2022 is about to end, and still no answer to the question: What caused the virus that’s killed 1,096,000 Americans so far?
The Washington Post asks, “What is China hiding?” The more answerable question is what is our own government hiding?
House Republicans are promising that when they assume the majority in January, they will get answers using subpoena power. Better late than never. Learning more about the origins of COVID may be the most consequential outcome of the 2022 midterm election.
The Biden administration apparently doesn’t want answers. After the U.S. was attacked on 9/11/2001, Congress created an independent panel to get to the bottom of it. In March, the Senate health committee approved plans for a similar 12-member, bipartisan panel of experts with subpoena power.
Former Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, who sponsored the bill to create the 9/11 Commission, called on President Joe Biden to support the new effort. Democrat Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, the bill’s co-sponsor, made an impassioned appeal for it. But Biden remains silent.
Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) won’t move it to the floor for a vote, and the White House is reported to be privately resisting it.
What is the president afraid of uncovering? Is he compromised by his family’s lucrative deals in China?
Determining the origins of COVID should not be a partisan mission, but apparently it is.
Republican Mike Turner (R-Ohio), who will chair the House Intelligence Committee, is vowing to expose how the federal government pressured social media platforms to suppress debate and censor postings suggesting that COVID leaked from a lab. That was an unprecedented assault on America’s freedom of thought.
It’s possible that the virus was a biological weapon in development at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Last week, House Republicans released a report charging the U.S. intelligence community with “misleading” the public on “key issues” including possible connections between the Wuhan lab and China’s biological weapons program. Stay tuned for hearings to uncover these deceptions.
House Republicans also announced they will probe why the National Institutes of Health continues to fund Chinese labs, sending $8.9 million in 2021 and $5.6 million in 2022.
A proposal to prohibit the NIH and CDC from funding labs in China is provoking protests from scientists who say it will discourage global cooperation.
What cooperation? China withheld blood samples of early COVID victims, thwarted a World Health Organization inquiry and muzzled its own scientists. China behaves like the adversary it is. It should have to follow international rules of cooperation and data sharing before it qualifies for funding.
Anthony Fauci told Congress that Chinese scientists working at the Wuhan lab under NIH grants are “very competent and trustworthy.” They may be nice guys and gals, but the Wuhan lab is under the control of the Chinese Communist Party. No one there is free to deal honestly with the U.S.
House Republicans on the Select Intelligence Committee are pledging to expose how tax dollars granted to universities here end up funding research projects at China’s Academy of Military Medical Sciences Fifth Institute, a known component of its bioweapons program. Do you think the Chinese government is sending money to support research at Annapolis or West Point?
Too many scientists and intellectual elites are captives of naive globalism. Their loyalties are misplaced and their judgment is clouded.
Fauci, in addition, has to cover his own tracks. In September, Fauci’s NIH awarded another $653,392 grant to the EcoHealth Alliance, the nonprofit that used a previous NIH grant from Fauci to fund the research behind the suspected leak.
More money for EcoHealth, even though its CEO, Peter Daszak, has failed to provide the laboratory notebooks and electronic files from Wuhan that could shed light on whatever accident occurred there.
Millions died from COVID, but Fauci’s buddy gets his money.
Fauci and Daszak will be on the hot seat under oath when the House Republicans launch hearings in the new Congress.
2023 may turn out to be the year when grieving Americans finally get answers. Simply moving on is unacceptable.

Biden doesn’t know what he is hiding as he cannot remember from one day to the next all of his crooked dealings. He doesn’t remember today, what he said yesterday.
What’s Biden Hiding?
The CCP are sly as a Fox.
Nothing in this world happens without some point of human intervention. “” NOTHING “”
NEVER EVER FORGET THAT … It may save your life one day. To the point now.
Why have the Chinese ( CCP ) not taken any action against Taiwan since Trump exited ?
answer : they can afford to wait. They are the BIG DOG ON THE BLOCK NOW ..
Why Did Biden so tragically exit Afghanistan in his first year ? Because he was told to by the ( CCP )
They wanted in there to reap what we had planted. and take over the Opium drug trade with the Taliban and the Afghan Gov’t. as well one last little point here… Afghanistan has the great deposits of LITHIUM ORE IN THE WORLD. what do you make out of Lithium? ELECTRIC CAR BATTERIES.
Why is BIDEN SO INSISTENT THAT THE US TERMINATE ALL USAGE OF FOSSIL FUELS?
THE ( CCP ) NOW OWN AFGANISTAN ! 1000% .. and they will never leave. Using our air bases and military hardware to enforce their policies and rule. Thankyou again JOE great job at selling out the US. Wonder how much they deposited in HUNTERS offshore account for that deal. I would guess 1 Billion. Our military knew of it before it happened. Guess who landed the first plane load of military advisors once our last US plane flew out of Afghanistan that day. YOU GOT IT ( THE CCP ) .
Some news service was on hand privately photo’ing the landing and the arrival of the ( CCP ) military advisors man they were ready and knew exactly when to arrive less than 2 hours after our last plane lifted off, it was kept 100% quiet by the US media.
Why did Biden visit the Saudis only weeks before XI ( CCP ) arrived? Because the ( CCP ) wanted it that way. They then had leverage to threaten the Saudis and offer behind the curtain deals that Biden had set in place for them. Planes Trains and weapons. use your imagination people. NOTHING HAPPENS WITHOUT SOME LEVEL OF HUMAN INTERVENTION.
The ( CCP ) are sly like a Fox. These ( CCP ) elite whomever they are, have endless lives, total access to human body parts on demand. Young healthy men and women snatched off the streets in dead of night or out of hotels or homes as body part donors at will. If you can’t believe this you are a fool. It has been going on for years they have developed a grand scheme and perfected it, Tranplants. If you need one you should call the Bejing or Hing KONG consulate and see if you can get an appointment . :) but it might be a one way trip .
Some reading this may say this all BS… then go put your heads back into the sand and hide and watch. If it benefits the ( CCP ) even one ounce or one GRAM, they will do it. Like putting the name of a computer ( HP ) that they have created which was originally built in the US, it is nothing but a knockoff as we know but they don’t care, who is going to stop them. How about the microchips they inserted into the copy machines they sold to the US Govt. They get a picture of every document being copied sent to a live duplicate somewhere in the world in a huge warehouse. Manned by
( CCP ) officials who are watching for US secrets that they have captured. Ya never hear of this stuff do ya? And it is getting worse. MONEY TALKS FOLKS … JUST ASK OLD GEORGE S.
I love my spell checker… helps so much ( IT TOO WAS INVENTED IN CHINA )
Amen , couldn’t have said it better myself !
Biden remains silent on the issue because his ear buds and teleprompter are both not working [made in China] and he can’t receive instructions from his handlers.
The conspiracy grows! Now, China has opened policing facilities in 54 countries around. Amsterdam and one other country have already thrown them out. Spain is looking very intensely at them.
The police stations were created under the auspices that Covid has restricted the Chinese people living in foreign countries from getting their papers, one being Chinese driver’s license, renewed. But digging deaper , it can be found that they are going after Chinees that have becoome naturalized American citizens. They would not need Chinese driver’s license.
It is clear that they are just an extension of the police state that is in China.They are harrassing Chinese who live in the U.S. trying to get them to return to China, threatening them with harm to their relatives that still live in China.
The U.S. has known since last March. But many governments continue to let the Chinese operate them. There is one in New York City and one in Los Angeles. This is completely illegal. But it is being done “under the rug”, thinking the American people will notice it. We need to shut them down in the U.S.
This needs to be all over the news. But the MSM are complicit to the doings of the Chinese. They are all bought and paid for by the Chinese Communists.
Wake up fellow Americans. We are under attack!
biden is a sneak – he speaks for fork tongue (that of a devil) there are so many things this imposter is hiding that is unlawful bc he is an unscrupulous idiot
Seems to me Fauci expended US taxpayers’ money to have China, our enemy develop biological weapons which killed & harmed a lot of people worldwide. Fauci, a man with his experience and knowledge should have known better. Seems he is backed by JB & the Dems and the collusion & lucrative monetary gain the compromised JB and his crime family has with China. Perhaps the FBI should be investigating this as well as themselves. Instead Fauci has rode off into the sunset with a very generous retirement package which we pay for. I find him like JB, a corrupt liar and both should be in prison. Who is really running our Great Country? Even if Congress does a more thorough investigation of Fauci, the Senate is owned by the Dems & many RINOS, another dead end, nothing will be done.
Now, countries of the world are letting the Chinese open police stations in them, 54 countries at last count. Amsterdam has thrown them out. The other countries need to do the same before it is too late! And they used Covid as the excuse as to why they are doing this. BS!
I read the other day that New York City now has a chinese operated police station. But what else would you expect. This is looney tunes NYC after all.
I have heard that. Can you believe it. I am an old Vet been in many countries including China and never seen a USA military police station. What can we expect when JB & his crime family sold out our great Country by taking financial gains from our enemies. Just listen to Lt Boblinski. Who the heck voted for the lying corrupt JB anyway. I still do not believe he is the President. In addition, can you believe he received 81M votes, more than any President in US history. I do not believe it. The FBI once done investigating themselves should investigate that, but I am afraid they are in cahoots with JB. Sure seems that way to me. Overall, very little representation for us Legal American citizens exists. Our Constitutional rights are eroding very fast by JB & his corrupt administration. Make no mistake, he has sold out our Great Country.
I hear you. Perhaps the Chinese these days are paying a great deal for this. I have been in Amsterdam as well, but a long time ago when I was in the military. Don’t recall the Chinese there at that time. Perhaps we can use the Covid excuse to get all the illegals out of our country as well. Who knows what diseases they are bringing in. America belongs to Legal American citizens, not foreign countries, illegal aliens or corrupt political people who allow our demise.
Both Biden and Fauci are traitors to the United States of America and should be prosecuted and sentenced as any past traitors have been treated. The memories of all the men and women in our military who sacrificed their family life and their lives to protecting our freedom and liberty have been sullied and made irrelevant. Thank you woke America!
Fauci is Faust; Congressional “leaders” are all very rich and very corrupt, government agencies ignore our Constitution and behave like partisan operatives. The only answer: term limits not only for elected officials but for government workers in any level of upper management. A government career creates a lust for $ and power. We have to deny it to all opportunists and we DO now who they are.
After what I have seen over the past few years with the way the FBI was involved in our Elections hiding and lying about the lap top. Covering up Biden family’s overseas deals. The ways they have went after a sitting President of the United States. Who knows what they will do and why. Kennedy was a Democrat and I believe now they went after him. Nothing they do in Washington now surprises me. I do believe now our government is probably more corrupt than we have ever imagined. As proud of this country as I am. I am now sad too. Sad that it has been allowed to have been taken in this direction. God bless and help this Nation. We need it.
I’m interested in knowing when China pays reparations for the billions they have cost the world with theChinaVirus. I expect a check, a large check, a very large check.
Don’t hold your breath. The compromised corrupt JB & his crime family will do nothing for the American people.
There are too many bad characters who have jb by the gonads. You can see it is a precarious position to be in if one values their life and the family jewels….sheesh
It’s time to clean house then and reestablish our Republic. Where is our Intel, FBI, CIA, Justice Dept? All seem corrupted as well. If JB ain’t got a pair, & can’t stand up for our great country, he needs to move on. He can take any corrupt governmental people from the above Intel agencies with him. The Left got the bubble head they wanted in JB and we are left with no representation, the demise of our Constitution and our great country. This is not what we fought for. I am sick of it.
He is bought and paid for by the Chinese through he and his families total corruption. He needs to be impeached and put in jail. But the criminals now have control of the system. ANd the MSM is just as corrupt and complicit withthe Chinese.
Its a fact; Biden is definitely “HIDEN” many issues and condoning dangerous policies ie
Dtug smuggling, fentanyl deaths, sabotaging America , doing his best
To take our freedoms away and much much more!!
ONLY ONE SURE AND PERMANENT WAY TO STOP THE CANCETOUS, ANTI-AMERICAN, CHEATING , LYING, libs AND ITS NOT THRU ELECTIONS
WHY IS THIS CANCEROUS TUMOR, joe biden NOT IN JAIL ? THIS MALIGNANT TUMOR BREAKS THE LAW AND his OATH OF OFFICE EVERY DAY BY ALLOWING 12 MILLION illegals A YEAR TO ENTER OUR ONCE GREAT NATION, AGAISNT THE LAW,
What’s Biden hiding?
Entire books can be written in answer to that question. And to sum up, none of it is good and most of it has been illegal and/or treasonous.
You can count on this; nothing meaningful will ever get done, and no corrupt politician will answer for their crimes against the American people.
He is hiding the truth on…you pick the subject…
He’s trying to protect China and Fauci.
You R correct.
I doubt that obummer has a clean house.
We DO know MANY things. Biden and Fauci were complicit in this virus doing the virus thing. We know the Vaccines are a Gene Therapy passed and mandated through under Emergency Authorization Act. We Know the Vaccine has serious side effects. We know other G20 countries do not distribute to children or men under 30. We know Biden is ushering in several hundred thousand new foreign folks without health check and no vaccine needed. They bring measles, polio, hiv and
their serious drugs and murderers. We KNOW They spend billions for Ukraine and somehow this is
ALL related to keeping Donald Trump from being president and having a trial on TV for a year with charges. Remember: Twitter just revealed the FBI had media control on all fronts of “misinformation”. Who IS running our country? We know much. It’s just the wrong info. AND
the News CBS, MSNBC or CNN and social media ‘blackout’ the border influx and the
SADS deaths or injury.
Who runs the Media?
What’s Biden hiding? . . . The answer is NOTHING! . . . The Covid shutdown gave that Communist wannabe Biden the excuse he needed to result in the BIGGEST GOVERNMENT POWERGRAB IN AMERICAN HISTORY! . . . And since they basically got away with it they just assume that they can continue to do so because of the spineless Republican Party and ALL AT THE EXSPENSE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! . . . Merry Christmas and make sure you’re bending over when the Government gives it to you!
