Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a former virology specialist for the Hong Kong’s School of Public Health forced to flee to the US to protect her safety, has claimed that COVID-19 was “created in a military lab” as a possible bioweapon.
Li-Meng told the Taiwan News Agency Lude Press that she “had clearly assessed that the virus came from a Chinese Communist Party military lab” and the “Wuhan wet market was just used as a decoy.”
She claims she went to her superiors to report this knowledge, she was laughed off and ignored. She believed that if she went to the high levels of the Communist Party, her life could be in danger. Many scientists who were the early whistleblowers about the COVID-19 pandemic were silenced or mysteriously disappeared by the ruthless Chinese government.
“I knew that once I spoke up, I could disappear at any time, just like all the brave protesters in Hong Kong,” she said. “I could disappear at any time. Even my name would no longer exist.”
Even though she understood “what kinds of things the Chinese government would do” by growing up under communist tyranny, Li-Meng still never would have guessed “how low [the CCP] would stoop.” She hopes that her claims about COVID-19’s origin will accelerate “the outside world’s understanding of the regime and helping the Chinese people to overthrow it.”
“The China government refused to let overseas experts, including ones in Hong Kong, do research in China. So I turned to my friends to get more information,” Li-Meng said.
Li-Meng said that the Hong Kong School of Public Health initially told her to continue her investigation but later told her to “keep silent and be careful.” They released a statement confirming that Li-Meng is no longer employed at the university but would not give any further details.
Big League Politics has reported on alleged reports that COVID-19 is a bioweapon released by the Chinese either deliberately or by accident from a virus:
An Austrian study conducted by vaccine researcher Nikolai Petrovsky has indicated that SARS-CoV-2, a coronavirus strain that causes COVID-19, contains a “sign of human intervention.”
Petrovsky, who does research for Flinders University in Austria, has come to the conclusion that the virus was optimized to penetrate human cells rather than animal cells. Barring some “remarkable coincidence,” Petrovsky believes this means the virus was engineered to attack humans.
Lifesite News, who broke the story, reported that the scientists “used a version of the novel coronavirus collected in the earliest days of the outbreak and applied computer models to test its capacity to bind to certain cell receptor enzymes, called “ACE2,” that allow the virus to infect human and animal cells to varying degrees of efficacy.”
Scientists discovered that “the novel coronavirus most powerfully binds with human ACE2, and with variously lesser degrees of effectiveness with animal versions of the receptor.” They believe this means SARS-CoV-2 “became specialized for human cell penetration by living previously in human cells, quite possibly in a laboratory.”
The study explains its conclusions by stating that “a virus would be expected to have highest affinity for the receptor in its original host species, e.g. bat, with a lower initial binding affinity for the receptor of any new host, e.g. humans. However, in this case, the affinity of SARS-CoV-2 is higher for humans than for the putative original host species, bats, or for any potential intermediary host species.”
The study notes a “possibility which still cannot be excluded is that SARSCoV-2 was created by a recombination event that occurred inadvertently or consciously in a laboratory handling coronaviruses, with the new virus then accidentally released into the local human population.”
Petrovsky believes the virus was cultured to evolve over time, meaning that this could have been many years in the making.
“Our and other analyses of the genomic sequence of the virus do not reveal any artificial gene inserts that would be the hallmark of a gene jockey, genetic engineers who manipulate or even create viruses by splicing in artificial inserts into their genome.” Petrovsky said.
Baghdad Bombings Could Give Biden Administration Excuse to Increase US Presence in Iraq
The first major Baghdad bombings in three years happen on Joe Biden’s first full day as president.
Two suicide bombings rocked a marketplace in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad on Thursday, killing at least 32 people and wounding over 100. As of now no one has claimed responsibility, although Iraqi military leaders suspect the Islamic State, the paramilitary group often referred to as “ISIS” in years past.
Major General Tahsin al-Khafaji said that the first suicide bomber shouted in the marketplace that he was not feeling well, and when a group of people drew near him, he detonated an explosive belt he was wearing. Not long after that, a second suicide bomber then detonated his own belt several feet away.
This was Baghdad’s first major bombing in three years, and interestingly enough it came on the first full day of Joe Biden’s presidency. Even the Associated Press pointed out that “many questioned the timing of the attack.”
“The US-led coalition recently ceased combat activities and is gradually drawing down its troop presence in Iraq,” the article reads.
The Jerusalem Post also writes that the bombings provide Biden with “an early opportunity to show US support for Iraq.”
“Biden has said that the US is ‘back’ and the world can expect the US to care again about foreign policy and work multilaterally to solve problems,” said the Post.
All this leads many to believe that the Biden administration will once again increase the US presence in Iraq, thereby dragging us deeper into a situation that the Trump administration had been eager to get out of.
This is not the first time that a Middle Eastern tragedy has coincided with a change of power. In March of 2017, two months after Donald Trump’s inauguration, the Assad government in Syria allegedly used chemical weapons against its own people, leading to international outcry and the Trump administration’s unilateral decision to launch an April 7 missile strike on the Syrian government’s Shayrat Airbase.
Bombings and attacks have also been known to happen shortly after the US announces commitments to scale back military operations.
Perhaps groups like the Islamic State feel emboldened by such announcements and power changes. In any case, the military-industrial complex often uses such attacks to justify never-ending involvement in the Middle East. As of now, however, it still remains to be seen what they will do as a result of Thursday’s bombings, if anything. Fingers crossed that it’s not much.
