Outgoing National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Francis Collins expressed regret his agency “under-invested in research in human behavior” while lamenting the choice of tens of millions of Americans to not receive a COVID-19 jab. Collins’s departure comes amidst intense scrutiny over the National Institutes of Health funding research on “killer” bat viruses with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, believed by many to be the source of COVID-19.

A high-profile member of the World Health Organization’s recent “investigative” trip to Wuhan to uncover the origins of COVID-19 has accepted research grants from the Chinese Communist Party and runs a controversial U.S.-based organization which collaborates with the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Peter Daszak’s ties to the Chinese Communist Party call into question the validity of his and the World Health Organization (WHO) investigative team which concluded that it is “extremely unlikely” COVID-19 came from a Chinese Communist Party lab. Their claims echo Chinese Communist Party narratives, and Daszak himself implored the world to not “rely” on U.S. intelligence for

The following is an excerpt from the forthcoming book “Dumb and Dumber: How Cuomo and De Blasio Ruined New York.” If New York were its own country, it would have more coronavirus deaths per capita than any other in the entire world. At the center of Andrew Cuomo’s litany of errors is his now infamous “March 25 advisory” issued to nursing home administrators, directors of nursing, and hospital discharge planners. The order put nursing homes in the position where they’d be forced to treat those infected with coronavirus. With that fact alone one can immediately see how such a policy
