This article would apply to any American president from either Party. It is about more than tariffs, more than trying to bring back US corporations from foreign lands. It’s about more than politics.
It’s about a subject every American is intensely interested in: personal health. And the overt poisoning of health.
And the president would announce, on global television:
“Do you think we should permit poisons to be imported into this country? I don’t. I’m talking about poisons that make people sick and kill them. For decades we have been allowing these poisons to come here, from China, AND THIS STOPS NOW. We will amp up our level of testing for all food products, medicines, vaccines, and other imports, AND THOSE WE FIND CONTAMINATED WE WILL SEND BACK TO CHINA AND REFUSE TO PAY FOR. AND IF THEY TRY TO SLIP THOSE PRODUCTS BACK INTO THE US THROUGH ANOTHER COMPANY WITH ANOTHER NAME, WE WILL BURN THE WHOLE SHIPMENT. IF AMERICANS CARE ABOUT THEIR HEALTH AND THE HEALTH OF THEIR CHILDREN, THEY WILL BACK ME UP TO THE HILT ON THIS. SOME PEOPLE WILL SAY I’M GRANDSTANDING. CALL IT WHAT YOU WANT TO. I’M PROTECTING THE LIVES OF PEOPLE FROM POISONING.”
At Natural News, Mike Adams recently wrote: “At my laboratory (CWC Labs), we’ve used mass spectrometry instrumentation to study lead exposure for the last six years… Over the years, we’ve…found high levels of lead and other metals in rice protein from China, which is grown in heavily polluted irrigation water that’s contaminated with industrial runoff from China’s factories… Thanks to the complete lack of environmental enforcement in industrial countries like China, lead pollution is spread around the world via air currents. China’s pollution becomes America’s soils contamination, and China does nothing to reduce emissions of toxic heavy metals and other substances. China is a cesspool of filth, corruption and pollution, and the food and supplement products manufactured in China are very often heavily contaminated as a result. (Yet somehow, all the ‘environmentalists’ in America never demand China take any action whatsoever to reduce its own pollution.)”
Reuters (2/18/19): “Major Chinese frozen food producer Sanquan Food Co Ltd said on Monday it has recalled products that may be contaminated with African swine fever, following media reports that some of its dumplings tested positive for the virus.”
Quartz (7/16/18): “…infant milk tragedy…a growing national disaster that would take the lives of six infants and sicken more than 300,000 babies…the [Chinese] national standards didn’t require testing for melamine [an industrial chemical]—no one had anticipated that milk producers would doctor their supplies with the chemical…the excessive use of pesticides and fertilizers in the 1980s…which has contaminated farmland, and could be transferred to cows that eat that grass. The government has only just started to tackle the problem …”
2019—Tainted blood plasma scandal…use of expired polio vaccine…
2018—Valsartan, a blood pressure medicine manufactured in China, is recalled by the FDA in the US, because it might contain carcinogenic material…
And so forth and so on. And so on.
You could ask the question this way: why can’t the US president try to protect the health and lives of Americans and stop imports of poisons? A better statement: if US health agencies are failing in their duties, the president MUST step forward and take drastic action.
This isn’t politics. This is LIFE on the line.
Or you could take a novel approach: “Let’s all be nice and polite and passive and try to pretend there is no problem.”
Some readers will reflexively ask, “What about pollution and contamination produced right here in America?” Yes, I’ve been writing about that for the past 35 years. This piece happens to be about CHINA.
The major reason Trump is missing this vital point vis-a-via China is: for him, the business of America is business, period. That’s called a blind spot. Another name for it is willful ignorance. Trump is far from the only one. It’s the same for all US presidents before him who have entered into trade deals with China. None of them have zeroed in on the overwhelming fact that Americans have been the end-users of contaminated and poisoned products. On the scale of importance, that fact has been pushed far down on the list of concerns.
