The CCP lied, and millions died

Communist China lied, and millions of people died. That’s not a conspiracy – it’s a fact, and one that becomes more apparent with each resentful New York Times retraction. After years of denial, the mainstream media admits we were right about Hunter Biden’s laptop, Big Tech censorship, and school shutdowns. Now, you can add the CCP lab leak theory to the list of scandals that the mainstream media will never apologize for discrediting as conspiracy theories.
According to a recent Wall Street Journal report, the U.S. Department of Energy has concluded that the COVID-19 pandemic most likely originated from a laboratory leak in Wuhan, China.
Like clockwork, the Biden administration quickly took to the podium in a desperate attempt to save face. National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby even claimed “there is not a consensus right now” that COVID was cooked up in a Wuhan lab. Someone should inform Mr. Kirby that the FBI Director disagrees with that assessment. Regardless of the administration’s uncoordinated and confusing message, for quite some time there has been common sense agreement among the American people that Communist China had to have been involved. After all, they were studying dangerous pathogens like the coronavirus in a lab located at ground zero for the spread of the disease.
Over 1 million Americans have lost their lives to COVID-19 and thousands more have had their health, businesses, and communities destroyed by it. If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that there should be no tolerance for this glaring attempt to stonewall us in our search for who is responsible.
It is critically important that we get the truth from American intelligence officials instead of relying on the China-run World Health Organization (WHO). The WHO is so deeply intertwined with Beijing that so-called “public health officials” negotiated the language of their report on COVID origins with the Chinese Communist Party. That’s why last week, my Senate colleagues and I unanimously agreed to declassify intelligence about the origin of COVID-19 and convey a message of utmost urgency to the Biden White House.
Holding the Chinese Communist Party accountable should be a no-brainer. If they refuse to be forthcoming, we should impose sanctions. Communist China infected the entire world with a debilitating virus, corrupt public health ‘experts’ who are only interested in saving face tried to cover it up, and the mainstream media went along with it every step of the way. It’s far past time for answers. The American people are owed that much.
