As the COVID-19 pandemic began to grip the global community in the early days of 2020, before the madness truly set in, the world was having a very serious discussion about China’s culpability in the disaster. It was well understood at this time that Beijing was being disingenuous with their data, particularly after Italy was caught off-guard and walloped by the virus.
But, as the crisis grow overwhelming, it became taboo to think critically about the situation. Instead, our every living moment was supposed to be doled out between anxiety, compassion, and obedience. We stopped wondering just how the whole thing began, or where it even truly came from.
New revelations this week are forcing our federal government to revisit the origins of the global pandemic, and the FBI is making a major admission on account of them.
Days after a bombshell report was dropped by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) which concluded that the COVID virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, FBI Director Christopher Wray publicly admitted that his agency agrees.
That doesn’t mean there’s consensus in the Biden Administration, however, even though we’re three years into the pandemic. National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby said Monday that despite DOE’s report, there’s still “not been a definitive conclusion.” It’s probably in a lot of people’s best interests that that point is never reached.

Just days ago, a Chinese virologist proclaimed her belief that the virus was spread intentionally by China.
