Well, that's one for the books.

I guess it means they will lie in unison.

We already know the truth, and it's long past time for Congress to catch up with the crime that has been perpetrated against humanity:

Whether they do, and whether they disclose the truth to the world, is another matter entirely.

However, we can continue to spread whatever truth we have uncovered on our own:

Anytime Congress does anything unanimously, you can be certain they have nothing to lose and/or something to gain. Nothing happens in this government without a purpose that either makes things worse for us or better for them. Something is fishy, as always.

That's my first thought as well. Do they really want to go down a path that might include a genuine "search for the truth" on the origins of this virus? Having Redfield testify showed the danger of this. He said he now knows there were people being infected in "September" 2019. This flies in the face of the CDC's comments from a May 29, 2020 press conference when he and other CDC officials said flatly that there was no evidence of infections in America until "late January" 2020. Wherever the virus originated if people were infecting and spreading virus in September, the virus would have spread all over the world by at least November. I think they are trying to restrict the hypothesis to spread starting in Wuhan in November or December and almost certainly originating from the WIV. Maybe this was the source of "case zero" in the world, but that "case zero" wasn't infected in November or December 2019. My theory is, for some reason, officials are intentionally concealing early cases outside of China.

That the virus first emerged in Wuhan is fairly well established by the epidemiological evidence. Contrary to popular belief there is no "cryptic transmission" of infectious respiratory pathogens, so if it's spreading people are getting sick, and people got sick first in Wuhan.

Exactly when it emerged is a different question. The official Chinese line is it emerged in late December, largely capitalizing on the fact that's when the world first noticed.

What China has not admitted and still needs to account for are the very specific actions they took to spread the virus and weaponize the pandemic.

What Fauci, et al, need to acknowledge is the degree to which they enabled and facilitated the activities of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

There are no good guys here.

There is far more "epidemiological evidence" that the virus was spreading in America in November and December than in Wuhan. That is, if one counts positive antibody results (and obvious Covid symptoms) as "evidence" of Covid.

There were no outbreaks of influenza like illness of any note before late December, and even the possible early wave of COVID in Los Angeles was written off at the time as seasonal flu.

Also, given the international travel between Wuhan and the US, scattered instances of antibodies are not nearly as dispositive as some are wont to believe.

For week 3 (ending Jan. 18 - Influenza Activity Estimates: Widespread except for Oregon (Washington?) and D.C. -

During week 4 (January 19th – January 25th, 2020), the majority of the U.S. reported High influenza activity. The proportion of outpatient visits for ILI was 5.7%, which is above the national baseline of 2.4%.

Week 6 (Feb 2 - 8th)

During MMWR Week 6, public health surveillance data sources indicate high intensity for influenza-like illness (ILI) in outpatient settings reported by Ohio’s sentinel providers.

During week 5 (January 26th – February 1st, 2020), the majority of the U.S. reported High influenza activity. The proportion of outpatient visits for ILI was 6.7%, which is above the national baseline of 2.4%. (2.79 X increase).

This town is 50 miles from my hometown. This reports what I vividly remember - as myself and my two children were sick in this same time span, like half the town seemed to be:

Chalk Talk: Flu season could be peaking in Alabama

Flu season could be peaking in Alabama, particularly in the southeast. Based on state and national statistics, children seem to be especially susceptible to contracting the illness this year, as compared to years past.

A recent report by the Alabama Department of Public Health shows a sharp increase in flu cases in the last week of January, after rates of influenza-like illness cases dropped in the first two weeks of 2020.

In fact, flu cases in Alabama rose to 9.04% last week, a 41% increase compared to the week before. The trend is true nationwide as well, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In the week ending Feb. 1, 43 influenza or influenza-like illness outbreaks were reported. One outbreak caused the entire Opp City Schools system to close for two days last week shortly after another western Alabama school system closed. Several other schools closed as well.

Southeastern Alabama continues to be hit the hardest, with 12.6% of all doctor visits due to influenza-like illness; that means about 1 in 8 patients were seen for flu-related symptoms from Jan. 25 to Feb. 1.

Jan. 15 -

Dr. Gerald Bechamps, Vice-President of Medical Affairs for War Memorial Hospital and Hampshire Memorial Hospital, said that they’d seen an increase of patient cases with flu-like symptoms in the emergency room.

War Memorial Hospital had a 4.1% percentage of influenza-like illness reported January 11 and Hampshire County Hospital had a 5.3% rate, Bechamps said. The whole nation was double or more than the 2.4% baseline measure. Influenza-like illness is defined as a fever of 100 degrees or more, cough and/or sore throat.

GRAPH: Shows steep increase in number of EM room visits due to ILI - up to 12 percent of such visits on 12/21/19 - about double the 6 percent seen at the end of November.



A tweet from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention from February 18 shows 44 states, including Virginia and Maryland, are experiencing high flu activity according to their latest reports.

"CDC estimates, that between Oct. 1 and Feb. 8, there were at least 26 million illnesses, 250,000 hospitalizations and 14,000 deaths caused by flu," read another tweet from later that same day.


Michigan ILI Activity


(Last week: 2.2%)

Regional Baseline*: 1.9%

A total of 465 patient visits due to ILI

were reported out of 14,387 office visits during this period.

*Regional baseline is determined by calculating the mean percentage of patient visits due to ILI during non-influenza weeks for the previous three seasons and adding two standard deviations

National Surveillance

In the United States, 5.7 % of outpatient

visits were due to ILI. (Last week: 5.1%) This is above the national baseline of 2.4%

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released preliminary burden estimates for the 2019-2020 flu season.

Between October 1, 2019 through April 4, 2020 it is estimated that there have been:

• 39 million – 56 million flu illnesses (mean: 47.5 million flu illnesses).

• 18 million – 26 million flu medical visits

• 410,000 – 740,000 flu hospitalizations

24,000 – 62,000 flu deaths

17 respiratory outbreaks for season at “schools (K-12) and universities. there were 77 at long-term care/assisted living facilities

During the week ending February 1, 2020

Influenza activity level was categorized as geographically widespread2. This is the 10th consecutive week that widespread activity has been reported.

Reports of percent of patient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI3) from ILINet providers was 6.94%, above the regional baseline of 3.20%.


During the week ending December 28, 2019 (week 52?)

• Influenza activity level was categorized as geographically widespread2. This is the fifth consecutive week that widespread activity has been reported.

• There were 9,211 laboratory-confirmed influenza reports, a 74% increase over last week.

Of the 2,849 specimens submitted by WHO/NREVSS clinical laboratories, 398 (13.97%) were positive.

Reports of percent of patient visits for influenza-like illness (ILI3) from ILINet providers was 4.62%, above the regional baseline of 3.20%.

ILI was "widespread" and "severe" in most states in America before late December 2019 ... per CDC and state health agency weekly ILI reports. There were far more people getting flu tests than in any recent flu season (the vast majority of these tests were negative for influenza). I'm going to produce a big article documenting this in the near future, but you couldn't be more wrong about no widespread ILI in America. Scores of schools and school systems shut down because of "flu outbreaks." You think all the antibody tests results were wrong? The CDC's own antibody test of Red Cross blood (blood taken Dec. 13-16, 2019) found 2.03 percent positives in donors in CA, WA and OR. Those people were infected in November as it takes 1 to 3 weeks for detectable levels of antibodies to form.
