WATCH: Perspectives on the Pandemic #7 Using the “bio-weapon” theory as jumping off point, veteran journalist Sam Husseini discusses anthrax, bio-labs and “gain-of-function” research

Investigative journalist Sam Husseini has had a storied career asking world leaders questions they would prefer to dodge, on subjects ranging from missing weapons of mass destruction to very real nuclear stockpiles. Now he takes on the “elephant in the room”: the extreme dangers posed by bio-research facilities not just in China, but all over the world…

The Intervieweee: Sam Husseini is a Jordanian-Palestinian independent journalist. You can read his work, as well as a transcript of this interview, on his website heusseini.org.

The Interviewer: John Kirby is the director of FOUR DIED TRYING, a feature documentary and series on the major assassinations of the 1960’s and their calamitous impact on the country. To join the struggle for justice for Dr King, Malcolm X, and John and Robert Kennedy.

China Says Wuhan Market not Origin of COVID-19

But Gao Fu, director of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, didn’t say where the virus, which has killed 350,000 people worldwide, came from originally.

He told the state-controlled Global Times this week that further research shows no connections between food sold in Wuhan’s market and the coronavirus.

Bill Gates bought patents for 4 covid viruses! WHY?
He has also paid billions to the WHO to spread the covid panic worldwide.
And has invested millions more into the manufacture of a vaccine which, by the time it is produced will have no value because the virus will have morphed. He expects to reap billions in profit and doesn’t give a damn for the plebs.
He wants to finish what his Father started, and devise a way of culling the population of the earth. His father was a Eugenesist.

“Bill Gates bought patents for 4 covid viruses! WHY?”

I know of three.

One was concerned with the use of an asymptomatic coronavirus in the detection and treatment of other types of symptomatic coronaviruses, in the patent’s case SARS-like coronaviruses. The use of such coronaviruses (one in particular, not owned by Gates) is used in the delivery of gene based treatments for a range of other conditions quite unrelated to infectious disease is decades+ old hat. Not bought, abandoned, which equals free, and there to be picked up by anyone who wants its non-exclusivity.

One was for agricultural use, is owned by an Institute that is not owned by Gates but which did receive a grant from his foundation for that specific application.

I forget the third and can’t be bothered looking it up. Nothing different. What’s the fourth (if it isn’t yet more Internet tinfoil)?

“[Gates] has invested millions more into the manufacture of a vaccine which, by the time it is produced will have no value the virus will have morphed. He expects to reap billions in profit…”

It was a PROPAGANDA PANDEMIC so it is doubtful that anything (if anything) coming out of Wuhan was the cause of the global panic, hysteria and lockdown. However, will agree with him that all of those biowarfare labs should be closed. They are a threat to life on Earth.

It’s all part of the disinformation used to push the line that this ‘deadly’ virus originated near a supposed bioweapons lab in Wuhan. This sows confusion and deflects from the real plan.
Of course no one asks the obvious questions. Not even this guy. Which makes me ask what is his agenda here?
Why, if there were a deadly virus originating in Wuhan, were the most devastated regions NYC and the UK, orders of magnitude higher than elsewhere? Why were there virtually no death in states bordering China? Or even in China itself outside of Wuhan?
Let’s not use the bs excuse that some lockdown saved millions either. The steps taken in these countries were pretty well much the same taken by states elsewhere.
The simplest answer that fits the facts is that the virus doesn’t exist. It doesn’t have to. The masses are so dumbed down you can frighten them with any hobgoblin.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
As true today as it was then.

There are several alternatives. I think it likely that there is a virus (or family of closely related viruses), but it is less deadly than a typical flu. It may or may not have been engineered and released on purpose. The Wuhan lockdown was entirely theatrical. The high death rates in Italy, UK, New York etc are a mix of intentional and negligent killings. And there are still Event 201 “flood the zone” propagandists who are pushing the bollocks of there being a pandemic.

Well, I had a very nasty flu-like viral infection which matched virtually all the symptoms attributed to Covid-19, so I wonder if I have had it. The strange thing is that this was in Cyprus in January when Covid was still supposedly only in China. I have heard others in other countries reporting similar experiences. This makes me wonder if this virus was not in circulation globally far earlier than the official narrative gives us to understand.

“Coronavirus: When will public toilets be reopened?
By Mary O’Connor
BBC News
29 May 2020”

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-52774794

They were never required to be closed.
The actual exemption from closure under the regulations (England) is here:

“42. Public toilets.
Commencement Information
I62
Sch. 2 para. 42 in force at made date at 1.00 p.m., see reg. 1(1)”

http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2020/350

Further, I cannot find anything in the government regulations at all that speaks of ‘social distancing’, ‘mandatory face masks’, etc. This seems to be media created.

In fact, it was a statement from NHS health professionals that the Government chose to ignore and decided to go with the media hysteria, instead:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/high-consequence-infectious-diseases-hcid

Quote:
“Covid-19 has not been an HCID (high consequence infectious disease) in the UK since the 19th March 2020, when it was declassified by PHE and the NHS, and also by The Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (ACDP) who were also of the opinion that COVID-19 should no longer be classified as an HCID.
They have determined that several features have now changed; in particular, more information is available about mortality rates (low overall)”
Unquote.

MEANWHILE in the USA, all guidance for ‘social distancing’ and ‘stay at home’ is totally out of the window since Friday evening – although masks are still being worn, but probably not for the reason the media intended.

I think it is not to destroy the labs, it is more to make who works there, what they do, and what they are working on, highly transparent to the public. Everything a research lab does educates the world and adds to the stores our global survival knowledge. Take land planning as a control of activity model. Each time the zoning of a single parcel of divided land is needed, the developer must engage a process; engage professionals to help in the preparation of a land use prospectus, and convince an appointed committee specialized to the area, to hold hearings and take public input, and develop a pro or con committee recommendation, as to the need, value, purpose, and likely outcome of the rezoning project. Then after all of that, notice must be given to everyone, a series of public meetings must be held, and the public then must be consulted, its consent or objection, determines whether or not rezoning occurs. Win, lose or draw, the details ( a rezoning prospectus) and public debate about the use intended of the parcel is produced, recorded, and distributed by the persons doing the rezoning, the public, and the government.

In the case of bio technology, a complete description of what has been done to date, and a complete description of what is to be done during the subject project in the lab should be subjected to the same kind of scrutiny as is the rezoning of a piece of land. Each science project, each scientist associated to the project, the science itself, the hypothesis to be tested, the manner in which the testing will be done, the safety aspects, the monetary aspects the expected outcome, and lastly, but most important of all the final report.. are all subjected to public scrutiny; the scrutiny becomes a history which becomes the content of a library of science.

Those who run governments world wide have proven to those they govern, that persons in government cannot be trusted. The governors have used secrecy and produce corruption. Their affairs are made subject to public investigations, their reports are peer reviewed, and made public. Until the public has veto power public officials, military officials, and bureaucrats will continue their corruptions. The need is not only to be kept informed, but to always have veto power to deny governor intentions that are not approved by the governed public.

It’s a very good interview, but sadly the guy waffles and presents his info in a tedious fashion, so most will give up before the end. He touches on a lot of important issues. I suggest watching with the playback speed increased.

1) the massive number of biowarfare labs across the Earth masquerading as medical facilities.

2)the use of *British* designed anthrax bioweapons during the false flag of 9/11

3)the origin of AIDS from the experimental oral polio vaccine that was widely used in what became the AIDS hot spots across Africa.

4)the refusal of the Soros fake indy media to cover the biowarfare aspect of the SARS2 false-flag

Britain has always been at the centre of bioware research *and* deployment since before WW2. Britain pushed America to drop the two nukes on a finished Japan so the effects of the blast on hundreds of thousands of children, women and men could be studied. But America would have done so anyway.

I see *zero* people in the comments here with the slightest understanding how satanic the regime of the West is, and how it has been this satanic from the beginning. Instead the fabian project that certainly raised the quality of life of ordinary people so bewitches the minds of the sheeple, the universal attitude is that the unrefutable satanic aspect is somehow compensated away. This is why the ‘left’ is so much deadlier than the ‘right’- idiots always think actions by the ‘left’ are ‘well meaning’- ordinary people are inherently cynical about the ‘right’. So the deep state needs to do its really satanic stuff via left-wing sock puppets.

If you cannot perceive the true nature of those that are your masters (and the deep state forces of the West are most certainly the masters of the citizens of those nations), you cannot formulate useful truthes about your current situation.

Take the UK- every parent sat on their hands while Team Blair made it highly illegal for any parent to remove their children from school for a family day out or holiday without regard of the age of the child- in other words losing even one day of the utterly diluted so-called ‘education’ at primary school became a high crime. You *cannot* be more of a *slave* than to live under such rules. Then, of course, under the SARS2 false-flag, Team Blair told a nation of morons that black was now white, and that education of kids was the least important thing in the world- and now the same slaves demand their kids are kept out of school.

Sam Husseini is one of those people who *wants* to pretend to himself everything is fundamentally OK, but the stench in his nose, wherever he goes, makes him feel that maybe Satan is everywhere. He witnessed thousands of pieces of info that form a single pattern that denies the standard left wing narrative about how the world works. He walks a line where he feels madness lies on the one side, and he does not wish to descend into that madness. For him, the final awakening would be a realisation that he lives in Hellworld.

It is a flaw in Humanity that almost no-one wants to look true evil square in the face. Look how the fabians persuaded the sheeple to *never* kill the true ‘criminal’ monsters amongst us. A Human monster can carry out the most unthinkable atrocities against the innocent, and in most nations said monster can expect to be released back amongst us within 10-20 years. And the fabians tell the sheeple this is a ‘good’ thing. I’m not talking about the ordinary death penalty that nations perversely try to apply to unfortunate non-Monsters who find themselves commiting murder. I’m talking about the actual monsters that every sane Human should want gone from our existence the moment they reveal themselves.

But the most stable of these monsters work for the deep state. They are called ‘spies’, ‘soldiers’, weapon experts. They have the heart of the ‘best’ criminal serial killers, but unlike those lone butchers, have the resources of the state behind them. What kind of person do you think designed Britain’s weaponised anthrax at Porton Down, for instance? But that ‘scientist’ was a *very* well rewarded hero of the UK’s fabian deep state.

Your “Zero” ranking of those who understand “how satanic the regime of the west is” might be a bit hastily drawn. There are countless people whose overall comments mark them as fully realizing that proposition – myself very much included. I have maintained for years that the United States is the single most evil entity the world has ever witnessed – presumably that goes equally for Britain.

There is a scene near the end of the Jeff Gibbs/Michael Moore documentary “Planet Of The Humans” which, though only a few seconds, lays bare any claim to enlightenment the West has ever put forth. The topic was fat based energy; the clip showed LIVE animals (I think they were goats) being put into an industrial grinder. Only the most satanic beast alive would even contemplate such an act, let alone fulfill it – and think nothing of it. It’s just a step away from doing it to humans.

We in the eastern half of the US have had cool downs and rain all spring. Perhaps in giving us as close to “ideal” conditions as possible, the geoengineers are mucking up the Gulf Stream; so that when that stream reaches the British Isles, it no longer functions normally. But that’s just an opinion.

Just to illustrate the state control of the supposedly progressive media, listen to Sam Husseini at 26:00 minutes.

Democracy Now! the flagship of progressive thought in the U.S. for the first time on April 16th permitted the notion that the lab in Wuhan might conceivably have been linked to the outbreak. That was in an interview with the president of EcoHealth Alliance. Its only other reference to the Wuhan lab was on April 6th when it “credited” the lab with discovering the virus.

All the mainstream outlets from WaPo to DN! snarkily dismissed any scrutiny of China as racist. Likewise they dismissed any possibility of lab origin – anywhere. Maybe Democracy Now! is not controlled. In that case, ideological blinkers make this progressive outlet worse than useless.

Yes, sure, the state troopers have agreed to arrest a black reporter to make themselves look like opponents of free speech and open news. Now which is more likely? That a group of rank and file cops have all agreed to that (though with what inducement is not suggested) or that like police all over the world they have made an arrest of a reporter showing what they do not wish to be seen? And when it’s all over, not one of those cops tries to sell the story to the media at large and make money twice. “There is no question this has all been orchestrated.” There is every question, from first to last. The thesis here is ridiculous. Looking round to see what is happening the reporter is signalling the police? A black man with no proven or even suggested connection to the police is ordering police about at a time when another black man was executed in public by them? The mental and emotional defective here is the commentator, doubtless a believer in any number of conspiracy theories. but then facts mean nothing to the bigot and the crank.

Conflicting reports on the Minneapolis protests here including one of police dressed as Antifa, a Mayor caving to Antifa violence, more fake media (playing ‘recordings’ of gunfire) and a predictable contribution by Michael Moore.

Antifa identified by uniforms, tagging slogans 1312 and ACAB (All Cops Are Bastards) and crowdfunding bailout fund online — according to Andy Ngo and SGT report

St Paul police officer provocateur dressed as Antifa protestor filmed as he calmly smashes windows – identified by ex wife https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/minneapolis-protest-riot-umbrella-man-george-floyd-a9539741.html

Police abandon Third Precinct Police Station on orders of Mayor Jacob Frey. Michael Moore praises rioters for seizing station.

I can’t believe you got more down votes than positive ones for writing this. I could not even go past the introduction in the video, implying that people who watch CNN are dumb by definition. I agree with most here that the response to this crisis (or for some the manufacturing of the crisis) has been scandalous yet I lament the fact that some among the Off Guardian readership are far right ideologues.
Police officers killed an African American man by sitting on him for 8 minutes while being filmed, but would never ever arrest an African American reporter doing his job without it being a conspiracy fomented by the arrestee’s network. Nearly universal lockdown worked in spite of the havoc it would start and indeed has created because most people have been indoctrinated never to question narratives coming from experts in the medical field. When police kill unarmed people of African descent, some white people have been indoctrinated never to question the versions of events given by the police nor the subsequent propaganda from authorities.
The pseudo-debunking in this video starts with a dull repetition of the word dumb to qualify CNN viewers, then spews out utterly contrived and unprovable drivel that only ends up demonstrating that he has no valid argument whatsoever but his white privilege and his racism. The USA used to be a country where people of African descent were routinely tortured and worked to death, the fact that descendants of these slaves protest the killing of yet another person of African descent really is what Reg cannot stand hence his ‘this is the new USA’. What seems to have triggered the police arrest (and Reg and his ilk) is the fact that Omar Jimenez did not use the word ‘savages’ or more politely but not less dismissively ‘rioters’ but ‘protesters’ when commenting on the situation. Aimé Césaire wrote in Le Discours sur le Colonialisme that he feared that the real reason for the people he called Christian bourgeoisie condemning Hitler and his final solution hinged on the victims having been fellow white Europeans rather than the crime being a crime against mankind per se. Now, in the USA (and it has also been the case in France but hardly discussed because it is officially illegal to distinguish people according to their origins or skin colour because of the event mentioned above) with this Covid affair it would seem that because people of African descent have been overrepresented in the death tally, that has made it easier for right wing racist nutters to dismiss the whole thing as a fabrication. For example my area in greater Paris, people received the highest ratio of 135 euro fines for lockdown breach in France, it is also the poorest, the one where you find the highest ratio of immigrants (real immigrants that is people not born in France) and non white people in the country, people who more than other groups worked in the essential sectors that never stopped working, finally of course my departement is the one with the highest ratio of Covid 19 cases (not discussing whether the official reason for death is true or not here).
A few days ago, someone here quoted Dead Kennedys ‘Nazi Punks Fuck Off’ with its final admonition (in a case there is a totalitarian state) ‘you’ll be the first to go, you’ll be the first to go, you’ll be the first to go, unless you think!
Sadly, below Arsebiscuits said about George Floyd of course : ‘is he even dead? Where’s the funeral?’ proving that Off Guardian’ BTL really suffers from a disturbingly high number of people who haven’t been following the sound advice proffered in the aforementioned song.
Thankfully the significant proportion of level-headed anti-racist Covid 19 dissenters still around makes up for the less appealing side of democratic openness as practised here, namely having to suffer intolerable twats’ opinions.

Investor and money manager Jim Sinclair says the coronavirus was fortuitous – and won’t go further than that – because it stopped a financial collapse many time greater than 2008. https://youtu.be/RDZQoQ61RrY?t=63 In Sinclair’s measured language, the pandemic came along just as the basic foundation of the monetary system was collapsing.

With so many side projects ready to go: social re-engineering, ID projects, vaccine projects that are supposed to take 10 years that we are assured will be ready in 18 months… it is unlikely the Covid panic “just happened.”

Either it is an entirely normal flu outbreak that has been ‘pumped up’ to look like a pandemic – or someone made Covid-19 happen.

At 21:00 minutes the Sam Husseini interview reminds us that 700 scientists signed a letter in 2005 to the NIH accusing Anthony Fauci of perverting their work by taking on so much bio-defense/bio-warfare work, especially given the U.S. anthrax “attack on itself” in 2001. Fauci said Bush-Cheney wanted the work done. https://youtu.be/2JbOvjtnPpE?t=1248

The intent and attempt to weaponise biology is undeniable.
But in order to frame this issue more clearly, the use of the infectious myth as cover story for toxic exposure has to be addressed. Otherwise the psyop of the targets own fearful defence reaction is left out, and the agency is assigned to biological function – enhanced or otherwise.

Taking the covid19 stats as a whole, it is reasonable to say that IF this was a bioweapon – period – then it did not go off. (or perhaps only went off ‘biologically’ as a proof of concept for specific experimental results). The overall cause of death figures do not greatly differ from other years, and are lower than some ‘bad flu seasons’. Its profile for the most part is similar to death by all causes. The deaths due to lockdown do not belong in the assignment of covid19. Nor do many of those who were in very weak health as a result of various other conditions and died as a result of a complex of bodymind failures.

However, the covid19 was NOT simply a medical emergency – and only became one by framing as pandemic, relentless media blitz – that has at no time stopped – though it changes tack.
It is identified in my opinion – as a psyop, and the bio-weapon plays a role in the reinforcement of the psyop – EXCEPTING its front end, which is the mandate or prioritised executive for vaccinations and medical or biotech interventions that are by definition biowar.

The covid19 myth is that it is ONE disease pathogen to which all else is assigned or subsidiary. This is reflected in the denial of service to most any other medical need. One pathogen to rule them all – and built into a new world order as a propensity for ‘infection’ (colds) that will never be cured and must be managed under biotech surveillance and reinforcement.

There are biological responses to high toxicity involved in the fact.
There are adverse immune responses as a result of recent flu vaccinations – that may well have provided antibodies that interact negatively with the body’s natural defences, or injected canine genetic material – including canine coronavirus – directly into the bloodstream of its target population – with cross reactive negative outcome. But in any case, every vaccine is by definition an attack on our immune systems – as are antibiotic and toxic exposures.

Basically, to operate a shadow government or private agenda set over wholeness, the integrity and natural healing response of wholeness has to be denied, demonised and substituted for by systems of manual override. This extends and reflects the mind that makes it -as set apart from life and the lives of others, fearful of loss of possessive controls, that reflect back as controlled possessions and pre-mptive in mapping attack onto anything that moves or changes outside its bubble of control, into which it thinks to bring life into and force it to conform to ideals taken for reality.

Fear is both the problem and the ‘solution’ as an answer that keeps on ‘giving’ but its fruits are negatively defining in debt, slavery and loss of consciousness and will, to a systemic paralysis that by definition cannot be moved against but will encapsulate or stricture the movement to death.

Fascinating interview. I shall be disseminating it widely.

One of the enlightening take-aways for me was around the concept of this ‘virus’ being a bio-weapon. I have previously hypothesised (including btl on this site a couple of weeks ago) that if this is a bio-weapon, then it’s the shittest bio-weapon since novichok.

Husseini made the point (toward the end of the interview) that just because this ‘virus’ is very mild in the majority of cases, doesn’t make it an ineffective weapon. If it achieves ‘their’ objectives then it has been a success. The key is understanding their objectives, rather than the effectiveness of the ‘virus’.

1) No doubt that Mr. Sam Husseini like many of us reading here are or will be called “conspiracy theorists”.
The term “conspiracy theorist” used by politics, MSM and their following sheeple is then often enhanced to the term “tinfoil hat wearer”.

We must then immediately contest this abuse by pointing out that we are only solving and informing about cases of “criminal machinations“. Thus we don’t care if a crime has been committed by several culprits (“conspiracy”) or only by one culprit (no conspiracy).
Like an police inspector we only follow the crime or the “criminal machinations“.
Don’t forget to tell the person who abused you with he term “conspiracy theorist”, that he/she is using the disgusting tactics of the disgusting CIA. This because it was the CIA that hallmarked the term “conspiracy theorist” when people didn’t believe the official narrative of the murder of John F. Kennedy. The CIA did this in order to make those who were critical minded look like crazy people.

But already with the murder of John F. Kennedy those who doubted the official narrative would have not stopped to try to solve that crime if only one (no conspiracy!) other culprit (other then Oswald) had been the murderer.
The same is true for those who tried and try to solve the murder of Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, the several(!) “criminal machinations” going on on 911 and so on.
Thus with disproving this term of “conspiracy theorist” also the even worse term of “tinfoil hat wearer” finds no ground.

2) Here we saw an excellent interview about the “criminal machinations” concerning deliberately produced deadly germs.

Now allow me to make a ‘by-the-way’ comment: Only in German language there is an excellent interview-video dealing with these “criminal machinations” concerning “Anthrax” and concerning “Bruce Ivens” and what is going on until today in that matter.

A chilling glimpse of the immediate future.

Emphasising the ‘back to work’ aspect of this technology is what will encourage people to use it. No covipass (or whatever it turns out to be), no work. Otherwise, nobody in their right mind would touch this with a barge pole.

Best case scenario is that everybody refuses to use this or anything like it. They can’t sack everybody; nor can they arrest everybody.

I often ponder that if everybody, everywhere simply refused to pay their mortgages, what would the banks do? Based on the principle that if you owe the bank a million pounds, you are in trouble; if the banks are owed billions of pounds, then the banks are in trouble (if everybody stops paying). Again, they can’t re-possess every house in the country; they can’t arrest everybody.

This is a similar situation. I suppose that’s what project fear has been about. Frightened people will do things that they would consider unthinkable under ‘normal’ circumstances.

Strap in. It’s about to get weird.

I remember – there was a spate of that sort of thing. I know a few people who were put through a similar scenario.

You could be right about this being another opportunity to do the same thing.

There’s another thing that seems to be appearing in some quarters as well. I only know of a couple of instances so I’ve no idea if it’s a trend or just coincidence. A friend of mine (works in logistics) is looking to change job, so is perusing the appropriate listings. He pointed out that the companies (large companies including govt contractors) he is looking at have all but dropped academic requirements in favour of experience. He has both, but has never seen the emphasis weighted in such a way before. One job, for British Aerospace (I think) doesn’t mention qualifications at all, whereas previously they required a relevant degree, with experience viewed as a bonus.

It may be that, whilst graduates are a ‘nice to have’ and can be ‘moulded into shape’ over time, under the approaching conditions, they will be a luxury that cannot be entertained. Whatever it is they see happening will require extensive hands-on experience to cope, right from the start.

As I said though – it could just be a coincidence.

I reckon they are thinking BIG. The virus will give an excuse for axing all sorts of services which they have been itching to axe for a long time e.g. day centres for the disabled (“Let them just stay home and watch the soaps!”)

Also – as you say, rewriting the whole job application rule book. If graduates are no longer needed, then the next logical step is axing the universities. (To be fair, that does highlight a problem. I graduated and then went for job interviews where the first thing they said was, “Your qualifications prove that you’re a smart bastard, but we don’t care what you’ve been taught. We’ll teach you the proper way!”)

What else? Well they could think, “Hell – the crime rate has dropped so let’s axe the police force”. The fact that it dropped because everyone stayed at home won’t matter i.e. when the rate inevitably goes up again, they might just shrug and say, “Well it’s too late to go back now!” as they lock the doors on their gated communities.

I would argue that the fear factor plays only a minor part in this psycho-drama. What people are willing to put up with in a state of panic, they would almost certainly put up with without the panic.

I cannot shake the Edward Snowden revelations. These occurred well after the 911 scare and, of course, well before this COVID-19 scare. And, yes, there was some grumbling; but then everything settled back to normal – and people just shrugged away being spied on by the NSA every night and day of their lives. No Big Deal for them. Certainly not a big enough deal to actually do something about it.

Not really this a.. Ch. virus. According to US lawyer F Boyle, PhD, bio-warfare weapons expert…. “I also went through the scientific article where the Australian health board working with Wuhan … genetically engineered HIV into SARS, that is all verified in scientific papers. In addition, it seems to me that they took that back to the [Wuhan] BSL4 and applied nanotechnology to it.
The size of the molecules are maybe 120 microns, which indicates to me we are dealing with nanotechnology. That’s [something]you need to do in a BSL4. Biological weapons nanotechnology is so dangerous, people working with it have to wear a moon suit with portable air …
We also know that one of the cooperating institutions [to Wuhan BSL4]was Harvard, and that the chairman of the Harvard chemistry department, [Dr. Charles Lieber], a specialist in nanotechnology, set up an entire laboratory in Wuhan where [according to reports]he specialized in applying nanotechnology to chemistry and biology.
My guess is, based on what I’ve read in the literature, that they tried to weaponize all that together. And that is SARS-CoV-2 that we are dealing with now.
So, it’s SARS, which is genetically engineered biowarfare agent to begin with. Second, it has gain-of-function properties, which makes it more lethal, more infectious. It has HIV in there. That was confirmed by an Indian scientist … and it looks like nanotechnology [has been used]…
