  • What does China want the narrative to be? The ideal outcome would be that the virus originated outside of China. Failing that, an acceptable outcome would be, as highlighted in a recent Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article, that the virus “that killed millions of people and shattered the global economy” would be “among the world’s most consequential mysteries.”
  • There is one outcome that would be unacceptable to the CCP: China will do almost anything to keep the U.S. from concluding that the virus was developed in the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The CCP is already taking steps to encourage the U.S. to reach “the right” judgment, and it appears to have people in the West, including in the U.S., who are willingly supporting those efforts.
  • The Lancet has again come out with an unjustified dismissal of the lab leak theory, couched in support for the G7’s call for a new COVID origins study, led by the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Nothing could be better for China than having The Lancet as the messenger, lending scientific credibility to what the CCP wants the world to believe.
  • The July 5 publication of the letter in The Lancet is a strong signal that the CCP has launched an active disinformation campaign. The CCP will continue to spare no effort in ensuring that the COVID-19 virus appears to have originated somewhere other than China….

On May 26, 2021, President Joe Biden announced that he had asked the U.S. intelligence community to redouble its efforts to determine the origins of the COVID-19 virus. The U.S. findings are expected in about 90 days. So now we know what the Biden administration is doing, but what will the Chinese government, or the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), do? In light of China’s obfuscation so far, it is absurd to imagine that it will be cooperating with the U.S. investigation. Neither will it be sitting idly by waiting to learn of the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusions. Instead, the CCP will be doing everything it can to shape the report and ensure that the findings will be released in a context saturated by Chinese propaganda.

What does China want the narrative to be? The ideal outcome would be that the virus originated outside of China. Failing that, an acceptable outcome would be, as highlighted in a recent Wall Street Journal (WSJ) article, that the virus “that killed millions of people and shattered the global economy” would be “among the world’s most consequential mysteries.”

Larry Klayman’s “Common Sense” Agenda

By: Cliff Kincaid

In an interview on November 11, just about a week after the election, Larry Klayman appeared on my television show to argue that Trump had a dead-end election fraud legal strategy. He didn’t have much confidence in Trump’s legal advisers.

Then, on November 24, 2020, Larry Klayman was on my show again, reiterating that Trump couldn’t and wouldn’t win.

The founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, Klayman understands that the federal courts are corrupt and were unlikely to rule in Trump’s favor. He said that Trump, despite proclamations about vote fraud and his own victory, would exit the White House because the federal courts, including the Supreme Court, wouldn’t intervene.

Of the many guests I interviewed about election integrity, Larry Klayman was the only one who predicted that Trump would ultimately be forced from the White House and that China Joe Biden would be installed.

Not learning their lesson, we find some Trump supporters today saying that the former president will be back in the oval office by August.

Meanwhile, Russia, China, Iran, and other enemies of the United States continue to wage war on America and our allies, as our southern border continues to decay and the China virus continues to kill.

It was Klayman who did what the U.S. Government should have done. Early in the pandemic, he filed a complaint in federal court seeking to hold China legally responsible for the China virus and its source, the biological weapons program based at the notorious federally-funded Wuhan lab.

Virtually everything Klayman documented in his complaint has been reluctantly and subsequently verified by other so-called “experts.”

China’s Biowarfare Program Involved in the Origin of COVID-19 Is Linked to Its Military Yet It Accesses Knowledge, Skills and Funding from the US

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) and Anna Chen | CCNS

China’s biowarfare program has three levels.

There is a core secret military level consisting of military research centers and hospitals.

The core layer is supervised by the Academy of Military Medical Sciences in coordination with so-called “civilian” entities such as the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and the Chinese Centers for Disease Control.

Layered on top of the core level are China’s universities, civilian research institutions, and medical companies.

Everyone should understand that, in China, there is no difference between military and civilian research.

The fusion of those research and development sectors was mandated by the 2016 Chinese Communist Party’s Thirteenth Five-Year Plan.

It is that middle layer, which has allowed China to access international knowledge, skills, and funding, particularly from the United States, all of which have contributed to the advancement of China’s virus research, including bioweapons development.

In an April 20, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, we highlighted the important contributions of veterinary and agricultural scientists to China’s biowarfare program.

Here we document connections within that core military level, how it links to the middle layer of Chinese universities and research institutes and how that middle layer establishes research collaboration with U.S.-based scientists to access U.S. knowledge, skills, and research funding, which has benefitted China’s biowarfare program.

As stated in our May 14, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, the Military Veterinary Research Institute and the Institute of Zoonotic Diseases in Changchun, Jilin Province, China, led by People’s Liberation Army General Ningyi Jin and retired General Xianzhu Xia, are core military elements of China’s biowarfare program.

The Military Veterinary Research Institute and the Institute of Zoonotic Diseases in Changchun directly coordinate with the Academy of Military Medical Sciences in Beijing. It acts as a clearinghouse and a manager of military-related activities in China’s universities and civilian research centers. It has also led a virus-collection program as well as conducting its own research, especially in regard to mammalian and non-human primate experiments on viruses and vaccines.

As described in our May 18, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, at least four subordinates of Xianzhu Xia and Ningyi Jin have been engaged in a massive domestic and international virus collection effort for over eight years, namely, Biao He, Quanshui Fan, Changchun Tu, and Zhiqiang Wu.

Biao He, together with Changjun Wang of the People’s Liberation Army Eastern Theater Command in Nanjing, played key roles in the isolation of bat coronaviruses ZC45 and ZXC21, claimed by Chinese whistleblower Dr. Li-Meng Yan to be the viral backbones for COVID-19.

We believe that the Military Veterinary Research Institute and the Institute of Zoonotic Diseases in Changchun were deeply involved in the research that led to the creation of the COVID-19 virus.

Is Wuhan University’s Animal Laboratory the Origin of the COVID-19 Pandemic?

By Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) | CCNS

The COVID-19 virus was made in a laboratory in China and was part of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army’s (PLA) biological warfare program.

That much is clear. The matter yet to be resolved is the manner of its release, whether accidental or deliberate.

There is growing evidence of a laboratory accident occurring in November 2019.

Although lacking confirmation, there remain persistent rumors of a deliberate release of the COVID-19 virus by the PLA, one scenario being at the 7th CISM Military World Games held in Wuhan from October 18–27, 2019.

In my May 20, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, I cited a source inside China claiming:

  1. A fully-formed or nearly fully-formed COVID-19 virus arrived at the Wuhan Institute of Virology from the Chinese People’s Liberation Army Eastern Theater Command in the early months of 2019.
  2. Contrary to the popular narrative, the COVID-19 virus was sent to the Wuhan Institute of Virology primarily for testing.
  3. The testing was assigned to a group of young virologists. The name of the leader of that group is known and the leader’s scientific background is consistent with that role.
  4. Testing was done on non-human primates.

There are two important points to remember regarding that information.

First, the PLA Eastern Theater Command, whose headquarters is in Nanjing, is the same entity, which isolated ZC45 and ZXC21, the bat coronaviruses Chinese whistleblower Dr. Li-Meng Yang says provided the backbone for the laboratory manufacture of the COVID-19 virus.

China has Infiltrated the U.S. Military Biodefense Program at Fort Detrick

By: Col. Lawrence Sellin (Ret.) and Anna Chen | CCNS

The shocking story of how China has infiltrated the U.S. military biodefense program at Fort Detrick.

Chunying Hua, spokeswoman for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, has promoted the conspiracy theory that Fort Detrick is the origin of the COVID-19 virus.

Although such a claim is patently ridiculous, there may be a kernel of truth in it, given how much knowledge and skills may have been obtained by Chinese scientists working in Fort Detrick’s virus laboratories.

Make no mistake, the Chinese military is clearly “inside the wire.”

It is important to recognize the fact that, in China, there is no distinction between civilian and military research.

Although unofficial before then, the Chinese Communist Party declared the fusion of civilian and military research as an official goal in its 2016 Thirteenth Five-Year Plan.

It is also a fact that, more often than not, scientists born and trained in the People’s Republic of China (PRC), even after becoming U.S. citizens, never completely sever links with their home universities and research institutions, many of which are connected to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

The U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) at Fort Detrick has long been an espionage target of the PLA.

The PLA’s pathway to that target has been through the Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research, which is inside Fort Detrick, only a few minute’s walk from USAMRIID.

Chinese military scientist suspected of involvement in COVID-19 creation elected to American Academy of Microbiology

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

Adding global insult to injury, in February 2021, Shibo Jiang was elected to the American Academy of Microbiology.

Shibo Jiang, now Professor and Director, Institute of Medical Microbiology at China’s Fudan University in Shanghai, obtained his MS and MD degrees from the First and the Fourth Medical University of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA).

Between 1987 and 1990, he received his postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University in New York, largely through HIV AIDS funding provided by Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

For nearly twenty years afterward, Shibo Jiang worked in or has been associated with the Lindsley F. Kimball Research Institute of the New York Blood Center.

He developed an extensive network of collaborative research with other major U.S. virus research laboratories and received more than $17 million in U.S. research grants, the vast majority coming from Fauci’s NIAID.

During that entire period, Shibo Jiang maintained extensive collaborative research with PLA laboratories, described in detail here, while simultaneously inviting into his U.S. laboratory and training scientists linked to the Chinese military.

After the onset of the November 2002 SARS pandemic originating in Foshan, Guangdong, China, the PLA, and Shibo Jiang would play an outsized role in human coronavirus research.

Where Were Facebook Fact Checkers For Feckless Fraudulent Fauci?

By: Daniel John Sobieski

If Inspector Clouseau and Dr. Joseph Mengele had a love child, it would be Dr. Anthony (“I am science, hear me roar”) Fauci, who fumbled his way through a pandemic he helped create and whose misleading, self-serving, and contradictory pronouncements between baseball games, magazine photo-shoots, and talk show appearances contributed to the deaths of millions. Leading the pack of Fauci’s unindicted co-conspirators is Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook.

Facts, as Ronald Reagan would say, are stubborn things. They do not change. So when Facebook went from banning and nuking posts and posters asserting that the China virus escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology to allowing posts considering the possibility after Fauci’s incriminating emails exposed his lies, Facebook acknowledged several things. First, the information it proclaimed “false” was in fact not false, not even ‘partly’ and, that its fact-checkers were wrong.  Second, as heavily redacted emails between Fauci and Zuckerberg hint at, the two were in cahoots to actually suppress the truth in support of a false narrative that would not embarrass Fauci or China.

If you don’t know all the facts, how can check them? The deletion of posts and the banning of context attempting to break through Chinese secrecy and cover-up amounts to a lot of “missing context,” doesn’t it? Facebook would provide links to that Chinese sock puppet, the WHO, but never fact-checked any of Fauci’s contradictions and outright fabrications. This suggests collusion between Fauci and Zuckerberg. Fauci should have been banned from Facebook for his falsehoods, not President Donald J. Trump.

The emails show that Fauci has lied about masks and virtually everything else. He was an early advocate of so-called “gain-of-function” research, saying that engineering a virus that could kill millions was “worth the risk.” When such research was banned in the U.S., he broke the law to have his NIAID fund Wuhan through a third party- Eco-Health Alliance. His song-and-dance confrontations with Sen. Rand Paul demonstrated what a criminal con artist egomaniac Dr. Fauci is. Dr. Seuss would have given more accurate and truthful answers.

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 pronouncements 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.
