Crime Of The Century

Estimated Reading Time: 3 minutes

A number of news sources have reported that it appears the CIA paid off, bribed, or monetarily induced, Covid researchers to change their opinions about the origins of Covid.

Here is what the House Oversight Committee itself said on the matter:


Staff on the Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Pandemic and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence have heard testimony from a whistleblower alleging that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) offered six analysts significant monetary incentives to change their position on COVID-19’s origin. The whistleblower, who presents as a highly credible senior-level CIA officer, alleges that of the seven members assigned to the CIA team tasked with analyzing COVID-19 origins, six officers concluded that the virus likely originated from a lab in Wuhan, China. The CIA, then however, allegedly offered financial incentives to six of the experts involved in the investigation to change their conclusion in favor of a zoonotic origin.

Chairman Wenstrup and Chairman Turner are requesting that all documents and communications related to the CIA’s COVID-19 origins review be made immediately available to the Committees. The Chairmen additionally requested that former CIA COO Andrew Makridis appear for a voluntary transcribed interview on September 26, 2023. Any improper influence exerted by the CIA will be investigated to ensure accountability from the intelligence community.

“According to the whistleblower, at the end of its review, six of the seven members of the Team believed the intelligence and science were sufficient to make a low confidence assessment that COVID-19 originated from a laboratory in Wuhan, China. The seventh member of the Team, who also happened to be the most senior, was the lone officer to believe COVID-19 originated through zoonosis. The whistleblower further contends that to come to the eventual public determination of uncertainty, the other six members were given a significant monetary incentive to change their position,” wrote the Chairmen.


If all this turns out to be true, this story just keeps getting bigger and more sinister by the day.

Let’s review what is now likely known:

The US Government funded research at a laboratory in China, that set loose on the world a plague.  It then set about to bury its own involvement and attacked those who thought the government was involved.  Our own intelligence agencies cooperated with our enemy China, to cover up their joint involvement.  Then, it perverted both science and the press, to further hide its culpability.


Amazingly, there seems little public outrage about this.

I for one, am outraged on a variety of levels.  On a personal level, I have had the bug at least two times and it was very disruptive to life. It has caused trip and social obligation cancellations and is just plain miserable.  But this is hardly the point. These have been minor personal issues.

The COVID-19 virus these guys were playing with, using our money, KILLED MILLIONS OF PEOPLE.  On that basis alone, the people responsible for funding this program and then covering it up are guilty of a ghastly crime.  The crime may be on a scale never seen before and beyond our capacity to repair, as it has so many deleterious implications.

Beyond that, the same bureaucratic machine (the deep state as some put it), then used the crisis they themselves created to deny civil liberties to millions of people, disrupted the world economy, and sent most of the industrialized world into a huge debt and monetary crisis that has destabilized the entire world.

Creating the virus, spreading the virus, suppressing the truth about the virus, perverting the press and scientific journals, killing millions of people, destroying Constitutional liberties and basic human rights, creating worldwide inflation, and burying generations to come in debt…all the while cynically manipulating the truth.

The final insult may be all this was used to change electoral outcomes and shred our democratic procedures.

People wonder today why the country is so torn apart and why skepticism towards government is so high, simply need to look at this story as the primary cause for destroying both faith in our government and the confidence we used to have in the medical profession.

In short, the people responsible for this whole project have done incredible damage to the world and destroyed millions of lives.

Did they intend to do this?  Or is the story even less profound? Was it an outburst of great evil, or the banal actions of self-promoting and self-protective bureaucrats?

Whatever it is, it truly is the crime of the century and deserves some kind of Nuremberg-type tribunal.
