As the evidence piles up pointing toward a Wuhan, China lab leak being the origin of the coronavirus pandemic, and as it becoming accepted as a mainstream credible likelihood, it has emerged that Joe Biden’s administration shut down an investigation into the theory that was initiated under President Trump.
The probe was opened by the State Department under former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has long maintained that the lab leak needs to be looked at in more depth.
CNN reports that the main thrust of the investigation was to examine China’s biological weapons program, and determine if it had a “greater role in the pandemic’s origin in Wuhan.”
The report notes that “Officials involved in the effort relied on scientific research as well as public and classified information to probe the lab leak theory, including looking into any possible connection between the virus and the Chinese government’s biological weapons program.”
It continues, “The US government has said that it believes China maintained an offensive biological weapons program even after joining the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention in 1984. China refutes this.”
However, before it properly got off the ground, the probe was shut down by Biden officials, who claimed that there were too many concerns about the quality of the evidence.
As we reported Tuesday, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki declared that evidence pointing to a Chinese lab leak causing the coronavirus pandemic does not constitute “enough data and information to jump to a conclusion,” and indicated that the US will not conduct its own investigation.
Instead, the Biden administration has thrown its weight behind the World Health Organisation, despite the fact that the health body previously complained that it had ‘not been invited’ by China to investigate the outbreak, and has continually been criticised for propping up Communist Party talking points.
In addition, after spending months trying to negotiate a visit, WHO officials largely absolved China of blame for the outbreak after visiting the virus lab in Wuhan for just 3 hours.
Pompeo himself expressed his disgust this week at witnessing government scientists over the past year dismissing the possibility of COVID-19 originating from a lab “when they surely must have seen the same information that I had seen.”
“That includes, certainly, Dr. Fauci as well,” Pompeo noted:
President Trump also issued a statement Tuesday, noting that he was “right” about the lab leak theory:
This week a previously unseen US intelligence report revealed that at least three researchers working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where coronavirus experiments were being conducted, were hospitalised in mid November 2019 with symptoms matching those of COVID.
It adds to the mountains of evidence pointing to the lab leak that has been accumulating for over a year, with prominent scientists and intelligence figures lending their weight to the notion.
With numerous official entities now being forced to backtrack and acknowledge that the lab leak origin is a real possibility, media outlets and fact checkers are scrambling to reverse previous statements on the issue.
Mask mandate may relax in Miami-Dade schools
The mask mandate for students in some South Florida schools could be eased by the end of October as local rates of COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations continue to fall, officials said.
The number of students needing to quarantine in Miami-Dade County public schools has dropped significantly since school started in August, school Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said Wednesday.
He said the decision would be based on the latest COVID-19 data and the advice of a task force of local doctors advising the district.
The easing of the mask policy would give parents an opt-out provision for their children, he said.
A parental opt out was the original back-to-school plan in Miami. But the delta variant spread rapidly across Florida during the summer, causing a spike in cases, hospitalizations and deaths.
The district, which is the state’s largest, joined a handful of other districts — representing about half of Florida’s public school students — in adopting mask requirements with an opt-out only for medical reasons.
That defied an order by Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, whose administration directed schools to allow parents to decide whether children wore masks in school.
In Miami-Dade last week, less than 1,000 of the district’s 330,000 students were required to quarantine, which was an all-time low, Carvalho said. He attributed the success to the district’s COVID-19 protocols, including mask mandates and quarantine policies.
The school mask issue landed in court, and the state began imposing financial penalties on districts defying the state mandate. The penalties have included docking salaries of local school board members who voted to impose student mask mandates.
Dozens of protesters attend Miami Beach Mayor’s conference to clarify controversial comments in virtual meeting to reform South Beach
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber is facing more controversy following comments he made about reforming South Beach.
The mayor, along with others, want a change in the entertainment district, but the discussion on how to go about it has some people upset.
In audio leaked from the Sept. 13 online meeting, Gelber is heard saying, “I commit to you this, if you want something on the ballot, because it needs to be on the ballot, I’ll put it on the ballot.”

Patent approved: U.S. government could mandate social credit score and tracking app to implement forced COVID-19 vaccinations
A U.S. patent approved August 31, 2021, reveals technology used to track people in order to pinpoint those allegedly more likely to spread COVID-19 and to identify unvaccinated individuals so they can be injected with the experimental shots.
The patent was filed by Israeli patent attorneys Dr. Gal Ehrlich and Maier Fenster of Ehrlich & Fenster.
The technology used in the patent analyzes data collected by smartphones, government-mandated phone apps, intelligence agencies, public cameras, ATM cameras, private business cameras and other sources.
Essentially, people will be given “scores” based on vaccination status, mask-wearing, behavior, movement, socialization and other factors.
Electronic devices communicating with each other will determine whether or not someone is a “super spreader” or a “non-super spreader” based on the various elements.
As seen in the diagram below, the collection of surveillance technologies will send data to be analyzed in order to determine a “score” that places the person into a group.
Each group is ranked so the government can prioritize who to vaccinate next.
Another diagram shows a web of individuals being tracked while in public.
According to the document, “the government may order the citizens to install a dedicated application on their smartphones (or other smart devices like tablets, smartwatches, smart glasses, etc.) to help the government with the logistics of the vaccination procedures.”
“The government (or other body) provides the public with such dedicated smart devices,” it continues. “In some embodiments, the app and/or the smart device is configured to inform on the user’s location at all times and to communicate with adjacent smart devices (via Bluetooth for example( to assess the interactions between users, for example, vicinity between users, movement of users, etc.)”
The paper says existing technology could also be used to track people, such as Android and iPhone cell phone software.
Geolocation data will be monitored using cellphones, social media, credit card usage, IP addresses, facial recognition technology found in surveillance cameras, ATM’s, and private surveillance cameras in stores, buildings and houses.
Providing examples of tracking a subject’s behavior, the patent says it could determine if a person is “wearing a mask” by “analyzing images taken during calls” or if a person is “washing his hands” by “analyzing sounds of water running or movement by a smartwatch.”
Some experts, such as Dr. Robert Young and Dr. Vladimir Zev Zelenko, suggest graphene oxide put into the human body via “vaccination” could interact with satellites or cell towers in order to deliver information about the subject.
“What I’m suggesting is the inoculation is a guise to literally put in metallic materials, that are potentially magnetic, to interact with satellites or cell towers with the human body,” Dr. Robert Young said. “In other words, rather than using a cell phone you can use your body and your cell phone for remotely testing, let’s say, blood sugars or blood pressure or oxygen levels. And this is what the patent actually suggests that Pfizer took out, that was awarded just last month, 31 August of this year.”
“This was the conclusion that I came to: that it is the very first patent that shows up in a list of about 18,500 for the purpose of contact tracing of, I believe, all vaccinated humans worldwide who will be or are now connected to the Internet of Things,” he told Stew Peters in September.
Around the 40:00 minute mark in the following interview, Dr. Zelenko describes the COVID tracking system in the patent.
“It describes a technology that already exists in the vaccines to measure your internal physiological data and transmit that information with your location to a third party,” he said.
