The unfolding of the COVID-19 pandemic left many unanswered, or unsatisfactorily answered, questions. Why were effective drugs banned while a hypothetical vaccine was promoted? Why the sudden concern of the authorities for “saving lives”? Why the same measures across dozen of countries? Why the imposition of lock-downs when detection and treatment worked better? Why was a virus whose fatality rate is comparable to a seasonal flu, hyped to such an extent? Is SARS-CoV-2 a natural virus, or was it created in a laboratory?
The present article aims to answer those questions but more importantly to decipher the true motives behind the global coronavirus show.
Authorities and Life
All the measures taken by the authorities relative to the COVID-19 pandemic centered around one motive: “saving lives”. This motive is in line with the very purpose of the authorities, whose mandate is to protect us, or so we’ve been led to believe.
That’s the hallmark of progressive thinking, year after year, thanks to human rights, democracy, humanitarianism, humanism and technological progress, barbarity and death are becoming a thing of the past. We are now “kinder and gentler” as Steven Pinker puts it:
Cruelty as entertainment, human sacrifice to indulge superstition, slavery as a labor-saving device, conquest as the mission statement of government, genocide as a means of acquiring real estate, torture and mutilation as routine punishment, the death penalty for misdemeanors and differences of opinion, assassination as the mechanism of political succession, rape as the spoils of war, pogroms as outlets for frustration, homicide as the major form of conflict resolution — all were unexceptionable features of life for most of human history. But, today, they are rare to nonexistent in the West, far less common elsewhere than they used to be, concealed when they do occur, and widely condemned when they are brought to light.
– Steven Pinker, A History of Violence.
The problem is, this idyllic interpretation doesn’t stand up to hard, tangible facts. The table on the right lists conflicts of the 20th Century and their number of victims. The following table is extracted from David Berlinski’s book The Devil’s Delusion. The original table is 3-pages long, so I reduced it to mention only those conflicts with 1 million+ casualties.
Even with this limitation, the total number of deaths amounts to more than 177 million. In addition, Devil’s Delusion was published in 2008, so it doesn’t list the recent conflicts in countries like Iraq, Libya, Ukraine or Syria.
How do we reconcile the alleged progress with these millions of avoidable deaths? To maintain the illusion of “gentler and kinder” behavior, the authorities attempt to put a positive spin on wars, labeling them, “war for peace”, “war for democracy”, “war against communism” “war against terrorism”.
But these wars have nothing to do with the misleading slogans. They killed millions of innocent people, they were unjust, and often led to regimes worse that the ones they replaced. Do you remember Iraq’s WMDs, 9/11 and Bin Laden conspiring from his remote Afghani cave, the attacks against Qaddafi and Assad while the leaders of Saudi Arabia and Qatar (two of the most regressive regimes in the world) are protected for decades, the snipers in Maidan, the bogus incident in the Gulf of Tonkin, the anthrax that was used to justify the first Iraq war, anthrax that actually came from Fort Detrick?
The 20th Century tells the story of millions of innocent people sacrificed by the authorities on the altar of greed, lies, propaganda and deception. The facts are here, they are stubborn and they scream: “No, the authorities couldn’t care less about saving lives”.
The same applies to the humanitarian sphere. Hunger kills 9 million people every year. That’s 30 times more than SARS-CoV-2 and its alleged 365,000 deaths (the number of coronavirus deaths is being grossly exaggerated – we’ll deal with this point further down). It would cost between $7 and $249 billion to eradicate hunger. Meanwhile, The U.S. has already thrown more than $6 trillion at the coronavirus crisis. That is 24 times the highest estimate for the cost of eradicating hunger in the whole world.
The epidemiology sphere tells the same story. For decades, malaria has been killing about 500,000 people every year (mostly children) while cheap and effective drugs are available. Solving the malaria problem would cost about US$ 4 billion a year. In just 3 months, the US government has spent 1,500 times more on coronavirus than the cost of dealing with malaria.
In the same vein, every year the seasonal flu kills between 300,000 and 500,000 individuals without alarming the authorities whatsoever.
Obviously, the authorities don’t give a damn about the millions dying every year because of the malaria, hunger or the flu. So why this sudden concern about allegedly “saving lives”? What is the true motive?
Authorities And Control
While the concern of the authorities for “saving lives” is dubious at best, their thirst for control is obvious. The past years revealed a staggering increase in CCTVs, speedcams, mass spying on citizens, tracking applications, access to personal phones and email data, increased use of subcutaneous microchips, biometric IDs, face-recognition technologies, endless airport “security” procedures, a ban on cash in the interest of financial tracking etc. All these measures came with a proportional shrinking of personal liberties.
Surveillance is only part of the control agenda. Legal pressure is another one, through the proliferation of norms, regulations, treaties, laws, decrees, certifications and amendments enacted at local, state, federal and supranational levels leading to the control of every details of our lives. The EU is famous for having enacted some of the most absurd regulations:
– the ban of hair dryers, toasters and kettles.
– illegal for people to eat pet horses but they are still allowed to eat other types of horses.
– children under eight cannot blow up balloons
– ban on the sale of incandescent light bulbs because they were seen as not energy efficient enough.
– Illegal to make Stilton cheese in the village of Stilton
– banned drink manufactures from claiming that water can prevent dehydration
Such regulations defy common sense and clearly are not in the interest of the “greater good” which suggests that ultimately it’s about control for the sake of control.
Hand in hand with the legal pressure comes an overbearing bureaucracy manifesting in a multiplication of agencies requiring mountains of paper to simply own a house, a car, a gun, a business,
Increase in surveillance, regulation, bureaucracy are the symptoms of the same growing control exerted by the authorities, which leads to a sense of oppression among the masses, and, sooner or later, this oppression triggers rebellion.
The authorities are very aware and afraid of insurgencies. Any popular movement that threatens their power will be stopped by infiltration, subversion, propaganda, attrition and, if necessary, by sheer violence and assassinations. This last point demonstrates that, despite their claimed concern for “saving lives”, in order to keep their control the authorities are actually willing to do the contrary and sacrifice the lives of countless citizens.
Genuine popular uprisings have always been responded to with violence by authorities. From Ireland’s Bloody Sunday – when British soldiers shot 26 unarmed civilians during a protest march against internment without trial – to the USA where Martin Luther King’s civil rights movement faced the long hot summer of 67 when police officers shot at black civilians and suspects indiscriminately and killed 43 people.
But that was decades ago, and since then authorities have greatly improved their methods of repression, that’s why we have witnessed over the past years a militarization of police forces, with helicopters, tanks, machine guns and snipers. The mission of police forces is to “serve and protect”, not the citizens, but the interest of the authorities. And make no mistake, the interests of authorities are usually in conflict with the interests of the people.
But we don’t have to go back decades to find examples of state violence. In France, the yellow vest movement has been going on for 18 months. It started with a popular opposition to an extra tax on fuel (fuel is already taxed at more than 60% in France). Millions joined the marches and a majority of citizens support the movement. The authorities responded the usual way, with rubber bullets, tear gas, flash bangs, batons, and water cannons. So far 24,000 Yellow Vests have been injured, 24 lost one eye, 5 lost an hand, one died. 4000 were arrested, 3000 were prosecuted, of whom 1000 received jail sentences.
This kind of hard-nosed state counterinsurgency tactic is, however, a risky approach because it can create heroes and martyrs and galvanize the people. A few genuine popular uprisings were successful, for example the counter coup that brought back Hugo Chavez to power in 2002. Physical violence only goes so far. Instead of controlling the bodies, it’s much more effective to control minds, because then you control the bodies indirectly. In this way, citizens can’t even think of the idea of rebellion.
Controlling minds is the ultimate dream of the authorities. A mankind comprised of slaves, complacent, hanging on the every word of government, agreeing to everying, accepting even the unacceptable. Robots that have shed any vesitage of true personality and independent thought or deed.
Dumbing Down The Population
The authorities have attempted and often succeeded to shape the human mind through various techniques. One way to control minds is through the information (lies and narratives) that is distilled into citizen’s minds: overexposure to mainstream media on paper and on screens, deep corruption of academia and research and, last but not least, the falling education standards combined with a growing propaganda increasingly tailored to the young.
Chemicals are another way to dumb down the population. For example the fluoridation of drinking water, which is known to lower IQ scores in children. In the same vein, there is an epidemic of autism (by 2040, it is estimated that 10% of children will be born with autism) associated with vaccination campaigns. Lead is another culprit which causes 10% of intellectual disabilities, its brain toxicity has been known for centuries. Despite that, lead is still found in tooth fillings, indoor plumbing, food, gasoline and water, like in Flint, Michigan.
And let’s not forget the boom in “recreational” drugs that can only have happened with the consent of the authorities. The so-called “wars on drugs” is a mere public relations campaign to maintain the illusion of good “authorities” and to eliminate traffickers who don’t toe the government line:
To an average American who witnesses the dismal spectacle of the narcotics traffic at the street level, it must seem inconceivable that the government could be implicated in the international drug trade. Unfortunately, American diplomats and CIA agents have been involved in the narcotics traffic at three levels:
(1) coincidental complicity by allying with groups actively engaged in the drug traffic;
(2) support of the traffic by covering up for known heroin traffickers and condoning their involvement;
(3) active engagement in the transport of opium and heroin.
– Alfred McCoy, The politics of Heroin: CIA complicity in the Global Drug Trade
Nevertheless, the population control methods listed above have limitations. Propaganda eventually collapses under the weight of its own contradictions, and chemical substances can usually be avoided (filtering, protection) or mitigated to a large extent (detox, antioxidant).
So, for the authorities, the fundamental question remains: how to implement a deep and irreversible mind control of the population? While propaganda or chemicals can have significant influence on the human organism, there is something much more fundamental that is, today, within reach of the long arm of government: our own genetic code. Our mind and our body are to a very large extent the product of our DNA. If you can properly modify someone’s genetic code, you can change the way they think ‘at the source’ so to speak. And one of the best ways to profoundly and durably modify human DNA is viruses.
The True Nature of Viruses
Viruses are one the oldest organisms, their presence attested to as far back as 550 MYA. They are also by far the most numerous organisms on our planet, with an estimated 1031 viruses in the oceans alone. That’s 10 trillion more than the estimated number of stars in the Universe (1021) Viruses are also, and by far, the most diverse organisms, with an estimated 100 million different types of viruses on Earth. For comparison, there are about 5,500 known mammalian species on our planet.
Despite this astounding seniority, diversity and sheer numbers, at the end of the 19th Century, Louis Pasteur fathered germ theory which limited germs (including viruses) to an exclusive pathogenic role: spreading disease, suffering and death.
This misleading theory prevailed until the advent of genetic research, which today suggests that the truth about viruses might very well be almost the opposite of what Pasteur claimed:
One of the most earth-shaking papers of this century was the publication of the human genome sequence. About half, possibly even two-thirds of the sequence are composed of more or less complete endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) and related retroelements (REs) […]. The origin of REs is being discussed as remnants of ancient retroviral germline infections that became evolutionarily fixed in the genome.
About 450,000 human ERV (HERV) elements constitute about 8% of the human genome consisting of hallmark retroviral elements like the gag, pol, env genes and flanking long terminal repeats (LTR) that act as promoters. Howard Temin, one of the discoverers of the reverse transcriptase, in 1985 already described endogenous retrovirus-like elements, which he estimated to about 10% of the human and mouse genome sequence.
The actual number is about 45% as estimated today. In some genes such as the Protein Kinase Inhibitor B (PKIB) gene we determined about 70% retrovirus-related sequences. Is there a limit? Could it have been 100%?
Our DNA code is literally made of viral sequences. This prevalence of viral sequences in human DNA is staggering even when only known virus sequences are taken into account. This omnipresence is confirmed by the numerous copies of the same viral sequence found all over the human genome:
humans, given the vast proliferation of insertion sites involving those 30 to 50 families of viruses, and the 200 or so subgroups. If, for example, we look at just the HERV clone 4-1 variant of the HERV-E family that was studied by Sekigawa in relation to SLE, the human genome contained 85 copies of the virus at various integration sites within different chromosomes.
– Frank Ryan, Virolution
In addition, most viral sequences are integrated in our non-coding genes. Coding genes are like musicians, who instead of producing sound produce proteins, which are the fundamental building blocks of all life forms. Non-coding genes play an even more fundamental role, they are like a director controlling the musicians, modulating the expression of coding genes.
The numerous viral sequences found in our DNA are not a genetically neutral archaism, it is now proven that endogenous viruses have beneficial effects on the host:
In 1996, Roy J Britten, of the California Institute of Technology, was able to list ten examples in which endogenous retroviral sequences helped regulate the expression of a useful gene. Seven of the ten examples were human.
– Frank Ryan, Virolution
Not only do endogenous viruses have beneficial effects, but it seems that their presence is even necessary for life forms to exist:
when Corrado Spadafora, the Italian researcher who has produced such pioneering work in cancer research, applied an anti-reverse transcriptase drug in this very early stage of embryogenesis in the mouse, all development ceased at the four-cell stage. It would appear that endogenous retroviruses are playing a very profound, if completely unknown, role at this early stage in mammalian embryogenesis.
– Frank Ryan, Virolution
The role of viruses is so prominent in human DNA, that some researchers are asking: “Are viruses our oldest ancestors?”
About the term “endogenous” used above: our ancestors were exposed to a new virus (exogenous = transmissible virus) and integrated the code of this virus into their very own DNA (endogenous = hereditary virus).
To use an analogy, viruses infusing new information into our genetic code is akin to a software update. From this perspective, diseases caused by exogenous viruses are the physical manifestation of the carrier struggles to adapt to this “update”. In rare cases death ensues, the computer is too old, is not ready for the change, unable to absorb the update. But as the Chinese saying goes, “a falling tree makes more noise than a growing forest”. In most cases, the update is successful and totally asymptomatic:
We explored non-human sequence data from whole-genome sequencing of blood from 8,240 individuals, none of whom were ascertained for any infectious disease.[…], we mapped sequences to 94 different viruses, including sequences from 19 human DNA viruses, proviruses and RNA viruses (herpesviruses, anelloviruses, papillomaviruses, three polyomaviruses, adenovirus, HIV, HTLV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, parvovirus B19, and influenza virus) in 42% of the study participants.
Usually, the exovirus is deactivated and integrated in our DNA painlessly, it has become an endogenous virus. The new viral information is stored in our ‘hard drive’ (our genome). This new information – sequences of endogenous virus integrated in our DNA – provides us with augmented complexity and functionality.
The above shows the prevalence of viruses in our genetic code and the vital role they play. This perspective provides a different spin on the on-going debate about whether viruses are life forms or not. Actually viruses seem more fundamental than even life itself, they are the information carriers (genetic codes) from which biological life stems. Viruses are more than life, they are the very source of life, they are the informational precursors, the initiators of life forms.
The Mind-Altering Virus
The above shows the fundamental role viruses play in the development and evolution of life, including human life. They shaped our bodies, our organs, our very own minds. From this perspective, it’s no surprise that endogenous viruses, and even exogenous viruses, have an influence on the host’s behavior.
There are a number of viruses known to alter the behavior of animal hosts. Rabies “hijacks” the brain and causes the host to be aggressive. Viruses from the family Baculoviridae induce in their hosts changes to both feeding behavior and environment selection. In horses, the Bornavirus is known to cause stupor, hyper-excitability, fearfulness, aggressiveness.
Viruses also alter behavior in humans:
Profound changes in behaviour are observed following infection of the central nervous system by some viruses. Irritability, insomnia, hyperactivity and learning disability are some of the behavioural disturbances that have been described in both humans and animals with central nervous system infection.
For example, viral encephalitis is commonly caused in humans by arboviruses including West Nile, herpes viruses and enteroviruses. Symptoms include irritability, lethargy and seizures. In humans, rabies causes delirium, abnormal behavior, hallucinations. Traces of the Bornavirus have been found in significant numbers of depressed and schizophrenic patients. Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis is caused by mutant measles viruses invading the brain. Symptoms include bizarre behavior, muscle jerks, seizures.
But there is no need to search for rare exotic viruses to find behavior-altering effects, or even positive behavior-altering effects. In 2010, Chris Reiber found evidence that a virus as mundane as the influenza virus alters people behavior by making them more sociable.
Since viruses are the active component of vaccine, it is no surprise that change in human social behavior have been observed in response to a common vaccine.
For decades, engineering viruses has been common practice. The active ingredient in most modern vaccines is a genetic sequence extracted from a virus (the sequence that is considered as immunogenic but not pathogenic). A paper from 2001 describes how genetically modified viruses can be used to develop vaccines.
Along a similar line, gene therapy uses genetically modified viruses to deliver genes that can cure genetic diseases. The first case of successful gene therapy on humans was performed by Martin Cline in 1980. More recently, in 2004, a genetically modified virus was designed to exploit the selfish behavior of cancerous cells and treat cancer.
Man-made viruses are also used in mammals (myxomatosis protection for rabbits), plants (disease resistance in orange trees), and insects by designing insect-borne viruses that have the ability to modify the genes of crops in already-planted fields. This virus basically transforms non-GMO crops into GMO crops after they have been planted.
The above shows that engineering viruses is now commonplace and natural viruses do alter behavior. But viruses can be man-made AND alter behavior. This is the subject of a paper published in 2011 by a Rostock laboratory:
Gene therapy approaches have an effect in animal models of several psychiatric disorders including drug addiction, affective disorders, psychoses and dementia, modifying behavioural parameters via interventions on the molecular and cellular level.[…] stereotactic intracerebral injection of genetically modified viruses are used.
The hypothesis according to which SARS-CoV-2 “escaped” from a lab seemed outlandish at first but gained traction over time because of some puzzling evidence. To the point that a number of mainstream media , ,  confirmed that US intelligence was investigating the possibility that the virus came from a laboratory.
Luc Montagnier is a retired French researcher. He received the 2008 Nobel Prize in medicine for his discovery of HIV. Being a retired Nobel prize winner makes him less sensitive to various pressures (grant cancellation, bad press, peer pressure). Unlike most of his colleagues, he can, and does, say what he thinks.
Montagnier described SARS-CoV-2 as a man-made “Frankenstein virus” combining various type of viruses. According to Montagnier, the Frankenstein virus was made from a natural coronavirus, coming from a bat, but to this model were added sequences very similar to HIV-1 and the parasite Plasmodium falciparum, which is responsible for malaria. This point might explain why hydroxychloroquin – an anti-malaria drug – is effective against SARS-CoV-2.
To the question: “Wasn’t the coronavirus natural?” Montagnier replied: “No, it was not natural, it was the work of professionals, of molecular biologists, it’s a very precise work, we could call it watchmaker work“.
Montagnier’s claims about engineered insertions of HIV sequences in SARS-CoV-2 were confirmed by a paper titled “Uncanny similarity of unique inserts in the 2019-nCoV spike protein to HIV-1 gp120 and Gag” which had to be retracted because of “too much pressure“. Two other prominent virologists, namely Ruan Jishou of Nankai University and Li Huan from Huazhong University, came independently to the very same conclusion.
Judy Mikovits was a lab director at the National Cancer Institute, and was part of the team that was first to isolate the murine retrovirus XMRV. She also worked for several years in Fort Detrick. Mikovits is one of the few who has dared to denounce the vaccine scandal, for which she subsequently lost her career, her savings and her reputation. She publicly stated that given the astounding number (1200) of mutations between the new SARS-CoV-2 and the source bat virus, the former had to be engineered:
Interviewer: Do you believe that this virus [SARS-CoV-2] was created in the laboratory?
Mikovits: […] That cannot be naturally occurring. Somebody didn’t go to a market, get a bat, the virus didn’t jump directly to humans. That’s not how it works. That’s accelerated viral evolution. If it was a natural occurrence, it would take up to 800 years to occur.
Bruno Coutard is a researcher for IHU Méditerranée Infection, one the largest virus research facilities in the world. On April 2020, Coutard et al. published in Antiviral Research a detailed analysis of SARS-CoV-2:
In 2019, a new coronavirus (2019-nCoV) infecting Humans has emerged in Wuhan, China. Its genome has been sequenced and the genomic information promptly released. Despite a high similarity with the genome sequence of SARS-CoV and SARS-like CoVs, we identified a peculiar furin-like cleavage site in the Spike protein of the 2019-nCoV, lacking in the other SARS-like CoVs […] This furin-like cleavage site… may provide a gain-of-function to the 2019-nCoV for efficient spreading in the human population.
In plain English, “gain-of-function” means “man-made”. According to Coutard, it is this man-made intervention that enabled a zoonotic (bat) virus to ‘jump’ to humans.
Professor in etiology at the National Taiwan University Fang Chi-tai stated that SARS-CoV-2 was probably man-made. According to Fang, natural mutations of viruses will only result in small, singular changes, and it is suspicious to see a naturally mutated virus suddenly take on four amino acids. There are four more amino acids in the gene sequence of SARS-CoV-2 than in other coronaviruses. Those amino acids could be added artificially to make the viral transmission easier.
Czech molecular biologist, Dr. Soňa Peková explained that SARS-CoV-2 was man-made, because of its deeply modified “control room”:
massive gene changes and transcripts, insertions, deletions, and other complex changes in the magnitude of the RNA SARS-CoV-2 control room, if nature had created it chaotically and randomly, the virus would simply perish because it could not have functioned in an orderly manner.
Norwegian scientist Birger Sorensen and Australian scientists in Adelaide and Melbourne came independently to the same conclusion: SARS-CoV-2 is man-made because a virus never seen in humans before couldn’t be so perfectly adapted to humans:
This is a new virus that has never been in humans before, but it has an extraordinarily high binding to human receptors, which is very surprising. It is almost perfectly human adapted, it couldn’t do any better.
Artificial additions of HIV and malaria sequences, engineered furin-like cleavage, amino acids added by design, deeply modified control room, extraordinary adaptation to humans. All these pieces of evidence point to a man-made virus. And, keep in mind that these are only the proof brought forth by the few scientists who dared to speak up.
Engineered For What Purpose?
If SARS-CoV-2 was man-made the next question is: “what features were given to the engineered SARS-CoV-2 compared to its natural ancestors?”
To answer this question, let’s compare SARS-CoV-2 to its natural relatives, SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) which are two of only a handful of other coronaviruses that can infect humans. We will also include in this comparison the seasonal flu (influenza virus).
Transmission rate (R0) measures the average number of persons contaminated by a single carrier. R0 for SARS-CoV-2, is between 3 and 5. That’s several times higher than SARS with a R0 equal to 1.8 and MERS whose R0 is lower than 1. Similarly, the seasonal flu is moderately contagious, its R0 is about 1.3
Mass testing in Iceland revealed that 50% of the SARS-CoV-2 carriers are asymptomatic. This figure is consistent with the Diamond Princess case where 75% of the carriers were asymptomatic SARS and MERS are markedly more pathogenic with only 7-13% and 25.4% of healthy carriers respectively. The seasonal flu exhibits a similarly high pathogenicity with an asymptomatic fraction of between 4 and 28%
Countries that didn’t conduct mass testing provide an artificially inflated death rate because the number of infected people tends to be under-evaluated given the high proportion of asymptomatic carriers described above.
Iceland was one the few countries to conduct mass testing and it exhibits a 0.5% fatality rate, which is exactly the same number observed on board the Diamond Princess. Still, this percentage tends to be overestimated because it amalgamates “dead with SARS-CoV-2” with “dead because of SARS-CoV-2” despite obvious co-morbidity factors.
In addition, the financial incentives given for COVID-19 deaths, the almost non-existent seasonal flu death this winter (counted instead as COVID-19 deaths), and the bogus death certificates, all contributed to overinflate the COVID-19 fatality rate even more.
Despite these overinflated numbers, SARS exhibits a much higher fatality rate (9.5%) and MERS is 68 times deadlier with a 34% fatality rate.
Typically, the seasonal flu has a 0.1% fatality rate which is comparable with SARS-CoV-2 rate once overinflated numbers are put aside.
SARS-CoV-2 exhibits a surprisingly high percentage of neurological effects. Depending on the sources, between 36% and 84% of the CoVID-19 patients displayed neurological effects.
In addition, SARS-CoV-2 induces a wide range of neurological symptoms: slower-than-normal cognitive speeds, confusion, severe agitation, encephalitis, seizures, numbness, strokes, dizziness, cerebral venous sinus thrombosis, cerebral hemorrhage, headaches, loss of taste and loss of smell.
SARS also exhibits neurological effects, but their occurrence is rare (about 2.5%) and their range narrow. Between 8% and 24% of the MERS carriers exhibit neurological symptoms, mostly confusion and seizures. Influenza also causes a few neurological symptoms (encephalopathy and seizure) in 5% of patients.
Published research conducted in France has revealed that in enhanced brain MRIs performed on CoVID-19 patients, frontotemporal hypoperfusion was noted in all the patients. It suggests that SARS-CoV-2 particularly affects this specific region. Interestingly, automatic obedience is specifically related to neuronal dysfunction in the frontotemporal region.
Along the same line, when subjects are asked to make a decision with a moral content, the temporal lobe becomes active. Similarly, social values which are composed of social concepts (e.g., “generosity“) and context-dependent moral sentiments (e.g., “pride“) are associated with activity of superior anterior temporal lobe.
The table below recapitulates our main findings:
At this point, we know some of the specifities of the man-made SARS-CoV-2 compared to its natural relatives MERS, SARS, and to a lesser extent influenza. We can therefore deduce what the objectives of the virus designers were.
SARS-CoV-2 was definitely not engineered to kill, quite the contrary (low fatality rate), carriers had to stay alive. More than that, the carriers were supposed to be invisible (low pathogenicity) and the virus had to spread widely (high transmissibility).
SARS-CoV-2 was engineered to spread widely and silently and to reach the brain, affecting the region relating to moral-based decisions and obedience. What were the designers aiming to modify in the carriers’ brains? Was the objective of the virus to increase obedience?
Let’s leave these questions hanging for a moment and look more closely at the Mecca of man-made viruses and mind control: Fort Detrick.
Fort Detrick And Viruses
At the dawn of WW2, the USA was already the leader in biological and chemical weapons production, with Edgewood Arsenal being the largest chemical and biological weapons facility in the world with a staff of 1,200 researchers.
In 1943, biological and chemical weapons development was transfered to Fort Detrick. In order to gain even more knowledge about biological weapons, the US gave immunity to Nazi leading scientists like Erch Traub, a virologist who specialized in foot-and-mouth disease, Rinderpest and Newcastle disease. He was lab chief of the Nazis’ leading bio-weapons facility on Riems Island.
Months into his Operation Paperclip contract, Traub was asked to meet with US scientists from Fort Detrick[…]. Traub discussed work done at the Reich Research Institute for Virus Diseases of Animals on Riems Island during World War II for the Nazis, and work done after the war there for the Russians. Traub gave a detailed explanation of the secret operation at the Institute, and his activities there. This information provided the ground work for Fort Detrick’s offshore germ warfare animal disease lab on Plum Island.
Carroll, Michael (2004). Lab 257: The Disturbing Story of the Government’s Secret Germ Laboratory. New York: HarperCollins Publishers. pp. 7-8
In exchange for the transfer of bioweapon knowledge to Fort Detrick, the US also provided immunity to leaders of the infamous Unit 731, a covert Japanese bioweapon research group, which practiced live vivisection and killed more than 300,000 Chinese citizens through germ warfare.
By the 1950’s, Fort Detrick was already experimenting with an astouding number of viruses and other germs:
Operation Harness, a less than successful experimental program involving teams of American, British, and Canadian microbiologists who sprayed virulent agents like anthrax, brucellosis and tularemia over the Bahamas, Antigua and New Hebrides. […] Other lesser known SOD projects undertaken prior to the formalization of a relationship with the CIA involved testing the effects of salmonella poisoning, botulinum toxin sprays, kala-azar (a parasitic disease), lymphogranuloma inguinal (a herpes-like virus), yaws and, perhaps most ominous of all, developing “the ability to induce cancer through covert means.”
– Hank Albarelli, A Terrible Mistake
Germ warfare experiments were conducted on unwitting subjects and caused a number of deaths in “enemy” countries, 3rd world countries, “allied” countries like France and the US population, not only prostitutes, inmates, or mental patients but “normal citizens”, like during the exposure of 800,000 San Francisco residents to Serratia marcescens.
In 1969, amidst huge protests against the Vietnam War and growing revelations about the use of of Agent Orange (created by Frederick Hoffman and Fort Detrick’s biochemists) and Napalm against civilian populations, president Nixon announced an alleged ban on the use of chemical and biological weapons. It was, however, a fake ban as shown by the convention signed in 1972:
The United States will confine its biological research to defensive measures such as immunization and safety measures.
Basically, the only change was that now the US had to point the finger at an alleged bioterrorist to pursue its research on a given bioweapon. And that’s exactly what they did with the Iraq anthrax story. Iraq was allegedly developing anthrax bioweapons. It was one of the excuses to wage the first Iraq war. It was the same anthrax that was sent in the mail by “bio-terrorists” a few weeks after 9/11 (convenient timing to hype the ‘evil Muslim terrorist’ frenzy).
In the end, investigations revealed that the anthrax didn’t come from Iraq but from from Fort Detrick. Quite an unconvenient fact. But a convenient patsy was soon found. According to the FBI, the anthrax letters had been sent by a crazy employee: Bruce Edwards Ivins, an award-winning microbiologist who had worked in Fort Detrick for 18 years.
10 years later a scientific analysis of anthrax strains conducted by the National Academy of Science concluded that the FBI overstated the strength of genetic analysis linking the mailed anthrax to a supply kept by Bruce E. Ivins. The anthrax was from Fort Detrick, but Ivins was probably not the culprit. Ivin died in 2008, allegedly from a tylenol overdose. No autopsy was performed, the body was soon cremated. Dead men tell no tales.
Today, scientists at Fort Detrick are still conducting intensive research on man-made biological weapons in general and engineered viruses in particular. For example, in 2016, Fort Detrick was involved in research concerning the use of bats and the viruses they carry as bioweapons. In 2018, Fort Detrick conducted research on the MERS coronavirus, a close relative of SARS-CoV-2.
Fort Detrick also uses an advanced technology called CRISPR-Cas9 to extract specific genetic sequences from viruses. According to a paper published in 2017, Fort Detrick teams used this technology for extracting viral sequences coding for a “cleavage furin site”. Coincidentally or not, according to some researchers, it is the unexpected cleavage furin site found in SARS-CoV-2 that provides its unusually high virulence and proves that it is man-made.
Above is only some of the publicly available research emanating from a military site closely tied with the CIA where secrecy is paramount.
Fort Detrick And Mind Control
In parallel to researching and designing biological weapons, Fort Detrick is heavily involved in mind control. Beginning after WW2, the methods included the use of various drugs (heroin, mescaline, LSD, MDMA, synthetic THC and morphine), polygraph, electro-shock therapy; the use of “mechanical aids” ; lobotomies; hypnotism; fatigue; isolation; sensory deprivation; and torture.
MKULTRA is the best known mind control program because of the revelations about the horrific experiments conducted by Sydney Gottlieb, CIA chemist and head of some mind control experiments in Fort Detrick, and Dr. Ewen Cameron from the Allan Memorial Institute in Montreal. But this was only the tip of the iceberg, the exposed experiments were only part of sub-project 68, one of 144 sub projects contained in MKULTRA.
MKULTRA branched into many additional “avenues of control of human behavior,” including “radiation, electro-shock, various fields of psychology, psychiatry, sociology, and anthropology, graphology, harassment substances, and paramilitary devices and materials.”
Following the exposure of sub-project 68, MKULTRA was officially discontinued in 1964. The truth is that it didn’t end in 1964, it was merely re- labelled project MKSEARCH.
In addition, MKULTRA was only one of numerous programs dedicated to mind control, other known programs are ARTICHOKE, Bluebird, QKHILLTOP, Chemical Corps, MKNAOMI, MKSHADE. All were dedicated to understanding the human mind and finding all possible ways to control it.
The ultimate goal of mind control experiments conducted at Fort Detrick and its myriad satellite organizations (laboratories, hospitals, biotech companies, pharmaceutical companies, prisons) was best captured in 1952, when Paul Gaynor, head of the CIA Security Research Service, described the purpose of ARTICHOKE:
[Gaynor] posed the project’s ultimate question to the CIA’s Medical Office chief: Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against such fundamental laws of nature [like] self-preservation?
The two main research topics in Fort Detrick, namely biological weapons and mind control were not compartmentalized. As early as 1959 experiments associating infectious disease and human behavior were conducted:
Milwaukee (AP) – The CIA recruited University of Wisconsin scientists for two experiments between 1959 and 1962, the Milwaukee Journal reported in today’s edition. Documents obtained by the newspaper indicate university administrators may not have been informed of CIA involvement in the research projects. However, the documents show researchers knew about CIA sponsorship and the objects of the research. The experiments involved Infectious disease and human behavior.

Sydney Gottlieb was a PhD student under the supervision of Ira Baldwin at the University of Wisconsin. Dr Ira Baldwin would eventually chair the Department of Bacteriology at the university before becoming Camp Detrick’s director of scientific research.
The above shows that the convergence between infectious diseases and human behavior research occurred more than 60 years ago. Since then both fields of research have made tremendous progress.
A paper mentioned above describes viruses genetically modified to alter behavior. It was published in 2011 by a Rostock team. If a modest lab in Rostock could publicly publish a paper on a mind-altering engineered virus in 2011, you can imagine what Fort Detrick is able to secretly create nowadays.
Today, Fort Detrick thrives as the US army’s principal base for biological research and mind control. It employs nearly 8,000 people in 600 buildings on 13,000 acres. Over the last 70 years it has invested billions of dollars in mind control and engineered viruses.
Made in China or Made in the USA?
The creation of the Wuhan laboratory in 2015 pales in comparison to Fort Detrick and its decades of activity in biological weapons and mind control. The only argument in favor of a Wuhan-engineered SARS-CoV-2 is the timing and the location of “patient zero”, allegedly found in a Wuhan market in December 2019. This allegation was soon debunked by a paper suggesting that Wuhan market was not the place of origin of the epidemics.
While there is no patient zero to be found in Wuhan, there’s a series of mysterious epidemics near Fort Detrick that predate by months the Wuhan outbreak.
On July 2nd, 2019, a mysterious respiratory epidemic struck Greenspring Senior Living community located in Springfield, Virginia which is only 50 miles from Fort Detrick. Retrospectively, the described symptoms are very close to those associated with SARS-CoV-2/Covid-19. The epidemiologic statistics (for old people) are also similar to SARS-CoV-2 with 263 residents, 63 sick and 3 dead.
Laboratory tests conducted by the CDC did not identify a specific cause for the mysterious respiratory illness. Remember that, at the time, SARS-CoV-2 was unknown (therefore undetectable) since its discovery was announced on January 9th, 2020 by the WHO.
Springfield was not an isolated case. Virginia reported an unusual increase in respiratory illnesses located in 16 geographic clusters that lasted, at least, until December 2019 and struck typical COVID-19 patients: “Most of the reports have occurred among older adults and those with chronic medical conditions in assisted living and long-term care facilities”
On July 26th, 24 days after the Springfield outbreak, another mysterious respiratory syndrome, quickly attributed to vaping, emerged in Illinois and Wisconsin with 8 persons hospitalized due to symptoms that are, again, reminiscent of COVID-19: “Scans and X-rays showed inflammation or swelling throughout both lungs […] The severity of health condition has varied, with some patients needing assistance in order to breathe.”
The patients’ lungs showed the ground glass shadow typical of COVID-19.
In the subsequent months, the vaping syndrome spread rapidly to other US states. It reached 908 cases and 3 deaths as of September 20th. The exponential increase in cases is clearly evocative of a contagious disease:
If this mysterious respiratory disease is due to vaping, how do we explain that it started in the North-East US and only occurred within the US, while there are ten of millions e-cigarette users all over the world?
About the “vaping syndrome”, John Britton a British professor of respiratory medicine stated:
What’s happening in the U.S. is not happening here (in Britain), nor is it happening in any other countries where vaping is common’.
John Briton adds that vaping is far less dangerous than smoking, that the claims are completely false, and that the alleged vaping syndrome is not caused by vaping. Around the time of the official beginning of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, the mysterious vaping syndrome that had required 2800 hospitalizations and caused 70 deaths, magically vanished, although large numbers of people in the US are still vaping.
Around the end of 2019, the US was also experiencing the earliest flu epidemic since 2002-2003. The “flu” was 15 days earlier than usual. According to the Asahi News Report, some of the 14,000 Americans who died from this early influenza may have unknowingly contracted the SARS-CoV-2.
It was in this context of mysterious respiratory epidemics striking the US in general and the vicinities of Fort Detrick in particular, that 300 US soldiers arrived in Wuhan for the World Military Games that lasted from October 18th to October 27th, 2019. Just before the trip, some of the US soldiers had trained in Fort Belvoir, 50 miles from Fort Detrick and 6 miles from Springfield, Virginia (the first cluster of the mysterious respiratory disease).
The US team stayed at the Wuhan Oriental Hotel which is just 300 meters from Wuhan’s Huanan Seafood market
Unexpectedly, the US team did not perform very well at the games: “The U.S. team, known for their competitive skills, did terribly; only 172 participated, almost half didn’t even compete in their events.”
Despite having the largest military in the world, ten fold, the US came in 35th behind nations like Iran, Finland and Slovenia.
Interestingly, the mysterious infectious oubreak that occurred around Fort Detrick a few weeks previously may have infected participants of the World Military Games. Five “foreign” athletes were hospitalized for an undetermined infection. Many foreign athletes from France, Belgium, Germany Italy, Sweden, Luxembourg have revealed that they fell ill at the World Military Games, and thought, retrospectively, it was the COVID-19.
The first real COVID-19 case among Wuhan locals appeared on November 2, only six days after the end of the military games. Coincidentally or not, 42 employees of the Oriental Hotel (where the US delegation stayed) were diagnosed in November with COVID-19, becoming the first cluster in Wuhan.
Conveniently, Fort Detrick received a cease and desist order from the CDC and was shut down on July 15th 2019, just 13 days after the beginning of the nearby mysterious respiratory outbreak in Springfield, VA. A senior scientist described the atmosphere in Fort Detrick at the time as one of ‘fear and mistrust’ . Fort Detrick re-opened in April 2020, at the tail end of the pandemic.
From an Obedience Vaccine to a Mutated Disobedience Virus?
So far the data suggests that Fort Detrick engineered SARS-CoV-2. Contained in a vaccine, it may have targeted brain function, particularly the obedience/moral regions. But if SARS-CoV-2 was designed to increase the obedience of subjects, how do we explain the worldwide unprecedented measures to minimize its spread?
Well, sometimes things don’t go according to plans, especially with viruses.
Allegedly, vaccines contain “dead” virus but this viral deactivation doesn’t always work and “live” viruses can escape their vaccine. This is exactly what happened with the Salk polio vaccine which caused the worst polio outbreak in history, infecting 200,000 people with live polio of whom 70,000 became sick.
an un-mutated virus was more likely to produce lots of viral RNA and less likely to trigger the cellular alarm. Mutated viruses generally had the opposite effect. […]
Did SARS-CoV-2 follow the sequence of events described above?
1/ engineered virus
2/ incorporation into a vaccine
3/ virus escapes from the vaccine
4/ virus mutates and reverses effects
The evidence seems to confirm this hypothesis:
1/ Engineered virus:
Despite the secrecy surrounding this type of activity, several pieces of evidence suggest that Fort Detrick was involved in research closely related to the engineering of SARS-CoV-2.
In 2016, Fort Detrick was involved in research concerning the use of bats and the viruses they carry as bioweapons
In 2017 the US government lifted a ban on engineering deadly viruses to make them transmissible among humans. This article specifically mentions engineering SARS and MERS (close relatives of SARS-CoV-2) so they spread more easily or become more fatal.
Fort Detrick also uses an advanced technology called CRISPR-Cas9 to extract specific genetic sequences from viruses. According to a paper published in 2017, Fort Detrick teams use this technology for extracting of viral sequences coding for a “cleavage furin site”.
In 2018, research conducted in Fort Detrick, focused on the MERS coronavirus, a close relative of SARS-CoV-2.
2/ incorporation into a vaccine
For more than a century, US soldiers have been used as guinea pigs for vaccines. Every year new vaccines are tested on troops, any of the many inoculations administered around 2018 might be have contained SARS-CoV-2, including the mandatory yearly influenza vaccine, or one of the novel coronavirus-based vaccines:
In 2018, CEPI funded $56 million towards Inovio’s DNA vaccine program against the coronavirus that causes MERS. USAMRIID (Fort Detrick) was a partner in this program.
In 2018, a patent was granted (filed in 2015) for a vaccine containing man-made coronavirus. The vaccine was funded by the WHO and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation:
“The present invention provides a live, attenuated coronavirus comprising a variant replicase gene encoding polyproteins comprising a mutation in one or more of non-structural protein(s) […] The coronavirus may be used as a vaccine for treating and/or preventing a disease, such as infectious bronchitis, in a subject.”
3/ virus escapes from the vaccine
The escape probably happened in the beginning of summer 2019 as suggested by the outbreak of strange respiratory diseases that started around Fort Detrick and spread to the rest of the US within months. Until then the virus was contained in the vaccine.
4/ virus mutates and reverse neurological effects
Between the first vaccine inoculation, probably in 2018, and the end of 2019, SARS-COV-2 mutated. The mass testing conducted in Iceland revealed 40 mutations in SARS-COV-2 . A paper published in March 2020 went further by identifying 149 mutations sites and two distinct strains: the L lineage and the S lineage.
The L lineage exhibits a significantly higher number of mutations, while the S lineage is more related to coronaviruses in animals. It suggests that the S lineage is the strain originally contained in the vaccine (obedience) while the L lineage is the strain that appeared after the mutation (disobedience).
In September 2019, before the Wuhan epidemics but after the mysterious respiratory illnesses in the US, president Trump signed an “emergency” Executive Order that gave 120 days for the development of a novel flu vaccine “just in case”.
Lock-down to Minimize Spread Not Fatality
We witnessed two very distinct lock-downs. The first one in Wuhan was decided in the face of a virus yet unknown, at least to Chinese scientists. The second was a worldwide lock-down imposed by whoever controls the WHO, after SARS-COV-2 was ascertained not to be deadlier than a common flu.
Wuhan authorities made a logical decision. At the time, the virus was unknown and no treatment was yet developed. Chinese officials identified a infectious cluster whose timing and location fit the period in which US soldiers were in Wuhan. They rightly suspected a potentially deadly viral weapon engineered in the US (as they stated as early as March).
Like in the Middle Ages during the Black Death, a confinement was the only solution. In the absence of cure, it is an attempt to minimize the spread of the virus by avoiding any social contact.
But Chinese virologists quickly determined that SARS-COV-2 , although engineered in the US, was not deadlier than a seasonal flu and effective treatments were available. Soon the lock-down was lifted. Notice that Wuhan is only a tiny geographic region in China. The rest of China experience limited or no lockdowns. Quickly, China and neighboring countries adopted a test and treat approach that was successful: fatality rate in China is estimated to be 0.6%.
The lock-down imposed on the West was a very different story. By this time, it was clear that SARS-COV-2 was not the new plague, furthermore testing kits and effective treatments (hydroxychloroquine/azytromycine) were available. So there was a better solution than lock-down in terms of “saving lives”.
The total lock-down imposed on billions of individuals epitomizes the line of force developed in this article. At any given time, the authorities will choose control over lives. If necessary they will sacrifice life to preserve or increase their control. That is exactly what happened with the lock-down which increased the COVID-19 fatality rate (no herd immunity, no testing, no early treatment) and overall fatality rate because of the increase in suicides, depression, poverty, delayed/canceled medical care.
The authorities deliberately chose the worse solution (from a “saving lives” perspective) because it was the best one in terms of control. They chose the lock-down to minimize the spread of the beneficial disobedience mutation, even though they knew that it would cause a number of extra casualties.
The premise of the lock-down was “COVID-19 is deadly”, so in order to save lives we had to stay home. In truth, the virus was not deadly at all, but the lock-down was. A self-fulfilling prophecy, where the remedy (lock-down) caused more deaths than the disease (COVID-19). A number of deaths caused by the lock-down were counted as COVID-19 deaths, making the initial bogus claim (COVID-19 is deadly) apparently true.
Notice that five of the countries that imposed a total lock-down (France, Portugal, Italy, Belgium and later the Netherlands) also banned an effective, cheap and safe drug: hydroxychloroquin. Unsurprisingly, those five countries exhibit some of the highest fatality rates in the world.
In this article we gathered numerous evidence suggesting that SARS-COV-2 was engineered in Fort Detrick and incorporated in a vaccine with the express purpose of spreading widely and affecting the obedience region in our brains.
But it backfired, first with the ‘obedience virus’ mutating into a ‘disobedience virus’, forcing authorities to take rushed measures to restrict the spread of the beneficial mutant, at any price.
The total lock-down was this desperate attempt to minimize the spread of potentially beneficial effects of the mutated SARS-COV-2 . But it backfired a second time because the lock-down seems to have actually increased the transmission rate:
“Government study about COVID-19 seroprevalence in Spain: among workers, those who had an “essential profession” and continued working were less infected than those staying at home. This should lead to a reflection on the role of general confinement.”
Having failed to contain the spread of the beneficial mutant, one of the only options left was to cancel the beneficial effects. The authorities are busy preparing the public for what is to come, for months we keep hearing about the “second wave” and “the vaccine”.
What follows is only a prediction made in a very chaotic context. It’s probable that at the end of 2020, like every year, a flu epidemics will emerge. This virus will be conveniently deemed a close relative to SARS-COV-2, maybe with extra terrifying features.
But there’ll be no need to despair, because this time, the authorities have prepared a vaccine. That’s one of the reasons why the hydroxycholoroquine was lambasted and banned. If a safe and effective treatment already exists, who is going to accept a rushed and unknown vaccine? A vaccine allegedly protecting from COVID-20, but in reality designed to cancel the beneficial changes induced by the mutated strain of SARS-COV-2.
Fort Detrick, despite being allegedly closed between July 2019 and April 2020, is already testing a vaccine. Isn’t that rather quick? From the above, we know that the people at Fort Detrick know quite a lot about SARS-COV-2 and its neurological effects.
It’s probable that the vaccination won’t be mandatory. Remember that the authorities are now “kinder and gentler”. Instead of brute force, the authorities are more likely to use moral blackmail: “get vaccinated to protect others” combined with social blackmail: “No vaccine = no job, no shopping, no travel, no socializing”. Basically, you’re free to choose between the vaccine or a life sentence in an isolated cell.
In the end, the take home message from this article is not so much about SARS-COV-2, which is finally just one more chapter in the big book of the lies told by authorities and human tragedy. The principal message is that authorities are not here to protect us. The only thing that can protect us is knowledge, including the visceral knowledge that the authorities do not protect us, quite the contrary, actually.
