Anthony Hall, Professor Emeritus of Globalization Studies (University of Lethbridge) and editor of American Herald Tribune, is the author of a brand-new six-part series on Wuhan virus “conspiracy theories” and free speech: [Complete article] [Part 1] [Part 2] [Part 3] [Part 4] [Part 5] [Part 6]

Mainstream media have used the Wuhan coronavirus crisis as a cudgel to bash China. The main talking point: China’s authoritarian system, with its restrictions on free communications and freedom of the press, has supposedly impeded an effective response to the pandemic. Yet these same MSM outlets have also tried to restrict the debate—by labeling uncensored speech on the subject “conspiracy theories” that are likened to a dangerous virus that needs to be quarantined.

In this interview Anthony Hall discusses his terrific new six-part series on coronavirus “conspiracy theories” and free speech. He notes that the coronavirus crisis has become a convenient pretext for ramping up internet censorship—and that the mainstream media that endlessly harp on Western “freedom” versus Chinese “authoritarianism” are themselves often the worst enemies of free speech, as exemplified by the coordinated attack on American Herald Tribune by mockingbird presstitutes embedded in CNN and The Washington Post.

  1. Massive in-depth research by Hall.

    Landis says. “You want [the audience] to accept, no matter how outrageous what’s going on.” – https://www.neh.gov/article/fake-news-orson-welles-war-worlds-80

    We’re all paying attention on the field off play when we should be laser focused on who owns the broadcast and publishing licenses and who dictates what is being transmitted over the airwaves.

    The real story is how a billion-plus people fully believe the official narrative of what’s going on in Wuhan and how this huge mass of the population can now be coaxed to move in any direction by groups controlling political and institutional power.

    What kind of emotional footprint and controlling mechanism has been placed on the underdeveloped minds of the youth throughout the world? Who has the power to manipulate these kids by using a fabricated fear of acquiring a mysterious virus?

    Could Tony provide a source other than Rense, for that speech? If it exists, I would like to read it. But it does seem kind of strange and dubious.

    Also, the Indian scientists who published the paper on how there has been discovered some snippets of genetic code from the HIV virus that’s in the coronavirus — the paper was never peer-reviewed and I believe has been debunked.

    Wonder if Tony has considered the possibility that the paper from the Indian scientists is a psyop, orchestrated together with the U.S.

    Just because it’s Indian scientists — from a country like India that is ostensibly neutral — doesn’t mean it’s unlikely that it’s some sort of ploy since India and America/Israel are actually pretty close.

    Well, I guess Tony did consider the possibility of an Indian psyop at one point in the podcast.

  6. @An_Engineer

    You should never believe any study until it’s been debunked.

    Well, it is a bio-war attack, so it needs to be contained regardless of what the public knows.

    You should never trust the words of someone who thinks way too much of himself and believes that he’s made a witty remark.

  9. BLAST search of the 2019-ncov against other betavoronaviruses have revealed that the Amino acid sequence of the S protein after the PRAA insert completely unchanged when compared to RaTG13 despite a change of 81 nucleotides within that domain.
    BLAST search QHD43416 from 685 to 1124 and see it yourself. Also MN908947 from 23615 to 25172.
    In comparison, other betacoronaviruses normally have an amino acid change per ~12 nucleotide change wi the in this region, implying for a minimum of 6 amino acid changes that should have taken place if the official natural evolution story is to be believed(which there was none)
    The reason? Synthetically created genetic constructs are codon-optimized for the organism it target: silent mutations are used to match the codon preference of that specific protein to that of the organism you want to express the protein within, which in this case, expressing a bat-optimized protein within human cells.
    The other AA-matched regions also have this enormous RNA changes that are completely silent— indicating the S protein gene is a recombinant construct with a bat S-protein scaffold and a ACE2 RBD derived from a yet-to-be-known source, with the RNA sequence specifically optimized through the use of silent mutations to be optimally expressed in humans—either a vaccine experiment or a Bioweapon.

    I searched for the General Chi speech and found different versions of it including this much fuller more developed version on the Pakistan Defence site
