The possibility that the COVID-19 virus was created by scientists and leaked from a lab in China was dismissed by establishment media and politicians as a conspiracy theory, but amid growing evidence, a majority of Americans now believe it’s the best explanation for the origin of the pandemic.
Article by Art Moore from WND.
Some 60% of American voters favor the lab-leak theory, which is nearly double the 31% who believe the pandemic started naturally, according to a Fox News poll.
The survey found 79% of Republicans and 58% of independents think the virus leaked from a lab, while 41% of Democrats agree. Among Democrats, 46% believe the virus evolved from nature.
The survey also found that people who are not vaccinated are more likely than those who are to say they feel “very” comfortable going out in public (49% vs. 38%).
The telephone survey was conducted June 19-22 under the joint direction of Beacon Research and Shaw & Company.
On Wednesday, Republicans on a House committee announced that White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci will be among the expert witnesses they will invite to a forum on the origins of COVID-19.
Despite growing evidence the virus originated from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, House Democrats have refused to investigate.
Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the Republican whip, and Rep. James Comer, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, plan to hold two witness panels and one panel with members.
“The left-wing media called it a ‘fringe conspiracy theory,’ Big Tech censored it, activists in white lab coats dismissed it and Democrats ignored it, but there is growing evidence communist China started the pandemic, covered it up and is responsible for the deaths of more than 600,000 Americans and millions more worldwide,” Scalise and Comer said in a statement.

YouTube, Spotify, and other Big Tech platforms are taking Freedom First Network down
It’s no secret we speak our minds and bring on guests who do the same. That’s one of the biggest reasons we put together the Freedom First Network in the first place. There are far too many news outlets, including so-called “conservative” media companies, who are so beholden to Big Tech that they temper their perspectives at best and outright coverup the truth at worst. Many, as you all know, will blatantly lie in order to maintain the narrative that supports the radical agenda taking over much of the United States.
We have had our YouTube channel taken down. Many of our shows have been suppressed or removed by Facebook and Twitter. Spotify banned one of our shows completely from their platform. Google hates us. We’ve even been censored by some of the smaller players like Medium, Transistor, and Captivate. But we stand behind our reporting and perspectives and we refuse to bow down to Big Tech tyranny for the sake of pageviews or video plays.
This isn’t the easiest road to travel, especially for a media company that is so new. We launched Freedom First Network in 2020 to fight against the very censorship that we’re seeing so widespread today. We have found great homes for our content on freer speech platforms like Rumble and we’re putting our best efforts forward into building our presence on Locals. Nevertheless, we cannot do it alone. We need help.
One of the things cofounders Jeff Dornik and JD Rucker agreed to from the start was to never be the pawns of companies that do not embrace our worldview. Finding advertisers and affiliates is easy; we receive requests by companies wanting to be pushed on our shows every day. But it’s important to us that we’re promoting companies, services, and products that are beneficial to maintaining a Freedom First stance in America. As a result, we do not take on sponsors easily. We would rather rely on our own products like Freedom First Coffee and the support of our wonderful viewers, listeners, and readers.
Those who want to support us and help keep the fight for America’s future moving forward can do so by donating through our Locals page. There, you can donate monthly or one-time. Some have told us to use Patreon or GoFundMe, but both of those platforms have demonstrated a hatred for free speech. Locals does not. They embrace it. We encourage everyone to join us on Locals, but donations are greatly appreciated as well. We do not have day jobs. Our fight for freedom is a full-time gig.
Please feel free to reach out to us through our contact form. It goes directly to our founders, so if you’re interested in getting involved, investing, sponsoring, or even bringing a show to our network, let us know. May God Bless the United States of America!
