It was an inevitable discovery. People within the US government made a concerted effort to suppress data on the origin of COVID-19. Tucker Carlson brings us the details.
Carlson: "Fifteen months ago, a group of Chinese scientists, working on the ground at the scene of the outbreak of a brand new virus, came to the conclusion that the novel coronavirus probably escaped from a government lab in Wuhan. They said so in the clearest possible terms, and then posted it on the internet. From our perspective, this struck us as an amazing and important story, and also, by the way, completely plausible. We expected a flurry of media interest in it. Where did this virus come from? That seemed worth knowing as people were dying of it. But no one asked the question. Instead, there was silence, punctuated only by occasional smirking about anti-Asian racism and conspiracy theories.
That's where it stood for more than a year, until just a few weeks ago. Then suddenly, for reasons we still don't really understand, all the smirking morons in the American news media changed their view completely, overnight.
Of course, COVID escaped from a Chinese virology lab. Duh. Did you really think it came from the wet market? Come on. That was the new consensus. An avalanche of evidence followed. The Wall Street Journal confirmed that the first COVID victims seem to have been researchers working with bat viruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. BuzzFeed obtained thousands of emails showing that Tony Fauci knew from the beginning that COVID may have been manufactured in China in dangerous experiments he helped pay for. The lab leak theory, it turns out, was never crazy. It was always likely true.
So why did they lie to us about it for so long? A shocking new piece in, of all places, the celebrity suck-up magazine Vanity Fair, answers that question in great detail. You should read it. In short, many research scientists are addicted to tax dollars. If the public understood just how recklessly they've behaved - endangering the entire world with their weird little experiments in poorly relegated labs in China - the money might dry up. As a former NSC official called Jamie Metzl put it, 'If the pandemic started as part of a lab leak, it had the potential to do to virology what Three Mile Island and Chernobyl did to nuclear science.'
...Vanity Fair obtained a memo from Thomas DiNanno, then the acting assistant secretary of the State Department's arms-control bureau. In the memo, DiNanno wrote that staff from two State Department bureaus had warned leaders within his bureau quote 'not to pursue an investigation into the origin of COVID-19' because it would 'open a can of worms.'
These are Americans working to hide the truth of the origin of COVID-19 from a country that's been destroyed by COVID-19. You can't prevent outbreaks unless you know where they came from, and yet federal bureaucrats prevented us from learning where this one came from."
