Back in May, after coming under considerable pressure for canceling a Trump ordered State Department investigation into the origins of COVID-19, President Biden ordered the US intelligence community to conduct a 90-day investigation into the viruses origins. Though the report still remains classified at this time, anonymous officials leaked to the Washington Post that the results are inconclusive.

It is worth noting that Fu Cong, director-general of China’s Foreign Ministry’s Arms Control Department recently stated that they “…do not accept baseless and unfounded accusations that are politically motivated. And if they want to baselessly accuse China, so they better be prepared to accept the counterattack from China.” Does that sound like a threat?

We will be joined today by Richard Muller, Professor Emeritus of physics at the University of California, Berkeley, who recently testified before the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Select Coronavirus Crisis hearing, stating that “We have a whistleblower, the virus itself.” He will explain “five compelling sets of scientific evidence that allow us to reach this very strong conclusion that, yes, it was a laboratory leak”. Which begs the question, “Why is the Biden administration avoiding this conclusion?”

Expert Scientists Testify On Virus Origin
“In my mind, there are five compelling sets of scientific evidence that allow us to reach this very strong conclusion that, yes, it was a laboratory leak,” Muller said. Dr. Steven Quay, the first scientist to testify, came to the same conclusion that COVID-19 has a laboratory origin, based on “six undisputed facts that support this hypothesis.”https://www.organicconsumers.org/news/expert-scientists-testify-virus-origin

China Warns of Retaliation Ahead of U.S. Report on Virus Origins
“We will continue to cooperate with international organizations like the WHO in their research and in their search for the origins,” said Fu Cong, director-general of the Foreign Ministry’s Arms Control Department. “But we do not accept baseless and unfounded accusations that are politically motivated. And if they want to baselessly accuse China, so they better be prepared to accept the counterattack from China.”

Biden receives inconclusive intelligence report on covid origins
The assessment is the result of a 90-day sprint after Biden tasked his intelligence agencies in May to produce a report “that could bring us closer to a definitive conclusion” on the origins of a virus that has killed more than 4 million people globally and wrecked national economies. But despite analyzing a raft of existing intelligence and searching for new clues, intelligence officials fell short of a consensus, said the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the report is not yet public.

US intel community still can’t identify COVID origins months after Biden ordered new investigation: report
“The officials who spoke with the Washington Post said the intelligence community will seek to declassify elements of their report for potential public release within a matter of days.”

China Losing Pakistan, Calls America and India ‘Enemies’ | Opinion

“Two suicide bombings in Pakistan—last week and last month—have taken the lives of 11 Chinese nationals and cast doubt about the viability of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. CPEC, as the $62 billion plan is known, is the centerpiece of Xi Jinping’s Belt and Road (BRI), his global infrastructure initiative.

Zimbabwe under complete Chinese control: Is anyone noticing?
“It is common knowledge that the Chinese company owners do not pay any heed to Zimbabwean law, the citizens’ legal rights and instead discriminate them from the onsite Chinese miners by paying them lowly wages of merely US$ 35 per month. It has also been reported that these employers assault the local employees by forcing them to operate in dangerous, inhuman, harsh and life-threatening conditions, amounting to slavery.”

Why Is China Building 250 Nuclear Missiles That Can Hit America?

“This newly discovered ICBM field is expected to add a minimum of 30 to 36 new silos to the People’s Liberation Army Rocket Force’s land-based missile arsenal—on top of some 200 new missile silos unveiled by other analysts earlier this summer. In total, we could be looking at 250-plus new Chinese ICBM silos.”

WSJ Op-Ed: Covid-19 Most Likely ‘Worked On’ In Lab, Then Escaped
“The story of SARS-Cov-2 started long before January 2020. We believe the virus was most likely uncontained in a laboratory where it was being worked on, and that it escaped unintentionally. A Harvard study of satellite images revealed a shutdown of traffic around the Wuhan lab in the late summer and early fall of 2019. Weeks later, in late September, the hospital parking lots were filling up.”

Havana Syndrome stokes fear and frustration among diplomats over response from State Department
“On the whole, US diplomats who spoke to CNN said they worry about the psychological impact the phenomenon has had, and whether it demonstrates that whoever is behind it has succeeded in its goals of sowing fear and confusion in a way that could eventually hinder the State Department’s ability to do its work.”
