DID CHINA WEAPONIZE COVID-19?

by Jim Watkins

Did China develop and accidently allow a weaponized virus to escape in Wuhan?

The story really begins in 2009 in Winnipeg, Canada at a bio-weapons research lab, and as reported in the Winnipeg Free Press,  two Chinese nationals were able to steal 22 vials containing an unknown strain of a new virus and escaped back to China. These vials contained the coronavirus strain taken from a Saudi nationals’ lung who been infected with SARS.

Back to the future. 

It is worth noting, due to its suspicious timing, that the very doctor behind the discovery and extraction of the unknown virus strain in Winnipeg, and who also reported the theft, was set to give a speech on January 23, 2020 in Kenya at the University of Nairobi, except that Dr Frank Plummer died suddenly. He had been working on a vaccine for HIV, and was expected to share some of his research which reportedly could have applications to helping find a vaccine for COVID-19.

The BBC says Dr. Plummer died from a heart attack at the age of 67.

What we know is that the coronavirus was stolen from Plummers’ lab by two Chinese nationals, Xiangguo Qiq and her colleague, smuggled the virus samples and took them to Wuhan where they have China’s only bio-weapons lab, and have since, held it in their possession for over a decade.

What we also know from reports inside the facility is that bats were used for testing of the new coronavirus, 605 of them. One staff researcher is on record stating blood from one of the infected bats got on his skin, and that also, ticks were discovered on the bats. We know that ticks can be a common carrier of disease (i.e., the Bubonic plague).

We also, suspect, though it is not confirmed, that some laboratories will sell dead or live animals to local food markets to avoid the higher costs of incinerating or properly disposing of animal carcass used in testing. The fact that the Wuhan Lab is only 3 and a half miles from the seafood market makes it seem likely the virus made its way to the fish market from the lab, though this has never been proven.  But, as biowar expert Dr. Frank Boyles states, “the virus came into the food market before it came out,” meaning an infected person had come into the fish market and infected others. It probably was not, contradictory to earlier reports, emanating from an animal sold at the market.

Many now believe earlier infections occurred at a nearby hospital or, most likely coming from an infected person at the Wuhan BSL-4 lab, who may have unknowingly became a superspreader since a person infected can also be asymptomatic for up to 24 days.

We will probably never know the exact circumstances that led to the initial spread of COVID-19. But we do know the CCP knew about the lab, knew about the virus ,and were in fact, probably working on either a vaccine, or trying to weaponize the virus, or both.

We suspect, based on the further testimony from lab personnel in Wuhan, someone was treated at a local hospital who had shown signs of the coronavirus as early as November. It is likely the patient, what we might term patient Zero, infected the doctor who then spread the virus to other staff, and consequently, other patients as well.

We believe it is this scenario that prompted Chinese health officials to, at first, deny the outbreak (and even the virus itself), arresting anyone who discussed the virus in December and early January, and denying the outbreak until as late as January 21, 2020 – three weeks after the first case was reported at Union Hospital in Wuhan.

DID BEIJING KNOW? ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

We believe Beijing knews it was the coronavirus they had stolen that had spread, because they: 

1) Still will not allow U.S. CDC health officials in to Wuhan

2) They denied the problem for over 8 weeks, then jumped zealously as if they had a pandemic on their hands (because they probably knew how dangerous the virus was) AND

3) Once it became apparent that the virus could not be contained,  China started taking severe containment action that reflects they were very well aware of the danger of this virus because of:

The mass arrests of suspected asymptomatic citizens

The sealing of apartment complexes and large dwelling areas to prevent people from leaving their residences

Large forces have been mobilized to sterilize entire neighborhoods without restraint in an almost desperate action

The underreporting of crematoriums who are working fully-staffed, 12 hour shifts throughout Wuhan disposing of dead bodies of both humans and animals.

The uncanny statistic showing there is always about the same percentage of deaths to infections at 2.1 percent. It has not wavered since reporting first began, which indicates almost a quota-like policy in reporting fatalities, or a specific mandate was issued to never let the mortality rate get too high, which would reveal the real impact of the virus, or spread panic.

THE GENIE IS OUT OF THE BOTTLE

So the question becomes: If the Chinese were working on weaponizing this virus, who were they planning on using it on?

To believe this virus came from a bat during hibernation season when there are no bats within 600 miles of Wuhan (except at Wuhan Labs being used as testing animals) is to believe in propaganda.

There is a clear link between the Wuhan BSL-4, Coronavirus and the Winnipeg laboratory where Dr. Frank Plummer had worked on the virus going back to 2009, and we have limited testimony from Wuhan Lab workers who talk about using bats to test the virus on, and that some personnel might have become infected.

We also know that one of the first victim of the virus, Li Wenliang, a local doctor at Wuhan Central Hospital hospital, had alerted his staff via email to prepare for an outbreak. He was subsequently placed under house arrest for causing unrest, where he cared for his wife who had contracted the disease within weeks of its first appearance, which indicates the coronavirus was released into the general public as far back as early December OR there might have been a controlled test of exposing COVID-19 to a few people, but that things got out of control because Chinese researchers had underestimated the infection rate, and how easy to was to spread. 

Early reports say the corona virus can be spread just by breathing on someone. In recent days this report has completely vanished. But if it is true that COVID-19 is airborne, it woudl also explain why so many passengers on board the Diamond Princess  got infected even though no one showed signs of sickness until just a few days ago. The ship had left port 14 days ago.

Still, there are many unanswered question. The geopolitical ramifications of this virus being the product of bio-chemical warfare are immense. When you have the 2nd major world power producing bio-weapons, the world will be forced to respond and China will be forced to answer for it.

We will continue to follow this story where it leads. It is not for the purposes of providing conspiracy to confuse or to create unnecessary fear, but rather to determine the real global threat of this virus, and to learn if China is in fact, deliberately responsible, actually liable, for the damage now being done around the world.


The Very Real Existential Threat

Commentary by Jim Watkins

You have probably heard about to Communist threat?

Secretary of State this week commented on the threat, reminding us that it is the greatest threat facing America. But does the average citizen really know what that means? Do we think it means China wants to land on our shores and take over our cities? Do we think the threat means China wants to bomb us?

No. It is none of these obvious, perhaps even archaic and more traditional threats. It is much more subtle, and in fact is on multiple fronts. The least of which is the economic threat. Never doubt the Chinese would like to have an upper hand on the American economy,but because it is a closed system, it will never achieve our level of success. Like it or not, Free market capitalism has as its greatest advantage, transparency, it is a meritocracy based on economic fundamentals that means everyone agrees to play by the rules. In China, a communist dictatorship, the only transparency is what the government wants people to believe.

But lets take a look at the two other grave threats China poses to the West.

1. The Communist philosophy. Remember, a godless government means government can dictate rights.  The doctrine is being taught to our children in college. It is the idea that the collective is more important than the individual, the State or , Big Government can solve the major problems like health care, income inequality, even to a certain degree, gender-equality, but the cost is the State regulates everything. This is China, this is North Korea, Cuba, Venezuela, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, places where the Government, those in power, make the rules and oppress all who oppose. Religious freedom in many of the countries is a death sentence, the right to assembly, the right to protest, the right to own property is gone. And yet 35% of our youth say socialism, which is the basis and foundation by which Communism is based, is a good idea, that paternal government, is a better approach to governing. This is an existential threat to the idea of a democratic republic where individual rights are bestowed upon us by our Creator, and that government serves people, not the other way around.

It would be wrong to suggest that China trying to subvert people into adopting communism in the United States, but it would be correct to say that any disruption, including social conflicts, that could weaken the political system in the U.S. would be advantageous to the Communist Party of China. One primary reason for destabilizing the U.S. is that it makes us more vulnerable to spying, and in some cases, stealing of American technology to use against us in military application. There are millions of people who wake up everyday and go to work in China as what we would call cybercriminals, but they work for the Ministry of Truth. Their job, to find weakness, to collect data on Americans, to gather information on people who positions of power in American business, politics, and entertainment. If you are not concerned with this, then you underscore the intentions of the Chinese to your own demise.

The second great threat China poses is the exporting of technology to other world government leaders who, like the CCP, could care less about human rights and are excited about the idea of using technology to oppress dissenters and control millions of people through social credit scores and monitoring. You might not care about this, you jight even think it is not dissimilar to the way the U.S has a credit agency, and that everyone shares thier data, so whats the big deal? Except that I would remind you that the Government, at least not yet, is using tech to monitor every transaction to to use the ability to cut you off, as a way to pressure you into complicity. This is the ugly face of Totalitarianism.

And i you think this is all some dystopian scare tactic,YouTube Social Credit Score in China and see what comes up. It will frighten you, and you will come to understand that when Mike Pompeo says China is a bigger threat than people imagine, you better believe it.

The purpose of Speaking Out if awareness. I will bring you awareness. If you believe Freedom, religious freedom, social and economic freedom and limited government is good and worth preserving, then let’s work together. 

I will bring you updates, and you share these updates withouthers. We simply cannot live in the shadows. It is time to pick sides, and its not about Trump verses No Trump. Its much bigger than that. The real threat is the attempt for other world leaders and governments to marginalize the U.S., marginalize freedom of speech, marginalize freedom of religions express.

Why Hong Kong Should Matter to Americans

Commentary by JR Watkins, Contributor

August 9, 2019


Our Western media really knows how to kill a story, or in the least, make the story uninteresting because the media itself doesn’t really understand it. And by media I mean Western Journalists who are more preoccupied with Trump than they are with the ruthless mega-monster known as China.


Hong Kong is scared, and they should be. Breathing down their necks is a regime that is in lockdown-mode when it comes to surveillance and strict population control. It stopped being about extradition rights 9 months ago. It is now about freedom itself, and the fact that the American flag is the Hong Kongers flag of choice is telling.

You see, for all of those taught in U.S. public school systems, Hong Kong used to be under British rule until 1997, that is when Hong Kong became part of China, with the stipulation that the small Island State could retain its free-market policies, meaning it could remain relatively independent from Communist China. One Country, Two-Systems was the mandate, but recently things have changed.

For one thing China’s economy is a fraud and they know it. It’s like Jinga, only this tower is so high up and wobbly no one can even see the top.

The escalating U.S. China trade war is also not helping. Chinese needs America to buy its stuff, and Trump knows it. Meanwhile, two things have been taking place in China for the past few years, more surveillance (thanks to new and much-improved technology), and China’s crackdown on dissidents. Usually when you have a “crackdown” it means people at the top are nervous. The CCP needs Hong Kings’ money, I think, because they have run out of their own. But more importantly, China needs obedience. If the mainlanders start hearing about resistance, the fire could spread. Right now China can control its people because it has the tech and the fear to do it. But not so in Hong Kong (this is why you see a lot of protestors wearing masks, which prevents their image from being captured by face-recognition technology).

What happens next is anyone’s guess, but Americans who think it doesn’t matter should remember that if China wins this, it means they gain strength. If they lose, we have the upper hand and Trump will have scored a major victory going into 2020. A broken China is defined as giving in to the resistance of Hong Kong protestors and backing off. Not likely in the long term, but in the short term, it might be prudent for China to fight this battle another day, which they are wont to do.

Remember, China has its own domestic issues at home: high unemployment, urban sprawl, a weak Yuan and of course, a trade deal that keeps them afloat unless Trump dangles the carrot too long.

A fallen regime in China is like the wall coming down in East Berlin in 1989. That was a gift to Reagan, but it also ushered in greater democracy and free markets for Europe, not to mention millions of former Soviets who lives would vastly improve in a free-market system (too bad leadership hasn’t improved in Russia, but some things take time).

China is the Stalinist empire of the 21st Century. They have concentration camps, they kill people because of their faith, they sell organs taken from prisoners, they export their wicked surveillance and social monitoring software to world despots (like Venezuela and Iran), and they are the largest country by population in the world, so yes, they need to go down, and go down hard.

Hong Kong is waving our flag, hello?

It is Time for Change in China

Commentary by James R. Watkins, Editor

Why does China behave so badly on the world stage?

Obviously China still thinks it can do what it wants and no one will find out about it.

The Communist regime seems to think we don’t know they are taking people to re-education camps and torturing them. I guess Chinese people have never heard of 1984, or George Orwell, or Aldous Huxley and Brave New World. I guess they must think we buy into their propaganda.

What gives China the right to steal other people’s intellectual property to avoid paying for someone else’s innovation? I suppose in a communist regime, there is no individual property rights, so to them, stealing someone else’s ideas is perfectly normal. No wonder they are so horrible at innovation.


Why is what many would consider the home of the worlds wisest philosophies, namely Buddhism and Confucianism, be so ignorant to their own rich religious culture, and instead, embrace a blind atheism? Does the Communist party really believe they can stamp out a person’s yearning for truth? Does the CCP really assert it knows for sure there is no spiritual ideal, an ideal that for thousands of years, has benefitted Chinese culture?


And how long does China believe it can continue to oppress its people, keeping them stupid and uninformed when all around them, invisible and unable to control information is free flowing.

China has a choice. It can continue to spend every resource it has to control and regulate its population of over 2 billion people, or it can set them free, instilling in them loyalty to the ideal of China, which is peace through prosperity, instead of the idea of China, which is to oppress dissent and inflict pain upon its citizens in order to reinforce fear in its communities. This cannot stand, nor will the human spirit be vanquished. History shows us time and time again that when people are oppressed they will eventually revolt.

Hong Kong has lit the fuse that will ignite the passion for freedom elsewhere in mainland China. Your economy will not yield for 14 months as you await to see if your trading nemesis Donald Trump goes away, and you risk your BRI as your dollar becomes weaker. Sending people back to the farms will not solve your problems.

China has a choice. It can change for the better, loosen its grip on power and have faith in its people, or it can go the way of so many other regimes who believed they could hold on to power forever, to the bloodshed of many, to the survival of few who held to such hubris notions of invincibility.
