Separating the wheat from the chaff on gain-of-function research

Separating the wheat from the chaff on gain-of-function research

I have never been comfortable with the narrative of covid-19 as a “SCAMdemic”.  It always seemed to simplistic; the reality was always more complicated.

Now I see reasons why I was right.

Normally, I tend not to attack or denounce people unless I see straight-out lying but to endeavour to see each person as providing  a “piece of the puzzle”.

I want to make an exception in this case. I have followed Patrick Henningsen and 21st Century Wire for a number of years and have respected their analysis in geopolitics. 

This, however has been seriously eroded over the last year when I have seen what he has to say about covid-21. 

My disillusion with Henningsen was complete when the Hunter Biden tapes came out last year.  His complete (and in my mind, unforgiveable) dishonesty came to the fore when he wrote articles about Hunter Biden and UKRAINE, but remained completely silent about the CCP blackmail operation.

Basically, he was saying:

“Don’t look here. Look over there”.

This means that he does not have a hypothesis or a theory; he is not speculating based on what he knows but he is seeing everything from an ideological position whereby the People’s Republic of China and the Chinese Communist Party are as pure as the whitest snow, something that earns as much disgust as the US Establishment he likes to attack.

Cutting to the chase, Patrick Henningsen is a unreconstructed apologist for the Chinese Communist Party.

It was a matter of great disappointment to see him using Dr. Sam Bailey of New Zealand to push his ideological baggage.

Gaslighting: The Truth About ‘Gain of Function’

Much has been made of the “Wuhan Lab Leak” theory and the notorious ‘gain of function’ talking point in recent months, as Americans and other people in the west look desperately for any scapegoat to pin the blame on for the alleged ‘global pandemic’ which has befallen the world over the last 15 months. They want someone external to blame – anyone but their own naive selves and their corrupt government-media-pharma complex

In the alternative media, much of the early hype was generated by various ‘whistleblowers’ who used the spectre of ‘gain of function’ in order to confer a certain mystique and incredible superpowers to the ‘novel’ coronavirus, and when added to a narrative featuring Dr Fauci and the Wuhan Institute of Virology – it had all the makings of a Hollywood blockbuster.

However, upon closer inspection, the hype surrounding this seemingly gargantuan field of research does not live up to the reality of what appears to be a rather unremarkable area of research. While strides have been made in bacteria ‘gain of function’ research, very little if any actual progress has been made in the virus department.

In this video presentation, New Zealand’s Dr Sam Bailey dispels some of the popular myths surrounding ‘gain of function’ research, and shows why this popular conspiracy theory is actually being used to further advance the increasingly overblown ‘global pandemic’ narrative which is still being used by governments to terrorise and lockdown their populations and bleed economies dry. Watch:

And then I found the following.  I hardly ever follow Kevin McCairn – his livestreams are always way, way too long and I am always left thinking “please cut to the chase”. However, this time I felt relieved that I took the time out to listen to enough to see that despite the foul language much of what he had to say about the position that “there is no such thing as a virus” was actually quite credible and helped my own thinking about the different narratives that are floating out there.

I may have been a bit too uncritical about Dr. Bailey as it turns out.

Nowadays, In general, I prefer a robust argument to sugar-coated bullshit.

A look At Viral Crank Dr. Sam Bailey (Andrew Kaufman \

Mk 2)

Predictably the video has already been taken down. You will be able to find it at:

Here is a presentation about the “lab leak hypothesis” that is clear as you will ever find – and you don’t have to spent 3 hours to divine the relevant material.

This is a short discussion between Chris Martenson and Geert vanden Bosssche.

I have for some time discerned two basic narratives in the opposition to what is being unleashed on us – the one that appeared shortly after coronavirus appeared on the scene. 

I have been pulling away from the ideas pushed by David Icke, Andrew Kaufmann – and, now by Dr. Sam Bailey that the whole thing is a “scamdemic” because (and here the rigid ideology comes into play), “there is no such thing as a virus”

Until a few days ago I felt I was putting words into the mouths of these people by inferring they would say “there can be no such thing as gain-of-function”. 

But now I see from Henningsen’s work that is EXACTLY what they are saying. 

I heard blanket statements, repeated like a mantra, that “they have not isolated the virus” – but this never made sense to me because in laboratory gain-of-function research that is the first thing they had to do.  Until recently I did not know (or even heard) of any individuals that had had covid-19, so it all seemed a bit a far-fetched to me.

That was before finding out that not just two people I trust (Rick Wyles and Edward Szall of TruNews), but 20 of the staff, had contracted covid-19 and were able to tell how it was for them. 

Am I to think that they “contracted” some vague form of coronavirus or felt ill because of an appearance of “exosomes” (or toxins in their cells), or even worse, they are lying because they are casting doubt on a deeply-held ideology?

As I have said before I have had misgivings about describing covid-19 as a “scamdemic”.  In so many ways it is but the real situation is much more complicated than that.

Now, I have been able to irrevocably throw off one set of assumptions and not remain stuck in the situation as it was a year ago – with empty hospitals, false PCR tests etc. 

What we are left with is a range of possibilities and probabilities. 

The science is not settled and our understanding (if we are at all open-minded) is evolving so we had bloody well have an ongoing debate and never, never get stuck in ideological positions.

From where I am right now I prefer robust debate to sugar-coated, smiley-faced bullshit.

One thought on “Separating the wheat from the chaff on gain-of-function research

  1. “there is no such thing as a virus”.

    What they say in fact, is that viruses are extracellular debris, the Effect not the cause of infection or poisoning.
    Explain why the CDC did not have a quantified virus in July not in Dec of 2020 and instead cultured the so called virus from some so said sars cov infected tissue, in monkey tissue.
    Explain way Christine Massey’s work which came from their own horses mouth: ” FOIs reveal that health/science institutions around the world (211 and counting!) have no record of SARS-COV-2 isolation/purification, anywhere, ever”
    The fact you call the jab, the real bio weapon a “vaccine” is strange
    it doesn’t fit in with someone who seeks the truth.
