“As members of a World Health Organization expert team have made international headlines recently dismissing as “extremely unlikely” the possibility that a laboratory accident in Wuhan, China, could have sparked the COVID-19 pandemic, I can’t stop thinking of the hundreds of lab accidents that are secretly occurring just in the United States.
“As an investigative reporter, I have spent more than a decade revealing shocking safety breaches that officials at laboratories in our own country don’t want the public to know about…
“The notion that more than 2.7 million deaths worldwide – so far – could be the result of a lab accident has been met with skepticism and derision by many journalists and scientists who often portray it as a crackpot conspiracy theory fueled by former President Donald Trump’s China-bashing rhetoric. Without question, the lab-leak theory has been politically and racially weaponized in ugly ways. Nonetheless, that rhetoric needs to be separated from legitimate questions about lab safety that are deserving of investigation.
“Science, like journalism, is supposed to be about facts and about getting to the truth. But those who dare seek answers to reasonable questions about any lab accidents in Wuhan are accused of peddling conspiracies.”

It worked so well with 9/11, so why not use it with a pandemic.
First you sow a thought-seed ~~> The most infectious disease of the century is a suddenly appearing strange, new, never before seen — wink wink — virus that just escaped out of a living bat in a a primitive alive animal food market swarming with people in Wuhan, China.
Thought-seed two ~~> Validate thught-seed-1 by “proving” the existence of the virus by providing a handy digital visualization image of something created by a graphic artist that is referred to as “coronavirus” with its fungi-looking “spikes” The image is so catchy we can practically imagine our children or our dog playing with one in the park or picking one up at the thrift store and then dangling it from the ceiling above the TV.
Thought-seed three ~~> Hire an academic statistician with a history of bad statistical predictions from an indisputably prestigious British university to manufacture a horrific statistical forecast about the apocalyptic disease with advice to require masks and lock down the global population. When the scientific pushback on the contrived statistical claims arrives a few days later, simply withdraw the “study”, go silent, and let the media amplify the lie.
Thought-seed four ~~> Provide a few hand-picked “experts” to be the faces of the pandemic. That they specialize in virology and disregard all alternative explanations for all diseases is fitting because it has already been established that a novel virus is the cause of so much justifiable hysteria. Unquestionably, there can be no alternative explanations.
Thought-seed five ~~> Play on people’s fears by generating a meme that encourages the masses and their leaders to be selfless by wearing masks, socially distancing (rather than physical distancing, and quarantine / lockdown to protect others. “If you dont wear a mask, you may end up killing someone.”
Thought-seed six ~~> “We have the antidote”
Thought-seed seven ~~> Anything that disputes and/or dissents from the preceding memes is “fake news” and “anti-science and promotes. “Censorship saves lives.”
And know that the media will blow the pandemic out of proportion without once questioning the “science” because viruses and vaccines have been essential elements of the hypnotic suggestion throughout the lives of most people alive today.
