Senator Tom Cotton says that China is refusing to hand over evidence concerning the bio-safety level 4 research lab in Wuhan despite a new report from biological scientists at the South China University of Technology saying it may have been the source of the coronavirus outbreak.
During an appearance on Fox News, Cotton told Maria Bartiromo that new evidence confirmed the source of the virus was not the meat market in Wuhan.
“Here is what we do know. This virus did not originate in the Wuhan animal market,” said Cotton. “Epidemiologists who are widely respected from China published a study in the international journal Lancet have demonstrated that several of the original cases did NOT have any contact with that food market. The virus went into that food market before it came out of that food market. So we don’t know where it originated… We also know that only a few miles away from that market is China’s only bio-safety Level Four Super Laboratory that researches human infectious diseases.”
Cotton said that China’s “duplicity and dishonesty” meant that questions needed to be asked about the lab but that “China right now is not giving any evidence on that question at all” and Beijing was being “very secretive” on what happens at the lab.
Cotton also accused China of consistently blocking American scientists from traveling to Wuhan to assist in discovering the origins of the virus.
A new report by scientists at the South China University of Technology in Guangzhou, China concludes that “the killer coronavirus probably originated from a laboratory in Wuhan.”
One of the laboratories named in the report which was conducting research on bat coronavirus was located just 280 meters from the site of the Wuhan meat market.
For weeks, the media has demonized anyone who suggested the lab could have been responsible for the coronavirus outbreak as a dangerous conspiracy theorist peddling fake news.
However, now that CNN/NY Times journalist Ezra Cheung tweeted precisely that yesterday, one wonders whether they will begin to change their tune.

If masks work, why haven’t they worked?
Four vaccines later and with even the likes of Joe Biden admitting that the pandemic is over, there are still hordes of people who want to continue to wear face masks and to force others to do the same.
The terms #BringBackMasks and #BringMasksBack are currently trending on Twitter, along with ‘World War III’.
Why? Because these people are still out there:
Well, that was the initial reason the phrases were trending. They continued to trend when everyone else called out the psychotic cult:

Fake Meat Sales Plummet On High Prices, Woke Messaging
A few years ago, life was good for the fake meat industry. Beyond Meat had been given vast amounts of real estate in grocery stores, and had scored a deal with Burger King to sell “Impossible” Whoppers. McDonald’s rolled out a McPlant burger (which was quietly shelved last month). Snarky woke advertisements permeated the airwaves and interwebs as plant-based ‘meats’ were on the rise. In fact, Beyond Meat waas valued at over $10bn in 2019, more than Macy’s or Xerox –with the most bullish investors claiming that plant-based meat would make up 15% of all meat sales by 2030.
Sales of refrigerated meat alternatives at retailers are down 10.5% by volume for the 52-weeks ending September 4, 2022, according to data from Information Resources Inc., or IRI. While higher prices are the top reason for the slide, it’s not the only one, according to Jonna Parker, a fresh food specialist at the market research company. -Bloomberg
“Proteins that were cheaper on a price-per-pound basis did fare better,” said Parker, who noted that semi-vegetarian shoppers who used to opt for the alternative product will now choose the less-expensive real thing. In short, people are less willing to pay a premium for fake meat, especially considering that ‘taste and health concerns’ are playing a role.
According to Deloitte, the fake meat industry has a perception problem. Based on a July survey of 2,000 consumers, there’s been a decline in the belief that plant-based meat is actually healthier and environmentally sustainable vs. meat from animals.
Despite the increasing alarm over climate change, the number of Americans who are vegetarian or vegan has remained relatively stable over the last 20 years. About 5% of Americans in 2018 said they are vegetarian, while 3% are vegan, according to a Gallup poll.
Even when participants in a study conducted at Purdue University in Indiana were given information about the carbon footprint of meat production, participants were more likely to go with regular meat over a plant-based alternative.
Bhagyashree Katare, an author of the study, said that participants may have been put off by the taste of plant-based meat and the fact that it is not necessarily a healthier alternative to regular meat. Many plant-based meat alternatives are comparable to their real meat counterparts in nutritional content. That it costs about the same as meat also diminishes its attractiveness to consumers. -The Guardian
“If I’m spending money in a restaurant, and I’m a meat eater, why would I spend money on plant-based meat? I would rather eat an actual burger,” said Katare. “It’s a technology, and it takes a long time for people to trust the technology and adopt it. I think that’s where plant-based meat is. Maybe the technology will improve, and it will get better health-wise.”
What’s more, the actual market may be much smaller than previously thought – which coincides with a ‘growing cultural resistance to its “woke” status’ – even among people who are trying in earnest to reduce their consumption of red meat.
For example, when Cracker Barrel announced they were adding Impossible Foods’ sausage to its menu over the summer, it faced fierce opposition via social media.
As The Guardian notes, the McDonald’s McPlant burger was shelved last month, as the push to get US meat eaters to switch to plant-based alternatives has proven a challenge.
Multiple chains that partnered with the company, including McDonald’s, have quietly ended trial launches. In August, the company laid off 4% of its workforce after a slowdown in sales growth. Last week, its chief operating officer was reportedly arrested for biting another man on the nose during a road rage confrontation.
It’s a dramatic reversal of fortune. Just two years ago, Beyond Meat, its competitor Impossible Foods and the plant-based meat industry at large seemed poised to start a food revolution. -Guardian
“The bulls in the industry, I think, had a very wild, very optimistic estimate of how big the market could get,” said Mizuho Securities analyst John Baumgartner. “There was a lot of exuberance in this category. It was new, it was different, it was on trend.”
“But the consumer environment is tough, and this stuff is not cheap,” he added.
Year-to-date, Beyond Meat stock is down 77%, and is valued at less than $900 million.This post was originally published at Zero Hedge
Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, Who Claimed Vax Was “100% Effective,” Catches Covid For Second Time in 2 Months
Quadruple-vaccinated Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, who claimed back in April 2021 that his company’s mRNA covid vaccine “was 100% effective in preventing covid,” announced Saturday that he has come down with covid for the second time in two months.
“I have tested positive for COVID,” Bourla said on Twitter. “I’m feeling well & symptom free. I’ve not had the new bivalent booster yet, as I was following CDC guidelines to wait 3 months since my previous COVID case which was back in mid-August. While we’ve made great progress, the virus is still with us.”
Bourla revealed his previous covid diagnosis less than six weeks ago on August 15th.
In November, Bourla said those who spread “misinformation” about his experimental mRNA covid injections are “criminals.”
“Those people are criminals,” Bourla told the Atlantic Council. “They’re not bad people. They’re criminals because they have literally cost millions of lives … The only thing that stands between the new way of life and the current way of life is, frankly, hesitancy to vaccinations.”
Claiming covid vaccines would not stop the spread of covid was previously considered “misinformation” but is now accepted fact. The shots not only do not stop the spread of covid but people who took the shots keep catching covid over and over again.
Bourla would have had us thrown in prison for claiming his experimental mRNA injection didn’t work.
Where’s the apology for this fraud? Where’s the mea culpa?
When are “criminals” like Bourla who spread “misinformation” about their shots’ effectiveness to boost their stock and sell their crap “vaccines” going to be forced to pay out damages to the vax injured and those who lost their jobs for refusing these jabs?
A great crime took place with these forced injections and the perpetrators need to be held accountable.This post originally appeared at Information Liberation
