When it comes to biological agents, there is absolutely no difference between a bio-research laboratory and a bio-warfare laboratory.
And perhaps the greatest example of the lack of difference can be found at Communist China’s Institute of Virology, now under the direction of People's Liberation Army Major General Chen Wei, and located in Wuhan, the largest city in Hubei Province in the People's Republic of China.
Where two Americans, Doctors Anthony Fauci and Peter Daszak, conspired to direct U.S. government funding into a gain of function research program that saw the creation, testing, and accidental(?) release of a bat virus that was artificially enhanced to attack humans.
Why Communist China? One, it was the source of the original bat viruses; two, it had none of the U.S. government’s restrictions on research meant to protect humans from dangerous pathogens; and three, it was widely known that Communist China was very generous when it came to financially supporting individual scientists, institutions, and selected dual-use research programs.
As for overt weaponization, nothing other than highly-mobile travelers and negligent governments that refused to curtail travel were needed to spread the highly infectious virus around the globe.
Both doctors knew the risks and restrictions associated with such dangerous research. They proceeded with the virus engineering that was the proximate cause of a global pandemic and mass loss of life – a crime against humanity that is likely to go unpunished.
Fauci: Yes, it’s dangerous – but worthwhile…
Anthony S. Fauci: Research on Highly Pathogenic H5N1 Influenza Virus: The Way Forward
However, the issue that has been intensely debated is whether knowledge obtained from these experiments could inadvertently affect public health in an adverse way, even in nations multiple time zones away.
Putting aside the specter of bioterrorism for the moment, consider this hypothetical scenario: an important gain-of-function experiment involving a virus with serious pandemic potential is performed in a well-regulated, world-class laboratory by experienced investigators, but the information from the experiment is then used by another scientist who does not have the same training and facilities and is not subject to the same regulations. In an unlikely but conceivable turn of events, what if that scientist becomes infected with the virus, which leads to an outbreak and ultimately triggers a pandemic? Many ask reasonable questions: given the possibility of such a scenario—however remote—should the initial experiments have been performed and/or published in the first place, and what were the processes involved in this decision?
[OCS: Putting aside the fact that Communist China does not abide by U.S laws and restrictions, one might ask why dangerous “gain of function” research was performed in an offshore laboratory known to have significant procedural issues in handling dangerous pathogens?]
Scientists working in this field might say—as indeed I have said—that the benefits of such experiments and the resulting knowledge outweigh the risks. It is more likely that a pandemic would occur in nature, and the need to stay ahead of such a threat is a primary reason for performing an experiment that might appear to be risky. However, we must respect that there are genuine and legitimate concerns about this type of research, both domestically and globally. We cannot expect those who have these concerns to simply take us, the scientific community, at our word that the benefits of this work outweigh the risks, nor can we ignore their calls for greater transparency, their concerns about conflicts of interest, and their efforts to engage in a dialog about whether these experiments should have been performed in the first place. Those of us in the scientific community who believe in the merits of this work have the responsibility to address these concerns thoughtfully and respectfully. <Source>

What Ukrainian labs?
One might ask about those “unknown” Ukrainian biological laboratories of grave concern and recently revealed by Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, Victoria Nuland? Especially those associated with Hunter Biden, George Soros, and the corrupt Biden crime family. No matter how much the government claims that the deadly pathogens were used to develop vaccines to counter bioweapons – those same biological agents remain the basis of bioweapons.
The next level of research is even scarier…
The controversial quest to make a 'contagious' vaccine
Imagine a cure that’s as contagious as the disease it fights—a vaccine that could replicate in a host’s body and spread to others nearby, quickly and easily protecting a whole population from microbial attacks. That’s the goal of several teams around the world who are reviving controversial research to develop self-spreading vaccines.
Their hope is to reduce infectious disease transmission among wild animals, thereby lowering the risk that harmful viruses and bacteria can jump from wildlife to humans as many experts believe happened with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caused the COVID-19 pandemic.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 60 percent of all known infectious diseases and 75 percent of new or emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic. Scientists cannot predict why, when, or how new zoonotic diseases will emerge. But when they do, these diseases are often deadly and costly to control. What’s more, many researchers predict that climate change, biodiversity loss, and population growth will accelerate their spread.
Vaccines are a key tool for preventing diseases from spreading, but wild animals are difficult to vaccinate because each one must be located, captured, vaccinated, and released. Self-spreading vaccines offer a solution.
Advances in genomic technology and virology, and a better understanding of disease transmission, have accelerated work that began in the 1980s to make genetically engineered viruses that spread from one animal to another, imparting immunity to disease rather than infection. <Source>
Oh! Shit! It’s here in California…
Genetically-Modified Mosquitoes, Funded By Bill Gates, Approved for Release in US
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has just approved a plan to release millions of Bill Gates-funded genetically-modified mosquitos into parts of the US.
The disturbing plan, which was created by the British biotech firm Oxitec, which is bankrolled by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is apparently intended to combat the spread of diseases such as Zika, yellow fever and dengue.
While the EPA approved the plan, the company still needs approval from the individual states. However, there has been some criticism.
“When you disrupt an ecological system whether it’s a small disruption or a big disruption, you’re going to have an impact,” said Dana Perls, a program manager at Friends of the Earth, a Washington, D.C.-based environmental advocacy group.
“Once you release these mosquitos into the environment, you cannot recall them,” she said. “This could, in fact, create problems that we don’t have already.”
Perls says that without confirmed data about the rate of disease transmission from the Aedes aegypti mosquito, it’s unclear if the genetically-modified mosquitos will behave the way Oxitec predicts. <Source>

EPA Permits Experimental Release of 2.5 Billion Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes in California and Florida
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has authorized the “experimental use” and release of 2.5 billion genetically engineered (GE) mosquitoes in Florida and California by the British-based firm Oxitec. While the goal of eliminating disease-carrying mosquitoes is an important public health challenge, public opinion has been consistently against the use of these animals, with nearly 240,000 individuals opposing a pilot program in the Florida Keys. Health and environmental advocates have a range of concerns with Oxitec’s approach, including the size of its latest experiment, lack of publicly verifiable efficacy data, and availability of alternative management practices not requiring GE mosquitoes. <Source>

What we know:
(1) The government, especially the corrupt Biden regime, cannot be trusted to tell the truth about medical research and has been infiltrated by “population control” and de-growth environmentalists that celebrate a higher death rate. Especially among no longer productive senior citizens on pensions and who may require expensive end-of-life medical care.
(2) The government’s experts, especially those heading government agencies, appear to have undisclosed conflicts of interests.
(3) The government colludes with the media moguls and tech tyrants to censor or cancel individuals with a contrarian view of the regime’s narrative.
(4) The idea that our government will perform dangerous biological research elsewhere in the world does not protect Americans from biological accidents any farther away than 48 hours by plane.
(5) The fact that nobody is held accountable for mistakes and mass murder is deeply troubling and is not a deterrent to further dangerous behaviors.
(6) We can no longer trust egomaniacal individuals like Bill Gates and the other tech tyrants to behave ethically.
We are just beginning to find the extent to which the Biden regime has been fudging the numbers, hiding documents, and telling lies about a vaccine that is less effective than advertised and may be harmful to the immune system.
- According to a September 2021 analysis, based on conservative, best-case scenarios, the COVID shots have killed five times more seniors (65+) than the infection.
- In younger people and children, the risk associated with the COVID shot, compared to the risk of COVID-19, is bound to be even more pronounced.
- Data show higher vaccination rates do not translate into lower COVID-19 case rates <Source>
We are so screwed.
