Arguing that the virus spread “naturally…you would have to believe that happened 300 feet from the lab by pure coincidence,” Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin told the American Enterprise Institute’s “WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON?” podcast on Tuesday.

Rogin first reported of the State Department cables that warned in January 2018 about the lack of safety and mishandling of experiments on coronavirus in bats which “represented a risk of a new SARS-like pandemic” from the Wuhan lab now-suspected of being the origin of the coronavirus pandemic. Moreover, Rogin revealed to the podcast hosts that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is “preparing to make some sort of transparency disclosure” to prove that the virus didn’t emanate from its facility.

“To believe it had nothing to do with the lab, you have to believe that the one time in a trillion chance that the worst virus we’ve ever seen, that’s killing the most people that we’ve ever seen emerged at the exact spot, like literally the exact spot that all of these bat coronavirus immunology and viral experimentation labs just happened to be at. That’s a leap of faith that I can’t quite get over,” Rogin explained.

The Chinese government has been extremely tight-lipped on the matter and has disappeared citizen journalists and doctors who earlier warned about the potential harm the virus posed to the world. The many questions as to the origins of the virus, however, can only be answered, Rogin said, if and when the Chinese government is transparent about the first cases of the virus in Wuhan, and allows U.S. investigators into Wuhan.

U.S. intelligence officials are now conducting a “full-scale investigation” into whether the virus leaked from the lab in Wuhan, Fox News confirmed earlier this month. Further, Federal Health Officials are also looking into a grant funded by U.S. taxpayer dollars sent to the lab to support its research, according to a letter obtained by Breitbart.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
