covid lab leak theory


  • In its September 2019 report, the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board — a joint arm of the World Health Organization and the World Bank — warned that technological advances “allow for disease-creating micro-organisms to be engineered or recreated in laboratories,” and that the release of such organisms could cause greater devastation than a natural outbreak
  • On the Board are Sir Jeremy Farrar (director of the Wellcome Trust) and Dr. Anthony Fauci (director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIAID), both of whom have defended the zoonotic origin theory for SARS-CoV-2 and helped suppress the lab-leak theory
  • February 1, 2020, Farrar set up a confidential conference call with a dozen individuals, including Fauci. Two days later, WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made a public call for censorship of “misinformation”
  • Five days after that call, Peter Daszak circulated the first draft of a scientific consensus statement that eventually got published in The Lancet, and thereafter was used by mainstream media and fact checkers everywhere to “debunk” any and all evidence of a lab leak
  • Six weeks after Farrar’s group call, several of the participants published a commentary in Nature Medicine, in which they stated they “do not believe that any type of laboratory-based scenario is plausible”

In the July 22, 2021, article,1 “Did Scientists Stifle the Lab-Leak Theory,” foreign reporter and columnist for Unherd, Ian Birrell, analyzes the circumstances that led to a near-complete blackout of questions about SARS-CoV-2’s origin.

In September 2019, the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board issued a warning that a new infectious disease was poised to spread around the world, and that nations were ill prepared for such an event.

The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board is a joint arm of the World Health Organization and the World Bank — two technocratic entities that aren’t always working in the best interest of humanity as a whole.

On the 15-person Board are Sir Jeremy Farrar (director of the Wellcome Trust), Dr. Anthony Fauci (director of the NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, NIAID) and George Fu Gao, director-general of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Technocrat-Led Board Predicted Manmade Pandemic

As noted by Birrell, the board’s warning was “astonishingly prescient,” as SARS-CoV-2 emerged in December 2020. Importantly, the board did not necessarily focus its prediction on the emergence of natural zoonotic diseases but, rather, warned of technological and scientific advances that “allow for disease-creating micro-organisms to be engineered or recreated in laboratories.”

According to the board, accidental release of such manmade organisms could actually be far more devastating than a natural outbreak. “Accidental or deliberate events caused by high-impact respiratory pathogens pose global catastrophic biological risks,” the board stated in its September 2019 report, titled “A World At Risk.”2 In passing, the report also mentioned the need to control the flow of information:

“A deliberate release would complicate outbreak response; in addition to the need to decide how to counter the pathogen, security measures would come into play limiting information-sharing and fomenting social divisions.”

Same Board Members Denied Possibility of Manmade Pandemic

Despite the Board’s recognition that manmade pathogens pose a significant threat, some of its board members — Fauci and Farrar in particular — have played central roles in roundly dismissing the possibility that SARS-CoV-2 leaked from a lab. As reported by Birrell:3

“Farrar was a central figure behind two landmark documents published by influential science journals that played a key role in shutting down discussion of the lab leak hypothesis by branding it conspiracy theory.

These statements, signed and promoted by leading figures in the scientific establishment, pushed an idea that the pandemic was a natural occurrence by arguing against the plausibility of ‘any type of laboratory-based scenario.’ Critics say this ‘false narrative’ set back understanding of the disease for more than a year.”

In his book, “Spike: The Virus vs. The People — the Inside Story,” Farrar praises China for its pandemic response at the outset of the pandemic. This despite the fact that the Communist dictatorship is known to have silenced doctors who wanted to warn the public, and allowed the annual Chinese New Year’s celebration to proceed, thereby ensuring massive spread as people from all parts of China and across the world gathered.

Did Fauci and Farrar Collude to Suppress Lab-Leak Theory?

Birrell goes on to detail how Farrar and Fauci reacted to early reports suggesting the virus had telltale signs of gain-of-function. Emails4 obtained via freedom of information act (FOIA) requests reveal Fauci received a Science magazine article detailing the work of Peter Daszak (EcoHealth Alliance) and Shi Zhengli at the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV).

“The article discussed controversies over risky ‘gain of function’ experiments, including mention of a 2015 paper by Shi and a U.S. expert on modification of a Sars-like bat virus to boost infectivity to humans,” Birrell writes.5

“Emails released through freedom of information requests show Fauci instantly circulated the article to U.S. officials and contacted Farrar saying it was ‘of interest to the current discussion’ …

[Scripps virologist Kristian] Andersen, when sent the Science article at the end of January, admitted a close look at the genetic sequences of Sars-CoV-2 showed that ‘some of the features (potentially) look engineered’ and that other experts agreed the genome was ‘inconsistent with expectations from evolutionary theory’ …

The Wellcome boss then set up a conference call for the pair of them with 11 other experts from around the world, warning their discussions were ‘in total confidence’ and information ‘not to be shared’ without prior agreement.

Farrar also sent Fauci a link to an article on ZeroHedge … that tied a Wuhan researcher to the virus outbreak. The site was banned the next day from Twitter …”

While we don’t know the full details of what was discussed during that February 1, 2020, phone call, Birrell points out what we do know. For example, we know they discussed contacting the WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and that two days later, Ghebreyesus made a public call for censorship of misinformation.

Five days after that call, Daszak also circulated the first draft of a scientific consensus statement6 that eventually got published in The Lancet, and thereafter was used by mainstream media and fact checkers everywhere to “debunk” any and all evidence of a lab leak.

The dam is breaking. And with the surging floodwaters, comes a stunning realization: Almost across the board, our elite institutions got the most important question about COVID wrong. ~ James Meigs

The statement, signed by 27 experts, including Farrar, condemned “conspiracy theories suggesting that Covid-19 does not have a natural origin.” A FOIA request revealed Daszak was the mastermind behind that Lancet statement7 — which, by the way, presented no actual evidence of natural origin — and that he wanted to make sure it could not be identified as being from a single individual or organization.

Six weeks after Farrar’s group call, four of the participants on the call — including Andersen — also published a commentary in Nature Medicine, titled “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2,”8 in which they stated they “do not believe that any type of laboratory-based scenario is plausible.”

“This statement in a world-renowned journal, which has been accessed 5.5 million times, further depressed debate of alternative theories on the origins, despite being challenged by a few brave voices in the scientific community,” Birrell writes.9

Unanswered Questions

In his book, “Spike,” which was published July 22, 2021, Farrar admits he had deep concerns about the “huge coincidence” of SARS-CoV-2 emerging in a city with a biosafety level 4 (BSL4) laboratory that just so happens to specialize in collection, storage and research of bat coronaviruses. Birrell writes:

“The new coronavirus ‘might not even be that novel at all,’ he thought. ‘It might have been engineered years ago, put in a freezer, and then taken out more recently by someone who decided to work on it again. And then, maybe, there was … an accident?’

He was so concerned that he confided in Eliza Manningham-Buller, then the Wellcome Trust chair and a former head of the MI5 intelligence service, who told him to start taking precautions such as avoiding putting things in emails and using a burner phone for key conversations.

So what changed his mind so firmly he started signing letters and tweeting about alleged conspiracy theories? When I asked Farrar to share the evidence that set his mind at rest, he pointed to the Nature Medicine article. Yet his office told me later he helped ‘convene’ these five authors.

They also insist that ‘the weight of available data and scientific evidence continues to point towards zoonotic origins.’

But scientists have found no hard evidence on the pandemic origins, despite testing 80,000 samples on animals to find a natural link, while China has made increasingly ludicrous claims over the origins as well as covering up the outbreak, lying over the date of first cases and taking offline Wuhan’s key database of samples and viral sequences.”

In his book, Farrar also discusses specific concerns brought forth by Andersen in January 2020. Recall, in April 2020, Andersen published “The Proximal Origin of SARS-CoV-2” with four other co-authors. But in January, three things alarmed him about the virus:

  1. The receptor binding domain, which is like a perfect key for entering human cells
  2. The furin cleavage site, which is not found in other bat coronaviruses and would be expected “if someone had set out to adapt an animal coronavirus to humans by taking a specific suit of genetic material from elsewhere and inserting it”
  3. A scientific paper describing the use of that very technique to modify the original SARS virus. Andersen allegedly thought it “looked like a how-to manual for building the Wuhan coronavirus in a laboratory”

Evidence of Collusion

Before Farrar’s February 1, 2020, call, Andersen was “60 to 70%” convinced SARS-CoV-2 was a lab creation, according to Farrar’s account. Yet Andersen also told Farrar he did not want to be a front man for the lab leak theory. Birrell writes:10

“Anderson told [Farrar] that he suddenly realized he might be the person who proved the new virus came from a lab. ’I didn’t necessarily want to be that person,’ he said.

‘When you make big claims like that you had better be sure that you can conclude something is based on evidence and not on speculation.’ So according to Farrar, then five experts wrestled with the evidence and, the following month, they declared in Nature Medicine that Sars-CoV-2 was ‘not a laboratory construct or a purposefully manipulated virus’ …

They offered the circumstantial evidence that RaTG13, the closest known coronavirus to Sars-CoV-2, had different binding mechanisms — yet similar ones were found on pangolins, so ‘the ingredients … were out in the wild. They did not need to have escaped, or been unleashed, from a containment lab.’”

The problem with this argument is that they have no firm evidence of natural emergence. What’s more, while Andersen and co-authors claim they spent many sleepless nights carefully analyzing and evaluating the lab leak theory before finally dismissing it, in a May 2021 interview,11 co-author Robert Garry admitted the first draft of the Nature Medicine paper was finished February 1, 2020 — the day of Farrar’s conference call, which included four of the five co-authors.

Fauci’s email trove also reveals Farrar sent Fauci a rough draft of the Nature Medicine paper three days after that conference call, urging him to keep it confidential. That same day, Andersen also told another group of experts that the data “conclusively show” there was no engineering involved. “So far from having ‘many sleepless nights,’ these scientists seem to have changed their minds amazingly fast and reached fresh conclusions,” Birrell writes.

Elite Institutions Have Subverted the Truth

Another article addressing the subversion of truth by some of our most trusted scientific institutions is James Meigs’ Commentary piece, “The Lab-Leak-Theory Cover-Up.”12

“The dam is breaking,” Meigs writes. “And with the surging floodwaters, comes a stunning realization: Almost across the board, our elite institutions got the most important question about COVID wrong.

Worse, they worked furiously to discourage anyone else from getting it right. The leading scientific experts turned out to be spinning the truth. Our public-health officials put their political agenda ahead of any scientific mandate.

And the press and social-media giants eagerly played along, enforcing strict rules about which COVID topics were acceptable and which had to be banished from the national conversation.

During the Trump years, we heard a lot of hand-wringing about the public’s unwarranted ‘distrust’ of our society’s designated experts and leaders. But to be trusted, people and institutions have to be trustworthy.

The COVID-19 pandemic revealed a profound corruption at the heart of our expert class. The impact of that revelation will reverberate for years to come.”

As noted by Meigs, leading institutions not only declared the lab-leak theory incorrect, but also “dangerous and malicious,” and went to extraordinary lengths to “protect” the population from hearing anything that might infect their minds with such wrongthink.

In the end, all such efforts failed. Despite the ridicule, personal attacks and censorship, common sense and logic have managed to break through and, today, the failures of our most prestigious science institutions are laid bare.

Government Only Pays Lip Service to the Truth

The lab-leak question has also revealed corruption within other cherished institutions, such as the U.S. intelligence community. Two separate teams, one in the State Department and another under direction of the National Security Council, have been tasked with investigating the origin of SARS-CoV-2.

In Commentary, Meigs points out that both teams report facing intense internal pushback, according to Vanity Fair reporter Katherine Eban. Their own institutions urged them “not to open a ‘Pandora’s Box,’” which suggests the State Department and the NSC aren’t particularly interested in the truth. Of particular concern was the role the U.S. government may have played by funding gain-of-funding research on bat coronaviruses at the WIV.

While the ramifications of the truth might be extremely uncomfortable for some, if we allow individuals to shirk responsibility, the ramifications of that course of action could ultimately turn out to be lethal for mankind.

If U.S. institutions such as the NIAID funded gain-of-function research that resulted in a pandemic, we need to know, so we can close loopholes and implement better safeguards. I’ve argued that gain-of-function research that makes pathogens more dangerous to humans ought to be banned altogether, to prevent the creation of a truly lethal pandemic.

But even if we don’t ban it, we need to know what government agencies have been doing with our tax dollars, and decide whether they’ve been put to good use or not. In my opinion, creating pathogens capable of killing us is hardly a good use of our taxes, and should be stopped.

Origin Story Shows Importance of Independence

Most people want to trust government, academic and scientific institutions, and the media. Unfortunately, if the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that these institutions aren’t worthy of unequivocal trust.

They say they’re trustworthy, and they insist we must trust them, but their actions tell a different story. The pandemic has also shown us just how important it is for investigators, researchers and reporters to be truly independent. As noted by Meigs:13

“The story of why the line of inquiry survived is not an account of leading scientists and health organizations dutifully parsing the evidence.

Instead, it is largely the story of little-known researchers — many working outside the bounds of elite institutions — who didn’t let the political implications of their findings derail their efforts.

Much of what we know today about the Wuhan Institute’s risky research is thanks to these independent skeptics who challenged the institutional consensus. Some risked their careers to do so.”

One key group of self-organized researchers is the Decentralized Radical Autonomous Search Team Investigating COVID-19 (DRASTIC). They’ve made a number of important discoveries that have kept the lab-leak theory alive.

Massive Collusion to Suppress Inquisitiveness

“Throughout the pandemic we’ve often heard admonitions to ‘follow the science.’ Looking back we can see that few scientists — and even fewer journalists — really did,” Meigs notes. Among the few journalists who did tackle the elephant in the room were former New York Times reporters Nicholas Wade and Donald McNeil Jr.

“Notice the irony here: While two refugees from the New York Times were publishing deep, well-reported articles on an alternative outlet, the Times itself was still mostly ignoring the Wuhan-lab story,” Meigs writes.14

“One of its current pandemic specialists, Apoorva Mandavilli, was on Twitter urging everyone to ‘stop talking about the lab leak’ … When the pandemic hit last year, we were all urged to fall in line and listen to the authorities. Scientists and bureaucrats were elevated to near-divine status.

‘Let us pray, now, for science,’ Times tech columnist Farhad Manjoo wrote last February. ‘Pray for reason, rigor and expertise … Pray for the N.I.H. and the C.D.C. Pray for the W.H.O.’ Now the public is waking up to the fact that, prayers notwithstanding, those institutions largely failed us.

The WHO kowtowed to China’s deceptions. Anthony Fauci trimmed his public statements to fit the prevailing political winds. Some of the nation’s top virologists didn’t just dismiss the lab-leak possibility, they appeared to be covering up their own involvement with Wuhan gain-of-function research.

Journalists and social-media companies conspired to suppress legitimate questions about a disease that was killing thousands of Americans each day.”

Establishment Needs a Deep Clean

While we certainly need expertise, as Meigs points out, we must also be able to trust our experts, and the only way for trust to rebuild, experts must act from a strong ethical foundation, and be held responsible for dangerous failures.

“If the public concludes that COVID-19 was, in effect, an inside job, the political fallout could last a generation,” Meigs writes.15 “I don’t mean people will believe the virus was deliberately released … but that they will see the disease as a product of an elite power structure that behaves recklessly and evades responsibility.”

What makes the situation so problematic is that it’s not just one type of institution that is behaving recklessly and shirking responsibility. It’s not just the legacy media, or academia, or government, or public health, the intelligence apparatus, Big Tech, Big Pharma or the medical journal system. It’s all of them.

The Medical Journal System Has Failed Us Too

Continuing along that same line of reasoning, a July 27, 2021, Spectator article16 by Stuart Ritchie reviews the unhealthy relationship between The Lancet and China, and its role in thwarting scientific investigation into the origins of SARS-CoV-2. Ritchie points out how The Lancet’s editor-in-chief, Richard Horton, has routinely defended China’s actions:

“It’s not just the scientists and health workers of China that the Lancet has praised. In May last year, Horton appeared on the state-owned broadcaster China Central Television to praise how ‘tremendously decisively’ the Chinese Communist party had handled the pandemic. He also penned multiple editorials about China, including one entitled ‘Covid-19 and the Dangers of Sinophobia.’”

Ritchie also stresses that “some of the most famous stories of scientific fraud have originated at The Lancet during Horton’s tenure as editor,” including, most recently, fraudulent papers proclaiming to show that hydroxychloroquine is dangerous when used in COVID-19 patients, and Daszak’s “scientific statement” condemning the lab leak theory as wild conspiracy theory.

“The purpose of the Lancet, back in 1823, was to slice away the immorality and complacency of the medical establishment … [Lancet founder Thomas] Wakley would have been stunned to see that his journal now exemplifies that establishment,” Ritchie writes.17 “It embodies an unaccountable or only partially accountable elite that does often make progress, but fails abjectly to face up to its many faults.

In 2021, we might find that the best rejoinder to our establishment isn’t a new Wakley-style journal, but an entirely new way to think about science and how it’s published: a way that doesn’t hand over all our trust to editors and reviewers, but that emphasizes openness and transparency right from the start.

There are several proposals for how it could happen. The next rotten thing that needs to be cut away could be the journal system — and the Lancet itself.”

The censorship rolled out during the COVID pandemic has revealed a disconcerting truth, namely that corruption and collusion are rampant everywhere. By the looks of it, we need to do a clean sweep across the board, and that will require time, effort, and most of all, open public discussion.

Laws Have Been Broken. Who Will Hold Them Accountable?

In closing, I strongly recommend listening to Dr. David Martin’s explanation of antitrust law in the video below, and how, in the case of a criminal conspiracy, liability shielding evaporates.

In his view, having reviewed the evidence, there’s no doubt that the NIH/NIAID, the U.S. Health and Human Services Department, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, ATI, Moderna and Pfizer are guilty of criminal conspiracy (the legal definition thereof) and premeditative antitrust violations.

Without that criminal conspiracy and their premeditative acts, we would not be in the situation we’re in now, where censorship and pandemic measures and rules are putting the public health, well-being and sanity at risk. Unfortunately, while there is, theoretically, a legal way out of this pandemic, deep cracks in our justice system has also been exposed over the past year and a half.

Martin is currently struggling to find a state attorney general willing to pursue these violations so that we can bring this faux pandemic to a close. Hopefully, once enough people understand the illegality of the situation, someone will have the courage to step up to the plate.

PreviousNextPfizer’s COVID-19 Vaccine Indemnification AgreementHow Scientists Muzzled the COVID Lab Origin Data

Today, I have the most important announcement in the quarter of a century history of this newsletter. My goal and passion has always been about supporting you and helping you take control of your health. I am beyond thrilled that there are tens of millions of people who have benefited from what I have shared over the years.

I am filled with joy and gratitude every time I travel and lecture as invariably many people tell me how I’ve changed their lives by providing vital information they couldn’t find anywhere else and even better that was completely free.

These were the times when many of the views I presented were criticized, but that’s to be expected. That was one of the great freedoms we enjoyed. We could have different views and we could speak openly about these views without fear of retribution.

But we are now in a different time. A much darker time. The silence of free speech is now deafening.

Not only is blatant censorship tolerated, it is being encouraged by the very people who were to be entrusted with protecting our freedom of speech.

We are not living from the lessons we’ve learned before. Never in my life, would I believe the sitting President of the United States call out 12 Americans in a McCarthyism like attack in the United States. As you are aware, I was placed at the top of this list.

The last week has brought a tremendous amount of reflections to me, and a lot of unacceptable threats to a company full of amazing people that have helped me support you in this journey.

By now I am sure you know that there was a recent NY Times article attacking me and it was one of the most widely distributed stories in the world. The article was loaded with false statements made about me and my organization.

The report would be laughed at if it were to be submitted for peer review, the groups that created it are funded by dark money and operated by an illegal foreign agent. The press never questioned it, but ran with their orders from above.

I can deal with the CNN crews that chase me by car while I bicycle from my home. I feel sorry for the people in media that have to follow the orders they are given.

It is easy to dismiss the media pawns, but the most powerful individual on the planet has targeted me as his primary obstacle that must be removed. Every three letter agency is at his disposal, and the executive powers have grown beyond what an individual American’s rights can protect against.

A dissenter of medical mandates is now a target and obstacle to be removed. I know – that’s 25 years’ worth of blood, sweat and tears coming down.

I can hardly believe these words are coming out of my mouth. It’s a testament of just how radical things have degenerated in the recent past. However, I will continue to publish new articles, BUT going forward, each article I publish will be available for only 48 hours and will then be removed from the website.

We are at the crossroad where change is unavoidable. We all must make choices that determine our future. To many, this looks like a war … but what we need to find is peace. I am going to find peace through this sacrifice.

Just to be clear, ALL my content will be removed. This includes articles on:

  • Great Reset
  • General nutrition
  • The coronavirus
  • My interviews with experts

These will be removed to appease the individuals in power who have an arsenal of overwhelming tools at their disposal, and are actively engaged in using them. COVID-19 has activated and authorized emergency powers that have weakened our constitutional rights. Sadly, cyberwarfare and authoritarian forces are beyond our abilities to withstand, and this is now our only way forward.

Over 15,000 articles full of vital information that has helped tens of millions across the world take control of their health, will be removed. There was a time when people could debate and respect each other freely. That time is now gone. I believe laws are best applied like medicine – locally and specifically.

Local food, local democracy – our local community strength is the best way to achieve peace moving forward, and to stop authoritarian technocracy. I also believe we are at our strongest when we can care and maintain respect for each other. This is how we can make our most important decisions in life.

Again I will still be writing my daily articles that I started 25 years ago BUT they will only be available for 48 hours before they are removed. In this way I hope to continue my mission to help you take control of your health – but it’s up to you to download, share and repost this content. I will not be enforcing my copyright on this information so that you may freely share it.

Please also encourage others to read “The Truth About COVID-19,” where you will find much of the information from the past two years that people need to read to wake up and open their eyes. I am donating all earnings to the National Vaccine Information Center.

I want to thank all of you that have supported me over the years. I hope you can understand why I have decided to make this dramatic decision and hope the remaining ephemeral articles will be useful for those who wish to read them.

We will continue through these challenging times together, and remember this:

Your body was designed to stay healthy.

You hold in your hands the power to take control of your health.

Never let anyone take your right to health away from you.

Science can flourish only in an atmosphere of free speech. ~ Albert Einstein


MY FBI appeal has taken a long time to formulate. It should have been done in May. The FBI made the claim that privacy was the reason for not “confirming or denying” the existence of such records pursuant to exemptions (b)(6) and (b)(7)(C) of 5 USC subsection 552. For what it’s worth, here it is:

MR. BABAK TALEBIAN                                                                                                             July 26, 2021




WASHINGTON D.C. 20530                                                                          Request #:1495393-000

                                                                                                                         Subject: WESSEL, MARY MARGARET

My Dear Babak Talebian,

     This acknowledges my receipt of the FBI’s “response” to my reasonable FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request for information records from the FBI on my mother, Mary Margaret Wessel, found after her decease on February 20th, 2017. So, I, Mary Wessel Podlesak, her daughter, of Elkton, MD is unworthy of being informed of the FBI records relating to her death? Is that correct?  This authoritative denial is based on:

Subsection Title 5, US Code, Section 552


“personnel and medical files and similar files the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”


“Records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes, but only to the extent that the production of such law enforcement records or information (C) could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”

     You are making a claim of privacy for medical and personnel files.  Is this claim of privacy being made on behalf of my mother?  She’s already dead.  I have her fraudulent death certificate.  No autopsy was done.  No toxicology was done. The Lancaster, NY police would not investigate her death despite my pleading, with the claim that she died of natural causes with no foul play.  They justified this by the assertion that there was no forced entry, and five dollars was found in her wallet.  They “investigated” for a half an hour, in the middle of the night, and knew exactly what they were looking for.  They took 60 photos of the death scene, which is extraordinarily few by homicide department standards, mostly of doors and windows.  The attorney general of the State of NY ignored my pleas for an investigation.  There had to be a reason why no one would even condescend to interview me.  State police and police in other jurisdictions would not speak to me.  I couldn’t even hire private detectives. I had to become my own homicide detective.

     My son took a cadaver photo of her in the coffin, which indicated her missing denture was shoved down her throat and very likely the cause of her suffocation. Two towels next to her bed with suspicious looking bleach spots turned up positive for semen.  It appeared as though her hips were broken and her legs were slightly splayed apart. No one at the medical examiner’s office would do a rape test, because it was “icky”.  My conclusion: at least two men, must have been young, raped my mother and likely sodomized her by shoving their penises down her throat.  My mother was in a frail condition but able to take care of herself.  She was 91 years old.

     Several items were missing: money in an envelope, my mother had addressed to me for masses to be said after she died; a coo-coo clock from Germany; a navy sweater from WWII worn by my father; a radio from the 1940’s, a yellow bakelite from California; and all of my childhood photos.

     Her body had been staged in a straight line next to her bed. Her tongue protruded as if she had been choked.  She was naked from the waist down, with her pants, not her underwear, conveniently placed under her feet.  Her bedroom was a helter skelter of towels, underwear, blankets, etc. One blanket had obviously been thrown off the bed by 6 feet. The lights had been left on for 2+ months, so it had been the middle of the night when the murderers came.  Some of the lights in the bathroom went out as did the light next to her bed, but one light stayed on in the bathroom.  From calendars in the kitchen, I ascertained that she died December 27th, 2016.  That’s a big day for Freemasons.  It’s the feast of St. John.  Food in the refrigerator was almost untouched from the day I finished making it, December 24th, 2016.  The murderers must have gotten in through the garage, via an old garage door opener, which can be hacked easily.  My mother kept keys in a small nut/bolt drawer holder next to the door.  This key unlocked every door in the house.  Even an amateur thief would have been able to find them.  Based on all of this I came to the conclusion that my mother was murdered.  The question was, who did it?

     I knew I had issues with the FBI because years before I had confronted a police officer regarding vaccination of my children.  All four of them had autism.  The blowback from my confrontation was fast and furious.  Aside from my knowledge of personal crap I got from the FBI, was the information I learned from my Criminal Investigation course.  I discovered that the FBI regularly takes over cases that have been politicized, from local police. The FBI takeover of my mother’s death investigation could account for the Lancaster police’s lack of investigation and that of the NYS attorney general.

     The question is, who murdered Mary Margaret Wessel and profaned her bodily integrity with satanic relish?  Given the involvement of FBI personnel in the “plot” to kidnap Governor Witmer of Michigan, it seems likely, the FBI hired thugs to murder my mother.  They must have had pinpoint surveillance of me, of 9 Bradley Dr., Lancaster, of my cell phone, and of my car.  They knew when my mother was alone.  They saw me leave with my son Tom on December 24th, 2016. That should be illegal.  On December 27th, 2016, the feast of St. John, they moved in for the kill in the middle of the night.  Question:  Are those thugs still alive?  Are the personnel and medical records of these thugs, the ones you are protecting?  Does, my seeing them constitute an “unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.”?  If thugs working on behalf of the government with an axe to grind, can hide behind the color of law, then who among us is safe?

     I DEMAND any records the FBI has regarding my mother’s death.  If any videotapes were taken of her murder in her death throes, I DEMAND to see them.  As a Catholic she must forgive her persecutors before her death, or she won’t get to heaven soon.  My mother and I had our conflicts but I don’t want to see her spend a long time in purgatory.  Also, I want my stuff back, especially my childhood photos and the envelope written by my mother.

                                                         The FBI must be decertified and broken up,

My son’s Religious Exemption from the Covid19 vaccine mandate #2

Faith and Reason are the basis for my request for a religious exemption. Faith and Reason are drawn from Thomas Aquinas, and Pope John Paul II’s, “Fides et Ratio” which says, “Faith and Reason “mutually support each other.”” Faith requires that we avoid physically harming ourselves as well as others. Reason requires that the ingredients of any vaccine be examined for safety and efficacy. The Covid19 vaccines and all others, have no long term case-control studies which would provide such proof. Based on Faith and Reason, I will not take any vaccine.

Religious Exemption to the Covid 19 vaccine mandate

While it is essential that the role of conscience be preeminent in a Religious exemption to a vaccine mandate, particularly for the COVID19 vaccine exemption, conscience, in Catholic belief, must be informed. My conscience is guided by the harmony of faith and reason as espoused by Albert the Great and Thomas Aquinas. Pope John Paul II reiterated our dependence on faith and reason as the two wings on which we fly to the truth. Neither the COVID 19 vaccines nor other vaccines, whether it be for the flu, MMR, Tetanus, DPT, or any others, have been properly tested, especially, particularly, their ingredients in single and multi-factorial experiments to prove beyond doubt their safety and effectiveness. My faith backs up and supports my reason which informs my conscience. I, therefore, object to this forced mandate, both on my behalf and on behalf of my fellow students.

Father James Altman: Courageously denouncing Covid injection lies while asserting Eternal Truth

We’ve called out those in the clergy who have claimed to represent Christ and are urging people to go out and get the COVID injections, so it is only proper that we also give credit to the clergy when credit is due.

A Catholic priest in Wisconsin, James Altman of St. James The Less in La Crosse, has incurred the wrath of the corporate media for daring to defy health regulations, and for warning his congregation about the experimental COVID shots, pleading with them to NOT get them and become “guinea pigs.”

Here is their Church Bulletin from Easter Sunday that is driving the corporate media crazy:

James Altman has pretty much defied everyone in authority above him: the local health department, the Bishop William Callahan of the Diocese of La Crosse, and the Pope himself, all who support COVID measures such as masks, limiting indoor gatherings, and the deadly experimental shots.

Here’s another page from his church bulletin that pretty much sums up what he thinks of those in the clergy promoting the COVID shots and other measures:

This of course infuriates the corporate media and the corporate church.

In response to “disturbing reports” about COVID-19 misinformation from the La Crosse Tribune and the Associated Press, the grassroots Christian organization Faithful America on Tuesday launched a new petition calling on La Crosse Catholic Bishop William Callahan to permanently remove Father James Altman from all parish ministry.

The petition is expected to gather at least 10,000 signatures.

On Palm Sunday, Altman preached that COVID-19 health guidelines are “godless, Nazi-esque controls,” telling parishioners, “God damns every single one of those godless moves.” He also said Dr. Anthony Fauci’s support for masks “is damnable in the hottest fires of hell.”

On Easter, Altman packed in 300 to 500 parishioners, with at least 50 maskless people jammed in the first five pews — violating the Diocese of La Crosse’s mask mandate and capacity protocols. The church bulletin falsely claimed that COVID-19 vaccines don’t work, and repeated the debunked conspiracy theory that the shots change human genes.

The new Faithful America petition states in part, “As Christians who follow a healing savior, we are called to care for the sick and respect the God-given laws of nature.

Right now, that means supporting vaccines, masks and social distancing, just like Pope Francis. Fr. Altman is endangering not only his own parishioners but every essential worker they meet, and should be removed from St. James the Less Catholic Church before he can risk even one more life.” (Source.)

James Altman is obviously more concerned for his parishioners than he is about his own reputation and position in the corporate church, and for that we salute him, and pray for God’s protection over him.

Israeli Fashion Designer, Fully Vaccinated, Lie by Israelis that Covid killed him

Alber Elbaz is seen after the Lanvin show at Paris fashion week on 25 September 2014

Another public figure has died following injections of the experimental COVID shots.

Israeli fashion icon Alber Elbaz has reportedly died at an American hospital in Paris, France, over the weekend.

The French Press (Elbaz worked and lived in France) and many of the European Press have originally reported that his cause of death was “unknown,” but Israeli Press are now reporting that he died of the “South African variant of COVID-19,” while admitting that he was “fully vaccinated.”

The world of fashion mourns Alber Elbaz. The Israeli designer died yesterday at the age of 59 at the American Hospital in Paris. According to Wwd reports, the causes of death are still unknown but according to the Israeli newspaper Hareetz, the designer would have died from the consequences of Covid.

Born in Casablanca in 1961, and moved with his family to Israel when he was 10, Elbaz studied at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design and then moved to New York in 1985, where he was Geoffrey Beene’s right-hand man for 7 years.

Flew to Paris, Elbaz first designed Guy Laroche and then Yves Saint Laurent’s Rive Gauche label, before taking over the creative reins of Lanvin in 2001 until 2015: in 14 years, the designer revolutionized the French label, transforming it from a small family business founded by Jeanne Lanvin in 1889 to one of the most popular Parisian brands.

In a handful of seasons, Elbaz has managed to rejuvenate the Faubourg Saint-Honoré brand by focusing on the cocktail dress and its idea of ​​an elegant, sophisticated and hyper-feminine woman. In his collections there was never a lack of ruffles, draperies,

Demi Moore, Nicole Kidman, Catherine Deneuve and Kate Moss are just some of the stars she has dressed over the years, as is Meryl Streep, who collected the Oscar for The Iron Lady wrapped in a Lanvin dress. (Source.)

His death was described by some as “sudden.”

“It was with shock and enormous sadness that I heard of Alber’s sudden passing,” Richemont chairman Johann Rupert said in a statement. No cause of death was given. (Source.)

We are not sure why the Israeli Press is claiming he died from the “South African strain of coronavirus,” since he was hospitalized and died in Paris, but that is what they are claiming, while at the same time acknowledging that he was “fully vaccinated.”

The Times of Israel reports:

Alber Elbaz, a top Israeli fashion designer known for his industry-altering influence in the Paris fashion industry, died Saturday from the coronavirus in a Paris hospital. He was 59 years old.

According to Israel’s Channel 12 news, Elbaz was infected with the South African COVID variant despite being fully vaccinated. Elbaz, who was born in Morocco, has three siblings living in Israel and will be buried in the Jewish state. (Source.)

Since it is being reported that he was “fully vaccinated,” that means he probably received two doses of one of the experimental COVID injections, most likely either the Pfizer or Moderna mRNA shot, both of which are available in France.

AstraZeneca is also a 2-dose injection offered in France, but it was paused for a while, and is only offered to those in the same age range as Elbaz with certain other pre-existing conditions.

An Israeli study earlier this month (April, 2021) purported to claim that the South Africa strain of COVID-19 can “evade some of the protection of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.”

The coronavirus variant first discovered in South Africa is able to evade some of the protection of the PfizerBioNTech vaccine, according to a new Israeli study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed.

Researchers at Tel Aviv University and Clalit, the largest health-care organization in Israel, examined nearly 400 people who had tested positive for Covid-19 after receiving at least one dose of the vaccine. They compared them to the same number of people who were infected and unvaccinated.

The researchers found the prevalence of the variant from South Africa, known as B.1.351, among patients who received two doses of the vaccine was about eight times higher than those who were unvaccinated. The data, published online over the weekend, suggest the B.1.351 is better able to “break through” the protection of the vaccine than the original strain, the researchers wrote in the study. (Source.)

Of course there are two ways to interpret this study, although the press release only gave one interpretation: the new variant virus “evaded” the Pfizer COVID “vaccine.”

The other interpretation, since more people injected with the Pfizer shots allegedly tested positive for this “new strain” than those without the injections, would be that there is actually a causative relationship between the Pfizer shots and this alleged “new strain.”

That potential interpretation will, of course, be rejected outright by medical authorities and their corporate media, because it is bad press for the new shots and will reduce sales.

It would also give further evidence that the injections themselves contributed to or caused the death of Mr. Elbaz.

According Dr. Michael Yeadon, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy and Respiratory, variants of the original COVID-19 virus are no more contagious or dangerous than the first Wuhan version, as they are over 97% the same. See:

Former Pfizer Vice President Dr. Yeadon: COVID Variants NOT More Dangerous – Booster Shots Not Needed but Could be Used for Mass Murder

Many thousands of people worldwide have now been reported dead following injections of these experimental COVID shots, many of them high profile public figures like Mr. Elbaz where it is difficult to hide their deaths and the circumstances surrounding them, and yet the medical authorities continue to claim that they are all “coincidences” and not related to the COVID shots.

As we have previously reported, deaths following the COVID injections and are reported to the CDC VAERS system, now exceed deaths reported following FDA approved vaccines for the past 15 years COMBINED. See:

MASS MURDER: 3,486 DEATHS in the U.S. Following COVID Injections in 4 Months: More Vaccine Deaths Recorded Than the Past 15 Years COMBINED

How long will the public keep buying this lie before they wake up and figure out, perhaps too late, that this has been the plan all along?

The World Health Organization, the United Nations, the Rockefeller Foundation, and many others have been saying for years that we need to reduce the world’s population in order to save the Earth from being destroyed by climate change.

So why should it surprise people that they are now putting their plans into action to reduce the world’s population through these experimental injections?

This is no longer a “conspiracy theory.” It is a plan being executed in full view of the public, most of whom are still asleep and expecting the world to go back to “normal” if they just keep obeying everything the medical tyrants tell them to do, and surrender all their freedoms.

And in many cases, as we are now seeing, they are sacrificing their lives as well.

So believe what you want, and live with the consequences. Because the facts that both sides agree upon, are that Mr. Elbaz got the shots, and now he is dead.

He joins a very fast growing list of others that also got the shots, and are now DEAD.
