Alternative media legend Ron Unz, the world’s most important writer on the origins of COVID, returns to Truth Jihad Radio to discuss his latest: “American Pravda: ‘The Truth’ and ‘The Whole Truth’ About the Origins of Covid-19.” In it he updates his analysis citing important new sources including Nicholas Wade’s work. As I wrote in my latest American Free Press op-ed:
Wade’s new article “The origin of COVID: Did people or nature open Pandora’s box at Wuhan?” makes the strongest case yet for the laboratory origin hypothesis. Wade begins by exposing mainstream attempts to debunk the lab origin hypothesis as scientifically-bankrupt propaganda. Any qualified scientist, and even intelligent non-experts, can see that the Lancet and Nature Medicine articles purporting to prove COVID’s natural origin are absurd lies that the authors themselves cannot possibly have believed. Yet these two empty propaganda salvos were enough to terrorize most of the world’s scientific and journalistic communities into silence. As Wade writes:
“Science is supposedly a self-correcting community of experts who constantly check each other’s work. So why didn’t other virologists point out that the Andersen group’s argument was full of absurdly large holes? Perhaps because in today’s universities speech can be very costly. Careers can be destroyed for stepping out of line….The Daszak and Andersen letters were really political, not scientific, statements, yet were amazingly effective. Articles in the mainstream press repeatedly stated that a consensus of experts had ruled lab escape out of the question or extremely unlikely.”
The truth was and remains precisely the opposite. It is the natural origin hypothesis that is “out of the question or extremely unlikely.” Wade explains that COVID, unlike all other naturally-emerging diseases, has left no traces whatsoever of any journey from any animal species into humans. No bat population harbors any conceivable precursor to COVID. No intermediate species has been found. No evidence exists of the virus being picked up by humans and gradually evolving to become more suited to infecting humans. Instead, COVID just miraculously appeared, beautifully tailored to target humans in ultra-contagious low-lethality “perfect anti-economy bioweapon” fashion, beginning in October 2019—the same exact moment that 300 American military servicemen, perhaps including a few biowar black ops specialists, descended on Wuhan for the World Military Games.
Ron Unz’s work on the origins of COVID is so compelling that the Deep State felt compelled to deplatform The Unz Review from Google and social media, beginning just days after his first article on the subject was published.
