Wall Street Journal: The Science Suggests a Wuhan Lab Leak

Editor’s Note: I’m finally back home after a long weekend at the beach in Florida. We went down there to celebrate my son’s birthday.

This always seemed like an obvious question to me.

If COVID escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology OR was released there as part of some kind of Deep State op to undermine the Chinese government, couldn’t you tell by simply examining the virus? Shouldn’t it have also become clear very early on that it was created in a lab?

Wall Street Journal:

“The possibility that the pandemic began with an escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology is attracting fresh attention. President Biden has asked the national intelligence community to redouble efforts to investigate.

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. …

Although the double CGG is suppressed naturally, the opposite is true in laboratory work. The insertion sequence of choice is the double CGG. That’s because it is readily available and convenient, and scientists have a great deal of experience inserting it. An additional advantage of the double CGG sequence compared with the other 35 possible choices: It creates a useful beacon that permits the scientists to track the insertion in the laboratory. …

But in a matter of weeks virologists Bruno Coutard and colleagues published their discovery of the sequence in CoV-2 and its novel supercharged site. Double CGG is there; you only have to look. They comment in their paper that the protein that held it “may provide a gain-of-function” capability to the virus, “for efficient spreading” to humans. …”

It turns out that there were a lot people who examined the virus and who identified all of these interesting features which are hard to explain through a zoonotic origin over a year ago.

Daily Mail:

An explosive new study claims that Chinese scientists created COVID-19 in a Wuhan lab, then tried to cover their tracks by reverse-engineering versions of the virus to make it look like it evolved naturally from bats.

The paper’s authors, British Professor Angus Dalgleish and Norwegian scientist Dr. Birger Sørensen, wrote that they have had ‘prima facie evidence of retro-engineering in China‘ for a year – but were ignored by academics and major journals.   

Dalgleish is a professor of oncology at St George’s University, London, and is best known for his breakthrough creating the first working ‘HIV vaccine’, to treat diagnosed patients and allow them to go off medication for months.

Sørensen, a virologist, is chair of pharmaceutical company, Immunor, which developed a coronavirus vaccine candidate called Biovacc-19. Dalgleish also has share options in the firm. 

The shocking allegations in the study include accusations of ‘deliberate destruction, concealment or contamination of data’ at Chinese labs, and it notes the silencing and disappearance of scientists in the communist country who spoke out. 

The journal article, exclusively obtained by DailyMail.com and slated for publication in the coming days, is set to make waves among the scientific community, as the majority of experts have until recently staunchly denied the origins of COVID-19 were anything other than a natural infection leaping from animals to humans. …

While analyzing COVID-19 samples last year in an attempt to create a vaccine, Dalgleish and Sørensen discovered ‘unique fingerprints’ in the virus that they say could only have arisen from manipulation in a laboratory. …

Dalgleish and Sørensen claim that scientists working on Gain of Function projects took a natural coronavirus ‘backbone’ found in Chinese cave bats and spliced onto it a new ‘spike’, turning it into the deadly and highly transmissible SARS-Cov-2. …

One tell-tale sign of alleged manipulation the two men highlighted was a row of four amino acids they found on the SARS-Cov-2 spike.

In an exclusive interview with DailyMail.com, Sørensen said the amino acids all have a positive charge, which cause the virus to tightly cling to the negatively charged parts of human cells like a magnet, and so become more infectious.

But because, like magnets, the positively charged amino acids repel each other, it is rare to find even three in a row in naturally occurring organisms, while four in a row  is ‘extremely unlikely,’ the scientist said.

‘The laws of physics mean that you cannot have four positively charged amino acids in a row. The only way you can get this is if you artificially manufacture it,’ Dalgleish told DailyMail.com.

Their new paper says these features of SARS-Cov-2 are ‘unique fingerprints’ which are ‘indicative of purposive manipulation’, and that ‘the likelihood of it being the result of natural processes is very small.’ …”

India Today:

“It was during this search, said the scientists, that they came across documents related to an abandoned copper mine in Mojiang in south China. In 2012, six miners were employed to clean the mineshaft, which was full of bat droppings (guano or bat faeces), according to a report by the Wall Street Journal. …

After having worked at the mine, all of the six miners got very ill. They were exhibiting symptoms such as fever, cough and blood clots, all of which are commonly seen in Covid-19 patients. There were also symptoms like fatigue, followed by pneumonia in the lungs.

Dr Rahalkar added that the radiological reports of Covid-19 patients around the world are very similar to those of the six miners from Mojiang. The CT scans of the miners had ground-glass opacities which were peripheral and match the characteristics of scans of Covid-19 patients. …”

Vanity Fair:

“As the NSC tracked these disparate clues, U.S. government virologists advising them flagged one study first submitted in April 2020. Eleven of its 23 coauthors worked for the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, the Chinese army’s medical research institute. Using the gene-editing technology known as CRISPR, the researchers had engineered mice with humanized lungs, then studied their susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2. As the NSC officials worked backward from the date of publication to establish a timeline for the study, it became clear that the mice had been engineered sometime in the summer of 2019, before the pandemic even started. The NSC officials were left wondering: Had the Chinese military been running viruses through humanized mouse models, to see which might be infectious to humans? …”

If COVID escaped from a lab, there are only three places in the world where this kind of research was being conducted and where you would expect a pandemic to begin: Galveston, TX, Chapel Hill, NC and Wuhan. Alternatively, if COVID emerged naturally by jumping from a horseshoe bat to humans, then somehow it managed to do that in Wuhan in the middle of winter which is 1,809 miles from the Mojiang cave in Yunnan province where the horseshoe bats live who are known to carry these viruses. The natural origin hypothesis would also have to account for why COVID has all of these extremely unusual features like the double CGG sequence used by lab workers and this row of four positively charged amino acids on its spike protein which make the virus more infectious to humans.

It is pretty clear what happened: these mine workers got infected with a SARS-like virus in 2012 and died, Shi Zhengli aka Bat Lady was sent down to the Yunnan cave to collect samples which were brought back to Wuhan, Bat Lady learned in America from Ralph Baric at the University of North Carolina how to create frankenstein viruses, Bat Lady was being funded by the NIH to conduct this research through Peter Daszak and EcoHealth Alliance, the Chinese military was conducting gain of function experiments on these SARS-like viruses with humanized mice at the Wuhan Institute of Virology to harness their military potential, there was a lab accident in the autumn of 2019 and it got out and the rest is history.

It is not in the interest of China, the U.S. government or the public health establishment for this to get out. It is not in the interest of Wall Street for this to get out because of the uproar it would inevitably lead to. If COVID has a natural origin like SARS or MERS, then it is no one’s fault, but if it doesn’t and the public finds out there will be hell to pay.

    • You can quite easily put the evidence for the lab leak up for analysis for yourself. Then make a judgement. Looks like biological warfare to me! The issue then becomes why the state decided to remove a duly elected leader when the country was suffering from a biological attack. Then it gets very disturbing. Biden owes his presidency to this terror attack. He’s much more evil than it appears. His countrymen were attacked and he decided to gain the function of the presidency for a coalition of niggers AWFLs and jews.

      • Also not a “leak”. It was planned, timed and deliberate by our delightful “dual-citizens” no doubt. Pretty confident no chinese were involved in the release part.

        • @KT-88…

          Definitely NOT a leak, Dear Königstiger, but, I respectfully disagree over the Davos & Bilderberg conspiracy – yes, it was World Jewry, but, as well, many elements of The United States’ Government, and Gentiles of everz stripe in media, state and local governments, and, yes, The Chinese government was in on it.

          All in all, a conspiracy like this country has never seen – or, if it has any competition, it would have to be the conspiracies of establishing ‘The Federal Reserve’ or that of getting us into WWI for the sole reason of establishing Israel.

      • I lean towards typical Chinese carelessness and an accidental infection in the worksite. It doesn’t really make sense for them to release it in Wuhan, you don’t shit where you eat. Having it appear right outside of the lab made it obvious to all the competent foreign intelligence services where it originated. If they wanted it to get out with more plausible denial they would want to infect some small village in the south then let it go in Hong Kong onto flights to the world where it could look more “natural.” Now the extreme suppression of doctors and scientists in the early days of the epidemic who innocently were trying to avert catastrophe makes sense. The CCP leadership already knew one of their Frankenstein experiments had gotten loose and were trying to cover their ass.

  1. It wouldn’t surprise me at all, if it turned out out our own stupid, corrupt venal political class caused this to happen. Watch how Fauci is allowed to fail up. He will be allowed to retire with nice pension, and will get his history “washed” by Wikipedia and the press. It will be up to the alternative media, to make sure they don’t get away with it

  2. Kinda makes me wish the “far right” hadn’t spent the last year plus fagging the mainstream narrative on this psyop out of a misguided and cynical effort to kneecap the president during his election.

  3. I have an idea to stop this happening again. Move the labs to isolated islands without populations, and use strict quarantine procedures. Also don’t do gain of function research. No we can’t do that, for it would be common sense.

  4. Naturally-occurring novel virus…
    Man-made bioweapon…
    Virtual Virus…

    Only one is, by magnitudes, more powerful than the others leaving blood-free hands while depending on a voluntary collective of mass hysteria to escape any accountability.

  5. Fauci won’t pay, and neither will Baric & Daszak, let alone the remote chinks, No one with wealth, political connections & Ivy League credentials ever do pay, no matter the atrocities they commit & the vast human suffering & grief they leave in their wake. It’s a closed, protected club.

    And we don’t know for certain that the jewS spooks didn’t release the virus in Wuhan to stick it to the Chinese rival. Some might reply “Well, if so, why did they bend over backwards up til now to dismiss the idea that it was man-made as a racist conspiracy theory only tinfoil hatters would believe?” Simply to shitcan Dump; once that was safely accomplished…why, ya know, there just MIGHT be something to that man-made theory after all!

    But of course we don’t know if that’s how it happened, nor will we know. What looks certain is that:

    1. it WAS man-made

    2. It WAS used to get rid of Orange jewdas, and to wreck small businesses worldwide to prepare the ground for the eco-commie Great Reset that “just happens” to also be a huge boon to globalist behemoths like Amazon & Walmart.

    3. Fauci & the rest of the “expert” scum infesting “our” government & allied parasite institutions funded the gain-of-function Russian roulette, endangering all our lives, and they’re now trying to cover their asses. And they almost certainly will succeed, since the kikemedia is foinf everything it can to help.

  6. We trust ZOG’s official news outlets now? Shall we join John Bolton and the rest of the neocons bashing China?

  7. It appears that Eco-Health alliance got the money from the CDC, so the US government is implicated in the creation of Covid-19. Just how surreal is America?

  8. Pseudo-science rubbish! Of course the U.S. does develop and maintain biological weapons, but SARS CoV-2 is a natural, zoonotic isease that jumped accidentally to humans. You are amplifying hybrid war propaganda, assisting (inadvertently or not) capitalist-imperialist hybrid war against the remnant of communism in China.

    This propaganda is also designed to cover up the deliberate failure of the U.S. and other capitalist governments to control the pandemic, in order to protect the interests of the privileged class, by casting blame on communism in China for the 600,000 to 900,000 fatalities in the U.S. and millions more with permanent lung damage and other injury – who now become victims of “the Yellow commies” instead of the rotten capitalist system that is designed to exploit people for maximum personal gain.

  9. Re: “It is not in the interest of China, the U.S. government or the public health establishment for this to get out. It is not in the interest of Wall Street for this to get out”:

    Oh yes it is. The proof that it is in the interest of the capitalist system is that the capitalist media (Faux News, WSJ, Vanity Fair, etc.) is now promoting it, or suggesting it, slyly and coyly. This is nothing but hybrid war propaganda against socialism and deflecting the blame as preventable mass death becomes normalized, fully accepted, under a fully privatized for-profit “public” health system.

  10. Remember the propaganda of “Yellow Rain,” that some scientists claimed to have analyzed and proved was a Russian biological weapon being released in southeast Asia, and people were said to be sickened and dying. But in fact the “yellow rain” was natural pollen and insect feces and it was U.S. bombing that killed millions in southeast Asia. We must not amplify these false narratives!

  11. It was not a ‘leak’, as that would imply that Covid-19, and it’s release in autumn of 2019, was ‘accidental’.

    Be that as it may be, the man the virus was intended to oust from The Oval Office, President Trump, has decided to run for Congress in 2022, a position from which he will be appointed Speaker of The House.

    That will be an amusing twist, eh?

    • The 180 turn on the narrative is puzzling. What’s going through my mind is “Is it good for the jews/Israel? Can it be made good for the jews/Israel?”

      We can’t engage in a military conflict with China because that would interrupt profits and we would lose the cheap imports. But isn’t Iran supplying oil to China? Maybe we can use that as a way to give Bibi the war he wants.

      • @Sceptic…

        Yes, I agree, it is all very suspicious.

        That said, at the very least, the evidence of the conspiracy keeps growing, and, that so, I think those complicit have the desire to look like they were on the side of good all along.

        They know America is a forgiving country with a very very short attention span.

  12. Neoliberalism has failed. They got to crash the economy to place the blame on others (the virus, the Chinese, cyber-pandemic, firesale event). You just can not have Klaus Schwab, the World Economic Forum and the great reset blamed for the virus, even though they are guilty as hell. We must blame the innocent Chinese who have nuclear weapons and a million man army and then you add to the fact Tiananmen square was an intelligence fraud that never actually happened and we have been antagonizing the Chinese over over lies, and the table is being set for war.

    Oh and by the way Google is a member of the World Economic forum, understand why you are being censored??

  13. “Tiananmen square was an intelligence fraud that never actually happened”:

    Tiananmen Square was an attempt to destabilize and overthrow communism in China (“bring freedom and democracy”) immediately following the successful overthrow of Russia, but the Chinese were not easily fooled.

  14. That’s what you all; media, politicians intel agencies etc., get for spending the last two decades obsessed that those evil Muslims who attacked us on 9-11while we were minding our own business, were now behind every rock coming to take us over cause our women don’t wear head scarves!

  15. Real science says covid is all BS but that won’t stop Fauci from from pulling another plandemic in the near future.
