As the world watched the unfolding of the so-called “pandemic” that brought us to our knees, many wondered how we found ourselves in such a pickle. Did COVID-19 come from “bat soup’ or another animal source, or was it concocted in a lab and released either deliberately or accidentally to conveniently coincide with the US presidential election, where Trump’s thriving economy reigned supreme?

As you might imagine, the theories surrounding COVID’s origins are divided along political lines. Folks on the right tend to believe it started in a lab, and much of the evidence that came to light bolstered that theory.

Daily Mail:

Scientists have found traces of coronavirus that could bolster the theory that the pandemic began with a leak from a laboratory.

The discovery, from analysis of soil samples, suggests coronavirus may not have jumped from wildlife into humans naturally.

More evidence is needed, however, particularly relating to exactly when the virus entered the samples.

Scientists in Hungary found traces of a unique variant of coronavirus while examining DNA from soil from Antarctica that had been sent to the firm Sangon Biotech in Shanghai.

The researchers also found genetic material from Chinese hamsters and green monkeys, which may suggest the virus was being examined in a lab, using either the animals themselves or their cells.

Some of those who support the lab leak theory suggest Chinese scientists engineered the virus in a lab to make it more dangerous as part of an experiment, before the virus escaped.

Folks on the left, with Dr. Anthony Fauci at the helm, have firmly held their ground, refusing even to consider the possibility that COVID originated “unnaturally.” Fauci was adamant that COVID did not have a lab origin, and many people believe his absurdly over-the-top dismissal of that theory stems from his conclusive involvement in funding risky virus research. But he’d rather watch the world burn than admit the lab theory holds water.

National Geographic:

Anthony “Tony” Fauci has become the scientific face of America’s COVID-19 response, and he says the best evidence shows the virus behind the pandemic was not made in a lab in China.

Fauci, the director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, shot down the discussion that has been raging among politicians and pundits, calling it “a circular argument” in a conversation Monday with National Geographic.

“If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats and what’s out there now, [the scientific evidence] is very, very strongly leaning toward this could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated … Everything about the stepwise evolution over time strongly indicates that [this virus] evolved in nature and then jumped species,” Fauci says. Based on the scientific evidence, he also doesn’t entertain an alternate theory—that someone found the coronavirus in the wild, brought it to a lab, and then it accidentally escaped.

Now, thanks to Dr. Kadlec, the former Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response at HHS, we have a much clearer understanding of why Dr. Fauci was likely so staunchly against the lab theory. According to Dr. Kadlec, it was because Fauci didn’t want to tarnish his public image.

If you believe what Dr. Kadlec says, Fauci and other so-called “experts” were fully aware of COVID’s artificial origins but concealed the truth from the world in order to safeguard their reputations and status. Fauci wanted to protect all his GQ-looking photoshoots.

In addition, they aggressively criticized and defamed those who correctly pointed out the lab leak theory. The “experts” actions resulted in the loss of over seven million lives, so they could maintain their standing on the world’s stage.

It makes you wonder why Fauci and his cohorts aren’t in a prison cell.
