New Strains Appear  by J. Parnell McCarter


Date 6/15/2020  reports that apparently new strains of the Covid-19 virus are appearing in China, even as the original Covid-19 originated in China, and then spread around the world:


China’s New Outbreak Shows Signs the Virus Could Be Changing


Of course, this raises the question, if these are new strains, then whence their origin?  Are they simply accidental mutations or are they the result of human engineering?


Consider the August 2019 article at which warned of what was in development in China:


"As detailed in the annual Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community report to the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, China in particular has increased its economic and resource investments, and deepened political interest in research and innovation to assert growing leverage and power, if not hegemony, in international scientific, biomedical and technological markets. One of these emerging domains is the growing viability of utilizing synthetic biology to develop novel biological weapons. In 2018, Chinese scientist Dr. He Jiankui used CRISPR/Cas9 germline editing to create human twins with a genetically-induced resistance to HIV. This generated significant ethical and legal controversy, and ultimately led to the World Health Organization determination and assertion that genetic modifications of human germlines are “irresponsible.” However, China has demonstrated that by working at the frontiers of current sciences (i.e. – in some cases, by asserting differing cultural values and ethical norms that guide and govern biomedical research and its uses) they can create, engineer, and foster biological advancements that are as yet unattainable by — and therefore ahead of — other countries. Avant Garde — and often controversial — synthetic biology synergizes China’s research and of weaponizable biologicals and toxins. Gene editing and other synthetic biology technologies (e.g., artificial proteins) can be employed to increase the potency of a toxin, thereby requiring less to incur a desired effect. This science could be used to genetically modify a low-toxicity bioagent to become more potent and lethal, or could allow the creation of new, unique —and heretofore unknown —agent. Indeed, as James Madsen, lead clinical consultant and clinical laboratory director at the chemical casualty care division at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense, stated in the article: China is the world leader in toxin-based biothreats, and such efforts would only establish that position ever more solidly." 


Consider also the July 2019 warnings in the article at


"It’s no longer rare for nations to use these types of lethal agents, he said. “What we've seen over the past few years is the norms around chemical and biological weapon use have been eroded almost completely,” Kilianski said. “The norms surrounding these and the treaties surrounding these have really taken a hit.”  Retired Army Brig. Gen. William King, who now works as an executive advisor with Booz Allen Hamilton focusing on countering weapons of mass destruction, said the Defense Department has to prepare now.  It’s only a matter of when — not if — a chemical or biological attack will occur, he said. “It's already happened and [is] happening, and the inhibition to use some of these threats is no longer there.”


As documented in the series beginning at as well as at , there is circumstantial evidence China and other parties are employing biological warfare to destabilize the world and bring the US empire down, so as to achieve various geo-political goals.  New strains appear in the world in more way than one.
