Evidence Pointing To Coronavirus Bioweapons Link Not Debunked

Trump Cotton Coronavirus
Speaking on Fox News' Sunday Morning Futures, Senator Tom Cotton, Republican from Arkansas, reiterated his assertion that the Chinese government has been "lying from the beginning, and they're still lying today" about the gravity of the virus and perhaps even its origins.

"The situation is very grave in part because… China was lying from the beginning, and they're still lying today," the senator said. "And also because there are so many unknowns about this virus. For example, how many people one person can infect once they have the virus?"

Cotton has been sounding the alarm on the danger of the coronavirus outbreak and among other alternatives, suggested that the new disease may have originated from Red China’s bioweapons super lab in Wuhan.

Naturally, anything critical of Red China has been met with almost universal condemnation or censorship from the establishment media. However, Chinese citizen journalists, physicians and scientists whose reports have leaked out of China – in some cases at the peril of the reporter’s life – tell a story that suggests Senator Cotton is right to connect the coronavirus outbreak to China’s Wuhan bioweapons super lab.

Kim Hyo-sun of Arirang News, the global news agency based in Seoul, South Korea, reports that as the world struggles to contain the new virus, “a new speculation from the Chinese scientists... who believe it may have originated at a research facility not far from the Wuhan fish market.”

While they say more research needs to be done to find solid proof, such labs are known to contain disease-ridden animals, including hundreds of bats, reported Ms. Kim.

Ms. Kim further reports that, “Amid the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus... there's rising speculation the virus could have originated from a government laboratory in Wuhan rather than the widely-held belief that it emerged from the city's Huanan seafood markets.”

Citing a report published by Chinese scientists, a Chinese-language newspaper published in Hong Kong, Ming Pao, and the British daily, The Mirror, Ms. Kim explained Sunday that the Wuhan Center for Disease Control, or WHCDC, could have spawned the contagion in Hubei Province.

According to the report penned by Botao Xiao and Lei Xiao of the South China University of Technology, the research lab, which is only 280 meters away from the Huanan seafood market, kept disease-ridden animals including more than 600 bats.

The report also raised the possibility that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could have leaked the virus while it was carrying out tests involving Chinese horseshoe bats. Ms. Kim’s report stated that while it's plausible the virus was leaked from the lab and contaminated initial patients in this epidemic, more solid evidence is required through future study.

Against such a background, reported Ms. Kim, an article published by The Washington Times late last month is garnering attention, as it raised the possibility that the disastrous outbreak could be the accidental result of biological weapons research. This comes as a renowned law professor at Tsinghua University in Beijing, Xu Zhangrun, is now known to be missing after publicly condemning Chinese President Xi Jinping for failing to contain the spread of the virus at an early stage.

Prof. Xu even added the condemnation could be the last message of his life.

But never mind Prof. Xu’s willingness to put his life on the line to get the truth out, Sen. Cotton’s observations about Red Chinese government lying and one possible source of the virus has been thoroughly “debunked” according to the establishment media.

Except, in view of Ms. Kim’s report from Seoul, and what Ashe Schow writing for the Daily Wire pointed out in her column, Senator Cotton’s observations have not been debunked at all.

Sen. Cotton has said multiple times that we currently don’t know where exactly the coronavirus has originated (he said China’s explanation that it originated in a fish market is untrue) noted Ms. Schow. Cotton has also said that just miles away from that food market is a Chinese super lab that studies human infectious diseases.

Cue media fact checkers wrote Ms. Schow. The fact checkers point to “experts” who have “debunked” Cotton’s claims.

Except they have “debunked” things Cotton never said.

The Washington Post is the most recent to “fact check” Cotton, quoting him saying one thing and experts talking about something else. The Post included two quotes from Cotton.

“We don’t know where it originated, and we have to get to the bottom of that,” Cotton said on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures.” “We also know that just a few miles away from that food market is China’s only biosafety level 4 super laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.”

During that same interview, noted Ms. Schow, Cotton acknowledged that the U.S. needs more information from China about where the disease originated.

“Now, we don’t have evidence that this disease originated there, but because of China’s duplicity and dishonesty from the beginning, we need to at least ask the question to see what the evidence says,” Cotton said. “And China right now is not giving any evidence on that question at all.”

Nowhere in those interviews does Cotton suggest China hand-made the disease in those labs, yet that is what the “fact checkers” are debunking. The New York Times and The Daily Beast also “debunked” the claims that Senator Cotton did not in fact make.

Sen. Cotton is right, we don’t know the origin or the coronavirus because the Red Chinese government has been lying about it from the beginning. What’s more, Red China appointing People’s Liberation Army Maj. Gen. Chen Wei, a general with a bioweapons background, to take a leading role in the effort to contain the coronavirus is something that the “debunkers” conveniently ignore as evidence of a possible bio weapons link.

Sen. Cotton’s four hypotheses about the origin of the virus: One, that the virus came from natural causes. Two, that the virus was accidentally released from the lab. Three, that it is an engineered bioweapon with an accidental release, and the fourth hypothesis is that it was a deliberate release, all make perfect sense, and each should be vigorously investigated.
