What else have they lied about?!
By Pete Riehm

After more than a year of covering for China and lying about the Chinese virus, the Democrat Media Complex and our federal government can no longer contain the truth. The simple logic that COVID19 is a manmade virus has always been overwhelming, but finally evidence is mounting that it was engineered by China with American taxpayer money in their suspicious Wuhan lab. Besides China's failure to produce any evidence this virus was connected to an animal or even occurring naturally, average folks never believed the tall tale that some bat 600 miles away infected a Pangolin in a Wuhan wet market and this animal contagion promptly jumped to humans. That fantastical story never made sense, and now we know it was a lie!

It turns out Dr. Anthony Fauci is more of a mad scientist than a public health official. He has advocated for and even invested in “gain of function” research for more than a decade. “Gain of function” is the concept of making viruses more contagious and dangerous––and specifically engineering an animal virus to infect humans. He excuses his interest as wanting to understand how to combat a biological weapon, but instead he helped make one. The Chinese military has been talking about weaponizing viruses for years; what did he think was going to happen? And why in the world would you conduct such hazardous research in China?!

Dr. Fauci has a lot to explain. He has repeatedly lied and even perjured himself about the origins of COVID19 since this all started. He has studied such virology his entire a career, and in January 2017 even predicted such a pandemic. He has known all along exactly what COVID19 is and where it came from, so why has he pretended to be flummoxed about COVID19 the past year? Why has he misled the American public with his nonsensical prescriptions that needlessly shut down America and damaged countless Americans economically? And he is culpable.

But Fauci still refuses to relent. He demands everyone including children be vaccinated and now says we will need boosters, but he still insists we remain apart and masked. Having helped rogue governments control our lives, he surely knows they will not give up that power. To what end?

Aside from wondering why our ruling elite were compelled to lie about the origins of the Chinese virus, we must ask what else are they lying about. The short answer is they are lying about pretty much everything. It’s all too convenient and actually obvious. China was suffering economically from President Trump’s policies; Trump was facing down our greatest threat and winning. China desperately needed Trump gone and found willing allies in the Democrat Socialist Party.

It’s now essentially indisputable that COVID19 came from the Wuhan lab. Was it an accidental release or an intentional biological attack? With the guidance of Dr. Fauci, America was shut down and then scrambled to loosen voting procedures that enabled widespread voter fraud. How convenient that this sinister series of events hobbled Trump’s economy and set the stage for a highly suspect and unthinkable electoral upset. Is it a coincidence that China got what they wanted?

China supports globalism because they know they will circumvent any rules and fully dominate any international agency the way they have made the World Health Organization a Chinese puppet. The eight years of the Obama Administration were focused on taming Americans and weakening America to make it pliable and susceptible to globalism, but President Trump disrupted their socialist schemes. American leftists and China found common purpose in removing Trump.

The ludicrous Russia hoax that Trump colluded with Russia had no basis and never made sense, but the actions and motivations of China and Democrats align nicely. How many Democrats have illicit relationships with Chinese spies? The Obama administration allowed Biden to indulge all manner of corruption with China because they viewed China as a partner in globalism. So when Trump became an obstacle to their nefarious intentions, they were already cozy, and colluding to topple Trump was an easy next step.

Americans have long sensed there is something dreadfully wrong, even rotten, in Washington. The federal bureaucracy or Deep State is hopelessly corrupt, incredibly saturated with leftists, and doggedly dedicated to foisting socialism on America. Beyond lying about their intentions, bureaucrats, Democrats, and the media lied about Russian collusion, COVID19, rampant voter fraud, and Chinese complicity. It was all a massive masterfully orchestrated ruse to destroy Trump and all conservatives. Like their Chinese handlers, American leftists covet unassailable one-party rule, so any means necessary to seize irresistible power is justified.

Dr. Fauci should surely be investigated and indicted for his crimes against America, but it's past time to drop any pretense that America did not suffer a biological warfare attack followed by a cyber attack on our elections. China is more than a threat; China is the foremost enemy of the United States and the American people. And when the entire sordid story is revealed, it will be inescapable that Democrats and the Deep State sold out America to China!

"Now when the plot was investigated and found to be so, they were both hanged on a gallows" (Esther 2:23).
