Many of you may remember that I produced a lecture at Contact in the Desert called, Clade X.  I also did a broadcast where I had concerns about a simulant tabletop exercise where authorities were running a drill that included the accidental release of a pathogen that I concluded would either be an alien pathogen or a genetically sequenced pathogen.

After the broadcast, I did more research into the tabletop pandemic exercise at John’s Hopkins University and found out that the virus that was discussed was called Nipah.  In the tabletop exercise, fictional extremists smuggled the disease from an unknown rogue lab and released it as a biological attack.

It killed 150 million people.  Later, a blue-ribbon panel gathered to do their own fictional release drill where Nipah would be dispersed from a rogue lab killing only 6000 Americans.

In the tabletop scenario, 150 million people died within one year, 15 million of them in the United States, where a constitutional crisis unfolded: both the president and vice president fell ill, leaving the Speaker of the House as acting president, and one-third of the members serving in Congress died following the failure of the first vaccine introduced during the tabletop exercise.

It was a biological warfare event – no one was prepared and it was difficult to pinpoint just who released the virus.

The final report on this exercise was that the lack of both a protective vaccine and a proactive worldwide plan for tackling the spread of a catastrophic global pandemic resulted in the death of millions.

This was one of many exercises that have been carried out. Dark Winter, held in 2001, focused on the potential terrorist use of smallpox as a biological weapon and the Atlantic Storm exercise in 2005 again highlighted smallpox, but this time focused on its intentional global use as a bioweapon.

This is the first exercise that has used an unnamed organism that generated more mutated organisms and multiplies like an alien contagion source.

In every tabletop exercise the release of these mutant pathogens are the result of some terrorist biological attack.

There is this underlying concern that has been talked about off and on with regard to a major viral outbreak that could be the result of an accidental release or an intentional release that is meant to wipe out an enemy quietly and without much fanfare.

We need to understand that viruses evolve and with the help of science and the development of warfare agents we can see a contagion force multiply and be kept under glass until for some reason, it is released as a sure-fire way to eliminate an enemy or to cull the herd.

Last week, we reported that the Coronovirus had all of the earmarks of a disease known only as Disease X—a disease that was mentioned by Bill Gates last year that he claimed had the potential of killing 30 million people within 6 months.

Gates presented a simulation by the Institute for Disease Modeling that found that a new flu-like respiratory illness similar to the one that killed 50 million people in the 1918 pandemic would now most likely kill 30 million people within six months.

He stated that the disease will take us by surprise and it would be likely to be one that we see for the first time—a strange and unknown virus that will stump health officials at the start of an outbreak.

He also expressed concerns that it could be released as a biological attack that would silently and stealthily kill millions.

The history of biological warfare is nearly as old as the history of warfare itself. In ancient times, warring parties poisoned wells or used arrowheads with natural toxins. Mongol invaders catapulted plague victims into besieged cities, probably causing the first great plague epidemic in Europe, and British settlers distributed smallpox-infected blankets to Native Americans.

However, more and more we are learning that secretly, there are genetic engineers developing weapons that are far more sophisticated. biological weapons that target certain groups of people are becoming more advanced.

The genetically engineered ‘superbug,’ highly lethal and resistant to environmental influence or any medical treatment, is only a small part of this story. Much more alarming, from an arms-control perspective, are the possibilities of developing completely novel weapons on the basis of knowledge provided by biomedical research — developments that are already taking place.

Such weapons, designed for new types of conflicts and warfare scenarios, secret operations or sabotage activities, are not mere science fiction but are increasingly becoming a reality that we have to face. Genetic sequencing of both the human germline and pathogens have been a cause for concern all over the world.

 In debates about genetic engineering and biological weapons, it is often stated that natural pathogens are sufficiently dangerous and deadly, and that genetic engineering is not necessary to turn them into more effective biological weapons.

Sequencing diseases and genetic experiments have taken on a new life in China.

These sequencing technologies and the scientists behind them have fallen under scrutiny by world biologists as many scientists in China are deemed mad scientists as they have been responsible for genetic engineering practices that have been seen as immoral. 

The global norm against biological weapons laid down in the 1925 Geneva Convention and the 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention, clearly contributed to the fact that few countries have been engaged in research into offensive bio-warfare during recent decades.

Science is capable of genetically modifying our foods and now genetically modifying a pathogen, force-multiplying its viral capabilities can now be seen as genetic extinction technology.

It is the mother of all genomic discoveries that rivals the nuclear warfare programs developed in the 1940s.

This makes the theory of the Novel Coronavirus being a biological weapon or an accidental biological release is all the more compelling.

With this in mind – the biggest killer right now is not just the virus but complacency. If you look back far enough, you can put together a good case for the theory that has now been an underlying fear amongst a lot of people around the world.

After all of the reports of the Coronavirus in the media at this time, it is not too far of a leap to consider that all of the tabletop exercises in 2018 and the comments by Bill gates in 2019 –did not constitute as a warning because hey knew what was coming and refused to act.

On June 13, 2012, a 60-year-old Saudi man was admitted to a private hospital in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, with a 7-day history of fever, cough, expectoration, and shortness of breath. He had no history of cardiopulmonary or renal disease, was receiving no long-term medications, and did not smoke.

Egyptian virologist Dr. Ali Mohamed Zaki isolated and identified a previously unknown coronavirus from his lungs. After routine diagnostics failed to identify the causative agent, Zaki contacted Ron Fouchier, a leading virologist at the Erasmus Medical Center (EMC) in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, for advice. 

Fouchier sequenced the virus from a sample sent by Zaki. Fouchier used a broad-spectrum “pan-coronavirus” real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method to test for distinguishing features of a number of known coronaviruses known to infect humans.

This Coronavirus sample was acquired by Scientific Director Dr. Frank Plummer of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML) in Winnipeg directly from Fouchier, who received it from Zaki. This virus was reportedly stolen from the Canadian lab by Chinese agents.

Coronavirus arrived at Canada’s NML Winnipeg facility on May 4, 2013, from the Dutch lab. The Canadian lab grew up stocks of the virus and used it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. Winnipeg scientists worked to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus.

The research was done in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s national lab, the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases which is housed in the same complex as the National Microbiology Laboratory.

Back on February 22nd. 2017 the weekly journal of Nature reported that a maximum security lab BSL-4 was under construction in Wuhan China. Constructing the   Maximum-security bio-lab was part of a plan to build a network of bio-safety level-4 or BSL-4 facilities across China.

The move was part of a plan to build between five and seven BSL-4 labs across the Chinese mainland by 2025,

At the time there were concerns about pathogens escaping, and the addition of a biological dimension to geopolitical tensions between China and other nations.

Chinese microbiologists were excited about their entrance to the elite technocrats empowered to wrestle with the world’s greatest biological threats.

The lab was to study Crimean–Congo hemorrhagic fever and the pathogen that causes SARS, another coronavirus that is in the same family of the novel coronavirus now plaguing the world.

Moreover, in August 2017, the National Health Commission of China approved research activities involving Ebola, Nipah (The Clade X virulent) , and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever viruses at the Wuhan facility.

Coincidentally, the Wuhan National Biosafety Laboratory is located only 20 miles away from the Huanan Seafood Market which is the epicenter of the Coronavirus outbreak dubbed the Wuhan Coronavirus.

In March 2019, a mysterious event occurred whereby a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses from Canada’s NML ended up in a BSL-4  facility in China. The event caused a major scandal with Bio-warfare experts questioning why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China. Scientists from NML said the highly lethal viruses were a potential bio-weapon.

Following an investigation, the incident was traced to Chinese agents working at NML. Four months later in July 2019, a group of Chinese virologists were forcibly dispatched from the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory (NML). The NML is Canada’s only level-4 facility and one of only a few in North America equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases, including Ebola, SARS, Coronavirus, and the sequenced Clade X Nipah variant virus.

The NML scientist who was escorted out of the Canadian lab along with her husband, another biologist and members of her research team is believed to be a Chinese Bio-Warfare agent Xiangguo Qiu. Qiu was the head of the Vaccine Development and Antiviral Therapies Section in the Special Pathogens Program at Canada’s NML.

The Canadian investigation is ongoing and questions remain whether previous shipments to China of other viruses or other essential preparations, took place from 2006 to 2018, one way or another.

China strongly denies it makes germ weapons, and Canadian officials say the shipment was part of its efforts to support public-health research worldwide. The sharing of such samples internationally is relatively standard practice.

But some experts are raising questions about the March transfer, which appears to be at the center of a shadowy RCMP investigation and dismissal of a top scientist at the Winnipeg-based NML.

No one is talking but everyone was certainly running simulations and now we may be witnessing either a bio attack or even more sickening – a gain of function release.

In October of 2019, it was reported that another simulation called Event 201 was conducted at John’s Hopkins University.  This time the Clade X—or disease X was a sequenced for of the coronavirus and it killed over 60 million people.

The fictional coronavirus at the center of the Event 201 simulation — a collaboration between the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, the World Economic Forum, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation — was called CAPS, and it started with pigs in Brazil before spreading to farmers, not unlike how 2019-nCoV reportedly began with animals before spreading to people.

Is this all a coincidence or proof of an even greater conspiracy to cull people with a sequenced disease?

One eerie coincidence that seems to be going viral on the internet is that the Wuhan BSL-4 lab has a logo that looks similar to the logo of the Umbrella Corporation, a biology lab that is seen in the movie Resident Evil.

And for those who may not be completely familiar with Resident Evil lore, the Umbrella Corporation fronts itself as a pharmaceutical company, when it reality it is developing bio-weapons to sell to the highest bidder. It’s biological experiments accidentally result in viral outbreaks that turn people into zombies and other mutated creatures.

One of the things we have taken for granted is that most Americans have great health. Even those who are considered health compromised have been able to manage their chronic disorders with vitamin supplements, drugs, medicines and now some people are even finding a panacea in tinctures of CBD oils and Cannabis.

20th-century medicine has been crucial in the prevention of infectious diseases, especially in childhood.

While we have had numerous breakthroughs and cures that are exemplary against known pathogens, the mutant pathogens certainly should be cause for concern and weaponized biological weapons while hard to trace are especially difficult to contain as genetic sequencing can cause a pathogen to literally shift into something force multiplied and far more deadly.

A coronavirus is a common infection that almost everyone gets at least once in their life.

Human coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that have been around for decades. They can cause mild illness and symptoms like runny nose, headache, cough, sore throat, and a fever. Two newer coronaviruses, SARS and MERS, have been known to cause severe illness including pneumonia and bronchitis and can be deadly.

So, I am sure with all this in mind you can say to yourself that these stories of death and illness are simply blown out of proportion and that you may be safe from contracting this illness.

When dealing with something that can be a bio-weapons grade pathogen it is best not to be too complacent about what is happening. 

Everyone’s so sure that everything will blow over and that there really isn’t a problem – that is until you get it and it mutates into pneumonia and eventually lung and organ failure.

The truth is whenever there is a pathogen like this novel coronavirus, the best thing you can do is fight.  Take precautions, wash your hands, supplement your body with things like vitamin D, vitamin C, Zinc, colloidal silver and things that boost your immune system.

And even though you may still get the virus, if your immune system is prepared, you can avoid dying as it moves through the body.

Even then it is important to understand that complacency is a killer.  You should not be complacent in thinking that the official Chinese pronouncements that the coronavirus is contained are actually accurate. They have been known to cover up stories as it makes their government look bad.  It is also important to not be too confident that one pass of this virus will be contained and that you are in the clear.

There is no guarantee that it won’t mutate into a second far more lethal advance of the coronavirus after all the overseas Chinese who went home for Lunar New Year return to their jobs in the U.S., Europe, Southeast Asia.

It has been reported that 5 million potential carriers have left Wuhan and many of them have not shown symptoms yet.  It is because it has a 10 day incubation period.

Over the weekend, there were numerous media reports published in hopes of easing fears that the coronavirus spread was uncontained, and informing the general public just how seriously China takes its quarantine of no less than 17 cities and roughly 60 million people.

Police at a roadblock on the outskirts of Wuhan turned away cars trying to leave the virus-stricken epicenter on Saturday, as other anxious residents trapped inside spent the Lunar New Year stocking up on masks and medical supplies.

While we are just hearing of cases in the United States, China is already bracing for “the next stage of the outbreak.”

To help tackle the epidemic, which has closed off 17 cities, 2,360 military and civilian doctors and nurses had been sent to Wuhan, the city in which the outbreak was first detected at the end of last month. As the pressure has mounted on the city’s hospitals, the medical system has moved ever closer to collapse.

Many people who developed feverish symptoms were turned away by hospitals earlier in the week because there were not enough beds, local residents said earlier. Medical practitioners are also running seriously short of protective kits and are being forced to recycle goggles and masks. 2,400 hospital beds had been added in Wuhan, and the government was planning to add 5,000 more over the next three days.

Meanwhile, the hunt for the real source of the pandemic continues. China imposed a nationwide ban on wildlife trade on Sunday, as the outbreak was originally suspected to have originated at a seafood market in Wuhan, which also sold wild animals. However, a research paper published by the medical journal, The Lancet, on Saturday said the first confirmed case of the viral infection was a person who had not been to that market.

There are reports that the coronavirus is affecting the markets and that President Trump is already meeting with senators on what would have to be implemented if there was an outbreak like what we are seeing in China.

In a worst-case scenario, the President may have to implement the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act, in order to allow for the continuity of government.

Under the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act, upon the declaration of a “public health emergency”, governors and public health officials would be empowered to:

Force individuals suspected of harboring an “infectious disease” to undergo medical examinations. Track and share an individual’s personal health information, including genetic information. Force persons to be vaccinated, treated, or quarantined for infectious diseases. This includes arresting, imprisoning and forcibly examining, vaccinating and medicating you and your children without your consent. The Government will not be held liable if these actions result in your death or injury.

The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act has been lingering for some time after the attacks on September 11th, 2001. It was first recommended as a means to help states protect citizens against bio-terrorist attacks and deal with national defense issues. The proposal deals with a number of horrific scenarios calling for new Military police powers all in the name of controlling epidemics of infectious diseases during public health emergencies.

This will put further restrictions on liberty through the passage of laws that will no longer need a full congress to decide if the crisis warrants desperate measures.
