Two experts: evidence COV-19 came from a lab is ‘firmly based in science’

The Wall Street Journal is behind a paywall, therefore, we will give the most complete summary of this important article that we can.

In an opinion piece at the Wall Street Journal by Dr. Steven Quay and Richard Muller, the authors state it is more than circumstantial evidence that suggests a Wuhan lab leak, the most compelling reason is “firmly based in science.”

There are sequences in the coronavirus that we don’t typically see in nature. That is the bottom line. The clues are in the analysis of the virus’s DNA — the genome sequence, the authors assert. The combination of the virus’s DNA segments has never been found in nature in any other coronavirus. In fact, the sequence is so perfect that it is the exact sequence the scientists would use to achieve gain-of-function.

The article explains that in gain-of-function, a microbiologist can significantly increase coronavirus lethality by splicing a special sequence into its genome at a prime location. It doesn’t leave a trace of manipulation but it alters the virus spike protein. That makes it easier for the virus to inject genetic material into the victim cell.

In all of the CoV-2 coronaviruses, the CGG-CGG combination has never been found naturally. That means recombination cannot take place. “A virus simply cannot pick up a sequence from another virus if that sequence isn’t present in any other virus.”

For a number of reasons, CGG is perfect for laboratory work, however.

The doctors write:

Now the damning fact. It was this exact sequence that appears in CoV-2. Proponents of zoonotic origin must explain why the novel coronavirus, when it mutated or recombined, happened to pick its least favorite combination, the double CGG. Why did it replicate the choice the lab’s gain-of-function researchers would have made?

Yes, it could have happened randomly, through mutations. But do you believe that? At the minimum, this fact—that the coronavirus, with all its random possibilities, took the rare and unnatural combination used by human researchers—implies that the leading theory for the origin of the coronavirus must be laboratory escape.

When Dr. Shi and her colleagues of Wuhan lab published her paper in February 2020, they failed to mention the special sequence.

“But in a matter of weeks virologists Bruno Coutard and colleagues published their discovery of the sequence in CoV-2 and its novel supercharged site. Double CGG is there; you only have to look.”

Unlike other viruses, COV-19 began as an already contagious version.

“Such early optimization is unprecedented, and it suggests a long period of adaptation that predated its public spread.” In other words, gain-of-function.

The authors conclude: The presence of the double CGG sequence is strong evidence of gene splicing, and the absence of diversity in the public outbreak suggests gain-of-function acceleration. The scientific evidence points to the conclusion that the virus was developed in a laboratory.

Dr. Quay is founder of Atossa Therapeutics and author of “Stay Safe: A Physician’s Guide to Survive Coronavirus.” Mr. Muller is an emeritus professor of physics at the University of California Berkeley and a former senior scientist at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

SIDE NOTE

Yesterday, we posted the information about the now-missing CCP military scientist who filed a patent for a vaccine for COV in February 2020. That does suggest the virus had been around for some time.

The Daily Wire reports: David Asher, who led the Trump administration’s investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic, told Fox News during the last week in May that he had U.S. government biostatisticians calculate the probability that the coronavirus developed evolved in nature and that they concluded that it was “about one in 13 billion.”

Please refer to Covid19 as the CCP Virus. This needs to be repeated until it sinks in.

Let’s stop using all the left’s language that is designed to sugar cost things.

The CCP virus wasn’t created in a lab; it was created in a weapons laboratory.
It is not a “gain of function” virus, it is a bio-weapon.
The virus didn’t “escape” from the weapons lab, it was released.
Fauci may be a doctor, but so was Megele.

An international court should indict and try fauci and his buddies for crimes against humanity.

Thanks for this fine summary. Notice that the Trump hating WSJ and other sources are suddenly coming out with actual information of the virus structure which shows that it is synthetic. This structural information, plus the origination of the virus at a place which was factually engaged in gain of function research on that type of virus, establishes that the virus is a synthetic bioweapon. No reasonable, honest official can say otherwise.

The USA is a failed nation, scientifically and ethically. We do not have competent and honest people to step forward over a year ago and insist the virus is now what we know it to be.

For a year we have had enough circumstantial evidence to indicate that SARS-Cov-2 was manufactured and came from the Wuhan Lab. We convict murders to death on less circumstantial evidence. The Deep State wants absolute 100% verifiable evidence because the Deep State was involved up to it’s eyeballs in the funding of this Biological Weapon on the foreign soil of a hostile country. No matter how you look at it, it is Treason, so the cover up will continue. The Government and the Bureaucratic Deep State will protect itself at all cost. The People must take back control of the Federal Government and Politicians. We must elect people who serve our interest.

A bigger issue is the CCP allowed the Virus to escape their borders. Then the Democrat Party created a Virus Hoax to enable them to change law by “mandate” to steal the 2020 Election. The Executive Branch and the Courts should be restricted from making any Mandates. Only the Legislative Body makes Law. ALL Mandates must require the confirmation of respective Legislative Bodies to have the power of Law, or any power at all. The Executive should do only what the law specifically allows, The Courts should ONLY have the power apply the law. If a Law does not meet Constitutional Muster the Court can strike it down, in total. Courts should not be allowed to “interpret” Law and create new Law from what it likes without the Legislative Branch passing the “interpretation” into law.

This whole COVID incident has shown us how out of control our Government has become at virtually every level and The People must take back control of the Government or we will live in Tyranny. One of the things we have learned is that Political Parties are not in the best interest of The People and leads to corruption in Government. Today we have one Party totally aligned with at least one Foreign Power. The Party’s Leader, Traitor Joe, is totally compromised by foreign Governments and it is clear that his electoral win was Fraudulent. Again we convict people to Death on less evidence than we have seen with the corrupt 2020 Election.

Trump says the stolen election was the “Greatest Crime of the Century.” Trump is wrong.It was the ChiCom conspiracy to destroy the economy and social fabric of the US and the world that was the greatest crime. The stolen election was just part of the coverup. Having destroyed the economy of their greatest opponent the ChiComs had to cover up their crime and that was to help their allies such as Zuckkerberg, Dorsey, the MSM, the Maoist vermin that masquerade as the Democratic Party, and a host of others to steal the election. Otherwise, Trump would have gotten to the bottom of it and the ChiCom plot both exposed and punished. It is time for the military with the aid of a million Patriots to arrest the traitors and install our President back in the White House.
