The Next Generation of Hawks!

An emerging group of up-and-coming Republican lawmakers is pushing to hold the Chinese government accountable for its nefarious campaign to influence world opinion following its failure to contain the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Like President Trump, these members of Congress are more than just talk! Meaningful proposals have been introduced not to blame the Chinese people, who are also victims of their government’s wrongdoing but instead hold Beijing accountable for decisions that hampered America’s healthcare response.

Here are the up-and-coming lawmakers standing with the old breed of China hawks, including Sens. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Tom Cotton, to hold Beijing accountable!

Congressman Banks, like the other members on this list, was still in his teens when the U.S. normalized trade relations with Beijing. Now a spritely 40 and representing Indiana’s 3rd congressional district, the Republican is calling on Attorney General Barr and Secretary of State Pompeo to bring criminal charges against Beijing through the United Nation’s International Court of Justice for its coverup.

National Review reports:

“If China’s leaders hadn’t become embarrassed by the outbreak and tried to cover up its spread, the world may have had a better chance to prepare for this or even contain it in Wuhan or China,” Banks said in a statement. “Instead, we have a pandemic. China shoulders most of that blame. Rather than succumb to the propaganda and spin of Chinese officials, the world must hold them accountable for mishandling this outbreak. If the United Nations cannot even do that, it has completely lost its purpose.”

If China successfully blocks the effort, Articles 49-51 of the UN charter could be used by the United States to suspend international obligations to Beijing, including revoking its status as a member of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

Before lobbying the Justice and State Department, Banks co-sponsored a resolution with Rep. Seth Moulton (D-MA) condemning China’s Communist Party (CCP) for its failure to proactively address the coronavirus, expel journalists, and detain one million Uighur Muslims in “re-education camps.”

California Democrat, Rep. Judy Chu, urged her caucus to oppose the resolution, citing reports of coronavirus-driven attacks on Asian Americans.

Upon her election in 2014, Stefanik became the youngest woman elected to Congress. During the impeachment inquiry against Donald Trump, the Harvard grad emerged as a critical defender of the president. The Upstate New Yorker introduced a bicameral resolution demanding a U.S.-led international investigation to determine the extent the Chinese government’s failure to take the outbreak seriously and subsequent coverup enabled the pandemic’s spread. The resolution, introduced Tuesday in the House almost simultaneously accompanied a companion resolution in the Senate from Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO).

Writing an op-ed for foxnews.com, the youngest U.S. senator demanded an international investigation into the CCP and that Beijing pays reparations for the lives lost and the economic devastation wrought by the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic.

Hawley is an outspoken critic of the World Health Organization (WHO) for its politicized response to the pathogen that has exhibited a bias in favor of China.

Reports that WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus benefited politically from the Chinese government’s backing in his 2017 election have fueled criticism of the WHO. The revelations may explain Tedros effusive praise for China’s “transparency” during this crisis.

If you look back the Democrats did not have control of Congress for the full eight years of the Obama Administration. If memory serves, the Republicans took control of the Senate in 2013 and then took over the House in 2015. So the last two years of Obama the Republicans had control of Congress.

If it happens to my family, I will sue the Chinese terrorists. Bring back to America , everything that is American? Leave General Motors there?

Exterminate Chinese leadership and their yellow Red Guard. China is big in the peoples army, and have a few good weapons, but all we are doing is letting China steal more of our Defense Weapons, to get stronger. They say they will be number one in our World by 2041. President Trump, please write the Presidential Trump Memo: I owe you and the Chinese nothing. If you think I am wrong, then come and collect the debt, and get turned to dust?
