The coronavirus is all over the news, and apparently, on the minds of a great many readers of this website, because out of about 500+ emails from readers last week, it topped the list of "subjects" people sent me at about 23 emails with that as the subject matter by my count. And if the truth be told, I've not been watching the story that closely. When it first broke, my reaction was "another SARS" phenomenon.

But with this, there may be something more sinister lurking in the story, that something being comprised of two things: biowarfare, and timing. For example,V.T.,  P.T., and E.G. found articles that strongly suggest that what is happening in China may have come from a biowarfare lab:

CORONAVIRUS is a Patented Virus

Among the speculations being advanced regarding the virus outbreak is its concurrence with Chinese astrology and the Chinese Lunar New Year, as E.G. pointed out to me in sending the article.

However, that's not what caught my eye in all of this. What caught my eye was one of those details in the Zero Hedge article that, following Mark Twain's observation about the theory of evolution, I intend to gain wholesale returns of high octane speculation for a minimum investment of fact. But the detail is there, so one might as well speculate about it. The Zero Hedge article traces the coronavirus outbreak from a Saudi patient, to the Netherlands, to Winnepeg, Manitoba, where the virus was apparently stolen by Chinese biowarfare espionage agents planted inside of Canada's level-4 National Microbiology Laboratory:

Coronavirus arrived at Canada’s NML Winnipeg facility on May 4, 2013 from the Dutch lab. The Canadian lab grew up stocks of the virus and used it to assess diagnostic tests being used in Canada. Winnipeg scientists worked to see which animal species can be infected with the new virus.

Research was done in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s national lab, the National Centre for Foreign Animal Diseases which is housed in the same complex as the National Microbiology Laboratory.

NML has a long history of offering comprehensive testing services for coronaviruses. It isolated and provided the first genome sequence of the SARS coronavirus and identified another coronavirus NL63 in 2004.

This Winnipeg based Canadian lab was targeted by Chinese agents in what could be termed as Biological Espionage.


In March 2019, in mysterious event a shipment of exceptionally virulent viruses from Canada’s NML ended up in China. The event caused a major scandal with Bio-warfare experts questioning why Canada was sending lethal viruses to China. Scientists from NML said the highly lethal viruses were a potential bio-weapon.

Following investigation, the incident was traced to Chinese agents working at NML. Four months later in July 2019, a group of Chinese virologists were forcibly dispatched from the Canadian National Microbiology Laboratory (NML). The NML is Canada’s only level-4 facility and one of only a few in North America equipped to handle the world’s deadliest diseases, including Ebola, SARS, Coronavirus, etc.

The NML scientist who was escorted out of the Canadian lab along with her husband, another biologist, and members of her research team is believed to be a Chinese Bio-Warfare agent Xiangguo Qiu. Qiu was the head of the Vaccine Development and Antiviral Therapies Section in the Special Pathogens Program at Canada’s NML.

The article also speculates on a possible Chinese strategy for a "bloodless victory" against the West using biowarfare agents, and their cures:

James Giordano, a neurology professor at Georgetown University and senior fellow in Biowarfare at the U.S. Special Operations Command, said China’s growing investment in bio-science, looser ethics around gene-editing and other cutting-edge technology and integration between government and academia raise the spectre of such pathogens being weaponized.

That could mean an offensive agent, or a modified germ let loose by proxies, for which only China has the treatment or vaccine. “This is not warfare, per se,” he said. “But what it’s doing is leveraging the capability to act as global saviour, which then creates various levels of macro and micro economic and bio-power dependencies.”

In other words, create a deadly pathogen, release it, and then wait a while... then announce that your country, and your country alone, has the cure. Want to live? Surrender, and take our cure. The article also says something else:

The PLA is pursuing military applications for biology and looking into promising intersections with other disciplines, including brain science, supercomputing, and artificial intelligence. Since 2016, the Central Military Commission has funded projects on military brain science, advanced biomimetic systems, biological and biomimetic materials, human performance enhancement, and “new concept” biotechnology.  (Emphasis added)

So... "Surrender, and accept our cure, and live," only the "cure" is loaded with nanobots which can be "turned on" and kill you, if you don't mind your masters and think appropriate thoughts. In that regard, it's important to recall that China's "social credit system" is already monitoring and rewarding, or punishing people to a draconian degree that we can only imagine.

But none of this is that "little detail" that has me wondering and that has my high octane speculation motor running in overdrive.  The little detail is that the Chinese agent caught and expelled from the Canadian research laboratory hails from an unusual place:

Xiangguo Qiu is an outstanding Chinese scientist born in Tianjin. She primarily received her medical doctor degree from Hebei Medical University in China in 1985 and came to Canada for graduate studies in 1996. Later on, she was affiliated with the Institute of Cell Biology and the Department of Pediatrics and Child Health of the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, not engaged with studying pathogens. (Emphasis added)

Born in Tianjin.

You remember Tianjin? Tianjin is the city east of Beijing that had that  strange chemical plant explosion a few years ago that leveled several blocks of the city... and that left a crater that had a very odd signature for an alleged chemical explosion, for it was not the flat concave crater that one would expect, but rather, a narrow and deep conical crater. In fact, the crater was so narrow and so deep that it had many - this author included - wondering if the chemical plant had been the victim of a "rod of God' attack by a space-based kinetic weapon.

That a Chinese biowarfare spy ejected from Canada's National Microbiology Laboratory hails from the same city as the first of those Chinese chemical plant explosions strikes me as more than just a little "odd", and perhaps more than just a "coincidence." As yet, I've seen no indication that anyone has investigated this strange coincidence for any deeper potential significance. So for the moment it much remain just a high octane speculation.

I don't know about you, however, but I find that "coincidence" more than just a little unsettling, because it suggests that there may be a covert "hot war" being fought right under our noses...

Houston chemical plant explosion, anyone?

Anyway, perhaps it is time for the powers that be to rethink the ease with which they allow Chinese "scientists" into their sensitive facilities. Perhaps it's time for an embargo on all Chinese students in the West.

See you on the flip side...
