Why is the Wuhan Lab Leak Story Recirculating Now? (Part 1)

I am having a deja vu moment.

Three years ago, the COVID-19 Wuhan lab leak story was a fringe theory and labeled disinformation. Those of us who spoke out early into this Plandemic, including me, were vilified and punished for questioning the narrative and marveling at the fact the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) is coincidentally only two miles from the wet market. That laboratory is the only declared site in China capable of working with deadly viruses. The WIV has existed for decades; its Wikipedia page lists its formation year as 1956.

“We were banned from social media for talking about the possibility of a Wuhan lab leak,” Ben Shapiro recently remarked. “We were chastised by the fact-checkers. We were ripped up and down by advocates for The Science™. And it turns out it was probably true, of course.”

Was the Wuhan wet market tale a lie from the get-go  – a script passage arguably modified from the 2008 Globalist-issued film Contagion and then slapped against the world?

What do I mean by that?

“We made that movie ON PURPOSE” with “honesty” and “good science,” was what Dr. Larry Brilliant, former Google, and World Health Organization (WHO) employee told a panel at the Aspen Institute following the film’s release.

But in this movie we call life, it’s on purpose with dishonesty and scientism.

Consider that now in 2023, the mainstream news is suddenly having a field day.  Even Bill Maher went scorched earth on the “wet market” Covid theory. Meanwhile, the CCP warned China-based Tesla owner Elon Musk against sharing the lab leak theory on Twitter.

But before we proceed, let’s recap: 

Early on, “the experts,” said that the sampled viruses supported the seafood market outbreak as the zoonotic origin.

So why are they doing damage control now by saying it’s a lab leak, albeit accidental? Or is there an agenda afoot?

Interestingly, in the now infamous March 2020 Nature Medicine paper “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2” they slipped in a short passage that conveniently served the Overton Window for whenever they were ready to move the goal post of “Truth.”

Here it is:

“Basic research involving the passage of bat SARS-like coronaviruses in cell culture and/or animal models have been ongoing in BSL-2 for many years in laboratories across the world and there are documented instances of laboratory escapes of SARS-COV. We must therefore examine the possibility of an inadvertent laboratory release of SARS-COV2.”

Incidentally, for those of us who have tracked and traced the virus hunters – long before the RONA Regime was activated–– we’ve known that gain of function engineering – now renamed ‘Directed Evolution’– has been going on for decades. BSL-4 labs have been in motion since the 1970s as so-called ‘scientists’ craft bioweapons out of anthrax, tularemia, Q fever, smallpox, and more.

Additionally, Patient Zero stories have been notoriously and historically fuzzy. This time was no different. Did you know that the alleged Patient Zero in Wuhan was put on medications followed by a ventilator? He only got worse. Were those contributing factors to his death? I haven’t heard anyone discuss such details. Have you? 

So many lies. It’s really hard to keep track.

“The greatest perpetrator of misinformation during the pandemic has been the United States government,” Dr. Martin Makary of John Hopkins recently said during the February 26 Select Subcommittee Roundtable,“Examining COVID Policy Decisions.”

Makary is right.

Lab Leak Lies

“I dont know for certain but I think it’s unlikely that this is the kind of virus that would be intentionally released,” Dr. Jay Bhattacharya M.D a professor at Stanford University Medical School and epidemiologist recently said during the February 26 Select Subcommittee Roundtable.

“The evidence … I’ve seen suggests that the lab leak is an active hypothesis. That it’s quite possible that this was a lab leak as a result of gain of function work to try to predict the next pandemic, to try to get vaccines available. I don’t think it has the characteristics of a bioweapon. I don’t think this has characteristics that were intentionally leaked. Certainly, not in an ethical way.”

No kidding. 

Bhattacharya added, “I also know that there are a lot of scientists who think that it was a natural origin. This is something that the US Congress definitely needs to get to the bottom of to get an answer.”

Scientists like who?

I don’t think Congress has a great record of getting to the bottom of anything for answers. Meanwhile, the world is still left wondering whether the ‘virus’ is a laboratory construct or not.

Could it be that the lab leak was a purposeful psyop?

According to the nonprofit Brownstone Institute, there was a November 2019 secret intelligence report claiming to show a large respiratory outbreak in Wuhan that was used to brief the US government. According to the Daily Sceptic, US intelligence officials have admitted in various media reports to tracking the coronavirus outbreak in China since mid-November 2019 and even briefed NATO and Israel at the time.

“Yet at no point has any detail been provided on what caused them to take this unusual action.”

These concerns were even detailed in a November intelligence report by the military’s National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI)”, citing two officials familiar with the report. The DailySceptic adds, “Analysts concluded it could be a cataclysmic event” and that “it was then briefed multiple times to” the Defense Intelligence Agency, the Pentagon’s Joint Staff and the White House.”

Keep in mind there was no full-blown outbreak at that time and zero reported deaths.  However, there were a few cases of infections or respiratory disease, following the Wuhan Military Games in September 2019. And reportedly, three of the lab’s staff at WIV fell ill and were hospitalized with respiratory symptoms just before the outbreak. The Chinese government aka the CCP hid them. Or it that what we were simply told? 

“Remember this pandemic did not start in January at the seafood market. We now know there were infections all the way back to September 2019,” Dr. Robert Redfield, former director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) under the Trump administration. Redfield stated this on March 8, 2023, during the first hearing of the House Select Subcommittee on the coronavirus pandemic. He also added the Proximal Origins paper was “an inaccurate paper that basically was part of a narrative they were creating.”

Redfield, who also testified that the virus was human-engineered, reminded the attendees that WIV published a paper in 2014  stating that they had accomplished the ability of coronavirus to bind to Ace2 receptors in humanized mice by re-orienting themselves to bind with the domain. To add to this point, politician Dr. Brad Wenstrup testified that they learned through a leaked DARPA grant operation that there was an application – funded through taxpayer dollars – in which WIV proposed inserting furin cleavage sites into novel coronaviruses – the same unique genetic aspects of COVID-19.

Pretty scathing.

Plandemic Memory Lane 

The first known mention that the coronavirus may have originated in a Chinese lab appeared on January 9, 2020, in a report by Radio Free Asia (RFA).

For what it’s worth, RFA  is actually a US-government-funded media outlet that is essentially a CIA front, named in 1977 by The New York Times as a key part of the agency’s “worldwide propaganda network.”

According to Brownstone Institute, RFA is managed by the government-funded Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), which answers directly to the Secretary of State – who, at “the outset of the pandemic was Mike Pompeo, whose previous job was as CIA Director.”

Why did RFA introduce the lab-engineered virus narrative, even before the first death? Were they trying to ratchet up the alarm?

Recall that Chinese virologist Dr. Li Meng Yan was among the first people to say the COVID virus was intentionally released by the Chinese government. While Yan was censored and ridiculed, soon after there was talk about snakes, camels, and pangolins before we landed on the bat caves and the Huanan wet market. Chimeric research anyone? 

“Given the similarity of SARS-CoV-2 to bat SARS-CoV-like coronaviruses, it is likely that bats serve as reservoir hosts for its progenitor,” reads Nature Medicine.

In late February 2023, reports emerged that the Department of Energy had assessed with “low confidence” that the virus originated from a lab. Meanwhile, the FBI director (Chris Wray) said “the origins of the pandemic are most likely a potential lab incident in Wuhan.”

And yet there is no tangible agreed-upon truth.

Although this is a “whole government” investigation there is still no consensus, with none on the horizon. As Fauci has pointed out, the four other intelligence agencies don’t buy the lab leak theory. ”

“After examining all available intelligence reporting and other information, though, the IC remains divided on the most likely origin of COVID-19,” the National Intelligence Council wrote.

Are we supposed to believe that it was released from a Chinese government-controlled lab but that it wasn’t designed? “Experts” and officials still maintain it was a natural spillover. An accidental one. Not a bioweapon.


Is the entire tale phony and a farce?

Dr. Yan who worked in Wuhan with coronaviruses maintained it was not an accident but an intentional release. And while the establishment clings to its wet market malarchy, it’s also speaking out of the other side of its mouth by now acquiesing that it was a “research-associated” accident with the lab escape a possibility. 

Recall that “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2”, submitted on February 12, 2020, reads:

“As noted at the start of this document, we believe that the origin of 2019-nCoV through laboratory manipulation of an existing SARS-related coronavirus can be ruled out with a high degree of confidence.” 

“If genetic manipulation had been performed, one would expect that a researcher would have probably used the several reverse-genetic systems available for betacoronaviruses. However, the genetic data irrefutably show that SARS-CoV-2 is not derived from any previously used virus backbone.”

Instead, the paper proposed two scenarios that can plausibly explain the origin of SARS-CoV-2: (i) natural selection in an animal host before zoonotic transfer or (ii) natural selection in humans following zoonotic transfer.

The authors (learn more about them here) added that a “detailed understanding of how an animal virus jumped species boundaries to infect humans so productively will help in the prevention of future zoonotic events.”

Again, the paper ruled out purposeful manipulation.

So what was Fauci’s role in all of this?  Stay Tuned, Part 2 is coming soon!
