If COVID Was Man-Made In A U.S.-Funded Lab, What Are You Going To Do About It?

The past several weeks have witnessed an unraveling of the COVID-19 narrative potentially indicating a massive cover-up of the virus’s origin. Two distinguished researchers released a study that refutes claims by the World Health Organization (WHO) that the virus had a natural origin.

The study, to be published in the Quarterly Review of Biophysics Discovery, indicates the virus that causes COVID-19 was man-made — engineered in a lab by creating unique spike proteins and attaching them to the virus in a manner that does not occur in nature. The researchers concluded it is likely the virus was engineered at China’s Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) during coronavirus gain-of-function experiments up to a year before the first outbreak.

Also, according to a previously undisclosed U.S. intelligence report as reported in the Wall Street Journal, three individuals who worked at WIV were treated for COVID-19-type symptoms in local hospitals in November 2019, three weeks earlier than the first reported cases of the virus according to the Chinese government. This, combined with reports that the Wuhan lab was unexpectedly closed for weeks in October 2019 for what appears to be a major decontamination effort, paints a damning picture.

With the emergence of this new information, the Biden administration has called for an intelligence review of the virus’s origin, after shutting down a Trump administration investigation into the virus’s origin just a few weeks prior. So the man-made origin theory, which was previously “debunked” and censored in both social media and new outlets, is looking more likely than not to be true.

In addition to the changing narrative on the virus’s origin, a raft of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s emails obtained via open records request by The Washington Post provided a series of new revelations. Namely, Fauci was aware of the likely man-made origin of the virus, did not believe masking was an effective precaution, and—in his capacity as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease­­­­­s—provided funding to the non-profit EcoHealth Alliance, which funded WIV’s gain-of-function experiments on the coronavirus.

In other words, it’s possible the United States helped fund the creation of the virus responsible for COVID-19 through Fauci’s NIH.

The Cost of Blind Obedience

So, what was the cost of believing the global establishment’s lies? As many as 600,000 people have reportedly died in the United States with COVID-19 since the outbreak began in January 2020. More than 200,000 businesses were permanently closed due to arbitrary pandemic restrictions. The unemployment rate rose from 3.5 percent in February 2020 to 14.7 percent in April 2020 due to COVID-19 lockdowns.

While those numbers have improved, unemployment remains almost double its pre-pandemic numbers, hovering around 6.5 percent. America’s billionaires increased their wealth by $1.2 trillion in the same timeframe, according to Forbes.

The national debt rose to a whopping $26.9 trillion, deeply threatening America’s long-term economic health. Last but not least, the 2020 election was tainted by allegations of voter fraud due to improper changes to election laws in the name of COVID-19 restrictions.

These COVID-19 pandemic lies also provided a new foothold for tyranny. State governors and their public health departments circumvented the Constitution with emergency powers to arbitrarily close businesses, shut down schools, outlaw religious gatherings, and cease all social interaction. Governors used law enforcement to arrest, fine, and imprison citizens who refused to comply with their edicts.

The cancel mob destroyed the careers of prominent people who questioned the COVID-19 narrative or proposed alternate drug therapies. Big tech censored any information, no matter how well grounded in science, contrary to Fauci’s fraudulent proclamations.

In the “never let a crisis go to waste” category, in April 2020 the Department of Justice asked Congress for expanded authorities to deny habeas corpus and use involuntary detention without trial for U.S. citizens on U.S. soil. Additionally, in May 2021, the assistant to the U.S. solicitor general argued before the Supreme Court for the permission to circumvent the Fourth Amendment through warrantless search and seizure authority in citizen’s homes.

Neither of these attempts to dispose of the Bill of Rights succeeded, but the mere fact that the DOJ and their congressional supporters made the attempt says a lot about their respect for the constitutional rights of American citizens.

Is there anything less American than all this? As U.S. District Court Judge James C. Dever said in blocking the North Carolina governor’s ban on religious services, “There is no pandemic exception to the Constitution of the United States.”

The Silver Lining

There may be a silver lining in this. COVID-19 could become a vaccination, of sorts, against tyranny. While we are digging ourselves out of the multitude of lies and deceit delivered to us by our government officials, media, academia, and social institutions, we can take heart that we have survived long enough to expose the scam.

So we should now be inoculated against the lies of a morally bankrupt and corrupt ruling elite. Who among us can now believe anything that comes from a government official, a politician, the legacy media, or any other number of technocratic experts?

Yes, the ruling elite had their way with us. They made trillions off our isolation and suffering. The tyrants gained immense power from a compliant and trusting citizenry who gave them the benefit of the doubt. But those days are over.

Now it is for us to assume command of our lives and our country. It is up to us to put America back on the path that we choose to follow, not the path laid out for us by a failed collection of “betters” and “experts.”

Whether by creating new laws restricting emergency powers, reshaping and restructuring institutions, employing antitrust regulations against big tech, replacing elected leaders or implementing strict accountability of the government bureaucracy, we must take the visible and necessary actions to make it clear that this will not be tolerated again.

The question Americans should ask is not just what else may emerge from this cover-up, but what are we prepared to do about what we now know. We have a chance to learn and make our communities stronger from this experience if we choose to do the work. It’s time to help repair the lives of those who were damaged by the COVID lies and make sure we don’t get fooled again.
