Can you believe people still trust the WHO?
At the time this tweet was issued, according to media reports:
… senior medical professionals in Wuhan, filmed by a citizen journalist, say they knew about deaths as early as December and that it was clear the virus was spreading between people.
“We all felt there shouldn’t have been any doubt about human-to-human transmission,” one doctor said in the footage, broadcast on Tuesday night UK time.
“Actually, at the end of December or beginning of January, the relative of someone I know died of this virus. Many of those living with him were also infected including people I know.”
Another doctor said: “We knew the virus transmitted from human to human, but when we attended a hospital meeting we were told not to speak out. Provincial government leaders told the hospitals not to tell the truth.”
It gets worse:
The doctors claimed that authorities knew the January Lunar New Year celebrations would accelerate the spread of the virus but allowed them to go ahead anyway in order to “present a harmonious and prosperous society”.
“They shouldn’t have allowed any gatherings,” one said. “The provincial and local governments knew the threat but they continued to allow crowds.”
WHO infamously tweeted on January 14 about the virus: “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission.”
By the time WHO issued its first situation report on January 21, at least 278 people in China were infected and the virus had spread to three other countries.
When a company accused of wrongdoing announces that it will conduct an “internal investigation,” the interested public is rightly skeptical. Everyone knows the drill: Asses will be covered and maybe, if the top executives are really feeling the heat, they will offer a sacrificial lamb in the form of a middle manager.
Hiding behind the imprimatur of the WHO, China is, in effect, conducting an internal investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic with the assistance of Peter Daszak, the only American that Beijing allowed to join the WHO team.
That’s right, allowed: According to the Wall Street Journal, the WHO gave Beijing veto power over which American scientists would be appointed to the team tasked with producing a joint report with Chinese scientists on the origins of the virus. Beijing vetoed all three scientists nominated by the U.S. but didn’t object to Daszak, who applied separately.
Media Watch went after Sharri Markson
Expect a big apology from Baul Barry on 31 May 2021 for this effort on 4 May 2020.
UPDATE 31 May, 10:30 pm: NO apology. No acknowledgement of the great journalism she has done.
See some of her most recent work here (behind a paywall – which is only right, this kind of journalism isn’t cheap).
Fauci before the Senate
Fauci: the leading US infectious diseases expert and the most gullible man in the world. Why investigate the Chinese when you can just trust what they say? Watch the to-and-fro between Senator John Kennedy and Fauci here.
Facebook gives you back your right to an opinion
Facebook will no longer take down posts claiming that Covid-19 was man-made or manufactured, a company spokesperson told POLITICO on Wednesday, a move that acknowledges the renewed debate about the virus’ origins.
Joes’s denials … more malarky!
Who would have thought that a corrupt old politician was still old and still corrupt?
Imagine having a great skill like speaking Mandarin …
And then using that skill to suck up to dictator scumbags.
FFS, John Cena, grow a pair you fru-fru-arsed pansy.
Well done, tough guy. You’re officially a cuck.

Hi China, I’m John Cena. I’m in the middle of Fast and Furious 9 promotions. I’m doing a lot of interviews. I made a mistake in one of my interviews. Everyone was asking me if I could use Chinese – [movie] staff gave me a lot of information, so there was a lot of interviews and information.
I made one mistake. I have to say something very, very, very important now. I love and respect China and Chinese people. I’m very, very sorry about my mistake. I apologize, I apologize, I’m very sorry. You must understand that I really love, really respect China and the Chinese people. My apologies. See you.
His mistake was calling Taiwan a country.
Again, Cena, you’re a cuck.
While we’re talking about China, here’s a list of some of the things China has done in relation to COVID-19 (from The Daily Wire):
- Silenced doctors and journalists that tried to alert the world to the pandemic.
- Shut down the Shanghai laboratory where the coronavirus genome was first shared with the world.
- Repeatedly lied that the coronavirus was not transmissible from person to person. This includes lying to World Health Organization on January 14 when it claimed that the coronavirus could not be spread from person to person when it had evidence that it could back in December.
- Threatened numerous nations that have been critical of its propaganda campaign and who have called for international investigations into China.
- Clamped down on allowing any coronavirus research from being made public.
- Spread false information in the U.S. that was intended to cause panic inside the U.S.
- Repeatedly lied about the extent of the coronavirus outbreak in their country, according to top U.S. intelligence officials, estimates from top think tanks, and other foreign governments including China’s own allies. China also has a history of lying about the extent of outbreaks that originate in their country. U.S. officials say that China did this because it bought them time to hoard medical supplies from around the world, which is a well-documented fact. China also reportedly blocked U.S. companies that manufacture in China from shipping medical supplies outside of China. China then shipped faulty medical supplies all over the world.
- Refused to allow CDC and WHO officials into China for months to learn about the coronavirus and to help contain the outbreak.
- The Five Eyes is an intelligence alliance — which is comprised of intelligence agencies from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand — concluded in a research document that China engaged in “the suppression and destruction of evidence” and pointed to “virus samples ordered destroyed at genomics labs, wildlife market stalls bleached, the genome sequence not shared publicly, the Shanghai lab closure for ‘rectification’, academic articles subjected to prior review by the Ministry of Science and Technology and data on asymptomatic ‘silent carriers’ kept secret”.
- Have falsely claimed that the U.S. military brought the coronavirus to Wuhan.
And there is more.
