I hope you don't have any doubts that Covid is a bio-engineered coronavirus, a joint project of the Chinese and US governments. Now, both of those governments are humongous bureaucracies, so obviously the components that were responsible could be narrowed down to a relatively few institutions within those governments. In fact, the responsible parties could be narrowed down to relatively few individuals--starting with Tony Fauci, since he provided the funding, and nothing of this sort happens without funding. It's fine to blame the Chinese, but let's be real--the US is very much to blame as well. Moreover, the coverup of Covid origins--which continues to this day, despite recent revelations--has also been a joint project. A lot of big money interests in the US are implicated.
As Karl Denninger notes today (So You Knew, You Cheated, And It Killed Millions):
Don't give me any of this bull**** about how we -- we being people in our government including the CDC, NIH and others -- didn't know either. We did know. In late November and early December. There were reports of the lab being shut down and cell service interrupted along with deaths from atypical pneumonia. Our government knew. What's to determine now is exactly who knew both inside and outside the US, when did they know and what did they intentionally block or divert attention from that can plausibly be tied to the deaths that occurred.
The relatives and loved ones of those who died as a result of this stupidity are likely to want blood and if they do they should get it. This is a mass-slaughter comparable in impact to a genocide and should be treated accordingly up and down the line.
Read that last sentence again. Does that give you some idea of why the US is resolutely covering up Covid origins--still? Yes, this is about China but, No, it's not just about China.
By the way, Denninger points out something interesting that I hadn't been previously aware of:
In addition Fauci's wife presumably authorized [the grants to the Wuhan Lab] too, as she runs Bioethics at the NIH. When is she going to be called before Congress to testify, complete with subpoenaed records, as to what she signed off on and on what basis?
Now, if you want to know about the science behind the knowledge that Covid is in actual fact a bioengineered virus, consider this right up front. Lots of scientists knew right away that this was a lab virus--Nobelist David Baltimore, whom we've cited, told his wife that the Furin cleavage in Covid was "a smoking gun." Many other virologists came to the same conclusion. Andrea Widburg points this out (Dr. Fauci really likes gain of function research):
Just yesterday, David Asher, a former State Department employee during the Trump administration, stated on Fox that the odds of COVID being natural were de minimus:
In fact, I had viral statisticians at one of our national labs calculate the odds of this evolving in nature and it was like 1 in 13 million and they later revised it to around 1 in 13 billion.
How could those viral statisticians be so sure? You can read all about that at Zerohedge, in a lengthy post that draws heavily on an article in the Daily Mail (UK):
"No credible natural ancestor" means that anyone who tries to tell you that Covid occurred in nature as a "jump" from a bat or a pangolin in a wet market to human beings is either 1) full of sh*t or 2) lying to you.
Those two world class virologists--"Angus Dalgleish - best known for creating the world's first 'HIV vaccine', and Norwegian virologist Dr. Birger Sørensen"--feature at the beginning of the Zerohedge piece. The two conducted an analysis of the Covid virus last year and
the pair discovered "unique fingerprints" in the form of "six inserts" created through gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China.
They also conclude that "SARS-Coronavirus-2 has "no credible natural ancestor" and that it is "beyond reasonable doubt" that the virus was created via "laboratory manipulation."
Last year, Sørensen told Norwegian broadcaster NRK that COVID-19 has properties which have 'never been detected in nature,' and that the United States has 'collaborated for many years on coronavirus research through "gain of function" studies with China.
The paper detailing their months-long "forensic analysis," which looked back at experiments done at the Wuhan Institute of Virology between 2002 and 2019, is set to be published in the scientific journal Quarterly Review of Biophysics Discovery.
That should make interesting reading! In the meantime, the Daily Mail has some interesting things to tell us about what the two virologists discovered. This excerpt, lifted from Zerohedge, will demonstrate just how far beyond reasonable doubt their conclusions are. It will also serve as a reminder of how culpable the US is on the international stage for what has happened to the entire world.
Digging through archives of journals and databases, Dalgleish and Sørensen pieced together how Chinese scientists, some working in concert with American universities, allegedly built the tools to create the coronavirus.
Much of the work was centered around controversial 'Gain of Function' research – temporarily outlawed in the US under the Obama administration.
Gain of Function involves tweaking naturally occurring viruses to make them more infectious, so that they can replicate in human cells in a lab, allowing the virus's potential effect on humans to be studied and better understood.
Dalgleish and Sørensen claim that scientists working on Gain of Function projects took a natural coronavirus 'backbone' found in Chinese cave bats and spliced onto it a new 'spike', turning it into the deadly and highly transmissible SARS-Cov-2.
One tell-tale sign of alleged manipulation the two men highlighted was a row of four amino acids they found on the SARS-Cov-2 spike.
In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Sørensen said the amino acids all have a positive charge, which cause the virus to tightly cling to the negatively charged parts of human cells like a magnet, and so become more infectious.
But because, like magnets, the positively charged amino acids repel each other, it is rare to find even three in a row in naturally occurring organisms, while four in a row is 'extremely unlikely,' the scientist said.
'The laws of physics mean that you cannot have four positively charged amino acids in a row. The only way you can get this is if you artificially manufacture it,' Dalgleish told DailyMail.com.
Their new paper says these features of SARS-Cov-2 are 'unique fingerprints' which are 'indicative of purposive manipulation', and that 'the likelihood of it being the result of natural processes is very small.'
'A natural virus pandemic would be expected to mutate gradually and become more infectious but less pathogenic which is what many expected with the COVID-19 pandemic but which does not appear to have happened,' the scientists wrote.
'The implication of our historical reconstruction, we posit now beyond reasonable doubt, of the purposively manipulated chimeric virus SARS-CoV-2 makes it imperative to reconsider what types of Gain of Function experiments it is morally acceptable to undertake.
Zerohedge then goes on to cite extensively from an earlier article in the Daily Telegraph (UK) in which scientists from around the world support those findings. Consider what two of those scientists have to say regarding the now famous Furin cleavage:
Dr. [Ronen] Shemesh. "If I was trying to engineer a virus strain with a higher affinity and infective potential to humans, I would do exactly that: I would add a Furin Cleavage site directly at the original less effective and more cell specific cleavage site."
Flinders University Professor Nikolai Petrovsky found last year either "a remarkable coincidence or a sign of human intervention" within COVID-19 telling the Telegraph that COVID-19 is "exquisitely adapted to humans."
Right. A bat virus that is "exquisitely adapted to humans."
Zerohedge concludes with this telling paragraph:
Keep in mind - reporting any of this last year was punishable by social media banishment, demonetiziation, and hit-piece articles from propagandists peddling CCP talking points.
American exceptionalism on steroids. Or on a Chinese virus.
