Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

The article is titled "Biden turns to spies after scientists give 'wrong' answer on lab leak" and accuses Biden of doing the same thing Bush did when looking for WMDs in Iraq. It's a blatant example of CCP propaganda, but it illustrates how many domestic outlets are doing a lower key version of the same thing, misleading people about what scientific evidence has actually ruled out.

President Biden says he can't figure it out " and asked a group of experts to write a report giving him the answer.

A group of expert scientists?

No - a group of expert spies.

Why? The answer is politics. Scientists have already answered this question. And it hasn't satisfied Biden. Spy agencies are more likely to find ways to give the answer the president wants to hear.

Scientists have not ruled out the lab leak scenario. Scientific evidence has not ruled it out. This claim is appealing to the ignorance of people who either don't know or (like one of resident drunks) don't care about the difference between genetic engineering and genetic modification.

South China is the region where the original SARS outbreak occurred " caused by a coronavirus.

Wuhan is one of the area's biggest transportation and commercial hubs. Its markets receive goods and agricultural products from all over the country and the world.

If COVID-19 jumped from animals to humans like SARS did, the odds are that an outbreak would be first detected in a place like Wuhan's wildlife markets.


Absurd claim. Any animals found at a "wildlife market" would be relatively local (perhaps even fresh off the street). They do not get animals from 1000 miles away for stuff like that.

Well this is all well and good, but I'm going to have to wait for BellDonger to set us straight.
Bwahahaha.

I guess I'm the only one here willing to defend Biden.

How's that for irony?

Opinion

At the very top of the linked piece.

I read it twice - it cited certain individuals at WHO (which has been widely criticized for pushing CCP propaganda on this across the board).

It was long on hyperbole and while it tried to go from A to B to C it did a poor job of it IMO. The parallel it tried to draw between the lab leak theory and WMD's was very weak sauce.

The author also made the argument that we should just forget about trying to figure out the origins and worry about mitigating the virus. Problem with that is we might be able to better mitigate it if we have a full understanding of its origins.

#5 I don't see this as a Biden issue, positively or negatively.

"IOW you're a troll?"

Nope, a troll is someone who deliberately tries to provoke an angry response. It never occurred to me that someone would flag a post as funny because they're angry at what the post contained. The constant funny flagging is a lame form of passive-aggressive trolling in itself. Jokes on them, though, because every time they do it they reveal what a lame troll they are.

Biden is an incompetent and corrupt piece of human feces whose crotch fruit (thank you for that starting that term) do nothing but bring misery to the world.

With that said, if anything, Biden has carried water for the CCP since early in the pandemic when he was trying to spin it that Trump mishandled everything that innocently spawned in China. Now that the Biden-covid variants are killing people, he is finally interested in the truth so this article does not understand the actual history of the incompetent Biden response written by his handlers and delivered by a soulless, lifeless corpse that was once occupied by Joe Biden.
