The letter from a group of Republican senators landed on President Biden’s desk like a bombshell, urging him to take decisive action and slap a travel ban on China faster than you can say kung pao chicken. These GOP stalwarts are not just whistlin’ Dixie; they’re dead serious about protecting our shores from an outbreak of a “mystery illness” that’s sprouting like weeds in the PRC. And why wouldn’t they be concerned? After all, we’ve all seen how the Chinese Community Party has a penchant for playing fast and loose with the truth, especially when it comes to public health. Remember the whole COVID-19 whodunit?
Here We Go Again? There's Talk of a Travel Ban From China Over 'Mystery Illness' https://t.co/eEaMdchvUL

The senators are barking up the right tree, citing the CCP’s track record of fibbing and fibbing big time during the COVID-19 fiasco. They’re not about to roll the dice and wait for the World Health Organization, with its history of kowtowing to the CCP, to mull over the situation like a cow chewing cud. Nah, they want to slam the door shut on China faster than you can say “Great Wall.”
Sens. Marco Rubio, Rick Scott, J.D. Vance, Tommy Tuberville, and Mike Braun didn’t pen that letter just for kicks and giggles. They’re genuinely fretting over reports of a “mystery illness” flooding out of China like a busted fire hydrant since mid-October, causing chaos in hospitals and putting the kiddos in harm’s way. They want to make sure that this isn’t just a case of China crying wolf, and who can blame them? Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me, right?
To give a little more oomph to their cause, the GOP senators are even drumming up support on social media, with Sen. Rubio posting the call to action on his Twitter account. They’re not whispering sweet nothings into the wind; they’re shouting it from the rooftops, making sure the message hits home like a ton of bricks.
Sure, there are some eggheads out there, like Dr. Marty Makary from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, who reckon that the whole shebang in China is just a mishmash of ordinary infections and not some spine-tingling, brand-spankin’ new virus. But hey, better safe than sorry, right? You don’t want to be caught with your pants down and all that jazz if this “mystery illness” turns out to be the real deal. So why not play it safe and shut the door on China for a hot minute until we can get the lowdown on what’s really going on over there?
So, there you have it, folks. The GOP ain’t playing tiddlywinks here. They’re dead set on keeping our borders safe, and if that means giving China the cold shoulder for a bit, then so be it. It’s time to play it safe and keep an eye on the Far East, just in case this “mystery illness” is more than just a tempest in a teapot.
