Development of a pandemic, step by step
BY STEPHEN FLURRY • JUNE 23
More evidence is emerging about where, and from whom, covid-19 originated. And it points to a specific individual we have been watching more than almost anyone else—and a specific time frame that we have definitely been watching more than any other.
In their frenzy to win the news cycle at all costs, the radicals leave logic and truth for another day. But the amount of hypocrisy, lies and destruction they are piling up might be reaching critical mass. Soon, the truth about covid-19 might explode in their faces.
We don’t yet see everything important about the pandemic, but here is the picture that—despite the best efforts of the radical propaganda media—is coming into focus. Let’s look at it step by step.
We know that the United States was funding biological weapons research involving severe acute respiratory syndrome (sars) coronavirus. On Oct. 17, 2014, the Obama administration paused the funding due to the extreme risk of causing a pandemic. Yet it allowed an exception to continue funding if “the research is urgently necessary to protect the public health of national security.”
The U.S. military took advantage of this exception and continued funding research in Wuhan, China, the location of China’s only biosafety level four laboratory: the Wuhan Institute of Virology. It is home to, among other things, a collection of coronaviruses.
Meanwhile, you and I had never heard of coronavirus, potential pandemic pathogens, mask mandates or Anthony Fauci.
In 2016, an election year, the U.S. government’s National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity specifically studied whether research should continue into enhancing “potential pandemic pathogens.” It reported that such research could benefit public health but also entailed significant risks and recommended additional scrutiny. One of the members of this board is Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Anthony Fauci.
In November 2016, the federal government establishment was absolutely rocked by the unexpected election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th president of the United States. The line of succession from radical liberal Barack Obama to radical liberal Hillary Clinton was obliterated.
This victory came in spite of the fact that Obama, his “deep state” collaborators and the propaganda media worked unconstitutionally and illegally to sabotage the Trump campaign, to sabotage the Trump transition team, and to sabotage the Trump administration even after he became president! Perhaps the most infamous example of this was the Oval Office meeting on Jan. 5, 2017, two weeks before Trump was to be inaugurated. In the room were President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey, National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, National Security Advisor Susan Rice and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.
As my father said in his May 11, 2018, Key of David program, Obama and his conspirators at this meeting were “plotting how they could overthrow the presidency of Mr. Donald Trump.”
Behind the scenes, Obama’s team had been working furiously. We don’t know everything that they were doing, but we know they were using false, illegal means to launch and prolong an investigation into a false charge of Russian election meddling; they were entrapping incoming National Security Advisor Michael Flynn; they were weaponizing a filthy, sensational, bogus dossier paid for by the Clinton Campaign; they were expanding the surveillance powers of spy agencies; and they were boosting dangerous bioweapons research.
Four days after that meeting, Obama reauthorized funding for the creation of sars coronavirus biological weapons. The authorization stated that researchers who followed the federal guidelines “will satisfy the requirements for lifting the current moratorium on certain life sciences research that could enhance a pathogen’s virulence and/or transmissibility to produce a potential pandemic pathogen.”
As the Conservative Treehouse blog noted, “[E]ssentially this reauthorization was only kick-starting funding within the U.S. because the funding of weaponization of sars-CoV-2 never actually stopped in 2014.”
The day after the Obama reauthorization, a man involved in funding potential pandemic pathogens, Anthony Fauci, gave a speech at Georgetown University. The topic was pandemic preparedness. “We will definitely get surprised in the next few years,” he said. “What about the things we are not even thinking about? No matter what, history has told us definitively that [outbreaks] will happen, because [facing] infectious diseases is a perpetual challenge. It is not going to go away. The thing we’re extraordinarily confident about is that we’re going to see this in the next few years.”
Gain of Function
Meanwhile, U.S. government scientists like Fauci continued collaborating with Chinese Communist scientists to engineer potential pandemic pathogens. And we have strong evidence that, at some point, they succeeded: a new (novel) coronavirus gained function.
Dr. Steven Quay and Richard Mueller wrote about how this was likely accomplished in “The Science Suggests a Wuhan Lab Leak” for the Wall Street Journal on June 6 of this year:
Much of the public discussion has focused on circumstantial evidence: mysterious illnesses in late 2019; the lab’s work intentionally supercharging viruses to increase lethality (known as “gain of function” research). The Chinese Communist Party has been reluctant to release relevant information. Reports based on U.S. intelligence have suggested the lab collaborated on projects with the Chinese military.
But the most compelling reason to favor the lab leak hypothesis is firmly based in science. In particular, consider the genetic fingerprint of CoV-2, the novel coronavirus responsible for the disease covid-19.
In gain-of-function research, a microbiologist can increase the lethality of a coronavirus enormously by splicing a special sequence into its genome at a prime location. Doing this leaves no trace of manipulation. But it alters the virus spike protein, rendering it easier for the virus to inject genetic material into the victim cell. Since 1992 there have been at least 11 separate experiments adding a special sequence to the same location. The end result has always been supercharged viruses. …
At the minimum, this fact—that the coronavirus, with all its random possibilities, took the rare and unnatural combination used by human researchers—implies that the leading theory for the origin of the coronavirus must be laboratory escape.
This is almost certainly what occurred in Wuhan. And it connects back to the government bureaucrat who helped fund the lab, Dr. Fauci.
Then we come to November 2019. A mysterious disease strikes a 55-year-old resident in Hubei Province, in or near its capital city, Wuhan. The individual will become the first confirmed case of covid-19. Then it spreads.
As viral infections spread in Wuhan, many immediately asked about the Wuhan Institute of Virology. One of them was President Trump. Liberal politicians and journalists reacted with piles of accusations that believing this was unscientific, indulgence of a conspiracy theory, and—of course—racist.
In addition to the clear genetic evidence that covid-19 came from that lab, e-mails from that time show that Dr. Fauci was well aware that it could have been man-made and some of the scientists he was working with thought that was the case. He and his associates also e-mailed each other news reports about the lab leak theory. In fact, he now insists that he has “always kept an open mind” that the pandemic could have spread from a lab.
But if it spread from a lab where he and Barack Obama helped China create a potential pandemic pathogen, what might his, Obama’s and China’s motivation be?
Before covid-19 was declared a pandemic, yet after the World Health Organization had declared it a global health emergency in January 2020, and President Trump banned travel from China, Fauci downplayed the disease and the need for lockdowns. In January he said that people with no symptoms are not significant spreaders of viruses. In February 2020, he told usa Today, “You don’t need to be walking around with a mask right now. Masks, quite frankly, are more important for people who are infected, to prevent them from infecting someone else,” adding that masks from drug stores “let the virus through.” He said the same thing in his own e-mails, stating in one, “The typical mask you buy in the drug store is not really effective in keeping out [the] virus, which is small enough to pass through material.” On March 8, he characterized the lockdowns in China to cbs News as “draconian” and not “feasible” or “applicable” in the U.S.
Then the flip-flops came, fast and furious. Just a week later, he said he was open to a “15 days to slow the spread” lockdown in the U.S. In April, he told cnn that more restrictions implemented earlier on “obviously” could have saved lives, but health officials faced “a lot of pushback about shutting things down,” seeming to implicate the Trump administration. He advocated continued government lockdowns and said they might extend through to the election in November. In July, he claimed that his recent statements about masks being largely ineffective were actually designed to reduce demand so that all the doctors and nurses could get the ones they needed. (In other words, a lie, but a lie for the right reasons.) In August, he completely contradicted himself and said that asymptomatic cases actually were a driving factor in the spread of the disease. He was (and is) all over the news, wearing a mask, then two masks, saying it was “common sense.”
Meanwhile, Fauci publicly, firmly advocated the theory that “the science” showed that covid-19 almost certainly spread to humans from bats, not from the lab. News and social media executives and their journalists attacked and banned people who said that it was more likely the lab than it was the bats. A statement in the Lancet signed by 27 public health scientists in February 2020 captured the gist of the prevailing narrative:
We sign this statement in solidarity with all scientists and health professionals in China who continue to save lives and protect global health during the challenge of the covid-19 outbreak. We are all in this together, with our Chinese counterparts in the forefront, against this new viral threat. … We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that covid-19 does not have a natural origin.
But this intimidation and censorship, necessary for perpetuating the lockdowns, might be on the verge of losing out to the actual truth. And that has some people scared.
The One Constant
The timing, the details and the flip-flopping could get a little confusing until you look for what the motivation is, what the agenda is, and who benefits. In all of this, Barack Obama, Anthony Fauci, the deep state in the U.S. and the Communist party in China are distancing themselves from the coronavirus pandemic and justifying their draconian, unconstitutional, tyrannical lockdowns in the United States and around the world. That’s the motivation. Their self-interest and radical agendas will continue to motivate them in the months ahead as more condemning truths emerge.
Fauci in particular and liberal bureaucrats and propagandists in general are continually forced to contort their explanations to try to advance themselves and their agendas. That is why so many people find bold, simple, flat statements of fact so refreshing.
Many Americans rallied to President Trump when he said this at a North Carolina Republican convention on June 5 of this year:
The media, the Democrats and the so-called experts are now finally admitting what I first said 13 months ago the evidence demonstrates, that the virus originated in a Chinese government lab. Couldn’t say it. [Applause] You couldn’t say it. And Dr. Fauci, who I actually got along with—he’s a nice guy; he’s a great promoter, you know. Not a great doctor, but he is a h*** of a promoter. He likes television more than any politician in this room. And they like television. But he’s been wrong on almost every issue, and he was wrong on Wuhan and the lab also, very wrong.
Do you see why the deep state and American enemies like China hate President Trump? Do you see how motivated they are to keep him out of the White House? Here is another bold statement from that same speech:
But Fauci has, perhaps, never been more wrong than when he denied the virus and where it came from. The time has come for America and the world to demand reparations and accountability from the Communist Party of China. We should all declare within one unified voice that China must pay. They must pay. The United States should immediately take steps to phase in a firm 100 percent tariff on all goods made in China.
In his August 2020 Trumpet article “Where Is the China-America Clash Leading?” my father noted that the U.S. had withdrawn funding to China in 2014 due to fears over controversial experiments to make pathogens more virulent. An unclassified cable warned of “inadequate safety practices and management weaknesses” as researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology “conducted research on coronaviruses from bats.” The cable said the lab had “a serious shortage of appropriately trained technicians and investigators needed to safely operate this high-containment laboratory.”
Now even the propaganda media and the Big Tech sensors are allowing that maybe people who believe this aren’t “dangerous conspiracy theorists,” the “lab leak theory” might be the lab leak truth, and maybe they should give people their freedom of speech back. But you can be sure they won’t allow that this could trace back to Anthony Fauci and Barack Obama! And they will still want to censor you if you connect any of this to Obama’s stated agenda of “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” and trying to blot out the blessings and traditions of this country.
