Jeffrey Sachs: “Pretty Convinced” that SARS CoV‑2 came from a “US Lab”

Hav­ing chaired a “Lancet” com­mis­sion on the ori­gins of Covid-19, Dr. Jef­frey Sachs has opined that he is “pret­ty con­vinced” that the virus orig­i­nat­ed in a U.S. biotech­nol­o­gy lab­o­ra­to­ry.

In the lat­est one-hour Patre­on talks, Mr. Emory rumi­nates about the recent rad­i­cal right rul­ings of the Supreme Court. In addi­tion, we fur­ther dis­cuss the ter­ri­fy­ing alliance between Metabio­ta, In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s ven­ture cap­i­tal arm to pro­vide pan­dem­ic insur­ance.

In the lat­est Patre­on talks, Mr. Emory rumi­nates about the repeal of Roe v. Wade and a ter­ri­fy­ing com­mer­cial alliance between the Covid/EcoHealth Alliance-linked Metabio­ta and Munich Rein­sur­ance to offer pan­dem­ic insur­ance to–among others–pension funds!

Eugene McCarthy Revisited

We have dis­cussed the dubi­ous con­nec­tions of the late Sen­a­tor Eugene McCarthy of Min­neso­ta, the “Peace Can­di­date” who upend­ed the 1968 Pres­i­den­tial race. We note his remark­able, reveal­ing 1980 endorse­ment of “Peace Can­di­date” Ronald Rea­gan: ” . . . . Mr. McCarthy said he had come to the con­clu­sion that Mr. Rea­gan’s posi­tions on nuclear dis­ar­ma­ment and tax­es were bet­ter than Pres­i­dent Carter’s . . . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

Ukrainian Phoenix Program?

The cleans­ing pro­gram being imple­ment­ed by the Zelen­sky gov­ern­ment and the SBU intel­li­gence ser­vice of Ukraine appears to be a Euro­pean man­i­fes­ta­tion of the Phoenix Pro­gram: ” . . . . Dou­glas Valen­tine, author of the sem­i­nal book The Phoenix Pro­gram (1990), in a recent inter­view told me that Phoenix went pub­lic in 1968 under the jus­ti­fi­ca­tion that it was ‘pro­tect­ing the peo­ple from terrorism’—like with the SBU pro­grams today. The deten­tions were large­ly designed to encour­age defec­tions while strik­ing fear in the pub­lic. . . .” ” . . . . Valen­tine . . . sees eerie par­al­lels between the orig­i­nal Phoenix pro­gram and Zelensky’s oper­a­tions today. In both cas­es, Valen­tine told CAM in an exclu­sive inter­view, ‘neu­tral­ism wasn’t tol­er­at­ed.’ . . .” Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

Bringin’ It All Back Home? Again?

West­ern intel­li­gence agencies–American in particular–appear to be reca­pit­u­lat­ing “Oper­a­tion Cyclone” in Ukraine. That oper­a­tion involved the train­ing and oper­a­tional inser­tion of Islamists into Afghanistan in that coun­try’s war against the Sovi­et Union. “Cyclone 2” entails the use of Nazi/White Suprema­cist com­bat­ants in a clan­des­tine effort against Rus­sia in Ukraine. An impor­tant arti­cle from “The Gray Zone” reit­er­ates the warn­ing sound­ed here for years agout the “blow­back” this will be hav­ing in the U.S. Ukrain­ian tele­vi­sion anchor quotes Adolf Eich­mann ver­ba­tim in this video from UKRAINE 24.

The Patre­on site con­tin­ues to devel­op and take form: The first Zoom Q & A Ses­sion is sched­uled for 6/5 at 2pm Pacif­ic Time. A theme of the talk Fri­day was how to best bridge the gap between new, cred­i­ble doc­u­ment­ed infor­ma­tion that con­flicts with peo­ple’s pre-exist­ing beliefs and the chang­ing of those beliefs.
