The FBI and a scientific research agency in the Department of Energy confirmed that Covid-19 came from the Wuhan Lab. Finally!
For 3 years, the Chinese Communist leaders, the World Health Organization (WHO), and Dr. Fauci insisted that Covid-19 came from a bat. They belittled anyone who suggested that perhaps it had come from the Wuhan Lab where advanced research was being conducted on the virus.
Do you remember the first time you heard that Covid-19 might have originated in a virology lab in Wuhan, China? For you, it was probably in March or April 2020 when Virology experts not connected with the Federal government suggested the possibility. But our mass media quickly quashed opinions that disagreed with Dr. Fauci and the CDC.
A year later, in May 2021, Fox News reported the Wuhan Lab was likely Ground Zero for Covid. And now, March 2023, top scientists in the FBI and DOE concluded that Covid had to come from the Wuhan Lab.
Of course, the Chinese Communists refused to allow anyone to investigate at the Wuhan Lab. A few scientists at the Wuhan Lab got sick in late 2019. The virus (officially SARS-CoV-2) was discovered in December 2019, which is why it is called Covid-19. Knowing the virus was transmitted person to person, the Chinese took action to try to protect their own citizens. But they did nothing to keep it from spreading to Europe and the United States. (Some claim that was intentional.)
More than a million Americans have died with Covid. And almost seven million worldwide. Almost everyone has lost a relative or friend to Covid. Millions more have been hospitalized or continue to have lingering effects. Our lives were disrupted like never before. Covid changed the outcome of the 2020 election.
Unrelated to Covid, many of our big cities are spending money in ways that defy common sense. Here are two examples from New York City.
The city council is spending $5,000,000 to install 5 toilets for the convenience of tourists. Yes, a million each. For political purposes, each borough will receive one. The one in Manhattan should be placed in Times Square. On New Year’s Eve, with a million people congregated, waiting for hours for the ball to drop, you may not get your turn ‘till February.
And did you hear that New York City is awarding a total of $5,000,000 as a result of the violent protests in the summer of 2020? You probably remember the scenes on television of police cars being burned, protesters throwing bottles and rocks at police, and stores being broken into, ransacked, and burned. So, in gratitude for their dedicated service, NYC will give $21,000 to each police officer who bravely stood up to the rioters.
What? The police won’t get $21,000 each? Then who does get it?
The $21,000 is for each of the rioters. Can you imagine anything nuttier?
Mayor Adams is likely to get several letters like this one, “Mr. Mayor, you don’t know me, but I’m one of the peaceful protesters in 2020. I smashed a window at Macy’s, ran in and grabbed a fur coat and a dozen diamond rings. I really need the $21,000 because I only got $500 when I fenced the rings.”
Well, that’s $10,000,000 in taxpayer funds the New York City politicians are flushing down the sewer.
Historic quotes by Will Rogers:
“Well, as I go to press, everybody is on a trip somewhere if they work for the government. I wonder when the taxpayers take their trip.” WA# 30, July 8, 1923
“It seems the whole idea of Communism, or whatever they want to call it, is based on propaganda and blood. Their whole life and thought is to convince somebody else… The Communist has so many good things he just wants you to join in and help him use some of them.” Saturday Evening Post, Aug. 21, 1926
