According to a Houston Chronicle report, James Le Duc, the director of the Galveston National Laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB), is of the opinion that an accident in the Wuhan lab could have kicked off the global pandemic that everyone must now put up with.
“Accidents happen,” Le Duc, a former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention official, informed the Chronicle.
“You do your best to prevent it, and you prepare for an eventuality if it should happen. So all I can say is (the Wuhan lab) was built comparable to ours, with a whole series of redundant safety measures in place.” he continued.
“We did our best to share best practices so that they knew how to drive it and keep it safe. But it would be foolish to say there’s no risk, because there’s risk in everything.” Le Duc noted.
Le Duc was part of a team that provided training to staff in the Wuhan lab. He pointed out that China has a lack of experience when it comes to establishing biocontainment labs with tight security standards when compared to the U.S.
“I can say that this was a brand-new laboratory that was working at a level of biocontainment that they had not worked at in the past, so it’s not surprising that they don’t have a whole lot of people with experience in it,” stated Le Duc.
Regarding the current investigations into the potential lab origin of the pandemic, Le Duc viewed it as “speculation”, but urged that “I think it’s very appropriate that people look into this because that’s where some of the work is done.”
“I think the Chinese government has done themselves and the global community a big disservice by not being more transparent as to what’s going on, but that’s a whole different set of issues.” Le Duc opined.
The scientist’s comments came after a world renowned Russian microbiologist claimed that the novel virus responsible for the Wuhan virus pandemic was the consequence of Wuhan scientists doing “absolutely crazy things” in their lab.
Dr. Peter Chumakov of the Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology and Russian Academy of Sciences believes that the Wuhan scientists’ attempts to create the Wuhan virus was not with malicious intent. However, Chumakov stated that the scientists added “inserts in the genome, which gave the virus the ability to infect human cells.”
“There are several inserts, that is, substitutions of the natural sequence of the genome, which gave it special properties,” Chumakov highlighted, suggesting that the Wuhan lab was working on a vaccine for HIV.
“I think that an investigation will nevertheless be initiated, as a result of which new rules will be developed that regulate the work with the genomes of such dangerous viruses,” the Russian scientist concluded.
The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters
Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.
Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters.
Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits.
He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.
The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:
Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…
By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.
For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats.
Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another.
In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election.
Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
