I didn’t see any headlines at The New York Times calling Dr. Anthony Fauci a ‘Fringe Conspiracy’ theorist, as they did with Sen. Tom Cotton, for suggesting that there needs to be an investigation into the origins of the coronavirus that emanated from Communist China.
Fauci’s statements went for the most part unnoticed. Many people didn’t realize he had suggested nearly two weeks ago, that the COVID-19 virus could have been developed in the Wuhan laboratory ( or manmade versus nature) until a question and answer interview with Katie Sanders of PolitiFact became more public over the weekend.
His statements come in the wake of many other highly credible lawmakers, scientists and pundits were criticized for suggesting that the COVID-19 virus may not have evolved naturally but was possibly developed in the Wuhan laboratory. Dr. Anthony Fauci finally suggested he is “not convinced” COVID-19 developed naturally. He told PolitiFact’s Katie Sanders that there should be an open investigation into the virus’ origins.
But remember when Sen. Cotton questioned the origins of COVID-19? Remember The New York Times headline: “Senator Tom Cotton Repeats Fringe Theory of Coronavirus Origins“
FROM THE TIMES:
The rumor appeared shortly after the new coronavirus struck China and spread almost as quickly: that the outbreak now afflicting people around the world had been manufactured by the Chinese government.
The conspiracy theory lacks evidence and has been dismissed by scientists. But it has gained an audience with the help of well-connected critics of the Chinese government such as Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist. And on Sunday, it got its biggest public boost yet.
Speaking on Fox News, Senator Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas, raised the possibility that the virus had originated in a high-security biochemical lab in Wuhan, the Chinese city at the center of the outbreak.The New York Times
I suspect this call for an investigation may have something to do with the fact that over 42% of the American people have lost confidence in Fauci’s statements.
First, I think the left and the establishment need a lesson in American tenacity and commonsense. We have both and aren’t fooled for long – at least I hope not.
Moreover, here’s what Fauci said to Sanders during the question and answer. He’s wanting the same questions answered that Cotton rightfully brought up at the hearings.
“There’s a lot of cloudiness around the origins of COVID-19 still, so I wanted to ask, are you still confident that it developed naturally?” Sanders asked the nation’s top infectious disease expert in an event, United Facts of America: A Festival of Fact-Checking event.
“No actually,” said Fauci. He is the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). He makes the statements roughly 12 minutes into the event, as posted by Fox News.
“I am not convinced about that, I think we should continue to investigate what went on in China until we continue to find out to the best of our ability what happened,” Fauci said.
Well, I guess better late than never.

Daily Wire investigation: Italian company may have illegally sold rights to the Vatican’s priceless art
The Daily Wire has been conducting a fascinating investigation into the Vatican Museum’s priceless artwork. “Rights to the Vatican Museums’ priceless trove of art treasures may have been illegally sold without the Holy See’s approval in what one attorney described as a “high-tech heist,” the investigation finds.
An Italian company is allegedly selling the rights to reproduce the Vatican artwork in six-figure deals, while claiming to be working in “collaboration with” the Vatican Museums.
“This scheme is nothing less than a pre-meditated, high-tech heist of world-class treasured art from the Vatican Museums under the disguise of bogus licenses, as if sanctioned by the Vatican,” Sarah Rose Speno, a New York attorney, told The Daily Wire.
The Daily Wire’s report notes that Speno said she stumbled upon the alleged scheme in March when she sought permission to use images of Vatican art for an exhibition by a client.
“We discovered that a large table book had been published with high-resolution images of the interiors of the Vatican, including the Sistine Chapel,” Speno said. “We very much wanted to pursue an opportunity to license these images, as soon as possible.”
Speno contacted Scripta Maneant — the Italian publisher that licensed the photos in the book. Scripta Maneant claimed authority to broker the publishing rights via its “collaboration” with Vatican Museums vice director, Monsignore Paolo Nicolini. Scripta Maneant wanted $550,000 for the rights — with a portion being paid to the Vatican through Nicolini, according to Speno. Although Scripta Maneant claimed the fee would be shared with the Vatican, Speno said she later became suspicious.
“The Scripta Maneant scheme became obvious when the Scripta principals demanded a cash wire in the amount of $82,500 no later than their return from summer holiday in late August,” Speno said. “They said that they would produce Vatican approval for our Italian Renaissance Immersive project ‘if and only if’ the fee were wired to the Scripta bank account they provided. It was at this point that grave suspicion entered my mind.”
Ultimately, Speno said, “we terminated the deal when Scripta could not provide us with documented consent by the Vatican.”
