  • FBI found it ‘alarming’ that Fauci-funded virus research at Wuhan lab would leave no trace of ‘human manipulation’

    The FBI was tipped off in April 2020 to gain-of-function virus research in China, funded by the agency formerly headed by Dr. Anthony Fauci, that “would leave no signature of purposeful human manipulation,” emails from agents at the bureau show. “These smoking gun documents showed the FBI quickly understood that Fauci’s agency funded the gain-of-function research that could disguise the resulting coronavirus as ‘natural,’” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. In an email exchange from April 23, 2020, with the subject line “Follow up call,” a person whose name is redacted passes along details and analysis to...
  • Where Did Covid Come From?

    Wall Street Journal ^ | February 28, 2024 | Nicholas Wade
    New documents bolster the theory that it not only escaped from a laboratory but was developed in one. In the four years since the SARS-CoV-2 virus was unleashed on the world, data have steadily accumulated supporting the hypothesis that it emerged from a laboratory. The latest information, released last month, makes a formidable case that the virus is the product of laboratory synthesis, not of nature. This startling fact will probably take some time to sink into the national consciousness, given the mainstream media’s sustained inability to report the issue objectively. Editors have failed to think beyond the extreme politicization...
  • Covid-19: Do Newly Released Documents Provide a Smoking Gun for the Lab Leak Theory?

    Nicolas Wade is the former NY Times science writer who has become a major proponent of the lab leak theory. Back in May 2021 he wrote a lengthy post on Medium in which he argued that the lab leak theory was plausible despite efforts to brand it a conspiracy theory. As Wade saw it at the time, the evidence for a lab leak was very strong if not conclusive.Last month Wade returned with a piece in City Journal arguing that some newly released documents provided further evidence in support of a lab leak. Ed had the story in the headlines...

    FBI’s entire 25-person Chinese intelligence squad knew of reliable human intelligence that SARS-CoV-2 Covid leaked from a lab...Over the last several months, Public has reported on a growing body of evidence that the SARS-CoV-2 virus that caused the Covid pandemic escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China. Last year, Public and Racket were the first to report that US government officials had identified that the first patients to become sick with Covid worked at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).Now, Public has learned from multiple sources that the FBI knew since at least March 2020 that Covid was the result...

    The virus junta’s backtracking continues apace. And, in all likelihood, the hits will keep on coming. Not that anybody will do anything about it. The bureaucrats who brought you “safe and effective,” masking, school closures, shutdowns, and zoonotic emergence will keep collecting prizes, keep getting pushed as “experts” in the media, and will be treated as the heroes of the pandemic. The Establishment went all-in on using the pandemic to push its agenda of censorship, economic takeover, and retaking the government from MAGA, and they succeeded in all three. So their pandemic response was a success. Little things like the...

    Scientists at the center of the “lab leak” controversy visited Anthony Fauci’s institute at the National Institutes of Health in 2017 to discuss their research — just months before NIH lifted a pause on high-risk virology, and two years before a novel coronavirus emerged near their lab in Wuhan.Wuhan Institute of Virology Senior Scientist Shi Zhengli passed a security screening to visit National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases staffers in June 2017, where she gave a presentation about novel coronaviruses, emails obtained by U.S. Right to Know show.Shi is known internationally as the “Bat Lady” for her work with...

    The Washington Post famously ran a piece in 2020 headlined, "Tom Cotton Keeps Repeating a Coronavirus Conspiracy Theory That Was Already Debunked." That conspiracy theory was that COVID escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China that was performing gain-of-function research. Fifteen months later, the Post stealth-edited its headline to read, "Tom Cotton Keeps Repeating a Coronavirus Fringe Theory That Scientists Have Disputed."
  • Redfield warned Fauci not to 'give terrorists recipe' to modify bird flu to kill 5%-50% of infected

    Former CDC Director Robert Redfield's biggest fear for a future pandemic is a genetically manipulated bird flu, given that NIH-funded scientists in 2012 published instructions for making such a pathogen cross the "species barrier" to humans, a highly unlikely result from viral evolution. "I didn't think we needed to give terrorists a recipe" for modifying a bird flu to kill 5%-50% of people it infects, Dr. Redfield told "Just the News, No Noise," recalling his argument to then-National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci — his future antagonist on COVID origins and gain-of-function research — against publishing...
  • Is this the smoking gun for the Covid lab leak? Blueprint for creating a 'SARS-CoV' virus with an altered spike protein in Wuhan was published in 2018, bombshell new records show

    A newly-uncovered trove of documents detailing plans to create a Covid-like virus in China months before the pandemic make the 'lab leak almost certain', experts say. The records - obtained now by FOIA requests - lay out a plan to 'engineer spike proteins' to infect human cells that would then be 'inserted into SARS-Covid backbones' at the infamous Wuhan virology lab from December 2018. Just a year later, in late 2019, the Covid-19 virus emerged with a uniquely adept ability to infect humans, going on to cause a global pandemic. The proposal was made by the now-notorious EcoHealth Alliance, a...

  • A Detailed Look at the 'Proximal Origin' Paper Which Was Used to Dismiss the Coronavirus Lab Leak Theory

    Hotair ^ | 12/07/2023 | John Sexton
    I’ve seen a lot of this material before but never in such detail and concentration. This lengthy article walks though the behind the scenes machinations which led to the creation and publication of a scientific paper designed to dismiss the lab leak theory. That paper was then cited by Dr. Fauci and others as proof that COVID-19 had a natural origin (but Fauci didn’t reveal he had helped organize the effort to write the paper). What we’ve known for some time is that the academics who were recruited for this task had significant doubts about it. Again, you’ve probably seen...

    Sky News is doing the work that our own MSM refuses to do. Ever since it emerged, the origins of COVID should have been one of the top two or three stories in the world. After all, the disease itself was ravaging the world, the responses to the virus were doing even more damage, and the people in charge of responding to the virus were, at the very least, suspects in the case. Yet even discussion of the possibility of a lab leak was suppressed, and anybody who brought up the possibility was labeled a conspiracy theorist. Social media sites...

    The CIA offered hush money to six CIA analysts who concluded that Covid-19 originated from a lab in Wuhan, China, a “multi-decade, senior-level, current” CIA officer alleged to Congress. The news of the suspected payoff broke in two letters penned by the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to CIA Director William J. Burns and former CIA Chief Operating Officer Andrew Makridis. In the letter to Burns, SSCP Chairman Brad Wenstrup and HPSCI Chairman Mike Turner detail the testimony of “a highly credible senior-level CIA officer” who alleged the CIA used a...

    VIDEOIt turned out that there was only one positive outcome from Tony Blinken's recent trip to Australia. While waiting for Blinken's press conference to start an ABC (the Australian ABC, not the American ABC) foreign affairs reporter, Stephen Dziedzic, flat out admitted on hot mic that he dismissed the lab leak theory for strictly ideological reasons. Dziedzic also seemed quite irked that Sky News reporter Sharri Markson turned out to be absolutely RIGHT about the origin of COVID as due to the Wuhan lab leak. He acted as if Markson was just lucky but as Markson revealed, she did something...

    At this point, the only people who believe COVID did not leak from a Wuhan lab are diehards with I (Heart) Fauci bumper stickers. The evidence is clear: The pandemic was the result of irresponsible science. Here are 10 reasons why: 1. The “suicide” of the Wuhan lab collaborator, Dr. Yusen A key Chinese scientist who collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Dr. Zhou Yusen, filed for a patent for a COVID vaccine on February 24, 2020, according to documents obtained by The Australian. The early timing of his filing raises concerns that the unnamed vaccine was in development...

    The World Health Organization has fired a senior scientist who had a heavy role in claiming the COVID lab-leak theory was 'unlikely' over sexual misconduct accusations. The agency said Peter Ben Embarek, a Danish scientist who previously headed up its 'One Health' initiative on diseases jumping from animals to humans, was removed from his post last year. 'Peter Ben Embarek was dismissed last year following findings of sexual misconduct against him that were substantiated by investigations, and corresponding disciplinary process,' said WHO spokesperson Marcia Poole. In a statement, Ben Embarek said he contested the accusation of harassment and was challenging...

    A new comprehensive US Senate report on the origins of COVID-19 is pointing to at least two different lab leaks ultimately causing the worldwide pandemic. According to Sen. Roger Marshall (R-KS), a lack of change in operations by both the Chinese and the United States could lead to another outbreak as well.While speaking to reporters (Just the News), Marshall bemoaned the fact that gain-of-function research was being done at the Wuhan facility and noted that there’s no indication that China has changed its procedures. US money is still flowing to Chinese labs despite the communist state’s attempts to cover up...

    The U.S. government may have made duplicate payments for projects at labs in Wuhan, China, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), according to records reviewed by CBS News. "What I've found so far is evidence that points to double billing, potential theft of government funds. It is concerning, especially since it involves dangerous pathogens and risky research," said Diane Cutler, a former federal investigator with over two decades of experience combating white-collar crime and healthcare fraud. Cutler found evidence of possible double payments as she investigated U.S. government grants that supported high...
