Facebook’s Dr. Zuckerberg Censors Hydroxychloroquine Truth And Risks Lives

By: Daniel John Sobieski

No, I don’t know where Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg got his medical degree and license either, yet there he sits atop the social media food chain dictating who can say and know what about the Chinese Wuhan virus pandemic and its treatments and possible cures. He now says he knows more than board-certified medical doctors about the drug hydroxychloroquine, for example, and will deny you access to what they say, calling their judgments and pronouncement based on their studies and actual experience treating patients as “harmful misinformation. Dr. Zuckerberg has spoken and he will not let us hear a second opinion.

Zuckerberg, like most liberals, views the rest of us with contempt. He is to be the sole arbiter of truth and has no respect for constitutional rights like our freedom of speech. His defense is that Facebook is his sandbox and is free so it is not like we are talking on a phone that we pay for. Yet we do pay for Facebook no matter what he says. Our information is culled, mined, and sold. Ads are bought and placed on Facebook based on our being patrons of it. It is not free. Here is Zuckerberg telling ABC that Facebook won’t allow people to use the platform to organize to defend their constitutional rights to peacefully assemble and petition their leaders for a redress of grievances which include assaults on religious liberty and gun rights, both in the Constitution and to not be deprived of their livelihoods and use of their business property by executive order and not by legitimate due process of law:

FACEBOOK CEO MARK Zuckerberg said Monday that protests against stay-at-home orders organized on the social site qualify as “harmful misinformation’ and are removed from the platform.

“Good Morning America” anchor George Stephanopoulos asked the CEO how the social media giant is handling “the fact that Facebook is now being used to organize a lot of these protests to defy social distancing guidelines in the states.”

The anchor asked Zuckerberg “If somebody is trying to organize something like that, does that qualify as harmful misinformation?”

Zuckerberg said that if something states that social distancing isn’t effective to slow the spread of the coronavirus it is deemed misinformation and taken down.

However, he added, it is important that people can continue to debate policies and give their opinions, but “there is a line on this.”

Zuckerberg does not explain why BLM, Antifa, and other terrorist groups are free to organize and protest without social distancing… and why posts supporting these gatherings are not taken down. Zuckerberg does not explain that at the funeral of John Lewis there was no social distancing or that people that attended from other states were not self-quarantined for 14 days and won’t be isolated on their return. Did Zuckerberg take down posts promoting and celebrating this “harmful” gathering?

Trump rallies are dangerous but Democrat funerals are not. We can’t hold or attend the wakes and funerals of our loved ones due to social distancing but according to Dr. Zuckerberg people who want to protest these things are spreading “harmful misinformation.” Did Zuckerberg bar posts showing Dr. Fauci not wearing a mask and sitting elbow-to-elbow at a Washington Nationals baseball game?

Dr. Zuckerberg recently testified with other big tech tyrants like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey about how they are really performing a public service by pulling down any virus post that doesn’t conform to the accepted dogma that we should just shut up, sit down, and remain under house arrest until the experts who have jobs and regular incomes tell us when to jump and how high. He defended pulling down a video of a rally by a group of physicians calling themselves  “Frontline Doctors.” As commentary writer Eddie Scarry writes in the Washington Examiner:

Aren’t you excited to be told by Mark Zuckerberg what medical information is and isn’t acceptable for you to hear about?

That’s what happened this week when the techies at Facebook, Twitter, and Google-owned YouTube decided, almost all at once, to remove a video that showed several doctors lauding hydroxychloroquine as an effective treatment for patients infected with the coronavirus.

Twitter went so far as to lock up Donald Trump Jr.’s personal account after he shared the video, deleting the tweet and then freezing him from posting any further content for several hours. The video, according to Twitter, violated company policy against “spreading misleading and potentially harmful information related to COVID-19.”…

Outside of that video, other doctors have also testified to the drug’s efficacy in limited studies and with anecdotal evidence. Harvey Risch of Yale’s School of Public Health wrote in Newsweek just last week that the drug “has shown to be highly effective.”

In his Newsweek piece, Risch speaks to the war of hostility against hydroxychloroquine and I suspect one of the problems is that it is an old drug with little profit potential for Big Pharma and the salivating politicians they donate to. Risch notes he is not alone in his conclusions about hydroxychloroquine:

On May 27, I published an article in the American Journal of Epidemiology (AJE) entitled, “Early Outpatient Treatment of Symptomatic, High-Risk COVID-19 Patients that Should be Ramped-Up Immediately as Key to the Pandemic Crisis.” That article, published in the world’s leading epidemiology journal, analyzed five studies, demonstrating clear-cut and significant benefits to treated patients, plus other very large studies that showed the medication safety.

Physicians who have been using these medications in the face of widespread skepticism have been truly heroic. They have done what the science shows is best for their patients, often at great personal risk. I myself know of two doctors who have saved the lives of hundreds of patients with these medications, but are now fighting state medical boards to save their licenses and reputations. The cases against them are completely without scientific merit.

Since publication of my May 27 article, seven more studies have demonstrated similar benefit. In a lengthy follow-up letter, also published by AJE, I discuss these seven studies and renew my call for the immediate early use of hydroxychloroquine in high-risk patients. These seven studies include: an additional 400 high-risk patients treated by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, with zero deaths; four studies totaling almost 500 high-risk patients treated in nursing homes and clinics across the U.S., with no deaths; a controlled trial of more than 700 high-risk patients in Brazil, with significantly reduced risk of hospitalization and two deaths among 334 patients treated with hydroxychloroquine; and another study of 398 matched patients in France, also with significantly reduced hospitalization risk. Since my letter was published, even more doctors have reported to me their completely successful use.

Hydroxychloroquine is not a cure or a vaccine and Dr. Ritsch and the “Frontline Doctors” do not claim it to be, but the drug which has been safely used over more than five decades has proven in the real world to be safe and useful in lessening the spread and impact of COVOD-19. As Fox News reports:

Dr. Harvey Risch, an epidemiology professor at Yale School of Public Health, said on Tuesday that he thinks hydroxychloroquine could save 75,000 to 100,000 lives if the drug is widely used to treat coronavirus.

“There are many doctors that I’ve gotten hostile remarks about saying that all the evidence is bad for it and, in fact, that is not true at all,” Risch told “Ingraham Angle,” adding that he believes the drug can be used as a “prophylactic” for front-line workers, as other countries like India have done.

Risch lamented that a “propaganda war” is being waged against the use of the drug for political purposes, not based on “medical facts.”

Researchers at the Henry Ford Health System in Southeast Michigan have found that early administration of hydroxychloroquine makes hospitalized patients substantially less likely to die.

The study, published in the International Journal of Infectious Diseases, determined that hydroxychloroquine provided a “66 percent hazard ratio reduction,” and hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin a 71 percent reduction, compared with neither treatment.

It is no cure or vaccine but it can save lives – lots of lives. The question then is how many lives have been lost and will be lost due to the actions of Zuckerberg, Dorsey, and others to deny us the helpful life-saving information we need.

I, for one, don’t want to live in a world where the likes of Mark Zuckerberg determine which constitutional rights I get to enjoy and then get to decide whether I live or die.

China’s Claim that COVID-19 is Naturally-Occurring Remains Unproven

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

Scientific results are no less subject to misunderstanding or even political misuse than any other type of information.

At present, there is no more politically charged topic than the origin of the coronavirus pandemic, the outcome of which could have profound global strategic and economic consequences.

Clearly, it is in the geopolitical interest of the Chinese Communist Party to deflect responsibility for the pandemic by promoting the narrative, both in the scientific literature and the media, that COVID-19 is just another naturally-occurring disease, in which the virus transmits naturally from animals to humans.

That effort has been advanced by China’s refusal to fully disclose the information it possesses and by conducting a politically-motivated scientific misinformation campaign, facilitated by some Western scientists with a vested interest in the outcome coupled to an uninformed and biased media.

In addition, it is understandable — given the traditional trust in the objectivity and altruism of science — for people to not easily accept the determination that a highly infectious and deadly virus was man-made and released from a laboratory.

Nevertheless, now more than ever, we must strive to ascertain the true origin of the pandemic by carefully examining the veracity of the conclusions drawn from scientific data, precisely because the stakes are so high.

Admittedly, I am not a fan of phylogenetic or bioinformatic studies because they are often embedded with quantum leaps in logic and missing explanations.

The new scientific publication about the origin of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, entitled “Evolutionary origins of the SARS-CoV-2 sarbecovirus lineage responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic,” is no exception.

Its conclusions, despite any perceived analytical elegance, should be carefully scrutinized.

It would be a mistake to assume that the results presented in the new study support the claim that SARS-CoV-2 was a naturally-occurring “jump” from animals to humans.

The only conclusions that can be reasonably drawn are that SARS-CoV-2 arose from coronaviruses circulating in bat populations, a notion already widely-accepted, and that SARS-CoV-2 and RaTG13, the bat coronavirus identified as its closest relative, share a “sister lineage,” whatever that means, practically speaking.

The authors state that bat coronavirus populations are “largely spatially structured according to provinces,” which makes it difficult to understand how RaTG13, found in Yunnan Province, could have emerged as SARS-CoV-2 in Wuhan, Hubei Province, nearly a thousand miles away from Yunnan.

The authors also do not explain how SARS-CoV-2 could have obtained a receptor-binding domain structure, which is closest to that of pangolins (scaly anteaters), not bats, and simultaneously evolved a furin polybasic cleavage site that exists in none of the closely-related bat or pangolin coronaviruses.

Magically, the inexplicable origin of those unique structures found in SARS-CoV-2, which contribute to its unusual infectivity and pathogenicity, are attributed to unidentified genetic recombinations with yet “unsampled virus lineages circulating in horseshoe bats.”

That is, after more than eight months and hundreds of studies, no one is near to identifying the naturally-occurring source of SARS-CoV-2.

In contrast, the presence of those unique and deadly SARS-CoV-2 structures and its apparent “pre-adaptation” for human infection can be more easily explained by China’s use of artificial genetic manipulation.

Pray, Petition, and Prod Trump-Pence to Reset the War on COVID-19, to Actually Win

By: Arlen Williams | Gulag Bound

Calling Christians to prayer and patriots of all kinds to petition

McClellan was popular… at the start of the war.
“General McClellan Entering the Town of Frederick, Maryland—The Popular Welcome, Harper’s Weekly, 4 Oct. 1862,” The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX

They have called it a war, but if so, they are leaving the war strategy against COVID-19 to the confusion of corrupt generals and those field warriors attempting to save lives despite them. At best it is like Gen. McClellan holding up the Grants, Shermans, and Custers, in the Civil War; that was also devious Democrat vs. patriots. At worst, it may be worse than the scheme involving Gen. Benedict Arnold in the American Revolution.

On their watch, that is in the administration of Pres. Trump, and in the Coronavirus Task Force VP Pence directs, catastrophic obstruction has been wrought and profound efforts made in harmful directions, to the enormous potential gains of those seeking global technocratic profiteering and power. Meanwhile, tens of thousands of American civilians are unnecessarily killed. We need a greatly revised and well-articulated war plan. Frankly, we need justice.

Pres. Trump receives lots of cheerleading of various kinds; that’s great. He is also favored with a great deal of prayer, significantly more important; please make it much more. But in social media, for instance, I for one don’t see very much petitioning. Many times, many politicians need to be faced up by the People with reality outside the office and the beltway. Trump and Pence are no exceptions.

In the interest of succinctness and sequence, here is how I put it on Facebook, on the evening of 7/30, pardon the self quoting.

Please join me in intercessory prayer, that Pres. Trump and VP Pence move beyond merely getting the FDA to keep the use of HCQ cocktail preventatives and treatments for COVID-19 from being federally shut down.

They need to aggressively reset policy to give Americans the true top guidelines, suggestions, and support, in order to beat this disease and not subject us to genetically altering vaccine experiments. There is no pandemic where we have safe and effective prevention and treatment engaged.

And there is much more to this than even the tens of thousands of additional lives at stake, as well as those already unnecessarily killed. Much hinges on U.S. policy being reset, immediately, including investigations.

A significant face-up has just occurred by Frontline Doctors, with assistance from Teaparty Patriots (remember the Tea Party?). Their D.C. pressers have raised a great deal of awareness and the Marxofascist censoring of their massively observed communications has brought yet more. The Monday conference also brought a Tuesday audience with Pence and one assistant. On Wednesday, FDA Director Stephen Hahn qualified the June rescinding of FDA authorization for emergency hydroxychloroquine use with a declaration into the breeze that, it’s all “a decision between a doctor and a patient.” Trump spoke again of the use of HCQ treatments, saying “Many doctors think it’s extremely good and some don’t; I think it’s become very political.” Taking it just that far wasn’t all that governmental of you though, Mr. President.

This is not just about the attempts of Democrats to make Trump look bad so they can win an election. That is only one step, along with mass vaccination experimentation and much more. All that is the subject of another article and more, but in the meantime, at the bottom of this one, are links for the consideration.*

Time to heed what Frontline Doctor Simone Gold plead, in the Tuesday presser, “Let’s all tweet the president. Demand hydroxychloroquine…” (Monday and Tuesday presser videos on this Globe & Malevolence page, a bit out of order, Monday AM, Tuesday, Monday PM.) Let’s make phone calls to the White House. Let’s press the president and vice president, too. Letters still carry weight. Let’s do all those people-power things… as the death toll rises.

Clearly, our Gen. McClellan, Anthony Fauci had a big clue of what should have been done early on, since, in 2005, he suggested chloroquine to the world, to fight the coronavirus threat of that time. What had to be done is what still has to be done. The federal government must set harder, authorized, and suggested guidelines for:

  • protecting those who are most vulnerable (rather than effectively murdering them, by sending disease carriers into nursing homes, as numerous Democrat governors have done)
  • treating with the best available remedy [which at present seems to be hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), plus zinc, plus azithromycin]
  • use of HCQ plus zinc as prophylaxis, as Pres. Trump has personally done and as countless physicians and nurses do
  • ostensibly, the use of inhaled Budesonide, the popular asthma medicine, at the very earliest signs of a reaction in the direction of SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) since a Dr. Richard Bartlett apparently knows what he is doing
  • the use of classic inoculations, from the blood of those with antibodies

God bless you, feds, feel free to add further actually positive measures to the list, rather than, say, torture-murder by high-pressure ventilation, as has apparently been a common cause of many deaths in Cuomo and de Blasio’s New York City (I would much rather take the World Trade Center ride if somehow I had to choose)

Pres. Trump seems to be ducking behind misapplied principles of federalism and deference to a few alleged experts, especially those from prior administrations, such as the NIH’s Francis Collins, NIAID’s Anthony Fauci, and Deborah Birx, and CDC’s Robert Redfield. As with most holdovers from the globalist administrations, they have had years and years to be steeped in influence and payola games. Is it not better to foment the intercommunication of physicians in the field and to establish guidelines by what they mutually find to be successful? That sounds more like America at war in a healthcare emergency. We were never to be a nation of (despotic) ministerial control; that is for communist and fascist nations, which means it’s for no one.

Let us use whatever means we can, to call our Commander in Chief to make aggressive adjustments. And let the Marxstream media, the devil, and the spirit of McClellan take the hindmost.

Also, a White House Petition: “Permitting over-the-counter (OTC) use of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) to protect against COVID-19 under an emergency EO,” please sign with me, though this is far from enough. Name and email, then verify in your email client, it takes maybe twelve seconds.

Extra Credit: Please ask the Lord above and our public servants down here whether adequate investigations are underway to determine whether Chinese or other agents have been engaged in active measures to spread the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

We close with a glimpse of the state of the art of Mr. Art of the Deal, God bless him. OAN’s 7/30 report on Trump and hydroxychloroquine:

Re. Gaetz Files Criminal Referral Against CEO Zuckerberg

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Washington, D.C.  Today, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) filed a criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for making materially false statements to Congress while under oath during two joint hearings in Congress on April 10th, 2018 and April 11th, 2018.

During a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and also a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, Mr. Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied his company engaged in bias against conservative speech, persons, policies, or politics and also denied that Facebook censored and suppressed content supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives.

In June of 2020 however, Project Veritas published the results of an undercover investigation featuring two whistleblowers who worked as Facebook’s “content moderators,” revealing that the overwhelming majority of content filtered by Facebook’s AI program was content in support of President Donald Trump, Republican candidates for office, or conservatism in general.

“Oversight is an essential part of Congress’ constitutional authority,” Congressman Gaetz states in the letter. “As a member of this body, I question Mr. Zuckerberg’s veracity and challenge his willingness to cooperate with our oversight authority, diverting congressional resources during time-sensitive investigations, and materially impeding our work. Such misrepresentations are not only unfair, they are potentially illegal and fraudulent.”

The letter refers Mr. Zuckerberg to the Department of Justice for an investigation into the false statements made to Congress while under oath.

Full text of the letter sent to Attorney General William Barr may be found PDF iconHERE and below.

VIA ELECTRONIC TRANSMISSION

The Honorable William Barr

Attorney General of the United States

United States Department of Justice

950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20530

Dear Attorney General Barr:

I write to urge you to investigate the conduct of Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, Inc., before the United States Congress.

On April 10, 2018, Mr. Zuckerberg testified in a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee. The next day, Mr. Zuckerberg testified before the House Energy and Commerce Committee. On both occasions, members of Congress asked Mr. Zuckerberg about allegations that Facebook censored and suppressed content supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives. In his responses, Mr. Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied any bias against conservative speech, persons, policies, or politics. Mr. Zuckerberg also dismissed the suggestion that Facebook exercises any form of editorial manipulation. However, recent reports from Project Veritas, featuring whistleblowers who worked as Facebook’s “content moderators,” have shown ample evidence of such bias and manipulation.

Two content moderators, Zach McElroy and Ryan Hartwig, both worked on the Facebook content review flow generated by Facebook’s artificial intelligence (AI) program for flagging questionable content. McElroy worked at the Facebook-Cognizant facility in Tampa, Florida and Hartwig worked at the Facebook-Cognizant facility in Phoenix, Arizona.

On June 23, 2020, Project Veritas published the results of an undercover investigation featuring the aforementioned whistleblowers. Their report revealed that the overwhelming majority of content filtered by Facebook’s AI program was content in support of President Donald Trump, Republican candidates for office, or conservatism in general. This alone is already an indication of bias within the platform.

Once flagged by Facebook’s AI, moderators reviewed the filtered content and adjudicated whether it qualified as removable. According to the Veritas report and undercover footage, the adjudicators were outspoken about their political bias against Republicans and actively chose to eliminate otherwise-allowable content from the platform and from public view simply due to its political orientation. This arbitrary and capricious behavior is not done in good faith, and falls outside of the express intent of §230 of the Communications Decency Act, which affords Facebook liability protection as long as the platform moderates content in “good faith.”

Additionally, these facts are in direct contrast to Mr. Zuckerberg’s testimony before Congress where he stated under oath that Facebook is a politically-neutral platform and that he personally is working to root out any employees who are restricting speech based on Silicon Valley’s overwhelmingly leftist culture.

Project Veritas’ undercover footage shows that a great deal of “political speech” supporting the President was labeled “hate speech,” or was considered in violation of Facebook’s “Community Standards.” At the same time, speech promoting violence against the President and his supporters was labeled as merely “political,” and was thus allowed to stay on the platform. For example, McElroy captured a shot of a Facebook corporate ruling that an illustration of a hand holding a knife slashing the throat of the President, captioned by “Fuck Trump,” would be allowed as political speech, despite being in clear violation of Facebook’s guidelines. In this case, the guidance to content moderators instructed them to watch for hostility directed at the gallery that posted the image.

Facebook’s AI screening content is not politically neutral. Neither are the moderators hired to review content flagged by the AI program. This stands in opposition to Mr. Zuckerberg’s congressional testimony and violates the “good faith” provision of Section 230(c)(2)(A) of the Communications Decency Act.

Accordingly, I respectfully refer Mr. Zuckerberg to the Department for an investigation of potential violations of 18 U.S.C. §§1001, 1505, and 1621 for materially false statements made to Congress while testifying under oath.

Oversight is an essential part of Congress’ constitutional authority. Customarily, Congress is grateful to citizens who come forward with relevant information in good faith, as the aforementioned whistleblowers have done. As a member of this body, I question Mr. Zuckerberg’s veracity and challenge his willingness to cooperate with our oversight authority, diverting congressional resources during time-sensitive investigations, and materially impeding our work. Such misrepresentations are not only unfair, they are potentially illegal and fraudulent.

I hope you will give this referral full and proper consideration. If you need further clarification, please contact my chief of staff, Jillian Lane-Wyant.

Sincerely,

Matt Gaetz

Member of Congress

Feckless Fauci Lies About Masks And Nearly Everything Else

By: Daniel John Sobieski

There are so many things wrong with the picture of Dr. Fauci taking in a Washington Nationals baseball game that one does not know where to start – and no it is not the fact that at that moment he is not wearing a mask. The first thing is that he is there at all, unlike the rest of America that he forbids from watching a baseball game. They’d like to take in a game too but only Fauci, secure in the knowledge that he has a regular job and a regular paycheck gets to enjoy America’s new favorite national pastime, players kneeling during the National Anthem.

Dr. Fauci took a break from his world tour long enough to take in a game and throw out the first pitch, which was predictably wild and to the left, the latest in a long series of curveballs he has thrown at us. After all, doing photo shoots ad interviews for InStyle Magazine can be exhausting. As the New York Post reported:

Dr. Anthony Fauci can add cover model to his resume.

Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, ditched his mask to pose for the September cover of InStyle magazine.

The top infectious disease expert invited photographer Frankie Alduino to his home last month to capture him sporting sunglasses and a button-down for the glossy, poolside shoot.

Fauci and his wife, bioethicist Dr. Christine Grady, also spoke with journalist Norah O’Donnell for an interview that will be featured in the issue.

To ask a question that would be asked of President Trump at the next press briefing had he done so, how many COVID deaths were there during the photoshoot or during the baseball game that people watched on TV because they have no jobs, they have lost their businesses or are just locked up in their homes under your order? The left-wing press would never ask such a question of the great Dr. Fauci, who once suggested millions would die if we didn’t shut up, sit down and obey his sage advice. Photo-ops are things evil conservative Presidents do.

Certainly, Fauci took umbrage at the question of where was his mask and why he was not social distancing with colleagues while he was sitting in the stands at the game. As the New York Post reported:

“I had my mask around my chin. I had taken it down. I was totally dehydrated and I was drinking water, trying to rehydrate myself,” Fauci insisted. “And by the way, I was negative COVID literally the day before. So I guess people want to make a big event. I wear a mask all the time when I’m outside. To pull it down to take some sips of water and put it back up again, I guess if people want to make something about that, they can. But to me, I think that’s just mischievous.”

In one image, Fauci was seen with his mask on his chin grinning at a friend to his right. In another image, Fauci looked straight ahead watching the game, with empty hands pointed toward the field.

You weren’t rehydrating yourself, Dr. Fauci, you were being a hypocrite, a fraud and a liar. Why can you and your companions juke elbow-to-elbow while you and your ilk ban people sitting three to a pew in a church in observing the constitutional freedom of religion you took from them? The esteemed pundit John Nolte came to this conclusion recently on the pages of Breitbart:

…Fauci is a stone-cold liar. And if he’s not a stone-cold liar, his only defense is that he is a fraud….

For months Fauci has been everywhere, all over TV, urging Americans to lock themselves down, to abandon their jobs, their sick, and dying family members, the small businesses they spent their lives getting off the ground; he urged us to drive our economy into the dirt, pull children who desperately need structure out of school, forgo once-in-a-lifetime graduations and graduation parties, cancel weddings and vacations…

Fauci’s message was clear, militant, terrifying, and relentless: If you don’t do these things, if you don’t sacrifice these things, if you don’t give up your liberty and prosperity, you are no better than a serial killer. The coronavirus is a unique and deadly killer, a particularly infectious and fatal disease, unlike anything we’ve seen in more than a century.

Unless, of course, you are Dr. Fauci and want to take in a baseball game. The rest of us watch the experts take away their constitutional rights under the guise of protecting our health. They are truly America’s huddled masses yearning to breathe free under the stifling oppression of government mandates. They watch threats to their health and safety grow as liberal jurisdictions release tens of thousands of felons onto the streets while calling for the defunding of ICE and the police. They can’t patronize our local businesses but rioters can burn them down. People going to church are stalked and ticketed but arsonists and looters are allowed to roam free.

The Wuhan virus pandemic is a liberal/progressive dream come true. It gives them the recession they have prayed for, the only time they pray, to oust President Trump. Their reason for getting up in the morning is to enact laws and programs that control every aspect of our lives and the Wuhan virus gives them the chance to do just that. They are not letting this crisis go to waste moving swiftly to exercise the authority they do not legally have to shred the unalienable rights our Creator endowed us with and the Constitution is written to protect.

Americans are tired of an oppressive government that for our own good, they tell us, represents simultaneously the most benign and evil of motives, locks us in our homes based on computer models that have never been right from day one and health guidelines that keep changing so much they might as well be written on an Etch-a-Sketch. They want to “flatten the curve” as they succeed in crushing our hopes and dreams. They seek treatments and a cure for a virus ignoring the healthcare costs of crushed lives and dreams, the human costs of lost jobs and careers, of nest eggs broken on the ground, of people who used to provide for their families fighting in stores over rolls of toilet paper. We are being guided by the best infectious disease experts in the world, we are told, experts so smart they didn’t anticipate or consider the lives lost from depression, suicide, drug and alcohol addiction and despair in a land where abortion is considered a right. An essential procedure but a heart stint and CT scans not so much.

Americans are poor from an economy brought to its knees by a malevolent adversary, China, and a government whose leaders who chat with late-night talk show hosts and sit at home in their mansions in gated communities eating expensive ice cream stored in refrigerator freezers few Americans could afford when times were good and normal.

Americans are huddled in their homes, in numbers the government must approve of. The Last Supper would have been illegal under current guidelines as it involved more than 12 people having dinner outside their own homes.

And they yearn to breathe free, wanting to play catch with their kids in an empty park only to be taken away by the police state that has arisen around them. They want to paddle a kayak on an empty private lake or to hear a Sunday homily or sermon over a speaker in their cars in a church parking lot without a bevy of Barney Fifes chasing them down and handing them tickets for amounts higher than most criminal bail amounts. Like William Wallace in “Braveheart,” they are shouting “Freedom!

Dr. Fauci, who acts like he’s President and not Trump,  would have us just sit here and wait for a vaccine that may or may not come and may or may not work while our economy atrophies and people turn to drugs, alcohol, child abuse, domestic violence, and even suicide as their nest eggs dreams, livelihoods evaporate in a one-size-fits-all form of house arrest that treats Idaho the same as Manhattan. Many would argue, and I count myself among them, that your consistently wrong advice using consistently wrong computer models has led to needless suffering and death.

Fauci has made many meandering and conflicting prognostications over time. Tucker Carlson on his Fox News show recently asked Dr. Marty Makary, Ptofessor of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University what he thought of Fauci’s performance thus far and his assessment was not good:

He is a very nice gentleman. He’s a good laboratory virologist. But you know, in terms of preparing this country, he missed it.

He missed this one. For two months from January 15th when we had our first case confirmed walking around in the United States on U.S. oil until March 15th, with the country latching on to every word he says, he never once prepared this country with anything beyond simple hygiene and basic virology lessons.

He went on the media every day, on every show. Never once did we hear, let’s get ready with more PPE. Let’s build up our stockpiles. Let’s stop nonessential travel. Let’s get more swabs. Let’s build up capacity with reagents and testing.

So, that was a big miss, and I don’t know whether or not to blame him because we all make mistakes, or the entire country putting their faith and stock in one doctor.

Ouch.  His pronouncements have been dangerously and consistently inaccurate as when he assured us that the coronavirus was nothing to worry about and we should just get on with our lives. As The Hill reported on January 26:

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), said Sunday the American public shouldn’t worry about the coronavirus outbreak in China.

“It’s a very, very low risk to the United States,” Fauci said during an interview with radio show host John Catsimatidis.

“But it’s something that we as public health officials need to take very seriously… It isn’t something the American public needs to worry about or be frightened about. Because we have ways of preparing and screening of people coming in [from China]. And we have ways of responding – like we did with this one case in Seattle, Washington, who had traveled to China and brought back the infection.”

Or how about his sage advice on masks and the now-you-need-them now-you-don’t flip-flop of the so-called “experts.” As Dr. Fauci discussed the matter on CBS’ “60 Minutes” on March 8:

When it comes to preventing coronavirus, public health officials have been clear: Healthy people do not need to wear a face mask to protect themselves from COVID-19.

“There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask,” infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci told 60 Minutes. 

While masks may block some droplets, Fauci said, they do not provide the level of protection people think they do. Wearing a mask may also have unintended consequences: People who wear masks tend to touch their face more often to adjust them, which can spread germs from their hands.

Coronavirus was nothing to worry about. There was no need to wear face masks. Fauci has been the Pied Piper of economic and medical misinformation. After he changed his mind and decided we needed to shut down the world’s greatest and booming economy, he did so on the basis of bogus models.

First Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx used the discredited Ferguson model in Britain to persuade Trump to lock down the world’s greatest economy. A New York Times reporter wrote on how apocalyptic nonsense from researcher Neil Ferguson and the Imperial College of Britain was used to dupe the WhiteHouse Coronavirus Task Force and influence President Trump to accept Fuci’s draconian lockdown.  Sheri Fink at The New York Times back on March 16, 2020, described the scenario that led to the US economic lockdown:

Sweeping new federal recommendations announced on Monday for Americans to sharply limit their activities appeared to draw on a dire scientific report warning that, without action by the government and individuals to slow the spread of coronavirus and suppress new cases, 2.2 million people in the United States could die.

To curb the epidemic, there would need to be drastic restrictions on work, school, and social gatherings for periods of time until a vaccine was available, which could take 18 months, according to the report, compiled by British researchers. They cautioned that such steps carried enormous costs that could also affect people’s health, but concluded they were “the only viable strategy at the current time.”

That is because different steps, intended to drive down transmission by isolating patients, quarantining those in contact with them and keeping the most vulnerable apart from others for three months, could only cut the predicted death toll by half, the new report said…

…Asked at a news conference with President Trump about what had led to the change in thinking by a White House task force, Dr. Deborah Birx, one of the task force leaders, said new information had come from a model developed in Britain.

We are trapped in this suicidal national lockdown because Dr. Fauci relied on and believed a report from some doofus who in 2005 predicted that as many as 200 million people would die from the bird flu and in 2009 said British deaths from the swine flu would number 500,000 annually. Deaths numbered 500.

Even Fauci must have realized the absurdities of such a number from the Ferguson model, for he soon turned to another model run by the University of Washington. But that model’s projections on cases and deaths changed enormously and frequently as new data came in, making accurate projections unreliable. Even Fauci noted:

“As we’re getting more data and seeing the positive of effect of mitigation, those numbers are going to be downgraded, as you’ve said,” Dr. Fauci said on Fox News. “I don’t know exactly what the numbers are going to be, but right now it looks like it’s going to be less than the original projection.”

Okay, let the man who doesn’t know that the numbers are based on computer models that couldn’t predict yesterday In an article in the Washington Post quoting Dr. Fauci on computer models, he said:

Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told others there are too many variables at play in the pandemic to make the models reliable: “I’ve looked at all the models. I’ve spent a lot of time on the models. They don’t tell you anything. You can’t really rely upon models.”

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?

Who elected Dr.Fauci Preident? Fauci keeps moving the goalposts. First COVID was not a threat. Then it was. We didn’t need masks he told us. Then we did. This boy well-considered advice from a medical expert. This is Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown. Now he tells us we have to wait for a vaccine for his permission to educate our children and worship our God or visit our doctor?

Home of the brave and land of the free? Thanks to Dr.Fauci, not anymore as we empty our jails so we have room for nail and hair salon owners wanting to feed their children. Fauci warns of needless suffering and death from a premature reopening of the economy he shut down. We are already miserable and dying.

We are dying from conditions not being treated or monitored or even diagnosed because the hospitals and doctors are under restrictive rules, limited to so-called essential treatments and services. We are dying from the suddenly discovered pandemic exception clause to the Constitution which suspended our rights to peacefully assemble, to practice our religion, to keep and bear arms, and even to speak freely.

We are dying Dr. Fauci and not just from the Chinese Wuhan virus whose origin was the labs your agency funded. We are dying from suicide and depression and hopelessness in an atrophied economy your order that placed America under house arrest created. We are dying from vanished nest eggs, retirement plans, and dreams. We are dying from jobs that will never come back and businesses that will never reopen.

We are dying in an economy whose upward curve your advice has flattened. You have destroyed the American dream almost single-handedly and done what no foreign adversary ever could – bring America to its knees.

Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul rightly took Dr. Fauci apart for his apocalyptic Senate testimony:

“If we keep kids out of school for another year, what’s going to happen is the poor and underprivileged kids who don’t have a parent that’s able to teach them at home are not going to learn for a full year,” Paul said.

Paul rebuked Fauci, saying: “I don’t think you’re the end-all. I don’t think you’re the one person who gets to make a decision. We can listen to your advice, but there are people on the other side saying there’s not going to be a surge and that we can safely open the economy.”

I don’t think he’s the end-all either. To Dr. Fauci, the U.S. is one big clinical trial and we are lab rats in his experiment. As America dies from bureaucratic asphyxiation, it’s time we got a second opinion. Dr. Fauci has proven himself to be a consistent fraud and liar.

Has China’s Military Deeply Infiltrated U.S. Medical Research?

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

It is a widely accepted fact that China has stolen U.S. intellectual property worth billions of dollars.

The U.S. government recently ordered the closure of the Chinese consulate in Houston, Texas, which Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) described as a “central node of the Communist Party’s vast network of spies & influence operations in the United States.”

At virtually the same time, the U.S. Department of Justice indicted two Chinese nationals for seeking to steal COVID-19 vaccine research and hacking hundreds of companies in the United States and abroad, including defense contractors.

Now, Juan Tang, 37, who had been a visiting cancer researcher at the University of California, Davis, School of Medicine for several months, has been arrested by the FBI  after hiding in the Chinese consulate in San Francisco.

She is one of four Chinese researchers charged by federal authorities in recent days with lying about their background to gain entrance into the United States.

A federal criminal complaint filed in court in Sacramento charges Juan Tang with lying about her connections to the Chinese military when she applied for a nonimmigrant visa on Oct. 28, 2019.

The FBI criminal complaint shows Juan Tang in Chinese military uniforms and her scientific affiliations are listed as the National Translational Science Center for Molecular Medicine & Department of Cell Biology, The Fourth Military Medical University, Xi’an 710032, China.

According to Andy Fell, a spokesman for the University of California, Davis, Juan Tang was a visiting researcher in the School of Medicine’s Department of Radiation Oncology. Her research was funded by the Chinese Scholarship Council, “a study-based exchange program affiliated with China’s Ministry of Education and Xijing Hospital in China.”

Yes, but why the University of California, Davis?

It may be because Jian-Jian Li, who received his M.D. degree in 1984 from China’s Fourth Military Medical University in Xi’an, is a professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine and, like Juan Tang’s position in China’s National Translational Science Center for Molecular Medicine, Dr. Li is Director of Translational Research at the University of California, Davis.

Dr. Li received a Ph.D. in 1994 from the Department of Radiation and Free Radical Biology, University of Iowa, and was trained at the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health from 1995 to 1998.

Over many years, Dr. Li has maintained extensive collaboration with scientists in China, some of whom work at the Fourth Military Medical University.

It seems highly unlikely that Dr. Li did not know of Juan Tang’s affiliation with China’s Fourth Military Medical University.

The arrests of the four Chinese nationals mentioned in this article represent only a tiny proportion of the Chinese students, postdoctoral researchers and full-time medical scientists, many of whom are supported by U.S. taxpayer dollars, and may be actively assisting China’s military to obtain U.S. secrets and proprietary information, medical research being the softest of the soft espionage targets.

The time is long past for a comprehensive investigation of the medical research exchange programs between the U.S. and China.

Breaking: Florida Governor Ron Desantis Calling For Investigation Into Claims People Are Testing ‘POSITIVE’ For Corona Virus Who Never Got Tested

By: Renee Nal | RAIR Foundation USA

UPDATE: Twitter User who discovered Florida clinics were reporting 100% Positive coronavirus results is no longer on Twitter. See archived Tweet here.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is calling for an investigation into numerous claims that people who did not receive the test for the coronavirus are being informed that they tested positive. “I’ve heard it enough to be concerned about it,” DeSantis told local Fox affiliate’s Robert Guaderrama.

People have been raising the alarm on social media for several days that for whatever reason, they did not take the test as scheduled and yet were informed that they tested positive. Many of these cases involved people leaving long lines with the intent to get tested at another time. It also begs the question of whether all of the people who test positive for the coronavirus are actually positive.

COVID-19: Scientific Disinformation is, Quite Literally, Killing Us

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

For the sake of global health and the development of effective treatments, we need to end the political pretense that the coronavirus pandemic was a naturally-occurring outbreak and ascertain its true origin.

For many, the thought of a highly infectious and deadly man-made virus being released from a laboratory is too psychologically horrible to contemplate — not to mention its catastrophic political and economic ramifications.

Nevertheless, the issue is no less than one potentially affecting the survival of mankind, if not honestly addressed.

Until now, objective scientific inquiry has been hampered by China’s refusal to fully disclose the information it possesses. In addition, Beijing has conducted a politically-motivated scientific disinformation campaign to avoid responsibility — one facilitated by some Western scientists with a vested interest in the outcome and by an uninformed and servile media.

That includes, ostensibly, censorship by scientific and medical journals, conducted under the guise of editorial discretion — a policy which seems to favor, overwhelmingly, the Chinese Communist Party’s narrative that the pandemic is just another naturally-occurring transmission from animals to humans.

In a new scientific study, “The Evidence which Suggests that This Is No Naturally Evolved Virus,” the authors explain, that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, possesses structural and biochemical features not present in other coronaviruses.

“The properties that we now see in the virus, we have yet to discover anywhere in nature. We know that these properties make the virus very infectious, so if it came from nature, there should also be many animals infected with this, but we have still not been able to trace the virus in nature.”

The authors identify several unique features of SARS-CoV-2 that strengthen the case for purposeful manipulation in the laboratory.

SARS-CoV-2 has six unique amino acid insertions that create a dual binding and cell entry system that could explain the observed multiple clinical effects. They compromise the functions of olfaction and bitter/sweet receptors, blood cells, immune response, nerve cells, and various tissues, such as the cells lining the intestines.

The spike protein, responsible for viral binding and cell entry, also appears “pre-adapted” for human infection, which is even present in the first COVID-19 patients. This indicates that SARS-CoV-2 did not undergo the human adaptation process normally seen in animal to human transmissions.

Artificial modifications, such as those described, could present serious obstacles to producing effective and safe vaccines.

The authors further elaborate on how, where, when, and by whom SARS-CoV-2 may have evolved through experiments in laboratories.

The authors identify specific scientific publications by Chinese and American researchers, in which they demonstrate and discuss how coronaviruses have been genetically manipulated to produce new viral entities that are potentially more infectious and deadly for humans.

Given all the available data, the likelihood that SARS-CoV-2’s structure and properties are the result of a natural evolutionary process is very small.

Those who support China’s narrative, therefore, need to account for the unnatural characteristics of SARS-CoV-2 and provide more convincing evidence before demanding acceptance of the yet unproven theory of natural occurrence.

Retribution against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) – The Last of this Series

By: Retired General Paul Vallely | CCNS

Operation Nemesis 13.0

Retribution against the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)

Plan XIII.  No Compromise for the Wicked CCP


– Reflections upon the Pandemic Outbreak in Brazil

“(This pandemic) is selectively targeting the CCP and is aimed at eliminating the CCP and those who are pro-communist or who have close ties with the CCP… If one upholds one’s inner goodness, reflects on one’s actions, and rejects the CCP—the representative of the greatest evil, one will be protected by the divine.  The pandemic occurred because of the CCP, and the situation will change when people change their attitudes toward the CCP.

– From “Where Ties to the Chinese Communist Party are Close, the CCP Virus Follows“, editorial by the Epoch Times

On July 11, the CCP media rushed to report “President Trump Wearing a Mask” as the headline news.  The CCP media gloated that the Brazilian President, an American ally, is infected.  Then the CCP posed an insidious question that “Tropical Trump” is infected and will President Trump be the next?

Being atheists in nature, the communists label all religions as “superstitions” or a “spiritual opioid.” Hence, the communists cannot possibly comprehend why President Trump is the chosen one by God and protected by God. The communists are also clueless about why so many people around the world are praying for President Trump. As the fierce battle between the good and evil proceeds, more and more people realize not only President Trump is the hope for the United States, he is also the hope for the entire world.

Brazil is hit hard in this pandemic due to its close tie with the CCP. An in-depth analysis on this subject was published on the Chinese Epoch Times.  Brazil is only one of many countries that bent over to the CCP in this pandemic. Brazil’s case shows how the CCP has exploited the pandemic to distance countries from the United States.

Another Boris Johnson?

On July 7, Brazilian President Bolsonaro was tested positive for the CCP virus (also called Coronavirus).  Bolsonaro is the second national head infected by the virus after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson.  Before Johnson was hit by the virus, he dodged warnings from America and insisted on using Huawei’s components in the British 5G network. Fortunately, the repressive measure of Hong Kong National Security Bill awakened Johnson in time.  Recently, Johnson’s stance on Huawei hardened, and consequently, he has recovered as the overall pandemic situation in Britain improved.  Will Bolsonaro be another Johnson?

Alliance with America

Since 2009, China has replaced the United States as Brazil’s largest trading partner. At about the same time, CCP’s Multinational Corporations poured into Brazil, dominating the energy and telecom sectors. China is now the largest buyer of Brazilian soybeans, iron ore, beef, and other unprocessed goods.  In 2019, China imported $63 billion worth of goods from Brazil, accounting for 28% of total Brazilian exports while the United States ranked second at $30 billion which is 13% of total Brazilian exports.  Brazil is CCP’s major target in Latin America. Very quietly Brazil has been infiltrated by the CCP since 1974 as the two countries formed diplomatic relations.

In October 2018, during the Presidential campaign, Bolsonaro boldly criticized the CCP for buying so much in Brazil.  His critics made headline news and that earned him the Presidency.  Many enthusiastically expected that “Tropical Trump” would effectively establish a close relationship with the United States and break away from the CCP.

Since taking office, Bolsonaro has tried forming a stronger alliance with the United States.  In August 2019, Bolsonaro sent his son, Brazilian Foreign Minister Eduardo Bolsonaro, to meet with President Trump during the Amazon fire crisis. This past March, Bolsonaro and his son also met with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago.  In June, Bolsonaro followed the lead of the United States by warning the WHO of a possible withdrawal from the organization.

Brazil’s Intensified Trade with CCP

Bolsonaro has also attempted to intensify the trade with the CCP. In October 2019, Bolsonaro visited China for the first time after taking office. During the visit, he and Xi issued a “Joint Statement” to continue strengthening the relationship. The two national heads signed 10 memos covering a variety of areas, including education, mine, energy, agriculture, telecom, and tourism.  Later, Bolsonaro told the media that Brazil is willing to sell soybeans, meat, oil, and iron ore to the CCP.  On November 13, after meeting with Xi, Bolsonaro claimed at a press conference that “China is increasingly close to Brazil’s future.”

CCP’s Retaliation

On March 18th, Eduardo Bolsonaro, Brazilian foreign minister, the son of the Brazilian President tweeted that the CCP government had concealed the truth on the epidemic.  Eduardo pointed out, “this is the fault of China (the Chinese government), and freedom is the only way out.” Soon after Edward tweeted, Yang Wanming, CCP’s ambassador to Brazil fiercely reputed.  Within 2 days, the CCP made a series of retaliation. On March 19, the CCP issued a “Solemn Statement”, which reads:

“Eduard’s anti-China speech is very inappropriate and will harm the friendship between China and Brazil.  We strongly condemn your tweet, request you to withdraw it, and apologize to the Chinese people…”

Our embassy tweeted: ‘Your remarks are not unfamiliar; you are just learning how to speak from your friends. You recently went to Miami and brought back the spiritual viruswhich poisoned the friendship between Chinese and Brazilian people. You lack basic common sense and an international perspective. You are ignorant of China, ignorance of the world, and ignorance of history. We urge you not to compete for the position of the American spokesperson in Brazil, otherwise, you will lose miserably.’

Brazil’s Compromise

According to the Chinese embassy in Brazil, tweets from the embassy quickly received 100,000 views. Major Brazilian media reported this! Brazil’s House Speaker Rodrigo Maia immediately wrote on social media: “On behalf of the Brazilian House of Representatives, I apologize to the Chinese government and Ambassador Yang for the inappropriate remarks that Congressman Eduardo made”. The embassy also reported receiving many phone calls and emails supporting the CCP’s position.

On May 4, 2020, data released by the Brazilian Ministry of Economy showed that in April, Brazil’s foreign trade surplus with China reached US$6.702 billion, an increase of 18.5% from the previous. Meanwhile, the pandemic also gravely worsened in Brazil.

Brazil’s Tragic Loss in Pandemic

On February 26, 2020, the first CCP virus case emerged in Brazil, which was also the first case in Latin America. By July 12, there are over 1.8 million confirmed cases with a death toll of 72,000 in Brazil.  Now Brazil is one of the countries hit the hardest in this pandemic. Why CCP’s “effective measures for containing pandemic” did not seem to work in Brazil at all? Can the profits from CCP’s orders offset the impact of the CCP virus on Brazil’s economy? How about the damage to the health and lives of millions of Brazilian people?

Bolsonaro did not follow his promise made during his campaign and instead, he has sought a middle ground between the United States and the CCP.

The Way Out

During this pandemic, the CCP enjoys playing the role of “The Savior of the World” by luring countries like Brazil with much-needed medical supplies. The CCP’s goal is to further isolate these countries from the United States and make it one step closer to achieving its global domination.      For the well-being of people and for the future of countries, it is time for countries like Brazil to be awakened to the evil nature of the CCP. They must face reality and divorce the CCP demon.

” To defeat the CCP, simply depending on ordinary secular means will never be enough. The communist specter has greater power than humans, and this is the underlying cause of the CCP’s continuous expansion. However, evil can never rival the divine. If humans can stand by the divine and abide by divine will, they will be blessed and overcome the specter’s infernal arrangements.

The CCP is the enemy of all humanity, having established the bloodiest yet most powerful tyranny history has ever seen. All nations and peoples must resist its global ambitions if they are to secure their future and that of all civilization. The evil CCP is destined for elimination; thus, to reject the CCP is to avoid sharing in its fate.”

Russian ‘Dukes’ Overtly Hack Vaccine Trial Data

By: Denise Simon | Founders Code

Primer: Will this cause an Article 5 response?

In response to malicious activity targeting COVID-19 research and vaccine development in the United States, the United Kingdom (UK), and Canada, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), Canada’s Communications Security Establishment (CSE), and the National Security Agency (NSA) released a Joint Cybersecurity Advisory to expose the threat. A malicious cyber actor is using a variety of tools and techniques to target organizations involved in COVID-19 research and vaccine development.

Tools include SOREFANGWELLMESS, and WELLMAIL malware.

CISA encourages users and administrators to review the Joint Cybersecurity Advisory and the following Malware Analysis Reports for more information and to apply the mitigations provided.

LONDON (AP) — Britain, the United States, and Canada accused Russia on Thursday of trying to steal information from researchers seeking a COVID-19 vaccine.

The three nations alleged that hacking group APT29, also known as Cozy Bear and said to be part of the Russian intelligence service, is attacking academic and pharmaceutical research institutions involved in coronavirus vaccine development.

UK, US, Canada accuse Russia of hacking virus vaccine ...

Britain’s National Cybersecurity Centre made the announcement, which was coordinated with authorities in the U.S. and Canada.

“It is completely unacceptable that the Russian Intelligence Services are targeting those working to combat the coronavirus pandemic,″ Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said in a statement. “While others pursue their selfish interests with reckless behavior, the U.K. and its allies are getting on with the hard work of finding a vaccine and protecting global health.″

The persistent and ongoing attacks are seen by intelligence officials as an effort to steal intellectual property, rather than to disrupt research. The campaign of “malicious activity″ is ongoing and includes attacks “predominantly against government, diplomatic, think-tank, healthcare, and energy targets,″ the National Cybersecurity Centre said in a statement.

It was unclear whether any information actually was stolen but the center says individuals’ confidential information is not believed to have been compromised. The Russian Foreign Ministry did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cozy Bear, also known as the “dukes,″ has been identified by Washington as one of two Russian government-linked hacking groups that broke into the Democratic National Committee computer network and stole emails ahead of the 2016 presidential election. The other group is usually called Fancy Bear.

The director of operations for the British cybersecurity center, Paul Chichester, urged “organizations to familiarize themselves with the advice we have published to help defend their networks.”

The statement did not say whether Russian President Vladimir Putin knew about the vaccine research hacking, but British officials believe such intelligence would be highly prized.

A 16-page advisory made public by Britain, the U.S. and Canada on Thursday accuses Cozy Bear of using custom malicious software to target a number of organizations globally. The malware, called WellMess and WellMail, has not previously been associated with the hacking group, the advisory said.

“In recent attacks targeting COVID-19 vaccine research and development, the group conducted basic vulnerability scanning against specific external IP addresses owned by the organizations. The group then deployed public exploits against the vulnerable services identified,” the advisory said.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s cybersecurity agency warned in April that cybercriminals and other groups were targeting COVID-19 research, noting at the time that the increase in people teleworking because of the pandemic had created potential avenues for hackers to exploit.

Vulnerable targets include health care agencies, pharmaceutical companies, academia, medical research organizations, and local governments, security officials have said.

The global reach and international supply chains of these organizations also make them vulnerable, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency said in an alert published in conjunction with its counterparts in Britain.

CISA said it and the British cybersecurity agency have detected the threat groups scanning the external websites of targeted companies and looking for vulnerabilities in unpatched software. It did not name any of the targeted companies.

U.S. authorities have for months leveled similar accusations against China. FBI Director Chris Wray said last week, “At this very moment, China is working to compromise American health care organizations, pharmaceutical companies, and academic institutions conducting essential COVID-19 research.”
