and will thus help rebuild our military industry, which we need to launch subsequent victorious attacks against our suppliers. In other words, the capitalist nations will always work to prepare their own suicide."
Lenin's prediction nearly came true but for
the Soviet Union's own mismanagement of
her internal affairs. The West won't be as
lucky dealing with the Chinese, who hold a
5- or 7-point IQ advantage over white
The Chinese feign the injured and backward party—whenever gross disparities in trade and human rights are brought to the table, being extremely clever like a fox to keep their advantage by playing Western politicians (( and immoral/unpatriotic American capitalists who unscrupulously build-up Red China to fight the U.S. in a future war )) for the short-sighted fools that they are.
But the Chinese mostly have willing accomplices in the West--those vulture capitalists, those traitors, especially Jew billionaires like Soros and Bronfman, whose greedy profit-taking help supply China with the technology and social infrastructure so necessary for communists to continue their long march toward world domination.
It doesn't help us to have Marxist/socialist/feminists running the White House and our federal agencies. HUD, DoD, the State Department, Pentagon and others are overrun with Marxist agents and sympathizers. And it doesn't help us to have greed-smitten House and Senate members who are unresponsive to the wishes of the majority in this purported democracy, and who grovel at the feet of capitalists (and now foreign governments) helping to keep them in political office.
What a tragic joke on every decent, law-abiding American citizen. This isn't a democratic republic but an oligarchy of corrupt and powerful men.
If the Founders were alive today to witness what these s o n s of i m m i g r a n t s have done to their nation, America would be a bloody battleground right now.
Communism - Marxist/socialist/feminism - is not dead. It's alive and well in the heart and mind of every left-winger in America. Deny MFN status for Communist China on the principle of honoring human rights alone, if not for the gross trade imbalance, then for the sake of America's long-term future and her very soul.
Think about what utter insanity it is to help construct the means for our own suicide. But short-term profit-taking and long-term investment in a foreign nation inimical to the values of our founding culture is such an attractive way to make a buck. Right?
That's what drives unethical American capitalists to risk putting their own nation in jeopardy--greedy profiteering and lack of any patriotic concern for the nation and culture that gave rise to their business interests.
Thomas Jefferson said this about them: "Merchants have no country. The mere spot they stand on does not constitute so strong an attachment as that from which they draw their gains."
What does it profit a nation to gain all the world's markets but lose its soul--its founding culture?
Nix MFN for China!
