Its Lies Exposed, The Left Screams

March 11, 2023 Frontpage No Comments

By CHRISTOPHER MANION

It’s “Pull Back the Curtain” time in Washington, as new and crucial revelations rock the Capitol.
And speaking of rocking the Capitol, among those revelations is proof that the Left’s entire “January 6th Insurrection” narrative was a concoction that would make Dzerzhinsky proud.
A couple of weeks ago, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy gave Tucker Carlson of Fox News thousands of hours of video captured by security cameras throughout the Capitol.
Former Speaker Nancy Pelosi had kept the videos under secrecy so tight that it was withheld from lawyers representing hundreds of January 6th defendants against charges brought by Merrick Garland’s Justice Department.
The appearance of this vital evidence, which appears to disprove the entire “insurrection” narrative, will undoubtedly throw into chaos those “January 6th” cases already tried in various federal courts.
But, as Bill Clinton used to say, “Hey, so what? That’s old news!”
While this new “Capitol Video Scandal” is still in its early stages, the walk-back has already begun. Cong. Bennie Thompson (D., Miss.), the dependable Democrat Pelosi named to chair the “January 6th Committee,” has already pleaded ignorance.
Last Thursday, CNN’s Alayna Treene reported that “Thompson said he doesn’t think any of the January 6 members themselves ever had access to the footage — they let only staff view it. ‘I’m actually not aware of any member of the committee who had access. We had a team of employees who kind of went through the video’.”
Unbelievable — but classic: Ignoramus Chairman blames unnamed “employees.”
It’s always fascinating to enjoy such a close-up view of the Ministry of Truth’s “Rewrite Department.”
Why, any minute now, the staff will be gathering in the Capitol Lobby for the daily “Two Minutes Hate” directed at Big Brother’s perpetual enemy — not “Goldstein,” as George Orwell would have it, but — you guessed it — Donald Trump.
Time to stock up on popcorn.

Vindication Is Sweet — But Don’t Expect An Apology

Speaking of revelations, we reported last week that the U.S. Department of Energy and the FBI now admit that the most likely source of the coronavirus was the Chinese Defense Ministry’s Level-4 Bio-Safety Lab in the city of Wuhan. That determination took so long, FBI Director Christopher Wray said, because the Communist Chinese were doing their best “to thwart and obfuscate the work” of the FBI and others seeking to prove the origins of the virus.
But the ChiComs had important allies in their disinformation campaign: For three years, their denials were echoed by a unanimous establishment media.
China scholar Steven Mosher was one of the key targets of that campaign. This week, we had the opportunity to ask him about it, and it’s now clear why China apologists universally blacklisted him: Mosher’s banned reporting identified not only the source of the virus — the Wuhan Lab — but the reason it was created.
“Way back in February 2020, I published articles arguing not only that the China Virus came from the Wuhan lab, but that it was a bioweapon created using Gain-of-Function techniques,” Mosher tells The Wanderer.
“I was instantly slammed as a conspiracy theorist, and my articles disappeared from the Internet. It was clear to me that, since I was taking so much flak, that I must be over the target.
“Now, three full years later, we have Deep State actors like Christopher Wray engaging in a ‘limited hangout.’ They now admit that it ‘leaked’ from the lab, hoping that this partial truth will quell the controversy.
“It won’t,” Mosher said — and he’s determined to make sure that it won’t.
“The China Virus was not only created in the Wuhan lab — using U.S. Gain-Of-Function techniques and U.S. funding — but it was created for use as a bioweapon and deliberately unleashed on the world,” he said.
“That’s a pretty explosive charge, isn’t it?” I asked.
In response, Mosher posed a “what-if” featuring Dr. Anthony Fauci, who served as director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) from 1984 to 2022, and as chief medical adviser to the president during 2021 and 2022.
“What would you say if the U.S. (think ‘Fauci’) had trained Chinese scientists how to enrich uranium, helped to fund their enrichment program, and actually provided them with some enriched uranium?” Mosher asked.
“Then they built a bunch of nuclear weapons and deliberately detonated them in every country around the world. Now replace the words ‘enriched uranium’ with ‘the China Virus’ and you will know what really happened. And why the Deep State is so desperate to cover up its involvement by covering up for China.”

A Tale Of Fear And Desperation

Mosher’s nightmare scenario shocks the imagination, but consider: If China’s Dear Leader Xi Jinping intentionally unleashed the virus on an unsuspecting world, it would constitute the greatest bioweapons attack in world history.
Maybe that’s why Dr. Fauci is desperate to avoid an investigation of his federal office’s funding of Chinese Communist biological research, and why his ignorant lapdogs in the “mainstream media” have gone along.
Fauci’s façade continued to collapse on March 8, when explosive details of the media campaign engineered to perpetuate the China Virus coverup were revealed in testimony before the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic.
There, Nicholas Wade filled in the blanks.
Wade’s media experience includes years as a science writer, editor, and author working on the staff of Nature, Science, and, for many years, as science editor of The New York Times.
In his testimony, Wade asked, “if the evidence for the lab leak is so strong, why do so many people still believe the virus came from nature?”
“The reason,” he testified, “is that the natural origin camp got its story out first. . . . It very successfully painted the lab leak as a ‘conspiracy theory’ before anyone [had even] opposed [the natural origin camp] publicly.”
No contest: It was a masterstroke of deception.
Mr. Wade continued:
“The national media swallowed the natural origin story unskeptically, and, once committed to it, failed to report important contrary evidence. . . . Science journalists in particular, it seems to me, fell down on their job by failing to check out the virologists’ self-serving claims.” (Wade’s written testimony painstakingly details media malfeasance of a historic magnitude.)
“The natural origin theory did not prevail by accident,” Wade said. “It was promoted by science administrators in the United States and England, including Francis Collins and Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health. The NIH is a national treasure and Collins and Fauci, the most prominent leaders at the time, are well known to the public and on Capitol Hill.
“It’s hard to believe that in the twilight of their long careers, they would seriously mishandle an issue as important as the origin of the COVID virus. Yet that is what the evidence seems to point to.
“The campaign to discredit lab leak,” Wade continued, “began on the evening of January 31, 2020, when Fauci received an email from four virologists led by Kristian Andersen of Scripps Research.
“They had all concluded that Sars 2 . . . could not have been made in nature,” Wade said. “Fauci was probably not too pleased to hear that the virus might have escaped from research that his agency has funded.”
And then came the bombshell:
“A strange thing happened to the virologists’ conclusion,” Wade testified. “Within four days, Anderson, in an email on February fourth, repudiated, deriding the lab leak as a crackpot theory.
“What made him change his mind?” Wade asked. “No new scientific evidence about the virus came to light between January 31 and February fourth, but from that 180-degree reversal, a whole campaign was able to be developed including highly influential articles placed in Nature, Medicine, and The Lancet.”
Any sane and responsible U.S. president would call out Communist China for this most grievous of war crimes.
Will Joe Biden?
