REPORT: Senate committee confirms validity of ‘lab leak’ theory

Published in Blog on October 31, 2022 by Catie Robertson

For nearly three years, Republicans and all freethinking Americans have been called conspiracy theorists for even mentioning the so-called ‘lab leak conspiracy’.

Now, a Senate report from the committee on health education, labor and pensions suggests the bulk of evidence weighs heavily in its favor.

This report analyzes the evidence present and absent for both the theory that the coronavirus emerged from a naturally occurring zoonotic outbreak and the theory that it was released as the result of a research-related incident.

The report specifically outlines how the coronavirus outbreak would differ from other zoonotic disease outbreaks, like the SARS epidemic of the early 2000s or the Avian flu in 2013, if it was indeed a natural zoonotic spillover.

Unlike these other two epidemics mentioned, SARS-CoV-2 had a “lack of geographically disparate cases” typical when diseases spill over from animals to humans.

Secondly, in early 2020 when the wet market where the spillover event was hypothesized to occur was inspected, the World Health Organization and the Chinese government concurred that “none of the animals at the market when it was closed, in the market’s supply chain, or in China’s animal farming industry were infected with SARS-CoV-2”.

No other evidence has yet been reported tracing an animal infected with SARS-CoV-2 before the first human case was made known to the world.

Meanwhile, suspicion clouds the Wuhan Institute of Virology, “China’s premier coronavirus institute”.

Research grant proposals as well as lab notes from within the institute demonstrate that the same ACE-2 receptor that was present in SARS-CoV-2 was studied if not designed in experiments at this laboratory in order to “increase binding affinity to human lung tissue”.

Not only that, but several biosafety and biosecurity incidents were reported in 2019 and 2020 within the lab.

While all this evidence stacks up, officials and citizens alike are still criticized for calling suggesting the lab leak theory. Even though Dr. Fauci himself had similar suspicions in April of 2020, expressed in emails released to the public months later.

One cannot help but ask, is this lack of transparency connected with the NIH funding at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, funding these very experiments?

While questions will undoubtedly continue to circulate regarding the origins of this virus that deeply impacted the lives of Americans and citizens worldwide, we must remember that truth and transparency are the backbone of a good and honorable republic.

If unelected officials rule our lives, lock us in our homes, and then expect to be left unaccountable for their actions and the truths they kept from the American people, then we are the fools.

We are the fools for allowing their power to flounce unchecked.

Thomas Paine spoke wisely when he said, “When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon.”

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here: https://conventionofstates.com/handbook_pdf

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have:

info@conventionofstates.com or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
