Pentagon Shoots Down ABC Report That White House Knew About Bat Soup Virus In November

See, ABC “News” tried this

This sent many resistance types over the edge. But, see, there’s a big problem

Defense official says media reports about November coronavirus intel assessment are false

A defense official on Wednesday issued a rare denial of reports by ABC News and others that claimed a November intelligence assessment warned about a rapidly spreading coronavirus in China that posed a threat to American forces in the region.

The official said no such assessment existed.

ABC News cited unnamed officials with knowledge of the assessment by the military’s National Center for Medical Intelligence (NCMI) that raised concerns of the coronavirus and highlighted how it was disputing daily life and business in the area.

Col. R. Shane Day, the director of the NCMI, a component of the Defense Intelligence Agency, refuted the ABC News report in a statement.

“As a matter of practice the National Center for Medical Intelligence does not comment publicly on specific intelligence matters,” he said. “However, in the interest of transparency during this current public health crisis, we can confirm that media reporting about the existence/release of a National Center for Medical Intelligence Coronavirus-related product/assessment in November of 2019 is not correct. No such NCMI product exists.”

I’m utterly shocked, shocked I tell you, that ABC ran a hit piece with zero named sources. And then they wonder why Trump attacks them as fake news. Expect this to show up during today’s press conference.

The supposed intelligence reportedly was obtained through wire and computer intercepts and satellite images. ABC News did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment Wednesday.

The DIA and NCMI spent the past 24 hours going over anything that could be related to the alleged assessment, but failed to find anything, a defense official told Fox News.

ABC News reported that the White House was briefed several times about the document, with one source telling the outlet that “analysts concluded it could be a cataclysmic event.” Another source said policy-makers and decision-makers across the federal government, including the National Security Council at the White House, were repeatedly briefed on the matter.

And ABC offers zero named sources for all this. And the Credentialed Media wonders why their ratings for being trustworthy are so low. It’s strange how virtually every hit piece from the media, every attempt to dunk on him, every attempt to score point, includes no named sources. It’s almost like they are making stuff up. Sometimes I wonder whether it’s actually the Trump admin feeding the media this stuff to make the media look bad as bad as they really are, knowing they’ll run off that cliff like Wiley E. Coyote.

    This is contrary to everything that has been dug up about the Virus. Even in China in December there were only 8 known cases of unexplained pnemonia. Hardly something to warrant and intell memo or document. In November they had 2 or 3 cases.

    Additionally an Italian Virulogist wrote that it was possible that Italy might have seen cases of the Virus in November when they too had a couple of cases of unexplained pnemonia. Remember Italy basically has a conveyor belt to China for peasant labor to work on the belt and road project.

    To understand the importance of living under communist rule, China uses the Belt and Road project as a hook to force nations to become robber states for their empire. This is how you then are treated by your BENEVOLENT COMMUNIST BENEFACTORS.\

    Italy sold defective PPE equiptment from China.

    Italy donated PPE to China and then was forced to BUY IT BACK when they needed it and China didn’t.

    China is the epitome of EVIL. If ever there was a 666 then the empire of CHINA is certainly it.

    If ever our children needed to be taught the virtues of Communism this past 30 years was the time.

    At the White House Briefing Trump has an argument with a CCP Journalist working for Hong Kong but in reality the company she works for is owned and operated by the CCP of CHINA. She was arguing with Trump about how wonderful China was.

    China blamed the USA for the cornoavirus.

    China blamed Italy for the coronavirus

    China now screens ONLY AFRICANS………owe the humanity. Profiling and RACIST but does anyone care?

    China is forcing nations to take their sick workers back into their country because they were dumb enough to become indebted to them.

    CHINA is the scourge of the earth and when this is over, I would count on Trump to slap 100 percent tarrifs on china to get our companies back to America.

    Yes you can count on stuff getting more expensive, but at least our jobs will be back in America. China will face this backlash around the country and the USA can once again retake the role of world leader.

    That is if Trump can understand the difference between Nationalism and Isolationism.

    These SECRET SOURCES are once again ANOTHER REASON TO IMPEACH TRUMP. mark my words. Here we go again. QUE UP ADAM SCHIFF!!!!

    Teach

    December ?
    Is that a significant difference ?
    WHO announced it in Dec certainly our intelligence agencies like NSA knew earlier

    NYT: Most New York Coronavirus Cases Came From Europe, Genomes Show

    New research indicates that the coronavirus began to circulate in the New York area by mid-February, weeks before the first confirmed case, and that travelers brought in the virus mainly from Europe, not Asia.

    Conspiracy alert! Conspiracy alert! OK, cultists. Is this an example of the commie press trying to cover for China??? Genomes? Ha, using that sciency “fag-talk” (please watch Idiocracy) to mislead America.

    and more…

    Maciej Boni of Penn State University and his colleagues recently used this method to see where the coronavirus, designated SARS-CoV-2, came from in the first place. While conspiracy theories might falsely claim the virus was concocted in a lab, the virus’s genome makes clear that it arose in bats.

    Obviously, Nobel candidate Jim Hoft has forgotten more about genome sequencing than these commies ever even knew. No matter how many independent labs come up with the same result – the virus came from bats – it doesn’t negate the fact that a Chinese virus lab is in Hunan!

    N.B. – The US has several BSL-4 labs that handle killer viruses.

    Atlanta, GA has 2

    Galveston, TX has 2

    Ft. Detrick, MD

    Hamilton, MT

    San Antonio, TX

    Richmond, VA

    Frederick, MD

      Duh. Don Cuomo made a big show of taking in people from Italy and Red China because open borders.

      If this is supposed to be something new or shocking, try again. Anybody paying attention knew this because Idiot Boy was broadcasting it over the airwaves.

      My God, you’re getting desperate.

      And silly.

      There’s also on in Hubei ICYMI. It’s the one working on it at the time.

      Instead of trying to indulge your fetish about showing how wrong the Hofts are (they’re not), you might try getting your facts right. Most of the Left has moved on to whether it was an accident or not.

      The US has several BSL-4 labs that handle killer viruses.

      So?

      “Most NY cases came from Europe…” But how did they get to Europe? From China

    I bet that statement from Colonel Day, made his boss, the Commander in Chief, President Trump very happy!!

  5. formwiz says:

    I take it this article is what has Jeffery and his cartoon characters in such a froth.

    You can tell Trump is winning this.

    Jeffery’s running around like Gomer Pyle yelling, “Citizen’s arreyest! Citizen’s arreyest!”,

    Well, this drops a clod in the churn.

    Right now Medicare is determining that if you have a COVID-19 admission to the hospital you get $13,000. If that COVID-19 patient goes on a ventilator you get $39,000, three times as much. Nobody can tell me after 35 years in the world of medicine that sometimes those kinds of things impact on what we do.

    You mean the Deep Staters are bribing people? That’s illegal, innit?
