“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

And God said, “Let there be light,” and, “Let the water teem with living creatures.”

Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”

Then Tony Fauci said, “Let us improve upon God’s work and create viruses in our NIH labs”” – The New Book of Genesis

Where did the “COVID-19” or “Wuhan virus” originate? Was it a normal mutation in nature or did humans create it in a weapons lab?

First, let’s settle on a proper name. The name for the virus that caused the Great Scamdemic of 2020 is the SARS-CoV-2, which is short for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-coronavirus-2. The number 2 indicates that it is the second “SARS” virus that has caused an outbreak. The first one was in 2002.

COVID-19, which stands for Coronavirus Disease 2019, is a nonscientific name dreamed up the World Health Organization (W.H.O.).[1] The Director-General of the W.H.O., Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, explained on February 11, 2020, “Having a name matters to prevent the use of other names that can be inaccurate or stigmatizing.”[2] He also tweeted on February 11, 2020, “Under agreed guidelines between WHO, the @OIEAnimalHealth & @FAO, we had to find a name that did not refer to a geographical location, an animal, an individual or group of people, and which is also pronounceable and related to the disease”-@DrTedros #COVID19”

To what was he alluding? What group of people was he protecting from being stigmatized?

The W.H.O. has long been in cahoots with the Chinese Communist Party, which is why the Trump administration cut funding.[3] The world knew that the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak started in Wuhan, China. Viruses causing pandemics are often given nicknames based on the locations of origin. Therefore, in a feckless and transparent move, the W.H.O. engaged in classic George Orwell doublespeak to help the Chinese in their own propaganda campaign aimed at shedding blame.

Nevertheless, the term Wuhan virus caught on thanks to its use by President Trump. This author was one of the first to popularize it on New York radio stations[4] and books[5]. Just like the Spanish Flu of 1918, the Wuhan virus is a name that will go down in infamy. [6]

The term COVID-19 should really not be used at all due to its duplicitous origins of propaganda. However, if one does choose to use it, the term refers only to the constellation of symptoms of the illness and not the actual virus, like AIDS is to the HIV virus or shingles is to the herpes virus. It is completely wrong to call it the “COVID virus”.

Back to the question of origin, the SARS-CoV-2 virus first started to spread in Wuhan, China. There is no doubt about that, as will be detailed below. For a while, the Chinese government was trying to claim that it started in Italy or the United States.[7]

But how? Was the Wuhan virus created by animal-to-human spread in “wet markets” selling grotesque animals like bats for human consumption? Or, did the nearby American-NIH-funded virology lab in Wuhan let it escape? The intelligence community believes it is the latter.

When congressional intelligence committees were first briefed by Tony Fauci, the CIA, and other sources on the threat of the Wuhan virus in late January and early February of 2020, they were clearly given a scary story of a manmade virus that escaped from the Wuhan lab. It caused some members of congress to allegedly violate the law and sell personal stock investments before the information became public.

_________________________________

Forbes reported, “Four U.S. senators sold stock after receiving sensitive briefings in late January about the emerging threat of the coronavirus…

Senator Richard Burr, a Republican from North Carolina, and Kelly Loeffler, a Republican from Georgia, both completed their sales at a time when the Trump administration and GOP leaders were downplaying the potential damage the virus might cause in the U.S. and before drastic stock-market plunges set off by the pandemic. Burr is chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which receives frequent briefings about threats facing the country, and has experience responding to public-health crises. Loeffler…is married to the chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, Jeffrey Sprecher.

Two other members of the Intelligence Committee, Senator Dianne Feinstein… and Senator James Inhofe…also sold stock after the briefings…

Loeffler did not make any sales from Jan. 6 until Jan. 24 — the day the health committee she sits on held a briefing that included presentations from top level U.S. public-health officials including Dr. Anthony Fauci. She and her husband began selling 27 stocks on Jan. 24, according to her financial disclosure form…worth millions of dollars.”[8]

_______________________________

That was clearly panic selling. Those congresspersons were not told by Tony Fauci that this was a normal variant of a virus found in nature. Senator Tom Cotton, a member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, was briefed by Fauci and began telling the press that there was strong evidence to support the theory that the virus leaked from a lab.

_______________________________

In a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed, Cotton wrote, “The U.S. government is investigating whether the Covid-19 virus came from a government laboratory in Wuhan, China. Beijing has claimed that the virus originated in a Wuhan “wet market,” where wild animals were sold. But evidence to counter this theory emerged in January. Chinese researchers reported in the Lancet Jan. 24 that the first known cases had no contact with the market, and Chinese state media acknowledged the finding. There’s no evidence the market sold bats or pangolins, the animals from which the virus is thought to have jumped to humans. And the bat species that carries it isn’t found within 100 miles of Wuhan.

Wuhan has two labs where we know bats and humans interacted. One is the Wuhan Institute of Virology, eight miles from the wet market; the other is the Wuhan Center for Disease Control and Prevention, barely 300 yards from the market.

Both labs collect live animals to study viruses. Their researchers travel to caves across China to capture bats for this purpose. Chinese state media released a minidocumentary in mid-December following a team of Wuhan CDC researchers collecting viruses from bats in caves. The researchers fretted openly about the risk of infection.

These risks were not limited to the field. The Washington Post reported last week that in 2018 U.S. diplomats in China warned of “a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate” the Institute of Virology. The Wuhan CDC operates at even lower biosafety standards.

While the Chinese government denies the possibility of a lab leak, its actions tell a different story. The Chinese military posted its top epidemiologist to the Institute of Virology in January. In February Chairman Xi Jinping urged swift implementation of new biosafety rules to govern pathogens in laboratory settings. Academic papers about the virus’s origins are now subject to prior restraint by the government.

In early January, enforcers threatened doctors who warned their colleagues about the virus. Among them was Li Wenliang, who died of Covid-19 in February. Laboratories working to sequence the virus’s genetic code were ordered to destroy their samples. The laboratory that first published the virus’s genome was shut down, Hong Kong’s South China Morning Post reported in February.

This evidence is circumstantial, to be sure, but it all points toward the Wuhan labs. Thanks to the Chinese coverup, we may never have direct, conclusive evidence-intelligence rarely works that way-but Americans justifiably can use common sense to follow the inherent logic of events to their likely conclusion.”[9]

__________________________________

The really dangerous next question to ask is whether the Wuhan virus was simply being curated and stored in the Wuhan labs or was actually genetically engineered? Creating deadly viruses would be considered a bioweapons program, or weapons of mass destruction (WMD): The reason that the U.S. started the wars with Iraq and Afghanistan.[10] The Chinese and American governments would certainly try to cover that up. Have they?

First, let’s address the controversy of the low-budget documentary called Plandemic that focused on the tumultuous career of PhD virologist Judy Mikovits. The claims made in the film stirred up the veritable hornets’ nest and generated obvious partisan attacks designed to discredit her. Therefore, we know that she had something truthful to say and was a threat to Tony Fauci, his NIH group, and the military.

Mikovits claims that she worked at the Army Biolabs at Fort Detrick in Maryland near the NIH that funds the scientific labs inside. That is true and Tony Fauci, et al do not deny that. She also claims that the lab, and others like it, use genetic engineering to create manmade strains of viruses to make them even more deadly. That is also irrefutably true, as will be explained below. She then makes other claims that could be true or could be misleading based on human bias.

However, the entire Plandemic controversy was a red herring or distraction from getting at the truth. We do not need to the testimony of Judy Mikovits to know that the NIH and U.S. Army do indeed create manmade dangerous viruses. Tony Fauci admitted to this in a 2011 Op-Ed in the Washington Post. It is worth reading in its entirety. The following is an excerpt.

“A flu virus risk worth taking”

By Anthony S. Fauci, Gary J. Nabel, and Francis S. Collins, The Washington Post. December 30, 2011

Anthony Fauci is director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), Gary Nabel is director of the Vaccine Research Center at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and Francis Collins is director of the National Institutes of Health.

…Two recent studies co-funded by the National Institutes of Health have shed light on how this potentially grave human health threat could become a reality. Working carefully with influenza viruses they have engineered in isolated biocontainment laboratories, scientists in Europe and the United States have identified several mechanisms by which the virus might evolve to transmit efficiently in the ferret, the best animal model for human influenza infection. This research has allowed identification of genetic pathways by which such a virus could better adapt to transmission among people. This laboratory virus does not exist in nature. There is, however, considerable concern that such a virus could evolve naturally. We cannot predict whether it or something similar will arise naturally, nor when or where it might appear.

Given these uncertainties, important information and insights can come from generating a potentially dangerous virus in the laboratory

Understanding the biology of influenza virus transmission has implications for outbreak prediction, prevention and treatment. In defining the mutations required for mammalian transmission, public health officials are provided with genetic signatures that, like fingerprints, could help scientists more readily identify newly emergent, potentially harmful viruses, track their spread and detect threatening outbreaks. The ability to identify such viruses even a few months faster than by conventional surveillance provides critical time to slow or stop an outbreak. For example, the CDC implements public health protective measures and stockpiles antiviral drugs. Identifying threatening viruses can also facilitate the early stages of manufacturing vaccines that protect against such a virus in advance of an outbreak.

In addition, determining the molecular Achilles’ heel of these viruses can allow scientists to identify novel antiviral drug targets that could be used to prevent infection in those at risk or to better treat those who become infected. Decades of experience tells us that disseminating information gained through biomedical research to legitimate scientists and health officials provides a critical foundation for generating appropriate countermeasures and, ultimately, protecting the public health.

The question is whether benefits of such research outweigh risks…

Along with support for this research comes a responsibility to ensure that the information is used for good. Safeguarding against the potential accidental release or deliberate misuse of laboratory pathogens is imperative. The engineered viruses developed in the ferret experiments are maintained in high-security laboratories. The scientists, journal editors and funding agencies involved are working together to ensure that access to specific information that could be used to create dangerous pathogens is limited to those with an established and legitimate need to know.”

________________________________

So, in that deceptive and rambling Op-Ed above, what Tony Fauci and his boss, Francis Collins, were really describing, without actually naming it, was the highly unethical process known as “gain-of-function” creation of viruses that do not occur in nature. Gain-of-function is a euphemism for “make a virus deadlier”.

Most scientists condemn the practice.[11] Well then, how and why did the NIH get into the business of playing god if the scientific community condemns it?

Likely after years of secret military gain-of-function testing at Fort Detrick and elsewhere that never made it into the press, Tony Fauci’s NIAID started to officially create viruses (i.e. WMDs) shortly after his 2011 Op-Ed. Then, in 2014, “after a string of high-profile biocontainment blunders in the US, including the accidental exposure of workers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to anthrax[12], and a dangerous mishandling of avian flu samples[13], which saw a deadly strain unintentionally substituted for a benign sample”[14], President Obama shut down the Fauci/Collins pet projects and ordered a review. Ebola also became an epidemic in Africa and spread to the U.S. in 2014, which is another virus allegedly made by man.[15], [16]

In 2016, a “white paper” commissioned by the NIH (to whitewash their past mistakes and make it seem as if the NIH was being safe and cautious going forward) was published.[17]  However, this report made no conclusions at all, really, other than laying out commonsense vague guidelines on how to go about risking a deadly pandemic while pretending to be ethical in the process. In classic federal government style, it served to cover all the bases (or cover bureaucrats’ arses) and equivocated.

Then, in December of 2017, at the peak of dysfunction and confusion amidst the inexperienced new Trump administration, which was distracted by the Russian-collusion probes, the NIH somehow sneaked back into the deadly-virus-creation business by lifting the hold. The HHS issued Framework for Guiding Funding Decisions about Proposed Research Involving Enhanced Potential Pandemic Pathogens.[18] Francis Collins issued a statement too. [19]  Of course, these guidelines were so confusing, establishing layer upon layer of oversight committees, that any potential future blame for a lab accident that might cause a global pandemic would be obscured and impossible to pin on Tony Fauci or Francis Collins.

Note that this HHS report gave gain-of-function the entirely new euphemism of “Enhanced Potential Pandemic Pathogens” and obscured the truth even further by shortening it to the acronym, “Enhanced PPP”. By now, even scientists in the field were totally thrown off course. Enhanced PPP sounds like a luxury sportscar upgrade rather than a WMD. “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for.”

But the watered-down feckless 2017 guidelines of the HSS were further corrupted when the oversight and review process was done behind closed doors, not transparently as originally promised. In 2019, Science reported[20] that the same two virus labs in Wisconsin and the Netherlands, that allowed the mishaps causing the 2014 hold on research, were allowed to restart gain-of-function lab work without the public being made aware. That prompted another Washington Post Op-Ed on the topic.[21] This time, scientists were opposing the work.

Why was the Deep State of the NIH and military so motivated to keep this risky gain-of-function research alive? In the 2011 Fauci Op-Ed, they claimed that the vital purpose of the research was to know the genetic structure future possible pathogens in order to track their spreads earlier in an epidemic. However, that rationale does not pass the laugh test. It is a joke.

In the same essay, the bureaucrat duo let the cat out of the bag by writing, “[gain-of-function experiments] can allow scientists to identify novel antiviral drug targets that could be used to prevent infection in those at risk or to better treat those who become infected.” Ah, now it makes sense. The HHS and its subdivisions, which have too many financial conflicts of interest with Big Pharma to list here, were enthralled at getting into the highly profitable antiviral drug development business. After all, Tony Fauci landed his job at the NIH in the 1980’s by working on the AIDS epidemic and being involved in those early drugs. We will discuss these conflicts later on.

Why is the military involved in gain-of-function work being performed in high-containment labs located on bases, such as Fort Detrick? The military is infamous for sloppy inept management. Wasn’t the CDC created to handle all matters related to epidemics? One can only presume that our military is working on measures and countermeasures for a possible biological war, just as Russia and China are doing.

After the 2014 laboratory accidents, the military issued a report based on a Department of Defense (DOD) Inspector General report.[22] The Government Accountability Office (GAO) issued its own report on all of the high-containment labs spread across the CDC, NIH, and military.[23] The results were shocking to the scientific community. Mistakes occurred frequently and nothing was done to prevent future mistakes.

For example, “In 2015, a DOD lab triggered a much larger emergency. Workers at the Dugway Proving Ground, an Army facility in Utah, shipped live anthrax to 194 laboratories instead of sending safely inactivated organisms that could not cause infection. The dangerous pathogens arrived in at least one lab in every state and nine facilities in other countries, according to the new DOD assessment.

Making the mistake more egregious, the anthrax shipments were intended only for testing detection equipment, not for research, and so were sent to labs that would not have been equipped to handle the live organism.

The errors did not cause anyone to become infected, but they triggered criticism by prominent scientists and scrutiny from Congress and the White House, as well as calls to shut down select-agent research in the U.S.”[24]

Based on these ongoing safety risks at U.S. high-containment labs, it is not difficult at all to imagine that the Wuhan lab in China had an accident and the coronavirus leaked into the population. However, what is indeed hard to believe, mind boggling actually, is that Tony Fauci’s NIAID funded the foreign lab work in Wuhan, China.

Say what? Yep. That really happened.

“The NIH research consisted of two parts. The first part began in 2014 and involved surveillance of bat coronaviruses, and had a budget of $3.7 million. The program funded Shi Zheng-Li, a virologist at the Wuhan lab, and other researchers to investigate and catalogue bat coronaviruses in the wild. This part of the project was completed in 2019. A second phase of the project, beginning that year, included additional surveillance work but also gain-of-function research for the purpose of understanding how bat coronaviruses could mutate to attack humans.”[25]

So far, we have painted a picture of classic government incompetence that led to a pandemic. It is a story of negligence but not malice. But what if the Wuhan virus was intentionally created in these labs for the express purpose of killing people? Well, that would be an entirely different drama that could cause a war.

Judy Mikovits, PhD has already gone on the record accusing the government of doing just this. We know that she was arrested at the direction of the NIH and has been the subject of a concerted smear campaign ever since. However, if one does not believe Dr. Mikovits, then maybe Chinese virologist, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, is credible.

Dr. Yan stated in an interview, “The genome sequence is like a human finger print…So based on this you can identify these things.”[27] She then published a highly credible scientific paper detailing the exact reasons that the Wuhan virus genome is not like that of a naturally occurring virus and, instead, looks like an engineered virus.

“The evidence collectively suggests that the furin-cleavage site in the SARS-CoV-2 Spike protein may not have come from nature and could be the result of genetic manipulation. The purpose of this manipulation could have been to assess any potential enhancement of the infectivity and pathogenicity of the laboratory-made coronavirus. Evidently, the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 could have been created through gain-of-function manipulations at the WIV is significant and should be investigated thoroughly and independently.” [28]

So, this is literally “Tony’s virus”. Anthony Fauci and Francis Collins first fought hard to normalize an illegal bioweapons research program in this country despite numerous lab accidents and safety risks serving as warnings. Then, he opened the equivalent of a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise in Wuhan China and had them create viruses away from American HHS scrutiny. The escape and spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus was not some one-in-a-million rare event. It was highly predictable and likely.

Tony Fauci, among others, are to blame. He owns this. The Great Scamdemic of 2020 shut down the healthcare systems and economies of much of the world. It will take decades to assess the true impact of this man-made catastrophe.

Interview requests were denied or ignored by Alex Azar, Tony Fauci, and Steven Hahn.
