Imagine filling a jury with co-conspirators in a crime that left four million people dead and asking them to reach an impartial verdict. That’s precisely what happened after China withheld evidence about the origins of the novel coronavirus that spread from Wuhan throughout the world. The establishment media so fiercely hated former President Donald Trump that they became willing participants in the largest cover-up in history.
Rather than investigating the discrepancies between China’s proxies that pointed to a wet market instead of a laboratory conducting gain-of-function research, they became odd bedfellows with the villains in this story. Unfortunately, it appears the seemingly good Dr. Anthony Fauci and the scientific community had a great deal to lose if the Wuhan Lab leak theory proved true.
Dr. Fauci and his virologist colleagues make money from virus research. Officials at the National Institute of Health (NIH) approved Wuhan Lab funding despite gain-of-function research being illegal in the U.S. The World Health Organization (WHO) lied about investigating the lab to curry favor with the communists. And the scientific community at large cowers in fear their funding will be slashed as public sentiment turns against them.
These are the people the dishonest media trusted over Taiwan researchers who were the first to warn the world Covid possessed powerful spreading capabilities between humans as China, the WHO, and others claimed the exact opposite. Only Trump believed America’s allies in Taiwan by implementing the first travel that the same dishonest media called “xenophobic.”
Conspiracies are rarely hatched in dimly lit backrooms by criminal masterminds. They evolve from a group of people who all stand to lose something and support each other to a bad end. Along with villains such as Fauci, who approved the Wuhan Lab funding in this loosely-knit plot that resulted in genocide, America has heroes. Kentucky Senator Rand Paul refuses to allow the responsible parties to walk away with impunity. The determined Republican dragged the truth about Fauci’s role into the light and blasted him with facts he continues to deny.
Citing a scientific paper called, “Discovery of a rich gene pool of bat SARS-related coronaviruses provides new insights into the origin of SARS coronavirus,” that details an effort to create “chimeric” coronaviruses (altered by virologists), it lists the NIH as a funding resource. The New York Post also published reports that Fauci and the NIH lined up more than $1.5 million in grant money for the China lab to conduct research Sen. Paul noted, “explicitly matches the definition of gain-of-function.”
“Knowing that it is a crime to lie to Congress…do you wish to retract your May 11 claim that the NIH never funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan,” Senator Paul asked. “When you take an animal virus, and you increase its transmissibility to humans — you’re saying that’s not gain-of-function research?”
“Senator Paul, I have never lied before the Congress, and I do not retract that statement,” Fauci reportedly answered. “This paper was judged by qualified staff up and down the chain as not being gain-of-function.”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
But the establishment and fake news media locked themselves into the false narrative crafted by Fauci, the WHO, and NIH officials because they are card-carrying Democrats. Their joint goal was to discredit the former Republican president and help their party’s nominee win the White House. They were willing to accept the propaganda of a communist regime because it supported all of their goals. Thus, they effectively became active participants in a global conspiracy.
No one sent encrypted messages or thought up secret handshakes. The fake news media, scientific community, health organization officials, and others were compliant because it served their interests. A Democrat may be sitting in the White House, Fauci may escape a prison cell, and the Chinese Communist Party will never pay reparations, but the fabric of confidence everyday people had in journalism, science, and organizations they pay to protect them has been torn to shreds.
