I do not believe anything published by the Washington Examiner, the newspaper founded by the late head of the Moonies. The publication has tried to taken seriously over the years. But it still publishes a bunch of Right Wing nonsense.
Such as Dr. Anthony Fauci being a virus conspirator and friend to folks at China's Wuhan Institute of Virology. While serious investigations are still on ongoing, most scientists believe the Covid-19 virus is one of several naturally occurring coronaviruses. SARS is a coronavirus as well. Why is the latest called Covid-19? Because it was discovered in 2019.
In other words, it did not come out of a lab.
"But just last year, the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, the organization led by Dr. Fauci, funded scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and other institutions for work on gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses.......
.....Many scientists have criticized gain of function research, which involves manipulating viruses in the lab to explore their potential for infecting humans, because it creates a risk of starting a pandemic from accidental release.
SARS-CoV-2 , the virus now causing a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in bats. U.S. intelligence, after originally asserting that the coronavirus had occurred naturally, conceded last month that the pandemic may have originated in a leak from the Wuhan lab. (At this point most scientists say it's possible—but not likely—that the pandemic virus was engineered or manipulated.)"
Ever hear of FactCheck dot org? It's a website that debunks lies and on-going conspiracy theories. The website published a story on this "Dr. Fauci is liar B.S." on May 15, 2020 and updated it on June 18, 2020.
"The Wuhan Institute of Virology received $600,000 as part of a larger five-year U.S. government grant to a U.S.-based nonprofit studying emerging infectious diseases. But President Donald Trump put the figure at $7.5 million, saying he 'ended it. "
"We asked the White House where the $7.5 million figure may have come from, but we haven’t received a response.
"False claims that the Wuhan lab had received $3.7 million in National Institutes of Health grant money have circulated online after an April 11 Daily Mail story made that assertion and Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz repeated it in a Fox News interview.
"The NIH didn’t award such a grant. Instead, it gave a grant totaling $3.4 million, beginning in 2014, to the U.S.-based EcoHealth Alliance to study the risk of the future emergence of coronaviruses from bats. And EcoHealth distributed $600,000 of that total to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, a collaborator on the project, pre-approved by NIH."

"April 4, 2018
A newly identified coronavirus that killed nearly 25,000 piglets in 2016-17 in China emerged from horseshoe bats near the origin of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV), which emerged in 2002 in the same bat species. The new virus is named swine acute diarrhea syndrome coronavirus (SADS-CoV). It does not appear to infect people, unlike SARS-CoV which infected more than 8,000 people and killed 774. No SARS-CoV cases have been identified since 2004. The study investigators identified SADS-CoV on four pig farms in China’s Guangdong Province. The work was a collaboration among scientists from EcoHealth Alliance, Duke-NUS Medical School, Wuhan Institute of Virology and other organizations, and was funded by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health. The research is published in the journal Nature"
"About NIAID Director, Anthony Fauci, M.D.
Anthony S. Fauci, M.D.
On this we agreeThere is so much nonsense making the rounds of the Internet about Covid-19. What is true and undeniable is that this virus is on its way to killing a quarter of a million people in the U.S. alone.
It affects everyone and medical professionals said it especially wreaks havoc on older ones with pre-existing conditions. It has really clobbered the Black Community and we have people telling others: "Aw, don't worry about it. It's not that serious."
Until it is.
LOL -- ?and?It is really a shame that Fine1952 is pushing one of Donald Trump's worst lies.
At a time when Covid-19 is raging across the country again and at a time when this poster claims to be a healthcare provider.
Trump is a vile individual. He cannot stand it when someone outshines him is why he becomes so vicious to anyone who is more popular than him. And more people trust Dr. Anthony Fauci than they trust Trump. The phony billionaire has a history of lying his rear end off.
This is a link to a story that appeared on the Website of an NBC News affiliate in Florida. It mirrors the research I found independently online. When someone opposes your contention in a news forum, the idea is to read their comment and respond in a mature fashion.
Not act like a six-year old as Fine1952 has on occasion .
