Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said the U.S. does not plan to issue any “threats or ultimatums” to China as it seeks information about the origins of COVID-19.”One track is an intelligence community assessment that President Biden ordered,” Sullivan said about the investigation. “The second track is an international investigation led by the World Health Organization, for which President Biden has rallied democratic partners to say there must be access to China, to be able to get the data necessary to understand what happened here.””We are not at this point going to issue threats or ultimatums. What we’re going to do is continue to rally support in the international community. And if it turns out that China refuses to live up to its international obligations, we will have to consider our responses at that point.””We’re not going to simply accept China saying ‘no,’ but we will work between now and when this second phase of the WHO investigation is fully underway to have as strong a consensus in the international community as possible because it is from that position of strength that we will best be able to deal with China,” he also said.

The thing about climate change go look at the front page of the Wall Street Journal, you have two wonderful stories, side-by-side, one, all prices pandemic high as investors bet on green energy, and then second Lordstown motors executives resign and made inaccurate preorder disclosures, side-by-side frontpage, Wall Street Journal, the world’s most important financial business newspaper probably the world’s important paper. Certainly, the best editorial page. Anyway, these were news reports and they tell a sad tale because the Biden’s obsession with climate change first and their left-wing ideology that global warming is an exponential threat even though the facts speak otherwise. Wall Street cash is no longer pouring into our great traditional fossil fuel energy companies. The rebound in oil and gas production is much lower and lighter than the rebound in most other sectors, check out this chart this is the Baker Hughes Rig Count, it is up from the pandemic crash lows, but it ain’t up much and a lot of that is because everyone is talking about green energy and the money is not flowing in and they aren’t tearing the switch on, that is not a v-shaped rebound.”
