Lots happened yesterday while I was out fishing. First, new revelations in the WuFlu origin story emerged, showing that Dr. Fauci, in response to scientists telling him virus looked engineered, used his authority to commission an article, that he then used to attempt to refute that claim in public, without acknowledging his role its genesis. He then awarded the authors with significant grants. All just coincidence I suppose. Dave Strom at Hat Hair, Fauci "commissioned" paper to refute lab leak. Kevin Downey at PJ Media, Boom! Report Suggests Fauci Tried to Suppress Lab Leak Theory. Ace, as usual gets most of the meat into the title, First Fauci Commissioned an Article Clearing the Wuhan Lab He Funded of Any Role in Creating Covid-19. Then He Showed Off That Article to the Press... and Pretended He Had Just Come Across It, and Had Nothing to Do With It.
That paper, titled "The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2," was sent to Fauci for editing in draft form and again for final approval before it was published in Nature Medicine on Feb. 17, 2020. It was written four days after Fauci, and his NIH boss Dr. Francis Collins, held a call with the four authors to discuss reports that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan lab and "may have been intentionally genetically manipulated."
The House Oversight subcommittee published emails Sunday in which the paper's co-author Dr. Kristian Andersen admits Fauci "prompted" him to write the paper with the goal to "disprove" the lab leak theory.
Meanwhile, Bob Spencer at PJ Media reports CNN Boss Ordered Staff Not to Look Into COVID Lab Leak Theory Because It Was ‘Trump Talking Point’, Dave Strom again, CNN suppressed lab leak theory to hurt Trump. At PM, Jeff Zucker called Covid lab leak theory 'Trump talking point', demanded CNN not report on it. "A CNN insider told Fox News about Zucker's direction and said, "People are slowly waking up from the fog. It is kind of crazy that we didn't chase it harder." At Summit News, WHO Urges Countries To Reveal Intel On COVID Origins After FBI Director’s Statements. At HE, Leaked 2020 messages reveal former UK health sec’s plan to ‘frighten the pants of everyone’ by ‘deploying new strain’.
In one December 13 exchange, Damon Poole, a media adviser to Hancock, told the health secretary that Tory members of parliament were "furious already about the prospect" of more stringent mandates, and suggested that they could "roll pitch with the new strain." Hancock responded, “We frighten the pants off everyone with the new strain."

From the Wombats In The Mailbox: 03.06.23, at Twitchy, Tucker Carlson’s J6 surveillance video clips from the Capitol blow holes in the narrative. e.g. Joel Pollak@joelpollak "@TuckerCarlson add that Ray Epps appears to have lied to the January 6 Committee because he was still in the Capitol, contrary to his statements, after he told a nephew via text that he had left after having “orchestrated” the riot." Greg Price@greg_price11 "Never-before-seen January 6 footage completely exonerates Congressman Barry Loudermilk of allowing J6 rioters to do a "reconnaissance mission" the day before. The January 6 Committee also knew this but lied anyway." Matt Vespa at Town Hall, Tucker Carlson Releases January 6 Footage and You Can See Why Dems Wanted to Bury It. Vicky Taft at PJ Media Tucker Carlson's January 6 Exposé Starts Tonight, and He's Already Uncovered Some Big Lies "For instance, Carlson’s team says the J6 committee added audio to silent CCTV footage, inserting screams and other crowd mayhem sounds, to make it seem more ominous. The bookmarks on the video trove show the J6 committee had access to the same footage yet chose to show America only what suited its divisive narrative." Miranda Devine, who may have helped Tucker through some of the film, Jan. 6 footage shows Capitol cops escorting QAnon Shaman to Senate floor, “The tapes show the Capitol Police never stopped Jacob Chansley. They helped him. They acted as his tour guides.” I think they were just keeping an eye on this obviously crazy individual. But violence was never part of his schtick. Insty, WHEN VIDEO DESTROYS A NARRATIVE: Jan. 6 footage shows Capitol cops escorting QAnon Shaman to Senate floor.

Althouse, “Jan. 6 footage shows Capitol cops escorting QAnon Shaman to Senate floor.” The NY Post reports. The fun is in the comments.

"... a litmus test in GOP circles of a candidate’s MAGA bona fides.
Nice Deb at Am Great reports Georgia Bureau of Investigation Charges 23 Antifa Agitators With Domestic Terrorism Following Violent Clash With Police in Atlanta. Chris Queen at PJ Media adds Antifa Thugs Firebomb Atlanta Public Training Facility Construction Site. Ace, 35 Antifa Arrested After Attacking Cops, Setting Fire to Construction Equipment at Police Site in Atlanta; 23 Charged With Domestic Terrorism. "Antifa -- Shrodinger's Terrorist Organization. You can see it attack people and set fire to buildings with your very eyes, while bringing in troops from around the country, but the criminal co-conspirator Chris Wray says it's more of an "idea" than an organization and anyway doesn't have any "national reach." John Sexton at Hat Hair, 35 arrested after rioters set fire to construction equipment, attack police and One of those charged with domestic terrorism after Atlanta riot is an SPLC lawyer. Sundance, Staff Lawyer for Southern Poverty Law Center Arrested Along With 23 People in Georgia Charged with Violent Domestic Terrorism.
Today, Atlanta PD announce 23 people were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism, including Thomas Jurgens of Georgia who is a staff lawyer for the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC has long been known as an extremist group of radical leftists operating under the auspices of “anti-hate group” lawyering. The arrest of an SPLC activist/lawyer on domestic terrorism charges affirms the radicalization of the group itself.
SPLC, cited at Hat Hair, Yeah, that was our employee, but he was just an observer. Capt. Ed, "Bear in mind, of course, that everyone’s innocent until proven guilty. With that said, I wonder how the FBI will take this, especially if they get a look at the video and see just how much “observing” this employee was doing. If the SPLC is sending its employees out to events and they end up participating in domestic terrorism, perhaps the FBI — and every other law-enforcement agency — will think twice about partnering up with them to identify “extremists.”"

Fawning over Biden, the Washington Post inspires me to create a Mixed Metaphor award.

Tyler O'Neil at Da Signal, ‘They Think They’re God,’ Tulsi Gabbard Says of People ‘Trying to Erase Us as Women.’
The notion that biological males are truly women if they claim to identify that way is “insane on its face,” the former Democrat said in an interview with The Daily Signal at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, outside Washington, D.C. “Anyone who has any common sense recognizes the insanity of what is happening before our very eyes,” she said. Yet the transgender movement also reveals “a deeper problem,” that “people in positions of power deny that there is such a thing as objective truth, such as the difference, the biological difference between a male and a female.”
