(FreedomWire.org) – World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has been avoiding obvious for the Chinese Communists since the pandemic was first loosed upon the world in Wuhan, China in December of 2019. He abandoned any pretense of impartiality and ran interference for his masters in Beijing when the first investigations into the origins of the coronavirus were conducted.

Slowly, over the intervening two years, Tedros has had an epiphany. Indeed, the number of researchers and scientists admitting that the possibility of a lab leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology led to the pandemic is growing as time goes by.

Tedros is also coming around to accepting that hypothesis. He confided to a senior European politician that the most likely explanation was a catastrophic accident at the Wuhan Institute where infections first spread in late 2019.

In essence, it’s now down to a process of elimination. For two years, scientists have been looking for the specific animal species that would have passed the coronavirus to humans. They’ve concentrated on bats, but other mammals have been tested — tens of thousands of them — looking for the “‘zoonotic’ spread” that researchers confidently predicted would show up and solve the mystery of the coronavirus’s origins.

There’s been no sign of the coronavirus spreading from a specific animal species to humans. That doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. But it’s certainly a compelling reason to try and force China to cooperate in the investigation.

Dr Tedros updated member states on the pandemic this month, admitting: “We do not yet have the answers as to where it came from or how it entered the human population.”

“Understanding the origins of the virus is very important scientifically to prevent future epidemics and pandemics.”

“But morally, we also owe it to all those who have suffered and died and their families. The longer it takes, the harder it becomes. We need to speed up and act with a sense of urgency.”

Surprisingly, Tedros called out China for its lack of cooperation.

“All hypotheses must remain on the table until we have evidence that enables us to rule certain hypotheses in or out. This makes it all the more urgent that this scientific work be kept separate from politics. The way to prevent politicisation is for countries to share data and samples with transparency and without interference from any government. The only way this scientific work can progress successfully is with full collaboration from all countries, including China, where the first cases of SARS-CoV-2 were reported.”

Why is this important? Finding the origins of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus will help us better understand the bug and create more effective, safer vaccines. It will also aid us in determining where the next pandemic will come from.

China is not likely to cooperate in any investigation that would show negligence on the part of any Chinese citizen that led to the pandemic. The Chinese Communist Party would be threatened with its survival if it ever became known it not only caused the pandemic but fought fiercely to prevent vital information on the coronavirus from being shared.

It’s going to take a lot more pressure than the Director-General of the WHO can bring to bear on China to unlock the secrets of the coronavirus’s origins.

(FreedomWire.org) – Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis could be a possible 2024 presidential candidate. Now the democrats are making up lies against him to try to ruin his chances.

The White House recently told multiple lies to the media. Here is what they have been saying.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is now allowing healthcare providers — including pediatricians and children’s hospitals — to order COVID-19 vaccines from a federal program for children between six months and 5 years old, a reversal from earlier this week when providers were prevented from preordering doses, White House officials told McClatchy.

This came straight from the White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.

“We are encouraged that after repeated failures by Gov DeSantis to order COVID-19 vaccines even after every other state had ordered, the State of Florida is now permitting health care providers to order COVID-19 vaccines for our youngest children. We believe it is critical to allow parents everywhere to have the choice to get their kids vaccinated and have a conversation with their pediatrician or health care provider. Even though Governor DeSantis reversed course and is now ordering vaccines, we will pull every lever to get pediatricians across Florida vaccines as quickly as possible.”

Several problems with these claims. First, the government doesn’t dictate to doctors or hospitals what to get for their patients. Both Jean-Pierre and the media are casting this as DeSantis wouldn’t “allow” this. Doctors and hospitals were not prohibited from getting vaccines; the only thing DeSantis was saying was that the state wasn’t going to pre-order it, on behalf of the state. As DeSantis said, “Doctors can get it. Hospitals can get it. But there’s not going to be any state programs that are going to be trying to get COVID jabs to infants and toddlers and newborns.”

So, the White House’s claim that DeSantis had somehow forbidden doctors and hospitals to get it was a lie. It was also a lie that he had “reversed course” — he never changed his position.

The Governor’s press secretary Christina Pushaw took them apart.

However, the White House continued to lie, saying “something had changed.”

Pushaw just decimated them.

(FreedomWire.org) – Dr. Anthony Fauci was told by Hugh Hewitt, a radio host, that a significant number of Americans have lost confidence in him and perhaps it’s time to step down. Fauci was quick to disagree with Hewitt.

“No. Absolutely unequivocally no, Hugh. Sorry,” replied the now-81-year-old chief medical adviser to the president.

Hewitt isn’t the only person who’s told him to his face it’s time to go. Sen. Rand Paul has demanded that he should resign during heated testimony, but was not able to persuade him. 

However, Fauci just revealed the one event that will force him to retire.

Fauci responded to CNN’s Jim Acosta a plain “no” when asked if he would work with the 45th president again.

“If Trump were to return to the White House as President, and COVID was still a threat or there was some other public health emergency, would you have confidence in his ability to deal with a pandemic of this nature? Would you want to stay on at your post?” Acosta asked.

“Uh, well, no,” he responded, laughing. 

“If you look at the history of what the response was during the administration, I think, you know, at best, you can say it wasn’t optimal,” Fauci said. “History will speak for itself about that.”

It was Fauci who recommended, “15 days to stop the spread.”  Trump backed the recommendation. Numerous studies showed the lockdowns in Europe and the U.S. had virtually zero benefit.

Democrats love to tell us how much they want to protect the elderly and others with weaker immune systems from COVID-19. But leftist superstar Andrew Cuomo showed on Monday that those words are hollow. Meaningless.

Cuomo announced that he plans to give vaccine distribution priority not to the elderly — but to drug addicts. According to Cuomo, vaccines should be pushed to facilities run by the Office of Addiction Services and Supports.

“These are congregate facilities. Congregate facilities are problematic. That’s where you have a lot of people in concentration,” he says. His logic (if it can be called that) is that while “nursing homes are obviously the most problematic because they’re congregate plus older, vulnerable people,” OASAS drug facilities are “congregate — not necessarily older — but congregate facilities.”

Though New York distributed vaccines to elderly people living in nursing homes last week, those who aren’t in that situation will be forgotten as drug addicts receive priority.

New York state Rep. Elise Stefanik called Cuomo’s plan an “absolute disgrace” and labeled him the “worst governor in America” because of this ridiculous decision.

“This time prioritizing vaccines for drug addicts over tens of thousands of seniors who have been homebound since the start of the pandemic. An absolute disgrace,” she correctly says.

It’s unclear where Cuomo got the idea that this was a good decision. But it’s not the first time recently he has shown disdain for the elderly. Cuomo was recently busted lying about admitting 6,326 COVID-positive people to nursing home facilities. In fact, he issued a mandate requiring nursing homes to accept readmission of COVID-positive residents from hospitals.

It’s clear that Governor Cuomo will go down in history as one of the most irresponsible leaders to ever be in charge of any state. But Democrats? They will continue to praise him.

Democrats have been fighting tooth and nail against supplying Americans with any meaningful stimulus payment to help them weather this pandemic. But finally, in a late Christmas miracle, House Democrats caved and endorsed President Donald Trump’s plan to give each American a stocking stuffer of $2,000.

On Monday, the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives did something shocking — they backed one of President Trump’s plans. The 275-134 vote increased the stimulus payments from $600 to $2,000 — a much-needed boon as the Coronavirus ravages our economy. The vote came after President Trump criticized Democrats for refusing to give the American people what an overwhelming percentage demand.

While many members of the House were not in Washington, proxy voting allowed the vote to happen. Democrats have spent months bickering and refusing to play ball with Republicans, who have dutifully attempted to pass something that would help the American people. After Democrats’ gamesplaying resulted in months of delays and an initially tiny stimulus, President Trump put his foot down and vetoed the bill. Now, thanks to his adamance in support of Americans, the bill moves on to the Senate.

President Trump echoed Americans’ sentiments on Tuesday morning with another call for a $2,000 stimulus. “Give the people $2000, not $600,” he said. “They have suffered enough!”

It’s unclear what will happen — if Americans will get the $2,000 stimulus — but Republicans control the Senate. This means there is hope that something will truly be accomplished to help hardworking Americans weather this disaster.

Democrats have been delaying Americans getting the help they need by attempting to jam their agenda into every attempt Republicans have made to help the American people and the lifeblood of the nation: small businesses. Now, President Trump had told Democrats that there will be no more games with the COVID-19 stimulus. President Trump has asked Mitch McConnell to stop negotiating with them altogether, and he has said that he will only sign a single bill: one that provides the American people with a $1,200 stimulus payment. Nothing else. No games, no special interests, just pure aid.

On Tuesday, President Trump killed discussions of a stimulus aid package, and with it Democrats’ hope of randoming the good of the American people against their desires to pack the bill with their wildest, craziest desires. The President says that he still plans a major aid package, but that will come after he wins the election. “I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” the President says.

President Trump later added that he will only sign a “Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200).” He issued a challenge to Democrats, specifically Nancy Pelosi: “I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?”

Liberals recently celebrated as the leader of the free world was diagnosed with COVID-19. In spite of their disgusting displays of hatred and intolerance, President Trump did what he always does — he won. Not only did he beat the virus, but he recovered remarkably quickly. As of Wednesday, he was reporting no symptoms and an almost complete recovery.

Twitter has taken a hard stance against liberals who are publicly saying Donald Trump should die of COVID-19. Ever since the President was rushed to Walter Reed hospital after contracting the virus, the Left has done what it does best: spew hatred aimed at someone they hate. But Twitter has said “enough!” Now, liberals who publicly say Trump should die of COVID-19 (or for any reason) will find themselves with a suspension from the platform.

Though Twitter is typically lenient when enforcing this little-known rule, the social media platform does specifically outlaw language that wishes serious harm on anyone — whether it’s an individual like President Trump or a group of people like his supporters.

Wishing or hoping serious harm on a person or group of people

We do not tolerate content that wishes, hopes or expresses a desire for death, serious bodily harm or fatal disease against an individual or group of people. This includes, but is not limited to:

Hoping that someone dies as a result of a serious disease e.g., “I hope you get cancer and die.”

Wishing for someone to fall victim to a serious accident e.g., “I wish that you would get run over by a car next time you run your mouth.”

Saying that a group of individuals deserves serious physical injury e.g., “If this group of protesters don’t shut up, they deserve to be shot.”

Twitter clarified that any comments that meet that criteria — most comments liberals direct toward the President and his supporters — will “need to be removed” and could lead to suspension if the remark is serious enough.

Similarly, Facebook will be handling hateful remarks directed at the President. The company’s comms director, Liz Bourgeois, says that Facebook will remove death threats or comments wishing death on the President

Chinese-owned Tik Tok also made a surprising move in announcing that hateful remarks toward the President will not be tolerated. A spokesperson for Tik Tok told CBS that  “content that wishes the death of any person, including the president, violates our community guidelines, and we remove such content as we become aware of it.”

President Trump’s health has been steadily improving since his diagnosis. While he was on supplemental oxygen for a brief time, his fever disappeared by Saturday. He no longer has shortness of breath and is able to walk without issues following two doses of Remdisivir. It’s unclear when he will be released from the hospital, but unlike the Left we will keep him in our thoughts and prayers.

On Friday, America received some terrible news: President Donald Trump and his wife Melania tested positive for COVID-19. With less than 32 days until the election, the President and Melania learned of their condition following advisor Hope Hicks’ Coronavirus diagnosis. Now many are asking that we please pray for Donald and Melania Trump.

The President made the announcement on Twitter, where he received a flood of wellwishing and prayers.

The president remains mostly asymptomatic with some very mild symptoms, but the diagnosis is disrupting his campaign at a crucial time. The President canceled plans to fly to Florida for a rally as well as the rest of his schedule. He has also canceled campaign rallies in Wisconsin and Arizona. It’s unclear if the next debate, scheduled for October 15, will happen.

“The president and first lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence,”  White House physician, Dr. Sean P. Conley, says of the diagnosis, assuring the American people that President Trump will “continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering.” Chief of staff Mark Meadows says that the President is “not only on the job” but “will remain on the job.” It’s unclear if any other White House staffers have tested positive.

People 65-74 are five times more likely than younger adults to be hospitalized and 90 times more likely to die from the illness. Right now, Joe Biden is surely privately celebrating the President’s diagnosis. But with the stock market falling in the wake of this terrible news and the country needing a true leader, most Americans are praying that President Trump and his First Lady come out of this OK. Fortunately, the President and the First Lady will receive the best medical care available.

Please join America in praying for President Trump and Melania. Watch a report on the President and First Lady’s illnesses below:
