Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it — Lloyd Chambers. That applies to climate science, COVID-19, and Einstein’s theory of relativity. Repudiating rational debate on science is as anti-science as it gets.
The technical details of the papers by Chinese virologist Dr. Li-Meng Yan claiming that the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) CREATED the COVID-19 virus are way beyond me, so I’ll leave it to the experts—except that the WHO and CDC have been shown to be utterly corrupt, so I don’t know who can really weigh in on the matter.
It seems that only Tucker Carlson has the “gall” to actually interview a credible person on the CCP virus. With China disappearing anyone who speaks out and controlling all information in media in China (and often abroad), such voices are critical.
UPDATE October 8 2020: feel free to discount ZeroHedge, but what I want to see/hear are scientific confirmation or refutation of the specific claims in the paper SARS-CoV-2 Is an Unrestricted Bioweapon: a Truth Revealed through Uncovering a Large-Scale, Organized Scientific Fraud (direct download here). See also the first paper Unusual Features of the SARS-CoV2 Genome Suggesting Sophisticated Laboratory Modification Rather than Natural Evolution and Delineation of Its Probable Synethetic Route (direct download here).
The Chinese government intentionally manufactured and released the COVID-19 virus that led to mass shutdowns and deaths across the world, a top virologist and whistleblower told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday.
Carlson specifically asked Dr. Li-Meng Yan whether she believed the Chinese Communist Party released the virus "on purpose." "Yes, of course, it's intentionally," she responded on "Tucker Carlson Tonight."
Yan said more evidence would be released but pointed to her own high-ranking position at a World Health Organization reference lab as a reason to trust her allegation. "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," she said.
"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."
Yan's comments conflicted with the opinion of Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and White House coronavirus adviser, who previously cast doubt on the idea the virus was artificially created. In May, he told National Geographic: "If you look at the evolution of the virus in bats, and what's out there now is very, very strongly leaning toward this [virus] could not have been artificially or deliberately manipulated — the way the mutations have naturally evolved."
I don’t see how Dr. Fauci is credible, given his spineless track record, and the flat-out lies he promulgated about the spread of COVID-10, and about masks early on—he strikes me as someone who never heard of a bullshit meter.
Presumably our national security apparatus can figure out whether the claims made by Dr. Li-Meng Yan are true, but since the answer is fraught with geopolitical considerations, will the truth ever be known to the public?
And I wonder if Dr. Yan will die unexpectedly in an “accident”. Dr Yan is inredibly brave to stand up and speak out (China surely wants to disappear her as has been done with everyeone else), even if her claims turn out to be bad science.
