“Exclusive: Google Funded Research of Wuhan-Linked Group, Then Suppressed Critics.” In this episode of “Facts Matter,” host Roman Balmakov interviews Natalie Winters, an investigative reporter with the National Pulse.
Google’s funding of EcoHealth Alliance, a scientific research company, drew criticism over political conflicts of interest. The host starts off by revealing that Dr. Peter Daszak, the president of EcoHealth Alliance, has had a long-standing relationship with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He has collaborated with the Wuhan Institute of Virology and worked on a report supporting the natural origins theory of COVID-19. This study was then used by Google to censor the lab leak theory. Dr. Daszak also has ties to the World Health Organization, which did not reveal his connections until recently after investigations discovered the fact. Winters agrees with the host that this situation of Google funding research and then using the information to discredit the lab leak theory creates major conflicts of interest and creates an environment for a cover-up. She compares it to the information revealed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) that Dr. Anthony Fauci and The National Institute of Health had ties to the Wuhan Institute, which they denied but later it was proven to be true. Winters states this is an example of a “complete and total compromise of the American scientific establishment to the Chinese Communist Party.”
In the next segment of the video, the host asks Winters about the connection that Hunter Biden has to all of this. She responds by revealing that Hunter Biden worked with John Kerry’s stepson at Rosemont Capital, an investment firm. Rosemont Capital would later partner with the Chinese regime to form VHR Partners, which was a $1.5 billion venture.
An offshoot of this company was another organization called Rosemont Seneca Technology Partners, which since 2014 has been a major investor of another firm that did studies on the origins of the CCP virus, commonly known as the novel coronavirus. One of the researchers listed was the Chinese researcher who did the research on bats, which most likely led to the creation of the virus. All of these connections, which are tied to the COVID-19 disease, point to the election of Joe Biden who used the virus to promote mail-in voting ballots.
Next, the host asks Winters for her opinion on the Wall Street Journal article which revealed that the intelligence gathered on sick employees at the Wuhan lab was responsible for the debate over the origins of the virus. The information in the article helped to change public opinion and informed people that the virus came from the CCP lab in Wuhan. The mainstream media would later contradict itself by saying that this was an accidental release and not an intentional one. With the mainstream media’s ties to the CCP, this is not a surprising tactic to shift blame away from the CCP. She also states that the misinformation that the virus was an accidental leak released by the media opens them up for lawsuits for the lies that they told and in misleading people to think it was accidental instead of intentional. Now that the American people are beginning to see the larger scope of the cover-up and the ties to the CCP, there is anger about the release of the virus and the devastating effects it has had on our country and others. In addition to all of the health issues and deaths surrounding the virus, there is also negative economic damage that has been brought about by COVID-19.
In the next section of the video, the host asks Winters to comment about “how the Chinese communist government is courting American journalists.” She responds by saying this is “ideological warfare.” She then discusses the China-United States Exchange Foundation and its purpose.

China-United States Exchange Foundation (CUSEF)
According to the CUSEF website, the foundation started in Hong Kong in 2008 and is an independent, non-profit and non-governmental organization committed to the belief that a positive and peaceful relationship between the United States and China is essential for global wellbeing. The website claims that it is a privately funded foundation and that it “builds platforms to encourage constructive dialogue and diverse exchanges between the people of the U.S. and China.”
A 2020 report by the Jamestown Foundation, a defense policy think tank, revealed another agenda. In 2018, CUSEF sparked public debate due to grants it gave to U.S. universities. One such proposed grant, which was ultimately declined, was for a China Public Policy Center to be a part of the University of Texas. CUSEF has ties to the CCP, which it vehemently denies, yet continue to be involved in funding lobbying activities in the realm of politics. CUSEF also works with several U.S. public relations companies and think tanks.
All of these connections and ties show how the CCP has entangled itself within our country and how it uses various organizations and companies to fund its propaganda as pointed out by Winters. She reveals how CUSEF paid for American journalists to go to China and upon their return were required to write favorable coverage and disseminate positive information about China and the CCP.
Although CUSEF has removed a lot of information from its website, Winters discovered an archived version which listed the journalists that took these trips. Included were journalists from Fox and CNN. She stated she has seen a lot of posts praising the Chinese regime and their handling of the virus. Another concerning fact Winters reveals is that a former congressman took one of the CUSEF-funded trips to China and upon his return, he wrote an article for an Arizona publication about how good the CCP is and how America needs to have closer ties with it. When Biden was elected, he appointed this individual to an education board within his administration.
The video concludes with Winters explaining that while on these trips, there were tours of labs and factories as well as meetings with top CCP officials. She calls the compromise by CUSEF one of the key factors in this massive push by the CCP to infiltrate and exploit our country. The mainstream media has hidden a lot of this from the American public and instead of reporting the truth, continue to promote communist propaganda.
