Tell your Congressman! Outlaw bioweapons!
Oh, wait — we did that 33 years ago. Bioweapons were banned by UN treaty in 1972 Bioweapon research has been against US law since the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989. The act was approved unanimously by both houses of Congress and signed into law by President George H. W. Bush.
So, why are there still bioweapons in the US? There must be loopholes in the law. Let’s insist they close the loopholes.
No, actually the law is quite airtight, clearly written and comprehensive. It provides life sentences for anyone who participates, whether at top or bottom of the chain of command.
Whoever knowingly develops, produces, stockpiles, transfers, acquires, retains, or possesses any biological agent, toxin, or delivery system for use as a weapon, or knowingly assists a foreign state or any organization to do so, or attempts, threatens, or conspires to do the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for life or any term of years, or both. There is extraterritorial Federal jurisdiction over an offense under this section committed by or against a national of the United States. [18 U.S. Code § 175 - Prohibitions with respect to biological weapons]
Law Prof. Francis Boyle counts 13,000 American “researchers” who violate this law daily. The US DoD has spent more than $150 billion on bioweapons research in this century. All of this has been outside the law.
President Obama tried to put a stop to bioweapons research when he entered the White House in 2009. The Executive Order didn’t last as long as his first term.
On its face, the 1989 law would seem to cover “gain of function” research. Some of the present bioweapons research is justified as “vaccine development for the future”. “We’re just creating horrific new viral strains so we can study them and figure out what we would do if, someday, a pathogen exactly like this should happen to emerge from the wild.” To you and me, this rationalization seems absurd on its face, but perhaps we need a court decision to tell us that the 1989 law means what the words say.
Prof Boyle, who campaigned for and worded the 1989 law, tells us there is no way to separate defensive from offensive bioweapon research. That is why the wording has to be as broad as it is.
Speaking under oath at a Senate hearing, Dr Fauci has told us his agency doesn’t engage in gain-of-function research. Perhaps a Federal court could tell us whether he committed perjury. (It should go without saying — please don’t assume that my political philosophy aligns with Sen Paul.)
Let’s be clear about what’s at stake
In the 1980s, Lyme Disease began its spread. It now strikes hundreds of thousands of Americans each year, crippling and disabling some fraction, and a recent BMJ study estimates that 14% of the world has had Lyme Disease. Lyme, CT is just a few miles as the crow flies from the Plum Island bioweapons laboratory, and William Bergdorfer, the researchers who “discovered” Lyme disease all but confessed (before he died in 2014) that he actually created it.
A few days after the terror attacks of 9/11, 2001, the Senate passed the USA Patriot Act with just two Senators voting Nay. They were Tom Daschle and Patrick Leahy. Two weeks later, envelopes arrived in the mail for just these two containing weaponized anthrax spores, fine as dust in the air. The genomes of the anthrax were analyzed and traced, not to Islamic fundamentalists, but to the bioweapons laboratory in Fort Detrick, MD. Five people died, but not the Senators themselves.
Bioweapon attacks and releases in Africa have been too frequent to list them all; also too many to be “accidents”.
I and others have cited compelling evidence that the COVID pandemic originated in a laboratory [Meryl Nass, Francis Boyle, Luc Montagnier, Jefrey Sachs, Yuri Degin, Nicholas Wade, myself part 2]. In summary, the evidence is
The spike protein seems to be the toxic payload of the virus, and it is optimized not just for infectivity (which would benefit the virus) but also for doing damage to the host (that’s you and me), proferring no fitness advantage to the virus.
A furin cleavage site makes the virus far more damaging and more infectious. A furin cleave site has never appeared in a Coronavirus before, but published research shows that laboratories have been adding furin cleavage sites to Coronaviruses since at least 2009.
Parts of the spike protein appear to have come from a pangolin virus. Pangolins share no natural habitat with the bats that harbored the ancestors of SARS-CoV-2.
Parts of the spike protein are homologous to the AIDS virus. Authors were forced to retract their paper with the evidence.
Parts of the spike protein were patented by Moderna in 2016.
Both Lyme and COVID have affected people I know, and probably people you know, in devastating ways. This is not an abstract political question. It’s not about the potential for some unthinkable future evil. It’s here and now.
The US DoD has bemoaned the fact that nuclear weapons aren’t “usable”. Since the 1960s, they have known how to make “tiny” atomic bombs that have “only” the explosive power of 1,000 tons of TNT. But the trouble is that the first time you drop one on an enemy, they’re likely to counter with a 2,000 ton version launched against us, and we’re off the the races.
If there’s no such thing as a “usable” nuclear weapon, this is so much more true of biological weapons. Viruses multiply exponentially. And viruses mutate. We cannot launch a bioweapon against an “enemy” without risking that the same agent will soon infect just as many of our friends.
Considerable research effort has gone into adapting bioweapons for genocidal purposes. Pathogens have been engineered to prefer a particular racial group. What are they thinking? Genetic differences across race are tiny, and viruses mutate rapidly. There is no way to limit the target of a bioweapon in today’s interconnected world.
Some foxes and chicken coops
Anthony Fauci, one of the biggest funders of bioweapons research, was the architect of the US response to COVID. Peter Daszak, whose company laundered NIAID money for the Wuhan Institute of Virology, was put in charge of an investigation into COVID origins.
But the issue is much bigger than this. As long as the Gates Foundation funds NPR, what are the chances that NPR is going to come out with an investigative piece connecting Bill Gates to vaccines designed to induce sterility or to bioweapons research?
Far beyond these few individuals, FDA and CDC are supposed to be watchdogs protecting our health, but they have become captured agencies, beholden only to the pharmaceutical industry.
And the same Pharma companies that own our regulatory agencies are the largest funders of university medical research and even of the journals that publish the articles that extol every new miracle drug, and of the mainstream news organs that report on this science. Sickening. Last year, an editor of the BMJ (British Medical Journal) asked, is it time to assume that medical research is fraudulent until proven otherwise?
At every level, people who profit from bioweapons research have been put in charge of “investigating” or “overseeing” or “solving the problem”. If anyone in a position to stanch bioweapons research makes a serious gesture toward doing this, he may receive an envelope in the mail.
What are you going to do when you are done reading this article?
I reserve extreme language for extreme cases — bioweapons are an abomination.
Personally, I think that COVID was a deliberate bioweapon attack. But you don’t have to believe it was deliberate. You don’t even have to believe that COVID came from a laboratory. The scientific record shows that COVID could have come from a laboratory: multiple laboratories have been genetically engineering bat Coronaviruses to infect humans at least since 2007.
Dear Reader, whoever you are, I am going to go out on a limb and assume that you have been inconvenienced by the COVID pandemic. So, what is it worth to you to prevent the next pandemic?
Maybe you’ve been following the latest headlines, and focusing your attention on Mar-a-Lago or Ukraine or Monkeypox. Monkeypox? There’s a good chance that’s also a bioweapon. And one of the prime motives which Putin cites for his invasion of Ukraine is the presence in that country of numerous bioweapons labs.
The news services and social media platforms that command our attention have gotten very good at keeping us feeling scared and powerless. But if you step back and take a deep breath, what could be more important to you than putting an end to bioweapons development?
so WRITE TO YOUR CONGRESSMAN TODAY!
It’s not going to be that easy to end bioweapons, but we can do it. The first crucial step, the most important and necessary step, is to talk about the issue. Bring it up with your friends and family. Shine some daylight.
Have a discussion with someone who shares your basic values. Bring the subject up at an gathering where politics is discussed. Do it once a day for the next two weeks.
For those of us inspired to a step 2, it will be citizen pressure to initiate legal action. In Prof. Boyle’s book, he outlines a case that funding bioweapons research entails “reckless disregard for the risk to human life”, which is legally equivalent to murder. There are thousands of US Attorneys and local DA’s, any one of whom could convene a grand jury, collect evidence and hold hearings in preparation to indict the people who are funding and conducting bioweapons research. These people are at DoD, NIH, Fort Detrick, and University of North Carolina. Dr Boyle names names, so I don’t have to.
“This can be done. You have the power to do it, but you will have to get organized. Emails are not enough. Politicians pay more attention to personal appearances by the people who elected them. Get them to convene those grand juries and indict them for murder and for conspiracy to commit murder.”
We can do this
What did we do in 1985 that led to a reversal of the nuclear arms race? We just talked it up, raised a ruckus until even Ronald Reagan found it expedient to embrace the issue. The mainstream media were in our court in the 1980s, and we can’t count on that now. But we have social media tools now that were not yet invented then.
Let’s make bioweapon research go viral.
