Sara Carter was joined by China expert and national security reporter Bill Gertz on the “Sara Carter Show” podcast Thursday. Gertz discussed the origins of COVID-19 and revealed shocking information about China’s discovery of thousands of other viruses to Carter.
Slightly over a year ago, Gertz published a report in The Washington Times titled “Virus Linked to Wuhan Lab, Military Work at Wuhan Lab.” The article was based on an interview with a former Israeli military intelligence doctor who had studied the Chinese biological warfare program.
The former Israeli military intelligence doctor told Gertz during the interview that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is linked to the People’s Liberation Army, the Chinese military, and suggested that the coronavirus could have been leaked from that lab.
During this time, China was blaming the cause of the virus on an animal market in Wuhan, about five miles away from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, according to Gertz.
Gertz’s article, complete with the interview from the former Israeli military intelligence doctor, was labeled as a “debunked conspiracy theory” by USA Today and “false information” by Facebook. The article was then removed from The Washington Times‘ website.https://rumble.com/vdhg1x-bill-gertz-discusses-real-covid-origins.html?mref=3jw5d&mc=d7nbr
Earlier this month, the State Department revealed information that confirmed the claims in Gertz’s article were true.
“Well, fast forward to January 15 of this month, and the State Department, in a very detailed fact sheet, revealed that yes, indeed, as I reported a year ago, the Wuhan Institute of virology is not only linked to the People’s Liberation Army, the Chinese military, but that they have been conducting secret biological warfare experiments at the laboratory since at least 2017,” Gertz told Carter.
More information continues to be released verifying the information in Gertz’s article, but Facebook has not removed the “false” label from his work.
“It’s been a battle but truth will out,” Gertz said. “I’m confident that when the dust settles on this, my story will be recognized as having been one of the first to say that this is one of the two paths that this pandemic began and the most likely path in my personal view for where the virus began.”
Gertz says that the Chinese Communist Party is controlling the media and we need to hold them accountable for their actions.
“If you look at our mainstream media today, there’s almost no mention of the fact that this virus came from China. And in fact, China’s narrative is that it didn’t come from China.”
“Chinese are spending billions of dollars annually to influence the United States,” Gertz said. “And how do they do that? On the on the media front, they control a lot of the media, by access to China. Any major news organization that wants to have a bureau in China will have to be compliant with Chinese narratives … We’re now suffering the consequences of this, because they have also exploited the business community by saying, if you want to do business in China, not only do you have to go along with us, but you have to actually lobby the U.S. government and the U.S. public to support our policies.”
“How do we get this information out and in people’s consciousness?” Gertz questioned. “How do we get our leadership and our lawmakers and our and our other government people to do something about it?”
Gertz is concerned about the Biden administration’s involvement.
“The Biden administration, I’m very much afraid that they’re going to cover up what China has, has done and is doing.”
“Joe Biden ran for President on the fact that he criticized the Trump administration’s response to the pandemic. And then what did he do? He hired Anthony Fauci, who is leading that pandemic effort. So that just shows the level of hypocrisy now in government is at very high levels,” Gertz said.
“The Trump administration was battling the bureaucracy, both the intelligence and the political bureaucracy, at state and other agencies. They wanted to release all of this information,” Gertz said.
Gertz told Carter he talked to intelligence officials within the Trump administration who revealed to him that the Chinese biological warfare program is focusing on developing ethnically targeted weapons that can kill or disable specific ethnic groups.
According to Gertz’s reports, China has bragged publicly that they have discovered 2,000 new viruses.
“Not all of them are bad coronaviruses. There are other animal viruses as well, but they’ve discovered 2000 new viruses,” Gertz said. “So China is obsessed with viruses. And this is a clear indication that they and they’ve and they’ve had lab leaks in the past.”
Gertz is shocked that the information he has been uncovering is not getting more attention in the media.
“The fact that our media and our government is not demanding a full accounting of all the research, all the notes, all the researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Neurology is criminal,” Gertz said.
“The Chinese government is a nuclear-armed communist dictatorship, a genocidal regime, and they are responsible for the destruction that we’re seeing around the world economic and human, and they need to be held accountable,” Gertz added.
“We’re battling for our country, and we’re battling for our freedom. China’s in the background, they’re fueling it, they want to see the United States decline and ultimately destroyed.”

Shanghai: China’s Potemkin Village
Following a recent outbreak of COVID-19, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has imposed a month-long draconian lockdown on the residents of Shanghai. The CCP has used the outbreak to persecute its own citizens, including through forced evictions and quarantines, and placing alarms on doors to prevent COVID-19 people from leaving their homes. The harsh measures have resulted in food and healthcare shortages and separation of families.
But of course, we wouldn’t know that by reading the CCP-run press readily available in the United States. Instead of presenting the facts, the CCP engages in a comprehensive propaganda campaign that props up Shanghai as a Chinese Potemkin village. The CCP media asserts that China’s actions in Shanghai are benevolent and wise, while Western criticism is a product of malice. Chinese state-run media also insists that the Shanghai lockdown promotes economic stability in China and the world.
Claim 1: China Has the Best Policy for Combating COVID-19
The CCP media portray the Shanghai lockdown as the best and ideal policy. As cited by a XinhuaNet editorial, “China’s dynamic zero-COVID approach” is “the best option to save lives,” according to a “Rwandan researcher and publisher,” “…a miracle for us to learn,” according to a Kenyan scholar, and “a very ideal response,” according to Ethiopia’s National COVID-19 Response Task Force Coordinator. According to CCP media, Chinese citizens have greeted the Shanghai lockdown warmly, even with “[a] mixed sense of intensity, unity and hopefulness,” according to China Daily.
Claim 2: The West Hypocritically Defames China
The CCP press also accuses the West of lying about the Shanghai lockdown, and using COVID policies for nefarious ends. According to XinhuaNet, “Shanghai…has never imposed what Western media described as a ‘lockdown.’” Other CCP editorials actually accuse the West of malice. One Global Times editorial claims that the lockdown “has been deliberately exaggerated by the West.” Another Global Times editorial asserts that the Western approach of “coexisting with the virus” amounts to a way “…to drive out a large number of the vulnerable people with low immunity,” and a form of “cruel social Darwinism.”
Claim 3: China’s COVID Policies Result in an Economic Windfall to China and the World
The CCP also portrays the lockdown as necessary to achieve great economic growth in China and beyond. One Global Times editorial, while conceding that the lockdown amounted to a “sealing-off,” it is “a temporary measure to better resume work and production and to make the economy and society function more effectively. Its effectiveness has been proven.” According to another Global Times editorial, China’s policy is “widely considered to be the best strategy…to both contain the epidemic and ensure stable economic development.”
In an Orwellian fashion, Chinese press claims that China is solving, not causing, the world’s economic problems. According to XinhuaNet, “China has played a decisive role in stabilizing the global economy and resuming the supply chain disrupted by COVID-19.” Citing a Bloomberg article, the same XinhuaNet editorial claims that China “has prevented a huge number of deaths at home and ensured that everything from iPhones and Teslas to fertilizer and car parts continues to flow to the rest of the world.” Chinese citizens, of course, are collateral damage: Ji Qiwei, vice-general manager of SAIC Motor Passenger Vehicle, stated that “The domestic market may be impacted a little by the COVID-19 outbreak this year, but our export market will continue to see strong growth,” according to China Daily.
While the world continues to suffer economic and human damage as a result of COVID-19, China continues to revise history regarding its role. Through its propaganda in its English publications of Xinhua, China Daily, and Global Times, China seeks to portray itself as a benevolent force in the fight against the virus.
