America wasn’t invaded by a standing army. But the invisible SARS-CoV-2 virus spread during the Covid-19 pandemic has provided the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) with the means to carry out a global invasion with its communist ideas. China’s totalitarian ideology is embodied by its Covid Zero policy.
Beijing, the capital city of China, is a sprawling metropolis with a population of over 20 million. Its imperial palace stands as a foreboding complex at the heart of the Forbidden City. The CCP that now dominates the nation of 1.4 billion people runs its sophisticated network of mass surveillance and a global intelligence network from this once-majestic urban center.
It is now the site of a never-ending nightmare being imposed on the Chinese people under the aegis of ‘fighting Covid.’ Once praised as a paragon of pandemic response, China’s interminable lockdowns have failed to snuff out an endemic virus whose contagion has led to near-universal human exposure. The novel coronavirus has access to animal reservoirs, making it virtually ineradicable. China is not ‘ending Covid,’ it is ‘ending human freedom.’
China is now carrying out the world’s largest social experiment on over a billion people. Its Covid lockdowns have been followed by a brief lifting of lockdowns only to be followed by more lockdowns — a classic psychosocial method of breaking a people’s will. The CCP’s aim is nothing less than a technocratically administered and bureaucratically managed totalitarian state without a semblance of human resistance.
In the United States, there is its own creeping form of totalitarianism, which is culturally imposed by mainstream media propagandists and big tech’s censorious thought police. But in this socialist hothouse environment, there is a refreshing but harrowing glimpse at Beijing’s repressive police state tactics provided by an unlikely source: CNN.
On Tuesday, CNN International Correspondent Selina Wang reported on the scene in Beijing to show Americans their future should it continue down Washington D.C.’s primrose path to socialism unopposed.

The CNN reporter notes that nearly all public life in Beijing has come to a grinding halt over a few dozen cases.
“Life in Beijing: relentless covid testing & health app that dictates where I go,” Wang wrote on Twitter. “Green code is needed to enter public areas. Red means quarantine/isolation. Authorities track people’s movements thru these apps. Concern is this surveillance will stay long after covid is gone.”
The interminable Covid ’emergency’ in China is reminiscent of the U.S. Democratic Party’s aim to extend the Covid ’emergency’ past the midterm elections for no other reason than pure politics. The Biden administration not only seeks to extend this Covid ’emergency’ despite nearly total seroprevalance (‘natural immunity’) in the U.S. population, it has also declared a ‘national health emergency‘ over a monkeypox virus that has caused no known deaths in the United States and fewer than ten worldwide.
This endless state of emergency is a political maneuver to do an end-around the U.S. Constitution. This tactic is a hallmark of fascism. The Covid ’emergency’ response led to billions in funding for Big Pharma companies with no public or legal accountability. It is similar in political rationale to declaring an alleged ‘climate emergency,’ accompanied by hundreds of billions in green slush funding for Democratic Party allies, in order to envelop Americans in endless environmental regulations that restrict their energy usage and limit their internal transportation.
Once praised as an exemplar for the world to follow, China’s Covid Zero policy garnered accolades throughout the U.S. press for its purported ability to stop the spread. This sycophantic coverage was not only devoid of any basis in reality, it is the height of irony given that China is responsible for fueling the spread of the virus to begin with.
China’s track record suggests that it didn’t know for mere weeks that a Covid outbreak was coming, its behavior is indicative that it may have known for several months ahead of time that a ‘lab leak’ was bound to happen.
The CCP began amassing the PCR tests that would become prevalent throughout the Covid pandemic as early as May 2019. Wuhan hosted military games in October 2019 that became one of the earliest super spreader events.
“Within a month, satellite images show a significant uptick in the number of people at hospitals around the WIV with symptoms similar to COVID-19,” Rep. Michael McFaul said about a House GOP report. “At the same time, athletes at the Military World Games became sick with symptoms similar to COVID-19. Some of them carried the virus back to their home countries — creating one of the earliest super spreader events in the world, and explaining how countries who participated in the games had reported cases as early as November 2019.”
The GOP report said its lab leak evidence included “athletes at the Military World Games held in Wuhan in October 2019 who became sick with symptoms similar to COVID-19 both while in Wuhan and also shortly after.”
It is not the only evidence, however, that China knew that SARS-CoV-2 had the potential to spread into a deadly pandemic, but nonetheless kept that information secret from the world.
“As early as the second week of December, it was clear that this virus was spreading from person to person. By late December, it was spreading to doctors in Wuhan hospitals. Some doctors were trying to blow the whistle on these facts, and the secret police arrived at their doorsteps in the middle of the night,” Sen. Tom Cotton said in April 2021.
“So only after China fessed up to the WHO on December 31 did the world know what was happening. Yet, still they continued to deny that it was spreading from person to person into mid-January. That allowed millions of people to leave Wuhan,” Cotton continued. “And then, finally, China continued to pressure the WHO and other countries not to stop international travel from China. That meant that hundreds of thousands of persons left China after this virus was spread far outside of Wuhan, which allowed the virus to escape China’s borders and get to the United States and get to Europe and get to essentially every country in the world.”
“I believe that was a deliberate and conscious choice by the Chinese communist leadership, because they didn’t want to see their relative power and standing in the world decline because this virus was contained within China,” Cotton added. “Again, it was obvious by mid-December to Chinese authorities that this virus was highly contagious and very deadly.”
The PCR tests being purchased in droves by CDC buyers in May – and more ominously, by the People’s Liberation Army – suggests that the CCP was fully aware of what was going on with Covid all along.
In June 2021, explosive new reports based on intelligence sources indicated that the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s “gain of function” research was linked to “secret military activity,” which ultimately culminated in an improbably early COVID-19 vaccine patent.
Instead of China being shunned as a global pariah, Beijing was rewarded with the 2022 Winter Olympic games. It is now home to a communist dystopia that is tormenting its people with endless lockdowns, mass surveillance, and starvation conditions.
The Democratic Party’s lack of condemnation for China’s actions speaks volumes about its intentions for the American people. It is time for people to take a hard look at the conditions in communist China and ask themselves a serious question: If the Democratic Party were given authority similar to the Chinese Communist Party, would it do anything different?
