AMAC Exclusive – By Seamus Brennan
Just a few weeks before the midterm elections, with most Americans intently focused on the races in key battleground states, the Senate HELP Committee Minority Oversight Staff—overseen by Senator Richard Burr (R-NC)—released an interim report with shocking new details on the origins of COVID-19. Among other major findings, the report (which has received conspicuously little coverage from the mainstream media) confirms what a large bulk of the American public suspected long ago: the virus likely originated in a Chinese lab.
Now, with Republicans set to take control of the House of Representatives in January and the potential for more hearings and investigations, the GOP has a critical opportunity to highlight the extent to which the media and cultural elites, including many within the medical establishment, lied to the public about the origins of the virus, often for transparently political purposes.
The report states that the “hypothesis of a natural zoonotic origin no longer deserves the benefit of the doubt, or the presumption of accuracy… While it is likely that SARS-CoV-2 originated from a bat virus, most likely one found in horseshoe bats residing in Southern China or Southeast Asia, it remains unknown how SARS-CoV-2 traveled more than 1,000 miles from Southern China or Southeast Asia before emerging in Wuhan.”
“Nearly three years after the COVID-19 pandemic began,” the report continues, “substantial evidence demonstrating that the COVID-19 pandemic was the result of a research-related incident has emerged. A research-related incident is consistent with the early epidemiology showing rapid spread of the virus in Wuhan, with the earliest calls for assistance being located in the [area] near the [Wuhan Institute of Virology]’s original campus in central Wuhan.”
The report goes on to catalogue the ways in which the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) “struggled to maintain key biosafety capabilities” at its “high containment” laboratories—including what the HELP committee describes as an “unsafe work environment for laboratory personnel.” The report concludes: “Based on the analysis of the publicly available information, it appears reasonable to conclude that the COVID-19 pandemic was, more likely than not, the result of a research-related incident.”
These findings are particularly notable given that broad segments of the American public were censored, silenced, and blacklisted on social media platforms—and elsewhere—for expressing precisely the same skepticism about the Chinese government’s narrative that the HELP Committee’s report has now essentially legitimized.
Even more disturbingly, throughout the 2020 campaign cycle, Democrats and the entire left-wing media establishment relentlessly insisted that President Donald Trump’s calls for an investigation into the lab leak theory were nothing more than an attempt to spread “racist conspiracy theories.” Once again, President Trump looks to be vindicated, and the mainstream media has been exposed for covering up the truth and facts in an attempt to undermine their political opponents.
The Senate report also further underscores the dangers of Big Tech censorship, particularly in times of crisis. From the onset of the pandemic until May 2021—more than a full year after the first COVID cases were reported in the United States—Facebook, with the blessing of the Biden administration, banned posts that suggested the virus originated in a lab. Likewise, YouTube notoriously banned content and users that refused to follow the approved COVID narrative. Twitter similarly removed posts that failed to toe the line. As journalist Glenn Greenwald aptly put it, “during one of the most consequential and confusing events of the last century—[the] COVID pandemic—Big Tech ensured that nobody on the internet was permitted to express any doubts about or dissent from the decrees of institutions of authority.”
Despite the growing mountain of evidence that runs counter to the Chinese government’s narrative that the virus had natural zoonotic origins, the media has unsurprisingly refused to acknowledge that it—as well as the public health entities it dutifully propped up for two years—were wrong. The World Health Organization has similarly escaped scrutiny, despite dismissing the lab leak theory early on at the behest of the Chinese government and announcing that it needed “no further investigation.”
The implications of this reality should frighten every American. For nearly the entirety of the COVID-19 pandemic, citizens were—and in some cases continue to be—banned from the digital public square because they circulated opinions and information that, to the chagrin of progressives and public health bureaucrats, has turned out to be “more likely than not” true, as the report put it. The aggressive efforts to blacklist ordinary Americans and even a sitting president for sharing accurate information not only cast doubt on the legitimacy of our public health institutions, but are also a foreboding sign for the freedom of speech in the United States.
There are still many questions left to answer. For one, when did leading figures in the medical establishment like Dr. Anthony Fauci know that the lab leak theory was viable? Why did he dismiss it out of hand early on in the pandemic?
Perhaps more importantly, Republicans in Congress should demand answers from the Biden administration about what they are doing to prevent another potential lab leak. Has all U.S. funding for Chinese labs ceased? What is the Biden administration doing to pressure the WHO into holding China accountable?
As trust in the media and public health institutions continues to plummet to startling lows, the individuals in charge of those institutions have nobody but themselves to blame. Addressing the revelations of this latest Senate report and working to develop more substantial answers about the origins of the pandemic that uprooted all of our lives for the better part of two years are important first steps to begin repairing that lost trust—and may be critical to stopping the next pandemic and mitigating the panic and uncertainty that will inevitably come with it.

There’s been plenty of discussion about the origins of the virus in medical journals. Just because y’all are too lazy to look it up don’t mean it ain’t real.
God bless the American Embassy Trump love for Israel Reagan would of been delighted.
And now it’s every thing under the sun. Every time I accidentally let the local news come on it’s “RSV”, FLU, COVID, who knows what else, if you even think you might be feeling sick you should stay home for the holidays. I know it’s all BS to keep family from getting together and discussing what the Government has done and is still doing to us. But what about those who believe these scare tactics and propaganda. When and how are we going to put a stop to it. Living here in the deep blue state of Michigan it may be worse than other places, I sure hope so. And that brings up another subject, how did the communist red scare become blue?
We all know by now that narratives can be bought and we must not forget who benefited the most from this whole mess: Globalists, Big Pharma and Big Government! People don’t realize just how corrupt the medical/industrial complex is. With people on board who know the growing world population is becoming unsustainable, the opportunity to reduce that population, amplify tyrannical political power and gain profit, we can just as reasonably deduce that the entire event was planned. And it’s certainly no accident that the worst adverse reactions to the so called vaccine are in the age group most needed for a strong military! We will be seeing more consequences from reproductive, cardiac and immune system harm for a long time yet to come!
Of course COVID was released from a Communist Chinese lab. My question is was it accidental or on purpose, and if on purpose, why? Could it have been a weapon? If so, aren’t there more lethal weapons the CCP could have used? Or was it designed to destroy world economies?
Not only did the wuflu come from the laboratory, it was released as a biological weapon. The purpose was politically motivated. It did exactly what it was intended to do. That was too make President Trump look bad going into the election and crash the economy. It also made possible all of the voter fraud with the dump boxes and mail in ballots to everybody in the swing states. Even Fraudci told the President that he would be facing a major epidemic during his time in office. How did he know that if he wasn’t directly involved in the release?.
Everything that happened was by design. Covid was just start. It wasn’t covid that was the death weapon. But the death weapon was the vaccines. All of the deaths from covid could have been avoided by using Ivermectin and Hydroxychlorine. Those deaths didn’t need to happen. Big Pharma had a patent on Covid, and you can’t have a patent on a naturally occurring virus. Covid was designed and it has HIV and Malaria in it. People are now finding that they have HIV. This Covid can still cause a lot of harm because of what’s in it, but you still have a 98% Survivable Rate. With the Vaccines, not so much. If we don’t stop this illegal Obiden admin and crew of criminals, then we will never get back America.
“There are still many questions left to answer. For one, when did leading figures in the medical establishment like Dr. Anthony Fauci know that the lab leak theory was viable? Why did he dismiss it out of hand early on in the pandemic?”
Most Americans know the answer to this question: Early on, Fauci didn’t want any of it to come back on himself as it most surreally did in fact, the rest is history…Bye, bye Fauci, the welcome mat has been removed…
My first thought when the leak was announced was ” that was not a mistake!’ I am an octogenarian and have no idea where that thought came from. Strange, but sadly true apparently!
With substantial evidence that all but guaranteed that this man made VIRUS was accidentally? Released from a CHINESE LABRATORY, the collateral damage really hasn’t even begun, this is the greatest crime against humanity and with all the covering up for the countries and people involved with this it’s a disaster, god help all of us if this was not an accident.
We love that AMAC is deeply conservative but carrying the water for Trump and not also other committed conservatives is uncomfortable at the least.
They are just revealing what we knew in the first place, nothing partisan about that.
Who else can stop the marxist take over of America? A politician with no business experience? Another hack or lawyer? We saw what globalist bush did. He was no conservatives. His wife is pro abortion and his daughter campaigned for Hillary
As a nurse I was very suspicious of how fast the first Covid vaccine came out and of all places, CHINA, were the disease came from. Nobody seemed to be on the same page. But than at 70 years of age I’ve lived knowing that communist China could not be trusted.
There will continue to be absolutely ZERO trust of ANY part of this deceitful administration!! ZERO-ZIP- NADA!!
This proves that the liberals and mainstream media are liars and do not want the public to know the truth. And all for political gain. Which also proves they don’t care about we the people. The biggest question is if the media would have been honest, how might the 2020 election turned out?????
Excellent article that FINALLY speaks of the truth!!! Can’t trust our own government, our own scientists and definitely not our own media!!!!!Another victory for President Trump!!!!
Trump was right again! I don’t believe a word that comes out of this administration at all!
Amen to that!
The main thing that happened with the so called pandemic is that it offered the perfect storm for the 2020 elections. They used it to steal the election (read the time magazine article on it just after the election and how they saved their democracy. Now everyone is trying to blame Trump for the 2022 election loss. We haven’t cleaned up our election voting laws, and we need new blood to run the republican party. Well that is the way they see it, but we need a man with vision. So ask yourself did president Trump have vision or not. He predicted the stolen election. In looking at hindsight he should have fired fouchi. But fouchi is still there and probably will still be in 2024. President Trump is a man of vision. And in my opinion should be our next president. I could go on talking about division. We had the senate and house. Not much happened because of in house fighting. Not to mention gas prices, jobs, peace in Middle East, need I go on here. One word here Unity.
Now about Ron DeSantis..
President Trump has a character flaw. It’s name calling and it needs to stop. He called Ron DeSantis, Desantimonous. What president Trump should be doing is calling him up and doing whatever it takes to pull us together as we the people. We need a leader that will lead instead of divide. We The People need a party that will pull together for we the people as a nation instead of for their pocketbook. What we really need is revival in our house, senate and our nation. Because man has brought us to where we are now. It’s easy to sit here and say these things but it’s another thing to lay your life on the line to do the right things in the world we live in today. I for one am ashamed of our governing body as a whole. There are some that will stand up but not many that will support them. So we need unity. Is that even possible today. One thing in the Democrat party is they have unity. Maybe we should look at that and come together in one accord and make a stand. One nation under God. Sounds kind of old fashion doesn’t it. But what if.
Very insightful,,,hope it’s read by many.
Fauci is retiring at the end of the year. He announced it months ago. He wants to be out the door before the Republicans can subpeona him to testify before Congress under oath. So he is sailing into the sunset, with his federal pension intact and millions of dollars from the drug companies in his pocket. No doubt he will end up with a seat on the Board of Directors for either Pfizer or Moderna within 6 months of retiring and collecting some big bucks.
As for your critique of President Trump, stop fixating on the insignificant stuff and focus on all the positive things he delivered that no other President was able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. All in spite of being constantly attacked from all sides by people of both parties, that just wanted to perpetuate the status quo of doing nothing while cashing in and a leftist media who hates every Republican out there.
No, Ronnie is right .Trumps name calling is not insignificant, it’s rather off setting to people . He really needs to tighten his mouth with the insults, etc.. Why? Because though he does have millions of followers, people are getting turned off at what he says, insulting others. And these people are turning Away from him, not going back to follow. There are going to be several others that run for President, and really we need unity and not name calling. No matter Who we are, we need to hold our tongues . The Bible says that the tongue is a two edged sword, It can even kill.Thank you.
Our attorney general GARLAND is starting up another weaponized political attack on TRUMP, It’s pathetic and downright dangerous
Very well stated Paul… People need to stop the anti-Trump Legacy News narrative on all things Trump may or may not have said, quite frankly I can care less. I’m looking for solid leadership skills & the will to get it done, DJT wins that hand in spades, all the other stuff is just that, stuff…
Origins of covid 19 are not shocking That WHO, Fauci and co and all the “experts got away with manipulation lies and ruin they have caused is beyond shocking Where is the Tribunal to deal with the murderers
What does LIKELY mean, get some ba**s IT WAS leaked from the Wuhan lab everyone knows it so just say it.
Almost everything President Trump said was spot on. The left, the MSM and the RINOs diidn’t want to hear it, because they wanted a return to the business as usual status quo.
What no one at the time could have anticipated or known was that Dr. Fauci had in fact authorized the financing, through a third party firm Fauci used frequently, the very virus work being conducted in China’s CCP controlled Wuhan lab that created and then leaked the Covid-19 virus onto the rest of the world. That is just symbolic of the out of control administrative state that exists within our federal government. Where unelected and seemingly completely unaccountable individuals can and do run their own little fiefdoms at taxpayer expense.
That it took 2 years for the Senate to reach many of the same conclusions that President Trump was voicing while he was still in office is just representative of slow and inefficiently the government works with respect to virtually everything. Yes, it is good that Congress, or at least the Senate, finally got around to validating all this information, but I expect it will fall largely on deaf ears. Most of the MSM will bury this news and never report it to the general public, that remains completely ignorant of 95 percent of what goes on in this country and around the world. Instead the MSM will do more “news” on the importance of proper pronouns, how there is no actual crime despite the rising crime rates, how millions upon millions of illegal, illiterate aliens entering our country every year is somehow a good thing, how global warming is the cause of every hot day, cold day, rainy day, snowy day, windy day, etc..
It is amazing that the information presented has been around since the mid 2020 but again the Congress’s snail pace as to protect its cheating benefactors and line their pockets with $$$$$. Most of the medical branch got into the act also.
Congress on its best days is always dragging its feet, so as not to upset the apple cart. Left unmentioned from anything in the GOP report is that China should have suffered significant economic and political consequences for their actions both from the United States as well as the rest of the world. Instead China actually benefitted from the global pandemic that they created and is now stronger today than before the pandemic. Gone are all the measures Trump instituted to stop Chinese spying on American soil, to bring back manufacturing to the United States, and to make us less reliant on China for nearly everything. With Dementia Joe in the WH, China is back in the driver’s seat and we are back to being asleep at the switch.
Even President Trump said that China should have to pay for the pandemic he was mocked and ridiculed for his statement but again he was right. A man of vision. We perish for lack of vision. Wow.
Dear God, we need TERM LIMITS!
What all of this has done to the medical field overall is mind boggling Max… For those that don’t get it, pray you don’t get sick requiring medical assistance & don’t make any plans for international air travel, Y’all may be in for a rude surprise, remember all those MANDATES, there is a reason why there is a major pilot shortage across the entire airline industry…
A shout out to PaulE’s comment too, clearly he gets it…
Best regards to all & wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving on Thursday…
Happy Thanksgiving to you Bill. The biggest downside of this whole mess is the fact that the US establishment was at fault for transferring the virus to the Chinese who “botched” the deal and allowed the virus to “escape” to create havoc on the world. Unfortunately, nothing will be done to bring justice against the perpetrators.
We didn’t transfer anything to the Chinese in terms of the actual virus. What Fauci did was funnel money to a third party that he frequently uses to get around restrictions on certain types of genetic and viral research here in the United States. The third party was merely the go between to shield Fauci from a direct link to the Wuhan lab. As much came out when questioned by Jim Jordan several months ago. The Chinese conducted all the research and developed the virus themselves, with funding that Fauci had supplied through his third party contact. The Chinese being incredibly lax about P3 and P4 safeguards concerning extremely dangerous viruses had yet another lab accident in the same way they did with SARS years earlier. So once the accident occurred, President Xi wasn’t going to have China be the only country suffering from its negative impact, so he allowed and some say even encouraged international travel by infected Chinese to all countries around the world. Thus keeping a level playing field and protecting China from severe economic consequences. The whole world got to suffer along with China, who made money hand over fist from the pandemic. All while locking down China internally and using the military to enforce the quarantines.
I will simply add Paul, as I understand it, GOF, i.e. Gain of Function began at Ft. Detrick, here in the states, Through the NIH, with Dr. Anthony Fauci as the acting director sending federal grant money to EHA, i.e. Echo Health Alliance, run by one Peter Daszak, son of the convicted Nazi collaborator over to the Wuhan Virology Labs, in Wuhan China with much of the research conducted by the ” Bat Lady ” with bats collected in the southern provinces of China & injecting there genes into human genes, hence GOF & then experiencing a deadly leak of the pathogen in Wuhan & yes all local air travel in China out of Wuhan was stopped, except for International air travel around the globe, Italy got hammered with the virus & as I remember it, international airfare into the states from Wuhan had already been begun since the fall of 2019, i.e. Sept. or Oct. into our major airports on both the east & west coasts, unfortunately with Dr. Fauci & Dr. Birk professing everything was OK, nothing to worry about, Trump took action in January I believe of 2020 & stopped all airfare from China from entering our country, unfortunately & no fault of Trump btw, it was too little too late, it was already here & the rest is history…Trump got blasted for not allowing Chinese air traffic into the states as it created the ” Perfect Storm ” for the rigged 2020 elections, through the Mail-In Ballot schemes, still with us btw, all the illegal drop box placements by Mr. Zuckerberg himself as he is now dealing with well over 700 lawsuits around the drop boxes as I write this…
100% spot on
Truth, think about it!Yes, there has been collution between the DNC, as well as business dealings, by then VP Joe Biden, and Hunter Biden with China.Yes, WHO has falsely identified COVID as a natural event to protect China and the involvement of other countries, including the United States.Yes, China sits on the board of WHO and helps fund the group.Yes, the DNC went all out when Trump won the 2016 Presidental election. Any lie or distortion has become the political narrative from the DNC.Yes, the pandemic allowed illegal voting to take place in America and as long as any type of unvetted mail-in voting is allowed, at the city, county, state and federal levels, no election results can be trusted, AS THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE!Yes, The DNC will pull out every stop to allow illegal immigrants to vote, and will, if possible, allow them citizenship just to maintain power in America.Yes, the first effect of mass illegal immigrate citizenship will be the end of Social Security. SS will be billions of dollars underwater in the first fiscal year of the new citizenship changes that the DNC wants.Yes, the DNC and the Swamp want total power to implement an authoritarian government in America, linked to their eletist one world plan. No God, Individualism, no freedom.Yes, the DNC has unionized K-12 to maintain the indoctrination of American childern to embrace a one world plan and maintain a base level of ignorance needed to maintain control. The DNC beleives they can control ignorance and will continue to incurrage stupidity, the death of common sence and mutual respect, to acheive their one world agenda.Yes, the DNC wants to maintain ‘equality’ guidelines for any higher learning institution. This will maintained funding to colleges and universities and continue the indoctrination of their vision of a one world plan.Yes, Joe Biden has released disinformation on multiple occasions just like Pelosi, Schumer and every other ranking Democrate in this government. Biden once told the American people that they must not confuse facts with truth, even though any right minded person knows facts are truths!Yes, Joe Biden is compromised from his and his son’s business dealings and his naturally deminished mental state, allowing him to be completely manipulated by the unelected government living in the Swamp, the infected branch of our government that is almost completly managed by the elistest DNC.Yes, the DNC is responsible for the development and release of COVID. Their one world plan has one profile that concluded that anyone over the age of 40 that was educated prior to the unionization of American K-12 and is not completely dedicated to the DNC is a threat to their one world plan and needs to be managed.Yes, the world population is reaching a critical level, now at 8 billion plus. The DNC and their one world platform are using climate as a cause for this platform. They use scientific guidelines related to the carbon levels as the enemy to mankind and that fossil fuel emissions are solely responsible. Fact, carbon dioxide has a carbon weight of over 23%. Carbon monoxide has a carbon weight of just over 4%. Catalytic converters convert carbon monoxide into carbon dioxide, which has 6 times the carbon weight. So, because of the air cleaning attachment required on any internal combustion engines we are adding 6 times the carbon weight into the air, than we did 40 years ago. Every creature on this planet breaths in air, oxygen, and exhales carbon dioxide. This is the highest carbon adders, not cows, not cars, it is the population that has brought about the climate concerns we are facing today. Is the DNC and GOP aware of this, yes. The difference is the GOP wants to identify the impact and work toward a resolve. The DNC wants a one world elistest plan to dictate change, which in their minds justifies the lies and deceit they are generating continuously.Yes, the DNC feels working with China, one of the major overly populated countries, will help curb the population, climate and the coming world food shortages. Like all elistest, they know what’s best for everyone else. Their plan will work, but it has never been tested and is being worked in a political vacuum with other eletist cheering them on.Yes, China is dangerious to any American interest. We have been allowing China and other foreign nations and individuals to purchase property in America, why? The members of the GOP are aware of these events as well; however, todate haven’t prevented it from continuing, why? That’s why all Americans have to get involved put a stop to this attack on the solverenty of America at every level, city, county, state and federal. The DNC wants this to continue so, it will make their one world plans move steady across our country.Yes, you should question everything noted here in and then ask questions on everything that concerns you. Send tweets, Facebook links, text messages, emails or call every government representative in your city, county, state and your states federal represenatives, regardless of political party and ask your questions. If these represenatives are aware that you are thinking these issues through maybe it will instill enough concern in them to realize their elistest plans aren’t under cover anymore! Let them know you are looking for the TRUTH!
Ty… I though I was bad with the occasional long winded comment. You beat me by a wide margin with a well thought out factual based opinion, an honest opinion I might add…
Thank you because more people need to still be made aware of what has actually transpired here because it has NOT stopped & it won’t stop until We The People hold these evil people accountable through the process of voting them out of office with hopefully some arrests along the way…
All the best,
Probe should bear out even more
I think Biden with the help of Pelosi colluded with their buddy Xi and did it intentionally and the FBI helped.
It’s amazing how 80% of Congress and the Senate are Lawyers and remain oblivious to the facts.
