Yes, China Caused This Pandemic

Everybody knows this, but you’re not supposed to say it: A new study from renowned University of Hamburg researcher Roland Wiesendanger concludes the Wuhan Institute of Virology was the “cause” of COVID-19. The February study argues against two prevailing theories that COVID-19 was transmitted to humans either via a wet market or a lab accident. […]

Eric Swalwell’s Chinese Honey Trap

When Chinese agent “Christine” Fang first befriended Eric Swalwell, he was just a city councilman in a suburb of Oakland, California. So how did she know to target him specifically? Swalwell challenged incumbent Rep. Pete Stark, who had Obama’s endorsement, in the 2012 Democratic primary. Out of all the local politicians in the San Francisco […]

The Video You MUST Watch: Origins of the Chinese Communist Virus

Joshua Philipp of the Epoch Times has spent weeks reporting on the pandemic of COVID-19, and this video — nearly an hour long — is full of facts about the case I hadn’t known until I watched it.

As COVID-19 spreads across the nation, Rep. Sean Casten (D., Ill.) has repeatedly attempted to blame Trump and […]

‘Chinese Bat Soup Flu’ Update

  Hat-tip to Kurt Schlicter for giving this pandemic a memorable name.

We tried to be voices of prudent skepticism amid the hysterical outpouring of Fear and Loathing unleashed by the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic. It seemed to us irresponsible — and perhaps even racist — […]
