In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Emails received through a FOIA request show Anthony Fauci knew of evidence pointing to a potential lab leak origin story for COVID-19. Regardless of this evidence, the theory was publicly labelled a 'conspiracy theory' for over a year.

  • Reflect On:

    Why did establishment politicians and mainstream media follow in lockstep with the unfounded theory of 'natural origins' when they had evidence of a potential lab leak?

In February of 2020 we published an article about Dr. Francis Boyle, a law professor who drafted the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act in the United States. He was quite certain that SARS-CoV2 leaked out of a lab unintentionally, or intentionally, and that it was being used as a biological warfare weapon. He went on to state that many will profit off of this pandemic, both politically and financially, especially the pharmaceutical companies. He is still one of many experts in the field, which include a plethora of scientists, who have been voicing their concerns regarding the idea that COVID could have leaked out of a lab.

In the early stages of the pandemic any article written about Boyle was subjected to the wrath of Facebook “fact-checkers.” In fact, any article suggesting that COVID could have leaked out of a lab was deemed “fake news” and called a “conspiracy theory.” Despite presenting legitimate evidence, or simply sharing the opinions of experts in the field, media outlets like Collective Evolution were punished. As a result of these fake news strikes, we lost revenue, content reach and credibility. But as the world is seeing right now, we were not wrong to report these stories.

Here in June 2021, the lab leak theory gains more traction by the day. It’s no longer subjected to “false news” strikes by Facebook for simply discussing it. Yet neither Facebook, other Big Tech companies or mainstream media have done anything to apologize or compensate those who they wrongfully punished just one year ago. This is a great example of modern day censorship, it’s not about truth, but rather silencing information, evidence or opinion that calls into question an “official” narrative. It’s still happening on a massive scale today and one has to ask: how many other “conspiracy theories” or “fake news” claims are actually unwarranted? When will we know if we stick only to mainstream coverage?

Dr. Anthony Fauci was one of many figures publicly brushing off the lab leak theory as a conspiracy, but his emails from last year, obtained recently from a Freedom of Information Act Request, show that he was informed as early as January 2020 that COVID-19 exhibited viral characteristics which could have potentially been engineered in a lab.

In an email to Dr. Fauci sent on January 31 last year, Kristian G. Andersen, head of the Scripps Research Institute, told Fauci that some of SARS-CoV-2’s features “(potentially) look engineered.”

Here is the email in question between Anderson and Fauci.

The line “Eddie, Bob, Mike and myself all find the genome inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory” essentially states that 100% of the people who looked at this data felt that COVID-19 did not evolve on its own, but was likely engineered. From the very get go, this was the initial thought of many highly trained scientists looking at this information – it was a credible hypothesis.

At the very least, these emails suggest that evidence of a lab leak of COVID-19 was existent even as far back as January 2020. This was never a conspiracy theory. Is it possible we are also seeing a massive global cover up around the origins of COVID-19? It’s possible, but one thing is clear, establishment politicians and corporate deeply failed at looking into this story, and punished alternative media who did.

“With the Fauci emails out, more are realizing just how unscientific this entire COVID process has been. In fact, you could argue it has been anti-science and based on an authoritarian world view. The MSM was of course complicit in doing no real journalism to figure this out.” – Joe Martino

PolitiFact recently retracted what they called a “pants on fire” fact check from September 2020 that labelled a Hong Kong virologist’s claim that COVID-19 was a lab-created virus a “debunked conspiracy theory.” This ‘fact check’ was placed on our article about her claims as well. We were handcuffed by PolitiFact and told we had to change our article and headline to match their claims. We made our changes and added “This article has been updated and corrected” at the top in order to get our Facebook reach back that is removed when you receive a ‘fact check.’

So why did researchers change their minds about the COVID lab leak theory? It’s tough to say. Kristian G. Anderson has distanced himself from the lab leak theory as much as possible it seems. Him and his team eventually published an article in Nature Medicine which said they believed it was not plausible that COVID-19 was engineered and leaked from a laboratory. The paper also stated that it is not possible to prove or disprove theories of its origin.

Anderson’s paper was published in March 2020, about one month after the controversial Lancet publication that came out stating that COVID’s origins are natural, with it’s authors stating “We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.” The Lancet letter was controversial because no conflict of interest was cited in the letter. Yet, lead author Dr. Peter Daszak, president of the EcoHealth Alliance of New York, runs an organization that funds coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. This means Dr. Daszak would at least be partly responsible for COVID leaking from that lab if it was made there and in fact had leaked. But this stark conflict of interest was never claimed in the Lancet letter. However, this letter became the authority that encouraged the world not to consider lab origins – at least not publicly. Perhaps this letter was why scientists like Anderson decided to ‘flip’ on their theory and distance themselves from the ‘lab leak’ theory.

An email from Dr. Peter Daszak, to Fauci on April 18, 2020, roughly six weeks after the outbreak sprung in the US states:

“As the Pl of the ROl grant publicly targeted by Fox News reporters at the Presidential press briefing last night, I just wanted to say a personal thank you on behalf of our staff and collaborators, for publicly standing up and stating that the scientific evidence supports a natural origin for COVID-19 from a bat-to-human spillover, not a lab release from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

From my perspective, your comments are brave, and coming from your trusted voice, will help dispel the myths being spun around the virus’ origins. Once this pandemic’s over I look forward thanking you in person and let you know how important your comments are to us all.”

Fauci responded to the email saying:

“Peter:

Many thanks for your kind note.

Best Regards,

Tony”

The evidence is not yet clear for any form of global coverup around COVID-19’s origins, but it would be foolish to dismiss the idea. What we do know is that many players were taking the lab origins theory seriously until it became publicly labelled as a ‘conspiracy theory.’ Perhaps they still took the theory seriously behind the scenes.

More recently, on May 14th, 2021, 18 researchers published a letter in Science arguing that the idea of SARS-CoV-2 leaking from a lab in China must be explored more deeply.

Fauci’s tone has also changed as of late. He came under intense scrutiny over the past month where he was questioned by US lawmakers, including Rand Raul, in multiple hearings. He stated that he wasn’t convinced (anymore) of the natural origin theory and that ‘I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened.”

Why the sudden flip? Who knows. Perhaps they are playing catch up to a story that grew in the public eye too quickly, or perhaps there are political motives. Might this new inquiry be used to facilitate further tension between nations, mainly China, for ulterior motives? Is the debate really about actually finding out about the origins of COVID, or is something else going on here?

The interesting part as always is, humanity seems to have a difficult time exploring controversial subjects. Why can’t we come together honestly and openly and search for truth, together? The claims in many of Fauci’s emails call for a ‘togetherness’ in defeating COVID, yet actions say something else. Is it because truth, in today’s day and age, will expose other factors about our world, and perhaps this pandemic that will reveal what type of world we are truly living in?

An uncovered Australian report performed by their Department of Defence. “Scientific Intelligence — General — Unidentified Flying Objects” is trending again. Those who have done extensive research on UFOs will find the Australian version of disclosure to be far more intellectually honest than the American version. Albeit it was conducted decades ago.

According to ex-US intelligence official Luis Elizondo, the Defense Department’s Inspector General is presently conducting three reviews. The inquiries vary from the Department of Defense’s handling of UFO claims to Elizondo’s alleged whistleblower retribution. The open IG cases are crucial to Australia’s report because they establish beyond a shadow of a doubt that the US Department of Defense is being dishonest and shady when it comes to the UFO subject. For decades, Australia has been a loyal friend of the United States. Within Australia’s boundaries, they share a military installation (Pine Gap). When a close defense ally’s intelligence agencies determined that the US was not being intellectually honest in its approach, perhaps it is reasonable to conclude that there is more to the tale than the 144 incidents studied since 2004 by the UAPTF.

The CIA became alarmed at the overloading of military communications during the mass sightings of 1952 and considered the possibility that the USSR may take advantage of such a situation.

Australian UFO study.

According to the summary, OSI, acting through the Robertson-Panel, encouraged the USAF to use Project Blue Book to publicly “debunk” UFOs. In a tragic twist of fate, when Australian authorities sought explanations from the US Air Force, the allegation was debunked. The authors of the study were depicted as conspiratorial and even crazy by the US Air Force. Ross Coulthart reported this, and it may be heard in a recent Project Unity interview. Courthart is an award-winning investigative journalist who is drawn to forbidden subjects. He also stated on the same podcast that a senior US Navy official identified as Nat Kobitz told him that the US had been in the midst of reverse-engineering numerous non-human craft. According to his obituary, Mr. Kobitz was a former Director of Research and Development at Naval Sea Systems Command.

PGA Tour To End COVID Testing For Both Vaccinated & Non-Vaccinated Players

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The PGA Tour has announced that it will stop testing players every week, regardless of whether they have been vaccinated or not.

  • Reflect On:

    Are PCR tests appropriate to identify infectious people? Should people who are healthy and not sick be tested at all, anywhere?

Before you begin...

The picture you see above is of John Rahm, a professional golfer on the PGA tour being carted off the golf course after tournament officials told him he had COVID. He was healthy and had no symptoms, yet was forced to withdraw from the tournament. He was told in front of the camera’s, and a big scene was made out of the event. You would think something like that, especially when you are a big time sports figure, would be done behind closed doors with some privacy.

Earlier on in June a spokesperson for the PGA Tour said that more than 50 percent of players on the PGA tour have been vaccinated. Although it seems that the majority of players on the tour will be fully vaccinated judging by this statement, it does leave a fairly large minority who won’t be, and that’s something we’re seeing across the globe as COVID vaccine hesitancy remains high for multiple reasons.

We are pleased to announce, after consultation with PGA Tour medical advisors, that due to the high rate of vaccination among all constituents on the PGA Tour, as well as other positively trending factors across the country, testing for COVID-19 will no longer be required as a condition of competition beginning with the 3M Open. – PGA tour Senior VP Tyler Dennis

The tour recently announced that the testing of players every week will stop starting in July for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated. This was an unexpected announcement given the fact that, at least it seems in some countries, vaccinated individuals will enjoy previous rights and freedoms that everyone did before the pandemic. Travelling without need to quarantine and possibly in the future not having to be tested could be a few of those privileges. Others may include attending concerts, sporting events, or perhaps even keeping their job depending on whether or not their employer deems it to be mandatory, if that’s even legally possible. We will see what happens.

Luckily for professional golfers, regardless of their vaccination status they won’t have to worry about testing positive for COVID, especially if they’re not sick. This is the appropriate move by the PGA tour, who is represented by their players and it’s a move that the players themselves may have had a say in. It’s important because PCR tests are not designed nor are they appropriate for identifying infectious people. A number of scientists have been emphasizing this since the beginning of the pandemic. More recently, a letter to the editor published in the Journal of infection explain why more than half of al “positive” PCR tests are likely to have been people who are not infectious, otherwise known as “false positives.”

This is why the Swedish Public Health agency has a notice on their website explaining how and why polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests are not useful for determining if someone is infected with COVID or if someone can transmit it to others, and it’s better to use someone who is actually showing symptoms as a judgement call of whether or not they could be infected or free from infection.

PCR tests using a high cycle threshold are extremely sensitive. An article published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that among positive PCR samples with a cycle count over 35, only 3 percent of the samples showed viral replication. This can be interpreted as, if someone tests positive via PCR when a Ct of 35 or higher is used, the probability that said person is actually infected is less than 3%, and the probability that said result is a false positive is 97 percent. This begs the question, why has Manitoba, Canada, for example, using cycle thresholds of up to 45 to identify “positive” people?

When it comes to golf, the fact that spread occurring in an outdoor setting is highly unlikely could have been a factor, but it’s also important to mention that asymptomatic spread within one’s own household is also considerably rare. It really makes you wonder what’s going on here, doesn’t it?
