Chinese Whistleblower to Tucker Carlson: Coronavirus Was Man-Made And Released Intentionally
Townhall.com ^ | September 16, 2020 | Matt Vespa

Posted on 09/16/2020 5:32:22 AM PDT by Kaslin

The Chinese scientist who alleges that the coronavirus that has spread throughout the world was man-made emerged for an interview with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. Dr. Li-Meng Yan came forward recently to allege that the coronavirus was a lab-manufactured disease that did not come from nature and that the wet market story was a “smoke screen” aimed to pivot attention away from this virus’ apparent release. Dr. Yan said that this virus was China’s Frankenstein monster. Carlson asked about China’s motives in creating this virus if it is man-made, which Dr. Yan said you’d have to ask the Chinese Communist Party.

“We cannot always understand their evil thinking,” she said.  You have to ask them. They released it. When the Fox News host later asked if this was an intentional outbreak, Dr. Yan said it was, and added that you don’t really need to read the tea leaves to see what the government has done to cover this up. Let’s circle back to Fox News’ April story, where sources told them that this was the “costliest government cover-up of all time.” The story also alleged that the virus was created in a laboratory, but not as a weapon. 

It was part of “China's effort to demonstrate that its efforts to identify and combat viruses are equal to or greater than the capabilities of the United States.”

We knew that Chinese scientists destroyed samples of the pathogen back in December of 2019. Vloggers and citizen journalists trying to document life during the outbreak have vanished. Doctors who tried to warn the wider public of the dangers were being strong-armed. China sat on their hands for nearly a week knowing this outbreak would spread. They also knew about human-to-human transmission while saying something totally different to the public. 

Dr. Yan said she will be publishing a report detailing her evidence that the coronavirus was made in a lab soon. She detailed her credentials on the show as well (via RCP):

Coronavirus whistleblower speaks out about possible COVID origin on 'Tucker'

I work[ed] in the WHO reference lab which is the top coronavirus lab in the world, in the University of Hong Kong. And the thing is I get deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak. I had my intelligence because I also get my own unit network in China, involved [in] the hospital ... also I work with the top corona[virus] virologist in the world... So, together with my experience, I can tell you, this is created in the lab ... and also, it is spread to the world to make such damage."

We’ll see. We need that report

Of course.

The CCP uses their Virus to derail America's Economy, President Trump's Reelection, even Brexit.

And our useful idiots here in the west willing go right along.

https://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/coronavirus/the-covid-files-australianfunded-coronavirus-paper-used-in-chinese-military-facility/news-story/7241a6b112816f3951495e0fa52ed2aa

And note the above report from the Daily Telegraph.

It at least corroborates one allegation by Dr. Li Meng Yan that sequencing and virus isolation was done by laboratories run by the PLA in China.

What we CANNOT as of now, give credibility to, is her accusation that it was deliberately engineered as a bioweapon. I still find this notion that they would deliberately do it to be incredible.

I am still open to the theoretical possibility that an accidental leak happened. There are other prominent scientists who still believe this and I am not going to close the door to that possibility.

I don’t think that there is a scientific conflict between the notion that it came from nature ( e.g. bats ), and that it was carelessly handled in a lab.

Note first that it’s not a conspiracy theory; it’s an *accident hypothesis*, which as of today, I cannot dismiss out of hand.

And we should not mix up the claim of an accidental leak of a naturally occurring virus with the claim that the virus was constructed or manipulated in a laboratory to become more potent as Dr. Li Meng-Yan insists.

“I don’t think that there is a scientific conflict between the notion that it came from nature ( e.g. bats ), and that it was carelessly handled in a lab.”

Not according to Dr. Li-Meng Yan.....She states emphatically that the virus’ genome displays characteristics that make it impossible to be naturally occurring but was rather was, intentially engineered.

Waiting to see that proof.

This woman seemed really sincere during Tucker’s interview last night. Hopefully she’s got some good security.

Only one thing missing from the headline ...

... by the Chinese Government in Partnership with the Democrats in Congress.

Well, the are bought and paid for by the ChiComs.

I believe for many it is even worse than that.

The CCP knew and correctly calculated our response to their virus.

They knew our stupid Progressive Ruling Class would jump at this chance, they knew the British Government's very nature is to be a top down, hold citizens in contempt authority.

History will look back and marvel on how they played the west like a violin.

The Chinese military has stated in the past, that they want North America for themselves, depopulated without the use of nuclear weapons.

What better way than a biological warfare?

No wonder her report was removed from Twitter (Or was it facebook?)

She is not alone in her assertion that this is a man made virus.

I hope she is somewhere safe and she gets her report to Tucker and others.

(I don’t know why I notice these things, but my goodness...does her her index finger seem unnaturally long?? 1:40 in the video)

I definitely believe Covid-19 was designed in Wuhan. However, I also have to believe there would have been multiple ways to spread the virus in the United States without infecting China first.

Further, the Wuhan lab was locked down around October 4, 2019 for an unknown reason but I think the reason is obvious. That was when the virus was unintentionally released.

It may be they were going to release it anyway but it’s an incredibly sloppy way to attack your enemy.

“I don’t think that there is a scientific conflict between the notion that it came from nature ( e.g. bats ), and that it was carelessly handled in a lab.”

I’m with you on that. It’s also possible that it originated naturally, but was *deliberately* released from a lab. In either case, in any case, after it was clear that a highly infectious disease was spreading, the CCP’s management of the situation was atrocious and irresponsible.

Also, I dont think they’re done perfecting this virus.

Next step:

Releasing the documents and bribes / blackmails that show which top Democrats helped plan and release it...and the internal communications showing them plotting how to destroy the economy with it, deliberately, with malice aforethought, in the belief it would take out Donald Trump's re-election.

If that happens, I predict Antifa and BLM will be next.

(I cut and pasted the below from thedonald.win, it isn’t mine.)

This was originally a comment reply in the Tucker Carlson interview thread, but I’m breaking it out here for easy access and visibility.

Link to paper:

https://zenodo.org/record/4028830#.X1_G1mhKg2z

And here’s the ELI(15) translation of the main points of the paper.

The genomes for COVID-19 and the coronaviruses ZC45 and ZCX21 are very similar

COVID-19 (technically named, SARS-CoV-2) is a coronavirus. If you look at the NCBI database that shows the gene sequences of other coronavirus, it closely matches two related coronaviruses known as ZC45 and ZXC21. (Those particular viruses also happened to be discovered by Chinese researches in 2015.)

Other bat-type coronaviruses are similar to COVID-19, but they come in at about 89% identical over the entire genome. ZC45/ZCX21, however, are in the range of 94%-100% identical to COVID-19, depending on the section you’re looking at.

Like really, really, unusually similar...

There are two particularly interesting gene sequences to look at in COVID-19 and ZC45 (and ZXC21). They are the sections that code for the Orf8 protein and E protein...

Orf8 exists in other coronaviruses, but the sequence will vary a lot between different types. If you look at all other coronaviruses, their Orf8 sequences match COVID-19 with a 58% correspondence. However, ZC45 matches COVID-19’s Orf18 with a 94.2% correspondence. This is weird, because all the other data suggest that Orf8 is a sequence that just plays loosey-goosey between strains, but here we have an unnaturally close identicality. It’s like catching two students cheating on a test because their written answers are so similarly worded.

As for the E protein sequence, it mutates relatively quickly, meaning you’ll find genomic differences even between close generations of the same virus. However, they’ve found some COVID-19 E protein sequences that have a 100% match with ZC45./ZXC21. To put that in perspective, no other coronavirus has been observed with a 100% match to either COVID-19 or ZC45/ZXC21.

There’s this other “natural” virus that supposedly matches COVID-19, but it seems like a fabrication to lead people away from ZX45/ZXC21

The virus is called RaTG13. It’s supposed to be a 96% match to COVID-19. The reason why they think this is bullshit is because RaTG13 is supposed to be found in horseshoe bats but third party researchers found out that the sequence as described probably can’t actually infect horseshoe bats.
Ok, so COVID-19 and ZX45/ZXC21 are nearly identical. What does that prove?

Given their nearly identical nature, two possibilities exist. COVID-19 naturally evolved from ZX45/ZXC21 or ZX45/ZXC21 was used as a template for COVID-19. But which possibility is it? It can’t be evolution because...

There’s a protein in all coronaviruses known as Spike proteins. Spike proteins allow coronaviruses to “spear” the host cell and infect it.

If you compare Spike proteins between COVID-19 and ZX45/ZXC21, they are very similar as expected...BUT they differ in one very significant way. There’s one section that helps give COVID-19 the ability to infect humans instead of bats. This one section “coincidentally” looks a lot like the same section of the virus that caused the 2003’s SARS epidemic.

This one section could not have evolved naturally because if it did, you would expect to see other “evolutionary” changes around that section and throughout the whole protein. Instead what you’re seeing is almost like a copy-and-paste. One part of the protein closely matches the ZX45/ZXC21 virus and the other part closely matches the SARS virus. It’s like a bad photoshop where someone neglected to use the smudge and blur tool.

There is another possibility this not-matching section just popped in through a natural gene swap (like trading Pokemon cards)...which does happen occasionally with viruses. But in order for that to happen, the two trading viruses need to infect the same host at the same time. This is impossible because SARS infects humans but ZX45/ZXC21 only infects bats. Pokemon cards thus cannot be swapped because the otakus aren’t even in the same house.

A final nail in this Spike protein coffin is that if you look at the beginning and end of the not-matching sequence, you find short sequences that happen to be “restrictions sites” that are commonly used in genetic engineering. (A restriction site is a genomic sequence that is easily cut through and pasted into using genetic engineering techniques.) While it’s possible that these sites could just randomly be there, it’s more than extremely unlikely and very suspicious.

One last thing about the COVID-19 Spike protein is that there’s a thing in it called a “furin-cleavage site”. It’s a little complicated, but basically, furin-cleavage sites don’t exist in the particular line of coronaviruses that COVID-19 is associated with, and the ones that do exist are about 60% different from the furin-cleavage site in COVID-19’s Spike protein. Basically, it’s like COVID-19’s furin-cleavage site came out of nowhere.

Take home message: ZX45/ZXC21 appears to be the template that COVID-19 was based on. One particular sequence in COVID-19 appears to be copy-and-pasted from the 2003 SARS virus. It’s nearly statistically impossible and equally illogical that COVID-19 could just randomly evolve a genome that happens to look like a patchwork copy of other viruses.

I won’t get into it, but the rest of the paper is pretty cool. They actually delineate a possible workflow through which you could derive COVID-19 from ZX45/ZXC21. At that point, it’s like rubbing it in everyone’s faces that this is exactly what happened and they’re going to show how they did it.
Well, this was pretty long. Hope I was able to simplify it enough.
