That’s the New York Post headline, referring to COVID-19’s origins.
That conclusion is the result of new intelligence analyzed by the U.S. Department of Energy which has revealed that the COVID-19 virus likely originated in a Chinese lab in Wuhan.
Why the Energy Department, you may ask? That department supervises the nation’s nuclear weapons arsenal and maintains a network of advanced research labs around the world.
When the virus arrived, the World Military Games were underway in Wuhan, which was likely a super-spreader event. But as news of the virus emerged, the political and media establishment, and Big Tech, went into overdrive to convince us that it came from a "wet-market", not the lab.
Another clue of Covid’s origins were China’s repeated lies and efforts to concern the global market on critical medical equipment which would be needed by the entire world.
China denied any involvement in the virus' release and was backed up by both the media and World Health Organization (WHO).
Common sense suggested it came from the lab, but top medical “experts,” like Dr. Anthony Fauci and former NIH Director Francis Collins worked overtime to disprove the lab leak theory and denounced anyone who suggested it originated there.
However, it has now come to light that Fauci and Collins were working with the lab and aware of the risk posed by the its research due to terrible safety standards, but still sanctioned its funding regardless.
Anyone who questioned the “scientific consensus” was attacked as a conspiracy theorist and accused of spreading misinformation. Kudos to Jon Stewart for skewering the “consensus” crowd.
It's unsurprising then that public trust of both government and media is so low after this episode and other instances where "scientific consensus" has been used as leverage for advancing particular narratives.
