Sessions: ‘Godless communist Chinese government’ lied about coronavirus — ‘Evil regime’

Former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday morning released a scathing statement bashing the governing regime of the People’s Republic of China for its role in sparking the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Sessions’ statement accompanied an announcement that he would incrementally over the coming weeks be unveiling a proposed strategic plan for the United States to confront the communist leadership of China.

The plan is entitled, “Betting on America: Standing up to China’s cold-blooded drive for power.” Sessions, a 2020 candidate for the U.S. Senate seat he formerly held, stressed that he has warned of the dangers inherent in a weak American strategy toward China, including the military, diplomatic, economic and personal security threat posed by the adversarial regime.

Sessions to begin stated, “The Coronavirus pandemic makes clear how deceitful, brutal, and ruthless the godless communist Chinese government is. They lied about the disease, covered it up, suppressed and imprisoned truth-tellers, and outrageously suggested the Chinese virus was an American conspiracy. This is an evil regime, plain and simple.”

“To be clear, the adversary here is the action of the Chinese Communist Party, not the people of China,” he continued.

Remainder of Sessions’ statement as follows:

The Coronavirus pandemic makes clear how deceitful, brutal, and ruthless the godless communist Chinese government is. They lied about the disease, covered it up, suppressed and imprisoned truth-tellers, and outrageously suggested the Chinese virus was an American conspiracy. This is an evil regime, plain and simple. To be clear, the adversary here is the action of the Chinese Communist Party, not the people of China.

America must now fundamentally reset our relationship with China. This is no time for half-measures or a slap on the wrist. This Chinese-made global health crisis should be a wake-up call. China is lying and people are dying. Enough is enough.

Our real objective must be to obliterate America’s dependence on China. And make no mistake, we have become dependent on this ruthless communist Chinese government. For too long, big business elites in Washington and on Wall Street have cozied up to the Chinese because it made them rich, while thousands of Americans lost their jobs. This. Must. Stop.

I’ve been fighting to hold China accountable; often, it has been a very lonely fight. But now, anyone who believes that this global pandemic, and possible global recession, is not the fault of the communist Chinese government is either completely ignorant of the facts, or is willfully and purposefully perpetuating a lie.

The world has now seen clearly how this communist regime has blatantly lied on a great matter of life and death. But now we must also focus resolutely on their openly announced plan for economic growth and military domination that is also being advanced by lies, theft, and cheating. The days of giving the communist Chinese government a free pass are over.

Sessions is set to roll out the first plank of his plan on Wednesday.
