However, most experts believe that this theory no longer holds, and most of the evidence points to a lab leak of some sort from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
Originally, the roles were reversed. Many saw the lab leak theory as a conspiracy theory from conservatives while people who were actually following the evidence that was publicly available noted that it wasn’t so far-fetched . Multiple reports by various media outlets intending to cover this up by saying “We were just following the information we had at the time!” ignore the outright hostility they maintained toward anyone who suggested the lab leak theory was more plausible.
But one of the interesting (and horrifying) tidbits that came out about this particular lab is the involvement of the United States government — and, more directly, Dr. Anthony Fauci’s involvement. RedState’s own Scott Hounsell has worked brilliantly on breaking a lot of this information down (you can find all of his reporting here ). Fauci has now been caught lying to Rand Paul and the rest of the country over the gain-of-function research that the U.S. helped pay for and that Fauci appears to have directly overseen.
Before I continue, I need to clarify something: Saying the virus leaked from a lab in Wuhan is not the same as saying the virus was created by the Chinese government. A lot of the evidence seems to suggest that the virus did occur naturally in bats and that this facility in Wuhan was studying it. The introduction of gain-of-function research, however, suggests that some tampering was done to test the possibilities of the virus’ effect on humans, should it jump species in some way. The National Institute of Health confirmed via a document release that, despite what Fauci claimed, the U.S. did have a hand in funding this research . AP Photo/J.

One Sick Day Proves We Need More Voices in Truthful Media
On October 19, I was sick. It crossed my mind that I had finally gotten the ‘rona, but my wife’s cream of chicken soup and a few extra hours of sleep into mid-afternoon had be back up and running after a sleepless night before.
When I finally stumbled over to my computer in the evening, I was met with a deluge of concern from readers. They asked what had happened as only one article had been posted that day. Generally, we post between 10-20 daily between all of the sites, not included curated and aggregated content. Seeing that we’d only posted my super-early morning article before taking the rest of the day off had readers assuming the worst.
We have a wonderful and talented group of writers who volunteer their time for the sites and their readers. Sharing their amazing perspectives has always been a blessing to us because we cannot afford to hire anyone at this time. But having great writers is meaningless if we don’t have great editors, or at least one additional. My wife helps me read and edit stories from time to time, but I’m a one-man show when it comes to getting the stories posted.
Whenever I highlight our desperate need for donations, I note that we do not receive money from Google ads even though most in conservative media are beholden. I often ambiguously note that the money donated will help us grow. Today, I’m highlighting a specific need. We must get an editor to help take some of the load and to expand on our mission of spreading the truth to the world. One sick day proved that.
The great news is that there is no shortage of people who CAN help. I am emailed variations of resumes every week by people who are much smarter than I am. As much as I’d love to hire some of them, we simply cannot. That takes money and as blessed as we’ve been to receive donations and collect ad money (though not from Google or Facebook), we have still fallen short.
Those who have the means, PLEASE consider donating. We have the standard Giving Fuel option and people can donate through PayPal. We are also diving into what we believe is extremely disruptive technology at LetsGo.finance, the world’s first major donation portal for crypto. I’ll be talking a lot more about them in the near future. Those who prefer Bitcoin can send to my address here: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
We can get the voices out there and we’re willing to shine a spotlight on new talent. We just need the resources to make it happen. If you can help, we would be extremely grateful.
Thank you and God bless!
