Great article! Whether Sars-Cov-2 was released deliberately, or accidentally, is, of course, a question of utmost importance and a very difficult one to answer. There is evidence pointing both ways and there is not yet enough evidence to make this conclusion.

Some evidence in support is that there was no legitimate reason to design Sars-Cov-2 for maximum infectivity (Furin cleavage site) to begin with. There was no legitimate reason to create it with HIV inserts, aiding in infecting and killing immune cells, either. It was designed from the get go with features that are not needed for research, but are useful in creating a very successful pandemic virus.

In addition, as arkmedic discussed, there was a parallel work on "inhibitors", which is understandable for creating bioweapon pandemic viruses, but is not needed at all if SC2 was developed to "create a vaccine" for something.

As I mentioned in my article from around March, work on "novel coronavirus vaccine" was done in parallel with developing SC2.

https://igorchudov.substack.com/p/2019-novel-coronavirus-vaccine-dated

All of this is not conclusive, but points out that development of a bioweapon was under way. Was the bioweapon released intentionally, or by accident? Does it even matter if an intentionally developed bioweapon was released earlier than intended?

As for killing older or diabetic people, unfortunately Covid will kill much broader parts of population eventually, through endless reinfections, partly due to vaccination. Including many youths.

I know one boosted teenager that had FOUR covids and was hospitalized during his last covid bout a week ago. His previous bout of covid was a month ago.

Hardly anyone is talking about the cumulative nature of repeat spike infection and transfection. I have a friend whose unvaxxed family is on round 3 of CoVid. I asked her if she thinks it’s going to have a cumulative effect and she thinks it’s going to be more like when you first start school and catch every cold but after a year or two, you have enough exposure to enough colds that you gain resilience. That’s the hopeful thinking. I fear the opposite. This is not a natural virus. It was designed. All bets are off.

This, like the proliferation of cancers, is another aspect of the gradual weakening and reduction of the population, but I believe the primary issue is the gradual build up of spike protein in the body because that is lethal once it passes a critical threshold for each individual.

Can we establish that routine sanitation of mouth and nose will assist in reducing infections? Such a simple thing that seems somewhat obvious yet is not promoted nor discussed. Such sanitation was more typical before the age of drugs for every malady - our grandmothers were wise once.

As we enter the apparent world of vaccine skeptics is appears that the Trusted News Initiative has failed to reduce vaccine hesitancy. People everywhere are observing that the vaccines don't work. That direct experience counters the efforts of the TNI to avoid the obvious. I understand the TNI was a derivative of Event 201 planning, so was setup to function when needed. The TNI has prevented many from discovering various truths. It could be used to promote and circulate sanitation methods.

A JAMA article showed efficacy in vitro early on. Sort of disappeared from popularity. Peter McCullough has recommended nasal irrigation with dilute povidine iodine solution or dilute hydrogen peroxide solution if iodine is not tolerated.

Could please tell exactly how one would make a nasal irrigation solution out of readily available 3% hydrogen peroxide from a drug store, the specific water source needed i.e. bottled drinking, boiled tap, distilled, etc. and the ratio of each?

It depends on whether the same biological activity occurs from the omicron proteins as the original alpha proteins.

It is clear now they are different proteins. Eg immune escape. But I cannot yet see any studies of these new proteins and their toxicology as most of the focus has been placed on the older spike protein. Which destroys mitochondria!

However if they are similar to one another, logic certainly says yes repeat exposure is bad. Just like in radiation toxicity. More environmental radiation, more problems. Longer exposure, more problems. Repeated exposure, more problems and so on and so on.

I do too. I had OG in 2019. Wasn't a usual flu. It checked me out for weak spots. Wasn't sick for two years. Then I had a weird sweating thing that messed with my hydration and elimination for a few months. I am just recovering now and have to make sure I have NAC, nattokinase, aspirin, nearly every day.

So RATS produce a high rate of false negatives, but positives are reliably positive?

Can a procalcitonin test during mild symptoms distinguish between flu and covid or not? And cannot anosmia distinguish between flu and covid?

So, if you have anosmia and normal procalcitonin and ILI symptoms, is that enough info to say with 90% certainty that you have covid? And what happens to procalcitonin after symptoms clear? Does it decline immediately after flu symptoms pass?

Thank you for the correction. However, what is the basis of the reliability of "measuring" antigens, and what is the validity of ascribing said "antigen" results to claims of "infection", or illness, and or contagion.

Here in Shanghai, and Changzhou, China, I believe that I have been subject to about 40, so-called antigen "tests." Those who report the results (staff from various hospitals), have found that I am negative ... all the time. But negative for what? Antigens to a never found virus?

Dear AJ,

According the the DC government webpage (https://coronavirus.dc.gov/page/what-is-an-antigen-test), so-called antigen tests "detect ... the nucleocapsid protein antigen of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (the virus that causes COVID-19)"

So here we are stuck with the same question: what virus? There has been no demonstration of a "new virus." And there is no showing that said "nucleocapsid protein" is unique. Lastly, all the "antigen" test kits are under Emergency Use Authorization from the FDA. That is, the "test makers" have not demonstrated any reliability or validity in a manner that comports with standard regulations on medical devices.

What is the difference between a 'live' and a 'dead' RNA fragment? If it is just a fragment does it have any significance at all?

Expand full comment

To my knowledge a dead RNA fragment has no real value in terms of diagnosing an active viral infection. What you are seeing with dead RNA fragments is what your body already fought and got over weeks or months ago.

What I have learned, from listening to many interviews from Reiner Fuellmich’s Corona Investigative Committee is that the Drosten PCR is a fraudulent test set at a cycle threshold to give false positives to create the illusion of a pandemic.

I am not saying there is not something out there, just that a test that gives lots and lots of false positives has been used to trick the public into thinking there was a real pandemic in 2020.

With all the side effects from the jabs and the effects of antibody dependent enhancement, we now have a real pandemic of the injected.....but the media will find a way to blame the unjabbed......

Correct; RNA fragments which PCR tests can detect often have no clinical relevance.

Already fought, or could be simply remnants of cells that are breaking down. Bodily cells are breaking down and being replaced on a continuous basis. How are we determine which fragments are part of normal metabolism and which are 'viral'? Hence the need for purification of the alleged particles, not assembling genomes from RNA fragments.

Also I just don’t know about whether or not the current home tests, PCR tests used in hospitals, or rapid antigen tests detect live viruses that your body is currently fighting off.

All tests that I am aware of detect either a fragment of an alleged virus or are used to infer presence of an alleged virus, i.e. antibody or antigen. I think we should refrain from the term 'live' virus, they are not alive or dead. Only organisms are alive or dead. Viruses have not been shown to be organisms. Even the word 'parasite' is generous.

Your statement "Since there is no way to determine if someone has Covid (the syndrome has a myriad of symptoms that overlap with other viral infections (and environmental toxins)" may not exactly, or always, be the case. But, of course, everybody is different. However, one article I read during 2020 trying to differentiate symptoms (before Delta and Omicron, so . . . ?) stated that COVID tended to be characterized by a cough starting earlier in the infection, and not so much upper respiratory symptoms as a normal flu. I caught SOMETHING the end of August 2020 that followed that pattern and was nothing like any flu I had ever had. I assume it was COVID, because after that I never caught anything like full-on COVID again (maybe a teensy touch of Omicron?). The most dramatic symptom besides a fairly bad cough was getting just "slammed" energy-wise. Profound fatigue that didn't resolve with end of fever like it should have. Only other time an infection hit me like that was a bad bout of Amoebic dysentery with a fever of 103.6, but within a few days of that, I was fine again. Not with this thing! But it occurred before I heard anyone talking about mitichondrial involvement with COVID, so it took me several weeks before I finally figured out, by a process of elimination, that it HAD to be something wrong with my mitichondria. Now that I know how they can get stressed out by an infection, especially a viral infection that creates a very high level of inflammation, and shut down on you via the "Cell Danger Response", it all fits. I took a bunch of different supplements to get my mitichondria working again, and it helped slightly but not much. Once they shut down it is like trying to start a car with a dead battery and no way to jump it. I had X amount of energy available at any given time, and when I used it up, it was like turning off a light switch. I literally couldn't move without lying down for a couple of hours. Very weird! And it hardly got any better over the next year+. The flu certainly never did anything like that! So I suspect that at least the more severe cases of COVID are diagnosable without relying on the inaccurate tests like PCR.

So just today I stumbled into an OLD article on solar generated vit D and how it was going to turn out badly that the FDA and marketing was pushing sun block and staying inside so much... the connection I made was, gee, isn't that suppressing health so chronic problems start so you can diagnose a syndrome with some symptoms you just happen to have drugs on hand to suppress (very profitably, of course).

That was a 2010 article.

Don't get me started on the old one written by the discoverer of the P.S.A. where he opines on how that test is used to lead to surgeries and other "cures" that cause permanent harm for what would likely not have ended anyone's life earlier or caused measurable quality drop. Doesn't that sound a lot like a PCR test??

When Morgellon's was the lab-disaster of the day, the strategy was to suddenly flood biochemistry / medical message boards with new users talking about aliens. This was directly after the CDC did an 'investigation' into the origin of the disease to appease the citizens (2006, in partnership with Kaiser Permanente and the Air Force, because why not), then conveniently declared the disease to be 'non-existent' and labeled patients 'delusional'. Research and online information was censored, doctors lost licenses. Then gain-of-function research was quietly relocated overseas, including those staff members who ran the 'investigation'. Decades later, patients have never received information, validation, or help.

If you're not familiar with this condition, do an image search for 'Morgellons.' The fibers shown have auto-florescence in several standard colors used as labeling in bio-labs and can be reliably diagnosed using a florescent microscope. If those public officials getting massive paychecks from taxpayers had risen to their responsibility and acted ethically and wisely 20 years ago, we could have avoided the damage and deaths happening now with yet another lab disaster. (And let's not forget Zika in between.)

That is very interesting. Do you know if rounds two and three were milder than round one? And which variants were numbers two and three? Omicron and then the newer Omicron variant?

Omicron is probably a lab-made version because it looks like a genetic offshoot of the original Wuhan strain, or something close to it. It could NOT have been from a natural progression of mutations. And it was released in locations where it shouldn't have naturally occurred. Somebody very badly wants this pandemic to keep going (so the Left can use mail-in voting again to steal the next elections is the assumption).

Twice since having COVID two years ago I had some kind of a mild virus . . . one may have been a COVID variant because I had a slight fever for about a day, and was very low energy, almost as bad as from the first bout with COVID. But I took some more Ivermectin and it cleared up pretty quickly. The other was like a mild like a cold but different because it didn't do the full-fledged nasal drippy, etc. Was it another COVID variant or just some other Coronavirus? Who knows? But with all this stuff going around, everybody had better attend to their vitamin/mineral status! Everything, including iodine, zinc, and copper! I just learned that copper deficiencies are much, much more common than most people realize, and it is critically important to energy production in the mitichondria . . . a feature of Long COVID! So I just started taking some copper, too. The government RDA, like most things, is rediculously too low, and it turns out that copper is NOT dangerously toxic like the government wants us to believe. In fact, I think they tell these lies to keep everyone sick. Makes more money for Big Pharma that way. God forbid people become healthy and stop paying billions of dollars for toxic pharmaceutical drugs!

I've been taking a lot of vitamin C, and guess what? Vitamin C blocks copper absorption! So after just a few days of higher-dose copper to replenish my stores, I'm feeling almost normal again! So we can add copper to the list of nutrients the mitochondria seriously need to overcome the shutdown they go through from COVID! (The "cell danger response")

We looked at Omicron for a while and felt it was either lab made or originated in HIV patients from South Africa....but we accepted we most likely will never know which it was.

Also, some people really benefit from copper, but others run into serious issues from taking it so you have to be careful giving absolute advice on those types of topics.

How much copper?

Apparently up to about 20 or 30 mg/day copper is safe. I had always heard that people shouldn't take more than about one or one and a half mg/day or it could cause an imbalance with zinc, but it seems like that was bad or outdated information. I am looking at this book on Amazon and plan to get it soon. It is pretty new and looks like a good resource:

"The Copper Revolution: Healing with Minerals": https://a.co/d/3Vrr7zm

I don't know yet what an optimum dose would be for me, but what I was getting in my multi vitamin/ mineral caps was too low.

But here are some optimum doses of other nutrients—a perfect example of how far off the government RDAs are! Of course, they do not want people to be healthy!:

Optimum boron is about 10 or 12 mg/day.

Optimum selenium about 600 micrograms/day.

Optimum vitamin D about 30,000 units per day.

Optimum magnesium maybe 1,200 mg/day in divided doses.

Optimum vitamin K2 several milligrams per day.

Optimum iodine a LOT more than the RDA, maybe up to about 50 milligrams per day.

Optimum supplemental calcium ZERO mg/day! Except for growing children and pregnant or lactating women or if there is a known deficiency. Calcium by itself makes osteoporosis WORSE because it competes with magnesium for absorption. Most adults get plenty in the diet, and too much if they use a lot of dairy. And almost everyone is seriously deficient in K2, so they deposit calcium in places where it doesn't belong.

The Optimal Dose: Restore Your Health With the Power of Vitamin D3 Hardcover – November 7, 2018

https://www.amazon.com/Optimal-Dose-Restore-Health-Vitamin/dp/1732655022

________

An excellent guide w testimonials to high dose Vitamin D3. Say 30000 iu daily. I am reading right now via Kindle unlimited to get the details. I will be going on the high dose program. My D3 levels are already high at 75 ng/ml tested via blood work. Due to taking lots of D3 daily along with K2 and magnesium glycinate. For high dose you need to take K2 + a magnesium supplement. There are others I will find out about

One more thing: people living near the equator who are in the sun a lot can make 10,000 to 20,000i.u. per day of D3 in their skin (IF they don't have a lot of glyphosate, that is). And uninformed doctors think taking 10,000 i.u. is dangerous???!!!

Again, vitamin D also needs some vitamin A with it, but not very much.

You found it.

In May 2020 I got thinking about the fact that I had gotten quite lazy about taking supplements, including D, and had gotten frequent colds over the winter of 2019-2020. Now we were in a pandemic that we still didn't know a lot about, but information was already coming out about a strong correlation between low vitamin D and people dying from COVID, especially with certain comorbidities. So here I am, a 71 year old with comorbidities and getting every cold that came along. Hmmm . . . didn't seem like a great situation. So I decided to take very high dose D for a week to "kick up" my serum D level. So I started taking 100,000 i u. per day, along with several mg of vitamin K2 as Mk4 and Mk7, plus magnesium and vitamin A, both cofactors. By the end of the week nothing untoward had happened (not that I expected anything to), so I decided to do it a little longer. The vit A I didn't keep up because of its potential toxicity. But the D I continued at that dose, just to see what would happen, right up until I caught COVID at the end of August. In the meantime, I had completely stopped catching colds, but it was summer anyway, of course.

Four weeks later (with no more D) I had my blood drawn for several tests, including D, a chemistry panel, CRP, and serum ferritin. My calcium was perfect, and the D was 196 ng/ml I think. Brainwashed doctors probably would have freaked out over that, but it was still far below a "toxic" level, but vitamin D "toxicity" coincidentally is identical to a K2 deficiency! And high dose D will use up your vitamin K2 supply because they are used together, producing a very low K2, that might result in elevated Ca. But 30,000i.u./day apparently isn't high enough to require extra K2 with it (but vitamin K2 is so good for you, you should take it high dose anyway). Elevated serum Calcium shouldn't be a consideration until blood level goes OVER 300ng/ml., a level that would take a truly outrageous amount over a long time to achieve.

Jeff Bowes has an interesting, if amateurish, book on anecdotal high dose vitamin D experimentation, basically a badly edited blog in book form, but worth reading (with critical thinking skills) nonetheless. Many important medical advances had their origin in anecdotal observations, and then case studies.

BTW, I also took other things during COVID, but my CRP and serum ferritin apparently "went through the roof" from COVID, because they were still really high when I got tested four weeks later. However, my pulse ox reading never went below 98% (normal for me), so I hadn't developed blood clots in my lungs. High dose D is supposed to prevent abnormal blood clotting, and so are vitamin C and magnesium that I was also taking. If I had known my inflammatory markers were so high, I would have added in some other things.

And we have learned a LOT more about COVID since summer 2020! If I had to do it all over again, I would do a few things differently.

Some people really benefit from copper, but others run into serious issues from taking it.

Dear Scott Kinghorn,

Different types of copper have varied levels of bioavailability. Robert Scott Bell speaks about a particular type that is easily absorbed. Of course, some people need more zinc or selenium, or vitamin C. I suggest that you review the work of William Kelley to find your eating "type." (http://www.whale.to/cancer/k/Ch8.html)

Beyond that, you need D3, and to get off: (a) all Rx drugs; (b) all artificial flavors; (c) processed sugars, like HFCS and aspartame; and (d) eliminate the seed oils (polyunsaturated omega-6). See the lectures of Chris Knobbe.

Increase that water intake to 4 liters per day and get lots of Himalayan or other healthy salt.

Dear PW,

Thank you. Great post. Really sad. But that is Trump, intellectually limited. The pro-Pharma, "outsider."

Good question!

I personally don't see how anyone can consider flu a national security issue. If anything, the over-reaching pharmaceutical companies are national security issues! I "smell" a rat here. A very big rat!

And the government needs to "butt out of" health issues, altogether. We don't need a Nanny State government! Health is a personal issue and none of the government’sdamn business. They are already far too involved. At most they should be doing things like engaging in public service announcements encouraging people to increase their Vitamins C and D intake considerably. That would solve any flu problem.

Fleming makes the point that SARS Cov 2 is not a virus that could have evolved naturally; that it is not a step-wise type, one mutation away from natural viruses virus that might have a reasonable explanation for being created for preventive purposes. It was specifically engineered to be more infective via HIV inserts, and to have a lethal prion addition as well as other adaptations for cellular attachment and entry. A convoluted way of saying the virus is definitely a bio weapon.

Now, it seems to me that whether it was released at some pre-planned moment or at some accidental moment is irrelevant because, once China locked down its citizens within its own country, while simultaneously allowing its citizens to travel abroad and seed the world with the virus, it became a declaration of war by bioweapon. And the resultant effects on international economies, livelihoods, lives, and deaths are evidence thereof. Even worse, we have the purported cures-not-cures in the form first of the lethal remdesivir/vent therapy, then in the form of the gene shots.

Both the rapidly mutating virus and the shots are weapons.

And so was the ENTIRE public "health" response . . . everything they did caused more damage—Lockdowns (NEVER a public health option!), Masking and anti-Social Distancing and Hand Sanitizers that could not possibly stop an aerosolized airborne virus but were CONTROL trips that accentuated fear. And the masks were weapons that reduced oxygen levels to far below safe, especially during any physical activity (and resulted in some deaths of schoolchildren forced to wear masks during sports). It was ALL an evil attack by sick, evil people hell bent on mass depopulation!

My question is:

How many of the "party tricks" that Fuaxi's bioweapon was programmed to perform are present in the vanilla version of the virus only (and the hackcines - of course - this being the reason why they keep on adding it), and how many would actually be diminished by natural mutations?

This is an important question, because this virus will not be eradicated... ever.

That becomes a question of how you define the vanilla version of a virus (ie. you could argue the vanilla version is the virus that creates the common cold).

The vanilla version is the one created in the lab... The one that would say "poppa" to Tony Science...

It has already become less pathogenic than the Wuhan strain, and variants through Delta. Omicron is very likely also human-engineered based on its dissimilarity to any previous circulating strain. There IS Intelligent Design in the universe. (The entire Quantum Field is conscious.) Hopefully it will nudge the mutations in ways that will render it less destructive to humanity.

You think so? Me too :-)... O-mice-cron :-)...

And, if that is true (as I think it is), those guys are way better than the ones who designed the bioweapon.

It makes zero difference in the long run whether its release was accidental or deliberate, since its development was obviously deliberate. And the excuses about needing to make deadly viruses so vaccines could be made ahead of time just in case Nature created such a virus (or even some other group of humans) is utter nonsense since there are what? millions? of possible combinations of atoms in the molecular structure? Billions? How dumb do they think we are that we would believe they would just happen to guess what combinations/mutations would appear in the future so they could pre-make vaccines for them? Obviously their real intent was nothing but the creation of a bioweapon, and why spend that much money unless they planned all along to deploy it? The Democrats NEEDED a pandemic to give them the excuse to do massive voting by mail so they could steal the election, as the Russian Defense Minister just pointed out. The Dems knew that they could never beat Trump except by cheating.

"We have swine flu today. Maybe we’ll have fish flu tomorrow, because we used to produce viruses by controlling them. It is a commercial business. Capitalist companies produce viruses so they can generate and sell vaccines. It is very shameful and unethical. Vaccines and drugs should not be sold."

For sure Russian and China ruin their planet domination plans (Pinky and the Brain) but - the scary part is (as Alexander Mercouris likes to say) - these guys have no reverse gear so they will have to be stopped, and this might mean WW3 with nukes.

I would be more hopeful if they started rebuilding the industrial base in US (meaning that they came to terms with the idea that they can't win), but they don't, because they are in for total World domination...

Come to think of it, Schwab looks a bit like The Brain, while Yuval like Pinky :P...

Perhaps they know they have gone too far. Psychologists believe that criminals may start doing stupid things because subconsciously they want to get caught. Schwab and his ilk must be insane. That makes them unpredictable, but apparently they have extensively written about their plans for world domination, so they are no secret. By knowing their "game plan" we have a shot at getting out ahead of them, but it might be pretty "iffy" for a while. However, I have an opinion that evil, insane people just naturally make mistakes because they ARE insane, which makes them disconnected from reality, and that lack of understanding of reality makes it inevitable that they will misjudge things and screw up, big time. We just hope that they don't cause a major nuclear war in the meantime.

Thank you for linking me to this. I left this comment there:

"One of my readers sent me here. Thank you for compiling this. Do you know who presently owns the patent on it? My team identified a seperate drug candidate that seemed to have a peculiarly high affinity for binding and neutralizing the spike protein that was FDA approved and then never brought to market and owned by a shell company....so we suspect there may be a few drugs held in limbo in case the wealthy ever need them to treat the virus.

Separate from that, there are a few very reliable universal anti-viral therapies that have been in use for decades but kept out of conventional medicine, and I have always thought that was to sustain the mythology you can only "treat" viruses with vaccines or occassionally a custom antiviral that is fairly expensive, partially effective and requiring indefinite consumption."

"Whether Sars-Cov-2 was released deliberately, or accidentally is, of course, a question of utmost importance and a very difficult one to answer. There is evidence pointing both ways and there is not yet enough evidence to make this conclusion."
