The 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy possibly ranks as the single most famous event of the twentieth century.

For nearly sixty years, there have been widespread suspicions that he died at the hands of a conspiracy, as did his brother Robert a few years later. Although these “conspiracy theories” have been ignored or dismissed by nearly our entire mainstream media, they have inspired hundreds or thousands of books and films along with countless articles, and have been widely believed by large portions of the American public. The resulting loss of faith in our major institutions has been dramatic, leading to today’s intense popular skepticism on so many other issues, whether justified or unjustified.

Our government has still never released all of its official records on the death of our 35th President, but after almost six decades that monumental cover-up may finally be starting to collapse.

Tucker Carlson has the most popular cable news show, and late last week he aired an explosive segment in which he declared that the JFK assassination had been the work of a conspiracy, with our own CIA heavily involved. His nightly broadcast audience is over 3 million and just one copy of his Youtube video has already been watched 1.4 million times. So these shocking claims from a major media outlet have now reached many millions of ordinary Americans, probably more than anything else on this topic in the thirty years since Oliver Stone’s Oscar-winning film JFK was playing in the theaters.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is a prominent public figure and best-selling author, nephew of the slain President and son of his murdered brother. He praised Carlson’s show as “the most courageous newscast in 60 years,” and declared: “The CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’etat from which our democracy has never recovered.”

These incendiary remarks were Retweeted more than 33,000 times with over 5 million views. So perhaps after more than two generations, the propaganda-bubble created by the dishonest 1964 Warren Commission may finally be starting to collapse.

As a consequence, my own past writings on the subject have received a burst of renewed attention:

 

Until a dozen years ago, I had never questioned the official narrative of the Kennedy assassination, and almost none of my own work on this topic has been original. I merely read the existing books and articles and drew my own conclusions, then published those findings.

But by purest coincidence, another massive cover-up may also now be collapsing, on a topic that has been my central focus for the last couple of years.

The global Covid epidemic has been one of the most important world events of the last hundred years, probably only rivaled by the two world wars and the Great Depression. More than 18 million people have already died, including over a million Americans, and the daily lives of many billions have been enormously disrupted.

Beginning in April 2020, I have published a long series of articles arguing that there is strong perhaps overwhelming evidence that the Covid outbreak was the result of an American biowarfare attack against China (and Iran).

But given the tremendous importance of the issue, I’ve been very disappointed that so few others anywhere on the Internet have come forward to raise similar suspicions or even merely to mention my own controversial analysis. Since the early days of 2020, there has been an enormous amount of discussion on almost all other aspects of the global pandemic and its consequences, yet only an infinitesimal sliver has touched upon the apparent evidence of American foreknowledge and plausible culpability. However, that may finally be starting to change.

Earlier this month, the Daily Sceptic, a British webzine often focused on Covid-related issues, published an excellent article by editor Will Jones that independently raised some of the same issues, particularly focusing upon the secret DIA report produced in November 2019 that seemingly implied foreknowledge of the Wuhan outbreak.

This piece was later republished by the Infowars and Brownstone Institute websites, bringing it to much wider attention, including my own. Meanwhile, Toby Young, the prominent British public intellectual who had founded the webzine, Tweeted it out to his 240,000 followers:

The Brownstone institute has also been very heavily focused on Covid issues, and its editor Jeffrey Tucker soon published a somewhat related article noting the extremely suspicious timing of America’s 2019 Crimson Contagion simulation. That eight month federal/state exercise had been run by Robert Kadlec, our country’s chief biowarfare advocate, and was aimed at preparing ourselves against infection from any dangerous respiratory virus that might hypothetically arise in China, with the effort concluding just before the Covid virus suddenly appeared in Wuhan.

The author declared it “the most intriguing element” he’d ever encountered in his years of writing about Covid and repeatedly Tweeted it out to his 137,000 followers, while it was also republished on the Daily Sceptic website.

 

Over the last couple of years a large alternative community of Covid-oriented websites, podcasters, and Tweeters has sprung up, with its members regularly reading and citing each others’ work. These writers and publications have often taken positions on the epidemic completely contrary to those of the political establishment and its mainstream media allies, and despite considerable censorship they have successfully reached an enormous global audience. Their primary focus has been on issues such as questioning the potential dangers of the virus and the effectiveness and advisability of the public health measures taken to combat it, including lockdowns and social distancing, as well as the highly-controversial Covid vaccines.

I haven’t been personally involved in any of these issues, and indeed my own views have generally been much closer to those of the mainstream establishment, not too different from what might be found in the New York Times or the Economist. As a consequence, I’ve never participated in that particular alternative ecosystem, nor even closely followed its activities. But if some of its leading members may now be starting to focus on the origins of the Covid epidemic, the consequences could be enormous.

Millions or tens of millions of people worldwide ultimately draw their Covid information from what might be called that alt-Covid community, and if those websites and writers began to carefully consider that particular issue, I think the world—and America’s own political system—could soon change in very dramatic ways.

From the beginning, I’ve argued that the evidence suggesting direct American foreknowledge and involvement in the global epidemic was so strong that if it were merely to gain a reasonable measure of public attention, the issue would become unstoppable. If our citizenry began to seriously suspect that over a million Americans died from the blowback of a failed biowarfare attack by rogue elements of our own government, the political consequences would be incalculable, quite possibly leading to the fall of America’s ruling regime. There have been few stories of comparable magnitude in the entire history of the world.

Although my own Covid/Biowarfare articles total well over 100,000 words, some of the most striking evidence for this explosive hypothesis can be summarized in just the following few paragraphs, extracted from those much longer works.

For example, in 2017 Trump brought in Robert Kadlec, who since the 1990s had been one of America’s leading biowarfare advocates. The following year in 2018 a mysterious viral epidemic hit China’s poultry industry and in 2019, another mysterious viral epidemic devastated China’s pork industry…

From the earliest days of the administration, leading Trump officials had regarded China as America’s most formidable geopolitical adversary, and orchestrated a policy of confrontation. Then from January to August 2019, Kadlec’s department ran the “Crimson Contagion” simulation exercise, involving the hypothetical outbreak of a dangerous respiratory viral disease in China, which eventually spreads into the United States, with the participants focusing on the necessary measures to control it in this country. As one of America’s foremost biowarfare experts, Kadlec had emphasized the unique effectiveness of bioweapons as far back as the late 1990s and we must commend him for his considerable prescience in having organized a major viral epidemic exercise in 2019 that was so remarkably similar to what actually began in the real world just a few months later.

With leading Trump officials greatly enamored of biowarfare, fiercely hostile to China, and running large-scale 2019 simulations on the consequences of a mysterious viral outbreak in that country, it seems entirely unreasonable to completely disregard the possibility that such extremely reckless plans may have been privately discussed and eventually implemented, though probably without presidential authorization.

But with the horrific consequences of our own later governmental inaction being obvious, elements within our intelligence agencies have sought to demonstrate that they were not the ones asleep at the switch. Earlier this month, an ABC News story cited four separate government sources to reveal that as far back as late November, a special medical intelligence unit within our Defense Intelligence Agency had produced a report warning that an out-of-control disease epidemic was occurring in the Wuhan area of China, and widely distributed that document throughout the top ranks of our government, warning that steps should be taken to protect US forces based in Asia. After the story aired, a Pentagon spokesman officially denied the existence of that November report, while various other top level government and intelligence officials refused to comment. But a few days later, Israeli television mentioned that in November American intelligence had indeed shared such a report on the Wuhan disease outbreak with its NATO and Israeli allies, thus seeming to independently confirm the complete accuracy of the original ABC News story and its several government sources.

It therefore appears that elements of the Defense Intelligence Agency were aware of the deadly viral outbreak in Wuhan more than a month before any officials in the Chinese government itself. Unless our intelligence agencies have pioneered the technology of precognition, I think this may have happened for the same reason that arsonists have the earliest knowledge of future fires.

According to these multiply-sourced mainstream media accounts, by “the second week of November” our Defense Intelligence Agency was already preparing a secret report warning of a “cataclysmic” disease outbreak taking place in Wuhan. Yet at that point, probably no more than a couple of dozen individuals had been infected in that city of 11 million, with few of those yet having any serious symptoms. The implications are rather obvious. Furthermore:

As the coronavirus gradually began to spread beyond China’s own borders, another development occurred that greatly multiplied my suspicions. Most of these early cases had occurred exactly where one might expect, among the East Asian countries bordering China. But by late February Iran had become the second epicenter of the global outbreak. Even more surprisingly, its political elites had been especially hard-hit, with a full 10% of the entire Iranian parliament soon infected and at least a dozen of its officials and politicians dying of the disease, including some who were quite senior. Indeed, Neocon activists on Twitter began gleefully noting that their hated Iranian enemies were now dropping like flies.

Let us consider the implications of these facts. Across the entire world the only political elites that have yet suffered any significant human losses have been those of Iran, and they died at a very early stage, before significant outbreaks had even occurred almost anywhere else in the world outside China. Thus, we have America assassinating Iran’s top military commander on Jan. 2nd and then just a few weeks later large portions of the Iranian ruling elites became infected by a mysterious and deadly new virus, with many of them soon dying as a consequence. Could any rational individual possibly regard this as a mere coincidence?

The Iranians themselves were well aware of these facts, and their top political and military leaders publicly accused America of an illegal biowarfare attack against their own country and China, with their former president even filing an official protest with the United Nations. But although these explosive charges were widely reported in the Iranian press, they were completely ignored by the American media so that almost no Americans ever became aware of them.

From April 2020 onward, my articles have attracted substantial readership, accumulating roughly a million pageviews, while the eBook version has been downloaded around 14,000 times.

Even more encouraging has been the viewership of several of my podcast interviews from earlier this year, which have now broken 2.4 million views on Rumble.
