Back in January, I did a show about the Chinese new year as I do every year to point out the symbolism that exists in the Chinese Zodiac.

I pointed out that it was the year of the “metal rat” and concluded that new technology hook ups and Artificial Intelligence would be in our future and that metal rats or robots would actually be marketed to the public.

While the metal rat theme is still in play with 5G, facial recognition and a possible cashless society and biometrics in our future – the true rat analogy that is applicable now is the lab rat.

This is the Chinese year of the Lab Rat.

We are all being treated like lab rats because of a disease that we know came from China and what is most disconcerting is that while we first reported that COVID-19 may have been released in a bio-lab – we faced the ridicule of pushing an unfounded conspiracy theory but now this once vilified conspiracy theory is now getting legs and the idea that it was sequenced in a lab is finally being discussed in the mainstream media.

Unfortunately, this is what the mainstream media calls “facts without fear.”

According to mainstream news There is increasing confidence that the COVID-19 outbreak likely originated in a Wuhan laboratory, though not as a bioweapon but as part of China’s attempt to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States.

Hate to be the one to say we told you so—but we told you so.

Numerous virology experts are now on record as saying it cannot be dismissed, and multiple government and intelligence sources have confirmed that investigations are underway into the possibility that the coronavirus leaked from an unsafe Wuhan bio-lab and China lied about the true scale of the outbreak.

However, the fact checkers on Facebook and the Google searches have all shadow banned or have skewed searches so that you will have a hard time doing research on your own about the matter.

Most mainstream websites including Fact Checker, have said that this particular conspiracy theory poses a health hazard.

Lately, I have been noticing in forums that there are people who are citing my show and my research and giving it the credibility I feel it deserves. However, there are those that are vaguely familiar with what I do that tend to fight and disagree with my stance on certain stories. That is not a problem — but there are those that are not satisfied with disagreeing – the resort to saying things like “Not everything is a conspiracy,” or “I am sure Bigfoot has something to say about this” or “Perhaps you can ask Clyde if the aliens can save us.”

Now, I know this is to be expected because of the fact that I touch on these subjects from time to time and I do in fact open up dialogue about various conspiracy theories. However, to my credit I can say that whatever we talk about on this program is certainly part of my commitment to summarize and report everything that may be of substance for some future event or some amazing account that the media will not report.

Even the great broadcaster Edward R. Morrow did a report in 1947 called “The Case of the Flying Saucer.” It offered a balanced look at UFOs, a subject of widespread interest at the time. Murrow interviewed both Kenneth Arnold and astronomer Donald Menzel.

From 1951 to 1955, Murrow was the host of the show “This I Believe,” which offered ordinary people the opportunity to speak for five minutes on radio. This was similar to what Art Bell would do when he would open the lines for average ordinary people giving their views on conspiracy theories, politics, and of course, Flying Saucers.

Murrow was a pioneer, he continued to present daily radio news reports on the CBS Radio Network until 1959.

His reporting always raised conflict with CBS because what he did was unconventional. He pioneered what can be called “guerrilla journalism” which captured the attention of the FBI and t the House Un-American Activities Committee. He was being accused of being friendly to communism.

Times have really not changed – even thought that my show had been nominated for Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Broadcasting. There are still those who want to throw labels around, just to boost their lack of credibility.

My crew and I have always been independently producing what we feel you need to know and we have done it in a way that is entertaining; if people want to be insulting, then they certainly do not know of our record.

Reporting trends and stories before they show up on the mainstream news has always been my job. It has also been my job to report disinformation and analyze conspiracy theory. Contrary to what some may believe — this is certainly not a question of belief or political affiliation; it is exposing some of the dishonesty of not reporting certain stories, covering up certain stories and outright lies that the media appears to be doing without any regard for accuracy.

Accuracy is a critical dimension of information quality. People can easily acquire false beliefs about the world as a result of inaccurate and misleading information. And such false beliefs can often lead to significant emotional, physical, and financial harm.

Disinformation can also be a threat to your security; in fact, an entire nation can be harmed by any misleading information that can cause riots, and or civil upheaval.

Inaccurate and misleading information can have such bad consequences whether the source of the information made an honest mistake, misinformation or actually intended to deceive which is a classic form of disinformation.

People are now being programmed to discredit many stories because some news organization wishes to label them conspiracy theories or hoaxes. But as many of us may already know the truth prevails but even though the truth is there in front of people, many will turn their backs on it because it creates a doubt in their self-imposed normalcy bias.

When it comes to the COVID-19 crisis, the facts are admittedly ripe for conspiracy theory: China’s only high-security infectious-disease laboratory is located in Wuhan, the city where the coronavirus behind the COVID-19 pandemic first emerged. And the lab is famous for its sometimes controversial research on just such pathogens.

Most of the online speculation, about COVID-19 being a biological weapon has spread faster than the virus itself, only to be censored and dismissed as anti-science.

But a new report suggesting U.S. diplomats voiced serious concern about safety at the lab in 2018 has added circumstantial backing to what we reported even before the virus was mainstream news — that perhaps the virus leaked accidentally from that Wuhan Institute of Virology lab.

In January 2018, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing took the unusual step of repeatedly sending U.S. science diplomats to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which had in 2015 become China’s first laboratory to achieve the highest level of international bioresearch safety (known as BSL-4). WIV issued a news release in English about the last of these visits, which occurred on March 27, 2018. The U.S. delegation was led by Jamison Fouss, the consul general in Wuhan, and Rick Switzer, the embassy’s counselor of environment, science, technology and health. Last week, the Wuhan Institute of Virology erased that statement from its website, though it remains archived on the Internet.

What the U.S. officials learned during their visits concerned them so much that they dispatched two diplomatic cables categorized as Sensitive but Unclassified back to Washington. The cables warned about safety and management weaknesses at the Western Institute of Virology lab and proposed more attention and help.

During interactions with scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology laboratory, they noted the new lab has a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.

The State Department would not make the cables public.

The Chinese researchers at Wuhan Institutes of Virology were receiving assistance from the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch and other U.S. organizations, but the Chinese requested additional help. The cables argued that the United States should give the Wuhan lab further support, mainly because its research on bat coronaviruses was important but also dangerous.

As the cable noted, the U.S. visitors met with Shi Zhengli, the head of the research project, who had been publishing studies related to bat coronaviruses for many years. In November 2017, just before the U.S. officials’ visit, Shi’s team had published research showing that horseshoe bats they had collected from a cave in Yunnan province were very likely from the same bat population that spawned the SARS coronavirus in 2003.

Last year, The Wuhan Institute of Virology in China posted a job opening on November 18, 2019, “asking for scientists to come research the relationship between the coronavirus and bats.”

The Google translation of the job posting is: “Taking bats as the research object, I will answer the molecular mechanism that can coexist with Ebola and SARS- associated coronavirus for a long time without disease, and its relationship with flight and longevity. Virology, immunology, cell biology, and multiple omics are used to compare the differences between humans and other mammals.” Omics” is a term for a subfield within biology, such as genomics or glycomics.

On December 24, 2019, the Wuhan Institute of Virology posted a second job posting. The translation of that posting includes the declaration, “long-term research on the pathogenic biology of bats carrying important viruses has confirmed the origin of bats of major new human and livestock infectious diseases such as SARS and SADS, and a large number of new bat and rodent new viruses have been discovered and identified.”

This would indicate that scientist either discovered a new and terrible virus or that they sequenced a new and unstable virus that they could not contain and that they needed to recruit people to deal with it.

Doctors in Wuhan knew that they were dealing with a cluster of pneumonia cases as December progressed, but it is accurate to say that a very limited number of people knew about this particular strain of coronavirus and its severity at the time of that job posting. By December 31, about three weeks after doctors first noticed the cases, the Chinese government notified the World Health Organization and the first media reports about a “mystery pneumonia” appeared outside China.

On February 4th 2020, one week before the World Health Organization decided to officially name this virus “COVID-19” — the journal, Cell Research posted a notice written by scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology about the virus, concluding, “our findings reveal that Remdesivir and Chloroquine are highly effective in the control of 2019-nCoV infection in vitro.

Since these compounds have been used in human patients with a safety track record and shown to be effective against various ailments, we suggest that they should be assessed in human patients suffering from the novel coronavirus disease.”

So, this information was available in February. The use of these drugs to help treat COVID-19 were already recommended by the Chinese long before President Trump recommended them, the media turned it into a political attack while many people were dying from the virus.

Most of the media is still attacking the possibility that these drugs can work even though they were recommended by the very task forced that was investigating it from the very beginning.

Someone is using fear as a tool for compliance and I think we know who is behind this.

Those who are quick to scream and yell about inconvenient stories that they call conspiracy theory are those that are in the business of lying in order to procure time to get a vaccine.

A Facebook fact checker who has ‘debunked’ articles suggesting that COVID-19 may have leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology has a giant conflict of interest; she worked at the institute.

Danielle Anderson, who works at Duke University’s NUS Medical School lab in Singapore, also contributes to Science Feedback – which Facebook has been using to slap “False Information” labels on articles claiming that COVID-19 may have originated at the Wuhan Institute where Anderson worked with bat coronavirus.

A quick search of Anderson’s publications reveals no fewer than nine collaborations with Dr. Peng Zhou – a Wuhan scientist experimenting on bat coronavirus.

Mention of his name may get you banned on Twitter.

Anderson has been adamant that the lab adheres to the highest standards of safety, and that COVID-19 simply couldn’t have accidentally been leaked by her colleagues.

This also seems to be the official story as many scientists which are probably hired mercenaries with a promise of a cut of the money from a vaccine have said that there is no evidence that the virus now plaguing the world was engineered; scientists largely agree it came from animals. But that is not the same as saying it didn’t come from the lab, which spent years testing bat coronaviruses in animals.

Insiders have told the New York Times exactly what we have said all along about COVID-19 being Schrodinger’s virus. They commented that what the cables from Wuhan Institute of Virology indicate is that.

“The idea that it was just a totally natural occurrence is circumstantial. The evidence it leaked from the lab is circumstantial. Right now, the ledger on the side of it leaking from the lab is packed with bullet points and there’s almost nothing on the other side.”

So then we are to believe that the virus was spread by Bats and that it was leaked from a lab.

Of course we still have to guess about intent and whether or not someone would benefit from releasing the virus as a bio weaponized killing system or for a gain of function exercise.

We already know that Remdesivir and Chloroquine have been politically dismissed as treatments by the media Dr. Fauci and Bill Gates even though Chinese Doctors say that it was highly effective in treating COVID-19.

Does anyone see what is happening here?

There has been a rush to save face by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation as they claim that they have been under attack by those who wish to believe outrageous conspiracy theories that vilify their foundation.

Gates Foundation CEO Mark Suzman made a statement:

“We’re aware that there’s allegations made in social media and other [channels] about nefarious schemes the foundation is alleged to be part of,” in connection with an announcement that the foundation is allocating $150 million more to fighting the pandemic.

All I can say is, one, we’re completely transparent about who we are and what we do,” he said. “We are able to talk about any and every investment and grant we make. We’re very transparent about our mission, our values, and we really have nothing to hide.”

Furthermore, he states that “We’re about making sure every person on the planet in the United States and around the world … has the opportunity to live a healthy and productive life,” he said. “Every statement we make, every action we take, is toward that end.”

So if this is the case then perhaps they should use their money to provide Remdesivir or Chloroquine to patience as it was known as far back as February that it worked in China.

Lately, Bill Gates has been showing up on various platforms in various interviews telling everyone they can’t leave their homes until there’s a vaccine for the coronavirus. Smart Americans should be asking “Who put this man in charge?”

We did not vote for him; he is not some powerful political figure or even a medical advisor so why should we care about what he thinks? Why does the media give him any credibility when we know that his relationships with Dr. Fauci and even Jeffery Epstein create on hell of a conflict of interest?

In 2011, Gates instructed a team to meet Epstein at his townhouse to discuss philanthropic fundraising, The New York Times reports. Epstein told the people there that his conviction for soliciting prostitution from an underage girl was no worse than “stealing a bagel,” according to two people who were there.

The two remained in contact, and at one point in 2013, Gates flew on Epstein’s jet from New Jersey to Palm Beach, Florida, according to a flight manifest. Gates’ spokeswoman claims Gates, who owns his own private jet, didn’t know it was Epstein’s plane. Though the relationship between Gates and Epstein apparently cooled off after 2014, the Gates Foundation remained in contact with Epstein through 2017.

But because Gates is a philanthropist who’s giving millions and maybe billions to help develop a coronavirus vaccine, and because Dr. Strangeglove Fauci is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIAID, and thereby, by default, by medical professional and government service default, afforded philanthropist-like status — the media gives free passes to them both.

Both are not heroes – we did not vote for them; they are in a partnership which is a conflict of interest.

Fauci originally took the Gates line supporting vaccines and casting doubt on Chloroquine. Coronavirus response team member Dr. Deborah Birx, appointed by former president Obama to serve as United States Global AIDS Coordinator, also sits on the board of a group that has received billions from Gates’ foundation, and Birx reportedly used a disputed Bill Gates-funded model for the White Houses’ Coronavirus effort.

Gates is a big proponent for a population lockdown scenario for the Coronavirus outbreak.

Lockdown of course stops the spread but their advice is to push lockdown for at least 18 months until a vaccine is created.

Fauci is pushing the talking point that things will never go back to normal in our society until we have the ability to mass-vaccinate people, echoing Bill Gates’ assertion that mass gatherings in our culture “may not come back at all” before mass-vaccinations.

Now, who do you think profits from all of this?

This is not conspiracy theory – this is a conspiracy.

Fauci downplayed the threat of Coronavirus on January 21st,2020 in a Newsmax TV interview, saying, “This is not a major threat for the people in the United States, and this is not something that the citizens of the United States right now should be worried about.” Since then, Coronavirus has exploded in the United States, boosting demand for a vaccine.

Fauci later said that people would not have to change their daily activities as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases actually funded a study on Bat Coronavirus, which was a project that included scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the Chinese lab at the center of controversy over their bat research. That study confirmed in 2018 that humans have died from coronavirus.

Here is what Gates said regarding Chloroquine in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session:

“There are a lot of therapeutic drugs being examined. This is one of many but it is not proven. If it works we will need to make sure the finite supplies are held for the patients who need it most. We have a study going on to figure this out. We also have a screening effort to look at all the ideas for Therapeutics because the number being proposed is very large and only the most promising should be tried in patients. China was testing some things but now they have so few cases that that testing needs to move to other locations,” Gates said.

Gates is funding coronavirus vaccine candidates that would compete with chloroquine, and Dr. Fauci’s agency is co-partnering on the project.

The mainstream media in its framing war will tell you that conspiracy theories are divisive, dangerous, and evil. The term ‘conspiracy theory’ has long been used to discredit anyone pointing out collusion between powerful people, but efforts to pathologize dissent as ‘conspiracism’ are doomed to collapse under the weight of reality.
