“Those who forget history are condemned to repeat it” – George Santayana.
While people got caught up in the supposed Russian military coup, the US Director of National Intelligence finally released, albeit several days late, a declassified 10-page report regarding the Covid Origin.
Their assessments – keep in mind – are rife with tries (truth mixed with lies). Nonetheless, here are the broad strokes:
- Several agencies assessed that the initial human infection with SARS-CoV-2 most likely was caused by natural exposure to an infected animal.
- The Federal Bureau of Investigation assessed that a laboratory-associated incident was the most likely cause of the first human infection with SARS-CoV-2.
- All IC agencies assessed that SARS-CoV-2 was not developed as a biological weapon.
- The CIA and “another agency” remain unable to determine the precise origin of COVID-19
“It’s a game of line stepping – with classic Hegelian justification,” someone wrote on Twitter.
In response to the report, someone else tweeted, “More gaslighting from the Biden Agency.”
The Biden administration had committed to declassifying intelligence related to the origins of COVID-19 consistent with bipartisan legislation signed earlier this year. They were three days late and ultimately this report only creates more confusion, prompting virologists and government officials to conclude that we will likely never know the full picture.
The intelligence community has all these tools at its fingertips and yet it still cannot determine the outcome or the origins.
What does it say when ‘intelligence’ agencies don’t agree with one another and don’t seem to be very intelligent and/or truthful? The result is a ‘muddying of the waters’ while giving the masses the impression that advancements are being made in this investigation.
But many of us know that they don’t want us to know the truth. It’s more ridiculous obfuscation. They lie, we know it, and they know it and yet they still lie. The intelligence agencies have lost all credibility. Moreover, there wasn’t really any declassified information released.
Sweet Little Lies
Decades of American history have been forgotten, and surreptitiously obscured. The origins of C19 will be no different. The question is who is going to keep track of the absolute truth?
The 10-page report follows a US Senate 300-page report ironically titled Muddy Waters, The Covid-19 Origins Report. Yet hardly anyone read or covered this massive document. I myself am only on page 88. Meanwhile, the flimsy report doesn’t seem to have any classified information as promised.
The ‘intelligence’ agencies may hint otherwise but evidence points that:
- This is a synthetic “virus” that was created in a lab.
- Fauci funded WIV-related research.
- The media whores are still lying about the origins three and a half years later.
Currently, the scientific community is divided over the possibility that the virus emerged from a lab leak or was transmitted to humans from an infected animal. Meanwhile, the three-letter agencies also still continue to consider the possibility that this was a natural spillover.
It’s quite fantastical that anyone can still cling to an animal origin theory and consider a “natural” spillover at the Hunan wet market over a laboratory-associated hypothesis to explain the first human infection.
Remember the pangolins and the raccoon dogs – well despite the intelligence agencies, they’re running up against Occam’s razor.
Some of those who still believe in the wet market theory estimate that the contentious ‘furin cleavage’ site was mostly picked up in the intermediary host between bats and humans.
I’d recommend they watch the film Contagion. I believe the script was slapped against the world. Below is an excerpt. A lab origin was a possibility from Day 1.U.S.-Funded Scientist Among Three Chinese Researchers Who Fell Ill Amid Early Covid-19 Outbreak
For those of us who have been covering virus hunters and their playbook, Patient Zero is always a fuzzy story whether it’s Ebola or SARS. But somehow they claim they now know the first infected human. Sort of.
Days before the flimsy IC report was released, The Wall Street Journal announced that three WIV researchers got sick a few months leading to the Wuhan outbreak. Scientist Ben Hu, who has worked extensively on gain-of-function research funded by grants from the U.S. federal government, was identified. Along with Yu Ping, a Chinese scientist who wrote a 2019 thesis on SARS-related coronaviruses found in bats; and another scientist named Yan Zhu. The Wuhan Institute of Virology is China’s only bio-safety level four (BSL-4) facility.
None of these researchers died.
What happened to supposed patient zero 55-year-old from Hubei province (Wuhan is its capital), who contracted the “virus” on November 17, 2019? That was apparently the earliest confirmed case of COVID-19. He resided near WIV and also the China CDC. This ‘patient zero’ died.
Or how about when “Vision Medicals” sequenced a sample from a 65-a-year-old deliveryman who worked at the Wuhan Huanan Seafood Market and was admitted to the Central Hospital of Wuhan on December 18, 2019, with pneumonia? This ‘patient zero’ died.
And according to The Daily Mail, there were also early reports in April 2020 that there was a female intern at the Wuhan lab who spread the virus to her boyfriend and or the local population after leaving work.
Is anyone keeping track of all these patient zeros?
The three WIV scientists, according to the IC report, conducted experiments done at inappropriately low biosafety settings that could have resulted in a laboratory infection. Yet the intelligence community maintained their symptoms were consistent with but not diagnostic of COVID-19 (loss of smell/taste & pneumonia w/ ground glass opacities)
“While several WIV researchers fell mildly ill in Fall 2019, they:
experienced a range of symptoms consistent with colds or allergies with accompanying symptoms typically not associated with COVID-19, and some of them were confirmed to have been sick with other illnesses unrelated to COVID-19.…. One researcher may have been hospitalized in this timeframe for treatment of a non-respiratory medical condition.”
As a result, the IC continues to assess that this information neither supports nor refutes either hypothesis of the pandemic’s origins because the researchers’ symptoms could have been caused by a number of diseases and some of the symptoms were not consistent with COVID-19.”
Oh, what an irony given that under the initial days of the Rona Regime, every sniffle and cough was classified as Covid19. But now in this instance, it could have been anything. The utter gall!
It was also noted that while some of these scientists had historically conducted research into animal respiratory viruses, no one was able to confirm or refute if any of them handled live viruses in the work they performed prior to falling ill.
They added that consistent with standard practices, those researchers likely completed annual health exams as part of their duties in a high-containment biosafety laboratory. The IC assessed that the WIV maintains blood samples and health records of all of their laboratory personnel—which are standard procedures in high-containment laboratories.
Allegedly, China’s National Security Commission investigated the WIV in early 2020 and took blood samples from WIV researchers. According to the World Health Organization’s March 2021 public report, WIV officials including Shi Zhengli (Bat Woman) —who leads the WIV laboratory group that conducts coronavirus research—stated lab employee samples all tested negative for SARS-CoV-2 antibodies.
For the record, the “test” used was reportedly a “species-independent test” that was “verified” only on rabbits, cats, and dogs, without a positive control from humans. Shi’s serological test does not work well on human sera, it was stated.
Assuming Hu and his colleagues did contract the earliest cases of COVID-19, the implications are fairly earth-shattering.
This alone would lend to a lab leak. No?
Stay Tuned for Part Two…
