Sin: More Deadly Than the Coronavirus, part two (revised)   

Cache   

The lengthy delay that had prevented me from accessing the internet recently provided me with an opportunity to amass a wealth of material to provide to this site’s readership as there is hysteria has replaced rationality and disinformation and outright misinformation have replaced a considered review of facts. Government leaders from around the world, including here in the United States of America, and leaders from the Red Chinese bought-and-paid-for World Health Organization have fanned the flames of this hysteria as they are concerned about public control and social engineering, not with any genuine concern for legitimate public health and safety.

It is neither to minimize the unspeakable suffering of those who contract serious cases of the China Virus (aka Coronavirus) nor to discredit the need to be alert to the virus’s multifaceted dangers to point out the simple fact that this is all happening with the Providence of God as a chastisement for our own sins and those of the whole world. Sins must be punished, and God is using those who mock Him and His Divine Omnipotence and Omniscience to chastise us in ways that anyone who could read the signs of the times have been coming for decades.

Millions upon millions of people, even including most fully traditional Catholics who are not “una cum” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, sadly, have fallen for the medical industry’s manufactured, money-making lies of “brain death,” “vital organ donation,” the starvation and dehydration of innocent human beings and “palliative care while most non-Catholics and Modernist Catholics have also fallen for the lies of contraception and the chemical and surgical execution of innocent preborn babies. “Medical professionals” who have been playing God and who are really no different than the late Doctor Death himself, Jack Kevorkian, are thus given an uncritical and most undeserved “credibility” that is used to marginalize and silence those who attempt to point out their lies and their diabolical agenda of population elimination by means of planned pandemics launched by biological warfare.

Indeed, it is no exaggeration to state that what we are witnessing at present as nameless, faceless bureaucrats and supposed “healthcare” officials tells us about the China Virus is a totalitarian takeover of one country after another as citizens sheepishly fall for the propaganda and knuckle under to what appears to be a threat to their bodily survival, which is in jeopardy at this time solely because this virus was manufactured in “Biosafety Lab 4” (BSL-4) to kill people. It just happened to leak out by accident from BSL-4 before it was ready to be launched. This whole business is a chastisement of epic proportions. To quote the late President Ronald Wilson Reagan, who was so frequently a very useful idiot of the global deathcare industry, “We ain’t see nothin’ yet.” In other words, this chastisement, which I believe God is visiting upon us because of our own sins, worldliness, indifference, lukewarmness, cowardice and refusal to accept objective truths in both the natural and supernatural orders of things, is only beginning. That is, life as we have known it up until now will never return to “normal.” This is the “new normal,” and I do not even have time to discuss, at least not until well after Easter, all two trillion plus dollars in “funny money” that will increase the national debt tremendously and enslave future generations for as long as God in His infinite mercy permits the United States of America to exist.

This is a crisis that has been manufactured for purposes of giving elected governmental officials and unelected,  unaccountable bureaucratic apparatchiks control over our the entirety of our lives, including whether we can even pray before the Most Blessed Sacrament, no less have access to true offerings of Holy Mass in those relatively few places where they can be found around the globe today during this time of  apostasy and betrayal. People are so afraid of physical suffering and death that they are surrendering voluntarily what the Roman emperors and their minions and the Protestant, French and Communist revolutionaries have had to take by force, up to and including the shedding of blood: the true freedom that belongs to all men to worship the true God at the ineffable Sacrifice of the Cross that is Holy Mass.

How can I support such statements?

As a trained academic researcher, I try to be very careful about what I state, and the delay experienced in writing this commentary has permitted me the opportunity to provide you with a wealth of documentation to support the simple fact that a biological warfare of epic proportions has begun that is being used by social engineers and merchants of death to accustom us even more than in the past to rationing healthcare, such as it is any longer. This biological warfare is also be used  to make us docilely subservient to our civil minders, who are not only uninterested in pursuing the common temporal good in light of man’s Last End—the possession of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for  all eternity—but are literally hellbent in the pursuit of diabolical schemes that make us all their slaves, slaves who will be compelled one day to be “microchipped” for “our own good” just as we are supposed to believe their lies at present are for “our own good.” We must be aware of these lies as we seek to keep always under the protection of Our Lady, especially by praying her Most Holy Rosary and by wearing her Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel (and fulfilling the obligations attached thereto) and her Miraculous Medal of Grace.

This will be a detailed commentary.

However, I beg the readers’ indulgence as we are in a fight now for our spiritual and temporal lives that very few who have nostalgia for the supposed Catholic “golden era” of the 1950s (a decade that was actually quite a revolutionary precursor to the 1960s) could have imagined possible. This is not the stuff of science fiction, a genre that I have always despised. This is the stuff  of what happens in the latter times when God must punish men for their wanton sins against everything contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith and have come to reject that there are any objective truths that exist in the very nature of things and thus do not depend upon human acceptance for their binding force or validity to which they must give their unyielding assent.

The party is over.

Lent has just begun.

No, not our current liturgical season of penance.

The Lent to which I refer is a preparation, whether remote or proximate, for the coming of the Antichrist, to whom all but a few of the elect will submit as the “answer” to the chaos caused by sin and the manufactured crises men steeped in it use as the pretext to impose a hard totalitarianism that is premised upon silencing dissenters and killing off those who are not physically strong enough to fight off their enhanced biological weapons.

The China Virus: Product of American Governmental and Corporate Surrender to the Chicoms

President Donald John Trump, who is showing himself yet again to be a useful too of the Big Pharmaceutical industry by the way he is trusting the so-called “medical experts” and “drug companies” to direct us down the path to a mandatory coronavirus vaccine once it becomes available, is entirely correct to keep using the term “China Virus” to refer to the coronavirus, noting that the anti-life World Health Organization issued  a new definition for “novel coronavirus” in 2013 (see Anti-Malarial Drugs Hold Promise for Novel Coronavirus, Februay 2013). This is not a disparagement of the Chinese people who have been enslaved to the brutal Chicoms for the past seventy-one years, some of whom, at the very least, are now rebelling, believe it or not, against their Chicom prison guards (see Hubei residents riot after quarantine lifted; police beaten with their own shields), but a frank, candid recognition of the truth that this current outbreak began in Wuhan.

What the president does not understand, however, is that the laboratory when the virus originated is part of a global biological warfare effort that the government of the United States of America he heads has been in the forefront of directing and developing long before he became president. This biological warfare effort is truly part of the deep state, the swamp, if you will, and is being directed by over 13,000 scientists on the payroll of the government of the United States of America. In other words, we, the taxpayers, have been subsidizing the development of biological weapons in conjunction with Russia, Red China and the Zionist State of Israel that are being used against everyone in the world.

Who says so?

Dr. Francis Boyle's Interview with Geopolitics & Empire as Transcribed by and Published in Christian Order

Well, consider the conclusions reached by Dr. Francis Boyle, who gave an interview in February to website called Geopolitics & Empire that was transcribed and reprinted with permission by Mr. Rod Pead, the editor of Christian Order magazine, which is based in the United Kingdom. Mr. Pead, whose journal published several of my articles in the early part of the last decade, was kind enough to make this transcription available to me and to give me permission to use it in this commentary. The text is rather lengthy.

However, I ask those who read this article to take the time to consider Dr. Boyle’s comments very carefully as they are crucial to understand the proximate cause of the current crisis that is being exploited by the statists around the world in ways that are meant to alter the course of human lives and the conduct of daily business in the same way that the events of September 11, 2001, did as the surveillance state got—or perhaps created—the excuse it had long sought to treat every person as a potential criminal terrorist or subversive.

I hereby express my public gratitude to Mr. Pead for his kindness in permitting me to reprint the transcription below as readers will note that his own comments at the end of the transcription reflect a common view of the organized efforts of the criminals in the civil state to send most people into fits of hysteria over their physical health while clamping down on legitimate civil liberties to “protect us” from a biological warfare they have helped to create.

Here is a key to the names listed below:

“CO” refers to Christian Order and, more specifically, to Mr. Rod Pead.

“Hvroje (don’t ask me how to pronounce that name!) Mori” is the person who conducted the interview with Dr. Francis Boyle for Geopoltics & Empire.

Dr. Francis Boyle is a professor of international law at the University of Illinois-Urban.

Here is the transcription of the interview, preceded by Mr. Pead’s own comments:

A recent interview with Dr. Francis Boyle, conducted by Geopolitics & Empire, has been exploding across the ‘net over the past few days as the truth is emerging on the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. It was an engineered biological weapon2 that escaped a BSL-4 [Biosafety Level 4] lab in China, and now it’s replicating on an exponential scale, threatening the entire human race.

Francis Boyle warned the world about bio-weapons research starting in the 1980s. After speaking out about the U.S. bioweapons research efforts which were restarted after the staged events of 9/11 — run by the deep state, of course — Francis Boyle was blackballed from the entire media based on orders from the CIA.

Now, Boyle is one of the few courageous voices speaking the truth about the bioweapons origins of the coronavirus. In this bombshell interview (full transcript below), Boyle talks about:

• The bioweapons origins of the coronavirus.

• How the U.S. deep state deployed anthrax on U.S. soil to whip up publicity about biological weapons and increase funding for bioweapons labs.

 • Why the WHO and CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] are both criminal organisations which are complicit in the covert development of biological weapons. • The “death science” industry and why the U.S. government has spent over $100 billion developing selfreplicating weapons that are deliberately designed to exterminate human life. • Details about the Pirbright Institute and its ties to bioweapons, depopulation, vaccines and coronavirus patents. (It’s partially funded by Bill & Melinda Gates.)

• Why all BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs in the world should be banned and shut down.

I’ve added bolding emphasis on the really important parts of this eye-opening interview, so if you skim the transcript, at least read the bolded sentences.

[CO Editor's note: This transcript is our slightly more precise rendering of the original video interview, with Dr Boyle's emphases and bracketed clarifications also added. Two further points: 1. To evade the 'discriminatory' Wuhan connection the WHO hastily designated this virus COVID-19 (just as it changed the more precise GRIDS — Gay Related Immune Deficiency — to the spurious AIDS); 2. Both COVID-19 and SARS are considered coronaviruses.]

HRVOJE MORI: Geopolitics & Empire is joined by Dr. Francis Boyle, who is international law professor at the University of Illinois. We’ll be discussing the Wuhan coronavirus and biological warfare. He’s served as counsel to numerous governments such as Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Palestinian authority. He’s represented numerous national and international bodies in the areas of human rights, war crimes and genocide, nuclear policy, and biowarfare. He’s written numerous books, one of my favourites being Destroying Libya and World Order, which I assigned as mandatory reading material for my own students when I taught at the Monterrey Institute of Technology. But most important for this interview, he’s written a book called Biowarfare and Terrorism, and drafted the US domestic implementing legislation for the biological weapons convention, known as the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989 that was approved unanimously by both houses of the US Congress and signed into law by President Bush. Thanks for joining us, Dr. Boyle.

Thanks for joining us, Dr. Boyle.

DR. FRANCIS BOYLE: Thank you so much for having me on and thanks for that kind introduction.

HM: Now let’s get to what’s been on the news recently. This coronavirus in Wuhan. There have been some reports recently, there’s a really interesting website called Great Game India that has been reporting on this. They’ve been talking about China, which they say has been complying with biological weapons convention in recent years. But then there are some people in the US and experts that have been saying that in reality, China isn’t complying with the weapons convention. And I think neither, perhaps the US as well. I’m wondering if China is developing its own Biosafety Level 4 [BSL-4] lab in Wuhan and elsewhere, as you know, as a type of deterrence. Is it a type of a biological arms race that we have going on?

You told me in an email that you suspect China was developing the coronavirus as a dual use of biowarfare weapons agent. Also, what do you make of reports that Chinese scientists have been stealing research and viruses, including the coronavirus, from a Canadian bio lab this past December?3 And as well, Chinese nationals have been charged with smuggling vials of biological research to China from the US — with the aid of Charles Lieber who was the chair of Harvard’s chemistry department.4 And he also happens to be, in 2011, a strategic scientist at Wuhan University. So, can you tell us what’s going on with this recent outbreak in Wuhan?

FB: Well, that’s a lot of questions. I guess we can take them one at a time. But if you just do a very simple Google search on “Does China have a BSL-4 laboratory?”, Wuhan comes up right away. It’s at the top of the list. At the moment this type of thing happened I began to do that. So a BSL-4 is the most serious type. And basically, BSL-4 labs, we have many of them here in the United States, are used to develop offensive biological warfare weapons with DNA genetic engineering.

So it does seem to me that the Wuhan BSL-4 is the source of the coronavirus. my guess is that they were researching SARS, and they weaponised it further by giving it gain of function properties, which means it could be more lethal. And indeed, the latest report now is [that] it’s 15% fatality rate, which is more than SARS at 83% infection rate. So, typical gain of function. It travels in the air, so it could reach out maybe six feet or more from someone emitting a sneeze or a cough. Likewise, this is a specially designated WHO research lab. So the WHO is in on it and they knew full well what was going on there.

Yes, it’s also been reported that Chinese scientists stole coronavirus materials from the Canadian lab at Winnipeg. Winnipeg is Canada’s foremost centre for research, developing, testing, biological warfare weapons. It’s along the lines of Fort Detrick here in the United States of America. I have three degrees from Harvard. It would not surprise me if something was being stolen out of Harvard to turn over to China. I read that report. I don’t know what was in those vials one way or the other.

But the bottom line is — and I drafted the US domestic implementing legislation for the Biological Weapons Convention that was approved unanimously by both Houses of the United States Congress, signed into law by President Bush Sr. — that it appears the coronavirus that we’re dealing with here is an offensive biological warfare weapon that leaked out of that Wuhan BSL-4. I’m not saying it was done deliberately. But there have been previous reports of problems with that lab and things leaking out of it. And I’m afraid, that is what we are dealing with today.

HM: We’ll be talking about the Wuhan and the coronavirus and China, but can you give us kind of like a bigger context. I know you’ve previously in interviews said that since 9/11, you think that the US has spent $100 billion on biological warfare research. We know the Soviet Union, if I’m not mistaken, developed anthrax as a bioweapon. And you’ve also mentioned that UK, France, Israel and China are all involved in biological warfare weapons research. And something interesting, I believe one or two years ago a Bulgarian journalist and the Russian government shared their concern of the discovery of a US bioweapons lab in the country of Georgia. You’ve commented how in Africa, [the]US has set up bioweapons labs to work on Ebola, which I think is illegal under international law. But they were allowed somehow to put those in Africa. Can you give us like a bigger picture? What’s going on with these different countries and what’s the purpose of this research?

FB: All these BSL-4 labs — by United States, Europe, Russia, China, Israel — are all there to research, develop, test biological warfare agents. There’s really no legitimate scientific reason to have BSL-4 labs. That figure I gave, $100 billion, that was about 2015 I believe. I had crunched the numbers and came up with that figure [for] the United States since 9/11. To give you an idea: that’s as much in constant dollars as the US spent to develop the Manhattan Project and the atom bomb. So it’s clearly all weapons related. We have well over 13,000 alleged life science scientists involved in research development testing biological weapons here in the United States. Actually this goes back, it even precedes 9/11, 2001. I have another book, The Future of International Law and American Foreign Policy, tracing that all the way back to the Reagan administration under the influence of the neocons. And they got very heavily involved in research development testing of biological weapons with DNA genetic engineering. It was because of that I issued my plea in 1985 in a Congressional briefing sponsored by the Council for Responsible Genetics — I’m a lawyer for them; they’re headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts. All the MIT [Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Harvard people are involved in that, the principal ones, and then they asked me to draft the implementing legislation.

The implementing legislation that I drafted was originally designed to stop this type of work. Death science work, I call it, by the United States government. After 9/11, 2001, it just completely accelerated. My current figure [is] that last figure, a 100 billion [dollars]. I haven’t had a chance to re-crunch the numbers because I just started classes. But you have to add in about another 5 billion per year. Basically, this is an offensive biological weapons race by the United States government, and with its assistance in Canada and Britain. And so other States of the world have responded accordingly, including Russia and China. They were going to set up a whole series of BSL-4 facilities as well. And you know Wuhan was the first. It backfired on them.

HM: So would you boil down what happened [in] Wuhan to ineptitude or incompetence on the Chinese part?

FB: Well, it’s criminality. It does appear they stole something there from Winnipeg. This activity that they engaged in clearly violates the Biological Weapons Convention. Research development of biological weapons these days is an international crime. I mean the use of it would be. That was criminal. I’m not saying they deliberately inflicted this on their own people, but it leaked out of there. And all these BSL-4 facilities leak. Everyone knows that who studies this. So, this was a catastrophe waiting to happen. Unfortunately, it happened. The Chinese government under Xi and his comrades there have been covering this up from the get-go. The first reported case was December 1, so they’ve been sitting on this until they couldn’t anymore. And everything they’re telling you is a lie. It’s propaganda. The WHO still refuses to declare a global health emergency. It said Tedros [Adhanom], Director-General of the WHO] was over there shaking hands with Xi and smiling and yucking it up. The WHO was in on it. They’ve approved many of these BSL-4 labs, they know exactly what’s going on. And that is a WHO research approved laboratory. So they know what’s going on too. You can’t really believe anything the WHO is telling you about this either, they’re up to their eyeballs in it, in my opinion.

HM: I’d probably agree with you that this outbreak in Wuhan was an accidental leak from the laboratory. But just your thoughts: it’s happening at quite an opportune time because we’re smack in the middle of a US-China new Cold War, which is currently characterised by economic warfare such as the trade war among other forms of hybrid and technological warfare. And it seems the Wuhan outbreak will likely hit the Chinese economy hard. The Chinese are flat out dismissing any idea that the US is involved. Like I said, it’s probably they made the mistakes in the Wuhan lab. But what are your thoughts. Seemingly, this would benefit the US.

FB: When the outbreak occurred, of course I considered that alternative too. When you have an outbreak you’re never quite sure who or what is behind it. It certainly isn’t bats, that’s ridiculous. They made the same argument on Ebola in West Africa. I demolished that online, you can check it out. So I kept competing theories about this. But right now, when you originally contacted me, I said I wasn’t prepared to comment because I was weighing the evidence. I’m a law professor and a lawyer, I try to do the best I can to weigh the evidence. But right now, that Wuhan BSL-4 in my opinion is the most likely source. Apply Occam’s razor, the simplest explanation. I’m not ruling out some type of sabotage. But right now, I believe that is the source here. HM: You mentioned WHO. I’d like to just get your thoughts on the WHO and the Big Pharma [pharmaceutical companies]. There’s also some analysts who are downplaying this news media hype of the coronavirus. You’ve just said that it seems to be lethal, but if we go back a decade to the 2009 swine flu, which I believe didn’t have too many casualties, but I think profited greatly the pharmaceutical companies. And if I recall, back in 2009, many countries purchased great stocks of the vaccines and they ended up not using anywhere from 50 to 80% of the vaccines that they purchased. You’ve previously stated in an interview that the World Health Organisation is a front for Big Pharma, if I’m not mistaken. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. also agrees and he says, you know, 50% of WHO funding comes from pharmaceutical companies, and that the CDC itself is also severely compromised. What are your thoughts on the WHO, the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]?

FB: You can’t trust anything the WHO says because they’re all bought and paid for by Big Pharma. And they work in cahoots with the CDC, which is the United States government, they work in cahoots with Fort Detrick, so you can’t trust any of it. However, the swine flu — and yes, I agree pharma made a lot of money — but that swine flu which I looked at it, it did seem to me to be a genetically modified biological warfare weapon. It was a chimera of three different types of genetic strains that someone put together in a cocktail. Fortunately, it was not as lethal as all of us fear. So fine. But as I said, this figure I just gave to you was Saturday from Lancet, which is a medical publication, saying it’s a 15% fatality rate and an 83% infection rate. So it’s quite serious, I think, far more serious than swine flu.

As for Big Pharma, sure they’re all trying to profit off this today as we speak. There was a big article yesterday in the Wall Street Journal, all Big Pharma trying to peddle whatever they can over there in China even if it’s worthless and won’t help. We do know you know if you read the mainstream news media they say that there isn’t a vaccine. Well, there is. It’s by the Pirbright Institute in Britain that’s tied into their biological warfare program over there. They were behind the hoof-and-mouth [aka foot-and-mouth] disease outbreak over there that wiped out their cattle herd and it leaked out of there. So it’s clear they’re working on a hoof and mouth biological warfare weapon. But the vaccine is there. I have the patent for it here — I haven’t had a chance to read the patent, it’s about 25 pages long and my classes [have] just resume[d]. So eventually, I'll get some free time and I’ll read the patent.

You can’t patent a vaccine with the United States patent office unless the science is there. So there is a vaccine. Everyone’s lying about that, no one’s pointing this out. There’s a vaccine but instead Big Pharma wants to make money and the researchers say, well, it’ll take three months and we’re racing forward, you know. Everyone’s gonna make a buck off of this, that’s for sure. But there is a vaccine, I have the patent here. It’s been patented by the United States government. So, obviously, I don’t know exactly how workable it is, but it’s a vaccine. I don’t know why it isn’t out there now? Why isn’t someone saying there is a vaccine? Perhaps political leaders have already been vaccinated for all I know. I really don’t know. But there is a vaccine. Pirbright is well known there in Britain, and it’s tied into Fort Detrick, and CDC is tied into Fort Detrick too. So they all know there’s a patented vaccine.

HM: Just to get your comment on something related to this... I think, I’m not sure, if it’s that same Institute that you just mentioned that has the patent. I read somewhere that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation maybe funds or has some connection to that Institute that has the patent.

FB: I think they do. Yeah. The Bill & Melinda Gates [Foundation], they fund this type of DNA genetically-engineered biological warfare work. That’s correct. So you can’t trust anything they’re telling you, that somehow they’re out there trying to make the world a better place. I mean, we have Bill Gates publicly admitting that the world be a better place if there were a lot less people. So, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, they are wolves in sheep’s clothing, and they are funding this type of stuff. Sure. [Now allied with the Vatican, arch population controller Gates has been touted as a potential funding partner of the Pope's sulphurous Global Education Pact, due to kick off in Rome this May, with a view to creating a "new humanism."]

HM: And just your comment: there was also the report that — I guess it was a consortium of companies which included the Gates Foundation — that just two or three months ago in October of 2019 they held a pandemic exercise simulating an outbreak. I mean, what are the chances specifically of a coronavirus. It was called Event 201. People can find this online online and they gave a list of seven recommendations for governments and international organisations to take. I also find that kind of interesting, how they had this simulation.

FB: That’s correct. It raises that question: the origins of what happened here. But right now, I’m just looking at the evidence I have, and applying Occam’s razor. And we know that Wuhan BSL-4 was researching, developing, testing, SARS as a biological warfare agent. So it could have been they gave it this DNA genetic engineering enhanced properties, gain of function, which we do here in the West, in the United States all the time. We have all sorts of research that is clearly bio-warfare research that has been approved by the National Institutes of Health. It’s a joke. They know full well they are approving all kinds of biological warfare research. And it gets funded by the United States government.

HM: And you’ve also mentioned in an email to me that what happened in the Biosafety Lab level 4 in Wuhan calls into question the safety of all of these level 3 and 4 four labs around the world.

FB: They’re completely unsafe. BSL-3 and BSL-4 labs are only designed for research, development, testing of offensive biological warfare agents. In my opinion they serve no legitimate purpose at all. They should all be shut down. Every one of them. Simply, they’re too dangerous. If you want, there’s an excellent documentary called Anthrax Wars, by Nadler and Coen, and I’m in there repeatedly, and at the end I say, with respect to these labs, 3 and 4, this is a catastrophe waiting to happen.

HM: We’ll be talking about the Wuhan and the coronavirus and China, but can you give us kind of like a bigger context. I know you’ve previously in interviews said that since 9/11, you think that the US has spent $100 billion on biological warfare research.

After 9/11, 2001, it just completely accelerated. My current figure [is] that last figure, a 100 billion [dollars]. I haven’t had a chance to re-crunch the numbers because I just started classes. But you have to add in about another 5 billion per year. Basically, this is an offensive biological weapons race by the United States government, and with its assistance in Canada and Britain. And so other States of the world have responded accordingly, including Russia and China. They were going to set up a whole series of BSL-4 facilities as well. And you know Wuhan was the first. It backfired on them.

Well, I’m afraid the catastrophe is now happened. So, there it is.

HM: I was just watching that documentary before we connected and I recommend the listeners go check that out. Do you see, in the future, any countries, if we come to a conflict between US, EU, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Iran, China, Russia, I mean you name it, do you see any of these countries actually utilising these biological weapons? I mean, it’s illegal under international law but we know like in the past that international law isn’t followed. Do you think that there’s a real danger of this escalating?

FB: For sure. That’s the only reason they develop these biological weapons, is, eventually, to be used, sure. I mean, it’s like the Manhattan project. We put all that money into developing an atom bomb, and even though it was not needed to end World War II, they still nuked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. So, yes, I think that’s correct. And also these can be used covertly. Anytime you see an unexplained, sudden outbreak of a disease like this anywhere in the world, both for human beings and/or animals, I always suspect the bio-warfare agent is at work. And I monitor the situation, like I did at Wuhan, until I can reach a conclusion. So, yes, they can be used.

As for the United States government, today they are fully prepared, armed, equipped, supplied to wage biological warfare with anthrax. These other more exotic things I don’t know. But they have the weapons, they're stockpiled. We have to understand ... if you read Seymour Myron Hersh’s book, published about 1968, he won the Pulitzer prize for My Lai, he had the whole offensive US biological warfare industry in there — back before it was illegal and criminal. Basically, after 9/11 2001, that entire industry — offensive biological warfare industry — has been reconstituted here in the United States, with all these BSL-4 BSL-3 labs, well over 13,000, alleged scientists, sort of like Dr. Mengele, working on these things. And so other countries have responded in kind, like Russia, like China. France is involved. Britain’s involved. Sure.

HM: You mentioned covert use. In the last few years there was the Russian double-agent spy, Sergei Skripal, who had been allegedly poisoned with Novichok out in Britain. And I thought it was funny [that] it just so happened where he was allegedly poisoned, he was right in Porton Down, the British bio weapons lab [near Salisbury], I guess the world’s first bio weapons lab created in 1916. I don’t know if you have thoughts on that whole incident.

FB: Yeah, well, it was right down the street from Porton Down, so apply Occam’s razor, who do you think might’ve been behind this? And, it was not a nerve agent, a nerve agent would have killed him immediately, this Novichok. It was something else, like VX or something like that. I would just say that I don’t think that [proximity to Porton Down] was a coincidence. But, you know, there you go. Obviously there’s a lot of speculation on that.

HM: Something else that’s kind of interesting. You’ve written in Biowarfare and Terrorism, your book, and there’s also Graeme MacQueen, I think your colleague, who wrote The 2001 Anthrax Deception : The Case for a Domestic Conspiracy...

FB: Right. I agree with everything he said in there. That’s correct.

HM: ... and I’m wondering, if this new war for biotechnological dominance, whatever you want to call it, if it can also be used kind of as a pretext for the centralisation of political power and the initiation of wars, like I guess it did in the 2003 Iraq war. Is this another danger that we get these events, like now this coronavirus, and then governments will call for centralisation of greater power, and taking away some of our civil liberties?

FB: Sure. If you look at the October, 2001 anthrax attacks here in the United States, that was clearly by elements of the United States government that was behind that. That was super weapons-grade anthrax, with a trillion spores per gram, and it floated in the air. Solely a very sophisticated biological weapons lab, like Fort Detrick, could produce that. And they used that anthrax attack, including on Congress, to ram through the USA Patriot act, which basically turned the United States into a police state, which is what we have now. So, you have to understand, the Pentagon, Fort Detrick, maybe Dugway Proving Ground [bio and chem weapons testing area in Utah], still has a stockpile of that super weapons-grade anthrax that we saw in October of 2001, that they can use the next time they want to do something like that, to further develop the American police state.

HM: Is there anything else you feel important to mention regarding this Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak or biological warfare, or any other thoughts you’d like to leave us with?

FB: Well, you just can’t believe anything the Chinese government, the WHO, the CDC are telling you. They’re all lying because they know what was going on there. And so, you’re going to have to figure it out as fast as you can. But in my opinion, as of this time, and I’m fully prepared to consider further evidence on this, it does seem to me that this was a DNA, genetically-engineered biological warfare agent leaking out of Wuhan, that has gain of function properties, which can make it more lethal. I think they're probably doing something with SARS to make it a lot more lethal and more infectious. And so for that reason, you have to take extreme precautions. And they’ve now finally admitted, well yeah, anyone within six feet can be infected, whereas with SARS it was about two feet. Well, that’s gain of function right there. And that should be a tip off.

So, I guess you’re gonna have to protect yourself. Laurie Garrett had a pretty good essay in Foreign Policy yesterday, and she was over there covering SARS, and she has very good advice in there, except that she took the SARS figure out two to three feet and said well, you gotta stay to two to three. I think you’ve got to stay at least six feet away, because this is gain of function. It can flow through the air and infect you. It can get you in the eyes. Any orifice, the mouth, maybe the ears. We’re not sure, at this point.

HM: I’m here on the border of China, in Kazakhstan, and I was just reading yesterday... they’re no longer allowing Chinese citizens into Kazakhstan without a medical, like a paper medical check, to get their visas to enter Kazakhstan.

FB: Those medical checks are worthless. This is just public relations by all the governments involved. Because there is a fourteen day incubation period where people can still be infected. So someone could walk right through a medical inspection and pass it, get into your country, and then they come down with the coronavirus. So that’s all public relations in my opinion by governments, and they know it. They’re just sending people out there, with temperatures and things like that. It’s not like SARS. This is more dangerous than SARS. As I said, I think that Wuhan lab, we know they had SARS in there that they were dealing with, and I think they enhanced it, and, I’m afraid, that’s what we’re dealing with. But you know I’m keeping an open mind as to what other sources it might have. And I wasn’t prepared to say anything until [I found] that Wuhan lab is right there and it’s dealing with coronavirus. So, again, apply Occam’s razor. It seems to me that’s the simplest explanation here.

HM: One of my final questions would be, in the months ahead, apart of what you say, staying six feet away from people, I’ve read taking high doses of vitamin C and other things like this can help you. But, if they come out as the situation develops, if it gets worse, and they come out with a coronavirus vaccine, should people take it or not? What are your thoughts?

FB: Well, what I would say is this. Right now, if you look at the article in the Wall Street Journal, Big Pharma is trying to sell all sorts of — they’re taking all their drugs off the shelf, and say, well, let’s see if it works. Which is preposterous. Okay. The scientists are saying, well, we can get you a vaccine, maybe two to three months, but they’re not testing. So, what we do know, however, is that Pirbright vaccine has been patented. So all I can assume is that that might work. But I don’t think I’d be taking any of these other vaccines. No, you have no idea what’s in there. You’ll be the guinea pig, for Big Pharma. And, you know, everyone figures they’re gonna make a lot of money here. So I’ll keep my eye open on this, and how it develops, but I wouldn’t trust anything they’re trying to sell right now. They’re just pulling these things off the shelf.

If they do come up with something in two to three months, even that’s not going to be tested, in accordance with normal scientific protocols. So it’s going to be a crap shoot. If it’s going to help you, indeed it might not help you because they’ll be using for these vaccines, these DNA genetic-engineered vaccines, they’ll be using live coronavirus, probably, and sticking it in there and giving you, some live coronavirus, on the theory you’ll develop an immunity. That’s the way a lot of these vaccines work out. That’s what happened with the Ebola vaccine that created the Ebola pandemic there in West Africa. They were testing out a vaccine on poor black Africans, as usual, and this vaccine had live Ebola in it, so it gave them live Ebola. So again, I’d be very careful, even if they do come up with these vaccines two to three months from now. Very careful. Why would you want to inject the live coronavirus in you?

HM: All right. I don’t believe you have a strong online presence. How can people best follow your work? I suppose to search for interviews as well as get your books.

FB: Well, basically I’m blackballed and blacklisted off all the mainstream news media here, on purpose. As far as I can figure out, the US government gave an order that I should not be interviewed by anyone, so I’m not. I guess you could just put my name in there under Google, a Google alert, and some interviews might come up.

But what happened was, right after the anthrax attacks of 9/11, 2001, I was giving a lecture out at Harvard, my Alma Mater. I was running a panel on biological warfare for the Council for Responsible Genetics, I'm their lawyer. It was at Harvard Divinity School, and as I was going in there was a Fox camera crew there from Boston, and I said it looks to me like this has come out of the US government's lab, and we know they do research and testing on anthrax. Then I said the same thing there at Harvard. Then I gave an interview to a radio station in Washington DC. Then I gave an interview on that to the BBC. So the whole world saw it. And at that point I was completely cut off. And I’ve been cut off ever since.

So, you're probably not going to hear too many interviews from me here. As for my book, Biowarfare and Terrorism, you can just get it at amazon.com. That picks up the story pretty much from 9/11, 2001, until it went to press. And then there are interviews I’ve given to an investigative reporter, Sherwood Ross. And a big one I just sent you, and you might want to put that on your web page. That was pretty comprehensive.

HM: I read that as well. I’ll include the link in the description of this interview, so people can go check that out. You’re not the only academic I know, I've heard of others that similar things have happened [to]. And that’s just, I guess, the price you, we, pay for telling the truth. Again, for listeners, if people want to have a broader context and deeper understanding of what’s happening today, especially with biological warfare, as well as US foreign policy and international affairs, I urge you to get Dr. Francis Boyle’s books and listen to his interviews, as well as his colleague's book, Graeme MacQueen, The 2001 Anthrax Deception, The Case For Domestic Conspiracy. Thank you for being with us, Dr. Boyle.

FB: Well, thank you. And again, please understand these are my current opinions. I could change my opinion here, based on more evidence. So I’m just looking at the evidence out there as I see it. And you have to understand, there is so much disinformation, lies and propaganda, that it’s kind of very difficult to distinguish truth from fact. I’m doing the best job I can here.

Eleanor Limprecht: Author Talk - Long Bay   

Cache   
Long Bay by Eleanor Limprecht

'A historical novel untainted by sentimentality, with a story not only fascinating in the context of its time, but made relevant to our modern world’

To coincide with the Sydney Writers' Festival, UTS Library is hosting an author talk on Eleanor Limprecht's second novel Long Bay

12 - 1pm
Wednesday 18 May
Level 2 - Events Space
Facebook event 

Set in Sydney in the first decade of the 1900s, Long Bay is based on the true case of a young female abortionist who was convicted of manslaughter and served out her sentence in the newly opened Long Bay Women’s Reformatory – the first of its kind in Australia. The woman, Rebecca Sinclair, was pregnant when she went to prison. Long Bay is a compelling fictional account of how Rebecca became involved in the burgeoning illegal abortion racket in Edwardian-era Sydney and how she was drawn into Donald Sinclair’s underworld. In unadorned prose, it examines the limiting effects of poverty, the mistakes we make for love, and the bond between mother and child.

Eleanor LimprechtAbout Eleanor: Eleanor Limprecht was born in Washington DC in 1977 and grew up in the United States, Germany and Pakistan. She now lives in Sydney, and recently completed a Doctorate of Creative Arts at UTS.

Eleanor's journalism and book reviews have appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Australian and The Sun-Herald.

Her first novel, What Was Left, was published by Sleepers in 2013 to much critical acclaim, and shortlisted for the ALS Gold Medal 2014.

If you gut a house and make it modern is it still "historic"?   

Cache   
Today's Washington Post Magazine features a story, "A Marriage of Styles," on the "renovation" of a historic rowhouse.

Looking at the various interior photos, much of the architectural detail dating to the original construction was ripped out other than some doors and windows.

When I first became interested in preservation, I was mostly interested in facades.

Rowhouses on Wylie Street NE, Washington DCThe rowhouse I lived in had been pretty much stripped of original detail long before, and given that I was not trained in planning or preservation at the time, I didn't think much about it.

Small rowhouses on Wylie Street NE, Washington, DC.  Photo by Elise Bernard/Frozen Tropics.

Many years later, after I became more knowledgeable, and when we moved into a simple (not with great Craftsman like details) bungalow in an undesignated neighborhood, but where we were only the third owners of the property, I became much more interested in interior preservation, because much of the original detail was intact -- seafoam green double sideboard kitchen sink, a similarly colored bathtub, a 1930s Magic Chef oven, original wood floors, most of the windows intact, wood trim (although in the "public rooms" most of the trim had long since been painted, but not in the "private rooms" -- the bedrooms and back sitting porch), light fixtures, a couple of skeleton keys in doorlocks, etc.

Our oven, Magic Chef Oven, 1930s, and seafoam green double sideboard sink, Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company, Louisville, P671022X78, 1920sBefore we moved in, we got the Bungalow Bathrooms and Bungalow Kitchens books by Jane Powell because we knew we were going to have to do some renovation, and we wanted what we did to be congruent with the house's architectural style.

And that's what we did, mixing new elements along with the old, including what I call the $2000 sink, because we bought a c. 1950 Crane sink, art deco but it worked, but it had major issues in terms of the faucet fixtures, and required a lot of repair and rebuilding...

The Ikea addition to the kitchen of our houseI do think that historic preservation is or should be about more than preserving the shell of a building.

Ikea cabinets and shelving.

Yes, a quality renovation was done of the house featured in the Post, but by removing virtually all original details, I would argue that a lot of the house character has been lost.

Even though likely it still is a great place to live, looks more than functional, etc.

I've noticed that most of the Post real estate features on house renovations show something similar to this piece--a gut renovation of a historic house, elimination of interior walls to create an "open plan", etc. and a diminishment of the house's historic character.

I remember for awhile, in the special quarterly real estate section of the Washington Business Journal that Rebecca Miller of DC Preservation League had a column. (Similarly, many years ago, for awhile the Wall Street Journal ran a similar historic preservation feature in their weekend real estate section.)

Our 1930s Magic Chef stove/kitchen with a matching Venta-Hood in white with black trimModern Vent A Hood installed to match a 1930s Magic Chef oven.

Given the importance of historic architecture, historic urban design, and historicity to the city's competitive advantage, it would be worth trying to get such a column in the weekend Washington Post real estate section. House tours help too, but maybe they are more about "preaching to the converted." (Although based on past experience, plenty of houses on the tours have been modernized, often in oft putting ways.)

Although a number of years ago, I had a conversation with Roger Lewis, author of the twice monthly (?) column "Shaping the City" in the Post real estate section, and he said the editor of the real estate section wasn't much interested in issues of urbanism.

Certainly, editor Marc Fisher has written plenty of anti-historic preservation articles over the years that have been damaging to preservation, as have writings by Matthew Yglesias and economist Edward Glaesar.

Most recently is the "controversy" stirred up by the Greater Greater Washington blog about solar panels on the fronts of historic houses--this has even spilled over into the New York Times ("When Historic Preservation Hurts Cities") although Preservation Maryland had an excellent response ("When Historic Preservation Helps Cities"), which will be the subject of a follow on post.

The Do a Day Podcast from Bryan Falchuk

Investor, serial entrepreneur, coach and international speaker, Emi Kirschner, masterfully combines her intuitive abilities with her analytical sense to help driven entrepreneurs become the Visionary CEO of their business resulting in doubling revenue.

Emi is an expert in:

  • Implementing strategic, long term plans
  • Increasing productivity and performance while reducing stress
  • Increasing sales by maximizing process and lead capture
  • Building and developing value centered, mission driven teams

She is also the host of the Tribe of Leaders podcast, where she interviews successful entrepreneurs who share how they have developed their leadership skills through the success and challenges of growing their business

As a Young Entrepreneur Academy instructor Emi teaches 7th-12th graders how to write a business plan and pitch to investors.

When not traveling, Emi can be found wearing flip flops and drinking coffee at many of the local shops where she lives in Philadelphia.

Key Points from the Episode with Emi Kirschner:
  • Emi is a business coach working with creative entrepreneurs looking to make a difference in other people’s lives.
  • She’s found many people who are more visionary and artistic or creative, yet may lack the structure skills to create the systems needed for those ideas to turn into successful businesses. She’s one of those people.
  • In helping people, she found that many don’t look at themselves as leaders, so she’s trying to spread the idea that everyone is a leader whether we see ourselves that way or not. She seeks to bring that message out with her Tribe of Leaders podcast.
  • Emi’s backstory includes stints in many different industries that taught her so much about business and the skills needed to succeed in it.
  • As a child, she grew up with a lot of moves for various reasons, whether job opportunities for her father, trying to get access to better schools or something else.
  • That included going from high school in urban Washington DC to rural New Hampshire.
  • Throughout that process, Emi and her sister were never really given a voice or choice in it, which informed how she’s chosen to parent her sons.
  • When she did voice her desire to stay through and finish a year of high school that was nearly done, although she spoke up, there was no consideration for what she said.
  • Today, she’s able to look at this situation with forgiveness and understanding that her parents did the best they could with what they knew, and Emi can do differently today with her kids.
  • Her kids always have the ability to speak their mind and explore what would work for them. This has also set them up for how they interact with adults more broadly, which is serving them well in their lives.
  • She remembers holding her oldest son when he was just a newborn, and knowing he (and then his younger brother) were going to be the most important things in her life.
  • She’s had to transition that mentality as her kids are becoming adults.
  • She also went through a divorce as she realized she and her husband didn’t work well together anymore.
  • She found herself sick regularly, and hasn’t since leaving her marriage.
  • As she’s up-leveled and changed, it raised the expectations for her kids to see what ‘doing better’ looks like.
  • She stopped tolerating things that weren’t serving her, and her kids and clients saw that.
  • She’s found that, when we stop worrying about blockers is when things tend to fall into place.
  • We are all experiencing this feeling of not being enough, not having enough value.
  • Her biggest wake up call came from her divorce, when she had been sick all the time with sinus infections and wishing to just feel good.
  • The inquiry into how to feel good led to more of a sense of needing to play.
  • The joy from a bit of silliness can create great growth and freedom to move forward.
  • It also opens you up to self-love, and seeing your abilities and strengths.
  • Whereas she used to see herself as making the best decisions for her kids, it changed to being a guide for her kids to make their own decisions.
  • She actually asks her kids to rate her on a scale of 1-10, and tell her what could be better.
  • She believes, as I do, that how we show up in one area of our lives impacts how we show up in others. We aren’t segregated pockets of who we are.
  • Emi loves list making, and prefers it to doing the 5 or 10 year plans, which end up being too vague, which makes it hard to make the right decisions of how to move forward.
  • Emi has created a sense of flow for her life through facing all the things she’s had to as a single mom of two very different kids.
  • Emi would ask her catering clients when she ran that business about the experience they wanted to have rather than just what they wanted to serve.
  • When her son Brian was a baby, he had a lot of digestive issues that doctors couldn’t help with, which set Emi on a journey to understand how food ties to our health, and build a passion for healthy cooking and eating.
  • She does believe in enjoying things you’re trying to enjoy without beating ourselves up.
  • We shouldn’t create stress around something that we’re trying to be happy about.
  • We will get lots of things wrong in life. It’s not for us to beat ourselves up, but rather to learn and more on.
  • Grow and be capable once you know.
  • No matter how much we have our stuff together, there’s always room to grow and learn if we live in a non-judgmental, open way.
  • Her approach with her kids is to allow, be heard and acknowledge them.

Natural language breakthrough marks dawn of a golden era for quantum computing   

Cache   

Globally-renowned Cambridge Quantum Computing has wowed the technology world with an astonishing breakthrough in the field.

The UK company reveals that it has used the ‘natively quantum’ structure of natural language to open up an entirely new realm of possible applications by translating grammatical sentences into quantum circuits, and then implementing the resulting programs on a quantum computer and actually performing question-answering. 

This is the first time that natural language processing has been executed on a quantum computer, the Bridge Street business discloses. And there is a bonus in the innovation.

By achieving the results without relying on quantum RAM, CQC scientists have created a path to truly applicable quantum advantage within the Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) era.

By using CQC’s class-leading and platform-agnostic retargetable compiler, tiket, these programs were successfully executed on an IBM quantum computer, achieving ‘meaning-aware’ and ‘grammatically informed’ natural language processing – a dream of computer scientists since the earliest days of the computer age. 

CQC says it looks forward to providing further details in the near future –including ways to scale the programs so that meaningfully large numbers of sentences can be used on NISQ machines as they themselves scale in quantum volume and using other types of quantum computers.

Cambridge Quantum Computing is a world-leading quantum computing software company with 62 scientists across offices in Cambridge, London, San Francisco, Washington DC and Tokyo. 

It builds tools for the commercialisation of quantum technologies that will have a profound global impact.

The company combines expertise in quantum software, specifically the tiket quantum development platform, enterprise applications in the area of quantum chemistry, quantum machine learning, quantum natural language processing and quantum augmented cybersecurity (IronBridge).

Business Weekly reported on Valentine’s Day that global giant IBM, headquartered in New York and with an $80 billion turnover, had fallen in love with the company which is headed up by CEO Ilyas Khan.

IBM made an unspecified strategic investment in the business, following years of collaboration between CQC and IBM’s quantum computing team.


          

The sixth stage is lunacy.

Happy Rex Manning Day, everyone! I was supposed to be in Washington DC right now. I had the hotel and airfare booked. I was going to work from DC for the week, and hang out in various neighborhoods to see what the food options were like, and maybe go to a concert midweek. I was …
