DARPA recently spent millions on research involving bats and coronaviruses, as well as gene editing “bioweapons” prior to the recent coronavirus outbreak. Now, “strategic allies” of the agency have been chosen to develop a genetic material-based vaccine to halt the potential epidemic.

WASHINGTON D.C. – In recent weeks, concern over the emergence of a novel coronavirus in China has grown exponentially as media, experts and government officials around the world have openly worried that this new disease has the potential to develop into a global pandemic.

As concerns about the future of the ongoing outbreak have grown, so too have the number of theories speculating about the outbreak’s origin, many of which blame a variety of state actors and/or controversial billionaires. This has inevitably led to efforts to clamp down on “misinformation” related to the coronavirus outbreak from both mainstream media outlets and major social media platforms.

However, while many of these theories are clearly speculative, there is also verifiable evidence regarding the recent interest of one controversial U.S. government agency in novel coronaviruses, specifically those transmitted from bats to humans. That agency, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), began spending millions on such research in 2018 and some of those Pentagon-funded studies were conducted at known U.S. military bioweapons labs bordering China and resulted in the discovery of dozens of new coronavirus strains as recently as last April. Furthermore, the ties of the Pentagon’s main biodefense lab to a virology institute in Wuhan, China — where the current outbreak is believed to have begun — have been unreported in English language media thus far.

While it remains entirely unknown as to what caused the outbreak, the details of DARPA’s and the Pentagon’s recent experimentation are clearly in the public interest, especially considering that the very companies recently chosen to develop a vaccine to combat the coronavirus outbreak are themselves strategic allies of DARPA. Not only that, but these DARPA-backed companies are developing controversial DNA and mRNA vaccines for this particular coronavirus strain, a category of vaccine that has never previously been approved for human use in the United States.

Yet, as fears of the pandemic potential of coronavirus grow, these vaccines are set to be rushed to market for public use, making it important for the public to be aware of DARPA’s recent experiments on coronaviruses, bats and gene editing technologies and their broader implications.

Examining the Recent Wuhan-Bioweapon Narrative

As the coronavirus outbreak has come to dominate headlines in recent weeks, several media outlets have promoted claims that the reported epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, China was also the site of laboratories allegedly linked to a Chinese government biowarfare program.

However, upon further examination of the sourcing for this serious claim, these supposed links between the outbreak and an alleged Chinese bioweapons program have come from two highly dubious sources.

For instance, the first outlet to report on this claim was Radio Free Asia, the U.S.-government funded media outlet targeting Asian audiences that used to be run covertly by the CIA and named by the New York Times as a key part in the agency’s “worldwide propaganda network.” Though it is no longer run directly by the CIA, it is now managed by the government-funded Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), which answers directly to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was CIA director immediately prior to his current post at the head of the State Department.

In other words, Radio Free Asia and other BBG-managed media outlets are legal outlets for U.S. government propaganda. Notably, the long-standing ban on the domestic use of U.S. government propaganda on U.S. citizens was lifted in 2013, with the official justification of allowing the government to “effectively communicate in a credible way” and to better combat “al-Qaeda’s and other violent extremists’ influence.”

Returning to the subject at hand, Radio Free Asia’s recent report on the alleged origins of the outbreak being linked to a Chinese state-linked virology center cited only Ren Ruihong, the former head of the medical assistance department at the Chinese Red Cross, for that claim. Ruihong has been cited as an expert in several Radio Free Asia reports on disease outbreaks in China, but has not been cited as an expert by any other English-language media outlet.

Ruihong told Radio Free Asia that:

“It’s a new type of mutant coronavirus.They haven’t made public the genetic sequence, because it is highly contagious…Genetic engineering technology has gotten to such a point now, and Wuhan is home to a viral research center that is under the aegis of the China Academy of Sciences, which is the highest level of research facility in China.”

Though Ruihong did not directly say that the Chinese government was making a bioweapon at the Wuhan facility, she did imply that genetic experiments at the facility may have resulted in the creation of this new “mutant coronavirus” at the center of the outbreak.

With Radio Free Asia and its single source having speculated about Chinese government links to the creation of the new coronavirus, the Washington Times soon took it much farther in a report titled “Virus-hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese bio-warfare program.” That article, much like Radio Free Asia’s earlier report, cites a single source for that claim, former Israeli military intelligence biowarfare specialist Dany Shoham.

Yet, upon reading the article, Shoham does not even directly make the claim cited in the article’s headline, as he only told the Washington Times that: “Certain laboratories in the [Wuhan] institute have probably been engaged, in terms of research and development, in Chinese [biological weapons], at least collaterally, yet not as a principal facility of the Chinese BW alignment (emphasis added).”

While Shoham’s claims are clearly speculative, it is telling that the Washington Times would bother to cite him at all, especially given the key role he played in promoting false claims that the 2001 Anthrax attacks was the work of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. Shoham’s assertions about Iraq’s government and weaponized Anthrax, which were used to bolster the case for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, have since been proven completely false, as Iraq was found to have neither the chemical or biological “weapons of mass destruction” that “experts” like Shoham had claimed.

Beyond Shoham’s own history of making suspect claims, it is also worth noting that Shoham’s previous employer, Israeli military intelligence, has a troubling past with bioweapons. For instance, in the late 1990s, it was reported by several outlets that Israel was in the process of developing a genetic bioweapon that would target Arabs, specifically Iraqis, but leave Israeli Jews unaffected.

Given the dubious past of Shoham and the clearly speculative nature of both his claims and those made in the Radio Free Asia report, one passage in the Washington Times article is particularly telling about why these claims have recently surfaced:

“One ominous sign, said a U.S. official, is that the false rumors since the outbreak began several weeks ago have begun circulating on the Chinese Internet claiming the virus is part of a U.S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons. That could indicate China is preparing propaganda outlets to counter future charges the new virus escaped from one of Wuhan’s civilian or defense research laboratories (emphasis added).”

However, as seen in that very article, accusations that the coronavirus escaped from a Chinese-state-linked laboratory is hardly a future charge as both the Washington Times and Radio Free Asia have already been making that claim. Instead, what this passage suggests is that the reports in both Radio Free Asia and the Washington Times were responses to the claims circulating within China that the outbreak is linked to a “U.S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons.”

Though most English-language media outlets to date have not examined such a possibility, there is considerable supporting evidence that deserves to be examined. For instance, not only was the U.S. military, including its controversial research arm — the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), recently funding studies in and near China that discovered new, mutant coronaviruses originating from bats, but the Pentagon also became recently concerned about the potential use of bats as bioweapons.

Bats as Bioweapons

As the ongoing coronavirus outbreak centered in China has spread to other countries and been blamed for a growing number of deaths, a consensus has emerged that this particular virus, currently classified as a “novel [i.e. new] coronavirus,” is believed to have originated in bats and was transmitted to humans in Wuhan, China via a seafood market that also traded exotic animals. So-called “wet” markets, like the one in Wuhan, were previously blamed for past deadly coronavirus outbreaks in China, such as the 2003 outbreak of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

In addition, one preliminary study on the coronavirus responsible for the current outbreak found that the receptor, Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2), is not only the same as that used by the SARS coronavirus, but that East Asians present a much higher ratio of lung cells that express that receptor than the other ethnicities (Caucasian and African-American) included in the study. However, such findings are preliminary and the sample size is too small to draw any definitive conclusions from that preliminary data.

Two years ago, media reports began discussing the Pentagon’s sudden concern that bats could be used as biological weapons, particularly in spreading coronaviruses and other deadly diseases. The Washington Post asserted that the Pentagon’s interest in investigating the potential use of bats to spread weaponized and deadly diseases was because of alleged Russian efforts to do the same. However, those claims regarding this Russian interest in using bats as bioweapons date back to the 1980s when the Soviet Union engaged in covert research involving the Marburg virus, research that did not even involve bats and which ended with the Soviet Union’s collapse in 1991.

Like much of the Pentagon’s controversial research programs, the bats as bioweapons research has been framed as defensive, despite the fact that no imminent threat involving bat-propagated bioweapons has been acknowledged. However, independent scientists have recently accused the Pentagon, particularly its research arm DARPA, of claiming to be engaged in research it says is “defensive” but is actually “offensive.”

The most recent example of this involved DARPA’s “Insect Allies” program, which officially “aims to protect the U.S. agricultural food supply by delivering protective genes to plants via insects, which are responsible for the transmission of most plant viruses” and to ensure “food security in the event of a major threat,” according to both DARPA and media reports.

However, a group of well-respected, independent scientists revealed in a scathing analysis of the program that, far from a “defensive” research project, the Insect Allies program was aimed at creating and delivering “new class of biological weapon.” The scientists, writing in the journal Science and led by Richard Guy Reeves, from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Biology in Germany, warned that DARPA’s program — which uses insects as the vehicle for as horizontal environmental genetic alteration agents (HEGAAS) — revealed “an intention to develop a means of delivery of HEGAAs for offensive purposes (emphasis added).”

Whatever the real motivation behind the Pentagon’s sudden and recent concern about bats being used as a vehicle for bioweapons, the U.S. military has spent millions of dollars over the past several years funding research on bats, the deadly viruses they can harbor — including coronaviruses — and how those viruses are transmitted from bats to humans.

For instance, DARPA spent $10 million on one project in 2018 “to unravel the complex causes of bat-borne viruses that have recently made the jump to humans, causing concern among global health officials.” Another research project backed by both DARPA and NIH saw researchers at Colorado State University examine the coronavirus that causes Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) in bats and camels “to understand the role of these hosts in transmitting disease to humans.” Other U.S. military-funded studies, discussed in detail later in this report, discovered several new strains of novel coronaviruses carried by bats, both within China and in countries bordering China.

Many of these recent research projects are related to DARPA’s Preventing Emerging Pathogenic Threats, or PREEMPT program, which was officially announced in April 2018. PREEMPT focuses specifically on animal reservoirs of disease, specifically bats, and DARPA even noted in its press release in the program that it “is aware of biosafety and biosecurity sensitivities that could arise” due to the nature of the research.

DARPA’s announcement for PREEMPT came just a few months after the U.S. government decided to controversially end a moratorium on so-called “gain-of-function” studies involving dangerous pathogens. VICE News explained “gain-of-function” studies as follows:

“Known as ‘gain-of-function’ studies, this type of research is ostensibly about trying to stay one step ahead of nature. By making super-viruses that are more pathogenic and easily transmissible, scientists are able to study the way these viruses may evolve and how genetic changes affect the way a virus interacts with its host. Using this information, the scientists can try to pre-empt the natural emergence of these traits by developing antiviral medications that are capable of staving off a pandemic (emphasis added).”

In addition, while both DARPA’s PREEMPT program and the Pentagon’s open interest in bats as bioweapons were announced in 2018, the U.S. military — specifically the Department of Defense’s Cooperative Threat Reduction Program — began funding research involving bats and deadly pathogens, including the coronaviruses MERS and SARS, a year prior in 2017. One of those studies focused on “Bat-Borne Zoonotic Disease Emergence in Western Asia” and involved the Lugar Center in Georgia, identified by former Georgian government officials, the Russian government and independent, investigative journalist Dilyana Gaytandzhieva as a covert U.S. bioweapons lab.

It is also important to point out the fact that the U.S. military’s key laboratories involving the study of deadly pathogens, including coronaviruses, Ebola and others, was suddenly shut down last July after the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identified major “biosafety lapses” at the facility.

The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) facility at Fort Detrick, Maryland — the U.S. military’s lead laboratory for “biological defense” research since the late 1960s — was forced to halt all research it was conducting with a series of deadly pathogens after the CDC found that it lacked “sufficient systems in place to decontaminate wastewater” from its highest-security labs and failure of staff to follow safety procedures, among other lapses. The facility contains both level 3 and level 4 biosafety labs. While it is unknown if experiments involving coronaviruses were ongoing at the time, USAMRIID has recently been involved in research borne out of the Pentagon’s recent concern about the use of bats as bioweapons.

The decision to shut down USAMRIID garnered surprisingly little media coverage, as did the CDC’s surprising decision to allow the troubled facility to “partially resume” research late last November even though the facility was and is still not at “full operational capability.” The USAMRIID’s problematic record of safety at such facilities is of particular concern in light of the recent coronavirus outbreak in China. As this report will soon reveal, this is because USAMRIID has a decades-old and close partnership with the University of Wuhan’s Institute of Medical Virology, which is located in the epicenter of the current outbreak.

The Pentagon in Wuhan?

Beyond the U.S. military’s recent expenditures on and interest in the use of bats of bioweapons, it is also worth examining the recent studies the military has funded regarding bats and “novel coronaviruses,” such as that behind the recent outbreak, that have taken place within or in close proximity to China.

For instance, one study conducted in Southern China in 2018 resulted in the discovery of 89 new “novel bat coronavirus” strains that use the same receptor as the coronavirus known as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). That study was jointly funded by the Chinese government’s Ministry of Science and Technology, USAID — an organization long alleged to be a front for U.S. intelligence, and the U.S. National Institute of Health — which has collaborated with both the CIA and the Pentagon on infectious disease and bioweapons research.

The authors of the study also sequenced the complete genomes for two of those strains and also noted that existing MERS vaccines would be ineffective in targeting these viruses, leading them to suggest that one should be developed in advance. This did not occur.

Another U.S. government-funded study that discovered still more new strains of “novel bat coronavirus” was published just last year. Titled “Discovery and Characterization of Novel Bat Coronavirus Lineages from Kazakhstan,” focused on “the bat fauna of central Asia, which link China to eastern Europe” and the novel bat coronavirus lineages discovered during the study were found to be “closely related to bat coronaviruses from China, France, Spain, and South Africa, suggesting that co-circulation of coronaviruses is common in multiple bat species with overlapping geographical distributions.” In other words, the coronaviruses discovered in this study were identified in bat populations that migrate between China and Kazakhstan, among other countries, and is closely related to bat coronaviruses in several countries, including China.

The study was entirely funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, specifically the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) as part of a project investigating coronaviruses similar to MERS, such as the aforementioned 2018 study. Yet, beyond the funding of this 2019 study, the institutions involved in conducting this study are also worth noting given their own close ties to the U.S. military and government.

The study’s authors are affiliated with either the Kazakhstan-based Research Institute for Biological Safety Problems and/or Duke University. The Research Institute for Biological Safety Problems, though officially a part of Kazakhstan’s National Center for Biotechnology, has received millions from the U.S. government, most of it coming from the Pentagon’s Cooperative Threat Reduction Program. It is the Kazakhstan government’s official depository of “highly dangerous animal and bird infections, with a collection of 278 pathogenic strains of 46 infectious diseases.” It is part of a network of Pentagon-funded “bioweapons labs” throughout the Central Asian country, which borders both of the U.S.’ top rival states — China and Russia.

Duke University’s involvement with this study is also interesting given that Duke is a key partner of DARPA’s Pandemic Prevention Platform (P3) program, which officially aims “to dramatically accelerate discovery, integration, pre-clinical testing, and manufacturing of medical countermeasures against infectious diseases.” The first step of the Duke/DARPA program involves the discovery of potentially threatening viruses and “develop[ing] methods to support viral propagation, so that virus can be used for downstream studies.”

Duke University is also jointly partnered with China’s Wuhan University, which is based in the city where the current coronavirus outbreak began, which resulted in the opening of the China-based Duke Kunshan University (DKU) in 2018. Notably, China’s Wuhan University — in addition to its partnership with Duke — also includes a multi-lab Institute of Medical Virology that has worked closely with the US Army Medical Research Institute for Infectious Diseases since the 1980s, according to its website. As previously noted, the USAMRIID facility in the U.S. was shut down last July for failures to abide by biosafety and proper waste disposal procedures, but was allowed to partially resume some experiments late last November.

The Pentagon’s Dark History of Germ Warfare

The U.S. military has a troubling past of having used disease as a weapon during times of war. One example involved the U.S.’ use of germ warfare during the Korean War, when it targeted both North Korea and China by dropping diseased insects and voles carrying a variety of pathogens — including bubonic plague and hemorrhagic fever — from planes in the middle of the night. Despite the mountain of evidence and the testimony of U.S. soldiers involved in that program, the U.S. government and military denied the claims and ordered the destruction of relevant documentation.

In the post World War II era, other examples of U.S. research aimed at developing biological weapons have emerged, some of which have recently received media attention. One such example occurred this past July, when the U.S. House of Representatives demanded information from the U.S. military on its past efforts to weaponize insects and Lyme disease between 1950 and 1975.

The U.S. has claimed that it has not pursued offensive biological weapons since 1969 and this has been further supported by the U.S.’ ratification of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC), which went into effect in 1975. However, there is extensive evidence that the U.S. has continued to covertly research and develop such weapons in the years since, much of it conducted abroad and outsourced to private companies, yet still funded by the U.S. military. Several investigators, including Dilyana Gaytandzhieva, have documented how the U.S. produces deadly viruses, bacteria and other toxins at facilities outside of the U.S. — many of them in Eastern Europe, Africa and South Asia — in clear violation of the BWC.

Aside from the military’s own research, the controversial neoconservative think tank, the now defunct Project for a New American Century (PNAC), openly promoted the use of a race-specific genetically modified bioweapon as a “politically useful tool.” In what is arguably the think tank’s most controversial document, titled “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” there are a few passages that openly discuss the utility of bioweapons, including the following sentences:

“…combat likely will take place in new dimensions: in space, “cyber-space,” and perhaps the world of microbes…advanced forms of biological warfare that can “target” specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”

Though numerous members of PNAC were prominent in the George W. Bush administration, many of its more controversial members have again risen to political prominence in the Trump administration.

Several years after “Rebuilding America’s Defenses” was published, the U.S. Air Force published a document entitled “Biotechnology: Genetically Engineered Pathogens,” which contains the following passage:

“The JASON group, composed of academic scientists, served as technical advisers to the U. S. government. Their study generated six broad classes of genetically engineered pathogens that could pose serious threats to society. These include but are not limited to binary biological weapons, designer genes, gene therapy as a weapon, stealth viruses, host-swapping diseases, and designer diseases (emphasis added).”

Concerns about Pentagon experiments with biological weapons have garnered renewed media attention, particularly after it was revealed in 2017 that DARPA was the top funder of the controversial “gene drive” technology, which has the power to permanently alter the genetics of entire populations while targeting others for extinction. At least two of DARPA’s studies using this controversial technology were classified and “focused on the potential military application of gene drive technology and use of gene drives in agriculture,” according to media reports.

The revelation came after an organization called the ETC Group obtained over 1,000 emails on the military’s interest in the technology as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. Co-director of the ETC Group Jim Thomas said that this technology may be used as a biological weapon:

“Gene drives are a powerful and dangerous new technology and potential biological weapons could have disastrous impacts on peace, food security and the environment, especially if misused, The fact that gene drive development is now being primarily funded and structured by the US military raises alarming questions about this entire field.”

Though the exact motivation behind the military’s interest in such technology is unknown, the Pentagon has been open about the fact that it is devoting much of its resources towards the containment of what it considers the two greatest threats to U.S. military hegemony: Russia and China. China has been cited as the greatest threat of the two by several Pentagon officials, including John Rood, the Pentagon’s top adviser for defense policy, who described China as the greatest threat to “our way of life in the United States” at the Aspen Security Forum last July.

Since the Pentagon began “redesigning” its policies and research towards a “long war” with Russia and China, the Russian military has accused the U.S. military of harvesting DNA from Russians as part of a covert bioweapon program, a charge that the Pentagon has adamantly denied. Major General Igor Kirillov, the head of the Russian military’s radiation, chemical and biological protection unit who made these claims, also asserted that the U.S. was developing such weapons in close proximity to Russian and Chinese borders.

China has also accused the U.S. military of harvesting DNA from Chinese citizens with ill intentions, such as when 200,000 Chinese farmers were used in 12 genetic experiments without informed consent. Those experiments had been conducted by Harvard researchers as part of a U.S. government-funded project.

Darpa and Its Partners Chosen to Develop Coronavirus Vaccine

Last Thursday, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) announced that it would fund three separate programs in order to promote the development of a vaccine for the new coronavirus responsible for the current outbreak.

CEPI — which describes itself as “a partnership of public, private, philanthropic and civil organizations that will finance and co-ordinate the development of vaccines against high priority public health threats” — was founded in 2017 by the governments of Norway and India along with the World Economic Forum and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Its massive funding and close connections to public, private and non-profit organizations have positioned it to be able to finance the rapid creation of vaccines and widely distribute them.

CEPI’s recent announcement revealed that it would fund two pharmaceutical companies — Inovio Pharmaceuticals and Moderna Inc. — as well as Australia’s University of Queensland, which became a partner of CEPI early last year. Notably, the two pharmaceutical companies chosen have close ties to and/or strategic partnerships with DARPA and are developing vaccines that controversially involve genetic material and/or gene editing. The University of Queensland also has ties to DARPA, but those ties are not related to the university’s biotechnology research, but instead engineering and missile development.

For instance, the top funders of Inovio Pharmaceuticals include both DARPA and the Pentagon’s Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the company has received millions in dollars in grants from DARPA, including a $45 million grant to develop a vaccine for Ebola. Inovio specializes in the creation of DNA immunotherapies and DNA vaccines, which contain genetically engineered DNA that causes the cells of the recipient to produce an antigen and can permanently alter a person’s DNA. Inovio previously developed a DNA vaccine for the Zika virus, but — to date — no DNA vaccine has been approved for use in humans in the United States. Inovio was also recently awarded over $8 million from the U.S. military to develop a small, portable intradermal device for delivering DNA vaccines jointly developed by Inovio and USAMRIID.

However, the CEPI grant to combat coronavirus may change that, as it specifically funds Inovio’s efforts to continue developing its DNA vaccine for the coronavirus that causes MERS. Inovio’s MERS vaccine program began in 2018 in partnership with CEPI in a deal worth $56 million. The vaccine currently under development uses “Inovio’s DNA Medicines platform to deliver optimized synthetic antigenic genes into cells, where they are translated into protein antigens that activate an individual’s immune system” and the program is partnered with U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) and the NIH, among others. That program is currently undergoing testing in the Middle East.

Inovio’s collaboration with the U.S. military in regards to DNA vaccines is nothing new, as their past efforts to develop a DNA vaccine for both Ebola and Marburg virus were also part of what Inovio’s CEO Dr. Joseph Kim called its “active biodefense program” that has “garnered multiple grants from the Department of Defense, Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), and other government agencies.”

CEPI’s interest in increasing its support to this MERS-specific program seems at odds with its claim that doing so will combat the current coronavirus outbreak, since MERS and the novel coronavirus in question are not analogous and treatments for certain coronaviruses have been shown to be ineffective against other strains.

It is also worth noting that Inovio Pharmaceuticals was the only company selected by CEPI with direct access to the Chinese pharmaceutical market through its partnership with China’s ApolloBio Corp., which currently has an exclusive license to sell Inovio-made DNA immunotherapy products to Chinese customers.

The second pharmaceutical company that was selected by CEPI to develop a vaccine for the new coronavirus is Moderna Inc., which will develop a vaccine for the novel coronavirus of concern in collaboration with the U.S. NIH and which will be funded entirely by CEPI. The vaccine in question, as opposed to Inovio’s DNA vaccine, will be a messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine. Though different than a DNA vaccine, mRNA vaccines still use genetic material “to direct the body’s cells to produce intracellular, membrane or secreted proteins.”

Moderna’s mRNA treatments, including its mRNA vaccines, were largely developed using a $25 million grant from DARPA and it often touts is strategic alliance with DARPA in press releases. Moderna’s past and ongoing research efforts have included developing mRNA vaccines tailored to an individual’s unique DNA as well as an unsuccessful effort to create a mRNA vaccine for the Zika Virus, which was funded by the U.S. government.

Both DNA and mRNA vaccines involve the introduction of foreign and engineered genetic material into a person’s cells and past studies have found that such vaccines “possess significant unpredictability and a number of inherent harmful potential hazards” and that “there is inadequate knowledge to define either the probability of unintended events or the consequences of genetic modifications.” Nonetheless, the climate of fear surrounding the coronavirus outbreak could be enough for the public and private sector to develop and distribute such controversial treatments due to fear about the epidemic potential of the current outbreak.

However, the therapies being developed by Inovio, Modern and the University of Queensland are in alignment with DARPA’s objectives regarding gene editing and vaccine technology. For instance, in 2015, DARPA geneticist Col. Daniel Wattendorf described how the agency was investigating a “new method of vaccine production [that] would involve giving the body instructions for making certain antibodies. Because the body would be its own bioreactor, the vaccine could be produced much faster than traditional methods and the result would be a higher level of protection.”

According to media reports on Wattendorf’s statements at the time, the vaccine would be developed as follows:

“Scientists would harvest viral antibodies from someone who has recovered from a disease such as flu or Ebola. After testing the antibodies’ ability to neutralize viruses in a petri dish, they would isolate the most effective one, determine the genes needed to make that antibody, and then encode many copies of those genes into a circular snippet of genetic material — either DNA or RNA, that the person’s body would then use as a cookbook to assemble the antibody.”

Though Wattendorf asserted that the effects of those vaccines wouldn’t be permanent, DARPA has since been promoting permanent gene modifications as a means of protecting U.S. troops from biological weapons and infectious disease. “Why is DARPA doing this? [To] protect a soldier on the battlefield from chemical weapons and biological weapons by controlling their genome — having the genome produce proteins that would automatically protect the soldier from the inside out,” then-DARPA director Steve Walker (now with Lockheed Martin) said this past September of the project, known as “Safe Genes.”

Conclusion

Research conducted by the Pentagon, and DARPA specifically, has continually raised concerns, not just in the field of bioweapons and biotechnology, but also in the fields of nanotechnology, robotics and several others. DARPA, for instance, has been developing a series of unsettling research projects that ranges from microchips that can create and delete memories from the human brain to voting machine software that is rife with problems.

Now, as fear regarding the current coronavirus outbreak begins to peak, companies with direct ties to DARPA have been tasked with developing its vaccine, the long-term human and environmental impacts of which are unknown and will remain unknown by the time the vaccine is expected to go to market in a few weeks time.

Furthermore, DARPA and the Pentagon’s past history with bioweapons and their more recent experiments on genetic alteration and extinction technologies as well as bats and coronaviruses in proximity to China have been largely left out of the narrative, despite the information being publicly available. Also left out of the media narrative have been the direct ties of both the USAMRIID and DARPA-partnered Duke University to the city of Wuhan, including its Institute of Medical Virology.

Though much about the origins of the coronavirus outbreak remains unknown, the U.S. military’s ties to the aforementioned research studies and research institutions are worth detailing as such research — while justified in the name of “national security” — has the frightening potential to result in unintended, yet world-altering consequences. The lack of transparency about this research, such as DARPA’s decision to classify its controversial genetic extinction research and the technology’s use as a weapon of war, compounds these concerns. While it is important to avoid reckless speculation as much as possible, it is the opinion of this author that the information in this report is in the public interest and that readers should use this information to reach their own conclusions about the topics discussed herein.

    See nuclear war.

    No future super power will take any kind of attack on it’s population centers without payback.

    Which is why I 99.999% doubt the American govt is stupid enough to do this.

    It seems the Chinese 250 nukes are no longer a strong enough deterrent. They need to build more, enough to make USA, EU, and Israel completely green.

    Then we will all be safe.

    Interesting and thought provoking article. Queensland University is in Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland. Also in Brisbane is the suburb of Hendra, where the Hendra virus was first identified. It too appears to be transmitted by bats to animals and humans.

  6. Why doesn’t China just let this virus spread? It is really only killing the old and/or weak and this will be a burden lifted from the shoulders of the Chinese state.

  11. Another great article by Whitney Webb, thank you. After reading the article I am now more inclined to believe some of the rumors suggesting that the Wuhan Coronavirus was possibly leaked from a biological research lab in Wuhan. Especially after reading about the direct ties of USAMRIID and DARPA-partnered Duke University to the Institute of Medical Virology in Wuhan.

    Also, I read that patient zero was diagnosed on Dec. 1 long before the Chinese official statements of Dec. 31 and the fact that patient zero had no contact with the wet market that was supposed to be the origin of the virus. Of course it’s still early and a great deal of confusion but as someone famously said” “All governments lie”.

    Interesting article. The timing of the outbreak, just before the Chinese new year when they travel all over the country, does make one suspect this could indeed be a bio weapon.

    It would be more to the point to know for certain whether or not any white people have been infected by this particular pathogen or if its victims have all been Asians. The mainstream media seems to omit this fact and by omission pretend it is a trivial detail.

    I have two degrees, one of which is in science, but sadly it is not in biology, so I feel myself ill prepared to draw conclusions from this article. I would be interested to hear from commenters that are educated on the subject. If the virus exclusively or overwhelmingly targets Asians is this indeed conclusive evidence of a bio weapon? Or is this simply normal behavior of viruses in the wild?

  18. The timing of the attack/outbreak is spine chillingly diabolic, launch the virus just prior to the biggest annual migration move of the year akin to launching a bio-weapon prior to the Haj and have almost every Muslim country in the world infected. If someone wanted to get China on its knees using a bio-weapon this was the perfect way to do it using the perfect City Wuhan to do it Since they also have probably a bio weapons lab themselves and the perps have the best plausible deniability excuse in the world – Doh!! look at your own lab first. And connect this to that Macabre coincidence the USM had an unnatural &and perverse interest in Corona Viruses for a quite some time!!

    The other possibilities are an safety lapse in the facility very possible given the appalling safety standards in China or some Chinese Dr. Evil(like the anthrax case). In any case China is facing a disaster, more than 50 million people are in lock down, they are literally bolting doors &and locking people in their houses, Most industry has come to a complete halt, the world is quarantining them, countries after countries are officially banning them and the others are doing it unofficially. Today another city 800 km from Ground Zero got brutally sealed & shutoff, prosperous modern cities are turning into walled off Leper colonies overnight. Worse today it was discovered that our little fiend transmits through feces as well!! That diabolical little shit. It was also revealed that certain SARs virus had transmitted itself thru aerosolized feces. I think it is also very significant because the Chinese have such appalling toilet habits, in public toilets even in restaurants they don’t flush the used paper they throw it into a bin, disgusting &and a possible behavioural vector for the virus to ride on.

    Kudos to Whitney for writing such a well researched and pleasurable read, he beautifully brought up the case for a conspiracy theory and left it that, he never came across as a crackpot like Godfree did when he wrote about this yesterday.

    Stephen Lendman has written persuasively about Israel’s bio weapons lab, its human experiments in S Africa and the ME causing mind-bending horrors, and its work on lethal, ethnic-directed diseases. In Australia about 10 years ago, a Israeli in Chasid garb bizarrely claiming immunity from search as a registered Arboriginal in Queensland, arriving directly from Israel, was intercepted clearing customs in Sydney with bagfuls of heavily rust-infected fruit tree leaves, which he absurdly claimed was for cooking. The overlooked threat is to the US’ food supply, according to a USDA study, which is only a week or so deep with beef. Crop and livestock pandemics might be easily spread from enclaves around the country considered off limits to law enforcement, and such an attack would take this country down nearly as fast as bombing our cities. You’d think the fairly recent hoof and mouth pandemic in England and France should serve as a taste of what’s possible.

    Europeans have already been infected but remained healthy. For instance, a 33-year old man from Bavaria got infected by a Chinese woman, who had family ties to Wuhan, while she was on a brief business trip to Munich. He was then said to have transmitted the virus to other people from the region, who worked at the same company. They are now in quarantine, under observation at a clinic in Munich.

    The corporate media are probably under orders to downplay the issue in order to avoid causing panic in the population, given that surgical masks have sold out everywhere a while ago already.

    The timing of the outbreak, just before the Chinese new year …

    Sometimes, a coincidence is just a coincidence, even where warfare is involved.. The key fact is that flu-type infections are vastly more prevalent during the winter months than during the rest of the year.

    Even assuming that the virus was released maliciously or accidentally either by China or some other power (one can construct various 4D chess scenarios), the primary fact is that it would spread more readily during the winter months, and might not even be noticed if occurring at low intensity during the rest of the year. Of course, China itself and any adversary would be well aware of the custom of Chinese New Year and attendant flows of hundreds of millions of people all across the country. An intentional perpetrator would have regarded this as a bonus, but the key consideration is simply the onset of the colder season.

    With a currently-reported initial discovery on December 1, 2019, we are not seeing anything very suspicious in terms of timing. It is very difficult to diagnose diseases retrospectively, especially where the symptoms are just generic flu symptoms that could have been caused by numerous other strains. AIDS infections appear to have occurred at low frequency back in the 1950s and possibly earlier.

    Malicious release by factions within the Chinese power structure itself is entirely conceivable. The epidemic is seriously hurting the economy and making Xi Jinping’s ruling group look bad. The crisis opens the door to a possible coup by a rival group.

    There has never been a successful bioweapon attack. Yes the US Army gave blankets to the Native Americans which were contaminated with smallpox and the Native Americans had no immunity and it was devastating but I doubt they knew what they were doing.

Oh sure there is a 1 in a Trillion/Trillion chance it could be done but “Highly Unlikely” is most likely. Nature may create a deadly pandemic virus or bacteria but no laboratory has been able to do it. Also, without exception, most DARPA funded work is conducted by the Equivalent of Boeing Rejects. Dumber than dirt. Clowns at best.

Gee do you think that they can make a Bio-weapon when can’t make a new plan the flies (F-35) or a new destroyer that can actually go to sea (Littoral Combat Ship). These are 2 relatively simple Engineering Tasks where all the physics, chemistry etc etc are known. The vast majority of Biology is still a mystery even Genetics.

    Don’t believe for an instant that Molecular Biology and Genetic Engineering is something that is easily accomplished or creates a stable new life form. It does not.

    While I do believe our Government and its Military Branches have many nefarious individuals in their employ, none of them are very capable. The Manhattan Project was a Physics, Chemistry Project where 99% of the knowledge was available at the time of its inception. Just needed an unlimited budget and willing workers.

    The US Government has been dismantling Science for the last 30 years. Knowing the DNA sequence is fairly useless but to the lay person its been made to be the answer to everything. What do you expect with Francis Collins who is still the Director of the NIH and responsible for the waste of money to sequence the Human Genome. Of course its important (Not Really). Know one knows how to read it. Just marketing bullshit, like something from DARPA and the Pentagon. It’s like the new I-Phone. Whoopee doo!!!

    I do know something about this as I spent my professional life as a Biomedical Research Scientist, have a Ph.D. in Biology and was promoted to Full Professor 27 years ago when I was 40 years old. I have discovered multiple Human Genes, sequenced them and used Genetic Engineering to create Genetically Modified Bacteria, Eucaryotic Cells and Mice. Many of these discoveries resulted in multiple US and International Patents, some of which are the foundation for a biotech company currently work multi billions of dollars which has revolutionary drug therapies none of which are based on Genetics or the DNA sequence of my discoveries or Patents.

    In Confucian China, with its consensus-driven policy-making process, trust in government makes rival factions pretty much impossible.

    Purported support for the government among the hoi polloi does not mean that brutal factional infighting cannot occur at the top.

    For one thing, the Bo Xilai incident a few years back showed that there are indeed different factions jostling for power at the top of the party and military hierarchies. In fact, it is impossible to imagine how a system would work where such factions did NOT exist to some extent at the top.

    Moreover, it is difficult to credit the extremely high figure of government support among the general population shown in the graph. The alleged figure of 78% of Chinese claiming to believe that their government works for everyone’s benefit is dubious for several reasons.

    First, China remains a totalitarian country with strict control of any anti-government statement, and universal electronic surveillance and censorship of which all Chinese are keenly aware. In the circumstances, it is surprising that 32% of respondents did NOT express full confidence in their government’s benevolence.

    Second, China has seen dramatic economic growth over the past 4 decades. Many Chinese over, say 40 will equate economic improvements with the conclusion that their government “works for everyone’s benefit.” At the same time, ordinary Chinese are well aware of the breathtaking corruption perpetrated by the party elite at all levels.

    Your argument squares with Whitney Webb (the author).

    East Asians present a much higher ratio of lung cells that express that receptor than the other ethnicities (Caucasian and African-American) included in the study.

    Europeans have already been infected but remained healthy.

    The press is steeped in neo-liberal globo-homo dogma that all the races are “equal.” Since they cling to the dogma like a religion, then don’t expect them to be rational. Also, their paymasters tend to be Jews, so they won’t go against the hand that feeds.

    There are differences in the races, but there is also significant overlap. Think of it like a Venn Diagram.

    Infection ratios will like be different, but I would be willing to bet that it spreads through white and “other non asian” populations; again – it will be a ratio difference based on race differences.

    Why is there no examination or even reference to the Chinese who were removed from the BSL-4 Laboratory in Canada?

    Why is there no examination or even reference to the Chinese nationals who were members of the PLA who were arrested or removed from positions in American institutions?

    Why is there no examination or even reference to the fact Chinese claimed in 2014 the first engineering of a Corona-Virus using human, bat, and civet admixtures based around the ACE-2 Protein pathway?

    Why is there no mention of the Thousand Talents program and the theft of American proprietary information and proprietary materials?

    Why is there no mention of very clear western casualties that have occurred due to this Chinese bio-weapon already? Kids in Utah, police officers in Georgia, young men in Santa Clara in California.

    There is a mention of ‘neo-cons’, why is there no reference to specific gene-bank companies the Chinese have been working with based out of Israel or the Ivy League? Why isn’t Israel mentioned?

    Why is there no real mention of the Ivy League? The Lieber Group?

    How would it be possible in China of all places, for the Pentagon to operate independently in Wuhan? That incongruity is just elided. If the Pentagon, USAID and Chinese Ministry of Science and Technology were working together on CoronaVirus strains, who is China somehow miraculously exculpated? Why were they working together? Why would they work together?

    If Duke University was in Wuhan, how are the Chinese not responsible for that either?

    China is a total surveillance state, overtly, at every level. How is it possible for these ostensibly American institutions to be present in Wuhan where it a) isn’t to the advantage of the Chinese and b) the Chinese aren’t surveilling everything they do?

    What have been China’s relationships with various members of the pre-Trump administrations in the United States?

    What was Facebook doing with China? What was Building 8 doing in China? What did the Jews who owned Building 8 seek to provide China as consideration for market entry into China?

    Why did George Soros have an office in Wuhan?

    Why no mention of Hillary Clinton or Dianne Feinstein’s relations with China?

    What is/was Google Dragon?

    Why were all these Chinese systems being imported into the United States? And US systems and data being exported to China?

    It’s a good article. It just runs the old tired tropes of cohesive nation-states and misses out vast amounts of data that complicate the picture.

    The Deep State knows it has to keep the petro-dollar on top, if it wants to keep control of the world, or at least the West. They can’t have uppity nations like China and Russia backing their currency with gold instead of bullets, so they must be contained

    ________________________________________________________

    China issues Yuan’s at debt from both its State Banks and the lower tier private banks within its system.

    Russian central bank still operates under BIS Basel Rules.

    When Russia and China buy gold, it is for the specific purpose of shoring up FX (Foreign Exchange) which is usually based on dollars.

    The Gold play is to insulate their national debt based currencies from exchange rate fluctuations by storing gold. Russia is buying up all of their mined gold, which allows them to emit more Rubles, to then buy more Russian gold. This is in alignment with Basel Rules.

    So, lets please stop with the Gold nonsense. Metal isn’t money. Scientific and Legal money fluxes in accord with Goods and Services.

    Post Bretton Woods, the WORLD TRADING GOLD STANDARD, used gold to match goods in transit (trading of services and goods outside of a nation’s borders). This gold standard was pretty reasonable, as it then signaled to adjust exchange rates of a nation’s money.

    You may recall, during the mercantile era of Gold, nations would war with each other to recover said gold lost in imbalanced trade. The mercantile era would roughly coincide with Britain’s Colonial Era. Going way back in time, the Greeks warred with the Persians because of interest on gold, and then they had to go to war to recover it.

    Why war in mercantile era? Because internal to an economy, nation’s had bank credit riding on top of their gold in a fractional reserve ratio. So, loss of gold to international trade imbalance, amplified losses of purchasing power internal to National economy.

    You can make gold work, for example in the gold trading standard – which ultimately failed in Nixon’s closing of the gold window, or humans can pull heads out of rectum, and figure out that money = law.

    If humans want to ignore this iron law of economics, and take rents and usury on one another, that is a different story, and there is no god=gold.

    This miss-identification of metal as money is a big problem, and shows how low humans are in their understanding of money.

    I for one, welcome our new AI overlords, as they will have the mental digits to understand things average sheeple people cannot. Maybe humanity, if it continues on its dysgenic cycle of lowered IQ and violence, is doomed for the ash pile.

    Good point. Seems they caved during the East India Company’s Opium Wars and who’s banner the US Government still proudly waves with minor alterations of course.

    Never read the book but have seen the movie several times. Good action flick requires the usual suspension of disbelief. Another one in the same genre is a little known gem starring Burt Lancaster as the evil officer from WHO called the Cassandra Crossing:

    https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0074292/

    Don’t let the low rating fool you. Many on IMDB rating movies are brain washed morons. I mean who else would give a rating of 7.5 for United 93?

    Don’t know that much about plagues like the ones that raged through Europe and the Americas that wiped out the Aztec Civilization but from what little I know the former was a matter of hygiene and the mistaken belief that cats were plague carrier when in fact it was the rats they were killing and the latter was because it is what is known as a virgin soil epidemic.

    I doubt if anything like that is likely to occur again unless the planet is infected by an extraterrestrial bug like the one in the Andromeda Strain. Again another good movie. Also there’s been cases of bubonic plague reported but they’ve had little effect on the population in general because the local health departments are pretty hep on handling them rapidly these days.

    The Spanish Flue was quite tragic and traumatic but that was mild compared to the two earlier ones mentioned as far as fatality rates. 20 million out of population 2 billion is shocking but still mild compared to a 70 to 90% fatality rate.

    Yeah I totally agree with you on the total hypocrisy of the West “defending” more like using the Uighurs while totally ignoring the genocide in their own back yard being carried out by their “greatest ally”.

    Personally I think this whole thing with China will have the unintended consequence of hurling it into Russia’s geopolitical orbit. China is not the China of the 19th Century and has an economic weapon that they can use on the West once they realize what’s going on that could totally devastate the financial markets as we know them. In other words a nuclear option that could take down the WB, IMF and destroy the Bretton Woods Agreement probably taking out the Fed and the City of London which would be doing us all a favor really except maybe 1% 🙂

    It is quite possible that the confluence of these infections does indicate planned action by one or more actors.

    My point is much narrower – assuming intentional causation, Chinese New Year as such is unlikely to have been a determinative factor. Put more simply, a bio-warfare strategy would have been designed around the colder season as a whole, not specifically around the date of Chinese New Year. Thus, for purposes of analysis and surmising who may have done what, the date of Chinese New Year should best be ignored as it is more likely to be noise.

    Moreover, it is important to remember that the infection may have (been) started much earlier than the currently known date of December 1, 2019. Back then, the new type of infection was unknown, and even now, it would not be easy for a layperson to distinguish a coronavirus infection from other flu strains. Quite a few individuals may have been infected much earlier, suffered a bout of the flu, and then recovered without significant ill effects, without having started an ongoing chains of infection.

    The West is run by globo-homo, which in turn is finance capital.

    The “owners” of finance capital are hidden oligarchs who maneuver the polity.

    They saw China post 1995 as a large market of reasonably high IQ people, who were not in debt.

    China swept their communist era debt into the trash-can in a jubilee of sorts, in order to get preferred trading status, which Bill Clinton as a dutiful CFR agent allowed. Then it was off to the races by screwing over Mexico and using China labor instead. (The subsequent mexinvasion is a knock on effect of this Clinton era maneuver.)

    The banksters, who actually believe their own propaganda, believe that bank Capital is always over labor, and Capital is fungible (meaning it can go wherever to make gains.)

    Why do you think wall street green-mailed American captains of industry, to then get the China price? Industry in the U.S. was forced to leave by various trickery from the finance class, to then get some of that sweet sweet Chinese wage arbitrage. It is basically a sophisticated form of Usury – a word that is normed out of our consciousness.

    The finance over-class is actually Jewish, it is no longer WASP. Jews actually believe their false nostrums about money and economy. Jews are not part of the logos, but instead are on the wrong side of history – to our ever lasting detriment.

    I’ve explained elsewhere here at Unz review, how China is now running the American system of economy, which predates the Jewish takeover in 1912, which converted U.S. to finance capitalist and now money controlled democracy (no longer a political controlled republic).

    The U.S (and also Western) brain is parasitized, and the parasite itself believes its own falsehoods.

    China played the game well, and continues to play well – meanwhile the overlord class is over-reacting and freaking out. Everything the overlord Jewish finance class thinks it knows is being exposed as a false-hood and false economy.

    To be fair, the number of non-Chinese cases detected have been very low and thus it is not possible yet to determine the lethality of the virus on different races, although there is no doubt such a discrepancy will exist as Anthrax was more effective against non-Caucasians. Also the virus is killing the old and weak, so if it really spreads in the West, then we should start seeing lots of dead old white folk, the demographic that usually die from flu every winter anyways.

    The media usually shy away from mentioning race differences in mental capacity. I think almost everyone is aware of physical difference, the most obvious being skin colour.

    The two main functions of money are:

    1. Store of wealth
    2. Means of exchange.

    China and Russia (and others) have the first function in mind. As the present dollar-centred monetary system dies , they are relying on gold to transfer value to the new paradigm. Gold will never be ameans of exchange again as it was under the Gold Standard.

    If China had continued to accumulate US debt, as it did from 2001 to 2013, then it would not be coming under such sustained attack. As it is, China has abandoned support for the present dollar-centric system. On a net basis it now refuses to save the IOUs of the United States.

    2013 – China stops accumulating US treasuries, announces Belt and Road
    2014 – China surpasses US in size of exonomy (purchasing power parity)

    Negligible domestic savings and declining foreign demand mean that the Fed is now monetizing US debt. We are in the endgame. This attack on China, if that is what it is, is a sign of that and a sign of desperation. Indeed, it could serve to accelerate events.

    the Bo Xilai incident a few years back showed that there are indeed different factions jostling for power at the top of the party and military hierarchies. Not really. In 1985 Bo Xilai, son of a Revolutionary Immortal and Xi Jinping’s schoolmate, ignored his father’s pleas to stay out of politics, “You know nothing of the sufferings of ordinary people and just want to capitalize on my name.” Xilai cultivated a charismatic image, was named one of Time’s Most Influential People, rose rapidly to provincial governor and publicly campaigned for a cabinet position. But, as conservative scholar Cheng Li[1] said at the time, “Nobody really trusts him. A lot of people are scared of him, including several princelings who are supposed to be his power base.” Michael Wines[2] wrote that, though he possessed prodigious charisma and deep intelligence, “He possessed a studied indifference to the wrecked lives that littered his path to power…Mr. Bo’s ruthlessness stood out.” With the help of Justice Minister Zhou Yongkang, Bo had even wiretapped President Hu.

    Despite internal resistance, Vice Premier Wu Yi, the nation’s highest woman official, demanded an open investigation and a 2012 trial revealed that Bo owned expensive properties around the world and that his wife had murdered a British agent. They were jailed for life and joined a long line of disgraced elites like the grandson of China’s Head of State and founder of the Red Army, Zhu De, who was executed for rape, and Yan Jianhong, wife of Guizhou’s powerful Party Secretary, who was executed for corruption.

    Bo, a high-functioning sociopath, was a Western darling but was never a candidate for national leadership.

    China remains a totalitarian country with strict control of any anti-government statement, and universal electronic surveillance and censorship of which all Chinese are keenly aware. China is far less totalitarian than the US. Where else but in an totalitarian country does the leader have the sole power to:
    * Declare war. Frequently.
    * Issue 300,000 national security letters (administrative subpoenas with gag orders that enjoin recipients from ever divulging they’ve been served);
    * Control information at all times under his National Security and Emergency Preparedness Communications Functions.
    * Torture, kidnap and kill anyone, anywhere, at will.
    * Secretly ban 50,000 citizens from flying–and refusing to explain why.
    * Imprison 2,000,000 citizens without trial.
    * Execute 1,000 citizens each year prior to arrest.
    * Kill 1,000 foreign civilians every day since 1951
    * Massacre its own men, women and children for their beliefs
    * Assassinate its own citizens abroad, for their beliefs.
    * What leader saw his country’s military dropping 26,171 bombs in one year?

    Many Chinese over, say 40 will equate economic improvements with the conclusion that their government “works for everyone’s benefit.” In a multivariate regression analysis when other factors such as age, education, gender, income, religiosity, and geographic location are taken into consideration, government responsiveness played the single most significant role in promoting regime support in China. Existing studies typically attribute the high level of government support to three things: economic growth, media control, and cultural values. According to these studies, the Chinese are happy with their government because (1) their economic conditions have improved during China’s period of rapid growth; (2) they are brainwashed by the government-controlled media, which always presents a rosy picture of the country; and (3) the Confucian cultural values make people respect political hierarchy and avoid challenging authority.

    Yet when these three factors are compared with government responsiveness in the same regression model, the latter continues to show the strongest impact in promoting regime support. https://americanaffairsjournal.org/2018/02/surprise-authoritarian-resilience-china/

    ordinary Chinese are well aware of the breathtaking corruption perpetrated by the party elite at all levels. How do ordinary Chinese become aware of this breathtaking corruption? Where do they find the evidence? Next year, every Chinese will own a home and have a job, plenty of food, education, safe streets, health insurance, a pensions, and old age care.

    By then, 300,000,000 urban Chinese will have more net worth and disposable income than the average American, their mothers and infants will be less likely to die in childbirth, their children will graduate from high school three years ahead of American kids and live longer, healthier lives and there will be more drug addicts, suicides and executions, more homeless, poor, hungry and imprisoned people in America than in China.

    Does that look like a country run by breathtakingly corrupt people?

    Lieber worked on nanomaterials and nanoelectronics that detect viruses and pathogens released during biological weapons attacks.

    https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2004/10/sensor-detects-identifies-single-viruses/

    Two of the world’s biggest threats may someday be reduced by wires thousands of times thinner than a hair but capable of detecting a single virus. The specter of worldwide viral epidemics is always with us, so detecting them quickly offers the possibility of saving thousands of lives. The pathogens also can be stealthy biological weapons, making their positive detection a vital national defense requirement.

    “We want to find a single virus before it finds you,” says Charles Lieber, Hyman Professor of Chemistry at Harvard University. Tests recently completed in his laboratory show that these unimaginably thin nanowires can sense and distinguish between viruses that cause flu, measles, and eye infections. Lieber believes future versions will be able to spot HIV, Ebola, SARS, West Nile, hepatitis, bird flu, and other dangerous viruses.

  82. I watched a video by a guy who has worked in China 10 years. He is a Korean waiting it out in Thailand.
    Important facts:
    1. The head of Wuhan Province tried to contain this virus without talking to Beijing.
    2.Only after it became glaringly obvious they were swamped did he phone.
    3. Beijing dithered before issuing instructions.

    Result.
    Wuhan was not quarantined in a timely manner. Locals knew there was an epidemic of virulent flu that produced deadly pneumonia. People with money jumped on planes and flew anywhere but Wuhan. 10, 000 here, 10, 000 there. Not only out of China but within China. Over 2 million left Wuhan in 7 days before they shut the city down. Based on this Shanghai could be overwhelmed in 2-3 weeks.
    Also, the numbers are a lie. On January 27th a Chinese nurse stated that 90,000 were infected. She kept a mask and Hazmat suit on to prevent the regime from identifying her. Western virologists have independently stated numbers between 75-100k infected in the last 2 days.
    People were turned away in Wuhan after the 20,000 bed hospital system was overwhelmed. They went home. Due to this, the fatality rate will be higher as will the transfer rate. The gov’t began cremating 24.7 to hide the death count and prevent societal breakdown. The real death count from Wuhan could be 2-3,000 and the overall total death rate in Chinas (so far) could be 4,000 or more. We don’t know because the gov’t of China is lying through their teeth. Estimates of 100,000 infected and 5,000 dead at this point in time is most likely closer to the real number but may still be conservative.
    I have watched this very closely because I have seen nothing but lies, disinfo and apathy from western propaganda sources.
    Scary: the virii shows up in spit at 10^8 /ml in a recovered patient in Germany. This has to be studied further but it is possible that people are still contagious post recovery. Not likely but possible. The mean of 5.2 days but up to 12 as asymptomatic has let this flu spread like fire. The Ro factor is anywhere from 2-4.
    There are a lot of undefineds and unknowns. This doesn’t change the fact that government and media have, largely, failed to admit the depth of this; it is now a pandemic. Don’t kid yourself. This is not just another flu.
    No one in China has antibodies for this. The death toll over there is going to be at least 10,000, possibly 50,000. I say this based on the number truly infected, virulence, how few cycles have passed, the Chinese are overwhelmed and will be until May,etc. This is an educated guess based on what I’ve gathered so far.
    The Chinese have had to pump 200B $ into their economy. It will affect world supply chains. If/when the U.S. economy is affected it will be a perfect hat to hang Trump’s hat on, ie. ‘not to blame’.

    Stop using the word ‘money’. There is ‘currency’ and there is ‘wealth’.

    Currency (means of exchange) cannot be a store of wealth over long periods because debt is denominated in currency – and debtors always want easy money. See present low and negative interest rates. Savers on the other hand want hard money which holds value. There is thus a conflict of interest between savers and debtors, meaning that it is unwise to save in the means of exchange.

    Since the Genoa conference of 1922, but especially after Bretton Woods in 1944, the Dollar was as good as Gold – 35 Dollars was a certificate for an ounce of gold. Following the default of the United States on its Gold obligations to its international creditors in 1971, the US has consistently had large budget deficits and large trade deficits, which are essentially two sides of the same coin. It was able to do this without suffering the collapse of the dollar because the trading nations of the world continued to hold dollars (in the form of treasuries) as a store of wealth. They were prepared to do this because otherwise international trade would have collapsed without a means of payment. That is, their holding of dollars as reserves in the form of treasuries prevented the dollar from adjusting downwards, as it should have done in response to the trade deficit. This is the real reason that the US has lost manufacturing jobs.

    In the 80s amd the 90s it was primarily Europe and Japan which supported the Dollar in this way. Following the introduction of the Euro, the Eurozone stopped accumulating treasuries on a net Basis. The slack was taken up by China after 2001 – until 2013. Now, with insufficient domestic savings and foreigners increasingly unwilling to lend to the US government, the US faces hyperinflation in the not too distant future.

    At best, given dual-use function research, all you can say is that Lieber was assisting China with Viruses. You have no basis to say Lieber was only teaching them how to ‘detect’ viruses.

    Lieber will be revealing what he knew and knows. It seems very unlikely that his involvement fits with your prescription.

    China created the first publicly claimed engineered human/animal admixture corona virus sample years and years ago, well before the Wuhan facility was established.

    https://greatgameindia.com/coronavirus-chinas-secret-plan-to-weaponize-viruses/

    The Indians understand China.

    https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/sino-fascism-john-derbyshire/

    General Chi Haotian was talking about wiping clean western Lebensraum for China back in 2003.

    “—Comrade Mao Zedong taught us that we must have a resolute and correct political orientation. What is our key, correct orientation? It is to solve the issue of America.”

    —”Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization.”

    —”In the long run, the relationship of China and the United States is one of a life-and-death struggle.”

    —”We must put up with America; we must conceal our ultimate goals, hide our capabilities and await the opportunity.”

    —”In the past years we have seized the opportunity to master weapons of this kind [i.e. biological]. We are capable of achieving our purpose of ‘cleaning up’ America all of a sudden. When Comrade Xiaoping was still with us, the Party Central Committee had the perspicacity to make the right decision not to develop aircraft carrier groups and focus instead on developing lethal weapons that can eliminate mass populations of the enemy country.”

    —”This yellow land [i.e. China] has reached the limit of its capacity.”

    —”Here some people may want to ask me: what about the several millions of our compatriots in the United States? They may ask: aren’t we against Chinese killing other Chinese? These comrades are too pedantic; they are not pragmatic enough. If we had insisted on the principle that the Chinese should not kill other Chinese, would we have liberated China?”

    There is a very clear set of datapoints showing China’s involvement in the appropriation of this virus, starting in Saudi-Arabia, then Canada with Chinese nationals engaged in theft and espionage, and obtaining human to human transmission, alongside ancillary research with Corona-Viruses going back a decade that explain the form of the present virus.

    Then you have a BSL-4 facility that looked like it had all the safety and salinity of your average Sears Mall building in New York.

    “One Mountain does not allow two Tigers to live together”

    India is now seeking to investigate Wuhan.

    The Russians took General Chi’s speech seriously.

    It would be a real shame if Chinese incompetence or Chinese cadres working with western criminal Deep State elements caused this. Is China a monolith?

    Xi has killed hundreds of thousands of Tigers and Flies – so the claims about typical Commie universal cohesion are as tiresome and stupid as always.

    At the very least, Chinese national penetration in western institutions is going to have to be revised. How hilarious is it to spin treason and sedition and crimes against humanity as ‘helping China to detect their own viruses’.

    Can the Sino-philes please answer, if this was all a nefarious plot by ‘le Evile Amerikan’, why were those facilities permitted on Chinese soil , in the first place?

    Isolation and characterization of a bat SARS-like coronavirus that uses the ACE2 receptor

    Most importantly, we report the first recorded isolation of a live SL-CoV (bat SL-CoV-WIV1) from bat faecal samples in Vero E6 cells, which has typical coronavirus morphology, 99.9% sequence identity to Rs3367 and uses ACE2 from humans, civets and Chinese horseshoe bats for cell entry.

    That paper is from a 2013 Issue of Nature magazine. Chinese authors, in China.

    Stop lying and acting as though the ACE-2 factor is evidence of Asian targeting. That’s what the Chinese used way back in 2013 to create their first Corona Virus sample.

    Everyone around the world knows this. It was a controversial event. The same way everyone knows about what China has been doing with CRISPR in humans.

    Chinese researchers, in China, were the first to publicly declare they had created a Corona Virus sample using human/animal chimera hybrid in Nature Magazine way back in 2013-2014.

    Unless the authors of that paper were all working for the CIA or the evil western space aliens, the available evidence does not allow the inference you are making, ClickKid.

    A conflict between Asians and non-Asians serves only the eternal mediators. People gesturing darkly at the ACE-2 issue should be less cretinous and contemptible towards the evidence.

    Mr. Bacon,
    I agree. I want more evidence, though it is possible that may not see the light of day, before I condemn the DeepState-MIC but I had them as the lead suspect.
    Particularly suspicious was the portrayal of this disease coming from bat’s. This was, imho, used to elicit the disgust response in the West. Then the emphasis on the Wuhan level 4 facility. So much lying and manipulation, so little time.
    The kicker was Pomparse pointing to China as the big enemy.
    I don’t buy it. China doesn’t have imperial ambitions. America has and continues to have them. China can barely run their own country. They do, however, desperately want to do business wherever they can so they don’t overdegrade their environment. Plus, they want Iranian oil and gas. They need it to keep their economy humming and not overly depend on other suppliers (Russian and KSA). Worst of all, China has that overabundance of unmarried surplus males that they need to keep working and busy.
    I think the regime knows going to war could collapse the government. They seem risk averse and bureaucratic. Doesn’t spell warhawk to me.

    1. Is it a Chimeric binary virus ?

    You can always exit money and own real assets. This is what the “owner” class does, and then they push their real assets in price, or use tricks to push their “finance paper” also called assets as part of the hypnotism.

    Those that hold or own capital, always escape money to then store real productive assets.

    It is only labor, which cannot acquire enough capital, to then escape… this is when money’s “store of wealth” function is important.

    Also, money today is bank credit. Bank credit is a tax on the future. Bank credit comes into being with the “hope” that it can be paid back out of future wealth production.

    Equity money would be a different kind of money, usually issued debt free, and then becomes savings. That type of money would then represent equity, or already created wealth.

    Money’s ultimate purpose is to mediate transactions… it divides down at the moment of transaction to allow the “deal” to go forward.

    Germany was running List’s industrial economic system. List in turn, learned economic lessons from America – especially Henry Carey.

    The Deep State Globo-Homo’s actually off-shored the jobs to China, in order to take wage arbitrage. These same owners are realizing that China did not bow and become their workshop, to then make their capital “grow.” In other words, the Western (((owners))) are realizing the China is playing a sophisticated game of rope-a-dope.

    The trigger for globo-homo types, also called Davos man, was when China’s 2025 plan became known.

    Also, China did not, and has not released control over their state banks, despite the demands of “Trumps trade deal.”

    The federal arrest/charge provides a de facto gag order silencing Lieber. So now we know his work in the nanotechnology field developing technology to detect certain strains of viruses and their origin, along with his scientific cooperation with China, was the reason he was charged with essentially a reporting technicality.

    Lieber was charged was 18 U.S. Code Section 1001, the same charge Martha Stewart, Gen. Michael Flynn, and Roger Stone were charged with. A process crime.

    Lieber must still be in a state of shock over his FBI arrest for essentially a technicality. Especially when I am certain— based on my background and experience in national security investigations— that Lieber received guidance from the personnel security office as to what needed to be listed. And my guess is that he was probably more fastidious that 99% of all people in both listing what was required and responding fully to all inquires made to him.

    The Secret Speech of General Chi Haotian

    “Of the research done on genetic weapons throughout the world, Israel is the most advanced. Their genetic weapons are designed to target Arabs and protect the Israelis. But even they have not reached the stage of actual deployment. We have cooperated with Israel on some research. Perhaps we can introduce some of the technologies used to protect Israelis and remold these technologies to protect the yellow people. But their technologies are not mature yet, and it is difficult for us to surpass them in a few years. If it has to be five or ten years before some breakthrough can be achieved in genetic weapons, we cannot afford to wait any longer.”

  97. Nor is Corona like the previous epidemics. You don’t smash China, shut down 60 million people in lockdown, stop the economy – and thus the West’s economy in the long run – “only” to sell vaccines. This is much greater, regardless of the degree of real danger of the virus:

    Bottom line is: Corona is the world’s biggest problem-response solution so far: 1. virus = 2. fear = 3. population control.

    Corona is the new 9/11 – or at least the first phase of it …..

    “Only three months ago, the John Hopkins, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the World Economic Forum (a hive of self-proclaimed globalists) organized a” pandemic simulation “called” Event 201 “OFFICIAL CHANNEL FOR THE CORONA EXERCISE LAST YEAR : https://youtu.be/AoLw-Q8X174) that focused specifically on Coronavirus, not Ebola or swine flu or even bird flu – but CORONAVIRUS. The simulation was about the spread of Coronavirus in South America, where animals were blamed for humans being infected ( of pigs) The conclusion of this exercise was that the national governments were nowhere prepared to score 40 out of 100 on their contingency scale, the simulation predicted over 65 million deaths worldwide.

    Event 201 played out almost exactly as in China today. Some very sincere or maybe rather stupid people have argued that this type of thing is “normal” and claim that we are “lucky” that the elites have run simulations beforehand to “save us” from a coronavirus outbreak. I argue that event 201 was not a simaltion, but a war exercise to study the possible outcomes of an event that globalists already knew was coming. Disregard the fact that, before almost every major crisis and terrorist attack in the last few decades, authorities ran simulations of how the exact event took place just before it happened; does anyone really think Event 201 is pure coincidence? ”

    UPDATE: The 9 scientists have withdrawn their paper (“Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag”), but their analysis is still valid according to many researchers and Ph.D’s: it is NOT natural, that HIV-1, GP120 is inserted (neutralizes T cell production). This part of the Coronavirus IS intentionally inserted – bio weapons or not:

It took time to de-program itself from the bias of normalcy bias and cognitive dissonance, and only after thorough analysis of many aspects. There is a difference between fear and facts. Many people confuse the facts with their own fear-reaction and throw the baby out with the bathing water … they switch verbs and subjects because of their own cognitive dissonance / fear __- what have you, and think the description is ‘hysterical’ because they don’t can relate to what is described.

    Now I do not know how dangerous it is – China suppresses information. If you buy the premise, again – it’s useless to compare it with previous fraud epidemics and fear campaigns, because the rate of infection is greater (R0) than ordinary flu, and we do not know the true R0 yet, but China’s behavior suggests total panic.

    China was brought back into the international trading system as part of a response to peak cheap oil.

    This is the same reason that we have had since the late 1960s a massive expansion of credit – world debt today of $255 trillion on 2% GDP – and the end of the gold standard.

    Between 1920 and 1970, the average price of a barrel of oil in 2016 USD was $24. Nowadays it fluctuates between two and three times as much. In 2008 it got to $140.

    China was brought on line for the same reasons that credit was massively expanded as wages were depressed – in order to support demand that was being killed by the rising costs of oil extraction. As the availability of cheap conventional decreased and more expensive or lower quality oils had to be used – deep sea drilling and fracking oils for example – the share of oil profits that remained for governments and consumers fell and fell.

    It was hoped that cheap Chinese goods/manufacturing, Chinese demand, and massive expansion of debt would hold off the any fatal damage that the end of cheap oil would do to the world economy. And it has worked. Of course wages have fallen since the 1970s. The USA and European family and communities are deep in debt and falling apart, unable to maintain their parents’ lifestyle. But the entire thing has not crashed. So the scheme has worked well to this point.

    Stop using the word ‘money’. There is ‘currency’ and there is ‘wealth’.

    You need to stop confusing people with your confusion.

    Money is a generic term today, and there are different kinds of money. When people think of money they think of purchasing power.

    Money is general demand, pay to the bearer. It is also good for settling debts, which is a legal construct.

    Currency is an older term in history, and it comes from “make current” or to flow, to circulate.

    Wealth is another term. You can be wealthy in non-monetary terms.

    and debtors always want easy money.

    Think carefully on this:

    1) Is creditor over debtor?
    2) Is lender over borrower?

    The power relation is not debtor over creditor, and never has been. OK, maybe the U.S. as a debtor nation having power over others is the first example in history, but not on an individual level.

    You must be a confused Austrian Lolbertarian?

    The dollar was not good as gold post Bretton Woods. That is more hypnosis. The Bretton Woods conference established dollar as reserve because the U.S. had most of the worlds gold at the time, and people still thought that gold was money. This was an overhang of fractional reserve banking, where gold was put into reserve status of banks.

    Further, post Bretton, gold trading standard was put into place, which marked EXTERNAL TRADE in gold. I cannot think of any examples post Bretton woods, where an economy used gold internally.

    They were prepared to do this because otherwise international trade would have collapsed without a means of payment.

    And how did Germany consumate trade without dollars or gold? They used Schachts trading banks.

    I could go on, but you get the idea. You have been had – and have learned a perverted type of economics that has no bearing on reality. I detect lolbertarianism – which is a Jewish head fake, and hypnotizes people with bad concepts.

    The cost of fuel and shipping is factored into production and transportation costs. Finished goods then acquire a price and are sold into Western Markets.

    When you can buy a Chinese made wood table in North Carolina, for cheaper than that produced on U.S. local economy, then you know something is afoot.

    That’s why it’s important to state the facts.

    China isolated and engineered an ACE-2 pathway CoronaVirus with animal/human parts in 2013.

    China had a sample of a Corona-Virus that they created, and publicly advertised as evidence of their research prowess, in 2013.

    So it is quite possible that in the course of trying to create a vaccination for the SARS virus or something else a sample was released into the wild.

    It is also possible that Deep State agents, Neo-Cons and Zionists are trying to repeat on an epic scale the Syrian false flag. Who benefits from China and the United States mauling each other and the world economy?

    A One World Government that could rule over whatever remains after the conflict is over.

    George Soro’s fingerprints is all over this event. It is particularly likely given the seismic financial/monetary changes that have been in development and started to be implemented worldwide. They are world altering.

    Soros hates Trump. He hates China. He hates all nationalism. The people who he represents as a public face would like nothing more then to see a conflict between their two primary targets for subversion and destruction. If the public debtors can’t recall their debt evidently they’ll seek to destroy the debtees.

    Accusations about the United States have to take into account that basic reality.

    If China had engineered hybrid samples of CoronaVirus as far back as 2014, how many more samples and iterative samples could they have engineered by 2019? Who might have been able to get a hold of them? Simply saying that it was the ‘Americans’ without differentiating who and what ‘Americans’ are or aren’t, and not accounting for huge masses of evidence of Chinese development is incorrect.

    There has been all manner of subversion happening in both China and the United States that Xi and Trump have taken measures to eliminate or mitigate. That is also a relevant factor.

    In the United States there has already been a 12% increase in Influenza Like Illness, with many sudden deaths of our own young white people.

    New York has been hit. California has been hit. The South has been hit. Texas has been hit. There are already many many deaths, they just haven’t been attributed to the Corona-Virus.

    This is the worst ‘flu’ season in United States’ history. After the previous year which also the worst in 40 years, with strangely virulent strains killing 80,000 Americans.

    Remember, the Chinese C-Virus event actually started in December, arguably the end of November.

    And now we’ve had the SuperBowl.

    This is January 2020.

    A number of these cases will be unacknowledged C-Virus.

    The United States just had it’s first increase in life expectancy and real wages under Trump in decades. China as everyone here has observed has been going from strength to strength.

    Who gains by seeing China and the United States fight? Neither of those two parties.

    66% of the White male population will have the same ACE-2 profile as Asians. By March there are going to be enough dead white people, who are already an endangered species, to satisfy even the most hateful white hating Jew or Person of Colour.

    That answer came to mind and it explains partly why China was chosen to become the factory of the world – but no more than that, a factory. Don’t know much how the capitalist West hoped or planned to control China’s development and modernization in all sectors, including the direction of the political structure. Godfree Roberts might throw some light into that.

    Instead, it became a science powerhouse as well as the factory and, as we know, to country or even a regional power was allowed to emerge as a threat to the US hegemony, as commanded by the Project for a New American Century.

    Something didn’t quite work out as planned.

    It’s a good article. It just runs the old tired tropes of cohesive nation-states and misses out vast amounts of data that complicate the picture.

    One could easily answer your numerous question one by one. But I’ll attempt a single one to answer them all: Whitney Webb, does not know everything. She made a valiant and through piece of hard work to help us understand what is going on behind the almost impervious curtain erected by the US government agencies and the accomplice MSM whose duty it is to keep the people informed, not lied to.

    Nevertheless a reasonable reader can see that she has explained details how the DARPA, CIA, Pentagon, USAID, etc. work. They set up a complex web of corporate entities to fund universities and research labs so that the recipients of funding don’t have a clue where the money comes from. They also spread widely the research projects so that each researcher contributes only a little segment of the whole project and has no clue about the whole picture. This is basic stuff.

    Now, that you know so much, why don’t you emulate WW and do a little bit to fill in the picture she painstakingly started.

    Lot of good points in this article.

    Reading some of the comments it seems those entertaining a conspiracy overlook China as a possible participant. Perhaps fooled by the fake wrestling we have seen that relating to the trade war with a deal coincidentally being reached right before the Wuhan outbreak became a big story. Coincidence? Maybe.

    What could possibly motivate a government into attacking its own people? Perhaps to implement forced vaccinations that may help their aging overpopulation problem? Perhaps to distract a population growing uneasy with an economic down turn, growing personal debt, increasing inequality, etc? Maybe so as to blame the US to spark nationalistic support for the party elite? Perhaps Chinas refusal to accept US aid is to perpetuate the myth of a conspiracy that is US directed against China?

    As for the West , the benefits are obvious. Big Pharma sees an opportunity (Gilead Science-Rumsfelds Tamiflu company is trialing a new antiviral in Beijing). Vaccine developers at Big Pharma/NIH are hard at work, can mandatory vaccinations for travelers be far behind? Event 201 and Netflix “Pandemic “ documentary (released in January), both with neomalthusian Bill Gates connections /sponsorship, show this was something the elites had prepared for.

    That said, for all the hype this is still just a bad cold virus going around. The real damage will be from government actions, quarantines, travel bans, and forced vaccinations of a vaccine that wont be adequately tested for safety (none of them are).

    Indian military believes that the U.S. Center for Disease Control in Atlanta was involved in the 1994 plague in the Indian city of Surat which killed 52 people and close to a quarter of the city’s citizens fled the area for fear of being quarantined. Even the origin of 1994 plague is mired in controversy to this day.”

    http://www.greatgameindia.com

    R. Prasannan, the New Delhi Bureau Chief of The Week magazine, in his piece questioning whether Coronavirus was created in a lab wrote,

    During the 1994 plague outbreak in Surat and Beed, it was found that the germs had an extra protein ring which could only have been inserted artificially. Indian scientists had raised concerns about a US biowar experiment having gone awry. THE WEEK had carried reports giving details of germ war reseach being carried on in labs under the Centre for Disease Control in Atlanta and about a newly developed germ detector being tested. The US embassy had denied the allegations. There were also reports that the Surat germ could have been developed in a lab in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

    So, do you think (((they))) created Bitcoin ?

    No.

    Part of what gives money currency is the use factor. If you have the only train company in town, and you issue tickets for your train, then your tickets have value by virtue of the train tracks, right of ways, the train station, and most importantly how far the train goes.

    What gives the dollar much of its currency (ability to flow and desirability) is that the money masters converted it to FRN’s, spread the reserve system world-wide through link ups, and then usurped governments.

    The tentacles and nodes of the world wide reserve system are being bypassed by Bitcoin.

    This bypassing and high security of Bitcoin is actually a threat to (((them))).

    That said, bitcoin is actually not money – money is law. Bitcoin is based on the false concept of gold… that money erupts out of the ground through mining.

    Bitcoin gets its “currency” by virtue of block-chain, and the rail-links that connect it worldwide. People who are monetarily illiterate confuse the system (the rail lines) with the trains (the money).

    This is true for a debt based money system, where the money is hypothecated against debt instruments. What comes from nothing, returns to nothing.

    The gold-bugs do have something worth saying, only since they are monetarily illiterate, they don’t have the words.

    When gold erupts out of the ground, and then the king stamps the gold and turns it into money, it popped into being outside of a debt instrument. It is floating money. It came into being as seignior-age on the money supply.

    The money supply actually needs debt free “floating money” in the supply. Floating money is good for savings as it is not under time pressure to return to a debt ledger. Further it pays off debts in the same way as does banker debt created money. (The usurers always react violently if their credit is paid off with sovereign floating money.)

    So, the austrian bugs confuse gold with the money action.

    China forgives debt’s routinely. The former Yuan credit loses its debt association, and hence no longer is required to return to ledger for destruction. This means that some portion of the Yuan supply is floating money, and this money can be thought of as baseband.

    Baseband is like coal or nuclear power, it is at some level relative to the average transaction (GDP) of an economy.

    The real economy of the west does not have its private debts released, nor does it have much in the way of debt free money that channeled into labor’s savings. This is because the (((bad guys))) have usurped the money power for themselves, to then take perpetual rents – and fuel the activities of the tribe.

    By the way, China’s economy is permanently efficient because of their State Banks and release of debts. This means that wall street can take wage arbitrage on China forever, while China maneuvers to steal our patrimony.

    When the SYSTEM changed, so did the money, hence the devaluation. When the confederacy collapsed, so did their money. Money is law, and the law changed – or disappeared.

    Yeltsin had groups of people in his midst (Atlantacists) who wanted to link up to the west. Further, they wanted to profit through monetizing the Russian commons into dollars/euros. This monetization was through the attachment of dollar denominated debt instruments onto debt free Russian lands.

    Yeltsin was low IQ and possibly a dupe. There were other better ways to move away from communism. The way it was done was a disaster, as the Russian commons were privatized into the hands of Oligarchs… most of whom were the “international jew,” running their time worn scams.

    If all you have is oil, then you want others dependent on your oil. So, it is then easy to get yourself into a situation where you are dependent on food and goods from other countries.

    China has little oil, so instead they should be building nuclear power plants (the French Strategy) and building heavily insulated and/or solar homes with government incentives. This would be a high priority and a strategic maneuver on the same scale as build out of military.

    Sure, money in its role as currency is a means to facilitate trade. The premier currency by far in our modern age has been the USD, which has also been used by non-US countries as a reserve. Since it is used as a reserve (not just as a means of payment) it has allowed the US an artificially high standard of living, at the cost of a gradual loss of manufacturing jobs. It also allows the US givernment to run much higher deficits than would otherwise be the case.

    China is at the forefront of those countries gradually distancing themselves from this arrangement. The accumulation of gold by the Silk Road countries is common knowledge. China’s decision to stop accumulating the debt of the US givernment in 2013 freed up that capital for investment in Belt and Road Projects.

    This is the threat which is undermining the power of the US government and its associated oligarchs. I think we can all agree that when entities – whether governments, individuals or others – recognize threats to their power, they tend to try and do something about them.

    I’m not discounting the possibility that this was an accidental release from some Chinese lab, but it’s a very remote possibility.

    There is plenty of evidence about that the US has experimented on its own citizens, even exposing them during nuclear tests, so why should they be any more considerate with the Chinese? When the US starts behaving better with its own people, maybe then I can start believing that this wasn’t a deliberate bio-attack on PR China.

    Let’s talk just a second here about the pork shortage, which was germ warfare by drones. Now you don’t hear this. You don’t read this in the United States media. But all over China media, it’s police (who) are arresting people and they’re picking up all these custom-made drones, that all these criminal elements have all over the nation. During the height of the Trump trade war, the drones were flying back and forth, spraying lethal viral agents to kill pigs. And this was during the height of the trade war. Each time an agreement was reached, the negotiation team from the U.S. placed more demands. Most of them were totally ridiculous and then they’d walk back from the table and things started pressuring China.

    Now, the idea that drones would spread a virus is intriguing. And I’m going to talk to you as a technology wonk. Think about it for a minute. It’s not just that drones were being used. Who designed and modified the drones? You’re telling me pig farmers all over the nation decided to modify a drone? Who manufactured and modified them? So, these are professionally modified drones. Somebody designed them. Somebody got on a CAD system, designed the parts, went to a factory, had the plastic parts professionally injection molded, people. That takes at least 30 weeks to do, OK on a short run. All right. They had to have special electronics installed. Well, you can probably do that in somebody’s basement. But nevertheless, how were the drones in the south of China identical to those in the west of China? Identical to those in the north of China? Identical to those in the east of China? Somebody flooded China and agents with these professionally manufactured viral spraying drones. How can the pig farmers get a hold of the exact viral agent? It’s not just the drones. (Do) the pig farmers know how to create viral agents to kill pigs? Did they say, oh, that pig died? I will go over and extract the viral agent from it and spray it over here. No. How did they do it? How did pig farmers even know how to handle viral agents? Do you? Do you know how to handle a viral vial of viral agent and put it in a spraying system? Do you mix it with water? Do you make it into an aerosol? How do you handle it? It’s a pig farmer! And how did they know how to design, build and construct viral spraying mechanisms. Do you know how to construct the viral spraying mechanism? I’m an aerospace engineer. I know. And even that, I’d have to sit down and look it up. It’s not common knowledge.

    Meanwhile, the United States media is not reporting on the drone use to decimate the pork industry. OK, so this event and suddenly the entire nation goes into lockdown. I have to ask: what’s going on?

    Do you agree that global power is a zerosum game – ie the more power China has the less power the US has?

    Do you agree that the US is technically capable of causing such an outbreak as we currently see?

    Do you agree that this outbreak tends to weaken China economically, and therefore geopolitically – and therefore tends to strengthen the position of the US compared to China?

    Do you agree that elites in the US, China or any other country tend to act amorally to maximize their own power.?

    Read Godrey Roberts post above again, carefully. Then compare his lengthy statements with the concise, narrowly focused points made by Eagle Eye.

    Then ask yourself:

    (1a) Judging by his writings on this page, is Godfrey Roberts literate in Chinese?

    (1b) Would you give much weight to the opinions of an American in Paris who admits he can only read the International Herald Tribune but not Le Figaro, has never followed a conversation between two Frenchmen, and cannot understand TV news?

    (2) Eagle Eye said in effect that the cited 78% figure for Chinese who claim to believe that their government generally works for them cannot be taken at face value, and is based on a different social environment and historical traditions than the Western figures. Does Roberts’ reply actually challenge this narrow and technical point? Or does he effectively concede the point?

    (Having said this, Godrey Roberts makes many interesting and valuable points based on his careful reading of English-language materials. However, not having DIRECT access to and a feeling for original materials is vastly limiting in ways an illiterate author cannot always understand..)

    (3) Did Eagle Eye say or imply any value judgments whatever as to the relative merits and moral standing of the Chinese government vs. that of the U.S.?

    Would be nice if true, but it’s kind of early to have completed research, reached an industrially workable idea, and drafted and filed the patent.

    It is damn fast, I’ll grant, but it depends on what they’ve patented, and what sort of patent they applied for.

    If you read the article, no new drug has been researched/developed/tested, and the patentability of their discovery isn’t a slam dunk. Actually, it’s doubtful.

    In any case, they needn’t have “drafted and filed (a formal) patent (application)” to establish a priority date and file an Intent to Apply. That can be done in a day with a bit of effort, and I’d wager that’s what they actually did.

    Specifically, the Wuhan Institute found that a concoction made of Remdesivir and Chloroquine is effective. Chloroquine has been around since the ’40s as a treatment for malaria, and Remdesivir is in Ph. 2/3 testing for its effectiveness against Ebola.

    Gilead Sciences, developer of Remdesivir has stated that it appears to be effective against corona viruses SARS and MERS, both of which are similar to 2019-nCov.

    As Wuhan, indeed all of China is now a giant laboratory where doubtless every lab is on a war footing, the chances of a fortuitous discovery are actually pretty good. Doctors in Bangkok have found concoctions of anti-viral medicines used to combat AIDS to be effective, and have successfully cured several of their cases.

    Tremendous resources being thrown into the battle, with 10,000s of researchers looking to make their name as the one that found the magic bullet. That the group that’s been at it the longest, and with the most skin in the game has apparently found one shouldn’t be all that surprising. That others will find other magic bullets in due course won’t surprise either.

    Here are the four insertions:

    TNGTKR
    HKNNKS
    RSYLTPGDSSSG
    QTNSPRRA

    These four insertions are protein sequences, that are encoded by a DNA sequence (which you may know uses molecular “letters” of A, G, C, and T to encode for proteins, which uses 20 molecular amino acid “letters”).

    You, dear reader, do not have to take anybody’s word for it that these letters are a coincidence – you can do the bioinformatics yourself!

    1. If you would go to: https://blast.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Blast.cgi [nih.gov]
    2. Click on “Protein Blast”.
    3. Under where it says “Enter accession number”, you can paste any one of the four sequences above. take a look at the second (very short) sequence, “HKNNKS” you can see hundreds of perfectly identical matches, e.g.

    Description | Max Score | Total Score | Query Cover | E value | Per. Ident | Accession
    conserved Plasmodium protein, unknown function [Plasmodium malariae] | 22.3 | 66.8 | 100% | 7873 | 100.00% | SBT79988.1
    hypothetical protein TTHERM_01043320 [Tetrahymena thermophila SB210]| 22.3 | 22.3 | 100% | 7874| 100.00% | XP_001030678.2
    uncharacterized protein KIAA1109 isoform X1 [Sipha flava]| 22.3 | 22.3 | 100% | 7876 | 100.00% | XP_025405720.1

    “How likely was this result to have occurred by chance?”. It is called the E-value, or Expect Value – the number of times we’d expect to see this result purely by chance. As you can see here, many of the E-values listed on this page are greater than 7829 – so we’d have expected to see 7829 instances of matches like these completely by chance! This is not evidence for gene transfer or gene similarity – it’s simply a coincidence.

    “You guys,” David said, “are here to learn how to rule the world.”

    King David,” David Coe went on, “liked to do really, really bad things.” He chuckled. “Here’s this guy who slept with another man’s wife — Bathsheba, right? — and then basically murdered her husband. And this guy is one of our heroes.” David shook his head. “I mean, Jiminy Christmas, God likes this guy!

    You guys know about Genghis Khan?” he asked.

    “Genghis was a man with a vision. He conquered” — David stood on the couch under the map, tracing, with his hand, half the northern hemisphere — “nearly everything. He devastated nearly everything. His enemies? He beheaded them.

    Genghis Khan’s genius”, David went on, “lay in his understanding that there could be only one king. When Genghis entered a defeated city, he would call in the local headman. Conversion to the Khan’s cause was not an option, as Genghis was uninterested in halfhearted deputies. Instead, said David, Genghis would have the man stuffed into a crate, and over the crate’s surface would be spread a tablecloth, on which a wonderful meal would be arrayed.

    “And then, while the man suffocated, Genghis ate, and he didn’t even hear the man’s screams.”

    David stood on the couch, a finger in the air. “Do you know what that means?”

    To their credit, my brothers did not. Perhaps on account of my earlier insight, David turned to me. “I think so,” I said. “Out with the old, in with the new.”

    Yes, he nodded. “Christ’s parable of the wineskins. You can’t pour new into old.” One day, he continued, some monks from Europe show up in Genghis Khan’s court.

    Genghis welcomes them in the name of God. Says that in truth, they worship the same great Lord. Then why, the monks ask, must he conquer the world? “I don’t ask,”

    says Genghis. “I submit.”

    David returned to his chair. “We elect our leaders,” he said. “Jesus elects his.”

    He reached over and squeezed the arm of Pavel. “Isn’t that great?” David said.

    “That’s the way everything in life happens. If you’re a person known to be around Jesus, you can go and do anything. And that’s who you guys are. When you leave here, you’re not only going to know the value of Jesus, you’re going to know the people who rule the world. It’s about vision. Get your vision straight, then relate. Talk to the people who rule the world, and help them obey. Obey Him. If I obey Him myself, I help others do the same. You know why? Because I become a warning. We become a warning. We warn everybody that the future king is coming. Not just of this country or that but of the world.”

    Tencent may have accidentally leaked real data on Wuhan virus deaths

    Tencent briefly lists 154,023 infections and 24,589 deaths from Wuhan coronavirus

    https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3871594

    Although some are chalking up the images to users tampering with their browsers, the 154,023 infections on Feb. 1 are remarkably close to the estimate predicted on that date by a scientific modeling study carried out by the University of Hong Kong (HKU) and published on the Lancet website. The study estimates the number of cases is much more given the 2.68 spread rate per case, the doubling of total infections every 6.4 days, and known travel patterns in China and worldwide.

    The study stated that by Jan. 25, there were likely already 75,815 people infected with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in Wuhan. This number for January far exceeds the number of 28,000 given by the government on Feb. 6.

    Nowcasting and forecasting the potential domestic and international spread of the 2019-nCoV outbreak originating in Wuhan, China: a modelling study

    In our baseline scenario, we estimated that the basic reproductive number for 2019-nCoV was 2·68 (95% CrI 2·47–2·86) and that 75 815 individuals (95% CrI 37 304–130 330) have been infected in Wuhan as of Jan 25, 2020. The epidemic doubling time was 6·4 days (95% CrI 5·8–7·1). We estimated that in the baseline scenario, Chongqing, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen had imported 461 (95% CrI 227–805), 113 (57–193), 98 (49–168), 111 (56–191), and 80 (40–139) infections from Wuhan, respectively. If the transmissibility of 2019-nCoV were similar everywhere domestically and over time, we inferred that epidemics are already growing exponentially in multiple major cities of China with a lag time behind the Wuhan outbreak of about 1–2 weeks.

    Another strange phenomenon that netizens have noticed is the mortality rate, as the government death tolls are routinely maintaining an exact percentile for days on end. Many noticed that in the early days of reporting, the government put the death rate at 3.1 percent.

    By late January, the government apparently decided to set the new official mortality rate at 2.1 percent. As can be seen in the image below, the mortality rate was kept at a precise 2.1 percent, regardless of the numbers from Jan. 30 to Feb. 3:

    I don’t accept that argument.

    If you look at the numbers of infected in Hong Kong and Macao, which are basically in China and visited by massive numbers of Chinese tourists and businessmen, then we see a total of 34 people infected. If those higher figures you mentioned were true, then we would be seeing many more cases in HK and Macao.

    Remember these two territories are separately administered and compile their own figures.

    I am pretty sure that the numbers are higher than the official figures, but probably not by too much.

    While I have no problem believing that our intelligence agiencies could have released a bioweapon the question is did they.

    Unlike the US, the Chinese live next to animals, and encounter numerous situations on a daily basis in which they could be infected by them. I also understand from an Ivy League professor/scientist in biochem who is a close friend and has no reason to lie to me, that they looked at whether it could be a bioweapon and determined that it did not display the cell characteristics of a weapon. However, whether or not it is a weapon, this is very serious and we could be on the verge of an epidemic but dont have the data yet.

    Does anthrax display this magic “molecular structure of a bioweapon”? Yet the world was assured by Colin Powell that anthrax is indeed a bioweapon and it was used as a casus belli to go to war against a small country in the Middle East that never launched an anthrax attack on America. So the US went to war on false pretenses while knowing that it was lying. Just be happy that China is not much more powerful to do to you what you have been doing to the world. At least they have more justification in claiming a bioattack than the US did with the deliberate anthrax lie against Iraq.

    I never heard of the family until about 45 mins. ago. I was surfing netflix and came across the mini-series. What I have read about this “family” scares the crap out of me!

    Meet The Family, a wasp xtian satanist cult embedded right at the core of murkkan power, who counts Ghengis Khan, KIng David, Suharto [Clinton’s our kind of guy] as its ‘heroes’.

    ‘In Donald Trump, The Family found their Wolf King, a man who will not lie down like a sheep. Rather, he is a biblical-style bully who represents the epitome of muscular Christianity by devouring the meek. Inserting their long-time soldier Mike Pence into the Trump orbit, The Family ensured this wolf would advance their capitalist Christian agenda.

    While the majority of leaders connected to this clan claim the Republican label, the series points to Bill and Hillary Clinton and other like-minded neoliberals who are connected to Coe and who praise the work of The Family. Included in this mix are progressive thought leaders who build their platforms and publishing deals based on their public veneer as a new kind of Christian, a warrior willing to do battle against those Bible believers who back a Trumpian theology.

    But as The Family demonstrates, these progressive Christians are equally complicit in supporting the structure that placed Trump into power. Anyone who participates in the National Prayer Breakfast, the Fellowships’ congressional prayer breakfasts, or some other Family-friendly gatherings cannot claim they are engaging in “bridge building.” In practice, they’re doing The Family’s business by continuing Vereide’s legacy, utilizing the name of Jesus to advance the interests of industry titans

    In a very strage turn of events, renowned scientist Frank Plummer who received Saudi SARS Coronavirus sample and was working on Coronavirus (HIV) vaccine in the Winnipeg based Canadian lab from where the virus was smuggled by Chinese Biowarfare agents and weaponized as revealed in GreatGameIndia investigation, has died in mysterious conditions. Frank Plummer was the key to the Chinese Biological Espionage case at Winnipeg’s National Microbiology Laboratory.

    According to CBC, Plummer, 67, was in Kenya, where he was a keynote speaker at the annual meeting of the University of Nairobi’s collaborative centre for research and training in HIV/AIDS/STIs.

    Dr. Larry Gelmon, who helped set up that meeting, said Plummer collapsed and was taken to hospital in Nairobi, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

    The cumulative number of confirmed cases are under-reported because it was under-reported in Wuhan in the early days of the outbreak. You don’t need an article in Lancet to see that. All you have to do is to compare the difference in mortality rates in Wuhan and the rest of China: about 4.9% in Wuhan and 0.17% in the rest of China. It seems to me that the most plausible explanation is that very mild and mild cases were massively under-reported in Wuhan in the first few weeks of the outbreak. Exaggerated mortality rate caused by under-reported cases is a common occurrence in epidemics. It’s not unique to this case. Does it matter at this point? Probably not anymore, because Wuhan has been in strict lock-down.

    By late January, the government apparently decided to set the new official mortality rate at 2.1 percent. As can be seen in the image below, the mortality rate was kept at a precise 2.1 percent, regardless of the numbers from Jan. 30 to Feb. 3:

    I’m not saying that the Chinese government is not making up numbers. It’s just that they had to make up several series of numbers on a daily basis. Someone somewhere would probably have already found out if they faked the numbers day in and day out.

    You can read the numbers yourself using google full-page translation:

    LOL. What what you call “the fukus” did to Japan was defeat Japan’s imperial ambitions, which at the time involved occupation of one third of China and the perpetration of numerous war crimes against the Chinese. In fact one of those warmongering American bastards, Joseph Stillwell, led the Chinese army during WWII, which freed China of Japanese occupation.

    By [embargoes and other economic sanctions], including oil-supply chokeholds, America has consistently been at the forefront of provoking and promoting war.

    America is acting as one would expect of the world’s sole super power — a status for which China strives, as reflected in the size of China’s military, which is almost twice as large in manpower as America’s, and China’s massive investments and rapid advances in weapons systems. For the same reason China seeks to evade US control of global trade by creating transEurasian distribution systems.

    And as for oil, the US is only too anxious to supply China, or anyone else. But the price has to be right. else much of the US oil industry will go bust — hence, naturally, the effort to shut in oil from countries hostile to the US. If you think China plays the game of realpolitik any less ruthlessly than the US, you must be very naive.

    China’s death rate is about 7/1000. Wuhan has a population of 11 million. That’s 77,000 deaths a year, or 236 a day. So that’s the normal capacity for cremation in Wuhan, assuming all those who die are cremated in Wuhan. So far the epidemic has caused 545 additional deaths in Wuhan, with increasing deaths in recent days. So yes, the crematories are probably starting to get a little bit busy in recent days.

    According to many Chinese reports, it was done decade ago, through Monsanto GMO seeds & weed killers. It has replaced much of China’s indigenous seeds, make a huge portion of China’s farm barren & dependent on GMO seeds, contaminated a huge swath of lands with China banned GMO seeds.

    After one Chinese celebrity exposed how carcinogenic is Monsanto GMO and the danger of China’s food supply in US hand went viral, China agriculture Minister who fast track all these untested GMOs program was arrested by Prez Xi.

    He was found to hold a high paying position in Monsanto. Chinese distributors of Monsanto also waged aggressive media war to smear that celebrity ringing alarm on GMO danger, and advocate China needs to embrace US GMOs import fully as best food supply security.

    Some of these imported GMO food were later found not even USFDA approved for human & wild animals consumption.

    Since, Prez Xi has advocated organic food while Premier Li is strangely promoting potatoes as Chinese staple food (may be for war created famine?). There are also huge water diversion project going on in Xinjiang, probably preparing for new virgin agriculture lands.

    Those US GMO soys are now only used for oil extraction & protein feed for the poultry only, not for human direct consumption.

    My China friend who once sold these Monsanto GMO seeds told, it was so toxic that the seeds suppose to soak inside stink Monsanto’s weed killers to sprout. The plants will then kill insects feeding on them without pesticide.

    Another food warfare was to bankrupt most of China’s soya farmers & cold pressed oil producers after US deliberately flood China mkt with below cost soya & oil(chemical extract & blended).

    US then buy up all these bankcrupted oil producing factories at dirt cost to gain near monopoly before hiking price by many folds.

    China was caught off guard & pay dearly. Now its trying to nurse back some local farmers with stock up for price stabilization. There are some diversification sourcing to Brazil too. Trumps is pushing US GMOs aggressively.

    Title: Genetic Engineering Biological “Ethnic” Weapons Loom On The Horizon
    Date: January 21, 1999
    Source: Reuters
    http://www.organicconsumers.org/ge/ethnicweapon.cfm

    Abstract: Biological and genetic weapons designed to kill specific ethnic or racial groups are no longer the stuff of science
    fiction, British researchers said Thursday. A designer plague that would only kill Serbs or a toxin engineered to affect Israelis or Kurds does not exist yet but advances in biotechnology and the mapping of all human genes could be misused to develop lethal
    weapons within five to 10 years. Dr Vivienne Nathanson, the head of health policy research at the British Medical Association (BMA), said genetic information is already being used to enhance biological weapons.

    It would be a tragedy if in 10 years time the world faces the reality of genetically engineered and possibly genetically targeted weapons,” she told a news conference to launch a new book entitled “Biotechnology Weapons and Humanity.” “It is not technology and information that is available today, but it is becoming increasingly available. We do have a window of opportunity
    before weapons of that type are manufactured to make sure we have effective measures of prevention.”

    The tragedies have long started since 2003 SARS. Nations that have capability to retaliate like Russia & China, will one day counterstrike.

    Zero Hedge reports:

    China’s Foreign Ministry said this past week that as of noon on Thursday, 19 foreign nationals in the country had been confirmed to be infected with the Coronavirus,

    which, out of a population of 50,000 foreign nationals in China, means an infection rate of 0.00038%. Applied to the population of Chinese nationals, yields a total of half a million Chinese nationals already infected.

    Even if the population of foreign nationals in China is ten times that reported, an equivalent infection rate among Chinese nationals would be over 50,000, which is almost twice the rate China is currently reporting.

    However, if the number of foreign nationals in China totals a million or so, then the infection rate among foreign nationals would match that for Chinese nationals as reported by the Government of China.

    To put things in perspective:

    The burden of influenza disease in the United States can vary widely and is determined by a number of factors including the characteristics of circulating viruses, the timing of the season, how well the vaccine is working to protect against illness, and how many people got vaccinated. While the impact of flu varies, it places a substantial burden on the health of people in the United States each year.

    CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9 million – 45 million illnesses, between 140,000 – 810,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 – 61,000 deaths annually since 2010.

    https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html

    What measures has US taken to reduce these deaths? At least PR China is doing something, and the measures they’re taking will probably also reduce transmission and deaths from the regular flu as well as those due to this coronavirus.

    Methods

    Study Design and Participants

    This case series was approved by the institutional ethics board of Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University (No. 2020020). All consecutive patients with confirmed NCIP admitted to Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University from January 1 to January 28, 2020, were enrolled.

    As of February 3, 47 patients (34.1%) were discharged and 6 died (overall mortality, 4.3%), but the remaining patients are still hospitalized. Among those discharged alive (n = 47), the median hospital stay was 10 days (IQR, 7.0-14.0).

    So the verdict is still out for the remaining 85 – still hospitalized when the study was ended. It’s a bit scary that almost 30% of the patients come from the medical staff at the hospital!

    This guy should know a thing or two about these things. Vice Dean at Imperial College in London
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=ALQTdCYGISw&feature=emb_logo

    He is estimating 50.000 people infected per day in China and 5 days doubling time. And he points out it’s impossible to calculate the actual death rate. It takes the disease 2-3-4 weeks to kill people. So very low death-rate outside of China is of no comfort.

    “China’s Foreign Ministry said … 19 foreign nationals… had been confirmed to be infected… which, out of a population of 50,000 foreign nationals in China, means an infection rate of 0.00038%. “

    Are you serious? You think there are only 50,000 foreign nationals in China?

    “Even if the population of foreign nationals in China is ten times that reported….”

    No, you are still off by a large amount even with your so-generous “Even if…” estimate. A quick google search will answer your question: there are about 1 million foreign residents in China. And we are not even counting tourists/visitors or people in transit – these people can get infected too. I suspect the number also does not include dual-citizenship people. So there are easily several million foreigners in China at any time.

    “… an equivalent infection rate among Chinese nationals would be over 50,000, which is almost twice the rate China is currently reporting.”

    That’s right. After correcting your garbage-in-garbage-out computation, are you going to argue/accept that China is “under” reporting or accurately reporting the numbers? No?

    p/s: Without a calculator, one glance at “19 out of 50,000” tells me it is not 0.00038%. Not even close. You are making so many silly mistakes, and yet have the audacity to challenge Chinese on numbers. LOL.

    Only a temporary withdrawal then. And in the meantime the original paper is still online, and therefore, in fact, unwithdrawn pending revision.

    So we’ll have to see whether they abandon their original conclusions or, what seems more likely, offer rebuttal of the criticism of their conclusions.

    Then why did the website make the announcement that the paper had been retracted? They could have just told us that the paper were waiting for revision and peer-review?

    I haven’t the slightest knowledge of how many foreign nationals there are in China, but before commenting, I did what you suggest, namely a quick Google search and read that:

    Huang Shiding of the Guangzhou Institute of Social Sciences estimates the number of permanent residents of foreign nationality (six months and above) to be around 50,000, of which some 20,000 are of African origin.

    Then, since it seemed to me that an estimate of 50,000 might be on the low side, I considered the case of half a million and of one million.

    As for your remark:

    You think that the US should be wrestling the flu death toll to the ground by wrestling to the ground anyone with a running nose or a cough and dragging them to a quarantine hospital, while bombarding the shoppers on New York’s Fifth Avenue with carbolic acid spray?

    If China’s measures to control the enCo virus, then I congratulate them. Certainly I hope that they are successful. But there seems room to doubt whether some of the measures currently being taken are the most effective that could be taken.

    So far as the flu is concerned, much better, obviously, to encourage everyone to have a flu shot, which is what most Western governments do. But in any case a yearly US death toll of 12,000 to 61,000 from influenza seems rather slight relative to the total US death toll of 2.8 million each year.

    I see. So, you are making mistakes after mistakes. Let me help me with the corrections:

    1. The wikipedia article you cited is out-of-date. It referenced a 2007 paper. China changes a lot in just a few years.

    2. The section of the article you extracted your figure is about “Africans in Guangzhou”, the capital city of the province of Guangdong. So, the number is not even at a provincial level, let alone the whole China.

    3. Just a few lines before, it states that “Estimates vary on the number of Africans living in Guangzhou: from 20,000 to over 200,000.” So your 50,000 is already on the lower end of the number of Africans in Guangzhou. Also, it clearly states that “official figures may be understated.”

    4. 19/50,000 = 0.00038 = 0.038%, not 0.00038%.

    5. 0.00038 is called a decimal, not a fraction. A fraction is like 3/4.

    As I said before, currently there are estimate of about 1 million foreigners in China, (not counting tourists and in transits). So, contrary to your intend, you computation actually support that China’s reported numbers are accurate.

    The scientists themselves who were conducting the specific research on how they made H7N9 virus increase its rate of human transmissions are already publicizing it.

    More than that, they are also studying specific strains from different locations on Earth, so that a gene, or race, specific attack can be made possible.

    The viruses being experimented upon “have been collected in at least 28 countries in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.”

    “As I said before, currently there are estimate of about 1 million foreigners in China”

    “This you assert without any reference to an authority whatever. LOL.”

    1. “reference to an authority”, you mean like your misreading and misquoting of an outdated wikipedia article?

    2. In my previous post, I already told you it is very easy to google. See this:

    “According to the 2010 census, which for the first time included foreign residents, China currently has a foreign population of one million”

    https://www.merics.org/en/china-monitor/china-immigration

    or this one which says the number of foreigner employed in China in 2013 is 848,500 (Note: not counting even spouse or students):

    https://www.statista.com/statistics/251166/number-of-foreigners-employed-in-china/

    and many other sources. It is easy. Go ahead to convince yourself.

    “Furthermore, I offered three estimates of infection rate, including one based on one million foreign nationals in China. So what you moaning about?”

    Because all three estimates are gross underestimates by large margin. Again, as I said in my previous post, and I will say one LAST time, you have to include millions of tourists/in-transits or even illegals or maybe dual citizens, etc.

    “As for bashing China, far from it….”

    Looks like a general chronology of 20 years of asymmetrical warfare against China.

    Might explain why I see so much ‘the Chinese are slobs’ comments all over the net. Lots of disinfo/misinfo and stupidity.
    Supposedly, the Chinese are much more hygienic than Africans and S. Asia. They may have made errors in design/execution of their sewage system re: flo rates, slope, etc. This problem of treating tp as trash rather than sewage is biting them in the ass right now (no pun intended).

    I’ve always noticed that Chinese can be very subtle thinkers. Not so great at certain types of creative thinking;they admit to that weakness. I’ve always admired the culture. They have a long tradition of meritocracy and will most likely become more responsive to their people as the nation feels more secure. The last 250 years of history has been pretty traumatic for China. i’m very sympathetic.
    While doctors, nurses and others are doing their respective jobs to contain this thing I’m certain that the MInSS, Army Intel, Navy intel, etc. are all digging in, working hard, sleeping little and drinking a lot of tea. They will figure this thing out.
    Just like the Iranians are being very subtle in exacting their revenge so will the Chinese. They won’t care if they eat it frozen.
    Bioweapon, possibly engineered to hit east asian genetics, seems extremely likely, On the balance of probabilities, factoring in cui bono and some technical aspects it is the Usual Suspects in DC/MIC/DeepState whatever you want to call it.

    I’m guessing it was stated like this:

    This needs to end.
    International stability needs to be worked out at a negotiating table NOT through asymetrical warfare.

After falling out with members of the Communist Party leadership, Guo was accused of corruption and other misdeeds and forced to flee China. He fled to the United States in late 2014[8] after learning he was going to be arrested after allegations against him including bribing, kidnapping, money laundering, fraud and rape,[9] and is subsequently subject to an Interpol Red Notice.[better source needed][1][10]

    “the trolls have not made the slam dunk…” – The quality of trolling on behalf of China as you can see here is very poor. I begin to wonder whether Chinese do not have what it takes to really challenge the Zio-American Empire. The soft power is always under appreciated in the authoritarian systems and usually it is directed only at its own people to justify government actions. That’s why it is crude. For this reason Nazi propaganda or Soviet propaganda and more recently Russian propaganda are very ineffective among foreign audiences but suffice for the true believers and supporters of the government. Chinese diaspora is large and they should be familiar how people minds work in the West so I would expect them doing a better job on behalf of China when trolling, doing damage control and propaganda but I do not see it.

    I have read somewhere that Goebbels was exasperated with his own propaganda and how ineffective it was to generate sympathy abroad for the victims of Allied bombings that once he wished he had some Jews working for him. The problem was however different. They were minimizing the effect of the bombings because for the internal consumption they as an organ of an authoritarian government were preoccupied only with beefing up their government image that its shit does not stink… so they could not show the full spectrum of damage and suffering.

    That’s why we get memes Germany stronk, Russia stronk, China stronk which you can see a lot here at Unz Review.

    It would be useful if they offered relevant arguments based on plausible evidence?

    Let’s start with the real story of the late Dr. Li:

    1. Li was a junior Ophthalmologist at a Wuhan hospital.

    2. Li overheard an unfounded rumor that SARS had broken out again.

    3. Li did not inform the CDC who, unbeknownst to him, were already investigating it.

    4. Instead, Li used social media to repeat the rumor to family and friends and they told their friends….

    5. Li was wrong professionally: it was not SARS, as he asserted in his tweets.

    6. Li was wrong legally: spreading rumors Publicly that are likely to cause panic is illegal.

    7. Li was not convicted of anything. After an hour of questioning the police concluded that he had merely acted irresponsibly and he was allowed to return to work.

    8. The US, which has been waging bio warfare on China since 1951, unleashed its media—the same media that lied about WMD.

    9. NONE of the media investigated the rumors.

    10. NONE of our media contacted the CDC.

    11. NONE of our media accurately reported Li’s encounter with the police.

    12. NONE of our media told the public that, worldwide, the outbreak will kill fewer people than die of ‘flu (a Coronavirus) in one day.

    Now let’s put this Coronavirus outbreak (one of hundreds, btw) in context:

    America’s 2009 H1N1 flu killed 18,449 cases that year and eventually killed 300,000, according to the final tallies in 2012 reported by the CDC.

    Were there anti-America attacks across the globe? Do you recall it took the US six months to declare a national emergency? Did any government from the onset in April 2009 through the end in April 2010, including the month of June, when H1N1 was declared an international emergency global pandemic, then send out a notice to its citizens that they should leave the United States? Close their borders to American travelers? Nope, not a peep.

    The U.S. H1N1 flu numbers were vastly underestimated and updated three years later, because that is the nature of such viral outbreaks which don’t care which country they started in. There is never enough man power, there are never enough test kits, there is never enough medicine or medical supplies. China is not trying to hide these hardships, they are well known, they are being reported on the news daily in China. There are always people who die, thousands of them whom we’ll never know if they actually died because of a particular virus. Those are the facts, not any problem unique to China’s healthcare system or government.

    Worldwide, China’s current outbreak will kill fewer people in 2019-2020 than regular flu kills every 24 hours.

  253. CanSpeccy says: • Website

    I said it would be useful if they (the defenders of the Chinese authorities) offered plausible arguments based on relevant evidence. In response you offer a twelve point statement which you call “the real story of the late Dr. Li”. Unfortunately, you provide no evidence for your account which conflicts in the main points with the account in the article (originally appearing in the Financial Times) to which I linked above.

    So you twelve points, even if correct, leave us no further ahead.

    However, your interpretation of events is highly misleading in one obvious respect. It ignores the fact that Dr. Li was correct in warning that there was a dangerous virus on the loose.

    Moreover, the implication that Dr. Li’s actions were irresponsible and were correctly suppressed by police seems obviously wrong in light of the way events have played out. In that connection, it is of interest to note that ten professors in Wuhan have criticized police action against Dr. Li Wenliang, which were in breach freedom of speech articles in the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China.

    In any the case, it is a fact that Dr. Li was punished for correctly giving warning that there was a virus on the loose which threatened a serious epidemic.

    As for your claim that “Worldwide, China’s current outbreak will kill fewer people in 2019-2020 than regular flu kills every 24 hours” that is mere unsupported speculation, and therefore of no interest whatever.

    It should be noted again that Whitney Webb is female. Godfree is no crack pot although a bias for China. Communism in Asia has a different connotation than in the West. In Asia, they are really anti colonial land revolutions against their colonial eras. I realise Americans after a hundred years of anti communist propaganda have great difficulty recognising Communists might care about and have policies to benefit their people. In Shanxi Province which is western China, my grand parents in law are locked up in their apartment, only my grandmother is permitted for one hour every three days to leave the apartment and purchase food from the market. She can only do so after a medical examination, wear protective gear, and if she is over an hour late, she would not be permitted to return. Such a system of control is only possible because there is in China a market and a police post in every neighbourhood within a few kilometres. This coronavirus is contagious through human skin pores also which is why doctors are dying. However as noted, it seems to be uniquely contagiousn and to mortally infect only Chinese.

    The USA has at least 6 bio-warfare labs near China– run byDefense Threat Reduction Agency–and I’m sure they’re doing G-d’s work.

    In 2013 a Chinese Air Force Colonel Dai Xu accused the US government of creating a new strain of bird flu now afflicting parts of China as a biological warfare attack.

It has been reported that the source of Ebola virus in West Africa were US bio-warfare labs.

    The cynic in me wonders that if all that gold China has acquired has attracted the interest of a certain international bankster outfit?

  261. Congrats UNZ! You have garnered another prestigious title in the CIA inverse honours list. canspeccy is a longstanding JTRIG bot. JTRIG’s panic over Scottish self-determination sent him to yammer lamely at Craig Murray’s site. He followed Craig here, and now is propagating the Big Lie against other threats to CIA impunity and their British puppet rulers. Clearly US breaches of the BWC are touchy for CIA.

    Webb summarizes others’ data and research in a long rambling regurgitation. Nothing new, just other’s research enumerated. Nothing new that’s not out there we havent read.
    No order to the data points or analysis. And as usual, she misses the most crucial point- probably bacause it was censored off the internet/ twitter before she got a chance to see it and incorporate it into her piece. Mangled mess of vaguely related, associative facts but no real coherent case made. Porton Down, France, Canada, Australia and even S Africa have WMD facilities that have done just as much in corona-bat development as the US. What does that prove? The most incriminating facts she seems unaware of. This particular hybrid goes back much further than 2018…

    How darkly ironic would be the U.S. citizenry painful, suffering decimation caused by the United States government’s criminal attempt of damaging China with a bioweapon a United States agency created contrary to international law and contrary to the law of the United States.

    One smart and clever angry biochemist loner could have produced the Coronavirus. Mad bombers get caught but a clever mad chemist would leave no traces of his evil doings. He could have added HIV and Black Plague cells into his wicked concoction. In medieval times there were thousands of Alchemists searching to synthetically produce Gold. It follows that in an angry world thousands of mad scientists are busy attempting to create the ultimate Bio-weapon. No man is an island and crazy Bio-weapon chemists should be spotted and reported.

    Not directly through bats to humans, it is thought another species was the intermediary vector.

    A civet /ˈsɪvɪt/ is a small, lean, mostly nocturnal mammal native to tropical Asia and Africa, especially the tropical forests. The term civet applies to over a dozen different mammal species. Most of the species diversity is found in southeast Asia.

    Kopi luwak is a coffee that consists of partially digested coffee cherries, which have been eaten and defecated by the Asian palm civet (Paradoxurus hermaphroditus). … Asian palm civets are increasingly caught in the wild and traded for this purpose.

    Recall the US govt response to Anthrax was: (Mueller-headed) FBI fumbled around (story was W. Bush ribbing Mueller at cabinet meetings over it) until they horribly smeared “person of interest” Steven Hatfill who eventually won a $5 million defamation suit–FBI never admitted mistake or apologized. Then they blamed the (dead) “crazy” scientist (why did a crazy guy have access to anthrax?). Later Amy Goodman on Democracy Now was the only media source I could find who gave a platform to a brave NIH researcher who stated the crazy guy only had access to “wet” anthrax” and the attacks were by dry weaponized material that went right through the pores in the envelopes. Not sure if the DN archives still have it this was at least 10 years back now. When the FBI has a press conference and proclaims “case closed” I assume it means “don’t ask me no questions” and go away.

  268. Is it possible that the extreme reaction to this new coronavirus (compared to the reaction to epidemics we’ve known about for years that kill and have killed way more people than COVID… but which are not causing the shutting down of entire cities) … is it possible that what is wanted from the extreme reaction that’s being elicited by coronavirus news is for zillions of people to be quarantined in millions of towns and cities?

    Maybe an effort is under way to change the way people have lived for thousands and thousands of years, so we no longer feel at home anywhere on our earth, and mostly stay in our separate shelters.

    Maybe this is another kind of operation like what the Y2K scare was, which intentional or not had the effect of motivating people around the world, who had no way of knowing the 9/11 attacks were being planned, to get their computer systems backed up for when 9/11 did happen.

    Maybe one reason for the current coronavirus effort is to have people mostly in quarantine for when some major upcoming secretly-planned surprise-disaster happens in the coming year or so.

    Here’s Whitney Webb’s well-supported report on plans to sabotage the 2020 election: https://mintpressnews.com/media-israel-intelligence-2020-elections-cyber-security/264361/ It’s a joint Israeli/USA project, not just Israeli. Evil people of all kinds.

    I think we’d be wise to consider the possibility that the endless onslaught of distressing, confusing, overwhelming information about unthinkably inhumane events is itself part of a massive intentional effort… a large-scale version of extensively studied group-psychology and brainwashing by means of “stress induction”

    including…

    …lessons in mental torture such as the ones in this training manual:
    https://nsarchive2.gwu.edu/NSAEBB/NSAEBB122/3-13-14_MR9864_RES_PART3.pdf

    …and the wide variety of mind-control techniques such as the ones described here:

    …and rules and tactics of spreading disinformation online like these:
    https://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm

    etc. etc. etc.

    It appears everyone on the planet is currently being subjected to these long-studied and long-developed mental-torture tactics. Including the torturers themselves.

    I hope someone somewhere can publish a report about this. I hope it might change my mind about the idea that this could even be happening. If not that, then I hope a report could propose solutions for somehow ending it.

    It would give me some hope if I had a sense that a meme that helps people retain complete composure by making us aware that stress is being intentionally induced can replace the meme that we’re helpless victims of uncontrollable disaster and panic.

    I’d have more hope if I had a sense that people understand that intentional mass-mental-torture can be and might currently be another weapon. And that with pro-active awareness of this, we can dodge that particular bullet by recognizing it for what it is. Otherwise, if we’re unconscious that intentional global psy-ops could be or is happening, we can only react unconsciously, and ineffectively.

    “the extreme reaction to this new coronavirus compared to the reaction to epidemics we’ve known about for years that kill and have killed way more people than COVID…”??

    The extreme reaction was to the outbreak in China. Bad, bad China.

    The outbreak occurred in the city at the heart of–and just before–their biggest travel week, right after 300 of our soldiers had left the annual World Military Games in Wuhan. (As Ron Unz says, how would we react if 300 Chinese soldiers left Chicago just before a massive epidemic broke out over Thanksgiving?)

    My hypothesis is that Covid-19 surfaced in the USA in mid-2019 but, as with the H1N1 pandemic ten years ago, the flaccid CDC did not detect it for six months. Whether by accident or design, the virus got to Wuhan where it triggered China’s efficient post-SARS detection system.

    As soon as they raised the alarm we blamed them for the outbreak, vilified them in every medium on earth, and predicted their imminent doom, as we’ve been doing for 70 years. Blaming China for our mischief is SOP. We funded Tibetan and Uyghur separatists for decades then, when they started killing Chinese citizens, blamed China for ‘suppressing Democracy’. Hong Kong demonstrations ditto.

    But there’s a fly in our ointment: the Chinese know the truth. They probably have Covid-19 post-mortem (“brown liquid”) tissue samples smuggled out of the US:

    Jul 14, 2019: Chinese researcher escorted from infectious disease lab amid RCMP investigation. Public Health Agency of Canada describes it as a possible ‘policy breach,’ no risk to Canadian public.

    December, 2019. A Chinese medical researcher is arrested in Boston trying to take biological samples back to China. Zheng Zaosong, from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, confessed to taking material from a lab in Boston. FBI Special Agent Kara Spice found 21 wrapped vials containing a “brown liquid” that appeared to be “biological material”. Zheng’s roommate, also a researcher, told FBI agents that two labmates of Zheng had succeeded in getting specimens to China. [Not agricultural samples, or samples with IP value, just ‘biological samples’].

    March 12, 2020: CDC director Robert Redfield admits to a House Oversight Committee that some Americans who were originally diagnosed as dying from influenza tested positive for Covid-19 posthumously.

    Mar 13, 2020: Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Lijian Zhao demands, “When did patient zero begin in the US? How many people are infected? What are the names of the hospitals? It might be the US army who brought the epidemic to Wuhan. Be transparent! Make your data public! The US owes us an explanation!”’

    The Chinese are threatening to reveal their evidence if CDC doesn’t come clean. Either way, we’re fucked.

    It does sound like the plot from a B sci-fi movie but then, the people who run our country resemble B movie actors.

    No, there’s no hidden, unaccountable oligarchy in China. That’s one reason for its success. The Party is the oligarchy and everyone’s cool with that.

    When I worked at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda beginning in 1979 there was a poster that another scientist had in their office. I saw it during the my interview for a position in the Lab I was hoping to get a Postdoctoral Fellowship in at the time. At the time it was the largest Biomedical Research Institution on Earth and had 10,000 employees and over 6000 of those had a Doctoral Degree in Science or Medicine. There were 4 Nobel Prize Winner working at the NIH at that time.

    The Quote on the Poster Was

    “Those of you who think you know everything are very annoying to those of us Who DO!”

    The virus came from Nature not a lab.

    The idea is “in the air” in America and perhaps elsewhere.

  277. Everybody and his dog does research on possible future diseases and international cooperation is normal. That basic research is not suspicious but necessary. Yes, poor security could cause a release of a dangerous pathogen and that’s why the US CDC shut down a US research lab. Quite right and proper and to US credit. That doesn’t mean that any particular country is working on a bioweapon. I vaguely recall that it was a Netherlands lab that recreated the Spanish flu. So what? They were concerned that a flu with a similar death rate could re-evolve. It’s useful to know whether one or two or many mutations are necessary. That lets you know how likely an event it is and how much expense in preparation is justified. Of course there are risks in basic research and that’s why regulation is and should be imposed by authorities with scientific credentials like the CDC. [email protected]

    America had the first program for biological warfare in the world as it had the first program for nuclear warfare in the world.

  279. @steinbergfeldwitzcohen

    Also, the numbers are a lie. On January 27th a Chinese nurse stated that 90,000 were infected. She kept a mask and Hazmat suit on to prevent the regime from identifying her. Western virologists have independently stated numbers between 75-100k infected in the last 2 days.

    The only way that they would know who was infected, would be to test for it. Being “infected” means that you have contracted the virus. Contracting the virus does not mean that you are symptomatic, or that you will be. If you are symptomatic, you may, or may not die due to the effects of the virus.
    It is claimed millions died of measles in the 19th century. I had measles, as in was symptomatic, when in elementary school in the 1950s. So did a lot of other kids, likely a majority. No testing was available to determine who had contracted the virus. I know of no one who died or suffered any of the alleged horrible consequences, such as blindness or sterility. Anyone my age that I have asked about measles doesn’t know anyone, or heard of anyone, who died or suffer the alleged horrible consequences. In 1959, the claim was made that more people were dying from measles than polio. I know 6 people that had polio, and none knew anyone that died, despite being hospitalized for polio. Lung damage (sometimes severe) and limb damage to be sure.
    The reality is that testing for this virus has been done in unprecedented numbers, therefore the number of people recorded as having contracted the virus is higher. The number who are symptomatic and the number of deaths actually caused by the virus are within the parameters of a “bad” flu season. South Korea, Japan, and Iceland were the first to do so. The result are less than chilling. https://epidemic-stats.com/coronavirus/iceland

  280. @Delta G

    Whether this version of a corona virus is natural or created aside, I find it interesting that the US has issued patents on corona virus. How can something that occurs in nature be patented?

    To rule out the possibility of it being created is really only an opinion, not a fact. As I have posted previously, Frank Plummer was not convinced SARS was the cause of the medical problems attributed to it. https://www.the-scientist.com/news-analysis/cause-of-sars-disputed-51794
    Plummer was part patent owner in 3 SARS inventions, all of which involved manipulations.
    https://patents.justia.com/inventor/frank-plummer

    All of the above aside, there is still no satisfactory explanation of how nature created, simultaneously, two different “Covid-19” viruses – one in Italy and one in China.
    Never say never.

  283. It’s now almost November 2020 and how things have turned out since then.

    Orangutan Trump himself has been ass-reamed by the virus, and his Petpig Pompeo has been desperately and pathetically trying to make Asian nations into some sort of Asian NATO to contain China with zero success.

    Trump now looks set to lose by a significant margin, and his sycophant supporters r now falling over each other to distance themselves from the wreckage soon to come.

    China is mostly over the virus, and Chinese r going everywhere unmasked and enjoying their holidays by travelling all over China, while it gets worse and worse in the US.

    Whether it was a deliberate biowarfare attack on China that failed pathetically and bounced back onto the US, or was simply just an incompetent escape of the virus from USAMRIID that later infected the world, I think we’ll never know. Maybe it was, as many scientists now believe, a pandemic that arose from nature as many others have in the past, in all parts of the globe.

    And so it goes. I’d like to thank Ms.Whitney Webb for her extremely informative articles on this topic and also Ron Unz for giving her a platform for exposure. Well done.
