WND's Farah Touted Scientist His Own Website Admits Is Discredited
Topic: WorldNetDaily

Joseph Farah wrote in his Dec. 27 WorldNetDaily column:

Do you trust the Chinese Communist Party to tell the truth about the COVID-19 virus that has killed some 5,413,000 people throughout the world?

Do you buy the story that it escaped the Wuhan lab accidentally, according to the Chinese government?

Do you recognize that this same totalitarian nation is responsible for the worst genocide in history between Mao's Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, the great purges and the Tibet invasion, between 1949 and 1969 – estimated to have claimed as many as 78 million lives?

Let's be frank.

With a track record like that, why does the world give China the benefit of the doubt?

Recently, Joshua Philipp, an award-winning investigative reporter with The Epoch Times and an expert on unrestricted warfare, interviewed Dr. Yan Li-meng, a virologist and former member of the World Health Organization influenza H5 Reference Lab based at the University of Hong Kong School of Public Health, a key emergency disease facility for the Chinese government.

Yan does not believe the Chinese government when it comes to the origin of the virus.

Yan said SARS-CoV-2 was the result of a secret 20-year-old bioweapons research program that included coronaviruses.

"I'm the big problem," Yan said. "They (the CCP) need to disappear me. The reason is very clear, because the things I'm telling the world actually reveal the top confidential plans of the Chinese government. They've spent over 20 years working on the novel bioweapons, including coronavirus."

But Farah apparently doesn't read his own website. Yan's story has been discredited by actual scientists -- and WND even corrected an article that had promoted Yan's claim.

In September 2020, WND hyped Yan's asssertion that "she has evidence COVID-19 is man-made and plans to publish it soon." As we noted, a month later WND appended a correction to the article:

CORRECTION Oct. 11, 2020: Appearances by Dr. Li-Meng Yan on media outlets in Britain and the United States have come under fresh scrutiny in connection with her own pre-print (an unpublished draft of a science paper) on the website Zenodo claiming to provide evidence that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was created in a laboratory and is not of natural origin. Yan's pre-print, which was not peer-reviewed by other experts in the field, claims that some unique characteristics in the SARS-CoV-2 genome prove that the virus is man-made. However, experts disputed Yan's pre-print for being flawed and containing unsubstantiated claims. The exact origin of the SARS-CoV-2 virus remains unknown. Dr. Yan claims to prove that the SARS-COV-2 virus originated in a lab, but a careful analysis of her pre-print actually shows this claim is unsubstantiated.

Despite the fact that his own website considers Yan discredited -- and refusing to share that fact with his readers -- Farah concluded his column with paranoiac ranting based on her dubious claims:

Joe Biden is also compromised – by Hunter Biden's business in China.

So is Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell by his own dealings in China, as well as Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.

And don't forget the press and Big Tech – that goes beyond compromise! They are more than apologists for China. They freely and eagerly censor all voices that criticize the Chicoms. Just ask Google who committed the worst genocides in history!

Time is running out for America.

We keep hiding behind the pandemic, with vaccine mandates that are not working, mask mandates that never worked and businesses that are in bed with China.

Meanwhile, China grows more bellicose and warlike.

China is the most existential threat to the U.S. in the world. Where does this end?

And Farah wonders why his website is going down the tubes.
