Missouri Throws The First Punch


Missouri threw the first punch in the fight to hold China accountable for their actions that led to this pandemic. The state of Missouri filed a lawsuit against China, on Tuesday, seeking damages for the “enormous loss of life, human suffering, and economic turmoil” this pandemic has caused.

Missouri explains that it’s not just the people who have gotten sick and the people who have died from the Coronavirus but the billions of dollars it has cost the state as well.

“In Missouri, the impact of the virus is very real – thousands have been infected and many have died, families have been separated from dying loved ones, small businesses are shuttering their doors, and those living paycheck to paycheck are struggling to put food on their table,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in a statement.

According to Fox News, that cost is estimated to be around $44 billion.

The state of Missouri is wanting financial reparations but it's not stopping there. They also hope the lawsuit will spur more investigation into the activities of the communist regime in the early days of this virus. China has been very quiet and deceptive with regards to real numbers and origin of the virus.

Fox News has reported that sources have increasing confidence that the coronavirus escaped from a Wuhan laboratory, not as a bioweapon but as part of China's attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States.

This claim remains up in the air as some U.S. officials dispute that theory.

However, also noted in the lawsuit is an accusation that China withheld and hoarded PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) from the world's healthcare workers. Much of the PPE that China sent around the world was defective as were many of the tests. China sold them back to the countries that, in some situations, had donated them to China in the first place.

Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, has led the way in Congress by introducing legislation that would make it easier for U.S. citizens to sue China over this pandemic.

  1. Didn’t China just admit that fatalities in Wuhan were under reported by 50%? If you believe the 50% number you’re delusional. Reports on the ground by Wuhan residents have stated that the crematoriums have been running 24/7 for months. That doesn’t jive with the total deaths as reported by the politburo:

  2. The whole world should not only condemn China, but indebt them for billions of dollars in reparations. Their deliberate cover up, and hoarding has not only endangered folks all over the world, but has caused death and mayhem. Make them pay!

  3. Dangerous ground.

    What would then happen if all the countries on the planet, which were victims of hegemony, all decided to sue the US, UK, Spain, Portugal, France, Russia, etc. Where would it end?

    The bottom line here seems to be, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”

  4. China should be made to relinquish ALL of its holdings in the United States including the real estate and public land illegally acquired during the Obama and other administrations.

  5. The best place to hit China, where we actually can do some good, is in the pocketbook. Mo. maybe should ban the sales of everything made in china in that state. The filing of a lawsuit whereas it is a good gesture, it will ultimately lead to nothing. Banning sales of chinese goods will hit them harder than a lawsuit. I am glad to see Mo. act because I grew up in southeast Mo. but I like the strategy of hitting them where it hurts. Ding-a-ling Ping will just ignore this lawsuit.

  6. They should also check to see how the Muslim usurper aided and abetted the Chicoms with millions of our tax dollars. He has culpability in the Dempanic.

  7. Way back in the days before the Wuhan plague was unleashed, economists spoke of “deficit spending,” and “national debt.” Remember those days? One of the points made was that China never did pay their debt from the days of the Boxer Rebellion. Instead, the NEW Chinese government — communist — renounced it. But refusal to pay or not, it remains on the books and, with interest, keeps growing. It was estimated a few years ago that it was equivalent to the debt the US owes China. In other words, a wash! Fine. Tit-for-tat. That means the assets they currently have in the US can be seized by creditors if they are found guilty of causing this plague in the first place.
