COVID-19 Origin Report is More of a Capitulation to China Than Initially Reported

COVID-19 Origin Report is More of a Capitulation to China Than Initially Reported

Squishy analysis was pretty much everything China would have wanted it to be.

As I recently noted, the Biden-ordered 90-day review of the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic has ended. Biden was privately briefed, between reports of the continuing debacle of the withdrawal of American troops from Afghanistan.

I reviewed the public version of the Intelligence Committee report. The assessment is more of a capitulation to China than I initially projected.

U.S. intelligence agencies remain “divided on the most likely origins of COVID-19,” after President Joe Biden’s 90-day push for his intel community to “redouble their efforts” to find a more definitive conclusion regarding the source of the virus.

In a declassified summary released late Friday afternoon, the agencies said that two hypotheses for the virus’ origin remain possible: either natural exposure to an infected animal, or an accidental lab leak.

Four elements of the U.S. intelligence community said with “low confidence” that COVID-19 was initially spread from an animal to a human, while one element assessed with “moderate confidence” that the first human infection was the result of a “laboratory-associated incident, probably involving experimentation, animal handling, or sampling by the Wuhan Institute of Virology,” and pointing to the “inherently risky nature of work on Coronaviruses.”

The agencies, however, generally agreed that the virus was most likely not developed as a biological weapon, and that China’s leaders did not know about the virus before the start of the global pandemic.

The report obfuscates and diminishes the assertions of former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had full knowledge of the information related to COVID-19’s origins during his tenure in the Trump administration.

Most concerning is that this report asserts that Chinese leadership did not know about the outbreak, a contradiction of Pompeo’s previous assessment.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said “enormous evidence” exists indicating the coronavirus pandemic began in a lab in Wuhan, China and that the ruling Communist Party did everything it could to keep the outbreak under wraps.

“There’s enormous evidence that that’s where this began. We’ve said from the beginning that this was a virus that originated in Wuhan, China. We took a lot of grief for that from the outset. But I think the whole world can see now,” he said on ABC News’ “This Week” on Sunday.

The public report is replete with bureaucratic blather that also confuses this issue. Take, for example, this line:

Most agencies also assess with low confidence that SARS-CoV-2 probably was not genetically engineered; however, two agencies believe there was not sufficient evidence to make an assessment either way.

Let me translate: There is a reasonably high chance that this virus was bioengineered.

At least this is a point that aligns with previous assessments I have covered:

I would like to take a moment to point out that just a few short weeks ago, the same intelligence assets that generated this report were sounding the alarm on election-result-doubters and those who questioned the safety and efficacy of the federal government’s COVID response.

A new report from the U.S. intelligence community warns of future, unspecified, violence committed by domestic extremists, who have been emboldened by the siege on the U.S. Capitol and conspiracy theories about the 2020 election and coronavirus pandemic.

… It concludes that racially and ethnically motivated extremists, such as white supremacists and those tied to violent militias, are considered the “most lethal” threats. Lone offenders or smaller cells of extremists are more likely than organizations to carry out attacks, and are proving harder for law enforcement to track.

The threat of militia extremist groups increased last year and is expected to continue to heighten throughout 2021, the report said. That’s because of “sociopolitical factors” motivating these groups, “such as narratives of fraud in the recent general election, the emboldening impact of the violent breach of the US Capitol, conditions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, and conspiracy theories promoting violence.”

Granted, it is much easier to spy on effective news analysts and falsely accuse Americans of “insurrection” because they have a boxed Lego model of the U.S. Capitol in their closet than to effectively carry out intelligence on a foreign adversary such as China.

I suppose we should all be grateful that the report did not blame the release on Fort Detrick, per Chinese propaganda. It was probably the only element on China’s wish-list that didn’t make it into this squishy analysis.

Where ‘more’ = ‘total’.

Way back when this first started multiple experts quickly concluded there was no way Covid-19 evolved naturally. It was obviously bioengineered — man-made.

Motivated entirely by politics, their views were deliberately quashed. They were threatened and marginalized.

And Fauci is in part responsible. He helped fund the bioweapons research in China that manufactured Covid-19. He should spend the rest of his life in prison. But because The Swamp protects its own, and because The Swamp is in bed with the CCP, nothing will happen. The ‘official’ story the ‘experts’ will endorse is “we’ll probably never know”.

The CCP is responsible for the deaths of over 4 million people. Which is basically BAU for commies. And our federal government is totally and completely corrupt, refusing to acknowledge that reality.

“The report obfuscates and diminishes the assertions of former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who had full knowledge of the information related to COVID-19’s origins during his tenure in the Trump administration”.

It does no such thing

This capitulation is downright dangerous. It is indicative of how China has bought and paid for the majority of Biden’s appointees or their spouses.

The Intelligence Community has pretty well known that COVID-19 was manufactured in a virology lab in Wuhan for a year and a half now. We know people there who essentially admitted it back then. And the evidence has continued to mount since then.

Possibly the smoking gun though was the recent discovery of the remnants of the Nipah virus in the blood of one of the first identified COVID-19 patients. This is significant, because there is precisely one place on the planet where the Nipah virus and the likely predecessor of the SARS-CoV-2 virus were in the Wuhan Institute of Virology, prior to the outbreak of COVID-19. The Nipah virus is rated as a Category C (emerging) Bioterrorism threat, and therefore is only supposed to be worked on in a BSL 4 lab, like the one in Canada where it was taken from by a pair of, since deported, Chinese researchers, and the WIV, where they took it. BTW, this also strongly suggests that the emergence from the WIV lab was the result of (IMHO typical) shoddy lab practices.

    Exactly

    But we Americans don’t matter anymore
    We are sheep easily replaced to the enlists who are all bought by the Chinese

    From what I’ve read about the BSL-4 lab at the Wuhan facility not only were the lab practices “shoddy” they were pretty much non-existent and that they were using BSL-2 safety precautions at most for some of their most dangerous gain of function work.

    At what point do we finally stop referring to them as the “Intelligence Community” and call them what they really are ? They are part of the propaganda machine. The write reports they know their superiors want to use to justify some agenda. It’s pathetic and Stalinist. They know promotions depend upon sucking up – not on being right.

Did anyone expect different? We all know the Chinese own the pedophile-in-chief, so the outcome of this was already set.

You might also like, or really NOT like to know, the China virus was worked on With level 2 precautions

Level 2 is what American Dentists adhere to

Think about what other gems are going n store for us…

    You might also like, or really NOT like to know, the CCP has plans to build upwards of 25 more BSL-4 labs this decade. And if they are run as well as the BSL-4 lab at the Wuhan Institute then God help us all because nobody else will.

Take a knee, beg, responsibility, truth, and demos are aborted in darkness.

Is it time to stop simping for the national security state and roll out the budget cuts in order to (in the words of allied ww2 propaganda) get our people some of the good stuff?
