Smoking guns, designed mutations, and the U.S. government cover-up of the laboratory origin of COVID-19
If you are wondering why U.S. intelligence agencies are incapable of identifying the origin of COVID-19 and why the U.S. government shows no interest in pursuing that issue, wonder no more.
There is a deliberate cover-up underway because the rich and powerful multi-national interests that control the U.S. government are massively invested in China’s economic success and many U.S officials and scientists could be accused of complicity in the creation of COVID-19.
The scientific recipe for the laboratory creation of COVID-19 was described in the 2018 research grant application to the U.S. Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) “Project DEFUSE: Defusing the Threat of Bat-borne Coronaviruses” submitted by Peter Daszak of the EcoHealth Alliance and his primary co-applicants Zheng-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina and Linfa Wang of Duke University-National University of Singapore, a Chinese scientist who also worked at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
In the same year, all the applicants participated in The 8th International Symposium on Emerging Viral Diseases in Wuhan, China, October 21-22, 2018.
The application was ultimately rejected by DARPA because it involved dangerous “gain of function” experiments creating new human-infecting viruses and the potential for dual use as a bioweapon.
DARPA, however, left the door open for partial funding and it is very likely that experiments were already ongoing in the laboratories of the principal investigators at the time the application was submitted.
The research proposal explicitly states that bat coronavirus samples, collected in southern China by the Wuhan Institute of Virology, would be isolated and genetically sequenced in Wuhan, in particular, the spike proteins, which is the binding element initiating infection.
In follow-up experiments conducted by Zheng-Li Shi of the Wuhan Institute of Virology and Linfa Wang of Duke University-National University of Singapore, spike proteins demonstrating “high risk” for human infection would be artificially combined with other bat coronavirus “backbones,” creating entirely new and potentially dangerous coronaviruses, which would then be tested for human infection by Ralph Baric of the University of North Carolina.
Another “smoking gun” for the laboratory origin of COVID-19 is the presence of the furin polybasic cleavage site in the virus (PRRA).
It is a four amino acid sequence, which does not exist in any of hundreds of close bat coronaviruses relatives from which COVID-19 could have evolved.
The enzyme furin is ubiquitous in the human body and it has long been known that the presence of furin polybasic cleavage sites in viruses facilitates viral entry and replication in human cells, thereby increasing transmissibility and pathogenicity.
The presence of the furin polybasic cleavage site can also help explain why the COVID-19 virus can attack multiple human organ systems.
Chinese People’s Liberation Army scientists, Shibo Jiang and Shuwen Liu, demonstrated the artificial insertion of furin cleavage sites in 2013.
As stated in a May 18, 2021 Gateway Pundit article, the artificial insertion of the furin polybasic cleavage site into a bat coronavirus backbone was likely done under the supervision of Shibo Jiang in coordination with his military-trained colleague Shuwen Liu and others at the School of Pharmaceutical Science, Southern Medical University, Guangzhou, China.
Again, the 2018 DEFUSE research grant application explicitly states the applicants’ intention to artificially insert furin polybasic cleavage sites into high abundance, but low risk bat coronaviruses found in China and testing the ability of those laboratory-created viruses to infect human cells:
We will analyze all SARS-CoV gene sequences for appropriately conserved proteolytic cleavage sites in S2 and for the presence of potential furin cleavage sites. SARSr-CoV S with mismatches in proteolytic cleavage sites can be activated by exogenous trypsin or cathepsin L. Where clear mismatches occur, we will introduce appropriate human specific cleavage sites and evaluate growth potential in Vero cells and HAE cultures. In SARS-CoV, we will ablate several of these sites based on pseudotyped particle studies and evaluate the impact of select SARSr-CoV S changes on virus replication and pathogenesis. We will also review deep sequence data for low abundant high risk SARSr-CoV that encode functional proteolytic cleavage sites, and if so, introduce these changes into the appropriate high abundant, low risk parental strain.”
It is important to note that the furin polybasic cleavage site inserted in the COVID-19 virus may have been designed to mutate into a more contagious and pathogenic variants, like the presently dominant Delta variant.
The initial proline (P), having an unusually rigid structure, first mutated in March 2021 to histidine (H) as the UK variant.
In July 2021, the proline mutated in the Delta variant to an arginine (R) residue, from PRRA to RRRA. Arginine is a chemically basic amino acid, which provides the functional elements in furin polybasic cleavage sites. That is, multiple arginines in sequence make the furin polybasic cleavage site more potent.
The new, reportedly highly contagious Omicron variant from South Africa, among other mutations, has a proline to histidine mutation in the furin polybasic cleavage site.
Unless the true origin of COVID-19 is rapidly addressed, the world not only faces the possibility of another man-made pandemic, but the complete destruction of science as an honest and objective discipline

ON FIRE! Dr. Naomi Wolf: “Dr. Fauci Should Be Scared of Investigations – There Clearly Is Misconduct Going On” (VIDEO)
By Jim Hoft November 29, 2021
Dr. Naomi Wolf joined Steve Bannon on The War Room on Monday morning. This was after Dr. Fauci’s bizarre appearance on the Sunday shows where he declared himself the true and legitimate voice of “science” and then once again lied about the debunked bat soup theory as the origin of the coronavirus pandemic.
It is widely known that Fauci himself funed the Wuhan labs that created the virus and that Fauci’s cohort Dr. Peter Daszak publicly admitted to producing such a virus in the Chinese labs back in 2016.
Naomi Wolf warned Fauci that the investigations are coming. He will not be given a pass from the American public once they understand Fauci’s policies of pain, destruction, and mass murder.
Dr. Namoi Wolf: I wouldn’t be surprised if he (Fauci) is preparing his legal defense, as he should. Something you won’t read about in The New York Times is that Bill Gates has been called to account legally by the Indian Bar Association with murder charges… I read the complaint, and it’s a complaint based on international law on medical coercion. We all lost sight of the fact that every law in a democracy you need full informed consent in order to agree to a medical intervention. There’s no way. And especially, I just mentioned, 20 states are not reporting risks of vaccinations to the CDC… That is not informed consent… Dr. Fauci and Dr. Walensky, there are calls for them to be investigated for willful misconduct. And that’s something… Sooner or later after the midterms, their friends may not be in charge and there will be investigations. And there will be subpoenas and you are going to see emails that are now redacted. And a lot of people have died and a lot of information has been covered up. I think Dr. Fauci should be scared of an investigation. There is clearly misconduct going on.

Flashback 2016: Fauci’s Cohort Peter Daszak Explains How Scientists Can Perfectly Create a Coronavirus in China Lab That Can Lead to Global Pandemic
By Jim Hoft November 28, 2021
On March 28, 2016, Dr. Peter Daszak described exactly how scientists could create a virus in a China lab that would lead to a global coronavirus pandemic.
Dr. Daszak: We found other coronaviruses in bats a whole host of them. Some of them looked very similar to SARS so we sequenced the spike protein, the protein that attaches to cells. Then we, well I didn’t do this work my colleagues in China did the work, you create pseuda-particles. You create a spike proteins from those viruses simply bind to human cells. each step of this you move closer and closer to this virus could really become pathogenic to people.
Today there is documentation and email evidence of Dr. Peter Daszak admitting that he and Fauci were doing work in collaboration with the Chinese virologists at the Wuhan virology lab.
Fauci and Daszak Lied
On February 1, 2020, when confronted with first evidence the Covid pandemic may have originated in the Wuhan Lab he funded via Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance, Fauci organized a conference call, apparently to discuss how to suppress this dangerous information, since the trail led straight to them.
On Feb. 19, 2020, Daszak, Farrar and others published a letter in The Lancet, saying that “We stand together to strongly condemn conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin.”
This letter was then used to suppress and censor the Chinese lab leak theory in Mainstream Media and on social media for over a year. There was, and remains, no evidence for the “scientists’” claims.
Fauci continues to lie about the origins of the coronavirus.
Fauci and Daszak know exactly where it came from.
At some point, justice must be served!

Left uniting with right in massive grassroots resistance to vaccine mandates
Establishment trying to ‘make us feel isolated, alone and powerless’
By Art Moore November 29, 2021
In this polarized hour, citizens from both sides of the political spectrum are finding common cause in resisting COVID-19 vaccine mandates for children, with more than 100 grassroots groups in California joining forces in an effort called The Unity Project.
Philanthropist Jeff Hanson is spearheading the project along with health experts such as Dr. Robert Malone, the inventor of the messenger RNA technology behind the two leading COVID-19 vaccines.
“What we understand launching this is we need our progressive brothers and sisters,” Hanson said in a virtual briefing Monday.
Launched two weeks ago, the project began in response to California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom’s declared intent to mandate vaccines in K-12 schools.
“We are firmly of the mind that if governments can hold down healthy 5-year-olds and inject them with this vaccine, we have lost our country,” said Hanson, who serves at the project’s board chairman and independent director.
He is the executive chairman of American Healthcare REIT, a public-reporting health-care real estate investment trust that owns facilities worth a total of about $4.9 billion across 38 states, the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man.
Hanson said the leaders of The Unity Project “come to this discussion with a deep sense of humility.”
“What we are facing in this nation today is so far beyond anything I’ve seen in my lifetime.”
Hanson said that prior to launching, activists connected through a flurry of emails that were followed up by Zoom calls, eventually uniting 100 different groups that had not previously communicated with each other.
“That was like water to a parched man and woman’s soul,” he said.
Hanson noted that the strategy of the opponents of these grassroots groups is “to make us feel alone, isolated and powerless.”
The Unity Project is merging resources with Malone’s Global Covid Summit, a coalition of more than 14,000 scientists and researchers around the world. In a declaration issued at a gathering in Rome, they affirm opposition to forced vaccination and called for recognizing the power of natural immunity and stopping government interference in COVID-19 treatments such as ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine.
Malone is a member of The Unity Project’s executive team along with Dr. Paul Alexander, a former U.S Health and Human Services and World Health Organization adviser; and Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, an internationally recognized psychiatrist and author, who serves as the project’s chief of medical ethics.
Malone, Alexander and Kheriaty also are members of the strategic advisory council along with Drs. Harvey Risch of Yale; Peter McCullough; Pierre Kory, co-founder and president of the Frontline COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance; and others.
Malone said Monday the issue boils down to “totalitarianism vs. freedom of choice,” which unites civil libertarians from left and right.
The project is now centered in California — which organizers see as the frontline of the battle — but it aims to assist in a nationwide effort to reach demographics such as concerned parents, young adults, Latinos, blacks and “granola liberals,” Malone said.
“There’s a strong populist aspect of what’s going on in our mission space. We all feel it. You know it deep in your bones,” he said.
“It’s a global populism that is rising up right now.”
EDITOR’S NOTE: Last year, America’s doctors, nurses and paramedics were celebrated as frontline heroes battling a fearsome new pandemic. Today, under Joe Biden, tens of thousands of these same heroes are denounced as rebels, conspiracy theorists, extremists and potential terrorists. Along with massive numbers of police, firemen, Border Patrol agents, Navy SEALs, pilots, air-traffic controllers, and countless other truly essential Americans, they’re all considered so dangerous as to merit termination, their professional and personal lives turned upside down due to their decision not to be injected with the experimental COVID vaccines. Biden’s tyrannical mandate threatens to cripple American society – from law enforcement to airlines to commercial supply chains to hospitals. It’s already happening. But the good news is that huge numbers of “yesterday’s heroes” are now fighting back – bravely and boldly. The whole epic showdown is laid out as never before in the sensational October issue of WND’s monthly Whistleblower magazine, titled “THE GREAT AMERICAN REBELLION: ‘We will not comply!’ COVID-19 power grab ignites bold new era of national defiance.”
