The White House has issued New Rules that all journalists must obey when partaking in the time-honored tradition of the daily White House press conference. These rules apply to pressers led by both President Donald Trump and Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who received Secret Service detail as Maxine Waters called for liberals to invade Trump administration officials’ personal spaces in real life.
Jim Acosta is clearly the delinquent here, having been banned from the White House and re-instated for 14 days after winning a lawsuit. It appears now that Acosta is back permanently, according to real-time news reports. But Acosta has to follow the rules this time around.

The White House rules state:
- “A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists;”
- “At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up has been allowed and asked, the questioner will yield the floor;”
- “‘Yielding the floor’ includes, when applicable, physically surrendering the microphone to White House staff for use by the next questioner;”
- “Failure to abide by any of these rules (1)-(3) may result in suspension or revocation of the journalist’s hard pass.”

President Trump’s Deputy National Security Advisor: Wuhan Lab is “Most Likely” Source of Chinese Coronavirus
Coronavirus may have emerged from a lab after all.
President Donald Trump’s Deputy National Security Advisor is speculating that the Chinese coronavirus disease escaped from a laboratory environment before spreading into mass circulation.
Matthew Pottinger, Deputy NSA since 2019, suggested that senior Chinese government officials had even come to realize that the disease emerged from the Wuhan Institute of Virology before entering the Huanan Wet Seafood Market. Epidemiologists originally suggested the virus came into existence at the market, where exotic animals were brought and sold in close proximity in an unsanitary fashion.
“There is a growing body of evidence that the lab is likely the most credible source of the virus,” Pottinger told British Members of Parliament in a Zoom conference last week.
Personnel of the World Health Organization are currently preparing for a comprehensive investigation into the origins of the coronavirus disease. Critics of the globalist organization- which is largely thought to be beholden to China- will cover up Chinese state malfeasance and dishonesty into the origins of the virus. An investigation into the devastating virus’ origins could have implications on preventing future outbreaks from escaping laboratory and research enviroments.
The Chinese government has proposed a series of implausible theories alleging that the coronavirus epidemic originated in another country before entering China.
Scientific consensus indicates that COVID-19 evolved from bat viruses, first adapting to pangolins(an anteater-like creature) and mutating in a manner that made it capable of infecting humans. Scientists have broadly agreed on the virus’ zoonotic origins, while declining to decisively rule out the possibility of genetic engineering or laboratory curation.
The coronavirus escaping from a laboratory doesn’t necessarily entail the virus being “man-made.” It’s possible that scientists and researchers could’ve been collecting and compiling viruses native to bats in southern China, and unsafely exposed the materials to other animals or viruses that enabled the organism to evolve for purposes of human infection.
