How To Kill a Whole Lot of People: Scripps Scientists Publish How They Made H7N9 Virus More Transmissible

By Janet Phelan

In 2014, a moratorium was placed on federally funded research which involved making flu viruses more lethal. The moratorium was placed after heated debate generated by research published  by a Netherlands team, headed up by Ron Fouchier. Fouchier’s research had produced a strain of H5N1 which was able to go airborne, thus greatly enhancing its ability to spread. Fouchier focused on the transmission of the disease among ferrets, which are the lab stand-in for people.

Scientists Publish Recipe For Making Bird Flu More Contagious

Now, scientists in California have published research concerning enabling the human-to-human transmission of the bird flu virus H7N9. This virus strain is of concern to scientists as it has already infected 1500 people and killed 40% of them. H7N9 has not been known, however, to  spread easily from human contact.

The article explaining the three genetic changes which need to be made to transform H7N9 into a virtual pandemic agent was published on June 15, 2017 in the journal PLOS Pathogens.

Three mutations switch H7N9 influenza to human-type receptor specificity

According to Scripps biologist Jim Paulsen, as quoted in an NPR article, “As scientists we’re interested in how the virus works…. We’re trying to just understand the virus so that we can be prepared.”

A Few Genetic Tweaks To Chinese Bird Flu Virus Could Fuel A Human Pandemic

The NPR article quotes Paulsen as stating he wants next to test the mutated strain on ferrets.

Reuters reported on a number of scientists who were enthusiastic about the Scripps findings. Reuters quoted immunology expert Fiona Culley, who stated that “This study will help us to monitor the risk posed by bird flu in a more informed way, and increasing our knowledge of which changes in bird flu viruses could be potentially dangerous will be very useful in surveillance.”

Three mutations could make bird flu a potential pandemic: study

Reuters also quoted  virologist Wendy Barclay. “These studies keep H7N9 virus high on the list of viruses we should be concerned about,” she said. “The more people infected, the higher the chance that the lethal combination of mutations could occur.”

Not all the scientists interviewed were happy about the research. When posed with the question of scientists making the genetic changes in the actual H7N9 virus, David Relman, a Stanford professor of microbiology and immunology, was quoted by NPR as stating, “I would be very hesitant, were they to want to do that. In fact, I would be reluctant to have them do that.”

What are the chances that this research may be used for nefarious purposes?

Since 2001, the US government has poured over  $100 billion dollars into what was initially called “Biodefense” but has  euphemistically been renamed “Health Security.” Many of these programs are dual-use; that is to say the research can be used for either protection or weaponization. Scientists argue that it is necessary to first create the weapon (in this case a pandemic agent) in order to research the cure.

However, the US’s record of straightforwardness surrounding her “Biodefense” or “Health Security” programs has been abysmal. The limp-wristed investigation into the anthrax mailings of 2001, in which federal investigators neglected or refused to consider any lab but Fort Detrick as the locus for mailing the anthrax spores — which killed five and sickened over a dozen — resulted in the probable culprit at US Army’s Dugway Proving Ground getting a “Get out of Jail Free” card.

It was less than two  years ago when Dugway was caught sending live anthrax through the mail to labs, worldwide. Initially, it was thought that nine labs received the live anthrax. The number soon expanded and it was ultimately admitted that 575 separate shipments of live anthrax had gone out in the span of a decade.

CDC: DoD anthrax errors involved 575 shipments

The official excuse, “We didn’t know our deactivating equipment wasn’t working!” was suspect, given numerous earlier reports that the equipment was faulty.

It has also come to light that the US has been leading the UN around by its virtual nose and providing false information both to the Biological Weapons Convention and also to the 1540 Committee concerning its “Biodefense” programs.

The  reality is that the sort of research that delves into how to make H7N9 spread easily and efficiently among humans is the kind of research that should raise substantial alarm. According to sources in the US government, the moratorium on publishing this type of research is soon to be lifted. Shortly, anyone with two specimen vials to rub together may very well be able to surf the Web and learn how to create a worldwide plague. And in our current technocracy, with its worship of science as an inherent good, there just doesn’t seem to be much concern about this.

In 1998, Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said,“Iraq is a long way from [America], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risk that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face. And it is a threat against which we must and will stand firm.”

We never found those weapons in Iraq. In our zeal to protect ourselves from bogeymen and “rogue states,” we may well have become the very threat that we feared.

  1. Wow, our tax dollars not preventing disease, but making it worse, thanks goat worshipers.

  2. I find highly suspect that this was absolutely NOT to ‘see’ how the virus works. IT is known that viruses mutate, but to deliberately manipulate a genetic mutation to make the virus highly transmissible between humans, reeks of intended evil. What a great way to decimate a population, say, an interred population that politically may be inconvenient to the powers that be , therefore rounding them up, 102putting into Fema camps under that atrocious bill passed buy the evil Obama to inter, without trial, for indeterminate period, someone, or groups, because of what they MAY do…….
    Quite a Nazi type of portent……a possible new twist on Nazi Extermination camps, mass deaths easily blamed on a virulent illness, that spreads, due to close quarters one would experience in such a detainee environment. And how easily the modern sheeple population would believe such a a scenario.
    The American shadow government is no friend of the Constitution nor its citizens.

  3. WE could have cured cancer, we COULD have had towns on the MOON!


  4. I’ve been to Ft. Dietrick. It would scare the hell out of every human. The United States has broken almost every treaty they have ever signed, Including biowarfare. There are enough germs stored there to depopulate the earth three times over.

    Trust me, I’m from the government and I’m here to help…

  5. Pray for your lives people! We ain’t seen nuthin yet!!!

  6. People who purposefully make viruses more lethal should be charged with crimes against humanity.

  7. I’m sorry but your defense of the US scientists, muted as it is (in our zeal to protect ourselves) is way off the mark. Let’s call a spade a spade. The US has desired a weapon of mass death forever and has paid billions to find it. The US wouldn’t hesitate to kill half the World if it would result in full spectrum dominance and more profit. That is the truth so don’t try to rationalize a degenerate search for a means of genocide!

    • It is not just the US. It is an evil global power group of the world’s wealthiest families called by many names: Buiderbergs, Freemasons, Tri-Lateral Commission, Club of Rome, etc., but are all actually branches of one group. One of their main goals is to cull the population. I and many others simply refer to them as The Powers That Be or TPTB. They have been around for generations becoming cohesive, as far as I know, during the beginnings of western civilization; but they have roots going back to ancient Summeria, aka, Babylon.
      Actually, the US is very new to the game, having only been around 300 years.

  8. Vitamin C, D, Selenium, Zinc and Colloidal Silver. Load up!

  9. This is scary, but everyone should realize that blood ozone therapy is effective against all bacterial and viral infections. That is, if you can find a doctor who offers this treatment. Damn few of them do, and most others don’t want to know about something that has been proven to work for over half a century.

  10. And I saw a vision of the 4 Horsemen,
    White Horse – the first horse was White: the WHITE rider is generally referred to as “Conquest”.[1] The name could also be construed as “Victory”, as in the translation found in the Jerusalem Bible (the Greek words are derived from the verb νικάω, to conquer or vanquish). He carries a bow, and wears a victor’s crown.
    Red Horse – When He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come.” And another, a RED horse, went out; and to him who sat on it, it was granted to take peace from the earth, and that men would slay one another; and a great sword was given to him.
    Black Horse – When He broke the third seal, I heard the third living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a BLACK horse; and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not damage the oil and the wine.”
    Pale Horse – When the Lamb broke the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come.” I looked, and behold, an ASHEN horse; and he who sat on it had the name Death; and Hades was following with him. Authority was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to KILL WITH THE SWORD and with FAMINE and with PESTILENCE and by the wild beasts of the earth.

    • White horse with the arrow already shot (first horse) is the gospel of Jesus Christ beginning from His Resurrection
      Red horse with the sword is the sign of war
      Black horse represents famine (food scales)
      Pale horse (ashen) is the sign of plague (weaponized virus) bringing on death as a result of the red & black horses.
      All 4 horses run as in a race to the end of the age when Christ will return with His Overcomers to destroy Antichrist and his followers, crush human government, and set up His Kingdom on the whole earth.
      And the Spirit and the Bride say come. Amen, come Lord Jesus!

  11. Read:

    Killing us softly – Causes and Consequences of the global depopulation policy by Kevin Mugur Galalae (2013) – e-book

    and more recently:

    Turning Nature against Man: The Role of Pandemics, Vaccines and Genetics in the UN’s Plan to Halt Population Growth, also by Kevin Galalae (2016)

    “Medicine and public health are compromised by the highest echelons of science, industry and public administration for the geopolitical objectives of international cohabitation, preservation of resources, environmental conservation and decarbonization, all of which hinge on depopulation.”

  12. This is not new. They have been attempting to turn cancer into a virus.
    Suggested read: ‘Dr. Mary’s Monkeys’ by Haslam.
    Hint: During the Kennedy assassination era LHO and a 1964 murder of Dr. Mary Sherman and a girl protege named Judyth Vary Baker, she is till in hiding.

  13. Btw: Soon after all the polio vaccines started.

  14. “How To Kill a Whole Lot of People”

    Thought they were going to talk about GMO’s, Chemtrails, aspartame, Hollywood movies, inciting race and political riots. You know, the usual suspects.

  15. Native Americans can’t wait
