Sara Carter appeared on Steve Hilton’s “The Next Revolution” to discuss on Sunday the Wall Street Journal’s groundbreaking report on the very first cases of COVID-19 reportedly coming from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in November 2019.

“There are so many unanswered questions,” Carter said. “Very few journalists actually are asking the right questions.”

On the other hand, those who had been asking the right questions were mocked. “When people like Senator Tom Cotton came forward and said look we need to investigate this, we need to see what’s happening in China, we need to understand the origin of this virus, of coronavirus,” Carter said, “it was as if he was a conspiracy theorist.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) was slammed in the media for asking those questions early on in the pandemic and for negating the World Health Organization.

Cotton and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) both pressed Dr. Fauci earlier this year on the origins of the coronavirus. Then, they were rebuffed. Now, Fauci is calling for an investigation into its origin. Cotton tweeted Monday how “remarkable” of a coincidence it would be if the virus didn’t originate in the lab.

With a little help from their Democrat friends, a Chinese electric vehicle (EV) battery company with ties to the Chinese Communist Party just announced the opening of its second plant in the United States.

Fox News reports Gotion Inc., whose parent company Gotion High-Tech is based in Hefei, China, unveiled plans to build a $2 billion lithium battery plant in Manteno, Illinois, alongside Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker, who cheered the project.

The announcement comes amid growing opposition to the company’s plans to build a billion-dollar factory in Mecosta County, Michigan.

In order to make the expansion happen, lobbyists for the Chinese Communist Party-tied electric vehicle company funneled cash to Democrats. “Individuals at a law firm registered as foreign agents to lobby on behalf of Gotion, a Chinese electric vehicle battery company developing a controversial project in Michigan, and wired campaign contributions to several top Democrats” reports Fox News.

“According to state and federal filings, Monique Field-Foster, an attorney at the Lansing office of the Warner Norcross + Judd law firm who is acting as a foreign agent on behalf of Gotion, donated to the campaigns of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Whitmer’s sister Liz Gereghty and Michigan Democratic Senate hopeful Rep. Elissa Slotkin” the Fox News report continued.

“In partnership with the business community and the General Assembly, two years ago we set out to make Illinois a destination for electric vehicle and clean energy companies from across the globe,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“With the right incentives, nation-leading infrastructure, world-class workforce and booming clean energy production, we have transformed ourselves into an attractive location for global manufacturers. Today, we take another leap forward. It’s my pleasure to welcome Gotion to Illinois and to show the world yet again that Illinois is ready to be a player on the world stage.”

Pritzker delivered remarks late last week thanking Gotion for choosing Illinois to call “home” in a ceremony with leaders from Gotion High-Tech, including Li Zhen, the company’s chairman and president, who said he expected the factory to open in less than 12 months.

“All that we see here [in Illinois] are of enormous value to us: an enabling business environment, a supportive state government for the new energy industry and their highly efficient work, as well as the prospects of the State of Illinois in the coming years,” the Gotion president added. “We believe that Gotion’s battery technology will help to boost e-mobility in North America and the economic and trade exchanges between China and the U.S.”
