Conservative columnist and East Asian expert Gordon Chang joined the “Sara Carter Show” podcast Thursday to discuss the latest developments on the Chinese Communist Party and its potential to start a war.
Chang warned that the Biden administration is taking steps in the wrong direction that may cause dangerous implications for the U.S.
“[The Biden administration] says we should cooperate with China on COVID-19. They want to rejoin the World Health Organization, these are the steps in the absolute wrong direction,” Chang tells Carter.
“This was deliberate, that means this was mass murder. And that has all sorts of implications that the Biden administration is not willing to consider.”
“China is developing pathogens that will leave the Chinese alone, but will attack foreigners. So that means the next disease from China could very well be something that kills civilizations outside China. And this shows you the maliciousness of the Chinese regime,” he continued.
Chang also warned that Xi Jinping, the head of the CCP, may cause another deadly attack.
“If we don’t impose costs on China for deliberately spreading this disease. Xi Jinping will just naturally think that he can do this again,” Chang said.
“We’re giving incentives to China, because we’re supporting the World Health Organization, which China controls, because we know that the way that China got its false narrative out to the world, was a January 9 statement, and a January 14 tweet from the World Health Organization, propagating the false narrative that COVID-19 was not readily transmissible from one human to the next. This was when WHO senior doctors knew that it was highly contagious, but their views were completely shut out by the political leadership of WHO and Biden has just agreed to shovel hundreds of millions of dollars a year to those people who were complicit in attack that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of 1000s of Americans.”
Carter agreed with Chang that the CCP is trying to see how far they can push the Biden administration and asked him if he is concerned about Taiwan and India.
On Jan. 23, the Chinese military flew a large number of warplanes, including nuclear-capable H-6K bombers and fighter jets, to practice a run against the Theodore Roosevelt Carrier Strike Group.
“Which means that China was practicing attacks on us,” Chang explained.
“We don’t know where they’ll strike next, but we do know It’ll be against our friends and allies. And we need to meet them there. Because if we don’t, we’re gonna be fighting them over here.”
Gordon’s book, The Coming Collapse of China, explains why he believes the CCP will not be able to sustain its behavior for much longer.
“Right now, although China looks pretty fearsome, its economy is barely growing, if it’s growing at all,” Chang said. “It’s got a demographic collapse on the horizon. And Chinese leaders, we know from their propaganda, are seeing a closing window of opportunity. We know they’re arrogant, we know they’re insecure. We know they think they can push Biden around. They believe that they got to do this quickly.”
“We’ve got to worry about China now, because this is the critical time where China thinks it does have maybe the last chance to accomplish the historic objectives,” Chang warned.
“We know that China is effective. We know that they’re malicious, we know that they can accomplish their goals. And that means our country’s at risk.”

China Says It’s Ready for Monkeypox and the West Isn’t
As the Western press is becoming more and more concerned with monkeypox outbreaks, a recent bombshell report shows that Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) in China manipulated monkeypox to be more contagious in humans. This follows more evidence that the WIV had been experimenting with bat coronaviruses to increasingly infect humans.
But rather than agree to an honest investigation into the WIV and its role in spreading contagion around the world, China is once again trying to sell us an alternative reality. According to Chinese state-run media, it is China that is once again poised to be humanity’s savior and darling when it comes to fighting monkeypox, much like COVID-19. Not only that, but CCP press reporting shows evidence of China having an eerily well advanced infrastructure and gameplan to fight monkeypox. The West in contrast is not prepared, according to China.
Claim #1: China has the Wisdom to Fight Monkeypox
First, Chinese state-run media portray China as in a good position to combat monkeypox due to wisdom gleaned from combating COVID-19 and smallpox. One Global Times article noted that “[i]n the very early stage of the COVID-19 pandemic, China has taken the measures of ‘early identification, reporting, isolation, diagnosis and treatment.’ Under such guidance, China has become one of the most successful countries in the COVID fight.” Another Global Times article cites a World Health Organization official as stating that “China’s COVID-19 control measures in place and largely reduced international arrivals minimize the risks of contagion in China.” A third Global Times article, citing “experts,” claims that “China’s successful experience in eliminating smallpox would also help the country act if monkeypox enters China’s borders…”
Claim #2: Chinese Healthcare Infrastructure Is Well Prepared to Deal with Monkeypox
China is well ahead of the game in dealing with monkeypox, according to Chinese state-run media. Chinese experts “suggest preparation of testing and treatment capacities in advance” to proactively combat monkeypox, according to Global Times. And “drug research should start early so that China can still control [monkeypox] should it assume pandemic proportions,” according to China Daily.
China is apparently quite far along in this “preparation” and “research.”
There are “several” Chinese manufacturers that have already made monkeypox nucleic acid test kits, and that these “can be quickly put into mass production and on the domestic market once approved by the government,” according to a second Global Times article. This article also states that Chinese manufacturer Liferiver Bio-Tech has a nucleic acid test that has already been ordered in China and abroad.
This same article also states that vaccine development faces “no technological problems” and a vaccine can be produced in China in a year if China’s drug administration administers “a rapid special review.” China’s CDC also has already stockpiled “millions” of doses of smallpox vaccine, produced “an emergency response technical plan on monkeypox, stocked monkeypox detection reagents, and conducted training on monkeypox nucleic acid PCR testing for provincial and municipal CDC professionals.”
Mirroring its earlier “mask diplomacy” for COVID-19, it looks like China is beginning to export its healthcare to the world to help combat monkeypox. China’s Sansure Biotech is ready to register its nucleic acid test kit for monkeypox abroad, according to Global Times. And Jiangsu Bioperfectus Technologies has already has its Monkeypox Virus Real Time PCR Kits in the international market, according to Global Times.
Claim #3: The West is Ill-Equipped to Handle Monkeypox
On the other hand, Chinese media portrays the West as ill-equipped to handle monkeypox. For example, according to one Global Times editorial, “[t]he COVID pandemic that killed more than 1 million people in the US has given a tragic lesson to the US and the West, but it still remains to be seen to what extent the US and the West learned from it.” The West’s “conspiracy theories” and “panic” contributed to the “Western countries’ poor response to COVID-19.” That CCP editorial also pontificates that “[i]t is hoped that Western countries hit by monkeypox can do a good job in responding to the outbreak. They should not misjudge the virus with outdated perceptions…”
Claim #4: Current Monkeypox spread originated from outside China
Chinese media avoids the possibility that this current monkeypox outbreak could have originated in China. One Global Times article claims that there have been no cases of monkeypox reported in China, and that China faces a threat from monkeypox due to the cases being “outside known epidemic areas of Africa.” The fact that many countries have now lifted bans against international travel is the culprit for increased risk of monkeypox transmission, according to anonymous source within the Chinese CDC as mentioned in that same article. Another Global Times article stated that China could quarantine inbound international travellers “if necessary.”
The CCP propaganda machine is at it again. Much like it tries to portray itself as a leader in fighting COVID-19, China is beginning to run a similar propaganda campaign for monkeypox. China is using COVID-19, and increasingly now monkeypox, as vehicles to curry favor and deflect responsibility for spreading contagion around the world, and to grow markets for healthcare technology and supplies.
