US National Security STILL Believes Coronavirus LEAKED From Chinese Lab

Senior US official says lab escape is most ‘credible’ theory

Top US National Security officials still believe that the most credible theory on the origin of COVID-19 is that it escaped from a Chinese laboratory.

The comments were made by National Security Adviser Matthew Pottinger, during a recent Zoom meeting with UK officials, according to reports.

Pottinger, a former China correspondent for Reuters and The Wall Street Journal, pointed to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, and said that “China’s leaders openly admit their previous claims that the virus originated in a Wuhan market are false.”

“Even establishment figures in Beijing have openly dismissed the wet market story,” Pottinger noted, as he also blasted the World Health Organization’s ongoing investigation into the origin of the outbreak as a distraction.

“MPs around the world have a moral role to play in exposing the WHO investigation as a Potemkin exercise,” Pottinger said.

The reference is to fake villages that were created in 18th Century Crimea to convince the visiting Russian Empress Catherine the Great that the region was prospering.

Pottinger worked in military intelligence for over a decade, before moving to the US National Security Council in 2017. He also has a brother who is a top virologist at the University of Washington.

The report notes that former Conservative party leader Iain Duncan-Smith, who was on the Zoom call, said the lab leak theory has been provided extra credibility by a whistleblower from the Wuhan institute providing information to the US team.

“I was told the US have an ex-scientist from the laboratory in America at the moment,” Duncan-Smith said, adding “I was led to believe this is how they have been able to stiffen up their position on how this outbreak originated.”

The MP noted that China’s refusal to cooperate with investigators and journalists has only served to strengthen the lab leak position.

 “The truth is there are people who have been in those labs who maintain that this is the case,” he noted, adding “We don’t know what they have been doing in that laboratory. They may well have been fiddling with bat coronaviruses and looking at them and they made a mistake. I’ve spoken to various people who believe that to be the case.”

It previously emerged that the Wuhan lab had held a coronavirus sample that was 96.2 per cent the same as Covid-19 for almost a decade. This prompted the speculation about the origin of the virus.

Several prominent researchers and scientists have also noted that the lab must be investigated given this fact.

In addition, previous reports have suggested that the Institute took a shipment of some of the world’s deadliest pathogens just weeks before the outbreak of the coronavirus. It is also known that the lab was tampering with natural pathogens and mutating them to become more infectious.

Intelligence figures across the globe have also called for the Wuhan lab to be investigated.

Chinese virologists recently fled Hong Kong and effectively defected to the West, with evidence against the Chinese Communist Party concerning its role in the COVID-19 pandemic.

The WHO previously complained that it had ‘not been invited’ by China to investigate the outbreak, and has continually been criticised for propping up Communist Party talking points.

In August, the WHO announced that it would not be visiting the Wuhan Institute of Virology during its investigation into the origins of the coronavirus, despite the evidence outlined above.

The health body then did an about turn and said it would actually be visiting the lab after all, after a backlash ensued.

The investigation STILL has not gotten underway, close to a year after the outbreak began.

The Wuhan lab director has complained that scientists at the facility are being made scapegoats in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, and that the lab has been unfairly made the centre of dangerous ‘conspiracy theories’, following US intelligence suggestions that it could have been the origin for the viral spread.

Lockdown Advocate Now Says Official COVID Infection Rates are “Fishy” Because They’re Dropping

Calm down, conspiracy theorist.

Lockdown advocates who have repeatedly cited rising infection rates as a reason to maintain restrictions are now saying that those same figures are “fishy,” “suspicious,” and unreliable after they started to drop.

Who are the ‘conspiracy theorists’ now?

Reported COVID cases in the UK have dropped by 22% since Thursday last week and cases are falling in every English local authority.

Up until Wednesday, official day to day statistics showed that cases had dropped for seven days in a row, despite restrictions largely being lifted on July 19th.

The fact that the Euro football championships, ‘freedom day’ and the delta variant haven’t combined to create an explosion of new COVID cases seems to have disappointed lockdown advocates like Professor Tim Spector.

According to Spector, who previously called for mask mandates to remain indefinitely, the “sudden drop” in people testing positive for the virus in the government’s data is “very suspicious”.

“It’s dropped something like 30% in two days, which is pretty much unheard of in pandemics, and remember this is happening without restrictions, without lockdowns, without some sudden event,” said Spector.

“To me, it looks a bit fishy. It looks as if there’s some other explanation for this other than suddenly the virus has given up,” he added.

OK, calm down Mr. tin foil hat.

Spector’s rhetoric is particularly funny given that the media has previously demonized anyone who questions official government statistics on COVID infection rates and death tolls as dangerous conspiracy theorists.

Now that the numbers appear to be disproving the argument for lockdown, suddenly those numbers are “suspicious” and unreliable.

As we previously highlighted, Professor Neil Ferguson, the epidemiologist who predicted there would be as many as 200,000 COVID cases a day by this point, was also proven spectacularly wrong yet again.

This also speaks to the fact that lockdown advocates who have built up significant acclaim and media exposure over the last 16 months are seemingly upset that the pandemic might be coming to an end.

Irate Twitter mobs who have repeatedly demanded harsher lockdowns also seem to be genuinely upset when COVID infection rates and death tolls begin to drop.

While all the time grandstanding as “kind” and “compassionate” as they screech at you for “killing granny.”

Chaos Erupts in Italian Parliament Over Vaccine Passport Plans

Resistance to medical martial law builds in Europe.

Chaos erupted in the Italian parliament earlier over plans to introduce domestic vaccine passports, with MPs holding up protest signs that said “no green pass.”

A video clip shows one MP being pursued by security officials as he attempts to hold the sign aloft before fleeing the chamber.

However, he is followed by numerous other MPs holding the same sign who then move to occupy the room.

The Italian government has introduced one of the most draconian versions of the vaccine passport in Europe.

From next month, anyone wishing to enter cinemas, theatres, exhibitions, museums, sporting events, private parties, festivals, trade fairs, swimming pools, and gyms will have to prevent proof of vaccination or negative COVID infection status.

“The pass will also be mandatory for all those wishing to access restaurants, bars, and pastry shops,” reports SchengenVisaInfo.

Tourists entering the country will also be mandated to sign up for the green pass.

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi justified the introduction of the rules by citing the spread of the delta variant.

“The Delta variant is threatening. It spreads much more quickly than other variants. I invite all Italians to get vaccinated and to do so straight away. Without vaccinations, we’d have to close everything again,” Draghi said.

As we highlighted last week, Italians have been vociferously protesting against the measure, with demonstrators in Turin chanting “no dictatorship” during one rally.

Australia Calls in Military to Enforce Lockdown

Authorities in Australia have called in the military to occupy parts of Sydney and enforce the country’s latest draconian COVID-19 lockdown.

Hundreds of military personnel will be drafted in to patrol the country’s largest city despite coronavirus cases remaining in the low hundreds per day, far lower than other developed nations like the UK that have lifted some of the restrictions.

It remains to be seen whether the troops will be used to police protesters, hundreds of thousands of whom hit the streets of major cities last weekend to demonstrate against the measures.

People in New South Wales are basically under the most draconian form of lockdown where they are only allowed to leave home for work, exercise and food and are not permitted to venture more than 3 miles from where they live.

Mask wearing both indoors and outdoors is again mandatory as the country pursues a bizarre and unattainable ‘zero COVID’ policy which has led to entire towns and cities being locked down after the discovery of just a single infection.

As we have previously highlighted, Australians have been placed under one of the most authoritarian lockdowns out of any major developed country.

A pregnant woman was arrested in her own home for planning an anti-lockdown protest on Facebook, while the state also gave itself the power to seize children from their parents and enter homes without a warrant under COVID-19 rules.

The chief health officer of New South Wales even went so far as to tell Australians that they shouldn’t “engage in conversation with each other,” even if they’re wearing masks, in order to reduce the transmission of COVID.

Australian MP Frank Pangallo also recently asserted that unvaccinated people “will need to be controlled and restricted” by authorities.
