Wall Street Journal: Proof of Covid's Creation in a Lab Are Encoded Into Its Very Genetic Sequencing

The proof is in the pairing.

But the most compelling reason to favor the lab leak hypothesis is firmly based in science. In particular, consider the genetic fingerprint of CoV-2, the novel coronavirus responsible for the disease Covid-19.

In gain-of-function research, a microbiologist can increase the lethality of a coronavirus enormously by splicing a special sequence into its genome at a prime location. Doing this leaves no trace of manipulation. But it alters the virus spike protein, rendering it easier for the virus to inject genetic material into the victim cell. Since 1992 there have been at least 11 separate experiments adding a special sequence to the same location. The end result has always been supercharged viruses.

A genome is a blueprint for the factory of a cell to make proteins. The language is made up of three-letter "words," 64 in total, that represent the 20 different amino acids. For example, there are six different words for the amino acid arginine, the one that is often used in supercharging viruses. Every cell has a different preference for which word it likes to use most.

In the case of the gain-of-function supercharge, other sequences could have been spliced into this same site. Instead of a CGG-CGG (known as "double CGG") that tells the protein factory to make two arginine amino acids in a row, you'll obtain equal lethality by splicing any one of 35 of the other two-word combinations for double arginine. If the insertion takes place naturally, say through recombination, then one of those 35 other sequences is far more likely to appear; CGG is rarely used in the class of coronaviruses that can recombine with CoV-2.

In fact, in the entire class of coronaviruses that includes CoV-2, the CGG-CGG combination has never been found naturally. That means the common method of viruses picking up new skills, called recombination, cannot operate here. A virus simply cannot pick up a sequence from another virus if that sequence isn't present in any other virus.


So: CGG is a rare "word" in the genetic lexicon in coronaviruses-- at least, in naturally-occurring coronavirues. Further, it has no means of "picking up" this word from another virus, as other viruses don't have this genetic word in their vocabularies.

But guess where CGG is not rare at all?!!

Do you have your guess?

Then collect your winnings.

Although the double CGG is suppressed naturally, the opposite is true in laboratory work. The insertion sequence of choice is the double CGG. That's because it is readily available and convenient, and scientists have a great deal of experience inserting it. An additional advantage of the double CGG sequence compared with the other 35 possible choices: It creates a useful beacon that permits the scientists to track the insertion in the laboratory.

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?

Because the lab leak hypothesis is the lab leak fact - and they knew this, and they ran yet another information op against the American public (and American scientists) to bully them into frightened silence.

This post discusses the coming political earthquake, when the government and media are forced to admit what is obvious: that the lab-leak is not only possible, but is in fact the only sensible explanation for covid.

The Biden administration would then be under excruciating pressure to adopt an extremely hardline policy toward Beijing.... Perceptions that covid began in a Chinese virology lab, though, would compel the White House to adopt even stronger, more confrontational, measures....

Biden's allies in Congress and the mainstream media likely would find themselves under ferocious attack as well. The earlier attempt to stifle debate and exonerate the PRC government from any responsibility for the onset or spread of covid would be in danger of backfiring spectacularly. Critics might even question whether that campaign was merely an error born of rabid, unthinking hostility toward any position the Trump administration embraced, or whether more nefarious motives--including financial ties to the Chinese government--played a role.


And so, preparing for that day of reckoning, the entire media is echoing the claim of Chris Wallace of the "fair and balanced" "news" channel Fox -- It's all Trump's fault that the media lied and claimed there was no chance the virus came from a Fauci-funded lab!

He tricked them into propagandizing for the PRC and silencing people through Neo-McCarthyite witch hunting!


Do enjoy the below video, in which Doctor Faustus, I mean, Fauci, tells us that of course he contracted out dangerous genetic manipulation of viruses to China -- because it would keep us safe if it were done in China!

I mean, China's all the way over there! There's no way an outbreak could travel from China to the US!

By the way, Doctor Faustus euphemizes gain-of-function research to make bat viruses infectious to humans as "bat-human interface" research.

Update: Wuhan researcher Shi Zengli -- "the Bat Lady" -- lists a grant from Fauci's NIAID on her resume.
