Recently, federal US officials ended a moratorium imposed on the funding of research to alter bacteria or viruses to make them more lethal.
Now, work to engineer lethal viruses can continue, said Dr. Francis Collins, head of the NIH (National Institutes of Health), but with the requirement that a “scientific panel” evaluate that the benefits outweigh the risks of a particular endeavor.
Unfortunately, the “benefits” mentioned include producing vaccines from the research (which many people are already weary of), and history shows us that the US government does whatever it wants with biological warfare regardless of legality.
The official line of course is that scientists are eager to engineer viruses to be more lethal for strictly research purposes: to show “how a bird flu could mutate to more easily infect humans,” or “yield clues to making a better vaccine,” according to the SF Gate.
“Critics say these researchers risk creating a monster germ that could escape the lab and seed a pandemic. Now, a government panel will require that researchers show that their studies in this area are scientifically sound and that they will be done in a high-security lab.
The pathogen to be modified must pose a serious health threat, and the work must produce knowledge — such as a vaccine — that would benefit humans. Finally, there must be no safer way to do the research. ‘We see this as a rigorous policy,’ Collins said. ‘We want to be sure we’re doing this right.’
In October 2014, all federal funding was halted on efforts to make three viruses more dangerous: the flu virus, and those causing Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).”
This article lacks context because if you know even recent history on the topic, you’d know that viruses and bacteria escape “high security labs” all the time.
Here is a brief list of events to add perspective to this.
In 1994, Dr. Garth Nicolson at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas discovered that several veterans returning from operation Desert Storm were infected with a strain of Mycoplasma incognitus that was visibly altered. It is a microbe commonly used to produce biological weapons.
40 percent of the HIV protein coat was found in its molecular structure, proving it had been man-made.
Did the US government try to create a biological weapon, and intentionally or unintentionally infect its own soldiers? One headline reads “Mycoplasma Experiments Conducted in Texas Prisons.” I guess soldiers are treated as subjects just the same as prisoners.
In 2002, a power outage at the Plum Island Animal Disease Center, including the failure of all three backup generators “raised fears for the first time that the containment of infectious pathogens could have been seriously compromised at the laboratory,” according to the NY Times.
In 2004, a researcher was infected with a biological weapons agent known as Valley Fever they were studying at the Medical University of Ohio’s BSL-3 facility.
In 2005, a containment facility failed again, and workers were exposed to tuberculosis when BSL-3 “fail-safe” systems malfunctioned. At the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a blower pushed out the contaminated air, infecting the entire workroom with tuberculosis. The “fail-safe” facility had been inspected just a month prior by the US Army.
In 2005, an incident occurred that was only revealed in 2009, due to whistleblowing watchdog organization Tri-Valley Cares obtaining documents. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, also identified as a player in geoengineering (spraying the skies) by researcher Peter Kirby, conducted “restricted experiments” with “select biological agents” at the facility: the law didn’t matter to them then, and it doesn’t matter now. 5 individuals ended up infected with anthrax in an incident they tried to cover up.
In 2001, a devastating outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease hit the British farming industry, leading to the government-mandated killing of millions of infected animals. Farmers even committed suicide, the destruction was so intense.
By April 2001, the Sunday Express reported that the outbreak occurred months after the revelation that Porton Down, a top secret government biowarfare research facility that contained such pathogens as anthrax, smallpox, and TB, was “missing” samples of foot-and-mouth. According to the Corbett Report:
“Authorities tried to play down the report by suggesting that “animal rights activists” had stolen and released the samples from the maximum security government laboratory. Authorities failed to explain why animal rights activists would be interested in releasing a biological agent that would result in the destruction of millions of animals, or how they were able to penetrate the multiple layers of defenses in the heavily defended laboratory.”
A 2016 headline about the Porton Down biowarfare facility is titled “Shocking amount of monkeys, rabbits, and pigs MUTILATED in Government test labs.”
Remember the Anthrax attacks that followed 9/11? Well, the Anthrax actually came from US biowarfare labs. They tried to cover this up, but researchers wouldn’t let the truth be buried.
According to the description of the video:
“Robbie Martin of AVeryHeavyAgenda.com joins us to talk about his research into the anthrax attacks of 2001. We discuss how false information claiming an Iraqi link to the attacks was sowed via the mainstream media and how the story largely disappeared when the anthrax traced back to the US government’s own bioweapons labs. We also update the case and talk about some of the legitimate suspects in the attacks.”
Are more examples of viruses or bacteria escaping their “fail-proof” facilities necessary to prove it happens all the time?
So what if the new laws don’t actually lead to deadly viruses being released on accident? No good will come out of this anyway, because they want vaccines.
The hard truth is, just about every single vaccine in existence is known to cause injury and some can cause death. The MMR vaccine (measles/mumps/rubella) is of course strongly linked to autism, the topic of the documentary “Vaxxed,” and it contains mercury.
The standard Sanofi flu shot still contains mercury, and is also linked to injury and death. In fact, 275 injuries and 4 deaths were officially attributed to the flu vaccine in less than a year from 11/16/16 to 8/15/17, according to government reports.
Experimental vaccines injure people all the time as well. In 1990, over 1,500 six month old black and Hispanic babies in Los Angeles were subjected to an “experimental” measles vaccine, never approved or licensed for use or anything: injuries occurred.
Ever heard of Merck, one of the world’s largest vaccine producers? Well the president of Merck literally led the US’ biological warfare program during World War 2, secretly while still being in charge of Merck.
Recently a crisis began to unfold in the Philippines, in which the world’s largest vaccine producer Sanofi unloaded a Dengue vaccine on the population that one, isn’t effective, and two, may actually cause the disease. It has reportedly killed children. One headline reads “730,000 Filipino Children Receive Faulty Dengue Vaccine Which Causes Dengue Rather Than Preventing it.”
If you need more information about vaccine injury, take a look at this massive compilation of injuries and deaths from an official government source: the Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It was summarized in an article titled “Government Issues First Report in 2017 on Vaccine Injuries and Deaths: 275 Injured 4 Dead from Flu Shot.”
Nothing good could possibly come from government experiments with lethal viruses.
However, the government does what it wants regardless of the law: so the legality of this is probably inconsequential, but the fact that they are talking about it is not a good sign.
