COVID 19 Update

New Pentagon Papers Show COVID Is Bioweapon Made in China Paid for and Developed by US Scientists Who Then Covered It Up While Pushing Flawed Public Health Policies

by Lawrence Sellin
January 12, 2022

As described in a Gateway Pundit article last year, for over 15 years China has conducted biowarfare research on genetically-engineered viruses coupled to a vaccine-production program to protect its own military from those China-made bioweapons.

Hold on to that thought for a moment.

The just-released memorandum written on August 21, 2021, by U.S. Marine Major Joseph Murphy to the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) is highly revealing, both for what it says and for what it doesn’t say.

Major Murphy’s analysis is based on a $14.2 million research grant application “Project DEFUSE: Defusing the Threat of Bat-borne Coronaviruses” by now-disgraced scientist Peter Daszak, head of the EcoHealth Alliance, and submitted to the DoD’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), as well as other documents to which we do not yet have access.

Daszak’s research team included the “Bat Woman” Zheng-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina, Linfa Wang of the Duke University-National University of Singapore Medical School, Tonie Rocke of the United States Geological Survey National Wildlife Health Center in Wisconsin, and Jerome Unidad of the Palo Alto Research Center in California.

A summary of the memorandum:

1. “SARS-CoV-2 [COVID-19] is an American-created recombinant bat vaccine, or its precursor virus.”

The intent of Daszak’s DARPA proposal was to immunize bats in Chinese caves by spraying them with a vaccine based on coronaviruses that would likely “jump” from bats to humans, thereby, preventing a pandemic.

Sound far-fetched? Stand by, the details get worse.

The DEFUSE team would collect a large number of bat coronaviruses from Chinese caves, test them for their ability to infect humans, select those most likely to make the “jump” from bats to humans, analyze their structures and map evolutionary pathways.

Of course, the concept of a vaccine based on an evolutionary model, given the highly unpredictable nature of bat coronavirus mutations is, on its face, scientifically preposterous.

Yet, if they had stopped at that point and created a bat vaccine based on a natural bat coronavirus, the project would have been a failure, but at least there would not have been a COVID-19 pandemic.

They planned to isolate the spike protein, the component of coronaviruses that regulates infectively, and genetically manipulate it to make it more infectious to humans and insert it back into a bat coronavirus backbone as a virus precursor for making a bat vaccine.

The DEFUSE team writes about introducing “human specific” structures, like furin polybasic cleavage sites, where they do not occur naturally, highly indicative of bioweapon development and consistent with the Chinese military’s joint pathogen development/vaccine production program.

The DEFUSE proposal reads like a recipe for COVID-19.

Ultimately, the Daszak DEFUSE proposal was rejected because it included such dangerous “gain of function” research, the product of which also having dual use capability as a bioweapon.

Nevertheless, the money kept flowing from Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, through Peter Daszak, to China.

2. Without providing the evidence upon which his conclusion is based, Major Murphy stated that an incomplete precursor virus was released, presumably through a laboratory accident, in August 2019 and thereafter, again presumably, circulating and mutating within the Chinese population until reaching an epidemic-producing state in November-December 2019.

3. Major Murphy also questioned the DoD’s vaccine mandate, given the potential toxicity of mRNA vaccines based on the COVID-19 spike protein, as well as opposing the official suppression by the U.S. government of early intervention therapeutics, like ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, which his analysis found efficacious for treating coronavirus infections.

Based on a preponderance of evidence, COVID-19 was made in a laboratory in China as part of a biowarfare program, which was facilitated by U.S. government officials and U.S.-based scientists, who then tried to cover up their complicity and implemented flawed public health policies, all of which likely led to the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans.

Useful Idiots

 Preventing an Insurrection by Useful Idiots – A Response to Three Generals


Edward L. Haugland

Guest Editorial

January 7, 2022

This is a response to the ineptness and an obvious case of what Lenin called “useful idiots” advancing disinformation in an ongoing Domestic Cognitive War. Despite nearly 100 years of service to our country, these flag officers demonstrated in spades the cognitive dissonance[1] of our generals and admirals. They have been politicalized from the Obama years and have supported kinetic, unnecessary wars.  Their opinion piece in the Washington Post on 17 December 2021 left me stunned. I purposefully waited to craft a response – as we see a false narrative driven by their kind grow across the lemmings of the left as they revisit, recraft, and reengineer the history of 6 Jan ’21.

Their opinion is why I believe it is likely necessary to fire 90% of the generals and admirals, as they remain stuck in the group think the industrial-age mindset that puts us on a course for only one solution – a massive kinetic war – as if we have not seen enough insanity over the last twenty-plus years of ineptness as they fought a kinetic war when the real war was and is always cognitive.

The below bullets reflect excerpts from their opinion piece[2] – Opinion | Retired generals: The military must prepare now for a 2024 insurrection – The Washington Post

Well, the old saying, everyone has an opinion like everyone has a rear-exit shoot, fits the opinions of these three brown star award winners. I will explain the brown star award a bit later.

  • Paul D. Eaton is a retired U.S. Army major general with 33 years of service.
  • Antonio M. Taguba is a retired Army major general, with 34 years of service.
  • Steven M. Anderson is a retired Army brigadier general with 31 years of service.

That is 98 years of service, and an appropriate pivot to what happened in the US slightly over one hundred years ago – the length of their combined service. In 1918 we saw the communist revolution and the rise of a set of tyrants that slaughtered several hundred million people since then. Concurrently, we saw a pandemic, the Spanish Flu.

Many parallels here – beginning with the useful idiots who in 1918 enabled the communists, bought into their utopian society and then taught our children for decades about the wonderful successes of the Communist Soviet Union – yup, and they never acknowledged the massive slaughter by Lenin, Stalin, or Mao. They still do not. Much like these three generals will not admit the truth about what is going on in our country, and the abuses occurring before our eyes.

We also found ourselves in a world war and a pandemic that devastated humanity. Today, we have seen another pandemic from the China Flu and a different type of world war – a #CognitiveWar. The dirty secret that our Intelligence Community and DoD generals have not noticed – much like they did not notice the China Flu pandemic (truly the greatest intelligence failure ever – but so far ignored, despite making 9-11 look like a minor war given 700,000 US deaths to date and millions worldwide).

The #CognitiveWar[3], in truth, never ended. But our so-called experts thought so post the Cold War. The #CognitiveWar – an ideological war, for absolute power – today is occurring as in 1918 both at a domestic level and internationally – with both China and Russia. Again, today, these three generals who actively participated in the last 20 years of insanity – fighting a kinetic war in Afghanistan and Iraq, thinking that playing whack a mole, with moles breeding faster than they could whack, would win what was always a cognitive war – an ideological war. Such thinking requires a paradigm change[4].

So, let us dissect what these useful idiots stated an article in the dying old paper the Washington Post.

  • First, they note “In short: We are chilled to our bones at the thought of a coup succeeding next time.”

While they refer to 6 Jan, I guess these three stooges slept through 2016-2020 as a false dossier paid for by an opposing candidate, along with the CIA, DNI, FBI, DOJ, and Congress were used to undermine and attempt a coup of a duly elected President by falsely claiming “Russian Collusion” while ignoring the outright collusion amongst the leaders of our national security apparatus – not to mention the many who perjured themselves, the dozen-plus FBI and DOJ senior executive who got fired or demoted, or the two false impeachments based on the lies.  So, they got “chilled to their bones” on 6 Jan, but not from a massive overreach of fraud, deceit, and abuse by hundreds of members of our IC and national security?

  • The signs of potential turmoil in our armed forces are there. On Jan. 6, a disturbing number of veterans and active-duty members of the military took part in the attack on the Capitol.

Really, with little to no proof of more than a handful of miscreants these so-called defenders of democracy use a broad brush to paint thousands of patriots as “attacking” the capitol. They are liars. But of course, their actions reflect those of Mussolini Milley and Autistic Austin who quickly prostrated themselves to the woke in calling for a full review to find the ‘extremists” in our military (meaning conservatives) while completely ignoring the massive destruction and ongoing violence and murder by those the democrats applauded, funded, and promoted – the Marxists, communists, BLM and Antifa fascists.

  • The potential for a total breakdown of the chain of command along partisan lines — from the top of the chain to squad level — is significant should another insurrection occur.

Not as bad as the breakdown of Mussolini Milley circumventing the chain by demanding military report to him on use of any nuclear codes while coddling the Chinese with a call about telling them he would warn them ahead of time is we were to attack – both done outside of the chain. And so we saw this leftist apologize for standing with President Trump as he tried to show resolve against massive unrest, anarchy, looting and arson (church burning next to the white house), and riots threatening the white house. Why Milley hasn’t resigned is the big question. He and Autistic Austin have in less than nine months driven perception of the military as most trusted to the lowest level of public trust in 60 years (since the last democrats fought another cognitive war thinking kinetics would win – called Vietnam).

  • All service members take an oath to protect the U.S. Constitution. But in a contested election, with loyalties split, some might follow orders from the rightful commander in chief, while others might follow the Trumpian loser.

Really, wow, so much trust in your fellow soldiers, sailors, and marines! To me, as supposed military leaders, this speaks to these gentlemen’s ineptness, lack of trust, and lack of belief in their own oaths. To me, this speaks to the mindset of why I resigned from the USAF in 1991 because their tone suggests they were more interested in chasing stars than demonstrating integrity. To such misguided goes my not so honorable award – the brown star award – as it speaks to kissing up to the backside to get ahead by being corrupt, complicit, compliant, or complacent vice showing integrity[5].

  • But the military cannot wait for elected officials to act. The Pentagon should immediately order a civics review for all members — uniformed and civilian — on the Constitution and electoral integrity. There must also be a review of the laws of war and how to identify and deal with illegal orders. And it must reinforce “unity of command” to make perfectly clear to every member of the Defense Department to whom they answer. No service member should say they did not understand whom to take orders from during a worst-case scenario.

Amazing! All I can really say here is ditto to the above. Where have these three stooges been their whole career, this is basic education 101 in the military and the only action they recommend that I agree with. But again, the above is common sense, drilled into service people daily, but apparently not during the brown star award winners’ tours. Upsetting is an understatement – but their bias and true intent are shown in their next recommendation.

  • …all military branches must undertake more intensive intelligence work at all installations. The goal should be to identify, isolate and remove potential mutineers; guard against efforts by propagandists who use misinformation to subvert the chain of command.

The essence to capture from this recommendation is two-fold. First, it speaks to ensuring a group thinks that is profoundly disturbing and akin to“suggesting” re-education camps and distribution of little red books (like Mao’s). Second, how in fact do they define a mutineer? Refer to groupthink? These three so-called men of integrity said absolutely nothing about a four-year coup against a conservative president – but suddenly found their manly pants vice mom jeans – and call for those who do not think like them to be isolated and removed. The Rocket Man, Xi, Putin and others must be smiling knowing they have such kindred spirits in the US armed forces. Only a few more indoctrination lessons on white rage – and we can all sing the praises of our next great leader! But I digress, let us go to their last “stellar” recommendation.

  • Finally, the Defense Department should war-game the next potential post-election insurrection or coup attempt to identify weak spots.

We did, it happened on 6 Jan, and the chain of command, the response, and others worked as it should have in a constitutional democracy – less the hyperbole and BS propaganda whores who ignored the facts. Remember, the Speaker of the House Pelosi ignored the Commander in Chiefs’ strong suggestion to the pre-deploy military to ensure no violence. She ignored the pleas from the Capitol Police. She and the media and the likes of these three stooges condemned Trump’s use of a few hundred militaries to stop the massive violence, looting arson, and assaults occurring in Washington D.C. But then, she deployed an armored division of 25,000 troops, barbed wire fencing, and tanks.

In closing, these three gents – thanks for their service in the military, where they should keep their focus – demonstrate if nothing else why we need to overhaul our DoD and get away from the 1% as if these are the type of leaders who’ve educated and lead our men and women – then we see a blatant lack of trust in their efforts by them, a true lack of understanding of the political atmosphere, and too strong a willingness to become part of the lemmings of the left – or useful idiots – vice acting with integrity.

That’s my opinion piece in rebuttal. The key point to understand is that these three, like Pelosi and the democrats, want to focus on a small set of miscreants, as we watch them avoid addressing two-plus years of anarchy, mass murder, looting, assaults that they continue to applaud, support and push via defunding our policy, weaponizing our DOJ and FBI, and then holding propaganda sessions with their biased media lemmings.

The old saying duty, honor, country still means something. Obviously, these three forgot what that means, what they learned, or what they should have been teaching.

This article reflects my opinion – respectfully.

Another Good Marine Speaking Out!

An excellent summary and sober request for answers were presented in a respectful way.
The same questions should be asked by all forced to inject Emergency Use Only Vaccines which have proved largely ineffective in stopping the spread of C19.
Despite Biden/Fauci lies only one vaccine Pfizer’s Comirnaty has been fully approved and is not available in the US.
Where is the risk/benefit analysis for a military population?
There is no informed consent, the only choice is to submit or suffer consequences.

CCP Continues to Bleed America of Biotechnology

EXCLUSIVE: Chinese Communist Party Scientists in the U.S. are Bleeding America of Vital Biotechnology
by Lawrence Sellin and Anna Chen
December 28, 2021
In a November 21, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, we described China’s colonization of U.S. research programs.
Through a process we call “scientific chain migration,” there has been a massive infiltration of U.S. research laboratories by successive waves of scientists from the People’s Republic of China, many of whom came from China’s People’s Liberation Army.
That process was initiated in 1979 in an agreement between President Jimmy Carter and Chinese Communist Party leader Deng Xiaoping, a program which was expanded by Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

A cornerstone of the agreement was the U.S. taxpayer-funded China-United States Biochemistry Examination and Application (CUSBEA) that involved over 60 U.S. universities.

As a result, thousands of Chinese students and scholars began flooding into the United States, many obtaining permanent positions and becoming U.S. citizens., but maintaining allegiance to the Chinese Communist Party.

One such scientist, who apparently has maintained his loyalty to the Chinese Communist Party for twenty-five years, is Xiaodong Wang.

Xiaodong Wang was born in Wuhan, China and obtained a B.S. degree in biology from Beijing Normal University in 1985.

He was one of the original recipients of the CUSBEA awards, through which he received a Ph.D. in 1991 from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.

Xiaodong Wang subsequently rose to the rank of Professor at UT Southwestern Medical Center and was elected a member of U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

In 2006, perhaps not unexpectedly, given his future plans, Xiaodong Wang received the $1 million Shaw Prize in Life Science and Medicine given under the auspices of Sir Run Run Shaw, a Hong Kong film producer and chairman of Television Broadcasts Limited, the largest Chinese program producer in the world.

In 2010, Xiaodong Wang became Director of the National Institute of Biological Sciences in Beijing.

Featured on Chinese national television, Xiaodong Wang was identified as a Chinese Communist Party “Thousand Talents Program” scientist and was personally welcomed back to China by Yuanchao Li, Head of the Organization Department of the Chinese Communist Party at the time, who later became Vice President of China in 2013.

Not all Chinese scientists working in the U.S. have fared so well in terms of their links to Communist China.

This year, Yijun Ruan, a scientist from the Jackson Laboratory was investigated by the FBI for failing to disclose financial affiliations with Chinese research institutions when requesting grant funding from the U.S. government.

Yijun Ruan was listed as the primary investigator on 17 Jackson Laboratory research projects that received over $15 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health from 2014 through 2020.

Another Jackson Laboratory employee, Xuefeng Zhang, a graduate of Tsinghua University, may also have potential conflicts of interest, being listed as an employee of the Chinese companies Noventi Biopharmaceuticals and Huiying Medical Technology.

Ironically, the Jackson Laboratory, the world’s source for more than 8,000 strains of genetically defined mice and home of the Mouse Genome Informatics database, has been aggressively pursuing collaborative relationships with institutions in China, but apparently got burned in the process.

The Jackson Laboratory filed a suit in September 2017, alleging that Nanjing University in China was stealing its technology, breeding and reselling a strain of mice that the Jackson Laboratory had developed.

No one should be surprised.

In a November 6, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, we described how Xiang Gao, who was trained at the Jackson Laboratory, reproduced a “Jackson Laboratory” at Nanjing University as its Director of the Institute of Model Animals.

Generals Creating False Flag!

Left-wing Generals Creating False Flag Insurrection Scenario

MG Paul Vallely, US Army (Ret)

Chairman – The Stand Up America US Foundation

and Legacy National Security Group


December 22, 2021

Three retired US Army Generals warned of an insurrection or even civil war if the results of the 2024 presidential election were not accepted by some in the military. They wrote that they were “increasingly concerned” about the 2024 election and the “potential for lethal chaos inside our military.” The Generals highlighted the “disturbing number” of veterans and active-duty members of the military that took part in the January 6 attack on the Capitol by Trump supporters – more than 1 in 10 of those charged had a service record.

They outlined a possible situation in which, after the 2024 election, some service members might pledge loyalty to a “Trumpian loser” who refuses to concede defeat and tries to lead a shadow government. “Under such a scenario, it is not outlandish to say a military breakdown could lead to civil war,” they wrote. “The idea of rogue units organizing among themselves to support the ‘rightful’ commander in chief cannot be dismissed,” they said.

They said there was also work to be done by the military, such as reviewing how to deal with illegal orders and undertaking intelligence work to identify and remove potential mutineers. The military should also work to identify how misinformation spreads in the ranks. The Generals also suggested that the Defense Department “war-game” possible post-election scenarios to identify weak spots and put in place “safeguards.”

When I read this release by these obvious Obama Generals, it became apparent to me that this was a set-up, false flag operation directed by the US shadow government operated by Barack Obama and his minions.

In previous articles, we wrote that Obama purged the military of some 120 senior officers and “stabbed the Military in the back”. Why would three retired Generals even propose such a notion when there is no proof of such a movement.

It sounds to me that the “white rage” Chairman of the Joint Chief of Staff General Milley coached them. The only white rage that many of us saw was the white rage of General Milley. In addition, this is a deception campaign orchestrated by the left-wing members of the Biden administration.

Nothing has weakened the U.S. military more versus our enemies or divided the military more than along racial, ethnic, gender and political lines than the Woke, equity, diversity, inclusion “white rage” policies and the vaccine mandates of the Biden regime, all of which are destroying readiness and the unity of the force about which the three generals seem so concerned.

The actions proposed by the three Generals are reminiscent of Stalin’s purge of the Red Army (May-June 1937) that took place immediately before the “mass operations” against the kulaks and other “anti-Soviet elements” that included national minorities, which began on 30 July 1937 and continued to the autumn of 1938, known as the Great Terror.


Purge of the Red Army was a prerequisite for Stalin’s wider action against perceived enemies within the Soviet population by initial subjugation and politicization of the military.”


Likewise, the three Generals appear to be proposing a similar purge of US military as a prelude to violation of the Posse Comitatus Act, that is, the use of federal troops to enforce actions dictated by a Democrat one-party subsequent to another rigged election.


Citing the need for the preservation of the military chain of command, the three Generals criticized recent decisions of the Oklahoma National Guard.


Recently, and perhaps more worrying, Brig. Gen. Thomas Mancino, the commanding general of the Oklahoma National Guard, refused an order from President Biden mandating that all National Guard members be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Mancino claimed that while the Oklahoma Guard is not federally mobilized, his commander in chief is the Republican governor of the state, not the president.


They continue:


In this context, with our military hobbled and divided, U.S. security would be crippled. Any one of our enemies could take advantage by launching an all-out assault on our assets or our allies. The surrender in Afghanistan gave our enemies, like China, a picture of a hobbled and divided US military that is not focusing on readiness, unity, and training.


For three Generals so concerned about unity, they appear to have no objection to the Biden’s Administration imposition on the US Military of the divisive Critical Race Theory or the morale and force destroying vaccine mandates, both of which weakens our ability to defend America against our enemies.


We have a solid group of Retired Generals, Admirals and other senior officers who are challenging the WOKE government and its impact on our blessed Military. When we see politicalized senior officers advocating left wing politics and politicians and their policies, we pause and know that we must take all the necessary actions to offset their efforts. General Patton would turn over in his grave seeing some of our officers joining Progressives to dismantle America and “Change America Forever!”

God Bless America. We will overcome!
