Biden Demands COVID Lab-Leak Investigation After Ending Pompeo’s Efforts
The current administration and the American media are in full damage control mode.
On Wednesday afternoon, in a rare act of real journalism, CNN reported that Biden’s team shut down a State Department effort launched late in the Trump administration to prove the coronavirus originated in a Chinese lab.
The existence of the State Department inquiry and its termination this spring by the Biden administration — neither of which has been previously reported — comes to light amid renewed interest in whether the virus could have leaked out of a Wuhan lab with links to the Chinese military. The Biden administration is also facing scrutiny of its own efforts to determine if the Chinese government was responsible for the virus.
Those involved in the previously undisclosed inquiry, which was launched last fall by allies of then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, say it was an honest effort to probe what many initially dismissed: that China’s biological weapons program could have had a greater role in the pandemic’s origin in Wuhan, according to two additional sources.
In an astonishing reversal, and less than 24 hours after the CNN story broke, the occupants of the Oval Office are scrambling to relaunch the investigation. A report is due out in 90 days.
President Biden ordered U.S. intelligence agencies on Wednesday to investigate the origins of the coronavirus, indicating that his administration takes seriously the possibility that the deadly virus was accidentally leaked from a lab, in addition to the prevailing theory that it was transmitted by an animal to humans outside a lab.
In a statement, Mr. Biden made it clear that the C.I.A. and other intelligence agencies had not yet reached a consensus on how the virus, which prompted a pandemic and has killed almost 600,000 Americans, originated in China. But he directed them to conduct a deeper investigation and report back to him in 90 days.
“I have now asked the intelligence community to redouble their efforts to collect and analyze information that could bring us closer to a definitive conclusion,” the president said.
And while President Donald Trump reminds everyone that his term “China virus” was accurate, leaders of the anti-Trump #Resistance movement are also calling for further investigation.
Former President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he “was right” all along to pin the COVID-19 pandemic on China as the Biden administration called on the World Health Organization to begin a “transparent, science-based” investigation of the virus’ origins.
US Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra on Tuesday urged the WHO to launch a second investigation into the origins of the pandemic as the “lab leak” theory gains traction.
Becerra said in a video message that the international organization must conduct a “transparent” probe after a widely panned initial WHO review controlled by China, which said the virus likely emerged naturally from animals.
“Phase 2 of the COVID origins study must be launched with terms of reference that are transparent, science-based and give international experts the independence to fully assess the source of the virus and the early days of the outbreak,” Becerra said.
As a scientist, the data is in, and the consensus is that both the media and the current administration are in full damage control mode. So the only question I have is: Why now?
Vox is editing it articles “debunking” the coronavirus lab leak theory. These edits aren’t being disclosed to readers.

I'm old enough to remember last year when Slate told us that the highly-probable Lab Leak theory was- you guessed it – RACIST
"That’s because the rumors of a lab escape…stem from historical amnesia, a caricatured villain and good old-fashioned racism."https://t.co/QwLhq8oFmP

In this administration we have:
Flip Flop Fauci
Ho Ho Harris
Minimize Migration Mayorkas
Winken Blinken and Nod
Yo Yo Yellen
Pitter Patter Pete
and now we add Bada-bing Bada-bong Biden (at least a day late but never spending a dollar short!)!!
Okay. Ho Ho Harris.
Who is the Twinkue?
They’re all Ding Dongs.
I better stop these Zingers or they will/SnoBall out of control…
Let us hope there are no Twinkies among them … those last forever, y’know.
Like cockroaches – and Keith Richards.
Hahahahaha…this is really good! 🙂
Biden’s “investigation” will be a cover up
Of course. Biden’s puppetmasters need this to be their initiative. It won’t do at all for it to have been done by their enemies.
Biden ended Pompeo’s search for truth.
> Because he does not want truth
Biden started a new investigation
> Because truth was getting out – now need to develop anti-truth propaganda to protect China
Watch Biden’s so-called “investigation” exonerate China
As Biden previously said “Come-on man, there not bad guys, folks”
Biden is a bought-and-paid-for puppet.
And I still think he will pardon Hunter to stop any of the dirty secrets (pay-to-play) from being revealed.
The truth will never be know. Repressive regimes are good at repression AND suppression.
Like the name of the individual who stood in front of the tank at Tianamen Square and his ultimate fate. Someone knows who he was and what happened to him – but we never will.
Any bets on this being little more than the FBI’s politically-motivated so-called “investigations” designed to identify evidence and keep it from public exposure?
The Left and their media co-conspirators said that anybody who called it the “China Virus,” “Wuhan Virus,” “Kung Flu,” or anything similar was “racist.” Their puppets (masters?) in Big Tech censored or de-platformed people who used those terms.
They accused Trump, without anything resembling evidence of course, of fomenting anti-Asian violence for no reason other than he used those terms and said what everyone paying attention has known for almost a year and a half: It started in China.
Uncle Joe has an easy smack on this one, if he’ll take it. The balls on the tee and he can “swing for the fences”!
Every nation lost citizens and would be willing to side against the Communist China leadership.
Biden doesn’t need to prove COVID-19 was a biological weapon nor does he need to prove it leaked from a lab. Simply show that in December ’19 China locked down the Wuhan province and would not allow any domestic travel in / out but allowed international travel in / out. Next show that China kept everyone, including the WHO at bay. Finally use that ol’folksy boy from Scranton voice and inform the world, “gee, you know Pres Xi, if you’d have told the world just how horrible this was in December ’19 and not let your folks leave Wuhan and travel the globe millions of people would be alive today. Come on, man. . .we trusted you and you kept a poker face and mislead us. We may never know if this virus came from the lab but we know any evidence is now gone. Its time China became a good citizen and I’m asking our allies to stand with us and impose strict sanctions and I’m calling for American businesses to disconnect from China until Pres Xi can show they embrace the values respect, responsibility, trust and help. We can no longer allow the open theft of intellectual property, the open violation of human or the imperialistic expansion and misuse of global resources by overfishing or the belt and road initiative. We’d like to welcome China as an equal but its time they begin acting as such and misleading the world at the cost of millions of lives is not meeting those expectations”.
Yeah. . .I know, its a pipe dream but. . . .
American business CANNOT disconnect from China. The shelves at Wal-Mart would be empty by the end of the week and the country would be in open revolt. We’re stuck with China for the long haul, like it or not.
There are many other nations we can trade with … and we can make our own stuff as well, if we put our minds to it.
And that is the problem … both management and labor in America have been led to think that going beyond punching in, doing what you’re told by the “experts”, and punching out each day is a sucker’s bet.
That is as, if not more, significant than our desire for cheap stuff at Wal-Mart.
Investigating Wuhan bad, then good.
We have always been at war with Eastasia.
